Quote:

Muhammad’s transition from humble messenger to political leader, and from peaceful preacher to war leader, forms the substance of the story. The factional struggles, political assassinations, night flights and pitched battles that surround it are reminiscent of the experience of another prophet, the Mormon leader Joseph Smith, as is the role of revelation in exonerating sexual impropriety — in Muhammad’s case to allay suspicions of infidelity surrounding his third wife, Aisha.

Joseph testified of Christ, and indeed spoke and wrote revelations that have been fulfilled, both during is life and beyond. Muhammad denied the divinity of Christ and from what I was told he (Muhammad) had on really big vision or revelation while in Jerusalem, at the "Dome of the Rock".

True Prophets... (Beyond BC and as Mormons believe did), declare Christ,

False Prophets...deny the divinity of Christ in every age.
