YOGIC SPIRITUALITY AND ISLAM
His revelations appeared as a trace that he went into periodically. He accepted these experiences as a direct communion with God that no other human being could have. He claimed to talk with the angel Gabriel and with God (Allah) himself, who he states appointed him as His final Prophet. Mohammed spoke of the Koran as the Word of God, given to him for all humanity for the rest of history until the Day of the Final Judgment. Mohammed always referred to himself as the Prophet and servant of God. At his death he spoke of going to Heaven, not of merging into the formless Divine.

Mohammed does not speak of the Self or Atman or make statements like "I am God (aham Brahmasmi)," the hallmark of Self-realized sages. According to orthodox Islam no individual should proclaim "I am God," which is a delusion. God and the individual are different and the individual should never arrogate realization of God to himself. For saying this the ninth century Sufi Al-Hallaj was cut into pieces and thrown into a river by other Muslims. The reason is because Mohammed, the greatest and final Prophet, did not say this and for a Muslim to claim even what Mohammed did not, would be blasphemy of the greatest order.

Mohammed does speak of various mystical experiences, including communication with spirits, fighting with devils, and the descent of Divine grace and power. He speaks of effacement into Allah, but God or Allah as the Creator is the supreme term.
