comment Among the gentiles, why Job and Bilaam were recognized as prophets whereas Muhammad was not?
@DoubleAA no. we know more or less what will happen as the rambam explains there. we're just not sure about the details. return of prophecy is part of the final redemption (Geulah). how about you bringing a source that it is separate from the Geulah.

God clearly spoke to Job. what do you mean by "Job was not a prophet"

we cannot know the exact details of this as the Rambam says chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/1188357/jewish/… but we will see the prophecies being fulfilled such as the ingathering of the exiles to israel. Certainly someone like muhamad who went around beheading people who did not believe in him, (and who ISIS is following his example today) does not fit the bill.

i think the muslims claim the sages lied so this does not really answer from their perspective. would be improved to add some verses on this

imagine two people are going b4 a judge. one is humbled and pleading for mercy, while the other is chewing gum and doesnt care. who do you think will be looked at more favorably? and which one has more chance of improving his ways?

try with a suitable chavrusa and without. decide which is better for you. most people find a chavrusa helps enormously

well a girl with a two foot long nose is not going to look to good. things needs to be in correct proportion and with symmetry. this is why all animals Gd created display symmetry
