Muhammad suffered numerous psychological disorders, not the least of which was grandiosity, a pathological drive to aggrandize one’s importance. The strongest evidence for this is that he preached that he will be with God on the Day of Judgment to “intercede” in deciding who is spared the flames of hell or who gets released from the furnace and allowed into paradise–God’s right hand man, so to speak.

At the end of his career, his grandiose idea about himself leaped beyond the bounds of the planet when he became The Gatherer—the one who would be the first to be resurrected on the Day of Judgment and lead the multitudes for their adjudication before God.
