Inscription by the Caliph Muawiyah in 662 AD

Note that it

  1. starts with a cross
  2. The translation is
    In the days of the servant of God Muʿāwiya (abdalla Maavia), the commander of the faithful (amēra almoumenēn) the hot baths of the people there were saved and rebuilt by ʿAbd Allāh son of Abū Hāshim (Abouasemou), the governor, on the fifth of the month of December, on the second day (of the week), in the 6th year of the indiction, in the year 726 of the colony, according to the Arabs (kata Arabas) the 42nd year, for the healing of the sick, under the care of Ioannes, the official of Gadara.
  3. Muawiyah is not called Caliph (Khalifat) but comander of the faithful -- only later do Muslims call him Caliph
  4. There is no mention of Muslims, the Qur'an or Muhammad! Otherwise every Muslim monument refers to "In the name of Muhammad"

Early Islamic coins

Note that they have a Cross on them! Yet the Qur'an says They did not slay him, neither crucified him" (Qur’an 4:157)

Muslims do not believe that Christ died (he was "replaced") or rose from the death.

Yet these coins also have the word muhammad so "Let him be praised in the name of God"
