Yet, the Jews rejected Muhammad as a prophet, and denied his preaching as parallel to Moses' religion, as he claimed. They insisted that the Qur'an could not be a revelation, nor Muhammad a prophet, and that they believe only in what God has given to them, as they were told by their ancestors, and resisted Muhammad's claim of being the last prophet. They declared that to be a prophet, he must prove that he received permission from God to change the Bible by making miracles, and Muhammad could do nothing.
Moreover, Jews and Christians exerted pressures on Muhammad to join them, although they did not recognize authenticity of his prophetical inspiration. Their claim to be God's chosen people was rejected. Allah gave his religion to the Jews, and took it from them, for they were transgressors. The same occurred with the Christians.
This was a serious challenge to Muhammad, and the only response could be that the deviations were in the Jewish part: they had concealed the coming of Muhammad and altered their Scriptures. To deal with that, the new religious community obtained its independence by referring to the pure monotheistic religion of Abraham, which Allah had given to Muhammad, the last prophet.
Then, after his great success in Medinathe split from the Jews, and the battles of Badr and the Trench, Muhammadriding on the waves of political achievements and military successes, had begun to operate as a new religious leader.
