Penn State wrestler Aaron Brooks defeated Northern Iowa’s Parker Keskeisen to win his third straight individual NCAA title over the weekend. Moments after winning the championship, Brooks talked about how his belief in Jesus Christ helped push him to the win.

Not only did Brooks profess his Christian faith during his post-match interview, but also he called Muhammad a false prophet. That caught the attention of many who are now calling Brooks anti-Muslim.

“Christ’s resurrection is everything,” Brooks said after his win. “Not just his life, his death and resurrection. You can only get that through Him. The Holy Spirit only through Him. No false prophets, no Muhammad or no anyone else. Only Jesus Christ himself.

Muhammad is the founder and main prophet of Islam.

The 22-year-old was called out by a number of people on social media for his comment about Muhammad being a false prophet.

According to Fox News, Brooks told the Penn State student newspaper about his faith and how he believes there is a higher purpose behind his dominance on the wrestling mat.

“This platform is great to wrestle on, but it’s to glorify God,” he said. “This stuff comes and goes. I’m blessed with this opportunity, these gifts. They’re not mine. He gives them to me to bring glory to Him.”

Brooks, a senior from Hagerstown, Maryland, helped the Nittany Lions to what was their 10th team title since the 2009-10 season with his win in the 184-pound finals on Saturday.

    There is a book called Sword and Scimitar: Fourteen Centuries of War Between Islam and the West by Raymond Ibrahim, an Egyptian Christian. The foreword alone contains more than most Americans are taught in school. Americans and Christians will do well to learn this history.
