Christians if Muhammad was a liar why did God allow him to live and prosper and triumph against his enemies and delude billions of people?
If you read anything about the early history of Islam, you'll find that Muhammad was opposed by polytheists and atheists and Christians and Jews in the beginning of his mission. He had multiple battles against them and was greatly oppressed when he was in Mecca and when he and his followers were a minority. He survived tens of assassination attempts, a group of enraged polytheists broke into his home and tried to kill him but they didn't find him. A rock was going to be thrown on him from the roof but he missed the invitation. Poison was put in his food but he didn't eat it. They wanted to drive him off cliff but he narrowly escaped...He was strangled, he was stabbed, he could have died in battle. So why did God help him escape all these?

Jesus is the "only begotten Son of God". "In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it. ...And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth.-John1:1-5,14.
Biblical prophecy indicated all along that the Messiah of God would come and when He would arrive. One of these prophecies is the 70 weeks prophecy of Daniel 9:24-27. He was crucified on the day predicted that the Messiah would be "cut off" in this prophecy - 483 years from the decree to rebuild Jerusalem after the Babylonian captivity.
Repent and accept Him as Lord and Savior or face Him in judgement:
"since it is a righteous thing with God to repay with tribulation those who trouble you, and to give you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ. These shall be punished with everlasting destruction from the presence of the Lord and from the glory of His power, when He comes, in that Day, to be glorified in His saints and to be admired among all those who believe, because our testimony among you was believed."-2Thessalonians1:6-10

He wasn't necessarily a liar. He was just a misguided individual whose ideas appealed to many people. Besides, your description of him could just as easily be applied to Hitler.

Hitler also survived so many attempts to kill him, and he was a liar. Yet God let him live to cause so much damage, look now in the us, Trump is a serial liar causing so much misery and God let him lives. So the arguments you put forward are no good, you have to judge the value of a religion in how much it makes people happy and how tolerant they toward other religions and both christians and muslims are failing, maybe not individually, but collectively and that is because they got power and get into politics.

'God' doesn't allow or disallow anything.
BTW, there are 2.3 Billion Christians, so going by your logic, they are correct.

I would like to tackle this interesting question from the Christian Biblical perspective as far as I understand it.
I believe and think that you might too, that just in general, evil people are allowed to thrive while some just people have their lives cut short unfairly or unjustly. This is observable verifiable fact by both Christians and Muslims. Therefore, just because someone survives attempts on their life does not prove they are favored or not by God, so that is a verifiable errant logic.
From God's perspective just in general, He is sovereign and determines what He considers a righteous or just use of someone's life for His purposes when they commit to Him or are in His service. That can at times be beyond our understanding due to not knowing all of the facts or circumstances. I think that applies to both Christians and Muslims (and Jews).
Jesus gives the parable of the wheat and the tares in His teachings to describe how this age will be - the age from the time of His arrival/death until His return. A field is sowed with wheat, but the enemy comes and sows tares which are similar to wheat, but not usable, in the field later. They both are growing together and the workers ask who did it and if they should pull the tares. The owner answers no, let the wheat grow with the tares until the time of the harvest or you will pull up the wheat with the tares. Then they are separated after harvest and the tares will be gathered and throne into the fire and burned - (Matthew 13:24-30, and He explains it in Matt.13:36-43).
This is essentially the perspective that I think applies to and answers this question, although I'm sure more can be said in a genuine discussion and comparison of Muslim and Christian theology.

What are you talking about? Islam is better than idolatry. God allowed Muhammad to saved a huge chunk of Asia from idolatry. He wasn't a prophet, but in some ways he did the will of God.

As a Christian, God promise Abraham's children to have many nations. Wether we came from Isaac or Ishmael. Jacob or Esau. Faith in Jesus is the only thing I trust.
Muhammad also followed The God of Abraham. But my heart and focus with always be Jesus.

Why does God allow evil men to prosper? There will always be self-proclaimed false prophets. True prophets turn people to God. False prophets turn people to them.

AND [know that] all mankind were once but one single community, and only later did they begin to hold divergent views. And had it not been for a decree- that had already gone forth from thy Sustainer, all their differences would indeed have been settled [from the outset].
Muhammed was not a barbarian. These are the words Muhammad lived by:
Hence, pay heed unto God, and pay heed unto the Apostle, and be ever on your guard [against evil]; and if you turn away, then know that Our Apostle's only duty is a clear delivery of the message [entrusted to him].
But do not revile those [beings] whom they invoke instead of God, lest they revile God out of spite, and in ignorance: for, goodly indeed have We made their own doings appear unto every community. In time, [however,] unto their Sustainer they must return: and then He will make them [truly] understand all that they were doing.
THERE SHALL BE no coercion in matters of faith. Distinct has now become the right way from [the way of] error: hence, he who rejects the powers of evil and believes in God has indeed taken hold of a support most unfailing, which shall never give way: for God is all-hearing, all-knowing.

Muslims, if the early Christians, who claimed that Jesus rose from the dead, were liars, why did God allow them to spread their message and delude billions of people.
If any god existed, it could have stopped anybody from spreading ideas about false gods, if it wanted to. Either no gods exist, or any that do are not bothered about what we believe.
