Prophet Muhammad in
The Qur’an mentions in Surah Al-Araf chapter 7
"Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find
mentioned in their own (scriptures) in the law and the Gospel".
Prophet Muhammad, prophesised in the
Book of Deuteronomy:
Almighty God speaks to Moses in Book of Deuteronomy chapter 18 verse 18:
"I will raise them up
a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and I will put my words in his mouth;
and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him."
The Christians say that
this prophecy refers to Jesus (pbuh) because Jesus (pbuh) was like Moses (pbuh). Moses (pbuh) was a Jew, as well as Jesus (pbuh) was a Jew. Moses (pbuh) was a Prophet and
Jesus (pbuh) was also a Prophet.
If these two are the only
criteria for this prophecy to be fulfilled, then all the Prophets of the Bible who came
Moses (pbuh) such as Solomon, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Malachi, John the
Baptist, etc. (pbut) will
fulfill this prophecy since all were Jews as well as prophets.
However, it is Prophet
Muhammad (pbuh) who is like Moses (pbuh):
Both had a father and a mother, while Jesus (pbuh)
was born miraculously without any male intervention.
[Mathew 1:18 and Luke 1:35 and also Al-Qur'an 3:42-47]
Both were married and had children. Jesus (pbuh)
according to the Bible did not marry nor had children.
Both died natural deaths. Jesus (pbuh) has been
raised up alive. (4:157-158)
Muhammad (pbuh) is from among the brethren of Moses (pbuh). Arabs are brethren of Jews.
Abraham (pbuh) had two sons: Ishmail and Isaac (pbut). The Arabs are the descendants of
Ishmail (pbuh) and the Jews are the descendants of Isaac (pbuh).
Words in the mouth:
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was
unlettered and whatever revelations he received from Almighty God he repeated them
"I will raise them up
a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth;
and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him." [Deuteronomy 18:18]
Both besides being Prophets were also kings i.e.
they could inflict capital punishment. Jesus (pbuh) said, "My
kingdom is not of this world." (John 18:36).
Both were accepted as Prophets by their people in
their lifetime but Jesus (pbuh) was rejected by his
people. John chapter 1 verse 11 states, "He came unto his own, but
his own received him not."
Both brought new laws and new regulations for
their people. Jesus (pbuh) according to the Bible did not bring any
new laws. (Mathew 5:17-18).
It is Mentioned in the book of Deuteronomy chapter
"And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not harken unto my words which he
shall speak in my name, I will require it of him."
Muhammad (pbuh) is prophesised in the book of
It is mentioned in the book of Isaiah chapter 29 verse 12:
"And the book is
delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am
When Archangel Gabrail
commanded Muhammad (pbuh) by saying Iqra - "Read", he replied, "I am not
Al-Qur'an Chapter 61
"And remember, Jesus,
the son of Mary, said, 'O Children of Israel! I am the messenger of Allah (sent) to you,
confirming the Law (which came) before me and giving glad tidings of a messenger to come
after me, whose name shall be Ahmed.' But when he came to them with clear signs, they
said, 'This is evident sorcery!' "
All the prophecies
mentioned in the Old Testament regarding Muhammad (pbuh) besides applying to the Jews also
hold good for the Christians.
chapter 14 verse 16:
"And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another
Comforter, that he may abide with you forever."
John chapter 15 verse 26:
"But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the
Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he
shall testify of me."
John chapter 16 verse 7:
"Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I
go not away, the Comforter will not
come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you".
"Muhammad" meaning "the one who praises" or "the praised
one" is almost the translation of the
Greek word Periclytos. In the Gospel of John 14:16, 15:26, and 16:7. The word
'Comforter' is used in the English translation for the Greek
word Paracletos which means advocate or a kind friend rather than a comforter.
Paracletos is the warped reading for Periclytos. Jesus (pbuh) actually
prophesised Ahmed by name. Even the
Greek word Paraclete refers to the Prophet (pbuh) who is a mercy for all creatures.
Some Christians say that
the Comforter mentioned in these prophecies refers to the Holy Sprit. They fail to realise
that the prophecy clearly says that only if Jesus (pbuh) departs will the Comforter come.
The Bible states that the
Holy Spirit was already present on earth before and during the time of Jesus (pbuh), in
the womb of Elizabeth, and again when Jesus (pbuh) was being baptised,
etc. Hence this prophecy refers to none other than Prophet
John chapter 16 verse 12-14:
"I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when
he, the Spirit of truth is
come, he will guide you unto all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever
he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to
come. He shall glorify me".
The Sprit of Truth, spoken about in this prophecy
refers to none other than Prophet
