PROPHET MUHAMMAD in the Bible

PROPHET MUHAMMAD (pbuh)  
IN THE BIBLE

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in the Old Testament:

The Qur’an mentions in Surah Al-Araf chapter 7 verse 157:

"Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures) in the law and the Gospel".

1. MUHAMMAD (PBUH) 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 after
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):

i) 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]

ii) Both were married and had children. Jesus (pbuh) according to the Bible did not marry nor had children.

iii) 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 verbatim.

"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]

iv) 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).

v) 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."

iv) 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).

2. It is Mentioned in the book of Deuteronomy chapter 18:19
    
"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."

3. Muhammad (pbuh) is prophesised in the book of Isaiah:

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 not learned."

When Archangel Gabrail commanded Muhammad (pbuh) by saying Iqra - "Read", he replied, "I am not learned".

  4. prophet Muhammad (pbuh) mentioned by name in the old testament:
    
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is mentioned by name in the Song of Solomon chapter 5 verse 16:

"Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem."

"His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters
of Jerusalem."

In the Hebrew language im is added for respect. Similarely im is added after the name of Prophet Muhammad     
(pbuh) to make it Muhammadim. In English translation they have even translated the name of Prophet Muhammad     (pbuh) as "altogether lovely", but in the Old Testament in Hebrew, the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is yet      present.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in the New Testament:

Al-Qur'an Chapter 61 Verse 6:

"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.

1. John chapter 14 verse 16:
    "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever."

2. Gospel of 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."

3. Gospel of 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".

"Ahmed" or "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    
Muhammad (pbuh).

4. Gospel of 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 referes to none other than Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)

=====================

So if the name of Mohammad is claimed to have been translated, then other names must of also been translated, lets take a look into that. Jesus was the Messiah (Messiah being a Hebrew word), and Messiah has been translated to Christ, resulting to Jesus Christ. How does that come about? The Hebrew name Messiah means “to Anoint” , “to rub” . Now Messiah in Greek is translated “Christos” , Christos meaning “to Anoint” , “to Rub” . And from "Christos" comes "Christ" , being a name that Jesus himself never heard, since Christ is a TRANSLATION OF A NAME. In the original language, all this becomes clear doesn't it! Now lets talk about the name Jesus, his real name is "Esa", "Eshua", "Esus" so he never heard the name "Jesus" neither, oups! But see, there’s a sickness in the West were they always add “J” were they aren’t, like for example: Yusef is translated to Joseph, Yacob is translated to Jacob, Yohana is translated to John. Latinizing the word sounding it westernized: Yehovah Witness to Jehovah Witness. So "Esa the Mesiah" never heard of a man called "Jesus Christ" ! In the Quran we call him Isa: “Such is Isa, son of Marium; (this is) the saying of truth about which they dispute. It is not befitting to (the majesty of) Allah that He should beget a son. Glory be to Him! when He determines a matter, He only says to it, "Be", and it is.” (Quran 19:34-35). The true “J” walking J!

Before Jesus (as) departed, he told Peter, being his leading disciple, to feed his flock, feed his lamb and feed his sheep, meaning “look after the others”. He was the most mature, the best qualified to look on others. But theres one problem, again, Peter never heard of the name Peter cause his real name was Simon, oups! Simon was a very militant person, and Jesus described him as “Simon thao at kefus” , "and on this Rock I shall build my Church" … "Kefus" in Hebrew means “ROCK” . So Jesus describes Simon as a Rock of stone, being the solid foundation of his church. In Greek, "Rock" is translated "Petros" , from were comes the word Westernized name "Peter" . Peter never heard the word Peter in his life!!! So I hope you guys get the point of changing names and translating names which lead to the extinction of the original names. And this caused by the ruling race adjusting the sounds of names to match their sounds, and that’s a clear Historical fact. (Saul=Jew but Paul=Greco-remain) (Essua=Jew but Jesus=other than Jew) and so on… So lets return to the topic with a passage from the Quran:

“And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said: "O Children of Israel! I am the apostle of God (sent) to you, confirming the Law (which came) before me, and giving Glad Tidings of an apostle to come after me, whose name shall be "Ahmad". But when he came to them with Clear Signs, they said, "This is evident sorcery!"
(Quran 61-6)

Ahmad is a synonym of Mohammad, it is the same name, so we are left with no other alternative but to analyze the Bible and find more passages talking about Mohammad (pbuh) as the earlier passage. Now this following passage is VERY interesting ladies and gentlemen: “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.” (john 16-7). He says if I don’t go, the comforter will not come to you, WE say that comforter is Mohammad (pbuh).. But Christians say Jesus didn’t say Mohammad, he said comforter. But then I ask them did Jesus speak English? They respond no, he spoke Hebrew! So then I ask: what did he say? They then reply they don’t know!

========================  

THE ONLY MAN IN HISTORY THAT FITS THE PROPHESY:

There is a Prophesy in the book of Deuteronomy 18:18 which states that God would raise up a Prophet after Moses, which many Muslims are quite familiar with. My attempt will be to present old facts in a somewhat new light, so bear with me. In this verse, God tells Moses to tell the Israelites the following: "I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their (The Israelites) brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him."

A Prophet, like Moses, from among the brothers of the Israelites. Who are the brothers of the Israelites? Israelites are descendants of Isaac, Abraham's 2nd son, whereas the Arabs, or Ishmaelites are descendants of Abraham's 1st son, Ishmael. (This is not only according to Muslim history, but the Bible as well, and if you want proof of this just message me and ask.)
 
The question need not be asked, but I shall ask it anyways. Was Muhammad an Arab, a descendant of Ishmael? Most certainly he was, and in fact, Muslims can even trace his lineage to Ishmael.
So the next question is, is Muhammad (saas) like Moses? After all, the verse says, "…a prophet like you (Moses)" Well, let us consult a Christian Scholar, let us ask him if Muhammad is like Moses.

If we read the book "Dictionary of the Bible" by Reverend James Dow, under the heading "Moses" we read the following:

"As a statesman and a lawgiver Moses is the creator of the Jewish people. He found a loose conglomeration of Semitic people, none of whom had been anything but a slave, and whose ideas of religion were a complete confusion. He led them out and he hammered them into a nation. with a law and a national pride, and a compelling sense of being chosen by a particular God who was supreme. The only man in history who can be compared even remotely to him is Mohamet. The scripture account tends to elaborate for the sake of impression, but behind all the elaborations stands a man of tremendous worth and achievement, whose mark upon the life of the world is as important as it is incalculable." -Moses, pp. 402-403.

Who said that? Did the Muslim say that? Did the Muslims threaten this man? Did they say, "Look, put this in your dictionary of the Bible or else no oil!" -Did they? No. James Dow, a studied Reverend said it, based on his own rational in depth study of theology, that no man in history can be compared to Moses, except the Prophet Muhammad (saas). No man in history is like the Prophet Moses except one man…the Prophet Muhammad (saas).
