PROPHET MUHAMMUD IN BIBLE

INTRODUCTION

 Many religions came into existence while many are dead.

Among existing religions Islam and Christianity occupy top positions.These religions are followed in countries around the world.

This two religions have different ideologies but share some common faith.

Christianity believes Jesus was born without male intervention this faith is also shared by Islam.

Christianity believes before Christ many prophets of God appeared. They were given revelations by God, Islam too accepts this.

Islam believes Jesus as the mighty messenger of God.

Christianity believes in after life . They believe their life in earth should be according to God s laws .This will decide their eternal life, people will be rewarded heaven or hell. Islam seriously stresses on after life. These are some faith common between Islam and Christianity.

But in some faith Christianity and Islam differs. Basic Christian faith is Jesus was born of God .

Basic faith of Islam is : Allah was not begotten, Nor does he beget, he does not have female companions, nor does he have relatives. Islam severely condemns this. Jesus was not the son of God in literal sense.

Abraham, Moses and Jesus were prophets of God. Islam says Jesus was not the son of God but he was a prophet of God.

 Adam sinned by disobeying God as a result his descendants were born sinners . This is the basic belief of Christianity.

Islam believes Adam sinned by disobeying God, But his sin was not passed to his descendants , a new born child does not inherit sin.

This is another faith where Christianity differs from Islam .

As humans are born sinners it becomes essential to sacrifice . Christianity believes that Jesus sacrificed himself for the sins of mankind.

Bible says Jesus was unwilling to be sacrificed. But he was captured by his enemies and punished. Jesus cries My God My God why have you forsaken me . It clearly contradicts Bible s view of Jesus self sacrifice. Islam too takes this stand.

Even if Jesus self sacrificed himself, it would only be an atonement for his sins and not the sins of mankind, this is Islam stand .

No country will punish a son for his father s crime. When men are intelligent enough to stop such laws is it reasonable to believe God would give such a law ? Is God less intelligent than Man? This logical question is raised by Islam.

These are major differences between Christainity and Islam.

Islam believes revelations were given to the prophets of God but were manipulated by men.

Islam believes some words of God are still retained in the Bible. There are many verses in the Bible which prophesise the arrival of Prophet Muhammud.

This prophecies are found in Old testament and New testament of the Bible.

The goal of this book is to prove prophet Muhammud (saw) was prophesised in Bible and he was an prophet sent by God to all mankind.

If christians read this book with an open heart they would inevitably conclude that Prophet Muhammud (saw) was an messenger sent by God. We pray that you might be guided into the truth. P.Jainul Abideen

PROPHECIES OF OLD TESTAMENT .

WHO IS LIKE MOSES ?

Deuteronomy is fifth book of old testament. These books are believed to be written by Moses. Two prophecies are found in this book.

Moses delivers a message to Israelites, God speaks with Moses .These two prophecies are similar and they pinpoint the future arrival of a prophet.

Moses was explaining the rules to the Israelites. He was teaching them the permitted and forbidden things of God. He mentions the arrival of a prophet.

15 The LORD thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me; unto him ye shall hearken;

(DEUTERONOMY 18:15)

God speaks to Moses in the following verses.

17 And the LORD said unto me, They have well spoken that which they have spoken.

18 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 18:17,18)

Who is prophesied here?

Jews believe it isJoshua .Christians believe it is Jesus.

If every word of this prophecy is analyzed we know it is not Joshua. Before knowing who is mentioned in this prophecy, we need to conform that it was neitherJoshua nor Jesus.

To whom did Moses say this? To the Israelites. This message was not meant for one or two of them but was for the whole Israelites. If the prophet was from Israelites he would have said this in this way will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee of thy own . However Moses said of thy brethren . As it is mentioned the prophet will rise from the brethren it is clear he is not an Israelite.

Note what God says to Moses ! Even those verses convey the same meaning.

 Rise up unto thee- That is for the Israelites- midst of thee- That is not from the Israelites. But it is mentioned from the Brethren - i.e from the brethren of the Israelites .

Moses and God s declaration to the Israelites makes it clear that the prophet will not rise from the Israelites.

Jews say it isJoshua. HoweverJoshua was a Jew.

Christians say it is Jesus .However Jesus was a Jew.

This verses do not refer Israelites. So it can neither be Joshua nor Jesus.

Who is referred in this verse? Let us analyse this by Bible.

He would rise from the brethren of Israelites. Who are the brethren of Israelites ? Let us analyse this in the light of Bible.

Abraham fathered Ishmael and Isaac. Ishmael s descendants are called Ishmaelites and Isaac descendants are Israelites.The book of Genesis explains this in detail.

Bible says the Israelites were the brethren of Ishmaelites. There is no other interpretation for this. The following Bible verse explains it clearly.

18 And they dwelt from Havilah unto Shur, that is before Egypt, as thou goest toward Assyria: and he died in the presence of all his brethren.

(GENESIS 25:18)

This verse says Ishmael dwelt in shur and his brethren was Issac.

Prophecy says a prophet will rise from the brethren of Israelites. This means he is an Ishmaelite and not Israelite. How can this prophecy be about Jesus or Joshua when it is clearly mentioned he is an Ishmaelite.

Christians and Jews must think about this.

The only Ishmaelite who has declared himself as the prophet of God is Muhammud(saw) . There are many reasons why we say this prophecy is about prophet Muhammud (saw) .

Moses says like unto me . God said like unto thee . He must be like Moses.

He would resemble Moses in all aspects.

After Moses many prophets of God appeared Daniel, Ezekiel, Solomon, and Jesus. If this verse refers to a prophet then it can be any one of them not necessarily Jesus.

After Moses many prophets of God came. If they are referred then the prophecy would be prophets like unto you .But only one prophet is mentioned. Prophet like you means a Prophet who is like Moses in all respects.

Jesus did not resemble Moses in all respects.

PROPHET ? OR SON ?

Christians believe Moses as a prophet of God. However they believe Jesus as the son of God. If Christians say Jesus is a prophet then he cannot be the son of God. Jesus was not both , if they say he is the son of God then this prophecy is unfulfilled. If they say it applies to him then it is a clear contradiction and a sick joke.

Prophet Muhammad was not called the son of God. He was a prophet like Moses. So this prophecy suits Muhammad (saw).

MIRACULOUS BIRTH:

Moses was born through male intervention. Jesus was born with out Male intervention. Jesus doesnot resemble Moses by birth. Prophet Muhammud was born naturally. This is another resemblance to Moses.

BACHELOR:

Like Moses Muhammad begot children. According to Bible Jesus remained unmarried. This is another difference between Moses and Jesus.

RECOGNIZED IN LIFE TIME :

Moses was accepted as a prophet in his lifetime. Prophet Muhammad was accepted as a prophet in his lifetime. Jesus was unaccepted by Israelites during his lifetime. Even today Jews donot accept Jesus.

11 He came unto his own, and his own received him not.

(JOHN 1:11)

John says Jesus was unaccepted by Jews in his lifetime.

How ever Prophet Muhammad fulfills this condition.

RULERSHIP:

Moses had the dual responsibility of prophet and ruler. Prophet Muhammad similarly ruled his people. Jesus had 12 disciples in his lifetime. He does not resemble Moses .

NATURAL DEATH:

Moses died naturally. Prophet Muhammad died of natural cause. But Christians say Jesus was crucified here again there is no resemblance to Moses.

RESURRECTION:

Moses and Muhammad did not resurrect . But Jesus resurrected on third day.This is another proof that Jesus was not similar to Moses.

HAND OVER RESPONSIBILITY:

Moses selected Joshua as the leader of Israelites . Prophet Muhammad selected Abu-Bakr as his successor.

ENEMIES VANQUISHED:

Moses witnessed his enemies destruction. Prophet Muhammad vanquished his enemies in his lifetime. Jesus suffered defeat in the hands of his enemies. This is another resemblance between Moses and prophet Muhammad.

WARRIORS

Moses and his followers took arms and fought battles. Similarly Prophet Muhammad and his followers fought Battles. However Jesus preached peace .Hence Jesus and Moses are not similar

CRIMINAL LAWS :

Moses punished people for Robbery, Murder, Rape and Prostitution. Prophet Muhammad was given similar Laws and he effectively carried it out. When a woman caught in act of adultery was brought before Jesus he said Those without sin may cast the first stone on her . She was left unharmed.

Moses and Prophet Muhammad tended sheep. They earned their bread. They traveled to foreign countries.There are many other similarities between them. Jesus was totally different from Moses.

It is very clear this prophecy was about prophet Muhammad.

For namesake if we accept Jesus was similar to Moses. Even then it cannot be Jesus because he was an Israelite and the prophecy says the prophet will raise from the tribe of Ishmael.

There is no second thought in accepting that the prophesy speaks of Prophet Muhammad who was very much similar to Moses.

This prophesy was not to know him, but to follow him. And to obey his commands.

Moses prophesied the arrival of prophet. Moses says unto him ye shall hearken .

Only when Prophet Muhammad is obeyed this prophesy would be fulfilled.

Christians who believe Bible as God s word should take a neutral stand and analyze this !

WHO IS THE ATTRACTIVE ONE?

Old testament has a book called psalms. This book was revealed to David by God. King David speaks about a prophet .

The christians believe it as a prophecy of David about Jesus. King David describes the special qualities of prophet.

Only two or three qualities match Jesus .All these qualities match Prophet Muhammad . Men of sufficient intelligence will accept that only he who has all the qualities of the prophet will be the prophet mentioned by Moses.

King David says.

1 My heart is inditing a good matter: I speak of the things which I have made touching the king: my tongue is the pen of a ready writer.

(psalms45:1)

Christians beliefs were shattered by David. David says, the prophet would reign as a king . Jesus was not a king but Prophet Muhammad was a king.

2 Thou art fairer than the children of men: grace is poured into thy lips: therefore God hath blessed thee forever.

(psalms45:2)

This verse says the prophet would be good looking. Now where in the Bible it is mentioned that Jesus was an attractive man. We know from the Bible that Jesus was unattractive.

2 For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant, and as a root out of a dry ground: he hath no form nor comeliness; and when we shall see him, there is no beauty that we should desire him.

(ISAIAH 53:2)

Christian scholars say this was a prophecy about Christ. Let us accept this prophecy was not about Christ. Christians should accept the fact that king David never mentioned Jesus.

King David prophesised an Handsome Man. How can unattractive Jesus become attractive ? The sahabas mention prophet Muhammad (saw) as an attractive man , this corelates with prophecy of David.

3 Gird thy sword upon thy thigh, O most mighty, with thy glory and thy majesty.

(PSALM 45:3)

Sword upon thy thigh is an Indication of a person who fights his enemies. Jesus had no sword with him. He never fought with his enemies. Prophet Muhammad (saw) fought with his enemies it is a fact well known by Christians and others.

4 And in thy majesty ride prosperously because of truth and meekness and righteousness; and thy right hand shall teach thee terrible things.

(PSALMS 45:4)

 King David says the prophet will have glorious victories and his right hand will do terrible things.

Jesus did not achieve any victory not even a small one . His enemies succeded and he was cruelly killed ( according to Christian belief).

 Prophet Muhammad(saw) achieved great victories in his life time. He destroyed his enemies 5 Thine arrows are sharp in the heart of the king's enemies; whereby the people fall under thee.

Did Jesus make use of sharp arrows? Did the arrows pierce his enemies heart? Did tribes come under his power? Definitely not.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) was an expert in Archery - He was good in finding his target .The tribes around him came under his power.

6 Thy throne, O God, is for ever and ever: the sceptre of thy kingdom is a right sceptre.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) established an empire. His Judgement was righteous his throne forever . His tribe rules for the past 1400 years. This is not true forJesus.

7 Thou lovest righteousness, and hatest wickedness: therefore God, thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows.

God gave king David the authority to rule Israel. Prophet Muhammad (saw) ruled many parts of the world. It is mentioned he will rule a bigger kingdom than his fellows and God has anointed him with the oil of gladness.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) kingdom was big than King David .Jesus was neither a king nor did he have a kingdom.

 9 .Kings' daughters were among thy honourable women: upon thy right hand did stand the queen in gold of Ophir.

According to Christian belief Jesus remained unmarried. Prophet Muhammad (saw) had many wives .One of his wives Safiyya bint Huyayy was from a royal family. Mecca's king Abu Sufyan had a daughter named Ummu Habiba who he gave in marriage to Prophet Muhammud (saw). The prophecy of King David suits Muhammad (saw) better.

10 Hearken, O daughter, and consider, and incline thine ear; forget also thine own people, and thy father's house He addresses Israel as a Daughter. Israel is advised to leave her father and her own people and join a person who would come. He would not be an Israelite. He asks the daughter to forget her people because she would be united with a person from another tribe.

If this prophecy refers Jesus, King David would not have told to leave her people .

17 I will make thy name to be remembered in all generations: therefore shall the people praise thee for ever and ever.

Even though Christians praise Jesus he is not praised all the time. He is praised only on Sundays or on other festivals. Five times a day Adhan is done and this is done nonstop in every part of the world. It is clear the prophet is praised non stop in different parts of the world.

In prayers and in sunnath prayers there are verses which praise the messenger of God. There is not a part in the world which doesnot conduct prayers regularly. Prophet Muhammad (saw) is praised continuously .For this reason he is remembered always.

King David's prophecies perfectly fit Prophet Muhammad (saw). Christians believe Bible as God's word and pay their respects to King David.

Should you not accept him? Man from another tribe -Attractive- Truthful- and a Victorious hero. Would you ignore king David's words?

Will you not listen to King David ? Wont you think?

WHO WAS BORN IN THE RACE OF KEDAR?

Old testament has a book named Isaiah. Christians believe this as the revelations given by God to Isaiah the prophet, who preceded Jesus. In 42 chapter of this book there are verses which prophesise the arrival of a prophet. These signs indicate it was revealed by God to Isaiah. If this signs match some body other than Isaiah then it is Prophet Muhammad ( saw) .

Christians who believe Bible as God s word must believe this prophecy of Isaiah.

This is the prophecy.

1 Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.

2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street.

3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.

4 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.

5 Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein:

6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;

7 To open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.

8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.

9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.

(ISAIAH 42:1-9)

Christians say this is a prophecy about Christ. But actually it is a prophecy about Prophet Muhammud (saw).

First verses say Behold my servant, whom I uphold .

Christians say Jesus as the son of God and not the servant of God !

What is the stand of prophet Muhammud (saw) ?

Hadith - Bukhari 4.654, Narrated Umar, r.a.

I heard the Prophet saying, Do not exaggerate in praising me as the Christians praised the son of Mary, for I am only a slave. So, call me the Slave of Allah and His Apostle.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) preferred to be called as the slave of Allah. Jesus did not say this .

 The first verse says he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles

Jesus was not sent to the Gentiles .

24 But he answered and said, I am not sent but unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel.

(MATTHEW 15:24)

Let us keep aside that he preached to gentiles. His message was not accepted by his own people. His own people betrayed him his own people crucified him.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) in his life time conveyed the message of God to his men and to other tribes.

Arabia embraced Islam and came under the leadership of Prophet Muhammad (saw) . this verses can only refer to prophet Muhammad (saw).

 He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth .

Only Prophet Muhammad achieved this in his life time.

The 7th verse says he brought the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house .

Jesus did not liberate any one. Prophet Muhammad (saw) abolished casteism from his tribe. He liberated his tribe .

Isaiah clearly says this is a prophesy regarding a future event.

13 The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.

14 I have long time holden my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing woman; I will destroy and

(ISAIAH 42:13,14).

Kedar and tribes surrounding it were unpunished by God then they were destroyed in the battle field. Was the prophecy fulfilled? When was it fulfilled ? Prophet Muhammad (saw) fulfilled this prophecies .He massacred those who angered God.

17 They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.

(ISAIAH 42:17)

Prophet Muhammad (saw) was born in the tribe of kedar .People worshipped idols as God. When Mecca was taken people bowed their heads in shame this is a recorded fact in history. This prophecy of Isaiah was fulfilled entirely.

22 But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore

(ISAIAH 42:22)

Isaiah calls Israelites his people. He mentions the condition of Israelites when this prophecy was fulfilled.

History says Jews were in a degraded state when prophet Muhammad (saw) arrived.

A TRIBE WHICH KNEW NOT GOD:

The book of Isaiah in old testament mentions another prophecy. this prophecy can only pinpoint to prophet Muhammad (saw) and his tribe.

before analyzing this prophecy we must know about prophet Muhammad (saw) , his tribe , and particulars of his tribe it is essential that we take this into consideration for it will be useful for understanding.

The tribe of prophet Muhammad (saw) and other tribes of Mecca did not know one God. They were barbaric, followers of idol worship, and sacrificed to idols.

After Ishmael no prophet rose from their tribe. It was said this prophet would be from their tribe. References are Isaiah 65:1 to 65:7.

1 I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not: I said, Behold me, behold me, unto a nation that was not called by my name.

2 I have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people, which walketh in a waythat was not good, after their own thoughts;

3 A people that provoketh me to anger continually to my face; that sacrificeth in gardens, and burneth incense upon altars of brick;

4 Which remain among the graves, and lodge in the monuments, which eat swine's flesh, and broth of abominable things is in their vessels;

5 Which say, Stand by thyself, come not near to me; for I am holier than thou. These are a smoke in my nose, a fire that burneth all the day.

6 Behold, it is written before me: I will not keep silence, but will recompense, even recompense into their bosom,

7 Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith the LORD, which have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom.

 Behold, it is written before me

This verse predicts an incident which would happen in future .Let us analyse the details .

A tribe which was not sound in the concept of God and a tribe for whom prophets arrival has stopped. The first verse God says Behold me Behold me .

From Isaiah to the time of Jesus many prophets were sent. They conveyed the message of God to Israelites.

People knew correctly who God was before Jesus birth and during his time. John who baptised Jesus , Zechariah the father of John who brought up Mary knew God well. People of that time gave importance to Discipline and culture. This is the reason they questioned Mary when she gave birth to a child out of wed lock. Some of them were following false ideas and their behavior bad while some were good people. Hence this prophecy is not about Jesus or the people of Jesus time.

No prophet rose from the tribe of prophet Muhammad. No good men were there at that time . There is no doubt that this prophecy is about Prophet Muhammad.

Even for the sake of argument if people of Jesus time did not understand God even then this cannot be attributed to the tribe of Jesus. Because this verse says I am sought of them that asked not for me; I am found of them that sought me not . A tribe which had no knowledge of God would search him and it is said they will understand him correctly.

The people of Jesus time did not search for true God even after the arrival of Jesus they did not find him. Contrarily (according to Christian beliefs) they were people who were exceedingly cruel crucifixion of Christ clearly shows that they did not know the true god . The tribe of prophet Muhammad (saw) was worshipping other gods and were in a deluded state but after prophet Muhammad (saw) attained prophethood there was a considerable change in the mentality of his people and they started to accept the concept of one God.

They sacrificed their body and soul for Allah( True God) . They suffered innumerable pains for him.

In the 7th verse Israel is referred as Your iniquities, and the iniquities of your fathers together, saith the LORD, which have burned incense upon the mountains, and blasphemed me upon the hills: therefore will I measure their former work into their bosom .

It is said due to the inquities which the tribe of Israel commited , another tribe is going to be rewarded with status and honour, this verses clearly says so.

This verse says those who act on their own wish those who worship the idols of stone and mud Those who consider themselves as superior and others as inferior such people will be selected by God verses 3,4,5 says this.

This verse also says due to the iniquities of Israelites another tribe has been selected by God for his purpose this verse is a proof that this prophecy is not about Jesus. Due to the atrocities commited by Israelites God selects another tribe for preaching his word and this clearly is mentioned in the 7 verse. There is no iota of doubt that this prophecy refers to Prophet Muhammad (saw) .

WHO IS THE PROPHET WHO RIDES ON A CAMEL ?

There is another prophecy in the book of Isaiah .

New testament says the previous verse was about Jesus . 10 points are mentioned but Jesus tallys with only one point. The only prophet who matches with this 10 signs is Prophet Muhmmad (saw).

Let us see this in detail.

RIDER ON A DONKEY !

15 Fear not, daughter of Sion: behold, thy King cometh, sitting on an ass's colt.

(John 12:15)

It is mentioned in previous scriptures that a prophet would come riding on a donkey. Jesus rode on a donkey so they say this prophecy is fulfilled.

A prophet riding a donkey is mentioned Only in one place in old testament. Christians have accepted the fact that John comments about him in new testament. This is the verse.

7 And he saw a chariot with a couple of horsemen, a chariot of asses, and a chariot of camels; and he hearkened diligently with much heed:

(ISAIAH 21:7)

It is understood from those verses that two men would travel in a donkey .Matthew thinks a man would ride two donkeys.

7 And brought the ass, and the colt, and put on them their clothes, and they set himthereon.

(MATTHEW 21:7)

The prophecy says about pair of Horse men, men riding donkeys and a pair of men riding camels. This prophecy doesnot pinpoint a single man. It is clear it speaks about a tribe.

If it is accepted for argument sake what we need to know is when Jesus rode two camels. What explanation, do they give for the pair of horseman ? This were not considered by new testament writers.

9 And, behold, here cometh a chariot of men, with a couple of horsemen. And he answered and said, Babylon is fallen, is fallen; and all the graven images of her gods he hath broken unto the ground.

(Isaiah 21:9)

21:7 verse says about people coming in pairs on donkeys, camels and horses verse 21:9 says about the leader of those people . After the arrival of that leader Babylon would fall. It is clearly mentioned that idol worship would be abolished. This incident happened on the arrival of prophet Muhammad (saw). The tribe of Muhammad(saw) used this 3 animals for transport.

13 The burden upon Arabia. In the forest in Arabia shall ye lodge, O ye travelling companies of Dedanim.

14 The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought water to him that was thirsty, they prevented with their bread him that fled.

15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.

16 For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Within a year, according to the years of an hireling, and all the glory of Kedar shall fail:

17 And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar, shall be diminished: for the LORD God of Israel hath spoken it.

(ISAIAH 21:13-17)

Prophet Isaiah says burden upon Arabia which means prophecy about Arabia. Isaiah calls Dedanim and Tema to help a tribe. For who does he claim help?

Fearing their enemies they are fleeing from their place help such people by staying in forests of Arabia! Give them water! Give them food for they are good men .Isaiah says they run to save themselves from cruel persecutors.

This prophecy was to be fulfilled in the land of Arabia. Who are the ones who are fleeing? Who is chasing them? This too is mentioned by prophet Isaiah.

Ishmael s descendants kedar are the persecutors those persecuted by them are the followers of prophet Muhammad (saw).

The pride of kedar would be humbled within a year. The glory of Kedar shall fail and many of them would be killed says Isaiah.

Remind yourselves of the Life of prophet Muhammad (saw) .

Prophet Muhammad (saw) was born in the tribe of Kedar . The tribe of Kedar persecuted Prophet Muhammad (saw) and his followers, not able to withstand them they fled to Madina and Abyssinia.

After establishing a government in Madina and within a year the trade relations of Kedar got affected. Muslims prevented them from having trade with Syria. In the first battle i.e the battle of Badr the descendants of Kedar were crushed.

The Arabs who thought themselves as invicible learnt their lesson.

Leaving all this valuable details and saying this prophecy was fulfilled by Jesus when he rode a donkey is unacceptable.

The prophecy that Babylon the capital of this day s Iran and Iraq would fall was fulfilled during the time of Prophet Muhammad (saw). It is noteable point that now it is being ruled by muslims starting from the time of prophet Muhammad (saw).

All prophecies mentioned in this verses perfectly match Prophet Muhammad (saw).

Isaiah says this are the words of God. This verses are prophecy from God and this prophecy is about Arabia. There is no doubt that this prophecy is about a revolution which would happen in Arabia.

WHO IS THE LIGHT OF THE MOUNTAIN OF PARAN ?

Old testament has a book named Deuteronomy. This book has a prophecy about prophet Muhammad (saw).

The book of Moses ( Deuteronomy 33:1-2) has this revelation. The prophet of God Moses before his death blessed Israel and said the following verses.

1 And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death.

2 And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand wenta fiery law for them.

(DEUTERONOMY 33:1,2)

This verses say about the places where God revealed his verses to the prophets.

 The LORD came from Sinai this indicates the mountain of Sinai. Verses were revealed by God to Prophet Moses in this mountain. Hence it is stated The LORD came from Sinai We are able to understand its meaning.

What is the meaning of rose up from Seir unto them ? The revelation given to Moses says rose up from Seir unto them ? This can only mean a prophet from seir was given the word of God.

What is the meaning of shined forth from mount Paran ?

To know this we must know where the mountain of paran is located.

It is well known fact among the Muslims, Christians and Jews that Prophet Muhammad (saw) was born in the race of Ishmael. It is a well known truth that Ismail (Ishmael) was brought up in the land of Mecca. Zam zam water was created by Allah to quench the thirst of Ismail when he was a baby this is the belief of Muslims and we still see the spring today.

Bible says about Ishmael brought up and life.

God said to Abraham don t worry about your slave and her son hearken to what sarah says your descendants through Isaac would be blessed. I will bless also the son of slave woman. He too will be your descendant.

And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gaveit unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beer-sheba.

 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs.

him, and lift up her voice, and wept. And she went, and sat her down over againsthim a good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept.

12 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.

13 And also of the son of the bondwoman will I make a nation, because he is thy seed.

14 And Abraham rose up early in the morning, and took bread, and a bottle of water, and gave it unto Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, and the child, and sent her away: and she departed, and wandered in the wilderness of Beer-sheba.

15 And the water was spent in the bottle, and she cast the child under one of the shrubs.

16 And she went, and sat her down over against him a good way off, as it were a bowshot: for she said, Let me not see the death of the child. And she sat over against him, and lift up her voice, and wept.

17 And God heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called to Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath heard the voice of the lad where he is.

18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation.

19 And God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.

20 And God was with the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer.

21 And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of Egypt.

(GENESIS 21:12-21).

Bible says Ishmael resided in the forest of paran. Islam says it was Mecca. Islam s Mecca and Bible s paran are same place. Prophet Muhammad (saw) was the descendant of Ishmael.

The only person from the time of Moses to present time to whom revelations were given from God is Prophet Muhammad (saw).

Moses was given scripture by God and he was the light of Sinai.

If the revelation given to Jesus was the light of Zion.

Who was the Light of Paran?

No one excluding prophet Muhammad (saw) called himself as a prophet from this area. From the time of Moses till the time of prophet Muhammad (saw) the people of paran were ignorant . There is no doubt that the light of Paran (Hira) refers Prophet Muhammad (saw).

THE STONE WHICH CRUSHES KINGDOMS:

In old testament of Bible there is a book called Daniel. In that book there is a prophecy it speaks about prophet Muhammad (saw) and the Islamic uprising.

There was a king named Nebuchadnezzar he had a dream .He could not interpret it .He called Magicians, sooth sayers, and witches to interpret his dream.

He wanted them to interpret the meaning of his dream.

No one was able to interpret the king s dream. So he ordered to kill the Magicians, sooth sayers and witches.

This was the time of Prophet Daniel. He told he could interpret the king s dream and all he needed was time.

These details are mentioned in the book of Daniel chapter 2 verses 1 to 15.

 (Daniel 2:1-15).

24 Therefore Daniel went in unto Arioch, whom the king had ordained to destroy the wise men of Babylon: he went and said thus unto him; Destroy not the wise men of Babylon: bring me in before the king, and I will shew unto the king the interpretation.

25 Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste, and said thus unto him, I have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make known unto the king the interpretation.

26 The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?

27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;

28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;

29 As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.

30 But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.

31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.

32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,

33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

DANIEL 2: 24-35

16 Then Daniel went in, and desired of the king that he would give him time, and that he would shew the king the interpretation.

17 Then Daniel went to his house, and made the thing known to Hananiah, Mishael, and Azariah, his companions:

18 That they would desire mercies of the God of heaven concerning this secret; that Daniel and his fellows should not perish with the rest of the wise men of Babylon.

19 Then was the secret revealed unto Daniel in a night vision. Then Daniel blessed the God of heaven.

20 Daniel answered and said, Blessed be the name of God for ever and ever: for wisdom and might are his:

21 And he changeth the times and the seasons: he removeth kings, and setteth up kings: he giveth wisdom unto the wise, and knowledge to them that know understanding:

22 He revealeth the deep and secret things: he knoweth what is in the darkness, and the light dwelleth with him.

23 I thank thee, and praise thee, O thou God of my fathers, who hast given me wisdom and might, and hast made known unto me now what we desired of thee: for thou hast now made known unto us the king's matter.

24 Therefore Daniel went in unto Arioch, whom the king had ordained to destroy the wise men of Babylon: he went and said thus unto him; Destroy not the wise men of Babylon: bring me in before the king, and I will shew unto the king the interpretation.

25 Then Arioch brought in Daniel before the king in haste, and said thus unto him, I have found a man of the captives of Judah, that will make known unto the king the interpretation.

26 The king answered and said to Daniel, whose name was Belteshazzar, Art thou able to make known unto me the dream which I have seen, and the interpretation thereof?

27 Daniel answered in the presence of the king, and said, The secret which the king hath demanded cannot the wise men, the astrologers, the magicians, the soothsayers, shew unto the king;

28 But there is a God in heaven that revealeth secrets, and maketh known to the king Nebuchadnezzar what shall be in the latter days. Thy dream, and the visions of thy head upon thy bed, are these;

29 As for thee, O king, thy thoughts came into thy mind upon thy bed, what should come to pass hereafter: and he that revealeth secrets maketh known to thee what shall come to pass.

30 But as for me, this secret is not revealed to me for any wisdom that I have more than any living, but for their sakes that shall make known the interpretation to the king, and that thou mightest know the thoughts of thy heart.

31 Thou, O king, sawest, and behold a great image. This great image, whose brightness was excellent, stood before thee; and the form thereof was terrible.

32 This image's head was of fine gold, his breast and his arms of silver, his belly and his thighs of brass,

33 His legs of iron, his feet part of iron and part of clay.

34 Thou sawest till that a stone was cut out without hands, which smote the image upon his feet that were of iron and clay, and brake them to pieces.

35 Then was the iron, the clay, the brass, the silver, and the gold, broken to pieces together, and became like the chaff of the summer threshingfloors; and the wind carried them away, that no place was found for them: and the stone that smote the image became a great mountain, and filled the whole earth.

36 This is the dream; and we will tell the interpretation thereof before the king.

37 Thou, O king, art a king of kings: for the God of heaven hath given thee a kingdom, power, and strength, and glory.

38 And wheresoever the children of men dwell, the beasts of the field and the fowls of the heaven hath he given into thine hand, and hath made thee ruler over them all. Thou art this head of gold.

39 And after thee shall arise another kingdom inferior to thee, and another third kingdom of brass, which shall bear rule over all the earth.

40 And the fourth kingdom shall be strong as iron: forasmuch as iron breaketh in pieces and subdueth all things: and as iron that breaketh all these, shall it break in pieces and bruise.

41 And whereas thou sawest the feet and toes, part of potters' clay, and part of iron, the kingdom shall be divided; but there shall be in it of the strength of the iron, forasmuch as thou sawest the iron mixed with miry clay.

42 And as the toes of the feet were part of iron, and part of clay, so the kingdom shall be partly strong, and partly broken.

43 And whereas thou sawest iron mixed with miry clay, they shall mingle themselves with the seed of men: but they shall not cleave one to another, even as iron is not mixed with clay.

44 And in the days of these kings shall the God of heaven set up a kingdom, which shall never be destroyed: and the kingdom shall not be left to other people, but it shall break in pieces and consume all these kingdoms, and it shall stand for ever.

45 Forasmuch as thou sawest that the stone was cut out of the mountain without hands, and that it brake in pieces the iron, the brass, the clay, the silver, and the gold; the great God hath made known to the king what shall come to pass hereafter: and the dream iscertain, and the interpretation thereof sure.

(DANIEL 2:16-45)

Before seeing who is foretold in Nebuchadnezzar dream we must know where he reigned .

He reigned Iraq and Iran with Babylon as his capital. His dream was about Iraq and Iran. That kingdom was ruled by Nebuchadnezzar after him his son Belteshazzar. 536 B.C it was ruled by kiyoniyar then it was Alexander.

But no kingdom lasted long. Only one kingdom will last till the end of the world. It will break other kingdoms. It is said God will establish a kingdom , this is a verse which need to be given due consideration.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) kingdom was not of this world. It was the kingdom of God. The land would be ruled by God s laws.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) annexed the kingdoms of Iraq and Iran and it is been more than 1000 years still the Islamic rule is very much alive.

Hence it is clear the kingdom is the kingdom of God and Muhammad (saw) was the messenger of God.

PROPHECIES OF NEW TESTAMENT:

WHO IS THE PROPHET?

The prophecy regarding prophet Muhammad (saw) is mentioned both in old and new testament.

It is mentioned in the Gospel of Matthew and John. Let us see this prophecy in detail.

During the time of Jesus the jews awaited for the arrival of 3 men ( Elijah, Messiah and the prophet). It is mentioned in the following verses.

19 And this is the record of John, when the Jews sent priests and Levites from Jerusalem to ask him, Who art thou?

20 And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed, I am not the Christ.

21 And they asked him, What then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I am not. Art thou that prophet? And he answered, No.

(John 1:19-21).

John lived during the time of Jesus. He baptized Jesus he told people to repent for their sins jews questioned him Are you the Messiah ? or Elijah ? Or are you the prophet to come? . The jews of that time awaited the arrival of 3 persons they have not come till now . They were eagerly waiting for their appearance. For this reason when John preached they asked him are you the Messiah? Or are you Elijah or are you the prophet to come ? keep this verses in mind and read the following verses.

11 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things.

12 But I say unto you, That Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them.

13 Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist.

(Matthew 17:11-13)

It is said in the book of Jews that Elijah must come before Messiah .

Jesus said Iam the Messiah . The jews replied if you are the messiah where is Elijah who ought to come before you ? Jesus said Elijah has appeared and people knew him not for John was Elijah.

People might think why John rejected the claim that he was Elijah. It was because he feared the persecution of his people.

Jews waited for Elijah, he came and it was John.

They expected Messiah to come after him and it was Jesus.

Who was the prophet to come? Who is he ? From the time of John to till date the prophet who came after Messiah is Prophet Muhammad (saw). By rejecting prophet Muhammad (saw) they are rejecting the prophecy of their Bible.

Based on this belief Jews from Jerusalem reached Madina. They waited for the prophet s arrival. There was no other reason why they should arrive Madina.

Christian friends ! Will you not think about this prophecy?

WHO WARNS AND CORRECTS PEOPLE ?

Jesus before he departed from earthly realm gave many teachings to his disciples. He prophesised events that would happen after his departure. One of events he mentions is the appearance of prophet Muhammad (saw) .

The prophecy is in the book of John chapter 16: 5 to 15.

5 But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?

6 But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.

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.

8 And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:

9 Of sin, because they believe not on me;

10 Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;

11 Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.

12 I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.

13 Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into 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.

14 He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

15 All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you.

(JOHN 16: 5-15)

Jesus clearly says he is not the last prophet. He says it is good if he departs this can only be said if a better prophet replaces him.

The prophet who comes will not be like me . He wont preach bearance. I said if some one hits you on one cheek turn him the other but he would be stern and correct his people.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) took stern measures in implementing God s law. Robbery, Prostitution, Murder crimes were dealt severely by Prophet Muhammad (saw).

He says He will lead you into all truth  . .

He wont stop with prayer and worship. He will teach you every aspect from life to death . From wakefulness to sleep he will deal with different aspect s of life. The only person who suits Jesus description is Prophet Muhammad (saw) .

Jesus said he will quote from his teachings which is proved in the Quran. The Quran has verses related to Jesus .In the sunnah of prophet (saw) we see verses related to Jesus .

Prophet Muhammad (saw) conformed the teachings of Jesus which in turn is a acceptance of his prophet hood.

Prophet Muhammad (saw) conformed the prophethood of Jesus by recalling the events which happened in the life of Jesus.

Born without male intervention

He spoke when as a child

Did miracles

Was untaunted by satan.

Word by word this prophecy fits prophet Muhammad (saw).

THE STONE WHICH BECOME

THE HEAD OF THE CORNER :

There is a book named Matthew in New testament. It has a prophecy of Jesus .

It has been the practice of christian scholars to quote prophecies from old testament and relate it to Jesus.

They cannot reject this prophecy of Jesus.

33 Hear another parable: There was a certain householder, which planted a vineyard, and hedged it round about, and digged a winepress in it, and built a tower, and let it out to husbandmen, and went into a far country:

34 And when the time of the fruit drew near, he sent his servants to the husbandmen, that they might receive the fruits of it.

35 And the husbandmen took his servants, and beat one, and killed another, and stoned another.

36 Again, he sent other servants more than the first: and they did unto them likewise.

37 But last of all he sent unto them his son, saying, They will reverence my son.

38 But when the husbandmen saw the son, they said among themselves, This is the heir; come, let us kill him, and let us seize on his inheritance.

39 And they caught him, and cast him out of the vineyard, and slew him.

40 When the lord therefore of the vineyard cometh, what will he do unto those husbandmen?

41 They say unto him, He will miserably destroy those wicked men, and will let out hisvineyard unto other husbandmen, which shall render him the fruits in their seasons.

42 Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvellous in our eyes?

43 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

44 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

(MATTHEW 21:33 TO 44).

This is a prophecy foretold by Jesus about prophet Muhammad (saw) .

What does this parable say? The world is compared to a garden of grapes the owner of this garden is God.

Men are compared to people who have taken lease a garden of grapes .Men must not take this world as their abode .You can live in this world by a way prescribed by God.

Jesus did not say he was the last prophet . The stone which the builders rejected i.e the tribe which was rejected and did not bring any prophet i.e the tribe of Ishmael .This tribe was considered useless and it involved in mineal crimes .It is said the tribe of Prophet Muhammad (saw) would become the foundation stone for the doctrine of God.

A tribe with no prophet , gave rise to a prophet who was named as tried stone byJesus.

It is said the kingdom of God would be taken from the Jews and given to people who will bring more fruits.

And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.

This verse is worthy to be noted. It is also clear that he will not be like other prophets . He cannot be murdered like other prophets he will fight against them and prevail against them. Who ever fights him will be defeated this verse says about the military progress of Prophet Muhammad (saw).

As prophesised by Jesus Prophet Muhammad (saw) was a strong Man . He created a community which worshipped the only true God (Allah).

Christian friends ! If you really respect Jesus will you not accept the prophecies he made about Prophet Muhammad (saw) the Christian church has removed many verses but the remaining verses are sufficient to prove the prophethood of Muhammad (saw).

Another matter which should be duly considered is as follows.

 The stone which the builders refused is become the head stone of the corner .

PSALMS 118:22

Citing Psalms 118:22 from old testament Christian scholars say it is a prophecy about Jesus .

Jesus was not the head stone of corner he was born miraculously he spoke about God in his childhood so it is impossible that it was Jesus.

As Jesus referred this verse to mention the arrival of prophet after his time it could only mean Prophet Muhammad (saw).

Christian friends ! These verses are not fantasy they are taken from the Bible which you revere as the word of God. If you believe Bible as the word of God then you must believe these verses. Many prophets have said about the prophet to come . There are clear signs in it.

Remove your prejudice against Prophet Muhammad (saw) and read these verses from your Bible and read the life history of prophet Muhammad (saw).

You cannot escape from concluding that prophet Muhammad (saw) was the mightiest Messenger of God.

Let God give you the wisdom to know truth .
