    About Prophecy


    I got the following information from a friend. He is young Syrian. The informtion is helpful to me so I share.

    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
    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
    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]
    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
    3. 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 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
    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
    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
    What can you do to compare to the Rain?
