Biblical Prophecies about Muhammad(S.A.W.W)

"Those who follow the Apostle, the unlettered Prophet, Whom they find mentioned in their own Scriptures, in the Torah and the Gospel..."
(Holy Qu'ran: VII - 157; Translation: Yusif Ali)

  • Genesis 21:13,18 – ALLAH promises to make Ishmael a great nation. Ishmael is the half brother of Isaac, the father of the Jews. Ishmael is the great grandfather of Muhammad(S.A.W.W), and, according to tradition, is the ancestor of Arab people.

    • Deuteronomy 18:18 and 33:1,2 – ALLAH promises to raise a prophet who would be among the brethren of the Jews and like unto Moses. Muslim scholars interpret "brethren" as a reference to Ishmaelites, the ancestors of   Muhammad(S.A.W.W). Muslims believe that Muhammad(S.A.W.W)  resembled Moses as a married father; warrior; law-giver; who was forced to immigrate; and raised by non-parents.
    The Prophet Like Unto Moses 
    Long time after Abraham, ALLAH's promise to send the long-awaited Messenger was repeated this time in MOSES words. 
    In Deuteronomy 18:18, Moses spoke of the prophet to be sent by ALLAH who is: 
    1.  From among the Israelite's "brethren", a reference to their Ishmaelite cousins as Ishmael was the other son of Abraham who was explicitly promised to become a "great nation".
    2.  A prophet like unto Moses. There were hardly any two prophets ,who were so much alike as Moses and Muhammad(S.A.W.W). Both were given comprehensive law code of life, both encountered their enemies and were victors in miraculous ways, both were accepted as prophets/statesmen and both migrated following conspiracies to assassinate them. Analogies between Moses and Jesus overlooks not only the above similarities but other crucial ones as well (e.g. the natural birth, family life and death of Moses and Muhammad(S.A.W.W) but not of Jesus, who was regarded by His followers as the Son of ALLAH and not exclusively a messenger of ALLAH, as Moses and Muhammad(S.A.W.W) were and as Muslim belief Jesus was).

      • Habakkuk 3:3 – Muhammad(S.A.W.W)'s migration from Mecca to Medina. Since according to Genesis 21:21 the wilderness of Paran was the place where Ishmael settled (i.e. Arabia, specifically Mecca).
      Habakkuk 3:3 speaks of ALLAH (ALLAH's help) coming from Te'man (an Oasis North of Medina according to J. Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible), and the holy one (coming) from Paran. That holy one who under persecution migrated from Paran (Mecca) to be received enthusiastically in Medina was none but prophet Muhammad(S.A.W.W). 
      Indeed the incident of the migration of the prophet and his persecuted followers is vividly described in Isaiah 21:13-17. That section foretold as well about the battle of Badr in which the few ill-armed faithful miraculously defeated the "mighty" men of Ke'dar, who sought to destroy Islam and intimidate their own folks who turned -to Islam.

        • Isaiah 21:13–17 – Arabia is the land of the promised one.
        Deuteronomy 33:1-2 combines references to Moses, Jesus and Muhammad(S.A.W.W). It speaks of ALLAH (i.e. ALLAH's revelation) coming from Sinai, rising from Seir (probably the village of Sa'ir near Jerusalem) and shining forth from Paran. According to Genesis 21:21, the wilderness of Paran was the place where Ishmael settled (i.e. Arabia, specifically Mecca). 
        Indeed the King James version of the Bible mentions the pilgrims passing through the valley of Ba'ca (another name of Mecca) in Psalms 84:4-6.Isaiah 42:1-13 speaks of the beloved of ALLAH. His elect and messenger who will bring down a law to be awaited in the isles and who "shall not fail nor be discouraged till he have set judgement on earth." Verse 11, connects that awaited one with the descendants of Ke'dar. Who is Ke'dar? According to Genesis 25:13, Ke'dar was the second son of Ishmael, the ancestor of prophet Muhammad(S.A.W.W).

          • Isaiah 29:12 conforms the way Muhammad(S.A.W.W) first received his revelation from the angel Gabriel.

          • John 1:19–25 has John the Baptist being asked if he was "the Prophet" after refuting he was the Messiah or Elijah. Islamic preacher Ahmed Deedat said this was a prophecy of Muhammad(S.A.W.W).

          • John 14:16, 15:26, 16:7 and John 18:36– These verses describe a Paraclete or comforter. John 14:26, identifies it as the Holy Ghost, while Muslim scholars doubt the underlying meaning of the term.

          • John 16:12–14 – Comforter was to bring complete teachings. Christians actually believe this prophecy was the outpouring of the holy spirit on the day of Pentecost.

          • Matthew 21:42–44 – The rejected stone according to Islamic understanding of these passages is the nation of Ishmael's descendants which was victorious against all super-powers of its time. "The kingdom of ALLAH shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof. And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder."

          • Acts 3:20–22 - Muhammad(S.A.W.W) to come before the second advent of Jesus
          For twenty-three years, ALLAH's words (the Quran) were truely put into Muhammad(S.A.W.W)'s mouth. He was not the "author" of the Quran. The Quran was dictated to him by Angel Gabriel who asked Muhammad(S.A.W.W) to simply repeat the words of the Quran as he heard them. These words were then committed to memory and to writing by those who hear them during Muhammad(S.A.W.W)'s life time and under his supervision.

          Was it a coincidence that the prophet "like unto Moses" from the "brethren" of the Israelites (i.e. from the lshmaelites) was also described as one in whose mouth ALLAH will put his words and that he will speak in the name of ALLAH, (Deuteronomy 18:18-20). Was it also a coincidence the "Paraclete" that Jesus foretold to come after Him was described as one who "shall not speak of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak (John 16:13)Was it another coincidence that Isaiah ties between the messenger connected with Ke'dar and a new song (a scripture in a new language) to be sang unto the Lord (Isaiah 42:10-11). More explicitly, "For with stammering lips, and another tongue, will he speak to this people" (Isaiah 28:11). This latter verse correctly describes the "stammering lips" of Prophet Muhammad(S.A.W.W) reflecting the state of tension and concentration he went through at the time of revelation. Another related point is that the Quran was revealed in piece-meals over a span of twenty three years. It is interesting to compare this with Isaiah 28:10 which speaks of the same thing.

          Up to the time of Jesus, the Israelites were still awaiting for that prophet like unto Moses prophecied in Deuteronomy 18:18. When John the Baptist came, they asked him if he was Christ and he said "no". They asked him if he was Elias and he said "no". Then, in apparent reference to Deuteronomy 18:18, they asked him "Art thou that Prophet" and he answered, "no". (John 1: 1 9-2 1).In the Gospel according to John (Chapters 14, 15, 16) Jesus spoke of the "Paraclete" or comforter who will come after him, who will be sent by Father as another Paraclete, who will teach new things which the contemporaries of Jesus could not bear. While the Paraclete is described as the spirit of truth, (whose meaning resemble Muhammad(S.A.W.W)'s famous title Al-Amin, the trustworthy), he is identified in one verse as the Holy Ghost (John 14:26). Such a designation is however inconsistent with the profile of that Paraclete. In the words of the Dictionary of the Bible, (Ed. J. Mackenzie) "These items, it must be admitted do not give an entirely coherent picture."
          Indeed history tells us that many early Christians understood the Paraclete to be a man and not a spirit. This might explain the followings who responded to some who claimed, without meeting the criteria stipulated by Jesus, to be the awaited "Paraciete".
          It was Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.W) who was the Paraclete, Comforter, helper, admonisher sent by
          ALLAH after Jesus. He testified of Jesus, taught new things which could not be borne at Jesus time, he spoke what he heard (revelation), he dwells with the believers (through his well-preserved teachings). Such teachings will remain forever because he was the last messenger of ALLAH, the only Universal Messenger to unite the whole of humanity under ALLAH and on the path of PRESERVED truth. He told of many things to come which "came to pass" in the minutest detail meeting, the criterion given by Moses to distinguish between the true prophet and the false prophets (Deuteronomy 18:22). He did reprove the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgement (John 16:8-11)
