Indeed it is because of the teachings of Muhammad that billions of Muslims, since his time and until today, have revered the persons of Jesus, Moses and Abraham peace be upon them all. In this article, you will discover how the Bible foretells the coming of an Arabian prophet, specifically Prophet Muhammad.
Nevertheless, the Muslim search for prophecies supporting Islam has been sloppy; as a result, defenders of Islam have failed to provide a single well-evidenced example of a Biblical prediction about their prophet.
It is they who will prosper. Ata Ibn Yasar narrated: I emerged and said: For by God you know that he is the apostle of God.
You will find him described in your Torah and even named. It is extracted from what John the Apostle set down for them when he wrote the Gospel for them from the Testament of Jesus Son of Mary: And if I had not done in their presence works which none other before me did, they had not had sin: I have spoken unto you about this that ye should not be in doubt.
Then he looked down on them from an upper chamber for he was afraid of them and said: Muhammad] has written me a letter summoning me to his religion. By God, he is truly the prophet whom we expect and find in our books, so come and let us follow him and believe in him that it may be well with us in this world and the next.
While hundreds of verses have been suggested as candidates, only a handful are now being seriously put forward as Biblical references to Muhammad.
Of this handful, two are most common: In this verse is a prefiguring, to Moses, of the Arabian Messenger, the last and greatest of the Messengers of Allah. Prophecies about him will be found in the Tawrah and the Injil [Gospel].
In the reflex of the Tawrah as now accepted by the Jews, Moses says: In the reflex of the Gospel as now accepted by Christians, Christ promised another Comforter, John Together, these two predictions form the "one-two punch" of the Argument from Biblical Prophecy. Yet Muslims have to tear both prophecies out of context in order to make them conform to the Islamic interpretation.
This is why Islamic books and pamphlets rarely quote entire passages; to do so would expose the context and would refute the argument. A careful analysis reveals the truth about these texts.
The first of the Major Prophecies comes from Deuteronomy, where Moses predicts the rise of another prophet: 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; according to all that thou desiredst of the LORD thy God in Horeb in the day of the assembly, saying, Let me not hear again the voice of the LORD my God, neither let me see this great fire any more, that I die not.
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.
And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him. These facts, along with other similarities between Muhammad and Moses, support the identification of "the Prophet" with Muhammad. If we were to take Deuteronomy However, even a cursory examination of the context of this prophecy demonstrates the flaws in the Islamic position.
The ultimate fulfillment of this passage would be someone who stands as a permanent mediator between God and man.- Muhammad the Just Prophet Islam began in Arabia during the seventh century common era.
Islam is the youngest of all monotheistic religions of the western world and despite its later development after Judaism and Christianity, there are nearly one billion believers in existence today.
One widespread belief within Islam is that one ought to be like the prophet, and in some interpretations this includes that men ought to try to look like the prophet. Thus, portraits of Muhammad is an entire genre of Islamic literature and art.
Many Christians and Jews have accepted Islam (Islam literally means ‘submission to God’) by recognising Muhammad (pbuh) from the Bible. One of those is the late Reverend David Benjamin Keldani, the author of ‘Muhammad in the Bible’ .
The prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, was prophesied in your very own Bible. This proves Islam is the fulfillment of all other religions.
Judaism came, then Christianity, then it was completed by Islam.”. Muhammad in the Bible?
An Analysis of the Muslim Appeal to Biblical Prophecy. If Muhammad was a true prophet, the Bible must contain numerous clear prophecies about him The Prophet of Islam received revelations saying that it was okay for his followers to pray to gods besides Allah.
Later. One widespread belief within Islam is that one ought to be like the prophet, and in some interpretations this includes that men ought to try to look like the prophet. Thus, portraits of Muhammad is an entire genre of Islamic literature and art.
