Bible Verses about the Prophet Muhammad

"Those who follow the Apostle, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own Scriptures, in the Torah and the Gospel ... "
[Al-Qur'an 7:157]

Islam and the Prophet's Connection to the Bible

Question: Does Islam and its Prophet and Messenger Muhammad (peace and blessing of God be upon him) have any historical links with the Bible (Gospel and the Old Testament)?

(All quotations are from the New King James Version.)

Yes, indeed there are many links. We quote as follows:

  • In the Old Testament, Genesis, 21:21 it is said: "He (Prophet Ishmael) dwelt in the Wilderness of Paran; and his Mother took a wife for him from the land of Egypt."
  • Psalm 83: 4-6 talks about the enemies of among others Ishmaelites, and Hagrites (Hagar being the mother of Prophet Ishmael).
  • Psalm 84: 4-6 "4. Blessed are those who dwell in your House; They will still be praising You. 5. Blessed is the man whose strength is in You, whose heart is set on the pilgrimage. 6. As they pass through the valley of Baca. They make it a spring; The rain also covers it with pools."

There are several interesting points in the above verses. The name Baca could be Hebrew whereas the word Makkah is Arabic. Added to this the fact that there is a designated House of God built by Abraham, peace be upon him, in Makkah where yearly pilgrimage was performed from the time of Abraham and Ishmael, peace be upon them both, even to this day. The valley of Baca could indeed be the same as the valley of Makkah. The above verses seem to place Hagar, Ishmael and their children in the valley of Makkah where Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessing of God be upon him, was born.

  • Isaiah, 21:12-17 mentions "12 ... In the forest in Arabia you will lodge ... 15 For they fled from the swords , from the drawn sword, from the bent bow, and from the distress of war." (Probable connection with the enemies mentioned in Psalm 83: 4-6 quoted above; also settlement in Arabia is confirmed; the verse 16 which follows, also confirms these verses are about Ishmaelites, Kedar being the 2nd son of Prophet Ishmael).
  • "16. For thus the Lord ... all the glory of Kedar will fall. 17. And the remainder ... people of Kedar will be diminished ... "
  • Isaiah 42:1-13 - These are very moving verses about "God's elect servant" who will bring forth justice to the Gentiles. A point worth noting is that Gentiles are the non-Jews and it was confirmed by Jesus, peace be upon him, that he was sent to the Jews. Moreover Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him, is consistently named by God as Mustafa which means 'elected' and 'Abd' which means 'servant'. Prophet Muhammad always referred to himself consistently as the 'Servant of God'. The above verses cannot be about Jesus, peace be upon him, as many Christians believe, for at least two reasons. Firstly, the Christians and the Catholics describe him as the son of God and not the servant of God; whereas Prophet Muhammad is known exclusively as the Servant and the Messenger of God. Secondly, Jesus was sent exclusively to the Jews whereas Prophet Muhammad was sent among the Gentiles.

References in the Bible about the Coming of the Prophet Muhammad

Question: Are there any references and citations from the Bible about the Coming of the Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him)?

Yes. There are several citations in the Bible prophesying the coming of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessing of God be upon him. Isaiah 42:4 says, "He will not fail nor be discouraged, till he has established justice in the earth." The Ministry of Jesus, peace be upon him, lasted only three years and at the time of his departure from this world it could not be truthfully said that 'he established justice in the earth'. However, Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him, preached for 23 years and most certainly 'established justice in the earth' before he departed from the earth. It is therefore reasonable to conclude that verses 1-13 refer to the coming of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him.

Deuteronomy 18:18 "I will raise for them a Prophet like you (Moses) from among their brethren and will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them, all that I command him."

Let me make some comments about the above: Christians believe that this is a reference to Jesus, peace be upon him. One important word here is "Prophet". Christians believe Jesus is the son of God not a prophet of God. Another important word is "brethren". If it were Jesus the word would have been "children" because Jesus, peace be upon him, came from the children of Isaac. Since Ishmael, peace be upon him, was the brother of Isaac, peace be upon him, the reference is therefore to the children of Prophet Ishmael, peace be upon him, who will be brethren to the children of Isaac, peace be upon him. Again the only Prophet from the brethren of the Jews and the Christians was Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him. The next important phrase is " ... like you (Moses)". Even a cursory comparison will show us that Jesus, peace be upon him, was very unlike Prophet Moses, peace be upon him. Prophet Moses' birth was natural whereas the birth of Jesus was miraculous without a father, to a virgin, peace be upon her. Prophet Moses married and had children, Jesus did not marry and of course did not have any children. The ministry of Jesus, peace be upon him, lasted three years and did not see the laws of God establish in his time. Prophet Moses, peace be upon him, preached the law of God for many decades and saw in his time, the law of God established. Comparing Prophet Moses, peace be upon him, with Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him, brings out an amazing similarity. Muhammad's birth was natural, he was married and had children; preached the law of God for 23 years and saw in his own time God's Law established in his land.

The phrase: "I will put My words in his mouth", takes on great significance because Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him, was unlettered; he did not know how to read or write. Normally God would put the message in the Prophet's mind. In this case attention is drawn towards "words" being put into the "mouth". Prophet Muhammad's sayings as well as eye witness accounts describe his receiving the verses of the Holy Qur'an, and his tongue moving with the words being put in his mouth.

Turning to the New Testament, let us look at John 14:15-16. It says: "15. If you love Me, keep My commandments. 16. And I will pray the Father, and He will give you another 'comforter' (helper in other versions), that he may abide with you forever." Also John 15:26-27, John 16:5-8 and John 16:12-14.

Jesus, peace be upon him, spoke the Gospel in his native language which is Aramaic. The earliest translations were in Greek. It is very very interesting that the Greek word which was eventually translated into English as "Comforter" (Helper) is "Parqaleeta" and the meaning of this word is "one whom people praise exceedingly". It does not mean "the Holy Ghost" which is what we are told the so called "Comforter" means. I do not have the slightest clue as to how this meaning was given to the word Parqaleeta. What is even more fascinating is the fact that the name Muhammad has exactly the same meaning as Parqaleeta "one whom people praise exceedingly"! One of my friends wrote very beautifully in his book about the meaning of the word Muhammad: "The most praised one. He is praised upon earth and in the heavens, from the beginning to the end, by men jinn and angels, rocks and trees and animals, by prophets before him since Adam, by saints until Doomsday. As all of this cannot give him due praise, we beg God to praise him. He is the only One who truly knows the value and the mystery of His Muhammad and He is the only One who can truly praise him." The celestial name of Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon him, is Ahmad. I will quote from the Holy Qur'an about the connection of Prophet Muhammad with the Bible as follows:

"And remember Moses said to his people: 'O my people! why do ye vex and insult me though ye know that I am the apostle of Allah (sent) to you?' Then when they went wrong Allah let their hearts go wrong: for Allah guides not those who are rebellious transgressors.

"And remember Jesus the son of Mary said: 'O Children of Israel! I am the Prophet of Allah (sent) to you confirming the Law (which came) before me and giving glad Tidings of a Prophet to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad.' But when he came to them with Clear Signs they said 'This is evident sorcery!' "

[Al-Qur'an 61:5-6]

Allah is one of the 100 names of the One and only God. Allah is the name of His Essence while the other 99 are the names of His Attributes.

As for "abide with you forever" since Prophet Muhammad is the final Prophet and the Holy Qur'an the final Testament and Revelation from God, his teachings which are more or less the same as of all the other Prophets and Messengers of God, Divine teachings of God, he will abide in his teachings forever.

Bible Prophecies about the Advent of Muhammad

Abraham is widely regarded as the Patriarch of monotheism and the common father of the Jews, Christians and Muslims. Through his second son, Isaac, came all Israelite prophets including such towering figures as Jacob, Joseph, Moses, David, Solomon, and Jesus. May peace and blessings be upon them all. The advent of these great prophets was in partial fulfillment promise to bless the nations of earth through descendants of Abraham (Genesis 12:2-3). Such fulfillment is wholeheartedly accepted by Muslims whose faith considers the belief in and respect of all prophets an article of faith.

Blessings of Ishmael and Isaac

Was the first born son of Abraham (Ishmael) and his descendants included in God's covenant and promise? A few verses from the Bible may help light on this question:

  1. Genesis 12:2-3 speaks of God's promise to Abraham and his descendants before any child was born to him.
  2. Genesis 17:4 reiterates God's promise after the birth of Ishmael and before the birth of Isaac.
  3. In Genesis, Ch. 21, Isaac is specifically blessed but Ishmael was also specifically blessed and promised by God to become a "great nation" in Genesis 21:13,18.
  4. According to Deuteronomy 21:15-17 the traditional rights and privileges of the first born son are not to be affected by the social status of the mother (being a "free" woman such as Sarah, Isaac's mother, or a "Bondwoman" such as Hagar, Ishmael's mother). This is only consistent with the moral and humanitarian principles of all revealed faiths.
  5. The full legitimacy of Ishmael as Abraham's son and "seed" and the full legitimacy of his mother, Hagar, as Abraham's wife are clearly stated in Genesis 21:13 and 16:3. After Jesus, the last Israelite prophet, it was time that God's promise to bless Ishmael and his descendants be fulfilled. Less than 600 years after Jesus, came the last messenger of God, Muhammad, from the progeny of Abraham through Ishmael. God's blessing of both of the main branches of family tree was now fulfilled. But is there additional corroborating evidence that the Bible did in fact foretell the advent of prophet Muhammad?

Muhammad: The Prophet Like Unto Moses

Long time after Abraham, God'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 God 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. 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 but not of Jesus, who was regarded by his followers as the Son of God and not exclusively a messenger of God, as Moses and Muhammad were and as the Muslims belief Jesus was).

The Awaited Prophet was to Come from Arabia

Deuteronomy 33:1-2 combines references to Moses, Jesus and Muhammad. It speaks of God (i.e. God'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 Makkah). Indeed the King James Version of the Bible mentions the pilgrims passing through the valley of Ba'ca (another name for Makkah) in Psalms 84:4-6. Isaiah 42:1-13 speaks of the beloved of God. 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 the 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.

Muhammad's Migration from Makkah to Madinah: Prophesied in the Bible?

Habakkuk 3:3 speaks of God (God's help) coming from Te'man (an Oasis North of Madinah according to J. Hasting's Dictionary of the Bible), and the holy one coming from Paran. That holy one who was under persecution migrated from Paran (Makkah) to be received enthusiastically in Madinah was none but prophet Muhammad. 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.

The Qur'an Foretold in the Bible?

For twenty-three years, God's words (the Qur'an) were truly put into Muhammad's mouth.  He was not the "author" of the Qur'an.  The Qur'an was dictated by Angel Gabriel who asked Muhammad to simply repeat the words of the Qur'an as he heard them.  These words were then committed to memory and to writing of those who hear them during Muhammad's lifetime and under his supervision. Was it a coincidence that the prophet "like unto Moses" from the "brethren" of the Israelites (i.e. from the Ishmaelites) was also described as one in whose mouth God will put His words and that he will speak in the name of God (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, prophesies Isaiah "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 reflecting the state of tension and concentration he went through at the time of revelation.  Another related point is that the Qur'an 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.

That Prophet - PARACLETE - Muhammad

Up to the time of Jesus (peace be upon him), the Israelites were still awaiting that prophet like unto Moses prophesied in Deuteronomy 18:18. When John the Baptist came, they asked him if he was Christ and he said "no".  Then 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 1:19-21).

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 that the contemporaries of Jesus could not bear.  While the Paraclete is described as the spirit of truth (whose meaning resemble Muhammad'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 he profile of that Paraclete.  In the words of the Dictionary of the Bible (Ed. J. Mackenzie) "Those items, it must be admitted do not give an entirely cohesive picture."

Indeed history tells us that may early Christians understood the Paraclete to be a man and not a spirit,  This might explain the following who  responded to some one who claimed, without meeting the criteria stipulated by Jesus , to be the awaited "Paraclete". It was Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) who was the Paraclete, Comforter, helper, admonisher sent by God after Jesus.  He testified of Jesus, taught new things that 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 God, the only Universal Messenger to unite the whole of humanity under God 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 true and false prophets (Deuteronomy 18:22).  He did reprove the world of sin, of righteousness and of judgement (John 16:8-11).

Was the Shift of Religious Leadership Prophesied?

Following the rejection of the last Israelite prophet, Jesus, it was about time that God's promise to make Ishmael a great nation to be fulfilled (Genesis 21:13, 18).

In Matthew 21:19-21, Jesus spoke of the fruitless fig tree (A Biblical symbol of prophetic heritage) to  be cleared after being given the last chance of three years ( the duration of Jesus' ministry) to give fruit. In a later verse in the same chapter, Jesus said "Therefore, say I unto you, The Kingdom of God shall be taken away from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruit thereof" (Matthew 21:43).  That nation of Ishmael's descendants (the rejected stone in Matthew 21:42) which was victorious against all super-powers of its time as prophesied by Jesus: "And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken, but on whosoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder" Matthew (21:44).

Out of Context Coincidence?

Is it possible that the numerous prophecies cited here are all individually and combined out of context misinterpretations?  Is the opposite true, that such infrequently studied verses fit together consistently and clearly to point to the advent of the man who changed the course of human history, Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him).  Is it reasonable to conclude that all these prophecies, appearing in different books of the Bible and spoken by various prophets at different times were all coincidence?  If this is so, here is another strange "coincidence"!

One of the signs of the prophet to come from Paran (Makkah) is that he will come with "tens of thousands of saints" (Deuteronomy 33:2 KJV).   That was the number of faithful who accompanied Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) to Paran (Makkah) in his victorious, bloodless return to his birthplace to destroy the remaining symbols of idolatry in the Ka'bah. Says God as quoted by Moses: "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." (Deuteronomy 18:19)

Dear Readers: May the light of truth shine in your heart and mind.  May it lead you to peace and certitude in this life and eternal bliss in hereafter. Amin.

I am a Christian who is searching for Gods truth not mans truths. We, Jews, Christians & Muslims all believe in the one God and the devil has been tearing us apart with the comments and actions I have read here and elsewhere.

Why are we arguing over prophets etc when we should be following Gods laws. God is almighty, forgiving, loving and all knowing. We sit here and praise men (prophets, saints etc) when all we should be doing is following God's commandments. Yes they were blessed as they were chosen to reveal His laws to us but they were still men! Shame on you all as you have forgotten that we ALL believe in one God and one God only. It is the devils work that we fight and kill our brothers and sisters in God's name.

God has never asked us to do this, nor have any of the prophets nor the messiah.

Pray for Gods forgiveness. I pray for peace and blessings on you all.

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.

The truth will become clear on the day of judgement. Those who deny any of Allah's Prophets are in great error and will be the losers on that day. Jesus clearly foretold of the Prophet Muhammad when he spoke to his Disciples and said "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth (the comforter), 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. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you. All things that the Father hath are mine: therefore said I, that he shall take of mine, and shall shew it unto you." John 16:12-15

Jesus gives us a clear answer as to whether or not the Bible anticipates the coming of Muhammad.

When John the Baptist was in prison for speaking out against Herod marrying his sister, John (the Baptist) sends a message to Jesus in Luke 7

(v19) And John (the Baptist) calling unto him two of his disciples sent them to Jesus, saying , Art thou he that should come ? or look we for another?

Jesus gives them an answer to send back to John the Baptist

(v22) Then Jesus answering said unto them, Go your way , and tell John what things ye have seen and heard ; how that the blind see , the lame walk , the lepers are cleansed , the deaf hear , the dead are raised , to the poor the gospel is preached .

In other words, Jesus is telling John, I am the fulfill-er of the prophecies, you need not expect anyone else, no other will come after me.

Plain and simple, case closed. NO Muhammad!

but Jesus was saying/preachin g to the Children of Israel not to the romans. And Jesus ascended to heaven before great war between Jews and Romans.

Only in the 4th cenutry Roman Empire forced romans citizen to embrace Paul version of religion. In the first centrury, it shall be noted that Nasorean/Ebioni tes had condemned Paul for bring heresy to Jewish ordains (original teachings of Jesu).

Genesis 21:21
He lived in the wilderness of Paran, and his mother took a wife for him from the land of Egypt.

Did John the Baptist live in Paran? Did his mother took a wife for him form the land of Egypt? Well i know about the Prophet Mohammed pbuh, that he lived in Paran and that his mother took a wife from him from Egypt. Now you answer that please. ;)

Well is there any book on earth who ever did know the name of someone of the future? Even the prophet abraham pbuh didn't know that jesus will be named jesus. So how could be jesus knowing there will be a mohammed. The fact is that after jesus pbuh there should come another prophet. From Paran, and his mother will bring him a wife from the land of Egypt. And coincidence mohammed married a women from egypt and did live in Paran. But sadly there will always be people who know the truth but always tell lies about it and turn the words. Deep in your heart and head you know the truth but you can't live with it and can't admit it. But the devil wants you to don't admit and wants that you stay in a lie.

Yeah it's true what you say. But i see no there will be a false prophet named Mohammed. And also i didn't see in the Bible the name Mohammed being a prophet. BUT what i did see is this. Isaiah 29:12
And when they give the book to one who cannot read, saying, “Read this,” he says, “I cannot read.”

Mohammed can't read. Even in the quran is the same verse. (96.1) Another verse that link Mohammed, Genesis 21:21
He lived in the wilderness of Paran, and his mother took a wife for him from the land of Egypt.
And yes indeed Mohammed pbuh did live in Paran and yes his mother did bring him a wife from Egypt.

John 1:11
He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him. And yes the people did not receive Mohammed pbuh. They even throw stones at him.

Matthew 7:16-20
You will recognize them by their fruits. Are grapes gathered from thornbushes, or figs from thistles? So, every healthy tree bears good fruit, but the diseased tree bears bad fruit. A healthy tree cannot bear bad fruit, nor can a diseased tree bear good fruit. Every tree that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. Thus you will recognize them by their fruits." O and yes what fruit loves everyone on earth where the prophet Mohammed always speaker about and what al the arabs bring at that time? DATE. Lovely sweet DATE. In dutch you say dadel.

Deuteronomy 18:18 "I will raise for them a Prophet like you (Moses) from among their brethren and will put My words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them, all that I command him."
This verse speaks of only one man and that is John the Baptist not Muhammad.

Isaiah 42:6

6 “I, the Lord, have called You in righteousness,
And will hold Your hand;
I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people,
As a light to the Gentiles.
That verse can not be talking about Muhammad ether because it talks about I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people, As a light to the Gentiles. Giving someone as a covenant to the people, the only covenant that was given was the one that God gave to the Gentiles which was between Jesus and the Gentiles when he bought the Church of God with his blood.

John 1:19-21

19 Now this was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders[a] in Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was. 20 He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, “I am not the Messiah.”

21 They asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?”

He said, “I am not.”

“Are you the Prophet?”

He answered, “No.”

Jesus never preached to the gentiles , only to the Children of Israel. What did Jesus taught to the gentiles? You will never find teachings uttered from the mouth of Jesus for gentiles.

but indeed there is one man who claimed to be guided by Holy Spirit and spread about faith to the romans. He was Paul. Thus Jesus do not fulfill Isaiah 42 as it was not Jesus himself that brought faith to gentiles. But Paul. Did Paul fulfill Isaiah 42? Thus then we shall read further. Did Paul lead a war to demolish molten images. Did the land Kedar and Nebaioth (Sela) rejoice upon the faith brought by Paul? Certainly Paul too do not fulfill the prophecy of Isaiah 42

Song of Solomon 5:16 - the original Hebrew clearly says "Muhammadin" - the "in" being a sign of respect like "sahib".
The translations have been distorted twice to avoid this, but the Jews who recite this today still use the original Hebrew. Search YouTube for the Song of Solomon 5:16. :-)

Matthew 7:15 beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheeps clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

The prophecy tells about Ahmad; 'Servant of God' whom will war to correct the wrongs and bringing judgement based on the law of God. He will liberate act of worshiping molten images and thus Arabia (wilderness desert, villages and cities) will glorify God since then. As can be seen today, inhabitants of Arabia are worshiping,prai sing God and singing words of God daily.

And we continue reading Isaiah 42:18 - 25; God remind the 'blind and deaf' about the wrath of God towards Children of Israel, who neglect the message brought by past Servant of God.

And not to repeat; the same mistake upon the coming of the new Servant of God,
~~

And if we look at the passages in Isaiah. God address His chosen servants with their names, and in the prophesied verse we see God mention clearly the prophet's name. Some examples of God mentioning His servant by name.
(My Servant Isaiah, My Servant Eliakim, David My Servant, Jacob My Servant, My Servant Israel, and so in Isaiah 42:1 , God specifically mention My Servant Ahmad)

word Atmak not necessarily means ‘whom I uphold’ but is infact a name

the writing of Atmak is אתמך
the writing of Ahmad is אחמד

Isaiah 42:1
God says
“Behold, 'My Servant' (pronounced as Abd-ee), ‘whom I uphold’ (pronounced as Atmak);

God mentioning about the coming of His servant
Behold My Servant Ahmad (Isaiah 42:1) - so who is this Ahmad as in God'servant?

He is none other than
Abd-Allah Ahmad (Servant of God, Ahmad) - th name of Prophet Muhammad s.a.w

Great article, I told someone about Isaiah 42:1-13 and they argued that Jesus was sent to Jews and Gentiles, so I argued that Jesus was sent for the Jews and Paul sent /his/ version of what happened to the Gentiles who did not know Jewish history.

But if it hadn't had been for Paul's encounter with Jesus on the Damscus road, Paul would not have been SENT (by Jesus) to the Gentiles.

the claim of Paul sent to gentiles is untrue. Paul version of Christiantiy was not embraced by romans in 1st century, but rather 300 years later forced by Roman Empire. Infact there are many version of non-Jewish sects that worship Jesus in 1st cenutry.

Obviously "submiter" you are a "true" follower of the illiterate (imitation) prophet.

#1 - a "gentile" does not Roman, it means anyone not Jewish.

#2 - an "sent" does not mean accepted, so just because Rome didn't accept Christianity doesn't mean that Paul wasn't SENT to the Gentiles

and last of all, Paul, who was Saul was a Pharisee of Pharisees, meaning he was a Bible teacher to the Bible teachers. He was the type of person that the experts went to for his opinion.

So, to say that he didn't know Jewish history would be laughable if it weren't so sad and pathetic and showing your obvious TAUGHT biases.

By the way, you should read the first 3 verse of the Book of Acts chapter 15, and see how the Gospel as given/taught by Paul was ACCEPTED by the gentiles!

A teacher to the Romans, not gentile. Everybody knows that. He proclaim to met a "spiirt" He also proclaim the Jewish Laws has been fulfilled and no longer to be followed as Jesus had ascend to heaven.

Its really easy to spot how Paul was not among the early followers of Jesus (pbuh). Do some counter check on his teachings with early gentile teachings preached by Prophet Noah. They are totally different.

Also, no Jewish sect view Holy Spirit as God. Nor they view man as God.

Read Deuteronomy 13. God remind Israelites about new/unheard God. That certainly refers to Triune-Oneness God, do you agree?. As worshiping idolatary gods/goddess have existed before during the time of Prophet Abraham. Certainly it can not be referring to idol god, ONLY new/unheard god that is the Triune-Oneness God. Now think about it.

Also read Isaiah 41& 42 a prophecy about the biography of prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Thus, Pray to God for guidance.

I thank the muslim brothers and author, through this article and their comments they accept that the bible is not corrupted, coz they have taken verses from the
bible to prove the existence of their prophet. I request only one thing my dear muslim brothers, please come out of islam mindset and read John 14:16.
It says "ANOTHER comforter/helpe r", it means there is already a comforter exists(ie Holy Spirit in Jesus and not
Muhammad, coz he did not exist that time). Again, "he may abide with you FOREVER." it means the comforter/helpe r would be with you all the time.(This does not
mean Muhammad, coz he cannot be with us all the time). There are so many verses that proves the spirit of truth is the holy spirit. The very next verse says
"The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you".
For the verse, Deu 18:18, it says, "among THEIR brethens", the word 'THEIR' here refers Israelites, the descendants of Jacob(Israel). There is no way, Ishmael
can come into this picture. Also, the verse Deu 34:10, also confirms that the mentioned prophet is from israel.

The words ANOTHER comforter/helpe r cannot be refer the Holy Spirit because the Holy Spirit was already there. And if Jesus refer it to the Holy Spirit he should just say the words Holy Spirit besides "another comforter"..By the way how can Holy Spirit replace Jesus (human) to teach human to follow the law. The words THEIR brethens are subjectives...D oes verse Deu 34:10 linked withe verse that mentioned the coming prophet that was mentioned!!!

Brother. The next verse john 14:17 says the Spirit of truth. The world cannot accept him, because it neither sees him nor knows him. But you know him, for he lives with you and will be in you. How could this be Muhammad? Yes the verse in deu concerns about the prophet from Israel.
Holy Spirit would not replace Jesus. The Holy Spirit will abide with the Followers of Jesus forever and guide us into the truth.(John 16:13)
