- John 14:16:
Jesus Christ said “And I will pray the father, he shall send another comforter, that he may abide with you”
- John 15:26:
Jesus Christ said “And when the comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the father, even the spirit of truth, who proceedeth from the father, he shall testify me”.
- John 16:12–13:
“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
However, when the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth. For He will not speak on His own, but He will speak what He hears, and He will declare to you what is to come.
==> The above verses clearly refer to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). He ‘glorified’ Jesus Christ and Muslims are the only other people who believe in Jesus Christ. No Muslim is a Muslim if he doesn’t believe in Jesus Christ. .
The following verse confirms that the comforter being prophesied is indeed Prophet Muhammad.
- Isaiah 29:12 :
” And the book is delivered to him who is not learned, saying read this, I pray thee, and he saith, I am not learned”.
==>When angel Gabriel commanded Prophet Muhammad by saying ‘Iqra’ meaning ‘read’, Prophet Muhammad replied ‘ I am not learned’. These lines are the first verses of the Qur’an which were revealed upon Prophet Muhammad(pbuh).
- Song of Songs Chapter 5 verse 16 :
English translation :“His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.”
Hebrew : חִכּוֹ, מַמְתַקִּים, וְכֻלּוֹ, מַחֲמַדִּים; זֶה דוֹדִי וְזֶה רֵעִי, בְּנוֹת יְרוּשָׁלִָם.
“Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem.”
מַחֲמַדִּ = Muhammad
In the Hebrew language “im” is added for respect. Similarly “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.
- Deuteronomy 18:18 :
“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.”
==> In this verse, God is telling Moses that there will be a prophet ‘like unto thee’, which means that there will be a prophet like Moses. Who is this referring to?
This verse is not referring to Jesus as him and Moses only have two similarities. This verse is referring to Muhammad (pbuh) because he was like Moses.
Here are a few reasons why Muhammad was like Moses (peace be upon them both):
1. Moses had a father and mother. Muhammad (pbuh) had a father and a mother. Jesus only had a mother.
2. Muhammad and Moses were both born in the normal, natural course. But Jesus was created by a special miracle (Gospel of St. Matthew 1:18)
3. Muhammad and Moses married women and begot children, but Jesus remained unmarried.
4. Moses and Muhammad were accepted as prophets by their people although they went through hardships. But Jesus was rejected by his people (John 1:11).
5. Muhammad and Moses both brought new laws, but Jesus did not (Mathew 5: 17-18).
6. Muhammad and Moses both died natural deaths, but according to Christianity Jesus was killed on the cross.
7. Muhammad and Moses both lie buried in earth, but Jesus rests in the Heavens.
8. Muhammad and Moses were both spiritual and national leaders, Jesus was only a spiritual leader.
9. Muhammad and Moses were both victorious morally and spiritually, Jesus had a spiritual victory.
They are all messengers of Allah (Peace be upon them all).
