In this article, we’ll attempt to touch upon one of the most important questions in human history, which has significance and relevance even today in its entirety, the last Messenger of God, Prophet Muhammad (Sallallahu Sallam). Who is followed by more than 1.3 billion people in the world mentioned in the religious scriptures and prophecies before the revelation of the Holy Quran? This question solves many uncertainties in the soup ritual understanding of the person and provides the larger picture of the structure of human society and religious formation. This article will cite some critical references from Holy Bible about Prophet Muhammad. So Lets Start
Is Muhammad In The Bible?
Disagreements that the predictions of Muhammad exist in the Bible have become part of Muslim practice from the early history of Muhammad’s ummah (Arabic: م area). Numerous Christians throughout history, such as John of Damascus as well as John Calvin, have described Muhammad as the Antichrist of the New Testament.
Muslim writers have actually suggested that numerous specific flows within the scriptural text can be specifically identified as references to Muhammad, both in the Hebrew Bible/Old Testimony and the Christian New Testimony. Numerous verses in the Qur’an, as well as a number of hadiths, state that Muhammad is described in the Holy Bible.
Has Muhammad’s Name Been Omitted From The Bible?
Many Muslims try to discredit the validity of the Bible, as the name of Muhammad is not mentioned in a single verse. Based on these two verses found in his holy book al-Qur’an, he expects to see the name of Muhammad in the texts of Jews and Christians.
And when Isa bin Maryam said, “O Bani Israel, I am the Messenger of Allah sent to you, confirming (confirming) that Torah which already exists from me, and giving the good news of a Messenger who will come after me. , his name will be Ahmed” Surah As-Saff 61:6
Those who will follow that Messenger, the prophet Ummi (uneducated), whom they find written in their own Torah and Scripture. He commands them to do righteousness and forbids them from evil, and justifies what is sinful for them and forbids what is unholy; Surah Al-Araf 7:157
More educated Muslims know from research that there is no difference between ancient biblical manuscripts that existed after Muhammad and those found at the time of Muhammad. Therefore, the claim that Muhammad’s name has been omitted from the Bible is baseless and baseless. Nevertheless, it is claimed that the name of Muhammad is not explicitly mentioned in the Bible, but there are some indications about the name of Muhammad. Thus they claim that Muhammad came from God as a prophet to Christians, Jews, and people worldwide. With this logic, many Muslims come to Christians to pressure them to believe in Muhammad because Muhammad has come to fulfill the deen, i.e., to present the deen-e-Islam.
We have read above that some verses in the Qur’an say that Jesus Christ has brought good news about a coming prophet named Ahmed. Many Muslim scholars who have studied the Bible for the name of Muhammad claim that the New Testament of Scripture about the Ruh Quddus Holy Spirit in the Gospel of John is, in fact, about Muhammad. The prediction was made. They try to apply these words to Muhammad.
For example, read John 14:16, 15:26, and John 16:7. The original Greek word “Parakletos” in these two verses means “comforter,” “counsel,” or “adviser.” Many Muslim scholars claim that the original Greek writings contain “Parakletos,” which is a mistake. Instead, it should be “Parakletos,” a close translation of the word “Ahmad,” meaning “worthy of praise.”
We should first know that “Ahmed” and “Muhammad” are two different words. “Muhammad” is a name meaning “one who is praised,” but the word “Ahmad” is an “adjective” (attributive word), meaning “worthy of praise or praise.” It seems that before Muhammad, the word “Ahmad” was not used as a name for anyone. This is why we do not find the Messenger of Islam called Ahmad anywhere in the entire Quran, but he is named Muhammad everywhere.
What is described in the New Testament Scripture of John as Paracletes (“the comforter,” “counsel,” or “adviser”) is the “Holy Spirit” that no one can see. He lives with the believers and will be in them. He will testify to them about Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ used to refer to this spirit when he trained believers.
But you will certainly receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you as well as will certainly be my witnesses in Jerusalem and throughout Judea as well as Samaria, and also to the ends of the planet. Acts 1:8
Fifty days after the death of Jesus Christ, this commitment to the gift of the Holy Spirit was fulfilled in the lives of those devotees. All of it occurred incredibly on the day of Pentecost. This is exactly how Peter, an adherent of Jesus Christ, describes this excellent event.
God increased this Jesus, of whom we are all witnesses. Therefore, having received the supreme placement from the right-hand man of God and gotten that promised Holy Spirit from the dad, He has poured out what you see and hear. Acts 2:32 -33.
These things tell us that “Paracletes” can only be the Spirit of God. He can never be a human being. Furthermore, these “Paracletes” that Jesus Christ promised would come from God the Father, who came during the lifetime of Jesus Christ’s disciples. But when we see Muhammad, Muhammad was born…… 500 years after the death of all the disciples of Jesus Christ.
Muslims have also explored the Old Testament, especially the Torah, and the books of Moses, to link some of those verses to Muhammad to prove him a prophet. They refer to these sections or verses of Deuteronomy – Deuteronomy 18:15 and 18.
Yahweh, your God will produce a prophet like me from among you. That is, from among your brothers, you listen to him.
So I will raise a prophet like you from among their brothers for them, and I will put my word in his mouth. And whatever I command him, he will tell them.
