IMPORTANT:Before I start with evidence from the bible, about the glad tiding of Muhammad. I must make the everyone aware, that Muslims do not believe that the bible is in tact to as it was originally put together. Muslims believe that the bible has been corrupted, as history also tells us(see council of nicea). Although we do not put trust in the bible, some parts of the bible remain in its original form. Some of the evidences I will be sharing could be some of the verses that have been altered, or maybe the verses that I will post are actually the few unaltered verses of the bible.
Narrated by Ibn Ishaq, Salama bin Salaam bin Waqsh, said a Jewish neighbor in Medinah told his family about the Resurrection, the day of judgement, the reckoning, and heaven and hell. He said that to polytheist who did not believe him. They asked him “what proof is there?”, the Jew told them that a prophet will come from these lands(Arabia) and he pointed toward Makkah and Yemen. They asked when he will come, the Jew pointed at Salama who was the youngest and said if he lives a natural life he will see him. Salama lived to see Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
Even though the bible has changed through out the years, there are still Glad Tidings of the coming of Muhammad PBUH left in the bible. In Deuteronomy verse 18:18 this verse says
“18. I(God) will raise up for them(Israelies) a prophet like you(Moses PBUH) from among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him”
This verse fits Muhammad PBUH like a glove, and fits no one else. Christian say this verse refers to Jesus PBUH. But Muhammad PBUH resembles Moses PBUH. Moses and Muhammad PBUT, both had parents while Jesus PBUH only had a mother. Both Moses and Muhammad PBUT had children, Jesus PBUH did not. Moses PBUH was born in a natural way so was Muhammad PBUH, while Jesus PBUH was born in a miraculous fashion. Moses and Muhammad PBUT were both accepted by their nation, but Jesus PBUH was not accepted by his nation(as stated in the bible “He Jesus came to his nation, and he was accepted not”). Moses and Muhammad PBUT were rulers on earth, they in forced punishment, Jesus PBUH did not rule. Muhammad and Moses PBUT came with a new law(The Quran, and The Torah), Jesus PBUH came to follow the law of Moses PBUH. Moses PBUH has led his people on hijra(migration)(from Egypt to the Holy Land) so has Muhammad PBUH(from Makkah to Medinah), Jesus PBUH did not. Both Moses and Muhammad PBUT both won battles against their enemies, while Jesus PBUH did not fight. Both Moses and Muhammad PBUT died a natural death, while Jesus PBUH was elevated(or as Christians think he was killed). Both Moses and Muhammad PBUH are buried in the ground, while Jesus PBUH was not. Muhammad and Moses PBUT both became prophets at the age of 40, while Jesus PBUH became a prophet at the age of 30. No one came after Moses PBUH that has resembled him like Muhammad PBUH. This verse does not speak of an Jewish prophet because of Deuteronomy verse 18:34 says no one from among the Jews is like Moses PBUH. There is only one nation that are the brothers of the Jews, and it is the Arabs. The Prophecy in Deuteronomy which says “I will put my words in his mouth” The Qur’an says the same thing about Muhammad PBUH, while the bible was written by many different people. They say it was inspired by god.
There is another Isaiah 29:11-18 which says.
“11 And the vision of all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed:
12 And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.”
That is just like the first in counter of revelation Muhammad PBUH had with Gabriel. Gabriel told Muhammad to “Read” and Muhammad who did not know how to read responded with “I cannot read”. In Hebrew the word for “Read this” is Qarah, the first word revealed from the Qur’an to Muhammad PBUH was “Iqra” which means “Read”. The prophecy says that before the revelation, the law of god will be replaced by the law of the land. That is what happened with the Law of Israel changed because of Saint Paul.
The Hijra (Migration from Makkah to Madinah) was prophesied in Habakkuk verse 3:3
“3. God came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise.”
This verse refers to, two places Teman and Paran. Teman is an oasis just north of Madinah. That is referring to Madinah. Paran is a name for Makkah, because the bible says Hagar and Ismael PBUH were left in Paran. Which is what is known as Makkah. Muhammad means praised, he is the most praised one on earth. This verse is all about Muhammad PBUH.
In Deuteronomy verse 18:21-22:
“21 You may say to yourselves, ‘How can we know when a message has not been spoken by the LORD?’
22 If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the LORD does not take place or come true, that is a message the LORD has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously. Do not be afraid of him.”
Meaning if a prophet claims “this is from God” than it is from God, if not it is not from god. The Qur’an is showing everyday the miracles of the Qur’an. There is nothing in the Qur’an has been disproved yet. Never has a book been compared to it.
In Isaiah 21:7 it states:
“When he sees riders, horsemen in pairs, A train of donkeys, a train of camels, Let him pay close attention, very close attention.”
Christians would say the group of donkeys is referring to Jesus PBUH because he rode a donkey, but Muhammad PBUH is the only Prophet to ride on a Camel. This verse refers to both Jesus and Muhammad PBUT.
In Isaiah 21:9 it states:
“Now behold, here comes a troop of riders, horsemen in pairs.” And one said, “Fallen, fallen is Babylon; And all the images of her gods are shattered on the ground.”
Babylon is referring to present day Iraq. This prophecy is saying that the army will destroy the idol worshiping of Iraq. This army is referring to the Army of Umar ibn Al Khattab, whose army destroyed the idol worshiping in Iraq.
In Isaiah 21:14-15 it states:
“14 The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought water to him that was thirsty, they prevented with their bread him that fled.
15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.”
This Prophecy is referring to the Hijra(migration) and the answar(helpers in Madina) who brought food and water to the Muslims of Makkah.
In Isaiah 21:16-17 it states:
“16 For thus hath the Lord said unto me, Within a year, according to the years of an hireling, and all the glory of Kedar shall fail:
17 And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men of the children of Kedar, shall be diminished: for the LORD God of Israel hath spoken [it].”
Who are the children of Kedar? The bible speaks of Kedar in Genesis verse 25:14:
“14 These are the names of Ishmael’s sons, listed in the order of their birth: Nebaioth (Ishmael’s firstborn), Kedar, Adbeel, Mibsam.”
Kedar is one of the sons of Ishmael PBUH. This is referring to Arabs, since the people of Quraish are decedents of Kedar.
The original verse 16 and 17 of Isaiah chapter 21, is referring too the Battle of Badr. The battle of Badr happened a year after Hijrah, just like this verse follows the verse referring to Hijrah. In the Battle of Badr most of the leaders of the Quraish died.
In Isaiah 11:1-2 it states:
“1 But a shoot shall sprout from the stump of Jesse, and from his roots a bud shall blossom.
2 The spirit of the LORD shall rest upon him: a spirit of wisdom and of understanding, A spirit of counsel and of strength, a spirit of knowledge and of fear of the LORD”
Who is Jesse? Jesse is referring to Ishmael PBUH. Jesse is an abbreviation for Ismael AS. This verse means that someone will come from the descendants of Ismael. This prophecy can not fit anyone but Muhammad PBUH because he was the most prominent decedent of Ismael.
In Deuteronomy verse 33:1-2 it states:
“1 This is the blessing which Moses, the man of God, pronounced upon the Israelites before he died.
2 And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them.”
Sinai is where Moses PBUH came from, Seir are mountains in Philistin, which is referring to Jesus PBUH, mount Paran is again referring to Makkah, and of Muhammad PBUH. The ten thousand saints is referring to the ten thousand Sahabas(companions of Muhammad) who with Muhammad opened Makkah.
In John verses 16:7-14 it states”
“7But I tell you the truth: It is for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor will not come to you; but if I go, I will send him to you.
8When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt[a] in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment:
9in regard to sin, because men do not believe in me;
10in regard to righteousness, because I am going to the Father, where you can see me no longer;
11and in regard to judgment, because the prince of this world now stands condemned.
12″I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear.
13But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come.
14He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.”
This is also referring to the coming of Muhammad (PBUH).
