The Prophecy of the coming of a "Messenger" after Jesus Christ(pbuh):-

PBUH- Peace Be Upon Him

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 16:12–14:-

Again Jesus Christ said " I have many things to say unto you but you cannot bear them now. How be it, when he the spirit of truth is come, he will guide you unto all truth, he shall not speak of himself, but whatsoever he shall hear, that he shall speak, he shall show you things to come. He shall glorify me."

The above verses clearly refer to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as he was the the only religious figure after Jesus Christ who testified Jesus Christ as an article of faith. 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. . . . . But as a Mighty Messenger of God and not as Son of God.

The following verse confirms that the comforter being prophesied is indeed Prophet Muhammad.

Again, 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 Solomon 5:16 : His mouth is sweetness itself; he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, this is my friend, daughters of Jerusalem.

The word ‘altogether lovely’ in the original Hebrew text is מחמד, which is read ‘Mahammad’.

Here’s the Song of Solomon 5:16 being recited by a Rabbi in Hebrew.

John 16:7–11 : Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if I do not go away, the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send him to you. 8 And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin and righteousness and judgment: 9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in me; 10 concerning righteousness, because I go to the Father, and you will see me no longer; 11 concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

John 16:12–14 : “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you unto 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."

John 14:16–17 : "And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive, because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you."

John 14:26 : But the Helper, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.

Who is this Helper that Jesus say, will come after he’s gone?

Genesis 49:10 : The scepter shall not depart from Judah, Nor a lawgiver from between his feet, Until Shiloh comes; And to Him shall be the obedience of the people.

Some writers, like David Benjamin, believe that the Hebrew word Shiloh is actually a distortion of the Hebrew word "Shaluh" which means "Apostle/Messenger/One to be sent" or of the Hebrew word "Shiluah" which means "Apostle of God".

This verse says that there will come a Prophet who will take away the kingship and prophethood from the Tribe of Judah. Jesus was from the lineage of Judah. It clearly refers to someone who came after Jesus and is not from the Tribe of Judah.

Isaiah 29:12 : And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.

This verse refers to the Prophet Muhammad’s first divine revelation, when Archangel Gabriel appeared before him and said, “Read”, upon which he replied, “I am not learned”.

Isaiah 42:1–4 : "Behold! My Servant, whom I uphold; My Elect One, in whom My soul delights! I have put My Spirit upon Him; He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles.

2

He shall not cry out, nor raise His voice, nor cause His voice to be heard in the street.

3

A bruised reed shall He not break, and smoking flax shall He not quench. In truth He shall bring forth justice.

4

He shall not fail nor be discouraged, till He has established justice in the earth; and the islands shall wait for His law."

The first verse begins with: "Behold my Servant, whom I uphold; mine Elect...". The Hebrew word which was translated to "whom I uphold" is "אתמך"(Etmokh). This word never appears anywhere in the entire Bible except here.Muslim authors, pointing to the similarity between the writing of "אתמך"(etmokh) and the writing of "אחמד" which is the name Ahmad, suggested that an intended distortion might have been done by the scribes of Scripture in the first verse of this chapter in order to hide the name of the Chosen Servant of God which is "אחמד" (Ahmad).

Isaiah 42:10-13 : Sing unto the Lord a new song, and His praise from the ends of the earth, you who go down to the sea, and all that is therein, the islands, and the inhabitants thereof!

11

Let the wilderness and its cities lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar inhabits. Let the inhabitants of Sela sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains.

12

Let them give glory to the Lord, and declare His praise in the islands.

13

The Lord shall go forth like a mighty man; He shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: He shall cry, yea, roar; He shall prevail against His enemies.

Isaiah 42:13 is believed to be a prophecy of the Muslim conquests. "The new song" is often interpreted as a reference to the Arabic Qur'an or to the Adhan "the Islamic call to prayer". The Islands could be a reference to Indonesia and Malaysia. The mention of Mount Sela‘ "the mountain of Medina" and the mention of Kedar "the forefather of Muhammad", in verse 11, is also considered by Muslims to be a proof.

Habakkuk 3:3 : God will come from the south, and the holy one from mount Pharan: His glory covered the heavens, and the earth is full of his praise.

Since there is no connection between Jesus and Mount Pharan "the Mount of Ishmael"(near Mecca), Muslims argue that the "holy one" in this verse is Muhammad.

There are three primary passages in the Bible that Muslims often point to as prophecies of the coming of Muhammad: Deuteronomy 18:15-22, Song of Solomon 5:16, and John 16:5-11.

First, in regards to Deuteronomy 18:15-22, the immediate context of this passage refers back to verses 9-14. There Moses warns the people of the danger of false prophets. God's people are to avoid any and all who presume to speak authoritatively about spiritual truth apart from God’s truth. What is God’s truth? Verse 15 says a particular prophet will arise from the Jews (i.e., “your own brothers”) who will be like Moses. Notice that it's not just any prophet, as there have been many, but a special prophet. People who studied and believed the Old Testament writings were looking for this particular, special prophet. In fact, some Jewish leaders thought the fiery preacher John the Baptist might be the fulfillment of Moses' prophecy (see John 1:19-30). John the Baptist, however, said that he was the forerunner of the prophet of whom Moses spoke, not the prophet Himself.

Who then is this prophet spoken of in the Bible? He is clearly none other than the Lord Jesus Christ. John 1:43-45 records that the early followers of Jesus understood He was the prophet of whom Moses wrote. Jesus Himself declared this about Himself (Luke 24:27). The most complete statement pointing to Jesus as the promised prophet is found in Acts 3:12-26. The deacon, Stephen, reiterated this in Acts 7:37. Such notable men as John the Baptist, Philip, Peter, and Stephen all testified that Jesus Christ, not Muhammad, is the prophet predicted in Deuteronomy 18:15-22.

Second, in Song of Solomon 5:16, the maiden says of her lover, 'His mouth is sweetness itself; he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, this is my friend, daughters of Jerusalem.' The word translated as 'lovely' is the Hebrew word machamadim. It is the plural of machamad, which means “lovely, cute, or desirable.” Although it is the root word of Muhammad, it does not follow that the verse refers to Muhammad, especially since the word used is a plural adjective, not the name of a person.

Finally, in John 16:5-11, Jesus prophesies that after He leaves, the Counselor will come, and this Counselor will “convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment” (John 16:8). Who is this Counselor? Jesus Himself gives the answer a few verses later in John 16:13, “But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all truth…” Jesus explicitly identifies the Counselor as the Holy Spirit. Jesus previously had used very similar terminology to predict the coming of the Holy Spirit: “But the Counselor, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name…” (John 14:26). It is abundantly clear in the Bible that the Counselor Jesus prophesied was the Holy Spirit, not Muhammad.

In conclusion, the Bible nowhere specifically predicts the coming of Muhammad. Muhammad was not the prophet Moses predicted, and Muhammad was not the Counselor Jesus predicted. Since the message of Muhammad contradicts the message of Jesus and the Bible on many points, the only biblical prophecy that would apply to the coming of Muhammad would be Matthew 24:11, “And many false prophets will appear and deceive many people…”
