Prophet Muhammad mentioned in Bibe and Torah
As Muslims we all come to beleive in all the divine religions that came before Islam, and all the Prophets, Jesus, Moses, Abraham..etc (peace be upon them all). However, why do Christians or Jews do not beleive in our Prophet as we beleive in theirs. The Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) has been mentioned in the Quran, Torah, and the Bible. If they have really read their Holy Books, haven't they come across these verses?
God says in the Holy Quran:
Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in the Torah and the Gospel. He orders them good, forbade them wrong, they make good things lawful, forbids them evil, and frees them of the burden and the fetters that hung over them. Those who believe in him, honor him and rescued after the light down with him, those are the winners. (The Family of Imran, V.81)
God confirms that the Prophet has been mentioned in the Torah. While talking to Moise, God says:
The Lord said to me [Moses]: “What they say is good. I will raise up for them a Prophet like you among their brothers; I will put My words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him. If anyone does not listen to My words that the Prophet speaks in My name, I will Myself call him to account.” (Deuteronomy 18:17–9)
In this verse, it is clearly shown that God tells Moise about the coming of a Prophet from among "your brothers". As we all know, all the Prophets descend from the same family of Abraham and Adam. God also says" I will put my words into his mouth", which means that the Prophet (peace be upon him) follows the sayings and instructions of God through the Holy Quran, which means that the Prophet came to complete the divine messages of Moise, Jesus, and all Prophets that came before.
Again, the bible comes to confirm, through Prophet Jesus (may God bless him), the arrival of a new Prophet:
"If you love me, keep my commandments. And I will pray the Father (God) and he'll give you another Comforter, because he is always with you. "(Jean1415et16)" When the Comforter, the Spirit of truth comes, He will guide you into all truth because he will not speak of himself but he says everything he hears and he will shew you things to come "John 16: 12-13.
This verse is somehow similar to the aboved mentioned verse from the Torah. Jesus says "he'll give you another Comforter, because he is always with you", which is quite similar to the verse of Moise " I will raise up for them a Prophet like you among their brothers". This Prophet or comforter will be raised from the same family of Prophecy, this means that Jesus like Moise was a Prophet not a God. Another similarity is "will not speak of himself but he says everything he hears..." Again like the Torah, Jesus says that Prophet Muhammad will follow the instructions of God, revealed to him through the Quran. Another striking contradiction in the verse of the Bible is that it speaks about two different concepts in just one verse: "I will pray the Father (God) and he'll give you another Comforter..." If we explain the word comforter in its context, it would mean "the Holy Spirit" in the Christian thought. Well, it would be inconsistent to say that thiscomforter is a Holy Spirit. Comforter in this sense would mean Prophet.
Bearing in mind the similarities between the three verses, it is only wise and logical to understand that God who sent the Quran upon Muhammad, sent the Bible upon Jesus,and the Torah upon Moise. This means that all the divine message complete one another
