By taking out of context a sentence in the Torah and by deliberately contorting the meaning of a Greek word to suit their agenda, the followers of Muhammad tried and continue to propagate the falsehood that Muhammad is mentioned in both the Torah and the New Testament.
In reality, and contrary to the assertions and deliberate falsifications of the Quranand the followers of Muhammad, he was NEVER mentioned nor predicated in either of them.
7: 157 "Those who follow the apostle the unlettered [al Ummi] prophet whom they find mentioned in their own (Scriptures); in the law and the Gospel; for he commands them what is just and forbids them what is evil: he allows them as lawful what is good (and pure) and prohibits them from what is bad (and impure); He releases them from their heavy burdens and from the yokes that are upon them. So it is those who believe in him honor him help him and follow the light which is sent down with him it is they who will prosper."
# In this verse is a prefiguring, to Moses, of the Arabian Messenger, the last and greatest of the messengers of Allah. Prophecies about him will be found in the Taurat and the Injil. In the reflex of the Taurat as now accepted by the Jews, Moses says: "The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me" (Deut. xviii. 15): the only Prophet who brought a Shari'at like that of Moses was Muhammad Al- Mustafa, and he came of the house of Ismail the brother of Isaac the father of Israel. In the reflex of the Gospel as now accepted by the Christians, Christ promised another Comforter (John xiv. 16): the Greek word Paraclete which the Christians interpret as referring to the Holy Spirit is by our Doctors taken to be Periclyte, which would be the Greek form of Ahmad. See Q. lxi. 6#
61: 6And remember Jesus the son of Mary said: "O Children of Israel! I am the apostle of Allah (sent) to you confirming the Law (which came) before me and giving glad Tidings of an Apostle to come after me whose name shall be Ahmad."But when he came to them with Clear Signs they said "This is evident sorcery!"
#5436 The mission of Jesus was to his own people, the Jews. Cf. Matt. x. 5-6. See also Matt. xv. 24: "I am not sent but to the lost sheep of Israel;" also Matt. xv. 26: "It is not meet to take the children's bread, and to cast it to dogs." (61.6)
5437 Cf. Matt. v. 17. (61.6)
5438 "Ahmad", or "Muhammad", the Praised One, is almost a translation of the Greek word Periclytos. In the present Gospel of John. xiv. 16, xv. 26, and xvi. 7, the word "Comforter" in the English version is for the Greek word "Paracletos", which means "Advocate", "one called to the help of another, a kind friend", rather than "Comforter". Our doctors contend that Paracleots is a corrupt reading for Periclytos, and that in their original saying of Jesus there was a prophecy of our holy Prophet Ahmad by name. Even if we read Paraclete, it would apply to the holy Prophet, who is "a Mercy for all creatures" (xxi. 107) and "most kind and merciful to the Believers" (ix. 128). See also n. 416 to iii. 81. (61.6)
5439 Our holy Prophet was foretold in many ways; and when he came, he showed forth many Clear Signs, for his whole life from beginning to end was one vast miracle. He fought and won against odds. Without learning from men he taught the highest wisdom. He melted hearts that were hard, and he strengthened hearts that were tender and required support. In all his sayings and doings men of discernment could see the working of Allah's hand; yet the ignorant Unbelievers called it all Sorcery!-called that unreal which became the most solid fact of human history! (61.6)#
Let us exmine the veracity of the allegations above. In the Torah, the verse alluded to in the Quran says :
Deut 18:15"The Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee,of thy brethren, like unto me"
The operative words are"from the midst of thee, of thy brethren" which can only mean of the descendants of Israelfrom the branch ofIssacand definitely NOT from the branch of Ishmael.
Since the Arabs claim they are descended from Ishmael, then Muhammad cannot possibly be counted as a prophet from the descendants of Issac.
More over, after Moses came tens of other Hebrew prophets, from among the Israelites that Muhammad, the Quran and his followers, conveniently but understandably never mention.
The readers should be made aware that in the whole Bible there was never mention of ANY prophet descended from the line of Ishmael.
Muhamnmad thus FAILS the test of being the declared and predicted prophet in the Torah.
In John 14:16, the Comforter, Paracletes has absolutely nothing to do with Muhammad or the alleged Greek form for Ahmad.
All of a sudden, the followers of Muhammad who have not yet mastered the contents of the Quran, are claiming to be AUTHORITIES on the languages of theGreeks, Latins and Hebrews.
If Muhammad was the 'comforter' then how could he have caused the MASSACRES,
PLUNDERING of thousands upon thousands of otherArabs:
Pagan,Judaized and Christian ?
Which part of his mission was'comforting'?
All the CONTORTED and PERVERTEDMuhammadan explanations PROVE only one thing:
An incredible DESPERATION and OBSESSION to explain the unexplainable by any and all means possible to give Muhammad a worthy BIBLICAL background showing that he was a prophet like theHebrew ones that he respected and emulated so much.
