7: 157"Those who follow the apostle the unlettered 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#
*** Only in the WISHFULL thinking of the followers of Muhammad could they PROVE that Muhammad was ever mentioned or predicted anywhere in the Torah especially since he is not of the descendants/seed of Issac.
The Biblical verse mentioned above pertained ONLY to the descendants of Jacob - of whom Moses was one- and no other branch of the family of Abraham; Muhammad after all, is allegedly descended from Ishmael and hence cannot be the one among the predicted.
Neither is Muhammad mentioned anywhere in the New Testament no matter how his followers, in DESPERATION, try their best to contort language, deform history and twist logic.
Besides, from the death of Moses to the advent of Muhammad there were numerous OTHER Hebrew prophets, everyone of them was a descendant of Isaacand not of Ishmael.
In fact, the Torah instructs the Israelites -
Deut. 13:2-4 "… if there arises amongst you a prophet or a dreamer …urging you to follow other gods…pay no attention to the words of that prophet or dreamer.."
Sahih Al-Bukhari HadithHadith 5.277Narrated byAbu Huraira
The Prophet said, "Had only ten Jews believe me, all the Jews would definitely have believed me."
*** Muhammad fitted this description so completely that among the TENS of THOUSANDS of Jews in the Arabian Peninsula, not even TEN individuals were willing to follow Muhammad even upon PAIN of DEATH ***
61:6 "And Jesus, the son of Mary, said: 'Children of Israel, I am the Messenger of Allah (sent) to you, confirming that (which was revealed) before me in the Torah,and giving Glad Tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmad, the Praised One.' But when he came to them with Clear Signs, they said, 'this is sorcery!'"
*** It is incumbant upon the followers of Muhammad to show a single verse in the New Testament predicting the arrival of one called Ahmad, especially one such as the alleged Muhammad who turned out to be a blood thirsty theological, sexual and economic PREDATOR and not a 'comforter' in the mold of the saintly Jesus ***
Al-Tirmidhi HadithHadith 5772Narrated byAbdullah ibn Salam
The description of Muhammad is written in the Torah and also that Jesus, son of Mary, will be buried along with him. AbuMawdud said that a place for a grave had remained in the house. Tirmidhi transmitted it.
*** There is not one single Muhammadan on the face of planet Earth - or anywhere else in the universe - who can point out such a PREDICTION anywhere in either the Hebrew Bible or the New Testament ***
