Prophet Muhammad Foretold in the Scriptures
Bahira the Christian Monk paying respect to the young Muhammad after Bahira had closely questioned him to confirm all the qualities to be possessed by the foretold Messiah as prophesied in the Scriptures
The coming of Prophet Muhammad had been foretold in the Torah. God had said to Moses:
"I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and I will put My words in his mouth; and he shall speak to them all that I shall command him" Deuteronomy 18:18
Who in the Old Testament were the brethren of the sons of Israel if not the sons of Ismael? (descended from Abraham's first wife Hagar at the well of Zam Zam at Makkah called Bakkah in those days) Who else could have been the Prophet like unto Moses? Who was more similar to him than the Prophet Muhammad?
in Bible has been fulfilled by the advent of Prophet Muhammad. Jesus says
in the Bible, John 16:7 and 16:13:
"If I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you, but if I depart I will send him unto you . . .We will guide you into all truth; for he shall not speak of himself but whatever he shall hear, that shall he speak . . ."
Prophet Muhammad was a receptacle of Divine revelation and Angel Gabriel used to bring the words from God, which would be "etched" upon his heart. The first revelation to Prophet Muhammad at the cave of Mount Hira:
the name of your Lord Who Creates
Creates man from a clot of blood
Read! And your Lord is most generous
Teaches man that which he knew not" Quran 96:1-5
Genesis 17:7 Covenant Allah (Elohim in Hebrew) made with Abraham and Ishmael
