Similarities between Musa (AS) and Muhammad (SAW) that prove that God was prophe cizing the coming of Muhammad (SAW), not Isa (AS), in the Bible: -1- Moses and Muhammad (SAW) had parents while Isa only had a mother. -2- Moses and Muhammad both had children, Isa had no children. -3- Moses and Muhammad were both born in a normal way- Isa was born in a miraculous fashion -4- Moses and Muhammad were accepted by their nations while Isa was not. "He jesus came on to his own but his own received him not"- He was sent to the jews and they rejected him -5- Moses and Muhammad were rulers- they could enforce capital punishment. [ Musa had an isrealite to stoned to death because he was caught collecting wood on the sabeth]- Numbers 15:36 . Muhammad applied punishment when a woman came professing adultery. Isa was brought a case of a crime and he refused, saying "my kingdom is not of this wrold," I am not a ruler here. -6- Moses and Muhammad came with a new law- the Law of Quran and the Law of Torah - While Isa came to follow the Law of Moses did not. He said: "I came to follow the law jot by jot, dot by dot, letter by letter. Think not that I am come to destroy the law or the prophets. I am not come to destroy but to fulfill. For verily I say onto you, till heaven and Earth pass, one jot or one title shall in no wise pass from the Law till all be fulfilled. I came to fulfill the law of Moses. - Mathew 5:17-18 -7- Moses and Muhammad led their people in hijrah (some form of migration)/exodus, while Isa did not. -8- Moses and Muhmmad were both victorious against their enemies. Moses won against the Pharoah and Muhammad against his enemies. Isa never won in the worldly sense- in a battle in this world. Infact, the christains believe that he was killed. -9- Moses and Muhammad died a natural death. While for Isa, the Christians believe that he was killed; the Muslims believe that he was elevated. Either way, it was not a natural death. -10- Moses and Muhammad are both burried in the ground. Whereas Isa, the Christians believe he was burried and resurected, while the Muslims believe he was never burried to begin with. -11- Some Christians claim that Isa is God - then how can they say that he is similar to Moses, a prophet- while the Muslims say that Isa was a prophet. -12- Moses and Muhammad became prophets at the age of 40 [mentioned in Bible]. Isa became a prophet at the age of 30 -13- Christians claim that Isa was resurrected after his death. Neither Muslims nor Jews claim that Muhammad nor Moses was resurrected. Since Musa (AS) was telling this prophecy to the Jews, could the person prophesi zed be a jew? NO. - "And there arose not a prophet sent in Isreal like onto Moses"- Deuteronomy 34 :10 Who is it, then? - The answer is in the prophecy [it excludes the Jews]: "Prophet from among thei r bretheren (the brothern of the Jews). Who are the bretheren of the jews? There is only one nation that fulills this- the Arabs.Desendants of Ishaq and Is mail. Ishaq is the father of the Jews, and Ismail is the father of the Arabs. Ishaq had Yaqub and Yaqub is the father of the 12 tribes. So the Jews trace thei r ancestry to Ishaq, while the Arabs trace their ancestry to Ismail. So, He is not a Jew, but a from among the bretheren of the jews- which are the A rabs.

The prophecy goes on to say: "...and will put my words in his mouth." In other words, this prophet will not be speaking of his own, but he will be spe aking the words which are put in his mouth. This fits Muhammad (SAW) perfectly.M uhammad is not speaking on his own, he is speaking the words that are put into h is mouth by Allah (Through Jibreel). Example: "I am your Lord.I am your God."- Quran The Bible is different. Christians claim that the words of the Bible were inspri red by God, but the words are the words of men, and they admit that the Bible ha s many authors and the chapters of books of the Bible are named after the author . The prophecy continues: "... and he shall speak on to them all that I shall coma mand them" meaning he will not withold information (ordered onto him). Allah tells Muhammad (SAW): "Oh prophet, convey everything that you have receive d, and if you don't do so, then you have not conveyed the message." Ex.- When Muhammad ignored the blind man (ibn-umMaqtoom) -in Surah Abasa- when h e was speaking to the noble man of Quraish and Allah criticized his action. Ex. Surah Tahrim- "Why are you making hala haram on yourself inorder to please y our wives?" So, Muhammad (SAW) conveyed everything that was given to him. ________ ______ ____ :::Major events of the life of Muhammad are in the Bible::: 1. First revelation 2. Hijrah 3. Ghazwat Bdr 4. Fatha Makka ---1. First Revelation Another prophecy in Isiah 29:11-18 "and the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, 'read this' and h e says 'I am not learned'." The book is delivered to a man that is not literate. He is told read, and he (th e man) respondsback saying, "I cannot read." These were the exact words that were given by Jibreel (AS) to Muhammad (SAW) in his first encounter with revelation. --- The same word (QARA) was used in the original Hebrew text that is the same i n Arabic. Not only meaning of the words but the exact same meaning.

----- Prophecy Continues ----"....Before the time of this man who will receive the book (Muhammad (SAW)), the people would be forsaking the words of God for the prethept of man. -Meaning before Muhammad (SAW) people would neglect the Law of Allah and they wo uld follow the Law of man. Isa came to fulfill the Law of Moses while there was Saint Paul telling them oth erwise. Isa was circumcised, Paul says No you don't have to circumcise. Isa said I will fulfill the Law of Moses jot by jot, letter by letter; Paul says (to the people) no you do not have to fulfill the law. So the people left the Law of Go d and they began following the Law of man.- This is a fulfillment of the prophec y.

--- the Hijrah is prophecized in Habakuk 3:3 God his guidance came from Teman God comes from Teman, And the Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah. His splendor cov ers the heavens, And the earth was full of His praise. - This mentions 2 locations: Teman and Paran. Teman -according to the J. Hasting s dictionary of the Bible- is an Oasis just north of Madina. So Teman stands for Madina. 'Tema Teman' would stand for the location just north of madina. Paran / pharan/Bakkah, are all names of Makkah and this is according to the bible becaus e this is where Hajar and Ismail were left in Paran/Makkah. So, you have God coming from Teman- which is Madina. And you have the Holy one c oming from Paran - Makkah. The religion of Islam spread from Madina (in Makkah the Prophet (SAW) was not able to preach freely, there were too many restriction s. So after Hijrah) So God came from Teman, means the guidance of Allah comes from Madina. It goes to say, "the Holy one came from Mount Paran"-- Muhammad (SAW) came from Makkah. It says "and the earth was full of His praise"- Muhammad's name means pr aise and the earth today is full of his praise. This cannot fit anyone more than Muhammad because there is no one in history who's praised more than Muhammad (S AW). 28:38
