What The Bible Says About The Coming of Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him)

Assalamu’alaikum, may peace and blessings be upon you.

I still remember my post on what the Qur’an says about Jesus (Peace Be Upon him) long time ago. As if to make the second edition of such post, here I would be discussing briefly on the issue of What The Bible Says About The Coming of Muhammad (Peace Be Upon him) which is basically based on the readings that I’ve done. For me, the best way to know and understand any particular religion or belief would be: to go to the basics i.e. to refer to the scriptures themselves. =) .

Anyway, in Deuteronomy Chapter 18 verse 18, God said to Moses,
“I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I command him

In the verse, the prophet described must have three characteristics:
1) He will be like Moses.
2) He will come from the brothers of the Israelites, i.e. the Ishmaelite.
3) God will put His words in the mouth of that prophet and he will declare what
God commanded him.

Now, the question arises..Which prophet does the verse refer to? Is it Muhammad (peace be upon him) or Jesus ( peace be upon him)?
1-Point number one stated that the prophet would be more like Moses.
>For some, this prophecy refers to Prophet Jesus ((Peace Be upon Him). However, isn’t it supposed to be that Jesus is different form Moses in the sense that he was born miraculously. To be exact, he was born without a father and God raised him up miraculously. As such, He cannot be like Moses as Moses was born in natural way. On the other hand, Muhammad is more like Moses in the sense that both were born in natural way and both died natural deaths. Other similarities are: Both married and had children and both were accepted by the people.
>Even if some people insist that it is referring to Jesus, isn’t it clearly stated in the verse that the person is like Moses-a PROPHET. Hence, Jesus would not fit in that category because he is not a prophet for the Christians.

2) Point number two stated that the prophet would be from among their brothers.
>From among the Ishmaelite, Abraham had two sons, Ishmael and Isaac (Genesis, chapter 21). Ishmael became the grandfather of the Arab nation, and Isaac became the grandfather of the Jewish nation. The prophet spoken of was to come not from among the Israelites themselves, but from among their brothers, the Ishmaelite. Muhammad, a descendent of Ishmael is indeed that Prophet.

3) Point number three stated that God will put His words in his mouth:
>Neither the content of the revelation nor its form was of Prophet Muhammad’s devising. Both were given by the angel, and Muhammad ‘s task was only to repeat what he heard. God sent the angel Gabriel to teach Muhammad the exact words that he should repeat to the people. The words are therefore not his own; they did not come from his own thoughts, but were put into his mouth by the angel. These are written down in the Qur’an word for word exactly as they came from God.
Allahu A’lam (Allah knows Best).
