JUNAID KHALEEL NURANI

The Holy Quran mentions that old Prophets were predicted the arrival of last and final Prophet Muhammad PBUH and specified in their Holy book which revealed to them.

Those who will serve the Messenger, unlettered the, communicator of hidden news when they will find with them have written in the Tourat and Injeel. He will bid them to do well and will forbid them from doing evil, and will make lawful for them clean things and will forbid for them unclean things, and will take off from them that burden and shackles which were upon them. Then those who believe in him and honour him and help him and follow that light which has been sent down with him, they are the persons who attained their objects. (Surah Al-A’raf 7:157)

Those whom we gave the Book recognize this prophet as man recognizes his sons and no doubt, a group of them conceal the truth knowingly (Surah Al-Baqara 2:146)

Mohammad is the Messenger of Allah and those with him are hard against the infidels and tender among themselves you will see them bowing and prostrating themselves in prayer seeking grace of Allah and His pleasure. Their mark is on their faces from the traces of prostrations This description of their is in Tourah and their description is in Injeel, as a cultivated field which puts forth its sprout, then strengthened it, then it became thick, then stood straight upon its stem, it looks pleasant to the cultivators that through them the hearts of the infidels may burn. Allah has promised unto those of them who are believers and do good, forgiveness and a great reward.) Surah Al-Fat-h 29)

And remember when Allah took from the prophets their covenant whatever I should give you of the Book and wisdom then comes to you the Messenger confirming your Books, then assuredly you shall believe in him and assuredly you help him. He said, ‘do you agree, and do you accept my heavy responsibility on it. All submitted ‘We did affirm, He said, ‘then be witness against one another and I am myself among witnesses with you. ( Surah Al-i’Imran 81)

Hence it can be noticed, there are number of verses narrating the coming of Prophet Muhammad PBUH in the Bible which in fact merged with words of Allah as well as priest. Jesus himself predicted the coming of another Prophet after his period according to Gospel of John.

And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever, Even the Spirit of truth, whom the world cannot receive because it neither sees him nor knows him. You know him, for he dwells with you and will be in you. (John 14:16, 17)

But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, he will teach you all things and bring to your remembrance all that I have said to you.( John 14:26)

Nevertheless, I tell you the truth: it is to your advantage that I go away, for if

I do not go away; the Helper will not come to you. But if I go, I will send

Him to you. And when he comes, he will convict the world concerning sin

And righteousness and judgment: (John 16:7,8)

“I have much more to tell you, but now it would be too much for you to bear. When, however, the Spirit comes, who reveals the truth about God; he will lead you into all the truth. He will not speak on his authority, but he will speak of what he hears and will tell you of things to come. He will give me glory because he will take what I say and tell it to you.”(John 16:12-14)

The word Helper, the Holy Spirit which is mentioned above refers to Prophet Muhammad PBUH because these words are the translation of Greek word periclitos which means “the praised one”. This is same to the Arabic word of “Ahmad” which is another famous name of Prophet Muhammad PBUH. Prophet Issa (Jesus) also predicted arrival of another Prophet named AHMAD: “And remember when Issa son of Maryam, said, ‘O children of Israel, I am Allah’s Messenger to you, confirming previous Book Tourat before me and conveying the glad news of the Messenger who will come after me, his name is Ahmad! ‘ But when Ahmed came to them with bright signs, they said, ‘this is an open magic.’” (Surah As-Saff: 6)

The features of Prophet which Jesus predicted are as follows:

1 He will come after Jesus

2 He will teach the world about justice, sin and Day of Judgment

3 He will lead into Truth

4 He will glory the Jesus

5 He will always be with people

6 He will tell about the things to come

7 He will not speak by Himself

8 He will make reminders about all things which Jesus taught

All things which above mentioned happened in the life of Prophet Muhammad PBUH. So the prophecy of Jesus clearly was fulfilled in the Prophet Muhammad PBUH.
