There is a comment question, Christians often repeat and ask Muslims we Muslims indicate that Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him had been prophesized about as the last and final Prophet and Messenger of God.

How can you Muslims use The Bible as evidence to prove that Your Prophet Muhammed had been prophesized about as the last and final messenger of God despite claiming the Bible had been tampered with and had been corrupted as you Muslims claim?

We Muslims say that the Bible had been Partially corrupted, which means there is some truth to it, and that Truth is what matches our Benchmark= The Glorious Holy Quran.
If you fabricated your passport or anyone of your personal identification documents- we still would be able to discover that you have falsified it AND that false parts can be used against you to prove that you have done that fabrication. This is exactly what we are saying here, the Bible had been partially corrupted and can be used against you.

Let’s start this topic straightforwardly. Below are some verses with explanations predicting the arrival of a new Prophet, (Muhammad PBUH)
However, Before Reading this article you must read that Early Christians Don’t believe In Trinity, Nor Jesus was a trinitarian. Trinity was Invented by Paul and the four gospels were inspired by him. Please first read the articles Below

Religion Of Jesus Or Saint Paul? | Reviewing Belief (Part 2)
Eight Biblical Passages Rejecting Jesus as God
Early Christians Rejected Trinity
Genesis 49:10:- The scripture (the staff in the hand of a priest as a symbol of Imperial Authority) will not depart from Judah, nor the ruler’s staff from between his feet, until he comes to whom it belongs and the obedience of the nations is his.”
(a) A chain of Israelite prophethood would cease when “he” (Muhammad P.B.U.H.) comes and other nations will follow him. It is he who will hold the scripture in his hand from the pulpit.
(b) This word “he” was written as “SILOH in earlier Bibles. It is changed to “he”. SILOH means peace, meaning Islam.
(c) All Prophets were sent for a particular nation and for a particular area but Muhammad was sent for the entire mankind of the world.
Matthew 15:24 states:
“Then Jesus said to the woman, “I was sent only to help God’s lost sheep–the people of Israel.”
Quran states: 21:107
“And We have not sent you, [O Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds.”
Isaiah 40:11:- He tends his flock like a shepherd.
Muhammad, as a boy used to go on daily wages as a shepherd to graze other’s goats and sheep on the outskirts of Mecca.
Deuteronomy 31:27: – Moses speaks to Jews- “For I (Moses) know how rebellious and stiff-necked you are If you have been rebellious against the Lord while I (Moses) am still alive and with you, how much more will you rebel after I die.
i.e. the descendants of Moses’ followers will not obey that Prophet (Muhammad) which is to come from among their brothers because Moses’ followers are rebellious, stiff-necked, and corrupt people.
That is why Jews are more against Muhammad (PBUH) Than any other nation
Deuteronomy 33:2:- Moses said- “The Lord came from Sinai and dawned over them from Seir; he shown forth from Mount Paran. He came with myriads of holy ones from the South, from the mountain slopes”.
(a) The reference is to the conquest of Mecca when Prophet Muhammad came with 10,000 of his devout and holy followers.
(b) Paran is the Biblical name of Mecca.
(c) Myriad of holy ones means a very vast number of his followers.
Song of Songs 5:10-11:- Prophet Solomon says: – “My lover is radiant and ruddy, outstanding among ten thousand. His head is purest gold; his hair is wavy and black as a raven.”
(a) Muhammad’s complexion was radiant and ruddy due to outdoor exposure and heat. His hair was black and wavy.
(b) Figure 10,000 again refers to the conquest of Mecca by Muhammad by about 10,000 of his devout and holy follows. He was outstanding amongst them.
Isaiah 29:12:- “Or if you give the scroll to someone who can not read, and says, “Read this, please.” He will answer, “I don’t know how to read.”
Explanation:- This is exactly what took place in the cave of Hira when Angel Gabriel first came to Muhammad and asked him to recite the very first five verses of Holy Quran Surah Alaq 96:1-5. and Muhammad P.B.U.H. replied, “I don’t know how to read.”
Isaiah 42:4:- “He will not falter or will be discouraged till he establishes justice on earth.”
𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐡𝐞𝐜𝐲 𝐢𝐧 𝐈𝐬𝐚𝐢𝐚𝐡 𝟒𝟐 𝐅𝐨𝐫𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐥𝐥𝐬 𝐏𝐫𝐨𝐩𝐡𝐞𝐭 𝐌𝐮𝐡𝐚𝐦𝐦𝐞𝐝
Muhammad did not falter in his mission. He pursued his mission against all odds and persecutions.
Once when Muhammad was asked by his uncle Abu Talib to stop preaching Islam he replied:”O my uncle! By God, if they put the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left on condition that I abandon this course, until God has made me victorious, or I perish therein, I would not abandon it.”
Isaiah 60:3-4: – “Nations will come to your light, and kings to the brightness of your dawn. Lift up your eyes and look about you. All assemble and come to you, your sons come from afar, and your daughters are carried on the arm.”
(a) Nations and Kingdoms will receive the message of the Quran. Then lift your eyes and see that for example, many kings during the time of the Prophet received the message of Islam
(b) Muslims from the world over-kings, high and low all gather at Masjid al-Haram at Mecca all around the year to pay homage.
Deuteronomy 18:15:- Moses said, “The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me (Moses) from among your own brothers, you must listen to him.”
Deuteronomy 18: 18-19:- The Lord said to Moses:-l (God) will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their brothers; I will put MY (God’s) words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I (God) command him “If anyone does not listen to MY words that the prophet speaks in MY name, I myself will call him to account.”
Note:” From Among Their Brothers” Explanation:-
(a) Meaning of brothers-Abraham had two sons, Ishmael and his 14 years junior Isaac. Their descendants were therefore cousin brethren to each other. This prophecy addresses Moses that a prophet will also come from the progeny of Ishmael. Hence the use of the word brothers.
(b) Christians try to suggest that this prophecy is for the coming of Jesus. This is wrong. It is neither for Jesus nor for any of over two dozen prophets who came between Moses and Jesus because they all were from the progeny of Isaac. Ishmael was brother to Isaac and Muhammad came from the progeny of Ishmael. Therefore this verse is pointing toward Muhammad.
(c) You must listen to him i.e. follow him.
(d) I (God) will put my words in his mouth and he will tell them everything I (God) command. Quran was revealed by ALLAH to Muhammad over a period of 23 years. The very first line of all revealed Surah’s begin with- “In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, and Most Merciful.”
Unlike Bible verses, which are “According to Matthew, or Mark, or Luke or John”, etc. In Quran Allah is speaking in first person to his creation-mankind. It is in the name of Allah and no one else.
(e) I (God) MYSELF will call him to account-Each individual will be accountable to ALLAH for his belief and his deeds on the Day of Judgment.
(f) Christians try to project the names of other prophets i.e. John the Baptist or Jesus but the argument fails because they all i.e. Moses, John the Baptist and Jesus were from the line of Isaac. Only Muhammad was from the progeny of Ishmael who was the brother to Isaac.
(g) A Prophet like you -i.e. like Moses, and Moses was like Muhammad. Because:-
(I) Both were born in a normal manner.
(ii) Both were married and they raised a family.
(iii) Both became prophets.
(iv) Both received Divine Revelations-Torah & Quran respectively,
(v) Both were leaders and rulers of their followers,
(vi) Both died a natural death.
(h) On the contrary:-
(I) Jesus was not born normally
(ii) Nor his end was in a normal way.
Therefore Moses is not like Jesus, but Moses is very much like Muhammad. Therefore Deuteronomy 18:15 and18:18-19 refer much to Muhammad.
Isaiah 9:6-7:- Prophet Isaiah says: “For us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders and he would be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, and Prince of Peace. Of the increase of his government and peace, there will be no end
(a) Muhammad P.B.U.H. had the burden of running the government at Medina.
(b) Muhammad P.B.U.H. is called a wonderful counselor and a Prince of Peace. Word Islam means ‘peace’ as well as “surrender”.
(c) Other words are superfluous In Bible 80% of words and passages are continuously added by human authors to mislead a reader towards a different angel. A mere verbosity is there in the Bible.
Isaiah 2l: 7:- “When he sees chariots with teams of horses, riders on donkeys, or riders on camels. Let him be alert, fully alert.”
(a) The rider upon the donkey is Jesus when he entered Jerusalem.
(b) The rider upon the camel is Muhammad with his companions on horses and camels on his triumphant entry into Mecca.
Isaiah 42:1:- “Here is MY servant, whom I uphold, MY chosen one in whom I delight. I will put My spirit on him and he will bring justice to the nations.”
(a) The message of the Quran and Islam is exactly the same i.e. to bring justice to
(b) ALLAH is well pleased with Muhammad and he speaks only what is revealed to him.
Isaiah 42:11:- “Let the deserts and its towns raise their voices. Let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice. Let the people of Sela (Siloh=lslam) sing for joy. Let them shout (call to prayer=Azan) from the mountaintops. Let them give glory to the Lord and proclaim his praise (Salah=Namaz) in the islands.”
Kedar was the second son of Ishmael who had settled in the valley of Mecca. From Kedar, his descendants began to be called Quraish and Prophet Muhammad came from the Quraish tribe. He brought justice to all. This time ALLAH conferred prophethood on Muhammad who was an Arab.
Let the followers of Islam be happy at the arrival of Muhammad. “Let them give a call (Azan) for prayer from the mountain tops and proclaim the Majesty and Glory of Allah.
Matthew 21:42-44: – Jesus said to them, – “Have you never read in the Scriptures: The stone which the builders rejected has become the capstone (cornerstone). The Lord has done this, and it is marvelous in our eyes. Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit. He who falls on this stone will be broken to pieces, but he on whom it falls will be crushed.”
(a) Arabs were rejected with prophethood for a long time in history. This time they because all too important and Muhammad was appointed by Almighty Allah as a prophet. This was also according to Biblical prophecies and revelations.
The Royal authority and scepter (the Royal staff) were taken away from the Israelites and handed over to the Arab preacher. Muhammad did not speak in his own name. He spoke. “In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.” He formed a universal religion meant for the entire humanity.
He removed all sorts of idol worship and false godhood from Khana-e-Kaaba. He rejected the trinity. Instead, he brought pure monotheism (as done by Jesus) which is Islam i.e. submission to Allah materially and spiritually.
(b) Islam is metaphorically spoken as a “capstone”
Isaiah 40:3:4:- “A voice of one calling in the desert prepare the way for the Lord; make straight in the wilderness a highway for our God. Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain. And the glory of the Lord will be revealed and all mankind together will see it. For the mouth of the Lord has spoken.”
Prophet Isaiah is prophesizing about Muhammad who would rise and call into the desert and valleys of Arabia. His message will be all-powerful and all-pervading
to all mankind of the world, All proud and rough people would become noble and God-fearing and all mankind will see it together during Hajj. Prince and pauper will pray together shoulder to shoulder.
Mark 1:2-3:- According to Gospel of Mark it says: “It is written in Isaiah (the prophet): I will send my messenger ahead of you, who will prepare your way.” “A voice of one calling in the desert. Prepare the way for the Lord, make straight paths for him.”
(a) Here the Command of God is to all Prophets who were asked to prepare the way for the coming of the Last Prophet Muhammad P.B.U.H.
(b) We know Jerusalem is not a desert. John the Baptist and Jesus both were born in the same year. They were contemporaries. The stay of first was 31 years and of the other was 33 years.
(c) A voice is calling in the desert of Arabia applies to Muhammad and not to any other Prophet. And Muhammad prayed all his life- “Show me the straight way.” Surah Fatiha 1:6.
Mark 1:7-8:- Mark writes about a confession that was made by John the Baptist- And this was his message- “After me will come one more powerful than 1, the thongs (strips) of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop down and untie. I baptize you with water, but he will baptize you with holy spirit.”
(a) Here John the Baptist is talking about the coming of a prophet somewhere in the future. Some interpret it to mean that it refers to Jesus. No, this is wrong, because Jesus was already there. John the Baptist and Jesus were contemporaries. In fact, John the Baptist is talking about the coming of the Last Prophet Muhammad.
(b) John the Baptist used to baptize with water but Muhammad will baptize you with the color of ALLAH.
Surah Al-Baqarah 2:138 “And who can give a better hue (color) than Allah.”
Deuteronomy 32:21:- “They made ME (God) jealous by what is ‘no god’ (false gods) and angered ME (God) with their worthless idols. I will make them envious by those who are not a people. I will make them angry (by a notion) that has no understanding.”
(a) “Angered ME with their worthless idols.” 360 idols in Khana-e-Kaaba before the advent of Islam angered God.
(b) “Who are not a people.” “That has no understanding.” The reference is to the people of Arabia who were backward before the advent of Islam.
(c) Will make them envious and angry by those who are not a people because they will be overtaken by Islam, which will spread from Arabia.
Song of Songs 5:16:- Prophet Solomon says- “His (Muhammad’s) mouth is sweetness itself. He is altogether lovely.”
In Hebrew language word “Altogether lovely” is termed Muhammad in which is the plural of Muhammad. Muhammad is known in heaven as Ahmed. His mouth is sweetness itself. Muhammad was sweet-mouthed.
Isaiah 21:13-17:- “A prophecy against Arabia: You caravans of Dedanites, who camp in the thickets of Arabia, bring water for the thirsty; you, who live in Tema, bring food for the fugitives. They flee from the sword, from the drawn sword, from the bent bow, and from the heat of battle.
This is what the Lord says to me: “Within one year, as a servant bound by contract would count it, all the splendor of Kedar will come to an end. The survivors of the archers, the warriors of Kedar, will be few. ” The LORD, the God of Israel, has spoken.”
(a) Muslim believers had to flee from Mecca to Medina due to continuous persecution under the swords and bows of Quraish.
(b) Quraish tribe was the descendant of Kedar. Kedar was the second son of prophet Ismail who had settled in the hills of Paran, Paran was the biblical name of Mecca.
(c) Pomp of Kedar will come to an end. Holy Prophet conquered Mecca (Kedar) with 10,000 of his devoted followers. Quraish in the valley of Mecca was subdued.
Isaiah 60:11:- “Your gates will always stand open, they will never be shut, day or night, so that men may brine, you the wealth of the nations-their kings led in triumphal procession.”
Gates of Glorious Khana-e-Kaaba at Mecca always remain open 24 hours a day throughout the year, yeas after years for the last 1420 years. Rulers and their men from various nations continuously enter it day and night. People bring goods for trading as well. Circum-ambulance is done around Khanae-Kaaba as a mark of respect in a grand honored procession called Tawaaf.
Haggai 2:6-7:- “This is what the Lord Almighty says: In a little while I will once more shake the heavens and the earth, the sea and the dry land. I will shake all nations, and the desired of all nations will come, and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord Almighty.”
(a) Muhammad is the desire of all nations because in the message of the Quran which he brought, lies the salvation of mankind.
(b) I will fill this House with Glory, is Khana-e- Kaaba at Mecca.
(c) When Haggai 2:6-7 is read with Malachi 3:1 and Deuteronomy 18; 15 and 18:18, and Isaiah 21:13-17 one is forced to conclude that all Biblical prophets were professing about the coming of Muhammad who is symbolically called as the Prince of Peace, the desire of all nations, the comforter, the counselor, the helper, the Paracletos, the Paraclete, the spirit of Truth, the Holy One, the Rider on the camel, the light, and the messenger etc.
Luke 24:49:- According to Gospel of Luke, Jesus says:-1 am going to send you what my father (God) has promised, but slay in the city (of Jerusalem) until you have been clothed with power from on high.”
(a) Jesus is saying that when he (Jesus) goes, he is going to send Prophet Muhammad whom God had promised to send.
(b) Until you have been clothed with power. Until you have received the powerful Quran.
(c) Stay in the city of Jerusalem and continue to pay tribute to Jerusalem until you have been commanded by God to face towards Khana-e-Kaaba at Mecca. (Ref. Quran Surah Baqarah 2:142-143). “The fools among the people will say-” What has turned them from the Kiblah to which they were used to.”
John 14:16:- Jesus says- “And I will ask the father, and he will give you another Counselor” (Prophet-Muhammad) to be with you forever.”
(a) Jesus knew, as much as all other previous prophets, that another Messenger was to come finally. He will be the last counselor till the Day of Judgment. He will be the seal of Prophets. Surah Al-Ahzab 33:40.
(b) In Holy Bible -New International Version, (as revised in August 1983) the word used for the coming prophet Muhammad is- Counselor. Many other Bibles have used words like a comforter, helper, advocate, counselor PARACLETE etc. The original word in
Greek Bible was PARACLETOS, which means the “Praised One” which means Ahmed. Ahmed is the heavenly name of Muhammad.
Douay-Rheims Bible John 14:16
”And I will ask the Father, and he shall give you another Paraclete, that he may abide with you for ever.”
John 14:25-26:- Jesus says- “All this I (Jesus) have spoken while still with you. But the Counselor the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you.”
(a) Word Holy Spirit is deliberately added later on by human authors to divert away the attention. Barnabas who remained with Jesus throughout has used the actual word which Jesus must have spoken i.e. “Ahmed”. This word is in the Gospel of Barnabas. (Ahmed is the heavenly name of Muhammad)
(b) In my name. These words are superfluous and are added unnecessarily by human authors to mislead the readers intentionally. The addition is evident and Bible is full of such additions. Sometimes they even contradict each other.
(c) When Muhammad will come he will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I (Jesus) have said to you.
And do not grieve the Holy Spirit of God, with whom you were sealed for the day of redemption
Muhammad was the seal of Prophet and the after Muhammad the chain of Prophet stopped. Muhammad also brings the total solution of salvation for mankind/ Redemption.
John 15:26-27:- Here Jesus says “When the Counselor comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the spirit of truth (i.e. Muhammad) who goes out from the Father, he will testify about me (i.e. Jesus). And you must also testify (that I was a prophet) for you have been with me from the beginning.”
He i.e. Muhammad will testify about me i.e. about Jesus that:-
(a) Jesus was miraculously born through a word” of ALLAH.
(b) Jesus was a prophet’. He was neither a son of God nor one of the Three.
(c) He did not die on the cross.
(d) He was not buried.
(e) Therefore his coming out of the grave does not arise.
(f) But he was raised alive to heaven by ALLAH.
(g) And he will come back and would die a natural death. (One birth and one death only.)
John 16:7:- Jesus says- “But I tell you the truth. It’s for your good that I am going away. Unless I go away, the Counselor (Ahmed) will not come to you but if I go, I will send him (Ahmed) to you. When he comes, he will convict the world of guilt in regard to sin and righteousness and judgment.”
(a) Mohammed will come after Jesus as the Last and the Final Messenger of God as the Seal of Prophets. Surah Al-Ahzab 33:40.
(b) World of guilt- the world that is full of evil and guilt.
(c) He will convict the world of guilt—in regard to sin and in regard to righteousness i.e. he will warn and enunciate right from ‘the wrong, and sin from the righteousness
John 16:12-11:- Jesus further said- “I have much more to say to you, more than you –cant now bear. But when he, the spirit of truth (Muhammad), comes, he will guide you into all truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. He will bring glory to me by taking from what is mine and making it known to you.”
Explanation:- (a) Spirit of Truth that is another prophet would come. He will be the embodiment of Truth i.e. Muhammad.
(b) When that prophet comes-he will guide you into all truth. Nothing will remain doubtful and confused in religion.
(c) He will not speak on his own authority, unlike, “according to Matthew”, “according to Mark”, “according to Luke'” or “according to John”. His words will not be “according to Muhammad”. Every word in Quran is from ALLAH. There is nothing in it from Muhammad. Quran is the Word of ALLAH.
(d) He will recite only that what he hears from Allah through revelations brought by Angel Gabriel. That is what Quran is- Allah’s words conveyed to Muhammad through Angel Gabriel.
(e) All surahs of Quran commence- “In the name of ALLAH, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.”‘
(f) He (Muhammad) will tell you what is to come i.e. about the end of world and universe, i.e. the Day of Judgment when all humans will come out from their graves to be present in front of Allah for judgment. Righteous will go to heaven and disbelievers to Hell. There will be complete Justice. No outside help will come.
(g) He (Muhammad) will bring glory to me (Jesus) i.e. he will announce the true and right place of prophet hood to Jesus against the false allegation against him that he is god. That will neither embarrass Jesus nor would it be derogatory to God.
Malachi 3:1:- “See, I will send my messenger, who will prepare the way before me. Then suddenly the Lord you are seeking will come to his temple; the messenger of the covenant, whom you desire, will come, says the Lord Almighty.”-
Up to Jesus, all Prophets came only from the progeny of Israel. Therefore, as usual, the Jews and the Christians were once expecting a prophet from the progeny of Israel. But that did not happen. This time ALLAH gave the prophethood to Muhammad who did not belong to the progeny of Israel but to the progeny of Prophet Ismail. This time it was different. Muhammad was an Arab. He came to clean up the Khana-e-Kaaba which had 360 idols. He was to prepare the way for mankind before the Day of Judgment. Muhammad was to abrogate all false religions and all false gods and was to show a straight way to reach God.
Isaiah 60:7:- “All Kedar’s flocks will be gathered to you, the rams of Nebaloth will serve you; they will be accepted as offerings on my altar and I (ALLAH) will adorn my glorious temple (Khana-e-Kaaba).”
Reference is to the animal sacrifice during Hajj
