The Bible Prophecies Prophet Muhammed peace be upon him Prophethood

The Noble Quran has stated that Jews and Christians will find prophecy about prophet Muhammed in the Bible despite trying to deny it and corrupt it.

“˹They are˺ the ones who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whose description they find in their Torah and the Gospel.1 He commands them to do good and forbids them from evil, permits for them what is lawful and forbids to them what is impure, and relieves them from their burdens and the shackles that bound them. ˹Only˺ those who believe in him, honour and support him, and follow the light sent down to him will be successful.” 

Surah Al-A’raf = Chapter the Heights (7:157)

“And ˹remember˺ when Jesus, son of Mary, said, “O children of Israel! I am truly Allah’s messenger to you, confirming the Torah which came before me, and giving good news of a messenger after me whose name will be Aḥmad.”1 Yet when the Prophet came to them with clear proofs, they said, “This is pure magic.” 

Surah As-Saf= Chapter the ranks (61:6) 

Isaiah 42:11

      New International Version

   “11 Let the wilderness and its towns raise their voices;
    let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice.
    Let the people of Sela sing for joy;
    let them shout from the mountaintops.”

Historical Facts:

Sela (Arabic: سلع‎) is a mountain in Medina in modern Saudi Arabia.

Mount Sela in the “District of the Seven Mosques” in the city of Medina Municipality in Saudi Arabia. Sela means “sliced” because the mountain looks as if it is sliced several times.[1][2]

The Islamic prophet Muhammad in the Battle of the Trench prayed to God for victory on Mount Sela. Mount Sela was mentioned in several Hadith of the stories of Muhammad such as The Prayer for Rain, The forgiveness of Ka’ba . Malik.[3][4][5]

Sela is mentioned by Al-Hamdani in his book Geography of Arabian Peninsula as part of Medina city in his time 150 years after Muhammad.[6][7] His name and the name of his companions Umar and Ali are inscribed on a stone on top of the mountain.[8][9][10][11]

Sela is said to be mentioned in the bible, which may also refer to the Prophet of Islam:

11 Let the wilderness and its towns raise their voices.

let the settlements where Kedar lives rejoice.

Let the people of Sela sing for joy.

let them shout from the mountaintops.

12 Let them give glory to the Lord

and proclaim his praise in the islands.

13 The Lord will march out like a champion,

like a warrior he will stir up his zeal.

with a shout he will raise the battle cry

and will triumph over his enemies.

Muslims say that Jews were living in Medina near Sela Mountain because they read this prophecy and they knew that a prophet was coming. That is why whenever they fought with Banu Qurayza, they used to say our time is near the prophet is coming, he will be fighting with us against you.

However, most Christians and Jews consider Sela in Isaiah 42 to be a reference to Sela in Edon, modern day Jordan [12]

Christians claim that the word is Adonai (Jewish God). If they assume that this is the prophecy of Muhammad, then this will make him God. In reply Muslim Scholars respond to this by saying that the word Adonai means "Lord" not only means "God" so the chapter predicts about warrior and this can be only on the Prophet Muhammad
