Chapter 3: Prophecy 3
Ali: The third prophecy is from the book of Deuteronomy Chapter 33 verses1-2:
“And this is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death. And he said, The Lord came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; He shined forth from Mount Paran, and He came with ten thousand of saints: from His right hand went a fiery law for them.”1
Ali: Before we analyze the prophecy, let me inform you that Sinai is the mountain where Prophet Moses (a.s.) received the Ten Commandments. Seir is in Palestine, where Prophet Jesus (a.s.) preached his message and Paran is a mountain in Mecca. The cave of Hira is located on Mount Paran and mount Paran is also known as Jabal un Noor. Paran is the same place where Prophet Ishmael (a.s.) settled and got married according to Genesis 21:21. The coming of the Lord means coming of God’s Representatives. Now the prophet of God who came from Sinai was Prophet Moses (a.s.) and the one who rose from Seir is Prophet Jesus (a.s.). So who is the Prophet who shined forth from Mount Paran and came with ten thousands of saints and brought a fiery law for them?
John: But then the name of Muhammed is not mentioned in this prophecy?
Ali: Well dear brother how come you understand that Sinai refers to Prophet Moses (a.s.) Sier refers to Jesus Christ the Messiah (a.s.), but only when it comes to Paran you want the
name of the Prophet to be mentioned?
Ali: Therefore my dear brother, the Prophet of God who shone forth from Paran is none other than Prophet Muhammed (s.a.w.a.) and the fiery law that came from his right hand is the well-defined and complete legal system of Islam, which we call the Sharia.
