The Holy Bible contains many prophecies both in the Old and the New Testament about the coming of a great prophet of God. The coming of this Prophet is mentioned both directly and indirectly by Abraham(A.S), Moses (A.S), John (A.S) and Jesus (A.S) amongst others. To discuss all the related material in the Bible would be too lengthy and beyond the scope of this book.
This is a selection of only a few of those verses that are very clear and are supported by history for discussion. This selection is comprehensible not only to those who have an in-depth understanding of the Bible but also those who are reading the Bible for the first time.
It is expected that the material presented here will clearly and without any doubt show this Prophet, who was to come after Jesus is Muhammed bin Abdullah (S.A.W) the promised Prophet of God.
This book covers only 10 prophecies or references from the Holy Bible about Prophet Muhammed (s.a.w.a.) and his Pure Progeny (a.s.) who were sent as guides for all of humanity. It is written as a dialogue between a Christian and a Muslim. The aim is to understand each other and discuss our similarities in a brotherly manner. I have tried to use the suffixes used by the Muslims after the names of Allah, Prophets and holy men.
The word Allah (s.w.t) is the Arabic word for God.
1. ‘s.w.t’ that follows Allah stands for ‘Subhanahu wa ta’aala’ or ‘glorified and exalted be HE’
2. ‘s.a.w.a.’ that follows Prophet Muhammed stands for ‘Salallahu Alaihi wa Aalehi wa Sallam’ or ‘peace be upon him and his progeny’
3. ‘a.s.’ that follows the Prophets and the Progeny of the Holy Prophet stands for ‘Alaihis Salaam’ which means ‘Peace be upon him’
4. ‘s.a’ stands for ‘Salamun Alaiha’ which means
5. ‘Peace be upon her’
I have used the Quran translation by M.H. Shakir throughout the book.
