Let's discuss the prophecy of masala Salaam, in the Jewish and the Christian scriptures, the Jewish and Christian scriptures, we know that the Bible is divided with Old Testament and the New Testament.
according to the Catholics, has 73 books. According to the Christians, they have thrown out seven books as apocrypha, doubtful from the Old Testament. So total Bible contains 66 books to the New Testament of the Catholics, and the Protestants contained 27 books. But the Old Testament of the Catholics contains 46 books of the petition. It contains 39 books. The Old Testament speaks about the stories about the prophets that came before Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. And the New Testament speaks about the life and the times of Jesus case, please pay one
will first discuss the process of masala Salam in the Jewish scriptures.
It's mentioned in the Old Testament.
In the book of Deuteronomy, chapter number 18, was number 18.
Almighty God says, I shall raise them for profit from among their brethren like unto thee, and I shall put my words into his mouth, and he shall speak all that I command him. This prophecy I shall read them for profit from among their brethren like unto thee like Moses, peace be upon him. So the Christian they say that this prophecy refers to no one but Prophet Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. And when we ask them, why does it refer to Jesus guest peace be upon him? They tell us because the prophecy says, the prophet to come should be like Moses, peace be upon him, and Jesus Christ peace be upon him was like Moses, peace be upon him. And when we ask them, How are they alike? They tell
us, that Moses and Jesus peace be upon them, both of them are prophets of God. And both of them, would you that's why this prophecy is talking about Jesus cast peace be upon him. If these two are the only criteria, if these two are the only criteria for the fulfillment of the prophecy, that he should be a Jew, and he should be a prophet of God, then all the prophets mentioned in the Bible, after Moses, peace be upon him fulfill this prophecy. For example, Prophet Solomon, Ezekiel, Isaiah, Daniel, Hosea, Joel, john the baptist, peace be upon them all. All of them were prophets of God, and all of them, would you all of them fulfill the prophecy? If we analyze, we come to know that this
prophecy befits no one better than the last and final messenger prophet masala Salah. Let's analyze what does a prophecy the prophecy says, I shall read them a profit from among their brethren like unto thee, like unto Moses, peace be upon him, if we analyze Moses and Muhammad, peace be upon them, both of them were born naturally. But Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, he was not born naturally, he was born without any male intervention. And this is mentioned in the Quran in surah imraan, chapter number three, verse number 45, to 47, and is also mentioned in the Bible in the Gospel of Matthew chapter number one, verse number 18. And the Gospel of Luke chapter number one was number 35. That
he was born without animal intervention, he was born miraculously. Therefore, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is like Prophet Moses, peace be upon him. And Prophet Jesus is unlike Prophet Moses, peace be upon them. Further, if you analyze, Prophet Mohammed and Prophet Moses, peace be upon them. Both of them were married, and they had children, but according to the Bible, Jesus Christ, peace be upon him he was not married, and had no children. So Jesus is unlike Moses, and Mama is like Moses, peace be upon them all.
Further if we analyze, Prophet Moses and Prophet Muhammad peace be upon them, both of them, they died a natural death.
But Prophet Jesus Christ peace be upon him, he did not have a natural death. According to the Quran, we believe that Jesus Christ peace be upon him, he was raised up alive surah Nyssa chapter number four was number 157 and 158. He did not die We believe. Even if you read the Christian Bible correctly, even upon the Christian Bible, we can prove he did not die. He was not crucified. But the Christians think that Jesus Christ peace be upon him, he died on the cross, he was crucified.
For more details regarding this topic referred to my video cassette, and the debate was Christ crucified. But even if you are gay for sake of argument, what they say is right.
We have to agree that Jesus Christ peace be upon him. He did not have an actual debt, offering the Christian reading of the Bible, which is not correct. They believe that on the cross, it was not unnatural that we believe we are raised up our life. Both ways. We agree he did not have a natural death. Therefore, Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. is not like
Moses peace be upon him. And Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is like Moses peace be upon him. Further if you analyze, Prophet Moses and Prophet Muhammad peace be upon them. Both of them brought new laws. But according to the Bible, Jesus Christ peace be upon him did not get a new law. It's mentioned the Gospel of Matthew, chapter number five was no 17 and 18, Jesus Christ peace be upon him says, Think not that I have come to destroy the law of the prophets, I have come not to destroy, but to fulfill.
Further if we analyze, Muhammad and Moses, peace be upon them, besides being prophets of God, they were even worldly kings, that means they could give the punishment of life and that to the person who deserved it. They could give the punishment of that, to the person reserved it where Prophet Jesus peace be upon him, he could not do that. And its mission, the gospel of john, Chapter 18, verse number 36, Jesus Christ peace be upon him says, My kingdom is not of this world.
And further if we analyze, Moses, and Muhammad peace be upon them,
both of them, their people, they accepted them as prophets of God, as a whole.
But Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. His people as a whole, did not accept him as a prophet.
It's mentioned the gospel of john chapter number one, verse number 11, that they all Foster. When we analyze, we come to know that Moses and Muhammad peace be upon them alike, and Moses and Jesus peace be upon them, they're unlikely. So this prophecy refers to no one, but Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. The prophecy further says, I shall reasonable profit from among thy brethren. And we know that the Arabs are the cousins of the Jews.
Moses was the Jew, masala Salam was an added, peace be upon them both. So Arabs and Jews are cousins.
Furthermore, the prophecy says, I shall raise them a profit from among their brethren like unto thee, and I shall put my words into his mouth, and he shares say all that I command him, we know that masala Salam used to get the vibe from Allah subhanaw taala and is to repeat verbatim what it was, he will trim it was as the words open to in his mouth, and if to repeat whatever Almighty God is to say.
To this prophecy refers to no one but the last and final messenger prophet masala. The next verse further says in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter number 18, verse number 19, it says, that if you hearkened not unto my words,
require of thee or I will take revenge. That means all those who do not hearken unto the words of this messenger to come Prophet, muscles, Allah, Almighty God will take revenge.
It's further mentioned the book of Isaiah, chapter number 29, was number 12. It says, that the book shall be given to him who is not learned, the book shall be given to a prophet who has not learned and when it is said, read this, I pray that he, he will say, I have not learned and we know that when the first one he came to Hamas, Allah salam, and make Archangel Gabriel said ekra Re, our beloved prophet Hassan replied, mana Bukhari, which means I have not learned it. This is the verbatim fulfillment of the prophecy of the book of Isaiah, chapter 29, verse number 12, that when the book is given to the person who's unlearned it we no prophet masilela sermon, unlettered, you
are the new me. And when it will be said to him, read, he will say, I have not learned and that's what he said, Man Ah, Bihari.
Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is also mentioned my name. In the Old Testament. It's mentioned in the Song of Solomon, chapter number five, verse number 16. It says, In Hebrew, hey cometa Kim, we call Li mama Jim. They do these Eri banner Jerusalem, which means his mouth is more sweet. He's altogether lovely. He's my beloved, he is my friend or daughters of Jerusalem. They have translated mama them as altogether lovely. But in the Semitic languages, like Arabic or Hebrew, they add him as a respect, like to allow God that follow him for respect to the name of Muhammad, the added mama dem.
For respect peace be upon him. So he's mentioned by name in the origin manuscript, but now when we read, it's translated to altogether lovely
