The word that they translate

00:00:06 --> 00:00:06

to comforter

00:00:07 --> 00:00:08

in the Greek and Aramaic,

00:00:09 --> 00:00:10

they say it is paraklutos.

00:00:11 --> 00:00:12

Paraklutos

00:00:13 --> 00:00:16

actually means an advocate or friend. But irrespective

00:00:16 --> 00:00:18

whether they translate as comforter or advocate or

00:00:18 --> 00:00:20

friend, all of these

00:00:20 --> 00:00:21

perfect

00:00:22 --> 00:00:22

prophet

00:00:23 --> 00:00:25

But if you go to the original manuscript,

00:00:26 --> 00:00:28

it is not periklitus, it is periklitus.

00:00:29 --> 00:00:29

And periklutos

00:00:30 --> 00:00:30

means

00:00:31 --> 00:00:31

the praiseworthy.

00:00:32 --> 00:00:33

One who praises.

00:00:34 --> 00:00:35

Translated into Arabic,

00:00:35 --> 00:00:38

it means Ahmed, Which was another name from

00:00:38 --> 00:00:38

Muhammad

00:00:39 --> 00:00:42

The original word is periclitus,

00:00:42 --> 00:00:45

which if you translate means the praiseworthy.

00:00:45 --> 00:00:48

The one who praises. The one who praises

00:00:48 --> 00:00:50

in Arabic, if you translate, means Ahmed, which

00:00:50 --> 00:00:53

was another name of Prophet Muhammad As is

00:00:53 --> 00:00:55

mentioned in the Quran, in Surasaf, chapter number

00:00:55 --> 00:00:58

61, verse number 6. Jesus Christ, peace be

00:00:58 --> 00:01:01

upon him, said, Job in Israel, oh children

00:01:01 --> 00:01:03

of Israel, I've been sent as a messenger

00:01:03 --> 00:01:05

to you, confirming the law that came before

00:01:05 --> 00:01:07

me, and giving glad tidings of a messenger

00:01:07 --> 00:01:09

to come whose name shall be Ahmed.

00:01:10 --> 00:01:11

So original word is which

00:01:12 --> 00:01:14

means Ahmed. But irrespective,

00:01:14 --> 00:01:15

whether it is

00:01:16 --> 00:01:17

or Whether it is

00:01:17 --> 00:01:20

the one who praises or advocate or friend,

00:01:20 --> 00:01:21

or comforter.

00:01:23 --> 00:01:27

All these meanings perfect perfectly the last and

00:01:27 --> 00:01:29

final messenger, prophet Muhammad

00:01:30 --> 00:01:32

Further if you go, it's mentioned in the

00:01:32 --> 00:01:35

gospel of John, chapter number 16, verse number

00:01:35 --> 00:01:36

12 to 14. Jesus

00:01:37 --> 00:01:38

says,

00:01:38 --> 00:01:40

I have many things to send to you,

00:01:41 --> 00:01:43

but he cannot bear them now. For he,

00:01:43 --> 00:01:45

when the spirit of truth shall come, he

00:01:45 --> 00:01:47

shall guide on to all truth. He shall

00:01:47 --> 00:01:49

not speak of himself. All that is here,

00:01:49 --> 00:01:50

shall he speak.

00:01:50 --> 00:01:52

He shall show you things to come. He

00:01:52 --> 00:01:53

shall glorify me.

00:01:54 --> 00:01:56

I repeat, Jesus Christ, peace be upon him,

00:01:56 --> 00:01:58

said in the gospel of John, chapter number

00:01:58 --> 00:02:01

16, verse number 12 to 14, Jesus Christ,

00:02:01 --> 00:02:03

peace be upon him, says, I have many

00:02:03 --> 00:02:05

things to say unto you, but he cannot

00:02:05 --> 00:02:08

bear them now, for he, when the spirit

00:02:08 --> 00:02:10

of truth shall come, he shall guide you

00:02:10 --> 00:02:11

onto all truth. He shall not speak of

00:02:11 --> 00:02:14

himself. All that hears shall speak. He shall

00:02:14 --> 00:02:17

glorify me. He, he, he, he, he.

00:02:18 --> 00:02:20

5, 6, he. Telling it's not the holy

00:02:20 --> 00:02:20

spirit.

00:02:22 --> 00:02:24

He shall show you things to come, he

00:02:24 --> 00:02:27

shall glorify me. The only messenger of God,

00:02:27 --> 00:02:30

the only human being who claimed to be

00:02:30 --> 00:02:32

messenger of God, after Jesus Christ peace be

00:02:32 --> 00:02:35

upon him, and glorified Jesus Christ peace be

00:02:35 --> 00:02:37

upon him, it is prophet Muhammad sallallahu sallam.

00:02:40 --> 00:02:42

He's even mentioned in the last revelation of

00:02:42 --> 00:02:44

Almighty God, the glorious Quran.

00:02:45 --> 00:02:47

Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam repeated the last

00:02:47 --> 00:02:49

revelation of Allah Subhanahu Wa Ta'ala, this is

00:02:49 --> 00:02:52

the glorious Quran and he's mentioned by name

00:02:52 --> 00:02:55

no less than 25 times in the Quran.

00:02:55 --> 00:02:59

Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him, testified and

00:02:59 --> 00:03:01

glorified Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, in

00:03:01 --> 00:03:04

the Quran by name no less than 25

00:03:04 --> 00:03:05

times.

00:03:06 --> 00:03:08

Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, is telling

00:03:08 --> 00:03:09

everyone,

00:03:09 --> 00:03:11

I have many things to say unto you,

00:03:11 --> 00:03:14

but he cannot bear them now. For he,

00:03:14 --> 00:03:16

when the spirit of truth shall come, he

00:03:16 --> 00:03:17

shall guide you unto all truth. He shall

00:03:17 --> 00:03:19

not speak of himself, all that hear shall

00:03:19 --> 00:03:20

speak.

00:03:20 --> 00:03:22

He shall show you things to come. He

00:03:22 --> 00:03:26

shall glorify me. This prophecy refers to no

00:03:26 --> 00:03:28

one but the last and final messenger,

00:03:29 --> 00:03:31

Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

00:03:31 --> 00:03:33

There are several other prophecies

00:03:34 --> 00:03:36

mentioned in the Old Testament, as well as

00:03:36 --> 00:03:38

the New Testament about Prophet Muhammad

00:03:39 --> 00:03:41

The criteria given by Jesus, peace be upon

00:03:41 --> 00:03:42

him,

00:03:42 --> 00:03:44

about knowing a true prophet,

00:03:44 --> 00:03:46

is mentioned in the gospel of Matthew, chapter

00:03:46 --> 00:03:49

number 7, verse number 16 to 20. Jesus

00:03:49 --> 00:03:51

Christ, peace be upon him, says, by their

00:03:51 --> 00:03:53

fruits, he shall know them.

00:03:54 --> 00:03:55

Do men

00:03:55 --> 00:03:56

gather grapes

00:03:57 --> 00:03:58

from thorns

00:03:59 --> 00:03:59

or

00:03:59 --> 00:04:01

figs from thistles?

00:04:02 --> 00:04:03

Every good tree

00:04:03 --> 00:04:05

shall bear good fruits.

00:04:06 --> 00:04:08

Every evil tree shall bear evil

00:04:09 --> 00:04:09

fruits.

00:04:10 --> 00:04:11

By their fruits,

00:04:12 --> 00:04:14

ye shall know them. Jesus Christ, peace be

00:04:14 --> 00:04:16

upon him, put a criteria. I would like

00:04:16 --> 00:04:17

to end my talk

00:04:18 --> 00:04:20

by analyzing the criteria Jesus Christ, peace be

00:04:20 --> 00:04:22

upon him, put for a true prophet. Gospel

00:04:22 --> 00:04:25

of Matthew, chapter number 7, verse number 16

00:04:25 --> 00:04:27

to 20. By their fruits, he shall know

00:04:27 --> 00:04:28

them.

00:04:28 --> 00:04:29

Do men gather

00:04:30 --> 00:04:31

grapes from thorns

00:04:32 --> 00:04:34

or figs from thistles?

00:04:35 --> 00:04:38

Every good tree shall bear good fruits, and

00:04:38 --> 00:04:41

every evil tree shall bear evil fruits. By

00:04:41 --> 00:04:43

their fruits, he shall know them.

00:04:43 --> 00:04:45

And we have several testimonies

00:04:46 --> 00:04:47

of non Muslims

00:04:48 --> 00:04:50

regarding the greatness of Prophet Muhammad

00:04:51 --> 00:04:53

regarding the testimony, not of Muslims,

00:04:57 --> 00:04:58
