The modern opinion of the Judaism, Christianity and Islam is that they are different religions with entirely different beliefs. But, we need to ask ourselves how true is that? Do all three religions preach the existence of the same God or are they entirely different religions that are more likely to be at war than at peace with one another. There is a school of thought that suggests that Moses and Jesus prophesized the coming of Muhammad. The following article will explore whether that theory is truthful. This exploration will be carried by investigating the Old and New Testament and the lives and words of Moses and Jesus in comparison to Muhammad’s.
[This idea will be investigated within a few different entries this is the first, keep your eyes peeled for the rest :)]

Let’s start at the beginning with the Old Testament. God indicated that Abraham’s lineage would extend through Ishmael and Isaac. “…through Isaac shall your descendants be named. And I will make a nation of the son of the slave woman [Ishmael] also, because he is your offspring.” (Genesis 21:12-13)

Abraham was ordered to abandon Hagar, his slave wife and their newborn Ishmael in Paran the now referred to as Makkah.
“When the water in the skin was gone, she cast the child under one of the bushes. Then she went, and sat down over against him a good way off, about the distance of a bowshot, for she said, “let me not look upon the death of the child.” And she sat over against him, the child lifted up his voice and wept. And God heard the voice f the lad, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven, and said to her, “what troubles you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the lad where he is. Arise, lift up the lad, and hold him fast with your hand, for I will make him a great nation.” (Genesis 21:15-18)

“And God was with the lad [Ishmael], and he grew up; he lived in the wilderness, became an expert with the bow. He lived in the wilderness of Paran.” (Genesis 21:20)

“This is the blessing with which Moses the man of God blessed the children of Israel before his death. He said,
‘The LORD came from Sinai, and dawned from Se’ir upon us; he shone forth from the Mount of Paran, he came from the ten thousands of holy ones: from his right hand went a fiery law for them. Yea, he loved the people; all his saint are in thy hand: and they sat down at thy feet; every one shall receive of they words.'” (Deuteronomy 33:1-3)
– Mount Sinai was the setting of the coming of Moses’ revelation.
– Mount Se’ir is a range of moutains stretching south and west of the Dead Sea extending through Jerusalem and Betlehem, the birthplace of Jesus.
– Mount of Paran, is in reference to Muhammad as he was born in Paran (Makkah) during his lifetime he migrated to Yathrib (Madinah) and later returned to conquer the city followed by 10,000 of his companions.

“I (God) will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee (Moses), and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.” (Deuteronomy 18:18)
The verse above clearly states that the “prophet” will be from the Brethren of the Jews. Abraham had two children, Isaac and Ishmael, the Jews are the descendants of Isaac and the Arabs are of Ishmael. Thus, the brethren of the Jewish nation is none other that the Arabs. The Bible confirms this:
“…and he (Ismael) shall dwell in the presence of all his brethrens.” (Genesis 16:12)
“And he (Ishmael) died in the presence of his brethren.” (Genesis 25:17)

The verse concludes with God stating that this prophet will rely His words through His commands. The Qur’an incorporates a verse that states that Muhammad fulfils this prophecy:
 “Nor does he speak from [his own] inclination. It is not but a revelation revealed.” (Qur’an 53:3-4)
Many Christians believe that this prophecy refers to Jesus. So, as always let’s put the theory to the test and compare the three: Moses, Jesus and Muhammad may God’s mercy and blessings be upon them all.

1. Let’s start from birth, both Moses and Muhammad were conceived through natural means while, Jesus the son of Mary was conceived through a miracle as we all know she was a virgin. So, naturally that meant the Jesus only had a mother while Moses and Muhammad both had both, a mother and a father. As for the men themselves, both Muhammad and Moses got married and had children while Jesus never married and never had any children.

2. Both Moses and Muhammad were accepted and recognized by their people, while Jesus was rejected by his {“He (Jesus) came unto his own, but his own received him not.John 1:11}

3. Both Moses and Muhammad had political authority while Jesus did not {“Jesus said, “My kingdom is not of this world. If it were, my servants would fight to prevent my arrest by the Jewish leaders. But now my kingdom is from another place.” John 18:36}

4. Both Moses and Muhammad overcame their opponents, the Pharaoh drowned and Makkah was reclaimed and its inhabitants defeated, while the Christians believe that Jesus was crucified.

5. How about their death, Moses and Muhammad were both buried, while Jesus tomb is vacant. Moses and Muhammad are both not considered to be divine, while Christians believe that Jesus is. Moses and Muhammad both began their prophecy as the age of forty while Jesus’ began at thirty.

6. Finally, Muhammad and Moses were both not resurrected, while Christians believe that Jesus has already been resurrected once.

the Old or New Testament or an Entirely Different Book?



The world today holds an abundance of religions, varying on who they “worship”, what and who they look up to and idolize… Out of all of them, there are three that hold more attributes in common than the rest, the Abrahamic religions: Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Strictly speaking they all worship the same God, all three were introduced by men chosen by God; Moses, Jesus, and Muhammad peace be upon them all. So, the question comes down to this which one do we follow, which one do we choose. People today believe that these three religions are in conflict, however, the truth is that they all validate each other as both Torah and the Bible mention that Muhammad will come.

Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him (pbuh), is mentioned by name in the Song of Solomon chapter 5 verse 16: “Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem.”  Translated to “His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.” in King James Bible, English Revised Version and is present in many more (1). In the Hebrew language “im” is added for respect. As shown above “im” is added after the Prophet Muhammad’s (pbuh) name. The Prophet’s (pbuh) name has been translated to “altogether lovely”. In Arabic the name means the thanked one, the praised one or the one pleased with. Regardless, in the Old Testament in Hebrew, the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is still present (Rabbi reciting Song of Solomon 5:16). Another verse from the Torah (chapter 18 verse 18: Book of Deuteronomy) states that God said the following to Moses (pbuh) “I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and I will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is like Moses (pbuh):
Both had a father and a mother, while Jesus (pbuh) was born miraculously without any male intervention.
[Mathew 1:18 and Luke 1:35 and also Al-Qur’an 3:42-47]
Both were married and had children. Jesus (pbuh) according to the Bible did not marry nor have children.
Both died naturally, while Jesus (pbuh) was raised up to the heavens alive.  Al-Qur’an 4:157-158: “And [for] their saying, “Indeed, we have killed the Messiah, Jesus, the son of Mary, the messenger of Allah .” And they did not kill him, nor did they crucify him; but [another] was made to resemble him to them. And indeed, those who differ over it are in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it except the following of assumption. And they did not kill him, for certain”
Muhammad (pbuh) is from among the brethren of Moses (pbuh). Arabs are brethren of the Jews. As Abraham (pbuh) had two sons: Ishmail and Isaac peace be upon them both, the Arabs are the descendants of Ishmail (pbuh) and the Jews are the descendants of Isaac (pbuh).

FAMILY TREE {All Prophets}

In the Gospel, according to John (Chapters 14, 15, 16) Jesus spoke of the “Paraclete” or the “Comforter” who will come after Jesus, who will be sent by Father as another Paraclete, who will teach new ideas that the people surrounding Jesus could not sustain. While, the Paraclete is described as the spirit of truth (whose meaning resembles Muhammad’s title as “Al-Amin“, translated to “the trustworthy”), he is identified in one verse as the Holy Ghost (John 14:26). Also, the idea that the prophecy is in reference to the Holy Ghost is seemingly incorrect as the prophecy mentions that the “Comforter” will only come after Jesus (pbuh) is gone. While, the Holy Ghost was around during Jesus’s earthly life. The Dictionary of the Bible (Ed. J. Mackenzie) stated “Those items, it must be admitted do not give an entirely cohesive picture.”

There were Christians that knew that the Paraclete was a man not a spirit, but they were led astray by men that did not meet full description provided by the prophecy.  Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was the Paraclete, the Comforter, the Helper, the Trustworthy sent by God following the time of Jesus. He spoke of Jesus and his mother, Virgin Mary through what he was taught by God and his book the Qur’an. He preached a novel doctrine, he spoke of what he was revealed by means of the Holy Ghost, which the Qur’an identifies as the angel Gabriel, God’s most trusted and magnificent creation. He won over many believers through his well-preserved teachings. Muslims till today still pray, worship, fast and recite the Qur’an the exact way the Prophet (pbuh) did. These teachings will remain preserved as will the Holy book, a promise made by God to his loyal slaves. Muhammad peace be upon him was and is the last messenger of God. He was also the only messenger that was capable of uniting humanity under God and leading them down the straight path of truth. He spoke of many details of the past, future and science, as he was taught them through the Qur’an. Muhammad (pbuh) was an illiterate man that knew nothing of science or poetry, but through his revelations he recited the most intricate of poetry that spoke of details he personally had no knowledge of. The criterion given by Moses to distinguish between true and false prophets (Deuteronomy 18:22), described no one other than Muhammad (pbuh).

As for those that argue that John  the Baptist is the Prophet that the Torah and the New Testement speak of, I implore you to consider this: John 1:19-21
19 Now this was John’s testimony when the Jewish leaders[a] in Jerusalem sent priests and Levites to ask him who he was.
20 He did not fail to confess, but confessed freely, “I am not the Messiah.”
21 They asked him, “Then who are you? Are you Elijah?” He said, “I am not.” “Are you the Prophet?” He answered, “No.”

The Holy Qur’an was and is the last of God’s revelations and in His book he mentions that Muhammad (pbuh) was mentioned previously in both the Torah and Bible:
“Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find written [i.e., mentioned] in what they have of the Torah and the Gospel, who enjoins upon them what is right and forbids them what is wrong and makes lawful for them the good things and prohibits for them the evil and relieves them of their burden (2) and the shackles which were upon them (3). So they who have believed in him, honoured him, supported him and followed the light which was sent down with him – it is those who will be the successful.” (7:157)
