“And if you (Muhammad) are in doubt concerning that which We have revealed unto you, then ask those who read the Scripture (that was) before you. Verily the Truth has come unto you from your Lord, so do not be among those who waver.” (The noble Qur’an 10:94)
In the Bible we can find the following passages where Jesus (peace be upon him) predicts a great event:
John 14:16 “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you ANOTHER Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever”
John 16:7-14 “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; BUT if I depart, I will send him unto you. And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: Of sin, because they believe not on me; Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more; Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged. I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, [that] shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew [it] unto you.”
This prophecy clearly lays down that:
-The Comforter will come after the departure of Jesus.
-When the Comforter comes, he will reprove the world of sin, truth and justice.
-He will guide the world into all truth.
-he will not speak of himself.
-He will foretell things to come.
– That he will stay with you forever.
-He will glorify Jesus and clear him of all charges.
Now when we take this prophecy point by point, it is unmistakably proven that it applies to none else but the Prophet Muhammad. Let us see:
-Muhammed came after the departure of Jesus.
– Muhammed did guide us into the truth; to worship God Alone and submit yourself to the will of God, Muhammed DID change the people from paganism to monotheism !!
Allah Almighty says : “O mankind! The messenger (Muhammad) hath come unto you with the truth from your Lord. Therefore believe; (it is) better for you” (The noble Qur’an, 4:120)
-He didn’t speak of himself, the Quran is nothing but the word of God from beginning to end, not a single word even of the Prophet is to be found in it.
“Nor does he (Muhammad) speak of his own desire. It is but an Inspiration that is inspired [unto him]” (The noble Qur’an, 53:3-4)
-That he may abide with you forever.
“Muhammad is not the father of any man among you, but he is the messenger of Allah and the SEAL of the Prophets; and Allah is Aware of all things.” (The noble Qur’an, 33:40)
And “This day have I (God) perfected your religion for you (mankind) and completed My favor unto you, and have chosen for you as religion Islam(the submission).” (The noble Qur’an 5:3)
So the religion of Islam is the last message to mankind and it, as well as the Qur’an, will abide with us FOREVER.
The verse “that he may abide with you for ever”, it doesn’t mean that the comforter will live with us forever and he won’t die, because this is impossible, but Muhammad (peace be upon him) will abide and live with us through his teachings, and his quotations that recorded from him during his lifetime in a broad range of topics.
To this day, whenever a Muslims wishes to perform any action no matter how trivial, he does not advance a single step before first consulting Allah (in the Qur’an), and then prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) (in the Hadith).
It also means that he will stay with us forever that no one will come after him saying “I’m a prophet sent from God, so believe in me” because the message of the comforter will be the last message, that why Jesus said “he may abide with you FOR EVER”
-He will show you things to come.
Here is some of Muhammad’s prophecies:
1\Disappearance of trustworthiness, so much so that one would only be able to say: “I know a trustworthy person in such-and-such town.”
2\ The increase in killing, so that the one who kills does not know why he killed, and the one killed does not know why he was killed.
3\ The increase of the use of usury/interest so that no one will able to escape being tainted by it. This clearly the state of the world economy today.
5\The decrease of religious knowledge due to the disappearance of scholars.
6\The increase of sexual promiscuity, and new diseases that people had not heard of before spreading amongst them as a consequence of that. This is clear, with the arrival of AIDS, and other previously unheard of viruses.
7\Nakedness of women while still being dressed and people copulating like donkeys in public.
8\The drinking of wine becoming common.
9\ The worst and most ignorant will become leaders and they will be oppressors.
10\ A man will obey his wife and disobey his mother, and treat his friends kindly and shun his father.
-Muhammed did glorify Jesus .
-“Behold! the angels said “O Mary! Allah giveth thee glad tidings of a Word from Him: his name will be Christ (Maseeh) Jesus the son of Mary held in honor in this world and the Hereafter and of (the company of) those nearest to Allah.( Qur’an 3:45-51)
Muhammad (peace be upon him), as seen, did indeed fulfill this prophesy.
Some people will argue back by saying that the Spirit of truth is not Muhammed but it is the Holy Spirit?! Is that true?! well, let us look at it :
The comforter/the spirit of truth cannot be the Holy spirit because:
First: the Holy spirit (according to the Bible) was “with” them already (and even quite active) long before the coming of Jesus (peace be upon him) himself and then throughout his ministry. Read for example:
“Then he remembered the days of old, Moses, and his people, saying, Where is he that brought them up out of the sea with the shepherd of his flock? where is he that put his holy Spirit within him?” (Isaiah 63:11)
Did they or did they not already receive the Holy spirit?!
Was Jesus (peace be upon him) not still with them when they received the Holy spirit ?!
Was the Holy spirit not with Simeon, Mary, Elisabeth and Zacharias before the birth of Jesus (peace be upon him)?!
Was the Holy spirit not with Moses (peace be upon him) when he parted the seas?!
Second, Does the Holy Spirit “speak” ?! of course not, but the verse says that the comforter must hear then speak …
”he shall hear, [that] shall he speak” .. so this is obviously not the holy spirit .
There is a distinct difference between someone “inspiring” something and him “speaking” something.
Third, Jesus said ”another comforter” .. The word “another” is significant. if we assumed that the comforter is the holy spirit ?! why did Jesus say ANOTHER ?! how many Holy spirits are there?
Fourth, Jesus peace be upon will never refer to the holy spirit by using the pronoun “He”, but he will say “it”.
I bear witness that there’s no deity worthy to be worshipped but Allah, and Muhammed is his last messenger.
And Allah knows best …
