The Prophecies of Allah's Messenger, Muhammad (pbuh) in the Gospels

 

1. The Gospel of John, 16: 4-11, it states that Jesus (pbuh) said,

 

But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?

   But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.

   Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter (the Paraclete) will not come unto you…

 

This is from the London edition 1821, 1831, 1844.

 

2. Also, in the Gospel of John, it states that the Messiah, Jesus, son of Mary, said,

 

The son of man will come and the Paraclete (Comforter) after him will come to you with secret knowledge and explain everything to you. He will testify to me as I testify to him.

 

It is clear from all we have quoted that the Gospel of John announces that a messenger will come after Jesus, son of Mary (pbuh) in the statement, "It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter (the Paraclete) will not come unto you."

    

And also, "The son of man will come and the Paraclete (Comforter) after him will come."

    

The word,"farqaleet," means: he who is greatly praised. This is in the Greek language, and it is the same as the meaning of Ahmad, as Dr. Carlo Delino, who has a Ph.D. in Ancient Greek, has said.

    

Others have said that the word, "farqaleet," in the Hebrew dictionary means praise, and the two names, Ahmad and Muhammad, are derived from it, and these are both true of the Messenger of Allah (pbuh).

    

Ahmad and Muhammad are two of the names of Allah's Messenger (pbuh).

    

The Messenger of Allah (pbuh) is praised on the earth and praised in Heaven, and Allah (Mighty & Majestic) has granted him the praiseworthy station in the Hereafter.

 

3. In the Gospel of John, 16: 12-14, it is stated that, after the good news of the Paraclete who will come after him, Jesus, son of Mary, described him, saying,

 

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.

 

All of the characteristics mentioned in the Gospel of John apply to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). For he (pbuh):

 

- Reproaches those who do not believe in the message of Jesus (pbuh) for their error

- Guides everyone to all that is true, "…he will guide you into all truth…"

- He speaks not of his own accord, but rather that which his Lord (Mighty & Majestic) has revealed to him, "…for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak …"

-He brings news of the Unseen, things that had not been discovered until the modern age, "…and he will shew you things to come."

-He glorifies Jesus, son of Mary (pbuh), for Allah Almighty sent down upon His prophet, Muhammad (pbuh) His Saying (Mighty & Majestic),

 

{(Remember) when the angels said, "Oh Mary! Verily, Allah gives you the glad tidings of a Word from Him, his name will be the Messiah Jesus, the son of Mary, held in honor in this world and in the Hereafter, and will be one of those who are near to Allah."}

[Aal-`Imran 3: 45]

 

4.In the Gospel of Matthew 21: 42-44, it states that Jesus, son of Mary (pbuh), was informed of the nation of this awaited prophet, saying,

 

Jesus saith unto them, Did ye never read in the scriptures, The stone which the builders rejected, the same is become the head of the corner: this is the Lord's doing, and it is marvelous in our eyes?

 Therefore say I unto you, The kingdom of God shall be taken from you, and given to a nation bringing forth the fruits thereof.

 And whosoever shall fall on this stone shall be broken: but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder.
