Bible Isaiah Prophecy of Prophet Muhammed (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)

Isaiah 42:1-20
(God is speaking, now notice how exact the description is of Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him). It fits like a glove, even more): Note: According to our Christian brothers they say that this is about Jesus Christ peace be upon him. This is not possible because this speaks of a prophet sent to Gentiles in Arabia! And Jesus wasnt sent to gentiles and most absolutely not in Arabia.

1 “Behold! My Servant whom I uphold,
My Elect One in whom My soul delights! 
I have put My Spirit upon Him; 
He will bring forth justice to the Gentiles. 

Mohammed brought justice to the gentiles (the Pagan Arabs at that time). He banned taking interest and the poor Arabs at that time were suffering from the interest inflicted upon them by the rich Arabs. Even once, a man whos money was taken away from him was asking around in Mecca for someone who could defend him and get him back his money which Abu Lahab took from him. The people told him that he should go see a guy named Mohammed. When he told the Prophet what had happened to him the Prophet immediately stormed to the hous of Abu Lahab and ordered him to give the man back his money and he did. Not only did he do that but also:

The Jews, in spite of their hostility to the Prophet (pbuh), were so impressed by his impartiallity and sense of justice that they used to bring their cases to him, and he decided them according to Jewish law. (Abu Dawud, Sunan Dawud) 

2 He will not cry out, nor raise His voice,
Nor cause His voice to be heard in the street. 

Abu Abdullah Al-Jadali reports that he asked Aishah about the Prophet’s manners. Her answer to him was: “He was never given to using vulgar language, and he would never deliberately do so. Nor would he raise his voice in the market place. He did not reply to a bad deed with a similarly bad one. Rather, he would forbear and forgive.” (Related by Ahmad, Al-Tirmidhi and Abu Dawood Al-Tayalisi)

Abdullah ibn Amr gives a similar report, stressing that the Prophet never used obscenities, whether by spontaneous reaction or deliberately. He then adds that the Prophet used to say: “Those of you who are best in manners are the best of you.” (Related by Al-Bukhai and Muslim)

3 A bruised reed He will not break, 
And smoking flax He will not quench; 
He will bring forth justice for truth. 
4 He will not fail nor be discouraged, 
Till He has established justice in the earth; 

Not only was Mohammed so persistent to establish Islam on earth and justice. He was even beaten severely and starved peace be upon him. For three years, almost all he had to eat were leaves and what would be snuck to him of meat from sympathizers. He was never discouraged. When beaten, and began to blead he would say:

During the Battle of Uhud, the Prophet’s incisor was broken, . His lower lip was ruptured, and he had a bleeding wound on his forehead. He was constantly drying up the blood to keep it from falling upon the ground, saying, “If any of this blood falls on the ground, Divine Punishment would descend upon them [the Quraysh].” The situation weighed on the Companions, and they implored, “Why do you not pray against them?” He replied, “I have not been sent to damn people. I have been sent as a caller and a mercy. O, God! Forgive my people for they know no better.”

When the Arab Pagans realized the threat Islam was turning into,they went to him and said that they will let him be King of the Arabian peninsula, give him all the money that he would be the richest Arab, and give him all the women he wants, all he had to do was stop calling people for Islam. What did he say? Did he hesitate?

"I sware by the name of Allah O uncle, that if they placed the sun in my right hand and the moon in my left, to force me to renounce my work, verily I would not desist thereform until Allah made manifest His cause, or I perished in the attempt." (Ibid) 

And the coastlands shall wait for His law.” 
The king of Yemmen at that time, converted to Islam secretely and was waiting for Islam to prevail.

5 Thus says God the LORD, 
Who created the heavens and stretched them out, 
Who spread forth the earth and that which comes from it, 
Who gives breath to the people on it, 
And spirit to those who walk on it: 
6 “ I, the LORD, have called You in righteousness, 
And will hold Your hand; 

We see this in Mohammeds trust in God. 

Abu Bakr was frightened when pursuers came close to the cavern in which he and Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) were hiding during their flight, but the Prophet (pbuh) heartened him, 

"Grieve not. Allah is with us." 

A guard was kept at the Prophet's house in Madinah because of the danger that surrounded him but he had it withdrawn when the Quranic verse was revealed: 

"Allah will protect you from the people" (translation of Qur'an 5:67). 

I will keep You and give You as a covenant to the people, 
As a light to the Gentiles, 
7 To open blind eyes, 

Any person who has the slightest idea of Islamic history knows that Mohammed did this in an undoubtful unquestionable way. The Arabs were desert nomads, the Persians passed them and didnt even bother conquering them. The Romans didnt bother conquering them also, they didnt even bother converting them to Christianity! They were in great darkness. They would go to war for the st**idest reason. One war lasted for fourty years, over what? Over a donkey. Can you imagine! Mohammed transfered this nation in less then 20 years to a nation that 100 years after his death would conquer half of the world and lead the world into the world of sciences and math.

To bring out prisoners from the prison, 
Those who sit in darkness from the prison house. 

Obviously the Arab Pagans who worshiped more than 300 Gods were prisoners of there sins and ignorance. But also, if we take the verse in a literal aspect, we find that it also fits Mohammed!

Abu Aziz, a witness who was a polytheist and POW during the Battle of Badr narrates, "They (the Muslims) ate bread and dates, and they would divide their food with me. They would prefer me to themselves, giving me the dates and eating the bread. I would return the dates to them, out of embarrasment of their actions, but they would insist that I eat them. 

And Mohammed freed hundreds of prisoners. Almost all prisoners that were taken.

So metaphorically it fits him and literally it also fits him.

8 I am the LORD, that is My name; 
And My glory I will not give to another, 
Nor My praise to carved images. 
9 Behold, the former things have come to pass, 
And new things I declare; 
Before they spring forth I tell you of them.” 

10 Sing to the LORD a new song, 
And His praise from the ends of the earth, 
You who go down to the sea, and all that is in it, 
You coastlands and you inhabitants of them!

Here we see that the Lord is going to sing a new song, meaning a new language, what else other than Arabic? Why song? Listen to someone reciting the Quran and you will know exactly why. You see, the Quran was a verbal revelation, it was no inspirational revelation like the Holly Bible. More explicitly, prophesies Isaiah "For with stammering lips, and another tongue, will he speak to this people" (Isaiah 28:11). This latter verse correctly describes the "stammering lips" of Prophet Muhammad reflecting the state of tension and concentration he went through at the time of revelation. Another related point is that the Qur'an was revealed in piece-meals over a span of twenty three years. It is interesting to compare this with Isaiah 28:10 whichspeaks of the same thing.

11 Let the wilderness and its cities lift up their voice,
The villages that Kedar inhabits. 

Who is Kedar? Kedar is Ishmaels son. Where did he inhabit? Arabia, specifcally Mecca. And the Muslims lifted up their voices in Mecca when it was finally surrendered to them and they performed the Adhan or the Muslim prayer call from the highest peaks of Mecca.

Let the inhabitants of Sela sing, 
Let them shout from the top of the mountains. 
12 Let them give glory to the LORD, 

The word Sela, can also mean rock. And if you observe the ritual of Muslims (especially during Hajj), you will see that cities (Makkah and Al-Madinah) lift up their voices and people shout and glorify Allah from top of mountains, especially Mt. Arafa. The rock is the rock that God sent to Adam from heaven, and it is located at the side of Kaba. As you know Muslim people make 7 tours around Kaba and kiss this rock while glorifying the Lord. 

And declare His praise in the coastlands. 
13 The LORD shall go forth like a mighty man; 
He shall stir up His zeal like a man of war. 
He shall cry out, yes, shout aloud; 
He shall prevail against His enemies. 

As we all know Mohammed prevailed against his enemies.

14 “ I have held My peace a long time, 
I have been still and restrained Myself. 
Now I will cry like a woman in labor, 
I will pant and gasp at once. 
15 I will lay waste the mountains and hills, 
And dry up all their vegetation; 
I will make the rivers coastlands, 
And I will dry up the pools. 

Here God is talking about the deserts of Arabia. Mountains and hills of sand are not steady, they diminish with winds and others appear. We have also come to know that thousands of years ago, rivers did exist in Arabia, but now they dont.

16 I will bring the blind by a way they did not know; 
I will lead them in paths they have not known. 
I will make darkness light before them, 
And crooked places straight. 
These things I will do for them, 
And not forsake them. 

As said above. God will make darkness light for them (the gentiles, the Arab pagans). They never had a prophet sent to them. They were lost. They used to kill baby girls, drink alcohol, gamble, they were drowning in ignorance.
After Islam they engtered the world of sciences, maths, etc and they made the worlds greatest civilisation.

17 They shall be turned back, 
They shall be greatly ashamed, 
Who trust in carved images, 
Who say to the molded images, 

‘ You are our gods.’ 

Who else is this other than the Pagan Arabs who worshiped idols and used to say to them "you are our gods"! And they were turned back every time they tried invading Mohammed and they were defeated and were shamed in front of all the Arabs (the Quraish tribe). A great example of this is the battle of Badr which was the first battle between the Pagans and the Muslims. The pagans were thousands and the Muslims were almost 300 give or take and the Muslims defeated the Pagans! Can you imagine the shame one would endure if he has an army of thousands being defeated by 300? I dont have to describe it, its common sence. And they were shamed. They thought that now all the Arabs would mock them and there bussiness would be ruined. It was the first time in the history of the Quraysh tribe that they were defeated.

Listen to what the Roman Emperor Heraclius says in a conversation with Abu Sufian (the leader of the Arab Pagans who fought and hated Mohammed) keep in mind Heraclius was a Christian:

"Heraclius called them in the court and he had all the senior Roman dignitaries around him. He called for his translator who, translating Heraclius’ question said to them, “Who amongst you is closely related to that man who claims to be a Prophet?” Abu Sufyan replied, “I am the nearest relative (amongst the group) to him.” 

Heraclius said, “Bring him (Abu Sufyan) close to me and make his companions stay behind him.” Abu Sufyan added, “Heraclius told his translator to tell my companions that he wanted to put some questions to me regarding that man (The Prophet) and that if I told a lie they (my companions) should contradict me.” Abu Sufyan added, “By Allah! Had I not been afraid of my companions labeling me a liar, I would not have spoken the truth about the Prophet. 

The first question Heraclius asked me about was: “What is his family status among you?” I replied, “He belongs to a good (noble) family amongst us.” Heraclius further asked, “Has anybody else amongst you ever claimed the same (i.e., to be a Prophet) before him?” I replied, “No.” He said, “Was anybody amongst his ancestors a king?” I replied, “No.” Heraclius asked, “Do the nobles or the poor follow him?” I replied, “It is the poor who follow him.” He said, “Are his followers increasing or decreasing (day by day)?” I replied, “They are increasing.” He then asked, “Does anybody amongst those who embrace his religion become displeased and renounce the religion afterwards?” I replied, “No.” Heraclius said, “Have you ever accused him of telling lies before his claim (to be a Prophet)? I replied, “No.” Heraclius said, “Does he break his promises?” I replied, “No. We are in a truce with him but we do not know what he will do in it.” I could not find opportunity to say anything against him except that. Heraclius asked, “Have you ever had a war with him?” I replied, “Yes.” Then he said, “What were the outcome of the battles?” I replied, “Sometimes he was victorious and sometimes we.” Heraclius said, “What does he order you to do?” I said, “He tells us to worship Allah and Allah alone and not to worship anything along with Him, and to renounce all that our ancestors had said. He orders us to pray, to be chaste and to keep good relations with our kith and kin.”

After this conversation it is reported that Heraclius said: 

“I asked you about his family and your reply was that he belonged to a very noble family. In fact, all the Apostles come from noble families amongst their respective peoples. I questioned you whether anybody amongst you ever claimed such a thing, your reply was in the negative. If your reply had been in the affirmative, I would have thought that this man was following the previous man’s statement. Then I asked you whether anyone of his ancestors was a king. Your reply was in the negative, and if it had been in the affirmative, I would have thought that this man wanted to take back his ancestral kingdom. I further asked whether he was ever accused of telling lies before he said what he said, and your reply was in the negative. So I wondered how a person who does not tell a lie about others could ever tell a lie about God. I then asked you whether the rich people followed him or the poor. You replied that it was the poor who followed him. And in fact all the Apostles have been followed by the poor in the beginning. Then I asked you whether his followers were increasing or decreasing. You replied that they were increasing, and in fact this is the way of true faith, till it is complete in all respects. I further asked whether there was anybody, who, after embracing his religion, became displeased and discarded his religion. Your reply was in the negative, and in fact this is (the sign of) true faith, when its light enters the hearts and mixes with them completely. I asked you whether he had ever betrayed. You replied in the negative and likewise Apostles never betray. Then I asked you what he ordered you to do. You replied that he ordered you to worship Allah and Allah alone and not to worship anything along with Him and forbade you to worship idols and ordered you to pray, to speak truth and to be chaste.

If what you have said is true, he will very soon occupy this place underneath my feet and I knew it (from the scriptures) that he was going to appear but I did not know that he would be from you, and if I could reach him definitely, I would go immediately to meet him and if I were with him, I would certainly wash his feet.” "

In end, please tell me, if Prophet Mohammed (peace be upon him)was no prophet how could he have reacted this way when:

Anas ibn Malik, the Prophet’s servant reports: “I was once walking with God’s Messenger, and he was wearing a thick robe made in Najran which had rough edges. A Bedouin caught up with him and strongly pulled him by his robe. I could see the side of the Prophet’s neck with a clear mark made by the edge of his robe as a result of the Bedouin’s pull. He then said to him: ‘Muhammad! Give an order for me to be given something of the money God has given you.’ The Prophet turned to him, smiled and gave instructions for a payment to be made to him.” (Related by Al-Bukhari, Muslim, Ahmad and Al-Baghawi).

In conclusion, I quote George Barnardshaw when speaking about Mohammed:

"He must be called the Savior of Humanity. I believe that if a man like him were to assume the dictatorship of the modern world, he would succeed in solving its problems in a way that would bring it much needed peace and happiness."
