we saw that the prophets one after another prophesized and foretold about the final prophet "the law and the prophets until the time of john gave glad tidings of the kingdom of god".

they fulfilled their covenant that god took on them, and that is to believe and support the final prophet when he comes. {and (remember) when allâh took the covenant of the prophets, saying: "take whatever i gave you from the book and hikmah (understanding of the laws of allâh, etc.), and afterwards there will come to you a messenger (muhammad) confirming what is with you; you must, then, believe in him and help him." allâh said: "do you agree (to it) and will you take up my covenant (which i conclude with you)?" they said: "we agree." he said: "then bear witness; and i am with you among the witnesses (for this)."} (al-emran: 81).

the prophets reported to their people the news of this prophet "all the prophets and the statute until john prophesized, and if you wanted to accept to there is elijah the proclaimed to come".

the holy bible (in spite of the alteration it is exposed to) preserved for us some of these prophecies about this great prophet, that he is the prophet who will fulfill god’s promise to abraham and his wife hagar with the blessing in her son ishmael, and he is the one "that nations submit to".

he is the prophet who was like moses (pbuh), whom moses had told his people, the children of israel. he is the prophet whose prophethood will glitter near the mountains of paran, and he will be from a nation that will practice the law of the kingdom of god, which will be taken away from the children of israel. "and it will be given to a nation that will work for its fruits", and that's because they "replaced me with another god, and they angered me with their fake worships, and i will also replace them with another nation, and with an illiterate nation that angered them".

therefore, the prophethood and the choice were transferred to the despised arab nation "the brick which the builders refused became the corner stone".

the gospels’ and the torah’s texts mentioned the name of the prophet and his characteristics, as jesus (pbuh) called him "the parakletos", which means ahmad, and the angels promised of him "and the submission is on earth, and ahmad to the people" (according to the translation of the previous priest abdul ahad dawood).

the scriptures also talked about the land in which he will immigrate to "revelation from the side of the arab land, in the wilderness of the arab land", and called on supporting and sympathizing with him "o you residents of the temaa land provide the fugitive with his bread".

it also talked about the victory of this prophet, that his religion will reach the whole world. he is the one that "his hand is on everyone, to him nations will submit, nations under you are falling, he shall judge among the heathen, he shall fill the places with the dead bodies; he shall wound the heads over many countries, and he shall not be tired or weak until he put the truth to the world.

he is the wrath that comes to the unbelievers, such as the jews whom john the baptist warned, saying: "o generation of vipers, who hath warned you to flee from the wrath to come? … he shall baptize you with the holy ghost, and with fire. whose fan is in his hand, and he will thoroughly purge his floor, and gather his wheat into the garner; but he will burn up the chaff with unquenchable fire.", and "whosoever shall fall upon that stone shall be broken; but on whomsoever it shall fall, it will grind him to powder."

we have seen also, that the prophets had mentioned that this coming prophet is the last and final prophet. that, his kingdom, meaning his statute, will last forever. "the lord of heavens establishes a kingdom that will never extinct … and it will stay forever", and "as for the upper saints they will take the kingdom, and they will keep the kingdom for eternity and forever". muhammad (pbuh) said, “a group of my followers will remain steady until god’s will comes.), and in muslim's narration: (until judgment day) 1, and that he is the one that jesus (pbuh) prophesized to his nation when he said: “he will give you another comforter to stay with you forever".

the message of this prophet is not exclusive of the arabs or the children of israel, instead it is for all nations, as, he "blames the world for a sin" and "to him nations will submit", and he is "the desire of all nations", the one "for all nations, states and tongues to worship".

moreover, he is the illiterate prophet whom the torah and the gospels described. "and i will put my words in his mouth", and he is the illiterate, who was prophesied with the prophethood in the cave of hiraa "and the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, read this, i pray thee: and he saith, i am not learned.".

he is the one who does not speak from his own desire "does speak not from himself, but all what he hears he speaks with", and he will deliver all his message, and death or murder will not stand against his mission "so he speaks to them with all what i command him with".

like moses (pbuh), he has a statute "and the isles shall wait for his law.", and his law is supported by strength "and from his right hand went a fiery law for them.” his law is comprehensive of all the aspects of life as he "teaches you everything", and "he guides you to all the truth", and with his appearance the law of moses will be abolished "the scepter shall not depart from judah, nor a lawgiver from between his feet, until shiloh come;"

he is the greatest being, while women did not give birth to someone such as john the baptist, but "notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he." (pbuh)

christopher davis, a professor of comparative religion, was right when he said, "indeed, all these prophecies with their meanings and descriptions does not match anyone except the arabian prophet muhammad (pbuh).

1 narrated by: al bukhari (6881), and by: muslim (1923).
