JESUS' PROPHFCY ABOUT MUHAMMAD
"And when Jesus son of Mary said: 0 Children of Israel! Surely I am the apostle of Allah to you, verifying that which was (revealed) before me of the Torah, and giving the good tidings of an Apostle who will come after me, whose name is Ahmad... â€ Holy Qurâ€™an (61:6)
"Those who follow the Apostle - Prophet the Ummi whom they find ordained for them in the Torah and the Gospel, he enjoins them good and forbids them evil...â€ Holy Qurâ€™an (7:157)
The Gospel of Jesus (a.s.) brought into sharper focus the identity of the one who would fulfill the promise to make the line of Ishmael (a.s.) a great nation. In the Gospel of John - a New Testament book which is not the
Gospel of Jesus (a.s.) and which may be considered as representing only in general terms portions of Jesus' teaching - Jesus (a.s.) informs his close companions that his work among them was drawing to conclusion, but God would send someone else after a time to carry forward the prophetic movement. This someone, however, would be the last of the prophets.
The following passages of the New Testament lend further proof to the Prophethood of Muhammad (s.a.w ) :
"And this is the record of John (the Baptist) when the Jews sent priests and levites from Jerusalem to ask him, who art thou?
And he confessed, and denied not; but confessed lam not the Christ.
And they asked him, what then? Art thow Elias? And he saith lam not. Art thou THAT PR OPHET? And he answered, No.
And they asked him, and said unto him, why baptizest thou then, if thou be not that Christ, nor Elias, neither THAT PROPHET. â€
