    CHAPTER 5

     

    Fulfilled Prophecies

     

    And he will
    show you things to come.

     

    (HOLY BIBLE) John 16: 13

     

    REFUGEE: ONLY FOR A WHILE

     

    The Christians put great
    weight on the fulfilment of prophecies. Muhummed (pbuh) fulfilled many
    prophecies of the Old
    1 and the New Testaments. To
    them, the prediction of events is considered to be the function of true
    prophecy — true prophethood.

    The Prophet of Islam uttered
    many prophecies which are recorded for posterity in the Holy Qur'an.
    Here are a few taken at random.

    1. Verily. He Who (God Almighty) ordained the Qur'an for thee, (He) will bring thee back to the Place of Return...
    (SURA QASAS) Holy Qur'an
    28: 85

    "Place of Return," is
    a title of the Holy City of Makkah. During the Hijrat (Migration) when
    the Holy Prophet was fleeing from Makkah to Madinah. It was a hopeless
    situation. Most of his followers had already migrated to Madinah. Now
    it was his turn. Together with Abu Bakr (as-Siddiq) he had reached a
    place called Juhfa, when this assurance was given by God that once
    again he will return to his birth-place Makkah, and so he did.

    He migrated as a refugee and
    God returns him as a conquerer, fulfilling yet another prophecy.
    2

    And he (Moses) said, the Lord came from
    Sinai, and rose from Seir unto them; he shined Forth from mount Paran
    (that is in Arabia), and
    he
    (Muhummed)
    came with Ten Thousand Saints:
    3from his
    right hand went a fiery law For them.

    (HOLY
    BIBLE) Deuteronomy 33:
    2

    You will finds some of these
    prophecies expounded in –
    <!a href="??">"What the Bible
    says about Muhummed (pbuh)"<!/a>.

    2.
    For a detailed exposition of this book read "Muhummed (pbuh) in the
    Bible" by Abdul-Ahad Dawud; former Bishop of Uramiah.

    3.
    The Holy Prophet was accompanied by 10 000 SAHABAS (companions –
    veritable saints) at the conquest of Makkah.

     

     

     

    SUPER-POWERS: IN CONFLICT

    2. The Roman Empire has been
    defeated

    In a land close by;

    But they, (even) after (this)
    Defeat of theirs, will soon be victorious —

    Within a few years. With God is

    the Decision,

    In the Past and in the Future:

    On that day shall the Believers
    rejoice —

    (SURA RUM) Holy
    Qur'an 30: 2-4


    The above prophecy was
    revealed to the Holy Prophet Muhummed (pbuh) in the year 615/16 of the
    Christian era. The Christian Empire of Rome had lost Jerusalem to the
    Persians, and Christianity had been humbled in the dust. In this
    holocaust between two of the Superpowers of the day, the Mushriks
    (polytheists) of Makkah derived vicarious pleasure in the discomfiture
    of the Romans by the pagan Persians.

    "THE PAGAN ARABS NATURALLY
    SIDED WITH THE PERSIANS IN THEIR DESTRUCTIVE ZEAL, AND THOUGHT THAT THE
    DESTRUCTION OF THE CHRISTIAN POWER OF ROME WOULD ALSO MEAN A SETBACK TO
    THE MESSAGE OF THE PROPHET, THE TRUE SUCCESSOR TO CHRIST. ... WHILE THE
    WHOLE WORLD BELIEVED THAT THE ROMAN EMPIRE WAS BEING KILLED BY PERSIA,
    IT WAS REVEALED TO HIM THAT THE PERSIAN VICTORY WAS SHORT-LIVED AND
    THAT WITHIN A PERIOD OF A FEW YEARS THE ROMANS WOULD CONQUER AGAIN AND
    DEAL A DEADLY BLOW AT THE PERSIANS."
    Abdullah Yusuf Ali
    (Commentator
    on the english translation of the Holy Quran)

    Within ten years of the
    revelation of this Divine prediction, the prophecy was fulfilled!

     

    CHALLENGE OF THE
    QUR’AN

     

    3. The Holy Prophet claimed
    that the Holy Qur'an was from God Almighty, and that it was revealed to
    him by inspiration. The proof of its Divine authorship is its own
    beauty and nature, and the circumstances in which it was promulgated.
    To prove the veracity of his claim, he has placed before you many
    Suras. Can the unbeliever produce one like it? This is a standing
    challenge! An eternal prophecy of mankind's inability to equal or
    excel, or to rival successfully any of its chapters.

    Your plea, "I don't know
    Arabic," is useless. There are millions of Christian Arabs living
    today. The Christians boast that there are at least 10-15 million
    Coptic Christians in Egypt alone and these are not all fellaheens.
    1 Here is the challenge of God
    in His Own words —

    (a) This Qur'an is not such as can be produced by other than
    Allah.
    2

    Holy Qur'an 10:37

    (b) Say: "If the whole of mankind and Jinns were to gather
    together to produce the like of this Qur'an, they could not produce the
    like thereof, even if they backed up each other with help and support."

    (SURA BANI ISRAIL) Holy
    Qur'an 17: 88

    (c) Or do they say. "He forged it"? Say: "Bring then a Sura like
    unto it, and call (to your aid) anyone you can, besides Allah, if it be
    that ye speak the truth!"

    (SURA Y-UNUS) Holy Qur'an 10:38

    (d) And
    if ye are in doubt as to what We have revealed from time to time to Our
    servant, then produce a Sura like thereunto;
    And call your witnesses or helpers (if there are any) besides Allah. If
    your (doubts) are true.
    But if ye cannot — And of a surety ye cannot —
    Then fear the Fire whose fuel is Men and Stones,— which is prepared for
    those who reject Faith.

    (SURA BAQARA) Holy Qur'an 2:23 24

    It is now fourteen hundred
    years since the above challenges, but mankind has singularly failed to
    produce anything similar or something better. This is an Eternal
    Testimony of the Divine Origin of the Holy Qur'an.

    1. Fellaheen: A
    peasant or agricultural labourer in Arab countries

    2. Allah: A proper
    noun for God Almighty in the Semitic languages. See "What is his name?"
    which explains the word in detail

     CHRISTIAN ARABS HAD A TRY!

    The Arab
    Christians in the Middle East, not to be outwitted, launched a
    sixteen-year project lately and produced selected portions of the New
    Testament in Arabic, with a wholesale borrowing
    1 of words and phrases
    verbatim from the Arabic Qur'an. It is an ignoble attempt! In this
    un-ashamed plagiarism, every chapter of this new
    Arabic New Testament of theirs begin with the First verse of the Holy
    Qur'an —

     

     

     

    In the
    name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.

     

    (SURA FATIHA) Holy
    Qur'an 1:1

    Can you beat that?

    There are many more
    challenges and prophecies in the Holy Qur'an and in the Ahadith
    (traditions of the Prophet) which can be expounded. It is a neglected
    field. Perhaps books can be written on the subject. I trust that Muslim
    scholars will take up the challenge. But let me end this theme of
    prophecy with one last reference from Allah's Kalaam (the book
    of God).

    1. "He who goes borrowing,
    goes a sorrowing!"

     

    ISLAM TO PREVAIL

     

     

     

    (e) It is He who
    has sent His Messenger with Guidance and the Religion of Truth.
    That he may proclaim it over all religion.
    Even though the associators may detest (it).

    (SURA SAFE) Holy Qur'an 61:9

    Within decades the above
    promise became true. Islam prevailed. The two superpowers of the day,
    the Persian and the Roman Empires crumbled at the hands of the Muslims.
    And for centuries the power of Islam predominated — from the Atlantic
    to the Pacific.

    Alas, the Muslims are in the
    doldrums today. But fear not, the world of Islam is arising. There is
    hope. Even non-Muslim Visionaries in the West have predicted its
    destiny to be in the skies.

    "AFRICA IS A FAIR FIELD FOR
    ALL RELIGIONS, BUT THE RELIGION WHICH THE AFRICAN WILL ACCEPT, IS A
    RELIGION WHICH BEST SUITS HIS NEEDS: AND THAT RELIGION, EVERYONE WHO
    HAS A RIGHT TO SPEAK ON THE SUBJECT SAYS IS ISLAM."

    "The Shape of Things to
    Come"
    KG. Wells

    "IF ANY RELIGION HAS A
    CHANCE OF CONQUERING ENGLAND, NAY EUROPE WITHIN THE NEXT HUNDRED YEARS,
    THAT RELIGION IS ISLAM."

     

    George Bernard Shaw

     

    Without any real effort on
    the part of the Muslims, we are told by the Westerners themselves that
    Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world today. I hope, this
    pleasant news does not lull us to sleep. The promise of God is true,
    the destiny is there, only a little exertion is required on our part.
    Allah can transform nations and peoples by His Own Will, but He has
    given us the privilege of serving His Deen by personal
    self-sacrifice. To be an effective soldier in this battle, arm yourself
    with John 16: 7 in one or more languages, and watch how Allah fills you
    with more knowledge. It is our destiny to master, supercede and
    bulldoze every ism, never mind how much the unbeliever may be
    averse to the Message of Islam.

     

    GLORIFYING JESUS
    (PBUH)

     

    He (the
    Spirit of truth)
    1 shall Glorify
    Me (Jesus): for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto
    you.

    (HOLY BIBLE) John 16:13

     

    But
    when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father,
    even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall Testify
    of Me.

     

    (HOLY BIBLE) John 15:26

    This promised Comforter,
    even
    the Spirit of Truth in whom Truth is personified, when he
    comes, will bear witness to the truthfulness of the Messiah and absolve
    him from the calumnies of his enemies.

    This Muhummed (pbuh), Al-Amin,
    the Prophet of Truth, eminently succeeded in doing. He made it possible
    that today, a thousand million Muslims believe in Jesus Christ
    (pbuh) as one of the mightiest Messengers of God. They believe in his
    miraculous birth, which many modem day Christians, even Bishops do not
    believe. And they also believe in his many miracles, including those of
    giving life to the dead by God's leave; and healing those born blind
    and the lepers by God's leave.
    What a mighty testimony! Listen to
    the moving terms of the story of his Annunciation:

    1. The same John who supposedly
    wrote this Gospel, says in 1 John 4:6 "We are of God: he that
    knoweth God heareth us; he that is not of God heareth not us. Hereby
    know we the spirit of truth from the spirit of error."
    It is clearly shown here that, spirit of truth is articulated only
    in reference to a human being (and in the context of this study, a
    human prophet), not the Holy Spirit or Ghost. A spirit of truth would
    be a true Prophet, and a spirit of error would be a false prophet. 

     

    MIRACULOUS CONCEPTION

     

    And mention in the Book, the
    story of Mary, when she withdrew from her people to a place In the
    East.

    And she placed a screen to
    screen herself from them;

    Then we sent unto her Our
    Spirit, that appeared to her as a man in all respects.

    She said. "I take refuge in the
    All-Merciful from you, If you fear Allah ..,"

    He said, "I am but a messenger
    come from your Lord, to announce to you the gift of a holy son."

    She said, "How can I have a
    son, seeing that no man has touched me, and I am not unchaste?"

    He said, "Even so your Lord has
    said:

    'Easy is that for Me, and that
    We may appoint him a sign unto men and a mercy from Us; it is a thing
    decreed'."

    So she conceived him, and withdrew with him to a distant place
    ...

    (SURA MARYAM) Holy Qur'an 19: 16-22

    At the present moment a
    billion Muslims throughout the world accept the Immaculate Conception
    of Jesus (pbuh) on the authority of Muhummed (pbuh) alone. Jesus
    (pbuh), his mother Mary and the whole Christian world can never thank
    Al-AMIN
    the Spirit of Truth, enough.

     

    JEWISH RESPONSE TO
    JESUS

     

    O
    Jerusalem, Jerusalem, thou that killest the prophets, and stonest them
    which are sent unto thee, how often would I
    (Jesus)
    have
    gathered thy children together, even as a hen gatheretb her chickens
    under her wings, but ye would not let me!

    (HOLY BIBLE) Matthew 23:37

    That mighty Messenger of God
    went after the Jews like a hen after her chickens, but they turned on
    him like vultures to tear him into pieces. Not satisfied with their
    relentless assaults and harassment and the eventual attempt on his life
    1; they charged his mother for
    having ill-begotten him in sin.

    That they (the Jews) rejected Faith;

     

    and they uttered
    against Mary a grave false charge.

     

    (SURA NISAA) Holy Qur'an 4: 156

    What was that
    "grave false charge"? — The nearest to uttering
    the actual calumny, Muhummed (pbuh) the true "Glorifier" of
    Jesus (John 16: 13) is made to record.

    "O sister of Aaron! thy father was not a man
    of evil, nor thy mother a woman unchaste!"

    (SURA MARYAM) Holy
    Qur'an 19: 28

    1.
    For a
    detailed record of how God foiled the Jewish plot on the life of the
    Messiah, see "Crucifixion
    or Cruci-fiction?"

     

    WHAT SAY THE
    TALMUDISTS

     

    The Jewish charge of the
    illegitimacy of Jesus (pbuh) and the adultery of Mary is referred to
    here as an insinuation of the Jews, questioning Mary's chastity.
    The Holy Qur'an does not stoop down to even reproducing the actual
    monstrous slander. Now compare this Quranic terminology with what the
    erudite and famous Rev. Dummelow, backed by no less than a team of
    sixteen Christian divines, all Reverends and D.D.s; as to their choice
    of words in recording the calumny of the enemies of Christ:

    THE JEWISH TALMUD1STS SAID,
    ‘THE SON OF THE ADULTERESS' (I.E. OF THE VIRGIN MARY) BROUGHT
    MAGIC OUT OF EGYPT. BY CUTTINGS WHICH HE HAD MADE IN HIS FLESH.’ ‘JESUS
    PRACTICED MAGIC AND DECEIVED. AND DROVE ISRAEL TO IDOLATORY.’ IT IS
    INTERESTING TO NOTICE THAT MAHOMET INDIGNANTLY REPUDIATED THESE JEWISH
    CALUMNIES."
    (Emphasis added)

    Dummefow's Bible
    Commentary page 668

     

    EVANGELIST DITTOS
    JEWS

     

    Josh Me Dowell. described as
    a graduate of Wheaton College and magna cum laude graduate of Talbot
    Theological Seminary, and who is reputed to have spoken to more than
    Five million students and faculty at over 550 universities in 53
    countries, seems to have done more research than the whole galaxy of
    Biblical scholars mentioned above, on the subject of the Jewish Talmud
    regarding the birth of his "Lord."

    In his book"Evidence
    that Demands a Verdict,"
    just to prove that Jesus (pbuh) was
    not a myth but a historical person, he quotes extensively from the
    Jewish Talmud
    without any inhibitions. I give you below a few brief
    excerpts from pages 85/86 of his book.

    "Tol’doth Yeshu. JESUS IS REFERRED TO AS ‘BEN
    PANDERA.’ "
    1

     

    Yeb.IV3;49a:

     

    "R. SHIMEON BEN AZZAI SAID
    (CONCERNING JESUS): ‘I FOUND A GENEALOGICAL ROLL IN JERUSALEM WHEREIN
    WAS RECORDED, SUCH-AN-ONE IS A BASTARD OF AN ADULTERESS.’ "

    Joseph Klausner adds to the above:

    "CURRENT EDITIONS OF THE Mishnah,
    ADD: TO SUPPORT THE WORDS OF R. YEHOSHUA' (WHO IN THE SAME Mishnah,
    SAYS: WHAT IS A BASTARD? EVERYONE WHOSE PARENTS ARE LIABLE TO DEATH BY
    THE BETH DIN). THAT JESUS IS HERE REFERRED TO SEEMS TO BE BEYOND
    DOUBT..."

    5/35

    1. "BEN PANDERA:" Means – son of Pandera. A
    Roman soldier alleged by the Jews to have raped Mary to produce her
    illegitimate offspring. (God forbid!) May he forgive us for even
    reproducing such blasphemies.

     

    MISSIONARY LOLLS HIS
    TONGUE

     

    Josh McDowelL the great
    evangelist, "born-again" Christian; worshipper of Christ, filled
    with the Holy Ghost (?) lolls his tongue when quoting calumnies of the
    enemies against his Lord and God — Jesus! And the Christian world laps
    it up. His books are bestsellers in Christendom. A taste for Filth and
    insults has been created in the votaries of Christ. I refuse to quote
    further from that filthy narration. If Jesus (pbuh) has such devoted
    friends (?). what need is there for him to have enemies.

    Muhummed (pbuh) really was
    the true Friend, the Comforter, the Helper, the Advocate, the
    Glorifier, the Testifier of these prophecies in John chapters 14, 15
    and 16. Let me repeat the ungrudging tribute of his enemies to this
    Benefactor of Jesus (pbuh) his mother Mary and humanity at large:
    "It is interesting to notice that Mahomet
    1 indignantly repudiated these
    Jewish calumnies."
    (Rev. Dummelow and his associates).

    1.
    "Mahomet":
    It is a pity that scholars of Christianity of the
    highest eminence still misspell the name of the Holy Prophet, even at
    the end of the twentieth century.
