|Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alaihi wa sallam in the Bible|
The Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) was described in the original Torah (Old Testament) and Bible [Qur’aan 7:157]. With all the distortion, one can still find possible mention of him:
SONG OF SOLOMON (Old Testament)
This Song is holy to Jews and Christians. Its real intent has not been understood according to Bible scholars. Muslims will understand it well as a description of the Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). It gives an amazing description confirmed by Hadith:
Song 5:10- My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand
HADITH: Rosy color [Bukhari 4:56]; White complexion [Bukhari, 1:63] Prophet (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) left Madinah IN THE COMPANY OF TEN THOUSAND (Muslim warriors) in Ramadan for Conquest of Makkah [Bukhari 5:574]
Song 5:11- His head is as the most fine gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven.
HADITH: His hair GLOSSY AND BLACK, INCLINED TO CURL, he wore it long." [Zad al Ma`d 2:45] When he (The Prophet sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) died (at 63 years of age), HE HAD SCARCELY 20 WHITE HAIRS IN HIS HEAD AND BEARD. [Bukhari 4:747]
Song 5:12- His eyes are as the eyes of doves by the rivers of waters, washed with milk, and fitly set.
HADITH: He had black, attractive eyes finely arched by continuous eyebrows. [Zad al Ma`d 2:45]
Song 5:13- His cheeks are as a bed of spices, as sweet flowers: his lips like lilies, dropping sweet smelling myrrh.
HADITH: I never smelt ambergris or musk as fragrant as the fragrance of the body of Allah's Messenger (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam). [Muslim 30:5759]
Song 5:16- His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely.
Chikko mamtaqeem, v'chulo MACHAMAD-im [Original Hebrew transliteration of this verse]
The word machamad is close to the Arabic Muhammad in pronunciation. The Hebrew-English Dictionary defines it as ‘precious one, praised one’. Muhammad means Praised One in Arabic! The way this word is written in Hebrew is the same as the word Muhammad. The only difference is in pronunciation.
Jewish scholars say: The whole word is not worth the day on which this Song was given to Israel; (it) is the holiest of the holy. [Tractate of Yaddayim 3:5, Mishna] Holy indeed, for it foretells the greatest of all Prophets (sallallahu alaihi wa sallam)!
