People of the book – part 21 (song of Salomon)

2/ The word Muhammadim is mentioned a few times in the Bible. Its translation is “altogether lovely” or ‘The Praised One’. Hence in other places the word Muhammadim really means “altogether lovely”. In Arabic too, it means the praised one. But…. In this chapter of the Bible It doesn’t. It refers to a person in my opinion.

Here it is:

Song of Solomon 5:16 :
His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is “altogether lovely” . This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

The Hebrew word used there is Muhammuddim. The end letters IM is plural of respect majesty and grandeur used in Hebrew. Minus “im” the name is Muhamud.

Now let’s read all of it:

Songs of Salomon 5: 1-16

1 I am come into my garden, my sister, my spouse: I have gathered my myrrh with my spice; I have eaten my honeycomb with my honey; I have drunk my wine with my milk: eat, O friends; drink, yea, drink abundantly, O beloved.

2 I sleep, but my heart waketh: it is the voice of my beloved that knocketh, saying, Open to me, my sister, my love, my dove, my undefiled: for my head is filled with dew, and my locks with the drops of the night.

3 I have put off my coat; how shall I put it on? I have washed my feet; how shall I defile them?

4 My beloved put in his hand by the hole of the door, and my bowels were moved for him.

5 I rose up to open to my beloved; and my hands dropped with myrrh, and my fingers with sweet smelling myrrh, upon the handles of the lock.

6 I opened to my beloved; but my beloved had withdrawn himself, and was gone: my soul failed when he spake: I sought him, but I could not find him; I called him, but he gave me no answer.

7 The watchmen that went about the city found me, they smote me, they wounded me; the keepers of the walls took away my veil from me.

8 I charge you, O daughters of Jerusalem, if ye find my beloved, that ye tell him, that I am sick of love.

9 What is thy beloved more than another beloved, O thou fairest among women? what is thy beloved more than another beloved, that thou dost so charge us?

10 My beloved is white and ruddy, the chiefest among ten thousand.

11 His head is as the most fine gold, his locks are bushy, and black as a raven.

12 His eyes are as the eyes of doves by the rivers of waters, washed with milk, and fitly set.

13 His cheeks are as a bed of spices, as sweet flowers: his lips like lilies, dropping sweet smelling myrrh.

14 His hands are as gold rings set with the beryl: his belly is as bright ivory overlaid with sapphires.

15 His legs are as pillars of marble, set upon sockets of fine gold: his countenance is as Lebanon, excellent as the cedars.

16 His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

Some say, it is the wife of Salomon who speaks about her husband. How can this be if “The watchmen that went about the city found her, they smote her, they wounded her; the keepers of the walls took away her veil from her.” unless they wanted to be sentenced to death! This is not acceptable.
It is easily seen that this woman was in love of someone who wasn’t present, who didn’t exist yet. But she knew his name was Muhammed.

One thing that I feel that I have to mention. Among all the prophecies in the Bible that speak about the coming of Muhammed, I’ve kept the most obvious to me. As I don’t think that you would believe if I’ve written the others here too. So I’ve kept two. Which is rejected by the Christians who obviously wouldn’t want it to be referring to the last Prophet.


1/ Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you”.

John 16.7

“Ahmed” or “Muhammad” meaning “the one who praises” or “the praised one” is almost the translation of the Greek word Periclytos. In the Gospel of John 14:16, 15:26, and 16:7. The word ‘Comforter’ is used in the English translation for the Greek word Paracletos which means advocate or a kind friend rather than a comforter.
Paracletos is the warped reading for Periclytos. The Greek word Paraclete clearly refers to the last Prophet who is a mercy for all creatures. Here is why:

Some Christians say that the Comforter mentioned in these prophecies refers to the Holy Sprit. They fail to realise
that the prophecy clearly says that only IF Jesus departs will the Comforter come.
The Bible states that the Holy Spirit was already present on earth before and during the time of Jesus , for instance when Jesus was being baptised. Hence this prophecy refers to none other than someone who wasn’t already present, i.e Prophet Muhammad.

John 15:26 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.

This is another proof, doesn’t Islam testify that Jesus was sent from God and that he was a miracle of Him? Of course it does! That’s exactly what this verse says.

In New Testament times, we find that the Jews were still expecting the fulfilment of the prophecy of ‘ONE LIKE MOSES’, refer John 1:19-25. When Jesus claimed to be the Messiah of the Jews, the Jews began to enquire as to where was Elias? The Jews had a parallel prophecy that before the coming of the Messiah, Elias must come first in his second coming. Jesus confirms this Jewish belief:
“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Elias truly shall first come, and restore all things. But I say unto you, that Elias is come already, and they knew him not, but have done unto him whatsoever they listed. Likewise shall also the Son of man suffer of them. Then the disciples understood that he spake unto them of John the Baptist” (Matthew 17:11-13).
According to the New Testament the Jews were not the ones to swallow the words of any would-be Messiah. In their investigations they underwent intense difficulties in order to find their true Messiah. And this the Gospel of John confirms: “and this is the record of John, when the jews sent priests and levites from Jerusalem to ask him, who art thou ? Amd he confessed and denied not, but confessed, I’m not the christ.” (This was only natural because there can’t be two Messiahs at the same time. If Jesus was the Christ then John couldn’t be the Christ!) “and they asked him, what then? Art thou Elias? And he saith, I’m not.” (Here John the Baptist contradicts Jesus! Jesus says that John is “Elias” and John denies that he is what Jesus ascribes him to be. One of the TWO (Jesus or John), God forbid!, is definitely not speaking the TRUTH! On the testimony of Jesus himself, John the Baptist was the greatest of the Israelite prophets: ” Verily I say unto you, Among them that are born of women there hath not risen a greater than John the Baptist: notwithstanding he that is least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than he. “(Matthew 11:11).

We Muslims know John the Baptist as Yahya. We revere him as a true prophet of God. The Prophet Jesus is also esteemed as one of the mightiest messenger of the Almighty. How can we Muslims impute lies to either of them? We leave this problem between Jesus and John for the Christians to solve, for their “sacred scriptures” abound in discrepancies which they have been glossing over as the “dark sayings of Jesus”. We Muslims are really interested in the last questions posed to John the Baptist by the Jewish elite- “ART THOU THAT PROPHET? And he answered, NO.” (John 1:21)

The weirdest of all! in the verse 19 of Deuteronomy chapter 18:
” And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.”

We have a further fulfillment of the prophecy in Muhummed! Note the words-‘…..MY WORDS WHICH HE SHALL SPEAK IN MY NAME,” and in whose name does Muhummed speak? We all know the answer even if we’re not Muslims: “in the name of God, most gracious, most merciful”

The Prophecy was fulfilled in to the letter. Every chapter of the Holy Qur’ân except the 9th begin with the formula: in the name of God, most gracious, most merciful.

The Muslim begins his every lawful act with this. But the Christian begins: “In the name of the Father, son and Holy Ghost.”
Concerning Deuteronomy chapter eighteen, I have given you more than 14 reasons as to how this prophecy refers to Muhummed and NOT to Jesus.

The Christian theologians are ignorant of even the name of God. Because “God” is not a name, and “Father” is also not a name.
