Muhammad is mentioned in the Bible

The author of Qur’an makes several mentions that the self-proclaimed prophet of Islam is mentioned in the Torah and the Gospel.

7:157 الَّذِينَ يَتَّبِعُونَ الرَّسُولَ النَّبِيَّ الْأُمِّيَّ الَّذِي يَجِدُونَهُ مَكْتُوبًا عِندَهُمْ فِي التَّوْرَاةِ وَالْإِنجِيلِ يَأْمُرُهُم بِالْمَعْرُوفِ وَيَنْهَاهُمْ عَنِ الْمُنكَرِ وَيُحِلُّ لَهُمُ الطَّيِّبَاتِ وَيُحَرِّمُ عَلَيْهِمُ الْخَبَائِثَ وَيَضَعُ عَنْهُمْ إِصْرَهُمْ وَالْأَغْلَالَ الَّتِي كَانَتْ عَلَيْهِمْ فَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا بِهِ وَعَزَّرُوهُ وَنَصَرُوهُ وَاتَّبَعُوا النُّورَ الَّذِي أُنزِلَ مَعَهُ أُولَٰئِكَ هُمُ الْمُفْلِحُونَُُ‎
Those who follow the messenger, the Prophet who can neither read nor write, whom they will find described in the Torah and the Gospel, which are with them […]

So of course we should find Muhammad in the Bible that we have according to that passage. Guess what? He is!

Here are a few instances where he is found.

1st John 4:1

Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Muhammad allegedly received his revelations from a spirit claiming to be angel Gabriel, who appeared to him in a vision. His first impression was that he was demonically possessed.[1]

His wife Khadija managed to convince him that he is a prophet of the great god Allah. Allah was one of the 360 pagan deities back then. None of which was the God of the Bible, YHWH.

In the end, he never actually tested the spirit that posed as angel Gabriel. Being unable to read or write, he simply lacked the methodology, and he knew absolutely nothing about the Torah or Gospels, aside from what he had heard in passing from Jews and Christians. Nonetheless, he repeatedly tried to commit suicide by hurling himself off a cliff, that’s how mad the demon drove him.

Matthew 7:15

Beware of false prophets who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves.

Muslims pride themselves of outward appearances of piety, such as the month-long fasting period of Ramadan. However, they rarely tell you that this supposed fasting period is actually a feast during which food sales in Islamic countries double due to the extravagant food-gorging that happens between the sundown and sunrise.

Many people are suckled into coming into Islam by lofty promises. However, when they begin expressing doubts regarding the most obvious false prophet in the history, they soon discover a hidden facet of the religion: Islam is a one-way ticket. If you happen to live in a Muslim-majority country and you denounce islam, you will be killed. If you live in westernized country where Islamic murders do not have the favor of law, you may still find yourself ostracised by everyone you once thought is your friend, but who now think you don’t deserve to be treated as a human.

Sahih Al-Bukhari 9/84/57:

Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to 'Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn 'Abbas who said, "If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah's Apostle forbade it, saying, 'Do not punish anybody with Allah's punishment (fire).' I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changes his Islamic religion, then kill him.'"

Similar statements are found in 4/52/260, al-Muwatta of Imam Malik 36.18.15, etc.

Matthew 24:11

And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray.

John 10:10

The thief comes only to steal and kill and destroy.

Granted, this could be equally about Muhammad or his followers. His followers certainly did plenty of stealing what isn’t theirs*, killing and destroying, much of which is recorded in the hadiths.

*) Islam of course conveniently redefines stealing so that war booty is exempt, but it really amounts to nothing more than robbery, with the addition of murders.

Jeremiah 14:14

Then the LORD said unto me, The prophets prophesy lies in my name: I sent them not, neither have I commanded them, neither spake unto them: they prophesy unto you a false vision and divination, and a thing of nought, and the deceit of their heart.

Deuteronomy 18:19

This one is the Muslim favourite!

But the prophet, which shall presume to speak a word in my name, which I have not commanded him to speak, or that shall speak in the name of other gods, even that prophet shall die.

His followers are found in the Bible too.

Muhammad’s followers are also found in the Gospel!

John 16:2—3

[…] Indeed, the hour is coming when whoever kills you will think he is offering service to God. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.

Jesus was speaking to the Jews. All of Jesus’s first followers were Jews.

Contrast to e.g. Sahih al-Bukhari 4/52/177:

Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah's Apostle said, "The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. "O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him."

And 4/56/791, 4/52/176, Sahih Muslim 041/6981, 041/6983, 041/6984, 041/6985, all ṣaḥīḥ (authentic by Islamic standards).
Not coincidentally, this same phrase is also found in the founding covenant of Hamas, the terrorist organization in control of Gaza.

P.S. Anyone who tries to refute my points by referring to something Zakir Naik said, will be subject to ridicule. Zakir Naik is a joke.
