Was Holy Prophet Mohammad (May Peace Be upon Him) Predicted in the Tawrat? Apparently YES!
The vision Holy Prophet Isaiah saw is eerily similar to how the Holy Prophet Mohammad started his prophetic mission, and the effects it caused those following him:
"The whole vision has become to you like the words of a book that is sealed, which men deliver to one who is literate, saying, 'Read this, please.'And he says, 'I cannot, for it is sealed.'
Then the book is delivered to one who is illiterate, saying, “Read this, please.”
And he says, 'I am not literate.'Therefore the Lord said:'Inasmuch as these people draw near with their mouths. And honor Me 'with their lips, But have removed their hearts far from Me, And their fear toward Me is taught by the commandment of men, Therefore, behold, I will again do a marvelous work. Among this people, a marvelous work and a wonder; For the wisdom of their wise men shall perish, And the understanding of their prudent men shall be hidden.'" Isaiah 29:11-14
How Islam started:
BukhariVolume 9, Book 87, Number 111: Narrated 'Aisha:
The angel came to him in it and asked him to read. The Prophet replied, "I do not know how to read." (The Prophet added), "The angel caught me (forcefully) and pressed me so hard that I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and again asked me to read, and I replied, "I do not know how to read," whereupon he caught me again and pressed me a second time till I could not bear it anymore. He then released me and asked me again to read, but again I replied, "I do not know how to read (or, what shall I read?)." Thereupon he caught me for the third time and pressed me and then released me and said, "Read: In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists). Has created man from a clot. Read and Your Lord is Most Generous...up to..... ..that which he knew not." (96.15)
The start of Islam was already discussed earlier when discussing How Holy Prophet Mohammad (May Peace beUpon Him) was a disturbed individual contemplating suicide many times (http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/10/suicidal-mohammad.html)
But the above verse from Isaiah and Aisha's account seem very similar. Isaiah foresaw someone receiving a book, who could not read. He still managed to deliver a message where people worship a god, where they do so by their words, but their spirits are far from God. This is like Mohammad's teachings which are more bodily rather than spiritual:
The results of Isaiah's prophecy are strikingly similar to the Muslim world, where all individual thought is suppressed (http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/06/mohammad-forbid-muslims-to-play-chess.html); common sense and decency thrown out the window (http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/06/mohallel-islams-version-of-please-bang.html)
and so many other things, like issuing fatwas about whether Old Muslim men can thigh their young, pre-menstrating brides before sex in order so that they could get off:
(The English translation of the Fatwah is provided in comment 1)
or how a man must be suckled by a woman who is not his relative in order to work togethor in the same office as her (http://www.westernresistance.com/blog/archives/003748.html). (Ofcourse, this was a result of where Mohammad forbid adoption so he could marry his former adopted son's wife)
What does this mean? Praise be to Allah! Mohammad (May Peace be upon him) was predicted!!! The Tawrat was right!!!
There are three possible scenarios that come from this
1) If one believes that Isaiah's message has been corrupted, please see the following video at: http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/09/interesting-video-on-corruption-of.html
2) If one thinks this is a logical fallacy and assert that Bukhari, and Muslim, holy Hadith writers had access to the Tawrat verses in question, and inserted this verse to show that Holy Prophet Mohammad was predicted, then it implicitly means that Holy Hadith authors were making fun of Prophet Mohammad and the society that he brought
3) If one thinks the Tawrat is authentic, and that Holy Hadith writers did not know about this verse or were reporting the truth, then maybe Illah (the real Arabic word for God - Allah is a name of a god in the original pagan kabba - afterall, Mohammad's father's name was AbdAllah [slave to the moon god named Allah]) foretold of Holy Prophet Mohammad in a negative way.
Afterall Mohammad cavorted with a race of Jinn, (demonic spirits) and as a favour to them, only managed to get the Jinn animal dung or bone because they were such nice Jinn. How much would he do for you, as an individual, if you follow him?http://muslimhadith.blogspot.com/2008/05/animal-dung-is-food-of-jinns.html
