be above all, and the hands of all will be opened to him in reverence.1
Another verse from the Torah:
And He said to Moses: “O Moses, verily I shall send them a prophet like you, from the sons of their brothers [the children of Isma‘il]; I shall place My word in his mouth, and shall punish whoever does not accept the words of the one who will speak in My name.”2
A third verse from the Torah:
Moses said: “O Lord! Verily I have found in the Torah the best of communities that will emerge for the benefit of humanity, that will enjoin good and forbid wrong, and that will believe in God. Let it be my community!” God said: “That is the community of Muhammad.”3
A REMINDER: In those books, the name of Muhammad is given in Syriac form, such as Mushaffah, Munhamanna, Himyata, and names meaning Muhammad in Hebrew. Otherwise the name of Muhammad is explicitly mentioned only in a few places, and was also altered by the jealous Jews.4
A verse from the Psalms of David states:
O David! A prophet will appear after you, named Ahmad Muhammad; he will be truthful, and he will be a chief, and his Community will be forgiven.5
One of the Seven ‘Abdullah’s, ‘Abdullah b. ‘Amr b. al-‘As, who made extensive studies of the earlier scriptures, and ‘Abdullah b. Salam, who was the earliest to accept Islam from among the famous Jewish scholars, and the famous scholar Ka‘b al-Ahbar from among the Children of Israel, all pointed out in the Torah, which was not then corrupted to its present extent, the following verse, which after addressing Moses, then addresses the prophet-yet-to-come:
‘Ali al-Qari, Sharh al-Shifa’, i, 743; Yusuf Nabhani, Hujjat Allah ‘ala’l-‘Alamin, 105-6; Genesis, Chap. 16.
