Proclaim the Truth, Defend the Truth, Live the Truth

Does Isaiah prophecy about Mohammad

12 Or if you give the scroll to someone who cannot read, and say, “Read this, please, ” they will answer, don’t know how to read.” (Isaiah 29)

Muslims argue that this verse refers to Mohammad.When Angel Gabriel came to him on mount Hira, he told him to "read" (Iqra), and Mohammad replied "I can not read".So this is an accurate prediction in the Bible about the advent of Islam.Well, is it?

The very first verses says :

1 Woe to you, Ariel, Ariel,
the city where David settled! 

So in context, this passage is referring to people in Jerusalem (David's city) and not Mecca, unless Muslims are willing to believe that Mohammad was living in Jerusalem.

Now read verse 11:
For you this whole vision is nothing but words sealed in a scroll. And if you give the scroll to someone who can read, and say, “Read this, please, ” they will answer, “I can’t; it is sealed.”

At first, the scroll is presented to a person who CAN read.If Mohammad is the person who can't read, who is this person?

But the greatest loophole in the argument is this.The one who brings the scroll is not an Angel.It is the nation of Israel!.So dear Muslims, do you believe that it was the Jews who gave the Qur'an to Mohammad.If not, then stop misquoting this passage.

Finally, this whole argument is based on "circular reasoning", i.e, assuming the conclusion and then making the argument.Muslims have assumed the truth of Islam, that Mohammad is really a prophet, that it was an Angel who bought him the Qur'an et cetera, and then they have proceeded to find supposed "prophecies" in the Bible.Even if we take this passage to be a prophecy, what is the evidence what what the traditional Muslim sources are telling us is true?

Think about it,

God bless you.
