Is Mohammed the comforter, the Holy Spirit?

Q6. Host: Some of the Muslim scholars claim that Mohammed is the comforter, the Holy Spirit. Can you comment on this? (6:24)


Dr. Labib: Well, you know, there is a man by the name Ibn Tamima. He was one of the very well known Imam, many, many years ago. And he wrote a very large book. And in his book he said, that Mohammed is a prophet like Moses. The Holy Spirit is a prophecy about Mohammed. He said more than that. In Psalm 84, there is a verse that is saying that people will go in the valley of weeping, and they make it as a source of comfort. You know, in Arabic, the valley of weeping means Bouka. And he said Bouka is Mecca. And the Mecca, this is a prophecy about Islam, about Mohammed. He came to Mecca, and he fulfilled that prophecy.

In one of my books I said, "Come on here, this is no prophecy at all, because the Bible, the psalmist was speaking about people who will pass through the valley of sorrow, of suffering, and through the comfort and the joy of the Lord, will change the weeping and the suffering into joy and peace. And now you go, you come and tell me that this is a prophecy about Mohammed? What is that all about?

Now we come to the comforter of the Holy Spirit. What did Jesus say about that? He said that this comforter is the Spirit. Was Mohammed a spirit? Is one questions. A spirit? "I will send you the spirit of truth." But Mohammed was human, he was not spirit. He was a human being, with a body. Number two, the paraclitus, in the Greek word means 'comforter'. It doesn't mean Mohammed or Ahmed. Nothing like that! Then again, Jesus said to the disciples, "I am going to send to you the comforter, not after many days." Mohammed came after 600 years. How could he be the comforter? Again, He said, "When this comforter will come, he will glorify me." Mohammed didn't glorify Jesus Christ. In fact, he degraded Jesus Christ. And he said, and this is in the Arabic word, In English it is, "The similitude of Jesus is like Adam. He created him from the dust, and He said to him, "Be," and he was." He degraded Jesus Christ, the eternal Son of God.

So, to say that the comforter, the Holy Spirit, who came to magnify, and to glorify Jesus Christ is Mohammed. And then Jesus said about the Holy Spirit, "He will remind you of all what I have said to you." Listen, without the Holy Spirit? How could the gospel will be written? Who could memorize the whole sermon on the Mount? But the Holy Spirit brought all the sermon of the Mount to the mind of Matthew, and he wrote it word by word. You see, and he reminded the disciples of all the sayings of Jesus Christ, of all the miracles of Jesus Christ. And they wrote it word by word. Why? Because there was the element of the Holy Spirit. Did Mohammed do that? Mohammed didn't do that. Mohammed distorted the Bible. He distorted the Bible all together. So Mohammed is not the Holy Spirit, and to say that he is the Holy Spirit, well, it is just to say something not in the Bible.

Why do the, Muslim clerics want to refer to the Bible to find something about Mohammed there, while they are saying that the Bible was corrupted? If the Bible was corrupted, why are you searching for a verse here, and a verse there, referring to Mohammed? They say the "Bible is corrupted! Leave it alone!" But with their saying that the Bible was fabricated, was corrupted, they are really dying to find a verse here, or a verse there to speak about Mohammed.You know, you go to Isaiah Chapter 42, when he speaks about the servant of the Lord, and they said that the servant of the Lord is Mohammed. Come on here, what are you talking about? Matthew said that this same prophecy was fulfilled to the letter, in Jesus Christ. How can you come and say this verse is concerning Mohammed?

So we just forget about that illusion, that the comforter was Mohammed. Mohammed was not the Holy Spirit!

The above discussion is so really TRUE. U believe in a particular religion and you want to prove yourself using other religions, that's humiliating. The Bible till date needs no other religion or book to prove or dictate itself, THE BIBLE STANDS FOR ITSELF. But the Muslims on one side say the bible was changed and at the same time they keep picking verses from the same Bible to prove Mohammed or Islam. Be urself fellas.

Original followers of Jesus (pbuh), the Ebionites/Nasorean Jews never believed in Greek Testaments used by Christian-Romans. After all the Greek Testamenst are filled with fables written after the ascend of Jesus to heaven.

Nasr, New Testament material was written by apostles and disciples of Jesus. The letters and gospels were widely circulated among the followers of Jesus. If something was incorrect they would have stopped reading it and sharing it. Those letters and gospels would have been destroyed and we would not have the New Testament like we do today. I would like you to provide me with an example of ONE fable in the New Testament since you believe there are so many. Just ONE, Nasr.

The quran talk about the scriptures that was revealed to the christians, that is the Old and the new testerment,this two books were combined together as one, if mohamed is the holy spirit why is it that his qoran was not added to the bible as the latest testerment rather it was a seperate book full of confussion and contradiction,k illing and violence. Thank God for the erra of information technology. Islam allow freedom of speach and religion in the middle east for a secon, the koran and islam will collaps.

I will not fo far written, my questions is if the holy ghost is what dwel on the disciples to guide them in written the scripture(bible ),
I want to know is it the holy ghost that instructed the gospel writer regarding the crucifixion and resurrection to narrate different story, example like how many women visited jesus tomb and what hour all the gospel writer differs on with different opinions, Three, two one or many? Read vers1 of al the last chapter of the four gospel.

Keep in mind that the gospel writers witnessed the crucifixion and resurrection. There are differences in the recorded stories because different perspectives are communicated. It does not mean that one is more right than the other - just that they are two different perspectives on the same event. Through the four gospels, we are given a complete perspective on what occurred during the events recorded. If you and I attended an event then we both wrote an account of what occurred, we'd probably have slightly different accounts because we'd see it from different perspectives. When you put our accounts together, they would make the whole. This is what we see occurring in the gospels.

It is said that the Spirit cannot be seen. So how can it be Mohammed?

John 14

17 Even the Spirit of truth; whom the world cannot receive, because it seeth him not, neither knoweth him: but ye know him; for he dwelleth with you, and shall be in you.

@ H F Cheung, first of all when you read John 14:17, there is an asterisk, they took out "IS" (meaning, now, today) and replaced it with "shall be" (to support the claims of the holy spirit coming during Pentecost. Herein, lies the problem with the Bible today. There are no originals, and nothing even close to it. There are too many changes that have been made to even begin to count and mostly for political movements.
Now in the debate of "Is the Comforter Mohammad?" My opinion as a Muslim is "NO" he was the merely facilitator of the "Comforter" which was/ is the Holy Qur'an. Unfortunately, the hatred in your hearts won't even listen to reason or explore for yourself, so it's pointless for me to argue. I only pray you will take 5 minutes to research openly. With Peace....Michael

Michael, first of all, who changed 'is' to 'shall be' and when? This is simply not true. Second, the criteria for the Comforter is very specific. From this very verse we are told: 1. The world cannot receive him because it seeth him not. If I am not mistaken, anyone can "see" the Qur'an and those during the time of Muhammad saw him, as well. 2. He dwelleth with you and... IN you. At the time of this verse neither the Qur'an nor Muhammad existed. How could the Qur'an or Muhammad dwell IN anyone? Perhaps the Qur'an if you memorize it, but this does not imply memorization. Muhammad is a man and therefore cannot dwell inside of anyone. Neither Muhammad nor the Qur'an fit these descriptions and this is only one verse. In a verse following this one Jesus says, "But the Comforter, which is the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in MY name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you." The Comforter is to point to Jesus.
