Prophecies Made by The Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) When a prophet speaks in the Name of the Lord, if the word does not come to pass or come true, that is a word which the Lord has not spoken, the prophet has spoken it presumptuously, you need not be afraid of him. . (Deuteronomy 18:21-22)  Introduction Very often Christians reject the prophetic mission of the prophet Muhammad (pbuh) under the delusion that he made no prophecies. This claim was recentlyexemplified by a member of the answering-islam.org team called Andrew Vargo, who claimed that:- “Muhammad fancied himself a Prophet like Jesus and the Prophets of the Old Testament. The problem with Muhammad's claim is that a Prophet must give prophecies (detailed predictions of future events which must come true) in order to be called a Prophet. One does not bestow the title on himself as Muhammad did. Muhammad failed the Bible's test and, therefore, cannot be considered a Prophet” (Andrew Vargo, http://www.answering-islam.org/responses/badawi/radio /RA200K63.htm ) However, this shows a serious lack of understanding. Muhammad (pbuh) was the seal of the Prophets and he probably made more prophecies than any other prophet. In this article we will discuss the Prophecies made by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), under three separate sections: Prophecies from the Qur’an; Prophecies from Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.http://www.answering-christianity.com/prophecies_by_prophet_muhammad.ht1 of 1110/17/2014 1:52 PM  Prophecies from the Hadeeths; Prophecies concerning the last days.This article will (insh’allah) not only refute the ideas of those evangelists who try to deny the mission of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) but also provide further evidence that Muhammad (pbuh) was a genuine prophet who was sent to call humanity back to true monotheism as practiced by all previous prophets and theworship of the one and true God. Prophecies from the Qur’anThe triumph of the Byzantines over the Persians 1. The Byzantine and Persian Empires were the super-powers of the time. It was during the years when the few believers were severely persecuted in Makka thatthe Persians utterly defeated the Byzantines. They had sweeping victories, and conquered Aleppo, Antioch, and the chief Syrian provinces, including Damascus.Jerusalem fell to their arms in 614-615. The Christians were massacred and their churches burnt. The Persian flood of conquest went on to Egypt, and reached asfar as Tripoli in North Africa. Another Persian army ravaged Asia Minor and reached right up to the gates of Constantinople. The Makkan pagans rejoiced greatly,and redoubled their taunts and persecution against the Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings, whose Message was a renewal of the Message of Jesuspreached in Palestine. The following Qur’anic verses, which were revealed just at that time, gave certain tidings of a very near victory of the Romans over thePerisans:The Romans have been defeated in a land close by, but they, after their defeat, will be victorious, within nine years. God’s is thecommand in the former case and in the latter, and on that day believers will rejoice, with the help of God. He helps to victorywhom He wills. He is the All-Mighty, the All-Compassionate. ( al-Rum , 30.1-5)No one at that time could make such a prediction. But the Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings, conveyed these Divine Revelations to his followers. Theyconfirmed him without hesitation and Abu Bakr bet the Makkan polytheists that the Romans would be victorious in nine years. Heraclius, the Roman Emperor attacked the Persians initially by sea in 622 (the year of the Hijra), and after decisive battles and three successive campaigns, put them to rout in a few years. Hisvictories happened at the same time as the believers won the victory of Badr over the Makkan polytheists. Thus the verses above contained two predictions, bothof which came true in nine years. The Qur’an gave the news of the conquest of Makka two years before 2. It was only six years after the Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings, had emigrated to Madina that he left for Makka for a minor pilgrimage. However, theMakkans stopped him at Hudaybiya and a peaceful treaty was concluded after negotiations. Some articles of the Treaty were objected to by the believers but theQur’anic verses which were revealed following the conclusion of the Treaty described it as a manifest victory and gave the believers the decisive glad tiding, whichis as follows:In truth, God fulfilled the vision of His Messenger: You will surely enter the Sacred Mosque, if God wills, in full security; you willhave your heads shaved, your hair shortened, and you will have nothing to fear. He knew what you knew not, and He granted,besides this, a near victory. He it is Who has sent His Messenger with guidance and the religion of truth, that He may cause it toprevail over all religion. God is enough for a witness. ( al-Fath , 48.27–8)One year later the Muslims performed the minor pilgrimage and the year after they conquered Makka. Also, Islam has been prevalent over all other religions for centuries and, if God wills, it will have a world-wide superiority in a near future. The Qur’an gave the news that the dead body of Pharaoh would one day be discovered Prophecies from Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.http://www.answering-christianity.com/prophecies_by_prophet_muhammad.ht2 of 1110/17/2014 1:52 PM  3. In ancient Egypt, Pharaoh used to torture the Children of Israel. God sent Moses to him with the mission of inviting him to believe in One God and allow theIsraelites to leave Egypt with Moses. Pharaoh refused and the struggle between them continued for a long time. However, one night Moses succeeded in marchingtowards the frontier with his people but Pharaoh, becoming aware of his attempt, set out to follow him. When Moses reached the Red Sea, he touched it with hisstaff, and a furrow opened across the sea. Pharaoh attempted to follow him, but was engulfed with his legions. While narrating this event, The Qur’an makes avery interesting prediction:Today We shall preserve your body that you may be a sign to those after you: although most men give no heed to Our signs.( Yunus , 10.92)The dead body of Pharaoh was later found floating on the Western shores of the Sinai peninsula. The native residents can still show you to this land, which is nowknown as Jabal Firawn  (Hill of Pharaoh). A few miles from this hill is a hot spring called Hammam Firawn  (the Bath of Pharaoh). Promise of Victory 4.The Qur'an says: Allah has promised to those of you who believe, and do good deeds, that He will surely grant them in the land inheritance of power as Hegranted it to those before them; that He will establish in authority their religion which He has chosen for them. And that He will change their state after fear toone of security and peace. They will worship Me alone and not associate aught with Me.    (24:55) And also: Say to those who deny faith, soon you will bevanquished.    (3:12) and When comes the help of Allah and Victory, and you see the people enter Allah's religion in multitudes . . .    (110:1-2)The first verse was revealed at a time of the Muslim's weakness, promising the righteous victory, and the second predicting the peoples entering into Islam incrowds, and so it came to pass, after the capture of Mecca, and in the time of the Caliphs Abu Bakr, 'Umar, 'Uthman and 'Ali, who were from the most piouscompanions of the Prophet, were established by Allah in the land, defeating the Persian and Roman empires, so that Islam was established from Spain to parts of China in a mere twenty years. This, in part, fulfills another prophecy of the Qur'an: It is He who has sent the Messenger with guidance, and the religion of truth,to make it triumphant over all religions.    (9:32) Christianity, Judaism, paganism have never regained any lasting dominance, physically and intellectually since thecoming of Islam. The secular philosophies of communism and capitalism are in the process of being dealt death blows. At the present rate of growth Islam willover take Christianity by 2025 in terms of numbers. See also Qur'an 48:18-21 and 1:13, which promise victory. Tidings of the Last Day 5. A considerable part of the Qur’an is about the events of the Last Day. The Qur’an describes how the world will be destroyed and re-built again and how thedead will be raised, assembled in the Place of Mustering, and, after being judged, will go to either Paradise or Hell. The Qur’an also gives a vivid description of Paradise and Hell and the life in them. Examples of the Prophet’s predictions which exist in books of Tradition (hadeeths) 1 ‘Umar reports in a narration recorded in Sahih al-Muslim :‘Before the Battle of Badr started, God’s Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings, walked around the battlefield and pointed to some locations,saying,  Abu Jahl will be killed here, ‘Utba here, Shayba here, Walid here , and so on. By God, we found, after the battle, the dead bodies of all thosemen in the exact places that God’s Messenger had pointed out.’ While in Makka under great tortures, the Prophet predicted the future victories of Islam 2. Bukhari and Abu Dawud quote Habbab ibn Arat, who said: Prophecies from Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.http://www.answering-christianity.com/prophecies_by_prophet_muhammad.ht3 of 1110/17/2014 1:52 PM  Once, during the days of trouble and torture in Makka, I went to God’s Messenger, who was sitting in the shade of the Ka‘ba. I was still a slave in the hands of the Makkans then. They inflicted on me severe tortures. Unable to endure those tortures any more, I requested God’s Messenger to pray to God for help and salvation. But he turned towards me and said:By God, previous communities had to endure more pitiless tortures. Some of them were made to lie in ditches and cut in two with sawsbut this did not make them forsake their faith. They were skinned alive but they never became weak against the enemy. Surely God will  perfect this religion, but you display undue haste. A day will come when a woman will travel alone by herself from San’a to Hadramawt fearing nothing but wild beasts. However, you show impatience. Habbab concluded: By God, what God’s Messenger predicted that day, have all come true. I have personally witnessed it all  . The Messenger predicted ‘Ammar’s martyrdom in a civil war  3. Bukhari, Muslim and Ahmad ibn Hanbal record:During the construction of the Prophet’s Mosque in Madina, God’s Messenger, upon him be peace and blessings, told ‘Ammar: What a pity O ‘Ammar, a rebellious group will kill you. ‘Ammar was killed in the Battle of Siffin by the supporters of Mu‘awiya, who rebelled against Caliph ‘Ali. The Prophet foretold that Fatima would join him first of all after his death 4. Before his death, the Messenger called his daughter Fatima to his bedside and informed her that she would be the first among his family to join him after hisdeath. Fatima joined her father, the pride of mankind, six months later. The Prophet predicted the Mongol invasion 5. The Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings, predicted the Mongol invasion, saying: The Hour will not come before you fight against a people with red faces, small, slant eyes and flat noses. They wear hairy leather boots . The Messenger predicted the caliphate of Abu Bakr and ‘Umar  6. As related by Hakim, Tirmidhi, Ibn Hanbal and Ibn Maja, by repeatedly declaring, You should, after my death, follow the way of Abu Bakr and ‘Umar  , theProphet, upon him be peace and blessings, meant that Abu Bakr and ‘Umar would succeed him as caliphs. He also predicted that Abu Bakr’s reign would be short,whereas ‘Umar would remain longer to be able to make many conquests. The Prophet predicted the conquest of many important cities 7. According to authentic narrations, the Prophet, upon him be peace and blessings, gave his community the glad tidings that they would conquer Damascus, Prophecies from Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.http://www.answering-christianity.com/prophecies_by_prophet_muhammad.ht4 of 1110/17/2014 1:52 PM
