My Muslim friend, the one who recently tracked me down on facebook attempted to force me to question my faith through his claim that Mohamed is mentioned in the song of songs.
It is absolutely vital as Christians we do our best to debunk these claims and just as I am doing now making this public. I do this because I love our Muslim brothers, it is not my aim to insult anyone, just to point out the truth.
This article is in two parts, the first part is from the Muslim perspective. The second part is my answer.
Muslim perspective (his argument):
Mohammad command Christians to follow the Bible i, 2:89 it’s the quoran he’s speaking about not the bible
7:157..comon..that’s a argument against you !!
Those who follow the Apostle-Prophet, the Ummi, whom they find written down with them in the Taurat and the Injeel (mohamed (PBU him ) is written in your true bible like the quran says and you can see that and listen to his name in the original language of the bible which is hebrew…i swear you will listen to his name and read it translated and whe nyou finish i tell you the meaning of the other verses from the quoran..you have to see this your self first..
Here’s the direct link of ” Song of Songs Chapter 5 : 16 ” from an official hebrew bible
And you can check by typing ” original hebrew bible ” on google and go to the first site which is this one
Listen to this Chapter in Hebrew ” just up the page you find the audio part..and i want you to concentrate on the time 2:30 of the audio chapter you will listen to :
Hiko mamtakim vé khulo **mohamadim **, zé dodi vé zé réi, bnot yarushalaim
MOHAMADIM meaning Mohamed the great, and that -im is the plural ending in Hebrew but it’s a plural of majesty in hibrew like élohim (plural of eloah) adonaï (plural of adon)
Now Go to this online hebrew dictionary which is the first on google when you search for ” hebrew dictionary ”
put the word ” mohamadim ” we’re talking about and that you heard and you can find it written in hebrew among the complet verses which is מַחֲמַדִּ
then look to the 3rd Wikipedia translation,the name of the prophet ” Muhammad”, “Mehmet” or ” محمد” in arabic is very clair and obvious !
Gaz Parkers answer:
The term is מחמדים (with vowels: מַחֲמַדִּים, pronounced: machmadim) and it is a plural form of the word מחמד (machmad) means something precious, or beloved, in Hebrew.
The word machmad in Hebrew comes from the root CH.M.D, the root of words such as “coveted”, “delightful”, “delightful”, “desirable”…
In Arabic, the root CH.M.D is the root of words such as “praised”, “decent”, “praiseworthy” etc, and this is also the root of the name Muhammad.
The sentence “חִכּוֹ, מַמְתַקִּים, וְכֻלּוֹ, מַחֲמַדִּים” (Chico, mamtakim, vechulo, machmadim) was translated as: “His mouth is most sweet; yea, he is altogether lovely”.
