Muhammad is mentioned in the Bible and me too

Muslims love lies. They will cling to any absurdity to confirm that their faith is true.

A Muslim sent me the following video to prove that Muhammad is mentioned in the Bible.

I watched it and I felt sorry how these people are gullible and naïf.

The claim is that the chapter 5:16, of the Song of Songs, mentions Muhammad.

The chapter 5:16, of the Song of Songs, does not mention Muhammad. The Hebrew word mahamaddim that occurs in this verse means “delights,” “delightfulnesses” and it has nothing to do with Muhammad.

Using the same absurd reasoning that Muslims use to prove the Bible mentions Muhammad by name I have found that the Bible in many places mentions me by name too. In fact there are hundreds of references to my names, Ali and Sina in the Bible. In the following biblical verses I have highlighted my name for all the doubters to see.

Genesis 45:26 They told him, “Joseph is still alive!

Colossians 1:21  And you, that were sometime alienated and enemies in your mind

Exodus 19:20
And the LORD came down upon Mount Sinai, 

There you have it. If Muhammad is mentioned once in the entire Bible, my both names are mentioned hundreds of times. That is not all, I can find my name mentioned in pretty much every book written. Is this a miracle or what?

This is how Muhammad is mentioned in the verse 5:16 of the Song of Songs. Do you see how pathetic Muslims can be? Are these people not embarassed? All the so called miracles of Islam are of this kind.

The verse does not talk about Muhammad any more than the above verses talk about me. The translation of the verse is:

his mouth is sweets                             Hkw mmtqym
and all of him is delights                     wklw mHmdym
this is my love                                     zh dwdy
and this is my darling                          wzh r`y
daughters of Jerusalem                        bnwt yrwshlm

Here is how responds to this inane claim.

The Hebrew word mHmdym is a common, and not a proper noun (i.e. not a name).

The same word occurs again as a common noun in Hosea 9:6,16; 1 Kings 20:6; Lamentations 1:10,11; 2:4; Isaiah 64:10; 2 Chronicles 36:19; Ezekiel 24:16,21,25. In the last passage (Ezekiel 24:16, “the desire of thine eyes”) it is applied to a woman, Ezekiel’s wife (compare verse 18), and to the sons and daughters of the idolatrous Jews (verse 25). It would be just as wise to apply the word to Muhammad HERE as in the Song of Songs.

In Arabic many words are formed from the same root, but they do not on that account denote Muhammad. An ignorant Muslim might just as well assert that Muhammad’s name occurred in Surah 1, Al Fatihah, verse 1: Al hamdo lillahi Rabbi ‘lalamin (“Praise be to God, the Lord of the worlds”). In the same way a Hindu might assert that the name of Ram or some other of his deities was mentioned in the Qur’an, because in Sura 30, Ar-Rum, verse 1, we read ” the Romans have been overcome,” where Arabic dictionaries give “Rum” as if derived from the root “ram”. This kind of argument is unworthy of men of learning and judgment.

A newsgroup article in regard to that:

Song of Songs 5:16 is no more a reference to Muhammad than it is to Mumattaq or to David. Finding the name of Muhammad is child’s play. Because Arabic and Hebrew share a cognate word [Hmd], there are of course several other similar occurrences in the Hebrew scriptures. The New Bantam-Megiddo Hebrew & English Dictionary lists…
Hmd (yHmwd) p                     covet, lust after
Hmd z                                     delight, loviness
Hmdh n                                   desire, object of desire
Hmdnwt                                  covetousness, lustfulness

It is also interesting to note: Many Muslims are “outraged” that something like the Song of Songs by Solomon which is a love song and sometimes very open in its erotic language could be part of the Word of God, the Bible. But then, they completely “forget” this argument and try to find in the middle of this very same love poem expressing this woman’s desire for her lover the name of Muhammad and are not the least embarrassed by this. Have a look at the whole context of Song of Songs 5-6. The argument goes: This should not be in the Bible, such erotic language is unworthy of the Word of God, but it is a prophecy of Muhammad nevertheless.

A further problem is that even though Muslims need to find Muhammad mentioned because the Qur’an claims so, the Song of Songs is neither part of the Torah nor the Gospel, so that this verse wouldn’t help at all to satisfy this demand of the Qur’an even if it were to speak about Muhammad.
