Nama Muhammad Saw dalam Song Of Solomon


Muhammad (pbuh) is mentioned by name in the Song of Solomon 5:16. The Hebrew word used in this verse is Mahamaddim. The ending letters `im' is a plural of respect, majesty and grandeur, Just as in Elohim (the God). Without `im' the name becomes Mahamadd which was translated as "altogether lovely" in the Authorized Version of the Bible or 'The Praised One', 'the one worthy of Praise.' In Arabic, Muhammad means the one who is most praised.


* Song of Solomon 5: 16

His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.

The phrase "he is altogether lovely" reads in the Hebrew as "he is Mahamaddim."


Haggai 2: 7 - 9

And I will shake all nations, and the Himada of all the nations will come; and I will fill this house with glory, says the Lord of hosts. Mine is the silver, mine is the gold, says the Lord of hosts, the glory of my last house shall be greater than that of the first one, says the Lord of hosts; and in this place I will give Shalom, says the Lord of Hosts.


(Quoted from Reference 4).

The Hebrew words Mahmad, Mahamod, Himdah, and Hemed appearing in the Old Testament and the Arabic words Muhammad and Ahmad are all derived from the same root "H, M and D," and refer to the same general meaning. These Hebrew words convey qualities as well as the person depending on the phrase used in the Old Testament. The Hebrew word Shalom and the Arabic word Salam have the same meaning - peace. They are derived from the root alphabets "S, L and M." Islam is also derived from the same root alphabets and means the path of peace.


Bhavishya Puran, Prati Sarg Parv III: 3, 3, Mantra 5

A malechha (belonging to a foreign country and speaking foreign language) spiritual teacher will appear with his companions. His name will be Mahamad...


Sama Veda II: 6, Mantra 8

"Ahmad acquired religious law (Shariah) from his Lord. This religious law is full of wisdom. I receive light from him just as from the sun."


Prophet Muhammad's other name was Ahmad (both are from root letters h, m and d),  both words have the meaning the "praised one" except the latter emphasizes a higher degree to it.


The Holy Qur'an states that Prophet 'Isa (Jesus, pbuh) mentioned the last prophet's name as Ahmad.


Epistle of Sasan I, Dasatir

When the Persians will do such deeds, a man from among the Arabs will be born whose followers shall overthrow and dissolve the kingdom and religion of the Persians

...Instead of the temple of fire and the house of idols they will see the House of Abraham without any idols as their Qibla.

...And they (Muslims) will be a mercy to the worlds.

...And their leader (Prophet Muhammad) will be an eloquent man whose words and message will be clear and far-reaching.

Maka tatkala Rasul itu datang kepada mereka dengan membawa bukti-bukti yang nyata, mereka berkata:"Ini adalah sihir yang nyata"
