Ahmed ,, أحمد

I received this picture on email , and I wanted to share it with you, It's about our Prophet Mohamad's name "Ahmed أحمد " , If you notice the positions we take in our prayers in order together looks like the word "أحمد" which is Ahmed.

Then I did some searches on google about something else I heard before , when they studied the old Gospel. and here is what I found ( copied and translated):

The word (Comforter) made a translation of the Greek word (Alberkulaitts), which son of Issac said about it : the Greek language is the senior of the Gospel.
And the Christians say today that in the Greek languages there are two phrases:

(1) Parakletos : which means the comforter
(2) Perekletos : which exactly has the same meaning as the arabic word " Ahmed"

Then they say : that which appeared in the Greek version of the Gospel is the first word , not the second and thus have no indication to what the Quran said that Jesus promises of Moahmmad may Allah bless him and his family , as in the Koranic verse ( and a harbinger of the messenger comes after me named ahmed )

هذه الصورة وصلتني على الإيميل .. لاحظوا أن حركات الصلاة بالترتيب : من التكبير إلى الركوع ثم السجود ثم الجلوس للتشهد ..تبدو كإسم الرسول عليه الصلاة و السلام " أحمد " .

ذكرني ما كان من الإيميل بما سمعته قبلا عن ذكر اسم الرسول " في الإنجيل" و هذا ما وجدت نقلاً:

لفظة (المعزي) جعلوها ترجمة للفظة الإغريقية (البرقليطس) التي قال عنها ابن إسحاق : أنّها باللغة الرّومية ، والإغريقية هي اللغة الأقدم للإنجيل .

: والنصارى اليوم يقولون أنّ في اللغة الإغريقية لفظتين

الأُولى : (باراكليتوس) (Parakletos) وتعني المعزّي ، المسلّي .

الثانية : (بيريكليتوس) (Perekletos) وتعني حرفياً ما تعنيه لفظة أحمد العربية .

ثم يقولون : إنّ الذي ورد في النسخة الإغريقية للإنجيل هو اللفظة الأُولى وليست الثانية وبالتالي فلا دلالة لها على ما ذكره القرآن أنّ عيسى كان قد بشّر بمحمد صلى الله عليه وآله كما في الآية الكريمة (وَمُبَشِّرًا بِرَسُول يَأْتِي مِنْ بَعْدِي اسْمُهُ أَحْمَدُ)الصف/6 .

Parakletos or Periklytos?
Are there any predictions of Muhammad outside the Qur'an? Have any of the previous Jewish and Christian Scriptures spoken about His coming? Some Muslims believe that in the Injil (John 16:7) there is reference to the prophecy mentioned in Sura 7:157 and again in Sura 61:6.

The commentary of Hamza, Vol. 1, pg.330 says: "We cannot give to this verse (Surah 7:157) all the commentary which it merits in light of the Old and New Testaments...John 16:7. All the misunderstanding which separates Jews, Christians and Muslims comes from the manner in which one pronounces or writes parakletos, which the translators of the gospel have rendered as 'counsellor.' Must we read it parakletos or periklytos?"

Muslims, aware that the original New Testament was written in Greek, choose the latter spelling, periklytos, which translates as 'glorious', over parakletos which means 'counsellor', or 'lawyer'. On the strength of the Qur'anic text (Sura 61:6) Muslims then claim that John 14:16 and 16:7 are predictions of the coming of Muhammad, and that the word periklytos (glorious), refers to Ahmad, a form of the name Muhammed, both meaning "the Praised one".


Greek Language Confirms Parakletos
What some Muslims have tried to do with this word is replace the vowels as they see fit (replacing the a-a-e-o in parakletos with e-i-y-o in periklytos). In Hebrew and in Arabic, where the vowels are not included in the words, there is room for debate as to which vowels the author intended. However this is not so in Greek, as all vowels are clearly written in all Greek texts.


Greek Manuscripts Confirm Parakletos
If in any doubt as to how this word is written, it is simple to review any of the existing manuscripts (MSS). They are open for anyone to examine (including two of the oldest, the Codex Siniaticus and the Codex Alexandrinus, both in the British Museum, in London). There are more than 70 Greek manuscripts of the New Testament dating from before the time of Muhammad. Not one of them uses the word periklytos! All use the word parakletos. In fact, the word periklytos does not even appear in the Bible!


Therefore, Muhammad could not be the Parakletos
At the heart of this argument, for a Muslim, is the desire to find any external prediction for the coming of Muhammad in both the Taurat and the Injil (as referred to in Sura 7:157). Without it, the only criteria for Muhammad's authority is the Qur'an; while the only authority for the Qur'an is Muhammad. This is circular reasoning, which is not a valid scholarly argument. Since the evidence for any prediction by Jesus concerning Muhammad does not exist in the Injil, this creates a problem for Muslims who must produce external criteria for the authenticity of their prophet.
