Can readers of this very blog find Mohammed predicted in the Song of Solomon, “Yes!” answer my Muslim friends, to be candid however, they’re grasping desperately by way of such an argument as that which we are about to hear.
Popular Muslim speaker Dr. Zakir Naik claims that Muhammad’s name can be found in Song of Solomon 5:16, which reads: “His mouth is full of sweetness. And he is wholly desirable. This is my beloved and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.” According to Zakir Naik, since the Hebrew word translated as “wholly desirable” (machmadim) sounds like “Muhammad,” the word should actually be translated as “Muhammad.” Yet if we follow Naik’s reasoning, we must conclude that since the Hebrew word for mouse is “akbar,” we should translate “Allahu Akbar” as “Allah is a mouse”! Why aren’t Muslims embarrassed that their top apologists are using such silly reasoning?
