View Full Version : Isaiah 21 is a Prophecy about Hijrah and Rise of Islam (Muhammad ﷺ)

Assalamu 'alaykum dear brothers and sisters, I was reading Isaiah 21 and was shocked to find a Prophecy about our Prophet in it and it seems as not many have picked up on it.
The chapter starts by prophesizing the fall of Babylon, and then prophesizes the fall of the Persian Empire (whom fell by the hands of Khalid Ibn Walid Rahimullah) and then explicitly about Prophet Muhammad (ﷺ):

Verse 11-12 is about the fall of the Persin Empire:
Proclamation Against Edom
11 The [d]burden against Dumah.
He calls to me out of Seir,
“Watchman, what of the night?
Watchman, what of the night?”
12 The watchman said,
“The morning comes, and also the night.
If you will inquire, inquire;
Return! Come back!”

It is well known that the Persian Empire fell by the hands of Khalid Ibn Walid (Rahimullah).

Verse 13-14 is about Muhammad ﷺ:
Proclamation Against Arabia
13 The burden against Arabia.
In the forest in Arabia you will lodge,
O you traveling companies of Dedanites.
14 O inhabitants of the land of Tema,
Bring water to him who is thirsty;
With their bread they met him who fled.
15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword,
From the bent bow, and from the distress of war.
16 For thus the Lord has said to me: “Within a year, according to the year of a hired man, all the glory of Kedar will fail;
17 and the remainder of the number of archers, the mighty men of the people of Kedar, will be diminished; for the Lord God of Israel has spoken it.”

- "The inhabitants of the land of Tema": The Land of Tema, Te'-ma or Tema Arabic: تيماء and Thaiman is a place mentioned in the Bible where the descendants of Ishmael's son Tema dwelt, which is Arabia.
- "Bring water to him who is thirsty": This is about the miraculous Zamzam water that to this day stands as an Islamic miracle whom none can deny.
- "With their bread they met him who fled": This is about Hijrah of our beloved Prophet (ﷺ)
- "For they fled from the swords": this is about Qurays who wanted to kill our prophet (ﷺ) who made Hijrah
- "all the glory of Kedar will fail: The descendants of Kedar": The Kedarites were another nomadic Arabic people, just like their cousins, the Nabataeans. They occupied the desert regions of eastern Syria and present day Jordan, on the edge of the Levant. And according to recorded history, they only fell by the sword with the rise of Islam. So trying to interpret this otherwise is impossible because you would have to argue that a time machine will be invented and that someone would go back in time and make them fall by the sword again if you want to interpret it otherwise.

This is a clear cut Prophecy about Prophet Muhammad and Islam

P.S What is very hillarious is that we can now indeed bring up the Bible once the christians claim that Islam was spread by the sword, we can simply bring up this verse:

"15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn sword,
From the bent bow, and from the distress of war."

And directly argue that it indeed was in self defense because the Muslims were subjugated by the oppressors, EVEN ACCORDING TO THEIR OWN BOOK.

This is beyond the shadow of a doubt about the rise of Islam and Muhammad (ﷺ) and Khalid Ibn Walid. Isaiah is known to prophecy about Muhammad numerous times in his chapters, and this chapter indeed is one of them. Similarly, there is another verse where Isaiah prophesized Khalid Ibn Walid:

Zechariah 9:13"I will bend Judah as I bend my bow and fill it with Ephraim. I will rouse your sons, Zion, against your sons, Greece, and make you like a warrior’s sword."

Many translations write "O Jerusalem" here instead of "Zion" because they believe that Zion is Jerusalem, but we know all too well that Zion is the daughter of Jerusalem and that Jerusalem is the sister of Zion, according to the Bible itself, and plus they are mentioned as two distinct cities in numerous verses in the Bible:

Isaiah 64:10:
'Your holy cities are destroyed. Zion is a wilderness; yes, Jerusalem is a desolate ruin."

Zion is Makkah, and it was a wilderness at that time. Jerusalem was (at the time of this verse) a desolate ruin. The plural is there is "cities", so do not let the deceivers deceive you about Zion because it is absolutely NOT Jerusalem. Moreover, the Bible EXPLICITLY states that the Word of God (I.e. Jesus) will come from Jerusalem, and THE LAW (I.e. Qur'an, Shari'ah, another Torah) from Zion:

Isaiah 2:2-4:
"Now it will come about that, In the last days, The mountain of the house of the Lord, Will be established as the chief of the mountains, And will be raised above the hills; And all the nations will stream to it. And many peoples will come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord, To the house of the God of Jacob.... For the law will go forth from Zion And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem. And He will judge between the nations, And will render decisions for many peoples; And they will hammer their swords into plowshares and their spears into pruning hooks. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they learn war."

All Islamic Prophecies from these 3 verses:

These few verses prophesize all of what happened with the rise of Islam:

  • The chief mountain: Mountain Hira
  • All nations will stream to it: This can only be applied to Islam. No nation streams to a christian or jewish mountain today
  • "To the house of the God of Jacob": Read this article to come to find that the black stone of the Ka'bah is the stone that Jacob found and slept on and this very place became known as "Betel" (I.e. Baytullah, the Ka'bah)
  • For the law will go forth from Zion: This is the Shar'iah (I.e. the other Torah, the Qur'an) that also was prophesized in Isaiah 51:4.

“Give attention to me, my people, and give ear to me, my nation; for a law (literally: תוֹרָה֙ (ṯō·w·rāh) will go out from me, and I will set my justice for a light to the peoples."
5. And the word of the Lord from Jerusalem: This is about Jesus the Messiah (ﷺ), and this verse also proves yet again that Zion and Jerusalem are not one and the same city.
6. And He will judge between the nations: only Muhammad (ﷺ) did this, all other prophets were sent to their nations.
7. "Nation will not lift up sword against nation, And never again will they learn war", this goes to show that A: Yes they will use the sword because the verse says "never again", so it will start by the sword, but B: it will lead to them never again having to use the sword, which indeed took place, after the rise of Islam, the sword was indeed hammered into plowshares and spears into pruning hooks. The end of the ancient wars happened with the rise of Islam as we know it.
Allahu akbar!! Rejoice ya Muslimun, know that you indeed are the nation the other Prophets highly spoke about :D <3
