Analysis of Deuteronomy 18: 18


We read the following words addressed to Moses in the Book of Deuteronomy Chapter 18: verse 18:

"I will raise them up a prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee ; and I will put my words in his mouth." (Deuteronomy 18: 18)

“A prophet from among their brethren” means from the brethren of the Jews, meaning the Arabs. Abraham had two sons. His first born son was Ishmael (from whom the Arabs descend) and a his second born son is Isaac (from whom Jews descend).

“Like unto thee” means the expected prophet will be like Moses. Jesus is not like Moses, but Mohammad صلى الله عليه وسلم  is like Moses.


Comparison between Moses, Muhammad and Jesus (Peace be upon them)

Comparison Title



صلى الله عليه وسلم


1. Father and Mother Moses had a father and a mother. Muhammad also had a father and a mother. But Jesus had only a mother, and no human father.
2. Birth Moses was born in the normal, natural course, i.e. by the physical association of man and woman. Muhammad was born in the normal, natural course, i.e. by the physical association of man and woman. But Jesus was created by a special miracle.
3. Marriage Moses married and begot children. Muhammad also married and begot children. But Jesus remained a bachelor all his life.
4. People's Acceptance Moses was accepted as a prophet by his people.

No doubt the Jews gave endless trouble to Moses and they murmured in the wilderness, but as a nation, as a whole, they acknowledged that Moses was a Messenger of God sent to them.

Muhammad was also accepted as a prophet by his people.

The Arabs of Mecca persecuted prophet Mohammad & his followers and he had to flee from the city of Mecca to Medina. However, by the time of his death, the Arab nation as a whole had accepted him as a Messenger of God.

But according to the Bible-

"He (Jesus) came unto his own, but his own received him not"

(John 1:11).

And even today, after more than two thousand years, Jesus' people (the Jews) still do not recognize him as a Messiah.

5. "Other-Worldly" Kingdom (the power or prerogative of inflicting capital punishment) Moses was a prophet as well as a king. Moses possessed the power of inflicting capital punishment. For example, the Israelite who was found picking up firewood on the Sabbath Day, Moses had him stoned to death. There are other crimes also mentioned in the Bible for which capital punishment was inflicted on the Jews at the behest of Moses  Muhammad was also a prophet as well as the head of the Islamic State.


Jesus claimed a spiritual kingdom only; in other words he only claimed to be a prophet. When Jesus was dragged before the Roman Governor, Pontius Pilate, charged for sedition, Jesus made a convincing point in his defence to refute the false charges: Jesus answered, "'My kingdom is not of this world': If my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews; but now is my kingdom not from hence". (John 18:36)
6. New Laws Moses brought new laws and new regulation to his people. Moses not only gave the Ten Commandments to the Israelites, but a very comprehensive ceremonial law for the guidance of his people. Muhammad also brought new laws and new regulations to his people based on the Quran.

He came to a people steeped in barbarism and ignorance. They married their step-mothers; they buried their daughters alive; drunkenness, adultery, idolatry and gambling were the order of the day.

From this abject barbarism, Muhammad elevated them, into torch-bearers of light and learning. Muhammad gave his people a Law and Order they never had before.

As regards Jesus, when the Jews felt suspicious of him that he might be an imposter with designs to pervert their teachings, Jesus took pains to assure them that he had not come with a new religion-no new laws and no new regulations. Jesus said: "Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil. For verily I say unto you, till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one title shall in no wise pass from the law, till all be fulfilled". (Matthew 5:17-18).
7. Departure Moses died a natural death. Muhammad also died a natural death. But according to Christianity, Jesus was violently killed on the cross.
8. Final Abode Moses lies buried in earth. Muhammad also lies buried in earth. But according to the Christians, Jesus rests in heaven.


“I will put my words in his mouth" describes perfectly how Mohammad صلى الله عليه وسلم  received revelation of the exact words of God in the form of the verses of the Quran. Whereas the Gospel was inspired by God, but not the exact/literal word of God.

If this verse does not apply to Prophet Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم , the prophecy in this verse will be unfulfilled. Prophet Jesus himself never claimed to be the Prophet alluded to in this verse. Even his disciples were of the same opinion: they looked to the second coming of Jesus for the fulfillment of this prophecy (Acts 3: 17-24). So far it is undisputed that the first coming of Jesus was not the advent of this anticipated prophet and his second advent can hardly fulfill the prophecy. Jesus, as is believed by his Church, will appear as a Judge and not as a law-giver; but the promised one has to come with a "fiery law" in "his right hand."

Muhammad Asad (formerly known as Leopold Weiss), a Jewish scholar who converted to Islam said:

The 'brethren' of the children of Israel are obviously the Arabs, and particularly the Musta'ribah ('Arabianized') group among them, which traces its descent to Ishmael and Abraham: and since it is this group that the Arabian Prophet's own tribe, the Quraish, belonged, the above biblical passages must be taken as referring to his advent."
