In the New Testament, John the Baptist (peace be upon him) was asked, “Are you that prophet?” referring to a prophet other than the coming Messiah. The Old Testament speaks of those to come. The Prophet Muhammad ?, praised more than any other human being in history—by hundreds of millions of people every day—was foretold by many seers, sages, and prophets. This talk will look at some of the clear references as well as some of the more obscure ones which indicate that many knew of the advent of the last prophet to humanity. Celebrate with us the birth of the Chosen One, whose light and guidance still illuminate and direct countless souls fourteen hundred and fifty years later.
