Question 4: The prophets of the Old Testament promised the coming of Jesus pbuh, so where is the promise concerning Muhammad pbuhap in it, if he is the possessor of the eternal religion?
Answer: Is it required that there be a promise with the direct name or the symbol?! I believe that the issue of the absence of Jesus or Yeshua’s name in the Old Testament, as a promised one, is a concluded matter . Thus nothing remains but the symbol . And we have clarified symbolic passages from the Old Testament whose interpretation refers to the Messenger Muhammad pbuhap, just as they have interpreted symbolic passages as referring to Jesus pbuh .
And before showing some of these passages, I say:
We clarified the evidence for the Proof or Vicegerent of Allah on His earth or the sent prophet and we proved it through (or with if through is incorrect) reasoning, wisdom, and the passages from the Torah, Gospel and Quran .
So whoever requests the truth from among the People of the Book, like the Jews and the Christians, should observe the law of recognizing the vicegerent which we clarified, and its three clauses: the will or text, knowledge and wisdom, and the banner or the supremacy of Allah; and let him observe whether reasoning or wisdom say otherwise .
Also, let him turn the pages of the Torah and see, have the messen- gers left wills mentioning those who succeed them or have they not?
And these are some passages as an example of the wills of the prophets mentioning the one who succeeds them: 
Deuteronomy Chapter 31:
 And the Lord said to Moses, “Behold, the days approach when you must die . Call Joshua and present yourselves in the tent of meet- ing, that I may commission him .” And Moses and Joshua went and presented themselves in the tent of meeting .  And the Lord appeared in the tent in a pillar of cloud . And the pillar of cloud stood over the entrance of the tent .
Deuteronomy Chapter 33:
 This is the blessing with which Moses the man of God blessed the Children of Israel before his death .  He said, “The Lord came from Sinai and dawned from Seir upon us; he shone forth from Mount Paran (Faran); he came from the ten thousands of holy ones, with flaming fire at his right hand .  Yes, he loved his people, all his holy ones were in his hand; so they followed in your steps, receiving direction from you”] [*5]
And 1 Kings Chapter 1:
 King David said, “Call to me Zadok the priest, Nathan the prophet, and Benaiah the son of Jehoiada .” So they came before the king .  And the king said to them, “Take with you the servants of your lord and have Solomon my son ride on my own mule, and bring him down to Gihon .  And let Zadok the priest and Nathan the prophet there anoint him king over Israel . Then blow the trumpet and say, ‘Long live King Solomon!’  You shall then come up after him, and he shall come and sit on my throne, for he shall be king in my place . And I have appointed him to be ruler over Israel and over Judah .”  And Benaiah the son of Jehoiada answered the king, “Amen! May the Lord, the God of my lord the king, say so .  As the Lord has been with my lord the king, even so may he be with Solomon, and make his throne greater than the throne of my lord King David .”]
And 1 Kings Chapter 2:
 When David’s time to die drew near, he commanded Solomon his son, saying,  “I am about to go the way of all the earth . Be strong, and show yourself a man,  and keep the charge of the Lord your God, walking in his ways and keeping his statutes, his commandments, his rules, and his testimonies, as it is written in the Law of Moses, that you may prosper in all that you do and wherever you turn,  that the Lord may establish his word that he spoke concerning me, saying, ‘If your sons pay close attention to their way, to walk before me in faithfulness with all their heart and with all their soul, you shall not lack a man on the throne of Israel .’”[*6]
And let them also consider:
Have the sent prophets used their knowledge as proof, and the fact that they speak with wisdom, or have they not? 
And have the prophets demanded the supremacy of Allah in the Torah or have they not? 
And let them look at what Moses did with those who believed in him and accepted him, it was only to have them migrate from the land of the tyrant in order to apply the supremacy of Allah upon them in another land .
Therefore, the issue is settled for every intellectual one who seeks the truth, and it does not go beyond the law which we have clarified and proved through reasoning and texts from the three divine religions .
And Muhammad pbuhap came with the will and the text from those before him, as in the Torah and the Gospel, and he came with knowledge and wisdom, and with the banner of allegiance to Allah or the supremacy of Allah which he demanded . And Allah wished for him to apply it on a spot of this earth .
And this is an example of the text that mentions the Messenger of Allah Muhammad pbuhap in the Old Testament:
Genesis Chapter 21:
 So Abraham rose early in the morning and took bread and a skin of water and gave it to Hagar, putting it on her shoulder, along with the child, and sent her away . And she departed and wandered in the wilderness of Beersheba .  When the water in the skin was gone, she put the child under one of the bushes .  Then she went and sat down opposite him a good way off, about the distance of a bowshot, for she said, “Let me not look on the death of the child .” And as she sat opposite him, she lifted up her voice and wept .  And God heard the voice of the boy, and the angel of God called to Hagar from heaven and said to her, “What troubles you, Hagar? Fear not, for God has heard the voice of the boy where he is .  Up! Lift up the boy, and hold him fast with your hand, for I will make him into a great nation .”  Then God opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water . And she went and filled the skin with water and gave the boy a drink .  And God was with the boy, and he grew up . He lived in the wilderness and became an expert with the bow .  He lived in the wilderness of Paran] .
And I do not believe a rational person would say that according to Allah the disbelievers, polytheists and idol worshippers are a great nation, or that Allah considers the multitudes to be a great nation . So what is intended by a great nation — and the greatness belongs to Allah swt — is the prophets and successors pbut, meaning that what is in- tended by the great nation of Ishmael pbuh is prophets and successors pbut from his lineage, and those are Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad pbut in particular, the vicegerents of Allah on His earth . 
This is an example of the text that mentions the Messenger of Allah Muhammad pbuhap in the Old and New Testament (the Torah and the Gospel):
Habakkuk Chapter 3:
 A prayer of Habakkuk the prophet, according to Shigionoth .  O Lord, I have heard the report of you,
and your work, O Lord, do I fear . In the midst of the years revive it; in the midst of the years make it known; in wrath remember mercy .  God came from Teman, [*11] and the Holy One from Mount Paran. Selah His splendor covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise . 4His brightness was like the light; rays flashed from his hand;
and there he veiled his power . Before him went pestilence, and plague followed at his heels .]
[God came from Teman]: meaning God (Allah) came from Yemen . And [the Holy One from Mount Paran]: meaning the Holy One came from Mecca .
And Allah is far above coming from the sky, let alone from the earth, because coming and going require movement and therefore occurrence, and thus negating the absolute divinity, so it cannot be considered that the one who comes from Teman or Yemen is Allah swt, or that the one who comes from Paran is the Holy One swt; for this as well as the other attributes such as the hand, which Allah is far above . [His brightness was like the light; rays flashed from his hand; and there he veiled his power . Before him went pestilence, and plague followed at his heels .]
Rather the one who comes is the Servant of Allah Muhammad pbuhap and his progeny pbut after him, as they are from Mecca, and Muhammad and his progeny pbut are Yamanis as well . So the coming of Muhammad pbuhap is the coming of Allah because Muhammad is Allah among the creation, and Muhammad is the appearance of Allah in Paran as I previously clarified in more than one place .
And the fact that Teman is Yemen has been mentioned even in the Gospel in the words of Jesus pbuh when he described the Queen of Yemen as the Queen of the South (or Teman) .
Matthew Chapter 12:
 The queen of the South will rise up at the judgment with this generation and condemn it, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon, and behold, something greater than Solomon is here .]
Luke Chapter 11:
 The queen of the South will rise up at the judgment with the men of this generation and condemn them, for she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Solomon .]
And the knowledge and the wisdom brought by Muhammad pbuhap in the Quran, every just person would still say that it is overwhelming wisdom that cannot come except from Him swt . 
Also, Muhammad pbuhap demanded the supremacy of Allah . Moreover, when he had the opportunity, he applied the supremacy of Allah and clearly stated that the truth exists within the supremacy of Allah and that all Muslim sects which leave the supremacy of Allah are misguided sects . And the narration of the saved sect is more famous than fire on a flag, and it is well-known in the Sunni books: ﴾This nation will divide into 73 sects, all of them will be in the hellfire save one .” They said, “O Messenger of Allah! And which one will that be?” He replied, “The one which is upon what I and my companions are upon today .”﴿ 
Therefore, the description of the saved sect is that it consists of a leader appointed by Allah, as was the Messenger of Allah pbuhap, and believers in this divine leadership, as were the companions of the Mes- senger of Allah pbuhap .
What remains is the issue of specious arguments and controversy, as one says why did Muhammad do this, and why did he say that, and if he was a messenger he would not have said this and he would not have done that, and the Quran contradicts the Arabic grammar, and [other] specious arguments which can direct themselves toward any
other messenger or any other book or any other divine religion, and they are refuted arguments .
Whereas we must note that the one who shifts to such arguments before he responds to the proof, refutes it and shows that it is not a proof, he in reality acknowledges the proof and the ideology which he argues upon and he validates it . Moreover, by his specious argument, he is in the process of clarifying the ideology and manifesting it . This is because the specious arguments do not go beyond being specious arguments that are refuted and of no real value except to be a disparag- ing tyrannical tool used by the clerics of misguidance and tyrants to disparage their followers and maintain them upon the path of blindly following and imitating them, in order to maintain their positions and worldly life .
And after their false ideology is demolished and all their specious arguments fall, they return to the most petty specious argument, with the goal of stirring the emotions of their followers toward their fathers and ancestors . And it is the specious argument of Pharaoh against Moses, the prophet of Allah pbuh, where Pharaoh said: ﴾“Then what is the case of the former generations?”﴿ Surat Ta Ha (20:51 )هه, so the answer of Moses pbuh was: ﴾“The knowledge thereof is with my Lord in a  .20:52 )هه( record . My Lord neither errs nor forgets .”﴿ . Surat Ta Ha
 For instance, one of the main passages mentioned by the Christians that promises Jesus pbuh in the Old Testament is Isaiah 7:14, but it is eventually a symbol and does not include the pronouncement of a name . Concerning the pronouncement of Jesus’ name, interpreter Dr . William MacDonald said, “At that time, the angel announced the sex of the child who will be born, his name and his mission, and that is that Mary was to give birth to a son and she will name him Jesus (Yeshua) which means ‘Yahweh (the Lord) is the salvation’ or ‘Yahweh (the Lord) is the Savior’, as he will save his people from their sins just like his name will be announced .” And concerning the prophecy of Isaiah, he says, “The prophecy of Isaiah 7:14 included the prophecy of a unique birth: ﴾The virgin shall conceive﴿ and the sex of the child: ﴾and bear a son﴿, and the name of the child: ﴾and shall call his name Emmanuel﴿ . And Matthew added and said, ﴾Emmanuel (which means ‘God with us’)﴿ . And there is no proof that indicates that the Lord Jesus was called Emmanuel during his time on the earth, as he was always called Jesus .” Emmaus Bible College . Thus it is made clear that “Emmanuel” is a symbol interpreted to be “Jesus” . However, his name was not directly pronounced in the Old Testament .
 Imam Ahmad al-Hassan pbuh clarified the Law of recognizing the vicegerents of Allah on His earth in many of his published books, and in this book he indicated some of the pas- sages from the Torah and the Gospel as well . And concerning the Quran he pbuh said, “The requisite of divine wisdom is to place a law to recognize the vicegerent of Allah on His earth in every time . And it must be that this law was made from the first day on which Allah swt placed a vicegerent for Him on His earth . So it cannot be that this law came in one of the messages of the sky that came after the first day, because there were people tested on the first day . And I do not mention that the fact certain to everyone is the existence of Iblis as a tested one since the first day . And the tested one needs this law to recognize the carrier of the divine truth, otherwise, and as an excuse for why he did not follow the carrier of the divine truth, he would say that he could not recognize and that he does not have a divine law to recognize this vicegerent appointed by Allah swt .
And the fact certain for everyone concerning the history of the first day on which Allah made a vicegerent for Him on His earth is:
1 . Allah pronounced Adam and that he is His vicegerent on His earth in the presence of the angels and Iblis .
2 . After Allah created Adam, he taught him all the names .
3 . Allah then commanded those who worshipped him at the time, the angels and Iblis, to prostrate to Adam .”
He pbuh then mentioned the verses from Suratal-Baqara(verse 30 and onwards) which clarify this .Refer to Enlightenments from the Calls of the Messengers, Vol . 3 by Imam Ahmad al-Hassan .
 Imam Ahmad al-Hassan pbuh says concerning the law of recognizing the vicegerent, from the perspective of reasoning and wisdom, “Moreover, simply, any human being who owns a factory or a farm or a ship or anything with workers who work in it for him, he must appoint for them a person from among them who leads them, and he must declare him by name other- wise chaos would spread . And he must be their most knowledgeable and best one, and he must command them to obey him in order to achieve what he hopes for . Otherwise, if this person falls short on any of these three matters he would be siding wisdom with foolishness, so how do the people make it acceptable that Allah would disregard any of these three matters, while He is the Absolute Wise?” Ibid .
 One would notice that the mentioned texts are of two types:
The first type is the direct statement from the vicegerent of Allah directly mentioning the one who succeeds him, such as the first, third and fourth example in the statement of Moses mentioning his successor Joshua, and the statement of David mentioning his vicegerent Solomon . And the second type is the indirect statement, meaning the statement from the divine vicegerent mentioning the one who comes after him even if after a period of time, such as the second example. And it is obvious that either of the two types is sufficient in proving the righteousness of the vicegernt of Allah when the vicegerent clarifies his righteousness to the people, and we saw the statements of the clerics of the Church concerning how the text of Isaiah and his glad tidings of the child of Mary are sufficient in proving the righteousness of Jesus pbuh . And the Quran confirms this is well, the Almighty said, ﴾And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, “O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing glad tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is Ahmad .”﴿ Surat as-Saff (The Ranks) 61:6, although Ahmad pbuhap is not the direct vicegerent of Jesus pbuh .
 The text mentioned the Lord’s coming, dawning and shining in specific places (Sinai, Seir and Paran) and the Absolute God is far above the acts of coming and going which obligate being created, so it can only be said that this is through His manifestation and appearance through particular ones from His creation . And now, if we move past Sinai which was the place of appearance of the glory of the Lord to Moses pbuh, let us learn about His dawning and ap- pearance in Seir (which is Jerusalem and its surroundings), so the truth is that this never hap- pened at the time of Moses pbuh, and the clerics of the Church consider the prophecy which mentions Seir to be a matter of the future and a symbolic text of Jesus pbuh .
As for Paran (which is Mecca and its surroundings), Ishmael pbuh grew up there and built the Holy Kaaba with his father, which was where he and his children lived . And from Paran was the appearance of the Messenger of Allah Muhammad pbuhap, and this will be clarified further once the latter text is clarified .
Imam Ahmad al-Hassan pbuh said, “In the ‘Dua of Semat’ narrated from the Imams pbut, ‘ ... And I ask you my Lord ... by Your glory that appeared on Mount Sinai, that You spoke through to Your servant and messenger Moses son of Imran pbuh, by the rise of You in Mount Seir, and the appearance of You in the Mount of Faran .” The rise of Allah in Mount Seir is through Jesus pbuh, and the appearance of Allah in Mount Paran is through Muham- mad pbuhap .
It is essential to notice that the phrases of the dua are ranked in an ascending order, from a prophet whom Allah spoke to that is Moses pbuh, to a prophet exemplifying the rise of Al- lah that is Jesus pbuh, to a prophet exemplifying the appearance of Allah that is Muhammad pbuhap .” The Sealing Prophethood, Imam Ahmad al-Hassan .
 This divine way (the wills of the vicegerents of Allah pronouncing those who come after them) is clear in the mentioned passages which the Jews and Christians believe in; it has indeed been confirmed by the Quran as well . The Almighty said, ﴾And Abraham instructed his sons [to do the same] and [so did] Jacob, [saying], “O my sons, indeed Allah has chosen this religion for you, so do not die except while you are Muslims .”﴿ Surat al-Baqara (The Cow) 2:132 . And He swt said, ﴾Prescribed upon you when death approaches one of you that he leaves a will, a bequest for the parents and near relatives according to what is acceptable — a duty upon the pious .﴿ Surat al-Baqara (The Cow) 2:180 . And Muhammad pbuhap practiced it; at the time of his death, he made clear in his will who the vicegerents of Allah after him are, and he mentioned all of them by name .
 Here, we mention some passages from the Holy Quran and the Bible as proof, Jo- seph pbuh using knowledge and wisdom as proof in interpreting the vision of the Pharaoh of Egypt, [And Pharaoh said to Joseph, “I have had a dream, and there is no one who can interpret it . I have heard it said of you that when you hear a dream you can interpret it .” Joseph answered Pharaoh, “It is not in me; God will give Pharaoh a favorable answer .”] Genesis 41:15-16 . He then said, [Now therefore let Pharaoh select a discerning and wise man, and set him over the land of Egypt .] Genesis 41:33 . And likewise was the vision of Nebuchadnezzar which the claimants of knowledge were incapable of interpreting, so he became very upset and angry . And after Daniel pbuh interpreted it for him, he said to him, [The Great God has made known to the king what shall be after this . The dream is certain, and its interpretation sure .” Then King Nebuchadnezzar fell upon his face and paid homage to Daniel, and commanded that an offering and incense be offered up to him .] Daniel 2:45-46 .
The knowledge and wisdom of Jesus pbuh, [and coming to his hometown he taught them in their synagogue, so that they were astonished, and said, “Where did this man get this wis- dom and these mighty works? Is this not the carpenter’s son? Is not his mother called Mary?”] Matthew 13:54-55 . And the passages in the Bible are numerous . As for in the Quran, there are numerous verses as well, as Abraham pbuh was recognized due to his knowledge and wisdom, ﴾“O my father, indeed there has come to me of knowledge which has not come to you, so fol- low me; I will guide you to an even path .”﴿ Surat Maryam (Mary) 19:43 . And Moses pbuh,﴾And when he attained his full strength and was mature, We bestowed upon him judgement and knowledge . And thus do We reward the doers of good .﴿Surat al-Qasas (The Story) 28:14 . And Jesus pbuh, ﴾And when Jesus brought clear proofs, he said, “I have come to you with wis- dom and to make clear to you some of that over which you differ, so fear Allah and obey me .﴿ Surat az-Zukhruf (Ornaments of Gold) 43:63 . And Muhammad pbuhap, ﴾It is He who has sent among the Ummiyeen [i .e people of Umm al-Qura] a Messenger from themselves reciting to them His verses and purifying them and teaching them the Book and Wisdom, although they were before in clear misguidance .﴿ Surat al-Jumua (Friday) 62:2 .
 A brief definition of the supremacy of Allah is: that legislation is in the hands of Allah swt and also assigning the one who implements it, and for this reason, the vicegerents of Allah were all assigned from Allah and the people were never allowed to interfere, and the obliga- tion of the people toward these vicegerents is obedience and submission, and the following are examples from the Old Testament to indicate this, Moses pbuh said, [14“When you come to the land that the Lord your God is giving you, and you possess it and dwell in it and then say, ‘I will set a king over me, like all the nations that are around me,’ 15you may indeed set a king over you whom the Lord your God will choose . One from among your brothers you shall set as king over you . You may not put a foreigner over you, who is not your brother .”] Deuteronomy Chapter 17 .
And for Joshua pbuh, [1After the death of Moses the servant of the Lord, the Lord said to Joshua the son of Noon, Moses’ assistant ... 10And Joshua commanded the officers of the people ... 13“Remember the word that Moses the servant of the Lord commanded you, saying, ‘The Lord your God is providing you a place of rest and will give you this land .’” ... 16And they answered Joshua, “All that you have commanded us we will do, and wherever you send us we will go . 17Just as we obeyed Moses in all things, so we will obey you . Only may the Lord your God be with you, as he was with Moses! 18Whoever rebels against your commandment and disobeys your words, whatever you command him, shall be put to death . Only be strong and courageous .”] Joshua Chapter 1 .
And similar to that was stated by the Quran in many verses, the Almighty said, ﴾Say, “O Allah, Owner of Sovereignty, You give sovereignty to whom You will and You take sovereignty away from whom You will . You honor whom You will and You humble whom You will . In Your hand is [all] good . Indeed, You are over all things competent .”﴿ Surat Aal-e-Imran(The Family of Imran) 3:26, and he said, ﴾“Indeed, I am making upon the earth a vicegerent .”﴿ Surat al-Baqara (The Cow) 2:30, ﴾Or do they envy people for what Allah has given them of His bounty? But we had already given the family of Abraham the Scripture and wisdom and conferred upon them a great kingdom .﴿ Surat an-Nisa (The Women) 4:54 .
 And he promised them that if they were to obey him, they would be a holy nation, [“5Now therefore, if you will indeed obey my voice and keep my covenant, you shall be my treasured possession among all peoples, for all the earth is mine; 6and you shall be to me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation .”] Exodus Chapter 19 . But they rebelled against him and refused his commands, and the result of this disobedience was that Allah punished them with the wilderness, for forty years . “Surely none of the men who came up out of Egypt, from twenty years old and upward, shall see the land that I swore to give to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, because they have not wholly followed me, [ 12]none except Caleb the son of Jephunneh the Kenizzite and Joshua the son of Nun, for they have wholly followed the Lord .” And the Lord’s anger was kindled against Israel, and he made them wander in the wilderness forty years, until all the generation that had done evil in the sight of the Lord was gone .] Numbers Chapter 32 .
Imam Ahmad al-Hassan pbuh said, “And the result of this punishment and reformatory wilderness was the emergence of a good lordly nation, and they are the children of these cor- rupt ones and their grandchildren, and they carried the word of ‘There is no god but Allah’ with Joshua son of Noon the successor of Moses pbuh, and they fought the oppressors and tyrants and they supported the religion of Allah on His earth .” The Calf Vol . 1, Imam Ahmad al-Hassan .
 And no one could imagine that it was the entire nation of the Children of Israel who was intended by the “Great Nation”, because it is mentioned in Numbers 14, [And the Lord said to Moses, “How long will this people despise me? And how long will they not believe in me, in spite of all the signs that I have done among them? I will strike them with the pestilence and disinherit them, and I will make of you a nation greater and mightier than they .”] Numbers 14:11-12 . And from the Bible, we mention an example of whom Allah swt considered great, [And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Mary, for you have found favor with God . And behold, you will conceive in your womb and bear a son, and you shall call his name Jesus . He will be great and will be called the Son of the Most High . And the Lord God will give to him the throne of his father David .”] Luke 1:30-32 . And such greatness was mentioned for John the Baptist pbuh as well, so they are both great because they are vicegerents of Allah . There- fore, the great nation from the progeny of Ishmael pbuh are Muhammad and the progeny of Muhammad pbut . The Almighty said, ﴾Or do they envy people for what Allah has given them of His bounty? But we had already given the family of Abraham the Scripture and wisdom and conferred upon them a great kingdom .﴿ Surat an-Nisa (The Women) 4:54 .
 According to http://bibleatlas.org/teman.htmand author W . Ewing, Teman or te’- man (תמין) means “on the right” i .e . “south” . —Trans
 It was mentioned in Genesis 21:21 about the home of Ishmael, [He lived in the wilder- ness of Paran, and his mother took a wife for him from the land of Egypt .] and in 25:18, [They settled from Havilah to Shur, which is opposite Egypt in the direction of Assyria . He settled over against all his kinsmen .] And as mentioned in The Dictionary of The Holy Book, Havilah is “A province in the land of the Arabs, and the connection between Havilah and Hadramout and other places indicates the location in the center of the Arab lands or in the Southern region .” And there is no doubt that Hadramout is in Yemen . As for Shur, it is in the south of Palestine by Egypt . Therefore the area is restricted between the boundaries of the current state of Yemen and the south of Palestine, which was well known by the Jews . For this reason, you find that they took that area as their home and they built Khaybar in al-Madina, north of Mecca, which at the time was geographically a part of Mecca . They did this in anticipation of the awaited prophet described to be a Yamani.
The Catholic Jesuit translation of the Holy Book comments on Genesis 25:18 saying, “The children of Ishmael are the Arabs of the desert, and their life is the life of travel and indepen- dence, which reminds us of the era prior to Islam [al-jahiliyya] and its poetry) . And this is the condition of the Arabian Peninsula from which the most favored messenger Muhammad pbuhap appeared .
Moreover, determining the wilderness of Paran is an inconclusive matter for the interpret- ers of the Holy Book . And whoever of them insists that it is in the south of Sinai must tell us about an important event that appeared there after Moses and Jesus pbut, an event that changed the face of mankind to the extent that its subject deserved to have his appearance and coming described as the appearance and the coming of God . And he must answer what was mentioned in Genesis 17:20, [As for Ishmael, I have heard you; behold, I have blessed him and will make him fruitful and multiply him greatly . He shall father twelve princes, and I will make him into a great nation] . So where are the signs of that great nation in the south of Sinai, or do they see that Allah swt has broken His promise to them?!! And He swt is far above that .
Imam Ahmad al-Hassan pbuh said, “The matter of the Yamani is not new, moreover, Mu- hammad pbuhap was also known to the People of the Book and promised as the Yamani . This is why the Jews left the Promised Land, which is very important to them, and lived in the land of Yemen, meaning the land historically named as Yemen and not just the land which is cur- rently known as Yemen . And al-Madina is also from Yemen . And the Jews in Yemen still take it as their home today, because they are also promised the Yamani and they wait for him, mean- ing Muhammad pbuhap and the Yamani from his progeny, exactly as the promise mentioning Ahmad, and it applies to more than one personification in different times . So the first Yamani, Muhammad, was dispatched in Yemen meaning in Mecca because it is from Yemen . And the second Yamani from the progeny of the first Yamani is dispatched in the East in the journey of the return of the Abrahamic [religion] to its original home, Iraq . This is why most of the graves of the Imams were in Iraq although they were not born in Iraq . This is the will of Allah, that they may prove the return of the Abrahamic religion to Iraq by the Yamani promised in the three religions .” Source: A Letter Proving the Unity of Personalities of the First Mahdi, the Riser and the Yamani by Alaa al-Salim .
 In The Dictionary of the Holy Book: “Taymen: The Southern desert . Refer to: Teman” . And in the explanation of Teman: “Taymen: A Hebrew name meaning the Yemeni or the Southern” .
 As an example: French writer Maurice Bucaille says, “The Quranic Revelation appeared six centuries after Jesus . It resumes numerous data found in the Hebraic Bible and the Gos- pels since it quotes very frequently from the ‘Torah’ [What is meant by Torah are the first five books of the Bible, in other words the Pentateuch of Moses: Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy .] and the ‘Gospels .’ The Quran directs all Muslims to believe in the Scriptures that precede it (Sura 4, verse 136) . It stresses the important position occupied in the Revelation by God’s emissaries, such as Noah, Abraham, Moses, the prophets and Jesus, to whom they allocate a special position . His birth is described in the Quran, and likewise in the Gospels, as a supernatural event . Mary is also given a special place, as indicated by the fact that Sura 19 bears her name . The above facts concerning Islam are not generally known in the West . This is hardly surprising, when we consider the way so many generations in the West were instructed in the religious problems facing humanity and the ignorance in which they were kept about anything related to Islam .” Reference: The Bible, the Quran and Science. The Holy Scriptures Examined in the Light of Modern Knowledge . Translated from French by Alastair D . Pannell and the Author .
 The narration of the saved sect is well known and authentic to all Muslims (Shia and Sunni) . And it was mentioned in Sunan Abi Dawood, Ibn Majah, Al-Bahiqi, Al-Tirmidhi, Sahih Ibn Habban, Musnad Ahmad bin Hanbal and many other references .
 “Imam Ahmad al-Hassan pbuh and the Ansar responded to many of the arguments in their books published in the official websites . And the specious arguments, no matter what they may be, are not proofs in order to oppose the proofs of the messengers of Allah . Refer to www.saviorofmankind.com
 “What is the case of the former generations, were our fathers in error?!” That is the question always asked by those who object to the prophets of Allah, so instead of the elders and their followers submitting to the proofs of the messengers, they make the people confront the messengers with these words, since they cannot face the clear proofs of the messengers and their signs or establish a proof for their belief except that it is a legacy of the fathers and grandfathers .
