MUHUMMED THE NATURAL SUCCESSOR TO CHRIST By Ahmed Deedat CHAPTER 1 The final Messenger MULTI-FACETED SUCCESSION Successions are of many kinds like the birthright of the "first-born" as in Jewish law. Or the ascending of the eldest son or daughter to the kingly throne. Or by election, to select a candidate by the vote of the majority. Or Theologically, an appointment by Divine Decree of God's chosen Messengers. Like the call of Abraham, Moses, Jesus or Muhummed (May the Peace and Blessings of God be upon them all) who were appointed or "anointed" 2 in consecration to their office. Muhummed's (pbuh) succession to Jesus Christ (pbuh) is multifaceted. 1. Chronologically, in history as a sequence of event in time. 2. By being Chosen 3 by God. 3. In the fulfilment of the prophecies of his predecessors, and but not in the least. .. 4. By bringing the Guidance of God to perfection ' "For he will Guide you into all Truth." said. Jesus Christ 1. In this book as well as in my other publications, I quote extensively from the Arabic Qur’ân not only for blessings or adornment.

The Holy Prophet Moses preceded Jesus Christ (pbuh) by some 1300 years and Muhummed (pbuh) succeeded to that high office vacated by Jesus some six centuries later. It was the 12 of Rabi I., in the year of the Elephant, or the 29th of August 570 of the Christian Era 1 that Muhummed the Praiseworthy, to whom all praise is due, was born in the sacred city of Makkah in pagan Arabia. His people the Quraish remembered the year of his birth as the "Era of the Elephant", because just two months before the birth of the child Abraha al-Ashram, the Abyssinian viceroy of Yemen had attacked the sacred sanctuary at Makkah at the head of his troops riding a huge African elephant. A terrifying sight never to be erased from their memory and a still more shocking end to the invasion — the miraculous destruction of Abraha and his army as recorded in Sura Fil or the Elephant — Seest thou not how thy Lord dealt with the Companions of the Elephant? Did He not make their treacherous plan go astray? And He sent against them flights of Birds, Striking them with stones of baked clay. Then did He make them like an empty field of stalks and straw,(of which the corn) has been eaten up (SURA FIL) Holy Qur’ân 105:1-5 1 . Always use A.C. (After Christ) or C.E. (Christian Era) and not A.D. as Muslims often do unthinkingly. GOD'S OWN STANDARDS God Almighty chooses His Own Messengers, He uses His Own Standards although we may not always understand the wisdom of it. Paul cries the anomaly - For the Jews require a sign (miracles to convince) and the Greeks seek after wisdom: (HOLY BIBLE) I Corinthians 1: 22 But worldly wise as Paul was, he found that his wisdom was "a stumbling-block" to the Jews and
