Question 23: Where in the Bible was the prophet’s name mentioned?

Answer 23: In John 14: 16.  “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you for ever” (John: 14: 16).

Parclete means “Muhammad” or “Ahmad.”  The statement that the “Parclete will remain with us forever points to the eternal validity of Muhammad’s religion, book and way of life.  God vowed to protect and preserve them.  This is what is meant by “He will remain with you forever.”
