>The Qur'an mentions in Surah Al-Araf chapter 7 verse 157:

ROTFL Pakistani Arabic. It is called SURAT al-a3raaf

The word Araf in Egyptian Arabic means: disgusting! See what happens when you become the slave of a foreign language and culture?

>"Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures) in the law and the Gospel".

Your translation is poor now let us see what the Qur'an says:

1. al-ladhina yatabi3uuna means those that follow

2. al-rasul means the prophet

3. al-nabi in the Qur'an this word means a "Biblical" prophet

4. al-ummi does not mean the uneducated (the word uneducated means jahil) the word ummi here means the gentile or the non-Jewish

5. al-ladhina yajidonahu means they will find him

6. maktuban 3anduhum written for them

7. fi al-tawrah wa al-injiil

Or: those that follow the prophet, the non Jewish (gentile) prophet (that belongs to the Biblical prophets) will find his name written in the torah wa al-injiil

Your translation is poor. now you tell us

1. Where do you find the name of Muhammad or even Ahmad or even Abul Qasim or even Qutham in such aya? Let me help you: you will not find it. So how do you know that may be your Allah is talking about me Dhimmi no more?

2. Your Allah says that the jews and Christians corrupted the Bible right? then why should you believe what the Bible is saying?

So much for your poor eduaction
