OpinionsNo, Muhammad is not mentioned in the Bible.
Some claim that Song of Solomon 5:16 mentions Muhammad by name but this is merely a myth spread by Islamic propagandists Ahmed Deedat and Zakir Naik.
The claim is that the phrase "altogether lovely" means Muhammad. The source of this claim is a false Latinised translation of the Hebrew, "חִכֹּו֙ מַֽמְתַקִּ֔ים וְכֻלֹּ֖ו מַחֲמַדִּ֑ים זֶ֤ה דֹודִי֙ וְזֶ֣ה רֵעִ֔י בְּנֹ֖ות יְרוּשָׁלִָֽם׃". The word "machmad"(pronounced Makh Mawd) meaning - "delightful; hence, a delight, i.e. object of affection or desire -- beloved, desire, goodly, lovely, pleasant (thing)". Naik/Deedat/et al claims the above to be 'Muhammad' however this is incorrect from all examinations of the word and seems to have spread from his own inventive translation. (NB. Naik does not understand Hebrew).
Regarding the claim that Deut 33:2 is referring to the conquest of Mecca is another incorrect false and farfetched claim. Within the context of the chapter no such reference is made to the alleged events of the conquest of Mecca.
Isaiah 29:12 also does not mention Muhammad by name or description. As part of a juxtaposition metaphor and literate and illiterate man are compared and the verse in no way or form states that Muhammad in any figurative or literal sense would receive a revelation. This is another verse intentionally removed from a context to make a claim it does not. Daniel 12 for example takes note of these words in context.
Deuteronomy 18:18 states that the prophet will be from the Israelite people and not the Arabs and thus the prophecy does not speak of Muhammad. This is directly in conflict to the interpretation made by Dr Naik where he claims that coming from among the Israelites does not mean coming from among the Israelites which itself is a clear contradiction.
In conclusion, the claims of Muhammad's reference in the Bible is merely unscholarly propaganda spread by Islamic propagandists and those wanting to proselytize deceptively.  OpinionProphet Muhammad (pbuh) is mentioned by name in the Song of Solomon chapter 5 verse 16:"Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh WA Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem."
Translation:"His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is Mohammad. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem."
In the Hebrew language im is added for respect. Similarly im is added after the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) to make it Muhammadim. In English translation they have even translated the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as "altogether lovely", but in the Old Testament in Hebrew, the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is yet present.
. DEUTERONOMY 33:2He (Muhummed pbuh) shined forth from mount Paran (in Arabia), and he came with ten thousand saints. (Referring to the conquest of Makkah). (d)
DEUTERONOMY 32:21:and I (God Almighty) will move them (the Jews) to jealousy with those (the Arabs) which are NOT A PEOPLE (a non-entity): I will provoke them (the Jews) to anger with a FOOLISH NATION," |the pre-Islamic Arabs)
Muhammad (pbuh) is prophesized in the book of Isaiah and is mentioned in the book of Isaiah chapter 29 verse 12:"And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned."

Mohammad (PBUH) received his first revelation in the cave called HIRA which is located in Saudi Arabia, one day he was in the cave praising Almighty When Archangel Gabriel came to the cave and commanded Muhammad (pbuh) by saying IQRA- "Read", he replied "I am not learned"


The Prophesy of Mohammad (PBUH) in the Torah (Old Testament)
The Qur'an mentions in Surah Al-Araf chapter 7 verse 157:"Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures) in the law and the Gospels"
Almighty God speaks to Moses in Book of Deuteronomy chapter 18 verse 18"I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and I will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him."
If these two are the only criteria for this prophecy to be fulfilled, then all the Prophets of the Bible who came after Moses (pbuh) such as Solomon, Isaiah, Ezekiel, Daniel, Hosea, Joel, Malachi, John the Baptist, etc. (pbut) will fulfill this prophecy since all were Jews as well as prophets.
However, it is Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) who is like Moses (pbuh):'Among their brethren' clearly refers to a nation other than the Israelites. Otherwise it should have been 'Amongst yourselves'. The reference in (Deuteronomy 18:18) could fit nobody else except Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him), and not Prophet Jesus, for the following reasons:
Do not forget that deuteronomy 18:18 is linked to deuteronomy 34:10
34:10 Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face

So if the prophet that is mentioned in deuteronomy 18:18 must be like Moses, it cannot be someone from the children of Israël . Because that is contredicting deuteronomy 34:10.

(World Religions from Ancient History to the Present, by Geoffrey Parrinder, p. 472)
God sent the angel Gabriel* to teach Muhammad* the exact words that he should repeat to the people. The words are therefore not his own; they did not come from his own thoughts, but were put into his mouth by the angel. These are written down in the Qur'an word for word exactly as they came from God.Now that we know that prophet we must listen to him, for, according to the Bible, God says: "I will punish anyone who refuses to obey him"
(Good News Bible, Deut. 18:19).
Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) is not prophesized in Christianity
Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) is not prophesized in Judaism
Muhammed pbuh did speak directly with God swt, just like Moses pbuh.
Proof: The mi'raaj + Isra (Night journey) that is mentioned in
Surah 17 verse 1 & 60, surah 53 verse 1 to 20,
In Sahih Bukhari Volume 9, Book 93, Number 608:
...Then Moses stopped him when the prayers had been reduced to five and said, "O Muhammad! By Allah, I tried to persuade my nation, Bani Israel to do less than this, but they could not do it and gave it up. However, your followers are weaker in body, heart, sight and hearing, so return to your Lord so that He may lighten your burden."
The Prophet turned towards Gabriel for advice and Gabriel did not disapprove of that. So he ascended with him for the fifth time. The Prophet said, "O Lord, my followers are weak in their bodies, hearts, hearing and constitution, so lighten our burden." On that the Irresistible(Allah) said, "O Muhammad!" the Prophet replied, "Labbaik and Sa'daik." Allah said, "The Word that comes from Me does not change, so it will be as I enjoined on you in the Mother of the Book." Allah added, "Every good deed will be rewarded as ten times so it is fifty (prayers) in the Mother of the Book (in reward) but you are to perform only five (in practice)."
Volume 5, Book 58, Number 228:Narrated Ibn 'Abbas: Regarding the Statement of Allah" "And We granted the vision (Ascension to the heavens) which We made you see (as an actual eye witness) was only made as a trial for the people." (17.60) Ibn Abbas added: The sights which Allah's Apostle was shown on the Night Journey when he was taken to Bait-ulMaqdis (i.e. Jerusalem) were actual sights, (not dreams). And the Cursed Tree (mentioned) in the Quran is the tree of Zaqqum (itself) .
So he did not dream the journey.
(I don't know why someone always deletes my answer(s) or changes it ... Is he afraid of the truth?)
Further, Deuteronomy 18:18 is linked to Deuteronomy 34:10.
Let's see what both verses say about Mohammed pbuh.
"I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee(Moses), and I will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him."
ok, now let's see the other verse.
Deuteronomy chapter 34 is going about the dead of Moses as.
Deuteronomy 34:10 Since then(dead of Moses), no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face
So it must be a prophet from another nation, because God swt says that there will raise no prophet like Moses as in Israël, after his dead.
This Deuteronomy 34:10 is linked to Deuteronomy 32:21and I (God Almighty) will move them (the Jews) to jealousy with those (the Arabs) which are NOT A PEOPLE (a non-entity): I will provoke them (the Jews) to anger with a FOOLISH NATION," |the pre-Islamic Arabs)
So if we first read Deuteronomy 18:18, then 34:10 and then 32:21, you will understand why the prophet mentioned in deuteronomy 18:18 is Mohammed pbuh.

"I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee(Moses), and I will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
" Since then(Moses's dead), no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the LORD knew face to face.""and I (God Almighty) will move them (the Jews) to jealousy with those (the Arabs) which are NOT A PEOPLE (a non-entity): I will provoke them (the Jews) to anger with a FOOLISH NATION," |the pre-Islamic Arabs)
Ps. about that "bretheren", it revers to the Arabs, since they also come forth from Abraham's (pbuh) seed.
Brother (or bretheren) does not have to mean a real brother, because it is usual in Hebrew (and Arabic) to say to someone: "hey brother" or "you are my brother (in faith)". or to say it to a cousin or someone from Libanon says to someone from Yemen: "brother". so brother has many meanings in Hebrew, and everybody knows that.
So you said, "bretheren means someone from his own nation (Jew).", I say: " Why could it then not mean someone from their brother nation(Arabs). Since bretheren has many meanings. "
And Mohammed's (pbuh) grandfathers are Ismaël and Abraham (pbut).
proof: The genacology of Mohammed pbuh.
