Muslims believe that the
verse Isaiah 29:11
11 And the vision of
all is become unto you as the words of a book that is sealed,
which men deliver to one that is learned, saying, Read this, I
pray thee: and he saith, I cannot; for it is sealed: KJV
is about the
Prophet Muhammad. They argue that if this is true then the
book sealed has already been opened by Prophet Muhammad, and so Maitreya
is incorrect and his claim is false since the sealed book is opened
already and Prophet Muhammad was the last Prophet.
The answer is that they
are half correct. Yes indeed, that verse is Revealed for
Prophet Muhammad and the Revelation He received. He was
offered to read (Koran) and He could not since
He was illiterate. However, as you can see it says the
"book that is sealed," not the Book Sealed with the Seven Seals.
In fact all Scriptures
(books) Revealed by Major Prophets were Sealed and unknown to humans
until they were Revealed to man. So all of them opened a sealed
book and One of the Seals of the Seven Seals. The Book which
Reveals the Mystery of all the Revelations (Seals) before it is the
Book Sealed with the Seven Seals that will Reveal the meaning of
each Seal (book sealed) in the Plan of God.
This last Revelation of
God will be Revealed with One who has Fulfilled all the
Prophesies, is the
Lion of the Tribe of Judah, a Sayyed,
etc, etc. This only will happen at the End Time. This
later Revelation is what Maitreya Claims He has opened.
Prophet Muhammad could not have been this Last Prophet and Revealer.
This Muslims and all humanity have to understand and Surrender unto.
