Conquest of Makkah in the Bible

Conquest of Makkah by Muslims in the Bible

"And Enoch also, the seventh generation from Adam, prophesied of these, saying, Behold, the Lord came with ten thousands of his saints, to execute judgment upon all, and to convince all that are ungodly among them of all their ungodly deeds which they have ungodly committed, and of all their hard [speeches] which ungodly sinners have spoken against him. (Jude 1:14-15)"

"And he said, The LORD came from Si'-nai, and rose up from Se'-ir unto them; he shined forth from mount Pa'-ran [Mecca in Arabic], and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them.
(Deuteronomy 33:2)"

"Lord came from Teman, and the Holy One from mount Paran. Selah. His glory covered the heavens, and the earth was full of his praise." (Habakkuk 3:3)

Hastings dictionary of the Bible describes Teman as an oasis just north of Madina. Paran is the city of Makkah. E-sword dictionary also agrees with this.


Other evidence is also available for this claim.

The evidence is by non-Muslims.

All these links include historical and biblical facts.

Prophet Muhammad (s) is the only man in history to migrate from Makkah to Madina and then return to Makkah with 10,000 men.

The army of the Muslims that conquered Mecca without any blood shed (peacefully) were exactly 10,000 men (From the book of "Muhammad the Prophet" by Maulana Muhammad Ali, pages 128-129). The Bible calls them "ten thousands of saints"

A Christian once claimed:

The saints were angelic beings and it was God who descended and not Prophet Muhammad (s).

My response:

The dictionary does not agree that a saint is an angel. A saint is a human being.

If we look at the words carefully, we see that the verses are clearly stating that it is a prophecy and therefore the question of past tenses does not arise.

It is not God personally who is being talked about but the knowledge of God because God is not limited to a single place.

Strong’s Dictionary tells:



From H6286; ornamental; Paran, a desert of Arabia: – Paran.
