"That's why the Qur'an was revealed to make the Jews and others understand something that they did not understand previously. Moses was a prophet and a messenger of Allah."
lbn, I shall have to have another look but I did not see Moses books as prophesies.
What did Moses prophesay about?
Deuteronomy 18:18 I will set up a prophet for them from among their brethren, just as you are. I will place My word in his mouth, and he will declare to them all that I command him.
[19.51] And mentionMosesin the Book; surely he was one purified, and he was a messenger, (and) a prophet.
The first one from the Torah through Moses is a prophecy about a prophet to come just as "you are".
The second one is confirmation from the Qur'an that Moses was a messenger as well as a prophet.

Don't forget Christ's own words on this subject:
Do not think that I will accuse you to the Father: there is one that accuseth you, even Moses, in whom ye trust. For had ye believed Moses, ye would have believed me; for he wrote of me. But if ye believe not his writings, how shall ye believe my words?

Yes, there is so much to read and so much to remember. It's not so easy is it?
I know one thing: There are a billion Islamic people in the world today, and there will be about 2 billion by the time we're dead. They're not going to give up their religion. (Chris Matthews)
