THE 5TH & FINAL COVENANT, THE COVENANT OF ISLAM (SHALOM IN HEBREW), IS FOUND IN THE BIBLE: The Biblical covenants are: the Covenant of Noah, the Covenant of Abraham, the Covenant of Moses & Aaron, the Covenant of David and the Covenant of Islam. Islam (Shalom in Hebrew) is the 5th and final covenant that God made with those who obey his laws. This covenant of peace was given to the descendants of Aaron in Numbers 25:12 and the descendants of David in Isaiah and Ezekiel. According to Numbers 25:12: “Behold I give him my covenant of Shalom (Islam in Arabic)”. Isaiah 54:10 says: Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of Shalom/Islam be removed,” says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” Ezekiel 34:25 says: “I will make a covenant of Shalom/Islam with them and rid the land of savage beasts so that they may live in the wilderness and sleep in the forests in safety.” Ezekiel 37:26 sats: “I will make a covenant of Shalom/Islam with them; it will be an everlasting covenant. I will establish them and increase their numbers, and I will put my sanctuary among them forever.”

The covenant promised to Aaron, that of a perpetual priesthood which would abide in peace, and the covenant given to David, that a patrilineal descendant of David would reign in peace forever from Jerusalem, were to be fulfilled in Jesus. According to Jesus’ genealogy in the gospels of Matthew and Luke, Jesus’ father, Joseph, was a descendant of David and Jesus’ mother, Mary, was a descendant of Aaron (Luke 1:36). However, the Jews refused to follow Jesus, so the final covenant of Islam was transferred to Bani Ishmael when Muhammad was appointed as Allah’s Prophet.

According to the Quran 61:16: Jesus foretold Muhammad as ‘the Praised One’: “And [mention] when Jesus, the son of Mary, said, “O children of Israel, indeed I am the messenger of Allah to you confirming what came before me of the Torah and bringing good tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name is the Praised One (Ahmad in Arabic).” But when he came to them with clear evidences, they said, “This is obvious magic.”

Jesus foretold of Ahmad/Muhammad when he quoted to the Jews Psalm 118: 26 in Matt 23:39 & Luke 13:35: “Behold, your house is left unto you desolate: and verily I say unto you, Ye shall not see me, until the time comes when ye shall say, “The Praised One (Ahmad/Muhammad in Arabic) is he that comes in the name of the Lord.” In other words, the Mosaic and Davidic covenants which the Messiah was to fulfill, would be cancelled and the covenant of Islam would be transferred to the Praised One (Ahmad/Muhammad) who came ‘in the name of’ God or Allah. Luke 13:35 confirms Matthew 21:43 in which Jesus says that the kingdom of God would be taken from the Jews and given to another nation. “Therefore I tell you that the kingdom of God will be taken away from you and given to a people who will produce its fruit.” So, the houses of Aaron (the priesthood) and David (kingdom of Judah) remained desolate and expelled from Jerusalem until Omar ibn Khattab restored the Christian expelled Jews to Jerusalem in 637 CE.
