Ahmed, a name by which MOHAMMED is mentioned in the Koran.. In chapter 61 it is written, "Jesus, the son of Mary, said, O children of Israel, verily, I am-the apostle of God. sent unto you, confirming the law, which was delivered before me, and bringing good tidings of an apostle who shall come after me, and whose name shall be Ahmed." Mohammedan writers endeavor to confirm this alleged prediction by the words of Jesus as recorded in Joh 16:7, "Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you." This Comforter, or Paraclete, they transform into Periclete, the Illustrious, and all explain as- referring to Mohammed.
