Isaiah 42 describes Muhammad (PBUH) Clearly

Isaiah 42 describes Muhammad (Peace and Blessings of Allah be on him)
Please read Isaiah 42:1-23 from KJV version and read the annexed explanation of each verse.

1- Behold my servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
Until "...delighted"
If we consider "mine elect" as a noun then Mine elect = God's elect = Mustafa (in Arabic) the name of our Prophet Muhammad Mustafa (SAV). Otherwise it is true for all prophets of God.
After "..delighted..."
All prophets after Jacob (pbuh) mentioned in the Bible came for Israelites not Gentiles. This includes Jesus (pbuh) (look Matthew 15:21-26, Matthew 10:5-6 and many more). And Jesus (pbuh) did not stay on earth long enough to do that. But Muhammad (pbuh) was a Gentile and he brought message and judgment to Gentiles first.

2- He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heart in the street.
Here the word "not cry" is used as "not complain about the duty that I gave him" because we see in verse 13 God says "... he shall cry". There is a difference between these two using of the word cry. Now if we read your Bible Matthew 26:39-42, we can not say that Jesus (pbuh) never complained.
But if you read the life of Muhammad (pbuh) , the history of Islam you cannot find even one complaining word of Muhammad (pbuh) about the mission (duty) that given by God Almighty.

3- A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
This is true almost all prophets.

4- He shall not fall nor be discouraged, till he had set judgment in the earth: and the isles shall wait for his law.
Until "earth:"
Jesus (pbuh) couldn't finish his mission which had continued only for ~3 years. He fall and discouraged (you will find many places in NT about this) and he couldn't set judgment in the earth, because his followers were a few and they had little faith (you will find many places in NT about this). And yet they "forsook him and fled" at the time that Roman soldiers came to arrest Jesus (pbuh). And Jesus (pbuh) himself says "My kingdom is not of this world: if my kingdom were of this world, then would my servants fight, that I should not be delivered to the Jews: but now is my kingdom not from hence " John 18:36
But Muhammad established a state and ruled with his law that given by God. Therefore he set judgment in the earth and he did not fall and he was not discouraged.
After "earth:"
Here God says "his law", and in verse 9 says "former things come to pass". This means that he (new prophet) will bring new law. But if we read the Bible again, we see that Jesus (pbuh) says Matthew 5:17 "Think not I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy but fulfill". And if we read further we understand that Jesus (pbuh) did not come with new law.
But Muhammad (pbuh) came with new law.

5- Thus saith God the Lord, he that created the heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that which come out of it ; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein;

6- I the Lord have called thee in righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles.
Muhammad (pbuh) is a descendent of Abraham (pbuh) and came to Gentiles.

7- To open blind eyes, to bring out prisoners from prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
"To open blind eyes". If we read verse 19 we will see more clearly that the word blind is used as idiom.
Meaning, he will show people the things that they did not know and will show people how to comprehend God and His message with THE CRITERION i.e. FURQAN i.e. QURAN .
Prison is used as an idiom too. If a spirit doesn't know God and doesn't obey Him, then that spirit is in prison of Satan, and that person is prisoner of Satan. By accepting oneness of God and by obeying Him, the spirit of a person will be free and this makes that person free from prison of Satan. And in verse 8 God clearly states what He meant.

8- I am the Lord: that is my name: and my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven images.
(With explanation of verse 7) we understand that the person that God is talking about will come to a place that people worship idols as their gods. If we read verse 17, we may understand this better.
From verses 7 and 8, we understand that God is not talking about Jesus (pbuh) but Muhammad (pbuh). Because Jesus (pbuh) came to Israelites and they were not worshipping idols. But Muhammad (pbuh) came during the Jahilliya (ignorance) period of Arabs and destroy the idols. If we read verse 17, it will be understood more clearly.

9- Behold, the former things come to pass, the new things do I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.
As we read in verse 4 and my explanation of it, the person, God is talking about, will come new law. And this person cannot be Jesus (pbuh) because of the reasons stated above. This person is nobody but Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

10- Sing unto the Lord a new song, and his praise, ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles and inhabitants thereof.
If you want to hear this new song please listen to someone reciting the Qur'an. The new song that God talking about is Noble Qur'an. If you hear how people recite the Noble Qur'an, you will understand what God is talking about.

11- Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from the top of the mountains.

12- Let them give glory unto the Lord, and declare his praise in the islands.
Kedar is son of Ishmael (pbuh) (Genesis 25:13-16), and has nothing to do with Jesus (pbuh). This verse (verse 11) is not talking about Jesus (pbuh) but Muhammad (pbuh). As you know Muhammad (pbuh) is descendent of Abraham (pbuh) through Ishmael (pbuh). And the cities that they inhabited are in Arabia namely Telma (Tema/Teman), Yathrib (Al-Madinah Al-Munawwarah), Paran (Makkah) etc. And if you observe the ritual of Muslims (especially during Hajj), you will see that cities (Makkah and Al-Madinah) lift up their voices** and people shout and glorify Allah from top of mountains, especially Mt. Arafat**. The rock is the rock that God sent to Adam from heaven, and it is located at the side of Kaba. As you know Muslim people make 7 tours around Kaba and kiss this rock while glorifying the Lord.
**in fact, you can see this in every Muslim country, when people are called to prayer, muezzins read the Adhan (calling to prayer) that sounds like a song. And even far from city you can hear this Adhan, it will look like that city lifted up its voice. Meaning of Adhan is
Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest
Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest
I'm witness that there is no god but Allah
I'm witness that there is no god but Allah
I'm witness that Muhammad is His messenger
Come to prayer, come to prayer
Come to salvation, come to salvation
Allah is the greatest, Allah is the greatest
There is no god but Allah.

13- The Lord shall go forth as a mighty man, he shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall prevail against his enemies.

14- I have long time holding my peace; I have been still, and refrained myself: now will I cry like a travailing women; I will destroy and devour at once.
Until Islam, God had never ordered any prophets to fight against unbelievers to destroy them. Believer were fighting only to defense themselves. But Allah ordered Muhammad (pbuh) to fight against unbelievers, and slay them if they don't accept Allah. And if you study the life of Muhammad (pbuh) you will see that he was the commander of the army and he fought with his sword and he lost one of his teeth during the war. And God destroyed unbelievers at once (with only during of one prophet).

15- I will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and I will dry up the pools.
Here God is talking about deserts of Arabia. In desert place, mountains and hills of sand are not steady, they diminish with winds and another one appears. And you can not find rivers but small water islands as described by God.
Also this verse has nothing to do with Jesus (pbuh)
16- And I will bring blind by a way that they knew not; I will lead them in paths that they have not known: I will make darkness light before them, and crooked thins straight. These things I will do unto them, and not forsake them.
As God says above, He did not send to pagan Arabs until Muhammad (pbuh) as stated in verse 22. Until Muhammad (pbuh), Arabs were worshipping idols, killing baby girls, drinking alcohol, gambling etc. Allah a way (Islam, unity of God) that they did not know, made Qur'an and Muhammad (pbuh) guided (as light before) them, and made crooked things (mentioned above) straight.
This verse also has nothing to do with Jesus (pbuh).

17- They shall be turned back, they shall be greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that they say to the molten images, Ye are our gods.
This is exactly what pagan Arabs did, when they heard the message that given to Muhammad (pbuh) by God. They offered money, authority and many things to our prophet and he did not accept any of them. They ashamed, because they thought that all other Arabs will mock them, and will not visit the Kaba (at that time they were using Kaba as place of the idols that all other Arab tribes were using) and this would be their economic end. And they turned graven images and they asked help from those images.
This verse also has nothing to do with Jesus (pbuh).

18- Hear, ye deaf; and look, ye blind, that ye may see.

19- Who is blind, but my servant? or deaf, as my messenger that I sent? who is blind as he that is perfect, and blind as the Lord's servant?

20- Seeing many things, but thou observest not; opening the ears, but he heareth not.
In this verses God talks to Christians and Jews.
In verse 18: Hear you (Christians and Jews) deaf, and look you (Christians and Jews) blind, you may see that above things are happening every day in Islamic world.
In verse 19: God says, "Who is blind or deaf? My messenger (Muhammad (pbuh) and his followers) or you?
In verse 20: You do see these things but you don't pay attention, you don't comprehend. You do hear the Qur'an and you know that Muslims sing new song and Muslim cities lift up their voices and they shout from top of mountains, they glorify Me, but you don't pay attention, you don't comprehend.
Indeed, Christians and Jews think that Muslims do not see the right path (blind). Even you wrote that "What Muslims do not understand...".
These verses also have nothing to do with Jesus (pbuh).

21- The Lord is well pleased for his righteousness' sake; he will magnify the law, and make it honourable.
In Qur'an many places Allah calls Prophet as "My friend" (friend is not exactly translation for Habeeb/Habib, because Habeeb is closer then friend but I couldn't find another word for this). And He magnified the law and people still follow his law. Jesus did not bring new law, and non of the Christians follows the law that he was following.
This verse also has nothing to do with Jesus (pbuh)

22- But this is a people robbed and spoiled; they are all of them snared in holes, and they are hid in prison houses: they are for a prey, and none delivereth; for a spoil, and none saith, Restore.
In this verse God talks about corrupted society of pagan Arabs. And, indeed, He had not send any prophets to Arabs until Muhammad (pbuh). That's why "none saith, Restore". But up to Jesus (pbuh), many prophets had been send to Israelites.
This verse also has nothing to do with Jesus (pbuh)

23- Who among you will give ear to this? who will hearken and hear for the time to come?
Who will become Muslim?
Isaiah 42 describes Prophet Muhammad.

Prophecy Servant of God

word Atmak not necessarily means ‘whom I uphold’ but is infact a name

the writing of Atmak is אתמך
the writing of Ahmad is אחמד

Isaiah 42:1
God says
“Behold, 'My Servant' (pronounced as Abd-ee), ‘whom I uphold’ (pronounced as Atmak);

God mentioning about the coming of His servant
Behold My Servant Ahmad (Isaiah 42:1) - so who is this Ahmad as in God'servant?

He is none other than
Abd-Allah Ahmad (Servant of God, Ahmad) - Prophet Muhammad s.a.w

ISAIAH 42:1-21

In this chapter, in the first verse, God says: behold my servant in whom my soul is delighted, Sura 14:1. Since the time of Muhammad (pbuh), Muslims have known Muhammad (pbuh), through the Holy QURAN, as the servant of God. Muhammad (pbuh) is also called "AI Mustafa" which means the "chosen one", Before Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), the word Mustafa was only used in a descriptive manner. Ever since Muslims used this word to describe their prophet, it has become a very common name.

This chapter also states that this "chosen one" will bring truth and judgment to the Gentiles, Sura 7:152. During these times, the Jews only referred to the Arabs as Gentiles, Sura 62:2. The prophets from the children of Israel were only for them and for no other nations.

The Jewish and Christian scholars never claimed that Paul, because they know these verses only fit a prophet from the Gentiles and that Prophet is Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), Verse 2 describes the character of Muhammad (pbuh). His good qualities and characters were well known in Makkah, even before his prophethood, Muhammad (pbuh) was considered and was addressed as the most truthful and honest (as described in Part 11, chapter 4 virtues Prophet Mohammad (pbuh).

Verse 3 means that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) will be safe from harm so that he can spread the truth. In The Qur'an 5:67, when this verse was revealed to him, Prophet Muhammad no longer needed the protection of his companions from his flame that cannot be extinguished. God also describes him in a similar way in the QURAN, Sura 33; 45 -46.

Verse 4 means that the Prophet will not die until the revelation of the QURAN is complete finish his duty, and a good foundation is laid for his companions to take care of the Islamic religion forever. No other Prophet laid such a foundation for future generations. Moses never entered the Holy Land, and no Gospel of Jesus was ever saved except through verbal history. The new Law of God will be set forth on the lands for all nations, not as the Law that was given to Moses (pbuh) which was practiced by the children of Israel only (verses describe that). On the 85th day (Friday) before Prophet Muhammad's (pbuh) death (632 A.D), he was in Makkah for his last pilgrimage (Hajj). More than 100,000 Muslims from all over Arabia came to Makkah for this pilgrimage, Sura 110:1-3. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) told his companions and the followers that God has now completed their religion with the last verses of Sura 5:3. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) also told them that he would not be with them much longer, Sura 39:30.

Verse 6 states that God, the One and only, has chosen Muhammad (pbuh) to carry his message. God will also protect Muhammad (pbuh) from his enemies. Muhammad (pbuh) never had guards to protect him after the guarantee was given to him by Allah, Sura 5:67. God also tells that the Prophet will bring a covenant to the Gentiles, and be a light for them and that Prophet was Muhammad (pbuh)

Verse 7 states that Muhammad (pbuh) will bring the people from all the nations out of oppression from unjust rulers. He will also restore their devotion to God alone, and not to other men such as kings and prophets.

Verse 8 states that there is only one God, with one name which is not to be used for any of the 360 idols (gods) that were worshipped at that time by the people of Makkah, This name is also not to be used for the highest people, Angels, or prophets, not even Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). Though Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) all the people in all the nations are to believe in Allah (God) alone, not only the children of Israel who called Allah (Yahweh of Israel). Yahweh is not to be confused with the Hebrew word "Aloheim" which is a descriptive word meaning "master or'. This word was used to describe Moses (pbuh) as he was the master of the Pharaoh of Egypt (Exodus 7:1).

The first part of verse 9; describes the Bible prophecies that were fulfilled from the time of Moses until Muhammad (pbuh). The second part described the prophecies brought by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) through the QURAN. For his time and through all future generations to the last Day of Judgment.

Verse 10 describes that before Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), those who praised God, did so in Hebrew. After Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) "a new song" (Arabic), will sing the praises of God through the Quran, Sura 39:28. In the year 660 A.D, the Muslims (including the children of Kedar) made their first trip by the sea to Tarshish to spread the word of Allah (Islam). According to the maps in the Bible, most of the islands in the Mediterranean Sea were called Tarshish. The Muslims opened Spain and Portugal in 711 A.D. as they spread Islam.

Verse 11 means that the places where the children of Kedar (Makkah) live will be glorified by the sounds of the words of Allah from the mountains and villages as it is traditionally done during the Hajj.

In verse, 11, the name of the mountain is not mentioned in the King James Version of the Bible. But in the Hebrew and Arabic versions, the mountain is named, "Sela," This mountain is right next to the city of Medina and the name "Sela" is still used today.
This is the only mountain to have this name any where.
Three companions of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) did not accompany him into the Battle of Tabuk. These three companions; Kaeb Bin Malik, Hilal Bin Omeyah, and Maraeh Bin Al Rabeeh, were very sorry for their actions showed the people that they truly wanted to repent. After 55 days, God accepted their repentance and revealed to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) Sura 9: 117-118 to show that God forgave these companions. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) sent some other companions to the top of mount Sela. They declared that God had accepted this repentance. The children of Kedar will praise Allah, and spread the word of Islam to all the continents. (verse 12).

Verse 13 means that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) will conquer all his enemies with the help of God. The word jealousy is used here to show that God will only be with Muhammad (pbuh), by sending angels to support him in all his battles, and he will always be victorious for the sake of Allah's final Religion.

Verse 16; explains that the children of Kedar never traveled outside Arabia. To spread the word of God (Islam), Allah will guide them through Persia, Egypt, etc. in the year 638 A.D., Sura 98: 1-4. God promises to never forsake them.
The companions were slaves, shepherds and barefooted who through their strong faith in Allah, and His support were able to end the great kingdoms and empires as in Daniel 2:44 and Matthew 21:43.

Verse 17 means that Muhammad (pbuh) will put and end to all forms of idols worship. All idols will be destroyed and the people will obey and worship only one God. For many years, the children of Kedar, descendants of Abraham (pbuh), worshipped idols. Through Muhammad (pbuh) they returned to worship only one God.
In 630 A.D Muhammad (pbuh) opened Makkah and destroyed the 360 idols by pointing his staff at them which caused them to fall down and break. The children of Kedar were surprised at how easily Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) destroyed these idols, and were convinced that Muhammad (pbuh) was sent by God.
Verse 17 describes a prophet from the Gentiles who will destroy idols. Isaiah came after Moses and is descrihing a future event. All these verses describe a great Prophet who will destroy idols.

Finally, in verse 21, God says that with this new, strong law, He has created these people (Muslims) to praise God.

Prophet Abraham (pbuh) destroyed the idols of his people only, while Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) destroyed the idols of his own people and many other empires (Romans, Persians, etc.) Sura 21 :57-58. Those were the only two prophets who destroyed idols.

The last speech given by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Arafat (Makkah) on Friday, 632 A.D More that 100,000 Muslims were gathered for this pilgrimage (Hajj). Prophet Muhammad died 85 days later. During this Khutba was revealed to him
Sura 5:3-5.

"O' people! Listen well to my words', for I do not know whether I shall meet you again on such an occasion in the future;
O' people! Your lives and your property shall be inviolate until you meet your Lord The safety of your lives and of your property shall be as inviolate as this holy day and holy month. Remember that you will indeed meet your Lord, and that He will reckon your deeds'. Thus do I warn you. Whoever of you is keeping a trust of someone else shall return that trust to its rightful owner. All interest obligation shall henceforth be waived. Your capital, however, is yours to keep. You will neither inflict nor suffer inequity. God has judged that there shall be no interest and that all the interest due to 'Abbas Bin 'Abdul Muttalib shall henceforth be waived. Every right arising out of homicide in pre-Islamic days is henceforth waived. And the first such right that, I waive is that arisingfrom the murder of Rabi 'ah bin al Harith bin A 'bd al Muttalib.
O' people! The devil has lost all hope of ever being worshipped in this land of yours. Nevertheless, he still is anxious to determine the lesser of your deeds. Beware ofhim, therefore, for the safety ofyour religion.
O’ people! Intercalation or tampering with the calendar is evidence of great unbelief and confirms the unbelievers in their misguidance. They indulge in itone year and forbid it the next in order to make permissible that which God forbade, and to forbid that which God has made permissible. The pattern according to which the time is reckoned is always the same. With God, the months are twelve in number. Four of them are holy. Three of these are successive and one occurs singly between the months of Jumada and Sha 'ban.
O’ people! To you a right belongs-with respect to your women and to your women a right with respect to you. It is your right that they notfraternize with anyone of whom YOlt do not approve, as well as never to commit adultery. But if they do, then God has permitted you to isolate them within their homes and to chastise them without cruelty. But il they abide by your right, then to them belongs the right to be fed and clothed in kindness. Do treat your women well and be kind to them, for they are your partners and committed helpers. Remember that you have taken them as your wives and enjoyed their .flesh only under God's trust and with His permission.

Reason well, therefore, O people, and ponder my works which I now convey to you. I am leaving you with the Book of God and the Sunna of His Prophet. If you follow them, you will never go astray.

O' people! Harken well to my words. Learn that every Muslim is a brother to every Muslim and that the Muslim constitute one brotherhood. Nothing shall be legitimate to a given freely and willingly, Do not, therefore, do injustice to your own selves. O GOD have I conveyed Your message?"

Verse 1; God says "behold my servant." Muslims have known Muhammad (pbuh), through the Qur 'an, as the servant of God, and called (Al Mustafa) which means the "chosen one". This chapter reveals many covenants, God made to the Gentiles, as well as relating God's promises to the events of the Prophet Muhammad's life, and his holy work. Muhammad was indeed a light for the world. He did destroy idols, 630 A.D. and he did bring praise to one God (Allah).

From verse 11-13, the inhabitants of Kedar under the rule of Muhammad shall prosper as they give praise to God throughour the world (Islands).
Isaiah 42: 1-21.
1 Behold My servant, whom I uphold; Mine elect, in whom My soul delighteth; I have put My spirit upon him, he shall make the right to go forth to the nations.
2 He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the street. 
3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the dimly burning wick shall he not quench; he shall make the right to go forth according to the truth. 
4 He shall not fail nor be crushed, till he have set the rigbt in the earth; and the isles shall wait for his teaching. 
5 Thus saith God the LORD, He that created the heavens, and stretched them forth, He that spread forth tbe earth and that which cometh out of it, He that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and spirit to them that walk therein: 
6 I the LORD have called thee in righteousness, and have taken hold of thy hand, and kept thee, and set thee for a covenant of the people, for a light of the nations;
7 To Open the blind eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the dungeon, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison-house.
8 I am the LORD, that is My name; and My glory will I not give to another, neither My praise to graven images.
9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things I do I declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.
10 Sing unto the LORD a new song, and His praise from the end of the earth; ye that go down to the sea, and all that is therein, the isles, and the inhabitants thereof.
11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice, the villages that Kedar dothinhabit; let the inhabitants of Se1a exult, let them shout from the top of the mountains.
12 Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare His praise in the islands.
13 The LORD will go forth as a mighty man, He will stir up jealousy like a man of war; He will cry, yea, He will shout aloud, He will prove Himself mighty against His enemies.
14 I have long time held My peace, I have been still, and refrained Myself; now will I ery like a travailing woman, gasping and panting at once.
15 1 will make waste mountains and hills, and dry up all their herbs; and I will make the rivers islands, and will dry up the pools.
16 And I will bring the blind by a way that they knew not, in paths that they knew not will I lead them; I will make darkness light before them, and rugged places plain. These things will I do, and I will not leave them undone.
17 They shall be turned back, greatly ashamed, that trust in graven images, that say unto molten images: 'Ye are our gods.'
18 Hear, ye deaf: and look, ye blind, that ye may see. 
19 Who is blind, but My servant? Or deaf, as My messenger that I send? Who is blind as he that is wholehearted, and blind as the LORD'S servant? 
20 Seeing many things, thou observest not; opening the ears, he heareth not. 
21 The LORD was pleased, for His righteollsness' sake, to make the teaching great and glorious..

Sura 9: 117-118.
Sura 9 
117. Allah turned with favour to the Prophet, the Muhajirs, and the Ansar,- who followed him in a time of distress, after that the hearts of a part of them had nearly swerved (from duty); but He turned to them (also): for He is unto them Most Kind, Most Merciful. 118. (He turned in mercy also) to the three who were left behind; (they felt guilty) to such a degree that the earth seemed constrained to them, for all its spaciousness, and their (very) souls seemed straitened to them,- and they perceived that there is no fleeing from Allah (and no refuge) but to Himself. Then He turned to them, that they might repent: for Allah is Oft-Returning, Most Merciful.

Only Prophet Muhammad and Prophet Abraham (pbut) destroyed idols, Isaiah 42:17
Sura 21: 57-58.
Sura 21
57. "And by Allah, I have a plan for your idols - after ye go away and turn your backs" .. 58. So he broke them to pieces, (all) but the biggest of them, that they might turn (and address themselves) to it Isaiah praying in the same fashion as the Muslims do. According to Islam, all prophets prayed in the same way and Muhammad (pbuh) practiced the same prayer as all other prophets. Isaiah prophesized the coming of the last prophet (Muhammad).

  1. Prophecy Servant of God
    ` ` ` ` ` ` ` `
    word Atmak not necessarily means ‘whom I uphold’ but is infact a name

    the writing of Atmak is אתמך
    the writing of Ahmad is אחמד

    Isaiah 42:1
    God says
    “Behold, 'My Servant' (pronounced as Abd-ee), ‘whom I uphold’ (pronounced as Atmak);

    God mentioning about the coming of His servant
    Behold My Servant Ahmad (Isaiah 42:1) - so who is this Ahmad as in God'servant?

    He is none other than
    Abd-Allah Ahmad (Servant of God, Ahmad) - Prophet Muhammad s.a.w
