Christ & Baha'u'llah by -G. Townshend- 3 Para

.."And as for Ishmael, I have heard thee: Behold I have blessed him... and will multiply him exceedingly; twelve princes shall he beget, and I will make him a great nation." (Gen xvii 20) The narrative continues (Gen xxi 20-21) "God was with the lad; and he grew,... and he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and... took him a wife out of the land of Egypt." (Mount Paran is in Arabia -Ed) (31:2) see

He became the progenitor of the people of Arabia and the twelve Princes which he begot are interpreted as the twelve Imams who followed Muhammad. (31:3)

.."the Lord thy God will raise up unto thee a Prophet from the midst of thee, of thy brethren, like unto me." (Deut xvIII 15) This refers not only to.. Jesus.. but more especially to Muhammad. Moses would have used the word "seed" if He had meant to refer to an Israelite, whereas the word "brethren" indicates that He alludes to Isaac's brother Ishmael.. He (Moses) connects Mount Paran explicitly with the Prophetic line when, in His final blessing before His death, He describes the Prophets who will follow Him: "The Lord came from Sinai (meaning Himself), and rose up from Seir... (meaning Jesus Christ); he shined forth from mount Paran (meaning Muhammad), and he came with ten thousands of saints (meaning Baha'u'llah)." (Deut xxxIII 2) (see also Qur'an Sura 26, verses 192-199) (31:4) see
