Paraclete[edit]

Some editors ,who are not aware of the fact that according to muslims Jesus foretold the coming of Prophet of Islam, are removing/reverting/editing the content which shows this. I would like to ask these said editors to kindly read https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paraclete. (Yes I added link instead of blue text). Thank you for your help in this article, just make sure you are not deleting sourced information.FreeatlastChitchat (talk) 03:44, 1 January 2015 (UTC)

No one is removing text that says that Muslims believe that Jesus foretold the coming of Muhammed. Please read the sourced and cited text that is being reverted to, which clearly states that there is a traditional understanding that Jesus foretold the coming of Muhammad. However, your interpretation, or any other Wikipedia editor's interpretation of the Quran itself is original research. We quote scholars that interpret the Quran, not Wikipedia editors.—Kww(talk) 05:26, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
Ty for pointing it out. I have added a secondary source where the scholar interprets the Quran.FreeatlastChitchat (talk) 05:47, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
You added a self-published unreliable source, FreeatlastChitchat. Why do you insist on changing this text when nothing it says appears to be wrong?—Kww(talk) 05:53, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
Kww. According to your edits the article will read as "however, this is a traditional understanding and not declared in the Quran." I want this removed. This is present in the Holy Quran. As you did not like my source I will give three more here. Please pick one of them and I will add this to augment the other source. Ty for your help in sourcing.

I could accept a wording that said something like "scholars debate whether this traditional understanding is supported by the text of the Quran" or something similar. I can see your point that saying that it is definitely not there may be too strong, but surely you can see that many of the sources you are providing are not definitively saying that it is there, either.—Kww(talk) 16:45, 1 January 2015 (UTC)
Agreed. How about the statement that "Some traditional scholars are of the view that this prophecy is present in the Chapter 61, verse 6 of the Quran". FreeatlastChitchat (talk) 03:36, 3 January 2015 (UTC)
I have included cited content regarding the Greek translation into Arabic of this Greek term, in the hopes to bring balance to the scholarly point of view in this article. — Preceding unsigned comment added by HafizHanif (talkcontribs) 01:04, 30 July 2015 (UTC)
