In John -27, we read more about this coming Helper: But when the Helper comes, whom I will send to you from the Father, the Spirit of truth, who proceeds from the Father, he will bear witness about me. Moreover, the disciples bearing witness is directly linked to the coming of the promised Helper, and thus the fulfillment of this promise must be found in the disciples to whom the promise was made.
Granted, there are textual variants in the New Testament Greek manuscripts, but the core message of the New Testament remains the same — they are thus immaterial to what I’m attempting to establish here.
The Muslim interpretation also utterly ignores the overall context of the text. If the promise refers to Muhammad, then it was fulfilled six hundred years later.

The Quran is the central holy text of the Islamic religion, and is divided into chapters called “surah,” and verses, called “ayah.” According to Muslim tradition, it was revealed to Muhammad in 610 AD by the angel Gabriel, and now serves as a wellspring of divine guidance and wisdom.
According to tradition, Muhammad traveled to a place known as the Cave of Hira, which lay about two miles from Mecca on the mountain of Jabal al-Nour.
“I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now.
