The bible does not allude to muhammad anywhere in all of its 66 books, 31, 102 verses. What the bible does say that can be applied to him is what is said about all false prophets. The man does not even meet the biblical qualifications for a prophet of God. See Deuteronomy 18:22 for example: if what a prophet say is supposed to be in the name of the Lord does not come true it is not from the Lord i.e he is not a prophet of God. 

The Bible has scripture as scripture that states the qualifications of a prophet and a good article to read is found on Bible.org at http://bible.org/seriespage/3-what-prophet. 

The most important qualification is that God Himself calls His prophets first hand. He does not use a proxy. Every single prophet in the Old Testament was called and ordained first hand and officially by God. God does not send and angel to "choke" his intended prophet into service/submission as
was the case with muhammed. He is not a true prophet of God as certainly a true prophet never ever spoke ill or murdered God's true believers.

Next there is no need for muhammed to be a prophet for the last prophet put an end to the prophet order when He instituted the church and the age of grace and truth. Abraham was the first prophet and Jesus Himself was the last. Anyone after Christ professing to be a prophet of God is not being truthful and are false especially if they preach some other gospel other than Christ. Paul said let them be accursed. Galatians 1:8. The Bible proves muhammed to be a false prophet and history shows him to be a criminal.
