    Default Hindu Religious Books and Prophet Muhammad

    Hindu Religious Books and Prophet Muhammad
    (sallallahu alayhi wasallam)

    The Holy Qur'an tells us that all of the previous Messengers and Prophets knew of a Prophet who would be sent at the end of time, whose name would be Muhammad, with whom Allah, may He be glorified and exalted, would bring to an end the series of Messengers. Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

    "And (remember) when Allah took the Covenant of the Prophets, saying: 'Take whatever I gave you from the Book and Hikmah (understanding of the Laws of Allah, etc.), and afterwards there will come to you a Messenger (Muhammad SAW) confirming what is with you; you must, then, believe in him and help him.' Allah said: 'Do you agree (to it) and will you take up My Covenant (which I conclude with you)?' They said: 'We agree.' He said: 'Then bear witness; and I am with you among the witnesses (for this).'" [al-Anbiya' 21:81].

    Hence we find in the remnant that was not distorted of the previous religions clear prophecies that speak of this noble Prophet. The Torah and the Gospel are full of them, but there is no need to quote them here. Rather what concerns us is that which is mentioned in the holy books of the Hindus of clear prophecies that speak of our Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). These prophecies do not necessarily mean that all of these books are sound or true; rather they point to a few words of truth remaining in them, that was taken from the Messages and Prophets that were sent a long time ago.

    These texts have been quoted by Dr Muhammad Diya' ar-Rahman al-A'zami in his valuable book Diraasaat fi'l-Yahoodiyyah wa'l-Maseehiyyah wa Adyaan al-Hind (Studies in Judaism, Christianity and Indian Religions), p. 703-746, especially since the author is a doctor from India who is able to read those books that have not been translated into Arabic as far as we know.

    1.

    "At that time in the city of Shambhala (which means the safe land or place of peace), in the house of a man whose name is Vishnu Bhagat (meaning 'Abdullah or slave of God), who is pure of heart, in his house will be born Kalki (meaning one who is pure and free of sins and iniquities)."

    Bhagavata Purana, 2/18

    It is well-known that the name of the father of our Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) was 'Abdullah (meaning slave of Allah or servant of God), and in the Qur'an, Makkah (Mecca) is called the safe land.

    2.

    "Kalki will be born in the house of Vishnu Bhagat, from his wife Soomati, whose name means the woman of peace and security, which is the meaning of the name Aaminah."

    Kalki Purana, 2/11

    It is also well-known that the name of the mother of our Prophet Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) was Aaminah bint Wahb.

    3.

    "He will be born on the twelfth of the month called Madhva (also known as Chaitra, spring month) [which means the month that is beloved to people, which is the month of ar-Rabee' (lit. "spring")]."

    Kalki Purana, 2/15

    The books of the Prophet's biography clearly state the date of his birth, which was the twelfth of the month of Rabee' al-Awwal, although there are differences of opinion among the scholars.

    4.

    "Kalki will have eight characteristics, as follows:

    Pragya (foretell the future)

    Culinata (one of the noblest of his people)

    Indridaman (self-control)

    Shrut (receive revelation)

    Prakram (physical strength)

    Abhu bhashita (speaks little)

    Dan (generous)

    Kritagyata (acknowledges kindness)."

    All of them are a few of the attributes of Sayyiduna Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) which were acknowledged by all the Arabs who knew him, whether they entered Islam or remained disbelievers.

    5.

    "He will ride on a horse from which light comes, and no one can compete with his awe and beauty; he will be circumcised; and will destroy hundreds of thousands of wrongdoers and disbelievers

    Bhagavata Purana, 12-2-20

    Circumcision is not practised by the Hindus; rather it is an Islamic obligation upon the males of the ummah of Muhammad (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him).

    6.

    "With the help of four of his companions he will destroy the devil, and the angels will come down to earth to help him in his battles."

    Kalki Purana, 2/5-7

    The four companions of our Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) are the Rightly-Guided Caliphs who ruled after him. The scholars of Islam are unanimously agreed that they are the best of mankind after our Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him).

    7.

    "After he is born, he will go to the mountains to learn from Parasurama (meaning the great teacher), then he will go to the North, then he will return to his birthplace."

    Kalki Purana

    This is how the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him) was: he secluded himself in the cave of Hira' until Jibreel came down to him with the revelation; then he migrated to the north, to al-Madinah al-Munawwarah, then he returned to Makkah as a conqueror.

    8.

    "The people will be enchanted with the fragrance that comes from his body, for the fragrance of his pure body will mix with the air, and will delight the people."

    Bhagavata Purana, 2/2/21

    9.

    "The first one to slaughter and offer sacrifices will be Ahmadu and he will become like the sun."

    Sama Veda, 3/6/8

    10.

    "A spiritual teacher will come with his noble companions and will become famous among the people by the name of Mahaamad. The ruler will come to him saying: O desert dweller, O destroyer of the devil, performer of miracles, innocent of all evil, adhering to the truth, speaking of the knowledge of God and loving Him, peace be upon you, I am your slave and will live beneath your feet."

    Bhavishya Purana, 3/3/5-8

    11.

    "During these stages, when the time comes for the emergence of good for all mankind, then truth will be established and darkness will end with the appearance of Muhammad, and the light of understanding and wisdom will shine.

    Bhagavata Purana, 2/76

    These texts clearly mention the name of Muhammad or Ahmad, both of which are names of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him). Allah, may He be exalted, says (interpretation of the meaning):

    "...and giving glad tidings of a Messenger to come after me ['Eesa], whose name shall be Ahmad ..."

    [as-Saff 61:6].

    12.

    "Agni Devi, bringer of the bright laws, We have placed you in the middle of the earth to offer sacrifices."

    Rig Veda, 3/29/4

    13.

    In the Hotar Veda (Rig Veda), on several scattered pages, there is mention of the foretelling of Narashans (meaning the praiseworthy man). He is described as the most handsome person on earth; his light will enter every house; he will cleanse the people of sin and iniquity; he will ride camels; he will have twelve wives... "Listen, O people! Narashans will be held in high esteem... Narashans will be praised, he will migrate from among sixty thousand and ninety people... I have given Mamaha one hundred gold coins, ten garlands and three hundred horses."

    In the Seerah (biography of the Prophet (blessings and peace of Allah be upon him)), the names of his wives are given and they add up to the number mentioned.

    14.

    "A man who lived a virtuous life came to the ruler Bhoja, ruler of Sindh, in the dead of night, and said to him: O king, your religion (arya dharma) supercedes all the religions in India, but by the decree of the greatest God, I shall cause to prevail the religion of a man who will eat all kinds of good things; he is circumcised and has on his head no braid that hangs down or is tucked up, and he has a long beard. He will bring about a great upheaval, and will call out loudly to the people. He will eat all kinds of good things apart from the flesh of swine. His religion abrogates all other religions. We call them Musalay. The greatest God is the One Who revealed that religion to him."

    Bhavishya Purana, 3/3/3/23-27

    We say that the call to prayer (adhaan) and avoiding pork are among the most prominent distinguishing characteristics of Islam. Its followers are called Muslims, not Musalay, but these are similar words with the same origin.

    Prophet Muhammad is "Kalki Avatar" in Hindu Scripture

    by Ahmad Yanuana Samantho

    A pamphlet containing the following was distributed at a mosque in Chicago recently. Pundit Vedaprakash Upadhyai, a Hindu Professor, in his stunning book claims that the description of the 'AVATAR" found in the Holy Books of the Hindu religion, matches the Holy Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

    Recently in India, a fact-revealing book has been published. The book has been the topic of discussion and gossip all over the country. If the author of this were a Muslim he probably would have been arrested or murdered.

    Perhaps all copies of this book would have been confiscated. Maybe, even a ban would have been extended. A riot and violence would have broken out against the innocent Muslims and their blood would been shed.

    Amazingly the author of this book, Pundit Vedaprakash Upadhyai, is a learned and famous Hindu Professor. The book is called 'KALKI AVATAR". Pundit Vedaprakash Upadhyai is a Hindu Brahmin of Bengali origin. He is a research scholar at the Allahabad University in India.

    After years of research, he published this book and no less than eight pundits have endorsed and certified his points of arguments as authentic.

    According to the Hindu belief, the Hindu world awaits "the guide and leader" named "Kalki Avatar".

    However, the description as given in the Holy scriptures of the Hindus points only to Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) of Arabia. Therefore, the Hindus of the world should not wait any longer for the arrival of "Kalki Avatar" (the spirit) and should readily accept Prophet Muhammed (pbuh) as "Kalki Avatar". These are his facts verified and supported by eight other prominent pundits.

    What the author says is that Hindus, who are still anxiously awaiting the arrival of Kalki Avatar are simply subjecting themselves to never ending pain. Because, such a great messenger has already arrived and departed from this world fourteen centuries years ago. The author produces sound evidences from the Vedas and other Holy books of the Hindu religion in support of his claim:

    1. In the Puranas (Hindu Scriptures), it is stated that Kalki Avatar would be the last messenger of God in this world. He would be for the guidance of the whole world and all human beings;

    2. According to the Hindu religion prediction the birth of Kalki Avatar would take place in an isle, which again according to Hindu religion is Arab region;

    3. In the books of the Hindus, the names of the father and the mother of Kalki Avatar are given as VISHNU BHAGAT and SUMAANI respectively. If we examine the meaning of these names we shall come to some very interesting conclusion.

    VISHNU (Meaning GOD) + BHAGAT (Meaning SLAVE) = SLAVE of GOD = ABDULLAH (In Arabic) is the name of Prophet's Muhammad's (pbuh) father.

    SUMAANI (Meaning PEACE and CALMNESS) = AMEENAH (Meaning PEACE in Arabic) is the name of the Prophet Muhammad's (pbuh) mother.

    4. In the religious books of the Hindus, it is mentioned that the staple food of Kalki Avatar would be dates and olives and he would be the most honest and trustful person in the region. Without any doubt, Prophet Muhammad is acclaimed to possess these qualities;

    5. It is stated in the Vedas (Holy Book of the Hindu religion) that the birth of Kalki Avatar would take place in an Honourable clan. This perfectly fits the Quraysh where Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) belonged to;

    6. God would teach Kalki Avatar through His Messenger (Angel) in a cave. Allah taught Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) through His Messenger (Angel Gabriel) in a cave known as Ghaar-e-Hira.

    7. God would provide Kalki Avatar with a very speedy horse to ride and travel the world and the seven skies. Indication of Burraq (the horse) and Mee'raj (the night when Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) traveled the seven skies;

    8. God would provide Kalki Avatar with Divine Help. This was particularly proved in the "Battle of Uhud".

    9. Another dazzling account given about Kalki Avatar was that he would be born on the 12th of a month. Prophet Muhammad was born on the 12th of Rabbi-Ul -Awwal (Hijra Calendar).

    10. Kalki Avatar would be an excellent horse rider and swordsman. The author here draws the attention of the Hindus that the real days of the horses and swords have gone and the present time of guns and missiles. So it would be foolish on the part of those who still expect Kalki Avatar, who should be an excellent rider and swordsman to come. In fact, the Divine Book, the Holy Quran, contains qualities and signs attributed to Kalki Avatar reflecting on the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The Author has given numerous arguments in favour of his claim that Kalki Avatar is in fact Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and those who still await the arrival of Kalki Avatar should not waste time.

    Note:

    There is no reliable evidence on the correct birth date of the Prophet (sallallahua layhi wasalam), his date of death is recorded as 12th of Rabbi-ul-Awwal.
