Muhammad (pbuh) the Universal Messenger -In The Hindu Scriptures.

MUHAMMAD (PBUH) PROPHESIED IN HINDU SCRIPTURES:

Muhammad peace be upon him is prophesied as ‘Kalki Autar’ in the many books of the Hindu Scriptures. It also mentions that He will be the last messenger ‘Antum Rashi’ of God. The Concept of the oneness of God, that God is One is clear in the various books of sanatan dharm (Hinduism), But some hindus believe in the existence of three Gods, 1000 Gods and some in 330 million Gods.

The learned Hindu believes who is well versed in their scriptures insist that the hindu should believe and worship one God. In the sacred scripture it is mentioned many times the Oneness of God, that God does not have any images, and worshiping created things leads you to darkness. But still the bulk of humans insist in worshiping man and monkeys, snakes, elephants, cows, idols, devils. The sun, moon, stars and fire. Instead the worship of the one true Almighty God, The Cherisher, The Sustainer, The Nutrisure and The Creater, The Lord. The One who created everything.

1. Muhammad (pbuh) prophesied in Bhavishya Purana:

According to Bhavishya Purana in the Prati Sarag Parv III, Khand 3, Adhyay 3, Shalokas 5 to 8

“A Malechha (belonging to a foreign country and speaking a foreign language) spiritual teacher will appear with his companions, His name will be Mohammad. Raja (Bhoj) after giving this Maha Dev Arab (of angelic disposition) a bath in the ‘panchgavya’ and the Ganges water (i.e. purging him of all sins) offered him the presents of his sincere devotion and showing him all reverence said, “I make obeisance to thee, ‘O ye! The pride of mankind, the dweller in Arabia, ye have collected a great force to kill the devil and you yourself have been protected from the malechha opponents”.

Spiritual Teacher

He will appear with his companions. Muhammad is a spiritual teacher not just for his companions, nor just Arabs and Muslims, but for the whole of mankind. The first revelation that was taught to the world was, worship to one absolute God. ‘Read! In the name of your Lord who created: He created man from a clinging form. Read! Your Lord is the Most Bountiful One who taught by means of the pen, who taught man what he did not know. ‘ Quran 96:1

Name of Prophet

The prophesies clearly stated the name of the Prophet as Muhammad and he will belong to Arabia (sandy track) and mentions the companions of Muhammad peace be upon him.

The Pride of Mankind

There is no doubt that Muhammad pbuh is the pride of mankind and has reproved the world from sin. And God Almighty said: O Muhammad “You have indeed in the messenger of Allah, a beautiful pattern (of conduct).” (Al Qur’an 33:21). “And that he is has a exalted standard of character.” (Al Qur’an 68:4).

He will kill the devil

And Muhammad peace be upon him abolished the idol worship and all sorts of vices. And cleaned the first house of God Almighty from idols. ‘O ye who believe! Truly the pagans are unclean; so let them not, after this year of theirs approach the Sacred Mosque (Kaaba at Makkah).’ Quran 9:28

Protected against the opponent

He was protected against his enemy by the grace and power of Almighty God. One man against the whole world, how is it possible, surely he is protected by Almighty God.

Bath in Panchgavya

The Prophet did not physically take a bath in the Panchgavya and the water of Ganges. Since the water of Ganges is considered holy, taking bath in the Ganges is an idiom, which means washing away sins or immunity from all sorts of sins. Here the prophecy implies that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was sinless, i.e. Maasoom. If we take it literally that a man will become sinless once he bathes in the Panchgavya and water of the Ganges, then the courts of justice can take the criminals and bathe them in the Panchgavya and the water of Ganges and they will become sinless. It is illogical so we cannot take it to mean literally, so as this is only a idiom.

2. Muhammad (pbuh) prophesied in Bhavishya Purana:

According to Bhavishya Purana in the Pratisarag Parv III, Khand 3, Adhyay 3 Shalokas 10 to 27 Maharishi Vyas has prophesied: “The Malechha have spoiled the well-known land of the Arabs. Arya Dharma is not to be found in the country.

Before also there appeared a misguided fiend whom I had killed; he has now again appeared being sent by a powerful enemy. To show these enemies the right path and to give them guidance the well-known Mohamad (Mohammad) who has been given by me, the epithet of Brahma, is busy in bringing the ‘Pishachas’ to the right path.

O Raja, you need not go to the land of the foolish Pishachas, you will be purified through my kindness even where you are. At night, he of the angelic disposition, the shrewd man, in the guise of a pischacha said to Raja Bhoj, O Raja! Your Arya Dharma has been made to prevail over all religions, but according to the commandments of Ishwar Parmatama, I shall enforce the strong creed of the meat eaters.

My followers will be men circumcised, without a tail (on his head), keeping beard, creating a revolution announcing Adhan (call for prayer) and will be eating all lawful things. He will eat all sorts of animals except swine.

They will not seek purification from the holy shrubs, but will be purified through warfare. On account of their fighting the irreligious nations, they will be known as Musalmaans. I shall be the originator of this religion of the meat-eating nation.”

The Prophecy states that

(i) The evildoers have corrupted the Arab land.

(ii) Arya Dharma is not found in that land.

(iii) The present enemies will be destroyed just as the previous enemies like Abraha had perished.

The Qur’an speaks about these sorts of previous enemies in Surah Al Fil:

“Seest thou not how thy lord dealt with the Companions of the elephant? Did He not make their treacherous plan go astray? And He sent against them flights of Birds Striking them with stones of baked clay Then did he make them like an empty field Of stalk and straw, (of which the corn) has been eaten up. (Al Qur’an 105:1-5)

(iv) Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) has been given the title Brahma to guide the opponents of truth.

(vi) The Indian Raja need not go to Arab land since his purification will take place in India after the Musalmaan will arise in India.

(vi) The coming Prophet will attest the truth of the Aryan faith i.e. Monotheism and will reform the misguided people.

(vii) The Prophet’s followers will be circumcised. They will be without a tale on their heads, they will keep beards and they will create a great revolution.

(viii) They will announce the adhan i.e. ‘call for prayer’.

(ix) He will only eat lawful things and animals, but will not eat pork. The Qur’an confirms this in no less than 4 different places:

In Surah Al-Baqarah chapter 2 verse 173; In Surah Al-Maidah chapter 5 verse 3; In Surah Al-Anam chapter 6 verse 145; In Surah Al-Nahl Chapter 16 verse 115 “Forbidden for you for food are dead meat, blood, flesh of swine and that on which had been invoked the name of other than Allah.”

(x) They will not purify with grass like the Hindus, but by means of sword they will fight the evil-doers.

(xi) They will be called Musalmaan.

(xii) They will be a meat-eating nation. The Qur’an permits humans to eat herbivorous animals in Surah Maidah chapter 5 verse no. 1 and in Surah Mu’minoon chapter 23 verse 21;

3. According to Bhavishya Purana Part – III, khand 1, Adhyay 3, shlokas 21-23

Corruption and persecution are in seven sacred cities of Kashi etc. India is inhabited by Rakshas, Shabar, Bhil and other foolish people. In the land of ‘Malechhas’ the followers of the ‘Malechah dharma’ (Islam) are wise and brave people. All good qualities are found in Musalmaans and all sorts of vices have accumulated in the land of the Aryas. Islam will rule in India and its island. Having known these facts O Meeni, glorify the name of the Lord”.

The Qur’an confirms: “It is He who hath sent His messenger with guidance and the Religion of Truth, to proclaim it over all religion, even though the pagans may detest (it). (Al Qur’an 9:33 and 61:9) and a similar verse ends with: ‘And enough is Allah for a witness”. (Al Qur’an 48:28)

4. In the 20th book of Atharva Veda Hymn-127,

Ssome Suktas (chapters) are known as ‘kuntap sukt’. ‘Kuntap’ means hidden glands in the abdomen. Its hidden meaning is also connected with the naval or the middle point of the earth. Makkah is called the ‘ummul Qura’, or ‘the mother of the towns’ or ‘the naval of the earth’ in many revealed books. It was the first house of worship of the One God where Almighty God gave spiritual nourishment to the world. The Glorious Qur’an says: “The first House (of worship) appointed for men was that at Bacca (Makkah) full of blessing and of guidance for all kinds of beings.” (Al Qur’an 3:96)

Battle of the Allies described in the Vedas.

It is mentioned is Atharvaveda Book XX hymn 21, verse 6: “O Lord of the truthful! These liberators drinks, these feats of bravery and the inspiring songs gladdened thee in the field of battle. When thou renderst vanquished without fight the ten thousand opponents of the praying one, the adoring one.”

This Prophecy of the Veda describes the well-known battle

The battle of Ahzab or the battle of the Allies during the time of Prophet Muhammad (Pbuh). The Prophet was victorious without an actual conflict, which is mentioned in the Qur’an:

“When the believers saw the confederate forces they said: This is what Allah and his Messenger had promised us, and Allah and His Messenger told us what was true.” And it only added to their faith and their zeal in obedience. (Al Qur’an 33:22)

The Sanskrit word ‘karo’ in the Mantra means the ‘Praising one’ which when translated into Arabic means Ahmed, the second name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). The 10,000 opponents mentioned in the mantra were the enemies of the prophet and the Muslims were only 3000 in number. The last words of the Mantra ‘aprati ni bashayah’ means the defeat was given to the enemies without an actual fight.

Kalki Avatar

It is mentioned in Bhagvata Purana Khand 12 Adhyay 2 shlokas 18-20: “It is in the house of Vishnuyash, the noble soul Brahmana chief of the village called sambhala that Lord Kalki will be incarnated”. “The Lord of the universe, endowed with eight spiritual powers and excellence was unsurpassed in splendour and glory. Riding on a fleet horse given to him by angels, and with a sword in his hand, the saviour of the world will subdue all the miscreants”. It is mentioned in Bhagwat Purana Khand 1 Adhyay 3 Shloka 25:

“Then in the twilight of the Kali age, when kings will be as good as robbers, this protector of the world will be born of Vishnuyasa under the name Kalki“. The description of the Kalki Avatar i.e. the final Avatar is given in the verses Kalki Purana chapter 2 verses 4, 5, 7, 11 & 15.

Mother Name Sumati i.e. Aaminah

The name of his mother will be Sumati (Sanskrit)(K.P.2: 4 & 11), which means gentle and thoughtful, Prophet Muhammad’s mother’s name was Aaminah (Arabic), which means peaceful and gentle. Father’s name Vishnuyash (Sanskrit) i.e. Abdullah (Arabic)

 Fathers Name Vishnuyash i.e. Abdullah

His father’s name will be ‘Vishnuyash’ which means ‘worshipper of Vishnu’ i.e. ‘worshipper of God’. Muhammad’s father’s name was Abdullah which means ‘obedient worshipper of Allah i.e. God’.

Born in Sambhala i.e. Makkah

He will be born in a village called ‘Sambhala’ which means house of peace and security. Makkah is known as Darul Aman, which means house of peace and security.

Born in house of Chief Priest.

He will be born in the house of chief of the village Sambhala. Muhammad (pbuh) was born in the house of the chief of the Kaaba.

Born on the 12th day of Madhav i.e. Rabi-ul-Awwal.

It is prophesied that Kalki Avtar will be born on the 12th day of the bright (first) half of the month of Madhav. It is a historical fact Muhammad (pbuh) was born on the 12th day of the bright half of the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal.

He will be the Antim or final Avatar

He has been described as the ‘Antim’ i.e. ‘the last and final’ of all the Avatars. The Qur’an also mentions: Muhammad is not The Father of any Of your men, but (he is) The Messenger of Allah, And the seal (the last and final) of the Prophets, And Allah has full knowledge Of all things (Al Qur’an 33:40) Thus the Qur’an states that Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is the Seal, i.e. last and final Prophet of Allah.

He will receive knowledge on the mountain from the Lord and then go towards North and come back.

Kalki Avatar will go to the mountains and receive knowledge from Parsuram, then go towards the north and come back. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) did go to Jable-Noor i.e. the Mountain of Light, where he received the first Revelation from Archangel Gabriel. Later he went north to Madeenah and later made a victorious return to Makkah.

He will have the most graceful personality.

Kalki Avatar will have unparalleled grace. Qur’an mentions in Surah Al-Qalam chapter 68 verse 4: And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character.

Endowed with eight special qualities

Kalki Avatar will be endowed with eight special qualities. These qualities are wisdom, respectable lineage, self-control, revealed knowledge, valour, measured speech, utmost charity and gratitude. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) had all these eight special qualities.

Teacher of the World.

The Kalki Avatar will be the saviour of the world i.e. he will guide and teach the world. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) did not only guide and save the Arabs but the whole humankind. The Qur’an mentions: We have not sent thee But as a universal Messenger To men, giving them Glad tidings, and warning them (Against sin), but most men Understand not. (Al Qur’an 34:28)

Shiva will present a steed to Kalki avatar.

It is prophesied that Shiva will present an extraordinary steed to the Kalki Avatar. Muhammad (pbuh) received a steed from Almighty God, which was known as ‘Buraq’ and whose speed transcended.

He will ride a horse and carry a sword.

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) received a heavenly steed from Almighty God called ‘Buraq’ on which he made his heavenly journey known as ‘Miraaj’ or the ‘Ascension to the heavens’. Moreover, we also learn from the history of the Prophet that he himself took part in battles, most of which were fought in self-defence, and on many such occasions, he rode a horse and carried a sword in his hand.

He will subdue the wicked

It is mentioned that Kalki Avatar will subdue the wicked. It was prophet Muhammad (pbuh) who purified (transformed) bandits and miscreants and established them on the path of truth. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) came at a time, which was known as ‘Yaumul-Jahiliyah’, which means the “age or era of ignorance”. People indulged in various types of vices. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) brought them from darkness to light.

He will overpower the Devil with four companions

It is prophesied that Kalki Avatar, with four of his companions, will disarm Kali i.e. the devil. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), with his four most trusted companions, fought against the mischief and the evil of the devil. These four companions were Abu Bakr, Umar, Uthman and Ali (may Allah be pleased with them all). These four companions later became the first four Khalifas and spread the religion of Islam. In Islamic parlance these four are referred to as ‘the rightly guided Caliphs’.

He will be assisted by angels.

The Kalki Avatar will be assisted by angels in the battlefield. In the battle of Badr, Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) was assisted by angels who descended from the heavens. This is also mentioned in the Qur’an in: Surah Ale- Imran chapter 3 verse 123-125 Surah Al- Anfal chapter 8 verses 8 & 9
