prophet 2

By Shahnawaz Ahmad,

Human being is the best creation of our Almighty and its being best over all other creatures is due to the intellect and free will which the creator has endowed them with.

Since this free will may be used in either way good or bad in this world, man needed divine guidance to carry on their affairs in this world so that they get success. For divine guidance to deliver to mankind, our Creator chose messenger from amongst the people from time to time.

Several prophets came since the man set foot on this earth as Allah says to every nation we have sent messenger, the last and final one came to be named Muhammad (PBUH) who was sent to the land of Arabia in particular and to the rest of mankind in general.

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) finds mention in all the scriptures previously revealed to different prophets of the time as he was to be the final one for the whole mankind according to God’s plan. In many scriptures like Torah (revealed to Moses (PBUH) and to Bible to Jesus Christ (PBUH), the name of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is mentioned as he final one to come. Even in Hindu scriptures the name of Muhammad is mentioned as the final Messenger to come.

Following are the Hindu scriptures where his name finds mention.

According to Bhavishya Purana in the Prati Sarag Parv III Khand 3 Adhay 3 Shloka 5 to 8.
“A malecha (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 Ganga water (i.e. purifying him of all sins) offered him the present 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 malecha opponents.”
The main points mentioned in the Kuntap Suktas i.e. in Atharvaveda book 20 Hymn 127 verses 1-13 are:

  1. Mantra1
    He is Narashansah or the praised one (Muhammad). He is Kaurama: the prince of peace or the emigrant, who is safe, even amongst a host of 60,090 enemies.
  2. Mantra2
    He is a camel-riding Rishi, whose chariot touches the heaven.
  3. Mantra3
    He is Mamah Rishi who is given a hundred gold coins, ten chaplets (necklaces), three hundred good steeds and ten thousand cows
A similar prophecy is also found in Rigveda Book I, Hymn 53 verse 9:The Sanskrit word used is Sushrama, which means praiseworthy or well praised which in Arabic means Muhammad (PBUH))

Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is also prophesised in the Samveda Book II Hymn 6 verse 8:

“Ahmed acquired from his Lord the knowledge of eternal law. I received light from him just as from the sun.”

In Purana (a holy book of Hindus) it is stated that Kalki Avatar would be the last messenger (prophet) of God in this world for the Guidance of the whole world and all human beings.

It is stated in Vedas that God would teach Kalki Avatar through His messenger (angel) in a cave. Allah taught Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), through His messenger Jibraeel (Gabriel) in a cave known as Ghaar-e-Hiraa.

It may be countered that why Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) could not be the first and only prophet to mankind? In fact in the world of matter evolution is inherent so is human civilisation. Human civilisation took long years to come to where we are presently placed.Today,human mind ,we see, has reached its pinnacle and Quran exhorts human mind more than any scriptures of the world as at several places it say “Don’t you think”, “don’t you ponder”. All the previous scriptures have not been preserved in their original form and written later on by people as human mind had not matured enough to think over preserving the wordings of the creator and Quran is the only book which is preserved in its only form and preserved during the lifetime of Prophet Muhammad(PBUH).

Moreover,Quran is called the miracle ,a book being called a miracle must push human mind to look towards it as this age is the age of intellect and science and technology is the yardstick where everything is measured.

The time has come for all of us to seriously think and ponder over Quran, the final book bestowed upon Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) especially in the present scenario of the world when humanity is threatened and dissect its teachings to apply to solve the problem of humanity.

35 thoughts on “Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) in Hindu scriptures

  1. Superstitions are innate to primitive living beings…It has been observed in experiments that even pigeons become superstitious in certain conditions ..humans just take their superstitions take to another level and call it religion..Please do not accept anything without evidence..be it vedas or quoran…They are as useless a books as the book of bible or torah. A tenth standard physics book has more knowledge that all the four put together.

    1. Dear Ali, if you want to disagree with the contents of the article, that is a different subject. But you can’t equate religion, grossly, to superstitions. Religion is a very vast, comprehensive treatment of entire human existence. It has place for superstitions as well. Take away all superstitions from your life and you won’t be able to survive. The tenth standard physics book is utterly useless in comparision with any religious text. Quote a statement from it and I will tell how superstitious it itself is. Physics doesn’t deal with what is right and what is wrong. Forget that, entire science is INCOMPETENT to even understand the terms right or wrong. Religions deal with most complex and controversial aspects of life. Personally I don’t know what kind of person the author is. But why should I hurry to conclude that he is fanatic muslim trying to prove superiority of Islam? I am just assuming he is trying find the connet between the religions. So long as his intensions are noble in terms of social behavior, I don’t his superstitions. And lastly mind you, scientist are the most superstitious people as mostly firstly believe something and work hard till it proven right or wrong.

      1. Dear Joshi,
        Before concluding about the author plz analyse your Vedas you will find the same truth again. Not only Vedas but all religious books like Torah, Bible also have same information. It can not be a coincidence. I hope you will find the truth

    2. Quaran had many scientific knowledge like big bang , moon doesn’t have its own light, about multiverse about zoology and many more so first study then type

  2. Dear Shanawaj, As salamu alaikum,
    These were pin pointed many a times by Dr. Zakir Naik yet Hindus will not believe. ALLAH SWT made it clear that deaf dumb & blind will not listen. They are blind , they are dumb & they are deaf that they donot hear the call of Islam & will ridicule & kill.
    To a large extent Western white & Black listen to the call of Islam but Hindus by nature are Muslims haters. They stand by their own ego &
    proclaim that Hindus idolatry came first. in Fact Holy Adam Propagated Islam but His first Son Kabil became evil & killed his younger brother Habeel & through his generation Idol worship began.
    There were advent of 124000 Holy Prophet Holy Mohammed(MSAS) as the seal of all Prophets which is affirmed by All Religious Scriptures but they will not believe.
    Christians say Holy Jesus is the God & Jesus only.
    Therefore am sending mails to Royal family Churches Announcing
    ALLAH SWT only & Holy Quran is the guide to humanity & Holy prophet Mohammed(MSAS) is the seal of all Holy Prophets.
    I asked all Pastors & priests which Prophet prostrated to holy Jesus ?
    The rejected the Gospel of St.Barnabas & now it was discovered in Turkey & The Pope Benedict astounded the world & became a Muslim. He openly rejected Christianity.
    May ALLAH SWT guide us to truth & piety.

    1. Coward muslim like you is just barking here.Read RAMAYANA and MAHABHARAT and study about VEDIC culture.Then you will come in the true path of DHARMA.Islam is a fake religion which only creates terrorists.

      1. Brahmins are hiding what is the truth mentioned in vedas from hindu community so that they will not raise any voice against them.

      2. Islam is the true religion of God. From first man on earth to the seal of prophets they were all muslim. On day of resurrection you will get the answer but then who would have failed this whole test…

      3. ISLAM IS THE ONLY TRUE RELIGION IF YOU HAVE doubt you can look whether THERE IS SOLUTION OF HUMANITY.TRY TO UNDERSTAND THE MESSAGE AND YOU WILL FIND TRUTH IN IT THAT GOD IS ONLY ONE AND IT IS ALSO SAID IN THE vedas.NOW IF you are not interested then I don’t mind.

        1. True. Islam is The Religion, since very First Human being Created on Earth. Rest are deviations developed by humans.

  3. @RSS…..a usual frustrated grunt from an arse of a hindutwadi pig…yours is all about “mythology”…where “piyaakad” shiv chopped the had of his son-ganpathy… so who was the “original head chopper”…who is fake and who is a snake wrapped “terrorist”….it seems RSS has piles..and he is in “pain”

  4. YOU CAN GIVE A PERSON KNOWLEDGE,BUT YOU CAN’T MAKE THEM THINK.SOME PEOPLE WANT TO REMAIN FOOLS,ONLY BECAUSE THE TRUTH REQUIRES CHANGE.

    1. If you believe that the above article is true, then you all are doing a big damage to Islam. All of us know the dates when the Prophets were born. We all know the dates of civilizations and where the civilizations flourished. As per the modern historians, Rigveda dates back to some 3000 years. Jesus Christ was born only 2000 years back. Prophet Muhammad was born only 1500 years back. Vedas and Hinduism are much older than other religions in the world. If you connect Christianity or Islam to Vedas, then Christianity or Islam will become subset of Hinduism like Jainism or Budhism. If Vedas have mentioned about Prophet Muhammad, then there is a danger that Prophet Muhammad become part of Hinduism. Then you all are giving a scope to people to think that what ever is taught in the holy Quran, are simply the extracts of Vedas. You are observing many Hindu rituals during your hajj which is enough to prove that Islam is a part of Hinduism. Please don’t try to connect your religions with ours and don’t hurt others believes.

      1. Have you ever read “Riddles of Hinduism” by Dr Babasaheb Ambedkar?
        It was banned as it’s truthful scholarly Vedic references stung the RSS badly…

        1. It’s banned because Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar forgot that a Hindu king sent him abroad for studies and was brainwashed completely.

      2. You forget to mention about Prophet Adam (PBUH), both Holy Quaran and Bible mentioned about him as first Human lived on earth! What

      3. you,re going in the wrong way! Muhammad was foretold by vedas!now some part of vedas remained and some were changed but the name of MUHAMMAD who will guide all people of the world is still there

      4. Brother, God has sent Uncounted messengers few has been mentioned in the holy Books. All the messengers has delivered the pure message but with time, the Message has been changed. How can you say that hinduism being one of the very oldest religion has remained unchanged? If you are talking about the very old pure hinduism connecting to our religion that we are part of it, i can without any hesitation say that We are part of it. Just like we are part of Christianity and Judaism…
        Hope you understand….
        Think. God has given you logic to differentiate right and wrong…

      5. Strange conclusions, that the religions came after Hindusm were subsets thereof, I think you need more broad thinking and logical conclusions rather than emotionally fueld conclusions. Islam means submissions to the will of God, the absolute and the only one. Hence, all prophets who were sent to their people not to the entire humanity, who brought revelations and call their people to worhop one good are here Muslims.
        Hence, the culmination of the sum was the was the whole.. Islam is meant not for the Arabs only, but for the whole humanity.. The holistic and comprehensive message that clarifies the misconceptions, and wrong practices by the old religions, which in essence were monotheic, but changed and disecrated overtime. So Islam is the last revelation of God to humanity, and Mohd peace be upon him is the final messenger, the seal of all prophets who came before him.. Hence, the whole is better than the sum if you will.

  5. Hindus as you said are naturally inclined to hate Muslims , maybe because their forefathers and fathers taught them to hate them and maybe they were indoctrinated by their society and environment to have a very negative image of Muslims . The partition of India and creation of Pakistan can also be a reason they hate Muslims and see them trouble makers .
    But in their own themselves they know that Islam is no doubt truth and a true message of God Almighty and his only accepted religion .

    1. Around the world Just name me where and when a hindu terrorists killed. I can list alot muslim terrorist killed their own Muslim fellows.

  6. Rigved, book 1, hymn 53, verse 9
    हे प्रसिद्ध इन्द्रदेव ! आपने बन्धु-रहित ‘सुश्रवस’ राजा के सम्मुख लड़ने के लिये खड़े हुए बीस राजाओं को तथा उनके साठ हजार निन्यानवे सैनिकों को अपने दुषाप्य चक्र (व्यूह- अथवा गतिशील प्रक्रिया) द्वारा नष्ट कर दिया॥९॥

    There are no verses or hymns in the second book of saamved. Next time you find such things, use this app, only Hindi version. Also, there deliberately didn’t mention the reference in the puran or even name of the puran

    1. Hahaha, only one who’s immature and ignorant can give reference to the website , wikiislam. It’s a propaganda website with utter disinformation and misinformation. STUDY ISLAM FROM AUTHENTIC SOURCES LIKE GOOD ISLAMIC SCHOLARS OR GOOD ISLAMIC BOOKS

  7. The problem is about determining who is the last prophet. Why should be a final one?
    Once in a time, people with elevated soul born to drive humanity to understand its divine origin.
    Even modern science is about discovering, on the empirical level, the nature of the universe.
    And by doing that of God.
    It is about creating awareness through different levels of teaching in different eras and geographical areas.
    Other Holy creatures will come to guide us, do not worry!
    Be peaceful and have faith. No religions but spirituality.

  8. Why don’t you quote the exact verse in Sanskrit and translate it next time? Just putting some random text and saying it as a mention in Vedas and puranas is a weak base brother.
