Allah and Muhammd in Hindu Religion.
Islam was the Sanatan Dharma.
Islam was the religion of Aryas.
Islam is a Real Hindu Dharma.
Hindu Scriptures Are Divine Revelation?
Few months ago, I have posted an article with the title " Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Hindu Scriptures " at this site and after passing of many months, I received an e.mail from (Mr. Kashif Iqbal) one of the visitor at understanding-islam.com, who read this article and asked my comments that, whether Hindu Scriptures are divine revelation?
In respect of that, I explained my comments with the above reference and, I want to share my comments with my other Muslim brothers as well, to know their views & comments in this regard.
I want to start my comments with the following verses from the Qur'an.
THERE IS NO NATION, THAT HAS NOT HAD A WARNER-- "We have sent with the Truth, a bearer of glad tidings and warning, for there is no nation, that has not had a warner pass away in it .." ( 35:24 )
-- "We sent a Messenger to every nation, sayings worship Allah and avoid the idols. Amongst them were some whom Allah guided, and some justly disposed to error,.Travel in the land and see what was the end of those belied ( the revelation and the Prophets ) "( 16:36 )
-- "And messengers (Prophets who received revealed books) we have mentioned unto thee (Muhammad) before. And Messengers We have not mentioned unto thee .." (4:164 )
-- "Blessed is He who has sent down the Criterion to His worshiper (Prophet Muhammad), that he is a warner to all mankind." (25:1)
-- "We sent thee not but as a Mercy for all the creatures" (21:107)
-- "We sent thee not but as a bringer of good tidings and a Warner unto all mankind."(34:28)
After understanding the above verses, the Quran says that God has sent His Warner, Apostle and Messengers to every nation in this world for guidance and some of the name and stories of Messengers are mentioned in the Quran and some of the Messengers have not been mentioned by God in the Quran. And in the last verses God informed us that, Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is not only a warner for Muslims, but for all mankind (nations).
So, how is it possible, that God has ignored the Hindu nation without any Warner. The possibility is there, that God has sent any Messenger with some Sahifa or Scripture, in which the indications or signs of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) were mentioned. And, later on after passing thousands of years their followers changed the message according to their own will, and manipulate and distorted the message and mixed with some other man-made religion, for their benefit.
To understand how a nation could change their divine revelation according to their own vain and unreal desires, lets take the example of the Christians (People of the Scripture) to understand how Hindu Scripture could also be consider as divine revelation?
HOW JESUS (PBUH)'S ISLAM CHANGED IN TO CHRISTIANITYAfter the original first period of each religion, some selfish people took the religion into their hand, and changed its original shape by altering and adding, as it happened with the religion of Prophet Esa (PBUH). After 300 years "Qustantaneen", a king of Greece and also a Philosopher, entered the religion of Jesus and altered it altogether, by introducing many changes. He invented many false laws and mixed in it. He sets it right, the eating of swine or pig, under his order Christian started to say prayers towards the East instead of the West. He made Churches, monasteries, shrines and convents the picture - house, picture galleries. He also made addition of ten fasts. Moreover the Christian themselves added things from Greek Philosophy and Buddhism and also added the concept of Trinity.
Thus the religion of Jesus did not at all remain the religion of Jesus.
PEOPLE OF THE BOOK ARE NOT FOLLOWING THE WAY OF WORSHIP INSTRUCTED BY THEIR PROPHETToday the way in which Christians are offering their prayers in Church was not actually the way, which Prophet Esa (PBUH) directed. The Esa (PBUH) and Mariam (PBUH) were commanded to observe Salat prayers and Zakat.
-- "O Mariam, you shall obey your Lord, and shall prostrate and bow with those who bow down." (3:43)
-- "(Esa (PBUH) said) God has made me blessed wherever I go, He commanded me to observe the Salat Prayers and Zakat charity for as long as I live .." (19:31)
But people of the Book lost Salat prayer of their Prophet and invented their own.
-- "Generations came thereafter who lost the Salat prayer and pursued their lusts (desires). "(19:59)
The followers of Prophet Esa (PBUH) have changed the message of God, according to their own vain desires and blended the message of Islam with the man-made religion Christianity and made their Prophet Esa (PBUH) Son of God and some time God. But, The Quran says that, Prophet Esa (PBUH) was not the Son of God and nor the God, but he was just the Messenger of God and he preached Islam, (not Christianity).
GOD CONDEMNED PEOPLE OF THE BOOK FOR MAKING CHANGES IN THEIR RELIGION AND BOOKSLets take a look at some verses from The Qur'an and Hadith which condemns Christians & Jews (People of Scripture) that they have changed their religion and Holy Scripture.
-- "O people of the Scripture! Stress not in your religion other than the truth, and follow not the vain desires of folk who erred of old and led many astray ...." (5:77)
-- "And Lo! There is a party of them who distort the scripture with their tongues, that ye may think what they say, is from the scripture, when it is not from the scripture, And say it is from Allah, when it is not from Allah and they speak a lie concerning Allah knowingly "(3:78)
-- "O people of Scripture! Do not exaggerate in your religion nor utter aught concerning Allah save the truth..." (4:171)
-- "Do you then hope they will believe in you, when some of them have already heard the word of Allah and knowingly tampered with it. After they understood it ..." (2:75)
-- "They changed the words from their places and have forgotten a portion what they were reminded."( 5:13)
-- "Some Jews tampered with the words (altering) their places..." (4:46)
-- " Woe to those who write the Book with their own hands and then say, this is from Allah, in order to gain a small price for it .." (2:79)
-- "The people of the book changed its actual text " (Bukhari, Sahih. Number 29)
WHY GOD HAS TAKEN THE RESPONSIBILITY TO SAFEGUARD THE QUR'AN?This is why God has taken the responsibility to safeguard The Holy Qur'an.
-- " We have sent down the revelation and We will surely preserve it." (15:9)
-- " It is a Glorious Qur'an, in a Book Protected (from alteration)." (56:77.78).
Due to this fact, the followers of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) could not change their religion & Qur'an according to their will, as the previous nations did, because after Qur'an no further revelation have to come.
MEANINGS OF HINDU. The word Hindu is not a religious word. It is secular in origin. It has been derived from the word Indo, Sindhu, which is the name of a major river that flows in the northwestern region of the Indian subcontinent. The ancient Greeks and Armenians used to refer the people living beyond the river Sindhu as Hindus and gradually the name struck. After centuries the Aryans came down, and where they started living, they named the place Aryavrat and long afterwards it was named as Bhartvarsh. When the Muslims came to the sub continent they called the people living in the region as Hindustanis to distinguish them from the foreign Muslims. Subsequently when the British established their rule, they started calling the local religions collectively under the name of Hinduism. So whosoever was living across the Sindhu was called Indu & now Hindu whether Muslim, Christian etc.
It is interesting to note that the word is neither Sanskrit nor Dravidian and did not originate in India. The word Hindu is also not mentioned in Hindu Scriptures. If, we go by the original definition of the word Hindu, any one who lives in the subcontinent is generally a Hindu, whatever religion he or she practices. It took the shape of an "Ism" lately, by Pandits and Brahmins. The rites, sects and ceremonies prevailing in the valey of River Sind were named as Hinduism. It means Hinduism in itself is nothing. It is a formulation and manipulation of Pandits and Brahmins and not of any Avtar or God.
THE HISTORY OF HINDUISMHinduism is one of the oldest religions of the world. The European historians of early 20th Century grudgingly accepted the period around 2500 B.C.But many present day scholars, especially from India, do not agree with this opinion. Hinduism can be better estimated from the astronomical evidence available in the Hindu Scriptures. These evidences suggest that the Hinduism has a long and checkered history of at least 6,000 years or more. Hinduism is not a religion, but a set of beliefs, rites, ceremonies, traditions and cultures which have evolved over a period of time. It is a way of life, based upon a local group of religious movements evolved in the Indian subcontinent over a vast period of time. It is not based upon a single scripture. No definition of Hinduism truly justifies the true meaning and significance of Hinduism. Murti or Idol worship was added by Pandits & Brahmins. Now, it is for Hindu scholar's to think, as to where they stand.
HINDUS ARE NOT FOLLOWING THEIR RELIGION.-- "As butter lies hidden within milk, The Self is hidden in the hearts of all. Churn the mind through meditation on it; Light your fire through meditation on it: The Self, all whole, all peace, all certitude."[Amritabindu Upanishad]
It was informed to the people that, God is in your heart and mind so perceive HIM through MEDITATION. But, during the materialistic period this traditional task has been ear marked tough by mostly saints & public under influence of so called saints. For-example Tulsi says in Ramayan "DWIJ SHRUTI BECHAK" i.e., present Gurus have sold Vedas means they never study Vedas & do know nothing about Vedas. In next saying "SHRUTI BIRODH RAT SAB NAR NARI" means man, woman & their children have taken bold step against the Vedas. Up to the time of Mahabharta there was no temple. Thereafter the knowledge of Vedas decreased & between two to three thousands years the temple has been made. The books (Mahabharta & Bhagwat Geeta etc ) came after the Vedas have been described and explained on the basis of sects or self made views of present so called saints, whereas the said books written by ancient Rishis are totally on Vedas & not based on present sects. After MAHABHARAT war the knowledge of Vedas did minimize and almost came to an end, and therefore, so many sects and way of worship came in existence. So, the reason of the temples and murti is only due to the decrease and little knowledge of Vedas, for the last about three thousands years, because before this period there was no temple. Temple provision is only in the sects made by Pandits and not in the Vedas & in the above said books. So when there was the knowledge of Vedas, only ONE God being was worshiped.

PROPHECY OF PROPHET MUHAMMAD (PBUH)The Quran inform us that, prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is not only warner for one nation but, for the whole mankind, it further inform that, the prophecy of Muhammad (PBUH) was foretold in the previous Scriptures revealed on different nations. But, beside this these nation accept Muhammad (PBUH)'s prophecy they rejected him, when he came with clear signs of his prophecy. Lets examine the verses of Quran witnessing the prophecy of Muhammad (PBUH).
-- " Blessed is He who has sent down the Criterion to His worshiper (Prophet Muhammad), that he is a warner to all mankind." (25:1)
-- "We sent thee not but as a Mercy for all the creatures" (21:107)
-- "We sent thee not but as a bringer of good tidings and a Warner unto all mankind."(34:28)
-- "Those who follow the Messenger, the unlettered Prophet, whom they find mentioned in their own (scriptures) in the law and the Gospel".(7.157)
-- Say: "Do you see? Whether this message be from Allah (God Almighty), and yet you reject it, and a witness from among the children of Israel bore witness of one like him...." (Qur'an, Al-Ahqaf 46:10)
-- "And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said, 'O Children of Israel! I am the messenger of Allah (sent) to you, confirming the Law (which came) before me and giving glad tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed.' But when he came to them with clear signs, they said, 'This is evident sorcery!" (61.6)
PROPHECY IN BIBLE:-- "I will raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him." [Deuteronomy 18:18]
-- "And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not harken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him."[Deuteronomy 18:19]
-- "And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, "Read this", I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned."[book of Isaiah chapter 29 verse 12]. When Archangel Gabrail commanded Muhammad (pbuh) by saying Iqra - "Read (Prophet Muhammad) in the Name", of Allah"(96.1) he replied, "I am not learned".
-- "Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem."[Song of Solomon chapter 5 verse 16:]" Translation :- His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem."
-- "And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever." [John chapter 14 verse 16:]
-- "But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me."[Gospel of John chapter 15 verse 26]
"Ahmed" or "Muhammad" meaning "the one who praises" or "the praised one" is almost the translation of the Greek word Periclytos. In the Gospel of John 14:16, 15:26, and 16:7. The word 'Comforter' is used in the English translation for the Greek word Paracletos which means advocate or a kind friend rather than a comforter. Paracletos is the warped reading for Periclytos. Jesus (pbuh) actually prophesised Ahmed by name. Even the Greek word Paraclete refers to the Prophet (pbuh) who is a mercy for all creatures.
-- "I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth is come, he will guide you unto all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me".[Gospel of John chapter 16 verse 12-14:] The Sprit of Truth, spoken about in this prophecy referes to none other than Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
--" And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran, and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a fiery law for them." [Deuteronomy 33:2]
The ten thousands Saints refer to the ten thousands companions who accompanied the Prophet (pbuh) when he entered Makkah during Fateh Makkah which was a unique victory in the history of mankind in which there was no blood shed.
PROPHECY IN HINDU SCRIPTURES-- "A malechha (belonging to a foreign country and speaking foreign language) spiritual teacher will appear with his companions. His name will be MAHAMMAD. Raja (Bhoj) after giving this Mahadev 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 (idol worshipers, pagans).' 'O Ye! the image of the Most Pious God the biggest Lord, I am a slave to thee, take me as one lying on thy feet.'.."
-- "The Malechhas have spoiled the well-known land of the Arabs. Arya Dharma is not to be found in that country. Before also there appeared a misguided fiend whom I had killed [note: e.g., Abraha Al-Ashram, the Abyssinian viceroy of Yemen, who attacked Mecca]; 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 MAHAMAD (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 Pishacha said to Raja Bhoj, "O Raja! Your Arya Dharma has been made to prevail over all religions, but according to the commandments of 'Ashwar Parmatma (God, Supreme Spirit), I shall enforce the strong creed of the meat-eaters. My follower will be a man circumcised, without a tail (on his head), keeping beard, creating a revolution, announcing call for prayer (Adan) 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. Because of their fighting the irreligious nations, they will be known as Musalmans (Muslims). I shall be the originator of this religion of the meat-eating nation." (Bhovishya Puran: Prati Sarg, Part III:3,3, 5-27 ).
-- "AHMAD acquired religious Law (Shariah) from his Lord. This religious Law is full of wisdom. I receive light from him just as from the Sun.."(Sama Veda II:6,8)
-- The Sanskrit word used is Sushrama, which means praiseworthy or well praised which in Arabic means Muhammad (pbuh). [Rigveda Book I, Hymn 53 verse 9]
-- "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. He is a camel-riding Rishi, whose chariot touches the heaven. [Atharvaveda book 20 Hymn 127 verses 1-13]
The Sanskrit word Narashansah means 'the praised one', which is the literal translation of the Arabic word Muhammad (pbuh). The Sanskrit word Kaurama means 'one who spreads and promotes peace'. The holy Prophet was the 'Prince of Peace' and he preached equality of human kind and universal brotherhood. Kaurama also means an emigrant. The Prophet migrated from Makkah to Madinah and was thus also an Emigrant. He will be protected from 60,090 enemies, which was the population of Makkah. The Prophet would ride a camel. This clearly indicates that it cannot be an Indian Rishi, This mantra gave the Rishi's name as Mamah. No rishi in India or another Prophet had this name Mamah which is derived from Mah which means to esteem highly, or to revere, to exalt, etc. Some Sanskrit books give the Prophet's name as 'Mohammad'
-- "The wagon-possessor, the truthful and truth-loving, extremely wise, powerful and generous, Mamah [Mohammad] has favored me with his words. The son of the All-powerful, possessing all good attributes, the mercy for the worlds has become famous with ten thousand" [companions]. [Rig Veda V, 27, Mantra 1]
The ten thousands Saints refer to the ten thousands companions who accompanied the Prophet (pbuh) when he entered Makkah during Fateh Makkah which was a unique victory in the history of mankind in which there was no blood shed.
-- "He gave the Mamah Rishi a hundred gold coins, ten chaplets, three hundred steeds and ten thousand cows". [Kuntap Sukt, Atharva Veda, Mantra 3]
He is given 100 gold coins, which refers to the believers and the earlier companions of the Prophet during his turbulent Makkan life. Later on due to persecution they migrated from Makkah to Abysinia. Later when Prophet migrated to Madinah all of them joined him in Madinah.
The 10 chaplets or necklaces were the 10 best companions of the Holy Prophet (pbuh) known as Ashra-Mubbashshira (10 bestowed with good news).
The Sanskrit word Go is derived from Gaw which means 'to go to war'. A cow is also called Go and is a symbol of war as well as peace. The 10,000 cows refer to the 10,000 companions who accompanied the Prophet (pbuh) when he entered Makkah during Fateh Makkah.
CONCLUSIONThe above references from Bible and Hindu Scriptures prove that both nations, people of the book and Hindus were foretold about the worship of One God and also fortold about the Prophet Muhammad (PBUH). But, both of them denied their scriptures in the same way that, they have invented their own rules and regulations in the religion, and changed their religion according to their own materialistic and vain desires. Christians have made the idols (images) of Prophet Esa (PBUH) and worshipped him as a God and Son of God. On the other side, Hindus have also made idols (images) of their Prophets or Avtars Ram & Karishana etc and worshipped them as God. This is, how both true religions converted in to man-made religion.
If, God does not tell us about the stories of Prophet Esa (PBUH) and Christians in The Quran, we might be knowing Prophet Esa (PBUH) as today we know about RAM, KARISHANA in Hindu Scriptures & GAUTAM BUDH in Budhism, and if some day any scholar studies the old testament of Bible, in which there were indications about the coming of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH), we might be talking about Muhammad (PBUH) in Christians Scripture, like today we are talking about Muhammad (PBUH) in Hindu Scripture.
In conclusion of my above discussion whether Hindu Scripture is a divine revelation, I mentioned the possibilites with comparison of Christianity, that when the true religion of Prophet Esa (PBUH) has been changed by the Christian's Fathers, so it is possible that, the Hinduism might also has been changed by its Pandits and Brahmins from its true concepts. We can call Bible and other Holy books which are by name mentioned in The Quran as a divine revelation, because The Quran is the witness of Bible and other Holy Books & Sahifas revealed on previous Prophet's nations by name. But we are unable to decide Hindu Scriptures as divine revelation by ourself, because God did not inform us in the Quran about such " Vedas ". As we have believed in all the Messengers and Holy Books, which are clearly mentioned in The Quran by name, and which are not clearly mentioned as well. But, unless we don't get any authentic reference from Islamic history about those Messengers & Holy Books which are not mentioned in The Quran by name, we are unable to declare any other book which relates to any other religion as divine revelation.
As for as the future indications of Muhammad (PBUH) in Hindu Scripture are concerned, we can not deny because indications of Prophet Muhammad(PBUH) were also mentioned in other previously revealed Books, which later on were tampered by their nations, as God inform us in The Quran.
The thing which is needed to do is, that our Muslim Scholars should make diligent research from the whole Islamic history about different nations, as well as they should also make research The history of Hindu Scriptures (Vedas) to find out the source of information, that how the name of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) is found in Hindu Scripture? I hope they will find some positive answer in this regard. The muslim scholars should also have to take steps to preach the Hindus with this reference and fact, that in their Scriptures worship of one God is allowed to do, so they should discard idol or murti worship and worship one God according to their Scriptures. Secondly, the Avtar (Prophet) which has been mentioned by name "Muhammad" & "Ahmed" in their Scriptures and the indications about his Prophet hood mentioned in their Scriptures have been completed 1,400 years before, with the advent of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) and the religious law (The Quran) has been revealed on him. So, now Hindus should accept Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) as their last Avtar (Prophet), and the Quran as the last revealed Scripture. I hope, muslim scholars will find positive answer, because now Hindus have no excuse to accept Islam. It will certainly be a great achivement for the Muslim scholars.
From time immemorial, the minds of concious and incuisitive human beings have been pondering to know the unknown and be acquinted with the unacquinted. Many men, who devoted to acquire knowledge, have even sacrificed their dearest lives for the pursuit of knowledge. The adventure of understanding and unveiling the universal truth has not yet been stopped. It is a matter of great joy that many scientific theories, discoveries and information of the modern age are making the solutions to the problems relating to the Creator (God), His creations and the moral and ethical values of life, much easier. However, to avoid the complexity of this problem, one should have an unbiased mind an neutral mentality. Otherwise, it would be very difficult on one hand to reach the intended goal, and on the other hand there would be every possibilty that the decision made by a biased person may contain error. To be able to correctly evaluate the thoughts and systems on moral and ethical values of human life, one has to leave the religious biasness and envy aside from the heart.
Many religions and religious leaders have emerged on this war-, battle-, and quarrel-trodden Earth. The intentions of these eligious leaders or founders were to eastablish peace, harmony and equality in the society. However, it is not correct to cite that all of them had mission, which is universal and good for all mankind. Because many of them had so much love for their own tribes or sects that the attempt of eastablishing universal peace, goodness and equity for all mankind has been much overshadowed by the seeking of his own good.Although, thousands of isms and religions were born for the different ideologies of the religious leaders, there is no denying the fact that there is some Supreme being or Creator of the Universe. Many have accepted that Supreme Being as the Creater without even knowing and have directed and encouraged their followers to follow their foot-steps. Not only that, many of them have admitted spontaneously that the goodness of this life and the life hereafter lies in following the path directed by one great man, who would be the religios leader for all mankind. Now, it is obvious to raise the question as to who that Supreme Being of the Universe is and also who that accepted great man and religios leader is!Vedas, Puranas and Upanishads are the sacred religious books of the people of Vedic religion (i.e. Hindu Religion). Let us see how these religious books have cited good examples by describing the oneness of God and accepting the best guidance by the last Prophet, the great human being 'MUHAMMAD' , who is the saviour of all mankind.Sloakas from Rig Veda:
"Jonoh: Pita janita ShobidhataDhamaney Veda-Vubanani Biswa.Jo Devanang Namadha ek ebotangSamprashang Vubana jantrana."
Translation: He who is our sustainer, father and Creator, He who is the God of the Universe, exists everywhere. He is well aware of the whole creation in the universe. He is one and second to none. The earth asks about him.Another sloakas from Rig Veda:

However, it is a matter of great pity that although there are verses concerning Allah and the Oneness of Allah in some parts of the Hindu religious boks like Vedas, Gita, Puranas etc., later some priests and ill-fated pundits have corrupted them with Dualism, Trinity, Naturalism, Pluralism and the 'ism of everything is God' and thus, have tried to plunge mankind into a great and grievious mistake. For example,In Brhma-Baibarta Puran it has been written:
"Veda Shashtrartha Tattyagga Jatratatrassramey BasanIee Haiba Lokatishthashcha Brahmabhuai Kollotey."
Translation: He (any Brahmin), who knows the meaning and theory of the Vedas, becomes the Brahma (GOD) wherever he may be.
From Vedanta Darshan:
"Sharbang Khalwidang Brahma"
Translation: Everything in this world is God.
Also, from Gita:
Translation: It is the Basudeva (the earth), which is everything.
From Vagabat Purana:
"Krishnamena Mobehi Twang Antmannama Khilantmanam"
Translation: Consider Krishna (a person) as the Soul of the Creator. It is he, who is the Soul of the Universe.Thus, the ism of 'Everything is God' has been proclaimed by many mantras (verses) of the religious books by declaring everything on earth as the incarnation of God. There are some verses in Vedas, which describes the Sun, Air, Rudra, Dawn, Indra, Rice, Fire etc. as Brahma or God. In fact, the rishis (some Hindu religious prophets) used to worship natural objects and power by looking at their strength and considering them as the manifestation of God. This is how they have accepted and admitted Pluralism or 'Many God-head' instead of Monoethism or Oneness of God, and thus have pushed their people towards a grievious mistake and anarchy.However, many of the great Munis and rishis, who have written Vedas and Puranas have not stopped by merely proclaiming the glory of One God (Allah), and His Oneness and Sovreignty, they have also presented clear-cut indication of the coming of a Great Prophet, whose name would be MUHAMMAD and who will be the best guide of Mankind ever. For example-Look at the following Sanskrit Sloakas from Sama Veda:" 'Ma' dau bartita Deva, 'Da'-Karante Prakirtiat, Brishanang Vakhwaet, Soda Veda Shastray Chasmrita"Meaning: The devota whose name starts with a 'Ma' and ends with a 'Da' and who re-estabishes the tradition of eating beef, According to the Vedas he is the man who is highly adorable.(Translated by Mr. Abul Hossain Vattacharya, who was also a returning Muslim, and was a Brahmin by Cast from the Hindu religious denomination)
From Atharva Vedas: Meshudghaey 1:
"Idangjana Upasruta Norashan Sastya-bishwateyShashting Sahasra Nabatingcha Kauram Aarush".
Translation: O Mankind! Listen attentively, "The Praised One" will rise from among the people; We have discovered him among the sixty thousand enemiees.
Also, from the Atharva-Vedic Upanishad 9:
"Aushwa illaley Mitravaruna-Raja Tashmat-Tani DivyaniPunastang Dudhya Habaiyami Milang Kabar IllallangAlla-rahsul Mahamad Rakang BaraswaAlla Allam Illallotey Illalla".
Approximate Meaning: At an appropriate time, a Great man named MAHAMMAD will appear, whose abode will be in the desert (Arabia). He will be accompanied by his companions.
"Alla Mahamadkang Baraswa ... ... ... ... ... ... ..."
Translation: Accept Muhammad, the Prophet of Allah as an example to be followed.Again in Uttarayan Vedas:
" La Ilha Harti PapamIlla Ilaha Param PadamJanma Baikuntha Par Aup-inutiJanpi Namo Muhammadam "
Approximate Meaning:There is no shelter but "La Ilaha ... ... ... ..." to get rid of sin. The shelter of Ilah (Allah) is the actual shelter. If one is born on earth, there is no alternative to getting salvation from sin but to take shelter in Ilah (Allah). And for this, it is essential to follow the path shown by Muhammad.Now, the translation of some verses from Chapter 12 of the Kalki-Purana are cited below.
" 'Jagatguru' will be born of 'Bishnuvagat' in the woumb of 'Sumati'.He will be born '2 hours after sunrise' on Monday, the 12th of 'Baishakh'. His father will die before his birth and his mother some time later after his birth. 'Jagatguru' will marry the princess of the 'Salmal' island. His uncle and three brothers will be present in his marriage ceremony. 'Pars-Ram' will teach him in a cave. When he will come to 'Sambala' from 'Salmal' island, to preach his teachings, his relatives will oppose him. He will be bound to migrate to the 'Northern Hills' to avoid the on-going torture and persecution. But after some time, he will return to 'Sambala' with 'sword in hand' and will 'conquer the whole land'. 'Jagatguru' will visit earth and the seven heavens riding on a 'horse' ".Kalki-Purana is one of the principal sacred books of the Hindu Religion. In terms of seeking blessings, its place is after the Kuntap Sukt.The above verses of the Kalki-Purana clearly reflects the rise of Prophet Muhammad and some important incidents of his life. It will be clearer once the true meanings of the highlited words are unveiled.Jagatguru: 'Jagatguru' means teacher of the world. The world prophet Hajrat Muhammad (peace be upon him) is the saviour of the humanity irrespective of nation, country or creed. The verse "I have sent you as the blessings of the World" of the holy Qur'an signifies the same meaning as 'Jagatguru'.Bishnuvagat: In the language of Puranas, 'Bishnu' means the 'Creator' and 'Vagat' means the 'Servant'. Therefore, Bishnuvagat means the Servant of the Creator, and the arabic of this is "Abdullah". It is well known that the name of the World Prophet's father is "Abdullah".Sumati: 'Su' means 'Peace' or 'Self-Satisfaction', the arabic of which is 'Aman'. 'Mati' means 'Soul' or 'Heart'. Therefore, the meaning of 'Sumati' stands 'Satisfied Heart', and the arabic of which is "Amina". Prophet Muhammad's (peace be upon him) mother's name is Amina.12th Baishakh, Monday: According to the Bikrami Calender of India, the month Baishakh is known as the month of Spring. The arabic of 'Spring' is 'Rabi'. We know that Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was born on Monday, the 12th of Rabi-ul-Awual, the third month of the arabic calender.2 Hours after Sunrise: If it is 2 hours after sunrise in India, the corresponding time in Arabia would be 2 hours and 40 minutes earlier (The lattitude of Arbia is 80 Degrees West and that of indi is 40 Degrees west: Therefore the time difference would be (80-40)x4=160 minutes). It is known that Muhammd (peace be upon him) was born at the early dawn, well before the sunrise in Mecca of Arabia ('Hijaj' was the then name of Arabia).Salmal Island: In the Puranas of the Hindus the world has been divided into six parts. For example,1. Jambu Island- India, Tibbet, Burma (i.e. Mayanmar) etc.2. Shak Island- Europe3. Karuncha Island- Beluchistan and Afganistan4. Kaash Island- Africa5. Shakli Island- Russia and China6. Salmal Island- Arab and Asia Minor.Pars-Ram: 'Ram' means Creator and 'Pars' means Axe, and sometimes it also means 'the Great'. Angel Gabriel is the highly dignified Angel of Allah (One True God), who used to deliver Allah's words or messages to the Prophets. The Message angel Gabriel brought to prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) from Allah was as sharp as an axe, which eliminated all the injustice and falsehood on earth. 'Pars-ram' thus refers to angel Gabriel, who is the axe-bearer of Allah.Marriage: The first marriage of prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) was with Khadija, the daughter of the most famous and richest man in Arabia.Muhammad's uncle Abu Talib, and his three brothers Ali, Aakil and Jafar were present in his marriage ceremony.Cave: Here the 'Cave' refers to the Cave of Mount 'Hera', where angle Gabriel appeared before Muhammd (peace be upon him) for the first time, and where Gabriel asked him to read- 'Ekra Bismi Rabbik-Allazi...' --Read in the name of your lord, Allah. This is the cave of Mount 'Hera'.[Insert the image of Mount Hera here]Sambala: The true meaning of this is not known. However, considering the events of Muhammad's (peace be upon him) life, it appears that the word Sambala refers to the city of Mecca.The Northern Hills: It refers to the city of Medina (the early name was 'Yathrib'). The city of Medina is about 225 miles to the north of the city of Mecca. After being tortured by the tribe of Quraish, Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) temporarily migrated to Medina to avoid further torture and persecution.Sword in Hand: Prophet Muhammd (peace be upon him) and his followers gathered strength in Medina and they came with sword in hand to conquer Mecca. Here it referes to conquering the city of Mecca.Conquer the whole land: After conquering the city of Mecca, the whole of Arbia was conquered by Prophet Muhammad and his later followers.Horse: It refers to 'Burak', the carrier who took Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) to the miraculouus night journey from Mecca to Jerusalem and then to the seven heavens, and finally to the Creator of the Universe, 'Allah'. And then returned again to earth within a very short time. (The journey appears to be in a different time dimension and has not yet been explained properly with the present scientific knowledge). 'Burak' has a human like face and the rest resembles to a horse.
Now at this place my comment is that there are many peoples now who say that these books the Allo upnishad and Bhawishya Puran etc are not our books, even some people say that they are written by some muslims in the past, may be in the time of Akbar the Great Moghul or they are inserted in the said books by the Dara Shikoh the Crown price of Shah Jahan. My answer is that if any Muslims is writing or inserting in your books, then he will not stop by inserting Arabic words but he might have written complate islamic ideology, another comment from my side is this, that if you are denying your Sacred books then it is very sad and unfortunate for the poor books, which were along with you in your said history of fifty thousand years, and now you are abandoning them, very sad, your example is like that person who became very modern and wealthy, and his father remained in the village, when his father visits the son and finds him in a hi-fi party and wants to meet his son, then the son deny to recognise him.
There was also a tradition among the high class Pandits and Brahmins, that they had a secret knowledge of Allah and Mohammad PBUH, the tradition was as, if some one from these high class Elite Pandits or Brahmin was near his Death, he then calls his Sons and tells in their ears that there is only one God, my sons you only worship him, and all these religious myths are our means to obtain food and mony from the low class common peoples, the dying brahmin tells his sons that this is secret knowledge, and it is not told in public, therefore it is known to our forefathers as Ankahee, then the dying Pandits also tells their sons to worship Only One God, and which is allah, and His messenger Mohammad.
some times if a Pandit or Brahmin is near his death and he did not tells his sons the secret words of Ankahi, then some old friends of him reminds him by telling in his ears that allah is one and mohammad is true, and the exact words are as follows,
Lailaha Harti Papam
Illa ilaha Param Padam
janma Vaikunthha aup inuti
Janpe name mohammadam
this secret ankahee is leaked by a brahmin who Embraced Islam in the time of Moghul Emperor Akbar, Ref. Book "Agar Ab bhi najageto" page no.182.
all the Elite higher class pandits and brahmin Elders know this Ankahi, there fore there is many films and stories where some secret is in the story, are named Ankahee.
They also teach their confidencial brahmin students, as follows, that " there is only one God, but you do not disclose to the common public, but you yourself worship only one God, and mohammad was really a avtar, or a righteous muni or rishi, and let the common public involved in the bizzare mythology.".
AppealO Human Beings! O People!! apply your knowledge and conscience now. Please try to find out the truth and if convinced return to Islam, for it is the Only Way of Life presecribed by Allah and therefore, the only religion acceptable to Allah in the Hereafter.
