12. Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) Foretold in Hindu Scriptures

Holy Prophet (S.A.W.) Foretold in Hindu Scriptures

There is no doubt that God sent Prophets to people of India. There is no mention of any Indian Prophet or scripture in Holy Qur'an. But Bukhari records Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.) as saying he was enjoying breeze wafting from India laden with fragrance of Tawhid (unity of God). The four Vedas (scriptures) of Hindus and their epics are said to be 5000-10,000 years old. They contain a great deal of monotheistic ideas, and of course, prophecies on Hadrath Muhammad (S.A.W.).

Bhavishya Puran

This is a Sanskrit work of prophecies. The title means 'Book of the Future'. Since Hinduism is based in India it was, and still is, taken for granted that its sages will be born in India itself. Contrary to this belief the Book says that a great master will appear in a foreign country (mlechcha acharya) and live in a sandy region (marusthal). His name will be Mahaaamad. Within a short span of 18 couplets Mahaamad is mentioned five times.

There is an interesting information in Bhavishya Purana that Mahaamad would appear to Bhoj, ruler of Dhar, and say that he would establish the religion of meat eaters, by the command of Ishwar i.e. God.

There is a tradition that long afterwards, Bhoj got terrified on seeing the full moon split into two. Learned men consulted holy books and told him that it was one of the signs of the Universal Master to be born in a country to the West. Bhoj sent his minister to Prophet (S.A.W.) in Arabia, who named the king as Abdullah. The tomb of Abdullah is still there at Dhar...

 

 

Mahabharat

This is a Hindu epic describing the struggle and triumph of good against evil. It was written by sage Vyas who also authored Bhavishya Purana. Mahabharata says that in the last eon called Kali Yug (in which we now live) a great sage will appear with name Mahaamad. He would preach about unity of God. He will be driven away from his native place by his own folk. By him the world would get peace. (Islam means peace). Mahabharat further says that cloud will provide him shade. It is recorded in history that Buhaira, the Christian priest of Syria observed this sign with Muhammad (S.A.W.) in his boyhood and identified him as the last Prophet anticipated for millennia.

Kalki Puran

The signs and events of the final Avatar Kalki point out to final Prophet Muhammad (S.A.W.). They fit those of Muhammad (S.A.W.) neatly and perfectly. They are as follows;

Kalki will appear in the last on Kali Yug and will be the guide for the entire world.

He will be born on the 12th day of the month. Prophet (S.A.W.) as born on 12th Of Rabiyyul Awwal).

His parents will be: Vishnu Bhagat and Soomati meaning servant of God (the Cherisher) and peace. (Messenger's father's name was Abdullah, God's servant and mother was Amina refuge giver which includes the idea of 'peace'.)
 He will be with a beauty
par-excellence. His body will be fragrant.

He will get wisdom on a mountain. (Messenger (S.A.W.) was conferred Prophethood on Mt.Hira)

He will receive a horse from God, which will be faster than lightning. Riding it he will go around the earth and seven skies. (During Mi'raj Prophet (S.A.W.) got Buraq meaning lightning and toured the entire universe.)

Kalki will split the moon. Like Bhoj, Cheraman (Zamorin)

Perumal the ruler of Indian kingdom of Kerala, witnessed splitting of the moon performed by Prophet (S.A.W.). After gathering the facts he sailed to Arabia and became Muslim at Prophet's (S.A.W.) hand. His Tomb is near the city of Salala in Oman.
