Prophet Mohammed (peace Be Upon Him) In Hindu Scriptures

Recommended Posts

Translation Quran 3:81

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 ) 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)."




1. Kuntap Sukt

In the 20th book of Atharva Veda Hymn-127, some Suktas (chapters) are known as ‘kuntap sukt’.

Several people like M. Bloom Field, Prof Ralph Griffith, Pandit Rajaram, Pandit Khem Karan and others have translated these kuntap suktas. The main points mentioned in the kuntap suktas in Atharvaved book XX Hymn 127 verses 1-13 are:


Mantra 1

He is narashansah or the praised one (Mohammad).

He is Kaurama the prince of peace or the emigrant, who is safe even amongst a host of 60,090 enemies.


Mantra 2.

He is a camel-riding Rishi, whose chariot touches the heaven.


Mantra 3.

He is Mamah Rishi.


(i) The Sanskrit word ‘Narashansah’ means ‘the praised one’ which is the literal translation of the Arabic word Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him).


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 Madeenah and was thus an emigrant.


(ii) 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 since it is forbidden for a Brahman to ride a camel. According to Manu Smriti chapter 11 verse 202 sacred books of the east, volume 25, Laws of Manu pg. 472 “A Brahman is prohibited from riding a camel or donkey and to bathe naked. He should purify himself by suppressing his breath”.


(iii) This mantra gave the Rishi name as Mamah. No Rishi in India or any other prophet had this name. ‘Mamah’ is derived from ‘Mah’ which means to esteem highly, or to revere, and to exalt. Some Sanskrit books give the prophet’s name as ‘Mahamad’ but this word according to Sanskrit grammer can also be used in the bad sense. It is incorrect to apply grammar to an Arabic word. Actually Mamah has the same meaning and somewhat similar pronunciation as the word Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him).



2. 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.”


(i) This Prophecy of the Veda describes the well-known battle of Ahzab or the battle of the Allies during the time of Prophet Muhammad (Peace and blessings of God be upon him). 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)


(ii) The Sanskrit word ‘karo’ in the Mantra means the ‘Praising one’ which when translated into Arabic means Ahmed, the second name of Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him).


(iii) The 10,000 opponents mentioned in the mantra were the enemies of the prophet when the Muslims were only 3000 in number.


(iv) The last words of the Mantra ‘aprati ni bashayah’ means the defeat was given to the enemies without an actual fight.






3. The enemies defeat in the conquest of Makkah prophesized in Atharva Veda


It is mentioned in Atharva Veda book 20 Hymn 21 verse no. 9.

“You have O Indira overthrown 20 kings and 60,099 men with an outstripping chariot wheel who came to fight the praised one or far famed Orphan”


(i) The population of Makkah at the time of Prophet’s advent was nearly 60,000.

(ii) There were several clans in Makkah each having its own chief. Totally there were about 20 chiefs to rule the population of Makkah.

(iii) An ‘Abandhu’ meaning a ‘helpless man’ who was far famed and ‘Praised one’ [Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) who became orphan at every young age and were far famed because of excellence of their character] overcame his enemies with the help of God.



4. Kalki icon


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 icon i.e. the final icon is given in the verses Kalki Purana chapter 2 verses 4, 5, 7, 11 & 15.




(i). Mother’s name Sumati translates to Aaminah in arabic

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


(ii). Father’s name Vishnuyash translates to Abdullah in arabic

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’.


(iii). Born in Sambhala translates to Makkah in arabic

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.


(iv). Born in house of Chief Priest.

He will be born in the house of chief of the village Sambhala. Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) was born in the house of the chief of the Kaaba.


(v). Born on the 12th day of Madhav ( Rabi-ul-Awwal in arabic ).

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 (peace and blessings of God be upon him) was born on the 12th day of the bright half of the month of Rabi-ul-Awwal.


(vi). He will be the Antim or final icon

He has been described as the ‘Antim’ i.e. ‘the last and final’ of all the icons. The Qur’an also mentions. This fact Quran also confirms that Prophet Mohammed will be last of the Messengers of God


(vii). Will receive knowledge on the mountain from the Lord and then go towards North and come back.

Kalki icon will go to the mountains and receive knowledge from Parsuram, then go towards the north and come back. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) 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.


(viii). He will have the most graceful personality.

Kalki icon will have unparalleled grace. Qur’an mentions in Surah Al-Qalam chapter 68 verse 4:

And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character.


(ix). Endowed with eight special qualities

Kalki icon 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 (peace and blessings of God be upon him) had all these eight special qualities.

a) Wisdom – He was very wise. It is no wonder that several people approached him for guidance, even before he claimed to be a prophet.


b ) Respectable lineage – He belonged to the noble tribe of Quraysh who were the caretakers of the sacred Kaaba.


c) Self-control – He was the best example of self-control. From history, we learn that his enemies on many occasions tried to instigate him. However, he was always patient and responded wisely.


d) Revealed knowledge – Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) received the last and final revelation of God, which is the Glorious Qur’an through Archangel Gabriel.


e) Valour – Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) possessed great physical strength and courage. He took active part in the battles against his enemies and most of such battles were fought in self-defence against aggression by the other party.


f) Measured speech – Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) spoke with emphasis and deliberation that people could not forget what he said. In his intercourse with others he would sit silent among his companions for long time but when he spoke his speech was eloquent and full of meaning and advise.


g) Utmost charity – Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) was very charitable and never disappointed anyone who asked for help even in situations when he himself was in financial difficulties. Many poor people lived only on his generosity.


h) Gratefulness – Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) was known for his gratefulness. He showed immense gratitude to the Ansaars i.e. the helpers from the city of Madeenah.


(x). Teacher of the World.


The Kalki icon will be the saviour of the world i.e. he will guide and teach the world. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) 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)


(xi). Shiva will present a steed to Kalki icon.

It is prophesied that Shiva will present an extraordinary steed to the Kalki icon. Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) received a steed from Almighty God, which was known as ‘Buraq’ and whose speed transcended.


(xii). He will ride a horse and carry a sword.

Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) 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.


(xiii). He will subdue the wicked

It is mentioned that Kalki icon will subdue the wicked. It was prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) who purified (transformed) bandits and miscreants and established them on the path of truth. Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) 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 (peace and blessings of God be upon him) brought them from darkness to light.


(xiv). He will overpower the Devil with four companions

It is prophesied that Kalki icon, with four of his companions, will disarm the devil. Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him), 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 as ‘the rightly guided Caliphs’.


(xv). He will be assisted by angels.

The Kalki icon will be assisted by angels in the battlefield. In the battle of Badr, Prophet Muhammad (peace and blessings of God be upon him) was assisted by angels who descended from the heavens. This is also mentioned in the Qur’an in:
