INTRODUCTION TO HINDUISM
I TERMINOLOGY.
The most popular among the Aryan religions is Hinduism. ‘Hindu’ is
actually a Persian word that stands for the inhabitants of the region beyond
the Indus Valley. However, in common parlance, Hinduism is a blanket
term for an assortment of religious beliefs, most of which are based on the
Vedas, the Upanishads and the Bhagavad Gita.
II INTRODUCTION TO HINDU SCRIPTURES.
There are several sacred scriptures of the Hindus. Among these are the
Vedas, Upanishads and the Puranas.

VEDAS:

The word Veda is derived from vid which means to know, knowledge par
excellence or sacred wisdom. There are four principal divisions of the
Vedas (although according to their number, they amount to 1131 out of
which about a dozen are available). According to Maha Bhashya of
Patanjali, there are 21 branches of Rigveda, 9 types of Atharvaveda, 101
branches of Yajurveda and 1000 of Samveda).

The Rigveda, the Yajurveda and the Samveda are considered to be more
ancient books and are known as Trai Viddya or the ‘Triple Sciences’. The
Rigveda is the oldest and has been compiled in three long and different
periods of time. The 4th Veda is the Atharvaveda, which is of a later date.

There is no unanimous opinion regarding the date of compilation or
revelation of the four Vedas. According to Swami Dayanand, founder of the
Arya Samaj, the Vedas were revealed 1310 million years ago. According to
other scholars, they are not more than 4000 years old.

Similarly, there are differing opinions regarding the places where these
books were compiled and the Rishis to whom these Scriptures were given.
Inspite of these differences, the Vedas are considered to be the most

authentic of the Hindu Scriptures and the real foundations of the Hindu
Dharma.

UPANISHADS:

The word ‘Upanishad’ is derived from Upa meaning near, Ni which
means down and Shad means to sit. Therefore ‘Upanishad’ means sitting
down near. Groups of pupils sit near the teacher to learn from him the
secret doctrines.
According to Samkara, ‘Upanishad’ is derived from the root word Sad which
means ‘to loosen’, ‘to reach’ or ‘to destroy’, with Upa and ni as prefix;
therefore ‘Upanishad’ means Brahma-Knowledge by which ignorance is
loosened or destroyed.

The number of Upanishads exceeds 200 though the Indian tradition puts
it at 108. There are 10 principal Upanishads. However, some consider them
to be more than 10, while others 18.

The Vedanta meant originally the Upanishads, though the word is now
used for the system of philosophy based on the Upanishad. Literally,
Vedanta means the end of the Veda, Vedasua-antah, and the conclusion as
well as the goal of Vedas. The Upanishads are the concluding portion of the
Vedas and chronologically they come at the end of the Vedic period.

Some Pundits consider the Upanishads to be more superior to the
Vedas.

PURANAS:
Next in order of authenticity are the Puranas which are the most widely
read scriptures. It is believed that the Puranas contain the history of the
creation of the universe, history of the early Aryan tribes, life stories of the
divines and deities of the Hindus. It is also believed that the Puranas are
revealed books like the Vedas, which were revealed simultaneously with
the Vedas or sometime close to it.
Maharishi Vyasa has divided the Puranas into 18 voluminous parts. He also
arranged the Vedas under various heads.
Chief among the Puranas is a book known as Bhavishya Purana. It is called
so because it is believed to give an account of future events. The Hindus
consider it to be the word of God. Maharishi yasa is considered to be just
the compiler of the book.

ITIHAAS:
The two epics of Hinduism are the Ramayana and the Mahabharata.
A. Ramayana:
According to Ramanuja, the great scholar of Ramayana, there are more than
300 different types of Ramayana: Tulsidas Ramayana, Kumbha Ramayana.
Though the outline of Ramayana is same, the details and contents differ.
Valmiki’s Ramayana:
Unlike the Mahabharata, the Ramayana appears to be the work of one
person – the sage Valmiki, who probably composed it in the 3rd century BC.
Its best-known recension (by Tulsi Das, 1532-1623) consists of 24,000
rhymed couplets of 16-syllable lines organised into 7 books. The poem
incorporates many ancient legends and draws on the sacred books of the
Vedas. It describes the efforts of Kosala’s heir, Rama, to regain his throne
and rescue his wife, Sita, from the demon King of Lanka.
Valmiki’s Ramayana is a Hindu epic tradition whose earliest literary
version is a Sanskrit poem attributed to the sage Valmiki. Its principal
characters are said to present ideal models of personal, familial, and social
behavior and hence are considered to exemplify Dharma, the principle of
moral order.
B. Mahabharata:

The nucleus of the Mahabharata is the war of eighteen days fought between
the Kauravas, the hundred sons of Dhritarashtra and Pandavas, the five
sons of Pandu. The epic entails all the circumstances leading upto the war.
Involved in this Kurukshetra battle were almost all the kings of India
joining either of the two parties. The result of this war was the total
annihilation of Kauravas and their party. Yudhishthira, the head of the
Pandavas, became the sovereign monarch of Hastinapura. His victory is
supposed to symbolise the victory of good over evil. But with the progress
of years, new matters and episodes relating to the various aspects of
human life, social, economic, political, moral and religious as also fragments
of other heroic legends came to be added to the aforesaid nucleus and this
phenomenon continued for centuries until it acquired the present shape.
The Mahabharata represents a whole literature rather than one single and
unified work, and contains many multifarious things.
C. Bhagavad Gita:
Bhagavad Gita is a part of Mahabharata. It is the advice given by Krishna to
Arjun on the battlefield of Kurukshetra. It contains the essence of the Vedas
and is the most popular of all the Hindu Scriptures. It contains 18 chapters.
The Bhagavad Gita is one of the most widely read and revered of the works
sacred to the Hindus. It is their chief devotional book, and has been for
centuries the principal source of religious inspiration for many thousands
of Hindus.
The Gita is a dramatic poem, which forms a small part of the larger epic, the
Mahabharata. It is included in the sixth book (Bhismaparvan) of the
Mahabaharata and documents one tiny event in a huge epic tale.
The Bhagavad Gita tells a story of a moral crisis faced by Arjuna, which is
solved through the interaction between Arjuna, a Pandava warrior
hesitating before battle, and Krishna, his charioteer and teacher. The
Bhagavad Gita relates a brief incident in the main story of a rivalry and
eventually a war between two branches of a royal family. In that brief
incident – a pause on the battlefield just as the battle is about to begin –

Krishna, one chief on one side (also believed to be the Lord incarnate), is
presented as responding to the doubts of Arjuna. The poem is the dialogue
through which Arjuna’s doubts were resolved by Krishna’s teachings.

CONCEPT OF GOD IN HINDUISM

Common Concept of God in Hinduism:
Hinduism is commonly perceived as a polytheistic religion. Indeed, most
Hindus would attest to this, by professing belief in multiple Gods. While
some Hindus believe in the existence of three gods, some believe in
thousands of gods, and some others in thirty three crore i.e. 330 million
Gods. However, learned Hindus, who are well versed in their scriptures,
insist that a Hindu should believe in and worship only one God.
The major difference between the Hindu and the Muslim perception of God
is the common Hindus’ belief in the philosophy of Pantheism. Pantheism
considers everything, living and non-living, to be Divine and Sacred. The
common Hindu, therefore, considers everything as God. He considers the
trees as God, the sun as God, the moon as God, the monkey as God, the
snake as God and even human beings as manifestations of God!
Islam, on the contrary, exhorts man to consider himself and his
surroundings as examples of Divine Creation rather than as divinity itself.
Muslims therefore believe that everything is God’s i.e. the word ‘God’ with
an apostrophe ‘s’. In other words the Muslims believe that everything
belongs to God.
The trees belong to God, the sun belongs to God, the moon belongs to God,
the monkey belongs to God, the snake belongs to God, the human beings
belong to God and everything in this universe belongs to God.
Thus the major difference between the Hindu and the Muslim beliefs is the
difference of the apostrophe ‘s’. The Hindu says everything is God. The
Muslim says everything is God’s.

Concept of God according to Hindu Scriptures:
We can gain a better understanding of the concept of God in Hinduism by
analysing Hindu scriptures.

BHAGAVAD GITA:
The most popular amongst all the Hindu scriptures is the Bhagavad Gita.
Consider the following verse from the Gita:
“Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires surrender
unto demigods and follow the particular rules and regulations of worship
according to their own natures.”
[Bhagavad Gita 7:20]
The Gita states that people who are materialistic worship demigods i.e.
‘gods’ besides the True God.
UPANISHADS:
The Upanishads are considered sacred scriptures by the Hindus.
The following verses from the Upanishads refer to the Concept of God:

“Ekam evadvitiyam”
“He is One only without a second.”
[Chandogya Upanishad 6:2:1]1

“Na casya kascij janita na cadhipah.”
“Of Him there are neither parents nor lord.”
[Svetasvatara Upanishad 6:9]2

“Na tasya pratima asti”
“There is no likeness of Him.”
[Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:19]3

The following verses from the Upanishad allude to the inability of man
to imagine God in a particular form:

“Na samdrse tisthati rupam asya, na caksusa pasyati kas canainam.”
“His form is not to be seen; no one sees Him with the eye.”
[Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:20]4

4 [The Principal Upanishad by S. Radhakrishnan page 737]
[Sacred Books of the East, volume 15, ‘The Upanishads part II’ page no 253]
THE VEDAS
Vedas are considered the most sacred of all the Hindu scriptures. There are
four principal Vedas: Rigveda, Yajurveda, Samveda and Atharvaveda.

Yajurveda
The following verses from the Yajurveda echo a similar concept of God:

“na tasya pratima asti”
“There is no image of Him.”
[Yajurveda 32:3]5

“shudhama poapvidham”
“He is bodyless and pure.”
[Yajurveda 40:8]6

“Andhatama pravishanti ye asambhuti mupaste”
“They enter darkness, those who worship the natural elements” (Air,
Water, Fire, etc.). “They sink
deeper in darkness, those who worship sambhuti.”

[Yajurveda 40:9]7

Sambhuti means created things, for example table, chair, idol, etc.
The Yajurveda contains the following prayer:
“Lead us to the good path and remove the sin that makes us stray and
wander.”
[Yajurveda 40:16]8
5[Yajurveda by Devi Chand M.A. page 377]
6[Yajurveda Samhita by Ralph T. H. Giffith page 538]
7[Yajurveda Samhita by Ralph T. H. Giffith page 538]
8[Yajurveda Samhita by Ralph T. H. Griffith page 541]

Atharvaveda
The Atharvaveda praises God in Book 20, hymn 58 and verse 3:

“Dev maha osi”
“God is verily great”
[Atharvaveda 20:58:3]9

Rigveda

The oldest of all the vedas is Rigveda. It is also the one considered most
sacred by the Hindus.
The Rigveda states in Book 1, hymn 164 and verse 46: “Sages (learned
Priests) call one God by many
names.”
[Rigveda 1:164:46]

The Rigveda gives several different attributes to Almighty God. Many of
these are mentioned in
Rigveda Book 2 hymn 1.
Among the various attributes of God, one of the beautiful attributes
mentioned in the Rigveda Book II hymn 1 verse 3, is Brahma. Brahma
means ‘The Creator’. Translated into Arabic it means Khaaliq. Muslims can
have no objection if Almighty God is referred to as Khaaliq or ‘Creator’ or
Brahma. However if it is said that Brahma is Almighty God who has four
heads with each head having a crown, Muslims take strong exception to it.
Describing Almighty God in anthropomorphic terms also goes against the
following verse of Yajurveda:
“Na tasya Pratima asti”
“There is no image of Him.”
[Yajurveda 32:3]
Another beautiful attribute of God mentioned in the Rigveda Book II hymn
1 verse 3 is Vishnu. Vishnu means ‘The Sustainer’. Translated into Arabic it
means Rabb. Again, Muslims can have no objection if Almighty God is
referred to as Rabb or ‘Sustainer’ or Vishnu. But the popular image of
9[Atharveda Samhita vol 2 William Dwight Whitney page 910]
Vishnu among Hindus, is that of a God who has four arms, with one of the
right arms holding the Chakra, i.e. a discus and one of the left arms holding
a ‘conch shell’, or riding a bird or reclining on a snake couch. Muslims can
never accept any image of God. As mentioned earlier this also goes against
Svetasvatara Upanishad Chapter 4 verse 19.
“Na tasya pratima asti”
“There is no likeness of Him”
The following verse from the Rigveda Book 8, hymn 1, verse 1 refer to the
Unity and Glory of the Supreme Being:

“Ma cid anyad vi sansata sakhayo ma rishanyata”
“O friends, do not worship anybody but Him, the Divine One. Praise Him
alone.”
[Rigveda 8:1:1]10
www.australianislamiclibrary.org Page 14

“Devasya samituk parishtutih”
“Verily, great is the glory of the Divine Creator.”
[Rigveda 5:1:81]11
Brahma Sutra of Hinduism:
The Brahma Sutra of Hinduism is:
“Ekam Brahm, dvitiya naste neh na naste kinchan”
“There is only one God, not the second; not at all, not at all, not in the least
bit.”
Thus only a dispassionate study of the Hindu scriptures can help one
understand the concept of God in Hinduism.

Sarasvati and Satyakam Vidyalankar]
11[Rigveda Samhita vol. 6, pages 1802 and 1803 by Swami Satya Prakash
Saraswati and Satyakam Vidyalankar]
as from the sun.” The Prophecy confirms:

The name of the Prophet as Ahmed since Ahmed is an Arabic name. Many
translators misunderstood it to be ‘Ahm at hi’ and translated the mantra as
“I alone have acquired the real wisdom of my father”.

Prophet was given eternal law, i.e. the Shariah.

The Rishi was enlightened by the Shariah of Prophet Muhammad. The
Qur’an says in Surah Saba Chapter 34 verse 28 (34:28):

“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.”

Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Hindu scripture
I. Muhammad (pbuh) prophesised in Bhavishya Purana
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 Prophecy clearly states:
The name of the Prophet as Mohammad.
He will belong to Arabia. The Sanskrit word Marusthal means a sandy track
of land or a desert.
Special mention is made of the companions of the Prophet, i.e. the Sahabas.
No other Prophet had as many companions as Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
He is referred as the pride of mankind (Parbatis nath). The Glorious Qur’an
reconfirms this”And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character”
[Al-Qur’an 68:4]|
“Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah, a beautiful pattern (of conduct)”.
[Al-Qur’an 33:21]
He will kill the devil, i.e. abolish idol worship and all sorts of vices.
The Prophet will be given protection against his enemy.
Some people may argue that ‘Raja’ Bhoj mentioned in the prophecy lived in
the 11th century C.E. 500 years after the advent of Prophet Muhammad
(pbuh) and was the descendant in the 10th generation of Raja Shalivahan.

These people fail to realise that there was not only one Raja of the name
Bhoj. The Egyptian Monarchs were called as Pharaoh and the Roman Kings
were known as Caesar, similarly the Indian Rajas were given the title of
Bhoj. There were several Raja Bhoj who came before the one in 11th
Century C.E.
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.
According to Bhavishya Purana in the Pratisarag Parv III Khand 3 Adhay 3
Shloka 10 to 27 Maharishi Vyas has prophesised:
“The Malecha 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 Muhammad (pbuh), 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 Pishacha said to Raja Bhoj, “O Raja! Your Arya Dharma has been made to
prevail over all religions, but according to the commandments of Ishwar
Parmatma, 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 the Aadhaan (the Muslim 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 nations.”
The Prophecy states that:
The evil doers have corrupted the Arab land.

Arya Dharma is not found in that land.
The Indian Raja need not go the Arab land since his purification will take
place in India after the musalmaan will arrive in India.
The coming Prophet will attest the truth of the Aryan faith, i.e. Monotheism
and will reform the misguided people.
The Prophet’s followers will be circumcised. They will be without a tail on
the head and bear a beard and will create a great revolution.
They will announce the Aadhaan, i.e. ‘the Muslim call for prayer’.
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 to you for food are dead meat, blood, flesh of swine, and that on
which hath been invoked the name of other than Allah”.
They will not purify with grass like the Hindus but by means of sword they
will fight their irreligious people.
They will be called musalmaan.
They will be a meat-eating nation.
The eating of herbivorous animals is confirmed by the Qur’an in Surah
Maidah, chapter 5 verse 1 and in Surah Muminun chapter 23 verse 21
According to Bhavishya Purana, Parv – III Khand 1 Adhay 3 Shloka 21-23:
“Corruption and persecution are found in seven sacred cities of Kashi, etc.
India is inhabited by Rakshas, Shabor, Bhil and other foolish people. In the
land of Malechhas, the followers of the Malechha 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 islands. Having known these facts, O Muni, glorify the name of thy
lord”.
The Qur’an confirms this in Surah Taubah chapter 9 verse 33 and in Surah

Al Saff chapter 61 verse 9:
“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)”.
A similar message is given in Surah Fatah chapter 48 verses 28 ending with,
“and enough is Allah as a witness”.
II. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) Prophesised in Atharvaveda
In the 20th book of Atharvaveda Hymn 127 Some Suktas (chapters) are
known as Kuntap Sukta. Kuntap means the consumer of misery and
troubles. Thus meaning the message of peace and safety and if translated in
Arabic means Islam.
Kuntap also means hidden glands in the abdomen. These mantras are
called so probably because their true meaning was hidden and was to be
revealed in future. Its hidden meaning is also connected with the navel or
the middle point of this earth. Makkah is called the Ummul Qur’a the
mother of the towns or the naval of the earth. In many revealed books it
was the first house of Divine worship where God Almighty gave spiritual
nourishment to the world. The Qur’an says in Surah Ali-Imran chapter 3,
verse 96:
“The first house (of worship) appointed for men was that at Bakkah
(Makkah) full of blessings and of guidance and for all kinds of beings”. Thus
Kuntap stands for Makkah or Bakkah.
Several people have translated these Kuntap Suktas like M. Bloomfield,
Prof. Ralph Griffith, Pandit Rajaram, Pandit Khem Karan, etc.
The main points mentioned in the Kuntap Suktas i.e. in Atharvaveda book
20 Hymn 127 verses 1-13 are:
Mantra 1

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.
Mantra 2
He is a camel-riding Rishi, whose chariot touches the heaven.
Mantra 3
He is Mamah Rishi who is given a hundred gold coins, ten chaplets
(necklaces), three hundred good steeds and ten thousand cows.
Mantra 4
Vachyesv rebh. ‘Oh! ye who glorifies’.
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, since it is forbidden for a Brahman to ride a
camel according to the Sacred Books of the East, volume 25, Laws of Manu
pg. 472. According to Manu Smirti chapter 11 verse 202, “A Brahman is
prohibited from riding a camel or an ass and to bathe naked. He should
purify himself by suppressing his breath”.
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’, but this word according to Sanskrit
grammar can also be used in the bad sense. It is incorrect to apply grammar
to an Arabic word. Actually shas the same meaning and somewhat similar
pronunciation as the word Muhammad (pbuh).
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). These were foretold in this world of their salvation in the hereafter
i.e. they were given the good news of entering paradise by the Prophet’s
own lips and after naming each one he said “in Paradise”. They were Abu
Bakr, Umar, Uthman, Ali, Talha, Zubair, Abdur Rahman Ibn Auf, Saad bin
Abi Waqqas, Saad bin Zaid and Abu Ubaidah (May Allah be well-pleased
with all of them).
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 which was a unique victory
in the history of mankind in which there was no blood shed. The 10,000
companions were pious and compassionate like cows and were at the same
time strong and fierce and are described in the Holy Quran in Surah Fatah:
“Muhammad is the Messenger of Allah; and those who are with him are
strong against unbelievers, (but) compassionate amongst each other.”
[Al-Qur’an 48:29]
This mantra calls the Prophet as Rebh which means one who praises, which
when translated into Arabic is Ahmed, which is another name for the Holy
Prophet (pbuh).
Battle of the Allies described in the Vedas.
It is mentioned in Atharvaveda Book XX Hymn 21 verse 6, “Lord of the
truthful! These liberators drink these feats of bravery and the inspiring
songs gladdened thee in the field of battle. When thou renders vanquished
without fight the ten thousand opponents of the praying one, the adoring
one.”
This Prophecy of the Veda describes the well-known battle of Ahzab or the
battle of the Allies during the time of Prophet Muhammed. The Prophet was
victorious without an actual conflict which is mentioned in the Qur’an in
Surah Ahzab:
“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 ‘praying one’ which when
translated into Arabic means ‘Ahmed’, the second name of Prophet
Muhammed (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.
The enemies’ defeat in the conquest of Makkah is mentioned in
Atharvaveda book 20 Hymn 21 verse no 9:
“You have O Indra, overthrown 20 kings and 60,099 men with an
outstripping Chariot wheel who came to fight the praised one or far famed
(Muhammad) orphan.”
The population of Makkah at the time of Prophet’s advent was nearly
60,000
There were several clans in Makkah each having its own chief. Totally there
were about 20 chiefs to rule the population of Makkah.
An Abandhu meaning a helpless man who was far-famed and ‘praised one’.
Muhammad (pbuh) overcame his enemies with the help of God.
III. Muhammad (pbuh) prophesised in the Rigveda
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).
IV. Muhummad (pbuh) is also prophesised in the Samveda
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.” The Prophecy confirms:
The name of the Prophet as Ahmed since Ahmed is an Arabic name. Many
translators misunderstood it to be Ahm at hi and translated the mantra as
“I alone have acquired the real wisdom of my father”.
Prophet was given eternal law, i.e. the Shariah.
The Rishi was enlightened by the Shariah of Prophet Muhammad. The
Qur’an says in Surah Saba chapter 34 verse 28
“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]
