Hindu Scriptures Forecast the Arrival of Muhammad the Apostle of God.

Updated on October 14, 2015


This by itself is a complex topic and one that has no easy answers. The end result is also likely to be something that cannot be anticipated. The Hindus from time immemorial have 4 sacred books. These are the Vedas, Upanishads, Puranas and the Brahmanas. The books are all written in Sanskrit and out of the knowledge of the average Hindu, because Sanskrit as a language died in India. The knowledge in most of these books remained obscure and known only to a few Pundits who had mastered the Sanskrit language. It was only in the 18th century when these books were translated into English and then into Hindi (devnagri script) that the world at large became aware of them. Credit for this must go to an Englishman named Sir William Jones, who was an employee of the East India Company and studied and mastered Sanskrit language.

The Puranas

The Puranas are the most widely read of the Hindu scriptures. The author of the Puranas is the great Maharishi Vyasa and he compiled these into 18 volumes. These books are a treasure house of that period and give forecasts of the future. They also delineate the history of the Aryan race and contain tales of Hindu deities and gods. The Puranas are thought to have originated around the same time as the Vedas or as some scholars have pointed out even earlier. The Puranas have a high place in Hindu religion and are much respected. Their sanctity is inviolable.

The Evidence of Dr Pran Nath

In 1935, Dr. Pran Nath an eminent historian wrote an article in the Times of India In this article he brought out a strange fact. He showed that the Rig Veda contains events of the Babylonian and Egyptian kings and their wars. Further, he stated that one-fifth of the Rig Veda is derived from the Babylonian Scriptures. This fact has not been countered. But a reading of the Vedas brings out names that are identical in the old Hebrew tomes. So obviously there was a deep connection between the ancient Hindu scriptures and the Hebrew books.

The Puranas have a special niche of their own and one of the volumes called the Bhavishya Purana foretells events to come many centuries later. This is a scholastic work. In this book there is a clear reference to the arrival of Mohammad. This is a disconcerting thought, but cannot be glossed away.

The Prophesies of the Puranas

After the information came to light about the reference to Mohammad in the Puranas some Pundits began to reject the Puranas . A case was made that the present Puranas are not the same collection that Vedas refer to and the real books were lost.

This contention is not correct. It is impossible that all the Puranas were lost and the Vedas remained, hence the theory that the original Puranas are non- existent must be taken with a pinch of salt. In any case an entire set of 18 volumes cannot be forged.

Prophesies about Mohammed

All major books of the Hindus prophesy about Prophet Mohammad. In addition to many of his qualities, his life events, Abraham, Ka'bah, Bakkah (Makkah) and Arabia, the prophecies mention his name as Mahamad, Mamah, and Ahmad. The name Mahamad appears in the Puranas, Mamah in Kuntap Sukt (in Atharva Veda) and Ahmad in Sama Veda.

Muhammad and the profesies

The compiler of the Puranas, Maharishi Vyasa, was a very learned man who commands a great respect in Hindu folklore. He is highly honored as a great rishi . He also wrote the Gita and the Mahabharata. Among the eighteen volumes of the Puranas is one by the title ‘Bhavishya Puran,’ literally meaning future events. These prophecies form the corner stone of this volume and are greatly respected. The prophecy containing Prophet Muhammad by name is found in Prati Sarg Parv III: 3, 3, Verse 5.

What does the Bhavishya Purana say? It says that an Malechha a spiritual leader will appear and his name will be Mahamad. It also states he will speak a foreign language.

The prophesy further states in verses 5-27 of the Prati Sarg Parv III: 3, 3 that the man will have an angelic face and will be a dweller of Arabia. His followers will be circumcised and he will eat all meats except swine. His followers will not seek purification from the holy shrubs, but will be purified through warfare. They will fight the irreligious nations and will be known as Musalmans (Muslims). The book also states that this man will fight all evil and will be purified in the Ganges.

. The actual translation can be easily accessed, but these forecasts in the Puranas are much food for thought.

More Prophecies in Hindu Scriptures

The Vedas also contain many prophecies about Prophet Muhammad.

Several prophecies are found in Atharva Veda and finally, a prophecy is found in Sama Veda III: 10, Mantra 1.

Final thought

The mention of Muhammad is undeniable in the Hindu scriptures, but a greater question that must be answered is that what will be the reaction of the diehard Muslims in case the Hindus accept Muhammad as the 10th Avatar or Kalki? Will they accept them as equals or treat them the way they treat the Ahmeddiyyas, Shias, and other sects who are routinely butchered as heretics?
