    Could Mohommed be another Buddha ?Find Out !

    Mr./Mrs Moderetor if you think you know somthing that you can add to my knowledge plz dont hesitate to TALK to me before editing my post .Thank you .Islam encourages knowledge over ritual & hereticism.

    Assalam alaikum,

    ---

    Ananda asked, 'Who shall teach us when thou art gone?'

    Buddha replied, 'I am not the first Buddha that came upon the earth, nor
    shall I be the last. In time another Budda willarise in the world, a holy
    one, a supremely enlightened one, endowed with wisdom in conduct,
    auspicious, an incomparable leader of men, a master of angels and mortals.
    He will reveal to you the SAME eternal truths I have taught upon you. His
    disciples will number many thousands while mine number many hundreds'

    Ananda asked, 'And how will we come to know him?'

    Buddha answered, 'He will be known as MAITREYA'

    [Gospel of Buddha, Carusp 217]

    NB At the time of Prophet Muhammad's death there were over 110,000
    companions.

    ---

    Budda said: 'Our cycle is a happy one, three leaders have already lived...
    The Budda supreme am I, but after me, MAITRIYA comes. While still this happy
    cucle lasts, before its tale of years shall lapse. This Buddha, called
    METTEYA, shall be supreme chief of all Men'
    [Buddhism in translation, Warren, p 481]

    When Allah states in the Quran that to each nation He sent an Apostle [Surah
    Yunus (10): 47] this much is true. The question is, how do we recognise who
    is and who isnt an Apostle of God?

    Was Prophet Muhammad a 'buddha'?

    What is a Buddha in the wider sense, is the word synonymous with the term
    Apostle/Messenger of God?


    A Buddha is ONLY a preacher
    ************************

    'You yourself must make an effort,
    The Buddhas are only preachers'
    [The Dhammapada, Vol X p 67]

    Allah states:
    '...The Apostles duty is only to preach the message'
    [Surah al Nur (24): 54]

    Therefore, a Buddha is one who invites and teaches people to truth.


    A Buddha is a human being
    *********************

    'It is only a human being that can be a Buddha, a diety cannot'
    [Warren, p 15]

    Allah also states that Muhammad is a human being:
    'Say, I am but a man like yourselves...'
    [Surah al Kahf (18): 110]

    Therefore, a Buddha is a human being.


    A Buddha is a male
    ***************

    Of human beings it is only the male sex that can be Buddhas:

    'They are never of the female sex
    Nor as hermaphrodites appear
    As eunuch are they never classed
    Those destined for Buddaship'
    [Warren, p 34]

    Allah states in the Quran that the Apostles/Messengers are male:
    'And before thee also the apostles We sent were but men to whom We granted
    inspiration...'
    [Surah an Nahl (16): 43]

    Therefore a Buddha is a male. Note, that ALL Messengers of Allah i.e. those
    to whom were revealed texts, were men. However, Ibn Hazm [Volume V, pp 17-19
    al-Fisal fi al-Milal wa-al-Ahwa'i wa-al-Nihal] wrote a text arguing that a
    Prophet CAN be a woman. The difference between a Prophet and a Messenger is
    that a Prophet has guidance from God e.g. Mary, the Mother of Jesus who we
    are told was informed that she would have a child without a man touching
    her. However as Mary, mother of Jesus, did NOT recieve a revelation, she
    would not be classified as a Messenger - and Allah knows best.


    A Buddha is a gifted being
    ********************

    'These are the five donations great,
    The gift of treasure
    Gift of child
    The gift of wife,of royal rule
    And last, the gift of life andlimb'
    [Warren, p 79]

    Prophet Muhammad when he married Khadija, became amongst the wealthiest in
    the cityof Mecca; had children; was married; ruled the Muslims; and was a
    human being.

    Salvation according to Budda
    ***********************

    'You yourself must make an effort,
    The Buddhas are only preachers,
    The thoughtful who enter the way
    are freed from the bondage ofMars'
    [The Dhammapada, Vol X p 67]

    The last words of Budda were:

    'Work out your salvation with diligence'
    [Carus, p 211]

    Similarly, as Islam teaches, a person attains salvation by asking Allah to
    forgive them. For example:

    'Every man's fate will be on his own neck...'
    [Surah al Israa (17): 13]

    'Every soul will be held in pledge for it's deeds'
    [Surah al Mudaththir (74): 38]

    'Anyone who has done an atom's weight of good shall see it, and anyone who h
    as done an atom's weight of evil shall see it'
    [Surah al Zalzalah (99): 7-8]

    Could it therefore be shown that the term Buddha refers to one who taught
    Islam, and it was Budda who was a Messenger/Apostle of Allah as well?

    In essence the teachings of 'Buddhism' are similar to the teachings of
    'Islam'; that is to believe in One God without partner. To forgive, to show
    kindness, and to praise the Creator.


    He will be known as MAITREYA
    **************************

    The person who Buddha Gautama prophesised bears different names in different
    languages.

    In Pali, his name is METTEYA.
    In Sanskirt, MAITREYA.
    In Burmese, AREMIDEIA.
    In Chinese, MEITALIYE.
    In Tibetan, BYAMSPA.
    In Japanese, MIROKU.


    The English equivalent of METTEYA:

    A. 'Teacher of love' - Max Muller
    B. 'He whose name is kindness' - Carus
    C. 'Buddha of kindness' - Rhys Davids
    D. 'Friendliness' - Fausboll
    E. 'Loving and compassionate' - Williams
    F. 'Merficul' - Beal
    G. 'Compassionate' - Getty
    H. 'Kind, sympathy, active interest in others' - Steade


    RAHMAT is the Arabic equivalent of the word MAITREYA.

    The Arabic-English lexicon by Lane gives the follow defenition of Rahmat:

    'Mercy, pity, compassion, tenderness ofheart, inclination requiring the
    exercise of favour, and beneficence; pardon and forgiveness'


    When we go through works written by men of various nations on Islam, we
    observe one curious thing. The word 'Mohammed' is spelled in a number of
    ways, as 'Mahamet' or 'Mahomet' or 'Mehemet' or 'Mahemmet' ...

    A. 'Mahamet' or 'Mahomet': is comprised of MAHA and METTA. The word MAHA in
    Pali and Sanskrit means 'Great, illustrious'. Therefore the word 'Mahamet'
    or 'Mahomet' means 'a great mercy'. The Quran refers to Muhammad as 'a great
    mercy'.

    B. 'Mohamet' is compposed of MOH and METTA. MOH in Sanskrit means,
    'affection or sympathy'; therefore the entire word means, 'of an
    affectionate or of sympathetic mercy'.

    C. 'Mehemet' is composed of MEH and METTA. MEH means rain, therefore the
    entire word means, 'a man who rains mercy in general'.

    D. 'Mahemmet' is composed of MAHEMA which in Sanskrit means mercy, therefore
    the entire word means, 'a great mercy'


    Prophet Muhammad is described as a Mercy to Mankind; and therefore fits the
    defenition of the word MAITREYA.

    The voice of MAITREYA
    ********************

    Asanga answered, '... The exquisite voice of the MAITREYA is soft and pure
    and refined; those who hear it can never tire, those who listen are never
    satiated'.
    [Si-Yu-Ki, Vol I p 229]

    Bara (ra) relates:
    'I heard the Apostle of Allah reciting the chapter, The Fig and Olive,
    during the night prayer, and I neversaw a man more sweet-voiced than he'
    [Sahih of Bukhari Vol I p 107]

    Zemad (ra) said:
    'The Prophet has reached the bottom of the ocean of eloquence'
    [Sahih of Muslim, Vol 7 p 874]

    And Allah commanded Prophet Muhammad:
    'Invite men to the way of the Lord with wisdom and BEAUTIFUL preaching...'
    [Surah an Nahl (16): 125]

    And Allah commands:
    '...And recite the Quran in measured rhythmic tones'
    [Surah al Muzammil (73): 4]

    [The text is an Abstract from 'Muhammad in Buddhist Scriptures by U. Ali,
    Republican Books, Vol I, 1998]


    From the evidence above, and that which I have read elsehwere, I conclude
    the following:

    1. The term Budda refers to an Apostle of God

    2. That the teachings of 'Buddha Gautama' from which the philosophy of
    Buddhism are originated were in fact true, i.e. that he preached belief in 1
    God

    3. That Gautama was an Apostle of Allah

    Therefore, a Buddha was an Apostle of God, and Prophet Muhammad was the last
    Apostle of God.

    And Allah knows best.


    May Allah the Almighty have mercy and guide us all, ameen.

    basically you want to say that Buddha was also a messenger of Allah? may be, may be not, I don't what his exact teachings were so I can't be sure about it.

    this article just clicked in my mind.... "bedouin", "baddoo" (in Arab world) could it be a derivative of someterm meaning "one who follows buddha"???

      I don't think so. Odd. As far as I know, Arabs don't seem to know about or be much influenced by India in anyway.
      On the other hand it was Arabs who transferred the concept of zero to West from India.
      They seem to be aware of China though.
      Like Prophet Mohammed was supposed to have said 'Seek knowledge even if you have to go to China for it' or something.

        There is a theory that the Arabian Peninsula was joined to the subcontinent. If you see the shape it makes sense. Plus, there is a place in Sri Lanka which has some connection to Adam (alaihe salam) I think his grave is there and Hawwa (alaihe salam) is buried in Jeddah.

        The reference to China is doubtful.

          I am aware of the foot in Sri Lanka. It is a depression in stone that looks like a foot, probably pre historic.
          The Buddhists call it the foot of Budhha and Hindus call it the foot of Rama ofcourse
          Yes, the one on China seems to be a weak Hadith. However I was talking about something different, Arab's cultural influences.

                    It's very interesting how one can make connections between Budha and Mohammed. But I'm sure that there is definitely a connection between Lord Rama and the muslim world which was there even before Mohammed was born and is carrying on even today.

                    First point I like to make is the month of Ramadan, 'DAN' means charity, so it means 'give to charity in the name of Rama'. So the muslim world goes fasting for 30 days and give to the poor in the name of Rama. But being muslims, why give to charity in the name of Rama? you may ask. Well there was a time when in the Arab world Ram was known as 'Ram Allah' and in India he has always been known as 'Ram Bhagwan', both meaning the same thing offcourse, there is a place called 'Ramallah' in Palestine even today.

                    The other connection one may want to make is that it is considered that Ram Bhagwan was born in Ayodhya in India (1400BC t0 1500BC). He had a great empire and even 3500 years later people talk about Ram Rajjya as one of the greatest and the best empire, even Mahatma Gandhi sang praises of Ram Rajjya til his death.

                    It was at about the same time when the great Pharao Rameses was ruling over Egypt, whose creations of the pyramids can only be the work of God or someone very close to God.

                    Could it be the same King Rama then who ruled not just the Indian subcontinent but the Arab world also and becaue he was such a great king he was known as 'Ram Allah' 'Ram Bhagwan' or 'Ram Eses'. Worshipping a King as a God still exists in places like Japan and Thailand etc.

                    So there you are, my conclusion is that the muslim world goes fasting in the name of Rama in the 9th month and the hindus at about the same sort of time go fasting in the name of Rama for 9 days and the ninth night is called Ramnaumi.

                    So, tell me please, was Ram Bhagwan, Ram Allah and Ram Eses one and the same?????

                      Banta Saab,
                      I hope you are not serious!!
                      Still if in future some Archeologist digs up Arabia and prooves it is a long lost part of the continent it will be interesting.
                      I mean, the whole sub-continent itself separated from Africa eons ago.
                      Himalays were formed when that land struck Asia!!!
                      So such scenarios are not too far fetched.
                      As I commented somewhere else, it is intriguing that nomadic traders like Arabs apparently have such little contact with the sub continent.

                        its is dhan....
                        i hope u r intelligent enuff to know the difference and then its just a whole word ramadhan....
                        and ask a billion muslims to say it in two steps - rama and dhan and u will never hear RAMA as u say it....

                        anyway your whole discussion was so lame and silly....
                        Both Halal & Haram r evident but between them r doubtful things, most ppl have no knowledge about them. So whoever saves himself from suspicious things saves his religion & honor, & whoever indulges in suspicious things indulges in Haram.
