    Muhammad (pbuh) in all religions

    Muhammad
    Muhammad (pbuh) is mentioned by name in the Song of Solomon 5:16. The Hebrew
    word used in this verse is Mahamaddim. The ending letters ‘im’ is a
    plural of respect, majesty and grandeur, just as in Elohim (the God). Without
    ‘im’ the name becomes Mahamadd which was translated as "altogether lovely" in
    the Authorized Version of the Bible or 'The Praised One', 'the one worthy of Praise.' In Arabic, Muhammad means the one who is most praised.

    * Song of Solomon 5:16
    His
    mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and
    this is my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.
    The phrase "he is altogether lovely" reads in the Hebrew as "he is
    Mahamaddim."

    Haggai 2:7-9
    And I will shake
    all nations, and the Himada of all the nations will come; and I will
    fill this house with glory, says the Lord of hosts. Mine is the silver, mine
    is the gold, says the Lord of hosts, the glory of my last house shall be
    greater than that of the first one, says the Lord of hosts; and in this place
    I will give Shalom, says the Lord of Hosts. (Quoted from Reference 4).
    The Hebrew words Mahmad, Mahamod, Himdah, and Hemed appearing in the Old
    Testament and the Arabic words Muhammad and Ahmad are all derived from the same
    root "H, M and D," and refer to the same general meaning. These Hebrew words
    convey qualities as well as the person depending on the phrase used in the Old
    Testament. The Hebrew word Shalom and the Arabic word Salam have the same
    meaning - peace. They are derived from the root alphabets "S, L and M." Islam is
    also derived from the same root alphabets and means the path of peace.

    Bhavishya Puran, Prati Sarg Parv III: 3, 3,
    Mantra 5
    A malechha (belonging to a foreign country and speaking
    foreign language) spiritual teacher will appear with his companions. His
    name will be Mahamad...
    Sama Veda II: 6, Mantra
    8
    "Ahmad acquired religious law (Shariah) from his Lord.
    This religious law is full of wisdom. I receive light from him just as from
    the sun."
    Prophet Muhammad's other name was Ahmad (both are from
    root letters h, m and d), both words have the meaning the "praised one" except
    the latter emphasizes a higher degree to it. The Holy Qur'an states that
    Prophet 'Isa (Jesus, pbuh) mentioned the last prophet's name as
    Ahmad.
    Epistle of Sasan I,
    Dasatir
    When the Persians will do such deeds, a man from
    among the Arabs will be born whose followers shall overthrow and dissolve
    the kingdom and religion of the Persians
    ...Instead of the temple of fire
    and the house of idols they will see the House of Abraham without any
    idols as their Qibla.
    ...And they (Muslims) will be a mercy to the
    worlds.
    ...And their leader (Prophet Muhammad) will be an eloquent man
    whose words and message will be clear and far-reaching.

    Kedar
    Genesis 25:12-16
    12 Now these
    are the generations of Ishmael, Abraham's son, whom Hagar the Egyptian, Sarah's handmaid, bare unto Abraham:
    13 And these are the names of the
    sons of Ishmael, by their names, according to their generations: the
    firstborn of Ishmael, Nebajoth; and Kedar, and Adbeel, and Mibsam,
    14 And Mishma, and
    Dumah, and Massa,
    15 Hadar, and Tema,
    Jetur, Naphish, and Kedemah:
    16 These are the sons of Ishmael, and these
    are their names, by their towns, and by their castles; twelve princes
    according to their nations. Kedar and Ancient Arabs

    Makkah,
    Bakka, Baca And Paran
    Psalms 84:5-6
    5 Blessed is
    the man whose strength is in thee; in whose heart are the ways of them.
    6
    Who passing through the valley of Baca make it a well; the rain
    also filleth the pools.
    Qur'an 3:96-97
    96 The
    first House (of worship) appointed for men was that at Bakka full
    of blessing and of guidance for all kinds of beings:
    97 In it are signs
    manifest; (for example) the Station of Abraham; whoever enters it
    attains security; pilgrimage thereto is a duty men owe to Allah those
    who can afford the journey; but if any deny faith Allah stands not in need of
    any of his creatures.
    Genesis 21:17-21
    17 And God
    heard the voice of the lad; and the angel of God called Hagar out of heaven, and said unto her, What aileth thee, Hagar? fear not; for God hath
    heard the voice of the lad where he is.
    18 Arise, lift up the lad, and hold
    him in thine hand; for I will make him a great nation.
    19 And God
    opened her eyes, and she saw a well of water; and she went, and filled
    the bottle with water, and gave the lad drink.
    20 And God was with
    the lad; and he grew, and dwelt in the wilderness, and became an archer.
    21
    And he dwelt in the wilderness of Paran: and his mother took him a wife out of the land of
    Egypt.
    Atharva Veda X, 2, Mantra
    33
    Brahma (Abraham) stayed in this abode which is
    illumined by heavenly light and covered with Divine blessings. It is the place
    that gives (spiritual) life to the people and is unconquerable.

    Ka'bah
    And Makkah
    Isaiah 60 Verses 6 to 18:
    6
    The multitude of camels shall cover thee, the dromedaries of Midian and Ephah;
    all they from Sheba shall come: they shall bring gold and incense; and they
    shall shew forth the praises of the LORD.
    7 All the flocks of Kedar shall be gathered together unto thee, the rams of Nebaioth shall minister unto
    thee: they shall come up with acceptance on mine altar, and I will glorify
    the house of my glory.
    10 And the sons of strangers shall build up
    thy walls, and their kings shall minister unto thee: for in my wrath I
    smote thee, but in my favour have I had mercy on thee.
    11 Therefore thy
    gates shall be open continually; they shall not be shut day nor night; that men may bring unto thee the forces of the Gentiles, and that their kings
    may be brought.
    12 For the nation and kingdom that will not serve thee
    shall perish; yea, those nations shall be utterly wasted.
    18 Violence
    shall no more be heard in thy land, wasting nor destruction within thy borders; but thou shalt call thy walls Salvation, and thy gates
    Praise.
    Atharva Veda X, 2, Mantras 28 and
    31
    28. Whether it is built high, its walls are in a straight
    line or not, but God is seen in every corner of it. He who knows
    the House of God, knows it because God is remembered there.
    31. This
    abode of the angels has eight circuits and nine gates. It is
    unconquerable, there is eternal life in it and it is resplendent with
    Divine light.
    The Ka'bah is not exactly cubical and its sides are not of
    the same length. The Holy Sanctuary (Haram) of which Ka'abah is at the center
    remains open day and night throughout the year and it is always filled with
    people praying and supplicating to Allah (the One True God). Muslims face toward
    it during prayer forming circle in the Haram (Holy House) and the circle extends
    out in this manner throughout the planet Earth.

    The holy sanctuary (Haram) has remained unconquerable. Abraha al-Ashram, the
    Abbysinian viceroy of Yemen, tried to demolish it in 570 CE with a strong army
    and hordes of elephants but was prevented from entering the city (Holy
    precinct). The people of Makkah had decided not to defend the Ka'bah, fled the
    city and took refuge in nearby hills overlooking Ka'bah. By Allah's Command, the
    'Abaabeel' (flying creatures, birds) pelted stones at Abraha's army and
    decimated it, leaving them like green crops devoured by cattle. This incident is
    described in the Surah (chapter) 105 of the Qur'an. The year 570 CE is popularly
    known by the Arabs as 'The year of the Elephant,' and Prophet Muhammad was born
    in that year.


    I
    Cannot Read
    Isaiah 29:12 (read verses 11
    through 18 for full context)
    And the book is delivered to him that is not
    learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not
    learned.

    Revelation Piece By Piece
    Isaiah 28:10-13 (read verses 10
    through 16 for full context)
    10 For precept must be upon precept, precept
    upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little, and there a
    little:
    11 For with stammering lips and another tongue will
    he speak to this people.
    12 To whom he said, This is the rest wherewith ye
    may cause the weary to rest; and this is the refreshing: yet they would not
    hear.
    13 But the word of the LORD was unto them precept upon precept,
    precept upon precept; line upon line, line upon line; here a little,
    and there a little; that they might go, and fall backward, and be broken,
    and snared, and taken.
    Kuntap Sukt 4, Atharva
    Veda
    Disseminate the truth, O ye who glorifies [Ahmad], disseminate the truth, just as a bird sings on a
    ripe fruited tree. Thy lips and tongue move swiftly like the sharp
    blade of a pair of shears.
    It refers to the Prophet Muhammad's condition when he received revelation
    through Archangel Jibril (Gabriel).


    Mine
    Elect
    Isaiah 42:1-13
    1 Behold my
    servant, whom I uphold; mine elect, in whom my soul delighteth; I have
    put my spirit upon him: he shall bring forth judgment to the Gentiles.
    2
    He shall not cry, nor lift up, nor cause his voice to be heard in the
    street.
    3 A bruised reed shall he not break, and the smoking flax shall
    he not quench: he shall bring forth judgment unto truth.
    4 He shall not
    fail nor be discouraged, till he have set judgment in the earth: and the isles
    shall wait for his law.
    5 Thus saith God the LORD, he that created the
    heavens, and stretched them out; he that spread forth the earth, and that
    which cometh out of it; he that giveth breath unto the people upon it, and
    spirit to them that walk therein:
    6 I the LORD have called thee in
    righteousness, and will hold thine hand, and will keep thee, and give thee for
    a covenant of the people, for a light of the Gentiles;
    7 To open the blind
    eyes, to bring out the prisoners from the prison, and them that sit in darkness out of the prison house.
    8 I am the LORD: that is my name: and
    my glory will I not give to another, neither my praise to graven
    images.
    9 Behold, the former things are come to pass, and new things do
    I declare: before they spring forth I tell you of them.
    10 Sing unto the
    LORD a new song, and his praise from the end of the earth, ye that go down
    to the sea, and all that is therein; the isles, and the inhabitants
    thereof.
    11 Let the wilderness and the cities thereof lift up their voice,
    the villages that Kedar doth inhabit: let the inhabitants of the rock sing, let them shout from
    the top of the mountains.
    12 Let them give glory unto the LORD, and declare
    his praise in the islands.
    13 The LORD shall go forth as a mighty man, he
    shall stir up jealousy like a man of war: he shall cry, yea, roar; he shall
    prevail against his enemies.

    Him
    That Fled
    Isaiah 21:13-17
    13 The burden
    upon Arabia. In the forest in Arabia shall ye lodge, O ye traveling companies of Dedanim.
    14 The inhabitants of the land of Tema brought water to him that was thirsty, they prevented with their bread him
    that fled.
    15 For they fled from the swords, from the drawn
    sword, and from the bent bow, and from the grievousness of war.
    16 For thus
    hath the Lord said unto me, Within a year, according to the years of an
    hireling, and all the glory of Kedar shall fail:
    17 And the residue of the number of archers, the mighty men
    of the children of Kedar, shall be diminished: for the LORD God of Israel hath
    spoken it.

    Ten
    Thousands Saints
    Deuteronomy 33:1-3
    1 And this
    is the blessing, wherewith Moses the man of God blessed the children of
    Israel before his death.
    2 And he said, The LORD came from Sinai, and rose
    up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from mount Paran,
    and he came with ten thousands of saints: from his right hand went a
    fiery law for them.
    3 Yea, he loved the people; all his saints are in thy
    hand: and they sat down at thy feet; every one shall receive of thy
    words.
    Rig Veda V, 27, Mantra 1
    The
    wagon-possessor, the truthful and truth-loving, extremely wise, powerful and
    generous, Mamah [Mohammad] has favored me with his words. The son of
    the All-powerful, possessing all good attributes, the mercy
    for the worlds has become famous with ten thousand
    [companions].
    Kuntap Sukt, Atharva Veda, Mantra
    3
    He gave the Mamah Rishi a hundred gold coins, ten
    chaplets, three hundred steeds and ten thousand cows.
    It refers to one hundred early companions of the Prophet, eighty of them
    migrated to Abyssinia; ten elect companions who were given the good news of
    paradise by the Prophet; three hundred thirteen companions of the battle of
    Badr; and ten thousand companions who accompanied the Prophet in the triumphant
    entry of Makkah and cleansing of Ka'bah of Idols. A cow or an ox as described in the
    Vedas represents both as a symbol of war and peace. The companions of the
    Prophet had both these qualities. They were saintly men, pious and compassionate
    like a cow, and they were fierce and strong in establishing peace and justice.


    A
    Prophet From Among Their Brethren
    Deutronomy 18:18-19
    18 I will
    raise them up a Prophet from among their brethren, like unto thee, and
    will put my words in his mouth; and he shall speak unto them all that I
    shall command him.
    19 And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not
    hearken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require
    it of him.
    And he (Ishmael) shall dwell in the presence of all his
    brethren. (Genesis 16:12).
    And he (Ishmael) died in the presence of all his
    brethren. (Genesis 25:18).
    One of numerous examples of '...and I will put my words into his mouth...' is
    given below from the Qur'an; the verses begin with the word 'Say':
    "Say (O Muhammad): He Is Allah the One and Only;
    Allah,
    the Eternal Absolute;
    He Begetteth Not, Nor Is He Begotten:
    And There Is
    None like unto Him.
    (Qur'an 112:1-4)
    The evidence for 'he shall speak in my name':

    Every Surah (Chapter) of the Qur'an, except the ninth, begins with the
    words:
    "In The Name of God, Most Gracious, Most
    Merciful."

    There
    Never Was A People Without A Warner
    Qur'an 35:24
    Verily We have sent thee (Muhammad) in
    truth as a bearer of glad tidings and as a warner: and there never was a
    people without a warner having lived among them (in the
    past).
    Qur'an 16:36
    For We assuredly sent amongst every
    People an apostle (with the Command) "Serve Allah and eshew
    Evil": of the people were some whom Allah guided and some on whom Error
    became inevitably (established). So travel through the earth and see what
    was the end of those who denied (the Truth).

    Allah's Covenant With Prophets
    Qur'an 3:81-82
    Behold! Allah took the covenant of the
    Prophets saying: "I give you a Book and Wisdom; then comes to you an Apostle
    confirming what is with you; do ye believe him and render him help." Allah
    said: "Do ye agree and take this My Covenant as binding on you?" They said:
    "We agree." He said: "Then bear witness and I am with you among the
    witnesses." If any turn back after this they are perverted transgressors.

    No
    Distinction Between Prophets
    Qur'an 3:84-85
    Say (O Muhammad): "We believe in Allah
    and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham,
    Isma'il, Isaac, Jacob and the Tribes, and in (Books) given to Moses, Jesus
    and the Prophets from their Lord; we make no distinction between one and
    another among them and to Allah do we bow our will (in Islam)." If anyone
    desires a religion other than Islam (submission to Allah) never will it be
    accepted of him; and in the Hereafter he will be in the ranks of those who have lost (all spiritual good).

    A
    Mercy To The Worlds
    Qur'an 21:107
    And We did not send you (O
    Muhammad) except as a Mercy to the worlds.

    No
    Compulsion In Religion
    Qur'an 2:256
    There is no compulsion in
    religion.
    The right direction is henceforth distinct from
    error.
    And he who rejecteth false deities and believeth in Allah hath
    grasped a firm handhold which will never break.
    Allah is Hearer,
    Knower.

    Allah: Allah is the proper
    name of the One True God, creator and sustainer of the universe, who does not
    have a partner or associate, and He did not beget nor was He begotten. The word Allah is used by the Arab Christians and Jews for The God (Eloh-im in
    Hebrew; 'Allaha' in Aramaic, the mother tongue of Jesus, pbuh). The word Allah does not have a plural or gender.
    pbuh: Peace Be Upon Him. This statement is used for all Prophets of
    Allah. Abreviations derived from Arabic words are (s) and
    (as).

    THank you Doctor Naveed bhai.

    Are you a Qadiyani?

    I checked out this 'Vidyarthi'. He is a Muslim Scholar despite the Sanskrit name right?
    http://www.muslim.org/islam/miws/author.htm

    >>Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi (1888 – 1977), who bore the title vidyarthi due to his extensive knowledge of the Hindu Vedas, was a scholar of the major religions of the world and their languages, and a missionary of Islam of the Lahore Ahmadiyya Movement. The environment of multi-faith debate, polemic and discussion, prevailing in the Indian subcontinent in the early 20th century, greatly influenced and interested him. This was one reason why, in 1907, he joined the Ahmadiyya Movement at the hands of its Founder, Hazrat Mirza Ghulam Ahmad, as this Movement had a broad, universalistic outlook towards other religions, regarding all of them as originally revealed, a fact first disclosed by Islam. <<

    Well, it is interesting anyway.
    I am just waiting to see what Closet/ Open Wahabis on the board have to say about this?

        i can say with reasonable surety from my familiarity with them, that the quotes of hindu scriptures cited here are very very wildly interpreted. to put it mildly, not really a serious article.
        Simple ain't easy.

          doctornaveeed bhai,
          Can you tell us What you THINK as well as giving this article?

          I am not diverting the topic when I asked if you are a Qadiyani.
          I know Qadiyanis and some other sects of Islam hold somewhat controversial views.
          It seemed to me from what I little I read about such sects that they are trying to reconcile Islam with other Religions, broaden it's appeal or something.

          Anyway a DEobandi or a Wahabi wouldn't have posted that article right?
