ISLAMIC AL-JUMUAA REMINDER AND LEGACY GROUP, (http://aljumaareminder.com/), learning a bit from other scriptures that were corrupted:

PROPHET MUHAMMAD IS ALSO PROPHESIZED IN BUDDHIST, HINDU AND PARSI SCRIPTURES

The following has been taken from the book: PROPHECIES OF THE HOLY QURAN; Revised Edition; by ‘ALI AKBAR

Prophecies in Buddhist Scriptures; Source: PROPHECIES OF THE HOLY QURAN; Revised Edition; by ‘ALI AKBAR; Page 20-21

I would remind my readers that the Buddhist Scriptures have been written in more than one language, so I have chosen the following translation extracts from the Ceylon sources.

Ananda said to the Blessed One, “Who shall teach us when thou art gone?”

            And the Blessed One replied:- “I am not the first Buddha who came upon the earth, nor shall I be the last. In due time another Buddha will arise in the world, a holy one, a supremely enlightened one, endowed with wisdom in conduct, auspicious, knowing the universe, an incomparable leader of men, a master of angels and mortals. He will reveal to you the same eternal truths which I have taught you. He will preach his religion, glorious in its origin, glorious at the climax, and glorious at the goal. He will proclaim a religious life, wholly perfect and pure, such as I now proclaim. His disciples will number many thousands, while mine number many hundreds.”

            Ananda said, “How shall we know him?”

            The Blessed One replied, “He will be known as Maitreya…

The above quotation is somewhat controversial, as you can see that Buddha predicted that the Blessed One will come, and in the language of the Buddhist Scriptures the word for him is Maitreya and the meaning of this is A Mercy and The Blessed One.

After the death of Buddha, his followers attempted to identify some of their spiritual leaders as the Maitreya. The Christians also sought to identify Jesus as the Maitreya. Also the Hindus with certain of their Spiritual leaders.

From my studies, and information gathered, I cannot see anyone but the Prophet Muhammad filling this position of Maitreya.

The Holy Quran, however, is the only religious Book which states clearly that Muhammad will be A Mercy to all the nations.

“We have not sent thee O Muhammad, but as a Mercy to all the nations” (Qur’an 21:107)

The Holy Prophet himself said:

“I have not been sent for cursing, but as an invited (unto God) and a Mercy.”

If any reader is interested in obtaining more details, he can find them in Muhammad in Parsi, Hindoo and Buddhist Scriptures, by A. Vidyarathi and U. ‘Ali. Published by Abbas Manzil Library, Allahabad 3, India.

 

Prophecies in Hindu Scriptures; Source: PROPHECIES OF THE HOLY QURAN; Revised Edition; by ‘ALI AKBAR; Page 21-22

In Hindu scriptures, too, there are a good many prophecies about the Holy Prophet Muhammad. A few of these are in the Puranas. The one in the Bhavishya Purana is the clearest of all. The fifth word from left to right is the name of our Holy Prophet. It gives even the name of the country of the Prophet, “Marusthalnivasinan”, denizen of the desert (Arabia). For this reason the Arya Samaj has tried to cast doubt on the authenticity of this Purana. Their argument is that it contains a reference to the Prophet. According to Sanatanist Pandits and the vast bulk of Hindus, nevertheless, it is considered very authentic. The prophecy runs as follows:

            Just then an illiterate man with the epithet Teacher, Mahamad by name, came along with his companions. Raja (Bhoja in a vision) to that Great Deva, the denizen of Arabia, purifying with the Ganges water and with the five things of cow offered sandal wood and pay worship to him. O denizen of Arabia and Lord of the Holies to thee is my adoration. O, thou who hast found many ways and means to destroy all the devils of the world. O pure one from among the illiterates, O sinless one, the spirit of truth and absolute master, to thee is my adoration. Accept me at thy feet. [Bhavishya Purana Parv 3, Khand 3, Adhya 3, Shalok 5-8.]

And again

            O people, listen this emphatically! The man of praise (Muhammad) will be raised among the people. We take the emigrant in our shelter from sixty thousand and ninety enemies whose conveyances are twenty camels and she camels, whose loftiness of position touches the heaven and lowers it.

            He gave to Mamah Rishi hundreds of gold coins, ten circles, three hundred Arab horses and ten thousand cows. [Atharva Veda, Kanda 20, Sukta 127, Mantra 1-3.]

 

Prophecies in the Parsi Scriptures; Source: PROPHECIES OF THE HOLY QURAN; Revised Edition; by ‘ALI AKBAR; Page 23-25

The Parsi religion is one of the oldest religions in the world, perhaps as old as, if not older than, the Hindu religion. It has two collections of Scriptures – the Dasatir and the Zand Avasta, which may be called respectively the Old and the New Testaments of the Parsi religion. In Dasatir, No. 14, which is associated with the name of Sasanll, there is not only a corroboration of the Doctrines and Teachings of Islam, but a clear prophecy as to the Advent of the Prophet Muhammad. The prophecy is made in the clearest terms, and is preceded by a vision of a state of extreme disorder and demoralization in Persia.

It runs thus:

            “When the Persians should sink so low in morality, a man will be born in Arabia whose followers will upset their throne, religion and everything. The mighty stiff-necked ones of Persia will be overpowered. The house which was built (referring to Abraham building the Kaaba) and in which many idols have been placed will be purged of idols, and people will say their prayers facing towards it. His followers will capture the towns of the Parsis and Taus and Balkh and other big places round about. People will embroil with one another. The wise men of Persia and others will join his followers.”

This prophecy is contained in a book which has forever been in the hands of the Parsis, and its words do not admit of two interpretations. The coming man is to be an Arab. The Persians would join his faith. Fire temples would be destroyed. Idols would be removed. People would say their prayers facing towards the Ka’bah. Can this prophecy fit in with any person other than Muhammad?

Muslims who have little or no knowledge of other religions, may be surprised to find the advent of Prophet Muhammad predicted in the Hindu, Parsi and Buddhist scriptures when these people worship the cow, fire, sun, nature and idols. But Muslims must remember that in the Holy Quran Allah says that every nation has its prophets, and I give here three verses as follows:

“And there is not a people but a warner has gone among them.” (Qur’an 35:24)

“And for every nation there is a messenger.” (Qur’an 10:47)

“And (We sent) messengers We have mentioned to thee before, and messengers we have not mentioned to thee.” (Qur’an 4:164)

According to the Hadith, the Holy Prophet said that there were 124,000 prophets sent before him, and a Muslim must respect all of them equally and make no distinction between them, including the Prophet himself.

Thus if, on one hand, the Holy Prophet Muhammad testified to the truth of all the other prophets, belonging to all the different nations of the world, and made it a part of his religion, on the other hand, the Scriptures of these previous prophets are found to contain clear prophecies about the advent of our Holy Prophet Muhammad (The Peace and Blessings of Allah be upon him). This mutual corroboration, by furnishing a great evidence of the spiritual providence of God for humanity, strengthens people’s faith in religion in general, and in the religion of Islam in particular.

 

IARLG comments: Just as there are ahadiths which informs us all Messengers informed their people of the Dajjal (Anti-crist) it seems that all previous Messengers must have most likely also informed their people about the coming of Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) as seen in (Qur’an 3:81). One of the ways of helping him was to ensure that there was at least one mention of Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) in their Scriptures and teachings. Just as they had to mention the ultimate misguider (Dajjal) they most likely had to mention the ultimate guide [Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam)] from Allah. And Allah knows Best.

To see how Prophet Muhammad (sallallahu alaihi wasallam) is prophesized in the Bible {Taurat (Torah), Injeel (Gospel), Zabur (Psalms) etc} please download our book “THE QURAN CONFIRMS THE TEACHINGS OF JESUS WHO IS A MUSLIM” for free and read it to find the proofs.
