have indeed in the Messenger of Allah, a beautiful
pattern (of conduct)".
Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is also prophesised in the Samveda
Book II Hymn 6 verse 8:
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
"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
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
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
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
II. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) Prophesised in
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:
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.
He is a camel-riding Rishi, whose chariot touches
He is Mamah Rishi who is given a hundred gold coins,
ten chaplets (necklaces), three hundred good steeds
and ten thousand cows.
Vachyesv rebh. ‘Oh! ye who glorifies’.
The Sanskrit word Narashansah means ‘the praised one’,
which is the literal translation of the Arabic word
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
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."
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
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
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
The enemies’ defeat in the conquest of Makkah is
mentioned in Atharvaveda book 20 Hymn 21 verse no
"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
"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
"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."
