Dear Brother / Sister,
The implications in Indian holy scriptures:
In Indian Holy Scriptures such as Paru 8, Khand 8, Adhya 8 and Shalok 5-8, the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is mentioned as follows:
“A soul discipliner mellacha (an alien language speaking and an inhabitant of an alien country) named Muhammad will come along with his companions. After his arrival, he washes himself in Raja, Punjab, and Ganges rivers. They say, ‘O you! The pride of mankind, the inhabitant of the land of Arabia, you have gathered a great power to kill the Satan.’ “(Prof. Dr. Muhammad Hamidullah, The interpretation of The Holy Quran)
It is quite striking that the name of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is stated exactly in the statement above. The words ‘the pride of mankind’, which are mentioned in the same line are of the same meaning as the name of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), which is fakhr al-alam (the pride of realms).
Gautama Buddha speaks of an elevated person who will honor the world after his death. The name of this person is matteya in Palice language, maitreya in the Sanskrit language, armidia in the Burmese language and this person will be mild-tempered and kind-hearted and call people to the right path. The meaning of the names that are mentioned in the news given by Buddha a long time ago is “mercy”. As it is known, the Quran states the following for the Prophet Muhammad in verse 107 of the chapter al-Anbiya: “We sent thee not save as a mercy for the peoples.”
The following is stated in one of the manuscripts:
“Buddha said: ‘I am not the first buddha (guide) to come to the world, and will not be the last either. At a certain time, another person will come to the world. He is also blessed, enlightened and someone extremely able in management. He will teach you the same eternal truths as I taught you.’ Ananda asked, ‘How will he be known?’ Buddha answered: ‘He will be known as maitreya (mercy).’”
In Pali and Sanskrit manuscripts, the name of this blessed person is mentioned as Maho, Maha, and Metta. The first two mean “great illuminator” and the last “gracious”, all of which are the attributes of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). If it is examined carefully, it will be seen that the names Mohamet and Mahamet, which indicate the original name of the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh), are derived from the words maha and metta.
Let us carry on our research on the Torah (Old Testament), the Gospel (New Testament), and the Psalms. The most extensive research ever conducted on this point belongs to Husayn al-Jisri. This Syrian scholar, who lived between 1261-1327 H and whose parents were descendants from the family of the Prophet Muhammad, took out 114 signs from the holy books in question in relation to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) and published them in his book entitled Risala al-Hamidiyya.
Even in the Torah, which has the property of being the most distorted one of the old Holy Scriptures, the following signs with regard to the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) are present:
“When he sees riders, horsemen in pairs, riders on donkeys, riders on camels, let him listen diligently, very diligently.”(Isaiah xxı, 7)
One of the two riders announced by the Prophet Isaiah (pbuh), who was riding a donkey here, is Jesus (pbuh) because Jesus (pbuh) entered Jerusalem on the back of a donkey. It is clear that the one on the back of a camel is the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh). He entered Madinah on the back of a camel.
By the way, let us state here that in Bible translations, the words faraklit or pharaklit (perikletos) have been kept as they are whereas in recent translations, in Arabic translations, this word is translated as muazzi (comforter).
In the scripture of Shuayb (Jethro), the name of the Prophet Muhammad is mentioned as Mushaffah, which exactly means “Muhammad”. Munhamanna, which is mentioned in the Torah, is the literal equivalent of Muhammad. (As it is known, the lexical meaning of Muhammad is the one praised many times) Apart from them, the name of Muhammad is mentioned as Ahyed in the Torah, Ahmad in the Bible.
We finish the issue with a hadith. “My name is Muhammad in the Quran, Ahmad in the Bible, and Ahyed in the Torah.”
