    It would be nice to have a “set your display picture to Mohammad day” reminiscent of the A campaign.

    Mohammed looks mysteriously like Jesus in that picture.

    Oddly enough Mohamed was one of the “super best friends” back in 2001 and nobody said squat … That episode can be seen (Mohamed and all) on the SPS webpage to this day — http://www.southparkstudios.com/episodes/103940

    I don’t get it.

    Why is this such a big deal?

    What confuses me is that القرآن does not forbid such things! They say that only the القرآن contains the rules, but then have to go to these الحديث to get all these extra rules. It just doesn’t make any sense.

    Like most of fundamentalism, it seems.

    I think every western website and blog should show the Southpark Mohammed for a year on the front page.

    #6: Indeed, a quick Google Image Search for “pictures of Muhammad” turned up this page.

    Also there’s a lot of early, Islamic portraits of Muhammad, with or without veil, on the relevant wiki page.

    Don’t forget that Muhammad is one of the “lawgivers” etched into the sides of the US Supreme Court building.

    Since the South Park authors live in USA and presumably already have to worry about christian fundamentalists getting nonlinear, not to mention local gangstas looking for money, the total effect of the threat is likely to be zero.
    BTW the extremists have had since 2001 to get angry about Cartman killing bin Laden and they only react now. Not very efficient, are they.

    Hey, South Park is bad, but not worth killing over! Team America had it’s moments, and Orgazmo was hilarious. I may disagree with Stone and Parker on most of their politics, but killing them is a bit much – just boycott South Park, mmkay?

    @ Thomas #6:

    Iranians are mostly Shi’ites, and Shi’a Islam has less of a problem than Sunni Islam with visual depictions of Muhammad, even today.

    I commented on this phenomena elsewhere during a similar outbreak of “everyone else is scum” type religious behavior. since I’m hungry I’m going to the whole post and go eat… probably pork chops…

    @ poopboy #39 I dont know if I can comment so much on history since I didnt write it, However I do see plenty of “kill the infidels” type antics on record. As for fundamentalism, I did use “resembling” as a qualifier. But lets try a very generalised description to try and illustrate my point. Religion uses sacred authority to maintain a internal rule based peace. This has developed over millenia as an effective way of structuring internal cohesion (culture). “Stuff” from outside that might “sneak in” and disturb the peace meets “resistance” (lets call this resistance external warfare) Western scientific thought however turns that around with an ongoing internal battle based on fairly strict rules (lets call this internal warfare) The results (products) of that warfare are then offered externally. Can you see where this is going? When science offers up its products externally this is perceived by religion as foreign and “disturbing the (internal) peace” Result (Threat!) “external warfare” Religion responds with externally focused (win at all costs) attacks which land inside the very strictly rule based type of (internal) warfare that science uses. (Insanity!) Science responds within its internal rules for warfare, (Threat!) Religion responds again externally (Insanity!)

    So on and on the cycle goes, Religion sheds the liberal exploratory thought around its edges and spirals into its bedrock beliefs. -Eg cults- Science guards its products and methods from external attack.- Eg Dawkins I know this is a bit generalised and not as precise as I’d like, but hey its the nelson mail not the new york times. People outside religion are extremely wary. It seems that the religious dont play by “the rules” and just “make it up as they go”………..? Religious people think science is “attacking its foundations” Oh well.. no one said western civilisation had to last forever.. Pass around the nose flutes and practice your chants…. ;)

    When I saw this I immediately changed my Facebook profile to it but alas it didn’t catch on — just 1 friend followed. Then I found out that this is apparently not even a pic of Muhammed but of Ali! I guess we’ll have to stick to the South Park drawing.

    salaam! please my dears don’t write anything wrong about the prophet Muhammd peace be upon him. because you do not know about him. He the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is the prophet which is mentioned in all the religious books as a true and real and future prophet for all the other prophets and all the humans. the prophet Muhammd peace be upon him is the prophet which is sent as a mercy for all the human beings

  19. My dear brothers the prophet Mohammad peace be upon him is mentioned in the bible as a true and real prophet.

    2.
    It is Mentioned in the book of Deuteronomy chapter 18:19

    “And it shall come to pass, that whosoever will not harken unto my words which he shall speak in my name, I will require it of him.” so please don’t say something wrong about the prophet Muhammd peace be upon him

    3.
    Muhammad (pbuh) is prophesised in the book of Isaiah:

    It is mentioned in the book of Isaiah chapter 29 verse 12:

    “And the book is delivered to him that is not learned, saying, Read this, I pray thee: and he saith, I am not learned.”

    When Archangel Gabrail commanded Muhammad (pbuh) by saying Iqra – “Read”, he replied, “I am not learned”.

    4.
    prophet Muhammad (pbuh) mentioned by name in the old testament:

    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is mentioned by name in the Song of Solomon chapter 5 verse 16:

    “Hikko Mamittakim we kullo Muhammadim Zehdoodeh wa Zehraee Bayna Jerusalem.”

    “His mouth is most sweet: yea, he is altogether lovely. This is my beloved, and this is my friend, O daughters
    of Jerusalem.”

    In the Hebrew language im is added for respect. Similarely im is added after the name of Prophet Muhammad
    (pbuh) to make it Muhammadim. In English translation they have even translated the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) as “altogether lovely”, but in the Old Testament in Hebrew, the name of Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is yet present.

    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in the New Testament:

    Al-Qur’an Chapter 61 Verse 6:

    “And remember, Jesus, the son of Mary, said, ‘O Children of Israel! I am the messenger of Allah (sent) to you, confirming the Law (which came) before me and giving glad tidings of a messenger to come after me, whose name shall be Ahmed.’ But when he came to them with clear signs, they said, ‘This is evident sorcery!’ ”

    All the prophecies mentioned in the Old Testament regarding Muhammad (pbuh) besides applying to the Jews also hold good for the Christians.

    1.
    John chapter 14 verse 16:
    “And I will pray the Father, and he shall give you another Comforter, that he may abide with you forever.”

    2.
    Gospel of John chapter 15 verse 26:

    “But when the Comforter is come, whom I will send unto you from the Father, even the Spirit of truth, which
    proceedeth from the Father, he shall testify of me.”

    3.
    Gospel of John chapter 16 verse 7:

    “Nevertheless I tell you the truth; it is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not
    come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you”.

    “Ahmed” or “Muhammad” meaning “the one who praises” or “the praised one” is almost the translation of the
    Greek word Periclytos. In the Gospel of John 14:16, 15:26, and 16:7. The word ‘Comforter’ is used in the English translation for the Greek word Paracletos which means advocate or a kind friend rather than a comforter.
    Paracletos is the warped reading for Periclytos. Jesus (pbuh) actually prophesised Ahmed by name. Even the
    Greek word Paraclete refers to the Prophet (pbuh) who is a mercy for all creatures.

    Some Christians say that the Comforter mentioned in these prophecies refers to the Holy Sprit. They fail to realise
    that the prophecy clearly says that only if Jesus (pbuh) departs will the Comforter come. The Bible states that the
    Holy Spirit was already present on earth before and during the time of Jesus (pbuh), in the womb of Elizabeth, and again when Jesus (pbuh) was being baptised, etc. Hence this prophecy refers to none other than Prophet
    Muhammad (pbuh).

    4.
    Gospel of John chapter 16 verse 12-14:

    “I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now. Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth is
    come, he will guide you unto all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. He shall glorify me”.

    The Sprit of Truth, spoken about in this prophecy referes to none other than Prophet Muhammad (pbuh)
    NOTE: All quotations of the Bible are taken from the King James Version.

  20. Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is mentioned in the Torah
    Are There Predictions of Muhammad in the Old Testament?
    Do we find Muhammad in the Old Testament? According to Suras 7 and 61 Muhammad is predicted in the Old Testament (Taurat). For a long time now, Muslims have tried desperately to find these predictions for their prophet in those scriptures which preceded the Qur’an (the Taurat, Zabuur and the Injil), but to no avail. It is ironic that Muslims are now compelled by their own scripture to establish the credibility of their prophet in the Old Testament.
    Muslims and Christians alike agree that Christ’s coming was predicted often in the Old Testament. Yet, if God had intended to send another prophet far greater than He, we should naturally find predictions concerning him there as well. None are to be found. Therefore, without a prediction the sole criteria for Muhammad’s authority rests entirely on the Qur’an. For obvious reasons this kind of circular argument is untenable.

    ——————————————————————————–

    Muslims Find Muhammad in the Old Testament
    Due to the situation which Muslims find themselves in, they have come forward with a series of passages from the Old Testament which they believe point to Muhammad. Outside the Deuteronomy 18 passage (dealt with separately in another study), all of these passages, which supposedly refer to a messenger, fall into four general categories:

    This person is someone who used the sword (Psalm 45:2-5; 149; Isaiah 63). However, when we read further, the context in these passages clearly points out that the sword-wielder is not only God, but the Creator, the Lord of Israel and the Lord of Hosts. Few Muslims would be willing to equate these titles with Muhammad.

    This person is someone whose lifestyle parallels that of Muhammad’s day (i.e. rides a camel, lives in a desert) (Isaiah 21:7 and 53). Yet the context again refers to both a messenger from Babylon, and a servant who was crushed, pierced, and wounded for others, hardly analogous to Muhammad’s life.

    This person is someone whose geographical location coincides with that of Muhammad (Deuteronomy 33:2; Isaiah 63; Habakkuk 3:3). Yet the Mount Paran which they claim to be in Mecca is instead on the Sinai Peninsula, while Bozrah is not Basrah, but modern-day Al-Busairah, situated in Edom, south of the Dead Sea.
    In Habbakuk 3:3 we read, “God comes from Teman.” Muslims maintain that Teman refers to Islam. To be consistent they must also adhere to the other prophecies concerning Teman. In Jeremiah 49:7 God questions whether there is any wisdom in Teman. Verse 20 says the people of Teman will be aghast at their fate. Ezekiel 25:13 promises that God will lay waste the people of Teman, and God will send fire and consume them (Amos 1:12) and there will be no survivors (Obadiah 8-10). This would imply the destruction of Islam! In reality, when we refer to the Biblical account we find that Teman is not Islam, but a town close to Jericho, in the territory of Edom.

    This person is someone whose name has a common root to that of Muhammad (Genesis 49:8-10=Judah; Song of Solomon 5:16=Ahmad; Haggai 2:7=Hemdah). This last category needs further discussion as it is adhered to more resolutely as real proof for a prediction than the others.

    ——————————————————————————–

    Names which point to Muhammad
    Muslims believe that all three of these passages use names which can be translated as “praise” (Judah, Ahmad, and Hemdah), and are semantically similar to “Muhammad,” which means “the praised one.” However, in Arabic the verb Hamada (“to praise”) is the root for many words, yet one does not find Muslims substituting “Muhammad” and “Hamada” interchangeably.
    Take for instance the very first Sura of the Qur’an. In the second aya (verse) we find, “Praise (al-hamadi) be to Allah.” Do we dare change this to Muhammad? Of course not! That is sacrilege! In Haggai 2:7 Muslims believe Hemdah (“the desire of nations”) comes from the same root as the word “Muhammad.” Yet they must certainly cringe when this word is again used in Daniel 11:37 to refer to a person “desired by women” who is a false god of the heathen.

    ——————————————————————————–

    Song of Solomon 5:16
    But perhaps the best example to illustrate the difficulty in exchanging one word for another is found in the Song of Solomon, chapter 5, verse 16. In this passage Muslims claim that the Hebrew word machmad (“altogether lovely”) can be translated “praise” or “Ahmad.” Following is the text of the passage as translated in the Bible (NIV):

    Song of Solomon 5:16: “His mouth is sweetness itself; he is altogether lovely. This is my lover, this my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.”
    Song of Solomon is a poetic love story between the Beloved and her Lover. It is a piece that explores the beauty of a marriage relationship between a king and his wife.

    Muslims believe that the adjectival clause “altogether lovely” can be changed to a proper noun, “Muhammad.” The text, they state, should then read, when translated into English:

    “His mouth is sweetness itself; he is Muhammad. This is my lover, this my friend, O daughters of Jerusalem.”
    This rendering, however, begs a number of difficult questions according to the context of the entire book.

    Who are the daughters of Jerusalem? Did Muhammad ever court one of his many wives in Jerusalem?

    If this is Muhammad, which of his wives is speaking? Was Muhammad ever married to a dark woman he wooed from Lebanon?

    Did Muhammad ever claim kingship?

    What, then, is this prophecy saying? The stressed words in the text above are the English renderings of the Hebrew word, machmad. Strong’s concordance defines machmad as: desire, desirable thing, a pleasant thing.
    So, can machmad signify Muhammad? Wise men allow that when one verse is in doubt it is justified to explain one passage of the Bible by another. The word machmad appears another twelve times in the Old Testament. Since Muslims are so intent on finding the Arabic name of Muhammad in the Hebrew word machmad, it is important that they remain consistent. Therefore, we have printed three of the twelve prophetic verses below and leave it to you to ascertain whether they fit. (Note: we have been consistent in now translating this word as the long-neglected “proper noun” which Muslims claim it to be.)

    1 Kings 20:6
    “Yet I will send my servants to thee tomorrow about this time, and they shall search thy house, and the houses of thy servants; and it shall be, [that] whatever is Muhammad in thy eyes, they shall take [it] in their hand, and carry [it] away.”

    Lamentations 1:11
    “All her people sigh, they seek bread; they have given their Muhammad things for food to relieve the soul: see, O LORD, and consider; for I am become vile.”

    Ezekiel 24:21
    “Speak to the house of Israel, Thus saith the Lord GOD; Behold, I will profane my sanctuary, the excellence of your strength, the Muhammad of your eyes, and that which your soul pitieth; and your sons and your daughters whom ye have left shall fall by the sword.”
    If this mutilation of Scripture seems to you ridiculous, it is meant to be as it shows the quality of the theory behind such an idea. But don’t just take our word for it. Look up the other nine references which employ machmad and see for yourself whether Muhammad would fit. They are: 2 Chronicles 36:19, Isaiah 64:11, Lamentations 1:10, Lamentations 2:4, Ezekiel 24:16, Ezekiel 24:25, Hosea 9:6, Hosea 9:16 and Joel 3:5.

    When taken to its logical conclusion it makes a mockery of Hebrew grammar. Why should an adjectival clause be translated a proper noun? Machmad already has a proper noun counterpart, ‘Chemdan’ (or ‘Hemdan’, the eldest son of Dishon of Anah the Horite). If machmad should have been written as a proper noun the author would have written Chemdan.

    ——————————————————————————–

    The Problem with this Exercise
    This claim is similar to the issue of the paraclete in the book of John, which Muslims contend is a prophecy of Muhammad. Yet this prophecy in John 14 and 16 refers to the Spirit of God. We find it peculiar that Muslims will, in one text, base their claim on the meaning of one word at the expense of its pronunciation (paracletos versus periclytos) and yet with another text base their claim on the pronunciation of a single word at the expense of its meaning (desire versus praise)!
    If these techniques of hermeneutics are justifiable, then wouldn’t it be quite in line to expect to find a substitute for the word paracletos a prophet named “Perry Clinton,” whose name really means “the desired one?” Absurd? Yes! That is the point. Using this technique one can conjure up a prophecy for nearly any prophet one happens to fancy.

    Conversely, a Hindu could claim that in Sura 30:1, the word al-rum (for Romans), which can be written Ram, must be referring to the Hindu deity Rama.

    A further irony in this whole exercise is that Muhammad is not even his original name. According to Muslim tradition, in his youth Muhammad was called Amin, a common Arab name meaning “faithful, or trustworthy.” Amin was his given name, a masculine form from the same root as his mother’s name “Amina.”

    ——————————————————————————–

    Conclusion
    We understand the desire by Muslims to find any prophecy which will give credence to Muhammad, for without it Muhammad has no outside evidence to authenticate his prophethood. That then leaves the authority for the beliefs of over one billion Muslims hanging on the single testimony of just one finite man. We ask, however, that Muslims not twist or attack the Scriptures in order to gain their own agenda. We are constantly amazed that Muslims should be at once both critics and stewards of the Holy Scriptures of Christians and Jews. It would be better to be of one mind.
    If Muslims firmly believe the Scriptures are inadequate then they should behave accordingly and abstain from picking and choosing what they like from what they deem a hopelessly inadequate book. We will not insult them for bravely allying with other enemies of the Bible.

    But it is hypocrisy to use data from a book they claim is crude and inferior to support an already illogical argument.

    If you believe the Scriptures and desire to find prophecies then please come, read them all and learn. Truly submit yourselves, as genuine believers do, to the authoritative and COMPLETE teachings of Scripture as they have been diligently preserved throughout the ages.

  21. Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) in Hindu Scriptures

    I
    Muhammad (pbuh) prophesised in Bhavishya Purana

    According to Bhavishya Purana in the Prati Sarag Parv III Khand 3 Adhay 3 Shloka 5 to 8.
    “A malecha (belonging to a foreign country and speaking a foreign language) spiritual teacher will appear with his companions. His name will be Mohammad. Raja (Bhoj) after giving this Maha Dev Arab (of angelic disposition) a bath in the Panchgavya and the Ganga water (i.e. purifying him of all sins) offered him the present of his sincere devotion and showing him all reverence said, “I make obeisance to thee. O ye! The pride of mankind, the dweller in Arabia, Ye have collected a great force to kill the Devil and you yourself have been protected from the malecha opponents.”

    The Prophecy clearly states:

    The name of the Prophet as Mohammad.

    He will belong to Arabia. The Sanskrit word Marusthal means a sandy track of land or a desert.

    Special mention is made of the companions of the Prophet, i.e. the Sahabas. No other Prophet had as many companions as Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).

    He is referred as the pride of mankind (Parbatis nath). The Glorious Qur’an reconfirms this

    “And thou (standest) on an exalted standard of character”
    [Al-Qur’an 68:4]|

    “Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah, a beautiful pattern (of conduct)”.
    [Al-Qur’an 33:21]

    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 has prophesised:

    “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 people.

    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 for prayer’.

    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 people.

    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 a witness”.

    II

    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) Prophesised in Atharvaveda

    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:

    Mantra 1
    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.

    Mantra 2
    He is a camel-riding Rishi, whose chariot touches the heaven.

    Mantra 3
    He is Mamah Rishi who is given a hundred gold coins, ten chaplets (necklaces), three hundred good steeds and ten thousand cows.

    Mantra 4
    Vachyesv rebh. ‘Oh! ye who glorifies’.

    The Sanskrit word Narashansah means ‘the praised one’, which is the literal translation of the Arabic word Muhammad (pbuh).

    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 in Madinah.

    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.”
    [Al-Qur’an 48:29]

    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 (pbuh).

    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 obedience.”
    [Al-Qur’an 33:22]

    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 fight.

    The enemies’ defeat in the conquest of Makkah is mentioned in Atharvaveda book 20 Hymn 21 verse no 9:

    “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 the Samveda

    Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) is also prophesised in the Samveda Book II Hymn 6 verse 8:

    “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 28

    “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.”
    [Al-Qur’an 34:28]

    Of course, what the religious spammers above miss is that we’ve been exposed to Islam. I live in the middle of one of the largest Muslim communities in my city (which isn’t small). I own a copy of the Koran. None of it is going to make me convert to Islam. It’s just not any more convincing–or holy or immune from questioning or mockery–than any other religion.

    Thee Shall see, what thee has done on thee day of Judgement, one of the allegations these ‘people’ made about the Qur’aan is that this Book is an old book, surely a book this old could not live to today’s technology?
    Let us look at how old the Qur’aan is exactly, 1,400 years old. When England was in its Dark ages and they all agreed that the earth is flat, anyone who disagreed was killed, the Qur’aan 1400 years ago mentions that the earth is like an ostriches egg. Science has just discovered that the earth is expanding all the time, The Qur’aan mentioned this 1,400 years ago. Go ahead mock thee prophet Salallah Hu Alay Hi Wa Salam. Whoever is reading this should know, we will surely meet on thee day of judgement.
    Assalamu Alaykum Wa Roh Mat’ Ullah Barakah Tuh.
    Muhammad Arqum.
    Yours sincerely.

    This is just a comparison of Jesus and Muhammad. It easily shows you how Muhammad was nothing but a man who lived a sinful life and Jesus is God in flesh who died on the cross for our sins and rose 3 days later. The Quran adamantly denies this.

    1. Jesus: is God. (John 1, Col. 1) Jesus forgave sins and dispelled demons in His own name. He said “I and the Father are one”.

    Muhammad: admitted he is only a man (Surah 18:110)

    2. Jesus: raised Himself from the dead (Matthew 28:6) and rose into heaven in front of many witnesses.

    Muhammad: remains dead

    3. Jesus: His Birth, Life, Death, Resurrection was foretold by numerous prophets.

    Muhammad: nothing predicted about Muhammad. The “Comforter” was the Holy Spirit Jesus promised the apostles.

    4. Jesus: lived a sinless life

    Muhammad: Allah himself refers to Muhammad as sinful (Surah 40:55, 48:1-2).

    5. Jesus: did numerous miracles to prove His divinity, including raising the dead and command over nature (All Gospel writers and Josephus). While teaching his apostles Jesus said; “Believe me when I say that I am in the Father and the Father is in me; or at least believe on the evidence of the miracles themselves” (John 14:11 and Matthew 9:2-7)

    Muhammad: on two occasions in the Qur’an Muhammad admitted he could do no miracles to show any sort of divinity or divine calling (Surah 17:90-95; 3:183, also see: 29:50-51)

    6. Jesus: cared for His enemies (Matthew 5:43-44). Jesus promised to save those who believe and trust in Him.

    Muhammad: killed his enemies and anyone who disagreed with him (Surah 9:5)

    7. Jesus: Held a high view of marriage and hated divorce – as God the Father does (Matthew 19:7-8).

    Muhammad: commanded his adopted son to divorce his wife so that she would become his (Surah 33:36-38)

    8. Jesus: accurately prophesied many verifiable events that took place after His time (Matthew 24).

    Muhammad: delivered only one -questionable- guess/prophecy about the Romans winning a future battle. No date or place given. (Surah 30:1-4)

    9. Jesus: Jesus gave his disciples authority to drive out evil spirits and to heal every disease and sickness (Matthew 10:1; Mark 6:12-13)

    Muhammad: gave his followers the authority to wage war on unbelievers. Is Allah’s apostle. Those who follow him are ruthless to unbelievers. (Surah 48:29)

    10. Jesus: told his disciples not to ask for money, and not to carry money with them. (Matthew 10:8-9, Luke 10:7)

    Muhammad: instructed his followers on how to divide booty they seized from unbelievers. He insisted on 20% for himself.

    11. Jesus: said to his followers that if anyone will not welcome you, shake the dust off your feet when you leave that home or town. (Matthew 10:14-15, 23)

    Muhammad: ordered Muslims to attack any city that rejected Islam.

    12. Jesus: told his followers to get ready, because unbelievers would flog them, arrest them, and put them on trial (Matthew 10:16-19)

    Muhammad: told his followers to fight (militarily) hard against unbelievers. “Kill the Mushrikun (unbelievers) wherever you find them, and capture them and besiege them, and lie in wait for them in each and every ambush…” Surah 9:5. Also see Surah 9:29.

    13. Jesus: washed his disciples’ feet. He riseth from supper, and laid aside his garments; and took a towel, and girded himself. After that he poureth water into a bason, and began to wash the disciples’ feet, and to wipe them with the towel wherewith he was girded. John 13:4-5, 12-17

    Muhammad: One day after battle, Muhammad came back home and said to his daughter Fatima, “Wash the blood from this sword and I swear in the name of Allah this sword was obeying me all the time.” Muhammad then took the swords of his friend Ali ibn Abu Talib and washed them for him.

    14. Jesus: never took up a sword or encouraged anyone else to do so. Once a close follower took it upon himself to take up a sword. Jesus soundly reprimanded him. Jesus warned; “all who take the sword will perish by the sword” (Matthew 26:52)

    Muhammad: According to Muslim scholar Pickthal, “the number of campaigns (military) he (Muhammad) led in person during the last ten years of his life is twenty-seven, in nine of which there was hard fighting. The number of expeditions which he planned and sent out under other leaders is thirty-eight”

    15. Jesus: said: “But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you; That ye may be the children of your Father which is in heaven: for he maketh his sun to rise on the evil and on the good, and sendeth rain on the just and on the unjust. For if ye love them which love you, what reward have ye? do not even the publicans the same? (Matthew 5:44-46)

    Muhammad: Surah 9:29: PICKTHAL: “Fight against such of those who have been given the Scripture (Christians & Jews) as believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, and forbid not that which Allah hath forbidden by His messenger, and follow not the Religion of Truth, until they pay the tribute readily, being brought low.”

    16. Jesus: last message to his followers about himself and his mission: Thus it is written, and thus it behoved Christ to suffer, and to rise from the dead the third day: And that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in his name among all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. Luke 24:46-47

    Muhammad: last speech to his followers on Mt Arafat: “I descended by Allah with the sword in my hand, and my wealth will come from the shadow of my sword. And the one who will disagree with me will be humiliated and persecuted.”

    I also want to mention that Islam claims to be a religion of the people of “The Book”, or Ahel al-Kitab, which would have one believe it (Islam) is a continuance of that Book God revealed to His Jewish Prophets. If it were, it would not deny what is in that “Book”, especially after confirming the authority of the Jewish Torah and Christian Gospels. If Islam was true, Muslims would know the name of the true God is not Allah, but Yahweh.

    Allah was the name of an old pagan tribal “moon god” in the Arabian Peninsula. If you ask, “But what about the Arabian Peninsula, where Mohammed (570-632) launched Islam?” During the last two centuries, prominent archaeologists have unearthed thousands of inscriptions which prove beyond any doubt that the dominant religion of Arabia during Mohammed’s day was the cult of the moon-god whose name is Allah. This alone PROVES that Islam is a cult, NOT a religion.

    Another thing I would like to mention… Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, practiced his faith in many ways that contradicted the Quran. The Quran said that Muhammad was sent to show the mercy of God to the world (When I say the world, I mean the ENTIRE world, not just Muslims). But he became a military dictator, attacking, killing and taking plunder to finance his empire. How is that showing mercy? HOW? I’m confused… Allah, the god revealed in the Quran, is not a loving father. It says that he desires to lead people astray (Surah 6:39, 126; 43:36-37). He does not help those who are led astray by him (Surah 30:29) and desires to use them to populate hell (Surah 32:13)”. So, the Qur’an says that the god of Islam works with Satan and demons to lead people astray.

    So my question to everyone is: Would you follow this Allah who desires to lead people astray and to use them to populate hell? I wouldn’t.

    While on the subject of religious hatred …

    Aren’t you the same people who are advocating that HAMAS affiliated Islamic man build his muslim center near ground zero and then bash normal people for not liking it? Hypocrites, you are.

    Let me make comparison as to what you people are getting yourself into.

    You bash christians for what we believe. For the most most of us will either ignore you or make fun of you or just annoy you.

    When you start getting into bashing muslims you face kidnapping, torture, roadside bombs, a knife in your thorat, a bullet in your head, your wife’s face slashed to pieced, your house burned, your car exploding with you in it, your brake lines cut, muslims outside your door burning your pictures and making that funny noise with their tongue while chanting “death to atheists” and firing their AK-47s into your house.

    That’s the difference. We mean you no real harm. They will kill you. Be care what you are getting into. Your cute little tirades may be funny in a college classroom full of dorky misfit communists, but in the real world that shit will get you killed.

    I don’t fear the Islamofascists becuase I mean them no harm. I have more in common with them than you do. You, on the other hand, are making very heavy footsteps on extremely thin ice (not caused by global warming hoax).

    Just so you know, Islamofascists will hunt you people down for your blasphemy. Right now you may be supporting those fascists gainst our troops like the drugged up freakshow hippy commies did in the Vietnam era, but mark my words, these people will come after you if you turn on them like you are doing.

    While thye come after you though, I will sit back and enjoy the show. It will be nice to know someone stood up for religion for once. I foresee Islam and Christianity one day joining forces against the secularites and commies. Until then, have fun cowering in your closet full of illegal pot.

    By the way, I wonder what the Islamofascists are saying about the new store we have in America, The Homo Depot.

    Remember to boycott the anti-family, anti-Christmas Homo Depot. Also remember when referring to the Home Depot to always call it the Homo Depot until they change their anti-family policy. Boycott the Homo Depot
