Muhammad is not predicted in Hindu scriptures

Zakir Naik and Abdul Haque Vidyarthi Refuted

by S. Prasadh
29 December, 2005
Purpose Of Article
Recently, it has become a fad for all Islamic websites to publish Dr.Zakir Naik's( An Islamic
Propagator from India ) and Dr.Abdul Haque Vidyarthi's article on Muhammad foretold in
Hinduism. It is a well know fact that the same websites insult HINDU scriptures, their idols,
their ideology and criticize them vulgarly. But their desperation leads them to cherry pick some
verses from Hindu scriptures and decipher them in their own terminology and claim that many
mantras point to MUHAMMAD. Let us take some of the alleged prophesies of Muhammad in
Vedas. Any internet search engine containing the worlds Muhammad and Hindu returns a large
number of results on this theme. A number of textual proofs are given in support of this claim.
While this comforts the faithful, let us analyze these proofs rationally and see whether the claim
holds up under the clear light of reason, not fogged by religious sentimentality. However, I must
confess that I have been unable to get hold of the book written by Dr. Vidyarthi, and therefore I
am refuting the material available on the this page , a clear material about claims of Dr.Zakir
Naik has been presented in his home site . I shall be arguing on the premises of 5 aspects of such
claims. At the end of this article, you shall infer the truth about these Islamic propagandists.
The Rebuttal
1. The first premise is based on the Qur'anic belief that There Never Was A People Without A
Qur'an 35:24, Qur'an 16:36, Qur'an 4:164, Qur'an 3:81-82 all declare that Allah had sent
messengers or apostles before to various nations of the earth telling them to worship Allah and
accept the apostles as His messenger. To the Muslims these verses mean that every religion had
its prophets of whom Muhammad is the last and final. From this they deduce that scriptures of
other religions must contain mention of Muhammad. To a Muslim there is no proof needed but
the Koran; but for unbelievers the Koran by itself is no proof. Satisfactory proof is yet to be
given that Allah exists or that the Koran is God's Revelation. Nor does it automatically follow
that Mohammed's arrival would be predicted anywhere. FFI contains many articles that actually
questions and sometimes disproves the credibility of both.
2. The next argument is based on linguistics :
I have already given sufficient substantiation on how linguistics play an important role in
interpreting other scriptures related to the Qur'an in my previous article titled Quran And Royal
Plural .
The writers seem to indicate that Sanskrit has been borrowed from Arabic. They have found this
by an analysis of the Vedas. However, when we come to the actual words given as examples, the
ground is too shaky to withstand scrutiny.
(a) Brahma, the Creator in the Hindu Trinity, is declared to be actually Abraham. The
initial letter A in Abraham has apparently been moved to the end making it Brahma. We are told
"This analysis is accurate when one writes the two words in Arabic script, a language close to
that spoken by Prophet Abraham". This immediately raises the problem of what language
Abraham actually spoke and also that "a language close to that spoken" is not the same thing as
the actual language. Also since the analysis is based on only phonetic similarity and on changing
the position of the alphabets, the Hindus can with equal justice claim that Ramadan/Ramazan is
actually a corruption of 'Ramanavami'.
Not only that, let us take a look at the linguistic root of Brahma. The term Brah comes from the
root Bri which means "to worship, to select, to surround". When an h is added to Bri it becomes
Briha meaning to "increase, to grow". By addition of 'an', we have the word Brahman who in
Hinduism is the Supreme God. Brahman thus is the original word. Brahman is without form,
without gender and cannot be plural. The cosmos came into being by its will alone. When
Brahman is imagined as a masculine being engaged in the act of creation, then it is called
Brahma. When Brahman is imagined as a feminine being, who is the source of energy without
which the act of creation cannot take place, then it is called Brahmani. Brahma thus has nothing
to do with Abraham (incidentally we can also claim that Abraham comes from Brahma), but
comes from Brahman and is clearly the God of creation/the creative aspect of God and not a
(b) "Similarly, Abraham's first wife Sarah is mentioned in the Vedas as Saraswati" . This
again depends on mere phonetic similarity. Unfortunately, when we study the Rigvedic verses we
see that Saraswati was actually a river. There is great dispute as to where this river was, but there
is no doubt that it is a river. Rigveda again and again declares it to be a river with descriptions of
flowing down from the mountains into the sea and it is worshipped as a river-goddess. Later on,
somehow or other she became the goddess of learning as well. It was only in the Middle Ages
that she became the consort of Brahma. In the Vedas, she is definitely not Brahma's wife. Unless
one is willing to grant that the Sara of the Bible was originally a river, one cannot see any
connection between the two.
( c ) "Noah or Nuh is mentioned as Manuh or Manu." The only similarity between the two
characters lies in their stories. Like Noah Manu too was saved by God during the Flood. But this
proves nothing except that there was perhaps a worldwide flood. Moreover, the rest of the story
simply do not match: Manu had no ark (only a boat towed by God in the form of a fish) and
definitely no kind of animals with him to repopulate the world. Not only that, Manu is a generic
name for 14 sovereigns of the world in the myths and there is a female Manu as well who is the
Mother of mankind (Manava > children of Manu (fem.) )
(d ) Similarly, it is argued that 'Maleccha' (unclean ones) come from Hebrew word "Ma-
Hekha which means 'thy brethren'. (e.g., And he (Ishmael) shall dwell in the presence of all
his brethren. Genesis 16:12; i.e., Ismaelites are the brethren of the Israelites). This word
therefore means a descendant of Ishmael, and it is well known that Muhammad (s) is a
descendant of Prophet Ismail through his second son Kedar. Those who can read Arabic Script
can easily see that a mistake in separating Ma from Hekha will produce a single word
'Malhekha,' and when adapted in another tongue like Sanskrit might sound like Malechha".
Again this relies on the belief that ancient Hindus knew Hebrew and had read the version of the
Bible, as we find it today. Linguistically, the term comes from 'mlech', meaning to speak
indistinctly, barbarously. So 'mlechha' came to mean those who could not speak the Vedic
language, those who are outside Hindu society. The term is definitely ancient since it is found in
3. The third argument draws heavily from what is known as Bhavishya Purana or Book of
Prophecies. Prati Sarg Parv III: 3, 3, verses 5-27 give detailed descriptions of Mohammed's
doings, the establishment of the new religion and even gets the Prophet's name right. So we
immediately come to the question of how authentic this book is. According to most scholars, this
book is a work of compilation that went on through centuries, with the writers pretending to pass
off historical knowledge as prophecies of the future. The writer argues, "A case has been made
that the present Puranas are not the same collection that Vedas refer to and the real books were
lost". I would be very astonished if any Hindu had actually made such a claim, because it is
common knowledge that Puranas were written after the Vedas and the Vedas never mention
any Purnanas . However this allows Mr. Haq and Dr.Naik to set up an useful non-existent
strawman for them to demolish. He also argues that materials could not have been added in later
dates because Puranas were read in public and so could not have been altered. However, only the
more popular stories from the 18 Puranas were read in assemblies and Bhavishya Purana is a text
that was seldom read out in public. Even if we accept the book as authentic, two questions arise.
One is, why does the book contain prophecies only till Victoria 's reign? Why did God
suddenly decide to suspend his revelations at that particular moment? Surely it would have
been more proper to continue it (even through Muslim holy men) or to end all such prophecies
with the emergence of Islam and the 'perfect' Book of Qur'an which was to replace all others.
Secondly, the Purana is filled with stories of the doings of various gods and concludes that the
only god who is worthy of worship is the Surya, the sun-god. If the book is authentic then all
such stories are also true and therefore it is the sun we must worship. However, most Muslims
have not read the whole book; those who have, argue that all such portions are corruptions. But
Hindus can too use such pick-and-choose methods by declaring that it is the portions relating to
Islam which are degenerations. The Bhavishya Purana is precisely described as :
"Bhavishya Purana. This is what is told to Manu by Surya (Sun). This contains statements
about future events. The book praises the worship of Surya (Sun), Agni (fire) and Naga
(serpent). There is an annexure dealing with the several holy places of Bharata and the
rights of pilgrims. The book contains fourteen thousand verses and it is considered to be
uttama (best) to give this book along with treacle as a gift to a brahmin on the full-moon
day in the month of Pausha"
Bhavishya purana also is allegedly claiming that JESUS has come to INDIA . You can find such
an argument here. If muslims believe Bhavishya Purana predicts Muhammad, then why don't
they believe Jesus came to INDIA and learnt tricks from Siddhas? Bhavishya Purana also praises
worship of Surya, Agni and Naga. Muslims will pray any of these? When they never will
approbate any of these, how come they only believe that some unrelated verses point to
Muhammad? Can you see the desperation among these two men?

4. Prophecy in Vedas:
(The Vedas are the oldest scriptures of Hinduism. They date back to around 4000BC
approximately or even older. They are written in an archaic language, so ancient that when
Sanskrit as a language was codified ordinary people had already started forgetting the meanings
of the verses. The great pundits of the time therefore started to write commentaries and grammar
books on them. Even today, it is not possible to translate the verses without these texts. However
today's scholars also have the help of comparing them with other languages.)
Dr.Zakir Naik and Dr.Haq declare that Atharva Veda , Kanda (chapter) 20, Mantras 126-137
prefigures about Muhammad . This portion is known as Kuntap sukta. He says that the word
Kuntap means to consume sin and misery , and it is composed from Kuh (sin and misery) and tap
(to consume). This is not wholly correct. The Gopatha Brahman defines the term as "that which
burns away whatever is evil or ugly". However the meaning is close enough. But he goes onto
say that the word Kuntap also means "the 'hidden glands in the abdomen,' inferring the true
meaning to be revealed only to those who are able to develop sufficient insight". It is a pity that
he does not give his source for this meaning. But apparently he has developed sufficient insight
to read its hidden meaning: that this meaning proves it is actually a reference to Mecca which is
called navel of the earth by Muslims. Then Dr.Naik and Dr. Haq "shows that the word "Kuntap is
derived from Bakkah (Makkah). In the analysis of Sanskrit and Arabic words having the same
meaning - , the word 'b' in Arabic is used as 'p' in Sanskrit (in our times, one example is that of
soft drink Pepsi; it is written and pronounced as Bebsi in the Arab world). A certain 't' in Arabic
becomes silent and pronounced as h depending on its position in that word - For example, 'tun' in
Medinatun is replaced by h when pronounced (both t and n are dropped). Further, many Sanskrit
words having parallel in Arabic are written backwards - Thus one can see the similarity between
the word Kuntap and Bakkah (each containing letters k, n, t, p)".
This once again is absolutely childish, on the same level as Brahma and Abraham. "Kuyang ang
nam kutsitang bhavati taddopatti , tasmat [from there] Kuntap" --- the letters k, u, n, t, a, p all
come from the Sanskrit words in the definition. (I have used Roman alphabets for the ordinary
reader, though the pronunciation is not absolutely accurately transcribed thereby). Also, another
term for the Kuntap sukt is left out. It is also called 'Khila-parva' meaning supplement; these
verses are taken mostly from the Rig-Veda and are not considered to be of any great importance.
Indeed many translations skip this chapter altogether, which no doubt Dr.Naik and Dr. Vidyarthi
felt can only help their cause.
(Just to muddy the waters further, a Hindu has argued that the word Mecca comes from the
Sanskrit root Makh or Yajna; the name Mohammad is a derivative of Krishna's another
name, Madan Mohan and the word Aab (water) comes from the pure Sanskrit word Aap
meaning water. We have exactly the same type of argument here that Vidyarthi/Haq gives,
except that it is turned upside down: but the latter is equally valid in its methodology as the
former. In fact since no analysis is given that can expose its weaknesses, -- only an assertion is
made --- the Hindu claim appears more valid!).
The writers say that the third Mantra of the Kuntap Sukt translated by someone called Pandit
Raja Ram is:
"He gave the Mamah Rishi a hundred gold coins, ten chaplets, three hundred steeds and ten
thousand cows."
They go onto explain " The root of the word Mamah is Mah which means to esteem highly,
honor, revere, to magnify and to exalt. The word "Mohammad" means "the praised one" in
Arabic. Therefore, Mamah is synonymous with Mohammad when the full meaning of the verse
is considered. The 'd' dropped as in the case of Mamah (Mohammad, which is derived from root
letters h, m, and d)". It is a very ingenious explanation. Alas! the only problem is that Mamah is
not a single word nor a name. It is a combination of two words 'mamo' and 'ahe', meaning "to
Then Dr.Naik and Dr.Haq go on to explain the 'hidden' (!) symbolism in the line. The hundred
gold coins apparently refer to the early companions of Prophet Muhammad,. The ten chaplets
refer to ten companions of Prophet Muhammad, who were given the good news of Paradise by
the Prophet. Three Hundred Good Steeds (horses of Arab Breed) refers to those companions of
Prophet Muhammad who fought at 'Badr.' We are told that though their actual number was 313,
in many prophecies the numbers are usually rounded up. Ten Thousand Cows refer to ten
thousand companions who accompanied the Prophet when he conquered Mecca . The
interpretation is based on a hadith in Sahih Al-Bukhari, Vol. 9, number 159 , where
Muhammad narrates a dream where cows symbolize the believers. Is there any other evidence to
suggest that the hymn is a symbol of anything, far less of the meaning the writers finds? There is
not. Also both of them reveal their shoddy Vedic scholarship when they declare "The Sanskrit
word Arvah means a swift Arab horse particularly used by Asuras (non-Aryans)". In the Vedas
the Asuras are not non-Aryans; gods like Indra and Varuna are addressed as 'Asur' which simply
means 'lord'. It was far later that Asuras came to symbolize demons
They then give their version of the mantras 1 through 13 of the Kuntap Sukt which according to
them is amassed from some Hindu Pundits. However the work of Griffith and Whitney are
usually considered sufficient :
1. Listen to this O people! a praiseworthy shall be praised. O Kaurama we have received
among the Rushamas sixty thousand and ninety. [population of Makkah at the time of
Prophet's triumphant entry in Makkah].
The Rusama is mentioned in RigVeda as a protege of Indra, and is elsewhere referred to as a
community which has nothing to do with Mecca . Kaurama is the alternative name for Kaurava,
a generous donor in the community.
2. Twenty camels draw his carriage, with him being also his wives. The top of that carriage
or chariot bows down escaping from touching the heaven.
The accepted wording Whose twice ten buffaloes move right along, together with their cows;
the height of his chariot just misses the heaven which recedes from its touch. You can find
an accurate and famous translation of Vedas here . I have never heard of camels being used by
INDIANS in Vedic Times, nor can you make notice of camels in any of Hindu Scriptures.
3. He gave the Mamah Rishi a hundred gold coins, ten chaplets, three hundred steeds and
ten thousand cows.
As noted earlier it is not the Mamah rishi, but simply rishi.
4. 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. [The Prophet's state when he received revelation through Archangel Jibril
Again, the standard translation is "Glut thee o singer, glut thee, like a bird on a ripefruited
tree".However, the term 'narasansha' which is translated as singer, can also mean someone who
praises. Someone who praises is not praiseworthy. Narasansha doesn't equate to Muhammad.
Apparently this version is relied on, so that it can be equated with Ahmad.
5. The praying ones with their prayers hurry on like powerful bulls. Only their children are
at home, and at home do they wait for the cows. [Cows refers to companions of the
Prophet. Prophet's companions strict adherence to five daily prayers at appointed times.
Refers to Battles of Badr, Uhud, and Ahzab (Ditch or Allies)].
The actual translation is "The chanters with their pious song hurry on blithely as cows; at home
are their children, and at home the cows do they attend".
6. O you who praises (the Lord), hold fast the wisdom, which earns cows and good things.
Disseminate this among the divines, just as an archer places his shaft on the right point.
[wisdom of the Qur'an].
Again, here the standard translation is "O singer bring thou forth the hymns..." . They say this
verse in wisdom of Qur'an. Now if that is the case, Vedas were written several years before the
OT,NT and Qur'an. Then why don't muslims read Vedas instead? Look how the translation has
been played with and changed to their convenience.
7. Sing the high praise of the king of the world or the Light of the Universe, who is a god
and the best among men. He is a guide to all people and gives shelter to everyone. [Prophet
Mohammed's qualities].
The standard translation is, "Sing the praise of Pariksit , the sovereign whom all people love, the
king who ruleth over all, excelling mortals as a god". The name Parikshit is definitely mentioned.
Parikshit is the name of a king of the Kaurava line, though it cannot be ascertained whether this
is the same king mentioned in Mahabharata. However, this name is left out. Apparently even the
writer's imagination has a hard time trying to prove that Parikshit is another name for
8. He who affords shelter to everybody, gave peace to the world, as soon as he mounted the
throne. Men in Kuru-land are talking of his peace-making at the time of the building of the
house. [Kuru means one who protects a house in Hebrew and Kore means a house. It refers
to the first house of worship, the Ka'bah. In this sense, Kuru-land means the land of
Koreish . This Mantra refers to the rebuilding of the Kabah five years before Mohammed's
prophethood and his role in peace-making when each tribe of the Koreish (Quraish)
wanted the sole honor to put the Black Stone at its right place and disputed to the point of
threats to fight each other. The Black Stone is a celestial material and is the only remaining
part of the original building material of the Ka'bah].
Standard translation: "Mounting his throne Parikshit best of all hath given us peace and rest,
saith a Kaurava to his wife as he is ordering his house". A Kaurava is a member of the Kuru clan,
descended from Kuru, whatever may be its meaning in Hebrew. Also why are the specific terms
husband (pati) and wife (jaya) left out? I am sure the writer could have found some hidden
significance in them as well, if only he had worked hard.
9. In the realm of the King, who gives peace and protection to all, a wife asks her husband
whether she should set before him curd or some other liquor. [Due to Prophet's protection
and commandments, women could travel freely long distances without any escort or fear].
Really? Do you see any correlation between the words in the actual verses and the meaning these
two muslims try to give it? Above all, liqour is mentioned. I have never heard of any men
drinking liqour when Muhammad lived, as he prohibited liqour.
10. The ripe barley springs up from the cleft and rises towards heavens. The people prosper
in the reign of the king who gives protection to all. [people rise from the depth of
degradation to the height of glory].
From what degradation did Muhammad lift up the arabs? He said sex outside marriage is bad.
Well, that was indeed older in INDIA ! Everyone followed it and believed it and forbid pre-
marital sex. Instead Muhammad set a great example(not exception because muslims repeat it) by
marrying a kid. Is that degrading or glorifying?
11. Indra awoke the singer of his praises and asked him to go to the people in every
direction. He was asked to glorify Indra, the mighty and all pious men would appreciate his
effort and God would bestow on him His rewards. [The Prophet sent letters to several kings
and rulers in every direction inviting them to Islam].
What do Mr.Naik/ Mr.Haq want to tell? They tell Indra = Allah!!!In Hinduism Indra is god of
weather and war , and Lord of Heaven or Swargaloka He was also an important figure in non-
Hindu traditions. Mythology is that, Indra is also cursed by the supreme power. The supreme
power is the only GOD, and INDRA is supposedly a Demi-God. Refer here : . Well, there is mythology that Indra
rode on chariots. Does Allah drive a chariot or BMW?? How ridiculous!Only someone very
determined to prove his thesis can find that these verses refer to Islamic history.
12. Cows, horses and men multiply and increase here, because here rules the one who is
bountiful and splendidly generous who gives thousands in charity and sacrifice. [qualities
of the Last Prophet].
Here another reference to a demi god is left out : "Here, O cattle, ye shall be born, here, ye
horses, here, ye domestics! And Pshan also, who bestows a thousand (cows) as sacrificial reward,
settles down here.". Pushan means Muhammad? No way! Pushan is again a demi-God.
13. O Indra, let these cows be safe, and let not their master be harmed. And let not an
enemy, O Indra, or a robber overpower them. [Indra refers to God and cows to saintly
followers of the Prophet].
The so-called schollars(for dollars??) is not quiet upto the latest researches done by his other
Muslim colleagues. They are assiduously writing that Indra as the god of war and leader of
Aryans, is the cruel enslaver of the indigenous inhabitants of India and is the first terrorist in the
world. They very much contradict each other in their own terms!
As can be seen the writer very carefully leaves out certain words and gives others another
meaning than commonly associated with them. However, even that is not enough to turn
the verses into predictions about Muhammad. Read in the ordinary manner the verses
simply show a picture of a kingdom thriving under a benevolent king; these are simply
hymns of praise. He therefore has to take the help of symbolism. The source of his
symbolism cannot be found in the Vedas themselves --- he simply imposes them arbitrarily
in order to suit his theory. Only the eye of faith can produce such an interpretation of the
Then these two quote a verse from Sama Veda , II:6,8 : "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." They get the translation almost right with a peculiarly Islamic twist. The proper translation
is, "I from my Father have obtained deep knowledge of eternal Law; I was born like unto the
Sun". As for 'Ahmad', once again it is a typical example of sleight-of-hand like Mamah. The
actual Sanskrit term is 'ahammiddhi' , 'aham' meaning " I ".
To clinch the matter, the scholars then quote from Rig Veda V, 27, 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]."
However, the standard translation of this verse reads, "The Godlike hero, famousest of nobles,
hath granted me two oxen with a wagon. Trvrsan's son Tryaruna hath distinguished himself,
Vaisvanara Agni! with ten thousands". "Vaisvanara" is another name for the fire-god, but it is not
known with certainty who Trvrsan or his son might be. However, Haq leaves out the reference to
the Fire-god. Trvsran becomes another name for Allah (on the grounds perhaps that there is a
possibility that the name can refer to a god) while the name Tryaruna is omitted altogether.
Instead he once again falls back on the standby of Mamah. Apparently wherever the particular
combination of letters forming the word 'mamah', whether alone or whether occurring in
combination of other letters in a word, it is employed to prove that it indicates Muhammad. The
maximum the verse can be stretched to read is that, "O fire, lord of mankind! the protector of the
righteous, extremely wise, lordly (incidentally the term employed here is 'asura') and rich,
Trivsran's son Tryaruna has given me two cows yoked to a wagon and ten thousand gold pieces
and thus gained fame". The singer of the verse is being favoured not with words of wisdom but
with material gifts. One cannot call Haq's translation anything other than a lie. Not surprisingly
he leaves the rest of the hymn alone. In it the singer explains that the king had given him these
gifts because he had pleased him with his praise and he asks the gods to grant happiness to the
donor. Further Dr.Zakir Naik in his site says
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).
The above specified Hymn and verse translates as : "With all-outstripping chariot-wheel, O
Indra, thou far-famed, hast overthrown the twice ten Kings of men,
With sixty thousand nine-and-ninety followers, who came in arms to fight with friendless
It speaks about Indra, a praise to Indra and not Muhammad!! Dr.Naik Susrava is singular.
Susravas = plural. Group of praiseworthy people. So it does not point to Muhammad!
5. The last premise would be logic. Dr.Naik and Dr.Haq seem to commit several logical
fallacies. They tend to contradict each other. They say they don't believe in HINDU scriptures
once. You can find how Zakir Naik criticizes Hindu way of worship in a section called
"Conveying Islam To A Hindu". But still he uses Hindu scriptures' authority to prove
Muhammad's prophethood and Islam's validity! Either this proves
*Hindu religion is truly divine.
* Allah did not give enough proofs in Qur'an to sustain his claims.
* All muslims must convert to Hinduism.
* Muslim scholars are bluffing to convert Hindus just like they do to Christian.
Dr.Zakir Naik and Dr.Haq actually commit these logical fallacies : Post hoc ergo propter hoc,
Red herring, Petitio principii, Non Sequitur ,Straw man and Tu quoque. Simply no hindus
will convert because of such bad marketing skills!! Truth is powerful than any other attractive
marketing techniques.
Another claim of Muhammad being Kalki Avatar is also doing rounds. Due to space and time
constraint, let me tell you, AVATAR = GOD INCARNATE. Muhammad was a normal arab who
did nothing! Kalki Avatar will have 8 superhuman qualities. Muhammad had none. For a more
detailed explanation, of why Muhammad cannot be Kalki Avatar can be found here.
A Point To Ponder Upon
The Vedas are supposed to be most supreme text of Hindus along with the Gita. There are 4
The number of verses in the Rig Veda total 10800
The Number of verses in Atharva Veda total 5987
The Number of verses in Yajur Veda total 2000
The number of verses in Sama Veda total 1875
Therefore, length of Vedas = 10800 + 5987 + 2000 + 1875 = 20662
Length of Qur'an = 6346
Ratio = Length of Vedas / Length of Qur'an = 3.255
The Qur'an is thrice as small as Vedas. When muslim scholars take a lots of time to learn Arabic,
memorise Qur'an,read hadiths, do you believe they can learn Sanskrit, or even if not, read such
big Vedas, interpret them, and present it? Some people who get money do this, for them, they just
vomit whatever they get on hand without giving it a thinking. Imagine, Upanishads, Puranas,
Bhagavad gita,etc. when put together will take a lifetime to read and understand them.
I strongly feel, Dr.Ali Sina is of much higher caliber than any of these meek so-called scholars
(for dollars??). Ali doesn't provide stupid data like these people. Hope Hindus now have a clear
idea of what this hoax of Muhammad in Hindu scriptures are all about. They are nothing but
words on water.
The amount of manipulation and misdirection we see with these men is astonishing. The Islamic
propagators are either grossly misled or are apparently relying on the fact that not enough of their
readers will know Sanskrit or bother to look up references. They happily mistranslate and use
symbolism without any shred of proof. One understands their eagerness to prove that Islam is the
culmination of every religion. However one has to wonder, if the faith of the writers like these is
so insecure that they have to search in other religions for legitimacy. Also one has to wonder
what this says of other Muslim scholars who have read the Vedas before. None of them had ever
read any of the meanings that Dr.Naik or Dr.Haq finds; obviously they were either more foolish
or less learned than our Dr.Naik/Dr.Haq. However, the climax comes in this assertion: "The
Vedas contain many prophecies about Prophet Muhammad. Some European and Hindu
translators of the Vedas have removed the name referring to the Prophet, while others have tried
to explain away the mantras (verses) on his life events, Ka'bah, Makkah, Medinah, Arabia, and
other events using the terminology of the Hindus, such as purification rituals, and lands and
rivers in India". In other words, explain what scholars might like, our good Islamic Sanskrit
scholar knows that they would be lies. Dr.Naik/Dr.Haq operates under the assumption that
anyone who tries to refute them is by the very definition a liar. This assertion is a wonderful way
of not having to face the truth. (Of course I personally believe that Haq's book/ Zakir Naik's
Da'wah material is not meant for either the Hindu or the serious scholar; it is targeted at the
Muslims to strengthen their faith). Hope I have made it clear to many people, especially Hindus
about the lies of Dr.Zakir Naik and Dr.Abdul Haq, of how they write articles,books,da'wah
material,etc. just to fool the ignorant Hindus, because most Hindus are not fanatically religious
and conaequently they don't read much of their books. Infact when a Hindu reads this article,
he/she will have increased faith in HINDUISM than converting to Islam. Thanks to bad
marketing techniques of Dr.Zakir Naik blemished with lies.

Muslims tend to replace every 'praiseworthy' with 'Muhammad'. Ambrose Bierce said
"There are four kinds of Homicide: felonious, excusable, justifiable, and praiseworthy."
Now muslims, why don't you try replacing praiseworthy with Muhammad here?
