Bhavishya Purana : The Prediction of Islam

and Prophet Muhammad

Tag Archives: brahmin

Muhammad- Is he a demon or the destroyer

of the devil?

Sometime back I came across several write ups of Hindus where they attempted to refute
the Muslim claim that Prophet Muhammad was predicted in the Bhavishya Purana as a
true Prophet of God. The main blog which attempts to prove that Muhammad (peace be
upon him) was a demon (God Forbid) is
( The Hindu opinions in this regard, however,
are divergent. Some Hindus rejected Bhavishya Purana as an interpolated scripture
because it even contains the events of the British Empire in India and mention of Queen
Victoria. Other Hindus decided to take a unique route. They accepted that Prophet
Muhammad was mentioned in the Bhavishya Purana but in a negative manner as a demon
incarnate rather than a saintly person.

They attempted to do this only by picking few words in from the Sanskrit text of Prati Sarg
Parv where this is mentioned and translating them in a wrong manner.

I will present before you the correct interpretation of the passage from the Bhavishya
Purana and refute the evil propaganda of these misled Hindus who are driven by the
ideology of hate, because they consider all non Indians as evil and untouchable. Page 1 of 14

My opinion about Bhavishya Purana: No doubt it is a highly interpolated book, just

like the other books of Hinduism are interpolated, be it the Vedas (click here
vedas)and here (
agniveer/116-debunking-agniveer-textual-corruption-in-vedas)), the Mabharata, the
Gita (click here (
etc. Islam is not dependent on this Purana or other Purana to prove itself. Let the whole
corpus of Hindu texts speak ill of Islam, still that would have no impact on the veracity
of Islam. Still, the chapter in question does not necessarily speak about Islam in a
negative manner, as the Hindu propagandists are claiming. With Almightys help, I will
refute their mistranslation and misinterpretation to the core.

The main refutation

The first thing one has to understand about the relevant passage of Bhavishya Purana, is
that it is a dream or a vision and not an actual reality because no meeting of any Raja Bhoj
happened with Prophet Muhammad, nor does history record any such interaction. Dreams
always have to be interpreted and not taken too literally. The figures in the dreams have
deep meaning which needs to be revealed. This is the only plausible way to interpret this
chapter. I will highlight the main figures of this dream/vision and what they symbolize.
They are as follows:

1. Mahamad: Stands for Prophet Muhammad, as well as Islam.

2. Raja Bhoj: Symbolizes the dominant innocent Hindu population of India

3. Kalidaas: Symbolizes the shrewd Brahmins and Swamis of India

4: Angelic being: Symbolizes God or at times his envoy (doot)

The Sanskrit text of Pratisarg Parv 3; Khand 3; Adhyaai 3; Shlokas 5 to 27 is given below Page 2 of 14
brahmin | Bhavishya Purana : The Prediction of Islam and Prophet Muhammad 4/22/16, 1:20 PM

Incorrect translation of shlokas 5-8 as given by the Hindus

He crossed the river Sindhu and conquered over the gandharas, mlecchas, shakas,
kasmiris, naravas and sathas. He punished them and collected a large ammount of
wealth. Then the king went along with Mahamada (Muhammad), the preceptor of
mleccha-dharma, and his followers to the great god, Lord Shiva, situated in the desert.
He bathed Lord Shiva with Ganges water and worshipped him in his mind with
pancagavya (milk, ghee, yoghurt, cow dung, and cow urine) and sandalwood paste,
etc. After he offered some prayers and pleased him. Page 3 of 14
brahmin | Bhavishya Purana : The Prediction of Islam and Prophet Muhammad 4/22/16, 1:20 PM

Correct Translation

At that time a spiritual teacher (Acharya) known as Mahamad (Muhammad) appeared

amongst the Mlecchas (non Indians/non Aryans), along with his
companions/disciples. The King after giving this Mahaa Deva (of angelic disposition)
dweller of the desert (Marusthal Nivasi), a bath in the Panchgavya and the Ganges
water (meaning honouring and praising him) offered him presents and showing him all
reverence said: I pay obeisance to you (Namaste) O Pride of Humanity (Girija Nath)
dweller of the desert (Marusthal Nivaasi/Arabian dweller). You are the destroyer of the
Devil (Tripurasur Naashaaya) who propagates deceit. You have been protected by
fellow Mlecchas, and you are the embodiment of Divine Qualities (Sacchidanand
Roopine). I am a your servant, and have come seeking your refuge.

Few points come out of these verses.

1. Mahamad (Muhammad) has been called an Acharya (a spiritual teacher) of Mlecchas

(the illiterate people).
2. The King Bhoj (innocent Indian people) will yearn to follow Prophet Muhammad with
all humility and accept him as their teacher.
3. Muhammad is the destroyer of the Devil. Tripurasur in Puranic mythology stands for
the Devil.
4. Muhammad is a dweller of the desert. It cannot refer to Lord Shiva of the Puranas
because his abode is said to be the Mount Kailash in the Himlayas and not the desert.
5. The Prophet will be given protection against his enemies, by the fellow Mlecchas.
6. Raja Bhoj washed the Prophet with Ganges water and Panchgavya. Since this is a
vision, it cannot be taken literally but must be taken as symbolic for honour.
7. He is called as the embodiment of divine qualities.

Meanings of certain words

Mleccha (): The word means a non Aryan, a foreigner, non Sanskrit speaking person
according to its origin. Mleccha is itself a root according to Paninis Dhatupath
CHURADIGAN (tenth conjugation) whose meaning is or unclear
language. Mleccha only means one who speaks a foreign unknown language. it does not
mean wicked according to Dhatupath of Panini. Later, it also took on the meaning of
barbarian or an evil person. The reason for this is that according to the Castist Hindu view
( only
Aryans are civilized and superior people. The rest of the world beyond the boundary of
Aryavarta is inferior and evil. As Hinduism is a religion which encourages racial
discrimination and linguistic chauvinism, it is natural that they will look down upon the
rest of the world as inferior; their religions as inferior, their language as inferior. From this Page 4 of 14
brahmin | Bhavishya Purana : The Prediction of Islam and Prophet Muhammad 4/22/16, 1:20 PM

perspective the word Mleccha, which stands for a non-Sanskrit speaking foreigner, has
become synonymous with a barbarian. Below is the meaning of this word from Monier
Williams Sanskrit-English Dictionary.


The distinction between Aryas and Mlecchas is not on the basis of character but on the
basis nationality as is clearly demarcated by Manu Smriti chapter 2: verses 21-23. Page 5 of 14
brahmin | Bhavishya Purana : The Prediction of Islam and Prophet Muhammad 4/22/16, 1:20 PM

21. That (country) which (lies) between the Himavat and the Vindhya (mountains) to
the east of Prayaga and to the west of Vinasana (the place where the river Sarasvati
disappears) is called Madhyadesa (the central region).

22. But (the tract) between those two mountains (just mentioned), which (extends) as far
as the eastern and the western oceans, the wise call Aryavarta (the country of the

23. That land where the black antelope naturally roams, one must know to be fit for the
performance of sacrifices; (the tract) different from that (is) the country of the

Thus, according to the discriminatory interpretation of Hindus, only Aryavarta aka India is
the place where noble people are found and the rest of the world is filled with evil people.
Thus, Aryas are called Aryas (Noble) because they belong to the Aryavarta and Mlecchas
are called so not because they are evil but because they are foreigners.

Thus the passage of Bhavishya Purana mentioning the Prophet Muhammad is among the
Mlecchas means a foreigner, not a wicked man. If Hindus will insist that Mleccha means a
sinner still that meaning will apply because Prophet Muhammad (sws) was raised by God
to be a teacher (Acharya/Muallim) to the sinners of that time and purify them spiritually,
teach them the Book of God and the Wisdom of it. In fact the Quran testifies to this in
Surah 62 (al-Jumuah) verse 2 when it says

It is He (God) Who has sent amongst the Unlettered People a messenger from among
themselves, to rehearse to them His Signs, to sanctify them, and to instruct them in
Scripture and Wisdom although they had been, before, in manifest error

However, let me disprove the Hindu polemicists conclusively by establishing from

Bhavishya Puran itself that the meaning of Mleccha is not necessarily bad.

The Aryan religion had slowly degenerated into a corrupted form and needed to be
substituted by the Mleccha religion. This is mentioned in Bhavishya Puran Prati Sarg parv
as follows,

( Page 6 of 14
brahmin | Bhavishya Purana : The Prediction of Islam and Prophet Muhammad 4/22/16, 1:20 PM

Corruption and violence will be the widespread in the seven sacred cities (Kashi etc.),
because they will be inhabited by Dasyu, Shabara, Bhilla and other foolish people. In
the land of Mlecchas, the followers of Mleccha religion will be wise and brave
people. All good qualities will be found in Mlecchas and all sorts of vices will
accumulate in the Aryas. Bharata and its islands will be ruled by Mlecchas. Having
known these facts, O Muni, glorify the name of your Lord.

[Bhavishya Puran, Prati sarg parv (3); Khand 1; Adhyaai 5, Shlokas 38-40]

This refutes the claims of the Hindu blog that Mlecchas are always bad and Aryas are
always good. Let them now come forward and disprove us, if they can.

Other Shlokas

Let us turn to the meaning of shlokas 9-14.

Incorrect translation of shlokas 9-14 as given by the Hindus

Suta Goswami said: After hearing the kings prayers, Lord Shiva said: O king Bhojaraja,
you should go to the place called Mahakakshvara, that land is called Vahika and now is
being contaminated by the mlecchas. In that terrible country there no longer exists
dharma. There was a mystic demon named Tripura (Tripurasura), whom I have already
burnt to ashes, he has come again by the order of Bali. He has no origin but he achieved
a benediction from me. His name is Mahamada (Muhammad) and his deeds are like
that of a ghost. Therefore, O king, you should not go to this land of the evil ghost. By
my mercy your intelligence will be purified. Hearing this the king came back to his
country and Mahamada(Muhammad) came with them to the bank of the river Sindhu.

Suta Goswami said: After hearing the kings praises, an angel (dev) said to him. O
Bhojraj, go to the place Mahakaaleshwar (in other words, look at the condition of that
place). The Mlecchas have spoiled the well known land of the Arabs (Vahika Desh).
Arya Dharm (the religion of truth in Indian parlance) is not to be found in that country.
Before also there had appeared this Satan (Tripurasura: denoting Satanic times) whom I
had killed. He has come again (meaning Satanic times have returned) by the order of
the Devil. To show the right path to these misguided people and guide them to the
truth, the well known Muhammad, who has been given the epithet of Brahma (Ayoni),
is busy in bring the Pishachas (meat-eaters) to the right path. Therefore, O King, you
need not go to this land of the foolish Pishachas. Through my mercy you will be
sanctified here itself (in your own land). Hearing this the King returned to his country.
Mahamada (Muhammad, signifying Islam) also came to the banks of the Sindhu

Few points come out of these verses.

1. The condition of Arabia will deteriorate and it will corrupted by evil-doers. Qurn has
verified this condition prevailing in Arabia at the time of Prophet Muhammad in these
words, Corruption has appeared throughout
the land and sea by [reason of] what the hands of people have earned [Surah Rum 30:
Verse 41]
2. The True Religion is not found there. Here, the Sanskrit terms Arya Dharm do not refer
to Hinduism, but to the true religion in Indian parlance. This true religion of Ibraheem
(Abraham/Brahma) had disappeared from Arabia. The Qurn has used the terms
Deeni Hunafa and Deen al-Qayyim to describe this true religion,

And they have been commanded
no more than this: To worship Allah, offering Him sincere devotion, being true (in
faith); to establish regular prayer; and to practice regular charity; and that is the
Religion Right and Straight. [Surah Bayyinah 98: verse 4]
3. The present enemies of Prophet Muhammad and the Satanic elements will perish just
like they perished in previous times such as the enemies of Prophet Noah, Lut, Saalih,
Shuayb, Moses, Abraham etc the great civilizations like Aad, Thamud, Pharaoh,
Namrud, etc perished ultimately. The word Tripurasur in this passage does not just
stand for some mythological demon, but to the Satanic order. Remember this is a dream
4. In order to guide these misguided people Prophet Muhammad has been given the
epithet of Brahma (Abraham) and he is busy in reforming his Arabian people. Hindus
have mistranslated the term Ayoni as having no origin. If we adopt this meaning, the
sentence becomes meaningless. Actually, in Hindu tradition, Ayoni is a title of Brahma
(Brahma is sanskritized version of Abraham). The reason for giving Prophet
Muhammad, the epithet of Brahma, is because just like Abraham (Brahma) fought
against the sinfulness and idolatry of his time, similarly Prophet Muhammad will fight
the idolatry of his time.
5. King Bhoj (standing for the Indian people) will not have to go to Arabia. They will be
purified when Muslims will arrive in India. So now that the Muslims have arrived in
India, the Hindus should convert to Islam. Page 8 of 14

Other Shlokas

Now let us turn to the meaning of shlokas 15 onwards.

Incorrect translation of shlokas 15 onwards as given by the Hindus

He was expert in expanding illusion, so he said to the king very pleasingly: O great king,
your god has become my servant. Just see, as he eats my remnants, so I will show you. The
king became surprised when he saw this just before them. Then in anger Kalidasa rebuked
Mahamada(Muhammad) O rascal, you have created an illusion to bewilder the king, I
will kill you, you are the lowest

Correct Translation

This prince (i.e. Muhammad), full of wisdom, affectionately said to the King: O King, your
deities are my servants. Just see, they eat my leftover food. Hearing this argument and
seeing this, the King was surprised and was mulling to convert to this foreign religion.
Then in terrible anger, Kalidas rebuked Mahamada (Muhammad) by saying, O cheat, you
have bewildered the King, with your wisdom. I will kill you, the wicked person that you

Points come out of this passage

As you can see the Hindus are consistently mistranslating some words and not translating
some other words. The words the King was surprised and was mulling to convert to this
foreign religion are not given by the Hindu translation. This shows their intellectual
dishonesty. Now, here are the inferences from this passage:

1. The Hindus here mistranslated the word Maayaa as illusion, when in reality it also
carries the meaning of Wisdom (See Monier Williams Sanskrit-English Dictionary).
Even in Rigveda 1/11/7 , the word Maayaa has been used in a positive sense for Lord
Indra who is supposed to have resorted to Maayaa in order to defeat his enemies.
| The wily ua, Indra! thou overthrew with your
wondrous powers.
2. As all these events are happening in a dream, we need to interpret them properly. Now
here, Prophet Muhammad reasons AFFECTIONATELY with Raja Bhoj (the Indian
people), that the things/animals you worship in Hinduism, eat our leftover food. How
then do they deserve our worship? This is the Prophetic method of argument. Prophets
have an affection towards the people to whom they are sent. The Prophets urge people
to use their mind and turn to the worship of one God, and leave the senseless worship
of animals and other created things. The Prophet speaks wisely and affectionately with Page 9 of 14
brahmin | Bhavishya Purana : The Prediction of Islam and Prophet Muhammad 4/22/16, 1:20 PM

the people hoping that they will understand. Do they understand?

3. Yes, Raja Bhoj, (symbolizing the majority of the people), is attracted to the plain
message of the Prophet Muhammad. The people know that this argument is good and
they feel attracted to Islam and think of converting to Islam. This is true even of modern
times. Whenever the polytheistic people are questioned that how can you worship
something which is lower than humans, they agree in their heart to this truth.
4. But here comes the hurdle. As soon as the shrewd Brahmin priests (symbolized by
Kalidas) get to know that the Indian people are attracted to Islam and will convert to
Islam, they start their mischievous propaganda. Their most effective trick is to vilify
Islam, insult the Prophet and try to ruin his image in the minds of the ordinary Hindus,
so that people are no longer attracted to Islam. They even try to kill the Prophet
(Muslims), because they have no knowledgeable response to the plain questions. This
same strategy is being spoken of in this passage. Kalidas (i.e. the shrewd Brahmins), not
able to respond to the plain argument of the Prophet (and Muslims), starts to rebuke the
Prophet and call him insulting titles like cheat, fraud, magician, etc. This attitude of the
enemies of Islam is even spoken of in the Holy Qurn in these words.
When the Truth did come to them from Us, they said: This is

indeed evident magic! [Surah Yunus 10: verse 76]
But when Our Signs came to them, that should have opened their eyes, they said:
This is sorcery manifest! [Surah Naml 27: verse 13]

As to those who deny the Signs of
Allah and in defiance of right, slay the prophets, and slay those who teach just dealing
with mankind, announce to them a grievous penalty. [Surah Aalim Imran 3: verse 21]

The lesson in this passage of Bhavishya Purana is that people of India should not fall in the
tricks of shrewd Brahmin priests like VHP/RSS/Arya Samaj/ISKCON/Art of
Living/Agniveer/Ramdev etc. They should ignore their propaganda against Islam and
Prophet Muhammad and embrace the religion of Prophet Muhammad, who loves them
and is affectionate to them.

Other Shlokas

Now let us turn to the meaning of shlokas 22 onwards.

Incorrect translation of shlokas 22 onwards as given by the Hindus

That city is known as their site of pilgrimage, a place which was Madina or free from
intoxication. Having a form of a ghost (Bhuta), the expert illusionist
Mahamada(Muhammad) appeared at night in front of king Bhojaraja and said: O king,
your religion is of course known as the best religion among all. Still I am going to establish
a terrible and demoniac religion by the order of the Lord . The symptoms of my followers
will be that they first of all will cut their genitals, have no shikha, but having beard, be Page 10 of 14
brahmin | Bhavishya Purana : The Prediction of Islam and Prophet Muhammad 4/22/16, 1:20 PM

wicked, make noise loudly and eat everything. They should eat animals without
performing any rituals. This is my opinion. They will perform purificatory act with the
musala or a pestle as you purify your things with kusha. Therefore, they will be known as
musalman, the corrupters of religion. Thus the demoniac religion will be founded by me.
After having heard all this the king came back to his palace and that ghost(Muhammad)
went back to his place.

Correct Translation

That city is known as their site of pilgrimage, a place which was Madina or free from
intoxication. An angelic being (Dev/standing for Gods envoy), in the form of a Pisacha
appeared at night in front of king Bhojaraja and said: O king, your Arya Dharma has been
known as the best religion among all, still I am now going to establish a strong meat-eating
religion by the order of the Lord. The peculiar features of my followers will be that they
will be circumcised, have no shikha, having a beard, revolutionary, make Azaan (call to
prayer) loudly and will assimilate all religions. They will eat animals without performing
elaborate Hindu rituals. They will purified with the musala or a pestle as you purify your
things with kusha. They will be known as Musalmaan, and will refute the (false) religion.
This the meat-eating religion will be founded by me. After having heard all this the king
came back to his palace and that angelic being also went away.
Points to be considered.

1. The city of Madina is spoken as being free from intoxication (Mad Heen). We know that
wine barrels were emptied in the streets of Madina, never to be refilled. This is a
righteous city.
2. The angelic being (devroop) here is a Gods envoy who is informing the Indian people
of the features of Muslims.
3. Arya Dharma will be substituted by Islam, as the old religion has become corrupted.
We all know that the Vedas, Upanishads, Mahabharata, Gita, and Purans have become
corrupted. Vedas are not studied by common masses anymore and they are too
voluminous to be books of daily guidance. For this reason, the Holy Qurn is
substituting them.
4. God will establish the meat eating religion. Hinduism had wrongly become vegetarian
and abadoned meat eating under the influence of Buddhism and Jainism. Otherwise in
Vedas and other Hindu scriptures, meat eating is allowed. Now Islam will be again
allowing consumption of meat. The word Pishacha Dharma in this passage has been
wrongly translated by the Hindus as a demoniac religion. It actually means meat eating
religion. Because meat eating in corrupted Hinduism had been looked down upon as
demoniac act, therefore the Pishacha was equated to demon. Otherwise from its root, it
stands for meat. in Sanskrit means flesh or meat; means a lump of flesh or
meat. So highlighting one word just to deceive ordinary Hindus in thinking of Islam as
a demoniac religion, is real demoniac behaviour of the shrewd Brahmins, (depicted by
5. This passage also speaks of the features of Muslims, which we all know of. I will only
explain few of the contentious words because they tend to be emphasized by the Hindu Page 11 of 14
brahmin | Bhavishya Purana : The Prediction of Islam and Prophet Muhammad 4/22/16, 1:20 PM

blog. The passage uses the word Dushaka ( ) which normally is thought to mean
polluted. However, in Sanskrit it carries another meaning of Dosha (Blame;
Objection; Refutation). Some of the meanings of the word Dooshana in V.S. Aptes
Practical Sanskrit-English Dictionaryare,
Adverse argument
Therefore, Dharmadooshaka in this context here will mean refuter of false religion. One
that will put false religious beliefs and practices in the dock and abandon them. Now,
when it does so, obviously, from the perspective of the people of those false religions, it
will a pollution or corruption of their false religion. So, if we adopt that meaning also, it
is perfectly okay. It is a fact that Islam refutes the false ideas like Caste System, which
was made the integral part of Hindu Religion. To the Hindus, who believe in this
system, certainly, abolishing caste is a corruption in Hindu religion, because without
Caste System there is no Hinduism. So, Islams message of equality of all humans, did
not go well with the shrewd Brahmins.

6. Islam is the future of India.

Let the common Hindus not fall into the trap of Hindutva
propaganda against Islam and Prophet Muhammad and
without any further delay, accept the pure religion of Islam,
and fulfill this dream of Bhavishya Puran.

Meaning of Asur

The Hindu blog attempted to make the common Hindus believe that Prophet Muhammad
was an Asur (demon). But let me expose their falsehood. They do not even know their own
scriptures. If Asur only means evil spirit or demon, may I ask, why are Hindu Vedic deities
like Indra, Agni aur Rudra given the attribute of Asur? Impossible!, said the Hindu with
whom I discussed. Dont worry, I said. I will show you. So saying I quoted from
Rigveda 1/24/14

| ||

With bending down, oblations, sacrifices, O Varuna, we deprecate your anger: Wise
Asura, you King of wide dominion, loosen the bonds of sins by us committed. Page 12 of 14
brahmin | Bhavishya Purana : The Prediction of Islam and Prophet Muhammad 4/22/16, 1:20 PM

Here, Vedic God, Varuna has been called as Asura.

Again in Rigveda 8/42/1 Varuna has been called as Asura

LORD of all wealth, the Asura propped the heavens, and measured out the broad
earths wide expanses.

Indra is called Asura in Rigved 1/54/3


High glory hath the Asura, compact of strength, drawn on by two Bay Steeds: a Bull, a
Car is he.

Rigved 1/174/1

YOU art the King of all the Gods, O Indra: protect the men, O Asura, preserve us.

Agni is also called Asura is Rigveda 5/12/1

To Agni, lofty Asura, meet for worship, Steer of eternal Law, my prayer I offer;

Rudra, who in the Puranas is known as Shiva is also called Asura in Rigveda 5/42/11


Worship thou Rudra for his great good favour: adore the Asura, God, with salutations.

These are more than sufficient to refute the Hindu claim that Asura is a demon. If they
want to malign Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) as a demon, let them first malign
their own gods whom they worship with pride.

If Hindus feel that the information I have given here is not correct, then let them disprove it
with proper references.
