Scriptures of Hinduism can be classified into two types: Shruti and Smriti.


Shruti is considered to be of divine origin and Smriti is man-made.


  • Books under SHRUTI are the Vedas which consists of poetical hymns and they have their subgroups: Aranyakas, Brahmanas and Upanishads.
  • Books under SMRITI are Puranas (sacred legends), Itihasas (sacred epics) Ramayana and Mahabharata and Manusmrithi which is Law book of Hindus.

Prophet Muhammad in Vedas

1. Muhammad  prophesised in the Rigveda

A prophecy is 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 .


2. Prophet Muhammad ﷺ  inSamaveda book II:6:8

Ahmati Pituhspari Meghamratasya Jagra Ehamsurya Evajane

Ahmed acquired from his Lord the knowledge of Divine Law


Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in Bhavishya Purana

According to Bhavishya Purana in the Prati Sarag Parv III Khand 3 Adhyay 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 Muhammad.


The Prophecy clearly states:

  • 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 Sahaba. No other Prophet had as many companions as Prophet Muhammad ﷺ.
  • He is referred as the pride of mankind.
  • He will kill the devil, i.e. abolish idol worship and all sorts of vices.
  • The Prophet will be given protection against the enemy.


Prophet Muhammad ﷺ in Bhagavat Purana

Bhagavat Purana 12:2:29– Prophecy says: He is Adorned with 8 qualities and riches, riding a swift horse with a sword, savior of the world. Meaning He will not use any guns/ rifles/ atomic bombs etc.


He is mentioned as NARASHANGSAin various places like Rigveda – 1:13: 3,  Yajur veda – 29:27 and in many other places.



Therefore on analyzing Hindu scriptures we can conclude that all these prophecy refers to none but the last and final Messenger Muhammad ﷺ sent for the entire mankind.


Allah said in Qur’an: And whoever desires other than Islam as religion - never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers. Qur’an.Surah Al’e Imran 3:85
