The translation of Verses 5-27 (Sanskrit
] of the
, Prati Sarg Parv III: 3, 3) is
presented below from the work of Dr. Vidyarthi.
“A malechha (belonging to
a foreign country and speaking foreign language)

will be Mahamad.
Raja (Bhoj) after giving this Mahadev Arab (of
angelic disposition) a bath in the 'Panchgavya'
and the Ganges water, (i.e. purging him of all
sins) offered him the presents 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 malechha opponents
(idol worshipers, pagans).'
‘O Ye! the image of the Most Pious God the
biggest Lord, I am a slave to thee, take me as
one lying on thy feet.'
“The Malechhas have spoiled the
well-known land of the
Arabs. Arya Dharma is not to be found in
that country. Before also there appeared a
misguided fiend whom I had killed [note: e.g.,
Abraha Al-Ashram, the Abyssinian viceroy of
Yemen, who attacked Mecca]; 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
Mahamad (Mohammad), who has been given by
me the epithet of Brahma 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 a
Pishacha said to Raja Bhoj, "O Raja! Your Arya
Dharma has been made to prevail over all
religions, but according to the commandments of
‘Ashwar Parmatma (God, Supreme Spirit),

My follower will be a man
circumcised, without a tail (on his head),
keeping beard, creating a revolution, announcing
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. Because of their fighting the
they will be known as Musalmans (Muslims).
I shall be the originator of this religion of
the meat-eating nation."
More Prophecies In
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. Some mantras containing
prophecies are inter-mixed with explanatory phrases,
and it may be that these were commentaries and
explanatory notes on the prophecies, which later
became a part of the prophecy.
Several prophecies are found in Atharva Veda: (1)
XX: 21, Mantras 6, 7, and 9, (2) XX: 137, Mantras 7
through 9, and (3) X: 2, Mantras 26, 27, 29, 30, and
32. Similarly, in
Rig Veda, additional prophecies are found in:
(1) VII: 96, Mantras 13 through 16, and (2) I: 53,
Mantras 6 and 9. Finally, a prophecy is found in
Sama Veda III: 10, Mantra 1. These are a sample of
many prophecies. The serious reader may want to
refer to scholarly work of Dr. A.H. Vidyarthi,
entitled “Mohammad in World Scriptures,” 1990. This
book explains the Hindu terminology used in the
Mantras and the meaning and usage of certain words
and phrases from within the Vedas and other Hindu
