Vedic Past Of Pre-Islamic Arabia -

 

Many centuries before prophet Muhammad and the advent of

Islam, Arabia or Arabistan was an extremely rich and glorious center of

Vedic civilization. In this article, I will prove to you point by point

that pre-Islamic Arabia was in fact a flourishing civilization which

revered Vedic culture. In fact the Black Stone at the Kaaba is the

Lingam of Lord Shiva. Millions of Muslims kiss this sacred emblem of

Lord Shiva every day.

 

 

 

In learning about this most ancient heritage, let's begin with the word

Arabistan itself. Arabistan is derived from the original Sanskrit term

Arvasthan which means The Land of Horses. Since time immemorial

proponents of the Vedic culture used to breed exceptional horses in

this

region. Thus eventually the land itself began to be called Arva

(Horses)

-Sthan (place). The people who lived in this land were called Semitic.

Semitic comes from the Sanskrit word Smritic. Arabs followed the

ancient

Vedic Smritis such as Manu-Smriti as their revered religious guides and

thus they were identified as Smritic which has been corrupted into

Semitic.

 

At that time the Uttarapath (Northern Highway) was the international

highway to the North of India. It was via Uttarapath that Arabia and

other Middle Eastern countries drew their spiritual, educational and

material sustenance from India. Besides, this Sea-links were formed

with

India at least 800 years before the advent of Islam. Basra was the

ancient gateway to India because it was at this port that the Arab

lands

recieved Indian goods and visitors. At that time the spoken language

was

Sanskrit, which later dwindled into the local variation that we now

call

Arabic. The proof of this is that thousands of words that were derived

from Sanskrit still survive in Arabic today. Here is a sampling of

some:

 

Sanskrit, Arabic, English: Sagwan, Saj, Teakwood/ Vish, Besh,

Poison/Anusari,

Ansari, Follower/ Shishya, Sheikh, Disciple/ Mrityu, Mout, Mortal/

Pra-Ga-ambar,

Paigambar, One from heaven/ Maleen, Malaun, Dirty, soiled,MALevolent/

Aapati, Aafat,

Unfortunate, Karpas, Kaifas, Cotton/ Karpur, Kafur, Camphor/ Pramukh,

Barmak,

Promonent Chief/Naranga, Aranja, Orange.

 

Even various kinds of swords were referred to as Handuwani, Hindi,

Saif-Ul-Hind, Muhannid and Hinduani. The Sanskrit Astronomical treatise

Brahma-Sphuta-Siddhanta in Arabic translation is known as Sind-Hind ,

while another treatise Khanda-Khadyaka was called Arkand. Mathematics

itself was called Hindisa .

 

The Arabs derived technical guidance in every branch of study such as

astronomy, mathematics and physics from India. A noted scholar of

history, W.H. Siddiqui notes:

"The Arab civilization grew up intensively

as well as extensively on the riches of

Indian trade and commerce. Nomadic Arab

tribes became partially settled communities

and some of them lived within walled towns

practised agriculture and commerce, wrote

on wood and stone, feared the gods and

honored the kings."

 

Some people wrongly believe that Arabs used the word Hindu as a term of

contemptuous abuse. Nothing could be further from the truth. The people

of pre-Islamic Arabia held Hinduism in great esteem as evidenced from

the fact that they would endearingly call their most attractive and

favourite daughters as Hinda and Saifi Hindi. The fact that Arabs

regarded India as their spiritual and cultural motherland long before

the damaging influence of Islam is corroborated by the following poem

which mentions each one of the four Vedas by name: (Note The English

translation)

 

"Aya muwarekal araj yushaiya noha

minar HIND-e

Wa aradakallaha

manyonaifail jikaratun"

"Oh the divine land of HIND (India)

(how) very blessed art thou!

Because thou art the chosen

of God blessed with knowledge"

"Wahalatijali Yatun ainana sahabi

akha-atun jikra Wahajayhi yonajjalur

-rasu minal HINDATUN "

"That celestial knowledge which like

four lighthouses shone in such

brilliance - through the (utterances of)

Indian sages in fourfold abundance."

"Yakuloonallaha ya ahal araf alameen

kullahum

Fattabe-u jikaratul VEDA bukkun

malam yonajjaylatun"

"God enjoins on all humans,

follow with hands down

The path the Vedas with his divine

precept lay down."

"Wahowa alamus SAMA wal YAJUR

minallahay Tanajeelan

Fa-e-noma ya akhigo mutiabay-an

Yobassheriyona jatun"

"Bursting with (Divine) knowledge

are SAM & YAJUR bestowed on creation,

Hence brothers respect and

follow the Vedas, guides to salvation"

"Wa-isa nain huma RIG ATHAR nasayhin

Ka-a-Khuwatun

Wa asant Ala-udan wabowa masha -e-ratun"

"Two others, the Rig and Athar teach us

fraternity , Sheltering under their

lustre dispels darkness till eternity"

 

 

This poem was written by Labi-Bin-E- Akhtab-Bin-E-Turfa who lived in

Arabia around 1850 B.C. That was 2300 years before Mohammed!!! This

verse can be found in Sair- Ul-Okul which is an anthology of ancient

Arabic poetry. It was compiled in 1742 AD under order of the Turkish

Sultan Salim.

 

That the Vedas were the religious scriptures to which the Arabs owed

allegiance as early as 1800 B.C. proves not only the antiquity of the

Vedas but also the existence of Indian rule over the entire region from

the Indus to the Mediterranean, because it is a fact of history that

the

religion of the ruler is practised by his subjects.

 

Vedic culture was very much alive just before the birth of Muhammad.

Again let's refer to the Sair-Ul-Okul. The following poem was written

by

Jirrham Bintoi who lived 165 years before the prophet Muhammed. It is

in

praise of India's great King Vikramaditya who had lived 500 years

before

Bintoi.

 

"Itrasshaphai Santul

Bikramatul phehalameen Karimun

Bihillahaya Samiminela

Motakabbenaran Bihillaha

Yubee qaid min howa

Yaphakharu phajgal asari

nahans Osirim Bayjayholeen

Yaha sabdunya Kanateph natephi

bijihalin Atadari Bilala masaurateen

phakef Tasabahu. Kaunni eja majakaralhada

walhada Achimiman, burukan, Kad, Toluho

watastaru Bihillaha yakajibainana

baleykulle amarena

Phaheya jaunabil amaray Bikramatoon"

- (Sair-ul-Okul, Page 315)

 

"Fortunate are those who were born

during King Vikram's reign, he was

a noble generous, dutiful ruler devoted

to the welfare of his subjects. But at

that time, We Arabs oblivious of divinity

were lost in sensual pleasures. Plotting

& torture were rampant. The darkness of

ignorance had enveloped our country.

Like the lamb struggling for its life

in the cruel jaws of a wolf, we Arabs

were gripped by ignorance. The whole

country was enveloped in a darkness as

intense as on a New moon night. But the

present dawn & pleasant sunshine of

education is the result of the favor of

that noble king Vikram whose benevolence

did not lose sight of us foreigners as we

were. He spread his sacred culture amongst

us and sent scholars from his own land

whose brilliance shone like that of the sun

in our country. These scholars & preceptors

through whose benevolence we were once again

made aware of the presence of god, introduced

to his secret knowledge & put on the road to

truth, had come to our country to initiate us

in that culture & impart education."

 

 

Thus we can see that Vedic religion and culture were present in

Pre-Islamic Arabia as early as 1850 B.C., and definitely present at the

time of Mohammed's birth.

 

In his book Origines, Volumes 3 & 4", Sir W. Drummond adds "Tsabaism

was

the universal language of mankind when Abraham received his call, their

doctrines were probably extended all over the civilized nations of

Earth."

 

Tsabaism is merely the corruption of the word Shaivism which is Vedic

religion. On page 439 of this book, Sir Drummond mentions some of gods

of pre-Islamic Arabs, all of which were included in the 360 idols that

were consecrated in the Kaba shrine before it was raided and destroyed

by Muhammad and his followers. Here are some of the Vedic deities and

their original Sanskrit names:

Arabic SanskritEnglish Al-Dsaizan,Shani,Saturn/Al-Ozi or

The Kaba temple which was misappropriated and captured by Muslims was

originally an International Vedic Shrine. The ancient Vedic scripture

Harihareswar Mahatmya mentions that Lord Vishnu's footprints are

consecrated in Mecca. An important clue to this fact is that Muslims

call this holy precint Haram which is a deviation of the Sanskrit term

Hariyam, i.e. the precint of Lord Hari alias Lord Vishnu. The relevant

stanza reads:

 

"Ekam Padam Gayayantu

MAKKAYAANTU Dwitiyakam

Tritiyam Sthapitam

Divyam Muktyai Shuklasya Sannidhau"

 

 

The allusion is to the Vamana incarnation of Lord Vishnu whose blessed

feet were consecrated at three holy sites, namely Gaya, Mecca and

Shukla

Teertha. Worshipping such carved, holy foot impressions is a holy Vedic

custom which convert Muslims are inadvertently perpetuating. But in

doing this they delude themselves and mislead others that these

foot-impressions which are on reverential display in several mosques

and

tombs around the world are in fact Muhammad's own. There are several

snags in this argument. Firstly worshipping a foot -impression amounts

to idolatry and should therefore be taboo for a true Muslim. Secondly

Muhhamad disclaimed having performed any miracles. Therefore there can

be no foot-impression of his on stone. Thirdly foot-impressions must

always be in pairs like shoes. Yet in most of these shrines, it is

usually a single footprint which suggests that Muhammad walked on only

one foot. Another question that crops up is whether the foot-impression

is of the same size and foot in all the shrines. The fact appears to be

that when the Vedic Kaba shrine in Mecca was invaded by Muhammad, the

pairs of foot impressions of Vedic deities there were plundered and

later traded to the gullible and devout as Muhammad's own footprints

for

some favour, reward or personal gain by unscrupulous clergy. That is

why they are single and not in pairs.

 

The Black Stone which is the Shiv Emblem (also known as Sange Aswad

which is a corrupted form of the Sanskrit word Sanghey Ashweta--meaning

non-white stone) still survives in the Kaba as the central object of

Islamic veneration.

 

The Shiv Ling at The Kaba. It was broken in seven

places and now is held together by a silver band.

All other Vedic Idols could be found buried in the precincts or

trampled

underfoot in labyrinthine subterranean corridors if archaeological

excavations are undertaken. The Black Stone has been badly mutilated,

its carved base has disappeared and the stone itself is broken at seven

places. It's parts are now held together by a silver band studded with

silver nails. It lies half buried in the South Eastern portion of the

Kaba Wall. The term Kaba itself is a corruption of

the Sanskrit word Gabha (Garbha + Graha) which means Sanctum.

 

In addition, in the inscriptions from Hajja and its neighborhood was

found a votive vessel dedicated by members of two tribes called Rama

and

Somia. Rama and Soma are Vedic deities, Rama is of the Solar dynasty

and

Soma is of the Lunar Dynasty. The moon god was called by various names

in pre-Islamic times , one of them was Allah. Allah had 3 children,

Al-Lat, Al-Uzza and Manat. Al-Lat and Al-Uzza were both feminine

deities. Alla is another name for the Hindu goddess Durga. It is

obvious

that the goddess Al-Lat was Alla (Durga) and Al-Uzza was Oorja (energy

or life force also known as Shakti). Manat was none other than Somnath

which is another name for Lord Shiva. One significant point to note

that Soma in Sanskrit means Moon and Nath means Lord. Thus the Kaba

itself was dedicated to the Moon God Somnath alias Shiv and the word

Somnath was corrupted to Manat. The famous Black Stone is none other

than the ShivLing of Makkeshwar alias Mecca. Lord Shiva is always shown

with a crescent Moon on his head and every Shiva temple is supposed to

have a sacred water spring representing the Ganges. The Crescent Moon

pinnacle of the Kaba and the Zamzam spring (actually Zamza from Ganga)

are irrefutable testaments to the Vedic origins of the Kaba.

 

 

 

Maqam-E-Ibrahim or more appropriately

the pedestal of Brahma. Muslims from all over the world pay homage to

this shrine. This shrine is actually the pedestal of Brahma. Notice

that

the word, Ibrahim is actually a corruption of the word, Brahma. The

octogonal grill which is a Vedic design, protects the holy footprints

which represent the start of the creation nearly 2000 million years

ago.

Before it was captured by the Muslims it was an international shrine of

the Vedic trinity.

 

In fact the names of the holiest of Muslim cities Mecca and Medina come

from the Sanskrit words Makha-Medini which means the land of

Fire-Worship. Even the most ancient names of these 2 cities were

Mahcorava- which came from Mahadeva (Lord Shiva) and Yathrabn - which

came from Yatra-Sthan (place of pilgrimage).

 

Islam came into being about 1372 years ago. It is well known that over

7500 years ago, at the time of the Mahabharat War, Kurus ruled the

world. The scions of that family administered the different regions.

Prophet Muhammed himself and his family were adherents of Vedic

culture.

The Encyclopedia Islamia admits as much when it says: "Muhammed's

grandfather and uncles were hereditary priests of the Kaba temple which

housed 360 idols!"

 

According to Arab traditions, Muhammad is a title. We do not know what

name his parents had given him. We do however know that the central

object of worship which survives at the Kaba today is a Shivling. That

was allowed to remain there because that was the faceless family deity

of Muhammad's family. One of the original names of Lord Shiv is Mahadev

(The Great God) therefore it is entirely possible Muhammad came from

Mahadev. This appears fairly certain because the Arabs still have a

Mahadevi sect. Moreover the title Mehdi of a Muslim chief is also a

malpronounciation of the term Mahadeva. According to Sanskrit etymology

the term Muhammad implies 'a person of great inspiration' - 'Mahan

Madah

yasya assau Muhammadah' In a hostile sense it also implies 'a person of

a proud and haughty temperament'.

 

The Qurayshi tribe into which Mohammed was born was particularly

devoted

to Allah and and the three children of the Moon God. Therefore when

Muhammad decided to spread his own Divine religion, he took innumerable

aspects of the daily Vedic culture that surrounded him and applied

them to suit the temperment and times of his era.

I agree with you, but you cannot prove anything new from this. It was already ststed in mahabharata about gandhara desa ( county of gandhari) which is in afganisthan today. It shows that afganisthan was a hiundu country. evidence are the old temples which recently damaged by taliban. In fact hinduism and sanskrit was the rerlegion and language of a large part of globe. But arabic language was derived from parsi. Better to co relate sankrit with parsi. also there is similarity between german and sanskrit.

Muslim freinds,

 

Let us embrace every religion as paths showed by one god and do not think that they are just faiths followed by a group of people. Let us not highlight our religion(hindu or muslim) as greatest as every religion is has its own significance.

Yes, I think the Hindu civilization was all around the world at one time. The number 5 incarnation of Vishnu or n°6 in modern Hinduism, the dwarf Vamana was granted the whole world I think because he performed some epic action and freed the earth from demon.

 

Also I am currently living in the West-Indies islands (colonized by french in the 17th century) ; it is part of America continent, people living there were Indians before. They used the word "Baba" to say "dad" and "Bibi" to say mother or woman. Maybe they were belonging to the Hindu civilization...

If different worlds are unrelated then why do tell us to artificially relate ourselves to Islam by telling us to gain knowledge from Islamic scholars ? No my friends all the infinite universes are all related (what to speak of Arabia and India which are on the same planet) , because the same Lord Vishnu (who is a plenary expansion of Krishna) creates and destroys them by His Supreme Will. And if you are talking about Islamic Scholars , you should read the above document carefully. Your Islamic scholars 1850 BCE have written poems glorifying the four Vedas and King Vikramaditya ! You think you can just close you eyes and say that you don't see the facts ! Do not follow a religion with no science , no philosophy , no history , no facts ... Even if you do not follow Sanatana Dharma , learn to respect it because it is the only revealed religion. I know everybody says this for the religion that they follow , but simply do a comparitive study with an open mind and the answer will come from within your soul...
