Sample from forthcoming publication about Buddha’s prophecies

At this link, I am providing a few pages from the beginning and the end of a new edition of the section relating to Buddhist scriptures from the book Muhammad in World Scriptures. I had been working on it, on and off, for some years but have recently concentrated on it much more.

The author, Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi (d. 1977), has written in some places, and in fact he told me himself, that the objective of our Movement is to provide evidence on three points: (1) The existence and oneness of God, (2) the Quran being a revelation from God, and (3) the truth of the Holy Prophet Muhammad.

His whole book gives into the hands of Muslims arguments they can present to the world to both establish the truth of Islam and to create harmony between Muslims and followers of other religions.

If any Muslim wishes to revile or abuse us, it matters little to us. They can still use the results of our work.

1. A man said to the Holy Prophet:

فَقَالَ الرَّجُلُ آمَنْتُ بِمَا جِئْتَ بِهِ، وَأَنَا رَسُولُ مَنْ وَرَائِي مِنْ قَوْمِي

“I believe in what you have been sent with, and I am a messenger (rasul) of my people whom I have left behind.” (Bukhari, hadith 63)

2. A man was sent to Abu Bakr with a command from the Holy Prophet. The man was called the messenger.

فَأَتَاهُ الرَّسُولُ

“So the messenger (rasul) came to him (Abu Bakr)” (Bukhari, hadith 678).

3. Regarding the same incident:

فَأَتَاهُ الرَّسُولُ فَقَالَ إِنَّ رَسُولَ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَأْمُرُكَ أَنْ تُصَلِّيَ بِالنَّاسِ‏.‏

“So the messenger (rasul) came to him and said: The Messenger of Allah commands you to lead people in prayer” (Bukhari, hadith 687).

إِذَا رَسُولُ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ صلى الله عليه وسلم يَأْتِينِي

“when the messenger (rasul) of the messenger (rasul) of Allah came to me” (Bukhari, hadith 4418).

6. When the Holy Prophet called various clans of the Quraish to gather to listen to him:

أَرْسَلَ رَسُولاً لِيَنْظُرَ مَا هُوَ

Those who could not come “sent a messenger (rasul) to see what it was” (Bukhari, hadith 4770).

7. When the Holy Prophet asked Mu‘adh ibn Jabal certain questions and was pleased with his replies, he said:

الْحَمْدُ لِلَّهِ الَّذِي وَفَّقَ رَسُولَ رَسُولِ اللَّهِ لِمَا يُرْضِي رَسُولَ اللَّهِ

“Praise be to Allah Who granted the messenger (rasul) of the messenger (rasul) of Allah that which pleases the messenger (rasul) of Allah” (Abu Dawud, book 25: ‘Judges’, ch. 11, hadith 3592)
