Knowing the Universe

Buddha has prophesized that the Buddha to come will know this universe well and will be knowledgeable. Now let us see if Muhammad met this criterion:

Sahih Bukhari  

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 537:

The Prophet said "If a house fly falls in the drink of anyone of you, he should dip it (in the drink), for one of its wings has a disease and the other has the cure for the disease."

What kind of science is this? Is this the knowledge of one who knows the universe? You can see from this link that house flies cause several diseases:


Volume 4, Book 54, Number 538:

Allah's Apostle said, "A prostitute was forgiven by Allah, because, passing by a panting dog near a well and seeing that the dog was about to die of thirst, she took off her shoe, and tying it with her head-cover she drew out some water for it. So, Allah forgave her because of that."

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 539:

The Prophet said, "Angels do not enter a house witch has either a dog or a picture in it."

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 540:

Allah's Apostle ordered that the dogs should be killed.

Volume 4, Book 54, Number 541:

Allah's Apostle said, "If somebody keeps a dog, he loses one Qirat (of the reward) of his good deeds everyday, except if he keeps it for the purpose of agriculture or for the protection of livestock."  

You can see this man at one point of time say’s that Allah forgave a woman who saved a dog from thirst. It shows as though Allah and Muhammad love dogs. But in later hadiths he expresses his hatred of dogs and says having a dog will make you lose reward from Allah! What kind of logic does this man hold to be called as “Knowing the Universe”?


Leader, Master of Angels and Mortals

Muhammad was leader of a clan of tribes at medina who willed to adopt Islam.  Calling him master of angels and mortals is like committing blasphemy against Islam or going against the Qur’an.

The Qur’an says the following:

Then are they (humans) sent back to Allah, their Master, the True one; now surely His is the judgment and He is swiftest in taking account.

And the Egyptian who bought him said to his wife: Give him an honorable abode, maybe he will be useful to us, or we may adopt him as a son. And thus did We establish Yusuf in the land and that We might teach him the interpretation of sayings; and Allah is the master of His affair, but most people do not know.

Master of the Day of Judgment.(Allah)  

The Qur’an also mentions many a times that Allah is the creator and the master of Angels, Men, Jinns, etc. Now Muhammad was not a master to angels or are we supposed to assume that he was a partner of Allah? Muhammad was not the master of mortals. There are nearly 4.5 billion kuffars on this earth. The Qur’an claims Muhammad to be just a messenger of GOD and told Muhammad not to interfere in affairs of men as control is with ALLAH. So, how can Dr.Zakir Naik call Muhammad Master of Angels and Mortals? Absurd like always!  


“..same eternal truths which I have taught you..”

Did Muhammad ever teach the same things that Buddha taught? Lets have a brief comparison:  

Religion Islam Buddhism
Good and Evil What God loves is good. What god hates is evil. God created evil. Good and Evil are illusory categorizations of phenomena based upon the human predilection for passion, aggression, and ignorance. The correct and desirable values are clarity and appropriateness to context.
The existence and nature of God

God is one being. He created the universe. He is Good.

He will judge the world, reward the good, and punish the evil. One must believe in ALLAH and his messengers and go to Hajj and offer salat.


Buddha maintained 'noble silence' on the question of the existence of 'God'. Buddha said the question was immaterial to his simple teachings on the roots of anquish and how to end it. Furthurmore, speculation on such a subject was a waste of time.

Several..schools of Buddhism, particularly the Tibetan schools, have as part of their dogma...dieties..gods and goddesses. These refer to any being who is higher spiritually or materially than an ordinary human being and should not to be confused with the general conception in theistic religions of omnipotent power..God, Jehovah, Allah.
Salvation Submit utterly and completely to the will of God and trust utterly and completely in His Will. Take the writings of Muhammed as absolute guidance to correct moral action. Your reward will be an eternal life of God-induced bliss. The reward is admission to heaven with 72 virgins and fruits and rivers of wine. Salvation is liberation from enslavement to the cycle of passion, aggression and ignorance. The means to this end is naked confrontation of the bare phenomenological facts of your existence. The obstacle is the human tendency to distraction in terms of passion, aggression, and ignorance. The correct response is practice at remaining clear (meditation). The reward is the capacity to see clearly and choose appropriately in any situation, thus being liberated from the domination of passion, aggression, and ignorance.

 You can see for yourself, there is no similarity between the two schools of thoughts. So, Buddha’s words that the maitreya will teach his teachings is not applicable to Muhammad.
