Sacred books of Hindus contain the history of universe. These books also contain foretelling of future events.
According to Sri Sri Ravi Shankar, a spiritual leader of Hindus, these books predicted about the coming of a spiritual teacher called Mohammed from a foreign land. In Bhavishya Puran: Prati Sarg, PartIII:3, 3, 5, it is written ‘his name will be Mahamad’.
Sri Sri Ravi Shankar says, ‘in one of the Puranas in India, Bhavishya Puranas, it is also mentioned that paighambar Mahamad will be born in the Middle East and would cleanse the people of corruption and bad habits. He will bring a new wave of devotion. This is mentioned thousands of years ago in the Hindu texts, he said.
