Muslims unable to find even one of 123,974 missing prophets ......... 14 centuries later!!!


The Holy Quran

"Lo! We inspire thee as We inspired Noah and the Prophets after him, as We inspired Abraham and Ishmael and Isaac and Jacob and the tribes, and Jesus and Job and Jonah and Aaron and Solomon, and as We imparted unto David the Psalms. And messengers We have mentioned unto thee before and messengers We have not mentioned unto thee; and Allah spake directly unto Moses."Qur'n 5:163-164

According to Abdullah Yusuf Ali," Beginning with Adam, Islamic tradition asserts, God sends 124,000 prophets at various times and to every community to remind people of their obligation to the one and only sovereign Lord and warn them against heedlessness and disobedience. The Qur'n declares, athere is not a nation but that a warner was sent to it' (Qur'n 26:207).

Since Muslims are still in the dark about the 123,974 missing prophets, 14 centuries later, perhaps help should be rendered. Maybe they should check with ordinary Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and Taoists. Maybe they will begin hearing names like Shri Krishna, Radha, Rama, Sita, Laxsman, Adi Shankaracharya, Patanjali, Valmiki, Agasthya, Bharadwaja, Madhwacharya.

Wouldn't Muslims be delighted to know that?


Islam and Other Religions
Prof. Shahul Hameed
Mar. 28, 2006

[Say: We believe in God, and in what has been revealed to us and what was revealed to Abraham, Ishmael, Isaac, Jacob, and the Tribes, and in (the Books) given to Moses, Jesus, and the Prophets from their Lord: We make no distinction between one and another.] (Aal Imran 3:84)

Islam teaches the respect of all beliefs.

As is borne out by this command of God in the Qur'n, Muslims must believe in all the prophets of God previously sent to humanity. This means that they are not permitted to show any disrespect to any prophet or to the religion he taught to his followers. To a Muslim, religious belief must come out of a person's free choice, as God has also commanded not to use any kind of coercion in the matter of religion:

[Let there be no compulsion in religion, truth stands out clear from error.] (Al-Baqarah 2:256)

It is the conviction of a religion's adherents, not the compulsion they can impose on others, that establishes its moral force on earth. This was a principle evident in the life and practice of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be on him) as well as the Constitution of Madinah which he drew up with the multi-religious community of Madinah.

This document guaranteed the freedom of worship to all religious communities. This was the spirit of the Qur'n that shines into the hearts of all its perceptive readers: the spirit of tolerance and understanding. Allah says in the Qur'n that He has made people into nations and tribes so that they can know and deal with each other in an equal temper of kindness and generosity:

[O humankind! We created you from a single pair of a male and female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know and deal with each other in kindness (not that you may despise each other). Verily the most honored of you in the sight of God (is he who is) the most righteous of you, and God is Knower, Aware.] (Al-Hujurat 49:13)

The above verse emphasizes the point that in Islam there is no place for intolerance, prejudice, or bigotry based on color, race, nationality or any such considerations. This all-encompassing tolerance of Islam applies to all elements of life and all affairs of Muslims.

The Muslim's acceptance of the Jews and Christians (referred to in the Qur'n as People of the Book) as authentic religious communities is made clear:

[And dispute not with the People of the Book, except with means better (than mere disputation), unless it be with those of them who inflict wrong and injury.] (Al-'Ankabut 29:46).

This verse tells Muslims that they should take all measures to avoid dispute, anger or other negative feelings between themselves and others.

Islam and Other Religions - Prof. Shahul Hameed




To the Ummah,

i have realized that Muslims are yet unable to find even a single of the 123,974 prophets missing for the last 14 centuries! Yes, it may be hard to believe but true that till today so many missing prophets, sages and seers cannot be found by the ulema and ummah. Out of the 124,000 prophets that Islamic traditions asserts were sent by God Almighty, they only know the names of the 26 mentioned in the Quran.

Why has God sent prophets?

Islam teaches that God has sent prophets to humanity, in different times and places, to communicate His message. Since the beginning of time, God has sent His guidance through these chosen people. They were human beings who taught the people around them about faith in One Almighty God, and how to walk on the path of righteousness. Some prophets also revealed God's Word through books of revelation.

What message have the prophets brought?

Muslims believe that all prophets gave guidance and instruction to their people about how to properly worship God and live their lives. Since God is One, His message has been one and the same throughout time. In essence, all prophets taught the message of Islam - to find peace in your life through submission to the One Almighty Creator; to believe in God and to follow His guidance.

What does the Qur'n say about the prophets?

"The Messenger believes in what has been revealed to him from his Lord, as do the men of faith. Each one of them believes in God, His angels, His books, and His Messengers. They say: 'We make no distinction between one and another of His Messengers.' And they say: 'We hear, and we obey. We seek Thy forgiveness, Our Lord, and to Thee is the end of all journeys.'" (Al-Baqarah, 2:285)

We did aforetime send messengers before thee: Of them there are some whose story, We have related to thee. 4454
And some whose story We have not related to thee.
surah 40:78 Al Mu'nim (The Believer)

"4454. Cf. 4:164. Allah sent Messengers of His Truth to every people. There are some whose names are known to us through the Holy Qur'n, but there are a large number whose names are not made known to us through that medium. We must recognise the Truth wherever we find it."

Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n, Amana Corporation, 1989.)

We did send messengers before thee, and appointed for them wives and children:
And it was never the part of a messenger to bring a Sign except as Allah permitted (or commanded).
For each period is a Book (revealed).

surah 13:38 Al Ra'd (The Thunder)
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n, Amana Corporation, 1989.)


"Beginning with Adam, Islamic tradition asserts, God sends 124,000 prophets at various times and to every community to remind people of their obligation to the one and only sovereign Lord and warn them against heedlessness and disobedience. The Qur'n declares, athere is not a nation but that a warner was sent to it' (Q. 26:207)"

Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n, Amana Corporation, 1989.)

"The Qur'n mentions by name, however, twenty-six prophets and messengers, most of whom are biblical personages. These include Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon, Elijah, Jonah, John the Baptist, Jesus, and others. The Qur'n also mentions three Arabian prophets: Shu'yb (possibly Jethro, Moses's father-in-law), Hud, and Salih."

Mahmoud M. Ayoub, World Religions: The Islamic Tradition
(World Religions, edited by Willard G. Oxtoby, Oxford University Press Canada, 1996, p. 363.)

What about the numerous missing prophets?

That leaves 123,974 unaccounted for i.e. 124,000 - 26 = 123,074 missing prophets. For more than 1,400 years the Islamic scholars and theologians have been searching for these very large number of Allah's Messengers, but yet have been unable to find them. Although they were sent to Earth the overwhelming majority of His Messengers cannot be found — this is preposterous, to say the least! Who were they? Where are they? When did they come? What did they do? What do they look like? What are their names? Who know these Messengers, their wives and children? Are their names mentioned in the holy scriptures of Hinduism, Buddhism and Sikhism? Is it possible that ordinary, even illiterate Hindus, Buddhists or Sikhs can name scores off the cuff?

The learned Islamic scholars do not have a 'clue' and are in fact still 'waiting' to locate and identify them. A billion Muslims may also be professing to be 'searching' alongside, but until today not even a single Messenger that was sent aforetime has been found! The search for these Missing Messengers must be one of the greatest acts of hypocrisy in the annals of Islamic history! We are talking about a colossal number - 123,974 to be precise.

"The Koran did not see revelation as canceling out the messages and insights of previous prophets, but instead stressed the continuity of the religious experience of mankind. It is important to stress this point because tolerance is not a virtue that many Western people today would feel inclined to attribute to Islam. Yet from the start, Muslims saw revelation in less exclusive terms than either Jews or Christians. The intolerance that many people condemn in Islam today does not always spring from a rival vision of God but from quite another source: Muslims are intolerant of injustice, whether this is committed by rulers of their own — like Shah Muhammad Reza Pahlavi of Iran — or by the powerful Western countries. The Koran does not condemn other religious traditions as false or incomplete but shows that each new prophet as conforming and continuing the insights of his predecessors. The Koran teaches that God had sent messengers to every people on the face of the earth: Islam tradition says there had been 124,000 such prophets, a symbolic number suggesting infinitude. Thus the Koran repeatedly points out that it is not bringing a message that is essentially new and that Muslims must emphasize their kinship with the other religions:

Do not argue with the followers of earlier revelation otherwise than in the most kindly manner — unless it be such of them as are set on evil doing — and say: "We believe in that which has been bestowed upon us, as well as that which has been bestowed upon you: for our God and your God is one and the same, and it is unto him that we [all] surrender ourselves.

The Koran naturally singles out apostles who were familiar to the Arabs — like Abraham, Noah, Moses and Jesus, who were the prophets of the Jews and Christians. It also mentions Hud and Salih, who had been sent to the ancient Arab peoples of Midan and Thamood. Today Muslims insist that if Muhammad had known about Hindus and Buddhists, he would have included their religious sages."

Karen Armstrong, A History of God
(Karen Armstrong, A History of God, Ballantine Books, 1993, p. 152)

"All these great (Muslim) saints were respected by Shiites but still they could not transcend the limits of religiosity. So they also became extremely fanatic. Firstly, they would not see to another religion where they had saints. They would not respect the saints who belonged to another religion... . They also did not realize that there saints who are not so-called Muslims."

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi
Shri Fatima Puja, Geneva, Switzerland — August 14, 1988

Did even a single Muslim search for the missing prophets?

Why are the Islamic scholars, theologians, and their billion believers still completely in the dark in their 'earnest' search for the missing Messengers, despite looking at every nook and cranny of Earth for 14 centuries? Why have they failed so miserably in this modern information age?"Today Muslims insist that if Muhammad had known about Hindus and Buddhists, he would have included their religious sages."What are we to understand from this statement? Are we to believe that Prophet Muhammad, the most perfect human according to Muslims, was not so perfect in as far as geography and history is concerned? Do we conclude that Prophet Muhammad did not know about Hindus and Buddhists because Allah is just as ignorant! Then what are we to understand of this verse:

To Allah belongs the East and the West; Whithersoever ye turn, there is Allah's countenance. For Allah is All-Embracing, All-Knowing.

surah 2:115 Al Baqarah (The Heifer)
Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n, Amana Corporation, 1989.

We did send messengers before thee, and appointed for them wives and children:
And it was never the part of a messenger to bring a Sign except as Allah permitted. For each period is a Book (revealed.)
Allah doth blot out or confirm what He pleaseth: With Him is the Mother of the Book.

surah 13:38-39 Al Ra'd (The Thunder)
(Abdullah Yusuf Ali, The Holy Qur'n, Amana Corporation, 1989.)


What help can be rendered to Muslims?

Since Muslims are still in the dark about the 123,974 missing prophets, 14 centuries later, perhaps help should be rendered. Maybe they should check with ordinary Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs and Taoists. Maybe they will begin hearing names like Shri Krishna, Radha, Rama, Sita, Laxsman, Adi Shankaracharya, Patanjali, Valmiki, Agasthya, Bharadwaja, Madhwacharya. Mahavira, Ramanujacharya, Goswami Tulsidas, Chaitanya Mahaprabhu, Thirumoolar, Atri, Vashishtha, Vishvamitra, Vyasa, Vasishta, Jamadagni, Kashyapa, Brahmarshi Vishwamitra, narada, Buddha, Pindola Bharadvaja, Ajita, Subinda, Kalika, Vajraputra, Bhadra, Kanakavatsa, Kanaka Bhadra, Nakula, Rahula, Chudapanthaka, Angaja, Panthaka, Nagasena, Jivaka, Vanavasin, Tao, Confucius, Dong Zhongshu, Zhu Xi, Zhuang Zi, Lv Dongbing, Zhang Sanfeng, Xuan Zang, Jian Zhen, Bodhidharma, Socrates, Raja Janaka, Nanak, Angad Dev, Amar Das, Ram Das, Arjan Dev, Tegh Bahadur, Gobind,..." (A thousand names can be easily provided. 100,000 would just require some midnight-oil.)

And yes, the Qur'n confirms that"For each period is a Book"
(revealed) too! Wouldn't Muslims be delighted to know that? Maybe they should confirm with the Vedas, Puranas, Mahabharata, Bhagavad Gita, Shri Lalita Sahasranama, Dhammapada, Pali Canon, Lalitavistara, Tao Te Ching, Sri Guru Granth Sahib, and other Holy Scriptures. Maybe they should ask fellow beings—Hindus, Buddhists, Taoists, Jains, Sikhs—if they know anything about these Missing Messengers and Holy Scriptures. Maybe these Islamic scholars may have overlooked all these suggestions, century after century. Maybe none of these simple solutions ever crossed their minds as ignorance is bliss.

But since in this modern age we have the evidence and means to identify well over 123,974 prophets, seers and sages mentioned in the holy scriptures of Hinduism, Buddhism, Sikhism and Taoism, are Muslims interested? Does the Ummah want to know the identity and teachings of the missing 123,974 missing prophets of Islam, or the Holy Scriptures? i guess not.

regards to all,

"The most prevalent expression of worship comes as devotion to God and the Gods. Hindus believe in one Supreme Being. The plurality of Gods are perceived as divine creations of that one Being. So, Hinduism has one supreme God, but it also has an extensive hierarchy of many, many Gods. Still there are many who view the Gods as mere symbols, representations of forces or mind strata, or as various personifications generated as a projection of man's mind onto an impersonal pure Beingness. In reality, the Gods are individual soul beings, and down through the ages ordinary men and women, great saints and sages, prophets and mystics in all cultures have inwardly seen, heard and been profoundly influenced by these superconscious inner plane beings."

Satguru Sivaya Subramuniyaswami, November 1998
(Himalayan Academy, 1998, www.hinduismtoday.kauai.hi.us/welcome.html)




"This need of wider intellectual enlightenment concerning both the nature of the world and its correct relation to the mystical view of man, in short, Truth in all its fullness, caused me to look around and consider where else it might be satisfied. I knew several of the answers of the West, knew too that they were often excellent as far as they went, but they did not go far enough... . I knew something of the Western philosophies, admirably reasoned and laboriously worked out as they were, but their tremendous conflict of opinion largely cancelled out each other's value and left the student bewildered. I knew however that the forest thinkers of Asiaitic countries had leisurely pondered this problem long before the first city Greeks had begun to ponder it in Europe. Moreover there was this vital difference that whereas the Western thinkers usually claimed that nobody had discovered ultimate truth and that human limitations were so narrow that nobody was likely to discover it, the authors of old Asiatic books claimed that ultimate truth was certainly discoverable and that a few sages had definitely known it....

I felt therefore that if hope lay anywhere it lay in Asia, the continent where the world's most renowned religious, mystic and philosophical teachers from Jesus to Confucius had been born. It needed but slightly more consideration to narrow the search to India because I knew from wide study and personal travel that all the Asiatic lands, like Tibet, China, and Japan had directly or indirectly derived their philosophic knowledge, yoga systems and religious speculations from this single fountain-head."
