Some Muslim leaders say Lord Shiva was the first messenger of Islam

Is it true or just a rumor being spread amongst the people?

    For the Lord Shiva - or SadaShiv This is like the Third and most essential power IN GOD Sentence Destroyer When the world starts at that time Tamasa Guna was shiva and Aadi Shakti creates this whole world. So their part in this universe as Destroyer, and Generally if Muslims worship for Shiva is a Really Good thing for them. And if they are saying Shiva is first messenger. So this thing goes like if the world starts with them so they are the first messenger to whole of world not for some community. – hemanjosko Apr 18 '16 at 18:28

    False. Utter false. Don't believe this. Shiva is PARAMESWARA which means Supreme Lord. So, as prophet whom should he praise. However, Rudra, his destructive aspect, incarnated as sages to teach Yoga techniques in every transition times of Dwapara and Kali Yuga. He only teaches Yoga techniques to realize self and to free people from cycle of birth and death. – The Destroyer Apr 19 '16 at 2:25

    Hmmm...turning over the coin, maybe Islam was a messenger of Lord Shiva? All religions lead to the One. – Swami Vishwananda Apr 19 '16 at 4:06

    There is no factual basis in this, these are failed attempts at digestion of Hinduism by Islam. – Amit Saxena Apr 19 '16 at 10:04

First messenger of Islam is Adam, the first human being. God created Adam first and then from him Eve and from this pair we all emerged so we are all like members of a big family. Thus, Islam preaches universal brotherhood.

“O Mankind! We have created you from a single pair of male and female, and made you in to nations and tribes, that you may know one another (not that you may hate each other). Surely the most honourable of you in the sight of Allah is (he, who is) the most righteous of you….” [Quran 49:13]

One mufti mohammad of luknow I guess commented that Adam-Eve are actually Shiva-parvati. Not sure if he wanted to gain political benefit from that comment or wanted to bring peace between Hindu-Muslims but this comment is not correct.

As far as I know Shiva first appeared in Vedas as Rudra, one of the 33 devatas. Later he appears extensively in Hindu mythological books like in Shiva puranam etc.,

Thus equating Adam and Shiva is nothing but intellectual fraud. We should present scriptures as they are without such manipulations.
