In his website, Zakir Naik claims that the name Allah appears in Upanishads:

"Allah" in Rigveda Book 2 Hymn I verse II
Even in the Rigveda which is the most sacred scripture of the Hindus, one of the attributes given to God Almighty in Book no 2 Hymn no I verse II, is ‘Ila’ which if pronounced properly is the same as Allah.

"Allo Upanishad":
Amongst the various Upanishads one of the Upanishad is named as ‘Allo’ Upanishad in which God is referred to as "Allah" several times.

Which verse and upanishad is he referring to ?

  • This is oldest Upnishad of all time which directly jumped from sky to a human hand, that human was noone but Zakir Naik only. @ram – TheLittleNaruto Nov 14 '18 at 9:12

    @TheLittleNaruto, I recently had divine revelation called QURAM, where all instances of Allah are replaced with Ram. – ram Nov 14 '18 at 9:13
  • :D @ram But seriously Man! You're better than this; I mean don't ask such question. It doesn't add any value to the site. – TheLittleNaruto Nov 14 '18 at 9:19

    @Sarvabhouma, i'm sure these questions will be deleted in a couple of days, but I want to draw attention to other users too, not just mods. if sv can bombard the site by referring to random articles and youtube videos (just go through his list of questions), and claim that he is simply being 'factual', so can others, and it trashes the site quality. – ram Nov 14 '18 at 9:33

    @ram I think you should ask reference from vedas only – Krishna Shweta Nov 15 '18 at 6:45

Here you can get 1908 edition. https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/3b/Allopanishad_in_Satyarth_Prakash.pdf

English Translation:

I take refuge in our Allah [La, to perish, and alla, eternal] who protects Mitra [sun] and Varuna [the god of water]. There is but one God [Illelle]; the king, Varuna, again takes refuge (in him). Everything is God; sun and stars. Everything is God; Varuna, the Sun, the illuminator. The Great Breath, the Lord, is the Sacrificer. The Lord is the Sacrificer. Allah is the first and best, the highest; Omnipresent; Highest of all Gods. He is only One; ever remaining. By sacrifice is Allah to be propitiated. Allah is sun, moon and all stars. Allah is (the God) of Rishis and all other deities, and of Indra, the first Maya [primordial matter] and the ether. Allah is in the earth and in heaven and in multifarious forms. Everything is Allah. Everything is Allah and everything is He. Om is Allah. Everything is He. By nature eternal. Atharvan [the Rishi] bows down to such. Give us water, cattle, siddhis, and things that live in water, and Phut [a mantra]. The Slayer of enemies. Hum, Hrim. Nothing but Allah; nothing but Allah.

    It is of course a fake Upanishad. Akbar ordered a converted Brahmin to write Allopanishad. This book was then fraudulently inserted in genuine copies of Atharva Veda. Until early 20th century, many Atharvaveda manuscripts had Allopanishad. Akbar's dirty trick almost succeeded. Many manuscripts of Atharvaveda carried Allopanishad until 20th century.. It also had a chapter proclaiming the supremacy of Allah and the religion of Islam. Swami Dayananda Saraswati started the movement to purge Allopanishad. This fraudulent Allopanishad was promoted by Gandhi who certified it as one of 108 Upanishads – user16618 Nov 14 '18 at 10:25
