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 ?

    @TheLittleNaruto, I recently had divine revelation called QURAM, where all instances of Allah are replaced with Ram.

    @ram Please don't just ask some questions like this. Just ask if you want to know an answer a question or you want to share the knowledge you have by asking and answering it. I think you are ask better than this. Some people just talk what they want to. Meta is the better place to raise a concern about opinion based questions. People who know what's opinion based or not can say there (perhaps Community Managers too). Nov 14, 2018 at 9:31

    @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.

    I said Community managers (They are the highest moderators on SE). These questions don't got deleted. Because there are people who vote to balance the downvotes any type of low quality question and may write answers too. If there are questions with positive score, it won't be deleted. Moreover, asking low quality questions will affect your profile and reputation (not only score) too. Nov 14, 2018 at 10:19

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

    @RaRa you could add your comment in your answer which proves that this is just a fake verse added. So that both question and answer can become comeplete. Nov 18, 2018 at 16:06

Allo upnishad is a fake upanishad created by islamic invaders of india to misguide believers of Sanatana dharma and give them positive impression about Islam; during Akbar's time he made brahmins in his kingdom to write a upnishad to praise and confuse followers of Real Vedhas and Upnishads, check the details here : https://indictales.com/2019/12/03/allopanishad-written-under-the-patronage-of-akbar-is-not-a-genuine-upanishad/

  • Links are fabricated. Upanishads contain many slokas when recited with concentration yield good benefits to human. Aug 25, 2020 at 10:54
  • How does that prove authenticity of allopnishadh ? While Upnishads are way way before Islam and so alla came in to being? Aug 26, 2020 at 10:09
