  • This isn't my religion, I'm trying to get an answer to rebut the claim. Seriously, I need advice from the hindu community to know what to say to this claim.

    I don't see how this question is too off topic as it is related to hinduism.

Yep, it's false the only Purana where Muhhamad is supposedly mentioned is Bhaishya Purana which is a later interpolation of that Purana. I will find verses when I get home and update the answer.

UPDATE: Couldn't find a full version of the PDF, however here are two sources: https://www.stephen-knapp.com/mohammed_is_he_really_predicted_in_bhavishya_purana.htm http://krizna.in/001-Epics/Bhavishya-Puran-English/Bhavishya-Puran-English.pdf

Shri Suta Gosvami said: In the dynasty of king Shalivahana, there were ten kings who went to the heavenly planets after ruling for over 500 years. Then gradually the morality declined on the earth. At that time Bhojaraja was the tenth of the kings on the earth. When he saw that the moral law of conduct was declining he went to conquer all the directions of his country with ten-thousand soldiers commanded by Kalidasa. He crossed the river Sindhu and conquered the Gandharas, mlecchas, shakas, Kashmiris, Naravas, and Sathas. He punished them and collected a large amount of wealth.

The authenticity of this Purana is to be questioned, however.)

UPDATE: The Sangram Purana may not even be real or be another name for the Bhaishya Purana and Tulsidas certainly didn't write about him. How interesting that someone likely fabricated this whole thing. The caption also seems to be referring to a different text.

    Because Muhhomad wasn't known and certainly wasn't worshipped in regards to Hinduism. Also Tulsidas was a Rama bhakta, not Muhhomad Bhakta. Let me find the actual verses to this text.
