Prophet Muhammed Enlightened Being

Query: Prophet Muhammed truly Enlightened Being... You say that the prophet Muhammed was a truly enlightened being. Then how would you explain the fact that he had fought many wars, killed many men and had numerous wives. Also, wasn't he a caravan raider? Surely all these acts go against the morals of enlightened beings such as Jesus, Krishna, Mahavira and the Buddha.


Kaivalya Jnani:
Every single man god like Mahavira, Gautama Buddha, Jesus Christ, prophet Mohammed... and for that matter many other enlightened souls... were not the same as they were when they finally reached the stage of enlightenment. One is never born a man god. Born a normal human being... a commoner... one indulging in spirituality to the core... finally reaches the end of journey... the 8.4 millionth manifestation... When human beings gain enlightenment (kaivalya jnana) and finally salvation (moksha)!


As per your writing... whatever phases of life prophet Mohammed passed through... the stage of enlightenment finally dawned upon him when he sat in a cave closed from all sides. He wanted to die... for there was nowhere else to go! Upon seeing a tiny spider attempting umpteenth time to cross all barriers of life and finally succeeding in climbing to the top... the wisdom dawned upon Prophet Mohammed and he became enlightened!

Enlightenment is not something that can be thrust upon one. The moment all dross within one removes completely... the liberated soul atman reaches the stage of enlightenment (kaivalya jnana). This is the last stage of wisdom that can be reached. Beyond enlightenment... the man god having reached the stage of salvation moksha enters the kingdom of God (aka Vaikunth in Hinduism)... a point of no return!

Valmiki... the writer of the Sacred Hindu epic Ramayana... was a renowned dacoit! That was in the initial stages of life. Sometimes very simple events change the course of life altogether! Some events in the life of Valmiki made him abandon the wrongful path. The same happens with many people. That does not mean we continue abhorring the past of a human being.


Tell me... of all the things why human beings abruptly change their course of life. It never happens with everyone. Such events are rare! Yet, one in millions or billions sets an example for the society at large. Such human beings become the inner strength of society... the much-needed guide posts for the ailing mankind!

Whatever is contained in the Koran... the Holy Scripture of Islamic Dharma is pure Wisdom... but the interpretations as of today may be distorted. The society presently is passing through the worst phase in life... the Dark Age... the metal age! Distorting the existing facts... the Sacred Wisdom has become a practice. Unable to fathom the depths of the original Wisdom... the distorted interpretations rule the roost.

We must never blame the enlightened masters for the diluted interpretations available today. In the present materialistic age... what more can mankind expect of human beings when it has become difficult to distinguish human beings from animals! World over... adharma (lawlessness) is baring its fangs... the only remedy being doing our best in the present circumstances.


The prime message of every Sacred Scripture is... every individual human being must do thy best... the best in the present circumstances! It is only then the society sustains the onslaught of barbarians... those who interpret the Sacred Quran wrongly owing to their vested interests and materialistic wants.
