Dalam agama Buddha, perkataan Buddha bermaksud sage yang dapat diertikan sebagai ‘seorang yang amat bijaksana’ atau ‘dia yang mendapat petunjuk’. Kadangkala istilah ini digunakan dengan maksud nabi. Gautama Buddha, pengasas agama Buddha pernah menceritakan kedatangan seorang Antim Buddha pada akhir zaman. Antim bermaksud yang terakhir, lantas Antim Buddha bermaksud nabi yang terakhir.

Di saat kematian Gautama Buddha, beliau memberitahu perkara ini kepada
pengikut setianya yang bernama Ananda, “O’ Nanda, I am not the first Buddha in this world, nor am I the last. In time, there will appear a Buddha in this world, who will give the teachings of truth and charity. His disposition will be pure and holy. His heart will be clean. He will possess knowledge and wisdom. He will be the leader and guide of all men. He will teach the truth, as I have taught the truth. He will give the world a way of life which will be pure and at the same time complete. O’ Nanda, his name will be MAITREYA. (Daripada Gospel of Buddha oleh Carus halaman 217)

Berlandaskan perkataan Buddha ini, dapat dirumuskan beberapa perkara berhubung sifat utusan akhir zaman mengikut agama Buddha iaitu:

Beliau adalah seorang manusia.
Beliau adalah seorang yang berperibadi yang amat mulia.
Beliau datang sebagai pemimpin bagi manusia.
Beliau juga seorang pembimbing yang mengajar kebenaran kepada semua.
Beliau diutus kepada seluruh manusia dan tidak hanya kepada kelompok-kelompok tertentu.
Ajaran yang dibawanya adalah suatu ajaran yang lengkap.
Beliau adalah MAITREYA.

Mengikut ajaran agama Buddha, utusan akhir zaman dikenali sebagai Maitreya. Dalam majalah The Leader edisi 16 Oktober 1930, disebutkan perkataan Maitreya bermaksud Merciful ataupun Pembawa Rahmat. Perkara yang sama juga disebutkan oleh Warren dalam Muhammad in the Buddhist Scriptures.

Kesemua ini selari dengan keperibadian Nabi Muhammad (Sallallah-hualaihiwassallam) kerana beliau adalah seorang pembawa rahmat kepada seluruh alam seperti yang disebutkan dalam Quran, “Tidak kami utus kamu (Muhammad) melainkan sebagai pembawa rahmat kepada seluruh alam.” (Surah al-Anbiyak ayat 107)

This is a complete absurdity claim.

One mention of the prophecy of Maitreya is prophesied in the Sanskrit text, the Maitreyavyākaraṇa (The Prophecy of Maitreya), stating that gods, men, and other beings will worship Maitreya; it implies that he is a teacher of trance sadhana:

"will lose their doubts, and the torrents of their cravings will be cut off: free from all misery they will manage to cross the ocean of becoming; and, as a result of Maitreya's teachings, they will lead a holy life. No longer will they regard anything as their own, they will have no possession, no gold or silver, no home, no relatives! But they will lead the holy life of chastity under Maitreya's guidance. They will have torn the net of the passions, they will manage to enter into trances, and theirs will be an abundance of joy and happiness, for they will lead a holy life under Maitreya's guidance." (Trans. in Conze 1959:241)

Now, look at what Muslims had been doing throughout the history Islam. Some example of Muslim's good deeds however not the least i.e. Killing, conquering other clans, massacre, suicidal bomber, terrorism... The Maitreya mentioned in this absurd blog is nothing near to the personality of Mr. Muhammad.

Kindly do simply link the saint of another religion the notorious Muhammad.

Added text, excerpt from Dr. Danial's website:

Killing for God

I hear that argument quite often from radical secularists. It bears, to be sure, some truth. Yes, we humans have killed each other throughout history during holy wars of all sorts. But, alas, in modern times, as we stopped confronting each other for God, we quickly found other reasons to battle for. Irreligious ideologies such as nationalism, fascism and communism have resulted in the deaths of hundreds of millions of innocents throughout the past two centuries. Actually the modern secular cruelty has reached such incredible heights that no major religion ever imagined. Hitler’s gas chambers and Pol Pot’s killing fields were unprecedented evils in human history.

Therefore it is obvious that men can kill each without appealing to God. Perhaps there is something in human nature to fight and, if necessary, to kill for whatever it deems valuable. That might be religion, but also ideology, tribe, nation, and, of course, simply wealth and power.

The other point that anti-religious evangelists fail to see is the contribution of the great faiths to humanity. The official rhetoric of radical Enlightenment tells about nothing but the “darkness” of the faith-driven middle ages - as its Turkish version keeps on bashing the Ottoman times - but the truth is much more complex. As historian Rodney Stark unveils in his tell-tale-titled book, “For the Glory of God: How Monotheism Led to Reformations, Science, Witch-Hunts, and the End of Slavery,” the Judeo-Christian heritage has contributed to not just some nasty episodes but also many significant advances in the history of Western civilization.

The same is true for Islamdom, too: It was thanks to the message of Prophet Mohammed that tribal Arabs created a world empire under which arts and sciences flourished. Under Islam’s golden age, between the seventh and 12th centuries, the Middle East became the world’s center of sophistication, and created or preserved much of the classical knowledge that the West would later embrace. Islam also enlightened nomadic nations such as the Turks, who had little, if any, trace of science, philosophy, literature or architecture in their pre-Islamic times. The majesty of the Ottoman Empire would definitely not come into being had the Turks remained as pagan hordes.

One does not need to be a believer to see these great contributions of religions to mankind, or to appreciate the relief given by religious charities to millions of poor and needy people around the world. One just needs to objective. Yet that is just what the radical atheists lack. Take Richard Dawkins for example, the world’s most famous atheist evangelist who notoriously calls religion a “virus” and faith-based education “child abuse.” The title of his documentary aired on the UK’s Channel 4 summarizes how he sees religion: “Root of All Evil?” The question mark is apparently an editorial touch, and the content only reflects Dawkins’s zealotry.

Aku rasa dah okey dengan Islam, Nabi Muhammad dan Allah yg aku pegang selama ini.Tak payah nak relate dengan mana-mana tokoh agama lampau spt Buddha, Lao Tze dll. Jika mereka open minded dan buat kajian tentang Islam dan diberi hidayah maka diorang akan memeluk Islam. Tiada paksaan dalam agama. Segala maklumat dah ada tentang Islam dalam pelbagai bentuk. Keindahan islam untuk dihayati dan bukan untuk pertelingkahan.
