The Last Prophet Buddha Continue..

Surah Ghafir 40:78.  And, indeed We have sent Messengers before you (O Muhammad): of some of them We have related to you their story.  And of some We have not related to you their story, .......
          “Around the Ka’bah lies the graves of three hundred prophets.” (Sahih Muslim) There are many Prophets that we do not know.   We have learnt the story of Prophet Ibrahim, Musa, Isa (A.s.) and how they are related to Prophet Muhammad (Sal).  Though we could not find any story about Buddha in the Quran but consider this:'I am not the first Buddha [ awakened one ] who has come upon the Earth, nor will I be the last. In due time another Buddha will rise in the world, a holy one, a supreme enlightened one, endowed with auspicious wisdom embracing the universe, an incomparable leader of men.  He will proclaim a righteous life wholly perfect and pure, such as I now proclaim. His disciples will number many thousands, while mine number many hundreds. He will be known as Maitreya.' - Buddha Gautama. 
          Prophet Muhammad (Sal) proclaimed that Islam is completed during the last Hajj. Islam taught about the knowledge of Universe. Buddhism spread through Asia while Islam spread through out the world.  As a result many Muslims scholars who studied Buddhist texts believe that Maitreya is “Rahmatu lil ‘Alameen” (Mercy for the Worlds), which is the name for the Prophet Muhammad and it is said in the Quran.  According to the research on the book Antim Buddha – Maitreya concluded that Muhammad had been the last and final awakened Buddha that came into existence long after the current teachings. 

Surah Al-Ahzab 33:40 Muhammad (SAW) is not the father of any man among you, but he is the Messenger of Allah and the last (end) of the Prophets. And Allah is Ever AllAware of everything.
          The seal of Prophets or the last and final Buddha according to Buddha’ Prediction will come when the world reaches 80,000 years of age, before the end of the world. Seven days after the birth of the Bodhisatta,(the last Buddha) his mother dies and is reborn in the Tusita Deva world (heaven).  He would be born and later conquered in the city of Ketumati - tranquil, safe, and free from danger. It is illuminated at all time. Men and women will be happy and joyful, enjoying festivals. They will have plenty to eat and drink. The city will have beautiful lotus ponds, full of water that is fragrant, clear, clean, cool, and sweet. The ponds will be accessible to people at all times.
          The prediction can be understood like this: 80,000 years is the time from Adam (A.s.) to the time of Prophet Muhammad (Sal). Prophet Muhammad (Sal) was an orphan since babyhood.  He was born in Mecca the city pure and safe.  The city is full of lights at all time.  Zamzam water is still available for the visitors today.  Finally, Prophet Muhammad (Sal) conquered Mecca.  There is no other city in the world representing Ketumati like Mecca

Surah Al-Imran 3:96 Verily, the first House (of worship) appointed for mankind was that at Bakkah (Makkah), full of blessing, and a guidance for Al-'Alamin (the mankind and jinns).
          Rasullullah(Sal) stated in a Hadith- “The best and the most beloved city on the face of this earth to Allah is Makkah.” (Sahih Al-Bukhari)  “There is no city on earth through which Allah multiplies one good deed by a hundred thousand except Makkah.” (Sahih Bukhari , lbn Hibban)  Mecca is the original place of worship to Allah (Sub) Alone from the beginning of time till now.  It is confirmed by many scriptures in many names like Bakkah and also Ketumati.
