For the last post, I received comment in Facebook asking me not to be foolish about Islam and went on to trace the geneology of Arabia(!?) from the Koran! I did not seem it fit to reply to the comment. This comment made me research further about the Vedic roots of Arabia. Arabia is from the Sanskrit word Asva, Arava meaning Horse and Sthan, Place. Arabia is thus the place of Horses. Ancient Tamil Literature abounds in reference to Arabia as the land of Horses and all the Ancient Tamil Kings, Chera, Chola and Pandyas imported Horses from Arabia. The major land route to Arabia was from the North West of India and the Arabic people drew spiritual inspiration from India. ‘The Uttarapath (Northern Highway) was the international highway to the North of India. It was via Uttarapath that Arabia and other Middle Eastern countries drew their spiritual, educational and material sustenance from India. Besides, this Sea-links were formed with India at least 800 years before the advent of Islam. Basra was the ancient gateway to India because it was at this port that the Arab lands received Indian goods and visitors. At that time the spoken language was Sanskrit, which later dwindled into the local variation that we now call Arabic. Thousands of words that were derived from Sanskrit still survive in Arabic today.

The Sanskrit Astronomical treatise Brahma-Sphuta-Siddhanta in Arabic translation is known as Sind-Hind, while another treatise Khanda-Khadyaka was called Arkand. Mathematics itself was calledHindisa . The Arabs derived technical guidance in every branch of study such as astronomy, mathematics and physics from India. A noted scholar of history, W.H. Siddiqui notes: “The Arab civilization grew up intensively as well as extensively on the riches of Indian trade and commerce. Nomadic Arab tribes became partially settled communities and some of them lived within walled towns practised agriculture and commerce, wroteon wood and stone, feared the gods and honored the kings.” Some people wrongly believe that Arabs used the word Hindu as a term of contemptuous abuse. Nothing could be further from the truth. The people of pre-Islamic Arabia held Hinduism in great esteem as evidenced from the fact that they would endearingly call their most attractive and favourite daughters as Hinda and Saifi Hindi. The fact that Arabs regarded India as their spiritual and cultural motherland long before the damaging influence of Islam is corroborated by the following poem which mentions each one of the four Vedas by name . English translation.Oh the divine land of HIND (India) (how) very blessed art thou! Because thou art the chosen of God blessed with knowledge.That celestial knowledge which like four lighthouses shone in such brilliance – through the (utterances of) Indian sages in fourfold abundance.”God enjoins on all humans, follow with hands down The path the Vedas with his divine precept lay down.”Bursting with (Divine) knowledge are SAM &YAJUR bestowed on creation, Hence brothers respect and follow the Vedas, guides to salvationTwo others, the Rig and Athar teach us fraternity, Sheltering under their lustre dispels darkness till eternity” Lby Labi-Bin-E- Akhtab-Bin-E-Turfa who lived in Arabia around 1850 B.C. That was 2300 years before Mohammed! --- Send in a voice message: https://anchor.fm/ramanispodcast/message
