From Saints, Sufis and Yogis

Shri Mataji Nirmala Devi has indicated that Mohammad (570-632) was an incarnation of the Primordial Master who came on this earth to establish the religion known as Islam:

Today is a special day of Guru Nanaka’s birthday. We have celebrated one Guru puja, and as you know that Guru Nanak was also the incarnation of the Primordial Master, the same spirit came on this earth, and He’s the one who tried to re-establish the work of Mohammed. Mohammed was the incarnation of the same spirit, the Primordial Master. He came on this earth to establish the religion. Islam is the name of that religion, is the religion of every Sahaja Yogi, of every Christian, of every Hindu. We all belong to one religion which believes in expanding our awareness to the new perception of collectivity. (1980-1123)

Shri Mataji observed that there are two important concepts in the life of Mohammad Sahib:

The first one is called as Meraj which is nothing but the awakening of the Kundalini, absolutely clearly. And the second one He has talked about is jihad. Jihad means killing your bad things, killing your bad nature, killing all the shadripus (six enemies of the soul) within you. It doesn’t mean that you become a Muslim and kill yourself. It’s the stupidest thing to do. (2001-1225)
