Shiva Sthuthi By Prophet’s Uncle Umar-Bin-E-Hassham


I have posted articles on the existence of Hinduism, Sanatana Dharma in Mesopotamia,including the Arabian Peninsula.

These articles were about the Kaaba, Mecca being a Hindu place of worship and there is a Shiva Linga;King Vikramadhitya’s Inscription is found there.

I shall be posting a detailed article on the History of Kaaba.

In the meanwhile, I would like to share a Poem, Stuthi on Lord Shiva by Umar-Bin-E-Hassham, an Uncle of Prophet Muhammad.

Muhammad’s uncle was one of the resident priests of the Shiv temple known as “Kaaba”.

Prophet Muhammad’s uncle (Chacha) Umar-bin-e-Hassham (also known as Abu Hakam or Abu Jahl) was a renowned poet whose famous Arabic poem in praise of Lord Shiva, included in Sair-ul-Okul and cited on a column in the (fire worship pavilion in the rear garden of the) Lakshmi Narayan Temple in New Delhi

Poem on Lord Shiva By Prophet’s Uncle.

The Shiva Sloka

Kafavomal fikra min ulumin Tab asayru
Kaluwan amataul Hawa was Tajakhru
We Tajakhayroba udan Kalalwade-E Liboawa
Walukayanay jatally, hay Yauma Tab asayru
Wa Abalolha ajabu armeeman MAHADEVA
Manojail ilamuddin minhum wa sayattaru
Wa Sahabi Kay-yam feema-Kamil MINDAY Yauman
Wa Yakulum no latabahan foeennak Tawjjaru
Massayaray akhalakan hasanan Kullahum
Najumum aja- at Summa gabul HINDU

Translation.

The man who may spend his life in sin
and irreligion or waste it in lechery and wrath
If at least he relent and return to
righteousness can he be saved?
If but once he worship Mahadeva with a pure
heart, he will attain the ultimate in spirituality.
Oh Lord Shiva exchange my entire life for but
a day’s sojourn in India where one attains salvation.
But one pilgrimage there secures for one all
merit and company of the truly great.

  1. Umar-Bin-E-Hassham as Uncle of Prophet? let take historical evidence,
    One character is there in Islamic history in 556- 624 by name of Amr ibn Hishām (عمرو إبن هشام) also called Abu al-Hakam (أبو الحكم‎) or Abū Jahl (أبو جهل‎).
    He was among the Qurayshi leaders from the Meccan. He was well known as polytheist/pagan and was known for his critical opposition towards Prophet Muhammad and the early Muslims in Mecca.
    He was the brother of Hantamah bint Hisham who was married to Khattab ibn Nufayl and their son Umar ibn Al-Khattab became the second caliph of the Rashidun Caliphate.
    Amr ibn Hishām was the maternal-uncle of Umar ibn Al-Khattab. So Amr ibn Hishām or Umar-Bin-E-Hassham was not the close related uncle of Prophet.
    But if you go back to 4-5 generation and try to pick Amr ibn Hishām family tree and family tree of Prophet then it can be said as they had common ancestor Makhzum ibn Yaqazah.
    Regarding the Poem, it needs more references.
    al-Kaʿbah al-Musharrafah was the holy site of pre-Islamic religion. There is no issue in that. But was that a Shiva temple no historic evidence.

    Al-Ḥajaru al-Aswad, “the Black Stone”, is located on the Kaaba’s eastern corner. The Black Stone was originally a single piece of rock but today consists of a number of pieces that have been cemented together. They are surrounded by a silver frame.
    The Stone’s exposed face measures about 20 centimeters (7.9 in) by 16 centimeters (6.3 in). Its original size is unclear and the recorded dimensions have changed considerably over time. In the 10th century, an observer described it as one cubit (46 cm or 18 in) long. By the early 17th century, it was recorded as measuring 1.40 by 1.22 m (4 ft 7 in by 4 ft). According to Ali Bey in the 18th century, it was described as 110 cm (3 ft 7 in) high, and Muhammad Ali Pasha reported it as being 76 cm (2 ft 6 in) long by 46 cm (1 ft 6 in) wide.
    The Black Stone is also known as al-Rukn al-Aswad (the ‘Corner of the Black Stone’). Another stone, known as the Hajar as-Sa’adah (‘Stone of Felicity’) is set into the Kaaba’s opposite corner, al-Rukn al-Yamani (the ‘Yemeni Corner’), at a somewhat lower height than the Black Stone.
