Early article on Muhammad in World Scriptures
In the June 1933 issue of a quarterly, The Muslim Revival, there is an article by Maulana Abdul Haq Vidyarthi, entitled Prophecies in World Scriptures about the Advent of Prophet Muhammad. This would seem to be one of his earliest writings on this subject, as it pre-dates the publication of his first book on this subject, i.e., the first volume of the Urdu book Misaq-un-Nabiyyin in 1936, the English translation of which was published as Muhammad in World Scriptures in 1940.
See this link to read the article, which has been scanned from a copy of the issue of The Muslim Revival which was in the possession of the Maulana (and is now in possession of the writer of these lines, Zahid Aziz).
The Muslim Revival was a quarterly which appeared from 1932 to 1936 from Lahore, edited ‘Under the General Direction of Maulana Muhammad Ali’, and carried articles written by leading Muslim scholars of the time. Shown below is the front cover and the following page of the above-mentioned issue.
(The name Abdul Haque Vidyarthi was scribbled on the front cover of this copy in the top left corner by me after I found it in the Maulana’s papers in 1983.)
