Can Prophet Mohammed be considered to be the last Incarnation, Kalki?

Shri Durgaprasad asked: A Muslim preacher Zakir Naik claims, Prophet Mohammed was the last Prophet even as per Hinduism, because it is said in Hinduism that the Lord will come as last Incarnation, Kalki. Of course, Zakir Naik picks up quotations from the scriptures of other religions, selectively, to suit his purpose. Swami, can you please tell us, what is the significance of the Incarnation of Lord Kalki, when the Lord has also said that He will come again and again.

Swami replied: We belong to Universal Spirituality and we do not have even the slightest objection in calling Prophet Mohammed as the Human Incarnation of God. Kalki is only the name of one Human Incarnation. Even if Kalki is actually different from the Prophet, it does not make any difference, because both the future Kalki and the past Prophet are equal in the sense that both are Human Incarnations of God. Kalki is only a name and any newborn child can be named Kalki. But there is a similarity between Kalki and the Prophet. Both use the sword to bring spiritual reformation in the world. Kalki is the last Incarnation who will destroy the world, causing its final dissolution (mahā pralaya). But before that, God will come again and again as different Human Incarnations, whenever there is a requirement (Yadāyadāhi...—Gita).
