    What was the Arabic name for Buddha in Jahaliyyah and early Islamic times?
     
  2. I don't think there used to be a name for buddha during Aljahilia ,for the reason it was something unheard_of at the time,The most oldest reference to buddha i can denote is that one of the early medieval Islamic era where Al_Biruni called him " البد " and the buddhists as أصحاب البد
