Here is part of the last verse transliterated. Make up your own mind.

ilelAkabarho akabarha ilelAkabarho akabarha ilelAkabarho akabarha
ilelAkabarho akabarha ilelAkabarho akabarha.h |
akabarho.asmi akabarho.asmi akabarho.asmi akabarho.asmi ||

Looks like someone decided to convert allaahuakbar into Sanskrit.
Total nonsense, to say the least.

I agree with Satish in his assessment (not sure I would put it that way :-))

"have seen this upaniShad once and there is nothing Hindu about it. It
does not matter who your "reliable source" on this matter is, even if
this source is a sanyasi from the great shankara order, it does not
matter, he deserves to be slapped hard for the above misinformation."
