Book Sample = THE CONCEPT OF GOD IN ISLAM AND HINDUISM

The Concept of God in Islam – THE CONCEPT OF GOD IN ISLAM AND HINDUISM

“There is nothing like unto Him, and He is the Hearing, the Seeing.” (Ash-Shura 42:11) God is One, God is an eternal and timeless Reality, everything is from Him, but He is not from anything, He is the Creator of everything, He is the Sustainer of the whole universe.

“Allah Almighty is the Ever Living, the One Who sustains and protects all that exists. Neither slumber nor sleep overtakes Him. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is he that can intercede with Him except with His Permission?

He knows what happens to them (His creatures) in this world, and what will happen to them in the Hereafter. And they will never compass anything of His Knowledge except that which He wills. His command extends over the heavens and the earth, and He feels no fatigue in guarding and preserving them.And He is the Most High, the Most Great.” (Al-Baqarah 2:55)

“Say (O Muhammad!): “He is Allah, the One, Allah is the Self-Sufficient, Master, Whom all creatures need, He begets not, nor was He begotten, and there is none co-equal or comparable unto Him.” (Al-Ikhlas 112:1)

This Surah presents a clear and lucid concept about Allah the Almighty, the concept that is far from those impurities, defects and stains that were added to the faith of Monotheism across the human history. Allah is not many, He is only One, everything needs Him, He needs nothing, He is Master of all things by Himself, He was not begotten and He does not beget.

God is the Eternal and Absolute – THE CONCEPT OF GOD IN ISLAM AND HINDUISM

He is too exalted to beget or to be begotten. He is the Eternal and Absolute. No one and nothing is equal to Him in any sense. This verifies the invalidity of all sorts of godhood attributed to human beings, stone, animal, river, sun, moon, earth, fire etc. The above-mentioned facts clarify the falsehood of idolatry, the worship of cows, the worship of vulva and private parts of a male.

Even a common person can compare between the sublime and pure principles of the Islamic faith and the descriptions and attributes of God and His divinity in the Hindu scriptures. I think that even an ordinary individual does not need long thinking and deep knowledge to distinguish between the purity of the Islamic faith and the imperfections and serious flaws in the doctrines of other than Islam about Allah the Almighty and His attributes.

This life is an exam and test, it is only seventy or eighty years and then everyone will die and would be held accountable for their choice and the argument would be proved against you and the chance would be missed forever. Allah Almighty says:

“And be afraid of the Day when you shall be brought back to Allah. Then every person shall be paid what he earned, and they shall not be dealt with unjustly.” (Al-Baqarah 2:281)

The Concept of God in Hinduism =

Human mind has a significant role in the understanding and perception of the Attributes of God in the light of revelation. The true perception of divinity, attributes of God and realities of the unseen world essentially depends on divine revelation. No doubt, the human mind also leads to the confession of the existence of an entity that has created the universe.

Allah, the Almighty, says: “We will show them Our Signs in the universe, and in their own selves, until it becomes manifest to them that this (the Qur’ân) is the truth.”(Fussilat 41:53) Also, the human mind examines the reality and truth of the miracles shown by a person claiming to be a prophet.

Human sense helps knowing what is appropriate regarding Allah the Almighty, and what is inappropriate for Him. It guides to what is acceptable in the personalities of the Apostles and Prophets and what is unacceptable for them. An ordinary person concludes by his simple mind that God is not like His Creation; God is Unique, Matchless and Beyond Compare.

It is impossible for God to be a liar, cheater or impudent. Every one of us can assert that the true Prophets and Messengers of Allah do not lie or deceive. A manner-less or impolite individual cannot be a true prophet.

In Hindu Scriptures – THE CONCEPT OF GOD IN ISLAM AND HINDUISM

On the contrary, the Hindu scriptures present for gods and Avatars a definition and picture that do not suit a normal human being, not to mention the Prophets and God. These scriptures describe God, Prophets and Apostles as adulterers, thieves, liars and lechers, which indicates that these scriptures are distorted and fake as they contradict commonsense, logic and wisdom.3

I think that the followers of different religions have failed to use their mind in the examination of the Attributes of Allah the Almighty, and they failed to understand the characteristics and qualities of a true prophet or messenger. Thus, they fell prey to deviant ideas and perverted philosophies that had long-term negative effects on human society throughout the human history.

The same happened to Hinduism. Faith in One God has been the origin and base since the beginning of human life on this earth, and then people began to portray the One God in different forms, shapes and manifestations according to His Qualities and Actions that they imagined for Him.

Some people believe that God pervades everything in this world

Some people believe that God pervades everything in this world, whether low or high, pure or dirty, living thing or nonliving thing. They believe that God manifests into a multitude of manifestations and forms. Some Hindus regard a particular animal or person as a manifestation of Brahma.

And the result is that many of their spiritual mentors, religious leaders, imaginary manifestations and fanciful forms of God turned into original gods and were worshipped like God Himself. And thus, they got deviated from the true monotheism, which is at the heart of the message of all prophets and messengers.

Thereupon, paganism originated in the human community and spread among people. Thus, the worship of images and statues is on the rise steadily in various parts of India between various castes of the Hindu society. In Bengal, the idol of Kali Durga is worshiped, in Kashmir, and Shiva; his wife Parvati and their child Ganesh (the elephant god) are regarded as gods and their idols are worshipped.
