Exploring the Concept of One God in Islam and Hinduism

Are you a Hindu? You may already know that idol-worshipping lacks a solid basis and goes against our natural instinct and intellect. If you seek a deeper understanding of the divine, come and learn about Islam, which teaches that there is only one God (Allah). Interestingly, the Vedas, one of the most ancient and revered scriptures in Hinduism, also contain verses that suggest the existence of a single God.

The Universal Message of Islam

Islam's core message is the worship of one God (Allah) and living a life of righteousness and justice. This message resonates with the intrinsic human understanding of a single, all-powerful Creator. By studying Islam, you will find a comprehensive and coherent explanation of the divine, free from the complexities of idol worship.

Moreover, Islam provides a clear path to salvation, emphasizing the importance of faith in one God, good deeds, and adherence to the teachings of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). The Quran, the holy book of Islam, serves as a complete guide for living a balanced and fulfilling life.

Monotheism in the Vedas

The Rigveda, one of the four canonical sacred texts of Hinduism, has several references to a singular divine presence. For instance, Rigveda 8:1:1 states:

"Oh friend, do not worship anybody except Him, the Divine One."

This verse emphasizes the worship of a singular divine entity, aligning closely with the monotheistic principles of Islam. Such references in Hindu scriptures suggest a common understanding of monotheism across different religious traditions.

Prophecies of Prophet Muhammad in Hindu Scriptures

Additionally, there are prophecies in Hindu scriptures that are interpreted by some scholars as referring to the advent of Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him). These references highlight the universality of his message and his role as the final messenger sent by God. For example:

  • The Bhavishya Purana, an ancient Hindu text, mentions a foreign spiritual teacher (Mahaamad) who will guide people to the path of righteousness.
  • The Atharva Veda mentions a teacher who will be protected by angels and will have a profound impact on the spiritual landscape.

These prophecies are seen by many as indicative of Prophet Muhammad's significant role in guiding humanity.

Vedas/Puranas – One God, One God

Islam emphasizes the importance of worshiping one God and performing righteous deeds, concepts that are also supported in the scriptures of Sanatan Dharma.

Quran Vedas/Upanishad
قُلْ هُوَ ٱللَّهُ أَحَدٌ
"Say He is One" (Quran 112:1)
Ekam Evaditiyam.
"He is One only, without a second" (Chandogya Upanishad 6:2:1)
لَيْسَ كَمِثْلِهِۦ شَىْ
"There is nothing like Him" (Quran 42:11)
Na tasya Pratima asti
"There is no likeness of Him" (Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:19)
لَمْ يَلِدْ وَلَمْ يُولَدْ
"He neither begets nor is born" (Quran 112:3)
Na casya kasju janita na cadhipah.
"Of Him there are no parents nor Lord" (Svetasvatara Upanishad 6:9)
Allahu Akbar (Muslims pronounce in prayer)
"God is Great"
Dev Maha Osi
"God is verily Great!" (Atharvaveda 20, 58:3)
"And your Lord has decreed that you not worship except Him." (Quran 17:23) "Oh friend, do not worship anybody except Him, the Divine One" (Rigveda 8:1:1)

Although the authenticity of the Vedas and Upanishads is uncertain, they do contain some truths. However, this does not imply that you should follow the Vedas, Upanishads, or the Gita, as it is unclear which verses are true and which are not. For this reason, Allah (भगवान / ईश्वर) sent Prophet Muhammad with the Quran, which is 100% accurate and verifiable.

Idol Worship - A Grave Sin (According to the Quran and Vedas)

Idol worshipping was rampant in Makkah, before Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) came, and it was revealed to him about the Oneness of God. So preaching this message was not just a challenge to Muhammad (pbuh) but was life-threatening. It resulted in migration to Medina.

Idol worship is such a big sin that if one dies with this belief, he will enter hellfire. Why? Because God has never told mankind to worship idols. It indicates disobedience to God.

What does Sanatan Dharma (Hinduism) tell us?

Na tasya Pratima asti

– Yajurveda 32:3

“There is no image of Him”

“Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desire surrender unto demigods and follow the particular rules and regulations of worship according to their own nature.”

– Bhagavat Geeta 7:20

अन्धं तमः प्रविशन्ति येसंभूतीमुपसते |
ततः भूय ऽ इव ते तमो य ऽ उ संभुत्याः रताः ||

“They enter darkness, those who worship natural things (fire, air, water). They sink even in deeper darkness those who worship sambhuti (created objects like idols)”

– Yajurveda 40:9

If someone does a lot of good deeds, but never believed in the true God and His Messengers, all his deeds will go in vain in the hereafter, and hell-fire will be his final abode.

"And whoever desires other than Islam as religion - never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers."

– Quran (3:85)

Please don’t ignore this message, it is an extremely important matter, verify what I say and then follow the right way.
