priya, 'allah' simply means 'the great one' so if if islam says that god is allah, they are saying that god is the great one. 'allah' is not the name they have given god - though today it is interpreted as a name! Big smile

 I know this subject is a very sensitive subject so hopefully I dont offend anyone, I will try my best not to. But..I know you have been taught by your parents or whoever that there is only one god..and that god is allah. But there.. can be a god with many names to him/her dont you think? Is there a specific reason that you think that there is only one god..and that god has to be allah?

Priya

i know it is a sensitive issue but thee way you are striking can hurt anyones feeling...

My question to those who say there is one god , and his name is "so and so " .

Do you belive that other beliefs / religons and Gods are not true gods ???? Do you believe those religons are not true religons ?? Do you think practising other beliefs will lead them to hell as some call other beliefs different from theirs as paegan beliefs or call the others as Infidels( non- believer )??


If you think there is one god and that God is "so and so "(the god you worship) , you are definately being too arrogant to believe this.

"God" and gods
Hindus- and I as a Hindu acknowledge and worship various gods, but these are all aspects of the one supreme "God".
The gods Vishnu, Shiva and Brahma are different forms and names of the one God. Vishnu in particular has appeared on earth in various forms. Among these, Krishna and Rama are especially loved and worshipped.

Many think that Hinduism is polytheistic-which means worshipping many gods, but in fact Hindus actually believe in only one supreme God, called "Brahman" - that which is all pervading and formless - yet the life in all.

Brahman is the supreme spirit that permeates everything.

BUT: Brahman is not a being in the sense that Christians think of God as a being - Brahman is entirely impersonal, and entirely impossible to describe.

Everything in the universe is part of Brahman, (including each one of us), but Brahman is more than the sum of everything in the universe. There is only one ultimate reality, Brahman. But that ultimate reality shows itself in many forms, and some of those forms are called Gods.

This is my point of view - and i think a general consensus of Hindus across the globe, I think... Confused

Ya i agree with you . And thx for summing it up for people who don't understand. Let me just add to this.

An early vedic hymn( RV 5.3.1) draws together different Gods and declares that they are each the same reality in different stages or modes of manisfestation.
" At birth,Agni you are Varuna: when set alight you become Mitra :in you , son of strength,all Gods find their centre: to those who worship you become Indra "
