Euro_Pakigal and Ms.Attitude

Hindus believe in One Supreme God with different forms , while Muslims only believe in Allah . and Christians only believe in Christ , and you have Sikhs believing in "Waaheguru". No one is questioning WHY do you believe in Ram , Allah or Christ . That isn't a question at all.

Hindus don't pray to Allah or Jesus .While Muslims don't pray to Hindu gods or Christ .

But Hinduism respects and believes that Allah is a God and so is Jesus .Although we don't pray to him , just like you to don't pray to Hindu gods.But they show respect by saying yes Allah and Christ exist and are different forms of GOD.

My question i know its senstive , and i'll ask as senstively as possible . Do Muslims believe the God Hindus pray to our Gods to ? Ofcourse you don't believe and worship him .Like Hindus don't worship Allah . But what is your opinion of a Hindu God ?

1)Hindu God - Is he non - existant , paegan God ?

2) He is a Hindu God and you respect it like you respect Allah?As different religons have their own Gods.

3) Or he is the same god as Allah with a different name .

I know this is senstive , so for understanding differnt religons and their thoughts towards other reliogons , i thought i'll ask the question. Hope i don't offend any one with this question. Also i know we are mature people in this section and can handle a senstive topic like religous beliefs . As long as we speak senstively.

*Disclaimer: My knowledge of these religions is purely academic. Therefore, I would request that the followers of the following religions not be offended by any mistake I make in my assessments*

Here are some common misconceptions people have about different religions:

1) Hinduism is polytheism...It is not polytheism at all actually. However, it is not monotheism or pantheism either. Hinduism itself is divided into various systems: Qualified Monism, Absolutisitic Monism, etc.

The idea is that there is one God (ultimate reality), which is Ishvara (also called Vishnu or Shiva or Saguna Brahman) or Nirguna Brahman (if you go by Shankara's system)

Any "god" who is worshipped is equated to the Ultimate reality. The concept of Trimurti/Trinity of Brahma, Vishnu, Shiva was introduced much later by Neo-Vedantics.

2) Islam does not worship a God called "Allah". God does not have a name or a gender. the word "Allah" means "The ONE" in Arabic. It just means there is one ultimate reality.

3) Jehovah or YHWH (pronounced Yahweh) is not the name for a God in Judaism. It just is Hebrew for "I am what I am"

The story goes that when Moses asked God's name, He said the word YHWH. He never mentioned His name.

3) Jesus is not God, but he's called the "Son of God" by Christians. However, the concept of Trinity was later introduced which complicated things (God as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit)

There are a few other religions I can go into, but dont have the time now...will do so later if anyone is interested.

But, note how these so called "names" are merely descriptions of God in another language.

Eventually, this just proves there is one Ultimate reality.

I think most of us will agree with you with a few exceptions who may beleive there is one God and he has no other name but the name by which they call him .

They fail to realise other religons just call him with a different name.  Utlimately there is one reality .

a rose is a rose...
god is an experience all of us strive to attain and those who have done so at some point of time, are unable to put it in words. hence the religions, faiths, prophets, gurus.. and the endless debates about whose path is greater or truer. therein lies the beauty of it, maybe. and the fun - mortals fighting over immortals.
