Muslims routinely scare people of other faiths by saying that if they do not embrace Islam, Allah will burn them in hell.
There are 7.4 billion people on Earth — 2 billion Christians, 1.5 billion are Muslims, and the rest of 3.9 billion people on Earth are Hindus, Buddhists, Atheists, Agnostics, Shintos, Confucians, others.
Can you ever imagine a loving and merciful God who would burn more than nearly 6 billion people of humanity in hell for not following the Muslim faith?
This means that Rama, Buddha, Guru Nanak, Swami Vivekananda, Mahatma Gandhi, and even modern Gurus such as Amma of Kerala, Sri Sri Ravi Shankar and Sadhguru Jaggi Vasudev would find their place in hell.
Can you imagine that a Maulvi at a local masjid, being a devout Muslim, would find his way in heaven, but not Gandhi and Guru Nanak?
This certainly cannot be the idea of a loving Allah, but a vengeful & hating one. Reject such an idea of a God. Be courageous. It is better to stay on the side of Gandhi and Vivekananda for us.
When you challenge Muslims with the above idea, they will ‘lie’ and tell you that ‘maybe’ Buddha, Krishna were Prophets, as there were 124,000 Prophets before Muhammad; they will tell you they simply cannot be sure.
They are intentionally lying — a term called ‘Taqiya’ in Islam. This means they are permitted to lie for a higher noble cause, such as one of converting Hindus (who they hate as polytheists or idol worshippers) to Islam.
Do note, they will certainly reject Nanak and Vivekananda as having a status of prophets because they reject any prophethood after Muhammad.
Don’t give in to their Taqiya, their intentional lies. Use your intelligence. Keep challenging them!
Muslim boys, possibly with Hindu names, trying to lure you into loving them, will ask you — “how can there be hundreds & thousands of gods?”. They will remind you that there can be only one God.
True. Remember Hindus believe that all of creation is ONE with the Creator. All that you see manifest around you is made up of the same energy or consciousness as that of the Creator.
It is a form of ONE-ness that Islam or Christianity are unable to even imagine.
If the creator and created are separate, as the Muslims will tell you, ask them with what material did the creator create all this Universe — with billions of galaxies and billions of stars in each galaxy?
How can there be any material outside of the creator? Aske them. Their arguments will fall flat on their face.
Muslims are brainwashed early in childhood by their religious teaching — parents, maulvis, friends & relatives — to not question Islamic faith. They are instilled with fear that ‘Shaitan’ is whispering in their ear, and that they will go to hell.
The Creator could not have created this Universe out of something other than Himself. Do you agree? This is the essential Hindu idea of ‘Advaita’ or ‘Non-Dualism’ – that there can be nothing existing that we see which is not God.
Hence, Hindus worship different qualities of this ONE CREATOR via ‘Murthis’. These are not simply stone-idols. They are ‘Murthis’ infused with living energy of the Creator with help of Mantras and Tantric processes called ‘Prana-Pratishtha’.
Now they will tell you that ‘Shaitan’ (or the Christian ‘Satan’) is speaking into your ear. He will deviate you from the true path. You will burn in hell.
When you ask difficult questions about Islam & Quran to a Muslim, they tell you this. Fear has been infused in their minds from an early age. Don’t let them throw all that fear on you.
How can there be a God and an equal opposing force called Satan or Shaitan who keeps creating confusion in our minds?
Does Allah or God not have the strength to kill him? Or does he intentionally allow Shaitan to live so that human beings are ‘tested’?
Ask them, what kind of an Allah or God is one who creates such difficulties for human beings (nearly 6 billion people) by giving them birth in different countries, religions, and traditions, including in tribal societies living deep in jungles of Brazil and Andaman Islands, who have still no contact with human beings?
This sounds like a sadistic God.
Do you ever give such ‘tests’ to your little brother or mother to see if they love you? Does your father test you? And then punish you with the worst of treatment — like ‘burning in pots of oil’ if you failed?
You simply love your mother, your elder sister, or your little brother; you love them unconditionally; you don’t put conditions on them for your love?
This Allah or God and these religions are worth rejecting!
Now, they will ask you to speak to some Maulvi or show you videos of Zakir Naik to convince you.
Zakir Naik is a liar. He has been banned in India, UK and even in Islamic countries like Malaysia for spreading hatred and disharmony between religions.
He encourages terrorism in the world. Don’t listen to him. He is a hate preacher!
Hinduism is not a single-faith religion like Islam or Christianity. It is a multi-faith religion. You could be a Shiva follower, or a Vaishnavite; you may a Shakti follower or a Tantrik; a Charvaka (or Materialist) or even an Atheist.
You are free to follow your heart. There are no commandments like there are in Islam or Christianity. Ask yourself, if Allah wanted commandments, why could he not write the instructions on your bodies when you came out of your mother’s womb.
There is no burning hell in Hinduism. There are no punishments. There is no punishing god.
Only pure conscious energy of which you are made. Only your actions or Karma. You bear fruit of your actions – good or bad. Your soul lives forever. It was never born and will never die. It will keep taking rebirth in different bodies to different parents and in different times.
You, with Yoga & Sadhana, are capable of realising your true nature, the realisation that ‘you and the creator are ONE and the same’. This state is called Moksha or Nirvana (in Buddhism).
Thousands of Spiritual Gurus have been born in the land of Bharata who have arrived at this same conclusion. Listen to them and practice Yoga & Sadhana. Then decide for yourself with first hand experience!
