Kaaba and its connection with Hindu Civilization

Disclaimer: the information in this post is controversial. i just published another view point, which may or may not be historically perfect. Hinduism.co.za has a very interesting article that trace back Kaaba, the holiest place of Islamic faith with Hindu Civilization. Even some of the rituals performed during the Hajj has close connection with those of Hindu sacred practices. I quote from the website: "As the pilgrim proceeds towards Mecca he is asked to shave 1

his head and beard and to wear special sacred attire that consists of two seamless sheets of white cloth. One is to be worn round the waist and the other over the shoulders. Both these rites are remnants of the old Vedic practice of entering Hindu temples clean- and with holy seamless white sheets. The main shrine in Mecca, which houses the Siva emblem, is known as the Kaaba. It is clothed in a black shroud. That custom also originates from the days when it was thought necessary to discourage its recapture by camouflaging it. According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, the Kaaba has 360 images. Traditional accounts mention that one of the deities among the 360 destroyed when the place was stormed, was that of Saturn; another was of the Moon and yet another was one called Allah. That shows that in the Kaaba the (pre-islamic) Arabs worshipped the nine planets in pre-Islamic days. In India the practice of Navagraha puja, that is worship of the nine planets, is still in vogue. Two of these nine are Saturn and Moon. In India the crescent moon is always painted across the forehead of the Siva symbol. Since that symbol was associated with the Siva emblem in Kaaba it came to be grafted on the flag of Islam. Another Hindu tradition associated with the Kaaba is that of the sacred stream Ganga (sacred waters of the Ganges river). According to the Hindu tradition Ganga is also inseparable from the Shiva emblem as the crescent moon. Wherever there is a Siva emblem, Ganga must co-exist. True to that association a sacred fount exists near the Kaaba. Its water is held sacred because it has been traditionally regarded as Ganga since pre-Islamic times (Zam-Zam water). [Note: Even today, Muslim pilgrims who go to the Kaaba for Haj regard this Zam-Zam water with reverence and take some bottled water with them as sacred water.] Muslim pilgrims visiting the Kaaba temple go around it seven times. Hindus invariably circumambulate around their deities. This is yet another proof that the Kaaba shrine is a pre-Islamic Indian Shiva temple where the Hindu practice of circumambulation is still meticulously observed. The practice of taking seven steps- known as Saptapadi in Sanskrit- is associated with Hindu marriage ceremony and fire worship. The culminating rite in a Hindu marriage enjoins upon the bride and groom to go round the sacred fire four times (but misunderstood by many as seven times). Since "Makha" means fire, the seven circumambulations also prove that Mecca was the seat of Indian fire-worship in the West Asia. It might come as a stunning revelation to many that the word ALLAH itself is Sanskrit. In Sanskrit language Allah, Akka and Amba are synonyms. They signify a goddess or mother. The term ALLAH forms part of Sanskrit chants invoking goddess Durga, also known as Bhavani, Chandi and Mahishasurmardini. The Islamic word for God is.,

therefore, not an innovation but the ancient Sanskrit appellation retained and continued by Islam. Allah means mother or goddess and mother goddess." Read the reference for more details. I'm sure Muslims as well as non-Muslims will find it quite stunning, isn't it. Reference: http://www.hinduism.co.za/kaabaa.htm

Some ultra-orthodox Muslim may feel bit offended with such connections. But my point here is not to offend but to show the underlying unity among religions. There is no harm in it since its the humanity as a whole for which religion was given, NOT as if for religion humanity was formed. We better not forget that truth and if we remember it, it will always help to create harmony among faiths. God bless us all. http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index?qid=20080210044330AAaC7o4

Arabic way of writing "Allah" looks like the ancient Sanskrit "Omkr", the genuine name of Bhagavan. Why?
I dont like this! Why these people take symbols from my Dharm and pervert it? Shivji half-moon crescent they put on top of their mosques. And then they come and break Shivji's temples. I dont like this one bit. Hitler took the sacred Swastik and perverted it. May these guys have an end similar to Hitler.

Attunement: This is a song of unity, a recognition of the One Light that shines through many windows. These sacred lyrics are a combination of Arabic and Sanskrit. The foundation of this song is the combination of the Sanskrit om and Arabic allh, which are sacred syllables that each point toward That which is beyond name and form. (Note that neither Sanskrit nor Arabic have any capital letters.) The mystical Arabic phrase l ilha illa-llh is literally translated as "no deity except The One"(Qur'an 47:19), and the Sanskrit phrase satyam eva jayate is literally translated as "Truth alone is victorious" (Mundaka Upanishad 3.1.6).

Allah is a Sanskrit word. In Sanskrit Allah, Akka and Amba are synonyms. They signify a goddess or mother. The term Allah appears in Sanskrit chants while invoking goddess Durga i.e. Bhavani. The Islamic word Allah for God is therefore not an innovation but the ancient Sanskrit appellation retained and continued to be used by Islam.

The origins of Allah


Hi All. As I have posted a lot about islam & some have made comments about his origine & also stated certain facts about his. I have now decided to post information about this, I hope you find it of interest. God Bless VoT The origins of Allah All false religion began in ancient Sumer with Nimrod. All archaeologists now agree that the first civilization was in the Fertile Crescent particularly at Shinar, where is Shinar? Shinar is the Biblical name for Iraq, the other name for a region of Iraq where the God of Israel confused the languages of the people is the very place where tower of Babel was going to be built, it is called Babylon. Literally and symbolically it is used for the last empire of the Bible and this last empire is Islam since these are the regions now occupied by Muslims. Allah is AL-ILAH, which is related to Enlil, Baal, Baili, and to many other false gods. So Allah contrary to popular belief was not invented by Muhammad the Muslim prophet but in fact existed before his birth. Muhammad's father's name was Abdullah, abd in the Arabic language can refer to a slave/servant therefore Abdullah means servant of Allah. In an allegory, a poem was written centred on Gilgamesh, this is another name for Nimrod. The goddess is addressed and scolded for trying to kill Gilgamesh as follows: Tammuz, the lover of thy youth. Thou causest to weep every year. The bright-colored Allahu bird thou didst love. Thou didst crush him and break his pinions. (Frazer, J G, The Golden Bough, Vol. IX, Unabr.Edition, The Scapegoat, Lond , pg. 371) The name Allah is believed to be originated from at least 2300 BC. Allah's root is is LIL, shortened to IL from Enlil. So Allah really evolved from Enlil to Lil and then IL. Remember the name used in the Bible Baal, is the Hebrew Ba'il meaning "the god", in Arabic it would be Al-Ilah and in Aramaic Alaha. There is an inscription in stone from Al-Ula in Northern Arabia, circa 500 BC, just 1000 years before Muhammad was born. In the same Semitic language dialect, and in the same time frame, are two other names of the gods- Mar-Allah, meaning Lord-god, and Adar'IL, a Sardonic contraction using the root form of the name for god from Sumer, LIL.

The god allah was exported by Nabonidus into Northern Arabia in the 6th century BC. At the time of Muhammad Allah was the chief god with three daughters Allat, Manat and Al-Uzza. Manat seems to be worshipped in Saudi Arabia earlier then Al-Uzza and Allat. You can read about these three daughters of Allah in Sura 53.19-20 "53.19": Have you then considered the Lat and the Uzza, "53.20": And Manat, the third, the last? In Islamic times Allah was known as "Lord of this house", the god called Hubal, the house being Ka'ba. This was the derivation of Ba'al or ha Ba'al. It was to Hubal that the Meccans prayed for food, protection and provision, this is clearly seen in the Qur'an where even Muhammad said in Sura 106 pray to him. "106.1": For the protection of the Qureaish -"106.2": Their protection during their trading caravans in the winter and the summer -- 3 So let them serve the Lord of this House 4 Who feeds them against hunger and gives them security against fear. It may be interesting for you to know that Muhammad in the early Meccan period never spoke about Abraham or the God of Abraham Yahweh. Muslims in desperation try to point out that Abraham is mentioned during the Meccan period but the Suras they present as evidence are disputed to be later Suras revealed in Medina. It may come as a surprise to the listeners that it was Nimrod who was deified and later became Molech, Baal and Allah, it was often the custom of pagans to kiss their deities statues thus we read in the Bible; 1 Kings 19:18 Yet I have left me seven thousand in Israel, all the knees which have not bowed unto Baal, and every mouth which hath not kissed him. Also mention of Allah can be found in the Bible in 2 Chronicles 26:7 And God helped him against the Philistines, and against the Arabians that dwelt in Gurbaal, and the Mehunims. Notice Gur-Baal is the name of the city named after the deity of Allah. In 520 B.C. Darius, King of Persia built his citadel in a city called Allanush (derived from Allah). Darius grand headquarters was named Allanush, in honor of Allah (Olmstead, A T, History of Assyria, Scribner, NY, 1923). You see Allah wasnt an Arabic invention, hes found in Persia also. The Persians were pagans so once again we see that Islamic ideas of Allah arent factual based on history.

It will be astonishing to learn that a reference to a King Vikramadity inscription was found in the Ka'ba temple in Mecca, proving beyond doubt that the Arabian peninsula formed a part of his Indian Empire", so it is quite possible that this was indeed a Hindu Temple as you know Hindus worship many deities and the Ka'ba pre-Muhammad's time did house at least 360 deities. Reproduced by Muslim Digest, July to Oct. 1986 pages. 23-24) (Article written by Mr P.N. Oak at N-128, Greater Kailas 1, New Delhi 14, India and distributed from Durban, South Africa) "The text of the crucial Vikramaditya inscription, found inscribed on a gold dish hung inside the Kaaba shrine in Mecca, is found recorded on page 315 of a volume known as "Sayar-ul-Okul" treasured in the Makhtab-e-sultania (library) in Istanbul, Turkey." (IBID) "Rendered in free English the inscription says "Fortunate are those who were born (and lived) during King Vikrama's reign. He was a noble, generous, dutiful ruler, devoted to the welfare of his subjects." "...The book also contains an elaborate description of the ancient shrine of Mecca, the town and the annual fair known as OKAJ which used to be held every year around the Kaaba temple in Mecca. This should convince readers that the annual Hajj of the Muslims to the Kaaba is not an Islamic speciality, but a mere continuation of an earlier pre-Islamic congregation." (IBID) "...It might come as a stunning revelation to many that the word "ALLAH" could possibly be derived from the Sanskrit language. In Sanskrit Allah, Akka and Amba are synonyms. They signify a goddess. The term Allah forms part of Sanskrit chants invoking goddess Durga, also known as Bhavani, Chandi and Mahishasuramardini. The Islamic word Allah for God is therefore could possibly be ancient Sanskrit appellation retained and continued by Islam. The word Allah could mean in ancient sanskrit mother goddess." (IBID) Also, there are inscriptions found near oases, Allah and Allat appear with no descriptive attachments, either in appeals for help in travel, or as part of the signature of the suppliant (like Abdallah-- IL root in name!). What does this mean? This means that IL and Allah shared the reverence of the ancient Sumerians, circa 3000 BC, and the northern Arab tribes in 500 BC. Survival time-- 2500 years. (Winnett, F V, and Reed, W L, Ancient Records From North Arabia, Univ. of Toronto, 1970 pg. 79,126-127 / 245,253b. Winnett has done some excellent work in recent work in inscription interpretation.) Muhammad did indeed cleaned the Ka'ba of several gods but took the god allah for the choice of worshipping him. This in itself is the concept of not only creating a religion but a god that does not actually exist. "...Muslim pilgrims visiting the Ka'ba temple go around it seven times. This custom is not

preserved in any Mosque. Hindus also circum-ambulate around their deities. This is yet another proof that the Ka'ba shrine could be a pre-Islamic Indian Shiva temple where the Hindu practise of circumambulation is still meticulously observed." (IBID) Who said Allah is god? It was Muhammad's testimony alone that Allah is one god. Let us take a look at the first revelation of Muhammad. In the Mishkat-ul-Massabih, Vol.IV, pp.356-357 we read about this first revelation as reported by Aisha, Muhammad's favorite wife: The first revelation which began to be revealed to the Apostle of Allah was a correct dream in sleep. He did not see a dream but it came like the morning dawn. Thereafter loneliness became dear to him and he used to seclude himself to the cave of Hira and engaged therein in deep devotion (and it is divine service) for many nights before he went to his house and provided himself with food. Then he would return to Khadija and take provision for the like of them (nights) until the truth came unto him while he was in the cave of Hira. The angel appeared before him and said, "Read." He said, "I cannot read." He narrated: Then he took me and pressed me hard till there came great exhaustion on me; thereafter he let me off and said, "Read." I replied, "I cannot read." Then he took me and pressed me hard for the second time until there appeared a great exhaustion on me; thereafter he let me off. He said, "Read." I said, "I cannot read." Like anyone who had been grabbed by an angel (some traditions say he was grabbed by the throat), he became frightened and ran home to his wife, who had her own rather interesting means of delineating whether he was telling the truth or not. She put him on each of her hips and asked him if he still saw the angel, to which he said yes. Then she took off her clothes in front of him and asked him again, and when he said no, she then believed he was receiving authentic revelations. ." Khadija then accompanied him to (her cousin) Waraqa bin Naufal bin Asad bin 'Abdul 'Uzza bin Qusai. Waraqa was the son of her paternal uncle, i.e., her father's brother, who during the Pre-Islamic Period became a Christian and used to write the Arabic writing and used to write of the Gospels in Arabic as much as Allah wished him to write. He was an old man and had lost his eyesight. Khadija said to him, "O my cousin! Listen to the story of your nephew." Waraqa asked, "O my nephew! What have you seen?" The Prophet described whatever he had seen. Waraqa said, "This is the same Namus (i.e., Gabriel, the Angel who keeps the secrets) whom Allah had sent to Moses. I wish I were young and could live up to the time when your people would turn you out." Allah's Apostle asked, "Will they turn meout?" Waraqa replied in the affirmative and said: "Never did a man come with something similar to what you have brought but was treated with hostility.

10

Let us ask some questions? Why would the angel Gabriel ask Muhammad to read when he could not read? How did Muhammad know it was Gabriel and not some other angel? This is obviously because it was Khadija's cousin Waraqa bin Naufal who claimed this and he was wrong to say Moses saw Gabriel because the Bible makes no such claims, in fact Moses knew Yahweh the God of the Hebrews face to face, so there was no need of an intermediary angel. The alleged angel that visited Muhammad never declared his name. Exodus 33:11 And the LORD spake unto Moses face to face, as a man speaketh unto his friend. Even Muhammad never claimed he saw an angel whose name is Gabriel, this misunderstanding was created by an alleged Christian who in fact did not know his Bible. Does it remind you of Christians today who do not know their Bibles who could be taken in by false prophets? This spirit from Allah claimed later that he was Gabriel, ironically after Waraqa claimed this. we shall leave this here and next week discuss the God of the Hebrews, i.e the one true God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob. http://www.mail-archive.com/better_personality@googlegroups.com/msg01991.html :

What is Islam in Hinduism

Good Information--a must read--an article by a Muslim Scholar. Customs and beliefs are common and coincide with two major religions of the world is amazing,well how much truth in it is debatable,however,interesting details. Information given by Nadeem Khan,a Muslim Scholar. What is Islam in Hinduism

11

An inscription and a Greek account fix Muhammad's birth in 552, not 570. Muhammad's career took place not in Mecca but hundreds of kilometres to the north. Yehuda Nevo.

The classical Arabic language was developed not in today's Saudi Arabia but in the Levant.

Long before Islam came in to existence, Kaaba, in Mecca in Saudi Arabia was a pilgrimage site.

The word Kaaba might have come from the Tamil Language which originated around 1700BC. In Tamil Nadu Kabaalishwaran temple is Lord Shiva's temple and Kabaali refers to Lord Shiva. The black stone at Kaaba is held sacred and holy in Islam and is called "Hajre Aswad" from the Sanskrit word Sanghey Ashweta or Non-white stone. The Shiva Lingam is also called Sanghey Ashweta. So what is in Kaaba could be the same what Hindus worship.???? The pedestal Maqam-E-Ibrahim at the centre of the Kaaba is octagonal in shape. In Hinduism, the pedestal of Brahma the creator is also octagonal in shape. Muslim pilgrims visiting the Kaaba temple go around it seven times. In no other mosque does the circumambulation prevail. Hindus invariably circumambulate or Pradakshina, around their deities. This is yet another proof that the Kaaba shrine is a pre-Islamic. In Shiva temples Hindus always practice circumambulation or Pradakshina. Just as in Hinduism, the custom of circumambulation by muslim pilgrims around the entire Kaaba building seven times,,,,, shows that the claim that in Islam they don't worship stones is not true. Allah was one of the deities in Kaaba long before Islam was founded. It might come as a stunning revelation to many that the word `ALLAH' itself is Sanskrit. In Sanskrit language Allah, Akka and Amba are synonyms.

12

They signify a goddess or mother. The term `ALLAH' forms part of Sanskrit chants invoking goddess Durga, also known as Bhavani, Chandi and Mahishasurmardini. The Islamic word for God is., therefore, not an innovation but the ancient Sanskrit appellation retained and continued by Islam. Allah means mother or goddess and mother goddess.

The King Vikramaditya inscription was found on a gold dish hung inside the Kaaba shrine in Mecca, proving beyond doubt that the Arabian Peninsula formed a part of his Indian Empire. (Ref: page 315 of a volume known as `Sayar-ul-Okul' treasured in the Makhtab-e- Sultania library in Istanbul, Turkey). King Vikrama's preachers had succeeded in spreading the Vedic Hindu sacred scriptures in Arabia and Arabs were once followers of the Indian Vedic way of life. The annual fair known as OKAJ which used to be held every year around the Kaaba temple in Mecca and ,,,, the present annual hajj of the Muslims Islamic congregation. . to the Kaaba is of earlier pre-

Even to this day ancient Siva emblems can be seen. It is the Shankara (Siva) stone that Muslim pilgrims reverently touch and kiss in the Kaaba. Muslims shave their head and beard and don special sacred attire that consists of two seamless sheets of white cloth. One is to be worn round the waist and the other over the shoulders. Both these rites are remnants of the old Vedic practice of entering Hindu temples clean and with holy seamless white sheets. According to the Encyclopedia Britannica, the Kaaba has 360 idols.

Traditional accounts mention that one of the deities among the 360 destroyed when the place was stormed was that of Saturn; another was of the Moon and yet another was one called Allah.
That shows that in the Kaaba the Arabs worshipped the nine planets in pre-Islamic days. In India the practice of `Navagraha' puja, that is worship of the nine planets, is still in vogue.

13

Two of these nine are Saturn and Moon. In India the crescent moon is always painted across the forehead of the Siva symbol. Since that symbol was associated with the Siva emblem in Kaaba it came to be grafted on the flag of Islam. The Hindu Vedic letter in Sanskrit "OM" if seen in a mirror one can see the Arabic numbers 786 and this is the most sacred number for Muslims and copies of the Arabic Koran have the mysterious figure 786 imprinted on them.

In their ignorance simply they do not realize that this special number is nothing more than the holiest of Vedic symbols misread and ,,,,,,, none of the Arabic scholar has been able to determine how they chose 786 as the sacred for them. In short Muslims are also going around Siva Lingam at Kaaba, seven times as Hindus go around it seven times. A few miles away from Mecca are a big signboard which bars the entry of any non-Muslim into the area. This is a reminder of the days when the Kaaba was stormed and captured solely for the newly established faith of Islam. The object in barring entry of non-Muslims was obviously to prevent its recapture. Kaaba is clothed in a black shroud. This custom also originated from the days when it was thought necessary to discourage its recapture by camouflaging it. Another Hindu tradition associated with the Kaaba is that of the sacred stream Ganga (sacred waters of the Ganges river). According to the Hindu tradition Ganga is also inseparable from the Shiva emblem as the crescent moon. Wherever there is a Siva emblem, Ganga must co-exist. True to that association a sacred fount exists near the Kaaba. Its water is held sacred because it has been traditionally regarded as Ganga since pre-Islamic times (Zam-Zam water).

Brahmin Culture and Tradition The black stone at Kaaba called Sangey Ashwad believed to be derieved from the word Ashwet=Not white, i.e black. The black stone is facing east. As a result all those who touch this stone face west as opposite to Hindus who face east. This is nothing but a Shiva linga which was once the presiding deity at the place of Kaaba before Islamic invasion. The stone is said to be oval in shape which is a coincidence to the fact that all Shiva lingas are in this shape. It is well known that Islam prohibits the worship of idols. Still this stone is given a lot of importance. The reason would be because, Muhammed destroyed all the other statues of various gods but feared to do the same with this one as this was chief deity. Many temples of Shiva in south India are called Kaabaleshwara which is again a coincidence. The vedic ideas maybe supressed but never can they be destroyed.

15

This is the picture of the Kaaba. Note that most people are dressed in the style of Indian pandits/priests wearing the dhoti and shalya. This is in accordance with the vedic tradition of entering temples with cleanliness. A black drape is put over the entire shrine itself which is to prevent the recaputring of this place.

Just as a coincidence a water stream flows just near to the shrine. Ganga is an emblem always fixed with Lord Shiva. This water is collected even to this day and is regarded as holy water(zam zam water).

A signboard prohibiting the entry of non-muslims in order to avoid recapture.

Like Simon P Rengka likes this. THE KAABA A HINDU SHRINE? Lets examine the evidence we have. Arabia is an abbreviation. The original word even today is Arbasthan. It originates in Arvasthan. As observed earlier Sanskrit "V" changes into "B". Arva in Sanskrit means a horse. Arvasthan signifies a land of horses, and as we all know Arabia is famous for its horses. Its central pilgrim centre, Mecca is also a Sanskrit name. Makha in Sanskrit signifies a sacrificial fire. Since Vedic fire worship was prevalent all over West Asia in pre-Islamic days Makha signifies the place which had an important shrine of fire worship. ANTHOLOGY OF ANCIENT ARABIC POETRY: SAYAR-UL-OKUL In Istanbul in Turkey, there is a famous library called Makteb-e-Sultania which is reputed to have the largest collection of ancient West Asian literature. In the Arabic Section of that library is an anthology of ancient Arabic poetry. That anthology was compiled from an earlier work in A.D. 1742 under the orders of the Turkish ruler Sultan Salim. It throws considerable light on the social life, customs, manners and entertainment forms in ancient Arabia. The book also contains an elaborate description of the ancient Mecca shrine, the town and the annual fair known as OKAJ which used to be held there every year. This should convince readers that the annual Haj of the Muslims to the Kaaba is only a continuation of the old fair and not a new practice. But the OKAJ fair was far from a carnival. It provided a forum for the elite and learned to discuss the social, religious, political, literary and other aspects of the Vedic culture then pervading Arabia. Sayar-ul-Okul asserts that the conclusions reached at those discussions were widely respected througout Arabia. Mecca, therefore, followed the Varanasi tradition of providing a seat for important discussions among the learned while the masses congregated there for

19

spiritual bliss. The principal shrines at both Varanasi in India and at Mecca in Arvasthan were Shiva temples. Even to this day the central object of veneration at both Mecca and Varanasi continues to be the ancient Mahadeva emblems. It is the Shankara stone which Muslim pilgrims reverently touch and kiss in the Kaaba. ENTRY OF NON-MUSLIMS FORBIDDEN A few miles away from Mecca is a big signboard which forbids entry to any non-Muslim in the area. This is a reminder of the days when the Shrine was stormed and captured solely for the newly established faith of Islam. The object obviously was to prevent its recapture. ALLAH THE SANSKRIT WORD = mother Allah is a Sanskrit word. In Sanskrit Allah and Amba are synonyms. They signify a goddess or mother. The term Allah appears in Sanskrit chants while invoking goddess Durga i.e. Bhavani. The Islamic word Allah for God is therefore not an innovation but the ancient Sanskrit appellation retained and continued to be used by Islam. 7 PERAMBULATIONS At Hindu wedding ceremonies the bride and bridegroom go round the sacred fire seven times. the practice of seven perambultions around the Kaaba shrine in Mecca is, therefore, a Hindu Vedic custom. It is also a proof that Mecca was Makha or the shrine of the sacred fire around which worshippers made seven perambulations. SAYAR-UL-OKUL SAYAR-UL-OKUL is a poem by UMAR-BINE-HASSNAM (Poetic Title: ABBUL-HIQAM meaning Father of Knowledge). He was an uncle of prophet Mohammed. He refused to get converted to Islam. He died a martyr at the hands of Muslim fanatics who wanted to wipe out non-Muslims. He was a renowned poet and wrote many verses in praise of Shiva. One of these has survived on page 235 of Sair-Ul-Okul and reads as follows:

20

Kafavomal fikra min ulumin Tab asayru Kaluwan amataul Hawa was Tajakhru We Tajakhayroba udan Kalalwade-E Liboawa Walukayanay jatally, hay Yauma Tab asayru Wa Abalolha ajabu armeeman MAHADEVA Manojail ilamuddin minhum wa sayattaru Wa Sahabi Kay-yam feema-Kamil MINDAY Yauman Wa Yakulum no latabahan foeennak Tawjjaru Massayaray akhalakan hasanan Kullahum Najumum aja- at Summa gabul HINDU

which translates as:

The man who may spend his life in sin and irreligion or waste it in lechery and wrath If at least he relent and return to righteousness can he be saved? If but once he worship Mahadeva with a pure heart, he will attain the ultimate in spirituality. Oh Lord Shiva exchange my entire life for but a day's sojourn in India where one attains salvation. But one pilgrimage there secures for one all merit and company of the truly great. FEW ASSUMPTIONS AND REASONINGDespite the fact that Muhammad had to destroy all traces of Hinduism in order to make his "new religion" work, he knew that in order to fool people convincingly he would have to borrow from the Vedic culture that surrounded him. Being illiterate he picked out rituals and symbols that he didn't understand and distorted and falsified them for his own ends. Here is a list of these distortions: 1. Muhammad destroyed all 360 idols, but even he could not summon the courage to completely obliterate the Shivling in the Kaaba. He entered the temple and kissed the black stone. The Shivling was so sacred that the man who so detested idol- worship ended up kissing the largest idol in the Kaaba. Later his followers in a fit of piety broke the Shivling and then out of remorse repatched it together again. Today it lies broken at seven places and held together by a silver band studded with silver nails, bearing the name "Sangey Aswad" which came from the Sanskrit Ashwet meaning non-white or black stone. 2. He jumbled up the Sanskrit words Nama and Yaja (which meant "bowing and worshipping" respectively) into a combination word Namaz and used that to describe his

21

prescribed method of prayer. 3. Because the Vedic custom was to pray facing the East, in his hatred for all things Hindu, he directed his followers to pray facing only the west. 4. The method of circling around a shrine seven times in a clockwise direction is an ancient Vedic custom. Muhammad with his lack of originality decided that the 7 ritual perambulations should be retained but again in his hatred of all things Vedic decided the direction of the perambulations should be anti-clockwise. 5. With his phobia of all things Vedic, Muhammad knew that the greatest reminder and threat to his forced brand of religion were the beautiful Vedic idols of Arabic temples. Thus he destroyed every idol he could find and made idol worship the greatest crime for a Muslim. Such a man could never have comprehended how an abstract concept can be conveyed through a symbolic representation in the form of an image. Thus he made all image representation a sin as well. 6. Vedic religion is known for its ancient oral tradition. It is well known that the Vedic culture emphasized oral debate and expression far more than the written word. In adition the oral recitation of Vedic scriptures was always done in a lyrical fashion, utilizing music and thus reaching a height of expression. In fear of this musical tradition Muhammad decided to forbid Music. 7. All Arabic copies of the Koran have the mysterious figure 786 imprinted on them . No Arabic scholar has been able to determine the choice of this particular number as divine. It is an established fact that Muhammad was illiterate therefore it is obvious that he would not be able to differentiate numbers from letters. This "magical" number is none other than the Vedic holy letter "OM" written in Sanskrit backwards. Most important is the Bhavishya Purana writteb by Maharshi Vedavyasa along with all other puranas. It clearly gives an incident where Lord Shiva warns Bhojaraja about MAHAMADA as the REINCARNATION OF DEMON TRIPURASURA who was once killed by Shiva himself. He warns him of Mahamada's illusionary powers and tells he to not enter those lands of the Mlecchas. Our own purana states this. Refer to the pictures for sanskrit text. There are many such instances where the symbols and rituals of Vedic culture were completely distorted and falsified by Muhammad in his bid to "create" his brand new religion. However in his haste to deceive and because of his ignorance and illiteracy, thousands of Vedic symbols still remain. Although they have been distorted beyond imagination, they still remain as solemn reminders of Arabia's glorious Vedic past. They can never be supressed. Plz read the description on each photo as well. http://indonesia.faithfreedom.org/forum/islam-dan-paganisme-t14009/ http://indonesia.faithfreedom.org/wiki/Muhammad_Susah_Lepas_dari_Agama_Asalnya As you have read the letter, you will note that it basically calls for promoting greater understanding and empathy (only) for the Muslim religion by fasting.

To offer a balanced and factual understanding of Islam, here are the undeniable truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. We will first examine the religion of Islam in brevity, in relation to other religions, and then proceed to the subject of fasting. Prophet Muhammad founded Islam. But unlike Prophets of all other religions who were inspired, directed and had dialogues with God himself, in the presence of numerous witnesses; but, the Quran in Surah 2:97 confirms that Angel Gabriel revealed the Quran to Prophet Muhammad by Allahs leave. So it seems Allahs monologues (revelations) was carried indirectly to Prophet Muhammad, without a single witness to these important monologues. These monologues received, are what is supposed to be in the Quran (Islams most Holy Tenet). But Prophet Muhammad was uneducated and completely illiterate (could not read or write), and with also a poor memory, unlike prophets of other religions, who were well educated. [The Question is, why didnt Allah have a dialogue directly, (as with other prophets), instead of treating Prophet Muhammad as third rate, by going through a third party?] The Hindu Vedas have more than 50,000 verses. The Buddhist Scriptures is more than 30,000 verses, the Taoists have more than 20,000 verses, the Bahais Scriptures, comprise 12,000 verses, against the Qurans 6,241 verses (Quran is no match). The Quran is one book, whereas the Bible comprises 66 books. The Quran has 433 pages (including List of Surah and General Index - in total), whereas the Bible is of 1,709 pages (not including pages on Foreword, Preface, List of Contents, 66 Book Covers, Map Index and Subject Index) (No match at all). The verses in the Bible amount to a voluminous 31,173 (23,214 + 7,959) against the Quran's paltry 6,241 verses. The Quran has 114 Surah (chapters) against the Bibles 1,189 chapters. The Bible is made up of an incredible 774,746 (593,493 + 181,253) words. (The Quran is no match at all). In substance, the Quran states in Surah 22:52 that Allah removed Satans verses in the Quran. (One wonders, why was Satans verses in the Quran in the first place). Also in Surah 16:101 Allah confirms that he removed some of his verses and replaced them with other verses. (One wonders, why Allah had to change/improve/polish his own works), but our God, the Almighty, did not need to make improvements and corrections in his Bible, as he is the One True God, perfect the first time, and supreme. (Why couldnt Allah get it right the first time?) Allah confirms in Surah 2:106 Such of our revelations as We abrogate (cancel) or cause to be forgotten, We bring (in place) one better or the like thereof. (Canceling verses in the Quran? Forgotten? Why did Allah make such mistakes?) The word Islam means to submit or surrender to Allah (Muslim's God). In surah 9:29, Muslims are commanded to kill Jews and Christians who do not submit or surrender to Allah. But the One true God Almighty only calls us to love everyone, unlike Allah. But in 9:5 Allah commands Muslims to slay (kill) all Idolaters. [But I suppose it is okay with

23

Allah for Muslims to pray to a stone structure (Kaaba), and the black Stone embedded on its wall. (What hypocrisy?)] Allah further says in the Quran to slay (kill) transgressors in Surah 2:191 and religion is for Allah (only). The word transgressors is as elastic as can be, and can mean anything. So how would anyone know the limits set to qualify as a transgressor (especially when there is no limits mentioned anywhere in the Quran)? How can a Muslim apply a judgment on a non-Muslim for transgression without even knowing what transgression means (so it becomes a free for all, based on each individual perception, and authorised by the Quran/Allah)? When the school authorities call for empathy, they should first ask Muslims to empathise with the non-Muslims, who are at a loss with such ill defined, utterly unfair, all encompassing and wicked pronouncements of this Allah against them. What if the non-Muslims apply this same Surah on the Muslims? Isnt empathy a two way street? But we civilised non-Muslims, do not subscribe to a religion with such savage, inhuman, intolerant and evil hypothesis. (Allah is a Sanskrit word, specifically applied, from 2,500 B.C. to chant the Hindu Goddess Durga, spiritual spouse of Lord Siva). Muslims used to face Mecca (Kaaba) to pray initially. The Quran confirms, the direction to pray was changed from Mecca to Jerusalem (ignoring the Kaaba). And hundreds of years later, another correction was made, to face Mecca again; all as per Surah 2:142 145. As God is everywhere, all non-Muslim religions are free to face in any direction to pray, and God would listen. Why try to focus on one spot on earth (Is Allah squatting there)? As the earth is round, the Muslims are actually producing a trajectory of focus, out to space. Technically, the American Muslims should look down towards their feet, through the earth, to come out on the other side of the Globe, towards Mecca. Unless you are within sight of the Kaaba, all Muslims are actually facing outer space to pray, and not Mecca. Didnt Allah know the world is round, if he did create it? But it gets even better, when Allah confirms the earth is flat as in Surah 15:19, 78:6 & 88:20. In Surah 18:87 Allah specifically, states the sun sets into a muddy spring water on planet earth. (How the sun rises, daily, is another silly story as in Surah 18:91). In Surah 4:7-14 Allah proclaims his Inheritance Law in painstaking detail; but the problem is, which ever way one computes, it doesnt add up to 100% of the available inheritance (who goofed?). The Quran teaches in Surah 15:19, 21:31, 31:10, 78:7 & 88:19 that Allah threw down mountains, like pegs, to prevent the earth from shaking/wobbling. (Now, this will send Geologists & Volcanologists dumbfounded). In Surah 41:9-12, Allah confirms that he created the earth and the Heavens in two days, but in Surah 2:117 Allah confirms he created the Heavens and earth instantaneously. Allah goes further to confirm in Surah 7:54, 10:3, 11:7, & 25:59 that he took six days. But then again, Allah elaborates in Surah 41:9 to 12, to describe his creation of the Heavens and earth in 8 (2+4+2) days. (Now really, who is confused?). A Muslim male inherits double that of a Muslim female, as stated in surah 4:11 and also a woman is only half a male witness. In surah 4:34 a Muslim husband is to whip (flog) his wife/wives to correct them, until she submits to him. There is no such gender

24

discrimination and savagery in non-Muslim religions and every Christian is equal, in the eyes of God. To spread Islam, Allah commands Muslims to kill unbelievers in the name of Allah, as in Surah 4:74. In the Bible, God tells us to love one another, and to show others by example. In substance, the Quran has no Prophecy, no Miracles, no History, no Geography, no Chronology, no sequence, no Parables, no Biography of anyone, just a relatively small book of jumbled up verses of general dos and dont. Islam is a complete miss-match with any other religion and in any standard, whichever way you look at it. These are undeniable facts. (There are many more, contradictions, errors, stupidity, hatred, absurdity, violence, gender bias, savagery, intolerance, evil, in the Quran, that to associate it with God is blasphemy). Now lets go to the subject of fasting. Generally, all religions do practise fasting. The logic is to experience the suffering of the starving/poor; and also to share the sacrificed food/money with the starving/poor. But how does anyone fasting, ever understand a religion better, as claimed by the R.O. I. School authorities, really baffles me? In Islam, over a 28 day period, fasting is practiced during daylight hours only (for about 12 hours), and the Muslims eat 3 to 5 very heavy meals, every 3 hours or so, over the hours of darkness, every night (when Allah cant see?) to more than replace the missed food during the daylight hours. But by fasting during the day and over-eating (stuffing) in the night, the Muslims are actually spending more money and consuming more food than usual, in 24 hours; and no honest sacrifice is made, for the starving/poor. Later, they hypocritically come out with even more money/food pretending to share with the poor, what was never really sacrificed. Except for the first 2 days, conditioning your body to adapt to the consumption of food at night, instead of the day, (for example, night shift workers) defeats the very logical purpose of fasting and God knows no real sacrifice was made for the starving/poor, and the Muslims are cheating. This is another falsehood of Islam. Havent the non-Muslims shown genuine empathy to the Muslims, by providing shelter and sustenance in their own numerous countries worldwide, when these Muslims came fleeing from persecution from their own Muslim comrades? In reply, to our kindness and generosity, the Muslims killed thousands of innocent non-Muslim men, women and children, in Bali, the Philippines, Jakarta, Xinjiang, Kashmir, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Sudan, Istanbul, Morocco, Algeria, Kenya, Chad, Niger, Chechnya, New York, Washington, (President Bush said in UK, These are not dreams, but the reality). Everyone knows the discrimination, abuse, sufferings, maiming, killings, etc inflicted on the non-Muslims by the Muslims, worldwide. No empathy was,

25

and is shown by the Muslims for the non-Muslims. In fact, it has been shown on TV, the Muslims rejoice when non-Muslims are blown into unrecognisable bits and pieces. In reality; we are already aware, of every Muslim terrorist group being led by a religious leader, well versed in the Quran. We are also aware of innocent-looking Muslims (around us) funded these terrorists for terror. You cant take the Quran from a Muslim; but he will discard the Quran, on his own, if he becomes a non-Muslim. (I am an example of that). Where did the Muslim understanding go to (or do they have any conscience at all, through their Islamic nurturing), for the non-Muslims? Now, honestly, who needs understanding and empathy against all this savagery, intolerance and evil? http://books.google.co.id/books?id=9B7ty0uerK8C&pg=PA330&lpg=PA330&dq=allah+ in+sanskrit+dURGA&source=bl&ots=gHjfrxceFs&sig=wDzgjZc4Qs_iBilPskckHUIphs&hl=id&sa=X&ei=_VU7T9nHE8XWrQe1oqSHAQ&ved=0CF8Q6 AEwBw#v=onepage&q=allah%20in%20sanskrit%20dURGA&f=false :: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Did_Islam_originate_from_Hinduism Muhammad belonged to the Qurayshi Tribe of Mecca. The Qurayshi were particularly devoted to Goddess Alla (Durga) and the famous Shivling of the Kaaba Temple. The fact that the Shivling remains to this day in the Kaaba is solely due to the fact that it happened to be the Qurayshi tribe's faceless Family Deity. Muhammad's name itself came from Mahadeva, which is another cognate for Lord Shiva. Muhammad's own uncle, Umar-BinE-Hassham was a staunch Hindu and fervent devotee of Lord Shiva. He was a renowned poet and wrote many verses in praise of Shiva. One of these has survived on page 235 of Sair-Ul-Okul and reads as follows: Kafavomal fikra min ulumin Tab asayru Kaluwan amataul Hawa was Tajakhru We Tajakhayroba udan Kalalwade-E Liboawa Walukayanay jatally, hay Yauma Tab asayru Wa Abalolha ajabu armeeman MAHADEVA Manojail ilamuddin minhum WA sayattaru Wa Sahabi Kay-yam feema-Kamil MINDAY Yauman Wa Yakulum no latabahan foeennak Tawjjaru Massayaray akhalakan hasanan Kullahum Najumum aja- at Summa gabul HINDU which translates as: The man who may spend his life in sin and irreligion or waste it in lechery and wrath If at least he relent and return to righteousness can he be saved? If but once he worship Mahadeva with a pure

26

heart, he will attain the ultimate in spirituality. Oh Lord Shiva exchange my entire life for but a day's sojourn in India where one attains salvation. But one pilgrimage there secures for one all merit and company of the truly great. Muhammad's uncle was one of the resident priests of the Shiv temple known as "Kaaba". This sacred sanctum was decorated in an extremely rich and beautiful fashion. The Kaaba was astronomically oriented to face the winds. The minor axis of the rectangular base of the Kaaba was solistically aligned towards summer sunrise and winter sunset. It contained 360 statues of Vedic deities and was a shrine primarily associated with sun worship. The temple was an architectural representation of an interlocking set of theories covering virtually all creation and comprehending chemistry, physics, cosmology, meteorology and medicine. Each wall or corner of the Kaaba was associated with a specific region of the world. Thus this glorious Hindu temple was made to symbolically represent a microcosm of the universe. The Arabs would face east when praying. This representation of a microcosm demonstrated by the eight directional structure was derived from the Tantric pattern of Hinduism. Right at the centre of the Kaaba was the octogonal pedestal of Bramha the creator. Today this very pedestal is called Maqam-E-Ibrahim by the Muslims.

However, more significant was the fact that the Kaaba was an extremely rich and ornate temple. On its walls hung innumerable gold plaques commemorating the winners of the annual poetry competition known as the Okaj fair. There were gold, silver and precious gems everywhere. It is no wonder that Muhammad armed with his facade of a new brand of religion set out to capture the immense wealth of the Vedic shrine of Mecca. After plundering the riches of the Kaaba, the wealth enabled him to systematically destroy all traces of the religion that threatened him so directly. It is an indisputable fact that money will make any low criminal devoutly religious in a hurry. Despite the fact that Muhammad had to destroy all traces of Hinduism in order to make his "new religion" work, he knew that he would had to borrow from the Vedic culture that surrounded him. Muhammad destroyed all 360 idols, but even he could not summon the courage to completely obliterate the Shivling in the Kaaba. He entered the temple and kissed the black stone. The Shivling was so sacred that the man who so detested idol- worship ended up kissing the largest idol in the Kaaba. Later his followers in a fit of piety broke the Shivling and then out of remorse repatched it together again. Today it lies broken at seven places and held together by a silver band studded with silver nails, bearing the

27

name "Sangey Aswad" which came from the Sanskrit Ashwet meaning non-white or black stone. He jumbled up the Sanskrit words Nama and Yaja (which meant "bowing and worshipping" respectively) into a combination word Namaz and used that to describe his prescribed method of prayer. In fact the rise of Islam put a full stop to all the previous knowledge of Arabia. The imperialistic message of Islam diverted all energies into raiding, looting and destruction. The incentive to learn and preserve the Vedic wisdom that had thrived in Arabia for so many centuries, was wiped out by the brutal pressure of Islam. Making easy money through loot and massacre was far more appealing than upholding the tenets of ancient knowledge. Gone were the schools, teachers, libraries, poets, artists, philosophers and scholars that had littered the Vedic landscape of Arabia like stars. Everyone had to become a raider if not from choice then for the sake of surviving the absolute intolerance of dissenters, that Islam preached. Thus was the light of learning extinguished in Arabia. " Additionally, Said a 'Dr Sharma' "As you are aware, that al-Quran (Koran) states that knowledge is the lost property of the believer and he should gather it wherever he can. So what I am about to relay to you is enlightening and already known to true scholars of Islam. However if you are a faithful Muslim then it will be a revelation which will change your entire outlook on the world and Islam. Feel free to forward this testimony to your fellow brethren.

A recent archaeological find in Kuwait unearthed a gold-plated statue of the Hindu deity Ganesh. A Muslim resident of Kuwait requested historical research material that can help explain the connection between Hindu civilization and Arabia. Glancing through some research material recently, I was pleasantly surprised to come across a reference to a King Vikramaditya inscription found in the Kaaba in Mecca proving beyond doubt that the Arabian Peninsula formed a part of his Indian Empire. The text of the crucial Vikramaditya inscription, found inscribed on a gold dish hung inside the Kaaba shrine in Mecca, is found recorded on page 315 of a volume known as 'Sayar-ul-Okul' treasured in the Makhtab-e-Sultania library in Istanbul, Turkey. Rendered in simple English the inscription says:

28

"Fortunate are those who were born (and lived) during king Vikram's reign. He was a noble, generous dutiful ruler, devoted to the welfare of his subjects. Nevertheless, at that time we Arabs, oblivious of God, were lost in sensual pleasures. Plotting and torture were rampant. The darkness of ignorance had enveloped our country. As the lamb struggling for her life in the cruel paws of a wolf us Arabs were caught up in ignorance. The entire country was enveloped in darkness as intense as on a new moon night. However, the present dawn and pleasant sunshine of education is the result of the favour of the noble king Vikramaditya whose benevolent supervision did not lose sight of us- foreigners as we were. He spread his sacred religion amongst us and sent scholars whose brilliance shone like that of the sun from his country to ours. These scholars and preceptors through whose benevolence we were once again made cognisant of the presence of God, introduced to His sacred existence and put on the road of Truth had come to our country to preach their religion and impart education at King Vikramaditya's behest." If you would like to read the Arabic wording, I reproduce it hereunder in Roman script: "Itrashaphai Santu Ibikramatul Phahalameen Karimun Yartapheeha Wayosassaru Bihillahaya Samaini Ela Motakabberen Sihillaha Yuhee Quid min howa Yapakhara phajjal asari nahone osirom bayjayhalem. Yundan blabin Kajan blnaya khtoryaha sadunya kanateph netephi bejehalin Atadari bilamasa- rateen phakef tasabuhu kaunnieja majekaralhada walador. As hmiman burukankad toluho watastaru hihila Yakajibaymana balay kulk amarena phaneya jaunabilamary Bikramatum". A careful analysis of the above inscription enables us to draw the following conclusions: 1. That the ancient Indian empires may have extended up to the eastern boundaries of Arabia until Vikramaditya and that it was he who for the first time conquered Arabia. Because the inscription says that king Vikram who dispelled the darkness of ignorance from Arabia. 2. That, whatever their earlier faith, King Vikrama's preachers had succeeded in spreading the Vedic (based on the Vedas, the Hindu sacred scriptures)) way of life in Arabia. 3. That Indians to the Arabs imparted the knowledge of Indian arts and sciences directly by founding schools, academies and cultural centres. The belief, therefore, that visiting Arabs conveyed that knowledge to their own lands through their own indefatigable efforts and scholarship is unfounded. Having seen the far reaching and history shaking implications of the Arabic inscription concerning king Vikrama, we shall now piece together the story of its find. How it came

29

to be recorded and hung in the Kaaba in Mecca. What are the other proofs reinforcing the belief that Arabs were once followers of the Indian Vedic way of life and that tranquillity and education were ushered into Arabia by king Vikramaditya's scholars, educationists from an uneasy period of "ignorance and turmoil" mentioned in the inscription. In Istanbul, Turkey, there is a famous library called Makhatab-e-Sultania, which is reputed to have the largest collection of ancient West Asian literature. In the Arabic, section of that library is an anthology of ancient Arabic poetry. That anthology was compiled from an earlier work in A.D. 1742 under the orders of the Turkish ruler Sultan Salim.

The collection is regarded as the most important and authoritative anthology of ancient Arabic poetry. It throws considerable light on the social life, customs, manners and entertainment modes of ancient Arabia. The book also contains an elaborate description of the ancient shrine of Mecca, the town and the annual fair known as OKAJ, which used to be held every year around the Kaaba temple in Mecca. This should convince readers that the annual HAJ of the Muslims to the Kaaba is of earlier pre-Islamic congregation. However, the OKAJ fair was far from a carnival. It provided a forum for the elite and the learned to discuss the social, religious, political, literary and other aspects of the Vedic culture then pervading Arabia. 'Sayar-ul-Okul' asserts that the conclusion reached at those discussions was widely respected throughout Arabia. Mecca , therefore, followed the Varanasi tradition (of India) of providing a venue for important discussions among the learned while the masses congregated there for spiritual bliss. The principal shrines at both Varanasi in India and at Mecca in Arvasthan (Arabia) were Shiva temples. Even to this day ancient Mahadev (Shiva) emblems can be seen. It is the Shankara (Shiva) stone that Muslim pilgrims reverently touch and kiss in the Kaaba - black stone (al-Hajar-ulAswad). Arabic tradition has lost trace of the founding of the Kaaba temple. The discovery of the Vikramaditya inscription affords a clue. King Vikramaditya is known for his great devotion to Lord Mahadev (Shiva). At Ujjain ( India), the capital of Vikramaditya, exists the famous shrine of Mahakal, i.e., of Lord Shankara (Shiva) associated with Vikramaditya. Since according to the Vikramaditya inscription he spread the Vedic religion, who else but he could have founded the Kaaba temple in Mecca? A few miles away from Mecca is a big signboard that bars the entry of any non-Muslim into the area. This is a reminder of the days when the Kaaba was stormed and captured solely for the newly established faith of Islam. The object in barring entry of nonMuslims was obviously to prevent its recapture.

30

As the pilgrim proceeds towards Mecca, he is asked to shave his head and beard and to don special sacred attire that consists of two seamless sheets of white cloth. One is to be worn round the waist and the other over the shoulders. Both these rites are remnants of the old Vedic practice of entering Hindu temples clean- and with holy seamless white sheets. The main shrine in Mecca, which houses the Shiva emblem, the black stone (al-Hajar-ulAswad) and the entire cuboidal structure, is known as the Kaaba (from Sanskrit Garbha). It is clothed in a black shroud. That custom also originates from the days when it was thought necessary to discourage its recapture by camouflaging it. According to the Encyclopaedia Britannica, the Kaaba has 360 images. Traditional accounts mention that one of the deities among the 360 destroyed when the place was stormed was that of Saturn; another was of the Moon and yet another was one called Allah. That shows that in the Kaaba the Arabs worshipped the nine planets in pre-Islamic days. In India the practice of 'Navagraha' puja, that is worship of the nine planets, is still in vogue. Two of these nine are Saturn and Moon. In India, the crescent moon is always painted across the forehead of the Shiva symbol. Since that symbol was associated with the Shiva emblem in Kaaba it came to be grafted on the flag of Islam. Another Hindu tradition associated with the Kaaba is that of the sacred stream Ganga (sacred waters of the Ganges River ). According to the Hindu tradition, Ganga is also inseparable from the Shiva emblem as the crescent moon. Wherever there is a Shiva emblem, Ganga must co-exist. True to that association, a sacred fount exists near the Kaaba. Its water is held sacred because it has been traditionally regarded as Ganga since pre-Islamic times (Zam-Zam water). [Note: Even today, Muslim pilgrims who go to the Kaaba for Haj regard this Zam-Zam water with reverence and take some bottled water with them as sacred water.] Muslim pilgrims visiting the Kaaba temple go around it seven times. In no other mosque does the circumambulation (tawaf) prevail. Hindus invariably circumambulate around their deities. This is yet another proof that the Kaaba shrine is a pre-Islamic Indian Shiva temple where the Hindu practice of circumambulation is still meticulously observed. Since "Makha" means fire, the seven circumambulations also prove that Mecca was the seat of Indian fire-worship in the West Asia as even now the sacred fire (havan/makha/yajna) is circled by Hindus SEVEN times. Pilgrims (hajjis) endeavour to touch or even kiss the black stone (Shiva linga-emblem of Shiva) and the tribe of the Prophet Mohammed, the Qureshis are the custodians of the this black stone and tend to it

31

daily and apply scented oil to it. It might come as a stunning revelation to many that the word 'ALLAH' itself is Sanskrit. In Sanskrit language Allah, Akka. Ilah and Amba are synonyms. They signify a goddess or mother. The term 'ALLAH' forms part of Sanskrit chants invoking goddess Durga, also known as Bhavani, Parvati (Illa). The name of the consort of the mother goddess is Shiva, since ancient times known as Il. The Islamic word for God is therefore, not an innovation but the ancient Sanskrit appellation retained and continued by Islam. Allah means mother goddess and Shiva. (Il + Illah= Allah). Finally, rather than denigrate any other faith, try to see the commonality between all faiths. The Shiva lingam cannot be understood through rudimentary logic and your crude references to women mounting it for fertility is repugnant (just as the kissing of the black stone by faithful hajjis as representing the male organ). Shiva linga (Shiva emblem/sign) represents the regenerative aspect (Shiva) of the Almighty. We are all the creation of the universal being and all faiths are paths to the same destination, the sooner we agree on this matter, the better for all humanity. diatas diambil daRI: http://wiki.answers.com/Q/Did_Islam_originate_from_Hinduism#ixzz1mQsAfDTF http://www.islamreview.com/articles/balancedunderstanding.shtml : As you have read the letter, you will note that it basically calls for promoting greater understanding and empathy (only) for the Muslim religion by fasting. To offer a balanced and factual understanding of Islam, here are the undeniable truth, the whole truth and nothing but the truth. We will first examine the religion of Islam in brevity, in relation to other religions, and then proceed to the subject of fasting. Prophet Muhammad founded Islam. But unlike Prophets of all other religions who were inspired, directed and had dialogues with God himself, in the presence of numerous witnesses; but, the Quran in Surah 2:97 confirms that Angel Gabriel revealed the Quran to Prophet Muhammad by Allahs leave. So it seems Allahs monologues (revelations) was carried indirectly to Prophet Muhammad, without a single witness to these important monologues. These monologues received, are what is supposed to be in the Quran (Islams most Holy Tenet). But Prophet Muhammad was uneducated and completely illiterate (could not read or write), and with also a poor memory, unlike prophets of other religions, who were well educated. [The Question is, why didnt Allah have a dialogue directly, (as with other prophets), instead of treating Prophet Muhammad as third rate, by going through a third party?]

The Hindu Vedas have more than 50,000 verses. The Buddhist Scriptures is more than 30,000 verses, the Taoists have more than 20,000 verses, the Bahais Scriptures, comprise 12,000 verses, against the Qurans 6,241 verses (Quran is no match). The Quran is one book, whereas the Bible comprises 66 books. The Quran has 433 pages (including List of Surah and General Index - in total), whereas the Bible is of 1,709 pages (not including pages on Foreword, Preface, List of Contents, 66 Book Covers, Map Index and Subject Index) (No match at all). The verses in the Bible amount to a voluminous 31,173 (23,214 + 7,959) against the Quran's paltry 6,241 verses. The Quran has 114 Surah (chapters) against the Bibles 1,189 chapters. The Bible is made up of an incredible 774,746 (593,493 + 181,253) words. (The Quran is no match at all). In substance, the Quran states in Surah 22:52 that Allah removed Satans verses in the Quran. (One wonders, why was Satans verses in the Quran in the first place). Also in Surah 16:101 Allah confirms that he removed some of his verses and replaced them with other verses. (One wonders, why Allah had to change/improve/polish his own works), but our God, the Almighty, did not need to make improvements and corrections in his Bible, as he is the One True God, perfect the first time, and supreme. (Why couldnt Allah get it right the first time?) Allah confirms in Surah 2:106 Such of our revelations as We abrogate (cancel) or cause to be forgotten, We bring (in place) one better or the like thereof. (Canceling verses in the Quran? Forgotten? Why did Allah make such mistakes?) The word Islam means to submit or surrender to Allah (Muslim's God). In surah 9:29, Muslims are commanded to kill Jews and Christians who do not submit or surrender to Allah. But the One true God Almighty only calls us to love everyone, unlike Allah. But in 9:5 Allah commands Muslims to slay (kill) all Idolaters. [But I suppose it is okay with Allah for Muslims to pray to a stone structure (Kaaba), and the black Stone embedded on its wall. (What hypocrisy?)] Allah further says in the Quran to slay (kill) transgressors in Surah 2:191 and religion is for Allah (only). The word transgressors is as elastic as can be, and can mean anything. So how would anyone know the limits set to qualify as a transgressor (especially when there is no limits mentioned anywhere in the Quran)? How can a Muslim apply a judgment on a non-Muslim for transgression without even knowing what transgression means (so it becomes a free for all, based on each individual perception, and authorised by the Quran/Allah)? When the school authorities call for empathy, they should first ask Muslims to empathise with the non-Muslims, who are at a loss with such ill defined, utterly unfair, all encompassing and wicked pronouncements of this Allah against them. What if the non-Muslims apply this same Surah on the Muslims? Isnt empathy a two way street? But we civilised non-Muslims, do not subscribe to a religion with such savage, inhuman, intolerant and evil hypothesis. (Allah is a Sanskrit word, specifically

applied, from 2,500 B.C. to chant the Hindu Goddess Durga, spiritual spouse of Lord Siva). Muslims used to face Mecca (Kaaba) to pray initially. The Quran confirms, the direction to pray was changed from Mecca to Jerusalem (ignoring the Kaaba). And hundreds of years later, another correction was made, to face Mecca again; all as per Surah 2:142 145. As God is everywhere, all non-Muslim religions are free to face in any direction to pray, and God would listen. Why try to focus on one spot on earth (Is Allah squatting there)? As the earth is round, the Muslims are actually producing a trajectory of focus, out to space. Technically, the American Muslims should look down towards their feet, through the earth, to come out on the other side of the Globe, towards Mecca. Unless you are within sight of the Kaaba, all Muslims are actually facing outer space to pray, and not Mecca. Didnt Allah know the world is round, if he did create it? But it gets even better, when Allah confirms the earth is flat as in Surah 15:19, 78:6 & 88:20. In Surah 18:87 Allah specifically, states the sun sets into a muddy spring water on planet earth. (How the sun rises, daily, is another silly story as in Surah 18:91). In Surah 4:7-14 Allah proclaims his Inheritance Law in painstaking detail; but the problem is, which ever way one computes, it doesnt add up to 100% of the available inheritance (who goofed?). The Quran teaches in Surah 15:19, 21:31, 31:10, 78:7 & 88:19 that Allah threw down mountains, like pegs, to prevent the earth from shaking/wobbling. (Now, this will send Geologists & Volcanologists dumbfounded). In Surah 41:9-12, Allah confirms that he created the earth and the Heavens in two days, but in Surah 2:117 Allah confirms he created the Heavens and earth instantaneously. Allah goes further to confirm in Surah 7:54, 10:3, 11:7, & 25:59 that he took six days. But then again, Allah elaborates in Surah 41:9 to 12, to describe his creation of the Heavens and earth in 8 (2+4+2) days. (Now really, who is confused?). A Muslim male inherits double that of a Muslim female, as stated in surah 4:11 and also a woman is only half a male witness. In surah 4:34 a Muslim husband is to whip (flog) his wife/wives to correct them, until she submits to him. There is no such gender discrimination and savagery in non-Muslim religions and every Christian is equal, in the eyes of God. To spread Islam, Allah commands Muslims to kill unbelievers in the name of Allah, as in Surah 4:74. In the Bible, God tells us to love one another, and to show others by example. In substance, the Quran has no Prophecy, no Miracles, no History, no Geography, no Chronology, no sequence, no Parables, no Biography of anyone, just a relatively small book of jumbled up verses of general dos and dont. Islam is a complete miss-match with any other religion and in any standard, whichever way you look at it. These are undeniable facts.

(There are many more, contradictions, errors, stupidity, hatred, absurdity, violence, gender bias, savagery, intolerance, evil, in the Quran, that to associate it with God is blasphemy). Now lets go to the subject of fasting. Generally, all religions do practise fasting. The logic is to experience the suffering of the starving/poor; and also to share the sacrificed food/money with the starving/poor. But how does anyone fasting, ever understand a religion better, as claimed by the R.O. I. School authorities, really baffles me? In Islam, over a 28 day period, fasting is practiced during daylight hours only (for about 12 hours), and the Muslims eat 3 to 5 very heavy meals, every 3 hours or so, over the hours of darkness, every night (when Allah cant see?) to more than replace the missed food during the daylight hours. But by fasting during the day and over-eating (stuffing) in the night, the Muslims are actually spending more money and consuming more food than usual, in 24 hours; and no honest sacrifice is made, for the starving/poor. Later, they hypocritically come out with even more money/food pretending to share with the poor, what was never really sacrificed. Except for the first 2 days, conditioning your body to adapt to the consumption of food at night, instead of the day, (for example, night shift workers) defeats the very logical purpose of fasting and God knows no real sacrifice was made for the starving/poor, and the Muslims are cheating. This is another falsehood of Islam. Havent the non-Muslims shown genuine empathy to the Muslims, by providing shelter and sustenance in their own numerous countries worldwide, when these Muslims came fleeing from persecution from their own Muslim comrades? In reply, to our kindness and generosity, the Muslims killed thousands of innocent non-Muslim men, women and children, in Bali, the Philippines, Jakarta, Xinjiang, Kashmir, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Saudi Arabia, Iraq, Jordan, Israel, Sudan, Istanbul, Morocco, Algeria, Kenya, Chad, Niger, Chechnya, New York, Washington, (President Bush said in UK, These are not dreams, but the reality). Everyone knows the discrimination, abuse, sufferings, maiming, killings, etc inflicted on the non-Muslims by the Muslims, worldwide. No empathy was, and is shown by the Muslims for the non-Muslims. In fact, it has been shown on TV, the Muslims rejoice when non-Muslims are blown into unrecognisable bits and pieces. In reality; we are already aware, of every Muslim terrorist group being led by a religious leader, well versed in the Quran. We are also aware of innocent-looking Muslims (around us) funded these terrorists for terror. You cant take the Quran from a Muslim; but he will discard the Quran, on his own, if he becomes a non-Muslim. (I am an example of that). Where did the Muslim understanding go to (or do they have any conscience at all, through their Islamic nurturing), for the non-Muslims? Now, honestly, who needs understanding and empathy against all this savagery, intolerance and evil?
