  • The Crescent Moon

The crescent moon is on the top (head) of

Lord Shiva.​​ 

The crescent moon will be found in most Islamic mosques on the top.

  • The first pillar of Islam

 

“Shahada’ is the first and most important pillar of Islam. It means faith.

 

“Shraddha’ is Sanskrit for faith. Sanskrit is the oldest language in the world, and it is very clear that the word for the first pillar of Islam originates from the Sanskrit word ‘Shraddha’.

 

  • Peace

 

The literal meaning of the word ‘Shiva’ is peace.

 

The Muslims will often say that “Islam means Peace”, but this cannot be supported by the Quran. Based on the Quran, a Muslim is one who has submitted to Allah.

 

“We believe.” Say, “Ye have no faith; but ye (only) say, ‘We have submitted our wills to Allah’… (Quran 49:14)

 

“..to Him we have submitted (as Muslims).” (Quran 29:46)

 

The crescent moon is the symbol of Islam and this is also the symbol for Shiva, which means peace, and thus the only way the Muslims can claim their religion means peace is if they accept the Vedic element.

 

  • God existed before the material manifestation

 

“He (Muhammad) said, “First of all, there was​​ nothing but Allah, and (then He created His Throne). His throne was over the water, and He wrote everything in the Book (in the Heaven) and created the Heavens and the Earth…” (Sahih Bukhari Volume 4, Book 54, Hadith 414)

 

“Brahma, it is I, the Personality of Godhead, who was existing before the creation, when there was​​ nothing but Myself. Nor was there the material nature, the cause of this creation. That which you see now is also I, the Personality of Godhead, and after annihilation what remains will also be I, the Personality of Godhead.” (Lord Krishna, Srimad-Bhagavatam Canto 2, chapter 9, verse 33)

One can very clearly see that this Hadith teaching originates from the Vedic scripture, Srimad-Bhagavatam. Notice that Lord Krishna directly declares Himself as the origin, and the prophet of Islam makes the declaration for the Quranic God entity.

 

  • Material life is full of misery

“The life of this world is only the enjoyment of deception (a deceiving thing) … (Quran 3:185)

“From the highest planet in the material world down to the lowest, all are places of misery wherein repeated birth and death take place. But one who attains to My abode, O son of Kunti, never takes birth again.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 8.16)

One can very clearly see that this Quranic verse teaching originates from the Bhagavad-Gita.

 

  • Idol Worship or Deity of God Worship

The Muslims are very much against image or idol worship, but two pillars of Islam involve visiting, bowing down, circumambulating, kissing, and praying while facing a stone.​​ Five times a day, the Muslims pray while facing the Kabah, which has a black stone inside.​​ 

 

The Kabah is called the house of Allah (Quran 2.158). This means Allah is inside, and the Muslims bow down to the Kabah and pray. This means they pray to Allah, the black stone.

The​​ stone inside the Kabah is of the same color (black) and shape as found in most Vedic Temples. The black stone in Vedic Temples is called a Shiva Linga and it represents Lord Shiva. Some Vedic Temples also have a white Shiva Linga.

 

“Lo! (the mountains) As-Safa and Al-Marwah are among the indications of Allah. It is therefore no sin for him who is on pilgrimage to​​ the House (of Allah) or visiteth it, to go around them (as the pagan custom is). And he who doeth good of his own accord, (for him) lo! Allah is Responsive, Aware.” (Al-Quran 2.158 Pickthall)

 

“Abdullah ibn Sarjis reported, “I saw the bald one, i. e. ‘Umar ibn Khattib (Allah be pleased with him),​​ kissing the Stone​​ and saying: By Allah. I am kissing with full consciousness of the fact that you are a stone and that you can neither do any harm nor good; and if I had not seen Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) kissing you, I would not have kissed you. (Sahih Muslim Book 15, Hadith 275)

 

“So do what all the pilgrims do with the exception of the Tawaf (Circumambulation) round the Ka`ba..." (Sahih Bukhari 294)

 

“When the Prophet (mpuh) entered Mecca on the day of the Conquest, there were 360 idols around the Ka`ba…” (Sahih Bukhari 4287)

 

Based on the above and other Quranic and Hadith verses:

 

  • The Kabah is called the house of Allah. This means Allah is present inside and there is only one thing present inside, a black stone.

  • It is good deed to kiss and circumambulate the black stone. This is one of the pillars of Islam, Hajj. The Vedic followers also circumambulate Temples.

  • Salat is another pillar of Islam and this involves bowing down in the direction of the Kabah and praying. This means the Muslims are down to the black stone in prayer. This can be very clearly seen in the above picture.

  • The Prophet of Islam himself circumambulated and kissed the black stone, because he had some remnants of the Vedic custom of circumambulating what represents God. The Kabah is called the house of God based on the Quran (2.158).

  • The most sacred place on earth for the Muslims is the Kabah. The place where there were once 360 idols and now only one idol, the black stone. For thousands of years before the Quran, billions of humans bowed down in prayer to manifestation of God in an image form (idols) and even today, over a billion Muslims are bowing down to the Kabah in prayer to God.

 

 

There is value in visiting, facing, and circumambulating a stone, if it symbolizes God, otherwise it’s just stone reverence (idol worship). The Vedic followers bow down to God in an image form (Deity​​ of God) and the Muslims bow down to the black stone (an image). The aim is the same, prayer to God.

 

 

  • Muslims practice Yoga

In Sanskrit ‘Namas’ means bow. One of the pillars of Islam (Salat) is to perform Namaz. Which means bowing down to the Kabah in a Yoga posture (Balasana) to pray to Allah (see above and left picture).

  • Touching the forehead in respect

It is the Vedic custom for sportsmen to bow down and touch the forehead on the ground before a game. This is to thank mother earth and ultimately God for allowing the ground to be used for games. It is also a Vedic custom to touch the feet of others with the forehead to show respect. Some Vedic followers will touch the hand on the groud and then touch it to the forehead, this is a short cut to touching the ground with the forehead.

 

Muslim sportsmen, in particular Pakistani cricketers, also touch their forehead on the ground during or after a game to thank God. They are essentially following the Vedic custom. The Muslims claim not to worship images but they are very clearly bowing down to the ground (an image) in prayer to God.

 

Some Vedic followers and some Muslims will kiss the ground, instead of touching the ground with the forehead. This is a slight deviation from what the scriptures state.

 

The Prophet (mpuh) said, "I have been ordered to prostrate on seven bones i.e.​​ on the forehead​​ along with the tip of the nose and the Prophet (mpuh) pointed towards his nose, both hands, both knees and the toes of both feet and not to gather the clothes or the hair." (Sahih Bukhari 812)

 

  • God is Everywhere

 

“And to Allah belong the east and the west, so wherever you turn yourselves or your faces there is the Face of Allah (and He is High above, over His Throne). Surely! Allah is All-Sufficient for His creatures' needs, All-Knowing.” (Hilal & Khan, Quran 2:115)

 

“To Allah belong the east and the West: Whithersoever ye turn, there is the presence of Allah. For Allah is all-pervading, all-Knowing.” (Yusuf Ali, Quran 2:115)

 

“Everywhere are His Hands and Legs, His Eyes and Faces, and He hears everything. In this way the Supersoul exists.” (Bhagavad-Gita 13.14)

 

“The Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is greater than all, is attainable by unalloyed devotion. Although He is present in His abode, He is all-pervading, and everything is situated within Him.” (Bhagavad-Gita 8.22)

One can very clearly see that this Quranic verse teaching originates from the Bhagavad-Gita.

 

  • God’s will

You killed them not, but Allah killed them.​​ And you (Muhammad SAW) threw not when you did throw but Allah threw, that He might test the believers by a fair trial from Him. Verily, Allah is All-Hearer, All-Knower.” (Hilal & Khan, Quran 8:17)

 

“Therefore, get up. Prepare to fight and win glory. Conquer your enemies and enjoy a flourishing kingdom.​​ They are already put to death by My arrangement, and you, O Savyasacin, can be but an instrument in the fight.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 11.33)

One can very clearly see that this Quranic verse teaching originates from the Bhagavad-Gita.

 

  • ​​ The Rain

 

“Do you not see that Allah sends down rain from the sky” (Quran 39:21)

 

I give heat, and I withhold and send forth the rain” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.19)

 

“With a single fragment of myself I pervade and support this entire universe.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.42)

 

  • ​​ God is One

 

And insult not those whom they (disbelievers) worship besides Allah, lest they insult Allah wrongfully without knowledge…” (Hilal & Khan, Quran 6.108)

 

“Do not curse those who call (to worship) other than Allah, so that they don't curse Allah out of spite and ignorance…” (Quran 6.108)

 

“We believe in what was revealed to us, and in what was revealed to you; and our God and your God is One; and to Him we are submissive.” (Quran 29.46)

“Whatever a man may sacrifice to other gods, O son of Kunti, is really meant for Me alone, but it is offered without true understanding. I am the only enjoyer and master of all sacrifices. Therefore, those who do not recognize My true transcendental nature fall down.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.23-24)

One can see that the concept in these Quranic teachings originate from the Bhagavad-Gita.

 

  • ​​ Jihad – Fighting for God

 

The concept of fighting for God and going to heaven originates from Lord Krishna via the Bhagavad-Gita. The compilers of the Al-Quran took this knowledge from the Bhagavad-Gita and twisted the teaching.​​ 

 

“Jihad (holy fighting in Allah's Cause) is ordained for you (Muslims) though you dislike it, and it may be that you dislike a thing which is good for you and that you like a thing which is bad for you. Allah knows but you do not know.” (Hilal & Khan, Quran 2:216)

 

To the Muslims, Jihad means fighting for God and attaining the heavenly planets. This is yet another important proof which clearly shows that the knowledge in the Quran originates from the Vedic scriptures, but its adulterated Vedic knowledge. Jihad is very important for the Muslims, but they forget that the concept of fighting for God originates from Lord Krishna and is stated in the Bhagavad-Gita. 

 

“O Partha, happy are the ksatriyas to whom such fighting opportunities come unsought, opening for them the doors of the heavenly planets. If, however, you do not perform your religious duty of fighting, then you will certainly incur sins for neglecting your duties and thus lose your reputation as a fighter. (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.32-33)

 

In the above verse ‘ksatriays’ means authorized soldiers of a King or government and not bandits or extremists.

 

“O son of Kunti, either you will be killed on the battlefield and attain the heavenly planets, or you will conquer and enjoy the earthly kingdom. Therefore, get up with determination and fight.”  (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 2.37)

 

“Therefore, Arjuna, you should always think of Me in the form of Kṛṣṇa and at the same time carry out your prescribed duty of fighting. With your activities dedicated to Me and your mind and intelligence fixed on Me, you will attain Me without doubt.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 8.7)

 

 

Lord Krishna only instructs government or King authorized soldiers to engage in warfare and only against aggressors and not against anyone. Also, Lord Krishna never mentions that warfare should be between His followers (believers) and those who don’t follow Him (unbelievers). Warfare is between two enemies and not between people of different beliefs. The compilers of the Quran took the teachings of Lord Krishna from the Bhagavad-Gita and corrupted the intention for their own cause.

 

Lord Krishna instructed Arjuna to fight, because he was an authorized warrior of the King and war was declared onto him, and so it was his duty (job) to fight. Also, the Mahabharat war was not between people of different religions, both sides were of the same religion.

 

Fighting for God can only be attributed to Lord Krishna, because only He was personally present on the battlefield. In the Mahabharat war, many soldiers were killed from both sides and so there were many widows and daughters without a father. Not a single female was taken captive by any side. The Quran advocates taking females captive in wars, enjoying them, and selling them into slavery. Lord Krishna never advocated such barbaric actions. The compilers of the Quran gave some orders which are against logic.

 

“O Prophet! surely We have made lawful to you your wives whom you have given their dowries, and​​ those whom your right hand possesses out of those whom Allah has given to you as prisoners of war.” (Quran 33.50)

 

In the above Quranic verse, ‘right hand possesses’ means wives and daughters of men killed in war are taken captive. These females are enjoyed and kept as slaves, and some sold into slavery.

 

Even the founder of Islam, took females captive.

 

“Muhammad selected Safiyyah because of her beauty, made her his wife and gave a banquet at the wedding; then he had sex with Saffiyah at Sa`d-AsSahba..” (Sahih Bukhari 4.52.143)

 

  • ​​ Seven Heavens

 

“And We have built above you seven strong (heavens).” (Quran 78:12)

 

The Quran was written down around 1,400 years ago. The above teaching originates from the Vedic scriptures which were written down more than 5,000 years ago.

Vedic Origin:

The Vedic scripture called Srimad-Bhagavatam it mentions in many verses of 14 planetary systems in the universe. The earth is in the 7th system and there are 6 above the earth and 7 below. The 6 systems above are earth have heavenly planets and as the number increases, the planets in the system get more heavenly (strong heavens). The 7 below the earth are hellish planets and they get more hellish with lower number. ​​ The Quran mentions 7 heavens above the earth, this is a slight deviation from the Vedic knowledge which states 6 heavens above the earth.​​ 

​​ My dear son Nārada, know from me that there are seven lower planetary systems out of the total fourteen.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam 2.5.40-41) 

“My dear King, beneath this earth are seven other planets, known as Atala, Vitala, Sutala, Talātala, Mahātala, Rasātala and Pātāla. I have already explained the situation of the planetary systems of earth. The width and length of the seven lower planetary systems are calculated to be the same as those of earth.” (Srimad-Bhagavatam 5.24.7)

  • ​​ Allah means God in Arabic and is not the name of God

 

“Allah! there is no god but He! To Him belong the Most Beautiful Names.” (Al-Quran 20.8, Yusuf Ali Translation)

 

If Allah is the name of God, then why does it say in the above verse ‘to Him belong the Most Beautiful Names.”? It should say something like ‘Allah is the most beautiful name’?

 

God is great and thus He has no restrictions or limitations. He has many names including Krishna which means ‘All Attractive’. There is nobody who has proven to be more beautiful than Krishna and thus this is the most beautiful name of God.

 

  • ​​ God has Form

 

“No vision can grasp Him, but His Grasp is over all vision…” (Al-Quran 6.103)

The most important teaching of the Bhagavad-Gita is that God is a person with the most beautiful spiritual form.​​ Many Muslims believe that God has no form, using the above verse to support their belief, but some Muslims do believe that God has form. Based on the Quran, there is over whelming evidence to show that God has form.

Ibn 'Abbas said: "Muhammad saw his Lord." I said: "Did Allah not say: No vision can grasp Him, but He grasps all vision (6:103). He said: "Woe unto you! That is when He manifests His Light. But Muhammad saw his Lord two times." (Jami at-Tirmidhi 3279)

The above explanation by Abbas is very similar to a description of Lord Krishna by Arjuna in His universal form.

“Your form is difficult to see because of its glaring effulgence, spreading on all sides, like blazing fire or the immeasurable radiance of the sun. Yet I see this glowing form everywhere, adorned with various crowns, clubs and discs.” (Arjuna to Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 11.17)

Lord Krishna has the most beautiful spiritual form.

“The Supreme Personality of Godhead said: Those who fix their minds on​​ My personal form​​ and are always engaged in worshiping Me with great and transcendental faith are considered by Me to be most perfect.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 12.2)

 

“Fools deride Me when I descend in the human form. They do not know My transcendental nature as the Supreme Lord of all that be.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.11)

 

[1] We have a form which is like that of God.

[2] Allah has hands.

[3] Allah has two eyes.

[4] Allah has a face. Someone who is formless must also be faceless. The fact God has a face means he has form.

[5] There is nothing like God in the sense that He is great, and we are not great. His form is eternal and spiritual. Our form is temporary and material. We are subject to old age, disease, and death. God is not subject to old age, disease and death. He simply appears and exhibits His spiritual forms and activities.

[6] This means Allah has feet, hands, eyes, and ears.

[7] This Quranic verse is very clear. Allah can be seen, thus He has form.

 

1 “Allah created Adam in His image…” (Sahih Muslim 2841)

 

2 “What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with Both My Hands…” (Al-Quran 38.75)

 

3 “Under My Eye...” (Al-Quran 20.39)

 

“You should know that he is one-eyed, and Allah is not one-eyed..." (Sahih al-Bukhari 3337)

 

“And Allah is Seer of what ye do…” (Al-Quran 57.4)

 

4 “And the Face of your Lord full of Majesty and Honour will abide forever.” (Al-Quran 55.27)

 

" And to Allah belong the east and the west, so wherever you turn yourselves or your faces there is the Face of Allah." (Al-Quran 2.115)

 

5 “There is nothing like Him, and He is the All-Hearer, the All-Seer” (Al-Quran 42.11)

 

6 “Do they (the idols) have feet to walk, hands to hold things, eyes to see, and ears to hear? (Muhammad), tell them (the pagans) to call on their idols for help and to plan against Me without delay.” (Al-Quran 7.195)

7.​​ Some faces that Day shall be Nadirah (shining and radiant). Looking at their Lord (Allah); (Al-Quran 75.22-23)

 

  • ​​ God is Unborn

 

“He neither begets nor is born.” (Al-Quran 112:3)

 

Lord Krishna did not come out of the womb of a woman, like we do. He appeared next to a woman whom we call His mother. Also, He appeared fully clothed in a spiritual body. His body is not subjected to material decomposition like ours. This is the inconceivable greatness of God.​​ 

 

Lord Krishna is ‘unborn’ is mentioned in four verses of the Bhagavad-Gita and many times in other Vedic scriptures. Although He is unborn, He still appears to perform His transcendental activities. Therefore, He is called the Greatest. He can do anything and everything. People often limit what God can do based on their own limitations and perceptions. Thus, they cannot understand that God is a person like us, but He is great, and we are not. The brain surgeons are not like ordinary people, but still they are people. In a similar way, God looks like an ordinary person, but He is not like an ordinary person. God can do what He likes, and He is not limited by what we want Him to do. He appears in the material creation many times in various forms by His own will.

 

“Although I am unborn…” (Bhagavad-Gita 4.6). The Sanskrit words used in the Gita are ‘ajah’ and ‘ajam’ which both mean unborn.

 

“I am unborn and infallible…” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 7.25)

 

He who knows Me as the unborn…” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.3)

 

“You are the unborn…” (Arjuna to Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.12-13)

 

Even though God is unborn, He appears in His spiritual body. This is the inconceivable greatness of God.

 

“Although I am unborn, and My transcendental body never deteriorates, and although I am the Lord of all living entities, I still appear in every millennium in My original transcendental form.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 4.6)

 

 

 

 

Lord Krishna Creates by His Glancing

 

God is Great and thus He can do anything. He can create by merely glancing and like us. Lord Krishna impregnated the universes with matter by His glance. He impregnated the souls into material nature by His glance. Lord Krishna brought back the dead simply by His glance.

 

“The Lord glanced over them and brought them back to life…” (SB 8.6.37)

 

“He immediately brought them back to life by showering His Nectarian glance upon them…” (SB 10.15.49-50)

 

“He glances over the material world for the purpose of creating, maintaining and destroying it…” (SB 5.17.19)

 

“The individual souls in this world, who are manifested here when He glances upon His material creative energy…” (SB 10.38.11)

 

“In His form as Karanodakasayi Visnu, the Lord impregnates material nature by His glance…” (Sri Caitanya-caritamrta Adi 5.69)

 

  • ​​ God is in the heart

 

“Be aware that Allah comes between a man and his heart.” (Al-Quran 8:24)​​ 

It is Lord Krishna who is present within your heart, mine, and in the heart of all living beings. The individual soul is next to the super soul (Lord Krishna) in the heart.

“I am the Super soul, seated in the hearts of all living entities..(Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 10.20)

“I am in everyone’s heart as the Supersoul..” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 7.21)

“I am seated in everyone’s he art, and from Me come remembrance, knowledge..” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 15.15)

“The Supreme Lord is situated in everyone’s heart, O Arjuna, and is directing the wanderings of all living entities, who are seated as on a machine, made of the material energy.” (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 18.61)

It is very clear that Lord Krishna is the God who is between a man and his heart.

 

  • ​​ God is all knowing

“He is knowing of all things” (Al-Quran 2:29)

Unless God is a witness to all our actions, we cannot say nothing can escape without God knowing.

“I am the goal, the sustainer, the master,​​ the witness, the abode, the refuge, and the most dear friend. I am the creation and the annihilation, the basis of everything, the resting place and the eternal seed. (Lord Krishna, Bhagavad-Gita 9.18)

It is Lord Krishna who is the witness to all our actions and thus He is all knowing.

 

Conclusion

 

  • The first pillar of Islam (Shahada) originates from the Sanskrit word ‘Shraddha’.​​ 

  • The second pillar of Islam (Salat) entails bowing down,​​ Namaz​​ (Namas in Sanskrit) in a Yoga posture​​ (Balasana)​​ to pray to Allah, facing the Kabah.​​ 

  • The fifth pillar of Islam​​ (Hajj), entails visiting, kissing, and circumambulating a stone of the same color (black) and shape as found in most Vedic Temples.​​ 

  • The top of Islamic Mosques has the same symbol that is on top of Lord Shiva, a crescent moon.

  • Shiva means peace and the Muslims claim Islam is​​ for​​ peace​​ (for Shiva).

  • There are many Quranic teachings which have similarities to the teachings from the Bhagavad-Gita, teachings like fighting for God (Jihad).

 

The black stone inside the Kabah is a representation of​​ Lord​​ Shiva. The Quran states that the Kabah is the house of Allah, thus Lord Shiva is Allah.​​ The Bhagavad-Gita is the original and unadulterated teachings of Lord​​ Krishna,​​ and Lord Shiva is an​​ expansion of Lord Krishna.
