AND.....ISLAM BORROWED PRIMARILY FROM HINDU, BABYLONIAN AND HEBREW SOURCES:
Despite Islam having pagan roots, it's surprising that Muslims think it's an extension of Judaism and Christianity.
However, the chief God of the Kaaba that is Allah could be the El of the Babylonian-Hebrew traditions. If this is so then it could be mean that the pre-Islamic Arabs borrowed their Gods, customs and key-vocabulary from both the Hindus as well as from the Babylonians and Hebrews.
However, Alla is a generic Sanskrit word for a God.
Islam preaches PURE MONOTHEISM for ALL HUMANITY....while hinduism in practice is more confusing than the million gods worshipped by the devotees!
Even if we borrowed it from the Pagans and non pagans, we seem to have got is SPOT on:
"WORSHIP THE CREATOR AND NOT THE CREATION"
G-D IS ONE AND ONLY...G-D IS UNIQUE...G-D IS ETERNAL...G-D BEGETS NOT, NOR IS G-D BEGOTTEN AND THERE IS NOTHING/NONE LIKE G-D.
Now that's IRRESISTIBLE...AWE INSPIRING...HUMBLING....MOVING ...MIRACULOUS...MERCIFUL...!!
