There are many human beings, most of the religions besides Islam,
they have the concept of anthropomorphism. Most of the religions besides Islam, have the concept of anthropomorphism. anthropomorphism means Almighty God taking forms.
And most of them besides Islam, they believe Almighty God to human for months, while other religions believe he took many times,
and they have a very good philosophy, that Almighty God, he's so holy, he's so pure. He does not know the shortcomings of the human beings. He does not know how do you mean the field when he's hurt? He does not know how did you make me feel vegetable. So therefore Mighty God, being so holy and pure, he became a human being, and came into this world to know what is good or what is bad for the human being so that he could lay down the rules for the human beings. On the face of it. It sounds like a very good logic, Almighty God, so holy, so pure, so pious, he does not know the shortcomings of the human being. How does he make me feel when he's hurt? When he's in trouble when
he's in pain? So he came on this earth he became a human being, to know what is good, what is bad for the human being,
as his people suppose, I manufacture a DVD player.
Do I have to become a DVD player? To know what is good? What is bad for the DVD player? What do I do, I write an instruction manual. That if you want to play the DVD, insert the DVD and press the play button. If you want to stop, press the stop button. If you want to skip press the skip button. Don't drop it from behind, it'll get damaged. Don't imagine unwanted luggage point. I write an instruction manual. I don't have to become a DVD player to know what is good or bad for the DVD player.
Similarly, Almighty God is the creator of the human beings, he does not have to become a human being to know what is good, what is bad for the human being what does he do? He reveals the instruction manual. And the last and final instruction manual for the human beings. It's the Glorious Quran. This Glorious Quran is the last and final instruction manual for the human beings, the do's and don'ts, what is good, what is bad for the human beings is given in this last and fine instruction manual, Doris Quran.
And Allah subhanaw taala does not have to come down himself to read the instruction manual. What does he do? He chooses a man amongst the men
and communicate with them on a higher level, who we call as messengers of Almighty God and reveals the message. So if you understand the concept of God
of Allah subhanho wa Taala in Islam, you will understand Islam in the right perspective.
So to understand the concept of God in various religions, you have to read the Scripture of that religion so that you understand religion in the right perspective.
