00:00:01--> 00:00:04

Let's discuss the second pillar of Eman.

00:00:06--> 00:00:07

That is the angels.

00:00:09--> 00:00:20

There is no concept of angels in Hinduism, but they have a concept of super beings which can do work which a normal human we cannot do

00:00:21--> 00:00:22

in Islam

00:00:23--> 00:00:27

the angels are created by Allah subhanaw taala from light

00:00:29--> 00:00:44

they always obey the commandment of Allah subhanaw taala they don't have a free will of their own, and angels have been created for particular purposes for particular duties. For example, Archangel Gabriel has been created to get the revelation

00:00:45--> 00:00:48

of Allah subhanho wa Taala to his various messengers.

00:00:51--> 00:00:52

The third pillar of Eman

00:00:54--> 00:00:55

is his books.

00:00:57--> 00:01:00

First we'll discuss the books in Hinduism.

00:01:03--> 00:01:08

The sacred scriptures the sacred books of Hinduism can be categorized into two types.

00:01:10--> 00:01:13

One is the Shruti the other is the smithy.

00:01:14--> 00:01:21

Shruti means that which is perceived, which is heard, which is understood which is revealed

00:01:22--> 00:01:31

and the Sruthi is are considered to be the word of Almighty God. They are of divine origin, and they are of two types, the Vedas and the Upanishads.

00:01:33--> 00:01:46

The Veda is derived from Sanskrit word with which means knowledge. So Veda means knowledge or excellence. And basically there are four types of Vedas, right with God with some weight and a term of it.

00:01:47--> 00:01:48

The exact date

00:01:50--> 00:01:53

when the Vedas came into existence is unknown.

00:01:56--> 00:02:11

Which they exactly is unknown. The scholars differ. According to Swami Dayanand Saraswati, the founder of the Arya Samaj, he says that the Vedas are 1000 310 million years old.

00:02:12--> 00:02:19

But most of the scholars, including the majority of Hindu scholars, they say that the Vedas are approximately 4000 years old.

00:02:21--> 00:02:44

Exactly, who are the first person who had the weather is unknown, in which land it exactly came, is not known. Who was Rishi who wrote it, or to whom it was revealed is unknown. In spite of all these things, yet, the Hindus believe that the Veda is the word of God and it is the most sacred amongst all Hindu scriptures,

00:02:45--> 00:02:53

the national authority or the punishers there are more than 200 Upanishads the Indian culture puts a number of 108

00:02:54--> 00:03:03

and principal among them, some Satan, some say 12 and other Christian has mentioned 18 principle punishers you've compiled them in his book.

00:03:05--> 00:03:08

The other type of sacred books

00:03:10--> 00:03:14

are the snooty. snooty means that which is remembered

00:03:15--> 00:03:15

that memory

00:03:17--> 00:03:17

and

00:03:19--> 00:03:19

the smithy

00:03:21--> 00:03:40

Alessi create as compared to the Shruti and they are not considered to be of divine origin. They're not the word of Almighty God, but they're written by human beings. And mainly they contain the rules and regulation how a human being should lead his life and also called a Dharma shastra. I'm going to split the we have the 80 has

00:03:41--> 00:04:04

the two great epic which all of us know most of them will know. One is Rama and we deal with the story of Shri Ram, which most of the Indians know. The other is Mahabharata. We deal with the story of a feud between the cousins, the bundles, and the chorus and also deals with the story of Shri Krishna. And most of us, the Indians are aware of Marmara.

00:04:06--> 00:04:08

The most popular amongst the Scripture

00:04:09--> 00:04:12

is the Bhagavad Gita. Bhagavad Gita

00:04:13--> 00:04:19

is a part of Marburg it contains 18 chapters. It is part of the Bheeshma

00:04:20--> 00:04:25

chapter number 25, to 4218 chapters of Marmara.

00:04:27--> 00:04:59

It is a guidance given by Sri Krishnan to argue in the battlefield. The other sacred scriptures are the Puranas. Puranas means ancient in individual Purana Parana ancient so Purana mean ancient, it's very popular and mighty Chavez has compiled eight environments Puranas it deals with the stories of gods and deities and deals with the story of the creation of the universe. Principle amongst the Purana is the bishop Khurana talking about the future

00:05:01--> 00:05:13

There are various other Hindu scriptures we also have the manu smithy, the law of Manu and various in the scriptures, but the most sacred amongst all the Scripture, Hindu scripture is the way the if anything contradicts with the Veda.

00:05:14--> 00:05:16

The way that has to be followed, it is number one in authority.

00:05:18--> 00:05:20

Let's discuss the books in Islam.

00:05:22--> 00:05:44

Allah says in the Quran in surah rod, chapter number 13 was the muta did, Allah says when he called the gentleman Kitab and every age have revealed a book. Almighty God has sent several revelations. But the last and final revelation is the Glorious Quran, which was revealed to the last and final messenger, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him

00:05:45--> 00:06:17

and all the revelations, the previous revelation before the Quran, was sent only for a particular group of people and was supposed to be followed till a particular time period. But the last and final revelation the Glorious Quran was not revealed only for the Muslim or the Arabs. It was revealed for the whole of humankind. As I mentioned the Quran in surah Ibrahim, chapter 14 Verse number one, and sorry, Brahim, chapter number 14, verse 52, in Surah Baqarah Chapter number two was the 185 as well as in Surah Azumah, chapter 39, verse number 41, that the Quran has been revealed for the whole of humankind.

00:06:18--> 00:06:20

This is the most sacred

00:06:21--> 00:06:26

amongst the scripture of Islam. Number one, it is the word of Almighty God

00:06:28--> 00:06:29

and supplementary

00:06:31--> 00:06:49

to the Glorious Quran, the word of Allah subhanho wa Taala is the authentic scenes, the say Hadith of the last and final messenger, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. The authentic hadith will never contain the Quran. There will never be a conflict between the authentic hadith and the Glorious Quran.

00:06:51--> 00:06:55

These two are the sacred scriptures, books and Islam
