MAIL - 13 - Part - 1

I Wrote -

As you said, as the understanding of scriptures increases you might be convinced.

In my understanding, before approaching any scriptures one need to know the basic foundation. That is for each and every point, one cannot understand it logically. Only thing one should ensure is that whether it is from God or not. If it is from God then it is acceptable otherwise it is not acceptable.

The limitation with trying to understand everything logically is that humans are given only a very tiny part of God's knowledge. God ask us to believe in His angels. Nobody can prove the existence of Angels by any kind of logic. If customer, in FRS asked to implement a given functionality with the specified logic and the developer decided that his logic is better (or he did not understand the logic of customer) and implemented in his own logic. After that when customer checked, he found that the developer did not use the specified logic. Here two things will happen
1. Customer will question the developer why he did not use the specified logic. This is because customer has the full understanding of the system and the customer has some other intention behind using his logic.
2. Since the developer did not possess the full knowledge like customer, he will came to know his mistake only when he meets the customer!.

The point is, Humans Have Serious Limitations. Al Mighty God does not have any Limitations.

So as a  believer in God, one should check whether it is from God or not. If it is convinced that it is from God then there is no hesitation because only God has the full and perfect logic and knowledge. Please try to understand this basic knowledge before trying to learn from scriptures.

Now I will explain my understanding regarding the scriptures.

I understand that all the scriptures such as The Vedas,  The Torah, The Psalms, The Bible and the Quran came from the same source. That is from One God. He sent these scriptures by His chosen prophets. All the scriptures were send in the language of the people to which it was sent.

The Message of Scriptures

The prime and the foremost command that every scripture and their prophets upheld was - Worship The One God Without any Forms such as Idols, Graves or Images. I understand that this mankind received The Vedas by the means of Rishis or Prophets who had been sent to Indian subcontinent. When one goes through the verses of Vedas, there are plenty of commands to Worship The One God without any forms. If you look at the meaning of 'Ohm', it does calls the humanity to Worship The One God Without any forms.

"Mayest Thou (AUM) O God, Who art (Mitra), Friend of all, (Varuna) Holiest of all, and (Aryama) Controller of the Universe, be merciful unto us. Mayest thou (Indra) O Lord Almighty, (Brihaspati) the Lord of the Universe, the Support of all, endow us with knowledge and power. Mayest thou (Vishnu) O Omnipresent and (Urukrama) Omnipotent Being, shower Thy blessings all around us." Rig Veda

There is no mentioning of any forms of God. It only glorifies the One God by mentioning His beautiful names.

He is Allah, beside Whom, there is no god but Him, the All-Knower of the unseen and the seen. He is the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. He is Allah, beside Whom, there is no god but Him, Al-Malik (The Owner and King of All things), Al-Quddus (The Pure), As-Salam (Free from any defects of shortcomings), Al-Mu`min (Who has granted safety to His servants by promising that He will never be unjust to them) , Al-Muhaymin (The Witness for His servants actions), Al-`Aziz (He is the Almighty, Dominant over All things), Al-Jabbar, Al-Mutakabbir (The Only One worthy of being the Compeller and Supreme). Glory be to Allah! Above all that they associate as partners with Him. He is Allah, Al-Khaliq, Al-Bari, Al-Musawwir. All that is in the heavens and the earth glorify Him. And He is the Almighty, the All-Wise. Quran 59:22-24

For this is what the high and lofty One says--he who lives forever, whose name is holy: I live in a high and holy place, but also with him who is contrite and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the lowly and to revive the heart of the contrite. Isaiah 57:15

Look at the beautiful names of God mentioned in the above verses. There is no mentioning of any forms or any names of humans who came by the means of the wombs of any woman.

The Glorious Quran

1. Quran was the last sent scripture by prophet Mohammad. First of all, Quran does recognizes all the previous scriptures.

And this Qur'an is not such as could ever be produced by other than Allah (One God) but it is a confirmation of (the revelation) which was before it, and a full explanation of the Book -- wherein there is no doubt -- from the Lord of all that exists. Quran 10:37

One of the foremost aspect of the Quran is that it does not disprove the previous scriptures. It recognizes all the previous scriptures as the true revelations from The Same Source. A believer is not a believer unless and until he/she is ready to believe all the previous scriptures.

And who have faith in what is revealed to you and in what was revealed before you, and in the Hereafter they are certain. Quran 2:4

2. Now, Quran testifies that all the messengers of God were sent with The One and Only Message.

And We did not send any Messenger before you but We revealed to him (saying): "There is no God but I, so worship Me. '' Quran 21:25

Here Quran upholds the prime and most important commands of all the prophets of God and their scriptures.

3. Being the last revealed scripture, it does give a picture of the events that occurred in the past.

Verily, We have sent you with the truth, a bearer of glad tidings and a warner.  And there never was a nation but a warner had passed among them. Quran 35:24

So, to every community who lived under the sky, were sent prophets of  God, to proclaim the Oneness of God by worshiping Him and Only Him.

4. Quran also says that each messenger were sent in the language of their own people.

"And We sent not a Messenger except with the language of his people, in order that he might make (the Message) clear for them ..." Quran 14:4

So Quran clearly maintains and recognizes all the previous Scriptures and their Prophets.

5. A believer is supposed to proclaim this belief of One God. A believer is supposed to proclaim this belief of All Scriptures of God. A believer is supposed to proclaim this belief of all Messengers of God.

The Messenger believes in what has been sent down to him from his Lord, and (so do) the believers. Each one believes in Allah (One God), His Angels, His Books, and His Messengers. (They say,) "We make no distinction between one another of His Messengers and they say, "We hear, and we obey. (We seek) Your forgiveness, our Lord, and to You is the return (of all).'' Quran 2:285

This is The Universal Message that Quran put forwards and that is what is The Base Understanding.

- There is no delineation of their god, your god. There is only One God, Our God.
- There is no delineation of their scripture, your scripture. There is only Scriptures sent by One God.
- There is no delineation of their their prophet, your prophet. There is only Messengers sent by One God.
