The Islamic civilization in the Indian subcontinent like other countries has left visible social, cultural, religious and philosophical impact in every aspect of Indian society. This influence is clear in arts, construction, carving, calligraphy, poetry, language, philosophy and literature. Many Hindus, with their Hindu faith, have contributed to Islamic culture, including poetry in Urdu and Persian, calligraphy.
The influence of Islamic culture in the field of thought and philosophy in the Hindu society was the emergence of different religious sects that tried to combine and mix between the Islamic principles and Hindu philosophies especially the Oneness of God, the abolition of caste-based discrimination, and the second marriage of the Hindu widow, and the abolition of burning wife after the death of the husband or what is called in India Sati.
This video presents a vivid picture of this reality.
In this video you will watch a Hindu writes in Arabic in a very beautiful writing: “Bismillah arRahman ar-Raheem” (In the name of Allah the most Gracious the most Merciful) and “La Ilaha IllAllah Muhammadur Rasulullah” (There is none worthy of worship except Allah and Muhammad is Allah’s Messenger).
