In this video, a Muslim brother from the holiest city of Hindus; Banaras, talks about the concept of God in Hinduism after he embraced Islam followed by an extensive study.

In this context, he explains the main three gods of Hindus; Brahma, Vishnu and Mahesh. Most of the Hindus imagine Brahma a figure having three faces with white beard with three faces and six hands sitting on a lotus.

 What is Panchtattva in Hindu Theology?

The Hindu mass are taught by their religious leaders that Brahma has created the universe out of the five elements; Akasha (Spirit tattva), Vayu (Air tattva), Tejas (Fire tattva), Apas (Water tattva), Prithvi (Earth tattva). In Hindu theology, Brahma refers to the Creator and Vishnu is conceived as a snake over the surface of the ocean having multiple heads spreading over a person lying on the folded body of the snake with a woman making massage of his feet. In addition, Vishnu means the one who protects and saves the universe. However, Mahesh means the Destroyer. The three have been included in one word that is Om in Sanskrit.

What is Surah Al-Fatihah?

Moreover, Ahmad Pundit has compared the Gayatri Mantra with Surat Al-Fatihah, the first Surah in the Glorious Qur’an in meaning and intention. Surat Al-Fatihah includes; praises of Allah and His glorification. In addition, it teaches how to worship, how to pray, how to ask guidance and protection from the people of misguidance and those who deserved Allah’s wrath.

We pray Allah the Almighty to help brother Ahmad to spread the word of truth amongst the misguided people.
