[June 10, 2017] Shri Anil asked: Padanamaskaram Swami, A question from a Muslim devotee is enclosed

1) A muslim devotee, Imran Ahmed, on Qoura commented on the divine knowledge of Shri Datta Swami on re-birth as given below.[Kindly give Your answer to this. Imran Ahmed. Jai Shri Datta

Your articles are very insightful and whenever I read them, I feel that it contains only truth. Thanks for your beautiful messages. In this article you have mentioned that : “Some people think that cancellation of the rebirth in this world is salvation! This is climax of ignorance.” During my spiritual journey so far, I had a conclusion that the key effort in spiritual path is to attain Moksha/Liberation...

Swami Replied: Salvation means relief from the worldly tensions for which the worldly bonds are always responsible. One should not try for salvation or detachment without attachment to God. A bond breaks only by another stronger bond. A stronger bond with God can only break the worldly bonds. Hence, salvation from the worldly bonds (worldly tensions) should be a natural consequence of the stronger bond with God. The aim shall be attachment to God and not detachment...

Decision of Rebirth in Hands of God And Soul Should Better Think No Chance of Rebirth

[27 November 2016] 1) Isn't this statement by Prophet Mohammed proof that Islam like Dharmic Tradition believes in the concept of rebirth?

The Prophet said: …I would love to be martyred in Allah's Cause and then get resurrected and then get martyred, and then get resurrected again and then get martyred and then get resurrected again and then get martyred… [Bukhari 4.54]

Swami replied: Hinduism believes in rebirth of the soul. Christianity and Islam do not believe in rebirth. Thus, both these are extreme contradicting concepts without the Aristotle’s middle golden path. This means that there are three possibilities: 1) Every soul has rebirth, 2) Every soul has no rebirth, 3) Some souls have rebirth and some souls do no have rebirth....

Basic Aim Of Bible & Quran Is Not Nivrutti

[Allah do not have son

Reply of Swamiji to Questions asked by Devotees - Part 2

[June 16, 2015] 8. A muslim devotee (Late Hadhrat Mirza Tahir Ahmad ) want to bring unity of all religions by interpreting following verses of Jesus, Mohammad and Krishna.
1) Jesus's verse- I am the Alpha, I am the Omega
2) Mohammad verse: Holy Prophet Muhammad (saw) is the source and means of people reaching God and in Hadith Holy Prophet claims himself to be the very first, the Alpha
3) Krishna said 'I am the Beginning and the End'.
He interprets that above verses indicate that they are all messengers of God only, not God Themselves.

Swami replied: I have already clarified the concept of human incarnation in the above part. God enters a deserving devotee and gets Himself identified with the devotee so that such devotee is to be treated as God for all the practical purposes. There is no other alternative way than this (Nanyah panthaah… Veda) because the original God is unimaginable since He is beyond space being its generator. You require a visible medium to see and talk with God directly to clarify your doubts. This provision is accomplished through human incarnation. You should not think that the original God is all pervading cosmic energy. Assuming it as correct (God does not pervade the entire universe), such God is ...

Worship Of Wall Not Different From That Of Statues

[January 31, 2015] Shri Anil asked: "One Muslim devotee says that the worship of Allah is far superior to the worship of statues. Please enlighten".

Swami Replied: The P.G. [post graduate] Course is far superior to L.K.G. [lower kindergarten] course. This does not mean that you should blame the L.K.G. course and praise the P.G. Course. One day you were also a student of that L.K.G. course. The only point here is that you should not stop at the level of first step (L.K.G.)...

Scripture Alone Is Path For Mankind Belonging To That Religion Only

[August 13, 2014] Prophet Mohammad tried to bring the unity among religions in His region even facing terrible wars and hence, He should be praised as the Pillar of the Universal Religion of the world. Similarly, Shankara tried to bring the unity of the religions in India and faced cruel fights like black magic and should be considered as another pillar of Universal Religion of the world. The concept of the Universal Religion is very important...

More Elaborate Scripture Means More Questions From Devotees

[August 12, 2014] Mr. Tanweer Ahmad responded to a message given by Swami on 11th August, 2014 regarding the topic that Mohammad is the last Prophet. His main points are: 1) the word 'last' (Khatam) means perfect and Mohammad was perfect and hence, this does not mean that after Mohammad no Prophet comes. 2) Since Mohammad is perfect, even if the Prophets come in future, they are like His shadow-reflections only and not as another light.

Swami replied: I appreciate the sincerity and devotion to Mohammad in the case of Tanweer Ahmad. Since he has given the clarifications of the word 'last' in excellent way, I consider him also as a Prophet after Mohammad. His explanation itself is a scripture. But, doubts always come on every scripture and further clarifications from God...

Every Prophet Clarifies Doubts Of Contemporary Devotees

[August 11, 2014 2nd Message] Shri Anil asked "Some devotees of Islam say that Mohammad is the last Prophet. They say that the final message of God is given through Him and therefore, there is no need of any more Prophet in the future".

Swami replied: A human being may give message today and may correct it again and again so that on one final day the final form of the message is prepared. Do you mean that God also gave messages through the earlier Prophets through the process of continuous corrections ...

Protection Of God Does Not Come By Praying Or Crying

[August 9, 2014 2nd Message] Shri Anil asked "In Gaza, Israel bombed Palestines, who cried for Allah to protect them. Since the protection was not there, a misunderstanding that God is not protecting them may arise".

Swami replied: There are two points. The first point is why God is not protecting the crying people. The second point is the basis of bombing against one religion by the other religion. The first point is understood by the proper understanding of psychology of God or the correct philosophy. Devotion to God (Nivrutti) is one side of the spiritual knowledge...

Practical Spirituality in Islam

Islam is the greatest religion in this world and I am not making this statement without reason. The reason is that Islam is the only religion, which deals with practical spiritual efforts without any trace of theoretical gossip. This religion shows excellent tolerance towards other religions. Islam says that you should even protect the non-believers of Islam if they pray for protection from you. After protecting them, you can give them the message of Allah and send them to a protected place. After being protected, the protected person will show great interest in hearing the message. This is the message of Islam and all other religions should appreciate this. This proves the broad-mindedness of this greatest religion. Islam says "Allahussamad", which means that everything and everybody depends on Allah and...

Mohammad Declared Himself as Prophet

Mohammad was also human incarnation of God like Jesus, Buddha and Krishna. The unimaginable God possess a human being, who is a deserving devotee, selected by God to become a member of His inner most circle. Just like the current enters a metallic wire, the unimaginable God enters an imaginable item of creation, which is always a human being. Here, the current is not transformed into the wire. Current did not become the wire. Current only entered the wire. The wire is the medium of current. Similarly, God is not transformed into human being or God did not become the human being (Avyaktam vyaktimaapannam -- Gita). God only entered the human being, which is a medium only as said in the Veda (Tadevanupravishat...) and the Gita (Manusheemtanumaashritam...).

The Reason why Mohammad declared Himself as Last Prophet

Devotee: In Quran, it is stated that Mohammed is not father of any one.
Further it is stated there that He is the last Prophet sent by God.
What is the inner meaning of this, if this verse is genuine statement?

Swami: Oh! You have picked up very crucial concept of spirituality.
This statement is original and therefore it entered your mind.
The inner meaning of this verse is based on the angle, which you take
For the word Mohammed, here the word Mohammed stands only
for the external human form and not the internal eternal God.
Islam does not agree to the concept of human incarnation.

When Bible says the word Jesus, it means the internal eternal God.
When the Gita says Krishna, He means the same eternal God.
Because both Christianity and Hinduism believe God in flesh.
We need not criticise Islam for not believing Human Incarnation,
Because the main idea is that there is always misuse of this concept.
The human beings claim themselves as human incarnations.
Every human being following the philosophy of Advaita in Hinduism
feels that it is the Lord, this is very dangerous extrapolation.
Even devils and demons claimed themselves as eternal God
By doing certain miracles after achieving some superpowers.
