Hello, let’s play a guessing game today called, “What is my Religion?“.
I’m going to tell you five facts about my religious belief. At the end I will reveal which religion I follow but till then you can keep on guessing. If you turn out to be wrong, tough luck today but if you are right then congratulations on being a true religious philosopher.
Fact 1: I believe in one God who is known by different names like Allah, Brahma, Jehovah or Nature and worshipped through different rituals in different regions and cultures.
Fact 2: I believe God is above genders. God is neither male nor female despite having many names and existences.
Fact 3: I believe God has sent each and every human being to find, cherish and nurture the godliness embedded in him or her. Any human being who has succeeded in doing so in this life can go to heaven in the next one despite the race, color, religion or culture they were born into.
Fact 4: I believe Dionysus, Krishna, Socrates, Moses, Buddha, Mahavira, Jesus and Mohammed (PBUH) as prophets of God. The age of prophets though has ended with Mohammed (PBUH) and now we are living in the age of reformers.
Fact 5: and finally I believe God has made each and every human being as equal regardless of their gender, race, color, religion, culture or sexual orientation.
So, what did you guess? If your guess was Islam then thumbs up, as I have said, you are a true religious philosopher at heart. If you are having doubts and you are not a Muslim then I know after being exposed to the mainstream concepts these are bound to be quite shocking. If you are a fellow Muslim then I have as much confirmation about my beliefs from God as do you about yours.
