Hinduism and Islam: Differences and Similarities
To be a Hindu is to be born a Hindu, and then to follow a certain way of life. The word "Hindu" comes from "Hind", the old Persian word for India, and Hinduism simply means the religion of the people of India. With no founder and no creed, it has evolved over time. Hinduism has many gods, yet, for some Hindus, there is an impersonal "Absolute" behind them all, called Brahman, creator of the universe. Brahman "unfolds" into the Trimurti, the holy trinity made up of Brahma, Vishnu, and Shiva. Brahma is the creator, Vishnu the great preserver, and Shiva the destroyer but also the re-creator.
Islam is a religion of submission. Its followers, Muslims, are "those who commit themselves in surrender to the will of Allah" (Allah is the Arabic word for God). The word "Islam" itself means "commitment" or "surrender". Muslims see their faith as God's final revelation, which meets all the spiritual and religious needs of humanity.
