The Oldest Religion


The Quran mentions 25 messengers by name but also tells that God sent many other prophets and messengers, to all the different nations that have existed on Earth.

"Ikhwan u knw hindu the oldest religion?"
- by "Anonymous"

One of the comment in my blog.
It seems pretty fair, the oldest religion withhold the authentic source of God. Although Islam came after Hindu, Judaism, Christianity.. There's one thing that make Islam special from other religions.

Islam is the oldest religion than any other religions. It's not invented by people, in fact our Creator, ALLAH SWT has no beginning and ending.. Guide us to the straight path since the first human Adam created.

And God said, to the Angels:

“And (remember) when your Lord said to the angels: ‘I am going to create a human (Adam) from sounding clay of altered black smooth mud. So when I have fashioned him and breathed into him (his) soul created by Me, then you fall down prostrate to him.” (Quran 38:71-72)

God told mankind that He did not create them except that they should worship Him. Everything in this world was created for Adam and his descendants, in order to aid us in our ability to worship and know God. Due to God’s infinite Wisdom, Adam and his descendants were to be the caretakers on earth, so God taught Adam what he needed to know to perform this duty. God mentions:

“He taught Adam all the names of everything.” (Quran 2:31)

God gave Adam the ability to identify and designate names to everything; He taught him language, speech and the ability to communicate. God imbued Adam with an insatiable need for and love of knowledge. After Adam had learned the names and uses for all things God said to the Angels...

“‘tell me the names of these if you are truthful.’ They answered ‘Glory be to You, we have no knowledge except what You have taught us. Verily it is You the All Knower, the All Wise.’” (Quran 2:31-32)
God turned to Adam and said:

“‘O Adam! Inform them of their names,’ and when he had informed them of their names, He said: Did I not tell you that I know the unseen in the heavens and the earth, and I know what you reveal and what you have been hiding?” (Quran 2:33)

WE ARE NOT MUSLIM if we dare to say that there's no other messengers except prophet Muhammad saw, or if we ever mention that ISLAM is a brand new religion out of nowhere.

ISLAM is the message of Tawheed, oneness of Creator.
We are following the eternal message from messengers including Musa(Moses), Abraham (Ibrahim), Isa(Jesus) before our last prophet Muhammad s.a.w.

The oldest message is The Throne Verse:

Allah - there is no deity except Him, the Ever-Living, the Sustainer of [all] existence. Neither drowsiness overtakes Him nor sleep. To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and whatever is on the earth. Who is it that can intercede with Him except by His permission? He knows what is [presently] before them and what will be after them, and they encompass not a thing of His knowledge except for what He wills. His Kursi extends over the heavens and the earth, and their preservation tires Him not. And He is the Most High, the Most Great.
(2:255)




We Muslim don't invent new religion, instead we are going back to our very first religion which is submission to ALLAH.

  1. Hindus who claimed (or proud) that Hindu as 'the oldest religion'.. should consider to listen to Dr Zakir Naik explanation about some similarity between Islam & Hinduism..

    some Hindus (or non Muslims) might asked, "why we need to listen to a Muslim speaker (Dr Zakir Naik)?"
    the answer simply because, he (Dr Zakir Naik) is the best (so far) in comparative religion who has vast knowledge in world's major religions comparison, he knows deep into the roots of i.e Hinduism, Sikhism, Christianity, even the learned followers of that religion agree with his explanation..

    so if some non Muslim didn't agree, just listen to his explanation:

  2. Semua agama di dunia menyembah Tuhan Pencipta Alam. Tapi ktia tahu, Iblis akan berusaha tanpa henti membawa kesesatan.
    Jadi penyembahan pada Tuhan yang Satu terpesong apabila dibolehkan untuk menyembah tuhan tuhan dibumi dan langit ; dibisik oleh Iblis semua tuhan2 itu sebagai sebahagian daripada Tuhan yang Esa, Tuhan yang Esa memunculkan dirinya di bumi dan langit dalam bentuk tuhan tuhan yang bebeza. Tujuan Tuhan utama hantar tuhan tuhan tersebut untuk membantu manusia.

    Ada juga bentuk kesesatan Tuhan itu mempunyai sekutu yang sama rata hebatnya. Atau dalam agama Yunani Tuhan itu boleh membenihkan wanita di dunia dan melahirkan anak-anak Tuhan untuk membantu manusia. Dan hal yang demikian apabila masyarakat Yunani membaca kitab bani Israel, menyebabkan mereka mengaitkan kepercayaan mereka dan mencipta sekutu2 di samping Allah.

    Agama Hindu dan agama Sumeria ada persamaan tapi sudah terpesong dengan penyembahan tuhan2 berhala sebagai tuhan orang tengah yang akan membantu manusia menyampaikan permintaan dengan lebih cepat. Jadi agama Hindu adalah sekitar zaman ibubapa atau datuknennek Nabi Ibrahim a.s
