A Hindu can be a ‘good believer’ by believing in one God, but he then has to remove the caste system from his mind and society, then remove ....... until there is the only a system that benefits mankind, found only in the Quran.
Unless you have a complete and uncorrupted Book of Allah to judge by, looking at the Vedas will leave you frustrated and at a loss as to what is right and what is wrong.
A ‘good believer’ requires a proper system to work with, not just belief.
2:177 (One consequence of this schism is their pre-occupation with rituals, with each sect leaving the Revelation aside and taking delight in its own set of dogmas they call religion. 30:320.)
Righteousness and exponential development of the ‘self’ depends not on whether you turn your faces to East or West. But righteousness is that:
One has conviction in God,
And the Last Day,
And the Angels,
And the Book,
And the prophets.
[BELEIF DOES NOT STOP HERE, BUT THE VERSES CONTINUE WITH THE PRACTICAL IMPLEMENTATION OF THIS BELIEF]
And that he gives his cherished wealth to:
Family and relatives,
Those left helpless in the society,
And those whose hard-earned income fails to meet their basic needs,
Those whose running businesses have stalled,
The ones who have lost their jobs,
Whose life has stalled for any reason,
The needy wayfarer, son of the street, the homeless, the one who travels to you for assistance,
Those who ask for help, and
Those whose necks are burdened with any kind of bondage, oppression, crushing debts and extreme hardship of labor.
(And righteous are) those who strive to establish the institution of Salaat, (2:3. 2:53)
And help set up the Economic System of Zakaat.
They are true to their pledge whenever they make one.
And they remain steadfast in physical or emotional distress and in times of peril.
It is they who have proven themselves to be true, and it is they who are living upright.
[2:4, 3:91-92 Yateem, Miskeen, Ibn-is-Sabeel, Fir-Riqaab, carry all the meanings rendered above. Please also note that the Qur’an has named above the well-known five “Articles of Faith.” But belief in Taqdeer = Predetermined destiny, has been interjected in the fabricated Ajami accounts as the sixth article of Faith by ‘Imams’, making Muslims fatalistic in their thought and behavior. The Qur’an nowhere mentions Taqdeer or the predestined fates of individuals. Qadar or Taqdeer always denote the Law, the due measure of all things appointed by God. And man determines his own destiny by following or defying those Laws]
