You wrote: “On what basis you are confining “Creed of Ibrahim” to geographical limit of Mecca only?”
Where did I say, the Creed of Ibrahim is confined to Mecca?
You wrote: “Why only the practices of people of Mecca or Arabia can only be called as “creed of Ibrahim”?”
Again, where did I make such a claim?
You wrote: “Who told you that progeny of Prophet Ibrahim never left the Arabian region and never settled in other region of world along with their customs/rituals/practices?”
Once more, did I write anything like the above in my posts to you?
I only asked you this: How many of the 7 items on your list could be termed “Practice(s) based on the Creed of Ibrahim?” Did you deflect the question or am I deflecting the question? Which of the seven items as mentioned by you are based on the Creed of Ibrahim along with the source which states so?
You wrote: So if any Hindu claims that their practices/rituals are also part of “creed of Ibrahim’ and are being followed through unbroken chain of continuity from last 4000 or so years, what will be your basis of denying their claim? ….
Every claim is to be judged on its merit. Which of the items on your list of 7 are claimed by Hindus to be based on the Creed of Ibrahim?
You wrote: “Dawood Bhai, “Creed of Ibrahim” is nothing but Pure Monotheism as elaborated in Quran which I understood from reading it. You are mixing “creed of Ibrahim” with extraneous sources not found in Quran just to defend your stand and ego.”
I respect your erroneous understanding. The word used for “Creed of Ibrahim” is “Millat-e-Ibrahim.” As per lexicons (lughat, lane, etc.) this word covers two distinct aspects: (i) Belief and (ii) practices in line with that belief. Monotheism is a belief system, falls under (i) just mentioned. What you are advocating is just (i) and neglecting the other half, (ii) above. Is this following the Quran?
I am gone rest of the week.
