Bharathiyar song on islam

அல்லா,அல்லா,அல்லா!
சரணங்கள்
பல்லாயிரம் பல்லாயிரம் கோடி கோடி யண்டங்கள்
எல்லாத் திசையிலுமோ ரெல்லை யில்லா வெளி வானிலே!
நில்லாது சுழன்றோட நியமஞ் செய்தருள் நாயகன்
சொல்லா லும்மனத்தாலுந்தொடரொணாதபெருஞ் சோதி! (அல்லா,அல்லா,அல்லா!)
கல்லாதவ ராயினும் உண்மை சொல்லாதவ ராயினும்
பொல்லாத ராயினும் தவ மில்லாதவ ராயினும்
நல்லாருரை நீதி யின்படி நில்லாதவ ராயினும்
எல்லாரும் வந்தேத்து மளவில் யமபயங் கெடச்செய்பவன் (அல்லா,அல்லா,அல்லா!)

Brief on Islam

The Pillars of Islam are five basic acts in Islam, considered obligatory for all Muslims. They are (1) the shahadah (creed), (2) daily prayers (salat), (3) almsgiving (zakah), (4) fasting during Ramadan and (5) the pilgrimage to Mecca (hajj) at least once in a lifetime. The Shahada or declaring belief in the oneness of God (tawhid) and the acceptance of Muhammad as God's prophet. There is no god but God. Muhammad is the messenger of God.
Muhammad was born in the year 570 in the town of Mecca, a town in the desert of western Arabia. His name derives from the Arabic verb hamada, meaning "to praise, to glorify." At the age of 25, Muhammad married Khadijah bint Khuwaylid who was nearly forty. The marriage lasted for 25 years and was a happy one.
610CE Muhammad Receives First Revelation. Muhammad returned to live in Medina. In March, 632, he returned to Mecca one last time to perform a pilgrimage, and tens of thousands of Muslims joined him. After the pilgrimage, he returned to Medina. Three months later on June 8, 632 he died there, after a brief illness. He is buried in the mosque in Medina. Within a hundred years Muhammad's teaching and way of life had spread from the remote corners of Arabia as far east as Indo-China and as far west as Morocco, France and Spain.
Early Arabs were pagan, and basically animistic. Through Moon, Sun, Stars, Planets, Animals, wells, trees, stones, caves, springs, and other natural objects man could make contact with the deity. Pagan Arabs used to worship 360 deities and Moon-worship was popular, Apollo and Diana—the twin brother and sister, representing the sun and moon. …In Islam, moon is considered holiest astronomical object, and moon is the guiding light of all Islamic rituals/festivals.
Islam followers are known as Muslims (Moslems). Islam means "submission to God. Moses and Jesus are considered to be Muslim prophets.
Muslims follows various prohibitions: no alcohol, no gambling, no eating of pork, and they are not permitted to charge interest for loans.
July 16, 622 AD is the first day of the Muslim calendar. This is the day that Muhammad moved from Mecca to Medina.

Islam in Hindu India

Arab contact with India started in pre-Islamic times, and from the seventh century onwards Arab traders settled in large numbers on the west coast of India and married Indian women. Tradition has it that one of the Malabar kings converted to Islam in the early ninth century and made a pilgrimage to Makkah where he died. The first Indian mosque, Cheraman Juma Masjid, is thought to have been built in 629 AD by Malik Bin Deenar.
Islamic influence on Hindu reformers and philosophers became more direct and obvious in the increasing emphasis on monotheism, emotional worship, self-surrender, and adoration of the teacher as the spiritual preceptor and guide
Muslim Sufis, writers and poets show a strong tendency to assimilate Hindu thought and practices. Ramananda Tulsidas, who wrote the Ramayana, and Kabir, who is revered equally by Hindus and Muslims.
Guru Nanak, a founder of Sikhism, viewed Muhammad as an agent of the Hindu Brahman.
Qwawalii (present day Qawwali) form of north Indian music much like the hindu bhajan. Sufi Khwaja Hasan Nizami wrote that Ram and Krishna were the prophets of Allah. Hasrat Mohani, was a great admirer of Lord Krishna. The Sufis adopted the local rituals and customs and their Islam was highly Indianised. Certain Muslim communities like Khoja or Bohra community exhibit deep rooted Indian customs and culture. Cults like Saibaba and Salim Chisti where Muslims worship a personified saint along with the Hindus.
Saint Hazareth Saiyed Shahul Hameed Qadir Oli Ganjasavoy Andavar Avergal of NAGORE is respected by people of all religions around Tanjore or south India. Erumeli is famous for its Sastha Temple and Vavar Mosque. Pilgrims who visit the temple also worship at Vavar Mosque as Vavar was considered to be a contemporary and friend of Aiyappan.

Paranjothi Mahan

Islamic seer Paranjothi Mahan (1900-1981), whose samadhi is in Madurai a place called "Kansapuram" in Southern India. Mahan has lived a life with several Yogic practices, Manthras, Japas, Thapas and several other activities to achieve his goal of seeing the God, who's greater than the Kings, and lived a life of Sanctity. Mahan received spiritual initiation from an old man. He has preached and initiated people of the world with the sacred technique of "Kundalini Yoga" and became Donor of Knowledge. Mahan has established "World Peace Temple" at chennai.
For the sake of reputation, do not enslave reason, For the fear of pain, do not give up truth. A critical enquiry of half a minute is far superior to the worship of a thousand years. The duty of an ascetic life is to clear the sufferings of people. awareness is state os awake. Sufferings are the ancestors of wisdom. Tolerance is the progency of wisdom. Pondering research and experiences are the allies of wisdom. Just as midnights and middays are momentary, crisis and miseries are but temporary. Those who are patient in all difficulties will gain strengh and power. Wise, Agnostists and Liberated souls are those who have come out of delusion. Those who are refined in Thought, Word and Deed are Gods on Earth. "I" alone is thought. There is no saintly life without family life, There is no family life without saintly life.

Mahananda Baba’

(Muhammad Abdul Kadhar, 1891-1959), wrote many Advaitic classics:
Being conscious Brahman pervades all
In forgetfulness Maya pervades all
In all that which becomes the all
is what I call the Union
verse which also reminds one the wisdom of Mullah Nasrudheen:
Searching all over the street
that which I have kept in the house,
Similarly I searched in the scriptures
and declared there is nothing.

Arab traders transmitted the numeral system developed by Indians to the Middle East and Europe. Many Sanskrit books were translated into Arabic as early as the eighth century.
