Srutis consists of the Vedas and the Upanishads. 2) Smrti means memorized. mythology. Smrtis consisting of the Puranas and Itihas. The Smrti are not considered to be of divine origin but are human composition.

Upanishads:- means “sitting down”. Like groups of pupils sitting near the teacher. They are the concluding portion of the Vedas.

Advice given by Krishna to Arjun on the battlefield of Kurukshetra.
DAWAH TO HINDUS CONCEPT OF GOD IN HINDUISM
Common Hindu may say 3, 33, 33 crore i.e. 330 millions. But if you ask a Hindu learned man he will tell you that the Hindus should believe and worship only 1 God. Chandogya Upanishad, Chapter 6, Khanda 2, Shloka 1, “Ekam evaditiyam”, “He is the one only”. The BrahmaSutra of Hindu Vedanta is:-“Ekam Brahm, dvitiya naste nen na naste kinchan” “Bhagwan ek hi hai dusara nahi hai, nahi hain,zara bhi nahi hai.” “There is only 1 God, not the second, not at all, not in least bit” These verses essentially promote monotheism.
IS IDOL WORSHIP ALLOWED ??? “Natasya pratima asti” there is no image of Him” (Yajurved 32:3) "...Of that God you cannot make any images." (Yajurved 3:32) “Shudham poapvidham” “He is bodiless & pure”(Yajurveda 40:8) (Yajurved 40:9) “Andhatma pravishanti ye asambhuti mupaste” “They enter darkness, those who worship natural things” For e.g. air, water, fire etc. It further continues and says …“They sink deeper in darkness those who worship sambhuti i.e. created things” e.g. such as statues, pictures, idols, etc. If you analyze Hindu Scriptures you will understand the correct concept of God in Hinduism.
WHAT IS HIS NAME ??? “Qulidullahawidurahman ayyammatadu falahulasmaulhusna”(17:110) Say: Call him Allah/Rahman. by whichever name you like. To him belong the Most Beautiful Names. You can call Allah by any name but that name should be beautiful and should not conjure up a mental picture.
WHAT IS HIS NAME ??? Islam does not object to anyone calling Almighty God as ‘Khaliq’ or ‘Creator’ or ‘Brahma’, but if someone says that ‘Brahma’ i.e. Almighty God has got 4 heads 4 hands, Islam takes strong exception to it because such descriptions give an image to Almighty God. Such descriptions are also against, “Na tasya pratima asti” (Yajurveda 32:3) ‘Rabb’ or ‘Sustainer’ or ‘Vishnu’, but if someone says Vishnu has 4 arms, right arms holds the ‘chakra’ i.e. a discus and left arms holds a ‘conch shell’ and rides on a bird, then Islam takes strong exception to this, because such descriptions give an image to Almighty God. (Yajurveda 40:8) “shudhama poapvidham”
NAME ALLAH IS PREFERRED TO “GOD” Muslims prefer calling Allah, instead of the word ‘God’ which can be played around with. If you add ‘s’ to God, it becomes ‘Gods’ that is plural of God. Allah is one and singular, there is no plural of Allah. If you add ‘dess’ becomes ‘goddess’ i.e. a female God. There is nothing like male Allah or female Allah. Allah has no gender. If you add father to God, it becomes ‘godfather’ “godmother” there is nothing like Allah Ammi or Allah Mother in Islam. Allah is a unique word, which does not conjure up any mental picture nor can it be played around with. Allah is mentioned by Name in Hindu Scriptures in Rigveda Book 2 hymn 1 verse 11, Book 3 hymn 30 verse 10, Book 9 hymn 67 verse 30 There is an Upanishad by the name ALO Upanishad.
DAWAH TO HINDUS CASTE SYSTEM IN HINDUISM
Rig Ved (Book 10, Chap 90) “Purusha (Primal Man) divine being/cosmic giant split up/exploded to create Gods/Universe. There are 4 main castes into which people are categorized:- 1) Brahmins (At the top):- the priests, scholars, and philosophers. Evolved from the Head/face of Purusha. 2) Kshatriyas:- warriors, rulers/kings. Come from the arms. 3) Vaishyas:- traders, merchants. from the lap/thighs. 4) Shudras (Untouchables-lowest caste):- laborers/servants performing unskilled jobs, dealing with dead bodies/cleaning toilets etc. for the other castes. from the feet of the Purusha.
Discrimination/Differentiation:- Higher-caste people went through cleansing rituals. Could not draw water from a public well. Could not enter temples. Cannot eat in the same room as other caste members. In 1930, British government made laws to protect the "Scheduled castes" – untouchables. People like Dr. Ambedkar & Mahatma Gandhi advocated liberation for the Dalits, coining the term Harijan or "Children of God" to describe them.
CASTE SYSTEM IN HINDUISM Caste, determined by birth, cannot be changed. It dictated your occupation. Dictated choice of spouse (No inter-marriages) Doing something outside your caste, could result in excommunication from your caste. Exploitation
DAWAH TO HINDUS CONCEPT OF PUNARJANAM
Punarjanam or Life after death is mentioned in the Vedas (Rigved 10: 16: 5) Hindus believe Punarjanam as the cycle of birth, death and rebirth Punarjanam:- In Sanskrit Punar means ‘next’ and Janam means ‘life’. Therefore Punarjanam means next life or life again. And in the Qur’an as well, “He gave you life, then he will cause you to die, And will again bring you to life”. (Surah Baqarah, 2:28) It does not mean coming to life again and again.
