    There are no one book you have. You have many books some run to this book other to that. So there is no morality within you . Revert to Islam and there is only one book follow it and be near to Allah

    The reason we have so many books is because the knowledge contained within Sanātana Dharma is impossible to put into one book. I don't know of a book that has the spine width of 50-75-100 feet, if not more. How would anyone carry it? Let's use some common sense here. Why would you put texts on astronomy, metallurgy, mathematics, navigation, stone-working, textiles, engineering, agriculture all in one book? That is what this represents. Now, there are many books that cover the multi-faceted aspects of Brahman, or God. Again, it is not possible to condense the knowledge to a single book without missing a lot of detail that is necessary for clarity and understanding. Where ARE those books of yours? Did you not have time or the resources to develop such civilizational knowledge in the nomadic lifestyle within the hostile desert? Who would want to spend the resources, energy, and time trying to develop the knowledge when you are too busy trying to survive in a hostile environment. Your survival is too important. When you learn enough to come out of the desert into a more supportive natural environment, then your civilization can start to learn the things that Hindus learned as linguists, engineers, metallurgists, ship navigators, temple builders, weavers, teachers THOUSANDS of years ago.

    Your whole message showed the hatred towards Islam. First of first the scripture should be small concise and easily understandable not a pothi of books that have to mugged up. Queen is real scripture small concise and easily understandable. Second thing words of God can't be lengthy. He put them in small wordings. Not for humming.

    Hindus, for the most part, have never hated Islam. Those that have developed hatred have been persecuted by your religion for many many years, and have just had enough.

    As for scripture, life is vast, it includes so much stuff. it's not simple. You think one architectural book can cover the entire field of architecture?

    Brother architecture books are for architect he cab easily understood that.
    But a religious book that is said to be words of God is for whole man kind. So it should be easily understood concise and small.

    Then you don't understand what we have tried to tell you. There is a whole set of knowledge that you are not aware of. Simply not aware.

    An analogy is when you take a simpler idea that works like the idea you're trying to explain. Analogies have been used in explanation by teachers for centuries. If we got a moderate Islamic scholar on here, he could most likely give you a few examples of analogies from the Koran.

    Instead of doing that, because Hinduism does not belong in the Abrahamic family of religions, consider reading an article about whether Dharma is the same as religion:

    http://rajivmalhotra.com/library/articles/dharma-religion/
    Dharma is not the same as Religion


    The word “dharma” has multiple meanings depending on the context in which it is used. These include: conduct, duty, right, justice, virtue, morality, religion, religious merit, good work according to a right or rule, etc. Many others meanings have been suggested, such as law or “torah” (in the Judaic sense), “logos” (Greek), “way” (Christian) and even ‘tao” (Chinese). None of these is entirely accurate and none conveys the full force of the term in Sanskrit. Dharma has no equivalent in the Western lexicon.

    Dharma has the Sanskrit root dhri, which means “that which upholds” or “that without which nothing can stand” or “that which maintains the stability and harmony of the universe.” Dharma encompasses the natural, innate behavior of things, duty, law, ethics, virtue, etc. Every entity in the cosmos has its particular dharma — from the electron, which has the dharma to move in a certain manner, to the clouds, galaxies, plants, insects, and of course, man. Man’s understanding of the dharma of inanimate things is what we now call physics.

    British colonialists endeavored to map Indian traditions onto their ideas of religion so as to be able to comprehend and govern their subjects; yet the notion of dharma remained elusive. The common translation into religion is misleading since, to most Westerners, a genuine religion must:

    1) be based on a single canon of scripture given by God in a precisely defined historical event;
    2) involve worship of the divine who is distinct from ourselves and the cosmos;
    3) be governed by some human authority such as the church;
    4) consist of formal members;
    5) be presided over by an ordained clergyman; and
    6) use a standard set of rituals.

    But dharma is not limited to a particular creed or specific form of worship. To the Westerner, an “atheistic religion” would be a contradiction in terms, but in Buddhism, Jainism and Carvaka dharma, there is no place for God as conventionally defined. In some Hindu systems the exact status of God is debatable. Nor is there only a single standard deity, and one may worship one’s own ishta-devata, or chosen deity.

    Dharma provides the principles for the harmonious fulfillment of all aspects of life, namely, the acquisition of wealth and power (artha), fulfillment of desires (kama), and liberation (moksha). Religion, then, is only one subset of dharma’s scope.

    Any religious book would make the reader feel uplifted, it would add something spiritual to his/her life. I don't think there are books of God. That idea doesn't make sense to me.

    Though whole vedas revealed by God himself but the most concise and most direct words of God is Shrimad Bhagvad Gita.
