What does the Quran say about other religions such as Buddhism, Taoism,Hinduism, etc?

I know it mentions the Bible and the Torah, but what about the others I mentioned above?


  1. Technically their idolaters and polytheists. Meaning they believe in more than one god and worship statues. From an islamic point of view they’re kafr . Their beliefs differ greatly from ours, not like Jews and Christians (before the trinity), that’s why they’re not mentioned. But don’t get me twisted I have no hatred or judgements toward people of any faith.

  2. the religions u’ve mentioned r man made.christianity and jewdism r holy and originate from god himself.why would he wanna talk about fake religions?he has spoken allot about moses and all his previous prophets but budda and stuff weren’t sent by him so…

    First of alI I am not very sure if anything specific had been told about Buddhism and Hinduism what else Taoism in the Quran.(I have not finished studying the Quran yet)
    However, some scholars and historians believe that Siddharta Gautama might have been one the prophet in Islam (Prophet Dzul-Kifli). And about Hinduism, I remember listening to a lectures given by a former Hindu guru who converted into Islam, after realizing that Hindu scriptures mentioned about Prophet Muhamammad (pbuh) and some other prophets in Islam.
    One of the extract is :
    Verses 5-27 (Puranas, Parti Sarg Parv III :3,3)
    A malechha (belonging to a foreign country and speaking foreign language) spiritual teacher will appear with his companions. His name will be Mahammad. Raja (Bhoj) after giving his Mahadev Arab(of angelic disposition) a bath in ‘Panchgavya’ and the Ganges water (i.e purging him of all sins) offered him the present of his sincere devotion and showing him all reverence said ‘I make obesiance to thee’
    O Ye! The pride of mankind, the dweller of Arabia, Ye have collected a great force to kill the devil and you yourself have been protected from the malechha opponents (idol worship pagans)’ O Ye! The image of the most pious God, the biggest Lord, I am slave to thee, take me as one lying thy feet’
    And as an addition to that, remember it was mentioned in the Quran that a warner had been sent to all mankind before Muhammad,
    ‘(10:47) To every people (was sent) a messenger: when their messenger comes (before them), the matter will be judged between them with justice, and they will not be wronged’
    So, it is possible that all of the man teaching Taoism and Buddhism is messenger from Allah. Rest, Allah knows best.

    Salaam and Peace.
