Anil: Grandma, what is religion?

Grandma: To most people, religion means faith. People believe in things taught by their religion. However, the Sanskrit word for religion has a somewhat different meaning. The Sanskrit word for religion is DHARM. It means nature or qualities of a thing or person.

Asha: Grandma, how can religion mean the qualities of a person? If a man does bad things, can we say it is his religion?

Grandma: Children, the good qualities of a person make up his or her DHARM. We believe that man is good by nature. Doing good things is man's religion. Sometimes, a man does not understand and does bad things by giving up his true nature. This is like giving up one's religion.

Anil: This is an interesting idea. I have heard that the Sanskrit word DHARM has another meaning as well.

Grandma: Yes, the other meaning of the word DHARM is duty. Jainism says that the function (role) of living beings is to help each other. Thus helping each other is our duty (DHARM or ...more

There is no compulsion and coercion in regard to religion.The right thing has been made distinct from the wrong thing: now whoever rejects taghut286 and believes in Allah has taken a firm support that never gives way.

The noble Quran says:-(2:256) There is no compulsion and coercion in regard to religion.The right thing has been made distinct from the wrong thing: now whoever rejects taghut286 and believes in Allah has taken a firm support that never gives way.
(2:257) And Allah (Whose support he takes) hears everything and knows everything. Allah is the Helper and Protector of those who believe in Him: He brings them out of the depths of darkness287 into the light. As for the disbelievers, they have taghut288 as their patron, who drives them out of light into the depths of darkness. These are the people who are doomed to the Fire, wherein they shall live for ever.
Expalanation:-287. The 'darkness' mentioned here means the darkness of Ignorance, which throws man off the path of salvation and well-being and directs his energies and efforts to wrong directions in defiance of reality. 'Light' here means the knowledge of Truth with the help of which man comes to know his own reality and that of the ...more
