Ahmed Pandit or Acharya sanjay prasad duwedy

Ahmed Pandit, previously known as Acharya Sanjay Prasad Duwedy, made a significant impact on me during my school days. I vividly recall listening to his lecture on the similarities between the Vedas and the Quran, which greatly influenced me. Despite being school students, many of my friends found his findings fascinating, and I remember distributing clips of his lectures to them.

Islam often faces misconceptions and misinterpretations, with people forming judgments based on selective news coverage. However, the true essence of Islam is different, as evidenced by its rapid growth despite these challenges. Those who study Islam through the Quran often find it truly remarkable.

It’s important to recognize that Islam, like any religion, is multifaceted and cannot be accurately portrayed through cherry-picked information. By delving deeper into its teachings, one can gain a more nuanced understanding and appreciation for its values and principles.

The Boy whose words Influenced him to study about Islam

Ahmed Pandit’s journey to Islam was sparked by the devout faith of a fellow Muslim student named Imran during their time at a strict school where tardiness resulted in physical punishment. Despite facing regular beatings for being late to class due to his commitment to prayer, Imran remained steadfast in his religious observance.

Moved by Imran’s unwavering dedication to his faith, Ahmed Pandit questioned him about the reason for his habitual lateness. Imran explained that he prioritized his prayers at their designated times because failing to do so would result in punishment in the afterlife, which outweighed any worldly consequences.

This conversation deeply impacted Ahmed Pandit, planting a seed of curiosity about Islam. He later visited Imran’s home, where he witnessed firsthand the sincerity and devotion of Imran’s family, including his father, who despite holding a prestigious position as the chief justice of Bhopal, lived modestly and devotedly practiced Islam, even hosting Quranic study sessions for colleagues and professionals in their humble one-bedroom apartment.

Through these experiences, Ahmed Pandit was drawn to Islam and eventually embraced it, inspired by the genuine piety and integrity he observed in Imran and his family.

Ahmed pandit saw Imran’s father reading Salah and asked if what was the Yoga he was doing to which he replied that,it was not yoga but Prayer.

Ahmed Pandit was shocked again as it was the first time he was seeing a different form of prayer .The prayer where there was no God to be seen.He said to Imran’s father,” Don’t make fun of me uncle, if you were praying to God, where is the God, there is nothing in front of you, it is just the wall. We used to pray in front of God, who is colorful and well decorated”

At this point Imran’s father said nothing he asked Ahmed Pandit, “do you know Hindi well?”, Ahmed Pandit replied that he was proficient in Hindi and Sanskrit. Imran’s father gave him a copy of Quran with Hindi translation and told him to go through it.
After the exams were over, Ahmed Pandit returned to his “Gurukul” and he said there was a private area which was only reserved for the student . No one could enter there without permission. There he took his time and went through Quran.

He said that after exams,he used to sit and study Quran in a private student zone of Gokul.He took his time and went through Quran.

He said that while going through Quran many bell rang within him.
He came across many words which were exactly matching the Vedas he learned, specially the word “Muhammad, Ahmed”. (He said that while teaching the Vedas his teachers said that Ahmed in the Veda refer to Krishna , a clear lie…)

He said the words of Imran “The punishment of this world is nothing in front of the punishment of the next world”He kept on repeating that in his mind and finally he decided to escape from Gurukul and become a Muslim, which he ultimately did.

After leaving Gurukul,he began his study of Islam He did an year research on Islam and joined an year course on Islam offered by jamea Darul Salam,tamil nadu.Islam influenced him so much that later he decided to become an Alim so he joined the 6 year Alim course-dawah tabligh and became an Alim.

His lectures are available in You tube where he points out the similarities between Islam and Hinduism and how Vedas talks about One God,about Muhammad and about Islam as the final religion .

You can listen one of his lectures here.May Allah open the hearts of People towards Islam and save all of us from the punishment of disbelief.
