ALLAH, KHUDA AND SWASTIKA (स्वस्तिक:)
The word Allah is unique in Arabic. However, the word Khuda in Persian/ Urdu seems (to me) as if it is describing the essential quality of Allah that He came by Himself (KHUD + AA)
I am encouraged by similar meaning from the Sanskrit word ‘swastika’, meaning swayam+ ast) He came in to existence Himself. Although the word swastika is used for the symbol
(卍 and 卐) that is common both for the Nazis and for the Hindus/ Buddhists, it probably stood first for God.
On the other hand, the Sikhs say, “Jo bole so nihal, Sat Sri Akal.” Timeless is He and any one who accepts this true fact will be saved.
