The Top Ten
1 Qur'an The Qur'an is the holy book of Islam, believed to be a revelation from God (Allah) to the Prophet Muhammad over a period of approximately 23 years. Comprising 114 chapters, or Surahs, the Qur'an serves as a guide in all aspects of life and is considered the ultimate source of authority by Muslims.

As I pen down these words, my heart overflows with gratitude for the profound beauty that lies within the timeless verses of the Quran. The Quran, a sacred gift to humanity by God Allah Almighty, carries a message so breathtakingly beautiful that it transcends the boundaries of language and culture. It touches the depths of every soul that seeks guidance and solace.

Within its pages, the Quran reveals an exquisite tapestry of wisdom, compassion, and divine grace. It whispers to us with words that illuminate the path of righteousness. It teaches us to embrace love, mercy, and justice as the pillars of our existence. Its verses are like radiant stars, guiding us through the darkest nights and reminding us of our purpose and the eternal connection we share with our Creator.

The Quran's beauty lies not only in its majestic language but also in the profound depth of its teachings. It speaks of unity, emphasizing the inherent equality and dignity of every human being. It reminds us that we are all part of one tapestry, bound by a common thread of humanity, irrespective of our backgrounds or beliefs. It teaches us to embrace diversity, celebrate differences, and foster harmonious coexistence.

In the Quran, I find solace amidst the storms of life. Its soothing verses heal the wounds of the heart, offering comfort in times of sorrow and trials. It reminds us that this world is a transient abode, and true success lies in nurturing our souls and leaving a positive impact on the lives of others.

2 Bible The Bible is the central religious text for Christians, divided into the Old Testament, which overlaps with the Hebrew Bible, and the New Testament, which outlines the life and teachings of Jesus Christ. It has been translated into numerous languages and is one of the most widely read books in the world.

The Quran is not the No. 1 book of the world. Only the Bible is the No. 1 book of the world because most prophecies of the Bible are fulfilling and fulfilled. On the other hand, other religious books do not have prophecies like the Bible.

It's cool because you can interpret it in any way you want and apply it to your life.

This is the only true Word of God there is. Period.

3 Mahabharata The Mahabharata is one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India, the other being the Ramayana. Composed over several centuries, it tells the story of the Kurukshetra War and the fates of the Kaurava and the Pandava princes. The text also contains the Bhagavad Gita, a significant spiritual scripture.

You will never find divine knowledge like in the Bhagavad Gita, Bible, Quran, and Tripitaka. These are religious books, but the Bhagavad Gita is an all-in-one pack. It contains self-motivation, philosophy, motivation, ego, love, the concept of caste, the essence of religion, understanding the human body, and how to attain peace. It covers everything that every human being needs, regardless of their religious beliefs. The Bhagavad Gita is meant for all human beings.

Mahabharata contains the Bhagwat Geeta, in which the supreme personality, Lord Krishna himself, explains about himself.

But in any of the religious books of the world, God has never explained Himself. He is explained by a human being.

Hence, I can say that Mahabharata is the world's best religious book.

4 Guru Granth Sahib The Guru Granth Sahib is the central religious scripture of Sikhism, considered by Sikhs to be the final, sovereign, and eternal living Guru. Composed in various Indian languages, it contains hymns and teachings of Sikh Gurus as well as Hindu and Muslim saints.

The only religious book written by the enlightened souls during their lifetime, not created by some followers or students. Contains words of God as revealed by Sikh Gurus and saints from various sects and religions.

Gurbani can only give light in this dark age filled with all types of hypocrisy. The Guru Granth Sahib Ji cannot be regarded as a book. It's a living Guru, a universal truth common to humanity.

Knowledge for all humanity, not for a particular religion.

It has everything about past, present, and future. Real Living Guru in this world.

5 Torah The Torah is the central reference of the religious Judaic tradition and is the first part of the Hebrew Bible. It consists of the first five books (Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, and Deuteronomy) and outlines Jewish law and ancient history.

The Bible is literally the Torah, but with a few stories added and a few removed.

6 Tanakh The Tanakh is the canonical collection of Jewish texts, divided into three sections: the Torah (Law), the Nevi'im (Prophets), and the Ketuvim (Writings). It is the Hebrew Bible and serves as a cornerstone in Jewish culture and theology.
7 Bhagavad Gita Part of the Indian epic Mahabharata, the Bhagavad Gita is a 700-verse Hindu scripture. It is in the form of a dialogue between Prince Arjuna and the god Krishna, who serves as his charioteer. The text addresses the moral and philosophical dilemmas faced by Arjuna on the battlefield.

One of the oldest and also very educational books. It not only teaches you about religion but also about life and karma.

The epitome of spiritual knowledge is within this book. The Lord himself reveals all the secrets.

Tell me one book which was recited by God Himself.

8 Book of Mormon The Book of Mormon is one of the sacred texts of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (Mormonism). Believed to be written by ancient prophets in the Americas, it serves as a companion to the Bible in outlining the teachings and doctrines of the church.

The principles and doctrine taught in the Book of Mormon will lead you to grow closer to Jesus Christ! It truly testifies of his divinity, just as the Bible does! It was written for our time, to help us know "to what source we may look for a remission of our sins".

Life-changing. Not only uplifting, but also prophetic in how it follows the rise and fall of a Christian civilization whose history seems to be mirroring our own.

The Book of Mormon has brought me a lot closer to my Savior, Jesus Christ. Anyone can read it and find out for themselves if it is truly God's word.

9 Tripiṭaka The Tripiṭaka, also known as Tipitaka, is the traditional term for Buddhist scriptures. The text is divided into three "baskets" (Pitaka): the Sutta Pitaka (sermons), the Vinaya Pitaka (monastic rules), and the Abhidhamma Pitaka (scholastic interpretation and commentary).
10 Ramayana The Ramayana is one of the two major Sanskrit epics of ancient India, attributed to the sage Valmiki. It tells the story of Rama, an avatar of the god Vishnu, focusing on his efforts to rescue his wife Sita from the demon king Ravana.
The Contenders
11 Kalpa Sutra The Kalpa Sutra is an ancient Jain text containing the biographies of the Jain Tirthankaras, primarily Mahavira and Parshvanatha. It is read and recited during the annual Paryushana festival and serves as an important scriptural resource for Jainism.

According to me, Jainism is the best religion in the world, which forwards the message for peace, harmony, and helping others. It strongly believes in Shakahar, i.e., Jio Aur Jine Do.

It criticizes intelligent design by proposing a fictional deity, the Flying Spaghetti Monster, and has been used to argue against the teaching of intelligent design in public schools.

Yeah, because they were trying to teach Adam and Eve in science, some guy who was obsessed with spaghetti and meatballs, pirates, beer, and strippers decided to invent a weird parody religion.

Compiled by his disciples and followers, the book has significantly influenced Chinese culture, philosophy, and ethical code. It remains a fundamental text for Confucianism.
19 Avesta The Avesta is the primary collection of religious texts in Zoroastrianism, attributed to the prophet Zoroaster (or Zarathustra).

Not a religious book. A book of visions of a better future. It teaches about Yin and Yang, doing by not-doing, and going with the flow. Namaste!
