IS Islam and Indian culture the same?
Indian culture is way too different from the Islamic culture.
Actually, I don't agree with the first answer. Because if you mean Indian culture as a whole then yes, because Islam has a big role in Indian culture as does Hinduism, Sikh, and various other religions all play a role to create the Indian culture. Now if by Indian culture you are referring only to the Hindus, then no, they are not at all the same in religious regard, but a llot of them still uphold the same Indian cultural customs and lifestyle.
Islam positively afffects the culture of its followers. Islam has no culture of its own and it only regulates the local culture of its followers. the result is that the people retain their own culture and yet they accomodate the Islam. The influence of Islam only provides for equality of women and rule of law and provides for punishment for a few crimes. For the most parts, the culture of the country prevails.
A possession in Islam is the same in any other religion or culture on condition that it should be Halal "not stolen or not made of any thing that is Haram "prohibited" in Islam. This applies to food, cars, properties .... etc. Islam encourages trading between people and nations, ecourages science, discoveries... etc. All that is good for human being is encouraged by Islam.
