Description

Gives an expanded version of each of God's Ten Commandments to Moses. Jesus came not to destroy but to fulfil them. But the [local Bengali] Muslims violate each of them. Muhammad gave good teaching that there is only one God. Yet when they are becalmed in their boats, the [Bengali] Muslim sailors implore a Hindu deity to send a wind. Educated Muslims as well as Christians have condemned the bad customs (dastur) of the uneducated local Muslims. They pray to Pirs (saints) to intercede with God when their cows fall sick. Because they understand nothing of the Arabic prayers they pray, their worship does not please God; the Bengali Muslims need new prayers solely in the Bengali language of their parents heard in childhood. The Jews observe Saturday, the Christians Sunday, but the Muslim shopkeepers keep working at their businesses after the Friday congregational prayers.
