The Upanishads are one of the most ancient and important books among Hindu Scriptures. These books have a unique importance in Indian

Philosophy. Scholars have done very significant researches on this scripture. Innumerable articles and books have been written on different

Upanishads, but no significant work has so far been done on studying the theological concepts of Upanishad in the light of Quranic Theology. One reason behind this may be lack of comprehensive knowledge of Upanishads in Muslim scholars. Indeed it is quite difficult to understand

abstract thoughts found in them. However, the re is no dispute upon the necessity of exploring and comparing the common theological concepts of Upanishad and Quran. This article presents a comparative analysis of the theological concepts of Taittirīya Upanishad and the Quran. The rationale behind choosing Taittirīya among many from many Upanishads is the fact that it is considered as most significant source book of Vedanta Philosophy. According to the author’s findings there are some basic similarities between theological concepts of the Holy Quran and Taittirīya Upanishad with respect to the concept of God. We believe that it is a unique topic on which no research work has been published by journals. Hence, the subject has a great contemporary significance for both Muslims and Hindus
