Is Namaaz a Sanskrit word
Why wasn't Hinduism spread around the world?
Hinduism has no start date.
In ancient times there was no religion called "Hinduism", it was just Veda (vaidika) or Sanatana Dharma, and it was spread all over the world.
But only people in Bharata desh strictly followed. Other tribes who followed him a little or not at all were the Mlecchas, Yavanas (Greeks), Turushkas (Turks), etc.
For the past hundred years, Western explorers called people living across the Sindh (now in Pakistan) the Sindhus, who over time became Hindus.
Let's look at the two core concepts of the two most widespread religions today - devotion in Christianity and namaz in Islam.
Devotion is synonymous with Sharanagathi in Hinduism. It also sounds the same etymologically.
Namaz is synonymous with Namaste in Hinduism. Again etymologically, the word was derived from it.
When you look at ancient texts in a religion, they have words and concepts that ultimately come from Sanskrit / Vedas.
Eg the word "Brahma" is related to the word "Abraham" and Judaism / Islam / Christianity are all Abrahamic religions.
When some Christians say the earth is 6,000 years old, they are probably unknowingly referring to the fact that today's Yuga - Kali Yuga began about 5,000 years ago. Her story of Noah's ark is the same as that of Manu during the great flood of Matsya Avatara.
There are Hindu temples in Burma and Indonesia.
Kandahar in Afghanistan was the Gandhara Desh in Mahabharata, from which Gandhari & Sakuni came.
Kazakhstan was probably Kaikeya desham because in Ramayana Bharata's wife was from Russia.
California in the USA was probably originally called "Kapilaranyam" - this was the ashram of Kapila Muni that Sagara Kumaras found while searching for the sacrificial horse. The path they dug is now covered with water, hence its name is Sagar (or sea).
There are many more examples showing that Sanatana Dharma was spread all over the world. Over time, religion in Kali Yuga deteriorates so new religions must emerge to meet the needs and characteristics of those who are unable / unwilling to follow the principles of the Vedas.
ANSWER - Hinduism / Sanatana Dharma was once common all over the world.It is not widespread these days because people's minds have deteriorated and they are unable to follow their rules while other religions have fewer / simpler rules.
