Both Arihants and Siddhas are considered Gods of Jain religion. Arihats are perfect human beings and preach the Jain religion to the people after attaining keval_jnan. After death they become Siddhas. All Siddhas are perfected souls, living forever in a blissful state in Moksha.

Jain is derived from the word Jina, referring to a human being who has conquered all inner passions and possess Kevala Jnana . Followers of the path shown by the Jinas are called Jains.Followers of Hinduism are called Hindus.
