Is it possible to be part of any religion (other than an Abrahamic religion) like Hinduism or Buddhism, for example, but still believe in/worship God?

Which God?

Dark Energy. It can be found in the observable Universe. Found in ratios of 75% more than any other substance. Dark Energy. It can be found in religious extremists, in cheerleaders. To come to the conclusion that Dark signifies mean and malevolent would define 75% of the Universe as an evil force. Alternatively, to think that some cheerleaders don't have razors in their snatch is to be foolishly unarmed.

Nobody can stop you.  It might be considered unorthodox, though.
However, Hinduism already has a God (or several, depending on your view.  Many Hindus believe all of the gods are like rays of light from the One God).  Buddhism does not have one.

If Buddhism had both an immortal soul (not eternal), and a Creator God, I would be Buddhist again, in a heartbeat. :)

I don't think you can BE Hindu or any religion that already has a different god than yours. As for whether you can be Buddhist and believe in gods, well, that depends on who you ask. But you can certainly believe in whatever god you want and bring aspects of Buddhism or Hinduism into your life.

I don't follow an Abrahamic religion, but I'm still monotheistic. (I assume you're talking about a monotheistic concept of God.) I'm not sure whether it could work with a polytheistic religion like Hinduism, for example.

If you're talking specifically about the god that the Abrahamic religions follow, it might be tougher, but you could probably still make it work. I do know there are Christian Wiccans out there (though a lot of people don't think that path is valid).

And a lot of people follow the philosophy of Buddhism while still believing in another religion.

I'm still asking which god are we talking about here.

To me God is the Spark of LIFE in every living cell in the universe, that is why we are all born in the Image of God. That Image is the only Image that is the same in all humans on Earth.

If you really think God is the Image of a old man with a white beard, you are really in la la land.

When people go to heaven and come before THE God they say God looks like a pure ball of energy. A large ball of light. They say Jesus looks like a human of light or a light being.

Research, Research, Research I really think God sends those people back to Earth just so we really would Know and understand what God and Heaven looks like. So if you got to See the Kingdom on Earth you would really know what you are seing, and not something Manifested by Man.
