The Quran in surah number three, our Emraan Allah spotlight says inviting the people inviting the people of Christian faith to Islam he says I will let him initiate on the regime.

00:02:49--> 00:02:51

The people of the book.

00:02:53--> 00:03:04

The correct answer is the Jews and Christians they are the people of the book. Okay. Now why is it that we call them a little keytab? The people of the book.

00:03:06--> 00:03:58

We call them that because they're the ones who received revelation previously, and had prophets previously. Now that doesn't mean others didn't receive prophets. You know, like Allah tells us in the Quran, that every single community, every single part of the earth, Allah has sent prophets to send prophets to every single nation that lives every single ethnicity. But the most famous prophets were sent to which group of people? Hmm, the most famous ones were sent to me again, put this up as a question for you all you ready? Okay. The most famous profits, the most famous profits were sent to which ethnicity and a,

00:04:00--> 00:04:03

the Jews, also known as Bani Israel, Ill

00:04:05--> 00:04:19

be the Muslims. See, the people who are say, natives, Native Americans or the indigenous population?

00:04:29--> 00:04:33

Which one do you think the most famous prophets were? Were they sent to?

00:04:34--> 00:04:39

write write write the answer as a B or C please.

00:04:43--> 00:04:56

The most famous prophets were sent as you are correctly answering all of you to the Jews aka Bani Israel area. It was they were sent to them starting with

00:04:58--> 00:04:59

his half and then yeah

00:05:00--> 00:05:40

Then use of and then continuing on, finally to Moosa, then Harun, and then the old and so the man and allows us our son rusu Lana tetra Kula ma omata Rasulullah camdeboo. One after the other a Prophet would pass away a new prophet will be sent a prophet will pass pass away, another prophet will be sent. And that was something that Allah, Allah honored Bani Israel even with the Jews, now, the last prophet gave the last prophet sent to Bunny is that an eel

00:05:44--> 00:05:46

was

00:05:48--> 00:05:49

Which one do you think?

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

Was that? That?

00:05:53--> 00:05:56

Was it zecharia

00:05:58--> 00:06:04

was it Yeah. Or was it Isa? Oh was it

00:06:06--> 00:06:08

was the last profit center when he started he will tell me

00:06:10--> 00:06:13

I want you to write the answer. Okay.

00:06:19--> 00:07:09

The last prophet sent to haha correct answer, Masha Allah is Isa Ali Salam. Very good. Yes. So all the famous are the most famous prophets were sent to bunnies, like the last of them were was a silent Salam. But what's interesting is when he saw that Salaam was sent to Bani Israel, even when he saw he did not think and that he was one of their own. Okay. In fact, they wanted to, you know, get rid of him. Now, what's interesting is 100 Kitab, Allah calls the Jews and the Christians look it up. Because the Jews and the Christians have a shared tradition. They share all the profits of Bani Israel. Okay, who do they differ about? They differ about a salary setup. Right? The Jews and

00:07:09--> 00:07:30

the Christians, they share all the profits. And that's why they're called GitHub, the People of the Book, the ones who the profits are sent to and as the profit is sent to, the prophet brings the book. So Allah honors them, but this title by calling them People of the Book, this is a very important thing.

00:07:31--> 00:08:16

They are honored by Allah subhanaw taala by being called the people of the book, you see, that is how we talk to people, we talk to people by honoring them by, you know, giving them acknowledging what's good about them. You see, we don't try to have a conversation where we are insulting somebody, this is not proper etiquette. And if you want to, you know, say like, convince someone of something, or try if you're trying to, you know, win somebody over, you cannot start by insulting them, because if you insult them, they will not listen to anything you have to say even if everything you say is right. Do you agree with that people? Yes or no? Yes. Right. what other people

00:08:16--> 00:08:16

think.

00:08:19--> 00:09:01

But if you insulted somebody, even if you're right, they won't listen to you. Do you agree with that? Yes or no? Yes. Right. It's you cannot, like the way we speak to people is just as important as what we say, when we speak to people. So when Allah speaks to the Christians, right, he honors them. He says, You are people of the book, Al Kitab. You are the people who had the most famous prophets sent to them. The most famous books were sent to you, you know about this thing more than any other ethnicity in the world. That is why what should you do? The ILO Come,

00:09:02--> 00:09:36

come, let's talk about this. Isla Kenny Mateen Saba in Benin, our benaco Let's talk on common grounds. Right, what is common between us? Let's talk about that. What is common between us and Jews? And Christians? I want you to tell me people from the ayah what is the common between us and the Jews and the Christians? Is it because like, we all believe in prophets, and promises one thing that's common, but we differ about which profit to believe, but what is something all of us believe? Oh, last one.

00:09:37--> 00:09:48

The last one, okay. From the IRA itself, can someone give me from the quote from the translation? Let's see if you can raise your hand and I'd like to ask you if you found the answer.

00:09:50--> 00:09:59

Huh, who is it? Other hon. Do want to give us the exact quotation. I don't know. You don't know anybody else.

00:10:01--> 00:10:02

I want to pick somebody randomly that

00:10:06--> 00:10:06

is, are you?

00:10:08--> 00:10:17

Sorry, I'm good. I was trying to find the spot to raise your hand, but I couldn't find it. But no problem is, I know the answer. Okay, can you tell us the answer?

00:10:19--> 00:10:34

People of the Book, let us come to a word common to us that we shall worship none but God and that we shall associate no partner with him, and that none of us shall take others besides God for Lord.

00:10:35--> 00:10:39

Is that will we all is that common in all of us?

00:10:40--> 00:10:45

Yes, Muslims, Jews and Christians that we worship none but God. Do we all agree on that?

00:10:47--> 00:11:11

Yes and No, actually, yes. Actually. Yes. Do you know what happened with pieces? Spirit God thing? Okay. We'll talk about it as a good question. Right? What are the 10 commandments? Do you know the 10 commandments, the 10 commandments, this is like one of the most important parts of the Bible. This is what does it say? Now what's number one the 10 commandments?

00:11:12--> 00:11:16

worship none bought along? Tell me what is it? What does it say? Read read was on the screen.

00:11:19--> 00:11:24

You shall have no God. gods before Me shall not make

00:11:25--> 00:11:28

fun. You shall have no other gods before me. ie.

00:11:30--> 00:11:42

You what? You shall worship none but God. Yes or no? Yes. And that we shall associate no partner with him. Hmm. Okay. So can you read the second commandment?

00:11:45--> 00:12:16

shall not make idols do not make idols. Yes. And that's that right? cannot have another partner with him. And none of us shall take others besides God for lords. This is in the this is the thing that in it's part of the Bible, the most famous part of the Bible, you can say, are the 10 commandments, you see? And that's what the Quran says, Come, let's agree to that. Right? We all agree on this. Let's do that.

00:12:17--> 00:12:19

Allah de la la, la la,

00:12:20--> 00:12:23

la, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba, ba mundo de la. Let's do that.

00:12:24--> 00:12:41

Now, what is that? Where is the problem? For the people who are Christians? The Christians say, Well, yes, we don't worship anything but God, but God is made up of God the Father, and Jesus the Son.

00:12:43--> 00:12:50

Hmm, that's what this is. And this is also the Holy Spirit. You know what this is called? This is called the anybody know the word for it?

00:12:51--> 00:12:54

Three gods in one. What is

00:12:55--> 00:13:16

the Holy Trinity? The Holy Trinity. That's what they call it. Correct. Trinity means something is three. He said that God is yes, we worship God, but God is who we say God is, you know, the Lord of the heavens and the earth. Like, no, no, God is the Lord of the heavens of the earth, plus Jesus, plus the Holy Spirit, which is God.

00:13:17--> 00:13:23

Now, we're like, wait, that means you're worshipping three gods. Right? Just don't know.

00:13:25--> 00:13:43

Is it 321? It's only one right? But when they see that, is it three then? Yes, right. So this is where the confusion is. This is where the problem is. So now when we have a confusion and a problem, right, they say we say, we all agree.

00:13:45--> 00:13:52

Worship one God, right? We all agree on that. Okay. But they say well, actually,

00:13:53--> 00:13:55

well, actually, God is what?

00:13:59--> 00:13:59

God is.

00:14:00--> 00:14:01

three parts.

00:14:04--> 00:14:06

You with me? Yeah. Shahada.

00:14:07--> 00:14:08

Okay, go ahead.

00:14:10--> 00:14:27

Please. We say Well, God, God, okay. You think God's three parts? Let's actually talk about who we all agree on. We all agree on Ibrahim, right? We all trace our religion back to Ibrahim. Did Ibrahim

00:14:29--> 00:14:36

did Ibrahim let's let's let's resolve this conflict. Let's Let's resolve this by looking

00:14:37--> 00:14:39

at someone

00:14:40--> 00:14:44

who we all agree with. Right?

00:14:45--> 00:14:46

Who's that person?

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

Ibrahim alayhis. Salam people You with me? The question is did Ibrahim Alayhi Salam worship God in three parts

00:15:04--> 00:15:05

Yes or no?

00:15:12--> 00:16:11

The answer is an emphatic No. Right. Ibrahim Ali Salam worshiped a law alone Magana Ibrahim, we Odeon what Rania Wallach in Ghana hanifa muslimah he was an upright man who had surrendered himself to God. So panela Okay, so, hey, Christians, you want you are the people the book you have received the most famous prophets? Okay? The most famous of them is Ibrahim, how about we worship Allah? The way Ibrahim worshiped Allah? How about that? That is how the Quran is inviting the Christians to Islam, right? This is not we're not inviting you to something that's brand new. We're inviting you to come. And let's all be like Ibrahim. Let's all be like the one we all agreed in Rahim Allah set

00:16:11--> 00:16:35

up, right? And that is a beautiful way of inviting people. It's a very beautiful way of extending out the hand. And if a person you know it takes it hamdulillah that's good for them. If they don't take it, then that's their loss right now. This is how the Quran invites. Now after that the Quran speaks about

00:16:36--> 00:16:51

the people who reject this beautiful call, right? People who recognize you know what, this is actually correct. But not everybody does what's right. So Allah Partha says here are let's see, can we have our home? Are you there?

00:16:54--> 00:17:06

Yes, I'm there. I have it there. Okay, perfect. All right. I'd like you to read the Arabic but let's pick a volunteer to read the English translation. Okay, who would that be if you can raise your hand? That will be really nice.

00:17:11--> 00:17:17

Anybody? All right, so Hey, thank you. So Hi. I will ask you to unmute yourself or next time inshallah.

00:17:19--> 00:17:23

All right. So Adam, could you please read the Arabic? Okay.

00:17:25--> 00:17:34

Rue de La Nina Shay up on your Audi Bismillah Manny Rafi

00:17:35--> 00:17:42

Yeah, Gita De Lima del V. Sunil how kabhi bow 3d what a

00:17:44--> 00:17:44

follower.

00:17:47--> 00:17:48

So go ahead.

00:17:52--> 00:17:57

People have the book. Why do you make truth with falsehood and knowingly conceal the truth?

00:17:59--> 00:18:11

Mashallah, great job, you guys. Why do you mix truth with falsehood and knowingly conceal the truth? Right, here is a question for you.

00:18:13--> 00:18:20

Does everyone who knows something is right.

00:18:23--> 00:18:27

Do they notice anyone or sorry, let me rephrase

00:18:29--> 00:18:34

it does everyone who know something is right, actually

00:18:36--> 00:18:38

acts on what's right.

00:18:40--> 00:18:55

There's a different difficult way of wording a question, but let me explain. If you know something is right, you know, this is the right thing to do. Okay. I'll give you an example. If somebody is being bullied. Does that happen?

00:18:56--> 00:19:03

Yes, it happens all the time, unfortunately. Right? You do? No, that's wrong. Did you recognize that as something that's wrong?

00:19:06--> 00:19:22

Yes or no? Yes, you right, you should recognize that as wrong. Right. It's important for your spiritual well being. When you see something wrong, you recognize that, that this thing is actually wrong. Okay. Now,

00:19:24--> 00:19:25

the question is,

00:19:26--> 00:19:42

you know that this is wrong. And the right thing to do was just to do something about it to say something. Yes. But as everybody who sees that, and knows is wrong, and the right thing is to say something to they actually say something? No.

00:19:43--> 00:19:59

Do a lot of people say something? No, they're very few people actually say something. Right. And this is one of the problems with us. This is one of the flaws of us as human beings, that we would know something is right

00:20:00--> 00:20:20

We won't do anything about it. And the reason why we wouldn't do anything about it is probably because we're afraid. Or maybe, you know, we think it's inconvenient, or maybe just don't care. As long as it's not hurting me, right. And this is unfortunately the way a lot of us are conditioned to think.

00:20:21--> 00:21:11

So the Quran knows that it's made a very compelling argument, worship God as Ibrahim worship God, worship God, only nobody else. Yeah, now that should be like a checkmate, everybody should quickly figure out that this is the right way to do it. But again, human nature, very few people will actually do something. That is correct. Very few. Most people will even if they know what's right, will not really take any action. And that's what a lot squanto says. People have the book, you are the ones who are the inheritors of all these profits for these books. What are the profits do they did what's right, they stood up for what's right. How can you don't stand up and do what's right,

00:21:11--> 00:21:26

hmm, how can we don't do that? This is something that I mentioned. And again, this is that extended invitation that allows Panther is extending to the children or the

00:21:27--> 00:21:28

to to

00:21:29--> 00:21:33

to the Christians and to the Jews. Okay.

00:21:34--> 00:21:50

A lot smarter comments. I am number 79. Okay, I number 79 he says let me share my screen again. And again I'll have two volunteers read this So again, if you'd like can you read the Arabic And let's have who was a beloved before sorry or not? What the

00:22:39--> 00:22:40

00:22:41--> 00:22:45

Boo. Are you bad didn't he? Do Nila

Nila una

00:22:50--> 00:22:57

una Rabbani gene Abby makan Evo Nikita, bahagi. Mack.

00:23:03--> 00:23:15

No one. God has given this scriptures and on whom he has bestowed wisdom and Prophethood would say to men, worship Me, in light of God,

00:23:16--> 00:23:24

be devoted servants of God for you have thought and studied the scriptures.

00:23:25--> 00:23:52

Again, look at this, Allah smartlist saying something very profound. Are you guys? Okay? He's like, no person in the history of humanity, who a lot chose to be a prophet has said, worship means that of God. Nobody. Right. And that's not the way of Abraham that's not the way of Moses. That's definitely not the way of Jesus and he was around.

00:23:53--> 00:24:02

No one who Allah gave scripture and wisdom and Prophethood what save the people you know what, the better thing to do was you take me as a god.

00:24:03--> 00:24:50

But in fact, he would say be devoted servants of God. For you have been taught the Scripture and you study the scripture again last month was reminding them right that you are people have literacy you have studied, you know what's up, right? So if you know what's up there, the expectation for you to do the right thing is actually higher. If you're just oblivious. You don't know anything. Okay, you can kind of excuse a person from being ignorant. Yeah. But if they're not ignorant, if they know what's going on the expectation from Allah subhanaw taala is that you do the right thing. So he says, look, you knew this stuff. No prophet has ever said this before. Also, no prophet has ever

00:24:50--> 00:24:50

said

00:24:51--> 00:24:56

number is number 80. Again, I don't have to keep asking you to read the I hope you don't mind. I

00:24:58--> 00:24:59

know it's okay.

00:25:00--> 00:25:13

100 Let's see, can we have somebody who can read the English? I volunteer? Somebody who hasn't wanted yet. So have you did martial arts sokolova Jaffer, also, let's pick on an octagon. But like, ask

00:25:15--> 00:25:19

dog Are you would you be up for it? Do I smile?

00:25:26--> 00:25:29

Maybe it's not okay. So I'm sure it's about. All right. Go ahead. Dr.

00:25:35--> 00:25:41

De La Nina Shea upon you're watching Bismillah in LA and you're watching me.

00:25:42--> 00:25:45

Whether you're Moroccan definitely when

00:25:47--> 00:25:54

you get a one Nabina Alba, yet Moodle, Bill cofely by the

00:25:55--> 00:25:55

tune,

00:26:00--> 00:26:10

know what he enjoying you take the angels and the prophets as your lords, how could he command you to be disbelievers asking you have submitted to God,

00:26:11--> 00:26:53

Mashallah, nor would any person again this is continuing right? No person whom God has given scripture to and given wisdom and Prophethood to I would say, the people that were, you know, take angels and prophets as your Lord, He will never say worship me, he will never say worship this angel, you will never see worship another person. Hmm. He would never say that. And again, what is Allah addressing? Here? He's addressing the idea of the Trinity. How can Jesus pray, you know, say, pray to God, pray to me and pray to angels? jabril? How could he say that? Because no one else has ever said it. No one else has ever said it in the history of humanity, who Allah has given wisdom

00:26:53--> 00:27:31

and Prophethood to I remember, when I was in university, we used to have these like dhaba boots, you know, like, we would set up like a table, and we would give out free for the people and flyers and whatnot, they would tell me about Islam. And then sometimes, you know, most people wouldn't even care. They're just too busy, like, you know, is going about their lives. But there are some people who would be like, you know, what, I'm interested to see what you have to say, right? And I have one of my friends, actually, from one of my classmates, you want to stop by? He was, you know, he was asking me he's actually an atheist, not even a Christian. But he said, how, like, you know, how can

00:27:31--> 00:28:13

he say, like, Well, you know, Jesus says, he's God. Right? Then like, how could you counter that as a Muslim? And then I remember saying this, and I didn't didn't really know much about Iran back that at that time, I didn't study a lot at that time. I didn't know as much. But the answer just blurted out of my mouth. And I remember that moment to this day. And I said, because no one else has ever said that. No prophet before him said this. Moses didn't say this. Abraham didn't say this. Right. And this is exactly says the same thing. So holla what came out of my mouth was actually something that the Quran had. And it's a powerful argument that How could he say Listen, I'm break the, the

00:28:13--> 00:28:21

like, you know what, everyone has done the tradition? How could you break the tradition and do something that forget about breaking the tradition?

00:28:22--> 00:29:01

Uh, yeah. maruchan bill coffee bar Ilan Tomasi moon, how could you command to be command you to be disbelievers? How does that make any sense? How can a prophet come and say, alright guys be disbelievers. Huh? By then to Muslim moon. So this is again a very, very strong argument that the Quran makes to address the Christian theology and address it, you know, in a direct way and rested in an indirect way bring them closer to get to them or bring bring the ideas close. But also, you know,

00:29:02--> 00:29:11

the Quran Allah subhanaw taala is chastising them right he's you know, being stern that why if you know something is right, why are you still not doing it? Right?

00:29:13--> 00:29:59

And he says in this ayah, that I felt lado de la jolla baboon. Do this seek a religion other than the religion of God, when everything in the heavens and earth has submitted to him, willingly or unwillingly, and to him all shall return? This is a beautiful I am okay, I want you to think about this. This ayah is telling us that the religion of Allah Isla de la jolla baboon was a semi man personality without everything follows God's commands. Okay? The ultimate authority is with a lost pinata bow on okarin toe unwillingly, Gohan, unwillingly, willingly, in the sense that if we as Muslims

00:30:00--> 00:30:49

Do something except the you know what's right and what's wrong, except the will of God. As you know what we should be doing that is stolen, we're doing it willingly, right? Carnahan is everybody who is bound by the laws of Allah. Right? Like you cannot run at the speed of light, light can go faster than the speed of light, right? You can't escape the atmosphere without dying, you have to like wear, like a very special suit and have oxygen because your body needs oxygen. These are the constraints that Allah Allah has put on every single human being, nobody can escape them. Yeah, all of us need food, all of us need to go use the washroom, all of us will die one day, that's something

00:30:49--> 00:31:41

we all agree on. Right? These are the constraints, though on our car, when you have to accept them, whether you like them or not. So what I see is, he is the one you already know, is in charge, because he is the one who has made the system that you live in. He is the one who is eternal, for the system to exist, that a system that is, you know, has a beginning, a system that has an end, ie it's finite, for it to exist, something infinite, something eternal has to exist for that to be in place. Otherwise, you will have what's called an infinite regression. That's a logical fallacy. It's like a problem with logic. Right? You can have that. So for if we know that the universe has a

00:31:41--> 00:31:51

beginning, and we know it's heading towards an end, yes, logically, then logically, you have to accept that there had to be someone who predicted the universe

00:31:53--> 00:32:17

to have brought it into existence. And that's what we say about Allah, Allah, He is a low summit. He is the one who is eternal is the one who is eternal, the necessary one, the one we all depend on the Word of God, whether you like it or not, whether you like it or not, and that is he it's a deep point. Right? Now. Allah says also

00:32:19--> 00:32:37

that what is our commitment, like Who are we as Muslims, right? Who are we as Muslims what is like our, like our our statement of faith? This is our statement of faith. Okay. Let's actually have a man you want to read this. I will give him a small break because our machine has been doing a great job.

00:32:39--> 00:32:41

And he will read this for you. Okay.

00:32:42--> 00:32:44

And then Jafar, perhaps you can read the transition.

00:32:46--> 00:32:47

Okay.

00:32:49--> 00:33:18

Go ahead. Mr. Miller, rough man. Come on, man. Bella Roma. cirano amanzi. Darla Brahim was my was helpful I a hobo on up while a sport a llama otium so why seven aviana min min Robbie him learn for being a HUD min. I had him in home, national under home, Simone. Good job, man.

00:33:20--> 00:33:20

Java.

00:33:22--> 00:33:30

say we believe in God and in what has been sent down to us and to Abraham, Ishmael,

00:33:32--> 00:34:22

Isaac, Jacob and the tribes, we believe in what has been given to Moses, Jesus and the prophets from the Lord. We make no distinction between any of them, it is to him that we have surrendered ourselves. Amazing. This is our statement of faith. This is our declaration of of of who we are right? We are following the religions of all the profits from from the beginning of time to the last profits from masala right. And we believe in them and we make no distinction between them. It is to Allah we all submit just like all these prophets have submitted to Allah subhanho wa Taala now we believe here's a question for you guys you guys ready for this question? This is an important

00:34:22--> 00:34:46

question. Okay was the is was the original Torah the Word of God the Word of God yes or no people was the original Torah the word of god yes. And I'd like you to like if you'd like to use the you know yes or no button on zoom. You can use that or you can type yes or no

00:34:48--> 00:34:51

Mashallah, very good. you're typing and if you are typing

00:34:52--> 00:34:59

the answer as as Yes. Okay. You can use the button because the button is a lot easier to if you don't want to type you

00:35:00--> 00:35:03

The rest of you guys to come on do you know? type Come on.

00:35:05--> 00:35:22

Okay. Hmm. The original Torah, we actually believe the original Torah that was revealed by Allah, tala to musala. Salam was the word of Allah. Absolutely. We believe that yes, the answer is yes. Okay. Was that raw

00:35:27--> 00:35:30

corrupted by the people?

00:35:32--> 00:35:37

After its revelation, you know what corrupted me? Right?

00:35:38--> 00:35:46

It's like, it got changed, not changed. corrupted means like, imagine the pound like a box of tissues. Right? Right. You know, like,

00:35:48--> 00:35:58

right. Well, it's not many tissues in it, but it's okay. Right? Imagine corrupting it would be like, I take all the tissues out. Yeah. And then I stuffed them back in.

00:35:59--> 00:36:33

Is it originally the tissues are originally still there, right? Mm hmm. No. But the order of the tissues is not right. It's not touched. It's not it's all jumbled and squished. You got me, right? That's the idea of corrupting something. Okay. Now, was that all corrupted by the people after it's the revolution polluting it in a way polluting is used for like the environment more so. But corrupting Yes, the answer is yes. Right? That is a correct answer. So the Torah was corrupted by the people.

00:36:34--> 00:36:36

was the original

00:36:37--> 00:36:38

Injeel

00:36:40--> 00:36:41

the Word of God?

00:36:43--> 00:36:45

No, yes or no?

00:36:46--> 00:36:47

I don't think

00:36:48--> 00:36:50

Shahada Ah, yes.

00:36:51--> 00:36:57

Though, I heard this story that someone a king paid him like for every letter.

00:36:58--> 00:37:17

Its way in gold, that he changes like the Bible or the Torah was, we'll talk about we'll talk about Hold on. No, I'm building up building up to something Okay, hold on. Is this true? The original Injeel Hmm. The original Injeel the Word of God in G was given to who is our Islam right?

00:37:18--> 00:37:19

was not the word of God.

00:37:22--> 00:37:35

It's actually Yes, it is the word of God. Why? Because Allah mandevilla mama Allah Allah, Allah, Allah Ibrahim was mine is happy aku mama Oto musawah, Isa, right?

00:37:36--> 00:37:43

Every single original book that Allah gave to a prophet, we believe is what?

00:37:44--> 00:37:51

The word of Allah, just like we believe the Quran is the word of Allah. Are you guys with me?

00:37:52--> 00:38:05

Yes, this is an important point, you guys. Okay? We believe all of the original revelations that Allah sent was the speech of Allah, just like the Quran is the speech of Allah? Yeah.

00:38:07--> 00:38:11

Was the original? Or was the Injeel

00:38:13--> 00:38:17

corrupted by the people after its revelation? Yes or no?

00:38:21--> 00:38:25

The answer to the question is also predictably now.

00:38:26--> 00:39:08

What? Yes, yes. So what what what, what am I trying to say? What we're trying to say is that the original revelation was the word of Allah, then the people corrupted it. And now, there is just like the tissue example, there is some original stuff that is actually an original tissue paper. But there's others that have been corrupted by by the person who's trying to pull it out and stuff it back in. Right? This means that the Torah that we have today, the Injeel, are the remnants of Injeel, the remaining part of the Injeel. Today, those two together is the Bible.

00:39:09--> 00:39:25

That what we believe is the original source is Allah, the original copy of it, an altar was the speech of Allah. And we believe that because that's what the Quran says we do.

00:39:26--> 00:39:47

But we also know not just believe we know that those words have been changed. How do we know that? Well, we know that through history, there's actually a very detailed study done by historians who, for example, talk about I'll show you one example of it.

00:39:53--> 00:39:53

Right

00:39:55--> 00:39:56

that

00:40:01--> 00:40:01

Hold on.

00:40:07--> 00:40:10

There is many examples for example of

00:40:11--> 00:40:31

here, here's one example for you, okay? a historical study of how the who changed the Bible and why, right? This is written by a non Muslim guy, this is written by a, but actually a scholar of Christianity like a historical historian of, of the,

00:40:32--> 00:40:53

of Christianity, right? The story behind who changed the Bible and why there's actually a long history, right, of how it took place. And this is documented, you can actually document it, you can compare manuscripts, and you can say, Oh, this versus that. Yeah. So Subhanallah, this is something that is a true historical fact.

00:40:54--> 00:41:09

People changed it, because, you know, it's actually back in the day, if you wanted to make a copy of the Bible, you wouldn't go to like a photocopier, you would sit there and he would write it, or you will look at it and you write and you look at it, and you write it, and is there a chance that you make a mistake?

00:41:11--> 00:41:58

Right, but also, as the people were writing it, they're like, you know what, this ayah is gonna make me less powerful. So I'm going to actually remove this if the Quran says you have reformed and Kadima, Amal de changing the words around, so it's more convenient for me. It's more gives me more power. I eat the people who came after these profits, they change the scripture for their own benefit their own purposes. And this is a historical fact. This is not something that is like up for debate or something. You see, that is the reality of those books. And that's what the Quran says to them. The Quran says all people, you look at our last mother makes this beautiful argument starts by

00:41:58--> 00:42:23

saying to them, Look, you guys, that's all worship God, just like Abraham worship God. Okay? You don't like that? Why don't you like them? That's not that's exactly what all prophets have said no prophet before has ever said, Oh, you know what, you guys just worship me as a prophet and don't worship God. No prophet has ever said, worship God and in an angel and a prophet.

00:42:24--> 00:43:06

So Jesus didn't say that and wouldn't have said it. Okay. Everything is under the command of God, you are under the command of God as well. Hmm. And we as believers, we actually believe in Allah. And all the messengers he sent in all the books, he said, we believe all of them are the original words of God, all of them are our speech of God. Just like we believe the Quran is the speech of God as well. So now, we ask you, right? As Christians, you know, come to Allah, Allah collimated, Salah in vain and available come to a word that's common between us, let's let's, you know,

00:43:07--> 00:43:49

this is who we are. You are people the book, you should know this better than anybody else. And that's the argument. The Quran makes a very beautiful argument, if you if you think about it, write a very beautiful invitation. If you remember, I mentioned the very beginning of this, that when we are studying this surah, we're going to talk about addressing the Christians. And this is a very beautiful way that ally addresses the Christians handled in that. Okay, with that, we will actually stop. If there's other questions or comments you have, we will take them. And next week, we will talk about the Battle of art, and how this all relates, because you know, you're not even Christians

00:43:49--> 00:44:04

to the Battle of or what this seems like two different topics altogether. But there's a very deep connection. And we'll talk about the Battle of Ohio next week, how the surah talks about it and what the connection is. But I'd like to open up the floor and see if you guys have any questions or comments.

00:44:08--> 00:44:43

Should you have a question? Hmm, you're gonna wait, you're not gonna tell us about how the Bible changed boy. The exact details of how it changed? Yeah, well, that's like a something that's not like exactly the topic of our discussion. But you can check it out. You know, if you want to go and, you know, see a video by this guy, Bart Ehrman, right. He has videos about how, you know, the Bible changes and everything. But, you know, irrespective of how we know, just historically, there's so much evidence to show it.

00:44:46--> 00:44:49

Now, you can check it out. It's not as you know, it's not a it's not a bad thing.

00:44:52--> 00:44:53

Okay.

00:44:55--> 00:44:57

Yeah. Other questions or comments? Anybody?

00:45:00--> 00:45:04

Even if they're not related, you know, you can ask something that's, um, be unrelated as well.

00:45:13--> 00:45:21

In the class, we have one Wednesday. Is that Is it on the same topic on RV learning a battle?

00:45:23--> 00:45:48

That is the one on Wednesday. That no that's not the same one. No, no, for young professionals one, I think Yeah. Oh, that's that's actually once a month and it's not happening this Wednesday. But that one is actually more about like, like last time we were talking about investing and Riba interest itself, so it's more different topic. Okay, yeah.

00:45:53--> 00:46:00

Okay, hamdulillah I actually want you guys to, if you have any questions that are even not related, I want you to feel free to

00:46:01--> 00:46:10

ask them to me, you know, reach out to me and ask them inshallah, whatever. As you you know, whatever is on your mind, okay? I don't want you to feel that

00:46:11--> 00:46:22

this is like a monologue. I'm the only one speaking at you would like you. I would like it to be a dialogue where you're also saying stuff and asking questions. I know it's not

00:46:24--> 00:46:35

it's not always easy to speak in front of, you know, a group of people and you know, they're not all there physically. But please do feel free to ask what's on your mind if something doesn't make sense to you. Okay.

00:46:37--> 00:46:37

Okay.

00:46:38--> 00:46:47

Okay, inshallah, if there is nothing else we will end the call for today. And next week, I'll see you and we will discuss which battle again, remind me

00:46:49--> 00:47:04

Oh, all right. Thank you very much, Dr. Laughlin, thank you for the patience for waiting for me today. I was a little busy with something I was running back to come and be with you guys and but tomorrow next week, inshallah I'll be prompt as usual with Allah

00:47:05--> 00:47:13
