So, I will begin my talk with a short appeal for the machine as well this machine machine the class in Cambridge on devedjian row devantier Road
is going through a
expansion process. And for that reason, the machine needs support. So, those of you who are listening to me right now, whether you are in this material right now or listening to me online links will be provided. So please support the budget project as well as the publication project which is conducted within
the system of this machine. So links will be provided. So I request that you support the publication work the brothers are conducting on the size of Hades and scholars of these their works are being published by brothers who are working in within the machine and the machine itself. And by the way, this fund doesn't come to me, okay, this appears for the machine. There was an atheist recently who picked up picked up on one of my lectures are delivered here. I don't know if you remember that lecture incoherence of atheism. An atheist picked up that video and did a refutation of mine. Okay, took some clips
of that video, and he did his own commentary on it. And you have to go and watch my video in its totality and his reputation to see how manipulative some of these people can be.

This money is not coming to me. So this is very, very clear. We are asking for your support for the masjid here, right here in this Masjid, which is in Cambridge, I don't live in Cambridge brothers who support and control this much I live in Cambridge. So the machine needs to support I don't hamdulillah Allah has blessed me in many ways. So I'll begin with the topic, that man or him. The topic that has been given to me today is a very important one.
The true message of Jesus, Jesus is one of the most important
people who have walked the planet.
In the entire history of humanity. We as Muslims
believe that Jesus is one of the most important figures in Islam. We believe he was a prophet of Islam. Allah Salah, he was one of the mightiest messengers of Allah subhanaw taala. He was one of the five old awesome messengers Rasul
of Allah subhanaw taala. Who are the five of them? Number one is no la Salaam. Number two is Ibrahim. Number three is Moosa.
Number four is Isa and number five is Muhammad Rasul Allah Salallahu alaihe salam, may Allah have
mela sent his blessings upon all of them. So he says Sally salami is one of the most important figures he will be assigned of a lot as illustrated in the Quran. Allah subhanaw taala has mentioned Isa Salaam
25 times by name in the Quran.
And Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam was only mentioned four times by name.
Four times the prophet of Islam Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is mentioned by name. Lisa, the son of Mary is mentioned 25 times there's an entire chapter
for the mother of a Sally salon in chapter 19 chapter 19 of the Quran surah 19 surah Maria
dedicated to the mother of rissalah salah
and the mother of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam upon whom the Quran was revealed, is not mentioned anywhere in the Quran. She's not even mentioned in the Quran.
So it is very clear that the mother of Isa is more important than the mother of Mohammed salatu salam. So Pamela, amazing.
So the man who has received the Quran is telling you that the mother of a Jewish Prophet,
he came from the line of Ishmael,
the son of Ibrahim.
And there was another line of prophets from his heart.
Ibrahim is the father of prophets.
Who is also known as Abraham, in the Western tradition. So Abraham is the father of prophets. And from his descendants came a number of other prophets majority, an overwhelming majority of profits came from the line of is Hawk, also known as Israel in another name of his Hawk was Israel.
Okay, sorry, Yahoo's name was Israel, not Assad. Yahoo was the son of his Hawk. You're right. So Jaco who was the son of his heart, because he is the one who was foretold in the Quran, you know, when we, you know, he was given his black tiding was given to Ibrahim and his wife,
saw or Sarah, right? When the angels came.
This is sort of a route at verse 73.
When Ibrahim and his wife, both of whom were in an old age, you know, they were quite elderly at that time. So when the glass hiding was given to them, that a son will be born to you.
And after that son, another son will be born to that son,
which is yakou journey, his heart will be born to you, and an after his heart will come Yahoo. So, Sarah, she became very surprised.
And then the angels they asked her, are you surprised at the decree of Allah?
Are you surprised the decree of Allah? So this is one of the verses we use to explain that the wives are from the other baits.
Because here, the angels use the same term, you know, when we read the Drude drude ebrahimian is called right Allahumma salli ala Muhammad Ali Muhammad kalasa later library, or Alibaba him in naka de Majeed. These are the same words used by the angels in the Quran in this very worst Surah Hood, verse 73, right. So angels descend blessings upon Sara and her husband, Ibrahim, and they use the word ahlulbayt. You know, Rama to LA he Rahmatullahi
alikum Allah Beatty. Yes. So they say in Who? Me? No me do Majeed. So Allah subhanaw taala they refer to Allah Allah is the one who
the one who has wisdom.
And he's the powerful one in the middle Mooji these are the same words we use in the guru deriving in Naka. amido machine, right? So the same words, when we, when we read the rule,
the same words are in the Quran. And the term there is a debate for the family of Ibrahim, and who was that the wife? The only person there other than Ibrahim was his wife Salah, right? So this is why we argue the wives of the Prophet sallallahu Sallam are definitely without a doubt. ahlulbayt
like some people argue that they're not the other bait, right? The other beta only five people, the Messenger of Allah. Then it is his daughter Fatima that Ali and their children, Pacino saying, in particular, right. And the use of Casa, you know, put his cloak on top of these individuals. Alena Salah, and he said that these are the undertaker, Yala, these are the other big. So they use this beads to reject the notion that the whys of the progress of a sudden could be elevated this another lecture in itself and I've done a lecture on this before in the past. So you may go MIT, you may go and watch that lecture who are the unbaked
So, Ibrahim was given black hiding of his heart and Yahoo, Yahoo Israel is also known as Israel. And then we have the brother of his heart, the older brother of his heart, which is his money. his money is older than his Hark. According to all the reports we have, whether they are Islamic reports or non Islamic Israeli art, Israeli art are the traditions of Medusa. You know, they have a tradition as well. They have a tradition in the form of the Bible, the Old Testament, right?
Or they call the Tanakh, the Jewish scripture, the Jewish box, and we have the tradition of Islam which comes from the Prophet sallallahu sallam. So both traditions are unanimous that his smile was older than his Hawk.
So it's my his line was put in Arabia. Ibrahim Alayhi, Salam came to Arabia left his smile
with his mother in Arabia
in the wilderness,
which is also known as phoron, which is Hejaz. According to the scholars of Islam, and some other academics, for on the Valley of Iran is the region of Hejaz where Mecca is today. Okay. And this is clearly foretold
the advent of the Prophet of Islam Prophet Muhammad was clearly foretold in some of the verses of the Bible that his smile was left in Iran.
He was left there
by his father, which is Arabia
is hot on the other side was in Palestine. Right.
these two brothers, they have two different lines, majority of the profits came from the line of his Hawk and through his heart Yahoo, right. And from the line of Yahoo, yet we Yahoo had 12 sons, as we are told in the tradition, and from these 12 sons came 12 tribes of Israel. That's why they are called Bani Israel, the children of Israel, the children of yaku, right. Okay. So, from these troll tribes came many Israelite prophets. And some of the writings we can see in the Old Testament,
in the books of the Jews. On the other hand, we had
the final prophet from the line of his mind that a Salam mahama salatu salam.
So musala Allah, He certainly Salaam, WA both from the line of his hog from the line of yakou.
And esala salon is one of the mightiest messengers of Allah.
He has mentioned the Quran
and he is praised in the Quran. His mother is praised in the Koran the story of his mother is very, very powerful. I know many people who came to Islam
by reading surah Maria, there are others who read through the use of you know, these are two very powerful sutras in doctrine very, very powerful to us with a very powerful message. Anyone who reads these two surahs with an open heart and mind will see that this is not human concoction, this story or this language, the way is put the way is, you know, presented to the masses, it is not from human mind.
So our use of in particular and supermario, both of them very powerful for us.
So why would an adult man
a child of his mind,
praise the mother of a Jewish prophet over his own mother?
The answer is that it is not him doing it.
If you left the choice to him, he would probably praise His mother over anyone else's mother right? But it has Allah sending this message down to him.
It is Allah who is telling him that Maria has been chosen over all other women
in the history of humanity.
the woman of your own arsia and Dejah, your wife ohama Salatu Salam manufaktur. These are the best two women who walked the planet
so amazingly the Quran has a huge chapter on Isa Islam. So Lisa was the son of Mario, and that makes it very special.
And amazingly the Quran Chapter Three surah Iran
verse 59, where Allah subhanaw taala clearly states that the similitude of Isa is like that of Adam la sala.
So, verse 59 of surah
how to be lying on the regime is a lie. In masahisa in the law, he
The example of Isa is like the example of Adam. Right? He says, like Adam or a Salam
in what sense?
Allah comin, Rob,
Allah subhanaw taala made Adam from Torah, some makalah
some of our local fire Kuhn, and then it was said to him, Be and it was, so he realized making the point about Islam, he said, Islam, as we know, according to the Christian tradition, as well as the Muslim tradition, was born without a father. His birth was supernatural. It was a miraculous birth, it was not a natural occurrence. Like other men esalaam his birth was not
or is making because he wasn't born of a mother, right? Are the Malays Salam was simply made from Torah, from dust. And then Allah subhanaw taala said,
and he became Be and he became, he became alive. Okay, so now
How is he like he's on his law. Similarly, he saw a salon, had no father, no man had a sexual intercourse with his mother, Maria. So she was a young woman who became pregnant, because Allah subhanaw taala caused her to be pregnant without any male intervention to make a point, to make a point, and he was born. Miraculously, this was a miracle conception, miraculous conception, what we call miraculous conception, there was no male intervention. Okay. And one can always come back or maybe you know what this of that No, these the technology we have today, where they can take an egg and take a sperm and planted inside the mother. This technology was not around at the time. In those
days, they had no idea, you know, nowadays, medically what they can do, you know, when parents are trying to have a child, and they simply cannot the mother cannot conceive. So they find another way. What they do is they take an egg from the mother and they take a sperm from the Father, and they put them together in the womb. You know what this? I don't know what this process. Does anyone study medically? Yeah, sorry.
Why is it called IBS? Okay.
I don't know. That is okay. But I know the process because I know some people have done it in vitro.
Okay, so you guys know more than me on this? Yeah. I have no idea how the process works. But I know some people have died. There was no possibility of these things at that time.
So maybe we were the young woman who can see he says Lamanna Allah confirms that in the Quran, that his conception was miraculous. And with the story of ceremony
amazingly, the similarity between anomaly salam, and Islam doesn't stop there. I lost count Allah is addressing one point no doubt,
okay, that they are both similar to each other. Adam was produced without a father as well as a mother. Similarly, Isa was produced without
So they are very similar.
And those who claim that Isa is God for these qualities for these reasons, then Adam qualifies to be more of a god. Why? Because he didn't have a mother also. He didn't have a mother so ally saying they're both similar, but they similarity doesn't stop there. In the Quran. Amazingly, our MLA Salaam is mentioned 25 times by name
25 times My name is Ali Salaam is mentioned 25 times by
In this I have checked myself personally. The both mentioned exactly the same time in the Quran. It doesn't stop there.
So where is this verse surah? Allah Ron verse three, three surah three verse 59
surah three, verse 59
do you all understand that yet chapter three of the Quran verse 59 so how many times is a sir Islam mentioned in the Quran?
How many times is Oliver Islam mentioned in the Quran?
Both the same, right? But it doesn't stop there. When you go from chapter one of the Quran what chapter one of the Quran.
So, right, from chapter one, to chapter 359, where this verse is, both are mentioned seven times each.
So this similarity is actually mathematically coded in the Quran, not only similarity in the birth or their production, not only the production was miraculous, Allah subhanaw taala is telling you they are both young in the Quran, they are both mentioned 25 times each, it doesn't stop there, from chapter one. Circle part two, how to 359 both are mentioned seven times each up to that point, from 359 onwards to oneness.
They are both mentioned 18 times each.
So their similarity is actually mathematically coded within the program. No tell me that the progress all lies and I was sitting with a pen and paper somewhere on a rock, you know, hiding from people and trying to mathematically code the Quran, or the Sahaba or commandment afar, or the committee that actually put the Koran together, you know that the theme of the Quran in the time was modeled the logo and when the Sahaba were commanded by the Khalifa, the miracle behind that was man, then I found on the Alolan that we need to you know, codify the Koran we need to standardize the text of the Quran. So they came together and they started to codify the Quran mathematically,
Is this a coincidence?
Or was it planned? Was it a conspiracy on the part of the Sahaba or the Prophet salallahu Salam was a mathematician, even as he was, even if he was, even if he had a degree in mathematics, a PhD from Harvard, or from Cambridge, or from Oxford, he wouldn't be able to do it.
It is Allah, Allah, Who put it out like that. So they were both similar. So now we know he said Islam is a very important figure in Islam are very, very important. One of the most important messengers of Allah subhanaw taala.
With a lot of importance put on him. A lot of focused on him. To the extent that Rasul Allah, Allah likes alumini foretold the coming of the job that john was he had the job near the end of times.
This person will appear with a lot of power in his hands.
And he will be a great trial for believers.
And he will emerge
on the road between Iraq and Syria a lot of work but
you watch the news. Do you watch the news? Hello?
I'm not surprised Muslims don't watch news sometimes. Yeah, good. Keep watching.
Muslims don't need to watch the law.
Mashallah, as long as we get food and stomachs are full, don't this is going to be towards nouvelle.
If anyone should be watching new this should be you know, Muslims, because you are in the news more than anyone else on the planet. There is nothing happening in the world. Do you? Did you know that? Apart from you, there is nothing happening in the world, the news channels are living
by you through you.
They make money through you the Muslims, either by demonizing you,
or by painting you in a number of different colors, or by reporting on you is all about Muslims is all about Saudi Arabia is all about what's happening in the Middle East. All the wars all the problems. So the Mexican drug cartels are doing nothing. El Salvador is run by a bunch of gangs no problem.
Honduras is the murder capital of the world no problem. Three re three rates are bitumen
In the US, no problem with that. Okay.
Brazil, Australia, China, people are you know, you don't know what's happening in China, do you? India, there's so much poverty there is child prostitution in India. girls as young as five are put into porn. Nope. Do you see that on news?
But it's you. What is the news? Mostly taxi driver didn't allow a dog into his taxi.
A Muslim man
beat his wife.
A Muslim man
divorced his wife because she didn't cover
stories like this. Yeah, this is news for you. Right? So you should be watching news is all about you guys. Come on, you know?
I have seen my friends.
Because of the cross country, he came first. Is he a Muslim? No. Okay.
That's an exception.
Usually Muslims make it to news very fast. You know, if you want to be famous and rich, do something, say something about Islam. And
the jar will appear,
according to an authentic Hadees between Iraq and Syria.
And what's happening now there is very important, it is very, very significant. You know,
something will happen in this region. Only Allah knows what Allah plans to do.
Allah plans are only known to Allah subhanaw taala about something very interesting is happening there in the Middle East.
So he said Islam will come and he will kill the job, he will deal with the job, he will come back and fight the forces of injustice. Okay, so sometimes you see things happening in the middle east of thing also. Pamela, when is this going to end?
Well, when will the Muslims wake up? When will the Arabs wake up?
When will the Muslims take their own affairs into into their own hands? Maybe Allah subhanaw taala doesn't want it to be that way.
Maybe a lot of Allah has another plan. Maybe Lisa will descend on the Salah, and he will sort the problems out. He will deal with the jail and his armies. Okay.
So Eastern Islam for that reason is very, very important, very important in Islam.
So we know he said Islam has been given certain qualities By Allah, and even the Prophet sallallahu a prophet of Islam has put a lot of emphasis on him, that he will return. He says, I will come back, even according to the Quran.
Even according to the Quran, a lot of people don't know this. And some
people known as colonies.
They claim that he saw a Salam died
and he was buried in Kashmir out of all places in Kashmir.
Okay, I don't know why he saw Islam 12 Kashmir is a beautiful, a beautiful place. You know, I know Kashmir is beautiful.
Because I've been I've been part of it. But why Kashmir?
Out of all places, India, Kashmir, is Al Islam could have gone to our Austrian Alps. He could have chosen somewhere in Australia somewhere in America. Yeah.
Oh, there are other nice places, you know, North Wales. Have you been to North Wales here?
Okay. There isn't the place in Spain, you know, like some people claim you know, there is a place called
forgot the full name that, you know, Mary Magdalene, or his birthday or something in France. Okay.
Santiago de Compostela. That's where some people claim that Mary came right. And others claim that she was in France. So people claimed he was in France likewise, there are stories made up recently Salaam according to the armies
or authorities that he died and he was buried in Kashmir yummy okay. But the Koran to the contrary stays in chapter four Soraka Mesa first 159 if I'm not making a mistake on the verse number,
Allah subhanaw taala states
all will be honored in this manner he
Good afternoon. Kita.
lolly Minam Nabil fabula Moti.
Yo, yo poonawalla shahida This is about a solace Allah, that none of the People of the Book
none of them will be left until they believe in him.
Okay, until they believe in Him, blah blah mo T,
Mo D, okay, before his death
and on the Day of Judgment,
he will be upon them a witness for lust.
Okay, so now in this verse chapter four of the Quran, verse 159, Allah is telling us that he is alone will not die until all the people who believe in him
and this is talking about his second coming, when he will come to do what? To find the job
to lift the jizya What does lifting jizya mean? It means he will only give two options to the people of the walk
the hood and nesara He will give them two options.
You either fight me, Jesus will talk to them. He's a wrestler, he the fight me or believing. Okay. And those who will fight him will of course lose because he is
the son of Mary. Allah will give him powers. Right?
And those who will believe in him will believe in him and they will be
the people of the book because Muslims already believe in him.
So this was the Quran says that he has not died
kubla Moti before he dies. Do the People of the Book believe in Him today?
Do the People of the Book believe in Him? Now? Do the Jewish people believe in a Salah Salaam know when you read the Jewish writings, you will see that he saw Islam is seen as an imposter, as a liar as a pretender who was killed brutally by the Romans. And only a liar can be killed like that. This is what some of the Jewish scholars in the past wrote about Isa Salah. Some of these passages can be found in the Talmud.
And their books have been written on these points. And this is one of the reasons why the Jewish people were persecuted in Europe during the Middle Ages, because some of the Christian
clergy they found these passages in the Talmud. And they started to persecute the Jews.
Because they accused us of fostering hatred for the God who is easily Islam right.
And that's when the Jewish people took refuge with the Muslims and Muslims protected the Jewish people in 1000s. For over 1000 years, for over 1000 years, Jewish people were protected by Muslims, whether it was in Spain, or in North Africa, or in the Middle East during the ubit period, or even
during the Ottoman period, the Ottomans protected the Jewish people. Salonika,
also known as the Thessaloniki, you know, one of the cities in Greece, Northern Greece, it was an ottoman city, it was known as one of the most flourishing Jewish settlements in the world.
Jewish people took refuge to the Muslims, but they were persecuted by the Christian West.
Because of these beliefs, on the other hand, do the Christians believe in Jesus? Of course they do. But is their belief correct? Did Jesus ever claim to be God, this is the point now I'm coming to right now. The true message of a Salah Salaam, what is the true message of Jesus?
He was a prophet of Allah. We all believe it. The Christians believed that the Muslims believed that the Jews don't believe that the Jewish people don't believe he was a prophet of God. They believe that he was at best, a sorcerer saw
a magician who learned his magic from Egypt. Right.
But we believe he was not saw here. He was a messenger of Allah was given miracles by last.
Okay, so now, the Christians claim that Jesus was God in flesh, he was God. He was the god you know with capital G. He was God walking on Earth, God incarnate.
God came on earth and walked with us. This is what the Christians believe in.
They believe in the Trinity we as we understand the Trinity consists of three persons who are of the same essence. They are co equal co eternal, they have existed together three persons from eternity. This was the Christian belief.
nature of God was only revealed after Jesus came
on Earth as God.
Did Jesus ever claim that? No. Now this is the point, what is the true message of Jesus?
This is why Jesus will come back and put the record straight, he will tell the Jews and the Christians to either believe in Him or fighter. This is Islamic eschatology, Islamic belief in the end of times, okay, this is what Jesus will do. And Christians believe in similar things that when Jesus will come back, he will fight x, y and Zed okay. So that's what the Quran is referring to in chapter four verse 159, that none of the People of the Book will be left
unless they will believe in Him before his death problem Oh, he okay. And on the Day of Judgment, he will be a witness upon them. Okay. So we know that Jesus will come back and he will do what he will do, and then he will die. He will actually die the natural deaths. He will get married on earth, He will have a wife he will have he will have children and we have a support free for him. in Medina to be buried right next to the Messenger of Allah, Allah Allah is on the Prophet Muhammad. Did you know that?
That the future of Isaiah the level where Lisa Elisa will be buried with the Prophet sallallahu Sallam? So we have the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam buried in Medina and Masuda nabawi the house of Isaiah attached to it, by the way is that house was never part of much of the NaVi.
It was only after expansion that it was put inside. It's still a separate compound is still a separate compound, okay? That you cannot pray inside that compound. Did you know that you pray outside it, you do not pray inside that compound, because it was the house of God lomana. So when they expanded the mustard later on, it had to be you know, put inside.
So in that building in that compound, where the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam is buried, where we have
Baka robiola, Juan burried, and we have our Katamari.
That's the spot right next to them is Ali Salaam has a spot he will be buried there when he dies.
When he will come back, he will find the job and he will fight the forces of injustice and he will die having lived on earth for some time 40
this is about the job by the way. 40 right.
And even about a solace alarm that he will come back and he will live 40 years 40 days, it is not clear in the sources. Okay. The Sahaba rated the the least from the province of the lysosome wasn't sure whether it's 40 years or 40 days or 40 months, he said the number 40 about the sun is Allah when he will return and he will live on Earth. So what is the true message of Isa Salam when he was walking on the earth? Did he claim to be God? So there are two issues here.
True. We have talked about Isa who Isa is do you all understand her Isa Salamis. He's the son of Mary, we have talked about that point who Isa is. Now the second point is true message. What is a true message?
What is a true message? A true message is
a message that comes from God in the prophetic sense. When someone claims to be a prophet, and claims to have a true message. That message is not from himself, rather than message is from a law from God who sent him. Like in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter 18, verse 18, a prophet is foretold and many Muslims claim that this prophet is actually Mohammed salatu salam.
So musar Islam was told that a prophet like you will become will be given to these people
who will hear from Allah and deliver.
He will not say anything for himself.
And amazingly when he saw a salami speaking in the New Testament
To his hawara Yun, his companions, his unsolved his helpers, people who are standing by him or standing with him.
He tells them that when I go when I go and other will come after me calling comforter para Carlitos radiculitis pronounce it as you like, but he foretold the coming off another one after him.
And it's a person, it will be a person who will praise Him
who will glorify Him will confirm what was brought by him recently salah
he will hear from God and then deliver, He will not speak from his whims. And in sort of najem we are told about the progress on the law. So the law is something of all the relationship energy, there's a lot of men that are in wanna young tieguanyin
in who are in law, knew
that Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam does not speak from his desires, it doesn't give you what he wants to wants to give you.
It just, it doesn't come to you until you're I think you should know, it is revelation that comes upon him. And it gives you what he receives from Allah subhanaw taala. And when we read the Koran care for me,
we know that this book, in its current form, as we have it today, could not have possibly come from a mind in the seventh century, especially from the Arabian Peninsula. Because that was the most backward region of the world.
There are libraries in the Christian world.
You know, Alexandria,
from the time of Alexander the Great, whether he was the great or not a lot, great in the sense that he took a lot of land, you know, within a very short span of time. He started when he was 20. He died when he was 13. Sorry, 33
he was 33 years old when Alexander Iskander
died. He started from Macedonia, and he went off to Pakistan. Who so Pakistan here
who's in Pakistan,
only for Pakistan.
So where are you from Pakistan, in Pakistan, where?
Is there anyone from Jalen here?
nearby? Nearby if you're close enough? There's a city called JIRA. A lot of Pakistanis in Britain come from German by the way. There are three four places in Pakistan, where all the Pakistanis come from. There's a place called miracle it is in Kashmir. And there's another city called janome. Right? This is where Alexander's horse died in a battle against one of the Indian kings called horse. horse was one of the Indian kings who fought against Alexander. And this was the bloodiest battle Alexander fought against anyone so far. He was injured in the battle in salt, his horse, his favorite horse.
The citrus died in this place. So he made a city to commemorate
to commemorate his horse, he actually built a city at the spot called deceivers, which later on came to be known jail as gentlemen. The subsidiary of gentlemen is very old, by the way, okay. And that's where the battle was fought. The battle was fought. So Alexander,
you know, after he went around, he made many Alexandria's.
Maybe close to 10 cities he established in his own name, Alexandria, Alexandria, Alexandria. So one of them was Alexandria in Egypt is Cambodia, where the ptolemies one of his generals who made his capital because after Alexander died, his empire was split into four, four, okay, there was bataya of Aniston, Iran and some parts of that region or some parts of Pakistan. And there was the leukemia, which was the Middle East Iraq and Syria as a part of that. And then Macedonia and then Egypt, okay, Macedonia in some part of
Turkey. Okay. And then Egypt, follow me. So in Egypt from that time, you know, they are big libraries, there are a lot of books a lot of literature a lot of bragging activity taking place like the Jewish people as well at the time. They were into book writing book reading, you know, Jewish people, from the start from the beginning, were a booklet people the Arabs were an ami people.
Very intelligent, very sharp, very good in the poetry. If you listen to some of the pre Islamic poetry, you know one of the cassava cards Yeah, some of the pre Islamic poets, even the Messenger of Allah was amused to himself asked some of his companions to read our our face to him,
listening to the points, and then he says, I wish this person was a Muslim, many died
because he admired his poetry, the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam himself. People like our case. Have you heard of him?
You know, some of mala Salam on the couch.
Word? No, these are seven collections of poetry. seven men, and they were hanging on the car. They were known as Monique and Monique. Monique means hand something hanging. So they were hanging on the Kaaba. You know, the Arabs, they cherished this tradition, this poetry, but they were not our literary people in the so they didn't have libraries, didn't have universities, schools, colleges, academies, this was all happening in the Byzantine territory, or the Greek territory, the Christian territory or the Jewish
settings. Right. So among the Arabs, so Pamela, when you read the Koran, you know, it is revealed to a man in the Arabian Peninsula, who had no access to all any of these academies. When you read Do you think Japan a long long walk about this cannot come from a man
in the Arabian Peninsula?
coming back to East LA Salaam, what was his true message, the true message which comes from Allah, that's a true message. That's why I talked about the
true message is a message that comes from Allah subhanaw taala. It is a message that comes from God. So we know for sure as Muslims that acla salam spoke the truth, his message was true, and it was from God.
So what sources do we have on a Salah Salaam to know whether his message is true or not? We have, for example, the New Testament
that contains some of his teachings. And I firmly believe, as a Muslim, that there are elements of truth in the New Testament as it is today.
Although it is not in its pure form, I do not believe that Isa Salam spoke the Greek language I don't believe that.
Even Christians don't know what language is on Islam exactly spoke they don't know person on the planet can tell you as to what language is or Islam actually spoke. It is claimed that he spoke a dialect of Aramaic.
Would you call the Arabic language in Arabic?
army? Sorry, Armenia, Armenia. Okay. So it's Armenian language, which is spoken in parts of Syria to this day, there is still a Christian community in Syria.
That's the Spirit speaks Aramaic.
So there are three main Semitic languages, Arabic, Arabic, and Hebrew. These are sister languages. Any one of you who knows one of these languages can easily learn the others. You can easily learn Hebrew, you can easily learn Aramaic if you know the Arabic language and vice versa. Okay. So Arabic is the language recently Salaam allegedly spoke, but no one can be sure. Now what is the oldest form of
the Jesus tradition we have the oldest form the oldest form historically, we have it in Greek.
The oldest form we have of Jesus tradition is in Greek, and Jesus did not be Greek. So what we have our translations of his words, translations of words he might have used when he was walking the planet Earth, right. So, we do not have the exact word he used this mark, Is this clear? Is this much clear? We do not have the exact words Jesus spoke. Now I asked you a question does meaning
or is meaning lost?
Can you ever have
100% accurate translation
never have any document
you can never, ever
Have an accurate 100% accurate translation of any document in the history of humanity never.
So it is obvious, based upon that logic, that whatever Jesus woke was somehow changed by people who translated his words into Greek language. This is why I say elements of truth. I don't say the truth. I don't say that the New Testament contains the truth. It contains elements of truth we can see passages where he said Islam directly preached Islam. Islam as we know it, taught by the prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, and Prophet Muhammad could not have been copying a Salah Salaam because he had no means to do so. So he said Islam was teaching exactly Islam.
And what he said Islam was preaching was deliberately ignored by people who are known today as Christians, whether they are orthodox, whether they are Catholics or Protestants. This is the majority of the Christian world, the majority of Catholics. Then we have Protestants. Then we have orthodox, Russian, orthodox, Greek, orthodox, Syrian, orthodox, Egyptian orthodox, we have and then we have Ethiopian Orthodox Church, okay? All these churches put together these denominations put together they deliberately ignore things Jesus taught.
So what is the true message of Islam which is ignored? One of those points is the very central reason why prophets are sent by Allah subhanaw taala tauheed,
oneness, the ultimate oneness of Allah subhanaw taala. God Almighty. This is why he sent prophets to people who started to fall into paganism and polytheism.
So he said, Islam came.
What did he tell these people?
What did you say to them? Here, O Israel, the Lord our God is one God, the gospel of Mark
chapter 12, verse 29, the story goes as follows. And we believe this part in the Gospel of Mark is definitely for Eastern from Eastern Islam. Why Why do we believe that?
Is it because the New Testament says New Testament ism? No, because the Quran is telling me this part is from Israel. So the Quran is telling me that he says that this. So I believe that that part in the Gospel of Mark chapter 12, verse 29, and before I go further, I want to clarify that we as Muslims don't believe the entire Bible, or the biblical text is a lie, or is corrupt? No, we don't believe that. We have a balanced view, the view of Shepherd is largely a mirror of a lot a who studied the scriptures of the Jews and Christians thoroughly, even though he studied he done his study seven centuries ago, but we find his study to be very, very effective and very, very modern,
even to this day, when we study his works, you know, one of the works he wrote Scheffer, Islam is like encyclopedic in his in his vastness. The work is a job. Our job is to hate human bundela Dino mustache, okay? The word an authentic response to those who have changed the religion or have a solid salon. Okay, so this is a four volume work for volumes work, which is an Arabic, I don't think there's a full English translation, but there is an abridgment in English, you can find an English translation of parts of this work, okay. Then one of the students of Nakayama God also wrote a very powerful work, titled pediococcus, ARV RGB batil yehudah one nosara. Okay.
So this book is also there by a student. It's a it's a relatively small text, a broken image of he wrote, but shaftless Landrieu Jamia, he wrote a huge Compendium
on this topic. And his view was that the Bible is not entirely correct. The old of the New Testament, and it's not entirely authentic. We need an external source to judge the Bible. And that external source is the Quran. The Quran tells us what maybe you can take a moment to be authentic. So the karate chapter five in certain Maya tells us that
he signed his Salaam told his people.
So to Maya, from verse 72, to verse 75. If you read these four or five verses, you will see a solid slab is being addressed directly by a lot of data and
so one of the verses stays out of it.
will call mercy.
The Messiah said to them, Yara Bani Israel
or Buddha law to be one of all the people or the children of Israel. worship your Lord.
Worship Allah your Lord and my Lord.
Your Lord Robbie, one of Baku in Houma usually Kabila, anyone who has scribes partners with a lot.
Okay? No man usually good luck for can have a low quality in general. Then Allah has forbidden paradise for such a person, whoever ascribes partners, whoever does should, Allah will make paradise forbidden for such a person. Walmart is volume in our saw, and then there will be no helpers for the oppressors. Who are the oppressors, the ones who do [???], this is what he saw a Salam. According to the Quran, Koran alleges that he said these two boundaries, right? So when we go to the New Testament, the gospel of Mark chapter 12, verse 29, a Jewish man comes to a salon. He says Master, Master, or rabbi, or Imam, or Shay, you know, whatever words the use of the time, what is the most
important commandment, the first commandment? In other words, the most important, the first one is on Islam says,
Israel, yobbery. So I
Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one God, worship dialogue with all thy mind, with all thy heart with all thy soul. Worship Allah alone with all your dedication, in other words, so the Jewish man who heard this from Eastern Islam, he says, Master, you have spoken the truth. You have spoken the truth. This is the heart. This is the truth. There is no one else beside him Jani. There is no shriek to him. He's confirming, there is no Sherry Tomas de la la sharika. Okay, la sharika. There is no Sheree to Allah subhanaw taala you have spoken the truth. And then he saw his alarm response to him according to the gospel of Mark, by the way,
that you are close to the kingdom of God that your akiza is good. Your Akira you believe is good talking to the Jewish man who came in question. So Pamela, now if he said his love was God Himself walking on Earth, God in flesh, this was the time to tell the truth.
What is the truth? Eero Israel the Lord our God is one God. But now He manifests Himself in three.
God the Father, who you have been worshipping for the past 2000 years or whatever, since the time of Abraham. Yet God the Son, me is the son of Mary and the Holy Spirit you cannot see.
It didn't do that. Rizal Islam didn't do that. Rather, he confirmed the Jewish belief. He confirmed what was the Jewish belief until now?
What was the Jewish belief in God until that point? The Jews believed in one person, one God alone, and there were strict monotheists
How do we know this? again in the New Testament, the gospel of john
We are told that Eastern Islam he
is speaking to a crowd of Jews
a crowd of Jews
who come to stony
right and he tells them that I do not glorify myself nearly I am not bigging myself up. I am not beating myself up. It is Allah who sent me. It is him who gave me this glory of whom you say God the Father. It is the father who glorifies me the word his father, okay.
It is him who glorifies me, of whom you say is your God. Okay, so he's talking to the Jewish people confirming that they only believe in one God. And the same God is speaking in the Old Testament. In the book of Isaiah, chapter 44, verse six, he tells them that I am the first and an over.
I am the first I am the last and there is no one else beside me and he does no one else. There is only one God and that God the Jews knew as father
The term they use was
the father, the creating father. You know, they used interchangeably with Holic, the one who created God, they gave that role that name to Allah, the creator, because he's a fatherly figure, but this term was forbidden in Islam for us, because it was missed misunderstood by the people at the time. So we have two kinds of fathers, right. One was the Jewish conception of the father who was the creator of the creating God, right? The other conception of the Father in Divine the divine sense was the Greek mythical sense. You know, they're the Greeks and they weren't MIT. Were Apollo Zeus. iraklis. Do you know these are gods who are begetting children? Okay, so iraklis is divine in the
sense that his father is a God, you know, Greek
mythology. So this is why the Trinity came about in the first place, the treating doctor, doctor, the Trinity actually comes from Greek mythology. It was the Greek thought that corrupted the Jewish thought. And then, lo and behold, we have the doctrine of the Trinity. And it happened through stoicism, stoicism, or the traditional Greek philosophical tradition, which was adopted by some of the Jewish philosophers like phylo, a fellow who was contemporary of Eastern Islam, he was alive at the time of Salah, he was Jewish philosopher, and he put out many of these ideas. And then some later Christian theologians adopted these ideas coming from neoplatonism you know, Plato of Latin,
he was a philosopher they adopted a lot of these ideas from and then they justified the doctrine of the Trinity through this Greek tradition of philosophy.
So what happens now, he said, Islam never taught the Trinity clearly did not claim to be God. So when the Quran says rugby, were a buffoon, that's another claim, right? That's another claim that he said Islam says rugby was
my Lord and your Lord, lava for where is this the gospel of john, you go on chapter 20, verse 17. The Gospel of john, when he saw his alarm is ascending to the heavens. We know from the Quran is one to Allah, Allah raised him alive, raised him alive and put him into a state of unconsciousness. He said Islam was put into a state of unconsciousness, and he was taken out alive by law, to protect him against his enemies, right? So when he was ascending, according to the gospel of john chapter 20, verse 17, he speaks to one of his Sahaba
Mary Magdalene, not his mother, Mary, is another Mary called Mary Magdalene. He speaks to her that I ascend on to my father, to your father, to my Lord, and to your Lord is all there is all in the New Testament?
How did he worship?
When he was on planet Earth? How did he saw a Salam worship?
Did he worship like the Christians worship today? churches?
Have you seen it? Some of them have guitars, singing dancing? Yeah, you know, especially the, the afro American community in America, they have a very attractive way of doing this clapping and singing and jumping up and down all.
Imagine Eastern Islam turned up.
And it looked at them, you know, even in Africa. Well, I have seen this.
Yeah, the South Americans, they have their own way of doing it.
You go to India and Pakistan, the Christians have their own style of worshipping.
You come to Britain, you know, things are a bit more civilized.
How about worshiping Larissa, this?
Is my question. We have invented all kinds of ways to worship God in churches.
But how about worshipping? Like the man himself? How did he worship Allah?
And why was he worshiping Allah when he himself is a lot?
If he is Allah as you claim that he thought Islam is God,
why is he worshipping them? to someone else?
Why is he not worshiping himself?
And this is why the Quran in the next part,
in sort of Maya,
chapter five, verse 72, to 75, all these verses are there. Allah subhanaw taala states our relationship and reducing the recommendation
Lockard kufr en la Vina Paul in the law of war mercy of nohrian
laqad co founder de Nepal in the law Wilma supermario. Those who say that Jesus, the son of Mary is God have blanchfield they have committed disbelief
in that very God who said he saw Islam.
This is the worst accusation you can put against Isa Jesus Himself. Jesus would not have minded if you call him an adulterer, Allah.
Allah villa. If you call him an adulterer
he would not be as offended if you call him a thief. He called him a robber, you call him a murderer. He called him a drug seller, drug dealer.
He probably wouldn't have been offended that much that much. When you call him God.
Out of the villa, he would shiver. He started his alarm himself would shiver with anger, that how do you call me God, I have come to turn you towards God and you You have made me God.
So esala Islam, how did he worship in the Gospel of Matthew?
These are passages I'm giving you from the four gospels, the four gospels we have whatever survives, all of them, as I said, has elements of truth. It has other information as well, which is not trustworthy.
But it has definitely it has information that can be taken as true, because it doesn't contradict the Quran. So the Gospel of Matthew
chapter 20, Chapter 36, for no mistaking
Prophet ease on his alarm, when he is threatened by the Romans, when they are about to come and arrest him.
He is in a place called the Garden of Gethsemane in the Garden of Gethsemane.
And then he goes further, according to these verses, the Gospel of Matthew, is there, the garden of God, so many goes there it goes further. You see the chapter 26, Chapter 26, verse 36, I'll find it for you inshallah, in a second, if I'm not mistaken.
He goes further.
And he falls on his face. Are you listening carefully, he falls on his face.
And he prays to God, according to the very verse for the ministers, and how do you fall on your face? How do you fall on your face?
Those kids are doing even those kids know. So how do you force you follow your face in science? in prostration? Exactly, almost real quick. Show me a Christian Okay, lockdown. I'm talking about the mainstream. I'm talking about Catholics, Protestants and Orthodox Christians. They have invented all kinds of things crosses and idols and you know, statues of Mary and Jesus across the standing in front of the cross bar in front of but they don't prostrate like he saw Islam prostrate.
It is as if Allah has taken that sense away from them.
The contrary in the Bible is written in black and white, that he saw a salon, he went to the Garden of Gethsemane, he went further, he fell on his face in Florida, and he prayed to God, guess what muthana salaam prayed exactly like that in the Bible. Ibrahim Alayhi Salam print exactly like that in the Bible. And Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam taught his people to pray exactly like that. So we the Muslims, are actually true followers of the prophets and the tradition. So the prophets belong to one family, and those who do not believe in that belong to another family.
So if you belong to the family of Ibrahim, family Musab Isa and Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, then you are actually praying like them, you would pray like them, you would act like them, you would look like them, right? So whenever you see Isa, what picture comes to your mind? A man? Not a blue eyed blonde man. Okay, that's European creation. equal. Islam didn't come from Sweden Did he?
Was he Swedish? He saw somebody from Finland
or the Scottish.
He saw Islam was Middle Eastern.
And we amazingly the province or Sonam gave description of East LA Salaam, that this was a man with red complexion with curly hair. Okay.
He saw a Salaam red complexion with curly hair. What you see is a man you know, this is why we went
And when we were giving power to some of the Africans, we said,
Do you believe he saw a salon is God? Some of them said yes.
Some of them Yes. So I asked, so God is whiter.
So God is a white man. They like they never thought about this.
So where do you get this God from? When the white man came here, right?
This God was unknown to you before was it
is the white man when he came from Sweden from Norway, he gave you his conception of God. This is what God looks like God has blue eyes. He is blonde, and he's white.
So you better
you blacks. You cannot be like God stuck with Allah. That's the message. That's the message, you know, and why people?
We have the God, you don't God because God looks like us.
God doesn't look like you.
So Pamela, so some of them will lie just thinking that they came to Islam, just by the no arguments, no debates, just this point. They started thinking, wow, is God actually white?
God is not white. He's not even God. He's not even God. He never claimed to be God. So for this reason.
When you look at him, his conception, well, we find in Europe is not correct.
the next point I was going to mention was when he fell on his face, he prayed to God. This is how we Muslims pray. We are the only people on the planet now. The Muslims, Muslims are the only people on the planet who look like prophets, who imitate prophets who pray like prophets, prophets. Allah we don't believe there's a prophet after Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, right? But if you look at a Muslim man who is a proper practicing Muslim man, you will see him and whatever conception of Jesus you have a man with a long road with a beard with long hair.
Or marry Have you ever seen married a bikini? altavilla Have you? Have you ever seen maybe have you ever conceived marry in Thai breasts, although some people try to mock a salad Salaam and his mother out of the village, Mr. Lula, these people will face a lot of judgment. Or maybe whenever she's presented whenever she's shown, she's a hijab.
He's dressed like a Muslim woman.
So we easer Islam is true message was exactly Islam. He prayed like Muslims, how did he create his companions, when he entered upon them?
A Salam aleykum.
He said to them as salaam alaikum salam, o Alaikum. In Hebrew, right? Peace be upon you all is in the Bible. These words are there in the New Testament. How many Christians do you know the planet that greet each other like that?
How many Christians greet each other like that?
It's the Muslims. We are true Christians. We are two Christians in the sense that we follow the Christ, the Messiah, the mercy, the mercy and His teachings. His teaching the word God is one we follow that he prayed like Muslims, we follow him in his prayer. We pray like he said, Islam, we greet like him, okay. And we follow the law of Allah as he himself commanded to follow the law of Allah, Allah. So did he tell
us that a prophet will come after him? Yes, even in the Gospel of john as we find it today. Yeah, there are verses where Jesus is claimed, or allegedly is taught to have said that there will be someone after me who will come and do certain things. And when we look at the profit and loss alone, he did exactly that. He will praise me. The Messenger of Allah Azza wa sallam praised Isa Salaam, more than anyone else in the history of humanity. We, the Muslims, almost 2 billion people on the planet, we give honor to Isa this alarm more than others do more than others do.
Right? But we don't celebrate Christmas.
Why? Because we believe Christmas
is a false attribution to any solid Salah esala Islam, firstly, and most importantly, wasn't born on the 25th of December. He will not born in winter, according to the Bible, as well as the Quran. Both traditions.
the point that he said Islam could not have been born in winter. He was definitely
born between spring
and summer, yes, with from, let's say from March to September, because that's when shepherds are out in the fields. So when he said Islam was born, according to the New Testament shepherds were shepherds were out in the fields.
Have you ever seen shepherds out in the field when it's snowing?
So what happens on jingle
bell, jingle bell jingle all the way? What happens in that weather?
Yeah, exactly. This all is snow, right? Snow is snow is equated to Christmas in many ways. Yeah. This is why Father Christmas. That's a new phenomenon. Yeah, it used to be green. By the way coke. Coca Cola made it red. Did you know that?
Did you actually know that? No.
Father Christmas was green.
He was green until the 60s or 70s. I think I don't remember the time. But Coca Cola made him red. He adopted the Coca Cola color is not a joke. This is a series of seriously. Okay. So, questions, questions afterwards? questions after after? After I finish I'm finishing now. Okay, so Christmas isn't the issue here? Right. Was he born on the 25th of December? No, he was not. He was definitely not born in winter. Definitely according to the sources we have. Okay, so where did the 25th of December come from? Constantine the Great. The Roman emperor was a worshipper of the Sun God, the son God, son. Okay, Sol Invictus. In Latin. Sol. Invictus was Constantine's God before he became
So they used to celebrate a feast. They read for that pagan god, Sol Invictus was on the 25th of December.
And the Christians used to celebrate the feast of epiphany. On the first of January until the fourth century, this was the case. To this day, some Christians still continue to do that tradition, they can continue to uphold that tradition, which is ancient, actually, that they used to celebrate a feast. It was called the feast of epiphany on the first of January, okay. And it wasn't because Jesus was born the first of January, it was something else it had another significance. There is a scorer called Oscar Coleman. Oscar Coleman has written an article on this very point.
Whether Christmas is something Christian in the region. No, it's not. It's evidently pagan in origin. Because Constantine, you know, was celebrating that day. So when he became Christian, to join the feast of epiphany on the first of January, and the pagan festival of Sol Invictus, they joined both days and they said, Okay, now we will celebrate Jesus on the 25th of December, and we will call it Christmas. This is your Christmas.
So I want to give power to someone if someone says Merry Christmas is okay, I don't celebrate Christmas. There's a why, you know, then start explaining to them why because historically and this is the case, you know, but do your studies before you, you know, go and do some homework on the net, go and study some article before you start to give power to people. People will question you. And then if you don't know the answers, then you look more stupid, right? Okay, so so we give power in an informed way. We don't touch topics we have no knowledge of right. So you should be able to answer questions when someone is questioning you. So the real message of Esau Islam is to follow
Allah and His messengers. That's the true message of Islam. That's what he taught. Allah alone deserves to be worshipped, follow the prophets of Allah and he never claimed to be the last prophet of Allah. He never said I'm the last prophet, he said, but there is one coming after me. And that is Mohammed salatu salam. And the Quran alludes to that point that he said Islam foretold the coming off a Prophet and his name is Fatima is smooth. Ahmed, okay that Ahmed the praised one of the Paraclete automatic lighters, who however you want to pronounce the Greek word in the New Testament, that's how much
I end my talk on this point, and inshallah I will take questions from now on. Thank you so much for listening.
Okay, I have two questions. The first one is some people they say, there is no verse in the New Testament, clearly saying, to worship me with God and this only those in the Gospel of john
They've been actually proved by
people of manuscripts they've been added, like in gospel of john. Second one is some people they say that his early followers, like James who don't know some people they claim is his cousin of some, there used to be, go to the synagogue temple and they used to follow the Sharia of Musa what is the Euro search? Okay, that's that's a very, very, very important point which I didn't address in my talk. The significance of the how volume of a Salah Salaam, the companions, the close companions of a solid salam, Who were they? And do we have anything from them? And what did they actually do? How did the worship? Did they worship like the Christians do today? Or they had a different way? This is
a very, very pertinent question. And the answer to that question is that we do not know the full picture for certain because their teachings are not found, unfortunately, we have writings of people who had no direct connection with each other Salaam,
Matthew, Mark, Luke, and john, these four gospels are attributed to these people by a man called copyist. Not all of them.
Not all of them, not all the he mentioned, he mentioned two
gospels in particular,
that they were written by these people, okay, his name was Papyrus of hierapolis. In three talks about the Gospel of Matthew talks about the Gospel of Matthew, and he claims that the Matthew the Gospel of Matthew was actually written in Hebrew.
But these are anonymous documents. Now, this is the prop this is the problem module. They are written by people who are known. And the first time in history names are attributed to them by a man who lived in the early second century, his name was Papyrus of hierapolis. And who tells us that puppy said that a man from the fourth century known as Eusebius, okay, so the Christian tradition, when it comes to attributing names and persons to gospel is a very, very weak, unfortunately, it's very weak, not that we are happy with that fact, we would like to know more, we want to know more so that we can get to the truth. Right? So what happened to people or James? What happened to people
like Peter? What happened when we know stories about them? But do we know the details? Do we have the teachings? No, we have nothing from James.
As far as authenticity is concerned, we have an Epistle of James in the New Testament, a letter of James okay. But even that was challenged by Christians themselves. The Christian scholars themselves, they claimed that it is a dubious document, it is not trustworthy. And one of them, the more who One of them was Martin Luther, you know, Martin Luther, the reformer from Germany, he actually argued that the Epistle of James should be thrown out of the of the New Testament.
Or the book of Jude shouldn't be thrown out of the New Testament, because it doesn't fit our standard. Basically, Martin Luther as late as the 16th century, is challenging the book of James. So what happened to James who was a companion of Isa Salaam.
What we know historically from him, was that he continued to worship in the temple, the Temple of Jerusalem, which is actually much of the Luxor temple built by soleimani, Salah. He continued to worship and that, like Jesus had taught him and because he believed in Jesus, he was persecuted, and he was killed by the temple authorities. The temple authorities, the Jewish authorities, they arrested him and threw him off the walls of the temple. The walls, because temple was not destroyed to them. The temple was destroyed in the year 70 ce II by Titus, by a Roman general called Titus. He destroyed the tempo the second time, the first time it was destroyed in the sixth century BC, okay.
The year was 587 bc Baltasar was one of the Babylonian kings, or Nebuchadnezzar who had attacked Jerusalem and he destroyed the temple. The second time Temple was destroyed, never never to be built. Again. It hasn't been built till this day, it was in the 70s he by a Roman general called Titus.
But in the time of James, the temple was still there. Okay, so they took him on the walls of the temple and the trim off, they killed him like that and he was a companion of Isa Salah.
Who was the leader of the congregation the Jamal. He was the first Khalifa a walker. If you want to do a comparison yet, after he saw a Salaam disappeared, James took the place of a walker. He was the first successor. He said Islam, official successor, accepted by the rest of the companions of Islam. Come in between comes along Paul.
And Paul, you know, Paul, Paul was an imposter, according to most Jewish believers of Eastern Islam, because you know, so they were Jewish people who actually believed initially, Salam JS was one of them, right? There were others. Most of his followers, actually all his followers were Jewish, and his primary followers were Jewish, because he never preached to Romans. This was another point in the Quran and the Bible confirm the Quran what is the Quran tell us who was Isa sent to Elisa
for animating this specific image, this point that he said Islam was sent to Berlin, Israel, what is the gospel? What is the Gospel of Matthew tell us?
The Gospel of Matthew chapter 15, verse 24, inside Islam, he states that I was not sent to anyone, but to the lost sheep of the house of Israel. Then he tells his companions, his companions, his own companion, Sahaba is to have a go you're not into the house of Gentile, rather go into the house of Israelites because that those are the people have been sent to a loved one. He never said to go, he never asked his companions to go to Romans and the Greeks and the
Paul comes along and he goes, No, I'm gonna go to everyone. And then he tells the Romans and the Greeks eat pig. You don't have to circumcise you know, live the way you want. Just love Jesus. Like there are some people who claim today just love Olive. Olive and you will have German. Yeah. Love olive oil. Yeah, and you will have salvation there are people of all law 100 people like this today. All you have to do you can go have dinner drain,
partying all night. Sleep cocaine
ganja, just love have a have you know have a law and lock it with early return on it and love Allah, Allah and inshallah you will have Jana because you are one of the lovers of Allah bait, you are going to lower the olive and call it and you will have gentlemen, there are people this like that there are Christians who believe that today they call it Grace, Grace is that you believe in the sacrifice of Allah that He was crucified for your sins on the cross, you will have salvation.
You will have salvation. Okay, so James, and other companions are easily Salaam. Firstly, we have nothing from them.
Even if it was there, it was systematically removed by the Catholic Church later on. You know, in the first three centuries, a lot of documents were destroyed. Even if something survived. It was completely guilty. We have your documents that are not to be found in the New Testament Yani there is a document called unknown gospel, the unknown gospel, Jani Injeel module
a module egeria unknown gospel of Israel Islam, it's a very small fragment of a pirate. You know, papaya, papaya is an ancient document, you know, there used to write who's been to Egypt,
on the river Nile, you know, you see these pilot plants, asking them in Uganda because river Nile begins from Uganda, you know, they're from Uganda, these plants. So the pilot plant they used to press it and it's to make paper out of it. That's the ancient form of paper. They used to use two materials, parchment, which was leather, very expensive, pilot was affordable. So they found a pirate document from the second century C is called unknown gospel. It has a story of Eastern Islam, which is not to be found anywhere else. What's the story that Eastern Islam on river Jordan? You know, river Jordan
River over here. This is why this country Jordans called Jordan Yeah, because the river and he said Islam was around this area, right. So he took water from river Jordan, he said Islam, and he poured water on the back. on surface, not inside the river. He took water from the river, and he poured it on sand on the side. And when water touched the ground, a plant or tree came out. It was a miracle of East la sala Okay, this story is there. And it's very old from the second century on the document because the carbon data document, but it's not to be found anywhere in the Gospel. It may be true, it may not be to allow all of you maybe for maybe Islam did a miracle like that. Someone noted it
and documented it. So we have so many writings, so many things from the companions of Islam they might have
survived in the second or third century, but they were later on destroyed systematically by the Catholic Church. Any document that did not agree with the standard version of the books accepted by the church were destroyed, systematically destroyed. That's why we find books here and they're buried in the sand. You know, they found this big collection of books in Egypt, called the Nag Hammadi collection. And they found some old documents, which are not in the four Gospels. One of them was the Gospel of Thomas, there was a companion of Esau Islam called Thomas, and it is his gospel and his tradition, and what is it? What is Gospel of Thomas 114 114 sayings of excellence and
some of them are not authentic. Some of them young people think oh, there may be things made up by other groups and you know, like as an article, even after the Prophet sallallahu Sallam passed away in the second century, third century, weidu Kingdom on the scene came up with a system of
elbow Rajab to protect the tradition of Islam yet likewise, there was another guy in the time of, you know, the companions of Isa Islam or later on their strategy to attribute things to Eastern Islam, and they started to document them. So a lot of these ideas are erroneous, okay. But these companions of Eastern Islam, what we know of them from whatever is available, is that they did not follow the Christianity we know today. They were not trinitarians number one. Number two, they did not believe Isa was God. Elisa laughs they did not believe that the worship continued to worship at the temple, ie they remained the Jews practicing Jews. He said Islam taught them how to worship
whatever he said Islam taught them, they continued to worship it, and then they were killed off by the Jewish authorities. One of them was James, and we have this from
a testimony of a man called hegazy plus hegazy. Plus is the one who narrated the story of James that he was thrown off the temple wall and killed. So how our universe is or Islam were, when Quran says they were victorious, they will victorious against the enemies because they did not submit to them. You know, when,
when they were caught and captured and tortured, they did not surrender. They did not submit they believed that he saw Islam and died in that state. We believe Shahada martyrdom is actually victory. Yes. We know Quran is being written straight away.
As I read it was 300 years upset? Or
is it the New Testament II mean, the wording of the Bible is the Word of Allah subhanaw taala was the meaning of
the New Testament, the New Testament, the Old Testament is a completely different story to the New Testament, the New Testament, as we know it today, the earliest writings, the earliest form we have is at least 100 years after Easter, so at least, so the earliest fragment, we have an the earliest example of one of the books of the New Testament is from the Gospel of john. And it is a small part of chapter 18. It is as big as this
is a fragment of a pirate. This document is the gospel of john chapter 18. A small part of it, and it's been dated to between 125 ce 250 C. Okay, so that's nearly about essentially after al Islam is called p 52. is called p 52.
is not your tax document. Why is it called p 47? p 46.
p 46. Yeah, no, it's got nothing to do with that. Okay. It's the name of the manuscript p 52. is in
is in Manchester. Next time you go to Manchester is in a library called john Riley in library, you can actually go and see it the oldest
extent, example of
a book phone or a text from the Bible from the New Testament. The Old Testament is a different story. It's a completely different story. So we have the earliest example from 100 years after he saw Islam nothing before that,
which is in Greek, meaning the original one is no No, no nothing. We have nothing for a solid Salaam nothing original, nothing in his language. So be very certain about this have no doubt that we have nothing from an SRS alarm in his language. What we have is in Greek, and Isa Islam did not speak Greek. It did not speak the Greek language. Yes.
The question is connected to what you what you just said and what you said before that he didn't speak Greek. But the documents are in Greek and you mentioned before that
it couldn't have been translated 100
percent on translation could not be 100%. Yes. Why? Why is that? Because translation never represents the reality of the language. Okay, certain things in a language can never be rendered into another language. Take the Quran as an example. There are certain parts of the Quran. You know, this is why you see so much variation in different translations pick up any English translation of the Quran, it will be different to the other one. Okay, pick up the international or the normal Koran or the you know, you know, Abdullah Yusuf Ali or getting picked on Hamas or whichever. Okay. Yeah, they all there are always variations. They all all differ. The reason I asked is because, you
know, the message of Salvation Army's Yeah, and it's not in his language is in Arabic language yet. But we know that this is the true message of Islam, not just
none of the spoke the Arabic language, but when it comes to the poor as we know it is 100%. And Allah says that this is what he said. And this is what he said, but it is not in Aramaic, or EDS, because, as you see, the reason why we believe it in Arabic, is because a lot of real doctor are in Arabic. So it is a lot telling us what a star Messiah Brian said in the respective times. So because Allah is telling us that we believe it, okay? Otherwise, if you came to me and told me in the Punjabi language that he saw Islam said this, I wouldn't believe you. Sorry, I was maybe I would believe your integrity. But I wouldn't believe that. He said that, okay. Or something close to that.
So when Allah tells us follow mercy, or call him a car, but he's right over the line of B, what a Baku I believe that whatever language is a spoke. He said this. He didn't say
he didn't say in Arabic, nada. Okay. But he said this, this is a this is a message he gave to his people, that all the people of Israel worship one God, my God and your God, simple, my Lord, you're my Lord and your Lord. So it Allah is telling us in Arabic, that this is what he said. And we believe it for that reason. Okay. Allah does not have to give us Aramaic translation or the exact Aramaic words in the Quran because the Quran has been made Arabic so people can learn. Okay, in Nigeria, Allah Khurana Quran, Allah via
La La lu.
lu, is that the verse?
Okay, so Allah has revealed the Quran in Arabic language so that you have internet so that you can understand. So?
Yes, exactly. It's a lot of translating the words. Yes. That's the point. It is Allah who is translating the words of Isa Salaam maybe clarify that? Yeah. Yeah. Based on this,
isn't it? Isn't it possible to translate the message? I mean, our problem with the New Testament is not the message. The message is corrupted. It has nothing to nothing much to do with the translation per se. But it is just messages corrupted altogether. I mean, they could have translated into Greek or even English or whatever, we believe that Yeah, we believe the message is there. It is not there it is pure form. That's what we say. The message is there. It's not there in the in the pill form. But because when humans translate, it is natural for them to add glosses from themselves, right? We've had this phenomenon all over the place, where a lot of translates, he doesn't have glosses
thus for example, that's the difference. So when I was giving us a translation of a cell islamize words or muscle Islam word whatever language he spoke, or Ibrahim Ali Salam Yeah, when I'm not telling a story, you know, Al Islam did know and Islam speak.
Arabic No, Allah has given us a translation of his words. So Allah does not add glosses, but with humans, we are always in danger of plus humans have limited knowledge, limited experience limited.
How can say
humans are limited by a number of scopes, okay. So we will always translate within our own capacity. Okay. Your knowledge goes only so much. Right. So when this is why when Modi or when, you know, Muhammad Asad or when people like you know, picked on
Translated every one you can see individuals speaking in the translation of the Quran online, pick up any translation of the Quran in English or do or in any other language, you will see the individual that person was translating the Quran, you will see his experience talking about his life experience his his,
you know, view on the language for example. Yeah, so this is why, you know, Abdullah Yusuf Ali, when you will read his translation, you will see that he has certain views on certain verses to him. bloquer main was Alexander the Great, you know, did you know that
was Alexander the Great to him which is not true.
