and my dear brothers and sisters.
I have just to read to you
a verse from the Holy Quran
from Surah Aha.
That is chapter 46. Verse number 10.
Not sutra. Actually, this verse
gives me the cue for this evening's talk.
The subject, what the Bible says about Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam is in actual fact a commentary of this verse.
Now how can you find this verse in the Quran? If you have a Buddha Koran at home?
How will you find this? Because it is very essential that we Muslims get acquainted with Allah, Allah with the book of God
is no use just listening to lectures and going away, feeling entertained, elated, elevated, we must have that kind of yearning to go and check up firsthand. Verify firsthand what the speaker for tonight or any other speaker. He makes mention of equity.
vers go and check them up. And by checking up your strength and move in your conviction about what the man has said, if it is true, and if not, you can take exception, you can pull him up.
Now, this surah in this Quran here, in the Arabic Quran, it's very difficult for us to find,
because the references are not so easily available. But in a translation like this one I'm holding in my hand by Abdullah Yusuf Ali.
In this translation at the end, there is a very comprehensive index. And if you open the index, and under a look for a half a h, QF a half, and you will see there it says 46 chapter 46. So you open 46 and I said, verse number 10, you forget verse number 10. And you read it for yourself. Now every Muslim,
I'm appealing to every Muslim, that he must have this Quran at all.
this book, here, Allah, Allah,
it is so cheap, it's hard to believe that you can buy today
a book of about 2000 pages, that is this volume here for seven rounds 50 cents, there is not another book on earth an encyclopedia of 2000 pages you can buy today for 750 and if you like to join forces with another brother of yours or if you want to give to somebody to for 10 grands, five grands each, they're available in the fire before you part and at every meeting inshallah as long as I'm around, they will be available 750 each, or two for 10 rounds.
the meaning of the words I have read,
so school, Allah has Bharata is telling our nebia Karim sallallahu Sallam in the first instance. And through him he's telling us that we must also do the same cool mean say, Tell them or item in common? Can I mean in the law?
Do you see? Can't you see whether this book is from Allah
wakatobi and yet to disbelieve in it, this is now addressed to the unbeliever.
Can't you see in other words, if you look at this book, if you read this book, with an open mind, you will be able to recognize that this is from your Lord and cherish your Creator.
It's self appealing self proving it proves itself. So Allah tala is reasoning with his creatures with the unbeliever Can't you see whether this book is from Allah wa kafir can be and yet to disbelieve in it was shahida Shah had the memory
and a witness from among the children of Israel bore witness or one like him
for our mana, and they believed was stuck Barton but you are puffed up with pride in Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah and Allah will not guide the unjust.
Chapter 46 verse 10.
Now it speaks about if we're shahida Shah, he didn't mean Bani Israel ultimately, and a witness from among the children of Israel, here referring to
the Holy Prophet Moses, that he bore witness of one like him.
And from that we get the title of this evening's talk, what the Bible says about Mohammed Salah some
people want to know that how does it come about that you as a Muslim? are now expounding prophecies from the Christian Bible?
How did it come about this sort of a situation because it's something's unnatural for a Muslim to be expounding his case from the opposition's book.
Now, the way it happened is this, that I didn't go into a university or a dark room to learn the science, the science of comparative religion.
I was forced into a situation
where as a young man when I left school, I happened to be working in a country shop at a place called Adams mission station.
Mission station. Adams is an American board mission. secular education as well as missionaries were being trained and I was working in a shop
selling sugar and salt, flour, handkerchiefs over the counter. And the missionaries were getting training at that college and American college missionary college. They were harassing the Muslim young men serving behind the counter. We're all young men just left school.
And they came to tell us
attacking as whatever they learn. They use us as a punching bag for practicing purposes. They said, you know, Muhammad had so many wives, his spirit, his religion at the point of the sword, he copied his book The Quran from the Jews and the Christians and on and on.
And they may made life so miserable for me. I felt like leaving the job and running away. But jobs are hard to get those days.
The only thing that was left was either fight back or run away. And you can't fight back without weapons. You know, there's knowledge, if you have no knowledge, you can defend yourself.
And by the mercy of God, I came across a book
in the my boss's warehouse, and OLAP, data room eaten book full of mildew.
And the title of the book was, is Harold Hawk, which means the truth revealed.
And when I read this, he dealt with the problems of the Muslims in India, when the British conquered India, they realize that at any time, anybody will give them trouble into the Muslims. Because power was wrenched out of the hands, they have tasted Dominion power. And once you taste that, you feel like you need to get it back again. The Hindus, the overwhelming majority of the people of India, they within as docile as the cows that they were worshipping, there was no fear from the quarter, but they feed the Muslims. So they started pouring in the missionaries into India, like frogs in the rainy season, change the Muslims and turn them to turn teach them to turn the other cheek, and you
can read them for 1000 years.
This was the theme of the book and how we were to defend ourselves against the Christian missionary attacks.
So I read the book.
And as a result of that, I started reasoning with these students. And when I went to Durban it became a hobby with me attending religious lectures on comparative religion on biblical prophecies. And one of the lectures which could be really into this field actively was one delivered by a certain Reverend heighten.
I didn't know at that time that this Reverend heighten was a Seventh Day Adventist.
He was dealing with biblical prophecies, you know, prophecies from the Bible. And that evening that I was attending his lecture, he was expounding a prophecy from the book of Revelation.
In the Christian Bible, the last book is called the book of Revelation. The Roman Catholics, they call it the apocalypse.
Apocalypse, you know, there's some TV program video program going on in America. Apocalypse Now means parama Doomsday now in an atom bomb attack, Apocalypse, that is the title of the last book, according to the Roman Catholics, and the Protestants they call it, Book of Revelation. In chapter 13, verse 18, there is a prophecy about a beast, this means an animal.
And the number of the beast is 666. People six.
And this reverent, went on to expand that evening.
That that beast mentioned in the book is the Pope, of the Roman Catholics. I didn't know that this man was a Seventh Day Adventist. I was just wondering, so how can you talk about, you know, a man respected by millions of people, you know, as a great man, Pope means father, as a father, religious father, and this man was playing to prove that he was the beast mentioned in the book of Revelation. And the way he went in proved his case was,
instead you see, this number 666.
If you take the Latin for the Vicar of Christ, which means the representative of Jesus Christ, the Vicar of Christ in Latin, if you give numerical values to these letters, it comes to 666.
So he proved his case, to his audience, that that beast was the Pope, the latest of the Christians have come out with is that they say that this is Dr. Kissinger.
Now, how does that come about? You know, they're very ingenious. These missionaries are so ingenious. You know, you Mother, how did they get in harm? Or you know, His Holy Ghost coming and telling them what happened? How did they discover these things?
So he says, You see, now this beast, the number of the beast is 666. So we must now give numerical values to our alphabet abcdefg h, i, j. k, you give them
numerical value is a six, b, c
18, d 2430, and so on. You read them by sixes, every letter of the alphabet and you write down Dr. Kissinger, and you get those numerical values and you get 666. So, it is Dr. Kissinger and so on. But now look, it is not for us to enter in this type of controversies, not for us keep out of it.
I'm just trying to show you how ingenious the Christians are in trying to prove their cases.
But then, I heard other lectures and added a new feature on the subject of biblical prophecies. And I was told that this book, the Bible speaks about God and Magog
Soviet Russia, you know, the devilish kingdom. He speaks about Israel coming into being he speaks about the Pope. I said, he speaks about so many things. Then what does this book say about Muhammad Salah that
crept up in my mind and the question I kept on starting asking people have questions as to what they learned man of Christianity. What does the Bible say about Muhammad? If he speaks about Israel speaks about Russia, he speaks about the Pope. Surely this book must have something to say about Muhammad, a man who made it possible at that time, it's 1000 million Muslims today. But at that time, we were 700 million as a man who made it possible for 700 million people to believe in Jesus and to honor his mother Mary, to defend her against the calumnies of of her enemies. Surely, this book must have something to say about such a man.
So I went on my search research, wanting to find out what does this book say about Muhammad at that time, I didn't know this Quranic verse, but I went on a search. And it was about the time when I was to go to the Transvaal and in the trans while like most of you, my brothers and sisters, you know, you are most of you are bilingual. You speak English, as good as Africans, most probably Africans is the home language, but your English is as good as as good as your African on the average, you are more bilingual than most Africans.
You people, the colored as well as the Malay, you have more bilinguals speaking both languages equally well compared to the average African.
That is my discovery.
So while going to the transfer they to my people, even the Indian Muslim, they also speak Afrikaans. So I was going on a lecture tours, I said, Look, let me try and practice a bit of Afrikaans.
And to do that there was nobody around me to speak Afrikaans. So I started looking in our telephone directory in Durban, for the DRC, the Dutch Reformed churches. And I found a church DRC iPhone, as a look Domini. That's what you call a priest. So look Domini. I'm interested in religion. And I'd like to come along and have an exchange
of views sharing God's word. So you know, that the person on the other side he can sense it that this person who's speaking to him now mind what meticulous English we speak, he can sense it from our tone Indonesian that this guy is an Indian. As much as you when you come to Durban and you speak to me English, I can make out your capetonian USA. You and the way you speak is something different from the way we speak is same English, same language, but even then, there's something in your tone that tells us You are a capetonian
you don't realize that but we do as much as you realize that this has come from
so the guy senses that this guy's an Indian so sorry, he's very busy. No time. Number two, sorry, very busy. No time. Number three, sorry. Number 45678. I was persistent. I had the patience and the perseverance. I wanted to practice a bit of Africans, so I must find a customer.
So the number 13 was my lucky number.
Usually the unlucky number, you know, for Westerner 13 is a very unlucky number. You know that? on our areas. There is no rule number 13 on any of our planes, if you don't know next time you travel on the plane, check up this part 14 1516 there's no 13 rule in any South African airplanes.
You didn't know that. Yes, there so superstitions
blocks of flats. They have 1-234-567-8910 1112 1415, Huawei, this new 1312 a
13 is an unlucky number and final 13 is double bye
So number two thing happened to be my lucky number. And according to appointment, appointed time, a Saturday afternoon, I went to meet this do mini fan here then of the DRC.
He met me on the veranda.
And he sought permission if I didn't mind, he said, to have his father in law alone in the discussion. Not at all. So he took me into his library. And I began with a question.
I said, Do you mean
what does the Bible say about mama?
And without any hesitation, he said nothing.
I said, why nothing?
That's not the Bible speak about the rise of Soviet Russia. He said yes. about the coming into being of the State of Israel. He said, Yes. And about the Pope. The Beast six, six is a yes. Then I said, what does it say what?
He says nothing. So surely it must have something to say about this mighty messenger of God, who made it possible for 700 million people to believe in Jesus Christ.
So the African the his father in law from the Free State, he said, You know, my boy, Ivan, who might be adenosine said, you know, my boy, is that I have been reading the Bible for the past 50 years. If there was any mention about Mohammed, I would have known it.
So I said, Are there not hundreds of prophecies in the Old Testament regarding the coming of Jesus Christ?
So the Dumanis had not 100 but 1000s.
So look, I'm not here to dispute a single one of those 1000 that you're talking about.
But can you show me one place out of the 1000 prophecies in the Old Testament about the coming of Christ, surely one place where it says that the name of Christ, Christ is a title is not a name.
When has an ISA was born, Jesus Christ, when he was born, he was not named Christ. He was named Jesus. According to the Bible, actually, he saw in Hebrew Isa in Arabic, he says in Afrikaans, that's nearer to Arabic, and Hebrew.
They have Latin as it by adding a J. But we won't go into that.
In the Gospel of St. Luke, we are told this is when he was eight days old, he was circumcised and named Jesus by the angel, when he was in his mother's womb, what was the name of Jesus? So the word Christ is a title is not a name, he was named Jesus, not Christ.
So the prophecies are about the coming of a Messiah, translated Christ. But I said, Is there a single place where he's mentioned by name, that the name of this Christ who's going to come? His name will be Jesus, that his mother's name will be married, his supposed father will be chosen the carpenter that will be born in the reign of Herod the king, in Bethlehem, and so on? Is there any such details? He says, No.
This is how do you know that those 1000 prophecies refer to Jesus?
He says, you see, you have to reason you have to deduce, you have to infer,
I said, what you're actually doing is you're adding two plus two, adding two and two together to get your answer. I said, Yes, you are reasoning. He said, Yes. So I said, Look, why should we do the very same thing about Mohammed? In 1000? prophecies, you don't find a single place where the man has mentioned by name, and you have to say those 1000 refers to Jesus without name?
Why do you expect me to show you in your Bible, Mohammed spelled out m u. s, u m? m Ed.
By the way, if asked me while you demand for me that
at that time, I didn't know.
My knowledge was limited. I didn't know that Mohammed is mentioned my name. What luck is there by name, but it is in the original.
You see in the Song of Solomon, in the Bible, in Hebrew,
chapter five, verse 16,
chapter five, verse 16, in Hebrew, that is supposed to be the original language of the Old Testament. This is what it reads, so hico, mamita, kin, we could look Muhammad in 2d with a banner Jerusalem.
in is a plural of respect in Hebrew. You take that out as Muhammad. Muhammad is a integral, but they translated it into English as altogether lovely.
That my beloved is altogether lovely. Now when you say altogether lovely, you can imagine that is Muhammad.
In Africans I was looking at the world is very difficult for me to pronounce. But I tell it's so funny. You know, the translation of that altogether lovely. That
Most of you, you can't even pronounce that Africans is so high above your heads.
You can never guess in 1000 years you keep on reading uttering that phrase, you will never know who's talking about Muhammad. But in the original, the word is Muhammad him. But I didn't know anything. So I said, you see, if we are reasoning about Christ, why shouldn't we reason about Mohammed says, No, that is quite fair. So as a please open Deuteronomy, chapter 18, verse 18, nine, the booklet that is given to you, when you go home, look at this verse, and master this verse. Because look, the days of the professionals are over. I'm telling you, it's not a professional job, you survived on the shelf, propagate Islam, why don't the amounts propagate Islam? Why does anybody
that do this know, each and every Muslim must get involved according to your capacity. And I can't imagine that people who are responding in such great numbers to these lectures, that you're not coming here to be entertained, you want to get some knowledge that you can use, and we are giving it to you in black and white, what I'm talking to you now it is in the book, you go home, look it up, write it on a piece of card, put it in your pocket, and memorize the verse, memorize it, once you memorize it, repeat it, repeat it, that every opportunity you get, practice it as the Christians are doing on you, you do the same, we must share they want to share the heaven with you. We are prepared
to share more than that with them, you know, our curry and rice as well as heaven on the other side.
They can only share Heaven, because they have nothing to give to you.
You know that he's not prepared to give you a cup of tea or pajamas or never. But you go to the Muslim zone, they come along and they eat our food. They eat our biani our samosa tea and they want to make mystery in our head. Now look for a change is about time that you start sharing something more than heaven. Heaven cost you nothing, but at least share something more than that to your sisters and your team.
So I'm asking you to please open Deuteronomy 1818
and when you opened it, I said look, I'm trying to learn it in Afrikaans and if I am I would like you to correct me if I'm wrong. You know, my pronunciation helped me. So saying I said what is written this profit cell EQ for halophytic eight Demeter fun Hello Bruce sewist is an Excel MS Word in some Mandalay and Hazel Allah say Alice, fat echo home field.
So this is very good. I thought I was murdering it. But he says is very good. Good, good try. So I'm asking, Who is that prophet in English
says I will raise them up a prophet from among the brethren like unto thee, and I will put my words in his mouth, and he shall speak unto them all that I shall command him.
To those of you who might want to listen to this in the Bible, from the Bible in Arabic,
since it's so beautiful, it's nice to know, because when you go among the Christian Arabs, I was thinking when I was young, I wanted to go to Lebanon before this problem started. I said, I want to go and speak to the Lebanese Christians, and how much nicer if I can quote them in their mother tongue.
Like the African or put him in his mother tongue, you are bilingual you must master this in both languages English and Afrikaans. If you can master another language, another dialect Go ahead. The Bibles are available in 2000 different languages.
endoscope, so I start learning that in Arabic, to go to Lebanon,
Turkey, Milan, IBM was a
was a local army for me
I wanted to talk to the Jews. So I learned it in Hebrew. Maybe
I can Mojave, I do it in a dozen different languages, because it opens up doors. Because if you can speak a man's mother tongue, his heart opens out to you is prepared to listen to you, even if you're murdering the language. As I was doing, I could have been murdering Africans, but he loved it. He loved to listen to me talk and all grown a person who knows nothing about Africans, and he's trying to rattle it off. So I'm asking, Who is this prophet? So he said, this is Jesus. But he doesn't say Jesus. He said, You see, prophecies are wood pictures of something that is going to happen in the future.
And when that thing actually comes to happen, you say this is the fulfillment of that what was said is now being completed, accomplished.
That is a prophecy. And this prophecy refers to Jesus. I said Why? I said, you see, it says suicide. Yay.
profits are a hell of a wreck a Demeter fun Hello? Suicide a is suicide a is likened to the like you like Moses. And Jesus is like Moses said How? He said, You see, Jesus was a Jew and Moses was a Jew. Yes.
So Jesus is like Moses. So you see Jesus was a prophet. And Moses was a prophet said yes. So this is a Jesus is like Moses.
Is it anything else? Is it No, this is what he can think of at the moment.
So I said, Look, if these are the only two standards of finding a candidate for that prophecy, then this prophecy will fit every Jewish prophet after Moses.
David, Solomon, Ezekiel, Elisha, Elijah Zechariah, Micah Mendham Zephaniah,
there are 17 different profits mentioned in the Old Testament. In the new john the baptist
said, why should not this prophecy,
you know, fit any one of those other prophets? And why to Jesus because they were all Jews, and they were all prophets. So why make Fisher one and follow the other? why Jesus and why not any one of that is
there was monster. So I said, you see, women?
I think that Jesus is not like Moses.
for three reasons. Number one, I said according to you know, mark my words, I said, according to you,
Jesus is a chord. said yes. You know, he's very happy because they believe that Jesus Christ is God incarnate. God Almighty coming down to a man
said, according to you, Jesus is God. But I said, Moses is not God. He said, Yes, as the devil. Jesus is not like Moses.
Number two, I said, according to you.
Jesus died for the sins of the world, said yes. But I said Moses didn't have anybody since. They said yes. I said, therefore Jesus is not like Moses. Number three. I said, according to you, Jesus went to hell for three days. Imagine they sent the god force to hell to go through three people. Three days he was in hell, after his crucifixion, his soul went into hell, Jana?
I said, according to you, look, we don't say that we can say that. That the prophet of God, we believe that all sinless and innocent man, Allah put him in the jungle, but
he said, I said, according to you, Jesus went to help three days. He said, Yes. But as Moses didn't have to go there, he said, Yes, as a devil Jesus is not like Moses.
And I could see beads of perspiration, it was a cold day,
beads of perspiration. And I felt, look, we all have our idiosyncrasies every nation has certain characteristics all of us you know the Indian Muslim have us in a certain way the Malay Muslim Indians in a certain way, we all have our characteristics.
The Africana has what is characteristic you see when you call him
he says my gun
not that because he was used to that is he look the gun the gun, so anytime you call the man, he's looking for his gun,
the British or the English man.
I think our our video man is a British, with apologies, see the British or when you call him, you know what he says, Let's have a roundtable conference.
Look, these are these are all we all have some funny funny, idiosyncrasies, characteristics we all of us.
So as you know before that happens, you know the men start looking for
a new meaning. As I said, you see women look, these what we are talking about a hypothetical thing.
These are not solid facts, hard facts, that little child, you know your child playing in the veranda, the child will not be able to understand what we are talking about, about the divinity of Christ, about his redeeming blood about him descending into Hades, hell, the child can understand what you're talking about. Let us talk about something basic,
solid, simple fact that even a little child can understand. So it was really happy. So in that case, I said number one.
had a father and a mother.
The Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam also had a father and a mother.
had only a mother. He had no human father. He was born miraculously. And the Bible says
The gospels in Matthew chapter one verse 18. It says before they came together who Joseph and Mary as husband and wife she was found with child by the Holy Ghost in Africans, the four that hella somehow pinhead is a stronger buffin. Ad Haley appears
as the desert right? He said yes.
As their own is Jesus nice was Moses nee Muhammad is was Moses that was practicing Africans as a day for Jesus is not like Moses, but Muhammad is like Moses.
as at Moses and Muhammad, were both born in the normal course of things a man and a woman coming together.
But Jesus was created by a special miracle.
As you know, in the Gospel of St. Luke chapter one, verse 35.
when the good news was given to Mary about the birth of a Holy Son, she says, How shall this thing be when I know not a man means physically sexually, I have no experience of a man How can I have a son?
So the answer that the angel gives her is, that the Holy Ghost shall come upon v, and the power of the Most High will overshadow v.
This is the right. We will deal with this in detail under the subject Christ in Islam, but for the moment, this is the point the point is that he was born miraculously, the Holy Quran also confirms in Surah Al Imran chapter three verse 47.
When the good news is given, she's a scholar at the American only one departure she said, Oh my Lord, how shall I have a son with me?
So the angel is made to say in reply, Karla pathetic, cuckoo, Masha say even so Allah creates what he was his aka Omron fine nama Kula who
said whenever he decrees a meta analysis, D and it is, as we believe that he was born miraculously, you believe that he was born miraculous day? Is that true? He said, Yes. That's the day for Jesus is not like Moses, but Muhammad is like Moses. Number three,
Moses and Muhammad, peace and blessings of God be upon all his prophets.
Moses and Mohammed, they both married and they beget children. But Jesus remained a bachelor all his life. Is it true?
Of course, the Mormons say Jesus, the two wives, Mary Magdalene and Martha were his wife, we will go into that. The bulk of Christian don't say Jesus was a bachelor all his life.
Is that true? CCDs. As is therefore, Jesus is not like Moses, but Muhammad is like Moses. Number four.
Moses and Muhammad we accepted as prophets acknowledged as prophets by the people in the lifetime.
Nude up, the Jews gave endless trouble to Moses, endless trouble, their moment in the wilderness.
And he was so provoked to sell Islam, that he addresses his own people. He says, Behold, a stiff neck people and arrogant people, you might people. He said, he had been rebellious against the Lord since the day I knew you. From the day I know you you are like this rebellious people against someone. These are the
you know the contributions of others new Cyrus and for his own people, endless
but before he died, his people as a whole, they accepted her that musala salam, as Rasulullah as the Messenger of Allah
sallallahu Sallam the Holy Prophet Muhammad also, his people also gave him English trouble, you know,
the Muslims had to make to his ears.
To ever senior, the early Muslim to
our idea Kareem sermon everybody has a believer that to make a
migration to Medina.
Even in Medina, they give no peace, but 100
they gave him no peace.
But before he died, his people as a whole. They accepted the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam as Rasulullah as a messenger of Allah. History, this history, Moses was accepted by his people, as a man of truth as a man of God, a prophet.
The Arabs also accepted the Holy Prophet Muhammad says Allah as a man of God as a true prophet of God as a whole.
But the Bible tells us
about Jesus in the Gospel of St. JOHN, chapter one, verse 11. It says he came unto
His own but his own received Him not. In Africans, he has a end upon and say here Mensa had honey and honey me. He came into his own but his own received Him not. I said is that true? He said yes. As Darren, he says nice was Moses nee, Mara Muhammad, this was Moses, I was practicing Africans.
I said Moses and Muhammad,
the prophets, as well as
a prophet is a man who receives divine inspiration to guide his people.
But he might not have the power of backing it up
to implement the laws that he receives, for example, like universalis Allah, he delivered his message. He couldn't implement it.
You know, his people went for abominations. Allah destroyed the people but universally Salaam couldn't do anything.
ruthless Allah, Eunice la sala, Marisela, all these were prophets of God, they delivered the messages, but they couldn't implement the laws, the Sharia, they can implement it, you have
no power to implement. So they will only profits, whatever they received, they deliver the message.
But musala salam was something more than that. He was a prophet as well as the King, not the title of a king, but a king. By that I mean, one who has the power of life and death over his people. Whether you call him a president, call him a dictator, call him an emperor, call him what you like. If a man has the power of life and death, a simple word we say he's the king. So Moses was such a man, he deceives driven inspiration. He delivered the message, and anybody broke the law. The adult and the adult is a stone them to death, and they will be stoned to death. They were told not to do any work on the Sabbath day, yo, sup Saturday, no work. Monday when picking up firewood. So a man
was found guilty of firewood. So they brought him along, and they stoned him to death for picking firewood.
That was the law. So he had the power of not only delivering the message but implementing the law
of a Holy Prophet Muhammad Salah sir, saying
he was not only a messenger of God, but he had the power of life and death of his people.
But Jesus Christ
when He came
when he came,
and he was confronted by the Romans, the Jews implicated him and he was brought for trial for treason.
That was the trial was for treason against the state, that this man is trying to pervert the nation trying to create turmoil
in the nation.
So Pontius Pilate, the Roman governor, questions Jesus.
Is his adult, the King of the Jews? Are you the king? So Jesus says, Thou says, that's what you say. So you said Am I a Jew? To say that, but when he was questioned, pressurize further, he says, My kingdom is not of this world. May Connie Craig is me from here, the world me.
If my kingdom was of this world, then my disciples would have taken up the sort of fight, which they didn't do. So my kingdom is not from him. Not from here, not an earthly kingdom. Mine is a spiritual kingdom, meaning I am a prophet of God, trying to guide people spiritually, not to shoot out or kill people, chopping off people's heads. No, that's not my job. I didn't come for that. So he says, My kingdom is not of this world. In other words, his isn't a spiritual kingdom. Moses had a spiritual as well as the material kingdom. The Prophet Muhammad, Salah also had a spiritual as well as the material kingdom, Jesus had only a spiritual kingdom. He was only a prophet. Is that true? So he
said, Yes, I said, therefore, Jesus is not like Moses, but Mohammed is like Moses.
Number six, Moses and Muhammad.
They brought new laws and new regulations for the people.
Before Moses, the Jews didn't have the 10 commandments. They didn't have a comprehensive law then you certain things about good and bad they knew about God Almighty, but they didn't have a law has it musallam gives them the 10 commandments. And he gives them the laws of ceremonial law of purity. What is power, what is Napa what is pure, what is impure, what to eat, what not to eat, and every little minutus detail
wish they didn't have before. New law, new regulation
the Anna's before Islam also had no law. They were an absolutely a barbaric people.
A people in nation that buried the daughters alive.
They married the stepmothers these Arabs before in the yemanja helia. The days of ignorance before Islam, drunkards, gamblers fratricidal was over little things they were fighting for decades. Given the master historian, in his decline and fall of the Roman Empire, he describes the situation beautifully, he says, The human brute, the animal in human form, the human group, almost without sense is poorly distinguished from the rest of the animal creation that the only thing that is differentiates in between the animal and me is the form. Oksana Queen, Allah has made you in the best of forms otherwise worse than enemies.
new laws, new regulations
from that, through Alaska lambda Quran, Allah Karim Salah Salam in 23 years of his prophetic life, he transformed them into an angel IQ people.
one of the greatest
thinkers of the past century,
he delivered a series of talks in England.
And among his hero, Prophet, he chosen to be a Kareem Salah Islam, not David, as his hero, Prophet, or Solomon or Moses or Jesus, he chose the Holy Prophet Muhammad as his hero prophet. And in paying a tribute. He says, to the Arab nation, it was a birth from darkness into light, this new revelation new message, it was
a birth from darkness into light. Arabia became first alive by means of it a poor Shepherd people roaming unnoticed in his desert since the creation of the world these videos nobody would give them a second look the human rubbish that's what they were Alexander the Great pass them by the pushers pass them by the Romans pass them by nobody was interested in this human rubbish.
Oil was gonna come out there, they didn't know.
They just pass them by. See, the unnoticed becomes good notable. The small has grown with great within one century afterwards, Arabia was at Granada, as in Spain, on one hand, and Adelphi on the other, cleansing in valorant. splendor and the light of genius, Arabia shines over a great section of the world. his belief is great life during the history of a nation becomes fruitful soul elevating great susun as it believes, is it not as it as pocket fallen One Spark on a world of a black unnoticeable sand, but Lou, the sand proves explosive powder, blazes heaven hi from Delhi to Canada. This is what the message did overnight indicates what the Roman Empire took 1000 years to
build. Within decades, they build an empire greater than that of Alexander the Great greater than that of Rome. What did it is this new revitalizing message the message of Islam? Did the job chain transform the nation?
new laws, new regulations.
Moses brings new laws, new regulations. The Holy Prophet Muhammad brings new laws, new regulation, Jesus Christ.
When he was confronted by the Jews, they were thinking that this man is being a new religion.
So Jesus assured them according to the Gospel of St. Matthews, chapter five, verse 17 1819, he says, Think not that I'm come to destroy the law of the profits. I am not to destroy but to fulfill his money. I think that if he can hit on the weight of the profit or the money, it can happen on the on me.
But to fulfill,
I said is the true that's what he told the people that he had brought no new laws, new regulations, he has come to fulfill the law.
Said Whosoever therefore shall break one of these least commandments, or shall teach men so shall be called the least in the kingdom of heaven. But whosoever shall teach and do shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven. He has come assuring the Jews with new new laws, new regulations, he's only come to confirm fulfill the previous revelation is that true?
said yes. As a day for Jesus is not like Moses, but Muhammad is like Moses.
I said Moses and Muhammad, they both died natural deaths.
But according to you as a Jesus
violently killed on the cross, according to you, is that true? He said, Yes. I said, Darren is Jesus nice was Moses nee Muhammad, this was Moses. Therefore, Jesus is not like Moses, but Mohammed is like Moses. Number eight. I said Moses and Muhammad they both live buried on Earth. But Jesus is resting in heaven. Is it true or very happy to say yes.
And every time he says yes is agree with you is an extra a million down meaning down is a privilege Allah has given you
It is you who choose the role of being a punching bag for them. It is you who chose the role of being a becoming a doormat for them. This is not the role that Allah has in store for you. He says
he's given you a theme that is the master overcome and supersede them all.
Colet everything, whether it be Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christian ism, communism, every Islam, Islam is destined to master them all. This is his promise, but you want to be a punching bag for them. That's you your choice.
Allah didn't want you to be that a doormat doormat for people to wrap the shoes on. That's your own, you have chosen that this is not your destiny.
So, as at Moses, Mohammed, the bow tie buried on earth, and Jesus resting in heaven. Is it true said yes. So therefore, Jesus is not like Moses, but Muhammad is like Moses. And I could see again, as a no, no, we have to soften things up. You see,
before he looks for the gun.
So as you know,
what I have been proving to you is simply one phrase. So as he is likened to the like you like Moses, I gave you eight different reasons to show that Jesus is not like Moses, but Mohammed is like Moses, but it was all to prove that one phrase, Suez j is like them to be like you like Moses, that's all part of the prophecy. The verse is more than just that one phrase. It says, I will raise them up a prophet from among the brethren, like unto thee from among the brethren not from among themselves, but from among the brethren. So who are the brethren of the Jews?
As you know,
he had two wives, Syrah and heart with a Syrah and Hydra.
He lives from bb hajra he had the first son
here in his own he was old and he was praying he wanted to Allah His work and said, Look, when I die, I don't know what's gonna happen to the message that I'm delivering to people. So yeah, by Allah grant me a son, a noble son, a pious and
that he may carry on the good works. And Allah heard his prayer. Allah heard his prayer.
And his son was born, whose name was
this marine? In Hebrew ish ma L.
Ish Ma, l in Hebrew Samia in semia in Arabic and shamia in Hebrew means the same it means to hear you say Samia lava lemon Jaime De Luca Samia la lemon Jaime de Salud. This is Allah listen to the one that praises him.
To hear semula Samia shma l. l in Hebrew means God. Illa means God. In Arabic and Hebrew, Allah means God l means God. So Ishmael l means God heard. What is the prayer of Abraham? He asked Allah for the sun. And Allah heard his prayer means Allah accepted his prayer and his marine at Islam was born.
And for 13 years, he was the only son in seed of Abraham 13 years before he
was born, after 13 years.
And the Bible says, from among the brethren,
the children of his heart are the Jews, the children of Israel and Islam or the Arabs, they are brother and one to the other.
He doesn't say from among themselves, but from among the brethren as the who are the burden of the Jews, the Arabs, though out of pride,
out of pride and arrogance, they are not giving that credit to the cousins, these other brothers, the cousins,
they make insinuations, you know, against the Arabs, about this being birthed at Hydra, they say was a slave woman. She was a slave woman of Egypt, whereas actually she was a princess of Egypt. However, this aspect we will touch with in one of
The lectures Arabs in Israel conflict or conciliation, why this prejudice? We will deal with that then. But the fact of for the moment is that he is from among the brethren.
And I will put my words in his mouth. So I said, Now, how does somebody put somebody's word in somebody else's mouth, how to put your words in your mouth?
I said, you see,
if I were to teach you a language, which you never heard, you don't know, like Arabic. And I tell you, I asked you to do me, repeat after me.
Repeat after me on who Allahu Ahad, which means, say he is the one and only so you say.
So Allah, God, eternal, absolute. So
what am I doing? I'm putting my words in your mouth.
These are not your words. You cannot do them by yourself. But what I'm saying to you, you're repeating them. So I'm putting my words in your mouth lemmya Lee Valenzuela he does not be get in is not be gotten. So he said, let me let me let me move on. And there's nothing like him to him. So
what am I doing? am putting my words in your mouth.
But when I asked you open Deuteronomy 1818. And if I asked you to read and if you read, am I putting my words in your mouth? He says no. But if I tell you something, which you don't know you never heard before, and you repeat what I tell you, I'm putting my words in your mouth. Is that right? Is that right? I said exactly. In that very manner. The whole Quran was revealed to the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu ala.
The very first revelation that was given to him, he was in the Hara, Hara cave of Hira, subsequently known as jevelin. Moon, the mountain of light, some three miles north of the city of Makkah. It was the 27th of the month of Ramadan.
He is alone in the cave.
And the Archangel Gabriel comes to him and commands him in his mother tongue
is read or decide or rehearse
and our Libya Kareem Salah Laos and being an enemy and let it he's terrified. Somebody asked me to read and when you can read so he says, ma bukharin said, I'm not learning. So the angel of God commands him a second time.
Really? And I can he please, this is not an amplifier. I'm not learning. How can I be the third time the angel of God gibril is a presence in heart.
Which means reading the name of the Lord and cherishing who created. So now, I wanna be Kareem sallallahu Sallam he grasped that what was required for him to do was to repeat, because this Arabic word is to read, to recite, to rehearse, to repeat. So he repeated this mirror because the reading the name of the Lord and cherisher who created this mirror because Allah, Allah Allah,
Allah say He created man from a mere Crota congealed blood says Allah Collins and I mean Allah Sakura. bucola Quran so read in the Lord is most bountiful acre. Akram salovey Allah bill Kalam, so he who taught the use of the pin.
Kalam, Salah Merlin in Santa Monica yalom taught me that she knew not in Santa Monica. These were the first five verses referring to the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in the cave of Hira. As soon as the angel departed, sitting over terrified, he went home three miles out to his dear wife, meaning a digital camera. And he says,
Something terrible has happened. She covers him up. And when he gets out of his excitement, he explained for what he had seen, and his fear is something has gone wrong with me. You know, we talk about other people getting possessed.
In those days, it was so much common this man that meant that many the time of Jesus, you know, he says, The spirits went into 2000 swings and they ran down the hill and they all got drowned in the Bible, then spiritually perfect, really dried up from his very roots,
and spiritual going into
animals every Santa in that day and age, he is also fearing that something has gone wrong with me. What is this? I hear Weiss always telling me to read this. And
she said, Look, Allah will not allow such a thing to happen to you. You are kind to orphans and the widows, and you're so good, you're so charitable. And she takes him to her cousin Baraka, who was a learned man of the Jewish and Christian scriptures was a Christian and a Christian. And when you heard the story, he said, You
Are the Messenger of God chosen for these people? I wish I would be alive as these people will persecute you that harm you. But I wish I was alive to defend you then.
But these were the first five verses given to him and in the next 23 years of his prophetic life, according to the needs telegrams, we receive telegram the Quran is a book of telegrams.
This is how alas speaks. He doesn't speak like once upon a time, the fox in the gray, the wolf and the lamb, Baa Baa Black Sheep, this is not the Quran. The Quran is a concentrated book.
A lot of summit.
Forests complete chapter is complete. It's an ocean. Now you start thinking about what is this ocean, but you read it, even if the meaning is in Odessa. What do you say?
God is only one. And what else is well he doesn't beget and is not bigger than us. But no father no son, yeah, what else? Very difficult. You need a commentary. The Quran is a very concentrated book, Allah talks by telegrams.
So during the next 23 years of his prophetic life, what was given is now contained in this book, the Holy Quran.
And it says,
whether we had reached that point, the Duminy felt that we should cut it short.
So it says, you know, what you are telling me sounds very good.
One day I like to call you to my church to speak to my congregation. My message that will be the day
but he'd like to call me one day, but as you see all this what you're talking about, is not important.
It's not important, is it? Look we got the veritable Son of God, He died for our sins he absorbs from our sins.
You see such a nice,
nice cushy feeling one gets somebody's paying for you. You know, you can speed away 200 kilometers an hour. And when you get caught
up, you're fine.
Would you care
to slow down
with this half a dozen supermarkets. Do you know to pay your fine for you? How nice. You have a headache and I take the pill and you can hear how nice you have a rotten appendix operate mine because mine is healthy.
Look, this is something that the men loves it anyway, we are all cowards by nature. Men is a coward by nature.
You know in the garden?
The Bible tells you that when Solomon mahama when they committed that mistake, and when God confronts them.
He says Adam, Why are you behaving like this plucking leaves and putting on yourself? What's wrong with you, you know, is the woman that it was to me, she made me to eat? Look, the coward is blaming the poor woman. And he's blaming Allah, the woman that gave us to be you know, if you didn't give me the woman, I wouldn't be in trouble.
cowardliness of Madison portraying that we are all like that. And you women, isn't always the serpent that beguiled me during the personal.
This is man, this is man, we are all like that. So somebody has died for your sin. What a pleasant feeling. You get, you don't have to exert you don't have to sweat. You don't have to pray five times a day. You don't have to fast for one whole month. You don't have to straightjacket your life. You don't have to do that.
You just have to believe that Christ died for your sins and salvation is yours. So he's got that
is not important. Important thing is guys die for your sins.
That says Do me. You know,
God Almighty, He knew this mentality of yours. What you're talking now this was well known.
So in verse 19, he wounds
I was reading 1818 we were expanding 1818
verses verse 19. It says, And it shall come to pass means is going to happen.
He said, Look, it's gonna it will come to pass this thing is going to happen, that whosoever will not happen to my words, which he that prophet shall speak in my name. I will require it of him.
I will, I'll fix him up in the Roman Catholic Bible is I will take vengeance from him take revenge. God is threatening revenge. As the you know, the 1000 prophecies, you're talking about Christ. There is not one which is followed by such a threat. God Almighty himself is threatening so I'm going to take revenge. If you will not listen to that Prophet, who will speak in my name.
And it's gonna come to pass it's gonna happen that there will be guys like that is that I'll fix them up.
God Almighty is threatening revenge. And he doesn't frighten you. We get terrified. Some gangster telling us a you coming home tonight. matches to your house. We can sleep all night. Now we will police protection. No.
Allah when he threatens God Almighty says I am going to take revenge. And you say it's not important.
And I said, in whose name is Muhammad speaking, who's
whose name is he speaking, he says, He shall come to pass that who said will not happen into my words, which he shall speak in my name.
His words are last words in my name and last name, as in whose name is Muhammad speaking, look at the book and this use of his translation. He's got a very beautiful arrangement, the end verses and sutras. When you start from the very last surah chapter 114 you start this war on us every chapter, every page is a different chapter. Amazing.
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem.
In the name of God most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim, in the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem, in the name of God most every page is every chapter, different page, every page Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem. In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. This will lie.
In the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
In whose name is he speaking,
in the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
Look how this prophecy is fitting the Holy Prophet Muhammad is fitting him like a glove. We don't have to pull stretch hook or by crook trying to prove your case. We don't have to do that.
It's fitting him like a glove, every word every chapter begins, in the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful, in the name of God, Most Gracious, Most Merciful. Amazing, amazing.
So, as you know,
what we have to do? Find out, what is this man out to teach you? What is he telling you? Why don't you investigate? Why don't you make sure what does he say? What is it telling you? He is not telling you that Jesus is not God, but God. He's not telling you that Jesus is not the Son of God, but the Son of God. He's not telling you that Christ died for your sin, but I'm gonna die for your sins, nothing.
He's inviting you to the religion of God. Worship God, the Father in heaven, who is the only God who's the real God.
But as you know,
in the time of Jesus,
the Jews were waiting for this prophet to come.
You see, the Jews have not produced another candidate. They are not making any claim to the prophecy, the only candidates are what the Christians produced Jesus Christ and the Holy Prophet.
But in the time of Jesus,
they were still waiting for this prophet of Deuteronomy 1818.
And the proof of that is you open the Gospels in john chapter one, verse 19.
And you read there, that the Jews sent in Levi's and police learned men to go to john the baptist, who was in prison, to ask him who are the Who are you?
Because the Jews had a number of prophecies. Three, they were waiting fulfillment of three prophecies in the time of Jesus. They've been waiting for the coming of the Messiah, mercy, Christ, translated Christ's mercy translate Christ. We were waiting for the coming of the Messiah.
But they had another prophecy side by side that with the coming of them before the coming of the Messiah, Elias must come first. Elyse is a prophet supposed to have gone up into heaven by Wolverine.
And before the coming of the Messiah, this man Alliance must come first. So when Jesus claimed that he is the Messiah, the Messiah Christ, this is where is Elias. So he points out to john the baptist, that john the baptist is Alliance or in the spirit of Alliance. So they were not satisfied with Jesus's
recommendation. So they go to john to make sure whether he is what Jesus is telling him to be. So they asked him
our number one first question about that Christ, the one we are waiting for mercy Are you that Jesus was the Christ? We believe that? So he says, No, I'm not. He's not that Christ. They can be to Christ at the same time.
Then they asked him how he lives. And he says, I'm not. Now this is giving a lie to Jesus. Jesus says, john is Elias and john says I'm not
know who's speaking the truth, Buddha mighty messenger.
God according to Jesus, john the baptist was the greatest of the Israelite prophets. Jesus said, among those born of women, there is not another greater than john the baptist. He is the greatest man. among the Jews, the greatest prophet among the Jews is john the baptist. And this greatest man according to Jesus says, I am not what Jesus is saying.
So, one of them is not speaking the truth. Can we take sides? No. How can we say that Jesus was speaking a lie? How can we say that he
was speaking a lie? I said, Look, this is the problem for the Christians, please don't enter into that is not our business. Let them solve the problem between Jesus and john who is speaking the truth. We don't want to know. But what we are looking for is they asked him at the LMS and he says, I'm not. Then they asked him a third question, without that Prophet.
And he says, No.
Amazing three things asking,
adult the Christ is no other Elias is no adult, that Prophet he says, No.
Then they remonstrate with him is that why then baptizes now if power, not the Christ, neither alive nor the Prophet?
There are three questions, three negative answers and three revenue strategies, remonstrating with him. Why are you doing this?
But you do
have Christian them you can see three questions he can set the as he always says to
you take any school child of standard two, and you tell him to read that he can see three he'll tell you look, Daddy, three questions are asked three answers are given in three times that thing, why are you doing this? If you are not this? Not that? Not that.
But the Lizard Man fancies programmed not to see.
You should tell him you must show it to him.
Man, he's like a baby class. You know, you're teaching these children kindergarten, Baa Baa Black Sheep is as easy as that.
And any Bible, any Bible, which has what is called a cross reference, a concordance on the side, any Bible which has that you will find the word at the point, that Prophet you'll find a number. And you look at the number on the side, it will tell you it refers to Deuteronomy 1818.
And we know that that prophet of Deuteronomy 1818 is not Jesus, but we are not denying Jesus. We believe that he was one of the mightiest messengers of God, we believe in his miraculous birth. We believe that he was the Messiah, we believe that he gave life to the dead by God's permission, and he healed he was born blind in the label by God's permission, and we are not going to dispute the 1000 prophecies that talking about that about the coming of Christ, we are not disputing a single one of them. What we say is that that this prophecy of Deuteronomy 1818 does not refer to Jesus, but it refers to Muhammad, that is all.
You have to master this. And Jesus Christ gave them a test, which he would like them to apply. He said, for the shall arise many false prophets and false Christ, who will show you great signs and wonders, miracles, false prophets can do that. He says, many false prophets and false guys, who will show you great signs and wonders, if it were possible to deceive the very elect, even the chosen one of his can be deceived such prophet of such miracles again, how are you going to know the truth from the false? He said, by the fruit you shall know them?
What produce what do they produce? By the fruits you shall know them? Do men gather? Gather grades from the form of fish from the kisser? Do they know every good tree will be good fruit and every evil tree will be evil fruit, judge them by the foods? By the fruits you shall know. We are not Paragons of virtue. We Muslims, we are not.
Let's separate that we have our black sheep like any other community, but I can boast and I have been boasting, and
I have not been contradicted that my people, the Muslims of South Africa, we have the lowest alcoholic consumption in the country. We don't say we have no tax. We have our black sheep, our drunkards as well, who might bring any other Christian or Hindu under the table. We have them too.
But we have the lowest alcoholic consumption in the country. We have the lowest gambling rate in the country. We have the lowest prison rate in the country. We have the lowest divorce rate in the country. We have the lowest suicide rate in the country, and we have the highest charity rate in the country, with what God has given us. We are the most charitable of people. We are the most hospitable of people. We are the most sober people.
We are not Paragons of virtue. We have a black sheep, we admit
crooks and cutthroat but as a people as a whole. There is not another nation or community in this country that can show a candle to us that we are better than you. What did it this means teaching. Forget everything. Remember this one thing, that at the present moment
Are 1000 million Muslims in the world 1000 million Muslims 1 billion. And we as a people as a whole.
We don't drink alcohol. We are the biggest Society of teetotallers in the world, people who don't imbibe alcohol, bigger society in the world are the Muslims, despite all our contacts, we are still the biggest Society of people who don't touch that stuff.
Muhammad did nothing, but freed mankind from this one evil. South Africa, we spent last year 2000 million Rand on alcohol. Last year, we spent 2000 million 2 billion on cameo,
very little of our money when they I hope.
My dear brothers and sisters, we have given you this little booklet,
look, take it home, master these verses master them, memorize them to such an extent that you know you can stand on your head and you can rattle it off. That's the only way to learn is that when if you can stand on your head and rattle it off,
for half awake in the middle.
So in case you are talking and the guy breaks you in the middle and he takes you off like a sharp you know you can catch up what happens is taking you this way that way, and you put it back again and again. Same thing happens in a dialogue. You know, while at work while having tea, the discussion starts and the guy takes off.
We're talking about Deuteronomy 1880. And you know about Iraq, Iran war, he wants to know about this.
So, if you have mastered it, you can bring him back again, where you left off is a suicide as you were discussing suicide is an excellent word in Simone de la and excel me in the Mona Lisa, can you say so you must master this, you owe it to yourself. And I says the pleasure and the privilege is ours. Allah has given it to us did use a hero who Allah de Nicola is given you a dean, that is the master overcome and supersede them. Waka fabula shahida. And enough is Allah as a witness for this fact that is going to make his being to prevail with you or without you, is a privilege Allah has given us that we can sell his team, we can do the work of the prophets of God and earn a profit
We are lucky with you.
Thank you very much, brother of my dear

When it comes to question time, as I look at the people now, there are very few of you that I do know.
I don't know how you ever received the talk.
I don't for one minute believe that you are going to accept or just agree with whatever of Madeira they said
you are free then for clarification, or even if you wish to differ with him, please put the question and He will answer.
All I asked him is that first of all, you wait your turn, number one. Number two, ask one question at a time.
And if you have more than one question, go to the back of the queue if there's going to be a queue.
Number three. I would like one thing
that if a person puts a question
and you feel in your mind that he's being sarcastic
that is being silly
Oh, that is being stupid. Please keep your feelings to yourself. Every man is entitled to ask his question. Please do not shout any man down.
And when an answer is given from Mr. Dida, I trust you will give him the same respect. Give him a time to answer.
And replays Do not shout him down with another question, or with a statement.
We now invite anybody to come up to the microphone
in the passage here, and to put any question that he or she may want to ask, it is with you.
Good evening, all of us. Now, Mr. Madeira. I've always heard about you. And my desire was always to talk with you, not in the state to argue or anything else. And I don't want to make excuses. Because why that's not the thing. I have heard you were talking about doing this. Now, I also want to say something about this, then I'm going over to my questions. Here's one different thing.
God as also his spirit. Now when I wanted to go to a Bible school, to stop me from going to see I insert a state clip won't interrupt. You are Mr. amati, that I just want to get a clearance on this. Not to say that I am going against you. As I've already said, I'm not making excuses. Now you have said that Jesus is not Muhammad. But Jesus is not Moses not talking about Jesus, but above Muhammad. Now, I believe that Mr. D that had also gone to Bible schools, etc, etc. as you have said, with your own mouth of selling the sugar, etc, etc. to the other missionaries, and how they teased you. I liked it too, because why it made me laugh, not for a joke, because he's the earnestness for your
faith. Now, in most 18, as you have said, It's true, which I have said about that. I agree. But in this points to go on.
Path first Deacon, Matthew,
john 1416, which Jesus has also said in his talk about someone to come in. I also believe that you say that this is the same, it's more
right? Now I'm going
to just to be patient, I am going on scriptural just to go and to say why I believe that Muhammad was not Jesus, not to go against go against the Islamic faith, because that's Christianity, not to go against anyone's faith in that currency. It says in most at
that, as you say, that Jesus that God will rise up someone, likewise to the one called Moses, its effect as you have said, but then it's revealed to that it was so it says you understand Africans Mr. Medina.
Read it nl translated to you.
In Luke seven
the listen Africans have Ella Miskin work ethic Miskin for kittens, Lake of sewer Tallahassee Florida of America still in support that Lisa Yeah, now that is a wonderware coordinate just one thing brother before you go on. We would like you to put your question you know, we would like to be patient with you and not to feel that you are cut down. If you could put the question then I can get you an answer right. Okay.
In phrase it
that was after he says a wonderware coordinate. These particular and parada
that available have worked for years. I can say 100 profit it under his own soccer star in what he folk for souk that us no de ser la Teresa, forget
Is it the so that not Jesus sets also, that is the current profit for the people? That was even Jewish people. But it was from another city called name. They said that a great profit as amongst us
a brother, could I ask you to put your question because you're quoted Luke seven, you say that the people have said that God has raised up that Jesus is a great prophet. And that is probably the Prophet refer to an 1818. Could you put your question, then we'll get an answer. Okay.
If you would like time to put your question properly, then maybe somebody else can come up and ask a question in the meantime. Okay. Okay. Anybody else? Please? Assalamualaikum.
My dear Mama, I was very impressed with your with your speech tonight. But as a Muslim, there is something that is not clear in my mind. And I think a lot of other people
would also like to get some clearance on smeta.
Of course, you did code that.
It is said that Prophet Muhammad would be the would be the one. I mean, you You said that? I mean, he's quoted that
he will be raised from amongst the brethren. Now,
of course, this means that he will be a great person. But why did God give him that greatness?
Which was so short lived? Why did he achieve that greatness only for 23 years of his life? Why wasn't he a Greek man from the time he was born? Why wasn't he?
Why wasn't he so great? I wouldn't say great. But why wasn't he so popular?
Like Jesus was? Why Why did he achieve
world popularity? Only years after his birth?
Could you explain that to us? I'm sure you will do a lot of justice to a lot of other Muslims and non Muslims in this place.
Why did God wait for 40 years before revealing the Quran to the Holy Prophet Muhammad Salah I
suppose, the Quran was revealed to him at the age of 30.
See, like Jesus Christ, he was baptized at the age of 30 in the River Jordan by john the baptist. So the look why 31 or a 25?
And if it was 21, or 20, why wasn't he born with a book in his hand?
These are questions that you have to address to Allah.
You see, as I said, the Quran is a book of telegrams. Remember,
the Quran is a book of telegrams from Allah through his messenger Muhammad Sallallahu sallam. Now you have to send a telegram to him, God Almighty, asked him, Why did you wait till the age of 40 before you deliver this message?
It's not me. It's not in my hands. He chose Moses at the age of 40. He chose the other prophets, David at the age of 40. He chose Jesus's age of 30.
That's his business.
When the time is right, the message is given.
With regards to greatness,
you see, if you read I don't know whether we're in touch with what is going on in the world today is certain Michael S. Hart has written a book called The top 100
most influential men in history. And you see the number one, Muhammad Salah
in The Times Magazine, the greatest leader of all times, Jews, Muslim man, a Jew, a United States seconds is the greatest leader of all time was Mahatma lamartine. In his history of the Turks is the greatest man that ever lived was Muhammad.
I'll be dealing with this aspect of greatness. In the third lecture, I think Muhammad the greatest.
So I hope you will hold your horses to death. Why did God choose this man at the age of 40? And why is he recognized today? In the lifetime every prophet, you know, you made a statement. I think that maybe you didn't know you slipped out of your mouth. The Jesus was a great success. You know, Mohammed had to make migration. his companion had to make two migrations ever seen. Yeah, Jesus was a great success. That is not true.
You know, he's not true.
You know, what was his? In according to the Christian what they say the man was killed on the cross is that greatness is that success. And all his disciples for Superman fled, they left him in the lurch, all 100% failure.
And today, the Christian Well, I'm not following Jesus at all. According to that Micah his heart, he says that you see, the honor for Christianity should be divided between Jesus and Paul. And actually Paul is the real founder of Christianity, not Jesus Christ.
So even as a religion, the religion that is carrying his name Christ Christianity is not his religion.
So I think you know, My son, you should check up these things, you know, before making a statement to say, you know, this man was more successful than the other, the most successful of all religious personalities. is Muhammad, according to the Encyclopedia Britannica edition 11th. edition, most successful.
Well, I don't know, nobody paid I don't know who's who paid.
Nokia. Jesus is not like Moses, but Mohammed is like Moses.
And Moses, I do believe performed miracles.
Jesus performed an abundance of miracles. But I have no knowledge of Mohamed performing miracles
could Mr. Dida just
elaborate on that?
Yeah, I'd like to say that Jesus is like Moses, because they both both perform miracles.
The question is, if it's not, was not very clear to part of the audience, that Moses performed miracles, Jesus performed miracles. But he has no knowledge whether the Holy Prophet Mohammed performed miracles. Like in the book of traditions, more than 300 miracles I ascribe to the Holy Prophet, Mohammed, Salah, Salah, but the Muslim does not make an issue of it. Because those miracles are the prophets born by our things, in books, they are a matter of history.
So saying that, look, my Prophet did this and your Prophet did that. But here again, and again, Allah but are you listening? Rather, I see that you are is your head is down that I don't know whether you're listening to me, if you look at me, then I can address you. Look, look at me. If you look at me, look, your head is right down.
You look at the video camera, and you are ashamed.
Look, you see now I'm talking to you
if the light is hurting you,
I said the Quran again and again.
You see again and again. The Holy Prophet Mohammed Salah salam, he referred to the Quran, a living miracle. You see the miracles of Moses, you know, crossing the Red Sea, right, striking the rock and rivers gushing for miracles of jesus turning water into wine, killing those 2000 peaks, drying up the victory from the very roots. Right? Now these are things in books. Say you said, Look, man, I don't know whether it happened or it didn't happen. It might sound like a fairy tale to most people. So he said, Look, talk about this is a living miracle. And I'm going to prove this to you.
You know, in a lecture in the series, Al Quran, a visual miracle. In other words, that you today in the 20th century, you can verify that this book is the miracle left behind a living miracle of Muhammad left with you.
You need a little patience for that. But if you look up the books of traditions, they are more than 300 miracles attributed to the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, but the Muslim does not go out of his way to prove the bona Fida of his puppets by those miracles. He's here, a living miracle you can see for yourself and verify yourself.
So I look forward to seeing you there. Al Quran, a visual miracle, the living miracle of Muhammad.
That is at Athlone Civic Center in Athlone, to answer the brothers question to be sure he's got to say that the Quran is the miracle which everybody can see and touch even up to today. Is any other question from the audience? Please come forward.
Good evening, Mr. reader.
I appreciate your time.
explanation for that particular scripture verse. But I have one question.
What you've said tonight is that authenticated in the Quran? Can you quote a particular verse whereby Muhammad claimed himself to be that particular prophet?
You see, the Quran
is not the words of Muhammad.
This is it. The Quran is the word of God. And God Almighty is testify. This is not the whole story. But what he didn't say this, make this claim that claim school health.
Care at the very beginning, tell them I mean, can I mean in the law? Can't you see? Are you blind, like Jesus told the Jews, he says, you know, the sheep and the goats, they hear the Masters voice, how is it that you can do your masters voice, even though you as a human being, you should have more brains in the camera than that than the than the sheep and the goats. If they can recognize that masters voice, Jesus assumes, and God Almighty also assumes that you as a as an intelligent creature of is, you will be able to recognize this as the Word of God. And in the Word of God. He says, We're shahida Sha, hidden member Nisha Illallah, mystery, and a witness from among the children of Israel,
more witness of one like him, and word for word, we find fulfillment. The Jesus Moses, through the mouth of Moses, God Almighty speaks, he says like unto thee like you, Miss laka, Mr. keenetic, Mr. mee.
So we have given you more than 20 different reasons to say that, look, this prophecy refers to the Holy Prophet Mohammed, God Almighty makes the claim on his behalf, is that this is the verification. You read that in that booklet, if it's if you have that the very first verse that's written on the top introduction, the very first verse on the first page, you will find the quotation from the Quran.
You didn't get that book of ours is the Bible. God's what the Bible says about Muhammad, the very first page, you see that verse, which is the confirmation from God Almighty, that this is the prophecy finds fulfillment in the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.
Do you see whether this message be from Allah, God Almighty, and yet you rejected? It is and a witness from among the children of Israel, for witness of one like him? Do you see whether this message be from Allah God Almighty? Now I read through the translation of the Quran. And there's one part that struck me when he, when he gave the scripture that he received from the angel Gabriel, in the form of the Holy Spirit, when you receive it, and he gave it to them, I would like to ask you one question, but that is not. That is not our point of the thing is that can I like to know for sure, why point number one, when he revealed
the Quran, right when he revealed the word to them? Can you tell me why? Firstly, it his eyes turned red, like fire and his temper, and other bad temper, and yet further down is brought to a conclusion that the air to stress is desperate to get the attention. Right. But now what I'd like to know is that
can you tell me for sure that not to, I speak under full correction. And I'd like to know, there is a difference between the Holy Quran and the Bible. There's a very big difference. And from this point, I'd like to read you some scripture here, say the Holy Quran 46 verse 10. Do you see whether this message be from Allah? Right. But I'd like to stay to a point because you said you, you excerpts from too many too many. Right? And you went from one point to another point, seeking the truth. Right. So seeking the truth concerning the economy. 18 verse 18. But that is not my point. What I'd like to know is that is can the Quran fully be fully be accepted as the Word of God? But
before you answer me, I'd like to read through something.
Yeah, could I get? Could you put the one question which you would like him to answer? Just one? Right. I like to read to him the script service and why won't you read afterwards? Do you finish your question first? Yes. What was the question again? Look, you rambling too much. You take a look. I'm an old man of 66 now, and I'm standing on my feet for two hours. Will you please be merciful to me? Come forward with your question. What is the question?
Don't ramble. All right, sir. I'll bring it to you. You talked about the Antichrist. I never spoke about the Antichrist now about the 666 the number, the white one, I never use the word antichrist in my pocket. I know. So why are you trying to put in my mouth? He talked about the beast, that I mean to refer to the beast price.
666 Yeah, yeah. Let's see, that's not the point. The question is here in Shawn, I, what is your question?
Could you put the question you can support it with the text afterwards? This is for you.
The one who has been challenging you see now, every Christian that comes forward, he has got the spirit. But when it comes to ask question, the spirit deserves you. I don't know why. Why can't people ask questions?
You misquoting me you putting words in my mouth, which I never uttered? You know, this brother is doing the same. I said, What is happening with this spirit that you're supposed to be carrying with you? Let that spirit help you to ask the question, if I haven't, sure.
I just asked you what is truth?
That is what Pilate asked Jesus, which he never answered, and I answered an ounce huge
question on Chase, Pilate asked Jesus, what is truth? And you read that Jesus never answered that question. Right? If you want to know what is truth, this is what the Quran says. I'll hakomi radical Walla talkin minimum 13 is the truth comes from the Lord alone. So be not be those of those who doubt. And this is the truth. That is the revelation of God. It is the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.
Whatever God says is truth.
Justice one more point. I like one more question. Can you tell me is a God of Allah user, and the God I serve is with the same God? You see, in principle, we all believe in the same God. But you have a certain concept of God Almighty, if you are a Christian, are you a Christian? Yeah, no, you are a Trinitarian.
Are you a Trinitarian? Yes. Right. You see, that is your concept of God Almighty, Father, Son and Holy Ghost, which we say is not the teaching of Christ, Jesus Christ.
Jesus Christ. You see in the Gospel of St. Matthew, chapter four, verse 29, a learned man of the Jew comes to him and says, Master, what commandment is the first of all?
And Jesus answers and says unto him, not for the three that we witness in heaven, the Father, the Word and the Holy Ghost. And these three are one No, no, he said, The first is, in the Hebrew language, Shema Yisrael, Adonai eloheinu, Adonai, which means here, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. This is the first commandment as given by Jesus Christ. See, the first is that Lord God is the one and only God knew man can see God and live, God is not seen at any time, God is spirit, and those that worship Him must worship Him in truth and in spirit, not informed, not in shape, not inside this verse about the Trinity. Four, there are three that bear witness in heaven, the Father,
the Word, and the Holy Ghost, and these three are one is in the Bible that that brother is carrying. But in all the modern translation,
including the RSV, the Revised Standard Version of the Bible, I wonder if you heard about the Revised Standard Version of the Bible, which is the most up to date Bible in the world today. This was brought about by 32, scholars of the highest eminence, backed by 50 cooperating denominations, and they have as a whole student out, expanded it from the Bible, like ever look at it is not there. This was on the Trinity is thrown out as a fabrication as an interpolation. You know, who did it not Jews, not Hindus, not Muslims, but Christians, scholars of the highest eminence. So now you are creating a religion of a fabrication. This was in the Trinity is a fabrication. Jesus Christ didn't
teach you that the Father, Son and Holy Ghost are co equal and co eternal. This is the teaching of your church.
Where does Jesus say I am a father, we are both equal. Does he say any such things? Does he say that he is God? No way. There is not a single unequivocal statement in the whole encyclopedia called the Bible, not a singer. I hope you understand my English and every vocal mean simple, straightforward to say, I am God. He says we should mean if you can find such a statement, and you have a whole week while I'm around
You just bring that over at any of my meetings, from your Bible with Jesus says, I'm God, awareness is worship Me, and in front of all the people, I will be prepared to accept Him as God and I will be prepared to worship him.
But I'm giving you an opportunity next Tuesday night, in your Bible, any Bible, whether it is the Roman Catholic version, or the King James Version, or the revised version, or the Revised Standard Version of the American Standard, or the Jehovah's Witness version, any Bible that you can mean, bring it to me in any meeting, and in front of everybody. I will follow and join your church. How's that? Sir? I would agree with that. So I'm giving you opportunity to next Tuesday night. Sorry, brother. Right on what is our time is running out according to the people of the whole. And I saw somebody coming up to the microphone with a stripe, Suzy, please come forward.
would be the last question. And could you be brief, please. Okay. Good evening, everybody. You see that? The that is the Revised Standard Bible. Right. So you see that the Revised Standard Bible that's been taken out of the Trinity, right, the trend has been taken out the right. So what questions to get
through that portion of the Bible of the Trinity. What was in the
paper, the Trinitarian Christians, people themselves were trinitarians, in Moodle, Moodle pot in the Free State, there was a church.
And in that church Synod, they asking themselves, the question, how many of them that preach Trinity in the church, they believe in the Trinity, those who preach it, and 85% of the people that were there who preach Trinity, they say they didn't believe in the Trinity. This is how good it is. So it has no biblical basis. Your Trinity is not there. Jesus is not God. He never claimed to be God.
Nowhere does He say I am God loves me. So this is a creation of the church. See, and your scholars and if you read here, the testimonies about this Bible, this Bible here, what church do you belong to my son your church, but you also one of the members who are responsible for this? What you do you belong to? You know, church, yes, you what church?
Are you a Roman Catholic?
What should you belong to?
Why are you ashamed of your church? Why don't you say what church you belong to?
Right, listen, Church of England newspaper.
Church of England, as
they say, the finest version which has been produced in the present century, this Bible finest version, times literary supplement says, The completely first Translation by scholars of the highest eminence, language, which is not only dignified, but also contemporary, fullest use of resources of modern scholarship. Life in work says the well loved characteristics of the Authorized Version, combined with a new accuracy of translation. And the time says, the most accurate and close rendering of the original, the most accurate, and close rendering of the original, and they found it fit to throw out the penalty, they found fit to throw out the word would be gotten in john 316, that
this was also another interpolation. They saw fit to throw out the essential, which has also according to them an interpolation.
If you like, at the end of the meeting, you can have a look at this Bible. And then you can question me at the next meeting if I'm wrong.
Sorry, I'm just not I want to state that point that you just hit. Now. You see that the 30 has been thrown out of the Bible. Right? Correct. So I asked you a question what Christians did, and you couldn't give me an answer. But the 50 cooperating denominations of Christian
Baptists, they were Anglicans. They were perhaps Roman Catholics. 52 denominations went to do their job, or doesn't that isn't the answer that the answer is you didn't tell me what church you belong to. Maybe your church was also involved there. No. Sorry. That was the last question. And I would like to take this opportunity to say many many things for your attendance tonight and for your participation one in all of those who did please roll up at the other lectures. If you would like some enlightenment further, thank you.
a salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakatu. Good night ladies and gentlemen.
