Let me first express my deep appreciation to the Islamic Propagation center international of Queens, New York
brother Akiko Khan and his associates of the IPC I for the farsighted vision in conceiving and care
Alpha plans for this gathering here tonight.
I would like also to extend a most cordial Welcome to those who have travelled long distances to honor us with their presence.
I am particularly grateful that not only our distinguished scholar Shaykh Abdullah DITA,
but also anyone who has no claim to scholary attainment
has been included in the invitation to stand before you tonight that one being your yours truly.
That we have been summoned here tonight, on this most auspicious occasion argue as well for success now and its impact in the future inshallah
be no better advocation for a person than to call mentor laws way and to confirm his or her conduct to the teachings that he or she preaches to others and to submit themselves entirely to the will of Allah
subhanho wa Taala This is the essence of Islam.
I had been thinking
about what to say to our students, they've seen me so many hours standing before them in our classrooms. And
I was thinking tonight, since we have our great scholar Sheikh Ahmed deedat, here with us, what should be my talk tonight
and hamdulillah that during the past week, an incident occurred that, I think would say at all, once I convey it, I think it will deliver just what I would probably like to say what I would like to say to my students and to our guests tonight.
I had when my wife and I had went up to the school on this day that they call Halloween here in New York, I had went up to pick up my kids from school early that evening, because of the
behavior of some of the school kids on this particular day after school. So to keep my kids from being bothered or even bothering other people for that matter. I said, Well, let's go get the kids out of school earlier and wait for them and bring them home rather than let them take public transportation. So my wife and while we were waiting in front of the school there.
This is a junior high school here in Queens, New York, in Queens. And while we were parked there sitting in my van, which has tinted windows, and you can't really see in there,
there were some teenagers on the corner in front of the school peddlin selling x rated movies, x rated movies
to the students that they came out of school x rated movies.
And one of them seeing the van pull up and so they walked up to the van to present one to whoever they felt was sitting in the passenger side of the van and wanted to see if you want to you're interested in buying one of these x ray movies.
And not being able to see through the window they didn't know who they were talking to. So they presented it as he didn't get any response. He moved on a little further in front of the van. At that point, you can see through the clear window, the windshield portion. And so now this individual happened to see myself sitting on the driver's side with a white, what we call a cookie on a white picket dress, white headdress. And right away he recognized his mistake. He knew that he was peddling his wares
in a condition that they will not they wouldn't they wouldn't be accepted. And he realized that he had made a mistake. So right away, this individual went to his buddy to his partner and told him immediately what he had done in the big mistake that he you can see the expression, what he had done and what mistake he had made by trying to sell x rated movies to Muslim or to Muslims. And the friend.
The friend approached the van and began to make apologies for his buddy. He began to apologize. No one said anything. Nothing at all. This is just spontaneous action.
occurred, he began to apologize for the mistake and for the intrusion of his friend.
And they walked away. And not only that, but they left the area altogether. Now, they just left the whole area altogether. So that impressed me and then gave me a good idea. Now, in terms of given down, when we talk about inviting and calling people to the way the law
that given dour is more than just becoming scholary, having a lot of good words to say to people, but also our conduct, conduct as Muslims play a great role in given down. And we be surprised now that by identifying ourselves and my point is this and I don't mean to, by the statements don't want to make belittle anybody or embarrass anybody. I just simply want to say, particularly to those students who engage in
dour training, that they want to make themselves examples of people who invite to the way of a law that these Muslims, men and women should, in their conduct, display the character of the dour of the message that they would like to invite to.
also keeping that in mind, a verse from the Koran.
In chapter 33, of the Quran, verse 59, there it says in the translation, old Prophet,
tell by wives and the daughters, and unbelieving women, that they should cast them out of garments over their person when abroad, that is most convenient that they should be known as such meaning as believing women, and not being molested. And a law is often forgiving, Most Merciful.
Two points come to mind in this verse. And that is that a loss of one wants Allah is instructing the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam that he enjoined upon his wives, and the believer in women, that when they go out abroad, venture out of their private domain, that they conduct themselves in a certain manner, that they dress in a certain manner, for two reasons, main reasons, and that is that they not be given trouble, they not be molested, they not be harassed in the society, because they're not displaying their beauty, flaunting their beauty, so that therefore they're not given trouble and also that they can be recognized, recognized as believing women. And this is my point,
the point of being recognized in the society that we as Muslim men and women, we can give gala, by being recognized by being recognized as believing men and women. It's just like the police officer, the police officer unless he's got some undercover work that he's trying to do. He's recognized. So when you see the police officer approaching, he's recognized, he identifies himself and right away, you want to escape from whatever it is that you're plotting or planning and doing.
The fireman when he comes out to do his job. He's recognized the doctor when he approaches you in the office, he's recognized. And so therefore, it's a good practice of us as Muslims to have some identification,
especially in our clothing in our dress, regard. And I'm not
saying that there's any particular manner of dress now particularly for men, the women's position in Islam is known. But for us brothers in Islam, that we in, especially in a society like the West, in America, that we should identify ourselves that we can be known that our brothers can know each other, and that at the same time, others can know and perhaps, inquire of us, why do you wear this? Who are you? What are you what is your religion, and this gives us a chance to enter into dialogue. I just hope that by relating that particular incident, I'm sure many of you have similar incident incidents that you could refer to
that this would inspire you in that area. And before I close, I don't want to speak too much. But before finishing, I would consider it
My pleasure and my duty
on behalf of the IPC Ei and on behalf of the students of the IPC I the summer propagation center International, that we thank our beloved brother shake up my
And teacher, shake up mudita we all are most grateful to you that you have very graciously come here to be with us tonight. And the fact that you have been kind enough to interrupt your busy schedule to come here shows the importance that you attach to this work that we're doing a loss of one on one to Allah bless you, and bless all of us who strive and his core and that he gives us victory over the nonbelief just like a lot higher.
Now I request brother amoda shaquil Islam to come to the podium and deliver this inspiring message.
Allahu Akbar Allah. Allahu Akbar, Allah. Allahu Akbar, Allah
virgin Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
Whelan, tada, and Kalia, hoodoo. rollin Asara, pata, pata de la serda, la
z. Mr. Chairman, and my dear brothers and sisters,
I read to you a very short verse
from the Holy Quran
from Surah Al Baqarah.
I remember 120
in it Allah Baraka, God Almighty,
He gives us
the eternal relationship
existing between the Jews, the Christians and the Muslims.
He tells us
Tada, uncle, Yahoo, dough, Whelan, masala Hata.
The Jews and the Christians will never, never be satisfied with your Muslims, unless you follow the brand of religion.
In other words, there's no peace, they won't be satisfied. Now mind what you say, how much you bent backwards to appease them,
you will not be able to satisfy them.
For example, we in the house of Islam,
we tell the Christians that believe in Jesus, one of the mightiest messengers of God,
we mistakenly believe in his miraculous birth, that he was born without any male intervention,
which many more than the Christians, including the Anglican bishops.
They do not believe today. The Christian bishops don't believe that we must think that Jesus Christ was born without any human intervention. We believe that he was the Messiah, we really dedicate life to the dead by God's permission. And he he was born blind and the lepers by God's permission.
Does that satisfy them?
Unless you join the church, and each and every church won't be satisfied until you join his particular church. You should become a Roman Catholic. The Protestants are not happy. If you become a Jehovah's Witness, all the rest of the Christians are not happy. If you become a Seventh Day Adventist, the others are not happy. How can you make them happy?
But you have to follow their particular brand of religion to make them happy, which is an impossibility.
So we keep on repeating that we believe in this mighty messenger of God.
they said to the Muslims in the early days, is that you listening?
There is no heaven for you.
Unless you become a Jew, and the Christian said the very same thing. There's no heaven for you. Unless you become a Christian.
All your good deeds. The Christian will say I like dirty rags. worthless rubbish. You fast and you pray you go for Hajj. You straightjacket your life. You don't drink. You don't gamble. You don't
You don't want to go to hell.
Because salvation is the exclusive preserve, because they say, Christ died for the sins who died for yours
who died for your sins?
We know it's one of the most ridiculous question anybody can ask.
Who died for your sins is just like asking you, who eats for you when you're hungry.
When you have a good example for you,
when you have a rotten appendage who gets operated on your behalf, this is the silliest question in the world. But that guy penalizes the Muslims when they ask you to die for your sins and Muslims are stinking, yes, who and you can find anybody
they will not be satisfied with you no matter what you do, how would you bet the Jews they have fallen out of the ratio wanting to convert us they will be satisfied, if we
will acknowledge the right to Palestine, the robbers of our lands our version of the land at the point of the gun, and now if you are happy with them, they will be happy with us. As long as you keep on caring for your land, they will not be satisfied.
Now, this battle is going on
for the past 1400 years.
And I as an Indian Muslim.
I felt it
during the days of our history of Muslim history in India,
you see when the British when they conquered India,
they realized that anytime anybody give them trouble, it will be the Muslims. Because power rule Dominion was in the hands. And they are far more militant community than the Hindus of the time.
They within as bosiet as the cows that they were worshipping. There was no fear from the quarter. The Muslim was the problem. And they felt that if we can convert these people, teach them to turn the other cheek. Jesus Christ said, if a person says You and I together, teach the Muslim to do that, that we can do in India for 1000 years.
That was the master plan.
And they're all yours for 1000 years.
So they started pouring in the missionaries, like frogs in the rainy season.
frogs in this country, you have frogs here.
Some countries that don't have access to Dr.
Howard like frogs in the rainy season.
And they start challenging the Muslims to public debates. Now I'm reading this in a book
written about 100 years ago by an Arab gentleman who is trying to help Indian Muslims as to how to give battle to the Messiah.
A book called
The truth revealed some reading this book and this tells me that these British Russian is challenging the Muslims to public debates.
At first, Muslims are reluctant naturally, because these people have just conquered our land. And we speak to militantly Cousteau, they might send us to the Andaman Islands, they call them the black waters, or like the Robben Island in South Africa, you talk too much, you go there. So mums the word
keep out of trouble.
And number two, our people are live again they didn't English.
So how can you have a debate with the people who are speaking foreign language you can use people who speaks English? How can you debate
so the Christian missionary is something we have to credit them, the genius of the Western world, that wherever they go, whatever country they go to, they learn the language of the native. They take a crash course and within three months, they speak your language. They
go to Pakistan,
Malaysia, they learn Malaysian wherever they go, they master the language of the Navy.
So these people British put into the tradition, they master the language of EU
and now they started telling the Muslim to debating
but excuse Have you got now.
So the younger generation forced the Maulana Abdul Aziz of Delhi, maulana Abdul Aziz Bellavita belly
These people are telling me his or her own mother tongue
this new retreat.
So this Maulana was forced to accept the challenge that certain Reverend founder, who was the head of this missionary work in India at the time, he should the challenge and the challenge is accepted. And the debate takes place in Delhi.
It is the future 100,000 people gathered.
They will no mic systems in new loudspeakers. I don't know how much travel those days, but it didn't matter to the bulk of the people, they can really see these two giants. They're having it out. And they have their own communities to make as to set a date and with a reverence every day, and there was satisfaction enough.
So the Reverend starts the ball rolling by suggesting to the Malala Malala means a priest, our Slavic Muslim.
Manasa means restricted Mawlana get started
with the debate.
So the Mawlana
You said you see,
you are a
Because Christianity precedes Islam by 600 years. Christianity is 600 years before Islam. So as such you our elder brother, and according to our culture,
you heard the first preference.
Number two, you are a guest no doubt an unwelcome guest, but a guest at that. And according to tradition, you have the first preference.
So the Reverend was forced to start and he started with a question.
is more or less a
What is your Prophet Muhammad? Nah, nah, this minute.
So the moment
and he said that he is in general pseudos, heavenly bliss with
out of debt answered in the second question, it was planned, said all right, all right. Tell us Nirmala Messiah
was your Prophet Muhammad, when his grandson Hussein was martyred, Karbala killed, murdered slave? Who was he then?
See the monana thought again for the moment?
And the answer. He said he was still in general for those who don't
have that answer in the third question.
said all right, all right. Now tell us
that if your Prophet was his Allah in heaven,
when his grandson Hussein was being martyred to butcher,
these, he asked his Allah
so Oh, my Lord,
my grandson, please help you out of his difficulty. Did he asked Allah for help?
And there was a force a long pause.
And the priest could hold his patience. He started stomping his feet. Come on, come on.
Then he asked me if you have a big brother, somebody cannot believe you. Won't you ask for his help?
By your side
and you have access to him? Who did not ask?
Did he or didn't he asked his Allah for help?
So after some cause, the Maulana says he did
it, it was a natural thing to do.
So what did you say?
What did you say?
And there was an inordinate pause, a very, very long pause, and the police are still staggered once more baby's feet. Come on, come on.
What did you say?
So the molana
started. Slowly. He said, Allah.
This is called
You know, tit for tat.
If somebody catches you up, you catch him out. It has got nothing to do with facts.
The truth or falsity of a thing now is just you trying to be too clever Leatherman tries to be a little cleverer than you. That's all.
The debate was over. But this was the type of confrontations that were taking place.
During the early days,
and other incidents I read about in the same book, about another era chef who loves small prints. A Christian missionary got stuck into him.
The day out, he visits this, this chef, this ruler,
wanting to convert him to Christianity, trying to save him from alpha, salvation, salvation,
and especially the life of him, and he persevered, he wouldn't let go, this is a great quality
is a fantastic quality that the Christian has. If he sees some little weakness in your path, he will never let you go. If you do a finger will catch you by the hand.
The Muslim get satisfied. He says he has an argument, a little confrontation. And in the argument, he beats a Christian and is happy. He will Joe's witnesses, they don't come to my door anymore.
I said, you know, that guy wouldn't be happy with you, if he just notice any little weakness in your path, that guy would have taken the life of you.
He would have physically not to do Jehovah's Witnesses. Or you tell him next time I see your face down the door would have bled through you. Either way, he wouldn't let you go. But the nice thing gets satisfied
with it easily satisfied. I beat the fellow. He doesn't see me anymore. He doesn't come anyway, he takes he walks on the other side of the road now.
I said You're a fool man.
What you ought to have done, when the guy comes into the house, take his name and address first. And his telephone number.
If he doesn't want to give you push it out, he doesn't deserve to be in your house. He's like,
the man comes to your house. And you're asking me emoji me. He doesn't use his name,
your address, he knows what his address your telephone number. He doesn't give you a telephone number. What do you do with a person like he's a thief, He's a thief in the night. You kick him out in the main
town. And after discussion, you find that the gases are coming to you again, to see.
you pester the life out of him, you don't let go, the Christian will let you go.
The Muslim is satisfied.
The guy says
he doesn't come back in.
So this Christian missionary got stuck into this era chef and movies. How to get out of this difficult he's coached remedy coaches people.
And our hospitality is getting the better of us as well. He said the mystery is ever hospitable.
Anybody comes along, says well,
that guy has come to steal your God your faith to convert you but as
a family and play.
This is the MR mentality, wherever anywhere in the world. But that gets a bit of him with other guys making lists in his head.
And he allows it
so this year he didn't know what to do how to get out of the difficulty. So he he
was at Atlanta. It was one of his ministers is a look next time this guy comes along. I want you to come and whisper something in my ears. Okay.
And the guys the next month, Florida, Russia,
at least you know Christ died for your sins.
He died for your sins. solution
does not come to any other way, except by the blood of the Lord Jesus.
He started his own story, same story. And there comes this minister was presenting the shift.
And the shift starts to cry.
Like a woman who has lost a husband
what's wrong What's wrong?
What is he telling me I can sympathize with you. So now you got
more interested to while crying so bitterly.
So this force
Essentially, to say that I just got the sad news. So let's say that the Archangel Gabriel, his mama, mama is dead.
Angel, Archangel Gabriel, the Holy Ghost is dead.
So don't be fooled. This is dangerous don't die,
says the priest. So the shape says and you fully telling you that God,
Jesus Christ is God, he knows that as a god. One man can carry the sins of the world, you know that?
How can you say the sins of the whole of mankind from Adam to eternity? He was a god.
So they say he that is a God, because as a man you can tell since
one man can tell, everybody says millions and billions of people must be a god. So humans die as a god. So I said, you will use it the god died.
these are all studies.
These are all studies.
The Christians have been the new techniques
and the harrassing of of people all over the world.
More they come to God now more sophisticated.
They come to the Muslims.
As Jesus said, like wolves in sheep's clothing, they come to you like lambs.
In the cousin lands,
and they start with
just a brother
This is can I have a few minutes with you? The Muslim is super hospitable is like Sarah,
or some tea in some some uses.
This probably hospitality.
Life, the other 70 and samosas has come.
So now the Christian starts so many techniques,
said you believe in Jesus.
We believe in Jesus, you you
know, you're not a Muslim.
Muslim Allah, you say you don't believe in Jesus, you're not a Muslim.
When you deal with implication you didn't understand you didn't grasp.
The muslimah says, we believe in Jesus. This is you know, he was one of the mightiest messengers of God. What do you say? What do you say?
You must be honest,
you must ever be honest. with each other. Sam says something very beautiful. He said, seek the truth. and the truth shall make you free. At any time. Anybody? Whatever question the man poses to you give the straight true answer. Don't be afraid to get caught.
Even if he's sticking to your slaughter, to the hang of us, cooperate with him. Well, this is what mammals do.
Whatever you recognize is through to accept you accept yourself where it's taking you less not your business.
You have to speak the truth.
You believe that? he is? He was born miraculously. He said yes. That's what the Quran testifies. He was born without any major intervention. Jesus. Yes. No, he was the Messiah, mercy.
Translated Christ. So we accept.
This is evil. He gave life to the dead.
What do you say? Yes. Bismillah with the permission of Allah.
So whatever he says the Muslim cooperates, he's got to cooperate, because this is his way.
So now he's posing you changing the manner of his questioning. He said you said that Jesus was born miraculously, without any major intervention.
so much Oh, boy. Yo, Muhammad was born like that without a father,
a father and a mother.
So when the higher Apogee says,
See your father and mother,
did you hire
he doesn't tell you that but he's
Jesus have mercy who was Messiah
translate the Christ.
You said? Yes. And that was in Hebron, mercy who is?
Messiah mercy Jesus Christ the son of Mary.
We he was Muhammad masuleh
Yes. But he says
yes, so is
your profit? So he says, Rasul Allah See? two degrees? Now the degree of Jesus,
Jesus the life of the dead? Did you have
another degree of Jesus?
So here is your Prophet Muhammad. With Regina.
Buried in Medina, yes.
Where is Jesus? is in heaven?
is coming back? Yes.
Prophet is dead in Medina, Jesus says,
Don't you think God had a purpose in doing all that?
He did for nothing.
You just make Kobani he had
made a sacrifice sheep or goat or cow. I don't know what you do here.
And when you do Kobani according to the teachings of Islam, look for an element without blemish. Holla broken, you're not blind. Not limping, right.
So go Nike wants to make a sacrifice for his creation. Is he going to look for a second best?
You look for second best. No. second best. No.
And this proved to be second best.
These are new methods.
It is so easy and so childish.
That because you're not in the field, you're not in the field. You don't know what the implications are the guy's talking about. So you are being lifted a slaughter.
And he's gonna slaughter
these lovely people. See, people simple people. They cooperate and they get slaughtered because they don't know what are the implications of all this?
Visit Jesus was one miracles. So what?
So what does that make you superior to Mohammed?
according to the standard of yours is that means Jesus God in the Son of God because he's the father. Then Adam is a greater God.
The Quran tells us very simple reason, logic.
Allah Isa lalani tomaselli Adama the similitude example of Jesus in the sight of Allah.
Allah Allah will
Be and he was.
So he Jesus is the Son of God, because more than ever is a greater God and a greater Son of God.
Will you stand by that?
mother, than atoms with no mother, no father, who used to be
He was created from dust.
Says the question is What about me, he said,
book of Hebrews, chapter seven. You read a in the Christian Bible, similar to the High Priestess.
Without father, without mother, without beginning without any.
What Paul wrote, without father without mother,
the high priests of Salah, I'm asking who's greater Jesus.
Jesus had a mother.
Every Christian testifies to that every person has the remind themselves wanting this table to just go back to the beginning.
And he had an apple and they say he died on the cross. He had a beginning. You had an apparent in this man, no beginning no a who's later legislativo Jesus come and stand to be
nice. He wants to get out.
The thing is you have to do a little bit of both.
The problem is as is that you are too damn lazy. You do not
This is a different thing.
Even question on the Day of Judgment. Why didn't you make Salah because you did that will save you from this.
This is a different thing altogether.
You have to do a little bit of homework.
Is this carrying on classes here? I don't know how much is staggering. I didn't have chance to ask him Allah. What do you say
to him Zamalek? It's free, at least for the reason you don't value it never touches.
Anything you get for nothing. He didn't value.
So if you see Jesus Christ, mercy, mercy and was the Prophet.
That's what it appears to be.
what is Mercy's Messiah? The Christian is programmed within that means God is God.
So, the Jews will not wait for a Messiah, mercy
will not waiting for a call man call.
The Jews are not waiting for any men gods to come down from heaven.
This mercy Messiah was a title
meaning the anointed one.
The Anointed One is the appointed one. When God appoints a person we say he is maintained by God means that is appointed by God. He is authoritative messenger of God.
And asset every prophet of God is mercy. Messiah.
Allah opposes messengers. He chooses his messengers musala Salah was chosen by God Moses, that's such a mercy.
But we will say that
you see in human language, certain attributes certain qualities we specifically a five to 7%
like I don't know up for what history people read.
And the British system I've lived in British colonies all my life at school and the British system. They taught us about Alfred the Great
he was one of the English kings given the cake. Alpha, the Greek who burn the cake.
As the alpha was the great alpha degree, that's what this alpha the great
what made the cake smoothie great. No, no, just the title of the game alpha great as all the other things are on greetings.
But this guy's got the title. Richard the lionhearted.
Richard the Lionheart? sala de the Crusades. Richard the Lionheart
as all your other English
but why is this only this one line?
No, this is how
you seven times
in the house of Islam.
You speak about
telling the law.
If you don't know the language, know something about theology, religion, law, and asking. Allah
is a prophet Moses. What does kalevala means? One who spoke with God?
What about the other prophets? Did Jesus freaking God? Yes, yes.
Allah, but we'll use a
beautiful video responses
because otherwise it would be to say Mr. Lucas, Muslims
The father of the Jews, the Christians and the Muslims father of Islam.
Abraham, he is in the house of Islam Allah, Allah wa is the friend of God. What about all the others? Allah?
This is titles UK, he said Rasulullah
This is how you are used to thinking.
But once you know you find it so easy to respond.
Now for this homework, you don't have to join the class.
Available booklets. And each and every booklet is a masterpiece, little things.
That Baptist Church, this one here they go dancing, dancing, that one does a lot of dancing, singing, and so
forth, the liberal Baptist churches. I don't know how many more now? I don't know.
But so you're asking they're asking all the time? What do
you belong to? So that's the same question you asked, what should you belong to?
So if I give you a name,
anything, you never happen in your life before. Mennonite?
Mennonite is a church or
christadelphian, church, Episcopalian church, Roman, whatever, he gives you a name in response to a question Who is your customer?
is a different type of customer. This is a different type of customer, but he's also your customer.
you never heard it before in your life?
In response to a question what church you belong to any Mennonite?
Is your customer, anything he tells you? Whether you grasp it or not? Who is your customer? So you ask him a second question. So you also
said of course, because that's the foundation of his faith.
That's the foundation of Christian Christianity. Paul says in the book of Corinthians, First Corinthians chapter 15. He says, If Christ is not risen from the dead, our preaching is vain. Your faith is a
very useless, worthless garbage. If this thing didn't happen, there is no Christianity. Christ must die and rise again. If not, there is no personality. That's what forces and we no Christian ever comes to our houses in my country, to teach us ethics, about morality, about hygiene, personal hygiene and talking about no Christian.
No question. They teach me ethics, morality, hospitality, hygiene, nothing you can teach me.
In my country, I boast South Africa, I come from South Africa,
that we Muslims, we have the lowest alcoholic consumption in the country. We have the lowest gambling rate in the country, we have the lowest suicide rate in the country. We have the lowest universities in the country, we have the lowest prison rate in the country, and we have the highest charity rate in the country.
There is not another nation in my country.
And no nation, no community can share Canada's idea better than you.
But I must have must apologize. But still you don't get Converse.
Now the reason is,
when we get Converse, we will move on our mouse. That's
anything you have you ever said. You have a pop, you don't talk, you don't sell, you have the Kohinoor diamond.
There's a way to market
So that's the only drawback we have in South Africa. I'm talking about.
how do you he says
didn't say yes, that is the common denominator all over the Jehovah's Witness, Seventh Day Adventist, Baptist whatever. He was a Christian, you must believe that percentage.
So he said yes, we see you knew the answer beforehand.
natural response automatic? So yes.
Third question is does Christ
Miss Christ without Lucy? Is it Jesus?
Because the guy did it to you. You believe in Jesus. You believe in his miraculous birth. You did his miracles, the same thing you do to him the same thing.
You also believe that? Yes.
Who is this Christ is Jesus?
Jesus is the Christ who said, Yes, Jesus is the Christ. So when he was born,
was born Christ, it was about Jesus.
Because Christ is a title.
Like Bush, he was on was born president was he
was born president.
At a certain stage in his life, the guy becomes president Africa becomes a president. You become a principal of a school you become a director when we want director. You want headmaster? You want chairman? No.
So, Jesus, when did you become the Christ?
He says, because chapter two, verse 23, he tells us when he was eight days old, he was circumcised, and named Jesus by the angel when he was in his mother's womb.
Jesus when, when he was in his mother's womb, he wasn't me Christ?
was a no.
When did you become the Christ?
is baptized in the division by john the baptist. And voices heard from heaven saying, This is my Son, in whom I'm well pleased. From that day onwards, he becomes a Christ chosen one.
Before that, if he had died
before the age of 30, baptism, and before he's all these things happened the next three years, if this incident happened, you'll never hear about Jesus.
He died, you will never
have to go through this complete cycle for you to hear about Jesus.
So at the age of 31, is baptized when he becomes a Christ. So he claims to be the case he didn't pray for that. In the temple of
He confirmed the limit when in the temple, but he didn't say he was attached.
From the age of 30 onwards, now he's making the claim that he is the Christ, anointed by God, appointed by God.
Now, when he made such a claim, the Jews were not satisfied.
They didn't like him for some reason.
But they didn't accept him at his face when he said antichrist, the Messiah.
So they tend to hate the Jews. They came to him, as we read in Matthew, chapter 12, verses 3039 40. That's what you read in the little booklet, those three verses, and you have to memorize that. If you don't memorize that you can't do the job. You just listening to me is entertainment and entertaining. If that's what you came here for,
But this is a look, let's see what we can do.
We are now in an ocean you're in an ocean ocean of Christianity in South Africa, we are an ocean of Christianity.
In South Africa, we are less than 2%.
Here to I don't know how many percent
of the population of America 1% 2%
but, but we are in an ocean.
In this ocean, either you see what you see.
And to be able to swim. Now you have to master this and you have to put it on applied onto the other end. Now you asked him, you see when he came to the Christ, the Jews came to him and you have memorized those three verses. If you can memorize. You have not the Thai fit for better.
You might as well throw in the towel.
You can do the job.
Then keep on keep on making Salah with that rosary.
With only don't say your children the Christian onslaught that has to be of yours, that
you have to learn
how to combat this
musikmesse that they are now one thing, man, they're making all our effort
all over the world.
So you have to learn to get back to here at home.
He says they come to him and they say, Master, in the Hebrew language,
we will sign of the, we want you to show us a mirror.
Like a man playing like a bird walk on the water, you'd like to be dead do something man, then we know that we are men of God.
What a way of judging a man of God. So Jesus says yes, this is an evil and adulterous generation secret.
and evil and adulterous generation seek.
In common language with bastard nation is looking for a sign, and we shall be given an

no sign, but one more little excerpt what he says, He doesn't say, you know, blind back in his eyes. You know, the woman really she was bleeding continuously. And she just mentioned, you know as to the spawn universe 2000 pigs I destroyed it. Not
only silent, is that of Jonah? For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the whale socialists, and then the three days and three has.
Is that the same?
That's what he says.
So you're asking what was the same?
So what was the sign
of Jonah Yunus?
That was his miracle.
So if you read the book,
you go to your Bible, there's only one page in the Bible.
For short chapters, one page, that's a book. That's called a book, one page. The whole Bible is hard to find one page in 1500 pages, hard to find.
But you don't have to go there. If you went to Sunday school, you will remember what I'm going to tell you now.
Listen to the ninevites when
he was told to go there and warn the people who repent in sackcloth and ashes.
is despondent, that this materialistic people, the evil wicked in the first generation of his time, they will not listen to him. They make a mockery of him. So he never he goes to Java, modern Java, and he takes away
that's what his book says. The Book of Jonah
says, storm and according to the superstitions of these people, anybody who runs away from his masters command plays such a trauma let's see so they began to question who can be responsible for such a trauma is not everything is not amazing? So Jonah realizes that he is a beauty man because he's running away from his masters Kumar.
God Almighty God doesn't go Nineveh and he's running away. So he volunteers.
ambiguity, man, what is my plan, and he's gonna send the boat to kill me. But in the end, people will die. Rather you take me in
This is no man, you know, you're such a godly person. Since you entered the boat, we can see you.
You might be wanting to commit suicide, and you want us to help you
do that. We have our own system of finding out right from wrong. That is called casting a lot is like tossing the coin.
And according to the system, of tossing the coin, it's a customer a lot. It came to the turn of Jonah that Jonah was the guilty man. So they took him in the room overboard.
I'm still reading the book of joy, that page one page, that you find this all in that little booklet.
So they threw him overboard. The question arises was he did was he alive?
The man had volunteered to make it easy for you. He volunteered. When men volunteers, you don't have to stretch
this is not if a man is interested in different races, no, you don't have to break his arm and he said no. So he was alive. They threw me into the seat Allah said yes. And the storm subsided.
Says the book. Perhaps it was a coincidence. The fish comes in Cabazon.
we tend to say you make a better ally.
Firstly, making convincing some of the men volunteer is a man volunteers when you don't have to do any harsh things when
the man says through so they threw him they don't have to do any half. He's alive. Fish Bob isn't alive from the fish's belly. The book says that he prayed to God for help. Do the people pray?
Pray? No. So he was JT from his mouth. And I
three days and three manifestation round the ocean better ally. Ally on the third day was on the seashore. Allah with this
for us, Jonah was the Son of man be Jonah is alive, according to a church was either dead or alive for three days and three nights.
In your language, your English speaking people in your language is that like Elijah
said he'll be like Jonah and you telling he was unlike Jonah? 1000 200 million Christians say that he was dead. Jesus said he would be alive.
I want to know whose life you are him your life? Are you 1000 200 million Christian?
Any Jehovah's Witness any Baptist and all bang God have you? Are you lying? Your body's dying? Are you alive?
Who's alive? Lastly, whose life you already knew that 1000 million Christians or Jesus was alive.
This is easy as always easy, simple, basic language like Jonah or Elijah. But the clever philosophers You know, it was a time.
milligram at a time.
This is a time you see Jesus was three days and three nights.
three days and three nights. He repeats the word three four times.
If a man is alive for three days a
miracle is you expect a man to be dead. And he's alive.
When you throw money into Regency
he died is not
efficient. And God is a man that the fishes no respecter of persons is a this is done Am I mistaken nicely, gently who mustn't get fed?
fish that's how a person gets caught. That's how it gets caught.
you're to die if you die, not America, three days and three nights.
Can you see is a miracle after miracle after miracle is one of the most outstanding
times over. Three times over. Everything is a miracle. Submariner Regency fish gobble
li li li.
There's no greater miracle than that. So Jesus says what happens to Jonah happens to me, I will be like Jonah. Jonah is a lie in Jesus's day.
He said he'd be like Jonah, you tell us
what you got.

For one a pioneer in this field of comparative stay. Without him a lot of things couldn't be possible initiative spirit.
Most of all, I like to take the hands of Lou Malik, who has been my children for many years. And he is now assisted me in this field of study. He has also assisted me in other areas of my life,
and my growth.
And I reflect on this. And it brings a point of giving power and the purpose of giving down and not just leaving the person that you've attended.
Because we as Muslims, we believe in the plan as soon as possible.
So as Muslims and having faith, which comes to two aspects, the laws and the ordinances and the practice of the laws and ordinances used to
make up our faith.
So we need to call on a loss of dialysis in the plan, he says, My duty
is to deliver a message and our duty is to call them to account. So as Muslims, we must deliver the message we must take upon ourselves to give the balance. And then inflamm Allah has given us the methodology in which
our Christian brethren and others, Islam and chapter 16 verse 25, and says call to lay below the wisdom and below expectation drawn with him in a mess manner.
Allah has also been joining us on
the path he says, and long those who say a lot has been gotten soon. So this is shushing kalon. And as Muslims, we must devise a plan
using Coronavirus premises to establish a methodology in delivering this message to our customers.
Because if we don't, if we don't get it down,
if we don't deliver the message, let's not use waste away we become like a piece of bread. If you ever sat a piece of bread on account after a while it dries up and we need to re
