Bismillah al Rahman al Rahim
the ILO in Kalimantan, Sava in benavente.
nama de la la
sharika de Shea and Willa tuff is about Donna Barden, urban, do Neela find our la fukushi, Vienna Muslim on soda, Cola, soda calamari,
my dear daughters, and my brothers and sons on the top.
It gives me great pleasure
to be here with you all this afternoon
to come and share with you my thoughts on some aspects of Islam.
And I was in a quandary. I was in a haze. I didn't know I was thinking, what should I say? What shall I say? What am I going to speak?
And as if God sent
the sister who preceded me here,
she read the verse that I read to you just now from the Holy Quran.
And that gave me an idea that look, this is the voice of God as a laboratory speaking to her. So look, speak about this, and I was greatly relieved.
You see, it has happened, that when the party generally whenever function start,
we get a party a good reciter to start the rest of
And then they call the speaker.
It was for Juma prayer, in my own city in Durban.
And Atari was called pro football talk. The carry was called he recited
and then they called me says now Mr. D that will speak.
So out of what the carry was reading from the Quran.
I repeated a verse
from his recitation.
He was reading
who will is Ursula Sula, who will CUDA.
What the mill Hawk Liza Hara who Allah de Nicola
Waka fabula shahida, that portion of the ruku he was reading. So I read that verse out of that full recitation. And I'm asking my audience, the sons of Islam. I said, in the past 24 hours, if any of you have heard that verse, please put up your hands.
I said in the past 24 hours, it was actually in the past four minutes. The everybody had heard, but I'm asking when to make it a little harder for them. I said look in the past 24 hours, anybody heard these words I repeat again.
And I repeated the verse again
and so on, and says, Please put up your hands and one hand went up.
One hand went up.
In a congregation Juma congregation, only one hand went up. And I recognized the owner of that hand,
that that person knew Arabic.
Because he knew Arabic. He knew what the carry was reading. Therefore he caught any retain he remembered what was read in the past 24 hours, the rest of them. Muslims, all born Muslims.
Young and old 199.9% they had never heard the word in the past 24 hours.
What does that mean?
It meant that this was just this pure sound music. recitation. We are listening Mashallah, how beautifully the diary reads.
We admire his recitation.
And he says, Mohan Allah Subhana Allah, we praise the tone. We praise the breath control how he carry in for two minutes carry up to some other basket when he starts reciting two minutes. His breath doesn't break, carries on, and on and on. If you or I were trying to compete with him, our breath would break down half a dozen times before he's finished one breath. So people exclaim Allahu Akbar Allah.
what makes what makes one to wonder what is the Allahu Akbar about? Allah is great about what the breath control
the breath is not the meaning what is the man telling you
as a people as a whole the Muslim world that the last color is like water on a duck's back, you know, you put water on duck's back, even in the rainy season, that that is dry, you know it has its feathers, the water just flows off. Similarly, Alaska also flows off from our backs from our friends from our minds, is just the sound, the music, the rhythm, we read the Quran for sooie sooie sooie blessings, blessings, and voila, I believe that we will get the sub.
But the real message that is being delivered is being lost. Therefore, we don't catch it because we don't understand the language.
We don't understand what is being read. Fortunately, this afternoon, our sister also translated it. She also mentioned that it is from Surah Nisa, she also mentioned that she started from verse 171.
So, it is an occasion for us that we can go home and check it out.
Check out these things, not that we distrust the speaker or my sister who was here, a little while back, we're not distrusting her. But if we go home and if we can check it up.
Going over it once more again, she has something maybe we caught something, some message of it and some of it we didn't. Because we might not have been familiar with it.
But if we go home and check it up in our own good time,
then that knowledge become becomes a part of us it becomes a part of our knowledge. And then when we start sharing with others, it really becomes our property
like this. It's very good you listen to a thought Mashallah You know, it was well delivered, you know, where the band was well spoken. And he was mesmerizing, the people all that kind of things can happen. But it's
it's a short term entertainment, you getting entertained.
You do get entertained, we all get entertained by our learned people, they come and entertain us.
So it is a very good idea
to go home and check up in the Quran at home. I take it that every Muslim has a Quran at home. But it's very difficult for the non Arab with non Arabs. I don't know how many Arabs are here. They might be very conversant with the Quran, I don't know. But the bulk of our people very, very difficult.
Our sister said Surah Nisa Surah Nisa,
a volume of this magnitude. This particular one is a translation 1920 pages.
Where will you find surah? Nisa
in the first instance of going check it that way.
But if you have a translation like this one, this particular one published on the subcontinent this part of the world in Lahore. It was first published in 19 135 are they around
by chef Mohammad Ashraf Kashmiri Bazar Lahore.
This translation is by Abdullah Yusuf Ali.
There is another one Mohammed Ali Kalyani. This is Yusuf Ali, Abdullah Yusuf Ali.
Now in this particular translation, it has advantages which no other translation has. And the advantage here is,
number one, that this is the only translation I've seen so far.
Which gives you a verse by verse translation.
For example, starting with Surah Fatiha, the opening chapter of seven verses, it begins
Bismillahi Rahmani roughen
exactly opposite that this will lie in Arabic. On the opposite side, you see in the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen. So all praises due to Allah, the cherisher and Sustainer of the worlds are rough man is
most Gracious, Most Merciful, Maliki omit the Master of the Day of Judgment. Er Kanaka Yana Stoney de Lune we worship and be alone we asked for help. In a Scirocco, Mr. King, the guide is on to the straight path sirata Levine and Anjali him The path of those on whom thou has bestowed that favors I will mark to be de la mala ball lien, not of those who earn line anger nor of those who go astray, verse by verse translation. And as you're reading
You can focus your attention on this translation, because as soon as you read this Mila Rahmani Raheem, at the end of that ayah that meaning you see a number, that number tells you that there is a commentary Tafseer at the bottom, this particular one will say 19 you look at number 19 at the bottom in smaller types gives you the Tafseer commentary, it tells you
what is Ramadan, it tells you what is rationing, what is the difference between these two and what are the relationship between the two. So, the your attention is focused on the eye a longer period of time. So, you digest that knowledge it's more easily digestible.
Because the Quran the whole Quran
is a book of Revelation Ye, but Allah, tala sin this ye
actually, that's how they came to him by telegrams.
It was not like stories like he said, you know, once upon a time, the Fox and the grapes or the wolf and the lamb, a once upon a time, there was a tailor in China, and he had a son called Allah dean at Alibaba and the 40, thieves, nothing like that. The Quran is a very concentrated book.
And Allah talks by telegrams and everybody is not very easy for everybody to understand telegrams, we might be liquid, we read books and all that with newspapers, but telegram to grasp the message of the telegram is harder.
And Allah is blocking by telegrams. You see, like, for example,
like for example, our Nivea Kareem Salah was engrossed in a discussion in a dialogue with the Christians of Iran. It was in Medina, the Christians of Iran,
outside Medina, they heard they were Christians, they heard that there is another Arab now in Medina and he's claiming to be in communion with the Almighty. He's claiming to be a prophet. So let's go and cross examine him let's find out what he knows. So they came to Medina and their how they were housed in the masjid of the Prophet must be the number be very simple structure.
plastered mud on the floor, mud walls, palm leaf fiber on the roof. Very simple structure. There were no hotels or no motels in those days. So they were housed in the masjid. They slept in the masjid. They act in the masjid. And they had the dialogue in the masjid. And when Sunday came
out when the VA Kareem offered the mercy the Saluki can offer your prayers even he was that tolerant.
But during the course of the discussion that was going on,
the spokesman for the Christian poses the question, see all right now tell us now,
among so many other things, oh, Mohamed, now tell us what is your concept of God.
So I will never be a Kareem Salas and he doesn't start like you and I, when we haven't got a really answer. We said Well, you see is as you try me out during question time, and you'll see it see where as you know, we are everybody everybody's fumbling for words for thoughts, trying to gather my thoughts and I go around the bush a little bit. Everybody goes around the bush, you know, Heather's going around and around beating around the bush till he says yes, this is the answer.
Our Nivea creme de la Sol he doesn't do that.
He is waiting for the Almighty. He wants to know, yobbery Allah What shall I say?
He is communing with Allah. nobody hears him. He is pressing so to see his spiritual buttons.
Trying to contact the hit computer. Follow him Mahfouz from the preserved tablet the knowledge is coming. He's pressing his spiritual buttons, no buttons there.
There are no buttons there but figuratively, figuratively, so to say he's pressing his spiritual buttons sabarimala What shall I say?
Comes the answer.
One who Allahu Ahad say he's allowed one and only allow summit God's eternal absolute lemony la Vela mula. He gets not noticeably gotten hula hoop one Aha, and there's nothing like him to him.
Now, once I repeat the lesson, what did I say?
asked people. What did I say is well, you said that there is only one Allah one God. What else
is God got no father, no son. What else can it is difficult because it's all concentrated stuff. It is so concentrated and the
message is so
it's so much pervasiveness so much is involved in this for short versus is like an ocean of theology, no knowledge of God and ocean
this four verses,
but in its concentrated form, you just read the meaning and you pass over on to something else, you lost everything you need to commentary and this one gives it to you explain to you that what is one and only when he says he does not be arranged according to him it is being addressed, but coming back to the school itself a class so life class was a suit of purity.
We are told, and I believe that if you read Surah ikhlas vccircle wala, three times you get the sahab of reading the whole Quran. Have you heard that before? Yes, we say when we started last year. So everybody starts with Surah Fatiha. Alhamdulillah and then we read surah Allah three times this rice was three times and we believe that Allah will give us the blessings as if we read the whole Quran
is a quite an amazing thing.
This Quran an encyclopedia, you read 12 lines as four times 312 lines 12 verses 12 is and you get the value of the whole Quran in blessings.
Doesn't want to think what is their innate?
Just four verses three times four threes?
And I get the blessings of the whole Quran. Why should it be so? What makes it so valuable? invaluable?
It's worth thinking.
You see the reason? I mean, I've been thinking, I've been thinking, I haven't had the chance of asking learned man, I'm not a learned man, people you know, make out make me out to be a great scholar and all that. Actually, I'm a furniture salesman, I've been talking, talking, and I've talked myself into talking, therefore I come and stand here before you. But I have not had the good fortune of going to a university secular or religious. The only time I going to university now is going to talk to them. I haven't had the chance of going and getting any benefit from them from beforehand.
So, just thinking about it, what makes it so valuable, in valuable.
So I find that this surah these four verses are the touchstone of theology
means a testing stone of theology, theology means the knowledge of God
is the touchstone. If you have this touchstone, you will never go wrong.
Any concept of God, any community, any religious group comes along to you and gives you a concept of God with these four verses as a touchstone, you can either accept or reject.
There is no theology on Earth.
That can confound you if you have these four verses in front of you, if you understand its meaning.
The person comes along
and he says,
like in Zoroastrianism, there is a God of good and there's a God of evil.
He says, will tell them who will love He is the one and only God that there is is not to the Christian say he is in a trinity three, one. This is no guru say he who Allahu Ahad is the one and only they think there are millions of God like the Hindu cousins says no, say he is the one and only God that there is negative all ideas of approval purity, two, three or many Out, out out. touchstone
let me let me say that he does not be getting his not be gotten the Christian say that Jesus is the only begotten Son of God is the no
negative idea any theology comes along. This is a touchstone. And they see God is like this, but it's like that he's so handsome is like old Father Christmas Santa Claus, sitting on some planet with his feet dangling onto the earth as his footstool. The heaven as this cannot be the loving Father in heaven says well I'm Yoku and there's nothing like unto him that can be imagined. So anything you think or imagined is not him.
This is the touchstone see the touchstone the jewelers uses.
You ladies are familiar with jewelers. You go along let's say your grandmother left some old jewelry and you take it to be 24 karat gold. And you want to have it remelted and into some modern design. So you go along and now what is this
My grandma's you know take heavy necklace.
So the guy, the jeweler, he rubs a part of that jewelry on to his touchstone is black granite, smooth black granite. he rubs on it. And he has samples of other gold. Nine karat gold karat 18 karat 22 karat 24 karat gold. That's how they value gold. How much purity is so he says this coloring that on that black stone of your gold, how much yellow gold is it is he guesses that this is about nine carat so he has a nine carat piece so he rubs on it next week. Is this the same as that? So he tells you, this is nine carat gold.
So not my grandma she couldn't have kept this and got this as her wedding present. You know, nine carat gold. So you go to another jeweler.
Try it sometimes go to another jeweler, say look this is pure gold 24 karat
22 characters they need to go to pack to get an extra something to make it a little harder. Others bull is very soft, it will bend very quickly. So this is 22 karat
sister he loves on his touchstone and he loves this this.
This one here is not in carat. It seems like a collusion going on between all the jewelers. You know, one follower rings up all the other jewelers. There's a woman coming along, you know, in black burqa, and you know, you must tell her if you will everybody know, you know he's not so he's got a touchstone and the firm that touchstone he knows nine carat, you go to 100 different jewelers, that is your nine carat nine carat nine carat nine carat is not 22 as we are imagining.
So this is the pitch tone. This is the touchstone whereby therefore Alaska puts this value upon it is that look, you read it four times, three times. In other words, you understand what you're reading,
not just the rattling off, three times the surah. Three times you read the surah that's how long does it take not even two minutes, not the rattling off, gives you that value. In other words, you have now embed that standard, you have got the touchstone of testing the knowledge of God whatever the guy tells you, you know, to what degree of acceptability it has touched on how many karat gold is these, that stone.
So, this is a very concentrated book we have seen. So this particular one gives you that it gives you the Tafseer commentary. Then this one has a very comprehensive index.
Just like a dictionary, right at the back.
Our sister said this is from Surah Nisa.
If you remember Missa Missa means women.
In your honor. Allah tala has revealed a chapter in his book in your honor. Surah Nisa chapter Nissan's women.
So she said Nyssa Will you gonna find this volume?
Very easy. And the N like a dictionary and look for Lisa, and i s a Missa? Oh, it tells you Nyssa chapter four. So chapter four is easy to find, because every page is numbered chapter 1234. up to 114. so far is easy to find. So verse number 171. Once we found chapter four 171 is easy to find. I had to find it there while I was sitting there. It gave me an idea. So now what shall I do that Mashallah. Very good. As if Allah has inspired my sister to say, look, talk about this. See? So make my task easy. Instead of thinking things are asking me what do you want to talk about what So look, man, I don't know. I don't know. And I was planning, planning something. But as if this was an
answer to my prayer, talk about this. So let me talk about that.
So the worse of a system began with was, there was no collusion between me and her. I don't even I wouldn't be able to recognize her in the audience. Well, I can guarantee you that.
That if I see like this as she comes again on the stage, I recognize that but in the audience, it will be difficult for me to go and pick her up to say who read it here. I don't know.
So she began to smell like Rahmani Raheem.
She started with polls say, oh, let me finish the first poll about kohala.
You see there when he was when he was question, oh Muhammad, what is your concept of God?
So I said he pressed so to say his spiritual buttons, I hope you my sisters understand. I don't care for my brother whether they understand or not what I'm talking about. As long as you understand it right? They will know buttons are last two buttons in two days. Well, ah, yesterday I lost when I was just independent and it went this afternoon. I tried to do the same thing. And now I don't want to take a chance with this third one.
These buttons see they get lost. My brother promised me that when we go to the hotel, he'll show it on for me.
trying to commune with Allah tala tala, what shall I say? Comes the answer, who say who Allah had He is Allah The one and only?
If you asked him.
He said, Why did you say say he's got one and only?
Look, if you have a question about anything, somebody asked you? What is six times six? If you have gone to school and learn your arithmetic years, your multiplication tables, you say six times six is that that is x? What is 12 times 12? Is 144. You don't say say 144? You don't say 36?
No, because you have the answer. What is two times two? producing? Four. You didn't say say four? You know you don't say say four? You say?
Why is this man saying say he's got the one and only because because he is not talking? He's not talking? The words you're hearing from his lips.
They're coming out of his mouth.
But they are not his words. He's asking his communing
with Allah What shall I say? Comes the answer to him say He is Allah The one and only. So he says say He is Allah The one and only now you see, these are not his words. It goes to prove also that this is the Why is a revelation. When you read the chapter four verses, there is no explanation there. In the Quran itself, the tough season, the Mufasa is not able to explain what happened and what not what I'm telling you now, but there is nothing there in the Quranic text to tell you what was going on.
That Muhammad was in Medina and the Christian deputation has come from Iran and the Prophet house them in the masjid and Abbey, and you know, he fed them and he looked after them, and they had a discussion for three days and three nights nothing. And while this discussion was going on, the spokesman for the Christian poses the question and Mohammed, you know, he presses spiritual buttons, and he got the answer. And this is what he said,
is not all day nothing is dead, Allah, Allah will allow some lemonade Valenzuela
on a hot side, and then back again to normal is that you see that this is our concept of God on a different level. It's all Arabic, but this Arabic is something different, like a machine gun fire
for a low summit, let me let me let me say, this is our concept of God.
This is I wanted to share that with you.
That this is how the Quran came to him, in word form, what he received, it made indelible impression on his heart and mind.
And he had this thing scribed by the scribes write it down because he wasn't
he was unlearn it and let it and it was preserved on family fiber, shoulder blades of animals and skins and kept in the chest and in the hearts and minds of men memorized. This is how originally the Quran was preserved for us. And this is the Quran that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam he left for us.
So, coming back to the subject.
Again say I want to say tell them who
Calcutta people have the book,
who are the people of the book
is that the Jews and the Christians. They are the people of the book, meaning they had a scripture
they had certain region books
and they claimed that they were a learned people as against the Arabs, the Arabs were and only people and unlimited people, and only profit was sent to them. Amazing.
And me profit. One who can read and write comes with only people who can read and write and
This is given a book
that puts to shame the wisdom of the learner.
To show you that this is not his work, this is the work of this is Alaska.
He couldn't have done it Muhammad could have no man could have done a job like this
purely on a physical level, material level. You see this is an encyclopedia.
The Quran is an encyclopedia 114 sutras
given by Allah tala to His Prophet, the Holy Prophet Muhammad Salah, shall
we say, this is a revelation.
The outsider, the enemy says, No, this is Muhammad's work.
Mohammed wrote this book, but he said, No, he wasn't. He couldn't read or write this. Well, maybe. But wasn't he a great orator? Wasn't he a great thinker?
could he not have rehashed what he heard in his environment, from the people about the Jews and Christians and about Jesus and about Abraham and Moses and about Yusuf Ali Salam? could he not what the story is heard, rehash it in a beautiful language.
As a great thinker, as a great orator couldn't have done it.
He could have.
So you see,
knowing full well we know that this is not his word. Allah Allah testifies to it in the Holy Quran. This is 1 million tieguanyin Hawa. He does not speak from his own desire in Hawaii law. It is no less than an inspiration is unknown to him. A llama Lucia De Luca is taught by one mighty empower. It's not his, but the enemy says this is his handiwork. Right? For a moment. I tell you agree with him.
agree with him for a moment for a moment, knowing full well that this is not his work
is not the work of man.
So all right, I agree with you that Muhammad wrote the book. In that case, this is a one man job.
He's got a degree in that case is a one man job. He doesn't say that Omar, Abu Bakar and whisman and Ali and Muhammad they all sat together and they read they wrote this and rehash it and they planned it says this is one man job.
It's not his job, but since the enemy says it is his right. This is his work his handiwork. It's a one man job. You agree, and they must agree. It's a one man job.
I said, let's have a look at your book. See, I forgot to put it in my bag. I would have shown it to the Bible. So you see, this is your book, the Bible. It has 73 books that have the Roman Catholics. The Bible is 73 books inside.
You know those booklets put together to make an encyclopedia about the Bible. They wrote the protest and will have 66 books
in 66 little booklets, Genesis, Exodus, Leviticus, Numbers, Deuteronomy, Joshua, no, no, no and Matthew, Mark Luke, john 66.
As those 66 books were written by 40 different authors, right.
40 different guys went to make this one book.
This is one man job purely on his physical level, just the material aspect of it. This one man puts into shade your 40 authors. The greatest writer among your 40 authors is Paul. Paul St. Paul, as he wrote 14 of the 27 books of the New Testament, more than half
14 out of 27 books are written by one man Paul and all the Paul's books put together is not this is not this amount not even this not even quarter inch thick.
Says Come on, tell me now. Tell me, let's say on the very value that you put in a one man job against 40 this one man puts into shade all your 40 different authors. And he's not just filling up any kind of rubbish studies fairytales he's giving you the elixir of life guidance for this world in the hereafter.
Everything pertinent for your needs.
You read the other thing, so many things. We have no time to go into it.
So the address is Yahoo al Qaeda
66 books. This is this is all from God's right. You are illiterate people.
That's our laptops to them. He must learn at people. How can you go off like that? How can you say this as illiterate people poor
people of the book
lotta goofy Dini calm. He says do not go to extremes in your religion.
Don't go to extremes in your religion.
Look, we are not made to sail leave us alone. We are Muslims. We are good people we pray five times a day and we don't drink and we don't gamble and we don't dance. You know, we are very charitable people leave us alone. No, no, this is not Islam.
You do all these things Mashallah. But there's something more than that is required from us people who are going wrong when off the track,
uttering blasphemy, blasphemy is poofer against the prophets of God against the law, it is our duty to rectify them, call them to the right path. So Allah commands us to tell them yaalon kita all Jews and Christians, they refuse to Jews and Christians latha Hulu foeniculum do not go to extremes in your religion
and to interfering with them. Yes, but only my own business. This is our business. Allah has made us the torch bearers of light and learning to the world. He has appointed as the quantum hydrometer
that you are the best of people evolved for mankind, for mankind, what makes us the best of people? Because we say we are size and appearance and patterns and what and what not an era you're a Nigerian, what makes you the best of people.
He gives you the qualification the standard that makes as the best of people is the moon and the moon car because you enjoy what is right and you forbid What is wrong with meaning Nabila and you believe in Allah, if these are your qualifications, then you are the best of people.
Then if you are the best of people that honor that privilege imposes upon us certain responsibilities. And among the responsibilities is that we should share this honor with other people and the fittest people to receive this sharing are the Jews and the Christians because they've already prepared to receive the message, profits after profits were sent to them.
I won't go into that aspect. Allah says in that verse, well, I'm gonna handle kitabi Lacan. But if the People of the Book meaning the Jews and the Christians, if they hearken to this message, it will be better for them in others will be better for you. Muslims will be better for you if they listen to this message, minimal Muna among them, there are means good people, faithful people, sincere people, among them. among the Jews, there are good people among the Christian there are good people, Allah says,
Well, after all, Mufasa Kuhn, but the majority of them are perverted transgressors, two types of people, good people, and the guy who was rebellious wanting to put up a fight with you want to steal your children, calling you names want to send you to hell.
abusing the Prophet abusing the Quran abusing Islam
how to approach them both. You can discount anyone the good man how to approach him and the devilish fellow how to tackle him.
But our subject getting back to our subject,
Lata houfy Dina come, he said do not go to extremes in your religion. The Jews and the Christians we are going to extremes with regards to the personality of Jesus Christ has that is Elisa
wa Taku Allah Allah halal, Huck, and don't say anything about Allah except the truth.
In namale mercy, most certainly the Messiah, he said no Maria Ma, Jesus, the son of Mary Rasulullah is the Messenger of Allah wa Kalamata who.
And the word proceeding from him. Alcohol Illa Maria Maroon whiskey bestowed upon Mary and a spirit proceeding from him for me to be la hora de so believe in Allah and His messenger.
I'm requested that at 615 we should allow a 15 minutes break for Margaret. And as such, there's only My watch is only two minutes to go
at him, you can have a little extra long breath. Two minutes extra won't do anybody any harm. This is a request made by our sister here and as such now I give you that permission for this break of 15 minutes as requested. Thank you very much.
So my dear sisters and brothers, Allah commands as to tell the Jews and the Christians
la oficina calm, do not go to extremes in your religion. The matter in which this verse was revealed about the matter was about the personality of healthy Salah Salah. See whether the Salah Salam was born miraculously mojica without any major intervention. allama created him.
The Jews, because they didn't want to believe in him. They insinuated that because he couldn't point to a man saying this is my father.
created a rumor spread a story, that a Roman soldier by the name of Panthera, they also give me a fictitious thing. They just constructed out of thin air, but now they spread it sounds more authentic once is a Roman soldier, by the name of Panthera, he raped Mary Maria Melissa, he raped and this illegitimate child was given off as the Son of God. One extreme.
The other extreme was of the Christians. They say that because he's got no earthly father, his father is gone.
And he is the only begotten Son of God aka aloka. java beta,
has gone to another extreme. One goes to one extreme in saying that he xlsm is illegitimate.
hassanzadeh hasta la mas Allah Allah which is bulldozer. Carranza, and the other say his God because he's the son of God, both going to extremes. So Allah tells us to tell them, don't go to extremes. Voila. Taku Allah Allah Hillel, Huck, don't say anything but I'll accept the truth with regards to mercy, Christ in namale mercy who received no Maria Mata Rasulullah most certainly mercy. The son of Mary Isa, the son of Mary is a messenger of God, Allah
wa Kalamata, who and a word proceeding from him from Allah. Allah kaha Illa. Maria, what do we mean bc bestowed upon Mary and the spirit receding from him? Finally Billa Hebrew. So believe in Allah and His Messenger Jesus that He is Allah messenger Allah Rasool Allah, that's all don't go to extremes is neither what the Jew say, nor what the Christians say. He is a messenger of God. And his mother was a virtuous woman make ora tea, she was a saintly woman, and she was not what the Jews say or insinuate.
Now this is the duty imposed by Allah upon us to clear the atmosphere.
And these verses
generally we all read in the Quran we do hot macarons in Ramadan, especially the Muslims is very particular. Some say we made five five patterns Some say we made 10 items, some say we made 30 items.
We finished the Quran five times we finish it 10 times we finish it 30 times
knowing that the Quran is not for finishing up
what did we learn? salvati did
I believe in that? There is a hadith which says that every litre of the Quran when you utter you get 10 1010 swabs Nikki.
When we say Alif la me, I wanna be a Kareem sallallahu Sallam said this Alif Lam is not a word. There are three letters Alif Lam Meem 10 1010 three, Sabah nichia, Hamid, unperfected, dismal Lahore Rahmani Raheem,
come to let us know 19 x Oh, no. Who cares 197 milk a
But this is besides our book of instructions. And Allah is giving us instructions. Most specially in the salad.
Every one of us ought to be harvested Quran, every Muslim. In other words, everything that Allah tells you we should remember. And the best way to remember is to memorize everyone in the office.
But Allah knows that we are not all capable of achieving that Feat. Everyone. We are 1000 million Muslims in the world. Can every 1000 million of them be having operands is not possible is not practical. So Allah, Allah, He gave us a system of salaat
to make up for this that you can be happy as everyone so five times a day, every day of the year through the mouth of the magazine, we are being given the message. For example, in the Missouri we made just now if the mom was reading these
what our sister read and which I am repeating
Yahoo lol kita La Villa Kalima.
Full Yala, kita la De Luca de la Taku Allah Allah Allah Allah and on and on and on and on law goes into ruku Samuel lovely man hamidah Allah
Subhana Allah Subhan Allah Allah, Allahu Akbar. And again Surah Fateha and something else he did, and again we repeat.
Now in the salon we hear again and again parts of the Quran being recited among them are these verses cool Yeah, hello kita
kita lo con. Oh, Allah Taku salesa Oh, la caca for Allah. Allah will mercy
to whom a This was addressed,
is not addressed to us.
Unless not talking to your to me.
When he says well, aku sala de Lima Kimani saying Allah Taku Salah sa don't say Trinity, Father, Son, Holy Ghost Moscow, Caterham salami, we are 1000 million. Is there a single Muslim who says I believe in the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost? Or I believe in Allah and Muhammad and gibreel that these three are not three Gods but one God is a Muslim like that? No.
Then who are we talking to? Who is Allah talking to Who is the man talking to his Salah, and there's nobody saying Salah is the
people of the buko Jews and Christians
up with your assata
to get out from
school, okay, Who are you calling?
You say follow
Suppose I came to this hall knowing that this is a moonwalk Hall. And this would be a lecture here. And so let me go and rehearse practice. So I come along and get a mic and get started. There's nobody in the hall. So Mr. Chairman, ladies and gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to be here employed and talking away and talking away to an empty hall and somebody passing by So what's going on here? The petersons this guy here this guy that did that fellow man in his talking to who said we don't see anybody

reason nobody say that Allah has Atlanta data Jana, and you reading verses condemning it, and there's nobody there.
Who are you talking to? In English, this is talking to the wall, the wall
Are you mad?
You see, this is unless instructions given to x through the mouth of the man, that we may go and look for these people who say three in one who say that Allah has a son who said that Jesus is the illegitimate child of Mary, the other who says that Jesus is God Almighty in human form because the Son of God, we have to find them out. That's the purpose. But it's all like water and that's back again. Water on duck's back by the train with a locker.
You see, the whole message is lost. We are we are we are still the best of people. In our Brotherhood in our piety.
Never saw variety in our charities. There is not another nation on Earth a religious group that can show a candle to us to say we are better than you. We have a lot of shortcomings. We fight over little little things especially a woman from they're looking for trouble all the time. They were so much energy that they can't see the enemy The truth is easy to fight the
and this can hit this young man here
we are ever ready for a fight? Because the big Johnny the giant of communism, I can't tackle the Russian
I can't do the Chinese I can't tackle the American I can't tackle but I can tackle my brother now and I'm all
I can do
to make it
this is the Muslim in general busy busy busy is busy about
the standard size How can they yes yes fit in America Taco Bell
Mashallah standard size
America rollin he should have printed because he said he was trimming the mustache he didn't just shave the mustache. Keep the beard but shave the mustache
busy busy busy.
Eyes take associate there are rules going on in South Africa Muslims Muslims they bashing each other's heads for this. It was worse apparently. Yes. They say how can I salami carry any tourney
imaginable because they're not listening to instructions. Allah saying find these people. This is the program this is the data materials that we are supposed to put into our computer. Alice computer given to us free put this in.
And whatever is put in is going to come out. The American say garbage in garbage out. That's the technical term for putting data material in the computer. Yo busara Jagga
is natural. Whatever your we are programmed if there is only things gonna come out, you go to an institution with the teacher salami, salami, salami, you come out saying talking about Salome, Salome salami, the other one says,
He comes out says, Tabitha,
this is programming. And we are programmed with these things to fight among ourselves. Instead of fighting the enemy. Allah is giving you instructions to identify your enemy tomorrow.
People who are coming to see the children and is giving you five times a day instructions. But as I said in the Juma mercy Juma, I
am asking, Is there anyone who who this verse in the past 24 hours, and I'm talking about the sons of Islam, the fathers of Islam,
in a Juma congregation. This is how good we are one man who knew that this verse was recited only four minutes ago, and he remembered the rest it was water and that's back. Now, how can we rectify the situation?
I like his instructions and nobody carries it out.
So unlike tools that people like that are fasik over the transgressors, a lot orders among the Jews in the Christian there are good people, and the majority of them are perverted transgressors, we we read the Kalamata Shahada by implementing the message of Allah we are perverted transgressors.
Reason The reason is our system of education in the first instance system is wrong.
The system of our education the way we learn to read the Quran is wrong. It was a beautiful system we are following it was a system for new converts names hamanaka D.
for new converts the system we are following is for new converts naomasa monokey.
A person from the outside who doesn't know anything about Islam about Arabic anything he becomes a Muslim.
Mr. knows nothing and he or she is converted. Now are you going to teach that person Arabic as a language? No, because you just have done well because the language How can you teach that person? So you're going to teach this is it this is Alicia. This is bad. This is Tom. This is
learning the alphabet. Then you see this is I live in this is fat House about Alexa Ba ba ba ba ba that's how I learned when I was young on the subcontinent. Elizabeth is a barber is a badass at massage in Georgia. That's how I learned. I don't know how do people learn here in Pakistan? I haven't had the chance.
Maybe you say Elif Fatah and Ba ba ba I don't know. But that's how I learned
The Arabs trade is the thought our forefathers ancestors two to 400 years ago my people I come from the west coast of India
the place called surah is a little above Bombay is a small part Arab sailors were coming along to battle the dates the Muslim clock the turmeric the Cameron for our Muslim clock, and we did business and in the process my ancestors the bunny as the Gujarati Hindus
as peculiarities can show Saracho, that's my language you see. So, the money has more or the same language. The same language developed by Patel same language, good Gujarati speaking people who speak Gujarati. So these Arab traders, my ancestors saw that they were good people. So, this will have you also want to become one of you this is very easy, give me a hand and they gave the hand is the VP Shahada. So what is that? So say Lai, ilaha illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah. So, this La la la
la, do you see the P right. You must write you must write you mustn't be right whatever you say Right, right, right. You must make Salah ha namaha like this, like this, you make salad wash your face this that that and make salad like this like that.
What you do is a look at certain sutras. So they taught our fathers by some
Bismillah say Bismillah Bismillah
Bismillah Rahmani Raheem Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem. So he learned our answers Bismillah Al Rahman, Al Tango al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen in and on in a few small Surah saccharide Now you can join us anytime we can we pray you join us we became Muslim. So what about the children or will be one sailor behind one of the workers in the ships with even behind the children?
So he thought the children leave Bay gene
and this is a la la la, la la la la la la la
la la la la, la
la la la la la la sassicaia. Mashallah, now you can read this
little law Hey, Rob Bill alameen.
Calgary Mashallah beautiful system for new converts.
That was two to 400 years ago.
But my grandfather was treated as a new convert. My father was treated as a new convert. I was treated as a new convert. My son was treated as a new convert and my grandson will be a new convert. Now mussulman system for new convert my grandchild same, and my great grandchildren will still be the same. Amazing. We never become Muslims. We remain new converts.
Some of us
will be boasting. hamari badaga Bahasa musalman, Hazara borras Masha originally you know when the people came to sahabas we see him Allah
Mashallah, but as you know the system that you are reading the Quran you're learning to read the Quran is a system for new converts has our various mathematical
and he took this to nobody.
This is what beats be that this is an independent state Islamic state of Pakistan. And we have giants of the intelligence giants of learning. The amount of books that people give me. You know, the looting, I had to make a special and accompany baggage 45 kilos I had to send me to South Africa. This morning.
45 kilos overweight luggage. I had to pay 1800 rupees to get that thing out.
Why you are loading me up this weekend. You must read this very good. So
with apologies to my brothers and sisters, look uncle This is very good. This will give you this How can I say no?
I will never be said and if a brother or sister he gives you something in goodwill. Take it is an act of goodwill. Take it so I take but how much can I carry? And I have a new moon so I have to get rid of this surplus baggage and still it's coming and it's still to come
Yes, the amount of books that are written on the subcontinent in Pakistan,
The place types and types of books. But I said the first book, Alaska, we have it. Everybody has it, but it's a closed book. Meaning as far as the message is concerned, nobody moves the message.
Why aren't we activated? To do something because we don't know the instruction.
We read instruction, we rattle off an instruction in a languages we don't understand like in Chinese, for example,
Odin Zulu. If you were taught to read without understanding
100 million Pakistanis. We are all learning the Quran to read the Quran. Like a parrot.
Like a parrot. We read it. And some of us beautiful elocution. recitation, it moves us to ecstasy in tears when you listen to the recitation. But the man himself he knows not a word. Or what he's reading he doesn't know. So we complain is he is
this guy, whatever Haji
of the purpose here
is stealing sisters in the public in a sister of her inheritance. Because her husband will eat it up. So he's eating it up.
Double Javi namazi Farnsworth co
five others 10 times a day the guy prays and he doesn't think twice about robbing his brother of his rights. He doesn't. Why? What makes it so? hypocrites? No.
People, people, but they don't allow Alibaba to speak to them
is a closed book.
And the answer to our problems this recitation this addressing talking to the wall
like math people. This is not like talking like math people.
that's what he was reading. For example, in the Salah after Surah Fatiha Allah Xena Mahmoud
Danny boo casilla medicine,
you believe a man will avoid as much of suspicious as possible.
Because in most cases suspicion is a sin. By law justice who and do not spy upon one another. Well ah bah, bah bah. And do not backbite or slander one another. Are you?
Is there a single one of you who say hey, camara pica goes curry? Is there a single one of you who's prepared to eat the meat of his dead brother?
Allah is asking the question, if you understood
is there a single one of you tomorrow may?
Allah is asking us through the bam,
And nobody's answering.
We should all reply La la la, la la la quinta, Jamar s. But no. In the system Allah gave us we can interject the man.
You have to listen.
So Allah, Allah poses the question, and he himself is the answer. Because he knows you can answer he doesn't want you to open your mouth.
So he poses the question, is there a single one of you who's prepared to the meat of his death bada? He says fuckery to move who need to make arahato de neige evil at the heart rate. He wouldn't like it. Even cannibals don't do that. cannibals. People who eat other human beings even baby don't do that will love to meet my needs. But not his brother's meet and his brother who's dead carrion. Even cannibals don't do that.
illallah wa Rahim even now Allah is Forgiving most merciful Jehovah safaga boom do it anymore
as soon as they come out with the Mashallah
you know he can read through his nose
This is when I was in you know people were praising people who have a defect in the news they can't be clear this
so the things a great feat haha Mashallah knock us apart.
to what extent we go foolishness in
yes we pray all that what is the same is water and that's back to us when you come out. He says you know the man you know he delivered a very visual yes but you know he smoked so many cigarettes is that when you're talking about you know but you see the man you know he's he's so happy he's got a llama can
belong to another school is
endlessly backbiting slandering eating our dead brother's meat because the brother is not there to defend himself. That's like his dead brother.
We are eating our dead brother's meat all the time and that sisters meat all the time. And we have developed it created a taste for it. Like we Chili's Chili's news Chicka Chicka chicka
unnatural, but we love it. I love it too. You know when the thing is new Lucien says incipit
Shall we die is not is not a natural michiana naturally, but we cultivated this for it. chutney taco smell, you know what you do to enslave your husband? You know what, what you do? So
we have cultivated a taste for eating our dead brothers meet our dead sisters meet. Because when Allah is talking to us, nobody's hearing
we only hear the sound, the wisdom, the music of what is being read, not the message. Why are we listening the message because the system, the system that was given to us created for us was a system for new converts, and we have not yet become Muslims can summon Hey, so when Allah is talking to us, we must understand what he's telling us. But nobody cares. And the irony is that the learner being of Pakistan,
I just can't understand the learner in South Africa I
am trying to talk to as if
I'm talking to deaf ears. Nobody listens. I say, look, this system tells me now what's wrong. There's something wrong with me and telling you this system is a beautiful system for new converts. Not for me, not for my child.
He's listening. He won't answer. But he carries on.
Like a donkey. He's he's not listening. He's carrying on. He listens to you. But he carries on.
I don't know, even five daughters of Islam. Those people they're the men on the top there I tell you,
I see no hope in them.
I say no. They have been leading the community, the nation. They established Pakistan, they made sacrifices. But there's something wrong in their thinking. They are enslaved in their mentality to the values and the island. He doesn't want you to become learned.
Because as soon as you know, you'll be asking questions. And we don't like people asking us questions. It makes me to think you pose me questions, problems, that means you're creating problems for me now, to find my way out, is not pleasant.
But at the same time, I'm very clear that I'm knowledgeable. I know what I'm talking about. So every time a question is thrown at me, is making me to think and there is a saying that if you want to make a person to hate you make him think
this is one of the hardest of things making a person to think if you ask him to do half acre of land
his paper to turn the soil Upside down Upside down. He can do it. No worry.
But you create one little problem for him. He goes berserk. He wants a fight. Don't make it.
I hope and I pray that my daughters are not of that nature. You will be able to inshallah, you know, you do a little thinking and it's a look, something has gone wrong, and you can change the men men forget Oh, you can.
As I was quoting yesterday, I don't know when I was quoting to somebody that women can do anything. The Frenchman says the Frenchman says women can do anything because they govern those who govern everything.
They will look my house, my wife
and the boss. She's so frail. My wife, if you see her.
We are married for about 40 years now.
She's still the same. She hasn't lost a pound of weight and she hasn't gained a pound 40 years.
If you look at her, as compared to me, if I go hard, she can go away.
That's what do you think she's tough. She's a farmer's daughter. So she has been working hard but
From the looks, you might be tempted to make a mistake.
But she's ruling well she's ruling.
Without her sympathy and kind permission, I couldn't be here. I can't, I can't leave.
Without her cooperation. She says go, I go.
Of course when I go back, I try to make a fortune. I am her slave. I do everything to appease her that you know, she's happy, happy, happy, so I can get another break. So actually calling Mina line, yes. Then she says, Well,
actually, she's ruling, she's ruling anything, everything in the house what she wants, he gets it. What she wants to cook, she cooks. So look at this, like, this is all right, you take it you eat it is good for you. Look, this is so you have the art Allah has given us. You don't have to fight with physical strength. No. But with the tongue with persuasion with softness, you can rule the man. And there's so many ways of captivating him and enslaving him. And one way is through the stomach, through the stomach. You see, I read a book.
A second book I came across the title of the book was feed the boot
was to brew generic generic Coca Cola
it says Nice, nice recipes, you know, that device has beautiful recipients. In other words, now.
Once you do the one by one thing, going to the hotels, eating the streets, you know,
enslave him and he can be enslaved. This is his nature. Allah made us you know, we are strong it has given us our Yes, you are the boss back.
As the saying goes, You know, I think Shakespeare said it. She Stoops to Conquer. She Stoops to Conquer, she humbles herself. And he said, What shall we do? I said,
Well, you want to go, you want to go to my relations or your relations. You can see she has her relations and mirror my cities where are situated near to my people. But every time I'm going to hurt people
why I want to make her happy. She's making me happy, she's actually enslave me, but I'm the boss. The whole world thinks I'm the boss.
With these few words, I'm very, very grateful for this opportunity. And I hope that at question time you don't ask me.
Such embarrassing questions that, you know, I might feel uncomfortable with these words as it is our love for this opportunity. And I look forward to further opportunities of talking and sharing with you my thoughts just at the law.
Ladies and gentlemen, now we are not sorry, ladies, you are allowed to ask questions. We have a mic here in the center. And every person is allowed to ask only one question at a time, you will ask the question and then go back to your seat before you are answered. This is if the gems want to ask a question they are allowed to write down the question, give it to one of our volunteers and send it down.
My name is Asha Pandit. But I'm a Muslim, even though my surname is pandas. What I wanted to ask was that I study in, in the St. Joseph college and it's many Christians are there. When I asked him, Why do you believe in this Trinity, they say that? Suppose you take three drops of water, and you just combine them together they become one I don't know how to answer back to them. So what should I say to them for water? No, no, this father is different. Son in the mind is different. And the Holy Ghost is whatever it is. But it's different different different pictures.
In the name of the Father and the Son or his kabita and the Holy Ghost, Google quotes, whatever it is. So there are three distinct mental pictures in the mind when you say with your mouth, in the mind, they are creating different images. When I say in the name of the Father, I'm asking how you think of the son.
When you say and the son Do you think of the Holy Ghost? It says no. So So can you see the unnecessary disease. a lunatic is thinking of the Father but he's thinking of his son is the father thing or the son.
This is taking the name of his wife but his thing is his daughter is his wife. Now
So, this mother is different, his wife is different. His daughter is different. You can mix up when you say, mother, wife, daughter. Three, there are females, no doubt, but they are distinct different things. So, where is this unity?
In your mind as a yoga three? This is no.
You see the person that somehow or other he's got to do if he says yes, it implies that is worshiping three gods. So it says no, he's got only one. So do me a favor.
Say I did it. You see, I am a guide to the mosque in the Juma must return guide. When tourists visitors come, I take them around. I explained to them what goes on?
And I answered the questions.
So there was a European, South African, European and African, the people who are ruling us,
with his wife and children, they came to us in school holidays, to look at the mosque. So as I explained, everything about taking up the shoes making will do how we make Salah. Then question they asked question. He says this god of yours, this Allah, what does he look like?
Because we see nothing there. I see some caligraphy this and caligraphy there. But there's no picture, no image, no statue, nothing.
And there's nothing in the mosque in the musty.
What does this allow us look like? As more? We have new mental pictures. We don't visualize board. When we stand up for prayer. We pray like this as an idea Kareem sallallahu wasallam he said, Kanaka Tara, when you stand before him, you stand as if thou sees him, though you see him not he sees you as that is the nearest we come into our relationship with Him approximation to him. We do not think of him in any form, shape or size, laser chemistry shape, there is nothing is like the likeness of him that can be imagined.
This is no, you must have a certain mental picture.
So that give me an idea. As soon as maybe you have
as it when you pray, how do you pray?
And I answered for him. See, I'm posing the question.
When you pray, how do you pray, as you pray like this, in the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Ghost, right?
As it when you say in the name of the Father, you are thinking of
old Father Christmas, sitting on some planet with his feet then you want to go that is footstool. And the heaven is this cannot be called biblical from the Bible. All this thing i'm quoting, I'm only taking from third language, the wordings are all from there. The Heaven is this cannot be the earth is his footstool, the heaven. Millions and millions of times bigger than than men for something like a man. When you say God the Son. So what are you thinking of a price bull? Or a fatwa?
No, nothing like that. As a handsome young man, blond hair, blue eyes, handsome features blue eyes, like what you saw in the King of kings. I'm telling you. This is a film called King of kings, Jesus. They have time Jesus, Jesus of Nazareth, Jesus films, they have seen these films. So you think of him in one of these Jeffrey Hunter was acting, Geoffrey hunter with blond hair, blue eyes, you know, handsome features straight nose, not with a poly nose, you know? Not, not with that. A straight nose like a German or like a Norwegian or a Swede or an Englishman, not like a Jew with their nose. You know what Jesus looks like? There isn't any Holy Ghost as a What are you thinking of? As a Holy
Ghost you did in the book, something that came like a dove, like a Buddha from heaven, in the shape of a doubt. And when Jesus was baptized in the River Jordan by john the baptist, or something, something that came in flames of fire at Pentecost, I said that picture is not very vivid, but the picture is there, as if you have three distinct mental pictures, the father is different, the son is different and the Holy Ghost is different. This is no.
See if the man is trying to impossible he can. He says no.
As a look, do me a favor.
Please close your eyes. And when I say in the name of the Father, and the Son, and the Holy Ghost, honestly, I want you to tell me how many mental pictures you have. So when I posed the question
the children school children who are within
the family mother, father and mother, we are school children. So the children thought they had the answer is so clear, so vivid, as in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Ghost as a home
Take mental pictures have you got so the children does it all together.
And the most gray vibrated equity because it was empty at the time. Three, and it looks could kill the old would have been dead, because the parents didn't want to hear such words coming out from the children's mouth. And this was all godsend. So I'm telling them, I said, Look, you know what Jesus said? He said, except he is one of these little ones, you shall not enter the kingdom of God. So what we want you to be as silly as they are sometimes as naughty as they are sometimes. No.
Jesus said you must be as simple and as sincere as they are. If the child sees three pictures, he will tell you he sees three pictures, he is not afraid that he will get caught out or what or what not is honest. So I said, you see another child can see but you can't because you don't want to admit. So it's a sickness. Allah tells us in clearcut language in the Quran, Vallarta kulu thalassa. Don't say Trinity into Kira Lacan, this is stupid, it'll be better for you in the Malala. Why, for your allies, when Allah is not three in one, and you know, one in three, and Jesus never thought this is not in his book, The word Trinity is not to be found in the Bible, the whole Encyclopedia of
66 books, the word till it is not the
amazing thing, that fundamental of their faith, that word itself is not there. But as you know what that word is in the Quran, amazing. Religion, this is not the word Trinity is in the Quran. But the Trinity is not in the Bible. But in the Quran. It says one lack of kulu salasar to say, Trinity, but the Trinity is there in the Quran. The Bible even hasn't got that. I hope, you know, you get some of these tapes of mine. And it's continuously these things are going on, you know, with the Christians coming along and posing questions, and we are answering, you can learn something. There was at one time. One of my meetings, I went to the cape province, in South Africa, we have four provinces, like
Pakistan is four provinces, we have four provinces. So I was in one of these provinces, and I was lecturing at a place called Weinberg Town Hall in the cape. And at question time, one white man, he came up questioning and he was asking deep searching questions. And every question I answered, he used that to develop another question. That answer he developed another question.
And from this questioning, I realized that he is no ordinary person. There's no easy answer, you develop a question from the answer again, you develop another question. So I whispered to the chairman. So please ask the gentleman who he is. We'd like to know, that is asking such deep and searching questions. So the chairman asked, and he said, I am Professor fun, the mother from the University of Stellenbosch, the
headquarters of this Dutch Reformed Church institution, and I'm the professor of theology.
Now we know his words, he is a great man, big man, the biggest man in the Stellenbosch University and theology.
And after a few question, a color gentleman colored is a mixture between black and white. You know, like your Anglo Indians, you call them a mixture between the Asiatic and the European, you call them Anglo Indian, they African and white mixture, we call it colored.
So there was a Catholic priest, he came up. This is Mr. deedat. You people don't believe in the Holy Trinity. But what have you to say about the first episode of john chapter five, verse seven, where he says, there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the wood, and the Holy Ghost, and these three are one.
It was, it's there in his book. He said, what about this is there in my Bible?
Fortunately, Professor fundamentals day. So I got up to answer I said, Look, we are very, very fortunate that Professor fundamenta is here with us today. So whatever I'm going to tell you, I'm not pulling a fast one on you. The professor will confirm whether I'm speaking the truth or not. As a professor, you see the verse Yes. quoted, for the first episode of john chapter five, verse seven. This is in the Roman Catholic version of the Bible. He said, yes, it is in the author is King James Version of the Bible. He said, Yes, but as is now taken out from all modern translation as a fabrication.
fabrication as an interpolation, as an adulteration is thrown out, is not there anymore. Is it true? He said, Yes. As you see, the reason is that this Trinity in the ancient manuscript, this was was not there. But a certain vigils of perhapses in the sixth century in his manuscript
Marginal note for his own edification, a marginal note in his own handwriting. But when they gave these manuscripts for reproduction, the marginal note became a part of the text.
The Wolf of vigils of cap taps is not the word of God, not the word of john who suppose
this episode. So now you're alone that men realize that this is a fabrication is an interpolation and they threw it out. Is it true? You said yes. So thank you very much. So you see now depends upon the type of knowledge understanding this person you're talking to, as at times, you are talking to the wall, but even then, you can crack his skull, you know with the shoe facts. Charla Any other questions.
My name is no better. I want to ask one question. We believe that the word of God
delivered to us at Muhammad Mustafa sallallahu wasallam to hazard Jabra elite alarm. But How were the words were delivered to hazard Isa and hazard masala Salaam to the same person? I mean for Krishna.
I think I was confused. So I wanted to ask, I think what I understand is this, that you'd like to know
that the revelation that ye given to our Navy occur in Salah Salaam through Jerusalem was given in word form.
And how was it given to her that he Salah salon and musala.
See, we have new definite knowledge about how has a new stylist salon, and has an established salon were inspired.
Whether they had thoughts, ideas were being put into the mind, which they articulated, or whether it was given in word form.
But whatever it was the one thing we knew that whatever is attributed as musala salaam is not a first hand waving in other words that Allah has told me to tell you, it's not like that. It is in the third person somebody has writing,
that the Lord God Almighty said unto Moses, and Moses said unto the Lord,
is a different on a different level is not Allah talking is not musala, salaam talking.
Same thing to Jesus. Muhammad is Jesus. The Lord said unto me, even as the report says, they preserve it the very first experience we hear that when Jesus will being baptized in the River Jordan, according to the Holy Scripture of the Christians, a voice from what was heard from heaven, saying, This is my Son, in whom I'm well pleased.
So they say, the voice was heard from heaven. So he was not even talking to Jesus. Yes, he's not saying you are my son, and I will please with you.
said, This is my telling somebody else like telling you this. This is my Son, in whom I'm well pleased. So it's again in the third person, Jesus is not talking. And of course, nobody heard God talking about this. So it's on a different level altogether. Our Navy currents, every word in the Quran, was given verbally, like
the first revelation, extra,
We know that it was the 27th of the month of Ramadan. He was about 40 years old when he was in a cave, some three months south of the city of Mecca, north of the city of Mecca, Hara Hara, subsequently known as double moon, and the angel of God comes and tells him in his mother tongue, Torah read.
And he'd been unlearned that he says Ma and Avatar in is that I'm not learning. So the angel of God commands in a second I'm Tara Reid. And again he pleads, this is Monogatari for the third time, the angel of God says, The Spirit become lovey hallak so now he grasps how he grasps that what he was required to do was to repeat, because this Arabic word means to read to decide to reverse to repeat, so he repeated the words to correct this mirror dhikala re reading the name of the Lord and Jeremiah who created so our Navy said
they then just said hello in San amin, Allah say who pleaded man from a meal plot of congealed blood. So I'm going to be Salah Collinson, amin, Allah, Sakura, bukal Akram serene, and the Lord is known as bountiful. So when he said era Boko Haram salovey Allah will column say he thought the use of the pen is lm lm lm in Santa Monica lm support meant that he knew not just lm l in Santa marlim yada as soon as the angel departed available
Kareem Salah Salem, terrified, shooting all over, he went home to his dear wife, meaning a digital camera. And he says Cover me up Cover me and you know the whole story. But now you open the Quran, these five verses at the beginning of surah Allah, Chapter 96 in the Quran surah Allah, Allah means a lot.
You don't find that he was in a cave, some three miles north of the city of Makkah, you don't find that it was the 27th of the month of Ramadan, and that he was about 40 years old. You don't find a that he saw the angel and he was terrified. And the angel commanded him and he said man, and the innocence again, initial mana declaring is
nothing. The only thing is Alaska law. What was given is the all the other things are details that we learned from history, from tradition from what the Navy said, and what we have got recorded. So you see, the Quran is preserved on a unique level. Only Allah, Allah, Allah wa was speaking about, you won't find a better when he was in, in Medina in the masjid, and the Christians had come, and they were arguing and debating, and all the details I gave you is from traditions from history, it is not in the Quran, the Quran only says por la had a lot of summit.
So this is what the words that were given to him, that is what we have preserved. The other scriptures, they haven't got any such thing. Even materially, there is no such thing available.
out some weaknesses in the educational system. You never made any recommendations or for rectification of such a system. And that is the way we've been taught. But now in the absence of such a system, what do you suggest is a way we learn to imbibe and absorb Deen in the most effective way possible? The Quran? Yes,
I think I think I understood it correctly, that in the absence of that system, our system is wrong, we admit the system of teaching Arabic is wrong. Now, in the absence of that system, what is the second best? You see if we can understand our last column direct, there is no better way direct means if you can understand the Arabic When Allah is talking to us, we understand the language that Allah is talking. There's nothing no substitute for that. But the second best is a translation. The second best is a translation. If you understand better than any other language, get the translation if you understand scenery better than any other language get this in the translation. If you
understand Gujarati better than any other language, I say get a Gujarati translation, whatever language you understand best, get a translation in that language that is second best. But you My child, you speak English so beautifully. For you, despite maybe you understand it better than that even given the translation. But an English translation is imperative. It will improve your English, this translation, then everything on your fingertips. And the language the terminology, you get the right terminology to speak to others. You say attends we understand I'm telling the Arabs, the Arabs. I said, Look, you don't need a translation. That's your mother tongue. But if you aspire to
talk to share with a non Muslim who's English speaking, then you won't have the right terms. So I said look what you do you also need a translation. Do you read from the Quran? Bismillah Ar Rahman Rahim In the name of Allah most Gracious, Most Merciful
installer. Li Katya, Maria, Mo. Now you understand, you understand what it means I'm telling the era. But how are you going to explain to the follow? So you start using your own words, says, You see, the angel said to Mary. So Mary, in Allah has stuff Aki bata hierarchy Mustapha kehlani salamin ccdc Allah you know, he liked her very much is choosing her and you're talking like that, it appears that Allah is talking like that. So, we have a translation, you learn the translation is what is called Malika to Yama, Yama. So Behold, the angel said Oh, marry in Allah hasta faki Vata Hauraki Mustapha kehlani Salalah mean that God Almighty has chosen the and purified the chosen the above the
women of all nations. Now when you learn like that, you using the right terms, this using the correct terms will improve your vocabulary will improve your construction of sentences. And I'm telling people, our people, I said, Look, you don't have to read Shakespeare or Milton to improve your English even this book will do the job. You know what, what things it will do for you. Allah, Allah. Is there a verse by verse translation? If you read so many times, passively, you'll be understanding Arabic, English, you didn't learn Arabic as a language. I'm reading I seem to understand what I'm reading you
Notice that I seem to understand what I'm reading. How did I get it I didn't learn Arabic is the translation, because using the translation side by side with the vs. query,
you want to see
this translation I'm sure, I didn't have the time to make sure but this was printed in in Lahore.
It is available by Abdullah Yusuf Ali. The language as it is inspired English. Even the English seems to be inspired. This man Abdullah Yusuf Ali, when the Westerner when he reads it, he can't believe that an oriental could have written that English even the English is superb.
And is a substance also, this is the only translation English speaking person if you start sitting alone in South reading TEALS will start rolling down his eyes tears, because it's coming from the heart. You know, as our Shire says, we'll say Joe Barton, the cul de sac, the hay barn, kitakata perras. maratea is coming from the heart. So it moves people's hearts. Other people that write from the head, beautiful ideas, say tickles the brain, very nice, durable, but it doesn't mean you this one moves, you get it. And this cheep cheep, this message about the recommendations for the rectification of the educational system.
Recommendations for the improvement of the existing education system. The idea is that we must start learning language Arabic as we learn other languages. How do you learn other languages? Similar I went to school direct method. I didn't know English. I was born in India. I go to South Africa I go to school. So they start teaching me bat bags at cat me tea mat or at bat. So understand what is bad. What is right. What is mad. What is cat.
I know what they're talking about. I see a kitty, I see a bowl. I understand you guys.
Understand, but here I read the whole Quran, the Hafiz and Quran dakari he resigned. He doesn't understand one word. So the system is the system you should use for any language.
Why Arabic you make it separate different. And this is the reason why should it be a unique disgraceful language to learn is a unique disgrace. Only language on earth that we learn without understanding a word. There is no other language.
from the word go, you understand every word. You want to learn French from the word go at school, you'll understand every word that you're reading. This is the only language and last column is the whole book, you rattle it off. And you don't understand a word you need disgrace. This is about time that you spoke to your father and said, Look, Daddy do something about going to the movies, you know, to change the system.
My name is Sofia. Hey, I would like to ask a question.
On your speech when you were speaking about the Prophet, being an ami, you said the people of Arabia were armies to?
Maybe I didn't understand it very well. But as far back as I can think I read that. During that time, you know, there used to be a bizarre call Lucas in the Kaaba, where they used to come with the best verses and they will be worse time. As a matter of fact, most of the, you know, for a shift chiefs, we're always learning people as such. So I was just wondering if you could explain what you meant by that.
The errors were an only people.
Meaning as a people were illiterate. They didn't know how to rewrite. At the time of a wannabe they're only about half a dozen people in the whole of Arabia, who could read and write. Among them was Abu
Abu Jamal was one of those with regards to poetry. You don't have to read or write to speak poetry is your mother tongue. And they're talking and talking and talking and they say we are an eloquent people. They were very eloquent. crps eloquent.
Means dumb. They said we are the Arabs. We are the eloquent people and the rest of the world is a dumb means dumb compared to us. We can in our language edit posted can give you 100 different words for a sword that'll work in 100 different synonyms, we can give you 100 different synonyms for a horse. How many can you give in your language? any other language group? The guy says half a dozen. He said you see compared to as we are dumb. So a person who knows his language, he's got ideas. He can rattle it off beautiful voices. You don't have to be right.
The people as a nation, they illiterate. Like we will say Pakistan this morning I'm reading the newspaper that only five
percent of our women folk are illiterate.
Or there's a 26% of the Pakistanis are illiterate, says this nation is an illiterate nation. Our women folk as a whole are illiterate person of the daughters of Islam 100% you know, we are realities. Mashallah. But when I say Pakistani women as a whole are illiterate, I'm speaking the truth. Although the daughters of Islam, 100%, literacy, literacy, this is a little fragment from somewhere else. And under the law, you are all literate. But when we talking about Pakistan, we thinking of the whole nation, our prisons, our workers, and everybody else is only 5% of women for that this morning's paper in the door, I read it, somebody made some mention. So that's how we talk
the nation as a whole and meet people and I will not be any profit.
One, and that's how the Jews and the Christians they look down upon them.
Therefore, Allah tala is fluttering them. So all right, all right, you ll kita up people with a scripture Come come down.
Come Can you see now this is not because the boasting as against the Arabs, we are learning, dialogue.
Learning people out.
So as a people as a whole, they were illiterate.
So being a student of St. Joseph's College, I just wanted to ask a simple questions. Very simple. That's it that in our college towards nationalized now, but still on the top of the building, and in certain rooms, in which we have classes, and sometimes classes of Islamia, even. There's the sign of Trinity, the cross Dungan the walls, so it doesn't make any difference being Muslims, should we do anything about it? Or
you say the Muslim themselves have become so emasculated
the Muslims, we are we are. You see, you go to a pirate, I don't know Empire will give you the facilities like in Indonesia, you know, is a Muslim nation. You can't even say Allah. You can't have a society the word Islamic slash Islamic is taboo is forbidden. The word Allah, you can't use it, you must have to Han Han in the language of Indonesian. This is Pakistan. We don't have to go to that extreme. But I can't see any reason why the Pakistanis can have universities and schools of their own. Why can't you have your own that we have to send our children to mission schools, and they are getting brainwashed getting programmed, even if they're not converted? Is the nature of man
you know, they do. And they respect us and they talk to us. You say no, the Christians are very good people. You're the hot side opening out to them. So as soon as somebody comes along and says you must tell them well are Taku selasa. You can do that. You can do that. Because now it's creating that feeling. You
know, Miriam, anyway, anyone who says Jesus Christ, the son of Mary's God is making
is an act of blasphemy is an act of treason against Allah. Merci. Merci, Anika ha yeah. Vanessa de
la de la worship Allah La
Mirada, Tamara de
la, la casa Casa Casa de caraga. Ramallah Luciana, can you tell them? No, I can't you because we are obligated. So you put yourself into that position. And now we want to know how to fight like me tying your hands
can't close your mouth.
This is what is happening to us. So it is the powers that be the people who are in power. They must think and plans and look at institutions of our own hospital you can afford it there are millionaires and billionaires here go and approach them talk to them in the Father's name Let it be on his university or let it be his university whatever it is, come on man. What are you doing with those buildings city wanted like a lack of copper on a pile of well, what are you doing with your money?
is for you my child? You must talk to your father, your brother immediate surroundings? What is wrong? Look, we have to go through this because of the education we are getting. But now why can't we Why can't we top top top and inshallah it will reach the people in time that will do something.
First times, this is the latest meeting. You have enough of me in the other meeting says
this is modern trend that this modern trend that all the religions teach good things and forbid evils and the basic thing is it must have good o'clock. good relations with others. So how can we talk about this? can we how can we say that Islam is
different in the sense. And the other question is, can you been giving a lot of emphasis on Arabic language that he must know the Arabic? What about? What about the Arabs who know the Arabic language such and such an embarrassing thing to see?
let's see, what was the first one?
all the religions teaching.
You see, every religion says do good. There's no doubt about that. Not one religion, say commit adultery. Not only religion says steal, or kill people. No, no, nobody says that.
Then how is it that we can say that Islam is the culmination is the highest point of all religions? It is on the very teachings, each religion was the fittest religion. For its time, it was the perfect, it was complete and incomplete lack of education. See, in my country, I grew up to standard six in certain schools standard six, what do you call eight year.
And then I have received school, up to standard six, I get a certificate called Primary School Certificate. So if I pass that, and perfect, as far as standard six is concerned, the eighth grade, I'm perfect, and yet, I'm imperfect. Because now still, there's this further steps to go. So I go to a high school, we call it a college. And in the query, I go up to metric when a past metric is perfect, complete, empty or incomplete. As you see, it's complete up to metric, but it's still incomplete. Then I go to university, and I take whatever lines that I want to take. Now you see, so at every stage, it's complete and incomplete. It's complete and incomplete. So same thing with
religion, elaborated again, in the system of religions. We talk about Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. These are three sister religions. What Allah gave to her that masala Salam was perfect, complete and incomplete.
then by the time he Sally salon came, he came as a reformer among the Jews. So what Allah gave him was complete for his people for the needs and yet incomplete.
It's only in the dispensation of obeah Karim Saracen that through our Nivea creme de la seldom, Allah gives a final complete revelation. And he says in the book is optimal to Lacombe in this day I have perfected for you, your religion, to Allah equanimity and I've completed my favorites unto you what are the tilaka Melissa Medina in a world that Islam should be a religion so now it's complete, perfected. Once it's perfected, and complete, you can add anything more anything else added to it is an abnormality like this hand, look at this perfect, you can add another thumb to improve it, you can add another little finger or 10 fingers to improve it complete. Anything you now add to this is
an abnormality. Same thing to the teachings as given by Allah tala is a complete code for all times, but it was not so with most musala salon. It was not so with a stylus alarm, you see further needs perfect. But it was incomplete. For the time of Jesus. Whatever was given was perfect for the needs. But it was incomplete. That's how it is. And what was the second thing?
The error isn't there yet. Yes, it is. It's an anomaly that now look the error supposed to understand his language.
The error, that's his language, but he seems to have also lost the spirit behind the Quran. He's also reading for beautification for Salah, Sami these items. I meet them, I talk to them.
And I'm asking them is it like in Kuwait when I went to Kuwait? I saw as I landed, the men who comes to pick me up from the Ministry sitting within the fence. I'm asking him what is your name? Sir My name is Yusuf as the use of my youngest son is useful and you know you're like a son to me like my son is useful. So my companion we've been to Kuwait before he whispers to me that he's a Lebanese Christian. Oh, in others we better change the tune you know, he's not what you're thinking.
I go to the hotel five star hotel.
I see the receptionist from his complexion and dial I can make out is a Hindi man from the subcontinent. So I'm asking him where you come from.
So you say India
is a Bombay as you speak, Gujarati says no, I say That's funny. I come from Bombay and I can speak Gujarati How is it that you come from Bombay and you can speak Gujarati is a no I am Aquinas Christian said.
My name Steven. I sit down to eat the waiter comes another Hindi name. Paul
asked him, as you Paul. He said, Yes, sir robbing Peter to pay Paul hair. Just a joke. He is no, my father is Peter, as a
Christian, Christian Christian is eating the cream of the land, when my brothers in Pakistan are hungry for jobs. My brothers in the Sudan in Egypt are hungry for jobs in India are hungry for jobs. And the Christian is eating the cream of the land. So
I speak to these people, this younger generation, as you know, when I came, this is what I saw. I said, Look, you haven't got the guts. You haven't got the spirit to go and find customers for Islam. You can go to Borneo, you can go to the Amazon, you can go to China, you can go to Russia, you know, you're too soft. You can move anywhere. So allies making things easy for you is sending customers to your door to your homes looking for jobs, why don't you talk to them?
So the error tells me now is a lie craft is quoting the Quran shaitan quoting the Quran, they said the devils quoting scripture, he is a Muslim. He's an Arab. He's telling me what the Quran says. Is that like karate, it means there is no compulsion in religion. Who's talking about compassion? I'm not telling you to force his thumb down the throat. You I said 100 million. You can extricate one square inch of land from the mouth of the Jew by force. Am I going to tell you go and force the Americans to become muslims for the Chinese to become Muslims? First person who's talking about force.
The other guy I tell him is
this quote in the Quran, the shaytan I said, you know, this is a last resort. When everything fails, you try and when that guy says a, I put a knife through you that Allah tells you to tell them why is that hotma Mujahideen Apollo Salama, when you meet the ignorance a piece by tomorrow Rasta hamara roster that is as a last resort. If it started with that there would have been no problem. If he started with that we wouldn't have been Muslims today. But you see, he has lost the whole thing. But there's one thing good about there.
I am hammering him. And I tell you, he loves it. This is the beauty of it. He loves it because he knows it's coming from the heart. When I hit him, it's hurting me too. He knows that look, I'm not trying to score points on him to say that we are fools and I'm a clever man. I'm telling him Look, this is what we find ourselves in. And it's about time so you woke up and you did something you're like give me a second I'm telling them second inning and if you don't come right as you'll be destroyed for good you won't get a third chance and verify that guy and but he loves it you see but he has also lost touch with the Quran for 1000 years within propagate so we lost the art and once
you lose the art of talking the preaching, inviting people once you lose the art you don't know how to open your mouth so you don't open the mouth. This is about time you learn the techniques how to start with the paper. So this is my field is in it I want to share with people how to start with the Jews how to start with the Christian how to start with the Hindu how to talk to the atheist the agnostic how to do it is so easy
allies teaching you in the Quran, but nobody really gives a crap that's the saddest part. Nobody really not even the movie.
Not even the Maulana he doesn't read it. He's rattling it off.
You know, Bertha has Hakata
but nobody really reads it and I'm telling the guy said you know
and somehow look I've not learned a lot you know, I'm a furniture salesman. But you see what has happened is somehow because of talking talking these people you know the average they called me and gave me a price King Faisal price. So the everybody thinks I'm some good guy. So now they are prepared to listen to me. Joe is want to see me tomorrow, day after tomorrow. Zero to see me.
My name is Amina Tarik. I'm a medical student. What I wanted to ask is about the word doubt in Quran Quran says you should not have doubts. But until and unless we don't have doubt, we don't have shuck. We can't have your game, too. We have to ponder different aspects of a particular concept or a particular thing to find out what the matter is about and to come to some conclusions. And unless you haven't come to a conclusion, you can't really have definite fate on it. You can't have the key to
is doubt not right. I mean, to think about a thing to ponder how why is that true?
That's my question.
No, it is not wrong. to question Allah says in the Quran again and again. So this Quran this verses he recites sensel along the top of the room. This is for the people who think people who ponder people who cogitate upon again and again and asking questions. There's nothing wrong with it. You see nothing wrong with asking questions. Hello Deborah Emily Salah, a prophet of God, Allah Allah Allah.
Allah tells us about him in the Quran.
So what is Carla, Ibrahim? And behold, Abraham said, that be a rainy rainy cape autofill mouth. So my Lord showed me how you're going to give life back to the dead.
A prophet of God, Allah His friend is asking Allah to read the original paper to heal Mota how you gonna give life back to the day? So Allah is asking him, Allah told me why don't you believe

And to him will be your return. How can you not believe in Him? Look, he is not like
Ready they're looking for excuse to destroy you know, he wants you to talk to thing to reason to ponder over his creation. Look at it. He wants to do that. But now when we are asking our learner admin, some of these questions this is because they haven't got the answer. The best way is to shut you up.
You know you're gonna go to hell, for my daily service needs to get
this is it. But Allah wants you to think he says that. He wants to ask He wants you to ponder, ask Allah to help and he will help you in Sharla this doubts creeping in, nothing wrong with it. Even the sahabas they will complaining to our nebby is the universal standard for Salat.
Allahu Akbar is this you know, thoughts, doubts starts creeping in our minds. What shall we do is that you keep on praying in 11 put it right.
Since now My mind is wandering offices, what's good of praying? No, you keep on inshallah over a period will be better discipline. It'll come right. But this is the spirit of Allah, Allah and His plan.
Unfortunately, there is a Unfortunately, there is a great divide in our women on the issue. One says and I don't know why it is. I mean, it's very clearly written there. Probably when you will say something about polite might sort of have bridged the gap between the two very widely apart section in Muslim women, especially in Pakistan. Could you please comment on something
that is working? Yes. The type of pardon. I understand this, this part of that, that I see before me, my wife, my daughter, this is the type of things that we have.

right. But then what about acid this woman from inside that that that cloak she's looking at me
Is it right?
No, she's since she's can feast on which is going through me, you know, with our eyes.

But she's seeing me. She's seeing
the beauty that's standing out and all that you know, my teeth and everything and
things are going through her mind as a Shall we, you know, take out the eyes. Women stick their eyes out because they can't see me.
I think it's going a bit too far. I don't know. But I will not
As a fatwa tell you anything but to me, you all my daughters, you are just like my wife and my children at home. Same type of thing. And I don't know I seem to be satisfied.
I'm satisfied with this. So I'm very happy with the rest. I don't know let them start debating in questioning. I don't know that don't fight. I am not a mole. We are an island to give fatwa. But to me this is acceptable. Yes.
I'm really grateful to you for giving us so much knowledge about the Christian faith. But most Westerners gets a scandalize if you start talking about religion of politics. What do you think is a safe way to approach them about you know, religious issues or about their faith? You see, the best way is
as I was telling find common grounds, common grounds and this is what allies telling us in the Quran.
This is cool. Tell them Yahoo al Qaeda op will the book Jews and Christians tharla camp Isla Kalimantan savaii manana verbena calm that we come to common terms as begin as a new latest get onto a common platform.
You start from a common base. And Allah tells you what you should talk about, number one about Allah, Allah, Buddha, Allah, Allah, Allah, Masha, BJ and so on. But this principle of finding common ground
is such a beautiful system
that the person is is cooperating with you.
Common Ground start from common base
as an even with the atheist, you know, person who don't believe in God, this is a coffee. I don't know what you say, for an atheist. atheist, who doesn't believe in God, but is in
the area. The guy when he said that there is no God. Now that he is supposed to be the greatest enemy
is supposed to be the greatest enemy of the the man who said there is no God. Look, the Jew say there is God. The Christian said there is God the Hindu say there is God. Here is a person that is it, there is no God.
And I am telling you find common grounds with him also anybody This is beautiful principle Allah says with a Jew and Christian, but it can be extended to anybody, everybody, common grounds. So how do you find common grounds with an atheist?
Who doesn't believe in Allah? How can you be have anything in common? So look, if you knew his background, very easy. You see, I come across Westerners Westerners.
Ask them what church you belong to.
This is also very innocent, what church because among the Christians in South Africa, among the whites that are 1000 different churches and denominations. Among the blacks, there are 3000 different sects and denominations. So among Christians, and they're always asking one another what church you belong to watch you belong to a Joe's witness, a Seventh Day Adventist? Mennonite christadelphian, are you a Roman Catholic? Are you
asking what church? What church? What church? So I asked, what should you belong to?
The guy says, No, I don't go to church. I don't believe in God
says it. Congratulations to you.
when he says I don't believe in God. He expects me to you know, start attacking him now. As is no as a congratulations to you. So what for?
I said, you see, if you told me you are a Christian, no, congratulations. Because your father was a Christian. Your mother was a Christian.
You tell me you're a Muslim? As a no Congratulations, because your father was a Muslim. Your mother was a was a Muslim? No, we won't give you do. You inherited?
Nothing. So no, congratulations. But if you say you're an atheist, as a Congratulations, because your father was a Christian, your mother was a Christian, you come from a Christian environment and you say you don't believe in God. You have been thinking. So I congratulate you for that. What made you say that there is no God?
If your father was a Christian, they were going to church mother was going to church. And now you say you don't go to church and you don't believe in God. He was thinking.
So for that I congratulate you. Your mind has been working Christian. He didn't work his brain his routine work his way in the Hindu didn't work is when the born Muslim didn't work his brains. You work your brains. Congratulations.
I said you see, you have been thinking what have you been thinking?
The things that you've been hearing about, you have been hearing about creation.
Even he's an atheist, he knows what he has been reading as a child in the Bible. The environment is telling him about creation. He said, you see, you read in the Bible, that God created Adam and Eve.
And he put them in the garden said, Yes. And he told them eat anything, everything, except the fruit of the tree in the midst of the garden, I'm reading from the Bible, that three, Thou shall not eat that fruit Thou shall not eat, because the day that the eatest thereof, thou shall surely die, says the Bible, that
you will surely die.
So shaytan comes along, and he tells them, he says, look, that fruit is very good to eat. And if you eat, you shall not surely die.
So they were tempted they act, and the LIFO 950 years after that.
So now you're confused. God said that they usually die. Shaytan says, I shall not surely die. And they didn't die, who's speaking the truth?
So they act.
As soon as they add, they realize that they were naked.
Prior to that, maybe gruner people, but they were innocent Muslim in the thinking they didn't know that they were naked. Now they realized that they were naked. So they started plucking leaves. I'm reading from the Bible. I'm rooting for him his background, I'm telling. So they started plucking leaves. And Adam heard, the Bible says, God walking in the garden in the cool of the day, and Adam heard his footsteps.
Like a mighty giant like King Kong are bigger than King Kong, and the earth is shaking. Boom.
So this, as the Bible says, Adam heard the footsteps of God walking in the garden in late afternoon, cool of the day. So he goes and hide himself in the wishes.
Maha one. So what comes in stance, I'm only reading what is in his book, what what his experience I'm telling him. So God comes and stands where Adam and Eve were a few seconds before. And he scans his looks.
He can see them. So this is Adam. Adam. We're at TAO to,
to a god, he doesn't know anyone.
Maybe Maybe he's playing hide and seek,
you know, with, with Adam and Eve, like I do with my grandson. I have a grandson about three and a half years old. So I go home, and he's very happy to see his grandpa.
But I go pretending that I don't see him say shout, raise, raise to catch a
majority language. Does he understand my language? And I'm looking over race.
And he's laughing. He's laughing he's a gorilla can see me.
So maybe the almighty also was wondering, have a little fun, you know, playing hide and seek.
I don't know. But that's what the Bible says. So Adam peeks through the bushes. He was sheepishly guilty. So what's wrong?
Why are you hiding?
He said, because I was naked. So how do you know that you were naked? You have anything the foot
says no is a woman that that gave us to me. She made me to eat. In other words, is blaming Allah for giving him the woman safe. He didn't give me this woman I wouldn't be in trouble. If you gave me this woman
to know is the serpent beguiled me?
So you know, the covers our grandfather and grandmother First, the coverage is the passing the buck. The responsibility somebody has somebody has the oldest game in the world still with us today.
So I said you believe in a God
who walk in the garden and adequate his footsteps? He says no, that's me too. I don't believe in a god like that. Then in the book of Genesis is still the same book first book. Musa Musashi, Allah says he wants to see God. In the Quran. Allah says, llanthony shall never see me. In the Bible. He says, Look, I must see you
to do Salah Barrett Allah, He really is a favor. So he puts in between two rocks, the Bible says, and he puts his hand in the opening, so musallam can see him. Then he turns his back. Then he turns his back and he takes his hand and Moses sees the back of God. He saw his backside. Alice's backside he saw
a robot like that, that somebody can Moses can see his backside he says no, maybe the front side was too horrible to see
Sesame to I don't believe in a god like that. Me too. I said, you know, you say the Christian, your father, mother, the whole Christian world. They said Mary the mother of Jesus carried Mary she carried Jesus for nine months. Who is this Jesus his
his God who came down to earth as a man.
He was born like any other human child circumcised on the eighth day. You all know what is circumcision? At night you see
somebody holding God and getting circumcised you believe
that a woman carries birth for nine months you believe in that? I don't believe in it.
So I said look, this man, this atheist is taking the first right step in the direction of Islam he is nearer to us than the Jew, the Christian or the Hindu. Because he has uttered the first words La Ilaha Illa.
There is no ILA as the Jesus is not Illa Rama is not Allah Krishna is not Eli.
So he's saying La ilaha
illAllah Luke is taking the first step what do you start with anybody who's become Muslim What do you say Say La what is La
Ilaha Illa de forma buena he there is not nobody will do with your worship except Allah so he's taken the first step he said La la la look find ways of making him to see that there is in LA LA. So common grounds and a common basis what law you can do to anybody if you want to sell our father's or business people and you know when they sell rubbish how they sell I know we have been selling I'm a salesman originally selling selling selling and I know how to sell who spoke as a
developer there's another very good in banda rodino that all good good. Mashallah.
Masters masters xavante [???]tin, a chasm,
you undersell your rubbish? You use such art and technique? Why not in the way of Allah also thing you can develop what you can develop. And so it's so pleasant, and it's so you know, it gives us a satisfaction because Allah says leave us a hero Valentina Cooley, I mean sad India is a master organ supersede all Buddhism all and when you have the power of a bulldozer, bulldozer at work? Yes. I just watch and watch and watch for hours. Just see how it moves. You know, heaps and heaps, moving mountains how it does flooding the ground. He is telling
you get fascinated mesmerized by what it is doing. You have a bulldozer we can do those any ism with Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christian ism atheism, every Islam, Islam is destined to master them all is a privilege and is given us as a starting point.
