00:00:02--> 00:00:28

He walked with a grace that belied his size, his powerful man, the glint in his eyes, and the ring a study of purpose and skill, a triumph of talent, and training and will, a Master of Arts in the art of defense, a master building a spell of suspense, outside of the ring away from the crowd, a soft spoken man, hard, humble, hard, proud,

00:00:30--> 00:00:43

the boasts, and the threads were part of a plan to save the opponent, not part of men, the men had the fears that accompany all who go into battle and know they may fall. Yes,

00:00:44--> 00:01:03

fear was the enemy each time to face and fear the opponent he kept in his place. his courage was tested again and again by those who are deemed to be men. amongst men, were the opponents who fought toe to toe, who gave out an inch as they pray, blow for blow.

00:01:04--> 00:01:05

He met them.

00:01:07--> 00:01:07

He fought them.

00:01:08--> 00:01:10

And then he collects

00:01:11--> 00:01:14

that treasure of treasures, the gift of respect.

00:01:16--> 00:01:26

The word and the deed soon became intertwined the mouth and the fist, the body in the mind, legend and fat, the image, the truth, the wisdom of age, and the spark

00:01:27--> 00:01:35

of youth was spread on a canvas for all to behold, the power of steel needs the glitter of goal.

00:01:36--> 00:01:40

Success, you see with his constant companion, his friend,

00:01:41--> 00:01:46

it seemed like good fortune was his without in but even the greatest, let's face that grim day,

00:01:47--> 00:01:50

the day the decision stopped falling his way.

00:01:53--> 00:02:00

champion, the best of the best found he was vulnerable, just like the rest.

00:02:01--> 00:02:16

But even when times were exceedingly rough, he never lost heart or cried out, it's enough. And time came around and time cleared his name. And time saw him gain even greater acclaim by doing what no other person had done. He fought was heavyweight crown,

00:02:17--> 00:02:17

and he won.

00:02:19--> 00:02:20

And now

00:02:22--> 00:02:26

as we gather to praise, to cheer this man,

00:02:27--> 00:02:29

we say for the world that has come to agree,

00:02:30--> 00:02:31

thank Allah.

00:02:33--> 00:02:34

Thank God.

00:03:08--> 00:03:13

We started the center in 19 158, with three pounds and five shillings.

00:03:15--> 00:03:24

From that little beginning, we have this whole area with hundreds of little Billings

00:03:25--> 00:03:27

is called Adams mission station.

00:03:28--> 00:03:34

And about 50 years ago, I worked in a shop close by here.

00:03:36--> 00:03:37

And across the valley from the shop,

00:03:39--> 00:04:10

is what is called Adams mission station, Adams college. And students from this college used to come along. And those were training missionaries. They were harassing me, and the other employees, Muslim employees of the shop, telling us too many things about Islam and about the prophet of Islam, about which I had no knowledge. Now, these missionaries, you know, they were making life miserable for us from this college. They were getting training there

00:04:11--> 00:04:16

as to how to deal with the Muslims. And as they came to do the shopping here,

00:04:18--> 00:04:19

they asked us questions.

00:04:20--> 00:04:41

Actually, this is you know, Mama that so many wives. I knew nothing about that. It says, you know, Muhammad spirit is a religion, the point of the sword. I knew nothing about that. This is you know, he copied his book from the Jews and the Christians. I knew nothing about that. So what was I as a Muslim to do?

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

You fight back. But without knowledge you can fight back and run away and jobs are very difficult to find those days. So I had a natural urge for reading. And one Sunday morning, going into my boss's warehouse

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

Go down. I was rummaging through a pile of old newspapers, looking for some better reading material than newspapers to read. And as I was looking for such a material, I came across a worm eaten book. This book, we have renewed the cover, but a worm eaten book. And when I picked it up

00:05:23--> 00:05:24

when I picked it up,

00:05:26--> 00:05:39

I started to sneeze, because it was all full of mildew. And I read the title of the book, it said, Is harville Huck, spelled out in Latin script? I said,

00:05:40--> 00:05:44

Are you LHAK is hard.

00:05:45--> 00:05:48

Not to me that sounded Arabic is hard.

00:05:49--> 00:06:03

It sounds like Arabic. So I didn't know what it meant. I see here at the bottom, it says the truth revealed. This was a very old publication, printed in 19 115. In India,

00:06:04--> 00:06:24

two years older than myself. I was born in 18. This as three years older than myself. This book actually changed my life. Had it not been that I came across this book, I would not have been doing what I'm doing today that is talking to people about religion on a competitive basis.

00:06:25--> 00:06:30

This is how it all started here in this area 50 years ago.

00:07:48--> 00:07:51

See the how this Islamic Propagation center

00:07:52--> 00:07:54

international came into being.

00:07:56--> 00:08:00

As soon as I left school, I started working in a country shop.

00:08:02--> 00:08:10

Just about 25 miles outside the city, selling sugar and salt. Flour arrives across the counter.

00:08:12--> 00:08:13

across the valley from the shop.

00:08:14--> 00:08:16

There was a Christian mission.

00:08:18--> 00:08:28

University where they were training missionaries, and these training missionaries, whatever they learned, they came to practice on the Muslims in the shop.

00:08:30--> 00:08:30

We were

00:08:32--> 00:08:37

ready customers for them. They were the only Muslims around the place. And

00:08:39--> 00:08:41

they would come to us telling us

00:08:43--> 00:08:45

that you know Muhammad so many whites?

00:08:47--> 00:08:48

I knew nothing about that.

00:08:50--> 00:09:06

They will tell us that Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam his spirit, his religion as a part of the solid meaning he forced people to accept Islam. I knew nothing about that said Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, he copied the Quran from the Jews and the Christians meaning he plagiarized he stole

00:09:07--> 00:09:12

I knew nothing about that. And all the other stuff in the shop. We're all in the same level.

00:09:14--> 00:09:15

The only thing we knew about Islam

00:09:17--> 00:09:19

was that we read the Shahada,

00:09:20--> 00:09:34

which made us Muslims. What the Shahada meant, when we said Laila Illallah Muhammad Rasul Allah was it was like a magic formula. If you can say, You are a Muslim, if you can say you're not a Muslim.

00:09:36--> 00:09:46

What to do? They made life miserable. The missionaries made life miserable for me and other staff. I felt like leaving the job and running away, but jobs are very difficult to get.

00:09:48--> 00:09:50

What to do? A lot came to the rescue.

00:09:52--> 00:09:54

I came across a wound eaten book.

00:09:56--> 00:09:59

The woman book in my boss's warehouse, please.

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

No doubt

00:10:01--> 00:10:04

the title of the book was, is how

00:10:05--> 00:10:07

meaning the truth revealed.

00:10:09--> 00:10:21

And this book title intrigued me because it sounded like Arabic but it was written in Latin script in English. I said, ha, are you LH a qq is how to Hawk.

00:10:22--> 00:10:26

And I eliminated those in my mind is Harold Hawk is

00:10:29--> 00:11:15

seeing in brackets in smaller types, the truth revealed and are connected that most probably is our means the truth revealed. And I read this book, this book was about the Christian missionary attack on India, my motherland, that when the British conquered India, they realized that at any time, anybody will give them trouble, the Muslims, because power rule, Dominion was arranged out of their hands. And once they have tasted power, they will aspire for it once more again. And the Muslims were a militant people, in contrast to the Hindus, who were at that time, they were as docile as the cows that they were worshipping. So there was no fear from that quarter. So the British felt that if

00:11:15--> 00:11:49

they can convert the Muslims, a substantial number of them, they can ruled India for 1000 years. And they started pouring the missionaries, like frogs in the rainy season into India, wanting to convert our people. I'm reading the this in this book, and about the debates that took place. Now those debates were great interest to me, because this is actually now I'm under pressure from the Christians, and it's giving me material. It's arming me, as the debates that took place the same type of arguments, if I can use, I will be in a better position to defend myself in Islam.

00:11:50--> 00:12:17

So whatever I learned in the book, I started practicing on the students now. And I made appointments with them to go to their homes on Sundays, after church, the church and talking to them talking to them. And I talked myself into talking until I came to Durban, reside in Durban. I found a job in Durban, and in Durban, around the 50s and opened into place. This is also lm Subbable, as Bob,

00:12:18--> 00:12:22

we had a very charismatic speaker coming from overseas.

00:12:23--> 00:12:38

And this speaker, very unusual for a Sunday morning, he used to get to two to 300 people every Sunday morning, and the crowd was increasing continuously. And I used to attend this talk of is very fascinating. At the end of the talk,

00:12:40--> 00:12:51

question and answers, and then everything was over. After a few months, a revert to Islam and English man will become Muslim. by the name of Mr. Fairfax.

00:12:52--> 00:13:07

This Mr. Fairfax, he suggested this look any of you if you are interested, I am prepared to teach you people comparative religion, whether you call it Bible class, I will teach you the Bible how to use the Bible in propagating Islam.

00:13:08--> 00:13:12

So very good. So out of these two to 300.

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

Audience every Sunday morning that this other gentleman grew about 15 to 20 opted to remain for a second injection.

00:13:24--> 00:13:43

And this was the Fairfax began teaching us that look in the book of Daniels, there are certain prophecies and how to Jesus prophecies in the book of Deuteronomy. In the Bible, there are certain prophecies regarding the cameo for nebia creme de la Salaam, and how we can exploit them how we can expand them.

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

So this thing carried on for a few more weeks or a couple of months, and then Mr. Fairfax was absent.

00:13:54--> 00:13:57

And I could see the disappointment on the faces of these young people. We were all young then

00:13:59--> 00:14:12

15 to 20 of us, were looking at each other's faces. Disappointed and we break up the following Sunday. Again, we look at each other's faces, Where is Mr. Fairfax news, and we break up

00:14:13--> 00:14:21

the third Sunday, I suggested to them to the those people who are enthusiastic about having a second inning

00:14:22--> 00:14:55

as it Look, if you like I can carry on with Mr. Fairfax left off, because I had the knowledge but I was sitting in to give this person my moral support. Myself and my secretary who has just passed away this to gh Ivanka. Now we were both knowledgeable as far as the Bible was concerned. But we would give them a moral support itself to sit there and with the rest. Now I said look, if you like I will give you I will carry on from where Mr. Fairfax left off.

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

And if you get bored, tired

00:15:00--> 00:15:01

Head up, just yawn

00:15:02--> 00:15:16

and they'll be noticed enough for me to stop. And for three years, I continued talking to them. And I discovered now that that was my best way of learning, because there is no better way to learn than to teach.

00:15:17--> 00:15:20

As our Nivea Kareem Salah salam, he said, Bill,

00:15:22--> 00:15:59

you live with a message regarding me, even if it is one verse, that's a secret. If you have one verse, and if you share, and you share, and you share, then Allah feels you have it? No, I didn't know that then. But I can now realize what was happening, teaching them teaching them. Then I had some visitors, visitors, visitors to come along. There were some visitors coming from Johannesburg, and they stayed in for my class. And they feel that they can exploit my talents. So they said, Look, we are having a birthday celebration of the Holy Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam in the city hall of Johannesburg. And we would like you to come and speak to us.

00:16:00--> 00:16:14

So I said, I'm a working class, man, I can't afford these trips. But if you give me an a ticket, I will come. So they give me a return a ticket. And for the first time in my life, I traveled by a to read John's book and deliver the lecture. Now, that gave me an idea

00:16:15--> 00:16:24

that if I can let you in the city hall of Johannesburg, what is wrong with the City Hall of Durban. So, we organized a lecture here in the city of Durban.

00:16:25--> 00:16:30

And it was in 1950 December 1958. As a result of that,

00:16:32--> 00:16:40

to Caucasians, white people, Europeans, they started visiting our offices in Madras arcade and subsequently, that

00:16:41--> 00:17:08

price is a certain type of conversion to place that we converted to those two white gentlemen who will come to my office we converted them in the western mosque here in Durban. And then another two within a week, an Indian and then European again in the Juma Masjid Durban. So, there was somebody watching, Allah watches all times that there was somebody else who was witnessing a look

00:17:09--> 00:17:12

and elderly gentleman by the name of Haji si cada.

00:17:13--> 00:17:41

So after the second conversion of people in the Juma Masjid The man was is tying shoelaces. I'm also on the same bench tying my shoelaces is telling me that it observed my work what I had been doing, and he likes it very much. And he said, Look, I've got 75 acres of land at a place called Brahma in the towel, about 55 miles outside Durban, and I'm prepared to give it to you. So I said I accept.

00:17:42--> 00:17:48

He said no, not so fast. You must first I will look at the place. I said What is there to look so no,

00:17:49--> 00:18:25

you must first have a look. I was thinking that these are 50 acres of rocks, I will still have 25 acres of good land. If there are 25 acres of rocks I left 50 acres of good land and that is a garden colony. This colony is called a garden colony with all his greenery and beauty and natural qualities about it. So he said no, you must have a look. So I will be our trustees. We I went down and I saw the land. And I accepted I started establishing an institution called a Salaam where I could train Muslim missionaries. It is functioning at the moment.

00:18:27--> 00:18:28

00:21:08--> 00:21:36

We started the center in 1900 58 with three pounds and five shillings and hamdulillah. From that little beginning, we have grown we have grown As you have noticed that this building here in which we are situated, we purchase this and we have three different all debt, we have purchased another building, which will accommodate an auditorium and there are numerous shops to bring as income and the work is progressing. So

00:21:38--> 00:21:44

we have been doing a certain type of work in that we were using the Juma Masjid

00:21:45--> 00:21:50

for attracting visitors. So we started advertising the gymmaster. Durban

00:21:51--> 00:22:36

in the Durban cooperation brochure, they give out to visitors tourists, we say that visit the largest mosque in the southern hemisphere for a free guided tour phone to 7054. That was a really old number. And people used to fall in this too. Because generally to the tourists, they didn't know the difference between the mosque and a temple to them. Now, these are synonymous terms. So they came and we explained we explained to them what goes on, we gave them free literature. And this was one of our major works that we were doing, giving out literature and explaining Islam and holding lecture meetings throughout the country on different topics, where we can enthuse the Muslim with

00:22:36--> 00:22:47

regards to propagation, so strengthen them against the Christian missionary activity and put them in a position that they can talk back and explain Islam.

00:22:48--> 00:22:51

Rahim My name is Ruslan.

00:22:52--> 00:22:56

I mainly take tourists to the moss on

00:22:58--> 00:23:07

moss guide tours. And we get people from all ethnic groups, mainly white people. And I speak to them about Islam.

00:23:08--> 00:23:50

I also do conversions or reversions, to Islam, and also answer correspondence from all over the world. The sunrises and sunsets, according to God's law, nature's law, human beings are the only creation we tell ourselves we know better. We do not submit to God's commandments or his law, as a result of which we made a mess out of this whole world. Right? This is why if you if you observe a Muslim, he seemed to do things that you will find was done by Jesus, Moses and the prophets of God in the Bible in the Jewish scriptures. For instance, I met you at the greeting Woods a piece of salaam aleikum, every prophet of God met people by saying peace beyond t I'll prove it. In the Bible

00:23:50--> 00:24:33

in the book of john, Chapter 2021 and 22. Jesus is set to meet people by saying Peace be with you. In the book of the kings, David and Solomon meets people by saying Peace be with you. Jesus in the New Testament tells his disciple, he says when you enter a house, say Peace be to the house. He spoke Aramaic, and he said shala Malaika. We Muslims are the only one till today who meet people by saying peace beyond to you. There's also a very good common sense reason for saying peace beyond to you. For instance, if I said Good morning or good afternoon to you, it would just mean the Good morning or good afternoon. When I say peace beyond you and you are depressed, it means peace come

00:24:33--> 00:24:49

over to you. And it means peace in the morning, the afternoon and the night. And also I am imparting The peace of the knowledge or the teachings of God or Islam to all human beings I meet. Can you see it's a more complete and wholesome meeting he

00:24:50--> 00:24:52

has a more complete meaning.

00:24:53--> 00:24:57

Also, we The first thing we did is we took off our shoes Why?

00:25:00--> 00:25:12

prophets of God took off the shoes. For instance, in the Bible, the Book of Exodus chapter three, verse five, the book of Acts, chapter seven, verse 33, you find that God commands the Holy Prophet Moses at Mount Sinai.

00:25:14--> 00:25:28

He says to Moses, draw not now however, put off by shoes from off thy feet for the place where our standard is holy ground. God commands the Holy Prophet Moses at Mount Sinai to remove issues in the presence of the Almighty God.

00:25:29--> 00:25:42

Jesus says, I come not to destroy the law of Moses, but to fulfill it. That means that he came to fulfill the laws of Moses in Moses, Moses took off his shoes he must have taken shoes off when he prayed to

00:25:43--> 00:26:05

the common sense reason for taking on our shoes when we attend places of worship of praise as follows. the dirtiest part of your shoe of your body is the underneath of issues with that you go to the toilet with it, you trample over the feces of animals, God is pure and clean. If the imperfect human being wishes to perfect himself, he must be clean.

00:26:07--> 00:26:10

Right? Muslims also wash themselves before they pray.

00:26:11--> 00:26:28

The prophets of God wash themselves before they pray. If you look in the Bible, you'll find in the book of Exodus chapter 4031 32, you see that Moses and Iran are set to wash the hands and feet directly wash as the Lord commanded Moses before they enter the tent of the congregation.

00:26:30--> 00:27:04

So washing ourselves before prayer serves three fold purpose. It is what the prophets of God did. It's a good hygienic practice. Third reason and most significant, it serves a mental preparation for prayer, psychological purpose. For the time when we wash ourselves before the prayer, we have the following pray in mind. God make us those who are the purified and those who repent for their sins. So we started with advertising the Quran, in our local news Sunday newspapers, one called the Sunday Tribune.

00:27:05--> 00:27:44

we advertise Quranic verses under the heading. The Quran speaks a message from the Quran and giving them a name and address that further inquiries can be made and for for free literature they can write, then the same thing we started being for the African people in the Zulu language newspaper called Elana Lhasa Natal, in the son of Natal, in which we had equal Ronnie Akuma which means what the Quran says. And again, the same technique, verses from the Quran translated into Zulu and offering people free information and literature. Then we have also had other ideas like advertising

00:27:46--> 00:27:53

in a most unobtrusive manner. We don't often people like you'll see on buildings here

00:28:07--> 00:28:08

we have the Apocrypha.

00:28:10--> 00:28:11

Katharina mean,

00:28:19--> 00:28:21

worked on his agenda to

00:28:22--> 00:28:24

finish our Medina to Durban

00:28:28--> 00:28:29

II

00:28:37--> 00:28:41

find the sign saying, read on the last testament.

00:28:42--> 00:28:43

Read

00:28:44--> 00:28:53

the last testament, during the day, the sign is there, and at night, it flashes, you know the color. So you know those attracting people's attention?

00:28:54--> 00:29:00

Read Al Quran, the last testament Now, most especially in the South African context.

00:29:01--> 00:29:03

It is mildly provocative,

00:29:04--> 00:29:19

because this is, as I said, an ocean of Christianity and in this ocean of Christianity, they know the Old Testament and then the New Testament. So when you are speaking about last testament, it becomes a shock. So what do you mean last testament?

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

So,

00:29:22--> 00:29:33

inquisitiveness, which is to as attracting them wanting to know, we can make it the Quran, what is this Quran? So we are achieving this by advertising these on top of buildings.

00:29:35--> 00:29:59

We have a dozen different types of literature all on comparative basis. And we are publishing these literature now. 100,000 at a time, we have a book called what the Bible says about Muhammad, that book we have done more than 300,000. Then we have another book is the Bible God's word. We have done more than 260,000 and all crucifixion of crucifixion, Christ in this last

00:30:00--> 00:30:21

How Islam solves a racial problem, the Muslim at prayer and on and on. We are printing this booklet and 1000 at a time for absolutely free distribution we don't charge anybody, only the Quran we have to sell. If people buy they can buy if they can afford, they must write and tell us why we should give them for nothing and we do provide for them.

And we have also been giving out these currents we have been offering to free, free free to every school, college, university and Public Library, absolutely free of charge, every mosque and madrasah absolutely free of charge. And we have handled so far about 85,000. We have just placed an order now for another 100,000 for helping our brethren all over the world. For example, I'm sending 10,000 crowns to our Afro American brethren in America. I want to help the people in Sri Lanka and in India, Pakistan in the UK, we want to do this, that the Quran is made available, freely available at

00:32:21--> 00:32:36

in the Bible in respect response to Sagat. And we have today Now, this is tape number 35. But we have a different video based on this law, video production department of Islamic Propagation center international

standard video production

00:32:41--> 00:32:42

video machines,

00:32:44--> 00:32:46

eight of these mechanical machines and yet we are able to

00:32:48--> 00:33:10

able to produce over 200 copies of videos a week, averaging between 800 to 1000 copies depending upon the duration of the lecture Mr. Diaz talks and let debates attend the duration of the lectures for between one hour, two hours and three hours. Depending on the duration of these lectures. Details vary between 800 to 1000 cassettes,

00:33:13--> 00:33:14

producing cassettes.

00:33:15--> 00:33:34

As you can see, the famous Muslim personalities ultimately, at the moment, as you can view on all monitors his use of Islam, a prominent scholar from the Western world with finally accepted Islam, realizing the potential of Islam, and how it has made his life simple.

00:33:36--> 00:34:02

titles of use of Islam we have other copies, other people who have accepted Islam as well. We started with one boom, four videos, no mass producing, we installed 10 machines. One boom was taken up. Now, we need three rules for doing the job. We have an editing suite now we want to put up another 10 machines. Because as fast as we are producing these tapes, we can't seem to cope up with them.

00:34:26--> 00:34:59

Salam alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh We are the Islamic Propagation center. Make use of the facilities that you see before you to do editing of our tapes. The tapes are first shot by our cameraman on crew and once they have been shot the abroad to be edited. Once these tapes are edited, they are taken to our duplication rack where we have made hundreds of copies of this particular table. We do biblical inserts as well as Quranic inserts at the moment

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

have just released from adidas and Robert Douglass's debate that was held in 1986. The Quranic inserts, as well as the publicly inserts have been completed, and they are ready for marketing for Salaam Alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh.

00:35:19--> 00:35:20

We see fiction.

00:35:21--> 00:35:23

We say it is.

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

Fiction, it sounds the same. For the fiction of crucifixion, the spelling is the difference between the two. That is the point of view, it is a fiction.

00:35:36--> 00:35:38

Now, many say that it is a fiction,

00:35:39--> 00:35:41

the Christian reformed

00:35:42--> 00:35:44

evidence, he says,

00:35:45--> 00:35:46

We have

00:35:47--> 00:35:49

by eyewitnesses and new witnesses,

00:35:51--> 00:35:56

several 1000 years ago, that Jesus Christ was hanged and killed

00:35:58--> 00:35:59

some 2000 years ago.

00:36:01--> 00:36:07

Now, what I'm going to do tonight, is I'm telling you this is this is what the Quran says.

00:36:08--> 00:36:14

I want to show you that the Bible that you hold in your hands, whatever version that

00:36:15--> 00:36:15

you will find,

00:36:17--> 00:36:18

and

00:36:19--> 00:37:02

the whole world is crying for these tapes. Because it's something novel to them is really a novel thing, because they have heard lectures about only addressing Muslims, how to make Salah we must give Zakat we must not drink, we must not gamble, you know, we must be tired, islamically and all that they have been listening to that continuously for centuries now for decades. But now comes along something novel in, in most specially people in the western environment. Like in the United States, or in any other country where Muslims are the Christian missionaries are making onslaughts like in India, and in Pakistan, and in Bangladesh, and Indonesia, wherever the Muslims are, they

00:37:02--> 00:37:45

find that they are under attack, and they don't know how to respond. They don't know how to respond to these Christian missionaries. So our teams are doing their job. So there is a demand all over the world. So the department is expanding and increasing the literature. We need especially departments to cater for the amount of correspondent that's coming in, you know, it's what we didn't handle in a year, we handle in a week now. We're in the old places, all offices, what we didn't do in a year, in a week, there are piles and piles of letters, we have to discover some new methods of handling them, because we can see that they are all now drowning us. My name is smile and I am responsible for the

00:37:45--> 00:37:58

receiving of the correspondence that comes into the Islamic Propagation center. We receive an average of about 100 to 150 letters per day from all countries in the world.

00:38:00--> 00:38:30

The percentage of letters that we receive in the various areas are about 50% from the African states, namely Ghana, Nigeria, Kenya, Sierra Leone, and the surrounding areas. The rest of the letters we receive from countries like the UK, USA, South America, India, Australia, we have even received letters from as far as Siberia and Alaska.

00:38:31--> 00:38:41

The contents of these letters or the requests contained in this letter letters vary from literature requests to video requests.

00:38:44--> 00:38:56

The people people requesting literature also inquire about the activities of the organization and the other facilities that we offer.

Messiah Ratan Tata Marathi lol me at yoga technology at masa, Marcus computer.

00:39:19--> 00:39:37

information that we are entering on the computer is from the letters that we have received from correspondents all over the world. We have two special files. One is our local files which are stored stored in in this room. And the other one is insidious files which are very suspicious files.

00:39:38--> 00:39:59

For the size on computer, and we have approximately 7000 tapes on the computer at present. The correspondent is coming at me is drowning us. Each and every department who are handling the opening department they have to find out the latest given to different departments. These are orders to be executed. This is just free literature required. These are people

00:40:00--> 00:40:13

Asking questions. What do you know how to answer the questions. So then this visit is coming along from the masjid. They want to know further about Islam, then conversion taking place people come along, they want to be converted to Islam,

00:40:14--> 00:40:37

either from Hinduism or Islam, or from Christianity to Islam generally from Christianity and Buddhism, we get a lot of converts. But now before we convert anybody I know the old practice was that anybody wants to be converted. We say now you want to become a Muslim? The man says yes, is that I read the Shahada. So where is that you say lai lai, la llamada de la, la la la la mano de sola.

00:40:39--> 00:40:59

And then we say, now look from today, my name is Muhammad. Ali is a lady's alija Fatima, and, you know, you must make Salah, and so on and zoom as fast when Ramadan comes, and we let them go, this is what usually used to happen. From now on, you must be gone, and you're a Muslim, or a Muslim. And

00:41:00--> 00:41:28

now we have a system that anybody wants to embrace Islam, he or she must at least go through four lectures. So in these four lectures, what we do is is that we disabuse their minds about all the prejudices, they have a concept of God, they say, there is one God, but the concept is not the Islamic concept. This one God with this history in one is Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. So we have to disabuse our minds that Jesus is not.

00:41:29--> 00:41:40

The Holy Ghost is not God, there's only one God, and that God Almighty, we call him Allah. And Muhammad is not a law, you have to explain to the angels are the books of God, that the Quran is

00:41:41--> 00:42:03

the Bible, as they have got it now is not preserved. So we have to explain, and Jesus didn't die for anybody's sins that is not God and he was not crucified to the Hindu, he said, she believes in one God. But when you ask him who is Rama is is God, who is Krishna, it is God, who is Buddha, this is God. So we see what is his God

00:42:04--> 00:42:46

and on and on, he gives you a man gods, he gives you women, gods, you animal gods, but poor man he doesn't know. So we have to disabuse this man's clarify his thought. And then if the person accepts all the teachings of Islam, the fundamentals and the requirements of the Sharia, he agrees, then we tell him to have a good bath, Islamic bath and come back and we will bring him into his lab. So all these different different departments handling, you know, for the Zulu, there's a person handling the Zulu convert, there is a person handling the English speaking convert. So, each and every department that we have, are so busily occupied

00:42:48--> 00:43:24

we are looking for a way in shall love smoothing out our what you would say teething troubles, because we have grown up suddenly into this huge size. We came to this place about a year ago and since then, you know that things have snowball snowball to such an extent that the with the computer and the fax machines and and the telex machines, we still can't cope up. So we have now exploited the machines, these electronic wizards by creating what we call Islamic telecoms.

00:43:25--> 00:43:28

We have to in the present moment

00:43:29--> 00:43:41

in our own building here to have our shops know we took them over shops in the building and chain them into slamming telecoms. What happens there is that in the window, we have a monitor

00:43:42--> 00:43:55

that at least 16 hours a day our programs are being played passers by being attracted. Then inside we have seating accommodation that people can sit inside, watch the monitor inside, in comfort.

00:43:57--> 00:43:59

At 10 o'clock we give them everybody free tea.

00:44:23--> 00:44:25

This is a textbook on insects.

00:44:40--> 00:44:52

Among our lecture activities, she says listening to people in the masjid Muslim to Muslims, then getting visitors to the mosque and during the lectures in public places on comparative religion.

00:44:53--> 00:44:59

We have gone into a new field of doing buenas eras with the Christians and

00:45:00--> 00:45:11

The advantage of that is that it attracts the maximum number of people and it makes things more interesting. Instead of just me or lecturing, we talk about was Christ crucified?

00:45:13--> 00:45:30

The 1000 200 million Christians say yes 1000 million Muslims say no way lies the truth You be the judge attracts people. Then subjects like is Jesus God, we had a debate in the Royal Albert Hall London at Royal Albert Hall was too small.

00:45:42--> 00:45:43

Jesus was born the

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

reverse in question is for Salaam

00:45:50--> 00:45:51

Yamamoto

00:45:54--> 00:46:00

which translated means, so PCs on me, the day that I was born, the day that I die

00:46:02--> 00:46:08

to life again, the day that I die, it is not that it is not died in the future,

00:46:10--> 00:46:51

then we have no started training, that is people who can go and propagate the slap. Because the Muslims all over the world where I go and lecture, they seem to have taken a liking to my approach. Because something that was lacking in that the Muslim didn't know how to approach the non Muslim, the Jews, the Christians and Hindus. And I am showing them how it can be done. To me is just a very natural thing to do. which Allah, Allah gives us a secret in the Holy Quran, when he says, tell them the Al Kitab or people have the book or Jews and Christians come

00:46:52--> 00:47:06

elac Kelly matienzo I'm Ben and avena that we come to common terms as between us and you. Let us get onto a common platform, some understanding about basics. And then Allah, Allah tells us what to talk about.

00:47:07--> 00:47:17

But now we have not been doing that because we don't know how, unless telling you on a common platform talk about this. Allah Namba, la la la la Lucia in

00:48:50--> 00:48:53

dear brothers, we have gathered here today

00:48:54--> 00:49:00

at the tail end of our program, which began in April,

00:49:01--> 00:50:00

and we have gone through a lot of work. A lot of questioning a lot of fact finding and researching and Hungary Latvia found that all of you are enthusiastic. And you have the zeal, inshallah, to spread the word of Islam and to and to dispel whatever is wrong in the world of Islam. As far as the thoughts and thinking about Islam is concerned. We have a great job of work to do. He will go back to your homes and your homelands. And you will see inshallah, that what we have initiated here, will carry on and on and on. So therefore, become articulators of Islam. This is why he is when we can open his mouth and we can do something we don't mind if

00:50:00--> 00:50:14

You can write, keep on writing, but see that you become articulate in what you have learned here. And I have been very happy with the class as a whole country law, we have had very close cooperation and I myself have learned

00:50:15--> 00:51:00

immensely from the experiences of the others. And as there is no finality as far as any knowledge is concerned, there is no finality I have been learning we have been learning, we will keep on learning from each other, and each other's experiences, and inshallah, we will march along together throughout the world, in order to allow the flag of Islam to fly high. And that will be the day which allows Pamela tala, he has promised us that they that they will come, and we can be part and parcel and soldiers and warriors in his way. And this is the work of the prophets. And it has got the reward that profits deserved. And Allah subhanaw taala has given us this opportunity, and we

00:51:00--> 00:51:39

must take it. And what we are hoping is that we train them in this method of doing our non Muslims that they in turn, they can go back into their own respective countries, and share with the people that knowledge that they have gathered here. And in sharing, they'll get more and create centers of their own. Because the thing is getting unwieldy is getting so big, is getting more or less out of proportion, our center here, we want centers to be created all over that each and every one independently, can carry on, we'll give them all the help that we can, but independently, they can do what we are doing here. So this is our aspiration. And in that we are prepared to help Muslims

00:51:39--> 00:51:48

all over the world to see that they do propagation work. This is our speciality and we want to share this speciality with the Muslims all over the world.
