Bismillah Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem
wahlen Tada and Kalia gudo valen nesara Hata
sadaqa, LA, Santa Coloma, Mr. Chairman, and my dear brothers and sisters, and my little children.
It gives me great pleasure, I am very, very happy indeed, to be here on your island.
And to meet my brother in here, which I didn't imagine existed,
the multi violence, you know, very small group of islands, sometimes on the map of the world, we don't even see them.
But I find that it is a reality. Muslims and good Muslims are that I am very, very happy to be associated with you all.
And while I'm here, actually, I came here to this conference.
I wanted to have a closer contact with the people. And I'm very, very grateful
to my brother and for giving me this opportunity of coming to you and speaking to you. Most specially this afternoon on the subject of missionary inroads.
and the previous two Semitic religions, the Jews and the Christians has been with Islam from its earliest beginnings.
As soon as I wanna be a Kareem salatu salam made the hegira the migration from Makkah to Medina, he was forced to by circumstances, the music's of NACA had made life untenable for him.
And he had to make the hegira
in Medina, he was surrounded by Jews and Christians. See, in Makkah, it was all missions mutual, exclusions, idol worshippers, pagans.
But in Medina and around Medina, there was a more sophisticated community, people who had previous religious scriptures,
the Jews and the Christians.
And when the people of Medina began accepting Islam, accepting of an obeah, Karim salatu salam, as a messenger of Allah,
they begin counting the Muslims. This is you are following this.
A person who is unlettered who doesn't know how to read right? You know, he's gonna mislead you. He's gonna guide you.
If you want to go to heaven,
if you want salvation, blah, blah, Jana.
So either you become a Jew said the Jews, or you become a Christian said the Christians. And Allah records that for us in His eternal book,
the Holy Quran
I read a very brief verse from the Holy Quran
from Surah Baqarah
Surah Baqarah verse number 111 111.
We Allah says wahlen taraba
wahlen Massara Hakka millet upon the Jews and the Christians will never never be satisfied with you all Muslims, allies telling us
this is what he says that the Jews and the Christians will never never learn. I come across many brethren here who know Arabic. See on a percentage basis mu Muslims here they know Arabic they might people in South Africa. Very few a handful of us know Arabic. We read the Quran, all of us they read the Quran, but very few can speak Arabic. You seem to have been in touch with Alaska and you have graduates from Alaska coming along and living in your midst your own people. We are not that fortunate in South Africa. We have a very sophisticated community but very few knew Arabic
As a language, you are very fortunate. Those of you who know Arabic, you will be able to verify that lesson learned means never, never, most certainly not
wahlen para de
la sala tatata vemula kahun, that the Jews and the Christians will never never be satisfied with you, unless you follow the brand of religion.
And this is an eternal truth with us. wherever we are, we find the same situation. No matter how much backward, we've been trying to appease the people.
They will not be satisfied with you unless they swallow you. Unless they make you a Christian. The Portuguese understand we're here
on your islands, very nice people, gentle people, obedient people, easily enslaved.
Nice time people kind hearted.
Up. So they came here and they made a home. And they found that the people are amenable, you can do what you like to go. So I'm given to understand that they had a brainwave the Pope,
his holiness of the time, the pope in Rome, he made a pronouncement, send a decree, convert these people, baptize them all.
them in in the water and take them out as Christian, the Muslims put him in as Muslim and take him out as Christian, baptize them all.
And one of your heroes.
He realized what was happening, that the whole nation was going to go to the dogs whole nation.
So he revolted. And he succeeded in boosting the Portuguese. So you have Muslims today. Allah has not been in the 15th century or so. Or would you have been dipped in the water and taken out as Christians and all today you're eating pieces of bread.
In what is called the Holy Communion. He said, this is the flesh of Jesus, we'll be drinking wine is that this is the blood of Jesus. That would have been your pastime. Every Sunday morning, eating the flesh of Jesus in drinking the blood of Jesus.
You are safe and
you can never thank Alena for that.
So, they are they want to convert you they don't just satisfied us slaving for them.
You can do the work at the other meeting at the double.
They are not satisfied, they must have been converted.
And this is an experience in eternal experience the Muslims are having all over the world.
We Muslims we are telling the Christians in my country
that we Muslims we believe in Jesus
has he Salus Salah, we say Isa, Elisa, LA, Isa Jesus May peace be upon him, that we believe in him. We believe that he was one of the mightiest messengers of God.
We believe that he was born miraculously, without any male intervention, a miracle of Allah's creation. We believe that he gave life to the dead by God's permission, and he was born blind and the lepers by God's permission. And we believe
that Allah say that he gave life to the dead, and Allah saved him from an ignoble death on the cross.
Does that satisfy the Christians? No.
It doesn't satisfy them closes to the Christian.
We are also cruises to the Jews.
Amazing, amazing situation, that oil and water. We are claiming affinity relationship with both.
And it's the truth. There are no Jews here that I'm trying to flatter you are no Christians. I take it that I'm trying to flatter you. I'm not trying to flatter anybody. This is a true position. We are the closest to the Jew, the yahoodi. In our concept of the divinity of God Almighty. The Jew says that God Almighty is absolutely one. You say we believe that he is one. They say he's a god. We say his same is the same word meaning the same thing is a linguistic difference. I had a say. They say God is unique. We say God is unique, which is God is not seen at any time. No man can see God and live and we agree with him. He says we must not eat the fish of swine. He said we will not eat
the flesh of swine. He says no eating of blood. He says we will need blood is a circumcision. We said you're circumcised.
The Maldivians, do they circumcise? They do yes
We are agreed in the Muslim world, we are going together does that satisfy that? No, no,
that this is the Christians. When we say we believe in Jesus, He is the mercy, the Merciful law.
Nothing satisfies them, they want you to be baptized, put you in the water and take you out, put you in as Muslim and take you out as Christian transformation.
Now, my God, the sad experience of my people,
I come from India originally.
I come originally from India, from the west coast of India, you know, Bombay, you see it on the map of Bombay, a little above Bombay is a small portable surah. I come from that area. I migrated to South Africa in 1927.
Most of you were not born then I migrated there then, and most of my life I spend, but I originated in the indo Pakistan subcontinent.
Now, the sad experience that my people had
was that when the British conquered India,
they realized that at any time anybody will give them trouble, it will be the Muslims.
Because power rule, Dominion was wrenched out of their hands. And once you have tasted power, you yearn for it once more, you want to have it again, you tasted it power, it's very sweet, very pleasant.
You remember it
over and over again, you want it. So and the Muslims were a militant people,
compared to the Hindus of the time
they were then
in India, the nearest door sign is the cows that they were worshipping. I understand you have no cows here. You have no cows. But you know what a cow looks like. You will know
the country magical of worshipping the cow in India. You haven't got them.
So they've lost. The cow is a very docile animal.
Like the good Maldivians in a very nice kind hearted.
It's not a very good quality. I assure you, it's a very good quality.
I say you are very good people. But when you're so sweet.
People have a tendency to you know that. He says human human failing when we find people are very nice. We take advantage over the good nature.
So my father used to tell me,
he says My son will be so sweet that people eat chew you up.
And don't be so bitter that they spit you out.
I think I've tried to hit that one. You know, don't be too sweet. And don't be so bitter. You people are very sweet. is there's a danger there. There's a danger there.
However, see the Christians, the British they felt that if we can change the Muslim if we can convert them
if we can teach them to turn the other cheek, because Jesus Christ is supposed to have said in the Christian Bible, that he who strikes you on the right cheek during the other
night if we can make the Muslims to do that. We can lose them for 1000 years. So they started pouring in the missionaries,
teachers, preachers, priests into India like frogs in the rainy season. I see you have a rainy season here. But I don't see many frogs we have frogs,
talking to people, they have no
frogs on this. I
understand you have no dogs, no dogs, no dogs, no pigs, one local country.
So I will start telling you everything what a dog is like and what a dog does and how it behaves and the pig what it does.
Sure you learn all this at school, you know, I wouldn't waste my time with you.
So they started pouring in the missionaries like frogs in my country in India. In rainy season the frogs come out by the 1000s. If I said frogs in the rainy season,
you have a continuous rainy season, so the frogs would come out.
And these missionaries, you see they started challenging the Muslims to public debates.
Thinking by getting our alum on the platform, debating with him and making a fool out of him in front of the people that everybody will get converted.
This was the psychology.
So this started challenging the Muslims to public debates.
At first the Muslims were elected naturally, these people had just conquered us. And if some of our islands speak a bit to militantly like people have a tendency to say Mr. D that speak to militantly is to militate even nice kinds of people to talk nice, sweetie sweetie goody goody.
I don't know Allah has made
the mic systems fail, I can still talk to you all at the back. This is something Alaskan me my voice, my height everything is given to me. I didn't acquire it and gave it to me. And I'm using it and it's paying dividends. It gives me good returns.
But now some of Verbruggen who are a bit new to me, this is too loud. He gets hot under the collar.
He's too militant.
You know, he will speak softly kindly.
So the people were afraid, going in debating with the Christian,
the ruler people and getting into some political difficulty. They might send you to the Andaman Islands then I don't know they knew about Maldives. You know that was close Andaman Islands they call them Kala Pani Blackwater's. This is no No, no rather keep out of harm's way. silence is golden.
So, and we didn't know the language, we couldn't speak English, our people our learning, they only knew Farsi and the native language. They didn't know the language of the rulers.
So the missionaries, they mastered the language.
And this is the genius of the Western. You know, if you allow him to make inroads into your country, in three months time, we'll learn your language.
And they'll talk to you in your language, they'll present to you the Bible in your language.
Not in English or Arabic that they have plenty. But in your own native tongue and in your own script, you know, the script that you are writing, I can read that script, they'll give it to you and you lap it up. You can't help it is human nature, your mother tongue, there's nothing sweeter to a man than his own mother tongue. There is no better way to get into the heart of a person than through his own mother tongue. If I could speak your language, one louder spoken at you.
So this master the mastering our language.
And now they started chanting the Muslims to debates in
the language of the elite in India. The album's are learned men what to do. So the younger generation persuaded a Maulana Abdul Aziz of Delhi, the column Maulana Abdul Aziz della v means of Delhi.
Luke Maulana Sahib, who's respected learned man molana, I wanted to understand, you know,
the spectra share.
They want to debate with us in our own mother tongue.
How can you say no, so the poor man was forced to agree. And a certain Reverend founder, who was the head of this Krishna 10 missionary movement.
He and lamola had a debate and 100,000 people gathered.
I don't know how voice was carried those days, there was no mic system that, you know, no loudspeakers, but people, they had that fun of it from a distance, I can see what's going on there, like tiny little pins, you know, they're standing there on a platform, and they saying something's pretty easy. What did you say and everybody pass on something, whatever they imagine
the model, I get one packet.
This is how they got vicarious pleasure to see.
So according to the appointed time and date, the debate starts.
Now, this, I was reading in a book, Collins harville Hawke, and that book changed my life that made me to come here today.
To see I'm reading all this in a book
that the debate starts
with Reverend founder suggesting to the Mawlana is that Maulana Sahib get started. Sure.
So the Mawlana says, you see, you Christians, you are our elder brother.
Because Christianity preceded Islam by 600 years.
Christianity is 600 years older than Islam. As such, you are our elder brothers and according to our culture,
our human behavior, our elder brother has the first preference.
you are a guest
no doubt an unwelcome guest, but a guest that that as such also, according to our culture, you have the first preference.
So the Reverend was forced to start the debate and he started with a question
Is it Mawlana Sahib respected Maulana Sha ma?
Where is your Prophet Muhammad now, Nana this minute.
So the molana thought for a moment and he said that he is in general to fill those heavenly bliss with Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Out of that answer in the second question, it was all prepared, worked out plan strategy said all right, all right now tell us more Lana's ahead, respected Malala Where was your Prophet Muhammad when his grandson Hussein was martyred at Karbala met *gy at Karbala when he was 18.
So the molana again thought for a moment.
And he said that he was still in general for those heavenly bliss with Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Out of that answer in the third question, said all right, all right. Tell us Mawlana say
that if your Prophet Muhammad was with his Allah, in Jannah, in heaven, when his grandson Hussein was being martyred, much butchered at Karbala. Didn't he ask Allah for help?
if somebody is taking unfair advantage over me, I'm an old man of 70 years.
I can ask my younger brother So look, man, this follows taking advantage man please, you know come to the rescue one that is natural. So if you have God Almighty there by your side
and somebody is butchering your grandson, naturally will ask for help. Since he asked his Allah for help.
there was a long pause.
Since Come on, come on. Come on, come on. So the molana said, Yes, he did.
Say, what did Allah say? Because we know he wasn't saying
What did he say?
And there was an inordinate pause. overlong pause.
So the Reverend started beating his feet again. Come on, come on wins. What did Allah say?
So the molana began slowly that Allah cried in Allah.
Allah cried, a lot cried because I couldn't see my own son Jesus. How can I say your grandson?
And it was Oh,
The Christian says that Jesus Christ on the cross, he cried, oh, my father Li lol.
Oh, my father, oh my god. Why has the forsaken? God let him down according to the Bible.
From the Jews, the most despicable community, they kill my son and I couldn't do anything. Oh, can I save your grandson? Plus the Beatles over it was a matching of the width. It had nothing to do with true or false.
This is just is a matching of your width cleverness who gets in first as the same goes price armed is he whose causes just but price and is He who gets in first.
Like the Jews anytime you see the Muslims talking.
It gives it a preemptive strike 48 they're knocked out oh brothers 56 and knock them out 67 did not come out.
causes right back the other guy gets it gives it to you knocks you out. So this was a matching of wits who gets in first knockout blow the debate was over.
This type of conflicts have been going on. And the Christian missionary is in trying to make the inroads into Muslim hearts and minds into Muslim territories.
Another example of an added chef and added chef
you people have been very fortunate or unfortunate. You never had these experiences unfortunate unfortunate that you have been saved from this fire. So far, so far.
No longer you know seas are no longer barriers. ideas. They don't need ships to cross the oceans anymore. They don't need ships become airwaves. minds of men, you send your son children for further education. And they the brainwashing takes place it is an eternal battle can be helped. You can live in isolation. You can say now we are immune from any type of danger. There's no such thing.
clipping your own children will bring them in, you send them to Russia for education, free education, when they come back your own, they will be reaching with communism.
This is human nature. You can pick up wherever you go Alhamdulillah
they came up with Arabic, you send them to Russia, they come back with communism. This is natural, natural.
So this era chef, he was confronted by a missionary, and he, he keeps on coming every day, preaching Christ crucified, Christ died for your sins.
You see, this is the only sales point that the Christian has.
In my country, I'm boasting.
In my country, I boast for my community. I said, We are Muslims.
We are the most hospitable people in the country.
We are the most ethical moral people in the country. We have the lowest alcoholic consumption in the country. We have the lowest gambling rate in the country. We have the lowest prison rate in the country. We have the lowest suicide rate in the country, and we have the highest charity rate in the country. There is not another nation in my country who can show a candle to us to tell us that we are better than you.
What is there? What can you teach me?
What can you teach me?
You can teach us nothing. Nothing.
The only thing he can tell me is that Christ died for your sins.
So all these good works of yours he says, I like filthy rags, you know, rags, rags.
Cheeto rags. Do you like things with rags? All your good deeds, is quoting from the Bible are like filthy rags.
salvation by an agenda only comes through the blood of the Lord Jesus you believe that Christ died for your sin. Salvation is yours. No man what a
rapist and a murderer you are, you will go to heaven. The Muslim history jackets is live is America's ethical, charitable people, hospitable people they'll all go to hell.
This is his philosophy. This is what he believes. So the only thing he can tell us is that Christ died for your sins otherwise we can teach you nothing.
So this missionary got stuck into this era of Christ died for your sins Yahshua you wasting your time praying five times a day, up and down, up and down you killing yourself
you killing yourself fasting one whole month, winter or summer is what hungry for that for your fast.
So you see you wasting your time. You stay jacket, a jacket in your life. So you can eat this and you can eat all this is going hungry for that.
Making life miserable for the
what to do? And these missionaries are busy meaning they have patience and perseverance which we lack. We haven't got it. We are impatient very quickly. I don't
care guys. I haven't tested you out yet.
But generally, you know the Christian missionary, if you give him your finger, he'll never let you go until you're converted. Would you tell him one day say
I don't want you to darken my door. Again, I put a knife to you. Maybe that might keep him away.
Otherwise he'll never let you go do my finger and catch you by the hand and keep you there. So this poor out of chef he doesn't know what to do. Life is miserable.
So he thinks of a plan and he tells his ministers to look next time this guy comes along
please come and whisper something in my ears.
Plan is late next morning the guys logo
and the Muslim they added specially
you know these are the most beautiful words of welcome in any language.
Just think that you are a member of the family. And sadly it is like in the army there's a standard ease. Now you can pick your nose you can do what you like.
Attention Attention even the flies buzzing around you You mustn't shake your head but when you stand at ease now you can do what you like. So like the island masala. Look, just think you're a member of the family. You don't have to put up any airs. You know how you behave. You're one of Alan masala
and he just can't help that's his nature.
Although in his heart, he says you want to stab the follow knife him but other than that
Hello, they are very good, very good for them. You see I'm not jealous, we must try and beat one another in good works. I do produce beautiful books.
All this picture of the masjid over quarter million we have given out one of the largest musters in the southern hemisphere, like your mustard here, which you can also do with the principles of Islam on the reverse. When people visit the mosque, I give them this as a momento and with that goes the principles of Islam if you give them principle of Islam as soon as it goes out discussion and throws it away, that's a no no, give him something nice to keep.
Muhammad, the prophet of Islam, three is the Bible God's word free. Look at this production. crucifixion of crucifixion 300,000 at a time free all this Christ in Islam free what the Bible beautiful productions
but as the Pakistanis meet me look at this the giving this to people free in Pakistan and I wonder the kiss it
allows named Muhammad's name on the kissing, but the people give me no chance so I put it in my pocket.
And I didn't have a chance and Karachi next day. I was going to Dubai and in Dubai in my hotel sitting on the bed. So let me clear my pockets. I figured out I read it. Allah Muhammad. Something else I can read this. I see here beautiful sticker. He says a Ba ba ba ba ba atina dunya Senato. I'm thinking when I turn them upside down, we get the back a calendar, Julio calendar, something there's something there.
It says here the Lord's Prayer, says the Lord's Prayer. See we don't talk like that.
He says rafati Hi, Fatiha. The opening chapter. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil alameen below say the Lord's Prayer to me. Look up again. This is not Abernathy. navodaya Sonata This is abana Oh the Christian prayer. Our Father which art in heaven, hallowed be thy name. Thai kingdom come Thy will be done in a
beautiful Islamic calligraphy. They know how to catch fish, our children they pick it up this turn it out and put it in the Quran.
This and the mother will be happy because the father is all Mashallah who gave me my child so some cha cha some Uncle Uncle. Mashallah beautiful.
Everybody says Allah Muhammad, Allah you are a bit far. If you are closer, you would also agree Allah Muhammad. But this is not Allah Muhammad is Allahabad.
Lucas at this, the caligraphy is exactly as we read Allah Muhammad. They wrote Allahabad, but you're reading Allah Muhammad. Everybody's making the mistake. Allah Muhammad is an old chef. And Adam chef in Jeddah.
Sure, of mud.
An elderly man like me, I showed him this.
I said, you see, yes, they gave me this in Karachi, says Allah Muhammad doesn't have a good look. So it looks against Allah Muhammad Yahshua. Have another good look.
Denis Olam, haba Xia Olam, haba that is what the Christian is saying that God is love.
Love is not his attribute. Allah give us 99 attributes. He is Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah who He is Allah besides whom there is no other God, Al Malik, the king could use the Holy One, a salam, the source of peace and perfection and on and on 99 attributes, but marhaba is not one of them. They get into your house Allah, Allah Maha and consume in Egypt, one of the greatest singers that the Arab world had produced a woman beautiful sing. I used to hear her some time, although I don't understand Arabic.
And she was singing on Cairo radio, Allahu Allah muhabba. And we think this is Islam.
Somebody brainwashed her and brainwashing the whole nation. Can you see masterstroke? So geniuses? These are the inroads? You know, they know how to catch fish. There's so much here. But I was given 45 minutes. And I think I have already exceeded 45 minutes. So I would rather leave this meeting whatever few minutes we have are more open to questions. And I prefer questions from the floor for a number of reasons. See, any coward can write anything.
And we too can behave cowardly what suits as we answer what suits us we answer No. I want to give you the opportunity to stand up.
Then everybody knows that this is your question. So when I'm answering I'm looking at you and answering and watching you whether you are satisfied or not. Whether you are nodding your head this way or that way, I can see what is happening to you. I am talking to you the one who asked a question like this
From behind as the question I'm talking to the wall. And I don't know, this guy is saying he's nodding his head. So and it's also good for you. You see, you must learn, especially my children, you must learn to stand up and question stand up and speak out, because then it will create that ability in you to stand up and speak. And this is a very, very profitable
acquisition. Once you acquire that ability, one day inshallah you will also reach the top. You see, you might be a genius, but who has heard you? It's only when you stand up and you open your mouth, people discuss it, oh, man, we have a potential leader there. We have a potential leader in our debating says, Look, man, you may get the chairman or you become a secretary, anything. Stand up, open your mouth. Ask, Don't be afraid to make a fool of yourself, because that is the only way we learn. Go ahead. And I think with the permission of the chairman, leave the meeting open. If there are no questions at all. If you are too cowardly to stand up and ask then you can write but the
first preference should be given to people who can stand up and ask your question. I will answer less waste of wastage of time. Go ahead, please.
Yes, yes. Yes. Yes. The I think you for the benefit of those who might not have been able to hear, I will repeat your question
that the Christian say that Jesus Christ is coming back. The Muslim also say he's coming back. We believe that our Nivea Kareem salatu salam, the Holy Prophet Muhammad is hockman. He is the last of the prophets, there shall be no prophets after him.
But when Jesus Christ comes,
he's a prophet. So how can he come when the Hartman Libyan has already come?
That is a problem. But there is no real problem. You see, if you take any worldly example, the Shah of Iran, you know, the Shah of Iran.
I think in 1983, he ran away he had to flee, and America through certain machination, they put him back again.
But suppose suppose he was not reinstated, and another shower was taking his place. And then this guy returns.
He returns to the country. So look, MST is granted to him.
What is it returning as Sha, his title is the Shah, Mohammad Shah, Hillary, right, but he's returning as a Shah or as a subject of Khomeini
is returning as a subject. They will King abdicates. He is a king, King George the fifth sets a replicator six. He advocates, he still got the title, he was King George the fifth, the sixth. And there is another change that last king of Britain was so and so.
But this guy still alive after 80 years, 90 years is still there. When he comes back from another country. He said, Well, King George, you know, will say add certain thing, but he's still King, but he's not the king of the places but the title. So the profit is a profit. But what does it come and do a profit job is to give you new guidance in new revelation, and
we Muslims, we don't need anything new.
And that is in the Quran. Long before just a little before our Prophet passed away. He
says this day I have perfected for you your religion.
to LA community I have completed my favorite and to you, Melissa Medina, and that Islam should be your religion finish. You don't need another prophet and mercy or Amati to come and tell you that instead of making three rockets for maglev, you make four.
You don't have anybody to come and tell you that you can apply fastener for 40 days instead of 30. You don't need
anybody to come and teach you anything? Everything that Allah wanted to give you, he's given it to you in this column M is the life example of the Prophet. So what is it gonna come and do?
See, the question still remains What is he gonna come and do? The answer is in the Christian Bible
is not our problem is a Christians problem I said this is in your book, the Bible, the Holy Bible,
in the Gospel of St. Matthews, there's a book called The Gospel of St. Matches is the first book of the New Testament. You see this book, The Bible is 66 books. This is an encyclopedia of 66 books, divided into Old Testament and New Testament, in the New Testament, that Matthew, Mark, Luke, john, and so on 27 books. The first book is called Matthew, Gospel of St. Matthew. So in the Gospel of St. Matthews, we are told, supposed to be the words of Jesus. He says, Many will say to me, on that day,
of His second coming, or the last day, yo will tiama Many will say to me on that day, Lord, Lord, like God, God, did we not prophesy in the name, and entire name cast out devils, and in dynein do many mighty works? Did we do so many things for you, you know, we will look after the lepers, you know, this backward nations of the earth, we brought them into your religion, we baptize them, you know, people, often ages for them, we will hospitals for them, we educated them, we do all these things in your name. And we took out devils out of people in your name.
So Jesus in answer to that, he says, Then will I profess unto them, then I will tell them, I never knew you, Depart from me. He that work iniquity get away, you're rubbish, I don't even know you.
That's why he's going to tell you that you are off the track. See? Who is doing all these things? In the name of Jesus Muslims? Do we cast out devils from people in the name of Jesus? Do we do we will often is in the name of Jesus, or the Hindus, or the Buddhists or the atheists? Who does it? The Christian
he is doing in the name of Jesus. He's gonna tell you, not the Jews, he won't tell the Jews, Jews can be rubbish, he won't tell the Hindus. You won't tell the Muslim get away. Rubbish is gonna tell you. You who say Jesus is not God, God, God says Get away from me. I don't even know you. Because you are off the track. Instead of worshipping the one and only true God, you worshiping Jesus, for that reason is coming back to put you to the right track. We don't need anybody. We don't need a machine. We don't need the money. If the time comes, if the comes is welcome. But don't wait for anybody. Nobody's going to pull the chestnut out of the fire for you. You will have to do your own
work. Then we have been sitting back we are waiting. The Muslim world has been waiting. That's why Brock with this condition. We are in the gutter because you're waiting for somebody to pull you out of the gutter. Nobody's gonna pull you out of the gutter. This is not our last law. So Allah says in the law, Elijah, Jeremiah caminata.
Say Allah will not change the condition of the people unless you change yourself. He is not going to pick you up from the gutter and put you on the pedestal. You will have to work in sweat for it yourself. Yes. Any other question?
Yes, my son accom. Come forward, come forward. Those won't ask questions from from the back, please come forward. So we don't have to waste time. Anybody else in the meantime? Anybody else? In the meantime? Come come forward, come forward, come forward.
Anybody else in the meantime?
There's a mic. I didn't know. Come, come come from all of you and ask questions come forward here. There was a war going among Islamic.
There's a war going among the two Islamic nations between Iran and Iraq. So my point of question is, Is God punishing them? Or is it a hell on earth?
I'm told that the question is that there is a war going on between Iran and Iraq.
Whether that is God punishing them? Or whether this is hell on earth? That is the question. Well, it is hell alright. If you are there if you were in it, I tell you it is hell.
But this is man's own making. See, this is our own making hell we are making hell for ourselves. You have made a little heaven for yourself here in this country.
You see, there is another nation, same opportunity. They get the hell out of it. Bring you know like llama? Llama Llama. Here is an island. Lamb is an island just off Mombasa. That Long Island was 100% Muslim. Same like you
say Mali 100% Muslim lambu
100 was a Muslim.
And that place was like a veritable Medina business time when the examples I'm sorry, as angles.
All shops close. Everybody's querying for the mosque.
Maybe better than here everybody doesn't come for the mosque there.
The whole island goes into the mustards, fantastic community.
They were there it was a heaven on earth. You say this is the last paradise on earth. It is. His natural resources, beauty, unpolluted atmosphere beautiful. That was also a heaven on earth. Peace. That was also very peaceful community. Alhamdulillah good Muslims, as good as ourselves are better than us, lamb
back across the waters, this Africa with its enemies, pagans and Christians and these longer Muslims were not interested in that way
today, lung has more bars you know bars for drinking. Yes, no bars and bottle stores and dance halls and brothels on La more today than any other comparative size place in Kenya.
So the hell on earth, it was a heaven on earth. You allowed it you didn't want to change other people. They can change you now. So it is man who makes heaven or hell for himself as he says like a wonderful philosopher he says, Amal says in the ribbon t agenda be john D the hockey apne fitter admin and movie when
you see it is your deeds which make heaven or hell for you. You by your very nature, you're not intended for hell of a heaven, but you're gonna make it for yourself. So man is making hell for himself on this earth. And he can also create a heaven is left to him. He's in his hands, Allah has given it to him
for in which a lot of translation of polygon up to date I read and I have seen that even was made by rip sock Adam, Adam Elijah a piece of free. So sometime back about yesterday, I missed when I was a radio sir, in a ship on a ship. So I went Bombay and I met a Brahmin. He said that Shiva, Shiva Amador Chivas rapes was made Parvati his wife, Parvati is his wife, and Shiva is the Lord and the Shiva was amis Parvati was made by Lord Shiva.
So then these two has a similar meaning and relationship. That is why I would like to know whether there had been an error of this. You see my son, this rich story is not in the Quran.
This rich story you know about Allah making ademola salam and putting him to sleep and taking out his rib and putting flesh around it. This is in the Christian Bible. There is no such story in the Quran. So the Quran that you read this, he said you read it in the Quran, maybe some commentators some foolish commentator, you know, he must have read the Bible. And he introduces that idea into the his commentary. In the Arabic Quran. There is no such thing. Allah says he's made Adam and is made he of like nature, he made them both.
It doesn't speak about Allah taking out the ribbon, the good story is in the Bible. So this brand will follow if you knew next time you meet him, you tell him that this is in the Bible. And you ask the Christian that question, who got From whom?
This may be a very simple and silly question. But I would like to ask you this question there is yes.
The non believers very often ask us this question there is everything must be created by someone or somebody or somehow. So my question is, who created and how was God created?
very logical, very logical question. You see, it says, We all say God created everything.
So who created God
is just a passing time. We say God, who created was a God, who created him. So God who created is a God, advocate insofar as adequate, we have a little patience. We believe in life after death. We will all get up, resurrected and will be confronted by our Lord is a fantastic opportunity for us then to ask him where you come from. ask Allah where you come from, who made you ask him when he and you'll get the answer?
The answer will ask him to Casa where you come from.
Because your father asked, you
know, any other question, come, come, come, please don't waste time come in line up here, then we don't waste time anybody else?
Otherwise is the last question if there's no more?
What about the girls? I know the girls, they ask questions that really make you think. In other countries, the ladies, when they ask questions, it makes you really think.
And they really make you think, of course we don't love it.
It's a Greek philosopher, he said,
a Greek philosopher who said, if you want to make a man to hate you make him think.
Because we don't like to think it's easier to dig an acre of land than to think many people therefore don't want to think. But I know, my sisters and my daughters, we can make you think but its benefit was in the future, because it increases our knowledge by you asking questions, making us to think you see, our knowledge increases? Don't we don't like it for the moment. Yes, my son. Say in your speech, you said that the Christians are trying to catch us. So how are the Muslims claim to be protected from this? Do we have any way of protecting ourselves from from the Christians they are trying to catch us? So is there any way that we could be saved?
to be saved? What do you mean saved so that we will we won't be caught India or we wouldn't be caught napping?
You see, the only way is knowledge. When we have knowledge, there is safety, knowledge, knowledge, power, it gives you a shield of defense, it is a weapon of attack and defense knowledge. Knowledge is power. So without knowledge, we get caught out.
So for the moment, you people are relatively safe, relative.
In other words, there is no direct onslaught. The Christian missionaries, I don't know whether they know that you exist here. I don't know what it is.
Maybe doesn't know that you're here on the map of the world. But you have been, you know, somehow protected by some unseen power. I said in New York, you have 1 million women who can't get husbands if every man got married, but if your men power one third are gays, they call them gays.
Am I attacking you? This is what you were telling me I'm really repeating to you I said look, you have a problem. And the solution to your problem is in this book is not in a
that's all I'm telling you is you want a solution, we have it. Unfortunately we Muslims are not good examples. But Allah has given it to us, you and I, we can take it up and inshallah we can become the torch bearers of light and learning and a solution to the problems of mankind with this book, no matter how small you are, you and I, we can do the job. inshallah. I think we should.
Excuse me, this will be the last question. Please make your question very brief and quick. We have a meeting tomorrow. At the same time, it is kind of school.
Brother day that will be speaking on Muhammad, the natural successor to Jesus Christ.
So please make your question brief.
My brother, my question is this. Now, if we touch a dog via wash your hand certain times, not once or twice, thrice, we had to go through a hand seven times. My question is why is the dog is the most dirty standing?
What was the dog?
So if you touch the dog, he wash your hand seven times and
why does he have to do it? Look, you have no problem.
You have no dogs in the country. What are you worried about?
Why are you worried about
look, I think you know you're I don't know how it happened. You know, I want to go into your history. How it happened that your nation to all your archipelagos all your islands. You have no dogs. What happened? Did you eat them up? You know the Chinese they have come up.
The Chinese there's no dogs in China to accept, you know, people. They want to bring them from the outside and they put heavy taxes so dissuading people from bringing dogs into the country in China. But as a people as a whole, they wipe them out dogs, but they add them up. They added the dogs. What did you do? What happens?
They can become extinct by themselves. The dogs You know, they're hardy
so but you have no problem, you have no problem about eating the dog and having to watch seven times. And maybe you have a scarcity of water to let you have no problem. I said, when the problem arises, you can ask your mom inshallah he'll give you a satisfactory answer.
So, gather data on behalf of all the brothers and sisters who are present here today. I thank you very much for your excellent speech.
And this is just a reminder again that tomorrow at the same time, we will have another lecture from brother did up, but this time, it will be it is kind of school and not Armenian school. And the topic for tomorrow's discussion will be
