00:01:20--> 00:01:32

an exciting series of episodes, in which we should address specific and significant questions and deal with their answers, respectively.

00:01:33--> 00:01:47

First of all, let me shed some light on the program itself. Islam quest. quest, according to Oxford Dictionary means search for something. And Islamic quest

00:01:48--> 00:01:54

is a program that invites you that invites you to search for Islam.

00:01:56--> 00:02:08

You see, we as responsible and sensible human beings, blessed with intellect, it would be unfair and unjust, on our part,

00:02:09--> 00:02:23

to accept something on hearsay, to believe on something based on assumption or illusion. It is therefore imperative upon us that we reason

00:02:25--> 00:02:57

reflect, understand, ponder and quest. The reality. Islam is the most famous religion in the world today. Islam is unfortunately, the most misunderstood religion in the world today. And Islam is the fastest growing religion in the world today. Islam also has the second largest followers in the world today. So is it not important

00:02:58--> 00:03:00

that we quest for Islam?

00:03:01--> 00:03:04

Whether you are a Muslim, or non Muslim,

00:03:05--> 00:03:09

we have to quest for Islam.

00:03:11--> 00:03:17

quest for Islam, which is based on authentic sources

00:03:18--> 00:03:48

with the logic, reason, rational understanding and scientific perspective, which would eventually help you to understand the reality, you as Muslims would eventually would eventually benefit by strengthening your spirit of Islam. And you, as non Muslims would have the fair viewpoint of Islam.

00:03:50--> 00:03:58

In today's episode, we should address the question why only Islam?

00:04:00--> 00:04:08

This is a very candid and valid question. But the people of other faiths they say why only Islam?

00:04:10--> 00:04:25

You see, as Allah subhanho wa Taala says in Surah Allah marohn surah number three and number 85 woman yep tvheadend Islami Dino following yoke Bella Minho. Wahoo of in our Hara t Mina, la serien

00:04:26--> 00:04:56

whosoever comes with any other way of life, with any other religion, other than Islam, it would never be accepted by Almighty God, Allah the Most tired and in the Hereafter, he will be among the losers. So Muslims are explicit in stating that there is no other way of life. There is no other religion. There is no other faith that will be accepted by Allah Almighty.

00:04:57--> 00:04:59

So they asked these questions, but what

00:05:00--> 00:05:19

Other reasons? What are the reasons why only Islam? Well, there are so many reasons why only Islam. However, in this episode, we should address the top 10 reasons why only Islam.

00:05:21--> 00:06:17

The first reason why only Islam is the name Islam itself. The name Islam is a meaningful and Divine Name. It is not a name given by any creation. It is not a name which is founded by any person. It is the Divine Name. It is the name which was given by Allah Almighty himself. Allah subhanho wa Taala sees into the Allium Ron surah. Number three is number 19 in Edina, and the law Hill Islam, verily, the only way of life, the only religion accepted in the sight of Allah is Islam. This is Islam. The name itself distinguishes from all other religions of the world.

00:06:18--> 00:06:22

Moreover, it is a meaningful name. It means

00:06:23--> 00:07:08

submission and peace, you submit to none except the Creator. You do not submit any Islam to any creation, rather you submit to the one and only creator, Allah Almighty. And that's how you acquire peace by submitting yourself to the will of Allah Almighty. So the first reason why only Islam is the name Islam itself. The second reason why only Islam is because it has clear, pure and complete concept of God.

00:07:09--> 00:07:30

You see, there is not a single religion, which has clear, pure and complete concept of God, as Islam has, although we find that even in other religions, they preach, they preach and it is mentioned in their own religious scriptures

00:07:31--> 00:07:45

that believe in one God. For example, if we study the Old Testament, which is believed by both Jews and the Christians to be a revelation from God Almighty, when we read

00:07:46--> 00:08:32

the book of Deuteronomy, chapter number six, verse number four, it says Shama Is there a law, and not in a hurry? No, it no effort, heroes in the Lord, our God is only one law. When we see in the New Testament, in Gospel of Mark, chapter 12, verse number 29, Jesus Christ, please be born him. He said the same thing. The first of all the commandments is that you must believe in one Almighty God. And the similar thing is mentioned. Even in the Hindu religious scripture. It is mentioned in chandogya Upanishad, chapter number six, section number two, verse number one, it says, a waiver of victim God is only one without a second.

00:08:33--> 00:09:14

But then, is it? Is it completely important? Is it completely enough for us to know only one God? Or there is something beyond that as well? For sure, just knowing that there is one God would not suffice the fate, you need to know who that God is? And what are his qualities? What are his names? What are his attributes? And that is how that is how Islamic concept of God distinguishes from all the other concepts of God in other religions, the Islamic concept of God, can we present it

00:09:15--> 00:09:32

in a very precise and concise manner? Allah Almighty defines himself once again, mark these words. We as humans cannot define God. It is God Himself. Allah himself who defines him.

00:09:33--> 00:09:59

He said, Our Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim in Surah Nicholas, all who Allah who say He is Allah, the One and Only Allah summit, he is absolute and eternal, lambda lit Willem uled. He does not have any children, neither any parents, while Aamir Khan, Lucas Juana and there is nothing

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

Whatsoever like unto God Almighty.

00:10:05--> 00:10:22

These are the four powerful lines of definition that Allah Almighty has shared with us. So that we may know, understand and reflect upon it. A lot of mighty says at the first on who Allahu Ahad, he is a lot of one and only,

00:10:23--> 00:10:39

there is none in the creation, who is one, and that is how Islam brings you from the worship of creation, to the worship of creator. It clearly demarcates it clearly distinguish

00:10:41--> 00:10:48

the difference between the creator and the creation, by stating he is only one

00:10:49--> 00:11:21

Allah Almighty. And then he says, allow summit, he is absolute and eternal, there is no one who is independent, we the creation, by definition, we the creation are dependent on someone who is the creator, but the Creator, he is not dependent on anybody, he is absolute, he is independent, nothing he requires, but v require everything we the creation requires everything.

00:11:22--> 00:12:07

And that is how Allah subhanaw taala defines himself to be absolute, and eternal. He is eternal, he does not die, the one who dies, how can you be God? The one who dies? How can he control the universe? How can he control the creation? Therefore, Allah Almighty, He is absolute, and he is eternal, ever living. And he is the one who does not have any children. Because he doesn't need any children, neither any parents. He doesn't require any parents. Rather, he's the one who blessed us with the children who bless us with the parents. Allah Almighty, He is the one and only there is no similitude of God Almighty.

00:12:11--> 00:12:39

Allah subhanho wa Taala He is the Creator of the heavens and the earth. And that is what the Islamic concept of God in Islam, that he is one and only the Creator of the heavens and the earth. And this is how Islam distinguishes itself. Islam proclaims, this is a strong reason why we say only Islam.

00:12:40--> 00:12:54

We'll take a short break and we'll continue our episode on the top 10 reasons why only Islam blow that we are living in
