is God commands.
This particular topic is
what the dialogue has,
when it has to tackle and make clear
we told him
to tell people about
the issue of design,
but much of what the message of so he
addresses is also addressed
when we look at all of the various religions around the world,
and we look at Islam and the unique concept that Islam has of God,
we'll find that
the vast majority of the religions
are tipped over this point
People worship the creation,
instead of the Creator.
what they perceive as being their highest form of nature,
which is not
even when they are worshipping other beings in creation,
you will find there is a link between man and then
and then worshiping man ultimate
man worship. And so
if we take for granted
that the belief
held by major religions,
we can say that, again,
held in Islam
is unique amongst the views of God.
It's unique not only in a concept, how God is perceived, but also in the fact that
the concept of God has not evolved.
as Muslims, that
the understanding of God
as Prophet Muhammad
was not a new understanding
a way of explaining that monotheism evolved.
originally came from an ape like ancestor
concept, psychology, psychology
They're all sharing this general concept
they evolve from the same source.
And we don't find a worshiping God.
As far as they can proceed, then they concluded that
man created God that God is a figment of man's imagination.
Some of them Freud, Durkheim and others, their proposed theories as to how the man arrived at
the worship or the creation of the concept of God
the idea coming out of the industrial complex,
where wearing, he creates a scenario saying that the early human be
white woman, children,
that the children, the male children
may love their mother, and were jealous of the Father.
And, in their jealousy,
they killed their father.
Now, the father was the provider went out,
the ones they killed that that no provided
one was looking out for them. So, they created the imaginary head
would provide and protect
psychiatry and psychology
to go No,
each school has its own explanation as to how
things evolved, but began.
So, the idea is is a social anthropologist when they analyze religion as a whole, if they evolved,
early man, when he saw around him the forces of nature, nice
forces of nature.
Here it is in theorems.
in his tribal circumstance,
the user the strongest,
the most powerful,
beat up everybody else, everybody has to submit to Him. So, when he does, then, before they all used to go out and hunt, because he is the strongest, he does that, he thinks of everybody else, they have to go out and hunt, when they run, they take some for their family, they must take some to him,
their offerings to him,
when his pleasure
is pleased with them.
So, this is the beginning of the idea of the offerings to the gods.
So in the same way as the rationalized
travel achieved, by offering giving offerings,
these powerful forces of nature.
gave images of being some kind of gods, they will try to appease them by making the sacrifice offered to the lightning garden.
And in the early days, and all the various, but there are many tribes and each tribe has its own version of these gods who the gods will have been applied.
And they would, you know, make images usually which were a human like images.
Now, as prions came in contact with other tribes,
certain tribes was overcome with defeat and beat up the other tribe. Kill them in slavery or women, take their children several things, or make them as fat hold on to them
What would happen
Is that this particular tribe that has beaten up these other tribes and defeated them and gain control over them,
their gods, there was give up and accept the gods of this conquering tribe.
Because these the gods in the tribe of the real God, that they help that everybody else is more powerful.
So, as time is progressing, now, the from tribes from individual families, tribes are being formed, and tribes are trading into nations as they conquer other tribes. In that process, the number of gods are decreasing,
till they reach the point of,
which is the example given
to people they decrease the number of dogs.
And then eventually, the last step from that was to go through
the process of evolution.
And then they take examples of people that are out in the world today and use them as examples of the different stages.
They take the North American Indian, and other tribal people. So, I name is called an Africa, South America, and up in different parts of the world, we have people, they worship, nature and the forces of nature.
Then, they go to the Indian Hindus show the Hindus, they have First of all, God, many, many, many, many family as an
example of passage, then they go down to this duel, this is the perfect
to have a lot of good and evil, like
fire symbolical design of life.
Judaism and Christianity as an example of arriving at monotheism,
of course, why this is nonsensical?
like the people tries to prove evolution, they have a theory already,
which they've now gone into circumstances and just put evidence to support their theory.
But actually, if one looks at the history, it's not like that.
There was a time in Egypt.
When Egyptians arrived at the worship of one God,
I forgotten the name of this particular Harold.
He is the one he and his period of time, it was about the worship of one God.
To him, they were the worship of Allah.
And if we look at the stage, from Judaism to Christianity, we don't see
polytheism to monotheism, what we see is monotheism or polytheism.
Jews believe in one God could be made in three
directions, as corruption.
So the Islamic view is that Adam believed in one God.
This was the same the need for Abraham, Moses, etc, etc, right down below.
And that's, it was people deviating from the teachings of the Prophet that produce these beliefs and others. Sometimes they degenerate into polytheism, animism where they worship nature. Sometimes it's generated to try theism, like that as a Christian,
or to dualism like that of the parties.
that these are just varying shades of degeneration have
deviated from the main
concept of God.
as presented by Islam in the final form,
we believe was not an evolved concept, but a constant concept held by Abraham and Mohammed,
abundance, and an all those in between. Now if we look at the major religions in the world today,
usually when people get to look at the major religions that have Gods
I mean, if the world population is
some 3.5 4 billion people, and the Jewish total population is someplace around
the point in looking at
the numbers of Hindus
is the number 100 million. So we're gonna look at world religions, look at
and look at Muslims.
So, as we look at Christianity,
as a concept, that everything
they have a dual principle which they call Aquaman. Batman
refers to the self or the soul, the self evolving
refers to the universal soul
is when the individual
individual human beings, animals, everything, this is a part of brightness.
So, in the end, what you're saying is that, everything is really
what they portray is that, right,
came in to be some came into being from his head, this is the Brahmin class, upper got
some from his arms and body, some from his legs and the top of his feet.
At the very bottom,
untouchables coming after them.
Size is divided up into cost, depending on which part of god
they're beneath, is that
human beings strive
reach a stage where he becomes one with God again, the end of the whole process is life is a life on a week. We love reincarnation, when he dies, he is reincarnated. He comes back into the life again, now the body
is your goal in this life, karma, good karma. Then when he is reborn, he moves up a notch.
These are the
four major costs but then they're
not buying us.
Good boy. Now, if you weren't good, then you may be reborn as a lizard
or a dog or
some other animal.
This is why loads are very strict to vegetarian is what it's about, because you may be eating your grandfather

We are a huge portion of Hindus are working. And although every day you read a newspaper, some indoors either a noose around the ceiling Finally, you know they find them in their life their life gets tough
easy for them to just come back
people you know working your way up the ladder
and in any race development class.
Then when you die at that point, you really are reabsorbed by ROM as well. So this is a call
And in Buddhism, it's called Nirvana.
At that point, you become
the universal gods.
So, their whole religion
requires men to realize that he in fact,
and all of the so called New Wave, religious stuff of the New Age, religion, new age,
people like Shirley MacLaine and others that are involved,
variety of different versions of the New Age, religion. All of this goes back to this idea of
realizing that you are reincarnation.
You get hypnotized go back to your previous life. My previous life I was resistant adapted and all these stories that they're really
all of this back to the idea of reincarnation, and that man, fundamentally.
at the same time, that they have this basic
concept of universal God, and his powers as a preserver,
destroyer, as the creator
attributes of God, they portray as different gods separate.
And this is where you get the so called Hindu Trinity.
Now among them one of the most popular of the gods
And Vishnu, they believe,
becomes incarnate at different points. In
the incarnation, they called avatar.
avatar means God met
From time to time, the different individual claims that their avatars rules which have certain states to claim.
they believe that there were 10 major appearances of Vishnu
you know, in
creative form, false creations.
They give them a variety of different names, appearances, and they're related to the forum.
Just to give you an idea of the kind of things that they're talking about, one of the first appearance of Vishnu is called matsya.
Vishnu appearing as a fish
the fish takes on all the characteristics and systems represented an efficient becomes an object of worship.
He also became manifest

and Krishna is represent human

a similar concept.
No, it doesn't promote the idea of God being everything.
In fact, they consider this to be pantheism and they reject.
They do promote the idea that the human soul is divine.
As the general health of the human soul is divine,
but in specific terms of God becoming men,
this is expressed
in the concept of Jesus
was a man
and express in the Gospels and john in particular, the beginning of which in which it says In the beginning was the word
and the Word was with God,
and the Word what
goes on, and the Word became flesh, and dwelt among men.
presentation of God becoming that now, the term which is used for words, in the
And if you go back to the Greek philosophy,
and look at their
concept of God, under the universal soul like being
reflected on itself and his thoughts became other beings and below that
plays the role of the intermediary between the universal God and man.
the problem is understanding how
could create from nothing
because human beings
in our world, when we create,
what we do is we actually manipulate
when we make tables,
we are manipulating the woods, we have cut down the tree and shape it in here, you know, we melt some rocks because iron McNeil screwed together. So we're manipulating nature we're making and creating things, from things that already existed.
So, they find themselves in a situation where they cannot conceive of how God would create
from nothing. So the easy way to understand is of God creating
as he took himself to make the creation. That's why he ended up in some of their classes, he's been inside of everything. And it was all philosophy actually, the ancient Greeks,
Plato in particular,
that human beings represented, portions of God, which we're trapped in matters, and that the purpose of life here was to realize that that portion, size matter was actually gone. And that we would do a series of exercises,
you know, spiritual, philosophical, logical exercise, we will do to liberate our spirits from
the material body. So, spirits can rejoin, with
its origin gods.

as well as the Greek philosophical channel,

grouped together under the general heading of Sufism.
What you find
in the various branches of Sufism
the efforts and the purpose of life for the Sufi is
his disappearance in God becoming one again with life.
And the various exercises that they described, various today. Each one has their own set of exercises that you do.
Some of them it's just repetition. Some of them involve moving your head certain ways I'm involved in reading their wishes.
Write a different form.
They believe that these different exercises will help you to liberate yourself from the material and allow your divine portion to become again, one with

They will point and say, Well, you know, a law says, when he created Adam,
Adam Spirit, the Spirit was inside of Adam was a part of a lot of spirits.
Of course, human beings came out to sign a piece of

Of course, this argument
is a false argument.
In my book,

That actually blew a portion of his own spirits into Adam.

You know, of course, this is not in that same context with the law refers to His mercy, talking about the law, but when he talks about his cattle, talks about his Earth, and His Prophet, then is referring to parts of his creation that
is the proper understanding of this verse. However, the plaster remains that from this concept,

Because through the truth, I'm eternal.

article saying what you know.
He said his lease was threatened by the Hellfire Yes, he did not recant.
Pharaohs drowned in the sea, and did nothing can we acknowledge nothing between himself and God. And I although I am killed and crucified, though my hands and feet are cut off. And
so what do you say?
You saying here that it leaves when a lot of soul agrees to bow to Adam.
He didn't recognize Adam as being God a god.
This is this is the act of telling.
This was no reiterating his belief in

And if you read in the books,
they will describe the miracles
when his head was cut off, it rolled on the ground.
So for now, this is just
confirmation of that.
You know, it's like,
in the time of Hollywood,
when, because some of the companions or some of the people who were claiming to be his followers,

Right, this was introduced by

And he was there enough to see what I hear in England here he was drinking milk up here too. So
it's just not a whole lot going on behind the
scenes like that. But if it is real, if there is reality,
understanding the jinn origin outbreaks, not a problem, to understand these kinds of phenomena, because the jinn can interfere in our world in this fashion. Among the Christians, you know, they have what is known as stigmata.
stigmata is that every year around this time,

Guess what? She wasn't famous.
The point is
whether it's movies
or from indoors,
or it's from Christianity, in the end, it relates back to the inability, their inability to conceive of God.
we don't have any problem
God created the world.
God commanded it to me.
This is our meeting.
there is a question
which usually is raised
raised by both Christian and Hindu fathers who believe that God became man,
the question is,
isn't that able to do often?
throw that out, you know, Jesus was the God.
And he says
that he wants to

this is their argument.
a mistaken understanding on our own part.
Because we shouldn't have answers to them. Yes.
We have to qualify that.
It's not just a blanket, yes, yes, I was able to do it
Because when a law describes the heritage of leaving that alive,
is not befitting that he has
the fifth God that he has.
So, what is what is referred to here is that
when we say alive, Able to do all things
we do not include in that statement, absurdity,
the absurdity, the things which are nonsensical.
things which are totally logical contradict, of
that same person was said,
in order to deal with this further test, you
do you believe that God,
you believe that God is
you believe that God

is no beginning or end This is part of the generally accepted definition of God's eternal,
eternally living without beginning or end.
So that's, that's a personal
just said that God what God is doing is now beginning.
What happens is that this is what the atheist philosophers used to do to mess up the minds of Christian theologians, they would come to them
to believe that God is Able to do all things.
But we know

the illusion that it's spinning.

Same kind of rationalization we bring to the

So, the is that all the things like them are the absurdity that are not included. When we say God is able to do

So, proposed or to suppose that God could become

What do you call that?
You're already putting it in there, too.
All of these concepts really, what it does, is it is making God's life, his creation,
making God like his creation.
This is the essence of you're trying to conceive of God. This is why the Christian way wants to argue with you about the Trinity wants to defend the Trinity said
there's the light of day.
But it's why

Related to that also is the concept of the intermediary

Same way, no,
it was sin.
All these sins everything, how can you then try to communicate with God? God,
you must go through a pure soul of Jesus,
or a saint,
say, what caused them to get into that,
trying to conceive of God in terms of his creation, either as human beings
or for forces of nature.
The concept of God becoming men.
And the crux of the matter in our discussions with non Muslims.
Of course, you dealing with atheists or whatever, then, this is only specifically for those who believe in God, whether they're Hindus, whether they're Christian, the crux of the matter is to tackle the issue of God becoming man, why do they have to be Why do you have to believe that God
and you believe as a man one time
to say became men
once you open that door,
so, we have to look at the issue, why do you have to believe in the first place and
then tackling that, to show them that it really in fact, is an absurdity and absurd concept, and it relates back to the their inability to grasp God creating from nothing.
That's the starting point. And that is the
God who creates from nothing.
That is that after the creation is unique to God,
only God creates
all of our creations are always manipulations of things existing.
That is unique.
That's what we have to recognize. He has a beginning that is unique, all of the things
he doesn't die as unique all the things that
that is unique as the forest the tree has the five pillars Yes.

question which is very relevant to
the people who claim that was worse?
What do we tell them?
To find the
with philosophical Hindus, the average indo European languages, because I believe,
like Abraham 500 people,
the Hindu guru will tell you this, we're not worshipping, actual image.
It's only for the focus of worship.

the carrying around in your milk over the top of this
major Banaras has come for years and worship.
What kind of focus
out of focus
you know, you're there you are, there's a
You know, this is only for an organization.
Our worship involves standing boundaries.
If we didn't have one unified direction in which we pray
to each other and
everything in order, we're all in the same direction and
it's for ordering direction. And to prove it to you.
Do they open the door and they're going
to go open up your idol go preset level.
And the backfire the Kaabah, you know, which is indicated by the semicircular wall.
Here they call the hidden smile,
is actually an extension of the collar, the original cover included all of that
time and they ended up with a few forms, it doesn't run out of money, and couldn't finish it. So they just put the wall there to indicate the remainder. So when you go, that's why when you're making a wall, you're not allowed to go between the cover and
the wall is an open door, if you wanted to walk through it, it would not be considered incorrect, you must go on the outside of it, because inside there is considered part of the people
and the actual cabinet itself.
So without people going.
So we say this is clever data set, this only represents a direction for fair organization of worship purposes. And it is not an object of worship. In fact,
one of the signs of the last day, Ethiopian was skinny legs and
we'll go to Mecca, and break down the GABA. What's going to happen as Nina was to stop the COVID broken down
two questions relating to the Jews, one is can you please explain the shift?
And then the other question which is similar in your books, the fundamental
difference also form of idolatry.
A small minority,
but just the issue of, of shifting their worship, it is in their representations of God's
God for them in their service.
Yeah, he is. He does what they want him to do. You know, they described him in the in the Old Testament as repenting for
Do you talk to do about repenting proposing to them?
asking their forgiveness? In the towel? Would he ask permission from the rabbi? Can we do this? Can I do that?
The God of Israel is the deadline and does whatever they wanted to do.
So this is where
they portray God, not only as a human being the Garden of Eden, I am hearing his footsteps.
Besides all these silly kind of portrayals of God, they do make their sermon by giving an action and so human beings weaker than themselves.
Now, the question is,
Is that enough? We know Islam fully, or we need to know the beliefs of other people in detail what helps you?
Well, the most important thing is to know is
because if we don't know that people believe,
what we're able to tell them, what the flowers and they will listen to us.
That's, that's good enough. Ultimately, we know Islam properly, we can explain without questions, and then this is the fundamental, most important because that will save them and it will say why
I would not advise anybody, you know, to specialize and you know, the that documents and all the different reading of all the different religions, and they neglect their own knowledge and
but having studied and you know, gotten a good solid foundation for a person involved in Dallas is important to know something of the beliefs of the people that you're dealing with. Because the dye, the propagator is like a doctor,

method to deal with your sickness. So the same way the diet functions like this, you know, whenever it is possible, you should find out what the people are thinking, what is on their mind, what is their, you know,
what are their problems? What is the issue, what has brought them to the point that they're, that they're in right now. And by understanding that, then you can give them the necessary or the suitable remedy to qualify for them. But
there's another question relating to the moment from

And also the fact that

Yeah, it's been it's been corrected, you know, there are

with this one, right. So they just kept on going.
