Channel: Kamal El-Mekki
I'm about to finish the Trinity. And then maybe maybe it's time to show us and then we'll close with some tips on follow. Now, and your question. So
now a number of things because, you know, obviously, even though we have two days together, we still have about three days, there's gonna be issues where you can say that guy ripped us off, because he didn't talk about this, this or this or that. So there's so there's one website, it's,
as far as I know, you could suggest any other one. It's basically if you want to find reputation, against perhaps write,
hobbies, or whatever it is, whatever it is, you go to a love.net.
So you go down, and you find reputation for Mormons, Jehovah's Witnesses, that just about
now, it's not very thorough, but you know, it's one, it's one of the good ones out there. It's better than nothing.
So, for dotnet, so now, there will be certain issues that I will not cover, you can try to find the net, there is some fine points on the slides that I skipped, you can also get them how to get ahead of them. And it's online, many websites have listened to their lead later parts.
Four or five, maybe, and get more info.
So let's, let's continue, we want to want to end want to discuss Trinity. So we're saying now, it's not just about these are the arguments to throw at the Trinitarian. Christian, it's, it's about trying to understand the mindset that they're in that allowed them to believe in something like Trinity. I mean, it doesn't make sense they don't really understand it, they don't understand is different from belief to believe. They believe in it, but they don't really understand that the pope doesn't understand. Or always say right now he's sitting in the Vatican, and he's saying nothing work again. Because he doesn't know, because it's a concept no one can explain. And sometimes
challenging will give me anything in this life. That's three, and it's still one. And so what do they do? They give you the egg analogy. And they tell you it's like an egg composed of three things. But it's one yolk, white shell, three things one egg. Now, who has not heard that before? The egg? Okay, to someone who has not heard it reviewed? How would you refute it until it's like an egg three things, but it's one egg. So the three godfather script, son, but it's still you haven't heard it before? You have.
Excellent, very good. Anyone else want to add to that? Yes.
Uh huh. Okay, so the brothers saying they have different.
Each one has a different quality. One is hard one is soft.
So the sister said, The minute you physically separate the components, it's not one thing anymore. You talk to me about a god physically that was on Earth, another one physically in the heavens, even if they're both physically in the heavens. They're separate, right? Because in the books of other after revelations, it tells you that God will say to Jesus, come and sit in my right hand, sit at my right hand. God in the center, commanding one to sit to the right, even then they're physically separate. So they can't be there's nothing on earth that's separate, but one and the whole one in essence thing. It just doesn't work. If anybody ever tells you look, they're one in essence, they're
both gods. So they want to put three bottles of water on the table. You can see there's one on one bottles because in essence, it's all plastic wrapper water inside. Like I said, just let him give you you know, you know, again, let him lend you some money compared to the dooney Let me $500 give him 100 And where's the
green paper? Got that guy on it?
It's not green. I keep thinking. What color is 100?
Brown There you go. Brown. Brown. Oh, who's on it?
There's no guy on
we have snow on.
Same thing What if they tell you the flame whatever they tell you break them apart and they're different at the same time. They have different
Quality. But what did they tell him? This actually with the five missionaries? He said, Listen, they tried the egg, we broke the egg apart. That didn't work. So one of them said, Look, it's like water. Water. One, but it can be solid, liquid gas, the spirit. So who has not heard that before?
Those who have not heard of you?
they all have different properties, they're not really co equal. Okay, what else? one molecule can only be in one state at one time. In working? I've been only one state each time. But actually, this is actually under extreme laboratory conditions. We can be, but they don't know. We can still use it.
thank you. So we have to show up from now. They're referred to it as triple.
Thank you very much. So what are you studying? I
got a major in physics, and a minor in the affairs of the room.
He said it's called triple point. It's an extreme laboratory conditions where water can be lifted solid, liquid and gas at the same time that it looks weird does that look.
So the there's one problem with it. The water comparison is what we told them. The water comparison is an example of one in three. It's not three in one, it's water in three different states. And that's what we told us and listened to understand what you're trying to do. But we're using an example of one and three to explain three and one. We agreed the training with three and one. So you can use one and three to explain it.
All right. So when they exhausted every method and every explanation in the end, she said, Look,
the truth is, it's just an issue of blind faith. And we just have to believe when she said blind faith the other day, like the cringed a little bit. And he said, Well, one of them tried to fix it. Look, it's not blind. And that's what we told you. Remember?
so low points, you made the submission. Look, it's like, Look, in our religion. We don't have issues that are blind faith, especially the most important issues and clear and understandable.
So then one of the guys said, Look, it's not really blind faith is just that and you famous excuse God is the author. I mean, he said God works in the Lord works in mysterious ways. Which is biblical, it says does not the author's own confusion. So what is this confusion coming from? I'll give you another example. What happened? And what do I do?
You know, the
where was I going with this before I interrupted.
I was going to reference another story.
Yes, there was a family, born Muslim their whole life, they were Muslim to children Muslim, the oldest daughter decided to become a Christian. And she became a Christian,
And they took her to one person to speak to her and he basically got into a fight with her. So she said, I'm not speaking to any Muslim anymore. Christian, and that's it. So there,
spent months trying to convince her talk to one more guy, one more guy. And she said, Yes. And they called me up. I mean, look at that pressure. Our daughter became Catholic. And she said, She's never going to talk to any Muslim again, except one last time. And you're that guy. Know, frustrated.
Like, I have some kind of miracle that I'm just gonna. So now To make matters worse, she, when the day was supposed to mean her two brothers go talk to her. She brings
the leader of the church, the priest, main guy, to sit there and debate sounds good to convince her or debate him. How does that work? So what happened? We made an agreement with our brothers, that they're gonna try to occupy the guy in the beginning, give me at least 10 minutes to ask him. So we went to like, in the same place the dining years over here, but still see us start to. So I started off by asking her this question. I said, on a scale of one to 10 how badly do you want to know the truth? 10 being really strongly in one, not so much. So on a scale of one to 10 How much do you want to know the truth now, I
I really didn't care what number she said. I didn't care at all.
What could explain
as possible? Yes, you're right. What else?
Yes, sir. See if she was convinced that she was on, separate, okay, that's all they cared about. I didn't care if she said one or three or seven or nine, it didn't matter what number she said. Because if she said any number, she's really telling me, I'm not upon the truth. If she said to, which is really low, but it's really saying, I still don't believe on upon the truth. That's all I cared about. I don't care what the number was. I just wanted to find out how long how far gone is she? So just like the brother said, she said,
I actually have the truth. So now I know what I'm dealing with. So anyways, we spoke a little bit, and then we went, we had to talk to that. And I had to talk to her in front of this guy. So I said, My only my only hope here is to get him to admit a number of times. That is the Islamic concept is better than the Christian in front of me. Hopefully, that will move over.
She's gonna marry his son.
Yeah, she was. I said that one time in the sisters not into that. That's, that's the issue right there. I said, Yeah. But he wasn't practicing. And he didn't ask her to become Christian. They said,
Oh, God. Anyway, the point is, we sat down with this guy, first question was, how does this thing work? And he didn't waste any time. He said, Look, nobody really knows how it works. I'm going to really understand how it works. Save me a lot of time. So now Look, why coming with me.
Okay, why would have revealed something that you can't understand and link it to your salvation? Does that sound fair, and Law Review something that humans can understand? And say, by the way, the only way to salvation is through believing this thing that doesn't make sense to you? It's really not fair. And it's like, some is an extreme example. But like, someone comes in this room, and he says, you know, he was gonna, you know, do this certain thing. Or, you know, let's just say, Rob everybody in the room, that's gonna rob everyone in the room, except those of you who can levitate in the air for over one minute.
Now, you linked me being saved from your robbery to something that I can't do as a human being? Is that fair?
It's not fair. And probably the only one won't get rocked in the room is me.
Because I actually don't have any money to run. But the point is, it's not fair to link it to something you can't do. So why would
reveal something and link it to your only way of salvation? So then you start to give you some gibberish about, you know, the mystery, no mystery. Look, you can accept mystery when it comes to your salvation. Yeah, I mean, if I was gonna show me that path agenda, people that path has to be clear. It can't be in a maze. It can't be. We talked about salvation. It's not a joke. It has the message of last week clear so that the severely intellectual person can get it. But also the very simple human being who's a sane mind can get as well. That's what they'll hate. Everybody can understand Toshi? Smart, not so smart. They can understand. Everyone understand tofi. So because
it's the message of salvation, that their issues, not everyone in the home, stamp, Sonic finance gets intricate. What if imagine, I'm going to go to journalists to understand Islamic finance.
See, it's not fair to the easy things you wrote to Jim.
So anyway, so actually, he said, and I said,
which one of these is easier makes more sense to you? That there was only one God, who does not have relatives or children is indivisible, or the Christian first?
I'm not saying Which one do you like more, which I do believe and I'm saying, which is easier to comprehend. The Islamic version of one God doesn't have children or relatives or neighbors or grandparents or anything, or the Christian of three Gods physically separated, get there, one, one of them dies for three days, instead of becoming two, there's still one, which is easier to comprehend. And he said in front of the goat, quote, the one that is more intellectually satisfying, is the Muslim version. And I've got to admit a number of points in front of her that the one in Islam is better, I am trapped in a number of times and forever, but you know what?
She was on his side. You know, it's what's our guy going to say to him? So my arguments didn't come through all the way like that you would expect. So I mean, a lot of time to ask more.
What happened in the end? I mean, I can't work miracles, and it's up to a lot. And as far as I knew, she was still upon that.
Guys, and Kim has guided me through everything allowed us to go astray and can go ahead and accept the lies.
She actually said this to what the first thing that spoke to her, she said, You know, I wish to read the Quran, then I started to read the Bible, then I started to pray to Allah to guide me. So the one of them, that's the truth. So she said, What is Allah guide me to the Bible that?
See that question? What are you gonna tell him?
How would you answer that? Yeah.
Okay, how do you know it was God? Why break down?
The system? Everyone. Just a UBI? Possibly.
Possibly, but you said afraid to die? Yeah.
just will have Yeah, very good. I mean, all these are good apps, if possible, answer that in how much they told her. He said to her,
he tells her a lot of punished. Because you were born into the truth new on a new is religion. The two journeys and suffering and reading to find the truth, he makes you born into a hedgehog born into it. And he's in the tube in front of your eyes, your whole life, and you started going elsewhere, looking for it. So there's a punishment. It was a bit hard, I knew they got into it. But anyways, so but the point of that was that the leader of the church, we were able to end the whole Trinity issue and get him to admit that historic system was better. Within a few minutes, we still been open this book and chapter, this chapter, that it's a can of worms, it doesn't end, you know,
doesn't have for those of you who are interested in getting to learn these things. I still recommend no matter how well versed you are that you don't get into.
It doesn't end, you know, so many times we've had discussions on Trinity, and it ended in a few sentences. But the minute you open that Bible, it doesn't end and it just keeps going on on. You give them this verse. Oh, yeah, but it's linked to the x, there is no link, but that's their excuse, then you give them a verse to refute that, well, this expansion, that's not how I understood this verb, it doesn't end, you know? So what are you going to do? You got nothing to think, ask a few questions and get them to think outside of the box, the mini the step out, is easier to talk to them, for them to see all the other flows
easier for them to see all the other ones. That's what we discussed when we asked these questions, and get them to think outside the box. You know, 1331, how many gods where there was no explicit mention of Trinity? Most important thing to try to give analogies we break them apart. So now we start to see By the way, and one of the scholars in the field of rhetorical rhetorical criticism, study communications here.
Okay, I don't know what you guys study.
he basically he studied conversion theory.
Or he forms he called conversion study, when people convert from anything to anything else, from Republican to democrat from this to that from Muslim, Christian to Muslim. And in his study of animals, what happens to people mentally he came up with the first step is it involves the breakdown in one's own belief system.
And so someone will start to doubt his belief in Christianity, and then he might accept more of what you tell him by the snap. If he's still rock solid here, it might take longer for him to get it to take a nicer look at stuff. So that's why we ask these questions to first get them to step outside of that box.
Believing it's a problem, you've probably all seen that guy who, who manages the rap temple, you know, India's got that temple, all these rats and feeds in and they just old girlfriends 1000s of rats. And you know, and now when you look at it outside of the box, you like what on earth is your outside of the box, but inside of the box is like, these are reincarnated brothers.
So, inside the box, it's different. Outside the Box, a different story. Get him to step outside of the box, you'll see the eight, you're not holding, you're just hanging around with a bunch of rats.
that's outside of the box is what it is. So, okay.
Let me give you some,
you know, I'm reluctant to spend the rest of my time on Trinity because the arguments are there.
Okay, is that too bad if we skip all the little arguments that are already available online? Is it too bad? Okay, great. So skipping that, I'm going to ask you one question here. If you heard of trans migration,
trans migration, basically, to someone who it's kind of like reincarnation, someone believes it can be, you know, if you accumulate don't accumulate enough good karma, in the next five years, it can become like a rat, or a snail or something like that. But then you can also become a human again, there's hope you can become a human. So give me some questions about that. Yes, sir.
There you go. You know, and there's actually you know, you know, when you work closely, sometimes with classmates, you got to give him some doubt, but this group project 20, and they gave everybody a booklet on snop. And, and then one of them said, Actually, I'm a Buddhist, that's my religion. So I asked him, Do you believe in trans migration and stuff? She said, yeah, it's okay. I'm not trying to be funny, but I need to know you can. Can you go from human to rat and back to human again? He said, Yeah, I said, Okay, now, I'm not trying to be funny. I need you to explain to me, what kind of activities does a rat do to get good karma and become a human? And it is the right wake up and say,
today, I won't steal any cheese.
What does this rat do could become a good breath.
So can become a human in the next book. The minute I asked her that question a minute ago, she said, that's my religion. The minute I asked her that question, she said, Well, is that really a religion? It's a philosophy.
Okay, so how about 5%?
Five percentage. So one time is 5%. Give me a ride to my car. He's telling me on the way.
It's just once explained what 5%
I love how you put it.
Yeah, they're, they're weird like that. They say like, there's 5% of the population that really knows what's going on. Yeah.
leg, leg, arm head.
I mean, they say Allah, it's human. What's a human two arms, two legs and a head? That is it a lot is actually arm leg, Link arm head.
Imagine you just feel differently than what you hope he goes out the window. It's just ridiculous. So anyway, the point is, is 5% is give me a ride to my car. And you know, so I'm giving you an example of when you hear something that you've never heard before. How do you refute an employee, you know that it's not true. It's got to have holes in it. If it has holes in it, you got to find the holes, that sickness all you do. All right, you know, you're upon the truth. Upon the truth, you're upon falsehood, and you have holes in your belief system or to do is dig examine, ask questions, and I'll find the host so this goes give me a right to McCartan saying look
you know, actually I'm God your God, we're all God. You have to worship anybody with God. I said, Okay, what makes you go He said, human beings who are defined because of their higher intelligence because they're both animals they understand they can communicate in intricate detail that's why we're going alright, so go ahead and refute that even though you never heard it before. Someone new
but one Go ahead. I was just gonna get the system yes system.
You heard with the sister said some people have like a mental return that strong or what? Any? What if you're born with some kind of mental defect? And you're not intelligent? What's the ruling in your religion for those people? Are they like capital? What do we do with them? They're not divine like us. Should we treat them bad in front of them? What's your ruling that and that's all I ask them in the guy. That was it. He was stumped. He never thought of that. What's the ruling
to fly okay.
Push up the cliff. Yeah.
Just pull your pockets inside out like
war god as as we've
never heard that one before.
Are you like that? It's great. He's saying
the do you become more God as human beings? advanced advanced scientists? Are they more of God? like are they more of Gods than the previous generations? Or if I'm smarter than you Am I more God than you and what does that mean? What's the ruling? What do I get? We get like you know when we get free french fries or what do I get for being more God than you? Who rewards me for that? Yes sir.
Oh, good. All these people are divine and Gods why there's so much injustice killing Gods robbing people. What's going on? With these gods? Yes, sir.
And what kind of God does it maybe means in that you define that God God? Yes, sir.
Okay, so we're saying we don't have the attributes of God? Yes, sir. Human beings can communicate very
easily. So why Why? Because it's what about intelligence, you know, intelligence outfit, you know, what about a chimp? That doesn't really smart. He got for a day or whatnot.
Why don't you convert me? telepathically? Yes.
Oh, man, I like that argument. that argument? Yes, that's good. When did you become when do you become God? Because you said it's because of your intelligence. So you become At what point exactly what level of intelligence do you get? Are you born God?
What kind of God and he does that in his diapers?
When one point you become God, no.
Okay, right. That's true. Very true. But then what about those? Okay, last?
and more as Gods kill each other. So you look at the attributes of human beings. They don't look doesn't fit right yet.
Sir, good question.
We're all dogs.
What's the purpose of life? Excellent.
Thank everybody. Let your hands get to you. We need to
what are the issues left?
And now what else?
What was that?
Yeah, remind me. Sorry. Remind me.
Oh, whoa, whoa. All right. But what if I do this too? surely won't get too upset. Islam qa.com for that question, Islam QA, you know what?
So Islam QA, some question and answer some QA calm. You go to the cert and you write.
And you write right hand possession. Right. And the website does a good job. Yeah.
Both actually take you there. Stan does to a common is time QA. Both of them will take? Yeah.
So that's where we're going to do that. And I'm going to have to tell you for some reason, something about that. I was going to tell you that you can go to
but let's do quickly. Let's do it the same stuff. We did the other ones Sunni versus Shia. What are the arguments? First of all, what's related to the problem come with Sunni Islam. When did she is not sure.
After a number of years when certain political incidents took place? What's one of the main arguments? And of course, to be fair, there are different kinds of Shia. Right. But the main argument used really is what
the main argument just say.
It should have been the first. That's the main argument. Look, one of them.
Don't we start with this?
He said one time the guy came to debate him about chef.
So the chef said, Look, I want you to tell me right now. What's the look how he ended this issue without opening the book. Okay. outside that box, he said what is the most important thing important message number one message in your religion.
He said that it should have been hi
He said is that mentioned anywhere in the Koran? You should
have some verses that kind of hint to it.
Maybe? Is that okay? Let me tell you the most important thing in my religion.
The most important thing in my religion is still hate. And it's on every single page.
You get it? How can this be the most important thing? And there's no record of it? No mention of it. Why not? You know, there's so many issues. And again, the work has been done. You look it up online, so many strong arguments against one claim, of course, is that all the Sahaba 100,000. Plus, they became non Muslim after the death process, except for four. And
they took the right of it from becoming the honeypot. So book became a funny thing. It should have been the one we should have been.
But we don't have. Okay, go ahead.
Okay, have you explained to nonsense?
I heard you putting us back on track. That was really our main point. Yeah.
Okay, so what if you just in a nutshell, tell him Look, follow the one that came first. Ever heard the one of the scholars debate God?
or religion? Yes. So who wants to tell it to us?
Yeah. What was that?
one time at the airport
where they wanted like to be with the, with the city scholars, so the cities only sound like one scholar. And what he did when he walked into the message into the into the shamanistic was that he, he took off his shoes, and he put his shoes under his armpit and he was
across the road. And so they asked him, you know,
why do you have your shoes on your armpits when, usually, on the shelf? He said, he said, Well, Mr. velocita? Well, I said, No one said that, that never trust a shaolin master because someone would steal your shoes. So once one of the Shia Sharif responded, there was she had during the, during the prophets time, he said, then wait to get your religion.
So when you talk to non Muslim
Indians called right to Piazza?
That's the name of
what I know. It's during the reign of Japanese origin near I think, is named.
JOHN, do you already know that for me? All right. So basically, anyway, the point is, what do you tell the non Western regarded chefs and you tell them, you follow the tsunami? That's the one that came first came as a result, as a reaction to some political events that took place. And it's not what was revealed?
I mean, it's really more political.
You know, if you ask him, you know, what's the requirement now? And they'll say, like,
they'll be attacked, and after that, but the basic thing is they are tested as long
as she is a Sunni, Shia, we are the
linguistically showered ones with support. Right. And we had a different meaning back then when they said, share some of those hardware share in the sense that they support it. I
support it, I need, but they weren't here today. So yeah, you will generally get them to understand that this is a like a political reaction to some political event. That true Islam is right here. And this is what started first taught, and yes, in all fairness, not all gr are extreme or that extreme. But obviously, some of them are beyond the snuff, and are outside of the stone. But what else we have this about
10 minutes. What was the last thing on the agenda? Yes. Who can who can come up here and give us a demo of the rundown when they give the talk. So just nice. It's not
So when did this come here?
So what we're gonna do I want someone to come up here, no pressure, but I want you to be smooth. Don't
just row let us know. Right there, just look at it and call it to Allah who's gonna go first?
Only the young people want to do
I need someone older for this.
I bet you guys can't do it.
Come on that will be our table people.
I see his best is like pushing.
Anybody. Come on, it's not that difficult. Okay, I was gonna
come, thank you.
Just bro. Like, like the person next to you Don't look at me look at them. And let them have that one.
Looking at me.
What's your name? Ma'am? My name is shadows. This means you.
Sweat your background and religion? ufone. Okay, you're Catholic. All right. I just want to tell you just a few things about Islam.
We now let me ask you a question first. What do you know about Allah? What's a lot? Okay, a lot is the God of the Muslims. Okay, let me make it easier a little bit for you. Just go just go with the explanation, we're assuming that you're going to ask the questions. But just for our purposes, go ahead with the explanation you already asked them was a lot. And just gonna say a lot isn't just given the whole rundown. So a lot is the one God he's without partners. Without any equivalent, he has no sons and wives. No partners, no intercessors he is the all knowing deal hearing. He is the most powerful. Whatever, if you put your hand if you imagine a picture of a lot, if you said Okay,
it looks like this. That's not it. If all of humanity got together and decided, Okay, God looks like this, and they do a picture of him. That would not be it.
There is nothing more powerful than a lot and he's the creator of everything. Everything you can see everything of the seen and the unseen, okay? It's the Arabic for the MC. And we as Muslims, we worship alone. And when we when we say we worship Allah alone, that means without partners, that means we don't.
We don't ask let's say a person,
share or share mega
a knowledgeable person. We don't ask that we don't worship them. We don't ask them for help.
We don't worship them. We don't ask them for help. We don't go we don't say go to a rock and Robin for blessings or anything like that. Now, what do you know about Muhammad is the Messenger of Islam, the prophet of Islam, Mohammed, some solo
just means somebody was so loved means
peace and the peace and blessings be upon him. He is the Messenger of Allah. That means he brought the message of Islam, the message of God the way Allah wants us to live our lives the way Allah wants us to worship Him. He brought he was given. He was given that by a lot to bring to us to bring to all of humanity, not just the dropping another know the guys had to leave. Give me a closing statement is leaving now. And that's all.
What are you leaving? Okay.
Just want to ask, are there any more questions you want me to answer quickly? Okay, no. All right. So one more question for you. Do you want to become Muslim?
Is there any other thing you want me to clarify?
Thank you very much.
You can actually put that clip on YouTube and say brother in Calgary speaking to Jim.
it was very brave of you. And I just wanted everyone to see how easy it is just really he was just talking to somebody It was really nice and easy is just explaining as any Muslim doesn't have to be a smooth speech with no stuttering and no stopping and no tripping is just you talking to another human being it's no big deal. Yeah. So thank you very much.
Anyone else? Just so people get get the flow of what is planned for them? I don't know. Can I give you the microphone? No, no. My argument basically given
to the person who asked me about their,
the higher percentage of the creeks and what the status of the priests
and they'll tell you that they can't
they can't bear children.
Children basically, they're,
therefore they're given a higher status or that
they can't marry the Catholic Catholic priests. This is an art What is this? Who gives this argument students come to you and they say I want like, say, like a
Catholic comes to you to get your dowel table. They want to ask for a slap. So basically, you know, you've asked them, you know, what their needs are Catholic. So in the Catholic Church, the priests they can't marry, therefore can't have children, but their religion, God has children's rights that are given higher status. Okay? Okay, so you're using this as what? Basically refutation of refutation. So basically, like, their God has children, but they're
excellent, I think, is a scholar.
Speaking of the Hama newari, who made the same argument that you did when he visited
the church, and he greeted everybody. And then he went to the big shot and said, you know, how are you? How are you children, and then everybody got upset, you know, His Holiness, he doesn't have children, just upon God, you know, he doesn't have children, and you claim that a lot of children. And so same argument you use.
The thing is this. So once a concept.
So getting back to double hair again, to us, it's just a real simple thing. You speak to these people. So this is a mean, some, some, some guidelines here. When you approach people during a W, you basically you know, you give them your name, you ask you greet them, ask how they're doing, you know, how are you doing, sir? Are you doing today? My name is so and so if your name is difficult, you can simplify. I always say my name is Kamala, it's like Jamal, with a K.
Like, come on, come on.
What happened, then? And then a little bit of explanation of what's going on today? What's going on this week? I also want to sell the rest of this week. Right? You know, with what's happening on campuses this week, we actually have Islamic Awareness Week. I don't know if you're aware of that. But perhaps you've seen the posters that we've had notified to say that he might pay attention now to the post to the bulletins as it passes by, might, you know, want to come to our lecture or something like that. So you're saying, you know, having stomach Awareness Week, you may have seen some of the posters. And we're actually basically out here, this is north courtyard, right. And
we're telling people we're sharing, you know, telling people about Islam and conversing and talking to fellow students. Let me ask you, do you know much about this now? He says, Yes. He says, No, I can go anywhere I want. It's relaxed. No script is just nice and relaxed. It's just a fellow student. Yeah. Everybody relax, just oppose to the you're talking to, it's not like,
I can make grammatical mistakes. It doesn't matter. You know, you can speak you can speak in Ebonics, if you want. We've been out here, we try to
abide by whatever you want. This is just you talking to a fellow student, it's Relax, relax, relax, and inshallah, what we'll do, those of you who come in, I'm assuming I will be there the whole time. Right? Right.
So basically, you know, feel free we can go we can be partners with me, I said, you'll learn anything and just walk around together just to at least you can you can see that. It's really relaxed. You know, we joke and we have jokes with inside our our thing, like I told you the other day when they say about violence, and it's not meant
to be violent. We wouldn't be talking right now. We laugh, you know, you talk to you could just,
you know, you have five minutes or you're on your way to class, you have five minutes, I'll tell you a little bit about Islam. You know, we're promoting
buzzwords and promoting peaceful coexistence. we're promoting mutual understanding, whatever it is that stuff. Just talk, talk, talk, chitchat, you know, so give a quick thing on you know, we're in America, I don't know how it is in Canada in America.
People don't like when you say what religion do you belong to? So that's why you always say and just kind of like showed us what's your background, so he might say my background is better.
But I'm not anymore. That's why when you save that ground, it makes it a little smoother, you know? So, so just to introduce yourself, tell them what this what's happening here to start with.
Awareness Awareness Week. And I've seen some of the posters around. And we're actually out here we're all sharing information about snom telling people got stuff to watch about a sponsor or man, and then they tell you yes or no. And then you explain to them, this is what I would like everyone to do from here until the next until it starts. Think of what what is your script? Okay, have a script ready in mind. You know, when you're driving to work or school, this practices, prep your script, make sure it has a little short arc, but a lot of again, a little about the process of setting up some of the pillars of Islam. And then say, you know, and then you might ask a question
or so everything that explains it makes sense. Anything that causes you friction, or make you uncomfortable now, well, you know, what, now? And what's the other issue? We forgot to get the name right, Joseph. So what Joseph, we actually now have the ingredients of becoming a Muslim Joseph. So we'd like you, Joseph to become Joseph, a Muslim, Joseph. And that's it, use that name. Ask them to become Muslim. They say yes. They say no, whatever that from the response you can see.
And that means I can encourage this guy.
Then, you know, okay, well, I still need to explain a bit more to discuss, you know, and what it says nom nom nom, I just don't have time. Okay. Well, thank you very much, at least, let me interrupt you and perhaps interested in reading this path. But if you have any questions, we're going to be here all week, every day from
from nine to three. And, you know, hope to see you around if you have questions. And if I'm not here, some of my friends will be here tomorrow, right in this place. And that's it. Do you see how it's so relaxing? So easy. It's really a fun and easy thing. Okay, it's no pressure. You don't have to get 100% on the you know.
So another demo or what? Are we good?
from someone else from someone else right.
they've never ever said that.
It will shut the camera off.
Let's just get well if you're gonna sit for five minutes for a poem. Let's do another demo in five minutes. But no one wants to go. Young man. Yeah. Yeah.
bad habit. When a young kid asked me I always say no, my grandmother.
One time I was giving this lecture that mustard was packed food and good stuff. And this little kids had me and I just forgot where it was no, my grandmother. Yeah.
But it went pretty well.
Talk to the guy right there. Your name greet them. So when you name a love, profit, if you want good? Or maybe I'll stop you there.
My name is and
what's your name?
What's your background? Okay, you're a Christian?
how much do you know?
If you want to stop at any time, feel free to pressure? How much
do you believe?
I believe in one God, and it's a lot. And the messenger is Mohammed.
We have bachelor's, and
we play five times a day in federal free play.
explain to them how someone can become or what you need to become.
Become more Muslim. You have to say it.
And you've got to like
you got to
which means basically, that you have to believe you have to believe in one God and messenger.
Thank you. Thank you very much.
Okay, very good. But so
but now, if you did learn anything, you learn that as much as you already know, you already know the pillars, you know, the shadow, you know, all of that. Did. I hope you realize now that even though you know this stuff, it's important for you to have the script mental. Alright, so can we all do this? Just real relaxed, nice and easy from now until the next week? Can we all put together mentally what we want to say? Because you know, there are they always have the same thing and they go over and it's smooth and fast, why Africans are brilliant, because they've been doing it. That's it smooth and fast. Okay, so I'll give you a quick demo. And then we'll end with that, right? So we
did all the grading This is a W and all that stuff. So basically, Rob, you're telling people about a month and by the way, a lot is just you've probably heard that name before correct. Um, but it's just the name of Allah in Arabic. It's not a different God or anything. That's why when you go to an Arab countries, you go to a church there, they actually say Allah and the Bible says a lot as well. You understand that point? Great. So basically, Allah is the one God and in Islam there is not divisible. It doesn't have children or relatives of grandparents or anything like that. And out of his parents and his mercy, he always sends prophets and messengers, to warn people to tell people
that there is a God teach people, the rules, the do's and don'ts of life, and to let people know that there's a there's a day of the resurrection. And because you said you were a Christian background, you understand this concept of reward and punishment, that people will be held accountable for their deeds, and so are the fairness of Allah azza wa jal, he always sent prophets and messengers to warn people, but sometimes they would kill his messenger, sometimes they would believe in him, but after he dies, the the alter or change his religion, so get out of the furnace of Allah, He keeps the truth here on earth, He sent another prophet and another and another. And
that's why you find biblically, the names of different prophets, Abraham, Law of Moses, Solomon, David, and this goes on and on. And that's why also, as in Islam, we believe that Jesus was one of the prophets of Allah, because if you look at it, he came with the same message, as all the prophets before him, the same 10 commandments, the worship God, do not worship anything alongside him or be besides him or with him. So that means that it's very possible that he could have been one of the prophets of Allah. I mean, with let me ask you this not you believe. But would you? Would you say that it's logically possible Jesus could have been one of the prophets of Allah? Sure, question
logically possible. allows you to get a yes, because it's logically possible, not saying that what you believe is logically possible? Yes, because he, he would always say, my father who has sent me he would worship God Himself, like all the prophets worship God, he would tell his disciples worship the Father who is in heaven. And again, he never once said, by the way, um, God worship me. He said, worship, the father was in heaven, he worshipped a lot as well. So it's logically possible Jesus could have been one of the prophets of Allah, and this is what we believe in Islam, then we believe that from that, a lot of them get sent a prophet after
600 years later, the Prophet Muhammad, Allah said, lesson Arabia, and he came again, with the same basic message, you know, there's still only one God that's worthy of worship, do not worship anything else besides him or with him. And the 10 commandments remain the same. Still honor your parents are good to your neighbor, you don't lie, don't steal, don't commit murder. And so is it also logically possible? I'm not asking you if you believe this is logically possible, that he could have been,
could have been the Prophet of Allah sent with a message similar to the message of all the prophets beforehand?
And of course, it's another question that gets you a yes. Only if they say no, ask again. If a loved one, could he have sent someone after Jesus? answers? Yes. So basically, this is the most important thing about Islam. And this is the, you know, in, in essence, Christianity, Judaism, Islam, they have a lot of things that are very similar, but we separate or different when it comes to these issues. And so, Jesus, for the Muslims was one of the prophets of Allah is one of the five greatest prophets, but still, he's a prophet and not the Son of God. And as you probably read in the Old Testament, any accusation of any god besides Allah was strongly strongly rebuked or
alone warned of it strongly in the Old Testament. So the point is up to and of course, I'm skipping all the parts, but I would get back and forth from them. I want to explain to you in the time left, because I know you need to leave the five most important issues in snap we've already discussed in this video known as the five pillars, then you are familiar with them or not. You know, the first one we already discussed it is that allows logistics
is the only God worthy of worship is no purpose whatsoever and that Muhammad is His servant and His Messenger. So now his right hand man, not his helper, just his servant and His Messenger. And then we go over the other pillars, it takes about 40 seconds to go over them. So on.
Any one of these causes you problems, any friction, so Well, I'll tell you what, Jason, you know, what, what we just discussed right now, and you said, you don't have any problem with what we discussed. everything made sense to you. You actually right now Jason have the ingredients of being a Muslim, you know? So, you know, by the way, are you you know, how you become a Muslim. This is in the case where I'm trying to get him to become Muslim. It might be where I'm just trying to get him to become acquainted with Islam.
Whatever the case for me, I'm just trying to get him to become Muslim. So yeah, I tell them look,
you know, do you Are you aware, do you know, have any idea how someone becomes a Muslim? Basically, to become Muslim, there's no 49 or 40 day journey or anything that you have to do that's difficult. All you have to do is just say, with your tongue, and believe in your heart, what you just said, you don't have a problem with we just agreed on these concepts. That's how you become a Muslim. So you actually now have the ingredients of a Muslim, you're actually ready to becomes. So what do you say you want to become right now? They say yes.
They say No, well, okay, that's fine. I mean, obviously, no pressure. We're only out here to tell people about the stuff. But I'm just curious. I wanted to ask you, what would stop you from becoming Muslim right now?
It says whatever it is, find a solution for it. Go for the gold gently. One more time. That doesn't work. Well. You know, Jason, you know, it's been nice talking to you. I'd like to thank you for your time. I like to give you a pamphlet. And we're going to be here all week. So if you have any questions, feel free to come by. Or if you just want to, you know, come hang around chit chat. That's awesome. You're also welcome to do that. Right. And that's it. You let him go take care. Does that sound very difficult? Okay, but it was a little smooth right? Now, because I just made it up. Because I've been repeating the same thing for years and years and years. So it's so simple. Just
practice it in your car. Have some kind of idea of what you practice out loud, by the way? Yeah. You're alone in your car.
You're crazy, except you.
practice a lot in my car. And
my kid, brother, small guy. I drove him to Taekwondo and I'm practicing. Every time he asked me, Why don't you speak yourself now? I'm practicing speech. Then one day, I'm driving him and he's
practicing his speech.
So practice your speech. And
what can I say it's been have been so great. For me. It's been so fun. I enjoyed it. But thank you all for your excellent manners, for your input. And for tolerance with all my jokes, sisters. I'm very, very sorry. I didn't always you know, see, when your hands were up. Sometimes you couldn't hear I apologize for that. I also apologize for all my crazy jokes, you know, but I was just trying to make things fun. So don't spend two days just dry materials. So I hope you all enjoyed it. I hope you all apply. review your notes before I
practice your your little any speech. And you know, practice it out loud and you might practice on your friend or your family members or your wife. And then when the day comes, introduce yourself, relax, take a deep breath, chitchat maybe for a minute or two about something else and then start talking about Islam. And just walk around having fun and making friends with people. It's that easy, and you have fun, and you get rewarded for it as well. Again, for attentive listening and for being excellent hosts and excellent crowd. There is you know the date, there is an announcement about some webinar that's tomorrow that I'm doing. It's about an hour long and the details of
it, but definitely fair again to follow up on upcoming lies of big major
