To our respected guests and seekers after truth,
we pray that
something that we relate to you this evening
will provide you with some evidence
and lead you towards guidance. And we say,
peace be upon those who follow the guidance.
Our discussion today
is upon the topic,
our beginning and our end
relative to true success in life.
I think that you would agree with me
that it's impossible for us to have success in life.
While we cannot define
and while we cannot imagine or anticipate
in our presentation
last night, we discussed
the same thing, true success in life
relative to the existence, understanding, connecting ourselves to the existence of Almighty God
and then acclimating ourselves, and being in compliance with his message.
Now, some of you possibly
and you've heard that,
and perhaps many of you will not,
you will get the benefit of the documentation of that lecture, so that you can connect the two together.
many of you are Muslims.
And therefore you already have the evidence
of the existence of a loss upon what Allah you have the existence and the you have the evidence of his message.
Also, as Muslims, you should understand and know,
what is our beginning, and inevitably, what is our end. So for the Muslims,
I want to remind you,
that it is our responsibility as Muslims, people having a connection with the message and the Scripture,
people who are involved and connected with the system, it's our responsibility to share
the treasure of that message.
It's our responsibility to invite
to that treasure.
It's our responsibility to instruct and explain the system.
But for the non Muslims that are here this evening, whether one or 100.
that you will open your minds
and that you will open your heart for a moment
and give the consideration to this proposition that we will make
all the phrases for Allah
who is the author
of all existence, and the most generous to his creation.
While he is also the all compelling
He is the only one worthy of our worship, having new partners, no associates, no sons, no daughters, no one who he must consult, and no one or anything which has any comparison with him.
All the praise is for Allah,
Who is the king of all who claim sovereignty, the only one who has the right to legislate for his preachers.
He is the giver of life, He is the cause of death, while death has no effect upon Him, because He is the EverLiving the self subsisting, the eternal and the only absolute.
All the praise is for Allah, who has power over all things. And there is in reality, no power, and no strength, no influence, to cause benefit or detriment except through him.
It is he who created this complex world, the seen and the unseen, the evidence and the speculative, the earth, and all that is on it, and everything that is in it.
It is He Allah subhanho wa Taala, the glorious and the mighty, the powerful, who created the heavens that are near and far,
the atmosphere and the hemisphere, the stratosphere, the outer space of stars, planets and galaxies. It is he who created all of this in detail and diversity in a systematic way that scientific laws can be deduced from it. Yet, so expensive and so profound, that science is unable to accurately measure or predict.
It is He
Allah subhana wa Taala, the glorious and the mighty and the powerful, who created and determined all at once.
With no pause between his word B
and it is
the heavens, the earth, the angels, the jinn, the men, the bees, the birds, the insects, the fish in the sea,
of every species and kind, all created simply by his command.
It is He Allah subhana wa Taala who created the life and mandated death in order to see which of his creatures among the human beings that He has given volition that He has given a choice to would be the best in that conduct and their worship
is he allow the glorious and the powerful, who sent into this world at different times and places, messengers, peace and blessings be upon them all, who were gifted with divine scriptures, the highest of morals, by which to guide and educate the human beings to a life which is legislated for them and fulfills their very purpose.
It is he who sent His messengers and prophets, Allah mussalam with the common message of strict monotheism,
which simply means that there's absolutely no one worthy of worship, no one worthy of our obedience except the Almighty, the one the absolute, and who has no partners.
that majestic, powerful creator, who gave the human beings intellect, culture, civilization, temporary power, passing pleasures and possessions. Yes, yet he has subjected all who are on this playing field that we call life with the mandate of death.
effect which humbles the arrogant,
the wealthy, the rebellious, the disbeliever the doubter, the ungrateful, the corrupt, the ignorant, the deviant, without exception.
It is this fact, that we need to ponder upon in order to reconcile truth from falsehood, right from Rome,
the True Vision from the apparent mirage of life.
Fortunately for those who understand the fleeting
value of this world,
the trauma and the swiftness of death, that comes without any announcement,
the promise and the assurity of the grave
and the resurrection.
This sorry out the ensuing judgment
and the determination for the final and permanent destinations of Paradise and the bottomless pit of hell.
Dear seekers after truth,
and dear brothers and sisters in faith,
we want to base our proposition upon the sacred scriptures
reveal to the Messenger of Allah, peace and blessings be upon him, that Sacred Scripture which is the only scripture in the world, which is still intact in its entirety, the majestic Quran
in the seventh surah of the Quran,
the 59th verse,
to what the Creator says this is his word.
Listen to what he says about the creation, the origin of the creation of the heavens and the earth.
In the name of a law, the Beneficent, the Merciful indeed,
your world is a law,
who created the heavens and the earth in six periods.
And then established Himself above
The Throne which is above the waters, and above what we call space,
he covers the night with the day,
calls in another night, to chase it rapidly.
And then he created the sun,
and the moon and the stars, and he subjected him by his command, unquestionably.
His is the creation
and he is the only creator. And his is the command, and no one shares that command.
Bus it is a law, Lord of the worlds.
And in the sixth chapter, the first to the third verse,
All praises are for Allah, who created the heavens in the earth,
and made the darkness and the light.
Then those who disbelieve, they equate others with him while they have no power themselves.
Then he decreed a term of life for them to exist.
And then he gave them a specified time
in which they will die and be destroyed.
And that is all known to him.
you are in doubt.
Then he says,
In another place in the Quran.
bear with me,
because it's important.
He says to us in the Quran,
and suddenly did we create mine from an extract of clay.
And then we place him as a sperm drop
in a firm lodging place called the womb.
When we made the sperm drop into a clinging clot of blood,
and then we made the clot into a lump called a fetus.
And then we made from it, the
bones and then we covered the bones with flesh.
And then we developed him into another creation that you call the complete human being.
So blessing is a law, the best of creators
will indeed after all of that,
so suddenly you shall die.
When indeed on that day of resurrection,
a day about which there is no doubt,
you will come forth and be judged.
And he says again to us in the Quran,
he breeds a living out of the dead,
and brings the dead out of the living,
and brings to life, the earth after its lifelessness and thus Will you be brought out from him.
And obvious signs is that he created you from dust,
the dust of the earth,
then suddenly, you will human beings,
multiplying and dispersed through the earth,
and office signs is that he created you, and created for you,
for yourselves, mates,
in order that you may find tranquility in them,
husbands and wives,
and he plays between you that is husbands and wives of affection and mercy.
Indeed, in that assigns for people who give thought
and obvious signs is the creation of the heavens and the earth, and the diversity of your languages and your colors. Indeed, in that are Signs for those who have knowledge.
Dear brothers and sisters, and seekers after truth.
Let us ponder for a moment
on these words from Allah subhanho wa Taala. And think for a moment about our beginning.
here and these verses,
and mind you,
these verses of the Quran,
among 6626 verses in its entirety, that was revealed to a man who was illiterate,
a man in the desert.
A man never sailed on the sea,
a man never into the laboratory, who never looked into a stethoscope, a man never looked into a microscope, a man who ever looked into the heavens, who had no idea, a man who could not himself have made these claims.
Claims so clear,
so profound, that science itself
has not contradicted.
What is the first thing
the first statement of the Creator
is that he created the heavens and earth by his word, be
nice, there was a big bang, that was the big bang.
And he mentioned that he created the heavens and earth in six periods. That means that by his command,
from the darkness,
from the mass of what we call outer space, where there was no life,
where there was no order.
where there were no human beings.
That creator brought the gases brought the masses, brought them together, caused the explosion.
And through that explosion,
our planetary system
came into be
with the sun
as its gravitational center.
That sun giving the heat, providing the gravity
and carrying the entire family with it in its own orbit within the Milky Way galaxy itself.
And the Milky Way galaxy itself, only being a cluster of stars among another nebula.
And that Nebula itself being among billions of clusters of Nebula
on our Earth, is the only planet
where this kind of life has been discovered.
We don't know that there are any other beings that are
Have the intelligence that can make choices that can compute that can manipulate, that can calculate. We don't know of any other beings and the whole heavens and earth except on the earth.
And Isn't it fantastic that the earth is different planet from the Sun,
had it been the second planet, it would be too hot for life, had it been the fourth planet, it would be too cold.
blessed to be the Creator, who knows and proportion who knows, and who has settled and determine the earth. And given it its ecosystems
in which our life has evolved out of it.
So he gave this earth, its ecosystems. So he gave this earth, a sky, acting as it were a canopy, to protect it, from stars and missiles from falling inside to kill it and destroy it.
And so he gave this earth, a carpet
with mountains and streams, and placed upon that Earth mountains to give it the balance it needs.
And he gave that Earth, all kinds of vegetation.
And he gave that Earth
the majority of its surface water so that it had life to generate other forms of life.
And inside those oceans, he placed countless forms of life that we have yet to discover.
And he placed inside those mountains
Diamond is all kinds of things from which we gain our benefit from.
And it plays inside the atmosphere itself.
What we need just to breathe and live
and from the birth of the earth.
He created the human beings after he created all the other forms of life.
This is the decree that has been made in the Quran that was revealed 14 124 years ago.
This is not Walt Disney.
This were Steven Spielberg.
This is the voice of the Creator of the heavens and earth, giving you an eye some details. And he revealed this to his servant, his illiterate servant, born in the desert 14 124 years ago.
And he says
that he created us from dust.
A substance from the earth
mixed with water.
In one place, he calls it mid forming sperm. In another place he calls it to rob it means just
another place he called it some Saleen it means a mixture of sounding clay.
All of these
themselves are descriptions of the origin of the human being and his nature.
versus what does he say? He says, first recreated you
made you into a clot of blood clinging to the womb. Now think about that.
When was it discovered from a scientific point of view from an academic point of view? Who was it discovered?
Who was that discovered that the sperm
was impregnated the egg
became a fetus. And then it became a clot of blood. And that kind of clung to the womb of the mother so that it could get the nutrition and become a host. So the mother would become a host, and she would begin to feed it without even her own volition. Lily says from that clot of blood, it began to Hyang. And now we know
from scientific filming scientific documentation that the sperm swims
millions of sperm and only one hits that egg. Egg settles in the womb. When it settles in the womb. it germinates when it germinates and breaks open, that becomes a clot of blood and then it clings to the womb then after that, it's still
from the womb, and that hanging pot is the biblical cord. The Quran said that
he says, from that hanging clot, then we make into it a fetus. Now we smell we know that nine weeks into pregnancy, the fetus is there.
The fetus, what is it? It's the brain.
It's the spinal cord.
It's the part of the human being that gives it all the senses and its identity.
Then we know at 21 weeks, it's a fully grown embryo
was the heart pumping
with the lungs, breathing, with the eyes fully formed, with the hands and the fingers and the toes, and the kidneys functioning,
fully formed at 21 weeks at 12 weeks, I'm sorry, 12 weeks, fully formed.
Vinny says, then we throw that fetus with skin,
scientific manuals and see what this process has been discovered, if it is not accurate.
And then he says, After that we close it, then after that, we bring it forward as a novel creature. So it comes forward as a child.
Because as a child, now it has its own personality. It is given its own spirit. It is given its own designation. It comes it is named a child a human with its own name and identity. This is what the Quran says 14 124 years ago, our beginning.
Then he says after some time,
you will die.
No, maybe not some of you.
Not the poorest of you, not the weakest of you. But all of you will come through this process and then you will die.
Now we know that
whether they create what they call a surrogate mother, or whether they take that and put it into a test to the process is still the same isn't it
cannot go outside of this process. Because the Creator is the creator and he has determined the system. Now that human beings can fool around a little bit, make a surrogate mother put a baby in a monkey, they can do all kinds of foolish things that they want to, but they will not change the process.
But what they may do is that the other thing that comes forward may be something other than what the Creator has intended.
So when they start cloning,
you will find out Oh, there's gonna be a lot of freak type people
who psychology whose genetic structure whose mentality whose physical structure, whose nutritional balance, who's meant to order is going to be dysfunctional. Why because No way man can create like to create a because man is a subject.
This whole beginning
you have to say Glory be to God, if he revealed to his servant
40,000,024 years ago these facts which science has not contradicted?
My dear brothers and sisters, that's our beginning.
Now I want you to listen for a moment,
we're going to continue this excursion
because perhaps this may be the first time that some of you have heard this or considered it.
So bear with me a moment.
Now, that's our beginning.
No need for us to talk about what we do. From childhood.
Until adulthood, we all know that.
We know the drama of life.
And that drama doesn't change whether we're from Africa, or from China,
from America or Australia.
Whether you're male or female, rich or poor, black or white, tall or short.
The scenario the drama, of human development. It doesn't change
So let's go from the beginning of the world, the beginning of the human. And let's go to the end.
can be characterized with a word that all of us like to avoid.
You know, whenever people use the word death, they use it like in a whisper.
You say he died.
We always use it like for somebody else.
And even when we see people dying of war being killed
even though we're entertained,
we like to think to ourselves because they're actors.
Well, they're not good at being killed. They're just actors.
So the scenario of death doesn't really come to us. It doesn't really reach home.
As the Quran says,
Keller solfatara Moon through McCullough solfatara Moon Kela Lau una de la Terra.
firma Terra Luna,
from Allah to Allah Yama
the Quran says
you are busy.
piling up, calculating,
developing your careers, your money, your occupation, your wealth.
you visit the graves.
Think about it. When was the last time that you
went to a funeral?
Was it your mother? Was it your father? Was it your grandfather? was it? Was it your cousin? Was it your friend? Was it your wife? Was it your husband?
Last time that you visited the grave? When you went to a funeral, and you saw that person who you love that was laughing, crying? Live? boasting, wealthy,
educated, deny arrogant, whatever they want.
What was the demeanor of the people when you walked in that funeral home? when that person was stretched out?
And their last suit?
What was the demeanor? What are people cracking jokes?
What a dancing.
What a clapping and singing songs. No. Silence.
Why? Because every person that walked in that room, seeing that person stressed out the first thing they thought about was not the person. The first thing they thought about was that one day, this will be me.
all of us, all of you are engaged in running your mouth.
Doing your business multiplying, buying houses, cars, business, whatever you're doing. And when you're told about God, religion, life, morality, you're saying we're gonna get no time for that. You have time for that? I don't wanna hear that.
Oh, believe in God. Matter of fact, I don't even know from a dime if I do. Maybe I'm coming back again.
No facts, science is so sophisticated that I promise I think really that they are on the verge of being able to solve the whole thing of death food.
We can get it done if we got enough money, we don't have to die.
See how arrogant people can be
they visit the funeral house.
And then after you go to the funeral house, if you got the guts if you got the if you're able to do so.
You go to the grave.
And now this is another scenario.
And you say to yourself, is that it
I mean 5060 years scraping, sparkling, steaming, lying, stealing,
jumping up and down, begun working. And this is the end of it.
I mean is this what's gonna happen to me?
Are they going to be dropping me into a hole in the ground
a hole in the ground the same hole that a cat digs after deprecates
just a little deeper.
But for the same reason the cat digs a hole because the cat has dignity.
Something that human beings don't seem to have
instinctively the cat
digs a little hole comes up.
Humans have got to be taught to do that.
But it's for the same reason. So you and I were going into a hole a little deeper than the one the cat though.
And all the people is crying.
Pulling up the half screaming almost acting like they falling in the thing with you. They want to just jump in there with you. Not really though, you know, solo solo
career nobody really gonna jump in there and stay in there. They will love you that much.
Then after all the shuffling yet all the shuffling get done. And they fill it up. And Nick the box you can see the box no more the coffin, the coffin that cost 5000 I don't know what the what it was they burned somebody the $5,000 coffin for
I mean, I was a funeral director after they left our digging back up and put them in a box and take that box back.
Honestly, I'm telling you, that's what they do.
Yeah. So after all the money and all the drama.
And they dig that hole and put you in them and cover you up.
And nobody goes back to the place. Go back to Mama's house or that his house or whoever's house in, you know, we put some chicken or whatever it is, and we do a little dance and drink some scotch and forget all about that person, then we start, we want the lawyer to come down talking about,
you know, divvied up the spoils.
So if that woman who died had a husband, somebody else gonna marry him, you know that.
And that man who got
you know, that woman in about six months or a year grieving or whatever it is, she'll come to understand that she needs somebody else. So she can marry somebody. So that means that his suits are still in the closet, and he can fit him who away.
So it really means that after all this time,
and the people walk away from that grave.
How about that person in the grave? What's happening?
Because you know, and I know that death is almost like sleeping.
Death is like sleeping, your body is gone. Your body is dead, your spirit is gone. But your consciousness is there.
Yes, brothers and sisters, you and I are going to know
when the people put us in that box and put us in the grave. We have to know
your spirit is gone. You can't shout, you can't call out. You can't say Don't leave me here.
But you're going to be hearing and you're going to be seen because that's a different kind of consciousness.
But you can't move.
And in that grave. This is when the real trauma is going to begin.
Because there's a reason for humans to go inside the grave. If the creator wanted to. He could cause us to live and then disappear into its atmosphere.
But he didn't.
He caused us to go into another room
called the tomb. You started out in a room of your mother and you wind up in the womb of the earth called the tomb from the womb to the to
this the whole trip
and this is what you have to think about.
is going to be
a place of drama and trauma,
a place where you're going to be questioned before you're resurrected.
And brothers and sisters, do you think
that human beings that have the ability
human beings have the ability to take a piece of Earth, dig it up, irrigated, put down seeds, plant corn, whatever the case might be, the corn comes up,
they harvest the corn, then after that, what happens? They cut it down, dig it up again, put new seeds in there, what happens after that?
comes back up again.
What happens in the winter,
all leaves fall off the trees and the earth goes dead. And what happens in the springtime, the water comes, generates the earth again germinates all over again, new grass, new leaves, new flowers, new fruits. So Allah says, and assigned for them is the dead earth after that we give it life.
And then you eat the fruits from that. So law says the one who gave you life in the beginning, is able to give you life all over again in order to judge you.
Yes, certainly, you may want to deny it, because you don't want to be judged.
But you will be judged.
And this is what we want to talk about now.
The brothers and sisters, the scenario of where
The reality of the reckoning will be explained in the actual order in which it will unfold with no exaggeration.
No undue drama from the speaker. And this tremendous event will have seven distinct stages.
And we will talk about the seven distinct stages of the drama of death
According to the scripture here, Allah subhanho wa Taala, the creator gives us a complete scenario.
that death is a fact nobody here can deny it.
If there's somebody here that's got a problem or philosophy
that they differ with me about death, that they they're not gonna die, they're not included in that, I want you to raise your hand. So you grew up here, give us this theory.
Okay, that means we all on the same page.
Now, this is a fact, going inside the grave is a fact. If you don't want to agree about what's gonna happen in the grave, let's move past it.
But the creator says that after the grave, so certainly we will resurrect you. And the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him.
He gave us a beautiful scenario.
He said that,
after the almighty
destroys this earth, as he, as he created it in the beginning, by his word, he will destroy it. Now we know that the human beings have been able to create a weapon which is called
a solar destructive weapon. It means that they have a weapon now that can emit a sound that can destroy a mountain.
We already know that they have been able to design a weapon that can create and harness a laser beam that can create holes to the mountains with a laser beam.
Now this is what humans have been able to do. The Creator he says
that on the Day of Judgment.
Before that judgment, he will destroy the entire world. Now the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him gives us a beautiful scenario. He says
it will happen in this order.
There will be the sound
of a champion
not too troubling.
Louie Armstrong, john Coltrane, not to travel a mile Davis.
another trumpet. Another Hole
by an angel
will assume that when it comes out,
the first blast
will destroy all living creatures at once.
The sound of that trumpet
will cause the human beings to fall into a swoon almost like they're drunk, but they won't be drunk.
They will be
mothers will abort
and the opening of the graves
and everyone that went into a grave from the day that they that this earth was created, from the first human beings to the last degrees will be opened up. And the human beings will come out of the grave as if they were mushrooms.
the law will say no on that day,
after he destroys the earth. After he removed the sky, he will didn't send clouds, new clouds and those clouds will have inside of them.
And when those clouds open up and drop that sperm, that sperm will hit the Earth. And each one of us the sperm from our father, the same sperm with the same DNA from our father will come from that cloud and hit the ground. And you and I will come out of that ground like mushrooms.
All the way back God says to the fingertips.
That means with the same fingerprints and the same DNA.
The only thing on that day
No one will be able to speak. Be beautiful.
No one, no one will cry, no one will complain. No one will lie. No one will exaggerate. No one will blame the other one because the one will speak.
The Prophet didn't say peace and blessings be upon them that the human beings will then be gathered
on a huge white plane stretched out
all the human being from the first to the last from Adam,
from the Prophet Adam, first man
all the way to the last.
And he said they will be on that day barefoot
No fancy clothes that day.
No fancy shoes, no fancy clothes, nothing to distinguish them and say what their class or their rank would be that day.
So his wife, Aisha radiallahu anha. She said O Messenger of Allah sallallahu wasallam route the people be embarrassed.
He said no, they will not be embarrassed.
They will be so full of trauma that day, that nobody will look to the left or the right.
They will all be only concerned about themselves.
And the judgment will begin and the scales will be set up
the same scales, scales like the scales that you see inside the supermarket when they weigh bananas and fruit.
Same kind of scales.
Only this day, it will not be bananas and fruit. It will be deeds.
Because that's all we have as human beings to offer that day. deeds.
That's the whole purpose of our life. To do deeds to perform, see what the tongue says. See what the private parts do. See what the hands do. See what the legs and the feet where they go to see what the mind see what the eyes see. See what the mind feels and thinks. See what the heart is
What kind of emotions it holds. And what's the final result on that day the deeds will be laid out.
And the people will be sorted out into groups.
And on that day everybody will be receiving their tickets and their visa to their final destination.
You know what a ticket in a visa is?
A ticket is gonna take you somewhere and the visa is the permission.
The brothers and sisters, seekers after truth.
If you doubt that this is
your end, in my end.
Let me remind you and remind myself that this life is very short.
The Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam said
that you human beings will be resurrected all together. Men, women, Jin shaytani Sheltie, bees and birds, birds and bees. He said, they will be naked, uncircumcised and barefoot.
They will be hungry and their stomachs burning. The sun will be over their heads about the distance of a mile. like can you imagine that?
I mean, right now, the sun is 93 million miles away from the earth and you know how hot it gets some places
Can you imagine the earth will about a mile from the sun.
They will have hot wind blowing in their faces, because the doors of hell will be opened up.
Now, if anybody is getting a little restless here,
and you think you need to move bags that they give you on the plane, or you need a you need some panadol or something to hold you down, let us know. Because I know most of us really think about this scenario. And I'm telling you again, this is not a movie.
I'm not trying to get no Oscar up here.
This is scripture,
giving you the chance to consider
this they will sweat until their sweat will produce rivers up to their knees, their waist, their shoulders, and some people up to their noses in their own sweat.
They will cry tears until the tears create a flood
but it will matter
and when they cannot cry anymore,
they will then cry blood
they will be shouting, screaming like animal
like animals being slaughtered.
But Allah will not listen to them.
Because this is the day when which was announced to them
they will have their fresh bone from the help file and it will smell like rotten cough.
And they will ask
they will see the profit atom will be there. And other profits will be there they will be asking those profits. Look, I knew about you can you help me out that this day
they will be stacked up like sticks. And they will have no place to stand on everybody will be trying to find someplace to stand.
They will be suffering that day so much that they will ask God, oh God, please relieve us of the suffering just throw us in hell,
not realizing that the fire of hell will be a million times hotter than the place that is standing.
This will only be the beginning of the day of judgment.
Dear brothers and sisters
if this is only the beginning of the judgment,
let me just summarize to tell you
what the end of the judgement
for those whose scales are right, and good deeds.
The resting place inevitably will be the helpfile
punishments that you cannot imagine.
And you may say to me what it sounds like a dream.
I don't believe that.
Because you don't believe that you're going to die. You can't even imagine that.
You can imagine the grave.
You can't imagine
While you in your mother's womb,
you can't imagine before that yet all those scenarios were realities for you to get here.
And all of those are realities for you to leave here.
And certainly, this issue of judgment is a matter of Scripture. every prophet of God told the people about this scenario.
And all I'm doing to you, for you, brothers and sisters is reminding you about this scenario.
All of us are going to die, all of us are going to the grave, all of us are going to be judged. And all of us will wind up in one or two destinations.
No one wants to be in a predicament.
No one wants to go to jail. Not even for a day, suddenly, no one wants to go to jail for life.
And even if you went to jail for life, what is it 20 years, 30 years, 40 years in the air conditioned prison watching cable TV, eating three meals a day of the taxpayer dollars, playing basketball, or rugby, or whatever they do in jail.
to the prison of hell, there will be no TV,
there won't be no three meals.
There won't be no air conditioning.
There will be the recompense of your deeds and your rejection of the Almighty.
Now, I'm not the one to say that if you don't believe in God, I'm not the one to say if you're not a Muslim, I'm not the one to say if you're a Christian, or a Jew, or Buddhist or Hindu or whatever, I'm not the one to say,
who's going to hell and who's not. Because I don't have any guarantee myself.
But I'm only a warner to say to you. So certainly, you're going to answer for what you did on this earth with the gifts that you were given.
Don't be caught by surprise. And don't be in a situation that you won, you were told. And on that day, you deny and you lie, and you say that you didn't know.
Because in case you didn't realize it, if you didn't know before you came here, you know, now
when you walk through that door, you didn't know that you were gonna walk out of here responsible that if you didn't know before you came now you know.
Now lie to yourself if you want to and dream about it.
And keep this in mind.
Each one of you only have a number of days or months or years before the reality of death comes to you. Some of us are sitting here right now.
a month from now we may not be here.
a year from now.
We will not be here. Certainly many of us 10 years from now, will not be here.
is to seem it in your minds. That true success in life has to do with understanding and making an evaluation of life itself.
Make the proper evaluation.
The Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us think about your life before your death.
Think about your youth before your old age.
Think about the gifts of your wealth before your poverty.
Think about the gift that you were given. Think about this life this opportunity. Think about your responsibility before you call to account.
to success in life is just like with the Boy Scouts said what's the sound of the Boy Scouts? Who knows what's the amazing what the Boy Scouts say was the two words they always say
Now the Boy Scouts didn't mean Be prepared to die.
But it also means being prepared. Now how many people here would like to be completely prepared or some people only like to be prepared to go to work tomorrow or on Monday.
Every one of us if we know what
We're headed would like to be prepared. Every one of us if we're taking a trip, gonna pack the bags and try to have everything in that bag that we need, isn't that true? It is the nature of human beings, that if they know where they're headed, they want to be prepared. That's the nature of what we're talking about it tonight.
Now, brothers and sisters, I want to summarize and wrap up my message to you by saying,
part of success in life is making the correct decisions.
And what helps us to make the right decisions is making the having the right information.
We're providing you with information from the Lord of the heavens and earth, from a Sacred Scripture, which they only speak two words is intact,
providing you an eye with the information that will allow us to be prepared. And by being prepared. We can reform our lives now.
We can rearrange things in our lives now. We can reconcile things with our conscience, and we can reconcile things with our Creator with our God, now.
We can pay the debts that we owe.
We can pay restitution that we owe,
we can begin to do some worship.
We can at least say Oh God, I thank you for life. Oh, God, I asked you for strength. Oh, God, I asked you for time. Oh, God, I asked you for mercy. Or God, I asked you for forgiveness, Oh, God, give me the opportunity. And I will reconstruct my life, I will reform myself in preparation
for a day about which there is no doubt.
There's nobody here
who went to college, without the expectancy of graduating and getting some kind of a degree or certificate is it.
There is nobody here that works on a job
without the expectancy of getting paid.
So everybody understands consequences. Everybody understands rewards and punishments.
So what we're talking about here
is preparing yourself for rewards, or punishments.
Prepare yourself for Recompense.
Now I'd like to ask a question, a simple question.
Nothing tricky about it.
How many people here
have really seriously thought
about the purpose of life? How many people thought about this seriously, the purpose of life? How many people
have thought about the purpose of life?
Even for a minute, sat down by yourself in your room?
walking on the road somewhere.
In a church,
in a bathtub, in your bed?
In the hospital? When you went to a funeral? How many people thought at one time in their life? What is the object? What is the purpose of life? How many people
and whether or not you found the answer to it or not? I want to ask another question.
How many people asked themselves or said to themselves? If I really knew the purpose of life,
and the most successful way to obtain that purpose? I would definitely follow that way. How many people said that to themselves?
That if I really knew the purpose of life, if I was convinced about it,
and what would make me successful to reach that purpose? Certainly I would follow it.
How many people have said that to themselves?
A great deal people.
Then I asked you the final question
How many people here
within themselves, that they understand the purpose of life,
and that they also are convinced about the tools of success towards that purpose. How many people here honestly can say that?
That's not a significant number.
It means that most of us one thing I say, you're honest, that's good, to be honest. But it's not good to be lost. And it's not good for you to be a mature human being on the way to death.
So I tell you,
every major trip,
every major journey starts with what?
What does he start with?
The first step I suggest for all of us
is that we acknowledge
that there is a benefactor
for this life,
for this creation, that there is a benefactor, there is a source behind it, there is a power there is intelligence, call it Almighty God, call it the Creator, call it the source of energy, call it the principle, call them whatever you will, but all of us need to initiate that step by saying, I acknowledge
that there is a power, there is a supreme power, there is a creator and as a benefactor for this heavens and earth, how many people would acknowledge that?
And if that
is the case,
then we can easily come to the next conclusion
that there is no one that is worthy of recognition. And there is no one worthy of our attention or our obedience. And there is no one who has any more authority. And there's no one that is worthy of worship except that benefactor.
How many people could take that second step
will be two steps
towards a conclusion, that will help all of us to understand our beginning and our end, and some steps that we could initiate towards success in life.
Now, if we accept the benefactor, if we accept the power, if we accept an intelligence, if we accept that there is most definitely a supreme principle behind this life, that has designed everything in it, including ourselves, then we must also accept that we human beings are subordinate.
And another way of saying subordinate that we are subjects.
Another way of saying that, is that we are obligated to some form of regulation and law.
Now is there anyone here as a human being who doesn't feel themselves subject or obligated to some form of legislation or law,
because if they're not, then I say get on top of this building and just jump off
and see if you can defy or deny the law of gravity.
Hold your breath
for about 10 minutes, and see if you can deny or defy
the human capacity and need for oxygen.
something even more simple than that.
If you have any power over yourself, any power over anything, stop blinking right now. Don't blink.
Just don't be
just don't think.
Stop the thinking processes. Stop the heart from beating stop the kidneys from functioning. Stop the lungs from going up and down the diaphragm. Just stop everything
It means we're all subject. Are we all on the same page?
So the third step, after acknowledging there's a benefactor, a supreme power, and the second step, but that's supreme power, definitely. They cannot be any one any other power, worthy of our attention, our subordination. And thirdly, that if there is a power, that is a law than you, and I should be willing, grateful, prepared to submit, and acclimate ourselves to it, how many people will take that third step and say, Yes, we should,
like good citizens, we should.
Those three statements is the same statement that we as Muslims say, when we say la ilaha illallah wa.
That's what you said. Now, we said in Arabic, a very concise statement, La Ilaha, Illa LA.
That's what those three steps mean.
There is no one other than
no other God, no other supreme power, no benefactor in the law, except the Creator, who is the one who has given all the power and we human beings are obligated to that power, to surrender and to worship and to obey and to acknowledge.
C'est la ilaha illAllah.
A simple statement. Evening children is born with another rather than trying to make the baby go to sleep. What is she saying to
a lullaby? almost sounds like
when people get happy in the church, what do they say? Hallelujah. Hallelujah. Almost sound like
how many non Muslims do we have here tonight? Just let me see your hands.
How many non Muslims do we have here?
Raise your hands. If I got some money for you. You hold that hand up.
Nobody's gonna take your hostage tonight.
Nobody's gonna hold you responsible for anything that you don't want to be responsible for. There's no trick to this.
I don't get paid for no scalps. I don't get paid for nobody that does no witnessing, and we don't have a pool in the back to dip nobody.
We mushrooms we say la ilaha illallah wa, because it's a concise formula. That basically
means those three steps that help us on the path
to success in life. Because by that statement,
we are witnessing ourselves. we're witnessing the world and we're witnessing the Creator. And we're also witnessing that we are subjects.
That's the most rational step. non Muslims
say was me.
There's one to be recognized, except the benefactor who has given us life see that
normally recognized, accepted benefactor that has given us life.
And that benefactor
has placed us in this earth with a law. Can you say that?
And I as a human being. I recognize and I submit to that law.
Because if it's only one voice
All the people that raise their hands, that voice is enough. Because if all of you was a team, we would only need a captain.
Now, many people think
that the aim of an Islamic lecture is to convert people, we don't do low converting here, we got converted.
That's not our aim, we will convert.
We're not Jehovah's Witnesses.
We're not trying to make people witness Jehovah and say this off, and we're not Pentecostals, we're not trying to save the world and save you and we don't try to make somebody reborn, that's not we're trying to do.
Our job is to deliver the message.
That message will fall upon
hearts, that Germany that benefit.
is to provide you with the information.
Our job is to invite you
to accept La Ilaha Illa law that is meant to be wish to accept the Creator. Our job is also to invite you that there's a human example, in the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, the one that received this revelation from God, yes, there is a human example. And I say to you,
all of you intelligent, educated people, in this computer age,
you have the capacity and you have the ability to go to a computer tomorrow. And punch in the name Muhammad MUHAMM ad, Muhammad, the first one, not Muhammad Ali, the boxer.
Muhammad, punch that name and he was the first Muhammad,
see who he was with his life, read his legacy. And then after that, I challenge you to find anywhere in history, a human being whose life behavior and legacy compares with Muhammad, peace and blessings.
I challenge you, that if you go to the computer tomorrow, and you download what information you can, if it's your father, your grandfather, Winston Churchill, your hero, anybody or yourself that you think has a legacy greater than his
call us up on the number that's gonna be on that bag that you get, and I promise you will raise 5000 pounds and give that to you tomorrow.
You will not find it,
you will embed a call.
Because the greatest, most profound biographers of this age, came together to do the same thing I'm challenging you to do.
And they came up with what they consider to be the 100 most profound human beings in history.
And out of those 100 most profound human beings in history, they made what they call a categorical criteria.
Now these are the most profound historians and biographers in the contemporary world. And out of these 100, human beings, personalities they extracted which included Jesus Christ, peace and blessings of God be upon him and his mother included.
What name do you think that they came up with?
I don't need I don't want you to guess I'll tell you straight forward.
The name is Muhammad.
Peace and blessings, Vietnam, the name is Mohammed.
And the principal person. Among those people that did that research was Michael J. Hart, one of the most profound contemporary biographers of this age, and they put it in Time Magazine.
What do you think Michael J. Hart said, he said that, based on the criteria, the categorical criteria that we set.
Personally, myself as a Christian, he said,
I would have preferred Jesus Christ because I'm a Christian. That's what he said.
He says in all fairness and objectivity,
there were several categories that Jesus Christ did not fulfill in our criteria. One, he was not a father.
Number two, he was not a husband.
Three, he was hailed as statesman.
Number four, he did not leave a legacy that became after him a world government.
But Muhammad peace, be upon them. He was a father, he was a husband, he was a statesman, he left the legacy of a world government. And the last thing is that he left a scripture for the whole world.
Those are the five criterias that they found concerning the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him.
And this is why we Muslims,
we have no hesitancy to say, you have murderer so law.
We have no hesitancy to say that.
Without love, our respect, and our reverence for Jesus Christ, john the baptist, Solomon, David, Abraham, Moses, all the prophets of Almighty God, when we say Muhammad Rasulullah, we're giving the respect to them, and bringing it all forward to Mohammed, salaam, sand and final prophet and messenger of Almighty God, and the most profound human being in the annals of history.
Muslim said Mohammed or civil war.
my proposition to you is that you should acknowledge this person, as you acknowledge yourself, as you acknowledge your father, your battery is now fully charged.
I didn't plan I didn't plan that.
Well, Muslims, I propose to you
that you acknowledge this person called Muhammad, the prophet and messenger of Almighty God, and the most profound human being in the annals of history.
You have to know this man.
You have to attach yourself to this man.
You cannot leave it just leave it open. If you didn't know anything about him before, you know now.
And you need to go home. And you got a book there. I think inside that package isn't it is something inside that package.
in that package, you've received this, Dale.
So minimally, we don't say to you, that you have to accept Mohammed, don't assume the law, we don't say you have to say so say that. You don't have to accept somebody that you don't know, you don't have to accept my word. You don't have to accept the word of 1.4 billion people all over the world.
black and white,
male and female, Chinese, African, German, French, Italian, Australian, European, American Canadian. You don't have to accept the 1.4 billion Muslims in the world.
You don't have to accept that one out of every five people in this world. They say, Muhammad Rasulullah peace and blessings be upon him.
But I think that you should and you owe it to yourself to go home, and read and check and verify this matter.
I want to thank you for listening.
I want to thank you for considering my proposition.
I want to thank you for the consideration of
What is true success in life. If you were here yesterday, I want to thank you for the consideration of the proposition that most certainly there is a God that exists, who is the Lord of the heavens in the earth. I want to thank you for the consideration that there is a message from Almighty God and that message is
in this scripture called the core and
I want to thank you for the consideration of the proposition about our beginning
of which I doubt any one of you have much refutation. I want to thank you also for your consideration and your patience and my discussion about the final scenario
More than all, I want to thank the non Muslims
for their participation and their acknowledgement that most certainly there is a benefactor. And that benefactor has to be the all powerful and that we as human beings, we have an obligation to acclimate ourselves, to acknowledge, to submit, and inevitably to worship the Creator.
In that our job has been completed.
The first question is, I'm a non Muslim and would like to revert to Islam, right here and right now.
But this is a sister, she says, but I want to know, when do I stand getting judged for not wearing the scarf. Sister, don't worry about the scarf. First worry about your heart,
We're going to come back to this this
this young lady in just a moment.
This from a young young child is six years old.
They want to know what Paradise is going to be like.
Let me just tell you this.
Our Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam told us that there will be no children in paradise.
But wait a minute.
And that's because
all the children whether they die, whether they're killed, whether they starve by disease
in Paradise, on the day of judgment, no children will be judged, because children in Islam are considered innocent. So in Paradise, the Prophet sallallahu Sallam told us that all the inhabitants of Paradise will be 33 years old, and they will never get any older.
So if this six year old child wants to know what power dice will be, like, we think that if God Almighty causes you to grow in faith, that you will be in Paradise, but in case you don't get to grow, if you don't get to become an older adult person, when you get the pod dies, you also will be 33 years old.
The Quran mentions
in the paradise, there'll be no sweat,
no bad smells, nobody has to take a bath. Nobody gets older. Nobody gets tired. There was no wounding. There is no bad words. Nobody has to work. There's no labor. Nobody has to pay for anything. Everybody has their own palace, a palace.
Everybody has their own palace.
A Palace in paradise might be five or 10 times the size of this place that we're here right now. Everybody will have one of those.
Everybody will have beautiful clothing. Everybody will sit on brocade couches with pearls and diamonds interested, everybody will have the food that they like to eat without having to cook it.
Fruits will grow inside your garden that you just call the fruit and it bins down and gives itself to you.
Everybody will be served. Nobody will have to cook or get up and clean and wash and do dishes. Everybody will be served.
everything in life that you ever imagined that you ever wanted. You will have it there, but on the highest level
and the best thing of all,
nobody in paradise will die.
Everybody will live forever. And the words will be peace.
And if you my homeboy and we all in paradise together, I'll come over to palace. We potty over there
because what else could paradise
But the best of whatever it is people want in this life that they can never have. That's what Paradise is.
Someone says Assalamualaikum waalaikumsalam.
I found out about his home about two months ago. And this is the first time that I ever thought about God and the purpose of life. A few days ago, I believed, but sometimes I set some doubts. What advice can you give me? Then you just like any one of us.
The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him said faith increases and decreases, it goes up and down. One day your faith is strong, another day, you got doubts, that's being human. All I can tell you is, hold on.
Hold on to that statement. In the law, hold on to that statement, Muhammad Rasulullah. Hold on to the prayer. Hold on.
that the Quran is the truth. And know that the prophets tradition is the truth and know that Hellfire is the truth and know that Paradise is the truth, and know that Islam is the truth and know that Almighty God is the truth. Just hold on.
Don't worry about the doubts. And also, could you tell me more about the beauty of being a Muslim? If you already Muslim, that's beautiful enough. Just hold on.
says I'm a new Muslim, and my mother is strong Catholic, she suffers from schizophrenia, schizophrenia. Is she accountable for not embracing Islam?
Well, I think schizophrenia mean two personalities. So maybe one personality won't be judge. But if the other one understand something about God and life, definitely they gonna be judged. So my suggestion for you, since I'm not an authority on that issue, and you know, your mother's condition better than I do. My suggestion is that you should be near your mother and kind to her. And try your best through your behavior, to convince her that there's nothing to worship except Almighty God, don't worry about it being a strong Catholic, that might be to her benefit.
Just you be kind to
Do for her What a daughter or son should do.
And to your kindness and through your behavior, and to your advice. Don't worry about schizophrenia, and the two personalities because I know a whole lot of people that got two personalities they Muslims to
and a little confused. I'm a little confused about Jesus prophetic. Korea was about two years, yet Mohammed peace of Korea was about 23 years in total. Why is there more Christians worldwide than Muslims? It has nothing to do with
the mission of Jesus Christ. The mission of Jesus Christ was ordered by Almighty God that wasn't ordered by Jesus Christ, and the mission of the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings upon him of 23 years that was also ordained by God not ordained by Mohammed. So a lot of us have that. And just for your understanding, there is approximately
1.3 million Christians in the world.
And there is approximately the same number of Muslims. Now, some Muslims might say there's more Muslims, and some Christians might say there's more Christians, that's not important. The fact is between Muslims and Christians, over half the population of the world is following Jesus Christ and half is following the Prophet Muhammad peace in less than one. And that means half the population in the world is acknowledging that there's nothing to be worse except Almighty God.
The issue? The issue really is that unfortunately, many of the people are associating partners with God because they have assigned to Jesus Christ divinity and some of the attributes of God why Jesus never said that. That's the issue. But that's another subject. And we can talk about that a little bit later.
Another question, does Islam acknowledge cultural practices? Islam has rules and regulations to govern our everyday human life. Does it recognize culture?
We know that
the Sharia talks about being made into tribes to inform one another. Well, the answer to this is that culture is
is the result of civilization of people, what they eat, what they drink, what they wear, their language, their practices, their values. This is culture. And every group of people have a distinct set of cultures. But they're all human beings. So they all that culture, the interwined. Now, what Islam says is that anything that is in a person's culture that does not conflict with the order of God, hold on to your culture, but there's nothing wrong with that.
But if there's something in your culture that conflicts with the order of Almighty God, what do you do with that?
You got to suppress that part of your culture. And you got to prefer the order of Almighty God. This is the beauty of Islam. And that's why if you go to China, and you visit Chinese Muslims, they got Chinese culture, but they're Chinese Muslims.
And you find American Muslims, you find Muslims in America, they're Muslims, but they also share in the American culture. And the same thing here in Australia. And the same thing in France. And the same thing in West Africa, East Africa, because culture is natural for human beings. But the guidance of Islam on top of the culture, not the culture on top of the guidance, that's the issue.
Somebody said in the list of influential people in history,
Muhammad Sallallahu, wasallam was first were the
child Charles Darwin rate.
Well, among the 100 people that these biographers came up with Charles Darwin wasn't even in that list.
certainly, certain intellectual, educated, materialistic dialectical people here would claim that Charles Darwin is do a place in history. He is.
But Charles Darwin himself before he died, was a bit confused about what he influenced the whole world about.
Here, we're talking about a categorical legacy, not a person that came up with a theory, not a person that came up with an invention, we're talking about a human being, that categorically had the most profound impact on the world, from a moral, spiritual, legislative, historical, social level. Charles Darwin is not among those people.
A question, wanting to convert or accept Islam, but don't know how my family will deal with it. Especially at Christmas and Easter time? Well, I say this system.
You know, if you announce to everybody that you just inherited
you might find a problem even in your family,
because everybody goes through a piece of that money.
So it might be best for you that before you announce it to everybody, get yourself a lawyer and get yourself an accountant.
And hold it to yourself. Keep that to yourself, even though it's good news. Now, if you accept the song, it has already happened in your heart.
It's already happened. When the truth enters your heart, it enters.
So it has already taken place. My suggestion for you is be Muslim,
the Muslim, hold it to yourself.
And when the right time comes your heart and your mind will tell you the right time comes.
And don't worry about Eastern Christmas. Don't worry about that. There are many, many Muslims here who were in the same situation as yourselves. And what did I do?
I didn't practice Christmas. But if I was with those people who want to give me a Christmas gift, I took it
out I say Merry Christmas, Happy New Year. I just said thanks a lot.
A non Muslim says, Why do you think it is not logical for someone to be held responsible for that? For the actions like Jesus died for the sins of the world?
Well, first of all, in all fairness,
if Jesus died for the sins of the whole world,
I mean, how many years ago was that, like 2000 2004 years ago?
So Jesus died for the sins of the world, if that is a principle. Now, Jesus didn't say that. But somebody else said it. But let's just say that that's the principle. Now Jesus died for the whole world. That means whatever sins anybody committed, says, Jesus died, and no more judgment for them not be right.
Now, the second thing is, how could it be that Jesus died for the whole world? And at the same token, every child is born with sin? I tell me how to
explain it to me.
Man, that would be that would be double jeopardy for Jesus and newborn child. That'd be double jeopardy.
That doesn't make sense. And that's not based on scripture. That's based upon another theory. And another set of principles that a group of people came up with, that we don't need to discuss right here, because our discussion is not about the Pauling doctrine, or the the Council of Nicea, or the Council of Ephesus, or any of those doctrines, that's not our discussion. The issue here is that that's not based on scripture of Jesus Christ. And it's not consistent with the scripture of any profits. So we don't accept that.
What does the Quran say about Mary?
Mary, the mother of Jesus Christ. Let me see just a minute.
What what the Quran says about Mary.
What it says about Mary
is the 19th chapter of the Quran.
And it has 98 verses. That's what the Quran says about marriage.
The Quran is so profound.
The proof that Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him, he didn't write, nor did he dictate the plan. Because if he did, certainly he would have made a chapter for himself. There should have been a chapter here called Muhammad.
There should have been a chapter in here with his mother's name, her mother, his mother's name was Amina, there should be a chapter in here for his mother. But there's no chapter in here
with the Prophet Salas names name, and there's no chapter in here with the name of Amina.
But there is a chapter here with the mother Jesus Christ.
It's the 19th chapter of the Quran. Anyone who wants a copy of the Quran here, we can make it available for them. There's no problem. And you can read those 98 verses for yourself. And I'll tell you that if you're a believer in Almighty God and a love of Jesus, when you read it, you're gonna cry.
What does the word could mean? Koran means the recital, the reading the word of Almighty God. That's what N means. It is a word sent down from Almighty God upon the heart of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon them in the form of a revelation.
That now is for us, a scripture of legislation, making all things clear and detailed for our life.
It's a recital and that's why when we decided when we read it, it is also a recital.
And let me just give you just a little bit just so you can hear it. Elder below him in a second obagi.
had a co
law is long.
this is the Quran. This is the recital
is a recital.
The Koran is a mess.
the Quran is the healing. The Quran is the word and the scripture from Almighty God revealed to His Messenger 14 124 years ago 6626 verses were chained and memorize the millions of Muslims in the world today.
Every human being, every human being needs to read the Quran and build a relationship, it will open up a door for you that you never saw before.
What does God say about the reason He created us?
He says, who
will hire Leah Balu aku.
Almighty Allah Who created you, who created the death and the life in order to see which one of us would be the best in our conduct?
This what he says, the reason for the creation of the human beings is to see which one of them would be the best and their conduct. So therefore he has given us the opportunity to strive as in a race towards what is good.
It says in one sentence, can you answer the question? What is the true success in life? The true success in life is to acknowledge the Creator.
The true success in life is to be in obedience and compliance to the Creator. The true success in life is to imitate and to follow the most profound conducting behavior and human example that has been set into this life. For all the human beings. The true success in life is to submit yourself in Islam.
The final question
that I have here is, does the Quran have miracles certainly does.
I could enumerate at least 1520 to you, but it's not necessary. I say to you that this book was revealed to an illiterate Prophet, that means an unlettered Prophet 14 124 years ago.
It has been it was memorized. Over a period of 23 years it was revealed.
And it was memorized by the prophet himself, peace and blessings be upon him. And it was memorized by several of his companions. And he reviewed their memorization of it, and the angel Gabriel that brought it to him reviewed his memorization of it. And so when the Prophet peace and blessing department passed away, there were several companions of his that had memorized this whole course. And under his review, and since that time, millions of Muslims have memorized the Quran in every age. And I almost guarantee you that there's probably at least two or three or four Muslims in this gathering here that have memorized this whole quote, and are the greatest portion of it. And another
miracle of this court, and that cannot be said for any other book is that if all the Bibles if all the town moods, if all the Hindu scriptures, all the Buddhist scriptures, if all those books were thrown in the ocean, if all those people those religions agree, throw them all in the ocean, and then we Muslims, we threw all the core ions in the ocean also. The Quran is the only one
that in a matter of a day or two would be brought right back because it has been memorized and covered.
No one else can say that. Because no one else really even agrees to the completion or what is completely the Bible or any other book.
So the Quran is its own miracle. Although there are miracles of the Quran and miracles of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings upon them. The real miracle of the Quran is the Quran itself.
Brothers and sisters and seekers after truth, our esteemed respected guests.
We appreciate so much your indulgence. That young lady that asked
to accept this loan, if you want to accept this loan right now. You can come forward
the excitement of our brothers and people actually they're happy. Because they're saying God is great.
It's not like a rugby match.
They just say, God is great. And we Muslims, we're willing whistling clap. That's not what we do. That's not from the Sunnah. But if we want to say God is great, that's an explanation that we're making, because of excitement, and because of being happy and good feeling.
These four young ladies, and the I thought the question was, for one, but martial law, this is the greatness of a lot. We'd like to also ask,
Is there any other non Muslim that would like to come forward or just raise their hands and make the acknowledgement along with these young ladies Is there anybody else.
just come down, or if there's anyone who themselves be as a bit shy.
If there's someone that's a bit shy, then we'll have a room.
And a session that we can talk to you at
a little bit later.
I have witnessed myself accepting Islam out of the out of the nearly 7000 people that I've seen personally accept Islam, I will say to you that 65, or 70%, were women.
And this is the indication itself, this is proof enough, that there's enough beauty in Islam, that with all the distortions that people seem to throw out about it, and the oppression of women is something like that. These women didn't buy that.
The beauty of Islam, the balance of Islam, the treasure of Islam seems quite evident. And so to make things very easy, this is not a ritual. This is just a means of making a public Proclamation. And then our blesses you ladies, for being courageous enough to come here and start the transit transition, and to enter the transaction because that's what it is you're making the transition. But you're also entering a transaction with the Creator, not with me, with the Creator. So I want you to say these words after me and the simple words. I'm going to translate. Afterwards make sure that you understand what you're saying okay.

the Prophet peace and blessings be upon him. He used to add something for people who entered Islam from Christianity to make something clear.
He used to ask them to acknowledge that I accept that Jesus Christ
is a prophet and messenger of Almighty God of spirit and a word from Mary who was pure.
So this is what he used to ask the Christians to say to make sure that they separate from themselves this issue of that Jesus is the Son or that he is divine. So I want you to say and I bear witness
Jesus Christ is a prophet and messenger of God.
And that he is a word and a spirit
given to Mary,
who was pure and chased
is sort of a new Muslim status kit.
Now there are brothers and sisters who also new Muslims and new Muslim helpers, who will answer any question that you have, who will give you the support that you need, who will provide you with any kind of help you work out any kind of problems that you have? That's, that's, that's exactly what they do.
We want to say to you that one of the benefits of becoming Muslim is that if there's something you Oh, God, something you did in your life, that only you know, and God knows today, it's forgiving, it's finished. You start with a clean slate with God.
If you owe somebody money,
you still got to pay that.
God can't forgive debts that you owe other people you see.
So we want you to be sincere. The whole thing about Islam is, don't think that you got to flip overnight, and tomorrow, you got to start following all the rules. It's not like that. You're not gonna change overnight.
But use your sincerity, be sincere towards God.
Start to learn, start to read, stop making the changes in your life, and use your own intelligence to determine whether your family, your colleagues, your neighbors, your friends, how you want to deal with that. But keep this in mind. 1000s of us met the same challenges and you'll come to the most Okay, may Allah bless all of you.
Thank you so much.
What I want to say to the what I want to say to the
as correct, I said that is not a chapter in the Quran, named Muhammad is a chapter named Mohammed, Mohammed did not name it himself. This is what I meant to say. Thank you very much brother.
And chapter number 47. I need to say that Mohammed did not mean the chapter himself. Thank you. But I want to say
for those sisters, who just became Muslim,
the people who brought them who advise them, who counseled them, who, who encourage them, you have a direct responsibility to the sisters, you can't just leave them out there to work things out for themselves.
You have to provide them with the support that they need.
Whatever kind of support it is, you're responsible for that.
If these young ladies, if they somehow are connected to young Muslim men,
young Muslim men, you got to make that relationship correct.
You have to make it correct.
These young ladies are connected to sisters, other Muslim sisters who advise them or encourage them, those Muslim sisters have to stay next to them and help them and help them work through whatever particulars in mind.
Those Muslim sisters should not act as guardians for them. They cannot be guardians for them.
They can encourage them and be close to them, be friends with them, but they should try to stabilize them under some kind of formal guardianship. So someone can work out those problems that they're going to run into. Because any any change that we make in our lives, any major change always involves some kind of challenge. We want to end our session here this evening with gratitude, for your patience for your tolerance. And those who disagree with whatever it is. If I said something good, it was from God. If I said something other than that, that was
If there's any non Muslims that would like to sit with me afterwards for a few moments, you come over this way, the brothers will direct you to a place where we can sit for a few minutes. I want to thank everybody upon the Columbia River 127 and 99. I want to start for the for our people.
