we praise Allah subhanho wa Taala we praise Almighty God
for this opportunity to discharge our responsibility
to convey a message
and to attempt
to inform and to educate
those whose hearts and minds are open
and we realize
that whosoever Allah subhana wa Taala Almighty God
wants guidance for them he opens their chest
and whomsoever His heart is restricted from preconditioning or prejudice
then such a heart is similar to that of a rock and water only passes over it.
We thank Allah subhanho wa Taala for the
the opportunity to speak on this auspicious occasion and upon this very critical topic.
Those of you who are non Muslims,
of course, you recognize immediately
that we have
titled The lecture
Jesus, the prophet of Allah.
And to clarify this issue.
This is not another God is not the God of the Arabs or God of the Muslims, and therefore we are not trying to usurp Jesus Christ for ourselves.
But the word Allah is a more proper
For the Creator, a name which he has chosen for himself
a name which he has chosen for himself.
In all the scriptures.
We found that Abraham and Moses, David and Solomon,
and Isaac and Ishmael,
and john the baptist, and Jesus Christ Himself and the Prophet Mohammed Salas them, they all use the nomenclature, Allah.
Because this title Allah meaning,
the only absolute creator of creation, Lord and Sustainer of the heavens in the earth, the creator of man, and the environment which man lives in.
The word Allah is an exclusive title. It cannot be used for any thing, whether tangible,
nor a thought.
And because of that, we want to use the word Allah as opposed to God, because the word God has been used in the English language interchangeable.
When we use the word God, we will use the word Almighty God because at least that modifies the word and qualifies the word God, so that we know that we are referring to Almighty Allah.
Now in our discussion
about Jesus Christ,
the son of Mary,
we want to first do our best to remove the distortions.
After all, we want to talk about
After all, we want to talk about
Jesus Christ, the son of Mary,
that man from Nazareth,
that rabbi, that teacher
who walked the streets, and ate food, and drink, and rested, and cried and sweat,
And like all other human beings, at times became frustrated.
We want to talk about Jesus Christ,
the son of Mary,
the one who received from Almighty God, a scripture that was called the evangel.
Or in English, we can translate the evangel, meaning the good news
or in Arabic, the Indian,
just just so that there is no confusion in our minds about whom we're speaking about.
We want to make a distinction between Almighty God who sent Jesus Christ who created Jesus Christ, who created the world,
to make a distinction between Almighty God and Jesus Christ, first Muslims, we don't need to make that distinction. It's clear for us.
But there may be someone here. in their minds, they may think that Jesus Christ and God,
Almighty God, the Creator of the heavens and earth are one and the same person.
So I want to give a description, a basic description
that correlates with the description of Almighty God as it comes in all the scriptures from the earliest of time, all the way to the end.
And then we will give a description and a discussion about Jesus Christ, the son of Mary, the servant of Almighty God.
In the Quran,
there is a very simple verse in the Quran.
A scripture sent to the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him.
A scripture that was sent 14 124 years ago.
A scripture that is intact, completely all 6626 verses
a scripture that was memorized in its entirety.
During the life of the Prophet home, it was sent to
who was prophesied by Jesus Christ and that prophet who confirmed Jesus Christ. So in that scripture, the only scripture that is in the earth today that is preserved in its entirety in its pure form. I want to read from that scripture, a description of the Almighty.
there is no deity,
the self subsisting sustainer,
the one upon whom all depends,
while he depends upon none,
neither drowsiness overtakes him, nor sleep.
To Him belongs whatever is in the heavens and on the earth.
Who is it that can intercede with him except by his permission,
he knows what is present in front of his servants.
And he knows what will be after them, and the infinite past.
And they cannot acquire,
not a single bit of knowledge,
except for what
he has allowed them to acquire.
extends above and beyond the heavens and earth and the waters
and the preservation of his throne and the heavens and earth causes him no weakness, or weariness.
And He is the Most High,
and he is the most Great.
Now, I think it should be clear that Jesus Christ, the son of Mary, the prophet, the messenger, the servant of God,
that He does not fit that description.
We want to talk this evening about
Jesus, the son of Mary,
and his phenomenal birth.
that very few human beings, whether Muslims or Christians have any argument about
we believe, and our Koran makes it clear for us and confirms for us that Jesus Christ in fact, he was born without the intervention of sperm.
that his mother, Mary, that bless it woman, she became pregnant by the word of God.
No man touched her.
Yes, she married later. And she had another son, whose name was James, but this was after Jesus.
We're not talking about James and the father of James, we're talking about Jesus Christ, who had no father
but whose mother
was married the daughter of Hannah,
who prayed for her.
the cousin of zecharia,
who prayed to Almighty God, and asked,
I wish to consecrate what is in my womb for your service.
Oh God, if you will give me a son.
I will give my son over to
the keepers of the temple, the
priests in the temple, like zecharia, the prophet of Allah.
And when she became pregnant, and she conceived of her child,
it was a girl.
And she said, Oh God, you have answered my prayer.
But I have given birth to a girl.
And the angel said to her, the angel Gabriel, that same angel that God sends to human beings.
So be it.
God has given you a daughter,
who will be one of the chiefs of the women in the hereafter.
And she will be given a son, who will be blessed in this world, and the next.
she was given two blessings. She was given the blessing of a daughter that would give birth to the Messiah. And she was made the grandmother of that Messiah that she prayed for.
In a like manner,
Mary was born.
And when Mary was just a girl,
Mary was placed under the custody of zecharia. That Prophet, who was in fact, her uncle,
who was one of the priests of the temple.
assigned a room for Mary,
a room similar to one of these rooms that might be off of this corridor, if this was the main prayer hall.
And only Zachary ahead the key.
And when he used to go and visit Mary to bring her food or to check on her,
he used to find that she had food.
Even if it was the winter time, he found she had food from the summer.
And in the summer, he found that she had food from the winter. And he said, Oh, Mary, from where do you get this sustenance, she said,
it comes from God.
So Zack Korea, he knew
this was a special girl.
And on one occasion, when Mary was inside her chamber, where she stayed,
an angel came to her in the form of a man.
And because she was a chaste woman,
that is a woman untouched, a virgin, not mixing with men, or having paramour was, when she saw this angel, this very handsome Angel looking as a man, she thought him to be a man. And she said to that Angel,
Do not come near me,
as any chaste woman would do, if she found a man in her chamber,
that Angel announced to her or Mary, I'm a messenger from God, sent to you to announce to you, that you will be the recipient of a word from God whose name will be Esau.
a column from a law, a word from a law and a rule given to you.
Listen to this word, well, well, who was Jesus Christ?
A word from God, not God, but a word from God.
A special spirit given to Mary under the command of God, whose name will be what
is our atmosphere?
Jesus, the anointed, or Jesus, the appointed or Jesus, the Christ.
And Mary said to that Angel,
how will I have a son
when no man has ever touched me, and I am not the kind of woman that walked in the streets.
That angel said to her, what he said to her mother, so be it.
When Almighty God wills a thing, he says unto it, as he said to Adam, as he said to Eve, as he said, to the world,
He says unto it be
and they become.
And at that moment when the angel said that Mary found in her stomach something moving,
as women find
in their stomachs, when they discover that they're pregnant, they have conceived
the difference in this case that Mary conceived without that Angel touching her,
she conceived by the order of the Almighty. And we believe that
because we believe that the Almighty has the power, to create, and to do whatever he wills in any way, shape, time condition that he wills.
And our belief concerning Jesus Christ
is that Jesus Christ is the likeness of Adam, the first man, the first Prophet,
our Father, Adam,
he had no mother. And he had no father though.
And Eve, his mate, his wife, she had no father, and she had no mother.
So what is more difficult for Almighty God, to create Jesus Christ with a mother, and no father,
or Adam and Eve, both of them, no mother and father, which one?
Obviously, both are easy for God.
When Mary conceived of Jesus Christ after some time,
God ordered her to go to a place in the east.
We don't know exactly where that place is, although in the Scriptures, it calls it Bethlehem, beta lamb.
Bethlehem, it means a place where the people used to go for meat,
where they maybe there was a lot of butcher shops there
with lamb or Bethlehem.
She went to a place in the east.
And she was grieving.
Like women start grieving, and that eight and a half, eight and three quarter
time period, from the pains
prior to her delivery.
And she sat down by a tree,
but following the orders of God to be where she was.
And the angel appeared to her again and said, Oh, Mary,
put your hands on this tree and shake it.
You will find fruit will fall down on you.
This tree was a date tree. And if anyone of you
go out in the street here and look at these palm trees,
you get an idea what a date tree looks like. But a date tree is a special palm tree.
Most of them when they give dates, they are this big around
a very powerful tree.
No fragile woman has the ability to put her hands on that kind of tree and shake it.
But Mary was a servant of God. She did with the angel auditor, she put her hands on it. And she pushed
and that tree shook. And the dates fell down in her lap and she ate from those dates given to her from God.
And a stream came from under that tree and she drank from that tree for God wanted to nourish her. And God wanted to nourish her son in her womb, the Messiah.
And when Mary had the baby,
she said, Oh god, what will I tell the people?
Because already people were saying to her, they were spreading stories about her that she's in holiday, that she's a prostitute
that she has fornicated
they were spreading those stories because she was already pregnant. Everyone knew that.
She didn't know how to answer. The angel told her marry. When you have the child. Don't say any word.
But point to the child. The child was speak to them himself. The first miracle of Jesus Christ.
He spoke to
The people from the cradle.
This phenomenal birth of Jesus Christ, fully accepted by us Muslims, fully documented by the Quran itself
should be of no surprise to the Christians or to anyone else, for God is able to do whatever he wants to do.
Jesus Christ is the Messiah,
a word from Almighty God, and what does the word Messiah mean and mercy. It means one who is touched by God.
One who is anointed by God, and one who is appointed by God and mercy.
This is qualified and confirmed, both in the scriptures as well as in the Quran.
Jesus Christ was a messenger, and a prophet of Almighty God, what is a messenger? A messenger is someone who is appointed or ordered by Almighty God and selected by him to deliver a message.
The name of his message was the evangel. The Gospel
the good news,
not a comprehensive system, but an indication and announcement, a good news.
He was a prophet, and a messenger to the children of Israel,
not a prophet, and a messenger to the whole world. He never said in his words, I came to the whole world.
No, he said,
to His disciples go not unto the Samaritans,
or to the Sabbath tins.
For I have not been sent to the Gentiles, the Romans, the sabbatarians, with another tins,
or the Samaritans, I have been sent to the lost sheep of the tribe of Israel. He made it clear that's who he came for. Why did he come to them? He came to them because they had drifted and deviated and corrupted the teachings that had come before Jesus Christ, to the extent that they plotted and killed Jesus Christ cousin.
You know, his cousin,
the son of zecharia.
His name was john. We know him as Yeah, yeah.
But his name was john, john and Jesus, were the same age.
Not the same age that means born the same day. But john and Jesus, both by the command of God was lifted out of this world taken out of this world, john slaughtered, beheaded. Jesus Christ lifted at the age of 33.
JOHN and Jesus were cousins.
You know, the story of john, don't you?
john was the son of zecharia. Who was the custodian of Mary,
the cousin of Mary's mother, Hannah, the priest of the temple.
And that priest on one occasion, he did what Hannah did. He supplicated to God because he wanted to son, but he was old man.
Zachary was 110 years old. Can you imagine a man 110 years old praying to God for a son?
rationally? He's a little bit late in his supplication.
Now, Zachary was 110.
And his wife was 90.
What do you think she thought?
But Zachary was a prophet.
And the supplications of profits are answered.
Because they are the people most loved by God, because they were appointed by God because they are servants of God. And whoever serves God and loves God is almost like his son, although God doesn't really have sons in that sense, but they are
selected, and God loves them like that. So when they supplicate God gives to them as you and I would give to our sons and daughters.
So Zachary asked God, for my son.
And that same angel came to Zachary and said, Oh zecharia, Allah has answered your prayer, you will have a son,
Zachary, he thought that he said,
How will I have a son
when I can no longer emit sperm. This is what the word means. I'm a man whose source of water and strength in his back has dried up. This means he has not the ability to emit sperm.
And he said, and my wife,
she has not the ability
to create to produce a fertilized egg. This is what it means.
She's a woman who is barren. Of course, she should be by 90.
The angel said to him
what that angel said to Hannah, and what that angel said to Mary, the angel said to zecharia sobia. When Almighty God decrees the thing that is simple for God, he says, Be and it is.
And when Zachary went to his wife, and told her that she would be pregnant with a son she left
as you left.
But just as she left, she felt the child in her stomach.
And this is the miracle of the birth of john
lewis like the miracle of Jesus Christ, Jesus was born of a mother,
who had no husband and had not been
impregnated with sperm.
john the baptist, as he was called.
He was born of a father 110 and a woman and a mother that was barren.
They were cousins,
both of their lives, signs of Almighty God.
john was the precursor to Jesus Christ. He was preaching, he was teaching, he was leading. He was doing what his father asked him to do. After his father died. john was preaching, leading, guiding the people that who conspired against him, the elders from the Bani Israel
until they plotted on him and had him beheaded and killed, but before that happened, john received that Jesus Christ and He was the one that baptized Jesus Christ, His cousin.
Now, most of you should have learned these stories, in Sunday school,
or Monday school.
You should have learned these stories, either at home or in church or reading the Bible yourselves, because it's there.
It's there in very plain language.
These are certain stories that they couldn't play with, it's there.
You may read it as a myth if you don't believe in God. But if you believe in God, if you created this world with all of his diversity, you read it as scripture.
We Muslims, have it confirmed for us in the Quran.
Jesus was called
that man from Nazareth.
Why? Because he began walking, talking, healing the people preaching from Nazareth, all the way to Jerusalem, and all the cities in between. So they called him the Romans used to call him Who is that man preaching and talking, healing the lepers Who is he? They call him Jesus. Some call them the rabbi. Some call him the teacher. He's that man from Nazareth,
that man that was born in
Those people that walked with Jesus Christ.
Those people that set with Jesus Christ, listened to him,
received his hands as he laid it on them.
Witnesses miracles, from one town to another from day to day, those people will called nazarenes. They weren't called Christians.
They were called nazarenes.
And those that stayed with him whom he trusted, who served him, they will call
Those were his disciples, the ones whom he trusted the most. Those who he called by name. Those who served him those that imitated him, those that learned directly from him. We now know that there was at least 12 or 13 of them in number.
Jesus was that great rabbi who performed miracles by the power given to him by the Almighty.
he did heal the lepers.
He did cause
their wounds to heal instantly. He did cause the blind to see he removed cataracts from their eyes. without surgery.
He touched their eyes and they were able to see
he touched their bodies, and they were healed.
He just isn't able to hear.
He called Lazarus out of the grave because he was challenged.
If you are that great prophet, if you are who you say you are,
bring the dead back to life. He said, that's what you want to see.
So he supplicated to God. And then he went to the grave and he said, Lazarus, and the name of God, in the name of Allah come out of there.
rise up out of the grave. And right in front of the people, what do you think happened?
He came up out of the grave,
and walked after he was dead, and everybody witnessed he was dead. So he healed the people. He caused them to see, he caused them to hear he raised the dead. He took a clay bird, a pigeon made of clay. And he blew into it and flew in front of the people.
10,000 people from seven loaves of bread and seven fish. How do you do that? That's that's that's economizing.
Did he say he did it by his power?
No, he said, when they asked him,
I can have my own self do nothing.
Would that be Almighty God, in the form of a man doing his own miracles. And then when he's asked, say, I can have my own self do nothing.
And I am not greater than the one who sent me.
This is Jesus Christ, that great rabbi, and teacher who performed those miracles by the power of whom?
By the power of Almighty God.
Jesus was that one that was accused,
plotted against and convicted by the high priests. What did they accuse him of? They plot it on him because they knew
there was two things they could say. He called himself the Son of God. And according to that, their beliefs. According to their scripture, anyone that calls themselves the Son of God was what a pagan.
No Jewish person today would call themselves the Son of God. And Jesus Christ was from what tribe, the tribe of Judah.
But Jesus Christ, if you use that terminology, he used it in the scriptural sense. Just like God said that Isaiah is my son. And God said that David is my son. And God said that Abraham is my son.
But God didn't mean that that was Those were his sons, from a wife that he laid down with.
God didn't mean that those are his sons that he begat.
God didn't mean those were some special exclusive sons, but it meant and the Aramaic language, a person chosen by God, a person that is loved by God, a person that is selected by God, a person that is protected by God, and so God loves that person. And Jesus Christ was
One of those person, and he spoke that way. For instance,
I was born a Christian.
And as a matter of fact, I compete with all Christians and my love and attachment to Jesus Christ and His message. I believe I know more about Jesus Christ and his life and his mother and his grandfather and his legacy than most Christians. As a matter of fact, most Christians really should call themselves Christian apologists.
Because it's the study.
It is what people say about Jesus Christ, not who Jesus Christ was, or how he actually lived.
for himself, never told anyone to call themselves Christians.
But I was born a Christian, we can say that that nomenclature was put upon me.
And as a Christian,
I asked about this issue of Jesus Christ being the son of God.
I wanted to understand that I wanted to understand how could Jesus be God's Son, and also be God, and also be a divine person among three persons, that part of the One God now See if you can mathematically figure that out?
The Trinity, says, God, in three persons, whether you follow the Nicene Creed of the athanasian creed of the apostles creed,
they all say God in three persons, person, person, person, and how do you get 1231?
How do you get one God at a person, Person person?
And they make it clear that each one is a person and a divine personality, yet they all are one God.
A mystery that has never been solved in 2000 years.
No Christian, no minister.
No card. No, no priest, not even the pope or any of the Church Fathers can tell you today.
How that is.
So they've all decided to use a word to sum it all up. It's a mystery, my son?
Well, that's a mystery. I think that 100 Sherlock Holmes will never be able to figure out.
I think you need a little bit more than forensic science
to figure that mystery out.
But Jesus Christ Himself,
He answered what he meant by son.
Because you and I both know that when Jesus Christ was asked a rabbi, teach us how to pray.
Jesus Christ gave the Christians or his disciples, the nazarenes, he gave them a prayer that all of you know to be the Lord's Prayer. How many people are Christians here? Don't be shy. Let me see.
Good. There's enough.
Let's walk through let's walk through let's talk through the Lord's Prayer. I mean, it's a good prayer.
I will teach you how to pray. He said, Our Father, who art in heaven, He didn't say my father.
He'll say my father.
If he was the exclusive son of Almighty God, then he would have said, My Father who art in heaven. What did he say Christians?
Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, not my name.
Not our name.
But that name, he's speaking in the second person, the second person exclusive.
Thy kingdom come whose kingdom come, my kingdom come, if Jesus is God, and he's part of the Godhead, he's one of the three that he owns part of that too. He should say, our kingdom come.
Thy will be done.
I'm not being facetious here.
I'm calling a prayer. A prayer that I also feel passionately about.
The kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. Who's eating bread?
Us. I mean, Jesus Christ and His mother's both eating bread, isn't it?
And if you if you eat bread, you're gonna drink some water or some juice or something.
And if you drink and eat bread and frickin juice, the body only uses part of it. The rest of it the body, cast out.
Now, can you imagine Almighty God eating bread and drinking juice defecating and urinating?
Now use your mind Christians.
We're not talking mathematics here. We're not talking high science here. We're not embarrassing anybody here. We're not casting aspersions on anybody here. We're not criticizing or condemning anybody here we're making sense.
Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us who's trespassing.
this day our daily bread. And forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us. Lead us not into Lead us not into temptation, God being tempted
but deliver us from evil god asking himself to be delivered.
For thine is the kingdom
the power and the glory forever and ever. Amen. Is that the Lord's Prayer?
Is that the Lord's Prayer?
Jesus made the Lord's Prayer. And he taught the disciples the Lord's Prayer. So that lord's prayer he made was for him and everyone else.
That lord's prayer that I just read sounds something like what I read from the Quran initially.
It almost sounds something like the Fatiha that we recite 27 times a day. And hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen All praises to Almighty God, Lord of the worlds
a rough man Rahim. The compassionate and merciful, Maliki yo Medina, Master of the Day of Judgment. He yakin Abu was a yak and assigned to you do we worship dying aid? Do we seek his dinner sir, also, Mr. Kane, guide us on the straight path. Serato levena. And I'm Charlie him, those The path of those who receive your net ma your favors
and not those who receive your wrath,
or those who go straight.
That's what we say in the Quran. Similar to what Jesus said, according to the Scripture,
no contradiction there at all.
Jesus, the one accused of being the son of God, while he didn't mean son in the literal sense, but the Jews, the high priests that he ran out of the temples. You know, people say that Jesus was a prophet of love, prophet of peace.
But when he went inside that temple and find those people changing money inside the temple, he wasn't so peaceful, was he?
What did he do? He grabbed some sticks.
And he stopped beating them across their backs in their head, and ran them out of the temple, and said that
you are not the sons of Abraham, you are the sons of your father, the devil.
For if you were the sons of Abraham, you would be doing the works of Abraham. That's what he told them. And because of that, they began to plot against him. And they went to Pontius Pilate, who was who was Pontius Pilate.
We're talking about a lesson here in history, who was Pontius Pilate, he wasn't a myth. He's a real. He was the head of Dodge City.
He was the governor of Jerusalem.
He was a governor, appointed by Caesar.
And they went
to Pontius Pilate and they asked him, we want you to indict this man. He calls himself the Son of God. And besides that, he calls itself the King of the Jews. King of the Jews meant as a felony against Caesar.
Son of God, it's a felony against us. Pontius Pilate, okay. Bring him here.
You know the story.
When it came to Pontius Pilate, and Pontius Pilate asked him,
What do you say about the crime? About the accusation that you call yourself? The Son of God? He said, Thou says, I'm the son of God.
Then Pontius Pilate said, and what do you say about the accuses accusation they make that you call yourself, King of the Jews? He said, Thou says, I'm the king of the Jews. Does that sound like a man who said, Yes, I am the Son of God. Yes, I am the king of the Jews. No, it doesn't. Because Pontius Pilate said after that, to those high priests, I find no fault with this man.
And he washed his hands of that issue, and he told the Jews, if you vote to convict him, you convict him yourselves.
And they say, if you do not find him guilty, thou are not a friend of Caesars. So just like today, they use their powerful lobby, to put pressure on that governor to do what to hand over Jesus Christ to them.
Jesus Christ, who spoke to his disciples in the upper room, about that comforter, you remember the garden of just seminary when he was up in that upper room, when he said to Almighty God, Oh, God, if it be your will remove this cup from me? Who's he talking to himself?
When he talked to his disciples in that upper room after they ate that last supper that came from the sky, a supper that wasn't cooked for them, a supper that was prepared for them for God, from God for God, by God Suppan, who was brought to them by the melodica, from the sky. in that upper room, they asked him or rabbi, what will happen to us after you leave us? He said, fear not.
Because after I leave you the Comforter, that counselor will come.
They said, Who is he?
You will know him when he comes. Because he will confirm me, He will speak of me. And you will know him when he comes. Because He will not speak of himself. But whatever He hears from God, that will he speak, you will know him because your hearts and your minds are asking for many things, but they're not prepared for that. So be it when he the Comforter comes. He will relate to you all things in detail. You will know him when he comes. Because when he speaks, that what she brings will remain with you forever.
This is in the Scripture, he's given a prophecy of somebody who would come afterwards. So who came after that to fulfill that prophecy? Did Jesus come back?
Who was the Holy Ghost? Did the Holy Ghost come back?
What human example and what prophet fulfilled that revelation, that prophecy by Jesus Christ that's in his gospel, and it's in greater detail. If you look to the Gospel of St. Barnabas, that was a that was excluded.
If you read the Gospel of Barnabas His name is there. The name Muhammad, is there that admirable one, that praiseworthy one is there, Barnabas that was the one that was blind, that was a disciple that was blind, you remember that? But they took that gospel out because they didn't like that one.
Jesus Christ, who appeared unto His disciples afterwards, after the conspiracy to crucify him and killed him. And Almighty God says to us, in this court on they crucified Him, not they killed him not. Therefore, we have the conviction and sound conviction that somebody was crucified.
Some somebody was put on the cross.
Maybe somebody died,
but it wasn't Jesus Christ.
Almighty God says to us, they killed him not they crucified Him not. And let's look at the definition of crucifixion. crucifixion is not putting somebody on the cross. That's not crucifixion.
crucifixion means death on the cross, isn't it?
If I say electrocution, execution, by injection, or by electric shooting, it means the person has to die. Because we just shoot some electricity to the body and they don't die. Is that called execution? No. If we inject them and they don't die, is that execution? No. If we get
Ask them. And after all the gas has finished, they're still laughing and looking at us. Is that execution? No.
So if Jesus was put on the cross, and he didn't die on the cross, it means what?
He was not crucified and he was not killed. And we have evidence of that fact.
Because right after the alleged conspiracy,
Joseph of our familia, one of his disciples, who was an executive, who was a Roman citizen, very wealthy, he went to Pontius Pilate and he asked Pontius Pilate, please let me have his body.
Let me have him.
And on what day? Do they claim that they put Jesus Christ on the cross? What day Do they claim? What day is that called?
What day? Is that called before Easter?
Good Friday, isn't it? is a good Friday.
And Friday begins what day when the sun goes down according to the Jewish faith.
Friday at sunset is what for the Jewish people? It's the Sabbath, isn't it? Well, any Jewish people will tell you that at sundown, no Jew can be executed. So if Jesus Christ was put on the cross, he had to be taken down before sunset.
And that's consistent with whatever people talk about about darkness came over to earth, and the whole earth became black.
Of course, there was only three people on that galgo. So he'll marry Magdalena marry his mother, and Joseph of alpha Mia with only three witnesses, the rest of them dispersed as he said they would.
But three days later, or two days later, when they came to look in the subculture, looking for the body of Jesus Christ, when they came to look for him, what did they find?
What did they find?
Nobody was there.
The body was not there.
The huge stone that covered the mouth of the cave,
the huge stone that covered the mouth of a stave, the cave that had closed the mouth of the cave, where was that stone?
It had been rolled back, isn't it?
And part of the garment was still there. And they looked for him every place.
And merit of Magdalena said that she met someone who she thought was the gardener.
And he called her by her name, or Mary. It is I Don't you recognize me.
And when Jesus
came to his disciples,
they thought he was a ghost. And they were afraid. And he said to them, fear not. It is I feel me, feel me. Church me, a ghost, I am not a spirit, I am not. So they thought
that he had died, and that he was a ghost. And he clarified to them. Don't be afraid it is i a spirit I am not. And to confirm to them. He said, I am hungry. Give me something to eat. And what did they give him? Some fish and honeycomb? Have you ever seen a ghost eaten fish in honeycomb?
If he was a ghost or spirit, he wouldn't have to move the rock back. He would walk through it.
If he was a ghost, he wouldn't tell them. Don't be afraid it is I if he was a ghost, he wouldn't ask for fish and honeycomb to eat. So that was Jesus
telling them I am not dead. As God said they crucified Him not they killed him not.
later on. Three of the disciples.
they witnessed Jesus Christ being raised up through the clouds and someone asked him, Why are you gazing at the clouds? And they say can you not see the Son of Man being lifted up?
And God says they killed him not that we lifted him up consistent,
the Quran and the Scripture.
Jesus, who was lifted up to the heavens and protected by God to return
as one of the major signs before the day of judgment. That is what the Quran tells us.
That Jesus was lifted up by God, but that Jesus will return he will be one of the major signs
Before the day of judgment and when it comes back, he will kill the Antichrist,
He will kill the swine mean in every filthy thing.
And he will pray with all the prophets
of Almighty God and He will be the man before the day of judgment.
Jesus the son of Mary, the man, the prophet, the Messenger of God, slandered and maligned by the treacherous High Priest among the Bani Israel.
slandered and maligned by those unfortunate people who call themselves at that time, Christians who were really pagan Romans.
They will do by a pastor named Paul.
I didn't say an apostle, I said an apostate.
He calls himself an apostle.
But the history of Paul is that he was Saul of Tarsus.
See the history together.
He was Saul of Tarsus. He was an apostate Hebrew, what we call today a reformed Jew. That means he ate swine.
He drank alcohol. He didn't pray as the Jews did anymore. As a matter of fact, he was a bounty hunter,
who hunted and searched for Christians, and brought them in to be punished and killed for a price. Saul of tacitus,
a Jew and a Roman citizen, where the word
a gentleman and a scholar, you heard that terminology, right? A gentleman and a scholar. That's the best of two worlds.
That's the reformed Jewish person who is also a citizen of Ron
Paul of Tarsus, who himself said, One day I was on the road to Damascus, hunting for Christians,
as he normally did,
riding his horse with two or three other people. And he said that I saw a light which blinded me.
I heard a voice and I fell off of my horse.
And he said that Jesus Christ appeared to him in a vision. I said, in a vision, not Jesus Christ jumped out of the bushes.
And Jesus Christ said to him in a vision, Paul, Paul, what you resist my mission?
Or why'd you kick against the goads? or Why do you resist the message of the church? How have you want to interpret it? Paul, you have been appointed and chosen by me as an apostle to the Gentiles. Didn't we just read a little while ago that Jesus Christ said, Go not unto the Samaritans, go not unto the Gentiles. Here's a contradiction right there.
As a result of that, so called vision and that self appointment by Paul as a result of that
the New Testament was written, and what's the name of the new What's the name of Paul's books? Do you know the names of them? They begin with what?
x, isn't it?
After that, what is x?
You got the epistles, you got the Colossians. You got the Romans.
All of these different books that were written to whom?
The Romans, the Samaritans, the Gentiles, by whom? by Paul.
What we have today, in Christology is the writings of Paul, seven eighths of all the writings of Jesus Christ is written by Paul, who was the first person that said that Jesus is the Son of God, wasn't Jesus itself? Never.
Jesus never said, I'm the son of God who said it. Paul said it.
Who was the first one that said that Jesus is God? Jesus never said it. Paul said it. Who's the first one that said that Jesus was one person in the Trinity, Paul said it. Who's the people that adopted it? The Romans, and it became official in the Council of Nicea 354 years after Jesus Christ.
And as for Matthew, Mark, Luke, and john, none of them ever saw Jesus Christ never laid their eyes on Jesus Christ never sat with him never equalled him, never prayed with him, never walked with Him.
wrote whatever he wrote if he wrote it 40 years after he
JOHN wrote it if he wrote it eight years after Jesus. So his four gospels before Paul, who never saw walk, talk, prayed or even lay their eyes on Jesus Christ. And Paul, who was a bounty hunter, a killer of Christians who said that he saw him in a vision. And here's the whole, the here's the whole kit.
The whole kit
called the New Covenant of the New Testament.
And that's why Christians today have so many mysteries and so many problems and so many inconsistencies.
Now, don't be angry with me.
Because I had to find my way through that maze.
It wasn't through my intelligence. It wasn't because I was clever. It wasn't because I was righteous. It wasn't because I was doing so much research, but they're caught on made it so crystal clear.
I would have to be a pure hypocrite, after reading the Quran, to keep on believing those mysteries.
Jesus, the son of Mary, the man, the prophet,
the Messenger of God, slandered and maligned by those that hated him
and made into a man God,
the Son of God, a distinct divine Person of the persons in the so called Trinity.
I want to remind you just a few things.
One, that Jesus Christ prophesied the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him. He calls him that comforter.
He said he would explain all things in detail. He will not speak of himself. whatever He hears that Celli speak, He will speak of me, what is recited to him shall remain with you forever. So therefore, Jesus prophesied Mohammed, and the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessing be upon them prophesied Jesus Christ. And here's the book, in which Mohammed peace and blessings be upon and received from his Lord, that confirmed Jesus Christ. How clearly Could it be that in this book, there is a chapter among 114 chapters that is named Maryam, who is Miriam that is married the mother of Jesus Christ?
Certainly, it would be more appropriate we would think that a book given to Mohammed peace and blessings be upon him would have a chapter dedicated to his mother.
His mother's name was Amina. So this shouldn't be we would think, a chapter in here dedicated to Mohammed's mother. But it isn't, because it wasn't necessary. But it was necessary for a book to be named after Maryam to speak about the birth of millennium, the birth of millenniums Son, Jesus Christ, and all the connection of Jesus Christ in his life and his miracles because Jesus said, What?
He will speak of me. What else did he say? That whatever he speaks of, will not be from himself. But whatever is revealed to him from God. Mohammed said that this was revealed to him from God.
What else did he say? That it would explain all things in detail? The Quran says, verily, this is a book from Almighty God that explains all things in detail. What else did he say? That that which he received from God would remain with you forever. The Quran was revealed 14 124 years ago, just as it is 6626 verses, and non Muslim scholars will tell all of us, this is the greatest miracle of the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. And yes, this book was memorized in its entirety by many of his companions. And that's why today in this room, there's at least one Muslim here that has memorized this whole book.
You can't go to any country in the world, hardly any Muslim village in the world where there's at least one person that hasn't memorized the whole book.
You won't find a Christian in the whole world that has memorized the Bible because they don't even know what the Bible is.
One example that we can give
is that if all the Bibles of the world was thrown in the ocean, all the Bible's throw them in the ocean, burn them all up. And then after that, see if the Christians can create a new Bible.
They can't do it because they don't even know how many chapters and how many books it is they don't agree.
But if all the Korans all the books were burned, thrown in the ocean, too
in one day,
it comes right back because there are literally
10s of millions of Muslims that have memorized this whole book, as it was memorized in the life of the Prophet Salas. And before he passed away, so what did Jesus Christ say?
A book that would remain with you forever.
Jesus Christ never said that he was God, or the exclusive Son of God. Jesus never said that he was one divine person in a three God Trinity. Jesus never asked all that ordered anyone to worship Him. Any Christian as here.
Show me in your Bible,
where Jesus Christ said, I am God worship me, will raise $1,000 for you right now. You got your Bibles with you give you five minutes to look for it.
We can raise 1000 pounds for you right here. $1,000 for you right here for you leave the door, just produced that verse where Jesus said, I am God, worship me.
Don't give me somebody else's words. Don't give me no parables.
If he's God, he knows how to say I'm God.
And therefore worship me.
Now you go home and look through your Bibles how many Bibles you got, call the priests. Call the Reverend. Call the experts. See if you can get this $1,000 They call me back.
I've been asking this question for the last seven, eight years, all over the world. And nobody has emailed me and nobody has produced it.
And nobody dares to lie on Jesus and me and fabricated verse.
If he didn't say it plain and clear, he never said it.
No one who made this horrendous claim ever met, walk, talk to or received any authority from Jesus Christ to make such a claim. It was Paul and his writings to the Romans, the Corinthians the Galatians, two pagan Roman emperors, who mandated and fabricated this lie and this tremendous fabrication and made it official. In the fourth century,
the earliest gospel writers, I told you, what, 40 years after Jesus and the last one, Matthew, Mark, Luke, and john was 18 years after Jesus. And ironically, Matthew, Mark, Luke, john, no one knows who their last name was, how the four men who wrote independently, all of them wrote, according to according to according to according to
Did you ever think of that?
If I wrote a book, and pass it on to somebody, when I write, according to Khalid,
and in summary of 15 years later, they wrote, according to Matthew, according to Judy, according to Bob,
somebody would have a last name.
Your passport has the last name, your license got a last name, your check got a last name, you were born with the last name, you wouldn't accept the check from anybody without the last name. So how in the world do the Christians accept four gospels that make Jesus Christ the Son of God makes him God, and makes him part of a trinity, and nobody seems to know their last name.
Therefore, we must view Jesus as He viewed himself, a man, a prophet, and a messenger, sent with a gospel to correct the deviations of the children of Israel, and to announce the coming of that final incomprehensive, Counselor, prophet and messenger to the whole of humanity. Every Christian should set aside their false conditioning, and their perpetration of this blasphemy against Almighty God and this slander against Jesus Christ and His blessing mother, Jesus Christ, the son of Mary was the servant of Almighty God surrendering himself to his creator, surrendering himself and saying, only that which he was ordered to say, he like all the prophets and messengers of God said, La ilaha
illAllah, Muhammad Rasulullah. That is, they said, there's nothing to be worshipped except Almighty God, the Creator of all.
And Jesus Christ confirmed that Mohammed would be the Messenger of God and that final messenger, and that means Mohammed or pseudo law.
The brothers and sisters
are Muslims. You should convey this message to your colleagues, to your co workers, to your neighbors, in a good and a dignified, straight
Forward way, wanting them to free themselves of this blasphemy. So they will be consistent with at least the first
of the 10 commandments. And when Jesus Christ
asked his disciples, which of the commandments is the greatest? Do you remember that?
What did he say?
Which are the commandments? Whose commandments, the commandments of Moses? What did he say? He said, he, O Israel, the Lord thy God is one.
What did he say? He said, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and all that mind and all thy soul. And thou shalt not bow down to any graven images in the heavens, or in the earth, or in the sea below.
That is the law of God. That's what Jesus Christ said. So Muslims, you should invite
your non Muslim friends, neighbors, colleagues, co workers,
to embrace the statement of Laila in the live feed themselves of this blasphemy and this crime against Almighty God and the slander against Jesus Christ.
And for our guests here,
who are sincere Christians.
And speaking to you, pleading with you, appealing to you, just as I'm sitting right there and chairs in front of you.
Just like you're sitting right there, now it's me.
So I'm talking to me, I'm looking at you, but I'm talking to myself, as someone spoke to me.
And I am so grateful.
And so grateful that someone spoke to me straight enough and clear enough and gave me the evidences and approves and invited me to embrace the statement, La ilaha illa Allah
and allow me to know and understand the prophecy of Jesus Christ that Muhammad Rasulullah sallallahu wasallam Muslim, c'est la ilaha illa la
se la ilaha illallah wa,
This is the statement
that 1.4 billion people in the world, Chinese, African, Australian, American, French, German, white, black, male, female, rich, Paul from the east and the west, have embraced.
We call ourselves Muslims, because we surrender ourselves to Almighty God, we don't associate any partners with God.
Because Abraham was a Muslim.
Because Moses was a Muslim, because David Solomon was a Muslim, because john the baptist was a Muslim, because Jesus Christ was a Muslim. Of course, Mohammed was a Muslim, because Muslim means
one who surrenders himself and submits themselves to Almighty God don't get trapped up by the Arabic language is simply means one that surrenders themselves. Because if I caught you out there in the street, and I put a pistol in your face, in the dark, and I said, Give me all your money. I said, in Africa, English, you would give it to me.
You would surrender.
Well, who is more powerful,
Almighty God who is more worthy to be worshipped, who is more worthy to surrender to, to acknowledge, to embrace,
your own fears?
Muslim se la ilaha illAllah.
This is the statement La ilaha illAllah Muhammad, Allah pseudo God that we invite you to embrace. It is not our job to convert anybody.
conversion is something of the heart,
something of the tongue. God gives everybody a tongue to do what they want to do with it. God gives everybody the heart and the chance. So if your hearts are open, if your minds are open, my suggestion for you is that you should say in your hearts, la isla in law.
You just say in your minds by the conviction of what Jesus Christ said concerning Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Knowing that Jesus Christ prophesied Mohammed and that Mohammed slawson confirmed Jesus Christ, yes, they came together on the statement of law, law in the law, Mohammed or pseudo law.
I want to thank
the organizers of this, this lecture. I want to thank even the people who offered this lecture hall to us, I want to thank all the brothers and sisters of Australia, Sydney, or wherever you came from, to hear this lecture.
Want to thank especially the non Muslims that came here out of curiosity
if you came here thinking that maybe some
strange guy from America is gonna be there. Let me just go and see what he's talking about. If you came for that reason, that's okay also, but those who came because perhaps the subject itself was critical for you. And you wanted to hear perhaps, the Islamic perspective on Jesus Christ, the prophet of Allah, I want to thank you. And I'm going to remind you that the life you save may be your own. Thank you very much.
And the mantra that Jesus preached, which was, turn the other cheek, Muslims preach killing and slain unbelievers wherever you find them. If Jesus and Mohammed preach the same universal message, why does one preach peace and the other does not?
First of all, let me see if I can put this here in proper context.
If the Christian who wrote this can remember, or if a Christian wrote this, Jesus told his disciples
to sell their belongings
and purchase swards.
Now, he never lived to lead them into warfare. But certainly, he didn't tell them to sell their belongings, and by swards, to turn the other cheek.
So you can isolate if you want just one statement of Jesus Christ. At the same token, when he went into the temple, and ran out the money changes,
and said to them, that you are not the sons of Abraham, but you are the sons of your father, the devil, and he beat them across their backs with sticks.
He was not preaching love.
So I just like to say to you that the other thing that you should keep in mind about Jesus Christ, in case you don't know, is that his entire mission was only two years and four months,
two years and four months.
So obviously, Jesus Christ could not do much.
He said many powerful things of which we accept all of them, but he wasn't sent to be a warrior. He wasn't sent to be a ruler. He wasn't sent to be a statesman. So whatever he wasn't sent, we don't expect for him to do that. But that did not limit the message of God.
Now, let's take another prophet that came before Jesus Christ, Solomon, and David, did they preach to turn the other cheek?
They were prophets of God, they love God. God loves them.
Certainly there was an end, Jesus Christ, in case you don't know, was a descendant of David, wasn't he?
So a descendant of David and a prophet of Almighty God, he spoke the message that God told him to speak. And we didn't say that they were identical in what they spoke, we said they were both prophets. And they were both set by Almighty God and they were both messengers. Yes, there is a distinction and their message, one came to preach a gospel to announce the other, the other one came to teach a comprehensive message. And Almighty God said to us in the Quran, had he not checked one group of people by another.
Then there would be
synagogues, temples, churches, and mosques. desecrated and pulled down and there will be corruption in the earth. What is checking one people by the other mean?
Some people who are aggressors, who wants to take other things from other people take their land and rake their women. If somebody doesn't check them, they will do that all over the world. So from time to time, Almighty God who's the knower of his creatures, he checks one group of people by the other. As for the statement of Muslims wanting to kill I think that it's unfair for anyone to characterize Muslims as just wanting to kill Christians and Jews like with some kind of bloodthirsty vampires running through the earth. Yes, me saying people accept Islam or die.
You will not find any one of the 2.3 million new Muslims in America
who were told by anybody except Islam or die.
You will not find any of the 78,000 Muslims, new Muslims that accepted Islam last year in America that accepted Islam because somebody told them to accept Islam or die. You will not find any of the 26,000 new Muslims in Europe that are in the UK
accepted Islam because somebody said it's accept Islam or die. So I think that you need to be more open minded
and a little bit less pre conditioned. When you want to talk about Islam. And if you want to read the Quran if you want to go to put onto us, it's 6626 verses.
speak about all the verses and see how you can compare Mohammed and Jesus Christ, because that's what we're trying to do. Don't isolate a verse that you don't know what the meaning of it is, and don't isolate something about Jesus Christ, which you equally don't know the meaning of.
And God knows best.
Another question says, Are you trying to portray that seven eighths of the Christian scripture current is mainly based on the teaching of Paul, who was a bounty hunter, is what I said
as exactly what I said,
I said, seven eighth,
or let's be a little more liberal, let's say six eighths, how many books in the New Testament?
Well divide them. And you'll find that six eighths of them are three quarters of them are written by Paul. And Paul was a bounty hunter, his name was solid tosses, he took the name of Paul, he never saw Jesus Christ ever, except in that vision that only he saw, while there were three other people with him.
So that's exactly what I said, Don't feel bad.
What you just simply need to do is continue your reading beyond what Paul said. And what Matthew, Mark, Luke and john, the ones who didn't have a second name said,
just be open minded enough to go a little bit beyond there. And Khalid didn't say this. Khalid didn't say that to you. Look to the Encyclopedia Britannica, you got a computer, look to the Compton encyclopedia, go to the Christian encyclopedia, go to the go to the Concord of Christianity, go to the Catholic digest, go to 1000 other books. And you will see this is not what Khalid said, I'm just giving you the statistics.
That's exactly what I said.
A non Muslim said who took the place of Jesus when he was supposedly on the cross? Well, many of the scholars, many of the scholars said that it was the one that betrayed him for seven pieces of silver. Who was that?
Judas. Now we know historically, that Judas
looked more like Jesus Christ than any of the other disciples.
We don't have any proof that it was Judas. The proof that I gave you was that it wasn't Jesus Christ that was crucified or killed. That's what I said, I don't have any further evidence. But I'm going to give you some indications that church fathers, church scholars, Bible scholars have indicated. And I said after that, God knows best.
So did Mohammed have access to the Scriptures? No, he didn't have access to the Scriptures, he had access to God.
And God is the one that revealed all the scriptures to all his prophets.
So the same angel that came to Abraham and the same angel that came to Moses and same angel that came to David came, the Solomon came to Isaac came to zecharia, they came to john the baptist came to Jesus Christ, the same Angel Gabriel came to the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him and taught him what he needed to be taught by Almighty God.
All you need to do is as a Christian, you've written many books throughout your life.
many books I say to you that, don't you think that it would be worthy of you to take a copy of the Quran, which is available, you can download it today, if you want to, you can get it on CD DVD, you can read it right off of the computer if you want off the website, or you can be given a copy of it one like this one.
And you can read 10 pages a day and become a critique critic of the code and see what it is.
Compare it. And then after that, come and ask your questions, at least but though but be fair, be equitable, be reasonable. Read it first, before you make comments or you reject it. That's all I asked you to do. Because that's my job.
I read the Bible. I'm still reading from time to time. Then you read the quote.
Can you tell me the verse in the Bible that says the Prophet Muhammad is to come after me and explain it, please? I have
That verse for you. I won't call it for you or the people that are here. But if you see me immediately after this meeting, I'll give you the verse itself because I'm not a coder of the Bible.
I am not an authority on the Bible. And I didn't come here to quote the Bible.
I'm not an authority on the Quran. But the Quran is a book that I use for research and for my following and for my legislation.
I read the Bible for reference purposes, not for propagation purposes. And I don't read it because I believe everything is authentic, so I don't want to promote it.
But what I will do for you is I will give you the evidence in your book, where your book said, and your church fathers said that in this chapter and verse,
according to the Gospel of Barnabas, that he named the Prophet Muhammad peace and blessings be upon him directly. And according to the Gospel of Barnabas, if you want to know where it's at, it's in a book called the Apocrypha.
Maybe you can spell it, but you can find it. The apocrypha of five books that were taken out of the Scriptures, because the Romans are at the Council of Nicea. They didn't like those five books, so they took them out. That's why they're called apocrypha. The Gospel of Barnabas is one of those books. I'll give you that after the meeting.
Do you agree faith before knowledge or knowledge before faith? Well, that's kind of tricky question, isn't it?
I don't answer tricky questions.
But how can you have faith without knowledge? If someone didn't call you by your name, when you were a child, you wouldn't respond to your name.
That's called knowledge.
You can't worship God, if you don't know God.
You can't repair a car, if you don't know the parts of the car.
You can't count money if you can't do math.
So certainly, knowledge comes before faith.
Faith is based upon knowledge.
This what we're taught that faith is based upon knowledge. When God wants to inspire His servants, when God wants to instruct His servants. What does he do? He gives them knowledge. As to he gives them knowledge of himself, knowledge of the world knowledge of themselves, then after that, he gives them the basis for faith and, and conviction. So yes, we believe that knowledge comes before faith.
Brother, you said to become a Muslim you need to convert. I didn't say that.
Nobody heard me say that. If you want to be a Muslim, you need to convert. I never use the word convert ever. I'm not a convert. I am a revert.
Every child is born is born in innocence.
Jesus Christ even said, you cannot come into the kingdom of God, the kingdom of God except as what?
As the child innocence. Jesus never said to anybody, that a child that's innocent, free of any sin is born, when they're born in the world, or sin is stamped on their forehead. That doesn't make sense.
And if you want to say that all of us are born in sin, because Adam and Eve committed a sin, no, Adam and Eve,
succumbed to their natural human instincts, which God created them to do.
And then God taught them names and knowledge and showed them how to repent, which they did.
How does Almighty God hold all the creatures responsible for a mistake of the first ones he made? And he knew?
That's not just, that's something that was been configured by somebody else. No.
The bearer of a burden doesn't bear the burden of another, the one that commits a crime.
The one that has committed no crime doesn't bear the crime of a person that commits a crime.
That doesn't make sense at all. No child is innocent. So therefore, all of us are born with what we call a natural disposition. What does that natural disposition it's the same disposition a child has when it's born to find the breast of its mother.
No one has to tell that child to look for the breast of the mother. Instinctively when the child is born, the breasts fill up with milk and the child finds the breasts
instinct God put in that child.
And that's the instinct God placed in the lactating breast of the woman, in the same instinct,
we search for God, we search for what is right, we search for what is clean, what is decent, what is fair, we search for ways to worship and know God, and through searching. That's our natural disposition to worship, to know God, and to submit to God. So what I did, I got through by the grace of God, I was able to break through, find my way through the preconditioning that somebody else put on me.
And Islam found me and when I when it found me, I found it and I embraced it. So I embraced Islam and I became a revert to my natural disposition.
Suppose miracles and mantras have occurred for the last 2000 years. How do you as a Muslim, explain this? God does what He wills the Quran says, five, newly married,
Almighty God does whatever he pleases and a phenomena which is called an Arabic magenta. magenta in Arabic, it means a phenomenon, or we call it a miracle, something that cannot be explained by scientific law or rationale.
These are happening all the time.
But God gives this to profits to do one thing to prove to those who doubt
that they have been sent by Almighty God. So every prophet that was sent received a agenda.
There are no more profits on there's no more human beings walking around with any mortgages.
The reason why I asked are all human beings born Muslim I just answered that yes, all human beings are born submitting to their natural disposition and the Arabic word it means to surrender and to submit to your natural disposition, that is not to have any rebellion towards that which is ordering you that which is a cultivating you, this is called to surrender. And in Arabic, the word surrender means Muslim. When a person recognizes Almighty God acknowledges Almighty God conforms Almighty God and worships Almighty God, that means in Arabic language Muslim.
The reason why I ask is that I know a Christian family who gave birth to a child and the grandmother pressured her daughter to baptize Krishna, the child immediately due to her reason that the child is a Muslim, until such time is baptized a Christian? Well, I'm not responsible for that conviction.
What is the name of the missing detracted Bible chapter which mentioned the forthcoming of the Prophet Mohammed. So a lot of them, I mentioned that it's called the Apocrypha, there are five books of which the the Gospel of Barnabas is one. It's called the Apocrypha.
Just put it in on your computer on your search. If you spell it wrong,
you know, take it and put on the speller. And it'll spell it right for you. And it'll bring it right there to you.
If Paul wrote the testament, and that is not correct,
or distorted? Is there are more error or correct and authentic Bible?
No, as a matter of fact,
what Paul has written,
along with other collaborating writers, has been widely accepted by the Christian world. But that's not my fault.
They're accepting it without investigating it. It's not my fault, because there is evidence that the Church Fathers Bible scholars have written extensively.
And again, for those who want some evidence of that, I've got it with me, I can share that with you too.
And if this is not enough, again,
go to your computer and put into Word, Paul. Paul of tasks Saul of Tarsus. And then it'll pop up and you'll get the whole history of all the books he wrote, then what you do is deduct what he wrote from all the books of the New Testament, and then you get the formula.
Then you deduct the other four that didn't have a name and you get the formula, then you see you got no other books left.
It's a simple process.
I was told by a non Muslim that Jesus sometimes was God and sometimes man.
And we have no right to understand this. Well, if you don't have a right to understand it.
Then you don't need to know the pin number to your bank account either.
You wouldn't agree with that.
Or if I said, Give me your PIN number. You wouldn't agree with that. But you don't think we have a right to know whether Jesus is God? Oh, man, that doesn't make sense to me. I think you're just being a little stubborn there.
Does Judas have any reference major him in the Koran? Absolutely not.
No, he doesn't. There's no need for it. Judas wasn't a prophet. And it wasn't a companion of the Prophet Mohammed. So a lot of Islam. And enough has been said about Judas. And I think that Jesus Christ said enough at that last supper that we don't need to say anything more about Judas. I think it's very clear to everybody that whether it was Judas crucified or not, one or two things happened to Judas. Either Judas committed suicide by diving off of a mountain, or Jesus, Judas was killed in a place of Jesus Christ wanted to and all the Bible scholars agree with that one or two different faiths happen to do this. And so I don't think there's any other need for us to make reference to
Judas because everyone agrees about what took place with him.
Some Muslims have experienced
or explained to me that it was not Jesus who was crucified, but replaced by an enemy to take his place on the cross. That's correct. That's, that's one of the more popular theories, no evidence of that we don't put it forward as a fact. It's a theory.
And that's not our theory. That's the theory of the Bible scholars and historians. Can you further explain what crucifixion means? I think that everybody here heard what I said. crucifixion means to die on the cross. It doesn't mean to be nailed to the cross. For experiments have been made. Some Christians themselves have went through nailing themselves on the cross. And they have found that by now is being driven through your hands and nails being driven through your feet into a wooden cross and you're hanging there doesn't cause you to die, not immediately, you will die from exhaustion. You will die from loss of blood in three or four days, maybe, but it doesn't happen in a few hours.
crucifixion means death on the cross. So if you don't die is not crucifixion, just like execution means death by injection or death by a gas or death by electrocution. If you don't die, they're gonna put some more in you.
Neither did Jesus die, nor did he die for our sins.
I mean, that would be double jeopardy.
I mean, we still sin.
So that means that if you sin, and now Jesus died for the sins, then you can just sin From now on, and you don't have to pay for it, which is now everybody's a sin. So was to use the following scripture at all.
Does it make sense? If you try to explain that to your children, they will tell you that that doesn't even make sense.
Do the representatives of the Vatican continue to deny up until today the prophecy of the Prophet Mohammed so lost them, they do not deny it.
You need to read the Vatican has a section which is dedicated to the study of the Quran, to the life of the Prophet Mohammed, salaam, Islam and the event of Islam. And they have read conclusively that Mohammed is a prophet of God, they have written that conclusively, they just haven't read haven't resolved or ratified the relationship between Jesus Christ and Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Because if they did that, there'll be no need for the Vatican.
what and why made you revert? Well, there's nothing really extraordinary about that. I'll be honest, if you think I've got some kind of extraordinary story like Paul, I don't
know, Islam found me honestly, Islam found me and I'm just grateful for it. And there's no real extraordinary story. But
I'll give you my card. And if you want to send me an email, I'll send you a little half a page and tell you how I became a Muslim. I'll be glad to do that.
The brother wanted me to mention to people that I became a Muslim in 1965, and that this was the same year that our brother, Alhaji Malik Chavez, better known to the world as Malcolm X that he was assassinated. Yes, I did get the chance to meet him. We will not homeboy
But I did get a chance to meet him and his life and his sacrifice, not Malcolm X. Honestly,
I don't reveal. And I don't propagate the life of Malcolm X or his message.
But when the caterpillar at when a caterpillar turned into a butterfly
for only three months or two and a half months after he made his pilgrimage, he repented.
he straightened up and flew correctly. he repented to God, he became a Muslim. Then he became alhazmi, like Chavez. And in those two and a half or three months, the words that he said, coupled with the dynamic speech that he had,
was impressive to the world, you cannot find a library anywhere in the world. I told you, I've been 37 countries. And I'll tell you, for sure, there's no country in the world, I've been to where there's not a library, a major library that doesn't have some of the works of Malcolm X there. So he evidently he's a profound person all over the world. He's affecting people all over the world. Well, in 1965, I was 18 years old. So I've given you now the formula right? I was 18 years old. And
and I accepted Islam about six months after he was assassinated.
Can you explain the Trinity in Christian terms and explain how it is wrong?
Okay, I think this is about the fourth question that I said that I will stay here after everybody else leaves.
If you pay me.
No, just kidding.
I'll stay here after everybody else leaves. And I think there's a room that we can set those who are really sincere. Now, if you're not sincere, you just wanted like calling me and badgering me with some some tricky questions. Please don't waste your time and don't waste my time. But the person that asked this particular question, I have that also in this book right here for you. I figured that somebody would ask that. So I have that. And I'll tell you exactly what is said that the Trinity means but I won't take up the question period. To answer that particular question. I won't take up this time to answer that. But yes, we can answer it because it's written. And again, I'm
referring you to what?
To the web, the World Wide Web.
Most of this information that you're asking me, anybody can get it just like you can get pornography that you don't ask for.
You can get it
does the does the Old Testament and I'm not making a comparison between the two. Does the Old Testament mentioned Muhammad? And where? What is the Old Testament? Where is it? Why is there a New Testament? Is the Old Testament same or different to the Bible?
There was never a scripture set by Almighty God called the Old Testament.
It was the Romans after the Council of Nicea, who made the division between scriptures and called what came before Matthew, Mark, Luke and john and what Paul wrote the New Testament. I mean, they call that the Old Testament, and what Matthew, Mark, Luke and john wrote, and what Paul wrote, they call that the New Testament. Why did they call it that? Because the Old Testament was the covenant to be followed by the Jews and the nazarenes. And the New Testament was to be followed by those who call themselves Christians under the mandate of the Romans.
But there's no scripture called old or new testament, that's something that somebody else made up.
And there's no book called The Bible. God didn't reveal the Bible to anybody.
You refer to Jesus has been a rabbi.
Yes, that was his title. The word Rabbi
means two things.
Rugby could mean, Lord, not the Lord of the heavens and earth, but like landlord or like a teacher.
So rabbi, just like you got rabbis today are people who are learning in the law, Jesus Christ was given a special gift by Almighty God, he was given the law in his mouth.
God gave him a special ability to write and to speak, and to determine the law. So he was called the rabbi, the great teacher, that was the name that he was called. So was he a Jew or a Muslim? He was both.
He was a Jew, because he from the tribe of Judah. He was a Muslim because he submitted himself to Almighty God. He did what Almighty God ordered him to do.
And that would be real good if all the Jews became Muslims.
Because that's what Jesus was.
What's Jesus last name?
well obviously he didn't have the last name of his father because he didn't have a father.
And Mary was born from her mother, Hannah. Now the Quran doesn't tell us who was the father of Hannah. But the end, the Bible doesn't tell us who was the father who was the husband of Hannah. But there is but there is a genealogy for Jesus Christ.
In the Bible, as well as outside of the Bible, again, you can get it if you go to the computer,
put in the word Hannah.
And it will bring you four different Hannah's, then you want to know
which Hana put in Hana, the mother of
Mary, and you keep on searching until you find the right Hannah. And then you ask another question, and you're going to lead to her genealogy.
But for us, that issue is not important. We know that Hannah was the mother of Mary and that Mary was the mother of Jesus. This is what we know, what was the name of Mary's husband, Joseph.
After she had Jesus Christ, she married a gentleman by the name of Joseph, and they had another son whose name was James.
But James was not the father of Jesus.
I mean, if you're implying something here,
and did James Hassan work with Jesus doing the work of Allah, I don't know if they work together, honest with you, I don't know if they work together, we know very little about the Early life of Jesus Christ.
Your guests might be as good as mine, he has a lot of different theories that he was that he wanted to India, or this or that, so and so we know that he was engaged in carpentry, and also that he was a shepherd. But we know very little about the Early life of Jesus Christ. And we don't really need to, because Jesus Christ is known to the world for his gospel, not for his early life. And that gospel was two years and four months, a very powerful, intense, two years, and four months.
And I don't know the Arabic word for James.
I was doing door to door for a friend. And she told me that her Sunday school teacher explained the trilogy as God coming down to earth as a human to show people the right way. Wall. That's right. So she needs to probably go to Monday school.
Whoever the teacher was, she's not even reading her Bible. Or for that matter, she's not reading any authority of the father to church fathers or Bible scholars at all. That is not what the Trinity means. I think if we have time before, and we answer all these questions, he has about 10 more questions. I can maybe just read that, for instance, if it comes up to the third time, I'm gonna read it.
But that person who asked that question, you also can just meet me?
Don't Don't worry, we're not going to meet one of those special rooms where the angel came down. But there's this room here that we can meet in, I think, and I can answer that question for you. Thank you for your beautiful talk on the Prophet Jesus Christ. Thank you also for your compliment.
My question is what?
what and how are Muslims supposed to act? And do when the Prophet Jesus returns?
Since Muslims and Christians believe Jesus will return and will follow? Should we not live in peace and harmony with Christians until that Islam is not the enemy? That's correct. Well, let's make this issue here clear.
Neither the Quran
nor any Muslim scholars or anyone ever said that Christians themselves are the enemies of Muslims. Nobody said that.
It is not the Christian themselves.
That we have a different suit.
It is the statement that people make from their mouths, which they have no right to make as a loss upon versus woman Abdullah manif Tara Lai, gazyva
minister, Allah Allah Allahu katiba, wa Who are you in Islam?
It is this statement that people make which they have no evidence for, which is a blasphemy against God, which is, which is a slander against Jesus Christ in Islam.
The saying that God has three are saying that God is a son, or saying that Jesus Christ is God, this is the issue that we have.
And this is what we're trying to address. Now, we have an enmity towards that issue because God has an enmity towards that issue. So it's not personal.
It's principle. What is the contradiction in the number of days in a particular day which Jesus was supposedly crucified?
The number of days in a particular day. And the particular day
if Jesus Christ was placed on a cross, I'd like to repeat myself. It was Friday.
And it was Friday, in the early afternoon.
As a Jew,
he could not have remained on the cross
further than sunset, because even today,
a person of the Jewish faith, who is an Orthodox Jew, they cannot be arrested and held in prison by the police during the Sabbath, but they can be escorted to their home or the or their synagogue. And they can stay there until the Sabbath is over. And then they can be arrested and taken to jail. They can't push a button. They can't do anything on a Saturday because it's a part of their faith. It's understood around the world. It was understood then. So therefore, I say that if Jesus Christ was put on the cross, that's not crucifixion. He had to be taken down because he was a Jew.
But we don't know if that's the case. We said it's a theory. What we do know is he was not crucified and he was not killed. This is the issue.
Those who witnessed if there was a crucifixion of Jesus Christ, there was only three people there documented according to your books, marry Magdalena, marry the mother of Jesus, and Joseph of asamiya are the only three equality your scriptures that was on the hill of Golgotha that day.
How can our does Christianity explain its saints and other major day miracles? Why is the divisiveness between Christianity Protestants, Anglicans, Catholics, etc? What is the right?
What are the right wing American Christian view of Jesus?
This is a three point question almost like the Trinity.
So it's a little difficult for me to answer. It's kind of a mystery to me.
But I think it's a question that I can address. And I'll take that question also. In the upper room, I mean, in the other room.
If Jesus did not die on the cross, why did he say to the two thieves?
Who said he said that?
Who said it was Jesus that said that?
No evidence that Jesus said that?
How can we as Muslims,
minimize the sections within our religion? and unite is one as a different subject altogether? But I think that you should know the answer to that inshallah.
The last couple of questions here. And thank you very much for being
you people have been very nice to me that that don't have to answer a lot of questions. What is the difference between a Jew and a Hebrew? A Jew is a person who's part of the tribe of Judah, they take their, their lineage from the tribe of Judah, this was the original meaning of a Jew.
Jew is the general terminology, which means people who are part of the nation of Israel,
but originally the Jews was the law keeping body of the banning Israel, the Abrahamic tribes and the banning Israel. How many sons that Jacob have 12 Judah was one. What was their job? They were the scribes. They were the lawyers.
They were the elite. They were the ones who wrote the prescriptions. So the tribe of Judah they were also the class of the priests. The so to be known as a Jew, was a was a title was a privilege. And now because it was a privilege to be called the Jew.
Everyone who is of the Hebrew faith or speaks to Hebrew language, generally is referred to as a Jew, but Originally, it was a tribe.
I want to thank
all of you, Muslim brothers and sisters, I want to thank the non Muslims, especially for your tolerance and your patience. I want to say that I didn't mean to
step on anybody's toes. But if I did, that's because you got pretty long shoes.
And I didn't mean to malign anybody, or hurt anybody's feelings, and I didn't cast any aspersions upon Jesus Christ, upon Christianity upon the Christians, that wasn't the aim. The aim was to try to reconcile the life of Jesus Christ, as a man, as a prophet, as a messenger of Almighty God and a servant of Almighty God, we hope that we have done some justice in this regard, and that we have said something that may stimulate your thinking.
For those of you
who would kind of like to choke me or knock me out,
or ask some further questions.
I'll be available for you before you leave. Okay, thank you very much.
What is the purpose of life of life?
Why is it that when we ask the simple question,
what is the purpose of our lives?
Why do we get so many different answers?
Is because people haven't really thought about it.
It's too frightening.
Not the question itself is frightening. But what's frightening is that if we answer it, clearly, it may change our lives. indelibly and we are afraid of change.
And now we have discovered that every part of creation that has been discovered is inside of a drop of water.
Or the Quran already said that to us 1500 years ago, that we created everything in every single thing from water. The Quran said that.
We want to talk this evening about
Jesus, the son of Mary,
and his phenomenal birth.
that very few human beings, whether Muslims or Christians have any argument about
we believe, and our Koran makes it clear for us and confirms for us that Jesus Christ in fact, he was born without the intervention of sperm.
that his mother Mary, that bless it woman, she became pregnant by the word of God.
No man touched her.
or homicides are committed every 19 minutes.
And two rapes are committed every seven minutes.
And there are three robberies
every 59 seconds.
There are 257,000 children that are legally or illegally aborted. That is 257,000 children are killed in the womb.
21 million children
are born every year out of wedlock, who do not know their mothers and fathers
or who do not know whom they are fathered by
2.8 million suicides every year of human beings who find no reason to live with these kinds of social problems inside of their own boundaries inside of their own governments and their own institutions. How can they
bring peace to the world?
It doesn't make sense.
Allah subhanho wa Taala reminds you and me that whatever good happens, it is from Allah subhanho wa Taala and if something else happens, this is
From our own hands.
Allah subhanho wa Taala he has ordered you and I to enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong.
And when we cease to do that, we don't enjoin the ride, we don't enjoy enjoying it, we don't enjoy on the right we don't forbid the wrong then Allah subhanho wa Taala promise that he will visit us a calamity from himself.
when the calamity happens, or you are punished, and the receiver comes upon you, and you call upon Allah, He will not answer.
What do the Muslims of today expect?
The character of the Muslim is the most important part of the Muslim,
not what he or she says, not only what he or she wears,
not where they come from, or who their mother or father or grandfather, not the country they live in, or for that matter, if they live next to the Kaaba is not important at all.
It is the character because the character is the actual fruit.
And we can remember, on the occasion, when the Prophet salallahu alayhi wasalam, invited his companions to make a sacrifice in the way of Allah subhana wa Tada.
And the Armada, called Bob,
he brought half of his wealth.
And he considered this to have been
a major sacrifice.
And he was very proud of that.
But when aboubaker de la and came abubaker
he brought all of his wealth.
And when the profits on the long line and some asked abubaker
what he had left for his family, what was the response of abubaker odilon. He said, Allahu Allah, Allah,
Allah and His Messenger messengers a lot of sense. And it was by the suggestion of the order of the prophets have lost them that Abu Bakr took back some of his wealth for his family.
And this is why the Prophet sallallahu Sallam
that there was no one from among the Muslims,
who displayed his loyalty to a lot of his messengers, civilize them similar to that of Abu Bakar.
So Allah subhanho wa Taala. He said, yes, definitely, who, who is better, who is more excellent
than the one that calls towards the loss of power dialer, not just calling, not just shouting, not just arguing.
While I'm in authority, but they are acting upon what they are calling, they are setting a precedent for what they are calling to.
They have established a behavior, a paradigm and example to what they are calling to. And they openly say, announce a Muslim.
We're oceans and rivers meet, does the ocean take over the river? It doesn't, although the ocean might be five times six times, eight times 10 times larger than a river.
And, you know, if you took two bodies of water,
and you put a funnel in between them,
what would happen the larger body would absorb the smaller body but today,
but in the case of the ocean, in the river, it doesn't happen because a LA City put a bus up so they do not overcome each other. And one of our
Jacques Cousteau who passed away now he was a marine biologist.
He was able to film
under the ocean, where the rivers meet the ocean. And the river meets the ocean and the ocean meets the river and they go back.
They meet and they go back. So therefore, the rivers returned back to itself and the ocean returns back to itself. They do not overcome each other. How did the Prophet know that?
Islam has five fundamental pillars, the first of which is to bear witness that there is none of your worship except Almighty God, consistent with
the first question
given to Moses, consistent with
the first commandment that Jesus Christ also said, is the greatest of the commandments. Here yo Israel, the Lord thy God is one. Absolutely one, not the number one.
Not the number one that could be divided into 123
not the number one that could be multiplied.
But absolutely born, having no one besides no other God Besides, he, O Israel, the Lord, that God is one. And that's your love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and all that mind and all thy soul, and thou shalt not worship anyone except the Lord thy God, no bow down to any graven images in the heavens of the earth or the sea below.
Such said Moses, and said confirm Jesus Christ, and such says the Quran.
This is what we bear witness. And this is the first pillar of Islam and the most important
if war erupts in Iraq, more than 3000 missiles will be rained upon Iraq in the course of 66 hours, and more than a half a million people will be killed.
Can you tell me
how the lives of a half a million people
are equal to a leader Saddam Hussein, if America was able to go into South America and pull out what was the guy's name general
America was selling drugs with Noriega, but then Noriega flipped on them.
So they went in and took this man from his country, brought them out and put them in jail for life in their country. So why don't just go into Iraq and pull out saddam? No, they need to go into Iraq.
Why? Because you will find that in a matter of six months after the war, the prices in the oil will go down. And as we speak, right now, there are 27 mega companies, mega companies who are bidding for contracts for the reconstruction of Iraq, what does have to do with Saddam Hussein, and democracy.
If a man
had to get pregnant and have a baby, he would die.
And then on top of that, if he had to look forward to taking care of that child for the next
10 1520 years, and sometime the mother, she's taking care of a grown child,
men who still live with their mothers,
you couldn't do it.
And still, she's taking care of herself.
She's taking care of her husband.
Male loss upon the reward those sisters
and their law cover their false
Milan law cause the husbands and brothers and sons to appreciate them, because they are the goodly trees that bear the goodly fruit, Allah subhanaw taala mentioned in the Quran,
the Messenger of Allah sallallahu Sallam he made brotherhood, very sacred, very important is the whole basis of the Muslim society brotherhood. And when there's no brotherhood, believe it, there is no substance among the Muslims.
The first principle and characteristics of dow is that the die has to have knowledge.
Not just ambition.
Not just emotional drive, and not just a reaction to some insult that somebody has said, and not just a feeling to want to give down because you know, it's an obligation. All those things are good, and it's all necessary. But without knowledge, what are you gonna do, but always show your composure and your willingness to talk to anybody? Because why?
You put your trust in Allah subhanaw taala from the very beginning, the Messenger of Allah is awesome. He didn't have all the answers, but he put his trust upon law a law says to him for turaco Allah in kuntum
Moe says that
