I would like to introduce brother
who is representing the Islamic education foundation.
going to participate. And he's going to meet some of the verses from the Hollywood our narrative, which Mr. faladi se, is going to translate into English during the lecture.
Right to cover the topic, what is the purpose of life? What is the purpose of life? And what do you know about
what's the purpose of life and what do you know about Islam
at the end of the lecture, you may ask some questions and we can make a dialogue with other colleagues.
Before he starts, we would like you to know that rubber codesin is an American citizen is from the USA
and the raising them for acceptance some years ago,
and he would like to talk to you about things which affected him and really
pushed him to him to accept Islam is going to suck at the same topic.
So, as I told you, at the end of the lecture, inshallah, you will have the opportunity to ask questions and to take the answers from him.
he will start talking about a topic
coming in from the logline.
It was Harvey was what he was
Salam, alaikum, warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
respected Muslim Brothers, and yet,
as my brother,
listen to you,
I am here tonight.
And feeling very honored
to have this opportunity
to address you on this topic.
And I want to say that
this is not a lecture.
I don't think that I'm prepared to lecture.
But it's sort of
advice to myself even because I see myself sitting in these chairs in front of me.
Just a few days ago, a few years ago, just a little while ago, I was sitting right there, when you are
15, Christian, non Muslim,
whatever nationality doesn't matter.
A human being that was not aware
And at that particular time did not really understand
the purpose of life.
So with that note, I would request you
to think of what I'm saying to you just as information and as advice, not a lecture
information which I wish to share with you.
It may seem a bit expensive.
But when you consider the human brain and the amount of information, or the capacity of the human brain, and the amount of information that it can store, that it can decipher. In a few pages of information tonight, I'm sure it will not
It is my responsibility to address the topics of our discussion tonight.
What is the purpose of
And also ask the question, What do you know about Islam?
I mean, what do you really know about Islam? Not what you heard about Islam? Not what you see in the action of some Muslims. But what do you know about Islam?
I am honored to have this opportunity and I would like to begin
By saying that all of you have an equal responsibility.
And that responsibility is to listen, with an open heart and an open mind.
In a world filled with prejudice and cultural conditioning,
it is very hard to find people that are able to take a moment to think,
to think about life objectively.
And try to arrive at the truth about this world and the real purpose of our life.
Unfortunately, when you ask most people the question, what is the purpose of our life?
Such a fundamental and important question.
They will not tell you what they have concluded through observation or analytical reasoning. Rather, in most cases, they will simply tell you what someone else said.
Or they will tell you what is commonly presumed by others. What my father said the purpose of life is what the Minister of my church says, the purpose of life is what my teachers who said what my friend said,
If I asked anyone about the purpose of Ed, see, why do we eat?
Everyone will say, in more one word or another, why poor nutrition?
Because nutrition sustains life.
If I ask anyone why they work,
they will say, because it's a necessity, in order to support themselves, and to provide the needs of their family.
If I ask anyone, why they sleep, why they wash, why they dress, etc, they will answer.
This is a common necessity for all human beings.
We can follow this line of questioning with 100 questions and receive the same or similar answers, from anyone in any language in any place in the world. Simple.
Then I asked you the question, why is it that when we ask the question, what is the goal and the purpose of life, that we get so many different answers?
That's because people are confused, they don't really know.
They're stumbling in the dark.
And rather than to say, I don't know, they just offered any answer that they've been programmed to answer. Well, think about it tonight.
is our purpose in this world, simply to eat, sleep, work, acquire some material things and enjoy ourselves. Is this our purpose?
Why are we born? What is the object of our existence? And what is the wisdom behind the creation of man and this tremendous universe?
Think about that question.
Some persons argue that there is no truth of any divine origin. There's no proof that there's a God. There's no proof that this universe
has come about to any divine purpose. There are people who argue this way.
And they say that perhaps this world came about by chance.
A big bang in this whole great world, with all its orchestration just came together.
And they argue that life doesn't have any definite purpose, and that
there's nothing that can be proven through either logic or science, that there's a god or purpose or any divine reason behind this world.
Here I would like to mention a few verses from the Quran
that addresses this subject. And I'd like you to listen for us to be out of it because the Arabic is a medicine. While you're listening, you're getting the medicine, after that, offer the transliteration
the protection of the law,
belongs in the dominion of the heavens and the earth. And the law has power
in the creation of the heavens and the earth, and in the alternation of the night and the day,
there are indeed signs for men of understanding.
have a lot, candy sitting and lying down in your side, and they contemplate the wonders of the creation in the heavens and the earth, with the laws, not for any foolish purpose
has created all of this girl disease give us salvation from the penalty of the helpline.
versus a law has mentioned very clearly to us,
by joining our attention
to the creation of ourselves,
the different touches of the human body, the different attitudes that the human psychology, he tells our attention to the heavens,
the alternation of the night, and the day, the firmament, the sound, the cancellation.
And then he says to us, he has not created all of this for any foolish purpose. Because when you see the design of it, you know that the design of it is very powerful and very precise. And something very powerful and very precise, that is beyond your own calculation and imagination
cannot be just thrown together.
If you took
and numbered them one to 10,
all of the different colors, and you put them inside of a bag and ship today. And then holding your eyes inside that bag, and I told you pull out model number one, and then pull out model number two.
Model number three.
What's the chance of you're putting out those 10 models in order? Do you know the chances are 26 million to one?
So what's the chances of the heavens and the earth being thrown in a big bang? And orchestrated like they are?
What's the chance of that
might be respected? Then
we'd have to ask ourselves
a further question.
When you see a bridge, a building or an automobile, you got to medically consider the person or the company that constructed it.
When you see an airplane, a rocket, a satellite, or a large ship, you also think about how incredible of a vehicle that it is.
When you see a nuclear plant, an orbiting space station, a super International Airport, like what exists here in this country, you have to be thoroughly impressed with the engineering dynamics that are involved.
These are just things that are manufactured by humans, manufactured by human beings.
When What about the human body?
With its massive and intricate control systems? Think about it.
Think about the brain.
how it functions, how it analyzes information, retrieving information, distinguishes and categorizing information in a millionth of a second and does it constantly think about the brain for moments.
The brain that made the automobile the rocket ship, the boats and so on. So think about the brain.
Think about the heart How it can
continuously for 60 or 70 years in taking and discharging blood throughout the body, and maintain that steady precision throughout the life of that person. Think about
think about the children, what kinds of function
that they carry,
the purifying instrument of the body, which performs hundreds of chemical analysis simultaneously, and also controls the level of activity in the content of the body. And it does this automatically.
Think about your eyes.
The human camera that adjusts, focus, interpret, evaluate, applies color, automatically, the natural reception and adjustment to light and distance automatic.
Think about it.
Who created that?
Who has measured that? Who planned that? And who regulates that?
human beings themselves?
What about this universe? Think about this.
is one planet in our solar system. And our solar system is one of the systems in the Milky Way. And the Milky Way is one of the constellations in this galaxy. And there are millions of galaxies like the Milky Way. Think about that. And they're all in order. They're all precise. They're not colliding with each other, they're not conflicting with each other, and they are swimming along and an orbit that has been set for them, as human beings set into motion. And our human beings maintain that decision. No, of course, you
think about the ocean, the fish, you can say the bird, the plant bacteria, the chemical elements that have not been discovered and cannot be detected, even with the most sophisticated estimate. That is one of them has a law that they follow.
With all of this synchronization, balance, harmony, variation, design, maintenance, operation and infinite numeration. Did it happen by chance?
do these things function perpetually and perfectly, also by chance?
And do they keep on reproducing themselves and maintain themselves also by chance?
No, of course,
that would be totally illogical and foolish to think. And then believe.
It would indicate that however that came to be that is totally outside of the realm of human capabilities.
the almighty power of
the Creator who has the knowledge, to design to proportion, who created all of this, and is responsible for maintaining all of this is the only one that is deserving of praise and gratitude.
If I gave each one of you $100, for no reason, just for coming up with at least a thank you. Note about your eyes, your kidney, your brain, your life, your birth your children. What about that? Who gave you that? Is he not worthy of praise and thank?
Is he not worthy of your worship, and your recognition?
My brothers, that in a nutshell is the purpose and the goal of this life.
Allah subhanho wa Taala said to us in the Quran,
I have not created the jinn,
nor the human beings for any other purpose except to worship me.
So our purpose in this life is to recognize the Creator,
to be grateful to the Creator,
to worship the Creator, to surrender ourselves to the creator and to obey the laws that he has determined
in a nutshell that we worship. This is our purpose on this life. And whatever we do in the course of that worship,
that system is the drinking, the drinking, the working the join between the life and the death.
All of this is just consequential but we have been created for worship. That's the purpose of our life.
I don't think that
Anyone who is scientific or analytical, don't have much argument with that person. They may have some other ulterior purpose within themselves. But that's something they have to deal with between themselves and oh my god.
Let's go to the second half of our topic.
Yep. Do you know about Islam?
Not what you heard about Islam,
not what you have seen in the action of Muslims, because there's a difference between Islam and Muslims.
There's a difference between
a man and a father,
a man who has children,
he is the father.
But father is your responsibility.
If a man does not fulfill those responsibilities, he is not natural, he is not necessarily a good father.
This man is a rule and an order.
If a Muslim does not fulfill these rules and orders, he is not a good Muslim. So you cannot compare this lamb.
We hear the terms Islam and Muslims quite often.
And we read about Islam and Muslims in the periodical textbooks of colleges and universities.
We hear and we see a lot of inaccurate, misleading and purposeful misinformation
through the media.
And I have to admit that some of this misinformation and misrepresentation has been perpetuated by Muslims themselves.
one out of every five cases in this world of some 5 billion people is a Muslim.
one out of five people in this world is a Muslim.
This is a statistic that you can verify in the encyclopedia or the almanac or any other sources that you'd like to look at.
How is it that one out of five people in this world is a Muslim?
That we don't know something about the facts about Islam? If I told you that one out of five people in this world was Chinese, which is the fact is 1 billion Chinese in the world, one out of five people is Chinese. But we know the geographical, the social, economical, the political, the philosophical, the historical factors about China, and
how can we
29 nations, and some, say 47 nations?
What is it that joins these nations this universal
configuration into a common fraternity? What makes a brother in Saudi Arabia, my brother, and I'm from America, and make this product from Pakistan, my brother, and this another brother from Indonesia, my brother and from Africa, my brother, and another one from Thailand, my brother, and from China, from Spain, and from Russia, and so forth, what makes him my brother, we have different cultural, psychological background.
What is it about Islam that automatically embraces us and joins us together as a brotherhood?
What are the accurate characteristics of this misunderstood way of life that is followed by the great part of humanity.
I will try to provide you with some facts. But in addition to this, as I mentioned to you before, it is necessary for you
to be open minded and open hearted because if I turned the glass upside down and poured water on it, I'll never get a glass of water. You have to do like cider.
Facts alone do not need understanding, but rather a combination of talent, ambition, and the ability to appreciate and accept the truth. When you hear
the word, surrender, submission, and obedience to when the submission and obedience to the law of Almighty God. You can say Allah,
you can say the Creator, you can say the supreme god, the Supreme Court, the all wise all of those are his name, we say Allah, because in Arabic, there is no other expression. This expression alone cannot be applied to any creative
Other words that we use for all mighty people applied to
the almighty dollar?
Oh, I love my wife, she is tough, or he's the greatest? No, no, no, no. But the words I love, to only be applied to the one who has created all of this that we have.
From this point, I'm going to use the word Allah. And you know whom I'm speaking about.
The word Islam is derived from the root element, it means to be active or to have security. Therefore, a Muslim is a person, that surrender, submit, and obeys to the law of Almighty God, and through this submission, obtain peace and security for themselves.
We can immediately see that by such a definition, the Arabic word Islam describes the same manner and behavior of all the well known and respected prophets and messengers of Almighty God.
Abraham, Moses, David, Solomon,
it My name, Jacob, john the baptist, Sulayman, Jesus, the son of Mary, and Muhammad, peace be upon him and all of them.
All of these men, these prophets and messengers came from the same Almighty God with the same message with the same chain of transmission. And they said one thing, obey God was the Almighty God and fulfill the purpose of life, and do good action, and you will be rewarded with another life.
Don't make it more than that. That Oh, they said, regardless of what language and what time, whom they came to, that's all they say.
If you read the scriptures carefully,
without your own interpretation, or somebody else's addition, or fabrication, you will find that this was the simple message of all those prophets who confirm one another.
Not one of those prophets ever say I am God?
Yes, it means
you don't have to think. Because you will find that you have
not the Bible Not at all, not the old or the New Testament, not the sounds of Beloved, you will not find it in any book.
You will not find it from the speech of any prophet
their home tonight, and palm through all the pages of your Bible. And I guarantee you, you will not find it one. Anyway.
Where'd this come from?
That's something else that you have to investigate. And in another study, we can set that straight very easily for you. History has a way of turning over every stone.
We can immediately see that by such a definition, the Arabic word describes what all the prophets did. They all came into the building selves to God, surrender themselves to God, call the people to God and ask the people and insisted upon the people to do the of righteousness.
Pretend to matter commandments of Moses, what was that? The piece of Abraham? What was that? The psalms of David, what was that? The proverbs of Solomon? What did he say? The gospel of Jesus Christ? What did he say that the john the baptist say?
What did Muhammad
peace be upon? What did he say?
When I was in LA,
and they were all nothing except
to allow his sincere towards him.
Was it good enough?
This is the original message.
By the same token, it would also be appropriate here to consider those prophets and messengers as Muslims because
think about the Arabic terminology, don't think about how we address something about Saudi Arabia or Egypt. Now, think about the word Muslim, he he who surrenders himself to Almighty God and obeying the laws of Almighty God. In that case, whether naturally or or in a dialectical manner, everything that surrenders to the law of Almighty God is a Muslim. So when a child comes out of the womb of his mother at the time that God is
Muslim, when the sun goes around in its orbit, what is it it's it was
When the moon goes around the sun, what is it a Muslim, the law of gravity? What is it? Muslim law, everything that's submitted to Almighty God is a Muslim. Therefore, when we want to obey Almighty God,
Jesus Christ was a Muslim, his mother is black mother was a Muslim, Abraham with a Muslim, a Muslim, all the prophets were Muslim, but they came to the people and they spoke different languages
spoken out of it. And so in the Arabic language submit and cylinder is Muslim is the one who submitted his most
epic traffic and message of Almighty God brought the very same and fundamental message wishing Almighty God and be sincere towards him.
If we examine the methods of each of the well known topics, we can easily conclude this.
Where there is a conflict, it is a result of both associated fabrications exaggerations, personalized interpretations of allergic writings, historians, scholars and individuals. For instance, let me point something out.
I looked at
them and I didn't understand.
throughout the Old Testament, God has always referred to as one of the master and Lord and King of the Universe, and that in the First Amendment given to Moses, he did not allow anybody to worship any graven images, or to bow down to anything in the heavens on Earth, or to see below, he never allowed them all the prophets that he was more than that he was the Almighty God. throughout the Old Testament, this is completely repeated. And obviously, then all of a sudden, we got four testimonies. The four gospels called Matthew, Mark, Luke, and john,
Luke, john, who,
four different gospels that were written for us apart. And none of these men who did not collaborate with each other, none of them got their last name.
If I gave you a check for your pay this month,
and I wrote my first name on check and tell you to take it to the bank, would you accept that check? No, you wouldn't do it, the policeman stops you with your apartment, you only had your first name you got accepted?
Could you get a passport with your first name? Did your mother and father only give you one day? Where in the history of man is accepted as a documentation? Where no way except?
And how could you base your faith upon four gospels that are written by four men that didn't seem to know that I
didn't have to go for that was
written by a man who was an apostate who killed us in Tajikistan and then said that he had a vision for Jesus. And he was commissioned as an apostle of Jesus. If I told you that Hitler after he killed all the Jews,
then the self decided that he wants to be safe v net price oboes is on the path and he became a Jew, and he wrote 15 books and added them to the Torah would this be acceptable to do
without a last name, and 15 other books written by another man, and this is the first time that God has called a man and the first time that God has called three and the first time God has given a son.
He attended the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him did not bring a new religion, or way of life, as some people claim on the contrary,
the prophet may allow to support him confirm the life message of all the previous topic and messages, both through his personal conduct and through the divine revelation that he received from the Almighty.
The Sacred Scripture that we allow to perform, God is called output on what
it means that which is recited because Muhammad Allah says upon him, he did not write the Quran. He did not offer the Quran. Nobody came and helped him to write the Quran or to offer the Quran and nobody collaborated with him.
The angel gabriel recited to him and Almighty God is taught is a sceptical of that just like the satellite dish.
Is the receptive of wave and gives you the TV finish. The Prophet Muhammad. Peace be upon him heart was a receptacle of Revelation and we have this for
15 years without the change of a diet
in the world that you know have been preserved and deployed, revered without the teasing, even update got
only the Quran
don't take my word for it.
Go to the library and read the Encyclopedia Britannica or the world encyclopedia or the americanas encyclopedia or any other universal Encyclopedia of the world that is not written by Muslim, read what it says about the Koran and Muhammad.
Ali was no non Muslim said about the Quran, Islam and Mohammed.
Bin, you will accept that what I'm saying is universally documented.
That Mohammed niloticus upon is the most profound individuals in the history of humanity.
That the Quran is the most incredible, the most profound piece of literature in the annals of history.
That the Islamic way of life is categorized and so precise and dynamic has never changed. We
take the scripture that Muhammad similasan receive is called the Quran.
And the prophets and messengers, they also received a scripture
and interpret all these prophets, the Scripture, their story, the principle of their mission is mentioned with profound detail with Muhammad.
Did he meet him and talk with them and talk with them and collaborate with him to write their biographies? No, of course you do.
In the Quran,
is referred to as the messenger of Almighty God and the seal of the previous Prophet, which is the limit of his role as a human being. Look, we do not
we are not the hamedan.
We have not the right to take the name of Mohammed, Mohammed.
No, there are people who have followed Moses, they were not.
The people who thought Jake was not Jacobite are people who follow Abraham abrahamian or Debian? No, no, no. So how do people call themselves Christian crisis and call himself a Christian? How do people call themselves Christian? Christ said that whatever he received from Almighty God was the order God wasn't raised is what he said. That's what he did. So how we call ourselves Christians, we have to be Christ like, and what was Christ right. He was a servant of Almighty God, that he should be servants of Almighty God.
As the final scripture and divine revelation that could be very clear and concise to this day have I protected your religion and completed my paper and chose it the family the complete way of life. So throughput on the word is king,
the word Islam, the team in the Quran, because when the building is complete, you call it a house.
When the car is on the assembly line, it is not an automobile
assembly will have been completed it has been certified it has been given it is now an automobile. With a slam was completed as a revelation as a book as an example for the Prophet Muhammad from
him became Islam. It became a complete way of life, Jesus man.
Not a new God, not a new revelation, but only the name.
Another distinction to keep in mind is that
unlike his predecessors, he did not come to the out of his own people
it is not COVID Yes, Mohammed, the son of Abdullah TP upon he was born in Mecca, a city in the Arabian Peninsula and suddenly he wasn't
consequences of the choice of the Almighty.
Additionally, the Quran was revealed in the Arabic language to protect it to make it pure and clear and precise.

as the one giving bringing their carry
most of the human beings, they simply don't know
the finality and count of the profits and messages before you. And since we are making reference to the Quran and support our presentation,
we should give some background information on the Quran itself. First of all, the Quran makes the claim that it is the product of divine revelation that is, it was sent down from the Almighty God to
in who are in law, what
he is not speaking from himself, his own ideas for his own ambition, or his own emotion and feelings.
But this is a revelation,
we can be revealed to him.
Therefore, if we are to convince you or anyone else, of the authenticity of the Quran, we must prove one, that it was impossible for Mohammed to manufacture such a book.
Secondly, we must prove that it was equally impossible for any human agency to have created that.
Certainly, we must prove that it was equally impossible for any human agency to have created. Let us
that was clinging to the wall of the womb?
How does he know that his embryo started out as a clot healing and cleaning to the wall of the uterus of the mother? Did he have a telescope? Do you have a sister? So he has some kind of
knowledge when it was just discovered 47 years ago?
How did we know that the oceans have a barrier between them to separate the salt and the freshwater?
How did he know?
How you know that the sun and the moon and the planets are all sitting in an orbit that has been ordered to them? How do you know that?
And on and on and on? How does he know that when these things have just been discovered
the sophistication of what you and I know
how good Mohammed 50 upon 1500 years ago,
an educated Shepherd, a man
a man who was educated could not read or write How could he say something like this? How can he produce something
to do something
on a ship,
who lived 15 centuries ago make such a clear and astounding descriptions that were recently discovered in this half of the 20th century. Also, if this is not enough, let me mention to you that the Quran has 114 chapters, over 6000 verses. And there were hundreds of people in the time of the Prophet Mohammed
who memorize this
was Jesus. How did that happen?
Did anyone memorize the gospel?
memorize the Torah, the sound, the sound, the Old Testament, the New Testament, nobody, not even the Pope.
But Muslims today
This entire book,
how many Christians
memorize the Bible?
The whole Bible never met a Christian who even knew what was the whole Bible, because the Christians themselves have over 700 different denominations. And there are approximately nine different versions of the Bible for different books and different versions, different amounts of verses and different amounts of chapters.
I am a person who was a Christian, a person who found out these things through my own investigation, a person who is now sharing this information for you, or returning some rocks for you to look under.
finally, suppose I told you
that this book had been universally preserved,
without the slightest alteration of time. And
if all of this is true, what I'm saying if it is all true, would you agree that this book is quite profound? And you need to say the least?
Would you be honest enough to say that,
of course you will.
And you have
within yourself, you have to come to that conclusion.
Many other non Muslims came to the same conclusion.
Benjamin Franklin, Thomas Jefferson,
many, many, on on and on, it came to the same conclusion, whether they accepted Islam or not.
There's no other literature in the world that has this kind of profound as to put on as a source of wisdom and healing and direction.
Now that we have settled the issue of the authenticity of the Quran, let us turn to another subject matter.
The basic themes of the Quran, the Supreme oneness of Almighty God, which includes His
attributes, the relationship between the Almighty and his future, and how men should maintain that relationship, the continuity of prophets and messages, their lives, their messages, and their overall mission, his insistence upon following the final and universal example, Mohammed, the peace and blessings be upon him the seal of the prophets and messages, reminding the human beings of the shortness of this life and calling them towards eternity of this life, calling them towards eternity of the life after life, here after, after
you after you leave here, you're going somewhere, I mean tonight, but after you die, and you leave here, you're going somewhere, whether you accept it or know about it, you're going there, and you are responsible, because you have been told even if you have rejected
the purpose of this life is not for you to sit here and do nothing and have no effect. Every cause has an effect. And we came into this life for a cause and a purpose. It must.
It must want some sort of effect. You don't go to school to stay there. You don't go to work not to get paid, you don't build a house and don't move into it. You don't get a suit and go for it. You don't grow up as a child and don't become an adult you don't want without affecting others cannot live without expecting to die, you cannot die without the without the expectancy of the brain. You cannot expect that the grave is because that would mean that God has created
and you have not went to school, or work or done or chosen or chosen.
Or came here tonight for fullest purpose. How could you assign to God something less than yourself
and attempt to capture the imagination and faculty of reasoning are unveiled through the lens and duty found upon the oceans and rivers, the trees and plants the bears in the wild and domestic animal, the mountains the battle, the tension of the heaven, the celestial bodies and the universe, the fishes and the aquatic life, the human anatomy and biology for human civilization and history, the description of Paradise and hell the evolution of the human embryo the missing of all the prophets and next
The purpose of life on
the desert, Amanda couldn't read?
How could a man born in the desert and could not read and watch and see how can you expound upon things that he was never exposed to?
The most unique aspect of the Quran, however, is that
you do not have to consider yourself
If you gain weight,
you don't have to throw the food away, do you know go to the tailor and tell him listen.
If you lost some weight, we went to fiber and got a two way
ticket to a teller and said this
was your belief, Your Honor, your your love of Jesus Christ, your attention to God, your worship,
and your dedication to God will change the way you hold on to that.
Will you know that the truth has been revealed to you?
Can you just have to be honest enough to know that you have lost?
my son is my son, my wife is my wife.
you hesitate to bear witness that Almighty God is one and Almighty God is the only one Almighty God is your mother.
Whoa, are you elegant?
Are you then going
to be that God doesn't have some secret that he wants to share with us? Or are you confused?
That's a question that you asked yourself.
If you thought that you would die tonight
and get in front of you was paradise in exactly he was held prior.
And you had the chance to put things take with your country and to put things faith with God and to ask God to accept the best of your deeds. If you had the chance to do that before you die. And you thought that you would die tonight, you would have to bear witness.
You are one of those who would like to do
elbows in other places. How long ago? Was it when he was just a cow running and playing without a tail? How long ago was it was
he gonna die tomorrow?
It's madness to bear witness that Almighty God is God, the only God The only one without your partner.
The plan is to acknowledge existence of the angel who was tasked with the duty of revealing that the revelation to the Prophet,
the nuggets to the Prophet, controlling the wind and the mountain and the ocean and taking the life of God in order to die.
Acknowledging that all the prophets and messengers of Almighty God was with me. And they were all set by Almighty God acknowledging the fact that there will be a final day of judgment for all pinches, acknowledging that all good proposal by Almighty God, acknowledging that there will definitely be a resurrection after death.
