Have you are you wasting your time on social media again? Your brothers and sisters in Islam net from Norway are establishing a masjid a Dawa center. Establishing a masjid to convey the message of Islam is one of the best deeds a Muslim can do. There's a huge need for an annoying Do you know this and I know this, so that makes it even greater. So give generously and Allah azza wa jal give you even more

00:00:33 --> 00:01:09

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah what I can't do How you guys doing? Steven Crowder is a political commentator. From what I understand he's a high school dropout, or a college dropout or something like that he hasn't completed his education. And from time to time he speaks about Islam. I don't know why. I don't know what he thinks he's doing. I don't think he's qualified or trained to speak about these topics. And he speaks about delicate doctrinal elements, theological elements to do with religion of Islam. He mocks Muslim people, he mocks Islam itself, he's done. So in the past, he's never had the audacity or the courageousness. To actually confront a Muslim person. Let's take a

00:01:09 --> 00:01:38

look at what he said in his most recent video and come back and respond in kind. Islam is based on the idea that the blessing of Abraham going down to his you know, oldest son, Isaac, Ishmael was a lie. So you have to believe and this is why you have so much radical anti semitism in across the Muslim world, if you believe that these people carried the books, lied and subverted the text, basically, from Abraham onward, of course, there's going to be some animosity. So it says, Well, every we believe in the Bible, except not everything else. For example, in Islam, this was one thing we talked about recently, where they get really mad, for example, if you draw Muhammad, I'm not

00:01:38 --> 00:02:09

saying you should just go out and troll and draw Muhammad. But what I am saying is, hold on that's more offensive than a religion that says, Jesus is not exactly who he claimed he was right? Muslims believe that Jesus was a prophet, but that he didn't die that the body was replaced. Well, that's sacrilegious to Christians, certainly more so than drawing. Again, we know what Muhammad did, who was basically not attacking Muslims, but it's true. So Steven Crowder, who hitherto shall be referred to as Stephen Canada, because he is a coward for not being able to respond or to face the people who he claims.

00:02:10 --> 00:02:46

Who he is trying to attack with, in this case, Muslim people. He's just speaking to Alex Jones, I didn't know that Alex Jones was an individual who was very aware of Islamic doctrines, but he's speaking to him. And he's making a series of spurious claims. speculations. The first one is a very weird kind of argument in the first place, which is that Muslims believe that the previous dispensation is for us, obviously, their previous dispensation for the Muslim people, which are, let's say, for example, the the revelations handed down to Moses, the revelations handed down to Jesus were changed. And therefore this brings about a kind of hostility that we may have, for that

00:02:46 --> 00:03:19

reason to those groups. That is a very strange kind of argument. Because of course, just like most people who adopt any kind of worldview, ideological position, there are going to be things we agree with Christianity on, and with things we reject. I mean, just like you as a Christian, there's going to be some things you agree with Judaism on and some things which you reject. There's going to be some things which you agree with Islam on some things, would you reject? I mean, the fact is, you believe that the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam, peace and blessings be upon him, is fundamentally disingenuous. I mean, so that's something you reject. And you could say, you can make

00:03:19 --> 00:03:59

the argument, therefore, you become hostile because of it. And of course, your tone is hostile anyway. So I don't really see where this is going. Of course, we believe that the Bible has been corrupt, or corrupted. And of course, there is evidence for that. Bruce Metzger wrote a fantastic masterpiece on this point, the corruption of the Bible. Even Christian scholarship has moved almost completely in that direction. I remember reading called but one of the great scholars of Christianity in the 20th century who practically as a Protestant Evangelical, even though he tenuously kind of aligns with that group considers the book, The New Testament even to be corrupt.

00:03:59 --> 00:04:23

So I don't think this is a big problem. I mean, if if believing that the Bible is corrupt is problematic, then within your own school within Christianity itself, within the whole the house of Christianity, there are people who are going to have the same kind of proclivity or inclination. So that's the first thing is this idea that believing that the books are corrupt somehow is a dangerous belief hub creating, producing kind of hostilities

00:04:25 --> 00:05:00

for the Muslim people. The second thing is you mentioned about well, drawing Muhammad you kind of glossed over that sort of lighter, solemn, you didn't make an argument that I kind of wanted just mention it for some reason. And then mentioned well, you believe we believe as the Muslim people that Jesus Christ is not as you say, who he says he was, who he says he was, according to you, of course we have different sources. We don't believe that the sources that you have a fully reliable, and we don't say that he says that He was God. In fact, you'll you'll seldomly or scarcely find anything except for the, you know the gospel

00:05:00 --> 00:05:39

of John in the writers of the Gospel of John, and especially the synoptic Bible or the synoptic, New Testament, you will not find this emphasized at all the divinity of Jesus Christ, as Christians, bottom and even says that John, the Gospel of John has a quote unquote high Christology and of course, that's something which is once again, understood in the scholarly world of Christianity. What I'm saying here is Jesus Christ, saying that his God himself doesn't appear to be really in the Bible, in very clear terms, him saying that I am God worship, it doesn't clear to be in the Bible. And if you are going to say the Gospel of John has some of those references. Well, the Gospel of

00:05:39 --> 00:05:44

John is a very late reference itself. So the idea that he said that about himself is not something we even

00:05:45 --> 00:06:08

grant you, frankly. But according to us, he didn't say that. And yes, it is sacrilegious for you for us to believe that Jesus wasn't good, but it's also sacrilegious for us, for you to believe that He is God. So the same exact argument applies both ways. If you think about it, in fact, there's a verse and I'm gonna recite the verses and then you can I'm gonna translate them for you. So first of all, Quran says the following.

00:06:10 --> 00:06:14

I will build a human a shade on your gene will call it

00:06:17 --> 00:06:27

luck or the tomb che and it take care do Psalm 28 FL Donald I mean, who is and Shep will outdo

00:06:28 --> 00:06:29

the band who had the

00:06:31 --> 00:06:39

only money well, while my young Buffy little money, I feel that well

00:06:40 --> 00:06:54

that they ascribed or they said that Allah has taken a son, they have come with some preposterous thing, that the heavens and the earth will be split asunder.

00:06:55 --> 00:07:02

As a result of this, what's ahead will and destroyed would be the mountains destroyed would be the mountains

00:07:03 --> 00:07:05

because of such a word

00:07:07 --> 00:07:13

and Dowler Rahmani WELEDA, that they ascribe to other men, the most merciful, a son.

00:07:15 --> 00:08:01

That everything in the heavens in the earth comes to Allah as a slave. This is in the Quran. So it's the ultimate sacrilegious or the ultimate sacrilege to say that Jesus is God, or the Son of God for the Muslim people. But of course, despite that, or not withstanding that fact Muslim people are tolerant of Christians we don't force that upon them, Islam upon them as on the Quran, it says like Rafa Deen, there is no compulsion in religion, chapter two, verse 256. The point is, your arguments really don't hold any weight, I hereby challenge you to a debate and a disco and or discussion or education session. I actually don't know what to call it because, frankly, you're not worthy of a

00:08:01 --> 00:08:40

debate. You are saying that with the greatest of respect, and I don't need to respect you because frankly, you're disrespectful. But you're not worthy of a debate. But if you want to be educated on the topic of Islam, which you've been speaking on for many years, I can teach you the basics. I will do this as a community service for your community and mine. If you're gallant enough and brave enough, accept the challenge of salam alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaatuh the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us to whoever builds a mosque for Allah, Allah were built in a similar house in Jannah. And we know the great reward that will not only be gained but rather will

00:08:40 --> 00:08:54

feel your grave after your death. Whenever someone prays that whenever someone gives shahada in the masjid whenever someone learns something in the masjid, yes, that will be something that you will have no scale
