Bismillah Alhamdulillah Peace be with you start with peace. That's what Islam is all about the way of life that cause you to submit to the one God, the Creator of all that exists to have peace with your creative peace within yourself, then you can have peace with everyone around you. But you got to do what? You got to do a jihad or what? That's right. You had a struggle to do that you got to struggle to submit because it's easy to submit to your lower inclinations, that a lot of times it's not good for you you want to go chase that man or woman outside of marriage You got to do a jihad against that to stop that you might want to other other curse words something that's really should
not be coming out of your mouth you got to do a jihad against that Islam is calling you to do a Jihad Yes, but there's something that's been a tremendous tribute to it is synonymous not is it with terrorism, terrifying people, things blowing up, or the opposite. You're about to learn the truth here on the deen show with my next guest. We got a surprise for you. Don't go nowhere. This is the theme.
This is the
this is the
Salam Alaikum Peace be with you. While llegamos Salam rahmatullah wa barakato peace be unto you too. Thank you for joining us. Now let me tell you something. There are many people that have this title. I think you're qualified because other people they use the same title so but you prefer not to be called by shake or Mulana or Mufti? You got the knowledge you prefer just to be called brother in bronze? I'm gonna call your brother in Ron. Mashallah. Yeah, brother, and I prefer being called as the student for Islam and comparative religion. I think that's the greatest honor to be a student of knowledge forever. Mashallah. Mashallah, Mashallah Gar golden. And we started with peace, I started
to show a peace. Is it true that Jesus and all the prophets, they also started their greetings with this when they greeted each other with egos. If you read the Bible, you will find that when Jesus, he greets his disciples, He says, A Shalom aleichem and that is a happy connotation, very close to the Islamic Arabic term Assalamu alaikum, which means May peace be unto all of you, Mashallah, and that's very deep. And we want peace, first and foremost, with the Creator of the heavens and earth. Very true. So we can have peace within ourselves, because a lot of people aren't on xenix. They're restless, and they're nervous, because they don't have that peace. So this show is about promoting
peace people to come to this realization that there is a purpose in life. And the best one to tell you is the creator that has, so then you can have, and you could be living purpose and you can have peace. But a lot of times you know what, what distracts people is the desire, the desire now to want this and want that things that aren't good for you drugs, alcohol, gambling, all the bad things. So you got to do a jihad against these things. But now people have taken his beautiful word jihad, and you're scaring people with it. They think jihad is synonymous with terrorism killing innocent babies kin and ism people. So you're here on the show, to clear up the fog to clear up the false fallacies
and misconceptions and explain to us really, what is Jihad does not look like hamdulillah heretic Rabbil alameen wa Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah, Karim, Allah Allah He was happy here in altavilla. He mentioned on the regime. Yeah, you Allah, Xena ormolu ficil Macaca mulatta. terbuka, Swati shaitan in Oulu mubin rubbish. cradley andreeva searly Omri. Well, hello, Melissa Nia Holly, respected by Eddie, and all my dear viewers, I once again welcome all of you with Islamic greetings As salam o Alaikum, warahmatullahi wabarakatuh, meaning, may the peace, mercy and blessings of Almighty God Allah subhanaw taala be on all of you. Mashallah, you have asked a very important
question on a very important subject. In the modern scenario. The Arabic word jihad is unfortunately being misunderstood by a lot of people being mis represented by a certain section of the media worldwide. It's being mistaken, specially by a large section of the non Muslim society, considering Jihad as a holy war.
war against the non Muslims. This is very unfortunate. See, there is a saying there is a popular saying in English. It's not the activeness of the rascals that spoils the society. It's the in activeness of the good people that spoils it. Say that again. It's not the activeness of the rascals rascals like mischief maker mischief maker. Yeah. It's not the activeness of these mystery mongers that spoils the society. It's the effectiveness of the good people like us, the Muslims, who aren't inviting the non Muslims to Islam, not educating them about the right concept of Islam. And that is causing all the problems in the world today. So it's very important that we need to educate the
people around us we need to go out not isolate ourselves from others. And it's time when this word has become a synonym to terrorism. It becomes the duty of every one of us to go out to our non Muslim brothers and sisters, and educate them. That jihad is something that even you do, every human being does jihad.
You see, the Arabic word jihad is derived from two root words Giada and jihad.
It means to try strive for something and to strive against something.
A student, when he is preparing for his exams, he's doing jihad. He is striving for scoring good marks a student in school. Of course, when a student prepares for the exams, he is doing jihad, he is striving for scoring big marks. And a policeman, when he is trying to catch a culprit when he is trying to arrest a criminal, when he's trying to maintain the law and order, the policeman is doing jihad against a criminal. So if you say the Arabic word Jihad would literally mean to strive for something, or to strive against something, as far as Islam is concerned, when it comes with Islamic connotation in it as an Islamic terminology, the Arabic word Jihad simply means to strive for all
that Allah commanded, as good, the Almighty God commanded as good to the entire human humanity. And it means to strive against all which Allah considered as evil for the human beings. And of course, the Almighty God, being our Creator, has the best right, to dictate terms to the man, what he has to do, and what he hasn't required to do what he should not do. So that is very important. So jihad is a pure concept of striving for something good, and striving against that is evil, and every good is beneficial to the mankind, and every evil at one stage of your life will destroy the human population. So that is, what is jihad. And we truly need to understand it in a little broader, or in
a little more classified perspective. So that is how I would put the word Jihad as an explanation Initially, I think, look, what you just said is brilliant. It's the fact it's not fiction. And you define this word just by defining the word jihad. And you gave a wonderful, eloquent example about a student doing jihad not to cut school not to go ahead and be with bad influences being on time to class A jihad, it's a struggle in the police man against the criminal doing jihad. Beautiful. There's one thing also I want to before we go to break, there's a lot of times I don't let people get away with this. I'm not going to let you have any special exceptions. You said something in
Arabic. In the beginning, we got a lot of non Muslim people who everyone has a potential to submit to the one guy, many have come to LA watching the show. So just don't think you just worked a spell on him? Because there's something in Arabic. What did you say? Yeah, I just began, when I said Al hamdu, lillahi Rabbil aalameen. It would mean all praises or for Allah, the creator of the universe, the cherisher of the universe, but Salatu was Salam ala rasulillah Hill Kareem, may the peace and salutations be on the Beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam well, Allah Allah He and on his family was Hobie and all his Muslim companions, the male and female Muslim companions, that is the
Sahaba cram for the Allahu taala and was mine and then I recited an ayat of the Quran from Surah Baqarah surah number two at number 208 where Allah subhanaw taala reminds the Muslims Yeah, you're Latina Armand. otaku Cilmi Kapha oh you who claim you are Muslims enter into Islam completely and perfectly not just on Ramadan? Yeah, not just in Ramadan, not just by claiming not just a mouth lip service. Yeah, but do it in actions because if you do it in action, then the peace will spread then the people will understand Okay, this is a religion of pace. So that is what I recited or you would believe enter into Islam wholeheartedly and do not follow the footsteps of shaitan For verily it is
an open enemy unto you. That's the that was the message I gave in Arabic from Surah Baqarah surah number two ad
Number 208 is what a beautiful beautiful so he didn't work No, no, no, no I made a lot of masala Salam he made a supplication praise God beautiful supplication you know it says rubbish rollin sorry, Overlord, open our breath for us open my best for me and that made me a person of courage. expand my breasts with knowledge by assembly memory and make the task with which I am here easy for me while melissani remove any impediment in my speech, any obstruction in my speech, to convey the truth
and open the minds of my listeners and the viewers to understand the message and passing on to them. Amazing Amazing you learned so much here on the D show and God willing to learn some more don't go nowhere. I solo on iOS, otherwise solo he
would go to my room lock the door prostrate and cry. Thank God, you know me better than myself. Show me the right way. And I will not look I will leave everything behind.
A lot of that greater and greater
Back here on the D show with brother imraan hum de la praise to the Creator of the heavens and earth that's on us here with your presence. Thank you for finding time to be with us on the deen show. We're talking about jihad. So you also mentioned people say Jihad and then they put next to it holy war Jihad a holy war? Absolutely a very important question and a very major misunderstanding that was propagated by the orientalist against Islam. You'd be wondering that according to the Times Magazine, a very popular magazine in the US, dated 16th apprai. In 1979. It states that in 150 years alone, that is between 1800 Christian era to 1950 to 60,000 books were written against Islam
60,000 60,000. And if you calculate it by the number of days in this 150 years, it would be more than one book being written per day against Islam. And sometimes I say to some people back in my public talks, I say if that would have happened with any other Islam on the world, in the world, that isn't would have become a museum piece by now. You will be vanished. Yeah, I mean, if the children would ask what was this you will have to take them to the museum to show but it's the truth from Allah that is still making Islam stand. And these 60,000 books I think the Muslims would be wondering 60,000 books and how do we answer them? Swan and lashay one book the Quran is enough to
answer them. And you ask very important question about holy war. See the the Arabic translation for holy war will be herbal mocha DISA. And this word herbal Medusa does not occur in the entire Quran for one single time. Not a single place in the entire Quran. The word herbal Maha Dasa has been used, not even in one authentic teaching of Prophet Muhammad. Islam has his word holy word being used. In fact, if you look the history of the word, or the etymology of this word, it was quite In fact, for the crusades, the crusades, yes. So nothing to do with Islam absolutely horrible, or holy war has nothing to do with Islam at all. Not a single time is it used in the Quran are the authentic
teachings of Prophet moslem Amazing, amazing facts, not fiction? Yeah, this is a fact. Yeah, of course. But now someone says you know what, okay. Okay, you know, struggling you know, at school, this is good. And, you know, to go ahead and for the police offer examples, example you gave, but look, they say, you know, look at Osama bin Laden and look at the World Trade Centers. What about this? They said they did a jihad, what do you got to say about that Swan logic? This is this, I think, the September 911 incident. And all that is happening after September 11. has brought the entire Muslim woman on the backfoot. But always we should be optimistic. There are a few things,
which very honestly, everyone needs to understand.
Every anti christian, every non Christian is not an anti christian. Every non Jew is not an anti Jew. Every non American is not an anti American. I have come to this country. This is the second time I'm visiting this country. I love America. It's a beautiful place. The people are wonderful. Yeah. It's lovely to interact with them the reception they give to whatever you speak to them, the way they host you as a guest. It's wonderful. So but I'm not an American. I'm a non American, but I'm not an anti American.
I'm a non British but I'm not an anti British. Similarly, it is very important. It is very important that
Every person who is a non Muslim should understand that when he says or when she says he or she is a non Muslim, the Muslim never perceives every non Muslim as anti Islamic. We never say that. The Quran never says that. Hey this devil says that if you read the Quran, you will find Allah subhanaw taala commending jihad in several places in the Quran. If you read Surah Baqarah surah number two at number 190 Surah Surah number two at number 191 Surah Surah number two at number 192. So the Baccarat surah number two and number two for debo
Nyssa surah number four Atma 74 Surah Nisa surah number four at number 86 furnaces for number four at number 76. So, really sensor number four at number 94 furnaces are number 495. So nice. So number four is number 100. So, remind us we're number five at number 35. Sorry, unfurl for number eight at number 72. Sorry unfulfilling. Number eight at number 74. It's been an insert a taba, surah number nine at number five and six in for a Toba surah number nine Atma 20 in Surah Tauba sama nine Atma 41 in Surah Tauba surah number nine at number 81 in Surah Tauba surah number nine at number 111 in Surah Surah number 22 at number 58 and at number 78 in Surah Surah number 49 at number 15 in for a
substitute number 61 at number four and at number 11 in Surah. Number 66. At number nine, these are all the places where Allah commanded the Muslims to do gr but believe me, not a single ad which says kill all the non Muslims on Earth. On the contrary, on the contrary, I challenge there is not a single religious scripture except the Quran, nor any law book on the face of the earth except the Quran which has a statement where Allah says the Muslims in Surah Maya surah number five at number 32 if any one of you save the life of any innocent human being whether a Muslim or a non Muslim, it is as though you have saved the whole of humanity. And if you kill any innocent life, whether of a
Muslim or a non Muslim, in the sight of Allah, you have killed the whole of humanity coming to Osama bin Laden and the people who are labeled as terrorists today. See, one thing is very clear. For the Muslims. Prophet Muhammad is the ideal. Allah commanded in Surah as absolute number 33 at number 21, Lacan Allah, Allah He was one of the best example for mankind to follow is in the life of Prophet Muhammad. I say even the non Muslim brothers and sisters, they should study the life of Prophet Muhammad. And when they study that life, if you find any binladin or anybody in compatibility with the Sunnah, then you have all the right to discuss Islam, but if somebody you find is not going
according to Quran and Sunnah, you are most
invited to correct such a person to say that you are not working according to Quran and Sunnah. So binladin and all these people have never been an ideal to the Muslims will never be an ideal in the future. 100 buildings are bound, they can never be an ideal to the Muslim community. He was right he was wrong. There are many who might think he is right. There are many in the world who think he is wrong. For us it is least important if he has killed an innocent life in the sight of Allah has killed all of humanity, it's wrong. There is not about it, if he is killed, if he has killed any innocent life, he has killed the whole of humanity. That is what the verbatim Word of God now what
you just did, I mean, some people just got blown away they're like, wow, are these references that you are giving from what we call an anyone can confirm this who has an open heart open mind it takes analytical scientific approach. You are quoting the verbatim Word of God the Quran giving references Yeah, and that's the ultimate source for Islam. That's the ultimate source for Islam. Anything everything a Muslim has to do has to do it only from the Quran and the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam and authentic Salah, and believe me, believe me, people like Osama bin Laden, and these people have never been the ideas to the Muslims. Our ideas are not our role models.
Our role model was the last and final messenger Muhammad peace be upon him, of course was a messenger like Jesus Moses knows on the ground all the same vein teachings absolutely absolutely the same teachings they have brought and what was that teaching, the teaching of peace to the earth the teaching of Islam to the earth. That is what every messenger of God brought. The teaching of Islam began from other Muslims Salaam and concluded with the message of Quran being revealed to Prophet ma Muslim who was the last and final prophet and messenger of Allah and Quran being the last book of Allah revealed as a political as an economy as a social justice system for the entire mankind till
eternity. Let's take a break. We'll be right back. Not the lucky for more here on the D show brother and Ron.
And if we're gonna worship something, I figured I might as well worship this
crater instead of any of the creations.
Now, upon investigating the villages, I remember finding out the meaning of what Islam is what a Muslim is. Those who surrender their self to God is a Muslim. Those who submit to God, God's will that Islam was pure, it was just, you just pray to god you create.
Not afraid to say
I am not afraid.
I'm not afraid to say.
Back on the D show with our special guests clearing up all the chaos and confusion Islam is not calling a human being to kill other innocent human being. It's not about that you're getting to hear it here on the deen show. We define what jihad is a struggle and striving to do good and to suppress the evil things that you might want to do that you shouldn't be doing. And all the messengers of God they call to Islam submission to the one guy that's how you have peace. Now, there's some people out there. We don't know what's in their hearts. Many people are going and speaking about Islam, they don't have the correct knowledge about Islam. So the quote verses out of context, they'll say, you
know what, what he's saying is baloney. And they'll say, look at this verse, chapter nine, verse 29, or other verses and say, Look, it says kill them. It says, you know, kill the infidels, all these other stuff. How do you combat this true? True? Mashallah.
So first of all, as Edie one very important thing is jihad in Islam is done against basically four enemies of God. Two of them are invisible enemies of God, you'll be wondering, how can we do jihad against them? The first one that you started the talk, that is the selfish desire, when you fight against your own selfish desire, you want to imbibe alcohol? And you say, No, I'm not going to do that. You want to intoxicate yourself with drugs or something? And you say no, no to drugs, because Allah is watching me. I feel Allah. So this struggle that I do against my own selfish desire, you want to commit fornication or adultery and you say, No, Allah is watching me and not go do that. So
all these kind of striving is jihad against your selfish desire, and the jihad against the shaytan the jihad against the shaitan because Allah said that Satan has been given the power to whisper and misguide the humanity. So Allah subhanaw taala asked us to do jihad against a chef on the site and might whisper you and say nobody's watching you, you can seek allows forgiveness of three have committed a sin, not a problem and you say no, I was blind Mashallah regime, I think the production of Allah from this Shaitan, the s3 one, and when I do this, I'm doing jihad Anissa shaitan. The remaining two enemies are visible, the oppressors and the hypocrites. You see the appraisal center
hypocrites can be amongst the Muslims too. So Allah has commanded us to do jihad against the oppressors and the hypocrites, but how to do that method has been given in the life of Prophet Muhammad Salallahu alaihe salam, and then the Jihad that is the warfare method which is referred in the Quran many times as cattle meaning where you kill your enemy or you get killed by your enemy. So many either there in the Quran, but a small statistic I would like to give to you Please go ahead. Prophet Muhammad SAW Islam when he was alive at battles were fought at 800. The profitsystem himself participated in 27. Out of these at only nine work combats, the remaining didn't happen as a war at
all, or there was no combat at all, only nine combat happened. And the number of enemies of God Kay was only about 219. And the Muslim soldiers or the Muslim Sahaba killed were a little above 100 look at these figures. If you look at these figures, if Prophet was implementing the Quran, killing everybody, the figures are totally opposite to what is being claimed. You look at what's happening only in the last 100 years on this planet Earth in which we are surviving. If you check the First World War 1914 to 1918 the First World War according to Encyclopedia Americana, it killed 21 million human beings unmasking was the Quran involved in the First World War. Was anybody doing jihad in the
First World War for the Muslims involved in the First World War? No. If you look at the second world war that happened how many
People were killed 1937 to 1945, the figure of the human beings killed is recorded in the Guinness Book of World Record 56 million human beings were killed. And again I asked was the Quran? What is that? What the Muslims involved in that what they're responsible for it was a jihad, know who killed them, you are fighting amongst yourself. So if you look at the figures, only these two figures, the Russian Revolution, the French Revolution, the war between Ireland and British look at the number of people being get killed. Where is jihad or Khurana Muslims involved in these things that don't involve? It's just a media that is defaming a particular teaching of Islam and coming back again, if
you observe, you will find that the concept of jihad is even given in other holy scriptures, please give us those. You see Jesus Christ, my peace be upon him he is referred as the Prince of Peace. As a Muslim, I have no doubt he was the Prince of Peace. You see, but the same Prince of Peace. He says in Gospel of Matthew chapter number 10, was number 34. Think not that I have come to spread peace on earth. I have not come to spread peace, but a sword. A sword. Yeah, that is what and he's saying, I have not come to spread peace.
But still he is the Prince of Peace. I say if any Muslim is codes this to say that Jesus was a terrorist now's Billa May Allah forbid, it's a sin to me, am putting out of context that is what any Christian would say. Jesus says in Gospel of Luke, chapter number 19, verse number 27. Bring that person in front of me and slay him who does not take me as a ruler over him. That's a Jesus who is beloved to our hearts No, as a Muslim.
Muslim is a Muslim if he does not believe respect and love Jesus Christ, but peace be upon him. We Muslims, we believe that Jesus was a mighty messenger of Allah. He was born miraculously to Virgin Mary, which many modern decreases do not believe. We Muslims, we believe that he healed those who were born blind and the lepers but alas permission. We believe that he gave life to the dead, but by Allah's permission, will love him, will love him in the category of all the other messengers, including Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam, if you read the Bible, if you read the Old Testament, in the book of Exodus, step number 34, verse number 11 to 14, in the book of Numbers, check number
31, verse number one to 18 in the book of Numbers, check number 3133 verse number 5256, is the Bible now this is the Bible, the Old Testament, the book of the Jews and the Christians. If you read this was to say what to say, Hey, I read in the book of Deuteronomy chapter number two verse number 26, to 35, in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter three, verse number one towards number seven, in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter number seven, verse number one to number six, in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter 20, verse number 10, to 18. All these places Moses May peace be upon him, Musa alayhis salam has been commanded to attack the inhabitants of the enemies and kill all of them, including their
women in the children. This is the Bible. This is the Bible, not the Quran, not the Quran. In fact, they have been commanded to kill all the women, the children and the men and leave only the girls who have not gone to bed with a man for yourself. On the contrary to this, if you read for Al Bukhari, the most authentic book on the compile ation of the teachings of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam which is other than the Quran, if you read it, volume number four Hadees number 257 and 258. The Prophet sallallahu wasallam said it is forbidden Maha Muslim said it is forbidden for the Muslim soldiers to touch a lady to touch a woman or a child in the battle. You cannot touch
them. If you read other books of the teaching of Prophet moslem on his compilations of his teachings, he said you should not attack the leader of the really other religious groups, if they have not come to fight you, you cannot destroy the agricultural fields, you cannot pollute the drinking water of the people. You cannot cut down the trees you cannot kill the animals, which are for agriculture purpose or for them to eat. You cannot touch it the babies, the children and the women. This is the teaching in Islam. Which of these teachings I ask is terrorism. This is not amazing. The word terrorism has got more than 100 definitions. According to the United Nations
itself. These are amazing facts and again, not fiction. We're out of time for those truth seekers out sincere people you know what? Now the fog has been cleared they can see a little clear. They like that Islam calls to pure monotheism, not worshiping Jesus not worshiping saints and animals and elephants and monkeys, but only worshiping the creator of all that exists and doing good and doing the jihad against the evil of your own self that causes you to drinking and drugs and gambling and doing an establishing noble cared. They like this. And you know what, there's still a little bit timid, go ahead and talk to him. Give him some advice. Give him some advice, Shay, go ahead. Sure. I
would just say
One thing the Prophet sallallahu wasallam said in a hadith is recorded in Al Bukhari volume number four, this number 667 ballyhoo Annie Bala ayah if you people know one thing about Islam one thing about me can be it to those who do not know about it unless and until we Muslims are going to do this job. Ally is not going to help us. We need to do every Muslim man and every Muslim woman needs to do this. We need to go out to our non Muslim brothers and sisters. They are our brothers and sisters because they are the children of Adam and Eve they are the children of other molester Amina Bala Salaam, and we cannot see them being punished on the day of gentlemen, but not believing in the
true creator Allah subhanaw taala and not believing in the last and final messenger prophet Mama's Islam and not believing in the last and final Testament, the world Constitution, the word of Allah, the Quran, which is for the peace of humanity, if practiced in the right perspective, at once again, I would just like to repeat one very important thing I would like to reiterate because I am in the United States, you're holding a show for me in Chicago, I really am thankful to you, I'd like to reiterate that Islam is not against every non Muslim, just as every non Muslim is not against every Muslim. Similarly, Islam and Muslims are not against every non Muslim. And there might be
disagreements with a lot of things that we do in a family a husband disagrees, the wife a wife disagrees the husband, but that does not mean they are enemies and to each other. So similarly, if Americans disagree too many things about Islam and Muslims, that does not mean all Americans are anti Islam. Similarly, if Muslims disagree to American policies of certain kind, that should not mean to the Americans that all the Muslims are anti Americans. This is a very important message I would like to convey to the beautiful people of this nation, the United States of America. Thank you very much. My God Almighty, the credit rewards you for being with us. Thank you. Thank you. Peace be
with you. So Anakin. Thank you again for tuning into the D Show. I'm so excited. I'm so happy you got to learn so much. You got to learn about jihad. It's been misrepresented. You see now by just sitting patiently through this episode, you learn so much, and Islam is something that's for the whole of mankind. Pick up a free copy of the verbatim Word of God the Quran, one 800 662 Islam, call the number, call the number and visit us here every week on the D show. Until next time, peace be on to you.
