that story, I mean, no sense. You just say you choked. I would have to say, if I was to find God, it would have to be via
I think it's the last religion on the planet.
Right religion, I think it's the last religion. So this is the last true religion on the planet that it has to be the correct.
Buddha, whoa, sobering thing to say that.
If you want to look at countries, I'd love to actually do this study, maybe you know better than me. But if I were to look at countries in terms of police expenditure to crime, I would I would guarantee that the Islamic countries, the ones we just talked about, the first world ones are some of the safest countries on earth per capita for the amount of money they spend trying to police crime, whereas in other countries, we're just spending unlimited money trying to stop crime, we can't stop. Women don't respect men, the more men don't really want the women besides, for one night stand, no one's having children, no one's having families, no one's satisfied or fulfilled, which is
why they want to take drugs and do stupid things and degenerate themselves. And everything spirals into the other, right? Humans need higher purpose. And this is the thing I'll be completely honest with you, my friend, I was an atheist for a long time. I really was I was an atheist for a long time. And I didn't truly really believe in God until about maybe seven or eight years ago, I thought I was a smart ass and thought I'll you know atheist, bla bla, bla, and then God starts showing Himself to me in many ways, whichever religion he's from, but then I realized that people need something to believe in all these people who are atheist. They're they believe in climate change,
and abortion, law and COVID more than anybody else, they have their beliefs, they have their religions, liberalism, and their religion is a religion of absolute degeneracy. You know, like, look at the things they purport, look at how hard they tried to convince the world that it's a good idea that we eat the bugs and climate change, and that people change gender and all this other garbage. So everyone needs something higher to believe it. And I think that these I mean, correct me if I'm wrong is Islam is not even as old as Christianity, right? It's not even that old is it? Well, it goes a little deeper, if I can just take a second and kind of run it down to you see, what we
believe is that you have the first man Adam, and he was told to submit his will, to the crater alone without associates not to worship a stick of stone, a bone or anything creation. So we believe that Islam started with the first man Adam, then that concept of submission to the will of one and only one God, not worshiping your desires, not worshiping a human being. Anything in creation, was the same way of life that was preached in teached.
With every messenger that God Almighty sent, and from Abraham, no, Moses, you name it all, many of the biblical prophets, they all call their people to worship one and only one God and to submit their will like the Lord's Prayer, you hear the Lord's Prayer, Our Father who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name, thy kingdom come, thy will be done. We say this is a slump. So just like at that time, if Abraham was asked, if he ever heard this term human, he was a human, but he never heard that, or human, that term human. But now, if, if he was a human, he was same thing if you there's a verse in the Quran, where God Almighty is saying, Abraham, Abraham, he wasn't a Jew or a
Christian, but he was one who submitted his will to God Almighty. That's what a Muslim is because people get that's why these defining these terms is so important because you know, you're sitting Muslim, you think an Arab in a desert, you'll think Islam, it's like some religion just it's a new religion that started with Muhammad. No, no, we say it started with the first met Adam, it continued with Moses, Abraham, Jesus, peace be upon them. They all call people to Islam, to submit your will to the will of God, and they were all Muslims, they were all ones who submitted their will to one and only one God. You know, it's a simple, it's very simple to understand very, very, you know, and
then when you mentioned, God, it's, it goes with the innate nature. There's a beautiful verse in the Quran, where it's, that's 112 chapter it says, Cool, who Allah I had long
Solomon linearly dawned on me while a miracle local who
say he has got the one and only the the unique, the eternal He begets not nor is he begotten, meaning that he's not born of of anyone nor does he die. He doesn't have children a DNA of zip code and area code No. And there's nothing comparable to him nothing nothing if you cannot compare anyone or anything to God, this is the pure monotheism This is what distinguishes Islam for every other ism is the pure monotheism.
So I hope I answered your question so we say it's not a new religion started with my Mohammed, it just the finality, he would just define a messenger completing it with the living miracle that we have today, which is the Quran because Jesus had his time.
To prove he was a messenger, he did certain miracles. And but if you were to ask an atheist today, show me those miracles, you can show him, but we believe in him. But today anyone who takes a scientific analytical approach they will see from the preservation of the Quran, to the prophecies, you know, to many of the scientific statement there's, you know, the, the literary miracle of the Quran, you know, there's just too many things that it doesn't add up that this would come from a huge as a human being. So it's not blind faith in Islam, you take you use the faculties that God Almighty gave you, you look into the Quran, you look into the life of Mohammed, and then like
myself, and many you're like, This is not possible. This can come from a human being and then you submit, do you have a lot of Christians who convert or change? Do you have that a lot? Because you can go and watch you know, I got hundreds I've been doing this since early 2000. We got hundreds and hundreds of programs with people. I have a good friend, he's from Romania, his Gibreel Romani, Gabriel Romani. He's somebody who was a Christian, and he accepted Islam, you have tons of tons of tons of stories of people, same thing, who are struggling with with many of the concepts of God that are out there. And then they looked into they looked into all the different different religions like
myself, and they saw that Islam just made the most sense, like you're saying the things that it fixed the problems, you know, if society gave solutions not only on how to go to the from the smallest things of how to go to the bathroom, to how to run your home, and how to run a country, everything is laid out, and it doesn't make sense that this human being could have came up with these things, you know? Yeah, it's true. It's absolutely it's absolutely interesting. And that's where the base of my faith comes from my respect for it all. $50 $100 $200 A Ceylon Lincoln brothers and sisters for the amount that you will spend on a t shirt, a pair of pants, or some shoes which
