Where one brotherhood standing shoulder to shoulder worshiping one. God smilla Al Hamdulillah Salaam Alaikum. Peace be unto you. Welcome to the deen show. You just got to see an incredible moment. Brother Chris, you have just taken the declaration of faith. How do you feel? I feel very good. very overwhelmed. You're a Muslim now? Yes. you nervous? Yes. I'm nervous. Excited. Yes, you should be because you have just, you've done the most wonderful thing that a human being can do. You've chosen

00:04:42--> 00:04:59

out of your own freewill. To take this free choice that you have either to surrender to the dollar, to the woman to society, to materialism, to something created, you've chosen out of your own free choice to surrender to the one who has created you, God Almighty. That's a wonderful thing. That's the declaration that you guys got to see. How's that for

00:05:00--> 00:05:10

Hmm, that's a good feeling. all your sins now are forgiven everything. Now if you owe somebody some money, you got to pay that debt. But everything is like if you start fresh, yeah, that's good. So now

00:05:11--> 00:05:52

he's a Muslim, you're Muslim. Okay? You are one who submits who's chosen freely to submit to surrender, not to anyone created, okay, not to a man, not to a monkey, not to a stone, but to the creator of all, the creator of Jesus Christ, the creator of Moses, of Abraham, Mohammed, the creator of the sun, the moon. All right, you know, the sun is a Muslim, did you know that? I found that out today, a son, the son is a Muslim, how is it because the sun is submitting to a lot to God, the trees are Muslim, the moon is a Muslim, everything that is submitting to God is a Muslim. And now you've made that choice to be a Muslim one who surrenders and submits because somebody you know, who

00:05:52--> 00:06:11

might not be a Muslim, maybe he's investigating or he has some misconceptions. Oh, man, you decide to be a terrorist. There is one of the biggest misconceptions is Muslims fight against terrorism, you cannot be a muslim terrorist. These are two oxymorons. How was it meeting all your new brothers in Islam? That was amazing.

00:06:13--> 00:06:29

It's weird, because, you know, you never know if you're going to be accepted. Because to me, and to probably most people like me, white Americans, for the most part, you think I'm different? They're different. And so you really don't understand their culture. So you don't know Are they going to accept me as one of them?

00:06:31--> 00:07:06

It's a big problem we have today in society. And when all those people came up to me and started hugging me, and were saying everything, to me, it it's amazing night because those those problems we make as humans there, but if you really, look, they're really not there. You know, the people that make us think that we're different. It's like, we're programmed, at least in America, at least that's how I feel. It's like you grow up in the media is telling you certain things, the government's telling you certain things, so you feel that you're not like one of these people, they're different, and they're not gonna accept you. But it's, it's, it's an illusion. It's it's not

00:07:06--> 00:07:45

true. It's a big illusion. That's what's amazing to me, that's really blew my mind blew my mind. That was the overwhelming part. But it was a really good feeling. All these people coming together white, brown, yellow from all over the world they come in, to to embrace you. Because now it's you're part of a brotherhood, coming together to worship one guy, now. We need to be steadfast, you've chosen, and you did the most important thing in one's life. Islam is based on five pillars, you completed one of them, that's the testimony. The second one is to establish this connection with your Creator five times a day, how's that? That's good, many times a day to you.

00:07:46--> 00:08:21

Right, around five to around five, right? So this is something that's very important. We have to work on our soul, we have to work on our connection with our Creator. So five times a day, the most important thing I tell my brother, Chris here, and I tell everyone is to establish this prayer. Know that you will be tried, you will be tested. God Almighty tells you this life is a test. So you want to establish the prayer because the prayer is going to make you firm in this religion is going to make you firm in this way of life. The Prayer is your connection with your Creator of the heavens and earth. Make sure that you're seeking knowledge constantly, balance your time out well. Too much

00:08:21--> 00:09:03

material physical, the soul now becomes dead and that our goal is paradise because there's life is transitory. Think a death often and this will remind you that death is coming. So now stay on doing good. Stay on seeking truth during these good deeds. And this is now how you will attain that ultimate sense of success in this life in the hereafter. All right, implementing Islam, which means submission, surrender to the Creator of the heavens and earth, staying away from major sins. And God willing, you'll be okay. It's not that difficult. All right. If you're sincere, and you really want to please your Creator, you're gonna do what he says. And the system is there, it's all laid out.

00:09:03--> 00:09:36

And all you got to do is just put in the work, right? Like anything in life. I agree. You gotta you got to put in the work. And especially for a paradise. That is like nothing you can imagine. That's what we're striving for. So brother, thank you once again, for being on the deen show. And letting everybody witness this wonderful moment in your life today is anything you want to say to anybody who's you know, out there and you know who's also possibly considering Islam. Keep an open mind and open heart and don't try to be so judgmental and just

00:09:37--> 00:09:40

question everything, including the government in the media.

00:09:42--> 00:10:00

And anybody else who's having a hard time out there. We're here at the Dean's show to help you out. Send us your emails. You have any comments, suggestions? We have a ton of different topics that we tried to cover, clearing all the misconceptions. Remember, if you can dig this, that there's no one worthy of worship it

00:10:00--> 00:10:10

cept the Creator of the heavens and earth, that you worship him along with our partners, everything else will fall in place and that's the main message of Islam and to do good deeds constantly. Thank you again brother. Thank you

00:10:12--> 00:10:17

and we'll see you again. inshallah, on the deen show as salaam alaikum Peace be on T
