I have 16 years of Catholic education 16 Wow, I was raised with nuns, literally. They were like my family. And I told him it was a wonderful thing. I had answers 70% of the people in our penal system in the United States identify as Christians. Do we blame the Christians? No, we don't blame Christianity. Now, if you look at all the domestic terrorists,

00:00:27--> 00:01:05

I hate to say it but most of them are white male Christians. But that's not Christianity. That's crazy. Shadow. I said, Do Allah, Allah, if you're like me, you've been watching the deen show for now almost 20 years I love preserve our men Eddie and continue his work he is Allah has opened for him a new door. We went from the deen show to the deen Center, which is going to be in Florida. And I've been rooting for this project. I support it. I urge you to support it too. We know this brother in his work. He's got a track record that speaks for itself. This center is going to be successful in sha Allah, as successful as the show is and all his other double works, go to the website support

00:01:05--> 00:01:08

it. And we look forward to seeing more good news coming out of there.

00:01:13--> 00:01:43

Hello, this Valentina make Kinley Absolutely. Thank you for taking time for me. So tell us what has gotten you interested in Islam? I've always been a searcher. Really? I have. I have 16 years of Catholic education. 16 Wow. By the time I was eight, I remember telling the good sisters, and they were good, holy, righteous women, that this just didn't make sense.

00:01:45--> 00:01:50

never looked back. But good education, education with the soul.

00:01:52--> 00:01:54

But Christianity wasn't for me.

00:01:55--> 00:02:14

So that's what you were brought up. You were brought up in in the Christian faith. I was brought up in that Christian faith that I have. Even though I'm a nurse, I was always studying religions. I was first introduced to Islam in the 1980s, I

00:02:15--> 00:02:27

met a wonderful Muslim doctor who said, You need to come to the mosque. And I did and I met this family and I sat with the sisters, full jabi.

00:02:29--> 00:02:59

In fact, I went often enough, they invited me to talk to the religious school to talk to the young girls about covering. I loved covering. I was raised with nuns literally. They were like my family. And I told him it was a wonderful thing. But life got in the way. From me pursuing it. I had my youngest was six months old, I had had five kids and seven years. I was working and it just wasn't the time. But I still searched.

00:03:00--> 00:03:10

Yes. And so late, I finally sat down and said, This is ridiculous. I'm not getting any younger. And I said to God, look, you need to make this happen.

00:03:11--> 00:03:47

And I decided to put it in his hands. And slowly all these phrases came through my mind. And I didn't recognize it at first. There is no you know, there is no one worth worshiping for the law, or the Most Merciful, the Most Compassionate, or to you we turn to you, we come for help. And gracious does come from and then all sudden, it hit me. It came from the Alpha Taha, I could remember this 30 years later, it made such an impact on me. And I said, this is it, God has sent me the message, it's time to do it.

00:03:49--> 00:04:07

Wow, this is amazing. So you were brought up with different nuns, and you'd see them wearing what resembles the hijab. But my mother wasn't really available. So the nuns and the Blessed Mother, were my role models.

00:04:08--> 00:04:14

Not because of Jesus, but because they were pure, righteous women. And that's kind of what I modeled my life.

00:04:16--> 00:04:26

And just theology God being a man, part of Jesus being part of a trinity. This just didn't make sense to you. Like it

00:04:27--> 00:04:49

didn't make any sense. I thought, Why didn't why you didn't intermediaries? And if God is one, how can God be three? I've always believed in one create, there has to be one Creator. And you know the adage, why would he come down and kill himself for our sake, when he could just forgive?

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

And that's kind of the bent I pursued. But life got in the way. And I'm so ready right now.

00:05:00--> 00:05:49

like it does for a lot of people, you get distracted with all of the different things of life, family job career, and but I like what you just said that you asked God Almighty to make it clear for you directly and alone. And you also got past I'm sure a lot of these stereotypes, a lot of the prejudices people have, how did you see through that, with all the media hype, you know, all the things that I never had them? And I had answers. Definitely percent of the people in our penal system in the United States identify as Christians. Do we blame the Christians? No. And I thought, I don't know what happened to 911. I suspect it's nothing like we were told, but you can't take a

00:05:49--> 00:06:16

handful of people and say that represents the religion. To me that had nothing to do with Islam. Nothing. Because I knew Muslim people. Unfortunately, once I left that hospital, I don't think I've met another Muslim person, I worked for the government, I worked on Indian reservations. So I have a wide range of culture, and people are people. People.

00:06:17--> 00:06:39

I liked that point. That observation, you said that around 80 80% of people incarcerated are in the penal system are if you want to do the numbers and Bs I could see could be seven 80%, whatever it is around 80% are Christians. We don't blame Christianity. Now, if you look at all the domestic terrorists,

00:06:40--> 00:06:46

I hate to say it, but most of them are white male Christians. But that's not Christianity. That's crazy.

00:06:48--> 00:06:50

That's crazy. And you can't blame

00:06:52--> 00:07:02

that, that says, It is forbidden to kill innocent people, innocent animals and say it could be connected, but most people

00:07:03--> 00:07:19

don't see it that way. I hear people buy Oh, that Oh, wow. That crazy thing, and I go through the whole Linguistics of it. A lot of the Arabic word for God. Jesus be an Aramaic Aramaic would have said a lot.

00:07:20--> 00:07:22

You know, in Mexico, you say,

00:07:23--> 00:07:53

deal. Frankly, you see it, it's just the same word. But being that it's a complete line of profits. It's the same religion. I don't realize the third religion of people of the book is Islam. They have no clue. And most people, my sister calls it willful ignorance. And what did she call it? What? willful ignorance willful ignorance? Oh, I don't want to know.

00:07:54--> 00:08:20

And I just, I've done my best. Even before this whole revelation came to me, I defended Islam. It's like, you don't know what you're talking about. Look into. You have a spin that paints Muslims, bad. They, the people did in fact, do 911 That wasn't about religion. That was about politics.

00:08:22--> 00:08:24

How did you come across the deen show?

00:08:26--> 00:08:50

Searching, searching for answers. And I saw your podcast and I thought I'm gonna listen to this guy. Because I know what I know. And this gives me the arguments. Because I'm not fully knowledgeable. I mean, I read repeat, I have books on Islam. Now I was like, we got to do this because God sent me a direct message.

00:08:51--> 00:09:37

Beautiful. So I'll just go over real quickly. If you haven't already, you probably have but just for for the viewing audience and others that the six articles of faith, the belief in one God, belief in the messengers, belief in the Revelation, the books that were revealed to the messengers, through the angels belief in angels. So we got through four, five, belief in the hereafter today a judgment paradise hellfire and predestiny How does that sound? This is the beliefs that's that are in the heart. Can you accept all that? Absolutely. And then from there, we have the five pillars. Those are what people now if they have the six articles down the belief system, now they start step by step

00:09:37--> 00:10:00

they start implementing the shahada is the first one. And then after that, you have the prayer five times a day. You build up to that then you have the fasting during the month of Ramadan. You have this ACAD the poor do and then you have the fasting as I said, in the hajj, the pilgrimage to hudge once in your lifetime, but let's

00:10:00--> 00:10:34

Go back to the one that you're ready to do now. This is the shahada, the testimony of faith if you were living during the time of Jesus, you would have said the same thing I bear witness that there is nothing worthy of worship except the creator the heavens the earth in Arabic Allah and Jesus is the messenger during Moses time same thing I love repeating this because it just makes sense it's not different religions God is sending one religion to Moses one to Jesus one to Abraham, they all came with the same way of life submit your will, to the will of the Creator the heavens and earth and in one word, this is Islam. So English or Arabic first it's up to you

00:10:36--> 00:10:45

All right, so let's let's go with the the Arabic first ash had to do and La

00:10:46--> 00:10:57

Ilaha Lucha in Mala. Mala. Why shadow should do. And then then Mohammed

00:10:59--> 00:11:00

Abdullah, who

00:11:02--> 00:11:04

have the who? What a solo

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

person

00:11:07--> 00:11:11

I bear witness, witness, I testify

00:11:13--> 00:11:18

to five, that there's nothing worthy of worship, that there is nothing worthy of worship,

00:11:19--> 00:11:28

except the Creator Allah, except the Creator Allah. And I bear witness. Witness, I testify

00:11:30--> 00:11:52

that Muhammad, Muhammad, peace be upon him, he's to be upon is the messenger of Allah is the messenger of Allah. And I bear witness that bear witness that Jesus, that Jesus, the son of Mary, Mary is a mess, messenger of Allah. Messenger.

00:11:53--> 00:12:23
