We got to do a lot of movement. Yeah. So they were so are you involved in martial arts? Yeah. On and off. Yes. Now, Were you the one that started The Karate Kid wax on wax off.

00:01:58--> 00:01:59

wax on,

00:02:00--> 00:02:01

wax off?

00:02:05--> 00:02:05

No, no.

00:02:07--> 00:02:21

That was a very, very popular movie. Yeah. And they used to have, it was Miyagi. He was like the Grandmaster and you had Karate Kid. So he came to what they were picking on and bullying them. And, and people remember wax on wax off?

00:02:24--> 00:03:06

Did you see that? Every every hurricane is Baraka. Every day. I mean, every movement, there's always some blessing. Yes, yes. Mashallah. You have a unique story? Because you came from a Buddhist background? Is that it? Yes, no. So the viewers now we get to speak to a lot of people who came from the Christian background. But now this is unique. I've actually never interviewed someone who came from a Buddhist background. Now, talk to us. Tell us a little bit about your story before Islam. Yeah, I'm having the lab been there been born from a Chinese family. We will not major to the Chinese, the Buddhists, or out there Toby's, are Buddhists. And some of my family members, they are

00:03:06--> 00:03:25

Buddhists. And as a Buddhist, we know that. If you understand the teaching of Gautama Buddha, then you understand how this word Buddha derived from now he derived from the word of booth, meaning before Gautama become

00:03:26--> 00:04:12

been enlightened. So he was looking for something, the Buddha Buddha, what was his real name, Guatemala, Guatemala, Guatemala, and that's what it's named after. Then after his Buddha is not his name. Buddha is a title given to him. What does that title mean? That title derived from the word Buddha means the awakening, awakening, awakening that he was looking for something. So he'd say his name again one more time? What time What time? Ah, yeah, he was looking for something for some kind of enlightenment, okay. So the awakening of him looking for something that is missing in his life is called boot. Buddha Sanskrit word. And that again means would mean awakening, awakening, awakening.

00:04:12--> 00:04:36

So he had an awakening, but yeah, he have the boot. He had the boot then later on, he was he gotta leave the palace because he's a, he was a priest, or he was a prince. He was a praying so he had the cash and money I have, but he's missing something amazing as a spiritual thing. Yes. So he knows something is missing in his life. Uh huh. You know, so he left the palace. And that's where he start his journey, the journey to look for the truth.

00:04:37--> 00:04:54

And he was he encountered a lot of other homies or so called saints at that time, people who isolate themselves in the, in the forest, you know, just by themselves, keeping their head long. That news uncovered.

00:04:55--> 00:04:59

But he's not attracted to that kind of practice. Yes.

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

It is not real.

00:05:03--> 00:05:42

So he was looking and looking and nobody can explain to him. Nobody can give him guidance. And that's why he meditate and abou tree, under what kind of world trade the color booth? Yeah. Because if you go back to the history of all these profits, all profit will have to go to this color. They called Kahlua means a kind of seclusion, seclusion. And so what happened to Guatemala? He was meditating under the Bodhi tree, looking for an answer, looking for something, he wants to know, the real life, what is life after death?

00:05:44--> 00:05:46

And from there he was enlightened.

00:05:47--> 00:06:13

In one he received the enlightenment. Then he was given the title, Buddha. What was this enlightenment that he had, that he did that he experienced, that he, he understand what is life now he know what is that life is the mission is something that you must do here before you meet the Almighty God. So he believed in a god he believed in God, because he is so

00:06:14--> 00:06:58

interesting, before you come to understand about Buddhism. Normally people say Gautama Buddha Buddhism have nothing to do with God is a way of life. Now hold on, you are like a were you actually like, what do you call a monk like, Am I really a man, but I do get involved very closely. We're very involved. So you knew that their teachings very well? No. Yeah. Now how were you? Because you are obviously looking to get enlightened. So before you learned all of this, what was your What was your faith before? Now I was a as a Chinese descendant, you're obviously always makes you have it. Buddhist Tao is and also some of us are Christian later on became a Christian. So where were you

00:06:58--> 00:07:38

from? What was your family? Your mother and father in India are Buddhists Buddhists. So you were born into a Buddhist family with his family? Okay, so now the Buddhist family, okay, they're following these teachings. But this is very interesting, because like you said, I want I want to, if you can elaborate on this a little more, because most Buddhists, they say that there is no God. Yeah, so this is false. No, this is not true. This is what we taught. Yes. But that's nothing to do with the teaching of Gautama Buddha. If you are fair enough, to go back to the history of, of Gautama Buddha, then you will come to a conclusion that he do not deny God, you got to go back and

00:07:38--> 00:07:53

study there in his Dharma, that the teaching of Gautama Buddha is always called dharma. That's Dharma is their doctrine. That's their doctrine, doctrine, okay. And their books, they have their book, there are many books, but normally we talk about books, they talk about dharma.

00:07:54--> 00:08:29

And then if you look at these teaching, the Dharma we start with karma, karma, karma, if you look into the Islamic term, is about faith about what is being feted by God. You just got to accept now what is going to happen to you, but we always what they teach is like, What goes around comes around. This is like the karma. Yeah. Yeah. Is it like you do something good. At the end of the day, you'll be rewarded accordingly? Yes, is the only way they explain in a different ways, but I'll come back to the Condor and other

00:08:31--> 00:08:45

if you compare with what Islam say about karma, is about kata and kata. So what we say is destiny. Same thing as the karma karma. Okay, let's hold off right there. We're gonna take a break and we right back on the D show.

00:08:48--> 00:09:06

There always be someone that will be there to say something negative, but at the same time, there'll be someone there to say something positive. Just hold on to the wolf. Everything in this universe, rely a need for answers don't kill women. Don't kill children. Don't kill old people don't attack the civilians. This is what the prophet Mohammed.

00:09:08--> 00:09:12

Allah said that the prophets are solid never ever start a war against anybody.

00:09:13--> 00:09:14

hunger.

00:09:16--> 00:09:17

I am not afraid to say

00:09:20--> 00:09:21

I am not afraid.

00:09:24--> 00:09:26

I'm not afraid to say

00:09:33--> 00:09:34

not afraid.

00:09:36--> 00:09:38

I am not afraid.

00:09:41--> 00:09:42

I'm not afraid.

00:09:50--> 00:09:57

Back here where she was saying ye Now tell us shake please. how deeply Were you involved in Buddhism?

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

If you look back to my lifestyle, yeah, from young, I like to get involved in on the spiritual kind of thing. And the best way to get involved is to serve the temple.

00:10:11--> 00:10:35

There's a best way to move in the temple. You're close to the man. You're close to all these so called religious people. Yes. Who can explain to you more about, you know, what the teaching of Gautama Buddha is about? Was he like a prophet to them? Or what was he? Do they look at Him as God to them before they look at them and that can lead a spiritual leader, okay?

00:10:36--> 00:10:50

They don't call him prophet attorney. And they like their master gurus. They call like the guru that gurus now. But later on what happened, people start to worship Him.

00:10:52--> 00:10:58

Later, this is way later cause they lifted like the Chinese to the majority, the if they want to

00:10:59--> 00:11:19

ask something, they'll go to the temple of the Buddhist temple, and they start to call his name and ask some kind of blessing to him. Did he ever tell people to do though? No, none, not in his time? No, never allow anybody to worship him or he never claimed himself as God.

00:11:20--> 00:12:03

You know, all that he has some kind of gotcha. Even though correct me if I'm wrong. I'm just coming to the assumption, because you're our teachers. So please, if I say anything, that's not correct. We in Islam, we believe that over 124,000 messengers were sent. Is it possible that this might have been a messenger that called people to pure monotheism? Is it possible? To my understanding, yeah, no one said that anybody should believe what I see what do you buy for my own research, after coming to Islam, and I compare back to the teaching the topic of Islam, and the teaching of Guatemala, I don't see any differences.

00:12:04--> 00:12:18

And I believe that what Allah subhanho wa Taala did inform us, while Aqaba is not equally materasso land, and the lowest enable would, Indeed, Allah say, we are sent to all nations, a messenger,

00:12:19--> 00:12:49

a messenger, whose duty is to invite people to believe in one God and to stay away from all other gods that mean no idol worshipping, human worshipping shaitan what you call devil worshipping, no, you worship on your one card. And like what you said early, you say that the Prophet does say that 120,000 of profit is been sent on the majority of the name is not been

00:12:50--> 00:13:34

known to, to even the Prophet Mohammed samosa lamb and it was stated in the Quran to the Allah inform our Prophet that there are many prophets that are left saying that his name also Allah did not inform our profits are Muslim. I know the only our profits 120,000 of them. So so from your investigation is possible possible is fine. But over time, people have changed his teachings is just like what happened to the, to the Christianity with Jesus if Jesus He never claimed that he was God, the same thing happened to people. Yeah, but people worshipping him now people are worshipping Him. Yeah, the same thing and what is happening to other people, or the so called cult group, they are

00:13:34--> 00:13:50

worshipping their gurus. They're worshipping their leaders. Yeah, we're all these good people normally, like I'm talking about guatamala. Never in his lifetime. He allowed anybody to worship Him. Never want he claimed that he is God. Neither he denied God.

00:13:51--> 00:14:35

Because he do pray. There's frustration in the teaching of Gautama where can they go now? Someone's a Buddhist, okay. And we are trying to reach out to the whole of humanity because caring is sharing so we're trying to share the truth. So where could they go now to look to to verify some of these things. The best way is they must come back to the Quran. The Quran is the final book. Yes. Without going back to the Quran, then it's not easy for you to know what is right what is wrong or unused, not something new, is here to confirm what was revealed to the early prophets. Gotcha. There is very important there is why is it is a blessing. Yeah, that we Muslim is have the Quran, but is

00:14:36--> 00:14:59

unfortunate. A lot of people who are not yet Muslim, don't have the opportunity to read the Quran. Maybe because most of them do not encourage them to read. Or maybe they are afraid. Yeah. You see there are people that I have some cousins, sisters, who I offer. I see I can read your Bible. Can you read my Quran? That's from the devil?

00:15:00--> 00:15:31

They'll say, Have you heard this? Yeah, something like that. And is it? No, no, no, no, please don't give me a proof. Like because because we will be reminded. And now there is some may be some magic there. Yeah, no crazy. I see. It's just a book. Yeah. I mean, you read every other book. Just read this book. Just be open about it. Yeah. So we believe that if people will open their heart, be sincere buddy. Just read what is written in the Quran, then they will find the truth. There. Islam is not here to tell you that.

00:15:32--> 00:15:41

I mean, Islamic God that we believe Allah, He is not the Lord of the Arabs, or God to a particular nation or tribe.

00:15:42--> 00:16:29

Allah he is he's, he's telling us about himself. He's here. Allah, Allah, Allah mean. Allah is the Creator of the universe. He is not rubble era, or rubble or any other particular nation. Pakistani also, by his trouble, Al amin means the Creator, the sustaining of the universe, of everything and everything. So this is the God of Moses, God of Jesus, gods of Adam, God of Abrahamic God, Buddha. Yeah. God, Buddha. But tell us now let's go back a little bit. So you mentioned Christianity. So you were born into a mother, father, family of Buddhists. And then did you go and become a Christian? Yes. Now talk to us about the How did this happen now? No. You see, when we are young at the time,

00:16:29--> 00:16:37

when we go deeper to the teaching of Gautama teaching of Buddhism, you'll find that there's a lot of Dawn's

00:16:38--> 00:17:19

a lot of don't that mean you go for pure vegetarian example, Buddhists, you know, the meat, no meat, no me. No meat, because now this is not from the teacher of Guatemala. No, this also something Yes. Did additional cultural influence Yes, yes. Because they are very close to Hinduism. Yeah. And now, because even Gautama is from India, yeah. So they have the influence of this vegetarian thing. Of course, they have good intention. They say that, if you eat a lot of meat is very difficult for you to control your desire. Your destructive desire goes the first thing you have five pillars of Islam.

00:17:20--> 00:18:10

Everything is in but it's it's it's it's been distorted. Yeah, it's partially here and there. But we're looking into Islam. Islam cover everything. Yes. That's why we say Islam is a complete thing. Allah Allah, Yama, Mottola patina calm. Today I have perfected this religion for you. hamdulillah. That is how the difference between the early Indian and Islam because Islam is here, to complete and to perfect what is not been perfected before this? Yes. So if you look carefully at the teaching of Guatemala, I mean to be fair to this men, and you will never find anything that is say, against the target or against the pure monotheism one god one God, not three and one 4 million no God, oh God,

00:18:10--> 00:18:33

man, none of this stuff. God having children, none of them no notice of this. And also you see what he was his main teaching is divided into two the sukkah and the Dr. suka suka. suka means glad tiding. Okay, that means good news. Good news. and.com is a warning.

00:18:34--> 00:18:59

A warning if you reject the message? Yes. Now you go back to Islam. Same thing here the same thing that Allah sent the prophets to bring to news bashira one as zero, good news, and bad news. Good news for those who respond and accept the truth that come from one God, the God of every one of us. The bad thing is if you reject

00:19:01--> 00:19:19

that means you choose not to believe in the true God. Yes, it's not good for you of course. Because at the end of the day, like you do not appreciate what Allah Almighty will give you everything in return. You go against him. It's not good for everybody.

00:19:20--> 00:19:22

So suka Endoca. If you look into that,

00:19:23--> 00:19:26

it's just like bashira one zero. Yes.

00:19:27--> 00:19:45

So but because of the there are so many bidder in wofe, two, and the dawn is more than the do it make life very difficult for people who are very young age like we so that was you knocking against me too many rules and regulations. It's not easy. It was tough. It's tough. I mean,

00:19:47--> 00:19:59

no woman at the time, you know, lady, you cannot have any religion with the opposite sex. Yeah. You just isolate yourself. You get close to the Almighty and then you got to learn how

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

How to beg how to be humble. And now they learn how to walk barefoot.

00:20:06--> 00:20:10

All this teaching if you go back to the Quran, even currency will attempt

00:20:12--> 00:21:05

to walk on the earth of the on this land with trying to be humble. How do they teach the people? to be humble? You must take out your shoes. So you can say it's kind of going to an extreme now, let no I'm saying that. They are here to prepare. Yeah. To prepare the people to get ready for the coming revolution. Yeah, it like Moses, prepare his people. Before coming of Jesus. Yeah. And Jesus is preparing his people for the coming of Prophet Mohammed some masala. So that's what of course this is more on the way to prepare people from one stage to another stage. Yeah. And then come to Islam is complete. Okay, let's hold off right there, we got to take another break. We'll be right back

00:21:05--> 00:21:07

with more in a story here on a D show.

00:21:10--> 00:21:15

A single unambiguous treatment. Jesus goes on to say that I am God

00:21:21--> 00:21:49

comes to you the truth and the attribute of the one who created you that he's one and alone, running this universe, that he doesn't become boring, he doesn't die. He doesn't eat and go to the bathroom. This is not God. problems here. Yeah, this This doesn't make sense. Who is Jesus worshipping? This is recorded in the gospels. And despite all of the other issues about the Gospels, we put those aside, we'll just say it's mentioned there that Jesus worship God

00:21:51--> 00:21:52

from hunger.

00:21:57--> 00:22:34

Back here on the deen show is Schick saying ye so now, too many rules. And we're learning a little bit about Buddhism. And we've been enlightened to know that, hey, there's pure monotheism in there, and a lot of similarities to Islam. But now we also see that okay, as a young man, all these rules are not fitting with what you'd want to do. So you move over to what's the next step here? Because I've had that it's against my fitrah Okay, it's also against my nature as a human. There are so many dogs. Yeah, I don't think this is correct. Yes. But who are we to make any comments?

00:22:36--> 00:22:39

Because now all these teaching the so called

00:22:42--> 00:23:29

all this religious teaching is more on tradition. There are a lot of other things in Worf now, it's not easy to go back to the pure teaching of Gautama is it kind of like if you go to one village they doing something different from the other one everyone's changing changing because doing some adjustment here Yeah. So then we we make another hegira to Christianity presenting my my sister they are also very involved in a Christian religion. Okay. So I became a Christian and in Christianity Of course we enjoy life because in Krishna T, almost everything is okay now you can the opposite now you can when we say kick it Yeah, meaning like you can just you know, we're free. You're free now.

00:23:29--> 00:23:58

Just say you believe you believe in the live things. Okay. It's all been taken care. Yeah. You got the JC Gold Card we put it and put it on. He's been stuck for the last so to us we feel that is Oh, this is good. Yeah. This is this is more interesting in life. Yeah, almost. You can do anything you commit sin, you just got to make some confession and then baptized and hamdulillah you're clean again. And you can just go ahead and let your your wit your desires run loose. So this is it now Christianity.

00:23:59--> 00:24:43

We're gonna go ahead. This is a very, very interesting story. And I'm sure you're excited to hear how he came to Islam from Buddhism to Christianity, but you're gonna have to tune in next week for the rest of this show. You think we can continue on with part two insha Allah God willing, so we'll see you same time same channel here on the deen show of share Hussain ease his journey to Islam. Please be aunty Salaam Alaikum. I just want to say very simple message is the link to one of the beautiful things about our religion of Islam is the emphasis on direct ritual and prayer to God directly. There is no intermediary the lights will go on after the party and the party will end.

00:24:44--> 00:24:54

It's very simple and very clear. There are no superstitious rituals, no strange incantations Time's running out. We might not make it till tomorrow. And this is something that we need to think about.

00:24:56--> 00:24:59

is the link to coming to the truth requires

00:25:00--> 00:25:09

Two things. It requires deep thinking that you've already done, but it requires another step. And that's courage. If you have the truth, but you don't have courage, you won't stand up for the truth. And that's as good as standing up for false.

00:25:11--> 00:25:22

I would say this thing that you just told me, it's not in the Scripture, and they would say a marginal note added by a scribe. Yeah, okay, we know that. And I'd be thinking, if you know, this is not the Bible. Why are you preaching it as if it's gospel truth?

00:25:29--> 00:25:52

Bismillah Alhamdulillah Salaam Alaikum. Peace be unto you. I'm at your house. You're watching the deen show. Thank you for tuning in to another exciting episode. Last week, we had a chance to bring you shake hussaini who went from Buddhism to Christianity and we stopped right there. And everybody's excited to hear the rest. So when we come back, you're going to hear the rest here on the D show. Sit tight. Don't go nowhere. This is the thing.

00:26:09--> 00:26:10

This is the

00:26:30--> 00:27:11

Salaam Alaikum share while it comes salam wa rahmatullah wa barakato. Nice to be back again. Nice to have you back again. Thank you for finding the time to be with us here on the deen show. ekala we're out there we're trying to share because we care. And we're trying to help people understand the most misunderstood way of life in the world, yet the fastest growing Islam mission to the one guy yeah, Allah lay the law. And and you came to this realization that this is the truth. And we're trying to because there's Muslims all over even in China. If there was Muslims on the moon, we'd be interviewing them to Allah. So tell us now, just to recap, we talked a little bit about your

00:27:11--> 00:27:26

journey. Your parents were Buddhists now. And you practice that a little bit, then you came to Christianity, just to for the viewers that weren't with us last week, just kind of bring us up to speed bring us up to where we left off, please. Yeah, I'm done. Like I was sharing with you the last

00:27:27--> 00:28:17

meeting about what we learn from Buddhism, and then how we end up making the first hijra from Buddhism to Christianity is there What is that? Hey, J is migration, migration, okay, my Indian debit, we are moving forward, we are going ahead in life that we keep on moving from better to best inshallah, you mentioned the founder of what people attribute to Buddhism. What's his name, again? Gautama. What Tama and he had the good. Yes, he had the book, The Awakening. He was a prince. Yeah, he was a prince. He was going out and trying to get enlightened. Yeah, because he found that something's missing in his life. Yeah, life is not just enjoying happiness, you know? And just all

00:28:17--> 00:29:03

the good life surround, surround you. But there must be more than that. So Life is full of challenges, actually. Yeah. But he was not being exposed earlier. until Allah open his heart. And he was exposed to us to experience some people suffer. Yeah. And that's why you start to look for an answer. And that's why Islam now when it comes to Islam, again, Islam is the answer for everything, even a lot safer in number three, use raw livestock with suffering. And then there will be ease after the suffering, yes. And you will suffer again, there'll be East again, that is life. So we discussed that in part one, how you seeing and being in a Buddhist family, you saw that he did

00:29:03--> 00:29:25

actually believe in one God. Yes. And you talk about that. And then we also talked about that he never called people to worship him or know him as a god or to give him the reverence like god yeah, no, he never claimed God. She never once a claim is neither he denied God. He didn't even deny God didn't deny God might even look in his lifestyle. He worship something.

00:29:26--> 00:29:59

He worship something. And he was talking about Catherine cada in the karma, karma. We talked about karma. That's the destiny. Yeah. And then he talks about sakawa doctor that's what all the other Prophet was glad tidings glad tidings. Yes, if you believe in God, do the good do good deeds. You get paradise Be humble. help the poor out the needies Be kind to people. Yes, be loving, be good for the environment to the animals. This is Islam Islam. submission to the one got quiet peace by submitting to the owner of peace.

00:30:00--> 00:30:40

One guy, he was seemed like he was Yes. living that life. Did this the same teaching? Yeah. And not assessed, right? If you go back to the teaching of when I become a Christian, if you go back the teacher of Jesus is the same, same thing, the same thing. Now, that's what we left off. You were seeing that there was too many restrictions here with the Buddhism's. So now you got me my first migration migration now to Christianity. Santi, Okay, interesting, because you know, being a Christian, everybody will be included. No, you can do almost everything. Yes. So Israel make life very comfortable for you. What is your own desire? What do they say you have to believe? They say

00:30:40--> 00:31:24

that what can you explain a little bit about their teachings? Yeah, it's simple. In Christian they usually believe in Jesus is salvation. You don't have to worry about your future anymore. When you believe in Christ, and then it's okay. Even whatever senior committee you don't have to worry because he's here to save. You know, he is here to have sacrificed crucify his life to save you. So you are a Christian. You believe this? Of course, but it was a Christian thought. Yeah, just beautiful. Yeah. I mean, it's easy. It seemed to be very practical. Yeah. But when you look at the aqeedah you really want to know more about the creed of the Korean Jews in Christianity today. You

00:31:24--> 00:31:59

get very confused now, were you serious? Were you seriously looking for the truth? How was your state at that? Yeah, I mean, no woman I became a Christian. When I look at the teaching is so beautiful at that time. I mean, it's so caring, loving talk about love, love God. love Jesus. Love yourself. Love your neighbor. I mean, it's very interesting. I mean, really moved me. Yeah, as if this teaching is so good. Yeah, the religion of love. I should bring it and share it with my people.

00:32:00--> 00:32:40

That's how I commit myself in the Christian missionary school. And oh, you went to the missionary school? Yeah. Because you are now a layman. You are going to learn about this. So you can share missionary school? Yeah, because I feel that is part of my duty. Now. If something is so good, it's not right. For me to keep it to myself, is too selfish and is bad. Yeah. Good, good message of God. Jesus said that time is I might bring it back to my own community to my friend and tell them come Come, let's come back to God. And worship the true God. There's a there's, there's what I believe at the time. So there's someone challenges believe, how did you come to Islam? Now? How did you How

00:32:40--> 00:33:16

long were you a Christian? for few years, a few years, but I didn't really have any challenges with anybody. But when I want to prepare myself, I got to learn more about I got to go deeper. Because if I start to carry out this mission, is that people ask me, I don't have an answer. Or you wanted to be more knowledgeable. Yeah, it's important to prepare yourself. Yeah. So when I want to prepare myself, then I come across this, this concept of Trinity, Trinity, about God, the Holy Father, the Holy Son, and the Holy Ghost, or you call the Holy Spirit.

00:33:18--> 00:33:23

Okay, trigger me because I don't have it's not easy for me to believe a human

00:33:24--> 00:34:07

can become God. And why must God become a human? Doesn't make sense. It didn't make sense to me. But there is what have you thought that the time is it? Oh, I asked a father to enlighten me. The father said my son, be patient. Let the Holy Ghost come and enlighten you. So I was waiting, waiting. No, no goes come to me. So you got to feel something you got to be visited by the Holy Spirit of the Holy Spirit. Yeah, that's what I was taught. My I was waiting and waiting. And it didn't happen to me at the same time, because when you want to start to carry out this mission, especially I have a lot of Muslim friends. And so said that the Muslims don't invite me to Islam. So I have nothing to

00:34:07--> 00:34:50

do with Islam. I don't know. What about Islam, as seen this religion belong to only to one group of people and not for everybody. Yeah. So then I thought that if Christianity is true, Jesus is God. And these people don't believe that Jesus God, I think I want to share with them this beautiful religion. Now that's like you You feel like if they don't accept this, they'll go to hell. Yeah. Yes. We believe in that. Because that's the only salvation we hear the blood of Jesus blood of Jesus, that God committed suicide actually to save you. Yeah. It's a good thing. Not to me at that time is good. So I want to share this good thing with my fellow brothers a friend. And then before

00:34:50--> 00:35:00

that, I need to equip myself learn something about Islam. Yeah, I didn't learn through the Muslim because I want to carry the

00:35:00--> 00:35:05

Mission, this message of Jesus to them so I got to get myself prepared.

00:35:06--> 00:35:50

And this is the work of a lie of God. This is part of a last quarter I read the book of Satan Omar, I was not allowed to read the Quran because, you know, in the 60s, no Muslim don't give you a Quran you say you are not a Muslim. You cannot hold the Quran. You cannot read the Quran. So what can we do? Yeah, so we have the opportunity to read the book of Satan. Omar in the second leaf. So this is one of the companions of the last and final messages sent and that kind of problem is, you know, so you got a hold of this book. Yes. And let's take a break right there. And we'll continue on in Sharla, shall we right back on the deen show. He is born about 60 years ago in former Yugoslavia,

00:35:50--> 00:36:14

today's bosnia at the Second World War. And imagine today you have one child too much. It's important that we realize that Islam is a gift. So we believe that in the teachings of Jesus what is left there is truth in that mean? He is the result the truth has been mixed up with paganism and with nature worship and so Islam has given you a pure straightforward way of approaching monotheism.

00:36:20--> 00:36:21

I am not afraid to say

00:36:24--> 00:36:26

I am not afraid to stand alone.

00:36:28--> 00:36:30

I am not afraid to say

00:36:37--> 00:36:38

I'm not afraid.

00:36:40--> 00:36:42

I'm not afraid.

00:36:45--> 00:36:46

I'm not afraid.

00:36:54--> 00:37:35

Peace be on TV. Welcome back to the deen show, we share who's saying ye and now you didn't get a hold of the Quran, which is the verbatim Word of God now. Now, let's just take a side note. This is wrong, isn't it? Because we as Muslims, we need to be sharing the Qur'an, the meaning at least with the people? Did they have the meaning the translation of the crown back they do have they do have but they were still holding off? Yeah, because they will. They were taught to believe that this holy book of the Muslim the Quran is only for Muslims. Then no Muslim have the right to touch even the trash. So that's what they were taught. What do you say about this? Of course before I do have any

00:37:35--> 00:37:49

comment I I don't know what is the real teacher of Islam. But later on when it came to Islam I found that is very wrong for him to do that. Because Allah Himself confirm in his book in the Quran, shatta Ramadan and

00:37:51--> 00:37:52

put the leniency

00:37:53--> 00:38:03

on it a man of Ramadan Allah revealed this book as a divine guidance for mankind mankind, not just the Arab, the Arab,

00:38:04--> 00:38:09

Chinese, the wider the black for everybody, everybody. hamama

00:38:10--> 00:38:22

Can you see how beautiful the book of Allah is? That this divine guidance of Ummah is for humanity for mankind? Yes. And it's very sad that the Muslim have failed

00:38:23--> 00:39:00

to act upon this ayah Yeah, they thought that this was only an hour's work hour, you can have nothing to do if you're stingy now Yeah, guys to to share. Sharing is caring. So now you don't get a hold of the verbatim Word of God the Quran, but you get a hold of another piece of Islamic literature. So what happens here on hamdulillah after read and then is lost he die? Of course. Now you said two Arabic words. So they don't think the natya of Muslims. I don't think we're seeing some code words here. You said 100. And he died. What do you say and I have the lamb in our prayers to Allah for the guidance above given me a Daya is guidance. And you said a lot. They might think it's

00:39:00--> 00:39:51

a moon, God knows Allah. Allah is a creator. He is a God to everything. Okay, so this is not the sun of the moon, but the creator of the sun rays of the sun. Okay, good. Sorry, please go ahead. So when I read the life history of Omar, who was once the enemy of Islam, and now he is known for his, his bravery, and then he has beaten me and he was so determined to kill the Prophet. This is a man who you're reading this book, Omar. He's the companions of Prophet he was an enemy to Islam. Yes, yes, of course. And later on, he was exposed to the deuteron. And he heard the recitation of Surah Taha by his brother in law, and among give hedaya and then he became a Muslim. While so this is an enemy

00:39:51--> 00:39:59

of Islam, like many people, now, they don't know Islam. So maybe just because they're following what the media is saying. So now they're having this hatred, enmity.

00:40:00--> 00:40:15

He was one of those people and then when he came to the Quran himself didn't read them would have got, he got guidance, he got enlightened. And he accepted Islam accepted. So you read this story and what has danesi on this Quran must be very powerful. So if this Quran can change this man,

00:40:16--> 00:40:53

I think this grant can change me. Wow. See, I have that kind of feeling now. Yes, I see. And then I started to learn more and more. What the What Omar is starting to become the colleague, the second colleague, the Tao hate in Oman, how he was taught by Prophet Muhammad to believe in one God one one just no buts. After that just one leave it alone. Let shuriken Don't play with it. No, one one and that's because of that. Omar was given the title by the prophet summon Salaam Alfaro allowing

00:40:54--> 00:41:10

a man who really distinguish the true the right and the wrong from distinguishing right or wrong for no playing enemy. Yeah. He's a man of his word. To the extent that the prophecy wherever Omar move,

00:41:12--> 00:41:42

every place that he walked, the Satan will run away. Yes, because the burning flame of a man and a man that will not compromise will not tolerate with any form of shearing, no setting of partners of God whatsoever Allah, God alone worship just him. So when I look at this lifestyle, say Allah so simple, it's so straightforward. And it's so easy for me to accept that God cannot be like any one of us.

00:41:44--> 00:41:45

And God cannot

00:41:46--> 00:41:49

be, be be a form of anything.

00:41:50--> 00:41:51

by himself.

00:42:07--> 00:42:41

Allah is what a lot of summon everything depend on him. Nami La la la la, la de he is a father to anybody or child to anybody while I'm Nicola who cufon. Nothing is equal to him. You got you have children if you don't want me asking? Yes, of course. And and you have sons, and daughters. Yes. But now God doesn't have any of these similarities. No, no, you believe this before? Didn't you as a Christian that God had a son? Yes. Okay. That's what we were taught. Yeah. But of course it it makes your thing how are

00:42:42--> 00:42:44

you sure, you know, can

00:42:45--> 00:42:56

God be assigned to somebody? And then he become the Father Himself? Because you're looking at your son, he's gonna grow up to have the qualities like his father's. But then did you think sometimes Well, that's gonna that's two gods that isn't it?

00:42:57--> 00:43:19

They're sure to have to. Yeah. And I have quite, it's not easy. It's confusing. I'm jealous now because we're going to get confused and confuse everybody allow. So you get unconfused. And you come into Islam, which is simply the call to acquire peace by submitting to the one God. So what happens now, the more and learn about Islam, the more I read the Quran

00:43:20--> 00:44:09

Lera Fie. There is the end. That means there is no doubt that Quran is the truth. It's simple, is simple, rational, rational, all your questions are answered on purpose of life. Alhamdulillah where you go when you die, everything is clear. It's clear, no ambiguity, too near aka, not wanting to talk about your religion with God, but also about your religion with this world, with the environment with the people around you. Beautiful. That's why we believe now that everybody who still don't understand Islam and hit the Muslim if they hate the Muslim because they look at the Muslim who show good bad example. Of course, there is their right to hate anything that is bad. But

00:44:09--> 00:44:11

we hope that they are just to themselves.

00:44:13--> 00:45:00

just opened the just read rate, yeah, with an open heart open mind and then be adjust to yourself. You be your own judge. We are not here to judge anybody. We're here to share with them to tell them that this holy divine book of a law Alexandre Karim is for them. So we hope that they will read you know open mind open heart, then they will understand Yeah, we Muslim here to promote hatred. No. Are we here to terrorize people? No. Are we here to kill? No. We are here to save humanity. We are here to share with them. We are calling them they and we are praying for them. Bye

00:45:00--> 00:45:09

May Allah open your heart, and I'm sure if people will start to open the Quran, don't just Islam to the people please.

00:45:11--> 00:45:35

You get confused. That's why when I talk to my family members, my sibling who are not yet Muslim, if you said the Muslim, I bet I have no comment. Maybe sometimes you find that Muslim, like you have bad Christian, bad, Buddhist, bad this bad, you have bad and ugly everywhere. If they said Muslims are bad, I have no comment.

00:45:36--> 00:45:50

But if they say Islam is bad, I will not allow that to happen. Because it's not right for them to comment about Islam when they do not know anything about Islam. So I will say please read the book of Allah.

00:45:52--> 00:46:31

Islam is not Muslim is that people? Islam is the teaching. And people make mistakes. People have made mistakes. Yeah, but Islam is perfect. Islam is perfect from the cradle. Let's take a break there we right back here on the D show. One God wish to come alone, do what he wants you to do. Put your desires this thing inside you that just wants this and wants that and you just can't get enough. You know what you never get enough until the dirts in your mouth. Don't let it come to that be sincere and honest as the one who created you to guide us the first step hold on chasing all the women and the good times and the parties and this and that there's no one worthy of worship except a

00:46:31--> 00:46:34

lot. Don't wait. You never know this would come today for you.

00:46:40--> 00:47:13

Back here on the deen show with shake who's saying ye now we got a few more minutes and I have so much to ask you. But so little time. So in brief tell us. So you actually you accepted to tell us just a moment. Now what happened? Okay, you learn this? And then what did you do? What did you have to say? Do? Did you have to go get dipped in a pool to become a Muslim? Did you have to do some weird stuff? What did you have to do now to become one who has submitted to God, a Muslim like Jesus, Moses, Abraham, they were all Muslims. They were the ones who submitted to the will of God, what did you have to do now on hamdulillah after become Muslim, and I certainly know that this

00:47:13--> 00:47:59

teaching is so simple, and is easy to understand. And the creed is so clear cut, the tower height is very clear. kohala who say there's what God, one God one good finish. And all human. You have prophets of God, the good people, their Prophet, their messengers. Then I found that I am going to learn more about this Deen before I start my mission again, because I love to share by nature and love to share whatever I have, and like to share with others. So that's why I get involved in the circle of studying Islam is this after you took Shahada that says yes, so tell us tell us that what did you have to do? What did you say to become a Muslim? It's so simple is that when I met up with

00:47:59--> 00:48:37

the one of the Imam in the malls, I have assure him, I tell him I have the intention to be a Muslim. And then he said no probably going to be a Muslim. Just make Shahada. What is the law in the law? Why should one no Mohammed Rasul Allah, make a declaration of faith they call it saying that I declare from today, there is nanavati to be worship except Allah alone. The one God, the one God, and the Prophet Muhammad is the last messenger of Allah. That's the same in Aramaic. Jesus said, Allah Ha. So it's the same guy, the same guy. So if you were living during the time of Jesus, it's safe to say that you would say the same thing except Jesus was the messenger Dampier. Ahmed is the

00:48:37--> 00:48:45

messenger now. Yes, and Jesus also is the every prophet there is a title given to them. Yes, like Prophet,

00:48:46--> 00:49:29

Abraham kalila law, your Prophet Moses, kalama law, Prophet Jesus, or rohilla say these, these names that you just say this title given by God, friend of a friend, different friend of God, yeah, kalila ma moussaka. llaman, the one who spoke to God, one who spoke to Moses and the one who was born without the father, that Jesus He says, Be Upon peace be upon him Prophet Muhammad Rasul Allah, that means the messenger messenger God, so you declare that there's no God worthy of worship except Allah. Mohammed is the messenger. Now you're a Muslim? Yes, you actually went on to study because it's interesting. The more you studied these other manmade faiths, you saw the contradictions. You

00:49:29--> 00:49:59

saw the ambiguity didn't make sense. The more you studied Islam, you saw that it was from the divine and you went on to become an Islamic scholar. This is amazing. You want to study and you got learned, and now you're teaching and preaching Islam to the world. Yes, it's important because knowledge is life. without knowledge, that's why we are here. We believe that we like to have more open dialogue with so called intellectual. Yeah, who are not yet Muslim. Because we believe that there's no compulsion in religion.

00:50:00--> 00:50:18

no compulsion urges, nobody can force you. Yes, but it is good for so called intellectual scholars. in any field. If you want to talk about Islam, you inviting them come have them come to the mosque. They welcome someone sticking out there. They say, you know what, these are the people who caused the 911. What do you got to say about that?

00:50:19--> 00:50:39

We all know. We have no no comment about it, because it's the what the media says this has nothing to do anything to do with Islam. As a Muslim, we don't believe that. The Muslims should get involved in this kind of mistake of killing innocent people is again the teaching of Islam. Did you just hear that? This is clear? Yes.

00:50:40--> 00:51:25

This is no killing. No innocent. We are here to say women children. No, no, no. So this is foreign to Islam yet. Okay. So now I'm sure they're not yet Muslim, he can relax a little bit. And maybe he can start to take more of the same because this is something a programming at the media tries to vilify Islam and make people a little more skilled. So pray me, the people involved in the media. Be fair to all of us, to be fair to the Muslim because if you want to know more about Islam, you must ask the Muslim scholars. Yes. Don't ask us anybody who don't have any sound foundation about Islam. It's not right. It's not been fair. We believe this reporter this media, they are good people. Yes.

00:51:25--> 00:52:12

We only asked them to be fair to us. I learned from you. I remember you abbreviate Islam says love all mankind long one, but do you understand that what is lm? I shall love all mankind. We want the best for everybody. Don't wait. So tell them you got 30 seconds, give them the message of Islam. Give them your closing comments and advice please. We like to call all the brothers and sisters while following this program. Number one, please try to understand the difference between Islam and Muslim is important. If you have the right understanding, then you know what is now and what is the Muslim? And also the second thing you must understand about religion and tradition.

00:52:14--> 00:52:25

The teaching of religion is so beautiful, but when you involve tradition, of course you get confused. And lastly also you must different between the nation

00:52:26--> 00:52:27

and religion.

00:52:29--> 00:53:20

Yeah, religion belong to God. nation he can come there's no different and Islam belong to all people that make Islam belong to the black to the white to the Chinese to everybody. It's not only a religion for the Arabs, and the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam remind us as Muslim number one, I hope our Muslim people also understand the spirit of this religion is a yohannes in Arabic Why? We're in a back Why couldn't look at them or add them in Torah. The Prophet was talking to his oma on the Muslim, but the way he addressed them, he remind them by saying, Are you gonna wait and he said, All Muslim, or jazz, or Forgive me She said, I ohana that means the Prophet, one his oma to

00:53:20--> 00:53:25

understand the message of Islam is for humanity for all mankind, not only for the Muslim.

00:53:27--> 00:54:16

Indeed your God is only one this Allah, whether you believe in him or not, itself is yours, you choose, but there's only one God. And all of you came from one family from one Father, all of you from Adam and Adam from soil, or from clay. And then the best among you the prophesy is those who have piety, not because of your color, your name, but because of your faith in Allah. So we hope insha Allah this uniphyl was a message of Islam will benefit this ummah, this human will benefit all the nation, and we will have more peace and more understanding by having the right understanding about Islam. read the Quran with an open mind and open heart. If you don't have a copy of the Quran,

00:54:17--> 00:54:59

you can contact us you can contact the deen show inshallah. We believe that we are ready to share with you and send you a copy of the Quran. So we will keep on praying for all of you who are still far away from Allah. Only Allah can give hidayah to whom he please and we hope that Allah subhanho wa Taala will give us peace within ourselves, our family, our neighbor, and May Allah give peace to the world. I mean by saying La ilaha illa Allah, Muhammad Rasul Allah, and we become Muslim and Muslim is a person who believe in peace. That is why

00:55:00--> 00:55:52
