Yesterday, in the age of 42, he passed away Muhammad was so I'd rather not be remembered as an addict and an alcoholic who put his family through hell. I don't know why, but I'm quite moved to be honest. Because

00:00:18--> 00:00:27

it really shows how sad these people are not that convicted racist politician who is notorious for his so called cron burning tours, and then his car flipped over.

Just because it brings peace to your soul and peace to your heart, it is the truth. You're trying to build a data center here, Islam is violent.

00:00:42--> 00:01:03

If a Christian goes and kills a bunch of Muslims, you're gonna blame every Christian for it. Well, you're gonna blame for it. First Samuel 15 Three, he ended up putting the Quran to the test. You moved for the test for suitability in the Islam. So film often I've made lots to bond on, I became much more happy after I became Muslim. I would like to invite everybody to become Muslim

00:04:44--> 00:04:59

masha Allah Alhamdulillah you bring him back so many memories before we start talking about the Quran burner. Before we start talking about some of these other current things that are going on that I want to get your feedback from. You're bringing back a lot of memories, memories, good memories. I'm thinking about you. I'm looking at you and I'm thinking about Bosnia

00:05:00--> 00:05:04

Yes, we're together. We're eating. We're having some lunch, my father's there.

00:05:06--> 00:05:08

How was your experience in Bosnia?

00:05:10--> 00:05:56

It was a very good experience. Actually, it was a very positive experience. I mean, obviously, I love engaging with you as always, but the art that were there, the brothers that were there who wanted to share Islam, with hikma with wisdom with hacer una was good preaching. They were there, they wanted to be touched, moved, inspired, so they can call humanity with that wise, compassionate goodness. And I was just given the opportunity by Allah subhanaw taala, to engage with the dog to learn from them as well, but also engage with them so we could uplift each other. And as you know, the Bosnian space, the social political space is not an easy one, it brings sad memories, because we

00:05:56--> 00:06:36

will remember what happened. And I think it's very important for us to engage in this type of work, because the beautiful thing about calling people to Islam, there's many layers to it. Of course, you want to make Allah's with the highest, you want people to go to Jannah you want people to be guided, but there are so many layers to the dollar. And one aspect of this, especially when it comes to social political realities, is that you could bring people together. Allah says in the Quran that He created us from a male and a female, and he basically created us into different tribes and nations in order for us to know one another, the two out of four to know one another. And it was interesting

00:06:36--> 00:07:25

here, if you look at the classical exegesis, the classical explanation of this verse, many scholars explained that this does not mean trying to find out what makes you common. It means find out what makes you different. Find out what makes you distinct. And why is that important? Think about it from a social perspective. Fear happens, anxiety happens, all of these things happen, because there are differences. But once you explain the differences, Lita Adolpho, you explain the differences you give it, a, a humanity, if you like you give it give the truth behind these differences. Those differences no longer become sources of fear or anxiety, but they become sources of getting to know

00:07:25--> 00:08:03

one another and coming together in different tribes and nations in groups. Hopefully, those people do become Muslim. If they don't, it leads it lessens the anxiety and the fear. So from a Bosnian context, we don't want that to ever happen again. And one way there are many ways, but one way of trying to ensure it doesn't happen again. And what happened in Bosnia in the 1990s, is actually to engage in dour because there's that sense of Lita out of that sense of getting to know one another to remove those anxiety in those fears. Yes, hey, is always gonna hate, you're gonna have those ideologues you're gonna have those nationalists are gonna have those people who don't want Muslims

00:08:03--> 00:08:41

and humanity to flourish. But we have to do our role. And I think engaging in Dawa facilitates that Sharla then you reminded me, you were talking about the trees? And then I went back and researched that, and you are dead on? There has been a lot of research on the actual communication between trees. Yes. And then we had that's reminding me of the conversation that we had. Well, yes, you remind me, do you remember that? And you pointed to a specific book? And yes, that's that you were talking about the communication between the tree and then it reminded us of the Hadith where the prophet saw something and talked about because some people get caught up on this command, how

00:08:41--> 00:09:19

countries speak. And there's modern day research on this. And you actually, you were articulating that in our last discussion there in Bosnia. Yeah, there was a book, it's cooled. If I remember correctly, the hidden life of trees. And trees actually communicate in their own way with each other. And they almost like living communities. And there's a sense of tree altruism, like trees will sacrifice themselves for other trees. And it's quite interesting, because I always ask people, are you a beach person? Are you a forest person? And me, I'm more of a forest person because it's alive. You know, trees are communicating trees are living in communities and they're sharing,

00:09:19--> 00:09:59

they're communicating. And for me, you get a sense of that, you know, so there is something in the tree huggers. You know, you have these these hippies you have trees, obviously, we don't do it for you know, should have key reasons, but there's a sense of energy when it comes to trees, right. And we know the famous Hadith of the prophets of salaam with the narration the story with a tree, she cried. Yeah, so that is not far fetched. Especially we look at today's research and what's interesting when a group of community are trees are together, and there's an animal that basically by so takes the leaf of one of the trees that tree will send it like a gas signal to the other trees

00:09:59--> 00:09:59

and

00:10:00--> 00:10:40

Those trees will make the leaves more bitter. So the animals will be repelled. It's very fascinating. So there's so much in that. Okay, so getting from the blast from the past, you remind me of really good memories. I really, really enjoyed being with you. So to my father, and tell me this, okay, so as I opened up, you eat Greek food. You speak Greek, you're Greek. And you know, with the history of Bosnia, also in that area there, Bosnia is like the, they say, the Jerusalem of Europe. And there's been some tensions over the years. So you would think someone from a Greek background, your story is out there, people can go ahead and look it up. But just for the people

00:10:40--> 00:10:49

tuning in for the very first time, and they're seeing Hamza there as sources, and he's writing books on Islam. I mean, these are not anti Islam books, are they?

00:10:50--> 00:10:51

No, no think.

00:10:52--> 00:11:36

But you would think but there's a lot of Greeks not just yourself. So your your Muslim Greek? Yeah. Is that correct? What did it for you just real real briefly, then we'll get into the the other things we want to talk about? Yeah, I mean, I became Muslim around 22 years ago, I believe, in 2002. And so 21 years ago, 22 years ago, and Alhamdulillah became Muslim for three main reasons. Number one, Islam made sense to me, it satisfies my heart, it satisfied my mind. Number two, I really appreciate the Brotherhood in Islam. That sense of brotherhood that transcended nation transcended blood, if you like, very close brotherhood. And number three, I was attracted to many Islamic

00:11:36--> 00:12:16

values. So those are the three main reasons beautiful, so we got it made sense the Brotherhood and the values. And we often say that if these people would go ahead and pick up the Koran, and they would put it to truly, sincerely put it, you know, implemented into their lives, they wouldn't end up it's a sad reality that many people like these we're going to talk about, and we want good for them. Also, we want, we have love for humanity. And we want them to go ahead and experience what we are experienced. So they don't end up like these people taking their own lives. So I want to get into this, this recent one actually, we'll start off from which I talked about before, because this

00:12:16--> 00:12:59

seems a common trend. And I just someone just shared with me this recent some tick talker before we get it to him. He was also someone who was insulting Prophet Muhammad and Islam. There was this, this individual and then it's like a pattern. You could see their lives just unfolding in front of us. Let's stop with this and get your reaction and we'll go one by one. They get depressed, and they don't want to live anymore. And in the end, they take their own life Cisco Ron burner in the picture. It's a Quran burner that is living in Norway. Yesterday, in the age of 42, he passed away. This picture on the screen is from the 26th of November, when he was trying to destroy our Dawa

00:12:59--> 00:13:28

stands in Oslo in Norway. They get depressed and they don't want to live anymore. And in the end, they take their own life system of the chat between Swedish Danish politician Rasmus peladon, and young boys on the internet. The convicted racist politician who is notorious for his so called cron burning tours and anti Islam hate spends extensive time on social media platform discord, chatting with young boys about sexually explicit topics.

00:13:33--> 00:14:08

to 4 million members normally, although polygon has been charged with 14 offenses in the past, including racism, defamation and traffic laws, his online chats did not elicit any action under Danish law. Okay, before we get into the new current ones, what do you think what's unpackage? What's going through your mind? When you see, we talked about what drew you to Islam? The values, right, this moral code? What kind of moral code do you think that people are living by and what's driving them at the end, to take their own lives or to go down this road of you know, trying to pick up young boys?

00:14:09--> 00:14:12

You know, I don't know why, but I'm quite moved to be honest.

00:14:15--> 00:14:59

Because it just shows a few things. Number one, the power of the Quran, and it shows, it really shows how sad these people are. Now, there's a very beautiful ayah in the Quran in the 20th chapter, in the 120/4 verse, Allah says, But whoever turns away from my reminder, will certainly have a miserable life. And then we will raise them up blind on the Day of Judgment. Now, many people may know and if you don't know let's explain this. What does the reminder mean according to the Mufasa reign, which means those classical orthodox scholars that explain the Quran, also known as exegesis, they do exegesis. They explain the Quran

00:15:00--> 00:15:47

The reminder is another name for the Quran. So this is so powerful, but whoever turns away from my reminder, meaning the Quran itself will certainly have a miserable life, then we'll raise them up blind on the day of judgment. And this is very fascinating because if you think about this surah itself, right, the beginning of the Surah, what does Allah say in the second verse, he says, we have not revealed the Quran to you or prophet to cause you distress. In other words, you can mirror the meaning that Allah has revealed the Quran to bring a sense of sadness, a sense of happiness. And but if you go all the way down 224 Verse 124, Allah says, Those who reject the reminder the Quran

00:15:47--> 00:16:04

itself, they will have a miserable life will lay, this is so powerful. I mean, it goes to show those people who hate the Quran, basically is a form of self hatred. Let me explain something I let this from a scholar once you will find yourself in the Quran.

00:16:05--> 00:16:58

Brothers, sisters, friends, humanity, you will find yourself in the Quran. In reality, you don't read the Quran, the Quran reads you. And you will find yourself in the Quran. And you have to really check your heart to understand if you're approaching this book with sincerity with with a yearning for for the Creator, or is it to find something negative or to impose your own ego and your own negativity, because many of these people that pointed the finger at the Quran, the three there are three fingers pointing back, this politician he was caught doing things with or expressing himself in an inappropriate, inappropriate, inappropriate way with young children. This other I think

00:16:58--> 00:17:43

Norwegian fellow who was burning the Quran or Danish fellow, he actually committed suicide, right? He's pointing the finger at the Quran that it's destructive, it's there's no guidance, but look at his life. And this is very interesting, because in the third chapter of the Quran, in verse seven, Allah talks about the ambiguous verses, and the unambiguous verses meaning the verses that have potentially multiple interpretations are the open to interpretation. And the verses that are very clear. And Allah tells us gives us advice to stick to those verses that are very clear. They're the mother of the book, the foundation of the book, we understand the whole Quran through these verses.

00:17:43--> 00:18:28

And Allah warns us the more ambiguous type of verses, people who have a sickness in the heart are going to try and do some kind of interpretation, this sickness is going to come out in a way. So from that perspective, when people approached the Quran, and they're already sick, they're already full of hatred, then they would find themselves in the Quran, they would find themselves in the Quran, they won't find a valid interpretation, but they would find themselves because that's the nature of the book of Allah, it can guide you or could be a source of your Miss guidance as well, because you are the one who has closed the door to guidance, you have pushed away the guidance and

00:18:28--> 00:19:10

you are rejecting the message of Islam in its clear form. Because the just like Allah says in chapter three, verse seven, that they're trying to twist and do dodgy interpretations of the ambiguous verses, right? So from that perspective, my kind of theory is you would find yourself in the Quran. And you see that in these people, they point fingers at the Quran, they say the Quran is full of, you know, dark things because they don't have a true understanding. And they don't interpret the Quran the way the Quran tells them to understand the Quran, which is to see through the eyes or through the lenses of the clear, unambiguous verses, and you see things far more

00:19:10--> 00:19:52

holistically and you see the picture, not just a pixel. And from that perspective, I think this just shows to us how powerful the book of Allah subhanaw taala is, these people are sick people, and they have found they have imposed the sickness on the Quran, and it's bounced back on them as Allah says in chapter 20, verse one to four, that if you reject this reminder, you're gonna have a miserable life and look what they're doing. They're doing inappropriate things or saying inappropriate things with young children and or they're committing suicide or they're having a depressed life. And Allah says they're going to be raised blind on the day of judgment on the Day of Resurrection. And may

00:19:52--> 00:19:59

Allah protect us, you know, and it was interesting as well, Eddie, the burning books. I mean, isn't this what you know back

00:20:00--> 00:20:01

quid medieval people used to do.

00:20:02--> 00:20:53

What's right. And then you know, the irony is the framing as if this is freedom of speech. Yeah. How they're framing it, freedom of speech, but, and they're forgetting the own tradition, because the objectives of freedom of speech, as John Stuart Mill said, one of the famous British philosophers, the main objective of freedom of speech was human flourishing. In other words, we want truth, we want to account hold, power to account, we want progress, scientific progress, how does burning a book facilitate truth? How does burning a book allow progress? How does burning a book, you know, it gives you civilizational advancement This is not freedom of speech. This is uncivilized behavior.

00:20:54--> 00:21:36

And this is what we need to tell people you need to read the Quran not burn the Quran. So you could be elevated you could be guided you could progress as a civilization. And it's the mark of a defeated civilization that they actually celebrate burning religious texts. This is it this is be honest, it is the mark is the sign of a defeated civilization if they celebrate and protect the burning of books. And this goes against the main objectives of freedom of speech anyway, which were about human flourishing was about progress, scientific advancement, and burning books does not facilitate that at all.

00:21:37--> 00:21:42

I like what you said self hatred, or projecting of what's in you have people with,

00:21:43--> 00:22:19

with dark hearts, and that they're talking about there's darkness and in the Quran, but then you see this darkness in their hearts, and they're trying to end up projecting it out where the from what's within. Let's go on here. I know you also you're pretty into boxing. And recently, again, we don't condone any violence or harming anybody. But this was something that was that came up with another crop burner, I wanted to get your feedback, because you'd like to throw a nice jab and hook cross. So I don't know if you've had any comments on this but.

00:23:00--> 00:23:13

Seems like this is another cron burner that that popped up? And then somebody put on some boxing gloves and challenged him I guess to to a one on one fight? What were your thoughts on that?

00:23:15--> 00:23:53

Well, well, I don't know what to say. I mean, I just came from the back from the gym about an hour or so ago, I did about seven rounds on the on the back. So it's quite interesting. You mentioned that so I mean, I don't know the context. That person was a cran burner. The other person seems to be a Muslim and he wants to take some kind of revenge or he wants to basically hold him to account. But one thing is is quite interesting that the guy who has been the Quran, you know, he can't it doesn't look like he could fight tool. Second, he tried to pick up a weapon like a coward does one thing I want to mention. The second thing is look, in our context, we have to understand that our so

00:23:53--> 00:24:12

Allah says in the Quran in chapter 16, verse 124 125, or Elizabeth rhombic, call to the Seville the way of your Lord, how Allah says hikma with Hekmati with wisdom, and preach in what in the best way with goodness Hassan. This is very important.

00:24:13--> 00:24:59

Allah doesn't say call to the word, your load with the aim. With knowledge, he says with hikma because what is hikma? He quit. Yes means the Sunnah. But broadly, it also means from an Islamic perspective that you have a goal that is pleasing to Allah, and you apply your ailment, your knowledge in a particular context to achieve that goal. This is very deep. I want everyone to listen to this. hikma is you have a goal that is pleasing to Allah and you apply your in your knowledge and you apply in a particular context to achieve that goal. And hasna goodness also includes s and excellence. A class and security includes being merciful

00:25:00--> 00:25:18

And it includes doing the right thing in the right way, which sometimes means you have to be assertive. Now, in our context of the Quran burning, we have to understand what our goal is, as a community in Europe, what the context is and how we apply it in that context. And I would say,

00:25:19--> 00:25:58

this type of person instead of us showing any type of aggression, because that's what they want from us. They want us to be aggressive. They want us to show violence, they want to provoke us, but we have to have a sense of elevated standard in this context, him what is Him, him is one of the characteristics of the Prophet Muhammad SAW Salam, and hit it means forbearance, being patient with aggression, being patient with negativity, being patient with hatred, because Allah says in the Quran, in Surah facilite, chapter 41, verse 33, and 34. Allah says in verse 33, call to the way of your Lord,

00:25:59--> 00:26:04

call the who is sorry, who is best in speech than the one who

00:26:06--> 00:26:36

calls to the way of the Lord, the one who called to tell heed, the one who calls to the Oneness of Allah does righteousness and says, I am one of those who submit That's verse 33, versus a four beautiful verse, this is the vessel of Helm of forbearance. Good and evil are not the same. Good and evil are not the same. Repel by that which is better. And between two people, if there's any hatred, it will turn to intimate friendship.

00:26:37--> 00:27:18

And this is difficult except for the patient. Interestingly, in the Arabic here, Allah doesn't use the Arabic word repel, and he doesn't so he uses the word Arabic repel, and it's not followed by a direct object. Allah doesn't say repel evil is open ended repelled by that which is better than the aroma. The scholars, they say, repenting by that which, which is better means repelling by what is more beautiful, and what is more virtuous, in this context, in our our ideological context and the context of Europe in the context that they want us to look like the evil Batman or the aggressive man, we need to now have him forbearance, and we need to repel by that which is more beautiful. And

00:27:18--> 00:27:57

by that which is more virtuous, in this context, and between two peoples any hatred, it will tend to intimate friendship. And this is what we need to do in that particular context. So I don't condone brothers going out there putting boxing gloves on, and basically, you know, trying to attack this guy, what we should do is show a sense of him just like the Prophet SAW Salem, if you remember the famous Hadith, the prophetic tradition, when the Jewish man came to prefer some he pulled him by the collar or the neck, and he demanded for repayment of a loan and one Sahabi companion was acting a bit assertively aggressively. And the way the prophets of Allah or ILA who was on reacted was with

00:27:57--> 00:28:44

him and forbearance, he gave advice to the companion to basically come down, and he told me, and he told him, You should basically advise this man to ask for his repayment, the repayment of a loan in a better way. And upon seeing this, the Jewish man became Muslim, because he was looking for the three signs of Prophethood he sought to the signs, and the final sign was forbearance hidden meaning that we forbear we repel aggression, we repel aid hatred, with who is more virtuous, and what is more better. And what is more beautiful, and that's how we should be in the context of the hour. Yes, okay, fine. I do understand where the brother coming from. He's probably frustrated. He's

00:28:44--> 00:29:26

angry. But remember, what does Allah say this is very difficult except for the patient, though. So we should encourage, cultivate that patients. have Taqwa have God consciousness, hold on to the Quran, hold on to the Sunnah, and deal with these people in the most Allah centric way meaning what is the goal that we're trying to achieve? Remember Tao is by ACMA, and Allah pleasing goal. And Allah centric goal, we apply our in our knowledge in the particular context that we're engaging with, and in a European context, with Islamophobia, with the liberal hegemony, with the ideological forces against the Muslims, as being minorities and all of these things, it's time for us to hold on

00:29:26--> 00:30:00

sort of hold on to sort of facilite chapter 41 versus day 24 Quarter Allah with righteousness. See, we're one of the Muslims, we're one of those who submit and we repel anything, but that which is better, and between two people than any hatred, or attend to intimate friendship, and that's what we should be focused on in our particular context or moving along. So before we get into this one, so had the person who had his car flipped over he got into a chase, right? I don't know if you saw that one. That clip. were the one who was coming to the to the brothers they're in Norway and they

00:30:00--> 00:30:05

A woman, they came up next to him, and they started chasing them. And then his car flipped over

00:30:10--> 00:30:34

before his car actually flipped, you remember that one? Just like why? What are you trying to accomplish at the end? I like what you said, what brought you to Islam and made sense. The Brotherhood, the values, there's, there's a gift that the Creator is giving you. You have this book instead of burning it, open it, read it, sit with the Muslims, a whole new

00:30:37--> 00:30:37

join.

00:30:41--> 00:31:06

And the next one in line is there is no gods. Muhammad was a warlord. He did not speak to God. He was a bad man. I'd rather not be remembered as an addict and an alcoholic who put his family through hell. But unfortunately, that's also part of me, an atheist tick Talker by the name of Vaughn vindi, whose real name is Joe

00:31:07--> 00:31:53

died after committing suicide The Tick Tock or who insulted the Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him he released a short video saying he was an addict and an alcoholic who put his family through hell before taking his own life or condolence to the family. So what can we say you see a consistency a trend here, the people who end up going down this path are people who end up usually, like in these cases, taking their own lives, they're unhappy. They're involved in many things that are just destroying them from within, then they end up projecting that. And then they do a lot of these wicked and evil. Things like insulting over 2 billion people. Why would you do that?

00:31:54--> 00:32:42

If you're unhappy with yourself, and you're not able to figure out the purpose of life while you're being creative. While you're here. You're miserable, happy person is projecting these good, good energy, but his unhappy person who's miserable for then he's not trying to change the world for the better himself. You see what he's doing make a mockery of himself. And while he's insulting to over 2 billion people, like we said, so Hamza sources with us, we have some little technical difficulty here. It was great having you on the program, my brother Shala, we're gonna have to continue. Again, we lost you there due to these technical difficulties that we're having. So let's go ahead and

00:32:42--> 00:32:50

conclude everybody. There's one person that I want you guys to think of. There's been a couple actually, one that comes to mind is Joran van

00:32:54--> 00:33:40

Loki, you move toward a Tahoe, for suitability and Islam. So Phil Murphy had a lot to burn on clean version. He was also somebody who was a staunch opponent, to the Koran to Muslims, he was a politician. And he was vigorously going and doing things like like these people were doing. And he ended up putting the Quran to the test. So instead of burning the Koran, he read the Quran. And he found what hubs his sources found I became much more happy after I became Muslim. I would like to invite everybody to become Muslim just because it brings peace to your soul and peace to your heart. It is the truth it resonates with heart and soul at least look at it from an Islamic perspective.

00:33:40--> 00:34:25

Try to read and study life of the prophet try to understand what the Muslims believe not so much the behavior of Muslims because there are a lot of Muslims that don't live like Muslims, including myself. I don't always live like a Muslim I shoot so what can we conclude from this? Don't burn the Quran read the Quran, come and connect with the Muslims. Visit your local mosque. Ask your questions engage. And if you go to the deen show.com We will send you a copy for free that's right my gift to you. The crown and if you have questions call tell them I sent you Tom Eddie sent me and I because naturally if you've been exposed to a bunch of fake news, the false information the lies half

00:34:25--> 00:35:00

truths, it might affect you we totally understand and get that so it's your right to ask questions be sincere and about it though. Be sincere call one 800 662 Islaam 62475 to ask I heard this this in the other please. Can you explain that? You might be scared I think in Islam, Muslims are the boogeyman coming to get you It's laughable to us but to you we can understand when you've been fed the wrong information. And now is manufactured fear they are perpetuating this stuff. And you're naturally you're ignorant you don't know that's what ignorant

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

It says you just don't know. But it's your choice. Do you want to get informed? You want to stay in the bliss of ignorance? Or do you want to be enlightened? Do you want to get to know? Do you want to go ahead and keep adding one plus one is seven, one plus one is five, or do you want somebody to teach you now the correct addition to that is one plus one is two, you know, the light bulb goes on, you'll feel better, you'll feel much better about yourself, I'm telling you. So visit the Muslims Love thy love when people come visit the moss and engage with us recently had an experience and I saw a Christian outside and I was like, man, it's a great opportunity to talk to him. But this guy

00:35:37--> 00:36:03

is screaming at the top of his lungs. We're coming out of what's called Juma and this guy's not engaging. He's there preaching and he's there shouting, and he's not sitting there and talking with us asking questions. He's coming along like he knows but he doesn't know and what what's happening he's chasing people away. And this is where religion in general and we would ask the Christian community for people like this coming out of Juma

00:36:05--> 00:36:37

person like this. Screaming and yelling How you doing? Like the pillars of Islam? I'm not talking to you right now. You're a seller. You're trying to build a data center here. Islam is violent. My friends, we've been told they're out to kill us all. So I'm gonna come brothers and sisters. We went to the streets to ask Americans about Islam. Here's what they said. Do you know anything about Islam? No. Do you know anything about Islam? No. Sadly, do you know anything about Islam? Not really. Do you know anything about Islam?

00:36:39--> 00:36:52

No, sorry. You know what Islam means? Islam? No, we've been told that they're out to kill us all. That's what you've been told that Muslims are out to kill you all.

00:36:53--> 00:37:18

Well, that's it. I say on TV. Anything. I know it's in the Middle East. Whether you're gonna have four wives, brothers and sisters, as you can see, there are so many Americans who don't know about Islam we need your help to change that help us to build the deen center the first Mega data center in America click the donate right now may God Almighty Allah reward all of you.

00:37:22--> 00:37:22

That

00:37:24--> 00:38:00

was written on sir Nine as the most violent chapter of the Quran, they want to have a talk that just like we we hold to account, if somebody is stepping out of line having some extreme radical behavior, we the community, we will talk to this person, we will engage with them, we will try to help them rectify their ways. And tell them they don't represent us. We've done this so many times on the program condemning that fringe element. And this I'm sure this is in your community, a fringe element, that tomorrow can do something very violent and extreme. Because what person altogether you're standing in front of a house. So imagine the Muslims are doing that standing in front of a

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

church and synagogue and screaming and yelling, the news will be all over this. And he's thinking that this is like what Islam preaches and teaches and whatnot. So if this guy wants to engage with the Muslims, or anybody else, we are actually very elated. When you come, we'll come in, we'll invite you in and go ahead ask any question. As long as you're sincere, you're genuine. You're not trying to go ahead and, you know, be a smart aleck, and, you know, look for trouble. I mean, where are you going to go with that? So when a person is really trying to connect, make the human connection, we have so many things in common? Let's get the elephant out of the room. Obviously, we

00:38:36--> 00:39:13

don't believe that Jesus is a he's not a God, a literal Son of God. Okay, we can agree to disagree. You guys believe he's God, Trinity, etc. We believe that God Almighty is one and alone worthy of worship, that nothing should be a worship alongside with God that Jesus called people to worship the Creator, and Aramaic Allah. That's how you say in Aramaic, you say hola. That's how you call on God, this language he spoke sister language to that is the Arabic language. And there's a whole chapter named after his blessing mother called midium. So you'll see that we do not say any disrespectful thing about Jesus. Okay, so we get this out of the way we get this out of the way that we can agree

00:39:13--> 00:39:52

to disagree, just like you might have in your own family, someone who you disagree with. So we disagree upon this. But what about all the things that we agree on, that the sexualization of children at this young age it should not be happening we can stand together so delegates are there to to this, we can go on work on many of these other things that we agree with, like the family structure, that there is a way that God created us through marriage and there's a male and the female and all these other hundreds of genders. No, this is not found in the Bible in the crowd, or any religion. So this is something that we can work together to protect our communities, our

00:39:52--> 00:39:59

families from what's happening. Now you can see this but we're coming if we're having people like this guy property

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

In

00:40:01--> 00:40:08

my talk to this guy make Jesus Lord and believe the gospel my friends you can save we really invite you for the

00:40:12--> 00:40:17

grace we are saved and have some water Hudson teen gift from God you got this guy screaming

00:40:19--> 00:40:20

at God he wants out

00:40:22--> 00:40:24

God he wants to have a relationship with you

00:40:25--> 00:40:38

you guys the Bible says the Bible says you want to call nine was written last okay? You want to promote violence I know who you are the Holy Spirit you need to remove

00:40:39--> 00:40:41

violence or violence

00:40:42--> 00:41:14

in our in our country are you doing if a Christian goes and kills a bunch of Muslims, you're gonna blame every Christian for it. Who you're gonna blame for it? So if a Muslim does an act of terrorism, why are you blaming the religion for it? Show me in Scripture I'll show you from your scripture First Samuel 15 Three they were going against God's word killing innocent children this is in your Bible in front of you. So this is not the word of God then because got the words of humans that are wrong. Well, yeah, so who made the Koran a human? No, no, the Quran is revealed by Allah with perfection not a single mistake in it. Have you ever read the Quran?

00:41:15--> 00:41:17

I'm gonna give you a brand just read it

00:41:18--> 00:41:19

give me give me this

00:41:20--> 00:41:59

caveat here. It's promoting hate against Islam and stuff. That's not happening. You're gonna read the Quran come in and screaming and Sultan and whatnot this is not going to work we wouldn't do it to you guy we shouldn't be doing it you shouldn't be doing it to us and if the community a Christian community can hold their own to account like this and say hold on there's a better way and then people they look at this said these these religious people, they're just not jobs all together. It just makes everybody look bad. Anyway, so with that said, I want to thank again my guest and we're gonna have to do it again. Hamza, sorry, we lost you there.
