Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah while he was seven years my inner Shangri La ilaha illallah wa Taala Shrek la vie Sharma Hamdan Abdul sumava salaam alaikum

00:00:14--> 00:00:16

Masha Allah hombre de la

00:00:17--> 00:00:22

la Milan Ameen who in lovely Gianna muslimeen Mashallah,

00:00:23--> 00:00:25

did you think this was going to be an English

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

what I just did with you just now is what I do in all of our programs throughout the world. And that is to begin as Muslims should begin with the Arabic praising ally and thanking Him,

00:00:46--> 00:01:14

bearing witness to the oneness of a law, and that he's the only one worthy to be worshipped. And that I bear witness Muhammad is His last and final messenger, thanking a lot for making us Muslims, and then softening my audience a little bit by telling them a little joke. This is something that I've been using for a number of years, and I've found that it's very effective, and helping call people to a law.

00:01:15--> 00:01:59

Our subject and topic tonight is how to call people to Islam in general, and specifically those who are people of the book, the Jews and the Christians. Now, as I go along, if you see something that you enjoy, you think that's pretty funny, then you're welcome to laugh. If you see something make you want to cry, or just bust right out and ball that'll be okay too. And if you get really, really excited, we're gonna ask you don't clap. Don't follow the Sunnah and follow the ways of the early Muslims and just say, Hello Akbar. Don't go like this go like this.

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

That wasn't very loud on

00:02:06--> 00:02:10

in our country, they need you to give them the starting point. So they say tak

00:02:14--> 00:02:15

Allah

00:02:16--> 00:02:28

Alhamdulillah Bill alameen Allah subhanho wa Taala revealed the complete and total Deen 1400 years ago with the advent and the coming of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.

00:02:29--> 00:03:17

I'm sure there's not a Muslim on this earth that doesn't know that the Quran was sent down in the month of Ramadan. And that began the prophethood of Muhammad. And for the next 23 years, the revelation continued, piece by piece bit by bit, until all of it came. And then in its final combination, the last one of the very final is to come the verse of the Quran in surah al Maya that says, Oh yo Moloch mo Tula come Dena Kumar at mum to Allah commitment, you are ready to reform Islam, Medina. And this completes more or less the revelation of the Quran, and ins revelation to mankind which had started with Adam, continuing with Abraham, then Moses on Mount Sinai, and David

00:03:17--> 00:03:34

and Solomon with their Psalms, and then with Jesus with his NGO, his good news, the basher and then finally, Muhammad as the last and the final, Counselor, Spirit of Truth, and messenger of Allah subhanho wa Taala.

00:03:36--> 00:03:51

Again, the statements that I just used are part of how we present the message to the people of the book, because they will immediately identify with some of the things that I said, Muslims also will identify with the same thing.

00:03:52--> 00:04:13

Other references that I like to use our references to the common words that are found in the Bible, in the Old and New Testament, and also found in the Quran and authentic deeds of Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Let me use one of them right now and see if this helps you. Messiah.

00:04:15--> 00:04:27

One of the questions that I addressed to the first Muslim I met and really talked to was, Do you believe in God? And he said, Yes.

00:04:28--> 00:04:31

I said, Yeah, but do you believe in the God of Abraham?

00:04:33--> 00:04:42

He said, Yes. Which is kind of funny because he's from the debate, and his own grandfather. You believe in your grandfather.

00:04:44--> 00:04:45

I asked him, Do you believe

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

in Jesus?

00:04:49--> 00:04:59

Are we sure you would say no, but he said, Yes. I said, Yes. But you don't believe in the miracle birth. He said, Oh, yes, we do. Because you don't believe he's coming back in the last days. He said, Oh, he's really you.

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

said yes, but you don't believe he's the Messiah.

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

He said we have it in our book. Yes, we don't believe in.

00:05:09--> 00:05:10

This is amazing.

00:05:12--> 00:05:16

Can I say Jesus is the Christ? Some Muslim said no.

00:05:18--> 00:05:23

Really? Do you know what Christ means where it comes from?

00:05:24--> 00:05:32

The word Christ is not really from an English source. It's not Latin. It comes from Cooney, Greek Christos

00:05:33--> 00:06:09

Christos. And they knock off the OSEP in Greece greased and became pronounced Christ. What does crease those mean? It means one who is anointed or chosen or appointed to a particular post or job, a high post. And in this case, this was what was done during the times of the kings of Israel. What they used to do, as a ceremony to induct their new King was to anoint his head with zaytoun Oil of the

00:06:11--> 00:06:31

olive, and they would put it on his forehead up there and wipe his forehead. And this action in Hebrew is called what? The same as it's called in Arabic. What is this mess? mess? And he's mishear the Messiah.

00:06:33--> 00:06:35

What does it say in the Quran?

00:06:37--> 00:06:39

I see the same thing.

00:06:41--> 00:06:49

It's not just like it it is it. That is it? Is Jesus the Messiah? Yes.

00:06:51--> 00:06:52

Without doubt,

00:06:53--> 00:07:00

I want to make that distinction with a person of the book for this reason. The Jews have been looking for the Messiah.

00:07:02--> 00:07:15

The Christians believe that they have it in Jesus. Unfortunately, some of them think that we consider Mohammed is the Messiah. But we don't.

00:07:16--> 00:07:23

It is clear. We know that Mohammed Salah Laila was solemn is the Rasool and

00:07:24--> 00:07:30

overlocked suparna with the NaVi a velocity Portela, the habibollah.

00:07:31--> 00:07:41

But not the Messiah, because he himself and also in Quran acknowledged Jesus as the mercy. Yes.

00:07:43--> 00:07:46

Please, this clears up a huge misconception right away.

00:07:48--> 00:07:50

Because we can use a common term.

00:07:51--> 00:07:56

And then they can relax and understand what we're talking about. Now,

00:07:59--> 00:08:11

for the Jew, he's gonna say Yes, I understand. But I'm not going to accept it. Because the Jews at the time of Mohammed sly Salaam, also understood and they didn't accept it either. Only a few.

00:08:12--> 00:08:57

Now, I like to tell them the story about Abdullah bin Salim. And I'm sure most of you know the story very well. I'll just mention it to remind us about it. This was one of the scholars, the rabbis, the leaders of the Jews, the many Israel they're in Medina at that time. And when he wants to enter into Islam, he tells results a little while with some of them. Don't announce to my people yet. We'll announce right away to them. And you see what they say about me. But suicide salon asks the people now he's not there. So he's not in front of me. He asked me What about government salon? What did they say about him? He is the best of us.

00:08:59--> 00:09:14

He is the most knowledgeable of us. He's the most righteous of us. He is the son of the best of us. He is the son of the most knowledgeable of us and the son of the moderator given this big

00:09:17--> 00:09:26

beautiful introduction for governments. What would you say, though if he became a Muslim, and they said May Allah save him from that I will do Billa

00:09:32--> 00:09:40

then he came in, he entered and he said a shadow in a lie Lola, a shadow Mohammed or a Zulu law.

00:09:42--> 00:09:51

I bear witness in open testimony. There's only one God one deed worship and that's the law. And I bear witness Muhammad is His Messenger.

00:09:52--> 00:10:00

the fulfillment of the prophecy Muhammad is the final and last messenger. This is the understanding of it.

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

Shalom.

00:10:02--> 00:10:08

Which means automatically, you will accept Jesus as the Messiah for mercy.

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

And look what they said, Did they say, hallelujah, let's follow Abdullah bin Salaam. He's our leader, let's go to some of the

00:10:19--> 00:10:32

righteous, others don't know, you know, they said, watch this. He's the worst of us, the son of the worst of us, them ignorant from us and the son of the most ignorant of us something like this.

00:10:35--> 00:10:37

By sharing this story,

00:10:39--> 00:10:50

I do two things. I take them back in time and let them understand that there was there's always been history of those who accept Islam, but those who reject it,

00:10:51--> 00:10:57

and let them realize that things haven't really changed that much either.

00:10:59--> 00:11:02

Another story I love to share with them is the story of Adam and Hatton,

00:11:03--> 00:11:08

the Christian who came to Islam, and this is in reference to shirk.

00:11:11--> 00:11:23

This is the shirk, which is committed by both the Jews and the Christians. I want them to understand how important it is to worship Allah alone without any partners. de la Ha.

00:11:24--> 00:11:30

Yeah, you gotta help me here. This is your program to so when I call on you, you gotta jump up and go for to get La Ilaha

00:11:31--> 00:11:45

Muhammad Ali. Yeah, that's it. Cool. Now anyway, I want them to understand the depth of this. What does it mean? It doesn't just mean God is one Whoa, another Muslim. He said God is one. Okay. Okay, great. Good to go. No, doesn't work like that.

00:11:47--> 00:12:24

And I even give him the example, by the way. But suppose we're going down the road and we said, Look, there's a hitchhiker. Let's pick him up, give him a ride. And on the way, we'll give him the dour, we'll call him and try to get him to come to Islam. Okay, pick him up paycheck or gets in the car along the way. We go. Oh, by the way, do you believe in God? Yep, sure. Do. You do? Well, you know, God is one he said. That's right. I believe in only one God. Yeah, we got him. This is it. And mo Oh, wait, there's one thing we forgot. Oh, yeah. And we only worship that God. He said, Yep, me too. Okay.

00:12:27--> 00:12:38

And all the praises for him all the Thanksgiving. Yep, yep. Yep. Yep. That's it. Just one God when God we call him along. He said I call him shikaka.

00:12:40--> 00:12:51

Well, that's okay. I guess Chicago was okay. But, you know, as we're going along, you know, to the forest and, and he said, Stop, stop, stop the guard.

00:12:53--> 00:13:17

What happened and jumps out of the car, he runs over to a big tall tree. He makes such to this big dream. He's making such to this street. And you're thinking, Hmm, maybe this is a sutra for him. You know, a block. Could be could be could be he's doing chakra law but sugar a chakra or whatever.

00:13:21--> 00:13:31

When he comes back to the car, you go, excuse me? Um, what was that? He said, This is my worship. to Almighty shikaka.

00:13:32--> 00:13:45

k. That's nice. This only place you do that? You should of course, this is the only place to do that. is in front of that tree. He said that was no tree that was Chicago.

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

Oops.

00:13:53--> 00:14:14

So you have to when you talk about the tehila Islam, the true monotheism, the real monotheism, you have to make some clarifications. First and foremost is that when we talk about Allah, we're talking about the real God. The real real government, when they use the big g for not the little G, the big G.

00:14:17--> 00:14:29

They don't have a word in English for a law. And so I tell them that your language is weak. If you don't have a word for a law, you have a word for God. God,

00:14:30--> 00:14:34

but how do you make a difference between an ILA and an OVA?

00:14:35--> 00:14:43

Illa. God, that's clear. Allah Allah, Allah God, Allah, gods.

00:14:45--> 00:14:54

goddesses female. You have words in English for everything like this. But when we say a law, you don't have a word port.

00:14:55--> 00:14:59

So you've been substituting a word for the Hebrew

00:15:00--> 00:15:25

For the Aramaic, and now you're trying to do the same for the Arabic and you've been just using the same thing, God, putting a big G and hoping you could get away with that. But it doesn't work. Because if you start a sentence, any sentence in English has to start with what? capital letter? So now if you start with the word God, I don't know which one you meant, God, God or God, God.

00:15:27--> 00:15:29

In fact, I'm confused now.

00:15:31--> 00:15:35

And what about when you're talking to somebody they can't see that big Jesus, like

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

would not have a word.

00:15:41--> 00:15:42

Why don't you do this?

00:15:44--> 00:15:46

Why don't you do what the Arab Christians do?

00:15:48--> 00:16:00

They go, huh, yes, there are Arab Christians, many Arab Christians. In fact, probably everybody in this room knows somebody that's Arab. Christian. Yes. We've all met Arab Christians, right? Okay.

00:16:01--> 00:16:04

What do they call broadwood? Big G.

00:16:07--> 00:16:21

Now, some of them don't want the other Christians to know this in English. And they have actually denied it. They've said, Oh, it's not the same God, not the same God that we worship. No, no, see, but it's in your book.

00:16:23--> 00:16:36

They trust that nobody can figure it out. They can't find it. But guess what? The Gideon society has made that available for everybody you can find out real easy, you know how just go to any hotel or motel on the planet.

00:16:37--> 00:16:46

And almost every one of them when you pull the drawer out and look in there, there will be a what? A Bible placed by the Gideon society.

00:16:49--> 00:16:51

And may Allah guide them all.

00:16:52--> 00:16:56

They did do a little something good. Turn six pages.

00:16:58--> 00:17:14

And look, the translation to the Afrikaans language of a verse For God so loved the world, then go down to the next one. Arabic language for a law. So love the

00:17:16--> 00:17:46

lamb lamb ha, there it is, right there in 50 million Bibles all over the world, you can go get one next time you're at a motel in one of those countries just pull it out. And they don't mind you can keep it it's free, you know, and take it with you. And the next time somebody says something to you does not allow you to say why does it say so in their book, you need to tell them to fix the problem. And if somebody said, well, that's New Testament, that's true, it is. That's john 316. The fourth gospel, no problem.

00:17:48--> 00:18:14

But if you get an Arabic Bible for the Old Testament, you'll be even more surprised, because in Genesis, the first 17 verses of Genesis have the word Allah seven tene times. Whoops. So for sure, what they meant to say with the big G is what we're saying real clear, with olive lamb lamb ha, Allah.

00:18:16--> 00:18:26

When you do this, do two things again. Now what happens is, you let them know that you have knowledge of their religion as well as your own.

00:18:27--> 00:18:32

And you establish yourself as somebody who has common sense.

00:18:33--> 00:18:52

And you're willing to open up other books and explain and share no problem. We have no problem. They might say, Well, I'm not going to open the Quran. That's fine. Let us look in your book. We have no problem. The original Bible came from Allah will be the first ones to tell you.

00:18:53--> 00:18:55

The Bible is from a law.

00:18:56--> 00:19:03

We'll be the first ones to tell you the Old Testament. It came from along the New Testament, it came from a law.

00:19:04--> 00:19:09

No problem. We don't have a debate. We're happy to join you on this point.

00:19:10--> 00:19:14

And then they say, Well, what about where it says in the Bible sciences? Excuse me? Wait a minute. Hold on, hold on.

00:19:16--> 00:19:22

You're speaking English? Yes. According to me from an English book, yes.

00:19:23--> 00:19:24

I don't agree.

00:19:25--> 00:19:28

There are laws sent down the Bible in English.

00:19:30--> 00:20:00

So if you want to call it we need to go back to exactly what Abraham had. When he was on Mount Sinai. Do you have that? Even if he says he does you tell him? No, your book says you don't. Your book clearly says that the scrolls and manuscripts that were in the Ark of the Covenant, were all lost during the Babylonian exile, all of them and they never found them to this

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

Day. And that's why Ezra had to listen to the different sects of

00:20:08--> 00:20:36

many Israel, their different divisions they had, and he memorized from them. And that's how he re composed the Bible. And if you doubt it, as the Jewish scholars, that's where I learned it from. And it's in a book, who wrote the Bible, by Richard Elliot Friedman, and it's referred to, on my website, share islam.com shareslm.com.

00:20:38--> 00:20:39

That was a commercial by the way.

00:20:51--> 00:21:34

Obviously, we don't really have any commercials, because everything we have is free. Even our programs like this one that we're doing right now, we allow people to record them, but we don't copyright them. And we ask those who do this not to copyright it, it doesn't belong to you, and belongs to a law. And ipso facto, that means it also belongs to all the Muslims everywhere. We ask that when you distributed, that you not cut it up and take pieces out of context. Also, don't add other stuff, from other speakers to our work, because I'm not responsible for what other people say. In fact, sometimes I'm not responsible for what I say either.

00:21:37--> 00:21:51

But we do encourage you to copy and copy and copy and copy and distribute and distribute. And that's probably why I'm sitting here tonight, because we've never ever charged, people felt comfortable to copy and distributed.

00:21:52--> 00:22:12

Our work has been going all over the world for a number of years, because everybody knew it's okay to copy it, it's okay to give it out. And nobody cares. We're not trying to make money out of selling our religion. I think that's people in some other religions who do that. And I'm not interested in playing that game Alhamdulillah

00:22:13--> 00:22:56

I want to return now to our subject. in presenting this message to these people. I've already established in their minds that I know something about their Bible at least, and also that we have some knowledge about the languages. Another important word that we always like to break down for them is the word Islam itself. And you can spend as long as you like on this because once you've made it clear, let them ask you, and when you start answering, stop if they lose interest, the otherwise you're never going to get anything with a bra, I promise you, you're not gonna go anywhere. See you. I know you know, everything there is to know about everything. But just you know,

00:22:56--> 00:23:02

take it easy until you get a little bit of silver I don't call this gray By the way, it's not worth much silver is worth a lot so you know.

00:23:04--> 00:23:50

But take it easy guys. In our youth A lot of you are gung ho you want to just change the whole world I'm proud of you for the energy but direct that in the right way Be careful with it and will be too quick to shoot off the gun of tech fear because this is very dangerous. And I think you know what I'm talking about. I'm saying this because we're trying to get down to non Muslims. And you get into these things like this and you're gonna hurt your downfall right away. If you start talking about different groups, you're gonna lose the person. If they asked you I get this question all the time. Which can remind you Oh, I get that all the time. From non Muslims. Are you one of them Shiites Are

00:23:50--> 00:23:57

you one of them. So these are one of them Sunni's some columns Sonny's Are you one of the Sonny's?

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

When I came back from a retreat that we did down in Texas to tango in Mexico, which is close to one of the horror we established the place there with Omar Western is called the dar slim and on the way back the United States Customs grabbed me and then the Yeah, that's normal for them anyway. And but they did it just my my face. Usually they go with my passport because my number pops up, but they did.

00:24:32--> 00:24:34

00:24:35--> 00:24:39

They sat me down in a room and he had to wait and then they come in and you know,

Sue said,

00:24:43--> 00:24:44

I'm having a good time when you guys hear a lot of fun.

00:26:46--> 00:26:53

I could wrap it up right here. But maybe I should give you a little bit more about that. And in before we end it.

00:26:54--> 00:26:59

When people ask you these questions, like for instance, what group are you in?

00:27:00--> 00:27:03

The best? I believe answer

00:27:05--> 00:27:06

is two.

00:27:08--> 00:27:11

Let them know there really is only one group.

00:27:12--> 00:27:17

There's only one God. That's a law. There's only one universe.

00:27:18--> 00:27:23

There's a complete universe, most of which we really don't know much about but it's still one.

00:27:25--> 00:27:43

There's always been one message to human beings. One Prophethood It started with Adam. It ended with Mohammed but it was always the same thing. Call the people and that's what we're talking about tonight. Call the people to love Illa Illa law. That's it.

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

That's the real Islam, the surrender and the submission, the obedience insincerity in peace to the One God that's Islam and whoever does it send me a slammer

00:27:58--> 00:27:59

a slammer.

00:28:05--> 00:28:09

My sister, American sister in New York

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

heard a brother giving some lecture and telling sisters have to do this and that and and, you know, so and so he was really getting carried away.

00:28:20--> 00:28:24

She turned to another sister and she said now is that is slammer, his slam.

00:28:26--> 00:28:31

But there's only one Islam isn't there. And whoever does Islam,

00:28:32--> 00:28:35

there are moose. Moose

00:28:37--> 00:28:50

because in Arabic, you don't use suffixes. After the verb. You use a prefix before the verb, the letter meme pronounced move when somebody calls to the prayer.

00:28:53--> 00:28:54

This is called the

00:28:56--> 00:28:59

he and whoever does it's called the Adana.

00:29:04--> 00:29:08

When somebody prays suddenly he's a sunnier

00:29:13--> 00:29:18

column, the speaker will suffer the traveler from the word suffer.

00:29:20--> 00:29:36

So we understand when somebody does this action, and they submit themselves totally to Almighty God on his terms in peace. They have done what they committed action of Islam and they became a

00:29:37--> 00:29:38

a what?

00:29:41--> 00:29:42

You want to be a what?

00:29:43--> 00:29:48

I use that when doing my programs. That's called Instant charter for everybody. I'll wrap it up. There you go.

00:29:53--> 00:29:57

As long as they understood this message, you've done your job.

00:29:58--> 00:29:59

You have done your job.

00:30:00--> 00:30:07

Did you communicate to them there's one God, do what he wants you to do. If you'd like to carry it a step further, just a little bit further,

00:30:08--> 00:30:29

you can ask them. You have a prayer in your Bible that tells you how to pray to Almighty God, hallowed be thy name thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. They all have memorized this they don't know much else but they memorize this, almost like we memorize that the Kersey.

00:30:31--> 00:30:37

When you come to that part, God's will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

00:30:39--> 00:31:04

And means Islam. do God's will not your will. Don't give into your desires. Don't give into your lusts. Do the commandments and then ask them. Do you know about the 10 commandments? What is the first commandment? The first commandment it's in the book of Exodus chapter 20. In the book of Deuteronomy, chapter five, just go read it, check it out for yourself, and it says,

00:31:05--> 00:31:19

Thou shalt not have any other gods beside God. The worship is for who? One God. Now some will say, well, that's Old Testament. That's true. It is that's for the minute Israel. Yep.

00:31:20--> 00:31:27

So what does the Bible say in the New Testament? And I'll give you the reference to that when for a sharing with these people.

00:31:28--> 00:31:34

Mark 1229, Jesus was asked,

00:31:36--> 00:31:39

sarcastically, what's the greatest commandment?

00:31:41--> 00:31:54

And he responded, it is to know Oh, Israel, you see who he's talking to many Israel, to know Israel, the Lord your God is One Lord. How many?

00:31:57--> 00:31:58

everybody heard that? One?

00:32:00--> 00:32:02

One, Lord, one.

00:32:03--> 00:32:14

And you have to worship Him with all your heart and all your mind and all your strength. Some translations say you have to love him with all your mind, your heart and all your strength. And this also is in Islam, yes or no?

00:32:15--> 00:32:18

So show them. You have this. Do you do it?

00:32:20--> 00:32:22

They say yeah, but three.

00:32:23--> 00:32:27

You don't have three isn't your book. This came later.

00:32:28--> 00:32:47

Our book is the last and final revelation, the Golan came in the same exact family of languages as your Bible did. It came in the Semitic language of Arabic. Your book came in Aramaic, the Jewish came in Hebrew, or Ybor. And all of them said the same thing, La Ilaha.

00:32:49--> 00:32:50

There's no difference

00:32:51--> 00:32:54

until somebody makes a difference.

00:32:55--> 00:33:08

If you know about the first and second Maccabees in the Catholic Bible, it doesn't appear in the Protestant Bible. We will know already that there are differences that were brought about by their scholars of their times.

00:33:09--> 00:33:29

What they used to divide up the people to try to come to their particular men Hodge or madhhab. They did that. The Jews did it. The Christians did it. They have so many divisions. So if you see Muslims dividing into groups realize they're doing the same mistake as their predecessors.

00:33:30--> 00:33:45

It's not acceptable in God's plan for you to make a new religion. He has one for you. He's defined it for you. He told you the name of it in Edina in the law Hill is

00:33:47--> 00:33:57

if somebody would like something other than Islam, why mommy or daddy viral Islam Medina, follow up Solomon who will who will fill up here in the middle, serene.

00:33:58--> 00:34:00

He's never going to accept

00:34:01--> 00:34:03

most people can be losers.

00:34:04--> 00:34:07

I'm going to end now is what I started with.

00:34:08--> 00:34:10

I started out by talking to you

00:34:12--> 00:34:15

how the last look on came.

00:34:18--> 00:34:27

It's the same in the beginning, as it is in the end. And there's never any difference are your mo atmo to the codina come

00:34:28--> 00:34:33

to alicona already to come is to Medina.

00:34:34--> 00:34:40

La sit on this day, I have perfected for you your complete way of life.

00:34:42--> 00:34:44

And I have conferred upon you

00:34:46--> 00:34:53

the possessive form of nama, my biggest nama the biggest of all favors on you

00:34:54--> 00:34:59

and have chosen for you to submit to surrender to obey

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

insincerity and peace to the will of Almighty God.

00:35:07--> 00:35:14

May Allah put us on that Deen to ami May Allah make us of the people who understand this Deen

00:35:15--> 00:35:30

and share this thing as the early people understood it and shared it. I mean, you know hum de la Ville alameen who allowed the Jelena muslimeen or salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

00:35:33--> 00:35:33

The

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

steps required to

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

stay?

00:35:39--> 00:35:40

I can't hear you.

00:35:46--> 00:35:46

What do you think?

00:35:59--> 00:36:27

There was a lady by the way, they're setting up, they're changing out their cameras getting ready to do a second party. So what's going on? There was a lady. It's not Muslim. She's been communicating with one of our Muslim Brothers here, right here in eastern province, to email. And he told her, I have to go somewhere tonight to a program and she said, Oh, well, I hope you have good success for your program. As the afterthought she put me in there, unless it's one of those programs where you're trying to convert Christians, in this case, I hope you're not successful.

00:36:28--> 00:36:35

And he wrote back and he said, Well, it is a matter of fact, we have an ex preacher who's going to be given the program.

00:36:42--> 00:37:01

Often we have folks who sit in the crowd, who already know everything there is to know about everything in Islam, and all they have time to do really is just watch and see if we make a mistake. And I always delight them, because I always make sure to make one mistake or more for them. So those mistakes that you saw, were probably intentional.

00:37:05--> 00:37:06

She liked that.

00:37:17--> 00:37:32

The most common question we always get is, how did you get to Islam? That's the most common question. Tell us about your story coming to stand? How many of you already have heard it or watched it or read it? Raise your hand?

00:37:36--> 00:37:40

Okay, about half the people here have already heard it. Well, now I have to tell you what Joe has said.

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

You're not

00:37:50--> 00:38:10

bloody Shem. Ham See, Java, you got it? All right. This is the famous character that people from the area called blood shell, they always talk about this guy. But unless they're from Syria, because these usually associated with hunts, which is in Syria, but if they're from there, and they say no, he's Turkish.

00:38:16--> 00:38:21

We won't mention anybody's name. Who might be like that, by the way.

00:38:26--> 00:38:28

His name is Ahmed, Cody,

00:38:30--> 00:38:31

Cody, you know, Kurdistan

00:38:32--> 00:38:34

touches Syria and Turkey done.

00:38:38--> 00:38:54

Anyhow, I want to tell you what Joe said. They asked Joe how to give a speech. He didn't want to give the speech, to give a speech, give a speech. He got up there in front of people and said, you know what I'm gonna talk about they said, Yeah, go ahead. to everybody. No, they said, yeah, we all know he said, then I don't need to talk about it. Neela

00:38:56--> 00:39:06

we got him up there another time. Say, come on. Come on. Do you have a speech and he got up there? He said, You know, I'm talking about well, they learned their lesson. They said, No, we don't he said then why should I waste my time and he left

00:39:09--> 00:39:20

Come on, come on. He got there. He said, Okay, you know what I'm gonna talk about half of them said Yes, we do. The other half said No, we don't. He said, okay, those of you know, tell the ones that don't know.

00:39:28--> 00:39:30

So those of you that know the story.

00:39:35--> 00:39:36

Next question.

00:39:43--> 00:39:46

Is one of my souvenirs from Hodge. Anyhow,

00:39:58--> 00:39:58

no,

00:40:00--> 00:40:14

By the way, you can get the whole story on our website share islam.com sH AR ri is le m.com. And thank you for giving me a chance to do my commercial again, said it's this question asked about the Trinity.

00:40:19--> 00:40:25

And then it asked about the different divisions in Christianity and their differences.

00:40:27--> 00:40:33

And it says that these differences should point should be the first point start with.

00:40:35--> 00:40:40

Oh, I thought it was a question. Oh, no, what should be the first point? So, okay.

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

Had my thumb over? Sorry.

00:40:44--> 00:40:48

No, sometimes people do send up, it doesn't have a question is tell me what to do.

00:40:51--> 00:40:52

I'm used to that my wife does it all the time.

00:40:55--> 00:40:57

By the way, everybody knows who I am, right?

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

My name is use it. My name is can you say use it.

00:41:05--> 00:41:10

You got it right on the first time. All these years my wife still prints it useless.

00:41:22--> 00:41:23

The Trinity

00:41:24--> 00:41:25

is not mentioned

00:41:28--> 00:41:32

in the Bible. Not in the Old Testament, not in the New Testament.

00:41:33--> 00:41:59

But it is mentioned in the Quran. And I love to say it like that was a go, huh? Shin Yes, the Quran clarifies your book for you. Let's look in the Quran. And we'll find how to deal with these things. The word Bible is not in the Bible. But it's in the ground. Many times it says keytab keytab, kadem kingdom. You know what the word Bible means? They don't know.

00:42:00--> 00:42:11

They say the Holy Book of God. What does it mean that it comes from Greek videos? It means book. That's all it means.

00:42:13--> 00:42:18

And they put a big B dislike they used to make g on God.

00:42:19--> 00:42:20

But it means book.

00:42:23--> 00:42:45

We're the ones that give it the proper distinction of key tab, which means the book and they are the key tab, people of the Bible. So Bible is mentioned over and over and over and over and they're mentioned Jews and Christians. And also people have the book was such a nice reference

00:42:47--> 00:42:53

throughout the Quran, even some of them are called believers in the Quran.

00:42:55--> 00:43:04

Yeah. How many of you didn't know that? Anybody didn't know that? They were called believers in the Quran. Present tense of the verb. Some of them are believers.

00:43:07--> 00:43:08

Yes.

00:43:10--> 00:43:11

I'll give you one clue.

00:43:12--> 00:43:20

On Emraan chapter 100 chapter three verse 110. And you know, the beginning of it, Clinton Cairo, mudgin.

00:43:22--> 00:43:30

regenda, NASS. Cameroon Bill Maher roof, the 10th annual moon car. What do you mean when Villa

00:43:34--> 00:43:43

somebody does know the rest of the verse, we get a big enough crowd, you can find one. Most of us stop right there. Because we didn't know the residents and

00:43:44--> 00:44:03

the people of the book had believed it would have been better for them from them, or those who have the man but most of them are thorough home are fussy comb their plastic, which didn't say Kaffir says this obedient. And that's very true. So

00:44:04--> 00:44:11

another question is going to come up all the time they asked about these differences, should we talk about their differences and so on?

00:44:12--> 00:44:26

If you want to use that, you're going to run into a problem yourself. Because if you said Okay, you guys divided up into so many groups that that should make you know right there your religions wrong. What will you do when they point to all the divisions in Instagram? What will you say?

00:44:30--> 00:44:52

The prophets Aslam told us as the Jews and Christians divided up into so many groups, we're going to divide even more and all of them are going to be in the fire except for one. And that's the one that me and my companions are on today, yes or no. So if you already know that, don't use that as a criterion because you just proven yourself wrong.

00:44:55--> 00:44:59

If they ask you, you tell him that's a prophecy. That's a prophecy.

00:45:00--> 00:45:03

We would divide up and all are gonna go to hell except one.

00:45:07--> 00:45:14

Now, this makes some people angry. By the way, when I come to this point, because I wrote an article about this on the internet. It's been there for years called groups.

00:45:16--> 00:45:25

And everybody's happy with you until you get to the group thing and you go there not to mention my group, or you mentioned the Sophie's into Goofy's but don't you come to my group?

00:45:27--> 00:45:30

Okay, she I didn't mention those guys. Don't you come to my group.

00:45:32--> 00:45:40

When they asked me again, I mentioned when I come back to the country, they'll ask me, are you assuming? I say No, I'm not.

00:45:43--> 00:46:03

Why? Well, I'm not gonna leave out the Quran, that the god we're talking about is the same one. You already clarified that this God is not something in the creation. He is not like his creation. He's outside of his creation. You can use many of the verses in the Koran, and in the Bible about that.

00:46:05--> 00:46:15

But now we come to the word Islam and we talk about what's our relationship with Almighty Allah. And that's what's really important. Once you know,

00:46:16--> 00:46:18

there really is a God.

00:46:21--> 00:46:29

It's logical that you should be asking why did he create me? What is my position? What should I be doing about it?

00:46:31--> 00:46:47

You're a Muslim. You already know the last sentence or Lauria, he says Bhama. Virgin in Isla de Ave. He only created us to worship Him. Now did you see what I just did? Pay attention to that.

00:46:49--> 00:47:20

I did not give use of Ali's translation. Nor did I give Marmaduke pixels translation or anybody else's because the actual translations almost always say that our law says that he did not we it's in the form of we not know like you know, it's like the we select now saying that we did not create

00:47:21--> 00:47:26

jinn and mankind except for worship.

00:47:27--> 00:47:32

But I didn't leave it like that. I said us and I said a law

00:47:35--> 00:47:47

now right away somebody who has been studying translation of the interpretation of the Quran will try to correct me usually right in front of the person. I'm trying to help get them to slam no shakey left some words out.

00:47:50--> 00:47:59

I translated it exactly the way I wanted to use it for that purpose. Why? Because if you said we

00:48:00--> 00:48:16

have come on loans we How come there's more than one oh my god, what's that all about? Or our or us in a lot uses that in the ground, but it's the Royal we you know that that you want to stop now and start explaining that to everybody?

00:48:17--> 00:48:37

Now, if you've already done that, in the beginning your program when you were talking to them, that's fine. But what are you going to do if you didn't know you got to stop digress break it down? royal we the Queen says this is how the king Lalalalala and you lost them. The bus pulls up, they get on and ride away and you your debt was gone.

00:48:38--> 00:48:52

So that's why when you're presenting it, you present the concept of what was said. And it's the same concept. What about the gin? You didn't mention the Jim Jin Da, you didn't say it. But I say us

00:48:53--> 00:48:54

that's included.

00:48:55--> 00:49:01

left the we out of a law, but I put the we in the jinn and us okay.

00:49:05--> 00:49:17

And guess what? It works for the purpose. I didn't say I'm going to give you the translation the meaning of the Quran in one session. What I said was the purpose of art.

00:49:18--> 00:49:27

The purpose of our life is to worship the law. That's my only point is still the same point is still valid. Didn't know.

00:49:28--> 00:49:41

What I'm saying here is don't nitpick. Don't get in such detail on things that you just met somebody you want to give them the concept of Islam know when they study and learn more about it. Great.

00:49:43--> 00:49:53

But initially, you're just trying to touch the top of the subject. Don't pretend to be a scholar, don't play like you know everything and don't bore them to death.

00:49:55--> 00:50:00

You know, somebody's trying to be nice to you. You're kind of them. You were kind of funny in the beginning.

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

Everything was going along pretty good. Then all of a sudden they're going, how did I get in this conversation with this guy? Oh, good God. And there's the going like, no.

00:50:11--> 00:50:13

Yeah. Oh, it's very interesting. Marian

00:50:15--> 00:50:19

said, well give us your card, and we'll see you much later.

00:50:23--> 00:50:51

Don't warm to death. That's my advice. You have some points, get to your point. Point. Number one, we believe in Allah. Allah is one, he has no partners. He's not like the creation. If you compare him to the creation, there's not a lot anymore. Point number two, relationship between us and him is what? Who's the boss a lot? Are you a dog? That's real easy. I mean, you know, they'll know that right away. They understand it. It's not a problem.

00:50:52--> 00:50:57

Anybody goes on a job, anybody goes anywhere it goes to work, doesn't matter what capacity.

00:50:59--> 00:51:02

There's a boss and an employee.

00:51:03--> 00:51:29

And if you're the employee, you don't tell the boss what to do. We can imagine this guy show up the first day. And he's filling up babies. He goes, these papers are too complicated. I want them to be much easier. And I just want to use a pencil. I don't want to use a pen for that. Oh, and the salary has to be a lot higher. I want this. And hours. I don't want to work that much. And there you go. That's what I want right there.

00:51:34--> 00:51:36

How long is he gonna last?

00:51:42--> 00:51:43

You betcha.

00:51:45--> 00:52:00

Because that's the boss who does that? Nothing employee, he comes in and says, Hey, fill this full paper out. You don't leave any blanks on it, use a pen when you fill it out. And we'll get back to you if we want you. Goodbye.

00:52:01--> 00:52:02

That's how it works.

00:52:03--> 00:52:15

So if you understood that concept, why would you think anything less of the Creator and sustainer the universe? And regarding the body of the worship itself?

00:52:16--> 00:52:32

Again, let's look at the job. Could you go to the job and say, you know, I don't I don't think we shouldn't put all these posts in so many posts because too much money. Take that one out. Don't build the building that way. And just you know, I think we don't need so much cement in here. Use more dirt.

00:52:33--> 00:52:37

And by the way, what's my position? Or I'm the guy that holds out the trash.

00:52:42--> 00:52:50

A low position, telling the people the big labor what to do it doesn't work like this. Nobody except that.

00:52:53--> 00:52:59

Paula? And how about the architect of the universe?

00:53:02--> 00:53:17

We respect an architect to put up a big building. Here in Kingdom Yes. You respect that this guy Wow. Spent these years look what he did is it comes to look this grand edifice that he's proposing here. Wow.

00:53:18--> 00:53:21

It's just a human building a little stick out in the desert.

00:53:22--> 00:53:50

But how about when Allah builds a universe? And have you ever really looked at it and thought about the size, how our Earth is just a teeny tiny dot compared to some of the suns that are out there. And the suns are teeny tiny dots compared to solar systems that are there in place and all of it together in the Milky Way is a dot compared to the whole universe. You're like, Whoa, and you're gonna tell a law what's a bother.

00:53:53--> 00:54:05

The end of ayato Kersey scares me when I think about it was Dr. corsi, you who's somewhat evil or Walia, who hit the home of Rahul Ali loving.

00:54:07--> 00:54:23

And what was said about this, and I share this with the Jews and Christians when the time comes to let them think about who is the creator and Sustainer of the universe. And we talk about the size of the macro, we look at the universe, look at the solar system, we look at the stars, look at it,

00:54:24--> 00:54:40

and then look under the microscope at the molecules and look and think about the atoms, the protons, neutrons, electrons, look at what's happening under both of these great magnifiers.

00:54:42--> 00:54:59

You see spheres going in orbits, moving both cases, the same system the same way who could do such a thing, even the scientists that they have had to admit there's intelligent design, and they call it AI D

00:55:02--> 00:55:42

We have no room to argue in favor of atheism anymore. We can't. Because they've admitted themselves, that there's something else out there something bigger, something much more than they know, on our website from the letter below. I mean, we have videos, videos that were done by shakes, and Donnie, with the great scientists of the world. And we put them there, they're in English, and we invite people low in watch. And they come away shaking their heads going, What can I say? What can I say atheists come back and their tongue doesn't move anymore.

00:55:44--> 00:56:05

They stop insulting a law with the tongue that Allah gave them. Because in number seven, we have seven a month or six or seven, the last one, all of them saying this must be from Allah, the Quran has to come from Allah. Some of you've seen those. But the last one is the amazing one. Because during the speech,

00:56:07--> 00:56:08

he stops.

00:56:11--> 00:56:12

And he says,

00:56:13--> 00:56:15

I guess it's time for me to say

00:56:17--> 00:56:20

la ilaha illAllah. Muhammad, also

00:56:22--> 00:56:28

an atheist scientists accepts Islam right there in front of their eyes. What can they say? What can they do?

00:56:29--> 00:56:30

It's their.

00:56:33--> 00:56:41

So when we're explaining, we're just taking it easy. taking it easy, but we're leading up to what

00:56:42--> 00:57:04

we're always leading up to the relationship between them and what should be the relationship between the master and the servant. Because that's the relationship implied by the word Islam. Immediately. The word Islam comes from the verb assalamo, which comes from the root silicene lam mean.

00:57:08--> 00:57:16

And you ask some of the Muslims that speak some English. What does this mean? What does it mean? They say Islam means peace.

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

May Allah guide them.

00:57:24--> 00:57:42

This is so easy for a detractor of Islam to hurt you. To put you down. If you say that. Really, Islam means peace, or Yeah. Then how come when you greet each other? You say Salaam Alaikum. Instead of Islam? I like gum.

00:57:44--> 00:57:45

We just messed up.

00:57:47--> 00:57:48

What will you do now?

00:57:49--> 00:58:02

Because you've lost credibility? You said something that they can point to and say he doesn't know. Let's go. Date he doesn't know. Okay, thank you very much. Have a nice day. Bye.

00:58:04--> 00:58:28

So take it easy. And think before you open your mouth. Muslims are commanded not to answer questions unless you really know the answer. And you don't know the answer, unless you know the source and the location. Otherwise, you say, I don't know what we can find out. That's what we're supposed to say.

00:58:29--> 00:58:39

There are three words in the English language with the people of the West have a difficult time saying very difficult time to say.

00:58:40--> 00:58:49

And that's evident when a man gets married. And he goes to work. And then all of a sudden he gets a phone call at work.

00:58:51--> 00:59:03

And I thank the brother that turned his phone on so that I could play into that that was just on time. I know he only did that for that purpose. Obviously, he's going to turn it off as are all of you. Mashallah.

00:59:04--> 00:59:05

Mashallah

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

guidance.

00:59:16--> 00:59:30

He gets a phone call at work, and he's embarrassed. It's his wife checking up on him, you know? Yes, ma'am. Yeah, yeah. Um, okay. I have to get back to work now. Okay. Yeah. Okay, I'll pick it up on the way home. Okay. I'll get by. Hmm.

00:59:31--> 00:59:33

Yeah, me too.

00:59:35--> 00:59:41

Oh, yeah. Honey, I'm at work and Yeah, me too. I mean,

00:59:42--> 00:59:43

you know,

00:59:46--> 00:59:49

the folks are looking at him now going. And he goes,

00:59:50--> 00:59:51

I love you too.

00:59:53--> 00:59:59

Hard. real hard. He can go I don't know why people notice they just don't say I love you. They don't we say it all the time.

01:00:01--> 01:00:21

But for now, I love you for Allah. We said all the time to each other. And when we're with our families, it's no problem. I love you. It's easy. I love my children, I say, I love you. We don't have a problem with those three words. But we have a problem with three other words, we just cannot say these three words, somebody come up to you and ask you a question. Any question about Islam? right away?

01:00:24--> 01:00:28

Why? Because the three words we can't say is, I don't know,

01:00:32--> 01:00:33

I think was the Malik,

01:00:34--> 01:00:58

who had a visitor who came, I think, from Yemen. And they asked some questions. A lot of the questions he asked, a lot of them he didn't have the answer for and they said, I don't have the answer to these. And they said, How are we gonna go back? And what are we gonna tell the people when we go back when he said, You tell them mmm Malik doesn't know the answer to those questions.

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

Who here thinks they know more about Islam than eema? Malik? Anybody?

01:01:06--> 01:01:09

Okay, so why we can't say I don't know.

01:01:11--> 01:01:20

People have much more respectful you can if you guess and say the wrong thing. Islam does not mean bass.

01:01:25--> 01:01:35

And if you say it, you'll be eating those words before you end your conversation because they'll throw it right back in your face. Islam is something better

01:01:37--> 01:01:38

and bigger

01:01:40--> 01:01:44

and carries a lot more weight than just the word peace in English.

01:01:45--> 01:01:49

Islam contains five English words all at once.

01:01:50--> 01:01:55

That work together in a system. Surrender.

01:01:56--> 01:02:00

submission, obedience, sincerity

01:02:02--> 01:02:19

and peace. So peace is in there. Yes. But it's not peace on earth goodwill do man not peace in the Middle East. It's peace between you and Almighty Allah. And you don't get that until you do the other four

01:02:21--> 01:02:24

and supah even some Muslims don't have that.

01:02:25--> 01:02:26

They don't think about it.

01:02:29--> 01:02:32

A person tell you I'm a Muslim. say okay.

01:02:34--> 01:02:39

But we've been working with you here on the job for a number of years we didn't know you're a Muslim.

01:02:41--> 01:02:44

And we go pray you never do pray? He said Well, I'm a Muslim.

01:02:45--> 01:02:48

But I don't pray

01:02:52--> 01:02:53

when there's so Salaam said

01:02:55--> 01:02:58

he's not from us who leaves Salah.

01:03:00--> 01:03:09

And what about Ramadan? Here we are we're in the month of Ramadan and you're telling me you're a Muslim and you don't fast would you do and sitting there drinking that Mimsy?

01:03:12--> 01:03:16

He said I'm a Muslim, but I don't fast

01:03:20--> 01:03:23

What about zip code you pay your browser

01:03:24--> 01:03:27

Hello knows my heart. I love a law

01:03:33--> 01:03:34

ordered us we have to pay this

01:03:36--> 01:03:49

bill. I don't know. Allah knows my heart. Allah says cool lincolnton ui buena lava Tabby uni you become a law or your critical number come for him.

01:03:51--> 01:04:13

Tell him this is what Allah is telling prophets Islam tell them if you really love Allah Follow me. We're so say Salaam then and only then is Allah gonna love you. So this answers immediately the question well what amount these people are Christians and Jews and they do some good deeds and blah blah do they follow a salsa song

01:04:15--> 01:04:28

but they love a lot do they follow Russell's Aslam so interior and unless they got the understanding of Muhammad Rasulullah and they fall in, they're not fulfilling their potential.

01:04:29--> 01:04:31

That's the bottom line.

01:04:33--> 01:04:54

And you ask him, what about how much do you make? How much did you do Omer? Did you do anything that you put on the 2000 go down. I mean, you know you took a month off last year, took your bonus in your salary. You took your kids over to Florida and went to Disney World and you did tell off around Epcot Center for how long

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

But you didn't make much. He said buzzer I'm a Muslim but

01:05:08--> 01:05:12

oh, we get it. You're a Muslim but

01:05:18--> 01:05:19

that's good.

01:05:20--> 01:05:22

That's good. You got part of a Muslim.

01:05:24--> 01:05:25

The part you sit on

01:05:26--> 01:05:31

Oh, we need some legs, arms ahead, Mashallah you could be a whole Muslim.

01:05:43--> 01:05:45

At the same time.

01:05:47--> 01:05:56

At the same time that I'm picking on the Muslims, I want to be careful that I don't do that in front of the new on the non Muslims.

01:05:58--> 01:05:58

Why?

01:06:00--> 01:06:01

One of our brothers

01:06:02--> 01:06:29

in Islam, beautiful brother. We love him very much. Yusuf Islam used to be Cat Stevens. And he read about Islam while he was in the hospital. He read the Koran, he made nuther for the law, who was drowning actually out in the California, ocean, and Pacific. He said of if you get me back a warship you on your terms, and that's when the law guided him to slam.

01:06:31--> 01:06:34

Because the law got him back safely. He didn't drown. He told the story himself.

01:06:36--> 01:06:45

But he said it was some years really before he ever met any Muslims. And his statement was, had I met Muslims first below here wouldn't be a Muslim.

01:06:48--> 01:07:02

This many had bad experience with some Muslims. And well, it's true. I will tell Muslims, new Muslims, random Muslim, and people looking at Islam. If you get in Islam, hello is going to give you a big test.

01:07:03--> 01:07:44

Allah says in Surah acabou do they think there'll be left alone on entering Islam and they won't be put into fitna for sure. It's gonna put them in the test that he puts people before them in the show who are the static, the truthful, and those who are causing the liars. Now that's in the Quran. So I will tell him about that. And I will tell him part of the fitnah part of the test, I'm sorry to tell you is going to be us the Muslims, because, you know, don't look at Muslims to see what's Islam, I will tell them that. But I'm not going to insult all the Muslims by making a statement like that, because not true. The majority of all the Muslims are actually good.

01:07:45--> 01:07:59

That's the truth. Just as in the case of Americans, there are some bad Americans the show, but the majority of them are pretty good guys, they just don't know. It's actually up to us to get the message to them.

01:08:06--> 01:08:07

But we haven't done our job.

01:08:10--> 01:08:39

We've got a lot of good Muslims out there, who are good Muslims, some of them are also a little bit ignorant about Islam. But again, that's not caused for me to try to pass judgment on them. It's God's for me to do what work harder to get the message out. And by the way, this is to the youth. Listen to me. Don't try to convert the old people to your understanding of Islam. Don't do that.

01:08:41--> 01:08:54

It's not gonna work. They're gonna get mad at you, you're gonna be in trouble. Just take it easy. You want them to learn something, show them with your good actions. bribe them with your,

01:08:55--> 01:09:18

let them ask you. And when you start answering, stop if they lose interest. Otherwise, you're never going to get anything with them abroad, I promise you, you're not going to go anywhere. See you. I know you know, everything there is to know about everything. But just you know, take it easy until you get a little bit of silver. I don't call this gray By the way, it's not worth much. Silver is worth a lot. So you know.

01:09:19--> 01:09:59

But take it easy, guys. In our youth, a lot of you are gung ho you want to just change the whole world. I'm proud of you for the energy, but direct that in the right way, be careful with it will be too quick to shoot off the gun of fear because this is very dangerous. And I think you know what I'm talking about. I'm saying this because we're trying to get down to non Muslims. And you get into these things like this and you're gonna hurt your dour right away. If you start talking about different groups, you're going to lose the person. If they asked you I get this question all the time. which can cause some argue Oh, I

01:10:00--> 01:10:12

I get that all the time from non Muslims. Are you one of them Shiites Are you one of them. So these are one of them Sunni's some of them call them Sonny's Are you one of the Sonny's?

01:10:14--> 01:10:16

My dad used to call me Sonny

01:10:20--> 01:10:46

when I came back from a retreat that we did down in Texas to tango in Mexico which is close to one la hora we established the place there with Omar Western is called the dar slim and on the way back to the United States Customs grabbed me and then the yeah that's normal for them anyway. And but they did it just my face usually they do with my passport because my number pops up but they did my face.

01:10:48--> 01:10:50

Come on. Whoa.

01:10:51--> 01:10:54

They sat me down in a room and near the weight and then they come in and you know

01:10:56--> 01:10:57

so he said

01:10:59--> 01:11:00

so what kind of Muslim are you?

01:11:04--> 01:11:17

And I thought I could get away with this. I said, I don't know what you mean. They said Yeah, you do. What kind of Muslim are you? I said like what do you mean? said Are you one of those? Sonny's? I don't know. Just

01:11:19--> 01:11:27

Well, no, I you know qadiani aghani they got the book in front of me is gone 5% arrested

01:11:29--> 01:11:31

Hebrew Jewish Muslim.

01:11:33--> 01:11:42

I see I'm not going anywhere until I come up with something I'm thinking a woman say you're in the Mojave salad piece and they know everything in

01:11:43--> 01:11:52

the hidden miss nothing You know, you're no one Muslim mean. Are you with the Hamas? Are you with his blog you would not wish to I didn't hear about before.

01:11:54--> 01:11:57

I was supposed to be Muslim chaplain. I'm supposed to know all of them. You know?

01:12:00--> 01:12:04

They're not gonna let up. What kind of Muslim? Are you? Okay, I'm a fat Muslim.

01:12:08--> 01:12:09

They didn't laugh.

01:12:11--> 01:12:14

They tried again, what kind of Muslim are you? I said old.

01:12:18--> 01:12:19

still won't let up.

01:12:21--> 01:12:25

Alright, I confess. I'm a Christian Muslim.

01:12:32--> 01:12:36

As well, I used to be a Christian, I became a Muslim. Okay, I wrote something down. You can go.

01:12:41--> 01:12:43

It's time for another whiteboard. Here.

01:12:45--> 01:12:46

We go.

01:12:49--> 01:12:56

Sticking commercial in there, Sharon. Slam sh aR II is lm.com. All right, back to our program already in progress.

01:12:59--> 01:13:01

I'm having a good time with you guys hear a lot of fun.

01:13:02--> 01:13:08

I could wrap it up right here. But maybe I should give you a little bit more about that. And in before we end it.

01:13:09--> 01:13:14

When people ask you these questions, like, for instance, what group are you in?

01:13:16--> 01:13:18

The best? I believe answer

01:13:21--> 01:13:22

is to

01:13:23--> 01:13:26

let them know there really is only one group.

01:13:28--> 01:13:33

There's only one God. That's a law. There's only one universe.

01:13:34--> 01:13:39

There's a complete universe, most of which we really don't know much about but it's still one.

01:13:41--> 01:13:46

There's always been one message to human beings. One Prophethood

01:13:47--> 01:13:58

It started with Adam. It ended with Mohammed but it was always the same thing. Call the people and that's what we're talking about tonight. Call the people to learn Illa Illa law. That's it.

01:14:00--> 01:14:13

That's the real Islam. The surrender in the submission, the obedience and sincerity in peace to the One God that's Islam and whoever does it send me a slammer

01:14:14--> 01:14:15

slammer

01:14:21--> 01:14:24

sister, American sister in New York,

01:14:25--> 01:14:34

heard a brother giving some lecture and telling sisters have to do this and that and and, you know, so and so he was really getting carried away.

01:14:35--> 01:14:40

She turned to another sister and she said now is that his lamb or his lamb.

01:14:42--> 01:14:46

But there's only one Islam isn't there. And whoever does Islam,

01:14:48--> 01:14:51

there are most most

01:14:52--> 01:14:59

because in Arabic, you don't use suffixes. After the verb. You use a prefix before the verb

01:15:00--> 01:15:01

The letter meme pronounced

01:15:03--> 01:15:05

when somebody calls to the prayer

01:15:07--> 01:15:09

model, this is called the

01:15:11--> 01:15:15

E. And whoever does it's called the Donna.

01:15:20--> 01:15:24

When somebody prays suddenly, here's the sellier.

01:15:29--> 01:15:34

column, the speaker will suffer the traveler from the word suffer.

01:15:35--> 01:15:51

So we understand when somebody does this action, and they submit themselves totally to Almighty God on his terms in peace. They have done what? They committed the action of Islam and they became a

01:15:52--> 01:15:53

what?

01:15:56--> 01:15:57

You want to be a what?

01:15:58--> 01:16:03

I use that one too in my programs. It's called Instant charter for everybody. I'll wrap it up there.

01:16:09--> 01:16:12

As long as they understood this message, you've done your job.

01:16:13--> 01:16:23

You have done your job. Did you communicate to them? There's one God, do what he wants you to do. If you'd like to carry it a step further, just a little bit further.

01:16:24--> 01:16:45

You can ask them, Do you have a prayer in your Bible that tells you how to pray to Almighty God, hallowed be thy name thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. They all have memorized this they don't know much else but they memorize this. Almost like we memorize that the Kersey.

01:16:46--> 01:16:52

When you come to that part, Gods will be done on earth as it is in heaven.

01:16:54--> 01:17:19

That means Islam. do God's will not your will. Don't give into your desires. Don't give into your lusts. Do the commandments and then ask them? Do you know about the 10 commandments? What is the first commandment? The first commandment it's in the book of Exodus chapter 20. In the book of Deuteronomy, chapter five, just go read it, check it out for yourself, and it says,

01:17:21--> 01:17:34

Thou shalt not have any other gods beside God. The worship is for who? One God? Well, some will say, well, that's Old Testament. That's true. It is that's for the many Israel. Yep.

01:17:35--> 01:17:42

So what does the Bible say in the New Testament? And I'll give you the reference to that when for a sharing with these people.

01:17:44--> 01:17:49

Mark 1229, Jesus was asked,

01:17:52--> 01:17:55

sarcastically, what's the greatest commandment?

01:17:57--> 01:18:09

And he responded, it is to know Oh, Israel, you can see who he's talking to many Israel to know Israel, the Lord your God is One Lord. How many?

01:18:12--> 01:18:14

everybody heard that? One?

01:18:15--> 01:18:17

One, Lord, one.

01:18:18--> 01:18:29

And you have to worship Him with all your heart and all your mind and all your strength. Some translations say you have to love him with all your mind, your heart and all your strength. And this also is in Islam, yes or no?

01:18:30--> 01:18:34

So show them. You have this, do you do it?

01:18:36--> 01:18:37

They say ah, but three.

01:18:38--> 01:18:42

You don't have three. It's not your book. This came later.

01:18:43--> 01:19:03

Our book is the last and final revelation. The blonde came in the same exact family of languages as your Bible did. It came in the Semitic language of Arabic. Your book came in Aramaic, the Jewish came in Hebrew, or Ybor, and all of them said the same thing. La Ilaha.

01:19:04--> 01:19:06

There's no difference

01:19:07--> 01:19:09

until somebody makes a difference.

01:19:10--> 01:19:23

If you know about the first and second Maccabees in the Catholic Bible, it doesn't appear in the Protestant Bible. We will know already that there are differences that were brought about by their scholars of their times.

01:19:24--> 01:19:44

What they used to divide up the people to try to call them to their particular men Hodge or madhhab. They did that. The Jews did it. The Christians did it. They have so many divisions. So if you see Muslims dividing into groups realize they're doing the same mistake as their predecessors.

01:19:46--> 01:19:59

It's not acceptable in God's plan for you to make a new religion. He has one for you. He's defined it for you. He told you the name of it in Edina in the law Hill

01:20:03--> 01:20:13

If somebody would like something other than Islam why mommy or daddy viral Islam, Medina, follow up Colombian, hula, hula karate Mila, serene.

01:20:14--> 01:20:15

He's never going to accept.

01:20:17--> 01:20:19

Most people will be losers.

01:20:20--> 01:20:22

I'm going to end now with what I started with.

01:20:24--> 01:20:26

I started out by talking to you

01:20:27--> 01:20:30

how the last look on came.

01:20:33--> 01:20:43

It's the same in the beginning, as it is in the end. And there's never any difference are your mo at mark to La Cocina con

01:20:58--> 01:21:00

And I have conferred upon you

01:21:10--> 01:21:21

and have chosen for you to submit to surrender to obey insincerity and peace to the will of Almighty God.

01:21:23--> 01:21:30

May Allah put us on that Dean to army May Allah make us of the people who understand this Deen

01:21:31--> 01:21:36

and share this name as the early people understood it and shared it.

01:21:38--> 01:21:46

In Alhamdulillah, Bill alameen, who allowed the Jelena muslimeen are salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.

01:21:50--> 01:21:51

steps required to

01:21:52--> 01:21:53

stay.

01:21:55--> 01:21:55

I can't hear you.

01:22:01--> 01:22:02

What do you think?

01:22:06--> 01:22:07

Okay, so

01:22:14--> 01:22:43

there was a lady, by the way, they're setting up, they're changing out their cameras getting ready to do second party. So that's going on towards the lady. It's not Muslim. She's been communicating with one of our Muslim Brothers here, right here in eastern province, to email. And he thought I have to go somewhere tonight to a program and she said, Oh, well, I hope you have good success for your program. As an afterthought, she put me in there, unless it's one of those programs where you're trying to convert Christians, in this case, I hope you're not successful.

01:22:44--> 01:22:50

And he wrote back and he said, Well, it is a matter of fact, we have an ex preacher who's going to be given the program.

01:22:58--> 01:23:17

Often we have folks who sit in a crowd who already know everything there is to know about everything in Islam, and all they have time to do really is just watch and see if we make a mistake. And I always delight them, because I always make sure to make one mistake or more for them. So those mistakes that you saw, were probably intentional.

01:23:32--> 01:23:47

The most common question we always get is, how did you get to Islam? That's the most common question. Tell us about your story coming to stem? How many of you already have heard it or watched it or read it? Raise your hand?

01:23:52--> 01:23:56

Okay, about half the people here have already heard it. Well, no, I have to tell you what Joe said.

01:24:03--> 01:24:03

You're not.

01:24:07--> 01:24:08

Home. See?

01:24:09--> 01:24:26

You got it. All right. This is the famous character that people from the area called blood shell, they always talk about this guy. But unless they're from Syria, because these usually associated with hunts, which is in Syria, but if they're from there, and they say no, he's Turkish.

01:24:32--> 01:24:37

won't mention anybody's name. Who might be like that, by the way.

01:24:42--> 01:24:44

His name is Ahmed, Cody,

01:24:45--> 01:24:47

Cody, you know, Kurdistan,

01:24:48--> 01:24:49

touches Syria and Turkey.

01:24:54--> 01:24:59

Anyhow, I want to do what Joe said. They asked Joe how to give a speech. He didn't want to give the speech.

01:25:00--> 01:25:05

give a speech give a speech. Oh, he got up there in front of him and said, you know what I'm gonna talk about. They said, yeah, go

01:25:06--> 01:25:10

to everybody. No, they said, yeah, we all know he said then I don't need to talk about it. Neela

01:25:12--> 01:25:21

we got him up there another time said, Come on, come on. Do you have a speech and he got up there. He said, You don't want to talk about? Well, they learned their lesson. They said, No, we don't. He said, No. Why should I waste my time?

01:25:25--> 01:25:27

Come on, give us space. Come on.

01:25:29--> 01:25:36

Okay, you know what I'm gonna talk about half of them said, Yes, we do. The other half said, No, we don't. He said, okay, those of you that don't know.

01:25:44--> 01:25:46

So those of you that know the story about our

01:25:50--> 01:25:51

next question.

01:25:59--> 01:26:02

One of my souvenirs from Hodge. Anyhow.

01:26:12--> 01:26:13

de la. No.

01:26:15--> 01:26:30

By the way, you can get the whole story on our website share islam.com sH AR ri is lm calm. And thank you for giving me a chance to get my commercial again, said it. This question asks about the Trinity.

01:26:35--> 01:26:40

And then it asks about the different divisions in Christianity and their differences.

01:26:43--> 01:26:48

And it says that these differences should point should be the first point start with

01:26:50--> 01:26:55

Oh, I thought it was a question. Oh, no. What should be the first point so okay.

01:26:56--> 01:26:57

I have my thumb or I'm sorry.

01:27:00--> 01:27:03

Sometimes people do send up it doesn't have a question is tell me what to do.

01:27:06--> 01:27:08

I'm used to that my wife does it all the time.

01:27:10--> 01:27:14

By the way, everybody knows who I am, right? Everybody know who I am?

01:27:15--> 01:27:18

My name is Yousef. My name is can you say use it.

01:27:20--> 01:27:25

You got it right on the first time. All these years, my wife still pretty useless.

01:27:37--> 01:27:38

The Trinity

01:27:39--> 01:27:40

is not mentioned

01:27:43--> 01:27:44

in the Bible.

01:27:45--> 01:27:47

Not in the Old Testament. Not in the New Testament.

01:27:49--> 01:28:15

But it is mentioned in the Koran. Can I love to say it like that? was a go, huh? Shin Yes, the Quran clarifies your book for you. Let's look in the Quran. And we'll find how to deal with these things. The word Bible is not in the Bible. But it's in the Quran. Many times it says GitHub, GitHub, GitHub, GitHub, you know what the word Bible means? They don't know.

01:28:16--> 01:28:26

They say the Holy Book of God. What does it mean? It comes from Greek videos. It means book. That's all it means.

01:28:28--> 01:28:33

And they put a big B, just like they used to make g on God.

01:28:34--> 01:28:35

But it means book.

01:28:38--> 01:28:45

We're the ones that give it the proper distinction of keytab, which means they book and they are the

01:28:47--> 01:29:01

people of the Bible. So Bible is mentioned over and over and over and over and they're mentioned Jews and Christians, and also people that the book was such a nice reference

01:29:02--> 01:29:08

throughout the Quran, even some of them are called believers in the Quran.

01:29:10--> 01:29:19

Yeah. How many of you didn't know that anybody didn't know that? They were called believers in the Quran. Present tense of the verb. Some of them are believers.

01:29:22--> 01:29:23

Yes.

01:29:25--> 01:29:35

I'll give you one clue. isn't sure I mean, we're on chapter 100 chapter three verse 110. And you know the beginning of it gluten Cairo Metin.

01:29:37--> 01:29:39

regenda NASS

01:29:40--> 01:29:41

una bella roof

01:29:43--> 01:29:44

unhuman car

01:29:45--> 01:29:46

to Minami la

01:29:49--> 01:29:59

Haha, somebody does know the rest of the verse. We get a big enough crowd you can find one booster we'll stop right there cuz we didn't know the rest is it and l

01:30:00--> 01:30:08

The people of the book had believed it would have been better for them from them, or those who have Eman, but most of them

01:30:09--> 01:30:18

are passing through their classic, which didn't say Kaffir says this obedient. That's very true. So

01:30:20--> 01:30:27

another question is going to come up all the time they asked about these differences, should we talk about their differences and so on.

01:30:28--> 01:30:42

If you want to use that, you're going to run into a problem yourself. Because if you said, Okay, you guys divided up into so many groups that that should make, you know, right there your religions wrong. What will you do when they point to all the divisions in this town? What will you say?

01:30:46--> 01:31:08

The prophet SAW Islam told us as the Jews and Christians divided up into so many groups, we're going to divide even more and all of them are going to be in the fire it except for one. And that's the one that me and my companions are on today, yes or no. So if you already know that, don't use that as a criterion because you just proven yourself wrong.

01:31:10--> 01:31:19

If they ask you tell him that's a prophecy. That's a prophecy of Muhammad that we would divide up, and all of them are gonna go to hell except one.

01:31:22--> 01:31:30

Now, this makes some people angry. By the way, when I come to this point, because I wrote an article about this on the internet. It's been there for years called groups.

01:31:32--> 01:31:41

Everybody's happy with you until you get to the group thing and you go, don't you mention my group? Or you mentioned the soup is in the Goofy's? But don't you come to my group?

01:31:43--> 01:31:46

Okay, she mentioned those guys. Why don't you come to my group?

01:31:48--> 01:31:56

When they asked me again, I mentioned when I come back to the country, they'll ask me, are you assuming? I say No, I'm not.

01:31:59--> 01:32:04

Why? Well, I'm not gonna leave out the Quran. I follow the Quran and Sunnah.

01:32:09--> 01:32:11

Anybody here only farmer's son,

01:32:12--> 01:32:13

de

01:32:15--> 01:32:16

la Muslim.

01:32:18--> 01:32:20

That's Yeah, stop with that.

01:32:21--> 01:32:30

I know some of the tareekh is out here. You'd be in big trouble for that. But you know, you have to get this shirt. And you have to you know what?

01:32:34--> 01:32:37

I just tell him I'm not smart enough to do all that. I'm just keep it simple.

01:32:39--> 01:32:50

What's the first point to start with, and almost back to what I showed you in the space, this is what the prophet Sussman told more than bingeable to do when he appointed him as the governor

01:32:51--> 01:32:56

of Yemen. And he sat down he said, I'm sending you to the people of the book, Jews and Christians.

01:32:59--> 01:33:00

Teach him tell he

01:33:02--> 01:33:10

let them understand the true meaning of La ilaha illAllah. And that's what the companions had to deal with for 13 years.

01:33:12--> 01:33:25

They didn't get into these intricacies of VIP day and get into the divisions of how you work with dividing up the different kinds of Zipcar inheritance. This wasn't the issue. The issue is what

01:33:27--> 01:34:05

tauheed La ilaha illAllah there's only one gun towards them. And how do we understand that? By the way, if you want an easy website to really explain, tell, he'd really make it easy for anybody. Many priests and preachers have already come to Islam from two websites that we use nada la.com that's got to tell he'd covered and the other one which compares Christianity to Islam, called Islam code. But both of these are at our main website share islam.com sH ar e is le m.com.

01:34:06--> 01:34:07

Nice question.

01:34:13--> 01:34:17

Somebody asked if we believe in the same God, why do I need to be Muslim?

01:34:20--> 01:34:43

We already discussed that really. You can love God, but how do you know you're going to be loved back? But let me make it real easy. I want to make it easy for people to understand. Because if you start quoting attendees to them, they're not going to understand that don't even know what it is. We start breaking down words out of the Quran to them that's not gonna make sense to them. They don't know Arabic.

01:34:44--> 01:34:55

Muslims are even starting to say things like well, you know, we all believe in the same God. Why can't we just get along live in peace? Let me get my degree, make some money, have a big house and we'll all be allowed to die the dog.

01:34:57--> 01:34:59

No, no, that's true.

01:35:00--> 01:35:00

What's happening?

01:35:04--> 01:35:08

So I want to make this so that it's clear, crystal clear.

01:35:09--> 01:35:39

And I give him the example of the little boy who comes into his mother and he says, Mama, I love you. I love you, Mama. And she says, You know what? I love you too. But will you do something for me? I'll do anything for your mama. Okay, I want you to go out in the kitchen and I want you to wash the dishes for me. Because you know, my diabetes is acting up. My legs are swelling. I can't stand out there and wash dishes. Will you please go wash the dishes?

01:35:40--> 01:35:45

He's gone for a while. And he comes back. I love you, Mama.

01:35:46--> 01:35:52

Did you wash the dishes? Nope. But I brought you some chocolate candy.

01:35:54--> 01:35:55

She's diabetic. Remember?

01:35:57--> 01:35:59

She's I can't eat that.

01:36:00--> 01:36:02

He says, I know.

01:36:03--> 01:36:04

But I can.

01:36:06--> 01:36:10

And I got a good deal at the store. So he eat the candy.

01:36:12--> 01:36:27

Does he love her? Or he loves himself? Next day. Mother, I love you. Will you please go out and mow the grass for me? I have hay fever real bad today. I can't go outside is killing me.

01:36:28--> 01:36:35

He leaves. He comes back. Did you mow the grass? No. But I brought you some flowers.

01:36:36--> 01:36:37

She's got asthma.

01:36:39--> 01:36:45

She said get that over me. You know, I can't be around that. He said I can and I like these flowers.

01:36:48--> 01:36:49

Who does he love?

01:36:51--> 01:37:00

Yeah, and that's the same thing for anybody who said they love a law. But they don't want to follow Mohammed Salaam I live with someone.

01:37:01--> 01:37:05

It's not reciprocal, and alive is not gonna love you back.

01:37:06--> 01:37:31

Because you have not loved him on his terms. His terms are a complete and total love that has nothing else in it whatsoever. It's mentioned in the Bible. In the Old Testament, it's mentioned in the New Testament. And it's mentioned in Islam the same way unless and until you reach the level where a law is more to you than anything in this earth or anything in the universe you have not submitted.

01:37:33--> 01:37:42

When you can find anything on this planet, which you take over a law, you are no longer considered as a Muslim.

01:37:43--> 01:38:29

Alone, Allah orders you to do something, you do it because he ordered you he orders you not to do something you don't do it, because he ordered you and you don't change his religion. Because if you do, you'll be the lowest of the low in the next slide. This is mentioned in the Bible. This is mentioned in the Quran. This is clear from the monotheistic religions, Allah has one and only one way for salvation and redemption. It's to believe in him as one to make Toba to him to repent to him, and to be sincere in it and to leave off sending as much as you can. It doesn't mean you're going to be perfect. We already know that. But it does mean you're going to try your best. And

01:38:29--> 01:38:59

you're going to also apologize and ask for forgiveness. When you make mistakes. And you're not going to pass your mistakes off to somebody else and say he died for my sins, you are responsible for what you did, not somebody else. And if you believe in God, and if you're trying to please God and trying to obey his commandments, then you're already in Islam anyway, even if you didn't know what it was.

01:39:00--> 01:39:05

So you don't have to change you just have to make some corrections like I did.

01:39:06--> 01:39:13

Many Christians are so close to Islam, they just need to make some corrections, straighten out the arcada

01:39:14--> 01:39:36

straighten out some of the actions that they do leave off some things they've been doing, and then keep going with the enthusiasm, the excitement and the dedication they already have to Christianity and Prophet sallallahu wasallam said that the Christian that comes to Islam has double reward because they believed in Jesus and then they believed in Muhammad and the message with which he was sent.

01:39:38--> 01:39:39

Double reward

01:39:41--> 01:39:59

but who hears the message and rejects it. And this is in the Tafseer of one mummy until he got real Islam Medina with tafsir explains that the resource Sai Salaam said and it's in sable heart that whoever hears about me and this message from the Jews

01:40:00--> 01:40:04

And Christians and they don't accept this lamb they will be in the fire.

01:40:06--> 01:40:14

Once you've made it clear, you've understood it You no longer have any option except seven

01:40:15--> 01:40:17

to hear and obey

01:40:19--> 01:40:32

the two things that begin a story in the Bible begin the story in Quran as far as the first human being Adam la Salaam are similar. Adam

01:40:33--> 01:40:47

and the devil. The devil was ordered to do something. What was he ordered to do? Bow down. Make sure dude, did he do it? No, he refused to do what Allah ordered him to do. Yes.

01:40:48--> 01:40:52

That was the only thing he did wrong, wouldn't it? But he refused.

01:40:54--> 01:41:00

Adam was ordered the opposite. Don't do something. Don't eat the fruit. Get eat it.

01:41:02--> 01:41:13

Really repent. Yes, he did. He made Toba with the devil repent? Will he ever repent? No, it's already known from NDP number will repent.

01:41:14--> 01:41:21

That's the reason the devil is going to hell. It's not because he didn't make the such that is because he won't repent afterwards.

01:41:23--> 01:41:26

Nobody's perfect. Adam one perfect nevels not perfect.

01:41:27--> 01:41:31

Could the devil be forgetting in given if he repented?

01:41:33--> 01:41:48

won't answer unless you know the source of this one. Say I don't know. But if you know the date, then you can say Ya know, there's two or the one. It's talking about Moses and Yellowstone. But he said a song from these two Hadees. We know

01:41:49--> 01:42:20

that Jesus asked. And Moses asked a lot about the subject. And Allah is willing to forgive. Even the devil, even he believes can be forgiven if he will just go to the grave of Adam and put his head down and say a stop for all law. If you will do that. Allah will forgive him. But he won't do it. You know what he said? He said, I wouldn't do it while he's alive. I'm sure not going to do it after he's dead.

01:42:24--> 01:42:31

It doesn't matter and resources himself. It doesn't matter how much a person has sinned in the past

01:42:33--> 01:42:43

even mountains of sin but if he brings a lie Lala and sincere Toba to a law he really is sorry for what he did. A lot can forgive it.

01:42:45--> 01:43:03

So Salaam asked his companions a question. He said Do you know who is the worst of the human beings? They said a lower Rasool Allah. He said it's the one who did so much if them and Macias so many sins, that he doesn't believe a locket forgive him.

01:43:05--> 01:43:15

For so salatu salam said, with the words that human beings is the one who did so many sins, that he doesn't believe that Allah could forgive him.

01:43:17--> 01:43:18

Which means what?

01:43:19--> 01:43:21

Always have hope that Allah forgive you.

01:43:23--> 01:43:46

And another rewire he said, the worst person is the one who sits on arafat. He made hij. And then he didn't believe that Allah forgave him. Always know that Eliza before Rahim, he's the forgiver in the merciful, but don't lose sight of the fact of the rest of the ayah. In lithographer Rahim, Russia de lica

01:43:47--> 01:44:15

that punishment is still there. So remember, Toba Toba dova to repent. And these people cannot repent unless they believe in the law, and they're willing to submit to Him. And it's not my religion. The question asked that my religion No, it's not your religion. It's not my religion. It's his religion. Sure to answer the question, according to the way that it should be answered, not according to the way they ask it. Next.

01:44:20--> 01:44:27

What about people that God believe in the law but not in your religion? That's pretty easy. Really? I just said it.

01:44:28--> 01:44:43

There is no religion except a law's way. Dean doesn't mean religion. Dean is a bigger word than that. That convener kumala Dean, that said, anybody that doesn't believe Laila Moore's Law,

01:44:44--> 01:44:47

including Boolean, which are atheists.

01:44:48--> 01:44:56

You can say that to an atheist atheist has been his way of life. Yes. But it's not a religion is it? So Dean is bigger than that.

01:44:57--> 01:44:59

Way of Life, complete way of life, everybody

01:45:00--> 01:45:05

Get away with life. How do you want to spend it? You want to do what he wants you to do? Or what you want to do up to you.

01:45:07--> 01:45:23

Forget about religion, man may religions are all wrong. I'll be the first to say that you have to say that. That's what La ilaha illAllah means there isn't any other deity to worship, meaning there is no religion except the laws way.

01:45:30--> 01:45:46

How do you talk to people that believe in what causes pleasure? In what feels good? Yeah, this is a good one. Talk to them in serious terms, you say, Do you really want something feels good? Only it keeps on going doesn't matter what you do in this life, it's gonna run out.

01:45:48--> 01:45:49

It will run out.

01:45:50--> 01:45:53

When I was over in Riyadh,

01:45:55--> 01:45:56

we stopped in a storm.

01:45:58--> 01:46:00

And I was talking to all the people who work there wasn't a Muslim.

01:46:02--> 01:46:06

And I was asking him what he'd like to do. He said, I'd like to learn to play the piano.

01:46:08--> 01:46:20

I said Why? He said, because I want to get peace and I believe that will give me peace in my heart. I said external peace you have to get from the outside and bring in will always go away.

01:46:21--> 01:46:24

Even if it brought you peace for a while it's going to go away.

01:46:26--> 01:46:29

At the end of the song, then what?

01:46:31--> 01:46:37

And what if you lose the piano? What have you can't play anymore? What have you go deaf? What do you have?

01:46:39--> 01:46:41

cable it drink alcohol.

01:46:42--> 01:46:45

That's going to go away. Oh, for a second or two. They'd be like, wow.

01:46:47--> 01:46:48

Look pretty stupid.

01:46:50--> 01:46:52

People smoke cigarettes. I look cool.

01:46:54--> 01:46:56

Dude, he gets cancer and his lip falls off.

01:46:57--> 01:47:10

didn't look too cool anymore. Are you see the guy, it's got the hole here. So you can read out of here because he's ruined his esophagus. Or he's got other problems from smoking. Hmm. He wants to hold a cigarette too. It

01:47:13--> 01:47:14

looks cool.

01:47:17--> 01:47:26

All of it goes away, then. Wealth goes away. Beauty of a woman goes away. All other things here that you want to feel good.

01:47:28--> 01:47:35

Go away? How would you like to have it so never go away? And it only gets better and better and better?

01:47:37--> 01:47:45

Would you like that? We want to know about a place that we can go and have anything you want any way you want. And it's never ever going to go away.

01:47:47--> 01:47:56

Talk to him about gender. And then mention By the way, if you don't accept it, you wind up in a place where you're never gonna have a nice day.

01:48:06--> 01:48:13

This question says sometimes you're trying to call somebody to Islam, you're not able to shake their faith? How do you get over that?

01:48:17--> 01:48:20

It's not our job to destroy people's faith.

01:48:22--> 01:48:48

It's not our job to shake up their faith. The job is to present the correct faith and let them make adjustments to what they have. The problem that I've found for most Muslims, you don't really understand your own. And you don't understand there's and then there's the communication problem. And you're saying things to them that really don't make sense. And they say thanks. Anyway, I'll keep what I got. I like what I got.

01:48:49--> 01:48:53

I recommend in this case, send them to our website,

01:48:54--> 01:48:58

or download one of our programs called What is this lamb

01:49:00--> 01:49:03

and put it on a CD and do not put a label?

01:49:05--> 01:49:15

Just put a big black question mark, nothing else? Big Black question mark. That's it. And give it to them anomala up and say I got a question.

01:49:16--> 01:49:19

I got a question. Will you you listen to this.

01:49:22--> 01:49:34

And tell me what you think. What is it is the guy in Texas? He's talking about religion. I wonder if you help me with this. Listen to it. Tell me what you think. It's called share Islam.

01:49:35--> 01:49:46

Don't tell them that. They bag if they say I didn't like it? Yeah, me neither. And give them something else. But most likely, they're gonna say whoa, this is some points I never thought of

01:49:48--> 01:49:49

send them to the website.

01:49:54--> 01:49:59

How do we tackle propaganda like cartoons terrorism, marriage misconduct.

01:50:00--> 01:50:07

It's meant the marriage that I should the young age probably or four wives probably. Well,

01:50:12--> 01:50:32

I know I've said it over and over tonight, I'll say it again, we've already answered that on our website. You can go to our website and get the answers to all of those because we went through them categorically, I took 14 questions, harsh attacks, that came from the Arab Christians seven years ago on the internet, and we answered every single one of them.

01:50:33--> 01:50:40

And when people take the time to listen and read, they become Muslims, or at least they shut up. I call it Sharda. or shut up.

01:50:43--> 01:51:08

It happened that a gentleman came to me in a program like this. And when it was all over, he said, I got a question. How come you Muslims are worshipping a black box in the desert? Whoa, gay got one here. Everybody sit back down, sit down, sit down, started up again. Got the microphone back outside. Okay, here we go. And I explained to him in 20 minutes, the concept of the worship is Muslims, and the direction of the Qibla.

01:51:09--> 01:51:12

And the historic evidence is for it.

01:51:13--> 01:51:15

And he said a Chateau de la la la la.

01:51:21--> 01:51:22

Fantastic.

01:51:24--> 01:51:28

But you got to have the right knowledge and you got to understand where they're coming from. So use your website

01:51:29--> 01:51:33

is free shares lam.com sH ar e is?

01:51:35--> 01:51:43

How do you deal with atheists? atheists are not the easiest to deal with. I have heard people in the past say, oh, they're the best because they already say law a law.

01:51:47--> 01:52:14

That's not true. That is not true. They are not the easiest, at least in my estimation. I happen to have one of my own sons who's an atheist. And we have tried and brothers from right here have sat with him and tried and we've all tried and talk to him and give him evidences, but his head is as hard as a rock. He just laughs It's up to a lot of guiding and I keep making it off for him every day.

01:52:17--> 01:52:27

You ask about methods methods to convert? Let me explain something to you. I said it in the beginning, I'll say it again. You do not convert people to Islam.

01:52:29--> 01:52:36

If anybody here thinks you can convert somebody to Islam, just forget about it. Just forget it.

01:52:38--> 01:52:40

Don't even go there.

01:52:41--> 01:52:42

Your job.

01:52:43--> 01:52:47

Search certainly is not going to be any different than the prophet SAW Islam.

01:52:48--> 01:53:01

Are you in a better position than he was? I don't think so. Did he convert people? Absolutely not. There is no such thing as conversion by the sword, or by force.

01:53:03--> 01:53:19

It's a reversion back to their original state that they were in when they were born, you're asking somebody to consider a message. That's all a message from your Creator, which is worship Him and not what he created. That's the message.

01:53:21--> 01:53:33

In a nutshell, you can say it in two phrases and put it on a bumper sticker and paraded all over the world. Worship the Creator, not his creations.

01:53:35--> 01:53:35

That's it.

01:53:36--> 01:53:41

Worship the Creator, not the creations?

01:53:42--> 01:53:46

Yes, because it says Easy as that.

01:54:03--> 01:54:06

A person wants to know if we become

01:54:08--> 01:54:11

I see where they pulled the word from you pull it from the army.

01:54:16--> 01:54:16

What is

01:54:22--> 01:54:23

serene

01:54:29--> 01:54:56

it's the state of loss like bankruptcy. You can't pay for Sol Sol Elias Sallam said you know who the loser is the real poor person who is it? They were the same like you know, is the miskeen or something like that. And he said that the biggest loser the biggest of all the poorest that you know is the one who comes on the Day of Judgment. He has a mountain of good deeds

01:54:58--> 01:55:00

but then the people come

01:55:00--> 01:55:01

To take the rights on him

01:55:02--> 01:55:45

until he doesn't have anything left because they took all of his good deeds, they took everything from him because of the things he did against them. He cheated them, he did so and so until there's nothing left for him at all. But there's still a line of people. So they begin to put their deeds on him their bad deeds onto him. And as a result, he goes to hell, that's a loser. real big time loser. That means you can't pay up on the Day of Judgment. It's called yamo, his sab now this is a little different than maybe somebody heard about before, you know, about yamo kiama. Kim to stand, that's resurrection to be back up again.

01:55:47--> 01:55:59

Then there's also yamo hisab. And that's where you have to account for everything he said means to like, settle your accounts, you go to the bank and square things up, you make a SAB.

01:56:01--> 01:56:06

But you can't make a sap if you don't have to pay with Can you be in trouble?

01:56:07--> 01:56:16

And one of the things that can really help you a lot is calling other people to good deeds. Because if I call you to a good deed, and you do a good deed, I get the same reward. Yes.

01:56:18--> 01:56:24

So if I call everybody do this, do this. And I'm doing it too, of course, then I get more and more and more.

01:56:26--> 01:56:39

So if I don't call people, I'm losing a great opportunity to get a lot of free wood deeds. Yes. I mean, maybe I pray camela. I hope I do.

01:56:40--> 01:56:43

But how much more war will I get if I ask everybody here to do it.

01:56:45--> 01:56:51

And now I'm going to tell you if you don't normally pray, if you don't normally get up in the night and do camel lamb.

01:56:52--> 01:56:54

Do it tonight. Do it.

01:56:55--> 01:56:57

Get up Miko, and do it.

01:57:00--> 01:57:07

And make big dogs at the end of it. Allah will let you make Tao for him. And he can do it. He can just open up all kinds of doors for you.

01:57:09--> 01:57:25

It will Angela and tell him I want to watch somebody's interest loan. I want to be there when they do it. Because that's what I do every single time I asked a lot that over and over and over. And then since we started this journey,

01:57:26--> 01:57:35

since we started since I left my house to come for Hajj on the 24th day of December.

01:57:36--> 01:57:40

Since then, until now, I have averaged seen

01:57:41--> 01:57:44

for people every day. Don't drink too slow.

01:57:46--> 01:57:47

But I asked for it, did you?

01:57:50--> 01:57:51

I asked for it.

01:57:52--> 01:58:01

And I asked for it. But I'm actually greedy. I'm asking a lot. How come it wasn't five a day. And invited by my Noah would ask for 10.

01:58:06--> 01:58:11

I'm telling you that if you don't ask a law, you're not making a lot happy.

01:58:12--> 01:58:28

But you don't have to keep asking for new cars and bigger houses, better jobs. Ask a law for something that's gonna last for you. As game just ask for for DOS Illallah. Say I want the highest level of gender. Just ask for that.

01:58:31--> 01:58:38

Every single time you pray us for that after every single foreign Salah there's a guy which is accepted by law. They say

01:58:40--> 01:58:53

all you have to do after every single third salon just make law or law. This one I need I want this I wonder, oh I need to see somebody interesting. I want to be there I want to watch somebody say a Chateau de la la la la.

01:58:54--> 01:58:55

And he will put you there.

01:58:57--> 01:59:35

I want to see somebody enter Islam. I want to watch them. Learn how to make Hulu. I get to do that with somebody just the other night, took my time took him somewhere somebody's house I said let us have this room. Just five minutes. I took him in there in private because his only objection he said I would do it. But I got a problem. I'm afraid in this kingdom. If I said Chara, then they're gonna be all over me. I said for what? He said, Well, Muslims have to prayer, they beat them up over here. I said, Whoa, whoa, whoa, what do you get this idea? He said, somebody told me that if I become a Muslim, that I'm going to get beat up if I don't pray and I don't know how to pray.

01:59:39--> 01:59:48

Okay, we're going to do two things First, I'm going to tell you, they didn't tell you the right way. Second thing is this go learn how to pray. So I show him how to make

01:59:50--> 01:59:54

a chart with me first and then we did the Salah. I said what do you think he said,

01:59:55--> 01:59:59

Okay, let's go tell the people who came out in front of the people. You were there.

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

What did he do?

02:00:02--> 02:00:03

shadow

02:00:04--> 02:00:05

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