Number two, the law
law students Republic,
humble enough to go to
And he said, this is going to be interesting
to everybody who speaks English.
Okay, what I'll do, I'm gonna have to do a simultaneous translation because my native language, of course, is I'm from Texas. So I'll be translating from Texas to English.
I can do that, by the way, home, they learn
the phrases to a law. And we thank him for the opportunity to be here. And we always ask for the Peace and blessings to be on all of these profits, from Adam to Christ. And for all of those who follow the righteous way till the last day.
Then usually we make the statement of shadows, there is a hidden law, which means that bear witness that there really is only one God to worship, and all worship is for him exclusively. And we bear witness to the messengers shifts, and as such to the previous messengers and before him. And that, of course, is going to lead us right into our topic tonight, which is the messenger shift of Jesus Christ.
From the Islamic perspective, of course, as we go along, I want you to remember that you came here to get another perspective of this should be different from what you know,
this is the whole idea. So
still, there will be things of questions, ideas, concepts that come to your mind, that you would like clarification on. So this is one they're going to circulate among the student handouts to use of paper, just in case you weren't prepared, we are hopefully, and also pens if you don't have pens. And then if you don't have a right, we'll get a signature for you. And we'll get your questions and your responses as much as we can, before the program is over. So that when we end the program, we'll be able to then go into instantly answering the
questions you have, in the case that we're not able to handle all of them. recording time, because that happens. We do have a website that you can go to, to pick up a lot of information there, actually a series a website. And then in addition to that, we have a place that you can ask [email protected]
the websites are closed. Islam always.com is slammed tomorrow.com. And he slammed yesterday.com. Sort of a sense of time thing happening there.
The one missing is called Islam today, that was actually our first web site, but
it now belongs to somebody else. So we have the one surrounding
the subject of messenger shifts in general. And then we'll come specifically to Jesus Christ.
in his room, there is actually more than just the word processors for two words, one is NaVi and the other ones were seul. And all these messengers
are not they fall in the category of unviable profit,
This other distinction called oversold is one who delivers our soul a message. So he's calling
in English, carry the status. So I have to explain to you from the standpoint that the meaning of it is a very profound statement to say somebody is a messenger. All of them fall in the category of Ambien, but only certain ones are messengers and those who come with a book or a writing are considered to be messengers. Therefore, immediately, you know, Moses, of course, had his commandments that came on time. So he has to be a messenger, because he has something that
many of you don't know that
Abraham actually had written messages became lost over the years. But there is some apocrypha, which refers to that. And then Islam he is considered one of the messengers for having something written, as does
David and Suma because if you remember they have a response attributed to them. And Arabic they're called the war.
Now somebody's taking care of the ship.
Go out for you guys.
Some of what I'm going to tell you is
known to you already some of it
is going to be known to the Muslim. But some of the things I'll talk about tonight, even some of the Muslims won't really be conversant in that it will be surprised to learn some of
some of what I'm going to share with you will mean
where we're alive, we have commonalities, some things, you will do more like a comparison. And some things may seem strange. But that's the whole idea. And I hope you enjoy the program.
I do a lot of etymology. As a matter of fact, if I were to hang a sign up for my office, it would say,
at large. Now, how many of you know what that would mean?
All right, this is my tiny University.
Of course, it means I'm a pet doctor. Anyway.
It's the study of words, is to take the word and break it down, to see where it came
The word here as we broke down was our some luck and one who has messages received. And so that is, of course, what we were following up first note, we'll come to the next profit after
David and truly mind there's the war or songs is going to be Jesus, the Christ, peace and blessings be upon him. And then we'll see what is his status.
According to Islam, we have information that says that he has a wolf
has a book, therefore he is a prophet, messenger.
This means that he had something that was with him physically, that doesn't exist today anymore in its original form. But there's a lot of reference to it. Of course, the Christians immediately know it as gospel. That's what you will call the gospel. Or you may call it by its name, the NGO, or the evangel. If you know it, in English version, it's called the banjo, and then Arabic NGO.
Now, do we have any Arab Christians with us tonight?
that this thing, but in no one there are Christians.
They have a Bible, in their language called, it's called devil.
Fitness, or visit means holy, the holy key tap.
And you say, holy book, and arvixe, just like you say, Holy Bible Bible is from conagra.
from Beverly Hills, it means Simple as that.
The word Bible doesn't appear in the Bible.
But it appears in
many times. In fact, people who follow the Bible are called cab, people in the world keytab in Arabic.
So Jesus peace be upon us, with a few tab or wookies, therefore for full
profit and a full messenger of God, to a Muslim.
What we know about him,
April Fool's the Scripture,
Holy Scripture, since the time of Abraham, and Moses and David pencil,
and this Scriptures, teaching that there will be one who will come
and he will be a miracle worker, and he will be a messenger to the people and he will read in the last days.
That close attention to this because you will find this executive says Jesus Christ.
First of all,
in order to change, what is wrong
with Muslims believe it's going to come back. I have no doubt about this. Muslims believe Jesus the Christ will return and
therefore, he fulfilled the scripture that is coming. His miracle birth. He preaches a message and is also in the lion's den.
Yet Mohamad VC funding still fits in there as a prophet and a messenger. Because he did what he testified to the messenger before him, and all of them before and he also mentioned that Jesus wouldn't be back. So there's plenty of room here for everybody.
But he wouldn't solve
the problem that the Jewish have with Jesus
Okay is that they don't want to accept the number of things. First of all, they don't want to accept it is worth
your money except that to match the Immaculate Conception. And when he says that he is the Prophet, they don't want to accept that he is the Christ or the Messiah. And they don't want to accept that. You know that he did miracles, nor do they want to accept his claim.
They're only looking for the Messiah to come in unless they prove that
they don't believe that the advantage is taking place yet. For the Muslim, they say, No, he did come. He had medical birth, he was born American, there was no human intervention there.
Jesus is the eponymous born and one of the first miracles is that he actually has a newborn baby, and defended his mother against the charges that they brought against her for having an affair or something. Instead of representing herself, the baby spoke and struggled with people very much and you know, a little baby, speaking with anyone. But that is what we learned from
that he spoke to defendants his mother. So this is the first one, but not certainly not the last. People being cured of diseases, and diseases, etc, people who were named crippled, and so on being able to walk in people who are born blind. And now they can see not restoring sight, which is certainly a miracle in itself. somebody's trying to figure, but how about somebody that never saw before? And now they can see, that would be amazing.
And then even
hearing people, how about curing people to death, and he brought somebody back to life with edge, we've been dead. None of these things
are known. These are not things that you could just say, Well, yeah, he's just lucky guess or
So here is the Jesus of the Quran, who does all of these.
It's interesting that this is mentioned, by the way invite. And it even talks about prophets before Jesus did the same thing. Even the bones of Zico were used to bring back the dead, and also that others were cured of blindness and sickness and so on. But the main point here is that Jesus fulfills all of the things that were mentioned in the test.
One of the problem really comes in as far as the Muslim point of view, that the Jews did not want to accept that Jesus was coming with this message. Because in fact, he was very, very hard on if you read the New Testament, you find that he took a whip, and he drove the money changes out of the temple. And those being whipped, considered the Dublin were nice
to kind of put them out of business and from different movies.
So there was a lot of objection to what he was saying. And he called them vipers, which is f
of five burn the snake, and also mentions that he said that if your righteousness didn't exceed theirs, that you couldn't even go to heaven. So the Pharisees, the ones who are charged with the responsibility as a religion, as for the rabbi's, etc, at that time, they were really being put down by Jesus. So you can understand why that they had a real thing to try to discredit him from the beginning. They didn't want anything to do with him. And they tried in every possible way to shut down his message and those who thought
he had quite a following it at least from what we understand from the Bible, because it says very clearly that in all four gospels mentioned, it's not the four gospels, Matthew, Mark, Luke and john don't necessarily agree on every point. And often, some of them don't have this part of the story. Some have that part. Some actually contradict how some of the things happen. But this one particular event is clear. And it's on all four. All four gospels talk about the what we call
on Sunday. We noticed on Sunday, when they laid down the palms as he entered the palm of leaves or you know the big things that they did on streets. And then he wrote in on the donkey,
and they were laying them down and saying says Hosanna Hosanna. And then he comes in on the donkey
it looks like he was well received on that Sunday.
And Passover is coming up on the next
Saturday because that was a piece of plastic in the room. And it Friday when the sun goes down, they have to shut down everything and they can't do anything till Sunday.
So, of course we know it was
Put on the cross on Friday man in law for the cross some Friday before the sun went down. Otherwise the window was there for actually putting the separate point here is what happened Sunday. I mean, everybody's going for it. But what happened by Wednesday night or Thursday night? And you know, when everything falls apart?
Have you ever wondered about that?
How could everybody before you on Sunday, and by Thursday, they're ready to hang you? What happened?
And that's a good question. You can look to some of the Apocrypha. And you can look to some of the the recent archaeological finds of some of this text and tried to discover, there's I have spent a lot of time with that. And will be very candid in telling you that I don't think I found anything out does anybody didn't find the form you're after, you can go to Barnes and Noble and buy the books and probably find them with a better dissertation on the subject that I came up with anyway. But the point was that they all agree that there's a lot more out there than what we really have today in in the King James Version, the Bible.
So that means that I need to speak about the book a little bit, the Bible is not today in English, just to give permission.
The English language didn't exist until the
hang to the Anglican, and I mean, the England and when they went in
the Normans mid second
was in census.
And after that came what we call the English language, what we're speaking today is a derivative of 950 years of baby changing language prior to 900 years ago.
So that means that none of the relations that we're speaking about today were actually named,
that would be impossible, that there is not a there isn't any way that it could be an English language. So therefore, anything you read in English is a translation of something you have to understand.
And all these manuscripts that we have, from the Jewish texts, and we're talking now about the Old Testament, are actually accessed today are not as old as some of the texts that we have. We have a lot more stuff available, leave it or not from the New Testament than we do, though. Did you know that
there's just a whole lot more out there since 2000 years ago than there is before 2000 with the exception of dead sea scrolls. And there's a huge question mark on now.
Because there was a big effort to try to make sure everybody would accept the scrolls as being older than 2000 years ago. Because if they're newer than 2000 years ago, he had a serious problem. Because nowhere in there as they refer to Jesus and the miracles of the
ascension or of the cross or anything else. So that means they have to predate that. Otherwise, you've got a problem with
your particular denomination, which you're trying to preach.
Now you have any Bible students who have been through seminary school or
even first semester, anybody.
Everybody heard, you know, the Gospels, right? Okay, the first three are called synoptic.
Then John's Gospel stands alone. After that follows up, I think something between 12 or 16, depending on who you think wrote them. Books are attributed actually to Paul,
the majority of the New Testament really
atoma books is going to rest on.
So if Paul is not credible, and that's just a
statement of upset, then you would have you would be missing over half.
And if it is credible, then you've got a problem with a lot of the Gospels because they don't match. And then give me just one example of that. So you can think about it.
And what we have is the New Testament, you can find several online, go to gateway Bible. They've got a lot of research there that you can do in the different versions of the Bible, if you'd like to read it is
an IV nkjv, or the Revised Standard, or I think they have about six or eight more on top of that. Any of these different versions and look for yourself. You'll find them words are pretty similar. What I'm going to say right now, this is Matthew 517.
Through a proxy.
It says there that Jesus told His followers
Think not that I came to destroy the lawn of profits I cannot destroy, but rather to fulfill. And not until all things are accomplished. So show in single, jot, or a.or, a Kindle, or an iOS. Now that's going to depend on which translation you have of the law being in any wise lesson.
Whoever breaks the command, and teaches this, it will be the least in the kingdom.
But whoever keeps the commandments and teaches this to be the highest in the kingdom. And unless your righteousness exceeds that in the first,
you will not answer.
How many of you are familiar with that passage, anybody
that I get pretty close tracking
what happened, I read too many different versions of it now, and I'm not sure when it gets to
the point, it seems that the law because the law here is going to be from the word torah, Torah, as per act. And it means the Old Testament from the Old Testament was speaking about the laws that come if you're familiar with Old Testament, Leviticus, and Deuteronomy, that's where you're gonna find a lot of laws that are going to be laid out there. And of course, Exodus is going to talk to you about the interesting communion that the King's Men,
those laws are not just 10, there are actually hundreds, hundreds and hundreds and hundreds and hundreds of laws that are spelled out. So when he says that not even a single one is going to be in any way lessened, or taken away from them. This is something important, when he feels you whoever breaks even one of those and teaches that it's okay to do that, that this person is released in the next life. That's pretty serious. Especially now we'll move to my friend, Paul, and see what happens. He tells us that he had a blinding, light experience.
My experience is mentioned three times in a book called acts of the apostles.
When he chose it the first time, he's talking about having an experience that only he's privileged because other people don't hear it and don't see it.
Many deaf for advice me, Brian, that he is not deaf is blind. And he has to be taken into decision is the mosque, the mosque. The mosque is called an Arabic. And it has witches in Iraq, by the way, and it has to go there. And he has to learn from somebody
do get this whole message. But the next time it tells a story is
all of a sudden people can hear but they don't see. But in the last time he tells a story when he's talking to King of Griffith, and to Festus. In this case, he's trying to convert them and they even say even that something about you almost make us convert to your to your religion are some words to this effect? And or would you have to convert something like that? In any case, this time, though, he says that everybody heard it, everybody saw it, and even said they all fell down.
So it says the inconsistency here even in his story of his conversion, and the whole thing is very important, because it's where he gets his authority for what he's going to tell you.
Prior to that he was doing what his name was Saul, and who do you work for? He wasn't piracy.
He was exactly what diverse I mean to you, is talking about.
now I'm just kidding. Some of you may wonder where am I getting all this stuff from? them actually came from higher market is worth so you know, if you've ever read in his, he talks about the myth of the God incarnate and things like this. It's a very interesting word. But what we find is that Paul actually did break commandments and teach people that it was okay. And that's why you hear a lot of people today will say that, you know, if you said, well, it's forbidden to eat pork. It's clearly
forbidden thing to eat pork. It says it in north. So how can you be a part of those assessment and report? Well, the answer comes that well, that's the Old Testament. This is the new New Testament. And I've even heard some people say cancel soon.
If it does,
then you don't even need it in a distorted way.
But without the Old Testament, then you don't have the credentials for Jesus. So your attitude
becomes a bit of a paradox how you interview with this
Back to our main subject pure after the schema one more example.
Also the people when it came to the subject of
circumcision, which is something that Jews have to do on a boys, so maintain, so there was a ceremony, they go and they remove the for flesh from his private bar. And this is something everybody knows it used to that. But did you know that the Muslims also do the same thing.
And they have the same command.
What happened? Christians? Well, clear in Paul's writings said that circumcision is of the heart, just the heart.
But it doesn't really have a good comparison, if you want to approach it just from an outside, say an atheist will look at it when we have an atheist with somebody who only care less about LEED AP. Okay, so you can approach it from the from a standpoint of, well, I don't have an investment in any of these religions. So let me take a look at what you're stressing about. So when you talk about circumcision, it was only for boys or girls.
So it was a law for men. So if we became General, and it was only of the heart, then how would you deal with the does that mean women also have to circumcise their hearts?
or How come they didn't have to do anything about anything before that? So it becomes a little bit of a question. Why does this what is the effect? Also, when we take it to another level, when Paul says regarding all law?
Remember, we just quoted a verse that said, If you break even one commandment,
and also said that you cannot to destroy the law, but the law get Paul said, because of the law, I said, if it wasn't for the law, I wouldn't sit and therefore I'm good to the law. And the law is dead to me. Anybody ever read them?
Am I right or wrong?
I'm not trying to tell you to make this inclusion based on what I said. I'm just saying that those are statements that are there. So from my perspective, and this isn't just for me, to tell you, maybe you're wondering how could somebody be a preacher and then all of a sudden they're talking about as far
from my perspective, I wanted to know, how can I resolve some of these issues that seem to be very contradictory?
How can I, on the one hand, have a very clear statement in the very first commandment that comes with Moses?
God is one, and you have to worship him with no partners. For statement.
If you look in Deuteronomy, chapter five, there's the 10 commandments, or go to Exodus chapter 20. cents implement. first commandment is what
the Lord God has brought you out of the land of Egypt, the house is, you know, no God beside me to study, there's no other God, Thou shalt not have any other gods beside me. And in the new in the English translation, I don't know what the real name of it is. But something like the Neue English, this is a real quick, shout out, worship any other drugs, use the word worship,
which exactly describes what Islam says, because the statement that
deals with the subject of the law, and that means something to worship.
And a law means the only thing to worship
is real clear. The statement Muslims make every day said, there is no god to worship the sun.
He's the only one do this worship. So there's the first commandment,
something that comes
when he said early on in the very first five books of Moses.
And then we find in the New Testament, something too and by the way, there are many quotes as I didn't give you everything. I'm saying something you can go look up real quick. Here's another one for you New Testament. And it's in the Gospels.
Mark, which, by the way, is considered by most of the scholars to be the very oldest.
And if, if there's such a thing most based on the most reliable of the manuscripts mark.
In Mark chapter 12, verse 29, Jesus had didn't ask about what is the greatest commandment, he was being asked by one of the one of the first season when somebody comes from the
And he says to them, to know of Israel, that the Lord thy God is one God. And that you have to worship Him with all your heart and all your minds and all your soul.
Give you a second commandment like is that you have to love your brother as yourself.
Everybody familiar with that anybody ever heard something like this, I got pretty close.
Now, this statement again matches exactly the Old Testament, because it's not a new commandment that Jesus gave them about loving their brother, because that's also in the books of Moses. The same thing about loving your brother, the Jews take that, by the way to mean only somebody of Jewish blood falls in that category. That's why it's forbidden by the way for them to deal in the interest with each other,
with each other, was not forbidden for them to do any interest with non Jews.
Muslims are forbidden to have an interest period.
there isn't any kind of exclusion there that you can sneak around the corner.
Just so that you can make a comparison so that you can see and sum it up now Jesus to us as Muslims. This is the fulfillment of the Scripture. He is miracle birth, he had no father.
He was a prophet, and a messenger, which there is a distinction to us. He had a book.
He is with God He was raised up by
he's with governmental and he will come back just as he left Hawaii, at the same age that he was winning. And he will lead to true believers to victory over disbelief and over evil in this world. This is the belief of the Muslim
mentioned in the Koran, except for the last part which I mentioned about his return. This is implied by one of the statements in the Quran, but it doesn't say it in clear text where we have the third text is from the prophecies of Muhammad, peace be upon stating unequivocally that Jesus will return many of his teachings he talked about it even mentioned, where he would come back in Syria, where you would land and what was going to happen on that particular day. And some of the other events that will be taking place at that time, historical events that some have already just recently taken place. So for the Muslims, were looking for Jesus that anymore. Anyway,
some of the Christians also have an idea that that's real close. So this explains why the Muslim Student Association here felt that this was a very appropriate topic for us to bring up and share with a Christian brothers and sisters. so that you can know that we've seen in some of the same things you're feeling, sensing some of the same things that you're sensing, and we're all looking in the same direction. It's interesting, notice the Jews also are expecting their Messiah, just about the same time some similar signs, although they're gonna reject the fact that he's already been there, they still are looking for him to come and bail everybody out of the problems again.
So this gives you a little bit of background, and I think certainly opens up now the floor to some good discussion. So I hope that you had time now to fill out the paper, I see they can circulate that around. If you haven't done it already, go ahead and start filling those out. And while you do that, I'll bring this part to conclusion.
Conclusion being that,
for someone who is really searching for the message of Jesus, and then looks to this round, they can find a lot of evidence, strong evidence to confirm a lot of what's in the Bible. In fact, what I found myself after spending two years putting the Bible on one side and on the other,
I found eventually that there was no contradiction anymore in the Bible,
between the Bible and the Quran,
as long as the Bible didn't contradict itself,
I found it to be very totally compatible, and even synced with the teachings of Islam
and the Quran, except in cases where absolutely contradicted itself. And then you said, oh, there's no such thing. Now, I'll mention it and then you can straighten me out if I'm wrong. I'm going to quote to you from a holy book, without mentioning the name of it.
And some of you will right away recognize this it says in the translation, the meaning of it, it says that God doesn't have genealogy job God is not a man. And then it says in God is not the son of anybody know what I'm talking about? Anybody? God is not a man of God is not the Son of Man. Anybody know?
Hello, we don't have any Muslims here.
Low only one Muslim.
three, not married man church to mountain
what am I talking about a minute?
You think I'm talking about 30 slots, right? Let me let me lie, right? Wrong, wasn't
excluding that from the file.
That's in Numbers, chapter 23, verse 19, God is not a man, that he should lie. Another translation said that he should sin and other translations said that he should error.
God is not a man that he should sin. And then it says, and God is not the Son of Man, that he should repent.
That's a clear statement, Jesus peace be upon him, according to the Bible, that he was the son of man. So that would be a contradiction, if you're going to say he's also
So, now, there are some people, by the way, that will tell you, it doesn't matter what the book says, I already know because I've had it in my heart. Well, this is you can't argue with that kind of reasoning. Because if I already have a conclusion in my heart, I don't mean any book at all, or your cell phone.
Because I'm not going to change my mind.
But if somebody is opened up to look, in
this sense, you might want to know.
But now, this pick on the Muslims for a while, that's enough people, Christian already
with a bunch of those that are found with a Muslim, is that many of the Muslims don't really know much about their religion in the US.
It used to be some gray spots.
But today, there seems to be more of an emphasis on trying to take the religion and twist it to be what you want it to be.
And I found that even when I visited other countries and talk with bars,
that they were more interested in trying to squeeze the religion to get the result they want, rather than to see what what's, you know, the fishery plays you just look generally then look specific. But when somebody was specific first and ignore the general, then what's going to happen is you're going to give them one a twist in my rattle somebody when. And so, for instance, I'll give you a good example I mentioned about dealing an interest or revisits called nervous.
I just remembered I'm
believes Jesus had no father doesn't believe the father that Jesus was God, or no, I just wasn't clear on that point. Okay, this is a good question. In fact, in
that I said Jesus had no father.
Does that mean God is his father? Okay. Let me be real quick, who has no father.
That means he doesn't have a father.
That means there's no father.
No dad, no path. No paternal relatives.
It's not anybody's son except married, married his mother. He's called in the Quran. He says, which means Jesus is nuts. Which means the son of
would not even have a Joseph can even come look over just
how many of you ever read the Matthew? curse chapter? Anybody ever read it? first chapter. All right, you sure?
Guess? What's first words?
Fear its purpose. And I doubt that anybody's going to tell me you know what, this morning.
This is the genealogy of Jesus Christ. That's what it says.
genealogy means what?
lineage that exactly goes through what's the generation of faculty to present there were 14 generations from what I'm quoting from the internet, and therefore people are 1414 1442 43 oops.
By the way, though, don't go to Luke chapter three and read the genealogy over there.
And David says it's only talking about today. But it carries it a step further, when you read the warning loop, it gets really interesting. Because the names don't match. As soon as Joseph, the father of Joseph is totally different. And then it goes back with many comes back together for a while, and you get the same names, and then it spreads out and then comes back together. But when it gets to David, instead of Solomon,
is Nathan the Prophet. Now that's a brother to Solomon. So you're going like, wait, man, what's going on with you guys?
how could you either came from this guy, or you came from his brother? Are you? Are you your own grandpa? Are you the son of your own uncle? Or how does that work?
And then from David, the Genesis didn't do that. Genesis just starts with David, just about here. And Luke, if they go all the way back to Adam, David is the son of
Pharaoh, and then back, back back back like this. Always. A Nemesis he knows is the son of Seth. And Seth is the son Adam. And Adam is the Son of God.
That's what it says.
Did Adam have a phone?
Why didn't save?
It's a phrase in
zeichor. Like, he's this his creation of God? That makes sense.
if somebody said, we should worship Jesus, because he had no problem.
That's interesting. Let's bring that as a suddenly.
What about Eve?
didn't even have a farm?
So we say,
when you see a mother, whoa,
I think that's a bigger miracle. I don't know about you. But a man given birth, to me is bigger than a woman.
Men, with no woman involved is a bigger deal to me than a woman with
big deals, but still worship her.
thinking? And then what about Adam? He didn't have a mother or father, but I'm gonna worship him on you. Yeah.
It's very clear why you wouldn't do Why? You know?
They made since you get worship, so it makes sense, right?
So that's where Jesus comes in, as somebody that can be
perfect. didn't make any sense, right? Even if we don't have any sins that we're attributing to him. And every prophet in Islam, we know who made mistakes. We don't say they mean, since they made mistakes in my life. But we don't attribute any details.
There's not because we're concerned with the God.
It's because we consider them to still be alive.
And it would be wrong to divulge information about someone who stole them, you wouldn't.
You wouldn't want people know what you did with you.
So that didn't vote in and we don't know if he didn't sense or didn't do. But that's not gonna say what he did this, he did that. Because then he comes back.
Because man thinks in his mind means that God does cover people's sins. If they're sincere in there with vengeance. He has an expose. So that makes it very interesting. We need everything in writing, by the way, so that you can write to the can help.
No, no, I needed to in writing.
And the reasons, two reasons one, we started that
second reason is won't get picked up by the cameras in which to disrupt and move.
We did that one. Okay.
Good question. May you really give me a chance to dive into
it's an area where I really have the maybe the most time that I've spent in that area because I was writing a book called that Prophet. But then I found some other Muslims who written better books, so I stopped writing there. Yeah, they did. They did a better job than what I was really doing. I was gonna be too detailed. I had too many too much emphasis just on this word, son. That's why I put a lot of emphasis on where that word son was used and what it actually meant and different usage throughout the Bible will
make people believe that Jesus is coming anything
like that. When did you hear that? He was saying that somebody asked the question, what signs are recent events? make us believe that Jesus could be coming any day now, as I did with
the problem recently and the opponent told us the number
things to look for in the last day.
And one of them that I was just reviewing, it's the first teaching which is in the collection of
a non Muslim. And it's the second teaching in the collection of over 5000 3000 3000 police, which are mentioned in St. Barts. So this is right up front, like almost the number one thing.
And that is talking about when the angel Gabriel came to Muhammad peace be upon him. And I'll give you the instructions, read them all. And he asked him,
he said, The angel is asking Mohammed in front of the people to get the answer out, because Angel doesn't need to ask him anything. But he's asking so that people will hear this information. And ask him, when is going to be the out means when's the last day. And the corporate VC funding, he said, the one being asked, doesn't know any more than the one asked? I don't know if you don't know. But the signs are nice. And he mentioned two of the signs that you're teaching, there are many others are mentioned these two. One is that the slave will give birth to her own master. And the other one is that when you see the barefoot, destitute,
goat herders of the desert, even the Arabs
competing with each other to build magnificent edifices in the desert,
come back with one go back to the lady given birth to her own master. And we're not allowed as Muslims to say that this actually means this or that means that we can say you could look at and think for yourself what it means. Because we're not supposed to try to predict in the rain is going to be your March snow or anything else. These are things known to God and you say God knows what could be this.
But have you noticed, and I have because of my age, I'm 61 years old this month.
And I have good memories of what, what it was like when I was a child. It was great. This was a great, wonderful country, you have no idea what it was like, we used to leave our keys in the car. So
that we didn't worry about parking fines, we didn't have that people can move their car if they need to go anymore. And if they want to clean the street, like today in New York, they'll tow your car, nosy they can just move your car to the side and do whatever they need to do. And nobody would steal your car that would be unthinkable to steal somebody and leave your house open. Because while you're away, maybe somebody need to go inside, maybe it would rain or something. My mother used to make up food and put it on the back when to sell and people could come by and take it because they were poor people didn't have any food that
they could knock on the door and they were hungry. And it was common, it was very, very common that you would give food or an anybody who wants to ride, they could just stick up their thumb, you start giving them something. And even in designing your way, you would just do that that was common. That was the decent thing to do. People were very religious.
And I mean that not from the sense that they ran around their Bible trying to convert people. But they actually acted like what the teaching of religion is about.
People were kind of courteous, and we were taught real early. If you can't say something nice, don't say anything at all.
And this is the teaching of
mine kind of knew without what will happen. You have to hire
the one leaves in the lawn. They either say foot or shut off. This test transmission
was a great, wonderful place.
It was very strange if anybody cheated somebody there were cheaters out there. But they were strange. And we talk about them and I do Wow. That's a bad person. And somebody went to jail. It was like the end of the world. You just forget it. Somebody had a criminal record.
And if a girl had an affair with a boy, that was it, don't forget that. She's She's history.
And people say the Bible says what do you do? That's one of the commandments. You can't do that. You go to hell.
Today, my girlfriend's do it.
And even today, you know how many boyfriends and girlfriends do
in San Francisco and you're
just, I mean, you know, you see what's on TV, right? No one I don't want to come to the point about display given versus master.
No child that I knew. And I knew some kids, you know, pretty mouthy to each other. I never saw a child out of wedlock. Never
Even as I grew older, and I saw a child speak back to a teacher, one time the whole room went.
And we were waiting for a lightning strike to place because the child's First Baptist teacher
wasn't long before lightning struck his parents, because
they used to do that in class, you know, they had the teachers had a paddle. And it was different sizes, depending on the teacher, what, how big they are just vaguely over the desk and walk away. And
then all of a sudden, they said, You can't do this kids anymore. But the Bible says, spare the rod, and spoil the
Whenever there's no corporal punishment, when there is no enforcement behind what you said, What do you want to do? talk to kids.
And when people try to do that,
well, you shouldn't do that. Do that. Oh, you don't really want to do that, do you? Please don't break that old arm.
But there's an extreme to the other one. You know, and I guess the problem is that people don't realize how Islam provides something nice.
In concept is to
talk about rights. Everybody today talks about rights.
They forget about the other side of it, because Islam gives you full rights and limitations. Because there's,
if I give you the right to do whatever you want to do, I'm gonna have to draw a line somewhere, right? Because I have to give him the same right? How can you have all that you want to do? But when he tries to service it? Well, I just want to go like this.
you get one is that right? So it's fair. But people forget to mention that side of it. So what happens when you take these
limits away, and allow people to go beyond what they're supposed to do? Then you get an imbalance in your society.
And today, I'm not coming back today to answer my 20 years ago, actually, I saw it with my own eyes. A woman who had two boys, no husband, and she's trying to provide for them.
She's working her job full time. She came home, and she had a box of tissues, because the first school and the 12 year old boy opens up the tennis shoes, and starts cursing at his loving 10 or something like you got me Nikes I told you Adidas, or the vice versa, you wanted the 90s I can't remember. But I was shocked at the way he treated his mother and his daughter to footer, self, back in her car, go back to the place and trade out with a new kind of shoe. And don't ever do it again. Because she got them on sale. She was trying to save some money. And he was just basically telling her I'm gonna go to school like that.
She didn't, she had the car with that, that doesn't use environment.
What do you call that?
That sounds like a slave, giving birth to their own master. I don't know.
Islam teaches that if children do this to their parents, then all of their worship became canceled.
You can fast until you drop dead. When you can stand and pray for you fall over, but allow he's not going to accept any of it.
Because the first and foremost thing after your correct belief is going to be your relationship with Him.
And go back and see if they didn't want to sit in the balance. And the second commandment, to love your brother
is fine. He says this that you have to prefer for your brother what you want for yourself. And when it says brother here it's not talking about a male is talking about other human beings.
And the first human being and is found is your mother.
was a prophet peace be upon him was asked after my duty to Almighty God and the commandments that come from the prophet
who is first to have rights on me. He said your model. He said and then who? He said your mother he said he said your mother and then your father. This is a very famous idea, especially amongst women.
Am I right or wrong? And the Muslims know that one. There
is a joke.
It is that witnesses are supposed to act we supposed to give this high respect to them.
And when our parents become old as Muslims, we have to get them. We can't put them in an old folk song.
We can do that. That is not acceptable.
Even if they did come told me in from my own father, that Alzheimer's disease to the extent that he couldn't do anything for himself, and he had almost no mind at all,
and the people that would come to the house to, you know, send somebody out every so many days, and they don't charge us for that. We appreciate it. We liked it, because they come out and tell us things that scare points.
you can't help it. And he's taken up all your time is taken up your resources, and you know, the state will pay for it, just let go the civil time.
doesn't even know. We sit around knows.
And somebody here is within 24, seven DeVos, he cares about going to make sure that he breathes that he turned over, he goes to the bathroom and he is clean.
And when he died, he died. Right there was my daughter right there beside and she heard his last breath.
So there's no way that we have to have a second thought about if I would have been there this or if I would have done so and so or no. This is how it should be.
So when you see the children treating their parents, like like this is the slave for me and the parent what to do is ruin that. Now the second part of it. I just got back from Saudi Arabia, by the way last week.
You can't believe the number of buildings
and the beauty
of some of these beautiful buildings, the architecture is out of this world. And the heights of these buildings would would scare you
in a desert. I'm from Texas where land used to be pretty cheap. Okay. So we have what we call ranch style houses you build out you never build up. Why? Because it costs more money to build up. The only time you go up is when Real Estate's expensive, right.
deserts means land is cheap, right.
So why are these guys building 30 storey buildings 40 storey buildings 60 storey building 100 storey building a
couple years ago when I was older, I had this vision huge building going up regret across from another use because I said why are you doing it?
What's the office building?
right across the street. It's empty. Nobody even wants to use it. Why are you doing he said to be taller.
And they call it after their family like this meant that my dad and I wanted to be higher than he is named after his death.
But that's not all.
It says about them being magnificent.
I visited one house and they told us you know when you get routed to Craig, we always wash up and they have a little room right off the main areas so that you can go into and wash up to do that. We went in there
and there had a you know, an island kitchen. Right? Well, this has that island sinks that are around in a circle Island. And it was beautiful. It was so ornate. He didn't want to turn around and mess it up. was so good. What had flowers and stuff coming out there and this real ornate thing. And I looked at us It doesn't look like brass. Sounds like gold is
Now I use the restroom there but I heard one of the others commandment says the toilet was made out of gold.
I don't need to say anything that the jokes already. They're
like jokes. They're alone. This is that. I mean to me, that's a sign. That's a sign of some horrible weight. Tremendous weight to consider that, something like that. And that's exactly what's predicted 1400 years ago, and keep in mind up until 60 years ago, most people were barefoot goat herders.
I'm not exaggerating. We have a brother with us from Egypt. He will tell you that when he was a little boy, you can remember his grandfather talking about he used to send all their charity over to Saudi Arabia, because if they didn't, they would starve to death. My right or wrong. How many years did Egypt support Saudi Arabia?
1000 years something like that.
At the time of
the colony, yeah, the kids were for the Kaaba was always provided by Egypt. They they couldn't even use it as a black cover over the carpet in the desert right? There's a black cover over
That was provided, they couldn't even come up with enough money to buy a car before they came from Egypt.
And now they have a gold door for it by the way.
So how could somebody have predicted by accident that there would be such wealth? occupants there that people could do things? So this is one of the areas of design. Some of the other ones, I'll go quickly through these, he told us that when the science come, it will be like when you break a string of pearls, how quickly they run off. Have you ever broken any beads, try to stop the things from running off, you've kept they're just going to be gone that way. And one of the things he told us that in the last days, you would see that
evil would be prevalent everywhere.
So evil and especially for Russia, which is
adultery, illegal sex would be so common to everybody involved in this column. And
there's nothing to turn on Jerry Springer. You feel like an idiot if you don't do something weird.
It's so common that somebody says they're a virgin, they would look at my
call Ripley's Believe it or not.
So if you understood what I just said, this was predicted at a time when that's not something considered acceptable.
No, it was predicted and it's happened. Another. I'm going to, I'm going to tell you this website, so you can just go there and get a lot of it just hit you with these two that struck me. This is part of a very big
these are teachings that he had. So just pull this part of it out. He said in the last days of people's extremely Thorn on women.
Yeah, we would we come here trying to communicate, communicating with the animals of the sea.
Anybody seen what we're trying to do with dolphins and whales right now?
Nobody would have guessed that even 50 years ago, but their brilliance and we are communicating without panels.
And by the way, they're animals. Those are not fish.
