Channel: Yusuf Estes
Yusuf Estes at Dubai International Peace Convention, the heart touching moments of reverts taking Shahadah and crying.
So I come
martial law martial law Mashallah.
How many of you were here last night?
And you came back anyway martial law.
In Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Allah Allah Ameen who Allah de Jelena muslimeen was salat wa salam ala rasulillah, Karim. Allah Allah He was a big man in a shared way the Illa Allah Allahu wa Taala shriek Allah wa eyeshadow Mohammed bin Abdullah who oversaw Salalah, it was sallam.
It's a grand opportunity hamdulillah and a privilege and an honor for me
to be here with you on this occasion to speak about our beloved Russell's Salallahu alaihe salam.
And these days when we find so many people, confused, misled, misguided about exactly who Mohammed is. It's only appropriate
then on occasions such as these, that we, the Muslims, stand up and explain in simple, concise terms. Exactly. Who is Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Allah subhanho wa Taala
blessed me to be guided into Islam,
by a person named Mohammed, of the rock man from Egypt.
Just the name itself caught my attention. When I met this man, my friend from Egypt,
his name is Mohammed.
That's the Muslims. Oh, and you know what they do.
But the more I began to learn about the person that I knew named Mohammed, and the more he spoke about the one he was named for, Russell, Mustapha, Mohammed.
The more I began to really believe that such a person lived, breathed
and preached a message, a beautiful message of the unity of God, and the salvation of mankind.
I never thought that I would be a Muslim.
In fact, I was trying to convert a Muslim to become a Christian.
That was my idea.
After I entered into Islam, the hamdulillah
there was something that was told.
One of the Muslim Brothers told me that if you don't love Mohammed,
more than anybody else, you can't be a Muslim.
I said what?
He said, You have to love Mohammed Salah while with Salaam more than anybody, even your mother, even your father, even yourself.
I said, Really? I said, Yes.
He said, Do you love him more than anybody else? I said, I really I don't I can't say that. Because I don't know much about him.
So, right then and there, I decided I need to learn about Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
Because in my former Christian religion,
I loved Jesus. And I saw them very much.
But I didn't really know anything about him. Not really. Oh, I you know, I've heard people say things, I know, quotes that people attached to him, but to really, to really know
with testable evidence.
There really isn't anything for Jesus until
you come to this book. The Koran is the only the last and the only revelation of a law that still exists on the planet today, in the original form,
original language and no changes. We know that we talked about that before.
for us as Muslims
it's a lot more than just the book.
It represents a lot of speech. And it represents what Mohammed slash Salaam brought because he's the one who said it.
So I began to read.
But all I could find was three books. One written by somebody not Muslim, a nice book, but it's written by somebody, not even a Muslim.
that was written by somebody who had a hard time, I think, translating to English.
And the third one is basically I think, written by somebody that hates this loud.
That was almost 20 years ago.
Now today, I visited the bazaar.
And I went through the bookshops that are here, I found so many excellent books about our Prophet sallallahu wasallam. I'm very happy to tell you that there are excellent works right here that you can take home with you. And I hope you do.
But at that time, we didn't have it. So I had to go to some of the scholars. The same problem comes again about language. 20 years ago, in the United States, we really didn't have a lot of scholars who could speak good English, or understood how to explain to us.
Today, one of our best scholars on our new TV website, for guidance TV,
is located in Abu Dhabi.
His English is better than money.
So it was a lot harder than than it is now.
But it's still the same message. Prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. The more you know about him,
the more you realize how you want to be like him.
kind, gentle, quiet, contemplative, sincere, honest, truthful, keeps the trust brings the families together, so many wonderful things that we know about him as a human being.
So a few years ago,
and you remember the incident
in one country, some people published cartoons,
very stupid cartoons.
Trying to insult our Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
We went there, my wife and I, my daughters,
and about 100 other people connected with the Islam channel in the UK.
We put on an eight hour program, starting in the morning going through the day, we brought speakers like Dr. Jamal by the way the sister Yvonne Ridley, if you remember her great works that she did to help people don't know more about the women in Islam
and a number of other speakers.
And I saw the best effort from the Muslims really it was beautiful effort.
Because no matter what they said, the Muslims were gentle, kind, truthful, like the way we're supposed to be.
And when I was outside in the lobby playing with the children that happens to be one of the things I love to do
the photograph or is the people that photo journalists, they call them
what's taking my picture.
For hours, just kept taking my picture taking my period also why they take my picture, and I'm playing with the kids are like this, you know?
Now, we answered all their questions afterwards. We had question answer. We answered the questions.
When we were done.
We fed them. We had a very lovely meal for them. These are photo journalists, journalists, reporters, you know, media people, politicians, trying to let them understand why we feel so strong about our beloved Nabi sallallahu wasallam.
The next morning, as we were writing in the
Little bus out to the airport.
I pick up the newspaper.
They have an English newspaper there in that country, open it up.
And whose picture is on the front page?
And what did I look like? Out of all that?
is like this.
This is a picture they got
Muslim radicals come to Denmark to preach hatred and spread Islam.
Open the page,
a big article, also
oppression of Islam on women.
all the women
at this event, the Muslim woman,
half of them only was wearing hijab, only half the other Muslim women were not wearing Hijab
and no Muslim women were wearing the black with the niqab. None.
Illa de la, except for three
Who? My wife and my two daughters, the only ones, niqab and as well.
So whose picture did they put?
And what do you think it says?
oppressed Arab women?
My wife? She said, We're from Texas.
What is it mean?
Boys and girls? What does it mean?
It means for some people, no matter what you do, no matter what you say, no matter how you bring the message. La you noon.
They won't believe.
But it's their newspaper.
True or false? They paid for the newspaper.
It's their country, true or false?
And they are the ones who are spending their money.
True or false?
Is it the obligation of the enemies of Islam to present the truth about Muhammad? sallallahu wasallam?
Is it the job
of a non Muslim?
To tell the truth about Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam.
it's our job,
yes or no.
So this is where we dedicated a portion of our peace program for this conference to deal with the subject of the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. Who He is was what he said what he did, and his overall role
as the mercy to mankind. In fact, the next talk coming up right after my talk will be say it Reggie,
from Canada and he will be talking about the merci to the alameen
we wanted you to be aware of the importance
of this subject because it's not a topic just to read. This is not just a subject to stimulate your intellectual side. This is a part and a parcel of our Deen
what is the first and foremost thing above all things that any Muslim must do to be a Muslim?
Shia had attained yes or no.
She had attained yes or no.
I just want to be sure you're awake.
A shadow unless ilaha illallah wa, Shadow Ana Mohammed
So if we don't have this part of it, you can't say this is a full Muslim. There are Christians who have the first part, but they're still not Muslim. Because they don't believe and they're not ready to follow Mohammed Salah Salaam, they're close. Some of them, I met them very close.
But until they're ready to really
follow our profit, the number so
this is how critical it is
to get this message out to the people.
This is our job you and me.
Now, how many of you English is your first language? Anybody has first language English?
Second Language English.
Third language is English.
Yeah, I'm third language English. I actually I speak Texas.
I have to translate so you can understand me?
No problem, although purchase.
It came in my mind after that event in Denmark,
that I had to really make a change around the world fast. Now, what's the faster way
than the internet? So we put up a website, Mohammed, A to Z.
Mohammed a to z.com.
We started putting some articles on there.
And then somebody contacted me and said, Do you know that there's a website called prophet of islam.com? It's for sale.
It's not Muslims. I said, What? Some people in Arizona, United States, they own something called prophet of Islam, and they want to sell it for money. They just want the money. They don't care who gets it.
They're going to sell it to the highest bidder.
I said, Oh, no.
Now the name alone at that time. At that time, with all the focus in the news about the prophet of Islam.
and the websites that value the name a domain name. With estimated between one, two or $3 million.
How can I do that? I have trouble paying for the websites. I have it $10 a piece every year.
I have about 3000 of them now.
I said let me try it. I picked up the telephone.
I listened to him and Arizona. I can recognize that accent. I said How are y'all doing?
So you're hurt. Joe got a website out there for sale.
Some websites? Can you send me a list?
They sent the list. I went through the list of course. And that callback. All right. This one this one this one this one and prophet of Islam was that
Well, we're talking
I don't really I don't know. Why would anybody want that for they said oh you know good good education, you know stuff to attack Islam or something like that. It's
a waste my time.
Tell you what to do give me 500 bucks cash money.
They said what
I said Cashman said let me talk to my boss. I said you work on commission don't Yeah. He said, Yeah, I get money every time we sell some as I go talk to your boss, otherwise you don't get nothing today.
Within three days, I got the price down to $1,352. And no sense.
And they took the money and I got the site handle a lot of delamain.
Why? $1,352 because that's all the money I had in the world. That's why
but that website is number one now in Google if you type in profit, Islam
number one profit
Islam, our slides number one, and through my other websites come up right after that, because I have linked.
Some of you, you don't know what I'm talking about with websites, don't worry about it, there'll be some other speeches come up, you'll like them better. Anyway, I'm just telling the ones who know about the internet, how important this is that we promote the sites that deal with the hukilau law.
We ran into another problem though. Some people are putting up websites talking about Mohammed Sai Salaam,
quoting Hadith, but they say it the wrong way. And they give the wrong translation of certain words, and they're calling to something crazy.
telling you that you have to hate everybody except Muslims. You have to kill Jews and Christians. It really it plays right into the hands of those who want to attack Islam even more.
So again, we started talking with some of the groups that work with us, for instance, Islam online.net. Some of you know that that's for use of car debris. Also with Islam channel in UK, who the TV and peace TV, in India, all of us working together, how can we make this better? So then we started making TV shows
about the prophet SAW Salaam
and Dr. yasir Qadhi and some of the others. You see them here today, say Reggie, and so many more, have done an excellent job in English to get the message out.
What's important for you and I to know is this is not a one man show.
This is not just okay, they did it. I don't have to do any work. You who are listening to me today,
now have a responsibility.
Because you've heard it, you don't have the excuse before you walked in the door. You had excuse I didn't know.
But now you know, it's on you and me. It's on our head. When we go out the door, we're not the same person that came in this door. And we have to work steadily, to get this message of our beloved Prophet sallallahu wasallam up where it belongs.
Because as the brother told me in the beginning, if you don't love the Prophet salallahu salam, more than anybody else, including yourself.
You're not there yet.
You're not there yet. And when the media, the news, and the politicians and the preachers of other religions and preachers of hate, are saying what they're saying about our beloved will be talking against his family, talking against his companions, talking against Islam itself talking against this
talking against the law, and you said and you do nothing.
So what will this dunya
benefit you? What will this dunya benefit you if you don't do this
for a loan is messenger.
So basically my talk is to stimulate
and wake us up.
And listen closely to what we're going to learn today about our Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam.
Never on this planet
walked such a person as Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. We love all the profits very much, we put them up very high. In fact, we put all the profits way above us, no doubt. But we never put them in the area of being a god or a son of a god.
But even of all of the profits,
Mohammed Salah Salaam is the Hartman and he's the last and final of all of the messengers of Allah.
But I just want to share a little something with you a little something before I end the talk.
Last year, I was sitting with one of our scholars.
And he said something that really answered a question I had for 19 years. I wondered about this, you know the story, when the why he came to Russell's sallallahu wasallam. You know the story. He's fasting. Java Nur in them cave called Hera right.
And while he's there who came in the cave with him who
Remember you don't have a microphone I do who came in the cave?
jabril Ali Salaam. Right.
And what happened? What did you really do now? What did he say? What did he do?
He grabbed him. He squeezed him. Why?
And he said
the person said I'm not a recycler. Hey grab him again.
Why is grabbing him each time? Grab him again? Why
not tafsir chef is telling us because jabril la Salaam has been hearing about Mohammed Salah law since the beginning. Since the beginning he knows somebody's coming name Who? Mohammed sighs Salaam
Alaikum. And because he heard because all prophets when they came, they mentioned that Mohammed Sai Salaam is coming.
So jabril is excited. That's why he was holding him out of excitement. Like you see somebody you haven't seen your brother in a long time. You're excited. Oh my god. You see your shave. He didn't seem a long time you want to hug him You know?
So he was very excited. And he was hugging Nabi sallallahu, wasallam
this how they have made it and I said, now it makes sense. This makes sense.
Because somebody told me
I By the way, I never saw a prophet Muhammad SAW Islam in a dream I never did. But I know people who said they did.
And one person I know them, they converted to Islam, by the way, we give them Shahada.
And after they made Shahada, one day, they were talking to us and they said I had a dream last night. Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam was in the dream. We said okay.
Said and use this this was in the dream tour said what? I'm not a prophet. Was this said no. You came up to Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and you said, it's Mohammed Salaam, and you grabbed him.
Like, what? The story? He said, You grabbed him and you're hugging him and hugging him.
I said, Really? He said, Yeah, was just a dream.
I said, By the way, what did prophets Salaam do? What did he say? He said nothing. He just smiled and looked at you. Oh,
That sounds like it could happen.
We're told in the Quran to say the salams on our prophets Allah why no, Salam.
We're told in the head de by the prophets of Salaam to make this Salaam on him a lot on one day of the week more than any other day. What day would that be?
Now one more time.
Friday, there's no such thing as Friday and the Muslim calendar What day?
Juma? Okay. And what's today?
Today's Duma. So we should be saying some of Lahore alayhi wa sallam, we should be asking Allah whom Allah O Allah gives the peace and the blessings and Muhammad sallallahu alayhi salam, like the Peace and blessings for Abraham and his family. And we should say this again and again and again throughout the day. So as much as you can try to remember that that's a very good thing because who is saying this for Mohammed sauce, salaam inshallah, he will be there on the Day of Judgment, asking a law on our behalf.
It was when I started studying the Hadith of the Prophet SAW Salaam
that I really fell in love with him so much, then I could understand why some Muslims at his time would rather take an arrow in their own body than to have one hair be pulled out of his head.
Is that true or false? But as you read, you can see why.
Because he brought a message, the message from a law, the message that is the salvation The only real salvation for the human being, and this above all things
and how about the one who brought it, Mohammed sighs
from the time he was born, to the time he died, all of this is categorized carefully indexed, and verified. I can check it out in any country in the world Muslim country.
non Muslim country, I can get the information about Mohammed. It's important because the more we know and the truth about him, the more we become convinced of the message he came with, and what was the message
ilaha illAllah Muhammad Rasulullah Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah Allah, Allah Allah mean, who Allah the jamna muslimeen.
So that's it for this speech. I didn't want to do more than just set up the stage really for our speakers who will be talking in depth on each of the topics. What I would like to do now is have a chance for the q&a. So I'm gonna ask our brother to come back out here.
Wake him up, send him back up. There he comes. Okay.
Back to you, sir. Kamala Harris, Sarah Monica.
When I'm in action,
you know, by now the rules of the question answer session that Shay for us investors would prefer. So in this case, let's first have the question from the other side.
I'll be live in action.
salaam aleikum, WA, ala,
please, my name is Gabriel, okay. I'm increasing
your occupation as well, please. I'm a business person.
Okay, I was invited to this base convention by a friend. And I came here because it was called a peace convention was high. Upon this catalog, I took a booklet that said something about Yousuf
It was written that raised as a strong Christian educated in tax x, you would say, it became very successful owning music tours, television shows, and was the music minister and preacher of the Bible.
So I want to ask you, sir,
as a preacher of the Bible, what was the
What was the reason or the point or the truth that you found in Islam that led to your conversion, as a strong Christian and preacher of the Bible? As a beautiful question?
Because there's lights in my eyes that don't know exactly where you are? Can you hold up your hand?
There you are. I'm sorry. Now I see. Your name is Gabriel, in Arabic is jabril. That's the angel I was talking about.
So we were very happy to have you with us today. It's a pleasure to have you with us. And it's a pleasure for you to ask such a question in such a nice way.
I'm privileged to ask you that question.
I wish I was there, I can give you a big hug. Thank you, sir.
Because when I was a Christian, see, I wasn't nice. Like you. You're nice. I was tough. You know, because I thought I had to save the world, I'm gonna go out and preach a message. And you know, I'm still a little wacko, don't get me wrong, but that not near as bad as I was.
What I found, and this is important to know, what I found was in my Bible first, what I found was in my Bible first, because I used to travel with a lot of the so called preachers of Christianity. And some of the ones that I traveled with. They don't represent real Christianity, by the way, but I traveled with them. And I learned that I couldn't trust them. Especially when they would pick up the Bible and say, the Bible says the Bible says, And afterwards, I would say it didn't say that. They say, who cares as long as the people think so.
And so it bothered me so much that I started trying to really read and understand many different translations of the Bible.
But they didn't match. So I said, obviously, you know, translation is not the real thing. I need to learn Kony Greek.
I knew that the Latin I had already studied Latin, and I knew that the vulgate was only a translation of Conan a Greek anyway. So when I went to the cone, a Greek, it was hard. That was really hard, because those characters they're confusing, you know, I don't know if you know, Greek, but it's weird. Greek to me, anyway.
Then I come to know that Oh, by the way, actually, Jesus language was a form of Hebrew called Aramaic, a form of Semitic language called Aramaic.
And I had no clue what that was. So I tried to learn Hebrew. Now all along the way I'm taking okay interlinear Bible. I don't know if you know what that is. That's when you
Have the word in English and under, it'll have the word encoding in Greek. And you can look it up.
Now people like Ahmed deedat Rahim Allah and Dr. Sacra night, they have these giant computer brains, okay, I don't have that giant computer brains, they can process all this stuff in their head.
And I traveled with zacher many times. And I have to tell you, he can really do that anytime. But this is not my subject. When I was studying it, I came to realize that there was a book called Strong's Concordance of the Bible.
My father had a copy. So I would sit there, it's big, it's very big book. And I would go through and look for these words.
And then it will tell you in Kuhn, a Greek, what's the root, where it comes from, and what it's related to, and where it's in the Bible. And then all of a sudden, I started discovering something really big.
There's a whole lot of interpolation. Because if you look over here, though, same exact word means one thing, but over here, it means something else.
And then statements that people say about the Bible are not true.
If I quote to you from what we have in the Quran, I can quote it to you in the Arabic language. But how many people do you know that can quote the Bible in the original Aramaic of the New Testament or ancient Hebrew, the Old Testament? Not very many people, right?
But I want you to look, while you're standing right there, get wrong. look around this room right here. Now, I don't know most of these people, some of them know me from TV or something like that, but they don't really know me.
if I open this book, on any page, and I start quoting out of this thing, believe it or not, they will know if I'm making mistakes. There'll be somebody in this room that can tell you not to mistake you said it wrong. But I'm just gonna go to the first page.
There we go. This is the first page
hold it so the cameras can get a shot.
Hi, guys. All right.
What what's the first letter? first letter and the first page anybody know?
Everybody knows it's ba.
So what's the word?
Bismillah. This Arabic and give me a give me mine. This is the English program we're doing. I'm speaking some form of English right now. Right? Yeah. Okay. Bismillahi Rahmani Raheem. Next words.
Are rock man Rahim.
Ear, Buddha ear canister in
Serato ladina. And I'm talay him.
Me. You don't have to say I mean, except in the slot. But you know, anyway.
Now you could say Gabriel all Well, I mean, you know, that could be a rehearsal thing that people do every day. And guess what you'd be right? We do say that. We'd say it every day five times a day we pray but there are a total of 17 times we say it so you could say and they just know that but by the way, how about if I mispronounce something would they catch it?
viral Mark doobie Allah whom Allah Dornan whoops
whoo Yeah, la him. Oh,
actually, it's both because there is another pronunciation but the common one now, I want to go to the other side though. I'm gonna go to the back. I'll go to the back.
That was the front this is the back.
I was blaming shutdown regime Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim
call hola la
was lamb. Well, then
that's in the Bible.
How about the middle? It's not actually dead middle. Okay, but it's close to the middle
chapter three verse 19, by the way,
contin hierro Metin.
That's chapter three, verse 110.
Now, what I'm showing you is
that we know this in Arabic.
Every Muslim on the earth, knows this book in the Arabic line, that's 1.6 billion, know that it's an Arabic. And we have some of it memorized. And all of us know it's only in Arabic. No, wait. This is where it gets good. How many in this room, you know somebody who memorized the whole entire Quran, cover to cover, raise your hand in Arabic, you met somebody, you know somebody, somebody in your family, raise your hand.
I did this in a university in the United States. I said, Now, for the Christians. Raise your hand if you ever met anybody in your life, who memorized the whole Bible in Hebrew and Conan a Greek and they just went what is that the language?
My point is not to put down the Bible. My point is to put down the people who lie about it.
Because the more I studied the Hebrew and the Greek, the more I began to realize
that what I was learning from the Quran in English, I was written English use of Allah, you remember?
It was the same thing.
Especially the one I read to you just now and they helped me with lemmya earlier.
When I'm Eli,
listen to this. I'm going to give you a translation of Scripture.
God is not a man.
And God is not the Son of Man.
Is this in the Quran?
Is it in the Quran? Yes.
But I didn't quote it from the Quran.
I coded it from the Bible.
That's in the book of Numbers, chapter 23, verse 19, God is not a man that he should sin and God is not the Son of Man that he'll repent.
And when I read that, I said, No, wait a minute. If it says here that God is not a son of man, and how is it in the New Testament? It's saying Jesus, his son, a man, how can you be a god? I took it to one of my preacher friends and I said, hey, look at this. What do you say about this? You know what he said?
He said, that's a big s Son of Man, the other one's a little s Son of man.
Now, I think I think you already know, as most of the audience knows, there's no such thing as upper and lowercase letters. in Aramaic, Hebrew or Arabic,
means a light again. And then another subject, another subject, saying Islam spread by the sword. Islam spread by the sword. I heard so many preachers telling me Get away from these Muslims Islam spread by the sword.
604 pages 114 chapter 6666 verses, depending on how you count them up, guess what?
And many words in Arabic for sword safe Mohammed. Who sound the I think 16 words for sword. Guess how many times I found the any of those words in Arabic, zero.
In the Bible.
Just the word soared
over 200 times.
Oops. Wait, you asked me, I'm just telling you.
So when I take my Bible to the preacher, and I said, Excuse me, it says here that Jesus said,
I did not come with peace. I came with a sword.
And it's time to sell your coat and buy a sword. What did that mean?
You know what he said? Listen to this. You never believe how people can lie. He said Don't you know this was done in Italy where they transcribe this stuff. The Latin You know, it was in Italy. Rome is in Italy. Don't you know that? I said, Yeah. He said and they would work by candlelight at night and it was hard to see. Yeah. And while they were trying to translate, you know, put this down in the Latin language. You know what happened? They were eating spaghetti medallions. They liked
Spaghetti and spaghetti fell down. And it was made a s it was word it wasn't sword it was word.
He said I came with a word.
You know what's wrong with that?
The word for word.
encode a Greek is logos.
Now, how did they turn logos? In disord? By dropping spaghetti on it?
And here Excuse me, but what does it mean? Sell your coat and buy a word?
What is it a game show on TV? I'd like to buy that word right there for $100. Please, what is this?
And the more I talked to them, the more I could see lie after lie after lie. And finally I said, You know what, I don't need to be in a religion full of liars.
But it didn't convince me about Islam yet. Where I got convinced that Islam is over a separate subject. And then the Quran in the Bible backed it up.
Right there, buddy in the heart, because nobody can play with your heart. That's yours. You own it, it's yours. You can do whatever you want with it. It is yours. Right? Yes, that's the one thing nobody can imprison, they can lock me in a prison put me in a box, throw me in the ocean, but they can't control this. That's mine. That's yours, you own it. So if you get inside of that heart, like I did, and clean it out and throw all the trash in the garbage out of there, throw the lies out of there the misconceptions or prejudice, and just give it all up and say you know what, I belong to God, I just belong to God, God, guide me.
And that's what I did. And when I did that, I had this strange impression I need to put my head on the ground. And so I did that.
When my head on the ground
I said these words Gabriel.
if you're there,
And when I got up, I realized something.
I'm the one with the problem.
The world's not the problem. I was the problem. And from that day, to this day, 19 years, I'm saying the same thing every day 17 times a day. It demons are often Mr. Kane Guide us to the straight path at Dena Sorrell Serato Mr. Keeney guidance, the straight path.
And I'm going to tell you something. I'm not psychic, and we don't believe in psychics and magic and all that stuff. We don't. But I'm gonna tell you something else. And now your new brothers and sisters are going to see something strange. Because Gabriel and I've never met that we're not setting this up. What he doesn't even know what I'm going to say.
But Gabriel, you've been praying in your heart, asking God to guide you or you wouldn't be standing there right now. Is that true or false? God is true. There you go. There's your verification. He said, That's true.
And I know it because I've been through this again and again and again. 1000s of people are watch come to Islam again. And again, just like Gabriel, they're looking for truth. They're not looking for Islam. They're not looking for the Quran. They're just looking for truth, real truth. And because there's only one God, and only one way to get to God, it has to be on his terms. And there's only one way and we set it in Edina in the law hate Islam.
The only thing a law wants from you is this simple thing. Your heart
is what he wants. Give him your heart.
And everything else will be fine. And how you do that? I'm going to give you five words in English language, they have to be all at the same time. Surrender, submission, obedience, sincerity, and peace. Do you want those things in your life? Yes, I do too. Everybody in this room wants those things. all at the same time though. Surrender,
submission, obedience to His commandments. You know, the 10 commandments. We got the same thing.
Same thing it's not a new religion, and then sincerity, to be sincere, no lies, no showing off. No real for a law only and finally to be in peace with whatever he gives you say Okay, thank you. Even if you like it, thank you. If you don't like it, thank you anyway, because it's from him. Be in peace with it. This word in Arabic
This one takes five words in English you know what the word is in Arabic. You know, Islam
is really that's the word.
First thing I just asking privately, I just want to ask again, just confirm that you believe that God is really only one God. I do believe there is only one. So now say after me I swear. I swore there is no god to worship except a law. There was no God to worship except Allah and I swear, and I swore that Muhammad is His Prophet, but more medicines is perfect.
Now this next part is Arabic. It means the same thing. But when you say it, you're going to be saying the language that God sent it down in the same language similar to Jesus and Abraham and ready. I'll help you.

My new brother and I were just crying holding each other. And I was reliving the experience of 19 years ago. And I needed somebody to hold me down
and cry with me because what's happening? The reason we cry, you don't know this we do. Because we feel this Rama of Allah, the mercy of Allah coming over us, which is washing away the sins since the day we were born. It's the message Jesus preached. It's the message john the baptist preached. It's the message that Mohammed Salah Salaam preached, that if you accept God, as the one and only Savior, all your sins are forgiven in your newborn just like you came out of your mother.

1250 people took Sharia all at the same time. Hello.

and since the time of our resource allies alone, it has never been by us it's been by Allah. Allah is the one who guides not me.
Not you not even Mohamed Salah Salaam because because the prophets lie Salaam watch his uncle or be tailored
to accept Islam
and he didn't.
And what did the law say? He's talking to Russell's I somebody is talking to us to
verily do not guide the one you love.
Rather it is a law who guides to his straight path. Today you and I have witnessed three people enter into this guidance the guidance of a law while we were talking about His Habib, the result of the loss of the law and
what a beautiful gift that allow let us be a part of to see it.
Because whoever is in such a jamaa as this
inshallah is also receiving the rough ma the mug for of Allah as well.
So this is more important for us than anything else because this is the salvation
is there time for any more questions? He's think time out either there He wants me to play a soccer game with him. I'm not sure
Do you know something? I wish right now I could hug all of you. Really? Well. I'm hugging you get ready.

Bernadette, say after me these words, I swear. I swear. There's no God to worship. There is no god to worship except the law. except Allah.
And I swear
Muhammad is His Messenger.
Now, you don't have to say the LA white bar. That's me saying that. Okay. Now the Arabic ash hairdo
illa Illa LA,
WA shadow. Why should Ana Mohammed
Now Gabriel, you're going to be real happy when I tell you this prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, he told us whoever calls to a good deed will get the reward of the people who do the good deed, because you stood up and made your Shahada to D. Encouraged other people to do the same. Maybe Allah he's giving you the reward for this too.
This could be
it's all good. There's a quote from the Bible. In English, it says all good things.
Work for those who love the Lord. Often all good things come to those who love the Lord. But we have in Islam something similar, even more beautiful. It says that the Prophet peace be upon him said ajeeb. Amazing. Astonishing is the condition of a believer.
Because all things are good for them.
anything they want comes to them, they say thank you to a law. When the things come, they don't want their patient or the law. And all of it's good for them. But it's only in the case of a believer.
Now, is there anybody else who would like to accept this law? I'd like to see if I'm lucky. Yeah.
Any more brothers and sisters who wish to enter into Islam?
Michelle Another one. Another one. Mashallah.
This is amazing.
Okay, repeat after me, I swear.
Oh, I have a question. Or you have a question. No. Yes. That's it. I'm sorry for the misunderstanding here. Okay.
Okay, we don't have any more time for see I'm borrowing somebody else's time right now. So what I want to do now listen to me. Every Muslim here knows the importance of the Shahada. Some Muslims wish they could make Shahada, but never got a chance and they're too embarrassed in front of their friends and relatives. They never really practiced Islam. They want to but they don't know where to start. I'm telling you right now, if you don't pray, if you don't pass, if you're not following Islam, you're not a Muslim. And I know you want to be so what we can do, everybody we're getting ready to take a break. Anyway, stand up, just get up. Now, I know all of you are Muslim, but maybe
somebody here right now that never got to do their Shahada. So let's just all Sarah Shahada together, that gives that person a chance to say now I get to turn my life around. I'm going to be good from this minute forward. And that's a very positive step. You're ready. Don't sit back down. Bobby right down. You get up. That's it. Thank you very much. I shadow
