Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah bow Allah and he was a big meanie Chateau de la la la la. vie Sharona Mohammedan up devorah so my bad said I'm gonna come
I didn't have to ask him to repeat that did Are you listening to and watching Islam tomorrow broadcasting live today all the way from here in Sydney, Australia, he hosts use the bestest and for the next little bit we're gonna be talking about the miracles of Mohammed Salah Lyon was Salam. For those of you who are not familiar with the subject of Mohammed those who are watching this for the first time. You don't know a lot about it, this is a great opportunity to learn those of you that are Muslims watching this in the future, we'd like to remind you that presenting the case of Mohammed in Simple English terms for the non Muslim is a very good way to give the invitation or the
dollar. So that's what we're going to start with we're going to be talking about the Quran and Mohammed Salah Laila Islam, before we read from the Quran, we say Allah has built a mini shaytani regime, which basically means I seek refuge with a law from the evil of the cursed devil.
And when I say similarity with some of them, this more or less translates to English as peace and blessings be upon him, when this is something we say about all of our profits. Before I get started with this, though, I would like to give a little introduction or glossary to the terms that we'll be using. When we say a law, we don't necessarily mean just God, because a law has a specific meaning in the Arabic language, not just God, but the only God. Lila is the word in Arabic for God.
Only ha me is the plural, in English, you put us s afterwards. The word Islam means the submission to God to do what he wants you to do rather than obeying your evil self or you're following your vain desires. So whoever believes in the one true God,
that is never
having any partners, the God of the universe,
the God of Adam, Abraham, Moses, and Jesus and Mohammed, peace and blessings be upon them all.
And they want to do what God wants them to do. Basically, they're saying that they want to do Islam and Islam a person who does it is a Moute, Islam or Muslims. So when I use the terms, for those who are not familiar with this, this is all it means. I'm going to begin by mentioning some of the miracles of Mohammed Salah life Salaam, the first and foremost miracle which all of us are familiar with is the Quran itself. The word Koran in Arabic does not mean a book, the word in Arabic for book is keytab. Although we refer to the keytab of a law, meaning the book of Balaam, when we speak of caught on, it actually means that which is being recited. You cannot hold Quran in your hand because
you can't hold a recitation. This is in your throat, or in your heart or in your mind. You can hold the book that represents it but in Arabic, that's called first hot, or the mishap. This is the scripture of Islam.
the Quran was revealed over a 23 year period starting in the year 16, on the Christian calendar, and it continued in Revelation for 23 years, until the death of Muhammad sallallaahu salam, it started with the words ikura Bismillah, Arabic Allah the whole lot in it ends. Depending on if you go by the actual last specific words, or the last sort of the last sort of revealed is either Java or natural light you will back the last words were yomo Mountain laocoon Dino Kuhn. And now to give translation to that the first Revelation it comes to Muhammad peace be upon him while he's in a cave
in Jabal Nur, the mountain of light outside of Mecca, and the angel comes to him and orders him
When we translate to English, a lot of people use the word read.
And this takes us pretty far away from a meaning here because ikura actually means to do Koran because it comes from the same word. So if I said the Quran is recitation, means recitation and I tell you to do FRR I'm telling you to recite not read, although that's another word for reciting. But to be specific
matter because we're going to be talking about some revelations, before the Quran, which testified to this event. And for instance, in the book of Isaiah, which is in the Old Testament, it tells us in chapter 40, that the one talking about Muhammad peace be upon him, will be ordered to cry. He'll be ordered cry out, what shall I cry out?
So a crier. That's another word used a long time ago in England for a person who made announcements, or one who recited he was the town crier. So this is exactly right, because he will say what he hears there will not be of his own words. Check it out when you have a Bible sometime. Look at it, Chapter 40 in the book of Isaiah, and you'll see that this describes exactly the event that took place in the cave of Hira on Jebel norm. Now.
When we talk about the Quran, there are those who will say that he just wrote it himself.
A lawsuit panna Matala reveals certain words in the Quran that make it clear.
Have not the unbelievers consider that if this meaning the Koran were from other than the law, they would find within it many contradictions?
Well, that's a fair challenge, isn't it? If you're in doubt about it, then see if you find any contradictions, and then another verse he says, if you're in doubt about it, bring a book like it
1400 years and nobody's done that.
I want to read to you from the Quran and a third challenge when law says this is the Arabic Allah blaming Xi tonners him
while in Khun Fie or even Mim
Allah I'm the Nef to
be sure to min myth Lee.
What role shall shoe had a comb Mindanao Allah He in condoms are the king. This
translates more or less to the English thing. And if you guys and it's talking to the ignorant, and polytheistic
of the Quraysh, or the tribes, the Arab tribes, it's done. And to the Jews and Christians, if you're in doubt, concerning that which we have sent down to our servant, meaning Mohammed, then bring a surah like it surah means like chapter of it, and call your witnesses beside the law if you're truthful.
Oh, do want to mention that in the Arabic language, the term was plural was years, it seems like it's saying we like there's more than one a law. But that is because it's the Royal we because the law cannot be made plural. The word itself can even be made plural. So whenever you hear we in the Quran, that is simply the Royal way, like when the king or the queen gives any decree, they say we are decreeing the following and there's only one person, it's the Royal we
that verse indicates to us that if somebody wanted to really challenge this, all they would have to do is bring a surah like it
and if you were going to do it, you probably wouldn't want to try to attack or compete against Surah Baqarah would you that's 286 is or versus and it's pretty complex. In fact, I a number 282 is like the largest I in the whole Quran, it takes a whole page and nobody would want to even try that one. Ayah
but there is a surah a complete surah in the Quran. It says out of the blame and shutdown regime Bismillahirrahmanirrahim in rt nachal cozaar for so Lily Rebecca 100 in a shiny alcohol avatar.
This is the smallest surah of the Quran
yet nobody has been able to meet the challenge to produce a chapter like this in 1400 years. Now, some people have put things together, even put it on the internet.
One of those
Websites used to be called surah like it.com.
It was put together by some Arabs,
I don't know if they were trying to attack Islam or trying to demonstrate his stupid sense of humor.
Some of the Muslims became just violently and vehemently upset about this. And they insisted this website that would be taken down, it was causing international problems, etc, etc. But I said, leave me alone, man, it's proof
if that's the best you can do, because if you read it, it didn't even make any sense.
The profound meaning behind what a loss upon what Allah reveals can't be matched nor can the beautiful Arabic language.
The verses of Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Quran, are not sets that can be approached by anybody, regardless Muslim or non Muslim. Nobody can come up with something like it.
I would like to give you a sense though, of what the meaning
to the English
more or less would be
in our technical culture.
For sure a law has granted you use the term we have granted you Mohamad Oh, Gotthard and alkota is a river in paradise.
Therefore, turn to Him in prayer to your Lord and sacrifice to him only.
For the one who hates you, Muhammad,
he will be cut off.
the last word used in this ayah is a tar of tar. Have you know this word? How many of you know what it means?
They used to cut the tail of the dog off. This was something people still do that today. Certain kinds of dogs when they're born, they cut the tail really short. That's when you cut something off. You cut it off short. And they were making fun of Mohammed summer while it was solemn, at the death of his son. When his little son died, he was still young, very young.
I think a year and a half or something like this 13 months. I don't remember the exact age. But it was a baby and he was dying. And Mohamed Salah Salaam arrived in time to hold him in his arms, and his son died in his arms.
The enemies of Islam
began to make fun of him. Because he had no sons that had ever survived. He never did have any sons that survived.
And that was like his last child born that was a male and he died. So they were saying you're cut off, you're cut off your up door, because you're not going to have any genealogy. You're not going to have any sons to continue your religion.
And that's true. He never had any sons. Yeah, grandson's through his daughter, Fatima rhodiola. One. But that's not our point. The point is, they made fun of him for being as they said, cut off. And Allah said to him that for sure. There's a river for you. cozaar. Now, most of you know that this is the river where you're going to take your first drink from is the right. And the Prophet sighs Salaam is going to be there to offer you that drink. Right? And we're all looking forward to that. That's how
we make do offer that every day. I want that I want to go there. I want to get that drink all of us now.
Here in this very short, short surah Allah has covered a lot of information, mentioning about this river in paradise that Allah has granted for him so that he doesn't become don't become concerned, there's something better for you than what these people are making fun of you. And so just for suddenly, Li Rebecca 100
make yourself out to a law. Just keep worshiping along
and sacrificing for him.
Because the one that hates you the one that's making fun of you. This is the guy that's cut off and he's cut off big time because he's cut off from any posterity in anything good in this world and anything good in the next world.
All of this is coming in the mean
this is from the Tafseer by the way
Live in good deer and others.
And it's narrated on the authority of honest Malik really low. I know that the resource that I slammed said none of you will have faith. God loves me more than his father, his children and all mankind that's inside Bukhari. So even though he has no sons, biologically, all of us are more to him than his son would have been. Because why we love him more than we would love our own father, or our own children, or even ourselves.
So Isn't that beautiful? That's a it's a beautiful, talk about the opposite of what they said. He has more now there's a few more points that go along with that. Not only do the Muslims love him, respect him and honor him more than their own blood ties.
But they also asked for Allah's mercy and peace be upon him many times every day, when we say Allahumma salli Allah Mohammed, what Allah Allah Mohammed commerc la de la Brahim, while the Le Brahim in our family doing my G. And we say this over and over in our salon. And we say it over and over during the day in a time we mentioned his name, Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. Many of you know the famous study of the resource Salaam, which took place right before the beginning of Ramadan one year is at the end of Shabbat, and the prophets of Salaam, mounted the step, he stepped on a step. And he said, I mean, then he stepped on the next step. And he said, I mean, and he
stepped up higher. And he said, I mean, and he came back down, and they said was that he said, You didn't see it. But the angel jabril had come to me. And there were three things that he said to him. One of them was that somebody
would hear Mohammed's name and not say, Salaam Alaikum Salaam and this person would be cursed. Cursed is the one who hears your name and doesn't say that. And he said, I mean. So this is really important for us that we always say that. And there, there are two others. But this is our points, I'm going to just jump off of that and go on.
The next thing, when we talk about Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam. There are many other things in the Quran. The science, if you don't have this book, you should get it. It's called a brief Illustrated Guide to Understanding Islam, you can get it through our website and get it here at the local radio station. You can get it at the overview Center, a lot of a lot of places that you can pick this thing up.
It was written, by the way or compiled actually by Ibrahim, Abu Horeb, Ibrahim, and he's in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
The illustrations in it are taken from science books out of the library, with permission of course,
showing things that they've only discovered in the last century about the earth, planets, the universe, embryology,
the rivers, the seas, the list goes on. And then it mentions in here, the verses of the Koran that prove for sure this had to come from alaba because nobody knew it. 1400 years ago, they didn't even know it 140 years ago. And here it is, in this amazing book, and never with a contradiction.
There are some other points when we talk about the Quran, one of them is
when we say nobody can bring a book like it.
Is there another book on earth?
That has around 10 million people that memorize it?
Any book, telephone book, Encyclopedia dictionary, any book
is any book that was written 1400 years ago, in any language
of any size at all that people memorize today, and you get 10 million people memorized it. And that's a joke. Nobody will believe you.
How could it be
that this many people are memorizing and check this out? They're memorizing it exactly the way it was recited in the exact language of Photoshop or the classical Arabic. And guess what? Around 85% of those people are not Arabs and Arabic is not their native language.
In fact, there's no other religion that has such a book, or anything close to it.
Because no other religion promotes the idea of memorizing the text. In fact, if people did that figured out pretty fast that their religion was a little weird.
The Catholic Church for more than 1000 years for bid anyone, anyone who was not authorized, such as a priest or so on, to even have a Bible.
And if you tried to translate the Bible, to another language, you would be killed.
This was not a joke.
In the year 1511, in England,
the Bible was translated by William Tyndale,
from Latin, into English.
When they found him with it, they tied it to him and tied him up and burned him to death with the book on his chest.
That's a fact.
They didn't know he had a copy.
William Coverdale, one of his students came up with another version of it in about 1528, or something like that. There was another Bible later, 50 years after that. And then in 1611, a group got together and tried to make another translation based on older manuscripts
that were Greek, from Kony Greek, rather than the Latin, trying to get a little closer to the original. And that was called the Authorized Version of the Bible.
But guess what? It had to be retranslated the next year because it had so many mistakes.
It's true, that I read in the history of translations of the Bible's English language by ffs.
So, nobody has a book like Quran
want to mention a few of the things about our Prophet sallallahu wasallam.
He's mentioned, as I already told you in the Bible, but I want to give you another reference out of the Bible, in the English Bible, which survived we know the real Bible is not there, but just what's left even it says, In Deuteronomy, chapter 18, it's talking about that's the Old Testament, okay? That says that God's telling Moses, that I'm going to raise up
for the future generations of Israel is what he's talking about a prophet like you from amongst their brethren, or brothers, I will put my words in his mouth, and he will tell them everything I commend him. If anyone does not listen to my words, that the Prophet speaks in my name, I myself will call him to account.
Tell me what other prophet after Moses spoke in the name of Allah?
Do you know because the prophets, Islam always say Bismillah Bismillah? In the name of Allah? Was there any other prophet who spoke in the name of Allah?
Give me a minute. Think about it.
Anybody thought about it yet? minutes up.
The New York minute.
It's in it's in syrup. anomaly, which means the aunt.
Ah, so the man now
this is when
flooding the man or Solomon, as we call him in English, wrote a letter. You wrote a letter to Bill Keith or to Bathsheba? And he started it out like that when he said, in whom in Suleyman?
What No. Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. It says, barely This is from Solomon, in barely, In the name of Allah, most Gracious, Most Merciful. And that's how every surah of the Quran starts, except one adobo anyway.
exactly what Allah has said that this prophet will come and speak in his name. And that's Muhammad SAW Islam
We conclude from this that Mohammed was predicted in the Old Testament, but is also predicted in the New Testament.
According to the gospel of john, if you haven't read it, you might peek at it sometime check it out, I recommend you look at chapters 14 and 16. Because he's talking about somebody coming after him. The word in the cone a Greek was Paraclete dos. That's why I pronounce it. It's a dead language. We don't really know how they said it, but it's what it looks like on paper.
There's a it's a very long word, but there's one letter that looks a little different. If you change it letter, the word is exactly meaning the praised one. And that's what Muhammad means.
Then in case it happens in the book of john, the first chapter,
the Pharisees, who are the leaders are scribes for the Sanhedrin, which in Arabic is Madrid Shura for the temple, have approached yahia john the baptist, because he's preaching and healing people and baptizing them. And you know, he's fasting and doing stuff in there. They're, they're wondering, who are you? According to the Bible, they approach him and they say, Who are you?
Are you Elijah? Because in the Old Testament, they're looking for Elijah to come back, one of the prophets, they ran off. I mean, they killed a lot of their prophets and tortured him and stuff. But Elijah was one that they thought was coming back. So they said, Are you Elijah?
or Are You the Messiah? And that's translated as Christ?
Or are you that Prophet?
And to each of these, he said, No. And then they said, Well, if you're not Elijah, and if you're not the Messiah, and you're not that Prophet, then who are you?
We all know about Elijah, he's mentioned in Old Testament. Everybody knows the Messiah is Jesus. You know, we know that from the Quran. He's the Messiah. That's what a lot said, missy.
But who is that Prophet?
Who is that Prophet? And when you read that, as I mentioned, chapters 14, and 16, there's some other references in Matthew and other places in the Bible, even surviving, you know who it is, is none other than Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam.
Now, I want to make this comparison when it says, In Deuteronomy, a prophet from their brethren, who are the brother in to the many Israel who are the brethren, because these are descendants of his Huck or Isaac.
But Isaac had a brother, Ishmael, or his smile, and who are the descendants of Ishmael Arabs.
And where did Mohammed come from? So I Salaam from Abraham, Abraham through a smile. Exactly. And if they said, No, no, no, no, cuz some of them have told me no, no, that's talking about Jesus Really? It said, a prophet like Moses,
a prophet like Moses, right.
So let's look and see let's make our own comparison.
Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, peace be upon all of them.
Moses was born, how miracle birth are normal norm, but separated from his mother early on, right?
Okay. Prophet Mohammed says Salaam was born miracle are normal.
But he also was separated from his mother early on, because they took him to have a wet nurse that took care of him when he was a baby, and his dad died before it was born. Then his mother died a little after that, right.
But it was normal birth, Jesus, peace be upon him. not normal birth, miracle birth, no father, no father.
miracle. But he wasn't separated from his mother. He stayed with her all the time. In fact, he spoke about his mother from the cradle when he was a tiny baby,
defended his mother against the lies that they accused her of right.
Moses speak from the cradle. No. They said they, according the Bible, they put him in a little thing and put him in the water and he was floating down and he cried, but that's about it.
Moses was, grew up to be a normal boy.
And then one day became a profit.
Right. So same for Muhammad SAW Islam grew up as a normal boy.
They became Robert.
Moses was a shepherd.
Brother Mohammed says Tom was a shepherd. They both had sheep, goats, stuff like that.
But both of them were engaged physically in fights at some time or another. Both are made killed people. zetro.
Jesus, according to them, never killed anybody. According to them, he was just, you know,
very innocent of everything, according to them. Now.
This is interesting. We can go through their whole life and compare and compare and compare and see
who is compared to who.
Moses had a book.
Everybody knows that. The books of Moses, they always talk about the books of Moses, the commandments that came with Moses at Mount Sinai, right? Where did they come? Where did it start revelation for Moses starts on Mount Sinai, right? Is that a mountain?
To Racine is a mountain?
Probably mom is esalaam get through Revelation where the mountain
No, we still have the book. We still know about it. Isa or Jesus peace be upon him. He starts immediately when he's a baby. And nobody has ever seen this book. Have you ever heard a book called Jesus? No.
So you go through one by one by one by one, you're going to see which one looks like what.
Now, according to the Bible, it said
they believe Moses wrote it but then all of a sudden, whoever wrote it said Moses died and he was buried.
What's pretty hard to do after you're dead right down, you know, I died and I was buried, you know.
But anyway, he was died and he was buried.
Prophet Mohammed says Salaam died and he was buried right?
According to the Bible.
Jesus didn't stand the ground. He went up
to be with alone.
According to the Quran, he went up to be with the law.
According to what we know he did not.
Point is they're not the same. The ones is the same is Muhammad.
And Moses, these people.
That's a good point. You don't have to elaborate it. You don't have to drive people crazy with it and go on and on. But at least you should mention this to them. That if you really believe your book, read it. And think about it.
Problem with a lot of people though, you know what? Doesn't matter what you say they're gonna listen.
If you show them something, no, no, no, no, it's not that simple. It says that. It says read right there read our Ed. Yeah, but you have to read it in the spirit to understand it means blue.
Well, over here it says Up, up up. Yes. But brother, you have to have faith that means down.
many miracles come with prophets. This is how Allah gives them the clear identification, so you know, you got to follow them.
In surah, our room, for instance, it begins immediately talking about the Romans had been defeated in the nearest land, which was the Arabian Peninsula. And after this defeat, though, they're going to be victorious within three to nine years. It's a word in Arabic That means three to nine years.
And sure enough, they were badly defeated in Antioch and 613. As a result, the Persians swiftly pushed them on all fronts. It was hard to imagine the Romans would ever defeat the Persians. But sure enough, the Quran was right, because the Romans were victorious within three to nine years. It was in the year 629 years after the Romans defeat, the two forces met again on Armenian soil. The result was decisive victory in favor of the Romans, martial law. prophecy was fulfilled. Now that's a prophecy though, in the time of Muhammad. So the detractors from Islam would say, well, well, he made it up
after the fact.
Nevermind the fact that we know when it was revealed because people were reciting it, but they'll still say, Well, I don't believe that. I don't believe that.
It's not mentioned in this book.
But most of you will know it when I mentioned it to you the most amazing miracle that I know of dealing with the Quran and the Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam is one that I've thought about after I saw a movie called Back to the Future.
the movie Back to the Future talks about a guy who goes in the past, then he wants to go back to the future, they add another sequel to it, where he goes into the future, then a third sequel to it where it goes in the future. And then it goes away in the past, back to the old west, and it goes back at these going back and forth, back and forth. Michael J. Fox was in there.
But I thought about this, and then I thought about something. Nobody could really predict. things that happened in the ancient past that people are arguing about, they don't even know what it is for sure.
But somebody to predict something in the past, and then make a connection with that to something in the future. Do you think somebody could do that?
That would be really tough. I want you to take a subject that happened, let's say 3000 years ago, okay. And I want you to take that subject, and then predict something about it. 1500 years from now, and let's see how well you can do?
Well, the good news is you won't be here, so nobody can blame you.
But the Quran is still here. And we just found out something in the 1970s. And amazing thing.
For a long time centuries,
not just the Christians, but even some of the Jews people have been arguing about Moses at a Salam. Did he really even exist? Or was he just somebody that they made the story up about? Big Time scholars of the Bible have actually said that this is just a nice story. There really wasn't anybody named Moses. There wasn't anybody named Pharaoh. There really was no incident of the Jews being taken into captivity, or the punishment that they went through, and then being saved and taken away from that. It's just something that somebody made up. And they even say it was made up probably during the Babylonian exile, which did happen, this is on record. And when they came back from it,
they just put all that together to kind of, you know, encourage the troops and stuff like that. This is actually in books that I've read about the scholars of the Old Testament.
So the Prophet sallallahu wasallam,
only repeats what he hears.
The angel jabril is representative of law and tells him to recite, he recites and what he hears, he recites and the people recite the same thing. And we've been doing that mouth to ear and ear to mouth ever since.
In the Koran.
There's a statement,
a strange statement
that was actually discovered by a non Muslim.
In the early 70s.
He was one of the world's top surgeons and lectures, scientists from France, Dr. Maurice Wu Chi.
He was asked to go to Cairo, Egypt, to examine the corpse of a mummy.
They wanted to do some forensic work on it, to get some information and discover whatever they could from this moment.
He was amazed because he said, we can prove that this person died of drowning.
He was so fixated meaning that his lungs filled with water, and he died from this. He said, therefore I have to conclude from this and the time period, this fits exactly the story of the Bible. This was Pharaoh of the time of Moses, and he was so amazed. He was shocked.
But do you know what happened?
The people in Cairo happened to be Muslims, of course. They said this is no big deal. We already know that.
He said yes. But we've discovered him and they said, Well, we know that too. He said no. I mean we this is his body. And it's here and they said well we know because it's in the Quran, he said the what?
So he gets introduced to a subject called the Arabic language.
He began to study it until he could understand the Arabic well enough to actually translate for himself.
because he wants to know what is this book, because it says in it, that Allah is going to punish Pharaoh in a very specific way that he is going to drown him, but he's going to preserve his body
as the sign.
And sure enough, he's assigned for all to see today because that body has been put on tour and taken all around the world to show this Pharaoh, if you haven't seen it, I have I saw him when he's an exhibition Chicago, having to be up there, went to museum and so on.
They've toured this body around the world and said, most likely, this could be Moses. Not Moses himself, but the Pharaoh of Moses time. There he is. Amazing, huh?
But that's not where it ends. Dr. Wu hai continued his study, until he managed to go to the disciplines of geology and geography,
astronomy, embryology, and prove without a shadow of a doubt that every single reference in the Quran to science is absolutely, in fact actually proven to be correct.
It was his book that was first published in the French language
that really stood the science people up on their ear. It was translated then into the English language. And it was called in English, the Bible, the Koran and science.
He wrote another book, The origin of man,
because it became evident without any doubt. What Allah had said in the Quran proves
there is a God of creation and human beings did not come from monkeys.
And we believe that as Muslims, although I still wonder, you know, when I look at my brother in law, I can't help but think that nevermind, it's another subject.
I mean, his knuckles dragged the ground. This guy's anyhow.
I just want to keep you awake. Anyhow.
Dr. Keith Moore, top embryologist in his field,
a world renowned embryologist
in Toronto, Canada
also made the same conclusion that Dr. Wu Chi had made after he studied the Quran in the Arabic language.
I have it on my website, you can see the video do videos we have of Dr. Keith Moore, speaking about the Quran and embryology and saying it is impossible that anybody even 100 years ago, could have so well described the formation and what happens at the time of conception. when a baby is conceived in the womb of the mother and the development of it through the trimesters until the time that it's delivered. He said this is impossible, even 100 years ago, much less 1400 years ago in the desert of Arabia. He said therefore I have to conclude that the Quran is from Allah. He's pronounces it Allah. It's on our website, you can see it. Now the difference between Dr. Wu Chi
and Dr. Keith Moore, is that Dr. Wu Chi before he passed away, became a Muslim hamdulillah. And I know brothers who actually used to pray with him, talked about him said he was a great guy.
But, Dr. Moore, even though he said that was from Allah, he did not decide to become a Muslim. In fact, as recent as a couple of years ago, he was approached by the FBI, and asked, Why are you endorsing a book of terrorism?
So he had to recant all of that and said, No, no, no, I don't want to say anything about it anymore.
That's exactly what happened.
Regardless of what anybody says, about the science, and about the Quran. The bottom line is this.
It's not a book about science, or there's scientific things in it.
It's not a book of poetry, although it's very poetic, and it's very beautiful.
It's not a book history, although it very clearly defines historical things that took place. It's not a book of prophecy, although it prophesied past and future events.
It's a book of guidance.
That's the specific purpose of the Quran itself. And the purpose of this Quran is to guide who
mankind and jinn because we were only created for one purpose and a lot tells us in the Quran wallmark collective jinn well in really admitting that he only created us to worship Him alone, without any partners.
But how will we know how to do that? Without guidance, people would make up something to represent a law, and they'd make their own way to worship it. In fact, many people say, Well, what difference does it make if I believe in one God? Doesn't matter how I worship Him? Have you heard that argument? All of us have? Who cares? You know, guy said he's a Buddhist. Another guy said he's a Hindu. Somebody else said he's a Christian. We all believe there's really only one God, what difference does it make leave us alone? You know, we're okay. We're all gonna make it right. Wrong.
Wrong. Nobody's religion is gonna get to a law. Nobody's religion, we'll get to a law.
Only the way that Allah has prescribed himself. So if anybody's made up a way, why would Allah be obliged to accept it?
Somebody said, Well, I think the best way to do worship God is to take a tree, cut it down and make it in the shape of a big spear, you know, and a brown ball, and then jump up and down in front of it five times a day. Hmm.
Yeah, I like that. He says, No, in fact, I'll pick it up twice every year. And that'll be part of my worship. It's a great big thing, but I'll do that show how much I love God. But did God ask him to do that? No. He just made it up.
I saw Christians they were weightlifters.
They call himself the Power Team Power Team for Jesus lifting weights for Jesus
on television, anybody ever heard of that? They did it man lifting weights for Jesus.
I guess he appreciated save him all that effort know.
What kind of stuff he says
is the logon except that
this is what it means when we talk about in the dean in the law, he'll Islam, Allah is only going to accept that which he is ordained.
He's only going to accept that you submit to what he wants you to do.
So the only way you can do that is to know what it is.
I'm going to conclude the night's program by mentioning this. Every Muslim every day asks for guidance. All of us do. We constantly asking a lot of guidance.
Some Christians made fun of us for that. Yeah. They said Why? You don't know that you're guided we are nowhere guided. All we did was say Jesus is God's Son and God Darren cross blah, blah, blah. And now we're guided hamdulillah we don't have to do anything else.
Whereas with us as Muslims, we're constantly asking along guide us, guide us guide us.
Right. How many times a day do we say it Dina Serato monster King.
Guide us to the straight path.
Immediately after this seven verse prayer. Look what Allah says in the Quran Allah the lay ministry Donna regime Bismillah hirak mentoring him. I leave Lam Meem logical key who read Buffy who dilute the king Allah Deena up Nuna bill baby where you want to salata, well Mema Razak, New Moon cocoon. Now stop right there. Because the point I want to make is right there in the very beginning. Who the Luther King. This is the book we're in there is no doubt and it is a source of guidance for those
who fear their Lord. They have Taqwa for Allah.
You asked for guidance. And he told you there it is. This is it. This is the book. There's no doubt in it.
Meaning what there must be a book out there with some doubt in it. And this one has no doubt in it. But it's not going to guide anybody except those who have Taqwa for Allah.
Believe in the Bible, which is the unseen, establish their Salah, and pay the Zakat for the benefit of those brothers or sisters who think that I'm Muslim and that's it. I don't need to pray. You're not guided.
Allah said that in that verse. Real Clear. Understand, no Salah Murphy
and you're just playing a game with your own brain and you're going to lose no Salah.
No hedaya you want the Quran to guide you stablish the Salah. Got it. That's where it's at. We ask Allah to guide all of us. We ask a lot of forgive us. We asked a lot you put us on the men had, you're resourceful ally was salam, the methodology of our Prophet peace and blessings be upon him.
And we asked him to open our minds and hearts to know more about the Syrah or the biography of our beloved Nabi, the prophet muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam. I mean, the first question everybody always asked me, How did you come to Islam? The answers on my website, go to Islam. tomorrow.com is lm T, Om owrow.com, and read about priests and preachers entering Islam. A Catholic priest entered Islam the night before I did. hamdulillah came to Islam, my wife immediately came right after me. Later, my father, my children is a few members of my family. And still I'm working on others.
That was 14 years ago, a lot of people asked me that question. So get that one out of the way first.
A lot of people also ask the question about people coming into Islam these days? And how can we give doubt to them? That will tell you Islam is still the fastest growing religion in the world. I'm delighted.
And it's not because of us. It's in spite of us. This is from a law.
The Christians spend millions of dollars and have teams going out for all their different denominations working really hard. We don't have anybody doing anything.
And they're coming to us like crazy.
And they keep bashing Islam and saying how abusive we are to women. That's like their number one thing. Islam has nothing for women, no women's rights abuses, the women don't go there. Who's the number one coming into Islam? Women four to five to 10 times as much as the man home. There's a lot of bill out of me.
And what did the law say? They plan and law plans. And who's the best of planners? Hello, I'm Mark.
Hello. Yeah, as long as you don't light it.
The minute you light it, actually, you know, cigarette smoke kills innocent people.
Because anybody in the room with you or in the automobile with you, even a child breathing that can contract cancer, and they can have that latent inside of them for years, and then later develop it after they're full grown. That happened to my wife, she never smoked in her life. Yet she had cancer, which almost killed her, she still suffers from the effects 20 years later, because her parents were heavy smokers.
So not only can you be asked about the damage you do to yourself, you may actually be on the Day of Judgment accused of murder. I highly recommend if you have that habit, get rid of it. Quick,
Ah, somebody is asking about can a Muslim, marry a non Muslim?
Can American Muslim marry non Muslim? The general answer is no.
Just if you want a fast answer on that is no. Allow them but here's why.
When you say a non Muslim, you've included everybody that's not Muslim.
That includes atheists, Buddhists, Hindus, everything.
Allah said in the Quran, it's believers marrying believers.
When there are special occasions
There is permission and it has limits. Islam has a concept that's very nice, called rights and limits, rights, but limits.
Even though the Sahabi rhodiola Juana Jemaine traveled all the way to China, they traveled all the way
into Spain across the northern part of Africa, they Islam went everywhere.
But even though they went in all these places, they were not allowed to marry the women unless the women became believers.
They had to be believers. Even when a lot of
speaks about the, the women from them. There's two conditions there that are real clear. They have to be believers in the book.
And they have to be virgins.
And here in Australia,
I heard about the beach in the summertime. Okay, forget about it.
The reality is
many times, I've visited so many communities, I visit three or four communities every week, 52 weeks a year.
So after visiting maybe 300 communities, 400 communities every single year.
I'm telling you,
it's absolutely the same problem over and over and over. When I'm getting ready to leave a brother always comes up to me, brother, I need to talk to you in private brother, I need to talk to him. I just got to ask you one thing. See, I got to talk to you please, please. And then we stepped over the side. And the first words from his mouth is see my wife, she's not a Muslim. And here's my problem. I said, No, no, you already told me the problem.
You just told me the problem. Your wife's not a Muslim? Because it's gonna get worse. You have any children? No. And I said, then just get away quick
before you do, because if you're already having problems, you think it's going to get better after you have children? No, most not. You cannot make these women become believers.
A lot of men think they can do that. A lot of men have this idea that there's some kind of macho, you know, religious wonder who they're going to just do amazing things. And this girl is going to convert to Islam. And by the way, he didn't even pray.
Or barely, you know, don't even know how to make a loop. And now he's gonna go out here and grab this girl and he's gonna twist your brain around, and she's just gonna fall in love with him, and he's gonna lead her straight to LA.
This is really sad.
And if they have children, it gets even worse.
There is really no Islamic State on earth today, there is no Khalifa
there is no Islamic State, you cannot really and truly guarantee that you are able to give the proper rights to your wife or to your children. When you try to do this kind of thing when you marry a woman that's not a Muslim.
Even if she's a hokitika, because and I have talked to some of these women Hamdulillah, someone will enter Islam, and that's beautiful.
But for those who don't enter into Islam, what happens?
they wind up resenting the husband, they start working against him, they start figuring ways to mess him up so that he won't pray.
Or that he won't fast. they'll cook something, Oh, I forgot your fasting, but I made this milk once you go and need it.
They're purposely exposing the things trying to get him away from the day they become [???] onto him. And when they have children, they use that against him.
I'm not saying everyone does that. But that's the rule. It's not the exception.
So if you find a woman that's a real believer that really follows her book. That's great. But I doubt you're gonna find one who's that religious who wants to come over and marry a terrorist? You know?
I gotta wonder about that. Because they believe there's something wrong with us. Why would they be coming over to us? Ah.
I remember one chick was talking about a brother brought a lady to him. This was in upstate New York. The mom was saying that here comes this brother brings the lady in and he says, she's Atul. keytab we want to get married. He said, okay, step out of the room. He goes, huh? He said, I want to talk to step out of the room. So he said he started talking to me. He asked her he said,
you're a Christian. She said more or less.
He said, Okay, you go to church now.
Do you read the Bible? No. You pray? Yeah.
You know, the 10 commandments, was that
can you read the Lord's
Yeah, now I lay me down to sleep I pray the Lord my soul the keeper or something like that, right?
It's not even close by the way. That's what little kids say.
So this is a girl. No clue, right?
Just Christian by name. He brought the brother back in. He said, Okay. I can't do this marriage, he said.
He said, I have a checkbook.
Yeah. Watch out.
It's not gonna benefit her and it's not gonna benefit you to have a marriage like that. You don't want to make her miserable. Let her go her way.
This is a man
1660 year old former city council inspector and church leader with a wife and children.
to killing 10
way he dealt with these people. unbelievable how he tortured them and killed them mutilated their bodies
and did sex even with their dead bodies. Right here. Today's paper
another one right beside it.
A place called How do you pronounce Auckland
Auckland. Okay. former leader of the Christian political party yesterday pleaded guilty to more charges of sexual abuse against young girls.
In the Christ Church district court he admitted to five sexual offenses against girls under 12.
He's 46 years old. He had earlier pleaded guilty to another independent assault of a girl eight years old.
And when he did this, he was married and had 10 children.
This explains why when people hear about Islam, they confuse it with their lifestyle and say horrible things.
It's because they don't understand. Islam forbids any sex at all outside of marriage.
Can we have girlfriends? No. Can the girls have boyfriends? You know, when they call hang out together palimony buddies, you know this, you know,
have a few kids together and decide whether or not they want to get married. You know, they do that.
They call them love children,
which call them bastards.
That's what it says in the dictionary. My parents don't get married. didn't call them love children. It's amazing in it.
By the way, have you thought about this? When you balance things out in Islam, you really learn a lot.
Man in Islam is forbidden to marry a woman who's already married.
But a woman in Islam is allowed to choose from any man in the community as long as he doesn't have four.
So who's the one with the limit here?
If there's 100 men and 100 women,
okay, 100 men and 100 women.
If most of the men are married,
a woman can still choose wide open because she can still choose from any of those men.
The women are the ones that are having the bigger choice, not the men. A man has a limit of four. And they cannot be married to somebody else. Whereas the woman has the choice of the whole entire community of men as long as they're not married apart.
Is that your fault?
And she already knows how he'll treat her because he she says Look what he's doing with this lady. I don't like that. I won't marry him. But I like what this guy does with that wife. I would like that for me. Okay, all married. sees is that.
But what's happened is we Muslims have forgotten what Islam is really about. The men have forgotten and the women have forgotten and we're trying to make ourselves fit into something else.
Another problem we have is we want to wait until we've got a PhD degree to get married. Want to wait until they get the degree and get the job and get the business going, get all that money together so you can pay the $40,000 that you have to give over to her family to get married, right?
That's totally out of Islam.
That's forbidden in Islam.
The prophet SAW Salaam said as soon as they're old enough, get them married, get them married,
then you eliminate the problem.
Simple as that.
And you don't need these large amounts of money even if somebody doesn't have money at all. You can teach her when I have the grand isn't that true?
But the problem is, again, we've been exposed to other people's society, other people's understandings, and we're following that instead of following Islam. Oh, yeah, we still grow the beard right? And we still run around with a cookie on the head and carried dicker beads and swinging them around.
But we don't follow Islam.
We really don't. Cuz we don't know what it is. Understanding
hamdulillah we hope I'll be merciful, honest. But I was telling one of the brothers today
if Omar radiola Juana or any of the Sahabi would come in and see us
I'm sure they'd be judging each other going. What are these guys?
What's up with this?
Look at them.
Look how they treat each other. Look at the way they act.
Wow. what religion you think you're wrong? I don't know.
Listen to them. They're reciting something. What is that? I don't know. It's not Quran we know that. And look, they're trying to line up not very good.
The somebody's stepping out in front of them going it looks like you're leading them What are they doing? Is that salon now? Not even close.
About the only thing that might recognize if we said La la la la. And that might be the only thing to stop them from cutting our heads off.
That's how bad we really are. I might be wrong.
Is Riba really
the only commandment in the Koran that has a verse associated with it that says a law in his messenger declare, Harb war on you and you ask is it really harem
That's amazing. But check we have a federal we have a federal Oh really? Yeah, the video says the first house you can buy it on Reba if you know if you really need to It's okay. And that way I can use my money for other stuff I need to buy a new car and some furniture and so is okay. And then maybe if I could but can I get the second house on Reba Do we have a fact Well, we have a fedra
said I'm sorry brother. You're mispronouncing that. That's best What?
Can't believe he said that.
I was coming down the steps in the masjid in New York. Some of the young Shabaab were up ahead of me. They didn't know I was right behind him coming down the steps. The boys were telling each other he's not a shake. No one said Yes he is. No he's not. Yes, he is. No he's not. Why do you say that? Cuz he's funny.
