I told him Do you know why I kissed my hand? He said Why? I said, I know it was clean.
This Mila Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah while Ali was a big minor Chateau La ilaha illallah wa Chateau Mohammed and I'm the Hoover source.
All right. Mashallah.
Is everybody here?
If you're not here yet, raise your hand.
Okay. 123 All right. Well, we'll wait for you. Now.
My name is Yousef, can you say you sir?
You said it exactly right.
All these years my wife still says useless.
Yeah, well, what can I say? Anyhow,
I just wanted to remind myself on this great opportunity,
about some words, I love words. And the first word which came
in the Quran
is a word derived from the same root as the word or on the word is
It's a good
reminder for all of us to think about the value of words.
The first word I want to remember that Islam brings to us today that we can focus on that we can use is the word starts with the letter C.
Islam makes it abundantly clear
that you have a choice.
You and I, we have a choice, the creator and Sustainer of all that exists.
He put us in such a way
that if you want to believe it's very easy, but if you don't want to believe it's your choice, the choice is always there, isn't it?
Another word I want to remember, starts with the letter A.
The word is Avenue.
and so Islam is bringing us a clear way.
A clear avenue to go make the choice to go on this avenue.
It's called Dean
in Arabic language Dean, this is your Avenue. This is your way this is what you do.
Another word it starts with our
the letter our
Islam is not asking you to believe anything
except what's right in front of your face.
You don't have to come up with some mumbo jumbo about numbers. mumbo jumbo about Gods and Goddesses and No.
in front of your face. Very simple reality. Allah asks us again and again, in his book to reflect on this reality. The reality.
Another letter, it starts with the letter E.
Islam provides for us excellence in today's world.
The excellence that's devoid
in other systems
of social injustice, inequity,
injustice, but when we compare it to the reality,
go back to that word of the excellence that we find in Islam.
We see this is the only Avenue back to the letter A.
But will now come back to the first letter
C choice. It's always your choice. Always it's your choice. Most of you were born in Islam. Let me ask this question. How many of you How many of you are born Muslims? Raise your hand.
Come on, get it up there. All right. Is there anybody here tonight? That's not a Muslim? Somebody you're not a Muslim? Raise your hand.
How do you like being surrounded by all these terrorists?
Most of us slip that slip, sorry.
By the way, you're most welcome. We love to have you be with us. We think you are very special to us. Because you came to here to listen, partake along with us from these great events, to all of our guests, Muslims and non Muslims alike. To the dignitaries who are with us today, my honoured brothers, and teachers in Islam, I love all of you so much for the sake of a law, I ask Allah to guide us so that we can choose the right avenue of reality in excellence.
Having said that, this is only the inauguration. This is the beginning talk for our programs that we look forward to the next three days, we very much
appreciate all of those volunteers, the many people behind the scenes that you don't see them, who are working so hard, and have been working for months to prepare this, they did the real work. Those of us who talk, we got the easy job, we just open our mouth and let the words come out.
The rest of the brothers and sisters have been doing the real work. So we want to show real appreciation. I only have this one. But in spirit, I'm saying take a picture of it and share it with each other.
Because the real flowers go to them, they did the work. And we appreciate that.
By now it should have occurred to you
that the letters that I chose
must have some meaning because you suggest this just doesn't give that kind of talk unless there's something behind it. So let's go back and see what the first letter was choice. C.
Avenue Ave, a reality, our excellence II.
What does that spell
and more than anything else, more than anything else. Islam brings this reality to us to care.
Just as we take care of our religion, and take care of our relationships with other people.
The care that we have for Almighty a law and the care that we have for everybody, even our enemies, we still care.
Even our enemies who fight us, even though we might have to fight them, even then in our hearts, we're still praying Allah guide this person, guide this person.
And there's no other way of life that teaches you
to keep praying even for your enemies like this.
It happened at the time of Muhammad Salallahu alaihe salam, when his cousin Ali radi Allahu anhu, was engaged in battle and fighting against the enemy and the enemy, his sword broke or he lost it.
And he assumed that he was about to kill him.
So he did the only thing you could think of.
And he spit
the spit on Ali.
So Ali pulls back to suit.
What? You're not going to tell me? He said no.
Because had I told you before it would have been for Allah this religion this Deen with now.
But if I do it now it's for my own self. And this is forbidden in Islam.
When we fight,
when we engage, it is only to raise the banner of Islam, to bring about morality, to bring about peace, to bring about justice. Because we really do care
if it's anything else, it's not for Islam. And the programs that you hear ahead of us now, you're going to hear some of the best of the best speakers in the English language present and bring to you this message. The message of really What does Islam bring to us today?
And all of the speakers are much more eloquent than I
but they let me be first because I'm the oldest and the cutest
but I want Oh my should have come here. Oh my should come up here quickly. This Come on.
Now. Well, my son is coming. I want to tell you something.
Something it was mentioned here on the stage tonight.
But I heard it also from our brothers earlier, talking about women. And how important are the women to us.
And our Prophet sallallahu wasallam said, the best, the best. Kira calm, the best of you
have the best your wife.
And he said, and I'm the best of you to my wife
is just the token.
But this is the lady who keeps me going, though, when she married me. She said, I have a stick. I have a stick. And I don't want to get married to anybody except the man who wants this stick.
And upon law, the first thing I saw was the stick and I said, I wish I have a stick like this. She said, I know this is the right guy.
Number one in our family is always the dour to Islam, above all other things. And for almost 18 years, I've had a good companion helping me share this message. And I really would like to take the opportunity to just say
deserve to love her. Show us the best is for
we're hoping to have the question and answer session.
Before we begin the question and answer session
and in order to derive maximum benefit out of the limited time we have available with us
these are the some of the rules that have to be followed.
We have three mics placed in this convention hall.
Two for the James and one for the ladies.
The gents can queue up on both the question answer mics that have been provided.
And one of them is also
presented the sisters corner.
Questions must be on the subject,
which is peace and prosperity. Islam the goal for humanity any question which is out of the topic will not be entertained or first preference will be given to the non Muslim and the first preference will be given to them. sidequest the volunteers to kindly
have the non Muslims pose the questions first.
Before posing your question, it is important for you to name yourself and your occupation in order for
the speakers to understand your background and answer accordingly.
May we have the first question from the brother side? Any questions from the brother side? mic one
has a question.
We're not doing together. I gotta go over there.
Are you nervous? There's only 50 million people watching me on TV right now.
You can be over here and I can be over there. inshallah.
So we have the first question from the other side from Mike one, please. So when it comes to nominal, my name is Hassan. And I'm a student.
First of all, I would like to tell you that my Islamic knowledge is quite limited. But yet I remember I have the ease in which Rasulullah salatu salam has said, the probable of a man who ties a great Lord behind his head resembling data for women will have his hands tied behind on the Day of Judgment. Could you please raise the issue that you have considered behind your head? I'm really sorry. If that hurts you.
Thank you very much. It comes cinema to them to cut. Well, I'm glad you brought that question up, because I'm sure a lot of people wondered about that the same way.
The fact is, my wife and I,
we intended to go for Hajj and I said I'm not going to cut my hair until I go for Hajj. I was sure was going to go for us. There was no doubt in my mind. Even if somebody said Are you sure? I say yes. They say did you say inshallah I'll say it but I don't need to say it because I mean no one
I'm gonna go, I have an invitation from a prince. I have everything lined up. I'm gonna go Don't worry about it.
But then it snowed the biggest snowstorm we ever had in Virginia, so much snow, we couldn't even walk across the street. The snow was so bad. That immersive, which is only four houses from my house, I had to go real slow through the snow to get there. And hamdulillah when I got there, I gave Shahada to somebody. I'm the law. But we couldn't go to the embassy because they couldn't open washington dc was shut down. You know that it was in all the news.
And then we missed that. Well, we missed the hearts first, then we missed this chance when the snow came that was twice
so then I realized
I forgot to say inshallah and really mean it. So it's up to a law. I'm waiting until the opportunity to go cuz I want to shave it all off.
But you mentioned the hoodies. It's interesting. That's not the way I understood it. But it's okay. The other hoodie though, it mentions about the one who came with a ponytail
And when again for the salon resource sites that I'm told him
in there, it makes sense to with you.
So when I do the salon, you'd be sure to remind me again, that I'll do that Nakula care.
By the way, look real close. When it comes to question and answers, this is not Dr. Sacra night. Okay.
Next question. salaam aleikum, Sheikh Yusuf, may Allah reward you for all your hard work? I'm a Muslim convert from Ireland. My name is Abu Musa. And I just wanted to know whether you have a college or school set up in the states and for Muslim converts and to do Islamic degree or for children. And also I was thinking of moving to the states but which parts of the states would you recommend for someone like myself who's a new Muslim? Thank you. Zack Allah Kira salaam aleikum, Sharon McGarry, and we'd love to be there in Ireland with you arlindo the difficult country to be a Muslim. To be sure. To be sure. We were there. We know.
I would like to mention that. First of all,
I don't have any school, a formal school don't offer any degrees in anything. I'm the one who needs to learn. But what we did we put something that's available to you now you don't have to go anywhere except to your computer and to the internet.
From right here in UAE. Check Salam Allah Marie is helping us in Abu Dhabi. mortarion here Sabri Mohamad, sadly. And also with us right now is the man said, ready? There he is right over there. Reggie rugging. Up to you is from Egypt, you put that sound anyway, sitting right there. And other brothers helping us some promise to help. But I won't mention his name. I'll just kind of point and smile. And what we
what what we'll, what we'll do is share with you how you can do it right now tonight, chat islam.com. That's one of our many websites to help new people like us to talk directly to any of our scholars every day, every single day. And there's a place for them to ask questions and get answers and listen to talks that are live and pre recorded. And who's saying he is supposed to be kicking in on that too. But I won't mention your name either. Oops, too late. Anyhow, that's just remember chat. islam.com we have real scholars there to really help you and answer a lot of questions. Thank you, sister. Next question.
Columbia. Okay. Yes, brother, your name and your occupation, please. Yes. I am. Ahmed from Egypt. I asked about what the real role of women in Islam
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala Abu asked me, What are you put your hand up because I can't see it? Where's?
Where is the black man?
This is our
society room you should know on society. That
zakka lectures Good question. The role of the women in Islam. You can go to mess and see quickly because the women in men are tough.
They will teach you the role. You don't have to do much. They will teach you what their role is because they're tough. And it's good actually, it's in
You're staying and we have a whole series of better, but I'll just tell you one word. I love words.
Can a woman be a mom? Can a woman be a mom? This was a big question, you know?
And they were making a big problem about this for some of the Muslims. A woman, a mom.
You know, they said many things. ajeeb. But guess what?
One of the scholars, he was sitting with me and he said, look at this.
When a man is the mom,
in his home, or in the masjid, he is the man what is what? leader, leader of the salon? But as soon as he said,
then he's finished. He's not the mom anymore. There's no sir yes or no.
But a woman
when she has a baby,
Mohammed, the mother of Yes or no? Yeah. And so Oh, it means leader. Because it comes from the exact same route.
But it's different. Because a woman is different than a man. A man is only a leader sometimes. But a mother is a leader all the time. And by the way, you remember the details all summer lighting salon?
is not for me, I learned it from the scholars. But the privacy rights alone.
He was asked a question
after a law and His messenger who has the most hot, the most rights on me.
Color Susana, your mother.
And then your mother, and then your mother.
And then your father.
This was a shock. Because at the time this came, nobody had something like this throughout the world, not just in the Arabian Peninsula, which was filled with
they use the word jolly ignorance, they were mistreating women in a horrible way. You don't want to know how bad they had the treatment. But at the same time, it was this way in other parts of the world to the church
of Rome. In the seventh century. This is the same time as Muhammad SAW Salaam coming with the message. The six hundreds, the church of Rome conveyed a council. And part of what they talked about the subject is does a woman have roof? Does she even have a soul? So look how Islam is bringing this again. And again. And again. showing us the respect the dignity and honor of each but keeping everything in a balance always. Right. We talk about women's rights, children's rights, grandparents rights, the rights of animals, the right, yes, even the rights of the nature itself, the rights of trees that people talk about today. Islam always said this, always.
But it also brings the balance the limits the limits.
I have rights, you have rights. We both have limits, and this is what people forget.
So his name gives us the balance. Very good question. Thank you.
Next question from Mike number two from the brother side.
salaam aleikum wa.
Salaam Alhamdulillah. I came here to see you, brother, your sister. I always see you on the internet. Alhamdulillah I've learned a lot from you. My name is Salvador. I came from the Philippines born in a Catholic family and I embraced Islam.
I would just like to ask the question because the Hadith that you have mentioned regarding the who has the most rights after a law and residents are allowed asylum was our mother. Unfortunately until now, my mother is not yet a Muslim. inshallah Allah will guide her inshallah it's always my thoughts in Sharma
Oh, can I show
to my mother, even though she stepped on Mr.
zapple up here. So
yes, brother, understand where you are coming from because
my mother also did not accept this lamb.
And I didn't really understand some people told me when I came in Islam, you have to hate anybody who has
cafer some people, misguided people told me you have to hate anybody is not Muslim. If they're capper they are. They said it like this. They are.
You have to hate
us What about my own mother,
you have to hit.
One of the things that this conference is going to show us, all of us from our dear beloved teachers and scholars of Islam, we're going to find that this is a big mistake, the way that they said it. We as Muslims always hate injustice. We hate volume.
We hate anything that takes people away from the light of Islam, we hate the people who are doing the Haram while they're doing the Haram. But you don't have to hate your mother.
You don't have to hate your parents.
You keep praying for them.
And you keep asking Allah to guide them. Because even if they're not Muslim, they still have the rights on you. And the proof is not from me.
The proof is not from today's show you saying this or that? The proof is in this book in Surah lookman chapter 31 verse 12, kind of make you think about Zack or nitrite anyway,
that Allah, Allah is telling us about Look, man, and look, man, is somebody talking to his son, and he says, Oh, my son.
You have to worship Allah alone without any partners. This is the first rule in Islam always done.
and obey your parents in everything in law, except if they want you to worship other than the law. This you can't do. But everything else, you can give them service and kindness. You can put your head on the ground, they can step on your head, okay? But don't worship other than along. This is number one rule. So please keep giving them service and don't argue Oh my god. Here's another point. Some brothers told me everything in Islam is debate, debate debate. So I started debating with my father right away. When I got to Islam, I turned to him with the very same thing that I was debating against Islam. But now I came from the other point. And we would argue night after night, and my
father would listen to me, I'm shouting and he would shout and I would shout, and some brothers came to my house, some very beautiful brothers. You know what they said, said, Don't do this. Your father has rights on you. And you cannot do this.
You just give him service and pray for him. within one week, within one week, I heard my father say these words. There's no god except the law. And Muhammad is His Messenger.
Your job in my job is to live the message. Live the message, and let people observe and understand from our action. When the wife of the Russell's sallallahu alayhi wa sallam
said these words some people miss translated I think
they didn't give the meaning.
But if you would like to see the Quran walking,
if you want to see the Quran in action,
look to Mohamed Salah. What
do you think it means that
people saw Mohammed they saw I saw him they saw the way he was with the people, they observed something that we all need to know about a swap,
Then it's up to alarm if alarm wants him to be guided to be guided. So show them give them the real Islam of Islam, show them with your action. And then every night, pray for them. And the brothers that I met from Pakistan, the teachers that we had, they said these words, be like a farmer, plant your seeds in the day
and then water them at night. The seeds are the seeds of the dollar of law, the law in the law. And then in the night you get up and you cry. So it's down in the day and in the night and maybe
up to a law but before they die, maybe allow guide them I pray for them. I sincerely ask the Lord to guide them. I mean
thank you for
all of you pray for his parents pray for all those who just haven't got the message yet. Let's make the offer them a lot help them to see the truth on me. I mean, should we have the next question from the sister side
This is a question from a probably an non Muslim or a new Muslim. She says how do you know for sure that Al Quran, Quran is the word of Allah subhanaw taala directly.
First of all the Quran
in this form in my hand, this is most hard from the word scripture, so
but when it's recited, like shoe days, when you recite it, that's real for on.
So don't worry about what's written on the paper.
Although we treasure it very much, we honor it, and give it a special place, no doubt. But what's in the heart, and in the minds of the people who recite this is how it is preserved.
Allah says in the Quran, the meaning
if you are in doubt about it, bring a book like it. If you have a doubt, then just produce a book like it.
And as soon as you try it, you'll realize it's impossible.
In the Arabic language, there's no other document on the planet that compares to it. Even in Arab schools, where the people are not Muslims, they still refer to this is the highest form of the classical Arabic,
But I'll show you a simple test that you can do, I can do, we can all do it easy.
I want you to just take 10 people, just 10 all of them from the same place. Same language, same dialect, same age, make sure you get 10 people very much alike. And then take one of them and tell them a story. Only one page, not 604 pages, only one page, maybe three paragraphs, even teach them that just one person,
then on the same day, as them to go to the second person and tell him until he knows, then let that person go to the next one and tell them and so on and so on until you come to number 10 at the end. Now compare what the one at the end to the one you started with and see if it's even close, will it be close?
Will there even be one word in there the same.
And they're all in the same place at the same time, the same age, the same dialect, everything the same, but in the same day, they could not share that message for 10 people. In fact, if we go back to number five and say what did you have? It's still not gonna match number one, and it will not match number 10. Yes or no?
Yes or no?
So if you understood that, I'm going to ask you Do you understand we don't rely on a piece of paper.
We are relying first on the words coming from the carving the reciter.
And we listen and we repeat and we memorize from him. He got it from his teacher orally,
mouth to ear, and so on and so on and so on back to Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu wasallam
if you understood it's impossible to do 10 people in the same room on the same day in the same language I'm going to ask you
Did you know today the Koran is recited by more than one and a half billion people on the earth today. Exactly the same way.
Wait while I'm not done?
There is no Muslim alive, except they know how to at least say Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim and rbo there is no Muslim living who doesn't know how to save hamdulillah al Amin. There is no Muslim except they can say a Salaam Alaikum. As long as they have ears and mouth they can do that yes or no.
So there should be no doubt in your mind from that. But we'll go one step further. And realize that all 604 pages of it are totally memorized in the minds in the hearts of more than two. Oh, comma old comma old 20 million people memorize the Quran in the original Arabic language and 88% are not Arabic. Al hamdu Lillahi Rabbil aalameen.
And that's just the beginning. Let me tell you where you can go to get the rest of the story, the miracles, the signs, the proofs
Again and again the prophecies in the Quran, go to the website, our laws koran.com a l, l, h s, don't put the apostrophe qu R a n.com. You'll find a lot of information there, including the Quran translations. We have four translations to help you get the meaning in English and reciters. Like the reciters we had here tonight. Thank you for that question. I love that question. Salam Alikum. Shall we have the next question from the other side left?
Salaam Alaikum alaikum Salaam My name is also Yusuf. I'm a sales manager living in UAE for more than 20 years Mashallah. Your name is also use it? That's strange. Why did they call you also? Oh, you mean? Oh, nevermind. Go ahead. Mohammed is?
Exactly let's hear
that I have a question. Being a father of young children, how many three son and one daughter Mashallah.
It's very difficult for in this, you know, times.
These are extraordinary time in my opinion, our children are not feeling
to be proud as a Muslim, because they are mixed up with the many other religion in Dubai here. And also then they go out. So my question is, how quick we can say or how can we make our children proud of our religion and bring energy in their life for prayers and
this very simple question that Allah carries. Together, we are used to find two uses.
First of all, Miss Miller Alhamdulillah wa Salatu, Salam ala. First of all, I too, am a parent. And I have children.
And I'm in the United States. So when it was time to put them in school,
I couldn't imagine I will put my children in that school. That was the first thing, the American public school system. To me it's a toilet. I can't stand it. Because the public school is just so bad. So I put my children in homeschool, and we taught them at home.
But I don't want to go off into that too far. I want to tell you something else.
At the time of the Prophet salaam, salaam, his followers
experienced being outnumbered very much by non Muslims.
But it didn't stop them from practicing as much Islam as they could.
And their children saw that and they had big respect for the parents. Unfortunately, some of us today, we are copying the ways of non Muslims.
And then we wonder why our children act like they do. But the children are seeing us.
They see us we don't even look like Muslims anymore. They see us saying the wrong thing doing the wrong thing.
So then when we tell them do the right thing, they can't, they just can't it doesn't make any sense. Like a man who says,
Don't smoke. It's really bad.
It's really bad.
It's like, do this what will happen? My children will grow up smoking and telling their children don't smoke.
That's all it'll happen. So they will do what we do. They don't hear you, they see you. So try your best in everything you do. And your family does in front of the children and always to do what is real Islam.
And insist that your children are with you as much as you can be with them. Do not spend your time with extra jobs make extra money, because all that extra stuff is keeping you away from them. And you basically are selling your children to shut down for every hour extra that you work thinking, Oh, I'll make more money. I'll give them a bigger house. I'll give them a new PlayStation. I'll give them some new Gameboy. I'll give them a new telephone all the time you're away from them. shaitaan is taking them further away from Islam. Your time is what they need. Nothing else. Your time. They don't want your money. They don't want the toys. They want your time. Spend time with them. Good
time quality time. recite your Quran to them in the morning.
I spent every morning with my daughters. I had two daughters at home. When I came to Islam, the children were grown by them. Every morning we would get up and do select the pleasure. And then we would take out the Koran and we would start reciting and imagine I can't even say the Arabic words correctly. Even now I have a lot of trouble pronouncing words. But we still did it anyway.
Today, I'm very happy when my granddaughter
Who is now living in Saudi Arabia is talking to me on the telephone. She just
she is turned three years old. She was one of the things I wanted to go to Saudi to see, but I didn't get to see her.
Three years old, and I listened to her reciting the Quran on the telephone.
Oh my God is so beautiful.
Your time brother, spend your time with your children. Spend it with the Koran, and say, you know, read out the Salah him.
Just read some Hadith to them in the evening. And then talk about these things in life that they have a problem with. Listen to them. You don't have to be an expert in anything to listen, just listen, let them finish. Don't interrupt them. They will love you so much, because they're looking for somebody who cares. This is why these children go away from their parents. Why did children go to the streets? Why did they go to drugs, alcohol, they go to those things because they want something they don't know what they want. But I'm gonna tell you what they need. They need you. They need you to show them Islam. Show them the way to a law. And you can do that. Because that's what
alumnado is for example of hair use. Thank you love that question.
The next question from the brother side on the mic number two.
salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. slama. Chef Yusuf
Shaykh Abdur Rahim green and shape hussaini all of you are truly inspirations to us. In the field of Dawa, you have made us really proud of our own religion.
I pray to Allah that you and your children and their children and their children tilaka deeply rewarded for this fantastic work you're doing?
My name is Ahmed.
I'm an engineer by profession. You have all inspired us to do a bit of Dawa
in our own little way, whatever we can.
Whenever I try this on my Christian Brothers and sisters, and I explained to them the mistakes in the Bible, the untruth, which they follow
the untruth, which they believe about our beloved
is Allah Salaam.
They finally they come after, after seeing all these mistakes, they finally tell us that it's their choice is a choice which they have made. Then I say, I quote the parent telling them that there is of course no compulsion in religion.
Immediately, they call us hypocrites. Because they say that once a Muslim leaves his religion
you call it blasphemy. And sometimes you even
condemn him to death. But I understand that you're placing a scenario but it is good day we put the question to the ship. I'm sure you will understand you. How do I answer this question? He was coming to that. Yeah, shake before I just and I just wanted to add one more thing. My wife is one of your biggest fans. Sometimes I get jealous about it.
I'm the law.
Teller, big salami. She here. She's here with my daughter. She's here in the building. Yes, she is sitting behind Salaam Alaikum. Sisters. Okay, thank you, brother. We really appreciate that. Before I answer your question, something came in my mind about uses question about the children. I forgot to say this, I always say about this subject. So in Islam, we learn a valuable lesson about children.
how you treat your parents, Allah will give you children just like that. So remember, while you're raising your children to take care of your parents, the parents are very important. Let's come back now to the question. The subject here is often misunderstood for on several levels.
Allah He Manisha Tony regime.
La Rojas the dean.
This is not the ayah
this is only a few words in the beginning of the ayah.
And when you only quote a few of the words, people will take it out of context which they often do. One of the things that people will say, who are not in Islam is what you said.
There's no compulsion in religion so why can't I leave?
Inside the religion. There are Muslims also who don't understand. A sister will say I don't wear who job. Law a prophet Nene. Some brothers say I don't pray.
La agrahara Dean somebody maybe they don't fast they don't want to do Hodge. They say live Rafa Dean, don't tell me about the religion brother. There's no compulsion.
This because they read it out of context. First of all, read all of it. Then understand there's an ayah before it, which is one of the most powerful of the is in the Quran so much so that if you read this ayah in the morning, you're protected from the shed gone through the day and if you read it at night, you're protected from checked on to the night. It's called as to cursing. If you understand the Tafseer of Ayah to Kersey, then it continues. Right after it says well, a Yoda who hit the home Allahu La Liga la de la raha Deen. It's a continuation of what you just heard. It's saying you know who Allah is? and who is not. Now the choice is yours. Do you want this Dean or you don't?
The choice comes on choosing the dean yes or no. If you choose it, there is compulsion on you as a Muslim, but there's no compulsion on a non Muslim to accept Islam. But if you want to call yourself a Muslim, you have to do Islam because they come from the same source as llama. llama is the verb. Whoever doesn't do us llama, he's not in Islam. And he's not a Muslim, though.
If somebody doesn't ever walk, how does he say I'm a walker? If somebody has no tongue, how do you call him a talker? So if somebody doesn't have Islam is not a Muslim. Yes or no?
Yeah, it's linguistic Hello. Pay attention. It's as simple as that.
But if you want to be a Muslim, five compulsory things that you have to do Shahada, Salah,
fasting Zika? And yes or no. And you have to believe six things? Not five?
Not four and a half? Six, we believe in the law? Well, malayaka, do you want to be here? Well, recently, and we believe in the Day of Judgment, and we believe in the color of the law.
So if somebody wants to leave any of that out, are they really a Muslim?
So yes, there is for the Muslim very much. He has to follow Islam. But if somebody say I don't want to be a Muslim
choice, it is your choice.
But if you are a Muslim, then realize what goes with it and be responsible and live up to what it teaches. And if somebody doesn't want to be a Muslim anymore, they can do it silently, and just go away. But they want to stand there and say, I used to be a Muslim, and now I'm a whatever.
They're calling people away from the truth. And obviously, that's a problem. So this will cause problems in the community. And if somebody is taking from the Muslim community,
taking the rights that we give to a Muslim,
and then they go like this, this is very, very hypocritical. So these are things that we have to know about.
didn't bring any note is supposed to bring a note said you only have three minutes left.
I love it. By the way. I was gonna tell up green green, this one, when they bring you that note that says you have three minutes, you know, yes, recording you get to write, when they bring it to you next time I open it up and do what I do I go, it says share, why do you look so cute on TV? To do that, I love that it was a very good chance to talk on this subject. Very much. Thank you. Next question. And just before that, for the brothers who are interested in Dawa and such we have an International Exhibition with more than 250 panels, those which you have a lot of information, and which are very thought provoking. And for all of those who want to take this opportunity. We suggest
that you bring more and more of your non Muslim friends here to this exhibition, which will enlighten them about the knowledge of Islam inshallah. Yeah, take advantage, there's a good chance. And if you get home, and you say gee whiz, I wish I had some more dour. Go to the internet. doubtless cd.com that's our da w h cd.com. We send out free download CDs around the world. And also we have DVDs But anyway,
check it out. If he's gonna stick a commercial I am to next question.
There's a little child here wants to ask you a question.
You mean when when you say insha Allah
That means into Latin.
Very good question. He says, I was a little girl a little boy, it's a little boy, I thought so little boy, Mashallah. He's asking does inshallah, if I say it? Does that mean it's going to happen?
No, it means
it will happen if the law wants it to happen. But if a lot that won't happen is not going to happen. But either way, we're going to be happy with it. This is the implication is that either way it goes, I'll be okay with it. I don't want to do this inshallah, if a law wants it to happen. I hope I said it the right way. Very good question. Understand the child was on the other side. So do we have a question from the sisters, please? Yes. There's another question here.
This is related to the hadith of alira delanco. In the battlefield, how do we remain steadfast in the face of our enemy? who openly mocked our Prophet sallallahu? wasallam? This question is from a system. Okay. That's a very good question. What do we do when somebody insults our Prophet sallallahu wasallam. The first time it happened to me, I was at George Mason University giving a speech after the speech.
One came up to me is not Muslim. There was an old man, actually. And he was he knows Arabic. And he came in my face. And he said, What do you say about a 53 year old man that has sex with a six year old girl?
Whoa, when he said this, I almost passed out, because I couldn't believe anybody would talk like this, that couldn't believe somebody will say something like this. I know what he meant by what he said, I was so upset. I started taking my coat off. And I'll give it to the chef who was with me. I said, you know, just hold my coat. I'm gonna go on this guy. And as I was taking my coat off, I looked at him. I said, this depends on your question. If it's a rhetorical question, or if you're insulting my Prophet, in which case, I'm going to take you out back and beat your head off your shoulders. He said, No, no, no, no, it's rhetorical. I said, in this case, it doesn't need answer.
Obviously, what he said no Muslim Modi support this idea. Because our prophet SAW snom never would do something like this. Our Prophet did not do what this man said. But the way he said it, people would think, Oh, this is Mohammed.
I prophesied Salaam was the example for us. And he was the mercy to mankind. I had to go to the scholars and ask them, How do I answer the question? They said, first of all, you don't get angry. This is in the Hadith, the resources are not left handed. Somebody said give me Missy, ha.
don't get angry. Take it easy. Keep your cool.
Kid easy. Second thing is when you don't know just say I don't know. But be kind to them. Maybe they will listen to the answer. So the next time I saw the same guy again, I'm ready.
This time, he started with another question. It's nothing but an insult the way he said it. But this time I said, Thank you for asking me about my religion.
He didn't expect that.
He thinks I'm gonna get angry. Not No, I know we shouldn't do that. Thank you for asking me about my religion. And then
say this. As a Muslim, I cannot lie.
As a Muslim, I cannot lie. If I lie, I can go to hell. And
if I don't tell the truth, if I make a mistake, you can check it out anyway, because everything in Islam is preserved. 100% Mamiya the Quran and the Sunnah. We still have it today, as we had it
centuries ago. suits their suits easy. We can find the answer, but by the way, and here it comes. Are you listening?
If while you are listening to my answer, you like the answer so much that you say that's better than what I have. Are you going to be ready to make a move to something better?
He said, yeah.
And then I began to give the answer, first of all, the Heidi's are in Bukhari, and it's two one. It says I she's six years old, and her mother, listen to the Hadeeth. Her mother comes to her and takes her into the house. She's playing in the dirt. A mother takes her into the house to her father.
So far, did you hear the word sex in there? No.
And her father is doing a tradition which is a part of the Arab tradition forever. He's offering his daughter in marriage to his best friend, someone who is a leader.
Someone who is very important to him. And he's saying I want you to marry my daughter.
But then what? She's back outside playing in the dirt, yes or no? No. Where did you hear sex? And I think you've been standing in the checkout line at the grocery store too long looking at the tabloids with that word sex on Oh, that's all you're thinking about. This is not a prophecy. On
the other hand, if she's older, the mother's taking to the Father, the father softener and marriage. And look what it said in the Quran in chapter four, verse 19, very clear tells all you who believe you cannot inherit women against their will. In order for a woman to get married, she has to be old enough to know what's going on and understand it and old enough to have children otherwise she can't get married. It's not a legal marriage in Islam, yes or no.
So what do you think? It gives us the example that even though she was betrothed at early age, they didn't get married until she was old enough. The man standing there going, I didn't know that. I didn't know that. I didn't know that. It happened again, when I was in Chennai, the same subject come up. And I told another one the same way. He said, Really? I said, Yes, but I'm going to ask you a question. everything we know about their marriage is coming to us from her.
Read what she said and think are the 2200 sayings or Hadees. From her, roughly 26 2200. She is saying only what the best things about her husband, Mohammed selfless, yes or no.
And all that she said again and again. She's praising him, loving him caring about him. She talks about when she was young, she used to race with him. And she used to beat him. She said I got older, I got heavy, and then he used to beat me in the races. She used to tease him She played tricks on him. We know from the Quran, some tricks that she played, whoa, watch out.
But still, he was a very caring and loving husband to her so much. So when he died
solarize salaam, he wanted her to be there. He died right there in that house with his head in her lap. And what was the last thing she did? She is a toothpick. And she cleaned it for him and opened it up
and put it in his mouth. Because she knew how much he liked it. And in this way, and then this condition he passed away.
And for the rest of her life, she narrated from him and never said a single bad word ever about her husband. Do you know any women today who could go their whole life and never say something bad about their husband?
Hello. Do you know a woman who can go even one year or one month or one week? Maybe not even one day and she's saying something about her husband?
I should read the Allahu on her never said a single bad word on Roseman. Yes or no.
she never even considered to look at another man for the rest of her life.
In her heart and her mind she is still married to Mohammed Salah Salaam and they will be together in Jenna.
In Jenna in a paradise and live their happily ever after. I'm asking you a simple question. Is this the best love story you ever heard?
Or do you like the story of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet?
On Valentine's Day?
Talking about Oh, what a love story Romeo and Juliet. Two young lovers, one a preteen maybe 12 and 114, something like this very young. from two separate tribes that did not like each other. They hated each other. They were fighting. So the Capulets on the one side, and the other family on the other side and they hate each other. And they don't want their children to even know each other. So they sneak behind their back. Did they get married? No. What did they do? I don't want to mention and then what?
One of them commit suicide.
According to the Jewish religion, Christian religion and Islam, they go to hell.
Compare that to destroy Mohammed and Ayesha. And tell me what you think is really the story
And he said a shed with a local law settlement homeowners.
Just remember this. No matter how harsh the questions come. You have a responsibility to present Islam in the best way. Don't try to be Ottoman deedat or
Don't try to be zakra like, Don't try to be use of SS. Be you Be yourself as the best Muslim you can be well lucky. And I don't like to say we're lucky, because I'm not Arab anyway. But when I say this, I really mean I wish all of us
would just use what Allah gave us and be the best Muslim you can be this would destroy shaytan on this planet, he wouldn't have a chance. May Allah guide us? I mean? I mean, the next question from the read on this mic. Sorry, Mr. Yusuf, this is Mohammed a shark with you? I'm Alec Omarosa, how are you?
My question is that normally, media being so common these days, where you, whatever you see on this part of this world, you can hear it on the other part of the world being so common, what are Why are we not able to convey our message to every non Muslims are there? aka starting from initial like initial people like normal people with non Muslims? We have to begin from initial all the explaining Muslim. What about the people who are with knowledge? We can call like father, who is more knowledgeable than the ordinary people. Normally he's here so you should be running towards us. Why are we not able to make them run towards us? How can we improve ourselves?
When it comes to this subject is sharing this message the risala of Islam,
our prophets, Allah Islam,
he told us, the meaning more or less is did I convey the message? It was like, did I convey the message the people saying Yes. Did I convey the message? Yes.
He's saying it's hoped that the people that hear it today will convey the people to the next people saw and so the ones who hear it at the end will understand it better than the ones who are here today, more or less the meaning.
So we have an injunction. We have an order coming to us from our profit share this message. In the Quran. Allah tells us our attorney regime, contin hire oma to project the NASA top morona bill Morrow, or Chan Helena on human karma to noon in the law. It's in chapter three, verse 110. Anyhow,
for sure the best nation, because they call to our morals, they forbid moon car, and they believe in the law.
It's all part and parcel of the same thing. We must do it. You're right. But how?
Today we have media. It's foolish for us to say, well, the Prophet says mom had a camel or a hammer or a donkey. So I'm gonna go get a donkey. And I'm gonna go down the street and go a la la la la la, la la. We don't need to do that. Right.
So you have a telephone, you know how to send a text message. You have a computer, you know how to send an email.
There are many, many opportunities in front of us that the companions never even dreamed of. You can send a message anywhere in the world right now, right this minute from standing right where you are, yes or no, it's very easy. But what we need to do is work together to be sure we send the right message the right way. At the right time. We have a project called guide us. Now, most people say guide us. But because I'm in the US, I call it guide us guide us TV, this project make up for us, we've already got it on the internet, we've already got the channels there, make do I've got two satellites waiting for us to bring the message up and put it all around the whole world, not just
the US around the world. That's our project that we're working on now. And what's nice is going to be so different from anything you saw before because it has chat on TV. You know, when people call and they have to wait online, you know, it works. Somebody calls, and you have to wait for his call to the next guy to the next guy. And many people give up this new channel we have with the new software as chatting on the television, people can just go to their own little computer, go to our website and type and it will come up. They can actually watch the whole show from their computer and put it down there and we can see what they're saying and answer questions live. I'm preparing some
of our teachers for that right now. Those who are working with us they know about it. Say Reggie is right here. He knows how it works. People can go to our chat room chat Islam and get a sample of it right now. But when we put that on, then anybody and everybody can get on there Muslim, non Muslim and ask their questions, get their answers and ask from our real scholars that will have on there in the English language. inshallah, that's what we're trying to do with that.
But for sure, you're there.
Two rules that we have two very important rules. Actually three, one,
never tried to do it by yourself, go to a real scholar of the area you're interested in and attach yourself to learn from them. number one.
Number two, be with the gym. Don't try to be like, by yourself.
It's not about you, it's not about me, it's about the law. Three, make sure that you add this sixth salon, there are five salons. But when you want to do down really work at it, there's six one in the middle of the night. And you get up and you make wood Oh, and you put on something nice, like you're gonna meet a king or something, you know? And in this way, private, nobody will you and the law.
You know what to do?
For sure, if you keep begging along, and I do it and do it and do it. And guess what? If I really tried to lie and say Allah, I need to see somebody makes Shahada today, so I know you're accepting from me will lock you out of nowhere. Somebody will walk up to me and say, Are you a Muslim? I have a question. 1520 minutes. 30 minutes later, he's saying the shadow of the ball.
This is what we know. That's a look here. Thank you. has a good question, Mohammed.
The next question from the other side on the mic number two.
salaam aleikum. wa rahmatullah.
My name is Martin Potomac. And I'm from South Africa.
currently having a
master's degree in Islamic Studies in English. The question that I'm having here is based on the topic here today, that Islam peace and prosperity, the question is that I'm having
thus, I'm using the letter
B, if I'm not mistaken, I mean, a, from what you've mentioned, Mr. Yusuf, on Ave the way,
the way would be. Rather, let me put it this way. What is the wave for Islam in the western democracies
in terms of us not being Muslim, Arab, so to say, trying to preserve and be Muslims in western countries in western democracies? What will be the way for Islam?
For example, we understand that Islam or the Quran, Radha is transcendental, right? It moves with time. And as Mahmood mamdani will say, his book that the intelligence and the intelligence here, meaning that the intelligence I will be the one that will remain behind, and the intelligence, the the one that will leave, and preached our outside of their own country's own continent. Now, the question that I'm having with you, is that what is the way for Islam in western countries? Right?
Jesus, thank you very much.
I don't worry about those things, though. I'm not as smart as you are. So I don't worry about
that. I just worry about me. When I wake up in the morning, I have a goal. I want to worship the law, the way he wants me to worship Him. And while I'm doing it, I'm gonna go out and just do the best I can with what Allah gave me. And that's something every one of us can do. We don't even have to know what the word transcendental means to be able to give the Dow but you brought a very good question. I would like to share with you how many people here today know about the government of the United States of America, a democracy? If you know about it, raise your hand.
The government of the United States? You heard about it? This is Democracy, yes or no?
Are you still alive? Hello.
There you go. Thank you, even if you don't know what I said.
But in reality, it's a lie. A big, fat lie.
A democracy basically, is when the majority rules, yes or no. That's the basic idea. They're telling you majority rules.
When George Bush got elected, he didn't have the majority.
They said that it was the Electoral College. When you get elected again, he also didn't have the majority. They said Electoral College. Why? Because of our government. Well, what kind of government is that? I'll help you. When we say the Pledge of Allegiance to our flag in America. It says I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the democracy no to the Republic.
For which it's there. So it's not a democracy, it's a republic. So get that out of your notion in right away. That's it's not right. This is not right. But nevermind, that subject, let's go to something else. How do we today as Muslims, present Islam, and we don't even have a true Islamic State with Khalifa on the planet? Yes or no?
Okay, but you can still be a Muslim country,
you can still do your best, and talk to the people where you can. And in some cases, there are some countries that visited.
You can say anything.
But you can still worship Allah.
And Allah will give you the reward.
I'm not trying to say that we can take over the world, I don't want the world. I never did want this world anyway, I want the next world. So I'm not worried about it. If Allah wants us to do something, he'll make a way for us to do it. Let's take advantage of what we have in front of us right now. And if you don't like the leader of your country, if you don't like the government, you have God. How about this? Islam teaches us something.
You don't pray against your leaders, you pray for them.
Even if you don't like he said this, he said that So what? Like your perfect, right, get up in the night and really cry, Oh, Allah, bless our leaders, and make them the best of leaders. And you know what, when you really mean it, and you show it, your leaders will notice, and they will care, it will make a difference. This has happened again and again, throughout history. It's when we're so disobedient ourselves, that we don't deserve a leader who will take care of us. But when you got a leader who does care who is taking care, like this program, right here tonight, you should be making a lot of dua for everybody who helped in any way on this project.
Because this is something big today, very important.
And that dollar that you make a law will reward you and allow will take care of what we want. So let's work together on that. Don't worry about taking over the world alone the world anyway.
We have the next question from the sister side. Salam Alaikum, Polycom Salaam, my name is Irina, I'm an Orthodox Christian. However, I do believe in God in Allah. Then Muhammad is His Messenger and encouraged. My question is about relationship between man and woman. I'm attending Islamic Studies, and we had a discussion. So is it true and correct that if Muslim man is wealthy enough, and has enough money, he can marry up to four females anytime at his wish? Or is there any restrictions and condition his first wife? Can she just been checked it and he should follow?
Thank you, sister. Thank you very much. Thank you for asking me about my religion.
In Islam, we can't lie, we have to tell you the truth. If we did, like you'd catch us anyway, because everything is spelled out real clear. In this book in chapter four, verse three is very clear about this subject. Sir Ansel, chapter four, verse three. And the law says, I'll give you more or less the translation
and marry other women. Well,
wait a minute. And oh,
how do you start a sentence out with and you don't you ever walk up to somebody? And my name is What do you mean? And how do you start with and so it means I have to go to the verse before. Oh, verse two, look at this. For the believers, the believers are being taught what not to do, you have to understand the way this came at the time. The believers were being told don't do what you used to do. They used to take the team, the orphans. And if a little girl is orphan, her mother and father are gone, whatever, then what they're going to do. They'll say, this is my wife. They will take a little girl and say, This is my wife. I'm taking this girl.
Why? Because they want the money, the wealth, not about sex. Come on, get that. But they wanted to do that. So a lot said don't take it and don't mix their money with your money, saying you're gonna help them when you're really increasing yourself, yes or no? The right. Then it said married other women.
Marry other women, not those orphan girls to get their money, marry other women. It's the latter out of 234 and all
Ready? This was a shock. Nobody ever told the Arabs they had any limit before. They were like, Oh,
what? What do you mean? Tell me how many wives I can have when you want to be a Muslim? If you do, there's a limit. It's never happened before. They could have 1000 wives, nobody said anything. By the way, go look in your Bible. See how many wives to the man had
a lot more than four.
Even I asked one of the Catholic sisters,
about being married. They said, the nuns cannot get married. I said, Why? They said they're married to God. I said all of them.
have a problem with me.
But nevermind that.
So another subject.
But it says for and that's the maximum. So some companions of Mohammed, they had to divorce their wives. They didn't say, Oh, look, we can go get bad wives. Nobody ever said something like that before? Yes or no? Hello? Yes or no?
Then it says another limit. So you asked about limits your hearing limits all over the place. Don't take the orphans, kids money, don't marry these little girls that are not old enough to get married. Don't marry women against their will chapter four, verse 19. Don't marry more than four. And it gave me it didn't say, like I said it said 234. Why did it say 234? Because 234. If now it has a condition and other limit. You can treat them all? Fairly. Otherwise. And here comes the biggest point marry only one.
Yes or no?
No, no, no, no, no, no, no.
I just want to make a point about this. Because there's another the bigger point for you is this.
If a man
feels strong urges, and the woman just doesn't like that. And we're talking about intimacy.
In our society in the West, he simply goes to a prostitute, a mistress. Some of them even rape an innocent girl, because they have this desire. And the wife is telling them stay away from me. Yes or no?
Every 60 seconds in the United States. 43 seconds actually now, every 43 seconds a woman in the United States is sexually abused.
Most of them, most of them by their own brothers and fathers.
Islam is providing something very clean and legitimate and upfront.
If the man is going to have a relationship with another woman, it has to be a legitimate relationship with a marriage, a piece of paper that says that he's married and he's responsible for her. And she's the legitimate wife, not an illegitimate mistress have an illegitimate children. The children have full rights from either marriage, and no Hanky Panky at all. Islam forbids Hanky Panky. No.
It's very serious crime in Islam, yes or no? Very serious crime. So if a man takes another wife, and he doesn't have to be rich to do it, I don't know who told you that. And he doesn't have to take his wife's permission to do it. I don't know who told you that. But I will tell you this. If he doesn't tell her about it. If he doesn't talk to her about it. And she doesn't agree with it. He's gonna have problems. That's as simple as that.
Because there is nothing it'll make a man more crazy than his wife being against him.
And hamdulillah my wife
solved my problem on this subject from the very beginning. Dear sister, I want you to listen. And I'm very happy. She told me you can have four wives because this lamb said you can have four wives. And I care more about Islam than I do my own feelings. No problem. I said Really? said yes. And one woman from Texas is equal to four from anywhere else.
Seriously? Oh, sister. Are you there? I can't see. Are you there?
She's still there. Yes. Okay. You said you believe in the law. Is that true? Yes. Is the law one or three?
Is God one or three?
Are you sure? Yes.
Do you have any doubts about Allah being one God?
I agree with you. This subject is far more important than anything about wives. Because if you really believe in God, and you really want to do what he wants you to do, when you get to paradise, you're gonna have anything you want anything and everything you ever dreamed, and even more, and Allah will give you the best palace you ever saw. He will give you the best kind of house or Palace in the agenda because sister you will never have to clean it. You'll never have to take care of it alone will make sure that everything you like you've got it all. Is this what you want?
Is this what you want?
Do you believe in Muhammad as a real prophet of law? Yes. Do you believe in the miracle birth of Jesus? Yes. So do we. Do you believe that Jesus will come back in the last day? Yes. So do we. Do you believe that Jesus is a human being born to a woman? Yes or no?
Jesus is born to a woman Yes or no? Yes. Yes. That's what we believe. Do you believe he is really the prophet prophesied in the Old Testament? The Messiah? Do you believe in him as the Messiah?
Yes. So do we? He's Isa, the Messiah in the Miriam.
So do you believe in Adam as the first man? Yes. Is Adam a miracle in creation? He has no mother. No, father? Yes. But we don't worship Adam, do we?
Okay, and how he is a bone coming from Adam. And she has no mother. Is that true?
And is that a miracle?
But we don't worship her either doing?
So do you worship Jesus or the God that Jesus worshipped?
and believe in God, do you believe? Yes, Jesus said, according to your Bible, that no oh Israel, the Lord your God is One Lord, and you have to worship for love Him with all your heart and all your mind and all your strength? Do you believe that?
in mind, our beliefs, we believe that there are three names saying God, Father, God, Son, and God spirit, this is the main difference. Maybe I could not answer. That's the belief of the church. But I didn't ask you what they believe. I know, I know, even when they came up with that in the year 325 ad, that's when that became popular. Never before that, but that's beside the point. I'm just asking you what you believe. If you really believe there's only one God, and he's all powerful, and you know, and I know that Jesus is not God.
But he did have a special message of God elevated him so much that he's with God. Now he'll be in the last day coming back to us as a human. You believe that? Yes. If you believe that there's really one God, do you really want to do what he wants you to do?
That's what Islam means. Let me share with you a word and I'll be finished for tonight. This is the last one. So I'll just take a minute for you.
Islam has five words in English. If you don't have these five words who don't have Islam, the first word is surrender.
to totally surrender. Now we're getting good at that Muslims are good at surrender. We do that in Afghanistan, Iraq, you know, who've given up all the time. But the second word is submission, total submission.
The third word is obey, to obey a law and what he says
the fourth word is so important. It has to be sincere. At last, we have to have sincerity.
If we're not sincere, it doesn't work. This proves that nobody can be forced into Islam, because it has to be sincere from the heart. And number four, is the peace the Salaam that comes because no matter what if I do the other four, if I surrender to a law, I obey Him, I submit to Him and I'm sincere, then no matter what happens if I like it, or if I don't like it either way, I'm going to be patient. I'm going to be in a state of
peace. Is this what you're looking for? This kind of peace?
I'm looking for is very much I there's only one step. There's only one step you take when you want to go 1000 miles. There's only one step. It's called the first one.
After that, there's the second one, but you will never go 1000 miles to you take the first step. I had to do this. It was hard for me, but I was preaching Christianity. I was trying to convert a Muslim to go out of Islam.
To the Christian religion, and trust me, a lot of stuff that there's being said, if you ask the preacher they cannot prove it. They're stuck. They avoid the question. So you just have faith have faith.
Many of them even know the corruption that's there. They Bible has been corrupted. They know a lot of the things, but I'm not interested in this subject. I'm only interested in one thing right now. Your first step.
Sister, what is your mother's first name? My mom name is Leila. Your mother's name is Lilia,
would you swear to that? If somebody said is that your mother's name? You say? Yes. I swear.
This my mom name is? Yes. And your father's name? What's his name?
Okay. Would you swear to that?
Yes, yes. So if you swear to who your parents are,
it makes sense. You would swear to who your God is? Do you really believe in the law? Yes or no? Yes. Do you swear? I swear I believe in Allah always was and
then the first step is only this. Don't say more than this one step only. Because it's only a law is going to open your mind in your heart, not me. Nothing I say is going to make any difference. It's all on you. Everything is on you. Because between you and him, even though there might be a lot of people here, who cares about them. Just think about yourself right now. Because this is the most important thing that you can do is the very next step. This is the step. Just say after me, I swear.
I swear, there is no god to worship. There is no God, except the law, except that she has no partners. It has no partners. Now that that is the first step. Now do you really believe that Mohammed peace be upon him was telling the truth? That it was a real Prophet, that he brought the same message that Jesus brought that all the prophets brought? Do you believe that? Yes. Do you swear? Yes. Then say the second step. I swear, I saw
that Mohammed, I'm sorry, this is a scene when I supposed to say when I'm stitching when the person is turned to Muslim, right? If you believe it, say it.
I'm under certain way. No. And I came here to ask my question. Maybe in future it will happen. You never know. But right up to you.
I asked you, I'm not trying to trick you. I'm asking you. Are you ready to say what you believe? If you believe he's a prophet, you say that there's a third step, the fourth step, but I'm not interested in those steps. Because I said from the very beginning that I do believe in Allah is the only one God, I don't believe in Quran as his word. And I don't believe in Muhammad is His Messenger, the last one.
Very good. Then you made the statement. Thank you, sister.
hold on, hold on, hold on, hold on.
system. You've done an amazing thing. It's very difficult to beat the devil down. The devil wants people to break the first commandment, the first commandment in the Bible, if you break this commandment, all the other commandments don't matter anymore. Whoever makes a partner with a law. It says in this book, it says in your book, it says in the Bible, the Injeel, the Torah and the Koran. Whoever breaks this commandment, they will never ever go to Paradise, unless they repent of that before they die. The first commandment it says in Exodus chapter 20, very clear, no, oh, Israel. Again, just let you heard in the other part in the New Testament, and that this is the God the Lord
that brought you out of the house of bondage, the land of Egypt, you know, no God beside me. Beside me, there's no other God, Thou shalt not have any other gods beside me. There are no Gods beside Allah. Jesus is not a god. The Holy Spirit is none other than jabril the angel Gabriel he is the real kudos. That's what the Quran says. Many people tampered with the Bible over the years, we don't have the original anymore. But we do have the Quran in the original form. This is how we know for sure that it's a last word, and he's telling us clearly tell the Christians don't say three, that would be better for you. So from now on, the next thing is take each step as you come to it. But
from now on when people tried to tell you to say three, you don't have to resolve the issue. allows one is simple. We don't have to explain it. One is one. Everybody knows this one God, even Jesus peace be upon him. He is telling people
He did what God ordered him to do. So it can't be God. One final thing before we leave the subject. I asked some girls who came to our house, they were trying to convert us to become
Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, Mormons, and they were telling my daughter, so I asked him a question. I said, I listened to you now for 30 minutes. I want to ask you a question. only ask a question. They said, We didn't come to argue. I said, No, it's a question. Did Jesus pray?
They said, Yes. He prayed. Did he pray and get 70? Yes, he prayed. Did he teach his powers how to pray? Yes. They prayed. Did he pray? Yes. He prayed. Then I said
to him, did he pray?
The girl took the other girl by the arm. She said, we have to go, we have to go. We have to go.
I said Why? I asked you a question. No, we didn't come down. We have to go. We have to go. I'm not arguing I'm asking you if he prayed to who? Because it became clear to the girl that she was teaching. Because the Girls Gone. Wait a minute. That makes sense. What about Islam? No, no, no, no, no, we have to go, we have to go. We have to go. And she took her away. Just like this.
I'm not trying to play a trick on you. I won't embarrass you and ask you anything like this. I'm just asking you to think.
Because the devil knows. She knows that if you stay on the belief that you stated tonight.
There's a very strong chance he's lost you. He's lost all hope for taking you to hell. Because if you really believe in the law, and His Messenger, Muhammad says long, a lot he'll guide you. But you must do this one last step.
Every day, I keep saying what I said almost 20 years ago, I put my head on the ground.
And I said, Oh God, if you're there, guide me.
