This Villa Honda dinner with Samantha Salama Suba while he was a big shareholder law, what I shared with Mohammed in my body was salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
That's how you can come up with I came all the way halfway around the world.
Let's wait. Mr. Bush says America. I come all the way from. Don't make fun of the boy boy sugar. I came all the way around halfway around the world from America.
And I give you a set our Malebo. mahmudullah and what are you doing back?
nerd show me what's Bangalore made out of? Let me hear you.
Okay, okay. Okay. Take it easy, man. Whoa, that's healthy loans, man. I'm doing a question for you. How come half the seats are empty? What's going on? Did you not know you're supposed to bring people here to learn about Islam? I forgot to tell you what, let's do inventory real quick. How many here are not Muslim? yet? Raise your hand. You see how I left the positive thinking open? How many are not Muslim yet? Raise your hand.
One. Only one? Where was two?
How you doing? Okay, how many are Muslim? yet? Oh, by the way, to our non Muslim guests. How do you like being surrounded by all these terrorists? Oh, sorry. And I
can't believe you said that, you know, anyhow, this user best is the National Muslim chaplain in the United States of America. And we've got a program that we do, it's called a slam tomorrow. And it certainly that's expressing a hope of a better life for all of us. We'll talk about tomorrow, the future is something good. So I like that name is slammed tomorrow. But then on the other hand, we do a lot of recordings, and we broadcast them later. And so what you're watching is really not tomorrow is yesterday. So we have another website called Islam yesterday.com. And that's where we put all the audios and videos. But then for those who are saying like, Well, wait a minute.
I think Islam is a little bit more inclusive than that. We also have Islam always.com. How about that? So we got it. All.
Right. Anyway, we came here tonight to talk on the subject of science, science. Why would a religion be talking about science? We were asked that question. Why, for our non Muslim guest, by the way, you are most welcome. And we're happy and thankful to Allah that He let you come be with us.
You don't realize how much we want more people to come and learn about Islam.
Earlier, Dr. Jeffery Idris was speaking on one of my favorite subjects. They called by another title, but whenever I give it, I take all the what they say.
And I bring it down where people, little people like me can understand it in simple terms. So that whenever you ask me a question, I try to do it in commercial time. Commercial time is 30 seconds. Not 30 minutes, okay. In 30 seconds on TV, they try to sell you a new car, a new house, an investment program, am I right or wrong? I mean, they get it out there really quick. Some of their commercials that they have are weird. They don't even mention the product. They just show you a lady walking by not too much clothes. Yes. Hey, there you go. buy a car from Joe. Was it? But anyhow, I thought because so many people today most people today know it's TV. Right? Everybody has TV. And so
I thought, let's keep everything simple. So the subject is truth and proof.
thing went to sleep. Wake up.
I don't know what happened. But
truth and proof subject, the check was talking on is exactly the same thing that I'm carrying forward with. Only I'm picking up another side of what he said.
You cannot have faith if you don't have any knowledge. And that's what he said.
But I put it in simple terms. Because what happened to me, let me introduce the story a little bit for a gentleman who and I do that? Okay. Let's see what happened. My dad came, I used to preach Christianity. Most of you know that that one of the reasons I'd like to bring me the other ones. I'm a white guy from America. But anyhow, when I give the talks, they want me to mention something about this. There's nothing wrong, really with a person who doesn't know what's wrong, as Shaykh said, when they do know and they don't know anything about it. That's it.
big sin. So when I was in jahleel, ignorance, and I didn't know any better, and I was trying a lot gives credit for that for that person provided as something better comes they accepted. When I met the Muslim that ultimately helped me get to Islam.
I was trying to convert them to Christianity.
When I met him, I was trying to tell him all about Christianity, and I didn't give him a chance to speak whatsoever.
And, Jay, if you have been around the Mormons, you know what I'm talking about? Just Boom, boom, boom, boom, boom, they give it to you. Actually, it's more like Jehovah's Witness. Just, you don't get to say anything. And that's why I was working. Do you believe in God? He said, yeah. Yeah. But do you believe in Abraham? He said, Do you believe in Moses? Do they believe in the Old Testament Bible? He said, Yes, yes. But do you believe in the New Testament? He said, Yes. But do you believe in the name of Jesus?
He said, Yeah, what
I don't know what to say. I thought, Wait a minute, because we were told by other preachers, and I'm not gonna mention names because it'd be wrong if I said, like Jimmy Swaggart, Benny and stuff like that, that'd be wrong, so I'm not going to do it. What?
I got jetlag have slipped, anyhow.
Anyhow, what they told us, they said, moslems don't even believe in God, they worship a black box in the desert, and they kiss the ground five times a day.
That's what they build this.
And I bought it what I know.
When I met this gentleman from Egypt, I was impressed with his character. his demeanor was so nice and sweet. I said, Man, you know, if we make him a Christian, we can make him better than Mother Teresa better than a saint won't make him an angel. Because He's so nice. He so kindly. So generally. So, you know, for three months, I worked beside this guy, and the more I watched him, the more I was impressed, I said, What a great Christian he's gonna make.
By the way, I'm forever the optimist.
And I'm not I'm not exaggerating when I tell you, that happened real quick, in my mind when he hit me with it, though. He said to me, I'll go to your religion. And what? He said, Yeah, I'm ready to be a Christian. I'll go to your religion. If your religion is better than my religion.
I say get the baptismal baby, we're gonna get him ready, we're gonna dunking and we're gonna make him a Christian tonight. Yes, in the water out, you come. elope. He said, but
you'll need proof.
You get my PhD happens to be in theology.
And the first thing you learn is philosophy. That same way, religion or any belief system is, is that it's based on what you believe? A religion is based on faith. And that was your subject faith, right?
It's not based on any kind of proof if you want to talk about proof, what are you talking about? You're talking about science.
Not talking about faith anymore.
He said in my religion, we have both. We have faith.
And we have the science. So we have the proof and the truth. And you put that together and what can you say?
It becomes very clear. It becomes very clear after you look into what Shaykh Jaffer was talking about earlier, that if you know anything at all, and you act on it, that is correct. And as you get more knowledge, you act on that and look at the statement. He told me. If your religion is better than my religion, I'll go to it and I know he was not lying.
Because every Muslim should have that in their heart. You show me something better, a better way to get closer to a law. A better way to guarantee a salvation with Almighty God. Then I'm with you. I'll take it. You got it. I'll go for it provided work. You got to prove it.
I don't want to hear about your dream last night, okay. I don't want to hear about your feeling that you got down in your heart.
Okay, and you get some in your stomach going around and around. Maybe you drink the water over here. I don't know. But I'm telling you. That's not what we're buying. What we're looking for is cold, hard evidence.
Every other religion out there has got to deal with blind faith that lead they got to blindly follow because they don't have any proof.
If they have a proof, we already have this lamb anyway.
But for the sake of argument for those who are not Muslim, and I want to be fair to our guests that are here tonight, I'm going to suppose that
we don't know what's the truth, we're going to search from zero. First and foremost, before you get into any discussion or argument or debate with anybody,
help them to get on the right track. Many times I talked to Christians, even preachers, then I know him personally. And when we get off the record shift, or they call them preacher off the record,
what do you personally believe? You'll be surprised how many times they do not really believe what their own churches teaching.
It's not a joke. I have asked many of them, for instance, Southern Baptist, so and so I won't mention his name. What do you believe? He said, Oh, the church believes this. We believe that we believe this. The church believes this. So what's the distinction? When you say in the church, he said, I don't believe that part.
That's how you preach it is it doesn't matter.
For us as Muslims, it matters a lot what we believe that's what it's all about. Because what we have, as a belief, has to be substantiated with a proof.
Otherwise, we don't move. Consider what Jeff was saying earlier. And I want you to think about this real deep when we talk about belief.
Does the devil he believes that he knows that there is a god yes or no.
If the criterion to go to Paradise is just to say there's a God, he's already got it.
He knows there's god yes or no.
That I'm talking about the devil mentioned in the Old Testament, New Testament. I don't know how many other religions except that there's a double. But if you got a double doesn't see no, there's a God.
So your knowledge of God cannot be salvation, unless it's something you can use and work with.
Does he know he believes? Does he know Allah? His name is alone? Yeah. Does he know that Iran is one with no partners? Duh. He may do odd to ally himself and ask him instead of asking anything else, he asked a lot. Let me take Adam and his children To hell with me. That's his, who did he ask? He didn't go to a rock. He didn't go to a stick or a stone or a bone actually work that into some kind of poetry sticks don't burn something. Anyway, I'm saying, the devil knows there's a God and it is not going to help him on the Day of Judgment.
Oops, this is a wake up call for the Muslims. Because if you thought, hey, my knowledge, I know there's God. I said I learned about that's good enough. I'm going to go
check Jeff are lectured many times on the subject of the Shahada itself. And on our website, here comes a commercial, I can work these in I'm from America. But on our website, Islam tomorrow.com is lm t o mo wrow.com. You'll find that article on there, the nine points of Shahada, and you'll be surprised, because if you don't have all nine of these, maybe you don't have a slam yet. Go check it out. Now, the commercials that were up, go back to the topic, we're talking about the science and the proof in Islam,
science and proof in Islam.
Where's the proof begin? And don't go to the Quran first. And tell them see what the Quran says. Because if I really want to do that, I need to go to the Arabic because Quran is not in any other language except Arabic. Is that true or false?
So if I want to save, see what the Quran says, I gotta go to Arabic Now, can you imagine me walking up to somebody here in India
and start talking to him in Arabic.
Or if I go to somebody in Texas, where I'm from and start talking to them in Arabic, what they're going to do is shut up.
What you're saying,
start at the real beginning.
The real beginning is to ask them, Do you see a creation around you?
Yes or no? And if he goes, No, then you're wasting your time joking about scriptures, aren't you? Because they don't believe
she was talking about. He mentioned the word Kaffir. Do you know what he meant by what he said? He knows it so well. He said they're not doing Cofer.
Or they are doing COVID but they can't do copper. If they don't know what it is.
You know what he meant? How many of you know what COVID really means? It doesn't mean this belief. The word in English cover
cover comes from
Arabic words of Faraj
and they mispronounced the F and make it the V just like in the word of old v o, h. I mean Oh F, I get it right in a minute. Oh f we pronounce it have with the V, right? Would it be of that? We don't say us, we say of
the viola. And so they're saying, cover, cover. Cover, Catherine. Because in Arabic to commit the act, it's an action. It's something you do is a verb. you're digging the ground planting seeds and covering them up. That's what they call a farmer in old Arabic classical language of farmer is called a Kaffir. Because he covers and in the Quran, Allah makes cavada for you, he covers up your sins, because you have repented for them. And the kuthodaw of a law is the same thing. Ally's doing.
But it doesn't mean a lot. disbelieves does it? Duh. It means the word is used here to mean to cover up something,
I get a good, how am I doing?
I already know he'll hit me up, I get it wrong you just did while ago. So be careful. So think about this for a minute. A person isn't really covering something up until they know it's there. And they intentionally do it right.
Now, let's look at some of the proofs that we have. And let's get on with our program. First of all,
if the person doesn't accept that there's a creation, and I'm trying to tell him about what the verses about t tau, you've got the moon, what am I'm wasting my time.
I have to go to a logical place to begin. Look to the universe. And let's start with that look to the universe. The universe is a series of spheres, which are going around in orbits.
Right? around other spheres. Is that true or false? And you can't see this without a telescope. Am I right?
Everybody with me?
Now, let's talk about another creation of a law. The molecules? How many of you know what I'm talking about? molecules? atoms, what we're talking about? Okay. No one said molecules and molecules around spheres Yes or no?
They have part of them the neutron, the electron, the proton? Is it right? And these are spheres going around other spheres in orbits, yes or no? But you can't see this without a microscope. Is that true or false?
So how is it that we are exactly the right size and the right height? on this planet right here that without the optical assistance of a telescope, we do not know what's really happening in the universe. We don't know what it really is. It wasn't until the telescope game that people started figuring it out. Am I right? The same way we didn't know what was the micro universe until we got the microscope that drew who put us at exactly the right size that you can't see either one without this help.
And if you said Well, I don't get it. Hold on.
one step further. And think about this.
When you look to the universe, do you see order? Or do you see chaos?
We just described the universe, the micro and the macro, the universe in all situations, the big and the small of it is orbits of spheres going around other spheres and turning while they do it. Is that true or false?
Is that chaos or organization?
thickness water glass right here, see the water glass? walk outside to the summit and drop it on the ground? What will happen?
Is there anybody here that doesn't know what's going to happen? If I drop that on the ground? It will shatter and Splinter into how many pieces
how many pieces?
You don't know and I don't know which one? No to you drop it. Am I right?
Will it ever fall down in such a way that when it breaks, it'll separate into 10 little small glasses and you can serve Chai or coffee out of it.
Will it ever split exactly in half?
Never. How many of these will I drop until one of them when it falls down? It's going to make two little small glasses. It'll never ever, ever, ever happen in eternity. Is that true or false?
How when you understand that you can't drop this glass
And get anything organized that it? Could you look to the universe and say this came from an exploding rock?
But I'll give you one more one for the road as we say, think about this. If a tornado goes through a junkyard picks all the pieces of metal,
old tires and everything, close it up inside the tornado walls around real fast, and then boom drops it on the ground. Is it a brand new Lexus?
With a motor running?
In a tank that never runs out of gas? You say, Man, are you stupid was that? What are you talking about? If you can't believe that, how can you look to the universe and say there's no creator. Think about it. The first proof has to come to a chick said, You're federal.
The first proof has to come inside of you. I'm gonna stand here and talk all day long. You're gonna hear me because you made it on. I don't get it. I don't get it.
Start at the beginning and be sure they understand. Is there a creator? And if they say no, bring the subject up and begin with your science. Let's simple science.
There must be a creator if there's a creation. That's why they don't want to say there's a creation.
And today, Dr. Fatima Jackson, the anthropologist in Maryland at the college there was on our television show twice in Washington DC. And today, she says the scientists have identified in many cases, the scientists themselves have realized that theory of evolution doesn't work. Because it only works within a species never jumps from another species to another species. Therefore, these highfalutin PhDs, by the way shaky know what Ph. D stands for in Texas.
piled higher and deeper, but I don't know what that means. Anyhow, to come back to our subject. She told us Dr. Fatima Jackson told us that these anthropologists should be more like apologists for leading people down the wrong way for so many years and misguiding people, misinforming people. One of the things that she mentioned was, have you heard about Neanderthal man? Have you heard about CRO Magnon man,
etc, all of these different so called man and how one evolved to the other. She said, Today we know they all existed at exactly the same time. Those periods mean that there were more of one than another, but they never evolved into each other. So some of these top scientists today have realized there's a creator, but they're scared to say it, you know what they're using, go on the internet, do google.com and check it out. They call it intelligent design.
Intelligent Design ID. It's called ID. Some of the scientists are very angry with them and they're calling them Kaffirs.
Saying that they're covering something up, and they're, they're showing it this is their drones.
There is a god.
There really is a real God.
So if you already know that you're on the right course. When a Hindu tells me he believes in God, I go, Hey, great. And when a Hindu, like the one who rode with me on the airplane from Mumbai, used to be Bombay, they didn't like the bombs they made at home anyway.
If I knew he was gonna laugh that loud or told that earlier, anyhow, when we were over here to Bangalore, he told me,
there's only one God, I said, Really? He said, Yes. There is no other God with God. There's just God. That can only be that way. He's telling me, you want me to argue with him? No, that's what I believe.
But what do we believe about the God and this is why you need the proof.
For him, he's going on faith. For me, I've got proof, because I know how to look at it.
Now, I know a lot of you thought we were gonna sit around here and talk about the miracles in the Quran tonight. That's a job for Greek scholars, not little guy like me. What I'll do is tell you what we did. We took these evidences from the Quran and we put it in English terms on our websites. And then tomorrow that comes he has sneaked those commercials right in there again, I
have in Texas, we don't care.
Anyway, when you go there and see the scientific evidence, yes, the grant has a lot of science in it. But that's not where I'm going to start. I want them to start with their own head so that when they read the Quran, their hearts will be open to this message. Nobody knew 1400 years ago, that the human being is formed, like a leech, like cut a blood
Hanging inside of the womb of the mother cleaning to the wall of the uterus, and it's in Arabic called Allah.
The human being is created from what Allah
and the first words of Quran are teaching us about the the first words that came to the process.
Again, you probably thought I was going to get up here and tell you like so many people tell you, the Quran says read and that's why we have to science we have to study we have to be educated because the Lord told us to read. I don't agree with that.
The first word came in the Quran ikura a para means word.
How did you know that? You get some smart people in India.
All the people in my country are not saying I just say it means really, brother. That's why we have to go get a PhD.
But who did this word come to? It came to Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam?
Yes or no.
And he was being ordered to do this thing he was commanded It was a armor of a loss upon with don't do it, a command of Allah do it. And the angel told him
and he said,
And their Angel grabbed him again and pressed him to his chest and released him and he said, if at all,
not on the record. And he grabbed him again and squeezed him and let him go. And he said, I've got all this neuropsychological of all upon in Santa men. Allah
recite, not read. Because the prophet SAW someone told him, I don't know how to read. I'm illiterate. I don't do that. I don't know how. So it was clear. It didn't mean that don't give meaning to the Quran. It's not there. You and I and all of us are going to suffer from that. here and in the hereafter don't do it. We know Islam wants you to be educated. Okay, but don't say that this is said that it ordered him to recite.
In the Name of your Lord, who created mankind created him from an unlock elite slight clot of blood.
And who knew that, that many years ago, Dr. Keith Moore, the top embryologist in the world possibly. And certainly in Canada, Toronto, Canada, where he's from, learned about this and he himself said it's not my website, another commercial coming up Islam tomorrow.com go there and watch the video. And he said they're just like, I'm sitting here tonight. And he said it is not possible for somebody at the time of Mohammed. You have something like it's in his Coram he said Quran instead of Quran. He said, It's not possible. So therefore this has to be from Allah, or some God.
He said it.
And Dr. Maurice mukai, the famous surgeon
from France, lecturer and author, and when he was called to go to Egypt,
I'm going to end with this one, by the way, because I'm getting tired. But I want to tell you this one, because when I heard this one, I want to cry. I want to cry want to hear this? Because it's the most fantastic miracle ever heard of? Because every prophet should be able to prophesy. Usually. I mean, in fact, always when we want prophecy, we want to know what's going to happen in the future. Am I right or wrong?
Because if I prophesied of you who won the game last week, that's not prophecy.
Is it? No, I just go to the DB and say, Okay, this happened. That's history.
But the Prophet sallallahu alayhi Salaam was sent with the message for all mankind for all times, and he prophesied the past, connected it with the future with something nobody could have said would happen. And who discovered it was Dr. Maurice Bohai, not a Muslim. He later became a Muslim.
But when he was called into Cairo, Egypt, to examine the corpse of a mummy
that came from one of those big pyramids
he was amazed he said, This Pharaoh drowned he died of asphyxiation, his lungs didn't work anymore. This man I believe, drowned. Then he says, this could be the Pharaoh of Moses time. And he was so excited. But guess what?
The people around him went, so Okay, that's cool. He's going, God. Yeah. Because you know, he's a Christian. And he's telling these guys that, you know, you're obviously Muslims, you don't know. They're saying, No, we're Muslim, and we do know, it's in the Quran. He said, Hmm.
Because in the Quran, Allah Subhana Allah talks about when Pharaoh was drowning.
Now this is the same Pharaoh that received so many proofs, so many signs, and he covered them up. afterwards. He knew and then he lied, which made him What? What he covered the truth is or what? Oh.
And when he died, he was drowning yes or no. A lot drowned him in the Red Sea. His last words was, I believe,
in the lord of Moses.
Did that help him?
Take note, my dear brothers and sisters in Islam, you're claiming to believe in the law at the time of death is not going to be any benefit. If you didn't live it in your life.
That's a reminder to all of us. This is serious.
He died. Some Christians, some Jews today, doubt that I've read some scholarly works from people who deal with the manuscripts from the Old Testament.
It was in recent, I believe it was Newsweek had an article about the Bible in it. And it stated in there from some of their top scholars, they don't really believe the story of Moses, not really not really, you know, like a man can open up the sea and they can go through it. And Pharaoh drowned. They don't believe it.
But Allah says about Thoreau, after he drowns liquid Allah says, and we're going to preserve you in your body as a sign for the people that say that or not.
And guess what?
After they discovered this good, they put the mummy on display and take him all over the world or not. And guess what? I saw him. I saw him. Right in my country. They had him in Dallas, Texas, they had him up in Chicago, and they put it on and you can't get too close. You know, they get the thing. The last thing, you can go out there and look at him, got his mouth open like this.
I wonder what he was saying?
Or maybe I don't have to wonder.
The same thing that an atheist will say, if he fell out of an airplane,
all of his life he plans I don't even anything. I don't believe in anything. I don't believe in nothing. That's it. But if he fell out of an airplane, what would he say? Well,
he's not gonna say, oh,
So start with the basic science First, you want more help with that? Then go to our website, Islam tomorrow.com. And pick it up from there. We have tapes that deal with the subject of the Quran and the miracles there. But considered this one that I just told you think about it real hard? How could somebody 1400 years ago, predict what happened in the past 2000 years before him, and that in the future that would be proven something from the past will be proven in the future. And I never heard any other prophecy to beat that one.
From any religion. he prophesied for sure that happened and the sign will come in the future. And we've had that sign in the early 1970s. And what have we done about it? Sign after sign after sign prophesize when I'm talking to us about and people walking away going on, I don't know if I believe in Hades. And that's one of the signs that the Prophet salallahu alaihe salam talked about in the last day there'll be people who will reject that idea and only take the Quran Am I right?
Hello, hello, hello. And everybody in this room, I'm sure you know somebody who has said I don't take those if I didn't get I don't know about that. But I take the car on. Am I right or wrong?
Yes, what time it is. Look on the clock, while us in Santa's lap he hosts in Medina. ammonoosuc Emmylou Salah, hottie water was so berhak wasabi Subhan Allah said in the Quran, that he swears, and only he can swear by the passage of time, the every single human being that he created, in known insan all of the human beings lucky horse are going to be in the Hellfire on the Day of Judgment, they're going to go to hell, except for those who come to the correct inand in a law not believe in man no law.
No doubt in it. You know, there is a law and you do something about it, to learn so build muscle muscle. First you have to do the Amazon had the deeds of righteousness and then encouraging exhort each other to be the same thing called the people to the right way and remind each other to be steadfast and persevering. And I didn't use the word patient because it means so much more than that. That's enough speech for me tonight it with us do let's all get some rest. Come back tomorrow and kick it off again. What do you think? Okay, let's do that. You can go to my website, slam tomorrow.com Islam yesterday.
Calm, Islam always come and pick up more than tomorrow inshallah we got a workshop. Some of you were with me today at 430. Right? How many were with me today at 430.
And we agreed that if everybody wanted to do it, we do it. Well, they gave me the paper, they said we are going to do it. And number six, the same one we were in today, right?
But I don't want you to come
in unless you're going to bring somebody with you.
Because you already heard me talking.
Then I don't want you to come for me. I want you to come along. So bring somebody with you tomorrow and fill this place up. Look at this price. What is this? I can have it go to the flea market and sell off half these chairs over here make some money go out and bring some people not Muslim.

Got me. Because if you feel this place up tomorrow, if Allah fills it up, but you help, or you get me, then I tell you what we'll do, we'll arrange a special program, a special program. And I'll come back over here very soon. And we'll do something that really will help all of us. But if I don't see any thing from your side, I'm going to stay home. Because I got plenty of people over there that don't know anything about Islam, they want to know. Okay, so let's get to work. Bring these folks in here, fill up these chairs, please,
is my humble request umbrella number.
I want to close out my little talk by saying that
I'm very nervous, by the way, not in front of crowds. I like that. But I'm nervous to sit in front of my shift and talk because
check for got more knowledge about Islam than I'm ever going to know.
But I think it's important for us, as Muslims to realize a very vital part of knowledge in Islam. If you cannot show respect, and honor
to the one that Allah sends you with this message in this knowledge, then you don't deserve it.
I know that all of our scholars have made mistakes,
I have no doubt about that.
In fact, I make more mistakes than any of them. I don't claim to be any scholar. But I'm gonna ask the chef, I'm gonna put him on the spot chef, have you ever made any mistakes?
Several emitted more than one already.
I'm saying for me already in this speech, probably too many.
But that's not the criterion to show respect.
The fact that somebody dedicates their life to get correct Islamic knowledge, and then dedicate their life to impart that on other people, is a great sign for you to at least admire that about the person, even if you don't agree with what they say.
But if you don't show the respect for the knowledge, Allah can take it away from you like that.
So let's all of us make a commitment in the future. Regardless of what our scholars or shifts are malanez say and I know they make mistakes, trust me,
we still have to show them respect. And we have to give them courtesy. And we have to pray for somebody, even when you have a leader of your country.
And you said Oh, he's not a good Muslim, he did this. He did that. So and so and so and so. In Islam, it's not correct for you to curse him to other people. What's correct is to tell him
to tell him in a kind way, and mentioned the handsome good things that he did. I'm sure you must have done something good.
And then mentioned to them what you consider to be the mistake. That's all it's allowed, except for what
may be the most important thing of all,
the Hadith of the Prophet salallahu Salam is clear. When he told us that when you see a moon car, you have to stop it by your hand. And if you can't do that, you stop it by your tongue. And if you can't do that, you have to hate it in all your heart. And this is the weakest.
I've heard this head it's so misrepresented that I want to run away from the people saying First of all, the word munkar doesn't mean just anything. As we already discussed earlier when Allah uses the term in the in the Quran, Clinton
Hiring, omitting or rejecting the NASA taumarunui Bill maruf. What an honor on one car. But to know that it doesn't just mean something bad, because otherwise it would not put the belief in the law. What took me nonetheless, in second place, the moon card the professor salon was talking about alcoholism is the things that take people away from Islam. And when you see the things that are taking the people from Islam, use your hand to stop those things. But it doesn't mean to slap the people around. It doesn't mean to strap a bomb on yourself and blow people up. What it means is using your hand for something good to make something happen. Have you used your hand to dial the
telephone to ask anybody to come over here tonight?
Did you use your hand to distribute any leaflets out to the people that asked him to come to the program? Then No, come and tell me this video.
And when it says stop by your tongue, it doesn't mean to curse people. It means to praise the good of what people are having get them to come and see how to do for good for the Hindu gentleman that I wrote over here with on the airplane. I wish he was here tonight.
Because I would tell him I love what you said on the plane. You said there's only one God, I love that. You said there's nobody to worship except Him alone. I love that. And I hope you learn more about what we believe. And we can share because all of us are brothers in humanity. I want us to be brothers and faith too. And we can do that as long as we do what I said in the beginning.
Be willing to go to something better when you see the proof chellamma and with that, we'll pick up where I left off tomorrow at the program in sha Allah, Be there or be square. I'm looking forward to meeting everybody tomorrow. In the meantime, Islam tomorrow.com is lm t om owrow.com. We're open 24 hours a day. And there's always plenty of free parking.
That should appeal to you here in Bangalore, Salaam Alaikum.
Now we have a q&a session.
My question is to Dr. Jeffery sashays.
You said in your speech that
when we read the more, the more we understand the Quran, and with our advisor, we understand the message more and we have the criterion to judge.
But how is it that in today's time when we are working,
our work is so much money. In today's corporates, we have to work from morning nine to nine, we hardly get time for Ava and for so much understanding of the Quran which is actually quite an it makes a difference. So, what do you how do you really
understand that? Is it allowed for us to work when it actually contradicts with our
our DNA, if we have to get developing better ourselves, and it comes in this way? So are we supposed to work at such a pace?
Of course you must work and but rabada is not judged by the amount. The amount is just judged by its quality by sincerity. Many people who came after the companions of the Prophet said to each other, perhaps we pray more than the companions of the Prophet.
Perhaps we did more fasting, perhaps we restarted perhaps more than they did. But they still they were better than us. Why? They said because of something that resided in their hearts, they say in our office and the prophets are seldom said there can be two persons in the same line of salah and the difference between the reward
but the difference between them would be like heaven and earth and they are in the same line and perhaps both of them
have an accepted Salah. So so if you are sincere, try as much as you can to be sincere and you don't have to stop work to worship Allah subhanaw taala
There are many ways of the important thing is to do the the the obligatory thing you pray for five praise you first and so on. But while you are working, you asked you need to do your own work. There is a difficulty you turn to Allah subhanaw taala you ask him that is a bad you make is too far.
You have someone so there are many ways of worshipping Allah subhanaw taala. But again, I must say
no wise person would
spend all his or her time just doing manual work.
Even a non Muslim would do they wouldn't do this. So you have to be
to be moderate, sharp.
I was going to say something also about comment on what you said about knowledge.
someone can be more knowledgeable than another person as far as the information he has. But that first doesn't mean
that he understands what he knows by heart better than other person.
The Prophet size, used to encourage people to convey whatever knowledge they have been the one who will convey an eye even if you don't know more than an eye. And then he gives the reason for this. He said, Obama, in our center, perhaps the person to whom you convey the verse will understand it better than you do.
So this is one reason another reason I, I know this from my my experience, that
you might not be the best person in conveying knowledge, someone hears something from you. And he goes and conveys in a better way than you do.
I know of some great aroma, real aroma, if they talk,
you become drowsy or asleep.
But when you come and ask them questions, you see how they are someone, here's what they said, what they say. And he goes and conveys it in a better way than they did. This also applies to writing, someone writes something, which is very important, very useful, but he writes it in a difficult way. Someone else understands what he said, and then goes and conveys it in a better way, then this applies to religious knowledge and to also worth the knowledge that by the way,
tell the students also, it's better not confine yourself to one textbook.
You might find that textbook that that you understand more they both of them, three of them, four of them, they say the same thing. But one of them says it in a way that appeals to you more than another way that is why it is better to have more than one book on the same on the same topic. Now.
We have these programs organized for the citizens of Bangalore life brother used to say it is a duty honor for all of you all to bring more and more of your friends from other faiths, we have designed these programs for them, we give preference to them, we have one coming up this Sunday in sha Allah, where we have non Muslim guests who will be coming here to ask a question. So every one of you take an effort, this is
an act of ibadah why we will get a reward, inshallah, you have to see to that because we have organizing this even for the Bangalore public, for them to gain knowledge. It is doesn't come every time. So you have to grab the opportunity and take the knowledge being imparted in this even in Sharla salako. My question is to bridge the use of
that long back about eight years back in 1996, one brother from Christianity tried to convert me into Christianity. That was a time when I was not really affected with Islam and I was a Muslim, but I was not very much enthousiastic toward this that time to prevent myself. I started studying Islam. And I think the best defense started studying Christianity as well as Hinduism. When I started talking to him, all his enthusiasm vanished and then used to bring a lot of sweets and fruits and all that also stop under he he fled look like better than I thought the attorney wrong with my approach award. But I lost all the control to talking to him. And he also fled umbrella. I continued
my enthusiasm, but I lost his contract. So I think how to do this thing.
Why do static people fly away when they start hacking? We take a stance sounds to me like you answered your own question.
No, I must think that whatever
You have been in Christianity long back. So you can tell us what the thing actually what they expect from us for 30. Tomorrow, for 30 tomorrow, the hosts of this gonna be there for 30 tomorrow and you'll be there. How many will come tomorrow to hear the answer to this question,
inshallah, and we'll all be there until next question, Santa Monica.
I want to know, I want to know the final result of a person who does not have any source of guidance from his environment or from his family. And he hasn't met anyone who has already been guided, what is what will be the final result of? I thought we already answered that question. Allah subhanaw taala says in many verses of the Quran, and the omaka nama, Divina, Rasul, Allah subhanaw taala does not punish anyone, until he sends a prophet to them. And even after the death of the prophets, this means that the message of the Prophet reaches, so if the message doesn't reach him, and especially if he's a sincere person, and he wanted to know the truth, and he but he or she didn't find anyone
to help them, then insha Allah, there is a hadith which says, that such people who will be tested on the Day of Judgment, they will not be tested in this world, but in the Day of Judgment, they will be put separately from other people and
and profits will be sent to them and they will be judged according to their response to the work the profits about anyway and no one like this would go automatically to help. There are many, many verses of the Quran for example, like which still show that no one is plunged into Hellfire,
who has not known the truth and
the United cool lemma, if you have children, whenever a group of them is cast in it put in it. So,
the people who keep keeping her prior they asked them, let me
give you a warning attempt to you. So this applies to everyone.
Tatyana z. Yes, a woman came to us. So this means that no one will be put in Hellfire, who
whom the message not to be judged who did not know the truth and, and rejected?
Salaam Alaikum. My question is to shake use. And, you know, prophets had the ability to prophesize future events and but we see that you know, some people other than the prophets, for example, Nostradamus, he prophesized many of the things and people claim him to be prophet. And my question is, how was he able to prophesize
Bismillah Alhamdulillah wa Salatu. Salam, Salam
allow, but my dear respected brother in Islam, Nostradamus was a fake, read my lips f aka fake and a lot of the garbage on the internet that they said he predicted like for instance 911 and did you read that one? It was fabricated, go to google.com and type in the word urban legend Nostradamus and read how many mistakes this guy's a turkey? Okay, he prophesied nothing except what came to him from some shared theme whispering in his ears read the Quran, Allah talks about that. The share team, what they do the gym, they were trying to go to the outer atmosphere to hear the commands coming to the angels to see what they can pick up and they come down and try to give it to the people. In the
meantime, Allah started sending comets to destroy them and get them. But anyway, when they come back, the law says they add how much to that which is garbage. Like one part of something they heard in 99 parts of what we call in Texas vs. which runs with both spit. So don't go there. Okay, because Nostradamus had nothing. Okay? Now, I don't want to discount what you're saying though. You have a good point. You just happen to pick on somebody I really don't like.
I really don't like fake profits,
any of them.
But the resource on the line of a salon is very clearly that no profit and no messenger would come after him. And Allah said in the Quran, he's the Hartman and via the seal of all the profits. But there is still something that human beings have
It comes in dreams according to what the professor's told us. So there are times when a person feels like, I feel like I've done this before. I feel like I know what's gonna happen, or I want to talk to so and so and the phone rings, and it's so and so on the phone. Here. Sometimes that's how much we believe it. But even when he comes, they're going to ask him to leave the salon. He's going to refuse. He's going to refuse to leave the salon. And he's a profitable all that he said, I'm not coming with any new dean, meaning i'm not i'm gonna follow the way of Prophet Mohammed silver. Why'd
you follow me? So there isn't anybody really prophesizing anything, people making lucky guesses and then other people trying to twist it around and make like it really happened. But I will share one with you before I end this. Because I don't really feel like I'm giving you a good answer for your question. The look on your face tells me you're gone. Wow, wait a minute.
In India, right here in the 1950s. I don't know if any of you remember this. But I do. Because it was published in our newspapers in the States. The story of a small boy in a village here in India.
A small boy, he said to his mother, my mother, you're not my mother. She went What? He said, my name is so and so. And he goes, she said, What are you talking about? He said, I'm from a different village. She's never been to such and such a village. He said, and I'm married to a lady bla bla bla bla bla and they're gone. Oh, this kid's crapped up, you know, but he kept insisting, insisting, insisting until they took him to the village that he mentioned. And he directed them himself go down the street, turn here, go there, go over there. Now you bring the lights was this on the love and tear, they came to this house and they knocked on the door?
good sound effects.
That's better. And the lady opened the door and he said, This is my wife. And she went, Whoa, was that
She said he said to her I'm so and so she said that's my husband's name. But he said, he said no, this is me. I'm here in the ladies amazing newspaper in the magazines and books written about this boy, it happens every so many years right here in India. He said I'll prove it to you go upstairs, look and go here, go there and look under so and so you're going to find some money that I left there for you take it and she went up and there was
to those people it proved there is in reincarnation
yes or no.
To us, it proves that the little boy was talking to the jinn
the gene live two to 300 years much longer than we do.
And we can't see them. But they're there. And some of them are shut down. And they bother somebody right up to death, to try to get them to go to hellfire.
And when that person dies, they don't stop there they go find somebody else and try to work on them. So this gene was bothering his poor old man until he died, sent him to hell. Then he went and found a little boy you could talk to and told him all about this old man. And the little boy repeated what he heard from the gym.
You follow what I'm saying? Here in India, and it convinced a lot of people they're going to reincarnate. But you only got one shot at this life. And that's for sure. Everybody's going to be born once and die once and be resurrected again. And not told us in the Grand Coulee nothing back at the moment everybody's going to taste that. There's a very beautiful question. I wish I had a better answer for you.
All salaam aleikum.
When you first visit Medina, Medina Navara, what should
we read is the OData. Salam, salam, it is with Arizona or rasulillah. These
are you asking this a general art when you're specifically going to be in front of the cover of the resource of a live song?
Check for the
Okay, I want to answer a part of your question. I'm not qualified to give you a full answer. I'm a I'm a baby. I'm gonna just tell you one thing. When anybody says yeah, we're school. They're calling him as though he's alive
and he is dead.
This is important to understand that it's very important. Don't be misguided and believe that resources are alive, some did not die. That happened even at the time of Muhammad sighs Salaam when he first passed away
silhouette is someone that it was Omar, who was very distraught. And he said, I'll kill the first person who said that the prophets of Salaam is dead. He's not dead. But then it was double buffer who came up to him and read to him from the Quran.
What Allah said, if the Prophet Salaam dies or turned back or something like this, then what will that do to your faith? So it's clear that this is something important for us to recognize he is dead, you cannot ask him for anything. You cannot do that. And I know I heard some people I call him want to be scholars say that you can and they try to bring these evidences. But this goes against your common picture, which Shaq was speaking about earlier. This is common picture for you to know that you can only call on a lot. So I recommend not to ever start out your research like this. But rather the way that the process that I'm sitting in the head is, and you do make the art for him.
And there is a greeting that you give to people in the graves Yes, but you don't call on them as though you're asking for some kind of help. That's all I want to say about it, check, please pick it up.
last panel data does not hold the person responsible for just a linguistic expression. Like especially if someone that is not your language, and we don't really know what you are saying.
Allah subhanaw taala
holds people responsible for what they understand what they intend and so on. Secondly, it depends on the context. In Arabic, I can say to anyone. I said America you're
not i'm not i'm not worshipping Yusuf. I hope I'm not. So I said I have my rica user. So it doesn't
it worthy of emotion.
Especially if he's American, I want worship.
Don't get distracted.
So I can say yeah, if I mean just like oh,
Old English can say
good morning or so. Oh, you're so so Oh, he I just like yeah, so there's no problem in this. Abdullayev naramata used to.
After the death of the prophet SAW Selim used whenever he came, he traveled and came back. He used to go to visit the prophets. Allah set them up and he said Salah, Baraka Rasul Allah, Santa Monica de my father, a Solomonic a Harry Potter sola. In fact, he would step back Salaam to Abu Bakr first, before before, before his own father. So the word Yeah, in this context, it doesn't. There's no problem. But if you say, You're Sol, Allah, help me.
That's the problem. Then we hear you are making what is called in Arabic is terrorizer. You are in a difficulty. And instead of saying Yama, you're saying you're Sol Allah, or Yaki breed, or you're one of these people who are supposed to be saved. And the man is in grave. He doesn't hear what you what you hear what you say. And he and he does the word he is you don't know whether he is in Hellfire or is in paradise. And the man might be in difficulty. And he needs you're
making draft for him. You ask him to give you to give you something so that Yeah, in that sense, is his ship.
Salaam Alaikum. My question is of any one of you. My question is whatever the IRS called mazzaglia that contradicts with the common sense.
Could you come again, whatever those
of Quran with karma cassava
which contradicts with common sense.
That's the question. Are you asking the question? What about verses in the Quran which are contradicting people's common sense? Yes. Your question that
he says he talks he also talks about the mother sabia Yeah, there are no verses in the Quran which contradicts people's common sense, but some people find difficult. Allah subhanaw taala would not say something which she knows cannot be understood by anyone, and which will cause difficulty for people. That's why some of the other said that Machado is something relative
What is motor shabby, you may not be with the shabby to me. One thing. Secondly, it depends also on what you mean by moto.
moto shabby means something that on the face of it
attributes to Allah subhanaw taala something which can be attributed to human beings only.
So much it means it looks like it looks like but that's not what is meant when Allah subhanaw taala describes himself as having hands or eyes, or that even in a Hadith of the Prophet SAW salam, that he smiles and so on, some animals call this Mata Sharia, because and they might give some people the impression that now we are likening Allah to his to human beings.
And that's why
the correct way of interpreting the mutesa behalf is to correct to interpret them in the mind of karma. Karma is the one that in which there is no there's no problem not no Shiva. If Allah says, Allah, Allah,
there is no problem laser chemistry, there is nothing like
so if he says, nothing is like him,
then if he says he has eyes, then you interpret this in the light of that one.
Allah said, he has eyes that he said that there is nothing like him.
So this means that the eyes he has not like human eyes? How do they look like we don't know. Because we don't know how aligned simply apply.
There is nothing in our world to compare Allah subhanaw taala with we know we don't know how he looks like, we only know his attributes. And now we have come to know that he has this attribute of eye
or hearing or so on. But that these are not like those of human beings. And as one alum said, and this sometimes applies, even to create things
mean, if you say the eye of the needle,
I cannot it's not like
prefer the eye, the eye of the needle is something different from from his art. So if someone says the eye of the needle, we don't say, Oh, this man is going How can a needle have an eye
like this, or if you say
something has legs, it can be a table in Arabic at least I don't know.
But the legs of the table are not like my own legs. So the attribute, the attribute depends on on the thing
to which you are ascribing that.
If you're talking about Allah subhanaw taala then you know that is attributes
