Oh, I thought this was supposed to be interesting.
It is nice to finally get you driving around in circles. And when I looked up the place online, I typed again, for the theater, a lot of cinema theater.
And it's good to be with you. Before we go any further because I'm just getting
hammered. So I'll do some quick inventory Do we have right now with us? Anybody who's not listening? If you're not,
okay, you have emotions here with the 5050 terrorists versus the Nami.
One of the common questions I always get people ask in different ways, you know, everybody has a different way of presenting a question, very common for people to ask me about people who go into a slump? Why do people go through a slump, especially now, and especially why so many women are going into a slump? It doesn't seem to stack up it doesn't seem to fit? How could the stats be correct? And from the media presentation on the one side, and then what? statistics and by the way, in the same media, so there's some imbalance with it. So
then, particularly people ask me how I got this man. And I don't want to bore you with all that. But I think it is appropriate, at least to touch a little bit on the thing, give you some idea about it. It was 1981 that I was trying to convert a Muslim from Egypt to become a Christian.
And I spent about three months trying my best, you know, to really give it to him. And by the way, I'm from Texas, and you know, guys,
did you vote for him?
But seriously, what I did what I did notice about the man, he did business with us, I didn't notice that about him that he didn't get around. Like, I like to get on this part of the episode have a good time.
But he was real serious and was real stickler about everything he said had to be exactly right. loads, if you ask him what time it was, he's not going to say
he's gonna tell you that it's six minutes.
He was like trying to be accurate, very truthful person, which is good. And
along the way, I get to know that this man took everything serious. And not all Muslims are that serious, but he was a serious person. And everything he did, he would think about it, he would reflect on and then he would answer questions
And along the way, also observe that he found his religion ability, which is praying five times a day and fasting
in Islam, and being truthful, being fair in your business dealings.
And after a while, as we convert the scale with Christianity, we make him a saint.
relief, good guy.
It wasn't really until we got to this one particular subject, that anything said really reached already had my opinion made up I already know.
Some of you may be old enough to remember that all the way back then. We had seen these images coming out of your arm about these
terrorists hijacked airplanes and they would kill somebody and go out on the tarmac and they were bowing down on the ground you're like, or kind of religion is this, you know? And as far as I was concerned, Islam and Muslims is all about terrorism, hijacking kidnappers, and they don't need God of Jesus and they're worshipping a black box in the desert. That's the world.
So there wasn't really any reason but no matter what he said, I really wasn't listening, or really fan attention until he responded to some of the things that I was saying by telling me that he would become a Christian that he would come to my religion is my religion is better than his religion.
Fill up the batches tonight.
By this time you
get the basic pillars and you read about the our columns and things like that. So you know that Muslims have to pray five times a day, they have to fund the month of Ramadan, they have to make something called pilgrimage to a place that Metro wants to live. And they have to give a certain portion of money directly to the board every year.
So I'm back to him real fast and look here, the person, you don't have to stand there, and
you don't have to fast.
And you don't have to go anywhere, just do whatever it is you do. You don't have to do a pilgrimage. You don't have to give any charity if you don't want to.
Because that's not what
he said. The rest of my sentence.
He wasn't talking
carefully, he told me
how to do religion, if your religion is better than my religion.
But I will need proof.
religion man is not religious about faith. That's what religion is faith. You believe some we have faith in natural religion.
He said, Well, in Islam, we have both. We have faith and we have proof.
you sit here telling me as a Muslim, you can prove there really is a God.
You can prove it.
And he said, You need to tell me as a preacher for Christianity you can?
Of course we can.
So I was forced, this is a painted myself into the corner, did not ask him question.
Can you remove their cigar?
He said, If Islam does offer proof,
are you willing to reconsider your position?
Whatever proof is submitted,
is good proof, testable evidence, scientific sharp.
He then began to do what most Muslims take for granted every day. Most Muslims
take for granted certain things that the rest of the world just really doesn't know about. Or maybe they didn't think about.
But in the recitation of the phone, it's very clear that you're being challenged to challenge your job. From the beginning. You're being told Go ahead. And thank you for bringing
exam. For those who don't believe in God at all. Do we have anybody here say anything to 01? How many?
There is a people die and has disappeared? Yeah.
Or do you believe there might be some damage? I don't know about
percentage of the whole group that we got with us today.
And this is pretty difficult. Not very many people would really say that atheists, the majority of people believe something.
And how many of them would kind of go the other way? How many are sure for know that there is a God? No doubt.
You know, there's a God.
And this is really
what about jobs.
And he challenges disability
doesn't have a belief at all. And he's challenging them.
And telling them if you're in doubt about it, and he's talking about the Koran, then bring a book
no atheists coming up with anything.
And that's it. Another challenge
is that he's going to show down this proves proves signs
themselves and on the furthest horizons. And if you read through the code, you see some very amazing statements that people 1400 years ago,
had not even come up with it never mind challenging it, they never even came up with something like this. The idea that the earth is turning cold mentioning
the concept because they didn't think of the Earth is being round. Most people thought it was flat, you just go so far and follow up it does that right?
And so when you read the Quran, and you start seeing some of the things that we take for granted today, especially Muslims taken for granted, but you go back and think at the time of speaking with you.
And how could somebody come up with that? Here's an example for you.
William Harvey, a few 100 years ago came up with what we call the western first one to come up with an idea of
how milk, you know, is coming from the cow. But 1400 years ago, 1000 years before him before and tells you exactly that milk comes from a conjunction in South Africa, between the middle of the between the blood and the intestine.
guess well, could be, but it was not a wrong guess. Important thing is yours help correct.
Another thing he mentions in the groundlessness, the one of the sources of chapters, talks about how these mountains have like 10th page going deep, deep down down into the core of the Earth.
And of course, anybody's in geology today knows that. In fact, I was just in India last month talking to members, geologists, and he said that's really what woke him up to Islam. He read that he said,
This is what we know the shape and design and some of the things about this. Geologists that couldn't talk about this same thing.
A few years back, Dr. Keith Moore, one of the top embryologist from candidate Trump candidate,
talked about some of the things
that they only recently came to know in the development
of the fetus inside of the model.
Yet this is coming from again, so many centuries back.
He talks to us about the subject of what the grand halls of power
was the very first revelation on when Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was fasting when he was in a cave.
The angel gabriel the same angle came to America and others in the province
came to him and told him to recite something
April this year, a little valley Hello hobbico in Santa min hour. I'll stop there because this is my point.
Which an herb if you go to the Urban Dictionary,
you might be surprised to find this description of something which claims hands like refrigerator pipe
or another description that has his blood clot. And another description in has is the beach.
The beach is fine. On those bloodsuckers that you get down you go down the Amazon River in
A description like this,
which is perfect according to
that because it's true as the egg is fertilized. It attaches itself in planes and forms.
And under a microscope. You can see the shape of it is like a little teeny tiny leech.
There's no way that anybody could come up with this 100 years ago, much less 14 centuries back.
He's not the only embryologist he commented on this even before him there was another commenter from France was Dr. Maurice
tables before he passed the word. Dr. Keith Morrison still alive he did not accept this man although he endorses the sentences from God he says
but he didn't say one Muslim
But in my own particular case, what I was impressed with is something that I was looking for was interested in mountains, or how babies start out where milk comes from. For me, no comes from refrigerator.
what I'm wanting to know, is really, how can we prove there's a God?
along with that, I want to know, if there's a God, what's our purpose? What did you create this for?
As I was thinking this in mind,
and I'm trying things in reading,
had a similar one to the young lady we just showed the prompts you.
For next you want to get another copy. Anyway.
want him to chapter 51? Verse
from the Bible, Muslims, they go by the scope surah of Daria, and it says, Jean was in Italy. Back then I didn't know any Arabic.
But the English translation is said that God only created us
to worship him without partners.
That was the answer. That was the thing that hit me, because
I already know the Old Testament
gospel, pretty cool, too. And this is exactly what it says.
How many? How many of you know the First Amendment? You know?
the preamble do it in Exodus, and also in Deuteronomy, but in
is something like the Lord your God brought you out of the land of Egypt in the house of bondage, you know, no other gods beside me.
first commandment says Thou shall not have any other gods.
everybody, we agreed with that.
So let's jump back to the New Testament.
Mark, second draft, Chapter 12 years from now, they will ask me, who's asked
the folks that the Sanhedrin for the benefit of Muslims is much, much shorter.
Temple. So the people who sent the Pharisees,
basically, were trying to give Jesus peace be upon him a hard time. They were challenging, but what is this? What is that we are supposed to do this on Sunday. And so how, you know, this is the way they were treated.
And they will challenge him with this.
What's the greatest commandment? When you read it? I'm sure many of you memorized it. He said, The same is what it says in Deuteronomy, chapter six. Here, O Israel, the Lord your God is One Lord.
And you have to love Him with all your heart, all your mind, in all your strength?
How many of you remember
or wrong? Look it up?
So when I read it, all right, that makes sense. Because if God with all my heart on my mind, and all my streams
I was waiting for.
So when I started looking at this, and the more I look at it, there's a lot here. That makes sense. So after a period of time, things happen in my life, I decided to accept Islam.
And I still have reservations about God. But my reservations were about Muslims. Because I see this, people do this and those people do that. And you know, everybody, but some things that people do.
After coming into spam, I realize that scientists absolutely perfect,
absolutely perfect, but most of us aren't.
I didn't really plan on doing what I'm doing today. I never planned that I was going to be going around to universities and lecturing and talking about religion that just never was the
for four hours.
And the reason for that, of course, everything's by God's will still at the same time, I decided that nobody else was going to do it all day. Long the way I became a chaplain started working in the prisons, and became the national Muslim chaplain for a while, and then the delegates to the United Nations World Peace Conference for religious leaders.
And everywhere I went all the time, I found that the best audience that I had the most attentive audience that would be with me, and those who asked the best questions really anonymous.
Because they really want to know, whereas a lot of the times when the person came up to me with questions and things, I was trying to figure out how to get around something.
You might have responded up to give you an example.
Here's what happened.
The first time there was Ramadan, fasting the whole month, you know, and intended something and I was trying to understand what's going on. They had
the conch chair for a teacher would come all the way from one of the oldest universities on earth and all as far as Cairo from Egypt. And he was lecturing. Very nice gentleman, but it was all in.
But everybody seemed happy. So I was happy to be there with everybody in
the end of it, they opened it up for the questions.
And he said something to him in Arabic, they said, Well, he wants us to take from the ladies first. So they went got a question from the ladies to give it to him.
He looked at it.
He said something in Arabic. And everybody cracked up though with
And the translator himself, was laughing so hard, you know, because he's
instead, what happened is the sheriff said the question question yours. And you know what the job was the job, it means the covering the ladies were the covering the scarf and all the rest of he said the ladies are asking
a question that general question about the job. And do we really have to wear this?
And very quickly, he said in Arabic, which means my answer is the same answer as the last shape that you asked.
We all see exactly. Remember that.
I didn't realize how serious the problem is, until I started traveling around and doing this because every single place I go, it never fails.
That's one of the key questions. And we even have a joke he and I do this local routine with normal routine. So we can't do
that when they ask us the question. Get it? He'll ask real serious Well, what about
Jews Muslims really have to wear an iron straight face go back and say no,
not the boys.
Then he says
he says he says
every Muslim woman have to wear and again the answer is no.
Now, this is intended This is intended actually to help Muslim women understand something to compare to other religions. Because in
any Catholic schools
we were on Catholic TV yesterday. What channel was that?
1400 friends now, if you get the channel you might check it out. We've got to be it was broadcast live yesterday got another sweet might get a chance to watch it. They hosted a very low level it
will happen on our internet website.
Score YouTube islam.com, if you want to check it out should be a
lot of fun. But in any case, one of the things that the Catholic religion, the best of the best, and Catholic would like to be nuns. And they join a convent, and they were a habit.
And it's a covering that goes all over them and everything.
But the difference here is that they all they were all the time from the time that we got to bed. And even if you're in a pocket only with other weapons still where it's like a uniform. But most important is that it isn't Garmin, that they only have to wear when strange men could be looking at them. And it's
it's very clear for her to cover up and describes a general statement of dropping her big scarf down over to you, which means your chest.
Now, along the way, people modified it come up with different ideas and colors and all the rest of it. But again, it's clearly stating in there then breaks it down by saying, you know, probably your father, or your father, not for your brother, your, your children, and so on, and so on, and so on. So it's a long list to be sure she understands. This is for strange men.
So that is the job. And I explained it that way. So what we're doing here now do the humor,
is helping the Muslims also understand your religion. And in the same way I try to help the non Muslims sometimes tell some jokes that aren't really that funny. But out of politeness, you laugh, and we will educate them. Or I have used it almost all the time. And Adam will use the last couple of minutes now to do what I call entomology of Islam. How many of you know what the etymology is?
Okay, because you already know I'm gonna try to get away with
it. tamala g simply means taking words that
are just all these must be doctor.
But no. That's apology words.
These are Arabic words. And if you don't understand them, in Arabic, it's real easy for somebody to fool you. Most of our employment with these words, incidentally, that was the problem and play ping pong. This doesn't say what she was saying. But that's okay.
The first word will tell you that this word alone,
because we're just talking about worship of the gods. So let's find out how many of them and just be honest, you really don't think that this a lot is the same God that you worship, raise your hands, you don't really believe because
you're not sure.
By the way that a person says I don't know. That's considered the first sign of knowledge in this time.
It is the first sign of a knowledgeable person who slams when they don't have to admit they don't know something.
So that was
the word that I'm using along in there.
And it comes from a root he loves.
Some of you may know a little bit about Hebrew. Hebrew, the word l in Hebrew, is this word Isla. It's, it's a god. It can be any kind of God anything which is worse,
which is a rock sticks down bone, a statue and in a
the stars if you're an astrologist, all of these things are Gods because the devotion below that Thanksgiving is going to do that.
But when you say alone,
then it means only that God doesn't have any partners. There's no true going to come after the one.
So in this case, the word allies perfectly describe the God of Abraham, Moses, Jesus, peace be upon all
of us. That's what we're telling the people.
There's only one God, and you have to give all of your devotion and worship to him from your heart, and your strength.
All your worship is
this is the message.
So that's now helping us understand a little bit and I want you to challenge me a little bit on this and say why no guy comes from Texas and starts fast up in on the west coast. We know what happened when we went to the east coast. So
somebody's got a joke.
You know that in every motel and hotel on this planet, if you go over to the drawers,
pull the top drawer and forget the other pages.
You get it.
by the way,
a lot of effort, a lot of work, I wish the Muslims to get to work.
Because you would know real fast whether or not somebody's pulling your leg.
But in any case,
I opened the wound up in hotels in a few weeks ago, and in turn six pages to find where it was.
Then I found out that not all the same printing publisher, so may have turned seven pages with food as a topic in here a little bit, and they're happy because they have translated this point seven languages. The first one is Afrikaans language, and they give you a sample of For God so loved the world right out of john 316. And then the next one right after that is RBU. Arabic is an Arabic.
Arabic. So let me read. It says exactly for all of us all over the world.
That's a spell.
I took the opportunity, somebody gave me a chance to get the Bible translation in Arabic, the whole Bible. So when did Genesis and started let me just see how long I could read before I find this word a lot. Before it all it was in the first sentence. In fact, it's 17 times on page one who created the heavens and earth according to the Bible, in Arabic, law.
all the way through everywhere we have capital God, we have a lot. And everywhere we have little God we have evil.
The problem here isn't about translation isn't much it is English itself. English is deficient. When you want to talk about religion, when you want to take the real Hebrew Hebrews, by the way, a very powerful language. So it's Arabic. And when you take the Semitic languages, especially dealing in religion, this is that you can read English,
you almost have to make up some words to cover it because it's not there.
How many of you know
benefits some of the most
variable, a given example, the word Dean that point me
in a DNA?
That word was a translation in all these books, what do they say?
Wrong is much bigger than that. That's an expression you have to say, complete way of life was the only way you can translate. So I'm not blaming the translators at all. Obviously, English is weak. Because what happens
if somebody worships something based on whatever you said, it's called a word
in English in English.
And if somebody wants to worship the Deity, the deity of Abraham is called a word.
The word worship
basically trying to make a point here.
The word God is used twice. God is evil. And God means
only yours is the big G. Yeah. There's no difference. The
only difference is the big now here's the problem you got, you're talking to somebody, they can't see what you're saying.
And what if you're writing it but you have to start a sentence like God said, Well, maybe you meant the little guy that the real God is wanting to speak but you still have to struggle with
So you see what English says God
is going to carry it. And in fact, when you go the other way, you got a problem because if you translate the English backward to Arabic, they will know that you
are doing wrong
Here's something interesting, but
it can't be made plural.
nor can it have gender, so gods
and goddesses not alone.
Now, if I told you
a verse in Scripture, God is not a man
that he should have seen. And God is not the man
that should repent
that he has no children, no sons and daughters, and he has no father.
And he's not like his creation
those are those are compatible statements.
asserting of course that they're compatible statements, but one of them is from the Koran, and the other one's from the Bible? Which one do you think is from the Koran?
The first one, or the second?
Second one is from the, from the Quran.
How many of you
how many think the first one is actually from the goddess?
That's number 23, verse 19, God is not
So you see it right away, because according to the Quran, God is also not a strong man. He's also not the son,
or daughters. And the word of God, as I just told you has no gender.
So for us, as Muslims, we're very comfortable with the fact that a man nor either a man or a woman wrote the Quran, we don't have that, that stigma. My sister, by the way, is one of the ladies who's advocating that we need to go back and change the Bible and put some places in there where she instead of hate
to make it even.
I read it online, and there's one lady she wants to put everywhere. And all she heard she like that, because she said creations from women and men who just messed up the Bible.
We don't want to come down to the other word, Muslim, and Islam, because they're related. The word Islam is often misrepresented by Muslims. Now, obviously, the media is saying, terrorism and all that.
But, but Muslims also make a mistake, when they say sometimes peace is mistaken.
How many Muslims in
the world for peace is what?
Similar, was not similar is
It's got an implication no indication, if the both of these words come from a root in Arabic language seen that means three letters still, and the verb is based on is called a schema. And the verb means to surrender, submit, obey insincerity in peace. And also is this overall holiness to the meaning of its complete. All of that come from a world in which we don't have anything like that. We don't have any any word in English that combines all those five together, but that's what Islam the word does. Surrender, submit, obey sincerity and peace to
that's what it implies. Now, let's go look at the Bible.
It's in the gospels, you have twice the Lord's Prayer.
familiar with the Lord's Prayer. The
God's will be done on earth as it is in heaven.
Yes, God's will.
Yeah, if you believe in God,
Whether you're a Jew or a Christian, or a Muslim, that's a valid statement. And you say, well, where did the Jews get it from? Oh, please, please go back and look at the commandments, then go back and look what happened every time Moses asked the children of Israel to do something and how they rebelled,
And when they were supposed to go in, is, I think, to the town at the time of judgment.
I used to have all these memories. And they rebelled, and they wouldn't build a sense on my head. And he said, they're giants, we can't go in and fight them, they reveal
what the story is even more clear, when it comes into saying how they refuse it wouldn't go in, say story. And this is exactly talking about what not worshipping property, because when God gives a commandment,
and since the prophet to warn you and tell you what to do, or tell you what not to do, either way, if you don't do it, you're in violation, you're in violation of your board, you haven't really lived up to doing God's Will on Earth.
if somebody says, I want to do what God wants me to do, and they're believing in one God of Abraham, Moses, Jesus, peace be upon them, and
they said, you're gonna have to use the word in Arabic.
Just means one who does this, because they don't use the suffix array. Er, they use the prefix mu and Arabic for the verb.
That's one cause the other
one moves. The one who tries Safari comes from this same outward Safari.
selling this means to pray the ritualistic prayer, again, we don't have enough words in English to talk about always.
Having God in your mind consciousness, this is called
This is called God.
Worship God is called Southern.
So whoever does it.
So whoever believes in God wants to do what? They're trying to follow the commandments that they know you can't make up the religion. Yes.
So then they would be a
or one, because of the
is also an Arabic word, and then doesn't have a real equivalent in English, but we try to give you an idea.
It comes from the root.
what do we reaches the level of Oregon it means that which is being recited the recitation of Quran, the recitation
and it is not caught on as it's being recited. So the answer for the friend here who brought the question up, is that even if it was written in Arabic, it wouldn't have been in number on anyway.
It's only for
when you write it down in Arabic, it has a totally different word.
From the word civil, which means scriptures, reading scripture, human beings can write and write anything they want.
But you can't do that.
Because that isn't from human beings.
Because you don't have the Arabic You can't really appreciate this. But even Arabs who are non Muslims, and by the way, there are many are Christians. There are Jewish Christians, atheists, I mean, Jewish, most of them.
read the script with meaning Give me the right words.
to prompt your
arrows who are Jews, Christians, atheists.
So to be an American, ensure that you're going to be a Muslim at all, but all of them agree of ours. Anybody who knows Arabic language agrees that there isn't anything really like the Koran even though
there isn't a document like it in Arabic language.
It's very powerful when you hear it.
So it is the recitation, but when people write it down, even in Arabic,
Yes. But isn't the real deal.
You get $1 in your pocket, how many people that are gone?
I just want you to think for a minute.
But you think you have $1 of some kind.
And even though you've got a bigger pockets, you know, isn't really $1.
Why? Well, constitution, United States claims that only Congress shall coin money and money is defined in the constitution as what two elements
So unless you get a piece of gold or silver in your pocket, it says under United States Treasury, you do not have $1. You have a note, which represents that? Yes or no?
No, right on it
represents and it used to say back when I was a little guy, it used to say anything redeemable in lawful money in any Federal Reserve Bank, they took that out.
No, you can't do that anymore. In fact, you're considered a terrorist threat.
Seriously, though, this is the same on it represents something that's somewhere else, but you can touch it. And that's exactly the best way to understand. So if you saw somebody wrote something else on it,
they could do that. But it doesn't change the value of the real thing. That's important stuff. And the same way people can write things and say things from this from them. But it isn't the Parana start Everybody with me? Did I help you clear anything at all? In this
I'm going to tell you that we have a rule everywhere I go, that all the questions if we even take them have to be in written format. And they're supposed to circulate some papers when you came in and gave you a way to write in it didn't have it, nobody gave you paper or pencil is raise your hands. And these cute looking guys will come running right down the aisle and take care of
this, raise your hand up. Okay, guys.
Okay, now, I'm gonna mosey back over here to the table with Southern Morgan. And we're bringing you guys a chance to go and read your questions. This is not a break. By the way. If you don't get to the
you can do this. Okay. But we'll be happy to take those questions in the order that we get them up here.
The question says, Can the Bible be used as a historical book? As for places, events and people? It is a trick question
exactly what the Bible can be used for. And in reality, that's probably all it can be used for. Because of the fact that, as I said earlier, we can't really connect it to the legend source, who is a piece of the money of Jesus, the son of Mary. Historically speaking in Islam, we have a science known as its men, which is the science of verification, of connecting things back to their sources. And the scholars of Islam have never been destroyers of anything. So we have a lot of books and narrations that we reject. But they were always preserved. I guess, maybe someday we'll find that it's correct or for historical record or whatever. One clear example of this, as you may have heard
recently, this whole consternation about the Satanic Verses in Selma adversity in his book and all this stuff. I bet most of you didn't know that the Satanic Verses story came from one of the five most famous books of the biography of Prophet Muhammad, peace be fine. But it was always known to the scholars of Islam, that it was baseless, that had no it's not no chain, it couldn't be connected back to the profit, but it was preserved nonetheless. So when we look at the Bible, we see an historical doctrine.
There are things that in knowledge about the Prophet Isa, but it has to be connected. So it's kind of like, you know, game of telephone and you go around the room, there's probably still some truth in it. But you don't you're not really sure. But as far as reflecting the first century or the year 70, or the year 100 of the year 200. Yes, of course, it can be a reflection of what people thought at that time, what people believed at that time.
What are some of the contradictions in the Bible that the Quran brings clarity to?
First of all,
the Muslim, non
I don't like it, when we get away from Islam and start calling what we're doing in the name of Islam.
In particular, I'm talking about a debate that took place some many years ago is the Bible, the Word of God. And I'm not going to mention the two participants, one was a Christian was Muslim. And this thing got circulated. And it was in video format, and it went everywhere around the world. And if you were just talking about something that was interesting to observe, that's fine. But when you begin to teach it as though this is, it was ridiculous. Simply because I'm going to ask the Muslim to question
the tab, detailed look this way, where did it come from?
Where did it come from?
So who then would be the first one to defend and say the Bible came from God, us?
So when would you make up a debate about something that's a foregone conclusion? And the structure of the sentence? The so called rhetorical question there doesn't work for us,
is the Battle of the Word of God? And how can you take any position except yesterday is that there's literally in its original format, but not in English? You just heard her talk about the Quran that you can't put it into English. And everybody agreed. That's right. I wouldn't be the Quran anymore. You understood that? The same holds true for the Bible. How in the world can you imagine that a language English,
which didn't even exist 2000 years ago.
It came about in pretending 6680 with the Normans invaded the Saxons.
And then it was changed so drastically over the next few 100 years that your eyes a day as so called into speakers would try to read for something written seven or 800 years ago, we wouldn't have a clue what it was.
But you said l equals Arabic.
I may have said something that made me think I said that. I said in Hebrew, it's L. In Arabic, it's the love. Who said,
I didn't say it came from that because Arabic and Hebrew are both ancient Semitic languages. And I didn't say one is based on the other.
Because there are scholarships to argue about that. So I'm going to get into that argument. So one is not coming from the other. But anyone know that? Islam and the need to go back to its Hebrew roots, the same handwriting here whoops, better Hebrew roots again and again. Yeah, okay. Sure. It says Adam as a Hebrew name. So obviously, the Hebrew language was chosen language by L, which is God. Okay, I got news for you, guys.
Many alumni game because what asked the question, how many people know how to stay in the Russian language? Anybody
had to say?
How do you say Adam in French,
In fact, every single language on this planet where I went asking people in some form of the same word, Adam, and it's not because of Hebrew, it's because everybody knows who their father is. We just get to agree on who our God is.
To divide people up.
We got plenty ways to divide.
A lot tells us in
if you don't want to read, fine, but read chapter 49 it really makes you wake up and realize a way to deal with people long before we had psychiatrists, psychologists, counselors, that was a free free advice for you on about how to treat each other sweet, sad.
Get a load, check it out. Sort of settings, the Bible, the Word of God, we already answered that it was originally but what they represent translations of things that people have. It's like translating prompts, that would be perfect. Is God not strong enough to protect this word from corruption? Okay, hold on a sec.
When you start asking a rhetorical question like this, and that's not a question answers tutorial, is gut strong, yes or no? Whoa, hold on. Muslims have a different take on this. Because everything we say about the law is not in the form of comparative to anything in the creation. So when we say a lot,
he's the absolute of strength.
And when we say he's a suburb, we don't mean he's patient. He is the patient.
I want to say, knowledge bloom, he's around me, is
there any knowledge except the compliment? So don't ask me? Is he strong enough? There isn't any strength in the universe except his strength. So whatever happens usually, what where's the devil ministering. And this is a misconception that most people have. Even some Muslims have this misconception. The devil doesn't have power.
He doesn't have power. Unless you give it to him. By listening to him, All he has is this ability to whisper
and then you react if you react, you get out, and then you blame him when he steps away, it goes.
Just like that. That's how it works.
And God created the devil for a reason. Because this life is a test.
Basically, human beings is coordinates land, human beings are born perfect. They're not body wise, but they're born in the perfect state of submission instrument or to God. Babies are innocent, innocent as a newborn baby. That's the teaching of Islam, but then they become corrupted as their maturity.
But anything that's new this, mothers, sisters,
daughters, listening to this,
any baby, regardless of the parents religion, or lack of it, if it dies,
because the paragraphs
that's what Islam says.
Now, if any of you've ever lost the baby know how it hurts, there's nothing like that pain. It's a pain in something.
But at least you have this reconciliation that no one has said, your babies in paradise with God. And here's the bonus that Dave is praying to God and asking that one moment. And
it. We don't have Original Sin The baby has to come in for
if you do, then that's what you got to deal with. We don't have a problem.
does it stop have a concept of forgiveness? Absolutely.
Forgiveness is simply by turning back to allow by regretting having done something wrong by making a firm intention never to do it again. And asking for forgiveness. That's all there is no intermediary required. There's no intercessor is directly between the slave and his creator. And this door is open for your entire life until shortly before death. Which leads us right into the next question. It says Why do Muslims take the place of God? sin by cutting off people's heads? Isn't it up to God forgive or punch? You said
takes the place of God, nevermind about punishing the human being, if anybody even changes any of the law of God, according to Islam, they're in the worst part of hellfire. read chapter nine, verse 31 of the Quran. And this is very clearly talking about the people before us who corrupted the teachings by telling people God said this or the rule is that and it wasn't what God intended. And they do it when they did. These are the lowest scumbags.
The Pharisees and the propagators of a religion. They invented these
All the hell. Now if you said Oh, that's awful harsh, no use Have you been around these Muslims too long? I know quoting from Islam now according to the Bible.
How many of you know man, chapter five, verse 17.
Jesus religion is written because they said Jesus said, we didn't speak English, but the meaning is pretty clear to me. I think not that I can show them on the prophets I came out to destroy,
but rather to fulfill
and not do all things on heaven and earth are accomplished sell a single dot java

And whosoever breaks the least commandment, and teaches this there's a point that's being made breaking commandments and teaching it's okay to do it or corrupting the teachings. He's going to be the least of the kingdom. But whosoever keeps the commandments, and teaches this will be the highest and
and unless your righteousness exceeds that of these Pharisees, those were
the ones that were controlling the temple. remind yourself of the churches and mosques we haven't done anything unless your righteousness exceeds that of these guys, you will in no wise enter the game.
Exactly what you remembered as plus or minus.
You're asking what are the biblical prophecies about Mohammed Salah lights on peace be upon? How many of you would really like to know something about home for real? Would you like to? Okay, I'm gonna make it easy for you. And you don't have to listen to me keep talking. There's a website called prophet of Islam. Prophet of islam.com has a nice articles over there. And if you missed my voice, I also did the audio for just click on the goodies link in case there are some wonderful things talking about Ahmed, and about some prophecies in the Bible. But you need to look at it for yourself and see how you understand. But I will give you one. It's in the book of Song of Solomon, I
think it's chapter 15. But in any case, it uses the word in Hebrew.
And it's translated is all together.
But it really means the priced one. And Mohammed.
means the price point.
I had a five minute demand what versus
ignore it as you get closer 95
Keep asking questions about understanding up guys.
paradise. I mean, there's several questions and I'm gonna try to put them all together and save some time, paradise for Muslims. It doesn't compare to this life at all. And the things that he describes about paradise there are not like here when it talks about for instance, beautiful women. It's not talking about all the time with a bunch of dressed up ladies.
And I use the term a bit loosely here.
Man keep an eye on this guy.
He knows too much.
Anyway, what I'm saying is that when he describes the beauty and talks about the relationships, it's also clear if you read it, that the virgins in paradise are
pure. Do you know what pure in the in the sense of virgin?
and then the way it was presented, as far as I understood, this was in perpetuity.
So Get your mind out of the gutter.
They stay that way. Oh,
oh, what are you thinking that? Okay, another point. Another point when he talks in there about the rivers, the rivers there are not like rivers here. Some of our rivers are so polluted you can walk across
do your own miracles
but the rivers there are pure and when
talks about wine and does talk about a river of wine. But it's it also says in the text. It's not like the wine here does it toxic a, it's something delicious, very low milk and honey. And when you have that
milk and honey in the paradise, the same thing. But again, it's when somebody wants to try to corrupt something and make you think something else. The comparison, really, between Christianity and Islam.
There's so much that is a lie in so many minutes difference, that it should be the Muslims and the Christian should be the best buddies honor, and praying for each other, I hope, I hope for your best here and hope to see in paradise. Does that mean that be there to
I do know, though, from some of the questions that we have here, that there's a concern
that you have about Muslims coming in and taking over the United States and cutting off everybody's heads and hands.
But if you read it real close,
you'll know that the punishments were only to be given out to people who are the worst of the worst people. So if this is your concern, you need to examine yourself and find out what you're doing out here. If you're working
for being a thief, you might consider looking for another career.
But still in the adopters, that's in the Bible. There was Jesus that went to the defense of the lady, what did he say, let the one without sin cast the first stone, and they all had to walk away because they were looking within themselves. Right.
But they didn't cancel the law.
But he showed him how to understand the spirit of the law.
So just as Moses came with the law, and then those after you tried to corrupt it, by making an old letter, the letter of the law, Jesus explained for them in the spirit of law. But then after that there have been people who tried to turn everything into some spirituality thing to the level that you can't even recognize the law anymore.
To the extended one even said,
because the law, I say number one, I wouldn't be sitting there for
me and cancel the law, including circumcision, including an abort, including and the list goes on. Anybody know what I'm talking about?
True or false.
But you just heard me read to you from math, if anybody breaks the least command
and not until all things in heaven and earth are accomplished. No matter of the law, not a single letter is going to be in any way.
If a guy cancelled the whole entire thing, and you're still buying what he says,
You that's one of the main reasons I stopped reading that.
I want to know the truth. If you're after truth, there's only one way to get
as Kim asked, If you believe there's a God asking me the truth. And that's what I do. And if you do it, I'm pausing.
Yep, you're right about that.
Oh, by the way, in the Bible, the one thing you have mine as it says, the author of confusion is the
So it's not that it's a problem. And it's not the Bible. It's a problem. I think that's that daily the teacher doorstep every morning. That's a problem. I'm sorry. And I think that boop. Do we watch too late at night? He's got the same problem too. Is there confusion on television? There's no confusion in the
websites. Yeah, seriously.
But when I read the Bible, and I read the Koran, and I pray to the Lord, I feel good. I don't feel confused you. Okay. There you go.
That's my favorite word.
you got what?
This question says if Islam as a civilization, when Islam I suddenly Muslims become the majority in the US government will they do away with the constitution and change all laws to change Islam like they did in Malaysia?
Well, the United States has a system and it's based on based on what the majority of the people want. So, but if you're expecting this soon, you have a much better much different
perspective on the world of
Islam. As I said earlier, it's law is not only for Muslims, it's law is for our people. And you can study us 1400 years of history. And you can see, as I suggested earlier, don't study the bed when when people were far from the principles of Islam Look, when presidents are up, for example, is probably the latest one, who, when the Crusades were the critically, Europeans were attempting genocide in the Middle East. And that was a very tense situation where he had a number of prisoners on the other side of the number of prisoners, and the prisoners in Europe were massacred to the last minute. And his immediate Islamic reaction was to release all the prisoners that he had this
customer. And I believe part of his rationale was, if I killed them, it would be in anger at humans and not for the sake of God. So there's a big history out there you can look at, it's not something to be frightened of, is it is the, the civilization which introduced diversity, multiculturalism, and tolerance for minorities to the world. And as I said, you can't look to Muslims to try to find this long. But when you look to Islam and understand the condition of the Muslims,
Oh, my gosh, I got a nice one here. This is really sweet. And this happens frequently. By the way, I'm talking to Muslims, that there are a lot of Americans who really are more fair than sometimes we'll know when you get this idea. Some of you have the idea that Americans are not really fair. They're uneducated, about Islam and things like that. Listen to this. I'm not making it up. As I said, I'm not Muslim. And yet it grieves me when I see an American speaking of Muslims, as if they are all
terrorists. And yet the Christian churches offer a lot of prayer and praise for US Armed Forces, even putting up flags in their
minds. And their honor. This grieves me
evermore because calling themselves Christians, they're still giving people
how can you educate some American Christians that they are guilty of their own accusations? I think you just did. How do you deal with unjust accusations they make against your religion. If you don't mind, I would like to respond to that. By telling the Muslims, this is one of our problems. A we have not gotten the message out properly. From the beginning, you've been too consumed with material world, which is really not Islam. And you know that. And the second one is your response. And your retaliation back to other people's atrocities or to you is not acceptable and slamming. The other night, I was at an event that that was so important, I got a walk down. It was one of the major
events put on by Muslim youth in the New York area.
Because they were letting the children the youth teenagers come up and do whatever they wanted to do their expression like free expression. And one of the youth came up with there isn't much more from New York, born and raised there. But look how his attitude, such such an attitude, folding his arms like this way, and he started chanting his rap back and forth whatever and maybe painted this once expression, he said, which was dead before dishonor.
And he took that out of one of the brochures from American military, on a recruitment brochures, Death Before Dishonor. But that's exactly against Islam.
Because when people are attacking
our religion and saying things against us, we have been ordered exactly how to respond for
And you know it that we're supposed to bear and forbear with patients
in Alabama are suffering a law is with those for sure.
Who are patient? And probably
the best example to
look at and you know, this, you know, this is stories you've heard
about when he was praying in front of the Kaaba had his hand on the ground, they came up with the insides of the dead cow on his back.
And how do we respond?
He did. That's right.
And we went to a tire and walked all the way over there with one of his companions, walked miles, miles miles into the mountains, just to tell the people, there's only one God, and there were so bad for him. And that's against the tradition. By the way, you're supposed to give people three days, three nights, beat him take care, they won't even talk to him. Instead, they knew that he's going to talk about this, they sent this dream urges against him with stones, and they were rocking him and stalling him until he was bleeding. And he was running out of the city and blood running down his whole body and filling up the shoes, his sandals, with blood. The Angel Gabriel came to him
and told him God has angels on both sides of the mountains, ready to bring the rocks and stones done on them the same way they give you on crush them. And this is happening before in the history that when the prophets delivered a message the people didn't listen, they were destroyed like no in the flood. And here is your opportunity to destroy them Just say the word. You know what he did?
He asked a bomb to go.
He said it's hoped that found them will come people who will worship viewed without partners. That was his prayer. Now Muslims, you know these stories, I'm not making it up. And you know that.
So why is militant attitude? Yes, I know what the project was in other countries, as many Muslims. But by the way, these people here are not the ones doing it. And most of these people here don't even really know the reality of what's going on in these countries. They haven't seen it.
And by the way, most of you haven't either. But I've been over there. And I've seen what's going on. And you get bad on both sides, you get given on both sides. And none of it's good.
But since when does one evil in retaliation for another evil equal any good? When.
a lot of
you will be asked on the date of judgment.
Now these people a lot.
So it's important for you to get up off your Duff and start spreading some of the truth about real estate. Oh, and by the way, right? If you don't want me to manage this, try and live in my career.
Stop copying the ego that you see in other places.
in case you forgot
let's talk about rights. Anybody want to talk about rights, women's rights, human rights, plants, rights, trees, rights, fisheries rights?
What does this say about rights?
If I said it's not that give anybody any rights at all, would you believe that?
No, you wouldn't believe that.
What if I said this? was the first ever
shall we say philosophy or
that offered rights to everybody.
The word in Arabic is Hawk. Hawk, it also you can understand the truth from that writes from that, but to hear about his ultimate rights is the number one thing you know, in Islam, you must not break the first commandment, that's number one. Second Commandment is all part of that third commandment, also part of that about worshiping God alone, not taking his names in vain, not making statues, all of that is a part of the rights that cannot be violated. There's no limit on that. But right after that, everything else has limits. All the other things where there are rights, there are also limits. Most of us never think about limits doing.
I want to know my rights, but nobody wants to know their limits. I want to know what I can get up beside my own. Yes. But it's then brought that real clear at a time when women had no rights.
They had no property they had nothing. When a woman a girl was born into a family, it was such a disgrace that it was expected of the man to take that newborn baby out into the desert and bury her alive in the burning sand and they used to do it. Did you know that that's one
First things Islam forbid,
is this kind of genocide and these little things?
another thing, that if a little girl was orphaned, and inherited any property whatsoever, animals tans, whatever it might be, would go to her, because she can't have any rights anyway, any guy could come along and say I claim her as my wife,
my two year old girl, three year old girl.
And that way you could take her property, because women are not allowed to own property.
chapter four, reading the very beginning of chapter four, telling the believers not to take the orphans property and mix it up with their own. And this is the verse that they leave out and they tell you about the four wives, because it's right. If you don't want to read that verse, because then it becomes real clear what it's saying.
Because it says, and it starts with with this conjunction, and what why don't you realize that there's a verse before that.
You walk up to me, you start with
the weather in the days
marry other women. What do you know, the women need to go back?
Because they were marrying these little bitty orphan girls. And it says it real quick. That's what it says. There it is.
Marry others of your choice, but never This is what it says. Now, if you don't, it'll make sense to think do they really are
and stops and makes that the limit? and says, if you can treat them all with the
otherwise married one, and check this out, that was totally unheard of at that time. Nobody ever heard of something like that, oh, limit on how many wives? Are you joking? And the men can run out and go?
More than four, which
wasn't an option. You couldn't keep more than four. And if you couldn't treat me, well, you couldn't keep the one.
So the limits is what came. And by the way, just in case you didn't know it. And I said, when I was on the Kevin TV channel yesterday, and I asked the post to say something I'm wrong. But I think you said yeah, that's exactly true. That was seventh century. And that was at the same time the Catholic Church convened the council, there was deciding whether or not a woman even had a soul.
Compared to wait before you get to a higher high horse about women's rights.
In 1940s, my mother was not allowed to buy property without my father's signature, she was not allowed to open a bank account without a signature, nor should you take out an insurance policy without a signature. And this continued in the 1960s.
start the Government
of Japan 1400 years ago, this showed women that they had absolute right to own property.
absolute right to decide whether to get married to reverse 19 or you believe not inherit women against your women and men. Clearly, you're not allowed to say I'm gonna take that won't give her No, you're not even
all of these things came step by step by step.
One time in one round, even to the people who later become good Muslims, they would all kill me. There's just too much. It came over 23 years. And even then some of the people were like, Whoa, but eventually gave him because the biggest rule was worship one God, once you start worshiping one God, and you understand that other things start to fall into place, if you really believe in God, and you're really understanding these commandments, they need to change by the way.
Fourth Commandment is not is not
the fourth commandment, and it's in the same in the Koran is your parents, your parents, your parents, they have so much rights on.
Fifth Commandment, Thou shalt not kill, and they have to do in order not to kill your children. It says they don't take it lightly. It's prevented. However, chapter five, verse 34.
Ever takes an innocent life. It's as though they killed all of humanity. But whoever saves in this environment has to be saved all of humanity does the teaching.
Don't be afraid of it wrong. Don't be afraid of a lot. Don't be afraid. Be afraid of crazy people, regardless of what they claim to believe. That's what you want to watch out for.
And don't worry about is the easy way to understand everything. Don't just listen to what somebody, watch.
And that's how you learn. Makes sense.
Somebody told me one time
somebody told me one time said, All I know is telling the truth. I said, I was looking right now he would read back against it. All that means is,
you got one here, it says, Can you tell the audience about Jesus in Judas commerce? And how something about being a twin? And the answer is no, I can't.
what you're referring to is something that really we don't have a proof for. It's something that somebody talked about. It's an idea that some people have an incident in the place, or the time to bring up something like that. I will tell you the word commerce though, is from Arabic, and it means arm or twin. And suddenly we have a theory about Jesus and a twin brother that is like that, but let's don't get into that right now. Okay.
So the primary use of the word prophet in the Bible means seer,
or person who has knowledge of future events.
Okay, I'm sorry, but that is not what it is in Aramaic.
So the rest of your question won't work, but I'll read it anyway. But you made a supposition. What it means, in English, yes, you go to the English dictionary and look it up, you can do that you can find this you're one who knows. Because in fact, if you read what Jesus said, I'm sorry, but you have your book, it clearly states in there that he doesn't know.
And he's telling me he doesn't know that you're saying he's not a prophet, he said he was a prophet.
So don't make more contradictions.
Question, did Muhammad predict the future like prophets in the Bible? And the answer there is, even those prophets who predicted only did so after they got revelation from God, go back and read the Bible. And the same is true of Muhammad. He said, I don't know the future, except when of our giving some revelation about something that would take place. And he repeated that. That's all. The clear proof is one time a man can do them, actually, it starts like this.
The propaganda piece of the plan was telling his companions ask me some questions because he wanted to talk to them about rules and things and it's time, and they will learn. And it gives them as
they were shy, then a man showed up all of a sudden, now in a small village in the desert, and somebody shows up, and it says, His clothes were exceedingly white. And His hair was exceedingly black means he didn't
have travel. You know, he was, and he put his gun on the ground in front of him and put his knees to his knees.
And he said, What is this one?
And when providentially we said, You spoke to troops. They were shocked, who's this guy come in here and just ask the question and act like he's gonna verify. Then he asked me what his belief was. He then asked him what his sincerity in worship, Exxon, we don't have a word for that. I think he's done. He answered, No. And I'm coming to this one. Then he said, and when is the our meaning when is the last day?
Listen to his response is one of the most famous of all the teachers among almost everyone knows how many Muslims in here in North Carolina, okay.
At that point, he said to the questioner, the one being asked, does not know any more than one asked him? I don't know. You don't know what either, he said. But the signs are when the slave gives birth to the master.
And you see the poor Arabs competing with each other, to build tall buildings in the desert.
That's one of the most famous of all of his teachings in the musical today, the children feel their parents want to do is you know, before you answer think Bart Simpson, South Park
and our arrows Kuwait, Dubai,
Saudi Arabia, Bahrain or
competing to build tall buildings in the desert. I'm from Texas, by the way, and I know how land works when you got a big spread. You don't build building up you go. Chicken. Yeah. Why don't you go taller. And so I was standing in Riyadh taking pictures of these tall buildings for an article I was reading. And I did not think that this was in gender.
remember looking at the
board, so high up there.
But the guy is building it right next to another building, just like it
is finished, and it's totally empty. Big signs for nice police. Nobody's making the
empty building here and the building, they're there. Why are you building this one?
To make it taller.
That was his rules.
So I think we're
getting closer every day.
But he didn't ever claim to know the future. God knows the future. But prophecies? Yes, he did. He told us a lot of things. I'll give you one you might have
one of his very long.
But he was talking about in the last days, people's extremities would speak to them.
His time 14 years ago, they'd never heard of cell phones.
But not to watch yesterday's movie coming up. How many people in their cars are sitting there with their extremities right against their ears?
Yes, you know, and they look what
he said their side will inform them about what's going on in their house while they are away.
patrons have a digital readout. bring home a loaf of bread. We're out of milk cable guys here.
I'm not making it up. It's in the books.
And he said he will communicate with the animals in the sea.
Are we trying to communicate with porpoises?
I'll ask you Does that sound like a profit?
Check it out.
But thank you for giving me a chance to go on that rant.

equal. I said, Okay. And I read the verse to him, I said, the men are responsible for the women and their security and their maintenance and their upkeep and the over the expenses and give them the gifts and the golden silver there. I repeated it for you. And the women were going,
who would like to change that?
No, because it means essentially, ladies,
what's mine is mine.
And we've chosen
and then explains why because he gave the man more ability to do that.
But for this,
because of this, now, the woman is going to be obedient to a lot, and she's going to be a good wife. That's what it says,
is very clear about this subject. So it's not evil, but it's another example. And for new Muslim ladies, especially if we have any new Muslims last year. Anybody here within the last 12 months came to Islam?
You probably know it already. But yes, it bears repeating. Because you've come out of a mentality where women are being told SP was equal sometimes equals man is good is equity, because it could be better.
After you enter this loan, you will talk about saw that it's important for you to pray. How many times a day is the same for men and women? Yes, five times a day, yes or no? Yes. Yes. How many days? One every day? Wait a minute.
Wait a minute. No, no, no. During their monthly cycle, that's how you say, during the cycle, the woman must not pray. And she doesn't pick up those days. Don't change that, ladies know,
Ramadan, and it's 29 or 30 days, depending on the moon. Yes.
She does not pass in those same days. And she makes the note of those. And then in other days of the year, she didn't make it up. She's smart. She was cool.
Yeah, you want to change that?
harsh pilgrimage, everyone has to do that. Yes, makes a way for them to go. But for the woman, if she doesn't have someone to attend to her and take care of her in the house.
She doesn't have her father or brother or something, because she is not expected to go our own and perform this pilgrimage without having proper care.
Again, this is called gender equity, not gender equality. There are some other things too, they're pretty interesting. And I'll just give you one and then we've got to get back to the program because this is not about women's rights. But in Islam, it is clear a man when his parents died, receives one of the brothers that gets one of that he gets a half of
whatever's there. And inheritance, whereas a woman it says she gets one over three, only a third.
Is that fair?
Whether or not you want
to go back, the man has to spend on the women and it didn't mean just the wives. A man has responsibility to take care of his mother until she dies.
If the father dies, he has to take care of his mother.
And he has to take care of his sisters. If they don't have a husband, the man
his daughters. And of course,
he has to take care of all of them are his money that he inherits.
But the woman doesn't have to give a coin of any of barling dinar, a yen.
rupee doesn't have to give them anything, because she's not expected to do them.
So all of a sudden, it's real fast, you do the math, you don't have to do any math. And obviously she gets,
he's got to spend it all.
for Muslims today.
So if you live next door, you're an apartment down the road, whatever. And you said, you know, this lady, she has to work, she's got a job.
But Islam in general, she had
never told her she had to do anything, except to be a good wife, and a good mother to the children. That is, that's big Islam, to be a good wife, to be a good daughter to parents.
And to be a good one,
good exam, it's very important to be a good example to, and it says this.
But nowhere in there does shift work, get a job.
And she wants to do something. And she's able to take care of the things at home. And she would like to do it.
On the way over here today, my own daughter is going to be aware of where she's wanting to go to college. And we were just talking about some of the things about that. And she's pretty good. Nobody said she can go. But when I was in India, it was on the front page of the newspaper over there saying that there was some call multiples, which means, you know, elders in the community, were given a family are heartbroken because they want to put their daughter in college.
They said it's not right, the woman should be educated.
But what did they get it wrong? They got it from new traditions. Because the Indian people said the same thing, the ones who are the Hindu religion or whatever, it is essentially the same thing. Once a woman knowing going out here getting all that anyway, let's not replace.
as good means.
So when human beings do something and attribute to their religion, all you got to do is go check it out. That's why before you leave here today, I want to suggest
I think we've got some study materials in the back. And we don't even get from our websites. But I want you to get a copy of the translation of the Scripture.
It'll say cron on it, but we already discussed this number. But just get it and read it and see some things for some questions. I have no doubt. Sometimes because translators are stuck with words that they have come up with. Sometimes they get the wrong idea themselves. And sometimes we just don't understand what God really wants from us. But in any case, you're gonna have questions, and I'm watching. Please, please, as
just ask. And you can start there. That's one of my websites. Just ask islam.com if you don't write to me personally, write to me at SHKYUSU yahoo.com I'll give you three VA. s HYU su F.
Okay. We take a break.
It's over. Finish it off. You're the moderator.
By the way, guys,
I really meant when I said that, that we're all came from Adam, and I love all of us as human beings, especially with a lot of brothers and sisters who believe there's really one God and I hope all of us get guided you can go to Paradise zombie
