brothers and sisters in Islam and humanity as salaam alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuhu Welcome to the show, Ramadan, a date with Dr. Zakir. I'm your host, as usual. And today we're discussing very important topic dour to non Muslims. Dr. Zakir Assalamu alaikum warahmatullahi wabarakatuh cat while it was stolen by
Dr. Zakir it's a topic that you and I
loved very much together. And I know that of course you are an authority in the world about it Alhamdulillah by the grace and mercy of Allah subhanho wa Taala I prefer to call him a full force student shala Islamic compatibility I know a lot of the viewers would consider you to be an authority on the topic doubter non Muslims. And I think that's why it's an incredibly important show that we're going to start today, I'd like to ask you the first question, which is first and foremost in any scientific analysis of any topic, which is to define the topic, define the term, dour.
And to from our last show on Islam. How does that differ from Tao Alhamdulillah wa salatu salam ala rasulillah Allah Allah was ibH been ama but I was Billahi min ash shaytani r rajim Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim. Rubbish surely sadly, we psyllium Li wahala looked at me lasagna coli.
As far as the word Tao is concerned,
when anyone use the word doubt, especially the people from the subcontinent, India and Pakistan, the moment they hear the word doubt, immediately, they start thinking of Mutton Biryani or chicken biryani.
They start thinking of a lunch party.
That does not mean a lunch party dava or darvid means an invitation.
And today, we will not be discussing about an invitation to a lunch party or dinner party. We are discussing about doubted Islam, the invitation to Islam. And an invitation can only be given to an outsider,
so Dawa, that is the reason can be only done to a non Muslim. When we give information about Islam to a non Muslim, inviting him towards Islam. That big word used is Tao.
And the meaning of Arabic word this law is to repair.
It means to improve. So when we speak about Islam, pro Muslim, giving you more information about Islam, the more appropriate word is Islam, though both these words are interchangeable. But if you want to specifically the word Issa is used when we speak about Islam to a Muslim, giving you more information and Dawa is a word used when we speak about Islam to a non Muslim inviting him toward the fold of Islam. Okay, right. Thank you for that definition. That's a very good start in Sharla. Is that our that if, as you said inviting non Muslims, is it compulsory? Is it a Sunnah or what is it? As far as data is concerned? For Muslim, it is a foreigner. It's complicity. Allah says in the
Quran in surah alleman. Chapter number three was the 110 kwentong Cara multinucleate linas or the Muslims are the best of people evolved for mankind. Allah has given us an honor is calling us head oma. There is no honor, without responsibility. Whenever there is honor, it is always followed up with responsibility. For example,
in the school, a principal has got more honor than a teacher.
A teacher has got more honor than a clerk. Similarly, the principal has got more responsibility than a teacher.
teacher has got more responsibly than a clerk. There is no honor without responsibility. In this was a last minute Allah is giving us Muslims and calling us a kerama the best of people, don't you think we have responsibility? The reply is given the same verse, Allah says that morona will model for women COVID Amina Bella, because the enjoying what is good and we forbid what is wrong and we believe in Allah. The reason Allah is calling us Hara oma is because we enjoy what is right and we forbid what is wrong and we believe in Allah. If you do not enjoy what is right, and do not forbid what is wrong, that is to be unfit to be scholars can be unfit to be called as Muslims, it is a
fourth, it is compulsory that every Muslim should go and there are umpteen number of us in the Quran, and several say Hadith which proved that dice furred time doesn't permit us to give a talk. And I've given a talk on this subject about destruction in detail. I'll just mention one more tour of the Quran. Allah says in Surah Al Azhar chapter 103, was the 123 well as in in Sinaloa vehicles, in London lives in Amman, Emilio solly, hottie but also bill hacker to wasabi server, which means by the token of time, man is very in a state of floss, except those who have faith, those who do righteous deeds and those exhort people to look at those legs are people to patient in facilities,
this Surah Al Azhar, according to the mam Shafi, he said that if this surah was revealed, it was sufficient as a guidance to the whole of humanity. And it is also called as raheny Jad, the path to salvation for any human being to go to Jenna, you have to fulfill four criteria. Number one is a man. Number two is a melancholy heart, that righteous deeds. Number three is mythos will be inviting people to church that is dour, and will also be sub inviting people to patient in pursuance, if any one of the four criteria if they're missing, under normal circumstances, that human beings do not go to China. He may be a very good Muslim, he may be offering five times Salah, he may be giving Zakat,
he may have gone for Hajj. But if a Muslim does not do Dawa, according to Surah Al Azhar, he should not unregenerate.
Under normal circumstances, if Allah wants to forgive and then put you in Jannah that is our last prerogative. But Allah says in the Quran, as we discussed in the last episode, in chapter four, verse 48, and it's written inside chapter four was the 116 that if Allah pleases, he may forgive anything, but the sin of shall not forgive.
For person has committed she has strayed away far. So if allow us to forgive you for don't do Dawa and then put you in Jannah that's Allah prerogative. But under normal circumstances, doing Dawa is first for any human being to go to China. Not only Dubai is required all for a quiet Eman only Davina Tigre region. All four are required Eman, righteous deeds, but there was a block that's dava and but also be sobra. inviting people to patients and constancy. Therefore dava is further on every Muslim. I think that's very clear. Now leading on from the definitions of the terms and the fact that we know it's now compulsory upon us. What are the best methods during these testing times,
let's say for Muslims, I mean, I don't know if there's any more or less testing than it was 100 years ago, to be honest, but because I wasn't alive then. But I think that we need to know during this particular time with these particular attacks on Islam that you see prevalent in the media, what are the best methods that we can utilize in order to give Dawa to non Muslims? There are many strategies and various methodologies that can be used for doing Dawa. Some are less effective, while the others are more effective. The most common method used is that whenever Muslim meets non Muslim, he speaks 100 good things the word Islam.
Even if the non Muslim agrees
with the 100 points that have been mentioned to him regarding Islam, yet, he will have a few negative points at the back of his mind. You will say Ah, you're the same Muslim who is a fundamentalist Ah, the same Muslim was a terrorist. You are the same Muslim who married more than one woman or you are the people who subjugate the woman by keeping up behind the veil. These few negative points at the back of his mind will prevent him from accepting the beauty of Islam.
That is the reason whenever I meet a non Muslim, I asked him upfront,
asked me asking the first question, what do you feel is wrong with Islam? With your limited knowledge, but the right or wrong? What do you feel is wrong with Islam and I make him comfortable. He can
criticize Islam, you can attack Islam, you can criticize the Koran, and I make him comfortable that he can ask any question. What does he feel is wrong with the religion of Islam? And after I make him comfortable, he poses about four or five questions. And more than past 15 years that I've been in the field of Dawa, I've realized that there are about 20 most common questions that are asked by the non Christians. And when we post to a non Muslim, what does he feel is wrong with Islam? He asks four or five questions, and invariably it falls amongst these 20 most common questions. Now, how have these 20 most common questions come about? They have come about in the mind of the non Muslim
depending upon how the media portrays Islam.
Today we have on the international media and international newspapers, international magazines, international radio broadcast stations, internet satellite channels, we find that there is virulent propaganda about Islam, they are bombarding misinformation about Islam. So depending upon how the media portrays Islam, these 20 common questions arise in the mind of a non Muslim.
A couple of decades earlier, these 20 questions are different.
Maybe a couple of decades later, these 20 common questions will change depending upon how the media portrays Islam. These questions arise in the mind of a non Muslim. And I always say that if every Muslim knows the logical reason, and the scientific reason regarding the answers to these questions, with the quotation from Quran deed and other scriptures, even if he cannot convert the non Muslim at least he can neutralize the animosity which is there in the mind of the non Muslim, it will be the best tool and I've written a book on this topic, answers to most common questions that have been on Muslims. And if a person memorizes this inshallah, he will be able to remove the animosity from the
minds of non Muslims regarding Islam. inshallah, that's excellent. And may it continue to be a benefit all of this knowledge which you've handled, being able to move forward in the field of dour and sharp
according to your knowledge of the subject, our what is the most important verse in the Quran, which gives instructions about passing the message of Islam to non Muslims? As I mentioned earlier, there are hundreds of verse in the Quran which speak about Dawa. Many verses, give them a trilogy.
But according to me, the master key for doing our non Muslim is through the elimination, chapter number three was 264. We save good
SEO people have the book, dialogue, electoral meeting savoir imbiah anabaena, come, come to come in terms as asking you which is the first term
Allah Illallah that we worship none but when Allah subhanaw taala Allah Lucia, he says that we associate the partners with him, Well, if he's about to abandon Alibaba, Manila, that we erect not among ourselves, loads and pages other than Allah find tavano if then they turn back frequently, Shadow city bear witness, Vietnam, Muslim moon, that we are Muslim is bothering Allah subhanaw taala. This was of the Quran, though it's addressed to the alligator, it can be used for any non Muslim. It says dialogue electoral meetings. So why MBA anabaena Come come to come in terms as when you visit the first term, Atlanta with a Lula that we worship none but Allah. So the most important
thing that we have to speak to the non Muslim is what concept of concept of oneness, Allah subhanaw taala we can start the topic, asking him that what does he feel is wrong with Islam? And what are things that interests him, but your main focus should be, you have to come to the main point of avoiding and believing when Allah subhanaw taala
unless you don't come to tawheed Tao will be useless. You can start with other things, scientific aspect, and other things that interest him, literature, maybe history, but unless you do not prove to him about forehead, the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala that was abused this you have to prevent him from doing sharing. Therefore I call this verse of the Quran as the master key for Nava. Otherwise, there are many other verses including student Nell chapter number 16, verse number 125, he says, Oh Allah subhanaw taala Walmart has eaten hasna which are the ability to invite all the way of the Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching and argue with them and reason with them in the
race, their best, most crucial so your last monitor tells us that when you Rudaba yes we will take minus now in ways that best nutritious
how can you give the power to a Christian and prove to him that the,
the term tawheed, or the oneness of Allah, as I understand it, is the correct way for him or her to follow. As I said, we have to use the master key to let him run Jeopardy to a $64 electoral meeting. So why MBA anabaena Come, come to come in terms as a senior, which is the first term
within the law, that we worship them but Allah subhanaw taala.
Whenever will meet a Christian,
I'll tell him, that Islam is the only non Christian faith which makes it an article of faith to believe in Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. No Muslim is a Muslim, if he does not believe in Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. We believe that Jesus Christ peace be upon him, was one of the mightiest messengers of Allah subhanaw taala. We believe that he was the Messiah transcended Christ. We believe that he was born miraculously without any human intervention. We believe that he healed those born blind lepers with God's permission. We believe that you give life the day with God's permission, the Muslim and the Christian, that work together. Or one may ask, Where is the parting
of ways, the parting of ways is that most of the Christians, they believe that Jesus Christ peace be upon him, he was Almighty God, and He claimed divinity. In fact, if you read the Bible, there is not a single unequivocal statement. In the complete Bible, where Jesus Christ has been appointed himself says, that I am God awaited worship me. I would like to repeat, there is not a single unequivocal statement, not a single unambiguous statement. In the complete Bible with Jesus Christ peace be upon himself says that I am God always worship me. In fact, if you read the Bible, Jesus Christ peace be upon himself says, In the Gospel of john, chapter number 14, verse number 20, my father's kept an
eye, gospel of john, chapter number 10, was number 29. My father is good in all, Gospel of Matthew, chapter number 12, verse number 28, I cast out devils with the Spirit of God, Gospel of Luke, chapter 11, verse number 20, I have the finger of God cast out devils, gospel of john, chapter number five, verse number 30, I can have my own self to nothing, as I hear, I judge and my judgment is just for a secret my will with the will of my Father, anyone who say they think not my will, but the will of Almighty God, he's a Muslim, Jesus Christ, peace be upon him according to the Bible or the Muslim. And further mentioned in the book of Acts, chapter number two, was number 22. Even of
Israel, listen to this, Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God amongst you, by wonders and miracles which God did by him and your witness to a man approved of God, by wonders and miracles and signs which God did by him and your ministry.
And when Jesus Christ peace be upon him, was asked, as mentioned the Gospel of Mark, chapter number 12, was number 29. When he was asked that which is the first of the commandments, he repeated, verbatim what was said earlier by Moses, peace be upon him in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter six, verse number four, and he says, Shema, Israel ELO
yo Israel, the Lord our God is One Lord.
Okay, Mashallah Jazakallah hair for the answer. And what of giving down to one of our Hindu brothers and sisters are fed our Hindus are concerned. Again they say masterkey swimrun chapter three verse 264, tala electoral meetings, so why imbiah anabaena Come, come to come in terms as per se ni, which is the first term Atlanta de la, that the worship, then, but when last month
when we asked
any common Hindu, how many gods Do you believe in? Some say three? Some say 100. Some is 1000, while others will say 23 crows 330 million. But when we asked this question to a learned Hindu, who's well versed with his religious scriptures, he will say that a Hindu should believe and worship only one God.
But the common Hindu, he believes in the philosophy of pantheism.
pantheism means the community believes that everything is God, that He is God, the sun is God, the moon is God, the human being you've got, the snake is gone. What we Muslims believe that everything is God's God with an apostrophe s, everything belongs to God. The sun belongs to God, the moon belongs to God, that He belongs to God. They mean belongs to God, this thing belongs to God. So the major difference between the Muslims and the Hindus is the common Hindu believes that everything is
God, what we Muslims believe it everything is God's God with an apostrophe S. So major difference is apostrophes. If we can solve this difference of Apostrophe S, the Hindus and the Muslims will be united. How do you do it? tallow electril mitten Sawa imbiah anabaena Come, come to come in terms ask us in you. When we read the scriptures of the Hindus.
It's mentioned in the channel your Punisher
chapter number six. section number two was number one. It comes with a team. God is only one without a second.
It's mentioned in the Sweetwater Upanishads chapter number six was number nine. Not just a passage, Jonathan, it's a deeper of him.
There are no lords.
He has got no parents. Almighty God has good no superior. He has got no mother, he has got to father. It's mentioned in the pseudo pseudo Punisher chapter number four was number 19. Not test see but the mastery of that God, there is no prathima. prathima is a Sanskrit word, which means Almighty God has got no images. He has got no photograph, you have got no sculpture. He has got no painting.
Almighty God is without any patina. And the most common book read by the Hindus
is Bhagavad Gita. It's mentioned Bhagavad Gita. Chapter number seven was number 20. All those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires, they have worshipped demigods. That means those are materialistic people. They worship the gods. In some of the commentaries, it says idol worship.
And amongst all the, in the Scriptures,
the most sacred, the most authentic at the Vedas, there are four Vedas rig with a druid some way then on top of it.
It's mentioned edged with chapter number 32 was number three, not the master of that God, there is no prathima. But the man I mentioned earlier, means Almighty God has got no images. He has got no sculpture, he has got no photograph, he has got no painting. All these do not belong to Almighty God. And it's mentioned in the ledger with chapter 14 verse number eight, Almighty God is imageless and pure expansion digital by chapter 14 verse number nine, under provision thi Yeah, awesome, beautiful, pasty and Tatma Sanskrit word, meaning, darkness, provision theme is entering, it means they are entering darkness, those who worship as somebody as somebody with the natural things like
fire, water, air, and there was continuous, they are entering more in darkness, those that worship there's somebody you're somebody means the creative things like table, chair,
So the Word says, those who worship the natural thing like fire, water, air, they are entering darkness, they are entering when darkness, those who worship the creative things. And amongst the way, that's the other way, there is a term of it. It's mentioned at avid book number 20. him number 58 was number three, they must be verily prayed as Almighty God. And amongst all the Vedas, the most authentic most sacred is the reveal. It's mentioned rigveda book number one, him them 164 Muslim 46 a concert, we promote 72 this one, God is one, but sages call him by a variety of names. That means there are various attributes given to Almighty God. And in rigveda alone in Book number to him,
number one, there are no less than 33 attributes given to Almighty God.
It further mentioned in regrade, book number eight him number one was number one, much thinner. This answered. Worship Him alone. The one true God. It's mentioned required book number six, and number 46. was 16. Yeah, it musty
there's only one God praise Him alone. And the Brahma sutra of Hindu Vedanta is a cumbersome, dirty, nasty, nasty kitchen. But when he was running, he knew he and he is Robin, he is only one God, not a second one. Not at all, not at all, not in the least bit. So in this way, by doing comparative study, coming to common terms, we can convince a Hindu from his scriptures, that they should only believe in one God, that's tawheed and get them closer to Allah subhanaw taala. And for more details, I've given a talk on similarities between Islam and Hinduism. And I've proved the various similarities about various aspects and that way you can
Based on the walls of the Quran, tala electril meeting so why imbiah anabaena Come, come to come in terms of nothing you I just spoke about the major term, the most important that is.
Dr. Zakir, it's almost difficult to believe that Hindus are not worshipping Allah alongside us. It really is from what you've just said, Savannah, I don't know how many verses you quoted there, but it's unbelievable. I'm sure there's many more indications with the invaders and the Gita, etc, that we can draw upon and help our brothers and sisters in humanity to come back to the right religion of the fitrah of Islam in sha Allah, is Allah here. Dr. Zakir what is the second most important aspect of Islam that we should convey to the non Muslims when giving Dawa after tawheed the second most important aspect of Islam is very solid, talking about the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad
peace be upon the moment you prove to him about the existence of Allah subhanaw taala our shadows, Laila Illa, Allah Muhammad Rasul Allah, there is no God but Allah and Prophet Muhammad peace be with the Messenger of Allah. So after you convince them what the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala Take him away from *can idol worship, then you have to prove to him about the last and final messenger prophet noms la Salaam and I've given the talk on Mohammed Salah Salaam in the various religious scriptures. Time will not permit us to speak in detail I'll just give a few references not mentioned the court does the references how to prove to the Jews and the Christians about most of them. If you
don't estimate the prophecy of masala Salaam, as mentioned the Old Testament, I'll just give the references details you can go to our website Arab dotnet.
The professor Musleh seldom is mentioned in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter number 18 was number 18. In the book of Deuteronomy, chapter number 18, verse number 19, in the book of Isaiah, chapter 29, verse number 12, Song of Solomon, chapter number five verse number 16, the name of Prophet masala Salaam is mentioned in the Old Testament. In the Song of Solomon chapter five, verse 16, is also prophesied in the New Testament. There are many I'll just mention the main ones.
Prophet masala Salaam is prophesied in the Gospel of john chapter number 14, verse number 16. In the Gospel of john chapter 15, verse number 26, in the Gospel of john chapter 16, verse number seven, in the Gospel of john chapter 16, verse number 12 to 14 and there are many prophecies that for the Quran says, In surah chapter number seven was the 157 day follow the unlettered Prophet, who is mentioned in the scripture in the law and the gospel.
And Allah also says in Surah, chapter number 61, Muslim six, that Jesus Christ peace be upon him, the son of Mary, he said to the man Israel, I am sent from Allah subhanaw taala as a messenger to when Israel
confirming the law that came before me, and giving glad tidings of messenger to come, whose name shall be Amman, and we know amad peace be upon him was under the name of Muslim masala
regarding how to convince the Hindus which are the third largest religious people in the world, Hinduism numbers first is Christianity. Second is Islam Hinduism and following but naturally the Assam number one again if you read the Hindu scriptures there are hundreds of verses in various different Hindu scriptures which speak about masala Salaam. I just mentioned the main important one I just references masala Salam has been prophesied in vicia, Parana, whatever 303 a day three sroka five to seven. He's also prophesied in Odisha Brahma Baba three can be three a day three stroke a standard 27. His prophesied in the top sector, which is a term of it, book number 20. In number 127
was the one to 14 is prophesied in the term of it, book number 20. him number 21 was number six, as well as a throwaway book number 20. him number 21 was number seven. He's also prophesied in liquid book number one, him number 53 verse number nine.
And you can go on and on giving references one important prophecy is the prophecy of Kalki Alta,
which is in the Kalki Purana chapter number two was number five, Muslim seven Muslim nine was number 11 was number 15. And it gives details about the name of the father of Prophet Muhammad. It is mentioned as Vishnu Yosh if you translate the servant of God, that's Abdullah which is the name of the father of musallam. His mother's name has given us Amina.
That is one was peaceful. It's mentioned he'll be born in the city of peace talks about Moksha reborn in the home of the person who's the chief of the city that is the family of
Qureshi. He left for close companions talking with him and on and on.
The angels have been the battlefield the full talk I've given him masala Salaam in the Hindu scriptures alone. So this was in short How can convince, then you can convince the Buddhists that most of us are mentioned the Buddhist scriptures in the Parsi scriptures and the other scriptures of the world. The first is tauheed. Number two is Mama selasa Salah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam Subhan Allah, lots and lots of information, obviously in that answer. And I think later on in the month, we'll be dealing with some of the other religions as you've already mentioned, we're going to be dealing with Christianity and then Hinduism and the other religions. how best to convince our
brothers and sisters in humanity, regardless of race, color, cultural creed, actually, how to come back to worshipping Allah subhanho wa Taala. May Allah make it easy for them and guide them all. inshallah, you've already mentioned, chapter number three, verse 64. Regarding that being the key stone or the cornerstone for giving doubter non Muslims, how can we use this first to give dour to the atheist?
There will facilitate non safe dialogue will occur within a banner binnacle come to come in terms aspirin as in you, which is the first time I land up within the law,
that you worship none but Allah, how can we use this master key for it? Is it the master key it should be applicable to all the non Muslims irrespective whether he believes in religion believes in a god or not? How can we Dawa with this was to notice, the first thing I'll do when I meet an atheist is I'll congratulate
me wonder that why am I congratulate atheist? The reason is because most of the human beings, they are doing blind belief. They're following their fathers and forefathers blindly. He's a Christian, referred to as a Christian. He's a Hindu or father is a Hindu. Many Muslims are Muslims book a father is Muslim. Here is a theist is thinking his father may be coming from religious background. But he says he does not believe in such a God who's weak,
who feels hungry, who can be killed. So he does not believe in God. The reason I congratulate the atheist is because he has said, the first part of the Islamic Shahada, Islamic creed, La Ilaha, there is no God, the only thing you have to do is Illa Allah, but Allah, which I shall do inshallah,
for the other non Muslims, I have a double job. First, I have to prove to them, the god they're worshipping is wrong. And then I have to prove to them about the concept of Allah subhanaw taala here, half my job is done. He already has said there is no God. Laila, so you already said the first part of the Islamic creed Islamic shatta Laila, so half my job is done, the only thing you have to do is the second half that Illallah and then after that, Mama Rasulullah that Muslim some of the messenger and I have given the talk on is the Quran, God's word.
And in this lecture, I showed various ways, how you could convince to an atheist about the existence of Allah subhanaw taala time will not permit us to go into the details, but you can prove to him scientifically,
I just mentioned a couple of points. But if you ask an atheist, and show him an equipment, which no one in the world has seen, and asked him, that, who is the first person who will be able to tell you the mechanism of the equipment. After thinking he will tell you that the creator
summit is Missy the manufacturer, some may say the inventor, some may say the maker, whatever we say, it will be somewhat similar. Just keep this at the back of your mind.
Then ask the question 20 to 80 of the people who believe in science, there will be links to Allah subhanaw taala when after it is how did our universe come into existence? So he will tell me that a couple of decades earlier, a few decades earlier, there were a couple of scientists who describe how did the universe come into existence, and they call it the big bang for the primary nebula. Then there's a secondary separation. It gave rise to galaxies, which gave rise to stars, Sun and the Earth on which we live.
When we asked him, when we come to do this, he will say that two years back 40 years back, so I will tell him that what you're talking about the Big Bang is already mentioned in the Quran. Within 1400 years ago in Saudi Arabia, Chapter 21 was number 20, which says Avila Mira Latina Afro, do not the unbeliever see anessa mabati will add other garlic rotten effect nama the devil and the earth were joined together and we closed them asunder, just for talking about the Big Bang is already mentioned the Quran 14 years ago who could have mentioned this? It's okay, maybe it's a fluke, no problem, don't argue. That's the next question. That what is the shape of the earth in which we live? So he
will tell me that it's very cool. When did you come to know about this? He will tell there's destiny in science 50 years back 100 years back 20 years back
He was the first person who discovered the world was spherical, was the person when he sailed around the Earth in 1579. The Quran mentions 14 years ago
in Salinas yet, chapter number 79, verse number 30. What are the BBs alaknanda and thereafter we've made the earth x shape that will be put the haha one of its meaning and expands the other is an X shape. And we know today that the world is not completed on like a ball, it is geo spherical in shape, it is done from the pole. And the word the haha does not refer to a normal egg differs to the egg of an ostrich, which is just ridiculous. Imagine the Quran mentions about the geo spherical shape of the earth 14 years ago, when we asked who could have mentioned this? It is so maybe your Prophet onsala salam was very intelligent man. Don't argue with him. ask the next question. The
light of the moon is its own light or reflected light. So he will tell me that previously we thought the light of the moon was its own light. It is recently we have come to know 50 years back 100 years back 200 years back the light of the moon. If not its own net, it's a reflected light. Then we can tell him that Quran mentioned 14 years ago in South Africa, Chapter 25 was number 61. That the light of the moon is borrowed light is described as nor Amane. It's a reflection of light. Who could I mentioned this 14 years ago? and so on and so forth. You can talk about biology, about embryology, about genetics, about geology, about what to cycle, on and on. There are more than 1000 verses of
the Quran. We speak about science.
And every time you mentioned a scientific fact, you ask him the question, who would have mentioned this 1400 years ago, he'll come back to the original answer. The Creator, the manufacturer, the maker, the inventor, this creator, this manufacturer or this inventor, we call him as Allah subhanaw taala. Through the help of science and Glorious Quran, we can prove to the atheist the existence of a
very convincing answers there indeed, and we need to learn how to really have the courage and tenacity go out there and speak those scientific proofs from the Quran Shama. So, Doctor, there must be some other important aspects that we need to
pass on to non Muslims. Could you tell us a little bit more about that, these two are the most important aspects which no one will dispute number one, number two is musallam. Remember the further opinion which is the third which is the fourth and the fifth, the third is life after that,
about salvation. Then you can talk about Salah,
talk about Zakat, you can talk about Ramadan fasting you can talk about Hajj. In short, when we speak to non Muslim we should first try and find out what interest
interest literature, literature is interested in science to talk about science. So, to begin with, after 10 remove his misconception, we try and find out what interests him. And depending upon what is interesting for the scientist, I will talk about current and modern science and try and convince him in the field which he likes. And then come to talk he is I look at the other aspects. sha Allah, Allah hair, what are the various means by which Tao can be done with non Muslims. The various means that today a person can use after science and technology has advanced is one is giving dour life one to one basis or giving a talk in public. There's a common way in terms of using means we can use the
print media. That is print media's periodical, non periodical, non periodical booklets the teacher amphlett periodical magazine magazines newsletters are the daily weekly monthly, bi monthly, quarterly yearly
besides print media we have the audio media in us an audio cassettes or CDs and that we can use on the Walkman while walking can use in the offices you can convey the message of Islam by giving lectures on the audio tapes CDs etc. that can be used besides on individual level can use in offices Can you be gathering in parties and functions can use on radio broadcast stations on a wider scale.
The third is the video media the video cassettes, videotapes, CDs, DVDs
on the largest scale, whether it be the cable TV, whether it be satellite channels
and the fourth is internet or the information technology, you know through the website to the emails. So these are besides the individual dow and the public lecture there are four different means of renown Okay,
Once again Dr. Zakir what are the various advantages and disadvantages of various means, on a path to giving power to normalcy each of these means has the advantage the advantage, for example, as far as retention is concerned.
Today, scientific research tells us that when a person reads something, a common human being, he retains 10% of what he has read.
When a person hears something, he retains approximately 20% of what he has heard.
When he sees something that the visual, he retains on average 30% of what he has seen. And if he hears and sees together, that is a video, or do we still together video tape, or CD, no video CD, on average, a human being retains 50%. So in terms of attention, the maximum power is the video audio video together, then it's only visual, then comes during and the last is only TD. As far as the advantage and disadvantage is concerned, the print media attention is 10%. It is portable,
you can carry in the train carrying the bus carry in your car guide anyway, it's easy for transportation.
But at a time, only one person reads it. Or sometimes someone is keeping maybe one or two that set three but the reach but thing is limited one at a time two at a time maximum.
But it's portable, you can guide anyway, and it is important will always remain important.
The next is the audio media in which the portability is less as compared to the print media as compared to the book of the pamphlet. But the Walkman that can be taken you can hear it in the cassette in the car, and the Walkman. But at a time,
either one can hear individually or group of people can hear it 510 if it's a gathering a few 100 can hear on the radio broadcast station millions can hear.
As far as the video media is concerned, again, it's less portable as compared to audio. You know, there are men that have come out there are no small television screens in the car in the buses and the planes
in terms of portability, it is less. But in terms of rich, it is much higher, not can reach cable TV, satellite channel millions. Lastly, the internet,
internet, again, individual person has to go on that site. That too you require an internet connection, you require a computer, it has its own limitation. But many people can access your site. It's easy for anyone to open a website, you don't require any money. It's very cheap, open, it wasn't going to website so you can spread information very easily take advantage disadvantage, any person who wants to slander or speak false thing easily can do it as print media to print a book request money to produce audio cassette or a video because it takes money. You're anyone without any finance, you can write anything a nonsense.
So it has the disadvantage or the advantage of personnel to spread Islam also you can spend it. So you have to make the right choice between the two. So these are the various advantages and disadvantage of the media. inshallah, according to you, what's the most effective means of giving Tao as I mentioned earlier, each means has advantage advantage. But if you ask me in terms of reach, in terms of cost effectiveness, I would say number one today is the selection. Each one has an advantage, it should continue. I'm not saying the other means should not continue. But in terms of reach.
As far as satellite channel is concerned, a person can reach millions of people. Because for a person to come for a public lecture, a non Muslim, he may feel uncomfortable coming in front of 1000s of people. If a person gives a talk, how many we can gather, and a few 100,000 few 1000 10,000 how many the largest gathering ever addressed is 1 billion people that's also once in a blue moon otherwise normally 100,000 people but on the satellite channel, you can reach millions of people or hamdulillah millions of people and on estimate 100 an hour on average piece TV is reaching about 70 million viewers at present and inshallah I think in this room not going to increase or will multiply
inshallah, from that the statistics about six months back, you know that throughout the world. Now we reach more than 200 countries. So what our have did in the past 15 years in the field of power that we did this piece TV in one year and hamdulillah the monitor has reached the message that has been conveyed is much more than what we did in the past 15 years. So the effectiveness of satellite channels much more and the cost effectiveness if you calculate the amount you spend, and divide it with the number of people watching, it is maybe 5% or less. It's less than
Then two cent per person a month which is absolutely cheap. Absolutely, therefore is the most effective animal. So how Allah is Allah hair doctors okay and I quit this crash course in dour during the month of Ramadan is the most useful. I'm sure the brothers and sisters out there certainly myself, brothers and sisters in Islam Jazakallah hair for listening, take benefit of all of this information you've been given and if you join us tomorrow inshallah we will be discussing the topic called the fasts, video and cafaro fasts. please do join us then. salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
