Good evening. Again, I'm a very strict follower of Brahmanism. But
I mean, I really like a lot of aspects in Islam. But is it necessary for me to convert into Islam to follow certain rules or, you know, following my own Brahmin religion, and then go ahead with those certain aspects, which I really like about Islam. I've seen lots of lectures of use or like,
the similarities between Islam and Hinduism, and various other lectures, but I really liked your talks a lot.
A good question. She said that she the strict follower of Romanism, but she likes many aspects of Islam. She's asking that can she follow these aspects of Islam, and yet, follow Brahmanism she has seen many of my talks. And she appreciates Mattox sister. First, let me tell you, that Islam, or becoming a muslim is not a label.
Islam, by definition means peace acquired by submitting a will to Almighty God. So any human being, who submit his or her will, to Almighty God, he or she is called the Muslim. Just by label mama Zakir Abdullah Sultan SHA care. That doesn't mean you become a Muslim or Fatima Asia. That doesn't make you a Muslim. Muslim means a person who submits a bill to Almighty God. So first, you have to find out what is
the commandment of Almighty God?
The sister said that she's a strict follow of Brahmanism.
And she likes many aspects of Islam. And she has seen many of my tapes, my lectures, including similarly some and Hinduism. If you have seen the sister, then my answer would be easier and easier for you to understand. If you have seen my cassette similarities between Islam and Hinduism, the talk which I gave, I think in the first
beef conference, and genetic
similarities between Islam Hinduism, Sister, if we analyze, even if you read the Hindu scriptures, Hindu scriptures to say
that you have to submit a will to Almighty God, but as I told you by the passage of time, all the previous scriptures, they have not been maintained in the pure form.
They have been interpolations they have been fabrications, that has been corruption, most of the scholars of all these religions, whether it be Hinduism, whether it be Christianity, whether it be Judaism, they agree that the scripture has not been maintained in the pure form.
And if you have heard my tapes, I told you initially mama that was the story told by the grandfather of origin, it contained 1000 shlokas. Then, you know, it kept on going down they they began 24,000 Show cars. Now there are more than 100,000 versus 100,000 shlokas. Who says this, The scholars of Marmara.
So by the passage of time, there's been interpolation that has been corruption, but all these scriptures in spite of being changed, yet they do contain the remnants of the word of Almighty God. And the basic of all the legend if you have heard my talks is that Almighty God is one
you have got no idols, you have no photograph. And all the religions preach that Almighty God is one and if you have heard my talk, I've said in many places Chandogya Upanishad chapter number six, section number two was number one, it come with a team, God is only one without a second and inserta Cetara Punisher chapter number four was summer 19. And graduate chapter material was number three, it says, not tested with the modesty of that God, there is no prathima there is no image but the man means image, photograph, painting, picture, sculpture, statue, I have that God there is no prathima there is no photograph, there is no painting, there is no picture, there is no sculpture, there is
no statue, there is no idol.
So all the scripture says on the oneness of Almighty God and the Brahma sutra of Hinduism, is it come from Delta nasty, nasty Kenshin Bhagwan aka Dussehra? Nahi nahi? No, he is Robina here, there's only one God not a second one not at all, not at all, not in the least bit.
Now coming to your major question,
that can you be a strict Brahmin and yet follow teachings of Islam sister by being a normal Brahmin and trying to become Muslim is difficult.
But if you're a strict Brahmin, strictly following the Vedas, then you have no option but to submit a will to God. If your average Brahmin who may be following something and not following the other thing, etc, then it's difficult for you to submit a will to God. But if you're a strict Brahmin strictly following the Vedas
You have to follow what I mentioned earlier, the three verses I quoted that you have to believe one God, you have to do no idol worship.
You have to believe that God is one he has no image you have got no photograph, he has got no statue. And if you read your scriptures, your scriptures mentioned about the coming of the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. And if you have seen my talk on similar Islam and Hinduism, and Hamas Allah some of the Hindu scriptures, I've mentioned in detail, that Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, as mentioned in the Scripture. So if you are a strict Brahmin, you have no option but believe there is one God he has got no images there got no ideas, and you also have to believe that Almighty God's last messenger final outta Kalki Altiris, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon
But when your Scripture say you have to follow the Kalki Avatar and follow the last and final messenger. So when you read the teachings of this messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, you will find that it is matching with many things what is mentioned in your scriptures, but at the same time, it may contradict with many things mentioned your scriptures.
Now what we consider the Quran is the last and final revelation of Almighty God which was revealed to the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. This Quran is the furqan it is the criteria to judge right from wrong. So whatever matches with the Quran, if it mentioned in the Bible, or in the Veda, or in the Mahabharata, on the Raman you can be sure it is according to the will and the commandment of Almighty God.
If it contradicts then you have to agree this is against the wish and the commandment of Almighty God. So, if you are a truly strict Brahmin
falling Brahmanism you have to believe one God
you have to go against idol worship.
And if you heard my talk on similar to Islam and Hinduism, if you follow at least those things which I mentioned in my talk, leave aside the other things at least those things and stop everything else, yet I feel that inshallah inshallah it will be sufficient to transform you to jannah inshallah. So, if you have heard my talk on similar to Islam and Hinduism, talking about oneness of Almighty God, talking about Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, how Salah should be offered by prostrating should not have alcohol should not have bought with you mentioned your Scripture as well as the Quran.
It mentioned about modesty in your way does that the lady should be covered it mentioned in the Quran.
So, all these things that I mentioned my lecture, there are many other things, but even if you follow these things strictly sister then inshallah Inshallah, it will be sufficient for you to at least pass this test in this examination. If you want you can follow many more things, but at least the thing the major thing which I mentioned, but whatever contradicts in your scripture, you should not hold on because your scholars say it has changed by the passage of time, you have to realize that these things are interpolations are concoctions of fabrications, so what is matching if you follow this to Inshallah, Inshallah, you can be a very good practicing Brom, following what I
mentioned in your scripture, which is matching with the fork on the Quran, and inshallah can be a practicing Muslim also. So I hope Inshallah, that Almighty Allah gives me Daya Sister, sister, do you agree with whatever I mentioned in my lecture on similarities between Islam and Hinduism system? Yes. So very well, since then, do you agree with what I mentioned in my talk? Yes. So do you agree to follow those things? Yes, yes, I do. So if you agree to follow those three, which I've mentioned. So practically, you have submitted your will to God. You know, in Arabic, we may say Muslim. In English, we may say a person who submitted a will to God. So if you agree with what I mentioned, the
Scripture that there's no God but one God alone should be worship. idol worship is wrong, if you agree, the last and final messenger the culture with our Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him. And again, this teaching, and according to me, if I have to say in Arabic, I will say you're following the religion of Islam. And I say that our Muslim
Sister, do you agree with that? Yes, I do. So do you want to be able to proclaim in public that, you know, in Arabic way that you're a Muslim?
Sister, would you like to proclaim in the Arabic fashion? You know, since you say you agree that there's one God and you agree that Prophet Muhammad is the last and final messenger? So we would like to proclaim that
you are a Muslim? I mean, I wouldn't say I'm a Muslim, but I do accept whatever you say, if you agree that there is one God and he doesn't have any ideas or image, and he alone does a worship. And if you agree that Prophet Muhammad peace, baby
I am the messenger of God, these two are sufficient to let you enter the fold of Islam you know pass other thing practicing will come later on. So if you agree there is one God who has got no image and you disagree with that membership and you agree Prophet Muhammad is the last and final messenger then you can enter this college insha Allah this institute as a way of life is the right word. And then inshallah Agra practice keeps on improving who would like to enter this way of life sister God willing, there inshallah Masha Allah
so, sister again, I like to ask you officially that Do you agree there's one God sister? Yes, I do. Do you agree that no one else deserves to be worshipped by the Almighty Gods. Okay. Do you agree that idol worship is wrong?
And not fully Vidya? Partly? No.
Is it fully or partly? You can say that, you know, I want to eat the cake and have the cake he that annoys me the right or the wrong music and pray to God but don't have to go through an idol. You have to worship but I do believe that God has got no image
Yeah, yes, we believe that. That says Do you believe God has got no statue? Yeah, good. Do you believe that Prophet mamas is the last and final messenger. I've not acid gone to that extent but the rest of the things which you said I would accept with that, but I really don't know what the latest is the messenger of Almighty God. Yes. Do you believe the messenger of Almighty God? When everything practices? Being a perfect Muslim? No one is perfect. We strive so sister if I say in Arabic, would you like to say the Shahada?
Would you like to say the Shahada? That is a proclamation in Arabic?
The same thing when I mentioned that there's no God but Allah and Prophet Muhammad is the message I would like to say in Arabic. Yes, so should you find villages in Arabic and repeated and I gotta give you the Dutch station. Okay.
I shall do. I shall do. Hola. Hola. Hola. ILAHA, il Allah illallah wa I shall do that I shall do an NA. And now Muhammad and Muhammad Abdul
virus. I bear witness.
I bear witness. I bear witness that, that there is no God there is no God but Allah, but Allah and I bear witness and I bear witness that Prophet Muhammad that Prophet Muhammad is is the messenger the messenger and servant of Allah and messenger and servant of Allah, masha sister, thank you, Muslim, and I pray to ALLAH SubhanA wa Taala to guide you. And I request that inshallah all the brothers and sisters, that whenever a person accepts Islam, you can support her in terms of knowledge in terms of social things to say I request you that please inshallah. Read the Quran with translation even a bit earlier, and implement on the guidelines and inshallah you will be a good practicing human being
who's somebody who will Almighty God, and do pray for others.
