services a good chief in a private company here in Dubai, have been in this situation I've been associating with Muslims. And they've been telling me a lot about Islam. And we've been aware of life have been cherishing are admiring it so much. I began yesterday here with a question which was rightly answered, but with some other questions in mind. I cannot accept Islam till all such questions are being answered. So it's a privilege once more again today, to bring before the audience. This one more question, after which, I'm going to declare my intentions, and my view of Islam.
So my question is this. When you get to a company, let's say you purchase a new car,
you take this car on the road,
and you get to discover that there is something missing from this car, let's say the horn, you discovered that is lacking?
I don't know, in your mind, what do you think? Is it that the did not put their horn or something happened for that horn? To just cease? Or what I don't know, reading it to the world in which we're in. I want to ask whether the world as a whole which was created by an almighty God, somebody who is so powerful and the most intelligent being
in the world.
He created a world we got into it. And we are today looking for bsps fees fees. Where did this piece go to?
when the world was created by the most intelligent being on earth? Is it that he made an error somewhere? Oh, we are looking for something that he did not want it to be in his world. Thank you.
Brother asked a good question. And give an example, that if you buy a car, a new car, and then you find that there is no horn.
So is there something missing with this analogy?
He says that today, in this world, there's no peace. Everyone's looking for peace. So did Almighty God. Did he create peace? Or did he want human me not to get peace?
Where they asked a very good question.
I'll give an example. About the car. You know, the new BMW car,
the latest model 2012, the high model euro seven series, or even a Mercedes
and it's a true story.
One friend of traveling with my friend, he told a friend that go and park my car. So when he went to the third he said he could not find the ignition key.
So he phoned my friend and asked him that very ignition key. So he started to love. The new cars don't have ignition hold. It is the latest technology. The key come close to the car. Automatically it senses you push the button it starts latest. So if you're outdated, you may not know that there is no key hold required in the latest car. These automatic so you're searching for something. It is very close to him. But he could not understand it, because he did not know about it. So Allah subhanho wa Taala first peace is concerned. The main source of peace is a Salaam.
Allah subhanho wa Taala the Creator is the main source of peace. If you cannot understand the Creator, you will never come close to true peace.
There are different types of peace. Some people think that if they get luxury, if they get facilities, they get peace. These are all temporary peace, not the true peace. The true piece is peace of heart, peace of mind, peace of soul. When your heart is at peace, when your mind is at peace, when your body is at peace. And this can only be achieved by understanding the Creator. So those people who don't understand the creator
they are running after mirages. You know when you go in a desert, you see Mirage, so you run after Mirage because you don't understand and to understand the Creator.
As I mentioned earlier require instruction manual. You did not read the instruction manual of the latest BMW and you're trying to find out where the ignition key where is the horn, you read the instruction manual, you will find horn you will find the ignition key hold as well as beef
I do agree with you. Many people talk about peace. Many countries talk about peace, they are talking about the personal material thing
about the security, then you get peace. The true peace is peace of mind, peace of heart beats of soul. I don't know about what you're talking about other human beings, Marshall, I'm at peace.
I don't know how many human beings interacted with, I can tell you Mashallah, I
am at peace, Mashallah. And I found peace, because Islam comes from the word salam, which means peace. It's also derived from the Arabic word film, which means to submit your will to Almighty God. So true peace, if Islam means peace accord, by submitting a will to God. So until you do not submit a will to God, Brother, you will never require to peace.
Hope that answers the question.
Hope that answers the question. Yeah, I've got the question. But are you prepared to accept the new piece? Really, doctor? Thank you very much for the clarification, at least with that in mind. I've really acknowledged alarm. US have really acknowledged Islam, as a learning institution, as as cool, where we learn to benefit ourselves. So As from today, I want to be part of that school to learn the right way of life.
Bird do believe that there is one God? I do believe. Do you believe that Jesus is not God? I don't believe you believe in the Messenger of God, I believe. Do you believe Prophet Muhammad peace be upon the Messenger of God? I do believe is anyone forcing you to accept Islam. Nobody is my you Do you have your free will? It's a free will or your own conviction. Exactly. No one especially the new no praise of Mashallah jealous in Arabic. And then you're going to be did
a shadow, a shadow Allah, Allah Ilaha ilaha illa Allah illallah wa shadow, a shadow and an NA Mohammedan Mohammedan abou Abu Abdul, we're full. We're a solo. 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 that Prophet Muhammad, Prophet Muhammad is, is the messenger, the messenger and so in the Salah, and so of Allah, Masha, Allah, you're a Muslim.
And I pray to Allah subhanho wa Taala that to guide you further and inshallah through you, may he make more non Muslims enterpise under the region of peace, and I pray to Allah to grant you the best in this world as well as dakara
