Before we start taking the questions, I'd like to speak for a few minutes on the borrowed explosion that needs to be taken and lessons to be learned.
As many of you may be aware,
four days ago, there was
a massive explosion in Beirut
on Tuesday, on the fourth of August 2020, at six o'clock in the evening,
that's better time or 3pm GMT. And in this massive explosion, it was one of the greatest explosions in the recent time
in which more than 150 people were killed.
And more than 5000 people were injured, and more than 300,000 people became homeless.
According to the president of Lebanon, the cause of this massive explosion in Beirut was because of 2750 tons of
ammonium nitrate that was towed in the beruht put in whereas number 12.
And this 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate was towed about seven years ago, in 2013 when a ship was traveling from Gibraltar to Mozambique, and it halted on the port. And though the technical problem in that ship, because of which it had to stop in Beirut and the owner of the ship, he abandoned the ship
because of which
a court order was taken where this 2750 tons of ammonium nitrate was stored at the bureau put
in whereas number 12
2017 50 ton It was supposed to be sold or disposed of. Even though federal reminders was sent to the court and to the government by the port authorities. For the last several years. No action was taken.
This ammonium nitrate is actually used as a source of nitrogen.
for agriculture fertilizers. It's also used along with fuel and oil for explosive for mining or industry.
struction industry, it has also been used Milton's as an exclusive
Actually, this ammonium nitrate to store is very safe as long as you take precaution. But if you do not take precautions over time, it may absorb the moisture, it may turn into a rock. And it's very dangerous that it can be inflammable.
According to the manager of the port of Beirut, there was the request for repairing the door of Eros 12. And because of which, they were doing some welding to the door of the warehouse number 12. And after that, he doesn't know. According to reports, we have come to know
that there was a fire at the Beirut port at six o'clock, Lebanon time,
very close to warehouse number 12. And later on the roof of the warehouse number 12 caught fire at six o'clock, Lebanon time.
And few seconds later, there were many explosions, people thought it was fireworks. And 30 seconds later, there was an enormous, massive explosion,
which ruined many structures and buildings around the vicinity of the port. And the effects are four kilometers and
the windows of the International port of Beirut, which is nine kilometers away from the site of explosion, the windows were shattered
200 kilometers across the Mediterranean Sea, the explosion could be heard in Cyprus.
to the reading, they said the explosion was equal to 3.3 scale of earthquake
it was massive.
And because of this explosion, there was a creator created of 140 meters wide and very deep at the site of the warehouse, where water accumulated. And though the ship which was closed, which was blown to the dock because of the explosion.
And in this explosion,
more than 150 innocent human beings were killed.
More than 5000 people were injured. According to the mayor of Beirut, more than 300,000 people became homeless, and the population of Bureau to the approximately 2 million, so 15% of the population of Beirut, they became homeless, and half to 1 million people directly or indirectly affected by this blast.
This was an accident, it was negligence.
What action should be taken
out because the Muslim all over the world that the least we can do is pray to Allah subhanaw taala
the people who are affected by this blast.
And as we know, more than 61% of the population of Lebanon, they're Muslims, more than 52% of the population of Beirut, they're Muslims. And I prayed Allah subhanaw taala that me He forgive the Muslim who have died in this blast, and may grant them Jenna and I prayed Allah subhanaw taala that, me Eve the difficulties of the Muslims or non Muslim families
who have died in this blast.
and me make it easy for the people who have been affected in this last me Give me the people who have been injured in this dust
and may give shelter to the people have become homeless. And may Allah subhanho wa Taala ease the suffering of all those people of Lebanon who have been affected directly or indirectly in this last, the least the Muslims can do is pray for the people affected by this blast.
The second thing we can do is
we can support financially, whatever we can to help the victims of this blast and our hunger lilla there are many charities Muslims or non Muslim NGOs in Lebanon and in different parts of the world which have started collecting funds
we have in America and European countries in different parts of the world.
And our hamdulillah I request the Muslims that whatever your capacity is that the big or small, whatever you can we
should become part
and try and support this noble cause with whatever amount that we can.
The third we can do is those people in Lebanon, or in Beirut, who have not been affected by this blast should support the people who have been affected by this last.
There may be people of Lebanon who may be less affected, they can support the people who have been more affected, we require volunteers at the ground level, to help the people who are injured to help the people who have become homeless, to help the people who may not have food to eat, because of the situation that took place suddenly, because of the massive explosion, because of this last, whatever we can physically because of the pandemic,
which is there to COVID-19 it may be difficult for the foreigners to enter Lebanon, but yet there are people who are trying, where we can physically support the should.
And last what we can do is try and spread this message
that we should not be negligent about the information of the blast,
action actions to be taken and the lessons to be learned.
What can we as Muslims learn from this tragedy?
we should not be negligent. This tragedy happened because of negligence, we should see to it, that we should be careful and we should take precaution wherever required. For example, we should see to it that in our home via the kitchen. Many people keep the guests open
and attended. There may be someone who writes a fire and they can make a motion in the kitchen. We keep and we store things inflammable in the wrong place, which is wrong. And we may not be careful in how we store the inflammable items. All these are lessons to be learned that we have to be careful, and we should not be negligent.
The second thing to be learned is that we do not know
when will be our last day of our life in this world.
Normally, many of the Muslims, we pray for the Muslims all over the world that are suffering.
And I do every time. I pray for all the Muslims in the world who are suffering. And I particularly take the names of the people who are suffering more. And I start with the people, the Muslims in China in xingyang, who are in concentration camps, who have been persecuted, who are being oppressed.
The Muslims in Burma, been to India in the Rakhine State, many people have left their homes, millions
are staying refugee in other countries, I pray for them. Even the Muslims of Palestine,
the Muslims of Syria, the Muslims in Yemen, the Muslims of Palestine, the Muslims in Kashmir, the Muslims of India that are being persecuted by the Indian government,
the Muslims in Bangladesh, and the list is wrong. I think the names of the people who are more persecuted. But generally, we pray for all the Muslims, even the others, which are being persecuted in different parts of the world.
We know that amongst the Muslim countries in the world that are there, maybe 25% are being persecuted on a great level because of the persecution maybe in China, or maybe in Burma, or maybe in Palestine, or Syria or Yemen, because of persecution or because of war.
There may be and then the percentage that may be less persecuted or less oppressed, then will be some living in a country where there may be very little problem for them. And many times these people living in the countries where there is not a major problem may think and pray for the people for the Muslims of other part of the world. But they may think that deaf people, because of the war zone may die anytime. But they may never think that even they too can face a calamity.
And what happened in Beirut,
I'm sure that almost all the people who may have been killed, they may never have thought that falls going to be the last day of their life.
They might never have thought that they will never see the next day in the life.
So it's a lesson for us, that irrespective of whichever part of the world you're living, irrespective of what is your age, irrespective What is your status, whether you're rich or poor, whether you're healthy or sick, you may never know when will be the last day of your life, that there isn't a Muslim normally should lead a life and shouldn't be prepared, that maybe today is the last day of his life. So what should you do?
We should take a lesson from this, that we should be prepared to face our Lord, if we are to die today. And for this, we should see to it that we should do all our fries, and stay away from the Haram activities, we should see to it, that we believe in tawheed that we pray five times a day that we do all the fries, and we stay away from the Haram the major sins and the minor sins also, if
we are sure that we do all the trials, and if you are staying away from the major sins,
and we every day, ask for forgiveness in our Salah, in our tajan then, even though as we are human beings and we do sins,
we can always hope from Allah subhanaw taala that when we pray for forgiveness, when we do Step five, inshallah, Allah will forgive us. So if every day we offer Salah, and we ask for forgiveness for all the sins we are doing, if Allah forbid, we have to die that day, inshallah, it will be a great blessing for us, and inshallah there are high chances that we shall enter Chandra. So this is a lesson to be learned that we don't know how long we live live, we should be prepared, that we will die today. At the same time, we should plan for our future. What we are going to do tomorrow, maybe after a few weeks or a few months of two years. This is what a moment a believer does. He plan for
the future, but he's prepared that he can die today. He may not live to see tomorrow.
This is a lesson for us. What happened in Lebanon was accident, it was negligence. It can happen in any part of the world. Maybe we can face a calamity and repeat Allah subhanaw taala let me forgive our sins. And may He
make us pray for the victims throughout the world including the Beirut blast, and maybe learn a lesson from this incidence. So that we can conclude that
the first question on WhatsApp is from Maria from Bangladesh
and is asking the question
why Allah punishes people in the grave, as there is a possibility that this person may get acquitted on the Day of Judgment. Similarly, a person who's not punished in the grave
may be found to be guilty on the Day of Judgment.
The question posed by realizes that
why does the last Marsala punish the person in the grave maybe on the day of judgment will be acquitted? So would it be injustice
and maybe we will not punish a person in the grave and he may be held responsible on the Day of Judgment.
So isn't this wrong? Allah subhanaw taala says in the Glorious Quran, in Surah, Allah Moran chapter number three was the morning define
that coolness in Xactimate every fall shall have a taste of that.
And your final recompense will be on the Day of Judgment.
And anyone who is saved from the fire and is admitted into Jannah into the garden has achieved the purpose of this life.
For this life, if goods and charges of deception
he Allah subhana wa Taala inserted lm ronchamp number three was the 185 is telling us that the final recompense will be on the Day of Judgment.
That means the final hisab Kitab the final tally of the reward and punishment will be on the Day of Judgment. That means, if you have to get a reward, you may get part in this dunya in this world part in the grave part in the hereafter. Or if you have to get some punishment, you may get part in this world, but in the grave part in hereafter but
is the final Recompense. The final tally of all these three put together would be what you deserve, as a reward, or as a punishment. The question as badly as
that what if you're punished in the grave? And in the Day of Judgment, you are acquitted? So Won't it be injustice? Or if you're not given a punishment in the grave and you held responsible Day of Judgment? Would it be wrong? What are the realities of your question may be correct for a nominal judge, or if you and me are a judge, where you are human beings, he fails to realize that Allah subhana wa Taala is in a game.
Do you think Allah doesn't know? What is the reward every human being deserves? And what is a punishment every human being deserves for you and I want normal human beings we may not be aware, or you and I are a judge, then we will not know until we are the lawyers and we know what's happened. But Allah subhanho wa Taala is Malika Medina, he is the Master of the Day of Judgment, he has him again, he has knowledge of the future, he knows exactly what will a person deserve as a reward, and what will a person deserve as a punishment.
And our beloved prophet masala Sallam said that, for an unbeliever, whatever good deed he does, his reward will be in this dunya he will not get any reward in that era in the life after that,
after the punishment, it may be part here, but in the grave part in the hereafter. As for the believers, both the reward and the punishment can be part in this world, pardon the grave part in the hereafter. So, Allah subhana wa Taala has him again, Allah knows that this poster will get 50 points of punishment. So he may give 10 points in this world 20 points in the grave and maybe 20 points in that era, it cannot be possible that the person receives 10 points punishment, and Allah will give 20 points punishment in the game, it is impossible, unless it l meighen. He has knowledge of the future, he cannot do such a thing you and as a human being can do that. So this question is
logical for human being, but not for Allah subhanaw taala because there will be a gap. He knows exactly what is the total punishment every human being will deserve? What is the total reward that you deserve? And all these three put together is the total punishment he deserves. And that's the reason it's mentioned in the Quran, that on the Day of Judgment, no one will object to the justice of Allah subhanaw taala. Neither the Muslims needed the non Muslims, even the coffee, even the unbelievers, even the non Muslims, who would be put in the hell, they will never say that they have got injustice, they will only ask Allah. That why don't you give us one more chance and Allah will
say it is too late. This was in brief the answer to the question.
The next question posed by Mohsen Mooney, from Bradford from UK.
Can you recommend any good Urdu translation of the Quran for my parents? a similar question asked by Amina Hashmi from Pakistan. I am a Muslim, and I want to read the Urdu translation of the Quran. Kindly recommend me a translation book or a seat.
I normally read the English translation of the Quran. My audio is weak, a fine tuning is concerned. But I did ask some of the people who are knowledgeable in the field of Islam, and they told me that one of the good translations in the old language if ehsaan Romanian by Maulana Mamadou nocatee it's also printed by the king, fast printing press in Medina, Saudi Arabia.
And the second good
translation to do is test zero Quran by Sheikh Luqman salfi who was the secretary of shake when buzz ramola Mela Have mercy on him? So these two are the good old translation with authentic and inshallah if you read them, you will benefit. The next question is from the head Fulton.
from United Kingdom
it allowed to have pension after one has retired from a government job.
As far as pension is concerned, there is nothing wrong
in receiving pension, whether you're doing a government job, or from a private company, but the only point to be noted is that most of the pensions
That are given whether by the government or whether by private companies, they involve
interest under bar because most of the company the government,
when the pension is deducted from the salary of the employee, along with a percentage given by the employer, this money is kept in fixed deposit in banks or in money instruments which earn interest. And later on after you retire, you start getting benefit from this, as you know when he felt that interest is haram and Allah clearly mentioned that the goddess Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was to 278 and 279 that those who give up not the demands of Riba of interest, take notice of a war from Alan is our sole interest is a major sin. Not only is it a major sin, the Quran says Allah and the fool will wage a war against you. And in the book, the two major sins, Mr. Madhavi lifts
interest as the 12th major sin and the Prophet peace be upon him said it's mentioned how the amasa that Allah came that
the lowest level of Riba is like doing xinova chamada. So, because of this, if that pension amount that you receive involves Riba then we should try and
take out that element of rebar because you may not be involving yourself in rebar, but your employer may be. So, if someone is forcing rebar on you, what you can do is you can calculate what is the principal amount which is from your salary, what is the principal amount which your employer has put and what is the element of rebar. So, when you get this pension after you calculate, if you get rid of this element of rebar, calculate the percentage it may be 10% 20% 30% whatever the percentage is, give this away in charity to the poor people for some noble cause, because this Riba has come in voluntary to you voluntary taking grip and giving charity when that is haram. But involuntary is
somebody forcing you it is your money, it is your right that the employers giving you benefit, but if it's involving with the principal amount, the Quran says you can keep the principal amount and give away the rebar. So that rebar
portion percentage from the pension if it is involving the interest should be given to charity. But the best would be if the pension is from Islamic source in the Islamic country that are following the Islamic Sharia. They put it in takaful which is an Islamic based insurance or an Islamic based Sharia compliant pension fund in which everything is allowed. So if it's based on Sharia principles, you can keep the complete amount of pension if it's involving Riba you get rid of that percentage and inshallah you can utilize the percentage which is free from Riba.

The next question
is from Abdullah Muhammad from Bangladesh
if beatboxing allowed in Islam, first let us understand what is beat boxing. beat boxing is a vocal percussion
imitating the sound of the drum machine with your mouth, the lips, your tongue, and your voice.
This is there since a couple of centuries ago, it started. Since the 19th century, though the word was then called as beatboxing. Originally beatboxing was imitating the drum machine. And later on as time passed on, they started imitating the other musical instruments and now, lately, almost all the instruments are imitated by the human vocal voice using the mouth, the tongue, the lips. And it was made famous in the 20th century in the late 1960s, by The Beatles, Paul McCartney.
History tells us that even Michael Jackson made it famous and so on and so forth.
Coming to the question,
that is beat boxing, permitted in Islam.
they agree that musical instruments are Haram in Islam.
There are very few scholars that you may find lately. On the past that have permitted
the use of musical instruments, there are various added which have primary musical instruments. I'll just go to one which is very important. It's mentioned in say Buhari, number 5590, that our beloved prophet masala Sallam said
that there will be among my followers, some
who will make illegal intercourse that Xena adultery and fornication, wearing of silk, drinking of alcoholic drinks, and the use of musical instruments as lawful as halaal.
This is one of the signs of the art
before the day of judgment before the end of the world. A prophet says this is a sign that there will be some people from his oma who will make zinna adultery fornication, wearing acidic drinking of alcohol, and the use of musical instruments as halaal, indicating that using musical instruments is haram. The Prophet only permitted certain times the use of Duff, that's an open ended drum,
an IED on weddings.
But generally all the other instruments are Haram. There are various fatwas
since the musical instruments, Haram,
a human being imitating the Haram musical instrument, according to scholars is also Haram.
And when Shay potami was asked, that is beatboxing permissible, he clearly said, even imitating the Haram instrument, the musical instruments with your mouth, whether it be drums, whether it be other instruments, it is forbidden, it is prohibited. So beatboxing is not permissible for the Muslims. It is not allowed that a Muslim should imitate the sound of the musical instrument whether it be dumbs whether it be other musical instruments, whether sound This is haram, and the Muslim should abstain from it, even listening to it, and even involving in making sounds of haram musical instruments with your mouth.
The next question is from South Dakota man
I am an architect by profession, can I design a temple or a church or any other non Muslim religious architecture? Also, while designing a five star hotel, the client's requirement in most cases is to design a bar in it. What should I do in such a case?
Allah subhanho wa Taala has mentioned in the Glorious Quran in surah majda. Chapter number five was number two that help each other in better and taqwa in righteousness, and in good deeds, but do not help one another in sin and in transgression. So Allah is very clear
in the Quran in surah chapter number five was number two, that help each other in good deeds and in righteousness, but do not help each other in sin and transgression. shirk. If we just say in Islam, Allah says in the Reuters for an in sort of massage app number four was number 48. And sort of massage app number four was 116. That if Allah pleases, he may forgive anything, but the thing of schilke idol worship, he will never forgive. If you ask for forgiveness before then inshallah Allah will forgive you. But if you die as a mushrik, Allah will never forgive you. So in the religious places, of the non Muslim religious places, in temples and churches, but natural that
there is idol worship. So how can you design a temple? Or a place of worship of the non Muslim? Where
other than Allah subhanaw taala? Is worship? So in no way can you design or help in the construction of a place of worship of a non Muslim? neither can we give donation, neither can you support neither can you be an architect, neither can you be a worker in the construction of any place of worship of the non Muslim.
Regarding the second part of the question, that in a five star hotel, can you design a bar? All of us know that alcohol is prohibited in Islam? Allah says in the Quran in surah mindre chapter number five was number 90. Yeah, are you listening Armando? Oh, you believe in number come roll my sorrow, most certainly intoxicants and gambling, what unravel Islam dedication of stone divination of arrows, Bristol Menominee shaytan. These are Satan handiwork obtained from the handling that may prosper.
Since alcohol is prohibited, you as a Muslim cannot design a bar in which people have alcohol. A bar is a place where people drink alcohol, you cannot design it, you can design a five star hotel, if your plan forces you to design you said no I can design the complete five star hotel, but I cannot design the bar. If he forces you then don't take the project because designing a bar is also haram it is prohibited.
The next question is from among Kumar, among Kumar is a revert from Bihar. India is asking a question. I am from a Hindu family. I have converted to Islam one and a half years ago after watching your video and of Maulana Tariq Jamil Ji,
which was explained by a Muslim friend of mine.
But my family does not know this. And they are skeptical. I tried to convince my family that the idols they worship is wrong, but they don't believe it. If I explain then they say that is the whole world in brackets Hindus, are they wrong? And are you the only one who's right.
I also told them that it is okay. You do not listen to me. You read the Hindu religious book. It is written in it, but they do not even read it.
And in the house of a Hindu who worships booty idols, I feel that I have not done any work and that I have to go through a lot of hardships. For I want you to tell me what to do. Lastly, I would like to thank you for helping me recognize the truth and accepting Islam.
I would like to thank you too, brother aman Kumar, for coming to the straight path and accepting Islam. May Allah reward you. And may Allah bless you and may Allah grant to Jenna. At first the question is concerned that when you tell your family members and your parents not to do idol worship, they say that all the other people in the world wrong or the Hindus wrong? You should tell them that whatever majority people do is not always correct. many centuries ago, most of the human being believed that the world was flat. That does not mean that they are right. Today we know that the world is a miracle.
So majority is not always correct. People in the past thought that the light of the moon was its own light. Today we know after science in advance that the light of the moon is not its own light, it is the reflected light of the sun. So just because majority people have a belief that does not mean that the majority always right and if
That is the argument that their family members are giving that majority Hindu that the reason and they do idol worship their first idol worship. You have to tell your family members that in the world the people that practice maximum any religion number one is Islam. insensitive theoretically, maybe Christians are more. But the people who practice any religion, number one
are Muslims. The number one religion which is practiced maximum in the world is Islam. There are more than 2 billion Muslims in the world, more than 26% of the world population are Muslims. Compared to Hindus, we are much more Hindus, about 1.2 billion. So if you're going on majority, there are more Muslims in the world and Hindus. So does it mean if that is what you believe that more people are correct, then you shouldn't be a Muslim.
As you ask the question that you're living in into family, and they are not aware that you have accepted Islam, one and a half year back, what should you do? Even though you're abstaining yourself from shape? My advice to you would be that slowly and with hikma, explain to your family, about that about the truth and revealed to them that we have accepted Islam. Initially they may be angry, they may be sad that they have accepted Islam, but that is the best because once you explain to them and reveal to them that you have accepted Islam, inshallah, inshallah. They will agree with what you have done. It will be easier for you to practice your deen it will be also easy for you to convince
them about Islam and it will be easier for you to prove to them that what they are doing idol worship is wrong. It's a chef you can very well code the scriptures you can give them my Cosette on similarities between Islam and Hinduism where I've proved from their scriptures that idol worship is wrong
and inshallah it will be easier for you to practice or Diem and even get them to the state park my request to you is given to them by February Islam will take Ma and continue dava with them inshallah that would be the best for you.

Assalamualaikum waalaikumsalam they are doing the work for me I did was to you also. Next question is from Arif Ansari from Uttar Pradesh, India. One of my non Muslim friends have asked me, all religions are superstitious and false. The truth lies in science, which is constantly developing
religion faith that God is all powerful, merciful and all good.
If that is so, then why do millions of children in the world suffer from hunger, cold, etc. As the great Russian writer Dostoevsky asked in the famous novel
Brothers Karamazov, why does God who is said to be merciful, not have mercy on them?
And give them food, clothes, shelter, etc? Why is there so much poverty, unemployment, malnourishment, sickness, etc in the world? If God is powerful and merciful? Why does he not abolish these and give everyone a decent life? The question posed by the brother is that one of the non Muslim friends is saying that all religion
The superstitious and the false science is ultimate and always developing. I agree with the brother that most of the religions, they are superstitious, and they are false, but not all. Islam Alhamdulillah is based on on track.
As far as science is concerned, if you compare science with the religious scriptures of the various religions, I do agree with you that most of the religious scriptures, they will fail the test. But if you compare modern science with Quran, you will find out that there is not a single verse in the Glorious Quran, which is against any established science. There are more than 6000 verses in the Glorious Quran out of which more than 1000 speak about science.
And there are many scientific facts mentioned in the Quran 1400 years ago, which was discovered recently 30 years back 50 years back 100 years back 300 years back. Now who can tell us how come the glorious around 1400 years ago mentioned about the facts?
biology zoology in oceanology, in embryology and medicine, in hydrology, which we came to know recently 50 years back 100 years back 200 years back about what the cycle that every living creature has made from water. However, the creation of the universe, the Big Bang, and hundreds of things, which science came to know recently 50 years 500 years by 200 years back 200 years back, the Quran mentioned 1400 years ago, how can you justify this?
out of more than 6000 verses of the Quran more than 1000 speak about science and not a single verse of the Glorious Quran is going against established science. So if you compare Quran with modern science Alhamdulillah Koran is far superior.
And science as you rightly said is developing and many things what the Quran has mentioned, which sign has been confirmed yet, but neither can it say it is wrong. inshallah, in the near future, sign filament confirm that. So Quran is far superior to science. But I do agree. If you compare with scriptures of other religions, all the other scriptures besides the Quran, they will fail the test. So Quran is a book based on heart controlled
Quran is not a book of science, sci fi MC but it's a book of signs as big and as it's a book of Acts.
More than 6000 is a day signs a day otter with more than 1000 speak about science. Coming to the last part of the question that
Why are millions of children in the world dying of hunger?
Why is the suffering in the world? why people are homeless? why people are in pain and suffering.
The reply to this question is Allah faith in the Quran? In Surah mulk chapter number 67 was number two lsv helical Mata Mata it's Allah Who has created that a life to test which of you is good in deeds, this life in the world is a test for the hereafter.
Allah subhana wa Taala has said the human being on the face of the earth has sent us as a test for the hereafter. And Allah says in the Quran, in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was number 155. Surely, we will test you with something of fear and hunger, with some loss
of lives and goods
and what you have earned
through the toiling in the world,
and give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere
that with a live thing, every human being will be tested with fear and hunger, with the loss of goods and lives and your toys. What do you have worked hard and accumulated, but give glad tidings to those who patiently persevere as I mentioned, this life is a test for the hereafter. And Allah subhanho wa Taala tells different human being in different ways. Allah cannot have the same paper, the examination paper keeps on differing every year. So Allah test different people with different ways, some with wealth, some with health, some with poverty, some with diseases. So Allah is testing
these people with hunger,
with fear with suffering, do they yet have faith in Allah subhanaw taala there are some people who have children are born handicapped.
The children assume they're innocent. It's a test for the parents are allotted different people in different ways. And depending upon how will you react? Will you curse Allah? subhanaw taala? Will you get angry that last minute Allah or will you see? Okay, Amina sadhna accepted. For this is a test alleged testing different people in different ways. Nowhere does it say that a person who will suffer in this world will go to hell. Nowhere does it say that people who are poor will fail in the test. In fact, it is easier for a poor man to go to China than a rich man.
Unless testing if we have trouble if you have patience, if he had a faith in Allah subhanaw taala will be successful in the hereafter. So since this is the test, the atheists will not be able to understand because they don't believe in the creator Allah subhanaw taala but forum believer for a moment he realizes that this world the life that we live in this world is a test for the hereafter and we are here to pass this test. So with this way, inshallah life your faith in Allah subhanaw taala if you follow the commandments of Allah subhanaw taala and obey what is mentioned in the Glorious Quran and decided inshallah you will be successful in this world.
The next question posed by Nadia emod, from Manila dish, Sir, I am 20 years old, and clearly inspired by you in the field of Dawa when I tried to convey the message of Allah to the Hindus, using the references of Chen Nokia and synthesizer of Punisher and the jury that that God is only one, he has got no idols, no images, etc. Some Hindus contact me by saying that they believe God is one. But God has come to earth in different forms and different ways from age to age, like Shiva, Brahma, Vishnu, etc. But we worship all the forms. How can I reply to them logically? The question that when he tries to convince the Hindus about the oneness of Allah subhanaw taala, regarding
monotheism, they agree that God is one, but they say that God has come in different forms, like in the form of Shiva, Brahma Vishnu, how do I reply to them, what they are referring to is alta
lindos believe that Almighty God has come down on the face of the earth, in the form of Alta, the what is the meaning of the word
otter is coming from Sanskrit word out and meaning to descend down.
And, according to Sanskrit grammar, it means that some position of Allah descending down some
thing possessed by God defending it cannot be God Himself. So anyone who says that our time is God Himself coming down is totally wrong. It's against the rules of Sanskrit. It means Allah has sent down someone. So in the real context, what they're talking is about messenger.
That's what we believe that Allah subhana wa Taala has sent 124,000 prophets on the face of the earth,
by name 25, our mission in the Quran, and Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, may peace be upon them all. But our beloved prophet masala Salim said that Allah subhana wa Taala has sent down 124,000 prophets on the face of the earth.
these people Ram Krishna,
they will prophets of what may be.
Though the name is not mentioned, I cannot say Rahmani salam, but maybe they are prophets. But even if they were prophets of God, they were sent only for those people and that time because all the messengers and prophets that came before the last and final messenger, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, they were sent only for those people and for that time,
Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him because he was the last and final messenger. He was sent for the whole of humanity. So what we have to understand that the author they're talking about is the same concept as the messengers as prophets what we Muslims believe, so we have no objection that maybe lamb was a prophet, maybe Krishna was a prophet, ma Brahma the Prophet, we have no problem, but they were prophets of God, and they were not God themselves. Because the Vedas clearly mentioned that in the ledger with chapter number three, it was number three, and fifth asset or Punisher chapter number four, was to between nine, that naturopathy musty of that God, there is no prathima. Fatima
in Sanskrit means an image, a photograph, a painting, a sculpture, a statue, and I will so not test it but the master of that God there is no perfect
Sima, there is no painting, there is no photograph, there is no ID, there is no sculpture, there is no image.
So we have no problem in believing that these are messengers, but surely they are mighty God. So if we explained the concept of that, inshallah you'd be able to get them closer to Islam. The next question is, from Ruth one Bashir
from Punjab, Pakistan. Sir, I want to get into missionary work like shake Mr. deedat, to give Dawa to the Christians of Pakistan. Please guide me How can I study the Bible? Which points are verses of the Bible are compulsory per day to read and memorize whether Islam from Pakistan has asked a question that he wants to become like shake Mr. manleigh grand mercy to him, Malaga near the shadows. And he wants to do Dawa to the Christians of Pakistan. The best I would recommend to you is that you should read the booklets written by Mr. T.
And he has written about 15 to 20 booklets that have been compiled into volumes the choice Volume One and choice Volume Two all put together there are approximately 15 to 20 booklets. So if you read these booklets, if you memorize them, it will be very helpful for you to get
to the questions. There are various video cassettes available of Mr. deedat who can go on the internet, you can go on the YouTube you will find them available, officially released by them somewhere close to 80 to 90 videos. You can watch them you can memorize them, it will be really helpful for you.
Besides shaders, books and video cassettes, you can even go on my website, Zack and nine.com which has a separate section called as international our training program.
When you go to the international doubt any program, there is a section only on Christianity.
If you open that section and read, you will find the common question asked by Christians regarding Islam.
Then common question how the Christian tried to prove the divinity of Jesus has been upon him and so on and so forth. The various question answers are given regarding which was of the Bible should be memorized for doing Dawa. But the Christian, the separate section in which is mentioned verses of the Bible.
And we have given first, maybe 1520 verses of the Bible then the next 1520 verse of the Bible may be a couple of 100 verses. If you memorize the few 100 verses from the Bible, you will also be able to debate the Pope.
Then we have given maybe 25 verse of the Quran to memorize the next 25 the next 25 maybe a couple of 100 verses of the Quran. If you know these couple of 100 verses of the Quran, and memorize a couple of 100 verses of the Bible, inshallah you can even debate with the Pope.
And if you read the complete section on Christianity, and memorize it, and you can even see my video cassettes one of the good video cassettes is similarities between Islam and Christianity. There's also a debate of mine with Dr. William Campbell the Quran in the Bible in the light of science, a debate of mine with Pastor rockin Dean on walls Christ really crucified peace be upon him. So if you see these videos and feed these debates inshallah that will be very helpful for you to do Dawa with the Christian of Pakistan. The next question is from Muhammad Farooq from Chittagong, Bangladesh. Some of my Muslim Brothers complain about you that you prove Quran is true by science. As a result,
it is understood that Quran has less status than science and science seems to distinguish between the truth and falsehood. What is the opinion?
The comment made by the brother that when I try and prove Quran
with the help of science, I am trying to prove that science is more superior to Quran and that is totally false. If any of you hear my videocassettes on Quran, modern science, they'll come to know that I am comparing our yardstick, the ashtec of the Muslim that is the Quran with the yardstick of the non Muslim which is science. And I said that Quran is the last and final revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala which was revealed to the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.
And in every age, the Quran has proved itself to be the Word of God previously was the age of miracles and Quran is the miracle of miracles. Then came the age of literature and poetry Alhamdulillah Muslim and non Muslim Arabic scholars alike, they claim the Quran to be the best Arabic literature available on the face of the earth.
But today is not the age of reading
And portrait today is the age of science and technology. And if you compare Quran with modern science, you will come to know that Quran is far superior. When I'm comparing Quran with modern science, I'm telling what science has come to know recently 20 years back 40 years back 50 years 100 years back, or honors mentioned 14 years ago.
For example, Quran mentions the creation of the universe.
In Umbria chapter number 21 was tomasetti Avila, Mira, Xena kafu, do not the unbeliever fee and the Samajwadi will are the kind of duck Noma that the heavens and the earth will join together and we close them asunder. This is similar to the Big Bang.
And the Big Bang says that our universe was one
primary Nebula, there was the secondary separation of Big Bang, which gave rise to galaxies, the sun, the stars, including a planet Earth. And that's how the universe came into existence. This was first described in 1973 by a couple of scientists for which they were Nobel Prize. That is hardly 47 years back 50 years back, imagine Quran mentioned 1400 years ago, the creation of the universe, the Big Bang, what we came to know 50 years back, the Quran mentioned 14 years ago. So when I'm comparing the yardstick of the atheist, of the unbeliever, of the non Muslim that assigns with our yardstick the Quran, I say Koran is not a book of science as CENZ but it's a book of signs. It's a
book of I arts.
And there are more than 6000 is more than 6000 signed in the Glorious Quran, out of which more than 1000 speak about science. And when we compare we come to know that our yardstick The Curious Quran, a far superior so when I'm comparing fans with the Glorious Quran, nowhere do I say that fancy superior
all what is mentioned in the Quran
14 years back Sanchez comes no recently what I'm trying to prove that our Glorious Quran the last and final revelation of Allah subhanaw taala, which was revealed to the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is the ultimate book.
It is far superior than modern science. So, if you hear my lecture
correctly, and with attention, you will come to know and uplifting the state of Oregon far superior to the State of the Science in no way am I saying that science is more superior than the Quran and music they are stick science with our yardstick the Quran and Quran Al Hamdulillah excels and proves it is superior to science of them. So, the question
from Homer trip from the Bay, can I pray Isha at 2am due to difficult working hours.
As far as the time for Asia is, it is after the time for Maghreb ends, approximately depending upon different countries, approximately one and a half hour after sunset, it starts and is up to a nice full length that is up to midnight. This is the time between which you should offer Salah you cannot offer a shower any prayer before time or after the time expires. So offering Isha after this full length, that is midnight is prohibited since you're staying in Dubai
now, I believe the Maghreb time in Dubai would be close to 7pm.
the sunrise is at 5:50am in the morning, so if you calculate from 7pm when the sun sets up to 550, sunrise, it's approximately 10 hours 15 minutes. So the nice full length, the midnight would be five hours 25 minutes after sunset, which is 12:25am.
So in Dubai, you can offer Isha Salah approximately one and a half hour after sunset. That is from 830 up to 1225 midnight, nice full length you want to offer at 2am in the morning, it's not permissible. And our father the sheriff can turn the Prophet said the more you delay before you sleep, it is preferable but before this full length, so if you are living in Dubai, you can offer your Salah anytime between 8:30pm up to 12
25 if you cannot offer after that, or before that
you are saying that you are working in a dream job and because you're busy, difficult to pray a short time, this is not accepted at all. And since you're living in Dubai, in UAE, which is a Muslim country, it is not possible that anyone can prevent you from offering Isha Salah on time. Irrespective whether you're working in a Muslim company or non Muslim company, you can always request them to give you a few minutes to offer your shala that is preferable you're offering Jamaat go to the mosque, and there are many mosques in Dubai. take a short break a few minutes no one can prevent you if someone prevents you go and complain to the authorities of Dubai. I'm sure inshallah
they will reprimand your company. No one can tell you that work is compulsory and can prevent you from offering Salah especially in a Muslim country, especially in the country where majority of Muslims especially in the Gulf country in Dubai, I've been several times to the bath spent several years in Dubai. You may be feeling shy very well go and tell your boss whichever company are working in whether Muslim or non Muslim and tell him I want to offer inshallah, in the mosque he can never prevent you. If he prevents you go and complain to the authorities of Dubai inshallah they will put the person in the place. The next question is from my father
from Kashmir, India.
How can one become punctual in offering Salah?
This is a very good question, that how can one become punctual and offering salah and according to me, each and every Muslim should be very punctual, and should take care that they offered Salah on time.
All the males all the Muslim males should offer five times Salah in Jamaat in the mosque and feed to it that they reach the mosque before a comma so that they are in time. How can you do it? Nowadays it's very easy. We have several applications of prayers of Salah you just go to the app store if your iPhone or go to the Google Store if you have an Android and type prayer a salah and there are hundreds of apps available. These apps give you a reminder
at the time of salah and depending upon the app you can even change Hummingbird before you want the alarm to go on or golf. I am concerned I take extra precaution that I should reach the masjid in time not only before karma, but few minutes before so that I can even offer the sadhana Salah.
What I do, do I have various apps I prefer keeping alarms. And I keep minimum three alarms for every seller. Based on the other end of every seller, the fight emsella I put an alarm of five minutes before the other end time when I'm staying in Putrajaya in Malaysia.
This is the first alarm, second alarm if at the time of
and the third alarm a few minutes late. The first alarm is indication for me that whatever work I'm doing, I should stop in the next few minutes, maximum five minutes so that whatever work I'm doing, I should wind it up. And I see to it that I never pick up any calls. Once the first alarm begins to ring. I do not take any other work. I do not pick up calls. This time is now dedicated to see to it that I reach in time for the most important appointment. The most important appointment is appointment with Allah subhanaw taala it is Salah.
For the first alarm is the indication for me that five minutes LFR than I should wind up what am I doing? I should not take any other new work. The second alarm is on the dot. When is the time father at that time I leave everything and I go and do my Voodoo I go to the washroom I take about two minutes for that I do my Voodoo that takes another two minutes. Then the third alarm brings depending upon how much time are required to reach before the comma
before every seller, that is either To recap, or for a customer before further that could occur sooner. Before and after that before kosuna maka and Guillermo cada before Maghrib and Isha there are two two rocket so if there's two rocket I see to it. I
reach at least three minutes before come. Because to the to the car takes about two to three minutes. I know the time I take from my house going by lift to the mosque exactly is three minutes. I leave my house four or five minutes before because sometimes the lift may take one minute to come up from time to minutes. Most of the time the staff figured that the lift has already arrived for me at each time. So I leave five minutes plus three minutes before eight minutes before akarma my bell rings if I have to offer to the customer that is for the budget time for the Manga Manga time for the Zohar and a third time we have to pray for a cough. The alarm rings five plus six minutes 11
minutes before the anti or 10 minutes before the time so that I reach in time for my Salah
where I'm living in Putrajaya. The trauma time is 15 minutes after the ASEAN time in most parts of the world. It is 20 minutes. So based on that I do my Voodoo exactly at the time of other and who do I go to the washroom I prepare myself and if it's for a cause I have to read immediately after Voodoo. I leave the alarm rings and I leave the house if I have to offer to Raka Salah that day for further time. Magiera Manisha I may have one or two minutes after doing the Voodoo when the alarm rings I leave so that I'm in time to be punctual for the Salah is very important see to it that before that timer starts you should read the mosque. You have to base the timing depending upon how
far is the most from your home or from your office place you do the timing, set the alarm and believe me, you will find the world of a difference will find the serenity in your life. You will find the communist the peace in your life offering Salah in Jamaat in the mosque on time. And
for a practicing Muslim. His full day revolves around Salah times what time eat depends upon the salad time what time we meet people depends upon salata what time we give the appointments, everything is related to Salah that if I want to meet someone, it should not last it's a lot time I'll give him Okay, come to our before Salah or one hour before Salah immediately after Salah is over and my timetable is everything revolving around Salah.
So Salah is the most important deed that Allah will ask you the first deed that Allah will ask you on the Day of Judgment is your Salah. So being on time is very important. I have alarm for these five compulsory Salah as well as from a tangent.
That is the most important cam will lead along with whatever is the most important Salah after the first Salah for the macula, then is the Torah casona before the final salah and many people come and tell me that brothers actually I pray four times four times Allah on time but further Salah
I cannot get up What should I do? So I asked the person that suppose you have an appointment, this is a new we sleep in the night but we don't get up and we can get up.
So it's not our fault. I tell him that if you have an appointment early in the morning, maybe one hour before the sunrise and that appointment is very important for your business.
And in that appointment,
there are high chances that you will earn a million dollar
So will you be able to get up on time for the appointment? He will tell me if it's a million dollar, I will not give the full night.
I said why a million dollar I don't mind taking away the full night. So I tell him that our beloved prophet masala Sallam said that the Torah asuna before the budget Salah is more valuable than the Earth and the wealth in
the earth and the wealth and it would be trillions and zillions of dollars.
So for a million dollar you not sleep the full night of profits that toured a castle now before the Father Salah, imagine what would be the value of the genre. So if you know the real essence of the Salah, and how valuable it is, there is no question that you will not get up. The problem is because you don't know the value you are very relaxed. Imagine if you have to go and meet the Prime Minister what he will do. You will get up early you will bridge before time you will be dressed up in the best of loads. Will you be late for the appointment with the Prime Minister? The answer is no. Allah subhanho wa Taala compared to Prime Minister Prime Minister is nothing
if you have to meet the king, what will you do?
The appointment with Allah is the most important appointment of a life. How can you believe
so if you know that Allah subhana wa Taala the most powerful is the most wise
The most knowing he is billion trillion, countless time better than the king
a better than any Prime Minister president in the world.
So if you have the faith, if you have the belief, inshallah inshallah you will see to it that you pray five times Allah on time including a touch of salah and if your function your full life will change it will be disciplined and Alhamdulillah you will find the peace and serenity and Sakina in your life. The next question posed by brother Abdulhak from Tamil Nadu India, if dharwad simplicity
yes dava is affirmed, it is complicity. Allah subhanaw taala says integrates Quran in Surah Al Azhar chapter number 103, was the 123 he says while us in in Santa Fe, he lives in Armando, well I'm fully happy for the Wasabi Wasabi summer that by the token of time, man is rarely in a state of loss unless taking the oath of time. That man is rarely in a state of loss except those who have faith. Those who do righteous deeds those who exert people to truth and those exhort people to patient and perseverance. This story
is the Rahimi job. It is the path to gender. It is the criteria for any human being go to Jenna and Allah save in the Surah Surah Al Azhar that humankind is in loss is in cassava except if you have four things number one is a man believe faith. Number two is righteous deeds Amala solly hat. Number three is what are sobelle Huck in Whiting people exhorting people to throw that in doing Dharma and Islam and number four is what was the subject inviting people to patience and constancy? So for any human being to go to Jenna minimum four criteria required Eman that is believe righteous deeds. And why do people the truth dava or Islam and inviting people to patience and perseverance. If any one
of these four is missing, you may be a very good Muslim, you will be pretty five times a day you may have gone for Hajj, you may be giving the card you may fasting in the month of Ramadan. But if you don't do Dawa, if you do not invite people to the HAC,
then according to sue rail, a solution not an agenda if Allah was to forgive you, and guide to gender that is Allah's prerogative. But if you do not do thou found to serial acid You shall not enter genma according to Imam Shafi, he said that if this sutra alone was revealed, it would have been sufficient for the hedaya for the guidance of humankind. It's such a powerful surah
and one of the criteria to good agenda estava so Dawa is compulsory it's not optional. Some people say it is for the cafe. No, it's not for the cafe. It is for the end. It is compulsory, every Muslim should do Dawa and Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran
in surah Allah morane surah number three at 910
fish kuntum Cara Amato courageously NASS see Muslims. He had the best of people ever for mankind. That musona bill Murphy was at home and Mankato Nabila because you enjoy what is good and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah. Allah is calling you a cara Omar because the best of people because you enjoy what is good and forbid What is wrong in between and if you do not enjoy and what is good and if you do not forbid what is wrong, if you do not do Dawa, you are not fit to be called as Omar, you are unfit to be called as the best of people.
Therefore, doing Dawa, inviting non Muslims to the truth of Islam is compulsory that there isn't a law called the as
a law says in the Quran in surah forcella chapter number 41 was number 33. woman has to call a lawyer like that who is better in speech than one who invites people to the view of Allah subhanaw taala woman has a new called amendment, doin Allahu Allah, Allah imminent imminent muslimeen who is better in speed than one who invited the way of the Lord who was righteousness and faith that I'm a Muslim, the best profession of quantity. The Glorious Quran is a person who invites people to the truth of Allah subhanaw taala who is a die, the best profession for a Muslim is a die. What are the Beloved Prophet for the Messenger of Allah, he was a die for Dawa is compulsory and if you read the
Quran, one third of the Quran is talking about the non Muslims about delicata about the Jews and Christians pull your coffee
kuliah classroom sink say to the one who rejects the faith, say to the non Muslims, Allah says, Cooley Allah Kitab See, or allocate up faith or Jews and Christians. So all these alleged telling you to tell them
Allah says cool 332 times in the Quran, tell them tell them tell.
In our Salah in the masjid the mom is reciting full hollow faith allowing only everyone in the mosque are Muslims. They believe our lies one so who is the Imam telling? He mommy's telling us Muslim that when you go out of the mosque, say to those who don't believe in one God, that Allah is one. How many of us Muslim do that?
They mommy's reciting koyal Coffee rune say to those who reject faith, everyone in the mosque, they have faith
alleged telling the Muslims to go and tell those non Muslims tell them
Allah think kuliah heneral kita theory People of the Book say or Jews and Christians, Allah Azza wa colusa Lhasa do not say Trinity how near Muslim follows of around one third of the Quran is telling you tell to the non Muslim tell to the LA Kitab tell to the unbelievers. How many Muslim to da da is for the end? It is one of the criteria to go to Jenna. If you do not do our under normal circumstances you shall not go to Jannah if Allah wants to forgive you, as Allah says Allah will forgive anything except the sin of Sheree and allow us to put in gender that Allah prerogative. But Tao is compulsory is for the end and every Muslim should do Dawa as much as possible. It is the best
profession. Hope to answer the question and your limited time. We'll have to end the session Yeah.
inshallah, we will meet next time.
At the same time inshallah. Also earlier at 1115.
At the time of Malaysia, GMT would be 310 next week inshallah lave and mathan would be joining. So next time we'll meet for the program, ask Dr. Zakir and his son farik. Till then assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. wash down under Bellamy
