Mr. Edward Raja, brother and Christian. He says he has heard many speeches, and in all speeches, there have been praising their own religions. I came here with a doubt that you may be also be of the same mind. But it is you're surprised to hear that you are stressing on one single God.

00:01:47--> 00:02:02

He wants to know if he sticks to his fate, namely Christianity. Will he reach paradise or not? Is it necessary that I should change my religion? Thank

00:02:03--> 00:02:38

Rogowska good question before I answer the question or request if there any other non must who like to ask question, yet there's enough time half an hour to one is balanced for the question answer time any non Muslim who has questions, please queue up your can break the queue again come in the front of the queue. Any non Muslim brothers or sisters, please come to the microphone. It will be my pleasure to reply to Aquarius. Whether it was asked a good question. He said that normally, most of the religious speakers when they speak, they praise the religion. But when he came to hear my speech, he was happy that I was testing on one God rather than praising the religion. And he wants

00:02:38--> 00:03:19

to know that can you go to Paradise by following Christianity? Can you stick to the Legion and into paradise weather? If you follow Christianity in its pure form, proof form? If you follow the teachings of Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, you have to return now. Because as I mentioned, we believe Jesus Christ peace be upon him was one of the mightiest messengers of God. We believe that but if you follow the corrupted form today, what we believe we believe in the engine which was revealed to Prophet Jesus peace be upon him. But the present Bible that you have is the interpolation is a concoction is a fabrication. So if you say present Bible is the Word of God, I

00:03:19--> 00:03:58

disagree with it. In the Bible, you have many contradictions, many, there are many unscientific things in the Bible, which you can attribute to Almighty God. There is pornography in the Bible. And I'm sorry to say you can attribute that God. So Jesus Christ we believe, is the messenger of God, if you follow his teachings, yet there are remnants in the Bible, even though the Bible has got corrupted has got changed, has it got altered, yet there are remnants there are parts which speak about toys which I mentioned in my lecture. But it also said, Jesus case peace be upon him prophesize the coming of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. Prophet Muhammad is prophesied even in

00:03:58--> 00:04:31

the Old Testament, as well as the New Testament, in the Old Testament prophesies in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter 18, verse number 18, in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter 18, verse 19, it's mentioned the book of Isaiah, chapter number 29, verse number 12. In the Song of Solomon, chapter five, verse number 16. He's even prophesized in the New Testament by Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, and the gospel of john chapter 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 He says, that I have many things to say unto you, but he cannot buy them now

00:04:31--> 00:04:59

for him in the spirit of futurecom. He shall guide you into all truth, he shall not speak of himself, all that he shall speak he shall notify me, the only messenger after Jesus Christ peace be upon him who has praised Jesus peace be upon him, his prophet, Muhammad, peace be upon him. So Prophet Jesus said, you have to follow him. So if you're a true Christian, if you truly believe in the teachings of Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, you have to follow the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. See, Jesus can

00:05:00--> 00:05:39

Peace be upon him. The word Christianity doesn't exist in the Bible. If you read the full Bible, the word Christianity doesn't exist. Only once the word Christian is mentioned in the book of Acts, chapter 11, at Antioch, where people called the nickname the followers of Jesus as Christians, Jesus guys will be upon him never called himself a Christian, what he said, Not my will, but the will of my Father. gospel of john chapter five, verse 30, I can have my own shall do nothing as a euro judge, and my judgment is just for a sake, not my will, but the will of my Father, anyone who says I seek not my will with the will of Almighty God.

00:05:40--> 00:06:16

That's what the Quran says. In surah chapter three verse 52, the Jesus case peace be upon him submitted to God you as a Muslim, Abram peace be upon him. So named Ron chapter three verse 67. He was not a Jew or a Christian you as a Muslim. So Jesus Christ peace be upon him submitted his will to God. And he said, You have to follow the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon so if you're a true Christian, you have to believe in one God you have to submit your will to Almighty God and believe in masala salam, if you submit a will to God and believe in Prophet Muhammad, you will go to China whether you call yourself Muslim or non Muslim means a person who

00:06:16--> 00:06:30

submits your will to God You need not change your name you can keep your name and about no problem. You can keep your name Edward and yet go to Jenna but you should submit your will and believe in the last and final messenger by the Do you believe there's one god yeah

00:06:32--> 00:06:52

I believe in you believe Jesus is God no No, no very good. Do you believe Prophet Muhammad is the messenger Yeah, he's a messenger so finish Yeah. Then you can easily go to Jenna Okay, whether you want to change your name no problem if you believe there is one God and you believe Prophet Muhammad is the messenger you also have to believe that Jesus is the messenger peace be upon him. Then in Arabic, you're a Muslim.

00:07:24--> 00:07:44

the truth? I mean, I understand but not he says multiple classes in families rather for a couple of months, he has been thinking of converting himself to be a Muslim Mashallah. But on observation, I find that Muslims like the people of other faiths, they are worshipping idols are

00:07:45--> 00:08:29

praying at the graveyards. So, there is one famous saint who has been buried in the in Montrose area. And you if you go there, you will see many people raising their arms and worshiping in that place. So when they are doing in this form of worship, they are indulging. How can I change my faith? Very good brother very good. Either told you in the beginning of my speech to understand in religion, don't look at the followers. So to understand Islam, don't look at the Muslims. Yeah. Don't look at the Muslims. Okay. You may not know whether the practice the Muslim or not practicing Muslim. So don't look at the Muslim. If you have to look at any Muslim, the best exemplary Muslim is

00:08:29--> 00:08:51

prophet moments will be upon him. Okay. I do agree with you. In Islam, we should not worship anyone but Allah. So any person whether they call themselves Muslim or non Muslim, if you worship anyone besides Allah, it is not allowed in Islam. When we go to a grave, we can pray for the person we can pray to the person or through the person.

00:08:52--> 00:09:06

Our beloved prophet Ramos, Allah Salam said, Go to the grave, it will remind you that even you have to die one day. So when we go to the grave, we pray for the person who has died. We cannot pray to Him or through him. You can pray for him.

00:09:07--> 00:09:23

Yes, when a person dies, if he dies as a Muslim, you can pray for him. But you cannot pray to Him or through him. Anyone preached to him or through him. It is not allowed in Islam. So therefore, if you want to know an exemplary Muslim, look at the life of Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

00:09:25--> 00:09:34

Thank you, when you accept Islam, follow the Quran. Now I do agree with you that when we worship we worship only to Almighty God.
