00:00:00--> 00:00:42

Yeah, good evening, doctor. My name is Gemma Judea. I've completed my engineering this year. And first of all, this is my first time I've been visiting your open talk. And it was really appreciate the knowledge of all the scripts you have, and the confidence you have and a lot of Muslim supporters, which really follow you. Now my question to you is a bit political. Now, I would like to ask you, Doctor, do you advise all the Muslims to follow the principles of Mahatma Gandhi?

00:00:43--> 00:01:26

Like example of non violence Satyagraha, which he fought for us to get an independence from Britishers as I believe, and I respect all the holy books like Quran Gita, Bible, apart from that, in today's world, I feel I am more an Indian. So would you advise Muslims to follow principles of Mahatma Gandhi like non violence Satyagraha or any of the principles of Mahatma Gandhi? Without the question that do I suggest the Muslims to follow the principles of mathema Gandhi's any change to any principle of Mothma Gandhi, that is non violence and satyagrah?

00:01:28--> 00:01:39

Sorry, sorry to interrupt doctor or any of the principles of Mahatma Gandhi, I got a question starting, who said the principles meaning all the principles, then you said any principle or give answer to both,

00:01:40--> 00:01:43

all those principles of Mahatma Gandhi,

00:01:44--> 00:01:52

which match with the Quran, it matches our Creator, match with the thing the Prophet Muhammad Salah salam, I've got no objection telling the Muslim follow it wholesale.

00:01:54--> 00:02:08

For example, the movement of Mahatma Gandhi nonviolence, the Prophet did the same, not that he copied from Mothma Gandhi, it is madman and you copied from the profit, which I'll come to it later on.

00:02:09--> 00:02:16

If you see the monkey edge of the profit, the first approximate 13 years that he spent in Makkah,

00:02:17--> 00:02:30

he told the follows no violence. Many non Muslims accepted Islam, they were fierce warriors. The Prophet said, Your jihad is suffer, suffer Miss patient. Many Muslims were killed and butchered

00:02:31--> 00:02:46

the pig in MK in that time, they targeted the weak Muslims. They tortured them, they killed them. So those were powerful, they were angry. They said that they killed our brothers, we will take revenge. The Prophet said jihad is

00:02:47--> 00:02:50

someone who has the power to fight back.

00:02:52--> 00:03:27

And he fights back. It's good, but someone who has the power to fight back. And the commandment is don't fight back. And then he restrained himself. That is real jihad. jihad in Arabic means to struggle. It means to strive. So you had the prophets commandment was non violence. They went on the streets. Only thing that we bear witness that there is no God but Allah and Prophet Muhammad peace man with the Messenger of Allah. People told them they did not retaliate. People abused them, they did not retaliate. The profit went to theft. People told him, he didn't retaliate.

00:03:28--> 00:03:32

So, this is one of the strategies, but not the only strategy.

00:03:34--> 00:04:16

That we want to complete the answer. No, sir, after after Dr. Zakir completes a question will allow you to ask you will have to have some patience, Brother, you have asked a question I have to give the reply. So this part of Mahatma Gandhi of non violence, depending on situation, but now if you tell the Indian government, you know the person is robbing nonvolatile don't arrest him. The person is raping nonviolence. don't arrest him. The Indian government will agree every country has a police force. This force is meant to let peace prevail in that country. So sometimes they use force against the criminal to let peace prevail. You can tell the government can tell the police commissioner

00:04:16--> 00:04:30

Bombay that see Mahatma Gandhi said non violence so a person is open let them Rob only to buy don't drop. Suppose they come and rape your sister. He will say okay, don't don't rape, non violence. So non violence is the best.

00:04:31--> 00:04:41

In Islam. There is something like zoom, zoom in Arabic, the best translation of zone 10 operation

00:04:43--> 00:04:54

and a person who does operation is called a valid valid person and who is more solemn than a person who can stop the operation and does not stop the operation.

00:04:56--> 00:04:59

The profit or loss of themselves and others as a Muslim

00:05:00--> 00:05:01

That if you see any Will

00:05:02--> 00:05:03

you stop, raise your hand.

00:05:04--> 00:05:16

If you cannot stop with the hand, stop with the tongue. If you cannot stop with the tongue, then cross in your heart. And if you curse in your heart, you are the lowest level of moment, you are the lowest level of Muslim.

00:05:17--> 00:05:37

Suppose this year rape taking place, Mahatma Gandhi said Oh, don't don't dream. The best if you have the power to stop, stop it with the hand. She may not be a sister, she may not be a mother, if you see someone raping, if you can stop it with their hand, you stop with the hand. If you cannot, if you're weak, if you're on the power, at least a

00:05:38--> 00:05:55

replica of Alaska mascaro Dear Brother, don't rip it up the tongue. If you think if I say with my tongue was the he'll kill me, at least curse in your heart. So depending upon the situation, the strategy keeps on changing. When prophet went to Medina,

00:05:56--> 00:06:07

then he was peaceful. He did Philadelphia, he signed a contract between the pagan unbelievers and Muslim, they broke the contract. When they come for war,

00:06:08--> 00:06:13

then the Almighty God said, when they come for war, don't get scared fight.

00:06:14--> 00:06:28

Kill them. So depending upon the situation, and according to the people, historians, Michael H. Hart, he wrote a book of the 100 Most Influential People in human history. Number one, he gave to Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

00:06:30--> 00:07:17

But I'm not mentioning him for that. Among the important misses was mathema. Randy Michael, charter, famous historian, after mentioning the 100 Most Influential People in history, he mentioned the important misses. And in that he mentioned Mahatma Gandhi. And he says, the subtle movement of Mahatma Gandhi, which was one of the important movements, which led the Britishers go back. But what he said even though this movement wasn't there, yet, India would have got independence, according to the famous historian, Michael chart. So what we realize that depending upon the situation, we have to use the strategy. You can't say always non violence. Sometimes violence will have to be used to

00:07:17--> 00:08:01

let peace prevail, like how you have police in every country and every state. So anyone who goes beyond the limits, who raped who robs, who harms other people, that time as a last resort, like the country says the police can use force. Similarly, Islam says as a last resort, as a last alternative, sometimes force can be used to let peace prevail. Hope that answers the question. If the question was No, sir, I am convinced with it. And thanks for that very limit that don't interrupt me Alhamdulillah it's my profession. I'm in the field. If I give the complete answer, people are convinced I start the answer. People want to object. When you're putting your hand up,

00:08:01--> 00:08:38

your mind is going on the question you aren't paying attention on man. So when you listen with an open mind, inshallah, I will answer your question. If not, inshallah, we'll give you a second opportunity. Okay. And I would also like to advise all the Muslim people over here, you have a great scholar like Dr. Nye, so please follow Muslims 100% as there are some doubts like people do not follow it. 100% so I hope all the Muslims will follow the Muslim religion 100% and make India proud. Thank you, thank you.

00:08:39--> 00:09:17

I would request that all the Muslims should follow Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. And the last and final Revelation the Glorious Quran as far as the brother He said that Muslims should follow me 100% I request him that even he should follow me at least what I speak about the foreign they say Howdy. So brother, we are waiting for an opportunity. I want you also to follow me. Me as long as I mess with the Quran and say howdy if I don't mess with Quran and say Howdy, even Dr. Zakir Naik is zero. Zakat, Nika got no value what I say if it matches with the last and finally commandment, the Glorious Quran, and the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, you follow me?

00:09:17--> 00:09:21

I request you even you should follow me what I speak about the horrendous I headed
