Good evening to everybody. I'm necesitaba serca. I'm a teacher by profession with due respect, sir, I wish to ask you a question. How is karma and Moksha defined in Islam? And how is it indifferent while in practice?

00:00:21--> 00:00:27

sisters as a question that how is karma and Moksha defined in Islam, karma sister in the Hindu scriptures means deed,

00:00:28--> 00:01:05

the deed that you do action, you should be called upon to dharma. And then do scholars they believe in a philosophy known as samsara, the cycle of birth, death, birth and death are known as reincarnation or the theory of transmigration of soul. And they believe that whatever karma you do, if you do good deeds, in the next life will be born of a higher level. If you do bad deeds, in the next life will be born of a low level, if you do good deeds will be born like a human being, if bad deeds may be like an animal, like a rat, like a cat, or like a cockroach,

00:01:06--> 00:01:34

and only there are no things there are no balance of good or bad, then you get Moksha from the cycle of samsara birth, and that this is the philosophy of the Hindu scholars. But this is nowhere mentioned the VEDA is nowhere mentioned in the Vedas, the highest authorities, they do try and derive it from Bhagavad Gita, which is mentioned but what Gita chapter number two, verse number 22, that like a body,

00:01:35--> 00:01:40

changes clothes and puts on new clothes, same way a soul puts on a new body.

00:01:42--> 00:01:46

In the Hindu scriptures, there the mention of punar gjennom in the Vedas,

00:01:48--> 00:02:28

book number 10. him number 16 verse number four, five foreigner means next gentleman's life. Next life, we believe in next life, we believe he came in this world once. We'd only come once we were alive before Allah cause her to die. We came in this world, again, we'll die. Again, we'll be resurrected in the next world. So we believe in this world Islam believe will come once, and then will be resurrected, raised up alive in the next year after, depending upon the good and bad deeds will go to hell or heaven for Canada. This is what the Vedas say, but they could not realize the Hindus scholars that how come some people are born deaf, some people are blind, some people poor,

00:02:28--> 00:03:08

some people rich, some people healthy, so God cannot do injustice. So they came up with this philosophy of cycle of birth, that birth, that transmigration of soul, which is nowhere mentioned the VEDA, even Bhagavad Gita when it says, You throw away your old clothes and put new clothes came made the soul throws away the body and puts the new body once I've got no objection, once you die, again, resurrected. But Islam has a reply for the query. Because the Hindu scholars could not agree that how can God be unjust? Some people born deaf, some people are healthy, some people have heart disease, some people are some people poor, Islam believes. Allah says in Surah chapter number 16,

00:03:08--> 00:03:46

verse number two, Alessi Kalika Mata Mata, it is Allah was given that end life to test which of you is good indeed. So this life is a test for the hereafter. Now, some people are born rich, some people are born poor, the rich people the Quran says you have to give Zakat, whatever saving you have more than 35 grams of gold, more than two and a half percent Zakat, every lunar you have to give the rich person may give may not give, he may give half he may get 100% mass may get 50%. If he doesn't, he will get zero for the poor man, he doesn't have to give the car he gets 100 out of 100. And it's a car with a grievance on a very few 100 or 200 meters Academy.

00:03:47--> 00:04:09

In the car. Therefore, Prophet said it is easier for a poor man to go to Jonathan Richman, the rich man is do they have to have to give so much data they may have to give me not to give. If he's the best? Maximum, we'll get 100 out of 100 for the poor man already full marks. So everyone is tested in different ways. Some people are unhealthy. Some people are born with congenital heart defects.

00:04:10--> 00:04:43

We don't believe he's born with a disease because it's sending the last life. It's a test for thereafter, not the direction, maybe the test for the parents. Allah says in Sudan farshad. Number eight was number 28 your wealth and your children are a test for you. Maybe Allah wants to test the parents, they're very pious, and it gives birth to children with congenital heart disease. Someone will say oh, I don't believe in God goes a very good Penn method yet I believe in God, unless testing the greater the test the higher the reward may be Allah wants to give them generally for those

00:04:44--> 00:05:00

like if you pass a graduation, you get a BA or a BSc or become if you pass MBBS you get doctor difficult to pass MBBS than normal ba but if because the test higher the degree, so we believe no one is born sinful everyone

00:05:00--> 00:05:22

I was born Muslim, but in the Hindu philosophy of the scholars not of the Scripture, they believe that you come in this world again and again, if you do good deeds as a human being bad deeds as a law being this, the Vedas never believe, and furthermore logically fabulous today sister, the crime is increasing or decreasing, increasing or decreasing.

00:05:23--> 00:05:36

Crime is increasing or decreasing. Increasing is the population of human beings increasing or decreasing, increasing so logically, if the crime is increasing, the human population should decrease. It is not.

00:05:37--> 00:05:39

So that proves that this philosophy is wrong

00:05:41--> 00:05:47

and furthermore referred to my videocassette similarities between Hinduism and Islam. For more details on this subject
