The topic

00:00:04 --> 00:00:08

of this evening's talk of mine is Muhammad

00:00:10 --> 00:00:12

peace be upon him, in the bible.

00:00:13 --> 00:00:15

Islam comes from the root word salaam,

00:00:16 --> 00:00:17

which means peace.

00:00:18 --> 00:00:20

It's also derived from the Arabic word,

00:00:21 --> 00:00:24

which means to submit your will to Allah

00:00:24 --> 00:00:25

to

00:00:25 --> 00:00:26

almighty God.

00:00:27 --> 00:00:29

Islam in short means peace acquired

00:00:30 --> 00:00:32

by submitting your will to Allah

00:00:33 --> 00:00:36

to almighty God. And any person who acquires

00:00:36 --> 00:00:39

peace by submitting his will to Allah

00:00:40 --> 00:00:42

to almighty God is called as a Muslim.

00:00:43 --> 00:00:44

Many people have a misconception

00:00:45 --> 00:00:46

that Islam

00:00:47 --> 00:00:48

is a new religion

00:00:49 --> 00:00:51

which came into existence

00:00:51 --> 00:00:54

1400 years back. And prophet Muhammad, peace be

00:00:54 --> 00:00:57

upon him, is the founder of this religion.

00:00:58 --> 00:00:59

In fact, Islam

00:00:59 --> 00:01:04

is there since time immemorial, Since man set

00:01:04 --> 00:01:06

foot on this earth. And prophet Muhammad, peace

00:01:06 --> 00:01:09

be upon him, is not the founder of

00:01:09 --> 00:01:12

this religion, but he is the last and

00:01:12 --> 00:01:12

final messenger

00:01:13 --> 00:01:14

of Allah

00:01:15 --> 00:01:16

The last and final

00:01:16 --> 00:01:19

messenger of this religion of Islam.

00:01:20 --> 00:01:22

Allah says in the Quran, in

00:01:22 --> 00:01:25

chapter number 35, verse number 24.

00:01:28 --> 00:01:31

There has never been a nation or a

00:01:31 --> 00:01:35

people without a warner having lived amongst them

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

in the past.

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

And to every nation, to every people have

00:01:43 --> 00:01:45

we sent a guide.

00:01:46 --> 00:01:47

There are

00:01:47 --> 00:01:48

25 prophets

00:01:49 --> 00:01:52

mentioned by name in the glorious Quran.

00:01:52 --> 00:01:54

For example, Adam,

00:01:54 --> 00:01:55

Noah,

00:01:56 --> 00:01:56

Abraham,

00:01:57 --> 00:01:57

Ishmael,

00:01:58 --> 00:01:58

Isaac,

00:01:58 --> 00:02:00

Moses, Jesus,

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

Muhammad, peace be upon them all. By

00:02:03 --> 00:02:04

name, 25

00:02:04 --> 00:02:05

prophets

00:02:05 --> 00:02:07

have been mentioned in the Quran.

00:02:07 --> 00:02:10

But, Allah also says in the Quran in

00:02:10 --> 00:02:12

surah nisa chapter number 4,

00:02:12 --> 00:02:13

verse number 164.

00:02:14 --> 00:02:16

We narrate to you the stories

00:02:16 --> 00:02:18

of some of the prophets. Of the others,

00:02:18 --> 00:02:19

we don't.

00:02:20 --> 00:02:22

Allah repeats the message in chapter

00:02:22 --> 00:02:24

number 40, verse number 78.

00:02:25 --> 00:02:27

We tell you the stories of some of

00:02:27 --> 00:02:28

the prophets.

00:02:29 --> 00:02:30

Of the others, we don't.

00:02:31 --> 00:02:33

Our beloved prophet Muhammad

00:02:33 --> 00:02:36

said, it is mentioned in the Sahih hadith,

00:02:36 --> 00:02:38

in Mishka Al Masabi,

00:02:39 --> 00:02:41

volume number 3, hadith number 5737,

00:02:42 --> 00:02:44

which is also repeated,

00:02:44 --> 00:02:46

in Abu Dhabi humble,

00:02:46 --> 00:02:47

volume number 5,

00:02:48 --> 00:02:49

Page number

00:02:49 --> 00:02:50

265 and 266.

00:02:51 --> 00:02:52

Our beloved prophet said,

00:02:53 --> 00:02:53

there were

00:02:55 --> 00:02:55

124,000

00:02:56 --> 00:02:56

prophets

00:02:57 --> 00:02:58

sent by Allah

00:02:59 --> 00:03:01

on the face of this Earth.

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

But by name, only 25 are mentioned in

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

the Quran.

00:03:06 --> 00:03:09

All the prophets, all the messengers

00:03:09 --> 00:03:11

that were sent before Prophet Muhammad,

00:03:12 --> 00:03:15

they were only sent for their people

00:03:15 --> 00:03:17

and for their nation.

00:03:17 --> 00:03:19

And the message which they brought

00:03:19 --> 00:03:22

was supposed to be followed only till a

00:03:22 --> 00:03:23

particular time period.

00:03:24 --> 00:03:24

For example,

00:03:25 --> 00:03:28

Moses, peace be upon him, was only sent

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

for the Jews.

00:03:30 --> 00:03:32

Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. He was

00:03:32 --> 00:03:34

sent only for the Bani Israel, for the

00:03:34 --> 00:03:36

children of Israel, for the Jews. The Quran

00:03:36 --> 00:03:38

says in surya al Imran,

00:03:38 --> 00:03:41

chapter number 3, verse number 49,

00:03:41 --> 00:03:43

We have appointed him, Jesus, peace be upon

00:03:43 --> 00:03:46

him, as a messenger for the Bani Israel,

00:03:46 --> 00:03:49

for the children of Israel, for the Jews.

00:03:49 --> 00:03:51

In the Gospel of Matthew, chapter number 10,

00:03:51 --> 00:03:54

verse number 5 and 6, where Jesus Christ,

00:03:54 --> 00:03:56

peace be upon him, tells his apostles,

00:03:57 --> 00:03:59

go ye not into the way of the

00:03:59 --> 00:04:00

Gentiles,

00:04:01 --> 00:04:03

into the city of the Samaritans,

00:04:03 --> 00:04:05

ye shall enter not,

00:04:05 --> 00:04:08

But rather go to the lost sheep of

00:04:08 --> 00:04:09

the house of Israel.

00:04:09 --> 00:04:11

Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, tells his

00:04:11 --> 00:04:13

apostles, tells the disciples,

00:04:13 --> 00:04:15

go ye not into the way of the

00:04:15 --> 00:04:16

Gentiles.

00:04:16 --> 00:04:17

Who are the Gentiles?

00:04:18 --> 00:04:21

The Gentiles are the non Jews. The Hindus.

00:04:21 --> 00:04:23

The Muslims, the Buddhists.

00:04:23 --> 00:04:25

Into the city of the Samaritans,

00:04:25 --> 00:04:28

entering not. But rather go to the lost

00:04:28 --> 00:04:30

sheep of the house of Israel.

00:04:30 --> 00:04:32

Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, says, it's

00:04:32 --> 00:04:34

mentioned in the gospel of Matthew, chapter number

00:04:34 --> 00:04:36

15, verse number 24.

00:04:36 --> 00:04:39

I have not been sent but

00:04:39 --> 00:04:40

to the lost sheep of the house of

00:04:40 --> 00:04:41

Israel.

00:04:42 --> 00:04:44

So Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, was

00:04:44 --> 00:04:47

only sent for the Israel, for the children

00:04:47 --> 00:04:49

of Israel, only for the Jews.
