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

Dr. Sakina I am Jerry Thomas. I am a research scholar in journalism at those Manya University and I have I we and our friends run a site called Sakshi times.com. I have questions to you. One, I always knew that Quran is incomplete without Hadees. Now you are referring to other scriptures Also, since you have referred to Bible Bible says, anybody who denies Jesus Christ is the spirit of antichrist, that is a prophecy. And I also know that Hobbes says that Muhammad had diabolical inspiration, what should I conclude from this question in which he had mentioned a few sentences? He said that he knows that the Quran is incomplete without the Hadees and now he has heard other scripture also.

00:00:53--> 00:01:09

That means if I quote the Bible that we have to follow the Bible, it says the Bible says, anyone who does not believe and deny Jesus case peace be upon him to go to hell, etc, etc. So what are my comments? Point Number one, the Quran is not incomplete without the Hadees the Quran is complete by itself.

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

But

00:01:15--> 00:01:25

to understand the Quran, you have to go to the commentary of the Quran. The commentary of the Quran is the Hadith. That is the authentic saying of Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu sallam.

00:01:29--> 00:01:36

The Quran by itself is a complete book by itself. But if you won't comment in more details about it, then you refer

00:01:38--> 00:01:41

to the things authentic sayings of muscle Asana, which we call si.

00:01:43--> 00:01:54

Now just because I quoted the other scriptures, that does not mean I agree that all the other scriptures are the Word of God. Please don't misunderstand me.

00:01:56--> 00:02:09

I was using the strategy of the Quran. Allah says in the Quran in surah al in branch chapter three verse number 64. tala will occur within Sava embedded Amina Come come to common terms as been as a new

00:02:10--> 00:02:19

they're coming to common terms. Allah says in the Quran in surah Roth chapter number 13, verse number 38, but equally common heart and in every age have we sent revelation

00:02:20--> 00:02:46

alesund several revelation several books by name, only four I mentioned the Quran the Torah, there's a book the engine and the Quran the Torah is the vahi the revelation which was given to Moses peace be upon him. The support is the way the revelation which was given to David peace be upon him, the angel is the way the revelation which was given to Jesus get peace be upon him. And Quran is the last and final revelation, which was given to the last and final messenger, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

00:02:47--> 00:03:13

Now, since all the previous revelations came only for a particular group of people, and they were meant to be followed in totality for a particular time period, Almighty God did not think it fit to preserve it in pristine purity. But because Quran was the last and final revelation, Allah says in the Quran in surah hedger chapter number 15 was number nine, we have revealed the Quran and we shall guarded from corruption.

00:03:15--> 00:03:47

So Quran is the only religious book on the face of the earth, which is in its pure form. I'm not saying that. Even the scholar of comparative religion, including William Moore, who was one of the staunchest critics of Islam, being a Christian. He said 200 years earlier, that there is no religious book, there is no religious book, which has maintained its pure form for more than 1200 years. Now it is more than 40 100 years, like the Quran, being a Christian, being a staunch critic of Islam.

00:03:49--> 00:04:06

You have to be truthful, that chronixx pure form, not all the religious scriptures have changed its form, including the Bible. I don't consider the Bible to be the Word of God. We Muslims believe in the wahi, which was given to Jesus cash peace be upon him the engine.

00:04:08--> 00:04:37

But the present Bibles that we have brother, this Bible, it's a mixture. It may contain words of God, which match with the Quran, I've got no problem in accepting it with the Word of God. It also contains the words of the prophets. It contain the word of historians, I'm sorry to say it even contains pornography. I can't get it here. I can. It even contains hundreds of contradictions, scientific errors, mathematical errors, which I can't repeat here. But I had a dialogue

00:04:38--> 00:05:00

with Dr. William Campbell, he wrote a book against Islam, the Quran and the Bible in the light of history and science and he said, the Quran has got 30 scientific errors. I went to USA, he from Philadelphia, and we had a debate in the year 2,001st April, on the topic, the Quran and the Bible in light of science, and the answer to all these allegations and when I point

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

There are 38 contradictions in the Bible, he could not apply to them.

00:05:08--> 00:05:13

Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was number 79. Allah says for my little little Lizzy next to

00:05:14--> 00:05:39

him, so Maya coluna has a minion della liosta Ruby, salmon and kalila for a Lula mimma cassava at him, Maxi Boone vo to those who write the book with their own hands, and then say this is from Allah to traffic with it for a miserable price vo to those of what they write, go to those of what they earn. So today's Bible, if you know, the word Bible is not there in the Bible. It comes from the Greek word big loss,

00:05:40--> 00:06:01

meaning a book of books. And the scholars say, there are many authors of the Bible, not the Christian scholar. So the peasant Bible, I don't consider it to be the Word of God. Similarly, if you ask me, can you consider VEDA to be the Word of God? Can you consider this capture of the Word of God? Can you consider the past is the word of God? what I say?

00:06:03--> 00:06:27

Maybe never, maybe they will not. Soon as there were many scriptures sent by Allah subhanaw taala many books by the aforementioned, but there are many other like Sufi, blind, several others. So what I say maybe Hindu scriptures, maybe Word of God, maybe Buddhist scriptures, maybe Word of God, maybe Parsi scriptures, were the Word of God. But even if they were, they were meant for those people and for that time.

00:06:28--> 00:06:46

Today, you have to follow the last and final revelation, that is the Glorious Quran. So any human being whether living in India, in America, in Canada, in UK, in Singapore, in Saudi Arabia, all the human being in the world should follow the last and final revelation, the Glorious Quran, and the last and final messenger, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

00:06:49--> 00:07:24

I'm not thinking this scripture is the word of God, even if it was, it was meant for those people. And for that time, the Hindu scholars agree that the scriptures have been changed. The Buddhist scholars agree that Buddhist scripture that men chain on this call have their own religion except Islam. They agree that the scriptures have gone changes down the line down the ages. But even if I agree for sake of argument, it is the word of God, even if it's since the followers of that religion, they believe it to be the Word of God, they should follow every letter, every word of the Scripture. So if the Buddhists believe their script, a word of God, then those believe their

00:07:24--> 00:07:34

scripture to be the Word of God, the Christians believe they've kept your Word of God. So all your scriptures are saying, you have to follow the teaching of the last and final messenger, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

00:07:37--> 00:08:09

To since you consider it to be the Word of God, I say maybe it is maybe it is not. Since you believe it to be the Word of God, you have to follow your scriptures. So you have to believe in the last and final messenger. As I mentioned the Bible in the Gospel of john, chapter number 16, verse number 12, to 14, Jesus Christ peace be upon him says, I have many things to say unto you, but he cannot buy them now. For him in the spirit of three shall come, he shall guide you into all truth. He shall not pick up himself all that do shall is P. He shall show you things to come, he shall glorify Me, who is this person?

00:08:12--> 00:08:37

Was there any religious person who has verified Jesus Christ peace be upon him, besides no masala salam, you rightly said, that anyone who denies Jesus Christ peace be upon him, will go to hell use it? I agree with that statement. I agree. No Muslim is a Muslim. If he does not believe in Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. And we have to say peace be upon him. You may say Jesus, I cannot ask to say peace be upon him. If I had to reach this person.

00:08:39--> 00:09:10

If I do not add peace be upon him. I'll be kicked out. a layman can do that. I have to add peace be upon him. So no Muslim is a Muslim, if he does not believe in Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. We believe that he was one of the mightiest messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We believe that he was born miraculously, without any male intervention, which many modern Christians don't believe we believe that he gave life to the dead with God's permission. We believe that he is those born 911 has got permission.

00:09:11--> 00:09:22

The Muslim the Christians are going together. But I know what you mean. When you mean, believing Jesus Christ. You mean? What do you mean? Believe? Is God correct?

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

Can you on the microphone?

00:09:25--> 00:09:36

When you say believe in God, believe me the Prophet. I believe the statement that I am the way the truth and the life. What does it mean? It means that he is the incarnate God.

00:09:38--> 00:09:44

Brother as for the question, john chapter, the same, I will give you the reference. I'll give you the references, no problem.

00:09:46--> 00:09:59

What are the reference? john chapter 14, you can refer verse number. I have the Bible I can tell you. JOHN, Chapter 14, verse 16, solid is not 16 verse number six. It's not 16

00:10:00--> 00:10:17

Sorry, Mr. Knight, you don't have to teach me Bible you just tell whatever your misrepresentations will be answered in our site, that site, Brother, you are not quoting the Bible in your bag. Correct. You take out the Bible from your bag and you're quoting gospel of john chapter number 14, verse number six, it's not 16.

00:10:23--> 00:10:29

And you said, that Jesus Christ peace be upon him. He said that he was God.

00:10:30--> 00:10:44

I'll come to your question. Before I come to your question, let me tell you one thing, I've read the Bible, there is not a single unequivocal statement. In the complete Bible, by Jesus Christ peace be upon himself says that I am God. awarenesses worship me.

00:10:45--> 00:11:00

If any Christian can point out to me a single unequivocal statement, a single unambiguous statement, and the complete Bible where Jesus Christ peace be upon him himself says that I am God already says worship me. I am ready to accept Christianity today.

00:11:05--> 00:11:25

I'm not speaking on behalf of my other Muslim brother, I am putting my head on the guillotine. I must read of compiled religion. You have read the Bible, even I have to read the Bible. You say that I should not teach the Bible Jesus guys peace be upon him says seeking the truth and the truth shall for you I will ensure I assure you the truth and the truth shall for you today inshallah.

00:11:27--> 00:12:05

As I mentioned earlier, there is not a single unequivocal statement in the complaint Bible where Jesus Christ peace be upon him himself say that I am God always worship me. In fact, if read the Bible, Jesus Christ peace be upon himself says, It's mentioned the gospel of john chapter number 14, verse number 28. He said, My father is greater than I gospel of john, chapter number 10, was the Madre nine, my father is greater than all Gospel of Matthew chapter number 12, verse number 28, I cast out devils with the Spirit of God, Gospel of Luke chapter 11, verse number 20, I with the finger of God cast out devils gospel of john chapter number five, verse number 30, I can have my own

00:12:05--> 00:12:45

self to nothing, as I hear I judge and my judgment is just for a sake, not my will, but the will of my Father, anyone who say they seek not my will, the will of Almighty God is a Muslim, Jesus Krispies before the Muslim, he never claimed divinity. It's clearly mentioned in the book of Acts, chapter number two was number 22. It says, that a man of Israel, listen to this Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God amongst you, by wonders and miracles and signs which God did by him, and you are witness to it. A man approved of God amongst you by wonders and miracles and signs which God did by him, and you are witness to it. So the Bible clearly says that Jesus guys peace be upon him as a

00:12:45--> 00:13:27

man, he was one of the mightiest messengers of God, but not God. There is not a single unequivocal statement in the complete Bible where Jesus Christ peace be upon himself says that I am God always worship me. You call it a verse, to prove your point, from gospel of john, chapter number 14, verse number six, he says, where Jesus Christ, Himself says, that I am the way, the truth and the life No man committed to my father, but through me. Now, this is again, quoting out of context, people pick up verses from the Quran, quote, out of context to my line. Similarly, Christian missionaries, quote, the Bible out of context. I want to tell you through to you, you can open the Bible. If you

00:13:27--> 00:14:12

doubt me, open the Bible for the context. Go to verse number one, gospel of john chapter number 14, verse number one says, that, why are you afraid, Jesus Christ, peace be upon faith? If you have faith in God, have faith in me, in my father's mansion, there are many houses, and I'm going there to prepare a place for you. And when I go, I will tell you, so tell us where now are good. He said, Don't you know where I go? He said, No. Then he says, that shows the way without ghost. So then Jesus ksps burger replies, I am the way the truth and the life been taught us, us. jsps Bella shows the way to God, that Jesus Caspian replies, I am the way, the truth and the life no man cometh unto

00:14:12--> 00:14:48

the Father, but through me. We agree at the time of the messenger. Every messenger was the way the truth and the life, no man to man to God, but through the view of that messenger at the time of Jesus, I agree with the Bible, that Jesus Christ peace be upon him. He was the way the truth and the life, no man came on to Almighty God, but through the teachings of Jesus Christ, peace be upon him. At the time of Moses, Moses was the way the truth and the life No man came on to Almighty God, but through the teachings of Moses, peace be upon him. But today, Jesus Christ, peace be upon him said, I have many things to certainty for that he says, In the Gospel of john chapter number 16, verse

00:14:48--> 00:14:59

number 12 to 14, I have many things to send to you, but you cannot bear them now for heaven. The protocol shall come. He shall guide you into all truth. He shall not speak for himself or that he or she

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

LSP he shall show you things to come, he shall glorify me at today's time. At today's time, the messenger, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is the way the truth and the life No man commit to Almighty God but through the teachings of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.

00:15:16--> 00:15:49

Since Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is the last and final messenger in today's age, irrespective whether a person living in USA, in Canada, in UK, in India, in Saudi Arabia, any part of the world for every human being today, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE no man cometh unto Almighty God but through the teachings of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, and this is what all the major scriptures say, including the Bible. So hope now you have been enlightened to the truth and hope inshallah you will come to the truth and truth shall free you.
