00:01:07--> 00:01:11

is religion in the right perspective.

00:01:13--> 00:01:27

Religion, according to the Oxford Dictionary means a belief in a superhuman controlling power, a personal God, or gods that deserve worship and obedience.

00:01:28--> 00:01:44

In short, according to Oxford Dictionary, religion means belief in God. So if you can understand the concept of God in any religion, you will understand that religion in the right perspective

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

I started my talk

00:01:49--> 00:02:23

by quoting a verse from the Quran from Surah Al Emraan chapter number three was 264 he says good yeah look it up. say oh people have the book to Allah Allah Kalamata in Sabah in vain Amina, come, come to come in terms as mean as in you, which is the first term Allah is Allah that you worship none. But when Allah subhanaw taala but when Almighty God will unleash Shiva Yo, that we associate the partner with him while he's a ba, ba, ba, ba, ba ba and mendola that we elect not among ourselves, Lord, no, other than Allah.

00:02:24--> 00:02:26

tala can be done by

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

say a bear witness. We are known as the moon that we are Muslims bowing our will to Allah subhana wa Taala. to Almighty God. This was of the Glorious Quran Surah Al Imran Chapter number three was number 64 shows as a way how to converse, how to speak with different types of people. tallow Illa Kalamata in Sabah, in bernama Anna Come, come to come in terms as a new, which is the first term Allah, Allah that we worship, none but Allah subhanaw taala Almighty God.

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

One thing coming at hamdulillah

in all the major religions is the God that the followers of that religion worship, they believe he's the same God for themselves, as their as fathers. For example, the God within us worship, they believe he is the same God for the Hindus, as well as non Hindus,

00:03:26--> 00:03:43

the God with the Christian worship, they believe he's the same God for the Christians, as well as non Christians. Similarly, the God, Allah subhanho wa Taala, we Muslims worship, we believe he is the same God for the Muslims, as well as non Muslims.

00:03:45--> 00:03:46

Thus, the best way

00:03:47--> 00:04:35

to understand any religion is to understand what the concept of that God in that religion is. But if you have to understand the concept of God and religion, it is not appropriate to try and understand the concept of God in that religion by trying to understand what the followers of the religion do. We should not judge the concept of God by judging the followers of the religion, because many a time the followers of that religion, they themselves are not aware, what is the concept of their religion. That's the reason the best and the most authentic. And the most appropriate mythology of trying to understand any religion, or trying to understand the concept of God in a region is to try

00:04:35--> 00:04:40

to understand what the scriptures of the religion have to speak about Almighty God.

00:04:41--> 00:04:44

So today, we'll try and understand

00:04:46--> 00:04:58

various different religions in the right perspective by trying to understand what is the concept of God in that religion by analyzing the scripture that religion

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

I will not permit us to discuss all the religions, but inshallah we'll discuss the four major religions of the world today.

00:05:08--> 00:05:11

Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam
