respected, Mr. arthdal far,
much better elders.
And my dear brothers and sisters, I welcome all of you with the Islamic greetings. Assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
May peace, mercy and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. of Almighty God be on all of you
and a pleasure
for me to be invited
by the Holy Quran award Dubai under the patronage of Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum,
as a guest speaker, to give two talks in this glorious month of Ramadan.
The topic of this evening's talk is
media and Islam
war or peace,
media, by definition, his
means of mass communication,
media his means of mass communication.
is derived from the word solemn,
it's also derived from the Arabic word film, which means to submit your will to Allah subhanho wa Taala to Almighty God. So in short, Islam means peace acquired by submitting a will to Almighty God.
That's the topic of this evening's talk his
means of mass communication
and peace acquired by submitting your will to Almighty God, war or peace.
Today, we have to agree
that media is one of the most important tools
or either you can say
media today is one of the most important weapon
can convert black to white,
it can change day into night,
it can convert a hero into a villain and a villain into a hero this media means of mass communication can do wonders
and depending upon how science and technology advance the methods of media are also advancing
the means of mass communication that is media can be broadly classified under four headings. First, we have the print media
which is further divided into non periodical and periodical print media
and non periodical print media. We have literature
like pamphlets, booklets, books, etc. In the periodical print media,
we have newsletters, newspapers, magazines, which are printed either daily weekly, fortnightly
quarterly, annually. This is the first type of media that the print media. The second type of media is the audio media.
Today, we have audio media in the form of audio tapes, which are becoming obsolete. Next is the audio CD compact disc. We also have lately the DAC digital audio tape.
This audio media
can either be used by an individual person at his home, at his office or in a vehicle is traveling in a car etc. By having an audio player.
It can even be used by walking like a Walkman.
It can be used in gatherings, small groups, functions, parties, weddings, gatherings such as this or it can be used on a mass public level through the radio broadcast station.
The third type of media we have
Is the video media which again today is available in the form of VHS
video home system cassettes which again is dying out, it is becoming obsolete.
We also have the V CD, video CD which is becoming obsolete. Today we have video on the media, DVD digital video disc.
And the next generation of video which has just started is the HD DVD High Definition digital video disk.
The other one coming in the market is the blu ray all these types of video media
this too can be used on individual level at home and office
in groups and gatherings or
in mass level
the television broadcast station, satellite channels, cable TVs,
the last media we have
is the computer media. It information technology,
which again can be used on individual level in groups and in mass public.
It can be used in the way of internet.
This again can be stored in the form of this get CDs, hard disk and variety. In short, we have four types of media, print media, audio media, we do media and the computer media.
Each media requires a specialization.
Each media has its disadvantage and advantage. For example, the print media can be carried very easily in comparison to the audio or the video media but as technology is improving, we find that this gap is reducing.
Today's scientific research tells us
that the retention of each type of media it keeps on deferring
when an average human being
when he reads the printed media.
He retains approximately 10% of what he has read on an average
when a person hears the audio media, an average human being he retains approximately 20% of what he has heard.
When a human being sees
and a picture, any visual
an average human being retains approximately 30% of what he has seen.
But when a human being sees endured at the same time simultaneously, that is the video, audio and we're together and average human being retains approximately 50% of what he has heard and seen. So the best in terms of attention is the video media.
Today we know
that the international media
whether it be the print media, the audio media, the video media, or the computer or the IT technology, whether it be the international newspapers,
radio broadcast station,
websites, or the television satellite channel, we find on the international media there is virulent propaganda about Islam.
We find that the international media, they are bombarding misinformation about Islam.
We find that there are various misconceptions about Islam that are spread on this international media.
And we find
that international news channels
war on terror.
Or some of the international news channels. They are saying war for peace.
what they're doing is not war for peace, war on peace. In other words, war on the religion of peace on Islam.
The international media as a whole today
we find that they are projecting Islam
as though it is a religion of terror.
It's a religion, which does not want peace to prevail
Unfortunately, we aren't really replying to this international media. And there are various techniques that are used by this international media to project Islam
in a wrong way.
The first strategy used
by the media to maligned Islam is many times they pick up the black sheep amongst the Muslim community, and they portray as though they are exemplary Muslims, indicating that Islam is a religion, which encourages these wrong things. We have to agree
that there are black sheep in our community. There are some Muslims who do illegal activity.
They pick up the selected Muslims, and they portray on the media as though the exemplary Muslims giving a picture to the world, that Islam is a religion which encourages these illegal activities,
these activities which are against humanity.
And all of us know today
that the international media says
the Islamic madrasahs should be banned. Why?
Because they produce
human beings who cost terror, who disrupt the peace of this world.
hamdulillah I know 1000s of people, human beings who have passed
from Islamic madrasahs I don't know a single
who encourages and propagates the disruption of peace.
That does not mean that there will not be any Muslims have passed from madrasah who may be propagating wrong things. There may be a few.
Surely it will be less than 1%.
But the media portrays these Muslims as though they're exemplary Muslims.
And as though a person who passes from mother sighs, an exemplary student
who disrupts peace in this world.
History tells us today
that the human being that has killed
the maximum number of human beings in this world. Who is he? Who is the man who has killed the maximum human beings in this world? Who is that person?
Who is he?
Hitler, you don't get an award for that.
It is common knowledge, Hitler, which mother son Hitler passed from,
from which mother son, Hitler graduate
and you go down history, we know miscellany. He has killed 1000s of human beings, which madrasa departs from.
We know today, that the mafia,
the top drug dealers in the world, which mothers had in the past from,
you take a list of all the top criminals in the world, not what the media portrays, actually, if you have proof, what they've done is wrong. I'm not bothered what the media portrays, who is terrorist number one, etc, without any proof, but those who have been imprisoned, those who have been proved
to be causing disharmony in this world, if you check the background, you will not even find 1% point 1% of them apart from others on their path from these universities. The one that even
fortunately, unfortunately, he would have passed from the normal formula education system. Apart from Bombay,
after doing my schooling at Boston Medical College, same like a normal doctor.
So this is how the media picks up the community and portray as though the exemplary Muslims. If a person wants to judge Islam, he should not judge Islam, based on what individual Muslims do, or what the Muslim society does. If you want to judge about range of Islam, you have to judge according to the authentic sources, and the authentic sources of Islam are the glorious foreign and authentic say, Hadith of the last and final prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.
And I challenge
anyone, any human being to point out a single teaching from the Quran, or the Hadith, which is against humanity as a whole.
Imagine, you want to test how good a car is, and the latest car in the market. Mercedes 600 Sal has been launched. And a person who does not know how to drive the car. He sits behind the steering wheel, and he bangs up the car who's
You blame the car or the driver
who will blame the car or the driver
but naturally the driver
if the driver does not know how to drive the car, any bank that the car you will not blame the car. If you want to judge how good the car is, you will have to look at the specifications of the car, what is its pickup? What are the safety measures? What is the speed, what is the gear ratio, and then you can tell how good the car is. And really if you want to have a test drive you put behind the steering wheel and export driver.
Similarly if you want to observe any Muslim regarding how good Islam is, the best example we have is Prophet Muhammad Salah Salah.
Don't look at me.
Don't look at me how good Islam is.
Don't look at the other Muslims or what the individual society does look at an expert diver or a person who knows how to follow Islam in totality and that was the last and final message the Prophet Muhammad Salah Salah.
The other strategy used
by the media to maligned Islam is the quote many verses of the Quran out of context.
And one of the most common verses
quoted by the critics of Islam as sort of taba chapter number nine was number five,
which is, wherever you find the coffee, you kill him. And if you open the Quran, that verse is there, the translation is there. Wherever you find the traffic, you kill him, but it is out of context.
The code verse of the Quran out of context.
The code Hadees is out of context.
The context is when we start a few verses before, it's mentioned that there was a peace treaty between the Muslims and the Muslims of Makkah. And this peace treaty was unilaterally broken by the machines of Makkah. By the time Allah subhana wa Taala reaches was number five of Surah Tauba chapter number nine, he is giving an ultimatum to the mosques of Makkah that you put things straight in four months time, otherwise a declaration of war. And in the battlefield,
Allah says, to the Muslims, that don't get scared, fight. Wherever you find the enemy, you kill him, any army generally, to boost up the morale of his soldiers, he will naturally say that wherever you find the enemy, you kill him, he knows that wherever you find the enemy be killed.
So this is in context in the battlefield.
In the battlefield, Allah subhanaw taala. Wherever you find the coffered enemies attack, you don't get scared, fight
and kill them wherever you find them.
if there's a war going on between America and Vietnam, and American presidency is in the battlefield, he is boosting the morale of the American soldiers or the Army General of America says that wherever you find the Vietnamese you kill him. It's in context. But it's I quote out of context and say today, the American president is saying that wherever you find a Vietnamese kill him, I will make him sound like a butcher. It is out of context.
And throughout the world,
he did put a full stop on the jump to the next verse. And Aaron truly was one of the staunchest critics of India where I come from. He writes in his book The world of fatwas, after quoting Muslim oh five of Surah Tauba. He jumps onto verse number seven. You know why? Because verse number six has the reply to his problem
was the mistakes of Surah Tauba says
that if the, if the enemy seek asylum, don't just let them go. It says, escort him to a place of security so that he may hear the word of Allah,
the Most Merciful,
the Most Merciful army general today in the battlefield, we say, if the enemy wants to go, just let him go. But the Quran doesn't say Quran says if the enemy wants peace, don't just let him go escort him to a place of security.
And all the verses almost all the verses in the Quran which talk about fighting, mostly in the battlefield, or against operation against irony, the next verse that follows is, peace is better.
Because Islam is a religion of peace.
The third strategy used by the media to malign Islam is the give a wrong meaning of the verses the code of the Quran, or the Hadith of the prophets Rasul Allah,
the fourth strategy, the code things which are alien to Islam. It doesn't exist in Islam, but they attribute it to Islam.
And the fifth study to use this decode thing of Islam correct
But they give it a different angle.
What they say, is a problem
to humanity and the portrait as though Islam is the problem for humanity. Actually, it is not a problem. It is the solution for the problems of humanity.
I've given a talk Islam the solution, not the problem for humanity, time does not permit me to speak in detail on the subject. But these are the various strategies used by the media to malign Islam.
And we find it on the international media
that they call the Muslims as fundamentalist, as extremist as terrorist. And most of us the apologetic No, you know, yes, I'm not a fundamentalist. You know, there are some people who are who are fundamental I'm not a fundamentalist. I'm not extremist.
Most of us Muslims, we are apologetic. We go on the defense.
The Muslims should be dies.
It is compulsory for every Muslim to convey the message of Islam to the others. Allah says in the Quran, Salam Ron chapter number 310 pantum Cara mattina, Jacqueline NASS, or in Muslims, he are the best of people the wall for mankind.
punto Terra Amata naka de nos top mirana Bill Maher,
Luna Bella, because we enjoy what is good and we forbid what is wrong and we believe in Allah. We are called as a Kira oma the best of people because they're supposed to enjoy what is good and forbid what is wrong and believe in Allah. If we do not enjoy what is good, and if you do not forbid what is wrong, we are unfit to be called as Muslims unfit to be called as
we should be proud to call us as Muslims, we should know how to turn the tables over.
when I was in martial arts in my young days.
Now as I'm young, Mashallah
my school days I could say,
we always taught in martial arts, whether it be Judo or Jiu Jitsu, that we should use the force of the opponent to throw him over. Rather than resist. If someone is pushing me, and he's a big giant, you know, you can see my physique, nothing great. Yet, I like
not having any podium, because that's a technique of the media, not that I have a very good physique.
I like my body language to be seen.
So when someone who's a big giant who tries to use force against you, rather than resisting, use his force to throw him over and bigger the person, the harder he falls.
You know, the media today is calling muslim fundamentalists. What is the meaning of the fundamentalist fundamentalist by definition means a person who follows the fundamentals of one particular subject. For example,
if any person wants to be a good scientist, he should know, follow and practice the fundamentals of science. Unless he's a fundamentalist in the field of science, he cannot be a good scientist.
If a person wants to be a good mathematician, he should know follow and practice the fundamentals of maths, unless he's a fundamentalist in the field of maths, he cannot be a good mathematician.
We cannot paint all fundamentalists with the same brush at all are good or bad, depending in which fields the person is the fundamentalist, you have to label him accordingly. For example, if we have a fundamentalist robber, whose profession is to rob, he is bad for the society. On the other hand, if we have a fundamentalist doctor who saves 1000s of human lives, his good for the society, you can't paint all fundamentally the same brush, you have to find out what are his fundamentals, before labeling him whether it's good or bad.
As far as I'm concerned,
I am a fundamentalist Muslim, and I'm proud to be a fundamentalist Muslim.
Because I know, I follow and I strive to practice the fundamentals of Islam. And I know there is not a single fundamental of Islam, which goes against humanity as a whole. There may be a few fundamentals of Islam, which the non Muslims may feel it is against humanity, but the moment to give the logical reason regarding the fundamentals, and the statistics of the world, there is not a single human being who's unbiased, who can point out a single fundamental of Islam, which is against marriage as a whole. Therefore, I'm proud to be a fundamentalist Muslim.
When we read the Webster's dictionary
we come to know
The word fundamentalism was first used to describe a group of Protestant Christians in America in the early part of the 20th century. Previously, the church
it believed that only the message of the Bible was from God, these Protestant Christians in America in the early part of the 20th century, they protested that not only is the message of the Bible from God, but every word, every letter of the Bible is from God. If any person can prove
that the Bible is the Word of God, this movement is a good movement. On the other hand, if someone can prove that Bible is not the word of God, then this movement is not a good movement.
When we read the Oxford Dictionary, we find that the Oxford Dictionary, the definition of the word fundamentalist is given. It says that fundamentalist is a person who strictly adheres
to the ancient doctrine of any religion.
But when we refer to the latest edition of Oxford Dictionary, there's a slight change. It says that fundamentalist is the person who strictly adheres to any ancient doctrine of any religion, especially Islam.
The word especially Islam has been added
to the definition, the moment you use the word fundamentalist, to start thinking of a Muslim.
He's an extremist, he's a terrorist.
The media says that Muslims are extremists. I said, Yes, I'm an extremist. I'm extremely kind. I'm extremely Most of all, I'm extremely honest. I'm extremely just
what's wrong in being extremely kind, extremely merciful? Extremely, just extremely honest. What's wrong? Can any human being Tell me being extremely honest, is bad? Can any human being point out to me that being extremely test is wrong? The Quran says they have to be extremely honest. He can't be partly honest, we can't be biased, that if he is my friend, I'm honest, if he's made me I'm not honest. We have to be honest, and just with everyone.
What it says in chapter two was number two, and then it fell makaha and turned to Islam wholeheartedly.
So what's wrong in being an extremist, but we have to be extremists in the right direction.
We should not be extremist in the wrong direction.
We should not be merciless. We should not be violent, but we should be extremists in the right direction. That's what the Quran says.
But unfortunately, we go on the defense, oh, I'm not an extremist. I'm not a fundamentalist turn the tables over.
Muslim today are labeled as terrorists.
I say every Muslim should be a terrorist. What is the meaning of the word terrorist? terrorist, by definition means a person who causes terror. When a robber see the policeman who's terrified, so for the robber, the policeman is a terrorist. So in this context,
in this context, whenever, whenever a rapist whenever any anti social element looks as a Muslim, he should be terrified.
We should terrify the anti social element that put the foreign citizens around fall. Chapter number eight was the 60 cost there are in the hearts of the anti social element.
I know that today the word terrorist is commonly used for terrorizing an innocent human being. In this context, no Muslim should ever terrorize any innocent human being, he should selectively terrorize the anti social element,
we should likely be terrorized, the thief, the robber, the rapist.
Whenever any anti social element looks at the Muslim, he should be notified, then only can we have peace in this world.
to different labels are given for the same activity of the same individual.
About 6070 years ago, before India got its freedom, the country better come from
the Britishers buruli, India, there were many Indians who are fighting for the freedom of the country. These people by the British government, they were called as terrorists.
But the common Indians, we call them as freedom fighters as patriots, same people same activity, but to different levels.
If you agree with the view of the British government, that they had a right to lower India, then you have to call these people as terrorists. But if you agree with the view of the common Indians, that the Britishers came to India to do business, they have no right rule over us, then you will have to call these people as patriotic freedom fighters, same people, same activity, but two different labels. And such examples you can give multiple such examples in world history.
Die should know if there are many examples which example should we use where, so that he understands. Because Quran says Islam Ron chapter three verse 64, tala will
come to common terms as a senior, the moment the Indian is when they call Muslim terrorists. And when I give this example, then they understand the picture better. Two months back, I was in UK, after the bomb blast off the seventh of July. They're supposed to be again conference, Tony Blair jack was supposed to come last moment, they didn't come. But the chief of police was there, the mayor was there. And they're also used example. But my examples are different.
I said that in the 18th century,
we know of the American Revolution,
the Britishers were ruling America, there were many Americans who were fighting for the freedom. In 1776, they got the freedom.
And top of the line more Benjamin Franklin, George Washington, they were called as terrorists number one by the British government.
The person who was terrorist number one, George Washington. Later on, he becomes the president of USA, imagine terrorist number one become the president of USA.
And he is an example for all the Presidents to follow, including George Bush.
This is media. That is number one becomes the person of the country which will look up upon USA, USA named the most advanced country in the world.
Who was the person was the first president a terrorist.
We have the example of Nelson Mandela. Before New South Africa was formed. South Africa was released from the white apartheid government. Nelson Mandela by the white apartheid government. He was in prison for 25 years in Robben Island, he was called as terrorists number one, later on, when South Africa gets its freedom from the white apartheid government. He is named the president
of New South Africa. And later on, he gets the Nobel Prize for Peace.
And he doesn't get a Nobel Prize for Peace for a new activity, not that he was a terrorist first, and then he did some good activities. And a bad person has become a good person no no for the same activity for which he was called a terrorist. After a few years, he gets a Nobel Prize for Peace.
It is weird, same activity for which he was imprisoned for 25 years.
He was called as terrorists for the same activity later on, he gave the Nobel Prize for Peace.
So this is how the media
can convert day into night, black into white hero into a villain and a villain into a hero. In short, whoever is in power, whatever he says,
turns out to be the gospel truth. We know when Hitler
was invading Europe, many countries were investing even France, they resisted these French people by the German devil called us terrorists.
This is how the media
paints a picture. Unfortunately, we Muslims, unfortunately, we are way behind. We should know how to turn the tables over.
the word which is maximum misunderstood in Islam, it is the word jihad.
Not only is there a misconception amongst the non Muslims, regarding the word jihad, there is even a misconception amongst many Muslims regarding the Arabic word jihad.
Many people think that any war fought by any Muslim for any reason, whether it be for power, whether it be for personal gain, whether it be for money, it is called as jihad. Any war fought by any Muslim for any reason, whether it be for power or for personal gain for money is not called as Dr. jihad is an Arabic word coming from the word Giada, which means to strife, which means to struggle.
In Islamic context, it means to strive and struggle against one's own evil inclination. It also means to strive and struggle to make the society better.
It also means to strive and struggle in the battlefield in self defense. It also includes to strive and strive
struggle against operation.
Jihad basically means to strive and struggle. If a student is striving and struggling to pass the examination, it means he's doing jihad.
So Jihad basically means to strive and struggle.
And many of the non Muslims, they translate the word Jihad into English as holy war. And unfortunately many so called Muslim scholars in your did commerce, even they translate dia the holy war, holy war in Arabic.
The word if you want to translate Holy One to Arabic, it is horrible Mukunda the word herban mocha de does not exist any vendor.
It does not exist anywhere in any of the Hadith of the prophets, Allah Allah.
This word holy war was first used to describe the Crusaders. When the Crusaders in the name of Christianity they killed 1000s of people. They termed it as a holy war. And today they're using that word for the Muslims.
See how the media is for the use of the word fundamentalist for the Christians now do the for the Muslims holy word was used for the Christian Crusaders? Now do that for the Muslims saying Jihad holy war?
yeah basically means to strive and struggle, and every Muslim should be a die. A Beloved Prophet said it's a hadith of Bokhari polygon, uneven wire propagate. Even if you know one of us, you can't say no, I will wait till I become like shake Emma, and then start doing dava The time will never come. Even if you don't want most of Islam, as long as you know it correctly, it's your duty to propagate it, every Muslim should be a die.
The problem is, we aren't following the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala that the reason we are in this state, he will not have people who will not have themselves
who's to blame.
And after 911 it has reached epidemic levels. maligning Islam, and I had gone to USA two years back
in October 2003.
I'd gone to Los Angeles
and I was prepared.
wearing a tie and a coat, beard, that poofy else prepared that I will request a dye has to be prepared. So now when immigration Oh, we are cap go for inquiry. I was prepared. They asked me why have you come here? I said I'm getting an award award for what I said award for humanity. There's organization in Los Angeles, in USA giving me an award for humanity. What work have you done? I told him, I spread truth, Jesus Christ peace be upon him said seek the truth. and the truth shall free you. I'm a person who spread truth.
I was in line, I'm a die. I'm spreading denial. There is no truth.
And asked me various question to cut the incident shot.
When I went to the custom dope in my bag,
and they found my video cassette, Jihad and terrorism.
They asked me
Do you believe in Jihad? I said yes.
Even Jesus Christ peace be upon him believed in jihad. He said you have to strive, even I believe in striving. I believe in what Jesus said that you have to strive. No, no, I mean, do you believe in fighting? I said it is mentioned in the Bible.
In the book of Exodus, chapter number 22, you have to fight. It's mentioned the Bible in the book of Exodus. We have to fight in the book of Numbers chapter number 31. We have to fight
in the Gospel of Luke chapter number 22, that take the sword and fight.
But then the customer for the being a Christian. No, but that's in self defense. I said that 40 when I fight for self defense,
they told me sir, can I ask you one more question I said no problem. I just told my host that you know, I'm just doing immigration Don't bother.
I as a dye dye should not get scared of truth.
I start my talk by quoting the verse of the Quran from Surah chapter number 17 was number 81.
When truth and falsehood for supership for false hood, expats, Nita bond Parrish, and Alhamdulillah after 911 everything has become strict visa become stigma hamdulillah I have traveled after 911 to USA to Canada to UK to Australia, to Malaysia to Singapore, and I've got 10 year visa USA five year visa of UK, Canada two years visa hamdulillah hamdulillah. Yet I do not mince my words. I'm very clear. When I go for lectures, I say I'm come for lectures, and I go for spreading truth. I say if
for spreading the truth,
depending upon the situation where you are.
Allah says in Surah chapter three verse 64, dialogue,
come to common terms, as
many of you may be aware the situation in India, it's not easy to do, especially the city where I come from Bombay, one of the most difficult place to do dava according to me, it is Bombay.
But Allah is the one to protect. There itself I speak, I called the Vedas. I called the Bhagavad Gita, I called the Upanishads. But then my strategy changes.
There are many Indians will say the Muslims are terrorists, this Quran, it propagates and you should find what kind of Rich's book is this? I tell them, have you read yamamura Mahabharata is one of the sacred scriptures of the Hindus, your Mahabharat has got more verses of fighting than the Quran, it will put the Quran to shame as far as verses of fighting is concerned.
So the Hindu tells me No, no, but this is a fight between truth and falsehood. I said the same fight is in the Quran also. Oh then we have no problem.
And the most commonly that scripture among the Hindu scriptures, bhagwad Gita, Bhagavad Gita, nothing but an advice given by Shri Krishna, the God of the Hindus to Arjuna. It's mentioned Bhagavad Gita. Chapter number one was number 43. To 46 that are done
in the battlefield, he puts his weapons on the ground and he says, I would prefer being killed unarmed than to fight my cousin's Mahabharata is a fight between the cousins, the pundits who are five and the Torah was 100. And Bhagavad Gita is a part of Marber 25 chapters.
He puts His the pin down or June,
but would get the chapter number one was 42 to 46. And he says I would prefer being killed unarmed, then fight my cousins.
Immediately few verses after chapter number two was number two, she Christian says, oh, Arjun, how could such impure thoughts come in your mind? How could you be so important? God Almighty, she Christian is calling.
You will not enter the heavenly planets, you are entering the sin and the full bhagwad Gita is nothing but advice given by Almighty God to attune that he should fight discusses
it further mentioned in Bhagavad Gita, chapter number two was number 31 to 33.
That Oh, Arjun, you are a Sharia.
It is your duty to fight on religious grounds.
If you do not fight, you will incur sin. If you fight, you will go to the heavenly planet.
and bless it are those who get an opportunity to fight. Imagine if it is the Hindu, your Almighty God, she Christian is forcing us to kill his cousins. It will be devilish.
what he's doing, he's telling that if you have to fight for the truth,
even if you have to fight against your cousins, you have to fight that for the Quran says in chapter number four was 235. Yeah. Are you under the nominee? Oh, you believe, stand out for justice. As witness the truth of Allah subhana wa Taala. Even if it be against yourself, against your parents, against challenges with the rich or poor, Allah protect sport, simply.
And very often, a common Hadith is quoted to maligned Islam. How do you
find number four? In the book of jihad, chapter number two.
And the critics decode your Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. He said, that if a Mujahid is killed in the battlefield,
he will go to heaven.
If he comes back alive, he gets the wealth of this world. And even the critics of India, like Iran, surely, they quote this hadith against Islam. I tell them having read the Bhagavad Gita, Bhagavad Gita says in chapter number two was the mu 37. She Christian, the God of the Hindu, he's telling Arjuna that Oh, Arjun go and fight. If you are killed, you will go to the heavenly planet, you will go to Florida, you will go to heaven to paradise. If you come back alive, you will get the beauty of this war, verbatim translation of SIBO hari
high density Hindus that having to read your own scripture your decor force in the Quran and Hadith.

Binary, come to come in terms as a new.
So v Muslims should know how to be tava, how to convey the message, how to turn the tables over, as I told you earlier, that was in UK. And they say about Muslims. Oh, suicide bombing, Muslims are killing innocent people. There's a book written
by an associate professor in political science in the University of Chicago by the name of property. He writes the book by the title, dying to win. He is supposed to be one of the best experts in suicide bombing in suicide terrorism. Number one in USA property, the book is dying to win.
He writes in his book, that suicide bombing was alien to Islam.
If you read the history of Islam, the Quran and the Hadith, do you find any suicide bombing there? No. The first people
who got involved in suicide bombing was the Tamil Tigers.
Later on, it was the Marxist Leninist. And Robert Pape writes that in Iraq,
before the Americans came to Iraq, there was no suicide bombing after the Americans came, then suicide bombings.
and non Muslim, Christian and American was supposed to be an expert on suicide bombing Robert Pape, and you can give talks on the books written by Americans and non Muslims.
We should know how to convey the message the message of Huck
in UK we know they have a problem of IRA
fine, it is nothing but Catholic terrorism, but do they label it as Catholic terrorism? No, why?
If any Muslim is involved, Islamic terrorism, non Muslims are involved. They talk about the region not about the religion, why?
This is how the media, it picks up information and they portray it in the wrong way.
if it comes in the Indian media,
that a 50 year old actor comes to India, and he made a 16 year old girl headlines. 50 year old Muslim Arab made a 16 year old girl. But when a 50 year old non Muslim rapes a six year old girl, it comes in news brief.
Human beings taking permission of the parents married with permission, giving us the rights. What is the problem? Here a non Muslim 50 year old rapes a six year old girl it comes in news briefs.
We know of the Oklahoma bombing, Middle East conspiracy Middle East conspiracy continuously when they came to me it was American soldier the new died out in a couple of days.
And you can give multiple examples how the media is playing games.
today they say that Islam is the religion which was spread by the sword.
A very good reply is given by Dennis O'Leary and his book, Islam at the crossroad on page number eight. It says that history makes it clear that the legend of fanatical Muslims sweeping across the world, forcing Islam at the point of the sword over conquered races is the most fantastic myth that historians have repeated.
Did he already the very famous historian he says that history makes it clear that the legend of fanatical Muslims forcing Islam at the point of the sword over conquered races is the most fantastic myth that historically repeated
the Muslim history tells us rules pain for about 800 years. We didn't do our job. We didn't do Dawa. Later on the Crusaders came, we wiped out there was not a single Muslim who grew up in the US and
we Muslims. We have ruled the Arab lands for the past 1400 years. For a few years. The British us came for the few years the French came, but we Muslims have been the Lord of the land for the past 40 years yet today. statistics tell us there are 14 million Arabs who are Coptic Christians.
Coptic Christian means Krishna says generations if we wanted, we could have converted every Arab into Islam. But the point of the fall we didn't do it. The 14 million Coptic Christians in Arab land, they are bearing witness they are giving Shahada that Islam was inspired by the sod
be Muslim, we ruled India for about 1000 years.
Today, more than 80% of the Indian, there are non Muslim. If we wanted, we could have converted every Indian, at the point of the forbidden do it Islam does not give us permission. These 80% non Muslim Indians, they are giving Shahada. They are bearing witness that Islam was inspired by the sword.
Which Muslim army went to the east coast of Africa, which Muslim army went to Indonesia, which has the largest population of Muslims, which Muslim army went to Malaysia, which has more than 50% Muslim, which army which thought into the sort of the intellect of Allah says in Surah, chapter number 16, was the 125 Auto Elizabeth era pick up sigma Walmart
in white all the way of the Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue with them, and reason with them in the ways that are best nutritious.
There was an article a survey done
by Roger Sol manager book in 1984, it was repeated in the plains with magazine, a survey was done about the increase in the major world religions in the span of 50 years from 1934 to 1984. And number one, the maximum increase was in the region of Islam 235% Christianity only 47%.
I'm asking the question which war took place in the span of 50 years between 1934 and 1984, which converted millions of non Muslims to Islam? Which war? Which war? Today? The fastest growing religion in the world? is Islam, the fastest growing religion in America? is Islam, the fastest growing religion in your opposite Sam, I'm asking who is forcing these Americans, these Europeans to accept Islam as a part of the sod?
Before 911, the maximum allegation about the media was that Islam does not give rise to the woman. Do you know, out of those people accepting Islam, including in America and Europe, out of those non Muslims accepting Islam to a woman? If it's not degrade the woman? Then why do these American woman Why are these European woman accepting Islam? What
the media thinks that is some degrades government, then why are these American and European woman accepting Islam? because Islam has the solution to the problem of humankind, especially the humankind. They find security in Islam.
We know you wanted Lee.
She had gone to Afghanistan to spy on the Taliban. She lasted for seven days. She comes back. She's so much impressed and does not permitted to speak about it is many of you may be aware. She read the Quran and she accepts Islam.
People ask her that. How did the Taliban shoot you? They treated me like a guest.
The amount of respect to given the amount of modest behavior it was, it changed the heart
and martial law today she's wearing Hijab she lived in London.
A British reporter sent to write against the Muslims. Except
whenever I go to America and Europe, there are more non Muslims coming to my talk than before. More Americans more Europeans. I believe in the verse of the Quran Surah lebrun chapter number three was number 54. He says maka, maka Allahu Allah. They plan and plotted Allah to plan. Allah is the best of planner after 911. In the span of nine months in USA alone, 34,000 Americans accepted Islam.
According to you on deadly in the span of nine to 10 months after 911 22,000 Europeans accepted Islam. The more that attacking Islam, the more Islam is rising. Not because we are doing our job Allah we are doing our job. You and I are not doing the job. Allah gives the promise in the Quran in no less than three different places in Surah. Chapter number 61 was number nine in Serato by chapter number nine was number 33 and 40 Fatah chapter number 14 was number 22. Allah says, who will love the Salah solo Buddha, what did you lose? You know Allah de Nicola that Allah has sent His messenger with guidance, and there is enough truth so that it will prevail over all the other religions or all
the ways of life. Islam is designed to supersede all this religion of peace. This religion of heart will supersede all the other ways of life. And enough is Allah as a witness, however much the non Muslim don't like it. How am I the machine don't like it. Islam is this time to supersede all Allah does not require you and me the rubbish that we are. Allah doesn't require you and me unless sufficient to make his dream prevail. He's giving us an opportunity to do a profit job and to honor profits reward. He's given us an appointment.
This religion is going to prevail. This dinner, Huck, this dean of throat, this region of peace is bound to prevail.
And a vertical statement was given by Adam Pearson.
He says that people who worry that one day nuclear weaponry will fall in the hands of the Arabs, they fail to realize that the Islamic bomb has already been dropped. It felt the day Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him was born.
Not now let us analyze what does the media say?
We'll discuss about each type of media in brief.
Firstly, learn to print media.
According to an article which came in the Time magazine
on 16th of April 1979,
written by Christian, he writes that more than 60,000 books have been written against Islam in the span of 150 years, from 1800 to 19 150. More than 60,000 books have written against Islam, if you calculate more than one book is written, every day, more than one book, every day against Islam and against a prophet. And after 911 This has reached epidemic levels every day, several books are written against Islam
and Muslims, what are we doing?
This Christian missionaries,
they are spreading,
they are doing the job.
They are printing
literature and distributing.
Do we have one sample?
I asked an Arab Sheikh melosh What is this? Allah Muhammad.
But if you read very carefully, it is not Allah Muhammad. It is Allah muhabba
which means God is love. It is a quotation of the Bible from the first episode of john chapter number four was number 16. God is love and the verse continues. We're we're dwelleth in love dwelleth in God and God is in him
most of the Bible
if I give it to the Muslims, most of them will
kisser and keep it in the pocket. The moment is the Arabic Allah Salam
in the pocket.
It means if you find any Muslim, any Arabic literature on the floor in India, Pakistan or any other non Arab countries, when they find the keys and put in the pocket as a last column, it is a snake in the house. There are various posters. I didn't have time to get it when you read it.
The moment zero Panathinaikos is enough, Indonesia has not yet trained. It is not representative Aparna
heaven Hallowed be thy name thy kingdom come because of the Bible.
The distributed among the Muslims. And we colorful
This is the photocopy full color job beautiful. You put it in your house.
There you think deceit.
They're using deceit to enter our homes.
I've given the talk on deceived by the Christian evangelism. Time doesn't permit me to go into details. That lecture by itself we can speak for us to get on each of these topics. And remember, since I subscribed to many of these Christian organizations have a beautiful calendar.
So one aluminium organization Mashallah knows Arabic. How do you like the calendar? Oh, beautiful calligraphy? Can I take it home? I said take it. He keeps it for a week.
Then ask him how do you like the calendar?
I forget back then why? I forget it back. Then. So read it carefully. Then you realize this those are verses of the Bible in Arabic.
The Christian they've come out with a Bible contextualization a new Bible.
If you read it reads Bismillah R Rahman r Rahim.
They are taking verses from the Quran and converting it changing a little bit as though an Arab read we think it's a part of the Quran. Actually, it is Bible Tunis, contextualization.
time doesn't permit me just In brief, what the Muslims are doing. I come from India, which has a population of more than a billion people, out of which safely you can say 160 280 million Muslims. We have many Muslim magazines
for our purposes, etc.
What is the quantity that they print in India? How much 4000
5000 8000 number one, English dava magazine, Islamic voice 15,000
as in America a few years back
before this trip I was there. I did a survey, the maximum
number of print any English magazines our magazine is but it's not the message 50,000
do you know there is a small cult in Christianity called as Jehovah's Witnesses?
outcasts then the mainstream Christian? The print magazine by the name of Watchtower?
Do you know how much do they print?
monthly? How much do the print?
Can anyone guess?
The maximum in USA 50,000. How much do they print?
Any guesses? You won't lose any money? Any guesses?
Direct 1 million. Any other guesses?
5,000,001 lakh 100,000 you know with the print 20.8 3 million. Leave aside the Muslim the can't print we can't even think.
Leave us at printing we can't even think the Christian a small outcast group. Known as Jehovah's Witnesses. They print two magazines out of fun is Watchtower. With the print semi monthly, not monthly twice a month. Each time they print is 20.8 3 million more than 20 million in 130 languages. They print every fortnight twice a month they print every time they print is 20.8 3 million with every month they print more than 41 million in 130 languages. The second magazine is awake they print 16 million twice a month more than 2 million for a job they give free
we Muslims diversified printing we can't even think so you'd have to pay any money to guess maximum was 5 million
they print 41 million every month.
We can't even think
and the distribute free sometime they keep a nominal price in india to rupees 16 halala What is 16 halala name so if you only give you as many copies as you want free
in 130 languages, Watchtower, awake in 80 languages
This is how they propagate.
And one of the media is giving lectures giving talks. We had a talk at some Research Foundation where I come from in Bombay
at a talk in Bombay, in Azad Maidan
and it was a it was a good big talk compared to the population, Mumbai the big population. But getting people in Mumbai is very difficult. If you get 200 people
find Islamic talk in English. It is great success.
That means I've done a great job because Bombay the big city people don't have time to listen.
Leader of the press said 200,000 people came but we know it was 20,000 people. The Press exaggerate we know before the organizer, I gave a talk on similarities between Hinduism and Islam. 20,000 people came it was done professionally via Jimmy Japes big one not the small one big image if we had nine cameras in a good way professional way. Many Muslims said Ah
they might have spent a lot of money. No, that's luck to her Jackie nine or 10 lakhs at least 1 million rupees is rough. They might have spent at least 10 lakhs. It is 80,000 dirhams at least $20,000. Yeah, spin is rough. They don't know what we actually spend. What we actually spent about 20 to 30 lakhs.
It is three times more than the estimate. We spent $60,000.
About 250,000 drums.
You know I'm telling this immediately, two weeks after that.
Benny Hinn, who has heard of Benny Hinn, he's an American Christian speaker. He's an American preacher. How many people have heard of Benny Hinn, raise your hand when he
oddly 4030 people memories done in an audience of about eight to 10,000 people here. More than 1000 people, only 20
30 hands I can see what sort of Benny Hill unknown
very popular person. Even I did not know Benny Hinn till he came to Bombay. He comes to Bombay and six weeks after our talk. He has three lectures on Friday, Saturday and Sunday for three hours each.
Three hours each Friday, Saturday, Sunday. You know how much he spends?
People are saying, Oh doctors $20,000 they spent?
Actually we spent $60,000.
If they come, no, they will blame me more.
You know how much you spent, how much
know how much talent he spent $5 million.
Only for nine hours $5 million in the city of Bombay.
What a budget there are $5 million.
The Press said that more than 2 million people came. But actually less than 100,000. People came even getting 100,000 people in Bombay, out of which more than 50% are non Christian.
I haven't gotten that program. They had these Jimmy chips. They had GPG flown from America, nine american people came two weeks to one month in advance to prepare for the top
one month staying in a five star hotel. white American. He comes three days in advance to check the system
that 32 screens, you know the screen, that bigger screen than this 32.
We had 500 volunteers We are proud 500 volunteers. They had 7000 volunteers.
Christian, not even 3% of the Indian population. They're not even 3% $5 million, they spent more than 20 crore rupees.
More than 200 million rupees they spent.
Imagine the flow the crew, the only program three hours, three days and he goes back.
If you know the budgets of this Christian missionary organization, on average, it is more than a million dollar a day. Jimmy Swaggart who debated with check me that he required more than $400 million annually to keep his head above water.
More than $1 million a day is the budget.
We are nothing. I don't know of any Islamic organization in the world, which even has 10% of the budget.
And in the organization after I will different parts of the world.
But the professionalism that they have
these Christian missionaries, they are trained, they are trained in giving talks.
We hardly know of any Islamic organization who trains people in public speaking. Today, scientific research tells us that if a person gives a talk on the stage in public, the matter he speaks carries only 7% wittich. Only 7% 93% is presentation skills. How does he moderate his voice, his outward contact his gestures.
The reason I don't have a podium is by not that I have a very good physique is because I want to have my body language even my body speaking.
V and Islamic foundation in Bombay, we trained professionally Muslims, how to convey the message of Islam. We trained not only Indian even trained foreigners, we are American government organization. We have a British people from Singapore, from UAE, from Malaysia, from Saudi Arabia, scholars from a different city we train them We specialize in the field of how to convey the message of Islam. How many Muslim organizations Yeah.
Imagine how can I? How can I go in the battlefield without my weapon? If the microphone system is not good? How can I fight?
This is another weapon.
But when Muslim organization called me throughout the world, they keep in a five star hotel, but the sound system is useless. When I accept an invitation I tell them the sound system should be good. I will sleep on the floor no problem. I don't require a 5000
imma die I can sleep on the floor. But give me a good sound system it doesn't cost much.
But give a professional good sound system to hire doesn't cost much it is much less a small percentage of paying the bill over 5000 they keeping a five out there but they don't realize the importance of sound system.
What we Muslims should do we should train ourselves in the media to specialize in the field of public speaking is a speciality print media in the different speciality audio media the different speciality video media different speciality we have to be specialized.
And today we have created broadcast stations. How many Muslims are doing the job? How many
We have the computer we have the internet. When the internet started, there was more information against Islam than for Islam on the internet. Now, there are some Muslims have also got into the field. But the Christian ahead of us, the moment we give a reply, they give the counter reply on the internet.
And the sites are such I don't blame them, I don't make them popular. The sites are such you will think it is an Islamic site, you go to it.
It is a snake in the sleeves.
The magazine that they print
they have organizations in India darville ninja
form of salvation, Arabic name
who is the president Sudan, Sudan,
called for hope
it's a Christian organization. So please don't go names same on the internet you go around to give the names of the site otherwise everyone will go and many will get misguided they get such information which a normal Muslim, even even not be able to reply. They pick up parts of the Quran and
so as I told you the media the media is good as well as bad.
It is positive as well as negative like a knife, it can be used for good purpose and for on purpose. If you cut vegetables and bread it is good. If you use for robbing it is bad. Similarly the media has got advantages and disadvantages. It has got positive points, it has got negative points. It has good things it has got bad things. What we should do we should utilize the science and technology and turn the tables over and utilize it for good work. Today majority of the media is used for work which is not good.
That's the reason most of the Alma more from the show. They say that the media stay away from it and I'm for them
and not against them and for them. Because most of the thing that comes in your house, the satellite channel,
it makes you go away from Islam rather than towards Islam.
And today's church sisters number one media today is the television media, the television satellite media.
Today's trash they tell us there are more than 20,000 television stations 20,000 television stations, reaching 5 billion people of the world more than 80% of the human beings are reached via the television media. This is the survey. If you take part in the television media,
the television media, the satellite media is reaching 80% of the world's population. 5 billion people.
And the investment in this media is how much $400 billion $400 billion is the investment in this media. And people are churning money out of it.
more than 98% more than 99% is haram. Haram.
taking away from the truth
more than 99%
we have to utilize it and turn the tables over.
Imagine $400 billion invested only in the television media.
Christians owning 50 channels 100 channels just making money out of it.
In America alone, there are 1673 television stations.
Out of which 83 are religious and majority almost all the Christians and a majority
throughout the world, there are hundreds of Christian journalists, hundreds there are Hindu channels there are Jane's channel, how many Muslim channels do we have how many
in India? Yes, several Hindu channels. We are in India Christian channels in regional language. In English we have several channels we have in the regional South Indian languages only for a part of India. Specialized targeting
there are hundreds of Christian channels number one
is the god TV
who has already got TV
Oh Mashallah. Most people have got too many.
Got TV was launched
about 10 years ago in 1995 by a British show,
but it's uplinked from Israel.
Do you know at present, they are on 15 different satellites, reaching more than 200 countries and having a viewership of 275 million
275 million people is the reach 200 countries 15 satellites they've hired the god channel is one but there were separate God channel for Asia separate for Europe separate for America separate for India specialisation
like how the BBC the BBC World is different BBC Asia different BBC Europe a different way the 90% The matter is same but they want to even take advantage of the prime time prime time in UK is different than in UAE it is different in Bombay. So according to the prime time they cater the program and the shift the timings
so they hire different satellites
so God channel is one of the most popular among the Christian missionary channels but Christian channels are hundreds of them
how many Islamic channels together and of many Muslim learning many entertainment channels many 510 20 many around you may be doing that groups of tenders how many channels do we have how many channels we have for our
the first one that was launched
was by Katya needs MTV, a Muslim TV, Ahmadiyya non Muslim, Muslim TV and it even comes into a into a Muslim TV. Normally when you see the channel, you think it's a Muslim channel. The name is also Muslim TV, but
the true mainstream Muslims that
what eight years back, the first Islamic channel launched on TV, but mainly it is Arabic. Then we have magic TV, then we have fudger but all these channels, they're basically Arabic channels, catering to the Muslim ummah.
Mainly targeting the Middle East. They are Islamic channel, but you will not call them as dava channels. They aren't channels which are propagating Islam to non Muslims, but mainly catering to the Muslim ummah.
We have other channels which are localized only in Europe,
we have other channels which are localized in other parts of the world. What we require is a full time 24 hours Dawa channel to convey the message of Islam to remove the misconception, what the media is telling us Islam. I was here a few years back again on the intimidation of the Holy Quran about Dubai. And that time it came in headlines in the local newspaper articles college times the doctor's archinect calls for an Islamic TV that given a lecture on the topic was different, but in the question answer session I said we Muslims require a full time satellite data channel and English which is an international language, we have newspapers, which are local and only
only the Muslims in India or in Pakistan. We have Arabic newspaper read only by the Muslims. See this should be they're not saying this is wrong. But what we require is a
newspaper, Adama satellite channel,
and hamdulillah Al Hamdulillah always believe in the philosophy that whatever the project is,
don't wait if the project is big. See we are a very small organization. If the project is big, whatever lies given you start with it. If you have 1000 reals 1000 dirhams start with it inshallah you get success plate is back. We started producing programs for satellite channel, and I'm hungry Lhasa, madam Lila.
We are supplying every day for half an hour to two hours
to more than six international satellite channels
not only to Muslim channels like Accra TV, to TV or where digital Islam channel even to non Muslim channels, film song channel, etc 24 cents on Haram. At least half an hour There is Allah they see a joker looking person
they see a joker looking person who's the Joker loving person wearing a coat and a cap and a coffee and a tie. And somebody asked me a question that why does Islam permit a man to have more than four wives are dying and I will enjoy and then the reply comes logically and many are convinced. So what we have done we have always said this is a material free don't pay us
because then we go to that we have spent for many 1000s of dollars producing it. The moment we charge maximum number one so we will say take it free and Mashallah most of them should daily because they're gonna get free.
We will be nakara inshallah.
As I mentioned a few years back in album had mentioned
that there should be some activity at our channel.
We'll be happy to know that inshallah inshallah in the next two to three weeks
we will be launching an Islamic Dharma channel by the name of peace TV
we don't have the budget for the Christian missionary we don't have we have very small small people, whatever we have inshallah
we have called it the peace TV. So the media is with war with Islam, but we have peace with humanity
salaam doesn't mean Islam
it will be a dove into channel initially reaching
Europe, Australia, Africa, Middle East and Asia will be on finance at 10 initially, later on, within a few months we'll even go to USA inshallah.
And very shortly, within one year inshallah we'll try and cover this full globe inshallah
it will basically be an English satellite channel, but we don't want to lose the time which is not a prime time what is not prime time in Europe and English countries, it will be prime time in India and Pakistan that time we will show programs in Hindi and will do so that we also want to cover the non Muslims of India. So 25% initially will be in
Hindi and Urdu 75% will be in English inshallah, and I request you to pray to Allah subhana wa Taala that inshallah with this peace TV will be able to spread the region of peace throughout the world inshallah.
should basically know how to turn the tables over.
I would like to give another example before I end my speech
for the past few months, those people who belong to the Indian subcontinent and now desperate internationally, you know, of the issue of Sania Mirza Have you heard of Sania Mirza?
Mashallah, everyone knows why, because of the media.
Everyone knows of Sania Mirza because of the media, and the media gave her publicity. You know why?
Because she was a Muslim.
Not only because you're the Muslim, because you're the Muslim and wearing clothes,
skirts and shorts.
It happens so that last issue of Time Magazine,
I think it was the last week of September or the first week of October 2005. She came on front page Sania Mirza front page, wearing a skirt and playing tennis. Why? You know why? All of us know, for the past couple of months, the media was giving a hike. The fatwa was there,
that what clothes she's wearing, the miniskirt says
it is prohibited. And there's a big un cry, all the media all the television channels going to Muslim scholars, is it right or wrong and most of them saying Rama, Rama, Rama and blowing it out of proportion.
This is what the media does.
It uses information and the way it presents it. So non Muslim thing. What kind of religion is this? There is a sports woman and the religion is trying to stop her. What is then Islam is how we can change it. What is wrong is wrong. But how can you convey the message is important. Allah says in Surah chapter number 16 verse number 125, odo Allah subhanaw taala become a nygma. While Mars is a hasna. Boy, Jonathan Villa has an invite all the way of the Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue with them and breathe in with them in the ways that are best, most gracious.
When I was given the opportunity,
I normally don't speak to the media. I've got my own reasons.
The normal media and I'll tell you why. later on. I'll tell you why later on. But we normally have a weekly gathering in Bombay where 100 question answer session or a few 100 people who gather there.
And then this question was asked to me and I told him, that he should know how to reply to the media. My first question to the international media is that why are you going and asking the Muslim Allah the Muslim shoe? The Muslim scholars, whether the clothes Sania Mirza is wearing is right or wrong? She's only 30 foot seed. How much 30 foot seed? Why don't you go and ask the Christian priest about Serena Williams, Serena Williams deceit. Number one, why don't you go and ask the Christian please.
That was close enough.
William is wearing his right or wrong. Why don't you ask? Why don't you go and ask the pope in the Vatican?
That the clothes sarina Williams, and most of the people above Sania Mirza 33 majority are Christians. Why don't you go and ask the Christian priest and the Pope, the clothes she's wearing is right or wrong.
If you read the Christian Bible, the Bible says in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter number 22, was number five, the woman shall not wear clothes that fit perfectly to a man and a man shall not be a woman's clothes, all those who do that are an abomination to the Lord. It's mentioned in the First Timothy chapter number two was number nine, that the woman should be dressed up modestly, with sobriety. They should not wear braided hair, or gold, or pearls or costly array.
A Christian woman is supposed to be covered.
You see the example of the nuns, how are the nuns, the nuns are disturbed by the muslimah. If they've seen the photograph of mother, Mary, Bella, be pleased with her. She's completely covered from head to toe, only a face and hand up the dish to seen
you go and as the pope or the Christian priests, if a nun takes out their job, and if she plays tennis in the skirts, what will you give? What opinion Will you give
us? Every Muslim or every Muslim woman is as pious as the nuns according to them.
We should know how to reply to the media. There were two groups amongst the Muslims. Most of the mouth and shoots they said it is wrong a couple of them. They give the fatwa right from where I don't know. But the so called modern Muslim inverted commas. You know what they said? In sports? Why should Islam come in between?
One Muslim politician said that these shoes, these rumors, they don't know what sports so they should keep their mouth shut
and telling this politician if he does not know Islam, he should keep his mouth shut.
There were Hindu politicians who said that Sania Mirza is the pride of a country. Any Indian who speaks against Anya Mirza is a dish though he is
I told that any person who supports the clothing of Sania Mirza is going against the Vedas.
Because the Hindu VEDA says Enriquez book number 10. him number 85 was the machete the woman shall not make clothes of the man and the man should not wear clothes of the wife. It further mentioned brick weighs book number eight. him number 33
verse number 19. It says that Brahma Almighty God has made you a woman, so lower your gaze and wear the veil. So in Hindu scriptures wearing skirts is Allah, so any Indian new supporting wearing skirt, I told that
Hindu politician is going against the Hindu scriptures
in the firing line,
the Hindus Is it the Indian culture?
there was another Hindu politician who said that this is international sports. All these politicians, they belong to the same, but the Hindu, Muslim, Christian.
Most of them, the birds of the same feather flock together.
You know, what did the Hindu politician they said, it is an international sport. So you should maintain the dress code of the international sports.
And people don't know that the cloth Chavez improves the performance.
is okay. I agree with you. We have to agree that the clothes that they prescribe, maybe the performance we bet how much half percent agree, don't argue. But if he industry 20 years back 25 years back 15 years back when women wore dresses, nice playing sports like badminton, they were full dices.
Even today in Iran, women are wearing full dresses,
wearing scarves and playing
even if I agree with you that the performance is better wearing shorts. I'm asking the Hindu politician tomorrow if beach volleyball becomes an international sport, will you send your daughter which
beach volleyball becomes an international sport? So will you send your daughter wearing a bikini to play beach volleyball? Will the Indian culture give you permission and we have to agree that in swimming pools are less nose so that they can perform better
That there is a genuinely very brief
and the woman they were beginning, but you have to understand and agree that if you went no clothes, you will get the best performance. So will you prescribe the woman to swim nude?
Why the double standard? You said no, no, that is immodest. So your modesty level is your, our modest level here.
There is a cutoff point is important.
What is modest for you isn't modest for me. So why don't you prescribe that informing the men and the woman they should send nude? It will improve the performance but no, they have the modesty level.
So we should know how to reply and turn the tables over. Unfortunately, we are like sitting ducks. We have made ourselves a laughingstock in the media.
Coming to the question, how should the old man's reply and not against dogmas because they aren't trained in the media? Normally,
if someone asked me the Islamic viewpoint, what does Islam say about Sania Mirza? Being a sports woman and she's very such clothes.
Is that or is it wrong? My reply would be before I speak about Sania Mirza, I would like to tell you that there are Muslim gents who play cricket in Indian teams and the other teams, many of them don't have a Salah say Muslim says in the book of Salah that the difference between Eman and cafe Salah Salah is the most important pillar after coffee. Very important, the biggest sin after she is not offering Salah.
So according to me, the Muslim James sports men who play cricket and don't have a Salah, a bigger sinner than Sania Mirza at least Sania Mirza offer Salah
the Muslim actors and actresses they do Shere Khan the screen. They are bigger sinners.
I'm not trying to defend Sania Mirza have to agree. deplore Sanja, measles bearing is against Islam, it is haram. But before I say this, I am diluting the effect. This is achema and diluting the moment that the Christian is against it. The figures diluted Hinduism is against it. The diluted Judaism is against diluted I'm speaking about swimming. I'm speaking about cricket. But then I give the answer. It is haram. It goes down the throat very well. Otherwise, they cannot digest it.
I'm saying that fine. At least Sania Mirza is offering Salah she's a lesser sinner than those Muslim cricketers who don't have a Salah full day cricket fighting cricket without Salah Allah has given her a diet offer Salah maybe tomorrow, she will be proper Islamic laws inshallah.
And the question whether she can play enemies gathering? That's another question. That doesn't mean I'm giving a fatwa she's doing it right. But the Muslim should know how to turn the tables over how to give a reply with a comma. The moment you get this reply, the whole thing is tuned down. Unfortunately, we make a laughingstock of ourselves in front of the media.
Normally, I don't give my interviews in front of media Why? Suppose I'm giving an answer of five minutes. Most of the time, they purposely edit it and give a different picture of answer. Sometimes, due to lack of time they shorten it, and in ignorance, they give a different answer.
So either they do it purposely most of the time, so that if my answer is effective, they will cut it and edit it.
And the whole answer will seem to be something else. or out of ignorance while making it short.
The answer seems to be different. That's the reason I purposely avoid though I get calls from various media, various international media to give interviews and on I avoid most of the time, inshallah, when we have our own channel,
then we can have the correct picture, give them copies of a tape, you want to show show this if you edited the full version is there on our channel inshallah.
And starting a channel is one thing which is difficult. Second is starting the channel and running on the guidelines of Quran and Hadith is more difficult. So inshallah I pray to Allah subhanaw taala and you pray that we stay on the right track, in the channel on Quran and Hadith, and be able to convey the message and I'd like to end the talk with the verse of the Quran of Surah Surah chapter number 17 verse number 81 with a book called Jarl Huck was
in Nevada Karnataka went to Turlock and falls falsehood false would perish for falsehood is by its nature bound to perish waka Dhawan Alhamdulillah bellami
misinformation about Islam
some of the international news channels
for for peace,
Islamic madrasahs should be banned, why
very informative lecture, may I ask you
not to proceed
Jazakallah for your patient yering May God reward you.
Now we come to the presumably more interesting session, the open question and answer session
before we start the session
for an idea, can I know from the audience
how many present here have considered
after Dr. Zakir Knight's talk, Islam stands for the peace of humanity can you raise your hands please?
Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah as you stand up and dare to ask Dr. Zakat, rest assured, we take it in the spirit of positivity.
As we respond to your questions.
We take it in a spirit of coming to solutions for the problems of humanity.
As you heard Dr. Zakat speak
on the topic of the day, media and Islam war of peace.
May I briefly state war for peace has become the unjust slogan of many tyrants and oppressors on this earth to priests seems to elude humankind. Islam stands for peace, internal and external. It is essential, therefore, to know, practice and propagate Islam to attain peace and this life and the hereafter. Today we have before us, Dr. Zakaria
a well versed person on the topic of the day
before I begin the crossfire, between your right
to question him and his ability to respond to you may I state a few rules, which we expect to be observed
to derive more benefit in the limited time we have available with us. As we begin the open question and answer session. May I ask the audience to kindly note three points as you put forward your questions to the speaker. Your question should be on the topic of today. Media and Islam, war or peace only.
Your question should be brief and to the point. Preferably in one or two short sentences.
You may ask only one question at a time. For your second question. You would have to queue up again at the back of the room. Three microphones have been provided in this hole. On my right there's a microphone for the ladies. They make
You are behind it.
On my left and in the center. There are two microphones for Jensen to put forward the questions. First preference would be given to the non Muslims to put forward the question
and I request a volunteers present to kindly guide them in the queue. towards the front.
You are requested to kindly state your name and profession before asking Dr. Zakir your question.
With so many peace muscles Dr. Zakir has launched in the course of his talk.
As the coordinator and host for this session.
I urge our volunteers and the many Muslim Brothers present here to kindly give an opportunity to the non Muslims to come forward first, and put forward the questions and if there are journalists in them
a more preference more so. Maybe have the first question from the mic on my left. Yes, brother. Hi, my name is Rahul Bhatia. I'm an engineer by profession. I have a question. In Quran, verse 2247. It says, verily, a day in the sight of the Lord is like 1000 years of your reckoning also in Quran 32 is number five. It says to him on a day the space were off will be 1000 years of your reckoning. And in Grant 70 is number four, it says the angels and the spirit ascend unto him in a day, the measure were of his 50,000 years. So which one the measure of a day is 1000 years or 15,000 years and in the sight of Allah? With Rahul, isn't it? Yeah, same person was yesterday about the city that they did.
Yes, Marshall. I love you, brother. Thank you. I love you too.
Internet all these are common questions. You don't have to be a scholar to know all these things go on the internet on anti semitic site, and you'll get hundreds. I'm sure whether or
not I know that. I'm afraid that I'm going to get more questions. I'm afraid that I'm going to get more questions. So I want to sort these out. If you want to know the truth, you just have to read the direct source if I want to know Christianity, and if I read the anti christian books and I become biased, so my request to you brother often is first go to the good side, read the Quran, then don't ask me to question asked me to
inshallah reply. Even now will reply, okay. But I think in the field of Dawa, I realized that people go to the anti Islamic sites first, and they see negative point they get convinced, and against Islam. If you want to know Islam, go to the good side. Don't go to sites like answering Islam. The thing is that I can actually
The point is, I can actually say speak for half an hour in favor of Islam as well. So I'm not an I'm totally unbiased. But if the reply is your comment for me, nothing new. Yeah, this has been asked to me several times before.
I didn't give references everything Mashallah, the better as the question that took place in the Quran, Allah says that one day in the sight of Allah equals 1000 years, and one person should have marched up number 70 verse number for that one day in the sight of Allah is equal to 50,000 years. So he's in a contradiction.
Like one place it says as in other places, it says that 50,000 years in Arabic, the word used is young.
The word use this young young. Now, john, has two meanings, one of the meanings each day
they did like a 25 day, the other meaning is a period, epoch can be any number of years or whatever it is. So one meaning of yom is the, the other meaning is a period. So now, if you read it correctly, that one verse says that for the appeals to go up to Allah subhanho wa Taala, it will take
1000 years of your acne like one day, one period, which is equal to 1000 years of your acne. The other was savings for America 70%. Before that, for the Indians to ascend
on to Allah subhanho wa Taala, it will take a period of one period, which is equal to 50,000 years. For example, if I tell you that for me to travel, from Dubai, to Abu Dhabi takes one hour and for me to travel from Dubai, to say USA, in a very slow plane will take me 15 years. The period taken for me to travel from Dubai to Abu Dhabi is one of the peak
Taking for me to travel from Dubai to New York is 50 hours, it is not a contradiction, because both the things are different. So you're again when Allah says about the appeals to travel, it's a different time period. And for the angels to go to Allah subhanaw taala it's a different time period. It's not a contradiction. There are two different things. Therefore the time periods are different. So if you translate day as 24 hours, then there's a contradiction. If you translate day as a period, like Allah says, He has created the universe in six days, in six items, it cannot be 624 days, then there's a condition. It is six periods, six epochs, we scientists don't have any
objection to so your to john is a period and all these answers you can go to website IRA dotnet www.irs.net and inshallah most of these answers are there
so so basically it refers to two different things excellent. And and and the word where it's using they're two different words Yeah, one is day in Arabic and the other two meanings meaning is 24 day
period and Is this the word yom has been used in both the
same word has been used to refer to a day all the three verses which are quoted
also, including when Allah says they have created the earth and the heaven in the same yom is used, but the plural is
same is true for Scylla job number 41. You might have forgotten the reference was number nine to 12. The same is used, right? So and that word can mean a day and or or it can mean a year, it only means a period, an epoch. Right? And, and a period can a can be can be one or can be tenors can be 10 years, 1000 years, 1 million years, 1 billion years. And and the two things are actually referring to two different things. So that's why me excellent.
I am, I'm going at the back for my next turn. Thank you. Thank you, brother, all we await your turn. As you come back again, the next question from brother. If there are non Muslims, presently, I would like to ask questions, rest assured, We value your doubts, and we give full respect for them. You have full right to object have a crossfire with Dr. Zakir, we will thank you for it.
If you raise questions, to put Dr. Zakir in the doc, as they say, it becomes a more interesting session for everyone here to understand that's a pressing problem, rather than have less pressing issues. But before if there is no other than non Muslim brother, yes, the wrong
brother. Oh, that's interesting to see you running all over, and some people not coming up? Yes, brother. All right. Okay. The next question which I have in mind,
is that you said yesterday, you go to the line that one of the commandments was said, You shall not make any resemblance of anything that is in the heaven above or in on earth or in the water beneath? Because I your Lord, your God is a jealous God. Now,
do you do you really think that? Don't? I mean, don't you feel that it's a bit petty for God to think jealously, or be jealous of the these things? I thought in my mind that these feelings are limited only to human beings. And God, egoism and jealousy, I don't think are things which, which can be a good question. And I agree with you totally. Why should God be jealous? That is what is mentioned in the Bible. So I'm not saying
that the Bible, neither do I agree that everything in the Bible is the Word of God. Okay, but but we do believe that we should not associate anything to God, that's fine. That part. But why does he get annoyed? If you ask a question, please, after finishing the reply, so if there is a debate, we can have a debate, no problem. Thank
you ask a question. Wait for the reply. If I reply, and we keep on interjecting, not that I don't mind, but that becomes the individual dialogue, which you can do some other time. Now. I'm sorry, fine. You ask a question. You ask a second question I gave you time. But then if we keep on talking, it will be like, yeah, I can do a deal. So even in debate, we have time, 15 minutes, 15 minutes. You call the very good question that I quoted a verse that saying that thou shall not have any given image of anything. Above and beneath and water beneath the earth, Thou shall not bow down to them to serve them for I the Lord. thy God is a jealous God. It was a quotation from the book of Exodus from
the Old Testament, chapter number 20, was Timothy two, five, and the book of Deuteronomy, chapter number five, verse number seven to nine. So this is a condition of the Bible. I don't consider the Bible
completed with the Word of God. So the first part of that verse, I agree is correct, because God cannot have images. But the second part that God is jealous, I don't agree with that.
That particular portion. So that is the reason that you should ask to the Christian, not to me, I'm not here to support everything of the Bible, what matches with the Quran, I will support what doesn't match, I will not support therefore I do agree with you that it is unlike God to be jealous on that thing. Nobody answers the question. But we do we do say that we should not associate anything to God. Yeah, and God, this is a biggest sin which will never be forgiven.
That was verified yesterday that associated partners. Thank you, brother. Are there any non Muslim than any of the mind this question is by a Hindu, as names given here SP nine.
He says Muslims are blessed to mankind. What about non Muslims who by birth? are not Muslims? What stage of life? Do they understand Islam? Was the question that according to a Hindu, the Muslims are a blessing to humanity 100 less than 100 Allah, but a non Muslim is not a Muslim by birth. So at what stage of life with understand Islam? Before I answer the question, I would like to make a point very clear. Our beloved prophet who masala Sallam said, that every child is born in genius, the fifth myth in a religion, every child is born as a Muslim. Later on, he is influenced by his parents, by the elders by teachers, he starts doing idol worship, fire worship, and then he becomes
a non Muslim. Therefore, according to Islam, every child is one of the Muslim that means he submits his will to God, later on by extraordinary influence, he may become a non Muslim. Therefore, when a non Muslim become the Muslim convert is not the appropriate word convert means going from one track to the other track or going from one field to the other field, the right appropriate word is revert, revert me originally was a Muslim, it becomes a non Muslim then comes back to Islam. So the right word is revert. So every human being is born sinless. He's born as a Muslim, later on, he goes to the wrong track. Now coming to your question, those who become non Muslim, not that the bond non
Muslim everyone is one of the Muslim, those who become non Muslim by the influence of the parents, etc. At what stage
do they get the message? Different people get the message a different stage. Like a person who is born in a Muslim, if he's born in a Muslim family, he may get the message from day one.
He may be born in a Muslim family but they may not be practicing Islam we may get later Some may get day one Some may get after one year, some two years and five years some time you whatever it is Allah Allah. Some people are born in a non Muslim family, they grow up, they may get the message in childhood, maybe in school, they may get in college, whatever it is different people get in different times. But irrespective whether a Muslim gives them a message or not, Allah says in the Quran
in surah facilite chapter number 41 was number 53 Sanu Rahim I Athena Fela faki Buffy unfussy him, Hatha Yoga Bejarano are not that soon we shall show them over signs in the furthest regions of the horizons and into the phone until it is clear to them that this is the truth. So irrespective whether they get the message from Muslim or not, Allah subhana wa Taala gives the message directly by showing me signs in the folders notarizing until it's clear to the human being, I may give a message a non Muslim Iran understand, when Allah gives the message he sees to it, that the message is clear to the non Muslim until he realizes that this is the truth, this is the heart later on,
after he gets the hash. He may agree he may not agree for his ulterior reasons for ulterior motives for his personal reasons. Now before he dies, inshallah Allah will give the message. Now when Witcher Allah knows best, but before he dies, so on the Day of Judgment, therefore the Quran says that those who reject the faith, they will never complain to Allah subhana wa Taala that I didn't get the message. Why are you putting me in hell, then only say that Please forgive us? We are at fault because they know that they had gotten the message. But they did not accept it. They'll only say to Allah that please give us one more chance. It's too late. So Allah will surely give them the
message before they die. Hope.
Yes, brother. I am Mahesh. It was a eloquent and scintillating talk today also.
My question is
in the Holy Quran, there is a surah
by Prophet Muhammad, the Hubba Lama, he says, The thirsty is gone. After breaking the fast, he says thirsty is gone and veins are flowing with blood can you throw light on
What's up brother Mashallah has requested the translation with which we break a fast with and appreciate the brother that Mashallah is coming in. He's trying to understand the region of peace, there is no truth. And again I pray to Allah smarter give him an ayah the brother does that what does it mean that when we break the past, that when we break the fast we pray to Allah subhanaw taala that the thirst is gone and the veins have been vanquished, that before we break the fast we made water last month that when we are breaking the fast, we are praying that the thirst is gone. And we are having the food and the water and upgrade our last monitor that we were able to complete
the past. And now the time of breaking the fastest day, and now our thirst is going to be vanquished and our hunger guru language so that is a dua saying that now, our thirst will go away by the breaking of the fast. This is a dua which we do before breaking the first question.
My name is Dinesh Ganguly, I am an engineer by profession, and a freelancer journalist. Presently I'm reporting this for a paper.
I would like to ask you the question answer session. My first question to you. Are you proud of your country?
Normally, journalists does one question. And after give the reply, the second question is strapping.
But but but but
let me finish it. Let me answer I know, let me finish to this allegation, notice, have this discussion precisely. My shoulder should allow you Thank you. I'm not blaming you. I'm telling most of the journalists, I'm not saying you are the same category, you may or may not be already. Already you see most of the journalists see normally. So one thing is whether I'm in the field. If a person wants to ask only one question he asked, and he goes, he says two questions. See, this is logic. And he's waiting for the first answer. And after I give the first answer, the second question is trapping. If you put both the question together, then the trap will not be the best. For me, no
problem answers the same. Whatever your second question is, I'm proud of my country, India
is one of the few countries in the world which gives the right for the citizen of India to preach, propagate its religion and practice. I'm proud of my country.
You have answered my second question abroad in many ways. You have answered my second question. Thanks.
Thank you. Can we have the next question from the system? This is another question by a non Muslim, Hema, Fatah, postman, she writes, you said there are some sheep in Muslim community doing wrong things which media is propagating? Aren't these Muslims giving media a chance by doing it in the name of religion, which misleads non Muslims? The question was the non Muslim is a very good question, that there are some Muslims of black sheep in the community. And these Muslims giving a chance for the media to propagate wrong things about Islam, these black sheep, Muslims aren't actually Muslims, a Muslim will never do things which are wrong.
A Muslim by definition means that the person who submits his will to Almighty God, not these people who are black sheep, they are pseudo Muslims. That name maybe Muhammad, Abdullah Sultan, whatever it is, by name, you don't become a Muslim, you become a Muslim by deeds. When you submit a bill to Allah, you become a Muslim. So these people actually are not true Muslims, but they're Muslim names. So they aren't bothered whether they're given a chance to media or not, because they aren't bothered about the religion, because they're not bothered about the religion. But see, they are not bothered so the least bother what's happening. But I'm blaming the media. Why is the media picking up the
minority? If majority of the Muslims are doing this? And then you blame the religion? I've got no problem, but they are picking up this minority. Imagine if I tell you that Hitler incident is 6 million Jews cannot blame Christianity for that.
If Hitler incinerated 6 million Jews killed 6 million Jews. Can I blame Christianity for that? No. Because nor does the Bible say that you have to kill an infinite 6 million Jews, it will be diminished on my part. So therefore, I am blaming the media more rather than the black sheep. The black sheep are going to be in every community and I even speak against the black sheep in many of my lectures. But the media is supposed to portray a picture which is true. They can't become black sheep and portray as though they exist.
Muslim or they should say, Okay, this Muslim has robbed. He's only one of five or 10 amongst 1 billion Muslims. I've got no problem. But the portrait as though every Muslim is doing something wrong if one Muslim is caught in drugs as the majority of the Muslims dealing drugs. So this is what the media portrays is wrong which object to the media should portray a fair picture? That's what I want the question.
Congratulations and best of luck for starting peace TV.
I request all the audience to give him a big clap.
My question is, why is it imperative to circumcise in Islam?
The brothers posed the question, is it imperative is it compulsory to circumcised in Islam? Is it for whether it's not for Islam? It is as soon
as soon as a maka highly recommended so
in Islam to circumcised it's not a fad. But there are various reasons for that is being a medical doctor. We are here to talk only on my assumption should be done but it's a question answer time I'll just give you a few points. Today science tells us that if a man is circumcised, he has less chances of having carcinoma of the penis of having cancer of the penis. less chances, negligible chances. If you're not circumcised, there are chances. There are various diseases, which can be prevented. If a man is circumcised in circumcision, we can refuse the foreskin
of the origin
of the penis. And here, we realize that we're a normal person goes for the oil of nature. Many of the units that are droplets of the urine remaining in the pews and the foreskin, this causes various diseases that can cause a chain that can cause inflammation of the skin, it can cause parasites, this many things. So all the diseases are preventative, circumcised. And beyond that, when we go for the fall of nature, even good water will prevent the further a person play science tells us he enjoyed the sexual life more if he circumcised than non circumcised. Furthermore, the chances of various other irritation of the skin is not there for circumcised. Today latest research tells us
that a man who's circumcised has less chance of having AIDS.
The virus of AIDS can spread faster. If you're not circumcised. There are various list of diseases which are prevented. That's the reason today in America, more than 50% of the boys after they're born, they're circumcised non Muslim.
Even the Christians in America, the doctor asked the parents, do you want your son to be circumcised and more than 50% of them are circumcised? Not because Islam says that? Because they know it is a benefit for the son. Hope that answers the question.
So I'll come My name is Imran Mohammed, I'm an IT manager. My question is regarding the media and conspiracy theories. How should the Muslim respond to conspiracy theories such as America's trying to take over the world? suppressing Islam etc, etc. All too often I'm finding Muslims who are not educated in Islam correctly. Dive into the conspiracy theories more than the knowledge that we should be acquiring. How should the Muslim respond to see conspiracy theories? The brother has asked the question that how should a Muslim respond to the conspiracy theory by the American etc against Islam? And we don't have our own knowledge. What should we do? Brother The first thing we should do
is we should know our theme.
Unfortunately, most of the Muslims do not know their own religion. That there is this problem. If we know Dean very well, this media would not have a chance to say what it's saying. Unfortunately, we ourselves don't know our theme. And that's the reason when the media says many things. We Muslim become apologetic, we tend to agree. I'll just give an example. There was a very good pious Muslim, Mashallah. He comes and tells me
do know, these Taliban's they're very ruthless people, bad people. I said, Why?
Because the beat the woman who told you I fought with my own eyes, when you see he sort of BBC.
See, I'm not here to defend the Taliban. They are not my friends. Neither are they my enemies. I haven't met them and nor defend them. But when I keep on traveling and meet people, I was in Malaysia giving a talk and there was a couple. Both of them are doctors.
Know the gynecologist and a pediatrician. Most of them are doctors. They spent more than a month in Afghanistan, trying to help the injured people. And that lady doctor
She told me the short they show on the television, a Taliban hitting the woman, the Taliban. And how do you know? It seemed because I've been in the Taliban's? I know how they tie the turban For example, we as non Arab, we will not find a difference between the way the Qatar is tied of the Arabs. But ERP knows that the way an Emirati ties or tries different the way of how the time is different the way acquittee ties is different. They know we don't know. So she been with Taliban. She knows that the way the turban is tied in that shot. It can the Taliban. So even the shooting that in Hollywood where they did, I don't know, they didn't do a good job.
The media can change anything. For example, if I asked you
that, how is George Bush? Is it good or bad? You say is not good. For example, I will chop off the knot. And the sound. Dog bush is good. When I show you your own recording, you say oh by slip of the tongue. I said he's good. actually didn't say that. You said he's not good. I chopped off the note. I'll show you see this is the other you have said is good. So you will say again, it was simple. It wasn't slip of the tongue, you wanted to say is not good.
I chopped off the knot. And it sounds like he's good. So this is the media plays game. So we as Muslims, what we should do that we should know our religion very well. We should know our Deen very well. And when anyone replies, we should not be swayed by how they portray Islam. And to judge Islam. We should go to the authentic forces, the Quran decided we should not look at what Muslims do, or what the Muslim society does. To judge Islam. I'm not gonna judge Islam, by what the people in India are doing, or Pakistan or Taliban or Saudi. I'm going to judge Islam based on authentic sources, the Quran and the Hadith. So this strategy we use, and when the media portrays something,
we should know how to turn the tables over.
See not the person who has to question you only have one question
511 the first answer only
was the thing you didn't expect.
He didn't expect me to say
that I'm proud of my country. He thought I will say I'm not proud of my country.
I'm really proud of my country. Not that I'm telling a lie. I'm proud of India.
And that is the battlefield.
by my name knife.
In Sanskrit, nag means
have to be in the battlefield.
After do my job.
Therefore, I want to live in Miami people said, Come here, come there people are giving me they're giving me offers to stay in different countries. Now life is in danger. We have to be in the battlefield. That's my battlefield. I love my country for many reasons, for many reasons.
And I'm proud of that. So therefore, a Muslim should be trained in the medium in the reply to turn the tables over Hope that answers the question.
Yes, sister, Salaam Alaikum. Doctor. Now, since I'm in the media, I think this is a very relevant question, which at times has come across our mind, I'm the editor of a trade journal in Dubai. This is pertaining to actually the al Qaeda organization and Osama bin Laden. All of us know that when he was fighting the Russians, and he was fighting communism, and what they did in Afghanistan, he was the hero of the masses. Now, many years down the line, this particular hero has turned into a monster. We all are aware of that. Now my particular statement is this journalism is supposed to be objective. It is just supposed to see, report what you see, you're not supposed to infer anything,
you're not supposed to come to any conclusion while reporting. And here the Western media, they created the rules, and they're breaking the rules. This is exactly what is happening. And the thrust of your lecture of all these during these two, three hours was exactly the same. They change the rules and play with the rules. How can we as Muslims as peace loving Muslims draw the attention of the world to this thing, which is happening? Like for example, let me give you something all the ills of the world all the violence is blamed on Al Qaeda and we have heads of state giving irresponsible statements like such and such a thing. It's by Al Qaeda. How do you think as peace
loving Muslims we counteract something which we see as which is not again talking about the rules of journalism, there is influence there is opinion, these things should be separate, but they are being mixed in the news and being given to us. They are being dished out on a platter to for the world exactly to believe what they believe in that Islam is a terrorist religion. Do we have some certain Hadith or do we have some guidelines
To show us the road and to show us the path as to what to do now, after a good question. She's in the field of journalism. And she said that,
previously, Osama bin Laden when he caught with Russia, he was a hero. And Osama bin Laden was created by the Americans. And later on when he goes against the Americans is called as a terrorist. And as you rightly said, in the rule of journalism, they have to report objectively, and they should not give the opinion, then friends is supposed to be made by the leaders, not by the journalist. This is a rule. But rules are made to be broken.
In America, freedom of speech, freedom of speech, according to me, the least freedom of speech in America.
Freedom of speech, you can speak as long as it doesn't hurt them. If you don't speak against me, you can pick what you want. But if you speak against my interest, then maybe the car will catch you.
The wind to me it's only a big fast it's a hogwash.
Freedom of speech.
regarding a question, how should you respond?
Regarding Osama bin Laden is Danny Hardy, etc.
And I was asked this question
in Australia a couple of years back, Consul General of USA. To put us in the first question. I gave a talk on terrorism and jihad. He asked me
Do you agree? Osama bin Laden is a terrorist? Yes. First question.
was told to the Consul General. As far as Osama bin Laden is concerned, I haven't met him. I don't know him.
And neither is neither am I his enemy. I don't know. I cannot base my judgment on what I see on the news channels. on BBC CNN. Allah says in the Quran in surah, chapter number 49 was number six, that whenever you get information, check it up before you pass it on to the third person. So what they show on the media on CNN and BBC, I cannot base my judgment on what I see on CNN, BBC, because I know it is manipulated,
unless it's confirmed what the show is the truth.
And when you're deadly when she came from Afghanistan, she was asked, What is appealable? Al Qaeda? You know what she said? I doubt whether al Qaeda exists.
So if you're going to base on what they show about Osama bin Laden, CNN, BBC, I cannot give my judgment and love Allah modesty, but CNN, which is controlled by America, I come to know from there, that they have killed 1000s of Afghans. They've attacked iraq from the very channel. If the person owns the channel about the shows, and is proud of it, it's confirmed what they've done is there. So if you ask me, who is terrorists number one are going to meet is George Bush.
This I've mentioned and Kimmel headline in the statement that doctors are kidnapped says he's a fundamentalist. And he calls george bush as terrorists number one headlines in the papers of Australia. Do you know there was a survey done recently? Recently, there's a survey done in the new state of Chicago, they did a survey, and they gave names of three people.
Three people, number one, Osama bin Laden, number two, Saddam Hussein, number three George Bush, and then it has served in different countries, different cities, different states, that Who do you consider among Muslims or non Muslims together? Even non Muslim? Who do you consider terrorists? Number one? The answer was the same. The answer was coming. It was George Bush.
The lowest percentage was 74% 74% of the people said george bush was number one, and the highest was 78% said that george bush appointed the most is number one, not me.
Find vbl the one of the few people who was vocal people normally get scared to speak
our beloved Prophet, no masala solemn said
that if you see something wrong, stop it with your hand.
If you cannot stop it with the hand, stop it with your tongue. If you cannot stop it with the tongue, the least you can do is curse in your heart. And then you will be the lowest level of woman.
So I'm very vocal. I speak the truth. Those people who are like given the power to stop it and if they don't stop, allow your question then. At least Allah gives you the power to speak. So I'm speaking at least
I said the same thing in UK in front of the chief of the police in front of the mayor. I said in USA, I said in Australia, I said in Malaysia but I stayed with sigma
Take my seat.
So if I was given the power to speak, if I try and
take away this power,
Allah will take away the power of mine to speak.
The least you can do is curse in your heart. And today the non Muslim nothing. Leave aside Zack and Nang, the majority the non Muslims today, according to a survey done by University of Chicago in USA. They say that george bush is number one. And if you go on the internet, there are statements I'm not saying right or wrong. They say that what happened on 11th of September it was an inside job. Some of the theory says that george bush didn't himself.
regarding a question, how should the Muslim be? See what happened after seventh of July in London? There was a bomb blast.
All the Muslim most of the Muslim scholars in USA that got together and they condemned it.
And UK did the same. I wouldn't like to name them. I know many of them. They condemned what happened on 11th September in New York, is haram. It is wrong. We condemn it. What happened on seventh of July in London, more than 50 people died on 11. September, more than 2000 people that we can name it.
Full stop. See what they said is right, I don't disagree. Quran clearly says in Surah majda chapter number five was number 32. If anyone kills any other human being, unless it be for murder, or for creating mischief in the land, it is as though yes kill the whole of humanity. I also to condemn if more than 3000 euros and people have died in the World Trade Center on the 11th of September. It has to be condemned if more than 15,000 people died in London has to be condemned, but don't put a full stop. I also condemned the 1000s of people that have died in Afghanistan have to be condemned.
The 1000s of people that died in Iraq have to be condemned. The 1000s of people that have been butchered in Boston have to be condemned. The people that have been killed in the land of Palestine has to be condemned.
As the American tells me, no, you know America is a different if you speak to Margiela problem as America as a country of freedom of speech,
what are you afraid of?
people know Bombay, the situation of Bombay is very bad. At least in America and London you can speak and get through. No people say that Zakat don't you get death threats. This is part and parcel of my profession.
It's part and parcel of my profession. Then the Prophet get the threats. We are following in the footsteps of the Prophet,
Allah subhanaw taala to practice, but speak the truth speak with igma. So if you have to speak if we can then be condemned killing innocent people is wrong. We agreed that what happened when more than 3000 people on lemon supreme was killed. It's wrong. We condemn what happened in London is wrong. But you also condemned the other atrocities done.
When a person steps a bomb,
and blows himself up and kills 2030 innocent people he's called a terrorist.
But when a person throws a bomb from a plane,
and kills 1000s of guns, he's called the brave American soldier. What bravery is it
in individually up anyway?
What bravery is it from toppling bombs, that also it blows into another 50 bombs. So we should know that Islam is the religion of truth? And I started my talk and end the answer of this also with the same condition of surah. Sri chapter 17 was the medium and he says vocal jar battle in Nevada, Karnataka went through the dialogue and falsehood. False would perish for false that is bad news about the parish.
And we continue on with the session. The fire of faith, igniting the same fires in you the next question from the Bedouin Malema. My name is Norman I work in the field of internet travel and marketing. My question revolves around the strongest form of media. Today is movies, movies, originating from hollywood, bollywood lollywood. And probably now, Dollywood in Dubai.
Fortunately for their benefit, it gets the message across in many forms. Passion of the Christ was one form that related a story about Jesus Christ. It was the script was in Hebrew, I wanted to first ask how much of that was
in line with what Christianity preaches and how much we can relate to Quran as well. Obviously, there's some deviations as well. But again, the masses took that understanding and absorbed it and that's what their understanding is. My second part of the question is
How can we use the media in form of movies to effectively communicate the message of Islam? Like it was done in the form of the first movie called the message from which I understood a lot of people converted to Islam after watching that movie does not
question that movies do play an important role in creating opinions, and conveying the message, hollywood Bollywood now of Nollywood, not with new words that come to a media city.
And you have the example of Passion of Christ. What are my views of such movies, brother, I haven't seen that movie Passion of Christ, but I wanted to see it. I haven't seen that movie. Normally, I don't see movies. But there's been a particular movie, I wanted to see it.
But I read reports that after this movie made by Mel Gibson, the way he portrays, and he kept it in the original language, there were a lot of criticism, and the VA created it, and which was slightly against the Jewish Lobby, because of that there was a hue and cry, but it also became popular in the negative sense. When you speak something negative, it became a box office. So they did break the records. He was walking on the edge of the sword, he invested so much money if it went a flop, he would lose millions of dollars. It went ahead. And it had many things which were right. Many things would agree with Islamic point of view, many would not agree with some point of view, as far as the
second question is concerned on message. And I've seen that movie message made by Mr. Parker and Anthony Quinn, or acting as Hamza Lopez with him the way the movies are made excellent. I really appreciate one of the best movies
on Islamic line, I would say is the message
Alhamdulillah without showing the hero without showing Prophet, Mombasa lasala without showing his picture without showing his wife hamdulillah the whole picture was revolving around the hero prophet masala Salam without showing his picture without his wife, one day show his camel and his staff that's it. But the way the angle of the camera was that to show that the Prophet did not like any turn the face away, the angle of the camera changes to the direction was superb. It was a masterpiece. And we do require such more movies, but the budgets of this movie that it turns into millions of dollars, millions of dollars. So the budget is dead, but it did make a lot of money must
have occurred. Then he made the phone call
talking about not 100% Islam we're talking about a Muslim which also did create a box office and now we do require such movies but we see to it that whatever you create it should be aligned on Islam Quran and Sharia. There was something which I don't agree everything of method is right. As a whole It was good. There were things which were wrong also in domestic women as a whole It was good as a whole It was good. What we have to do that we have to create online this some Sharia without breaking any laws of the horrendous ad and portrayed in a way same way not only movies, we have to make docu dramas. We have to be serious. We have to make documentaries.
Because in the media, it is a white elephant, white elephant. You know if you know about Kaun Banega Crorepati,
it was a copy of
who was to be a millionaire. On an average, they spent $1 million
more than four crore rupees only on one episode. one episode only
45 to 50 minutes
in Bombay, when labor is cheap, for Amitabh Bachchan is expensive.
So the thing is that the budget is there. Surely those people or philanthropies would like to sponsor such they should sponsor such friends and make such claims so that we convey the message but I like to believe micromotor Allah Allah karma from the new movie that has been made, the kingdom of heaven. It was made by a very famous director, and he portrayed incidents, how the Crusaders attack and they killed 1000s of people. And then somehow being the hero, he comes. And he should as a hero, there's a big hue and cry in the Western media, that how good he makes the Teflon. He's a Christian. He only portrayed what was fact in history, but it did not go down the throat of the Westerners
doesn't make us cry, but because the person was a very famous director 100 light did not do much damage. But if a non Muslim makes us from the kingdom of heaven, that famous I did not see. But I read the reports that it did a marvelous job it conveyed the true picture to a great extent. So such friends should be encouraged to answer the question.
Assalamualaikum. My name is Amina luxury. I'm an accountant by profession and I'm proud to say that I come from your nation from
Your lecture on Jihad was very impressive and very educative. My question is most of us I'm sure here have failed or are under the impression that Osama bin Laden is doing jihad.
Now, most of my colleagues in my office and in back home, they asked me that easy doing gr. Now we are lost, like we don't know how to convince them. And my second question is, it is not jihad, or do we call this activity?
Islam? The question is Osama Bin Ladin doing jihad, whether I haven't met Osama bin Laden?
I don't know him personally, I cannot base my views on what I see on CNN, BBC. Therefore, I will not comment. Because I haven't met him. Many news I know though I don't meet the Pope. I haven't met george bush. But because it is shown on CNN, I can judge the intelligent person that what he's doing what they're showing is correct.
But I can tell you I'm doing jihad
on the lumberyard, I'm striving.
I'm striving to be a philosopher that just needs to strive to struggle.
And that's what I told to the American Police also, I am rigid, I'm striving and struggling. What is doing? I don't know. I haven't met him. And neither will Allah question you on the day of judgment that did Osama bin Laden do jihad or not?
I'm speaking on behalf of my parents. My question is that what is your advice to the Arab world?
to help the Muslim media especially in India,
the question posed by the young brother asked on behalf of the parent, that what is my advice to the Arab world as far as helping Muslims, in particular in India's concern?
See, depending upon times, Time keeps on changing. A few decades earlier, the Arabs came to India to do business in near the top of the world. And Mashallah many of us Indians, when they give Zakat, it even helped many of the Arabs in the country now, Allah has given the black gold
to the Arabs, Mashallah, now they are rich. And now we find that the Indians come to the Arab oil to do jobs, to do business coming to Dubai coming to Saudi hamdulillah The thing is, as far as my advisor is concerned, that as far as Muslims are concerned, I feel what I said earlier, that it is the duty of every Muslim to convey the message and more facility Allah has given you Allah will question you more.
On the day of the admin reveals the wealth Allah gave you What have you done with it? So my advice is the more facility Allah has given you allows me to the torchbearer has given to the black goal. So you have to utilize this for the spread of Islam not only in India Alhamdulillah in India there is no problem Mashallah, but there are people
India has got problem I'm not saying no, but uh, hamdulillah we can take care of ourselves. There are people who do require their orphans in India or friends who live in other parts of the world, and people are supporting them. There's no problem at all, but generally, as a general answer,
as far as the Arabs are concerned with Allah given the black gold, they should see to it that they spread the message of truth. Personally, I know many Arabs with the pocket money they can open five to 10 channels with the pocket money, five to 10 channels along
the way. So surely my request to them is that they utilize the Nam Allah has given for the good things for the spread of the deen so that it will benefit them in the era. It will not benefit Islam Islam doesn't require you and me.
It is for their own benefit. Allah says in the Quran, Allah does not require you what you require Allah subhanho wa Taala so surely on the Day of Judgment, it will help them
I am nervous.
I am working Alcala trading.
sells man. Now music is yada yada. Muslims know.
Now we are starting peace TV Alhamdulillah media's video
I've noticed my Michigan around
that all the Muslims know that music is haram but when we start a channel they'll where it is made so any activity is made music is haram Allah see what is haram is haram if it is haram in Saudi Arabia mean us that I'm in USA or I'm in India also unless the life is in danger
but if our life is in danger alcohol The only dog that can save you That is the only exception to the rule. If your life is in danger to your without advertisement, inshallah channel won't be in danger.
See, that's why I said the channel is difficult. Running a channel on Islamic lines is more difficult. Therefore I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that made people on the diet if he cannot done on Islamic line we will close the channel inshallah.
Islamic line we will close the channel.
Because being on the Islamic Sharia is more important than starting a channel. We should not compromise we can't reach to the truth with haram means what is haram is haram, what we can do, we can substitute with Allah,
we can substitute with Allah. For example, if the musical instruments around the deaf is allowed, we can use natural sounds like the caching of water, like thunder, lightning, chirping of birds, if you see the programs of IRF in the study, they fixed up you will not find that music is missing the we don't use music, but the way it is presented with the natural sounds etc Alhamdulillah it has if not equal some way close to the effect. But a good effect did not take you away from Allah subhanaw taala it will take you towards Allah subhanaw taala. So you can use natural sounds. And we will not allow any ads which are haram
any ads which are on whether it be
ads containing of alcohol, whether ads of interest based companies or banks, whether it be involving
or exposing a woman etc. Those who want to give
the most welcome otherwise we don't require them. We require the help of Allah which is more important hope to answer the question.
Yes, brother. Hi.
This one more question. In the Grand 96 chapter number two, it says, created man out of a mere clot of congealed blood. I was listening to the Hindi translation translation of this as well a few days ago. And it said that monkey Boone same. Aaron Boone severnaya banana. Now we know that
like this, this is common knowledge now that it's that we're actually not born from a known drop of blood. It's a drop of semen. So I do see a translation of another verse it says then fashion V, the drop in brackets semen, a clot of congealed blood, then fashion v the clot a little lump. So that means it puts the blood in the second stage but I don't think that comes to towards the later stages of you being a doctor can probably throw more light.
When we have asked right person.
Quran says in Surah chapter 16 verse 43, and chapter number 21, verse number seven, first Hello Alice decree in cuando, la tala. If you don't know as the person who knows, I'm not very knowledgeable, but in these few things, I'm knowledgeable. I'm the number onaji person. I'm just a student of comparative religion, and I'm just a small doctor MBBS. But in the field of speciality. The same argument was given by Dr. William Campbell. There's a person by the name of Dr. William Campbell, who's a medical doctor and got a PhD writing a book against the Quran. He wrote a book saying there are 30 scientific errors in the Quran.
And for eight years, no Muslim replied, so the American students economy for a debate and I went to us in Chicago a few years back, and we had a debate on the topic, the Bible and the Quran in the light of science, and one of his arguments on the same on you post that the first two verses of the Quran to be revealed,
of surah Allah chapter 19 verse number one and two he says, a crab is Mira because he collected in salmonella read recite a proclaim in the name of the Lord who created who created man from a congealed clot of blood. He said that this was basically copied the Greek first thought
that you made me the made from blood. It's an old theory, which is proved wrong. And as a medical doctor, no yes, human beings are not made from blood. So Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him in research. He copied from this CD and copied from that Greek and a big lift, he made research
and he said she masala Salah knows Beloved Prophet Muhammad he copied from the Syrian from this and he gave a big lineage very guarded from his research. his PhD did he the PhD
Doctor and a medical doctor. Then He further goes to say that all the translation you read,
it says, blood, blood blood. But latest, some of the Muslims translate alaka as a leech like substance.
He knew it. You don't know. He knew it. But in defensive thing, they have to take the meaning what was present at the time of revelation of the front, we can take a meaning which is understood today. At the time the Quran was revealed no one understood it as Lich and is right.
Therefore all the contemporary fossils you read, all say blood, none of them say Allah is
Allah Carter three meanings, a lot of blood, something which leaves and
And probably the Keith Moore was shown this was the Quran. He goes under a microscope, he says, I don't know it looks like a leech. He observed the early stages of embryo and a microscope and compare it with a photograph of a leech. And he was shocked at the striking, exact resemblance. So today's medical science confirms that the embryo looks like a leech. But his argument is you have to take the meaning what was prevalent that time Not today. And he gives the example that Quran says And the Bible says don't ask pig. But today in America, pig also refers to a policeman. So what do you say Quran says don't need a policeman. And the people started to laugh.
I couldn't say anything because he was speaking I have to follow the rules. But my turn came to speak. And I said, what Dr. William Campbell says, Is correct as far as the Bible is concerned, because the injury was revealed only for that time and for those people. So whatever meaning was given in that time you have to take but the Quran was not revealed only for the Muslims or the Arabs only for that time it was revealed for the whole of humanity until eternity so you have to take all the meanings from the time of revelation three is the day of judgment all the meaning should be taken into consideration
can be one is correct can be all are correct.
And this William campbell he's practiced in Morocco even know the Arabic language.
So doctor, medical doctor, MD, am only MBBS is better than me MD. PhD.
Knows Arabic language, I don't know because the language.
So we added a bit. So I said, as far as the Bible is concerned, find only the meaning when it is revealed has to be taken for the Quran, all the meanings, and what meaning is today, he has no objection, because of the Keith Moore, who is one of the highest authority at that time in the field of embryology. He confirmed and wrote in his new addition that the embryo looks like a leech, so he cannot object.
But we also know that the second meaning it clings something was playing this correct, because the embryo clings to the uterine wall. The latest research also says that in the initial stages in the embryo, the blood does not circulate so it looks like a congealed clot. So even the congealed clot is correct with science as testifies today.
What the Quran said that it made from a congealed clot. By appearance, it looks like a congealed clot. By function. It links to the uterine wall. And by shape, it even looks like a leech. So hamdulillah all three are correct, even if not is correct, even something misplaced as well, at least I hope that answers the question.
Yes, clearly conducted. My name is Emma, I'm a revert to Islam. First of all, I have been in Dubai for 18 years. It's the first time that I've heard the true meaning of jihad. I mean, I must say most of the Muslims don't know. I'm sorry. My question is, is there a limit and upper limit or an extent mentioned in Quran that you can go to in order to fulfill your Jihad? Sister Mashallah accepted Islam religion of peace, and I welcome and congratulate her. Thank you.
And she agreed that she did not know the real meaning of jihad she has come to know today Alhamdulillah she said that what is the upper limit a person can go to fulfill the level of jihad sister the best Jihad highest level? Is jihad against your own self, just enough highest level
and you can go to any level which Quran gives permission. You should not break the Sharia, whatever you can go the highest level, but within the purview of Islamic Sharia. You can't go outside the purview of the Islamic Sharia. So the best jihadi jihad against your own knifes
and for example, we have the example in the life
masala masala you have the revelations at the time, which was revealed during the time of Makkah called Maki sutras. We have the examples of Magni Sutras, the major difference in mckees, Raja mo talking about Iman and stenting, etc. And the magnitude of how to establish the dean Kamata, Dean about jihad. We know that in Medina, when the Muslims became more powerful, compared to before, there was war, etc, talking about jihad, et cetera, talking about the Qatar fighting of war, but
the Jihad that was done at the time of Makkah, when the Muslims of Makkah, when they tortured and killed many of the Muslims, there were people who could fight that 100 Hamza, Allah be pleased with him, happy with him. They wanted to retaliate. They were warriors. But the Prophet said, Do summer, summer was the jihad.
If you have the power to fight back, and you hit back, it is good. You have the power to head back and you're told to suffer, and you don't hit back. That is a higher level of jihad.
The people want to say, who are these people killing my brother, I want to fight back I have the power he was called as a lion of the desert.
People used to fear him. But the Prophet said you have no permission. So his dad was controlling himself Saba.
Jihad keeps on changing in different times. Jihad sister doesn't mean only going in the battlefield. That's one type of jihad.
And how did I shadow the law on the life of the Prophet? she asked the Prophet that should we go for gr talking about going to fight in war? prophets that is mentioned Sai Bukhari on number 400. Number 278. For the Prophet said, the best year for you is to perform a perfect hedge.
And the time is mentioned and say Buhari, a person asked the Prophet, that should he go for jihad, talking about the Qatar fighting? The Prophet said, Do you have parents who said yes, the best year for you is to serve your parents.
To the best he has keeps on changing depending upon the situation.
At the time it mentioned,
the prophet said, to speak a word of truth against a tyrant ruler is the best form of jihad.
That doesn't mean that for every one serving the parents is the best form of jihad, because the Prophet knew that his parents required him.
So depending upon the time, sister, the best type of GFT fun changing, and what is the best level you can go, you can sacrifice whatever you can. And during one of the cheetahs, one of the Jihad Prophet asked the Savas, what the maximum we can give you give in charity for the cheetah and very famous lady, hello Tamara, when he was a very rich, very rich person he was he bought half the wealth, and he gave to the Prophet. And he said that, Mashallah, I've given half my wealth.
And he thought that he was the highest, indicating that he will get the best of reward. Isn't he the best?
The Prophet replied Khalid Abu Bakar,
the first pillar of Islamic law and he gave his full verse, so he will get a better response.
In terms of quantity, the wealth that Hazrat Abu Bakar gave was a very less compared to the wealth given by Heather tomorrow the loan, but the percentage he gave 100% to the suburb that he will get will be much more than other Omar Mallaby peace with him. So he gave everything of his wealth,
he will get a better reward. So whatever permission Allah gives you in the Sharia, you can go to that extent for performance. Yeah, I hope that answers the question. Thank you.
Allah. Now I would ask the question as to note, we'd have one question on the slip and one on the question, Mike.
Again, on the slip again on the question nine and so on, the next question from the slip
from brother is one and he can't suicide bombing in the light of Islam. How justified it is in Iraq or any part of the world as far as suicide bombing is concerned.
of the well known scholars, Sheikh Nasser dinamani Chipman, mas, share with me all word trigger scholars Madlife Muslim ramola
that they have given the fatwa that suicide bombing per se is haram. It is haram
but there are other scholars like shaycarl hawala
like Sheikh Salman Oda,
they have different use, but you should realize that the term suicide bombing
per se, committing suicide in Islam is haram.
There's no doubt about it. But as far as suicide bombing is concerned, the scholars differ what they say that the word suicide is a misnomer.
It's a misnomer. In suicide, a person is fed up of his life, and he will to end his life. In this, they say it is a strategy of war.
The main intention is to cause loss to the enemy. And while doing that there are high chances that they will die. So therefore, it's a strategy of war, which scholars I salmaan or the state is right. But it does not mean that any Muslim wakes up in the morning and ties a bomb and goes, most of the scholars including salmaan, Eau de sakalava, they say it's Haram. Anyway, suicide bombing, as I mentioned my talk, it is alien to Islam.
It's alien to Islam. But there are some Muslims in Palestine or Iraq have done that. But they say if it is used as a strategy as a last resort, when many of the Muslims are being killed, and they want to see to it that instead meant to die alone, they will kill some other people. And the main intention is to cause loss as a strategy. Some of the scholar says that it can be used. And as I mentioned, my talk that in Iraq, suicide bombing wasn't until
USA came to LA and appointed Robert Pape, who's an expert on suicide bombing. He said most of the suicide bombing are done as a social cause, as a political cause against the military power to remove the military power from the country. So this is what is set by Robert Pape, and his book, dying to win. But even if you do, you should see to it that these scholars who also give permission, they say that it should be under the guidance of a scholar under the guidance of a person based on Islamic Sharia normally should not kill innocent human being. You can't kill innocent human being. It's Haram in Islamic Jeremiah chapter five. Taking all this into consideration. In some cases, some
scholars give permission it can be done, have done so the question? Yes, brother, Salaam Alaikum. Sir. My name is Mama terasa.
I have a question for you. It's a non Muslim question. Actually. He's sassy. You won't believe any religion. So he asked me the question.
Who created the God? God created us and who created God?
So how should answer him? question that on non Muslim atheists asking the question Who created God?
The answer is that it is like my friend, whose name is john. His brother jack was admitted to the hospital he tells me mother john tells me that my brother jack was admitted to the hospital.
He gave birth to a child. Was the child a girl or a boy?
girl or a boy? Can you guess? Maybe I don't know.
How can a man give birth to a child?
jack? is a brother
of brother john admitted to the hospital give birth to a child girl or a boy.
The question is illogical.
A man cannot give birth to a child. Similarly, the definition of True God Allah is is uncreated with the question Who created God is illogical? The moment I say so and so person created god, he's not God.
There's nothing like him. So the definition of God is he's uncreated.
But the question Who created God is illogical. The moment I say who created God, that thing cannot be God. God, by definition is uncreated. He creates everything else like us. We are dependent on him. He is independent of anything how to convince
is you can refer to my video cassette is the Quran God's word, which gives this answer as well as how to convince an atheist about Islam. Is the Quran God's word predict in detail how to convince an atheist. Thank you, sir. Thank you. The next question on the slip. Did the media play any role against Muslims relating to September 11? The question posed is did the media play any role against the Muslim
regarding September 11, it is no hidden secret. The media says that there were about 13 or odd Arabs went in a plane and crashed on the World Trade Center. How they came to know in the crisis they found a passport
imagine 2000 degrees centigrade. So the next joke was that next time
the clothing of the American soldiers in the military should be made of that passport.
Everything born with the passport size.
Then the news tells us that this Muslim Arab, he had gone to an alcoholic bar one day before boarding the plane. Imagine a human being wants to give up his life. He knows he's going to die. And he goes to the alcoholic bar being a Muslim.
Where do they get the information from? It is nothing but to malign. And who did it?
Osama bin Laden did it.
Imagine CIA which has a budget of billions of dollars a year
FBI billions of dollars a year.
Even a bird cannot fly on the Pentagon without be noticed. And a plane can crash the Pentagon.
Later on their various theories, am saying here is the fact how it happened. When they analyze the whole marine Pentagon they say it cannot be made by an airplane.
So all these are just to malign the Muslims. So the media is utilizing this. It's a big as some of the theories say it was an inside job. The way the World Trade Center collapse, it can't be a plane hitting. It was an inside job, alum. But whatever happened. However, they tried to attack Islam, macro, macro level local marketing, they plan and plotted Allah to plant Allah the best to plant and assemble in spite of this, the media attacking Islam yet today, Islam is the fastest growing region in the world, including America and Europe.
Salaam Alaikum. My name is Dr. Khan. And I would like to ask you that, is it allowed in our religion for women to use media for the propagation of Islam? Because some of our scholars don't allow us to record audio cases and bring back home so that maybe make our husbands listen on all that? And is it allowed or not? And how can we convince them? Thank you. My sister has a question that can Muslim as a Muslim woman, take part in media to convey the message or to fight against a will etc. And according to us, some scholars have been forthright ceram mister certain things Surely,
you can write articles which no scholar will say it's Haram. You can add articles, whether in the newspapers, whether on the internet, surely certain things you can surely take part. As far as the print media is concerned. As far as the audio media is concerned, that difference of opinion. Some scholars say some scholars say no. But normally the voice doesn't come in the hour of the woman. But natural but normally to be effective. You have to modulate your voice. So if you take care that you unnecessary, don't moderate and don't haggle, and don't haggle. And don't do too much of laughing etc. Most of the scholars say it can be permitted, as far as coming on the television.
Again, difference opinion is that
most of the scholars, they say that woman cannot come on the television. There are many scholars who say that if she's in proper job,
she's covering yourself completely, and only showing your face and handle up your wrist. As long as she's not too much complacent in a voice and following the Sharia. She can be permitted. But the majority the scholar said, No.
be allowed to come in front of the television. Because the Quran says is renewed chapter number 24 verse number 30, say to the believing man that he should lower his gaze and guard his modesty. So based on these verses, another Hadith, the scholar that divided but recently last year, that top Salah scholars, Salafi scholars, like Sheikh Nasser an hour out in Saudi Arabia and have shot that he also gave permission that a woman is she's properly dressed even though she's not in the car because the car is not offered in Islam. So some scholars say yes, but I've understood NASA, Taliban etc. lockup covering the faith is not farther than Islam. But today many scholars, not majority, yet
there are few in numbers that are many, but in percentage, there are a few good scholars have given the fatwa like Sheikh Nasser, I was in Saudi Arabia, that because of the media, we should permit woman to come into television. But even today, the opinion is divided. Majority of the scholars today say that yet a woman
should not come on the television, because it would be against the verse of the Quran in Surah Surah chapter 24 verse number 30. Man, a man is supposed to lower the gaze. If she comes on the television that are not met. I'm watching the television so she cannot come to the opinion divide the system. Whichever you feel is more closer you can take your choice. Hope that answers the question.
The next question on the slip, Brother amatola. What is my responsibility?
As an individual Muslim to prevent false propaganda of Islam by the media, more is the responsibility as a Muslim for me to answer the false propaganda the media is that you should be well versed or have knowledge of your deen Islam and reply to the don't become apologetic as I mentioned meta reply. Be confident, be proud to be Muslim and see to it that you have knowledge and also you yourself are practicing Muslims. If you're not a practicing Muslim, you're propagating wrong thing about Islam. So first you yourself practice what Islam has preached in the Quran, the Hadith, and whatever your non Muslim friends pose questions. If you don't know the answer, Quran
says as the person who knows go to the internet find the right answer. Ask the person who's expert in the field and give the reply Don't be apologetic. Be confident you're Muslim, and give a reply with hikma with reason logic and science based on Quran and Hadith have done so the question?
Yes, brother, Salaam Alaikum. My name is Shahrukh Khan, and I'm a student. First of all, I would like to congratulate Dr. Zack Nyack, because not only the Muslims, but everyone here has actually brought up here. So basically, my question is, recently in the Indian news channel, there was a case, like the daughter in law was raped by her father in law, and it was a Muslim. So basically, the mommies gave it like that she has to marry her father in law, and her husband is no more husband. Do you have your see on that?
Liberty again, that's picked up a very important issue
of the media. And people may be aware that a few months back, there was a girl by the name of a Madonna. She was raped by a father in law. And the fatwa was given by the majority of the Indian scholars ALMAZ.
of the fatwa that because she was raped by the father in law, she cannot go back to her husband. She is haram for her husband. Not the moment the media finds something which is interesting and can malign Islam, they pick it up, and they blow it out of proportion as though there's nothing else in Islam but this issue
with the Indian press what they did.
Most of the Chinese currencies knew that the old man the shoe, the malanez
of Islam, they say, a girl
she's raped by the father in law. She's a victim.
But what does Islam say? Instead of supporting her? Now Islamic attorney, she cannot go back to her husband. She's around for the husband. And they use this news and they blew it out of proportion even till this day today.
I always say that if you don't know how to answer the media, the people should be trained.
And later on after a few weeks, there was some other Muslim scholars said no, no, no.
She's got her arm for the husband. She can go to her husband. Whoever is given fatwa that's haram for the husband is wrong. We are fighting like cats and dogs in front of the non Muslims. We are washing our dirty linen in public.
The joke is that both a group of scholars are quoting the famous of the Quran to give a fatwa, the joopa scholars who say that she is haram for the husband. They're quoting a verse from the Quran from Surah Nisa, chapter number four was number 22, which says that you cannot do nica with the woman who your father has the niqab, it now in Arabic nikka has got two meanings. One meaning is marriage, and the other meaning of sexual intercourse.
And you ask any Arab who's well versed with Arabic will tell you yes, Nick has got two meanings. One is marriage, the other sexual intercourse. Now this first group of scholars which majority belonging to a group of their own, they take the meaning of nikka as sexual intercourse.
So if you take the meaning of nikka session and because the verse of the Quran says that you cannot have sexual intercourse with a sister, you cannot have sexual intercourse with the paternal Auntie with a maternal T. And you cannot have sexual intercourse with that woman who has had sexual intercourse with your father. So based on this, they say that father did sexual intercourse with the woman. Now that woman cannot do sexual intercourse with the son. Therefore the husband becomes Haram.
The other group is fighting. No, it is nikka and we are fighting like cats and dogs. We should use a hikma in the
point number one.
What happened with him Rana was not sexual intercourse. It was the novel's Jabra, rape. The different men rape and sexual intercourse.
And rape is not conducted in Arabic. Why? Number one, that answers? No no, no, you're playing with words. It is the same. No problem.
See, as I told you, if someone says something wrong,
there's a technique of debating if someone says two plus two is equal to five, instead of arguing is okay, take 200,000 dirhams take 200,000 dirhams Now give me 5000. He said, No, no, no.
turn the tables over. So when I was asked this question, I told that I agree with you for sake of argument, that nicomedes sexual intercourse. So the verse of the Quran would read, that you cannot have sexual intercourse with your sister, with the paternal Auntie, with the maternal Auntie, and with the woman who has had sexual intercourse with the Father, that means grant this permission, you can have sexual intercourse with a neighbor, woman with a woman on the street? They said, No, no, no.
If you mean they can be sexual intercourse. So Quran says don't do sexual intercourse with your sister with a paternal anti maternal Auntie, and the woman who your father had intercourse with, but you can have sexual intercourse with a neighbor woman with a woman on the street? And the answer is no. To the right meaning is nikka means marriage, which reads you cannot marry your sister. You cannot marry your pattern and anti American and anti and you cannot marry the woman that has married your father. Well, surely you can marry the neighboring woman, you can marry the woman on the street. So with hikma without fighting? Who is right? You give this and no Alma will ever say that
you can do sexual intercourse dinner with a girl on the street. So you your hikmah and the problem is solved. But unfortunately, we are fighting like cats and dogs in front of the media and making a mockery of Islam. Hope that answers the question. Thank you very much.
The next question we have from the brother on this mic. My name is Samuel Lynette. sales executive in a electrical company. My question is, normally the media is influenced by the state, the media is controlled by the state and especially in a Muslim country, I'm in the Middle East, where the Arabs are they so how now what I have heard in the talk is generally it was for the general public, but how the rulers of the state can improve the Muslim media. In this level, we have a certain mentality that the Muslims have got me to not that they don't have, but they are mainly concentrating on the Muslim themselves. In India, we are mediated only by the Muslims in Pakistan, or humiliated by the
Muslims. We have your Arabic media Arabic channels are there many good and bad many, but they're mainly focusing on the Arabs. That is fine. If the channel is good in Arabic, it should continue. I'm not saying it is wrong. If it's a good channel on the lines of the Sharia, like mother channel, etc, the good channels, that is not sufficient. What I'm telling, you should have a media and the language, which is the international language, so that you can change the view of the International people, you can change the view of the world only by telling that Muslims are good among the Arabs, most of them are Muslims. It says something great, we should have a media in the language, which is
the international language. So my request is that fine. You may be ruler of an Arab country. But why don't you launch an English Islamic channel, which propagates the true teaching of Islam, and it is shown throughout the world.
In America, and Europe, in Australia and Middle East and Asia, why not? So that we can change the view, at the same time convey the message of Islam, which is further than every Muslim
brother was on the slip. The name is Keisha Roman. In the 21st century, we have people from all over the world to earn their bread and butter from the Islamic world. But tell us how we Muslims don't have any media parallel to BBC or CNN. Why?
Have you heard the full talk on Islam and media and the person who asked me why it is like the full story of Romeo and Juliet is over and asking me Romeo as a girl or a boy.
Whether the full talk I gave on Islam and media, why we don't have it's our fault.
The full talk was based on that. Maybe the question was it in before might have started? Therefore I prefer you know, asking how many people have the question in the mind before and write it down and irrespective of the talk is they give the question. So the full talk was based on that. Again, you can take the video cassette and CD as many times as you want.
Yes. I salaam aleikum, doctor. My name is
Ali. I wanted to ask you if we are allowed to watch cartoons.
The brother has really asked a very good question on the topic that are we allowed to watch cartoons today. The National Survey they say the maximum damage done to any child is the satellite media.
On average and American child sits seven hours in front of the television, more time than when he goes to school. Most of the
changes that take him away from Islam, including the cartoon channels, most of them, what do you see? There's so much avoidance etc. So a person sees a violent movie regularly, whether it be cartoon or other movies, and he has a fight with his friend. And he takes out the gun of a father and he kills his friend.
And Bombay, there was a cereal for the children, somewhat similar to cartoon called Shakti man, somewhat similar to Superman. So one young child, he jumped from his house, in a tall building, thinking Shakti man, Superman recommend save him, no one comes and save them, and he dies.
And when an interview was taken of that Father, he said, I could not imagine my son would jump, maybe tomorrow, your son or my son will jump.
Therefore, the impact of the media is so great that it blinds the person and it causes maximum damage to the children. That's why we have started a school in Bombay by the name of Islamic International School, one of the criteria to get admission is that it should not have a cable TV in your house.
No satellite TV, it's the size and
it's a sight and so people ask me,
then how will we watch piece TV?
point number one by watching HGTV if you're allowing hundreds of times and it to come in your house, don't watch any that is better. Let the small loss take place to prevent a big loss. But we have made provision that if you have a special dish and a decoder you can only watch TV or no other channel.
So we'll see through that availability in the middle east by a dish investment a few 1000 rupees or a few 100 dirhams. You'd have to pay monthly, whatever fees that are paying out there are 200 250 billion monthly invest a few 1000. And all the people in the building can watch have one decoder it will only cash speech TV and no other channel.
What we have, we can't create a vacuum. This is haram This is haram. There shouldn't be a substitute. So we tell the parents of our school don't watch cable TV, but we have what 5000 tapes on Islam and comparative religion every day. If you watch one for three hours, it will take you more than 13 years to complete the library. So by the time your son passes the school or your daughter passes the school every day if you watch one, yet you don't complete the library and the next 13 years we may have one more 5000 inshallah.
In our Islamic videocassette library we have cartoons for children, but they are on Islamic lines. So surely my son you can watch cartoons which are based on Islamic guidelines, talking about the Quran talking about the death of the Prophet Marius counting we have got but these cartoons get you closer towards Islam, not away from Islam. Otherwise, the other cartoonist Tom and Jerry, Batman, Superman, they have no moral value. They take you away from Allah subhanaw taala there's so much of violence. So Viagra Islamic cartoon like Muslim scouts and various other cartoons like for this was done, which had a moral story, and it gets the person towards Islam. To my son if you want to watch
cartoon was the Islamic cartoon which takes you towards Islam, but not those cartoons they take you away from Islam Hope that answers question.
The next question on the slip from Red Mamba who sent us a deal.
At the time of Prophet sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, when he was alone, the coffers anti propaganda turned in favor of Islam. Don't you think this time also it will be the same? The question posed is that at the time of Prophet, many people who did propaganda against Islam, they turned in favor of Islam. And that is what we should always want. I remember the second last time I was in UK, I gave a talk on terrorism and jihad. And similarly, the question of Osama bin Laden was there. And I said that the reply which I gave you, that the main person to blame is George Bush as a terrorist. There was a youngster who got up from the audience and said, death to George Bush, and people clapped.
Now, as a die. I'm trying to convince non Muslims of UK with hikma and a youngster gets up from the audience and said that to George Bush, and believe me, all my effects gone down in me and I,
everyone clap, I got up. And I told our beloved Prophet, there were two boomers,
who were very strongly against Islam. And a prophet prayed to Allah. At least give him that one, Omar and Omar
Abdullah, he accepted Islam. So we should pray to Allah that give that to George Bush.
Why should we want that dog bush is a strong enemy of Islam. If Allah give them Daya, he will fight in favor of Islam. So we should pray that Allah subhanaw taala
Allah give him to George Bush give guidance and when I make this statement no media can blame me what I said is wrong. So we should answer with in mind we pray to Allah Spano tala, that you should give that to such people. I mean,
that winning over rather than defeating the spirit of Islam. The next question from the brother on the left. A Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. My name is Khalid Hussain, and I'm working as an electrical engineer in EDS, one group of companies. My question is, does Islam permit media because during the time of Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wasallam there was no any means of mass communication as mentioned by you. So could you please justify by quoting any of the sutras or any sign he added?
Thank you. Brother has posed the question that at the time of Prophet homers de la Salaam, there's no mass media. So does Islam permit media can you quote a Quranic verse or Hadees below that point to be noted, as far as a body is concerned, what is mentioned is further there is a law of the Sharia.
In other things
in the mama the day to day life, what is mentioned as Haram is haram, everything is halal. For example, pork is haram haram alcohol is haram what is not mission halaal I must be a question Is there any Hadith or chronic both we say that you can have mango is there any of it?
So we lose a mango is haram.
So in terms of worship, what is mentioned the only do that nothing is in terms of how to lead a life what is mentioned Haram is haram everything in Allah Pseudomonas
eating mango, and I love mango.
Because I come from India, and I brought up my content a lot of the manga of my country.
So first of all, you should give me contrary approve a hadith or Quranic was saying media
yet yet, yet, but I will give you proof.
Prophet numbers Allah salam,
what he did, he dictated letters to non Muslim kings to the kings of Amazonia
king of Yemen of Persia.
Asking them quoting the verse of the Quran of Solomon chapter three was number 64. Holy hell Kitab. So people have the book tala electron within Salah, a man of a nickel come to come in terms as a new which is the first term I learned up with Elon law when I Michigan as a young that we associated partners with him, well if he's a bonobo than Alibaba, when the new law that we erect not among ourselves loads and paid other than Allah, Allah, if then the turnback first will Lucia do see bear witness. We are now mostly moon that we are Muslim Baba coming to Allah. He dictated the terms and he sent them on horses. Today's It was a nice car on to call jet planes in different directions,
asking them to accept this noun that was media that they
imagined dictating letters after dictating, arranging horsemen to go in different directions. He utilized the media to the best of his ability but he had one law today prophet Mama salasar was alive. I feel you'd have used the media with the best of his ability, but within the purview of the Islamic Sharia not utilizing anything which is haram haram things should not be used, but what is halal? Like a knife can be used for good purpose and that purpose. So nice person not Haram. So media person is not around the majority of the thing on the media. What we have to do is use it in a halal way. turn the tables over
within the purview of Islamic Sharia utilizing the halal way, certainly we can testify to Allah subhanho wa Taala that inshallah we tried our little bit more difficult to convey the message, because our job is to convey the message.
Our job is to deliver the message, giving hedaya enhance the philosopher natella Hope that answers the question.
The next question from 10 V and con for giving the answers
to Hindus or non Muslim media, should we have to read Gita Bible etc.
The brothers pose that to give the answer to the Hindu or the media should we read the Gita or the Bible? It is not further than Islam. It is most of you can read. Because this is what Allah says the verse I quoted earlier, in the earlier answer, Suliman on chapter three, verse 64, says, dialogue, electoral meetings of our men and women come to comment terms ask us and you know, how will they come to comment them until we don't know what the scripture says? In this context, we should read their scriptures not fun. I feel it is most of it is one of the strategies shown by Allah subhanho wa Taala and our Prophet when a prophet said boldly go, undeveloped.
propagate even if you know one verse it's hard to say Bukhari it continues and says, There is no problem if you quote the scripture of delicata. So quoting the scriptures of the other religion is one of the techniques shown by a prophet and mentioned in the Quran. So if you can do this, it is the best, but you need not become half of the Bible, half is of the VEDA, a half is of the Gita. You should know the verses which are important for the Indaba should not waste your time doing gives you can do
not waste your time and neither am I in the habit of the Bible, neither of the Quran, I would like to be but I'm not neither of the way that neither of the Bhagavad Gita but I know those
verses of the VEDA which are required for those verses of the Bible, which are quoted by Christian missionary, so you think I know more than the Christian missionaries inshallah? Alhamdulillah I know, but I have mastered this art
which you know, that Masha Allah is the person who inspired me. May Allah grant in Ghana.
He was a great inspiration for 1000s of gemstones including me. So the thing is that you need not waste time but you should know that potion which is required for Dawa and to convey to them. The message of Islam as Quran says, which are similar things tala can within survived by an American. If you do this inshallah it will help you to convey the message of Islam.
I understand there are lots and lots of questions, but we have a time to keep a deadline to complete. So we'll just allow one or two questions. One question on the slip is from Chucky lemma JazakAllah. Doctor please tell us all Muslims, what is a share to run a 24 hours Islamic channel we are ready to invest?
Whether ask the question, what is the rate?
What are the share and what to invest?
time in permit me to speak about the god channel. As I told you about the god channel, I just showed you in brief, this God channel which is the most popular among the Christian channel, it publicizes that if you give one pound
a year, it will help in giving this message of God channel to five homes every year. That means if you give 20 pounds the statement says it will go to 100 homes every year. If you give 200 pounds, it will go 2000 homes every year, if you give 1000 pounds 5000 homes every year, this is how they're
what channel is minting money.
See, as far as pstv is concerned, there are many projects that have been known by Muslim that to invest this money and we get so much profit and you will get returned etc. As far as we are concerned.
It is not a commercial channel at all our channel, whatever you put in, you will get your returns in Accra, inshallah,
multiple times Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was number 261. If we saw one grain in the way of Allah subhana wa Taala Allah will give you seven years each year bearing 100 con that means 700 times profit in business terminology 70,000% profit and Allah does not stop there he tells he will give you multiple more. So whoever helps in this channel insha Allah in the Hara, he will get multiple times of reward, whatever it is, people are most welcome. Again, what you will get is not depending how much you give, depending how much percentage you give. So if a rich man gives me a lot of money $100,000 a million dollars. But a poor man gives $100,000 or a million
dollar, maybe just less than 1% of his wealth. But the poor man gives me $10 which will be 50% of his saving, he will get more
and the channel will run mainly because of Allah. See what I do. I don't consider myself to be an intelligent person, believe me, I have the stamina of people who know me. From childhood I was just amateur. If you ask me what my name is, my name is Ozaki.
Can that person therefore read the draw of masala Salam was also stammer rubbish Elisa de mycelium Bri Melissa, Callie oh my lord, expand my best for me
remove the impediment for my speech, so that the people will hear me so it is Allah
I don't consider very intelligent. So in this channel so basically regardless hell and Allah this way is how he has people. So whatever a person is, in charity, I always say
look at the percentage.
It is rich people don't look at the amount of giving. You decide that inshallah, besides the fact that I give, I will give 20% of my earnings
Every month 25% 30% see when a person is poor, he wouldn't mind Okay I will give maybe 20% of money, which may be supposed $100 but when he becomes a billionaire that 20% becomes a million dollars then his heart takes you know millions of dollars but he failed to tell the person you've got in your car for
a good businessman should increase this percentage. So all the rich people that when you donate, stipulate a percentage of income,
the money per se, so do business with Allah subhanaw taala the best business you can do the last one, the maximum returns you will get.
So put up figure 20% 25% 30% of what I am going to spend the last month besides that, and inshallah you will find that Allah give me more in this one and the Hara Hope that answers the question.
The next question from the brother. Yeah, so I want to go. My name is Reza Ahmed. I'm in sales and marketing profession. Well, my question to doctor is,
we all know that, that the Western media is giving a wrong answer about Islam and Muslims. We all agree that, but the worst part and the painful part is how come in some of the Muslim countries and also in this part of this world, even the media is using the same title, terrorist and all to those people, whether as a question that the non Muslims are using media, and unfortunately some of the Muslims are using that word. So that's what I'm asking you to go and ask those people not me.
That was those people and what happened that many of the Muslim due to ignorant they start agreeing, as I give you the example, a Muslim coming and telling me the Taliban so bad, he was ignorant, not that he was against Taliban. So many times we get so convinced with the media, what we hear what we see, we start believing in it. So what we should do we as Muslims should remove the cobwebs even from the eyes of these type of Muslims, besides answering the non Muslim media, and inshallah, we should be logical, not just by saying we are right, we are right. We should prove logically that Islam is a religion of truth is the origin of peace. And only way that they can be totally peace in
the world is no other way. But by Islam. Allah says in the Quran in Surah Al Imran Chapter number three, verse number 19, in the Drina, in the line Islam, the only way of life accepted is Islam, that is be acquired by submitting a will to Allah subhanaw taala
the last question of the day from the Lady smilla Rahmani Raheem, I am Dr. For those. My question is that we know from the hardest there trishula sallallahu alayhi wa sallam told us about the fitness or afflictions of the jar.
And according to some of the Hadees we are informed that the jar will reach every house, he will show you what which you cannot drink and he will show you fire which will not burn you a can we consider TV to be one of the afflictions of the germ sister that was a question that I had a talk about the doll which as I heard it, there are some scholars including she has quoted that that some of the scholars said that this television no candidate the gentleman at the jar screen is only one eye so this is the job. So can we consider this as the jar there's no Hudson TVs that jar whether TV is or not? In order to do a beloved coffee masala Salim said that when you stand for Salah don't
leave any gap, closing a gap so that there's no place for the shaitan say Bukhari one number one book of Isaiah chapter 7500 3692. The same idea is repeated in so number one number one in the book of Salah chap number 240 500 number 666. That when you stand for Salah stand shoulder to shoulder, closing the gaps so that the Satan doesn't come, if you if you consider this as the gel, you can look at the gel into Muslim chain this TV media into a true media and propagated.
There is no proof that television is at the job. But even if you consider it to be at the job, what we have to do is we have to use this media to propagate the hack so that we can testify to Allah subhanho wa Taala that we have tried our level best to convey the message to the world and give the message of Islam to the whole of humankind.
