Salam Alaikum I'm provacan I'm working as an supervisor. Firstly, I would like to know there is a common saying in most of the religions that whoever follows God sayings religiously, will go to heaven. And if not, we'll go to hell. Taking this into consideration, I would like to know what will be the status of non Muslims on the Day of Judgement. Secondly, I would like to know the importance of the holy month of Ramadan for the benefit of non Muslims who have come here. And finally, I would like to say, from the little experience I have gained in my life, I can strongly say, Islam is the only religion which has clear cut sound theoretical knowledge, supported with logical examples with

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

reasoning

00:00:52--> 00:01:29

has three questions or three statements he had made? The first question was, that all the religions say that if you don't believe in the commandments of God, you will go to hell. What will happen to non Muslim on the Day of Judgment, brother, as I mentioned earlier, the Quran says in Surah chapter four verse 48, and so on. So chapter 416. A life he pleases me forgive anything but the sin of associating partner with what he never forgive. So a person dies as a non Muslim and he associates partner with others. He believes in false gods he does idol worship, he shall never go to heaven, compulsory will go to hell.

00:01:30--> 00:01:39

To go to heaven, you have to believe in one God worshipping alone and follow His commandments. regarding a second question, what is the benefit of the hunt of Ramadan to the non Muslims?

00:01:41--> 00:01:50

Quran says in Surah Baqarah chapter two verse number 83. Fasting has been prescribed to you as it was prescribed to people who came before you so that you may learn self restraint.

00:01:51--> 00:02:29

The reason we fast is because we increase our taqwa our God consciousness, our piety, and Surah Baqarah chapter number two was identified safe Ramadan was the month in which the Quran was revealed as a guide to the whole of humanity and the criteria to judge right from wrong lambdin is this month in which the Glorious Quran the last and final revelation was revealed to the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and the Quran says this Quran is a guidance for humanity not only for Muslim love for the Arabs for the whole of humanity and it is a criteria to judge right from wrong. So this month of Ramadan How does it benefit the non Muslims? Quran was

00:02:29--> 00:02:47

revealed in it as a guidance for whole of humanity Muslims and non Muslims Furthermore, Beloved Prophet Muhammad Salah Salim said Ramadan in the month in which the Satan's they are imprisoned, the gates of heaven open and the gates of hell are flows. That means there are more chances you will do good deeds.

00:02:48--> 00:03:30

A person does more good deeds in them than the chances of evening bad deeds is less. As far as non Muslims, the message of Islam may go very well in the hearts of the non Muslims because the devil, the Satan, the imprisonment for more chances of the non Muslims accepting Islam, more chances will come closer to Islam. regarding a third statement, you believe that Islam has got theoretical points in it. And it is backed up with reason and logic. So when you agree that Islam there are rules and regulations, which are backed up with reason and logic, my question to you in this month of Ramadan, then why don't you accept Islam? It is not a Western of accepting Islam for the matter of fact, I do

00:03:30--> 00:04:02

accept all the religions, all the good things every religion is saying. So I don't have any whether you say you believe in all the good things and all the religions that mean there are some bad things and some religions correct. I do agree strongly agree you're fine. I want to ask you a simple question. What do you think is bad in Islam practically or not come across anything bad in Islam, but maybe in practice, people have done Islam? Don't talk about Muslim Muslim maybe bad I'm not I want Muslims. Okay. Talk about Islam. There are Muslims who are called musumeci i'm not i'm not come across anything that

00:04:04--> 00:04:31

you told me very frankly. You take good things of all the religions. You also said you know that a bad thing in other religions. And you also said you don't know of anything bad in Islam. So now in the other religions you are good and bad. In this religion only good. Suppose that you two glass of water one is pure, pure water, other water pure water and one drop of urine to which water will drink good water of course or pure water. So this is a pure religion.

00:04:32--> 00:04:36

absolutely pure without adulteration. Now, when I realized that is pure.

00:04:38--> 00:04:49

When you're thirsty, you drink the pure order. No, no, I believe it is. But I won't drink it. It doesn't make sense. If I want to get admission into university, I do my survey. This university is the best.

00:04:50--> 00:04:59

Why didn't you take admission through well think about it. If you don't have the money to pay your fees. Fine University is very good but too expensive. I can't afford the fees Islamic

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

Free.

00:05:03--> 00:05:21

If you agreed the best, we have to accept it. Or maybe it's a policy, see if I agreed is the best after accept it. If you know there are no faults, that means God will question you on the Day of Judgment. If you agree, God gives you the message in your heart. It is a best religion. Why don't you accept it?

00:05:23--> 00:05:43

If you agree to the best, it's illogical. It's illogical not to accept it. If you think there's something bad, I will clarify a misconception now, if you agree with the best religion, if you agree the most logical unless you're in logical, if you're logical, you have to agree the most logical region unless you consider yourself to be logical, rather,

00:05:44--> 00:05:50

you know, sometime but the emotions, what will my mother say? What are my father say? What will society the most

00:05:52--> 00:06:01

so these things may prevent you from accepting? I agree, it's difficult. It's not easy, either. But if you are logical, if you are scientific, you have to accept what is best.

00:06:03--> 00:06:07

Therefore, I say if someone proves to me any religion better than Islam, I will accept it.

00:06:09--> 00:06:45

If someone proves to me today, anytime there's any religion better than Islam, I am ready to accept. If someone proves to me Christianity is better, I am ready to accept Christianity. Someone proves from India is better. I'm ready to accept Hinduism. I'm not just talking. I have discussions with the doctors of divinity. With the top Krishna. I'm not a scholar. I'm a student. I consider myself to be a student of comparative religion. But I have dialogues and discussion and debates with the top scholars of Hinduism. You know, the most popular Hindu speaker Ashish Ravi Shankar? Have you heard of him? Very much? Yeah, he agreed with the Quran. I'm a big fan of him. In fact, you're a fan

00:06:45--> 00:07:09

of a Mashallah, have you seen my debate which he should have his anger? Or no, I'm not seeing the debate with your hero. Yeah, she she Ravi Shankar Chen, this trend of comparative religion. inshallah, if I get an opportunity, definitely. And since you agree, even he agreed that God has got no images, he agreed in the truthfulness of the Quran. Unfortunately, he didn't accept it. You know why? If you accept it, you lose all the following.

00:07:11--> 00:07:19

I agree. You agree? Do you have a following? Do you have a following brother? No, I don't have any very good So what will you lose?

00:07:20--> 00:07:57

Maybe some friendship. Maybe some relatives. It's difficult. It's difficult but if you know the tradition is separate. There's nothing wrong about it. Actually, so far so far as I've no I have not thought about this because this is a very toughest and hardest thing in life to meeting today in the month of Ramadan. We asked me how does it benefit non Muslims it benefits a non Muslim is opening the heart towards the truth. So I request you to think it over. If not today, yet. We have another three weeks. Another two three weeks you have to is the month of Ramadan. If not today, except in the month of Ramadan, it will benefit you and inshallah inshallah, I can tell you that inshallah.

00:07:57--> 00:08:21

fixup Islam, all your previous sins will be forgiven 100%. So today if you accept Islam, if suppose you died today, I can tell for sure. You will go to Jana. I'm not sure about myself, but about yourself. I can tell you because the moment a person accepted Islam, all his previous sins are forgiven. If you accept Islam, and if something happens to you today, I don't know about other inshallah. Thank you.
