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

Just one question I have you told me we heard about that the Vedas say that don't make any images of the god. Yeah. Whoever worships anything which has been created, throws himself in darkness, right. The difference between Bhagwan and Allah is that Allah says that if you worship anyone apart from me, I will punish you forever and ever. And I will not spare you of this sin. But nowhere in Hinduism books, would you see that? Bhagwan is saying, Okay, if you worship anything apart from me, you will be put in narak, which is the Hindi word for Hell, forever and ever. Now what? Why I'm saying that to you is the concept of God and Islam, Christianity, and Judaism is the same, in which

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

he feels bad, if anyone worships anything else, apart from him, but the concept of the other side of the religions, which is Hinduism, Buddhism on both sides, the concept of God there, I think, is more the God of those religions is more large hearted, because he doesn't say to you, that I'm going to put you in hell, if you don't worship Me, although, although I understand that it is wrong to worship idols, it is wrong to worship created things. But I do feel that because that I somehow feel that, you know, Kulu Allahu wa allows a Muslim unit when I'm, you know, basically God, there is nothing like him, right? So why in the Quran, or the Bible or the Jews Scripture, we are attributing

00:01:50--> 00:02:34

a human feeling to God, that let us say, my father gives me everything, he gives me all the money, and I give that money to the poor people right? Now, one day if I forget my father, yeah, so my father will feel bad. But this is a human nature. God is more large hearted than that. Even if I don't worship him, he should have no problems, you know, he should not put me to hell because that's egoistic. egoism is a part of human nature, not of God is what I feel According to my understanding, rather, a whole is old friend of mine, Mashallah. Whenever I come to Dubai, no question answer session goes without him asked me a question. If following me since many years, when I gave him

00:02:34--> 00:03:13

2005, and a game last year, and yesterday night, we had a good session for a couple of us. And though he didn't mention his name, he's all Mashallah. And we pray that May Allah guide him in sha Allah Malaga. And he asked very good questions. Always difficult questions. Very good questions. I like it. It's a challenge for me. He asked me a new question. I like challenges. And all of them. He asked a good question. This is my last question, sir. Why don't my last match question before you accept Islam? One of my last questions before you accept Islam. clarify this. I it just struck me actually. He told me he will not accept Islam in public. So I don't know probably.

00:03:16--> 00:03:41

I'll clarify you. And I wouldn't ask you to accept Islam in public. We have done that yesterday. So Islam is a glorious religion and it's given me a lot of fees and I can say many good things about it. But please clarify. and clarify. You told me you have spent more time studying Islam than what you spend time in getting your degree of engineering. It is right yes, right and I enjoyed more. Therefore enjoy your question is also

00:03:42--> 00:04:09

a very good question. Very attacking very tricky, difficult question, that he understands that all the religions, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism, say there's no God, except one God don't make images don't make it just but Islam goes a step further. He will forgive any other thing except the sin of sheer Surah Nisa chapter four, verse 48. So in this chapter four verse, Psalm 116. But in Hinduism, nowhere does it say that if you do share,

00:04:11--> 00:04:12

Allah will not forgive you.

00:04:13--> 00:04:53

Before I ask you a question about lightheartedness. Nowhere does the Quran say that if you commit a murder, Allah will not forgive you? Neither. Nor does the Quran say that if you commit murder, Allah will not forgive you. Does it mean that I will go and commit murder? Rather, repeat again? Sorry, nowhere does the Quran say that if you commit murder, the second largest sin in Islam in the major things number two is committing murder of an innocent human being yes after she is murder. Though the Quran says in Surah Maya chapter five verse 32, that if anyone kills an innocent human being unless then before murder, or forgetting corruption, the land is so you have killed all of humanity.

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

But nowhere does the Quran say that if you commit a murder, Allah will not forgive you

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

Allah will never forgive you. Does it mean that I will go and commit murder? No. Yeah enough same me when the Veda don't mention that if you don't do *, Allah will not forgive you. You should not do Shall I understand I understand very good your understanding person I come to the bar afterwards, I will answer the full question. I will answer the first part of your first question. I'll come to Alaska details afterwards. Yeah.

00:05:27--> 00:05:46

But I like you know, cutting down the questions so that you understand better or if you understand the other people also to understand you're intelligent person no that Michelle engineered and from UK. Daffy told me yesterday. Now coming to your part of lightheartedness. That in Islam, if you don't do this, I'll punish you.

00:05:47--> 00:06:29

That is a human nature, that if the Father gives money to the Son, Son gives him charity. Tomorrow the son doesn't ask about the Father. So Father feels bad. It's human nature. I agree with you. God is far superior. I agree with you to Why does God feel bad? Yeah, very good question. Very interesting question. Inshallah, you will get convinced. I won't ask you to accept Islam in public, that we're done the rest of them. Yes. The Quran says, Allah subhanho wa Taala does not require you, you require him. Now coming to the question. Now I'm making your question more easy. By we have to say Allahu Akbar, Allah is the Greatest. ALLAH ask you to say Allah Akbar, Allah is the Greatest

00:06:29--> 00:06:54

tomorrow if you don't say Allah is the Greatest building Allah will become less No, no, but do you see or not Allah is already the greatest, irrespective whether you say or not, it will make no difference, not even out our differences all into the greatest he will remain, irrespective whether you say or not. Why does he ask you to say that is the question. The question is, Allah subhana wa Taala knows the human psychology.

00:06:55--> 00:06:57

For example, your mother has a heart attack.

00:06:58--> 00:07:02

And now, you have heard of a very famous heart specialist in the world.

00:07:04--> 00:07:12

If you know he's famous, he will give you some advice for your mother, another person who is unknown, he can then give you advice. Whose advice will you follow?

00:07:14--> 00:07:47

Repeat again, sorry, if your mother has a heart attack? Yeah. The person who you know is the most famous heart specialist in the world, I would follow the advice of the specialist why? Because you know, in number one, he's most famous. So the reason Allah asks you to praise Him is not for his benefit is for your benefit. Because the moment you praise Allah, you will follow in advice. By following in that way, the love will not benefit you will benefit Yes, by the doctor giving advice to you. He will not benefit you as you may give him FISA that will benefit. You aren't giving any fish to Allah.

00:07:48--> 00:08:32

So Allah doesn't benefit anything. But at the moment you praise him, it is human, when you say Allah is the most wise, Allah is the Greatest, Allah is the most merciful, most wise, he gives it whether follow most getters or follow him most merciful and follow Him. So you see all these praise is not to benefit them to benefit yourself. Agreed. So when you worship him, it does not benefit them. It benefits you. Yeah. When you follow the advice of the doctor, it will benefit if you give him fees. Yes. You don't give any fish to Allah. Yes, it benefits you. Yes. So same way alive large hearted by punishing you. Do you think he will benefit? No. by punishing he becomes a

00:08:34--> 00:08:36

raffle? Yeah, let me complete my answer. Sure.

00:08:39--> 00:08:58

by punishing you, He will not benefit but he's giving you a fear. Why? If you have alcohol, he will punish you. If you have drunk he will punish you. Whether you have drugs what difference does it make to him? know if he says okay, don't do drugs. But if you have drug I will not punish you. Then will you have

00:09:00--> 00:09:28

if I give an examination? I know I won't have if I if I'm convinced is wrong for me. I won't have that fear of the hell the fear of the Hellfire to be put in my mind to avert me God convinces people in different ways some people with reason and logic. You're a logical person you're convinced in logic some people want fear. Some people want punishment some people want reward. There are three four types of ways which are last piece. You get convinced with reason logic. You're like me.

00:09:30--> 00:09:59

You're like me? Yes. Some people are not convinced even logic. Rajiv logic. Ha, I'll get reward. I'll do it. I get punishment. I stay away. So in such care, reality is the fear. Is it reality? Yes, I'll tell you. I'll tell you, I'll tell you reality is that the Hellfire is there and the punishment is there. Let me complete the answer. Yeah, Will you allow me to complete them? So you will? Yes, please. Let me give you a chance. God, I'll give you a chance.

00:10:00--> 00:10:03

To say that you're convinced, but before I complete my answer your interjecting

00:10:05--> 00:10:13

after I complete I'll give you a chance and ask you now, there the teacher taking an examination, two plus three is almost four

00:10:14--> 00:10:53

convinced. Now, there are some people the teacher says okay, now in the examination, those who read correctly will get plus point will pass. Those who don't read correctly will fail. Now when the teacher is telling hundreds of things, it difficult for everyone to remember. But if they want to remember you write if you write correct I'll pass you if you write wrong I fail you. So now the student starts memorizing he starts like you Pastor engineering. You afraid of failing? If you wouldn't have to fail to say no problem even if you write wrong I will give you a degree will you study? No. Ah

00:10:55--> 00:11:11

you understand Boyle's law? You understand trigonometry, you understand chemistry, but to remember you have to stay awake. You have to slog teacher said no problem you understood. You right in the examination right or wrong. Two plus two, three, I will pass you will you study?

00:11:12--> 00:11:15

It depends. I won't but probably someone who is more sensitive.

00:11:18--> 00:11:42

If the teacher says no, your aim is to get the degree once you understand if you fail, if you fail, you won't get the degree so you're Almighty God speaks logically. Some people logical it doesn't make a difference whether Hellfire is or heaven is there. Other people you do get you get a reward. Like when you speak to your child sometimes you speak logically. Sometimes you say you know I'll give you a chocolate

00:11:43--> 00:11:56

sometimes a gala Hamartoma. Yeah, I will hear one slap so this is what God knows the psychology of the human being either creator sometime logic sometime reasoning, some time reward some time punishment, but once he says he has to follow he can't lie.

00:11:57--> 00:12:03

Once he says you have to follow so he's trying to convince you suppose your son

00:12:04--> 00:12:14

I know you're not married and you're not married? Insha Allah one day when you get married? And if your son Yes, and your son inshallah marry a muslim inshallah. Inshallah.

00:12:15--> 00:12:23

So your son married our son, five years old. He wants to jump from 10 floor to st my son don't jump up. I want to jump

00:12:25--> 00:13:01

you know, you will die no problem. I want to jump one slide we'll give him right or wrong. You will tell him I slap you yet if he wants to jump you slap him. Father is cruel to be kind is your intention to hurt him? No, your intention to hurt them literally so that you prevent from the bigger so you're if he says no, no, I'm only acting. Maybe first time we'll take I'll punish you and you don't punish him. But if you want to jump you will not wait till he jumps you will give him one day clap. The same God here. He tells you this is good. This is bad. This is reward This is punishment. And once he says something, he's honest.

00:13:03--> 00:13:50

In Islam, God is the most kind. He wants the human being to improve the other god. Okay, no problem even if you write wrong I'll pass you what kind of a teacher is this? Suppose tomorrow there is a student studying with you. He read wrong answers use frog. You stay awake in the night. This person plays hooky enjoys, right everything wrong. And the teacher says won't get first class was really happy the teacher know why. You're a very unkind person. Very cruel. And not a good human being. I am wrong. Because you believe in justice. So besides God being kind and merciful, he's also just imagine someone raped your sister rapes your mother, God said no problem. And forgive on the day of

00:13:50--> 00:13:51

they've been wounded or God.

00:13:52--> 00:13:56

That's okay. I'm talking about God being egoistic on his own

00:13:58--> 00:14:17

number he's saying if you may do *, then I will put you in hellfire forever and ever. I'm not saying that he should not punish wrong deeds, but he's putting on his own self. But if you associate it partners with me, along with worshiping Me, If You worship someone else, even then I will not forgive you. That's the right thing.

00:14:18--> 00:14:35

If the doctor says if suppose the heart specialist as your mother says, this is a good thing. have only this medicine, nothing else. Someone else says, Okay, have this medicine also. So that heart specialist tells you if you mix it with something is the mother will die. So will you listen to somebody else or not?

00:14:36--> 00:14:49

Will you listen or not? Are specialists saying don't have anything else except this arbitrate? Keep it below your tongue. Yes, another doctor come near. I'm a very good doctor. You don't know him also. Listen to heart passion.

00:14:51--> 00:14:59

Heart specialists specialize but God is a big art specialist. So heart specialists you want to follow you don't want to follow your creative spirit in your heart or mind.

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

Oh,

00:15:01--> 00:15:03

wait, wait, wait, let me complete

00:15:05--> 00:15:31

let me complete. Yes, yes for you being logical when you want to follow the heart question is when the hearts mission is telling you don't listen to anyone else because they are told you the total, that heart specialists can be wrong because the human being Almighty God, when He says, Do not worship anyone else besides me, he knows that if you think somebody else is also the greatest, and if you follow and follow something wrong, it will harm you.

00:15:33--> 00:16:01

God does not want to see to it that his creations Uh hum. He is going out of the way to give you an ultimate money. Other things, maybe I will forgive. That is one type of murder is one type of sin very wrong. secondlargest. But one, if you worship somebody else, you can do anything. You can start murdering, you can start diving drugs, you can start ripping to dangerous. This is a guidance, it is complete.

00:16:02--> 00:16:44

Because he's the creator, He knows no one else is the creator, not someone else tries to behave like a creator. When God knows no one else can create you. It is very dangerous that there is any faith that following advise worshipping anyone obeying anyone as the creator, not obeying normally, normally won't obey a father, no problem will be your mother no problem going against the commandments of Almighty God worshiping God, I'm trying to find out is that the right God who is saying that if you associated partners with me, I will never forgive this in you are taking it's a catch 22 I am questioning whether a God who thinks like that is that the correct God? You are saying

00:16:44--> 00:17:26

you are saying he is the correct God and He knows why I have checked up the science. This Quran passes the test when I put science to into Scripture that fails when I put science to Bible it fails. So even if I agree with you with my earlier question, maybe this is ambiguous sign it the person is proved to be 100% Correct. 20 person is ambiguous. Inshallah logically even this will be right, if I have to put that way. But the other way for doctor to solve that argument would be 100% of it is proved that it is correct. If 20% ambiguous is tell you one thing, brother, your mind hasn't reached that level. My mind hasn't reached that level. The science hasn't reached that level,

00:17:26--> 00:18:09

maybe 100 years after 1000 years after the group improved and the person correct. We are limited. The problem within you and me not in the Quran. Similarly, but a person who's very powerful. A person who's a heart specialist, he knows this stuff very well. He'll be sure do this nothing is a person who not sure Oh, get this medicine also have that medicine also. So person who's cocksure of himself, like the great Almighty God, he will give this commandment now he's cocksure. You are not quite sure about Him that He is the Creator. Once you're sure you will follow. I'm quite sure that this is a word of Almighty God. You aren't? Yes. So once the research gets complete, you know very

00:18:09--> 00:18:20

well that the other scriptures don't pass the test. Yes, I challenge you to get any scripture that you know of whichever close to the Quran. This is the strongest scripture that did that question. So when you know

00:18:22--> 00:18:31

I can't ask you to accept because you know, we spoke yesterday. Whatever, you know, it is the thing. Then the ego is in you. Not an almighty God, the ego

00:18:34--> 00:18:59

all the ones I have, this is the strongest. I pray to Almighty God. You know, because I love you. Yes, I love you too. I love you that Verizon I pray to Almighty God to give you that you don't have to proclaim. You asked me yesterday you have to proclaim as I know you have to proclaim. So I think that you are a person who submitted will to God and may God guide you and make you get a good submitting Muslim life partner. Thank you. Thank you
