I've been interested to present the brief translation of these few Ayah This is our from Surah Al fudges and it explains about the shared problem of humanity when a law
favors a human being by making him well off and rich.
Then human beings become proud of themselves, saying, I'm a person of honor. And when Allah subhanho wa Taala puts human being through a trial of limited livelihood
Then human being becomes very pessimistic. And he says that Allah has made me live in a derogatory situation. But colourable Allah tala is saying, There is no need to be proud or need to be put down yourself,
but we should work to criminally a team, we all human beings, Muslims and non Muslims should honor and dignify the orphans, and we should encourage each other for charitable work to feed the poor and should not try to eat up the common and shared and moral, bequest wealth in an Islamic manner in a legitimate manner. So, the solution to all the differences in human being is to look after your team to feed the poor and do the charitable and good deed in our life. And by this way, inshallah, we are going to make impact in this society where the majority people are non Muslims and Islam and Muslims will earn a good name inshallah. Allah

Bismillah Rahmani Raheem? madona Salli ala rasulillah Kareem, our distinguished scholar of this evening Dr. Zakir Naik,
brother Bashir and brother Shaheed, the Management Committee members of the Islamic Northland Association and the Harris central mosque
distinguished scholars brothers and sisters assalamu aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato.
It is indeed, my privilege to introduce our chief guest this evening, a person who perhaps requires no introduction whatsoever.
But however, the introduction is needed
to remind ourselves
of the wonderful work in terms of Dawa that has been carried out the much needed bow work in today's times, that is carried out by this personality, which is beamed over around the world daily, for sometimes two hours to up to four hours every single day by major national television stations,
and many other smaller channels, trying to get the message, the central message as to who we are, what is the Dean of Islam, and its role in the society at large. Dr. Naik. Alhamdulillah is a medical doctor by profession.
But it is now more than 14 years that he felt
that he had served to treat the body the human body. But perhaps it was now time to treat the soul.
And in that aspect, the work that has been carried out is more of a full time work.
He's established a renowned Research Institute in Bombay,
which employs more than 200 people with different scholars being trained to give lectures in different parts of the world. It is that much needed work
that makes us feel comfortable. That in all the challenges that we are facing, not just in the UK, in the Muslim walls, but the world over.
And it is such renowned speakers that can bring the message of understanding messenger of mutual understanding respect, tolerance, and to give the true image of Islam, which sadly, is being confused and manipulated by those who do not wish to see Islam grow and progress in this modern world. Therefore, with this few words, I'm delighted to introduce a respected scholar. But before he comes in, may I take the opportunity to thank the organizers of both institutions, the Northland Islamic Association and the Herald central mosque, for organizing this wonderful event within such a short period of time. And it shows the interest within the Muslim community to hear from such
distinguished scholars, the message that they want to convey to us so that we in our daily lives, can try and bring that message to show the world at large, who we are and what are the teachings of Islam. May Allah guide us through these difficult times that we are moving through, and we hope and pray we'll have more such opportunities in our daily lives to hear from our distinguished scholar Dr. Zakir Naik struggling

May peace, mercy and blessings of Allah subhana wa Taala of Almighty God beyond all of you
the topic of this evening stalkers,
the role of the Muslims in a non Muslim society.
First of all understand what is the meaning of the word Muslim. Muslim means a person who follows Islam.
Islam comes from the root word, salam, which means peace. It is also derived from the Arabic word sin, which means to submit your will to Allah subhana wa Taala. to Almighty God. In short, Islam means peace acquired by submitting your will to Allah subhana wa Taala to Almighty God and anyone
who submits his will, to Almighty God and acquires peace is called as a Muslim. So, in short, Muslim is a person who acquires peace by submitting his will to Allah subhana wa Taala to Almighty God. As far as the role of the Muslims in a non Muslim society is concerned, it can be divided broadly into two categories.
The first is
the actions and deeds related to himself
and the other, his actions and deeds related to the non Muslim as far as the first category is concerned, that is the actions and deeds of a Muslim related to himself.
It is the same irrespective whether that Muslim lives in a Muslim society or a non Muslim society
the actions and the deeds are the same.
There are certain concessions given in certain situations, but it does not differ, whether the Muslim is living in a Muslim society or the non Muslim society, it is the same.
For example, what is further
what is complicity for a Muslim in a Muslim society is also further is also compulsory for a Muslim in a non Muslim society.
has to believe and worship only one Almighty God. Allah subhanho wa Taala
irrespective whether you're living in a Muslim society or a non Muslim society, he should believe in tawheed he should worship only one Allah subhanaw taala
a Muslim has to pray five times a day minimum
in a Muslim society, the same has to be done by that Muslim, even if he lives in a non Muslim society.
Fine, they may be different situation
in a Muslim society, they may be a mosque in every area, they may be a mosque in every second Street, which may not be the case in a non Muslim society. But yet, if a Muslim is living a non Muslim society, he has to offer five times Salah it is complicity it is forbidden.
If the mosque is not close by, or he has to travel long and he cannot do that, he has to offer Salah maybe in his office or at home, but Salah is foreign, he has no excuse to miss it. A Muslim irrespective whether he is living in a Muslim or non Muslim society he has to give zakat.
If he's entitled to give, if he has a saving of more than the nisab level, more than 85 grams of gold, he or she should give 2.5% of that excess wealth of that saving every lunar year in charity.
A Muslim cannot say that he's living in a non Muslim society and the standard of living is high or the place where he's living. It is expensive. Therefore he will not give zakat. If he has a savings of more than the nisab level 85 grams of gold he or she should give Zakat every year
a Muslim irrespective of the living in a Muslim or non Muslim society. He has
Too fast in the month of Ramadan.
If the days are short in winter, maybe the timings will be less. If it's summer when the days are long, the timing of the fast would be longer, but he has to fast complicity, he has no excuse. If you live in non Western society, he has no excuse he has to fast. Similarly, a Muslim,
if he has the means to perform hajj, if he's an adult, he should at least perform Hajj once in his lifetime.
If he has the means health and money, he has to offer height. There's no excuse. Even if you live in a non Muslim society.
He may be living far away from Saudi Arabia from Makkah.
But if he has the means to travel that distance, he has to offer Hajj at least once in his lifetime, it is far in this way, all the fries, all the actions and deeds which are compulsory for a Muslim in a Muslim society is also complicity in a non Muslim society.
A Muslim woman
she has to do a job. Irrespective whether she's living in a Muslim or non Muslim society, she has no excuse that she's living in non Muslim society that reason she will not do her job, there is no excuse. So far, it has to be done.
In this way, all the other funds being honest,
speaking the truth, it is the same, it does not differ.
Similarly, what is haram for a Muslim
in a Muslim society is also haram for a Muslim in a non Muslim society. Whichever part of the world he lives in. Check is haram.
He is living in a Muslim society. It's also Haram. If he's living in a non Muslim society, there is no excuse that because he's staying in a non Muslim society or a western country. He can do shall
it's haram throughout the world.
fornication and adultery
it is haram for a Muslim irrespective whether he's living in a Muslim or non Muslim society, irrespective which part of the world he lives in
Boko Haram, whether he lives in a Muslim country or non Muslim country,
having non xebia food, non halal food,
which is not sorted by the Islamic method,
or which Quran does not information do it is haram irrespective of the living in a Muslim on society. In short, whatever is further and whatever is haram, for a Muslim, it is the same throughout the world. Irrespective whether you're living in a Muslim or a non Muslim society, there are many Muslims who give excuse that because I'm living in a western country or because I'm living in non Muslim society. Some things are excused, what is first
what is haram is haram.
As far as the other aspects are concerned,
regarding mazahub, things, which are encouraged
those which are considered as Sana Musab sin which is encouraged, it is the same also. But
there may be a little bit leniency. For example, covering the head, for a Muslim man,
or wearing a cap is Muslim, it is the son of the Prophet.
But if you feel that we're living in a non Muslim society,
and you feel that wearing a cap,
endanger your life, and if you want to avoid that act, you can do it because wearing a cap is not furthering Islam. If you do it, you will get plus points. If you don't do it, you have no loss, but you will not get the plus points.
So, living a non Muslim society, the thing is just muster hub, if you fear regarding certain aspects and you avoid it,
you will not get the plus points. Similarly, things which are mcru
thing which are discouraged
are the same for the world. But they can be a little bit leniency.
going for the call of nature
and doing the call of nature, it is Nakuru
but if you know living in a western country and the toilets may not permit you and if you do it, there is no problem but you will lose the plus points. You don't get negative points. So as far as the fourth and the harems are concerned, there is no excuse at all, as far as the other aspects are concerned about the Sunnah and the mcru
If you want to avoid it for certain reason, you can do it you will not get negative points, but you will lose the positive points.
This was in short regarding the first category
of a behavior of a Muslim in a non Muslim society.
As far as the second category is concerned,
of a Muslim in a non Muslim society as far as relationships with a non Muslim is concerned as far as actions and deeds with a non Muslim is concerned, it can be further divided into three sub categories.
The first is
gender is dealing with the non Muslim.
The second is special relationships with the non Muslims and the third is Dawa.
With the non Muslims, as far as the first subcategory is concerned regarding the genders dealings of a Muslim
with the non Muslims, it is the same.
You have to be honest with the non Muslim, you have to be kind to him, you have to be just with him, you have to be merciful.
As far as the general dealing is concerned, in day to day life, which does not directly concern
harming a man, then how you deal with a Muslim, you have to deal the same way with a non Muslim in general, day to day dealings. And there are many Muslims who say, Ah,
he's a non Muslim, you know, so if I cheat him, it's not a problem.
Islam does not give you permission to cheat anyone, whether they're Muslim or non Muslim. Islam does not give you permission to deal unjustly, whether the Muslim or non Muslim is the same.
this can be derived from to verse of the Glorious Quran from Surah moonta Hina, chapter number 16, verses eight and nine. And Allah subhanaw taala says in the Quran, in Surah Medina, chapter in verse 16, verse number eight, that Allah forbids you not
as far as those non Muslims are concerned, who fight you, not for your faith,
nor drive you out of your homes, from dealing with them with justice and kindness for Allah subhanho wa Taala loves those who are just unkind.
So you are last month that tells us that as far as the non Muslims are concerned, as long as they do not fight you for your faith
for a man or do not drive you out of your home.
Allah forbids you not from dealing with them with justice and kindness for Allah loves those who are just unkind. But the next verse of the Quran Allah says in Surah Medina, Chapter 16, verse number nine, but Allah forbid view only as far as those non Muslims are concerned, who fight for your faith
and drive you out of your homes or support those people who indulge in these activities. Allah forbids you
from keeping friendship and asking for protection from these people.
So if a non Muslim fights for your faith,
are derived out of your home, a support those people
who fight you, for your faith are diverted the homes Allah forbids you
from going to them for friendship, or for protection. So your last month is very clear that under normal circumstances, with a non Muslim, you have to religiously and kindly unless he fights for your faith or dives out of your home.
And there's a verse in the Quran,
which many of the Muslims, they misunderstand. Allah says in the Quran in Surah Nisa, chapter number four was the 144 where Allah says, Yeah, I was in Amarillo, all you who believe.
Take not for Alia,
the unbelievers in preference to the believers. And many of the translations, they translate the Arabic word Alia as friends. So the translation reads that all you who believe do not take for friends, unbelievers in preference to believers, which I feel it's wrong translation. The correct translation is the word Alia should be translated as someone who's a protector.
So the right translation is that Yeah, you will is in a minute or you believe do not take for protectors.
unbelievers in preference to believers do not take for predictors non Muslims in preference to Muslims. And the same message is repeated in sort of either chapter number five was number 57 and 58.
That all you believe,
do not take for friends and protectors, those who make a mockery of religion or take it as a sport. That means all those non Muslims who take your deen as a mockery or as a sport, do not keep friendship with them, no go to them for protection. These verses of the Quran are very clear.
But otherwise, keeping acquaintanceship with a non Muslim,
keeping normal friendship with a non Muslim is no problem at all.
Under normal circumstances,
we should treat the non Muslims with justice and kindness. In fact, I say we should go a step further so that they are impressed with our religion. They're impressed with our Deen and you can find several examples in the life history of the Prophet masala salam, several, you can give a talk only on giving examples how the Prophet dealt with the non Muslims.
And many of us are aware
of the incidence when a non Muslim
enters the mosque of the Prophet.
And he needs the Sahaba irritated.
They want to teach the non Muslim a lesson but the Prophet he stops them. And he says Be come get some water and wash the floor. That's it.
We know the famous incidents.
Whenever prophet masala Salah Mr. Worf there was a non Muslim lady who's to throw dirt on the Prophet every day. Whenever we have to walk the non Muslim lady to throw dirt.
One day when the Prophet walks below the house of the non Muslim lady, no dirt falls on him. So he's surprised.
He goes to a house to find out why was no dirt thrown today.
And he realizes that she was sick. And he prays for Russia.
And that non Muslim lady, she's so impressed with the profit that she accepts Islam.
We are the example in the seed of the Prophet masala Salaam, that there was a Jew by the animal said
the Prophet had borrowed some money from him. But before the time was due that June, it comes to the prophet and it demands for the money back. And he's rude.
He speaks rudely to the Prophet that give my money back. And the time was not yet up. Hello, tomorrow when he gets angry, and he says, Oh enemy of God. Had it not been for the treaty between the Muslim the Jews are chopped off your head for speaking to the prophet like that.
Hello Tamara de la and we know that he was a man of justice. He gets irritated How could someone speak to the Prophet of Allah like that? The Prophet immediately intervenes. And he says hello tomorrow, the one that become
interessato tomorrow the 11 that gives this Jew his money back and add to it the amount of 20 gallons because you frightened him
because tomorrow 11 fighting him. The man did not have the right to us the money because the time wasn't yet.
The time wasn't due yet because tomorrow's 11 he frightened that non Muslim, the prophet said besides giving the money back to him add 20 gallons worth
because he had fight in the Jew
and hamdulillah the Jews impressed with the bravery of the Prophet and accepts Islam.
So generally, the Muslims should be kind and just to the non Muslims, we have to be the right example. So that they realize we are the followers of the religion of peace. A Muslim is a person who acquires peace by submitting a visual Asana with Allah.
So, as far as gender dealing is concerned, we have to be kind and just but
there is a caution, which always mentioned in my talk,
whenever I'm dealing with this topic,
that keeping non Muslim friends is no problem as long as you are having an influence on that non Muslim.
If it is the vice versa, then there is a danger if the non Muslim friend is having a greater influence on you
Then there is a problem.
Because whenever there is a relationship between two human beings
and when you keep on meeting very often
no one can tell me that nothing happens. Either you're influencing him, or he's influencing you. You can't say that nothing is happening. So if you're having influence on him
Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah continue the relationship
so that he understands that there is no for some better, but if he's having influence on you, then be careful. You may follow his path, which may be wrong.
So you're if it's a relationship
in which your deen is in danger, then
I feel you have to discontinue that relationship. You have to be careful. The Quran is very clear as far as production is concerned. If there are two options believer and unbeliever, a believer is preferable at all times. The worst says do not take unbelievers for protectors in preference to believers.
So as far as your deen is not in danger, and if you're having an influence on the non Muslim Alhamdulillah and I
by the grace of Allah subhanaw taala I have hundreds of non Muslim friends. Mashallah, hundreds, Hindus, Christians, many
almost all that I know.
They respect me Mashallah. They know that I'm a die. I speak about the religion
they respect me. So as long as you are having influence on them, it's very good.
In terms of special relationship, where your deal is in danger, I like to give an example. Allah says in the Quran, in Surah Baqarah chapter number two was number 221. That the believing man
a Muslim, should not marry America and idolatrous and under unbelieving woman, unless she believes
a believing woman who's a slave woman is better than unbelieving woman, even if she allows you. That means a Muslim man cannot marry a non Muslim woman.
A woman who the idol worship would shake unless she believes unless she becomes a Muslim unless she becomes a moment.
a Muslim man, a woman, a believed woman is far better than unbelieving woman, even if she allows you means in preference.
To marry a Muslim woman, even if she may be a slave woman. She may be a blonde woman. She may be a very poor woman, she may be an ugly woman. If she has faith, she's far superior than an unbelieving woman. Even if she allows you She may be the most beautiful woman in the world. She may be the richest woman in the world, yet a Muslim man, a believing woman who's poor and ugly, as far superior than unbelieving woman. And the same goes
vice versa, that a believing woman should not marry an unbelieving man, a mushrik man until he believes a believing man. Even if he's a slave man, he's far superior to a man who does.
Even he may allow you, he may be the most handsome man in the world. He may be the richest man in the world. He may be the king of the country. But a believing man, even if he's poor, even if he's ugly, is far better in marriage than
a mystic man. So you're because the relationship is concerned that if you marry a non Muslim, if you marry America, or a missionary, your deen is in danger.
That's the reason it is prohibited for a Muslim to marry a non Muslim,
marry a Muslim.
Otherwise, under normal circumstances, in general dealing you have to be kind to the non Muslim.
We come to the third subcategory
of the role of a Muslim or non Muslim society that is dealing with non Muslims. And that third subcategory is our
What is the meaning of the Arabic word Dawa?
Those who come from the Indian subcontinent.
They know the meaning of the word Davos.
The moment you hear the word Davos, you start thinking of biani or plough.
Tao via data does not mean biryani opala.
dava means to call to invite
and an invitation can only be given to an outsider. So dava specifically means inviting a non Muslim towards Islam.
When you speak about Islam to a Muslim, the more appropriate word is Islam, which means to repair which means to improve. But when we speak about Islam to non Muslim inviting him towards Islam, the more appropriate word is tava. Though this word dava is used synonymously both by speaking to Muslim as well as non Muslims. But specifically Dawa means inviting the non Muslims towards Islam.
And this Dawa is a fourth and every Muslim, especially those Muslims who are living in a non Muslim society.
I started my talk by quoting a verse from the Quran from Surah Allah Moran chapter number three was 110. Well, last month, Allah says kuntum Cara multinucleate Atlanta's only Muslims, he are the best of people who are for mankind.
Allah has given us an honor and calling us among the best of people.
Whenever there is honor, it is always followed up with the responsibility. There is no honor without responsibility.
in a school, the principal has got more honor than a teacher.
A teacher has got more honor than a clerk.
But simultaneously, the principal has got more responsibility than a teacher. A teacher has got more responsibility than a clerk. There is no honor without responsibility. Allah has given us an honor in the Quran as calling us the Hydra among Muslims. He had the best of peoples of all for mankind. Don't you think we have a responsibility? The reply is given in the same words Allah continues and says that morona bill Moreover the noun animal care, but we know Nabila because we enjoy what is good, and we forbid what is wrong, and we believe in Allah. If we do not enjoy what is good, and if we do not forbid what is wrong, we aren't fit to be called as oma we are unfit to be called as
Muslims, it is compulsory for every Muslim that he invites
the non Muslims he invites them towards the good and forbidding them from doing wrong and believe in Allah.
Allah says in the Quran, in Surah, Mohamad
chapter number 47.
that if you do not do your job, if you do not follow the responsible, they are less giving you. Allah says,
Allah, just double common gherkin, Allah will substitute in a place and other people some malarkey and they will not be like you, if you do not do your job, if you do not follow the commandments of Allah subhanho wa Taala. Allah will substitute in your place and other people and they will not be like you.
Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was the 143 that we have made you and Matt have asked a middlemost community so that you may be a witness ordinations, as the prophet will be a witness for you. It is the duty of every Muslim to convey the message of Islam to the non Muslims.
I'd like to ask you a question.
Suppose you go away from your home,
house for work
and your neighbor.
He abuses your mother. He uses foul language against your mother.
When you come back home, and when you come to know that your neighbor has used foul language against your mother, what will you do?
What will you do when you get back home? And you come to know that your neighbor has used foul language against a mother for no reason at all? And when you get back home and when you come to know about this, what will you do?
What will you do?
What do you do?
Beat him up?
What do you do?
What do you do?
one by the saying beat him up other brothers saying Bash him third persons and kill him.
When you get back home, and you've come to know that your neighbor has abused use foul language against your mother for no rhyme or reason. Someone wants to beat him up. Someone wants to bash him someone wants to kill him. But you see to it that your neighbor has taught a lesson. Will you or not?
Yes or no? Of course, if you cannot do it yourself, you will hire someone else to do the job. Yes or no
because we love our mother.
fine, we'll see to it that we will teach that neighbor a lesson
on to ask a question that's in this world. Who do you love the most? Number one?
Who do you love the most?
Allah, we love Allah subhana wa Taala more than our mother, more than our father more than our wife more than our children. We love him. Number one, you ask any Muslim and the reply would be the same that the person you love the most is Allah.
Allah says in the Quran
in surah, Maryam
chapter 19, verse number 88, to 92, Allah says wirkkala emanuella that they say,
the non Muslims, the Jews and the Christians, that Allah subhana wa Taala has gotten a son. Look at the Gita mushiya da indeed Deaf put forth a thing which is most monstrous, that are the Sahaba fatahna minoo as though the skies are ready to burst what unshackled the earth to fit asunder what the carriage bajada and the mountains to fall down to utter ruin. Allah says in the Quran, if anyone says that Allah has forgotten the sun, if the sky had feelings, the sky would have burst open. If the earth had feelings, the Earth would have split open, the mountains would have fallen down to utter ruin. If anyone says that Allah has forgotten the sun, because anyone who says that unless
because the sun, it is one of the most insidious things you can say about Allah subhanho wa Taala we see today, especially in the non Muslim society, everyday,
or non Muslim friends, or non Muslim colleagues, they are abusing Allah subhanaw taala they are saying Allah has forgotten the sun, and we can't even open our mouth.
When we ask a Muslim, who do you love the most the replies Allah.
When someone wants to abuse our mother, you will foul language against a mother. You want to beat him up. You want to bash him, you want to kill him. And every day people are abusing Allah subhanho wa Taala and you can't even open your mouth. I'm not telling that you go and Bash him.
I'm not telling go and beat him. I'm not saying go and kill him. It's not allowed in Islam.
You can kill
a non Muslim because abusing Allah subhanaw taala
isn't allowed for that. At least open your mouth.
When someone is abusing your mother, you want to beat him you want to bash him every day. Our non Muslim friends or non Muslim colleagues.
They are abusing Allah subhanho wa Taala and we can even open amount leave aside opening amount we go and become party to them
very soon after a couple of weeks is going to be Christmas season.
And many of us Muslims, we wish our Christian friends, Merry Christmas. Leave us at correcting them. You are becoming partied with them. You know the Christians, they celebrate Christmas and they say that Jesus Christ peace be upon him is the Son of God and God be God Jesus Christ, please binos Billa on 25th of December, leave aside correcting them. You're congratulating them you are giving Shahada that Allah subhanho wa Taala knows Billa has been gotten a son on the 25th of December
diva side correcting them you are giving Shahada Merry Christmas means what?
Your congratulating you and giving witness that knows Bella. Allah has gotten a son on the 25th of December.
We have to open them out.
I'm not saying go and beat them or bash them. It does open your mouth.
Can you open your mouth?
non Muslim society whether the Christian society or Hindu society.
Same thing there. The festival was very common from where I come that is Ganesha tutti Ganpati
and many Muslims go to this festival and when they offer the prasada
the food which is put in front of the idol.
The Muslim is no it is haram. But how can they offend their friend he'll feel bad. So what they do, they say Bismillah and habit.
So tomorrow they say Bismillah and have poked. They after tomorrow they say Bismillah and alcohol. What's happened to the Muslim ummah. We can't even open our mouth. Who are we afraid of?
It is so easy.
Believe me to talk is so easy. The only thing you have proper amount.
You don't have to insult him. You don't have to abuse him. Quran clearly says in Surah Nam chapter number six
was 108, revile, not close, abused, not those Gods worship besides Allah left in the ignorance, they will abuse Allah subhanho wa Taala they will provide Allah subhanaw taala. So you do not have to use foul language against them. Only thing you have to ask them simple questions. It's so easy.
But we Muslims, we are afraid to open our mouth. We are Phaedra Tao because if I open my mouth, I will lose this friendship. We are more interested in keeping friends with a non Muslim than the friendship with Allah subhanho wa Taala.
And believe me, if you really speak about how they will respect you
the experience that I have in my life, being a medical college, I never had problems. In fact, when I studied in Bombay, the percentage of Muslim was very few, five 6%. When asked to speak with a non Muslims, or Muslims, I run away pet buying and now he's going to give the bashing so they've run away.
But I never had a problem. No non Muslim has yet caught my collar.
When you speak the truth, they respect you. And
when I was in medical college, it's compulsory we have to pass in VIVUS in Bible, and 50% of our marks and all the subject for waiver. And as to dava even with my professors,
many people said that,
if you do too much, they will fail you. So I said no problem Allah if he wants, that I should have
But hamdulillah What should we be afraid of?
We should open a mouth but unfortunately, we Muslims. We are afraid. We are more interested in keeping the friendship of our non Muslim friends rather than friendship of Allah subhanho wa Taala.
Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was the 121 tada angelia who do well and NASA hataoka w Milla to the Jews and the Christians, they will never be satisfied until you follow their brand of religion until you follow their way of life.
Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was the 111 wirkkala gender Allah man karna houden en la sala de se the Jews and Christians, you Muslims, you shall never enter Jannah unless you become a Jew or a Christian, with all your piety, with all your Salah with the mark on your forehead with the first thing you do in the month of Ramadan, with hijab perform, you shall never enter Jannah unless you become a Jew or a Christian. Allah says they will karmani you whom this is the wishful thinking back was a backwash to tell them how to produce a proof and condoms are the key. But if you're truthful, Allah says, If anyone makes tall claims, tell them how to produce
your proof and condom for the king. But if you're truthful, and the Christians, they have produced a Bible, in no less than 2000 different languages. They say my Bible says this, my Bible says that my Bible says this, my Bible says that, what do we have to do? Do we have to follow the Bible hook, line and sinker?
When anyone shows you his identity card? What do you do? you verify whether that card is correct or not. So when they are telling you, the Bible is the Word of God, what do we have to do?
We have to analyze the scriptures. How many of us Muslims are analyzing the scriptures? How many of us
leave aside v. doing our to them with their scriptures, these Christian missionaries, they are using our Quran, our current against us.
The Christian missionaries, they come knocking at our door
and ask us a question. They come knocking at the doors of Muslims and ask you the question that isn't it mentioned in the Quran? That Bible is the Word of God? And most of us will say yes. Then the next question is, then why don't you follow the Bible?
And we are going to reply.
That's the next question.
That how many times is the name of your last and final messenger? Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him mentioned the Quran.
If you know you will say five times four times as Mohammed and one says Mr. Salah Salah. How many times is the name of Jesus Christ peace be upon him mentioned in the Quran. If you don't know they will tell you Jesus Christ peace be upon him by name is mentioned 25 times in the Quran
there's no question Who's greater a person who's mentioned five times by name in the Quran is greater or a person who's mentioned 25 times by name in the Quran is greater
than the question but they're not give you the reply to let your mind think
Doesn't this question
the Prophet mama Salah Salaam.
Did you have a father and mother we say, yes, he had a father and mother, Did Jesus Christ peace be upon him? Did he have a father and mother we have to agree that are for the digital the Quran is Allah Salaam, Jesus Christ peace be upon him had a mother, but he had no father.
That's the next question Who's greater? A person who has a father's Gita or a person who does not have a father as a person who is born
by the help of the father's Gita, or a person who is born without a father is greater?
A person who has a father's get or a person who does not have a father, who's better?
They ask the question, but they don't give you the reply. They let their mind think
they are using as Muslims as punching bags as doormats. They're making nest in our head, and we can't even open a mount. It's a shame.
Did your prophet mama Salah Salaam do any miracles? We say yes, we did several miracles. Do you know of any miracle in which he gave life to the dead? And we have to agree that nowhere does the Quran or the Hadith say that Mombasa lasagna left the dead? That's the next question. Did Jesus Christ peace be upon him? Did he give life to the dead? And we have to agree the Quran says Bismillah wake up in the name of Allah. Yes, he gave life to the dead. So who's a person who can give life to the right is greater or a person who cannot give life to the indicator? Who's greater?
A person who can give that to the right is greater, or a person who cannot give life to the right is greater. Who's greater?
The question is who's greater?
When you say who's good in English, it has to be one of the two. Unless English is weak.
They ask the question, but they don't give you the reply. The letter mind think does the next question that your Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him? Is he physically dead or alive? And we have to agree physically mama Salah Salem dead, his bed in Medina. If Allah salam, Jesus Christ peace be upon him, is he physically dead or alive?
We have to agree that is a life. The Quran says in Surah Nisa, chapter four was 158 that Allah subhana wa Taala has raised him up alive. So who's greater?
A prophet who's dead is greater or a profit of the life is greater?
That's the question, but don't give you the reply. The letter mind thing they use as Muslims as punching bags as doormats, and we can't even open our mouth.
See doing Dawa is very easy if you read the Quran
and if you keep your mind open, doing Dawa is very easy.
Allah says in the Quran in Surah Al Imran Chapter number three was the most 64 good
SEO people of the book that Allah Allah Sawa in Burnaby nickel come to come in terms asked us and you which is the first term Allah Illallah that you worship man but Allah will unleash Jacob Isha yo that we associate the partners with him well if he's about to Nevada and urban Manila that we elect not among ourselves, lords and patrons other than Allah, tala then they turn back pakula shadow see be witness banda masamune that we are Muslims by being able to Allah subhanaw taala This was of the Glorious Quran Surah Al Imran Chapter number three was number 64 according to me is the master key.
As far as TAO to non Muslim is concerned is the master key for da vide says tallow electril mitten Sawa in Burnaby come to common terms as the US and EU, which is the first term align up with a law that we worship men but Allah will unleash macabeo that we associate to partners with him.
And if you see the tapes and the lectures that I've given,
all these questions have been answered.
How to dava has been explained.
It's so easy The only thing I have to do is open your mouth. The non Muslim society can be divided into further three categories. One of the category who is religious
that are in the non society and the Western society that are
since majority of Christians. There is a small percentage who are religious.
They're Christians and they follow the script to the Bible.
In other societies like in India, where majority of Hindus there is a small portion, a small percentage of Hindus who are religious who follow the scriptures.
The best way to Dawa with these people is tala will actually within Sabah in benavente. Come to common terms as being essential, which is the first term as Ananda Illallah that you're worshipping but Allah, we have to speak from the scriptures trying to prove about one Allah subhana wa Taala The best thing about dava the most important aspect is proving about oneness of Allah subhanho wa Taala all the other aspects are secondary.
If you cannot convince a non Muslim about talking about monotheism, it is useless. You may speak to him about other aspects of Islam, but if he had continued to ensure
it will never be forgiven. Shrek is the biggest sin in Islam, which Allah will never forgive, unless he repented before that.
And this way, how to do Dawa, based on the verse of the Quran, I've dealt in various of my talks, similarities between Islam and Christianity similarities between Islam and Hinduism and how to Dawa.
For example, living in the western country, where the majority claimed to be Christians, though a small percentage are religious
in bridging the gaps with the Christians, I've given a talk on similarities between Islam and Christianity.
But I mentioned there that Islam is the only non Christian faith which makes it an article of faith to believe in Jesus Christ peace be upon him, we believe that he was one of the mightiest messengers of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We believe that he was the Messiah translated Christ, we believe that he was born miraculously without any male intervention, which many modern decreases who did not believe. We believe that he gave life to the dead with God's permission, we believe that he healed those born blind lepers with God's permission, the Christian and the Muslims, we are going together. But when we ask,
then where is the parting of ways? The Parting of ways is.
There are many Christians who say that Jesus Christ peace be upon him, he claimed divinity.
He said that he was Almighty God. In fact, if you read the Bible, there is not a single unequivocal statement. In the complete Bible. There is not a single unambiguous statement in the complete Bible, where Jesus Christ peace be upon him himself says that I am God already says worship me.
I am a student of Islam and compiled religion and heard the Bible. There is not a single unequivocal statement, not a single unambiguous statement. And the complete Bible where Jesus Christ peace be upon himself says that I am God always worship. In fact, if you read the Bible, Jesus Christ peace be upon himself said, it's mentioned the gospel of john, chapter number 14, verse number 28, Jesus Christ peace be upon himself said that my father is greater than I, gospel of john, chapter number 10, was number 29. My father is greater than all Gospel of Matthew chapter number 12, was number 28. I cast out devils with the Spirit of God, Gospel of Luke chapter 11, was number 20. I with the
finger of God cast out devils gospel of john, chapter number five was number 30, I can have my own self do nothing.
As I hear,
I judge and my judgment is just for I seek not my will, but the will of my Father, anyone who says I seek not my will, but the will of Almighty God. He's a Muslim, Jesus Christ, people in the Muslim and slowly mentioned the book of Acts, chapter number two, verse number 22, that a man of Israel, listen to this, Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God amongst you, by wonders and miracles, which God did by him and your witness to it. A man approved of God amongst you buy wonders and signs and miracles which God did by him and your witness to it.
So if you read the scriptures, we can prove from the scripture that Jesus Christ peace be upon him, he never claimed divinity. He was the messenger for Mighty God, we can prove from the Bible
about the coming about the Advent about the prophecy of the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad, Salah Salim you can give a talk on that.
It's mentioned the Old Testament in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter 18, verse number 18, in the book of Isaiah, chapter number 29, verse number 12, and the Song of Solomon chapter number five, verse number 16. In the New Testament in the Gospel of john chapter number 14, verse number 16, in the Gospel of john chapter number 15, verse number 26, in the Gospel of john chapter 16, verse number seven, and the gospel of john chapter 16, verse number 12.
You can only go on giving references from the Bible
where the professor homosassa with mentioned,
time doesn't permit us to talk about these aspects, you can refer to my video cassette, on similarities between Islam and Christianity or masala Salaam in the Bible. Similarly, if you're living a non Muslim society, where you have Hindus,
you can come to come in terms as far as their scriptures concerned, and our scriptures concern
for me, but this is the same
thing with Jews. It's the same technique. So this is, as far as one category of non Muslim is concerned, those who are religious.
In today's world, especially the Western world,
do people claim
to be Christians, very few actually practicing Christians.
They're more impressed
with science and technology. And most of them, practically the atheist, they do not believe in God.
So how would you dava to them?
If I meet an atheist, and if he tells me that there is no God, the first thing I'll do is I will congratulate him.
You will wonder why is Zakaria congratulating atheists The reason I will congratulate atheist is because most of the non Muslims they are non Muslims, because of the parents.
Most of the human beings, they follow the parents blindly. He's a Christian, with a father as a Christian, Hindu, with a father, the Hindu, many Muslims are Muslim because the father a Muslim, this atheist is thinking
his parents maybe will just but he's thinking he doesn't agree
in the gods with the parents worship.
So he says there is no God. And the reason I congratulate atheist is because he has said the first part of the Islamic Shahada La Ilaha there is no God. So half my job is done.
The only thing I have to do is in Lala which I shall do inshallah,
see the atheist, as I told you Suliman on chapter three verse 64, is the master key for dava tala Villa calm within Saba embedded avena calm come to comment terms as we ascend you. There are many Muslims have asked me that what is the commonality between the atheist and the Muslim? I said the first part of the Islamic Sharia law law, there is no God
because half my job is done to another non Muslim who believes in a God first has to prove to him that the God is worshipping is wrong.
And then I have to talk to him about Allah subhanaw taala Yeah, half my job is done. He has already said Lyla, there is no God, only they have to do in the law, which I shall do inshallah. Now, most of these atheists, as I told you, they have become atheists because they believe in science and technology, which they feel is so advanced and they become atheist. And after Gong lighted him, I asked him a question
that suppose there is an equipment, there is an object, which no one in the world has ever seen, no human being has seen if it is bought in front of you. And if the question is asked that who will be the first person who will be able to tell you the mechanism of this equipment of this object? If I asked this question to an atheist,
that an object or an equipment which no human being has ever seen in this world,
if it's bought in front of the atheist, and if he's asked the question, that who will be the first person who will be able to tell you the mechanism of this equipment? What reply Can he give you?
What reply Can he give you
manufacturer, some may say creator, some may say manufacturer, some mister producer, some will say inventor, whatever they say it will be somewhat similar, just keep it at the back of the mind. Either the thesis will tell you a creator or manufacturer, a producer, an inventor, it will be somewhat similar or maker, keep it back of the mind and continue asking the next question that how did the universe come into existence? Today it is to tell you that we have come to know that initially, our whole universe was one primary nebula. Later on, there was a secondary separation of Big Bang which gave rise to galaxies, the stars, the planets, the sun, and the earth on which we
This they call as the Big Bang.
If you ask the question to atheists, when did you come to know about this big bang. He will tell you
30 years back 40 years back, we came to know how the universe came into existence, the Big Bang. You asking the question, what you're talking about the Big Bang? Is all the mentioned the Quran 1400 years ago instead of ambia, chapter number 21 was number 30, our la mirada, Xena kafu do not unbeliever See, under some awatea what are the kinds of the heavens and the earth are joined together and we closed them asunder? what you're talking about the Big Bang is already mentioned in the Quran 1400 years ago, who could have mentioned this in the Quran 14 years ago? The atheist may say, maybe it's a fluke, I don't
have to ask him this question. That what is the shape of this earth on which we live?
So he will tell you that previously, the human beings they believe that the Earth was flat. It was in 15 177. It's a Francis Drake, he sailed around the earth that he proved that the Earth was spherical.
We asked him the question, the Quran mentions
the spherical shape of the earth 1400 years ago, and sort of nausea. Chaplin was 79 was the metatag Allah says, what are the barriers alika Haha, and thereafter, we have made the earth x shape.
The earth we live in is not completely around like a ball. It is geometrically shaped it is flattened from the poles and the egg that is referred in the Quran. The haha. One of its meanings is an expanse. One of the meanings is an egg. It specifically refers to the egg of an ostrich and if we analyze the shape of the egg of an ostrich that too is geo spherical in shape. Imagine the Quran speaks about the geo spherical shape of the earth 1400 years ago, you asked the question today test the Drupal I mentioned this in the front. We will tell you maybe a prophet masala Salah was intelligent man. No not you continue asking the next question that the light of the moon is its own
light are reflected light. So he will tell you previously we thought that the light of the moon was its own light. Recently we have come to know that the light of the moon is not its own light but it is the reflected light of the sun.
Yesterday in science means 40 years back 50 years back 100 years back. Quran mentions 1400 years ago in Surah procon chapter number 25 was number 61. That lesson is He who has made the constellation is in the skies and plays there in Sun having a light of its own and Moon having borrowed light having reflected light, who could have mentioned in the Quran 1400 years ago that the light of the moon was not its own light, but it was a reflected light, but it was borrowed light. Again, they tease me say maybe a prophet masala Salam was a very intelligent person. Don't argue with him continue.
When I was in school, I passed my school in 1982.
I had learned that the sun was stationary, it did not rotate about its own axis.
Is that what I mentioned? I said no, this is what I learned in school. I learned in school that the sun was stationary, it did not rotate about its own axis. But the Quran mentions in ambia chapter number 21 was the mortality who Alessi helical l one Hara it is allow was created the day and the night was overcomer the sun and the moon golden phallic. Yes balloon, each one traveling in an orbit with its own motion. The Arabic word yes balloon describes the motion of a moving body. And it says that the sun besides revolving, it even rotates about its own axis. And today's science tells us with help of an equipment, we can have the image of the sun on the table top and the sun has got
black spots. And it takes approximately 25 days for these blind spots to complete one rotation indicating that the sun takes 25 days to complete one rotation. Who could have mentioned this what I learned in school
33 years back.
Now the science says it is wrong.
And the Quran has mentioned this 1400 years ago who would have mentioned this in the Quran. They just may give a long pause. Don't wait for the reply. You can keep on continuing today. scientists tell us that our universe is expanding. The same message is given the Quran 1400 years ago.
inserted Herriot chapter number 51 was number 47 that we have created the vastness of space, the expanding universe.
In the field of hydrology, it was a burnout fallacy in 1500 80 was the first person who described the present water cycle which we learned in school. Previously we did not know about the water cycle. The first person was a Bernard palissy in 15. At that he described that the water evaporates from the ocean forms into clouds.
It moved to the interior, it falls down as rain and the water table is replenished. Now this water cycle is described in the Quran in great detail in several places in Arizona chapter 10 and verse 21, in three rooms chapter number 30, verse number 24, instead of more meaning chapter number 23, verse number 18, insert a job number 15 verse 22, into a new chapter 24 verse 43, industry room chapter 30, verse 48, in for chapter number 13, verse number 17. In chapter seven, verse 57, instead of for concept number 25 was 40 to 49 in Surah, fateha 35, verse number nine in Surah Kahf chapter 15, verse number 911, in Slovakia, Chapter 56, verse 68, to 70 in Surah mulk chapter 16 verse number
30 in Surah, Chapter medics was the 11 you can keep on giving references only about the cycle mentioned in the Quran 1400 years ago.
The Quran speaks about the water cycle in great detail, you can talk for several minutes on each was
talking about a cycle who could have mentioned this in the Quran 14 years ago.
And it is would be silent. Keep on there are several scientific facts mentioned the Quran. The Quran speaks about geology. Today science tells us that the mountains give stability to the earth. If the mountains were not there, the Earth would shake. The Quran says in chapter number 78 verse number six and seven that we have created the earth as an expanse while Jabba Allah, Allah tada and the mountains as takes today sensitizers that the portion of the mountain you see above the ground is a very small portion, the major portion is deep within the ground, like how when you put a tent peg in the ground, small portion remains on top, the major portion goes down, and these are roots of the
mountain, they give stability to the earth. The Quran says in Surah chapter number 21 verse number 31. That we have created the mountain standing firm on the earth less it will shake with you
in the field of geology.
We knew previously that there were two types of water, salt, and sweet. But we did not know
that why these two water did not mix. Quran says in Surah Furqan chapter number 25 verse 253, that it is Allah who has created two bodies of flowing water, one sweet and the other salty. Though they meet they're not mixed, there is a barrier between them which is forbidden to be trespassed. Today after science segments have come to know that though one type of water flows into the other type of water, it loses its constituents and gets homogenized into the water it flows. This homogenizing area the Quran refers to as an unseen barrier, which times are discovered today. And Quran has mentioned 14 years ago.
In the field of biology, the Quran says in Surah ambia chapter number 21 verse number 30. With a nominal equal sign Hey, we have created every living thing from water, who could have believed 40 100 years ago that every living creature made of water. Today science has confirmed that everything is made from water. Koran says insert a new chapter number 24 was no 45 we have created every animal from water for answers in Surah Furqan chapter number 25 verse number 54. We have created every human being from water.
In the field of botany, Quran says that even the plants have got sexes male and female. In Surah Taha chapter 20 verse 53, which became known recently, Quran says that every kind of fruits are created in paste into the rods chapter 13 verse number three.
In the field of zoology Quran speaks about the lifestyle of the animals in Suriname, chapter number six was number 13. Quran speaks about the lifestyle of the bees and sort of the hell chapter 16 verse 68 and 69 Quran speaks about the spider in chapter 29, verse 41, about the and insert animal, chapter number 27, verse number 7218. And all these aspects of the spider of the hands of the bees, we have come to know recently and Quran mentions in detail 400 years ago, who could have mentioned this?
Quran speaks about medicine, that in the honey there is healing for humankind. In chapter 16 verse number 6869. Quran speaks about the production of milk and the circulation of blood in Student Health, Chapter 16 verse 66, and sorry, maamoun chapter number 23 verse 21 1400 years ago, which we have come to recently, Quran speaks about medicine, about physiology about embryology. The various stages of the human development is described in detail in Surah maamoun, Chapter 23, verse number 12 to 14, Quran speaks about genetics,
about the sex responsible for the child in chapter number 53 was 45. Quran speaks about the fingerprinting method. And so the gamma chapter number 35, verse number three and four
Every scientific fact mentioned the Quran as the atheist who could have mentioned this in the Quran 14 years ago. And his reply will be the Creator, the manufacturer, the maker, the inventor, this creator, this manufacturer, this maker, this inventor, we Muslims, we call him as a law.
Even to an atheist, we can prove about the existence of Allah subhanho wa Taala with the help of the last and final revelation, the Glorious Quran.
We are not using science
to prove Allah subhanho wa Taala. The science is the yardstick of the atheists. Our yardstick is a foreign we are using our yardstick and comparing with his yardstick and trying to prove that our yardstick the Glorious Quran is far superior to your science.
So these type of non Muslims do dava
based on the similarities, if he thinks thanks, sciences ultimate, we use science and try and get science and the commonalities in the Quran and try to get them closer to Islam.
Allah says in the Quran in surah hell, Chapter 16, verse 25, do Allah subhanaw taala become hikma? Well, Moses has now
has an invite 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, most Gracious, we have to Tao with man and with us now. Today, the Times have changed.
Especially after 911
we find that the Muslims on the receiving end there is virulent propaganda about Islam, on the international media, whether it be the international newspapers, the International magazines, the radio broadcast stations, the television channels, there is virulent propaganda about Islam, they are bombarding people with misinformation about Islam. It's the duty of every Muslim, that he tries to remove these misconceptions.
There are various types of the Dawa. The most commonly used is that you speak 1000 good things about Islam to non Muslim, even if you speak 1000 good points about Islam to a non Muslim. And even if he agrees with those 1000 points yet. At the back of his mind, he thinks Ah, you're the same Muslim who's a terrorist. Ah, you are a fundamentalist. Ah, you're the same Muslim who marry more than one woman. You are the Muslims, who subjugate the woman by keeping up behind the veil, these few negative points at the back of the mind will prevent the non Muslim from accepting the beauty of Islam.
What I personally prefer that whenever I meet a non Muslim, I asked him upfront, what do you feel is wrong with Islam? With your limited knowledge? whether right or wrong? What do you feel is wrong with Islam? And I make him comfortable? You can ask any questions on Islam, you can criticize Islam, you can attack Islam, I will try my level best to reply.
And in the experience that I have of more than a decade in the field of Java, I have come to know that there are about 20 common questions with the non Muslims have regarding Islam.
And when they asked two three or four questions, invariably it falls amongst these 20 common questions. So if you know that apply to these 20 common questions asked by the non Muslims based on Quran, Hadith and their Scripture with reason, logic and science, even if you cannot convert him, at least you can neutralize him, you can remove the animosity which is there in his heart.
I've written a book called The replies to the questions asked by the non Muslims. And these questions arise depending upon how the media portrays Islam. And today, the number one
question is regarding the Islamic word, jihad.
It was number five on the list previously, after 911 it became top of the charts the others have come behind but it's their their
time will not permit me to reply to all these inshallah and tomorrow's talk I will deal more with this topic about terrorists about fundamentalist about extremists etc in detail. I'll just tell you how to reply to the top of the charts, that is jihad. As far as this word jihad is concerned, there is not only a misconception among the non Muslims, there is even a misconception among the Muslims.
Most of the people think that any war fought by any Muslim for any reason, whether it be personal gain, whether it be for power, whether it be for money, it is called as jihad.
Jihad that does not mean any war fought by any Muslim for any reason, whether it be for personal gain for personal money for power. Jihad comes from the Arabic word the Shahada, which means to strive, which means to struggle. In Islamic context, it means to strive and struggle against one's own evil inclination.
Also means to strive and struggle to make the society better. Jihad also means to strive and struggle in the battlefield and self defense also means to strive and struggle against oppression. So just basically means to strive and struggle.
May non Muslims, mainly the orientalist, they translate the Arabic word Jihad as holy war. And unfortunately, many so called Muslim scholars in inverted commas when they translate to the Holy War.
In Arabic, if you translate holy wine to Arabic, it would be harbor mocha de and if you read the Quran, nowhere is the word herban. mocha mentioned the Quran, neither it is mentioned in the Hadith. So Jihad does not mean holy war. Holy War was first used to describe the Crusades
with the Christians, they killed 10s and 1000s of human beings in the name of religion. That holy war was used to describe the Crusades. Unfortunately, today it is used to describe jihad, which is totally a mistranslation.
Jihad basically means to strife and Mr. struggle, one type of jihad can be qatal that is fighting, which is kita feasable. Allah fighting in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But that too, has got various rules and regulations which you can refer to my videocassette, Jihad and terrorism and Islamic perspective, which have dealt in detail about this. And I'll just give an example how to recover.
Last year I'd gone to states last year before last, I'd gone to states in Los Angeles, and
traveling 100 illamasqua different parts of the world, in various countries, including the Western countries several times, USA, Canada, Australia and other parts. I was prepared, the way I'm dressed up with a cap the beard with the code, I will show that in the US custom, they'll be asked by interrogation. So as amended immigration,
they asked me the question that made you come here.
I said that I've come to receive an award, the word award, I said, award is also humanity. What do you do? I said, I spread truth. Jesus Christ will be able to speak the truth and to show for you.
And after asking many questions, I see to it that I pick up every option to dava while going to the customs I purposely mentioned that I've come for a convention like him this time, and I've come to receive an award for that movie go and open your bag. When they open my bag they saw a tape of mine a videotape that time you do a better job than terrorism.
So the customer officer he asked me that Do you believe in God? I said yes, I believe in jihad, Jihad Mr. strife and struggle, Jesus Christ peace be upon believe ninja. He said, No, no, I'm talking about Do you believe in fighting? I said yes, even Jesus Christ peace be upon believed in fighting. If you read the Bible, in the Old Testament book of Exodus, chapter 22. He speaks about fighting Book of Exodus chapter number 32. speaks about fighting Book of Numbers chapter with everyone speaks about fighting Jesus Christ, please bear permission the Gospel of Luke chapter number 22. He said that take the sword and go and fight.
So they said, but that was fighting angles as it is. That's what the Quran says to you have to fight against that even.
And in this way, when I started doing Dawa, the customers will all gather together and there was a small mini lecture. I only told my hosts that don't worry, I'm just doing Dharma and the immigration and the customs. And Sir, can we ask you one more question? Sorry, can we ask one more question? And to cut the story short?
You should grab every opportunity.
And you should try and turn the tables over. Give the answer which he expects the least. But I don't want everyone to do that. Otherwise, they may get into problems.
As far as dealing on the higher level were to turn the tables over. If you be careful as we get into problem then your doctor Sakina told me that
depending upon the situation,
you can prove from the Bible that what the attack about the Quran. The same thing as mentioned the Bible, when I'm in India, I use a different strategy. The Master Key is the same, but I speak about Bhagavad Gita I speak about Marmara. When the Hindu say that the Quran is wrong, it speaks about fighting. I tell them that there are more verses of fighting imambara than the Quran.
But then they tell me no, but this is a war between truth and falsehood as same as what the foreign says. It is a war between the truth and falsehood, then they induce tell me we have no problem with a foreign
and if you read Bhagavad Gita, which is the most popular scripture of the Hindus
in chapter number one, verse 242, to 46.
there's a fight between the cousins, the pandas and the coloros, one of the five brothers carabas total 100 brothers
So Arjun, one of the panels in the battlefield, he puts his weapons on the battlefield on the ground. And he says, to she Krishnan, who's got of the Hindus, he does too. She Christian, I would prefer being killed an arm rather than to fight against McKesson.
Immediately next few words. Step number two was number two and three, she Christian who's supposed to be that God? He says, urgent. How could such impurities come in your heart?
How could you be so important? He calls him important.
And further, Bhagavad Gita, chapter two verse number 31 onwards, he says, It is the duty of the Sharia to fight.
If you don't fight, you will not go to the heavenly planet.
It will take you away from the heavenly planet, and bless it are those sutras to get an abortion or to fight
and most of the critics of Islam. They point out a common hadith of masala samosa Buhari point number four, in the book of jihad, Halima 46, were profitable. Salah Salim said,
if a Mujahid goes to the battlefield, if he's killed, he will get Jannah he'll go to heaven. If he comes back alive, he will get the beauty of this world he'll get the wealth of this world. And many critics, the Christian Hindus, the point if I didn't say what kind of religion is this
is talking about God fighting and you go to heaven, what kind of religion is this? I tell the Hindus that a 3d bhagwad Gita chapter number two was Timothy seven. Shri Krishna tells Arjuna
that Oh, Arjun rise and fight. If you're killed, you will go to heaven the planets. If you come back alive, you'd get the wealth of this world. It is the verbatim translation of say Buhari volume for how the sum of 46 so when these critics of Islam especially the Hindus, like Adam, surely I wonder that they haven't read those scriptures and the pointing all in the Quran, the moment to give the context and speak to them. The complete misconception is washed away.
tala calm within a minute, come to common terms as being essential.
So it is the duty of every Muslim that it conveys the message of Islam to the non Muslims dava
but unfortunately, we Muslims, we give excuses for not doing the job.
When we tell them why don't Rudaba they say inshallah, when we get the knowledge we start doing tower that time will never come. If we think we'll wait till you become like say that and then start doing Java The time will ever come. Our beloved Prophet said it's mentioned Sai Bukhari boldly go and Neva propagate even if you no one was, even if you know one verse about Islam, as long as you know it correctly, you have to do your job. It leaves the Muslim no there is one God at least is that
you know about masala Salam is the messenger in the last 10 five minutes or less mano tala actually tells that
if they ask you the question, how do you prove it? If you don't know come back and do your homework. Given the token is the Quran god but Allah subhanaw taala I've given a talk on how masala some of the various religious scriptures come home and do your homework.
In this way, inshallah Allah will help you and you will be able to convey the message of Islam.
Some Muslims come and tell me the benefits are clear. First, we want to make the most amount of muscle man we want to make the Muslims practicing Muslims and then we'll do our to the non Muslims. I say that time will never come. A Beloved Prophet vamos a la sallam, he himself could not convince his own uncle. Do you think you're better than the Prophet?
In the favorite pilgrimage
abroad program of Salah Salaam he chose the Sabbath day 110,000 sabas that did I deliver the message to you? And all of them said batiuk? Yes, verily you have done it. The Prophet told them that all those are present here deliver the message to those who are not present here. And out of 110,000 Saba, more than 100,000 sabas they were buried outside the Arab land, doing what makes you Muslim and Councilman became Muslim Muslims passive Muslims, they went into Dawa
they were Muslims who did not come for the compulsory Congress Salah did not come from the Juma Salah. The Prophet said he felt like burning their homes. Yet, he sent messengers to the king of King of Prussia, King of Yemen, asking them to accept Islam. He did not say first I make all the Muslim 100% better if you Muslim and then do our
doing Dawa is part on every Muslim it's compulsory.
But many of the Muslims tell me that when we start doing dava to the non Muslims, they tell us to mind your own business.
I tell them if a non Muslim tells me to mind my business, I will say that's what I'm doing.
It is the duty of every Muslim to mind other persons business as far as Deen is concerned.
So by doing that by minding my business, that is my business.
It is the business of every Muslim to mind other person's business as far as Deen is concerned.
It is first on every Muslim to convey the message of Islam.
And one of the criteria to China as Allah says in the Quran, in Surah, Al Azhar chapter 103, was the 123 of Allah says, Well us in in South Africa's 11 amanu Aminu solly hottie what was what will happen to us will be suffering. By the token of time, man is well in a state of loss except those who are faith, those who have righteous deeds, those who exhort people to throw that into dava and those eggs are people to patient and perseverance for any human me to go to Jannah minimum four criteria that required a man righteous deeds dava and exhorting people to patient proceedings. If any one of these are missing, you should not enter Jannah you may be a very good Muslim you may be
offering 510 Salah you may have gone for Hajj. But if you don't do Dawa, you shall not enter Jannah only thou is also not sufficient. All four are equally important Eman, righteous deeds dava and exhorting people to patient proceedings. If you do not do dava under normal circumstances you should not indigena If Allah wants to forgive you and put you in Jannah that says business as Allah says in Surah chapter four verse 116, and was number 48. That
Allah will never forgive the sin of any other sin. If he pleases, he may forgive you. So if you don't do that, when Allah wants to forgive you, that's a different question. But under normal circumstances have understood Al Asad. If you don't do Dawa, you should not entertain and especially to those Muslims who are living in a non Muslim society. It's an outward form.
It's compulsory for every Muslim to convey the message of Islam to the non Muslim.
And Allah says in the Quran, no less than three different places in Surah Tauba chapter nine was number 33. Instead of Fatah chapter number 48, verse number 28. And so that's of chapter number 61, Roscommon analisis who will Lizzy Ursula Russell Hoban Dada, what didn't lose you know, Allah de Nicola, palapa Michigan, Allah has sent His messenger with guidance and reading of truth so that it will prevail over all the other religions or all the other isms or all the ways of life, whether it be Christian ism, whether it be Judaism, whether it be Hinduism, whether it be partisan, whether it be communism, whether it be atheism, Islam is destined to supersede all Kulin master them all maloca
machico How am I the machine don't like it? And enough is Allah as a witness, Allah subhana wa Taala has promised that his Deen will prevail will supersede all the other ways of life. Allah subhanho wa Taala does not require you and me the rubbish that via Allah Himself is sufficient to make his Deen prevail. He does not require you and me the rub is that via he's giving us an opportunity to do a profit job and to earn a profit reward. I would like to end my talk by giving the condition of the Buddhist Quran from sorry for Silla, chapter number 41 verse number 33 says woman has a new column in mandorla law he
will call indian indian Muslim men who is better in speech than one when wise to the view of the Lord was righteousness and says that I'm a Muslim Walker Dhawan are hungry later Bellamy
color hair I hope inshallah, that we will benefit

inshallah. Good evening and Salaam Alaikum. To everyone.
I'm constantly navantia leader of Hara Council.
I'd like to give a very warm welcome to Zakir why, on behalf of Harrow Council, and multicultural multi faith community of Harrow, you're very, very welcome.
Since I'm limited to one question, I will follow the discipline. It's been very thought provoking address. I'm very grateful for that. You have analyzed to some degree of detail, various religions, the Islam, the Hinduism, Judaism, and even atheists. Is it a question of equality of religions? Or do you reckon that there is a case for supremacy of one religion against another? Thank you. The brother has a very good question. That is the question of supremacy of one religion or the other religion.
Basically, what is the meaning of the word religion? religion means a way of life.
I'd rather believe what the Quran says. Rather than talking about supremacy, the Quran says tala will occur within savoir in bind Amina Come come to common terms as been as in you. If there is a question of supremacy then each one will try and prove that religion is the best. For others. The Quran advises when we speak with people following other religion is tala will occur within Sawa why a miner may come to common terms as we ascend you. So I personally disagree with the interfaith dialogues that take place normally in the world. Normally, what happens that there is a person coming from the Christian faith, priest, and coming that all religions are the same. Christianity is
the same in drizzle, same Islam is the same, then you have a Hindu pundit coming and saying Hinduism is also correct and same Islam is the same Krishna the same, then they get Joker Muslim, who comes and says that Islam is the same Hinduism sukesh Addison, see I being a student of Islam and compiled religion. It is a big lie to say that all religions are the same. There are commonalities, but they aren't the same. There are differences. I can talk more about differences and the similarities but the Quran encouraged us to talk about similarities. What my strategy is better, that I tell that at least let us agree that one religious scripture is 100% perfect.
So the Christian will say fine, I don't mind believing that Bible is 100% the Word of God, then they would say I would not mind believing the Vedas to be the Word of God. Now Muslim will say I don't mind considering Quran is the word of God. I'm not trying to put anything on the top of somebody who has not been put anything down the throat. Now what I see that what is common in all these scriptures, at least that does agree to follow that strictly.
What is different we'll discuss it later on.
So when we come and try and find the commonalities, in all the scriptures, we find that the commonality is the same. All of the Scripture say believe in one God. I gave you references from the Bible. Bible Moses, peace be upon him said in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter number six, verse number four, Shema Israel, not naked, God, Israel, the Lord our God is One Lord. When Jesus Christ peace be upon us asked that which is the first of the commandment, he repeated verbatim, the same thing in the Gospel of Matthew, chapter number 12, was number 29. Shama is right below at 100. naked, which means you're Israel, the Lord our God is One Lord, if within the scriptures if we do
punishers it's mentioned handle your Punisher chapter number six. section number two was number one, it comes with a theme. It's the Sanskrit tradition, which means God is one without the second. It's mentioned in the shadow shadow Punisher chapter number six, verse number nine, not Jessica sage, Jonathan, Deepa, which means of that God, he has got no superior. He has no Lord. He has got no parents. He has got no mother. He has got no father. He has got no superior
It's mentioned in Shashi Tharoor Punisher chapter number four verse number 19, not a sympathy master of him. There is no images. I can give quotation from Bhagavad Gita Upanishads VEDA several talking about oneness of God. So I say that why don't all of us believe in one God? Bhagavad Gita, chapter number seven was sama 20 says that all those whose intelligence has been stolen material desires, they worship demigods. They do idol worship. So if you read the Vedas, and Bhagavad Gita and the Upanishads, they say there is one God, it's against idol worship. They don't believe in Almighty God coming down. They believe in Almighty God sending messengers. So I say that let us the Hindus, the
Jews, the Christian, the Muslim, at least believe that we worship none but one Almighty God, and that God has got no images, you cannot be forgotten. It's mentioned the Bible, it's mentioned but what does that mean in the Quran?
If you studied all these scriptures, the next point to come to know which is common is that there is going to come a final and last messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. I give you quotations in my lecture about Judaism and Christianity. I can give you references even from ninja scriptures. If you publish a Parana for over 303 a day three shlokas 10 to 27. It speaks about homosassa alum is speaker conductas atharvaveda book number 20. him number 127 was the one to 14 speak about Hamas Allah Salam. There is a book called as Kalki Parana it speaks about an outer Faculty of thought to come its mission the Hindu scriptures in Kalki Purana that there is a final outer anthem Rishi last
messenger going to come whose mother's name shall be sumati which means peaceful, which means Amina. It says the Father's name shall be a one who worships Almighty God. Vishnu Yosh translate the Arabic It means Abdullah the name of the parents of mama Salah Salaam, it says that he will be born on the 12th month of model which was Rob Bo Well, it says that he will be the last and final messenger masala last and final messenger. It says that he'll be held before companions talking about the first four calyx of Islam and on and on, he will be born in the place which is known as peaceful sambala which is Makkah, it'd be born in the family of the chief of Makkah. I've given a talk on
masala Hindu scripture, the second point of communism to me, after being one God, you have to follow the last and final messenger to come.
That is prophet masala Salam. It speaks about life after that.
The Jewish scriptures, Christian scriptures, Hindu scriptures and Islam.
When Hindu Scripture speaks about foreigner, gentlemen, it speaks about next life. It doesn't speak about life that life that that's the misconception poner miss next gentleman's life we believe in life after that, but not being born and that born dying born died. That's the misconception. So what I say at least that is agree what is common. So all the major religious scripture, whether it be Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, speak about one God and speak about the final messenger to come whose name shall be Muhammad Salah Salam. So if all of them follow the last and final messenger,
they have to follow the revelation given them have to follow the finance. So rather than talking about supremecy, we have to go back. There's only one religion.
And the one religion has Allah says in the Quran in Surah Al imraan, chapter number three verse number 19. in Medina in the line Islam, the only religion acceptable in the sight of Almighty God is submitting your will to Almighty God.
Islam submitting a will to Almighty God. It's not a label, a person by keeping in a Muhammad Sultan Abdullah Zakat, he will not go to heaven. Just by being a Muslim name. Muslim is a person who acquires peace by submitting his will to Almighty God. So all the religious scriptures that came previously brother, by the passage of time they have been changed. Quran is the last and final revelation, which has been kept in its pure form. But in spite when all the other scriptures have been changed upon to the scholars, you read the books of Hindu scholars of Christian scholars, they say the scriptures have been changed. But even after they have been changed, there are remnants of
truth in them, which speak about the last and final messenger masala Salaam and talking about one God. So if you go back to your scriptures and at least follow the commonalities that nothing like supremecy will culminate, only one religion that is submitting to Almighty God. Hope to answer the question.
And I ask if there are any sisters who are non Muslims who would like to ask a question first. On the sister side is a non Muslim sister, which is to ask a question. Good evening, Dr. nygh. My question to you this evening is with all due respect to Islam, you said that idol worship is the greatest synonym
Islam and Allah does not forgive an idol worshiper for this. But what about people who have been born into families of religions other than Islam? For example, in India, most of the population is Hindu and lifelong. They may not have had exposure to Islam, or somebody else who may have educated them about that. What is the fault of those people? Will they never reach paradise? Will Allah never let these people enter paradise? What is their fault? If they believe what has been taught to them since the day they were born? does Allah not have mercy on them? Thank you. That's a very good question. very logical question. What about those human beings are born in non Muslim families? And
the parents are doing idol worship. So who's to blame? How can Allah punish them? And that's a very good question, that there isn't a beloved Prophet Muhammad Salah Salim said that every child is born in the universe with every child is born as a Muslim, irrespective of who is born in a Jewish family, or a Christian family or a Hindu family or a Muslim family. He is born as a Muslim. Muslim, as I told earlier, by definition means a person who submits to Almighty God. So every child when he is born, he submits a will to Almighty God, later on, he is influenced by his elders, by his parents, by teachers, then he may start doing idol worship, you may start doing fair worship, and he
may go to the wrong path that there isn't whenever a non Muslim accepts Islam, the more appropriate word is revert. It's not convert, convert with going from one phase to another faith. revert means a person was on the right faith, went to a wrong faith and came back to the right faith. So the more appropriate word system is revert. Now coming to your question, how can Allah hold responsible a person if he's born in a non Muslim family, that is there even if a child is born a non Muslim family before he gains maturity, if he dies, he will go to Agenda inshallah, why every child submits to Almighty God, he's a Muslim, he may have a Hindu name or a Christian name john Ramu it doesn't
make a difference. But as long as he is a child, and if he died as a child sister, that child will go to gender irrespective whether is born in a Muslim family or non Muslim family. Later on, when a child grows up, and it becomes an adult, then it is his responsibility. What he does,
that there isn't if a child commits a crime, the court is lenient. When it becomes an adult, then you cannot say that my father taught me to rob the farm robbing.
If a child grows up at the age of 22, and if the police catches him after robbing, he cannot say that my father taught me to rob the farm robbing village, let him go. If he's a child at the age of five, that may say, Fine, he's a child, he haven't attained maturity, but once he becomes an adult, and then if that adult tells the judge that I'm robbing because my father taught me to rob he will not be excused, everyone responsible for his or her own team. Now, once a person becomes an adult, it is the duty of that adult to find the truth. It is the duty of all Muslims to convey the message to the non Muslim.
But irrespective whether a person gets the message or not, if a human being is that free, there were two tribes, which did not come in contact with modern civilization, till as late as 1951 tribe was a couple ku tribe and the second was Astra, in Aborigines, these two tribe did not come in contact with modern civilization, till as late as 1950. And many searchers went and tried to find out what was their way of life.
It was nothing but Islam. But they didn't call themselves Muslims. They believe in one God, they believe that God had got no images, he had no ideas, they prostate him and they worship God. It was everything of Islam but in name.
So, if a child is not given any external influence, he submits his will to Almighty God and remains on that path. Now once a person becomes an adult, it is the duty of as Muslims to convey the message of Islam. If we do not convey Allah will hold us responsible.
He Lola responsible, but irrespective whether we do the job or not, will be responsible. But Allah says in the Quran in surah chapter number 41 was number 53 sunnery Maya Tina Fey lavake Buffy unfussy him had yet begun a novella, that soon we shall show them over signs in the furtherest regions of the horizons and into the soul, until it is clear to them that this is the truth, Allah has taken upon himself that he will directly convey this message to every human being himself.
So if a Muslim does his job or not, whether there are good examples of bad example, Allah will directly put in the heart of every human being, whether Muslim or non Muslim, about the truth about one God. So once the message comes, that human being may follow may not follow. He may not follow thinking that if I accept this
I have to give up the thing which are like am I have to give up my alcoholism, I may have to give up dating and dancing and, you know, whatever thing which is haram in Islam, he may not accept the message, then he's responsible. Similarly, if the father teaching them something wrong to rob, it's his duty to realize that robbing is it's a sin is the thing which is wrong. He cannot go and tell the judge that because my father taught, therefore I'm robbing similarly or when Allah directly puts a message into the heart of every human being about the heart, about the oneness of God, and the idol worship is prohibited, yet if the individual continues, he or she is responsible. So on the Day
of Judgment, therefore, Allah says, that no non Muslim will ever object to the justice of Allah.
Because your organs will give witness about you, your eyes, your hands, will speak about you. So on the Day of Judgment, even those people will be put in hell, they will never object to the justice of Allah subhanaw taala what they will say, Please give us one more chance and Allah will say it's too late. There are many choices given in this world, but to live only once in this world. So on the Day of Judgment, no non Muslim, no human being, even if it's put in hell will ever object to the justice of Allah. He'll only say that please forgive me and it will be too late. Whatever is there in this world? This world as Allah says in Surah, Chapter 16 verse number two is a test of the hereafter
problems the question system
is any other anonymous team who wishes to ask a question to Dr. Zakir Naik?
If not, then you may proceed, sir. Thank you Assalamualaikum. My name is Nova Ahmed, and I'm a surgeon to be a good surgeon in it to be well trained. I just wanted to ask Dr. Nayak to do dow. Well, how important do you think training is? That's the question that he the surgeon and to be a surgeon you have to be trained to
do you have to be well trained? Yes, better. But the question is our beloved prophet masala Salaam said in St. Bukhari, baliga, uneven or IR propagate? Even if no one was. So if you no one was at least go and convey that
if you say that I will wait till I become like shake emojis and then start doing Java that time will never come. So the thing the criteria for doing surgeries you have to get a degree if you don't get a degree and if you do surgery, you may be arrested or you may put behind bars fine. Similarly, for dava even if no one was as long as we noted correctly, you have to do our now as in medicine, human MBBS. Then there is MD then there is dm, MSS de then MC H is they find the more you keep on spending time, the more you'll become an expert. Now for doing your surgery, you may spend minimum about six, seven years correct. Only after passing a standard or a level whatever it is here.
How much time have you spent for the hour? How much
so when we want to become an engineer, you spent four years when you're a doctor, you spent five years dava you don't do overnight.
You can't become an expert overnight, but at least you make a beginning at open your mouth.
As far as I'm concerned.
In my childhood, I was a stammer. Even in middle 2000 stammer, if you asked me what was my name, and my name is Azam Sasaki, that was me. When I mentioned emojis are inspired by him. And I started with Java. And I realized when I spoke with non Muslims, I never used to stem
normally normal a normal human being when he comes on the stage, he will stumble. In my dreams I could have dreamt of becoming the best surgeon in the world.
I could have dreamed you know, in your dreams, you can dream anything. But I couldn't dream of speaking in front of 25 people. I was a stammer. And now hamdulillah was Allah
am giving talks in front of 1000s of people, hundreds of 1000 I haven't given a talk in front of a million people live in LA.
So if you go back, if you see my life back, I would be the last person, one of the last category who could do Dawa. But I did jihad. Jihad means to strive and take us on to strive and struggle and
strife and struggle. And Allah opened up the pathways. Allah says in Surah chapter 29, verse number 69, if you strive in Allah spot, Allah will open up your peace, I strive to hamdulillah and the moment I got involved in the field of Dharma, my stammering went away yet I do stammer sometimes of the stage, but on the stage at hamdulillah labs me It's a miracle.
I was inspired by a gamma d that whatever I learned, whatever I heard from his cassettes, I started talking. I started talking, Allah kept on helping me more and more now I'm here. Even if I'd been the best surgeon in the world, all of you wouldn't have gathered here correct.
And the respect that Allah has given me at this young age, he
In effect, been the best surgeon in the world, the people that want to meet me the people I meet the kings, the shakes the ministers, and
I never did allow for fame or popularity. I took up medicine I'm a medical doctor, because I thought it was the most noble profession. It is. And I'm not saying no, but I found a noble profession. Therefore I change from a doctor of the body is a doctor of soul.
But the best thing, brother, whatever we have heard today,
people normally enjoy the clap. Tomorrow back to work. They are the same. And they go back towards they should try and repeat something for me what they heard at least 10% if not 10% 5%, at least 2%
and the moment you start,
Allah will help you.
So the moment you keep on doing that, while I haven't done any course. I haven't been trained by anyone
else Allah, Masha, Allah helped me and without help, it's not possible. But we have our training courses in Bombay, maybe 10 people, it's a short course of about 30 to 40 days, maybe 10 people. And believe me, if you hear the speakers have a foundation, all of them can code chapter number verse number Bible, Bhagavad Gita, Hadees Khurana hamdulillah at the fingertips. Firstly, the help of Allah second is hard work. Third is technique. So number one is hard work is from your technique we give that is the least important, but you don't wait till you become an expert. What do you know start, and then I'll help you move on to the question.
I have a question here from a non Muslim brother. His name is Peter. Notice how can you explain why is music bad? The non Muslim friend has a question that why is music bad. There is no direct reference in the Quran which speaks about music as being bad than indirect references, but there are a decent profit of masala Salaam who was committed on music, musical instruments, the only thing he permitted was the Duff and the others he had not permitted. The reason being that most of the time when musical instruments are used, it normally puts a person in a trance in a different frame of mind. And many times if you analyze the Quran, the Quran is against songs and poetry there's a full
that speaks about poets. What happened is that normally in songs and music,
the songs that are there if you analyze the words, most of the songs they are away from the entity. And in a song when people start praising impressing the opposite person, the more they try to impress opposite person, the more they deviate from reality. Therefore in Hindi film songs, you will find that the hero tells the hero in that tanto de la casa de la Ganga I'll get for you the moon and get for you the star which is not possible. And same thing when you are in the English up and rock. It has no meaning person many of the songs some have got Not at all. And it takes a person away and along with the musical instrument whether it be heavy metal, you know, we find that people go in a
frenzy they take out their clothes and their different frame of mind. So most of the time the music takes you away from Allah subhanho wa Taala. So that is the reason the Prophet has discouraged and said that musical instruments should not be used except for the Duff. That is a it takes a person away from Allah subhanho wa Taala towards Allah subhanaw
taala Can I ask sister from this side please? Thank you.
I just wanted to ask about the meaning of the Felice from Sahih Muslim. On with the wider the Muslim Ummah is one, at the exclusion of all others. Their land is one their war is one, their peace is one their trust is one and this this hadith relevant to ask Muslims living in a non Muslim society whose armies are killing Muslims expelling them from their homes and fighting them as we speak. The system wants me to throw some light on the date of the part masala Salaam that a Muslim is Anoma irrespective of their living and there are various Hadith The Prophet said that it's like one body and if one part of the body is hurt, then all the rest of the body is also in pain. So in that
context, as far the Muslim home is concerned, irrespective whether we're living in a Muslim society or non Muslim society, whether living in UK or America or Saudi Arabia, the Muslim Ummah is one and if one part of the room is hurt, it is a duty as far as possible, whatever ability a person has got, he should see to it that he helps. So there are various situations for example, if you know that there is one part of the Muslim Ummah, which is poor, or doesn't have enough resources to feed themselves, it is the duty of the other part of the Ummah to see to it that they give them whether it be from God money or from subcommittee whatever it is, so that they help the other part of the
Muslim ummah. Now we know the scenario is such that we find that certain portion
In the Muslim Ummah, they are being attacked, they are being harmed. So whatever capacity we have, in whatever ability we have got, it is a duty that we as Muslims, as a beloved partner masala Sallam said that if you find anything evil, the best is to stop with your hand.
If you cannot stop with the hand, stopping with the tongue, if you cannot stop with the tongue, the least you can do is curse in your heart. And then if you do that you are the lowest level of a Muslim.
So, when you see anything wrong, if you can stop it with the hand, do it.
If you cannot stop with your hand, then transdermal with the tongue, if you can do that, at least curse in your heart. If you find something is happening, maybe a robbery is taking place. If I have given you the ability to stop with your hand, if you feel that the person that were most when you're a lean person, and the 10 of them, at least branched off with the tongue. Please Mister, don't rob, if you can't do that, at least because in your heart,
not depending upon the ability that we have got.
We have to do that. Now we find unfortunately that the scenario that we have that especially after 911
we know that what happened in 911 was wrong.
Allah clearly mentioned in chapter five, verse number 32, that if anyone kills any other human being, whether Muslim or non Muslim, unless it be for murder, or for creating corruption in the land, it is as though he has killed the whole of humanity. So killing any innocent human being is haram. So what happened in 911? More than 3000 5000 people were killed innocent people, and if to be condemned? Who did it? I don't know.
The media says XYZ. I don't know. But whoever did it is wrong. What happened in London,
on the seventh of July, more than 50 people were killed, innocent human being, it needs to be condemned, whoever did it is at fault. It is wrong. But what we have to realize
that unfortunately, when Muslims live in non Muslim society, they tried to be over apologetic. We find in America we find in UK, all the Muslim body get together and they condemned the 911. Correct, no problem. They condemned what happened in seventh of July in London, which I do condemned. But in the same breath, we also have to condemn the 1000s of people killed in Afghanistan, we also have to condemn.
We also have to condemn the 1000s of people killed in Iraq. What's happening in Palestine every day Muslims are being killed. What happened in Bosnia? We have to condemn that too. Why do we stop?
Unfortunately, when I read reports, all the Muslim bodies get together, and they're condemning only part of it, why it's the same. What is wrong is wrong. If a Muslim kills the innocent human being has to be condemned. Similarly, for non Muslim kills, the innocent Muslim even has to be condemned. Who are we afraid of, but you have to do it with ECMA. If you fear that you opening your mouth
will create a problem.
But don't mention long things. Therefore, as a die, we should know how to turn the tables over.
So what we have to realize that what is wrong we have to condemn.
And believe me, I've been to America several times in USA and Canada, I've been to UK. The thing is, is that if you rely for a talk on Islam and terrorism, in all hands around the topic, what we realized that many times, two different labels are given for the same activity of the same individual. For example, in India, there were many Indians were fighting for the freedom about 6070 years back, when the British ruling India, now these people who fought for the freedom by the British government, they were called as terrorists. But we come in Indians, we call them a freedom fighters, same people, same activity, but two different labels. If you agree with the view of the
British government, that they had the right to lower India, you have to call these people as terrorists. But if you agree with a view of the common Indians, that the Britishers came to India to do business, they have no right to lower us, then you would call these people a freedom fighters. You call these people as patriots, same people, same activity, but two different labels. So before you give a label, have to first try and find out what reason is the person striving. If we see the history of American Revolution, in the 18th century, in 1775, the Americans got the freedom, the Britishers ruling them. And the two people who were called number one terrorist was Benjamin
Franklin, George Washington. According to this British Government, George Washington, most terrorists number one, and later on the same terrorist number one becomes the president of America.
imagined terrorists number one, according to Pew
Government becomes the president of America. And he happens to be the godfather of all the American presidents to follow, including George Bush.
So what we see today is whoever is in power, what he says carries it.
We can give an example of the apartheid government of South Africa white about the government. They imprison Nelson Mandela for 25 years. They called him terrorists, number one.
After the government was removed in the New South Africa, Nelson Mandela become the president. A few years later, he gets the Nobel Prize for Peace. Imagine the person who was called terrorists, number one, is given the Nobel Prize for Peace for the same activity, not that first he was bad, and then he became good for the same activity for which he was called a terrorist. Later on, he gets the Nobel Prize for Peace.
What we come to know whoever is in power, what he says, turns out to be the gospel truth which is not the case.
What we have to know we have to go to the root cause. So we as Muslims, what we have to do sister is we have to speak for the hug. So while I've given you the power with a hand, we can stop it, do it with a mouth, where the mouth lift you can do is close in your heart and pray for the man answer the question.
My name is Zack Han and I work as a lab scientists. My question is, what advice can you give to do practical Dawa, such as in town center where you can build communication with non Muslims? Without the question that how can you do practical Dawa, in Davos calls etc. Rather the examples that I gave in my talk, you can use that that try and use the strategy have come to common terms. And one thing is having the technique one thing is knowing how to do our, for example, how to deal with our co passenger travelling in a train is a different technique, how to Tao story, the different technique, how to try a new school is a different technique for this we have an hour training session, where we
train people how to dava you can go to our website irs.net on the GDP, our training program and the information is there. Hope that answers the question.
I have a question here from anonymous him. His name is ravinder His name is ravinder I'm a non Muslim, I am a Sikh and I believe that all religions are right. And there is one God everyone will go to heaven irrespective of being a Muslim, a Sikh, etc. There are different disciplines to reach him. I presume God, Sikhism Islamism, what do you have to say? The Buddhist poses the question, he's a sick he says, All religions are right, all one god 40 FSA will all go to heaven.
Brother, I am a student of comparative religion. According to me, all religions are not right.
in the region itself, there are many contradictions in the religious scripture itself. Now coming to Christianity, if you analyze in Christianity, there are so many contradictions in the Bible. There are so many things that are unscientific in the Bible. So Bible, according to me is a mixture it may contain the word of God. It contains the word of Prophet it contains the word of historians. It even contains pornographic file to say, How can I say that this pornography, the Word of God, there are many mathematical conditions I can give a talk only in the mistakes in the Bible. There are so many unscientific things mentioned the Bible. The Bible says the world is flat.
I can give a talk on that time doesn't permit me. Same thing with the Vedas. Though I give talks on the VEDA, there are many things which I disagree in the VEDA, there are things in the VEDA we say the Almighty God created the Brahmin from the head, the Sharia warrior class, from the chest, the business cards of Asia from the thighs, and the shoe drives the low class from the feet. Islam doesn't believe that human beings have been created in caste and levels. So how can you say all liens are right? Again, according to Scripture, it says that, if a husband dies, then in the fire, the wife should jump the video, which is totally wrong.
The VEDA says that the sun moves around the earth which is unscientific in this by doing comparative religion, I cannot say that all religions are right part of all the religions are right you can say that without in mind what I'm saying only follow that part which is right, what is wrong You don't have to follow. So in this way, brother, I disagree with you, I must enough compiled religion you can see my cassettes are spoken on various religions, on Judaism, Christianity, Hinduism, Sikhism, Buddhism, etc. So only what is right you have to follow what is wrong. You don't have to follow up next.
question please from this side. We have to end our program very shortly so I will ask to speed up inshallah. As long ago My name is Sabina. Forgive me for my own clarity. This is a rather spontaneous question. I have a friend
She's an atheist. And on our endless debates on the existence of God and all that we talk about, she has two claims she makes two claims. When I posted with the question of what the Quran says in terms of the existence of the universe and the world, and how it states many facts, she turns around, she says, well, that knowledge was not just for the grind, it actually existed before the grind, there's scriptures, there is books, before the grind was even written, detailing information about the universe, though it's not just this knowledge that is superior to the grind. What do I say back to that? Is she lying? Do scriptures exist? I mean, I have ignorance myself. But, you know, is this
knowledge like, was this available before the Quran was written? And so secondly, another claim she makes is that I give the analogy of, you know, you have something in creation, who knows it, you know, the creator will know about everything about it. And I talked about, you know, if there is no God, how can we possibly exist? If you keep on going further and further and further and back, there's no end? And if there's no end, how do we exist? Then she says, Well, from a religious point of view, you say, Well, God is the end? Well, I say is an atheist, who says God is the God who created God. That's my question. Thank you.
For two questions, which I can comment. The first question is that all the things mentioned in the Quran was already present before. So what's new, it's present other scriptures and other books, etc? That the first question second question Who created God? As far as the first question is concerned, I do agree that certain things were present in time before the Quran, but they were not called as established facts.
They will not call the established facts. For example, the thing I quoted that the sun, previously people thought that the sun rotating, there are certain things which were there in the Greek history and the philosophy of history. But for example, when the Quran speaks about the spherical shape of the earth, these Greeks, they believed that the Earth was spherical, but no one believed in them.
So certain facts, not all, a small percentage for the science has come through today. And what Quran mentions were told by people previously, but they fail to realize that the same Greeks mentioned 100 other things which were unscientific. The same Greek even mentioned that the ortho center of the universe, which is totally wrong. So imagine if 100 points are mentioned, and Mama salon salon picks up one which is correct, that's also not possible.
So I do agree with your sister that certain things were mentioned before signs established as a fact today, but these things weren't established that time. And to say that out of the 100, false things I mentioned, one thing is right to pick up the one correct thing is again, also not possible one fifth possible, but not 1000s of times system, because only a person who is even a scientist cannot do that. Only the Creator Himself can do and that's Allah subhanaw taala. So, I do agree with you, but that portion, which has been mentioned earlier, in earlier scriptures and other philosophical books, is a small portion, but that too, along with that portion, there are other things which
unscientific mixed with that, coming to the second part of the question, that who created God. Normally people in Dawa they used a false strategy of logic, which tips yourself, most of the people when they try to prove the existence of Allah subhanaw taala. They say that everything has a creator, for example, who created this book? How did the book come into existence? Somebody created it, who created it? In the go back? Where did you come into existence, who created you, your father, who killed your father, the grandfather, and then goes to God, who created this microphone, created the factory, who created the factory, and then they try and prove who created the sun, God who
created the moon. So based on this, the trend prove that everything has a creator, which according to me, is the wrong logic.
In my strategy, vote I spoke today and never said everything as a creator. That is the atheist who told me that the first person who will tell about the mechanism of this thing is the creator.
I never said that.
I say every created thing as a creator. But by definition, Almighty God is uncreated. It is like the person.
Suppose my friend, he comes and tells me that my brother john was admitted in the hospital.
He gave birth to a baby, was it a girl or a boy?
Can you guess sister? Was it a girl or a boy?
Brother john gave birth to a baby mother a girl or a boy.
But the john was admitted the hospital he gave birth to a baby, was it a girl or a boy?
Can you guess?
You can guess Can anyone guess?
How can a man have a baby? So to ask the question he gave birth
To a baby, more than a girl or a boy isn't logical, the same thing the definition of allies uncreated, the moment you say okay to Allah, He ceases to be Allah. Therefore the definition of God is uncreated. Therefore Almighty God has got no creator if he's a true Almighty God. Hope that answers the question.
Due to the shortage of time, I will allow three very quick questions and quick answers inshallah. So, three questions 123 and we'll have three quick answers inshallah. Brother, please state your name and your profession, Salaam Alaikum. My name is Joe Hall. I'm an accountant. Just very quickly, it's a pleasure to hear Dr. Zakir Naik since first time I heard him it was one of my ambitions to come and see you via Sharla. You gave a lovely talk. My question is there's a famous Hadees saying by the prophet peace be upon him that we should seek knowledge on to China. Now I've talked to a lot of brothers about this. And my perspective on it, even though I haven't researched it is that this
knowledge does not talk about religious knowledge. Because then religious knowledge at the time was in Saudi Arabia, where the Prophet peace be upon him was, and people all over the world were coming to see him at that time for religious knowledge. But what is the question but what is this my question is this idea? does it relate to religious knowledge or knowledge of the dunya? Science, maths, etc? The question that the Prophet said that seek knowledge even if you ever go to China, because religious knowledge was in Saudi Arabia, it was worldly knowledge. So does it mean you can go to China for worldly knowledge? Why number one brother, according to the National money, this
hadith is a modal Hadith. It's a fake it is not very tidy.
Because the center of education even at that time
that I was in China, this hadith is a fake Hadith, but that doesn't mean your question is not valid. You have to use other Hadith to prove your question. The first guidance given by Allah subhanaw taala to the whole of humanity was not to pray was not to give Zakat It was a cry. In surah. Allah chapter 96 was number one acre and a beloved prophet number Salah Salam said it's mentioned by hockey, it is obligated on every Muslim man or woman to acquire knowledge. So acquiring knowledge is further than Islam is compulsory. It includes the more obligatory is the deen knowledge. But that does not mean you cannot go and travel even for worldly knowledge. You can as long as you fulfill
the criteria, even for worldly knowledge. You can, as long as it benefits you, it gets you closer to Allah subhanho wa Taala. Hope that answers the question.
One more question on the sister side please very quickly. Go My name is Irina, and I'm a graduate you may have answered this question in part already. On the question of though many people asked me how is it just for a very good, righteous non Muslim to go to hell? For example, Mother Teresa, what happens to their good deeds and what is the best way to answer them? Thank you. Since that is the question What about the righteous non Muslim like Mother Teresa? Will she go to heaven or hell?
As I mentioned my talk the criteria to go to heaven the criteria or agenda or four, according to Fidel acid, while us in South Africa's lls in amanu Aminu solly hottie but also will happen to also be suffered. By the token of time, man is very rare state of loss except those who are faith, those of righteous deed, those who do dava and those who exhort people to patient procedurals, minimum four criteria are required to go to Jannah. Similarly, when I was in school, I passed my ICSC in 1982. There were minimum six compulsory subjects. English was their mathematics science, history, geography Hindi compulsory, I asked me the question sister
in five subjects out of six, I get 99 out of 100. In one subject, I get 10 out of 100 in science, will I passed under 10?
Yes, oh, no, no. But I've got 99 in English 99 in Hindi 99%. in history, if I fail in any one subject, I fail. Similarly to go to Jana, for guide require demand, righteous deed, exhorting people to true Dharma and exhorting people to patient perseverance. Now you say Mother Teresa was righteous. Righteousness includes offering Salah giving that are many things. But even if I agree with you, for sake of argument, always a non Muslim, that Mother Teresa was righteous for sake of argument. And if some righteousness include many things, which I feel that I didn't have, but even if I agree with you for sake of argument, she gets 99.
Only man, what about demand?
So if she does silk, which is even mentioned in the Bible, if you read the Bible in the book of Deuteronomy, chapter number five, verse seven to nine, and the book of Exodus chapter number 20, was the material five, it says, that thou shall have
Nor the image of me, Thou shall not make unto thee any graven image of anything that isn't heavens above in the earth beneath and the water beneath the earth, Thou shall not bow down to them not serve them for thy God, thy Lord, which is God. So doing sherek is even Haram in Christianity. And in the Quran. Allah says in Jeremiah, chapter number five, verse number 72. Let's see what is the verdict given by Jesus Christ peace be upon him jfks peace be upon him says in the Quran in Jeremiah chapter five, verse 72, Allah says, that, look at the Xena calu in Allah Who, who will mercy of Nima Rama they are doing. They are blaspheming those who say that Jesus son of Mary is Allah subhanaw
taala will call mercy but said Jesus Christ peace be upon him. Yeah man Israel, ocean of Israel. Allah worship Allah Robbie, who's my Lord and your Lord enormous Shrek Bella. Anyone who associate partner with Allah for Katara manorial Jana, Allah will make gentle haram for him. mamajuana Romani, salamin and SAR and fire shall be dwelling place and he shall have no helpers in the hereafter. So Jesus Christ peace be upon him said in Noma Sheikh Bella, anyone who associate partner with Allah first adhara Malala Jana, Allah will be gentle agenda term for him, paradise will be forbidden for him mamajuana Ramallah Germany minahasa and fire shall be joining pace, and he shall have no helpers
in the hereafter. So according to Jesus case, please be a part of the Quran and the Bible. If any human being does sherek whether it be Mother Teresa or anyone else, they should not an agenda.
I have to apologize. This will be the last question. We have a number of handwritten questions here. Because of the time constraints, I will apologize, we will be unable to cover these questions in part of our program. So my apologies, please, brother, can you state the last question, may I ask the other brothers and sisters to take their seats for the close of the program in Sharla? My name is Adam Smith. I'm a 16 year old student during my GCSEs. And my question, regards doctrinal statement previously about saying Merry Christmas to non Muslim, makes us somehow submit the fact that well, the idea that Christ was the Son of God, and it makes us one of them. Now, that sort of
shocked me in a sense that surely Allah, in his own likeness would know that my intention to saying someone Merry Christmas is, as you said, just to improve relations. Now, the thing is that most people, at least of my generation, people who I come in contact with, don't actually celebrate Christmas, because they celebrate Christ's birth, but actually is the commercial thing to get the latest gifts to or whatever it is. So could you just please expand on that? Because I'm sort of confused how saying Merry Christmas could somehow bring blasphemy, the brother of asked a question that he wants to wish Merry Christmas to his friend so that he can build relationships. So tomorrow
asked me the question, why can't I have a pack of alcohol to build relationship?
What's wrong? Why can't I eat some coke with them? Why can I go to church and worship jesus christ peace be upon him. See, you don't have to do anything haram for doing Dawa. for reaching the goals you cannot use wrong means further. What is haram for them is haram for you also, when you are wishing Merry Christmas to them, you are agreeing that Jesus Christ peace be upon him was born on the 25th of December and you're agreeing that he is the biggest Son of God which is
why it is wrong because the Christians they believe that Jesus Christ peace be upon them is the Begotten Son of God.
Now irrespective of they may be a practicing Christian not they celebrate because the birthday Why don't they celebrate any other day? So if you tell your Christian friend okay forget if you don't believe in that. Let's celebrate instead of 25th of December Let's celebrate on the 10th of October will they agree they say no. But that does not be don't do divided on Christmas.
I asked them that they see the Christmas season Why is it Christmas? to date me? Oh, it's Christmas because Jesus Christ please be born was born on 25th December. Who is this Jesus peace be upon him? Oh, Jesus is the Son of God. Then I tell him that can you prove to me from one unequivocal statement from the complete Bible where Jesus Christ Please bear himself says that he's gonna worship me. I do Dawa. Why do you have to use wrong me for doing that?
You ask the question is saying Merry Christmas wrong mean I'm telling you it is wrong. Okay. 100% wrong according to me. If you don't know what Christmas is celebrated for, like by mistake if you don't know it is alcohol and you think it is Pepsi and you have it? Allah forgive you. So if you don't know what is Christmas standing for being in UK. Do you know what Christmas stands for? Well, as of now you come from outside. Well as now I think it stands for short, bloody stands for commercial business. That's where it stands for. It stands for commercial business.
Again, a place where people give each other presents. What do they excuse? Not don't
wish. I'm asking the question. Do you know what is the excuse for commercial business? What is the excuse? Why are they celebrating Christmas? For what? Because birth Christ tight finish you know about it and really consider Jesus Christ peace be upon him as the Son of God began his son, do you know that? Yeah, I know that. I know that. And then if you wish, Merry Christmas around. If you didn't know if you're coming from Timbuktu
if you're coming from Timbuktu when you did not know and in ignorance, if you wish, Allah may forgive you. If you don't know that, that is our corner. If you think it is Pepsi, and you drink it, Allah forgive you. But if you know it, and you think you're building relationship, you know what you're doing, you're building a place in the jahannam. So therefore, brother for reaching any good means you never have to adopt wrong means you have to go as the guidance of the Quran and the Sunnah. Hope to answer the question, why after davon Alhamdulillah Bellamy
brothers I'm so sorry. We have no more time. I'm sorry. Rather, we have no more time. My sincere apologies. We cannot ask any more questions. We'll just close with reflections by brother shaddock. Well, chairman of hydro central mosque in Sharla
which will lay her off mana Rahim. My job was to provide some reflections on the talk by Dr. Zakir Naik. But how do you provide reflections in a few words on such an amazing and such a talk full of such information? I think the best that I can do is to quote the Hadith of the Prophet Muhammad sallallahu alayhi wa sallam, in which he said hydro nassima yan from nuts. The best of mankind is He who brings most benefit to them. And to summarize Dr. Zachary Stoke, the best benefit that we can bring mankind is to bring them Islam with our as Dr. zakian has so eloquently taught us.
On behalf of the Committee of the Harrison Ramos and the people of Harrow, I'd like to give my personal thanks and our collective thanks to Dr. Zakir Naik decided to Kalani brother Bashir sitar and his colleagues to Zack aloha salaam aleikum wa rahmatullah.
