00:00:00--> 00:00:08

Now we have the speaker for today. Dr. Zakir nice to speak on concept of bots.

00:00:37--> 00:00:37

Well, hello,

00:00:43--> 00:00:43

Dr. Muhammad,

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

Swami,

00:00:48--> 00:00:49

father to

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

the learned people,

00:00:52--> 00:00:57

my elders, and my dear brothers and sisters, I like all of you. What is

00:00:59--> 00:01:00

our plan while a

00:01:04--> 00:01:04

Blessing

00:01:06--> 00:01:08

of Almighty Allah be on all of you

00:01:10--> 00:01:10

the topic

00:01:11--> 00:01:18

of today's symposium in the dialogue organised by the Philippine Learning Center

00:01:20--> 00:01:21

in the life perspective,

00:01:23--> 00:01:26

religion, according to the Oxford Dictionary,

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

I believe,

00:01:29--> 00:01:37

our superhuman controlling power, a personal God of God, that deserves worship, and obedience.

00:01:39--> 00:01:46

The main theme of today's symposium is concept of God in various religions.

00:01:48--> 00:01:54

And I've been asked by the organizers to speak on concepts of God and Islam

00:01:57--> 00:02:00

come from the root word, which means

00:02:01--> 00:02:05

it also means submitting your will to Allah.

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

Almighty God.

00:02:09--> 00:02:10

It's not

00:02:11--> 00:02:13

acquired by submitting your work.

00:02:16--> 00:02:18

And any person who submits

00:02:19--> 00:02:23

to Almighty God, it's called as a Muslim.

00:02:26--> 00:02:28

Regarding the concept of God,

00:02:29--> 00:02:34

the best answer that any Muslim can give you is the Holy Quran,

00:02:36--> 00:02:36

the terracotta

00:02:38--> 00:02:38

that is

00:02:39--> 00:02:40

step number one that

00:02:41--> 00:02:44

was number one to go with pozwala

00:02:46--> 00:02:47

allow one and only

00:02:49--> 00:02:51

time are lost.

00:02:52--> 00:02:52

And

00:02:55--> 00:02:56

not knowing

00:02:57--> 00:02:57

what

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

that is nothing like

00:03:03--> 00:03:09

the whole definition of Allah subhanho wa Taala of Almighty God which is given the Holy God

00:03:10--> 00:03:12

any candidate who claims

00:03:13--> 00:03:15

that he is

00:03:16--> 00:03:17

Almighty Allah

00:03:23--> 00:03:27

have got no patience in accepting that person I've got on my

00:03:30--> 00:03:30

football

00:03:32--> 00:03:34

I love on the second day.

00:03:38--> 00:03:40

TARDIS love unit one of

00:03:41--> 00:03:45

the biggest not noisy, and the fourth one.

00:03:47--> 00:03:48

There is nothing like

00:03:50--> 00:03:52

anyone that joins

00:03:53--> 00:03:56

is Almighty Allah Almighty God, if you could

00:03:59--> 00:04:03

have gotten up and accepting that candidate as God Almighty.

00:04:05--> 00:04:06

There are some people

00:04:08--> 00:04:11

in the world, for example, who say that

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

by one,

00:04:15--> 00:04:16

All Mighty God,

00:04:19--> 00:04:25

Almighty God, put any kind of claim to the Almighty God to the test of the Holy Quran.

00:04:26--> 00:04:28

Chapter 112 was a wonderful

00:04:34--> 00:04:34

All

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

right.

00:04:39--> 00:04:40

We know that

00:04:41--> 00:04:42

God man,

00:04:47--> 00:04:48

God Almighty,

00:04:49--> 00:04:51

there is not only one regard.

00:04:54--> 00:04:55

The second is Allah.

00:04:58--> 00:05:00

Almighty God you should be

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

Absolute.

00:05:04--> 00:05:07

We know when he read his biography, that he was suffering

00:05:09--> 00:05:13

from diabetes mellitus, from chronic backache and

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

that

00:05:16--> 00:05:18

the American government, there is no point

00:05:19--> 00:05:21

in it imagine God Almighty

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

God,

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

protected,

00:05:28--> 00:05:28

not noise.

00:05:30--> 00:05:32

You know, that was born his

00:05:33--> 00:05:35

father and his mother, who later on became his own disciples.

00:05:41--> 00:05:43

This man, he took America for

00:05:44--> 00:05:48

America, he went to Oregon and started his own.

00:05:50--> 00:05:52

And later on, when you're from America,

00:05:53--> 00:05:54

I started.

00:05:58--> 00:05:59

But when you go to Puna,

00:06:01--> 00:06:02

when you enter the

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

Osho commune, you find a black hole

00:06:07--> 00:06:08

that Bhagwan

00:06:11--> 00:06:36

never bond never die, but visited the arts, from the 11th of December 1931. To the 19th of January 1990. They forgot to mention that he was not given to 21 different countries of the world. Imagine God Almighty, coming to visit the world, and he's not allowed to enter 21 different countries, do we believe in such a God, and

00:06:38--> 00:06:43

that if you don't take out from the country, we will burn his house and

00:06:45--> 00:06:47

put any candidate who say that he got on

00:06:49--> 00:06:53

the test, we must agree that candidate to the Almighty Allah,

00:06:56--> 00:06:56

the vortex

00:06:58--> 00:07:03

that no one besides Allah, Allah, Almighty God can positive.

00:07:06--> 00:07:08

There is nothing like

00:07:09--> 00:07:10

suppose

00:07:11--> 00:07:17

that Almighty God is 1000 times as strong as

00:07:21--> 00:07:22

the person what

00:07:23--> 00:07:33

was the strongest man in the universe, the strongest man in the world. Suppose someone says that Almighty God is 1000 times as strong as

00:07:34--> 00:07:39

the moment you can compare Almighty God to anyone, whether 1000 times

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

whether

00:07:43--> 00:07:44

or not data at

00:07:45--> 00:07:49

the moment you can compare Allah subhana wa Taala to anything.

00:07:53--> 00:07:54

There is nothing like

00:07:56--> 00:08:02

this is a poll and definition of Allah in a nutshell, which is given.

00:08:04--> 00:08:07

There are various other religions who believe in the

00:08:12--> 00:08:13

Almighty God.

00:08:16--> 00:08:17

And

00:08:18--> 00:08:19

there will be for logic,

00:08:20--> 00:08:22

that Almighty God

00:08:24--> 00:08:31

is so pure, that how will we come to know what is good, what is bad for the human being? He will not.

00:08:32--> 00:08:35

So, therefore, to know what is good and bad.

00:08:36--> 00:08:42

According to other religions, God Almighty took the form of a human to know what is good or bad for them,

00:08:43--> 00:08:45

to know how it is for the person

00:08:46--> 00:08:48

to know how it feels when a person is happy.

00:08:49--> 00:08:53

In order to know what is good and bad for human beings, God Almighty.

00:08:54--> 00:08:58

They take the form of it's known as I support more.

00:09:01--> 00:09:03

On the face of it, it sounds very logical.

00:09:04--> 00:09:06

But I was asked the question, let's suppose

00:09:08--> 00:09:10

I invent a tape recorder.

00:09:11--> 00:09:26

Do I have to become a tape recorder? what is good and what is bad for the tape recorder and the trade of the tape recorder I need not become a tape recorder to know what is good or bad for the data recorder. What do I do? I write an instruction manual.

00:09:29--> 00:09:31

That if you want to play the

00:09:33--> 00:09:43

play button, if you want to press the power button, if you want to fast forward button. Don't drop it. If you did damage

00:09:44--> 00:09:46

don't get in the water it requires

00:09:48--> 00:09:48

a manual.

00:09:50--> 00:09:51

Similarly,

00:09:52--> 00:09:57

God Almighty, Allah subhanho wa Taala he does not have to take the form of a human being

00:09:58--> 00:09:59

a man amongst Me too.

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

deliver his message

00:10:02--> 00:10:03

as messengers

00:10:04--> 00:10:08

on a topic of Allah subhanho wa Taala, he chooses

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

to do the job.

00:10:15--> 00:10:22

If you allow me to call the human in the machine, I would say it is the most complicated machine on the face of the earth.

00:10:24--> 00:10:28

The more complicated the machine, the more requirement of an instruction manual.

00:10:31--> 00:10:31

The manual for the

00:10:35--> 00:10:35

instruction manual is

00:10:37--> 00:10:38

the do's and don'ts.

00:10:39--> 00:10:42

As mentioned, this is a fucking manual for

00:10:45--> 00:10:47

that there were several revelation.

00:10:49--> 00:10:54

But the last and final revelation is the Holy Quran. There was nothing

00:10:55--> 00:10:58

but the last and final messenger of Prophet Muhammad, Allah, Allah.

00:10:59--> 00:11:08

We have to believe in the last and final prophet, and the last and final revelation, that is the Holy Quran. This is

00:11:09--> 00:11:10

the do's and don'ts.

00:11:13--> 00:11:17

There are some people who argue that why can't God

00:11:19--> 00:11:20

can do everything

00:11:26--> 00:11:27

that God can't.

00:11:28--> 00:11:30

But the moment he takes the human form,

00:11:33--> 00:11:36

the moment we no longer remain.

00:11:37--> 00:11:39

You know why? Because

00:11:40--> 00:11:43

the definition of God Almighty, and we will be

00:11:45--> 00:11:47

the product of Almighty God.

00:11:49--> 00:11:50

Almighty God.

00:11:54--> 00:11:56

You can't have an immortal mortal person.

00:11:57--> 00:11:57

It's not possible.

00:11:59--> 00:12:14

God Almighty has got no beginning. no end. You may have a beginning. And you gotta have a person who has no beginning and it's not possible. You can't have a person who has and as low as it

00:12:16--> 00:12:18

is God Almighty takes the form of

00:12:19--> 00:12:28

he can take but he will not. Because the moment he takes the form of a human being, he ceases to be Almighty God, who no longer remains Almighty God.

00:12:32--> 00:12:33

There are certain qualities

00:12:36--> 00:12:41

and qualities of Almighty God. For example, you may be required to

00:12:42--> 00:12:44

God Almighty does not require

00:12:51--> 00:12:56

anyone to protect. besides Allah subhanho wa Taala, the Creator of the heavens and the earth

00:12:58--> 00:12:59

but does not require to be

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

limited.

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

They require

00:13:06--> 00:13:08

God Almighty does not require

00:13:09--> 00:13:10

but I'm taking it

00:13:12--> 00:13:13

was number two,

00:13:14--> 00:13:15

Allahu Allah, Allah.

00:13:17--> 00:13:18

Allah I know that.

00:13:21--> 00:13:22

Number can not.

00:13:25--> 00:13:31

You cannot have a god man. You can either have God or you can have a man, you can't have God magic.

00:13:32--> 00:13:33

Exactly.

00:13:34--> 00:13:38

And the moment God Almighty take the form of a human being, he will not

00:13:40--> 00:13:41

no longer remain God Almighty.

00:13:43--> 00:13:47

He cannot later on again become God Almighty. If you can become the living human I can become.

00:13:48--> 00:13:50

No human being can become God Almighty.

00:13:52--> 00:13:59

God Almighty took the form of human being, I can agree with you, you can become much, much later on. Again become God Almighty.

00:14:01--> 00:14:04

Because if a human being can become God Almighty, I can become God Almighty.

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

I suppose

00:14:08--> 00:14:14

I believe and worship Almighty God who has all all these qualities

00:14:15--> 00:14:16

of everything.

00:14:18--> 00:14:19

All Powerful, etc.

00:14:21--> 00:14:26

But the moment you lose quality and become the human being, I no longer required to watch.

00:14:28--> 00:14:29

For example,

00:14:30--> 00:14:35

I respect a teacher, very knowledgeable. And I am the front of the teacher.

00:14:39--> 00:14:40

Say for example,

00:14:42--> 00:14:44

later on, you have an accident.

00:14:48--> 00:14:49

And I didn't

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

know because he adopted qualities. The moment he loses the quality, which he had the knowledge of time, no longer

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

idea.

00:15:02--> 00:15:07

I can say that you are the bad person. I can say that effectively, but you're longer than I do.

00:15:09--> 00:15:16

Because he has lost his knowledge, the quality for which I was no longer has the quality.

00:15:19--> 00:15:20

God Almighty.

00:15:23--> 00:15:24

The moment he takes him

00:15:25--> 00:15:26

to be Almighty Allah,

00:15:34--> 00:15:35

God Almighty

00:15:36--> 00:15:37

can be called

00:15:39--> 00:15:41

branches. What I did

00:15:43--> 00:15:43

was,

00:15:47--> 00:15:48

I got fired,

00:15:50--> 00:15:50

to call upon him,

00:15:52--> 00:15:52

or call upon Him,

00:15:54--> 00:16:07

to call upon Him, to him along the most beautiful name. For the Holy Quran, you can call Allah subhana wa Taala by any name, but it should be a beautiful name, it should not.

00:16:09--> 00:16:21

And the Holy Quran, no less than 99 different attributes to Allah subhanho wa Taala 99 different attributes to Allah subhanaw taala. behind the bar.

00:16:24--> 00:16:29

Seven, multiple was the creator, no less than nine.

00:16:31--> 00:16:33

call it love to Allah.

00:16:34--> 00:16:34

Allah,

00:16:36--> 00:16:36

Allah,

00:16:37--> 00:16:38

Allah.

00:16:39--> 00:16:44

These are the attributes of Allah subhanho wa Taala. But

00:16:45--> 00:16:48

if you single out attributes,

00:16:49--> 00:16:49

and you take

00:16:52--> 00:16:55

we have got no objection, but it will seal out an attribute,

00:16:57--> 00:16:58

attribute a different definition.

00:17:00--> 00:17:01

attributes are different.

00:17:04--> 00:17:05

Then we take

00:17:06--> 00:17:07

an example,

00:17:08--> 00:17:11

suppose someone described, the doctor

00:17:12--> 00:17:15

who's the president of the foundation

00:17:16--> 00:17:18

is the chairman of the IRA.

00:17:20--> 00:17:23

He's the president of the Islamic dimension.

00:17:24--> 00:17:25

He's the husband.

00:17:28--> 00:17:33

He's the father of Paris. All these are different

00:17:34--> 00:17:34

attributes,

00:17:36--> 00:17:38

or different types of definitions of doctor doctor.

00:17:42--> 00:17:46

He is the president of Islamic Foundation, a correct definition

00:17:50--> 00:17:50

of

00:17:51--> 00:18:00

the correct definition. But if you pick up each definition, each attribute and give it a different form, for example,

00:18:01--> 00:18:03

not exactly nice, is about

00:18:08--> 00:18:09

reducing complexity.

00:18:15--> 00:18:21

But now that the president of Islamic psychology is not a nice

00:18:26--> 00:18:43

doctor, Dr. Max is the president of the Congress. But the moment you give it a different form, instead of five to seven inches. You say that you weren't happy, then Dr. Dr. Knight is the president of Islami the foundation, but he is not going to happen.

00:18:46--> 00:18:47

Dr. Dr. Knight is the husband

00:18:53--> 00:18:53

who does not

00:18:55--> 00:18:57

Dr. Dr. Knight is the husband.

00:18:59--> 00:19:00

But not

00:19:02--> 00:19:09

so you can get attributed to Allah subhanho wa Taala Almighty God but don't get a different phone.

00:19:10--> 00:19:13

If that doctor doctor nice,

00:19:14--> 00:19:17

the president of Islamic foundation and

00:19:18--> 00:19:31

then the deputy is wrong. Because why am the president of Islamic foundation I'm also the husband of my wife, which is karate knife. I'm also the father of my

00:19:33--> 00:19:39

document to find out one attribute and this attribute alone

00:19:40--> 00:19:41

all put together.

00:19:43--> 00:19:46

Similarly, when you're describing Allah subhanho wa Taala we can very well

00:19:49--> 00:19:49

but

00:19:51--> 00:19:54

that is a different Allah and

00:19:55--> 00:19:56

Allah subhanaw taala

00:19:57--> 00:19:59

harvick is a different dentist

00:20:00--> 00:20:02

Back to your the concept of Allah subhanaw taala

00:20:03--> 00:20:05

all put together

00:20:06--> 00:20:09

with Allah, this is what major religions

00:20:10--> 00:20:21

pick up one attribute and they call it a different god they pick up another attribute given a different form and call it another god in Islam all these attributes put together

00:20:22--> 00:20:24

you guys figure out one attribute

00:20:25--> 00:20:27

alone is Allah subhanaw taala

00:20:32--> 00:20:33

that if you call water

00:20:37--> 00:20:40

is the thing you can call water in Arabic

00:20:42--> 00:20:44

and the South Indian languages

00:20:46--> 00:20:48

you can call it whatever any

00:20:50--> 00:20:51

water can be called as my

00:20:52--> 00:20:52

as

00:20:54--> 00:20:54

you can call

00:20:55--> 00:20:56

language.

00:20:57--> 00:21:01

But suppose, someone tells me that water and finally say

00:21:03--> 00:21:09

that what is the definition of water. So, he starts describing that water is actually

00:21:11--> 00:21:11

the same as water

00:21:12--> 00:21:18

is a mixture of water to be added to a little bit a

00:21:19--> 00:21:26

little bit. What is describing is actually a couple of things. You're not describing Water,

00:21:28--> 00:21:41

water and finding is the same thing in different languages. But the moment you say that finally something which has got has got has added water, it is no longer water.

00:21:42--> 00:21:46

The word is correct, the attribute is correct, but the definition is wrong.

00:21:48--> 00:21:53

You can give various attributes to Allah subhanho wa Taala but it should not be

00:21:55--> 00:21:58

the moment to give an attribute to God Almighty and have a different picture.

00:21:59--> 00:22:00

We

00:22:01--> 00:22:01

don't have any magic.

00:22:04--> 00:22:05

Allah subhanaw taala

00:22:08--> 00:22:15

the moment as human beings start giving a different mental picture to different attributes of God Almighty that

00:22:16--> 00:22:22

alters and deviate away from the concept of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:22:24--> 00:22:25

otherwise the Holy Quran

00:22:27--> 00:22:27

beside

00:22:30--> 00:22:31

Allah,

00:22:32--> 00:22:33

Masha, Allah Allah,

00:22:35--> 00:22:36

Allah, Allah

00:22:37--> 00:22:43

by whichever you call upon Him, to him along the most beautiful name, you can call him by any

00:22:45--> 00:22:49

method. And step number seven was

00:22:51--> 00:22:52

definitely with when he was

00:22:54--> 00:22:58

number 59 was number 24. That you belong, the most beautiful.

00:23:02--> 00:23:03

We prefer calling

00:23:05--> 00:23:18

by the Arabic name a lot, the English word God. You know why? Because the English word God, it can be played around with you can pray for God, which you cannot do with Arabic word Allah.

00:23:20--> 00:23:23

If you add an extra God, it becomes a broad

00:23:25--> 00:23:28

theory of God. There's nothing like Allah.

00:23:30--> 00:23:31

Allah.

00:23:32--> 00:23:39

If you add a god it becomes affiliate God did nothing like May Allah.

00:23:41--> 00:23:43

Allah, Allah god no gender.

00:23:45--> 00:23:52

If you add a father to God, it becomes godfather. He's my godfather, he's my guardian. There's nothing like

00:23:53--> 00:23:54

Islam.

00:23:55--> 00:23:58

If you are a mother to God, because God Mother.

00:24:00--> 00:24:01

Mother

00:24:03--> 00:24:04

is a unique word.

00:24:05--> 00:24:08

If you please think before God becomes God,

00:24:09--> 00:24:11

okay, God, there's nothing like

00:24:12--> 00:24:13

that.

00:24:14--> 00:24:19

The Muslims, we prefer calling Allah subhana wa Taala by the Arabic name Allah.

00:24:20--> 00:24:26

Word, God. I'd like to end my talk by quoting about the Holy Quran from Korea and

00:24:27--> 00:24:27

work them

00:24:29--> 00:24:33

to Dubai and not towards people who worship God decide.

00:24:34--> 00:24:36

Abuse nodes, those people

00:24:37--> 00:24:40

who worship God besides Allah, let

00:24:41--> 00:24:43

them abuse Allah subhanaw taala
