It is an honor and a pleasure for me to be back in the beautiful country of Oman.
I'd like to thank the Government of the Sultanate of Oman
and the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic affairs, for hosting me for this lecture tour.
is my third time that I'm coming to this country of Oman.
The first time I came was in 2006. The second was 2009. And now after a long span of 14 years Alhamdulillah I'm back in this country.
Just like a lecture given
the topic of today's talk of mine is the Quran. A global necessity.
The Glorious Quran is the last and final revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala which was revealed to the last and final messenger, Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.
Allah subhanaw taala says in the Glorious Quran, in Surah, Rod, chapter 13 was committed yet Allah says Macaulay Culkin had
Kulia didn't get up in every age have we sent a revelation? According to Allah subhana wa taala. In every age, Allah has sent a revelation
by name, there are four revelation mentioned in the Quran, the torah, the Cebu, the Injeel, and the Quran. The Torah was the heat the revelation, which was given to Moses peace be upon him. The Cebu was the way he that revelation which was given to David peace be upon him. And the injeel was divine revelation which was given to Jesus peace be upon him he Salah Salem, and the Quran was the last and final revelation, which was revealed to the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him.
there were several revelations that Allah has sent. For example, the Quran speaks about Sufi Ibrahim,
the books that were given to Prophet Abraham peace be upon him, but the name is not mentioned. So there were several revelations sent on the face of the earth by name only four I mentioned the Quran. But all the revelations that came before the last and final revelation, the Glorious Quran, they were meant only for a particular group of people, and they were meant for a particular time period.
But because the Glorious Quran is the last and final revelation, it is not meant only for the Muslims or for the Arabs.
It is meant for the whole of humanity
because this last and final revelation, the Glorious Quran is meant for the whole of humanity. It is a global necessity.
Last one author says in the Quran
in surah Ibrahim
Chapter 14 Verse number one,
that we have given the book to D that is Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him so that he may lead the humankind from darkness to light.
Not only the Muslims, not only Arabs, but the Quran says Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him would lead the whole human kind from darkness to light. Allah repeat is a message in So Abraham chapter number 14 was Psalm 50. To hear the message for mankind. Let them take one in there from let them know that is then God and let the men of understanding take heed.
Allah says in surah Baqarah Chapter number two was number one define Ramadan was the month in which the Glorious Quran was revealed as a guide to humankind as a criteria to judge right from wrong and Hamdulillah. Today was the first day of the holy month of Ramadan.
And Allah makes it holy because the Quran was revealed in this month.
Allah Allah says in surah resumo, chapter number 13 and Muslim 41
that we have given the book to Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him so that he will instruct the humankind so the Glorious Quran was not meant only for the Muslims or the Arabs. It was meant for the whole of humanity
the Glorious Quran,
it is the future world Constitution.
It is the most positive book in the world.
It is a proclamation to humanity.
It's a fountain of Mercy and wisdom.
It is a guide to the earring.
It's a warning to the heedless. It's an assurance to those in doubt. It's the fullness to the suffering and it is a hope to those and display.
The Glorious Quran
is a global necessity because it is the last and final revelation of the Glorious Quran which was meant for the whole of humanity.
It is a global necessity because it is the future world constitution.
The Quran is a global necessity because it is the most positive book in the world.
The Quran is a global necessity because it is a proclamation to humanity.
The Quran the global necessity because it is a fountain of Mercy and wisdom. The Quran is a global necessity because it is a guide to the earring. The Quran is a global necessity because it's a warning to the heedless. The Quran is a global necessity because it is an assurance to those in doubt. The Quran is a global necessity because it is a foolish to the suffering. The Quran is a global necessity because it is a hope to those in despair.
Whenever you have a new machine, or a new equipment,
it is always accompanied by an instruction manual.
If you allow me to call the human being a machine, you'd have to agree it is the most complicated machine on the face of the earth. It is more complicated than the most advanced computer in the world.
Don't you think?
The human beings required instruction manual
the instruction manual for the human being if
it is the Glorious Quran.
The Glorious Quran is the instruction manual for the human being the do's and don'ts
for the human being if given in the Glorious Quran
because the Glorious Quran is the instruction manual for the human being it becomes a global necessity
Allah says in the Quran in surah Mulk chapter number 16 was number two, Allah the colossal mortal Hatta It is Allah was created that a life to test which of you is good in deeds?
Have you ever thought
why are we here in this world? I would like to know how many of yours how many of us in this auditorium have ever thought what is the purpose of existence? What is the purpose of our life? Have we ever given you the thought
that Why have you come on the face of the earth?
Can you raise your hand if everyone thought of this question
okay mashallah about 10 10% of the people have thought of it. Good.
We are here we are living
little less than 8 billion human beings in the world today, close to 8 billion human beings in the world. Why are we here? What is the purpose of our life?
Allah says in surah Daria chapter number 15 on roster 51, Mark collected Gina OLALIA. Abdul
we have created the man and the jinn not but to worship me.
Our main purpose of this life is to worship our Creator, our Sustainer, our cherisher Allah subhanaw taala.
the Quran, a global necessity is a very vast topic.
And I've given hundreds of different lectures and in every lecture called the Quran, Quran Quran chapter numbers number, all the lectures can be part of this lecture.
I've given a talk on what is the purpose of our lives, which is for about one and a half hours with the question of session three hours
you should watch it that why are we here? What is the purpose of our existence? Our purpose is
to the bother of a creator to worship our Creator. When we obey His commandments, we are worshipping Him. When we obey the guidelines given in the Glorious Quran, we are worshiping Him and we are fulfilling our purpose of creation.
And I've given in detail in this talk, that how people are mainly they have different centers of life.
Some of well centered, some of society centered, some of wealth centered,
some fame centered,
but a Muslim should be Allah centered.
And for that, you have to follow the Glorious Quran, every human being
should be centered around our Creator Allah subhanaw taala, it will not only benefit you in this one, it will benefit in ACARA also, he should be Allah centered and will not permit me to spend more time on this particular aspect
of Allah subhanho wa Taala
if given in a nutshell,
in a beautiful Surah Surah class, chapter 112 was number one to four. This is the touchstone of theology, to meet God Rajim study theology mystery of God, so a class is the touchstone of theology.
And the thorough it's only for us
and our prophets that it is equal to 1/3 of the Quran.
Means the message given in this four verses also the class is equivalent to the 1/3 value of the Quran
and Allah says in this Quran in this surah
cool Hola. Say He is Allah and only
Allah has Samad Allah, the absolute and eternal lamb you live well amulet. He biggest not noisy begotten? Well I'm your fan. There's nothing like him. This is a full line definition of Allah subhanho wa Taala given in the Glorious Quran, if any candidate claims him to himself to be God or Allah, if we fit in the following definition, we Muslims have no objection in accepting him as Allah subhanaw taala This is the touchstone of theology.
this concept of Allah subhanaw taala. As I mentioned in the starting of my talk, that there were various revelation sent on the face of the earth,
to every nation.
But the last and final is the Glorious Quran because the earlier revelation, they were meant for a particular type of people for a particular group of people for a particular time period. Allah did not think it fit to preserve it.
So besides the Glorious Quran, all the previous Revelation are not available in their pristine purity.
But because Quran last and final revelation, Allah says in surah huger chapter 15, verse number nine, that we have revealed the Quran and we shall got it from corruption
in spite of the earlier revelations not being preserved in this pristine purity yet, when you do a comparative study of all the religions, you find that even if the scriptures have been altered, have been manipulated, have been concocted yet. The message of Tawheed is there in
All the scripture of the major religions in the scriptures of all the major religions and I've given a talk on concept of God in major world religions
that the basic message of all the religion is tied.
And Allah says in the Quran in surah Imran Chapter number three was number 64.
Will you look it up, see people have the book, Tolo Electra limited in binary, come to common terms as between us and you, which is the first time Allah Illallah that you worship them but Allah, Allah knows Sugarpea che you that we associate the partner of the team wala yet Takita Bogdanova than Arbab and Minella that we erect not among ourselves, lords and put it
If they turn back *a Lucia do say bear witness, we are no Muslim moon, that we are muslims bowing to Allah subhanaw taala. This was of the goddess Quran, according to me is the master key for Dawa.
When you speak to the people of other faiths, it says Thilo Illa Kalamata Inshallah, in binary nabina, come, come to common terms asked us and you which is the first term Allah now with the Ilala that we worship then but Allah, so main aim
is to worship of a one and only creator.
every human being
in this world is Marrakech to them, whoever you feel is Almighty God, you put this God of yours to the test of for a class. If he passes the test, He is the true God. Otherwise, he's a fake god.
Let me give you an example. There are many people in the world who consider Bhagwan Rajneesh
to be God. You may have heard the name of Bhagwan niceness.
We are from India from Pune.
Let's put this Bhagwan Rajneesh to the testosterone class. The first is called haula. Who say he's alive and only is Bhagwan Dyson is one and only. We know today there are 1000s of
men who are claiming to be God not the only one. But the rational bucks do you say no, no, He's unique. Okay, let us go to the second test.
Allahu Samad. Allah, the absolute and eternal was Rajnish absolute eternal. We know from his biography he was suffering from us Tama from chronic backache from diabetes mellitus. Imagine Almighty God suffering from trauma, from chronic backache from diabetes mellitus.
La midazolam EULA he biggest not noisy begotten. We know Rajneesh had parents,
who wanted Madhya Pradesh. Later on his parents became his own disciples.
he leaves India and goes to America and in the state of Oregon, he starts his own village called average Nish Purim
later on the American government arrest him and put him behind bars. And then Rajnish alleges that in the prison, the US government gave him slow poisoning. Imagine Almighty God means low percent.
Later on his deported comes back to India and in the city of Pune, he starts his new center called as Osho commune.
And when you go to Osho commune, you will find on Samadhi mentioned the Bhagwan Das Nish, never born never died. But visiting the earth from the 11th of December 1931. To the 30th of January 1990. They forgot to mention on his Samadhi that he was visiting the world, he was not given visa to more than 30 Different countries of the world.
Imagine Almighty God coming to this world to visit the world, and he required visa to go to different countries.
And the last test, while Aamir Khan loco found that nothing like him is so stringent that no one besides Allah can pass the moment you can compare God to anyone in this world. He's not God.
He doesn't really know.
There are two eyes, one nose, one mouth, one beard. The moment you can compare God to anything in this world, he's not God while a miracle local 500 For example, someone says that Almighty God is 1000 times as strong as Arnold Schwarzenegger. You may have heard the name of unfortunately, the person who wrote the title Mr. Universe,
the strongest man in the world, the moment you can compare God to anything in this world, whether it be unfortunately, whether it be data
think whether it be King Kong, the moment whether it's 1000 times or a million times, the moment you can compare Allah to anyone in this world. He's not Allah. He's not God, Mala Mia can local find out that nothing like him.
This formula given in the Glorious Quran, the touchstone of theology, to identify who are creators, I request all the human beings in the world checkup.
The god you're worshiping, if we pass if it passes the test of a class, he's a true God, if it fails, it's a fig God. This is the touchstone of theology, because Quran contains the touchstone of theology. The Quran is a global necessity to identify who is your Creator, who is your Sustainer who you're cherishing.
Allah says in the Quran, in front researcher performance 48
And three, chapter four, verse 216.
If Allah pleases,
he may forgive anything.
But Allah will not forgive the sin of joining gods that him
Allah says in friendly such a performance 48 And certainly such a proposed 116 Allah will not forgive the sin of joining gods by associating partner of the team. Any other thing if he pleases me, forgive for anyone with joined gods, anyone who has done *.
He's created a new thing he strayed far away.
So the biggest thing in Islam, the biggest thing according to the Quran, is Schilke associating partners with Allah subhanaw taala with Almighty God.
Allah says in surah, chapter number 22, verse number 73, that all those who you worship besides God, all the idols, all the fake gods that you worship, besides Allah, if all of them gather to create a fly, they will not be able to create, leave aside creating a human being the Glorious Quran, faith, all those who worship besides the true God, Allah subhanaw taala if all of them gathered together, they will not be able to create a fly, and there was continuous
The world doesn't stop there, the world continues. And if that fly takes away something from you, you will not be able to get it back.
Leave aside create a fly. Allah is telling in the Quran, if that fly snatches something from you.
If it's not if something slips on your food, hand takes your food away. You can't even get it back.
fibula, those who petition female are those to whom they petition weaker, those people who invoke
to other gods and we got those to whom they invoke
because the Quran is giving you the formula to identify a creator, the Quran is the global necessity for every human being.
You know, the doctors tell us that for healthy body, you have to have three meals a day.
Allah says in the Quran,
for a spiritual
body for a spiritual mind. You have to offer Salah five times a day.
Allah says in the Quran in surah surah chapter number 17 Verse number 78 is for attach opportunity was 230 and three room chapter number 30 was the Messiah at that the fight time which is complicity for the human beings to pray.
Salah the right translation is not prayer because English is the deficient language.
To pray Miss to ask for help to beseech in Salah besides asking for help, we are being guided by Allah subhanaw taala so I prefer thing it programming towards righteousness. Salah is a programming towards righteousness. And I've given another lecture on this topic salah the program it was righteousness.
We have been programmed
a computer you know, once it's programmed it can be deprogrammed. They may be virus, but the human beings when we keep on walking around the world, the evil we see around us the wrong thing we see around that there are high chances we can get deprogram for Latins program yourself minimum five times a day
the before sunrise
after the third highest point, a sir between half point and
And I found said Margaret, immediately after sunset and
when the night when the light goes away Isha five times
after the Surah Fatiha, which is the guidance for us,
the mommy recite
yarlington Armano in number camrol My su oh you believe most certainly intoxicated and gambling, it's a fatal handiwork upstream for me that may prosper. We have been guided not to have alcohol not to afford not to steal, not to rob, to be honest, it's a programming towards anxiousness.
It's keeping us human being on the string straight path.
And I say there is no appointment more important than the appointment with Allah subhanaw taala
you know when we are appointment with a VIP with the minister we are careful read once you know we we come before time, if it's King head of state more before time, Allah is above all of this.
We can afford to miss that appointment compulsory five times a day.
And yet if you want to be closer, then you have the that Mugler that allows for that you can hear my talk salad the programming to the justice
Allah faith to us it's complicity for every
Muslim, that he should give 2.5% of his excess saving. In charity. It's called a circuit. It's compulsory charity. If every rich human being in this world, this charity body will be eradicated from this world there will not be a single human being who die of hunger.
If everyone gives a cut and follows this, there'll be no poverty. Therefore I think Quran is a global necessity to remove poverty.
Quran faith in Surah Baqarah Chapter number two verse 23 was 183
Fasting was prescribed to people who came before you. Fasting was prescribed to you as it was prescribed to people who came before you. So that you may learn Toccoa you may learn God consciousness you may learn piety.
Today, the psychology they tell us
that if you can control your hunger, you can control almost all your desire.
So we have been trained
to control our desire by controlling hunger.
Fasting is a training for us human beings to come closer to Allah subhanaw taala become more paths
and Ramadan. According to me, I say it's the all holy. As I said if you consider a machine or if you have a vehicle like a motorcycle or a car, you have to keep on servicing it once in three months once in six months. So I serum than is servicing of the human body once a year
for one month, and scientific evidence has shown that if we obtained for about 12 hours a day for one month, there are various benefits, you can refer to my program.
One of the largest talk I've given is Ramadan a day to Dr. Zakir.
It is of type two episodes of 50 minutes each
day for about 26 to 27 hours, Ramadan, a day to Dr. Zakir everything of that can be included in this talk, but time will not permit us.
The best example of Universal Brotherhood is hatch.
Where Allah commanded in the Glorious Quran that every adult Muslim who has the means and the health to perform. You should perform the pilgrimage to Hajj to Mecca in the month of hajj at least once in his lifetime.
It is the largest annual gathering of the world where about 4 million people except during COVID. It was reduced. But on average before COVID about three to 4 million people from all over the world from USA, from Canada from UK, from Pakistan, from India, from Oman, from different parts of the world. Black, white, yellow brown, they come and they're dressed up into pieces of unsewn white cloth. The men you cannot identify the person standing next to you is a king or a Papa. It's the best example of universal brotherhood.
When you attend
Hedge your life is transformed.
It's an example of what will happen on the day of Russia
to the book that tells you at least once in a lifetime perform hedge
this book becomes a global necessity
for going to Jannah
is given in another beautiful short Surah of the Quran Surah Al chapter number 103 was number 123 where Allah says, well, us
by the token of time
in in Santa Fe cause wearily man is in a state of loss isn't Kasara in the Levina Amanu except those who are faith while I'm in a solid hottie, those of righteous deed what's our cell Bill Hackard, the wasabi sub, those who invite people to truth and those who invite people to pitch them for Stevens, this surah of the Quran Surah Al Assad is telling that human being is in Las, except if your four criteria, the only human being who will attain salvation, who will attain paradise who will go to Jannah if they have the four basic criteria number one is the man having faith. Number two amila Salah had the righteous deed number three,
with also been hacked, during Dawa, and Islam and number four, what of us are the sovereigns, inviting people to patient in pursuance
may Allah be pleased with him.
May Allah have mercy on him.
He fears that if only the Surah Surah Al Assad was revealed, it would have been sufficient for the hedaya for the guidance of humanity.
Only the four verses only if the three verses of the Quran so there are several revealed according to Imam Shafi
may Allah have mercy on him, it would have been sufficient for the guidance of Manatee and when we analyze
you pick up any verse on the Quran.
These verses of the Quran will invariably fall in one of the four criteria the either it will be Eman, it will either be Amana salejaw, either
wasabi Sabra, this is the beauty of the Quran.
which is giving you Ryan
the path to salvation, the path to Jannah this book has to be a global necessity. Therefore I say the Quran is the global necessity because it is the instruction manual for humankind.
It is a global necessity because he says this life is a test for the hereafter. It's a global necessity because it shows you the purpose of your life to worship man but Allah subhanaw taala the Quran is a global necessity because it tells you the definition and how to identify our create and sustain Allah subhanaw taala the Quran is a global necessity because it shows your formula how to stay on the straight path by offering salah. The Quran is a global necessity because it shows your way how to eradicate poverty by giving the cause.
The Quran is a global necessity because it shows you a way
how to overhaul your body. How to attain Taqwa by fasting in the month of Ramadan. The Quran is the global necessity because
it shows you a practical way of universal brotherhood and understanding our Creator by performing Hajj.
The Quran is the global necessity because it shows you the path to salvation
the path to Jannah?
There are various reasons, hundreds or other 1000s
vi I would say the Quran the global necessity, time will not permit. I'm only giving you highlight not even scratching the surface and for each point they can be a lecture on to us.
The other important factor
that Quran is a global necessity is because
US is the solution for the problems of humankind. And I've given a talk
on Islam the solution for the problem of humankind.
Now, if you want to know how to solve a problem, suppose the machine
doesn't know it is malfunctioning, or the machine is spoiled, who is the best person who can solve the problem of the machine? Who is the best person
who can see to it that the machine functions back to normal? Who?
The Creator, the manufacturer, the inventor, the creator, the manufacturer, the inventor,
we Muslim call him as Allah for the best solution. For the problem though humanity can only be given by the creator of the human beings
that have Allah subhanaw taala.
And the Glorious Quran is the last and final revelation of the of Allah subhanaw taala. And I've given a talk is the Quran God's word proving
that the Quran is God's word. That again, is a two and a half hour lecture. That was one of my life longest lecture in any public gathering in Malaysia where the talk was for two and a half hours with question on fishing. It was for about six and a half hours. It started after showering until Fajr.
So the Quran
is the word of Allah subhanaw taala it's the best book that can give you solution. It has solution for the problem humankind it is solution.
Racism. Allah says in surah surah chapter 14 and was number 13. Yeah, are you a NASA in Nikola Conoco means acronym ensemble, Jana shell merkaba Illa, retired in October when the Lloyd Cockrum in the lower level hobby or humankind we have created you from a single pair of male and female and have divided you into nations and tribes so that you shall recognize each other not that you shall despise each other. From this verse of the Quran, Allah tells us we have been created from one single pair, we have come in great great grandparents.
And Allah has divided us into nations and tribes black and white, yellow and brown.
Not that you shall despise each other so that you shall recognize each other. And Allah says the criteria for judgment in the sight of Allah. It's not well, it's not color. It's not cast. It's not sex. It is tequila, it is righteousness, it is God consciousness. And despite the only way one human being can be superior to other is not by wealth, in the sight of Allah. It's not by age, it's not by color.
It is with Toccoa it is it God consciousness, it is piety. That the reason I say Quran is a global necessity.
It is open to everyone. Other the poor man will think that person is rich will be closer to Allah. Nor does Allah say rich man is closer. In fact, it's more difficult for a rich man to go to Jannah than a poor man. Allah says, our beloved partner Salah salem said, a rich man will be questioned more Did he give us a car? Did he do a duty a poor man knows like 100 out of 100 in that aspect, with a very bad me a poor man actually, in the question was like I think 800 100 Because he doesn't have to give zakat for the rich man. Some may give proper some maybe have some may not give it all.
So that is in a prophet said it is more difficult for rich man to enter Jannah than a poor man. So imagine this Quran has the solution to the problem of racism. The Quran has the solution to the problem of terrorism and murder. Allah says in surah Milea Shabnam privacy number 32. If anyone kills any other human being, whether you're Muslim or non Muslim, unless it be for murder, or for spreading corruption in the land, it is as though yes kill the whole of humanity.
There is no religious scripture I know of we save that if you kill one innocent human being, you have killed the whole of humanity and the Quran does not stop the Quran continues that if anyone says any other human being whether Muslim or non Muslim, it is as though your safe donation.
This is a solution for terrorism
and for murder, and the only thing Muslims are terrorists.
And after 911 There was a very famous scene against the Muslim
every Muslim is not a terrorist, but every terrorist to the
And in reply to that, in 2006, I gave a talk is terrorism a Muslim monopoly? And I've given statistics on terrorism who did the first hijack of the plane who did the first assassination? And in the last 50 years, 100 years what is noted you can google and search almost all I've been on Muslims. So where are you talking about?
So you should hear my talk is that it is a Muslim monopoly. Quran has the solution for the problem of terrorism,
but when they cannot prove the Quran wrong, so they say Quran promotes terrorism
when they cannot prove that you're wrong, Lucky neg wrong in India disease promoting terrorism.
I've been invited in India to give talks
in the academy in the police academy in Hyderabad many times, you know, all the IGP Inspector General, I used to give them talks on counterterrorism there in London, in many of the Gulf countries, many countries they call me to give talks on anti terrorism and now, the new government is laying allegation that I promote terrorism.
hamdulillah when the judge in India court says,
you know, when they wanted to attach all my properties to judge was the sick Manmohan Singh.
Unfortunately, he had seen many of my talks, he said to the lawyer of the government, you point out one statement of Dr. Zakir Naik in context in any lecture where he promoted them I will attach all his properties
the problem is.
I do not attack other religions, I use the formula of the Quran Tala will acclimate and survive in binary No Come Come to common terms as well as in you.
So, when I talk about similarities between Islam and Hinduism, Islam and Christianity, the people can digest it. People are coming close to the dean. When I talk about the Quran, which is the global necessity, they fall in love with the Quran.
Even today when I traveling, I've done Hijra from India to Malaysia. Seven years back when I meet non Muslims outside the Hindu, they say We apologize on behalf of my government. Can we take a selfie with you?
Some Muslim bigots can predict photo
with a non Muslim they wanted a photo with me talking about indeed.
So what they do when they cannot attack the Quran, they lay allegations against the Quran and I've given a talk on
Islam the solution to the problems of humanity and how they malign using media.
Time will not permit me to go in details.
But as I said Quran has the solution for terrorism and murder.
Quran has a solution to injustice and inequality.
Allah says in surah Nisa, Chapter Four was number 135. Yeah, you are living in harmony or you believe stand out false truth as witness to Allah subhanho wa taala. Even if the against yourself against your parents, against the rich or poor.
Allah says when you have to be witness,
always stand for truth even if it be against you.
Even if it be against your parents or your relatives,
even if it's against the rich and the poor.
When I read this verse, you know, in the beginning of my Dawa
Dawa life, I could understand the Quran saying it will be against yourself, okay, fine. If it's against your parents,
against the rich, what does Quran mean against the poor? Why would someone
Give falsehood for being against the poor again very Chevy benefited me give you money. The parents were benefited. What what is the Quran mean by saying against the poor? What does Allah mean? That for the Huck, you have to be on that irrespective rich or poor you cannot say, or the man is poor man, if I give it NIF against him, you lose his job, even if he's poor, you cannot, that did Allah's prerogative.
If you have to be witness, if you've done a crime, you have to give it against him. You cannot say I've seen him robbing but if I give witness he will lose his job. So I will give a false witness. So you have to be on the hook. Whether the person is rich or poor.
This will remove
the inequality and injustice.
Quran has the solution to the problem of alcoholism and drug addiction. Allah says in the Quran in surah Maya chapter five of summer 90 Ja you will live in harmony or you believe in number Camberwell? My true, most certainly toxic insane gambling,
Zabul, Islam, dedication of stones, divination of arrows, Russa Menominee shaitan these are Satan handiwork first anybody to flee who abstain from the handiwork that you will prosper.
You know my colleagues, they say alcoholism is a disease.
I say if it's a disease, it's the only disease that is sold in bottles.
If it's a disease, it is the only disease which has no viral or germ cause. If it's a disease, it is the only disease that advertised in the newspaper then channels. It is the only disease that gets the revenue for the government.
It's the only disease that causes while in debt from the highway. It's the only disease that disrupts the family. Allah gives the answer it's not a disease.
It's a central handiwork. Firstly, we'll look into fluid abstain from the handbag that may prosper. So Quran has the solution for the problem of alcoholism and drug addiction.
Imagine our beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Sallam 14 years ago
when he said in his words, and he said, I'll call it the more prevalent very common. The Sahaba has the emptied the drums of I'll call on the streets of Medina now to be filled again.
Who can do that? America tried decades earlier, to stop alcohol they could not they cannot prevent.
It is our Creator who tells you
how to solve your problems. Therefore I see Quran is the global necessity. It is the only book which has the solution for the problem of alcoholism and drug addiction.
Quran has the solution for prostitution for fornication or adultery. Allah says in the Quran in surah surah chapter number 17 Verse number 31. Come not close to it, for it is an evil opening other road to evil.
Zina even evil opening other rules to evil
has a solution for the immodesty for the nudity for the pornography.
Quran prescribe the system of hijab.
Normally people's love for hijab for the female, Allah Forestburg for the job for the male in the Quran, then for the female. Allah says in surah chapter number 24 was permitted to say to the believing man that he should lower if gay that God is modesty. Whenever a man looks at a woman in any breathing, thought, any unashamed outcome in his mind, you should always give.
Once there was a young Muslim who was staring at a girl for a long time, I said, Brother, what are you doing? It's not allowed in Islam. He told me a beloved Prophet said the first grandson is allowed. The second is prohibited. I've not completed half my clans.
What did the Prophet mean when he said the first glance is for is forgiven, the second is forbidden. That means he meant if you by mistake, look at a woman law, your gift it forgiven. That doesn't look instead a woman without blinking for 10 minutes and saying I have not completed my glands
that nest was speaks about the hijab. For the woman. Allah says in surah chapter number 24 was number 31 said the believing woman that she should lower together and gather modesty and display not the beauty except what appears ordinary have and draw her well over the bosom except in front of her father, her sons or husband and a big list of minimum is given.
And the criteria for a job is given more in detail. In the other words Lasota adopt chapter 13 and chapter 33 was 59 and in addition of the profit that are based
66 criteria for a job. The first is that the complete body
should be covered the extent for the man it from the navel to the knee, for the woman, the complete body should be covered except the hands, the face and hands up to the wrist, some people save in the face should be covered.
is the clothes should not be so tight fitting, it reveals the figure. Third, it should not be translucent or transparent, so that you can see through fourth, it should not be glamorous so that it attracts the opposite sex. Fifth, it should not resemble that of the opposite sex, and six, it should not disable that of the unbeliever. These are basically six criteria for them.
And always give the example
that if there are
two twin sisters, who are very beautiful, equally beautiful, if they're walking down the streets of musket. One is wearing the Islamic hijab complete body covered except the face and handed up tradition. And the other twin sister she's made the western clothes, maybe low neck skirt.
And if around the corner, there is a hooligan waiting for a catch. Who's Vayner diva girl. I know in Oman, it's very rare. It's more common in the Western world.
Because the law is strict.
But if a person is very intuitive, a girl waiting for catch which girl realities really teach the girl very in Islamic hijab? Or will it? Is the girl wearing the western clothes?
Who will it is?
Western clothes, you don't have to be a scholar for that. It's a simple question. You don't even have what
you invite, and you get it
once in the way, when I was giving a talk
in Dubai, maybe a few years back, an audience of about 30,000 people, one non Muslim girl during question answer time, she came and said Dr. Zakir, I've heard your talk. And you said giving the example of twin sister who will teach according to me, the person wearing the Islamic hijab will be teased. You know why? Because the person next would like to know what is behind the clothes.
And my daughter in the audience said Now a by strep. My daughter says because you don't you don't expect this. We know if any logical answer, but they shouldn't be trained. They should be trained in how to reply illogical questions.
So I got up and I said that sister asked a question. I don't agree with her answer. I don't agree with her reply. She said that the girl in the hijab would be these because they would like to know what is behind the clothes. I don't like it. But if you really agree with the answer, then why she very close.
She should remove that loads. And she was embarrassed. The battle was one. I told her if you believe
I've been in the field of Dawa for mashallah more than 30 years. This is the first time after 2325 years, somebody posing me this question. I was shocked. But Allah helps us.
So, she was so embarrassed that she walked away because she knew she knew she was asking a giving wrong reply, as if you really believe in the value and includes the repetition.
So Islam has the solution to the problem of nudity, the problem of pornography, the problem of sanity. Today we have in most of the ads you have ladies why?
For motorcycle you have an ad for cardio vanity, how many? How many ladies a motorcycle person
they want to sell our daughters. They want to sell our mothers in a very famous ad I was told in the in a very famous BMW AD, the lady who's standing in front of the car in the beginning, and the average test diver now
Who's the girl of the car?
What is the Western world doing? They're selling our daughters. They're selling their mothers. They're selling the sisters Islam prohibits
