The first question
is, the person says one atom, one atom
is the Tamil word, which means hello, and hello to YouTube.
I believe the person is the Tamil is asking the question. And he writes, wasn't here. I'm a Hindu, residing in Bahrain, I am reading and getting knowledge about Islam for some time. But slowly, day by day,
can you please tell top five aspects of Islam, which can inspire non Muslims, apart from the five pillars, as I'm aware of them? Basically, the brother wants to know the top five
points that inspire non Muslim to become Muslim. Get them closer to Islam, besides the five pillars, and let me tell you that the major points that inspire a non Muslim towards Islam are the five pillars. I briefly mentioned some of the points of the five pillars and then come on to the other five important points besides the five pillars. According to me, the number one point that inspires non Muslims towards Islam is tawheed. It is oneness of Allah subhanaw taala, and the concept of God in our last month, but it is unique, unlike other religions, the concept that there is only one God
and that we worship no one else besides Him alone, and he's all powerful. He doesn't have any associates, he doesn't have any partners, this concept of not merely monotheism tawheed, that you worship Him alone, and no one is it really impressive, the non Muslim and the definition of Allah subhanaw taala. I've given it brief in Surah class, Chapter 112 was number one before we save full holla. See, he's allowed in only allow summit, Allah, the absolute internal laminar turbulent, he gets not noisy forgotten, while I'm here.
And there is nothing like him. This two day class, in short, is the touchstone of theology, giving the definition of Allah subhanaw taala In brief, and it makes it completely different than the other concepts of God. Whereas if you see in other religions, God can be defeated. God has got son God has got wife, the wife gets abducted, the God can be killed. So all these are not the true concept of Allah subhanaw taala number one is for him. Number two,
is the second pillar of Islam that is Allah, that when a person of a Salah, he gets closer to Allah subhanaw taala is better than any meditation, it gives you peace of mind, it gets to serenity. And it demonstrates the best example of universal breath out. And when the Muslim men when we stand for salein congregation, we stand shoulder to shoulder and feet two feet, irrespective whether the person next to you is a king, or a popper, whether it's black or white, we stand shoulder to shoulder it demonstrates the best example of universal brotherhood five times everyday.
I'm just mentioning some of the salient features of all the five pillars which attract or non Muslim. Number three, it is a sucker, that every rich person who has a theory
of more than the nisab level 85 grams of gold should give 2.5%
as a cut, as obligate to charity, to the eight categories, the poor, the masakan, etc. and here the people feel the closeness and as Allah says in Surah hucha chapter 59 Muslim seven, Zakat prevents the wealth from circulating only amongst the rich, it gets a closeness between the rich and the poor. So this aspect attracts a non Muslim.
The fourth pillar is fasting in the Psalm. And we mentioned all the object of the fasting, all these objectives get a person closer to snap. The fifth pillar
is such a predicament. Anyone who has the means and the health
and the wealth to perform has to do it once in a lifetime. And HUD is the best example of annual universal printout where more than 4 million people from all over the world from different parts of the world from Saudi Arabia from India from Pakistan from Bangladesh from UK from USA, from Singapore from Malaysia from Indonesia, they gather and the men that desktop in two pieces of white cloth unsewn and they only come and sell a baker llama Bay. Here we come at the service of the Lord. So they show the newest bread out. It shows the equality of all the human beings all desktop into pieces of white unsold cloth. This demonstration of brotherhood impresses the non Muslim. This was
just in brief about some of the salient features we can give a talk for several hours in reply to this question, the important points that attract a non Muslim toward Islam. Now, coming to the
The main question, what are the five top important points besides the five pillars, which attract a non Muslim toward Islam? Number one besides the Bible, according to me, it is the Quran. The Glorious Quran is the last and final revelation of Allah subhanaw taala we will do the last and final messenger, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. The Quran is the ultimate miracle. It's a miracle of miracles. And anyone who read the Quran, even the translation if it is a good translation, it brings tears to his eyes, he realizes the beauty of life he realizes the purpose of creation, he understands Allah subhanaw taala he understands the dean, only giving the translation a
good translation of the Glorious Quran to a non Muslim, it will do wonders. It is one of the major factors besides the five pillars, which attracts a non Muslim toward Islam. It's unlike any other book in the world unlike any other scriptures. Number two besides the five pillars, it is Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him and appointed Michael charts. homos, Allah salam,
in his book of 100 most influential people in the world from Adam, peace be upon him till today. Number one, he places being a non Muslim, His Prophet, muscles Salah, if you read the seed of the Prophet, as the Quran, it says insert a column chapter number 16 was number four, that thou art tended on the highest standard of character. That means the character of the Prophet is so superior, it is the best standard. And I'll repeat the message in sort of a sub chapter number 33 was number 21. That very early in the Messenger of Allah in Providence, hello Salaam, you will find the most beautiful pattern of conduct, his conduct his lifestyle, his behavior was their example so much so
that even his enemies could not deny calling him Allah mean the trustworthy, the honest person, they respected him. So if you read the seed of the Prophet, there are high chances that if a non Muslim reads with an unbiased mind, though there are 1000s of books written against the Prophet, but if you read the Sierra, you will find that he was the best example. Best exemplary human being that Allah has sent on the face of the earth.
top reason besides the five pillar that a non Muslim, accept Islam and get attracted is the concept of life after death.
That is believing that is life after death. Because when you look around us, there is so much of wrongs happening, there's so much of criminals, so much of injustice being done. And you wonder, how is Allah subhanaw taala allowing this injustice even not capable of stopping it? Allah gives the reply in chapter three, verse number 185, that every fool shall have a taste of death, and the final recompense will be on the Day of Judgment.
And this life is the meal amusement, if you enter Jannah, you have achieved the objective of this life. Because this life is just mere tools
of deception. Do we know that the final recompense is worthy of that, but imagine, if you have to think of Hitler, the person who we know who has killed the maximum number of human beings in the world? History tells us 6 million, even if you catch it today, what management can you give him? Maybe that that will compensate for one What about the remaining 5,999,919 and human being just killed?
The only replied to this is Allah will give him
the final punishment of the Day of Judgment. Allah says in the Quran in surah, Chapter 456, that as to those who reject our signs, we will cast them into the hellfire. And as often as the skins are roasted, we shall give them fresh skin to that they shall feel the pain that means in the next life.
And today, we have come to know that the feeling of pain, it's based on the pain receptors which are present in the skin.
So if your skin is burned, and the pain receptors are destroyed, you cannot feel the pain. And that's what happened in this life a person has 100% bone injury and his pain disrupters have been destroyed, you cannot feel pain. But on the day of the admin Alessi as often as your skin roasted, we shall give you fresh skin so that we shall feel the pain. That means if Allah wants to incinerate burn Hitler 6 million times 10 million times 12 million times we can do it. We can give him such a punishment in this life. So there has to be a life after death for justice in this world. And the fourth point
that attracts the person beside to the five pillars of Islam is that this life that we are leading is a test for the hereafter. Allah says in the Quran in surah mulk chapter number 16 was number two, allegedly clinical more
or less treated death and life to test which of us best deeds. This life is a test for us for the hereafter. Many of the questions that we ask that how are millions of people dying of hunger, there's so much of it.
It can't Allah subhanaw taala give them food and Almighty God, there are so many people dying in diseases, the dying in earthquakes. What is the reason? The reason is this life is a test for the hereafter. Allah subhanaw taala test different people with different things some people test with Well, some people report it some people help some people with diseases and Allah says in the Quran in surah baqarah chapter number two was number 155. That, do you think Allah will not test you before you go to Gen X to test Allah says, we will test you with hunger or with fear of life
or with the property that we have acquired. And lab test two different ways. And the fifth reason
that takes a person besides the five pillars, it is the repentance
that the concept of repentance of taba in Islam, that irrespective however many sins you do, you may do a sin as big as the mountain strutting the sky. You miss in the whole the whole night. But if you truly repent, and you ask forgiveness in Islam, Allah will forgive anything even you have done the worst of the sin. So this gives a hope to a human being that now he's bad and now he reads a book he knows about religion. So can he turn into a new leaf very well he can. He may be the worst human being in the world. If we sincerely repents, and he asked for forgiveness. He does Toba inshallah, Allah will forgive him and the beauty of Islam is if a person who was a non Muslim, the big sin he
does and after it depends, the bigger the thing he leaves, the bigger everybody can imagine if a person is the biggest sin anything's Okay, and if I accept Islam, all my sins will get converted to the good deeds. Mashallah.
So these are the five points that I can think of the top priority besides the five pillars of Islam. So hope this answer is very, very fun. So you can be for us on this. But because it's a question answer session, I don't want to spend more time because there was a non Muslim asking a question. I gave a reply in more detail.
