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

The first question is

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

from a non Muslim

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

he think Peace be upon you. My name is Abraham from New Delhi. The question if when people revert back to Islam, like Cassius Clay,

00:00:21--> 00:00:24

Sonny Bill Williams, and Mike Tyson

00:00:26--> 00:01:15

and many more. So Muslims said that God gave them guidance hedaya So that's why they reverted. I wanted to know why he God didn't give guidance to everyone. Why he gave guidance to some people and not to all and this is a very important question by Abra. Abraham, Allah says, in the Glorious Quran, in Surah Yunus chapter number 10, was from 99, that if he wanted, he could have made all the human beings in this world as believers. So for Allah to make 100% of the human beings now there are more than 7.7 5 billion human beings for Allah to make all the human beings as believers as Muslim is very economical. But the question is, that we human beings are one of the best creations of Allah

00:01:15--> 00:02:00

subhanaw taala and Allah says in the Quran in surah multitap number 67 was number two under the cultural motto al Hatta, it is he was created that and life to test which of us good indeed. So, this life is a test for the hereafter. So, when you are coming in coming for a test for an examination, the supervisor cannot help you. And even if you do something wrong can person I mean supervisor can, can, can feed that you don't, that you don't break the rules, the teacher can give you grace marks, but cannot pass you if you have failed and did not write anything or broke all the rules. So in the same fashion, regarding the question, if Allah wanted you could omit all the human

00:02:00--> 00:02:35

being the Muslim but then what is the difference? All the declaration of Allah subhanaw taala except the Jinda and human beings, they obey Him. So what difference is in the creation of human beings? Regarding Why does he select few people, there are some criteria for Allah to select who he guides. Allah says in the Quran surah and booth chapter number 29 was 269. That if you strive in the pathway of Allah subhanaw taala he will open up your pathways that means anyone whether Muslim or non Muslim, if he strived if he struggles,

00:02:36--> 00:03:13

in the path of Almighty God, Allah subhanaw taala he will open up the path with all these people, whether it be cash is clear, whether it be Mike Tyson, whether it whether it be cashed even if you read the history, when when they were not Muslim, they strive like you if you hear the story, the background of cash even with a pop singer, now with colleagues of Islam, when his life was in danger, he said that if if you saved my life, oh my god, I will dedicate my life towards you. And then someone gives me a copy of the Quran. He read the Quran and he came close to Islam. So if you strive irrespective whether you're a Christian or a Hindu, or a non Muslim, if we sincerely strive

00:03:13--> 00:03:46

to come close to Allah subhanaw taala you will come close to Almighty God Allah subhanaw taala. So the only criteria required for you striving and struggling that I want to find the true Almighty God and follow His commandments. Inshallah, Allah will get to closer whether you will read the Quran come close to Allah, whether you will hear the lecture for diet come close to Allah, you may attend the event you may hear the adhan, the main criteria is you strive to conclude that Almighty God and inshallah Allah will give you that. Hope that answers the question.
