My name is Krishna Rao. I am working as a general manager abroad. Luckily today, one of my fortunately with I've come here with one of my friend who has brought me here today. In fact, Dr. Zaki, I have seen him on TV. And always I had, I mean, this is a great opportunity that has God has given me to see him personally. And ask a question which always I had a doubt in my life.
That why God didn't create one religion, or he didn't make one religion for everybody. So that piece would have been prevailed on this earth. He knew it, or he never knew about it, that these are the problems which are going to be faced whether that's a very good question, very important question. Why did not God create only one religion? Why did he create all the different religions? So there have been no conversion, no fighting? And I agree with him? It's a very good question.
And if read the Quran,
Allah says in the Quran in surah Al Imran Chapter number three was some 19. In the Drina, in the wireless alarm, the only reason acceptable in the sight of Allah as Islam. Islam means submitting a will to Almighty God. So if you read all the religions, Almighty God only sent messengers to preach one diligent all the messages that came right from Adam, peace be upon him, right down. No, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, peace be upon them all, all the prophets. And our beloved Prophet said they were 124,000 messengers sent on the face of the earth. And it mentioned the Quran in surah Fatah chapter 35, verse 24, amen. Oh, Manila, hello Aviana zero, there is not a niche or a tribe to whom we have
not sent a bond or a guide. Allah says in surah, Rajasthan Muthoni Muslimah seven, when equally common heart and to every people have you send Ivana now all the messenger that came brother, they taught nothing, but submitting devil to Almighty God. And the basic message that all these messengers taught oneness of God. He did not beget you have got no mother, you have got no father. He's only one. They're nothing like him. But due to passage of time, all what the messenger's preached, it got corrupted. And if you heard my talk, I mentioned that most of the scripture that came before the Quran, they got changed.
And Allah says in the Quran, in several places, if he wanted, he could have made every one submitted to God, every one Muslim, see Muslim Brother, don't take it as a religion. The real meaning of Islam is it's a deen, it's a way of life, submitting your will to God. And Muslim doesn't mean a person who has a name Zakir Abdullah Sultan. Muslim means a person who submits a bill to God. If you submit your will to God in Arabic, I will call you as a Muslim to don't go on the labels given Suzanne Zakir Abdulla, Muslim and Arabic means a person who submit his will to God, anyone who submits a meal to God, he is called as a Muslim. So all the messenger that came, they taught that we have to
submit a will to God all of them taught monotheism, all taught to heat, but by the passage of time, all these scriptures kept on changing. And that is the reason Almighty God He sent the last and final message the Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. And the last and final revelation Glorious Quran. Now all the messengers that came before Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, all the revelation that came before the Quran, they were only meant for those people and for that time, by name for mentioning the Quran, Torah, the Blue Angel and the Quran, Torah is Avahi the revelation was given to Moses peace be upon him. The Buddha is over here the revelation given to David peace be
upon him in the lives of His revelation given to Jesus QSP is upon him. And Quran is the last and final revelation given to the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. But Quran also says in Surah, Rod chapter 13, verse number 38, it says, the coolie agent kitab. In every age have within the revelation, there were several revolutions unknown, but all the revelation that came before the Quran, and all the messengers that came before Prophet Muhammad, they were sent only for those people and for that time, that there is an almighty God did not think it fit to preserve it. But since Quran is the last and final revelation not only sent for the Muslims or the Arabs, it is
sent for all of humanity and Prophet Muhammad. He is not sent only for the Muslim of Arabs, he has been sent for all of humanity. That is the reason he has been prophesied in all the major religious scriptures.
And this book, the Quran, Allah says in surah chapter number 15 was feminine. We have revealed the Quran and we shall guarded from corruption. So what we realize that Almighty God sent messengers to preach only one diligent that is
Submitting your will to Almighty God in Arabic. I say Islam. Jesus Christ never came to preach Christianity. The word Christianity doesn't exist in the Bible. Do you know that?
In the full Bible, the word Christian is not there. He didn't preach the shanty. The word Christian was a nickname given to the followers of Jesus at Antioch mentioned the book of Acts. Nickname for Jesus Christ preached Islam. It's mentioned the Gospel of John chapter five verse number 30. GSSP said that not my will, but my father's will.
God's will in Arabic, he preached nothing but Islam.
Similarly, if Geeta, she Christian said that you have to submit a will to God, he founds in Arabic he says that you have to accept Islam.
But what we realize that all the messengers taught nothing but submitting a will to God. That is the reason the Quran says in Solon branch, chapter three, verse number 19. In Deena in the LAL Islam, the only way of life accepted in the sight of God is submitting a will to Almighty God. So what we have to go back to the origin scriptures, go back to the commandment of Almighty God and submit your will the commandment of God and then you will be following the straight path of them. So the question well
