Good evening to doctors, I can everybody present here? Before I say anything, I just want to say that what am I asking? I do not mean any disrespect to anybody and to anyone. I'm a very young person. So please excuse me if I say anything inappropriate. My question is, since as SR I was heard and no, I've seen around me that Islam does not believe in idol worship. So I want to know, what are the reasons for non believing idol worship? That's my first question.

00:00:34 --> 00:01:01

That was the question that as far as he believes that Islam does not believe in idol worship, why Islam doesn't believe in idol worship. The reason Islam doesn't believe idol worship because it is prohibited. Point number one, you cannot make idol of God, the moment you make an idol of God or degrading God. Imagine you make idol. And suppose idol falls. What happens with idle idle breaks? If the idle cannot help itself? How can it help me?

00:01:03 --> 00:01:04


00:01:05 --> 00:01:17

but my main point here is that if there's an idol of God, it might not be the actual, actual God that that actually exists. But if it helps me in focusing my worship towards him, if it helps me in actually

00:01:19 --> 00:01:58

increasing my focus when I'm actually praying to him, don't you think it is correct? Brother said that if that idol helps me focusing God is indeed good for him. But when God says, don't make an idol of me, and they do tell me it helps me in focusing on God, is it right or is it wrong? If you love God, will you obey God or not? If you love God have to obey Him. Suppose you're working in a company, and the boss tells you, the boss tells you that come on time. You have to come at 10 o'clock sharp is a no effect on 11 o'clock, I will sleep I'll be more fresh. I recommend level knocker either right or wrong. That's wrong. Then some people come at 10 Some people live in some

00:01:58 --> 00:02:11

people 12 No, no, but you know, I know I can work better some people come at one o'clock some people come at two o'clock. Do you think the company will function correctly? No, I love my boss very much. The boss says come on time. 10 o'clock Miss 10 o'clock.

00:02:12 --> 00:02:52

If you don't love your boss, then you may come late and maybe right in the register. I've come on time that's cheating. So God has clearly mentioned in the Quran that idol worship is prohibited. even mentioned in the New scripture. Clearly it say that I mentioned earlier in cetera cetera Upanishad chapter number four, verse number 19. In graduate, chapter 30, verse number three, notice about the majesty of that God there is no prathima there is no image there is no photograph, there is no painting. There is no portrait, there is no idle. There is no sculpture. There is no statue. When God is saying there is no statue no sculptor, you say no, no, to concentrate, I require God.

00:02:53 --> 00:03:16

These who say that they do pundit when I speak to the pundit that is clearly mentioned the way that idol worship is wrong, what they say no, no, initially when you're in the initial stages, at the lower level, you require idol to concentrate. When you read the higher stage higher consciousness idol is not required. So I tell the new pundit, the Muslim, they've already reached the higher consciousness.

00:03:19 --> 00:03:19


00:03:21 --> 00:03:50

sir, but if it has helped me helping me in any way, why would God say that do not do it because the degrading God, I must be your boss comes at 10 o'clock, not helping me if I come at 11 o'clock, I'm feeling happy. So the boss will tell you, if it's helping you get out of this company, go and join some other company. Someone comes at 10 Someone loving someone 12 You employ you to come at 10 o'clock. I mean, employer says, I will come at 12 o'clock. I feel happy. I feel good about it. I'm praising you very good boss. Will you like it?

00:03:51 --> 00:04:28

Everyday says My boss is very good. My boss is very good enough as we know rosary. My boss is very good. Other employee comes at two o'clock in the afternoon. My boss is very good. My boss is very good. The boss will say bye. You stop breathing, you come on time and do your work rather than praising me. So your God, your Creator has told you in your scripture into Scripture in the Christian scripture in the Muslim scripture. Don't make idle your degrading God God is so powerful, or making idle out of and who makes it idle? Who makes it human being so God will tell I've created the human beings not the human beings are creating me What nonsense it is.

00:04:30 --> 00:04:59

So when God is telling you don't require idle concentrate on God without idle so we're not creating God when we're making an idle and and I think that we're not degrading him when we make an idle it's just that if you make a form of him and and assume it's it's, there's a part of him even if it is not that what is mentioned in your Vedas, sir, I am I'm not an angel. So I do not believe in debaters. What are you Are you Christian? Sarah Jane. Jane. Jane believe in God. Yesterday doo doo

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

no genuine studio God told me. So Lord Mahavira he that threatened guy He's not God. You don't know your genuine said I might not know not knowing atheistic religion. Generally them with an atheistic religion you're mixing Hinduism, Jainism. So I claim that I'm not an intrusion. I know you're not a Hindu but if you're a Jain and you're saying Mojave is God way that mentioned in your Jain scripture, Mojave is God, either through Tonga Yes, sir, he's not God. So but then we worship him and all the other things, but He is not God.

00:05:37 --> 00:05:38

Did Mojave desert you should worship Him.

00:05:40 --> 00:06:03

And like that has not led to don't know that. I'm telling you. You don't know what Mojave said. And you're saying Mojave still Tonga is indeed your duty there. You should find out what Mahavira said. Yes, sir. It is. So that means you're a logical person. Sir. When you join a company, don't you follow the rules and regulation of the company? Yes, sir. Jainism is an atheistic religion.

00:06:04 --> 00:06:30

So they will believe that someone who comes in life, dying birth, birth, that birth that if you're free from the cycle, when you don't have any negative or positive, you get Nirvana Moksha there are 24 people who have attained Moksha according to journalism, and Marvin is the 24th in Tonga? Yes, sir. 24th Yes, he's not God.

00:06:31 --> 00:07:12

So that when you don't know you're married, you don't know generalism. So how can I talk to you about Yes, sir. I'm not talking here that so what I'm asking is that if is idol worship? So what you're telling me is that what because it's really mentioned in the Quran that I didn't worship is wrong. mentioned, mentioned in Bible. No, it was mentioned in Quran mentioning Bible mentioned in the scriptures that I do worship is wrong. So where do you get this philosophy from? Sir? My saying My point is that we are assuming that if Quran is actually what God has taught, so that means that that's why idol worship is wrong. If I say that, if I argue that mate might be a pointless argument,

00:07:12 --> 00:07:46

but if I argue that Quran is not the word, the words of God, then what is the what is the actual logic that why idol worship very good. So what is the word of God? You have to tell me if Quran is not the word of God then which is the word of God? I do not know that I don't know. I know nursery follow me. If you don't know you ask a teacher or student tells the teacher two plus two is not equal to four teachers. What is it? I don't know, sir. But if I'm not convinced of the answers, we're not that the reason did you hear my earlier answer? Have you seen my tapes? No, sir. This is the first time attending you find like have you heard the earlier answer? We just spoke to an

00:07:46 --> 00:08:04

atheist about science. Are you paying attention? So maybe I was not present in the whole time I'm getting you which is that if you're not available, what I request you you go and see my video cassette is the Quran God's word, my DVD, can you give me the name is the Quran God's word
