came from Nagpur. I want to ask you one question about Vedas, because I believe we that's our main structure of Hinduism. So, I want to know if you are telling or putting a common point which is similar to other scripture, why you do not put different points in front of non Muslim people, which are contradict double or which are opposite to each other because I believe in common point as being a Hindu girl, it is very important to know which are the common point and which are the different points in Hinduism scriptures. Sister was asked a very good question. She said that accorded the Veda I did point out similarities. Why don't I speak about differences? And she wants to know the
similarities or differences sister.
If I can give a talk on similarities between Islam and Hinduism for a few hours, I can give a bigger talk and a longer talk on differences between Islam and Hinduism. But the reason I chose to speak about similarities because that is the advice given by my Creator Allah subhana wa Taala in the Quran in surah. Al Imran Chapter number three was number 54. He says cool, yeah, hello kita co People of the Book, tallow Illa Kelly Mateen Sava embarr. Amina come come to common terms as well as a new which is the first term Alana the il Allah that we worship none but Allah will Anushka be che yo that we associate no partners with him while I Teresa than Alibaba, Mindy Nila that we erect not
among ourselves loads and pages other than Allah for interval law. If then they turn back Felicia do say a bear witness be a non Muslim moon, that we are Muslims by having a will to Allah subhanaw taala. This was of the Quran shows as a way how to speak with different kinds of people come to common terms as the US and EU, which is the first term, the most important term is a law now with the Ilala that we worship, none but one Almighty God. Regarding differences, sister, I can give a talk together about differences. Not that I can't. But it will bring animosity, maybe it will hurt the feelings of someone that we may be forced to do during a debate. When they're the debate. For
example, I had a debate with a person by the name of Dr. William Campbell.
If you heard the talk system, yeah, I've seen your videos. So that talk was talking about differences between Christianity and Islam. Why you wrote a book saying there are 30 scientific errors in the Quran. And for eight years, no Muslim replied in USA and became a hot seller. So the students who have us, they call me and we had a dialogue with the topic was Quran and Bible in the light of science, whatever allegations you had against the Quran, I replied to all I post 38 points from the Bible, which is against science. He could not apply to any.
So in that debate, I may have to do that. If I have a debate with the Hindus, Carlos says that way, the other completely makes sense.
So then I can talk about the unscientific things. But if I talk about differences, maybe you may feel offended. So if you want to go on a higher level, surely, you can ask where he's at IRF will give you all the things but in public, I personally don't want to talk about contradiction, unless someone forces me not that we aren't aware. But if you know the similarity, what I'm telling you let us agree to follow what is common.
For what I tell the people what is common in the Vedas, in the Bible, in the Quran. Let everyone agree that at least one book is the word of God. Hindus will say whether the Word of God, Christian will say Bible is the Word of God. Muslim will say the Quran is the word of God. I tell them a thing which everyone would in mind agree, let us agree to follow what is common for when you follow the commonality in the Vedas in the Bible, in the Jewish Scriptures Talmud, in the Quran, we find all the scripture says there's one God, all the scripture says the last and final messenger Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. So I am asking you, Sister, why don't you believe in one God? I want to
ask you the question. He says that beautifully. There's one god I believe in one God, do you believe? And do you believe that the last and final messenger of Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him? Just because I'm asking you the question because it is very difficult to understand Quran and Vedas. And I'm so much confused which scripture is more important for me to achieve that to the god? I mean to worship? Have you heard my lecture on similarities between Islam and Hinduism? Or mama Salah Salem in the Hindu scriptures? Have you heard that? Yeah. Do you know that your Scripture say that the last and final messenger Prophet moments will be upon him? Yeah. Do you know that? Yeah. So do
you believe Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger of God? Yeah, definitely. Do you believe? Yeah. So if you believe there's one God and you believe that idol worship is prohibited
And if you believe that Prophet Mohammed is the last messenger in Arabic, we call you as a Muslim.
Mr. Do you believe in one God? Yeah, I believe in one. Do you believe that no idol worship?
Do you believe that Almighty God has got no images? Yeah, you believe that? Yeah. And you also believe that Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger of God. So what you have entered, you may not have gone very high, but by saying that there is no God, but Allah and Prophet Muhammad is the messenger, you indirectly become a Muslim means a person who submits his will to God. So do you submit that I'm indirectly Muslim? No way does telling the same thing and Quran telling the same thing. So which, if you're indirect also no problem. Indirect also most welcome by their come direct or indirect, we welcome you, sister.
Now, you know what is coming. Now if your VEDA says that the last and final messengers, Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, and you have to follow him, so by following Prophet Muhammad, you're indirectly following the Vedas also.
Then you have to find out What did Prophet Muhammad say? Then you have to read the Hadith. But slowly, slowly, so now your nursery then Jr. kg, then SR kg then first and then your dish and a 10. But have you taken admission? I want to know that Do you agree that you're a Muslim?
Muslim means a person who submits his or her will to God, why it is important that the person who believing in one God is called or she is called a Muslim? Yes. Why? Muslim means a person who submits a will to God. And the first important creed to submit your will to God is believed there's one God believe there is no idol worship, and believe Prophet Mohammed is a messenger. If you say this, that means you have agreed to submit and then it takes time, then we'll go to standard one, then slowly you may know what is required about fasting about charity not to rob not to see all this come late. But do you agree to submit your videos important? And do you agree to follow the
teachings of Prophet Muhammad is important for him to ask your sister? Yeah, I agree. So would you like to say the shahada shahada me would you like to say in Arabic that there is no god but one God and Prophet Muhammad is the messenger?
Yeah, dad is a one God and
last Prophet, Mashallah. MashAllah sister evaluation. I will just say it in Arabic and I wanted to repeat it. You know what, you have said the same thing. But I want to ask your sister is anyone forcing you to say this? No, no, they're not putting pressure. No, it's completely free will? Yeah. Okay. If it gets repeated, I shall do.
I should do Allah. Allah, Allah, Allah, Allah Allah, Allah Allah wa shall do, though I should do or nah. anna muhammadan Muhammadan up do I do what?
I bear witness.
I bear witness. I bear witness that there is no God, that there is no God but Allah, but Allah and Prophet Muhammad and Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him please be upon him is the servant is the servant and messenger of Allah and messenger of Allah, masha Allah.
I congratulate sister. Now we have entered the fall of Islam and insha Allah for getting more knowledge for going to first and second standard third standard, be in touch with the Sisters of the Islamic Research Foundation, and it will be a pleasure to guide you. And if you have any queries regarding Quran regarding Islam, you're most welcome to ask if you have any queries even regarding Hinduism, et cetera most welcome sister and I pray to Allah subhanaw taala that Megan to Jana sister
