00:03:51--> 00:04:02

Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa barakato. On behalf of the organizers, by summit media, together with Sandra Phaedra, and Islamic outreach, our beam

00:04:04--> 00:04:11

and our kind sponsors remarkable malicious Indian berhad. I'd like to welcome you to tonight's talk

00:04:12--> 00:04:20

by our distinguished speaker, Dr. Zakir recurring knight who is the president of

00:04:21--> 00:04:24

Islamic Research Foundation, Mumbai, India.

00:04:25--> 00:04:29

He is known as the walking computer on

00:04:30--> 00:04:33

not just the Quran, but as we found out today

00:04:35--> 00:04:37

at IU is also

00:04:38--> 00:04:45

complete for the other scriptures too. He can quote from so many scriptures.

00:04:47--> 00:04:50

You wonder what's the megabytes of his

00:04:51--> 00:04:52

brain

00:04:53--> 00:04:59

and even my computer cannot access when I press the button as quickly as he can access his computer.

00:05:00--> 00:05:20

Well hamdulillah that is the glory, the power of God if he wishes to create among his beings, those who have special abilities. And Dr. Zakir is one of those blessed by almost matana as the president of the Islamic Research Foundation based in Mumbai, India, which is a very active

00:05:22--> 00:05:33

organization started by itself, and helped by his brother and also another fellow doctor, who will be one of the teachers on Sunday for the training program.

00:05:35--> 00:05:56

And internationally active. As you can see, they have produced many videotapes. And apparently, in Mumbai, they have a three hour cable TV program everyday to the 16 million population of Mumbai. And something to be proud of,

00:05:57--> 00:06:14

that we, and other people around the world should emulate in trying to propagate Islam. He has been to many, many countries and delivered hundreds of talks. And this is his second visit here. He was here about three years ago. And I'm sure this will not be the last

00:06:15--> 00:06:20

visit all the time he is here. I am amazed at the pace that he goes through.

00:06:21--> 00:06:35

We have had a series of talks, and tonight's topic, as you can see on the board, is why the West is coming to Islam. As you are well aware that over the last decade, especially in Europe, Islam

00:06:37--> 00:07:28

is virtually overrunning the place. In the UK, hundreds of churches have been sold over to Muslims to make mosque. Same thing in Germany a few years back, I read that the church, the churches, they are worried because they don't have many people coming to church where they used to collect money, and they now do not have enough money to survive. Most of the churches are now turned into a community halls and likewise and Islam is burgeoning in Germany and the countries around them. And in America, you will well know that Islam is already the third largest religion after Christianity and Judaism. What's more, is that among the African Americans or the colored people, Islam is is

00:07:28--> 00:07:40

becoming a very popular before we hear Dr. Zakir I'd like to invite our special query all the way from Japan

00:07:41--> 00:07:42

00:07:43--> 00:07:46

some verses of grunts Ram majda

00:07:47--> 00:07:55

Curses were pronounced on those among the children of Israel who rejected faith, by the tongue of David. And oh Jesus, the son of Mary, because they disobeyed and persisted in excesses, nor did they forbid one another. The iniquities which they committed evil indeed, with the deeds which the deed

00:13:03--> 00:13:49

thou sees many of them turning in friendship, to the unbelievers. Evil indeed, other words which their souls have sent forward, before them, that are lost wrath is on them, and in torment, will they abide? If only they had believed in Allah and the Prophet? And in what has been revealed to them? Never would they have taken them for friends and protectors, but most of them are rebellious wrongdoers, strongest among men in enmity to the believers, who they'll find the Jews and the pagans, and nearest among them in love to the believers who they'll find those who say, we are Christians, because amongst these are men devoted to learning, and men who have renounced the world,

00:13:50--> 00:14:07

and they are not arrogant. And when they listen to the revelation received by the messenger, that will see the eyes overflowing with tears, for they recognize the truth. They pray, our Lord, we believe, right as down among the witnesses.

00:14:08--> 00:14:45

What cost can we have not to believe in Allah, and the truth which has come to us, saying that we long for our Lord, to admit us to the company of the righteous, and for this their prayer has Allah rewarded them with gardens, with rivers, flowing underneath the eternal home? Such is the recompense of those who do good, but those who reject faith and rely on science, they should be companions of hellfire. So to come long as him, so thank you, brother Dorsey. Without further ado, I will call upon Dr. Zaki.

00:15:23--> 00:15:27

May peace, mercy and blessings of Allah subhanho wa Taala. We are now on

00:15:28--> 00:15:33

the topic of today evening stalkers in the form of a question

00:15:34--> 00:15:37

why the West is coming to Islam?

00:15:38--> 00:15:52

And if you have to give the reply in just one sentence? The answer is the West is coming to Islam, because Islam has the solutions to the problems of the West,

00:15:54--> 00:15:55

the Western world

00:15:56--> 00:15:58

mainly the society.

00:16:00--> 00:16:02

It caters to 13 needs

00:16:03--> 00:16:04

of the body.

00:16:06--> 00:16:09

it caters to the physical needs of the body.

00:16:10--> 00:16:18

There are several religions, most of them which only cater to the spiritual aspect. That's the soul.

00:16:20--> 00:16:37

But the hamdulillah Islam is a religion, which has got a dual role. it caters to the physical aspect of the body, as well as the spiritual leader of the soul. It has a dual role, it caters to the body as well as the soul.

00:16:39--> 00:16:44

Islam comes from the root word salam, which means peace.

00:16:45--> 00:16:59

It also means submitting your will to Allah subhana wa tada to Almighty God. In short, Islam means peace acquired by submitting your will to Allah subhanho wa Taala. to Almighty God.

00:17:01--> 00:17:02

The Glorious Quran

00:17:04--> 00:17:12

is the last and final revelation of Allah subhanho wa Taala which was revealed to the last and final messenger prophet promises.

00:17:14--> 00:17:26

The Glorious Quran is the most positive book in the world. It's a proclamation to humanity. It's a fountain of mercy and wisdom. It's a warning to the headless,

00:17:27--> 00:17:28

a guide to the error

00:17:29--> 00:17:35

and assurance to those in doubt, as well as to the suffering and hope to those in despair.

00:17:38--> 00:17:44

Let us analyze today the reasons why the West is coming to Islam.

00:17:46--> 00:17:49

One of the important reason is the Western world

00:17:51--> 00:17:52

is open minded.

00:17:54--> 00:18:00

The minds aren't closed, they're broad minded, and neither are the conservative like many other parts of the world.

00:18:03--> 00:18:03

And

00:18:05--> 00:18:12

that is the reason that I say when people ask me the question that I keep on traveling by the greatest Allah subhanaw taala to different parts of the world.

00:18:14--> 00:18:17

How is the response to the talks etc. So I tell them

00:18:18--> 00:18:44

that our job is to deliver the message of Allah subhanho wa Taala It is he who gives a die. Allah says in Surah, Russia, Chapter 88 was number 21 for Sakina monta moussaka for you have to admonish, you are not a manager of affairs or people's thing, but I tell them that there is a lot of difference between the Western world and the eastern world.

00:18:45--> 00:18:49

And if suppose, I tell them, that if my non Muslim

00:18:50--> 00:18:58

in the eastern world, especially the country where I come from, that is India, if one non Muslim in India accepts Islam,

00:19:00--> 00:19:16

it is equivalent to 50 non Muslims accepting Islam in the Western world. That doesn't mean one Indian is for superior. It is 50 times more superior than the Westerner. It's not that what I'm trying to tell them is that the society

00:19:17--> 00:19:19

in the especially India, it is conservative.

00:19:20--> 00:19:21

It's narrow minded.

00:19:22--> 00:19:29

Even if a person likes the digital of Islam, it's very difficult for him to accept Islam.

00:19:30--> 00:19:31

Because

00:19:32--> 00:19:41

he has several problems. Even if he likes Islam. He's afraid of a society, the society may boycott. He may have economic problems,

00:19:42--> 00:19:43

there will be danger to his life.

00:19:44--> 00:20:00

He may have social problems, and therefore, even if a person likes Islam, in India, it is very difficult for him to accept Islam because the society is conservative and the people they are narrow minded as compared to

00:20:00--> 00:20:05

Westerners, but that is no excuse for the non Muslims in India

00:20:06--> 00:20:10

for not to accept Islam will be held responsible for that,

00:20:11--> 00:20:13

as compared to the Westerners.

00:20:14--> 00:20:40

I keep on giving talks Alhamdulillah in Middle East and various parts of the world. Some Westerners keep on following me. And after a couple of lectures, or just even after one lecture Alhamdulillah we like Islam so much that they accept at the end of the talk, which is not the case in Bombay, after all, Arjuna and f2. Really, for months and years together. Finally, it's not because of the efforts of the day that the person accepts Islam is bigger Allah subhanaw taala gives them

00:20:41--> 00:20:49

and gives them courage. So first reason I would say to Westerners are more broad minded, because in the same family, the father

00:20:50--> 00:20:55

can be Christian, but he would not mind. If the children they accept Islam,

00:20:57--> 00:21:11

yet they can live under the same roof, which is not the case in India. Hardly, when you find that the Father belongs to a different religion, and the children belong to different religion, you will not find such a family.

00:21:13--> 00:21:22

Therefore, I say that the Westerners are more broad minded, and they are not conservative, as far as religion is concerned.

00:21:25--> 00:21:27

The other important reason is to the Western world.

00:21:29--> 00:21:37

It is advanced in the field of science and technology of the West Alhamdulillah. At least in this age, it has advanced in the field of science and technology.

00:21:39--> 00:21:42

And according to Albert Einstein, he said

00:21:43--> 00:21:50

that science without religion is lame. And religion without science is blind.

00:21:52--> 00:21:58

And Westerners, they consider science as a yardstick. The ultimate yardstick to judge anything is science.

00:22:00--> 00:22:01

And, and hamdulillah.

00:22:02--> 00:22:15

Koran speaks several things about science. The Quran is not a book of science as C, D, and E is a book of science as DNS.

00:22:16--> 00:22:24

And there are more than 6000 signs, I add in the Glorious Quran, out of which more than 1000 speak about science.

00:22:26--> 00:23:06

Have you ever heard my talk, I've given a talk on current and modern science compatible or incompatible, or Quran in modern science, conflict reconciliation, which proves 100 Allah that the Quran is far superior to science. So with the help of using the yardstick of the Westerners, we can prove our yardstick which is Quran, which is far superior than science has mentioned what they have discovered today, 1400 years ago, since that was in the field of science and technology. And if we speak with them, we'll take them and hamdulillah they realize that Quran is far superior to science, and many of them come to Islam.

00:23:09--> 00:23:12

Thirdly, hamdulillah the Westerners,

00:23:13--> 00:23:14

they like to reason out,

00:23:16--> 00:23:24

they won't just accept anything on face value, they will reason out, they will investigate, and then only will they be convinced

00:23:25--> 00:23:28

they are not a group of people

00:23:30--> 00:23:36

who believe in superstition, most of them, neither do they adhere to blind beliefs?

00:23:38--> 00:24:05

And that's exactly what the parentheses and grant through the technique how to insert in the head. Chapter number 16 was number 125. receive all the possibilities become a hikma? Well, not only that has not been that he asked him that is in white all the way of the Lord with wisdom and beautiful preaching, and argue with them and reason with them in the ways that the best one was gracious. Quran always encourages reasoning.

00:24:06--> 00:24:20

No wonder the Quran says in several places, including Surah Baqarah chapter number two was number 242 la la quinta de Lune. So that you may understand the Quran wants the people to understand the Quran and then accepted

00:24:24--> 00:24:25

the Quran phase

00:24:26--> 00:24:43

three Brahim, chapter number 14, was no 52. That here is a message for the humankind. Let them take warnings from let them know there is one God and let the men of understanding teach you the Quran says let the men of understanding teach it

00:24:45--> 00:24:49

and hamdulillah many of the Westerners they are men of understanding.

00:24:52--> 00:24:59

And they always like to question anything until they are convinced they will not accept it. That is the reason

00:25:00--> 00:25:08

If you read the Quran, the Quran is also a sort of a question on the book. No wonder if you read the Quran it's mentioned Talu

00:25:10--> 00:25:16

300 times they say they asked, and the Quran says 300 times cool tell

00:25:18--> 00:25:27

it is a sort of a look, for example, they are concerned in mind gambling, and the Quran museums. They are the concerning New Moon. And the Quran says cool stars.

00:25:29--> 00:25:32

It satisfies the intellectual of a person.

00:25:34--> 00:25:35

And today,

00:25:36--> 00:25:47

most parts of the world, especially the west part of the world, you know, people are very busy. There are so many new philosophies and new things coming up that time doesn't permit us to analyze everything.

00:25:48--> 00:25:55

The Westerners, and the people around the world are very busy. So now if you bring up a new theory, or a new hypothesis,

00:25:57--> 00:26:02

or a new philosophy, first they asked you that Do you have

00:26:03--> 00:26:11

any way to prove your theory wrong? Or do you have any way to prove your philosophy wrong? It's known as for certification test.

00:26:13--> 00:26:44

The Westerners they believe in the first fiction test with any theory you bring forth. If you want us to analyze that theory. First, show us the way how to prove your theory wrong. What will we do that will prove your theory wrong, then we'll analyze it. Otherwise, there are 1000s of things people are bringing up new theory, where do we have the time to analyze everything? If you have a way to prove your theory wrong? We will do that and prove it wrong. If you can't, then we'll agree with the theory. that the reason Albert Einstein when he propounded his theory of relativity, he had three ways he said to prove my theory wrong do these three things and theory will be proved wrong

00:26:44--> 00:26:52

and don't accept it. So for six years, they tested it out. And they agreed. And then but natural. He got the Nobel Prize.

00:26:54--> 00:27:01

Quran is the only religious book and Islam is the only religion which has this first vacation test.

00:27:02--> 00:27:12

And I have discussed various postulation test and microset is the Quran God's word I'll just mentioned one of them, which mainly caters to the Western mind.

00:27:14--> 00:27:54

The Glorious Quran says incident research happening before was nominated to alfalah is the Bruner Parana voila Karna Minh in the gala lava to fake the Lofton casita that do they not consider the Quran with K? Do they not ponder over the Quran with K hadn't been from anyone besides Allah, there would have been many discrepancies, there would have been many contradictions in it. So if you want to prove the Quran wrong, to take out a single discrepancy, the Quran is proved wrong. If you want to say Quran or the Word of God, you take out a contradiction cannot be proved wrong, it is so easy. Just take out one mistake in the Quran. And the Quran will be proved wrong. So easy. Just go to the

00:27:54--> 00:28:01

book will take you a few hours or a couple of days. Take out the mistake and agree the Quran is wrong. It is presenting a false suffocation test

00:28:03--> 00:28:36

throughout the ages that are false, which was given by the Quran, but for this age, this test is there, which was applicable in that time. But today it's more applicable in today's age of Science and Technology previously was the age of literature, poetry, etc. It had different formulation test for that time, which isn't applicable today. But this particular one is applicable for the Westerners. Not that Westerners didn't dry. You have several critics of Islam, giving hundreds of alleged contradictions, alleged scientific errors, all of which are actually nothing but false.

00:28:38--> 00:28:56

Because if you know more about science, as Francis Bacon said, that little knowledge of science makes you an atheist. But then in depth knowledge of science makes you a believer in God. That is the reason today, the Western world.

00:28:57--> 00:29:04

They are eliminating models of God, but they are not eliminating God. La ilaha illAllah.

00:29:07--> 00:29:20

As I mentioned, that Islam has the solutions to the problems of the rest. Time doesn't permit us to discuss all the problems and solutions, which Sam has, we'll just pick up a few and discuss a few of them.

00:29:22--> 00:29:23

As I mentioned,

00:29:24--> 00:29:39

that the Western world is drowned in materialism. It's a materialistic world, no more concerned about trying to see the welfare of the body so much that they have been drowned in materialism.

00:29:40--> 00:29:52

And Quran has a solution. Khurana says and sort of taba chapter number nine was the metaphor in 35. It says that spend of your wealth in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala

00:29:54--> 00:29:59

and give a warning to those people who bury gold and silver

00:30:00--> 00:30:11

Spend it not in the way of Allah to hoard the golden silver and spend it not in the way of Allah announced to them agree with penalty, that fire will be produced from the wealth which they afforded.

00:30:12--> 00:30:20

It will be heated in the hellfire. And on the Day of Judgment, they'll be branded with it, on the forehead, on the flanks and on the back.

00:30:22--> 00:30:25

And the Quran says that this life is a test for the hereafter.

00:30:26--> 00:30:35

And for the book, Chapter 16, verse number two, that Allah subhana wa Taala has created death and life to test which of you is good indeed.

00:30:37--> 00:30:39

And the Quran says in Surah Allah branch chapter three was the 185

00:30:41--> 00:30:44

that Kuru Nussenzweig mod, every soul shall have a taste of

00:30:46--> 00:30:49

the final recompense shall be paid on the Day of Judgment.

00:30:50--> 00:31:15

And anyone who enters the garden that is done and is kept away from the Hellfire, he would have achieved the purpose of this life. For this life is but goods and chapters of deception. Quran says this life people are running after materialism. It's a good of chatters and deception. But the person who saved from the Hellfire and enter the garden would have achieved the objective of this life.

00:31:18--> 00:31:19

People spend too much money etc.

00:31:20--> 00:31:23

and Quran has a solution for the spendthrifts currencies.

00:31:25--> 00:31:27

And for Israel, chapter number 17.

00:31:28--> 00:31:33

was number 26 and 27. That spend not your wealth,

00:31:34--> 00:31:45

like that of a spendthrift will do not be as Pinterest because Pinterest are the brothers of the devil. But military spend excessively You are a brother of the devil.

00:31:47--> 00:31:48

And today,

00:31:50--> 00:31:54

throughout the world, in the Western world, you have

00:31:55--> 00:32:01

a system that in order to hoard more wealth, and to gain more wealth, you use your wealth

00:32:02--> 00:32:03

to eat other people's wealth.

00:32:04--> 00:32:06

In English it's called as bribing

00:32:08--> 00:32:13

the Quran systems for a Baccarat chapter number two was the morning did that squander not your wealth

00:32:14--> 00:32:23

on when it is and do not use your wealth in order to use it as baits to judges so that

00:32:24--> 00:32:26

you may eat other people's wealth.

00:32:28--> 00:32:36

That means do not use your wealth as applied as bait to judges so that you may eat other people's wealth. Bing is prohibited in Islam.

00:32:39--> 00:32:40

And the Quran says

00:32:42--> 00:32:59

it's rotarod chapter 49 was number 11 interest that lead not one group of men laugh at the others who may never know the latter may be better than the former lead not one group of women laugh at the other you may never know the latter move better than the former.

00:33:00--> 00:33:12

Do not call each other by nicknames. Don't be sarcastic to one another. avoid suspicion. For suspicion, in some cases is a sin to not spy on one another.

00:33:13--> 00:33:21

Do not backbite Do not call each other by nicknames and not slander behind the backs do not back bite.

00:33:23--> 00:33:33

Are you ready to eat the dead meat of her brother. The Quran says that if you backbite if you speak against somebody back, it's as though you're eating the dead meat of your brother.

00:33:34--> 00:34:03

And eating dead meat is prohibited in the Quran. Speaking bad about someone without proof. slandering him without proof is prohibited in Islam, slandering someone behind his back when he doesn't have an abortion to clarify his double sin. Eating dead meat is a sin, eating dead meat of your brother, the cannibals who eat meat, even they don't eat the meat of the own brother. So backbiting is as good as eating the dead meat of her brother. And Quran says nay you would abort it.

00:34:04--> 00:34:14

This backbiting and slandering in the garb of freedom of expression, no hidden behind the term freedom of expression. You find it very prevalent throughout

00:34:16--> 00:34:21

the Western world and people abusing each other slandering each other inverted commas, freedom of expression.

00:34:23--> 00:34:32

different settings for the Hosea chapter 104 was number one, why law legal Lumosity lomasa war to every kind of scandal monger and backbiting

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

the problem today

00:34:36--> 00:34:42

which the West is facing, and it has also seen to it that the other parts are facing because of it

00:34:43--> 00:34:45

is Riba his interest

00:34:47--> 00:34:58

today, the Western world because in problem because of rebar because of interest, and they're seen to it, that they've passed this disease, even to the other parts of the world. It started

00:35:00--> 00:35:13

England by the King of England. He said that to give money, have stupid review and then have to give you interest fixed interest on it. And that's how the present interest based banking system started and they have spread this fever this disease throughout the world.

00:35:16--> 00:35:22

The Quran mentions about Riba the word Riba is given the Quran in no less than eight different times.

00:35:24--> 00:35:50

It's mentioned in Surah Al imraan. Chapter number three was the 130 in Surah Nisa, chapter number four was number 161. It's mentioned in the story room chapter 30 verse 39, thrive instead of Baccarat chapter number two was number 275. It's also mentioned for the Baccarat chapter number two was number 276. And instead of Biafra chapter number two was number 278. The word Riba is mentioned the Glorious Quran no less than eight times

00:35:51--> 00:36:21

and why it is haram etc. I've given a talk on interest free economy promulgated by the Quran for people who want to know the reason why Islam has prohibited Riba and the Riba includes interest over and above. People say that, oh no, Riba doesn't include interest modern interest, it only means usury. And I've described this in detail. People can avail of videocassette interest free economy, promulgated by the Quran, which is more detailed time doesn't permit us to go into the minute details of economics in this talk.

00:36:22--> 00:36:34

But just like to get the translation of two words of the Quran, that is to the Baccarat chapter two, verse 217, and 2010 which says that all you believe, give up your demands of Riba of interest.

00:36:36--> 00:36:50

And if you give not your demands of Riba interest, take notice of a war from Allah and isn't solely mean anyone who deals with interest, Allah is received will wage a war against you.

00:36:52--> 00:36:58

There are various things mentioned the various Quran which are mixings going on.

00:37:00--> 00:37:14

But this particular sin, besides being a grave sin, it also says that anyone who deals with interest, Allah and His Rasool will wage a war against you. If you didn't interest, the challenging Atlanta referral for a war.

00:37:18--> 00:37:19

Furthermore,

00:37:21--> 00:37:22

if you see in the Western world,

00:37:25--> 00:37:26

we have people,

00:37:28--> 00:37:31

especially the children, don't respect the parents.

00:37:32--> 00:37:34

It's more in the Western world as compared to Western world.

00:37:36--> 00:37:36

And

00:37:38--> 00:37:48

nowadays, in the new era, you have special child abuse sells to the Western world, in America, and in other European countries.

00:37:50--> 00:38:19

You can find the police, the special child abuse cell, and you can even set in your parents. If your parents call you too much you can you better be careful. Either they'll dial that number and apparently understand Okay, now he means business. You're giving rights to everyone. rights are then Islam have even given rights to children. The maximum is in Islam. But the Quran says lithography do come in chapter four was 171 do not commit excessive in your religion.

00:38:21--> 00:38:31

But natural selection be protected. But now in the garb of protection. The children they are threatening. They are blackmailing the parents if they want something,

00:38:32--> 00:38:43

and if the parents don't give, they can blackmail. You can even give fake calls no problem. The police will come me as the parent may not understand but they can be problems.

00:38:44--> 00:38:59

Several police in the Quran says that you should respect your parents several places and should look match up number 31 Muslim a 14 instead of a calf step number 46 verse number 15. And Surinam chapter six verse 150 on several places, but specifically, it says

00:39:00--> 00:39:29

in Surah Surah chapter number 17 was the maternity and 24 it says that after worship of Allah subhanaw taala the next duty is respecting your parents. The Quran says for Israel chapter 17 verse 23, and 24 that Allah has ordained for you that the worship none but me and let you be kind to your parents. And if any one of them or both of them, reach old age, do not even say a word of contempt. Don't even say off to them.

00:39:31--> 00:39:32

You can't even say off to them.

00:39:34--> 00:40:00

But lower to them your vein of humility and enter them with honor and pay to the Lord that cherish them as they cherished me in childhood. Imagine the Quran says if any one or both of your parents reach old age, you cannot immediately off to them. In the Western world we have the concept of old age home where the parent gets old, put them into the old age home. There is no concept of

00:40:00--> 00:40:03

old age home in Islam, because the duty of the children

00:40:05--> 00:40:09

and the rest is to look after the elderly people that respect them, they have to love them.

00:40:10--> 00:40:16

They have to behave with them with compassion. Unlike the Western world, which moment a

00:40:17--> 00:40:17

child

00:40:19--> 00:40:24

the parents may have looked after the child, but moment he feels against standard loan to feed.

00:40:25--> 00:40:27

Then he shows his back to the parents.

00:40:31--> 00:40:34

The common problem which is there in the Western world, is adultery.

00:40:37--> 00:40:37

It is fornication.

00:40:39--> 00:40:41

And the Glorious Quran says

00:40:42--> 00:41:00

it is for Israel. Chapter number 17 was the motto that come not close to adultery for it is an evil opening road to other evils. Adultery is an evil opening road to other areas. That is the reason in Islam. Marriage is complicity.

00:41:02--> 00:41:03

There is no monasticism in Islam.

00:41:05--> 00:41:17

And our beloved prophet Muslim said as mentioned say Buhari won number seven, and the book of Mecca chapter number three, Hadith number four, that all young people, whoever has the means to get married, should get married.

00:41:20--> 00:41:25

And our beloved Prophet said that anyone who marries completes half his Deen

00:41:27--> 00:41:31

monitoring question answer time somebody asked me that, does it mean that if I married twice I complete my folding?

00:41:35--> 00:41:40

What did the Prophet mean by say marriage completes half god what he meant

00:41:41--> 00:41:41

that

00:41:42--> 00:41:50

marriage prevents you from promiscuity, from homosexuality from fornication, which are have the evenness it

00:41:51--> 00:42:09

only if you married Do you have an opportunity to be a husband and wife only if you married? Do you have an opportunity to be a father or mother which are very important you did in Islam. Therefore, the Quran says that marriage is a massage, a sacred covenant in Surah Nisa, chapter number four was number 21.

00:42:10--> 00:42:18

Allah Subhana Allah says in the room, Chapter 30, verse number 21, that amongst the signs he has made for you, made of like nature.

00:42:20--> 00:42:27

So that made well in him with tranquility, and he has put love and mercy between your hearts, marriage as campuses.

00:42:29--> 00:42:38

Today, one of the biggest problem that the Western world is facing, which is not so much in the eastern part of the world is the surplus of woman.

00:42:39--> 00:42:40

You have more women

00:42:42--> 00:42:42

in the Western world

00:42:44--> 00:42:47

and the eastern world The reason is, because of female infanticide.

00:42:48--> 00:42:52

If the evil factor stops, even the eastern world, this problem will be there.

00:42:55--> 00:43:10

If you analyze the various currencies, and give the solution for this problem is for Anissa. Chapter number four was number three, that married women have a choice in two threes or fours. But if you can't do justice marry only one.

00:43:12--> 00:43:29

That means a person can marry two to the fourth he can do justice if he can't marry only one. But at the same time, the Quran says in Surah chapter four, verse 129, it is impossible for you to do justice between your wives to do not turn away from them altogether.

00:43:30--> 00:43:37

What the Quran is referring to that when it comes to justice as love is concerned, it's difficult. It's impossible

00:43:39--> 00:44:15

to love boys equally, even a mother, she loves our children. But no mother can say that I love 100% Exactly. Both my children sin can because she can love both the children hamdulillah very much. But no mother can say I love Exactly. Both my children are the same level. It's not possible. There has to be some Apollo, but overall there should not be injustice. So Quran says it's impossible to just in between our wives, but don't turn away from them altogether. Regarding the other things when it comes to money, time etc. You should be just between your wife if you buy one house survive the second.

00:44:16--> 00:44:46

So the Quran says you're only allowed to marry more than one wife. If you can do justice. If you can't do justice, you cannot. Many people think that marry more than one wife is compensated Islam. That's a misconception. In Islam, there are five categories of do's and don'ts. First is foreign which is compulsory. Second is most the hub that is recommended or encouraged. Third is mobile. that's optional. Four is mcru. That is discouraged. And the fifth is haram that is privately

00:44:47--> 00:44:54

poly Genie, a man allowed to marry more than one wife comes in the category of option number two category.

00:44:56--> 00:44:59

There's no wasn't the financing that if you marry more than one wife you get most of us

00:45:02--> 00:45:12

Let's analyze why this Quran gives the permission that under certain circumstances you can have more than one wife. By nature, men and women are born in equal proportion male and female, they're born in equal proportion.

00:45:13--> 00:45:33

But during the patriotic age itself, if you ask any pediatrician, he will tell you that the female child can find the germs and diseases much better than the male child. So in pediatric age itself, there are more male children dying than female children. So in the pediatric age itself, the female population is more than the male population.

00:45:34--> 00:45:53

As life goes on, that takes place due to accident, severe smoking, walls, etc. In all these cases, more male are dying as compared to female. So today in the world, there is more female population as compared to male population. It's only in certain countries like India, that

00:45:54--> 00:46:36

the male population is more than the female population. And other third, it is because of female infanticide. And according to a report of BBC, by Emily beckoning on the program, assignment, the topic was letter day. She said that every day more than 3000 fetuses are being aborted in India alone, after they identified that the females if you multiply this figure by 365, the number of days in a year, more than 1 million fetuses are being aborted every year in India, after the identified that the females if you stop this evil practice, even in India and some other countries, the female population will exceed the male population.

00:46:38--> 00:46:39

According to statistics,

00:46:41--> 00:46:46

USA alone has 7.8 million females more than males.

00:46:48--> 00:46:51

live alone has 1 million females more than males

00:46:53--> 00:47:09

out of the population of New York, the statistics tell us one third I guess, gives me sort of mine, please call me Do let me know they'd like to have female allies partners that are more than 25 million gays, so termites in America and USA, and the problem

00:47:11--> 00:47:12

25 million.

00:47:15--> 00:47:19

In UK alone, there are 4 million females more than males.

00:47:21--> 00:47:43

In Germany alone, there are 5 million females more than made. In Russia alone, there are 9 million females more than males. And Allah subhanaw taala knows alone How many millions of females are there more than males throughout the world. Suppose I agree with the Western philosophy, or non Muslim law says that one man should only marry one woman. And suppose my sister happens to live in America.

00:47:44--> 00:47:50

And suppose the market is saturated that every man has already taken a woman for himself.

00:47:51--> 00:48:00

Yet there'll be 30 million females who will not find life partners 7.8 million as it is access, and the 25 million gays if you add to them.

00:48:02--> 00:48:04

There are more than 30 million females

00:48:05--> 00:48:08

who will not find life partners. Now the only option remaining

00:48:10--> 00:48:18

for my sister, multiple jobs established in America. And she's that unfortunate one who has not found a life partner if she can find a man who's not met.

00:48:19--> 00:48:31

But suppose the market is saturated. What she will do, the only option remaining for her is that she either married a man who already has a wife or she becomes public property.

00:48:33--> 00:48:44

Do people say public property doctors are using such a harsh word. I am saying that is the most sophisticated words that I can use is public property. You know, I cannot use other words because I'm a die.

00:48:46--> 00:48:48

public property. There's no third option.

00:48:51--> 00:48:58

And any modern woman would say she would prefer the first becoming the wife of a minority has a wife than to become public property.

00:49:00--> 00:49:02

And, you know, in the Western world,

00:49:03--> 00:49:06

it's very common. People have missed this is very common.

00:49:08--> 00:49:30

The statistics of USA tell us that on average, one man has a different sexual partners before he settles down with one life partner. Some may have 10 may have 20 Some may have 30. Some may have less to one, on average, in different sexual life partners before he settles down with one permanent one.

00:49:31--> 00:49:37

Having a mistress is no problem you can have 110 2030 no problem. But if you ask any woman

00:49:38--> 00:49:39

when a woman becomes a mistress,

00:49:41--> 00:49:47

she doesn't have honor. She's degraded. She doesn't have any rights as compared to a woman.

00:49:48--> 00:49:52

When a woman is the second wife of a man.

00:49:53--> 00:49:57

She gets honor. She gets respect. She gets the right

00:49:59--> 00:49:59

V is

00:50:00--> 00:50:14

hamdulillah give the woman the due rights for the Western world. They can easily agree with the philosophy of a man having several mistresses. But a person having more than one wife, it doesn't go down the throat.

00:50:16--> 00:50:20

Islam has a solution to the problems of humankind.

00:50:21--> 00:50:42

If you analyze most of the major religions, the speed good things, don't rob don't cheat, etc. Islam says the same. But the difference between Islam and the other religion is that Islam besides picking good things, it shows you a way how to achieve that state of goodness, how to achieve the state in which these particular principles or laws can be followed.

00:50:43--> 00:50:44

For example,

00:50:45--> 00:51:02

all the major religions, including the Western world says that a person should not drop. If you read the Constitution of America and Europe, it says that a citizen should not run and if he robs, there are certain remedies given but it's not showing it colors.

00:51:03--> 00:51:33

Islam to says that it should not run. But Islam has a solution. It shows you a way how to achieve that state in which people will not wrong. Islam has a system of Socratic, that is every rich person who has a savings of more than the nisab level 85 grams of gold, he should give 2.5% of tax saving and charity every lunar year. If every rich person gives the card poverty will be eradicated from this world. There will not be a single human being who will die of hunger.

00:51:34--> 00:51:46

And after this, the currencies and sort of Maya Jeff number five was the motorcade after the thief beat a man or woman chopped off his or her hand as punishment from Allah subhanaw taala
