And they see if a person if your arms and hands are chopped off, what about his family? What about his children, etc. It's a ruthless law. I say some takes care of that person as problem, the Islamic State looks after the affairs of the family. But the question is, how many people's hands are being chopped off the last leg that no one dares to rob? It is so strict. So where is the question of implementing the punishment? The crime doesn't take place to where it's a question of implementing the punishment.
Today, America, which happens to be one of the most advanced country in the world, do you know it also has one of the highest rate of crime theft? property? I'm asking the question, if you implement the Islamic Sharia, in states, every rich person gives a cut. And after that, If any man or woman Rob's job of his or her hand, as a punishment, I'm asked me a question, will the rate of robbery, crime theft in America will increase will determine the same over a decrease? What will happen?
Will it increase will remain the same? Or will it decrease? It will decrease. It's a practical law. you implement the Sharia and you get results. That is the reason I say that Islam besides picking good things. It shows you a way how to achieve the state of goodness. And this is the reason why many Westerners today are coming to Islam.
Let me give you an example.
that most of the philosophies, most of the religions in the Western world says in the constitution of the country, that you should not molest a woman who should not rape. If it's in the Constitution of America and European countries, it is there you should not molest a woman who should not rape her. Islam says the same. But Islam shows you a way how to achieve that state in which people will not molest a woman or a woman, Islam as a system of hijab.
Normally, Islamic speakers always speak about Egypt for the woman, but Allah subhanho wa Taala in the Glorious Quran, first piece about the hijab for the man and then for the woman,
the Quran says is renewed chapter number 24 was the motto that said the believing man that he should lower his gaze and guard his modesty. Whenever a man looks at a woman. And any breeze in thought comes in his mind. Any unashamed thought comes in his mind, the Quran says he should lower his case.
There was once my friend who was a Muslim, who was staring
at a girl for a long time. So I told him rather What are you doing? It's not allowed in Islam. So he told me, our beloved Prophet said, the first glance is allowed. The second is prohibited, I have not yet completed half my glands.
What did the Prophet mean by saying the first dance that allowed the second is prohibited. That doesn't mean you can look at a woman and for 10 minutes you can look at her without blinking and stare at her without bring him for 10 minutes. What the Prophet meant that if you look at a woman and intentionally don't intentionally Look at her again, stare at her again.
The next one speaks about the job for the woman, the Quran says is renewed chapter number 24 was the Metatron let's say to the believing woman that she should lower against and gather modesty and display not her beauty except for appears ordinary and draw her way over the bosoms and display know the beauty except in front of her husband, her father, her sons, and a big list of mirim. The close relatives who she can marry is given.
And the criteria for a job are given the front sad, the basically six criterias.
For the man, the extent is from the navel to the knee, for the woman, the complete body should recovered, normally parts that can be seen, or the face and the hands up to the wrist. Some scholars say that even this should be covered.
The remaining five criteria are the same for the man and the woman. The second is the clothes the way it should not be so tight that it reveals the figure. Third, it should not be transparent, so that you can see through fourth, it should not be glamorous, so that it attracts the opposite sex. Fifth, it should not resemble that of the unbeliever you cannot wear a sign of Christianity like across you cannot wear our own potica which the sign of Hinduism don't do a closed which identity of an unbeliever and the last is to not wear clothes that would resemble the opposite sex. In the Western world we have men wearing one earring.
It has a significant one year in
such things are private in Islam.
hijab is not confined only to the clothing.
It also includes the moral conduct, the behavior, the attitude, the intention of a person. Besides the clothes, they should be the job of the eyes, the job of the mind, the job of the thought, his job of the heart.
should even have a job and the way he talks the way he behaves
the way he thinks.
And the reason for his job for the woman is mentioned the Reuters Quran in surah HAZOP chapter 33 verse 15, and he says, that oh Prophet, tell your wives and the believing woman, that when they go abroad, they should put on the clock so that they shall be recognized.
The Quran gives reason put on the clock for that disadvantage nice and they shall not be molested.
The Quran says hijab has been prescribed to prevent the woman from being molested.
For example, if there are two sisters who are twins, and are very beautiful, they are walking on the streets of Accra Lumpur, and one twin sister.
She's wearing this Makita that is complete body covered except the face and the handle of tourists. And the other twin sisters equally beautiful, very beautiful. She's writing the western clothes, the skirt or the mini and they're walking down the street and round the corner. There is a hooligan there is a rough end who's waiting for a catch? Who's very rupees a girl. I am asking a question which gullibility is will it is the girl wearing the summer job abilities the sister who's wearing the skirt or the mini which gullibility is
but natural, He will teach the girl wearing the skirt of the Mini. She's inviting the people it is the Quran rightly says that hijab prevents the woman from being molested. And after this, the Glorious Quran says that if any man rapes a woman, capital punishment, that penalty
the Westerners miss a death penalty in this age of Science and Technology. In the 20th century, Islam is a barbaric religion, people miss.
But when I ask this question to the Westerners, I've gone there several times that suppose someone brought forbid, raped your wife, or a mother? And if suppose you're made the charges, and the rapist is bought in front of you?
What punishment will you give him? And believe me, all of them said, we will put the rapist to death, someone to the extreme of saying we will torture him to death.
So I tell the Westerners why the double standards, somebody raped somebody else's by Vizio, that penalty is a barbaric law. Somebody rapes your wife and your mother used to put him to death? Why the double standards?
Only one person one Westerner so far, has given me a different answer. We know he told me
I will give the rapist if someone gave my wife, I will first give him seven years imprisonment.
And next time if you raped my wife again, or you raped anyone, then I will give that penalty. There are some smart Alex, you know, give new answers
there as metallics.
So it was a better? Do you know the statutes of America, they tell us that when a man is convicted for rape, the American government says seven years rigorous imprisonment.
But the statistics tell us that those people who have been convicted and undergo the punishment, after that lead free 95% of them again committed.
So I told that Westerner said American, if you like your wife to be raped again, You are most welcome to give seven years and then put him to death. I wouldn't like that are put into that on the first time irrespective of the race, my wife or your wife, if you like mothers to be raped again and again, you can try that law. And then you got the shock of his life. And it was the statistics that if that is the case, then even out put it into that the first thing
is Sam has the solution.
We know today in America of under statistics, according to the FBI statistics of 1990. It said that throughout the year, in the year 1990 102,555 cases of rape are reported.
And it said that out of the cases that were reported
only 16% of the total cases were reported. If you want to know the total number of rape that took place, multiply the figure by 6.25. And with the answer of 640,968 cases of rape took place alone and then 99 if you divide this trigger by 365, the number of days everyday on average in the year 19 91,756 rapes took place.
I did another statistics. later on. We said that every day, more than 1900 cases of rape take place in USA alone. The year was not given maybe it was 9293. The American got more bold in
1900. That means every 1.3 minute, one case of repetition
know I'm here since more than nastain already more than 40 rithmetic interests in USA, I'm here for one hour and 40 rapes have taken place in USA.
And the statutes of FBI 1990 contingencies that out of those cases that were reported 16% out of those reported 10% were arrested. That means 1.6% of the rapists, they were arrested, out of those arrested 50% were led free before the trial, that means only point 8% of the rapists they underwent a trial. That means if a man commits 125 rapes, the chances that he will undergo trial and get a punishment is only
one 125 rapes you commit, and you get a punishment once it's a very good gamble. 125 rapes you commit, and chances the government will give you a punishment is one, it's a very good gamble.
And out of those that undergo a trial 50% get a punishment of less than one year to the American law says seven years rigorous imprisonment. But the judge said the first time he's committed if I give him benefit of doubt, literally the lenient 125 rapes he commits to come to the trial once and the judge says, Let's be lenient first time he's committed.
These are the statistics of FBI of us.
I must be a question. If you implement Islamic Sharia in USA, that every man who looks at a woman, he should load his case,
with any bit in common in his mind, the woman truly Islamic has a complete body covered except the face and hands up to this. And after this, if any man commits rape, capital punishment, death penalty, I must no question. Will the rate of rape in America would increase will remain the same or will it decrease?
It will decrease it's a practical law. you implement the Sharia and you get results.
And Islam as I said, has the solution to the problems of mankind.
And one of the major problems in the Western world is alcoholism. Which leads to the problem laws.
the Glorious Quran has a solution it says it's a reminder check number five was number 90 yeah you have less in common or you believe in nominal come roll my balls certainly intoxicants and gambling, what undissolved Well, Islam, dedication of stones divination of arrows, rich vermin, a militia, leader status animal, first and Ebola come to flee who abstained from this handybook determine prosper. The Quran says that alcoholism, gambling, neither Satan's handiwork abstain from this handbook determine prosper
you know that is an inability center in the brain, we know which prevents you from doing things which are not correct. For example, if I have to go for Call of nature, many don't do it you go to the toilet.
If I'm speaking to elders manual descent, I will say speak with respect. Don't abuse your parents don't abuse your elders, anybody centers working.
Now when you're intoxicated, this inhibitory center is inhibited.
By the alcohol. No wonder you find many are colleagues the unit in the globe itself.
They speak with abusive language. They don't respect the parent and the intoxicated and they don't care who is in front of them. They keep on speaking anything anybody center is inhibited. And
of the Western world tells us especially of the states, that
majority of the rapes that take place, majority means more than 95% of the rapes that take place. It is in the state of intoxicants. Either the rapist is intoxicated, or the victim who was raped is intoxicated.
More than 95% and almost all of the cases of incest to insist insist means sex with close relatives. father and daughter, mother and son, brother and sister insist
it's the case when the people are intoxicated.
of rape more than 95% almost all of the incest is in the state of intoxicants.
imagine even the age one of the reason for AIDS to spread is alcoholism which is very dangerous disease. One of the reasons that
there are people who say, Oh, you know, we only social drinker. We will have social regardless, once in a while, you know, some people say in cold candy because if cold. We have only one type of beer it is not harmful. So I tell them that if you're feeling good
Why don't you sit next to the fireplace?
To drink something you know, as a different drink something? Why don't you have honey, honey keeps you more warm than alcohol. But in the honey, there's no kick which you get in the beer.
No people are excuses.
And there are some Westerners who told me
Let's see brothers like Islam,
and romantics, but the thing is, that I cannot give up my icon.
There are certain people who only want excuse for not accepting Islam. So I do that brother. There suppose suppose I give you a fatwa? Suppose that for you,
I call is forgiven, if you ever recorded forgiven, just for sake of argument, will you accept Islam, then?
He will, sadly, people only give excuse for not accepting it. Not that that was the only reason why he's not accepting Islam.
Saying that no, Islam is a good religion, but I cannot give up my course. I said, Okay, fine. As you will give up a shirt, I will tell you that even if alcohol No problem, allow me, forgive me to forgive you. If you do, Allah forgive you. No problem. If that's your only hitch, from accepting Islam, I will give you a certificate, that no problem, you have alcohol, other things that will be full of Islam. This is the time to use achema. Allah said that excuses people don't accept Islam, more than Islam has a solution to the problems. There are people who say my father, he's a social drinker, since a long time.
So I tell the people, every drunkard when you interview him, every alcoholic interview him.
And again, as the doctors when you interview them, no alcoholic start drinking, because he wants to become alcoholic.
No alcoholic starts drinking because he wants to become a drunkard.
He starts as a social drinker, and many of them end up becoming Vanguards.
And then some people say no, my father, he's a social drinker. And he is very good willpower. He has only one peg a week and one peg twice a week, and he never gets intoxicated. So I tell that any human being who's been having alcohol since several years, you asked him that have you ever been intoxicated in his life? And no one can say no. If he's been a social drinker, also, at least a few times in his life, he has to be intoxicated. And if suppose during that time, if he commits a crime, like rape, or incest, Will any modest person be ever able to forgive himself again, the loss that is done irreparable, irreversible loss done to him and the victim is unforgivable?
Suppose in the state of intoxicated if you get intoxicated once and supposed to commit rape, or supposed to commit incest frcp the daughter, Will he ever be able to forgive himself?
Therefore, our beloved Prophet said, Thomas Lawson, mentioned hypnagogia
form number three, in the book of intoxicants, chapter number 30. Hadith number 389. that anything was intoxicated in large quantity is even prohibited and a small quantity, no excuse for riportati
our beloved Prophet said,
as mentioned it reminder, for number three, in the book of intoxicants, chapter number 30, Hadith number 3371. That intoxicants are the mother of all evils.
It is the mother of all evils, because of interference, so much of women in society,
molestation, rape, disease, etc, several several.
And the Prophet said that 10 categories of people occurs, those who are involved with alcohol. As mentioned if number one number three in the book of intoxicants, chapter number 30, Hadith number three to zero. And the Prophet said, anyone who's involved in 10 categories with alcohol,
Allah curses on such people, those that distilled alcohol,
those who distill it for others, those who drink it, those who transport it, do the transport for somebody else do serve it, those who sell it, those who utilize the profits of the sales, those who buy and those who buy it for someone else, all these 10 types of people. Alas, curse is on this paper.
And there are several diseases which a person can have by having intoxicated, you can give a talk only
only on the ill effects of alcohol, which the Western world knows about it. Not that it don't know. Therefore, they have several resolutions passed, which I shall discuss later on.
And you can give a talk only listing the names of diseases will take a full day. I'll just mention a few. One of the most dangerous disease which associated with the post internet call, it throws off level
having intoxicants a person can also have a
carcinoma of the esophagus, carcinoma of the head and neck carcinoma of the stomach carcinoma of the liver. A person can be used for diabetes gastritis tangga, Titus hepatitis, he can have cardiomyopathy, he can have angina, he can have hypertension, he can have multiple sclerosis. All is associated with having alcohol. A person can have peripheral neuropathy, cortical atrophy, cerebral atrophy, if you have that goal, a person can be associated with strokes with fit with paralysis with apoplexy. A person can have one x korsakoff syndrome, which is a syndrome associated with loss of immediate memory, and confabulation and retention of past memory due to timing deficiency, which is
associated with intake of alcohol. A person can also have disease like pellagra. beriberi, he can have delirium tremens, it takes place across time postoperatively and infection, especially a person who abstain from intoxicants. And if a person is suffering from this, even in advanced hospitals, sometimes they can die. He can assemble endocrine disorders, such as mix, edema, hypothyroidism, Cushing's syndrome, he can have hematological disorders, like Xena syndrome,
he can have folic acid deficiency in with his macrocytic anemia. He can have platelet disorders, thrombocytopenia, common drugs which a person takes like flashes as metronidazole can come in between if he regularly takes alcohol.
If a person takes alcohol regularly, his power to fight the diseases his immunity goes down their chances of infection of the respiratory tract. The committees of the lung like emphysema, like pulmonary tuberculosis, like lung abscess, and then a person vomits, his cough reflects is reduced during intoxication. And the vomit is can go into the lung causing lung abscess, as well as emphysema. A person can even die due to this problem. And this problem of intoxication of alcohol is further multiplied in the woman. A woman has more chances of cirrhosis of liver as compared to the man and if a woman is pregnant, and if he takes alcohol, the chances of having alcohol fetal
syndrome, it even affects the baby. There are several diseases again, mysskin disease like alopecia, eczema, pero, Nika stomatitis, several diseases, you can only list the diseases for days together and discuss for months together.
But today's doctors,
They tell us in the medical journals, that alcoholism is a disease.
It's a disease. It's not addiction, like how you have Thai food.
Yeah, pulmonary tuberculosis. And normally people are sympathetic towards people who have disease. If a person is sick, you have sympathy for a person he has got typhoid, he has got influenza is suffering from endless. So today's doctors tells us that alcoholism is a disease. So I tell them if alcoholism is a disease, it is the only disease that is sold in bottles.
It's the only disease that has a licensed outlet for its sale. It is the only disease that brings the revenue to several governments of the world, including the western government. It is the only disease that is advertised in the television, on the satellite, on the radio, in the newspapers in the magazines. It is the only disease which brings violent deaths on the highways. It is the only disease that destroys families. It is the only disease which has got no viral or germ cause it's not a disease. The Quran says in Jeremiah chapter five verse 93. So minimally shaitan first and Ebola come to flee when it's not a disease. It's the status handiwork abstain from this handiwork that you
it's normal saline solution, there are chances that you may get allured by these problems with the West has with the world has some of the solution. How to Stay away from this problem. That is Salah.
Salah doesn't only mean prayer, pray means to ask for help.
To beseech in Salah besides asking for help. We also seek our last mantras, guidance and we also praise Him therefore I prefer calling Salah as a sort of programming sort of conditioning because in the Salah, we are conditioned, we are programmed. But if someone says Where are you going and if you say I'm going for programming or brainwashing, it will sound odd. Therefore if people say prayer for Salah I've got no opposition, but that doesn't denote the complete meaning of Salah. Well in Salah we are being reminded when the mama decides certain verses after surah Fatah he may decide Surah Baqarah chapter two was monitored that do not use your wealth as paid for judges that will do not
bribe him a third for him either chapter five verse number 90 that intoxicants and gambling the sages handbook
We are being programmed again and again, because the world allows you so much, there are chances that we can get deprogrammed. Therefore, last minute Allah has shown us a solution that how to keep us reprogram
the thought of conditioning.
the Western world, they're afraid of only one thing.
The maximum that the Western world today is afraid of, is of Islam.
My Western world I mean, the leaders of the Western world,
they are afraid of Islam.
You know why?
the amount of enjoyment the teaching is because of all the evils that then society. Western world is afraid that if all these evil stop if Islam becomes prevalent, all this evil will stop her called stop, dancing will stop and coating will stop raping will stop and who will fill the coffers. For the leaders of the Western world. Most of them, they are afraid of Islam that there is in the media and regularly is pumping information against Islam. on the television, if you hear on the radio, in the magazines in the newspaper, all the information is against Islam is maligning Islam. If you've heard any bombala that takes place, it has to be a Muslim, the muslim fundamentalists and
Even the Oklahoma bombing, the headline was Middle East conspiracy. After some time in the come to know it was an American soldier. But that comes inside in the pay doesn't come on the headlines. Muslims or fundamentalist Come on the headlines. And the real reason comes inside. And you have certain things even in some countries that a 50 year old Muslim,
he has married a 16 year old girl, small letters with permission that's there. But 50 year old Muslim marries a 16 year old girl headlines and front page.
But when a non Muslim 50 year old man raped a six year old girl, it may come in news brief news brief.
Somewhere in the corner. 50 year old man, it's so common.
So with permission if a man with the permission of the girl of the parents, it doesn't go down the throat. So therefore the leaders of the Western world, they are maligning, Islam, Muslim, the fundamentalist Muslim are terrorists, Islam subjugates, a woman and all these dancers of all these are given in my classic human rights to Islam. It's even given a misconception about Islam, we can refer to that.
But in spite of this, though, the Western leaders are against Islam, or hamdulillah. Many Westerners are coming to Islam.
the right word would not be the question poses.
Why is the West coming to Islam? And that answer is
the West is not coming to Islam. The West is returning to Islam.
Because our beloved Prophet said that every man is born in Dino's family. That means innate religion
is born as a Muslim. Later on due to the influence of elders and parents and other people, the child starts doing idol worship or five worship. So the right word is people say convert. I normally say every word convert me the person from one tie goes to the other, revert me the person on the right track, he goes to the wrong track and comes back to the right track. So the more correct and appropriate word is delivered. Therefore, I would say the West is not coming. The West is returning to Islam. Because Islam has a solution to the problems of mankind. And not only the West. Islam is not only meant for the West, Islam is meant for the whole of humankind. The Glorious Quran was not
revealed only for the Muslim or the Arabs or only for the Western world. It's mentioned the Quran in surah Ibrahim chapter 14 was number one, and Islam ra D that is the Book which We have revealed to do profit muscle asylum, so that you may lead the humankind from darkness to light not only lead the Muslims or the Arabs of the Western world lead the whole of humankind from darkness to light.
Conference Rebecca chapter two was 185 that Ramadan was the month in which the Quran was revealed as a criteria to judge right from wrong as a guide to the whole of mankind. Quran says in Surah chapter 39 verse number 41 that we have revealed to the Prophet Thomas de la Salaam, the book to instruct humankind not only to instruct the Arabs or the Muslims or the Westerners to instruct the whole of humankind and prophet promises are seldom was not sent as a messenger to the Muslims or the Arabs alone or to the Western world alone. Quran says in Surah ambia chapter 20
Verse number 107 mama says Naga Illa raw material Allah mean that we have sent the knot but at the mercy towards the words as a mercy to all the creatures as the mercy of the whole of humankind. Quran says in Surah Saba Chapter 34 was 28 mama sanaka illa Prophet elinoz bashira, one zero. Well, I cannot say
that we have sent the knot, but as a universal messenger,
giving them glad tidings and warning them against sin, but most of the human beings do not know. So Islam is not a religion only for the West. It's a religion for the whole of humankind. No wonder if you read the articles of plain truth, which was a reproduction of article that came in reader it is harmonic yearbook 1986, it gave the statistics of the increase of the percentage of major world religions from the year 1934 to 1984. In the span of 50 years, it gave the increase of the percentage of major world religion number one was Islam to 35%.
Christianity, only 47% Today, the fastest growing religion in America, Islam, the fastest growing religion in Europe is Islam. And that the prophecy which has come true, as a last mother says and Goddess Quran in surah, Chapter 61 verse number nine, as well as Retold by chapter number nine was the metallically, who will lead the Arthur solo Buddha,
Medina hack, loose hero, Allah de Nicola, that Allah has sent His messenger with wisdom and region of truth, so that if you prevail, all the other religions
all the the isms or all the other ways of life, whether it be atheism, secularism, Marxism, communism, Western ism, Islam is designed to supersede or master them or overcome them all. While Okajima shikun. However much the machine don't like it, how am I supposed to like it? And the same method for the third time at the different ending in Surah, Fatah chapter 48 was number 28. That one was the Arthur solo pelota
de Nicola, aka Elijah, Allah and His messenger with wisdom, and there is enough truth to that it will prevail over all the other isms or all the ways of life, whether it be Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, communism, secularism, atheism, Western ism, Islam is designed to supersede all mastered them all overcome them all.
And enough is Allah as a witness, Allah has given Shahada that this religion of Islam will prevail throughout the world. I would like to end my talk by giving the translation of the words which I started my talk with, from Surah Al Imran chapathi was dominantly received in the DNA in the slum, the only religion acceptable in the sight of Allah is Islam walkertown and 100 letter bulanan.
Thank you, Dr. Zakir. I'm sure you'll agree with me that you have in front of you, a very exceptional person. Okay, some rules about the questions try to be precise, to the point, try not to be given a commentary, or a lecture.
And if you have more than one questions, please ask one first and then give others a chance and then wait for your turn again. We'll be we'll be fair and cooperative and so that I don't have to interfere much.
If you want to have written questions, you can pass to the front.
Slava, Quranic library, Gatto.
My question is on polygamy.
According to the Quran, it is very clear that polygamy is allowed, yet is very, very serious rules involved the serious justice involved. So when a man commits, I mean, when a man practices polygamy, he's actually putting himself on trial.
While on the other hand, according to the statistics you have quoted for us, polygamy seems to be the only answer out to all the problems that the West is facing today, due to the very high number of females involved. But let's be realistic, every man who practices polygamy or marriage, even more than one wife is actually putting himself on trial. Your comments please.
The sisters also a good question.
And she said that the person can back to the horn to foreign polygyny. polygyny is more proper than polygamy. polygamy includes polygamy and polyandry. polyandry is prohibited in the Quran for reasons different Xuan polygyny is allowed, and rightly said that if a person practices polygyny, he's putting himself to test and that for me when we are doing Trista here in the world. Allah says that we won't only be just past I won't run towards
As a human being the fools who took this test and not knowing the test, this is a good question that if you marry more than money on doing a test, I do agree. If you fail the test, you'd be in problem they do agree. But if you pass, then you get past points also, because polygyny has been allowed in Islam, to protect the woman. But nature. And the Prophet did say that the person is best, who's best to his life. And if you have more than one wife, you have true justice, which is difficult. The statistics are quoted that there are millions of women throughout the world. But the ratio I haven't told you, the ratio is that for every 1000 men in the world, there are 1005 women, that means half
percent, men out of 1000 men, five if they marry more than one half percent. In short, therefore, Allah made the ratio so much hadn't been abundance before the woman and four times more than the men, now only half percent more. And many times it's a given take that a few of the reasons of polygyny, I've told you, there are various other reasons. You know, man is poly genius by nature.
And suppose he has hypo sexual urges, et cetera, which is more in man as compared to the woman, then his option is instead of going to the marketplace, instead of going to having missed this is the other option having more than one wife. So such people is a new thing for himself also, as well as giving protection for the woman who require it. So Islam has realized just it's not all birding anyone, therefore, it's not a force in Islam to marry more than one woman. But if you marry and if you do justice, then inshallah you on the positive point you will get if you marry more than one woman and do justice will do justice is difficult for those people who can do and require it. A
handler, they can do it. Allah will bless them. But those who can't, it's not a first edition, marry, neither most up. But if you do any act and do it properly, Allah is surely going to bless you hope that's the question.
It's very dare I want to ask one question, because as I was listening to your talk, I was no, it was very nice and everything. So I want to ask you a case the eyes I say, I'm a mother, who have children growing up, as you have done so well, in academics, you're a doctor and going around giving lectures and a to have children like you more person like you in this world. What did your parents did not to have a person like you? So you, I want you to give us some advice for mothers like me to know more details to bring up thank you
asked a very good question, that after seeing my talks, becoming a doctor, and he was I started asking, What did my parents do. And we do a very good introduction, and rightly said, If I have to thank anyone in this photo of Allah subhanaw taala the first person is my mother. And my father, and other family members, including my wife, at home, the laughter of my dad in Moldova, it's the full family effort, we will normally ask me, you know, and they tell me that, you know, that if you have to be very good, etc, for family planning, nominee, pupils, I actually am the fifth child of my parents, if my benefit and family planning already have been here, so I thought maybe that is the
question she's going to ask, and hamdulillah she knows that I'm the fifth child and hamdulillah we will think that having more children is a baby hamdulillah it turns out to be buno. So, depending how you bring them and how do you follow,
just naturally, I would say that my parents hamdulillah
they, they let me think freely. They didn't have any particular thing because I you know, follow this religiously. I hamdulillah My parents are religious, Allah didn't force anything on me. Clearly, by default, the kinds of the Quran and the Sunnah
because they want the Quran so nine when a child sees that the parents are on the right very often Alhamdulillah the children emulate the parent. But that's not always the case. We have instances of children or prophets going astray.
It is but as I said, after the help of Allah subhanaw taala It is Allah subhanho wa Taala whose help is most required, but it is required. And as I said, one of the reasons is, as mentioned today, and in branch chapter number three, was the 160 that if Allah helps you, no one can welcome you. If Allah for six you then there is no one who can overcome you then
if Allah for six you No one can help you. So let the believers put the trust in Allah subhanaw taala my parents put that Arsenal last minute Allah, you know the amount of money they spend in making me a doctor. And my mother's desire was my son should be the best doctor and she was wanting me to become someone like Chris Barnard, the person. The first heart transplantation, no question. We're not from South Africa. And since my mother has
admitted under the desire. So we live in I wanted to become a doctor. And I took the medical profession because other thought that and it is not that fit in my view that first had the impression that doctor is the best profession to serve humanity. It is one of the good professions. So that's why I became a doctor and my father was a doctor, a psychiatrist. And so hamdulillah I became a doctor, but then maybe inspired by somebody that I was involved in. And then I found that I used to find pleasure in treating the patient physically. But I got more pleasure multiple time more in treating the patient spiritually, multiple times. And there are 1000s of doctors in the world,
many hundreds of them, who are giving free treatment, I would be another drop in the ocean.
So that's the time I decided to give up my profession and turn as a full time guy and enrich my parents. They supported me, but not my parents would have said we have so much money on you. We had so much high hopes in new etc. Now you do leave the profession five and a half years you spent in medicine. And then
my parents supported me they said no problem. It's in the way of Allah hamdulillah.
I asked my mother, what do you like me to become and I wanted to give up my profession. Would you like me to become like a gamma dad or like Chris Barnard?
She already replied, I would like you to become both together.
But now and ask her that. Would you want me to become an eyelash at that time now? Or would you want me to become like Chris Barnard. She says that one dilation, Emma D that I can sacrifice 1000 Chris Barnett 100 in support of the parents, which helps me because support of the parents and family is very important in
how to bring the children I have given the talk Islam for children system exam for children, that the best teacher for the children is the mother. And I say that the first book that the mother or the parents should give to the child is the Quran.
Quran is the first book and it will remain a guide for your children to the last year of his life.
And but natural parents didn't know that in Arabic is so important learning Arabic as a language. So I gave a talk on Al Quran treated with understanding and showed the importance of therapy. It's important that we should even teach our children Arabic is the language it will help them to understand Islam better and but natural. If anyone stands in the way of Allah, if you strive in the way of Allah subhanho wa Taala Allah says in Surah, Chapter 29, verse 69, if you strive in His way, he will open up your pathways. So you strive and you see to it that if you want what you want, is time the right way. Allah subhana wa Taala will inshallah open up a pathways. So first is faith in
Allah second is striving. Third is technique, Homeland solution.
Good evening. I have a question is about polygamy also, if some if Islam were to have a system like the Zakat, why can't they have another system similar to Zakat to overcome the overpopulation of female in the world? Thank you.
Ask a question that how do they some had a system of socket
to overcome the poverty and crime? Why do they have a similar system for polygamy? Not for it has to do do you shy away?
later on? In polyamory do
no mentions there has been?
So hamdulillah you're very good, striking resemblance. I never thought of it before. You made me think.
No, I learned from the question and therefore I love it. The more I answer the questions, the more my answers improve Alhamdulillah and many times, you know Allah gives the answers on the stage and under la he is the Lamb. And more people ask me a question the moment mind works and hamdulillah I can add to my lecture next time that has occurred is somewhat like Pauline you can compare the hamdulillah it has the solution, how it has fulfilled, you share your wealth, here are some moments where there has been and that solves the problem.
So that the modesty of the other woman is protected.
has always you have mentioned that the West is coming to Islam as promised by Allah in the Quran. And also the the embracing of Islam by by non believers were because of hikma that was given by Allah. But I just want to know in the West, despite the fact that Islam has been
adulterated and condemned, and the behavior of some Muslims were were not Islamic. What is it that that that intrigues the the non Muslims to learn more about Islam? Is it the behavior of some Muslims? Is it the contribution of that in the West? Or what exactly this I mean,
putting aside the the hedaya that Allah has given this people, sister that's a very good question. that in spite the media the Western world is against Islam,
How come Westerners are yet another accepting Islam?
Because much naturally that is important. Jaitley said that's most important. Is it because they are going around? Is it because they're looking at the Muslims in the West and accepting Islam? Or is it something is, since rightly said firstly there.
And I wouldn't say that, looking at the Muslims, all the western will accept Islam.
Libraries of Islam said that it is good that I read the Quran first, before meeting the Muslims. If I had met the Muslims, I wouldn't have accepted Islam. That's his view. That's his view. Maybe the Muslims we met weren't that good. But there are many people in the world who accept Islam only by looking at the Muslim. Therefore I say normally in my talk, people do some toxic good things. Murder Muslim, some people are cheating, they're bribing, they're the wrong things. What I tell them
there are black sheeps in every community, that a black sheep in every community know that we have Muslim duty to bribe Boolean drugs. Many Muslims who I know can drink the non Muslim under the table, no expert in drinking, the media what they do, they pick up these black sheep and the project as exemplary Muslim. They pick up the black sheep. And they portray as exemplary Muslim, as though every Muslim with a cheat, every Muslim is a drunkard. Every Muslim does wrong things. It is the main fault of the media. They're doing for their own reasons so that they fill the coffers.
So I tell them, that on the whole Muslims Alhamdulillah we are the biggest community of teetotallers, who don't in my backyard, we are the community which gives the maximum charity no non Muslim can show us a candle waste. Albright is concerned where modesty is concerned.
where humanity is concerned, where ethics is concerned, Western media picks up black ships and project them as samples. So what I give the example that suppose if you want to judge a car, suppose a new model of Mercedes Benz is in the market, I don't know, which is a new model may be e to 30 of 1998, or whatever it is, and you want to judge how good the car is.
You let the person drive the Mercedes car, who doesn't know how to drive and he bangs up the car. Who will you blame? will blame the car or will you grab the driver? Who will you blame the driver so if you want to judge the car don't look
