is Tang vamos is an engineering student from k USD, I must say thank you very much for the work you are doing. And I wish you all the best in your mission. Please in your lecture, you made mention that you believe in Jesus Christ, that He was the son born mela Crossley. He gave life to the debt. And I must see, all the religions say man must die once before they say judgment.

00:00:33--> 00:00:53

If Jesus gave life to this man wasn't just to show off because the man is no more leaving again. So why should you says give life to the person so that a person will die again? mean the person died twice? So was it just to show off? Or what was it? Or he's still living? He didn't die again.

00:00:57--> 00:01:14

The weather? That's a good question that we Muslims believe that Jesus Christ peace be upon him give rise to the dead. So if Jesus Christ peace be upon him gave life to the dead a person dies only once. So Did Jesus Christ be upon and give life to the dead to show off by didn't do it?

00:01:15--> 00:01:35

I agree with you a person dies only once. Quran says inshallah Imran chapter three verse Psalm 135 cool enough, since I've gotten more, every soul shall have a taste of that. And Quran faith, Jesus Christ peace be upon him said Bismillah wake up in the name of Allah and He gave life to the dead. The Bible says that.

00:01:36--> 00:01:47

But all the miracles done by all the prophets of God, right from start till Prophet Muhammad Salah Salem, they were done by Almighty God.

00:01:48--> 00:02:08

They were not done by the Prophet himself. But they were done by Almighty God, when Moses please be upon him when he parted the sea. That miracle was done by Almighty God, to prove to the followers that He is a messenger of God. And you can see this when you read the Bible. And when you know, once Jesus Christ, please be upon him.

00:02:09--> 00:02:20

When the person dies, and two sisters, go to Jesus gasp and tell him that, please save my brothers. So we pray to Almighty God,

00:02:21--> 00:02:37

that you listen to me he cries, you are the one who can save him. let this cup pass away from me. He is praying to Almighty God, that we are asking God to give back life to that man.

00:02:39--> 00:03:25

Jesus Christ peace be upon him is praying to Almighty God, that when the life was given to the dead, it was given by Almighty God. So all the miracles that were done, they were done by Almighty God. And Prophet Jesus peace be upon him was a messenger. So all the miracles that Jesus casts peace be upon him did Moses Peace be upon Did Prophet Muhammad peace be upon did these miracles are signs of Almighty God given so that his followers will understand he is a messenger of God. And this is mentioned in the Bible, in the book of Acts, chapter number two was number 22. Listen to this Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God amongst you by wonders and miracles and signs which God did by

00:03:25--> 00:03:42

him and will attest to it. Man, it mentioned book of Acts, chapter number two was number 22 II Men of Israel, listen to this Jesus of Nazareth, a man approved of God amongst you, miracles and wonders and signs which God did by him and your witness to it.

00:03:43--> 00:04:05

That means all these miracles God did, just to prove that he was a messenger of God, that doesn't make that person God. That doesn't make that person superior. So all the miracles that were done by messengers were done by Almighty God as a sign to show that he's a messenger of God. Hope that answers the question. I mean, the essence died twice.

00:04:06--> 00:04:44

That person died twice. Miracle means exception to the rule. And he says Jesus asked God for something in the Bible that God didn't also do. Sorry, the night before Jesus was crucified in the Bible, he says, went into the garden and prayed so that God could have changed things you could see the Bible says that He sweat even on the clothes, you could see that this wasn't Wellington. But he said God didn't do that for Jesus at that time. So I don't see it. Like Jesus who said, Oh, come out of death. Then God did the day by this I went into the garden pray God didn't do

00:04:45--> 00:04:50

which is not consistent in in Jesus life, because not all the things in his life he was able to do

00:04:51--> 00:04:59

in the life that I mean, he asked God in the Garden the day before he was crucified 14 to 10 but

00:05:00--> 00:05:42

Nothing happened. He fulfilled that in what God said. First I'll answer your first question then I'm gonna do your second. Your first question is, did the man die twice? Yes. The miracles are things which are outside the natural thing. When Moses peace be upon him party in the sea, for the sea to party is not natural, it becomes a miracle. Correct to similarly when Jesus gave life to the dead, a human being dies only months, when Jesus gave life to the dead, he comes back to life, miracle, Almighty God. For example, a human being is born from a father and mother, right? Yes, but Jesus Christ peace be upon him was born miraculously without men intervention, it's a miracle from God.

00:05:43--> 00:06:01

That does not mean Jesus God. Some Christians are no no, no see Jesus Christ. No father, so is God. So the reply to that is given in Surah Imran chapter three verse number 59 In masala ASA in the late comers allowed them to rub some makalah confer upon the similar dude of Jesus.

00:06:02--> 00:06:14

In front of Allah is like Adam peace be upon him. He was created from dust and set bn it was if you say that Jesus is God, because he had no farther than Adam peace be upon him with a greater God, he had no mother no father

00:06:15--> 00:06:17

is excuse me, I'm not a Christian.

00:06:19--> 00:06:23

answered your question. If you ask a question, you should wait for the reply.

00:06:25--> 00:06:30

When you ask a question, you wait for the reply. After I finish the reply, then you can talk.

00:06:32--> 00:06:54

You have to follow rules and regulation. Okay, sorry. So when Jesus Christ peace be upon him with the will of God gave life to the dead, it was a miracle, that person will die twice, coming to Prophet Jesus peace be upon him. you rightly said in the Bible, Jesus Christ, peace be upon him before he was put on the cross, He sweats and he prays to God, let this cup pass away from me.

00:06:56--> 00:06:59

He plays what happens, God sends him.

00:07:00--> 00:07:06

God saves him when he can give life to the dead to a common man. And when he cries to God, can God save him?

00:07:08--> 00:07:10

God saved him that the reason he doesn't die on the cross,

00:07:12--> 00:07:29

according to the Bible, Jesus Christ peace be upon him did not die on the cross. And I will prove it to you. If you read the Gospel of Matthew, chapter number 12, verse number 38. People come and ask Jesus Christ, please be upon him that please show signs and miracles. So Jesus Christ, please be upon him faith.

00:07:30--> 00:07:32

Brother, will you listen to me?

00:07:34--> 00:07:42

Do you understand English? And we're asking the question I'm giving the reply again, are coming in between, please please, I was asked, I have to say I have looked at your was Christ really?

00:07:45--> 00:07:49

But if you knew you wouldn't have asked this question No, by my brother, let me finish the answer.

00:07:51--> 00:07:54

If you have heard my question, you will have become a Muslim by now.

00:07:55--> 00:08:05

If you would have heard all my lectures, by now you have been giving the Shahada. I respect your speeches a lot I respect. I respect your lectures and I like it.

00:08:06--> 00:08:43

Later on, my respects are completely turned. First, I'll give the reply. If Jesus Christ peace be upon him cried to Almighty God. One day before he was put on the cross, what did God do? God saved him. The Gospel of Matthew chapter number 12, verse number 38. To 40. When people say she was assigned Jesus Christ be upon him face, even an adulterous generation thinking the after a sign, no sign shall be given to you but the sign of Jonah For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the fish, social the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. Now, every Christian knows what is the sign of Jonah. You go to book of Jonah, one and a half sides.

00:08:44--> 00:09:23

You know that Almighty God asked prophet Jonah to go to Joppa and deliver the message. But Prophet Jonah thinks that the people of Jehovah will not listen to the message. He goes to Nineveh now when he's going to deliver by the ship, a storm comes at sea. And it was the superstition at that time that if a storm comes it's because someone had disobeyed the master. So they normally draw lots Who's the one who disobeyed the master? So Jonah being a prophet, I've already volunteers that I'm the one who distributes the master. So because the volunteers they don't have to break his arm or leg or tie his leg, he volunteers so they throw him overboard, know when they throw Jonah overboard?

00:09:23--> 00:09:24

Was he dead or alive?

00:09:25--> 00:09:44

He was alive. According to the Bible. I'm asking you're going to Bible on your knowledge in a storm, when a human being is thrown into a sea, normal human being. When he's thrown into the raging storm in the sea. He ought to die. As far as John is concerned. Don't novels that are life.

00:09:45--> 00:09:59

Dead or alive when he was thrown into the sea in the storm. Dead or alive. He was alive according to the Bible alive according to the Bible. Very good. A fish come then gobbles them up. If a fish eats up gobbles a man you are to die while junetta

00:10:00--> 00:10:01

life and lifestyle.

00:10:02--> 00:10:21

Miracle after miracle after miracle, he was thrown you alive in a raging storm here to die does not die alive, a fish component gobbles them up your to die does not die alive, a miracle after miracle. Three days and three nights, the fish takes him around the sea, or the suffocation of man or to die, was wounded, alive, alive according

00:10:23--> 00:10:25

to the Bible. Now not only doctors are kidney,

00:10:27--> 00:10:50

Miracle after miracle after miracle, from the belly of the fish, Prophet Jonah prays to Almighty God, while He was praying was he did alive, alive according to the Bible, I live according to the Bible, a miracle after miracle after miracle after miracle. After three days, the fish vomits him out on the show that are alive, alive, according to the Bible, so according to the Bible, it's a miracle after miracle after miracle after miracle.

00:10:52--> 00:11:26

Jesus Christ will be upon him said, no sign shall be given to you, but the sign of Jonah for as donor was three days and three nights in the belly of the fish, so shall the Son of Man be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth. So if you read the Bible, if you understand the Bible, Jesus guys peace be upon him was put on the cross on Friday. It was known that the Jews don't crucify on the Sabbath day on Saturday. So before it became fun said they were in hurry to get him down. Now when they get him down, they put him in the subculture, and this applecart

00:11:27--> 00:11:29

according to the Bible was decent life.

00:11:30--> 00:11:46

He was Jesus Christ, please be upon him dead or alive, in wear on their clothes or in their tomb, in the tomb, in their tomb, they say he resurrected according to their Bible. Brother, I'm asking you a question, man, Jesus Christ, peace be upon him was put in the sepulchre.

00:11:48--> 00:12:16

I'm asking the question was Jesus Christ peace be upon him according to the Bible, dead or alive? They say he died on the cross and he was asking you in this applecart. I'm asking you, what's your name? You said I stay in Ghana. I'm asking your name. You're saying I live in Ghana? Rather, do you understand English? I'm asking a simple question in English in this applecart in the to do this case, please be upon him or dead or outside? I'm not bothered in the to modern life. I'm not at least I don't know.

00:12:19--> 00:12:26

Brother, what are you? I don't know. Unless you tell him if you're not a Christian, what are you? I'm not religious, I'm still looking for religion. All right.

00:12:28--> 00:13:04

So do you believe in the Bible to be the word of God? I don't believe in why should I quote the Bible? I don't believe if you don't believe Bible to be the word of God, I'll go to Quran which is the word of God. Even I don't believe I believe the Word of God. To me also, if you don't believe Bible is the Word of God, even I don't believe Bible is the Word of God. There are in the Bible, some portion which can be the word of God. There are words of prophets there about the historians, there are contradictions, there is pornography, but let me complete bouncer and you're right, according to the Bible, Jesus Christ, peace be upon him, he was alive to that the reason when you're

00:13:04--> 00:13:28

asking me from the Bible, that before he was put on the cross, He prays to Almighty God, so God saves him, because he prays to Almighty God, he does not die on the cross, He is God down alive. And in the Doom either life, he fulfills the prophecy of the sign of Jonah, that the reason Jesus Christ peace be upon him, wasn't crucified. He did not die on the cross. He was saved. And Almighty God raised him upon life.

00:13:29--> 00:14:10

Brother, do you believe? Do you believe there is one God? I believe, mashallah, I believe Do you believe that Jesus is God? I don't believe because in my African spirituality, I believe in God. But the concept of God that is brought to me is what I don't believe very good. Even I don't believe Jesus God. Brother, one more question. Third question. Do you believe Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger of God? Yeah, historically, I know of Muhammad as a state. No, do you believe that Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger of God? I know he's a messenger of God. Mashallah. So if you believe God is one, and if you believe Muhammad, is the messenger of God be there Muslim? No, but you see

00:14:16--> 00:14:56

know the minimum two criteria that tonight the minimum two criteria required for any human being to be a Muslim is he has to believe that Almighty God is one. And there is no one worthy of worship except Almighty God, which you believe. Yeah. And the second is that Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger of that God Yeah. So if you believe in these two things, you become a minimum level of Muslim you can become more and more practicing later on. For example, if you want admission, if you take admission into a school, suppose the school in St. Peter school, the school I studied from you become a saint peter, right. That means you become a student of that school. Now, whether you went

00:14:56--> 00:14:59

first standard second standard third standard 10 standard that is it.

00:15:00--> 00:15:05

So if you take admission, you are a student of that school. So for anyone to be a Muslim,

00:15:06--> 00:15:36

minimum two things that he should do is, he should agree God is one and no one deserves worship except Almighty God. And second is you should believe that Prophet Muhammad is the messenger. If you believe in these two things, then you become a minimum level of Muslim then you can get more knowledge you can keep on becoming better and better and better. You can go first 102nd standard third standard 10 standard bachelor masters PhD that's later so according to me you're a Muslim

00:15:37--> 00:15:39

I'm on Africa conscious been on it sorry. I'm a conscious being on it. You're conscious of unnatural in any NHL human pin on it? Yes, you are a human being that believes Almighty God is one Yeah. Believe Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger of Almighty God. Yeah. So according to me are Muslim. Okay, that's from your view. That's all that is. My view only Yeah. And even from your view, because you believe in God. Muslim means a person who submits his will to God. What is the meaning of Muslim? I told in my talk,

00:16:12--> 00:16:41

anyone who submits his will to Almighty God and acquires peace by submitting a will to God is a Muslim. So you have submitted your will to God you believe there is one God correct I believe and you believe Prophet Muhammad is the Messenger Yeah, please minimum Muslim you can be more practicing by following better better things other things about Almighty God but the minimum thing that you should follow up Almighty God believe is one and believe Prophet Muhammad is the messenger I believe you have just entered the fold of Islam
