The translation of the sermon is available in following languages for which please access the above link.

Urdu English Albanian Arabic Bengali Bosnian Bulgarian French German Malayalam Russian Sindhi Swahili Tamil Turkish

Synopsis English :

Promised Messiah(as) said: In the real sense no one is pious except God Almighty, all high morals and all pieties are in Him in their entirety. As much as one breaks free of one’s nafs (self) and one’s desires and gains nearness to God, one is able to reflect Divine qualities in his person accordingly. Whatever qualities and true refinement one attains is by virtue of Divine nearness. And so it should be since creation is nothing on its own accord.

Promised Messiah(as) said: The reality of Islam is to present one’s neck to God like the sacrificial lamb; to give up one’s own designs and to be devoted to the designs of God and His pleasure; to lose oneself in God and to impose a type of death upon oneself; to be dyed in the personal love of God and to obey Him entirely for the sake of that love; to obtain eyes that see only through Him, and to obtain ears that hear only through Him, and to develop a heart that should be wholly devoted to Him, and to obtain a tongue which would speak only at His command.

The Promised Messiah(as) also explained that some people are satisfied by obtaining something from the government while the source of satisfaction for others is their family, children and acquaintances. However, all this cannot give true satisfaction, in fact as they continue to seek satisfaction from these people their thirst/yearning increases and is never satiated and is ultimately ruinous.

One who surrenders his being to God and devotes his life in His path and is eager to do good will get his reward from the fountain of Divine nearness. They shall have no fear, nor shall they grieve. In other words, one who employs all his faculties in the way of God Almighty and whose word and deed, action and inaction, indeed his whole life is devoted to God, and who occupies himself in doing good, shall be rewarded by God Himself and shall be delivered from fear and grief.

Promised Messiah(as) said: When contempt and persecution reaches its height and the trial that God had willed comes to pass, is when God Almighty’s sense of honour for His friends is stirred, God looks at them and find them the victims and sees that they are persecuted and abused and have been unjustly branded kafir and are hounded by the oppressors. He rises so that He can fulfil His way for them and demonstrate His mercy and help His pious people.

Admonishing/Chastisement: is within “kind” treatment of spouses

Quran 4.34 famously instructs the husband to beat his wife as a third step in getting her to obey him if she is involved in nushoos or ill-conduct.

What qualifies as nushoos? Depends on who you ask.

Hi friends

I give the verses:

[4:35] Men are guardians over women because Allah has made some of them excel others, and because they (men) spend of their wealth. So virtuous women are those who are obedient, and guard the secrets of their husbands with Allah’s protection. And as for those on whose part you fear disobedience, admonish them and leave them alone in their beds, and chastise them. Then if they obey you, seek not a way against them. Surely, Allah is High, Great.
[4:36] And if you fear a breach between them, then appoint an arbiter from his folk and an orbiter from her folk. If they (the arbiters) desire reconciliation, Allah will effect it between them. Surely, Allah is All-Knowing, All-Aware.
[4:37] And worship Allah and associate naught with Him, and show kindness to parents, and to kindred, and orphans, and the needy, and to the neighbour that is a kinsman and the neighbour that is a stranger, and the companion by your side, and the wayfarer, and those whom your right hands possess. Surely, Allah loves not the proud and the boastful,
[4:38] Who are niggardly and enjoin people to be niggardly, and conceal that which Allah has given them of His bounty. And We have prepared for the disbelievers an humiliating punishment,
[4:39] And for those who spend their wealth to be seen of men, and believe not in Allah nor the Last Day. And whoso has Satan for his companion, let him remember that an evil companion is he.
[4:40] And what harm would have befallen them, if they had believed in Allah and the Last Day and spent out of what Allah has given them? And Allah knows them full well.
[4:41] Surely, Allah wrongs not any one even by the weight of an atom. And if there be a good deed, He multiplies it and gives from Himself a great reward. … 4&verse=34

Quran favors men and women living in families and respecting the bond of love they have mutually bound themselves with; Quran does not favor non-family single living and or the ascetic life as does the Christianity. Quran’s approach as mentioned above is pro-family and pro-life while that of the Atheists Agnostics and their collaborators Christians here is not that.

So, what is bad if one admonishes are chastises the spouse and saves the family structure for good of the family and children and the society.

The West has forgotten the Role Model of Jesus and Mary; neither Jesus had any girlfriends nor did Mary have any boyfriends. Quran wants that the West should adopt Mary as a Role Model of Women, instead of the Celebrity Culture; though popular but is unnatural.

If a woman has any similar grievance against her husband; she could go to the court.

I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran.


Jesus and Mary of Quran vs. the Celebrity Culture

Jesus and Mary of Quran vs. the Celebrity Culture

Hi the good friends here

The West must love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran as their Social role Model to save the family institution- a natural bond, instead of following the Celebrity Culture so rampant in West perhaps mostly promoted by the confused Atheists Agnostic having no revealed Book or a natural system for life.

It is true that the reason oriented and enlightened Christians find no rational hero in the mythical concepts of Jesus- being son of god or god, and Mary- as an intercession, presented by cunning Paul and Church and the sinful scribes; and hence they leave Christianity silently .The Celebrity culture hardly promotes any family bond for sure.

The Church and the Christians should therefore present Jesus and Mary of Quran as a role model to salvage all such people.

This is also useful for the Atheists to become pro-life.

I love Jesus and Mary as mentioned in Quran

Hi friend Trojan

I don’t mind if you laugh; that would refresh you and it ‎‎would be a good thing for your health.‎

The Creator of this Universe is one; God, Allah, YHWH etc ‎‎are names of the same Creator given by different nations ‎‎for Him. In a way these are synonyms. The Creator did not ‎‎leave the human beings after creating them; he wanted to ‎‎converse with them and provide guidance to them through ‎‎perfect ment called Messengers Prophets, in my opinion.‎

This is what I understand; and this is what the Second ‎‎Coming 1835-1908 has explained in his book “Message of ‎‎Peace”:‎

I think now you understand.‎

All human beings are just like a family; every one of them ‎is to be loved and noone ‎should be hated.‎

Is Islam the true religion of GOD?

Hi friend Ani

Yes, Islam is the true religion of God; but that does not ‎mean that other revealed religion were not truthful. God ‎Allah YHWH sent the warners or Messengers Prophets to all ‎nations of the world for guidance; this is very much ‎mentioned in Quran, in my opinion. Quran is not a book of ‎names, so Quran has not mentioned them by names; so we can ‎deduce from that that Krishna,Buddha,Zoroaster, Socrates, ‎Moses,Jesus etc were all perfect men sent by God Allah YHWH ‎for guidance of human beings. They were the truthful ‎persons; and so were their Revelations truthful in origin.‎

All human beings are just like a family; every one of them ‎is to be loved and noone to be hated.‎

‎“Apostasy has no death penalty”‎

September 25, 2009‎

Paarsurrey says:

Hi friend AllahuAkbar

I agree with you that there is no death penalty for ‎apostates in ‎Quran/Islam/Muhammad; and one cannot name a ‎single ‎individual who was killed by Quran/Islam/Muhammad to ‎coerce ‎to Islam.‎

So, we can defend Quran/Islam/Muhammad in this connection ‎‎very truly; but we cannot and should not defend any wrong ‎‎doing Muslim politicians, rulers etc of the past or ‎‎present. If they did any wrong then they were sinners; ‎‎their case is with God Allah YHWH.‎

We will only defend Quran/Islam/Muhammad.‎

All human beings are just like a family; every one of them ‎‎is to be loved and noone is to be hated.‎

Teachings of Quran/Islam/Muhammad-Peace with the fellow human beings and ‎submission to the will of God Allah YHWH- the Creator‎

Hi friend huntingnasrullah

Paarsurrey says:

I agree with you that the root meaning of Islam is “peace” and “submission”. Peace with ‎the fellow human beings and submission to the will of God Allah YHWH- the Creator. ‎This is the most natural way; and is also the divine purpose of human evolution.This can ‎be best achieved, in my opinion, if all the natural and evolved human faculties are ‎maximized to the excellence; the temporal, moral and spiritual faculties are uplifted. ‎Concentration on one faculty while ignoring the others could disturb the natural and ‎divine balance of humanity.‎

All human beings are just like one family; all must be loved and no one to be ignored and ‎hated.‎
