Explaining Hijab, Beard and Jesus to non-Muslims have and will insyaallah be quite simple. The same meanwhile couldn’t be said about 9/11 and Palestine.
Sheikh Yusuf Estes – Just Ask Islam – Explaining Islam to Non-Muslims.
“They try to open this up as a subject and try to ask you: “well what do you say about suicide bombers?” That’s easy.
Does Islam allow us to commit suicide? Yes or no? No. Anybody who commits suicide goes to hell forever, true or false? Absolutely true. Whether it’s from a bomb or a knife or whatever. The Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him) said: “Whoever kills himself with a knife, he will be in the hell fire stabbing himself with a knife, over and over and over.” So anybody that’s a suicide person is going to go to hell. So get that in your mind. Then they say, “yes, what about in Palestine?” Ok, this means you have conditions in the question. Have you ever been to Palestine? And the person will say, “well no.” I haven’t either. So what do you want me to talk about? Something I don’t know about. I’m not a journalist, I’m not allowed to do that!
stay away from a subject of what’s going on in Kashmir, Palestine, or Iraq, because number one, you’re not going to change peoples mind about the stuff they see on the news everyday.
Don’t come out here and start talking about the conspiracy theories of 9/11. You say, “I don’t believe Muslims had anything to do with it. How did they find Mohammad and his passport at the bottom of those towers and it wasn’t even dirty. Yet those planes blew up everything and it was so hot that the building collapsed but it couldn’t burn the passport?” Don’t do that. Because that won’t help your case. You need to tell people about one thing: “La ilaha illal-Lah.”
