Today, today, the Muslims are getting backward in science. You know why? The Europeans are being advanced. You know why? The Muslims are becoming backwards because the are going away from the Holy Qur'an. They are going away from their religion.
And do you know why the Europeans are getting advanced? They too are going away from their religion. The Europeans [applause] are also getting advanced [inaudible] they are going away from their religion. The Muslims, they are going backwards because they are going away from religion.
I would request, the Muslims [inaudible], as were non-Muslims. They are people in the Qur'an. Why don't we read the Qur'an, with understanding? Why don't we point out the verses? We have only kept the Qur'an kissing and keeping on top that's all. The Qur'an was not meant to just be kissed and kept on top. It should be implemented in your daily life.
If you implement the Qur'an in your daily life, read it with understanding, insha'allah again we shall be on top of the world. I hope that answers your question.
