Dr. Zakir Naik and the controversy




By Md. Ali, TwoCircles.net

Renowned Islamic scholar and preacher Dr. Zakir Naik angered a section of Sunnis and Shias by his statement to a private TV channel that a Muslim should seek help only from Allah and no one else, not even the Prophet.

Angered by his statement a section of the community reportedly approached the home minister of Maharashtra RR Patil and demanded a ban on the Islamic conference which he is organizing between November 14 and 24 in Mumbai.

The 43 year old medical practitioner told reporters that by saying this he has not done any thing against the principles of Islam. Whatever he has said is essential of "Tauhid" which is the soul of "Imaan". A big section of Muslims across the world believe that Only Allah is the All Mighty and worthy of worship and help should be sought only from him and no one else he added.

Dr. Naik enjoys a fan following across the world because of his critical analysis of Islam and his knowledge on comparative religion. He is the founder-president of Islamic Research Foundation (IRF) and also runs Peace TV, an Islamic television.

He travels across the world giving speeches and lectures on Islam and comparative religion. A big section of Muslim across the world appreciates his efforts to clear misconceptions about Islam through his lectures and talks.

There was another Fatwa against him by some Shia clergy of UP. Last Friday Lucknow based Mufti Abul Irfan Mian Firangi Mahali issued a fatwa against Dr. Naik describing him as a kafir (agnostic). The fatwa recommends that Dr. Naik be ex-communicated from Islam.

The Mufti pointed out that Dr. Naik supports Osama Bin Laden and calls upon the Muslim youths to become terrorists. He also criticized Dr. Naik for his alleged glorification of Yazeed who killed Imam Hussein the maternal grand son of the Prophet and a person considered holy and respectable by the Shias across the world.

Dr. Naik on the other hand defended himself and clarified that he has never supported either terrorism or Osama. He added that he has always been saying that all those who kill innocents are terrorists. He pointed out that people usually misquote his statements from the speeches he delivered in past.

For instance, he pointed out that the actual statement goes like this that "all those who kill innocents are terrorists. So if the USA kills innocents, it doesn't have the right to call Osama a terrorist unless it owns up its own crime."

On the accusation of instigating Muslims to become terrorists he clarified that he had said Muslims should become terrorists in the sense that they should strike terror in the hearts of criminals and anti-socials but again the statement has been misquoted he added.


Zakir Naik on Taliban and Osama Bin Laden

Last year he was center of an international controversy by saying radi Allaho anho (may Allah be pleased with him) after taking Yazid's name, a traditional prayer reserved for the companions of the Prophet Mohammad.

Last month Dr. Naik was supposed to deliver a series of public lectures in Allahabad and Lucknow. But Shia groups started protesting against Dr. Naik. Soon the administration had to stop the lectures citing law and order problem.

It is not the case that Dr. Naik hasn't got any support on this issue. Many Muslim organizations have come in his support. All-India Sunni Board and Sheikh Abdul Qadir Jilani Foundation came to defend him saying that Dr. Naik is one of the most respected scholars and doing an excellent work through his efforts to clear the misconceptions about Islam.

Dr. Naik who was born in Mumbai on October 18, 1965 is a medical doctor by profession. The website of Islamic Research Foundation describes him as "international orator on Islam and Comparative Religion. Dr. Zakir Naik clarifies Islamic viewpoints and clears misconceptions about Islam, using the Qur'an, authentic Hadith and other religious Scriptures as a basis, in conjunction with reason, logic and scientific facts."

He has also been appreciated by his efforts to engage in inter religious dialogue.

He has given hundreds of public lectures on Islam and comparative religion. He has also authored many books including Replies To The Most Common Questions asked By Non-Muslims, Qur'an and Modern Sciences- Compatible Or incompatible, Concepts of God in Major Religions, Islam and Terrorism, Women's Right in Islam- Protected Or subjugated, among others.

They have launched a jihad against Dr Naik because thier shops are closed..halvakhor molvis

Re Dr. Zakir Naik

I wonder who is behind Dr. Zakir Naik to finance 2 Satellite TV Channels. He started spreading Islam by virtue of his excellent skil in presenting a subject reciting some verses from Holy Quran. But I believe Muslims will be disillusioned one day. Muslims around the world- both Sunnis and Shias in one voice call Yazid a Kafir but Zakir Naik uses most respectful words after his name only reserved for companions of Holy Prophet Sallalahu Alaihi Wasallam. He is following the path of Dr. Rashad Khalifa of Egypt. This satan did cunning things to mislead Muslims. Greatest Satan Iblis is more knowledgeable than most of the wisest men of Islam. Therefore judging man like Zakir Naik for his knowledge of Islam as a great Muslim may be misleading. He may be a great satan in disguise. Let time uncovers the truth. I apprehend jewish hands behind.

Anti Yazid ( Barelvi and Shias)

I think there are lot of Anti Zakir Naiks in India and abroad right now.. They were running thier shops and all thier shops got closed. now no income from Dargah and mosques.

They are jealous with Dr Naik"s popularity mainly Barelvis and Shias..They hate everyone either Jamat E islami or Tablighi Jamaat.

Dr Tahirul Qadri from pakistan is the leading player in anti zakir naik propoganda..

I think these shia and barelvi molvis financed by Hindutva organizations (RSS..) and jewish group not Dr Naik.

You asked who is financing Peace TV and tell me who is financing Dargah of Langde Shah, Loole Shah in different parts of India. who is doing marketing of Ajmer Shareef and Nizamuddin Dargah..??

Its easy to point out mistakes in other but people dont see in thier own circle what they are doing..

people are not interested in controversy right now..people like Dr Naik and they love him

even non muslims.

if you dont want to listen him dont listen him who is forcing you..

Howz the situiation in Bangaladesh? no flood?

Dr Zakir Naik is visiting there also very soon

Allah Hafiz

Yazid (R.A.)

PROPHET MUHAMMAD (SAW)THE

PROPHET MUHAMMAD (SAW)THE SOUL OF ISLAM,
I DONT KNOW WHO IS ZAKIR NAIK, TAHIR QADRI, BARELVIS, SHIAS, JAMATIS, AHLE HADEES AND MANY THOUSANDS MORE AND WHATEVER THEY SAID IS MEANINGLESS TO ME IF IT IS OUT OF CONTEXT FROM THE TEACHING OF OUR BELOVED PROPHET AND THE REVELATION BROUGHT BY HIM IN THE NAME QURAN..
ALLAH SAYS IN THE HOLY QURAN " WARA FANA LAKA ZIKRAK" - I WILL RAISE YOUR ZIKR IN TO THE HIGHEST..
IN THE EVENT OF MIRAAJ SHARIF, NARRATORS NARRATES THAT WIHIN A SECOND OF TIME PROPHET WENT THERE AND RETURN BACK HOW IT IS POSSIBLE...
BUT QURAN SAYS SOMETHING ELSE WHAT ONE HOUR IS FOR YOU IS THOUSAND HOURS IS FOR ALLAH AS TIME IS NOT FIXED EVERYWHERE IT IS A RELATIVE MEASUREMENT WHICH IS FURTHER PROVED BY ALBERT EINSTIEN ALSO.
TAKING A SIMPLE EXAMPLE, FROM A CLOCK IF I TAKE OUT THE CELL IT WILL STOP WHEREVER IT WAS AND AGAIN IF WE PUT THE CELL INSIDE THE CLOCK IT WILL START WORKING BUT FROM ITS PREVIOS STATE I.E CELL IS THE SOUL OF CLOCK SIMILARLY OUR PROPHET IS THE SOUL OF OUR RELIGION WHEN HE WENT TO THE HEAVEN TO MEET ALLAH THE WORLD STOP FOR A WHILE AND AGAIN WHEN HE CAME BACK TO THE WORLD, IT STARTED AGAIN BUT FROM ITS PREVIOUS STATE ... IF ANY BODY UNAWARE OF THIS EVENT THEN GO THROUGH THE RELEVANT HADEETH AND QURANIC VERSE RELATED TO THIS EVENT..
COMMING TO THE POINT NOW IF ANY PERSON IS DAMAGING THE IMAGE OF PROPHET AND HIS HOLY PROGENY BY PRAISING THEIR ENEMY IN PUBLIC IT IS NOTHING BUT DEGRADING THE TEACHING OF ISLAM..
I AM NOT GETTING THE POINT OF SAYING "PEACE BE UNTO HIM" TO YAZID WHILE ONE OF SO CALLED AALIM MR. ASRAR AHMED DEGRADING THE STATUS OF HAZRAT ALI BY FABRICATING SOME EVENTS OF PAST AND MERGE IT WITH THE NAME OF HAZRAT ALI(RA), WE ALL KNOW THE FOUR CALIPHATES OF ISLAM ARE THE PILLARS OF OUR RELIGION, NOW IF ANY PERSON SAYS THIS KIND OF FALSE THINGS (WHICH I INTENTIONALLY NOT MENTIONING HERE)RELATING TO THOSE PERSONALITIES, WHAT MIGHT BE THE INTENTION OF THAT PERSON .
THERE MAY BE TWO REASONS
1. THEY MIGHT WANT TO DEGRADE THOSE PERSONALITIES OR
2. THEY WANT TO ADVERTISE ALCOHAL IN PUBLIC
SAME CASE IS HERE WITH MR. NAIK, MAY BE HE WANT TO PRESENT OUR RELIGION IN THE CHARACTER OF YAZID OR HE WANT TO DEGRADE THE HOLY PERSONALITIES OF ISLAM WHICH WE CALLED THE PROGENY OF RASOOL (SAW).
BROTHER YOU ARE UNAWARE OF THE FACT THAT THE MUSLIMS WHICH IS SPREAD IN INDIA IS JUST THE OBLIGATION OF KHWAJA MOINUDDIN CHISTI, NOT OF MR. NAIK AND ISRAR AHMED. YOU CANNOT DENY THIS FACT THAT IF ALLAH WANT TO BESTOW ANY RANK OR POSITION TO ANY PERSON ONE CANNOT DENOUNCE THEM BY THEIR EVIL INTENTIONS...
IF YOU LOVE SO MUCH YAZID I SINCERELY PRAY TO ALLH THAT KEEP YOU WITH YAZID AFTER YOUR DEATH AND KEEP US WITH THE HOLY GRAND CHILD OF PROPHET HAZRAT IMAM HUSSAIN, AND I HOPE YOU MUST KNOW THIS HADEETH OF RASOOLLAH (SAW), HASAN AND HUSSAIN ARE THE LEADERS OF THE YOUTH IN JANNAT...

it means only you are muslim

it means only you are muslim in world because you are saying yazid rahmatullah alaaih
barailvis and shias are kafir because both goes to qabr.
i will give you fatwa about you, you are munafiq because you understand yazid rahmatullah alaaih. after 1400 years munafiqin prove yazid rahmatullah alaaih.
Allah save muslims.

Re: Anti Yazid ( Barelvi and Shias)

Dear Brother,

Let me clarify something regarding Yazid.
First of all he was not a Sahabi so in my humble opinion it is not correct to write Razial-Allahu-Anhum.
If you go by the conventional definition, He was a Taa-bayee as he had seen and lived with Sahaba Raziallahu Anhum in condition of faith.

Now the real question is wether he was a pious, religious person or not, Wallahu-Alam.

The things which are well known and very clear is his ascent to the thrown of Khilafah was not inaccordence of Shariah regulations.
There was a deal/agreement between Hazrat Ameer Ma-awiyah R.A. and Hazrat Hasan R.A. after the death of Hazrat Ali R.A. As per the agreement, the next Khalifa will be from Banu-Hashim. As we all know that Hazrat Hasan and Hazrat Hussain R.A. were from Banu-Hashim and Ameer Maa-wiyah R.A. and Yazid Ibn Maa-wiyah were from Banu-Umayyah. This incident was the begining of Malukiat (Kingdom).

Its a different story that later on they had some good ruler and of course one of them is Hazrat Umar Bin Abdul Aziz (Rahmatullah Alaih) and most of the scholars agreed that his Khilafah was on the path of Khulafa-e-Rashedeen(The First Four).

By no means one can justify the Shahadah of Hazrat Hussain R.A. and the ruling period of Yazid will be considered as Khilafah.

But its better to avoid these kind of controversial subjects, names and focus on some constructive discussion.
This is an endless debate and will never end before the arrival of Imam Mahdi R.A. as his Khilafah will be on Minhaj-e-Nabuwwah.

I will recommend the readers to read a book by Shia scholar, Dr. Moosa Musavi, " Maslak-e-Aetedaal".
A very good research work to understand the difference between Shia/Sunni and how all these differences have been developed.
(I am Sunni but this book is realy good and had cleared most of my doubts and misconceptions).

Regards.

U will be always with yazid.Ameen!!

I pray to Almighty allah that please put this person into the the place where Yazid goes and put me in the place where Imama Hussain goes on the day of Kiyamah....I say Ameen ......Now its yours turn to say Ameen

Salam to Bangladeshi brother and his anti zakir naik statements

Brother
Assalam U Alaikum
Give me straight answer?
Are you shia/Barelvi? I need a direct and straight answer?
what is the main reason behind anti zakir naik feelings?
leave everything.how was your shab e barat celeberation and Eid Miladunnabi?
which Dargah you are visiting soon? Langde shah or Loole shah? I have seen these kind of sufis in every village in India
Believe me Dargah business is the most attractive business in India. I sugges you should invest in this..You will get two things 1. money 2. uneducated crowd of muslims coming in Buses in trains
RSS/VHP/Shiv Sena and Bajrang Dal monkeys also visit these dargahs.
Why dont u run these Dargah business more professionally like MNCs do believe me..more people will be joining. and spend some money in TV and news paper advertisement..set up some offices with internet in every cities
Since Zakir naik came in market.Dargah and sufi business is going down..we need people like you to uplift this business and halwakhor molvis also from Asia.

Allah Hafiz brother..

yazidiat murdabad

if zakir naik is doing right thing than you people have to choose one thing either yazid or hussain(A.s).

controversy of Dr.Zakir Naik

Dear Brother / Sister,
You have given a vey harsh statement here by asking people to choose between Dr.Zakir Naik and Hazrat Imam Hussain (pbuh), this matter is very sensitive we have to leave clarifications to ulmah and i am sure Dr.Zakir Naik is well educated and sensible person to give the clarification on this case.If a person has done 9 good things upon 10 and if by mistake or if does 1 mistake so he should be given every right to give his clarification on that, you cannot just condemn person like Dr. Zakir Naik who is doing dawah doing work for religion spreadiong ISLAM, clearing misconceptions regarding Islam with reference of QURAN and HADITH.
There are 10 fingers raised when you do 1 mistake and people forget the thousand good deeds that person has done well Allah knows best, and he will support people on HAQ.

Jazak Allah.

Salam,

My brothers all your question can be answered if we all read and believe in Quran. We are muslims and we need to stay united. All i am going to say Imam Hussein A.S, Grandson of Prophet Muhammad S.A.W, was brutely maryterd with relatives in karabala. If you want to know if its the truth, it has been said that Muslim becomes a rightful muslim with his charaterisitics. And today Alhudulilah, Muslims and Non Muslims praising to Hussien A.s bravery and learning from his scarifice in the way Of ALlah every where in the world. EVEN NON MUSLIMS COME TO MUHARRUM MAJILIS TO PAY REPSECT TO HUSSIAN A.S TO Show ALLAh that they Love Hussien. iF it was a political war then why was Imam Hussein lied and taken to Karbala, when Imams were areadly been marginlized after prophet ( people followed them, they never forced people to follow). Becuase people were going towards Hussien thats why, or yazid who Barely folloowed any islamic laws was hungry because their ansestor was proven wrong.

May ALlAh Help ALl of Us

Re Dr. Zakir Naik

Dewan G Ahmed

Dr. Zakir is a great person he is doing excellent job. He is absolutely right what he said about Hazrat Yazid (peace be upon him). Karbala was purely a political war that has no religious significance at all. Some un-Islamic forces created Karabla a religious event and divided the Muslim into Shia and Sunni. We Muslim now must reject this kind of division and unit our Umma.

M. Kalim

falsehood, by its nature,bound to perish

Some people are afraid and some are jealous of Dr Zakir Naik.I request to those,please throw an open challenge to Zakir Naik. He will love to debate.But those people will never do that,becoz they don't have the guts,courage,knowledge to talk to him.So they cry in the internet.

ALLAH give u HEDAYAT

A little learning is a dangerous thing....That happened to u...Try to gain knowledge and if brave heart come to NAIK with ur Question...It is normal habit of some people..who alz speak ill of others..denote him as a SAITAN, IBLIS like this...Try to worshship only to ALLAH not to any MAJAR, statue even our prophet ( p.b.u.h )....So plz hold ur tongue..n try to be a MUSLIM...not to shia, sunni, hanafi etc...

Salamalaikum!! One thing all

Salamalaikum!!

One thing all can understand is that people has unnecessarily chewed and exaggerated this topic at its hieght and extreme.. The term or the intention to ask or recalling this topic was just to put Zakir Naik into deep controversy & trouble..]
Even though they(anti Zakir Naik) have provided the Versus and authentic hadis, they are concatenating the same leaving the actual meaning aside and taking the meaning only that which are beneficiary to their own desires..
Dr.Zakir Naik has always been mis quoted by the people.. He is doing an excellent work in his field.. We all support him and his work..

Imran

people against Dr Naik?

He is doing an excellent job but people with vested interest want to hinder his efforts. such type of munfiqs,mushriks and kafirs have been there right from the time of prophet. Inshaallah truth will prevail.

Zakir Naik doing the right thing..

The controversy over Zakir Naik's speech is baseless.
Those mulla's who make controversy is the reason for Islam's pathetic situation.

Zakir Naik, thru his knowledge, is clearly stating each and every statement of Islam to be true.

In the modern world, we can not express, we can not explain the true religion of Islam only thru past history, we have to connect it with the modern technologies also.

Zakir Naik is really doing a great job, I can not believe he will say anything against Islam.

May Allah bless him and his good deed, may Allah give a positive mind to those Mullas!

With love
Siraj SAP

better don't publish these

better don't publish these rubbish allegations. Cheap people creating disputes among muslims. they are selfish. common people should understand that these so called protestors are doing all these for the sake of power & chair. after all they need worldy benefits!!!. Not from Allah & hereafter.

What Dr. Zakir Naik is doing

What Dr. Zakir Naik is doing is most appreciable. He has done great work toward unity of muslim and has done a great work in removing misconception not only in minds of non-muslim but also of muslims.

PRAY TO ALLAH ALONE AND NOT PROPHET(pbuh)

May peace mercy and blessings of Allah be upon all of you.
Some muslims have taken offence against Dr.Zakir's statement that we must worship Allah alone and not Prophet(pbuh).What a great misconception and that too muslims are saying this.Muslims perform salaah(prayer) 5 times a day.In this prayer they recite Surah Al-Fathiha second.Dear brothers and sisters in humanity it is mentioned in this very same Chapter 1 surah Al-Fathiha verse:4"Thee alone we worship and Thee alone we ask for help." Here 'Thee' refers to Allah not the Prophet(pbuh).
Yes,we say La Ilaaha Ilallah muhammada rasoolullah which means "there is no God but Allah and Prophet Muhaamad is the messenger of Allah" in the present tense(for the Prophet also)because we respect the Prophet a lot,and because he will remain as the last Prophet forever and not because we should pray to him or anything else.
NEXT TIME READ QURAN WITH MEANING LIKE WHAT MUSLIMS SHOULD DO-INSHA ALLAH(ALLAH WILLING)

Solved problems

Shaikh Abdul Qadir Jilani Rah. Has solved this problem in his book GhuniatutTalibin. He says that we are not competent to enter into this controvercy of Imam Husain and Yazid. He quotes the Islamic principle of Matam which is 3 days and for wives four months and ten days. Again he says that if the day of Martyredom of Husain Raz. is of Matam then the days of Uthman, Umar,AbuBakr, Prophet himself and the chief of martyres Hamza Raz.anhum. So far as some persons are aggrieved on the statement that only Allah is to be prayed for help. This thing is repeated in Sura Al Fatiha by Iyyaka Na bud Wa Iyyaka nastain (O Allah)I worship thee and seek thou help only and exclusively. If any thing is practced by muslim is wrong that can not be right if Allah or His Prophet has not authenticated. Allah has warned in Sura Yusuf Ayat 105 that a person can be mushrik after Iman. In sura Baqra ayat 180 Allah says how to solve our problem by Doa. So there is need to go through Quran which Allah says is Guidance for human being what to sayto muslims So one is required to go through Quran with meaning.

hey guys,any one who think

hey guys,any one who think that zakir naik is misleading the muslims and a jewish person,those have to come in front of him and prove it face to face.just adding comment on some blogs are not the way to give judgement on someone.if anyone have really daring than come and do debate with him on any topic.I challange that whoever is criticise the zakir naik,he also dont have any knowledge of islam. so dont try to stop zakir naik.

Dr Zakir Naik

All these people who are against Dr Zakir Naik are the agent of BJP and Anti-muslim forces. Have these people done anything good to the community and Islam, even 10% of what Dr Zakir Naik is doing. Dr Zakir Naik is gem of muslim community. To achieve the status of Dr Zakir Naik is not possible for every men. He is gifted by Allah.

Better not to raise such issues.

I think it is unnecessary to indulge in such debates. It was equally unwarranted for Dr. Naik Saheb to speak on these issues, which have been a source of controversy since the great Saniha. The nature of work that Dr. Naik has admirably undertaken did not need this issue to be raised, and could be avoided. Diplomacy requires something to be avoided. It is not incumbent on any of us to discuss each and everything. If a statement can cause division among the Ummah and sabotage his mission, it should have been avoided, even if it was a correct statement. After all, the issue of Karbala is not a basic tenet of Islam.

What is the contribution of those who are criticising Naik?

The answer to this question is simply "none". The only contribution they have made to Islam or Muslims is to create misunderstandings among Muslims. Just a search on youtube is enough to tell you the misdeeds of these guys. They do not hesitate, even on public platforms, in using most unsuitable language for the three kalifs and ummul mo'mineen Hazrat Aisha (RA). Then there is another group dancing on music and calling it an Islamic act. These are the lot who have put notices on their mosques asking fellow Muslims (Deobandis, Ahle-Hadith etc) not to enter in these mosques. And then they have the audacy of talking about Muslim unity. It is these guys who do not hesitate in declaring fellow Muslims as kafirs. I do not know any Deobandi, Jamatis (Jamati Islami or Tableeghi) or Ahle-Hadith declaring other sects as kafirs. Yes they do condemn bid'a and do it rightly.. May Allah bless you with wisdom guys.

Dr. Zakir Naik himself is commiting 'Bida'.

Do you understand brother or sister Dr. Zakir Naik himself is comming bida by lecturing to exposed (meaning not maintaining purdah) ladis & girls of other religion. He is commiting 'bida' by using satellite Tvs. He is commiting 'bida' by using microphones' and so on. 'Bida' has a very wide meaning & applications. Only illiterate ones who thinks they are in the right path cries 'bida', 'bida', in every thing. You are using this 'internet' to cite'bida' is also 'bida'.

DG Ahmed
Dhaka, Bangladesh

Bida

I think u r mentally sick!, Have'nt you ever heard the hadeeth of Prophet MD explaining the meaning of biddah in ISLAM?. You know just what the ignorant Moulvis teach you. Try to learn some Hadeeth and then criticize on others.

PEOPLE CALLING THIS "BIDA" DNT KNW ITS MEANING

Dear DG AHMED from Dhaka, Bangladesh & all other (spcly Shia's) who are very seriously criticizing the only hope in this dark age Dr. Zakir naik, u people dont knw evn a meaning of 'BIDA' & other sides u r taking to blame & stop him from preaching Islam all over the globe, Chiristions & jews are utilizing media at thier best but wht we are doing nothing just fighting with each other.
u guyz just have to c last sunday islamic confrence held in mumbai in which many non-muslims came under the umbrella of Islam only cz of Dr. Zakir Naik, wht are ur contributions?? only abusing SAHABA's & Hazrat Aisha, & dancing all over the place on QAWALI & so called NATTS & saying this is the real ISLAM, abusing other muslims & making fatwa on tum of KAFIR, this is ur Islam,
there is a serious differnce b/w u group of people & Dr. Zakir Naik, he is in practical doing some thing good for muslims.

Meaning of Bidah

Its So illogical to say using microphones is bidah..
if u dont like someone so that dosent mean that u start
totally false propaganda against him..
atleast Dr zAKIR never speak out of islamic stuff like u did.isnt..??

Ignorance is Strength

At least to some Muslim 'Scholors' ignorance is strength. When there was a story about a rape by father-in-law some renowned authority issued a fatwa that "son should divorce the girl and father-in-law should marry". I strongly condemned and wrote furiously to the fatwa issuers. I am not a scholor. But I know Islam. Islam is the best way of life anytime, anywhere. I remember Retd Justice SA Ahmadi pointed out that in Islam, there is no such law. After a long time that fatwa withdrawn. If you do not know something, first study it. Then issue an order or fatwa. If Zakir Naik said something wrong, call him and ask him the detail. Do not go public and and try to be oversmart.

Islam is not only for me or for you. It is for all the people. Anyone can read Holy Quran and he can understand it. Quran itself says that there is confusion in it. If anyone mistook something explain it to him. But why this hue and cry? I do believe that some anti-Islamic string is acting behind it. Beware!

RSS danda

You people need RSS danda to get united. once, one of my hindu friend told us when we were busy in a heated altracation.
I end my message with the following Quranik verses

Qalallah Ta' ala: - W'Qul Ja'al Haq WA Zahaqal Batil inal Batil Ka'ana Zahuqha

Allah Ta'ala Says: - Tell that "Haq" (Truth) has come and "Batil" (False) has been destroyed. And Batil was bound to perish.

The Prophet (saw) never even wasted time in calling even a "Munafiq" as munafiq in their presence. He just kept himself busy in preaching good and discouraging bad. He never did "Dil-Azari" of anyone but kept preaching good which automatically perishes the bad according to the verse. He did use to have friendly debates with anyone but WITHOUT hurting them and calling them wrong. Even if we want to disagree we can do it with wisdom by making our beliefs attractive to them instead of hurting their feelings.

Output to Islam from Zakir Naik

What is the output did Mr. Zakir has given to Islam, if you see the overall debates and his hard word in comparision study is all in the Vain, he goes on debates with other religion comparing Islam & other religion and he is openly critizing other religion and nobody will be accpet Islam and overall result for his hard work is less than 1%. There is a hadeeth that once Omar Radiallahu Tallah Anhu came to Rasooallah Sallahu Alihivo Salam and said that i have read the book Taurat and in that its written like this.....etc prophet (PBUH) got angry and said why did u read that book i am here and Quran is here why did you refer that and said if Mossa (Alaihsalaam) comes back in this world again he should follow Quran.

No need for comparision study now nobody will be entertained saying that in the Bilble (verses) Geeta (Versese) all this are nonsense and Mr. Zakir should change his way of convencine the non muslim of accept Islam........and the question is that IF A NON MUSLIM ACCEPTS ISLAM AND BECOME MUSLIM WHO WILL GUIDE HIM....IN OUR RELIGION OUR MUSLIM BROTHERS ARE NOT 100% ON THE PATH OF PROPHET MOHAMMED SALAHU ALIHIVASALAM......MY ADVICE TO MR. ZAKIR IS THAT FIRST OUR MUSLIM BROTHER & SYSTERS SHOULD FOLLOW THE RIGHT PATH THEN AUTOMATICALLY NON MUSLIM WILL CONVERT IN ISLAM WITHOUT ANY DEBATE ON RELIGION COMPARISON AND GETTING CLAPPED IN THE AUDIANCE RESITING THE VERSES OR GIVING THE UNNECESSARY ANSWERS TO THE NON MUSLIM.

What kind of a stupid statement is that ?

Who will guide the new Muslims? Allah will guide the new Muslims ? Does anyone else have the power to guide and misguide. Learn the basics of your religion before posting a comment. Do you have no faith in ALLAH ?

Yes brother you are right.

Yes brother you are right. That really makes me laugh how stupid UMMA of MOHAMMED (SAW) has become.

U idoit keep your mouth

U idoit keep your mouth close its 4 your betterment.don't have to give suggestion to Zakir Naik he know thousand time more than you.

STOP CURSING EACH OTHER

Dear Brothers & Sisters
Assalam O Alaikum WRB
I have gone through the comments posted here, some were very good but most of them make me tired of reading. I have noticed some of brothers used very bad language to express their views, one can't expect from the community who claim to be that they are created as ummat ul khair. Our greatUlamas/Scholars have always has differences in their opinion, but they used to respect each other. They never used their students or followers to critise on their counterparts. therefore, we should learn ethics from our ancestor great Ulamas how to deal these issues. we should also learn to respect each other. for the sake of discussion if Dr. Zakir Naik made some mistake, we should not understand that he is spared of making mistakes because he is not a Nabi or Rasool. He is a simple creature of Allah (SWT), he does not hold any assurance the he is guarded by Allah (SWT) like An'mbia wa Rasool. he is capable to make mistakes like you and me. So we should feel our duty to provide a healthy atmosphere in a civilised manner to him to realise his mistakes by providing sittings with other scholars so that he can correct himself. I believe in this way we can avoid conflicts among muslim umma.
Quran Says us to Call Ahle Kitab to common terms between us and them. we should be the musdaq of this Ayah first before going to other community.

Only Muslim then we will be the greatest nation of the world.

NAIK IS FAKE

Naik has by-hearted Hindu scriptures to prove that some Hindu scriptures too recommend violence when Qur'an is accused of containing passages which are mis-used by Jehadi Terrorist to spread violence, but what he has failed to understand is that Hindus do not have to follow any Hindu scripture to be a Hindu unlike Muslims who have to strictly abide by Qur'an to be a true Muslim. Even an ATHEIST- "non believer in the existence of God" can be a Hindu while an ATHEIST can never be a Muslim . Hindus who indulge in terrorist activity like the LTTE are motivated by “ethnic causes” and do not seek inspiration from Hindu Scriptures like the Jehadis who quote Qur'an to support the violence. The earlier Muslims accept the need to edit out Verses from Qur'an which support violence the better it is for them. After all, more Muslims are killed by Muslims themselves in the present day world-from Afghanistan, Pakistan, Kurdistan, Iraq, Chad, Somalia etc etc and even during 26/11 attack on Mumbai 38 Poor innocent Muslims were also killed by “Jehadi Paki Muslims” at VT Station.

Asalam o elikum

sir u said we can not say he is great n we didn't know islam.sir jee i understand y u said that but
aamaal ka daroomadar neeyato per hai.

dosro pe tanqeed karne sa pehly khud pe dekhna chahiya.

doctor zakir naik

it is shamefully an easy practice in todays world to give fatwa of kaafir to a muslim by a muslim which is not only an abhorrent practice but is also based on ignorance,envy and disrespect. If one does not agree to one's beliefs and knowlege one should clarify ones position in light of ones knowlege and stop there instead of instigating hatred and discarding one from the folds of islam which no one except the Almighty has the right to do. I personally think Dr.Naik is doing a tremendous job with excellent hikmah and superb intellingence. I have seen and heard many of his lectures and i have not heard him ridicule anyone nor spread hatred against anyone. On the contrary he has been the source of spreading the light of Islam to muslims and nonmuslims alike the later embracing this wonderful religion time and again. Shias,sunnis,salafis whatever your brand of islam is please respect each other in the name of Islam and the Holy Prophet of Islam. To differ in knowlege and belief does not mean that we should start hating each other because our predecessors in Islam also differed from one another on various topics of deen but inspite of that they had so much of mutual respect. Today muslims lack respect for one another and that leads to disunity and a divided ummah can not be successful in this world in combating antiIslamic activities.

Dear brother and Sisters in Islam.this is not 1st time that we are divided, in many Masaa'il (laws) scholars has different opinions. but the question is what is our duty as a Muslim? as a Muslim its our duty that we must not fall into cursing each other, if you are agree take it if not than keep quite and do not curse your muslim brother/sister, leave their matter unto Allah.
their is no doubt Dr. Zakir Nike is a great scholar but every scholar has specialty in certain field. Dr Nike is a great scholar in comparison of different religion and we can not ignore this. but he does not have enough knowledge to give Fatwa, because to give Fatwa there are many conditions. i will give just one example what i heard from him, he said in one lecturer that if any non Muslim greets you by Assalamo Alaikum than too you reply him with same word or better word because Allah says in Quran to do so. and he said there are some people who says do not reply of the non Muslim salam are ignorant and there is no proof in Quran and hadees. but what he said is totally wrong because there are many famous AHAADEES in which Prophet SALLAL LAHU ALAIHI WASALLAM said that when a non Muslim greets you by salam just say WA ALAIKUM. so this one example.
if he talks about something according to his knowledge which is different from other scholars sayings that too we should not talk bad about him coz every one has different understanding based on Quran and Hadees, they are right according to them and you are also right according to your opinion based on Quran and Hadees.
about SHIA, SUNNI, DEWBANDI, WAHABI, SALFI or whatsoever i would like to say very simple thing that just go back to the history and look which group or is coming continuously since the time of RASULULLAH Sallal lahu alaihi wasallam and SAHABA , which group is born later on either just 70/80 years later or in 11th/12th/13th/ or century or later. check the believes of every group and go back to the previous scholars of the 1st and 2nd century and look what were their believes. you will find it and easily be able to understand the truth.
in the end again i would like to say please stop cursing each other and dont break the unity of Ummah just because of different opinions.
May Alla Ta'ala guide us to the right path. Amen.

Sorry for that

Dear Brother, Don't be

Dear Brother,

Don't be apologetic. There are three AYAH I have read in QURAN one of them is Al IMRAN 199 and other two I am just forgetting in which ALLAH says that even among AHLE KITAB there are people who believe in ALLAH (Oneness) and Prophet Mohammed and ALLAH will reward them. So may be the hadees in which reply to assalam alaikum is waalikum assalam is mentioned could be for these catogary of people. And the other hadees for those kafir who are the worst enemy of ISLAM. And Allah knows best
