British Secular Muslims welcome ban on hate preacher Zakir Naik

Related article: Zakir Naik: Muslim preacher of hate – by David Leppard

The majority of Pakistani, Indian and other Muslims living in the UK have welcomed the UK government’s ban on hate preacher Dr Zakir Naik’s entry to the United Kingdom.

تحریک انسداد متعصب ملا  کی جانب سے جہادی اور فرقہ پرست متعصب ملا ذاکر نائیک المعروف کھل نائیک کی برطانیہ میں داخلے پر پابندی کا خیر مقدم کیا جاتا ہے – تامم کا بھارتی حکومت سے مطالبہ ہے کہ ملا ذاکر نائیک کو گدھوں کے اصطبل میں بند کر دیا جائے اور اس کی فرقہ وارانہ نفرت انگیز تقریروں پر پابندی لگا دی جائے

British Secular Muslims welcomes the UK government’s ban on notorious sectarian and jihadi mullah Zakir Naik’s entry to the UK. The BSM also demands from the Indian Government to arrest Zakir Naik for spreading hate speech against Barelvi and Shia Muslims, Hindus, Christians and for also eulogizing acts of terrorism.

We also demand from the UK and Indian governments that Zakir Naik’s mouthpiece TV channels (including Peac TV in English and Urdu) must be banned for spreading hate speech and disinformation in the name of Islam.

An Indian Muslim preacher has been banned from entering the UK for his “unacceptable behaviour,” the home secretary says.

Zakir Naik, a 44-year-old television preacher, had been due to give a series of lectures in London and Sheffield.

Theresa May said that visiting the UK was “a privilege, not a right”.

The home secretary can stop people entering the UK if she believes there is a threat to national security, public order or the safety of citizens.

But she cannot ban people simply because of their views.

Ms May said: “Numerous comments made by Dr Naik are evidence to me of his unacceptable behaviour.

“Coming to the UK is a privilege, not a right and I am not willing to allow those who might not be conducive to the public good to enter the UK.

“Exclusion powers are very serious and no decision is taken lightly or as a method of stopping open debate on issues.”

This is the first person who has been excluded from the UK since Ms May became home secretary last month.

Mr Naik is based in Mumbai (Bombay) where he works for the Peace TV channel.

The BBC’s Sanjiv Buttoo says that he is recognised as an authority on Islam but also has a reputation for making disparaging remarks about other religions.

Peace TV itself describes him as “a medical doctor by professional training… and a dynamic international orator on Islam and comparative religion”.

“Dr Naik clarifies Islamic viewpoints and clears misconceptions about Islam using the Koran,” the channel’s website says.

Mrs May said the doctor was being excluded because repeated comments attributed to him was evidence of his ‘unacceptable behaviour’.
She said: ‘Coming to the UK is a privilege not a right, and I am not willing to allow those who might not be conducive to the public good to enter the UK.’
Home Office sources told The Daily Telegraph that website footage had shown the preacher making the claim that every Muslim should embrace terrorism.
Website footage is considered published material.
Dr Naik said Muslims should beware of people saying Osama bin Laden was right or wrong, adding: ‘If you ask my view, if given the truth, if he is fighting the enmies of Islam, I am for him.
‘If he is terrorising the terrorists, if he is terrorising America the terrorist, the biggest terrorist, every Muslim should be a terrorist.’
He is also reported as saying that western women make themselves ‘ more susceptible to rape’ by wearing revealing clothing.

    “HATE PREACHER” ZAKIR NAIK SHOULD NOT BE BANNED
    18Jun10 – 11:57 am
    by Nigel Warburton

    Home Secratary Theresa May has issued an exclusion order for the controversial Muslim preacher Zakir Naik.

    At first glance this is similar to the ban on Dutch MP Geert WIlders imposed when he was due to show his film Fitna in the House of Lords last year. The ban on Wilders, whose film juxtaposed verses from the Koran with images of terrorist atrocities, backfired on two counts. First, it simply made him a free speech martyr and drew attention to his scare-mongering views that were freely available on the Internet. Secondly, it wasn’t sustainable — Wilders won an appeal against the ban at the Asylum and Immigration Tribunal. In retrospect (and as it seemed at the time too) it would have been far better to have let Wilders have his say, and to have met his arguments with counterarguments and evidence. I made a podcast about this criticising the Government action at the time (Listen here)

    Does that mean that on free speech grounds we should discourage the UK Government from imposing a ban on Naik? Here’s a possible difference between the cases: Naik has reputedly expressed sympathy for Osama Bin Laden’s terrorism and seems in some of his pronouncements to be advocating actual violence against Americans and against those who change their religion.

    If that is correct, then there may be good reason for a ban. The most obvious acceptable limit to free speech is the point at which a speaker incites violence. Yet, the situation gets more complicated. Naik has issued a press release in which he “unequivocally condemns acts of violence including 9/11, 7/7 and 7/11.”

    So, should we take the press release as a sincere statement of his current position? If so, is it reasonable to ban him for views that he has apparently jettisoned if indeed he ever held them? This is not an easy case to decide. Perhaps allowing him to speak in Britain while monitoring closely the content of his oratory will in the end be the least worst option.

  • I agree with the demands by The Muslim Movement for the Elimination of Prejudiced Mullahs. Zakir Naik and his hate spreading lectures and TV channels must be proscribed.

  • Sadia Dehlvi’s interview:

    ‘The ideology Zakir Naik is propagating is very dangerous’

    I accept what you said earlier about the need to respect and engage with the ulema, but why, then, have you so openly spoken against the Muslim televangelist Zakir Naik and his Peace TV channel?

    I make a total distinction between the ulema, on the one hand, and people like Zakir Naik, on the other. Zakir Naik is no alim. Even the ulema would refuse to consider him as such. No ulema in India regard him as an authoritative teacher.

    I have great problems with the Wahhabi ideology that Zakir Naik and his television station are propagating. He is totally against Sufism, for one thing. His selling point is his memory, his ability to quote line and verse from the Quran, the Bible, the Gita and so on, and this is what mesmerises his viewers. I think the ideology that he is propagating is very dangerous, and could lead to radical, confrontationist and extremist tendencies. I also detest the way he runs down other religions, which causes his audience to exult and clap.

    This is not the Islamic approach to deal with other faiths and their adherents. The Prophet and the Sufis never did anything of this sort. They related to others with love and compassion.

    Nor is his the sunnat or Prophetic way of interacting with non-Muslims. The Prophet welcomed a group of Christians to the mosque in Medina and allowed them to pray, in their own way, therein. The Christians did not accept Islam and left, but the Prophet never harangued them or threatened them that they would go to hell for this. He simply offered the Christians the message of Islam, and left it to them to accept or not, without condemning them, for he knew that it was for God to guide them if He willed.

    The contrast with Zakir Naik is really stark in this regard. I am appalled that his followers treat his programmes more like an achievement show. An assembly of the righteous should bring forth tears from the eyes and the heart, not applause. The Quran is not something you hear and clap. You should be moved to weep at its recitation

  • From The Star:

    Naik’s just another religous bigot with ideas and attitudes that belong back in the middle-ages. In my opinion there’d be a lot more peace in the world with fewer Zakir Naik’s about.

  • There is a very easy solution for Zakir Naik i.e. to ask him following questions in any public forum.

    1 – Who would decide about the Definition of Islam.

    2 – Is Parliamentary Democracy based on Adult Franchise allowed or haram in Islam. If it is allowed then why it is not in Arab Countries [Read Kuwait, UAE, Saudi Arabia, Qatar] from where Zakir Naik get his support and if it is wrong and haram then how come he is living in India under a Haram System, he should migrate to Saudi Arabia apply for Saudi Citizenship [become a second class Citizen where Saudi address every outsider as “Kharji”].

    3 – Ask question from Mr Naik, if he is preaching Islam then what Deobandis, Barelvis, Ahl-e-Hadith and Shia preach. How many definition and how many interpretation.

  • Sunni Muslims demand ban of Zakir Naik’s talk
    November 13, 2008 · 87 Comments

    Salman ansari/DNA
    On November 8, 2008, members of India’s premier Sunni Muslim organisation, Raza Academy came together to demand a ban on Zahir Naik’s programme ‘Insaniyat Ke Liye Hal’ to be held from November 14-23 at Somaiya grounds.

    Maulana Ashraf Raza of the Darul-Uloom Hanfia Rizvia, Colaba also issued a fatwa against Naik. Members alleged that Naik had made derogatory statements about Islam’s prophet. Maulanas from the All India Sunni Tableeq Community were present.
    Members complained that on many occasions Naik had urged crowds to pray to Allah alone instead of Prophet Mohammed Paigambar, as he claims the prophet is human.

    They also alleged that Naik had praised, Yazid, the murderer of Imam Hussein. Saeed Noori, general secretary of Raza Academy said, “Naik has been very indifferent about Osama Bin Laden. He hasn’t said anything about Osama, even though we see him as a terrorist.”

    Ebrahim Tahil, member of the academy said, “He earlier targeted Christians and is now against Sunni Muslims. We have met with RR Patil and KL Prasad urging them to ban the programme.” He added, “We want to know from where Naik gets his funds?”

    What if the ban is not enforced? Noori said, “Maulanas from the Sunni community plan to confront Naik on his knowledge of Islam before the public during the programme.”
    DNA tried getting in touch with Naik, but he was unavailable for comment.

  • UK banning Dr. Zakir Naik is disgusting as he is the most prominent islamic scholar today who has not only removed misconceptions about islam but also convinced thousands of non muslims to revert to islam. as we know today media and non muslims quote quran and it,s verses OUT OF CONTEXT and they are portrying islam as a terrorist religion but on the other hand zakir naik has removed all the misconception of non muslims regarding islam that is why UK has banned him fearing his teachings and arguments will make hundreds of non muslims to revert to islam.( IT,S A SHAMEFULL DECISION BY UK.)
    not only it will spoil the image of uk in muslim community around the world but also a clear indication of uk government being racist and against islam it a GREAT SHAME for uk to do such thing .
    Talking about disparaging remarks let me clarify you all ! He never made any of these remarks again the problem is non muslims always QUOTE OUT OF CONTEXT also in the case of zakir naik his statements have been quoted out of context just to ban him preaching islam in UK .
    ALL THE RESPECT THAT I HAD FOR UK IS GONE NO DOUGHT UK HAS DEPRIVED THOUSANDS OF NON MUSLIMS TO REVERT TO ISLAM BY TAKING SUCH A DISGUSTING DECISION.
    MAY ALLAH GIVE GUIDANCE AND SHOW HIS SIGNS TO THE NON BELIVERS.

  • I usually call him Shah Rukh Khan of Molvis. He is primarily a “showbiz” person with a very limited intellect. If he had a better look and body his first preference would have been to be in bollywood. He made a good career though despite his limited intellect and handicap.
    I give him one credit though, he has changed the way Molvis used to think about preaching Islam, I love watching Peace Tv where I see 70+ years old men with long beard and much respected outlook , saying “and your watching Peace TV!!!” .. hahaha… just like any Mumbai based showbiz channel.
    I wish I could like a complete article on Zakir Naik phenomenon , it is on my todo list.
    On a serious note I personally think that Zakir Naik phenomenon is more dangerous than the much feared taliban phenomenon of 80 and 90’s. We are already seeing the results of this phenomenon in the shape of Faisal Shahzad and Dr. Aafia, however it will soon go out of hands as now this is spreading at a much higher pace due to better means of communication both Internet and Television.

  • pejamistri : We are already seeing the results of this phenomenon in the shape of Faisal Shahzad and Dr. Aafia,

    KARACHI: The Sindh Home Department has alleged Military Intelligence (MI) detained Dr Aafia Siddiqui in 2003 and then handed her over to United States-based agencies, Daily Times learnt on Thursday.

    Six months after her divorce, she married Ammar al-Baluchi, a nephew of the 9/11 mastermind, Khalid Sheikh Mohammed, at a small ceremony near Karachi. Siddiqui’s family denies the wedding took place, but it has been confirmed by Pakistani and US intelligence, al-Baluchi’s relatives and, according to FBI interview reports recently filed in court, Siddiqui herself. At any rate, it was a short-lived honeymoon. The mystery of Dr Aafia Siddiqui Declan Walsh The Guardian, Tuesday 24 November 2009 http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2009/nov/24/aafia-siddiqui-al-qaida

    Khalid Sheikh Mohammed is believed to have been born in either 1964 or 1965 in Kuwait into a family originally from the Pakistani province of Baluchistan, which borders Afghanistan. He is said to be fluent in Arabic, English, Urdu and Baluchi. He graduated in 1986 from North Carolina Agricultural and Technical State University in the US.

    Musharraf recalls in his memoir, “In the Line of Fire.” Within months Kiyani had unraveled the two plots and arrested most of the participants. He was rewarded in 2004 with a promotion to chief of ISI, and the next year his agency scored big with the arrest of Abu Faraj al-Libbi, the senior Qaeda lieutenant who masterminded the attempts on Musharraf’s life. A former U.S. intelligence official who dealt personally with Kiyani says the ISI “took a lot of bad guys down” under his leadership.

  • @Sarah Khan
    Are you guys all dumb Jews, He has been a peace missionary. I think you are all stupid you can not tell the difference between peace and hate.

  • Salamu `alaikum,

    I don’t listen to Dr Zakir Naik much, but after this, I think I would look into his views to see why they are “extreme” as claimed.

    My general perception of him, is that he is a peaceful man.

    Thanks for posting.

  • I think you should make the entire quote available from Dr Zakir Naik “every Muslim should be a terrorist,” continues “every Muslim should be a law abiding citizen and he should terrorise the burglar, robber and those who wish to commit acts of crime”. It is important not to selectively quote to give a false impression of someone for political ends. Dr Naik is one of the most moderate and respected interfaith debaters and the decision to bar him shows a fear that some in the British government have of freedom of speech on an equal platform.

  • I am agree that Dr. Naik is a peace full man. His statements are being misquoted. He has nothing do with any kind of terrorism and sectarianism. He is not only a religious scholar but a well qualified medical graduate.
    Muslim Ummah needs this sort of scholars who can talk with west in their language with arguments and logic

  • I would request Mr. Abdul to upload this Documentary to show the real face of Ummah.

    Most shameful is this that Salafi Actors like Yousuf Estes, Abdul Rehman Green, Zakir Naik, Bilal Philip and countless others coming out of woodwork couldn’t see these realities yet the have the audacity to preach Islam. Watch the Documentary and Read the last paragraph of this news, the extremists are getting funds from Dubai and other UAE States and Salafi Preachers are to getting aid from these countries where Human Rights Situation is worse and that too against Fellow Muslims.

    For months, the BBC’s Ben Anderson hung out around the glittering, insane towers springing up in Dubai trying to infiltrate the community of expatriate workers who are putting them up. What he found when he finally got in was that the jewel of the Arab world is almost entirely built upon imported slave labor. http://www.vbs.tv/watch/vbs-news/the-slaves-of-dubai

    VIEW: South Asian slaves in Dubai —Ishtiaq Ahmed Tuesday, June 15, 2010 http://www.dailytimes.com.pk/default.asp?page=20106\15\story_15-6-2010_pg3_2

    The oil producing states of the Gulf combine tribalism, feudalism and rentier capitalism to produce an egregiously oppressive socio-economic order

    A few days ago my older son wrote to me from Stockholm to convey his shock over a short documentary he saw by BBC’s Ben Anderson entitled ‘The Slaves of Dubai’. It is about the heart-wrenching plight of South Asian workers who arrive in Dubai in the hope of alleviating the abject poverty they are born in but end up becoming virtually bonded labour. They can also be called slaves. He wrote: “I was really shocked and upset about their situation. If you have not already written about it, can you please do it in your next column?”

    So, this essay is largely to disseminate information about the construction industry mafia that ruthlessly and relentlessly exploits South Asian workers, whose labour has created all those skyscrapers, including the tallest in the world, the Burj Dubai, penthouses, luxury apartments, 7-star hotels, golf courses and what not. Now, of course, Dubai has been badly hit by the global financial crisis but it only magnifies the utter disregard that the Arab sheikhs have for all the millions of workers who live in their kingdoms as virtual slaves.

    The enslavement process begins in South Asia at the time of recruitment. Impoverished families somehow manage to raise money to send a young man to Dubai — it could be any other country in that region as well. It involves selling whatever land or other possessions they have, borrowing from relatives and so on. The agent charges an exorbitant sum for arranging the passport and visa. Upon arrival in Dubai, the worker’s passport is confiscated and he is sent to a camp where he lives with thousands of other workers. The documentary showed that in a small dirty room some eight to nine people ‘live’; for some 45 people there are one or two latrines, which are filthy and nauseating. Once inside the camp the new arrival becomes practically a slave, working 12 hours a day, six days a week. The wage that is paid is one-half or one-third of what was promised. The construction firms that own the labour camps strictly regulate who comes in and who goes out. In short, the South Asian workers live in camps that are similar to a POW camp where soldiers of a defeated army are kept.

    The documentary shows that the Dubai government does not seriously interfere with the way the construction firms run these camps. Occasionally some fines are imposed but these are so light that the firms continue to violate the rules and regulations that should apply to the conditions in the camps. The general line taken by the Dubai authorities and the officials of the construction firms is that the workers earn a better living than if they were living in their own country. That is probably true, but it only captures the utter helplessness of millions of our brethren who are denied their birthright to be treated with respect and dignity, both at home and when they come to the Gulf in search of work. Ben Anderson was able to interview one man from Bangladesh who broke down during the interview as he could not express the level and depth of his suffering in words and the only response left to express the emotions was to start weeping.

    There is an amazing historical coincidence involved in the story of the South Asian construction workers and another architectural marvel from another age. I named my son Sahir to honour the memory of the great poet, Sahir Ludhianvi (1921-80), who gained fame by writing his unforgettable poem ‘Taj Mahal’ in which the social issue of workers’ exploitation is the main inspiration. Sahir Ludhianvi contrasted the grandeur and matchless beauty of the Mughals’ greatest architectural wonder — the Taj Mahal was started in 1632 and completed in 1653 — with the fact that those whose labour made it possible remained unsung, unrecognised and most probably unpaid. That my Sahir should now request after nearly 350 years to take up an identical issue without knowing it touched me deeply. So, his heart beats in the right place, as did that of Sahir Ludhianvi. That is ample reason for a father to feel proud.

    The problem now is that much of the world has moved away from feudal oppression, and while the ravages of unbridled capitalism wreck the lives of millions on a daily basis, the situation in the oil producing states of the Gulf is much worse. These societies combine tribalism, feudalism and rentier capitalism to produce an egregiously oppressive socio-economic order. At least four compartmentalised social segments are to be found in these countries. The indigenous Arab populations are the most favoured in that they are given many welfare facilities. For that they have to keep out of politics. The second group is that of bankers, financiers and business executives and high society people who provide such services that the local populations are not educated or qualified to perform. In Saudi Arabia, I know Asian and African qualified people are paid far less than their counterparts with the same education from the western world. The situation in Dubai may be somewhat better. The third segment is semi-skilled workers, shopkeepers and others who came to the Gulf region in the early years and were able to establish their relatively independent presence. They earn well and send remittances to their families in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan. The fourth group comprises the millions of workers who live in camps and work day and night but who are treated as human dregs.

    After the Mumbai terrorist attacks of November 26, 2008, I visited Pakistan to collect material for my book on the Pakistani military. That gave me an opportunity to interview some senior officers. To my very great surprise I was told that a substantial portion of al Qaeda and Taliban funding came from the Gulf Emirates and not just Saudi Arabia. That made me really angry that some Gulf Arabs had no qualms of conscience in treating poor and impoverished Muslims who work for them as dirt while some of their countrymen finance terrorist activities, which also exploit mainly individuals from poor families. The greater puzzle is of course how fairly educated Pakistanis also join such jihad instead of working for the overthrow of all rentier states in the Muslim world.

  • The Trouble with Dr. Zakir Naik – Britain’s decision to bar an influential Muslim cleric from entering the country underscores the failure of Indian secularism. OPINION INDIAJUNE 20, 2010 http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748704365204575317833268479268.html?mod=WSJINDIA_hps_sections_opinion

    By SADANAND DHUME

    If you’re looking for a snapshot of India’s hapless response to radical Islam, then look no further than Bombay-based cleric Dr. Zakir Naik. In India, the 44-year-old Dr. Naik—a medical doctor by training and a televangelist by vocation—is a widely respected figure, feted by newspapers and gushed over by television anchors. The British, however, want no part of him. On Friday, the newly elected Conservative-led government announced that it would not allow Dr. Naik to enter Britain to deliver a series of lectures. According to Home Secretary Theresa May, the televangelist has made “numerous comments” that are evidence of his “unacceptable behavior.”

    The good doctor’s views run the gamut from nutty to vile, so it’s hard to pinpoint which of them has landed him in trouble. For instance, though Dr. Naik has condemned terrorism, at times he also appears to condone it. “If he [Osama bin Laden] is fighting the enemies of Islam, I am for him,” he said in a widely watched 2007 YouTube diatribe. “If he is terrorizing the terrorists, if he is terrorizing America the terrorist, the biggest terrorist, I am with him. Every Muslim should be a terrorist.”

    Dr. Naik recommends the death penalty for homosexuals and for apostasy from the faith, which he likens to wartime treason. He calls for India to be ruled by the medieval tenets of Shariah law. He supports a ban on the construction of non-Muslim places of worship in Muslim lands and the Taliban’s bombing of the Bamiyan Buddhas. He says revealing clothes make Western women “more susceptible to rape.” Not surprisingly, Dr. Naik believes that Jews “control America” and are the “strongest in enmity to Muslims.”

    Of course, every faith has its share of cranks; and, arguably, India has more than its share. But it’s impossible to relegate Dr. Naik to Indian Islam’s fringe. Earlier this year, the Indian Express listed him as the country’s 89th most powerful person, ahead of Nobel Laureate economist Amartya Sen, eminent lawyer and former attorney general Soli Sorabjee, and former Indian Premier League cricket commissioner Lalit Modi. Dr. Naik’s satellite TV channel, Peace TV, claims a global viewership of up to 50 million people in 125 countries. On YouTube, a search for Dr. Naik turns up more than 36,000 hits.

    Nobody accuses Dr. Naik of direct involvement in terrorism, but those reportedly drawn to his message include Najibullah Zazi, the Afghan-American arrested last year for planning suicide attacks on the New York subway; Rahil Sheikh, accused of involvement in a series of train bombings in Bombay in 2006; and Kafeel Ahmed, the Bangalore man fatally injured in a failed suicide attack on Glasgow airport in 2007.

    Nonetheless, when the doctor appears on a mainstream Indian news channel, his interviewers tend to be deferential. Senior journalist and presenter Shekhar Gupta breathlessly introduced his guest last year as a “rock star of televangelism” who teaches “modern Islam” and “his own interpretation of all the faiths around the world.” A handful of journalists—among them Praveen Swami of the Hindu, and the grand old man of Indian letters, Khushwant Singh—have questioned Dr. Naik’s views, but most take his carefully crafted image of moderation at face value.

    At first glance, it’s easy to understand why. Unlike the foaming mullah of caricature, Dr. Naik eschews traditional clothing for a suit and tie. His background as a doctor and his often gentle demeanor set him apart, as does his preaching in English. Unlike traditional clerics, Dr. Naik quotes freely from non-Muslim scripture, including the Bible and the Vedas. (You have to pay attention to realize that invariably this is either to disparage other faiths, or to interpret them in line with his version of Islam.) The depth of Dr. Naik’s learning is easily apparent.

    But this doesn’t fully explain Dr. Naik’s escape from criticism. It helps that Indians appear to have trouble distinguishing between free speech and hate speech. In a Western democracy, demanding the murder of homosexuals and the second-class treatment of non-Muslims would likely attract public censure or a law suit. In India, it goes unchallenged as long as it has a religious imprimatur. However, create a book or a painting that ruffles religious sentiment, as the writer Taslima Nasreen and the painter M. F. Husain both discovered, and either the government or a mob of pious vigilantes will strive to muzzle you.

    In general, India accords extra deference to allegedly holy men of all stripes unlike, say, France, which strives to keep religion out of the public square. Taxpayers subsidize the Haj pilgrimage for pious Muslims and a similar, albeit much less expensive, journey for Hindus to a sacred lake in Tibet. This reflexive deference effectively grants the likes of Dr. Naik—along with all manner of Hindu and Christian charlatans—protection against the kind of robust scrutiny he would face in most other democracies.

    Finally, unlike Hindu bigots, such as the World Hindu Council’s Praveen Togadia, whose fiercest critics tend to be fellow Hindus, radical Muslims go largely unchallenged. The vast majority of Indian Muslims remain moderate, but their leaders are often fundamentalists and the community has done a poor job of policing its own ranks. Moreover, most of India’s purportedly secular intelligentsia remains loath to criticize Islam, even in its most radical form, lest this be interpreted as sympathy for Hindu nationalism.

    Unless this changes, unless Indians find the ability to criticize a radical Islamic preacher such as Dr. Naik as robustly as they would his Hindu equivalent, the idea of Indian secularism will remain deeply flawed.

  • My only experience to hear the feather weight religious wrestler is when he was at a barka dutt show regarding SRK film MNIK with other participants like SRK, K Johar, Najeeb Jang, Kabir Khan and Mehmood Madni etc.. When he was asked about terrorism and OBL, his remarks were shocking to the audience, as referring to a Malaysian Surgeon he raised suspicion on OBL existence and pointed out to the conspiracy theories regarding WTC attacks etc… It was indeed very disappointing…

  • I just stumbled upon this site and got shocked by the views of most of the commenters. I am particularly curious why Mr. Amir Mughal is so interested in writing against all the muslims and how much time he has in hand to write all this stuff. Mr. Mughal is this your full time job to write all this? And why you are throwing all these links when they do not belong to the subject. What is your faith? Are you barelvi. You criticize every one yet you do not have your own identity. Are you a Muslim?

    I would suggest all who see this, to view peace tv and see a few of Dr Zakir’s programs and decide for yourself. Do not see stuff taken out of context on youtube etc.
    He is an educated person. Unlike most of the mullahs, he can argue with others. And thus now feared by the UK govt. My only question to UK Govt is “Why not now defend freadom of speach”?
    Only because you allow freadom of speach to those who are anti muslims.
    At the end I urge typical muslims to write their views and not let these paid opinion skewers to paint an untrue picture of Islam and good people.

    And at the very end. let me state this clearly
    “We the muslims do not welcome this ban, you have shown one more time your double standards here (Supporting Danish cartoonist for free speach and stopping Dr. Zakir from Free Speach)”

  • Dear Muslim Sahab,

    Replies are after ever query of your good-self.

    A Muslim says: June 21, 2010 at 1:55 am – I am particularly curious why Mr. Amir Mughal is so interested in writing against all the muslims and how much time he has in hand to write all this stuff.

    AM: Sir, I didn’t write against Muslims anywhere on this blog I have just quoted Muslim Scholars say against each other in the worst possible way thus making entire Muslim Community rather Islam a Joke amongst “Kuffar” i.e. Infidels i.e. Heathens i.e. Pagans, i.e. What not.

    A Muslim: Mr. Mughal is this your full time job to write all this?

    AM: Yes it is because Allah has commanded every Muslim to separate Falsehood from Truth [Read Surah-e-Baqarah Chapter 2 of Quran].

    A Muslim: And why you are throwing all these links when they do not belong to the subject.

    AM: Very much related with the subject for example Sheikh Meraj Rabbani is an Ahl-e-Hadith/Salafi Scholar from India [settled in Saudi Arabia] and Dr Zakir Naik is also Salafi and watch this video wherein Meraj Rabbani is criticizing Dr Zakir Naik as well. Meraj Rabbani on Dr Zakir Naik http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r3LqK8QRMa8

    A Muslim: What is your faith? Are you barelvi. You criticize every one yet you do not have your own identity. Are you a Muslim?

    AM: None of your business. You are not Allah but since you have asked my religion is mentioned in [AL-HAJJ (THE PILGRIMAGE) Chapter 22 – Verse 78]. Am I Barelvi? read these posts:

    Barelvis and Deobandis.

    An advice from Altaf Hussain Hali’s Collection [Mussadas-e-Hali]

    کرے غیر گربت کی پوجا تو کافر

    جو ٹھرائے بیٹا خدا کا تو کافر

    جھکے آگ پر بہر سجدہ تو کافر

    کواکب میں مانے کرشمہ تو کافر

    مگر مومنوں پر کشادہ ہیں راہیں

    پرستش کریں شوق سے جس کی چاہیں

    نبی کو جو چاہیں خدا کر دکھائیں

    اماموں کا رتبہ نبی سے بڑھائیں

    مزاروں پہ دن رات مذریں چڑھائیں

    شہیدوں سے جاجا کے مانگیں دعائیں

    نہ توحید میں کچھ خلل اس سے آئے

    نہ اسلام بگڑے نہ ایمان جائے

    گناہوں سے ہوتے ہو گویا مبّرا

    مخالف پہ کرتے ہو جب تم تبرّا

    نہ سنی میں اور جعفری میں ہو الفت

    نہ نعمانی و شافعی میں ہو ملت

    وہابی سے صوفی کی کم ہو نہ نفرت

    لمقلد کرے نا مقلد پہ لعنت

    رہے اہلِ قبلہ مین جنگ ایسی باہم

    کہ دینِ خدا پر ہنسے سارا عالم

    کرے کوئی اصلاح کا گر ارادہ

    تو شیطان سے اس کو سمجھو زیادہ

    Dear Mr. Muslim,

    Answer for you above queries is as under and since you mentioned a Sect therefore I will answer it through Quran on Sects. My religion is mentioned somewhere in the verses.

    English Translation:

    We verily sent (messengers) before thee among the factions of the men of old. And never came there unto them a messenger but they did mock him. [AL-HIJR (AL-HIJR, STONELAND, ROCK CITY) Chapter 15 – Verse 10 and 11]

  • Munir Report on Fatwas of Kufr
    http://www.aaiil.info/misconceptions/fatwas/munir.htm

    What is the definition of a Muslim. At the end of the answers, the Report draws the following conclusion:
    “Keeping in view the several definitions given by the ulama, need we make any comment except that no two learned divines are agreed on this fundamental. If we attempt our own definition as each learned divine has done and that definition differs from that given by all others, we unanimously go out of the fold of Islam. And if we adopt the definition given by any one of the ulama, we remain Muslims according to the view of that alim but kafirs according to the definition of every one else.”

    (p. 218)

  • A Muslim says: June 21, 2010 at 1:55 am And thus now feared by the UK govt. My only question to UK Govt is “Why not now defend freadom of speach”? Only because you allow freadom of speach to those who are anti muslims.
    ===================

    Muslims should leave every Non-Muslim Country where Western Democracy is practiced and should apply for Only SUNNI MUSLIM COUNTIRES e.g. Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and UAE. Western Countries should kick every Muslim out of their countries.

    Secular Democratic – Anglo Saxon system and Islam are two different systems and instead of perverting both [i mean mixing it] one must choose between either one of them.

    If those who are living in West and enjoying Lucrative Jobs in Purely Infidel Setup and that too an Infidel Military Setup, and also have “ITCH” for Islam then Quran and Hadith should be ultimate for them. They should go back to their Islamic “Home Country” and start living in Muslim Society and should sacrifice Green Bucks and Social Security.

    Those who want to observe Islam, Veil and Islamic Culture should come back and live in Afghanistan and Northern Areas of Pakistan.

    إِنَّ الَّذِينَ تَوَفَّاهُمُ الْمَلآئِكَةُ ظَالِمِي أَنْفُسِهِمْ قَالُواْ فِيمَ كُنتُمْ قَالُواْ كُنَّا مُسْتَضْعَفِينَ فِي الأَرْضِ قَالْوَاْ أَلَمْ تَكُنْ أَرْضُ اللّهِ وَاسِعَةً فَتُهَاجِرُواْ فِيهَا فَأُوْلَـئِكَ مَأْوَاهُمْ جَهَنَّمُ وَسَاءتْ مَصِيرًا

    Lo! as for those whom the angels take (in death) while they wrong themselves, (the angels) will ask: In what were ye engaged? They will say: We were oppressed in the land. (The angels) will say: Was not Allah’s earth spacious that ye could have migrated therein? As for such, their habitation will be hell, an evil journey’s end; [AN-NISA (WOMEN) Chapter 4 Verse 97]

    Prophet Mohammad (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “I disown every Muslim who settles among the mushrikeen.” [Sunnan Abu Dawood]

    It is obligatory to migrate from the kaafir lands to the Muslim lands for those who are able to do that, if they are unable to practise their religion openly.

    Ibn al-‘Arabi al-Maaliki said: Hijrah (migration) means leaving dar al-harb [non-Muslim lands] and going to dar al-islam [Muslim lands]. This was obligatory at the time of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and remains so after his time for those who fear for their lives. From Nayl al-Awtaar, 8/33, by al-Shawkaani.

    Al-Haafiz Ibn Hajar said concerning the hadeeth, “I disown every Muslim who settles among the mushrikeen”:

    This is to be understood as referring to those who are not safe to practise their religion there. Fath al-Baari.

    If one want to live in the West then follow their Law and don’t complain about Prohibition of Veil, dont raise hue and cry when someone amongst them use ‘Freedom of Expression’ to practice Homosexuality and Lesbianism openly [what do you think when an underage or even adult Muslim male or female watch these acts of Hedonism? Wont this effect him or her? Forbidden as per Quran to even go near to those things which lead to Adultery].

    وَلاَ تَقْرَبُواْ الزِّنَى إِنَّهُ كَانَ فَاحِشَةً وَسَاء سَبِيلاً

    And come not near unto adultery. Lo! it is an abomination and an evil way.[AL-ISRA (ISRA’, THENIGHT JOURNEY, CHILDREN OF ISRAEL) Chapter 17 Verse 32]

    Even watching these things gives you wrong ideas?

    What about your Tax Money through which USA and other NATO Countries financing War On Terror and bombing Innocent Muslims? Forbidden in Quran to help Combatant Non-Muslims in any way. What do you think your Tax Money does? Undoubtedly the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) did not compromise in matters of his religion. When he was in Makkah, before the Hijrah, he used to pray openly, whilst they were looking on. After the Muslims became a distinct community, a specific style of dress was ordained for them, and they commanded to forsake anything else that was a symbol of kufr and was distinctive to the kuffaar, because this is imitation, and whoever imitates a people is one of them.

    How can the believer be content to live in the land of the Non Muslims where the rituals of kufr [Disbelief] are proclaimed openly and rule belongs to someone other than Allaah and His Messenger, seeing that with his own eyes, hearing that with his own ears and approving of it, and even starting to feel that he belongs there and living there with his wife and children, and feeling as comfortable there as he does in the Muslim lands, even though he and his wife and children are in such great danger and their religious commitment and morals are in such peril?

    AS PER PURE ISLAMIC LAW [FOR WHICH THIS UMMAH IS ITCHING] and since theses don’t exist in the West and that is why those who condemn Secular-Anglo-Saxon Western Democarcies should come back to ‘Islamic Countires’. Following are the salient feature of the Secular Democracies through which Islamic Political Activists Type of Muslims e.g. Dr Kaukab Sahab and those who belonged to Jamat-e-Islami and Ikwan but settled in the West, reap all the benefits and then shamelessly raise finger against the same system.

    “QUOTE”

    A- Foreign Exchange:

    1 – Dealing in buying and selling for the purpose of profit, and this dealing is usually done in major currencies or financial certificates (shares and bonds) or some types of products, and it may include trade in options, futures and the indexes of major markets.

    2 – Loans, which refers to the money given by the agent to the customer directly if the agent is a bank, or via a third party if the agent is not a bank.

    3 – Riba, which occurs in this transaction in the form of fees for delaying the deal. This is interest that is charged to the purchaser if he does not make a decision on the same day, and which may be a percentage of the loan or a set amount.

    4 – Commission, which is the money that the agent gets as a result of the investor’s (customer’s) dealing through him, and it is an agreed-upon percentage of the value of the sale or purchase.

    5 – The pledge, which is a commitment signed by the customer agreeing to leave the contract with the agent as a pledge for a loan, giving him the right to sell these contracts and take back the loan if the customer’s losses reach a specific percentage of the margin, unless the customer increases the pledge in order to compensate for a drop in the price of the product.

    Firstly: It involves obvious riba, which is represented by the addition to the amount of the loan which is called “paying fees for delaying the deal”. This is a kind of haraam riba. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “O you who believe! Fear Allaah and give up what remains (due to you) from Ribaa (from now onward) if you are (really) believers. 279. And if you do not do it, then take a notice of war from Allaah and His Messenger but if you repent, you shall have your capital sums. Deal not unjustly (by asking more than your capital sums), and you shall not be dealt with unjustly (by receiving less than your capital sums)” [al-Baqarah 2:278-279]

    Secondly: The agent stipulates that the customer must deal through him, which leads to combining both giving a loan for something in return and paying commission, which is akin to combining giving a loan and selling at the same time, which is forbidden in sharee’ah because the Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “It is not permissible to give a loan and sell at the same time…” The hadeeth was narrated by Abu Dawood (3/384) and al-Tirmidhi (3/526), who said it is a hasan saheeh hadeeth. In this case he has benefited from his loan, and the fuqaha’ are unanimously agreed that every loan that brings a benefit is haraam riba.

    Thirdly: Dealings that are done in this manner in the global markets usually involve many contracts that are haraam according to sharee’ah, such as:

    1- Dealing in bonds, which comes under the heading of riba which is haraam. This was stated in a resolution of the Islamic Fiqh Council in Jeddah, no. 60, in its sixth session.

    2- Dealing indiscriminately in company shares. The fourth statement of the Islamic Fiqh Council of the Muslim World League in its fourteenth session in 1415 AH stated that it is haraam to deal in the shares of companies whose main purposes are haraam, or some of their dealings involve riba.

    3- Selling currencies is usually done without the hand to hand exchange which makes them permissible according to sharee’ah.

    4- Dealing in options and futures. A resolution of the Islamic Fiqh Council in Jeddah no. (63), in its sixth session, stated that options are not permissible according to sharee’ah, because the object of dealing in these contracts is not money or services or a financial obligation which it is permissible to exchange. The same applies to futures and trading in indexes.

    5- In some cases the agent is selling something that he does not possess, and selling what one does not possess is forbidden in sharee’ah.

    B- Establishing Insurance

    1) All kinds of commercial insurance are clearly and undoubtedly ribaa (interest/usury). Insurance is the sale of money for money, of a greater or lesser amount, with a delay in one of the payments. It involves riba al-fadl (interest-based transaction) and riba al-nas’ (interest to be charged if payment is delayed beyond the due date), because the insurance companies take people’s money and promise to pay them more or less money when a specific accident against which insurance has been taken out happens. This is riba, and riba is forbidden in the Qur’aan, in many aayaat.

    2) All kinds of commercial insurance are based on nothing but gambling which is haraam according to the Qur’aan:

    “O you who believe! Intoxicants (all kinds of alcoholic drinks), and gambling, and Al-Ansaab (stone altars for sacrifice to idols etc.) and Al-Azlaam (arrows for seeking luck or decision) are an abomination of Shaytaan’s (Satan’s) handiwork. So avoid (strictly all) that (abomination) in order that you may be successful” (al-Maa’idah 5:90 – interpretation of the meaning).

    All kinds of insurance are kinds of playing with chances. They tell you, Pay this much money, then if this happens to you we will give you this much. This is pure gambling. Insisting on differentiating between insurance and gambling is pure stubbornness that is unacceptable to any sound mind. The insurance companies themselves admit that insurance is gambling.

    3) All kinds of insurance are forms of uncertainty, and transactions which involve uncertainty are forbidden according to many saheeh ahaadeeth, such as the hadeeth narrated by Abu Hurayrah (may Allaah be pleased with him):

    “The Messenger of Allaah (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) forbade transactions determined by throwing a stone and transactions which involved some uncertainty.” (Narrated by Muslim).

    [“Transactions determined by throwing a stone” – this was a type of transaction that was prevalent in the markets of pre-Islamic Arabia, whereby a stone was thrown by either the buyer or the seller, and whatever it touched, its transaction became binding. “Transactions which involved some uncertainty” – is a transaction in which there is no guarantee that the seller can deliver the goods for which he receives payment. Footnotes from the translation of Saheeh Muslim. (Translator)].

    All forms of commercial insurance are based on uncertainty of the most extreme kind. Insurance companies and those who sell insurance refuse to insure cases except where there is clear uncertainty in whether or not the condition being insured against will happen or not. In other words, the condition being insured against must have a possibility of happening or not happening (as opposed to, for example, someone who has a pre-existing condition, such as a person who is on death row applying for life insurance–translator.) Moreover, this transaction involves something uncertain, which is when an accident will happen and the extent of the damage caused. Hence insurance combines three kinds of extreme uncertainty.

    4) All kinds of commercial insurance consume people’s wealth unjustly, which is haraam according to the Qur’aan:

    “O you who believe! Eat not up your property among yourselves unjustly” (al-Nisaa’ 4:29 – interpretation of the meaning).

    All forms of commercial insurance are fraudulent transactions aimed at consuming people’s wealth unjustly. The precise statistics calculated by one of the German experts state that what people get back of what has been taken from them is no more than 2.9%.

    Insurance is an immense loss for the nation, and there is no evidence or excuse to be found in the actions of the kuffaar who have lost the ties of kinship and friendship and are therefore forced to resort to insurance, which they hate as much as they hate death.

    These are only some of the violations of sharee’ah which insurance is essentially based upon. There are numerous other violations which we do not have room to mention here, and there is no need to do so, because just one of the violations which we have mentioned above is sufficient to make insurance one of the things which is most prohibited in the sharee’ah of Allaah.

    It is a shame that some people are deceived by the ways in which the insurance companies make insurance attractive and confuse them by calling it “co-operative” or “mutual support” or “Islamic”, or other names which do not change the unjust nature of insurance in the slightest.

    The insurance companies’ claim that the ‘ulamaa’ have issued fatwaas stating that so-called “co-operative insurance” is halaal, is a lie. The reason for this confusion is that some insurance companies approached the ‘ulamaa’ with a deceitful set-up which has nothing to do with any kind of insurance, but they said that it was a kind of insurance which they called “co-operative insurance” (to make it sound attractive and to confuse the people). They said that it was purely in the nature of a donation, and that it was a kind of the co-operation enjoined by Allaah in the aayah (interpretation of the meaning): “Help you one another in Al-Birr and At-Taqwa (virtue, righteousness and piety)…” (al-Maa’idah 5:2), and that the aim was to co-operate in alleviating the overwhelming disasters that may befall people. But in fact what they called co-operative insurance was just like any other kind of insurance; the only difference was in the
    way in which it was set up, not in its essential nature. It was far from being any kind of simple donation or co-operation in righteousness and piety; in fact it is a kind of co-operation in sin and transgression. It was not aimed at helping to relieve the distress of calamities, but at depriving people of their wealth by unjust means, which is absolutely haraam, as are other kinds of insurance. Hence what they proposed to the ‘ulamaa’ is not even insurance at all.

    With regard to the claim made by some, that part of the premium (money paid to the insurer) is returned, this does not change anything and does not free insurance from the taint of ribaa, gambling, transactions based on uncertainty, unjust consumption of people’s wealth and going against the principle of trusting in Allaah (tawakkul), and other kinds of haraam actions. Insurance is deceit and confusion. Anyone who wishes to learn more should refer to the essay al-Ta’meen wa Ahkaamuhu (Insurance and its rulings). I call on every Muslim who has pride in his religion and whose hopes are focused on Allaah and the Last Day to fear Allaah and to avoid all kinds of insurance, no matter how attractive their proponents make them, for they are undoubtedly forbidden. In this manner he will protect his religion and his wealth, and he will be blessed with security from the Owner of security, may He be exalted.

    3- Banking

    Riba is emphatically forbidden in Islam. Allaah has condemned the one who does that and has declared war on him, and spoken of his bad end on the Day of Resurrection. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “Those who eat Ribaa will not stand (on the Day of Resurrection) except like the standing of a person beaten by Shaytaan (Satan) leading him to insanity. That is because they say: ‘Trading is only like Ribaa,’ whereas Allaah has permitted trading and forbidden Ribaa. So whosoever receives an admonition from his Lord and stops eating Ribaa, shall not be punished for the past; his case is for Allaah (to judge); but whoever returns (to Ribaa), such are the dwellers of the Fire — they will abide therein.

    Allaah will destroy Ribaa and will give increase for Sadaqaat (deeds of charity, alms). And Allaah likes not the disbelievers, sinners”

    [al-Baqarah 2:275, 276]

    “O you who believe! Fear Allaah and give up what remains (due to you) from Ribaa (from now onward) if you are (really) believers.

    And if you do not do it, then take a notice of war from Allaah and His Messenger but if you repent, you shall have your capital sums. Deal not unjustly (by asking more than your capital sums), and you shall not be dealt with unjustly (by receiving less than your capital sums)”

    [al-Baraqah 2:278, 279]

    The Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) cursed the one who consumes riba, the one who pays it, the one who writes it down and the two who witness it, and he said, “They are all the same.” Narrated by Muslim, 1598, from the hadeeth of Jaabir (may Allaah be pleased with him).

    And he (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “A dirham of riba consumed knowingly by a man is worse before Allaah than committing zina thirty-six times.” Narrated by Ahmad and al-Tabaraani, classed as saheeh by al-Albaani in Saheeh al-Jaami’, no. 3375.

    And there are other texts which point to the enormity and abhorrent nature of this crime.

    The Islamic financial system does not approve of any transaction that includes riba, rather the sharee’ah forbids certain transactions so as to prevent the means that lead to riba.

    Secondly:

    The banks that exist nowadays are all riba based banks, with a few rare exceptions. Just because a bank is located in a Muslim country does not mean that it is an Islamic bank. Most of these banks are connected to Jewish and Crusader banks overseas. It is most regrettable that in the Muslim lands which are home to more than a billion Muslims there is no Islamic bank that is free from riba, apart from a few institutions.

    So the decision makers among the Muslims have to pay due attention to this matter and establish an independent Islamic banking system. There are scholars and people who are able to work in this field, and there is a great deal of capital, praise be to Allaah.

    Thirdly:

    The true Islamic financial system is a system that is free of riba, because it is a system that is derived from the Book of Allaah and the Sunnah of His Messenger (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). Your saying in your question that you have noticed riba in financial transactions in theIslamic banks needs further explanation. Perhaps you think that some of these transactions involve riba when they do not.

    We ask Allaah to set the Muslims’ affairs straight and to help those in authority to do what is right and proper. Praise be to Allaah, the Lord of the Worlds.

    4- Adult Franchise and Voting Power:

    Democracy is a man-made system, meaning rule by the people for the people. Thus it is contrary to Islam, because rule is for Allaah, the Most High, the Almighty, and it is not permissible to give legislative rights to any human being, no matter who he is.

    Undoubtedly the democratic system is one of the modern forms of shirk, in terms of obedience and following, or legislation, as it denies the sovereignty of the Creator and His absolute right to issue laws, and ascribes that right to human beings. Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “You do not worship besides Him but only names which you have named (forged) — you and your fathers — for which Allaah has sent down no authority. The command (or the judgement) is for none but Allaah. He has commanded that you worship none but Him (i.e. His Monotheism); that is the (true) straight religion, but most men know not” [Yoosuf 12:40]

    “The decision is only for Allaah” [al-An’aam 6:57]

    Secondly:

    The one who understands the true nature of the democratic system and the ruling thereon, then he nominates himself or someone else (for election) is approving of this system, and is working with it, is in grave danger, because the democratic system is contrary to Islam and approving of it and participating in it are actions that imply apostasy and being beyond the pale of Islam.

    It is not permissible for a Muslim to nominate himself in the hope that he can become part of a system which rules according to something other than that which Allaah has revealed and operates according to something other than the sharee’ah of Islam. It is not permissible for a Muslim to vote for him or for anyone else who will work in that government, unless the one who nominates himself or those who vote for him hope that by getting involved in that they will be able to change the system to one that operates according to the sharee’ah of Islam, and they are using this as a means to overcome the system of government, provided that the one who nominates himself will not accept any position after being elected except one that does not go against Islamic sharee’ah. End quote.

    The Muslims in a country that is not governed according to Islamic sharee’ah should do their utmost and strive as much as they can to bring about rule according to Islamic sharee’ah, and they should unite in helping the party which is known will rule in accordance with Islamic sharee’ah. As for supporting one who calls for non-implementation of Islamic sharee’ah, that is not permissible, rather it may lead a person to kufr, because Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “And so judge (you O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) among them by what Allaah has revealed and follow not their vain desires, but beware of them lest they turn you (O Muhammad صلى الله عليه وسلم) far away from some of that which Allaah has sent down to you. And if they turn away, then know that Allaah’s Will is to punish them for some sins of theirs. And truly, most of men are Faasiqoon (rebellious and disobedient to Allaah).

    50. Do they then seek the judgement of (the days of) Ignorance? And who is better in judgement than Allaah for a people who have firm Faith”

    [al-Maa’idah 5:49-50].

    Hence when Allaah stated that those who do not rule in accordance with Islamic sharee’ah are guilty of kufr, He warned against helping them or taking them as allies or close friends, and He commanded the believers to fear Him if they were truly believers. He says (interpretation of the meaning):

    “O you who believe! Take not as Awliyaa’ (protectors and helpers) those who take your religion as a mockery and fun from among those who received the Scripture (Jews and Christians) before you, and nor from among the disbelievers; and fear Allaah if you indeed are true believers”

    [al-Maa’idah 5:57]

    And Allaah is the Source of strength. May Allaah send blessings and peace upon our Prophet Muhammad and his family and companions. End quote.

    “UNQUOTE”

  • Dear Mughal,
    Does above of all has any relevance to the topic at all?
    And your answers/research does not make sense. Its called “Sawal Gandem Jawab Channa”.
    I am saying why UK has double standards, they stop Dr Naik and support Danish cartoonists freedom of speech. You started to throw a research about what people, living abroard, do and what they should do. This is not the topic here. You pasted few pages on what muslims abroad do?!
    Is this the reason why you were thrown out of PK intelligence at the age of 42 (incompetent and irrelevant researcher:)
    or this is due to too much heat in Jacobabad, where you live.
    Kidding aside, I liked your answer about the full time job. I agree, it should be job of every Muslim to separate Falsehood from Truth. I however, urge you to not throw too much irrelevant research at the poor commenters and do not attack any one coming to this site, like you did to me. If you do so, then there will be only your like minded people on this site and truth will not come to the surface:)

    Your answer to following does not make sense, here it is:

    Dr Zakir Naik is an educated person. Unlike most of the mullahs, he can argue with others. And thus now feared by the UK govt. My only question to UK Govt is “Why not now defend freadom of speach”?
    Only because you allow freadom of speach to those who are anti muslims.
    At the end I urge typical muslims to write their views and not let these paid opinion skewers to paint an untrue picture of Islam and good people.

    And at the very end. let me state this clearly
    “We the muslims do not welcome this ban, you have shown one more time your double standards here (Supporting Danish cartoonist for free speach and stopping Dr. Zakir from Free Speach)”

  • A Muslim says: – June 21, 2010 at 5:49 am Dear Mughal,
    Does above of all has any relevance to the topic at all?

    MAM: Yes, to those who have common sense to relate History, Islamic History, Islamic Politics and General Situation within the Muslim Societies here and in abroad. Until and unless Muslim Scholar would put their own house in order nothing will change.

    A Muslim: And your answers/research does not make sense. Its called “Sawal Gandem Jawab Channa”.

    MAM: Very much related with the topic. If you cannot comprehend then what can I do.

    A MUSLIM: I am saying why UK has double standards, they stop Dr Naik and support Danish cartoonists freedom of speech. You started to throw a research about what people, living abroard, do and what they should do. This is not the topic here. You pasted few pages on what muslims abroad do?!

    MAM: Read it again I have that Muslims who object against West should leave the west as per Quran and Hadith referecnes above.

    A MUSLIM: Is this the reason why you were thrown out of PK intelligence at the age of 42 (incompetent and irrelevant researcher:) or this is due to too much heat in Jacobabad, where you live.

    AM: LOL) One who is hiding behind an anonymous ID should ‘t raise finger. I resign and try to search my blog you may find many things about my Past.

    A Msulim: Kidding aside, I liked your answer about the full time job. I agree, it should be job of every Muslim to separate Falsehood from Truth. I however, urge you to not throw too much irrelevant research at the poor commenters and do not attack any one coming to this site, like you did to me. If you do so, then there will be only your like minded people on this site and truth will not come to the surface:)

    MAM: Do you know what Quran and Hadith says about “Kidding” without verifying. What is Truth? Define? and above all I say and show myself openly. If you raise finger on a Muslim without proof and hiding behind an Anonmymous ID then you have no right to lecture me what to talk of anyone.

    A Muslim: Your answer to following does not make sense, here it is: “We the muslims do not welcome this ban, you have shown one more time your double standards here (Supporting Danish cartoonist for free speach and stopping Dr. Zakir from Free Speach)”

    Aamir Mughal: Let me make it more clear. When Muslim Preacher is not allowed in UK then those Muslims who object on this ban should surrender their British Passport and Nationality and settle in Saud Arabia by applying the Quranic Verses [the reply you couldn’t get] and apply for the Saudi Nationality with Original Passports [mostly Pakistanis] and see what happens at the Airport. Why don’t Saudi Arabia allow Non-Muslim to preach outside Kaa’bah. Why this double standards.

  • Controversial Muslim televangelist Zakir Naik banned from Toronto conference Kathryn Blaze Carlson The National Post, Toronto

    http://news.nationalpost.com/2010/06/21/controversial-muslim-televangelist-zakir-naik-banned-from-toronto-conference/

    An Indian Muslim televangelist who was banned from Britain last week for “unacceptable behaviour” will not be allowed into Canada to speak at an upcoming conference in Toronto, sources familiar with the situation have told the National Post.

    Dr. Zakir Naik, who has said “every Muslim should be a terrorist” and that Jews are “our staunchest enemy,” was to headline next month’s Journey of Faith Conference — which is billed as one of North America’s largest Islamic conferences and is expected to attract upward of 10,000 people.

    Dr. Naik, the Mumbai-based founder of Peace TV and a widely respected lecturer in India, has a laundry list of views that could have led to his exclusion from the U.K. and Canada, both of which require an Indian citizen to obtain a visitor visa.
    The 44-year-old medical doctor recommends capital punishment for homosexuals and the death penalty for those who abandon Islam as their faith.

    He has said that a man is within his right to beat his wife “lightly,” though in a July 2009 YouTube video he cautioned against hitting her on the face or leaving a mark. The “Keep Zakir Naik Out of Canada” Facebook group, which was launched over the weekend, also points out his view that western women make themselves “more susceptible to rape” by wearing revealing clothing.

    Among the chief reasons, British Home Secretary Theresa May decided to quash Dr. Naik’s U.K. speaking tour later this month, however, were comments he made in a widely circulated 2007 video.

    “If [Osama bin Laden] is fighting the enemies of Islam, I am for him … If he is terrorizing a terrorist, if he is terrorizing America the terrorist, the biggest terrorist, I am with him,” said Dr. Naik, who has delivered hundreds of talks in India, Canada, the U.S. and the Middle East. “Every Muslim should be a terrorist.”

    Tarek Fatah, founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress, said he and the congress have been informed that Dr. Naik will be “stopped at the airport,” and sources familiar with the situation confirmed Dr. Naik does not have a visa to enter Canada.
    “We are very happy that government agencies, having been made aware of his statements, have taken this decision,” Mr. Fatah said, adding that he sent a mass email to federal MPs last week, warning them of Dr. Naik’s views. “We certainly don’t want hate-mongers to come here.”
    “To me, the rules as to who can come into this country were written for this kind of person,” echoed Bernie Farber, CEO of the Canadian Jewish Congress. “The comments are highly inflammatory, and highly provocative. When you put them together in one cauldron, you have a stew of hatred.”

    Dr. Naik, president of the Islamic Research Foundation in Mumbai, was reached via email on Monday but would not comment on his pending visit to Toronto. In fact, Dr. Naik may not yet know that he is unwelcome in Canada, sources said.

    In his email to the National Post, Dr. Naik pointed to a June 20 statement regarding the “overzealous and islamophobic exclusion order” issued by the U.K. The statement seeks to clarify his comments, which the foundation argues were “taken out of context.”
    The Journey of Faith Conference is chaired by Imam Saed Rageah, whose Toronto mosque, the Abu Huraira Centre, made headlines last fall after a group of young worshippers vanished and were feared to have joined a Somali militant group. Imam Ragaeh declined an interview request yesterday, but passed along a web video via email of Dr. Naik defending his comments and promising to challenge the U.K. ban.

    According to the Journey of Faith event website, the “hope” of the July 2-4 conference at the downtown Metro Toronto Convention Centre is for Muslims to “renew their forgotten relationship” with the Quran. As of last night, the site still listed Dr. Naik as a featured speaker. Citizenship and Immigration Canada declined to comment on the case yesterday, citing the Privacy Act.

  • Dr.Naik is a well known scholar.He talks about Islam with reference to quran and sahee hadith . He never preached anything hatred. He speaks everything with hikmah but as per Quran and teachings of Prophet Mohammad (SAW) Those who critcise and welcome ban on Dr sahab are not aware of his contribution towards Deen.May Alllah guide them
    .I hope and trust truth will prevail and zakir Bhai will serve more and more for the betterment of Ummah.Inshaallah.
    Wasalam

    ========================

    Agreed but Gay and Lesbian Lifestyle is a Sexual Orientation in the West and Punishable by Death in Islam. So why lecture West instead Dr Naik should issue Fatwa against those Muslims who are living in “Democratic Brothel” of the West.

  • Every Salafi Dramatists [even the converts like Abdul Rehman Green and Yousuf Estes] should be banned from participating in any kind of “Inter Faith Dialogue” until and unless there is Un-conditional Guarantee of Equal and Basic Fundamental Rights to every citizen and expatriates settled in Saudi Arabia, UAE, Qatar, Behrain, and Oman [these are the countries who thrust their ideologies through books circulated through “Saudi Publication House Daarus Salam” via donating millions of Riyals and Dirhams to Naik and other such Salafi Dramatists coming out of wood work]

    More ‘hate’ on speakers’ list Kathryn Blaze Carlson, National Post · Wednesday, Jun. 23, 2010 http://www.nationalpost.com/More+hate+speakers+list/3188467/story.html

    A massive upcoming Islamic conference in Toronto, which was to be headlined by an Indian televangelist until he was recently banned from Canada for his inflammatory statements, features a list of speakers whose past comments against Jews, homosexuals and the West have raised red flags in other countries.

    The Journey of Faith Conference — billed as North America’s largest Islamic conference — features such personalities as Abdur Raheem Green, who has advocated “fighting jihad” and who was reportedly invited by the Christmas Day airline bomber to address British students in 2007, and Sheikh Hussein Yee, who once said Jews are the “extremists of the world” and will “go to Hell.”

    The chairman of the conference — which is slated to attract upwards of 10,000 people to the city next month — is Imam Saed Rageah, whose Toronto mosque, the Abu Huraira Centre, made headlines last fall after several young worshippers vanished and were feared to have joined a Somali militant group.

    The National Post reported yesterday that the conference’s main speaker, Peace TV founder Dr. Zakir Naik, will not be allowed to enter Canada because of concerns surrounding past statements such as “every Muslim should be a terrorist,” Jews are “our staunchest enemy,” and “If [Osama bin Laden] is fighting the enemies of Islam, I am for him.”

    But while Dr. Naik recently grabbed headlines around the world — first for his exclusion from the U.K. ahead of a speaking tour later this month — the conference itself has managed to keep a relatively low profile, despite its controversial list of a dozen speakers and chairman.

    Although the speaker bios posted to the event website are laudatory and innocuous, the reality — in some instances, and sometimes dating back two decades — reveals a less favourable portrait of some speakers.

    Mr. Green, for example, was put on a “movement alert list” and barred from entering Australia in 2005 after a government official accused him of “spreading hate.” And another Journey of Faith Conference speaker, Sheik Riaz Ansary, is described as having worked with Dr. Bilal Philips, who was reportedly named by the U.S. government as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Center bombing and who was banned from entering the U.K. last weekend to attend a conference, according to his blog.

    “They appear to be competing against each other in their level of hate, and Zakir Naik was the star performer,” said Tarek Fatah, founder of the Muslim Canadian Congress.

    Dr. Naik’s 16-year-old son, Fariq, is also listed as a speaker, and is described on the website as the child of “an illustrious father and world renowned orator on Islam and comparative religion.”

    Likewise on the event program is Abdullah Hakim Quick, who was reportedly uninvited from an April conference in Sweden after it surfaced that, many years ago, he said the Islamic position on homosexuality was “death.”

    “If these extreme voices are given a platform, then very easily people could assume that these extreme views represent the whole Muslim faith, and obviously they don’t,” said Rev. Brent Hawkes, of Toronto’s Metropolitan Community Church, who performed Canada’s first same-sex marriage.

    The chairman of the conference is Imam Saed Rageah, whose Toronto mosque, the Abu Huraira Centre, made headlines last fall after several young worshippers vanished and were feared to have joined a Somali militant group.

    Imam Rageah also incited controversy last year after he used a prayer to call for Allah to “destroy” the enemies of Islam from within.

    Imam Rageah declined an interview request, but this week passed along a web video via email of Dr. Naik defending his comments and promising to challenge the U.K. ban.

    According to the Journey of Faith event website, the “hope” of the July 2-4 conference at the downtown Metro Toronto Convention Centre is for Muslims to “renew their forgotten relationship” with the Koran.

    ———

    INVITED SPEAKERS TO FAITH CONFERENCE

    Among the personalities slated to speak at the upcoming Journey of Faith Conference in Toronto are the following:

    Abdur Raheen Green A British-based lecturer and convert to Islam from Christianity. In an undated YouTube video calling for Muslims to assist the jihad in anyway they can, Mr. Green also said: “Americans are worse terrorists than what the Muslims could ever do. We know that. And the Jews they are worse terrorists.”

    Abdullah Hakim Quick Director of the Discover Islam Centre of Cape Town, has been an Imam in Los Angeles, Toronto, and Cape Town. According to a 2004 statement by the Broadcasting Standards Authority in New Zealand, Mr. Quick said that homosexuals were dropping dead from AIDS and “they want to take us all down with them.” He has reportedly stated that the Islamic position on homosexuality is “death.”

    Sheikh Hussein Yee President of the Al Khadeem Organization in Malaysia. In an undated YouTube video, Sheikh Yee said: “The most extreme nation in this world is the Jews. So if they use ‘extremists,’ it doesn’t apply to Muslims. It applies to the Jews. They are the extremists of the world. That’s why they kill Palestinians every day…. [Jews] go to Hell.”

    Sheikh Riaz Ansary Author and student at the International Islamic University of Malaysia. On the Journey of Faith Conference website, Sheikh Ansary is said to have “worked as a translator and editor with Dr. Bilal Philips.” Dr. Philips was reportedly named by the U.S. government as an unindicted co-conspirator in the 1993 World Trade Centre bombing and, according to his personal blog, was banned last weekend from entering the U.K. to attend a conference.

    Sheikh Saed Rageah Chairman of the Journey of Faith Conference and Imam at Toronto’s Abu Haraira mosque. At Abu Haraira mosque last fall, Imam Rageah used derogatory language against Jews and Christians, and called on God to “damn” the “infidels.” He said: “Allah protect us from the evil agenda of these people; Allah destroy them from within themselves, and do not allow them to raise their heads in destroying Islam.” Imam Rageah also made headlines last year after a group of young worshippers from his mosque were feared to have joined a Somali militant group.

    Asalamu Alaikum.
    To Convince You although i dont have much knowledge about Islam still i want to suggest you to go through islamic history and see the people who speak truth they where hated, punished ,banned for some time . But latter on truth prevailed and they realized and most of them accepted Islam and practized islam with full eeman. But some people who were arrogant although knowing that Prophet Mohammad(SAW) was right still didnot accet islam like that of the example of uncle of Prophet Mohammad Abu Jehal. May be that Dr zakir is not correct 100% which nobody is as a human being still i cann,t forget his contribution and the understanding and removing misconceptions about islam among muslims and our nonmuslim brothers .
    Dr naik had several debates with so many scholars of non islamic faiths ,let this time also have a debate face to face and prove what is truth and what is falsehood.
    Those who claim freedom of speach should not implement double standard and ban anybody wiyhout any arguement and discussion .
    Wasalam.

  • Dear Shamim Sahab,

    Replies are para wise:

    Asalamu Alaikum. To Convince You although i dont have much knowledge about Islam still i want to suggest you to go through islamic history and see the people who speak truth they where hated, punished ,banned for some time .

    AM: I haven’t got any knowledge either but I just use common sense with the little bit knowledge of Holy Scripture. I have complete set of Islamic History by Tabari [the First detailed book on Islamic History], History by Ibn Kathir [Al Bidaya Wal Nihaya], History and Muqqaddemah by Ibn Khaldun, Tabaqat ibn Sa’ad by Ibn Sa’ad, Wafiyatul Iyan Ibn Khalikan, Usadul Ghaba by Ibn Athir [Biographies of 8, 000 Companions of the Prophet Mohammad [PBUH], and countless others on Sects and School of Thoughts by Ibn Jawzi, Ibn Hazm, and Shehrestani. If you suggest more books I will try to add more in my personal library.

    Shamim: But latter on truth prevailed and they realized and most of them accepted Islam and practized islam with full eeman. But some people who were arrogant although knowing that Prophet Mohammad(SAW) was right still didnot accet islam like that of the example of uncle of Prophet Mohammad Abu Jehal.

    AM: Abu Jehel [Real name was Omar Bin Hisham] wasn’t the Unlce of Prophet Mohammad [PBUH], Uncles who didn’t embrace Islam were Abu Talib [real name Abd Munaf bin Abdul Muttalib], and Abu Leheb [Abdul Uzza bin Abdul Muttalib] {Ref Bukhari, all the books I mentioned above and for Abu Leheb reference is Quran].

    Shamim: May be that Dr zakir is not correct 100% which nobody is as a human being still i cann,t forget his contribution and the understanding and removing misconceptions about islam among muslims and our nonmuslim brothers .

    AM: the issue not whether Zakir Naik is correct or not, the issue is for the Islamic Scholars to sit together and extinguish the fire which is burning within the Islamic Societies but they have left Islamic Societies alone at the Mercy of Anarchist Mullahs and trying to convince West on Islam. My point is only this that they should debate within Islam with the Scholars of different School of Thought and unite on single interpretation of Islam and if they cannot do this then there is no use to preach Islam to the West. They should also pay attention for the Reforms and Way of Governance within the Islamic Societies. Look around at the State of Affairs of Muslim Countries. Not a single Islamic country have a good track record of the services to their own citizens and when they talk of Islam’s Glory all over the world then it makes me puke.

    Shamim: Dr naik had several debates with so many scholars of non islamic faiths ,let this time also have a debate face to face and prove what is truth and what is falsehood.

    AM: Islam is Truth and there is no question about it but which Islam? Sunni, Shia, Ahle-Hadith, Deobandi, Barelvi ……

    Shamim: Those who claim freedom of speach should not implement double standard and ban anybody wiyhout any arguement and discussion .

    AM: Look around in the “alleged Islamic World”!!! Do you find anywhere “Press Freedom or Freedom of Expression” particularly in the Oil Rich Arab Countries. Do Shia have the liberty to take out procession in UAE, Kuwait, Qatar and Saudi Arabia, do Quadiyanis have even the security of life, and list goes on and on…Pakistanis, Indians, and Bengalis [Specifically Muslims] cannot become Citizens of Saudi Arabia [House of Lord] whereas all the three can become Citizen of USA AND UK after a certain period of time whereas Muslim Pakistani or Indian cannot even marry a Local Arab countries mentioned above [Araboon ko to achchi tarha Chithar langany Chahiyan takay Dimagh mein say Hawa Niklay] and then same Arabs finance Abdul Rehman Green, Zakir Naik, Yousuf Estes , Abu Amenah Bilal Philip to “bombard” Islam on us. I say ban every Salafi or Mullah taking aid from Arab Countries mentioned above until and unless these Saudi or Kuwaiti, Qatari or UAE Rulers mend their ways.

    Allah doesn’t need the help of Arabs or Irani Ayatullahs to protect Islam, Allah is self sufficient to do that single handedly.

    First deserve then desire.

  • asalamu alaikum

    Bhai Jan
    i fully agree with you on some issues regarding union of all scholars and something which added my knowledge to some extent.
    Dear brother in my opinion a muslim is a muslim if how believes in one Allah,One Prophet (SAW) and One quran , their is no shia,no sunni ,no Barelvi no ahalhadees or any other group .
    leaving aside conflicts if we will follow the fundamentals of islam and teach and convince our non muslims brothers as per the teachings of prophet mohammad (SAW) we will definitely succeed here and hereafter .
    difference of opinion will be their in understanding of Quran but let us follow where we are clear that their is no superiority with respect to arabs or non arabns , black or white, shia or sunny ,etc etc
    dear brother i am not a scholar but a human being full of errors . may allah show me a right path and you too also.
    Allah will be protecting islam and Dr.naik is also a human being and in my opinion Dr naik is striving to understand and convince people
    in a way which is the need of the day as the present age is the age of science and technology with the aid of which we are chating each other presently.
    Let us not fight each other, follow which is common in all religiongs for time being and common in all socalled firqas .
    Allah will guide us Inshaallah.

  • Dr. Zakir Naik is not only a good Muslim but he is a very good human being. He always condemns Terrorism and their activities whether they are from Muslims or Non Muslims. He always condemns the killing of innocent human beings. He is a symbol of Peace. Those who don’t know about him much, watch him on Peace TV. Watch his public lectures “Universal Brotherhood”, “Is Terrorism is a Muslim Monopoly”, “Women Rights in Islam”. His English is very clear and plain. Any human with little knowledge can understand his message of Peace.Theresa failed to understand his plain english. Definitely this is more of Political benefits.

  • I am really fed up with one Mr. Amir Mugal’s statements which seems he is criticising, on the otherhand he is reasonable. But finally it is not understoios what he wants.
    Coming to Dr. Zakir, I really rate him a man of scholar who removes misconceptions among the religions- eg look for so many misconceptions still exists in Hinduism, christianity etc.
    A very simple question to all- What Dr. Zakir explains on similarities and misconceptions say in Hinduism, and if he could not testify them with strong references, do you believe Indian Hindus allowed him to speak from Bombay? Look in his gathering, not only Muslims, thousands of Hindus also gather and listen and they all satisfied.
    I have a great faith on him as a contemporary anlyser of present day religion.
    I also strongly hope, the response Dr. Zakir has produced on his banning to UK, the ban woulod soon be revrsed and you all will see, UK will issue him visa.
    Best wishes to Dr. Zakir

  • Ban upon his lectures is unjustifiable. He gives his description in a scientific way. he clears the misconception regarding the Islam which is unfortunately most misunderstood religion of the world. If ban is imposed upon his lectures it will make this religion more misunderstood religion. Every one knows whether it is conspiracy or not and muslim of the world are very angry, it will add sever bitterness in the relation. Dr Zakir is always against innocent killing and violence the blame which is imposed upon him is out of context
    India should feel proud of having such a scholar who is guiding the community in a proper way, India should write this message to UK.

  • Who says he is preaching Islam?
    What authority he has to explain Islam?
    By qualification he is a doctor , No body has right to explain Islam until he is :
    1)Should beleive in all the blessings of Allah on His Prophet Muhammad (sallAllaah hu alihi wasalam)
    2)admirer of Prophet Muhamad (salAllaah hu alihi wasalam), his Family and Sahabah (Razi Allah anhuma )
    3) He has an authentic degree in ISLAM

    Now see how zakir fullfills:
    1)
    Further He is follower of man (Abdul wahab) who barked that he will even destroy the Tomb of Sacred Prophet…….. Muhammed (May Allaah bless him)
    So he has no ties with Islam at all !!

    zakir says the suicide bombers are alive while he denys and says the Prophet Muhammad (salAllaah hu alihi wasalam) the leader of all is not alive. ……..(zakir can be declared out of islam on just this statement )

    –zakir Favours the (beasty) killer “yazeed” Of Imam Hussain(Razi Allah Anhu ) (many proof present on youtube)
    So he lacks the “Essential Love” in Islam.

    Further by this favour he proves his admiration for Beasts.

    3) Zakir has no valid degree in Islam. In Islam the lectures by such an illiterate are HARAM.
    Lectures are far above , even the man who even knows 2000 Hadeeth CANNOT give a Single valid Fatwa then how can he?

    A case should be filed against zakir and all such and there shoul be a ban on their litrature and videos to avoid false preaching of Islam in the whole world .
    Bombing in tomb of Data Gang Baksh is a result of only such illegal explanations
    May Allah give pakistani govt. courage to ruin these preachers and their Litrature (Ameen)

  • Bismillah Hirrah Maa Nirraheem
    His Prophet Muhammed (sallAllaahu Alai wa AAlehi wasallam)

    There are many requirements for one who want to explain Islam

    1) He should accept all the blessings of Allaah on His Prophet Muhammed (sallAllaahu Alai wa AAlehi wasallam)
    2) He should pay respect and be a true admirer of the Children and Fellows of Prophet Muhammed (sallAllaahu Alai wa AAlehi wasallam)
    3) He should have a highest level valid Islamic degree

    Lets see the how zakir fullfills:

    1) He follows the person (abdul wahab) who said on the board to destroy the grave of Prophet Muhammed (sallAllaahu Alai wa AAlehi wasallam)

    He say that Prophet Muhammed ( the king of all saints and martayors) is (muazAllah) dead
    and in other speaches says that the suicide bombers are alive

    How dare he to bark such words! Surely he has no link with Islam

    2) He says that the most notorious killer yazeed of Prophet,s Grandson…. (sallAllaahu Alai wa AAlehi wasallam)
    as good and justice ( the youtube contains many such clips)

    Again it shows his hatred with the Children of Prophet Muhammed(sallAllaahu Alai wa AAlehi wasallam)
    and Love with the historical dictators and beasts

    3) With respect to his qualification he is a doctor. In Islam the explanation of quran by a person who doesnot have a proper higlevel degree in Islam is ILLegal
    For Example: Even the person who has learnt 1000 Hadeeth by heart CANNOT give a SiNGLE FATWA.

    Then how dare zakir to play with Quran!!!

    We are astronished that why this person is not banned in Islamic countries?

    We request All Islamic countries especially Pakistan to ban him and all other such illiterates andtheir LITRATURE ,who say bombing tombs and muslims is Jihad.

    If the pproper actions were taken in time, the bombing in the Holy shrine Of Saint DATA Ganj Bakshs, would not have happened

    May Allah give Pakistani Govt. with the actions to Ban such litrature and execute its preachers (AA MEEN!)

  • Illiterate degree holders are many without having any knowledge of true Islam because they never had reason and arguement. Daawa is every muslim’s duty, by ur standards rest all should keep quiet.There is no place in Islam for grave worshippers who instead of asking from Allah get in queue on every roadside grave and prostate their, like unbelievers and do shirk.These people will never be forgiven by Allah refer Quran. You want to be like these people. Regarding attack every body is condemning this act.

  • Dr.Zakir Naik is a scholar who has not only understanding of islam but have understood other religions also.Islamic Degree is not the necessary for a true muslim .Any body can be true muslim whether having a degree or not.their are so many scholars who had not even gone to school but have contributed .Sheikhul Alam Rehmatullah Talah who explained Quran in Kashmiri had not even gone to school.
    Our Prophet Mohammad (PBUH) was a oomee.
    It is not a government job or the job of any company where the basic qualification is required.Go through the islamic history you can find so many people who preached islam they where having no degrees and diplomas .so many scientists were also not university qualified.
    Applying brain and Allah SWT help is needed to understand the true religion and preaching with latest techniques of art and science.
    Sheikh Noor Ud Din Noorani( Ra) who was also a poet taught quran and modern environment sciences who was also without any degree or diploma.
    Regarding Shirk go through the Quran and see what Allah says .Allah can forgive anything but not shirk as far as my little knowledge about islam is concerned .

  • Dr Naik presents Islam as the only true religion and Quran as the only valid book of Allah. What about all those people who lived before Quran and those who do not know anything about it. If Allah had sent Mohammed and the Quran some 1400 years ago to Arabia and it was important for all the mankind then he should have sent one Mohammed and one Quran to each nation and tribe like the Maories of New Zealand and, Eskimos, Red Indians Mayas and Aztecs of America, Nagas, Mizos, Santhalis and Bheels of India. Was Allah partial only to those who can understand Arabic? What about those who cannot read? Does Allah favours the literate people only? Does Allah understands any other language beside Arabic because the Salat or Namaaz can be said only in Arabic?

  • Dr Naik should not forget that in man’s quest for truth, arguments alone do not count. What may seem to be conclusive to him may not seem decisive to others. No, there is the danger that arguments which one has advanced with great care and cleverness may be counter productive and they may tempt others to in polemics and lead them to seek criticism or counter arguments. Dr Naik knows that he can say whatever he wants to in a non Muslim environment but a non Muslim cannot poit out the inconsistencies, contardictions, anachronism, unwarrented claims of the Quran and Hadith in a Muslim environment. Muslims will rise with violent protests and commit arson. But the wonder is that Islam and other religions have inspired millions of people in history and the world over to live peacefully. Different people have developed different ways of understanding the world around them and figure out for themselves how to understand the mystery of God and spiritual matters and thus organised their lives according to their perceptios. Dr Naik finds faults in all religions, including various Muslim sects. His version of Islam is the only true religion for all mankind. We can learn from one another and enrich our lives by the insights of other religions instead of promoting one as the best.

  • To be a Muslim, for Dr Naik,seems to entail the judgement that being a Muslim is superior to being anything else. To display this superiority has been the task of Dr Naik and his teacher Ahmed Deedat and the likes of them. For them it has meant the conviction that from whom alone salvation can be received is known or present to Muslims as no where else.. This kind of thinking is challenged by increasing awareness of the many impressive ways in which human beings have organized their lives and have sought and found truth, wholeness, or salvation. To more and more people, approaching others with the assumption of the superiority of their own religion seems false to human decency. Is it not better to listen appreciably to what others have learned and experienced than to assume that we already know better? Islam may be a religion of peace but there has never been peace even the community of Islam from its very inception. Three of the Caliphs after Mohammed’s death were killed by Muslims. Imam Hussein, prophet Mohammed’s grandson with members of his family, was slaughtered by Caliph Yezid at Karbala. Dr Naik has praised Yezid for his statemanship, even many Sunni Muslims abhor Yezid but Dr Naik finds virtue in his brutally decimating the family of his own prophet Mohammed. This claim of Islam as the religion of peace and harmony is often exploded by Muslims themselves when they behave with violence and arson when for example a Danish cartoonist portarys Mohammed. Mohammed did not react with violence when insulted. A woman used to throw garbage on Mohammed when he passed her house; one day she did not and on enquiry Mohammed found out that she was sick. He went to see her and showed kindness to her. But the blasphemy laws in Muslim countries demand death for those who insult Mohammed. Even if a Muslims leaves Islam for another religion, he or she should be killed according to the law of apostasy. Muslims can preach their religion in non Muslim countries but a non Muslim cannot preach his religion in a Muslim country for it is against the Muslim law. You only have to read Moudoudi and Qutab who are well respected scholars in the Muslim world and they stress by qouting Quran and Hadith on killing the non Muslims if they do not accept Islam. But then there are Sufi Muslims who practice love and mercy to all. Wahabis, main sect in Saudi Arabia and their followers around the world consider Sufi and Shiah Muslims as infidels. Ahmediyas and Bahai’s are equally condemned. So what peace Dr Naik is talking about, peace towards whom. Fortunately majority of Muslims do not subscribe to such violent views and hopefully Dr Naik and his likes will not influence the majority of Muslims. Banning him from entering UK and Canada will only make him more popular among the fanatics. Let him go where he wants to, in this age of internet and mass communication you cannot stop him from spreading his brand of Islam.

  • It is a blessing from Allah that we have a leader like Zakir Naik. Instead of learning what is true islam and how prophet Sallallahu alaiwasallam want us to lead life, it is a pity that we want to follow traditions brought from other religion.

  • Brothers,I want to ask you one question.From where you got the criteria to be a lecturer ???From Quran or Hadith??

  • Assalamoalaikum!

    May peace be on all of you…

    I just want to mention one thing. A person who supports his each and every answer with valid references from the religious scriptures cannot tell a lie. If a person is giving references from Quran, bible or even vedas or any book, it is very easy to check the authenticity of his statements. you can open the book and check it by yourself.

    Secondly, you donot need to call yourself a lecturer to spread the truth. Quran is for whole of the humanity, anyone can open the quran, read it and understand it and preech its teachings. Islam has no brands. A person can understand only if Allah wills. so just try to understand. dont listen what zakir naik or anyone says. just open the quran and sahih hadith, read and understand it. and it is said in the quran
    “WHEN TRUTH IS HEARD AGAINST FALSEHOOD, FALSEHOOD PERISHES FOR FALSEHOOD BY ITS NATURE BOUND TO PERISH”

  • As salaamu-alaikum WR WB. May the peace and blessing be upon you all in humanity.

    What ever happens (Insha-Allah) the ban with only last another year and a half, before it gets uplifted! But, the reason behind Allah’s wisdom is that people will now read, watch and listen to OUR brother in Islam “DR ZAKIR NAIK” and accept the offer of being a MUSLIM.

    Thank you for taking the time to read this message.

  • Islam is a religion of peace- I understood after hearing the lecture of dr. Zakir Naik as a modern muslim. May allah give the true path(hedayat) to all the mankind specially muslim. May allah give the patience to dr. Zakir naik.

  • dr zakir naik is a scholar islam need people like him. he is not a mullah who dont know anything but about his own sect.certainly mullahs will not like him. his knowledge speaks by itself. he himself is a university of islam. he dont follow abdul wahab and he never said that but he follow Muhammad sal allaho alyh wasallam.

  • Dr. zakir naik is a well resptive person/ He should not be banned. I have heard his speces for 5 years and none of them spread hate massages. In fact I think IF Muslim Movement for the Elimination of Prejudiced Mullahs (MMEPM) think he should be baned then they (MMEPM) should be baned.
