At another place Allah says that if anyone desires any religion except Islam it will not be acceptable and in the hereafter he will be among the losers. Quran is the only book which emphatically says that all the other religions are wrong.
If every religion claims the same power and authority, will it not give birth to agreat anomaly where one faith will be pitted against the other?
I am a student of comparative religion. So religious book says that. So where is thequestion of anomaly. The question is when people say that Islam is intolerant,. I sayyes, Islam is intolerant towards bribery, towards corruption, towards injustice. Peoplesay Muslims are extremists. We say Muslims are extremely merciful, extremelyhonest and extremely kind. Turn the tables and then they will come on defence.
A word about Muslims the world over?
Al Hamdullillah, Today Islam is the fastest growing religion of the world. I have thelatest data and it’s a mathematical reality that Islam figures first followed byChristianity. In America and Europe, it’s Islam that attracts people far and wide.

We have the Deen-e-Haq with us, the problem is we not sure of our Deen.

A person can live on one kidney. If I donate one kidney and the other person survives, both of us are saved. Then the third point is that you cannot donate your organs for thecause of money. If these conditions are fulfilled, then organ transplant can be done.
Who has inspired you the most?
My source of inspiration is Ahmed Deedat. I met him in 1987. After that I, like manythousands of his fans, got greatly inspired by him.
Your memory is absolutely incredible? Do you strive for that or you just readand it gets engraved on your mind?
It’s just the help of Allah. I am nothing. Allah says in Quran, Sura Ankabut (Ch 29, Vs69) that strive in the way of Allah and Allah will look after you. So anyone who doesJihad in the way of Allah, Allah opens his way for him. In my childhood I used tostammer. If someone would ask me my name. I would say. My name is Za... Za...
