in surah ankaboot chapter no. 29 verse no.69 that if you strive in the way of Allah subhanwatala Allah will open up your pathways…, so this is the way we have adopted and we are very successful brother..……"
Now lets see what Al-Muhaddith Muhammad Naasirud-Deen Al-Albaanee said about the means and ways of doing da’wah
quote: Question: Do you hold that the means (wasaa'il) for da’wah (call to Islaam) are tawqeefiyyah (dependent upon revelation) just like the prayer, fasting and all the other acts of worship? Or do you hold that da’wah is mainly an act of Ijtihaadiyyah worship (dependent upon ones own investigation and deduction) based on the understanding of the textual evidences and religious benefits, which are considered and called for by the means, such as having knowledge and commanding the good?
quote: Answer: Yes. I believe that the means (for giving da'wah) vary from time and place. And this is something that no Faqeeh or scholar of the Book and the Sunnah will dispute. The means differ from time and place, however proceeding towards applying these means requires knowledge of what the Prophet, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, was upon from his guidance and Sunnah. The general rule for this is that: It is not permissible to turn away from the means that the Messenger, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, has handed down to us with the excuse that "The times have changed." So if there exists some type of means, by which that which the Prophet, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, was upon can be supported, such as the means we use today – such as tape-recording and book printing and the easy means of distribution – in order to bring the knowledge to distant places, then no one can forsake this. However, we know that many callers to Islaam today have accepted some types of means that the Divine Legislation has not prescribed. Rather, they are the means that the Divine Legislation has ordered us to oppose! I think that the cause for the acceptance of these means on their part is due to (their) ignorance of Islaam. And we don' need to give examples, but instead we say that most of the times t there cannot be found any scholars, knowledgeable of the Qur' and aan Sunnah, in these Islaamic groups and parties that exist today. The majority of the people who run these groups are from the enthusiastic youth who are zealous for Islaam, then from those who do not exert themselves to study Islaam, by way of the Qur' and the Sunnah upon the methodology of the aan Salaf As-Saalih . Talk concerning this topic will only lengthen and prolong. So we will now give an example of a dispute that broke out during the close of one Ramadaan between one state and another, such that some states fasted 29 days, and the other land completed 30 days! So in some of the western lands, such as America, there were some Islaamic Callers (i.e. people of Da'wah) who announced that their method for confirming the crescent at the beginning and end of the month was based on astronomy. Either they were ignorant of the truth or they disregarded it and pretended to be ignorant about it. And as it is said: "The sweeter of the two is (still)
bitter." The Prophet, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, said: "We are an illiterate nation. We do not record nor do we estimate. A month is like this, like this and like this – [or he sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam gestured with his hands three time like this, and this and this, meaning thirty days]." Then he, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, said: "A month is like this, this and this [meaning twenty nine days]." And in some of the authentic narrations, he, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, said: "And if it becomes too cloudy, then complete the month as thirty days." In many of the lands in which the people give rulings according to their own way, some astronomers confirm the crescent for Ramadaan by astronomical estimations and calculations. And the Messenger, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, has nullified this type of means. Even if it is a means based on knowledge, then only a few people in some lands are aware of this knowledge. Whereas the prescribed means that the Messenger, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, has made as a proof for the beginning of the new month or the termination of the current month is the innate natural and human means of physical sighting. And it is not the scientific sighting, which we are not able to share knowledge of to all people. Based on this, it is not permissible to cast off this type of means, which Islaam has brought, by claiming that times have advanced and changed. So it has become clear from by previous explanation that it is not proper today to take a means that the Messenger, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, was able to take (during his time, but which he didn't). The discussion on this topic will prolong severely. Ibn Taimiyyah has a very beneficial section in his book Iqtidaa As-Siraat-il-Mustaqeem Mukhaalafatu Ashaab-il-Jaheem dealing with this matter. I will abridge what I can from the words of Ibn Taimiyyah: The means that are introduced in a time and a place are divided into two categories: 1. A means of which a need for using it existed during the time of Allaah's Messenger, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam, but he did not use it. So introducing it is an innovation. 2. A means of which there did not exist a need to use it during the time of Allaah's Messenger, sallAllaahu 'alayhi wa sallam. He (rahimahullaah) said: "So it should be examined. If the need for introducing this means and using it is to make the Muslims refrain and lessen in their application of the rulings of the Religion, then it is not permissible to use them. And if this is not the case, then it is permissible." And Allaah is the One who grants success. [Al-Asaalah, Issue #18}
After seeing the calamity of this ignorant individual who has been refuted by the mashaykh of Yemen, and those who promote and raise him to a man of knowledge and understanding on there so called salafi websites, then know oh sincere Salafi, do not listen or entertain anyone who has links or articles with such fools on their websites, even if they claim to the da’wah salafiyah. Since Salafiyah is not a mere claim or utterance as Shaykh Fawzan mentions, rather it is the manhaj of the Salaf which is knowledge that is acted upon; quote: Question; Is one who calls himself a "Salafi" to be considered a partisan (hizbi?)
quote: Answer; There is not harm in labelling oneself with Salafiyyah when it is in truth. However, if it is merely a claim then it is not permissible to label oneself with Salafiyyah, whilst one is upon a manhaj other than that of the Salaf. The Ash'aris for example, say "We are Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah" and this is not correct. This is because what they are upon is not the manhaj of Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah. It is likewise for the Mu'tazilah who call themselves "Muwahhideen" (Monotheists). All of them claim to have love for Laylaa Yet Laylaa does not affirm this for any of them Hence, the one who claims that he is upon the madhhab of Ahl us-Sunnah walJamaa'ah [actually] follows the path of Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah and abandons the Opposers. However if he [is one who] wants to unite the lizard and the fisth - as they say - meaning, to unite a creature from the land with a creature from the sea, then this is not possible. Or to unite water and fire in a vessel. In light of this, Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jamaa'ah do not reconcile with the path (madhhab) of those who oppose them such as the Khawarij, the Mu'tazilah, the Hizbiyyeen amongst those who call themselves, the Contemporary Muslims. Such is one who wants to unite between the errors and misguidance of the contemporaries with the manhaj of the Salaf. So "the latter part of this Ummah will not be corrected except by that which corrected its earliest part." The essence of the matter is that it is necessary to weigh matters and to separate them.
Al-Ajwibah al-Mufidah of Jamal bin Farihan al-Harithi The Zen Philosophy the doctor (of everything except Islaam) is on about; quote:
Zen is a form of Mahayana Buddhism which places great importance on momentby-moment awareness and 'seeing deeply into the nature of things' by direct experience. Zen emerged as a distinct school in China and spread to Vietnam, Korea, Japan, and, in modern times, the rest of the world.. …Zen Buddhism is a branch of Mahayana Buddhism, and, as such, its teachings are deeply rooted in those of the Buddha. …The Zen schools, like other Buddhist sects, teach the fundamental elements of Buddhist philosophy, including the Four Noble Truths. …Samantabhadra Bodhisattva, and Amitabha Buddha are venerated in Zen temples along with Œakyamuni Buddha. …Zen sitting meditation, the core of zen practice, is called zazen. During zazen, practitioners usually assume a sitting position such as the lotus, half-lotus, Burmese, or seiza postures. Awareness is directed towards one's posture and breathing. Often, a square or round cushion (zafu) placed on a padded mat (zabuton) is used to sit on; in some cases, a chair may be used. In Rinzai Zen, practitioners typically sit facing the center of the room; while Soto practitioners traditionally sit facing a wall. Wikipedia "..this is the ZEN PHILOSOPHY" of the doctor So the doctor, “Allaamatul Muslimeen” Zakir Naik (as he was introduced by his followers) mocks the Salafis; quote: SALAFI, how many salafees are there? QUTUBI (SALAFEES), SUROOREE (SALAFEES), MADHKHALEE (SALAFEES) (referring to Shaykh Rabee), I can take names. And with all of them it is Allah's fadl that I have met them. Those who are their heads(Sardar log), with all of them I have met; I go to London, America I travel, I go to Saudi Arabia, I go to Gulf Country, how many groups and parties are there in SALAFEES?
Well Dr Naik, the answer is fairly obvious to any Salafi, even the ones who have come to the Salafi da'wah today ......ONE! In response to this mans ignorant comments then the words of Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan will suffice; quote: Question: Is Salafiyyah a group from amongst the (various) groups? And is the ascription to it blameworthy?
Salafiyyah: It is the saved sect, and they are Ahlus-Sunnah wal-Jamaa’ah, it is not a sect from amongst the party spirited groups that are labeled with partisanship; it is a Jamaa’ah upon the Sunnah and the Deen. He (the Prophet) sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “There will not cease to be a group of my nation manifest upon the truth, not being harmed by those who abandon them, nor by those who appose them.” Reported by Muslim (no.1920) He (the Prophet) sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam said: “This Ummah will split into seventy three sects all of them in the fire except one.” They (the Companions) asked: “What is it (the saved sect) O Messenger of Allaah?” He (the Prophet sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said: ”Those that are upon what I and my Companions are upon today.” Reported by at-Tirmidhee (no.2641) So Salafiyyah is a group upon the methodology of the Salaf, upon that which the Messenger sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam and his Companions were upon, that is not a sect from the party spirited sects of today. Indeed it (as-Salaffiyah) is an ancient Jamaa’ah traced back to the time of the Messenger sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam a continually inherited legacy, remaining manifest upon the truth up until the establishment of the Hour as he sallAllaahu ‘alayhi wa sallam informed.

The Calamity Of Zakir Naik Upon The Ummah
Below is the letter i had send to Shaykh Yahya al Hajooree hafidhahullah, as instructed by Shaykh Abu Amr AbdulKareem al Hajooree hafidhahullah when he was in bombay,India (December 2005). Insha'Allaah the reply of Shaykh Yahya al Hajooree hafidhahullah will be posted here. bismillah, assalaamu alaykum warahmatullahi wabarakatahu, alhamdulillah, Indeed all Praise is to Allaah subhan watala alone Who Guided us and protected us from this fitnah that has appeared in this land(india) , the individual -zakir naik , a medical doctor who took to 'dawah' using bible, books of hindus and other mushrikeen, science, philosophy and logic which he use to prove abt islaam, quraan or sunnaah, he apparently started this misadventure around 1993 after being inspired by his spiritual father ahmed deedat ( a dawoodi bohra, who doesnt hide his open support and praise for the rafidee iraan and ayatushaitaan there). In this land plunged in shirk, bida, jahl and hizbiyyah, the youth in particular got misguided by the speech, pomp and extravagant activities of this medical doctor named zakir naik, to mention a few words abt the religious background of this person (zakir naik), as he himself declares -he is 'self-learn', self-appointed 'da'ee', like his spiritual father ahmed deedat , dr.zakir naik too have a shia rafidee connection, during the intial years of formation of his organisation- IRF(islamic research foundation) there were shia rafidees who used to be with IRF, later they formed a shia rafidee dawah center in the opposite lane ahead of IRF under the name WIN( world islamic network) of which dr.zakir naik's sisters husband ( a rafidee) was one of heads. so for this reason dr.zakir naik never spoke or allowed anyone to speak or expose the reality of shiaism in the IRF and it was a taboo subject especially during the initial years. Due to this stand on
rafidees adopted by ahmad deedat and zakir naik the youth who got inspired and learned from IRF and zakir always thought shiaism as merely a difference of opinion amongst muslims and thereby causing further calamities in their aqeedah manhaj and dawah. may Allaah forgive us, aameen. Due to his dawah being centered around bible, other books of mushrikeen found in this land, we used to stock up these books, learn them, memorise them religiously as this was the basis of our 'dawah', so where the case of books on philosophy , logic and science so much so that we all thought that if anyone want to call people to islaam it is obligatory upon him to learn and memorise the verses found in the books of mushrikeen, this was infact explicitly said by dr.zakir naik in his many speeches. Another point which no one can deny which attracted us, the youth towards this man was the extravagant style of his programmes, always conducted in the top plush auditoriums, his organisation which is situated in notorious locality ( infested with shites, ismaelis, grave worshippers , drugs etc) looks like a multi national company office. His squandering of wealth requires volumes to describe but i deem it not necessary because the harm he had made to the aqeedah and manhaj of the muslims is far greater and grave. Zakir Naik appears as chief guest in all hizbee conferences- graveworshipping sunnis of kerala, jamat e islami(maududi), Kerala nadvatul mujahideen, jamiat ahle hadees etc in India and abroad. After reading translated books of Salafi Ulema, listening to tapes, articles on internet, duroos in paltalk we realised the danger of the dawah this person, dr.zakir naik, is persuing there by we left him and his dawah and started showing how this person contradict the aqeedah and manhaj of ahlusunnah to our friends and brothers who were still stuck in there - confused mainly because there were organisations and centers who were known as 'salafis' like AHYA, Kerala Nadvatul Mujahideen ( their centers in middle east known as Islaahi center), jamiat ahle hadees were in forefront in promoting this person, one reason for that was dr.zakir naik funds many organisations and many organisations could pull donors and crowd if dr.zakir naik was with them. Due to the material influence of zakir naik and blind following of many people and others who are decieved by the greatness of the influence upon masses by this person conveying the reality of this person and his dawaah to the ulema seemed farfetched, also whenever any attempt of exposing the reality of the statements of zakir naik inthe light of Aqeedah and Manhaj of salaf was done either the muqallideen of dr.zakir naik will attack the salafis or the hizbees like the jamiat will come in open to protect and defend dr.zakir naik so much so that an atmosphere of terror is created and hatered is implanted in the hearts against those who expose naik. one point which further confusing people here is- naik has given more speeches in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia than in India or anywhere else, which is another proof muqallids of naiks quote to prove his credential and this confuse the youth and common masses . all the below points (and there are more, but i could not find the tapes of him) which i found it necessary to know the stand of Ahlu sunnah on this, are widely used by all those influenced by dr.naik ( dr.zakir naik's students, and their students conducts duroos with question and answer session spreading these and other points & now there is a satellite television channel owned by dr.zakir naik which is spreading the dawah of zakir naik through out the world), so we used to use all of them with out knowing the truth in these statements, these points are from the video tapes of zakir naik,and the tapes are extensively edited professionally(i have witnessed this myself) in his own studio and these points he is repeating since a decade or more through out the world, those who used to work with zakir naik and who were close to him says that zakir naik deny many of the attributes of Allaah like His Hands, His Face etc, Kindly enlighten us about these points , their reality, and wht should be the stand of Ahlu Sunnah on these statements (& this person) and advice to our brothers and sisters who are still confused, so kindly enlighten us with your valuable answer Shaykhana, barakAllaahu fee kum, may peace and prayers be upon the prophet his family and companions, Salaamun alaykum warahmatullah, the one who loves you for sake of Allaah, abu hurairah shabeer ibn hamza Zakir Naik says its is permissible to Call Allah with any name that is
beautiful. 1." In Islaam there is nothing like tin Allah, Allah is Pure He is Unique You can Call Him by any name but it should be a beautiful name" ( Is Quraan Word of God, from the CD-"Presenting Islaam and Clarifying Misconceptions –Lecture series by Dr.Zaakir Naik, Developed by AHYA Multi-Media- 12 Enlightening Sessions)
Zaakir Naik says God is Natural & says he can list a 1000 things which Allah cannot do. 2. " I would like to know which person out here who believes in a god says god is not supernatural,… everyone…everyone who believes in god they believe that god is supernatural…supernatural means…. There is nature and then there is god, infact according to the quraan god is not supernatural ..god is not supernatural.. according to the concept of Allah subhanwatala in the quraan god created nature… it will never be that nature said this and god is saying the opposite …got created the nature..god created the fitrah the innate nature in the human being …one of the attribute of Allah subhanwatala given in quraan is Faatir which is the name of 36th surah of the quraan ..Faatir has been derived from the word fitrah meaning innate nature, Faatir means the creator , the origninator of creation…the creator of the primedial matter to which more creation is added by god almighty therefore when we break our fast in ramadhan we say iftaar… iftaar means break… same way the word Faatir means Creator… it means….Shaper, Former as well as Splitter…quraan tells the people that don't you see the ..signs of Allah subahnwatala and don't you ponder on them …look at the sun look at the moon they are following the laws of nature…they will never change the course …they are all natural ….same way Allah subhanwatala is too natural , its mention in quraan in surah ahzaab in chapter no. 33 verse no.62 it says walam tajid …wa lam tajid that the nature…wala tajid bi sunnatillah tabdeela ..that you will never find a change in the nature of Allah subhanwatala…. in surah ahzab chapter no. 33 verse no.62 ..a similar message is repeated in the quraan ….saying that established the handiwork of Allah subhantala never will you find a change in the work of Allah subhanwatala this is a standard religion but most of them will not understand mentioned in surah rum chapter no.30 verse no.30… today science tells us ..the quantum and modern science they tell us ..that without an observer u don't have anything …the universe without the observer is useless ….the scientist pose the question who was the first observer …another attribute of Allah subhanwatala is ash Shaheed ..the Witness.. quraan says Allah was the person who first witnessed.. so god is not supernatural god is natural…. Regarding the second part of the question…that god can do everything? …Normally I pose this question to most of the people who believe in God just so that they have better understanding of Allah subhanwatala …I ask them the question.. that can god create anything and everything …most of them will say Yes,… can god destroy anything and everything…all will say Yes …my third question is ..can god create a thing which he cannot destroy… and they are trapped…if they say yes .. that god can create a thing which he cannot destroy they are going against the second statement that god can destroy everything ..if they say no god cannot create a thing which he cannot destroy that means
they are going against first statement that god can create everything… again they are not using logic… they are trapped …same way god cannot create a tall short man ..yes he can make a tall man short but no longer he remains tall….he can make a tall man short……no longer remains tall..he make a short man tall ..no longer that man remains short….but you cant have a tall short man ..you cannot ….(word unclear)…who is ..neither tall neither short ..but god can't make a man who is tall and short at the same time similarly god almighty ..Allah subhantala cannot make a fat thin man …there are a thousand things I can list which god almighty can't do ….god cannot tell a lie… the moment he tells a lie.. he ceases to be god …god cannot be unjust…the moment he is unjust he ceases to be god…god cannot be cruel ..god cannot forget …..you can list a thousand things ..god almighty cannot throw me out of his domain….the full world the full universe belong to him…he can kill me, he can obliterate me, he can make me vanish ..but he cannot throw me out of his domain …to him belongs everything ..where will he throw me…he can kill me ,…the can obliterate me..he can make me vanish…but he cant throw me out of his domain…nowhere does the quraan say god can do everything ..infact quraan says…innAllaha ala kulli shai in Qadeer… that verily Allah has Power over all things..quraan doesn't say God can do everything…quraan says god has power over all things…several places….surah baqrah chapter no.2 verse no.106 surah baqrah chap 2 verse 108.. surah imran …aali imran chapter no. 3 verse 29 in surah nahl chapter no.16 verse no. 77 in surah faatir chapter 35 verse no.1 …several places the quraan says the quraan says innaAllaha ala kulli shaiin Qadeer..verily Allah has power over all things…and there is a world of a difference between Allah can do everything and Allah has power over everything infact Quraan says in Surah Buruj chapter no.85 verse no. 15, and 16 it says that Allah is the doer of all He intends….see whatever He intends He can do…but God only does godly things ..he does not do ungodly things……. ( Is Quraan Word of God, from the CD-"Presenting Islaam and Clarifying Misconceptions –Lecture series by Dr.Zaakir Naik, Developed by AHYA Multi-Media- 12 Enlightening Sessions)
Zaakir Naik says the word ' sadr' mentioned in Quraan means center. 3. "…..She says that Allah says in certain parts of the Quraan…. I do agree with here… Allah seals the heart….Mohar lagaya on the heart… and …so that people who wont come close to the truth…they have been sealed…she ask the question today science is advanced and we know that brain is the main organ requires for thinking not the heart..previously people thought it was the heart…so isn't there a error in the quraan ….if you realize in the beginning of my talk I also quoted a verse of the quraan ..the third quotation was from surah TaHa chapter no.20 verse no. 25-28 which says Rabbishrohali sadri…sadri…. O My Lord increase my breast for me Rabbishrohali sadri wa yassirli amri wahlal ughdata milisaanee yaf kahu qawli increase my breast for me and make my task easy for me and release the impediment from my speech so that they will understand and here the word again sadr ..heart… so why should Allah increase my heart the Arabic word sadr has got two meaning one is heart and the other is center… if you go to Karachi…you will find sadr so and so sadr so and so.. center so and so so sadr in Arabic besides meaning heart also means Center.. so therefore quraan says… that we have sealed your center… brain ..i ask
Allah subhanwatala Rabbi shrohali sadri O my Lord increase my center… intellect….and remove the impediment between me and audience….hope that answers the questions"…( Is Quraan Word of God, from the CD-"Presenting Islaam and Clarifying Misconceptions –Lecture series by Dr.Zaakir Naik, Developed by AHYA Multi-Media- 12 Enlightening Sessions) Zakir Naik calls Zoarashtrianism a prophetic religion and calls the founder of Majoosi religion as ' prophet' . 4."Zorashtrianism is a non semetic , Aryan, non vedic religion, which is not associated with Hinduism and it's a Prophetic religion, Zorashtrianism is also called as Parsism and it was founded by Prophet Zorashter….."(Concept of God in Major Religions- from the CD-"Presenting Islaam and Clarifying Misconceptions –Lecture series by Dr.Zaakir Naik, Developed by AHYA Multi-Media- 12 Enlightening Sessions) Zakir Naik says Sikhism (an off-shoot of hinduism) strictly believes in monotheism. 5.

Brother has very good question …and he has asked ..thatsince he is in non muslim school where the majority of his classmates are non muslims how should I invite them towards islaam and how will b doing.. there are various ways and styles of doing dawah whichever is effective u use it… but the one that we had chosen at the Islaamic Research Foundation is that instead of speaking a thousand good points about islaam normally people do is….islaam has so and so good points on alcohol etc 1 2 3 4 ………instead of speaking a 1000 good points about islaam what we have a way that first we ask the non-muslims that what do u see is wrong in islaam , which are the negative points of islaam , because even if u speak a 1000 good points abt islaam and if that non muslim has 2 negative point about islaam he will never agree with you, he will agree those 1000 points are good but still he will say..these muslims they marry more than one wife ..these muslims they are circumcised …what we do is that first we pose them the question – what do you feel wrong with islaam…which are the things that you don't agree with whatever little knowledge of islaam …and believe me we have done a survery…and we have come to know….that the average non muslim ..the 90% of non muslim they don't have more than 15 to 20 questions about islaam they don't have more than 15-20 questions against islaam so when we train a daee we first equip him with these answers of these 15-20 questions…we have a common questions which u r already aware of ……..(mentions the questions)…….and believe me if you can master these 15-20 questions you can win over atleast 90% of non-muslims and then after you have removed the misconception then even if you speak 10 good points about islaam he will accept it … this is the ZEN PHILOSOPHY..if the cup is filled ….and if you pour more into it ..it will overflow …first empty the cup then fill whatever u pour into it…….so first what we do is… we encourage the youngsters to learn the answers to these 15-20 questions and then we ask them to go to the field and later on then we train them with the verses of bible of the Vedas of the gita the holy quraan …and simultaneously his knowledge keeps on increasing …so first we equip him with the answers which are normally posed by non muslims because if he cannot answer these questions…they will start poking fun at you…so what we have to do is that first what we have to do is to equip ourself and …make us well versed with these answers …….(continues after asking to ask questions and says)…….but you should start doing dawah immediately..you should not wait and say that until I acquire the knowledge like Shaikh Deedat..or like someone else then I will start doing dawah…we should start immediately…to make a beginning and we know that….Allah subhanwatala says in the holy quraan in surah ankaboot chapter no. 29 verse no.69 that if you strive in the way of Allah subhanwatala Allah will open up your pathways…, so this is the way we have adopted and we are very successful brother..……" (Concept of God in Major relgions, Question and Answer session - from the CD-"Presenting Islaam and Clarifying Misconceptions –Lecture series by Dr.Zaakir Naik, Developed by AHYA Multi-Media- 12 Enlightening Sessions)

The context of this phrase is the following verse from Surah Nisa of the Glorious Qur'an: "Marry women of your choice, two, or three, or four; but if ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly (with them), then only one." [Al-Qur'an 4:3] Before the Qur'an was revealed, there was no upper limit for polygyny and many men had scores of wives, some even hundreds. Islam put an upper limit
of four wives. Islam gives a man permission to marry two, three or four women, only on the condition that he deals justly with them. In the same chapter i.e. Surah Nisa verse 129 says: "Ye are never able to be fair and just as between women...." [Al-Qur'an 4:129] Therefore polygyny is not a rule but an exception. Many people are under the misconception that it is compulsory for a Muslim man to have more than one wife. Broadly, Islam has five categories of Do's and Don'ts: (i) 'Fard' i.e. compulsory or obligatory (ii) 'Mustahab' i.e. recommended or encouraged (iii) 'Mubah' i.e. permissible or allowed (iv) 'Makruh' i.e. not recommended or discouraged (v) 'Haraam' i.e. prohibited or forbidden Polygyny falls in the middle category of things that are permissible. It cannot be said that a Muslim who has two, three or four wives is a better Muslim as compared to a Muslim who has only one wife. 4. Average life span of females is more than that of males By nature males and females are born in approximately the same ratio. A female child has more immunity than a male child. A female child can fight the germs and diseases better than the male child. For this reason, during the pediatric age itself there are more deaths among males as compared to the females. During wars, there are more men killed as compared to women. More men die due to accidents and diseases than women. The average life span of females is more than that of males, and at any given time one finds more widows in the world than widowers. 5. India has more male population than female due to female foeticide and infanticide India is one of the few countries, along with the other neighbouring countries, inwhich the female population is less than the male population. The reason lies in the high rate of female infanticide in India, and the fact that more than one million female foetuses are aborted every year in this country, after they are identified as females. If this evil practice is stopped, then India too will have more females as compared to males. 6. World female population is more than male population In the USA, women outnumber men by 7.8 million. New York alone has one million more females as compared to the number of males, and of the male population of New York one-third are gays i.e sodomites. The U.S.A as a whole has more than twenty-five million gays. This means that these people do not wish to marry women. Great Britain has four million more females as compared to males. Germany has five million more females as compared to males. Russia has nine million more females than males. God alone knows how many million more females there are in the whole world as compared to males. 7. Restricting each and every man to have only one wife is not practical Even if every man got married to one woman, there would still be more than thirty million females in U.S.A who would not be able to get husbands (considering that America has twenty five million gays). There would be more than four million females in Great Britain, 5 million females inGermany and nine million females in Russia alone who would not be able to find a husband. Suppose my sister happens to be one of the unmarried women living in USA, or suppose your sister happens to be one of the unmarried women in USA. The only two options remaining for her are that she either marries a man who already has a wife or becomes 'public property'. There is no other option. All those who are modest will opt for the first. Most women would nto like to share their husband with other women. But in Islam when the situation deems it really neccessary Muslim women in due faith
could bear a small personal loss to prevent a greater loss of letting other Muslim sisters becoming 'public properties'. 8. Marring a married man preferable to becoming 'public property' In Western society, it is common for a man to have mistresses and/or multiple extra-marital affairs, in which case, the woman leads a disgraceful, unprotected life. The same society, however, cannot accept a man having more than one wife, in which women retain their honourable, dignified position in society and lead a protected life. Thus the only two options before a woman who cannot find a husband is to marry a married man or to become 'public property'. Islam prefers giving women the honourable position by permitting the first option and disallowing the second. There are several other reasons, why Islam has permitted limited polygyny, but it is mainly to protect the modesty of women.

"…there are some people who say….see… God Almighty can be called by various names… I do agree with them…the quraan says the same quran says in surah isra , chapter no.17. verse no.110 it says…ulidullah…….say call upon him by Allah or call upon him by Rahmaan…by whichever name u call upon him …to Him belongs the most beautiful names…, so the holy quraan says you can call upon Allah by any name but it should be a beautiful name….it should not conjure up a mental picture…and the holy quraan gives no less than 99 different attributes to Allah subhanwatala..99 different attributes to Allah
subhanwatala….Rahmaan , Raheem, Jabbar, Al Kareem, Al Quddus, Khalique, several ..merciful…most gracious ..the Creator…no less than 99 different attributes….you can call Allah subhanwatala by any name..Allah is Rahmaan, Allah is Raheem, Allah is Khalique, these are the attributes of Allah subhanwatala…but if you single out attribute..and you say this is Allah subhanwatala..we have got no objection…but if you say…but if you single out an attribute and give each attribute a different definition , give each attribute a different form then we take strong exception to that..let me give you an EXAMPLE…suppose someone describes me…that dr.zakir naik ..he is the president of the islaamic research foundation, he is the chairman of the IRF educational trust, he is the president of the Islamic dimensions, he is the husband of mrs.farhat zakir naik, he is the father of farik zakir naik, all these are different attributes…or different types of definition of dr.zakir naik..so if you say he is the president of Islamic research foundation..its a correct definition…dr.zakir naik is the chairman of IRF educational trust it's a correct definition…but if you pick up each definition …each attribute and give it a different form ….for example…dr.zakir naik…his height is about 5 feet 11 inches…my height is 5 feet 11 inches…I am wheatish in complexion…I wear spectacles…I am thin…but now you tell me that the president …of Islamic research foundation is zakir naik who is 4 ½ feet…the attribute is correct…dr.zakir naik is the president of Islamic research foundation…but the moment u give it a different form…instead of 5 feet 11 inches…you say that he is 4 ½ feet ..then dr.zakir naik is the president of Islamic Research Foundation…but he is not 4 1/2 feet …if you say dr.zakir naik is the husband of mrs. Farhat zakir naik….and he is a fat person…he does not wear spects.., dr.zakir naik is the husband of mrs. Farhat naik but he is not fat…so you can give attribute to Allah subhanwatala to Almighty God …but don't give a different form…if you say dr.zakir naik is only the president of Islamic research foundation…and nothing else…then the definition is wrong…because while am the president of Islamic research foundation …am also the husband of my wife mrs.farhat zakir naik am also the father of my son farik zakir naik.. so you can't single out one attribute and say…this attribute is alone God Almighty…all put together is dr.zakir naik…SIMILARLY when you are describing Allah subhanwatala you can very well say He is Rab, He is Rahmaan, He is Raheem … but if you say that Rab is a different Allah…, and Rahmaan is a different Allah subhanwatala, and Khalique is a different Allah then that is not the concept of Allah subhanwatala in Islaam.. all put together itself is Allah subhanwatala ..this is what major religions make mistake ..they pick up one attribute and they call him a different god , they pick up another attribute and give it a different form…and call it a another god …in islaam all these attributes put together is Allah subhanwatala…you cannot single out one attribute and say ..this alone is Allah subhanwatala…" .( Salaah- The programming towards righteousness- ---"Presenting Islaam and Clarifying Misconceptions –Lecture series by Dr.Zaakir Naik, Developed by AHYA Multi-Media- 12 Enlightening Sessions) Zakir Naik says that if god can become man and then again become god even he and all can become god. 33.

(Terrorism & Jihaad- an islaamic perspective- VCD released by Peace Center) Dr.Zakir Naik says Quran is prepared, and compares Qura' to an instruction manual. 51. The Creator prepares the instruction manual. Allah (SWT) has endowed us humans with reason and intelligence. We invent and manufacture appliances for specific purposes. Tape recorders for instance are manufactured in large numbers. It has never
been suggested that in order to understand what is good for the tape recorder the manufacture should become a tape recorder himself. One simply assumes that the manufacturer will publish an instruction manual, since he has complete knowledge of his product. In short the instruction manual gives the dos and don'ts for the machine. If you think of the human being as a machine, it is indeed a complex creation of Allah (SWT). Our Lord and Creator Allah (SWT) need not come in the form of a human being to know what is good or bad for the human being. He only has to reveal the instruction manual to mankind. The Holy Qur'an is the instruction manual for human beings. ( from dr.zakir naik's book -Concept of God in Major Religions, p. 20) Dr.Zakir Naik says the name Ahle Hadeeth is not correct and coins and new name Ahle Saheeh Hadees and says that should be the correct name if at all a name is to be used. From the Jamiat Ahle hadees conference in Mumbai , India. 52. Ahle Hadees means, to do amal(action) based on hadeeth, which includes Quran aswell, hadees, I say if I have to say then, when I did question-answer, in our school admission, when I was doing question-answer, one Ahle Hadees came in front of me. Ahle Hadees! What is the meaning of Ahle Hadees? To implement based on hadees, I questioned him....that the hanafi people when the offer namaz(salah), where do they tie hands? He replied, below the navel. I said, this what they tie below the navel, there's a hadees in Abu Dawood, then do you tie hand below the navel. He replied No. I said why? He said, this hadeeth is Da'eef. Ok.That is Da'eef hadees. That's why I say, if it has to be said, then I say (with regards to ) myself that I am AHLE SAHEEH HADEES. Dr.Naik Attacks and Makes Mockery of Salafis by claiming sectarianism amongst salafis. From the Jamiat Ahle hadees conference in Mumbai , India. 53. SALAFI, how many salafees are there? QUTUBI , SUROOREE , MADHKHALEE, I can take names. And with all of them it is Allah's fadl that I have met them. Those who are their heads(Sardar log), with all of them I have met; I go to London, America I travel, I go to Saudi Arabia, I go to Gulf Country, how many groups and parties are there in SALAFEES? Claims to have discussion with Shaykh Abdul Azeez Ibn Baaz rahimahullah , apparently on the topic of calling oneself salafi. From the tapes of Jamiat Ahle hadees conference in Mumbai , India. 54. Once, in Riyadh, I went to meet Shaikh ibn Baaz(rahimahullah) when he was alive, I had gone to meet him. I went without appointment, his seceratery asked me, who are you? I said, I am a muslim. Which muslim are you? Which muslim are you? I said, Muslim.What is your Aqueedah? I said, Allah and Messenger.You question me , I will answer you. If you want to question, then do it with me. He wished that I should say...In Saudi Arabia, there are no Ahle Hadees, in Saudi Arabia there are salafi. Few people know Ahle Hadees. There if you say Ahle Hadees, they wont recognize you. In Saudi Arabia there are salafi.
Because I did not say that I am a salafi, he did not permit me to meet him. It is Allah's fadl that after few days, those whom I knew I went with them and it is Allah's fadl that more than an hour I had discussion with him , with Shaikh Ibn Baaz (rahimahullah). And this answer that I am giving, it is Allah's fadl alhamdulillah, there has been my discussion in this regard with enough ULAMAA OF MADEENAH UNIVERSITY, (about) this viewpoint that I have. This viewpoint(perspective) which I wish to put forward in front of you. But since the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) has not said, that you should call yourself Salafi, that's why I... Allah and His Prophet...It is a different thing that it is Shaikh Bin Baz's fatwa , he wishes and I had a discussion with him. He says that one should call himself Salafi, that is his OPINION, I respect him, I respect him a lot, I follow most of his fatwas, but because I am a muslim, it is not FARD (obligatory) upon me to believe(follow) all the statements of Shaikh Bin Baaz. Dr.Zakir Naik Congratulates Atheist because Dr.Naik says atheists already believe in the first part of shahadah, i.e- Laa ilaaha PROVING THE EXISTENCE OF ALLAH (SWT) TO AN ATHEIST by Dr. Zakir Naik 55. "CONGRATULATING AN ATHEIST. Normally, when I meet an atheist, the first thing I like to do is to congratulate him and say, " My special congratulations to you", because most of the people who believe in God are doing blind belief he is a Christian, because his father is a Christian; he is a Hindu, because his father is a Hindu; the majority of the people in the world are blindly following the religion of their fathers. An atheist, on the other hand, even though he may belong to a religious family, uses his intellect to deny the existence of God; what ever concept or qualities of God he may have learnt in his religion may not seem to be logical to him. My Muslim brothers may question me, "Zakir, why are you congratulating an atheist?" The reason that I am congratulating an atheist is because he agrees with the first part of the Shahada i.e. the Islamic Creed, 'La ilaaha' - meaning 'there is no God'. So half my job is already done; now the only part left is 'il lallah' i.e. 'BUT ALLAH' which I shall do Insha Allah. With others (who are not atheists) I have to first remove from their minds the wrong concept of God they may have and then put the correct concept of one true God." (From Dr.Zakir Naik's Dawah Training Course material, under sectionDawah to Atheist in his website ) 56. Zakir Naik says Avtaar is Messenger and says ' kalki avtar' is Muhammed salAllahu alaihiwasallam. "….as far as the question earlier is concerned that…what is the concept of avatar and who is kalki avtar ? avtar in Sanskrit comes from the 'av' and 'thra' means coming down and the common meaning is of most of the common hindus is almighty god coming in this world in bodily form, but there are some scholars who say that Sanskrit word avatar cannot be a posses of god it can be that god almighty has send someone …like..a rishi etc.. and this is the similar concept in the quraan..that almighty god chooses man amongst men and with communicates with them on a higher level…whom we call as messengers…so
islaam believes in concept of messengers….and Allah says in quraan surah Fathir chapter 35, verse no.24…that Allah says …wa immin…….., there is not a nation or tribe in which we have not send a warner, Allah says in surah rad chapter no.13 verse no. 7.. wali kulli …..and in every age have we send a messenger, so if you read the Veda the vedas also talk about many learned men, many rishi, one of them is Kalki avatar, its mentioned in bhagwata purana , kand 12 , adhyah 2, shlokhas 18 -20 , that he will be born in the house of vishunu yaash , the chief of the city of sambala, his name will be kalki and god will incarnate…it further says he will be given 8 supernatural qualities he will ride a white horse with a sword in his right hand…and he will destroy the miscreant, its further mentioned in bhagwat purana.. kand 1, adhyay 3 , shlokha 25 that in kalyugh when kings will be like robber….when kings will be like robbers….in the house of Vishnu yash kalki will be born, its also mentioned in kalki purana, chapter no. 2, verse no.4…his father's name is Vishnu yash, its mentioned verse no. 5, chapter no.2 of kalki avtar that he will have 4 companions to help him in kalki puraa chapter no. 2 verse no.7 , he will be helped by devtas.. the angels in the battle field, kalki purana chapter no.2 verse no.11, he will be born in the house of Vishnu yash in the womb of sumati….kalki purana chapter no. 2, verse no.15.. he will b born on 12th month of madhav….in brief …you can give a talk on kalki avatar….in brief it says his fathers name will be Vishnu yash…that is the worshipper of god..the name of mohammed salAllahualaihiwasallam was Abdullah which means worshipper of god…his mothers name that means serenity means peaceful the mother's name of mohammed salAllahu alaihiwasallam was amina which also means serenity and peaceful…he will be born in the village of sambala….sambala means the place of serenity…and makkah is also called darul alam ..darul aman.. a place of peace and serenity…it says he will be born in the house of the village of sambala… we know mohammed salAllahu alaihiwasallam was born in the house of chief of makkah. He wil be born on the 12th month of madhav…we know mohammed salAllahu alaihiwasallam was born on the 12th of rabbiul awwal….it says he will be the anthim rishi…he wil be the last rishi …we know mohammed salAllahu alaihiwasallam mention in qurann in surah ahzab chapter no. 32 verse no. 40 ….maa kaana….. ,prophet mohammed peace be upon him was the seal of the prophet,…the akhri messenger….it further says he will migrate..he will get a revelation , this person in a cave and migrate and northwards and come back ..we know mohammed salAllahu alaihiwasallam got the first revelation in jabl nur…in gare hirah…the mountain of light. And he migrated to madinah northwards and came back….it says he will be given 8 supernatural qualities.. and the eight mentioned here is widom, self control, revealed knowledge, respected lineage, valour, strength, utmost charity and gratefulness …and all of these 8 are found in prophet mohammed salAllahu alaihiwasallam….it further says that he will guide the whole of humanity…..which is also mentioned in quraan in surah saba chapter no. 34 verse no.20 ..he was the messenger for whole of mankind..it futhter says he wil be given the white horse and we know mohammed salAllahu alaihiwasallam was given the buraq the white hourse …he will carry the sword in right hand,, mohammed salallahu alaihiwasallam took part in battles all of them or most of them in self defense…and even carried sword in right hand ..it says he will be helped by four companions….talking about the four khulfa rashideen…hazrat abu bakr, hazrat umar, hazrat usman, hazrat ali..it says that he will be helped by devtas and we know mohammed salAllahu
alaihiwasallam was helped by angels in the battle of badr in surah aali imran chapter no.3 verse 123-125 and surah anfal chapter no.8 , verse no. 8 and 9 , so all these prophesies point out to the last and final messenger prophet mohammed peace be upon him. ( Concept of God in Hinduism and islam in light of sacred scriptures) 57. Zakir Naik Compares Quranic Ayats to shlokhas and makes both a criteria to test the "candidates' almighty god. for "… lets try and understand the concept of God in islaam.. the best reply anyone can give you from the scriptures is quote to you surah ikhlas..chapter no. 112 verse on.1-4 which says: qul huwa….Say He is Allah one and only…………………(quotes the Arabic and translation)…..this is the four line definition of Allah subhanwatala of Almighty god given in the Quran if any person says so and so candidate is god…if that candidate fits in this fourline definition we muslims have got no objection in accepting that candidate as god…the first is : Qul huwa:… say He is One and only, ekam evidityam- god is only one without a second-chandogya Upanishad chapter no.6 , section no.2, verse no.1. the second is :Allahu Sammad=Allah the Absolute and Eternal, same as bhagwat gita chapter no.10, verse no.3, they know me as the unborn , not begotten,without a beginning, supreme lord of the worlds, the third test is : lam yalid walam yoolad: He begets not nor is he begotten, same as swetaswatar Upanishad chapter 6, verse n.9, nachasya Kasich ………., of Him there are no parents no lords , almighty god has got no mother, he has got no father he has got no superior, and the fourth test: walam yaqullahu….., there is nothing like Him, swethaswatra Upanishad chapter 4, verse no.19-yajur ved chapter no.32 verse no.3- natasyapratima asti- of that god there is no pratima, there is no likeness, there is no image, the is no picture, there is no statue. If any person say so and so candidates is god if that candidate fits in this four line definition which we discussed of the quraan and the hindu sacred scripture I have got no objection in accepting that candidate as god" ( Concept of God in Hinduism and islam in light of sacred scriptures) 58. Zakir naik Declares Unconditional love for kaafir sri sri ravishankar. "…islaam the greeting is peace…islam comes from root word sallam which means peace , it's the duty of every muslim and every human being that he should spread peace, if he does not spread peace he is not a muslim , sri sri ravishankar rightly said – that sabse prem karo, I also Love sri sri ravishankar- I Love him…for the things he has said which I agree…… (s s ravishankar intrepts saying- you have no choice but love me) …that's right , even if I had a choice I would yet love you…"( Concept of God in Hinduism and islam in light of sacred scriptures) 59. zakir naik says Hinduism believes in One God. "…sri sri ravishankar writes in first section..faith in one god, on page no.2, Hinduism is perceived to be a religion of many gods, but contrary to this perception it believes in one god, I agree with him 100% that's what I present in my talk" ( Concept of God in Hinduism and islam in light of sacred scriptures) 60. Zakir naik says the prophesies in hindu books is about the Muhammed salAllahu alaihiwasallam.
"…the question posed by the sister is ..is prophet mohammed peace be upon him prophesised in the sacred scriptures of Hinduism… I would like to again take help of this book..but ..please…. sri sri ravishankar writes on 26th page of this book- in the heading prophet muhammed salAllahu alaihiwasallam…. Prophet mohammed prophesised in vedic scriptures… and he gives reference bhavishya purana parv 3 kand 3 adiyata 3 shlokas 5-6…. Gurujeee…. Swamiji….. this reference is the only reference you give in the first book and its authentic its totally correct..i agree with you totally under the section of prophet muhammed mentioned in vedic scripture… sri sri ravishankar has quoted various verses of the vedas but only one verse has been given reference that is the mention of prophet muhammed in the scripture and he give the reference bhavishya purana parv 3 kand 3 adiyata 3 shlokas 5-6…I would like to congratulate you sri sri ravishankar that what u mentioned here is 100% correct…I would like to describe …though the verse was not mentioned here the reference is given…if you read the bhavishya purana parv 3 kand 3 adiyata 3 shlokas 5-8…which says that a malecha will come , a foreigner , speaking a foreign language …he wil come along with his companions.. that is his sahabas…. By the name Muhammed….. ( goes on quoting further from other books and says all this is pointing towards Muhammed salAllahu alaihiwasallam after his numerous quotation s s ravishankar said)….. thats good you all have to respect the Vedas now..the moulvi himself…the doctor himself…has said everyone should respect the vedas, don't think as the book of the kaafirs…or non believers ..so every muslim should respect all that is Indian and am very thankful to dr.hussain for bringing up this point and telling even the Vedas are same teaching the same knowledge and humanity and love for all humanity---( Concept of God in Hinduism and islam in light of sacred scriptures) 61. Zakir naik says Qura' is the best book dealing with art of living. an "…the best book dealing with the art of living it is the Glorious Qura'an" ( Concept of God in Hinduism and islam in light of sacred scriptures)
62. Zakir naik says he is student of islam and comparative religion as well as student of hindu scriptures. "…am just a student of islam and comparative religion as well as student of hindu scriptures and Vedas" ( Concept of God in Hinduism and islam in light of sacred scriptures)
63. Zakir Naik says the name found in hindu book –vishnu is name of Allah. "…the other name given to almighty god rig ved book no.2, hymn no.1, verse no.3 is Vishnu , Vishnu is called as the god who is the sustainer, if you translate sustainer in to Arabic it is somewhat similar to Rab.. we muslims have got no objection if someone calls almighty god as Rab or sustainer, but if someone says he is almighty god who has got 4 hands and giving an image to almighty god in one hand is the lotus ,the second hand is the counch traveling on the sea on a bed of snakes we muslims take strong objection to it, moreover
you are going against the yajur ved chapter no.32 verse no.3 which says –natasya pratima asti, of that god there is no pratima , there is no likness, there is no image, there is no picture, there is no statute, no sculpture…."( Concept of God in Hinduism and islam in light of sacred scriptures)
64.Zakir naik introduced as "Allaamatul Muslimeen" by the speaker in the King Fahd Hospital. (Islam Medical Science and Dieteray laws – VCD released by Peace Center) 65. zakir naik calls the books of Hinduism as authentic sacred scriptures. "..the best and the most appropriate method of understanding a religion is to try and authentic sources , the authentic scriptures of that relgion, if we have to understand Hinduism we have to understand the authentic sources the authentic sacred scriptures of hindusim and the most sacred scriptures in Hinduism are the Vedas..the Vedas are followed by the Upanishad, the ithihaas- ramyan mahabarat, bhagvat gita by the puranas manusmriti etc………"('Similarities between Hinduism and Islam',Chennai) 66. zaakir naik trying to prove ' Avtaara' Messengers. as "..let us discuss the 4th pillar of eemaan that is the messengers…first we discuss theMessenger Muhammed …., the common hindus they believe in avatar…avatar in sanscrit word derived from 'au' meaning down and 'thra' meaning pass over so avatar means coming down…or decending down…and according to oxford dictionary it says …that in hindu mythology avatar means decending of a religious sage or a diety on this earth in bodily form ….so the common hindu who believe that avatar is almighty god becoming a human being and coming into the world and the common hindu believes that Almighty god becomes human beings…become avatar so that he could fight against unrighteousness and he can protect his religion…. he comes down on the face of the earth to send the rules for the human beings….the do's and don'ts and to guide them…..and this concept they get from a verse of bhagvat gita chapter no.4 verse no.7 and 8 which says….. "yada yadahi darmasya………(zakir quotes the Sanskrit verse).." which is a very common verse recited in the beginig of mahabarata serial which means… that whenever there is (words unclear)…of righteousness and rise of unrighteousness I manifest myself ….verse no.8 says..to protect the good and to destroy the wicked …to establish the righteousness I manifest myself in every age…(Sanskrit quote) ..in every age I manifest myself…..this concept of avtaar is also repeated in bhagvat purana , khand 9, adyay 24, shlokas 56..it says whenever there is rise of unrighteouness and (words unclear) of sinfulness …I incarnate himself…..almighty god incarnate himself…so this concept of avatar …almighty god becoming human being ….which most commonly is understood by hindus is no where to be found anywhere in the veda…the avatar is not mentioned anywhere in the Vedas which are the most sacred of all the hindu scriptures….and the hindu scholars they say ……. (word unclear) hindu scholars..who are the pure vedantist…who purely believe in the Vedas ..they say that the Sanskrit word avatar is the position of almighty god its possessive ..it cannot refere to almighty god
himself…it can refer to almighty god sending a man …so these scholars they say that we have no objection almighty god sending a man in this world and if you read the Vedas there are several rishis whom almighty god has send in this world to guide the human beings….( similarities between Hinduism and Islaam, Chennai)

Dr. Zakir Naik' use of Deobandi Fatwa to save his skin: s
quote: (Zakir) Naik, who returned from Haj on Wednesday, conveyed his reaction through his brother Mohammed Naik: "At the peace conference, while replying to a question, I neither condemned nor lauded Yazid. I did say 'May Allah be pleased with him' while mentioning Yazid. I can show the fatwas from seminaries like Darul Uloom Deoband supporting my stand." The above quote is an extract from the Times of India Newspaper http://timesofindia.indiatimes.com/India/Row_over_Islamic_preachers_remarks_/articleshow/2653996.cms This was after the Shia were condemning him after the Peace Conference in 2007. What prevented our Brother in Islam, Dr. Naik from quoting from Qur'an and Sunnah? What prevented him from quoting from the Salafee Ulemah of the past and Present? He has to use a Deobandi Fatwa to protect himself from the Rafidhi criticism! Similarly there are press-releases on the internet regarding this same issue in which Dr. Naik lists the various organizations and Scholars who have given fataawa which support his stand. In that also he lists Darul Uloom Deoband at the top! Interestingly, the Deobandis have given quite a few fataawa telling their followers to not listen to Dr. Naik. One such fatwa from their website is attached. May Allaah guide him and us. Aameen. In the "About IRF" section on the website of Dr. Naik's organization (Islamic Research Foundation), it says quote: "IRF's activities and facilities provide the much needed understanding about the truth and excellence of Islamic teachings - based on the glorious Qur'an and authentic Hadith, as well as adhering to reasons, logic and scientific facts."
The bold in the above quote is mine. The screenshot is attached. Note that "Explanations of the Salaf"(Sahaabah, Tabieen, Atba ut tabieen and Imaams after them) is missing in the quote above. Also read the statements of the Salaf censuring logic, ilm ul kalaam, etc. on the various Salafee websites and even this forum. Doesn't Dr. Naik need to go and learn the Deen from the Ulemah of Ahlul Athar before he gives "Da'wah"? May Allaah guide him and us to the Siraat al-Mustaqeem. Aameen.

In case some don't know about some of the authors then, know that Mawdudi was the first Ameer of the deviant group Jamate islami. Shibli Naumani was a Deobandi. Muhammed Zakariyya Kandhelwi is called Shaykhul Hadith by Tablighi Jamaat. Now some might claim that he also sells books by Salafee Ulemah like Shaykh Ibn Baaz, Shaykh Rabee & others. The answer would be similar to what Shaykh Falaah hafidhahullah gave below quote: Someone came to Shaykh Falaah bin Ismaa'eel in Birmingham regarding such groups saying: "These groups (such as Ihyaa Turaath, Ahl-e-Hadith UK) are not deviated because they establish tele-links with the Salafi scholars!" The Shaykh replied (abridged): "Why do you not also say along with that that these groups set up links, conferences, lectures, panel sessions and much more than with ahlulbid'ah, with the Shee'ah, with the Raafidhah, with the Grave-worshipping Soofees, with Ikhwaanul-Muslimeen, with the Qutubees, with the people of deviated political ideologies with the Marxists and callers to other faiths?! Why do you not proclaim that likewise? Is it not true that they do that also?" The brother replied:
"Yes they do." So Shaykh replied, "Then where is their jealousy for the Sunnah and their love for it and their allegiance to it?!" source: http://www.salafitalk.net/st/viewmessages.cfm?Forum=9&Topic=5220
May Allah guide Dr. Naik, those co-operating with IRF and all of us to the Siraat al Mustaqeem. Aameen Attached is the Introduction to Dr. Zakir Naik as mentioned on the website of Islamic Research Foundation. As mentioned in the attached introduction, Dr. Naik is just an Orator. Obviously, any Muslim who wants to learn about Islam or how to give Da'wah to non-Muslims should learn from the Scholars and the Students of Islamic Knowledge and not from Orators.

As an example click http://spubs.com/sps/sp.cfm?secID=NDV&loadpage=displaysection.cfm I can confirm what Br. Abu Khadeejah said regarding Dr. Naik praising Salman al-Oadah and Safar alHawali in the 2nd link above. Some years ago I saw on ARY Digital Channel when Dr. Naik had gone to Pakistan, someone asked him a question regarding suicide bombing in the live phone-in question programme. And he mentioned (paraphrased) that there is a difference of opinion. Some Scholars like Shaykh Ibn Baz and Shaykh
Uthaymeen deem it impermissible. While other Scholars like Shaykh Salman al-Oadaah and Shaykh Safar al-Hawalee deem it permissible under certain conditions. WAllahu aalam.
