World’s Greatest Showman

Ali Sina on Zakir Naik: A review of

The Qur’an and the Bible in the Light of Science

By Ali Sina
2006/06/12

In 2000, a televised debate between Dr. William Campbell representing Christian view
point and Dr. Zakir Naik representing Islamic view point took place.

Pakistan Daily Times wrote:

On December 7, 2005, a TV channel (QTV or Al-Noor) showed a debate
between William Campbell and Zakir Naik, which showed the other side of
the polemic. In the past it was Zakir Naik trying to prove other religions
wrong; this time it was William Campbell rebutting his arguments.

This was fair enough. If you don’t want your religion criticized don’t do it
to other religions. When Dr. Campbell criticized Muslims for claiming
scientific discovery in the Quran one had to listen.

The TV channel took a fair decision, but when Dr. Campbell began cutting
close to where it hurt, the program was suddenly taken off in favor of na’at.
If this was done out of fear it was not a good decision and showed Dr Naik
in a bad light. (Later news is that Dr Naik won the debate.)

Muslims are convinced that Dr. Naik won that debate. In fact once you watch the video,
unless you know the Quran and Islam fairly well, this is the impression that you get. Dr.
Naik was so confident and so boisterous throughout the debate that anyone watching
would think the same.

Or did he? I went through this debate and have analyzed the talk of Dr. Naik paragraph by
paragraph. In this paper I have shown that Dr. Naik misrepresented every statement he
made on the Quran. There is not a single claim that Dr. Naik has made about the Quran
being miraculous or scientifically accurate that is true.

I have entitled this paper, World’s Greatest Showman, because after watching his
performance, in my opinion, it describes him best. Dr. Naik is a magician. Magicians
make you believe they cut people in two, make objects disappear and reappear and make
rabbits come out of an empty hat. But in reality none of that happens. The ability of the
magician is to make you believe in things that do not happen. Dr. Naik uses a different
kind of tools to perform his magic. He uses words. He can make his audience believe in

things that are not true. In this paper, I am going to show his tricks and what he uses as
setup to make things look differently. By the time you finish reading this paper, you'll be
able to detect them too. But that is not all. Since all the Muslims use the same tricks,
although not with the same proficiency of Dr. Naik, you'll be able to detect their tricks
too.

A good magician is dexterous and his moves are swift - so swift that they are hard to
detect. However, if you replay his acts and watch then in slow motion, or even frame by
frame, you may be able to catch his tricks. This is what I have done with Dr. Naik's talk.

This paper will eventually be available for free download and also in a printer friendly
format. It may even become available in a book format. I hope all those who have seen
the debate between Dr. Campbell and Dr. Naik and were swayed by Dr. Naik's
showmanship read this paper to see how he deceived everyone. Anyone who has seen or
heard Dr. Naik owes it to himself to read this paper. He rehashes the same things in all his
talks. Here, the tricks of a master magician are exposed. Read it and pass it on.

There is no doubt that Dr. Naik is great. One must acknowledge the merits of his
opponent. His greatness is in his ability to twist the truth. He is dexterous with words and
has an excellent memory for remembering the verses of the Quran. If he was a lawyer and
I was a criminal, I would want him as my attorney.

You can watch the debate by clicking on the links at the bottom of this page while
following the transcript in the following pages. When it comes to my responses, you can
click on pause and read what I have written.

I say it with all certainty that this paper demarks the end of Dr. Naik's glory and will bring
down his empire. Once his fans read this, it would be as if a balloon is punctured. They
will see through his veneers of lies and chicanery and his tower of cards will crumble. The
proof is overwhelming. Many of them may write to him asking him to respond. Dr. Naik
will not because he cannot. Perhaps he would come with silly conditions like he did
before, asking for a face to face debate or demanding that I organize a conference
attended by 10,000 people, or raise the reward of $50,000 dollars that I am offering to
anyone who can prove me wrong to one million dollars. Most likely someone else will
respond saying Ali Sina is not important for Dr. Naik to waste his time on.

These are of course lame excuses. There is nothing one can say in a face to face debate
that one cannot say in writing. The problem of a face to face debate is that one can play
'magic' and fool the audience, while this is not possible in a written debate.

17:81 Truth has (now) arrived, and Falsehood perished: for Falsehood is (by its nature)
bound to perish."

When this verse was first proclaimed (when Muhammad conquered Mecca) it was
anachronistic because then it was Falsehood that had taken over the Truth with force,
treason and tricks. Finally, thanks to the Internet, this violent force has become helpless
and Truth is reemerging. You can say that verse was false when uttered. But ironically, it
was prophetic because it is very true today. Today Truth is back with vengeance and
Falsehood is bound to perish.
