Salafi-Ahle Hadith Fatwas on Dr. Zakir Naik [ Part 1 ]

By: Maulana Muhammad A. K. Azad [ Abu Arif Al Alawi ]

                    Praise be to Allah. Peace and blessings be on His most beloved Prophet Muhammad Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam. Auspicious prayers be on the Holy companions  and the pure Ahle al-Bait of that exalted Prophet.


                     Ill-informed and unenlightened Ahle Hadith-Salafi masses may adore Zakir Naik to be their Messiah but their Scholars consider him to be a Zahil and calamity upon Muslim Ummah. Ahle Hadith-Salafi Scholars are also of the view that Mr. Naik’s Dawah is the Dawah of Shaytan. Let us have a look on a few of the opinions of Salafi-Ahle Hadith Scholars on Mr. Naik:

                                     No. 01 – Salafis say, Zakir Naik is a jaahil : “Zakir Naik is JAAHIL- Shaykh Abu Amr AbdulKareem al Hajooree hafidhahullah commented on zakir naik in bangalore, 2005.  [ Ref: salafitalk.netTopic: Dr.Zakir Naik Is JAAHIL !! Shaykh Abu Amr al Hajooree]

                                                No. 02 – Salafis say, 'Zakir Naik's Dawah is Dawah of Shaitan" In response to the following question about Zakir Naik  prominent Salafi Sheikh Yahya al Hajooree affirmed that Zakir Naik’s dawah is the dawah of Shaytan:

Q: Sheikh he (Zakir) also said that: "its mentioned in book no.8 chapter no. 1, verse no.1…ma chitanati sansad….all praises are due to him alone…..Alhamdulillahi rabbil aalameen…..same rig ved….book no.6 chapter no.45….verse no.16 says….yaek ekmushti hi…..there is only one  god…worship him alone, Qul huwaAllahu ahad……. How do you come to common terms?...taala ila kalimatin sawaaimbayna na  wa baynakum….come to common terms as between us and you….this is the  commonalities….that we prove from the Bible, from the Vedas, from the  Quraan…..come to common terms….read Your scriptures and understand the concept of god almighty correctly….then inshAllah we all will be  united"

                   Salafi  Sheikh Yahya al Hajooree’s reply:“Allah سبحانه و تعالى ordered His messenger صلى الله عليه وآلهوسلم to say:  "Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "O people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians)! Come to a word that is just between us and you, that we worship none but Allâh (Alone), and that we associate no partners with Him, and that none of us shall take others as lords besides Allâh." Then, if they turn away, say: "Bear witness that we are Muslims." (Aal Imraan: 64)

                      And your (Dr.Naik's) call is to (Ta'lao ila kutubikum) come to your (Hindus etc) scriptures [3], Rasoolullahصلى الله عليه وآله وسلم called kuffar to this book (Quran) and to this Islam and said: "In the name of Allah the Beneficent, the Merciful (This letter is) from Muhammad the slave of Allah and His Apostle to Heraclius the ruler of Byzantine. Peace be upon him, who follows the right path. Furthermore I invite you to Islam, and if you become a Muslim you will be safe, and Allah will double your reward, and if you reject this invitation of Islam you will be committing a sin by misguiding your Arisiyin (peasants). (And I recite to you Allah's Statement)  "O people of the scripture! Come to a word common to you and us that we worship none but Allah…" (Aal-Imran)

                      And when Musailama-al-Kadhdhab said: "If Muhammad صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم makes me his successor, I will follow him." Allah's Apostle صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم went up to him with Thabit bin Qais bin Shams; and Allah's Apostle صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم was carrying a piece of a date-palm leaf in his hand. He stood before Musailama (and his companions) and said, "If you asked me even this piece (of a leaf), I would not give it to you. You cannot avoid the fate you are destined to, by Allah. If you reject Islam, Allah will destroy you." And he used to recite Surah Fussilat: "Hâ-Mîm. A revelation from (Allâh) the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful. A Book whereof the Verses are explained in detail – a Qur'ân in Arabic for a people who know. Giving glad tidings and warning, but most of them turn away, so they hear not. And they say: "Our hearts are under coverings (screened) from that to which you invite us; and in our ears is deafness, and between us and you is a screen, so work you (on your way); verily, we are working (on our way)." (1-5)  Until the saying of Allahسبحانه و تعالى  "But if they turn away, then say (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "I have warned you of a Sâ'iqah (a destructive awful cry, torment, hit, thunderbolt) like the Sâ'iqah which overtook ' آd and Thamûd (people). When the Messengers came to them, from before them and behind them (saying): "Worship none but Allâh,…" (13-14)

                           This was the Dawah of Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم never did he call them and say: "come to (the common terms in) your scriptures, tales/fictions or your ancestors' stories etc" as you (Dr.Naik) says. And never so did Ibraheem عليه السلام or any other prophet that he came to his nation and said: "come to what you have from the books, tales/fictions or your ancestors' stories etc. So your ( Dr.Naik's) Dawah is the Dawah of Shaitan not the Dawah of prophets.”


                            No. 03 – Salafis say, 'Zakir Naik's misinterpret 150 Quranic Verses:   “Then what about Zakir Naik's open misinterpretation of the several numerous Aayaath of the Qur'aan which are close to 150 or perhaps more? Then what about Jam'iyyah Ahle Hadees al-Hind and some youngsters blindly following this man and corrupting the beliefs of the muslims in general and specifically the general people” [ Topic: Zakir Naik King Of Limbs And Aqeedah Of Ahl-us-Sunnah Wal Jamaa'ah]

                        No. 04 – Salafis say, 'Zakir Naik testifies  the false claims of the JewsZakir Naik says in definition he is a Jew and also calls himself a Christian and calls himself a Hindu too based on certain
explanations.  Reference: "…what is the definition of the word jew?.....the actual name of  the word jew one who praises God almighty….one who loves God
almighty….by definition I am a jew…I love Allah subhanwatala..i praise
Him…but if you say Jew with a capital "J" is a citizen of Israel then
am not a Jew…..what is the meaning of the word Christian….christian
means one who agrees with the teachings of Jesus Christ peace be upon
him…alhamdulillah, I agree with the teachings of Jesus Christ peace be
upon him….in that way I am a Christian….but if you say Christian is a
person who worship Christ then am not a Christian….what is the meaning
of the word Hindu…….the word Hindu is a geographical definition…
means those people who live in the land of Indus valley civilization….those who live in India…I live in India. by definition I am a Hindu…..swami Vivekananda said Hindu is a geographical definition…swamin vivekanda says it's a misnoma…..the correct word should be vedantist….because Hindus follow the Vedas….vedantist should be the right word….Hindu is a misnoma….but if you say Hindu is a person whodoes idol worship then am not a Hindu…..what's the meaning of the word
Muslim…Muslim is a person who submits his will to Allah subhanwatala….I submit my will to Allah subhanwatala am a Muslim…."

              Salafi Sheikh Yahya al Hajoore’s reply:This is incorrect; indeed the ulamas know the word "Yahood" is an ascription to a person whose name was "Hooda" and it is narrated from their saying that: "Inna Hudna Ilaik" (Certainly we have turned to You) [4] (Al-Aaraaf: 156) as for the definition "one who loves Allah (almighty)" how could the love confirm for them! It means that you are testifying their (false) claim, when they say: "And (both) the Jews and the Christians say: "We are the children of Allâh and His loved ones." (Al-Maidah: 18) Allah (refuted them and) said:"Say: "Why then does He punish you for your sins?" Nay, you are but human beings of those He has created" (Al-Maidah: 18)

                      It means by saying this you agrees with the saying and claim of Yahood which Allah (Rab-ul-Aalameen) has refuted: "And who is truer in statement than Allâh?" (An-Nisa: 87)

No. 05 – Salafis say, 'Zakir Naik is a Jew and 'Zakir Naik is Christian:

            Q: Zakir said: "by this definition I am a jew…I love Allah subhanwatala..i praise  Him…

             Salafi Sheikh Yahya al Hajooree’s reply:"Whoever says that he is on Deen other than Islam then he is as he says." [5] So this speech is really dangerous that one says, by this definition I am a Jew and by this definition I am a Christian. This is not the correct Dawah, Allah سبحانه و تعالى said:
"In order that Allâh may distinguish the wicked (disbelievers) from the good (believers), and put the wicked one over another, heap them together and cast them into Hell. Those! It is they who are the losers." (Al-Anfaal: 37)

                 It is obligatory to depart from this and it is obligatory to maintain the distinction from kuffar. Allah سبحانه وتعالى has honored the Muslim:
"By the fig, and the olive. By Mount Sinai. By this city of security (Makkah).Verily, We created man in the best stature (mould). Then We reduced him to the lowest of the low. Except those who believe and do righteous deeds. Then they shall have a reward without end ( Paradise)." (Surah Teen: 1-6) Those Musilms are excepted from that insult faced by Kuffar and you descend yourself to the status of Kuffar? Likewise Allah سبحانه و تعالى says:"By Al-'Asr (the time).Verily, man is in loss, Except those who believe and do righteous good deeds, and recommend one another to the truth, and recommend one another to patience." (Al-Asr: 1-3)

                      And you degrade yourself to the position of those losers claiming that you are a Jew and you are a Christian, it is authentically proved by Ibn Umar رضى الله عنه that Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم said: "Whosoever imitates with any nation then (indeed) the one is from amongst them."


                        No. 06 – Salafis lambast Zakir Naik for calling Zoroastrianism a Prophetic religion  :  Zakir Naik says, “Zoroastrianism is a non-semetic, Aryan, non vedic religion, which is not associated with Hinduism and it’s a Prophetic religion. It (Zoroastrianism) is also called as Persianism and it was founded by the Prophet Zoroaster.”

      Salafi Shaikh Yahyaa Al-Hajooree Shaykh said:  “This statement is false. For indeed Zoroastrianism is from the religions of atheism, and the matter of him (Zakir) affirming that this religion is Prophetic and attributing it to a Prophet from the Prophets, this does not prove that it is correct. So let’s assume it as a given that some people attribute that (religion) to a Prophet – according to what they say – then indeed what the Messenger of Allaah came with abrogates all of what the rest of the Prophets came with, regardless of whether those Prophets were ones whose names were known, or those whose names are unknown. Allaah, the Most High, said: “Of some of them We have related to you their story and of some We have not related to you their story.” (Ghaafir:78)

 And what was sufficient for this man and those like him is the statement of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, “And We have sent down to you (O Muhammad) the Book (this Qur'ân) in truth, confirming the Scripture that came before it and Muhayminan (trustworthy in highness and a witness) over it (old Scriptures). So judge between them by what Allâh has revealed, and follow not their vain desires, diverging away from the truth that has come to you. To each among you, We have prescribed a law and a clear way.” (Al-Maa’idah:48)

 And the statement of Allaah, the Mighty and Majestic, “And so judge (you O Muhammad) between them by what Allâh has revealed and follow not their vain desires, but beware of them lest they turn you (O Muhammad) far away from some of that which Allâh has sent down to you. And if they turn away, then know that Allâh’s Will is to punish them for some sins of theirs. And truly, most of men are Fâsiqûn (rebellious and disobedient to Allâh). Do they then seek the judgment of (the Days of) Ignorance? And who is better in judgment than Allâh for a people who have firm Faith.” (Al-Maa’idah:49-50)

 And it would also have been sufficient for him the statement of Allaah, glory be unto Him the Most High, in His Noble Book, “Then We have put you (O Muhammad) on a plain way of (Our) commandment. So follow that (Islâmic Monotheism and its laws), and follow not the desires of those who know not. Verily, they can avail you nothing against Allâh (if He wants to punish you). Verily, the Dhâlimûn (polytheists, wrong-doers, etc.) are Auliyâ' (protectors, helpers, etc.) to one another, but Allâh is the Walî (Helper, Protector, etc.) of the Muttaqûn (pious).” (Al-Jaathiyah:18-19)”


                        No. 07 – Salafis lambast Zakir Naik for Saying, Sikhism strictly believes in monotheism :Zakir Naik says, “Sikhism strictly believes in monotheism, and Almighty God…”

Salafi Shaikh Yahyaa Al-Hajooree Shaykh said said: “This statement contains one of two matters, or it contains both of two matters: So Sikhism, their religion is known, and it is known that they worship everything that walks or crawls. So even the vagina and the penis are from the greatest of their objects of worship, as well as the trees and cows. They also have numerous statements of disbelief. No man will disagree with another man who can see regarding the disbelief of the Sikhs, and that they are polytheists and idolaters. And Allaah, glory be unto Him the Most High, says in His Noble Book, “And whosoever disbelieves in the Faith (i.e. Oneness of Allâh and in all the other Articles of Faith [i.e. His (Allâh's), Angels, His Holy Books, His Messengers, the Day of Resurrection and Al*-Qadar (Divine Preordainments)], then fruitless is his work, and in the Hereafter he will be among the losers.” (Al-Maa’idah:5)

                         And He says, “Verily, those who disbelieve from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn (the polytheists) will abide in the Fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures.” (Al-Bayyinah:6)

                       So how can he (Zakir) affirm for them monotheism (At-Tawheed) when they are upon this idolatrous condition? can he affirm for these Sikhs, who are worshippers of cows, and vaginas, and trees, and whatever else that they worship besides Allaah – how can he affirm for them that they are people of monotheism (Muwahhidoon)!?

       ………….The conclusion is that the man (Zakir) has rolled up everything that crawls or walks into his pouch from the falsehoods. And there is not a paragraph from these paragraphs (from his statements in this letter) except that beneath it are deviations and falsehoods that Allaah knows. However, this is an allusion to things other than this.” [ Ref: Translated by Aqeel Walker, 3/26/07 Source:]

                   No. 08– Salafis  say, Zakir Naik’s Dawah is a mixture of Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity:In the programme of Zakir Naik, his brother Mohammed Naik asks all  audience to give 'standing ovation' (qayam tazeemi) to swami (the programme was organised by kerala nadvatul mujahideen)  Reference:  Mohammed Naik( chairperson of the programme and brother of zakir naik) says: "…..thank you swamijee very much on behalf of the salafi learning and research center, Calcutta….i thank you very much for your esteemed presence…..amongst us and sharing your knowledge….Give him a STANDING OVATION …… ..I WOULD REQUEST THE BROTHERS TO KINDLY GIVE SWAMIJEE A STANDING OVATION FOR HIS PRESENCE AND SHARING SO MUCH INFORMATION……and we grant him leave ..for his other commitments …thank you swamijee inshAllah we hope to be in touch with you (Symposium- religion in the right perspective------"Presenting Islaam and Clarifying Misconceptions –Lecture series by Dr.Zaakir Naik, Developed by AHYA Multi-Media- 12 Enlightening Sessions)

            Salafi Sheikh's Reply:  “It means that this whole group is on single methodology, Dr.Zakir his brother and all of them with Hindus on the single Dawah. Wallahu Musta'an.  It isn't allowed to provoke people to stand up for such Hindu where the Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم said: "Whoever loves that the people appear before him standing (up for him), then let him find his seat in the Hellfire." [6]

                 And then you involve yourself in it and ask the Hindus to participate with you in your Dawah. This Dawah is a mixture of Judaism, Hinduism, Christianity, Rafidiyyah (Shias), Ikhwaniyyah (Jamat Islami etc) and Aqlaniyyah (rationalists/ those who speaks with logics) there is no distinction between Haq and Batil.”


                              No. 09– Salafis compares Zakir Naik’s dawah with those who are Kafirs & Zandeeqs:    Zakir Naik has an institution/organization where he trains people so they learn his manhaj (methodology) to give Dawah to non-Muslims etc and they learn how to debate with kuffars?

                    Salafi Sheikh Sheikh Abu Amr Al-Hajori replies: “His institute is just like the institution of Zindani here in Yemen for interfaith dialogues. They have seminars or conferences in Sudan called "Wahdatal Adyaan" (oneness of religions) i.e. similarity/oneness of Judaism, Christianity and Islam and their claim is that we are trying to find things similar among these religions in order that we could be one and we all are brothers (universal brotherhood), they named it as "Deen Samawiyyah" (divine religion). So there are some people striving in this way and on the top of them is Turabi who has been declared as kafir by scholars due to some of his disbelieving viewpoints and this is not the place to discuss them. As for Zindani then he refuted this concept of "Deen Samawiyyah" just because of fearing from the Ulamas of Yemen that they may refute him, he twisted the term by "interfaith dialogue" or "Tawheed of Adyaan" and the permanent committee of scholars of Saudi Arabia has passed a verdict on it that "whoever calls to the Wahdatal Adyaan than he is Zandeeq (an apostate)" and there's no doubt in it I say. So this institution and the likes call it "interfaith dialogue" which is in fact "Wahdatal Adyaan". We even Fear that its appearance is Islam while undercover it deviating people from Islam”.


                              No. 10– Salafis say, Zakir Naik’s Dawah &  the  dawah of Hindu Daee is same:     Salafi Shaykh was asked, “Zaakir Naik says he agree with swamijee in toto on the statement made by swamijee that all religions believe in the same one God and says he  (zakir) has proved it practically from the scriptures of various  religions.Reference: "…..there were certain comments made by Swamijee and FatherGeo…..And I do agree with Swamijee when he said that all religions believe in the same one god I DO AGREE WITH HIM IN TOTO  ...I agree with him…I besides agreeing…I proved it practically from the scriptures ofthe various religions that all religions actually believe in one  God….people speak theoretically …but am a man who believe more in action not only in speaking….and practically showing ..Which I will  show in the course of my rebuttal…………" (Symposium- religion in the right perspective------"Presenting Islaam and Clarifying Misconceptions –Lecture series by Dr.Zaakir Naik, Developed by AHYAMulti-Media- 12 Enlightening Sessions)

                  Salafi Sheikh's Reply: “This means that he agrees with the Hindu Daee that our Dawah is the same and we worship the same God knowing that those Hindus are the worshippers of cow and he (Dr.) calls towards the convergence and unity with Hindus, and lying that they (Hindus) believe in one God, and in fact he belied by this speech.”


                                      No. 11– Salafis say, Zakir Naik is a blockhead:   Salafi  Sheikh Abu Amr Al-Hajori  says, “O brothers! He is a Jahil as we have already proved, Jahil from the Deen of Allah. There is a nice speech of Sheikh-ul-Islam (rahmatullah alahi) on this i.e. concerning the legislation of ascription to Salafiyyah [10] and there is a hadith narrated by Bukhari and Muslim that Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم said to Fatima رضى الله عنها "Indeed what a good Salaf I am for you.”

                     Likewise Imam Muhammad ibn Sireen رحمة الله عليه said in the introduction of Sahih Muslim with a sahih sanad that: "They (the Sahaabah) did not used to ask concerning the isnaad (chain of narration), but when the fitnah /bidah occurred, they (the Sahaabah) began saying: 'Name your men for us.' So the People of the Sunnah (Ahl us Sunnah) would be looked to and so their hadeeth would be accepted. And the People of Innovation would be looked to and so their hadeeth would not be accepted."
                             Therefore they were famous for being AhlusSunnah and it was said that so and so Alim is Sunni or Salafi so this speech of him (Dr.Zakir) is wrong. These titles were well-known among the Salaf Sunni, Salafi, Muhaddith or from Ahlulhadith and it is not the condition that hadith must be sahih (means ahlulhadith don't need to call themselves ahl-e-sahih-hadees) because when we said ahlehadith obviously the sahih hadith is intended. As we don't mention hadith except which is sahih and incase if it is Daeef it is obligatory upon us to mention its weakness. Like we say narrated by ibn Umar رضى الله عنه so and so means that it is sahih because had it would be daeef, we should have mentioned it. The word "hadith" in its absolute meaning implemented on hadith sahih, the hadith of Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم because (as we know) any kalam is called hadith but when it is intended according to its absolute meaning it means hadith of Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم.

And no doubt it is a fabrication and falsehood that he said against AhlusSunnah that they are of different types so we say to you O Zakir Naik as for Suroor Zain-ul-Aabideen  who resides in UK the land of kufr doesn't count amongst ahlusSunnah or Salafis rather they (surorees) are different than them (salafis)”

                                No. 12– Salafis say , Zakir Naik may black his face by ink but cannot write book:  Salafi SHEIKH ABDUL KAREEM AL HAJORI, in response to Zakir Naik’s view that Zoroastrian  is a Prophet, says, “He is a Prophet? And the Prophet called towards the worship of fire?? How can it be possible? What kind of speech is this? Moreover this speech of him went against what he claimed before i.e. all the religions call people towards the worship of one God, therefore this speech is wrong. Rather if he believes that any Prophet from amongst the Prophets called towards the worship of other than Allah سبحانه وتعالى , he will disbelieve/apostate by this speech as it is a speech of Kufr. And his condition is according to this Arabic verse.
فدع عنك كتابك لست منها
ولو سودت وجهك بالمداد

So refrain yourself from writing books as you are not capable of it
  Even if you blacked your face by ink

So our advice for Dr.Zakir Naik is that he should seek knowledge i.e. he should learn Quran and Sunnah first and then start giving Dawah.”


                            No. 13– Salafis say , Zakir Naik has committed shirk:   Dr. Zakir Naik says, he can list a 1000 things which
Allah cannot do and Salafis admit that it is shirk.
   Reference: "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 Originator of
creation…the Creator of the primordial 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 room 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 longer that man remains
short….but you cant have a tall short man 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 … 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
doma…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)

                          Salafi Shaykh answers :   “Explaining Allah (subhanahu wa ta'la) like this is against the principle we have mentioned in the beginning. It's disrespecting Allah and restricting the power of Allah ta'la by the Aqal of human beings.  "No knowledge have they of such a thing, nor had their fathers. Mighty is the word that comes out of their mouths. They utter nothing but a lie." (Al-Kahf: 5)
                               All this is being done in the name of Dawah to Non-Muslims and drawing them near to Islam. No doubt their intention might be good but we have two conditions to be fulfilled for any action to be valid in Islam
1-       Ikhlaas (sincerity for Allah)
2-       Muwafiqat-us-Sunnah (must be according to Sunnah of the prophet-sallahoalahi wasallam).

                            And the above mentioned speech of Dr.Zakir shows that he doesn't have any knowledge of the Sunnah of the prophet and the Sunnah of his companions as well as what is the rules and principles of Aqeedah to AhlusSunnah. This careless speech about Allah without knowledge is Haram to the extent that Allah mentioned it above Shirk in the following verse:
"Say (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]): "(But) the things that my Lord has indeed forbidden are Al-Fawâhish (great evil sins and every kind of unlawful sexual intercourse) whether committed openly or secretly, sins (of all kinds), unrighteous oppression, joining partners (in worship) with Allâh for which He has given no authority, and saying things about Allâh of which you have no knowledge." (Al-A'araaf: 33)
                      Allah starts the verse with the least of sin then gradually explains the more severer, starts it with Fawahish then oppression then Shirk then finally "saying things about Allâh of which you have no knowledge" this explanation is narrated by some Salaf.”


                            No. 14– Salafis say , Zakir Naik is a Munafiq: Q: He (Dr.Zakir Naik) claims that belief in God not required any condition while rejection or kufr in Allah required conditions?

                   Sheikh Abu Amr's reply: This speech is not correct. Yes, there are certain conditions which must be accompanied with Iman in Allah. Some of them are saying "La ilaha ila Allah" with Sidq (truthfulness) like if he confess kalima but he is lying. Will it benefit him? No, the merely utterance of kalima never benefited the hypocrites. They confessed "la ila illa Allah" and "Muhammad-ur-Rasoolullah", they prayed, gave charity and even sometimes participated in jihad also but Allah said  "Verily, the hypocrites will be in the lowest depth (grade) of the Fire..." (An-Nisa: 145)

                                   They will be in the lowest depth of the fire even lower than that of kuffar. So their Iman didn't benefit them, there must be conditions for Iman until it can be called perfect Iman. Like Tasdeeq (confirmation), Iqrar (affirmation), Rida (consent), Sidq ( truthfulness),…(words unclear)… Inqiyaad (submission) and other conditions.
                             The statement La ilaha ill Allah has seven conditions, and they are: 'Ilm (Knowledge), Yaqeen (Certainty), 'Ikhlaas (Sincerity), Sidq (Truthfulness), Mahabbah (Love), Inqiyaad (Submission), and Qubool (Acceptance) [1]

                          So as the story of munafiq who criticized on Rasoollah ( صلى الله عليه وسلم) on the occasion of the distribution of maal-e-fae, he said "O Muhammad! Do justice" on which Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم replied "who will do justice if I don't!"…it was asked from Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم to grant permission to kill this Munafiq. Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وسلم refrained them saying that maybe he prays and said "how many a Musalleen (who prays) whose Iman not yet entered their hearts.
"The bedouins say: "We believe." Say: "You believe not but you only say, 'We have surrendered (in Islâm),' for Faith has not yet entered your hearts. But if you obey Allâh and His Messenger [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam], He will not decrease anything in reward for your deeds. Verily, Allâh is Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Al-Hujuraat: 14)  So the Iman can never benefit only by mere utterance but with firm Aetiqad (faith) (honesty, sincerity etc).
                        And so the Sheikh ul Islam Ibn Taymiyyah (rahimaullah) said in his book "Sarim ul Maslool" that linguistically Iman means Tasdeeq wal Iqrar. And in the Istalah (the terminology of Islam) it is utterance by the tongue; believe in the hearth and actions with the limbs. Except if someone is Murjiyyah or Jahmiyyah because the Jahmiyyah says indeed the Iman is only Ma'rifah (knowledge or awareness), so this is the definition of Iman to Jahmiyyah as for Muslims there must be conditions for Iman to be fulfilled. “

No. 15– Salafis say , Zakir Naik is teaching falsehood:   “Q- Zakir Naik says Sikhism (an off-shoot of Hinduism) strictly believes
in monotheism.(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)

                 Salafi Shaykh answers:  “This speech of him necessitates one out of two things or both of them:The Sikhs their religion is apparent that they worship almost everything. So the private parts of men and women, as well as trees and cows are the greatest Gods of them and likewise they have so many beliefs of Kufr that no two sound persons will disagree in the Kufr of Sikhs and that they are Mushrikoon and idolaters. Allah سبحانه وتعالى says in His Glorious Book that: "And whosoever disbelieves in Faith [i.e. in the Oneness of Allâh and in all the other Articles of Faith, i.e. His (Allâh's) Angels, His Holy Books, His Messengers, the Day of Resurrection and Al-Qadar (Divine Preordainments)], then fruitless is his work; and in the Hereafter he will be among the losers." (Al-Maidah: 5)  And He s.w.t. says:
"Verily, those who disbelieve (in the religion of Islâm, the Qur'ân and Prophet Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn, will abide in the fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures."

                     So how then Tawheed is affirmed for them while they are in this idolatry?........................................So this speech of Zakir could be because of the Aqeedah of Hulool, if not, then how he affirms for those Sikhs (the worshippers of cows, genitals, trees and all that they worship other than Allah سبحانه وتعالى) that they are Muwahhidoon (Monotheists)!?

                       Or the other possibility is that his speech is little bit influenced by from the speech of the Jahmiyyah when they say that: "Eman is only knowledge" whosoever knows Allah سبحانه وتعالى then one is Muwahhid. It is narrated from Ibn Abil Izz r.a. in his book "Sharh Aqeedah At-Tahawiyyah": "Indeed this speech necessitates that Pharaoh was amongst Muwahhideen since he denied but his heart was convinced. Allah said that: "And they denied them (those Ayât) wrongfully and arrogantly, though their own selves were convinced thereof [i.e. those (Ayât) are from Allâh, and Mûsâ (Moses) is the Messenger of Allâh in truth, but they disliked to obey Mûsâ (Moses), and hated to believe in his Message of Monotheism]…" (An-Naml: 14)

                   And this speech necessitates that indeed the Prophets were unjustly fighting against Mushrikeen and idolaters but this is incorrect. Because they were the worshippers of stones, trees and other false deities, so if the matter was like that (as Jahmiyyah claimed) then they were considered to be worshipper of Allah s.w.t. as they knew this. So the essentials of this speech are falsehoods. In the consequence is that this man is enclosed everything in his quiver from falsehoods, there's no any statement from amongst those statements except inside it from deviances and falsifications which Allah s.w.t. knows better. But this is an indication to what else than this.”

                        No. 16– Salafis say , Zakir Naik is teaching Major Shirk: Zakir Naik says Sikhism (an off-shoot of Hinduism) strictly believesin monotheism. Naik says:  "Sikhism strictly believes in monotheism.. and almighty god in the
unmanifest form is called ek omkar and in manifest form is called
Omkar and guru grant sahib he gave various attributes to this AlmightyGod ….." (Concept of God in Major religions- from the CD-"Presenting Islaam and Clarifying Misconceptions –Lecture series by Dr.ZaakirNaik, Developed by AHYA Multi-Media- 12 Enlightening Sessions)

                    Salafi Answer: The manifest meaning of this speech is that this man affirmed other Gods with Allah s.w.t. whereas Allah the Almighty says:"Had there been therein (in the heavens and the earth) âlihah (gods) besides Allâh, then verily, both would have been ruined. Glorified is Allâh, the Lord of the Throne, (High is He) above all that (evil) they associate with Him! " (Al-Anbiya: 22)This is what our Lord Allah the Exalted says:
"What! Can there be a doubt about Allâh, the Creator of the heavens and the earth? He calls you (to Monotheism and to be obedient to Allâh) that He may forgive you of your sins and give you respite for a term appointed" (Al-Ibraheem: 10)

                     So the affirmation of deities with Allah s.w.t. is a major Shirk and if he is pleased with it that they are their Gods therefore they may worship them, and called them Muwahhiddon because of this. Then Allah s.w.t. said that:"That is because Allâh, He is the Truth, and that which they invoke besides Him is Al-Bâtil (falsehood, Satan and all other false deities); and that Allâh, He is the Most High, the Most Great." (Surah Luqman: 38) And He s.w.t. said:"And I (Allâh) created not the jinn and mankind except that they should worship Me (Alone)." (Surah Dhariyaat: 56) And He s.w.t. said: "Worship Allâh and join none with Him (in worship)…" (Surah Nisa: 36)


                   No. 17– Salafis say , Zakir Naik is adhered to wickedness, transgression, evilness and sinfulness:  Zaakir Naik said: "The common Hindu…the common Muslim Alhamdulillah… we love each other ….we love our non-muslim brothers..." (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)

 Salafi Sheikh Yahya Al-Hajori’s reply: “ We seek Allah's refuge from this Fajoor (wickedness, transgression, evilness and sinfulness) which contradicts to the saying of Allah سبحانه وتعالى that: "You (O Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]) will not find any people who believe in Allâh and the Last Day, making friendship with those who oppose Allâh and His Messenger (Muhammad [sal-Allâhu 'alayhi wa sallam]), even though they were their fathers or their sons or their brothers or their kindred (people)…." (AlMujadalah: 22)

                See, my brothers how those Ikhwan-ul-Muslimeen and those who associate to their thoughts of Aqlania  love all the Kuffars and Mulhideen (atheists/ infidels), while on the other side they themselves refrain and keep others away from the Ulama of Sunnah and Deen. This is upon all those who are the followers of such concepts or other than them that they should love for the sake of Allah سبحانه وتعالى because what they are doing is against the Hadiths of Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم such as: "A believer for his fellow-believer is just like foundation which strengthen each other" or the saying of Allah سبحانه وتعالى :
"But if they repent [by rejecting Shirk and accept Tawheed], perform As-Salât and give Zakât, then they are your brethren in religion." (At-Tawbah: 13)

                    The correct understanding of the above verse is that there is no brotherhood except for Deen. As for them ( Ikhwaan/ Aqlanis etc) then their brotherhood is for everyone even for the Shaitan, having this fragile and destructive Aqeedah and those who adhere to them haven't have any Wala for the Haq and Bara for the Batil.
                Narated By 'Aisha رضى الله عنه : When the Prophet صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم became ill, some of his wives talked about a church which they had seen in Ethiopia and it was called Mariya. Um Salma and Um Habiba had been to Ethiopia, and both of them narrated its (the Church's) beauty and the pictures it contained. The Prophet raised his head and said, "Those are the people who, whenever a pious man dies amongst them, make a place of worship at his grave and then they make those pictures in it. Those are the worst creatures in the Sight of Allah."

Allah سبحانه وتعالى named them "the worst of creatures" when He سبحانه وتعالى said:
"Verily, those who disbelieve from among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians) and Al-Mushrikûn, will abide in the fire of Hell. They are the worst of creatures" (Al-Bayyinah: 06)

How then you love "the worst of creatures"?!



                        No. 18– Salafis say , Zakir Naik is a rationalist :Zakir Naik Calls Hindus as Dear Brother, My Hindu Friend & says that
to reach the common terms mentioned in Quraan we have to use the Hindu religious books and asks Muslims to memorise the verses from hindu religious books to do dawah to hind.   Reference: "..the question posed by the brother was..the hindus they don't themselves read the Gita..they don't know much about their holy scripture…they only know about Krishna..etc….so do we do dawah withthem….what we have to tell them…the we have to ask them….as the Quraan says…ta'alau ila kalimatan sawaaimbaina na wa baina kum….that come to  common terms as between us and you…which is the first term?....Allah na'abuda ilAllah…that we worship none but Allah…wa laa nushrika bihi…that we associate no partners with him…the holy quraan says thebest way to do da'awah is to say…Allah na'abuda ilAllah……… if they quote about Krishna …you have to say: DEAR BROTHER… MY HINDU FRIEND where do u come to know about Krishna …he will say in mahabarat in bagwat gita ….let him do the job..bhagwat gita is one of the holy scripture of the hindus ….so you have to say ..since you believe in bhagwat gita….and you quote krishna..bagwat gita also says in chapter no.7..verse no.19 to 23 it says….all those who do idol worship they are materialistic people…those who do idol worship they are materialistic people…..they say when they speak about Krishna and  other lord they say we come to know about these things from the Vedas……they give a talk quoting from the Vedas that if you say you believe in lord Krishna is mentioned in mahabarat in gita…you believe in certain lord ram because you belive in Ramayan believe in the veda etc…SO IF YOU BELIEVE IN PARTS OF VEDAS ..YOU HAVE TO BELIEVE AS A WHOLE..YOUR VEDAS EVEN PROPHESIESED ABOUT
OUR BELOVED PROPHET.. and I gave quotations from atharva ved…from rig ved from sam ved…about the prophesy of our beloved prophet….. . You  can even speak to them… Allah na'abuda ilAllah…..that we worship none but Allah…. Wa la nushrika bihi…that we associate no partners with him…you have to tell them…. Its mentioned in your ved …in the Rig ved…chapter no.32..verse no.3…it says…..Na tasya pratima asti….of that
god no image can be made…it's a Sanskrit quotation…in the same Yajur ved.. chapter no. 40 verse no.88…it says….god is imageless and
bodyless….same Yajur ved chapter no.40 verse no.9 says….all those who worship the 'asamboothi' …that means the natural things like water, earth, air they are in darkness…and the verse continue in Sanskrit…. 'andaatma pravishanti yasamboothi upaasthe'…..they are entering more  in darkness those who worship the created things….the 'samboothi'..the table, chair, idol etc… who says that.. DON'T TALK ABOUT THE QURAAN…YOUR SCRIPTURE SAYS THAT…your scripture also says..ekam brahmam
dusya naste niya naste naste kinchan…bhagwaan ek hi hai doosra nahi hai..nahi hai ..nahi hai… zaraa bhi nahi..hai….there is only one god not a second one not at all …not at all …not in the least bit….you
have to say ….tala ila kalimatan bayna na wa baynakum….that come to  common terms as between us and you….IF THEY DON'T KNOW THEIR SCRIPTURE YOU MEMORISE CERTAIN VERSES OF THEIR SCRIPTURES WHICH MATCH WITH THE HOLY QURAAN because the Quraan is the Furqaan…we don't agree that  their scripture is word of Allah subhanwatala…the scripture that they have …the veda…we don't agree it is totally the word of Allah subhanwatala….by name we know four revelations…the torah , zaboor, the injeel and furqaan…. But the holy Quran also says.. in other places in  surah Rad chapter no. 13 .verse no.38 says….we have send a revelation to every nation….several revelations were send down …by name we know four…So Vedas if the hindu asks …is it a revelation of God Almighty…..i say I don't know….it may be…but even if it is a  revelation of God Almighty… was only meant for that time….today you have to believe in last and final revelation that is the holy quraan…not in the revelation which was time bound….even if it was….i cant say for sure… not saying it's the word of god….but we can use  the quraan…. Quraan is the Furqaan…the criteria to judge right from wrong…you can use the criteria to know….see there are certain parts in the bible…which match the quraan….which we say ..this part of the bible…we can say may be the word of god….this part of the veda which  says….la ekat mushti hi…there is only one god worship him alone….rig ved volume no.6 chapter no.45 verse no.16 may be a word of god…but the….whole veda we don't agree the word of god….hope that answers the question….." ( Muhammed in the various world religious scriptures—from CD -"Presenting Islaam and Clarifying Misconceptions –Lecture series by Dr.Zaakir Naik, Developed by AHYA Multi-Media- 12 Enlightening Sessions)

                             Salafi Sheikh Yahya Al-Hajori’s reply:  This speech of him shows that this man never adopted the methodology of the Callers towards Allah سبحانه وتعالى with Baseerah (sure knowledge/insight) rather he adopted the methodology of Aqlania (rationalists/ rhetoric philosophers). So addressing a Hindu with Azeez (dear/beloved/honorable) brother who worships the private part of his wife or prostitute, or milks and feeds the cow then worships and prostrates her! You address them with dear/beloved/honorable where Allah سبحانه وتعالىsays: "And whomsoever Allâh disgraces, none can honour him." (Al-Hajj: 18)

                     But there is a point in it; Yes, he can be Azeez (honorable) because of his wealth or as per this verse: "Then pour over his head the torment of boiling water. Taste you (this)! Verily, you were the mighty/honorable, the generous!" (Al-Dukhan: 49) Which means one may use it as a mockery but as for using it unconditionally then it is prohibited; this is because Rasoolullah صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم said in the hadith in which he taught Du'a of Qunoot to Hasan رضى الله عنه narrated by Ashabus Sunnan with authentic sanad:"One that You (Allah) befriend is not abased, and one that You make enemy, will not be honored"

                    If he intended the Deeni brotherhood then this is Haram, Allah سبحانه وتعالى said:"But if they repent [by rejecting Shirk and accepting Tawheed], perform As-Salât and give Zakât, then they are your brethren in religion." (At-Tawbah: 11)   The concept of this verse is that whoever doesn't repent from Kufr neither offers prayers nor gives Zakat then such one is not our brother in Deen and if he intended the brotherhood of Teeniya (as all human beings are created from clay) not Deeniya then it could be possible from one aspect like the saying of Allah سبحانه وتعالى:"A'ad (people) denied the Messengers. When their brother Hûd said to them: "Will you not fear Allâh and obey Him?" (Ash-Shu'ara: 123-124)

                         So many messengers said the same thing i.e. "When their brother said to them" means the brotherhood of Teeniya as for brotherhood of Deeniya this is impossible/prohibited between Kafir and Muslim.”

                           No. 19– Salafis say , Zakir Naik is a misguided individual :  “Some Muslims assume that Salafees refute Dr. Zakir Naik only because he doesn't use the "label" of 'Salafi' or 'Ahlul Hadeeth' but in reality he is really following Qur'an and authentic Ahadeeth and is a good Muslim. We advise these Muslims, may Allah bless them, to read refutations of the individuals and parties mentioned above and then contemplate - will any Muslim who truely has love for the deen allow misguided sects & individuals like Deobandis, Jamaat-e-Islami, etc. to use his platform? Please contemplate on the quotes of Rasoolullah sallallahu alayhi wa sallam and the Salaf rahimahumullah foun.” [ Ref: Topic: The Calamity Of Zakir Naik Upon The Ummah -- page: 1 2

               No. 20– Salafis say , Zakir Naik is not a Scholar :    “Are Mr. Deedat rahimahullah and Dr. Naik "Scholars"? Sometime back Dr. Naik used to refer to himself as "Student of Comparative religion". Sometimes he refers to himself as "Student of Knowledge". Sometimes he is referred as "Orator". Sometimes he is referred as "Allaamatul Muslimeen" by some of his supporters. And now "World Renowned Scholar"! May Allah guide these "Orators" to the correct manhaj and guide those who support them or listen to their lectures. Aameen.” [ Ref: Topic: The Calamity Of Zakir Naik Upon The Ummah -- page: 1 2]

                      No. 21– Salafis say, Zakir Naik is a Bidati and ignorant  :   It has reached me that Shaykh Yahyaa al-Haajooree  from Dammaaj has refuted Zakir Naik and our brothers in Yemen have compiled it and we await this detailed refutation from the Shaykh. May Allaah reward the Shaykh and everyone who has made effort to apporach the people of knowledge about this individual.

                      Now, in India, the students from Madeenah university have turned out to warn against the deviations of this individual walhamdulillaah and I pray to Allaah that He raises amongst the people of al-Hind those who will carry out the serving of the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allaah  just where Nawab Siddique Hasan Khan , Shamsul-Haq al-Adheemaabaadee , Abdur Rahmaan Mubarakfooree , Abdus Salaam Mubarakfooree and Ubaidullaah Mubarakfooree have left.

                    Ghaayath-il-Maqsood Fee Hall-i-Sunan Abee Dawood, Shams-ul-Haq al-Adheemaabaadee intended to write and comiple in 32 volumes however only 21 volumes could be completed...And there are various other works of the scholars of hadeeth that have not been published, it has become very difficult to locate these precious books. May Allaah include us amongst those who will aid the Sunnah in whatever possible way. May Allaah raise again the scholars of hadeeth from al-Hind who will annihilate every innovation, deviation and guide the people towards the Straight Path………….. May Allaah guide us to His Straight Path and save us from the innovations and the deviants and love the Sunnah and love those who carry the Sunnah of the Messenger of Allah (Õáì Çááå Úáíå æÓáã)and chase everyone who promotes innovations, who help and aid such ignorant leaders of misguidance leaving and deserting the Sunnah.” [ Ref: salafitalk.netTopic: Dr.Zakir Naik Is JAAHIL !! Shaykh Abu Amr al Hajooree]

                                No. 22---Salafis’ intense civil war On Zakir Naik : “Zakir Naik was invited to the Jamiyyah Ahle Hadees conference (I have also seen his photograph in other Jamiyyah Ahle Hadees conference, and they publish this in magazine which I have myself seen). The Jamiyyah is well known to promote him.Everyone knows the Ahle Hadees Youth Association(AHYA), which distributes his tapes,video lectures, CDs etc. The Jamiyyah Ahle Hadees is well known to support Zakir Naik and his followers against the Salafees in Bangalore. Today they are distributing a tape against him for he said something that was against the Jamiyyah Ahle Hadees Hind and one of their heads Abdul Hameed Rahmani has attempted to refute him on the same stage. Today they realize what Salafees have been saying from past two years but they are opposing him for just the reason that he said something against the Jamiyyah. Declined to be from the Jamiyyah Ahle Hadees Hind. It is not in defence of Salafiyyah, its scholars for they(Jamiyyah Ahle Hadees Hind) are known to hinder and place obstruction , stopped the books of  Allamah, Muhaddith-al-Asr, Mujaddid of this era, Shaikh Muhammad Nasirudden Al-Albanee(rahimahullah) as reported by Abdul Baree Fathullah al Hindee in his translation of the book 'Sifath Salaat an-Nabi...' which will soon be translated into english and posted here Insha Allah. You have left the Ulamaa-i-Ahl-us-Sunnah, so you are left to fight on your own. You have stopped the books of the ulamaa reaching the common people,the books of Nawab Siddique Hasan Khan, Abdur Rahman Mubarakfooree, Abu Tayyib ShamsulHaq al-Adheemabadee and others, and have promoted the books of those who are not the Scholars, inheritors of the prophets, witnessed by the well known Mashaikh of Salafiyyah and you have buried the Manhaj. So you cannot explain to the people what you did not call them to, what you have been hiding 'The methodology of Salaf us Saalih'; and you fought with the Salafees when they were calling towards it, opposed the tapes and articles that they were distributing, called them 'The dot coms' 'The dot coms'. I will put Abdul Hammed Rahmani's answer at appropriate time Insha Allah.

                     You have not introduced the common masses to the true Ulamaa and further confused the people and attemted to refute the salafees aiding and distributing the tapes of Zafar ul Hasan. Today, you are forced to say what Salafees used to say, today your deceptions are clear and well known except for the stubborn hizbiyyeen. There was a time when people used to quote fatwas from Zakir Naik and Bilal Philips and its the majority of muslims who attend his speeches on so called 'Comparative Religion'. The 'miskeen' who do not know their religion, started learning quotations from Bible etc. and today they defend this man, traverse his methodology, spread his tapes, books, CD's etc. to the muslims for teaching them how to speak to a Non-Muslims. This has become knowledge for them, this has become their dawah while they don't know the fundamentals of Ahl us Sunnah. Hence they fight against the Salafees, Salafiyyah and its Shaikhs and defend the likes of  Salih al Munajjid, Abul fitan, Zakir Naik, Bilal Philips and Zafar ul Hasan and all those  whom Zakir has links to, those whom Bilal promotes, Zafar ul Hasan supports etc.

                   Today, they wish to dilute our call, mix the books of the Ulamaa with the books of hizbiyyeen, qutubiyyeen and those who oppose our ulamaa so as to decieve the common people but to whom Allah guides none can misguide. They used to tell people that Zakir Naik and Ahmed Deedat are great Islamic Scholars;Bilal Philips, Zafar ul Hasan were projected as  'Scholars'. Today, those who used to say this are shy to repeat this. Allahu Akbar, now they accuse salafees of calling them 'Jaahils' to gain the sympathy of common people as if they were oppressed by the Salafees. Allah will uncover your deceptions Insha Allah, hair by hair, flesh by flesh, bone by bone.

                    The following one of the questions posed to Zakir Naik. This will Insha Allah be presented to the Ulamaa and then we will spread the respone Insha Allah. Those who know the basics of Manhaj will be able to understand the filth that this man has uttered Insha Allah. Remember! this is just the beginning, you will know soon that which was hidden from you all Insha Allah. All Praise be to Allah Who has guided us to the Book, the Sunnah and the methodology of Salaf us Salih. Those who do not have knowledge please do not refute this man on this post, for if you commit mistakes, it will be used against your brothers here in Bangalore, it will be used to dilute and cover him up. So beware of this, you will be held responsible. May Allah guide us to the truth at each and every breath and keep us steadfast upon it. May Allah make us traverse the methodology of the Salaf, to carry this to the Ulamaa , the inheritors of the Prophets (May Allah preserve them all).

If the Naikiýeen wish to correct me, they can do so. Email the admin to forward it to me.”

              No. 23– Salafis say , Zakir Naik is a fitna  : “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).” Ref : letter  from  to Shaykh Yahya al Hajooree hafidhahullah, as instructed by Shaykh Abu Amr AbdulKareem al Hajooree hafidhahullah when he was in bombay,India (December 2005)]

                         Salafis further say about Zakir Naik,    “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.” Ref : letter  from  to Shaykh Yahya al Hajooree hafidhahullah, as instructed by Shaykh Abu Amr AbdulKareem al Hajooree hafidhahullah when he was in bombay,India (December 2005)]

                         Salafis further say about Zakir Naik,    “ 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”. Ref : letter  from  to Shaykh Yahya al Hajooree hafidhahullah, as instructed by Shaykh Abu Amr AbdulKareem al Hajooree hafidhahullah when he was in bombay,India (December 2005)]

                       Salafis further say about Zakir Naik,    “  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”. Ref : letter  from  to Shaykh Yahya al Hajooree hafidhahullah, as instructed by Shaykh Abu Amr AbdulKareem al Hajooree hafidhahullah when he was in bombay,India (December 2005)]

                              Salafis further say about Zakir Naik,    “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”. Ref : letter  from  to Shaykh Yahya al Hajooree hafidhahullah, as instructed by Shaykh Abu Amr AbdulKareem al Hajooree hafidhahullah when he was in bombay,India (December 2005)]

                         Salafis further say about Zakir Naik,    “  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.” Ref : letter  from  to Shaykh Yahya al Hajooree hafidhahullah, as instructed by Shaykh Abu Amr AbdulKareem al Hajooree hafidhahullah when he was in bombay,India (December 2005)]

                        Salafis further say about Zakir Naik,    “    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.” Ref : letter  from  to Shaykh Yahya al Hajooree hafidhahullah, as instructed by Shaykh Abu Amr AbdulKareem al Hajooree hafidhahullah when he was in bombay,India (December 2005)]

                          Salafis further say about Zakir 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 .” [ Ref : letter  from  to Shaykh Yahya al Hajooree hafidhahullah, as instructed by Shaykh Abu Amr AbdulKareem al Hajooree hafidhahullah when he was in bombay,India (December 2005)]

                        Salafis further say about Zakir Naik,    “   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, “

                                      No. 24– Salafis lambast Zakir Naik for supporting Osama Bin Laden      Zakir Naik says:  quote: “So here the muslims are saying that Usaamah bin Laaden is either wrong.  I reject them!” quote:  “But if you ask my view...  If He (Usaamah bin Laaden) is on the truth..  if he's fighting the enemies of Islam.  I'm for him”.  quote: “If he's terrorising the terrorists... if he's terrorising America the terrorist... the biggest terrorist I am with him”.  quote: “Every Muslim should be terrorist!  The thing is that if he is terrorising the terrorist he is following islam. “

                     Salafi  response: “He said this in front of hundreds if not thousands of Muslims and non-Muslims!!!  Laa hawla wala quwwata illa billaah!”

[ Ref :  Salafitalk.netTopic: Zakir Naik says EVERY Muslim should be a Terrorist ?!!!!????!!!!]

                                                  No. 25– Salafis say , Zakir Naik is a hateful takfiri : “is it not the 'so-called' and 'self-proclaimed' moderates who allow the Zakir Naiks and Hizbut-Tahreers of the world in to their lecture line-ups and conference booths. It just goes to show the true moderate path of Ahlus-Sunnah, those who are the 'true moderates' who scholastically refuted Naik and called the people away from him, yet you will see only after statements like this of Naik's will the Ikhwaanees leave him alone. Just like it took the non-Muslim governments to officially ban scum like hizbut-tahreer, such an open takfeeree hateful group before you see the ihkwaanees act. Ahlus-Sunnah have been warning against them from day one, yet the 'self-proclaimed' moderates cooperate with everyone (except ahlus-sunnah) in the name of unity and moderation, a smoke screen no doubt to gather the numbers (of people) and the numbers of entrance fees ($$$)”.

                             Salafis lament,   “The sad thing is, that the Muslims truly believe they are participating in a moderate, unity-based function when they are actually a pawn in the gathering of sometimes 100's of thousands of dollars/pounds. There is only one thing that they are truly united about, and that's fighting against the moderate path of the salafiyyeen who wish to unite the people upon a single path (the way of the sahaabah), one which might not be laced with riches and fame.” [ Ref :  Salafitalk.netTopic: Zakir Naik says EVERY Muslim should be a Terrorist ?!!!!????!!!!]

                                                       No. 26– Salafis say , Zakir Naik is astray one:  “Walil-laahil Hamd, it is clear that the views of this astray one (Zaki) are founded and mixed with this philosophical logic.  Islaam does not have philosophers-- therefore Zaki speaks in the name of Philosophy and not Islaam.  He is yet another sermoniser amongst ahlul bidah and not from the people of proofs.  

               He has become more established upon opposition to the Book of Allaah (Subhaanah), The Sunnah of Al Mustapha (sallal-laahu-alayhi-wasallam), and The Understanding of the Salafus Saalih.  That is because he persists upon upholding this worthless science of philosophical logic.  However, there are those who claim to be upon the sunnah, but present this philosopher on their websites.  They do not guard their tongues with regards to safeguading the honour of the Salafis and spreading slander and lies.  However, Zaki (the clear open deviant) finds a place in their hearts and their websites.   Allaah is The One Who makes clear the Seraatal Mustaqeem, and we ask Him (subhaanah) for safety from the trial of the deviated ones.” [ Ref : Salafitalk.netTopic: Zakir Naik says EVERY Muslim should be a Terrorist ?!!!!????!!!!]

                                     No. 27– Salafis say , Zakir Naik’s path is destructive :    “According to some of the diseased illegal partisans, the salafis should not refute zaki because he is against hindus and not ahlus sunnah.Indeed, the views of Zaki (Al Munharif) are from that which belittles and distorts the pure religion of Allaah (subhaanah)……………….All praise is due to Allaah, the Mashaayikh of Yemen have already clarified the destructive path of this Munharif (deviated one- Zaki Naik), and the hizbiyyah of some of the heads at Jamiat ahle hadith in their various maraakiz.

                     We ask Allaah by His Greatest Name to preserve the Mashaayikh of Ahlus sunnah and reward them with abundant good in this life and the next. Likewise, we ask Allaah to reward the salafi du-aat, in particular the maintainers of this website in which is presented the manhaj of ahlus sunnah and its Ulema.
 And we ask Him (Subhaanah) by His Greatest Name to guide or destroy the maintainers of the websites filled with ghebah, munkaraat, tamyi, and defence of innovators. Whenever the Mashayikh expose their figure heads and allies amongst the innovators with clear proofs, they do not take naseehah, rather they proceed to slander and lies, and neither the ulema nor the tullaabul ilm and the du-aat have been spared.” [ Ref : Salafitalk.netTopic: Zakir Naik says EVERY Muslim should be a Terrorist ?!!!!????!!!!]

We advise these Muslims, may Allah bless them, to read refutations of the individuals and parties mentioned above and then contemplate - will any Muslim who truely has love for the deen allow misguided sects & individuals like Deobandis, Jamaat-e-Islami, etc. to use his platform?

                No. 30– Salafis say , Zakir Naik’s dawah is ikhwani:   Salafis say, “In the "Peace Conference" that is being organized by Dr. Zakir Naik, there will be Anasheed sung by Zain Bhikha and Abdullah Rolle………………The other screenshot is regarding IRF's ladies wing. What exactly is an 'Islamic' skit? What are 'Islamic' songs?

                    No. 34 , Salafis confess Zakir Naik’s explanation of Surah Baqarah’s Verse No. 7 is horrifying: Question To Zakir Naik , “Assalaamuaalaikum! I am Abdus Sameem, I am a student. In the Quraan it is stated that the hearts of the unbelievers are sealed but according to science it is the brain that thinks and not the heart. Your comments please?”

                Response of Zakir Naik : “The brother posed a question that the Quraan says, the unbelievers hearts have been sealed by Allaah sub’hanahu wa ta’aala , today the science tells us it is the brain that thinks and not the heart and I DO AGREE WITH HIM. So isn’t the Quraan unscientific when it says that the heart has been sealed?  And I do agree, the Quraan says in several places including Surah baqarah chapter 2 Verse number 7 that Allaah has sealed the hearts of the kaafir people. It says that, the seal has been put on their hearts.  If you know the Arabic word its used here is qalb. The Arabic word qalb has got two meanings. One is heart and the other is INTELLIGENCE. If you translate it correctly ( in the English language) it says, Allaah has sealed the intelligence of the unbelievers and its scientifically proven that intelligence has to be sealed NOT THE ORGANIC HEART”

              Salafi Shaykh crushes Zakir Naik : “There was a person who once posed to me a question, brother Zakir I agree with you, qalb means heart as well as intelligence  but one verse in the Quraan says, the hearts are behind the breasts. Then what you have to give answer for that?  And he was quoting a verse from the Quraan, from  Surah Hajj Chapter 22 Verse number 46 which says, that the eyes are not blind, it is the heart which is in their breasts which are blind. So the Quraan says, the eyes are not blind, it is the heart which is within their breast which is blind. The eyes see, heart cannot see, isn’t this verse (also) unscientific? Here the translation has to be heart it cant be intelligence.  

                                     Salafi Shaykh continues crushing Zakir Naik  :   So I (Zakir naik) tell him, I agree that heart has got two translations, but the word used for breast is Sadar, SADAR! Sadar also has got two meanings. One is breast and the other is CENTER. You know how we have (in urdu language) the sadar of an institution, like in Pakistan, in India we have chowk, there they have center, sadar so and so, sadar so and so in Pakistan. Center so and so. Sadar also means center…  So the correct translation ( of the aayah is ) The eyes are not which is blind but it is their INTELLIGENCE which is within their CENTER which is blind.

          See, I started my talk quoting the verse from the Holy Quraan from Surah Ta-Ha Chapter 20 verse number 25 and 28 which says,  [Mûsa (Moses)] said: "O my Lord! Open for me my chest (grant me self-confidence, contentment, and boldness). (Ta-Ha 20:25) O my Lord, Increase my breast for me, this was the dua made my Musa alaihis-salaam when he was asked by Allaah sub’hanahu wa ta’aala, to go and deliver the message to the people.  He ( Musa alaihissalaam) asked Allaah, O my Lord, increase my breast for me. See breast is not the correct translation, what has breast got to do with the Message? It means O my Lord, increase my CENTER for me. [Mûsa (Moses)] said: "O my Lord! Open for me my chest (grant me self-confidence, contentment, and boldness). (Ta-Ha 20:25) And make my task easy for me."And ease my task for me; (Ta-Ha 20:26) And remove the impediment from my speech so that they will understand me. As you know Musa Úáíå ÇáÕáÇÉ æÇáÓáÇãwas a stammerer…..I am asking Allaah Sub’hanahu Wa Ta’aala, O my Lord increase my Center for me,

                     Salafi Shaykh continues crushing Zakir Naik :Therefore scientifically if you analyze the work of Surah Hajj, it says, it is not their eyes which are blind it is the INTELLIGENCE which is within their CENTER which is blind. Because they are not blind! The unbelievers can see, saying they are blind is unscientific, like the Quraan says in Surah Baqarah Chapter 22, Verse number 18 it says, Deaf, dumb, the blind, they will not return to the path … It is not taking about physical deaf people. It is talking about the unbelievers who hearing, they cannot hear , seeing the signs of Allaah don’t accept the Quraan. So Quraan is more scientific , they can see, the eyes are not blind it is their intelligence within their CENTER which is blind.


                                 Salafi Shaykh continues crushing Zakir Naik : Shaykh-ul-Islaam Ahmed Ibn Taymiyyah  Explains The  Position Of Qalb In The Human Being Taken From Majmoo’ al-Fataawa Of Ibn Taymiyyah rahimahullah Volume 9 .Then verily Allaah-The Perfect and Most High-, created the heart for the human being to know and have awareness of various things (around) just as He created the eyes in order to see with them various things. And the ears enabling him to hear with them different things. As He-the Perfect- likewise  has created all the body parts from the parts of his body for a function from the functions , and an action from the actions. So the hand to take hold of things, and legs to pursue, and the tongue for pronunciation(speaking), and the mouth for taste, and the nose to smell, and the skin that feels the touch, and like that the rest of the organs that are external and internal.

                      So if the man utilizes the limb in accordance with what it has been created for and prepared for then this is the right of them ( i.e. The limbs ) has been established. And this is the Justice upon which Allah Established the Heavens and the earth. So this is going to be good and upright for that organ and the owner of it and for all those actions that will be performed with it. Such an upright human being  is the one whose condition is in order. They are on (true) guidance from their Lord, and they are the successful. (Al-Baqarah 2:5) And if this organ is not used for what it has been created for and what its right is, then surely it is useless and hence a great loss, and the owner is an oppressor.  And if he uses in a way which is in opposition to what they have been created for then this is misguidance and destruction. And such a  person is from amongst those who have exchanged the blessing from Allaah with kufr. Then indeed the leader of all the limbs and the head of them is the heart, and therefore it was called qalb..  The Messenger of Allaah     said:          quote: <<There is a mudhghah (piece of flesh) in the body which  if it is sound then the whole body is sound, and if it is corrupt then the whole body becomes corrupt, and it is the heart.>> And the Messenger of Allaah    said : quote:<<Al-Islaam is openness ( pronouncing Shahaadah etc.) and al-Eeman is in the heart. Then he pointed towards his chest and said, Verily the Taqwaa is here, verily! the Taqwaa is here.

                          Salafi Shaykh continues crushing Zakir Naik :And hence the heart was created to be knowedgeable, when the heart turns towards things in order to comprehend them it does that through thinking and contemplating.Just as when the ears turn towards speech (kalaam) in order to hear it does that through listening and being attentive. And the gaze turns towards things around desiring to see things it does that through observation with (the help of) the eyes. So thinking is for the heart, listening is for the ears and similarly  seeing is for the two eyes as has been mentioned before.  If the heart understood and comprehended those things its been contemplating then it has fulfilled its purpose. The ear is likewise when it hears what it has been listening to, and the eye when it sees what it has been looking at. Not every  beholder or thinker has acquired the knowledge (of things) and nor accomplished (it), and also not every onlooker who looks at the hilaal (the crescent moon) can catch sight of it and not everyone who hears a voice can make out its meaning (there is a difference between hearing and listening).  And contrary to that is someone who gets  knowledge about  a matter/ an issue which he did not look into, and he did not previously reflect upon it. Such as the one who suddenly sees the hilaal without intending to see it, or someone who hears a statement without intending to listen to it, this is because the heart does not comprehend knowledge by itself  (i.e. it depends on sight and hearing) and rather it all depends upon certain conditions and capabilities which are dependent upon the efforts the person made in the past desiring and seeking it, or it can be from the Favour (Fadl) of Allaah that it has been conferred upon him.

                         The uprightness of the heart and its (heart’s) right, and the purpose for which it has been created  is to understand and comprehend things not just  having general awareness of things (it observes and ponders about). Someone can know and can possess general awareness of any  thing/ matter/ issue, however he does not understand and comprehend it but on the contrary he is heedless of it and its (true understanding) is annulled.  So the one who understands it is the one who correctly registers it, retains it precisely, comprehends   it and he implants it firmly in his heart. When he needs it he finds it and his action and his speech will match both the external (actions) and internal (niyyah) , and this is the person who has obtained wisdom. Hence soundness of the heart , its right, and that for which it has been created is that it has knowledge of the things, and I don’t say that it just has knowledge only He grants Hikmah to whom He pleases, and he, to whom Hikmah is granted, is indeed granted abundant good. But none remember (will receive admonition) except men of understanding. (Al-Baqarah 2:269) Abud- Dardaa- said: Verily from the people there are those who possess  knowledge and do not have hikmah. Verily Shaddaad ibn Aws is from those who has gained knowledge and hikmah.

                          Salafi Shaykh continues crushing Zakir Naik :And this, despite the fact that mankind are of different levels in comprehending things between perfection and deficiency. And from them those who understand numerous things and those who understand only few. And those who understand just the general important things while those who understand the specific detailed aspects and so on and so forth.        quote: Then these three organs (heart, ears, eyes) are the fundamental organs (of the body)  to acquire  knowledge and comprehend it. I mean here by knowledge that which distinguishes human beings from the animals. And this is not the knowledge of eating, smelling, tasting and feeling. Given that he has this knowledge he differentiates between what he likes and what he dislikes, and distinguish between who is good for him and who is not beneficial for him and so on and so forth. “And Allâh has brought you out from the wombs of your mothers while you know nothing. And He gave you hearing, sight, and hearts that you might give thanks (to Allâh)”. (An-Nahl 16:78) Then He fashioned him in due proportion, and breathed into him the soul (created by Allâh for that person), and He gave you hearing (ears), sight (eyes) and hearts. Little is the thanks you give! (As-Sajdah 32:9) And follow not (O man i.e., say not, or do not or witness not, etc.) that of which you have no knowledge (e.g. one's saying: "I have seen," while in fact he has not seen, or "I have heard," while he has not heard). Verily! The hearing, and the sight, and the heart, of each of those you will be questioned (by Allâh). (Al-Isra 17:36) And indeed We had firmly established them with that wherewith We have not established you (O Quraish)! And We had assigned them the (faculties of) hearing (ears), seeing (eyes), and hearts, but their hearing (ears), seeing (eyes), and their hearts availed them nothing since they used to deny the Ayât (Allâh's Prophets and their Prophethood, proofs, evidences, verses, signs, revelations, etc.) of Allâh, and they were completely encircled by that which they used to mock at! (Al-Ahqaf 46:26 Allâh has set a seal on their hearts and on their hearings, (i.e. they are closed from accepting Allâh's Guidance), and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be a great torment. (Al-Baqarah 2:7)And surely, We have created many of the jinns and mankind for Hell. They have hearts wherewith they understand not, they have eyes wherewith they see not, and they have ears wherewith they hear not (the truth). They are like cattle, nay even more astray; those! They are the heedless ones. (Al-A'raf 7:179)

                         Salafi Shaykh continues crushing Zakir Naik :  Tafseer Of Salaf-us-Saalih Regarding The Sealing Of The Hearts!!! Taken From Tafseer Ibn Katheer. (Allah has set a seal on their hearts and on their hearing, and on their eyes there is a covering. Theirs will be a great torment).  [Surah al-Baqarah Aayah 7]  As-Suddi said that, (Khatama Allah) means, "Allah has sealed.'' Qatadah said that this Ayah means, "Shaytan controlled them when they obeyed him. Therefore, Allah sealed their hearts, hearing and sight, and they could neither see the guidance nor hear, comprehend or understand.''  quote: Ibn Jurayj said that Mujahid said,  (Allah has set a seal on their hearts), "A stamp. It occurs when sin resides in the heart and surrounds it from all sides, and this submersion of the heart in sin constitutes a stamp, meaning a seal.'' Ibn Jurayj also said that the seal is placed on the heart and the hearing.  quote: In addition, Ibn Jurayj said, that `Abdullah bin Kathir narrated that Mujahid said, "The stain is not as bad as the stamp, the stamp is not as bad as the lock which is the worst type.'' quote:Al-A`mash said, "Mujahid demonstrated with his hand while saying, `They used to say that the heart is just like this - meaning the open palm. When the servant commits a sin, a part of the heart will be rolled up - and he rolled up his index finger. When the servant commits another sin, a part of the heart will be rolled up' - and he rolled up another finger, until he rolled up all of his fingers. Then he said, `Then, the heart will be sealed.' Mujahid also said that this is the description of the Ran (refer to 83:14).'' quote: Al-Qurtubi said, "The Ummah has agreed that Allah has described Himself with sealing and closing the hearts of the disbelievers, as a punishment for their disbelief.

                    Similarly, Allah said, (Nay, Allah has set a seal upon their hearts because of their disbelief) (4:155).'' He then mentioned the Hadith about changing the hearts, (in which the Prophet supplicated),(O You Who changes the hearts, make our hearts firm on Your religion.) He also mentioned the Hadith by Hudhayfah recorded in the Sahih, in which the Messenger of Allah said, (The Fitan (trials, tests) are offered to the hearts, just as the straws that are sewn into a woven mat, one after another. Any heart that accepts the Fitan, then a black dot will be engraved on it. Any heart that rejects the Fitan, then a white dot will be engraved on it. The hearts will therefore become two categories: white, just like the barren rock; no Fitnah shall ever harm this category as long as the heavens and earth still exist. Another category is black, just as the cup that is turned upside down, for this heart does not recognize righteousness or renounce evil. ) quote: Ibn Jarir said, "The truth regarding this subject is what the authentic Hadith from the Messenger of Allah stated. Abu Hurayrah narrated that the Messenger of Allah said, (When the believer commits a sin, a black dot will be engraved on his heart. If he repents, refrains and regrets, his heart will be polished again. If he commits more errors, the dots will increase until they cover his heart. This is the Ran (stain) that Allah described,  (Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (stain) which they used to earn)'' (83:14).

               At-Tirmidhi, An-Nasa'i and Ibn Majah recorded this Hadith, and At-Tirmidhi said that it is Hasan Sahih. Reciting the Ayah,  (Allah has set a seal on their hearts and on their hearing), then pausing, then continuing with,  (And on their eyes there is a Ghishawah (covering)) is accurate, for the stamp is placed on the heart and the hearing while the Ghishawah, the covering, is appropriately placed on the eyes. In his Tafsir, As-Suddi said that Ibn `Abbas and Ibn Mas`ud said about Allah's statement, (Allah has set a seal on their hearts and on their hearing), "So that they neither understand nor hear. Allah also said that He placed a covering on their sight, meaning eyes, and so, they do not see.''  Allaah continued saying….  (Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (covering) which they used to earn.) meaning, the matter is not as they claim, nor as they say: "Verily, this Qur'an is tales of the ancients.'' Rather, it is the Word of Allah, His inspiration and His revelation to His Messenger . The only thing that blocked their hearts from believing in it is the dark covering cast over it from the many sins and wrong they committed that has covered up their hearts. Thus, Allah says, (Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (covering) which they used to earn.) This dark covering known as Ran overcomes the hearts of the disbelievers, the covering of Ghaym is for the righteous, and the covering of Ghayn is for those who are near to Allah. Ibn Jarir, At-Tirmidhi, An-Nisa'i, and Ibn Majah all recorded from Abu Hurayrah that the Prophet said, Nay! But on their hearts is the Ran (covering) which they used to earn.) meaning, the matter is not as they claim, nor as they say: "Verily, this Qur'an is tales of the ancients.'' Rather, it is the Word of Allah, His inspiration and His revelation to His Messenger . The only thing that blocked their hearts from believing in it is the dark covering cast over it from the many sins and wrong they committed that has covered up their hearts. Thus, Allah says, ? "What is it that your Lord has sent down'' They say: "Tales of the men of old!'') (16:24)

                   Salafi Shaykh continues crushing Zakir Naik :Relationship Between HEART AND THOUGHTS -Taken From Tafseer Ibn Katheer.Then after the distress, He sent down security for you. Slumber overtook a party of you, while another party was thinking about themselves and thought wrongly of Allah -- the thought of ignorance. They said, "Have we any part in the affair'' Say: "Indeed the affair belongs wholly to Allah.'' They hide within themselves what they dare not reveal to you, saying: "If we had anything to do with the affair, none of us would have been killed here.'' Say: "Even if you had remained in your homes, those for whom death was decreed would certainly have gone forth to the place of their death,'' but that Allah might test what is in your breasts; and to purify that which was in your hearts (sins), and Allah is All-Knower of what is in the breasts.

                   The second group mentioned in the Ayah were the hypocrites who only thought about themselves, for they are the most cowardly people and those least likely to support the truth, (and thought wrongly of Allah - the thought of ignorance) ﴿3:154, for they are liars and people who have doubts and evil thoughts about Allah, the Exalted and Most Honored. Allah said, (Then after the distress, He sent down security for you. Slumber overtook a party of you), the people of faith, certainty, firmness and reliance (on Allah) who are certain that Allah shall give victory to His Messenger and fulfill his objective.  (While another party was thinking about themselves), and they were not overcome by slumber because of their worry, fright and fear, (and thought wrongly of Allah --- the thought of ignorance). Similarly, Allah said in another statement, (Nay, but you thought that the Messenger and the believers would never return to their families) ﴿48:12 This group thought that the idolators achieved ultimate victory, when their forces took the upper hand in battle, and that Islam and its people would perish. This is typical of people of doubt and hesitation, in the event of a hardship, they fall into such evil thoughts. Allah then described them that, (they said) in this situation,  ("Have we any part in the affair'') Allah replied, (Say: "Indeed the affair belongs wholly to Allah.'' They hide within themselves what they dare not reveal to you.) Allah exposed their secrets, that is, (saying: "If we had anything to do with the affair, none of us would have been killed here.'') although they tried to conceal this thought from the Messenger of Allah . Ibn Ishaq recorded that `Abdullah bin Az-Zubayr said that Az-Zubayr said, "I was with the Messenger of Allah when fear intensified and Allah sent sleep to us (during the battle of Uhud). At that time, every man among us (except the hypocrites) was nodding off. By Allah! As if in a dream, I heard the words of Mu`attib bin Qushayr, `If we had anything to do with the affair, none of us would have been killed here.' I memorized these words of his, which Allah mentioned later on, (saying: "If we had anything to do with the affair, none of us would have been killed here.)''Ibn Abi Hatim collected this Hadith.  Allah the Exalted said, (Say: "Even if you had remained in your homes, those for whom death was decreed would certainly have gone forth to the place of their death,'') meaning, this is Allah's appointed destiny and a decision that will certainly come to pass, and there is no escaping it. Allah's statement, (that Allah might test what is in your breasts; and to purify that which was in your hearts,) means, so that He tests you with whatever befell you, to distinguish good from evil and the deeds and statements of the believers from those of the hypocrites, (and Allah is All-Knower of what is in the breasts), and what the hearts conceal.

                 No.35 , Salafis confess Zakir Naik is ignorant: Salafis write, “ A question is posed to Zakir Naik concerning the Hur - which is a matter of Unseen, al-Ghayb.  Zakir Naik Responds... “The Sister has asked a question, that when a man enters a paradise he will get a hur that is a beautiful maiden then what will a woman get when she enters paradise. The Quran, has mentioned the word Hur, in no less than four different places.Its mentioned in Surah Dukhan, Chapter 44 verse number 54, its mentioned in Surah Tur, chapter number 52 verse number 20, its mentioned in Surah Rahman chapter 55 verse number 72 aswell as Surah Wa'qiah Chapter 46 verse number 22 [Note:- Surah Wa'qiah is numbered 56 and not 46(Surah Ahqaf)! He is so unreliable on his numbers then what about his fatawas!]. And many of the translations especially the urdu translations, have translated the word Hur as beautiful maiden! If the word Hur means a beautiful maiden, then what will the woman get in the paradise. Actually the word Hur is a plural for ahwaar - which is applicable to the man and hawar - which is applicable to the woman and it signifies the characterestic of hawar which means big, white, beautiful eye and describes especially the whiteness of the eye. The similar thing is mentioned, azwajun muthahharin...many places in the Quran; in Surah Baqarah Chapter number 2 verse number 25 and Surah Nisa Chapter number 4 verse number 57 which says azwajun muthahharathun which means companion, friend. So the word Hur is rightly translated by Muhammad Asad as spouse and also by Abdullah Yousuf Alee as companion. So Hur actually means a companion or a spouse. It has no gender. Further a man will get a good lady with big beautiful eyes and for a woman she will get a good man with big beautiful eyes..Hope that answers the question.........[claps from general people –]”

            Salafi reply to Zakir Naik on Hur issue: “Narrated 'Abdullah bin Amr: I heard the Prophet (Sallallahu alaihi wa sallam) saying,  "Allah will not deprive you of knowledge after he has given it to you, but it will be taken away through the death of religious learned men with their knowledge. Then there will remain ignorant people who, when consulted, will give verdicts according to their opinions whereby they will mislead others and will go astray."  [The Saheeh of Imam Bukharee (rahimahullah) English translation: Volume 9, Chapter 96, HOLDING FAST TO THE QUR'AN AND THE SUNNAH, page 252,  Hadeeth # 7307]. ]

                Salafis continue : “Fatwa Of Shaikh Muhammad Ibn Salih al-Uthaimeen (rahimahullah) On The Same Question Q.58. It has been mentioned that men will have Al-Hur Al-'Ain[1] in Paradise. What will there be for women?

                 Response Of Shaikh Ibn 'Uthaimeen (rahimahullah) - Allah, the Most Blessed, the Most High says, regarding the blessings of Paradise:  " ..Therein you shall have (all) that your inner-selves desire, and  therein you shall have (all) for which you ask for. An entertainment from  (Allâh), the Oft-Forgiving, Most Merciful." (Surah Fussilat 41:31-32)  And He, the Most High says:  "..And therein all that inner-selves could desire, and all that eyes  could delight in and you will abide therein forever." (Surah Az-Zukhruf 43:71)  And it is well known that marriage is one of the things which the souls desire most, and so it will be found in Paradise for the people of Paradise, whether they be men or women. So, Allah, the Most Blessed, the Most High will marry the woman in Paradise to the man who was her husband in the life of this world, as He, the Most Blessed, the Most High says:  "Our Lord! And make them enter the 'Adn (Eden) Paradise (everlasting Gardens) which you have promised them - and to the righteous among their  fathers, their wives, and their offspring! Verily, You are the All Mighty, the All-Wise." (Surah Ghafir 40:8)

If she did not marry in the life of this world, then Allah, the Most High will marry her to one who pleases her in Paradise.

[ Ref: Topic: Zakir Naik - Al-Hur Al-A'in And Aqeedah Of Ahl-us-Sunnah Wal-Jam'aah]

                          No.36 , Salafis confess Zakir Naik imitates Kuffar in Wearing Suit and neck TIEd & glorifies Mushrikin Gods : Salafis write , “Shaikh al-Albaanee (rahimahullah) said: ....It was decreed for me to travel to Britain for the sake of dawah to get in touch with the islamic organizations there I was directed to a da'ee (a caller to Islam)in a town 120 kms from London. The person we went on to see was a muslim man from the jamaah of Shaikh Maudoodee (rahimahullah) ; so that day was during the month of Ramadhan so the time for breaking the fast came so we sat down with him to break our fast..... (unclear)... and I see that he was combining two .....(unclear).......and he didnt have a beard ; this is something which we rarely see in the lands of the islam let alone in the lands of the kufr and transgression but in addition to that he was wearing a neck tie  so I pointed out to that this is not allowed for muslims as this is an act of imitating the kuffar and I mentioned to him some of the hadeeths in this regard "......Whoever imitates a people is one of them." And that shows this friend of ours is a good man. Like the man who asked the most knowledgeable man on the land to direct him to repentance as soon as the scholar said to him, verily you are in a land of evil people, he quickly went on to the land of pious people and in the same manner this man corresponded with me immediately and hence untied the neck tie and threw it on the ground....but soon this was followed by sadness as he tried to justify his action of wearing the NECK TIE by saying, that the British people view the palestinians in a way and that made him ....... The testimony of this  story is that this good man who corresponded by the Sunnah immediately was affected by living in that British environment therefore he justified the wearing of the tie and his imitation of the kuffar just (so that) he wont be made equal to those muslims; you see! So in that case there lies a baan in imitating between the imitator and the imitating. And the association and intermingling without a doubt confirms this baan either in a given manner as this case was or in an obvious manner. And this is why we advise our brothers upon whom a time has come who twist the meaning of 'HIJRAH' and call AMERICA MEHJER.. meaning a place where hijrah is made to. This is the reality because I told you hijrah if from the land of muslims to the land of Kuffar..............]

Listen to this beautiful tape at
titled Rulings for Residing in the Lands of the Kuffaar.

                             Salafis further writes :   “So Zakir Naik, not only imitates the kuffar all the time during his lectures wearing a Suit, neck-tie but also has gone to the extent of calling Allah   Sub'hanahu wa ta'ala with names which the hindu mushrikeen call their gods. And he legislates this in his lectures that are openly distributed and majority of people listening to this filth are Muslims who are ignorant about their deen. And the saddest part being that the likes of Jamiyyah Ahle Hadees Hind not only call him as a chief guest (along with his wife) but also print his photographs in their adverts. Ahle Hadees Youth Association (AHYA) is the front runner in spearheading its distribution of course for their own popularity. And not but the least, his fanatic followers in Bangalore, Mysore and Chennai. I pray to Allah that he brings them to the path of the Salaf, gathering around scholars and learning from them and making taubah from spending lakhs of rupees in arranging programmes for this man and his likes, distributing his tapes and videos!!

                        Thus wasting the wealth of the muslims. By Allah, fear the fire! Allah will question you about your wealth where you spent it? Those who have supported this then let them make taubah to Allah and sincerely repent to Him for promoting ILHAAD. And learn the Beautiful Names of Allah and its meanings from atleast the books and tapes of the trustworthy Ulamaa and spend your wealth and make your efforts in spreading this and not against this.” [Ref: salafitalk.netTopic: Zakir Naik - Hindu Mushrikeen And Aqeedah Of Ahl-us-Sunnah Wal Jam'aah --]

                             No. 37 , Salafis  says,  Zakir Naik glorifies Mushrikin Gods :  Salafis write, “Zakir Naik says: "It is mentioned in Rig Ved (One of the religious books of hindus) Sages call One God by many names that means there are various names given to this One God. And Rig Ved alone gives no less than 33 different attributes of Almighty God most of which are mentioned in Rig Ved, Book no. 2, Hymn no. 1. And One of the beautiful attribute which is mentioned in Rig Ved of Almighty God is Brahma..... Brahma means 'The Creator' . If you translate into Arabic it means Khaliq WE MUSLIMS HAVE GOT NO OBJECTION IF ANYONE CALLS ALMIGHTY GOD ALLAH SUB'HANAHUWA TA'ALA AS "KHALIQ" OR "CREATOR" OR "BRAHMA". But if someone says "Brahma", is Almighty God, who has got four heads, on each head is a crown and  he has got four arms we muslims take a strong objection to it............... Another beautiful attribute which is given in Rig Ved, Book no. 2, Hymn no. 1 Verse no. 3, is Vishnu. Vishnu means "The Sustainer". If you translate into Arabic it means 'Rab'. WE MUSLIMS HAVE GOT NO OBJECTION IF ANYONE  CALLS ALMIGHTY GOD AS RAB OR CHERISHER SUSTAINER OR VISHNU. But if someone calls Vishnu, is Almighty God, who has four hands and one of his hands holds a chakra(disc).... and one of his left hands holds the..(unclear)... and he is riding on a bird, by reclining on a couch of snake we muslims take a strong objection to it...............”

                    Salafis crushes Zakir naik saying , “Our daýwah and our ýaqeedah is more beloved to us than our own selves, our wealth and our offspring.  So we are not prepared to part with it for gold, nor silver.  We say this so that no one may have hope in buying out our daýwah, nor should he think that  it is possible for him to purchase it from us for deenaar or dirham. Since the politicians already know this about us, so they have despaired of buying it from us with granted positions or wealth..Shaikh, the Allamah, Muqbil ibn Hadee Al Waa'di'ee (Rahimahullah).

[Ref: salafitalk.netTopic: Zakir Naik - Hindu Mushrikeen And Aqeedah Of Ahl-us-Sunnah Wal Jam'aah --]

        No. 38, Salafis hints that Zakir Naik is a disbeliever : Salafis write, “ Zakir Naik says: ‘…..fifty volumes in medicine, written by Alee ibn Seena, knows as Avi Seena, he doesn’t sound a muslim! Alee ibn Seena, a Muslim, Avee Seena – non-Muslim, who got the title ‘Aristotle of the east’ , he wrote the book ‘Kaanoon’ which was referred as textbook of medicine in as late as 17th century…….’

                  Salafis react : “So who was Ibn Seena? Was he from amongst the Scholars of Ahl-is-Sunnah Or from the leaders of misguidance? ………..Shaikh Abdul-Azeez Ar-Raajihee On Those Who Dont Declare The Likes Of Ibn Seena To Be Kaafir!!  Question: With respect to the rule on Takfeer, whoever does not hold the polytheists to be disbelievers, such as Ibn Sinaa (Avicenna), a person comes along and says: “I do not hold Ibn Seenaa to be a disbeliever, he is a Muslim to me.” Does this person commit disbelief?

                      Answer: If he is confused about him and is not aware of his condition, he does not commit disbelief until his (Ibn Seenaa’s) affair is first made clear to him. However, the one who knows that he is a disbeliever and that he is a heretic but yet does not deem him to be a disbeliever, this person falls under this Nullifier of Islaam. But this matter has not been made clear to some people, so the one who is not aware of his condition, his affair should be clarified to him.

              Question: [Continuing] But if he rejects and says: “I am not required to do this.” Answer: He is required to do this. This means that he has fallen into one of these Nullifiers of Islaam: “Whoever does not consider the polytheists to be disbelievers, or has doubts about their disbelief or considers their ways and beliefs to be correct, then he has committed disbelief.” You are required to hold the polytheists as disbelievers, make enmity with them and  hates them for the sake of Allaah. Allaah has made this required upon you. Allaah has made Tawheed a requirement upon you. And there is no Tawheed unless one holds the polytheists to be disbelievers. Whoever does not hold the polytheists to be disbelievers or has doubts about their disbelief or holds their ways and beliefs to be correct, this person is a disbeliever just like them, because he does not reject the Taaghoot. Whoever does not disbelieve and reject the Taaghoot does not believe in Allaah.

             His Faith in Allaah and Tawheed is not correct unless there are two things:

                          (1) Rejecting the false deities/religions, and
                           (2) Having faith in Allaah. Rejecting the false deities/religion (Taaghoot) is what Allaah began with first in Laa Ilaaha IllaaAllaah [There is no deity worthy of worship except Allaah]. Laa Ilaaha [There is no deity worthy of worship] is a rejection of the false deities/religions.

                      No. 39, Salafis say,  Zakir Naik is a  Mu'tazilahSalafis  write, “The readers have already seen how Zakir Naik has given Allaah names such as Brahma and Vishnu and legislated that Allaah can be invoked by these names. For details please refer to the following post:  Also please refer to the link in the beginning of the post to see Zakir Naik's aqeedah that Allaah has produced the Qur'aan which is the very belief of Jahmiyyah and Mu'tazilah.  Now the readers shall get more acquaintance about Zakir Naik's Aqeedah. Here Zakir Naik claims the Aayaath of the Qur'aan are same as those present in the Hindu Veds. And Insha Allaah I will list the details and readers can make their own judgement...barakAllaahu Feekum!” [Ref:]

                                   No. 40, Salafis say,  Zakir Naik’s admirers have sold their Deen:   Salafis write, “ O Muslim Ummah! who are you going to trust? Will you trust Zakir Naik or will you trust the Messenger of Allaah Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam? Indeed our noble Messenger Sallallahu Alaihi Wa Sallam informed us in  truth and the Muhadditheen have conveyed to us the truth, generation by generation. Those who uphold this deen are none but the people of hadeeth. And the people of hadeeth are not those who promote such beliefs, but the Ulamaa of Ahl-us-Sunnah wal Jamaah, well known and not those who sell their deen for a cheap price for cheap publicity and donations from Zakir Naik...” [Ref: Topic: Zakir Naik – Al-Qur’aan And Aqeedah Of Ahl-us-Sunnah Wal Jama'aah]
