Internationally renowned scholar on Islam and Comparative Religion Dr. Zakir Naik urged the Ummah at large to unite as the schism with differences of opinions will only damage the very spirit and pristine purity of the great religion of Islam.Addressing a huge gathering at a public talk organized by Indian Islamic institution Dar-ul-Uloom Nadwat-ul-Ulema’s Old Boys Association in Riyadh on Friday, Naik, who heads Mumbai-based Islamic Research Foundation (IRF), said: “The Almighty bestowed upon us the title of Khair Al-Ummah — the best of communities.

Volume 4, Book 55, Number 543 : Narrated by Abu Huraira The Prophet said, "Allah created Adam, making him 60 cubits tall. When He created him, He said to him, "Go and greet that group of angels, and listen to their reply, for it will be your greeting (salutation) and the greeting (salutations of your offspring." So, Adam said (to the angels), As-Salamu Alaikum (i.e. Peace be upon you). The angels said, "As-salamu Alaika wa Rahmatu-l-lahi" (i.e. Peace and Allah's Mercy be upon you). Thus the angels added to Adam's salutation the expression, 'Wa Rahmatu-l-lahi,' Any person who will enter Paradise will resemble Adam (in appearance and figure). People have been decreasing in stature since Adam's creation.

Alhamdulillah for the successful end of the Dr. Zakir Naik tour to NIGERIA. The closing of the event was even more fantastic than the beginning. In summary, 1. The atmosphere within and outside the hall was splendid 2. The lectures were on point 3. All questions thrown at Dr. Zakir Naik especially from the non Muslims were convincingly answered 4. We should be expecting a strictly Islamic Mobile phone from Islamic Research Foundation, which Dr. Zakir Naik heads. The smart phone will be named Peace mobile. It will contain several well scrutinized islamic apps, authentic Hadith, peace Tv app etcand up to 80Gb capacity, at the cost of just 200USD. 5. The most important moment came when 2 non Muslims reverted to Islam after asking several questions but later succumbed to the truth. Also a confused Muslim also came forward to express her regret over diverting in faith and being unable to practice Islam accordingly. Immediately she was assigned to the Amir of the organizers of the program to assist her.

For a Hindu to believe in Hinduism does not matter. It enhances his sense of superiority by the reason of this consciousness that there are millions of Untouchables (or Scheduled Castes) below him. But what does it mean for an Untouchable to say that he believes in Hinduism? It means that he accepts that he is an Untouchable and that he is an Untouchable is the result of Divine dispensation. For Hinduism is divine dispensation. An Untouchable may not cut the throat of a Hindu. But he cannot be expected to give an admission that he is an Untouchable and rightly so. Which Untouchable is there with soul so dead as to give such an admission by adhering to Hinduism. That Hinduism is inconsistent with the self-respect and honour of the Untouchables is the strongest ground which justifies the conversion of the Untouchables to another and nobler faith. - Dr BR Ambedkar

Dr Zakir Naik's Fraud Exposed in Misusing Vedic Texts A lot of people have by now heard of Dr. Zakir Naik, and how he is working to convince as many people as possible by his arguments, or his use of his translations of Vedic texts, to become Muslims. And those who are not educated in their own culture, such as simple minded Hindus who have not really studied their own texts, become enamored by what he says. However, those who knowledgeable of those Vedic texts that Naik seems to use so well, they become frustrated that so many people take his mistranslations seriously. And that is what they are, they are often ridiculous mistranslations of Vedic texts used in a way to say Allah or Mohammed was predicted in the Vedic literature, or worse, that Kalki is actually Mohammed, so all Hindus should give up their faith and simply become Muslims. But you have to be educated to discern his frequent untruths to perceive how cunning he is and also how stupid he is in the way he misuses the Vedic texts to trick Hindu ...

Islam is not the name of some unique religion presented for the first time by Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) who should, on that account be called the founder of Islam. The Qur'an states that Islam - the complete submission of man before his one and only Unique Creator - is the one and only faith and way of life consistently revealed by God to humankind from the very beginning. Noah, Solomon, David, Abraham, Moses, Isaac and Jesus - prophets who appeared at different times and places - all propagated the same faith and conveyed the same message of Tawheed (Oneness of God), Risaalat (Prophethood) and Aakhirah (the Hereafter). These prophets of God were not founders of different religions to be named after them. They were each reiterating the message and faith of their predecessors. However, Muhammad (pbuh) was the last Prophet of God. God revived through him the same genuine faith which had been conveyed by all His Prophets. This original message was earlier corrupted and split into various religions by people of ...

I've come to the conclusion as mean as it may seem, the religious/superstitious mind is a dull one. As soon as I find out someone believes in nonsense that it NOT backed by reality/evidence, I instantly lose some respect for them. It's very difficult to respect someone that honestly believes in superstitious nonsense regardless of how real it is in their mind. Yes I'm aware that makes me seem close minded and bigoted. It also makes me honest to myself and reality which is far more important than what you'd think of me. Have a great day!
For all of you that scream you want god back in schools look up this story from Greece. There the church and government are not separate. A man there faces two years in prison for blasphemy. We must keep god out of our government and our laws or we will follow states like Iran, Greece, and many other states where religion makes laws. You can love god all you want, but keep your god to yourself. I live in a free country, where you can say what you want and not be charged with blasphemy. It's time to stand for freedom of speech in this country, sad but true. The religious of this country want to shove god down everyone's throats. In Oklahoma they passed laws stopping Muslim laws but left it open to Christian laws. So someday in Oklahoma you may wake up and find a cop at your door arresting you for crimes against god. Blasphemy, working on Sunday, celebrating a birthday, or even not attending mass. Separation of church and state is not just a good idea it is a MUST!!!
VAST DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ISLAM AND THE ACTUAL PRACTICE OF MUSLIMS Question: If Islam is the best religion, why are many of the Muslims dishonest, unreliable, and involved in activities such as cheating, bribing, dealing in drugs, etc.?

ALL RELIGIONS TEACH PEOPLE TO BE RIGHTEOUS, THEN WHY FOLLOW ONLY ISLAM? Question All religions basically teach followers to do good deeds. Why should a person only follow Islam? Can he not follow any of the religions? Answer 1. Major difference between Islam and most other religions All religions basically exhort mankind to be righteous and eschew evil. But Islam goes beyond that. It guides us towards practical ways of achieving righteousness and eliminating evil from our individual and collective lives. Islam takes into account human nature and the complexities of human society. Islam is guidance from the Creator Himself. Therefore, Islam is also called the Deenul- Fitrah (the natural religion of Man).
