Beware of the Kafir-manufacturing factories: Maulana Nadeem-ul-Wajidi responds to the Fatawahs of Kufr against Dr. Zakir Naik
1/21/2012 7:01:18 AM WQ

Maulana Nadim Ul Wajidi and other Barelwi or Debandi Mushids have no doubt spent most of their lives studying Fiqh and Sunnah and are VERY LEARNED in thier fields  but NOT ONE, not a SINGLE ONE has come out boldly to stand on an international platform to present Islam as it truly is, WITH CORRECT references and NO PERSONAL innovations.  Do you know how many thosands or millions of INTERNATIONAL ( including non Muslim) audience Dr Zakir has ? He has virtually lifted the veil from non- Muslims eyes and they all see Islam in all it's beauty and grandeur,  which NONE of our great learned people have done. These so called Fatwas have no meaning and no basis. They are just meant to polish ones' own ego into saying that " I know more than Dr Zakir..." . May Allah Subhanau grant His divine protection to Dr Zakir and increase his life to let him continue his exemplary work.


8/6/2011 7:49:06 AM Alhaj Dr.Israr Ahmad Qureshi

Fatawa is the openion of an individual, it is not the decision of an authority.

Several so called Muftis are issuing such Fatawa, for the reasons best known to them.

We must not pay attention to such Muftis.

4/24/2011 8:54:11 AM shahid iqbal

There are a series of the fatwas of kufr against Dr.Zakir Naik. But there is no fatwa against someone like Sultan Shahin who favours " Indian Ulema have no time to lose, must call warlike Quranic surahs obsolete." So in the eyes of Sultan Shahin parts of the Quran are irrelevant and obsolete. It is the act as similar as yazid followed by disregarding Quranic teachings. M.J. Akbar is also of same creed.

What do you (opponents of Zakir Naik) say, the so-called champions of quran-o-sunnat about this?

Aamir Mughal

Dear Sultan Sahab,

For kind perusal

Calamity of Declaring Apostate [Yaani Fitnah-e-Takfir]: Hazrat Ali [May Allah be pleased with him] had fought against such Anarchists [Khawarij] in the Battle of Neherwan.

The Takfiris make unlicensed Takfeer of Governments and scholars and call the common-folk to bloody revolution as a way to remove such governments and establish Islaamic Law.

1- Al-Khawaarij

2- Characteristics of Al-Khawaarij

3- Khawarij Renewed Indeology.



Zakir Naik has the following beliefs:

1. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is Dead and it's "Haraam" for Muslims to treat him as a "Wasila" for asking for favours from God. 

2. It is Biddat (Innovation) for Muslims to perform "Quran-Khwaani" for "Eisale-Sawab" of the dead ones.

3. Imam Husain's jihad aganinst Yazid at Karbala was a political war and not a battle of "HAQ" against "BATIL".

4. Yazid is a Jannati and "May Allah be pleased with him"

5. "Every Muslim should be a Terrorist".

Naik openly supports Osama Bin Laden in his lectures. 

In light of his above beliefs what else would one call Zakir Naik other than a KAFIR or a MUNAFIQ or a YAZIDI?


Zia Haider

What a criteria 


I am not surprised to read the above mentioned article by Maulana Nadeem ul Wajid.  I have strong exception to the attitude he had mention and especially his stout defence of Zakir Naik.  Our objection to Zakir Naik is not on the individual but the stream of thought which I say as dangerous emanating from this man.


I agree with the article that Mr Rizvi wrote titled Unveiling Zakir Naik wherein he says that he used his memory to mesmerize the audience many of whom include people who do not have any understanding on the Holy Quran.  Most of his  talks/debates are stage managed.


Maulana Nadeem, if people start believing in what you say that let God alone judge Yazeed then you tend to justify all criminal act committed  by this monstrous Syrian ruler at the battle of Harrah and later the desecration of the Holy Kaabah..  If Maulana Najmul hold the same opinion then what to say about Shimr bin Duljowshan, Omar ibn Saad and others who committed the most heinous crime at the battle of Kerbala.  A wrong is wrong and cannot be right if done by Muslim.


t is this thought process that has to be fought.  If Zakir Naik justifies terrorism and say all Muslim should be terrorist, it has to be fought.  If Zakir Naik says Osama is good and that he supports him if he is terrorising US, it must be fought.  Terrorism in any form cannot be justified be it Osama or his support by Zakir Naik.


Maulana, you see the hate campaigners in the Peace TV which is run by Zakir Naik.  You have Ahmad Deedat whose Combat kit against the Christians stir the entire community and called for his deportation.   His personal grudge against the Christian cannot be scarified at the altar of Islam. Dialogue as one article said should be between civilisation and Clash of civilisation.


Then Zakir Naik  has the most perfidious Israr Ahmad of Pakistan in his commentator list whose remark on Hazrat Ali angered the whole Muslim ummah.  If at all Zakir Naik excel is his hate campaigns.


What goodness are you talking about this characterless man?  Why has he not spoken against his ideological masters the Saudi government who continues to remain the slave of Americans?  The Saud family are  best the slave of the capitalist US regime and wag their tail whenever Bush calls from Washington.  Why Zakir Naik who supports Osama has never uttered a word against the ill gotten Saudi family.


These are the issues Maulana Najmul which makes Zakir Naik the most hated figure in the Islamic world.  He will not say anything against the Saudi regime but will says it is haram to believe in Prophet Muhammad (SAW) (Rasullah SAW ko manna bhi haram hai Jo shaks mar gaya ho is exactly the word he uses)


It is these obnoxious sign that must be read,  as Saudi regime is removing all traces of Islamic history be demolishing all aspect related to Islam and our Prophet, Zakir Naik wants to replace Islam with the Saudi regime.

What else can any one call him Kafir or Munafiq


Aamir Mughal

These are the issues Maulana Najmul which makes Zakir Naik the most hated figure in the Islamic world.  He will not say anything against the Saudi regime but will says it is haram to believe in Prophet Muhammad (SAW) (Rasullah SAW ko manna bhi haram hai Jo shaks mar gaya ho is exactly the word he uses) [Zia Haider]

1. Prophet Muhammad (SAW) is Dead and it's "Haraam" for Muslims to treat him as a "Wasila" for asking for favours from God. [Parvez Karari]


Dear Sirs,

Quran also says that Prophet Mohammad [PBUH] was a Human [But Blessed amongst Human - Afzalul Bashar but he [PBUH] was a Human and Human being usually die.

If Mohammad [PBUH] is alive then what these Quranic Verses are doing in Quran [these should be discarded forthwith]
We appointed immortality for no mortal before thee. What! if thou diest, can they be immortal! Every soul must taste of death, and We try you with evil and with good, for ordeal. And unto Us ye will be returned. [AL-ANBIYA (THE PROPHETS) Chapter 21 - Verse 34 and 35]
We sent not before thee (any messengers) save men whom We inspired from among the folk of the townships - Have they not travelled in the land and seen the nature of the consequence for those who were before them? And verily the abode of the Hereafter, for those who ward off (evil), is best. Have ye then no sense? – [YUSUF (JOSEPH) Chapter 12 Verse 109]
Their messengers said: Can there be doubt concerning Allah, the Creator of the heavens and the earth? He calleth you that He may forgive you your sins and reprieve you unto an appointed term. They said: Ye are but mortals like us, who would fain turn us away from what our fathers used to worship. Then bring some clear warrant. Their messengers said unto them: We are but mortals like you, but Allah giveth grace unto whom He will of His slaves. It is not ours to bring you a warrant unless by the permission of Allah. In Allah let believers put their trust! [IBRAHIM (ABRAHAM) Chapter 14 Verse 10 and 11]
Say: I am only a mortal like you. My Lord inspireth in me that your Allah is only One Allah. And whoever hopeth for the meeting with his Lord, let him do righteous work, and make none sharer of the worship due unto his Lord. [AL-KAHF (THE CAVE) Chapter 18 Verse 110]
Lo! thou wilt die, and lo! they will die; [AZ-ZUMAR (THE TROOPS, THRONGS)Chapter 39 - Verse 30]

Mr. Aamir Mughal,

Do you ever have anything original and of your own to say other than copying and pasting from elsewhere, which may sometimes be from your own articles or blog. Do you realise how irritating it is? Nobody has the time to read your longish posts. Learn to be brief, direct and clear while commenting instead of always being vague.

It's completely unethical on your part to start commenting on the comments without even refrerring to the artice and making your own stand clear on Zakir Naik who is the subject of the article. You are expected to exhibit a bit of discipline, my dear friend!


A.M.Jamsheed Basha, Chennai, India

The lunacy of Muftees of Deoband and Barelvi : Are they justified in issuing a fatwa decalaring Dr. Zakir Naik as "Kafir"?

Of late, it has become a fashion for these muftees of Deoband and Barelvees to decalare anybody "kafir" at the drop of a hat,  if any thing said or done by such individuals running contrary to their set of belief. Moulana Nadeemul Wajid has rightly said that if Dr. Zakir Naik is guilty of supporting Osama and his form of terrorism, law would have already taken action against him and his Peace TV. Does anybody think that CIA or Indian IB would not have recommended action against such an individual particularly when the subject of terrorism has taken a centre stage? Before declaring him or accusing him, one must make sure about the autheticity of such statements. Here again let the law take its own course.

But then any difference in the matter of interpretation of Quran or spiritual belief or fiqh or shariah and if Zakir Naik has said anything new or contrary to the established belief and practices, the civilised way is to counter his arguments with supportive quotes from authetic books and other related documents from Islamic history. In the past several learned scholars of Islam have declared that it is not within our right to declare a Muslim, a "kafir" in the matter of interpretation of Islamic Laws or Divine direction. Best option for the Muftees to come out with their version of interpretation, which is still a mater of debate, and prove him wrong quoting from authentic books of references.  I am still unable to reconcile to the fact that the learned Muftees of Deoband and Barelvees could be so hypersensitive to declare a scholar of Islam as "kafir".

I still hold the view that every individual has a right to hold certain views about Islam and interpret the Islamic laws and no Mufti has a right to curtail his freedom of expression. There may be views that may run contrary to one's belief or set of rituals but then what one can do except regretting such individuals.

Did anybody succeed in preventing Ghulam Ahmed Khadiana from saying he was the last Prophet? He has his own followings all over the world. Similarly, the Shiite have a firm belief in Tahrif and interpreted Quran in their own way.  Also held a more dangerous view and alleged that the present Quran was corrupted or altered by the Sahabis and that they deleted 10 Suras relating to Ahly Bay'at etc. Not resting with that, they also still hold the view that the original Quran had been neatly taken away by their 4 year old 12th Imam and went into hiding in the high mountains to reappear on the dooms day? What one would do with that Quran which would come, when the whole world would have crumbled? Still more, they have changed the Kalima, held the three great rightly guided Caliphs of Islam usurpurs of power, believe in Imamat as the continuation of prophethood etc., and Ali was their first Imam. Theyh seek help from Ali than Allah, when they say, "Ya Ali Madadi". It is an extreme belief alien to Islam. To them no other Sahabi Rasool PBUH was greater than Ali and family. They curse the rightly guided three Caliphs and the other wives of the Prophet PBUH, even though they form part and parcel of Ahle Bayet. These and more are the dogmatic beliefs of the Shiites running contrary to the basic tenets of Islam. What is the opinion of the Muftis of Deoband and Barelvi regarding the Shiite religion? Are they prepared to issue a fatwa declaring them as non-Muslim like in the case of Khadianas? Because they are more dangerous pronounciation about Islam than what was said by Dr. Zakir Naik?


Zia Haider



If you thinks Prophet (SAW) is dead then why the kalima says

There is no god except Allah and Muhammad  is his messenger

Everything is conveyed in present tense.  You have to have the faith to understand our Prophet (SAW) and with a close mind you will always destroy every history that was associated with him. Do read a mail in this site by one Mr Haq and even go to the extent of what that crazy man says

For your knowledge Quran also says


Think not of those who are slain in Allah's way as dead. Nay, they live, finding their sustenance in the presence of their Lord; They rejoice in the bounty provided by Allah. And with regard to those left behind, who have not yet joined them (in their bliss), the (martyrs) glory in the fact that on them is no fear, nor have they (cause to) grieve. Qur'an2:214

I  fully endorse thise fatwas against Zakir Naik because of these utterances and I said earlier that man never had the courage of attacking Saudi regime , the slaves of Americans.  I also read a post on the way Saudi regime are misapproprating the welath of the country as if it is their personal assets.  How come Naik justifies the nstitution of monarchy which  seperate sharia laws for the saudi family.
