Brother Zakir Naik
In the name of Allah, We praise Him, seek His help and ask for His forgiveness. Whoever Allah guides none can misguide, and whoever He allows to fall astray, none can guide them aright. We bear witness that there is no one (no idol, no person, no grave, no prophet, no imam, no dai, nobody!) worthy of worship but Allah Alone, and we bear witness that Muhammad(saws) is His slave-servant and the seal of His Messengers.
The Truth of the matter is that everyone who and where truly serves the Cause of Allah Subhanah has one and the same mission: to propagate the Truth of Al-Islam to whoever is willing to listen to good caution from the Quran and Sunnah, and earn the Pleasure and Good-Will of the Merciful Lord. All the brothers and sisters who are dedicated to this noble cause of Allah Subhanah are working towards the one same mission: to earn the Pleasure of our Merciful and Forgiving Lord of the Worlds.
And when the Mission of earning the Pleasure of the Merciful Lord is so noble and so great in its essence, it matters very little to us whether we are counted as their team members, or they are counted as our team members; for all those who truly believe in Allah and His Messenger (saws) are united in the team or membership of the Universal Brotherhood of Islam. Our one and only mission is to invite anyone, whether he be a believer or a non-believer, and who is willing to listen to good caution, from the Quran and Sunnah, to come closer to the obedience and worship of his/her Creator.
Although Dr. Brother Zakir Naik (may Allah give him a long life to serve the Cause of
Islam) is not directly related to our forum and is not physically a member of
our team of scholars;
we have immense respect for his knowledge, his dedication, and
his untiring efforts he so selflessly provides in the Cause of Allah Subhanah
and the propagation of Islamic Daawah. We would be honored to be called simple
students of one of the greatest scholar and soldier of Allah of our times. May
Allah bless our teacher and our brother, Dr. Zakir Naik in his continuing works in Islam, increase his zest, zeal,
knowledge, and dedication to
continue the Dawaah;
and grant him a long and healthy life to enable him to spread the
Glorious Word of Allah to all who want to listen to good caution. May Allah Subhanah accept his efforts in the
Cause of His Deen, and
grant him the best in this world, and honor him with the highest grade in
Whatever written of Truth and benefit is only due to Allahs Assistance and Guidance, and whatever of error is of me. Allah Alone Knows Best and He is the Only Source of Strength.
Your Brother in Islam,
