ISIL Militants Killing Muslims in Iraq will Taste the Hellfire



By Ghulam Ghaus, New Age Islam

01 July, 2014  

The self-styled Islamic state of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), the extremist organization has begun to eliminate almost all possibilities of prosperity, deepening the cycle of hatred and rage. Looking at violence and mass slaughter in Iraq during the last 40 years of war that has widowed not less than a million women, strewn body parts right and left, bombed thousands of civilians including school kids and recently brothers killing brothers or Muslims killing Muslims, I would go so far as to say that violent occurrences are due to not practicing Islamic teachings.

The moment we look into the Qur'an and Ahadith we get to gather scores of holy verses and sayings of the Prophet (peace be upon him), which strictly forbid killing Muslims.  Let us see how strictly the Qur'an and sayings of the Prophet (peace be upon him) forbid killing Muslims, taking into consideration where the extremist organizations like ISIL are when they ascribe themselves to be Islamic.           

The holy Quran says:

“But he who kills a Muslim deliberately, his sentence will be Hell wherein will he abide for ages. Allah will afflict him with His wrath and will cast His curse on him. And He has prepared for him a dreadful torment”. (4:93)

From this we can infer that deliberate killing of a Muslim is a great sin that will send its perpetrators to the Hell for a long time. What would be the case with ISIL militants who are killing Muslims in Iraq just for seizing territories and establishing their own state? How much Islamic as they claim they are can be estimated that Allah Almighty will afflict them with His wrath and cast His curse on them and thus a dreadful torment for them.        

Allah Almighty says:

“And do not kill the soul whose (killing) Allah has forbidden, except when it is rightfully due (according to law in self-defence against disruption and whilst combating terrorism). It is these (injunctions) He has enjoined upon you so that you may apply reason”. (6:151)

From the verse above it is evident that unlawful killing of any soul i.e. any human being is forbidden. ISIL militants are doing the acts that Allah has forbidden. Do they not have faith in the Day of Judgement where they will have to recompense the killing of innocent lives? Their recompense is the Hell as mentioned in the verse (4:93).     

Also Allah Almighty says:

“On account of this, We prescribed (this commandment in the Torah sent down) to the Children of Israel that whoever killed a person (unjustly), except as a punishment for murder or for (spreading) disorder in the land, it would be as if he killed all the people (of society); and whoever (saved him from unjust murder and) made him survive, it would be as if he saved the lives of all the people (of society, i.e., he rescued the collective system of human life). And indeed, Our Messengers came to them with evident signs. Yet, even after that, the majority from amongst these people are certainly those who commit excesses in the land” (5:32)

It is now very clear that killing a person is tantamount to kill all mankind and saving a person is like saving all mankind. Despite knowing this teaching from the holy Qur’an revealed by the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him, the ISIL militants are killing Muslims in Iraq. May Allah Almighty save Iraq and Iraqis from these transgressors!

Let us ponder over the following verse:

“And those who hurt the believing men and the believing women without their doing anything (wrong), surely, they bear (themselves) the burden of a false allegation and an open sin” (33:58)

It is an open sin to hurt the believers who have not done anything wrong, according to the holy Quran. But when we see the situation going on in Iraq and the Muslim world, tears come out of our eyes to express that how much anti-Islam the ISIL militants are when they are turning the country into a sea of blood. How great oppressors they are!

Allah Almighty forbids a community to ridicule another community:

“O believers! Let no community ridicule another community. It is likely that they may be better than those (who ridicule)” (49:11)

The ongoing war in Iraq should not be called Sunni vs. Shiites. Almost all the terrorists are fond of attaching their names with Islamic terms like Islam, Jihad, Sharia, Sunni, while they have nothing to do with Islamic teachings like peace, harmony, co-existence, brotherhood, integrity, unity and love. Why is it that they want such titles? Some say they are doing so to disrepute Islam, others say they are being brought up by extremist westerners who have hate and prejudice against Islam so as to degrade the value of Islam, while others say they want to seize Iraq and establish their self-styled caliphate system. Whatever the reason may be, I will say they have no relation with the Qur’an, Ahadith, and rightly guided caliphs. As for their claiming to be Sunnis, it is nothing but a false statement as is transparent in the following Ahadith.    

It is narrated that the Prophet (peace be upon him) said: “A true Muslim is one from whose tongue and hands, all other Muslims are safe; And a true believer is one from whom people’s lives and wealth are secured; And a true Mujahid is one, who subdues his inner self and forces it into God’s obedience; And a true Muhajir is one, who leaves everything that God has disapproved. By Him, Who controls my life in His hand, no such person shall enter Paradise, whose neighbour was not safe from his transgressions”. (This Hadith has been narrated with minor variations in Bukhari Shareef, Muslim Shareef, Tirmidhi, Nasai, Abu Daud, Ahmad Ibn Hambal, Darmi, Ibn Hibban, Bayhaqi, Nasai Sunan al-Kubra, Ibn Abi Shaybah, Abd al-Razzaq, Abu Ya’la and Humaydi)

Sunni is one who follows Sunnah of the prophet Muhammad peace be upon him. The ISIL militants are not practicing any Sunnah. We see Muslims in Iraq are not safe from their tongue and hands. So, the people across the world should not jump to label this terrorist activity “the war between Sunnis and Shiites”, rather it is justly better to call it “the war between terrorists and Muslims”. Moreover, it is the responsibility of all Muslims to unite together to eliminate this act of terrorism through all possible means. 

Better to mention some more Ahadith which reflect the fact that the ISIL militants are against the Islamic teachings. The prophet Muhamamd peace be upon him said:

"Abusing a Muslim is Fusuq (evil doing) and killing him is Kufr (disbelief)." (Sahih al-Bukhari Volume 9, Book 88, Number 197)

These ISIL militants are false in their claim of being Sunnis by killing Muslims or doing an act of disbelief.

Sunan Ibn Majah, Imam Tabarani in his book “Musnad al-Shamiyyin”, Imam al-Mundhiri in ‘Targhib wa Tahrib’ have the following Hadith from Abdullah ibn Amr ibn al-‘As (RA) that he said:

“I saw the Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) performing Tawaf around the holy Kaaba saying to it: ‘how pure and good you are! How pure and good your fragrance is! How great and exalted you are! And how great and exalted your sanctity is! But by Him in whose hand is Muhammad’s soul, the sanctity of a believer’s blood and property in the sight of Allah is greater than your sanctity!”

How much importance Islam has given to the life of a believer can be easily perceived that the sanctity of his blood is greater than that of Kaaba. Where are the ISIL militants wandering without this Hadith?

Abu Huraira (RA) narrates that Allah's Messenger (peace be upon him) said:

“None amongst you should point a weapon towards his brother, for he does not know that Satan might cause the weapon (to slip) from his hand and (he may injure anyone) and thus he may fall into Hell-Fire” (Sahih Muslim; the Book of Virtue, Good Manners and Joining of the Ties of Relationship (Kitab Al-Birr was-Salat-I-wa'l-Adab)  Imam Hakim (R) narrated this Hadith in 'Al Mustadrak, Behqi in As Sunan Al Kubra.

The Prophet Muhammad peace be upon him also said:

“He who pointed a weapon towards his brother the angels invoke curse upon him even if he is his real brother so long as he does not abandon it (the pointing of weapon towards one's brother Muslim).  (Sahih Muslim, Imam Tirmidhi narrates the same Hadith in As Sunan, Imam Hakim in Al Mustadrak, Imam Bayhaqi in As Sunan Al Kubra)

Pointing a weapon like a knife, dagger, sword, or gun at a Muslim, even in play, is forbidden in Islam. It is strictly prohibited for a Muslim to frighten another Muslim unnecessarily. This is what we learn from the Hadith that the angels curse him who points a weapon at another Muslim.

Imam Behqi in Sunan al-Kubra, Sunan Ibn Majah, Imam Ar-Rabee in his Musnad have narrates the following Hadith that forbid to help in killing a Muslim by even a half word:

“Whoever helps in killing a Muslim by even half a word will be brought on the Day of Judgment with the words ‘hopeless from the mercy of Allah’ written between his eyes.”

All the afore-mentioned divine verses and Ahadith strictly forbid killing Muslims. But unfortunately, the current scenario reveals the full horror going on in the Muslim world, particularly Iraq where Muslims are killing Muslims. However, it is more unfortunate that the majority mainstream Muslims and Islamic countries are not coming to unite against oppression in Iraq. So long as we lack that unity, the Islamic world will continue to face the almost daily occurrences of violent and terrorist acts.

  • Dear Moinuddin Raza Thanks for your comment.

    You must have heard a proverb “Jisko Rakhe Allah Usko Kaun Chakhe/ Jisko Rakhe Sayian Maar Sake Na koi” meaning "Whoever is protected by Allah Almighty, no one can kill him".

    I do not fear ISIL. I fear Allah Almighty and that is why I do not want to be silent spectator at the sight of oppression after oppression made by ISIL in Iraq in the name of Islam.

    We Muslims must publicize the tolerant and peaceful teachings of Islam.

    These Wahhabi ISIL militants killing Muslims in Iraq ought to learn a lesson from the life of the prophet peace be upon him who maintained peace despite being oppressed.

    Our holy prophet (God’s blessing and peace be upon him) epitomized the peace treaty of Hudaibiyah for all of us. Those kings and lofty people, who had resisted Islam before, witnessed that the prophet pbuh and his companions were not oppressors, but rather they were the oppressed ones. The prophet pbuh endured stiff opposition and continued persecution including the serious injury caused by the stones that street boys had hurled on him in Taif. The aggressive pagans used to lay thorns in the ways of the prophet pbuh. He tolerated pain and sufferings even during his Salah (prayer). Sometimes he used to be forcibly stopped from worshipping God Almighty. Despite all that, the prophet kept patience and taught his companions to maintain peace and order.

  • Dear Ghulam Ghaus, Nice article but you should take care of yourself. They are very dangerous. ISIL MILITANTS kill all those Ulemas who speak against them. 
    By Moinuddin Raza - 8/23/2014 5:53:56 AM

  •   The prophet addressed the people on Hujjat-ul-wida, “O people! Allah says O mankind! We created you from a male and female couple and split you into tribes and nations to distinguish you from one another. Truly, in the eyes of God, the most righteous among you is the most honoured of you” (49:13)


    The prophet continued that in the light of this Qur'anic verse no Arab had any superiority over a non-Arab, nor was a white in any way better than a black or vice versa. The only criterion of superiority and respectability is the element of piety. (The last Sermon of Prophet Muhammad pbuh)


    It is narrated by Abu Shuraih: The Prophet said:


    "By God he is not a believer, he is not a believer, he is not a believer,” It was said, "Who is that, O Allah's Apostle?” the one who could not provide peace and security to his neighbours." (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 8, Number 45)


    The Hadith applies to all neighbours whether they are Muslims or non-Muslims; a Muslim is one who provides peace and security to all neighbours regardless of their creed or colour. This Hadith obviously refutes Mr. Maududi’s remarks about practising intolerance in the non-Muslim states.

  • Islamic rights to non-Muslims within the Muslim community:


    The scholars of the Islamic law consolidated the relationship between Muslims and others in the Muslim community in the light of the holy Quran and Hadith. There is saying “the one who treats you like himself is supposed to be good for you”. It means that whatever rights, freedoms, and justice we deserve should also be for others. This regulation has been interpreted as follows.


    Provision of protection from external aggression is the responsibility of the Islamic community for non-Muslims. In addition to that,  the internal protection insurance for non-Muslims includes the protection of blood, body, dignity and funds, ensuring the house money, public freedoms like the freedom of belief,  practice, the maintenance of places of worship, thought and learning, in short freedom at all levels: political, social, cultural, economic and religious.


    After all, it must also be pointed out that if an event throughout the history of relations between Muslims and others happened negative in deal, and cruelty in friction, and if the gravity of situation reached the limit of spear, we must certainly relate it to the other factors rather than to the essence of Islam, and the fact of its message. If some Muslim rulers have made errors throughout history and intensified the relations between Muslims and non-Muslims, it cannot be produced as an argument against Islamic standpoint regarding Non-Muslims.


    There have also been some periods of history that some ordinary Muslims attacked some churches and temples in Egypt and the Syria. But Muslim rulers at that time opposed to it and provided necessary assistance to non-Muslims. As a reaction to it some non- Muslims burnt the mosques and houses. (See Qissatul Iztihad Addini 154)


    The reality is that Islam gave absolute respect and prestige to non-Muslims. Despite that if someone opposes to it in the opinion and belief, Muslims must have patience with the saying of Allah “for you your religion and for me my religion” ( Kafiroon 6). Also Allah says “To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way, if God had so willed, he would have made you a single people, but (his plan is) to test you in what he hath given you” (Maidah 48).

  • Comment-3 to Rameshji.

    I don't know the new Commentator Abid Jnu, but his following remarks in this thread below are fully consistent with mine, so kindly do not think that I will be speculative in my interpretation of my own scripture and disqualify myself as an author of an exegetic work:

    "Because the Koran was revealed in the context of an all-out war, several passages deal with the conduct of armed struggle. Warfare was a desperate business on the Arabian Peninsula. A chieftain was not expected to spare survivors after a battle, and some of the Koranic injunctions seem to share this spirit. Muslims are ordered by God to "slay [enemies] wherever you find them!" (4: 89). Extremists such as Osama bin Laden like to quote such verses but do so selectively. They do not include the exhortations to peace, which in almost every case follow these more ferocious passages: "Thus, if they let you be, and do not make war on you, and offer you peace, God does not allow you to harm them" (4: 90).

    In the Koran, therefore, the only permissible war is one of self-defense. Muslims may not begin hostilities (2: 190). Warfare is always evil, but sometimes you have to fight in order to avoid the kind of persecution that Mecca inflicted on the Muslims (2: 191; 2: 217) or to preserve decent values (4: 75; 22: 40). The Koran quotes the Torah, the Jewish scriptures, which permits people to retaliate eye for eye, tooth for tooth, but like the Gospels, the Koran suggests that it is meritorious to forgo revenge in a spirit of charity (5: 45). Hostilities must be brought to an end as quickly as possible and must cease the minute the enemy sues for peace (2: 192-3).

  • Comment-2 to Rameshji:

    You are absolutely right in your statement: "I understand most of the verses in Quran are like 4.92 and 4.93 not relevant to current times. "

    My following write up on "fighting verses" which is due for incorporation in a forthcoming joint publication explains their transitional character and lack of post revelation reverence:

    The Qur’an features scores of verses exhorting the followers of the Prophet to fight against their pagan attackers and violators of treaty alliances, and those who first attacked them and expelled them from their homelands. These verses, related to a transitional period of the revelation are thus specific to the context of the revelation and do not form a part of its eternally definitive message that it commands the believers to follow (3:7, Introduction). They must, however, be retained in the Qur’an to attest to the defensive character of the Prophetic mission that faced mounting hostilities from the pagans and conspiracies from its own ranks (the hypocrites) and native Jewish tribes. However, the Qur’an moderates its fighting verses with reconciliatory verses. Thus, a passage dating from the late Medinite period asks the Muslims to be just and virtuous to those who did not fight against them over religion, nor expelled them from their homelands (60:8), and reminds them that their enemies could eventually become their friends (60:7). The revelation also clarifies that it forbade the Muslims to befriend only those who fought against them over religion, and expelled them from their homelands and helped (others) in their expulsion (60:9).

    God does not forbid you to be virtuous and just to those who did not fight you over religion, nor drove you from your homelands. Indeed, God loves the just (8). God only forbids you to befriend those who fought against you over religion, and expelled you from your homelands, and backed (others) in your expulsion; and whoever befriends them – it is they who are unjust” (60:9).

    Quoting a fighting verse in isolation as an eternally binding dictate can grievously distort the message of the Qur’an. Most of the verses related to fighting as often quoted in isolation or out of context by Islam critical scholarship or literalist Ulama and terror outfits are tabled in our referenced book and omitted from this focused exercise because of their transitional character during the course of revelation.

  • Dear Rameshji,

    Very kind of you to read my response.

    I have quoted from my (jt) exegetic work which is not only approved by the highest religious seminary in Sunni Islam, al-Azhar al-Sharif (2002) but also by one of the most renowed jurist-scholar of Islam, Khaled Abou El Fadl, Prof. of Law at UCLA. You can readily check his credentials at the Google, This is what he said about the book (copy in blue):

    authors do not offer a personalized view of their own religiosity; they explain in a very straightforward and accessible fashion what mainstream Muslims believe in and especially, what the Qur’an itself teaches.  Non-Muslims will understand why well over a billion people call themselves Muslim and also how Islam inspires Muslims to deal with and improve upon the world in which they live.  Indeed this book manages to translate the Muslim vision or the way that Islam heals the ailments of humanity in the current age and every age.  Readers who wish to learn the theological and moral dogma of Islam will find this book indispensable.  But this book is not just an informative tool for the fair-minded and interested reader.  This book is an educational tool for both Muslims and non-Muslims—it is an authoritatively reliable text to teach young Muslims, or even Muslims who never had the time to study the Qur’an, or the fundamentals of their religion.  The book is written with the kind of balance and fair mindedness that makes it equally valuable for Muslim and non-Muslim students of Islam.  The least I can say about this text is that it was written by two ethically conscientious and principled Muslims in order to share their religion with every ethically conscientious and principled reader in the world.  They must be heard.

  • Dear Ravi,

    More than 50 classical Islamic scholars/Muftis belonging to ‘Sufi group of Islam’ issued fatwa against Taliban, according to a Pakistani Arabic website called Alyoum.

    Some of them are Allama Mahmud Siyalwi, Mufti Muhammad Sharfuddin Siddiqi, Mufti Liyaqat Ali Razvi, Mufti Muhammad Usman Razvi, Mufti Muhammad Hanif Attari, Mufti Muhammad Arif Chishti, Mufti Khateeb Ahmad Azhari, Mufti Saeed al Rahman, Allama peer Ghulam Mustafa Shakir, Allama Abdul Latif Qadri, Allama Khalil Rahman Qadri, Mufti Muhammad Farooq Chishti, lawyer Pir Syed Waseem Haq Naqvi, Sahabzadeh Khalid Mahmood Zia, Mufti Sultan Qadri, Allama Mujahid Khan, Mufti Mahmood Ayaz Ali Saeed, Mufti Asif Saeed Qadri, Allama Nisar Ali Noori, Mufti Mahmud Shahbaz Ali, Mufti Mohammad Ahsan Naqwi, Mufti Mohammad Saleem Qadri, Dr Mohamed Radwan Ahmed Razvi, Dr. Ayaz Ahmed Naeemi, Allama Muhammad Shahid Mahmood Abbasi, Allama Riaz Ahmed Hazarwi and a number of other senior clerics and classical Islamic scholars. All of them considered the members of Terror outfit, Taliban/al-Qaeda and other terrorists as deviant from the right path.

    Besides, Muslims in large number condemn, oppose, send curse on terrorist groups like Taliban, al-Qaeda, ISIS etc. I read Arabic comments and find them send curse on such groups.

  • Sources of Funds of Dr. Zakir Naik

    Dr. Naik claims that all his expenses are met by individual Zakat charity.  But the question is who could be giving billions of Dollars  to  of Zakat to Dr. Naik for his huge day to day spending.

    The individual contribution of people who pay him Zakat amount, plus his lectures fee, etc., may not go beyond  2 to 5 million US Dollars annually.  Then how is he managing this massive network without any known income sources?

    Read the following facts that will indicate the possible source of his money laundering.

    (1) Peace TV was  launched in October 2006 on Arab Sat - 'Satellite BADR-3'.  A month later, in November 2006  it was made available on 'Satellite BADR-4 and BADR-C'. In 2007 it became available on 'PanAmSat PAS-10'. Initially all its programs were in English.   In July 2009 Peace TV Urdu was launched.  The latest addition to Peace TV is BANGLA Channel which was launched on April 22, 2011.  Peace TV was first registered in Dubai.  Later, it was also registered in UK.  Dr. Naik claims he does not own Peace TV, because it is registered in some others' names.  But the fact of the matter is he runs the entire show, from Administration to Broadcasting and Publicity on these Channels.    

    (2) In 2007, the Saudi Publishing House, Dar-us-Salam Publications, published two books written by Naik, entitled "The Concept of God in Major Religions" and "The Qur'an & Modern Science: Compatible or Incompatible?"

    (3) For the past 4 years Dr. Naik is hosting a 10-day Peace Conference on Somaiya Ground, Greater Mumbai spending hundreds of millions annually.

     (4) Money Laundering in Peace Conference Extravaganza 

    (a) The fourth annual 10-Day Peace  Conference Extravaganza between 22-31 October, 2010 was held at 35 acre sprawling Somaiya Ground, Off Eastern Express Highway, Sion Mumbai, India. 

    Somaiya Ground is owned by Somaiya Education Society,  Phone 91-22-24080331.  Dr. Naik took this ground on rent  for the whole month of October 2010.  The  daily rent of this huge ground could be between 1-2 million Indian Rupees per day. However, details in this context are not available on their websites.

    (b) The Magnificent Main Stage for the Conference  (more than 5000 sft., with  state-of-the-art intelligent  prop and lighting, modified everyday for 10 days, for a fresh look and feel) can be compared with the opening and ending ceremony stages of Beijing Olympic  and Delhi Common Wealth games.

    (c) Somaiya Ground witnessed 5-Star arrangements  for hundreds of thousands of people who attend this 10 day event.  Dr. Naik announced that there were 2000 volunteers to  look after the arrangements on the Ground.
    (d) It was A-Class sitting arrangement  for men and women for hundreds of thousands of people.
    (e) Professional TV Recording with more than 45 Digital Beta cam and High Definition 4:4:4 Cameras, over 15 Jimmy Jibs of 40 ft. height, Akela Cranes of 80 ft. height and other state-of-the-art equipment was used in this Magnificent Peace Extravaganza. 
    (f) Food, and standard accommodation was provided to thousands of people associated with this Grand event.  It must have cost a fortune to IRF to maintain thousands of peoples'  accommodation, food  in hotels and  transportation to and fro to the Conference Venue which was far away from  the main city of Mumbai  for more than one month.
    (g) Over 100,000 thousand people who came from all parts of India to attend the 10 day event stayed in and around the Conference venue and all of them must have been supported with food and temporary accommodation by IRF till they stayed in Mumbai. 
    (h) VIPs, Guests and Speakers from other parts of India and other  countries were provided with excellent stay in famous hotels,  food, transportation and air travel. 

    (i) Ten Day Exhibition 

    An Exhibition featuring 300 panels and 50 model displays, spread over 30,000 sq. ft. in Air Conditioned pavilions was organized during this Extravaganza.

    (h) Ten Day Halal Products Expo 

    A 10-day Halal Products Expo, promoting trade networking, showcasing Halal Certified Food, Financial and Investment Products and Opportunities; Halal Consumables, Herbal and Health care Products, Cosmetics and  related Products was also set up. A congregation of the international traders, buyers, investors, fund managers, agents, businessmen, media, influential government officials, decision makers and a host of others were invited. 

    (i) Newspapers Advertisements

    Seventy Eight (78)  big and small advertisements in Indian newspapers were placed for this Conference by IRF at an estimated cost of 7 million Indian Rupees. Click Here to see these Ads. We are unaware if IRF placed ads in other countries and on Internet because this information is not provided on their Website.

    (j) It was announced in Newspapers that the Peace Conference was attended by the Imam of Grand Mosque of Makka,  dignitaries and members of  Saudi Royal Family.

    (k)  Dr. Naik is spending similar amounts every year in these yearly Conference Extravaganzas since 2007.


    On 31st October, 2010, the concluding night of the Conference, Dr. Naik announced in front of hundreds of thousands of people that he  is in close contact with King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia.


    Dr. Naik also disclosed to the public that the King gave his Personal Royal Airplane for Saudi dignitaries to attend this conference.


    Dr. Naik talked at length about his special relationship and closeness with the Royal family of Saudi Arabia.  Read more......


     He elaborated how  Saudi Embassy in India and Government officials in Saudi Arabia  worked closely in making sure that the Saudi dignitaries attend the Conference. 

    Dr. Naik also said that he knows all Imams of the Grand Mosques of Makka personally as he meets with them very often.   Video Clip showing all Imams meeting with King 

    He went on to say that when he wanted an Imam of the Grand Mosque to attend the Conference and mentioned it to the King, the King offered him to take any Imam of his (Dr. Naik's) choice to the Conference.  Dr. Naik first selected Imam Sudais to attend the Conference. But it so happened that Imam Sudais could not make it in view of some emergency (which was not disclosed by Dr. Naik). Then Dr. Naik selected Imam Shuraim  to attend the Conference.      

    It seems, Saudi Government and the King himself are more than willing to give anything to Dr. Naik.  They were very keen that Dr. Naik's Peace Conference becomes  a memorable extravaganza in the world.

    When we look at Dr. Naik's closeness with Royal family, as announced by him in the Conference, and his unlimited spending prowess, it is easier to figure out the primary source of Dr. Naik's money laundering.


    (5) Money Laundering in Peace Conference 2011 Extravaganza


    Look  at the Hollywood style entry of Dr. Naik in 2011 Peace Conference.  Dr. Naik is spending millions of Dollars in these gimmics.  Watch this Video Clip


    But, the billion dollar  question is why Saudis are paying such huge unaccounted and undisclosed sums to Dr. Naik every year?

    No body will pay billions of Dollars unless they have a major objective behind it. 

    Saudi Royal family's support to Dr Naik cannot be for Islamic propagation because the whole world knows about their questionable life style and  open disregard to  Islamic Sharia.  As per critics, the Royal family is not only involved in financial corruption, but they are also involved, up to their feet, in worst type of moral corruption anyone can imagine. When you look at Saudi Royals, it will be easier for you to compare them with Pagan-Lords of Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) time.  As a matter of fact,  the pagan lords can come nowhere near the modern Saudi Royals  and the Rich  in any deed you compare between them. Read more......

  • If the ISIS version of Islam were the true Islam, Islam would never have spread as it did. A ruthless and intolerant creed turns off people. The faiths that succeed are those that affirm people's innate goodness. 
    By Ghulam Mohiyuddin - 7/3/2014 4:05:30 AM

  • Recently, we tried to explain to a die hard follower of Dr. Zakir Naik in UK about an issue which was not specifically mentioned in Quran and Ahadith.  We explained to him that Muslims take guidance from the practice of Sahaba in issues which are not exclusively mentioned in Quran and Ahadith because we consider them as authentic Guides who understand Quran and Ahadith better than any individual in Muslim Ummah.  We provided him many Ahadith which confirmed the practice of Sahabah in that particular issue. This man rejected our argument and insisted that since the issue is not explicitly mentioned in Quran and authentic Ahadith, he will not accept. He even rejected the practices of Khulfa-e-Rashideen, Ummahatul Momineen (رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہم اجمعین ) en masse (altogether). 

    His grim and shocking behavior reflected how deeply he was brainwashed by Dr. Naik's lectures.  Indeed, IRF and Peace TV are spreading wrongful Salafi beliefs in the name of Islamic teachings  in over 150 countries 24/7, resulting in brainwashing of hundreds of thousands of people in the world.

    Looking at the gravity of the situation,  we thought it necessary to write this article identifying Dr. Naik's  popular and deceptive arguments to fool innocent people.  





    Salafis say that they are the followers of  Salaf  (the first and second generation of Sahabah-  رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہم اجمعین ).

    Their above claim is the biggest joke of Islamic history.  Because these so called Salafis claim that all first,  second, third and following generations of  Sahabah are Bid'atees (Innovators). All Salafi scholars, have declared the practice of all Sahabah to perform 20 Rakat Taraweeh prayer as biddah.  Meaning they are labeling all first generation Sahabah and members of Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم)family as bidd'atees (innovators).  Allahu Akbar.  Read more...

    Thus, Salafis are worse than Shias, because Shias blame some of the first generation Sahabah and Khulfa-e-Rashideen as wrong doers, while Salafis brand all Sahabah, members of Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) family, Mohajirs and Ansaars (رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہم اجمعین ) as Bid'atees(Innovators of Islam).

    Al-bani (1914-1999) also  declared Sahabah, including Khulfa-e-Rashideen, Members of Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) family, Muhajireen and Ansars  (رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہم اجمعین ) as Bid'atees because they performed 20 Rakah Taraweeh in congregatoin.  Read more...

    Al-Bani's declaration is  supported by all prominent Salafi Scholars in the world.  Dr. Zakir Naik, who is one of the  hard core Salafis, also talks in the same language like Al-Bani.  Dr. Naik gives all the arguments given by Al-Bani and virtually convinces his audience that Sahabah are innovators, but stops short of calling them as such openly to avoid Muslim backlash in the world.  This is plain hypocrisy.

    There are many Salafi Scholars who also take Dr Naik's route and stop short of calling Sahabah as innovators for fear of Muslim anger in the world, but they put forward all kinds of arguments and logic to convince their listeners that Sahabah are innovators.

    Salafis consider Al-Bani as their Imam of Hadith.  And Al-Bani  declared Imam Bukhari as 'Mushrik' (Nauzubillahi) for translating 'Wajhu' as 'dominion and sovereignty (mulk) in verse  كُلُّ شَيْءٍ هَالِكٌ إِلَّا وَجْهَهُ ۚ (Meaning - Everything will perish save his countenance (Al-Qasas - 88) in the 'Book of Tafsir in Sahih Bukhari. 

    Salafis  openly accuse Imam Hussain (رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ) as wrong doer and claim  that  his assassin Yazid was pious Amir al-Momineen  and  say  رضئ اللہ تعالی عنہ with his name. They wrongly quote a Hadith to prove Yazid as Jannati. (Astaghfiruallah).  Read Black Deeds of Salafis...

    They humiliated and insulted Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم)by destroying his house in Makka where he lived 28 years with his family.  They built a Public Toilet on it.  Allahu Akbar.

    They have mysteriously disposed off over 60,000 pious bodies of Sahabah in Arabian Peninsula after destroying their pious graves.  Nobody knows what happened to those sacred bodies, where were they thrown out and how those sacred bodies were disposed off. Read more...

    Salafis are hand in glove with Zionists in the world and they are killing hundreds of thousands of Muslims in different countries. There are videos on you tube where Salafis have been shown slaughtering people in Syria and removing and eating their raw organs. Salafis are destroying Islamic Heritage in all parts of the world.  Read details...

    Salafis reject almost all the practices of Sahabah.  We have described some of their prominent rejections of the practices of  Sahabah in this Article.  Read this important information.   You will be aghast to read these details.  Read more ...

    Salafis and their like minded groups worship a Sky Idol God who has two hands, two eyes, a face, a mouth and tongue in the mouth, two shins, legs, fingers in hand and feet and a huge human like physical body; who is sitting on a big chair on the skies in one direction. They claim that this huge Sky Idol has limitations on his movements as he cannot come near human beings, therefore, knows about them only by his knowledge.  They call this human like deity as Allah (Astaghfirullah). The difference between Hindu God Vishnu and Salafi Idol God is, Vishnu is married, and Salafi Idol God is single. Read history of Salafi Idol God... 





    Dr. Naik says he is a student of comparative religion, but he gives his rulings and opinions literally on all Islamic subjects. He even criticizes Imams of Fiqh and Ahadith. He claims that they (Imams of Fiqh and Ahadith)  did not have full information about Ahadith when they gave their Islamic rulings.  He claims he judges the Imams rulings and acts as per his better understanding of Quran, Ahadith (Astagfirullah).  He claims that acceptance and following of Imams as truthful teachers of Islam has damaged Islam(La haula wala quawwata illah Billah.  Allah - سبحانہ و تعا لی save Islam and Muslims from Hypocrites). Watch the following shocking Video clip.




    We all know Dr. Naik is a mysterious home grown,  self read and self trained scholar of Islam.  It is not known  who taught him reading  of Quran because his Arabic accent  and Quran reading is completely out of gear, unprofessional and against tajweed rules.  His website is also silent as to where he studied Tafseer al-Quran, Usool-e-Hadith, rules of Fiqh, Sharia, Arabic language, and other essential Islamic subjects required of a true Islamic scholar who is allowed to give opinions on issues of Islamic fiqh. 

    As per the information on his Website, Dr. Naik was influenced by the comparative religion lectures of Shaikh Ahmed Deedat (رحمة لله علىـہ) of South Africa (1918-2005) when he was studying Medicine.  This means that Dr. Naik's  self-home-reading of Islamic subjects started when he was  around 22 years old (around 1987). Amazingly, in less than 3 years self-reading of Islamic Subjects (1987-1990), in addition to his extensive medical full-time on-campus study, semester exams, medical internship, etc., he self-read everything about Islam and established Islamic Research Foundation in February 1991 and started full time Da'wa. 

    In his lectures, Dr. Naik says that he started Da'wa even before the establishment of IRF in 1991.  This shows Dr. Naik has exceptional ability of memorization.  He did not read Islamic subjects with the intention to understand them, he simply by-hearted every book that came his way in about 2  years time. 

    Those, whose memory is sharp, are generally intelligent, but they often become dictionaries. They never try to  understand the subject; they memorize it with the intention to repeat it either in an exam or in front of people to get applause.  They heavily depend upon their word-by-word  photo finish memory and develop their skills in debates.   They mesmerize their audience by skillful display of their memory and often turn the tables on their opponents in debates.  They can convert logic into illogic and wisdom into stupidity by their arguments and oratory.  They use their vast memory to confuse their opponents and followers alike.  Over a period of time when they become famous and develop considerable following among people, they start large scale misrepresentation of  facts by their tricky arguments and become leaders of a new group in the world.  That is how Ibn Taymiyya (1263-1328) became the founder of a new Sect by the power of his  super-memory and oratory.

    Now Zakir Naik is a living example of this phenomenon.  Since people are not well versed in Islamic subjects, they easily become victims of his tricky arguments and misleading oratory.  Watch this interesting video clip. 








    Dr. Naik  says : "Do not look at what Muslims do, look at Quran and Hadith". He shows copy of Quran to the audience by raising his hands and says "Whatever is in there, is Islam and whatever is not there is not Islam".

    (1) The copies of Quran Dr. Naik shows to the people in his lectures are published by Salafi Publishing Houses, aided by Petro-Dollar wealth. These copies contain misinterpretations of Quranic verses at a massive scale.

    What Salsfis do is,  they misinterpret categorical verses (Ayaat-e-Muhkamaat) of Quran to establish their self concocted beliefs. 

    In addition, they insist on literal (textual) translation of allegorical verses (Ayaat-e-Mutashabihaat) of Quran to consolidate their self fabricated notions.

    This practice is exactly the opposite of what should be done. Meaning, the categorical verses (Ayaat-e-Muhkamaat) should be understood in their literal meanings and allegorical verses (Ayaat-e-Mutashaabihaat) should be interpreted to get to the factual meanings.  Look at the following Quranic verse.

    It is in Quran إِنَّ الَّذِينَ يُبَايِعُونَكَ إِنَّمَا يُبَايِعُونَ اللَّهَ يَدُ اللَّهِ فَوْقَ ۚ أَيْدِيهِمْ(Meaning - Certainly, those who are doing ‘the promise of allegiance’ ( b’aya ) to you, O’ Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), they are actually doing the promise of allegiance to Allah(سبحانہ و تعا لی).  Allah’s (سبحانہ و تعا لی)  hand is upon their hand. (Al-Fath – 10).

    Salafis claim that from the above verse Allah's (سبحانہ و تعا لی) hands are established, therefore Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) has hands (La haula wala quwwata illah billah). 

    Even an average Muslim knows that it is an allegorical (metaphorical - symbolic ) expression.  It means that the people should take the hand of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم)  in all the seriousness as if it is the hand of Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) while doing ba'ya. 

    We can understand it by an example.  When a Secretary of State signs a document in other country for a treaty or agreement with that country, he signs on behalf of the President of United States. 

    Similarly, the above Quranic verses can be understood in its real meanings.  But no.  Salafis insist on textual translation of this verse to establish hands for Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی) (Astaghfirullah)Read  more...  

    Saudi Royal Family came to power in Arabian Peninsula with the help of Salafi ideology. This kind of translations and understanding of Quran and Ahadith by Salafi scholars, in collusion with Saudi Ruling family,  is a deliberate attempt to misguide people in order to hold them at ransom in the name of Islam and enjoy their hold on power and leadership eternally. 

    They have published a "Nobel Quran" which contains misleading translation of important verses of Quran. 

    Read the following Quranic verse to understand this issue clearly.    

    It is in Quran -  هُوَ الَّذِي أَنزَلَ عَلَيْكَ الْكِتَابَ مِنْهُ آيَاتٌ مُّحْكَمَاتٌ هُنَّ أُمُّ الْكِتَابِ وَأُخَرُ مُتَشَابِهَاتٌ ۖ فَأَمَّا الَّذِينَ فِي قُلُوبِهِمْ زَيْغٌ فَيَتَّبِعُونَ مَا تَشَابَهَ مِنْهُ ابْتِغَاءَ الْفِتْنَةِ وَابْتِغَاءَ تَأْوِيلِهِ ۗ وَمَا يَعْلَمُ تَأْوِيلَهُ إِلَّا اللَّهُ ۗ وَالرَّاسِخُونَ فِي الْعِلْمِ يَقُولُونَ آمَنَّا بِهِ كُلٌّ مِّنْ عِندِ رَبِّنَا ۗ وَمَا يَذَّكَّرُ إِلَّا أُولُو الْأَلْبَابِ  (Meaning - "He is who has sent down to you (O'Prophet - صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) the Book (Quran).  Some verses of it are definite in meaning (Ayaat-e-Muhkamaat).  These form the mother of the Book (the basic there in) and the rest are figurative (metaphorical) (Ayaat - e - Mutashaabihaat).  But  they,  in whose minds there is a tendency to deviate from truth, take the metaphorical (verses in their literal / textual sense) craving discord, and craving to give them their own interpretation, although none knows the reality about them except Allah(سبحانہ و تعا لی).  And those who make it right approach to knowledge could only say  'we believe therein all that is from our Lord'.  None can catch their significance except those gifted with insight." (Aal-e-Imran - 7). 
    Who are the people who are gifted with insight by Allah (سبحانہ و تعا لی)?They are Awliya Allah, Imams of Fiqh, and Sahabah. 
    But the problem with Salafis is, they regard all Sahabah as bida'atees (innovators). They reject all Imams of Fiqh and Ahadith and  claim their following as Shirk. They also reject Prophet's (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم)Ahadith which clearly establish Salafi beliefs as un-Islamic. And they denounce Awliya Allah and Shaiks of Ihsan as Sufi innovators.
    After all these rejections, how could they be treated as Muslims?  As a matter of fact, Salafis are the new version of Kharijis who were declared as out of Islam by Ijma (consensus of Islamic Ulema) long time ago.     

    Their insistence on self study and self understanding of Quran has led them to the greatest invention in human history - a Sky Idol God for their worship, who has hands, eyes, face, tongue and a huge human like physical body; who is sitting on a big chair over the skies.  They claim this Idol is self made, only one of its kind, independent, neither beget nor begotten and none is like him.  They also claim that this Idol has created this Universe.  They prostrate in front of this Idol 5-times a day during their modified Salah. 

    In his lectures, Dr. Naik compares this Sky God with other gods and tries to prove his point that his Idol God is the real God of all.

    Ibn Baz (1910-1999) the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia wrote: (Their Sky) God has (i) a physical body (al-jism), (ii) He is physically sitting on the sky, (iii) He has limbs, hands, eyes, tongue, face and other body parts (like legs, shins, genitals, etc.) Read more ...

    The person who founded Salafism was Ibn Taymiyyah, (1263-1328) the most controversial figure in the history of Islam.  It is a known fact that Ibn Taymiyyah did not study Islam under any known Shaikh of his time.  He memorized many religious books on his own. Read more...

    Ad-Dhahabi a very famous Salafi Scholar wrote : "He (Ibn Taymiyya) was an outstanding scholar, very accurate and meticulous in his intellectual examinations, but guilty of introducing innovations in the Religion (mubtadi‘)". This was reported by al-Sakhawi in his book al-I`lan wa al-tawbikh.

    Dhahabi's own disclaimer of the errors of Ibn Taymiyya is stated explicitly in his stern  al-Nasiha ad-Dhahabiyya, which was published in Damascus in 1347 (1929) together with his Bayan zaghal al-`ilm.

    Ibn Hajar mentioned Dhahabi's Nasiha in al-Durar al-kamina (1:166), and so did al-Sakhawi in al-I`lan wa al-tawbikh (p. 504). Two extant manuscripts of the Nasiha are kept, one in Cairo at the Dar al-kutub al-misriyya (#B18823) and one in Damascus at the Zahiriyya library (#1347).

    Shaikh Taj aldin  Subki said, ‘He (Ibn Taymiyyah) memorized a lot but did not discipline himself with a Shaikh’. Read more about Ibn Taymiyyah...

    Let us see how Ibn Taymiyyah described the characteristics of the Salafi Sky God.  He wrote : 

    (i)  God needs (Meaning the God  is not independent and not self subsistent) (ii) He is divisible (we do not know what does he mean by divisibility of his Sky God) (iii) He settles in a place. (iv) He has six directions - up - down - left - right - front - back. (Meaning, the Sky God  has a physical body). The Sky God is sitting above skies and his face is in a certain direction. (v) He has limitations; no one but he knows about it.  Even his place (dwelling) has a limitation which is on the seventh sky.  Thus the Sky God has two limitations of movements. (vi) He has a size (of his body).  (vii) He must be creating continuously.  He can choose what to create but he cannot choose whether to create or not.  (Meaning, he is helpless, has no choice but to create continuously).  (viii) He is not mixed with his creation but is sitting alone separately on the sky. (ix) He has two real eyes, two real hands, a real (human like) face and other limbs (like legs, shins, genitals, etc.).  His face and other limbs  are known to him only.  Read more about Ibn Taymiyyah's beliefs ...

    When we look at the above characteristics, it looks some kind of a Sky Monster sitting over the skies.  And this is the Sky Idol God of Salafis.  Astaghfirullah. 



    It is in Hadith - On the authority of Omar bin Al-Khattab (رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہ ), who said: I heard the Messenger of Allah (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) say: Actions are but intention and every man shall have but that which he intended.  Thus he whose migration was for Allah ( سبحانہ و تعا لی ) and His Messenger (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and he whose migration was to achieve some wordly benefit or to take some woman in marriage, his migration was for that for which he migrated' Related by Bukhari and Muslim.   
    Thus, a person's act of  prostration will be judged according to his intention.  If a Salafi, who believes in Sky Idol God, who has a physical body, is prostrating in a mosque or in front of Kabatullah or  in Masjid-e-Nabawi, the Angels who record his deeds will write his name as Idol worshiper only. There cannot be two opinions in this context because his beliefs and  intention are known to the Angels.
    The Sky God worship of Salafi Groups  is more serious than other Idol worshipers in the sense that they have created an Sky Idol Godfor themselves by misinterpreting Quranic verses and Ahadith. They are not only Idol worshipers, but they are misleading entire Muslim Umman into Idol worship.  Allahu Akbar.  This is similar to the people of Moses (علیھ السلا م) who  made an Idol of Calf and started worshiping it as their Calf God in the absence of Prophet Moses (علیھ السلا م ).

    It is in Quran - وَمَنْ أَظْلَمُ مِمَّنِ افْتَرَىٰ عَلَى اللَّهِ كَذِبًا أَوْ كَذَّبَ بِآيَاتِهِ ۗ إِنَّهُ لَا يُفْلِحُ الظَّالِمُونَ  [Meaning - And who is more unjust than he who forges a lie against Allah ( سبحانہ و تعا لی ) or (he who) gives the lie to His communications (verses of Quran); surely the unjust will not be successful]. ( Al-An-A'am-21).


    All Salafi deeds, their modified Salah, Fasting, Zakat and Hajj, all are futile exercise as  the angels recording their deeds declare them Idol worshipers in view of their belief in Sky Idol God. We hope that Salafis realize this folly and come back to the straight path of Islam and ensure their salvation in Hereafter.  

    Salafis and their like minded groups sacrifice animals in the name of their Sky Idol God during Hajj,  on Eid al-Adha and other occasions. When they say Bismillahi Allahu Akbar - they imagine a Sky Idol sitting over the skies with a huge human like physical body. They sacrifice animal for this Sky Idol God. Thus, their recording angels treat this sacrifice as Haraam, similar to what Makkan Apostates used to do for their Idol Gods.  Read more... 

    It is in Quran -  وَمَا أُهِلَّ لِغَيْرِ اللَّهِ بِهِ  (Meaning - Whatever is sacrificed in the name of anyone other than Allah -  سبحانہ و تعا لی   is forbidden).  (Al-Maa'ida - 3).

    Therefore, Ahle Sunnah Muftis should consider this aspect and advice Muslims to eat what is Halal by Islamic standards rather than eating the Haram which is sacrificed in the name of a Sky Idol God.   Read more about Salafi Groups in the World...

    Salafis have changed almost all Ahadith books and have removed over 5000 Ahadith from the authentic books of Ahadith and have published new versions of these books. They removed all Ahadith which nullify their beliefs.  In addition, they changed the chains of narrators of some Ahadith to make these Ahadith 'untrustworthy'Read more...

    When Dr. Naik asks people to refer to Quran and Ahadith to know about Islam, he means the revised versions of these books which have been altered by Salafis to suit their beliefs.  


    Dr. Naik's Deceptive arguments  

    If an issue is not specifically covered in Quran and Ahadith, Muslims take the route of Ijma, meaning consensus of Ulema.  For this purpose, they look at the practices of Sahabah and take guidance from the rulings of Imams of Fiqh.

    There are hundreds of cases where we take guidance from Sahabah and Imams of Fiqh on issues related to Islamic Sharia because we consider that their understanding of Quran and Ahadith was comprehensive and their actions, even though not specifically mentioned in Quran and Ahadith, are indeed based on Quran and Ahadith - the two main sources of Islamic Shariah.

    We have provided below some instances in which  Muslims follow the practices of Sahabah and A'imma in issues which are not specificallycovered in Quran and Ahadith.  However, Salafis reject all these practices. 

    (i) The 20 Rakah Traveeh prayer in congregation in a mosque is established from Ahadith and practice of Khulfa-e-Rashideen and other Sahabah  (رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہم اجمعین )which is continued by Muslims from the times of Sahabah till today.  Even Saudis had to maintain this practice in both the grand mosques of Makka and Madina in view of the fear of Muslim world. 

    However, Salafis' official stand is, "20 Rakah Taraweeh in congregation is Bid'a (innovation in Islam)."   

    Al-Bani declared it Bid'a and all Salafi scholars accept this ruling as correct.  Al-Bani is held in very high stature among Salafi scholars by Saudi Arabian Government.  Read more ...

    (ii) All Khulfa-e-Rashideen, Ummahatul Momineen and Sahabah (رضئ اللھ تعالی عنہم اجمعین ) considered relics of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) as sacred.  As a matter of fact, anything related to Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) is considered as sacred. There are hundreds of Ahadith in this context.  Read these Ahadith...

    Salafis reject all Ahadith in this context.  They claim that respect of Prophet's  (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) relics is shirk.  They destroyed every single Islamic heritage memorial and relic that was kept intact for 1300 years by Muslims.  They dug and destroyed over 60,000 pious graves of Sahabah, family members of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم)and disposed of their bodies mysteriously. This is the most inhuman beastly treachery ever recorded in Human history.  Saudis have a distinction in these crimes against Islam and humanity. Read more ...

    (iii) Their claim of love of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) is only to fool innocent Muslims as they treat the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) on par with common sinful human beings.  They say there is no difference between the death of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) and the death of a Non believer as both are in effective after death (Astaghfirullah - We pray Allah -  سبحانہ و تعا لی to save Muslims from these hypocrites - Munafiqoon)

    We invite our readers to go through the information in the following link to find out the pre-eminence of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) in the light of Quran and Ahadith.

    Haqeeqat-e-Mohammadi (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم)


    (iv) Visiting of Muslims' graves is Sunnah.  Asking for Dua from Awliya Allah (dead or alive) is proved from hundreds of Ahadith. Read more...

    Even Imam Shafi'i used to visit the grave of Imam Abu Hanifa for tawassul (mediation). We have provided around 100 Ahadith in this context.  

    Salafis treat the pious graves of Prophet Mohammad (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم), his Sahabah and Awliya Allah as places of apostasy and ask people to stay away from them. 

    They have humiliated and insulted the Prophet (صلى الله عليه و آله وسلم) by destroying his  house in Makka where he lived 28 years with his family and  built a Public Toilet on it to be used by millions of people. 

    (v) We have discussed in detail how Salafis misquote Quranic verses and Ahadith to prove their self  fabricated beliefs.  Click the following link to read facts. 

    Misquoted Quranic verses and Ahadith


    If you tell people read Quran and Ahadith on their own and lead their Islamic life,  it will be impossible for them to understand Islamic Sharia from their self reading.  They need to find a true Shaikh who can explain them the meanings of Quran and Ahadith and guide them to the straight path of Islam. 

    Sometimes there are more than one Quranic verses on a topic.  Similarly, there may be more Ahadith on one topic and the reader may  get confused as to which verse or Hadith is applicable in his case. 

    Therefore, it is imperative that we find truthful Islamic Shaikh who would guide us in day to day issues and teach us the true spirit of Islam. This shows the importance of ba'ya in Islam.

    Read the importance of Ba'ya





    Dr. Naik tries to fool people by another  popular deceptive argument and says the 'blind following of Imams has damaged Islam'. He also says that every Imam said that if his (Imam's) fatwa or ruling contradicts with Quranic verse or Hadith, it should be thrown on the Wall.  He claims that he studies all Imams fatawas comparing them with Ahadith (that have been altered by Salafis)  and when he finds a fatwa which is not in line with (these altered) Ahadith, he throws it on the wall (Astaghfiruallah).  He says, by doing so, he is following all Imams.  What a mockery of Islamic Sharia???  Watch this disturbing video clip. 




    Dr. Naik says, he is following all Imams,  by not  following them. 

    What a deceitful argument? 

    He also says, he is more Hanafi, more Shafi'i, more Maliki and more Hanbali than anyone else in the world. 

    Look,  how Dr. Naik fools people by playing with words. 

    In other words he does not trust the Imams and their rulings. Therefore, he compares their rulings with Ahadith which have been altered by Salafis at a massive scale.  And if any Imam's ruling does not fit in the altered Hadith, he rejects it.  What a judgment ???? 

    Thus, he considers himself as self-appointed-Jurist of Islam who investigates Fatawas and rulings of all Imams and passes his judgment as to what is right and what is wrong in the light of misinterpreted Quranic Verses and altered Ahadith.  What a deceitful argument !!!

    In other words, he is claiming all Imams of Fiqh and Ahadith as untrustworthy because they did not give fatawas as per the new understanding of Salafi teachings which they have preserved in their altered books of Ahadith.  La haula wala quwwata illah billah.  

    When he says that the Imams were unaware of full Islamic teachings and Ahadith, he means that they were unaware of the new Salafi thought and self concocted Salafi believes.  Therefore their rulings are unacceptable.  

    Salafism is not Islam.  Dear readers do you want more proof? 

    Dr. Naik is totally illiterate  in all Islamic subjects. He has not studied Islam in any school, under any scholar.  He has been made an Islamic Judge by Saudi Royal Family to judge the rulings of Imams of Fiqh and Ahadith in the light of Salafi beliefs.

    When you repeat a lie 100 times, people start believing it as truth.  Dr. Naik uses all media techniques to lead people into believing his deceitful arguments.  This is the reason we see large crowds attending his lectures, clapping and being fooled by  skillful  display of his memory and deceitful oratory.

    We also get surprised when certain TV channels call him for an interview and ask him questions about Islamic Sharia.  We fail to understand how come a totally illiterate person in Islamic subjects is treated as Grand Mufti by these TV Channels?

    We do not want to go into details as how important it is to follow the Imams of Fiqh and Ahadith and trust them in their rulings if you want to be on the straight path of Islam. This issue has been discussed and debated by many prominent scholars and related information is available in books and on Internet in abundance. 

    We have described in our earlier Ariticles how salafis have invented more than 10 kinds of fake marriages,  (like Misyar,  Urfa, Misyaf, Misfar, etc.)   (while Shias did not dare to go beyond one - Muta).  We have also described  how their prominent scholars and Imams of Grand Mosque of Makka are issuing indiscriminate fatawas to legitimize prostitution and flesh trade in the name of Islam.  We provided details how Salafis are playing with the lives of needy women in and outside Saudi Arabia.  Read more about legalized prostitution in Salafi society... 

    If they had followed Imams of fiqh, they would have been saved from these criminal innovations and could have walked on the right path of Islam.

    Some innocent people argue that Dr. Naik is fighting for the cause of Islam against Christian Missionary onslaught. Dear brothers and sisters, he is not promoting Islam, he is promoting Salafism on the instance of Saudi Royal Family for which he is paid abundantly.  Read facts.........

    There are hundreds of other tricky and deceptive arguments of Dr. Naik by which people are mislead in many issues.  We have not mentioned them in this article, neither we are interested to write about them, because  our aim is not to catch Dr. Naik's deception in his arguments.  We are only interested to save real Islam and Muslims in the world.  Therefore, we have mentioned about only  those prominent issues which are directly related with Correct Islamic Faith.  It is important that people know about these facts to safeguard their Iman and get salvation in Hereafter.

  • Dear Mr M. yunus sahab,

       I read your explanation for verse no 4.93 read in conjunction with verse 4.92.  I believe blood vendetta theory has been postulated by you to give a contextual explanation for the verse. Assuming the blood vendetta theory to be true , the verse has relevance only for that time  only and has no relevance now. Quoting such irrelevant verses now  will create only chaos. You see the string of qualifications in islamic studies attached to Mr Ghauss .It is astounding.If  such a person can quote irrelevant verses ,what to speak of common man? The current mayhem will continue. Also verse 2.178 refered by you is not applicable at current times as no one is maintaining slaves to give compensation.

       I understand most of the verses in Quran are like 4.92 and 4.93 not relevant to current times. Hence aplying  Quran by the devout at current times will create violence only as happening nowadays.
