Can We Take Knowledge from Zakir Naik by Dr. Murtaza Bakhsh [URDU]

February 18, 2012

بسم الله الرحمن الرحيم

A lot of brothers in Pakistan, Inidia, Bangladesh, and other countries are infulenced by Zakir Naik. People who clamin themselves to be Ahlul Hadeeth also praise Zakir Naik but they are unaware of his aqeedah and the serious errors he has been spreading among the people. In the video, our noble brother Dr. Murtaza Bakhsh pointing out his errors in Aqeedah (Islamic Creed) and these errors can’t be overlooked. Mohammad Ibn Sereen (d. 110 AH) once said: This Knowledge is a Matter of Deen, so be careful who you take your deen from

    Can someone translate the errors that Dr. Murtaza Bakhsh mentioned regarding Zakir Naik?

    Let’s see what Zakir Naik really said….

    To Allah belong the most beautiful names:

    The Qur’an says:

    “Say: Call upon Allah, or Call upon Rahman: By whatever name you call Upon Him, (it is well): For to Him belong The Most Beautiful Names.” [Al-Qur’an 17:110]

    A similar message regarding the beautiful names of Allah (swt) is repeated in the Qur’an in Surah Al-Araf (7:180), in Surah Taha (20:8) and in Surah Al-Hashr (59:24).
    The Qur’an gives no less than ninety-nine different attributes to Almighty Allah. The Qur’an refers to Allah as Ar-Rahman (Most Gracious), Ar-Raheem (Most Merciful) and Al-Hakeem (All Wise) among many other names. You can call Allah by any name but that name should be beautiful and should not conjure up a mental picture.


    i) The oldest of all the vedas is Rigveda. It is also the one considered most sacred by the Hindus. The Rigveda states in Book 1, hymn 164 and verse 46:

    Sages (learned Priests) call one God by many names. [Rigveda 1:164:46]

    ii) The Rigveda gives several different attributes to Almighty God. Many of these are mentioned in Rigveda Book 2 hymn 1.

    Among the various attributes of God, one of the beautiful attributes mentioned in the Rigveda Book II hymn 1 verse 3, is Brahma. Brahma means The Creator. Translated into Arabic it means Khaliq. Muslims can have no objection if Almighty God is referred to as Khaliq or Creator or Brahma. However if it is said that Brahma is Almighty God who has four heads with each head having a crown, Muslims take strong exception to it.

    Describing Almighty God in anthropomorphic terms also goes against the following verse of Yajurveda:

    Na tasya Pratima asti

    There is no image of Him. [Yajurveda 32:3]

    Another beautiful attribute of God mentioned in the Rigveda Book II hymn 1 verse 3 is Vishnu. Vishnu means The Sustainer. Translated into Arabic it means Rabb. Again, Muslims can have no objection if Almighty God is referred to as Rabb or ‘Sustainer’ or Vishnu. But the popular image of Vishnu among Hindus, is that of a God who has four arms, with one of the right arms holding the Chakra, i.e. a discus and one of the left arms holding a conch shell, or riding a bird or reclining on a snake couch. Muslims can never accept any image of God. As mentioned earlier this also goes against Svetasvatara Upanishad Chapter 4 verse 19.

    If Vishnu means The Sustainer/Rabb then this is one of the attributes of Allah. So what’s the problem?

    People say vishnu represents an idol, but Zakir Naik excluded imagery. Allah to the pagans was a God with 3 daughters. Should we not use Allah? The Arab Christians say Allah is Jesus or Jesus is the son of Allah. Strange….With this logic we cannot call Allah “The Creator” in english because the Prophet pbuh didn’t say it in english.

    I wonder, 124000 or so prophets came to the world. Did they all speak arabic to their people or address the people in their own languages? Some scholars believe hinduism was actually from a Prophet of Allah, but people in the sanskrit language changed the attributes of Allah into idols. I have a book that shows Prophet Muhammad pbuh being prophesied in the Hindu scriptures.

    I think Salafis, Hanafis…and all the other -eees …need to take a chill pill.

    Oh Muslim !!! Whatever u fight or argue about Allah or God or vishnu, nothing can be proved till u go underground and then next world and then again you can not come Back and tell me what’s the real truth ….. Screaming , shouting , show off practice wouldn’t prove nothing in hereafter if there is no hereafter .. Well u might say that I am asking for proof and so I am not Muslim … Sura al Bakra, at start said believing on unseen thing call ” faith ” …., it’s like a gamble .., place the bet but you wouldn’t know if u win or loose at the end … I better believe it than not believe in case something there after death …

  8. HI akhee . This is Javid Hussain . Can we follow Yahya al Hajoori and Abu Khadeejah Abdul Waahid .Are they both Salafi? Some people say , we can take knowledge while the others confuse me that we should not take from them both . Can you please clarify ?

    Thank you(Y)

  9. Abu Musa Atif, it’s worth removing these misguided comments by those ignorant enough to defend this man’s deplorable errors.
