It is my pleasure.
And my honor to be once again back to Perlis after a gap of more than two years.
I've come here several times in 2017 2018 and 2019. And because of this pandemic, the COVID-19
in 2020 and 21 I did not give any talks, all my talks had been canceled or postponed. And Alhamdulillah I'm lucky that in the beginning of this new year 2022
amongst all the invitations that we're spending a Hamdulillah this is my first talk after the pandemic has reduced a hamdulillah it's my pleasure to be back with the people of palace
I think palace has become my second home
about nine days ago
Dotto number 3/3, law buddy
mela protect him. He called me to discuss on the topic
of today's talk.
And he suggested that I speak on the topic Zakah knife, my life
and my story.
Initially I was reluctant
because of falling into the trap of Satan.
As many of you may be aware
that one of the major sins in Islam is real arrogance, it is pride and the Satan
is specifically behind those people who are successful and closer to Allah. So we as dice
should be very careful not to fall in the plan of the Satan.
And I would not like to be among those people who go in don't trumpet and falling into this.
But Dr. Maza as is called in the short form the mafia police mashallah very knowledgeable person
and very close to me and explained to me that the purpose is
so that I can inspire the Muslim man, the youngsters and the others to come closer to Allah subhanaw taala agreed with him, reminding me of the incidents in the year 2015
When I went to take advice from Sheikh Abdulaziz terrific
according to me, amongst the living Islamic scholars in the world, according to me, one of the greatest living Islam scholar today in the world is Shaykh, Abdullah Hisashi.
And he's very close to me,
there was an advisor of mine.
And we have been even taking advice from McKinsey.
I don't know how many of you are aware of McKinsey, it is one of
reputed consultation firm in the world, which has branches in most parts of the world.
So all the advisors, they told me that if you want to increase Indaba, you have to make a brief profile of yourself. Make a book, talking about yourself. And they advised me to make a book, Dr. Zakat, a brief introduction.
And I was reluctant.
They being experts in the field of advertising in marketing, they are doing the job. I was elected.
And when the book was made by my staff Alhamdulillah sama Hamdulillah. It came out very well. hardcover, very good paper, very good printing something unique. But I was scared.
I was scared to give it to anyone thinking that I will lose all the hubbub that I've gained whatever little bit in my life of serving Allah subhanaw taala. So when I went to shake up the registration,
and I told him that this was the advice I got from my advisor from McKinsey.
And I'm not feeling happy giving this book to anyone. He said, Why? Because I don't want to, you know, we falling into the trap of pride of area of arrogance.
So she got ready to shake up the litter if he told me
because you're thinking, you're feeling bad, that itself shows that you're not proud of yourself. Number one.
The moment you're feeling bad, that you don't want to give this book to anyone itself is a sign that you're not doing it for arrogance, surprise. Number two, he said the advice given to you was for what purpose? So I told him so that my Dow activity would increase. The people would come to know about my activities and the support would increase. And the reach would be more because that book had a lot of achievements of awards, photographed with heads of states of the world with top scholars. It came out to be so good that I was afraid.
After taking the advice of Sheikh Abdullah is Tracy then I was a little bit relaxed. And I thought to it that I didn't make it public but gave it only to
Those people who I thought would benefit
nine days back
when the mafia police, Dr. Masa
as is called by the people who love him
he again came up with the same hikma that the purpose is not to show off.
And he told me that when you give your life story many times, people who are successful, they don't tell the story and it is lost.
When you say it with your own mouth, many things would inspire
the Muslim ummah. And we can make small clips of five minutes, three minutes, four minutes for your full talk, we can make clips, so that that would inspire the people all over the world. I told him I
was talking about my life would minimum did to us, he said no problem.
And I agree with the suggestion.
And today's topic is
and my story from a stammer to an Islamic orator and Hegira from India to Malaysia.
Later on, when I started to gather my thought, What should I speak I realize it's impossible to cover into us at minimum five US then I thought no, no adequate 10 us living I thought whoa, I should know 20 years then I said impossible minimum Coronavirus can but natural I can give a talk for 25 hours.
So now I'm in a dilemma How can I finish my life and my story in two hours. So, let me tell you this will just be scratching the surface.
But I decided that insha Allah in the coming few months, I would give a series of talk in my studio
and put through there maybe for more than 25 hours
trying to fulfill a little bit
what Dr. Martha wanted. So that you know we can make small clips
from 25 other more than that, so that it will not be lost in wilderness and I know many times it will be an inspiration for youngsters
because today we have two types
of thought about dies where I come from India
die means miskeen
not having knowledge of the world at all.
No coming from
a different angle to it.
When we go to some parts of the world where Muslims and majority they make Dawa as a profession to earn money these extremes
the charge a lot. So the two extremes
which you have inshallah maybe my life and my story
would be an example for the people to become dice. Let me tell you one thing in the beginning and I'll conclude with that also that never ever become a die so that you can earn money in this world
as a profession no problem. That doesn't mean you can't take salary because
all of us knows the very famous duar
that we do
from the Quran Rabbana Atina fifth dunya has not overfill actually that wasn't enough. Oh my Lord
give me the best in this world and our Hara. And save me from the torment of the Hellfire
who doesn't know this door?
Mashallah, who knows this door raise your hand
raise I heard
Marshall everyone everyone knows Mashallah. Very famous door. Now.
Can anyone from here who's not Hafiz? Can tell me what this dua is from the Glorious Quran Surah Baqarah Chapter number two was number 201. You may not know the reference I'm telling you.
Does anyone know what comes one was before this? Raise your hand.
Who knows what does Allah say in the Quran? One verse before this dua raise your hand
Anyone who's not afraid of Iran?
Anyone who's not afraid of Quran who knows what Allah says in the Quran, one was before this.
Allah says in surah Baqarah Chapter number two was number 200. That there are those who pray only for this dunya Allah will give you the dunya but will not give you
then Allah says the believers are those who pray Rabbana Athena Finn dunya has not
been not Oh my Lord, give me the best in this world and Ohana and save me from the torment of hellfire. There is a scholar who rightly said that even in these dua
Allah is teaching us the maximum You asked for this dunya is 1/3
Rabbana Athena fifth dunya give me the best in this world.
But not enough Indonesia was not Orfila Corrado has nothing give me the best in this world and the best in thereafter. And this is the next one and the last one that is saved me from the torment of hellfire. So 134 this dunya next one that is the best in next dunya and the last 1/3 is also saved me from the torment of hellfire. So 230 for the akhira
and 1/3 is for this dunya so the best dua that we have
that Allah has taught us in the Quran is
1/3 years for dystonia and 2/3 for the
last three hood that all those who ask for this dunya we give you the dunya but not Asherah but those who asked for akhira Allah is in this world
please let me inform you that before I start my life and my story let me tell you this talk in no way
the good quality that I have
I don't think I have many in no way is it to list the awards that I got
in Norway it is to talk about my achievement let me tell you all whatever a little bit I have is has I'm in fact Larrabee this is only an only because of my Lord.
Without Allah, I am zero
that is the reason on my whatsapp DP I have only one DP those who have my whatsapp number on my whatsapp
DP I am nothing without Allah.
So let me tell you at the outset doctors hack Ignite is zero.
Whatever little bit that I've achieved in this life is only and only because of Allah subhanaw taala and inshallah you will learn
that if Allah helps you, none can work from you. If Allah had, if Allah forsakes you who is dead then who can help you. This is the verse of the Quran in surah Al Imran Chapter number three was 160 which is number one most important for all Muslims in all activities, whether it be Dawa, whether it be worldly, whether it be akhira Allah says in the Quran in surah Al Imran Chapter number three was 160 If Allah helps you,
none can forsake you.
If Allah helps you,
then can overcome you. If Allah forsakes you who is there, then who can help you. So let the believers let the moment put the trust in Allah subhanaw taala
the success of everything is only an only due to Allah subhanaw taala
I will try my level best in this limited to our that I've got to try and share highlights of some of you know because my experiences mashallah Allah has blessed me with a lot of
experience which is worth sharing, which would take
scores of us more than 25 occurred to me, I'll just say some of them.
I will try and narrate in a chronological order your wife, but sometimes I might have to club few years together and then come back so that the sequence is maintained. But I'll try and narrate my story in a chronological order year wise, but sometimes, you know, MF club a few things together, rather than come back and forth. Again, up and down. So mostly through logical order. Sometimes I'll go ahead and come back again.
insha Allah is Dima level best
to speak about zakat night, my life, my story,
a stamina from a stamina to an Islamic auditor and Hegira from India to Malaysia
I Dr. Abdul Karim NYGH
on the 18th of October 1965 In the city of Bombay, today known as Mumbai, in the state of Maharashtra, in India. Today, I am 56 years, two months and 28 days young
both my parents, they were highly educated.
They were broad minded, and they were practicing Muslims. But even though they were practicing Muslims, they never forced any of us any of my brothers and sisters including me to
follow any of the horizon slang, they never forced us.
But they were practicing Muslims. So my thought that I remember the first time when I observed the first at the age of three or four. It was against the wishes of my parents.
How could a three year old person fast but I wanted to fast and it was against my wishes. I saw my mother praying. I asked to join her.
They never told me to pray and Hamdulillah
we were a part of the Muslim following the pharaohs upgrading from haram
me along with my siblings. We were five two brothers and three sisters.
They are less what my sister Her name was.
A name is Luna rather.
is my elder brother Muhammad.
Then my second sister Nyla my third sister salah, and then me zakat, I was the youngest amongst all five
and being the youngest was a little bit more pampered.
I did my schooling
in St. Peter's High School
and maths gone. Bombay, India.
Though St. Peter's High School was managed by a Christian Protestant organization education organization.
More than 80% of the students were Muslims. It was a quiet School.
And from school days,
used to avoid talking to girls.
I never spoke to any of my classmates or girls, or schoolmates. Not because there was any restriction from the Dean or from Islam. It was my innate nature.
Not to intermingle with
I used to stammer from childhood from the time I can recollect, I used to stammer.
When anyone used to ask me what is your name, I would say my name is Da da da da da da da da ki
i was you could say a born stammer.
Or anything English word stutter. I used to stutter from childhood. And there are different people who stammer some mild some moderate. I was an excessive stammer.
So much so that whenever I used to reply, I used to even jump.
So when someone asked me what variables My name is, da, da da, then like it. So until I did not jump, that keyword would not come up. And I remember many times when I stood below the doorknob, because I was so young. And when I used to stammer, I'm nice to jump. I used to get a lump on my head.
So I was a stammer and everyone knew that. So the biggest defect that was there that I had amongst my friends circle was that I was a stammer. So it was like a psychological block for me.
And in school Mashallah.
I was very good in studies, always got every year awards, books, and are very good in mathematics.
Almost all the years I got the best in mathematics award.
there was a subject in our school,
college public speaking.
And I used to get pF, PF Miss pass fail. Because the teachers used to have pity on me for stammered poor stutter. So we'll just pass fE PF. And I was known. That was my biggest drawback in school, or stammering but otherwise in college, Michelle
I, after I passed my school
I joined the science Junior College. That is Keisha Chang jalaram College, KC College in Churchgate, Mumbai, and I finished my 11th and 12th. I did my science and it was my desire
since school is to become a doctor,
like my father and
become a surgeon. So I did my chain stream. And then I was later on admitted
to the Jawaharlal Nehru Medical College in Belgaum. In Karnataka,
the medical colleges for three academic years, each academic year for one and a half calendar year, so it's a four and a half year studies than one year internship. I finished my first academic year and two terms of the second year and it took transferred to Bombay.
And then I joined the Tokyo National Medical College in Bombay, in Bombay Central, also called as NIH hospital.
So I took a transfer in the second year.
In 1987, I finished med school in 1982. I did two years of my 11th and 12th which is also called as a level then joined the Medical College in 1984. Took a transfer in 1987 and I came back to Bombay
and my father Hamdulillah.
He was a medical doctor, his name.
Dr. Abdul Karim Muhammad Nynke
Rahim Allah, may Allah have mercy on him and me at in Jannah
he was a medical doctor passed his MBBS and he was a psychiatrist, a doctor, you know, three of the mental people. psychiatrist at that time, very few psychiatry for the he was the first Muslim president of the Indian psychiatric association. First Muslim psychiatrist. My father came from a very poor background, a humble background.
There were 14 siblings, seven brothers and seven sisters. And he was the only graduate in his family
then became a doctor. He became postgraduate. He was born in rock tag at
a city in the cocaine region, Maharashtra and Hamdulillah he became one of the most prominent cockney Muslims of his time.
he was so poor, he didn't have money to pay for his school fees, or his medical college fees for what he did. He distributed milk in the morning, he distributed newspaper to earn a few rupees and gather it
and pay the fees.
And my father was proud. He said, You should never be shy, as long as the work you do is honest. And it is not an Islamic. And even I'm not shy to say that my father was the milkman or was a newspaper vendor, I'm proud of it.
hamdulillah after he passed his medical studies, he had a flourishing business. So much so that Allah blessed him
with a lot of a lot of Niyama of this world.
But when my father
when he started earning, he sought to it, he spent a large portion of his income
for the poor, the destitute and the videos. I don't know any needy person who has approached my father and my father did not help him.
My father taught us
Never be extravagant on yourself never.
But spend on education, no problem.
He taught us that invest by helping the poor and the needy.
My father used to say I would never give anyone money to watch a movie. But if you want to buy books, I can give you 10 times more 100 times. He loved traveling.
He went to several countries. He visited most of the major countries in the world attending conferences, seminars, where the religious, whether it be medical,
my father hung out with a philanthropist. He was very well known
for his social activities, for educational activities for the religious institutions. He was the president, the chairman of umpteen numbers of educational institutions,
or social institutions of residence tradition, I can only give a talk on my father's background for a few hours. I don't intend doing that. But in short,
he was very well known so much so that wherever I went, they used to say there is the son of doctor of their caring night.
But a hamdulillah wherever when I started traveling the world,
almost all the countries that I wish someone on the other Noumea father, either he had them for the scholarship fees, or give them hostel facilities, or gave the medical aid and a humble Allah that really pleased us when we traveled throughout the world. This was in brief about my father. My father also had the passion
meeting religious personalities, and even social and political personalities. He knew most of the religious Islamic figures in India and also some abroad.
One of his friends,
but they were blocked Ali Martha from Cape Town, he used to send him video cassettes of chick Emma D does.
And when they came back to Bombay in 1987, we come back to 1987.
I hardly saw about one or two cassettes of Shadab, maybe half 3/4.
shake MD That happened to come to Bombay. And my father tells me
shake Emma DDOT is staying with my friend, why don't you accompany me, we'll go and meet him.
I wasn't really into the ask to meet him. But because my father requested to keep my father happy event. So me and my brother, we accompanied my father to meet shake Amethi that I did not know much about him and seen maybe half of his video when
when I went,
when we entered the house of my father's friend,
we could see the towering personality six foot three feet, Shama did that with a white beard, impressive.
And he told us that I've come to India for a few days,
I had been to Turkish word Surah, the place where shake me did have a bone.
And you will be knowing that at the age of six, he went to South Africa. And that's another long story. We won't touch that. So he came to visit his hometown, the place of boat for a few days. And he was returning back to South Africa.
And he said tomorrow, we went to meet him in the late evening or early night. And he told me tomorrow late night, I'm flying back to South Africa. So my father told him, why don't you give a lecture tomorrow?
So she said, how can you arrange the lecture in less than 24 hours?
We can start the lecture after maghrib and your flight is late in the night. He said Oh, can you arrange
my father's inshallah we'll do it. Imagine at that time in 1987. There was no social media.
There was no mobile.
If you had to do publicity, you have to give an ad in the newspaper that was a few days before,
late in the night. You cannot have ad for tomorrow.
But shake these that. He agreed. He said okay, I'm sorry. I don't mind arrange the lecture.
So my father, my brother and myself. I was only 22 years old that time.
And my father because he was involved as in many institutions, for him to get alternate was very easy.
He booked the ALMA Latifi Hall in Sabah Siddiq in Bombay.
It had a capacity of 800 seats.
But I was wondering, how could we fill 800 people on it.
And Alhamdulillah next day, they were more than 1000 people, they're
not only more than 1000 people, the creme de la creme of the Muslim community of Bombay were there.
The rich businessmen were there. The philosophy for the education is for the, the film stars were the only because of Allah, number one. Number two, the popularity of data. And lastly, because of the context of my father,
Major, my father did hundreds of phone calls, and convinced people to come to check this lecture.
And in less than 24 hours, without any ad, maximum we could do in the morning, print some single color, you know, and stuck it on the walls of the Muslim area.
But the major people that came with a personal contact of my father phoning each one.
And I was shocked to see the creme de la creme
of the Muslim community of Bombay, in large numbers, the whole of the capacity of a tenant, I think there were more than 100,000 people. It was packed.
And she did that told, I'm only concerned about the audio, the audio sound system should be good. And he was impressed.
He gave a talk on the topic, Islam and other religions. And that the first time I heard shake, Amma deedat life, and that was the turning point in my life
in October 1987.
And he was impressed that who are these two young
boys who could organize in less than 24 hours and get more than 1000 people
at that time, so we requested shake the that why don't you come again after a few months, and he agreed to come again in the mid 1988. And that time, he came for approximately 10 or 11 days.
And we organized at lectures office.
And this time, I was more aware of Shaykh Amidon
he had become my icon, he had become my hero. So when the second time that came
and a Hamdulillah we organized the stocks in auditoriums. All of them were packed
on different topics in different topics. Today, they went to Bangalore
and I was the chauffeur. I was his driver everything. And we could find the humility of shake Emma the dad, he stayed in my house in our house. He slept on the floor
and I told him, uncle
Why are you saw aggressive?
He told me son.
I'm not aggressive. I'm militant.
It was Mr. Tang.
there are only two ways you can fight the division. One is with holy water. And the second is a fire. I chose the fire
he did not rebuke me. He told me my son. I'm not aggressive. I'm militant.
And you can fight the devil with the holy water fire. I chose the fire. If somebody can fight with only water is most welcome. I'm finding success in the fire. So I'm doing it.
And that was the turning point in my life.
Only on shake MD that I can speak for maybe five to 10 hours time in our parameters.
Then when he went back, he invited me. I went to South Africa. I stayed at his home.
They told me why don't you attend the International our training program to be held in the end of 1988.
We have got 1000s application. I think he had about 40 seats. But I was doing my medical college second year. I could not take a leave of two months. So I apologize.
I came back to Bombay and my life change. I started doing our I almost memorize all the lectures of shakey done almost all
he had given me a set of more than 50 video cassettes. That time he had 50 sets
I started my Dawa in Bombay and I realized that when I spoke with non Muslims, I never stammered miracle.
When I did Dawa with the non Muslim with the Christian missionaries with the Hindu pundits, I never stammered the moment. I come back and speak with any Muslim same stammering
as he said, What is this?
The moment I start with a non Muslim? No, stammering
I come back home. I speak to my sister. I start stammering I speak to my friends I start stammering
I said a hamdulillah at least while doing Tao I don't stammer.
And I started doing Dawa. Going to church one to one hour with preached
with Pandit and from 1988
to 91 Alhamdulillah that became the major mission.
So much so that I even did Dawa in my Bombay Medical College. Naira hospital. topia Wallah National Medical College and the Muslims are very few hardly about 3% in population we have 14 and a half percent of our detached it's actually more than 20% but in the Medical College we have only 3%
So when asked to do Dawa all my Muslim friends is Ravi
Singh Zakia. Toby marajuana Zakir will have a skill. So when asked to start doing Dawa with the Hindus, my Muslim friends is run away, so as to be alone in the battlefield
Alhamdulillah Alhamdulillah never ever did any non Muslim even catch my collar. While I did Dawa till today, Mashallah.
I even started to endow with my professors and my teachers. So my Muslim friend used to say that in the medical college, there is a separate examination called viva voce, which is always so besides passing in theory, you also have to pass in
orals, viva voce.
So, my friend said, You're doing Dawa with your professors, they will fail you and to fail in viable very easy, there is no record, at least written paper you can do re examination and you can repurpose correct. But if I was there is no re examination and you have to pass separately 50% In Viva and 50% in written exams. So my friend used to tell me that you're doing Dawa with your professors, Hindu professors, they'll fail you, I should tell them if they fail me. Maybe Allah wants me to do one one more Yadava with them.
I was an optimist.
And there was no if they failed me by today. I said if Allah wants me to do, if Allah fails me, maybe Allah wants me to do one more hour with them. And Hamdulillah
I continued my dharma
vision to print my father in many organizations.
So 100 My father funded the complete tour of shamatha. There was on his own, Allah had given him the capacity.
So I told my father, why don't we print check me that book and distributed free. So we printed he had about 17 books, some 10,000 some 15,000 20,000 capacity. And we gave ads in the newspaper and started distributing check that book free.
Then we thought why don't we make a library for distributing shady that
video cassettes to the public? And I told my father, why don't you give me some space we have got so much property. So he gave me a small office of 250 square feet
less than 25 meters.
And I told him, I require 5000 rupees every month from you. You are donating so much outside. Why don't you give me 25,000 Why don't you give me 5000 rupees a month. In today's it would be about 67 US dollars.
At that time, today the dollar at 75 rupees to $1. That time it was 23 rupees. So at that time
it was about 218 US dollars a month.
I told my father you're spending so much money giving charity. Why don't you give me 5000 rupees $218 that is less than
1000 Bring it
Nowadays it will be
maybe it has been 300 during that time it was 1000
and my father told me you want to start religious organization. People will pull your leg will pull you down. But you want to go ahead. You want to try I will support you. So he agreed with that.
So we started a new organization.
And what name should we give
we adoption of giving the same name as organization of Emma deedat Islamic Propagation Center International. But we thought giving the name propagation in the Hindu majority country will not be hikma. So we chose the name Islamic Research Foundation.
And we started the organization in a small place of less than 25 square meter with a budget of 5000 rupees
in today's time $67 At that time, $218 a month.
It was maybe one of the smallest organization and we started it.
what we did initially, I had one friend of mine
was also a medical doctor in the United field. Dr. Schiff said he was quite popular in speaking amongst the Christian missionaries.
So I thought he donator we will create a platform for other people to speak because I was a stammer, how could I speak?
I couldn't have dreamt of speaking in front of 25 people.
So what we used to do, we used to call students from engineering college and other colleges in groups of 2530. And we used to show them clippings of different speakers from the world
and add hobby of collecting all video cassettes of Islamic speakers, maybe for about half an hour to one hour. And then we had open question answer session for the first program we had in the office. When we showed the video cassette I told my friend Dr. Shave your speaker going into the question answer session, he went the first time he got cold feet.
What to do?
People are waiting. I took the courage and event. I took his place.
And I realized that on the stage. I don't remember.
It was a miracle.
On the stage when I started speaking,
no timer. When I came down from the stage, again, I'm stammering
normally the best of speakers when they come on the stage, they stammer
so to stammer is coming on the stage. But me being an extreme stammer on the stage I never stammered.
And that's how
I first time appeared in public in front of 25 people
handling the question answer session, and I realized that it clicked they asked me questions you answer and I was very good in debating and arguing.
In the school and college days, I was known for my logic and argument if skill, so much for that. If they said prove black to be white, I could prove black to be white, I could put day to night, our expert in arguing.
Now, I'm using this skill
to present Islam to present the UK
this was a change in my life.
And I had a hobby and a passion to meet the various Islamic speakers of the world. And if I only talk on that, it will be 10 of us as they speak about the experience of the second speaker or second personality who had a great impact on my life. And that was Dr. Israa. Ahmed.
Teresa, may Allah grant him Jana.
He was one of the best Urdu speaking orators in the world that I know of.
So I traveled all the way to Pakistan in 1991. To meet Dr. Sri Ahmed, he was a medical doctor. He wasn't trained in any Islamic Institute or Islamic University, you as a medical doctor inspired by Modi Jamaat e Islami when notably Gemma they started her own organization bendable Islam.
I went to Lahore to meet him.
And I was shocked at the simplicity
the command that he has, or the Quran
He also speaks in English but mainly in Urdu.
I was impressed by so I purchased all his video cassettes
and added to the video cassette library.
And to cut the story short.
I learned many things from him. I'll just mention two important things I learned. Number one he told me
that I told about my background. I'm a medical doctor. I've just passed away now
In 2001, I finished my medical studies and I was doing my internship. When we started the organization in 1991. In 1990, I finished my American Studies. For one year there was internship and during internship, I had more time. So we started the organization. So I told him, I've just finished my medical studies, I would like to do, I'd like to become a surgeon, do my MS. And I'm interested in Dawa. So, he told me son, you have to choose between the two.
Either you choose your medical practice or our
i being a medical doctor, I practice for seven years and try to do both, I could not if you want to specialize, choose between the two one thing
then after guidance, I chose
to become a DI.
The second thing I learned from him was
he told me that if you want to become a DI C to it, that you make your personal needs the minimum I said why? He said if you make your personal need the minimum with the least amount of monthly requirement, you can speak the truth more easily.
You won't have to depend on
you will not depend on Please someone who's paying your salary See to it that your needs are the least
and I thought that he had for the big institution, but what a simple man Dr. SRM Nalgonda Jana
and this thing that not to spend excessively
was one of the cornerstone of my success
just in case I forget
towards them me tell you but today I require only 2000 ringgit a month for me and my wife to survive only 2000
Very comfortably, not from activity though activity who have traveled fly, I pay my own money that's different. That may be large amount, but for my personal needs 2000 ringgit is sufficient
in Bombay for 40,000 rupees
yet is 2000 sufficient, inshallah time permits come to it later on. So these two things I learned from Shama, DITA
when I came back,
I told my parents initially when we started the organization, Islam to the foundation, I told my parents, I will only be giving two hours a week because once I finished my internship, when I joined
the MS surgery, I have to be the 24 by six or six and a half. Maybe I get half a day in a week free. So I spent some time with my family in two hours in this organization.
But then I decided I will not do my post graduation.
I told my parents, I want to give two hours a day for the hour. And the balance time for medical practice. My father had a writing practice. My older brother, Dr. Mamba, Nick also was a doctor.
And my brother, he was a very good orator, to win shake me at that game. He was the emcee because he was the secretary general of his medical college. Very good orator, not Islamic speaker, but general auditor.
So that's how she did that was impressed.
So I told my parents two hours, Dawa remaining medical practice. After a couple of months, I said 50% our 50% medical practice, they said no problem. Then I said to medical practice remaining Dawa. They said no problem. Then after maybe a year or so. I said full time Dawa. They said no problem.
I was involved in the setting up of the Diagnostic Center
which was very lucrative.
It was 50% partner, myself and my brother. My brother told me don't worry about this. I will take care of it. You do your job, I will give you a 50% 50% is a no no, I will give you 50%
It is your the you do Yadava so Inshallah, my brother Dr. Mohammed will get most of up than me. He said go ahead.
So in the initial stages of Dawa I had no problem whatsoever about funding.
I asked my father to give me 5000 rupees a month it became 10,000 20,000 30,000 50,000 a month. I never asked any money nine more than 95% of the funding of the dollar for the first several years was by my father
never had any problems.
the first talk I gave was in 1992
as you're wishing me dad didn't carry note some time did take some sips, but generally without notes. So the first talk I gave in my life falls is the Quran, God's Word in the office small office
could accommodate about 5060 people.
And I memorize, I wanted to give a one hour talk. So I memorized first time in my life. And I give the talk.
The talk went on for approximately three hours, I was inexperienced. Without notes, I spoke for three hours talking about the scientific miracles, about various research I did is the Quran God's word, it was literally less than three hours
a marathon lecture, I thought it would be one hour
that was the first lecture of my life.
It was in the audience of 50 people. And then he started then we started having public calls.
For a few 100, then few 1000 then the numbers kept on increasing.
I had that philosophy at that time, that a person should get married at the age of 25 best each little 27 days or 25, I started
finding a life partner, I could not find any. My only two criteria was she should be a day and she should do English.
I was interested in beauty wasn't interested in wealth wasn't interested in nobility only virtue, she should be virtuous
and knows English. So in the whole city of Bombay, I could not find anyone. Then one of the family friend told me that there is a girl in Puna, which is the city 160 kilometers from Bombay.
So me, my mother and my wife without telling that girl without telling her. We just visited the house, you know
without telling him
to try and find out. What if she
and we went there and the mother welcome and
no, we're not doing why we came there. We said asking you for the love activities. At that time. I thought I was doing something wrong. Headingley going to see a girl I thought was wrong, I thought was a minor sin. But now we realize that a prophet said with the sunnah to go and look at the color of the Mary and there were Savas
who saw the girl able to marry hiding Lee so it's permitted in Islam.
That term I thought it was you know, maybe wrong. It's unethical.
Masha Allah. When we came to know about her, I was impressed never ever did I see any girl. This is the first girl
because my sister used to
first to the interview, we don't do unnecessary meet girls to marry the first girl I met. And I was impressed. And she did not know about it. So therefore I joke with my wife that you know, I started loving you before you say loving me.
And I tell her that I'm ahead of you in love.
In other things, okay in taqwa in Islam, she may be harder than me when I find a love is confined. I love you more than what you love me. She says no, she loves me more than me. So I said we will do this up with Amina inshallah
so Masha Allah my wife, she was the president of the girls Islamic organization of Puna.
And she used to give talks and she was fluent in English. She was the lecturer in the college. And I said yes, this is a relevant virtuous mashallah, Taqwa. And we got married. People don't okay now that you got married now, you will give less time for our previously as to give about nine other date and other day. When I got married, I started giving 12 to 13 hours. When diagram she came, which tie the ladies organization
first, Islam with the foundation didn't have a ladies when I got married on the 16th of May 1993, a very simple marriage
in a mosque. At that time, it was well known that people give big receptions. And my father being well off and very well known. I made it a point and my wife to wanted a very simple nigra. So we only had a nica and a mosque and we only gave
dates that also dried dates. It was a very simple marriage because our beloved Prophet said, Make Nica simple. So that dinner would become difficult.
And the best marriages that in which the least expensive is made. So we had a very simple liquor
and Masha Allah, they were more than 2000 people from Africa, not because of me, because of my father.
The only thing we spent was, you know, sending invitations.
And mashallah more than 2000 in a mosque it was unheard of, for Nicaragua, and heard in 1983.
And then we had olema. Very simple. We only called 19 people, direct brothers, sisters of mine, and brothers, sisters, and their spouses, from my wife's side, only 19 people.
And we called 50 People from the orphanage. But the prophet said in the walima, they should be poor people. So 50 people or more finished 19 relatives of me and my wife, we hardly spend 3000 rupees on the Vailima That's it
would be 1800 Ringgit.
So to give an example,
and when my wife and I did scheme, we, we kept them in marriage. So we put beddings on the floor, we could have booked the best of five star hotel, we could afford it. But we wanted to make the marriage very simple. So much so that we save the money, what we could spend on the marriage, and we bought the new office for the organization.
And that was
And it grew, mashallah
for what we could spend millions of ringgit on the wedding which normally is done, compared to the status that we had. We spent that money in
buying an office.
I said I don't want the house for myself, I want often for the organization and that over investment.
And this organization, Islam is the foundation
And we'll come to it later on.
the 10th of July,
about one year, two and a half months later, after the marriage on 10th of July
My son, FEYERICK was born.
And we asked an Arabic scholar I want the name which is like a unique name. So we give them an emphatic FEYERICK means to differ between the UK and battle.
The truth, again, falsehood,
a unique name,
fame, like far off.
And after Farik was born, he was hardly to enough months. And we went to MIT check Emma deedat. In 1994, we went to meet chick Emma dita.
And Farik was two and a half months old. And you could have we have the photograph of shake did that carrying my son Farik.
And he blessed him.
And we can see the results of his daughter.
At that time, I give my first lecture abroad in South Africa, in the great St. Durban mosque. It was it was the largest most
of South Africa. And the person sitting in front of me, watching Emma did that.
And I was nervous that she would either lift into my talk.
And after the talk, he gave me
a certificate calling me deedat plus in 1994.
And I said Surely this man is great. He wants to encourage me. Therefore he called me up I was nothing.
Then asked his son that has your father given this title to anyone else? He said no. You're the only person I thought maybe you know to encourage youngsters. People try and give. You said no.
I said what did she do that seen me? That he gave me this title.
And in the great mosque there were more than 1000 people that maybe a few 1000 People mashallah for the Juma salah.
And he told me, son,
you're coming from India, you have large audiences. When you go to Saudi Arabia, Gulf countries expect only five or 10 people.
Maybe in the mosque, maybe in the university. Don't expect hundreds and 1000s of people like we have in India.
So expect on
Five people 10 people and then slowly slowly Inshallah,
later on you may get popularity.
So when I went to give my first talk after Durban in 1996
In the beginning of 1996 the first talk I gave in Jeddah, I was expecting about 10 to 15 people. And mashallah for the first talk in Jeddah, there were more than 1000 people. I was shocked. Then I realized some people had copied my video cassette, and they distributed it had only given three, four lectures. It became viral, and Saudi Arabia is the hub, people from all over the world come to work there, from USA, from Canada, from UK, from Malaysia, you have from Australia, all over the world, people come and work there. So from there, it became viral throughout the world. And I started receiving invitations from throughout the world.
That was how I started my international talks.
while I was doing a hedge with my wife,
we were supposed to go to multi DEXA after hedge, I received the information that check me deedat
Allah, may Allah Jana DOS, he received a stroke.
And he was paralyzed.
I immediately canceled my trip. I told my wife go back to Bombay. I went to the South African Embassy, stamped a visa and I was the first person from abroad to visit shake me, domini got the stroke,
and you're hospitalized.
Then his son requested me. His name is useful data that my father is supposed to give a series of talks in Cape Town, can you replace him? I said, How can I give in place of your father? He said no, the program is organized people will come and I went to Cape Town. And I gave the talks on behalf of chick Emma died in 1996.
And then later on, I kept visiting him a
few times. And I remember
in 2020 When I went and check Mr. Diaz favorite pastime, after he got the stroke was watching my video cassettes.
So when I went to meet him again in 2020
when he saw me try to cry, and we used to communicate via the eyes. You know, because the person who's in coma who cannot move around when hemiplegia there is a method of communication, there is a chart,
line number one ABCDE, line number two,
f g h i j, line number three, it goes on. So if you want to communicate, if he has to say I want to he blinks per second line, F, G H, I blink for every letter you can spell by blinking your eye.
So I was communicating with me that I want to give you a message and give that message to me.
And that message to time. And his son was there.
He said, Son, my son, what you have achieved in four years, has taken me 40 years to achieve Alhamdulillah.
And then his son took a plaque. And he printed this with his thumbprint. In 2020 May.
Son what we have achieved in four years had taken me 40 years to achieve Alhamdulillah and that was the biggest award that I got in my life. Shake MD does himself.
When he was sick, he gave that out to me. He blinked with the blinking of his eyes he communicated with the thumb impression. Son what you achieved in four years had taken me 40 years to achieve.
And this was because
if you remember I'd asked him
uncle Why are you so aggressive? He said a militant
you can fight the devil in two ways with the holy water or with fire. And when I met Sheikh did that in the initial part of my Dawa I was multiple times more aggressive multiple times more militant
because young blood
knows I'm young myself.
But that time I was younger. And I didn't talk with my students with my classmates with my teachers.
I got results but are they happy with it? Is it same Metro shake these are shady that is X amount Minute and I'm teknicks Why did also less? Then I changed then I became soft.
But when I became soft, the new
Oh, this is a lion a lion need not roar.
The king of the jungle need not rose. So I had a mixture. I could be more militant in the dark, I could be a softer shade like Dr. Jamal but we, you know, so I,
I had a different style, being humble when required in debate be militant. So I gave him one of my lectures on similarities between Islam and Hinduism.
And they, you know, some of the Hindus
belong to some hardcore fanatic organization, they come and attack you, they're cursing me and I'm smiling and they India brother and shady that said, My son, how can you smile when they're causing you?
So, I told him, You fought the devil with fire, I'm fighting with holy water.
At that time, he gave me this black sun, what we have achieved in four years had taken me 40 years to achieve. So, then I developed a style you should be as militant and shake DDOT more militant, be soft, be humble, be logical. So, I saw many speakers all the whole time do not permit me to speak about them. variety of speakers we are the largest video cassette library in the world at that time, about four or 5000 and I have to see various speakers logic reason did my own study, it was a variety
shady Davao the person who changed me from a doctor for body to doctor office soul
and Dr. Salim was inspired me to leave my profession, to these two people were the main people who were the inspiration.
in the end of 1996, on the fourth of November 19/95,
my second child, my eldest daughter, secara, she was born.
And after she was born,
next month, it was my first talk, because in Bombay the order in the limited the biggest Auditorium in Bombay had 3000 capacity. So, the audience started increasing, we hired a hall of 2000 4000 people came sitting outside. So then we decided from now onwards, we will not have lectures in the hall, we will have an opening grounds. So it was the first lecture of mine in open ground. In the same Institute, we say that gives a detail given the auditorium in Subotic, I gave in the sub was in the ground, and we had put 6000 seats, and martial light was packed. The first public lecture in open ground was in December 1996. And I remember from there,
I went to Singapore. And then I came to Malaysia. The first time I came to Malaysia, on the invitation. I think the name of the person was Iskander. Abu Lys, candor.
The Mullah, he called me and we started with the military from different parts of the world. And I said let's travel. So I did not know this person, I came here and then I gave talking, I've been I've been here I've been to Kuala Lumpur and different parts. I think it was in Penang, and that was my first trip to Malaysia, and I was impressed with Malaysia.
Then I came back in 1998 then 2000 2001 2004 And I kept on coming regularly. We'll come to it later
now when she Emma dieses got the stroke he continued doing is over from the bed but had seen all his videos and most of it I memorize now what to do
then I started doing an introspection of myself
an area realize that I've got three major drawbacks
I have not gone to any Islamic University
nor Islamic school nor Islamic College National University when I'm giving talks 1000s are coming 10,000 are coming
I don't know Arabic as the language number two
and a half of the Quran many people think I'm African I'm not so I decided that inshallah all my children I will see to it that they pass from an Islamic International University. I see to it that they learn Arabic law fossa as a language I see to it that all are halfway through Quran that was my aim
I said okay, fine.
I should learn Arabic language now I'm already know I can go back to institute now.
I went to Makkah and one of the local department teacher,
Marana I spent one month with him a little bit. Then I said I want to learn under the best teacher in the world.
Then when I did my research, I came to know the best teacher to teach Arabic to a non Arab was Dr. Farr Abdur Rahim
who was the head of the legal department of Islam, University of Medina. I did not know him.
I went to meet him, people told impossible. He is so popular. He doesn't. He teaches PhD student Mahila give you time.
Head of the Department of Medina city. I said, what the Hammond trying. So I took an appointment and I went to meet him. And I said, you know, I'm so and so person. I'm inspired by these and listening, listening. He said, People told me are the best teacher. So can you give some time? Is it possible? So he smiled.
He said Dr. Zakir, do you know give a lecture in Medina, a few months back I said, Yes. I was sitting on the first row. I said, I don't know. And I'm impressed with your talk. What do you want? I said, I want you to give me a few hours a day.
And I want you to tell me how much time will I take? He said, according to me, you give me five months, I will give you five hours a day, five hours a day one to one. I was like have I'm in fourth grade, the best teacher in the world,
the best color and when I sat with him, he was an ocean of knowledge. He knew more than 1718 languages.
I went to Medina. And I said I would stay there for five, six months.
immediately after her after lunch after maghrib time, robber five and our first mind is the time of us a time in between half an hour, five hours every day. But I had my nature
of asking questions. So more than learning as to asking questions. And because in my field of Dawa, I had been to so many anti Islamic sites
that are coming together in the Quran. And this person was a true scholar, originally Indian from Chennai.
Then did his master the PhD in Oliver then started the lava department in Medina city. And his knowledge was
PAREXEL. I learned many things from him. So instead of learning Arabic, I'm more interested in No, do this to that, or this or that, you know, this was 30 gametic errors, and he should tell me how to answer.
I thought okay, six months are they let me finish? In the first two three weeks about my question then there is time for me.
He had three books, book one, Book Two, Book Three. I learned a lot. And from him I learned he used to tell me
I am a Muslim. I'm not Hanafy I'm not Shafi. I'm not humbly I'm not Maliki I'm not philosophy I'm a Muslim. Allah says in the Quran, call in an eminent Muslim and and that stuck to my mind.
He told Allah verses in the Quran Quran if you're a chef, you're humble, you're a molecular Salafi,
you should laugh and the command yet
he was my first official teacher, there were the teachers of Dean.
whatever I learned from him became as though I wouldn't have gained even if I hadn't PhD. Because that became my weapon. That became
you know, power for me. When I spoke with other scholars, when I give it they didn't know they were scholars of the field of Hadith, but they didn't know Luca. I spoke with Adam They did not know the unfetter mod he told me being oriental Indian because he was an expert. Allah says in the Quran, first Allah Allah Vickery in gundula Tala moon, if you don't know as the person who knows, so then hell chapter 16 is a 43 and should Ambia chapter number 21 Verse number seven.
So he was an ocean of felt.
I met my second grade teacher,
that is shake Dr. CRM and asked me was also an Indian.
Dr. Bob Dylan used to stay with him on the ground floor. He used to stay on the first floor and being an Indian even he knew me. So I told shake the other man I mean, he was the head of
the Medina, new city, Dean of the Arabic dean of the department, so to speak on foreign theory, and I can speak for two hours to speak about Shakespeare Rahman as a new as a scholar of Hadith. I can speak for us to get
to cut it short, he agreed to give me for us twice a week.
And my basic of Hadith was with Dr. Dr. Mannesmann, he was Hindu you as a Brahmin became Dean, and then he compiled the Jama Carmel Jamaica mill is one of the unique work all the sadita together I can speak an arrow Jamaica just record a short there is no compilation of all the together sable Heidi fee but all Hadith under what he did because as to question him, Doctor we talk about Quran Hadith very the Hadith.
Okay, Alma needed sake
Bukhari Muslim saya without saying this I
say Timothy, but all these are not there. He said yes.
So he couldn't answer to me. But after he retired, his mission became to compile all the CR dt and mashallah all my support and was with it and he was able to complete in about 18 to 20 years, he compiled all the say Hadith and remove the duplicate 16,546 Hadith.
Then we have a summarized version, we are doing the translation Inshallah, the English version would be completed in a couple of months, and the print would be out by the end of this year. time doesn't permit him to speak about that, but my basic of Hadith knowledge came from Nazi Germany. Unfortunately, after about three and a half weeks, less than a month, I got a call from Bombay, that I had to go back to Bombay immediately so that I could not complete my
my Arabic language course did finish two books with him. But the third book was the volumes I went back and then got involved other activities. So these two were the initial two teachers in my life.
And after that, I met Alhamdulillah
as my passion was to meet the toughs all over the world
to cut it short, I met shake bars ramola in the 1998 at that time, the three top scholars at that time check the numbers, check now simple money and check with me. So my passion I met a grandmother couldn't meet, then his secretary, check look man selfie. He knew me then introduced me we had a one to one meeting for us together and advises mashallah time would permit me.
And chagrin bar has expired on the 13th of May 1999.
Maybe a few months or a year after I met him, and sicknesses Albani. He expired on the second of October 1999, the same year after a few months.
Oh, two grades column one together. Now the third one remaining ship with me. First to go to the Arabia in the year, twice or thrice. Every time some time for them fight I'm not in a coma. Right from 1987 or more than 20 years 21 years at a coma.
So in in in the year 99. I wanted to meet
she was I mean, he was not in town
in 2010 in the year
2000 In 99 Out of 20 late 2000 event. He was sick in hospital and unfortunately in January 2001 on the 10th of January Showtime me mela Gandhi Jana even he explained it was my bad luck I could not meet him
the next best call of that time living or shake up the green I should not miss him. So I made sure of that green great scholar and
from right from 2005 678 multiple times I met him he was a great source of knowledge at that time shake up the leverage you Breen was one of the best living scholar
if I had any difficulty any fatwa
and as to communicate with him to one of my friend
Shiva Monza honey was a pilot
and you have a great day Mashallah. And even now he's alive. So you are my main communication with all the scholars and shake up the Lebanese you bring give a fatwa
about Peace TV or come to it later on that Peace TV. You can use the money for jihad, and the best jihad is the judge with the media. And he gave a fatwa that you can give to Peace TV in 2000
617 And every year we have to meet him a few times mashallah and spend a lot of time with him. And mela random Jana, he expired in 2009. July, she got burned up. This is just to give you a brief time is running short. I had a passion of meeting scholars, whether it be Salafi via that behind a fee, and the best Indian scholar at that time was Maulana Alima nadvi. He was the most renowned Islamic scholar of India all over the world, including Gulf country. He was known for his books on literature.
He was the person who was given the second award.
The second person who was the king Pfizer award after Modi was Milan Elementary.
And he also got the first award of the Holy Quran international award. He was the only Indian at that time to receive both these awards. There are no Indian who received this award. There was no Indian receiving Pfizer award he was only one
there was no Indian who received the Holy cow nordregio The second award he was only Indian.
And he was well known.
And he was supposed to my father. We met many times we discussed I learned a lot from him. I met mon aboukir Empire, he was under the Hanafi Mowlana
and I was the closest to him very close to him and a lot of experience. Then, the other person I remember was called the Mujahideen Islam mashallah excellent in Mantic in logic, you're the judge. You're the jurist mashallah, Quasimodo customer these are great names from India. Then, I met Salim Kusmi was head of the urban so because I did not go to any particular madrasah My mind was in, you know, blocked, I met Hanafi scholars, Deobandi nadvi Salafi and broadminded mashallah
and I used to meet any scholar but mashallah the main guideline was Quran and Sunnah.
Time is only short.
in the year
On the 26th of February, my third child was born, my second daughter, that is rich.
And I told my wife that our beloved Prophet said if you bring two daughters with love and affection, till they mature inshallah you will be Jana close to the Prophet. So I said good after Rita was born, inshallah maybe they will be a Jana
and all these names that you find Sakura was again given man of the Arabic scholar rooster was given by Dr. FOB the remaster I want the name which is a die name, a unique name and name for Dawa. So Farik is first between Huck and battle Zika same exact lady with a thicker, rich dies, one who gives guidance and Alhamdulillah all these words had impact
on my children, and Mashallah.
We started a school, my son was admitted in the same school where I was St. Peter's High School, a Christian missionary school. But
we wanted to it was my desire to make an institution, which is education for both the worlds and we started the Islamic International School.
And whoever I met, they said it is impossible. How can you have been in dunya together in the same school? Impossible, and I met many scholars, all of them 100% They said not possible except for Doctor father him. Doctor father him said it is very difficult.
But it's possible.
And we started the summer International School, I've given the talk of about three and a half hours on that. I'm not permitted to speak about it. I mean, basic was when a person passes from the school, he should be better than an average person passing from mother who's an alum.
And you should be better than a person who does a level from Cambridge. So we had a school recognize, you know, a school with a survey team from Cambridge a level recognized it's the most organized system in the world.
And we taught Arabic From the age of nursery, three years, two and a half years
and we are graduate from Medina and city teaching
Zakia How can we teach Arabic I said if Allah can you do it or not? So my my key master key was if Allah with you can you do it or not? And that way, mashallah, we started, we taught Arabic From the age of three. We did have the of the Quran 1/3 of the people were Hafiz. They could quote Quran Chapter number was number. We had faked Hadith in English and Arabic.
And my intention was that 50% apart
From the school, they will go in the mainstream become doctors, engineers, lawyers, you know, but Muslim man Muslim practicing lawyers, engineers, doctors and 50%, dies, teachers, etc. The first batch of students there were about 14 boys and girls, I don't remember from 14 Boys, half of them into the mainstream. Seven of them. We got them admitted to my mama.
My mama's university, my mama has been sold University and according to me, the best Islamic University in the world according to me.
You know, the more famous is the medina University, Islamic Medina, but according to me, because Islamic University of Medina 50% of the students are foreigners 50% of Saudi Imam Mohammed bin sold less than 1% of foreigners so non Saudi can't get admission very difficult. But Alhamdulillah Allah help was the prod the dean, he knew me he gave admission to all seven without examination all seven
so all seven shouldn't mashallah went and my son mashallah, last year in December sorry.
year before last in 2020 December he passed from
a my mom is out from the shadow field, Mashallah. And now he's doing his master's in iru. I said that, you know, graduation is fine, but many practical lava and with me maybe he will promote our than four. I told him not to continue in Saudi now taking admission into
Islam, University of Medina 30 Islamic militia. I am and he's doing his master the fic and Russell effec. My daughters, they passed recently from the princess Noura University. They finish the bachelor in Islamic Studies. All three of them are shall have the Quran, but among the three
my youngest daughter rich, the She's phenomenal. Her have this phenomenal anytime she can decide. One day she should start from Fudger after fajr by Asara Maghreb, she finished the full Quran without any mistake Mashallah. So Allah has given her the power of his mashallah and she stumbles, not like as much as me but she does.
So each child of mine has their own speciality Farik is more well versed with giving public lectures Zika is good the Quran she has more passion and love for all three of them have their own qualities all three of them them they know Luca fossa very well. They have a through Quran all of them are bachelor from Islam University, all of the maintained doing the Masters and PhD inshallah.
So we started the school
that was one of my projects of life. Then, my second project of life was to have an Islamic satellite channel
and with all the other channels and we started pitch TV, mashallah in January 2006, will on pitch TV English in January 2006. Time is short as the restroom
will be January launched in 2009 2011. We launched the pitch TV, Bangla and pitch TV Chinese Mandarin in 2015. Each one of the study each channel I can speak for few hours time will not permit me a Hamdulillah we became the largest religious network in the world having a viewership of 200 million people mashallah 200 million viewers. We covered the full globe in 2016. Only PhD English are more than 100 million viewers. PhD viewed more than 80 million viewers, pitch TV Bangla and more than 50 million viewers and PhD with Chinese had more than 20 million viewers.
And it was the first high definition religious channel in the world even earlier than the Christian missionary channels. In July 2009. We launched the first HD logician and now all four HD mashallah
I had a dream that we should have the best equipment in the world for Islam. And we did that we had the best of cameras people said this person is us. I said this you know Allah as best as
I can own even rose right. But my Rose was on my camera.
Each camera costing more than a million ringgit one camera more than a million Ringgit. We are hidden cameras. Mashallah. So this was my rose Ray. But
in 2005, I changed my policy. I said no, I don't want to have the best equipment for for Video Broadcast. No.
I said I want to have the best equipment for film telecast.
So in 2005, we went to Japan, we went to Sony and we said we want to buy cameras 15 days clearly
15 cameras film camera I mean where are you coming from? Sony Japan was shocked normally film gamma film the shot with one camera is there the fight sequence three camera four camera? Why do you own 15 cameras maybe understand? Or do you have more money as a no no no. My logic is that if you shoot with the best book best video cameras today it can be in the world for maximum for five years.
After four years you can obsolete that the reason she did that use the best cameras but what he shot in 2000 The Last Lecture give 1996 In the year 2000 became obsolete. So when I want to teleca shake deja vu on my pitch TV only to upgrade 200 hours I spent more than a million dollars and then right on my channel poor quality sorry.
The does use the best cameras of his time. So in 2015, I changed my policy. I will not use the best camera for video, I will use the best camera in the world for film and short on video. I said what is the logic? The logic is if I shoot a scholar, I can have his video telecast for next 50 years.
Now check this out. I cannot show on piece TV I'm showing but with poor quality.
If I if we had used some camera for saying this that even today would have been 8k. So we bought 4k cameras, 8k cameras, and it was
on the Sony website. There is no production house in the world, which owned the cameras which we owned.
We believed in quality and the cost was only a small percentage. Why? Because there's a cost for labor, there's a cost for telecast, the equipment cost is there. But if I divided I'm spending only 5% more and I'm securing the footage for the next 50 years.
I like gave us mashallah success and we kept on growing.
The other thing that had in mind and my desire was
to have a conference manage to see Grammy Awards Oscar award, what technology they have got lighting cameras, but majority haram
so why can't we use this technology for Halal means?
I'm running short of time.
So why can't we use
because lighting is not haram? Cameras not haram. Most of the things done on the camera haram that's different. But Chimera per se is not haram lighting is not haram. So when
I said if I can't be Muslim, use these good stages. So I said let me Yeah, Allah I pray to Allah. Let me at least do one conference with this good stage. So in 2007 What we did, I invested in some Islamic stocks, and in one year I made more than a million dollar profit.
And then we had this conference, the cost of the conference was of course $4 million. And we did this conference phenomenal with the best of cameras lighting stage, and people were shocked.
We called 20 best English speaking, do some all over the world.
And including Shaykh Hussein, he was dead.
you can ask him most of the people who came to America use a vestige and all what is this
and when we showed them it was all white cloth. What is is white white.
In the day when they find the evening, it was lit up with multi colors with the best and they were shocked. And they gave interviews that never in the life we attended such a conference.
And everything was free. It was telecast throughout the world. The software is yet there. Then we had the second conference in 2018. Then the third conference 2009 In English then 2010 2011 Every conference we had one imam from haram.
The first conference we had shake mama you were from your mom of Medina mosque of Medina be second conference we are shake Salah there, again from the Navi then we are other Kobani we are Shake, shake, shake so this was supposed to come, he couldn't come then shake shake him again the second time. And again I can speak for maybe 510 other conferences.
Allah brushed it for the desire. You want to have it once it became so good that when we showed people they said can we be part of it?
Part of it means no then we made a documentary and the documentary became viral. So everyone started with can we be as everything is free. So because of this martial law
We started receiving support phenomenon.
as I said, we started small.
We started giving lecture then a small haul of mine then went outside few 1000. In three, four years, it became in Bombay 6010 1000. Then the audience kept on increasing in Bombay, then the audience in the conferences for my talk went up to 200,000.
The largest gathering I gave was in kishanganj, in 2012, where there were more than a million people live.
It was the largest gathering of any religious speaker in the world. It's a record 1 million people live and it is not. It is a single speaker and that's not hypothetical. It's not hypothetical. It was actual.
a humble Illa Allah blessed has been fuzzier have been
imagined imagine I could not have dreamt of speaking in front of 25 people in my dream. In my dream, I could have dreamt of becoming the best doctor in the world, but I couldn't have dreamt of becoming speaking in front of 25 people. And yeah, Allah makes it possible.
And Alhamdulillah Summa hamdulillah in the full life of my dava we never charged a single penny for any of our activity.
In the first few years, it was mainly funded by my family
and wish to give a percentage, and Allah blessed
when I left my medical practice, I was at 50%, Butner I started doing my own business. I used to spend on average, two days a month, a few hours a week, maybe less than 24 days a year, and you still earn millions of dollars halaman
and whatever Western wish to see to it, that we used to make Allah a bigger partner than us.
So minimum we started initially was 51% of what we earn, we gave in charity,
then kept on increasing I won't tell you that between me and Allah, but I tell people, that if you want to make a liar partner, make him the major shareholder, not the minor shareholder.
If Allah the shareholder of your business, who will take care of your business?
I tell everyone, tell my staff what to even if you want 1000 ringgit start with 10% in the way of Allah, Allah will make it 2000 Then give 15% Then give 20% The more you give, the balance with you percentage will be less but the amount will be more. And I'm the living example.
We never use Dawa even to earn a single penny never ever
even all the awards that we got 100% What we got we gave it for worth
when Allah is giving us directly why should we agreed taking salary for Dawa is not haram at all? It is Dyess
please don't get me wrong. But then Allah give you directly Why do you recall take a salary
we never had problems
the moment that kept on increasing the share of Allah the balance with me kept on becoming more
but what I spent on myself was very less I learned from lottery ceramill What do you spend on yourself will be minimal? What do you spend for Dawa do it so whenever we traveled it's the policy initially in the first few years yes main organizer these two callers they used to give us a ticket I have to say only economy
after a few years first condition if I come to give talk I will pay for my ticket I will pay for my hotel till now.
If you pay for my ticket I will not come except if it's a government invitation if I'm called by Saudi Arabia I cannot argue with the king but if it's any prince calling me you know once the browser opens into law, he called me I said I'll come okay, we'll book a ticket for you I said for you cannot will book the best passport and therefore you cannot if you want me to come I pay for my ticket I pay for my hotel
live giving directly so why should you
those who can't afford the thing ticket today? What do you have in the world? I will only come for the lecture if you give me 1000 US dollars and only come with a ha forgive $2,000 What is this? demanding money
as a salary okay? But if you don't give money, you know people offered me for one one lecture big amounts. I said impossible. It's my condition that if you call me you cannot charge any money unless it's the conference.
My condition became you call me you cannot charge money. If you have less money I will pay you
so we never earned even a single penny even the teacher
had in my organization being the president, I paid for that. It did a lot to ft. But I didn't want Allah to say, Okay, I have donated so much naughty money. I appreciate that.
If we used any staff for any of my private work, I paid a salary. So many of my staff are paid by me personally because sometimes this to work for me.
I didn't want any of my sabab to be reduced.
What people think, okay, you're doing dava has blessed me a lot. Even if I'd been the best doctor, I would and I want so much.
Investment in shares did Yana state chartered a mobile whatever we did, we were profit. I hardly spent less than two days in a month.
And Allah blessed us.
But the major shareholder of all my business is Allah.
Tammy shot, I'll just mention one more thing that we were listed in India in 2009. There was the 100 most powerful men of India by one of the leading newspapers Indian Express, in 2009. They listed me as at second most powerful, I don't know how they came to know in 2009 at second and in the spiritual gurus, I was number three in 2010. all over India, I became 89 most powerful, there was no Muslim religious person in this list anytime.
There was a Muslim actors, you know, Shahrukh Khan, Salman Khan, but no Muslim
religious personality Hinduja Spinney in 2010.
In the spiritual gurus, it was Rambo Baba, number one in 2009, she should be Shanga to I was third. In 2010, they became more than me I became first so they didn't publish the list only.
in in a YouGov research, they have the most the person who's most popular. So in Pakistan in 2014, the YouGov list, I was the sixth
most revered person Pakistan,
there was Bill Gates, Barack Obama, and the Prime Minister was number seven Nawaz Sharif.
in the 500 most influential
people in the world, from 2011 till 2021. Always mashallah, in the most honorable, they give a list of 50 top people, then 10 people who miss the list, then 15 people who miss the list, So alhamdulillah from 2011 to 2021, for 11 years continuously. I was in the list of honorable mentions. Then in 2019, there was a list of all over the world, the 100 most people who collectively worked for 10 years, and they ranked me 79 I don't agree with this ranking.
I don't agree with this ranking. It is hard I'm in for therapy. I don't agree that the person was ranked first for foster with an 87 we did for sake of Allah. I just want to tell you that Allah gives you the Neptunia booth.
By being the best doctor in the world, I wouldn't have earned so much of him. I didn't do it for him.
The reason I'm telling you is that a mania was to please Allah subhanho wa Taala
and Allah made a stammer into one of the best orators Alhamdulillah.
Now coming to the second part, time is short.
India to Malaysia.
This part is actually longer than the first part, but I'm short
a hamdulillah till 2007. I started down in 1988 started the organization 1991
In February IRF
in the span
of 25 years, from
88 to 2007.
That was 20 years initially, there was never any any controversy about
and I always had a philosophy that if you're doing
something on the Huq, there's bound to be obstacles.
But for me for the first 20 years, there was no obstacles.
martial line my following Hanafi Shafi humbly Maliki all types of people Muslims coming and non Muslims coming in no problem at all whatsoever. Until when we had the first peace conference 2007
You know when the banner became bigger
and a question was asked to me
Regarding Aziz mela mas, and I said, Allah have mercy on him. When I said that in the answer, I won't go to the details. May Allah have mercy on him. I said to
one friend when very fine Few days later from Pakistan, the shear the packets are no, how did he say he already ramola Mela massimi controversy before that, she has used to call me to give talks, because I was on comparative religion.
That was the first controversy.
I stopped and I give references from all the Scripture then everything.
Second controversy that happened was in 2008, when we did the peace conference, or do when we called the speakers from different groups of different sects on fame platform, and they tried to stop the conference. And that was a time in my life and I thought
the Earth is taken away from my feet for the big conference that will be stopped. It was small problem that time but that time I thought it was a big problem. What to do? I went to my cabin, prayed to Allah subhanaw taala next day, don't Minister interferes his son being a Hindu, he comes and touches my feet. I said this is what allowed.
And the conference goes on to cut the story short.
Third controversy in 2010.
In 2010, I had been to UK in 2009.
And in UK when I went in 2009, the head of the counterterrorism department Charles Farr, he approached me and said You are very popular. We want you to help us to teach those Muslims who we cannot reach.
So I told him,
I will help in two conditions. Number one,
you should not ask me to do anything against Quran and Sunnah. Number two, I don't want your money. He agreed.
The UK government wanted my help to reach those Muslims who they could not reach because the popularity of fish TV in 2010 the government changes from Labour Party, we have the conservative
because the new government comes Theresa May. At that time she was the Home Secretary later she became the Prime Minister. She didn't know me, she said
who is the most popular Muslim speaker in UK? They said lacunae mandem we cannot hear not anything wrong. mandem find something in the speech which He spoke against UK he hasn't spoken against Okay. Find something in the speech which is illegal, nothing illegal. Okay, go to CIA ask them. See I said we have nothing against doctors.
I said yet I want to ban him. He said if you ban him, he will go to the court. She said I will handle the judges. And
she excluded me. The only country officially to exclude me in 2010 was Theresa May three weeks she came to power. She didn't know me but because I was a popular Muslim then I realize there are two problems. major problems in our number one amongst the Muslim, there are sects who fight against each other biggest problem
number two, in the political arena, the politician non Muslim to get his vote bank he will attack the Muslim dies.
So these two are the major problems for Dawa. Number one is Muslims having sex among themselves.
Allah says in the Quran in surah Imran Chapter three was the symbol we have Lila Jamia velata for hold to the rope of Allah strongly and we're not divided. If we Muslim, the United Inshallah, no one can interfere with us.
And I had a formula to unite the Muslims. But time is shot, I cannot
touch on that.
So our shock, the head of the counterterrorism department wants my help, and now they want to ban me. So the ban me and my lawyer CO will fight the case will win 99.9% One of my friends, we have the best of lawyer, he tells me that we will have the best of lawyer but we will not win we will lose.
We spent more than a million pound only in fighting the government. We lost the case. But we won the battle. Our organization was safe. And we went to Supreme Court we went to the European Court.
That was the first experience of political interference. In 2012. One of my staff
he uploaded a video without checking on my Facebook
in which it was my speech, but altered there was laughter in between so give a wrong picture.
towards the end of 2012. And I was supposed to come for a lecture tour to Malaysia.
It was initially 30 just maybe a month before that. And there was no problem in India but some into from Malaysia that
that clip and made it while I started complaining and the told people in India for first time any non Muslim objected to my talk was in 2012. Why? In 2007 it was Muslim because from Pakistan chief complaint in 2012 it was Hindu from Malaysia some organization they complained
to Hindu organization in India and there was a big massive protest first time
the Hindus in India normally loved me, they respect me, they revere Me therefore, for my talk 25% of the people coming for my talk on non Muslims.
So, from 1988 to 2012
there was no problem at all
25 years no problem.
But some political organization in India took that issue
and made a short of me and made Police Complaints. First problem in India regarding non Muslim 2012.
But a humble Illa. Allah helped us we continued
then in 2014.
the BJP government you may be aware it's an anti Islamic party. It's a Hindu fanatic political party, they came to power
and when they came to power, the scenario in India change slowly.
And to cut the story short.
I was on my trip for ombre
in Makkah, and every year from the year 2000 And
to three till for 15 years, every year, the last seven days or 10 days. Me and my family always been in Makkah. Then after that winter Medina for a week.
We were in Macau on the first of July 2016. There was a bomb blast in Dhaka.
And a newspaper by the name of star said one of the terrorist. He was a fan of Dr. Zakir Naik on the Facebook that came in the newspaper on the third of July 2,016/4 of July next day. Almost all the papers in in India
not Asahina inspires inspired the terrorist attack on me.
Three days later, that Bangladeshi newspaper corrected we never said Dr. Zaki nine inspired we only said one of the terrorists for the fan of Dr. Zaki nine out of 14 million people that time on my facebook if one person so they said that we never said that newspaper corrected, but the Indian media did not.
Then we realized there was a plan and plot of the
of the Indian government. But hamdulillah because of the popularity by the grace, Allah Spano, Tala, there were protests all over India.
So much so that in most of the cities of India, they were Protest
And Alhamdulillah all the Muslim sects are the NFP Shafi humbly Maliki they open to all of them supported almost all. They said, We may not agree with Dr. Sakina. But he's not a terrorist. They were big protests. So much so that in one month's time in the parliament, the Indian government said Dr. Zakir Naik organizations are involved with terrorism. In the parliament, they said
and all the protests died down. But it was the plan. When the protests died down.
They made a new issue in November,
about the Muslim personal law. When all the Muslim got together in between that on the 17th of November 2016, the Indian government bands my organization
outside India, I want to come back, do a press conference. They didn't allow me. So I was already outside India, not that I ran away from India
and the band organization for five years.
At that time, because the Muslims were involved in the Muslim personal law issue.
There was no protest hardly any and it was the planning
after that, Mashallah. I never imagined the red carpet treatment I got from the other countries in the world.
I got offers from about 12 to 15 countries come and stay here, come here. We'll give you this figure that I did my survey. Previously I traveled
or the lecture or not knowing the ins and out. I took time, and I found according to me, the best country today if a Muslim has to live, according to me, in Malaysia
I can give a one hour lecture by Malaysia the best country
time doesn't permit me. And I said that, number one, Malaysia is away from the war zone, you know, girlfriend in a war zone Yemen, Syria, what is going on? Number two, it is not under the clutches of the Western Power like America, etc.
Number three, according to me, the best non Arab country in the world in which Muslims are the most practicing, according to me in Malaysia, and average Muslim in Malaysia, an average Muslim in Malaysia is a better practicing Muslim than average Muslim of India, or every Muslim of Pakistan, or every Muslim or Bangladesh.
And this is my own research. And I can give you proofs for, like always proof with proof.
If you see in Malaysia in India, how many people pray five times a day? How many?
Not less than 10% some service in less than 5% How many people provide them in almost less than 2%? Same in Pakistan, same in Bangladesh, in Malaysia mashallah, according to me more than 50% pray five times a day in a mosque more than 95%
You go to the mall, there are people praying in the mosque. So as a practice in Muslim, except non Arab countries, Calfee the different things out there with a different thing.
The best non Arab practicing Muslim country is Malaysia. Point number three, point number four. Point number four, the Federal religion of this country Malaysia is Islam.
Point number five in most of the countries in most of the states of Malaysia, where Raja is there a Muslim can propagate to a non Muslim or non Muslim can propagate to Muslim
why number six, the government funds the mosques and Islamic activity like Biothermal there is a card
and you see every mosque now the new mosque into Grand Mosque, the mosque is there the basement there is a place for the Imam there's a place auditorium you go to kill most beautiful
you don't find this in other parts of the world.
Why number one number seven the country which has the best
Islamic economic system that that interest free banking, it's in Malaysia in terms of quantity, Saudi Arabia number one, but in terms of number in terms of value of dollars, Saudi Arabia is number one, Malaysia number 2,025% Malaysia 17% of the economy but in terms of banking system, the easy facility of riba free banking in Malaysia number one
every bank has has an Islamic Sharia
an interest free account an umbrella, there is takaful there is insurance, and I can go on and go on time is short.
Next point is Malaysia is a beautiful country. The scenery the tourism is excellent. You can go to different parts and tomorrow we'll be trying to uncover Mashallah. It was rated as one of the halal tourism Alhamdulillah in terms of living
the, the percentage the expenditure in Malaysia, the standard of living is good, the expenditure is less as compared to the Gulf country.
Malaysia mashallah is an economically strong country now, because of pandemic most of the countries are down that's the different thing. And the list is wrong. time doesn't permit me. So I chose Malaysia.
I never thought in my life before that ever I will have to leave India. I thought they will stop by the I never thought in my dream that they will accuse me of terrorism.
So they went to the Interpol in 2017. And they requested the doctors are kidnapped should have a Red Corner notice. Then we call a lawyer,
a very famous lawyer in UK and he came to advise me, he said if any country request Interpol for terrorism charges 99.9% They will give it faster Why have you come here then? What I can do I can delay the Red Corner notice how long to three months and nonsense. But alhamdulillah when Indian government send the request to Interpol. Interpol rejected it outright.
In 2017, the requested 2018 Interpol had a committee mashallah maybe they found mica said they said no. Dr. Zaki night there is no evidence he's a terrorist. There's no charges filed against him, there is no proof. So again in 2018, Indian government requested the second time to Interpol and the chain the charges from terrorism to it speech and the sample have made speech in the poll again at the meeting in 2019. And they said no, he does not give it speech.
Then 2019 Again, the fresh Okay, doctors are killing off the chain the charges to money laundering or collecting money
What a beautiful reply Interpol gives in 2020 2111 months ago
in February they Right. Dr. Zakir Naik, there is no proof at all you do money laundering. If he collects he has a right he's following the law of the country where he's collecting.
Never do it illegally and roll a slap on the Indian government.
There is not a single court in the world which has put any verdict against me in 2019 in 2018, sorry, when the
NI and the EDI the attachment property, we went to the court the head of the tribunal
Dr. Manmohan Singh, fortunately, he had seen my videos, he said I have seen Dr. Zaki next video, give me one evidence, anyone lecture of his in context very supports terrorism, I will attach all these properties. Imagine a sick a non Muslim
he think the judge telling the lawyer I have seen Dr. Zaki, nice video cassettes, show me anyone lecture office in context, various promoted terrorism, I will attach all this property and there was a state. So, by law by court of law, I have not been convicted at all Yes, because I did not go back for the case. There are scoring against me, but not a single court has convicted me anywhere nowhere in the world.
Indian Government tried their level best with many countries to get me back, including Malaysia Alhamdulillah Malaysia has been strong.
The government kept on changing all the government supported me because they knew the truth they supported the truth that the reason I said that Malaysia, masha Allah is strong country
and mashallah, they do not bend down to pressures of the International though the relationship of Indian militia is good, but Alhamdulillah
and always mashallah always I had no problem at all with f5 the gum discount only problem I had is other told you with the non Muslim politicians,
the non Muslim politician of India. Now they started me using the word bank, the Prime Minister of India, Narendra Modi, in his next election in 2019. In less than two minutes, he takes my name seven times. Imagine the Prime Minister of the biggest democracy country in the world. Narendra Modi in his election rally. He's taking my name seven times in less than two minutes. Masha Allah, I'm honored
that the Prime Minister of India to win the election has to take the name of Dr. Zakir Naik. Hi, I'm in for therapy.
Hi, told them you want to inquiry. We can have a videoconferencing. We can talk. No Camilla.
People tell me Oh, Dr. Zack in Niagara? And I said no, I did. Hegira.
And that's what a prophet did. When the Prophet was persecuted in Makkah, which was the Holy City, what he did, he did. And we can guide me from that. If someone is trying to persecute you, or someone is trying to kill you. What do you do?
It's not a question of running away.
And after I came to Malaysia, there are many Indian diamond scholars who came to meet me and one very famous day I want to give him he said, according to my research, no one in today's world has done his job because you are the die. You're the first one. We are only waiting for Fatima Khurana.
I don't agree that I'm gonna die. But that was his research. And hamdulillah Summa Hamdulillah. And one of the reasons that took Malaysia because percentage wife. My following in Malaysia is much more than any other country on my face book. There are 22 point 7 million people in Bangladesh about 6 million Pakistan, 3 million India two and a half million Indonesia one and a half million Malaysia one and a half million. But percentage wise, there are about 90 million Muslims in Malaysia.
One and a half million of 19 million is approximately 80%. And everyone doesn't use Facebook less than 50% us. So percentage wise, the maximum following that I have anywhere in the world it's in Malaysia and even the non Muslim in Malaysia to me, the genuine non Muslim are very good. It is only the media which attacks me in Malaysia. It is only the non Muslim politicians who attack me otherwise, I'd gone to hospital last week.
The elderly Hindu lady with a Tikka Dr. Zakir Naik I'm your fan can I take photographs with you? So normally when with ladies I always want you know a man I'm in between orogen two I said if there's a gentleman between no problem so she took the another person who
came from a big company, I won't name the company a Muslim, a Malay and a Hindu. He said Sir, can I have a photo with you?
Before that I went to a doctor
and he looked like an Indian I thought he was a Muslim Indian.
He said I cannot charge you I said Well, I'm your fan and give me scheduled Hindu
for like India, even the Hindus here generally a good it is the political motivated people who for the vote bang like in India
like in India, no problem with Hindus. Even now, it is the political, political word bank, non Muslims who want to use religion as a vote bank, they are the problem for the Java of the Muslim all over the world same thing in UK same thing in India.
So, the main intention is to use religion as a word bank.
So, in India now, I problem most of the Indian the fans of mine now, when they use the media they spent millions of dollars in giving newspaper articles against me.
Yet today when I travel and I meet the Indian non Muslim then foreign countries they respect me even here in Malaysia most of the news emitted respect me
it only goes with the with the group that belong to a word bank.
So, these are the two problems of the day
and mashallah when I came here to Malaysia, my life changed
my demand increased my faith in Allah increased
all my properties that were attached. I told my wife I think everything is zero. If we get back into the bonus, I didn't even bat an eyelid
oh we had a lot of properties a lot of money, everything the government throws
no problem. What is money?
All maybe this is gone. No problem. didn't bat an eyelid have been for therapy. We started no problems
on the hips and requirement was very low
2000 and you did nothing right or wrong.
MashAllah people from all over the world. Dr. Zaki, what you want many businessman, what do you want we'll give you $10,000 A month we'll give you $25,000 A month we'll give you 100,000 year hydronic radish effect collected all Aqua Wort yearly millions of dollars. I said I don't require this. My requirement is only 2000 ringgit and I'm earning much more than that.
And I kept on giving the percentage of income
whatever I earn, I won't tell you the percentage but majority are giving charity
for all all the lectures even today, I pay for my money and ticket car, everything What do you say I pay?
I want to maintain even though all my properties have been attached, yet, have been for therapy. We never used dava as a way of earning money, never.
The blessing that Allah has given us in the worldly way far superior than other things.
So my life changed my mind changed one thing new that happened. I wasn't too much attached to the social media because of pitch TV.
When we came here, my social media the YouTube platform the 1000 within two years nowadays, 3 million mashal 3 million subscribers my Facebook we're 14 million nowadays 22 point 7 million Mashallah.
We spend more time on social media. Previously we didn't have time to have weekly sessions. Now we have weekly life questionnaires a session which is a new series muscle
and that has changed. We have gone to different fields of Islam. We have we met, masha Allah Allah has blessed that we meet heads of states of many Muslim countries in the world even non Muslim country. I was advised the religious advice to many of the heads of state I don't want to name them and we did what we could with but always whenever I meet head of state
I tell I have to guide him closer to Quran and Sunnah and every head of state I met I thought to it that I give them now of the
I would not think that okay, I'll be kicked out of the country and never thought that you know, I would be cherished my job I the day used to deliver the message Allah to protect me and Masha Allah we changed many things.
Time will not permit me to
what Allah has blessed Mashallah.
But when we came here mashallah our Ibadat Engrish
to someone asked me the question and flesh it what is your daily routine? And the answer is for more than half an hour. I can give it now
on average in India to sleep for three hours in Malaysia asleep for
About three and a half hours a day on average
three and a half hours a day on average, sometimes two hours, sometimes three or sometimes four hours on average. And you realize that all the people, all the people who have reached a level with a great work or bad work or good work, they sleepless most of them if not all
and mashallah coming here. The faith in Allah increase, I bother increase first, you know, the many things among the one thing that increase that further tattooed was there for small now that I do this for about two hours a video hamdulillah
so my working time in India was about 16 hours a day. Here it is about 12 hours a day for Java permit time fibers, I increased my Java time he did that 12 hours a day, every day.
What I did, in Bombay, we had the biggest largest Java organization in the world, in Bombay, the biggest budget, we had more than 500 people working full time in Bombay alone. Then more than 100 people in Chennai, we are offices in London. Here, I decided where I'm living, I will not have many staff, I have only hardly about four staff.
Five staff but now we have offices in other parts of the world. Because of zoom internet. It's easier for where I'm living. I heard the FIA staff that term at 500. Only in one office in Bombay, one of the largest private Dav organization in the world.
You know, from a budget of 100 from a budget of only $200 a month, that is about two and a half $1,000 a year. It became the largest. I won't tell you what the budget was
100 has been funded.
And Allah blessed us from a stammer.
It made me some auditor
and Mahindra, from India, to Malaysia, I never knew that my life would change so much.
And we never regretted any time anything.
I only remember the statement of shackles management Aimia sugar Islamism anytime you have in your Harish,
he said that what can they do to me? What can they do?
If they arrest me? I will do bother. If they examine me, I will contemplate on Allah. If they execute me I will be a martyr I'll be a shy Jana is in my heart
so the more they're trying more the center's MSA to meet me in Malaysia.
He sent an emissary to meet me Malaysia not as I can I can we remove the misunderstanding? I said What misunderstanding your police Nia knows everything about me there's no misunderstanding. No, can we be friends? I said no problem. As long as you don't tell me to anything against Quran sunnah. I don't want your money. You know what they want me to do? They wanted me to support the government that what they're doing in Kashmir is correct. I said nonsense. They gave me safe passage. We will get you back to India. We will delete all your cases
as what you want nothing wants then they're going and telling me can you say what the Indian government is doing is Kashmir is right. I said Oh, my dead body.
In Kashmir, you're persecuting our Muslim Brothers, How dare is totally wrong. Then they wanted me to support the new Act.
That and today. Unfortunately, this phonetic Hindu organization is really troubling the Muslims of India, unfortunately, all the Muslim countries are silent. It's a shame.
It's a shame.
The largest population of any Muslims in the world today is India. The Muslim than India, according to me are more than the Muslim the Indonesia official Indonesia has more. But other government only says 14.3% 200 million according to me, it is 20% more than two 60 million.
Anyway, Allah subhanaw taala
and we pray to Allah subhanaw taala that me he utilize us in the best way that he can.
We have dedicated our lives for the sake of Allah subhanaw taala May Allah accept it. And whatever little we achieved it is only because of Allah subhanaw taala every time our Eman keeps on increasing.
And I always tell even in our training program, there are three points of success number one, so Rembrandt chapter three was the 160 If Allah helps you, man can overcome you. If Allah forsakes you who was dead, then who can help you. So let the believers put the national law number one, number two, Allah says in Tsutenkaku chapter number 29 Verse number 69. If you strive and struggle in the way of Allah subhanaw taala Allah
Open up your Pathways. If you strive and you don't get success, you are to blame not Allah. Allah promises that if you strive will get success. So I always tell my staff and my friends and my students, that if you strive you have to get success. If you don't get success, that means the striving is not correct. And number three is Fasano. Alice Vickery in control LaTonya moon, so then the hell chapter 16 Verse 43. And so chapter 27, that if you don't know as the person who's knowledgeable that technique,
but with all the technique in the world, if Allah doesn't help you to use this, I tell my son, fine, as far as background is concerned, in childhood, until the age of 27
What my son has got a background his housing then better than me. Have you the Quran without Africa, the language graduate of from Imam Saudi university, but if Allah does not help you, everything is useless. I tell him that you should get Allah that that is the best degrees, no value for the Sahara.
What are you gonna do with the degree
and only way you can get Allah help with if you strive and struggle, see, that you sacrifice. See to that you sacrifice the thing you live for the sake of Allah, and always pray to Allah subhanaw taala that me my children strive so that they can type of Allah. Otherwise, without the help of Allah, all your knowledge, all your training, all your thing is useless, zero.
Have faith in Allah, if Allah hath Sunan can overcome you, if Allah for 60, who was there, then who can help you
strive and struggle, inshallah we'll be successful, then as the person who's knowledgeable in any field
as opposed to knowledgeable Inshallah, inshallah
you will get success. I have already spoken for more than two hours, I'm sorry, I have not even scratched the surface. I wanted to speak many things. I could not the time was limited Inshallah, when I have the new series, which I intend doing, Inshallah, and this year, maybe more than 35 of them will be 30 or 40. I don't know, Inshallah, that would be much better. I know I spoke a bit faster word then to cover more points.
We have a limited time for the question session. We have more than one hour now. We'll cut it short to a lesser time. And if you have any questions regarding the topic, my life my story, from estimator, to Islamic auditor and Hegira from India to Malaysia Muslim plus, this is that I'm inshallah Walkertown on 100 lm one income Salah Mirandola brachetto.

Calico persona you winner, does Akane Kamali, kehlata Dinosaur Land So Mohammed dinosaur Allah insha Allah that does a can accommodate so Ananda microphone is Deccan silica number one.
Because our time is limited, I would like to limit for only two question is it possible doctors are going to question is it possible?
For All right, no problem.
Salam Alaikum sir, wanting shine image idol Islam from Bangladesh. I would like to ask you that you mentioned before that you're working on a movie. So my question is,
this does Islamic movie can be a medium of Dawa or it is halaal to be create an Islamic movie.
The other asked a question that you might have heard in some of my speeches, not today. Before that I'm working on Islamic movie. So can you have Islamic movies halaal it is possible but very difficult.
If it's an Islamic movie following the Quran and Sunnah, number one, they should see to it that it follows the rules of the Sharia. And if you strictly follow them, but not
They should not be any music. Number one, number two, but natural, you can't have females acting in that.
Because that's against even if the wedding is up, you see a lady on the screen. So that begs the purpose of a job. So if you follow the rules, it's possible but very difficult. So if you asked me, Are they an Islamic movies available? There are, there are some, but very few. And the good quality ones are there. But they haven't followed all the rules of the Islamic Sharia.
For example, the best movie that I know the so called Islamic movie that has been produced so far, it is the message made by Mr. Packard, enrich Anthony Quinn was one of the lead roles. He acted like one of my uncle's almost Salah Salem, they never showed the photo of Homosassa Hamdulillah, which is perfectly fine. They did not show the image of any of the focal ferrocene. But they did show the images of certain Saba, which is objectionable, but amongst the so called Islamic movies, that was made the best. Then we have the Omer series, which is a 30 series made by BBC funded by the Qatar Foundation. That's also beautiful again, there is music in it, but it is not obscene movie. So
amongst the so called Islamic movie, which is breaking the Islamic principle, but less as compared to others. Would it be these, that there they don't do anything, which is obscene, but yet, it is breaking the Amish and I as a person. When I do something I don't believe in 90% Islamic or 95% if I do something, I mean 100% I don't do it.
So we were at a time I was thinking whether we should make or not and I was thinking of making a movie on demand Buhari. I want to take a personality which is accepted by all the sects of Islam. There is no numbers Yama file thought that Bukhari would be a good one, because he is revered by Hanafi Shafi humbly Mulki mashallah, and fell if he thought there was at one time, but now we have got better projects and important projects. So I don't think so. I'll be going for the project comes down to the question. Thank you. Second question brother over here. Salaam Alaikum. Dr. Zakir My name is devious ruddy from Gumbaz lungo some people were very lucky to be born in educated
practicing Muslim family like you and chances to know Elden Islam is more Su is supposed to dive in to Islamic scholar since childhood. But certain people who are born in broken family problematic family, or with very bad upbringing, which is logically in terms of chances for them to know, LM learn Islam is less. And furthermore, if they were born in non Muslim family, theoretically, the chances for them to enter Jannah is less compared to lucky people like you. So people like this have been a bit risk to become far from Allah and become tougher and it is, I used to meet people who become atheists because of one of the contributing factor is because of her broken family. And as we
all know, Allah is justice. So what is your comment about this? Thank you. Thank you, brother. The brothers asked the question very fast, but I understood most of it Mashallah. He said that some people I mean, I'm my I'm born in a Muslim practicing family. I'm lucky some people are born in broken family. What about them? Some people are not born
in practicing Muslim families. So what chances that they will become Islamic, some are born in a non Muslim family. So what are the chances is an unjust Allah subhanaw taala gives us example in the Quran.
You know Abraham Allah Salam, he is called as one of the five mightiest messengers of Allah subhanaw taala. He father was a
right or wrong. A father was a missionary.
He tells the father that don't worship Satan worship our life and I kick you out of the house. That means the bride mela salaam was one of the mightiest messengers of Allah Subhan. Allah out of five mentioned in the Quran. His father was a mushrik he kicked him out of the house, he became a messenger. So when the question of becoming a die, you have examples of sons of messengers of Allah like Noah salaam, his son, he didn't follow him.
nuvolexa esalaam takes a promise from Allah that saved my family. Allah says I will save your family. When the flood comes. I'm cutting the story short. When the flood comes, the water starts rising. His son says I will go to the highest peak of the mountain the water will not reach there. water rises. And then when he's drowning, New Orleans, Salam OS Allah, He reminds him, didn't you promise me that you will save my family? What is the replay of Allah? Allah says Your son is not amongst your family. Allah is talking about the family of Eman
the family of the Muslim ummah, Allah tells him that your son is not amongst a family that means the family of Eman is much much greater than the family of blood. You understand? If you
Have a Muslim friend. If you have a moment, and if you have a Muslim Father, that moment is much better.
Annually Salah men ask for forgiveness. So there you have examples in the Quran of sons of prophets who are mushriks. You have examples of the Viva Prophet, wife of Nutella salaam,
who did not obey Allah. You have the example of wife of Iran, at the worst man in the world, his wife says, Praise to Allah and Surah Hareem chapter number 66 Verse number 11. Oh Allah, I would like to exchange the wealth. She was the wife of the richest man in the world, the most powerful man in the world exchange the status of mine for a house in Jana close to you, what are the
imagine the wife of a good
so you have examples. It is my formula which I told you. Did you hear my lecture? Three formula, if you if Allah helps you man can overcome you follow four sixes who's who's there, they can help you let the believers put their faith in Allah. He killed every newborn male child. And Musala Salam is brought up in the house of pharaon Allah
he strived he opened up the pathways. So Allah is just Are you falling last commandment is important. We have examples of people being in the worst family, having fathers who are coffered, who Mushnik what are good, they become messengers.
You have examples of children of messengers, wives of messengers, there is obey. So Allah is just Allah test different people in different way. And you have examples of all this. If you follow Allah, follow the Quran, inshallah you get the best of this world and hold on to the question.
All right, I would like to invite a Muslimah that's a I believe there are two questions behind there. So please our sister over there. What are your questions
Bismillahirrahmanirrahim Assalamualaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh barakato
Good evening every participant in here I am carrying Aryan tea from Indonesia I want to ask about the some of people trying to memorize of all memorizing of Al Quran because of several reasons like Look can you speak a bit slowly sister slowly?
Can you speak a bit slowly? Take it easy slowly and steady. Okay. So the conclusion is many people are trying to memorizing of Al Quran because not because of Allah subhanaw taala because of several reason, like a look like religious or some saffron requirements Academy. So what do you think about that? And can you give a five hour of impact when people make it? Okay, thank you, I wish you and family in good condition as a as always, thank you, salam alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh
understood correctly, that we should remember the Quran for sake of Allah subhanaw taala some remember it for academics.
Or some remembered, memorize the Quran may be for fame. Some people may memorize for earning money. If you memorize for the mix, you can memorize academies and Allah's work together no problem at all.
If you're memorizing for Allah subhanaw taala and you say I want a certificate, I want a solid, no problem as long as the need for Allah. If you're near that you only want to memorize the Quran for making money. Allah will give you money in this world, but will not give you some options.
If you say I want to please it to Allah subhanaw taala and make it a barrier for my living, no problem, it is permitted. The Prophet permitted that but don't unnecessary charge high. If you charge exorbitant, then that is wrong. But if you read the Quran, and if you take a normal fee, which is justified so that you can take care of your family it is acceptable, because it is better to teach the Quran than to teach English language right or wrong.
When you're teaching English language, the person may come close to the may go away from them. So as long as you do not break the boundary, if you say I'm a good curry, I'm going to charge 10 times more than that is wrong. But if you want to charge normal which is acceptable, it is permissible. If Allah has given you wealth and you to free it is the best.
If Allah has given you, Miyama and you teach free, it is very good. But if we charge within limits, it is permissible. It's not haram. I hope that answers the question. Okay, thank you. Alright, I'll read over there your question.
Yeah. Salam, salam alaikum Dr. Muhammad surgeon OB I'm from Bangladesh. Actually, I want on suspicion from you. In order to this society that oh, sorry. I collect from Iran especially that when you are talking about the Mary
In our today's society, if we're telling to our parents about our marriage, they're telling me or they're telling us why you want to get married right now completed graduation first, get job or do something after that you should think about your marry. And then when we are talking with our parents, they're saying that why you want to get married right now, this is not the current age, but they're doing relationship with the girls or the girls doing relationship with the boys. This is the Haram when we're talking about why you are doing like this. This is haram in our Islam, this thing Yes, this is haram but you should not get married right now. So I want your suggestion, which is
there is right age to get married. Thank you, sir. Without the question that which is the right age to get married, a parent don't want to marriage early, you know, there's a delay due education, etc. The best guidance is given by our beloved prophet masala Salam, it's mentioned, these are a big hurry. The Prophet said, all young people, whoever had the means to get married should get married. So Prophet advised that if we have the means, get married as early as possible. And for a marriage for a man, the moment he becomes an adult, he becomes the ballot, you can get married. Same with a woman. So moment you get Bollig if you think you have the means to get married, you should get
married that the advice of the Prophet if you asked me personally,
if you asked me if I say that today's age, because people have education, etc. So I normally advise that if a boy wants to get married, I think that, okay, if he wants, if he wants to become a graduate, a normal person becomes graduate at the age of 21. So I say for a man, the best age is 21. He can get married early if he wants, but should not delay too much. Because the fitnah is more for a woman, she gave her mother's age of 90. And you can even continue education after marriage. This is my suggestion Islamically earlier, the better. But seeing the scenario that if you want to be a graduate and get married, on average, a person becomes the gadget at the age of 20 or 21. Normally,
unless you know there are some problems. You can So my suggestion is that okay, good. Ages 2122 for a boy. If you want to get married early, it's good. It's most up. There's no problem at all, as long as you have the means. But don't delay too much, because the more you delay, there'll be fitna regarding your pants. I'll come to it later on. The more you delay, the more chances you know haram activity. You may get involved in things which obscene you may get involved in Vienna, and that's a major sin. As far as education is concerned, you can very well continue education even after marriage. There is no restriction. What's the problem?
What you have to do is make your needs less. If you say I want a very good car, I want a very big house on the three bedroom apartment. That is the problem. I would say make your needs less and get married. You can very well rent apartment. So if you make your needs less and get married earlier, there are many benefits I've given a talk on this the benefits of marrying earlier. You know you have children faster, you can retire faster. You can spend your wakefulness faster the my advices to the girls than boys get married as early as possible the moment you become adult as early as possible. Normally I tell in today's age for a girl maybe 1924 Oh boy, maybe 2122 I see you can
marry earlier so but don't delay too much. Hope that answers the question. Thank you, sir. All right, brother over here your question. Sarah Marie.
I am not Sol Havas. I am from Emma. Mashallah varkala Doctor, you have knowledge in different images remove your mask please Okay, yeah, yes, that's better. Mashallah, Doctor, you have knowledge in different fields and powerful mind. So could you please share what techniques did you use to study and to learn more and what advice would you give us as students to be like you and thank you?

for getting all this knowledge?
In my speech, I gave you three formulas Correct. Number one, is help of Allah. Through them nine Chapter Three was 160 Allah Hubzu Nankana welcome you If Allah for six years, who is that they can help you? Number two, is Taiwan struggle in the way of Allah surah and Caboose chapter 29 Verse 69/3, I gave you first Alou early victory in gondola Tala moon, Sudan air chapter 16 Verse 43, surah, chapter 21, verse number seven technique.
You asking me the third most important why don't you ask me the first important
Ranson the third, the third most important technique, which is the most important
the virus will not come to the help of Allah subhanaw taala. So, you should ask me How should I get the help of Allah
Asking for the technique. If I tell you number one number two number three we should you have number one or number three, technique survey number three after the help of Allah What did you ask me? How can I get there? Are you asking me can you give me the technique? Yeah
this is most of them you should ask me how to get the help of ALLAH to get the help of Allah number one is read the Quran read the translation understand it
your machine human human reality we got the language Correct. You may be understanding the Quran if not fully at least part. You may not be knowing Luca fossa, but you understand part Correct? Yes, yes, true. So if you don't get the help of Allah, you will be questioned more than more than me right or wrong.
So you knowing Arabic should get more help? I should get more help.
Yeah, I should understand more than me, correct? Yeah. You should get more paavola than me right or wrong? Yes. I'm getting more by
by the help of Allah subhanaw taala because you are not reading the Quran. If you read the Quran and you understand the Quran and implement on it live him, you have to get the hell. Number two, you have to strive and struggle. Did you strive and struggle? If you strive and struggle correctly? If you strive and struggle and don't get results, that means you're striving and struggling is wrong. What did I do? I wonder that there are according to me, there are hundreds of 1000s of Muslims who are more knowledgeable than me.
Much more knowledgeable than me. Why do people come for my talk?
has been for therapy. What did I do? Nothing. Okay, sacrifice my medical profession. No sacrifice according to me.
Knows, according to me,
I think I establish
why do people come to listen to my talk? Has I'm in for therapy. If Allah puts in your heart come for doctors or he negligee you came.

there are many our training programs that are conducted.
And according to shake Emma deedat
many conducted many of our training programs and I wanted to tell this, I didn't have time, Allah is gonna portunity And he was very disappointed
from right from 1988. Till
next few years, he conducted many without any program for two months, you know, many, but he was very disappointed when I meant to meet him in 1994 or 94. He told me son, who actually knew
who didn't You didn't even train you? He said, No, I personally wasn't trained by Shigeta never. I was a fan.
Except for one two hour course we did on combat kit. I never was officially trained by him, I saw his cassettes and I picked up he told me sir, who trained you to train you? I said no, who trained me no one trained me Allah dream. He did many courses, he was not happy at all. Then we conducted the cost the first hour in program in 1999. We call 20 students from all over the world.
And we did a training program and the same three formula was a which I told then we conducted a second program after 16 years, in 2016. Time did not permit me therefore did not not speak about that with our training program in 2016. And we receive hundreds of application. We selected 20 students from all different countries. And mashallah Malaysia was number one, we selected six students.
Even in the first training program maximum was Malaysia, in the second fixture for Malaysia,
to or from Singapore, one from Japan, one from UK, one from Netherland, one from China, one from Saudi Arabia,
three from India 20 people.
And this training program
which was an extremely different program.
It was a professional program. We did the first program in 99. Then after 16 years in 2016, January.
This program we recorded on 14 4k and 8k cameras.
It was for 45 days,
every week, two days for holiday, two working days for 33.
And officially timing was from 10 to
six, eight hours on officially normally when for 10 hours webinars. And the recording is done based on it. The complete program has been recorded. And now it is being released on our new platform called ilithyia.
Now this program was recorded on the best of cameras so that it could be for 50 years. What we have done now we have made study guides out of it. And for this program for this one program, our training program for 20 students, you know what was our budget.
Our budget for 20 students was 2 million US dollars. 8 million ringgit for training 20 people.
8 million ringgit,
more than 8 million $2 million.
The main reason was, we had the best of facility, best off cameras, best off stage, LED lighting.
Fantastic. So if a person can speak on the stage on our training program, he can speak on any stage.
Now this training program has started being released every month leading to two courses. We have launched a new platform called Le Daya. It's available you can type Alija HIDAYH. And this has many courses. It has my section and other speaker section. There are 40 Other speakers in my section that myself and my son in my affection at present there are more than 23 courses. My friends about six courses are there.
And one of the best courses that is there is the International our training program. This is our training programs. So if you do
it's a 45 day crash course if you do it on the internet and spend a few hours a day it will take you a couple of years. Because it's a voluminous course it is total 350 hours of recording. The total cost is more than 650 hours you have to spend on it. And the cost of that one
Module Introduction then thou lucretian Dawa, to Hindus Dawa to HTS. So based on that, if you hear these courses, you will find the technique, you will find the material, you will find the study guide for color study guide. This is the best that I know of. And you can see it as many times as you want. So, if you go to the Alibaba platform and subscribe to it and do these courses on Islamic Dawa training program, that is the best that I know of, it is a technique based program also has what knowledge has got study guide has a lot of resources, you can do it in the comfort of your home and inshallah it will give you a lot of information. And if you do the homework as prescribed in the
course, then practically you can do Dawa. Hope that answers the question system.

Salaam Alaikum sir salam ala Baraka, Roman from Bangladesh, can you remove the mask please? There is no naka for you. ceramsite Roman for my knowledge, sir. My question is, if my future target is to be like Dr. Jackie Nye, then what should we or should we do now?
Without the question that if your future target
wish to be like Dr. Zakir Naik? What should you do now? That's a good question first I would say that depending upon your age and what you're doing I'm not aware but generally I would say that if a person wants not that whatever Dr. Zaki neck and then you have to do because I did many things that I should not do but Allah made it possible. So best number one is that if you are a child feat would you put your child in Islamic school number one after you grow up, if possible See to it that you join a graduation of an Islamic Studies. Join an Islamic University. The best ones are in the girlfriend de whether it be mom south.
Jamaica, Imam, it can be Medina city it can be more Cora it can be in Qatar it can be in it can be in UAE
non Arab University best i you me the good university, I think Islamic University also then Perlis. So join an Islamic University do Islamic Studies. If you want Rudaba The best would be Sharia so that you can answer questions and if you had situate that you can do his those Aki NIKEiD not a Hafez but Allah has helped I can quote from the Quran if you're not trying to become official Quran, learn Arabic as a language.
And then after that, while doing this, you can do the course on my platform ilithyia
So first is Islamic school you already out of school now join become a graduate in Islamic studies if you can, whether it be Sharia, whether it be Hadith, whether it be tough seed, whether it be Islamic studies,
you become available Quran also learn Arabic as the language look officer along with that, do the course on Alida international our training program and Inshallah, this will depending upon how much you strive depending upon how much you produce Allah, how much ABA you do, how much you do pray that Allah will help you how much you sacrifice. If you want to be doctors in I see to it that major portion of income you give in charity, whether earning 1000 ringgit over the earning a million bring it see today to give more than 50% of your income in charity. Start with this and inshallah Allah will help you I hope that answers the question. Thank you. Thank you so much. My pleasure brother
over them and please make sure that your question is relating to the topic. Ganesha Yeah.
Okay, Salam Alaikum Warahmatullahi Wabarakatuh rota. I am Shafi from Colombo, I'm a student of Sharia. Okay, a lot of Malaysian today know you as a good Dang. And they even recognize you as Lama. And they also protect you if those liberal and leftist people condemn you in the social media.
However, some of them say, you only can be referenced about the CO operative religion. But if you talk about the Aqeedah they say, don't listen to you. Can you comment about this
question that I'm especially I've been compiled religion, but I speak on a kid that don't listen, anyone speaks? Number one is Allah says in the Quran called How to BronyCon include them Sadiki but if you're truthful, produce your proof if you're truthful, anyone he may be illiterate correct? If he tells you anything, as for proof, if the proof is there, you follow it if the proof is wrong rejected, what thing I told about aka without proof, can you point out a single Can you point out a single thing which has proved without proof? So irrespective whether the person is an expert or not, if he speaks to you with proof, and if he's giving you the lien, it is sufficient that the lease
should be correct. You have to take out fault in the lien. Not in his degree, you know, shake me is that only six standard pass? How much?
These are these How much
600 Pass, not even school?
He will take the PhDs of comparative religion lock barrel, right or wrong? Yes, right or wrong? Yes. How much 600 Pass, not even 10 standard didn't pass the school also, because Allah helped him. Correct. So the problem is that the Lilly gives us carries weight. So the problem is that anyone who speaks we have to see is he speaking on the basis of Quran and Sunnah not whether it's speaking on the field, whether it's picking on him that the lien
there is not the lyric but what you have to see that the thing is that fertile my son, studying University is good degree is no value for Hara. The problem is what the lien you have an ad, if you see this habas did they go to universities?
They start with a profit, they start with each other. The best way of acquiring knowledge is sitting with scholars.
Sitting with scholars is one of the best ways and reading the books is the best way. University is good. It gives you
Are we okay that you have studied something? But the main test is how you sit and how can you reproduce? That's important. Anyone says, Ask him, even if a person of PhD if he misquoted the Quran, will you follow Him?
If a PhD of tafsir of Quran says to Allah, will you follow Him?
You follow him volume? No, no. So main thing is what you're going to speak. The degree is important, okay? For those people who don't want to test correct degree Misaki has done he has a but main thing is whether the person is speaking or not. He has the allele on the list the main thing always for delete the problem is those people who cannot refute they give these arguments. Hope that answers the question. Alright, Doctor, is it possible and this is the last question
from the sister over there, sister. I think we'll continue because it was supposed to be for three and a half hours the program. It can go into the call to one till they want to ask no problem. Okay, well, we can go into the code one if they if they're tired, we can talk. Sure. Maybe another two rounds. We can. Yes. Salam aleikum wa rahmatullah wa
barakato it your lecture was so interesting and beneficial for me my name is Steve area I'm currently doing my A levels just like you I want to I want to pursue my carrier in doctor and via Daiya of our beloved Dean Islam. Please give me some guidance and please do our for the successful of my future.
Martial official has said that he's doing a levels and she wanted the guidance and the same guidance about the sister earlier us is that I would want you to if the best profession I started my talk. I didn't have time to give the translation for JazakAllah for reminding me I started my talk with the verse of the Quran from from sorry for Silla. Chapter 41 was the authoritative he says that woman Aslan, call a madman boy Allahu Amina Solly home
will call in the limo Muslimeen who is better in speech than wandering wise to the way of the Lord who works righteousness and says that a Muslim according to Allah subhanho wa taala. The best profession for a Muslim is not a doctor nor an engineer, not a lawyer. It is of a day.
Allah says in the Quran, the best professions of the day, I chose. I wanted to become a doctor because I thought it was the best profession.
But when I read the Quran when I met de that, I realize I want to become a doctor because I wanted to help the humanity which is good, it's not bad. But I found a better profession. Allah fifth woman asked me to call a man Boyle Allahu Allah salido wahala in the middle of Muslimeen, who is better in speech than wondering why through the way of dialogue
works like she says and faith that I'm a Muslim, my mother, she wanted me to become a heart specialist Chris Barnard.
Chris Barnard also happened to be from South Africa like Shaggy Dog.
And she wanted to become like Chris Bonner. So when I got involved in the field of dava when I met Sheikh did that, and I asked her that mother Mommy, do you want me to become like shake Amma the dad or like a heart surgeon?
Dr. Christiana, so she told me I wanted to become both. She was intelligent.
Then later on, when I got more involved in the field of dava when I started giving lectures, when people started getting hedaya from Allah subhanaw taala. When I asked her the same question a few years later, that mummy, do you want me to become like shake em Murthy? That or Dr. Chris Barnard. She said I can sacrifice 1000 Chris Barnard for one *gy dog.
So the best profession for a Muslim is die there's no better profession. I would not like to change my position for anyone in the world. Now, past there are many in the world today I would not like to change my position with any king with any prime minister with any minister with AI Allah has blessed me mashallah has I'm in fact therapy. I'm not saying that I'm the best person but what Allah has blessed me with given me made me a die Alhamdulillah so for us is also the best professional will be a die. Yeah. And I would request you that after you pass your A levels you can learn Arabic or the language you can join any graduation course of Islamic Studies, whether it be Sharia with a bit of
seed, whether Hadith and get involved in it.
And as far as getting trained for being a die, you can refer to the Elida platform which has the course international our training program and inshallah you will get many tips from that inshallah. From them and repeat Allah smarter than me make you a successful liar and may give you the best of this world inocula me sir, thank you very much.
