Allah says in the Glorious Quran “They planned and Allah too planned, Allah is the best of planners” [Surah Ale Imran (3):19]. The moment I came to know about the program of Dr. Zakir Naik at Oxford Union, I remembered the UK ban as well as one of my favorite ayah of the Glorious Quran from Surah Ale Imran (3):19 which I have quoted in the beginning. It was the plan of Allah – the Almighty to popularize Islam as well as Dr. Zakir Naik. After the ban Dr. Zakir Naik became more popular than before, and Alhamdulillah he was invited by the Oxford Union to address a Historic Debate on the topic ‘Islam and the 21st Century’.  I was eagerly waiting for 12th February’s 12:30 am. I made myself available near Television to witness what the Legend has to speak about Islam and 21st Century and the counter argument from the listeners.

I was astonished to see Dr. Zakir Naik completing many aspects of Islam only in 58:05 minutes of his talk. Truly genius!!! He talked on:
  • An Introduction to Islam.
  • The Glorious Quran.
  • Is the Quran Compatible with Science?
  • Human Rights
  • Universal Brotherhood.
  • Women’s rights in Islam.
  • The Concept of God in major Religions.
  • Jihad and Terrorism.
  • Freedom of Expression and UK ban
  • Dr. Zakir Naik’s Mission – Mission of Peace.

These are the topics which the legend covered beautifully as per my observation. He conveyed the message of Islam most magnificently and proved that Islam is the modern religion and compatible with 21st century. The design of the lecture was in such a way which covered the message of Islam in a nutshell.  Dr. Zakir Naik delightfully phrased an Introduction of Quran as “The Glorious Quran is the proclamation to Humanity. It is the guide to error. It is the warning to heedless. It is an assurance to those in doubt. It is the solicits to the suffering and it is the hope for those who despair.” The skill of speaking and quoting references captured the minds audiences.

It is Allah who takes the work from his servants. If you work for his deen (a way of Life – Islam) he will give respect in the society - the society of Muslims as well as Non-Muslims. It is the duty of the Muslims to convey the Message of Islam. But see the miracle of Allah; it is the Oxford Union who invited Dr. Zakir Naik to present the message of Islam. Non-Muslims are ready to listen the message of Islam, they are urging Muslims to present the truth before them, and they want to understand Islam better. But are we prepared to become a daee who prioritize dawah in his/her life???

May Allah protect Dr. Zakir Naik and grant us strength to take up Dawah effectively [Aameen]
