No wonder why they become human bomb. Some uneducated warlord tells them to go kill hundred of people in the name of allah. Well fuck that. A religion which totally kills the morality, and basic thinking of a person.

And that's the reason that will let him make sure no troop will leave his army, as happened with the religions before him, and also planned Al Hajj in order to have the protection of his territory from different places, so no one would even think of attacking Mekka, and Salat 5 times a day on time, the time you'll start thinking that he might be a liar, it's already prayer time, so of course you'll forget what you were thinking of, because your mind is full of God, and Sawm, because troops were complaining about rich people so he set a rule that even rich should feel poor, not the opposite cause other wise there will be no troop to fight with, and who can't has to feed 60 of the poor/troop, or release one of the slaves, which will convert into troop and that's why Al Hour Al Ain only for Men not Woman, first reason is that only Men can fight cause of physical Strength and of course if you're a Soldier and someone tells you that you wife will be having sex with someone when you die, you wouldn't like it, and that's why Ma malakat aymanokom and 4 wifes, cause the Rich people like to enjoy life and their slaves, if you prohibit them from their slaves they might fight you, cause they are smart and Paying Taxes to Troop in form of Zakat in order to fight, and so many more if you just think, I am still Muslim and these are questions, but until now no one has found answers cause most of them aren't logical but beliefs, you can't know a truth by believing but by logic, you can't find a killer or thief by believing he is the killer but by the logic of the mind and by digging deeper
Ash Tube (1 month ago)
This is the most logical thing I have heard, especially with the example of a Child the monkey didn't love the kid enough than himself, but let's dig deeper into this logic, if you ask someone to fight for you without loving you more than his life, will he fight to death? No I don't think so, that's the reason why you have to love the prophet more than yourself, in order to fight for him to death, it's clear

Because its followers are retards, thinking they are the fixed centre of the universe. Their monster-god forces them to kill and destroy non-believers, even women, children and babies. They love to torture animals, of which many are considered unclean by them. However, the only unclean "animals" I know are Zakir Naik and his ISIS-fans. Hopefully many countries will follow the example of the Chinese government and put an end to the sickening, abusive and destructive islamic cults. May common sense prevail.

When they insult and lie about Islam, it’s called Free speech or criticism But when we speak about you it’s called fundamentalism or extremism. Great Answer!
Soroush Baharvand (2 months ago)
You are wrong you are saying that prophet said no one is muslim if he loves me and allah first of all you tell why allah and prophet mohamad they fight with tose who disagree with islam as being their own religion and whats so lovely about prophet mohamad that muslims should love the person that do many sins like killing people is a great sin in islam as i read about islam but why muslims exept him from sin they exculpate him from this sin and all sins that he do why if sin is sin for one prophet it is sin for your prophet too just answer me please ?
*Not that good of an answer by Naik but here’s it:* The reason why we Muslims are so “sensitive” to criticism, is because you others say you have come with “evidence” when in actuality it’s just you insulting and mocking Islam. When you ask a logical question, it’s answered and it makes sense so then you resort to your little: “Piss be upon him”, “Rapist”, “Cunt”, “Pedophile”, “Smelly Goat”, “Pervert”, “Warlord” jokes about the Prophet. When we criticize you, we say: “It doesn’t make sense.” But when you criticize us, you say: “Rapist, Terrorist, Warlord, War Cult....blah blah blah blah blah blah!” You don’t come with evidence or logic, most of the time you are only equipped with insults and you expect no one to be offended.....

Muslims fanatics do not understand logic, because they are indoctrinated in a book of rules that has no logic. The same can be said of fanatics of any religion or cult that repeatedly reiterates the same doctrine over and over to its adherent followers. Because logic is a truth and religion is only a belief, laws can only be based on logical truths, and not on beliefs.

Egoism is not religion. So many bigots are too ignorant to understand that God is the universal super-conscious soul present No religion can claim exclusivity to this universal infinite soul. No scripture can claim exclusivity to this universal entity. Egoistic thinking that my religion is true and your is false is not really religion but just egoism which is just an extension of matter and is not spiritual.

When you tell the muslim the truth about God that Jesus christ is God the devils get angry they try to blind the truth from people about God, and cause them to attack the truth. The shetan is not going to come to muslims and say im realy yiur God because he is aliarband a deciever he wants you to reject Jesus christ and end up in hell fire, wake up to the truth.

Hey Naik.... This is written in Quoran! Surah 47: Verse 4 "When you encounter those who disbelieve, strike at their necks. Then, when you have routed them, bind them firmly. Then, either release them by grace, or by ransom, until war lays down its burdens. Had Allah willed, He could have defeated them Himself, but He thus tests some of you by means of others. As for those who are killed in the way of Allah, He will not let their deeds go to waste." I guess I ain't "maligning" your religion or anybody. Just showing the truth about your religion. It's the most pathetic religion there is.

I love my child more then myself, if you criticize my child I'd want to know why, my sensitivities might provoke anger or will provoke me to walk away, at most devolve in to insults and cutting that person out of my life, never tho will I lay my hands on that person, promote legal action, murder, or promote my community to seek retribution because that is just some assholes opinion or perhaps its legitimate, point is that person has the right to criticise what ever is sacred to me, I've had my velues and my culture criticised numerous times but not once have I demanded force, rarely if ever have I even taken it personally I will debate them on it because I believe the values I live under will survive the criticism and if they don't its because I have been convinced they are wrong, make no mistake about it, values of liberty and freedom of speech and expression are cherished just as much by myself as Islam is to any Muslim, I would die in the name of such values as my forefathers generations did, but I will never strike a man for speaking against them, I will fight them with my words but I am not afraid of their criticism, having hurt feelings is no excuse for murder, prosecution, or physical force of any means.

Instead of acknowledging your response to criticism is excessive, he justifies your unethical response to criticism with this ridiculous explanation. Yet this is a man who says Jesus is not a God. A comment that would have gotten him burned at the stake in Europe 500 YEARS ago. This mentality right here is why so many people look at Islam as being backwards.
Religions are belief & faith based... all religions with their own god/s are belief & faith based, when questioned with rationality, logic and reasoning they are offended and retaliate...yet they go on passing their faith & belief as facts, as proof and evidence, which is the realm of science, experiment and knowledge...if whoever wants to believe and have faith in their chosen religion its their personal choice...but passing belief as evidence based fact is ridiculous, just like saying Santa Clause and Tooth fairy evidence based facts.

Wow you must have received an honorary doctorate because that was the most idiotic explanation I’ve ever heard. muslims are sensitive because they oppress non muslims in their own countries to the point where they kill them, they immigrate here and their people commit heinous acts in the name of islam. Their religion is based on hate and smiting “infidels” aka non muslims. Then they expect everyone here to kiss up to them despite antagonizing the U.S. and everything it stands for.

Moslems can criticize anyone they please in the most bigoted manners if they so will. But if you as a humanist with relative intellectual abilities respectfully display points of Islamic doctrines that are unethical or immoral than you're an Islamophobe worthy of death. Is it any wonder that little Singapore or Israel or Switzerland pioneers more than the Islamic world combined!

It means,Islam doesn't have answers of criticism stuffs & incomptency of logical convincing thus they use violence rather answers.Quran is a feeble religious literature on the comparison of others that's why they are scared when intellectual question arises,use violence against.

Arahan alhaqiqat (1 year ago)
Why Muslims lie? Because Allah gave permission to lie. The proves:- Quran (2:225)"Allah does not impose blame upon you for what is unintentional in your oaths, but He imposes blame upon you for what your hearts have earned. And Allah is Forgiving and Forbearing." Quran(3:28) "Let not believers take disbelievers as allies rather than believers. And whoever [of you] does that has nothing with Allah, except when taking precaution against them in prudence. And Allah warns you of Himself, and to Allah is the [final] destination." Quran(5:89) "Allah will not impose blame upon you for what is meaningless in your oaths, but He will impose blame upon you for [breaking] what you intended of oaths. So its expiation is the feeding of ten needy people from the average of that which you feed your [own] families or clothing them or the freeing of a slave. But whoever cannot find [or afford it] - then a fast of three days [is required]. That is the expiation for oaths when you have sworn. But guard your oaths. Thus does Allah make clear to you His verses that you may be grateful."
Arahan alhaqiqat (1 year ago)
Prophet muhammad and his Allah don't agree with jakir naik. Quran (4:89) - "They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another). So take not Auliya' (protectors or friends) from them, till they emigrate in the Way of Allah (to Muhammad). But if they turn back (from Islam), take (hold) of them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliya' (protectors or friends) nor helpers from them."   Quran (9:11-12) - "But if they repent and establish worship and pay the poor-due, then are they your brethren in religion. We detail Our revelations for a people who have knowledge. And if they break their pledges after their treaty (hath been made with you) and assail your religion, then fight the heads of disbelief - Lo! they have no binding oaths - in order that they may desist." Other verses that seem to support the many Hadith that establish the death sentence for apostates are Quran verses 2:217, 9:73-74, 88:21, 5:54, 9:66. HADITH AND SIRAH Sahih Bukhari (52:260) - "...The Prophet said, 'If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.' " Sahih Bukhari (83:37) - "Allah's Apostle never killed anyone except in one of the following three situations: (1) A person who killed somebody unjustly, was killed (in Qisas,) (2) a married person who committed illegal sexual intercourse and (3) a man who fought against Allah and His Apostle and deserted Islam and became an apostate." Sahih Bukhari (84:57) - [In the words of] "Allah's Apostle, 'Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'" Sahih Bukhari (89:271) - A man who embraces Islam, then reverts to Judaism is to be killed according to "the verdict of Allah and his apostle." Sahih Bukhari (84:58) - "There was a fettered man beside Abu Muisa. Mu'adh asked, 'Who is this (man)?' Abu Muisa said, 'He was a Jew and became a Muslim and then reverted back to Judaism.' Then Abu Muisa requested Mu'adh to sit down but Mu'adh said, 'I will not sit down till he has been killed. This is the judgment of Allah and His Apostle (for such cases) and repeated it thrice.' Then Abu Musa ordered that the man be killed, and he was killed. Abu Musa added, 'Then we discussed the night prayers'" al-Muwatta of Imam Malik (36.18.15) - "The Messenger of Allah said, "If someone changes his religion - then strike off his head." Reliance of the Traveller (Islamic Law) o8.1 - "When a person who has reached puberty and is sane voluntarily apostatizes from Islam, he deserves to be killed." (o8.4 affirms that there is no penalty for killing an apostate).

Please tell me 10 invention invented in Islam Since Islam form. There is only two condition. One is invention should be before 19th century.( Nowadays people shifting to any where in the world for education, research and jobs.) Second is this invention should be useful for any one. ( Nuclear bomb is not useful for me as a individual I'm not denying fact that this will save my nation but still not useful for me on daily basis.) Invention should be in any form. Like, Art, Science, Economy, Maths, Astronomy, Weapons etc. For Example. 1) Zero invented in India without it we can't live a single day. 2) Glasses (spectacles) invented in Northern Italy once in life time every one have to use. If you don't need in this age you have to use when you cross 80. ect. I did lots of research on this I could found only one invention that is Algebra. That person from Greek not from Arab. Islam is very rigid, orthodox, not allow you to explore, as per Islam womens are just for production and sexual satisfaction. Islam is very cruel and corrupt religion in sura 4.34 said that strike on women if they dont listen you. Muhammad said in sura 9.40, Give bribe to people to change others religion. What a messenger. Muslim know that they can not win this world on basis of technology. So they entered in europe by begging and now they are demanding for MOSQUE not for education. They just want to spread Islam all over the world. After that they will fight between them in Shia and Sunni Cast like now days are fighting in seria. Because of Quran entire world is suffering. [ 26/11(India), 9/11(US) ]. Quran is just written in random way. Their is no deep thought. This religion is only for whose IQ is below 90. Most poor population found in Muslims because they following Quran. In India 80% Muslims are below poverty line. 68% criminals are Muslim in India. When ordinary Muslim become more religious he/she become terriorist and when Hindu becomes more religious he becomes Sanyasi ( He/she left everything and just start chanting of GOD ). Nobody can't defeat Alexander but Indian Yogi defeats him. In India Muslim rural applied so much extra tax on Hindus because of this survival question aries and then lower cast Hindu converted in Islam.Because they were so poor. This Tax called " Jijiya kar". If you ask each and every Hindu, what is Hinduism ? You will get different answer from everyone. That is called Hinduism. I'm not saying follow Hinduism. Just read 10 Pages of Bhagavad Gita and if you found something interesting then continue reading. Otherwise leave it. I could read Quran 80% because after that I can't found anything new. If you did this Allah will punish you. If you not done this then also Allah will punish you. Nothing else is talk in Quran. There is not written anything that get even little difficult to understand other hand hinduism is very difficult to understand. And difficult things make your life easy and interesting. Please google yourself and see what kind of king happen when Muslims are ruling India. Muslim king are killed their own father and family for enjoyment. Also read about The Great Warrior Shivaji Maharaj. Please Open your EYES. Dont look at them as a sympathetically. When they get power they start again massacre just they did in Myanmar and every day do in some part of the world. Accept Islam if you want to do official gangbang.

Muslims love a paedophile more than their own children. The sick bastards! Would they still love him if it had been their own 9-year-old daughter that he'd been fucking?
Moiz Ahmed (1 year ago)
gulleyjimson It's a Misconception that Aisha was age 9 when she married Muhammad (pbuh) First it is important to provide some background information: Muhammad (pbuh) was married to an older woman Khadija (a widow) for 25 years and maintained a monogamous relationship until her death. When the Muslims were forced to move from Mecca to Yathrib (re-named Medina literally meaning the city but later construed to mean the city of the prophet), Muhammad (pbuh) had studied and practiced some Judaism as Arab Jews had occupied Yathrib/Medina for many years. Early Judaism allowed polygamy. Some of examples of this include the early patriarchs of the faith like Lamech, Abraham, Esau, Jacob, David, Solomon to name a few. Further, the Mosaic Law specifically permitted polygamy in Exodus (21:10), Leviticus (19:20) and Deuteronomy (21:15-17). It is only logical to assume that since Muhammad (pbuh) was monogamous for many years with Khadija, that Judaism influenced his acceptance of polygamy. However, Muhammad (pbuh) only married widows (most of which lost husbands in battle) with the exception of Aisha. Aisha is not mentioned by name in the Qur’an but this does not mean she didn’t exist. She is mentioned in other sources like the hadith collection. The tribal expectations of that era were very stringent regarding sexual relations and girls were expected to reach puberty before consummation. It is possible Aisha reached puberty at an early age but much older than 9. Records of ages in the 7th century are inaccurate. Aisha is said to have joined Muhammad (pbuh) during the Battle of Badr, in 624 CE. However, because no one below the age of fifteen was allowed to accompany solders in battle, Aisha should have been at least fifteen in 624 CE and thus at least thirteen when she was married following the Hijra in 622 CE. A prime example of the inconsistencies of age records during the antiquity period would be Mary, mother of Jesus. Some sources have Joseph being 90 years of age and Mary being 12. Mary was likely older probably 13-15 when she married Joseph who was probably much younger than 90. Modern day rules did not apply to the antiquity era which includes 7th century Arabia. The only expectation for females and marriage was reaching puberty.
G R-S (1 year ago)
Unbelievable. "Islam allows free speech" he says and then says "as long as there is proof and there is no maligning". So, there is no free speech at all- you are not allowed to criticise whatsoever. And the justification given is that Muslims love God and the prophet more than themselves. I'm interested about this. Was the prophet not just a mere mortal? Why does the prophet have this special veneration?
Ridho Ardi Pratama (1 year ago)
well, if it is not because of the prophets people wouldn't know religion. and they are the one who suffers a lot when spreading them. this is why the muslims love muhammad (pbuh), christians love jesus christ (pbuh), and the jews love moses (pbuh). and yes, prophets are mortal human beings. they are chosen people by God Almighty Himself so that He can spread his messages to human beings. long story short, what made the prophets so special to their own people is because they are the one who spread God's messages to them and suffers a lot when spreading the messages. i hope i can answer your question
