This post is nothing but a “SLAP ON THE FACE OF RELIGIOUS ZEALOTS WHO GIVE FORCE TWISTED INTERPRETATIONS TO SUIT THEIR SELFISH PROPAGANDA”
Below are some verses which are repeatedly used by many fanatics(under the guidance of fools like Zakir Naik) to prove that Hindus are following wrong path, which is not as per Veda, but to my surprise they failed to quote the VERSES FULLY and taking partial hymns in Vedas they want to prove that the entire faith is fake.
As Hindus are less versed in their scriptures they are easy prey to these faiths. As a Hindu it is our duty to defend our faith by knowing our scriptures & answer these fanatics.
Because - “DHARMO RAKSHATI RAKSHITAH” - In the protection of Dharma is our protection.
So my dear brothers & sisters I hereby request you to pls spread this article in all possible ways
Starting with his definition of term “HINDU”.
Zakir Naik:- ‘Hindu’ is actually a Persian word that stands for the inhabitants of the region beyond the Indus Valley & nowhere in the Hindu scriptures there is mention of word “Hindu”
The Truth: The word Hindu is derived from the Sanskrit word Sindhu, first mentioned in the Rig Veda, was the historic local appellation for the Indus River in the northwestern part of the Indian subcontinent.
The Brihaspati Agama says:
Himalyam samarabhya yaavad indusarovara,
Tam deva nirmitam desham HINDUSTANAM prachakshyate
The land created by the gods which is stretched from the Himalayas to the Indu (i.e. Southern) ocean is called Hindusthan.
Here the word Hindu is clearly mentioned in word “Hindusthan”.
Suggestion to Zakir Naik: First read all the Vedic Scripture under the guidance of a Bonafide spiritual master.
Mr. Zakir claims “ISLAM IS THE ONLY TRUE RELIGION”
Truth : If that is so, y was it revealed only 1400 years ago, when we all know through science as well as Vedic texts that the existence of human beings goes back to millions of years ago, y did GOD leave those people in ignorance & conceal the truth, until this last age.
But Vedic scriptures are revealed at the same time as that of creation…
To substantiate his above statement zakir says:-
Noah, Solomon, David, Abraham, Moses, Isaac and Jesus prophets who appeared at different times and places all propagated Islam & Islam in its pure and original form was transmitted through Prophet Muhammad (pbuh).
Truth: Does he think that GOD needs to revise his revelations?
GOD is All Perfect & Possess All Knowledge in Complete full….If GOD reveals something then that has to be Perfect & Pure…
Even if we consider zakir’s words for the sake of argument then again, why did GOD conceal this pure & original knowledge until this last age. Y does GOD want His children to be with improper & impure knowledge for the millions of years after creation.
But Vedic scriptures are revealed at the same time of creation, & it has never been revised till date & whatever that has been revealed at that time remains perfect till today….
The scientists also have verified the Vedic Assertions….
So now it is left to the people to understand which is the true & eternal religion.
Zakir uses the following verses for confusing & brainwashing Hindus
Zakir Naik: "Ekam evadvitiyam" - [Chandogya Upanishad 6:2:1]
"He is One only without a second."
The truth: “ekam-evAdvitIyam brahma” - chAndogya-upanishad: 6 .2.1
Brahman is one, one & only, without a second.
Suggestion to Zakir Naik: Yes He is one without a second we all believe it, But Please quote full and correct verses and yes we call him “Brahman”
(it should be noted that Brahma & Brahman are two different words. Brahma is the creator of this universe & Brahman refers to “The Absolute Truth” ie GOD)
& yes Supreme GOD is ONE without a second but who can restrict that All Mighty God not to have different forms
& my question to Zakir naik is – “who is that One All Mighty GOD Referred here as Brahman?”
If he had sincerely read the Vedas he would know who is that person(Veda Purusha/Vedanta Vedya) who is always been referred in scriptures
Here is the answer
Tad vishnoh paramam´ padam´
sada pasyanti surayah diviva caksur atatam…. - Rig veda samhita (1.22.20):
"The Personality of Godhead Vishnu is the Absolute Truth, whose lotus feet all the demigods are always eager to see. Like the sun, He pervades everything by the rays of His energy. He appears impersonal to imperfect eyes."
The Purusha Sukta in Rig Veda confirms by the verses
"Hereeshca Te Lakshmischa Patniyow aho ratre parshve"
I.e the whole purusha sukta which glorifies the supreme lord of the universe, who is cause of the creation, supreme sustainer is none other than lakshmi pathi narayana(lakshmischa patniyow).
From the Narayanatharva-sira Upanishad (1-2):
Narayanad eva samutpadyante, Narayanat pravartante, Narayane praliyante
atha nityo Narayanah
Narayana evedam´ sarvam´, yad bhutam´ yac ca bhavyam
suddho deva eko Narayana na dvitiyo 'sti kascit.
"It is from Narayana only that everything is generated, by Him only that everything is maintained, and by Him only that everything is annihilated. Therefore Narayana is eternally existing. Everything that exists now or will be created in the future is nothing but Narayana, who is the unadulterated Deity. There is only Narayana and nothing else."
Again In the Vedanta, we find the verse
"Eko ha vai Naaraayana Aasit, Na brahma nesaanaha" and
"Apahatapaapma Divyo devaha Eko Naaraayana:"
These verses clearly say that the supreme self called as "Sat", "Aatma" and "Brahman" is none other than "Naaraayana".
"Krinastu bhagavan svayam" - Srimad bhagavatam
Krishna is the bhagavan himself
"iti rama padaneshv parabramha bhidyate" - Padma Purana
It is to be known that the Supreme Parabrahman is none other than Sri Rama.
Save devo eko asya Narayana, na divitiyacha Kaschit – Yajur veda
There is only one God Narayana & no second
Zakir says: Muslims say Everything is God’s & Hindus say Everything is ‘God’
Truth: Sri Vishnu or Narayana is the only supreme personality of godhead or GOD as mentioned above & all others are his subordinates.
Lord Shiva, Ganesha, Bramha, Indra & all others are assigned to carry out a different tasks of universal administration & they are called “Devathas” or “Demi-gods” & not GOD
Lord Vishnu has innumerable forms & He is simultaneously Sri Rama, Narasimha, Krishna, Vamana, Kalki…etc…
All incarnations of Sri Vishnu are called Vishnu tattva/Ishwara tattva & they all are to be addressed as the same supreme personality of God head & are equally worshippable as said in Bramha samhita
“Advaitam achyutam anadim ananta rupam…..”
So clearly there is no POLYTHEISM in Hinduism, but people do worship Lord Ganesha, Lord Hanuman, Lord Shiva, Mother Parvathi etc…Either to gain some material benefit or to gain Bhakthi & gradually come to the position of understanding “Vasudevam Sarvam Iti” (Come to platform of understanding Vasudeva or Narayana is the cause of all causes & finally worship Him alone)
They do worship other Devathas knowing their highly elevated position of directly serving the Supreme Personality of Godhead Narayana …
We Hindus pay our obeisance to each & every living entity knowing that the supreme lord is situated in each & every living entity’s heart as Paramathma…..
WE DO NOT SAY EVERYTHING IS GOD, But we do say GOD IS PRESENT IN EVERYTHING as GOD is all pervasive & omnipresent….. below is the Proof:-
hrdi-deshe arjuna tisthati
yantrara rudhani mayaya – Bhagavad- gita18.61
The Supreme Lord is situated in everyone’s heart, O Arjuna, and is directing the wanderings of all living entities, who are seated as on a machine, made of the material energy.
Dear Zakirrrr for your kind information We hindus have not been taught any “EGO-PERSONIFIED” teachings like “DON’T EVEN BOW YOUR HEAD IN FRONT OF YOUR MOTHER & MOTHERLAND”, But rather we have been taught-
Trnad api sunicena, taror api sahishnuna
amanina manadena, kirtaniyah sada harih – Sikshashtaka - 3
In a humble state of mind, thinking oneself lower than the straw (blade of grass) in the street; one should be more tolerant than a tree, devoid of all sense of false prestige, and should be ready to offer all respect to others irrespective of their reciprocation. In such a state of mind one should always chant the holy name of Lord Sri Hari constantly.
Again Zakir Naik qoutes: "Na casya kascij janita na cadhipah."
"Of Him there are neither parents nor lord." - [Svetasvatara Upanishad 6:9]
The Truth: “na tasya kaścit patir asti loke na ceśitā naiva ca tasya liṅgaṃ,
sa kāraṇaṃ karaṇādhipādhipo na cāsya kaścij janitā na cādhipaḥ” -[Svetasvatara Upanishad 6:9]
He has no master in the world, no ruler, nor is there even a sign of Him by which He can be inferred. He is the cause, the Lord of the lord of the organs; and He is without progenitor or controller.
Yes of course lord Vishnu is the unborn(Ajanma) & infallible(Achuta). He is the supreme father of all as described in Bhagavad-Gita 14.4- “sarva yonisu kaunteya………… aham-bija-pita”
But whenever he comes to earth to Re-establish the Principles of Dharma he accepts & gives opportunity to his QUALIFIED DEVOTEES to become his mother, father, brother or sister thereby fulfilling their desire to enjoy “VATSALYA-RASA” with him.
It doesn’t mean that he took birth from them & had no existence before that….
This is the high level of spiritual understanding about GOD & GOD’s relationship with his confidential devotees…..
“THE HEARTLESS, SNEAKY, INHUMANE KILLERS OF INNOCENT COWS CANNOT UNDERSTAND SUCH HIGHLY ELEVATED SPIRITUAL TRUTH IE “TATTVA-JNYANA”
& the most famous & controversial of all verses quoted by this foolish Zakirr:
"Na tasya pratima asti"
"There is no likeness of Him."- [Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:19]
The truth: “nainam ūrdhvaṃ na tiryañcaṃ na madhye parijagrabhat,
na tasya pratimā asti yasya nāma mahad yaśaḥ”
No one can catch hold of Him either from above, or across, or in the middle. Has NO ONE TO BE SIMILAR TO HIM (LIKE THAT OF HIM). His name is Great Glory (Mahad Yasah).
& he also quotes a similar verse from Yajur Veda & gives a DIFFERENT translation to EMPHASIZE HIS “ADVANCED FOOLISHNESS”
Zakir naik: "na tasya pratima asti - [Yajurveda 32:3]
"There is no image of Him."
Truth: "Na Tasya Pratima Asti, Yasya Nam Mahadyash
Hiranyagarbh Ityesha Ma Ma Hinsidit yesha Yasmanna Jat Ityesha" - [Shukla Yajur Veda 32.3]
The supreme Lord who is described as the cause of all creation (golden womb or Hiranyagarbh), the Un-born (Yasman na Jaat), the non-violent(Ma Ma Hinsit), whose name and glory is extremely broad(mahad-yasha), Has NO ONE TO BE SIMILAR TO HIM(IE NO ONE CAN EQUAL HIM IN ANY WAY).
The word pratima according to Vedic Sanskrit dictionary refers to similarity (Pratima can also mean shadow, pattern, equivalence, example, reflection, replica & resemblance ie the metaphor of some attributes but clearly NOT IMAGE as SANSKRIT WORD FOR IMAGE IS CHITRAMA & NOT PRATIMA)
(The usage of word pratima can be as follows:- Yuddhistira is the pratima of Dharma, Karna is the pratima of charity etc….But this fool Zakirrr cannot even understand BASIC SANSKRIT GRAMMAR & gives discourses on Vedic verses)
Another word in the verse is Asti. Asti means “to be,” “to exist,” “to live,” or “to constitute.” The verse therefore begs to be translated as “there is no one living or existing in any way similar to Him.”
Yes, the verdict of the Vedic literatures is God is one without a second. But that doesn’t mean He is formless…. Zakirr naik and his followers should read the 112 principal Upanisads before concluding that God is formless.
For example, the Gopala-tapani Upanisad 5 (1.10, 1.35, 1.1, 1.24) speaks about the form of the Supreme Lord.
The Katha Upanisad (2.2.13, 2.3.10 to 16) also explains the form of God.
This is also confirmed in the Svetasvatara Upanisad (3.8-9), which substantiates the above verses by saying,
“I know that Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is transcendental to all material conceptions of darkness. Only he who knows Him can transcend the bonds of birth and death. There is no way for liberation other than this knowledge of that Supreme Person. There is no truth superior to that Supreme Person, because He is the super most. He is smaller than the smallest, and He is greater than the greatest. He is situated as a silent tree, and He illumines the transcendental sky, and as a tree spreads its roots, He spreads His extensive energies.”
From these verses, one concludes that the Supreme Absolute Truth is the Supreme Personality of Godhead, who is all-pervading by His multi-energies, both material and spiritual.
In fact, the Quran itself mentions GOD’s form. One can read the following verses from the Quran to be convinced that God has form:
Surah: Ayat (Chapter: Verses): 55.27, 20.39, 38.75, 39.67, 48.10, 96.14, 52.48, 20.39, 54.14, and many more from the Hadiths…
(Translated by Dr. Muhammad Taqi-ud-Din Al-Hilali and Dr. Muhammad Muhsin Khan and approved by the Ministry of Islamic Affairs, Saudi Arabia and published world over by the Saudi Kingdom for free distribution through their Embassies in different countries)
Here is the translation of first one ie 55.27 – “And the face of your lord full of majesty & honor will abide for ever”
& Mr. Yusuf Ali’s translation says:- “but will abide(forever) the face of thy lord full of majesty bounty & honor
Look at the words “FACE OF YOUR LORD” if the lord has face how can he be formless
The second one ie 20.39 :- “Saying: Put him(the child) into the tabut & put in to the river(Nile), then the river shall cast it up on the bank, & there an enemy of mine & enemy of his shall take him.” I endued you with love from me, in order that you may be brought up under my eye.
(Note - Here the speaker is Allah) Look at the words “UNDER MY EYE”… It means Allah has eyes
& third one ie 38.75:- Allah said: “O iblis(satan)! What prevents you from prostrating yourself to one whom I have created with both my hands. Are you too proud (to fall prostate to adam) or are you one of the high exalted?
Look at words “i have created with both my hands”….
Here ALLAH HIMSELF IS ASCERTAINING That he has hands but this FOOLISH ZAKIRR IS DENYING!!!!!!!
Does this Fakirrrr considers himself to be more intelligent than “Allah”????
Zakir Naik: "Na samdrse tisthati rupam asya,
na caksusa pasyati kas canainam."
"His form is not to be seen; no one sees Him with the eye." [Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:20]
The Truth: “na saṃdṛśe tiṣṭhati rūpam asya na cakṣuṣā paśyati kaścanainaṃ,
hṛdā hṛdisthaṃ manasā ya enam evaṃ vidur amṛtās te bhavanti “ - [Svetasvatara Upanishad 4:20]
His form is not an object of vision, no one beholds Him with the eyes. They who, through pure intellect and the Knowledge of Unity based upon reflection, realize Him as abiding in the heart become immortal.
Here “no one beholds with the eyes” means no one can see his transcendental form with his material eyes as God(Sri Hari) is called Adhoksaja which means one who cannot be perceived by material senses….he is Achintya(Inconceivable)…..
his form(rupa), his activites, & pastimes can only be understood through spiritual senses….so to understand him either we have to purify ourselves to spiritualize our senses or hear from the spiritual master who is already in that Transcendental platform
And when one develops spiritual eyes(divya chakshu) one can see him as confirmed in Sri Bramha Samhita 5.13
'Premanjana chhurita bhakti vilochanene santa sadaiva hrudayeshv vilokayanti,
Yam shyamasundaram achintya guna svarupam govindam adi purusham tamaham bhajami.
O Govinda, the primeval lord, your devotee whose eyes are tinged by the ointment of love of godhead see your inconceivable beautiful form of Shyamasundara with innumerable attributes always within their hearts.
Zakir naik: "shudhama poapvidham" - [Yajurveda 40:8]
"He is bodyless and pure."
Truth: "Sa Paryagaachukramkayam vranmasnaveer shuddhampapviddham
kavirmanishi paribhuh svayambhur yathatath yatorthan vyad ghacha ashwatibhyah samabhyah"
- [Yajurveda 40:8]
He (The Supreme person) is all pervasive, magnificent, nerveless and doesn’t have pores(ie he don’t have material body like us which is composed of flesh, bones & nerves but has a transcendental body ie he is a sat-chit-ananda vigraha). HE IS THE ABODE OF PURITY(SHUDDHA DHAMA) & SINLESS(PAAPA-VIDDHAM). He is poet (Kavir –manishi, here poet means he can create anything he imagines), he himself is language (ruler of mind, from where the words come), victorious and the one created by himself(svayambhur). He is the unchanging since eternity & source of all sources & is all-qualified.
Clearly in this verse there is no mention of Bodyless word in the verse.
Proof for claiming GOD is Sat-Chid-Ananda vigraha
Ishwara paramah krishnah
anadir adir govindah
sarva-karana-karanam – Bramha samhita 5.1
Krishna who is known as Govinda is the Supreme Godhead. He has an eternal blissful spiritual (SAT-CHIT-ANANDA) body. He is the origin of all. He has no other origin and He is the prime cause of all causes.
Zakir naik: "Andhatama pravishanti ye asambhuti mupaste"- Yajurveda 40:9
"They enter darkness, those who worship the natural elements" (Air, Water, Fire, etc.). "They sink deeper in darkness, those who worship sambhuti."
& Based on this verse & above mentioned verse “na tasya pratima asti”, this Fakirr naik condemns deity/Idol worship done by the Hindus to make them loose their faith & convert to Islam (as deities & images that we worship daily in our Temples & houses are made up of natural elements).
Truth:- "Andham tamah Pra Vishanti Yesambhutimupaste
Tato Bhuya Iva Te Tamo Ya Oo Sambhutyam rata" - [Yajurveda 40:9]
Those people, who worship separation-destruction and are playing in such activities only, they enter darkness (here darkness is ignorance) and get surrounded by it and those who worship making organization-creation only, they also enter the darkness of ignorance.
Here to note, worship means remain engaged in, and sambhuti is gathering and asambhuti means division, and engagement in such activities relates with, engaging in material life, FORGETTING THE SUPREME TO BE WORSHIPPED EQUALLY AND DAILY. Here it is NOWHERE mentioned about worship of natural elements" (Air, Water, Fire, etc.).
MENTION OF IMAGE/DIETY WORSHIP IN SCRIPTURES (I have deliberately mentioned the references from Sruti Sastra’s which are a sufficient Veda Pramana, so that nobody can dare to deny them nor later have doubts on the topic):-
From Yoga Vashishtha :
"For those who have not known the essential nature of Deity, the worship of form and the like has been prescribed. To one who is incapable of (travelling) a distance of one Yojana (eight miles), a distance of one Krosa (two miles) is provided."
From The Bhagavad Gita, Ch.12, Verse 5 :
"Greater is their trouble whose minds are set on the Unmanifested(formless nature of GOD); for the goal, the Unmanifested, is very hard for the embodied to reach".
In the Brihadaranyaka Upanishad, 4-14 :
The wife of sage Yajnyavalkya, and she herself a soul far advanced in the spiritual path, says to her husband:
"Constituted as we are, we need something concrete to fix our minds on and stir our imagination before we can think of subtler ideas".
From The Mahabharata Santi Parva, section CCXVII. (Translated by Sri Kisari Mohan Ganguli)
Bhishma said: "Some worship Brahman in images. Some worship Him as existing in attributes. Some repeatedly realise the highest Divinity which has been described to be like a flash of lightning and which is again indestructible. Others who have burnt their sins by penances, attain to Brahman in the end. All those high-souled persons attain to the highest end."
And there is a whole body of Vedic literature called the Pancharatras where the concept of deity is mentioned and elaborated. In fact the Pancharatras primarily focuses on deity worship.
So there are two broad spiritual paths talked about in the Vedic literature
1) one is the negation of matter for attainment of spirit and the other is the 2) Utilisation of the matter as a pathway to the spirit.
The Bhakti path(Bhakti marga) which is the conclusion of the Upanishads is mentioned but not elaborated in the Upanishads. Bhakti is elaborated in the Itihaas and Puranas and there it is very clearly mentioned that although the Absolute truth is spiritual it is not that we have to reject all matter. Matter can also be used as a path way for spirit and one such path way is the Deity.
SO DEITY IS NOT CONSIDERED A MATERIAL REPRESENTATION BUT A “SPIRITUAL MANIFESTATION”.
Zakir naik: “Those whose intelligence has been stolen by material desires worship demigods” that is “Those who are materialistic, they worship demigods” i.e. others as deities besides the True God. - (Bhagavad Geeta 7:20)
Truth: Yes, I have explained u already about worship of Demi-gods & the Bhagawad Gita also clearly mentions that True GOD which your trying to deny from the very beginning
Zakir naik also uses the following verse in HALF to substantiate the above verse:
“He who knows Me as the unborn, as the beginning-less, as the Supreme Lord of all the worlds...” - Bhagavad Geeta 10:3
Truth: He who knows Me as the unborn, as the beginningless, as the Supreme Lord of all the worlds—he only, un-deluded among men, is freed from all sins - Bhagwad Geeta 10:3
Yes we do agree at this, but who is that word “ME” here, who is the speaker, who himself is ascertaining his Superiority over Demi-gods & all creatures…..
Even small children know that Sri Krishna himself is the speaker who is enlightening Arjuna in the battlefield…. but why r u denying the supremacy of Sri Krishna Mr.zakir naik????
This clearly shows cunning nature of Zakir naik to use half verses & twisted translations to suit his own selfish propaganda
Sri krishna himself clearly says in Bhagavad-Gita that he is the supreme controller, Supreme maintainer, Supreme Sustainer of the universe in many of the verses of Bhagavad-Gita
jnyatva mam shantim racchati - BG-5.29
A person in full consciousness of Me, knowing Me to be the ultimate beneficiary of all sacrifices and austerities, the Supreme Lord of all planets and demigods, and the benefactor and well-wisher of all living entities, attains peace from the pangs of material miseries.
Again in BG-10.2, BG-10.3, BG-10.8, BG-10.12-13, BG-10.15, BG-10.20, BG-9.4, BG-9.8, BG-9.10, & still many more.
Now zakir naik says: “Jihad(Fighting) is been prescribed in the Bhagavad Gita too”
Truth: The fighting that is prescribed by Krisna to Arjuna is against Adharma, Sri Krishna tells Arjuna TO KILL THE EVIL MEN, who are against Dharma…..Krishna is telling to fight FOR THE PROTECTION OF DHARMA(RIGHTEOUSNESS)
He was not telling to wage war against infidels, Kafirs, pagans, mushriks or non-believers of a particular sect or religion…. it is not the fight to collect jizya(tax for being a non believer), it was not the war in which women, children & innocent citizens are killed in the name of religion….it was not the war in which houses were lit on fire in the middle of night, it was not a war in which temples & churches are been destroyed.
Even though the war was fought between more than millons of kshatriyas, Not even a single child or women was killed in it, nor a single girl or women was taken as captive & made a sex slave or sold in “BABUR MARKET” for money.
Even the kauravas who were demoniac in nature had the COMMON SENSE of NOT TO ATTACK ANY WOMEN & CHILDREN…..They fought heroically, ONLY WITH ARMED MEN OF EQUAL STRENGTH, ONE ON ONE.
It was not a war for forcible conversion of people to accept a particular faith… But rather it was a war to protect the whole humanity from the evil forces.
Zakir naik:- Many critics of Islam including Arun Shourie quote Surah Al-Tawbah chapter 9 verse 5
“… Fight and slay the Mushrik/Kafir (Hindu) wherever you find them …” (Al Qur’an 9:5)
If you read the Qur’an, this verse exists but it is quoted out of context by Arun Shourie.
It is for the battlefield that Allah says “fight and slay the Mushriks (i.e. the enemies from Makkah) wherever you find them and seize them, beleaguer them, and lie in wait for them in every stratagem of war”.
Truth:- First of all “why to fight against the kafirs, Mushriks & idol worshippers(Hindus), what is the need to wage war against them”
IF SOMEBODY IS FOLLOWING THEIR RELIGION & WORSHIPPING GOD BASED ON THEIR SCRIPTURES WHAT THE HELL IS YOUR PROBLEM!!!
WHO THE HELL ARE YOU PEOPLE TO PUNISH US FOR DOING IDOL WORSHIP!!!!!
This quote from Quran 9:5 may be out of context but what about the TOTAL NUMBER OF 164 VERSES THAT SPEAK ABOUT KILLING, BEHEADING, LOOTING, MAKING SEX SLAVES(RIGHT HAND POSSESSIONS), PLUNDERING THE NON MUSLIMS
Further more Zakir naik says: “No Concept of Avatar but Messenger in Veda and Islam”
Islam does not believe that Almighty God takes human forms & GOD WILL NOT AND DOES NOT TAKE HUMAN FORM
For this there is clear answer in Bhagavad-Gita-
avajananti mam mudha
manusim tanum asritam
param bhavam ajananto
mama bhuta-maheshvaram – BG- 9.11
FOOLS deride Me when I descend in the human form. They do not know My transcendental nature as the Supreme Lord of all that be.
(Now you know y I have been addressing Zakir naik as a fool)
1)To conclude about the form of God & Religious practices based on some abstruse verse and to confuse innocent Hindus seems to be the occupation of this cheater.
2)Gullible people are impressed to hear him quoting chapter numbers and verse numbers from rote memory, but you can see for yourself how his references are pathetically poor.
3) How can one who claims to be a teacher of comparative religion ignore the whole verse, take only a part of it, and distort the meaning of the verse to suit his interests? Either it is due to his sloppiness or his slyness.
4)Zakir naik is not only mistranslating Vedic scriptures & Misleading Non-Muslims but also mistranslating Quran & misleading Muslims
for eg Zakir Naik says:-
The earth is not exactly round like a ball, but geo-spherical i.e. it is flattened at the poles. The following verse contains a description of the earth’s shape “And the earth, moreover, Hath He made egg shaped.” [Al-Qur'aan 79:30]
The Arabic word for egg here is dahaha, which means an ostrich-egg. The shape of an ostrich-egg resembles the geo-spherical shape of the earth. Thus the Qur’aan correctly describes the shape of the earth, though the prevalent notion when the Qur’aan was revealed was that the earth is flat
The truth:- The translation of the above verse is NOT from YUSUF ALI, it’s a later day addition by apologists like Dr. Naik. Here are the three reputed translations:
YUSUFALI: And the earth, moreover, hath He EXTENDED (to a wide expanse);
PICKTHAL: And after that He SPREAD the earth,
SHAKIR: And the earth, He EXPANDED it after that.
Dr. Naik deviates from his assurance that he would quote from Yusuf Ali. He created his own translation!!! NOT A SINGLE SCHOLAR WORTH HIS SALT TRANSLATED DAHAHA AS EGG-SHAPED. Well, that’s enough to refute this concoction But let’s refute it thoroughly:
The word ‘dahaha’ DOES NOT mean Ostrich-egg…it means to flatten, roll out, spread etc as per the most trusted Arabic dictionaries. No Arabic dictionary of repute can make such a phenomenal blunder, but Dr. Naik is unfazed nonetheless, he is happy with his INNOVATION.
He must be reminded that Innovation is a GREAT SIN in Islam
Again, even if hypothetically dahaha meant egg shaped, then again, scientifically speaking, the earth is an OBLATE SPHEROID and not an OVOID like the ostrich egg
Now let’s look at other places where the Quran talks about the shape of the earth
Quran 50:7 “AND THE EARTH HAVE WE SPREAD OUT, AND have flung firm hills therein, and have caused of every lovely kind to grow thereon”. [Waal-ardaMADADNAHAwaalqay
The word used here is MADADNAHA – which means SPREAD OUT, MAKE PLAIN, FLATTEN – nothing spherical about it. [Quran 50:7]
Quran 91:6 “And the earth and Him Who SPREAD IT [Waal-ardiwamaTAHAHA]
Quran 71:19 “‘And Allah has made the EARTH FOR YOU AS A CARPET (spread out), [ WaAllahujaAAalalakumu al-ardaBISATAN ]
From the evidence above, we can safely ask Dr.#Zakir Naik to take his ostrich egg back to his ostrich farm and not confuse Muslims as well as non-Muslims on the straight forward translations of the Quranic words/verses by the most reputed scholars of Quran.
5)Dr.Naik has committed several logical fallacies. They tend to contradict each other. They say they don’t believe in HINDU scriptures once. (You can find how Zakir Naik criticizes Hindu way of worship in a section called “Conveying Islam To A Hindu”). But still he uses Hindu scriptures as authority to prove Islam’s validity!!!
Either this conveys that
*Hindu religion is truly divine.
* Allah did not give enough proofs in Quran to sustain his claims.
* All Muslims must convert to Hinduism.
* Muslim scholars are bluffing to convert Hindus just like they do to Christians
By all this one understands their eagerness to prove by hook or crook that Islam is the culmination of every religion.
6) ATTENTION!!! ALL THE ZAKIR NAIKS & their blind followers – The SINNERS & BURDEN on this earth, you are none other than a non believer who will be punished to spread lie for the one who is supreme and rules the entire world.
If you really believe that you read Vedas or know it in any form or way then try to post reality and not the half hymns. This way you are in no way ruining our faith or religion but you are the reason the CREATE CONFUSION IN YOUR OWN FAITH.
Lastly I want to ask few questions to Mr.Zakir naik (if any of his Blind follower find this article they can also respond to me)
1) Who is Allah
2) Why is Allah been confined only to 7th sky
3) Why can’t He descend on earth for the pleasure of His devotees, Who in the 3 worlds has the guts to restrict Him only upto 7th sky
4) According to vedic texts we know that the 7th sky(planetary system) is Satya loka & it is the abode of lord Bramha, the progenitor of this universe.
Satya loka is the highest planetary system in material realm & it is not eternal & is subjected to destruction at the time of complete dissolution(Kaala Ratri)
Above Satya loka there is Kailasa coming in spiritual realm which is the abode of Lord shiva
& above Kailasa there come full fledged spiritual world ie Vaikunta which is eternal, which has neither beginning nor end. It is the abode of lord Vishnu & His Innumerous incarnations who all are also eternally existing there without beginning nor end.
My question is why cannot Allah reside in Vaikunta which is indestructible…..If Allah is eternal His abode should also be eternal….
Why cannot ALLAH’S GREATNESS BE GREATER THEN YOUR CAPABILITY TO CONCEIVE, as your capacity is only limited upto 7th sky
5) & Are there any verses/Ayats in whole of the Quran & Hadith’s that say “Sri Narayana cannot be Allah”
