Dr Zakir Naik live in Shah Alam

Assalamualaikum all. Last week, me and my family went to an event named Dr. Zakir Naik Malaysian Tour 2012. It was held in Dewan Agung Tuanku Canselor, UiTM Shah Alam. Who is Dr Zakir Naik? He is the public speaker on the subject of Islam and comparative religion from India. By profession he is a medical doctor. More on him you can see Wikipedia. I've heard his name long time ago and read one of his publications on most frequent questions asks about Islam. This is the first time I've meet and heard from him live. It's a lifetime opportunity. The event started by Al-Qur'an recitation from our Malaysian brother. He recited Surah Al-An'am. Then Farid Naik given his public speech on women's rights in Islam. 

He covers from responsibility until political point of view of women in Islam. A very informative speech. Farid ends his speech with this conclusion. Men and women have different degree of advantanges, but Allah made it totally equal between male and female. He given the analogy of taking exams. Male and female take out an exam for paper A, then the result is the male got 9/10 while the female got 7/10. Then, for paper B, the result is the male got 7/10 while the female got 9/10. We can see different mark for different paper but actually it will be equal mark when we add up, that is 8/10. The male have advantages in paper A while the female have advantages in paper B.

After Farid finished his speech, then Dr Zakir Naik was introduced and take the stage. His speech titled "Universal Brotherhood". He started his speech with the universal meaning of brotherhood. Brotherhood means not only by blood relationship, race, region and colours only. He explained how people from different religion is related with each other. He mentioned this to find similarities between all people from different religion. All religion believes that there's only on true God who created and rule this universe. Allah made us different from each other in order for us to know and learn from each other.
One thing that really stick in my mind was when Dr Zakir explained what are the properties which qualifies a God as Allah, the ruler of the universe. His answer is very simple. It was explained in the Al-Quran, Surah Al-Ikhlas. The meaning from this Surah is this (taken from Institute Al-Islam website) : “Say: He is Allah, The One and Only. Allah, the Eternal, Absolute. He begets not, nor is He begotten. And there is none like unto Him.” [Al-Qur'an 112:1-4].

His speech goes on until about 1 hour before the Q&A session for the remaining 2 hours. The session was moderated by Brother Shah Kirit. He priorities the non-muslims to question out any inquiries about Islam and it's teaching. Dr Zakir handles the answer well. I love the way he spell out his answer which most of it actually from the glorious Al-Qur'an itself besides he mentioned some references from other religious book like Bible, Veda and so on to support his answer. A very informative answer and yet concise, insyaAllah.

The event end up at about 12.30am. This Friday, 5th October 2012, there will be having the same event with Dr Zakir in Kuantan with topic "The Qur'an and Modern Science" before he ends his tour on Sunday, 7th October 2012 in PWTC, Kuala Lumpur with topic "Islam's View on Terrorism and Jihad". Let's don't miss this opportunity to learn from him, insyaAllah.
