Zakir Abdul Karim Naik

Zakir Abdul Karim Naik was born on 18 October 1965 in Mumbai, India. He attended
St. Peter’s High School in Mumbai. Later he enrolled at Kishinchand Chellaram College,
before studying medicine at Topiwala National Medical College and Nair Hospital and later
the University of Mumbai, where he obtained a Bachelor of Medicine and
Surgery (MBBS). His wife, Farhat Naik, works for the women’s section of the IRF.
Zakir’s body has a high average like other Indian, He has black and white beard and a
mustache, He always uses his glasses. He smiles sweetly.
In 1991 he started working in the field of Dawah, and founded the IRF. Naik says he
was inspired by Ahmed Deedat, an Islamic preacher, having met him in 1987. (Naik is
sometimes referred to as “Deedat plus”, a label given to him by Deedat himself.) Naik says
that his goal is to “concentrate on the educated Muslim youth who have become apologetic
about their own religion and have started to feel the religion is outdated.” He considers it a
duty of every Muslim to remove perceived misconceptions about Islam and to counter what
he views as the Western media’s anti-Islamic bias in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001
attacks in the United States. Some of his articles are published in magazines such as Islamic
Anthropologist Thomas Blom Hansen has written that Naik’s style of memorising
the Quran and Hadith literature in various languages, and his related missionary activity, has
made him extremely popular in Muslim and non-Muslim circles. He has been famous since in
1991 until now. Many of his debates are recorded and widely distributed in video, DVD
media and online. His talks are usually recorded in English and broadcast on weekends on
several cable networks in Mumbai’s Muslim neighborhoods, and on the Peace TV channel,
which he co-produces. Topics he speaks on include: “Islam and Modern Science”, “Islam and
Christianity”, and “Islam and secularism”. Naik is the founder of the Islamic International
School in Mumbai.
According to him, Jihad is misunderstood by both Muslims and non-Muslims, Jihad
means to strive and struggle to make society better, the best form of Jihad is to strive and
struggle against non-Muslims, using the teachings of the Quran; to the Prophet Peace Be
Upon Him and the Almighty Allah, Islam means peace." According to Naik, the killing of
any innocent person, either Muslim or non-muslim is prohibited by Islam. The word "Jihad"
actually means to strive or struggle against one's own evil inclinations, to make the society
better, in self-defense on a battlefield, and against oppression
