[…] Dr Zakir Naik versus Dr William Campbell Published July 13th, 2006 in Comparative Religion, Polemical Rebuttals, Christianity, Islam. This is an old debate, so I am amazed that it is available online. The topic was “The Qur’an and the Bible in the Light of Science”. It was an amazing debate, and Dr Zakir Naik brilliantly defended the Muslim position and exposed the fallacies of the Christian Bible with regard to the science (or should I say, the lack of it) in it. I saw it years ago but the points are still fresh in my mind. […]
yes, i may be dimwitted at times but a person who says god is jehovah, it is automatically assumable that this person is a ‘witness’ of jehovah, even though there is the possibilty that he isn’t. This is of course what a lay person would think. visitors here aren’t scholars, however i do admit it is my simple mistake to assume that the man is a ‘different’ type of christian, not that i mean any offense.
Thank you very much for posting the videos. I had no idea they were available through Google Video.
Regarding the Jehovah issue, indeed, Dr. Campbell is not a Jehovah’s Witness, though I think that the mistake is very forgiveable for anyone who is not familiar with the minutiae of sectarian differences within Christianity, especially in this case since “Jehovah” has become so associated with the JWs. Just to be clear though, long before the JW faith was developed, “Jehovah” appeared on a few occasions in the King James translation of the Bible (beloved by so many English-speaking Protestants). Hence it is not all that uncommon for a Protestant to say “Jehovah”.
yes, indeed, exactly. Thank you Denis, you said it perfect.
Christianity is a very unique religion. This little issue, amoung others is making me think about writing an essay, or article if you will. I’m not sure if i’ll do it, i’m so lazy nowadays. I should, really. I write essays because my english teacher says i’m good at it, that i have talent. So thats the second reason i should. However…i need to get rid of this laziness. can someone help me out, i have no clue how to get rid of laziness, i just need an idea of how to do it. I promise the essay will be goooD! Pulitzer Status! lol, i just need to really get rid of this, i have a whole summer and i’m getting lazy when i’m not in school, i find this pathetic. Please, by the Mercy of ALLAH, i need some assistance, seriously. I’ll thank you in the essay itself !). Okay, that should be enough ranting. Not that i want to brag, but i am good at essays. i have my own column in the school paper, i have this site, i am an active member of islamic groups (…not lately), and all sorts of stuff. Writing is my genius.
As someone actually present at the debate your Sunni fella Mr Naik was completely trounced -as ever Islam cannot and never will overcome or transcend the message of love from Christ -to love your neighbour and turn the other cheek are such sublime God given commands – however saying that the Turkish Aleves ( who we all know are not Sunni at all ) do and practise some admirable beliefs as do the Suffis.
Al-salam alikum.. I’m fully convinced that Dr.Naik has strongly proved the unscientificity of the Bible & the authenticity of the Qur’an & I would call on all non-Muslims to embrace Islam after the solid proof presented to them that Qur’an is indeed the word of God.
I have seen the debate between Dr Naik and Pastor Rukni there is no doubt that Dr Naik is a very good orator but he actually admits Jesus was crucified (the marks of the nails of the cross showed to the disciples and then tries to maintain that Jesus escaped death. So how many people survived crucifixion ? The jews must have let him off lightly ? This is just laughable and shows willingness to deny the truth in front of his eyes. He reminds me of those american christian fundamentalists , same patter. Jesus died and was resurrected believe !!
I am not amazed for the authentic and to the point replies of extremely respectful Dr. Zakir Naik, but I am astonished for his wisdom. May be Almighty Allah has sent him this World to defend Islam against various known and unknown enemies.May Almighty Allah bestow him more than 150 years of life with the current physical energy, and Jannatul Ferdaus on the Akherat. May Almighty Allah fill his position with an equivallent person too.
When I am praying Taajud during the night, I alway repeat the above mentioned Prayer ( Du-aa ) adding that May Almighty Allah fulfill Dr. Zakir Naik and other lecturers, and all their children and my parents and other relatives, all their needs on this World and Janah on the eternal world.
may Almighty Allah facilitate my meeting with respectfull and real respectable dr. Zakir Naik.
By keeping discussion in mind I will like to share a website http://zakirnaikblog.blogspot.com which is a website about great islamic scholar Zakir Naik who made a lot oif non muslims to accept islam by his speeches.
May peace mercy and blessing of Allah almighty God be on you, may Allah almighty God give u a age of more hundred years to keep all an the siraatal mustaqkeem to non muslim’s and as well as to muslims. Aaameen
