  1. dear, dr.zakir naik,
    we are desperately waiting for your UAE trip this year,
    but we can’t able to get the information about the place and date of the programe,
    we tried from many of other sources , but we can’t, so please give me the information about your trip and place of the programme in dubai, or else plese keep in your event calander.
    thanks. jazakallah khair

  2. its not that i have any issue with you Dr. Naik but dont you think so that you kind of are one of the persons because of whom the muslim community is facing many problems ??like dont you see the case with the sania mirza. She didnt recieve the publicity because she was a muslim or whatever she recvd the publicity because she was one of the Indians who has left a mark in the world of sports!!! Any ways hope you dont take it personally ’cause this is just what i think.

    • Dear Mr. Earth,

      I agree with you and what you have said is absolutely right as Sania Mirza is one of the Indians (first) has left a mark that every Indian feel proud of it.
      But as a muslim she doesn’t stand on a ground that she is a muslim. Let me tell you first that Sania Mirza is not a Sunni Muslim, she is a shia muslim. Further which a new discussion will be started on this which I dont want to make it.

      Regards

    • DEAR MAN ON EARTH,
      u have ur opinion bt if u want comments at, then i want 2 say dat SANIA MIRZA got a remarkable place in fame bt she has even no respect if v talk abt ISLAM coz she z nt doing something ISLAM wants or needs……
      she z just a lady with a good name nt best in a sport game bt Dr. ZAKIR NAIK is absolutly n sencerly serving the mankind includin u….
      regards n solute to my hero Dr ZAKIR NAIK, MAY MY ALLAH GIVES HIM A LONG LIFE N MORE COURAGE TO FACE TROUBLES N DIFFICULTIES IN HIS SACARD PATH.
      AMEEN

  7. I read “Mr human being on earth” comment today. thats why replying him very late.
    Muslim community is not facing any problem because of him, Muslims all around the world are getting respect just because of Dr. Zakir Naik. Okay.

    Sania mirza didn’t receive publicity because of her luck. YOu should not blame this to

    If you are non muslim then you are jealous of him. of his success and because he is spreading Islam, and telling the truth about Islam.

    because dr. zakir naik give non-Muslims a solid answer that they can’t deny !!!

    we the true muslims support him and love him because of his knowledge, wisdom and the task and work he is carrying around the globe of spreading the message of Islam and clearing the doubts of Muslims.. as this requires alot of dedication and guts.

    Well i didnt take your comment personally. i pray ALLAH that may you/and others who are not muslims can see and realize what is true and what is not true.
