    His knowledge on Quran, Hadiths, Bible, Vedas, Upanishads is very astonishing. He can also quote many historic/medical books/journals in a second by giving exact references. I watched almost all his videos from you tube and google videos and I have become more informative about my religion and other religions now. May Allah grant him good health to continue his good works of Daa'wa(Inviting people to the Truth) for many more years to come.

    I was present at the programme. We must appreciate the organizers for their hard efforts. Besides the huge crowd, that also from different faiths and nationalities, the event went on very smooth way. The knowledge of Dr. Zakir Naik is really a God gift. A medical doctor by profession, Dr. Zakir is a genius person.
