Proving the Existence of Allah to an Atheist

by Dr Zakir Naik


Normally, when I meet an atheist, the first thing I like to do is to congratulate him and say, " My special congratulations to you", because most of the people who believe in God are doing blind belief - he is a Christian, because his father is a Christian; he is a Hindu, because his father is a Hindu; the majority of the people in the world are blindly following the religion of their fathers. An atheist, on the other hand, even though he may belong to a religious family, uses his intellect to deny the existence of God; what ever concept or qualities of God he may have learnt in his religion may not seem to be logical to him. My Muslim brothers may question me, "Zakir, why are you congratulating an atheist?" The reason that I am congratulating an atheist is because he agrees with the first part of the Shahada i.e. the Islamic Creed, ‘La ilaaha’ - meaning ‘there is no God’. So half my job is already done; now the only part left is ‘il lallah’ i.e. ‘BUT ALLAH’ which I shall do Insha Allah. With others (who are not atheists) I have to first remove from their minds the wrong concept of God they may have and then put the correct concept of one true God.


.My first question to the atheist will be: "What is the definition of God?" For a person to say there is no God, he should know what is the meaning of God. If I hold a book and say that ‘this is a pen’, for the opposite person to say, ‘it is not a pen’, he should know what is the definition of a pen, even if he does not know nor is able to recognise or identify the object I am holding in my hand. For him to say this is not a pen, he should at least know what a pen means. Similarly for an atheist to say ‘there is no God’, he should at least know the concept of God. His concept of God would be derived from the surroundings in which he lives. The god that a large number of people worship has got human qualities - therefore he does not believe in such a god. Similarly a Muslim too does not and should not believe in such false gods.
If a non-Muslim believes that Islam is a merciless religion with something to do with terrorism; a religion which does not give rights to women; a religion which contradicts science; in his limited sense that non-Muslim is correct to reject such Islam. The problem is he has a wrong picture of Islam. Even I reject such a false picture of Islam, but at the same time, it becomes my duty as a Muslim to present the correct picture of Islam to that non-Muslim i.e. Islam is a merciful religion, it gives equal rights to the women, it is not incompatible with logic, reason and science; if I present the correct facts about Islam, that non-Muslim may Inshallah accept Islam. Similarly the atheist rejects the false gods and the duty of every Muslim is to present the correct concept of God which he shall Insha Allah not refuse. (You may refer to my article, ‘Concept of God in Islam’, for more details)


The methods of proving the existence of God with usage of the material provided in the ‘Concept of God in Islam’ to an atheist may satisfy some but not all. Many atheists demand a scientific proof for the existence of God. I agree that today is the age of science and technology. Let us use scientific knowledge to kill two birds with one stone, i.e. to prove the existence of God and simultaneously prove that the Qur’an is a revelation of God.
If a new object or a machine, which no one in the world has ever seen or heard of before, is shown to an atheist or any person and then a question is asked, " Who is the first person who will be able to provide details of the mechanism of this unknown object? After little bit of thinking, he will reply, ‘the creator of that object.’ Some may say ‘the producer’ while others may say ‘the manufacturer.’ What ever answer the person gives, keep it in your mind, the answer will always be either the creator, the producer, the manufacturer or some what of the same meaning, i.e. the person who has made it or created it. Don’t grapple with words, whatever answer he gives, the meaning will be same, therefore accept it.



In mathematics there is a theory known as ‘Theory of Probability’. If you have two options, out of which one is right, and one is wrong, the chances that you will chose the right one is half, i.e. one out of the two will be correct. You have 50% chances of being correct. Similarly if you toss a coin the chances that your guess will be correct is 50% (1 out of 2) i.e. 1/2. If you toss a coin the second time, the chances that you will be correct in the second toss is again 50% i.e. half. But the chances that you will be correct in both the tosses is half multiplied by half (1/2 x 1/2) which is equal to 1/4 i.e. 50% of 50% which is equal to 25%. If you toss a coin the third time, chances that you will be correct all three times is (1/2 x 1/2 x 1/2) that is 1/8 or 50% of 50% of 50% that is 12½%.

A dice has got six sides. If you throw a dice and guess any number between 1 to 6, the chances that your guess will be correct is 1/6. If you throw the dice the second time, the chances that your guess will be correct in both the throws is (1/6 x 1/6) which is equal to 1/36. If you throw the dice the third time, the chances that all your three guesses are correct is (1/6 x 1/6 x 1/6) is equal to 1/216 that is less than 0.5 %. Let us apply this theory of probability to the Qur’an, and assume that a person has guessed all the information that is mentioned in the Qur’an which was unknown at that time. Let us discuss the probability of all the guesses being simultaneously correct.
At the time when the Qur’an was revealed, people thought the world was flat, there are several other options for the shape of the earth. It could be triangular, it could be quadrangular, pentagonal, hexagonal, heptagonal, octagonal, spherical, etc. Lets assume there are about 30 different options for the shape of the earth. The Qur’an rightly says it is spherical, if it was a guess the chances of the guess being correct is 1/30. The light of the moon can be its own light or a reflected light. The Qur’an rightly says it is a reflected light. If it is a guess, the chances that it will be correct is 1/2 and the probability that both the guesses i.e the earth is spherical and the light of the moon is reflected light is 1/30 x 1/2 = 1/60.

Further, the Qur’an also mentions every living thing is made of water. Every living thing can be made up of either wood, stone, copper, aluminum, steel, silver, gold, oxygen, nitrogen, hydrogen, oil, water, cement, concrete, etc. The options are say about 10,000. The Qur’an rightly says that everything is made up of water. If it is a guess, the chances that it will be correct is 1/10,000 and the probability of all the three guesses i.e. the earth is spherical, light of moon is reflected light and everything is created from water being correct is 1/30 x 1/2 x 1/10,000 = 1/60,000 which is equal to about .0017%. The Qur’an speaks about hundreds of things that were not known to men at the time of its revelation. Only in three options the result is .0017%. I leave it upto you, to work out the probability if all the hundreds of the unknown facts were guesses, the chances of all of them being correct guesses simultaneously and there being not a single wrong guess. It is beyond human capacity to make all correct guesses without a single mistake, which itself is sufficient to prove to a logical person that the origin of the Qur’an is Divine.


The only logical answer to the question as to who could have mentioned all these scientific facts 1400 years ago before they were discovered, is exactly the same answer initially given by the atheist or any person, to the question who will be the first person who will be able to tell the mechanism of the unknown object. It is the ‘CREATOR’, the producer, the Manufacturer of the whole universe and its contents. In the English language He is ‘God’, or more appropriate in the Arabic language, ‘ALLAH’.


Let me remind you that the Qur’an is not a book of Science, ‘S-C-I-E-N-C-E’ but a book of Signs ‘S-I-G-N-S’ i.e. a book of ayaats. The Qur’an contains more than 6,000 ayaats, i.e. ‘signs’, out of which more than a thousand speak about Science. I am not trying to prove that the Qur’an is the word of God using scientific knowledge as a yard stick because any yardstick is supposed to be more superior than what is being checked or verified. For us Muslims the Qur’an is the Furqan i.e. criteria to judge right from wrong and the ultimate yardstick which is more superior to scientific knowledge. But for an educated man who is an atheist, scientific knowledge is the ultimate test which he believes in. We do know that science many a times takes ‘U’ turns, therefore I have restricted the examples only to scientific facts which have sufficient proof and evidence and not scientific theories based on assumptions. Using the ultimate yardstick of the atheist, I am trying to prove to him that the Qur’an is the word of God and it contains the scientific knowledge which is his yardstick which was discovered recently, while the Qur’an was revealed 1400 year ago. At the end of the discussion, we both come to the same conclusion that God though superior to science, is not incompatible with it.


Francis Bacon, the famous philosopher, has rightly said that a little knowledge of science makes man an atheist, but an in-depth study of science makes him a believer in God. Scientists today are eliminating models of God, but they are not eliminating God. If you translate this into Arabic, it is La illaha illal la, There is no god, (god with a small ‘g’ that is fake god) but God (with a capital ‘G’). Surah Fussilat: "Soon We will show them our signs in the (farthest) regions (of the earth), and in their own souls, until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth. Is it not enough that thy Lord doth witness all things?" [Al-Quran 41:53)

Michael now Mikaieel

Michael Jackson has converted to Islam

changed his name to Mikaieel.

The 50-year-old star, pledged his allegiance to the Koran in a ceremony at a friend's mansion in Los Angeles, the Sun reported.

Jackson sat on the floor wearing a tiny hat after an Imam was summoned to officiate -- days before the singer is due to appear at London's [Images] High Court where he is being sued by an Arab Sheik, the paper said.

The star decided to adopt the new religion while he was recording a song at the home of his friend where a Jehovah's witness was brought up to help him through the ceremony.

India: A Fistful of Follies

A Perspective on Maharashtra incidents
Malegaon bomb blasts and the current political crisis

By Amaresh Misra

After writing so much and achieving at least something, on the recent spate of violence/bomb blasts/attacks on minorities, the Maharashtra and Assam events leaves writers and commentators like Ghulam Muhammad and me numb. The arrest of Pragya Singh, and the whole needle of suspicion towards ex and serving army officers in the 29th September Malegaon blasts has confirmed what we have been saying all along: that terror indeed has a face; that the Indian Mujahideen and SIMI were creations of the Indian security forces and the real wires of terrorism are linked inextricably to the hate/fascist ideology of the RSS-BJP. RSS-BJP in essence is a home grown, terrorist-fascist force par excellence—and it is not the first time that they have bared their fangs.I still remember a meeting with the anti-RSS, pro-Muslim Shanakaracharya Swami Swarupanand, the Shankaracharya of Dwarika and Badrinath. In this, the Shankaracharya had stated clearly and I quote, `Amaresh these Sanghis are the most criminal of all forces. They run a secret wing of assassins. They have been indulging in murder and arson since their birth. They are adharmis like Ravana and they dare to pose as Hindus! They have even tried to assassinate me!'

Importance of being Sir Syed Ahmed Khan

by Badruddin khan

Sir Syed Ahmad Khan, the greatest Muslim reformer and statesman of the 19th Century, was born in Delhi on October 17, 1817. His family, though progressive, was highly regarded by the dying Mughal dynasty and had close contacts with the Mughal court on both the maternal and the paternal sides. While his maternal grandfather, Khwajah Farid was a Wazir in the court of Akbar Shah II, his paternal grandfather, Syed Hadi, held a mansab and the title of Jawwad Ali Khan in the court of Alamgir II. Moreover his father, Mir Muttaqi, who received an allowance from the Mughal administration, had been close to Akbar Shah since the days of his prince-hood and his maternal grand father had twice served as prime minister of the Mughal emperor of his time and had also held positions of trust under the East India Company. Syed’s brother, Syed Muhammad, established one of the first printing presses at Delhi and started one of the earlier newspapers in Urdu, the principal language of the then Muslims of northern India.

Though the early years of Sir Syed's life were spent in the atmosphere of the family of a Mughal noble, there was nothing in young Syed's habits or behavior to indicate that he belonged to a highly connected family and was different from other local boys of the time, although he was distinguished on account of his extraordinary physique. As a boy he learnt swimming and archery, which were favorite sports of the well-to-do class in those days. Syed Ahmad's mother, Aziz-un-Nisa, took a great interest in the education and upbringing of her son. As admitted by Sir Syed himself, his mother imposed a rigid discipline and kept strict supervision on him which counted for much in the formation of his character. Sir Syed received his education under the prevalent traditional system. He learnt to read the Quran under a female teacher at his home. After this, he was put in the charge of Maulvi Hamid-ud-Din, the first of his male private tutors. Having completed a course in Persian and Arabic, he took to the study of mathematics, which was a favorite subject of the maternal side of his family. He later became interested in medicine and studied some well-known books on the subject. However, he soon gave it up without completing the full course.
The death of Syed’s father left the family in financial difficulties, and after a limited education Syed had no option but to work for livelihood of his family. Thus at the age of 18 or 19 his formal education came to an end but he continued his studies privately and started taking a keen interest in the literary gatherings and cultural activities of the city. The young Syed started looking for a career at the early age of 21 and decided to enter the service of the East India Company. Starting as Sarishtedar in a court of law, he became Naib Munshi in 1839 and Munshi in 1841. In 1858 he was promoted and appointed as Sadar-us-Sadur at Muradabad and in 1867 he was promoted and posted as the judge of the Small Causes Court.

Syed Ahmed had a versatile personality, and his position in the judicial department provided him ample time to be active in many fields. His career as an author (in Urdu) started at the age of 23 with religious tracts. In 1847 he brought out a noteworthy book, Asarussanadid ("Monuments of the Great"), on the antiquities of Delhi. Even more important was his pamphlet "The Causes of the Indian Revolt" in which he had explained the weakness and errors of the British administration that had led to dissatisfaction among masses and countrywide mutiny. However, during the Indian Mutiny of 1857 he had not only taken the side of the British government but also had saved lives of his immediate British officers. Widely read by British officials, the said pamphlet imparted considerable influence on British Policy. His interest in religion was also active and lifelong. He began a sympathetic interpretation of the Bible, wrote Essay on the Life of Muhammad (PBUH) (translated into English by his son), and founded time to write several volumes of a modernist commentary on the Quran. In these works he sought to harmonize the Islamic faith with scientific and politically progressive ideas of his time.
Sir Syed's greatest achievement was his Aligarh Movement, which was primarily an educational venture. At Muradabad, he established Gulshan School in 1859 and at Ghazipur he founded Victoria School in 1863 and a scientific society in 1864. When Sir Syed was posted at Aligarh in 1867, he started the Muhammadan Anglo-Oriental School in the city. Sir Syed got the opportunity to visit England in 1869-70. During his stay, he studied the British educational system and appreciated it. On his return to home he started establishing M. A. O. High School on the pattern of British boarding schools. The School later became a college in 1875. The status of University was given to the college after the death of Sir Syed in 1920. His institution played a big role in the awareness of the Muslims of South Asia first in the form of M. A. O. High School, then the College and ultimately as the Muslim University.

Unlike other Muslim leaders of his time, Sir Syed was of the view that Muslims should have friendship with the British government if they want to take their due rights. To achieve this he did a lot at his ends. At on hand he tried his level best to convince the Britishers that Muslims were not against them and on the other hand, he tried to convince his community that they could not achieve their goals unless they acquired friendly approach towards the British government. Moreover Sir Syed advised the Muslims of his time not to participate in politics unless and until they equip them with the dire need of the time, the modern education. He was of the firm opinion that Muslims could not succeed in any field without knowing the details of the field. When he was invited to attend the first session of the Indian National Congress and to join the organization, he declined the offer not for any other intention or reason except the fact that he wanted to keep himself spared only for the cause that was dearest to him and a must for his brethren. He also asked the Muslims to keep themselves away from the Congress and its political efforts arguing that, in a country where communal divisions were more important than any thing else and education and political organizations were confined to a few classes, parliamentary democracy would serve no fruitful purpose except working only inequitably. While many Muslims followed his advice and abstained from politics, several prominent Muslim personalities and groups could not control their burning desires to sacrifice even their lives for the cause of their nation and preferred to play leading and decisive role in the freedom movement. In order to provide Muslims with a platform on which they could discuss their political problems, Sir Syed established the Muhammadan Educational Conference. Unfortunately, the impulses and intentions of Sir Syed have been misunderstood and ill-taken by some bigots.

After having worked continuously and endlessly for decades Sir Syed started feeling departing signals from his health and body. In the beginning of 1898 he started keeping abnormally quiet and would not utter a word for hours together even to his friends who loved to visit him. So much so all medical aid proved to be ineffective. His condition became critical on 24th of March and on the morning of March 27; a severe headache further worsened it. This great scholar and leader died the same evening at Aligarh, in the house of his friend and well-wisher, Haji Ismail Khan, who had got him shifted to his place only some days earlier. He was buried the following afternoon in the compound of the Mosque of the then M.A.O. College and now the largest residential hall of the Muslim University, the Sir Syed Hall. Whereas He was mourned by a large number of friends and admirers both within and his community, the workers with whom he loved to remain entangled throughout the day even in scorching sun and his intimate associates with whom he had nothing to share except his feelings and valuable efforts for the cause of the community and nation in general and those of the suffering individuals who had become poor and made their offspring hungry due to their ignorance and arrogance under false claims of superiority and aristocracy.

May Allah Subhanahu-Wa-Ta-ala bless the departed soul with His the best blessings and place him in Jannat-al-Firdous.( Ameen Ya Rabbal-Alameen)

'How many terror masterminds are there?'

Interview / Syed Abdul Rehman Geelani

Terrorism in India has become almost routine. While the government, Intelligence Bureau and security agencies grope in the dark, the Opposition is on the offensive, accusing the government of completing failing in its duty to check terrorism. 
While this is one part of the story, academics feel the only way to control the menace of terror is by ensuring social justice. Also, incidents such as the Jamia Nagar shootout, which has been questioned by several fact-finding committees, will only contribute to the frustration and anger of the youth, academics feel.

Syed Abdul Rehman Geelani, an academic who was acquitted by the Supreme Court in connection with the Parliament attack case, has seen it all. He spent 20 months in jail and was a victim of the draconian POTA before the Supreme Court stepped in. Geelani spoke at length with Special Correspondent Vicky Nanjappa, sharing his views on the present scenario and what is the need of the hour if terror has to be rooted out. 

The National Human Rights Commission has served a notice to the Delhi police about the Jamia Nagar encounter. The fact-finding mission too has found many holes in the police's claim. In light of this, do you plan to seek judicial intervention in the matter?
We have demanded a judicial inquiry into the matter. However, let us first see what the Delhi police have to say in reply to the notice issued to them by the NHRC.
The police have drawn a link between the Indian Mujahideen and the Lashkar e Tayiba, which operates mainly in Jammu and Kashmir. Do you think the Kashmir insurgency is a breeding ground for terrorism in other parts of the country?
Well, for starters, one does not know what exactly this Indian Mujahideen is.
The Lashkar-e-Tayiba says it has nothing to do with the Indian Mujahideen. It is just the police which seems to be going on and on about this new outfit. Sometimes I wonder if it is a creation. No one is sure who is doing what. The police ought to come clean on all the allegations that they are making before any of us can jump to any conclusion.
What I fail to understand is before an act of terror the police has absolutely no clue, but immediately after a strike they seem to have all the details and they even claim to have nabbed the culprits. I would like to ask as to how many masterminds are there. It just raises doubts in one's mind.
What is your own take?about the Students Islamic Movement of India?
Prior to its ban SIMI was an unknown organisation. I have gone though all the papers regarding the case against SIMI and I should say there is no evidence against it. Moreover, in the affidavit filed by SIMI, they clearly state that they are not against the country. 
I have also heard the arguments in this regard. Let us not confuse ourselves here. One has to be loyal to the State and not being loyal to the governance is not an offence. What is the harm in questioning the governance? Every political party says the system has to be changed and SIMI too had raised the same point. SIMI had just said the Khilafat rule is the right rule. Even Mahatma Gandhi had said the same thing. In my view SIMI has every right to be entitled to its view and also propagate it.
As an academic, how do you think the threat of terrorism can be stemmed? Do you have a solution for this menace?
We need peace, and peace comes with social justice. When there is no peace and so much unrest, how can you expect peace? Social and economic issues and their imbalances have to be dealt with and sorted out. Only then in my view there will be peace in this country.
Are stronger laws the answer to the problem? 
I feel that stronger laws will only add to the problem. We had laws such as TADA and POTA. What happened? They were misused. As I said earlier, social and economic problems have to be sorted out first. Take the Naxal issue, for instance. Various reports suggest that this is not a law and order problem. These were directly related to social and economic issues.
Moreover, the manner in which cases are investigated too have to be given a second look. The manner in which blasts are taking place and the investigation is being conducted, only makes me think that there is something fishy.
Between the United Progressive Alliance and the National Democratic Alliance, which is more effective in terms of dealing with terrorism?
Well, both have failed in handling this problem. It is not about changing prime ministers and their respective governments. Replacing L K Advani with Dr Manmohan Singh is not the solution. Policies have to change. When I look at the functioning of both the NDA and the UPA, I have realised that in respect of both these governments, the policies have not changed. 
Look at the manner in which the IB is functioning under both governments. I have faced the IB. I only have to say that the IB is communal and criminal.
In fact, they are extremely dangerous and they are damaging the social framework of this country. Governments ought to look into such issues also.
You have dealt with a lot of cases in Hyderabad and other parts of the country, including the Jamia Nagar shootout. What change do you see among the Muslim youth? Do they feel agitated, and do they think they are being wronged?
I have been to various parts of the country looking into such issues. I have very closely seen the manner in which the police are functioning. 
As I said earlier, they don't have a clue before the blasts and immediately after it, they seem to have the entire case worked out. They have rounded up so many youth and they don't seem to have evidence too.
Yes, the youth are angry. If they continue to be prosecuted with no proof, there is every chance of them going astray and even retaliating. The issue has to be dealt with carefully and it is the duty of Muslim leaders and the youth to think collectively and fight collectively too. 
The message that I want to send out to the youth is to fight out problems collectively with Muslim leaders. Never take the fight individually, as this trend could prove dangerous.
I was told by a youth in Hyderabad that he was unable to bear the police torture and hence thought it best to own up to a crime that he had not committed. What do you have to say about this?
I completely understand what this youth was telling you. Human endurance has a level. Youth are picked up and subject to some unbearable torture. What do you expect these youth to do? There is a limit to how much the human body can take. 
Let us see if some of the lawmakers are able to bear such torture. In fact, I was once told that if some leaders were picked up and subject to similar torture, the police would get clues about a lot of incidents, including as to why Mahatma Gandhi was murdered.
Several Muslim clerics have come out in the open and condemned terror activities in the country. However, the tag against the community continues to persist. Is the community doing enough to battle perceptions?

The basic approach itself is wrong. Muslim leaders should not come out and protest against terror only with a view of saving the reputation of the community. Terror should be condemned in the right perspective. 
Terror as a whole should be condemned and this is not something that is community-oriented. Muslim leaders should do more and send out a signal that they are completely against terror. They should not be on the defensive, but should act more effectively. 
I must also add that the Bharatiya Janata Party's approach, that 'not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims', is wrong. Terrorism is not restricted to just one community.
Lastly sir, what are your thoughts on the comments made by Pakistan President Asif Ali Zardari that thosefighting for a separate Kashmir are terrorists?
Bhagat Singh, Sukhdev and Rajguru were called terrorists by the British. But were the British right? No, they were not. These people were freedom-fighters. 
The statement made by Zardari was foolish. He is unaware of the situation since he has recently taken over and it seems to me that he was overwhelmed by the Americans and it was under that influence that he made such a statement. It is an unfortunate statement. 
The Kashmir movement does not need the endorsement Zardari, and neither does it require any certification from Pakistan.
