Wishing Christians “Merry Christmas” Is A Sin To Allah – Islamic Cleric Warns Muslims
Zakir Abdul Karim Naik is an Indian Islamic preacher and the founder and president of the Islamic Research Foundation (IRF).
He is also the founder of the “comparative religion” Peace TV channel through which he reaches a reported 100 million viewers.
He has been called an “authority on comparative religion”, “perhaps the most influential Salafi ideologue in India”, “the rock star of tele-evangelism and a proponent of modern Islam” and “the world’s leading Salafi evangelist”.
Unlike many Islamic preachers, his lectures are colloquial, given in English, not Urdu or Arabic, and he wears a suit and tie rather than traditional garb.
