Zakir Abdul Karim Naik was born on 18 October 1965 in Mumbai,
India. He attended St. Peter's High School in Mumbai. Later he enrolled
atKishinchand Chellaram College, before studying medicine at Topiwala
National Medical College and Nair Hospital and later the University of
Mumbai, where he obtained a Bachelor of Medicine and
Surgery (MBBS). His wife, Farhat Naik, works for the women's section
of the IRF.
In 1991 he started working in the field
of Dawah, and founded the IRF. Naik says he was inspired by Ahmed
Deedat, an Islamic preacher, having met him in 1987. (Naik is
sometimes referred to as "Deedat plus", a label given to him by Deedat
himself.) Naik says that his goal is to "concentrate on the
educated Muslim youth who have become apologetic about their own
religion and have started to feel the religion is outdated."He
considers it a duty of every Muslim to remove perceived misconceptions
about Islam and to counter what he views as the Western media's
anti-Islamic bias in the aftermath of the September 11, 2001
attacks (also known as 9/11) in the United States. Some of his
articles are published in magazines such as Islamic Voice.
Blom Hansen has written that Naik's style of memorising
the Quran and Hadith literature in various languages, and his related
missionary activity, has made him extremely popular in Muslim and
non-Muslim circles. Many of his debates are recorded and widely
distributed in video and DVD media and online. His talks are usually
recorded in English and broadcast on weekends on several cable networks
in Mumbai's Muslim neighbourhoods, and on the Peace TV channel, which he
co-produces. Topics he speaks on include: "Islam and Modern
Science", "Islam and Christianity", and "Islam and secularism".
Naik is the founder of the Islamic International School in Mumbai.
