Dr.Israh Ahmed, Dr.Zakir Naik, Shaikh Ahmed Deedat, Harun Yahya … are these scholars authentic?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by Askimam.org

(With respect to their aqeedah and i heard they are modernists? is that true? ) a) Dr.Israh Ahmed (www.tanzeem.org) b) Dr.Zakir Naik (www.irf.net) c) Shaikh Ahmed Deedat d) you (or one of your colleagues) have mentioned that ‘Harun Yahya is authentic’ whereas if u examine on www.islamdenouncesterrorism.com his views are absurd… he quotes verses of the Quran out of context and even says ‘there is no Authorative rule in Islam’ (Khilafat, rule of Taliban etc) and he promotes ‘friendship’ with the KUFAAR…please advice…is it safe just to be concerned with his ‘Islam and Science’ material and stay away from the rest (matters of aqeedah, maumlaat etc)?

Answer

1. We do not know Dr. Israr Ahmad.
2. We are not aware of Dr. Zakir Naik having any belief inconsistent with
the beliefs of Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaa.
