 I found this debate on youtube, the reason i wanted to share this with you was because of the rebuttals given by the Muslim panel. I just wasn't convinced by there replies, it wasnt good enough. I wasnt at all surprised at the verdict at the end. Watch it all and tell me what you think.

 The debate was between Majid Nawaz (Quilliam Foundation) and Zeba Khan vs Ayaan Hirsi Ali and Douglas Murray held in New York.

Here's the first part it has 7 in total.


Live Like Ali. Die Like Hussain. Allahumma salli ‘ala Sayyidina Muhammadin wa ‘ala Ahli Muhammadan wa Sahbihi wa sallim.

QUILLIAM!?  Is that the best they could find?! And I've never heard of Zeba Khan. If only they could get a real scholar of Islam, not this Majid Nawaz dude! Oh my days, no wonder it's not convincing!
PLEASE pray for me - just say Ameen!

Bro I personally have about 6 Islamic teachers here in the UK and - while not all of them are fully-fledged "scholars" - they have at least spent years and years at the feet of scholars and at least have that authority to speak on Islam.
You do not get that authority from websites and going to a few HT gatherings!

Exactly my point they are not fully fledged scholars, yet titles assigned to them are as if they have reinvented the wheel. A scholar is someone whose work leaves it effect till eternity - i.e abu hanifa r.a

And as rasool allah s.a.w said anyone who refers himself as a scholar he isnt one.

If someone like Ayaan Hirsi Ali is running rings round you in a debate you know your not worthy of defending Islam in a debate. This woman is no expert in Islam or an academic of any sort, infact shes not even a good debater, or an articulate speaker.

Shaykh Hamza Yusuf sums it up pretty well, go to 4.30 onwards, you'll understand what I mean.

I did not even make it through all of part 1.  Zeba Khan was very weak and not very articulate, a very poor choice.  I agree about Sheikh Hamza Yusuf.
