The Big Debate: Nuh (AS) Vs Richard Dawkins - Coming Up Soon!

Of course there is no real debate happening between the two but the people who Nuh (AS) had to deal with were as stubborn in their disbelief as Richard Dawkins (the leading atheist in the world) is or even more. Therefore the message of Nuh (AS) and the way he dealt with them is relevant for us than ever before. He had to deal with such people for nearly 950 years! The patience, persistence, perseverance and the concern for the people he showed in those 950 years is unimaginable.

<<He said, ‘My Lord, I have called my people night and day, but the more I call them, the further they run away: every time I call them, so that You may forgive them, they thrust their fingers into their ears, cover their heads with their garments, persist in their rejection, and grow more insolent and arrogant. I have tried calling them openly. I have tried preaching to them in public and speaking to them in private.’>> [Surah Nuh 71:5-9]

As we can see Dawkins is not as bad as the people that Nuh (AS) had to deal with because he will at least listen. So perhaps if we show a fraction of the courtesy of Nuh (AS) to Dawkins he may actually change his mind and consider accepting Islam! Nuh (AS) adopted different ways to call his people. What ways can we adopt in this day and age based on the story of Nuh (AS)?

This is your opportunity to learn and understand how to approach and deal with people like Dawkins through the story of Nuh (AS) as mentioned in the Qur'an. This is taught by one of the foremost scholars and thinkers of the Western world today - Shaykh Dr Mohammad Akram Nadwi of Oxford University where Dawkins is also a fellow.
