As a peace-loving religion, Islam calls for a resourceful methodology in disseminating the lofty ideas and ideals enshrined in its holy scripture. Moreover, the Prophet of Islam himself demonstrated to his followers on the rightful manner in which the religion should be promulgated, not only to the Muslims but also to non-Muslims. Taking precedent from the Prophet and his followers, this paper examines the styles and methodologies used by two renowned contemporary Muslim preachers; Yusuf Islam till present 1 and Zakir Naik till present.
In the Muslim world, both of them are merited for their intellectual competency in engaging their audience in any form of religious discourse, particularly pertaining to Islam and Christianity.

Email: maarji iium. Cat Stevens. Retrieved on 26th June In modern times, with the advent of Orientalism, there came a huge interest in Western scholars to know eastern culture and religion.
Among all religions, Islam seems to be the most popular religion in Oriental studies. In the past, many Muslim scholars had undertaken serious interest in the area of comparative religion. In modern times, the Muslim world saw towering scholars dominating the field, such as Rahmatullah Kairanawi , Ahmed Hoosen Deedat or better known as Ahmad Deedat — , Isma'il Raji al-Faruqi — , Seyyed Hossein Nasr till present , to name a few.
These great scholars produced voluminous writings using different methodologies to showcase their scholastic works. Among the more popular methods used during the classical era of Islam were polemical refutation, comparative and analytical analysis and dialogue.
Such methods are still accredited to these days. In continuing the legacy of the past in the area of comparative religion, the contemporary digital era also saw the appearance of many charismatic Muslim scholars and preachers. Many of their public lectures and debates are made available to millions around the globe via the internet, YouTube and social media.
Equipped with the proper knowledge about Islam and other religions, 1 See Edward W. Due to space limitation, in this paper, the researchers would only want to perform a contrastive analysis between Yusuf Islam and Zakir Naik. Both these preachers have their own personal experience in turning out to be an Islamic preacher. Yusuf coming from the world of music, while Naik from the medical profession.
Eventually, both have dedicated their lives to the service of God by inviting others to the path of virtue and bliss. He enjoys popularity not only among the Muslims but also non-Muslims. He was born on 21st July in Marylebone in London. He was raised in a Christian business family and given the name Steven Demetre Georgiou at birth.
Although he was not performing well academically, his performance in arts was exceptional. For this reason, he decided to pursue his study in the science of arts at Hammersmith School of Arts. His involvement in the music industry catapulted him into fame. The success he made in the music world as a celebrated artist gave him the title Cat Stevens. Some state that his inclination and success in the show business came as a result of his many years of involvement in the family music business.
Not only that, the musical environment in which he grew up also created the interest in him to be close to music. His house was located nearby a coliseum and an entertainment outlet. His life before coming into Islam was one full of glamour, wealth and excitement, and he was an outstanding, wealthy, and a charming young man. At the age of 18, he became a megastar. The years between and , marked the pinnacle of success for him.
While enjoying the peak of success in his music career, life started to take a different course for Yusuf. In , he was diagnosed for tuberculosis and had to go through treatment. After recovering from this life-threatening ailment, his music and lyrics of his songs also went through a dramatic change.
They started to represent his personal emotion. From that point in his life, Yusuf used to question; what is the purpose of life, death, happiness, etc. In his search for answers to his life, he started to wander and move on from one ism to another. As such, it deserves mentioning here. It was a shocking news to his family, people around him and to his devoted fans.
Stevens defended his reason to embark on a new spiritual journey. He also told that the decision was made after giving a serious thought about it and one that was not made haphazardly. He self-confessed of what he had undergone in life and that has intensified his long-held quest for spiritual truth.
And if you listen to my music and lyrics, like "Peace Train" and "On The Road to Find Out", it clearly shows my yearning for direction and the spiritual path I was travelling". Later, he reflected his spiritual yearning in songs he wrote and sang. After understanding the cardinal teachings of Islam, on 23rd December , he officially declared himself as a Muslim by choosing Yusuf Islam as his new name. After getting advice from scholarly people, he made a comeback to music with a noble intention.
His return to music happened exactly after thirty years. His return to music this time around was with a certain determination that he is going to utilize music as a vehicle to carry the message of Islam and peace to the global community. He was able to articulate many of philosophical ideas in it like many born Muslims, perhaps sometimes better than them. They were equally elated to see how creatively he used music to promote Islam to Muslims and non-Muslims alike. Besides, the huge admiration he received from his fans, there were some posted on Western social media that harshly criticized and passed derogatory remarks on his conversion into Islam.
Such remarks at times were aimed to belittle his status as an iconic figure in the world of music. Retrieved on 26th June, , p. In recent times, in his interviews, he has defended his position on how he views things differently as a Muslim compared to his critics.
He treats every individual with due respect regardless of the person being a Muslim or non-Muslim, an ordinary fan or a member of the media. Such qualities have been of great help for Yusuf to communicate his more complex ideas on religion and religiosity.
He speaks genuinely well without having any prejudice against the ones he is communicating with. By understanding the background of the people with whom he is in a conversation makes him and the discussant or the interviewer feels comfortable. In many of his interviews, Yusuf looks relaxed and enjoys every moment of the show. The training he got long before coming into Islam, on how to present himself on stage came handy for him when later he took the role of an ambassador or spokesperson for Islam.
Another positive trait about Yusuf is his fluency as a native speaker of English. As such, he speaks with all clarity and decency without any ambiguity. Music as a Medium of Communication 2 One hears too often in the media that great artists, musicians and music composers have spoken on the same ideas that music is a universal language.
There is an old wisdom that says good music creates harmony in the human soul. To Yusuf, the realization that music can be a good medium to communicate came after his return from his isolation from the music world.
Moreover, he also felt that music can be a beautiful way of communication and creates a neutral ground for people to interact with one another. Our recordings 1 Ibid. Moreover, Yusuf is of the opinion that Muslim scholars and the Ummah should give priority to the more pressing problems in the society than to debate on a minor issue like music.
