Al Qur’an Shifa, not Allah’s creation: Azhari in USA

Muna Convention Chairman Arman Chowdhury CPA and Anisur Rahman jointly moderated the discussion on Saturday – Dr. Omar Sulaiman, Dr. Altaf Hossain, Harun and Rashid and Saikh Abdul Nasir Jagda.


Bengali-speaking young people who respect Dr. Mizanur Rahman Azhari also said that without the Qur’an, we would not have known the purpose of our coming to earth. I wandered like a vagabond. I used to eat, work, cultivate the world, develop, but what is the purpose of our coming to earth? Never would have known that. The Qur’an has made it clear to us.
Azhari, a young speaker and Islamic scholar, said that all scriptures except the Qur’an were revealed to the Prophets at once. But it took 23 years for the Quran to be revealed. The Qur’an gives us the quest for an enlightened life, leading us to progress. Struggling in the dark illuminates humanity. Analyzing the Qur’an, it can be seen that this Qur’an changed the entire lifecycle of an illiterate nation and people of a continent.
He said about the death of Delwar Hossain Sayedi, we lost our beloved Allama a few days ago. We keep hope in our chest thinking that we have temporarily lost him in this world. But on the Day of Resurrection, we will hear the Qur’an again in the voice of the nightingale of this Qur’an in Paradise. I also lost my parents and friends. This separation is temporary. We will find them in paradise one day.
Dr. Mizanur Rahman Azhari discussed the next day at 12 noon  extensively about the sustenance of human life mentioned in the Qur’an. He explained the meaning of various ayats of Surah Zariat, Surah Baqarah, Surah Hud, Surah Bani Israel and Surah Rahman and discussed at length about rizq.


He said, Surely Allah is the Sustainer and the Mighty and the Mighty. Allah clearly says in the Qur’an that He is the Sustainer. Allah gives us sustenance. But he did not ask to waste the livelihood. Allah has given you a lot of sustenance? So be careful. Because it’s a test.

Azhari started his career in 2010 with Islamic Ghazals and Kirats. Later he joined an Islamic program on a Bengali TV. At the beginning of 2015, he started his career with waz-mahfil. He became widely accepted by people of all classes and professions in a few years. He is one of the few Islamic thinkers who exist today.

In January 2020, he was claimed by a member of parliament as having made anti-national comments in the Bangladesh National Parliament. At the same time, Sheikh Mohammad Abdullah, the former minister of state for religion of Bangladesh, called him a “product of Bangladesh Jamaat-e-Islami” and said that action would be taken against him for commenting that “Let Saeedi be born in every house”.
In October 2021, he was scheduled to attend an Islamic conference in London at the invitation of ‘I on TV’, but he was barred from entering the UK by the ‘Home Office’ in the UK, accusing him of religiously offending other religions and spreading hate speech.
