ITTEHAD – E – UMMAT CONFERENCE
IACR is a strong advocate of 'Ittehad-e-Ummat'. IACR itself works in a NON-CONTROVERSIAL way and it enjoys good rapport with all important Jamaats.
IACR conducted 'Ittehad-e-Ummat Conference' during the holy month of Ramazaan to reiterate the importance of Unity and Da'wah. The theme of the Conference was MILKAR NIBHAYENGE FAREEZA-E-DA'WAT. One scholar from each Jamaat such as Jamaat-e-Islami, Jamiat-e-Ahl-e-Hadith, Taameer-e-Millat, Ahl-e-Sunnatul Jamaat and Tableeghi Jamaat were invited to speak on the importance of Da'wah and the need to ignore minor differences of Masle Masail. Br. Asifuddin delivered the Presidential speech.
This was one of the three historic programs of IACR. Never before had scholars of all Jamaats come on a common platform for the cause of Da'wah.
Br. Asifuddin Muhammed, President of IACR has delivered hundreds of speeches on several important topics like:
"Concept of God in Major Religions, Human Rights in Islam, Does Islam Promote Slavery?, Concept of Jihad in Islam, Jesus Christ pbuh in the Bible and Qur'an, Does the Bible Prophesy Muhammed pbuh?,
The Message of Ramazaan, Qur'an's Message to Mankind, Scientific Proof for God's Existence, Quran Aur Bible Ki Roshni Mein Eisaas : Khuda? Ya Khuda Ke Betay? Ya Paigambar? Duniya Mein Islam Kaise Galib Hoga? And many more.
Br. Asifuddin speaks eloquently in English, Telugu, Urdu & Hindi.
SPEECHES ON TELUGU RELIGIOUS CHANNEL
Telugu Religious channel Samskriti TV of TV9 group has been telecasting Br Asifuddin's Da'wah speeches Since 2008 on Fridays at 9pm. The same channel has agreed to telecast LIVE Question & Answer session where anybody in AP can ask a question on Islam and Comparative Religion LIVE and get a reply in Telugu from Br. Asifuddin.
These speeches and Q&A sessions reach at least 15-20 lakhs Telugu speaking people all over AP and overseas. This figure can go up to 1 crore, Insha Allah.
DEBATES WITH CHRISTIAN MISSIONARIES
Apart from delivering hundreds of speeches, Br. Asifuddin has debated in June 2005 with Rev. A.R. Ophir, a Christian missionary who owns more than 200 churches. The topic of the debate was "WAS JESUSpbuh GOD? OR A PROPHET?" The debate was a resounding success, Alhamdulillah. Evidence from Bible was sufficient to prove that Jesus was only a prophet of God just as the Qur'an endorses.
As mentioned earlier, this debate was a great advancement in Da'wah Research, Alhamdulillah. It is also considered to be the best ever debate in Hyderabad because 'Truth Prevailed. Yet Nobody Was Hurt'.
Br. Asifuddin debated with another Christian Missionary Br Jerry Thomas in October 2008 on the topic "SIN AND SALVATION IN ISLAM AND CHRISTIANITY".
This debate was another great advancement in Da'wah Research, Alhamdulillah. This debate proved in the light of the Quran that Allah is a forgiving God hence He has made several arrangements to grant salvation to mankind. It also proved that the mistaken concepts like 'original sin, inheritance of sin, vicarious atonement etc' are against the Bible. This debate brought out nearly three dozen loopholes in the mistaken concepts, most of which could not even be attempted by the Christian brother, Alhamdulillah.
DEFENDING ISLAM IN THE MEDIA
Br. Asifuddin Muhammed appears frequently in print and electronic media to defend Islamic standpoint on issues considered to be controversial. He appears on Telugu news channels like TV9, TV5, Zee 24, Gemini News, Studio-N, ETV 2, hmtv etc and shares his authentic and forthright views in Telugu. Apart from this, he appears on National Urdu and English channels like ETV Urdu and News 9.
Some of the examples of Br Asifuddin's TV appearances are like this:
Vande Mataram - On the issue of making Vande Mataram compulsory, he debated LIVE on tv9 against General secretary of a national level 'anti Muslim' political party and proved logically that the Islamic standpoint is correct.
Taslima Nasreen - On the issue of Taslima Nasreen, he exposed Taslima's writings and proved that they are illogical and pornographic and hence harmful for society.
Pope Benedict XVI - To the adverse remarks on Islam made by Pope Benedict XVI, Br. Asifuddin replied in the light of the Holy Qur'an, logic and history that his comments on Islam are not only false but they actually fit Christianity.
