    1. He’s in a Saudi I think. Saudi gave him citizenship there. He can’t go back to India bcz they’re making up lies that he is an extremist. Liars!!!

  1. Assalamu’alaikum.
    Love all of them. Especially, who really concerned n spread knowledge about Islam in Sunnah. Currently, in my mind is DR. Zakir Naik. Wallahualam…

  2. Most converted non-muslims to Muslims by the inspiration of Dr. Zakir naik… Why don’t uh put up him in list?

  3. Assalamualaikum. Ramadan mubarak. This is just the website’s opinion and/or finding. Perhaps it’s just a suggestion for those who are new to Islam. Regardless, if you disagree then there is definitely no need to debate, protest and especially get angry. Remember this ramadan. This is not a matter of most popular or winning contest. It’s a matter of the heart and which scholar speaks the most to us individually. After all we are in the holliest month. May Allah SWT grant all of us peace and guidance in our hearts. Amin. Walaikumsalam.

    1. Walekumassalam. May this Ramadan bring blessings in our lives. I completely agree with your opinion and thanks for your kind words.
      There’s no need for debating on any topic. Just spread Love and “Be United”. May Allah show us all the right path. 🙂

  4. Where is Dr. Zakir Naik. He is the poplar muslim scholar who provided public speeches and spreading Islam all over the world. Would like to see him here as the best.

  5. The researchers did not do enough justice to the ratings. Dr Zakir Naik , Khalid Yasin. Adulraheem Green, Yusuf Estes are among the front runners in Islamic propagation. They were well known and acknowledged for the preaching which have no rival.
    Those mentioned above are all scholars on their own right, but let us give honour to whom honour is due.

  6. I don’t listen to the scholars who mock other scholars. It’s not a marathon in Olympics. They are definitely not scholars, something other than that. I hate bilal philips and yasir qadhi. Rest are great. Btw hamza yusuf should have been in the list, he is a great person too.

  7. I have checked your blog and i’ve found some duplicate content, that’s why you don’t rank high
