Very interesting place, heard a lot about it. Also discussing it on another forum. Enjoyed reading up on its history a while back too. I wonder though, how do people fact check the claims/arguments the debaters make there? Pull out their phones and google the stuff? ;D;)

Hats off to the people participating in these type of debates, I would be too intimidated/shy to do so :embarrass

edit: I'm half way into watching the video and the Christian guy is indeed googling stuff, guess that answers that

He was googling for a long time, and couldn't find any proof to back his claims, shortly after, he (Kevin) left the debate :)

I don't understand people like him. He just kept shouting random issues and loaded questions, and as soon as he started getting rebuttals he wouldn't even wait for them to finish explaining and tried moving on to another issue to try and "stump" them with. It's obvious he wasn't interested in any meaningful discussion. I don't know if his goal was simply to heckle or what, but he didn't even do a good job with that as he got rebutted on every issue. :facepalm:

True brother Bosanac, assalaam alaikum btw,

I'll be there again tomorrow in sha Allah.

Hopefully in a few days I will have another video to share here.

I find that a minority of the people at speakers corner are not so ignorant of Islam as we are led to believe - rather, they are just there to antagonize the Muslims, although this is not as common as on forums, it does happen.

Having said this, their attempts to antagonize Muslims usually fails miserably because Muslims have a thicker skin and can more than handle the antagonists. In fact, the Muslims usually leave the antagonists humbled.

I got involved in a few discussions myself but requested not to be filmed lol, too shy.

This guy is an atheist, but listen carefully to what he is saying - he doesn't realise that he is sponsoring Muslim ideas, because he doesn't know it... yet.



I'm in touch with him, and will be giving him some dawah next time I see him in sha Allah, based on his ideas about life, and living :)

funny story how I met him.

We were praying Asr salaah in the park, when some Christians from troll Jay Smiths camp started to hurl abuse at us - not that we noticed - we were too busy with salaah.

Once salaah was done, Eric (the guy in this video) came up to us and apologised for the actions of "those crazy white people" and said he was not from their group and that he liked to see Muslims quietly and peacefully observe their rituals.

This, softened me greatly towards him and so I went over to him and introduced myself. We got talking, at which point a Christian friend of mine who lives locally - Eddie - turned up and surprised me. I asked him "what you doing here?" he said "TITANS TV" and I nodded knowingly lol - TITANS TV is the Christian arm of speakers corner youtube vids. We hugged and all three of us had a very polite and informal conversation, which eventually led to discussing theology and no theology as in the case of Eric. Then Eric pointed out how everyone is arguing religion, and how he has come here to speak about the ills in society which get over looked due to the media polarisation of absolutely everything. So I suggested he take the stand. He replied he was nervous as this was his first time to speak, but up he went, and there I was, with my first "exclusive" lol.

Eddie is also in that video, he's the Black guy standing on the left with the baseball cap, good guy.

Wa alaykum assalam,

:jz: for sharing this.

The Speaker's Corner in Hyde Park is the most famous one around, it would be interesting to pop down there and listen to some of the debates.

How often do the debates get heated, or is everyone relatively calm most of the time?

There's a buzz about the place. Some people talk quietly, like Subboor Ahmed with Julian in the Discussing Darwin video. Sometimes a Muslim get's heckled as in the two tigers in a cage video, but the Muslim comes out on top Alhamdulillah.

There is a decent presence of Muslim speakers around, and a good mix of everything else.

This is not a Speakers Corner video, but for budding young da'ee's, this documentary is worth watching:



An Excellent documentary made by brother Muhammad (Bushwack) from Wake Up Project forum in 2012. Resurfacing five years later as a timeless classic with appeal to all inviter's (Da'ee's) to the way of Islam.

EMPIRICAL DOGMA???

How can such a thing be true? Science isn't dogmatic? Is it?

Well, a trained and educated scientist invests in a dogmatic belief regarding his atheism. Takes faith not to believe, apparently - here you go bros and sisters - This one is for YOU!!!

The NIV spwaned from the KJV revisions by over 50 cooperating denominations within Christianity and a plethora of lnguists, researchers and scholars as well as Doctors of Divinity were involved in attempting to clarify the distortions within the New Testament Bible. In this video, Theo seems to be unaware of such a development and holds fast to the KJV, at the risk of looking like he doesn't know what it contains.

Follow Hussein on his channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/streetor...

We visit speaker's corner regularly to film interesting debates and discussions. In this video, we used three cameras, one Rode direcitional mic and a Zoom H2n, and for the post production (which takes longer) we used HitFilm4Express. It takes time, money and effort to do this work, so please so show us it's worth it by subscribing for more in sh'Allah..

Speaker's Corner: Indiana Rob & the temple of Disbelief - featuring brother Hamza Myatt


An Atheist (Rob) invests hope in ideas without proof, this dogmatic position is reflective of the accusation the atheists accuse beleiver with. Irony abounds, watch Rob struggle with the question "what do you believe" because he knows that belief doesn't require evidence! Big thank you to brother Hamza Myatt for taking the time to debate ROb and to EF Dawah (Eman Foundation Dawah) for letting us film this two weeks ago!If you like what we do, please do consider subscribing to Dawah Digital in sh'Allah

Following the Terror attacks in London on Saturday 3rd of June 2017 - the world wonders why Muslims do not condemn the terror attacks in the media - the reason is simple - Muslims are not represented fairly in ANY media - and so it is up to us, as Muslims to attempt to reach as many people and let them hear our Islamic understanding of these events, and those behind them.This is our condemnation of Terrorism, please share this video around to your friends and family and anyone who may benefit, Ameen!God bless us all, and keep us safe from harm, Ameen,A Very Special Thank You to the Muslim brothers, Paul and Mansur who gave us the opportunity to film them for our viewers - please do share this video with all who may benefit and further, keep both our brothers in du'aa.

Juan Carlos, a Christian brother debates Brother Hashem. The topic of discussion centers around whether Jesus (pbuh) knew the hour - Juan Carlos struggles with the idea that Jesus is both divine and not divine - clearly showing the confusion of a contradicting New Testament work.

We would like to thank brother Hashem and brother Juan Carlos for taking part in this discussion, may Allah subhana wa ta'aala bless brother Hashem and guide brother Juan Carlos to truth, ameen.

We work hard to bring you video content with a difference - we just invested in a third DSLR camera (thank you brother Nadeem) and a new tripod (thank you sister Mehnaz) and look forward to bringing you even better, more dynamic video content in the near future in sh'Allah.

If you enjoyed this video, please do kindly consider subscribing for more - help us to spread the Dawah far and wide and reach many more people in sh'Allah.

Here's one I just found.
An excellent example of step by step logical and rational deduction, vs an adamant and irrational purposeful denial despite the willingness to entertain the possibility of any other answer:



The "science says" part is funny though when I try to imagine the invisible non-god and it's voice and language....... it means study, hypotheses and conclusions of different individuals for God's sake and it's meant to be rational, not a strawman illusion of an authoritative being instead if God.

Hamza's final week at the park, and his most anticipated discussion. Joshua answers questions about the "Hypostatic Union" and the historicity of the Trinity; namely how it doesn't seem to have any firm basis for belief within the Abrahamic Faith Tradition. Truly an insightful dialogue between two wonderful minds.A special thank you to our guests, Hamza and Joshua.If you like this content, then please do subscribe for more in sh'Allah.

Stay Tuned for our exclusive - Paul Williams speaking about the Forgeries in the Bible filmed at Regents Park Mosque.Stay tuned further for the much anticipated Street Or Deen Series with Jason Thomas.

This one's interesting:

That Kid, for a supposed Muslim, wants to debate other Muslims at the park about "agenda21" lol. I told him "Allah is the best of planners" and that he was a conspiracy theorist - coming from me, that's a bit of a compliment - but he took it totally the wrong way, and made a video lol :D

That's some dodgy way to spend his 15 mins of fame - speaking about someone else :D and even bad publicity is still - publicity. My subs soared by 100 in a day. Oh and btw, I told him all the above - 3 weeks ago, :D children should stay at home if they can't handle the heat. I took a lot of ajar from him thru his defamation attempt :D poor kid. He even started the video wiping the tears from his mascara laden eyes. It's a penny a fool these days. :D he's anobody anyway so really bro, aint no thing but good times here. Plenty of projects releasing soon - including the STREET OR DEEN series in sh'Allah and more to come from the Paul Williams Show as well in sh'Allah. (And some other projects as well) stay tuned !!!

I just googled it and it's a real plan. There's good in a critical look especially after memorandum 200.
Why didn't you get his take on it no matter how weird seeming since he might have had some info you don't.
I still remember the lone gunman scene where the dad asks his son if he expected him to out the twin towers attack up on a newsletter next to stories about two headed babies and elvis is an alien.
I know it's not practical to put outrageous and incredible stuff on your channel but you might've benefited by reviewing it.
Now he's gone after you for sorcery. :)
