    Re: Speakers Corner Debates


    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?

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

    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.

    Re: Speakers Corner Debates


    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

    Meaning of Shirk according to The Qur'an
    " Worshipping anyone or anything besides Allah " or " distributing anything exclusive to Allah, to anyone or anything else "

    Meaning of Tawheed according to The Qur'an
    Worshipping none but Allah. Affirming whatever is exclusive to Him, Him alone.

    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.
