Dr Zakir Naik debate about human existence

I first knew about Dr Zakir Naik when I was watching a TV programme in Karachi, called "Peace TV". That was in 2007. He is known as "Deedat plus", a label given to him by the late Ahmad Deedat (a South African writer and Islamic Scholar/Preacher) himself. Dr Zakir said in 2006, that he was inspired by Ahmed Deedat having met him in person in 1987. He was born in Mumbai, Maharashtra, India. He attended Kishinchand Chellaram College and studied medicine at Topiwala National Medical College & BYL Nair Charitable Hospital and later the University of Mumbai, where he obtained a Bachelor of Medicine and Surgery (MBBS). In 1991 he started working in the field of Da’wah, and founded the Islamic Research Foundation (IRF). He also founded the Islamic International School in Mumbai and United Islamic Aid, which provides scholarship to poor and destitute Muslim youth. The Islamic Research Foundation website describes Naik as "the ideologue and driving force behind Peace TV Network".

Yesterday , 24th May 2016, I watched 1 of his speech in YouTube video published on 16 June 2014 by MuslimSpeakers. A man with outstanding own perception and studies stood and asked Dr Zakir Naik about why Allah created Human in this world since He knew, He has knowledge that we, human kind will some obey and some disobey Him. Allah has created hell and heaven as a reward to those who sin and those who throughout their life only performing deeds and obliged to straight path. The man further said if Allah has asked his permission before given him a life, he would have choose to be born as an angel as to his opinion, an angel will follow only a straight path and assured a place in heaven. Dr Naik reaffirmed that human is a special creation by Allah who were given a brain to differentiate the wrong or right path. Angel and Demons being around human so that those who get tested, including the prophets who had uncounted tests in their teaching worth to be awarded with reward at the end of their eternal existence. A simple explanation or rather a straightforward answer: Only Allah has a power to give hidayah to those who passed His test. Just like a teacher who shall gave high marks to those students who answered excellently in any exam. You may watched the said video that I referred to as shared below.

Dr Zakir has quoted the followings 4 verses in the Quran where Allah has clearly said:-

Al A'raf 7:172 And (remember) when your Lord brought forth from the Children of Adam, from their loins, their seed (or from Adam's loin his offspring) and made them testify as to themselves (saying): "Am I not your Lord?" They said: "Yes! We testify," lest you should say on the Day of Resurrection: "Verily, we have been unaware of this."
Dan (ingatlah wahai Muhammad) ketika Tuhanmu mengeluarkan zuriat anak-anak Adam (turun-temurun) dari (tulang) belakang mereka, dan Ia jadikan mereka saksi terhadap diri mereka sendiri, (sambil Ia bertanya dengan firmanNya): "Bukankah Aku tuhan kamu?" Mereka semua menjawab: "Benar (Engkaulah Tuhan kami), kami menjadi saksi". Yang demikian supaya kamu tidak berkata pada hari kiamat kelak: "Sesungguhnya kami adalah lalai (tidak diberi peringatan) tentang (hakikat tauhid) ini".
Remarks: The memory of the testiment has been wiped up when a human is born through the mother's womb and we are been on test ever since that day until the day we return to The Almighty.

Al-Ahzab 33:72 We did indeed offer the Trust to the Heavens and the Earth and the Mountains; but they refused to undertake it, being afraid thereof: but man undertook it;- He was indeed unjust and foolish;-
Sesungguhnya Kami telah kemukakan tanggungjawab amanah (Kami) kepada langit dan bumi serta gunung-ganang (untuk memikulnya), maka mereka enggan memikulnya dan bimbang tidak dapat menyempurnakannya (kerana tidak ada pada mereka persediaan untuk memikulnya); dan (pada ketika itu) manusia (dengan persediaan yang ada padanya) sanggup memikulnya. (Ingatlah) sesungguhnya tabiat kebanyakan manusia adalah suka melakukan kezaliman dan suka pula membuat perkara-perkara yang tidak patut dikerjakan.
Remarks: Man are indeed a complete fool. They are more than happy to live with such a big burden for the name of glory and temporary worldly life.

Al-Hasr 59:21 Had We sent down this Qur'an on a mountain, verily, thou wouldst have seen it humble itself and cleave asunder for fear of Allah. Such are the similitudes which We propound to men, that they may reflect.
Sekiranya Kami turunkan Al-Quran ini ke atas sebuah gunung, nescaya engkau melihat gunung itu khusyuk serta pecah belah kerana takut kepada Allah. Dan (ingatlah), misal-misal perbandingan ini Kami kemukakan kepada umat manusia, supaya mereka memikirkannya.
Remarks: Man are so confident to meet Allah with thousands of excuses and reasons but not knowing Allah has warned and repeatedly reminded them not to follow a wrong path, a Shaitan ways.

Ha'Mim 41: 53 Soon will We show them our Signs in the (furthest) regions (of the earth), and in their own souls, until it becomes manifest to them that this is the Truth. Is it not enough that thy Lord doth witness all things?
Kami akan perlihatkan kepada mereka tanda-tanda kekuasaan Kami di merata-rata tempat (dalam alam yang terbentang luas ini) dan pada diri mereka sendiri, sehingga ternyata jelas kepada mereka bahawa Al-Quran adalah benar. Belumkah ternyata kepada mereka kebenaran itu dan belumkah cukup (bagi mereka) bahawa Tuhanmu mengetahui dan menyaksikan tiap-tiap sesuatu?
Remarks: Only the 5 Book of Allah, i.e. the book of Truth can help a man!

I like the ending part of the video when Dr Zakir Naik posed a brilliant question back "Why would Bill Gates gave you a $100?" in answering to the man last statement "If Bill Gates gave me a $100, would I be amazed with that?". Everyone, used your head to think deeper if Bill Gates pick us as a special person for his $100... would it even more if Allah has chosen us to give the same? Brilliant, brilliant... I'm more than happy to grab the wisdom of the 22 minutes video. I hope you would somehow found the answer that you are looking at. 

Peace, Love and Compassion to all mankind. May we be under His protection and acceptance.
