The video stated: International Islamic Preacher Dr.  Zakir Naik inspired four more people To embrace Islam. Four persons, including an Indian Hindu and a woman, converted to Islam after Zakir Naik’s lecture series in Malaysia. During a question and answer session after Zakir’s two lectures, the four people recited the Shahadah (declaration of faith at  the stroke of midnight.
