- Jizya is enforced so that Jews and Christians may know they are inferior to Islam. If a Jew or Christian is found walking down the street, a Muslim should push them to the side. Christians are not allowed to display their cross or construct new churches in an Islamic state. Men who have fathered a child with Jewish or Christian women should be allowed to prevent the child from being raised as a non-Muslim. Muslims should not take Jews and Christians as friends, either as individuals or as nations.
- During a speech at Speakers Corner, Green asked for a Jewish man to be taken away so his ‘stench’ did not disturb the crowd.
http://www.iera.org/media/press-pack/anti-semitism“As for a comment made by AR Green more than two decades ago, he has clarified in the past on his blog that the comment was aimed at a habitual heckler in Hyde Park Speakers Corner, in a highly charged forum of debate, who happened to be Jewish. It was not aimed at any community or meant to be anti-Semitic in any way. However, recognising that it could be misconstrued, he has apologised openly for such errors of judgement made more than twenty years ago.”
- Made anti-semitic remarks about Mustafa Kemal Atatürk, also calling him a nasty ‘kafir.’
- The ‘immediate problem’ for Muslims in Britain is being surrounded by ‘kuffar.’ One of the only justifications for Muslims to remain in the UK is to call the kuffar to Islam, the strongest evidence says that Muslims must leave the lands of non-Muslims. It is a major sin to side with non-Muslims against Muslims, including against the Taliban. Green has said that he does not feel very sad when a non-Muslim dies.
- Warned that it is ‘very dangerous’ to dress like Western youth as Muslims will start to act like them. Compared non-Muslim schools to a sewer, living among such ‘evil’ people will lead to Muslims acquiring their characteristics.
- There is a ‘prescribed punishment’ for those found participating in acts of homosexuality – death by stoning. ‘Gay’ is a word used by homosexuals to spread their propaganda and to make their ‘evil and vile’ acts acceptable in society. It is better to use a derogatory term for these people, like ‘sodomites.’ Muslims should not accept that it is a crime to ‘revile someone because of their homosexuality.’
- A husband is allowed to use a ‘type of physical force’, or ‘a light beating’ in order to bring his wife to goodness, as long as it does not break the skin or a bone or leave a mark. A woman must be obedient to her husband and should not be encouraged to do the same jobs as a man.
- Islam is not a religion that is separable from the state and is not compatible with democracy. Muslims cannot agree with democracy, this would constitute disbelief.
- Adulterers should be stoned to death.
JEWS & CHRISTIANS
“Why don’t you take the Yahoudi [Jew] over there, far away, so his stench doesn’t disturb us OK?
“The people who you mix with, the people who you take as your companions, the environment that surrounds you will influence you and will affect you without a doubt. This is why the Prophet (SAW) said that every child is born upon the fitrah. The natural disposition and the natural inclination to be good and to worship Allah. But the shaitan amongst mankind and the jinn, or their parents made them a Jew or a Christian or a fire-worshipper. So the natural condition of the human being is to be inclined to worship Allah (SWT) alone.”
“And the Prophet (SAW) warned us, be careful who you take as your friend, because you will take your religion, you will take your way of life from your friend. And this is one of the reasons why Allah (SWT) he has warned us in his book, do not take the believers as your awliya, do not take the Jews and the Christians or the Mushrikeen as your awliya. Do not prefer them to the believers, do not prefer their company to the company of the believers. Do not take them as your, and what is the word awliya? What does it mean? If has a meaning of friendship, close friendship. It has the meaning of your advisor, your protector. And Allah has forbidden us from having that relationship with the unbelievers, whether it is us individually, as individuals, or as nations.”
“If we want to go into this it’s easy for me to prove if anyone has knowledge that what I said is right, OK? For example, open Bukhari you will find the hadith that if you find the Jew or a Christian walking down the street, push them to the side. It is well-known from what Umar ibn al-Khattab and the khulafa ar rashidin used to implement, that the Jew and Christian was not allowed to ride on a horse when the Muslim is riding on a horse. They would have to walk. Allah he said in the Quran about the jizya that you, that fight the people of the book, Allah (SWT) said, it’s in the Quran, fight the people of the book and those who do not believe that what Allah has made lawful as lawful and what Allah has made unlawful as lawful, until they pay the jizya and feel themselves subdued. The purpose of the jizya is to make the Jew and the Christian know that they are inferior and subjugated to Islam, OK? In the Muslim state, although the Jew and Christian is free to practice their religion, this is allowed, but they can not display their cross and even in the time of Umar they were not allowed to re-construct or construct new churches. All of this is to create an atmosphere where the, it is encouraging the people to come to iman and Islam, not to remain upon kufr and misguidance. Yes there is, we do not force people, we do not say ‘You must become Muslim or we kill you.’ That’s not correct. But it is from Islam to create an environment where people are pressurised and encouraged to be upon the path of haq and we do not encourage people to be on the way of….Although the sharia allows the Jew and the Christian to practice their religion in an Islamic country it does not encourage it.”
“However, I have to say that there are some conditions that the scholars they mentioned concerning the Muslim man marrying the Jewish and Christian woman who is chaste. And some of those conditions are, they mentioned that they did not like, they did not make it haram, but they did not like that this should place in a non-Muslim country. And the reason for that is that if this woman wanted to go with the children and raise them up as a Jew or a Christian there would be no way for him to prevent her, in a Christian country or another country, from doing that. Whereas in a Muslim land usually there will be a means to prevent that sort of thing happening.”
“Ataturk was an extremely, thoroughly unpleasant, nasty kafir. He was a Jew, he was a Jew. And not only was he a Jew, he belonged to a sect of the Jews that even the Jews think are far astray.”
“What is the benefit for that brothers and sisters for us living here in the West? We are surrounded with evil. We are surround by people who are indulging in the worst type of evil. I don’t mean they’re drinking alcohol, they’re taking drugs, they’re fornicating. The worst type of evil is shirk. The worst type of evil is kufr. The worst type of evil is making partners with Allah, and denying Allah and turning away from their lord and their religion. This is the worst type of evil. So we are surrounded by that. Are we just those people who come to the masjid, we do our work, we mind our own business? We are surrounded by evil but we do nothing to change it? We do nothing to call the people to Islam? We do nothing to call the people away from shirk and kufr? No, many of us partake in it, Happy Christmas, Happy New Year, happy shirk, happy kufr, subhanallah.
Then know brothers and sisters, that is the way that we are? Then the destruction will come upon us along with those other people. You’re judged like those people in that village*. And you know we experience this ‘Oh brother why do you bother with those kuffar? Why do you bother giving dawah to those people?’ Subhanallah. ‘We’re just here don’t rock the boat. We have a nice comfortable life here.’
You see this is taking place, right in front of our eyes. Just like the Prophet said ‘You will follow those who came before you, step by step, hand span by hand span’. Without dawah Allah he will destroy those people unless they make repentance. Unless they repent they will be destroyed. When Allah he destroys the kuffar, they will be destroyed along with them. They are like them, they have become like them.
Dawah without knowledge is no good. This is one of our problems. We have knowledge but without the enthusiasm. Too many brothers I see, knowledge but no enthusiasm. Only enthusiasm for backbiting other Muslims and attacking them. No enthusiasm. We’re surrounded by the kuffar, don’t criticise this one for this mistake and this one for that mistake .Subhanallah. What are we doing in this country anyway? If you want to criticise Muslims go to Muslim land, hijra, leave. Go and reform the Muslims there. Here we need to concentrate on our immediate problem and that is kuffar, we’re surrounded by them. We shouldn’t infact, many ulama, many ulama they said that it’s not permissible to live in this land, it is not allowed to be in the land of the kuffar. As one brother described it ‘the lion’s den’, this is the lion’s den. Brothers and sisters this England is where all this kufr of the Western world started from, the industrial revolution, the great British Empire. From here, the lion’s den. Why do we come here as Muslims? Is it even allowed for us to do that? To leave the lands of Islam, the lands where the mosque is everywhere, the lands where people all of them are fasting, the lands where even if there are children on the street they’ll learn something about Islam. But this place, even if we send our children to an Islamic school and we sit there and we teach them day and night, we’re afraid that they will fall into kufr. The lion’s den this is. Why did we come here? What for some dunya? For some money? Subhanallah. For some piece of the dunya? Is it worth it? No, hijra is not for money brothers. Hijra is not for money. But that’s how most of us came here and most of us ended up here because our parents came here for money. We moved here for money. Not for deen, not to give dawah, not call to Allah. And this is what the ulama said, many ulama, not all of them, but many ulama they said the only, one of the only reasons, there are other reasons, but one of the only reasons that it is permissible to dwell and to live in the land of the kuffar is to call them to Islam.”
“Another major sin, and it is more than a major sin because these things I am mentioning now are actually acts of kufr and I’m just selecting some, there are many others. In fact, like I said you will find that there is hardly a thing that Allah has prohibited except you find the Muslims doing it. The one thing I thought is worth mentioning, in fact I will say it is important to mention it brothers and sisters especially in this time, is the action of supporting the disbelievers against the Muslims. Supporting the disbelievers against the Muslims is in fact kufr, it is disbelief. This is something that has been clearly stated by Allah (SWT) in the Quran, that to aid the unbelievers against the believers is an act of kufr, of disbelief.
Some brothers and sisters may say ‘Subhanallah what’s this got to do with us? How do we support the kuffar against the Muslims?’ Brothers and sisters you can support the kuffar against the Muslims even by a word. It doesn’t mean that you say ‘Don’t worry you can use my country for airbases’ only. That’s not the only way you can support the kuffar against the Muslims. Not only that you say ‘Don’t worry, we’ll fight with you oh America and Britain and we will fight with you against the Muslims’. Yes this an act of kufr to help the kuffar against the Muslims but even brothers and sisters by a word, even by a word. Even by some statement that you can make. For example, slandering and attacking the Muslims unjustly, such as you find many Muslims have done this about the Taliban. Slandering them and attacking them and reviling them based upon news that has come from the disbelieving media, helping the kuffar against the Muslims. This I have to warn you could be an act of kufr brothers and sisters that could take you out of Islam. Subhanallah. In some way or another, even by a word, even maybe by a sign. I say this brothers and sisters because this is something unfortunately the Muslims have completely neglected and failed to comprehend this fundamental point of our belief and our religion, that our alliance and our allegiance is to the believers.”
“The other opinion is that it is an obligation upon the Muslim to leave the lands of the non-Muslims and to live in the lands of the Muslims. If you look at the various evidences, which we’re not gonna go into them all tonight, but if you look at the various evidences that the scholars bring forth it would seem that the strongest evidence is that it is not permitted for the Muslim to stay and remain and to live permanently in the land of the non-Muslims, meaning hijra is an obligation.”
“So this is a very strong opinion. If you look at the evidences, mashallah the evidences are very strong. So brothers and sisters we have to think about that because remember we said ‘What is ibadah?’ Ibadah is everything which Allah loves and is pleased with from the actions of the heart and the actions of the limbs. So one of the actions of the limbs is where you live. The land where you live is one of the actions of the limbs. It’s an action.”
“You know guys, I’ll tell you something right? I’ll probably, someone at least is probably going to want to assassinate me after what I’m going to say here but you know, I don’t really get very sad when, you know, a non-believer dies, I mean I’m sad they didn’t die a believer, you know, on that level I’m sad, you know.
We say that when someone who is a non-believer, especially someone who is a caller to disbelief, and I mention, for example, two particular personalities that died recently – Lady Diana and Mother Theresa, both of them ardent callers to disbelief in Allah subhana wa ta’ala, So hamdulillah I remember when my dad came, I actually, I was staying with my parents and my dad came down and told me, you know, early in the morning, you know, that Lady Diana had died, you know…hamdulillah…hamdulillah” (laughter).
“If we leave (Muslims) in these (non-Muslim Australian) schools they will be destroyed”
“You know very well what takes place in these schools … it is all about evolution, Christmas, Easter, St Valentine’s Day – a barrage. And you expect your children to survive? You think you live in a sewer and you come up smelling of roses?
“Merely living in the company of evil people will inevitably begin to rub off on us and we will begin to acquire their characteristics.”
“The birth rate in the Western countries is going down. People are more interested in their careers . . . they don’t want to have babies.”
“So don’t you think, Muslim brothers and sisters, we’ve got a bit of an opportunity here? They’re not having babies any more. So what if, instead, we have the babies?
“In Canada one in three or one in four children being born is a Muslim. What does that do to the demographic shift of a Muslim population in 20 years’ time?
“To say I’m going to have two or three children and that’s it — that’s not allowed. The way we overcome the people is through our numbers.”
“Nationalism is something haram. It divides the Muslims. It is one of the inventions of shaytan and it’s one of the means the kuffar have used to disunite us and divide us. It is one of the most divisive philosophies that have ever been invented. And it is so sad to see the Muslim so sad to be of this nation, fighting for their nation, calling for their nation.
The other thing that has divided us is different sects and different groups. The Muslims have divided themselves into different religious sects, diverting from what Allah has said and the messenger has said. And this is all haram and kufr and from following the ways of the kuffar.
And this is something very, very sad that we see Muslims also very busy and so occupied in attacking each other, instead of giving the (?) and advising each other in a nice way that we should, Muslims attacking each other. Even though there’s so many non-Muslims that we have to give dawah to, as you pointed out, not to take as an enemy in the sense that, you know we don’t want to think like that exactly, these are people, they are sick, and they are misguided you know, they need our help. This is how we should look at it I think.”
“...because if you begin to dress like a people, you surely soon will begin to imitate them in your actions. One thing is almost inevitably going to follow from the other. So although we can’t say that to wear the denim and this type of stuff is haram, it is something that, it’s a good point that the questioner made, it is a symbol, you know, of the Western youth, you know, and so on and so forth. So, you know, inshallah, it’s probably better for you and your religion not to try and follow those type of fashions and those type of things. But to say it’s haram, this is a big thing to say it’s haram. But generally we should be cautious of imitating and seeking to imitate and trying to make ourselves look like those people who are the people of unbelief. And this is an extremely unhealthy attitude…If you wear jeans because, I dunno, that you just comfortable and you just wear jeans and you know, you’re not trying to imitate them and trying to look like them, hamdulillah. But this thing where you want to look like them, you want to imitate them, the way they dress you want to dress, so this is very dangerous. It’s very dangerous because inevitably you will start to act like them.”
“I actually believe that the suicide bombers that we are talking about are not a product of Islamic spirituality. I think the reason they were able to do it, this is the controversial bit, is because they had become so Western.”
Islam does not regard Christians who claim that Jesus is God, or the Son of God, as “monotheists” any more than Hindus who claim that Krishna is a “manifestation of God” or Buddhists who claim that Buddha is God. All of this is disbelief and polytheism. It is this that is the basis of conflict. It is a conflict not only sanctioned, but ordered in the Quran:
“Fight against those who believe not in Allah, nor the last day, nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth among the people of the Book , until they pay the jizya (i.e. protection tax) with willing submission and feel themselves subdued” [Noble Quran 9:29]
This is not a confrontation of civilizations, nor is it a clash of cultures. Islam does not oppose the West, or anyone else, because of revenge over past hostilities, out of a desire to restore injured pride or because of the desire to amass their wealth and lands. The fight is for one purpose only and that is to establish the religion of Islam in its totality, as the Prophet (peace be upon him) explained when a man came to him and asked: “One of us fights for booty, another for his tribe and another to be known as brave, which one is fighting jihad?” The Prophet (peace be upon him) replied: “None of them. Only the one who fights to make Allah’s Word the highest is fighting jihad.”
Jihad has three characteristics. The first form is jihad of the heart, or jihad of the self. This is the internal struggle to acquire the correct creed, and to remove from one’s self all doubts and misconceptions concerning this creed, and also the commands and prohibitions enjoined on the believer. It further more encompasses the purifying of the soul from base desires and acquiring noble qualities. The second level is the jihad of the tongue. This is the struggle against evil, and wrong beliefs and actions through preaching and writing books and the like. This form of jihad is characterized by its use against the deviants from among the Muslims, but also extends to the unbelievers. The final form of jihad is that of the hand, or sword, where one expends life and property. It is characterized by its use against unbelievers, but can also be used against deviant groups under the authority of the Muslim ruler. This jihad of the hand, often termed “Holy War”, is further compartmentalized into three stages. The first is that of it being forbidden, as it was in the early days of Muhammad’s prophethood. If the Muslims are weak, and fighting is liable to cause only harm and no benefit, then they should desist. Such is the case of those dwelling in non-Muslim lands. The second stage is that of self-defense, or restricting the fight to
“those who fight you” [Noble Quran 2:190]
and releasing the lands of the Muslims from the control of their enemies. This is the condition of the Muslims today. The final stage is that of fighting in order to open the path for establishing Allah’s rule in the lands of the unbelievers, as was done by the Prophet’s companions and the Muslim rulers after them.
The conflict [between Islam and the West] will be there as long as there are those who stubbornly resist submission to their Lord and Creator. If all of this seems intransigent and fundamentalist that’s because IT IS. With Islam you are dealing with absolutes. This conflict, however, may not necessarily be a violent one, in the sense of war, causing loss of life, limb and property. Islam does not necessarily demand a change through violence if the end can be effectively achieved through other means.
FEMALE SEX SLAVES
“Sexual relations were permitted between a man and his female slaves.
It should be mentioned that sex in general is not considered a bad or evil thing in Islam. It is a lawful pleasure for both men and women. It is however restricted by certain parameters. One of the restrictions is that it must be within the confines of marriage, with the exception above.”
FREEDOM OF RELIGION
“They have written in their charter of Human Rights, their charter of kufr, their charter of calling people to rebel against Allah. In this charter it says that one of the rights of the human being is to choose their religion, one of the rights of the human being is that if they change their religion they should not be intimidated in any way. They should be left to change their religion and to follow whatever they want. This charter of the human right is in direct opposition to what Allah has revealed. The right of the human being is in fact the opposite of that. The right of the human being is to be pressurised to follow the true religion, that they should be living in an environment where they are encouraged or even forced to remain upon the truth that will take them to paradise and keep them away from the hellfire.”
“So finally, we want to very, very briefly touch upon the issue of homosexuality which again is something which is a serious, serious sin in the religion of Islam which Allah (SWT) prohibited us from…and in fact, indeed again it is one of those things that has a proscribed punishment in Islamic law for people who are found participating in this what is to be considered to be an unnatural act.”
“First of all I don’t like to use this word ‘gay’. This word ‘gay’, to use it is already to be fooled by the propaganda of these people, OK? This word is used in order to make this evil and vile act acceptable in society. They should be called at least homosexuals, this is the least. Better to use a more derogatory term like sodomites, this is a better term. Sodomite refers, and therefore automatically brings to mind, in the minds of the people, Sodom and Gomorrah which are the two towns to which Allah sent the Prophet Lut alaihis-salam, who indulged, and they were the first people to indulge in this evil and vile act which Allah severely criticised and condemned in the Quran.”
“Just to illustrate I want to tell you a joke, and it’s not true, it’s a joke. There was this man, he emigrated from the United States of America, from San Francisco, he emigrated to Afghanistan. You know when the Taliban were in power, he went to live there. So they said to him, they were asking him, it’s just a joke, it’s not true, they asked him ‘Why did you leave the land of the free and the land of the brave, America with all the money and all those nice things and everything you want and you came to live in Afghanistan? Why?’ He said ‘When I was a young man homosexuality was a crime. When I grew up they made homosexuality lawful. In fact they made it a crime to dislike homosexuals and call it homophobia.’ He said ‘I was afraid if I stayed around in America any longer they would make it compulsory.’ And really if we think about it, this is the case of democracy. If you say the sovereignty are with the people, and the people can legislate, and the people can decide, I mean here on the very basic philosophical level, I know that countries have constitutions, I know that different ideas of democracy encompass different limitations for minorities and so on and so forth, but that’s not what I’m discussing. I am discussing the very basic concepts and that’s it. At the very basic concept we all have to agree as Muslims that making a crime which is a ‘crime’ in Islam, to say it is actually a crime to have a problem with this ‘crime’, do you understand what I’m saying? It’s a criminal offence in England to revile someone because of their homosexuality. So now it has been made a crime to hate the crime. Can we accept this as Muslims? Can we say that Islam is compatible with this? Does any person in this room think that this type of ideology is compatible with what Allah has revealed? I hope not.”
“All this applies also to the matter of stoning the adulterer and adulteress to death.
Islam has placed great emphasis on protecting and safeguarding the family. It is in fact the structure on which the well-being of society rests.
There is also great emphasis laid on a public display of morality. It is a normal tendency in human societies to justify our actions in the context of how others behave and consider those actions. Islam goes some way to remove this tendency by insisting that deeds should be done to please God, not others. Still, when evil and sins begin to be practiced openly then people imagine that this act is not really that bad and detrimental, because after all, others are doing it. As a result the crime becomes more widespread and a vicious and rapid vortex of moral decline occurs with the ultimate disintegration of society. Islam forbids spying and seeking out of faults, but when sins are committed openly it contains three wrongs: a crime against the self (for that is what sins are, matters that harm the person who commits them) and affront to the law and thus the Law-Maker, and an affront to the good ordering of society. Such crimes thus need suitable and effective punishments that act as a sever warning to others. A public crime deserves a public punishment.
Adultery is punishable by death, and a slow and painful death by stoning. It is indicative of just how harmful this crime is to society. This is more so because in order for the crime to be proven the adulterers need seen performing the act by four reliable witnesses!”
“There is another direction from which the wisdom of such a punishment can be understood, and that is the death of two criminals can prevent the death and agony of many innocents. There is no doubt that adultery has caused many a jilted partner to kill not only the partner but in some instances the children as well. This is the harm that we can measure and see. It is more than likely that the psychological effects on the jilted partner, the children and their families is extensive, and can lead to behavioural problems that ultimately affect the well-being of the whole society! The “harm” of the punishment for adultery is offset by the need of the “benefit” and protects the wider society. All of this also goes some way to help understand way acts of homosexuality are similarly treated so harshly.”
“That is democracy, the rule of the people. So if they want to make homosexuality halal, they make it halal. If they want to make beer halal, they make it halal. Wa…if they want to make it compulsory for you to experience some, you know, homosexuality, ’cause after all it’s natural, they tell us now yes? They can make it law, they’ll make it law.”
“In fact…the Muslim countries are falling headlong, head over heels trying to imitate the West and to run after the West. And that is mainly because they are totally unaware of the reality…But the reality is it’s not like Hollywood. It’s not like Hollywood. And you know, it’s remarkable, I don’t know about here but in England we have a lot of brothers coming over from Morocco and Algeria, and I know the brothers over there, and the sisters as well, have this image of the West, this glorified image of the West. Almost literally as if the streets are paved with gold, this is the idea they have.
And in fact, so many brothers come from Algeria and Morocco and these places and they come thinking, and they go to the discos, and they do this and they do that, and they come and bit by bit they start seeing the reality of what it is really actually like. And so many of them, Mashallah, start practising Islam and they start practising it very strongly, which they never did in their countries, because they saw for themselves the reality of the situation. They saw for themselves what it is really like. They looked behind, you know, the make up and they saw the reality of what is behind is an ugly old bag.”
“…the Western university, I don’t call it education. You know what you get in your school? You don’t get education, you get indoctrination. That’s what you get. It’s an indoctrination system. You’re not educated, you’re indoctrinated.
And I caution you, not only concerning yourselves but certainly and even more your children. What are you putting your children into? What environment are you putting your children into? Their environment is Christmas…then what is it? It’s Easter…and then it’s the next thing – Australia day or I don’t know, whatever.
So we need to really open our own Muslim schools and our own Muslim universities but that is gonna take effort, it’s gonna take time, it’s gonna take money, it’s gonna take dedication. But if you want to save yourselves and your families from the fire, if you want your children and your great-grandchildren to stay Muslims, you’re gonna have to make that effort brothers and sisters.”
“The Quran is clearly telling first of all that Allah has given the man a responsibility. A responsibility to ensure that his family, his wife, his children are following the straight path. The straight path that leads to Allah. The straight path that leads to paradise and goes away from the hellfire. This is the responsibility the man has been given. Now all of us recognise, for example, that any government, any government has the responsibility to care for its citizens. Is that true or not? Yes? And does not every government have the responsibility to prevent criminal action? Yes or no? Is it the responsibility of the government to arrest the thieves and the murderers and the rapists? And to do something with them to prevent that happening and to prevent that evil spreading in society? Is that not the duty of government? Yes or no? And don’t we all recognise that governments are allowed to use some type of force in order to arrest such people? And to prevent them from their harm? Yes or no?“
“So we recognise that those in authority have the right to use force if they have to prevent some evil taking place. What is the problem therefore that Islam has given the head of the household some allowance to use a type of force in order to prevent his family from falling into evil?”
“So if someone sees that his wife is going astray, or that his family is going astray then Allah has given a system of correction to prevent this crime that will lead to something much worse than prison, it will lead to the hellfire.”
“So if your relationship is like that (links hands) then you turn your back on your wife, your wife is gonna feel sad and she’s gonna relent to that. Even if this after some time does not work then the husband is allowed, to prevent her from evil, to apply some type of physical force. This is a type of very light beating. In fact, as some scholars mentioned it is to hit with the miswack, but what we know from the prophet is this type of beating is not allowed to leave any type of mark. It is not allowed to break the skin, does not allow to break a bone or even leave a mark on the skin. A beating that is that severe is forbidden and this is a type of assault, and is haram, and a crime in Islam to treat your wife like that. But a type of physical reprimand in order to bring her to goodness is allowed.”
“Oppression means to deprive something of its rights. Which means to deprive something of what its nature requires of it. So therefore let’s go back to our discussion, the point at hand, does Islam oppress women? Therefore we ask the question again, with our definitions, does Islam deny women their rights? Does Islam deprive women of what is natural to them? Does it take them away from its nature and does it deprive them of what naturally they should have? This is the question. And of course to answer that question we also have to answer, before that, another question. What is the nature of women? What is their nature? We can only really talk about whether something or someone oppresses women or not when we understand what is the nature of women. Does Islam deprive women of their nature? Does Islam take away from them rights that are naturally due to them, due to their nature? This is the question.”
“Islam has given us, and defined for us the roles of men and the roles of women according to our natures, not according to some ideology. Not according to some hopeful or wishful thinking that ‘Wouldn’t it be nice if this, and wouldn’t it be nice with that?’ But this is not actually connected in any way with the reality of how people are. And what we’re going to find indeed, is that the Western world has been experimenting with human beings on a massive scale for the past sixty years. Humanity has been going through a massive experiment. And I am sure we are all familiar with the ideology prevalent in the West, the ideology that tells us not that men and women are different, but that men and women are the same. There is no difference between the man and the woman. And as they claim, our differences are a product of conditioning.”
“Ignorance of these fundamental facts has led promoters of feminism to believe that both sexes should have the same responsibilities. In reality woman differs profoundly from man”
“And of course this exposes the lie of the claim of the Western world to be motivated by science because we don not find them promoting this ideology that has now been proven by science, rather they still continue to promote the misguided notion that men and women are the same, that both men and women should be able to work, that both men and women should be able to do the same things and should be encouraged to. And they claim this under the banner of ‘noble ideals.’ “
“In fact what we find is that Western society is the society that oppresses women because the nature of the woman is to be a mother. The nature of the woman is to be caring for children. The nature of the woman, her whole biology, her whole chemistry, her nervous system, her mental system is all constructed, whether you belive in Allah, or you believe in evolution, it’s not something you can argue about.”
“They talk about it ‘She’s chained to the kitchen sink’ like she’s some slave, like it’s some menial task. And rather the woman who is honoured is what? The actress, the model, the super businesswoman.”
“This is the woman they honour in this society, the career woman, the politician, the woman who’s a doctor, the woman who’s this and who’s that. ‘Look at her, how successful she is, how independent she is.’ And anyone who stays at home looking after the children, ‘Oh look at that poor little thing, look at her, oh’. Yes you know what I’m talking about. This is a society that oppresses women.”
“When we really examine Islam, when we study the Quran, when we study the example of our noble messenger Muhammad we will truly see that Islam is the religion that accords the women their rights. Men are there to maintain and protect women, it is the job of the man. Our job is to make sure that the woman can stay at home, and she can look after the house, and look after the kids and feel comfortable there and feel happy there. That is our job.”
“But it is our responsibility and because of that Allah requires that the woman is obedient to her husband. That when he tells her to do something and he commands her she should do her best if it’s within her capability, if, this is important, if it’s within her capability she should do it. And this is the respect. This is important in our society. The wife respects the husband and the children will respect the mother. And if the children respect the mother and the wife respects the husband, and the husband respects the authority of the amir, of the ruler, this is our religion.”
“Yes this an act of kufr to help the kuffar against the Muslims but even brothers and sisters by a word, even by a word. Even by some statement that you can make. For example, slandering and attacking the Muslims unjustly, such as you find many Muslims have done this about the Taliban. Slandering them and attacking them and reviling them based upon news that has come from the disbelieving media, helping the kuffar against the Muslims. This I have to warn you could be an act of kufr brothers and sisters that could take you out of Islam. Subhanallah. In some way or another, even by a word, even maybe by a sign. I say this brothers and sisters because this is something unfortunately the Muslims have completely neglected and failed to comprehend this fundamental point of our belief and our religion, that our alliance and our allegiance is to the believers.”
“…we should say to ourselves look, when we followed our religion, when we implemented the shariah, when we implemented Islam, and it was the same shariah then, they say ‘Oh the Taliban, oh the such and such they’re implementing the shariah.’ In the times when Islam was producing the greatest scientists in the world, when scientists, Muslim scientists were discovering optics, when they were discovering the secrets of medicine, when algebra was being invented, when they discussed theories of gravity and atomism, the same shariah was being implemented.”
“Also free mixing between sexes is avoided, men and women should not have physical contact and men and women should not even be alone together (unless they are husband and wife, or from close relatives who are permanently forbidden in marriage). Again in this context adultery is inexcusable, and justly punished with severity.”
“How many people you say to even the shariah? ‘Oh the shariah that’s for then, the law of the jungle. That’s old, harsh punishments, chopping off hands, stoning people to death. You know we don’t need that anymore we have now Western liberal law.’ Subhanallah. And how many Muslims today you find calling for democracy? Do people know what is democracy? I like to have good opinion about my Muslim brothers, I think they only say that because they don’t know what democracy is, they’re ignorant. You know they get amazed with the West and their helicopters and aircraft and cars and, you know, and they think ‘Ooh, democracy, maybe that’s the answer for us.’ I don’t know, that’s it. What is democracy? You know what democracy is? It means the rule of the people. It means the people the sovereignty is with, not Allah, with the people. It means the people decide what is halal and what is haram. It means the people decide what is the laws we should follow and what the laws we should not follow. That is democracy, the rule of the people.
Who knows, maybe they’ll make it law to kill Muslims? Why not? If enough of them say yes…’votes, yes, fifty percent, sixty percent’…that’s it, it’s the law now. Democracy.”
“Let us ask if democracy means that sovereignty is with the people, that the people have the right to decide what’s halal and haram, and it’s up to them, then no Muslim with any mustard seedsworth of imam can agree with this.
So on the basic very philosophical level we have to say Islam is not compatible with democracy. If we mean by democracy that people have the right to legislate and people have sovereignty.”
“They want us to change our religion, they’ve made it clear they now want us to so called ‘liberate our women’ as they call it. They want us to adopt democracy, and I talked about democracy the other night, which is kufr – making man the ruler and not Allah.”
“We want to create an environment where it is encouraging people to be good, otherwise what is the point in the hudood? What is the hudood? Why you chop the hand off the thief? Why you stone the adulterer and the adulteress to death? Why do you chop the hand and the leg of the one who commits highway robbery and leave them to bleed to death or crucify them? All of this is to deter the people from being evil and committing evil. Why is the person who drinks alcohol, who is a drunk, whipped eighty times in public? All of this is to deter the people from being evil.”
“…so therefore every Muslim has to try to implement the shariah completely as much as they are able in their life, both individually as individuals and collectively as nations. We have to implement the shariah both individually and collectively because Islam is a complete way of life. It is a deen, it is a deen. This word that they use ‘religion’, you have to understand the word that is used, ‘religion’, does not sufficiently describe Islam. Because when the people in the West, which you have to remember is a secular society, they talk about religion, they have something already programmed in their mind. To them religion is something that is your own personal affair, it’s your own personal business. You go to the church, you go to the synagogue, you go to the gurdwara, you go to the mosque, in their idea that’s it. Your religion is something in your own personal life. But as for government, as for rulership, as for the laws through which and by which we live, then that is not, in their mind, in the realm of religion. This is not the case with Islam at all.
