The Hypocrisy of British Imams and the Ignorance of British Muslims

· Islam, Religion

I would like to expose the dissimulations in the recent media of the attitude of British Imams.

“27 June 2014 Last updated at 18:54 BST

Imams at mosques across the UK have been using Friday prayers to discourage young Muslim men from fighting in Syria.”

Yet by doing so, they are actually going against the Commands of Allah:

[*2.216] Fighting is enjoined on you…

[*2.217]… fighting in it. Say: Fighting in it is a grave matter…persecution is graver than slaughter…

[*2.218]…strove hard in the way of Allah…

[*2.244] …fight in the way of Allah

[*4.89] …take not from among them friends until they fly (their homes) in Allah’s way(non-Muslims); but if they turn back [to their homes], then seize them and kill them wherever you find them…

[4.90] Allah has not given you a way against them [Allah supposedly does not allow Muslims to fight people friendly to Muslims].

[*4.91]…seize them and kill them wherever you find them…

[*5.33] The punishment of those who wage war against Allah and His apostle and strive to make mischief in the land is only this, that they should be murdered or crucified or their hands and their feet should be cut off on opposite sides or they should be imprisoned [Pickthall and Yusuf Ali have “exiled” rather than “imprisoned”]

[9.5] So when the sacred months have passed away, then slay the idolaters wherever you find them, and take them captives and besiege them and lie in wait for them in every ambush, then if they repent and keep up prayer and pay the poor-rate, leave their way free to them; surely Allah is Forgiving, Merciful.

It is clear that Allah expects all Muslims to fight in the name of Allah and to defend the faith. Then is must be concluded that what the British Imams were saying were dissimulations to deceive the British public. Allah’s command to observe Jihad against infidels is  Ordained upon ALL MUSLIMS.

Yet, this is what British Imams have uttered:

“A Muslim leader has told parents they must be responsible for their children’s education after two Cardiff men tried to recruit jihadists to fight in Syria and Iraq.

Sheikh Zane Abdo, imam at Cardiff’s South Wales Islamic Centre, said children should be “connecting with the prophets” – not using social media.  >>>>>

Imams at mosques around the UK are using Friday’s sermon to discourage men from fighting in Syria.

Speaking at prayers, Sheikh Zane Abdo said if people want to help those in Syria and Iraq, they could get a Saturday job, earn money and send it to refugees there.”

He said: “Parents, giving their children the right education, the right discipline, manners, respect…a good education, knowing where your children are going… now they’re on mobile phones …who are they talking to… on Facebook and these type of things? Whether its extremists or whether its people glorifying drugs… the only glorification our children should be connected to, is a connection to the prophets.”[2]


Firstly. the British Imams are placing the responsibilities for the education of Muslim children back on to their parents so that they cannot place the blame of any misinterpretations of Islam on to the Imams. Sheikh Zane Abdo said that Muslim children should be connected to the teachings of the prophet Muhammad and not to the Social Media. But it is also clear that Muhammad’s teachings are:

[*2.216] Fighting (Jihad) is enjoined on you…

[*2.217]… fighting (Jihad) in it. Say: Fighting in it is a grave matter…persecution is graver than slaughter…

[*2.218]…strove hard(Jihad) in the way of Allah…

[*2.244] …fight(Jihad) in the way of Allah

But “Sheikh Zane Abdo said if people want to help those in Syria and Iraq, they could get a Saturday job, earn money and send it to refugees there.” Sheik Zane Abdo did not condemn Jihad, but offered a alternative way of supporting Jihad; by way of alms for the cause. A clever way of deceiving his audience into believe that he was against Jihad – he was not in any way dissuading anyone from performing Jihad, only suggesting an alternative. But nothing can diminish the status of a mujahideen performing the Jihad:

Mujahid The Most Superior:
Narrated Abu Said Khudri RadhiAllahu anhu, somebody asked, “O Allah’s Messenger Salallahu-alaihiwasallam!  Who is the best among the people?”    Allah’s Messenger Salallahu-alaihiwasallam replied, “A believer who performs Jihad with his life and wealth.”  They asked, “Who is next?”  He replied, “A believer who stays in one of the mountain paths worshipping Allah and leaving the people safe from his mischief.”
Sahih Bukhari, (p391, vol.1).

It is clear from this Hadith that the person who does Jihad in Allah’s path is more superior than other Muslims.  This has also been clearly stated in the Quran:

Allah has preferred in grades those who strive hard and fight with their wealth and lives above those who sit (at home).  Unto each, Allah has promised good (Paradise), but Allah has preferred those who strive hard and fight above those who sit (at home) by a huge reward.”
(The Noble Quraan, 4 :  95.

It is regarding the great virtue and importance of Jihad that the Prophet Salallahu-alaihiwasallam participated in Jihad personally and urged his companions RadhiAllahu anhu upon this deed so much so that there was no deed more beloved and virtuous in the eyes of the Sahaba as much as Jihad.
Some examples of the love for Jihad amongst the Sahabah:-

Hazrat Umar RadhiAllahu anhu said, “Perform Haj as this is a good deed, Allah has ordained us to perform Haj and Jihad is even better.”
Kanzul Ummal, (p258, vol.2).

No parent, no Imam, can deny the status of a mujahideen performing Jihad to any Muslim. And a Muslim will have learned very early in his Islamic education the esteem of the Mujahideen Jihadist within the Islamic community. There is no escape from this glorification of Jihadism in the service of Allah. There are 164 verses in the Quran extolling the virtues of Jihad to show its primacy of place in the Islamic ideology. No parent can be unaware of a Muslim’s obligations to Allah, neither will any Imam ignore the essence of Jihad in the doctrine of Islam and neither will any of them dare to condemn or discourage any Muslim from offering his greatest gift to Allah. Jihad, and martyrdom is an integral part of Islam and its source of strength of power that has ruled the Islamic world for 1400 years. Let no one forget that.
The radicalisation of Muslims is instilled by being a devout Muslim who studies thoroughly and and obeys asll the commands of Allah as prescribed in the Quran. All the Commands of Allah are for the advancement of Islam and for the defeat of infidels until Allah rules the world. The Quran is the recruiting sergeant for Mujahideen Johadists. You need look no further.

Earlier, the head of Wales’ counter-terrorism unit denied that police are failing in their efforts to combat the radicalisation of young Muslims. [2]

The British Police are the natural enemies of Islam because they are not Muslim. I Quote:

Quran 5:51: don’t take non-Muslims as friends?

Translation of Quran 5:51 by Muhammad Al-Hilali & Muhsin Khan:

O you who believe! Take not the Jews and the Christians as Auliya (friends, protectors, helpers, etc.), they are but Auliya to one another. And if any amongst you takes them as Auliya, then surely he is one of them. Verily, Allah guides not those people who are the Zalimoon (polytheists and wrongdoers and unjust).


So any interference from the Police or any non-Muslim groups will be taken as tampering with Islamic ideology.  Only the Muslims can help themselves and it is clear that they have not changed their Quran or their Hadiths or Sharia Laws  in 1400 years and are not about to so any time soon.

It is clear that those parents playing victims are actually victims of their own teachings, Islam.

I hope this clear some of the disambiguations that appear in our press. It also shows the ignorance and confusion of Muslim parents who plead for the return of their children who have gone as mujahideens to Syria or Afghanistan or Pakistan when the parents themselves have groomed their children to be good Muslim and to serve Allah well and then are surprised when they do so.
