Meet Sheikh Ahmed Hassoun, Syria's "Grand Mufti"

“If politeness and ceremony be observed toward Mohammedans, they imagine they are feared and become arrogant; but in showing severity and rudeness, they are impressed with fear and respect, and they are supple and manageable.”

–North China Herald,1867

It is mindboggling that headbangers like this Sheikh Ahmed Hassoun  are allowed to speak at the EU parliament. Creatures like this should be held in contempt by self-respecting, civilized Europeans:

Some examples here:

Grand Mufti of Syria: “a single civilisation unites us all..”

Religion of  bridge-builders….

Euro-dhimmies ban showing of FITNA

(after instructions from Syria’s grand mufti, of course…)

Syria’s Grand Mufti warns EU-Dhimmi’s to restrict Free Speech. Or else…

How  can Mohammedanism spread when infidels are allowed to insult the profit?

Robert Spencer has this:

Syria’s Mufti: “If Mohammed had commanded us to kill people, I would have told him he was not a prophet”

Here is a particularly audacious exercise in deception from Sheikh Ahmed Hassoun, the Mufti of Syria. I say deception because his assertions are so flagrantly at variance with the Qur’an and Sunnah that he simply must know that what he is saying is false. And while it is remotely possible that he is attempting to work a loophole by saying that Muhammad never said these things while knowing that the Qur’an does say them, on the pretext that Allah, not Muhammad, wrote the Qur’an, there is enough in the Hadith to show that Muhammad said the same things as well. Detailed explanations below.

“Syria’s Mufti: Islam commands us to protect Judaism,” from Haaretz, January 19 (thanks to all who sent this in):

Syria’s foremost Muslim leader declared on Tuesday that Islam commands its followers to protect Judaism, according to Army Radio.”If the Prophet Mohammed had asked me to deem Christians or Jews heretics, I would have deemed Mohammed himself a heretic,” Sheikh Ahmed Hassoun, the Mufti of Syria, was quoted as telling a delegation of American academics visiting Damascus.

Egypt: Muslim Brotherhood Files Lawsuit Against Sheikh Tantawi's Burqa Fatwa

Veiled criticism

From Al-Arabiya H/T Elder of Zion

A group of MPs and an Islamist lawyer waged an unprecedented legal battle against one of Egypt’s top Imams on Saturday after he issued a ban on women wearing the burka, or face veil, at any schools affiliated to al-Azhar, the world’s top Sunni Islam institution.

Kuwait News Flash:

On the other hand, the women sure are growing restless in the Lands of the Burqa. For example, two female Kuwaiti Members of Parliament, Rola Dashti and Aseel Al-Awadhi, are defying the country’s powerful Islamist movement by refusing to wear hijab, or the headscarf, in Parliament. More from Phyllis Chesler

A Muslim brotherhood lawyer, representatives of Egypt’s lower house of parliament and the Sawaseya Center for Human Rights joined forces to file a lawsuit against Sheikh Mohammad Sayyed Tantawi, the Grand Imam of al-Azhar over what they called his “unconstitutional” ban that violates personal freedom and contradicts the principle of equality for all citizens.

Temporary Marriages are Cool, sez Egypt's Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa

H/T Jawa Report

Sheikh Ali Goma’a (Arabic:علي جمعة ‘AlÄ« Jum‘ah) is the Grand Mufti of Egypt through Dar al-Ifta al-Misriyyahsucceeding Ahmad El-Tayeb. He has been called “one of the most widely respected jurists in the Sunni Muslim world,” and described as “a highly promoted champion of moderate Islam,” gender equality, and an “object of hatred among Islamists.” He specializes in the science of the foundations of Islamic Law, viz. Usul al-fiqh. He follows the Shafi`i school of Islamic jurisprudence.

satan-1htmIn case you don’t remember: the Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa is the guy who would blow up the pyramids because they stem from the pre-Islamic era, the Jahiliya, the pre-Islamic Arabian age of “ignorance”.  This is the Grand Mufti from Azhar university who claimed that even the urine and the excrement of the prophet were pure gold.  Ali Gomaa decreed the killing of Israelis travelling to other countries permissible in Islam,  because Israelis are “Harbi and the Harbi spreads corruption throughout the face of the earth.” His WIKI profile is heavily doctored, if not laughable: Gomaa believes the best antidote to Islamic extremism is “traditional conception of sharia law — along with knowledge of Islamic jurisprudence”

Gomaa stuck to his position despite criticism, claiming that everything which emanated from the Prophet is pure and sacred.

* And now he legitimizes the practice of temporary marriage, which -as some of us know- is only practiced by the Shiite rafidite dogs and apostates, just like the time honored practice of kitman & taqiyya, something a good Sunni Muslim would never do, right? Right?

Unbelievable News From Egypt : Legal Fornication

CAIRO (by Ahmed al-Sayed)

Egypt‘s Grand Mufti Ali Gomaa announced thattravelers marriages, known as nikah mesyar in Arabic, are legitimate unless banned by the state. 

Nikah mesyar is a Sunni Muslim marriagecontract in which the woman gives up many of the rights she would be afforded under a traditional marriage contract. (Folks, somehow this sounds like some arms length transaction in the vice trade). Read it all>>

Back to the urine & saliva fatwas:
  • Many Muslims have written and complained, accused us that we were reporting falsehoods or making it up. Fact is we only report what their clerics are telling us:
The Companions of the Prophet Blessed Themselves with His Urine, Sweat and Saliva 
In his book Religion and Life – Modern Everyday Fatwas, Egyptian Mufti Dr. Ali Gum’a wrote that the companions of the Prophet Muhammad would bless themselves by drinking his urine, and described an incident of urine-drinking from a hadith: “Umm Ayman drank the urine of the Prophet, and the prophet told her: ‘This stomach will not be dragged through the fire of Hell, because it contains something of our Lord the Messenger of Allah…’

“This blessing,” Al-Gum’a added, “[can also] be done with the honorable saliva, sweat, hair, urine or blood of the Prophet. This is because anyone who knows the love of the Messenger of Allah is not repulsed [by these]; just as a mother is not repulsed by the feces of her son, this is even more so [in the case of] our Lord the Messenger of Allah, whom we love more than our fathers, sons, and wives. Anyone who was or is repulsed by the Messenger of Allah must recant his faith.”

Following the ensuing uproar, Gum’a came to the defense of his fatwa, saying: “The entire body of the Prophet, whether exposed or hidden, is pure, and there is nothing in it- including his secretions – that [can] repulse anyone. His sweat smelled better than perfume. Umm Haram would collect this sweat and distribute it to the people of Al-Madina.”
