Here’s the important piece (……) He will accept no more what is known to be the tax. What is the tax? If you have a Christian or a Jew living in the boundaries of a Muslim country you have no right whatsoever, look at the tolerance of Islam, to force them to leave the religion. That’s where you understand …… No compulsion for those. You can’t. In fact you’re obliged to protect their shrines their houses of worship, you are to protect them. In fact if you’re attacked by another force from outside you go fight in protection of this man. and he stays at home. Save your life, save your wealth, in return we will defend you. Tolerance! In return you pay a tax. Prophet Jesus will no longer accept the Jizya, that tax. That means it is an indication no other religion then Islam. Sharia of Mohammad

Not many non-Muslims understand the importance of the five daily prayers. Four senior Imams will contextualize the prayer in an effort to Dispel misinformation. The following is narrated by Eric Brazau.
Hello & welcome to another segment of “Islam Moving forward in Canada. We will learn about the prayer that is repeated 17 times a day within the 5 daily prayers.
We begin with Senior Imam Karim Abu Zaid who asked in a lecture >>“Why is this sura called the mother of the Quran … It was called mother of the Quran because all the meanings of the Quran are compiled in those seven verses the rest of the Quran came after to detail and explain it.”
The following is the translation of Surah (chapter) al-Fatihah as provided by Omar Subedar, Imam at Brampton, ON Makki Masjid,
[In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful]
All praise is for Allah, the Sustainer of every creation
The Most Merciful and the Ever Merciful
Master of the Day of Compensation
It is only You who we worship and only You Who we seek assistance from
Guide us to the straight path
The path of those you bestowed favours upon, not those who have incurred [Your] wrath and those who have deviated” >>>
Continuing our contextualized understand we look to the book “Commentary on The Holy Quran” by Mirzā Ghulām Ahmad, leader and the founder of the Ahmadiyya Movement: >>>
“All commentators are agreed that those who incurred Divine wrath and those who went astray are the Jews and Christians respectively … Those who incurred Divine displeasure are the Jews and those who went astray are the Christians.”>>>
Further elucidation comes from Edmonton Alberta Sahaba Mosque, guest speaker Imam Osman Haji Madad >>>
“Who are those who earned the wrath of Allah?… They are the Jews… Those who were cursed by Allah. Allah was angry at them and turned them into monkeys and pigs.” End Quote. Some text use the word Apes rather than `monkeys

Below is a partial transcript of a lecture uploaded by senior Imam Karim AbuZaid on Oct 14, 2017
You know, the people that want to attack Islam. They want to prove that Islam is violent religion. They end up bringing out that verse in chapter called Taubah 9:5 “kill the infidels Where you find them smite them. You know the famous words. – Again manipulation. Ya the verse is there you cannot deny it. Actually if you translate it this is the translation you gona come up with. But what you need to understand that this verse was revealed in an occasion. What is the occasion? The mushriks, polytheists we’re still occupying the Haram, the house of Allah, the kaba, and they still had their idols around the Kaba. Mohammad PBUH wanted to perform hadj. And it is not befitting him to do tora when these idols are there. So he sent Ali ibn Abi Talib (cousin, son-in-law and companion of Prophet Muhammad). to give them four months warning. Vacate the Haram get out of there. After the four months I am at war with you. Now the Arabs from the past used to honor and respect the Kaba. Imagine if somebody kills another person and he would go inside the Kaba no one ther come near him. Until what? somebody would kill the father of someone else – he killed your father. But you cannot come near him as long as he is where? You can’t. You wait for him. If he stays there for a month or two you can’t touch him. Until he what? So Allah MHNBE is telling the Muslims after the fourth month you are at war with them regardless where they are. – where they are – It does not matter. – Even if they are inside the Haram. So this is the context but Fox and box and CNN and all these guys are after us. They approach the book with what? – With that belief that Islam is what? I think the idea is conveyed.
Hello & welcome to “Islam moving Forward in Canada” Several years ago Abdool Hamid a senior Imam at the Toronto Center Mosque at Bay & Dunda gave a lecture. In this lecture Imam Abdool Hamid was contextualizing the context surrounding the duty, obligation of true believing Muslim to save Canada. In this lecture Imam Abdool Hamid said & I quote
Ultimately brothers and sisters our goal as Muslims should be to transformto move it along. Not just to be satisfied with the situation as we find it and we try to fit in somehow. As I said that may be necessary initially. But Islam came to transform the lives of people to improve it for them. By change I don’t mean we want to take over for the sake of taking over. By change what I mean is to improve the lives of people. That’s why Islam came. And that’s what it did in the time of the prophet Muhammad, peace and blessings be upon him. Of course in improving the lives of people changes will have to be made so it may seem from one perspective that Islam took over so to speak.
