Firas Al-Najim, who self identifies as a Shia Muslim, is a leading pro Palestinian Canadian activist and a founder of the organization, – Canadian Defenders For Human Rights, – who vociferously supports the Iranian Régime, did as the leader of CD4HR tweeted on July 3 2021
Is the call, by Firas Al-Najim, a self proclaimed, defender of Human Rights, and a proclaimed ally of marginalized people, call to cancel pride month, which is a month set aside to empower queer people and to remember and celebrate their contributions to humanity, in keeping with Islamic values as portrayed by the Islamic leadership in Canada?
We first learn from Sunni Street Dawah Toronto, who for the last decade has been spreading the message of Islam at a portable Islamic booth called “Free Info on Islam” in downtown Toronto (Dundas Square).
On June 28, 2019 Street Dawah Toronto issued a statement on the Pride Parade and the LGBTQ community:
LGBTQ lifestyle goes against what Islam permits, The Facebook post also makes reference to the Prophet Lut. Complete and utter destruction of the city Gomorra and all inhabitants because of homosexuality
We learn more about the Islamic view on homosexuality from a book that is distributed from this Islamic Booth Clear Your Doubts About Islam.
Islam considers homosexuality to be the result of human choice. Inclinations can exist toward natural acts and unnatural ones such as rape, pedophilia or bestiality. AIDS was first observed among the homosexual communities. Later, it entered the heterosexual community through so-called bisexuals. Islamic teachings emphasize the distinctions between male and female.
For further elucidation on the Islamic view of Homosexuals we learn from senior respected Sunni Imam Wael Shehab from the Toronto Masjid, that is promoted by Toronto, Mayor John Tory, as a place to learn about authentic Islam
Words of Imam Wael Shehab
Islam has a clear stand on this issue, as it emphatically forbids homosexuality and lesbianism. It states clearly that same-sex marriage poses a serious and dangerous threat to human societies and communities.
Same-sex marriage endangers true faithful family atmosphere where children should be soundly and morally raised. Gay and lesbian marital relationships pose serious dangers to the family institution. Same-sex marriage, moreover, threatens the existence of human species.
Often invited to lecturer in Canada. American Imam Hamza Sodagar shares his wisdom on the diversity of methods concerning Homosexuals.
If there’s homosexual men, the punishment is one of five things. One, the easiest one maybe, is cut their head off. The second is, burn them to death. Third, throw them off a cliff, fourth tear down a wall on them so they die. Fifth a combination of the above.
We learn from Canadian Shia Imam Zafar Bangash
We cannot live in coexistence with such people. Brothers in Islam now is the time to pick up the stones and stone these people to death for the abomination they are committing. Video
We end this segment of Islam Moving forward in Canada with the words of two Canadian world renowned Sunni Scholars Hakim Quick & Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips
They asked me what is the punishment for homosexuality. And I said put my name in the paper, the punishment for homosexuality is death. We cannot change Islam. Video
Imam Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips
The punishment for homosexuality in Islam is execution. That is the law. Execution. Video
In conclusion we learn Sunni and Shia Muslims unite under the banner of the ONE True Religion in their position on the need to eradicate Homosexuality. Further more According to Muslim leaders the punishment should not be viewed as cruel to the individual homosexual but a blessing from Allah MHNBE, in guiding the Muslim community along the straight path that leads to Jannah (Paradise)
Before ending this episode of Islam Moving Forward in Canada I share Islamic wisdom from the book Human Rights in Islam And Common Misconceptions distributed in Toronto at Dundas Sq. Toronto Islamic Booth
All the above punishments in Islam are to preserve human rights and dignity of law- abiding citizens. They are a demonstration and illustration of absolute divine wisdom, and justice.
