Colorado Imam: Intro to Demons & World of the Unseen

Colorado Imam: Intro to Demons & World of the Unseen

Senior Colorado imam & scholar Karim AbuZaid gave an extensive in depth lecture series on the lives of demons & their purpose in 2014. Below in a excerpt of the Introduction to the 7 part series.

We are students of knowledge and we want to discuss this subject as students of knowledge. Here is what we are going to try to cover. First of all, we want to define and describe this world. Briefly: their origin, their creation, their name, their types, their food, their drink, their marriages, their dwelling places, their writings, and their abilities, what can they do and also the things that they cannot do. Don’t assume that they can do anything. Ginn are unable to do certain things. We’re going to discover this. We will talk about the purpose why they were created. So, they were created to do what? To worship like us. The way that they received the message? Do they have their own messenger from the ginn? Or the message that is sent to the humans suffices them? We know for a fact that Prophet Mohammad PBUH he is a messenger to the ginn and to the humans. We believe that. And we have evidence in the Quran and in the Sunnah to establish that belief. 

How Satan plans long-term? You know the Hadith which I narrate to you all the time. That every single morning… Satan sets his throne on water. And he basically gives incentive to his helpers from the ginn, ‘whoever does the best job today in misguiding Muslims I will place the crown with my own hands on your head.’ Disperse. Then the  ginn would disperse to do their mischief. They come in the evening reporting they’re accomplishments for the day.

Donkey and dog they see ginn. Hadith that we quoted when we spoke about the angels. If you hear the crowing of a rooster ask Allah for good things because that’s rooster saw what? Angel. And if you hear the braying of a donkey seek refuge with Allah from Satan because he sees a Shaytan. If you hear the barking of a dog the braying of a donkey seek refuge with Allah because they see that which you do not see.

We believe that actually Satan has two horns. The Prophet PBUH told us when the sun rises wait until it’s fully rises, and then pray and when the sun sets wait until it fully sets and then pray. Why? Because when it rises and when it sets it rises between the two horns of Satan and it sets between the two horns of Satan. He explained that people who worship Satan they choose that time to pray.

Islamic Authority Clarifies Authentic from False Exorcism – Demon World

Islamic Authority Clarifies Authentic from False Exorcism – Demon World

Imam Abu Ameenah Bilal Philips world renown scholar graduate of Medina University  did his PhD thesis in Scotland at the University of Edinburg (Exorcism – differentiating the authentic from the inauthentic). In 1991

Below is a transcript of a lecture uploaded to the Imam’s YouTube channel January of 2014 View Clip

The world of the ginn is not like the world of the unseen in the rest of the universe.  But the world of the ginn collides with our world at different points in time through different individuals. This has direct relevance to our world.

Now the term ginn comes from the verb (jahannah) which means to cover or to hide or to conceal. And it’s refers to creatures who Allah created besides human beings who also have a free will but who dwell in a world which for the most part invisible to us.

They represent a parallel world to our world. Now how that parallel world exists next too ours?  Some people when they hear that… How that parallel world exists with ours it’s not part of our knowledge. It is not possible to know about it. Neither do the ginn know nor do we know.

And basically, the ginn in terms of their modes of existence are of three types… One type which flies in the air all the time, another type which exists as snakes and dogs. And an earthbound type which resides in one place or wonders about. These are the three forms in which the ginn that exist in the world. With regards to their faith they are divided into two categories, believers and disbelievers, just like human beings. And you’ll find among them those who followed Jesus and those who followed Paul or similar ideas of corruption.

Fortune telling remains an attractive world because you have some fortune tellers who give information which turns out to be accurate. They tell you such and such is going to happen and it happened. So, without that of course nobody would bother to go to fortune tellers. Some of the things they inform us of do take place. So, where did they get this knowledge from? Well the Prophet PBUH explained concerning the ginn that he spoke about. The first type that they are aerial, that can leave our atmosphere into the higher, outer reaches of the universe able to travel at speeds, Allah knows best. And they connect up with other ginn who hover near the first heaven. And when Allah gives commands to the angels, and these commands are passed down through the heavens they are able to hear bits and pieces of information. And they relay this information down. In the process of relaying that information comets and meteorites etc. catch some of them and destroy them. But some information works its way down till it reaches that witch or Warlock, fortune teller.

The other area that our world collides with the world of the ginn is the area of magic. Some people think it’s not real. It’s all fake. tricks… In the midst of it all there are some people involved in real magic. And those people who are involved in real magic are not people who have powers that we don’t have… But it is that they have made contact with the world of the ginn and the ginn operate in collaboration with them. They ask you to do certain acts of shirk and you want what appears to be the power. You do it and they will do it for you. So if you see someone come into the room hold his hand and the water bottle comes into his hand. There are people that can do that. It appears to you that he has some kind of power where he can cause that bottle of water to get up off the table and come into his hand. But the reality is that it is a simple act for the ginn. You can’t see the ginn. He lifts up the bottle and puts it in the guy’s hand.

And we have the third major area after fortune telling and magic. The area of demonic possession where the ginn may enter the body of a human being. Some people say no it’s not possible. It’s not real. It’s fake. Reality is that evidence from the Quran and the sunnah indicate that it is a reality. It is authentically narrated… The prophet opened the boy’s mouth and he said ‘O! Enemy of Allah, I am the Messenger of Allah get out.’ Who is he talking to? It’s a little boy. He is obviously addressing an entity that has entered that boy.

Is CBC Suppressing Muslim Voices Concerning Taliban’s Rise to Power?

Is CBC Suppressing Muslim Voices Concerning Taliban’s Rise to Power?

In August of 2021, the Americans withdrew from Afghanistan, which permitted the Taliban to regain control. The CBC reported extensively on this from many angles: human rights, women’s rights, education, interpreters, airport explosion, etc.

One angle that seems to be missing from the extensive coverage of the rise of the Taliban in Afghanistan is the voice of Canadian Muslim leaders. As of September 8, 2021, a search on CBC web site revealed nothing that referred to Canadian Imam Younus Kathrada’s statements about the Taliban.

Imam Younus Kathrada is a senior, influential leader in Canada, who has clearly spoken about the Taliban’s rise to power in Afghanistan.

Below is a transcript of a clip that Canadian Imam Younus Kathrada had up loaded on his YouTube channel on August 20, 2021, View Clip

I incite you to show support for your brothers in Afghanistan who wants to establish the Shari’a in their land. We see that the West wants to talk about the rights of women. Oh yes, the rights of women, her right to be a prostitute, her right to sleep around with whomever she wishes. I want you to understand what those rights are, oh, by the way, her right to be abused, her right to show her body off to men who gets off on watching her in porn. Allah Grant victory to the mujahideen for your sake everywhere. Allah grant success to our brothers in Afghanistan. So that they establish your Sharia on this land.

Further support was added by Senior Colorado Imam Karim AbuZaid, who often speaks in Canadian mosques.

Below is a partial transcript;

Now the laws of Taliban – the laws of the Sharia – of Islam, that’s what they want to implement in their country. So what is wrong with that? Why don’t you place this on the same level, equal to Macron forcing women not to wear their hijab under the notion of keeping the custom and the principles of the Republic?

Listen – the hijab is an element of Islam. Muslims, you should love for the Sharia of Allah to be established through…Taliban happened to be the ruling authority in Afghanistan. Don’t they have the right to at least show their women the Islamic dress code?

On September 8, 2021 at 10am I sent a media inquiry the CBC

Why has the CBC given no coverage to Canadian Imam Younus Kathrada’s statements on the rise to power of the Taliban in Afghanistan when said statement was covered by independent media?

Why has the CBC given no coverage to Canadian Imam Younus Kathrada’s statements on Palestine and al-Aqsa Mosque made over the last several years? These statements were made public by independent media. Why did the CBC see fit to ignore them?

I will be publishing at 5 pm. If you need more time, please let me know.

Iqbal Nadvi August 23 2014

Islam is actually become a kind of solution for humanity and it is only we if Allah uses us it is the best service to make his law a solution for all humanity – if we do this thing – I can say to you it will be the best thing not only for us for this country (Canada) but for the whole of humanity as well.

Mustafa Farooq In a Facebook post (November 3, 2009) wrote (the post is no longer available online):

In terms of civic disobedience, while definitely important, we have to look more closely at how are we Muslims going to recreate Cordoba* in Edmonton/Toronto/Montreal/any Canadian city? We have a massive task ahead of us, but I really believe that it is one at which we can succeed, one in which we erase these artificial “nation-state” identities, and move together to pursue Jannah [paradise].

From an Islamic point of view there is absolutely nothing radical about wanting caliphate or wanting Shari’a. These are completely normal traditional points of view.

Syed Hassan Mujtaba Rizvi

You have to realize this is not going to stop it is only the beginning and as it goes forward these are the steps towards the one government that is going to be over the whole world that is the government of the Imam.

Similarities Between Taliban – Mustafa Farooq & Canadian Imams

Similarities Between Taliban – Mustafa Farooq & Canadian Imams

What is a Taliban? Taliban means seeker of knowledge.

In the true sense of the word Canadian Muslim scholars are Taliban.

What is the main goal or mission of the political group known as Taliban? Taliban official spokesmen have communicated that it is to establish a Caliphate – Islamic State – governed by shari’a law.

Senior respected influential Muslim Canadian leaders teach that it is a moral obligation for all Muslims to strive to implement shari’a law in Canada and the world. “Muslims do not want to take over for the sake of taking over.” “Wanting to establish sharia is a perfectly health, normal, thing for Muslims to want.” View Clip

In 2011, Mustafa Farooq CEO of NCCM, (National Council of Canadian Muslims), a leading Muslim advocacy and charitable organization that advises the Liberal Party on all matters concerning the Muslim community, did publicly state “We need to establish shari’a law in Edmonton, Ottawa, and Montreal and eliminate nation state identities”

Imam Shabbir Ally did say that groups such as “ISIS… are using verses from the Quran, Hadith and Shari’a law to justify their action”

Islamic Booth at Dundas SQ in Toronto distributes literature that instructs Muslims on their religions duty to fight to establish Sharia law.

ICNA Canada on it’s site has a book Garden of the Righteous so long as Kufr [disbelief] is present in this world, it is necessary to wage Jihad against it to finish it off, and so long as all the disbelievers do not openly accept Islam and adopt the Islamic way of life, Muslims are duty- bound to make Jihad against them.”

The following is excerpt from PETTITION 411 The precursor to m103.

  • Recently an infinitesimally small number of extremist individuals have conducted terrorist activities while claiming to speak for the religion of Islam. Their actions have been used as a pretext for a notable rise of anti-Muslim sentiments in Canada; and
  • These violent individuals do not reflect in any way the values or the teachings of the religion of Islam. In fact, they misrepresent the religion. We categorically reject all their activities. They in no way represent the religion, the beliefs and the desire of Muslims to co-exist in peace with all peoples of the world.

Is it reasonable, based on petition 411 and m103, to conclude that those who oppose establishing an Islamic state in Canada are participating in an act of Islamophobia?
