Below is a transcript of part of a lecture given by Canadian Imam Aasim Rashid made in 2003 regarding the near successful attempt to begin introducing Shari’a law; first with all Family matters.
The Canadian government wanted people like myself to sign off on custody cases. Where there was an allegation of parental abduction to verify if the parent who has taken the child off to that country – are they Islamically authorized to do so or not. Becausethere are many Muslim countries that would need to see that from a Muslim scholar.
ICNA Canada helps influence & shape policyregarding the Canadian Government’s approach to promoting the true message of Islam within a multicultural Canadian society. ICNA Canada’s official web site shared the book “Riyad us Saliheen” (“The Gardens of the Righteous” رياض الصالحين), a collection of aHadith with modern commentary compiled by Imam Sharaf An-Nawawi, a Sunni scholar of the 13th century.
[Hadith]: 913. `Imran bin Husain (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A woman came to the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) after having conceived from Zina (adultery). She submitted: “O Messenger of Allah! I am liable to Hadd (punishment ordained by Allah), so execute it.” The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) called her guardian and said, “Treat her well and bring her to me after delivery and a time for the suckling the child.” The guardian acted accordingly (months later delivered the woman). Then the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) commanded to tie her clothes firmly around her and then stoned her to death. The Prophet (PBUH) then offered funeral prayer for her.
In conclusion we learn that the Prophet did not have the woman stoned while she carried the child but allowed the child to be born and suckled before the mother of the infant child was stoned to death. Scholars point to this as irrefutable evidence of the Messenger’s infinite wisdom, kindness and compassion.
The following is more context regarding stoning to death from IslamQ&A
It is not permissible to replace stoning of an adulterer with killing by the sword or by shooting. Read More
Shia Imam Syed Rizvi & Sunni Imam Iqbal Nadvi Unite under the banner of The One TRUE Religion for all Mankind along with ICNA Canada to propose Islam as the solution for Canada.
Shia Imam Syed Rizvi Explains that Muslim in Canada should only enter politics to advance, minorities Muslim people and the religion of Islam in Canada as well as internationally.
Answer the other choice is what we call smart engagement. This is where you had to study the political system of Canada how it works and how you can engage with the system for the betterment of the country as well as the minorities. Especially for the Muslim minority. And from our point of view when we look at this issue the ultimate purpose should be to promote Justice in society for all citizens especially the minorities…. Especially the minorities because we (Muslims) are a minority… I think you had to look at you know other minorities around yourself in Canada and you will see almost all of them religious and ethnic communities, especially those who are minorities, they’re fully engaged with the system in order to safeguard their own interest locally as well as international.
The following is from the book Human Rights in Islam & common misconceptions. This book that is distributed Islamic Booth at Toronto Dundas sq. portrays Jihad as a knobble endeavored. Islamic Booth
Jihad is… an honorable ‘struggle’ and resistance against those who oppose the peaceful spread of Allah’s Word and faith in Him and His religion of Islam…
A ‘Mujahid’ (Muslim fighter for the cause of Allah)… has a clear understanding that Jihad is only for just reasons: to protect Islam and the Muslims, and to spread the message of Islam and Word of Allah.
This book available at Toronto Dundas SQ. helps us to contextualize what we will hear from Canadian Armed Forces Chaplain and ex President of Canadian Council of Imams
Islam has become a kind of solution for humanity. It is only we Muslims, if Allah uses us it is the best service we can do to make Islam the real solution for humanity. If we do this thing I can tell you that it will be not only for us for this country (Canada) but for all humanity as well.
Now we learn from the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) a registered Canadian charity (Registration No. 118951169RR0001) working for the welfare of the community since 1970. AIQ
The objective of jihad warrants that one must struggle against kufr – disbelief and shirk – polytheism and the worship of falsehood in all its forms. Jihad has to continue until this objective is achieved. The jihad will continue till the day of Resurrection. It is incumbent on the Muslims to wage jihad against them to wipe out disbelief and shirk. And raise the banner of oneness of God everywhere. This Hadith strongly refutesthe people who distort the Islamic concept of jihad and hold that Islam preachers defensive war only.
Jihad aims to set them on the path of worship of Allah and to provide a just and equitable society to mankind. Wherever in the world there is tyranny ignorance and heresy Muslims are bound to fight such evils and finish them by means of jihad
In Conclusion we now better comprehend the means by which the Muslim community will help Canada transfer to an Islamic society that embraces Peace and Justice as defined by the wisdom of Allah MHNBE, as transmitted by the Prophet Mohammad PBUH, as practiced by the Rashidun MABPWT.
An advertisement on Facebook by the Furqaan project reads: – AIQ Spread the Light of the Quran in Canada – Help deliver the most important message of all: The Word of Allah MHNBE. – Put the Book [Quran] that was revealed to the Prophet ﷺ, into the hands of every non-Muslim in Canada
You might ask Why it is so important to bring the message of Islam to every Canadian?
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 improving the life of people changes will have to be made, so it may seem from one perspective that Islam took over so to speak
Sharia is the law of god, the law of Allah which is good for all times, all people in all places. That is the reality
We now learn from Mustafa Farooq, the CEO of the National Council of Canadian Muslims (NCCM) elaborates
How are Muslims going to recreate Cordoba [Islamic State] in Edmonton, Toronto, Montreal?… One in which we Muslims erase these artificial [nation state} identities, and move together to pursue jannah [Paradise]
We have learned that Islamic leader & Charitable organizations are helping the Muslim community transform Canada into an Islamic country that accepts and implement the word of Allah that was revealed in the Quran and is practiced according to the Islamic Law the Shariah.
Thanks for watching Islam Moving Forward in Canada. See you soon – Good Bye.
Universities, Large corporations, Banks & Religious groups, Toronto City, Queens Park & Ottawa do Fly the Gay Pride flag in celebration of sexual & gender Diversity.
Muslim MPs have publicly endorsed their support for Gay Pride
What is the position of Islam on the issue of Homosexuality? Senior Canadian Imams have made the position clear.
Wael Shihab, Imam of Masjid Toronto, affiliated with the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC):
““Islam forbids homosexuality and lesbianism. Same-sex marriage poses a serious and dangerous threat to human societies and communities. Same-sex marriage endangers family atmosphere where children should be morally raised. Gay relationships pose serious dangers to the family institution. Same-sex marriage, moreover, threatens the existence of human species. Such relationships could not build human communities or secure the existence of humans
Yusuf Badat, President of the Canadian Council of Imams: CCI
“People who identify as transgender or transsexual These individuals need mental treatment and guidance …
Imam Hamza Sodaga “If there’s homosexual men the punishment is one of five things. One cut their head off. Two burne them to death. Three throw them off a cliff. Four tear a wall on them so they die. Five is a combination of the above.
In 2012 Mustafa Farooq CEO of National Council of Canadian Muslims opposed alliances between Muslims & LGBTQ persons comparing them to those who commit major sins such as adulterers & producers of alcohol
Unlike CIJA and other faith groups that have evolved to display the Rainbow Flag it seem that NCCM under the Guidance & leadership of Mustafa Farooq continues to adhere & promote the TRUE Islam.
