Are LGBTQ+ People Viewed as Perverts that deserve Death?

Are LGBTQ+ People Viewed as Perverts that deserve Death?

Linda Sarsour is an American political activist. She was co-chair of the 2017 Women’s March

Do Canadian Imams view LGB as perverts? The answer depends on which Canadian imams you ask. Political considerations also affect the response. Shaikh and Yale PhD. Yasir Qadhi elaborates.

If Muslim politicians misrepresent the stance of Islam on LGBTQ issues but are creating long term benefit for the political agenda of Islam… Nuance of deriving political benefit with strategic temporary political alliance… I strongly disagree with many of her (Linda Sarsour) statements on LGB.  But her presence in that auditorium is a blessing for the Muslim community. It is a great benefit politically having a Muslim mayor, regardless of whether he is good for the city. Complete interview

Canadian Imams use LGBTQ homosexual rights to propel the agenda of Islam and the Muslim community

Canadian Imams, LGBTQ & Homosexuality when mixed in a conversation, usually result in language deemed unacceptable to supporters of progressivism. This language seemingly contradicts the narrative that Islam accepts and tolerates LGBTQ+ or Transgender non-binary persons.

Trade Mark

CCI (Canadian Council of Imams) features on its website seven points in its declaration. We will look at number two of the declaration and seek contextualized clarification in an attempt to dispel misinformation about Islamic teachings on homosexuality, LGBTQ and people that identify as non-binary.

2.  We believe in peaceful coexistence, dialogue, bridge building, and cooperation among all faiths and people for the common good of humanity. Islam does not permit the killing of innocent people, regardless of their creed, ethnicity, race, or nationality. The sanctity of human life overrides the sanctity of religious laws. Islamic rulings do not – and should not – contradict natural laws.

Teachings of the Imams accredited by CCI seem to contradict the second article of CCI’s declaration,

CCI is a Canadian NGO that has regulatory powers to accredit Imams.

Canadian Council of Imams gathers imams from around the country to serve the Muslim community. The Council also acts as an advisor to government agencies on topics related to Muslims and the Islamic community.

  1. To develop policies & practices that enhance understanding of Islam among Muslims & non-Muslims.
  2. To act as an advisor on Islamic matters with various levels of Government.
  3. Has been representing Islam and Muslims locally and internationally in hundreds of events, programs and conferences.
  4. Has been providing training on Islam for Chaplaincy students.

We now learn the Canadian Muslim leadership’s position on LGBTQ, Trans & non-binary, two spirit.

The Islamic Law says that if you’re caught in an act in an Islamic State, you will be executed. If you’ve been seen by four witnesses, etc. Execution. That’s the law.

Wael Shihab, Imam of the mosque Masjid Toronto, affiliated with the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC):

Homosexuality is a sinful act in Islam… we should not associate with them and should not take them as friends… In Islam, changing one’s sex is not permissible if the person (male or female) has ‎complete male or female sex organs… Given the above, it’s my advice for him to return back to his original sex and go through professional counselling and treatment to lead normal happy life.

Yusuf Badat, President of the Canadian Council of Imams:

People who identify as transgender or transsexual are usually people who are born with typical male or female anatomies but feel as though they have been born into the ‘wrong body’. These individuals can gain mental treatment and guidance through counselling and therapy… It is prohibited to have a sex reassignment surgery in Islam.

Abdullah Hakim QuickVice President of the Canadian Council of Imams:

So! He said. What is the position of Islam on homosexuality? They ask me. So newspaper, right? So I said: put my name in the paper. The position is death. And we cannot change Islam.

Imam Syed B. Soharwardy, the founder of Muslims Against Terrorism (MAT) and the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada (ISCC)

According to the teachings of Islam, homosexual behavior is an abnormal behavior and must be cured. Homosexuality is completely forbidden in Islam and it is one of the KABA-IR (big) sins according to Islam.

Canadian Imams LGBTQ Homosexuality

Mustafa Khattabthe imam of the St. Catharines mosque and a member of the Canadian Council of Imams.

Homosexuality is against everything. It is against akhlaq [moral values]. It’s against nature or the way we are created… So, homosexuality is not permissible. The reason the people of Lot PBUH were destroyed in Sodom and Gomorrah, because of this sin, so it is not permissible… In my view, as I said, homosexuality is abnormal. This is not the norm… Personally, I don’t like to be associated with them.

Toronto’s Dundas Square: street preacher

If you are gay, you are cursed because it is disgusting, because you are a man and you are having sex with another man, which is the cause of AIDS… Homosexuality is wrong and a sin and if you are a homosexual, you are cursed…

Syed Muhammad Rizvi’s book Marriage and Moral in Islam

In the Islamic legal system, homosexuality is a punishable crime against the laws of God. In the case of homosexuality between two males, the active partner is to be lashed a hundred times if he is unmarried and killed if he is married; whereas the passive partner is to be killed regardless of his marital status.

Minhaj-Al-Muslim by Abu Bakr Al-Jazairy (purchased at the Islamic Circle of North America’s bookstore in Toronto):

The Hadd [fixed punishment] of homosexuality is stoning to death… The methods of killing them (the two who committed the homosexual act) that have been related from the Companions have differed. From among them, there were those who burned them with fire. Others among them killed them by stoning them with stones.

Ibn ‘Abbas said about them. “The highest building in the village should be sought, then they should be thrown from it upside down (i.e. on their heads). Then they should be stoned after that.

Canadian Imams LGBTQ Homosexuality Conclusion:

Islam does not accept or tolerate homosexuality. When the Muslim community has an opportunity, it will advocate for criminalizing homosexuality. Individual Muslims will openly commit murder and accept the consequences as a sacrifice for Allah. The community will venerate them as heroes .

Canadian Human Right Activist & Observant Muslim calls for Cancelling Pride Month

Canadian Human Right Activist & Observant Muslim calls for Cancelling Pride Month

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

Cancel #PrideMonth

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.

Will NCCM Fly the Pride Flag?

Will NCCM Fly the Pride Flag?

Will NCCM Fly the Pride Flag? Universities, corporations, Banks & Religious groups, Toronto City, Queens Park & Ottawa Fly the Gay Pride flag. In 2020 It seems no Mosque or Muslim organization has the flag on their social media.

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 … 

Hamza Sodagar

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.

View Clip Will Imam Hamza Sodogar Fly the Pride Flag?

In 2012 Mustafa Farooq CEO of National Council of Canadian Muslims opposed alliances between Muslims & LGBTQ persons. He does this because compared them to those who commit major sins such as adulterers & producers of alcohol

CIJA and other faith groups that have evolved to display the Rainbow Flag. However it seem that NCCM under the Guidance & leadership of Mustafa Farooq continues to adhere & promote the TRUE Islam. Islam of the Rashidun 4 rightly guided caliphs. Abu Bakr – Umar – Uthman – Ali

Colorado Imam Karim AbuZaid: LGBTQ’s “Evil” is Influencing & infiltrating Black Lives Matter & Muslim Community

Conclusion

Muslim organizations will refrain from flying the pride flag. Muslims elected to political office will say what needs to be said.
