Below is a partial transcript of Imam Younus Kathrada’s sermon given to the Muslim youth of Vancouver in 2021:
At the end of this article is a media inquiry sent to (NCCM) National Council of Canadian Imams and CEO Mustafa Farooq. No response was received.
Yes, it’s Christmas season, so many people ask: why should I not congratulate the people on this occasion? Would you congratulate a fornicator? Would you congratulate a murderer? Obviously not! Would you congratulate a pedophile? Obviously not! So how then can you congratulate people for insulting Allah? When you approve of people insulting Allah, it is a major sin, and it is disbelief.
This teaching that evil is associated with Christians and Christianity is further bolstered in the minds of Muslims in Canada by the senior influential Imam and world scholar, Dr. Abu Ameenah Bilal Phillips, in his sermon:
Church Bells are Satanic – “Prophet obliterated the Cross” View sermon
Bells are the musical instruments of Satan. Bells today have become very common; it’s on our telephone, it’s in our clocks. The bell, which is from Christian culture, Christian tradition, which is ultimately from Satan.
ICNA Canada influences & shapes policy regarding 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 compiled by Imam Sharaf An-Nawawi, a Sunni scholar of the 13th century. This book has been made relevant for today with a modern commentary and is highly revered by the vast majority of Muslim leaders throughout the world:
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. This Hadith strongly refutes the people who distort that Islam preaches defensive war only… Wherever there is ignorance and heresy Muslims are bound to fight such evils and finish them by means of Jihad

September 30, 2021 “Promise of the Hereafter sponsored by Hamas leader in Gaza Yahyah Al-Sinwar and attended by senior officials from Hamas discussed preparations for the administration of the future state of Palestine.
Following are just three resolutions, articles, that resulted from this historically important gathering. complete list
“15. Dealing with Jewish settlers on Palestinian land… distinction in attitude towards: a fighter who must be killed; a [Jew] who is fleeing and can be left alone and a peaceful individual who gives himself up and can be [either] integrated or given time to leave.
“16. Educated Jews in areas of medicine, engineering, should be retained [in Palestine] for some time and should not be allowed to leave.
“18. The minute ‘Israel’ collapses, the interim government’s security apparatuses must put their hands on the data regarding the agents of the occupation in Palestine, in the region and [throughout] the world, and [discover] the names of the recruiters, Jewish and non-Jewish, in the country and abroad. This is invaluable information that must not be lost, [for] using this information we can purge Palestine and the Arab and Islamic homeland of the hypocrite scum that spread corruption in the land. This important information will enable us to pursue the fleeing criminals who massacred our people.
Influential North American Imams, scholars, contextualize and explain the religious edict – duty – extolled upon Muslims when interacting with Jews or Christians. First we explore the seminal document that has defined inter community relations between Muslim and non-Muslim.
After the rapid expansion of the Muslim dominion in the 7th century, Muslims leaders were required to work out a way of dealing with Non-Muslims, who remained in the majority in many areas for centuries. The solution was to develop the notion of the “dhimma“, or “protected person”. The Dhimmis were required to pay an extra tax, but usually they were unmolested.
We shall not manifest our religion publicly nor convert anyone to it. We shall not prevent any of our kin from entering Islam if they wish it.
We shall show respect toward the Muslims, and we shall rise from our seats when they wish to sit.
We shall clip the fronts of our heads.
We shall always dress in the same way wherever we may be, and we shall bind the zunnar round our waists.
We shall not mount on saddles.
The following, highly respected, influential North American Imams and scholars explain in a simple straightforward easy to understand manner the religious edict – duty – extolled upon Muslims when interacting with Jews or Christians.

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.

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.
