June 22 2018 was the third anniversary of this event. This article is not about the event but the repercussions on Canadian society.
The National Telegraph posted on July 27 by John Goddard
“Police suppressed details on Danforth shooter’s trip to Pakistan: entire magazine emptied into prone girl.” Post
Many will agree this headline can lead the reader to think this shooting is related to Islam and it was covered up for political objectives.
However others refer to the fact that the mosque on 4 Thorncliff Park Drive that Faisal Hussain and his family attended, some say on a regular basis, was promoting anti Western – anti Jewish – anti Christian sentiments. They point to documentation that congregants in this mosque prayed “Slay them one by one”
CBC reported on Feb 22, 2017 that the same supplication/prayer to kill, recited at The Toronto Majid on Dundas, was not officially authorized by mosque’s senior leadership.
lhamdulillah we’re on the road to Ramadan!
Islamic Relief is pleased to welcome, for the first time in Canada, renowned Qari Sheikh Dr. Mohammed Ibrahim Al-Luhaidan.
Join us on a spiritual journey across Quebec and Ontario at your local masjid — as we welcome the month of Ramadan, come out and listen to a melodic recitation of the Holy Quran that will inspire your heart.
It is reported that this Imam led the congregation in a prayer calling for the killing and destruction of certain people. It must be noted that the time, place or method of killing non believers, Christians or Jews was never discussed
- Canadian Arabic newspaper has recently published a hadith, accounts of sayings attributed directly to Muhammad, that speaks about Muslims killing Jews as part of the final Islamic fight to establish Sharia law and justice in the entire world.
- The same hadith appears in online books on the websites of Canadian Islamic organizations and was recited in sermons and lectures in mosques.
- Canadian imams also recite prayers to Allah to annihilate disbelievers, enemies of Islam.
Some say the Danforth shooter Faisal Hussain acted on Islamic religious teachings that are propagated by these Imams & scholars. But is it reasonable to make or infer a connection with Islam since it is a religion of one and a half billion people?
It is understood as self evident that Islam is not monolithic. There are varied views within the Muslim community’s leadership as to what is the true Islam.
On December of 2018 it is documented
“Oh Allah, turn their children into orphans and their women into widows.”
The following Canadian Islamic leaders help us understand the context that shapes the core tenet of Islam in Canada, consequently influencing members of the Canadian Muslim community.
Imam Abu Bilal Ameenah Philips
“Islam is essentially a moral message. To implement that message it might require weapons. Primary goal of jihad is not to spill blood or acquire people’s land & property. But…”
Imam Shabbir Ally
“Be at war with all people. Once people embrace Islam you stop fighting them… The Quran saying you must stop fighting if they embrace Islam. Hadith saying you must keep fighting them till they embrace Islam. Not leaving that gray area.”
“ISIS manifesto cites Quran, aHadith and rulings of Muslim scholars to justify their position”
