Your Daily Muslim #727: Abu Abdillah Ismaeel (Part 2)

Your Daily Muslim #727: Abu Abdillah Ismaeel (Part 2)

Last time we looked at New York imam Abu Abdillah Ismaeel, he was bashing photography, women’s independence, and philosophy. The seventh-century primitive is back with even more madness straight from the bowels of ancient history. Ismaeel was shocked by the idea of gay imams, as most Muslims are because their religion is incredibly homophobic. He […]

Your Daily Muslim #726: Ziaullah Khan

725 wasn’t enough. No promises about starting this up again as a regular thing, but here’s one I couldn’t resist writing up. Halifax, Nova Scotia’s Centre for Islamic Development is causing quite a ruckus. Its leader, imam Ziaullah Khan, isn’t too fond of the hipster brewery/restaurant next door. Instead of accepting those of different lifestyles […]

Your Daily Muslim #722: Ahmed Miklós Kovács

Your Daily Muslim #722: Ahmed Miklós Kovács

Hungarian imam Ahmed Miklós Kovács is yet another in a long line of seventh-century celebrants who envy gays’ superior hygiene and style. His envy is so deep that he tried to accuse gays of being “filthy.” Only with each other, Kovács. And trust me, you aren’t up to any gay man’s standards. During a Friday […]

Your Daily Muslim #720: Hojjat Ramzy

Your Daily Muslim #720: Hojjat Ramzy

Iranian-born sheikh Hojjat Ramzy, who now resides in the UK, has several centuries of catching up to do. Ramzy established the first Islamic school in Oxfordshire to ensure the spread of incivility. When a female convert to Islam (clearly a person of compromised mental faculty) applied for a teaching position at the school, she alleged […]

Your Daily Muslim #711: Ebrahim Desai

Your Daily Muslim #711: Ebrahim Desai

This YDM contains adult subject matter. While most Sufi Muslims are peaceful and relatively progressive by Islamic standards, South African Sufi Islamic cleric Ebrahim Desai is a walking anachronism. Aside from endorsing the Ideal Woman website, which claims premarital love is untrue and calls it a “disease,” his fatwa site is overflowing with 7th-century savagery. […]

Your Daily Muslim #710: Felix Yanwar Siauw

Your Daily Muslim #710: Felix Yanwar Siauw

Indonesian Islamic cleric Felix Yanwar Siauw, who is a convert to Islam, won’t be purchasing a selfie stick anytime soon. Too ugly to have an Instagram, the cleric lashed out at those he’s envious of, using his religion as a cover for deep insecurity about his appearance. In a fatwa posted on Twitter, Siauw condemned […]

Your Daily Muslim #708: Mohammed Siddique

Your Daily Muslim #708: Mohammed Siddique

UK Qur’an instructor Mohammed Siddique enjoys the finer things in life: seventh-century fairytales and beating children. When one of his pupils, a 10-year-old, repeatedly read the Qur’an incorrectly, Siddique could not let such an offense against Islam stand. Siddique and his son, Mohammed Waqar, disciplined the boy. Of course, this wasn’t western discipline, which normally […]
