Your Daily Muslim #707: Mashhoor bin Hassan ibn Mahmood al-Salman

Your Daily Muslim #707: Mashhoor bin Hassan ibn Mahmood al-Salman

Islam permits its followers to keep sex slaves captured in battle, as evidenced by Qur. 23:5-6, 4:24, and 33:50, among others. Palestinian-Jordanian cleric/author Mashhoor bin Hassan ibn Mahmood al-Salman is a big fan of sex slavery, likely because no free woman would ever touch his hideous creep ass. During a live fatwa broadcast, a viewer […]

Your Daily Muslim #706: Ghulam Ali Naeem Abadi

Iranian cleric Ayatollah Ghulam Ali Naeem Abadi, who represents Iran’s Supreme Leader in Hormozgan province, put his foot in his mouth recently. How?

Your Daily Muslim #703: Abdurrazaq bin Abdul Mohsin bin Hamd bin Abdul Mohsin bin Abdullah bin Hamd bin Uthman al-Abbad al-Badr

Today’s YDM is about a fatwa from Saudi sheikh Abdurrazaq bin TL;DR al-Badr. Let’s play a game: what normal thing does this fatwa condemn? If you guessed smartphones, you’d be correct. al-Badr blames smartphones for an alleged decline in the amount of respect shown for the sanctity of the masjid (mosque.) He asserts that people […]

Malay Islamic cleric/scholar Harussani bin Haji Zakaria has some seriously messed-up beliefs. Sure, that makes him just like every other person featured on this site, but this one’s pretty special. He’s even gone so far as to forbid Muslims from performing certain dances. “If a Muslim who is fasting sees a woman’s awrah then it’ll […]

Ghana’s National Deputy Chief Imam, sheikh Kamel Mohammed, recently caused controversy when he shared his thoughts on same-sex marriage. Insecure in his own marriage, Mohammed believed allowing gays would have drastic societal consequences. Because marriages somehow affect people other than the parties involved. Mohammed advised Ghana’s president to avoid legalizing same-sex marriage. He called it […]

Your Daily Muslim #692: Fawaz Jneid

Your Daily Muslim #692: Fawaz Jneid

Lebanese-born sheikh Fawaz Jneid is the imam of a mosque in The Hague, Netherlands. Instead of being tolerant like most Dutch people, Jneid is the spitting image of the 7th century. His savage beliefs have landed him in hot water over the years and he doesn’t appear fazed by any of the criticisms he has […]
