Your Daily Muslim #669: Mohamed Hafiz Mohamed Nordin

Civil liberties lawyer Eric Paulsen was arrested in Malaysia for accusing the Department of Islamic Development, which has previously been featured on YDM, of fomenting extremism. Instead of examining the obvious validity of Paulsen’s assertion, Malay Muslim Mohamed Hafiz Mohamed Nordin, who heads the JMPP Islamic group, supported the arrest. As we’re all too aware, […]

Your Daily Muslim #668: Hasanuddin AF

It’s been a while since I put a “death to gays” Muslim on here. Of course, the religion of peace has given me no shortage of candidates to choose from. This idiot from Indonesia really stood out. Enjoy! Hasanuddin AF, the head of Indonesia’s leading Islamic clerical organization, recently issued a fatwa advocating for gays […]

Your Daily Muslim #663: Ahmad Faisol bin Haji Omar

Your Daily Muslim #663: Ahmad Faisol bin Haji Omar

Islam is notorious for its austerity. Now, Muslims are being forced to pray – specifically, they’re under threat of legal punishment for failing to! Yep, you read that right: Muslims in Kedah, Malaysia will face up to a 6-month jail sentence or an RM1,000 fine for missing Friday (Jumuah) prayers three times in a row. […]

Your Daily Muslim #656: Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky

Your Daily Muslim #656: Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky

Today’s daily Muslim is a prominent Nigerian Shia cleric, sheikh Ibrahim Yaqoub al-Zakzaky. al-Zakzaky is the head of the Islamic Movement of Nigeria. Of course, instead of using his position to build bridges, he spends his time spouting absurd conspiracy theories and finding numerous other ways to show the world how full of Shiite he […]

Your Daily Muslim #628: Abdullah Zaik Abdul Rahman

Your Daily Muslim #628: Abdullah Zaik Abdul Rahman

Well, it’s Halloween, so I figured it’d be fitting to feature a Halloween-related fatwa (Islamic edict) on YDM. Meet Malay Islamic scholar Ustaz Abdullah Zaik Abdul Rahman, president of the Islamist group ISMA, a man who seeks to drive Malaysia back into the 7th century through fearmongering, blatant lying, and utter lunacy. When Malaysia’s National […]

Your Daily Muslim #627: Muhammad Mustafa al-Jibaly

Your Daily Muslim #627: Muhammad Mustafa al-Jibaly

“How terrible it would be for a person whom Allah has favored with Islam to find himself resurrected on the Day of Judgment among non-Muslims – simply because he liked to imitate them.” Seventh-century regressive Dr. Muhammad Mustafa al-Jibaly is a noted Muslim author and former president of the al-Qur’an was-Sunnah Society of North America, […]

Your Daily Muslim #624: Mohammad Kazim bin Elias

Your Daily Muslim #624: Mohammad Kazim bin Elias

Another day, another YDM named Mohammad… it never gets old. Malay Islamic scholar/preacher Mohammad Kazim bin Elias generated controversy recently after his condemnation of a (wait for it) dog-petting event. Islam views dogs as being nejis (ritually unclean), and Muhammad himself, pigs be upon him, called for the slaughter of canines. Apparently being cute and […]

Your Daily Muslim #614: Khalid al-Ghamdi

Your Daily Muslim #614: Khalid al-Ghamdi

Recently, a group of al-Houthi Shia Muslims protested against the Yemeni government. Since Shiites are viewed as kuffar (infidels) by many Sunnis, including al Qaeda militants, there is considerable backlash against them in majority-Sunni areas. The protest began peacefully but was interrupted by an al Qaeda jihadist carrying out a martyrdom operation. Even around other […]

Your Daily Muslim #612: Fazlul Haque Amini

Your Daily Muslim #612: Fazlul Haque Amini

You know your life amounted to nothing when your Wikipedia entry lists your most notable idea as being the implementation of sharia. In other words, Bangladeshi Islamic scholar/politician Fazlul Haque Amini (not to be confused with Fazlul Haque), didn’t give the world anything of worth before his passing in 2012. However he tried his damnedest […]
