Your Daily Muslim #508: Mohamed Hassan Hersi

Your Daily Muslim #508: Mohamed Hassan Hersi

Somali Muslim Mohamed Hersi just loves to play the victim. The problem is, he’s a terrible actor who can’t make a convincing case to save his life. Hersi, who lives in Canada, is the latest in a long line of Muslims whose jihadist intentions were brought to light by undercover police officers posing as radical […]

Your Daily Muslim: Naima Rharouity

Your Daily Muslim: Naima Rharouity

Aside from being an oppressive eyesore, the Islamic ninja costume is also a safety hazard. 47-year-old Moroccan Muslimah Naima Rharouity, a resident of Montreal, found that out the hard way. Rharouity was at a metro station and got on an escalator. She didn’t think that choosing to take the escalator would be the last decision […]

Your Daily Muslim: Omar Mahrouk

Your Daily Muslim: Omar Mahrouk

As a general rule, it’s best to keep Muslims away from sharp objects. However, the citizens of Toronto, Ontario (Canadia) weren’t able to prevent Muslim Omar Mahrouk from getting his hands on a pair of scissors and running a barbershop. Now, I know what you’re gonna say – he’s a male hairdresser, so he must […]

Your Daily Muslim: Aaron Yoon

Your Daily Muslim: Aaron Yoon

Korean-Canadian Aaron Yoon didn’t seem like the type to ever be charged with a terror-related offense. The teen had a close group of friends, and was raised Catholic. However, that all changed when one of his friends reached out to him about Islam. Soon, Yoon had started avoiding homework (dispelling racial stereotypes in the process) […]

Your Daily Muslim: Feraidon Mohammad Imbrahem

Your Daily Muslim: Feraidon Mohammad Imbrahem

Afghan-Canadian Muslim Feraidon Mohammad Imbrahem couldn’t take it anymore. The constant questions, the abuse – all because his first name sounded like a Pokemon. Jokes aside, Imbrahem came to Canada from Afghanistan with his wife Nasira (from an arranged marriage), and the couple hoped to start a life together. In Afghanistan, Imbrahem had worked as […]

Your Daily Muslim: Syed Mohammed Zaki Baqri

While many western nations are busy debating whether or not to legalize same-sex marriage, Muslims can’t stop focusing on the kind of marriage most relevant to their seventh-century lives: child marriage. Islamic scholar/cleric Maulana Syed Mohammed Zaki Baqri, Alim of the Council for Islamic Guidance in Ontario, Canada, really has his priorities straight and would […]

Your Daily Muslim: Chiheb Esseghaier

Your Daily Muslim: Chiheb Esseghaier

Tunisian Muslim Chiheb Esseghaier (don’t even try to pronounce it) was up to no good in Montreal, Quebec. Instead of enjoying what the west has to offer like drinking, gambling, and plenty of sexual prospects, Esseghaier decided he was too holy for any of that awesomeness and instead wanted to wage jihad. Esseghaier, a doctoral […]

Your Daily Muslim: Khalil Tabatabai

Your Daily Muslim: Khalil Tabatabai

Some Muslims can’t keep their hands to themselves. In fact, they go so far as to lose their hands entirely, thanks to the sharia law punishment of hand amputation for theft. Canadian Shia Islamic cleric Khalil Tabatabai, an instructor of Islamic law & jurisprudence, is a staunch defender of the barbaric punishment, and advocates its […]
