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 #725: Evendi Latif

Your Daily Muslim #725: Evendi Latif

Banda Aceh, Indonesia’s sharia police chief, Evendi Latif, really hates fun. It’s not his fault, though – his Islamic faith is responsible for his sour attitude. Envious of those whose beliefs don’t prohibit them from enjoying themselves, Latif has used the law as a means to exact revenge on those who don’t ascribe to oppressive […]

Your Daily Muslim #724: Jafar Hussain

Your Daily Muslim #724: Jafar Hussain

Like the nefarious homosexual from Aladdin, Indian Muslim Jafar Hussain is quite the villain. The impoverished man held fast to his Islamic faith, and was reportedly described as devout by those who knew him. When his 4-year-old daughter didn’t cover her head at lunch, Hussain knew he could not allow such an affront to stand. […]

Your Daily Muslim #723: Illiza Saaduddin Djamal (Part 2)

Last time we looked at Banda Aceh, Indonesia mayor Illiza Saaduddin Djamal, she was rounding up punks and putting them in re-education camps. Now, the menacing Muslimah is targeting other groups: gamblers, women who have sex outside of marriage, and Hindus. Recently, 34 people were sentenced to public caning for various offenses, ranging from gambling […]

Your Daily Muslim #721: Ahmad Kutty (Part 2)

Your Daily Muslim #721: Ahmad Kutty (Part 2)

(Part 1) Indian-born Canadian sheikh Ahmad Kutty’s Ask the Scholar site has yielded a fresh crop of seventh-century idiocy. Behold the religion of peace (and an exhaustive list of sexual dos and don’ts that could only come from a deeply repressed Christian Grey type.) Kutty listed the following sexual practices as haram (forbidden) when asked […]

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 […]
