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 […]

Your Daily Muslim #689: Mohammed Saleem Noori

Indian Islamic cleric Mohammed Saleem Noori probably has a hard time getting laid. His unkempt appearance is only partly to blame for this; his track record on women’s issues is poor at best. Currently working at the Sunni Barelvi Markaz of Dargah Ala Hazrat, Noori consults with his fellow seventh-century regressives before issuing fatwas (religious […]

Your Daily Muslim #687: Nurashikin Salim (Part 3)

(Part 1 on Salim | Part 2 on Salim) Last time I checked in on Singaporean Muslimah Nurashikin Salim, she was explaining how she doesn’t think men should be arrested for rape if the victim was uncovered because the victim was at fault. This time I’m going to discuss her recent comments on homosexuality, as […]

Your Daily Muslim #684: Maria Giulia Sergio

“I can’t wait to die as a martyr.” 27-year-old Italian convert Muslimah Maria Giulia Sergio has (in addition to three first names) the wrong idea of what a good society is. Sergio married an Albanian Muslim, and has since grown in her devotion. Of course, their honeymoon was far from normal – they decided to […]

Your Daily Muslim #683: Sohail Qureshi

Every so often, a celebrity comes out in favor of pseudoscience. However, even Jim Carrey’s recent anti-vax tirade pales in comparison to the bullshit peddled by celebrated Pakistani doctor Sohail Qureshi. A devout Muslim, Qureshi makes sure to focus on faith when performing his healing works at the clinic he owns. As I’m sure you […]

Your Daily Muslim #682: Nurashikin Salim (Part 2)

If you haven’t read part 1 yet, click here. This piece contains some of the most messed-up content on this site. Reader discretion is advised. Singaporean Muslimah Nurashikin Salim, who is July 2015’s Muslim of the Month, is a relic of a long-gone era. Her views are so backward it is difficult to accept her […]

Your Daily Muslim #680: Ubah Ali

Your Daily Muslim #680: Ubah Ali

St. Paul Somali Muslimah Ubah Ali and many of her fellow seventh-century celebrants are the latest group of regressives to push sharia compliance on America’s swimming pools. The raucous horde of Muslimahs got in touch with the St. Paul police department and the local YMCA. Together, they began an early-morning swimming instruction program so they […]

Your Daily Muslim #679: Illiza Saaduddin Djamal

Ramadan is in full swing. During this time of year, Muslims add to their collective irritability by depriving themselves of basic nutrition for most of the day. In Jakarta, selling food between dawn and 4pm during Ramadan is prohibited because it would encourage people to make proper health decisions instead of letting an ancient fairytale […]

Your Daily Muslim #678: Ismahan Isse

Ohio Somali Muslimah Ismahan Isse wanted to become a police officer. There was one problem with that: police officers are required to wear uniforms. Isse realized she would be unable to continue with a law enforcement career if she wore the hijab on duty. She reportedly chose to be uncovered during law enforcement training. Instead […]
