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 #711: Ebrahim Desai

Your Daily Muslim #711: Ebrahim Desai

This YDM contains adult subject matter. While most Sufi Muslims are peaceful and relatively progressive by Islamic standards, South African Sufi Islamic cleric Ebrahim Desai is a walking anachronism. Aside from endorsing the Ideal Woman website, which claims premarital love is untrue and calls it a “disease,” his fatwa site is overflowing with 7th-century savagery. […]

Your Daily Muslim #704: Hashim Hussain

Teenage UK Muslim Hashim Hussain, who frequently discusses the end of the world on Facebook, had some unkind words when interacting with counterjihadists. After misunderstanding a question and outing himself as a homophobe, he dug a hole now far too deep to ever get out of. “And it’s the only punishment that will make people […]

Your Daily Muslim #697: Harussani bin Haji Zakaria

Your Daily Muslim #697: Harussani bin Haji Zakaria

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 […]

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 […]

Your Daily Muslim #686: Ali Samoja

Your Daily Muslim #686: Ali Samoja

Kenyan sheikh Ali Samoja wanted to follow in the footsteps of his prophet, pigs be upon him. As we know all too well, that entails sexually exploiting minors. Samoja was instructing a 15-year-old girl in religious matters, including but not limited to when she should be lashed vs. killed for adultery according to the Qur’an. […]
