North American Muslims issue fatwa
http://www.islamicsupremecouncil.com/iscc-fatwa-against%20terrorism.htm ^ | January 8, 2010 | Islamic Supreme Council of Canada

ISCC affiliated Imams Issue Important Fatwa

Attack on Canada and the United States is Attack on Muslims Over 10 million Muslims Live in North America

Calgary) Twenty Imams affiliated with the Islamic Supreme Council of Canada have issued a Fatwa today declaring the attacks on Canada and the United States by any extremist will be the attack on 10 million Muslims living in North America. This is the first Fatwa by the Muslim clergy declaring attacks on Canada and the United States as attack on Muslims. Following is the text of the Fatwa.

FATWA (religious edict)

In the Name of Allah, the Most Beneficent, the Most Merciful

We, the undersigned Imams, are issuing the following Fatwa in order to guide the Muslims of North America regarding the attacks on Canada and the United States by the terrorists and the extremists. In our view, these attacks are evil and Islam requires from Muslims to stand up against this evil. In the holy Qur’an Almighty Allah orders Muslims,

"Let there among you be a group that summon to all that is beneficial commands what is proper and forbids what is improper; they are the ones who will prosper." (3:104)

"Believing men and believing women are protecting friends of one another; they enjoin what is right and forbid what is wrong; they perform salat and give zakat..." (9:71)

"Those who, if We establish them in the land (with authority), establish regular prayers and practice regular charity and enjoin the right and forbid the wrong..." (22:41)

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said in a Hadith;

"When people see a wrong-doer and do nothing to stop him, they may well be visited by God with a punishment."

Therefore, it is an obligation upon us (Imams) to inform all Muslims around the world that Muslims in Canada and the United States have complete freedom to practice Islam. There is no single city in Canada and the United States where MASAJIDS (Mosques) are not built. In all major cities Islamic schools provide education to Muslim children about Qur’an and the Islamic traditions. Thousands of Muslims perform Hajj every year and travel to Saudi Arabia with complete freedom and respect. In the month of Ramadan, both Canadian and the United States governments recognize the occasion and greet all Muslim citizens. Muslims pray five daily prayers in mosques without any fear or restrictions. Muslims have complete freedom to pay Zakat (poor due) to the charity or a person of their choice. Muslims have complete freedom to celebrate their festivals openly, publicly and Islamically. Muslims enjoy freedom of religion just like Christians, Jews and others. No one stops us from obeying Allah and His Messenger (Peace be upon him). No one stops us from preaching Islam and practicing Islam. In many cases, Muslims have more freedom to practice Islam here in Canada and the United States than many Muslim countries.

In fact, the constitutions of the United States and Canada are very close to the Islamic guiding principles of human rights and freedom. There is no conflict between the Islamic values of freedom and justice and the Canadian /US values of freedom and justice.

Therefore, any attack on Canada and the United States is an attack on the freedom of Canadian and American Muslims. Any attack on Canada and the United States is an attack on thousands of mosques across North America. It is a duty of every Canadian and American Muslim to safeguard Canada and the USA. They must expose any person, Muslim OR non-Muslim, who would cause harm to fellow Canadians OR Americans. We, Canadian and American Muslims, must condemn and stand up against these attacks on Canada and the United States.

May Allah save Canada, the United States and the entire world from the evil of wrong doers. Ameen.

Today, January 8, 2010, Calgary Imams will be available at the Al Madinah Calgary Islamic Centre, 5700 Falsbridge Dr. NE at 2:00 PM to explain the Fatwa and answer any questions. The other Imams will be speaking about this Fatwa in their Friday sermons.

"declaring attacks on Canada and the United States as attack on Muslims"

Let's see, should we be pleased that some imams are coming out against terrorism, or merely disgusted that the rationale, as always, must be about condemning "attacks on Muslims" -- as though THAT is the reason that terror attacks in North America are evil?

But if there were few if any Muslims here and they all lived in a remote part of Saskatchewan, then Muslims blowing up our people, planes, and cities just wouldn't be any big deal????????

Maybe this is really a positive overture by the Islamic Community. I have never seen anything like it before and it looks like a positive step.

There is room for Islam i the west if Islam westernizes itself. Perhaps they are doing just that here.

Time will tell.

“...what do you think is going on here?”

Self preservation. No way do U.S. or Canadian citizens want to live in the Middle East, even Muslim ones, under repressive regimes.

They may want everyone here to be Muslim, but I suspect they do not really want to live in a totalitarian Muslim regime.

I think what they are implying is that America and Canada should be protected against attack by Muslims as Muslims are also a part of the community in both countries - which is true.

This looks like a positive overture and should be accepted as such.

I would be happy to be corrected if I’m wrong, but I don’t remember such a strongly and directly worded fatwa being issued after 9/11; even though that attack destroyed a mosque and killed innocent Muslims.

Well, at least they are saying they are happy here...we are always complaining, and me the first to do it, that never one muslims in US are talking against terrorists - for once they do it so let’s keep an open mind. You know me - I am totally against the islamist invasion but if these guys finally would accept to be American before they are muslims and would defend America first..I guess we have at least to listen - if they really mean it and PROVE it then we have to praise them. What do you think?

It's a start, and certainly better than anything I have seem from any Muslim group to date. The next step would be condemning terrorism simply because it is terrorism. Without that Islam will remain a belligerent ideology to all humanity.

"as Muslims are also a part of the community in both countries - which is true"

you simply re-state my point, which is that only because 10 million Muslims live in N. America is this fatwa being issued..... "don't kill your fellow Muslims" is the message..... and if there were few if any Muslims here well then it would be open season for terrorists according to this idea......

I suppose it is positive in some way, since it is almost unheard of for Muslims to condemn jihad terrorism, but I don't have to appreciate the idea that my family, friends, countrymen are only worthy of protection because otherwise some nearby Muslim(s) might be harmed in the same damnable terror attack.

I don’t think anything in their statement implies they would defend America (or Canada) to any serious extent, but I do agree that it seems like a positive statement which is rarely seen if ever from Imams etc.

On the one hand, Muslim clerics standing up publicly against jihad terrorism is most definitely welcome. On the other, I cannot accept their premise that it’s the presence of Muslims in N. America that makes such attacks evil and appalling.

I agree — this may be a breakthrough, a better late than never. The money quote in the fatwa is:

“It is a duty of every Canadian and American Muslim to safeguard Canada and the USA. They must expose any person, Muslim OR non-Muslim, who would cause harm to fellow Canadians OR Americans.”

This can be the leverage needed by the more responsible parents need to keep their kids from being radicalized by the bad guys.

Yes it’s obviously Taqiyya

The word “Taqiyya” literally means: “Concealing, precaution, guarding.” It is employed in disguising one’s beliefs, intentions, convictions, ideas, feelings, opinions or strategies. In practical terms it is manifested as dissimulation, lying, deceiving, vexing and confounding with the intention of deflecting attention, foiling or pre-emptive blocking. It is currently employed in fending off and neutralising any criticism of Islam or Muslims.

What’s going on?

Perhaps it’s just an example of how long it takes a Muslim to think thing out rationally (nine years); but In not holding my breath. I’m sure the other shoe will drop soon enough.

Now that a fatwa has been issued, that will gain approval, it’s only a matter of time until one is issued that won’t.

It’ll be one we don’t like at all.

These folks are nothing if not fickle when it comes to the West

Consider the objects of this message.

The message is being delivered to Muslims all over the world. Islamic terrorists will be unlikely to respond to a statement that they shouldn’t attack non-Muslims. The Imamas, I believe, are delivering a message in terms that are most likely to effectuate the desired results, i.e. bug off terrorist - you attack them and you attack us.

I could be wrong about this and you could be right. But this is the FIRST time I have heard of a Muslim group condemning terrorism. I hope it isn’t the last.

Exactly. If anyone bothered to finish reading their quotes from the Qur’an in context (what comes before and after each quote,) they would know it.
I would advise anyone reading these quotes to LOOK THEM UP. They are not what they appear to be.

I agree that the ONLY way such a msg can even get heard in most of the Muslim world (although I doubt that any jihad terrorists will care) is with the appeal to protection of fellow Muslims.....

.... yes I’m glad to see any Imams anywhere taking a stand against jihad terrorism..... but I still have to wonder about both motives and effects/outcomes. I don’t trust their motives and I don’t expect it to have any effect on dissuading terrorists. Still, they (the Imams) may as well try!

As will this. They are getting scared of us. They weren’t before. Muslims were killed on 9/11 and they celebrated in the streets of Newark. They think they have been taking us over by stealth...and they have been, so these “attacks” set their progress back as we become more and more suspicious of them. Suspicion is beginning to turn into aversion, and THAT is what they are trying to stop.

Good point -— is it “coincidence” that we see perhaps the 1st-ever such statement from these 20 Imams just when there has been one attack (fortunately thwarted) and apparently serious intel rumors of more..... and the claim that this terrorist told of around 20 more bombers being prepared.....

Maybe all they want is to try to give themselves some measure of protection and deniability if/when there is carnage. I definitely do question their motives....

Never, ever, EVER forget Muslim beliefs from the Qur'an:


Allah is an enemy to unbelievers. - Sura 2:98

On unbelievers is the curse of Allah. - Sura 2:161

Slay them wherever ye find them and drive them out of the places whence they drove you out, for persecution is worse than slaughter. - 2:191

But if they turn renegades, seize them and slay them wherever you find them. - 4:89

When the sacred months are over, slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. - 9:5

Allah has cursed the unbelievers and proposed for them a blazing hell. - 33:60

Unbelievers are enemies of Allah and they will roast in hell. - 41:14

When you meet the unbelievers, smite their necks, then when you have made wide slaughter among them, tie fast the bonds, then set them free, either by grace or ransom, until the war lays down its burdens. - 47:4

(different translation: ) When you meet the unbelievers in the battlefield, strike off their heads, and when you have laid them low, bind your captives firmly.
