Hot on the heels of the announcement that California has instated a Muslim Appreciation and Recognition Day, an Imam in Wales has told his congregation that war is coming, and according to Islam, it’s okay for them to take women as slaves and rape them.
Ali Hammuda, the Imam at Cardiff’s Al-Manar Mosque in Wales is preaching that what ISIS is doing is legitimized by history. If history truly legitimized barbaric acts, the world would be a lot darker than it is now, though it is already on a decline.
It was at this same mosque, where three Islamic State fighters worshipped before traveling to Syria. They’ve come to be known as “Cardiff jihadis”. Reyaad Khan and Nasser Muthana, both twenty at the time, could be seen in an ISIS recruiting video, where they brag about executing prisoners. Muthana’s younger brother joined them soon after but was killed in RAF drone attacks.
When an undercover reporter infiltrated the mosque, he found book preaching violence, sexism, homophobia and other forms of dark and capital punishment. The Imam justified these acts in her sermons.
In the audio, Imam Hammuda is heard telling a group of young men: “One of the interpretations as to what this means is that towards the end of time there will be many wars like what we are seeing today, and because of these wars women will be taken as captives, as slaves, yeah, women will be taken as slaves.“And then, her master has relations with her because this is permissible in Islam, it’s permissible to have relations with a woman who is your slave or your wife.”He also stated that another interpretation of the Hadith is that children will come to treat their mothers like slaves.He said: “The one I think is strongest is that towards the end of time you will see a lot of Muslims disobeying their mothers and fathers… you see children speaking to their mothers and fathers as if they are your slave.”
More than 5,000 non-Muslim women and girls were abducted by the Islamic State in 2014, and those numbers continue to grow. And how do they justify it? Well, it’s actually written in the Koran.
