Few Imams and Readers' Comment on Gay-friendly Islamic Leadership

Syed Jawed Anwar Excerpts of two Imams without comment: One of the Imams (locally educated) once said, “Is it not the issue of LGBT like a racial issue (black) of Americas? People were discriminating black in the past. Now it is nation of LGBT (discrimination).”Another Imam: “Homosexuality is a Canadian thing. It has to stay here. We must vote Liberals.”

Syed Jawed Anwar In 2015 parents’ campaign against radical sex-ed curriculum when these Imams came under fierce criticism, they issued a statement on sex-ed curriculum in which they tried to satisfy both government and the community. But they failed. They did not post this statement even to their own website.

Our Gay-friendly Islamic Leadership (3)

Syed Jawed Anwar After resignation of Dalton McGuinty, Liberal Premier of Ontario, the leadership election of Ontario Liberals was held in 2009. The majority of Muslim liberals voted for Kathleen Wynne. There were few candidates in the race who were adherents of traditional family values. All “others” were rejected by “Muslim Liberals”.

A Gay Bible is now available for those who feel the need to have their gay lifestyle justified by Scriptures. Verses condemning homosexuality are now re-written gay friendly scripture. Similarly, things are changing so fast in the “Islamic” leadership that it is not beyond the comprehension that gay-friendly “shariah” might be developed soon.

God, Human Suffering and the Believer

God, Human Suffering and the Believer

By Safi Kaskas HOW do you maintain a sense of faith in a God who claims to be merciful and compassionate, amid the myriad kinds of afflictions, pain, difficulties, setbacks, abuses, losses, and traumas that occur at the individual and collective scales? This question actually assumes that if God’s claims to be merciful and compassionate are true, suffering and disasters should not happen. This assumption actually hides another; that life on earth is an end in itself.

Make the Most of This Ramadhān

By Mawlānā Muhammad Saleem Dhorat hafizahullāh Once again, the best of all months, Ramadhān, is upon the horizon. It is a month in which at least one du'ā is accepted daily from every Muslim, one sunnah/nafl act is equivalent to the reward of one farḍ act, and one fardh act is rewarded seventy times over. From morning to evening and evening to morning, each and every second, Allāh ta'ālā showers His choicest blessings and barakah upon His servants.

The Foundational Characteristics of a Believer in Times of Distress

By Sheikh Mikaeel Olivieri (Abdur Rahman) Almighty Allah has put us in this world for a short amount of time. In our time here, we must quickly assess and examine our situation. By the grace of Almighty Allah, he has guided us to the religion of Islam. Islam has left no stone unturned in showing us, in a very beautiful and simple way, how to live. The biggest test, of course, is dealing with trials and tribulations. Allah, outlining this, says in the Quran:
