While perusing this post over at Jihad Watch – University of Kansas: Muslim Brotherhood-linked Muslim Student Association explains it all for you, we came across a familiar name.
Sabeel Ahmed explained it all to Muslims long ago, and we captured his words. They are in stark contrast to what he will be
lying telling unsuspecting American students this week at KU. Rockchalk Jay-had.
The Muslim Student Association wants to teach others about Muslims and the Islamic faith through its Islam Awareness Week on campus, and will host events throughout the week.
“The purpose is to educate people on Islam and Muslims,” said Iesha Kincaid, president of the Muslim Student Association. “There are a lot of stereotypes and misconceptions out there, so we hope to show what Islam is really about and get rid of some of those stereotypes and misconceptions.”
Kincaid said some of the misconceptions of Islam make people think it is nothing more than terrorism, oppression among women, disliking America and the Prophet Muhammad portrayed as a war lord.
The Muslim Student Association has an informational booth in the Kansas Union lobby every day this week from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Each day will feature a different theme table.
The two main events are The Truth About Controversy lecture by Dr. Sabeel Ahmed on Wednesday at 7 p.m. to 9 p.m. in Woodruff Auditorium of the Kansas Union and the documentary on the life of the Prophet Muhammad on Friday at 4:30 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. in the Big 12 room of the Kansas Union.

MR. SABEEL AHMED is at the final stage of his medical programme in Ross University, New York. He is the Co-chairman of the Da’wa Committee and Board of Director at the Muslim Community Center Masjid (the largest mosque in the Illinois state).
He is also a member of the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) where he is actively involved in the ‘toll free da’wa hotline’ 1-800-662-islam, having first hand experience in handling calls by non-Muslim.
He was a student of Shaykh Ahmed Deedat and his main field of interest is in comparative religion.
…the International Center for the Propagation of Islam, whose founder and Director, Ahmed Deedat, has received funding directly from Osama bin Laden’s family and has boasted about having personally met the al Qaeda leader on several occasions. (source)
Sabeel Ahmed’s website provides intimate insight into his thoughts on dawah, on Christians, and America. Much of his site is spent attempting to refute Indian authors critiques of Islam, but here are some of his thoughts, starting with Islamic dawah in U.S. schools:
We should use every opportunity presented or created to sensitize non-Muslim peers and school staff with Islam and establish an environment in which every where a non-Muslims turn, they notice Islam portrayed in a positive way and get influenced by it and eventually accept Islam with Allah’s guidance, insha Allah.
Sabeel Ahmed, 3 April 1998.
ICNA’s dawah guru on Christmas:
How should Muslims React to Christmas?
Being the custodians of Truth and the ‘Best Ummah created for mankind” and “witnesses unto Mankind”, we Muslims just can’t stay still as the society around us is entrapped by Satan. Enjoining good and forbidding evil should be our theme.
The foremost thing to realize is that Christmas is a big innovation [bidah] which is leading a big part of humanity to shirk (associating partners with God). Christianity has transgressed the limits set by Allah; therefore showing happiness and joy on Christmas, Halloween, Easter, Good Friday is like shaking hands with Satan and telling him to carry on the good work.
Therefore, a Muslim can’t enjoin in any aspect of Christmas in the disguise that Jesus is our Prophet too, we are just honoring him by celebrating Christmas. We should recognize the bidah of Christmas and the Prophet’s warning that all bidah should be rejected. Therefore, accepting Christmas invitations, attending Christmas parties, buying small plastic Christmas trees to please the kids (some Muslims actually do) should be avoided.
By greeting Christians with ‘merry Christmas’ we are legitimizing Christmas, by driving out on Christmas eve to witness the decoration of houses, we are appreciating bidah with our eyes, by placing our kids on the laps of Santa in the malls we are handing them in the hands of a fiend, by closing our Islamic Schools or shops during Christmas we are giving it our silent approval, by selling Christmas items in our shops, we are strengthening the pillars of Kufr.
Indeed Islam came to tear down the pillars of kufr and replace them with the pillars of Islam.
It may be Islamic awareness week on campus, but everyday is Islamic supremacist awareness day at Creeping Sharia and other fine blogs doing what the others refuse to do.
