Muslim hospitals in the U.S.? (updated)

Update: We originally posted this in July 2008. Fast forward two years to July 2010 and the unindicted co-conspirator to a terrorist funding case – ISNA’s – annual conference (taking place on Independence Day weekend).

For those who think the Muslim Brotherhood ISNA conference featuring the most notorious Islamists in the U.S. and from around the world is simply idle chatter amongst moderate Muslims, think again. Last year, the chatter out of ISNA’s convention was ‘Islam on Capitol Hill.’ It became a reality, albeit not the 50,000 Muslims desired, but all sharia right on the lawn of Capitol Hill. Just weeks after 9/11. Do not underestimate the funding and infiltration of Islamists in the United States, and do not be surprised when separate Islamic hospitals become a stark reality in the U.S. We warned you two years ago, and it appears the progress is continuing. /End Update

The seeds are being planted to create Muslim hospitals in the United States.

Now, before all the liberal, love all, see no evil, multi-cultural, diversity is the answer know-it-alls leave comments about how hateful we are – we’ll state it up front. There would be nothing wrong with a Muslim hospital IF it were to function just like any other hospital, and ignore the tenets of Islam that cause so many Muslims to misunderstand their own ideology.

That is to say, all patients would be treated equally in terms of treatment, amenities, respect, finances, employment opportunities, hygiene, etc., regardless of religion. That would also mean the Muslim hospital would provide the same conveniences to non-Muslims that they request and are afforded in ‘non-Muslim’ hospitals. For example, removing any symbol of Islam for patients that are offended by such symbols; serving non-halal food including pork; and turning beds away from Mecca.

It would be hard to argue that if quality health care were provided in a manner that respects U.S. laws and health codes, and treats all patients equally without discriminating that this would be bad. It would certainly be better use of Saudi money than teaching jihad in U.S. schools.

The trouble is – if you read this initial blue print for Muslim hospitals in the U.S. – it sounds like hospital jihad, wreaking of the Islamic supremist ideology. Creating the Ummah here in the U.S., converting existing hospitals into Muslim dominated and run hospitals through pure discrimination. Through a ‘stronger Muslim presence’, and more Muslims owning shares, the hospitals would be forced to hire more Muslim staff and make more Muslim accommodations. Presumably those Muslim doctors would then hire more Muslims, and by default, “in a matter of ten years we could end up taking over already existing hospitals insha’Allah.”

Mission Possible: A Muslim Hospital Can Be Established

By Naseem Sharieff

In the June 6, 2008 issue of the Muslim Link, an article was published titled “Muslim Doctors Abundant But Muslim Hospitals Non-Existent”. Being a Muslim physician with 25 years of experience, I have some ideas on how Muslim doctors can serve this ummah and make a Muslim hospital a reality.


The first step would be to find out how many committed Muslim physicians are in America. If you are only a physician, driven solely by the aim of generating income and establishing yourself professionally, it will not happen. However, if you are a physician committed to serving your Lord and the community at large, then this is the time for us to come together in thinking how to make our lives meaningful in the service of this deen with our professions.

[Isn’t this racial profiling? The exact thing CAIR berated the LAPD, NYPD, FBI, DHS, Mapping Sharia, and others about?]

Deen apart from every day life is not true deen. Prophet Mohammad (peace be upon him) was the best example of it. He was a complete model and he proved it by establishing a living, working community in Medina.

[The complete model, best example – married a six year, consummated with her at nine years old]


Doctors could be classified as:
Physicians who are Committed to the Muslim Community
i. Senior Physicians: . They have many years of experience, are done raising families, and are close to retirement.
ii. Physicians in the Middle of their Careers Life They are in the middle of their careers, tied up by previous financial commitments (ie: office and equipment leases, etc).
iii. New Physicians Coming out: New comers from Medical Schools, in their first two years of practice.
Non Committed Muslim Physicians (self committed)


Those under group “A” would clearly be the ones interested in achieving such high goal for the Ummah in this country.

The Senior Physicians responsibility would be to make a group of Muslim Physicians and start a corporation or a group practice. This group would be core in initiating the establishment of a Muslim hospital since they have the knowledge, experience and have achieved settlement, as well as they no longer carry the heavier load of the responsibility of raising families.

The middle group could be the managed care referral physicians. They could benefit the communities while continuing their regular practices by receiving for example five patients for free who do not have insurances. They could report those patients for tax purposes. They could also refer patients to the community based medical practice (incorporated business). These physicians could gradually work towards transitioning into the corporation, and freeing themselves from the previously established commitments such as office and equipment leases.

The new physicians could join the Company with a complete package of salary, vacation time, CME, insurance … at market match value.


Salah is the pillar of our ibada, worship. But our entire lives should be a form of ibada: in what and how we practice. Thus the same principle of ‘establishing’ can be applied to any ventures we may embark in our lives: our family life, our professions.

Since there is no salah without zakat (no establishing action without purifying such action with gratitude and humbleness); a fund could be created by the corporation with 0.5 percent of all physicians’ zakat money. This fund would be intended to support those community members financially incapable to pay for medical services. Part of such fund could also be used to give scholarships to top students so they can attend medical school in exchange upon graduation of committing to work as either full time employees or interns for the group practice/corporation or the hospital for a number of years. The benefits and ramifications of a fund of this type could be endless.


Having a fully run Muslim Physicians corporation, the practice would already have, from the start, a group of patients to come in right away from the Islamic communities. Their insurance money would come to be recycled into the Muslim practice, which would as well strengthen the local communities. The corporation as well as the hospital would serve both Muslims and non Muslim patients.

Different specialties should join in. The more Muslim doctors come into the hospital, the more patients, the more Muslim practices coming to be established around. The more the presence of Muslim patients, the more Muslim nurses and personnel may be employed.

The doctors from this practice, affiliated with the local hospital would increase the number of Muslim doctors in that hospital, as well as patients. The stronger the Muslim presence in the hospital, the need and facilitation would come by default to make Muslim friendly accommodations. By being a Private entity the Hospital could set its own preferences such as : Proper privacy for women, women/men sections, athan at salah time, halal food would be available in the cafeteria, the hospital could have its own small musallah for prayers. A Muslim Chaplain could be hired.


A Muslim hospital does not have to be built. We do not need to spend money building a hospital. Hospitals are nothing but businesses. If you have a large number of doctors who are Muslims, you can be part of the Board of Directors. We could also have more and more Muslims to be share holders in the hospital corporations.

By buying more and more shares of the existing corporation and by more and more of our physicians becoming part of the board of the hospital, in a matter of ten years we could end up taking over already existing hospitals insha’Allah.


By establishing hospitals we are guarantying the continuity of the Muslim patients care. We would be financially self-sustained and profitable. We would be private, thus capable to make our own choices and decisions. Through the mercy of zakat we would be able to facilitate services to those in need in a multitude of areas and specialties. We would be strengthening the bonds within our communities and with the non-Muslims in the field and patients. We could become by our mere existence as Muslim Physicians a source of dawah by simply applying the manners, professionalism and care that our religion teaches us.

We could gradually establish research initiatives and integrate much needed natural methods of prevention and healing as established by the sunnah of our Prophet (peace be upon him) together with the Western style of Medicine which is mainstream today.

By establishing a hospital, we would be fulfilling a very important principle: Do not take help from others to establish yourself, but establish yourself to serve others.

We just have to rely on Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala and read our history. We need to follow the Prophet’s example on how to establish ourselves and serve others.

It seems difficult only because our mission in life is not understood well. We are not relying on Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala). We are not following our prophet’s way of establishing things. We are more spiritual but not practical and we underestimate our capabilities.

It may be far fetched, but this is only seed for thought. If anyone thinks deeply about it, we’ll see that to establish deen we do not need finances, we need tawaqul in Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala and then unity. We need eman not wealth, Allah Subhanahu wa ta’ala has already given us wealth. The early Muslim generations were not looking for wealth but they were giving it away desperately to build something.

We want lo leave this dunnia to go towards something we have build in our akhirah. We do not want to leave to an akhirah we have destroyed because we have being too busy with this dunnia. As physicians, wouldn’t it be wonderful to leave behind a project or at least the seeds to it that could benefit immensely both our Muslim community as well as the entire American community at large?

If anyone out there would like to join efforts or brainstorm about this dream, please feel free to e-mail me at:

–The author is the director of the Dar-us-Salaam Family Medical Practice located in Greenbelt, Maryland.

The caveat to our comments and to the suggestion that Muslim hospitals could immensely benefit the entire American community at large is – what and when has anything Islamic ever benefited anything but Muslims without putting out some segment of the American community at large?

  2. I wrote earlier that Americans allowed islamisationof their country to happen because they are complacent and lazy. When Americans allow their leaders to falsely and deceptively educate from little children,
    in a supposed era of advanced rationalism and enlightenment, are actually groping around in the darkness of ignorance, misunderstanding and confusion, fatally unaware of the earthshaking catastrophe into which they are being directly plunged. And now islamisation grips you in a vice that perhaps only a Civil War will rout it out. But then, again, maybe.
    You allowed it to happen. So enjoy dhimmitude .

  3. but there wont be any senior doctors to take over those hospitals if they keep blowing themselves up, as they did at the Glasgow airport.
    gonna have to forget the jihad and actually try to do good in this world.

  4. ender ur point is quite a good one..but there z n error in ur observation..the guy who attempted at Glasgow airport was n engineer..his brother was a doctor who was falsely accused..

  5. Mahmoud – not sure where you got your info…maybe you can post a link…

    Bilal Talal Samad Abdullah (born 1980) is the man convicted of conspiracy to murder in connection with the 2007 Glasgow International Airport attack. Dr. Abdullah and the driver of the Jeep Cherokee that was rammed into the terminal and set ablaze, engineer Kafeel Ahmed, who died from third degree burns on 2 August 2007, are believed by police to have been responsible for leaving car bombs in London two days earlier. Dr. Abdullah was the owner of the Jeep[1] and has been charged with conspiracy to cause explosions.[2] He was remanded in custody awaiting trial, and was ultimately given two concurrent life sentences, of which he would be required to serve at least 32 years in prison.[3]

  6. [Isn’t this racial profiling? The exact thing CAIR berated the LAPD, NYPD, FBI, DHS, Mapping Sharia, and others about?]

    Firstly, you are comparing the position by a government organization to that of an individual. CAIR does not respond to the hundreds of paranoid individuals across the country calling for Muslims to be excluded and deprived of their rights as citizens. I don’t follow what CAIR says closely, but I’m quite certain they don’t waist their time responding to the multitude of people calling and cheering an all out war against Muslim countries, but through outright military action for the purpose of plundering their oil and forcing them to accept the western prescription of democracy. So, your criticism of CAIR is unfair and unfounded.
    Secondly, I want to tell what I personally understood from Mr. Nassem Sharieff’s article. I’m actually not that religiously observant, but being a Muslim, I understood the article as a call on Muslim professionals to get involved for the right reasons, and not simply for the purpose of financial gains. Mr. Naseem Sharieff is apparently a devout and religious individual, and he is guided by his religious values and his language reflects that. You have to understand something about Islam to have the right perspective to fairly and accurately judge Mr. Naseem Sharieff’s statements in the article. In Islam, every good deed is a form of worship; Even smiling at people is considered a form of worship and your get “rewarded” for it by God. That is the perspective he is speaking from. He is seeking to connect with those like minded doctors that understand where he is coming from, and won’t misread his statement as you did to be some sort of sinister takeover of hospitals in the coutnry. The intent is to persuade Muslim doctors practicing in the US to devote themselves to this mission of building and running hospitals “religiously”; that is selflessly, and solely for the sake of “pleasing God”.
    Apparently, what Muslims would like to do something like what the Jewish community for example did in this area. It’s a noble thing to do. The law of the land would still apply even if Muslims “take over the hospitals”. They are not saying let’s take the US banks or the federal reserve for example; actually I don’t think that would be a bad idea since there is no interest in the Islamic banking system ;) I wouldn’t mind dumping my current mortgage.

    • First of all, it’s Doctor Sharief, not Mr. and she was referring to creeping sharia. I have heard about this doctor, and she is pro-jihad, as is any Muslim who knows the first thing about their religion; and was not unhappy about 9/11 but saw it as the first real step toward true jihad. Dr. Sharief’s intentions are to islamitize the world, as is the same agenda as her religion.

  7. After two sentences, here is what we personally understood from your protectionist propaganda.

    One – you claim ignorantly or intentionally that Islam is a race. Islam is not a race.

    Your attempt to portray your co-religionists as some down-trodden, victimized racial group is exactly what CAIR and many other Islamist groups do in an attempt to spread Islam.

    Two – you claim you know what CAIR does and doesn’t do but then you claim not to follow their every word. How can you know what they do or don’t do, say or don’t say, if you admit you don’t pay attention to what they say?

    Luckily for the majority of Americans, there are those out there who do pay attention to CAIR’s actions and words. You can start with our post on Frank Wolf – who made a speech on the floor of the Senate exposing CAIR’s terrorist links.


    What Islam Isn’t

    By Dr. Peter Hammond

    The following is adapted from Dr. Peter Hammond’s book: Slavery, Terrorism and Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat:

    Islam is not a religion nor is it a cult. It is a complete system.

    Islam has religious, legal, political, economic and military components. The religious component is a beard for all the other components.

    Islamization occurs when there are sufficient Muslims in a country to agitate for their so-called ‘religious rights.’

    When politically correct and culturally diverse societies agree to ‘the reasonable’ Muslim demands for their ‘religious rights,’ they also get the other components under the table. Here’s how it works (percentages source CIA: The World Fact Book (2007)).

    As long as the Muslim population remains around 1% of any given country they will be regarded as a peace-loving minority and not as a threat to anyone. In fact, they may be featured in articles and films, stereotyped for their colorful uniqueness:

    United States — Muslim 1.0%
    Australia — Muslim 1.5%
    Canada — Muslim 1.9%
    China — Muslim 1%-2%
    Italy — Muslim 1.5%
    Norway — Muslim 1.8%

    At 2% and 3% they begin to proselytize from other ethnic minorities and disaffected groups with major recruiting from the jails and among street gangs:

    Denmark — Muslim 2%
    Germany — Muslim 3.7%
    United Kingdom — Muslim 2.7%
    Spain — Muslim 4%
    Thailand — Muslim 4.6%

    From 5% on they exercise an inordinate influence in proportion to their percentage of the population.

    They will push for the introduction of halal (clean by Islamic standards) food, thereby securing food preparation jobs for Muslims. They will increase pressure on supermarket chai ns to feature it on their shelves — along with threats for failure to comply. ( United States ).

    France — Muslim 8%
    Philippines — Muslim 5%
    Sweden — Muslim 5%
    Switzerland — Muslim 4.3%
    The Netherlands — Muslim 5.5%
    Trinidad &Tobago — Muslim 5.8%

    At this point, they will work to get the ruling government to allow them to rule themselves under Sharia, the Islamic Law. The ultimate goal of Islam is not to convert the world but to establish Sharia law over the entire world.

    When Muslims reach 10% of the population, they will increase lawlessness as a means of complaint about their conditions ( Paris –car-burnings). Any non-Muslim action that offends Islam will result in uprisings and threats (Amsterdam – Mohammed cartoons).

    Guyana — Muslim 10%
    India — Muslim 13.4%
    Israel — Muslim 16%
    Kenya — Muslim 10%
    Russia — Muslim 10-15%

    After reaching 20% expect hair-trigger rioting, jihad militia formations, sporadic killings and church and synagogue burning: Ethiopia — Muslim 32.8%

    At 40% you will find widespread massacres, chronic terror attacks and ongoing militia warfare:

    Bosnia — Muslim 40%
    Chad — Muslim 53.1%
    Lebanon — Muslim 59.7%

    From 60% you may expect unfettered persecution of non-believers and other religions, sporadic ethnic cleansing (genocide), use of Sharia Law as a weapon and Jizya, the tax placed on infidels:

    Albania — Muslim 70%
    Malaysia — Muslim 60.4%
    Qatar — Muslim 77.5%
    Sudan — Muslim 70%

    After 80% expect State run ethnic cleansing and genocide:

    Bangladesh — Muslim 83%
    Egypt — Muslim 90%
    Gaza — Muslim 98.7%
    Indonesia — Muslim 86.1%
    Iran — Muslim 98%
    Iraq — Muslim 97%
    Jordan — Muslim 92%
    Morocco — Muslim 98.7%
    Pakistan — Muslim 97%
    Palestine — Muslim 99%
    Syria — Muslim 90%
    Tajikistan — Muslim 90%
    Turkey — Muslim 99.8%
    United Arab Emirates — Muslim 96%

    100% will usher in the peace of ‘Dar-es-Salaam’ — the Islamic House of Peace — there’s supposed to be peace because everybody is a Muslim:

    Afghanistan — Muslim 100%
    Saudi Arabia — Muslim 100%
    Somalia — Muslim 100%
    Yemen — Muslim 99.9%

    Of course, that’s not the case. To satisfy their blood lust, Muslims then start killing each other for a variety of reasons.

    ‘Before I was nine I had learned the basic canon of Arab life. It was me against my brother; me and my brother against our father; my family against my cousins and the clan; the clan against the tribe; and the tribe against the world and all of us against the infidel.” Leon Uris, ‘The Haj’

    It is good to remember that in many, many countries, such as France, the Muslim populations are centered around ghettos based on their ethnicity. Muslims do not integrate into the community at large. Therefore, they exercise more power than their national average would indicate.

  17. and all of this will take place as the result of a fraction of the 0.08 % of the American population who happen to be doctors and able administrators taking over the whole system. This article was particularly longwinded in order to bore people into not considering the obvious.

If sharia law continues spreading, you'll have less and less freedom of speech - so speak while you can!
