Texas-based AlMaghrib Institute advocates sharia law to students

via AlMaghrib Institute: Sharia for Egypt and the West :: The Investigative Project on Terrorism.

Teachers at Houston-based AlMaghrib Institute have advocated Sharia law to students, both in recent statements about events in Egypt and more generally in the past. The organization has also advocated violence in the cause of Islam.

“When I look at what is happening in the world and you see that people are scared of Islam and Islamists, it makes me ask the question; was Mubarak ruling Egypt with Islam? They were ruling Egypt with secularism that came from the West,” said Vice President and Professor Waleed Basyouni in a recent interview. “Isn’t it the right of people that they live with Islam, their religion and allow it to guide them? The failure of these systems is an excellent example that these secular systems don’t work. It created corrupt dictatorships in these regions.”

Yasir Qadhi, the institute’s dean of academics, said that the tradition from Islam’s prophet could be seen in the events of Egypt and the coming reckoning for inhuman, non-Muslim states.

“For indeed, Allah might give a tyrant some respite, but He never neglects such a person, and when Allah’s reckoning comes, it is swift and just. Tyranny is darkness, as our Prophet salla (Allahu alayhi wa sallam) said, and injustice will never be allowed to go unchecked,” Qadhi said in a statement published last week at MuslimMatters.org.

Qadhi, who denounced Holocaust denial after his own anti-Semitic statements were exposed, has previously taught about the tyranny of secular law. Qadhi is the same AlMaghrib Insitute professor who was cited by CNN for his starring role in the 2008 U.S.-funded Counter-Radicalization Strategy conference by the National Counterterrorism Center.

As part of a TV series named the “Fundamentals of Faith,” which was broadcast on the popular British Muslim TV ‘Islam Channel,’ Qadhi showed his contempt for all other systems of thought besides Islam.

This type of thinking is clear kufr, clear disbelief, to believe that you know better, or any system of government knows better, any democracy, or any… whether it be communism or socialism, any type of philosophy is better than Islam, or it is allowed legitimately, it is allowed to follow this system, this is a profession of the fact that you believe that Allah is not All-Knowledgeable,” Qadhi told TV viewers. “To believe that it is permissible to follow a way of life, to follow a system of laws other than the Shariah, negates one’s testimony of Islam.”

“No supreme court, no system of government, no democracy where they vote. Can you believe it, a group of people coming together and voting, and the majority vote will then be the law of the land? What gives you the right to prohibit something or allow something?” Qadhi said.

Qadhi has been the spotlight before, trying to refute accusations of AlMaghib influence on would-be bomber Umar Farouk Abdulmutallab, who attended several courses put on by the group before trying to blow up a commercial airplane on Christmas Day 2009. CNN interviewed Qadhi without mentioning his stand on political Islam, saying he “has been involved in de-radicalization efforts in the United States.”

  3. Depressing. These advocates of Sharia get everywhere. Unfortunately, here in the UK a firm of solicitors named Emmetts has just launched a Sharia family law service for clients. I’m hoping to get a boycott going and am thus keeping my fingers crossed that the EDL will pick up on the story. Any company that goes out of its way to enable Sharia should be subject to boycott by non-Muslims:

  4. Sweetie, id prefer the judgements & laws of” Mickey Mouse” to your vicious “religious” “law” (sharia) of islam any day. You have nothing to crow about you imbecile.

  5. iSLAM AS A GOVERNMENT IS ABSURD.You cannot have gvernment when the laws and sub-laws are constanly changing;this implies free radicals.IF an Iman issues an edict or rulingand another Iman comes along soon after and issues a different ruling or edict on the same subject ;the most current ruling wins the day!WISHY WASHY!WHATS GOOD ON MONDAY IS BAD ON TUESDAY…….!!!!!!!!!DOON—COUGH

  6. “CNN interviewed Qadhi without mentioning his stand on political Islam, saying he “has been involved in de-radicalization efforts in the United States.”

    So CNN just outright lied? Why isn’t anyone calling them on it?? Why arent they being made to stand in front of the country and answer for their lie?

  7. I have to believe that AIMaghrib institute is a beliver in Islam and therefore promotes tteir belief by recommending shria law. If he really believes it then he is no friend to US Constitutional law and certainly does not practice or believe thet “All men are created equal”

    He believes some people are more equal. Its OK to beat your wife using sharia laws prescribed way.

    We are over-loaded with “sickos” in this country and especially in many of our universities.

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