CAIR director tells Muslims jihad is a “noble cause”

via CAIRing for Jihad :: Hudson New York.

Hussam Ayloush, the Executive Director of the Council on American-Islamic Relations, Los Angeles – one of CAIR’s largest and most important local chapters — claims the term “jihad” means something positive and noble. However, the organization he represents, CAIR, and the company he keeps belie the notion that Ayloush is being less than forthright in his interpretation.

On April 8, 2011, Ayloush found himself giving a khutbah [sermon] entitled, “Understanding and Defending ‘The Shariah,'” at the Islamic Institute of Orange County (IIOC). Shariah is the set of religion-based legal rulings originally set out in the Koran and the life of Muhammed {Hadith] and interpreted and enforced by Islamic courts. Shariah – meaning “The Path,” or “The “Way” — deals with everything from crime and politics to economics and sexuality. Shariah law includes such acts as the cutting off of limbs, crucifixion, mutilation, the stoning of individuals, and the death sentence for (even alleged) adultery, death for criticizing the Prophet Muhammed, and death for leaving the religion. It also values a woman as worth half a man in court, and advocates wife-beating.

In the speech, Ayloush stated, “The word jihad now is so demonized that even Muslims are afraid to link to such a noble cause. Striving for justice, striving for the goodness of mankind, striving for good – that’s what jihad is.” Jihad means to struggle, within oneself or against others. Often the term refers to “holy war” against non-believers or non-Muslims.

According to the U.S. Justice Department, however, CAIR has had significant associations with the terrorist group Hamas. Not only was CAIR founded under the leadership of Hamas leader Mousa Abu Marzook, it was also found guilty by US Courts of funding Hamas through its U.S. arm, The Holy Land Foundation for Relief and Development [HLF]. In November 2008, five of HLF’s top officials – and HLF, itself – were found guilty of funneling millions of dollars to Hamas.

Is he telling Muslims not to be afraid to link to jihad? Read it all.

Remember, Jihad is The Highest Peak of Islam:

Jihad an-Nafs

Some have attempted to justify their stance on this concept with what is apparently intended as a daleel (Islamic evidence), and so have used a narration to justify this concept of Jihad an-Nafs or dealing with all the political and military problems we face by becoming introspective or looking inwardly as opposed to looking at the Ahkam Shari’ah and seeing what Allah (Subhanahu Wa ta’ala) has demanded from us.

So they use what they claim is a hadith, or saying of Muhammad (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam), “We have returned from the lesser Jihad to the greater Jihad, that is the struggle against the evil of oneself.” This is in fact a fabrication and is known as Mawdu’ (spurious). Hafidh al Iraqi and Ibn Hajar al Asqalani, who were hadith masters and muhaditheen, who memorised one hundred thousand hadith by Isnad and were qualified to scrutinise hadith and their authenticity, stated that this was not a saying of the Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) but was in fact a statement that was made by someone in the later generation named Ibrahim ibn Abi Yabla. Hence, this is not considered an evidence in the Islamic Shari’ah.

To elaborate further, it is in contradiction with the subject matter of Jihad that has been elaborated in over a hundred ayat of the Qur’an that have come with the meaning of Jihad being Qitaal, which means to slay or to kill or to fight. This was how the Prophet (Sallallahu Sallallahu “>Alaihi Wasallam) and the Sahabah (ra) understood it. To give an example from the Seerah that was narrated by Ibn Majah with a source in Bukhari, woman came to the Prophet (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) and asked “O Messenger of Allah! Is Jihad obliged upon the women?” To which he responded, “Yes, a Jihad without Qitaal (fighting), it is the Hajj and the Umrah!”

This clearly demonstrates that Jihad is Qitaal i.e. Jihad is undertaking the physical fighting and this is how it was understood by the woman and the Prophet (Sallallahu Sallallahu “>Alaihi Wasallam), as explained in the Prophet’s (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) answer i.e. Jihad in Islam means fighting. The Messenger of Allah (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) did not respond by saying that there was the greater Jihad for everyone i.e. Jihad against oneself! Rather he informed her that Allah had prescribed the Hajj and the Umrah for her and that she would get the reward of the Mujahid for undertaking this action, as explained by Imam Sanani in his explanation in the book Sub us Salam.

  1. The CAIR director is an asshole pure and simple, wait I was wrong the asshole serves a usefull purpose. CAIR should not even exist. Separation of church and state. There is no CACR (christian) CAAR(atheist) CAHR,(hindu) Or CA_R anything else..

  2. Mythbusters proved you can polish a turd. But even polished to look nice, it is still a turd. The only time a PR group is needed is when your client screws up. This is no different. These Muslims trying to force Islam and Sharia Law down peoples lives need a PR group to make everything seem like it is Ok when any idiot can see the hate and lack of human rights they are trying to peddle. They can claim they are praticing the “Religion of Peace” but every stabbing, stoning, and terrorist attack in the name of Islam just shows the world their true colors. The Koran is a war manual plain and simple.
    I go to a different library.

  3. These MUSLIM BASTARD LEADERS HERE IN THE U S A NEED TO BE ARRESTED AND CHARGED WITH SEDITION. Then if convicted, HANG THEM HIGH for all to see. Lets do it up right like they did in the OLD WEST. Bring a LUNCH and ENJOY A VICTORYUS EVENT as they SWING singing BRING IN THE SHEEVES. Sounds good to me!!!

  4. Too bad their meanings of words like, “good”, “justice” and “freedom” aren’t the same as our usual meanings for the words. To put it another way, Islamic-style “freedom” is freedom from unbelief ( “Khufr”) in Islam.
    That’s where they trip up and seduce the less intelligent & the less islamo-educated amongst us. Don’t be fooled.

    I await the day CAIR (named an unindicted co-conspirator in a Hamas-funding conviction, banned by the FBI, and with many of its leaders in jail or deported on terror-related charges and a proponent for sharia law in the USA) is kicked out of America and all it’s lackeys jailed for sedition.

    “In short, CAIR wants the ability to spew lies, while denying others from speaking the truth. That’s all any American needs to know about CAIR.”-Raymond Ibrahim

    • ABSOLUTELY. Jihad works both ways. Crusades from the west, dharmayuddha from the east. 5 billion infidels against 1 billion muslims. Let the games begin.
      We will win this world war III

  5. Obama & his Justice Department Lackey Eric Holder are running advance men for CAIR & The Muslim Brotherhood at every turn.

  6. Islam says the only safe way to Allah is jihad. This religion wants us dead. They use young boys as bombs and promise them virgins after death.

    Politically corrects are just as evil, supporting these devils.

    Ron Paul as president will begin cleaning this den of vipers up.

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