We posted on this mosque before. It’s currently run out of a home converted into a mosque across from a rural county library. Check the Google street map of it. The surrounding area is wide open.
And what they plan to be soon, below.
If you live in the area you may want to attend the meeting this coming Saturday. h/t @CausingFitna
Since we reported on their oath of allegiance to the Koran, they have since wiped the statement from their website. We screen capped before they erased it.
The Qur’an in its scope is the full and final divinely revealed constitution for mankind. It is also the textbook of the Muslim Iman (Faith) and the source book of Islamic laws, rules and regulations for the Muslims.
The Islamic Center of Johnson County, Inc., unequivocally affirms the Qur’an and the Sunnah as its eternal and ultimate constitution.
Narrated Ibn ‘Umar:
Allah’s Apostle said: “I have been ordered (by Allah) to fight against the people until they testify that none has the right to be worshipped but Allah and that Muhammad is Allah’s Apostle, and offer the prayers perfectly and give the obligatory charity, so if they perform that, then they save their lives and property from me except for Islamic laws and then their reckoning (accounts) will be done by Allah.”
Narrated Abu Huraira:
Allah’s Apostle was asked, “What is the best deed?” He replied, “To believe in Allah and His Apostle (Muhammad). The questioner then asked, “What is the next (in goodness)? He replied, “To participate in Jihad (religious fighting) in Allah’s Cause.” The questioner again asked, “What is the next (in goodness)?” He replied, “To perform Hajj (Pilgrim age to Mecca) ‘Mubrur, (which is accepted by Allah and is performed with the intention of seeking Allah’s pleasure only and not to show off and without committing a sin and in accordance with the traditions of the Prophet).”
CBS picked up on the story now: Growing Muslim population looks to build larger gathering place in Johnson County (video here)
A house at 151st Street and Antioch Road in Johnson County that was converted into a prayer room for Muslims has reached its limit.
Directly behind the small house, on the same property, will become a new mosque, at least 97,000 square feet with four components – a gym, a community center, classrooms and the mosque.
It’s expected to be the largest mosque in the Kansas City metro.
There are 15 Islamic centers that serve an estimated 20,000 Muslims in the Kansas City area.
The Islamic Center plans to submit building permits to the city of Overland Park. They said they have received support from neighbors in the area.
Readers are probably unaware of the mega mosque plans and definitely not aware of the information above.
It should also be noted that Arif Ahmad infiltrated the local citizenry before unveiling his mega mosque. He is a citizen advisor to the Overland Park Police Chief for non biased policing.
Update: The mosque leader has plans on converting non-Muslims too: Overland Park Mosque Plans Big Expansion
Ahmad says that, in recent years, the Islamic Center has been fielding a lot of questions from non-Muslims about the religion. He hopes that the new Center can help educate the public about Islam.m
“That actually is a personal dream of mine: Once we have the building next door, the building you’re sitting in – I would convert that into a place which would invite non-Muslims to come and learn about us, just to showcase our religion.”
Earlier this year, members discovered their new building plans were the subject of a couple of articles by an anti-Islamic blog. The blog calls the project a “mega-mosque” and suggests its members are trying to spread fundamentalist Islam. Arif Ahmad considers the accusations ridiculous. He says he doesn’t read the blog, and he encourages other not to either.
“The more you go there, the more you help their cause. You give them more merit when you respond. We’ve taken the attitude of taking the high road, let’s put it this way. And I think when you take the high road, things fall in place, over a period of time.”
Not sure what blog he’s talking about but maybe he’s referring to his own site using Bukhari quotes or stating the Koran is their constitution. He also makes very clear his young members are learning to memorize the Koran. Is that fundamentalist? Is there a non-fundamentalist version of the Koran? Ahmad’s students are memorizing the Koran that contains verses like:
Quran 5:051: “O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.”
