In my continued effort to expose what Mosques in America are teaching and supporting, I recently obtained the literature that the Masjid Al-Mamoor of Jamaica Queens is handing out. Today we will analyze it.
The first piece is an advertisement for a NYC conference in which fiqh (the knowledge and understanding of Islamic Law), in regards to death and inheritance is being taught.
The event was sponsored by the AlMaghrib Institute.
About AlMaghrib Institute
We started up in 2002 with a simple question – how could we teach you Islam in a way that was fun, social, spiritual, and oh yeah, academic? We asked around, and it turned out people wanted teachers who knew their stuff, but didn’t turn learning Islam into a snoozefest, and they didn’t want endless weeks of lectures.
We listened, and built AlMaghrib around engaging instructors, double- and single-weekend seminars, and professional multimedia materials. Since that time, you’ve responded in large numbers, asking us to establish chapters (also known as Qabeelahs) in cities worldwide, and we’ve taught Islamic Sciences to over 33,000 students who just can’t get enough.
Now we will take a closer look at what they are teaching 10’s of thousands Muslims.
AlMaghrib Institute offers a unique Bachelor’s Program attained through single- and double-weekend seminars. AlMaghrib also offers students the opportunity to attain individual certificates in the following departments:
AlMaghrib Institute Departments
Department of Islamic Theology and Ethics.
Department of Islamic Law and Legal Theory.
Department of Qur’ānic and Ḥadīth Sciences.
Department of Islamic History and Homiletics.
1. Islamic Theology and Ethics
Code Name Description
ADB 101 Islamic Ethics
(Rules of Engagement)
The concept of ethics in Islam and the character of a Muslim. (Double weekend)
According to the Koran the character of a Muslim is to immulate the actions of Mohammad.
Koran verse 033.021
YUSUFALI: Ye have indeed in the Messenger of Allah a beautiful pattern (of conduct) for any one whose hope is in Allah and the Final Day, and who engages much in the Praise of Allah.
One of the most obvious characteristics of Mohammad was that he was hellbent on dominating Jews and Christians.
Bukhari Hadith Volume 1, Book 2, Number 25:
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.”
Muslim Hadith Book 019, Number 4366:
It has been narrated by ‘Umar b. al-Khattib that he heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say: I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim.
Even on his deathbed Mohammad hated the Jews and Christians.
Bukhari Hadith Volume 1, Book 8, Number 427:
Narrated ‘Aisha and ‘Abdullah bin ‘Abbas:
When the last moment of the life of Allah’s Apostle came he started putting his ‘Khamisa’ on his face and when he felt hot and short of breath he took it off his face and said, “May Allah curse the Jews and Christians for they built the places of worship at the graves of their Prophets.” The Prophet was warning (Muslims) of what those had done.
Considering most of our of country’s populace identifies themselves as Christians and Jews, these teachings should raise a red flag!
2. Islamic Law and Legal Theory
Legal Theory (Usūl’l-Fiqh)
USL 201 Islamic Legal Theory I
(Code of Scholars)
A study of Islamic rulings and their sources, and an introduction to the science of Islamic Legal Theory. (Double weekend)
Even a quick study shows us that Islamic Law clearly calls for the dominance of non-Muslims. The following aspects that I state about Islamic Law are from the Reliance of the “Traveller, A Classic Manual of Islamic Sacred Law”. The book has the stamp of approval of Egypt’s Al Azhar, the world’s highest learning Islamic school.
JUSTICE CHAPTER: NON-MUSLIM SUBJECTS OF THE ISLAMIC STATE (AHL AL-DHIMMA)
o11.1 A formal agreement of protection is made with citizens who are:
o11.3 Such an agreement is only valid when the subject peoples:
(a) follow the rules of Islam (o11.5) (A: those mentioned below (o11.5) and those involving public behavior and dress, though in acts of worship and
their private lives, the subject communities have their own laws, judges, and courts, enforcing the rules of their own religion among themselves);
(b) and pay the non-Muslim poll tax (jizya)
For those new to the subject “jizya” is basically a mafia style extortion, in exchange for second class citizenship. Here are some of the “rights” Jews and Christians have under Islamic Law.
THE NON-MUSLIM POLL TAX
(5) may not build higher than or as high as the Muslims’ buildings, though if they acquire a tall house, it is not razed;
(6) are forbidden to openly display wine or pork (A: to ring church bells or display crosses,) recite the Torah or Evangel aloud, or make public display of their funerals and feastdays;
(7) and are forbidden to build new churches
If the rules are not followed, the penatly can be death or slavery. How American.

Finally we will take a look at some of the teachings of the ahadith. For those who are new to the subject the ahadith are the words and deeds of Mohammad.
3. Qur’ānic and Ḥadīth Sciences
Hadith Sciences (‘Ulūm’l-Ḥadīth)
SNH 202 Ṣaḥīḥ al-Bukhāri
A close study and analysis of selections from the most authentic book ever authored by man: Ṣaḥīḥ’l-Bukhāri. (Double weekend)
SNH 203 Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim A close study and analysis of selections from the second most authentic book of ḥadīth in existence: Ṣaḥīḥ Muslim. (Double weekend)
Besides the verses from the ahadith that have been quoted above, we will take a look at a few more.
Dealing with Apostates
Volume 9, Book 84, Number 57:
Some Zanadiqa (atheists) were brought to ‘Ali and he burnt them. The news of this event, reached Ibn ‘Abbas who said, “If I had been in his place, I would not have burnt them, as Allah’s Apostle forbade it, saying, ‘Do not punish anybody with Allah’s punishment (fire).’ I would have killed them according to the statement of Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'”
Such freedom of choice…
The Book Pertaining to Punishments Prescribed by Islam (Kitab Al-Hudud)
Chapter 3: PRESCRIBED PUNISHMENT FOR AN ADULTERER AND AN ADULTERESS
Book 017, Number 4191:
‘Ubada b. as-Samit reported: Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: Receive (teaching) from me, receive (teaching) from me. Allah has ordained a way for those (women). When an unmarried male commits adultery with an unmarried female (they should receive) one hundred lashes and banishment for one year. And in case of married male committing adultery with a married female, they shall receive one hundred lashes and be stoned to death.
Maybe it’s just me, but those punishments seem at bit harsh.
Part III coming soon.
