Approximately a year ago in my “Muslims on the run” series, I questioned the President of California’s Zaytuna College, Sheikh Hamza Yusuf. I did so after he mentioned bringing “beauty” back into this world. I had asked him to explain how child marriage, rape of prisoners of war, plundering (Sura 8), and lying, all of which Islam allows, are “beautiful”.
At that point he had two choices, either step into a debate with me. Or get on his carpet and fly away. He choose the latter.
Making my rounds the other day I had noticed that the Sheikh had taken it one step further, and “blocked” me on Twitter.
Over 70K followers and he cannot even respond to simple questions. Quite the “leader”….
To make matters worse, Hamza went on to continue to show his true ugly colors.
As pointed out by North American Infidel’s (NAI) Chairperson Tommy Hunt, Hamza stated that everything that is permitted in Islam is for the good.
Hamza also promotes the Forty Hadith of Imam al- Nawawi.
Once again, we will see into the dangerous mind of Hamza Yusuf:
An Nawawi Hadith Number 014 : Narrated By Abdullah bin Masud
Nawawi’s Forty Hadith
The messenger of Allah said : “The blood of a Muslim may not be legally spilt other than in one of three [instances] : the married person who commits adultery; a life for a life; and one who forsakes his religion and abandons the community.”
Related by Bukhari and Muslim.
So the Sheikh who is free to use the freedoms of America, is all for the death penalty for apostasy, and adultery. This is the “beauty” of Islam.
Translation of Sahih Bukhari, Book 84:
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.'”
Translation of Sahih Muslim, Book 17:
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.
Yes sickos, don’t forget to lash them before the stoning….
Hamza Yusuf, no friend of America or freedom. (I am not implying adultery is freedom, but it certainly should not be a death sentence.)
