Thoughts on The Study Quran - Suhaib Webb

I was contacted by some sincere friends to share my thoughts on recent concerns regarding the Study Qur'an.

When I received my copy a few weeks ago, I began reading it from the beginning, taking notes about concerns I had with the translation and the commentary. At that time, I was not aware of some of the commentary that has been brought to my attention over the last two days. Moving forward, it is important to note that the only valid path to God is through our beloved Prophet (sa) and there is no place for perennialism in orthodoxy.

As I continue to read the text I will make note of my concerns and share them with the editors and eventually the public. I'm concerned about certain positions taken in the text and encourage those who have it to read it with a local scholar, using them to clarify any concerns. Let me add that this is the first edition. The translation of Yusuf Ali has gone through a number of editions and is still lauded till this day. My over all experience with this edition has been a positive one and I'm hopeful that further editions will continue in that direction. There is no questioning the amount of work and effort that went into this monumental task. I know for a fact that some of the editors went through tremendous sacrifice to render what lies before us now. May Allah reward them and help us to improve their efforts.

Finally, I encourage us to engage each other instead of launching attacks in front of the masses. That does not undermine the severity of the concerns, but ensures the sanctity of the community and protects parties from questioning intentions, slander and ego. I will be sharing my thoughts with the writers of the text as I continue my reading through it and with my students as we read it. In short: give it time, offer your concerns to the writers, but avoid accusations and destructive approaches that may do more harm than good. Trust me; I've made those mistakes in the past.

Quilliam Foundation and Maajid Nawaz Please Take Note of Jonathan AC Brown

To British Muslims it concerns: if you were stupid or gullible enough to fall for HT or some other "extremist" group's nonsense at some point in your adult life, this is not an indication of good judgment on your part regarding matters of religion. Get on with things, but spare us your "insights" on things Islamic. It's like the "I used to be anti-Semitic but now let me tell you xyz..." Really, you used to hate a whole race of people? But now you want to tell me a thing or two? {From Dr Brown's FB}

Christian Girls Asked To Be More Like Muslim Girls By A Christian School!

This is one for the Islamophobes and the anti-Muslim Christian bigots to think about. A Christian school is asking the girls at the school to dress more modestly according to a Raw Story report:

A new policy at a British Christian school is requiring girls to cover their legs with “opaque tights” and long skirts as a safety measure against sexual assault.

The Hartlepool Mail reported that parents of students at St. Hild’s Church of England School had received a letter informing them of the new policy.

The letter says that “in the interest of modesty and to ensure your child is properly safeguarded on their way to and from school, we ask that black tights be worn with skirts at all times”.

Islam in Scotland

A GROWING number of Scots are converting to Islam - with the majority young women.

Glasgow Central Mosque alone is now seeing more than 200 Scots a year 'revert'. Due to the rising number of Scots finding Islam, mosques across the country are also setting up support groups for new 'reverts'. Many are fearful of abuse and intimidation.

Reversion is the preferred term within Islam for those who 'convert' - as Muslims believe everyone is born believing in Allah.

The Sunday Herald spoke to Hannah, a 25-year-old administrator from Glasgow who recently “reverted”. Hannah asked for her surname to be kept confidential. Though brought up without any particular faith, Hannah is one of a growing number of Scots who are turning to Islam despite what many see as a “demonisation” of the religion.

“I’d done a degree in comparative religion and had to analyse all the religious texts,” said Hannah. “I went away from that thinking that maybe I should be a Christian.

“But a few months later, while meditating, I found myself pulled in the direction of Islam. After that I started reading again, but this time in a more emotional way. I found I preferred the simplicity of Islam.”

Bulgarian Professor Converts to Islam

Prof. Dr Stefan Teofanov has converted to Islam after translating the Quran into the Bulgarian language.

Bulgarian professor converts to Islam

A Classical Arabic Studies lecturer has converted to Islam after studying and translating the Holy Quran to the Bulgarian language.

Prof. Dr Svetan Teofanov, works in the Department of Classic Arabic Literature at the Sofia University, giving lectures in Koran and Quranic exegesis. He has until now several published books as well as publishing as a Quran interpretation. Prof. Teofanov has finished his specialisation doctorate at the Oxford Centre for Islamic Studies as well as second doctorate at the Moscow Oriental Studies Institute.

As part of the specialisation work, Dr Teofanov said, "Many yeears ago, on the request of the state-owned publishing house, I began to translate the Holy Koran. This was the socialist period. Rather it being service to the Muslims, this was more concerned with assimilation policies in regards to Turkey. Shortly after the work began there was the democratic transition in 1989, the state publishing house went bankrupt, the Bulgarian translation of the Holy Quran was not published in that year. However, I continued to work on the translation of the Holy Koran and this is where my life changed. I began to better understand our exalted book and wanted it from my heart. "

Islamophobic Hate Crimes After ISIS Paris Attack

From Mostafa Higazi's FB:

Brothers and sisters, ‪#‎Islamophobia‬ is on the rise and higher than ever. This is a great time for giving Dawah by educating people about Islam and helping to clear misconceptions. But just as important, safeguard your family and property from any danger and if you sense any threat towards yourself or any Muslim, contact your local authorities.

Here are a few known recent attacks and threats against Muslims in the West:

1) Man in Montreal publishes a video on YouTube and threatens the death of one Arab per week in the province:

2) Muslim woman in Toronto was attacked when picking up her two children from school. She was punched and robbed by the two suspects and called a "terrorist".

3) A Mosque in Texas was vandalized and pages of the Qur'an were found torn and covered in feces in front of the entrance of the mosque.

4) Threatening voicemails were left at a Mosque in Florida threatening to firebomb the mosque and shoot anyone in sight whether they are 2 years old or 100 years old.

5) A young French Muslim woman, who was wearing a veil, was punched and slashed with a box-cutter as she left a metro station in Marseille, in the south of France, by a person who made comments about her religious dress:

Alhamdulilah some of these suspects were caught and are currently facing criminal charges. Please play a role by educating your community about Islam. Also help to protect the Muslims in your community and keep an eye out for threats against Muslims.

Wassim Doureihi on ISIS

Let’s start an honest conversation.

If Muslims were going to tear apart the West, they would have done so a long time ago.
Muslim rage did not begin with the invasion of Iraq or Afghanistan. It did not begin with the atrocities of Abu Ghraib, Guantanamo or even Syria.

Muslims understand very well the destructiveness of Western colonialism precisely because they have been its victims for centuries.

But the sublimeness of Islam prevents us from acting upon whim, even when we are the victims of the greatest injustice. The West should thank Allah (swt) a million times for allowing us to hold on firmly to our Islam despite the overwhelming pressure to act to the contrary.

If Muslims were a people of pragmatism, the entire West would have already been burned to the ground. The scale of the West’s destruction in the Muslim world is still to this day mostly ignored or not understood in the West.

Western states competing for global hegemony have been at the source of the world’s chaos for centuries. And the methods employed in the race for hegemony are unrecognisable to our humanity.
Details surrounding the events in Paris will inevitably unfold with time. Some details may very well not ever be fully realised. What we do know for sure, and what we have known for centuries, is that Western states competing for global hegemony are willing to pursue the most depraved policies for purposes of political expediency.

We will never understand the events in Paris unless we looked to events in Syria. Here we will witness an intense struggle between France and America for leadership over the future of that part of the world. The struggle is real and it is deadly, and its embers do not recognise borders.
Innocents, both Muslim and non-Muslim, will inevitably be its victims.

This truth is easily recognisable by the Muslim. To others, a war needs to be waged upon ignorance.
Western states are playing with our lives. Their policies have already killed countless millions and they are ready to kill countless millions more. It is time we all confront this stark reality. [from Wassim Doureihi's FB]

Muslim Imam Response to Paris Terrorist Attacks

If the current attack taking place in France is coordinated by Muslims, it is truly sad.

These last few months have shown us horrific images of what our Palestinian and Syrian brothers and sisters are suffering from. We have seen first hand the devastation that the American and British invasions of Iraq have led to. It is as if most of the Muslim world is besieged and under attack, primarily from Western lands. As the situation exacerbates, inevitably the rising anger from such attacks will circle back. Violence only begets violence.

Putting aside the very dubious Shar'i justifications proposed by radical groups to justify the retaliatory killings of civilians (again, this is supposing that the current attack has taken place at the hands of religious radicals), the Sharia ALSO takes into account the tangible harms that will come out of an action. Even if these groups believed such random killings to be justified (a belief that I do not share), they would also have to look at the consequences of their actions and THEN judge permissibility. This principle, known as 'weighing the harm', is why our Prophet (salla Allahu alayhi wa sallam) refused to order the execution of the worst hypocrite in Madinah, Abdullah b. Ubay b. Salul. Not that his life was sacred - far from it! - but rather that our Prophet (SAW) fully understood that the negative repercussions and damage that the Muslims would suffer as a result of his execution far outweighed the good that might possibly come out of it.

So what possible good will come of these senseless attacks? Since when have ANY attacks in Western lands helped our Palestinian brothers against Israelis? Or our Afghan and Iraqi brothers and sisters against Western invasions? Or the Muslim refugees anywhere in the world?

Rather than help, such attacks will:

1) Increase the resolve of these powers to send even more military might and aid against innocent Muslims around the world

2) Bring about an increase in hate crimes against Muslims in Western lands

3) Increase the paranoia of Islamphobia around the globe

4) Ease the introduction of more and more draconian legislation that unfairly targets Muslims, under the guise of 'safety from terrorists'

5) Curb more and more speech and dissent that is technically legal

6) Turn the tide against accepting Muslim refugees from Syria and other war-torn zones
...and many, many, many more harms.

The fact of that matter is that I cannot see a single tangible positive that the tactics of such groups bring (again, with the caveat that this attack in France is coming from such groups). Yet, the harms from such attacks only increases as a result, and the consequences are that the 'War Against Terror' is bolstered, leading to a war of terror.

And the saddest fact of all? That neither side seems to understand what they are doing will only increase the desperation and violence of the other side. No one learns from history. We are locked in a vicious cycle, from which unfortunately no easy way out is evident

Similarities Between Catholic Terrorist Group IRA and Muslim Terrorist Group ISIS

From 1969 to 1997, certain Irish-Catholic groups, under the banner of the Irish Republican Army (IRA), began targeting British military, royalty, and eventually, even the broader public. Throughout the 70s, 80s and early 90s, many dozens of bombs were detonated by the IRA, typically in public places, which resulted in the deaths of hundreds of civilians (at times even Royalty: a grandson of Queen Victoria, Lord Mountbatten of Indian fame, was also assassinated by the IRA).

The goal of the IRA was clear. They wanted political freedom from the United Kingdom, and viewed their land, Ireland, as having been illegally invaded, occupied, and illegitimately ruled by the British. They had a long list of grievances regarding how the British routinely mistreated the Irish (dating back to the 17th century!!). The British paid no head to their complaints, until finally the IRA felt that they had no option but to fight back, hence they launched these paramilitary campaigns.

During this period of violence, the IRA was labelled as a 'terrorist organization' (which it clearly was). And their Catholic heritage as well played a role in their anti-British sentiment, since the British were Anglicans. Nonetheless, no one of intelligence viewed ALL Catholics as somehow being a part of the IRA. Even being 'Irish' was not considered guilt by association (except of course by a handful of bigoted racists).

What is truly bizarre is that everyone knew that large segments of the Irish-Catholic population sympathized with the goals of the IRA, and shared the same grievances even while they disagreed with their tactics. In other words, the average person clearly understood that sympathizing with the grievances did not mean sympathizing with the terrorists' tactics. Eventually, political leaders realized that no matter how repugnant the tactics of the IRA, the grievances that they had were legitimate and would have to be dealt with if peace was desired. And that is exactly when the ruling party in 1997 managed to bring an end to the Irish conflict: by acknowledging that there was legitimate anger, and that a solution would have to be proposed that dealt with those political problems.

Sadly, when it comes to brown skin colors, and the very different religion of Islam, all of that sensibility seams to be lost.

Being 'Muslim' doesn't translate into support for ISIS. Having political grievances (e.g,. false invasions; legalizing Islamophobia, etc.) and sympathizing with oppressed people (e.g., the Palestinians, Iraqis, Afghans, etc.) doesn't translate into wanting to kill everyone else. Terrorism almost ALWAYS stems from political grievances, even if those who perpetrate them happen to follow another religion. And a genuine solution must take into account the causes for terrorism and then deal with those causes, even if all rational people oppose the irrational and inhumane tactics of the terrorists.

There are two segments of mankind who believe that 'the West' is at war with 'Islam': the Far Right, and ISIS. Each side wants to convince more and more people that that is the case. If we in the middle fall for that narrative instead of fighting the radicals on both sides, more and more violence will continue, and there will be no solution in sight.

Hadith Explained “everyone is facilitated in that for which he has been created”

what is meant by "everyone is facilitated in that for which he has been created" in the following hadith from Muslim
Book 033, Hadith Number 6400.
'Ali reported that one day Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) was sitting with a wood in his hand and he was scratching the ground. He raised his head and said: There is not one amongst you who has not been allotted his seat in Paradise or Hell. They said: Allah's Messenger, then, why should we perform good deeds, why not depend upon our destiny? Thereupon he said: No, do perform good deeds, for everyone is facilitated in that for which he has been created; then he recited this verse: "Then, who gives to the needy and guards against evil and accepts the excellent (the truth of Islam and the path of righteousness it prescribes), We shall make easy for him the easy end..." (xcii. 5-10).

The Statement “everyone is facilitated in that for which he has been created” means that the deeds leading to Jannah will be made easy for the one who has been allotted his seat in Jannah; and the deeds leadind to Hell will be made easy for the one who has been allotted his seat in hell.

Explanation of Hadith of He said: 'Aisha, per adventure, it may be otherwise, because God created for Paradise those who are fit for it while they were yet in their father's loins and created for Hell those who are to go to Hell. He created them for Hell while they were yet in their father's loins.

Please explain.
Book 033, Hadith Number 6436.
'Aisha, the mother of the believers, said that Allah's Messenger (may peace be upon him) was called to lead the funeral prayer of a child of the Ansar. I said: Allah's Messenger, there is happiness for this child who is a bird from the birds of Paradise for it committed no sin nor has he reached the age when one can commit sin. He said: 'Aisha, per adventure, it may be otherwise, because God created for Paradise those who are fit for it while they were yet in their father's loins and created for Hell those who are to go to Hell. He created them for Hell while they were yet in their father's loins.

The opinion of majority of the scholars on children passing away before the age of puberty is that they will all go to Jannah. As far as the Hadith mentioned is concerned, the scholars have given two possible answers to it:

a) The object of Nabi’s (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) statement was to prevent

Aisha (RA) from making rational decisions without any proof.

b) Nabi (Sallallahu Alaihi Wasallam) said this before he came to know that all

children passing away before the age of puberty will enter Jannah.

Predestination and Islam

Praise be to Allaah.

One must believe in two things:

1 – That Allaah, may He be exalted, is the Creator of all things, and nothing happens in the universe except by His will. He knows what is to come and He decreed all of that and wrote it in a Book fifty thousand years before He created the heavens and the earth, as is stated in a saheeh report from our Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him). He is Just and does not wrong anyone in the slightest, because He is independent of His creation and has no need of them. He is Kind and Gracious to them constantly, so how could He wrong them?

This principle is indicated by a great deal of evidence in the Qur’aan and Sunnah, such as the verses in which Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Verily, We have created all things with Qadar (Divine Preordainments of all things before their creation as written in the Book of Decrees ___ Al‑Lawh Al‑Mahfooz)”
[al-Qamar 54:49] 

“No calamity befalls on the earth or in yourselves but it is inscribed in the Book of Decrees (Al‑Lawh Al‑Mahfooz) before We bring it into existence. Verily, that is easy for Allaah”
[al-Hadeed 57:22].

And the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) said: “Allaah decided the decrees of creation fifty thousand years before He created the heavens and the earth. He said: And His Throne is above the water.” Narrated by Muslim (2653).

2 – Man has free will and choice by means of which he does some things and refrains from others, and he believes or disbelieves, and he obeys or disobeys, for which he will be brought to account and rewarded or punished, although Allaah knows what he will do, what he will choose and what his ultimate destiny will be. But Allaah does not compel him to do evil, or to choose kufr, rather He clearly shows him the path and He has sent Messengers and revealed Books, and shown him the right way. Whoever goes astray does so to his own loss,.

Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“And say: ‘The truth is from your Lord.’ Then whosoever wills, let him believe; and whosoever wills, let him disbelieve”
[al-Kahf 18:29] 

“Verily, We showed him the way, whether he be grateful or ungrateful”
[al-Insaan 76:3]  

“So whosoever does good equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant) shall see it.
8. And whosoever does evil equal to the weight of an atom (or a small ant) shall see it”
[al-Zalzalah 99:7,8] 

“And it will be cried out to them: ‘This is the Paradise which you have inherited for what you used to do’”
[al-A’raaf 7:43] 

“so taste you the abiding torment for what you used to do”
[al-Sajdah 32:14]

Allaah tells us that man believes and does righteous deeds by his own choice and free will, then he enters Paradise, or he disbelieves and does evil deeds by his own choice and free will, then he enters Hell.

Every person knows in his own heart and by looking at those around him, that our deeds – good and evil, obedient and sinful – are done by our own choice, and we do not feel that there is any force compelling us to do them. You can curse, swear, lie and backbite, just as you can praise Allaah, glorify Him, pray for forgiveness, speak the truth and give sincere advice. You can walk to places of idle entertainment, falsehood and evil, just as you can walk to the mosques or places of goodness and obedience. A man can strike with his hand, steal, speak falsehood and betray, or he can help the needy, do good and do favours with his hands. Everyone does some of these deeds and he does not feel that he is compelled or forced, rather he does them by his own free will and then he will be called to account for them; if they were good, then the consequences will be good, and if they were bad then the consequences will be bad.

What Allaah has decreed is something that man cannot know and he cannot base his deeds on it or use it as an excuse. It is also not valid for him to object to his Lord by questioning why He has caused someone to be among the doomed or the blessed.  Allaah has not wronged the one who is doomed, rather He gave him time and ability and freedom of choice, and He sent to him Messengers and revealed Books to them, and He reminded him and warned him with all kinds of reminders, such as calamities and tests, so that he would repent to Him and turn to Him. If he chose the path of misguidance, and followed the way of criminals, he only harmed himself, and he is the one who has caused his own doom, as Allaah says (interpretation of the meaning):

“Indeed he succeeds who purifies his ownself (i.e. obeys and performs all that Allaah ordered, by following the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism and by doing righteous good deeds).
10. And indeed he fails who corrupts his ownself (i.e. disobeys what Allaah has ordered by rejecting the true Faith of Islamic Monotheism or by following polytheism, or by doing every kind of evil wicked deeds)”
[al-Shams 91:9, 10] 

“Allaah wronged them not, but they wronged themselves”
[Aal ‘Imraan 3:117] 

“Has not the story reached them of those before them? — The people of Nooh (Noah), ‘Aad, and Thamood, the people of Ibraaheem (Abraham), the dwellers of Madyan (Midian) and the cities overthrown [i.e. the people to whom Loot (Lot) preached]; to them came their Messengers with clear proofs. So it was not Allaah Who wronged them, but they used to wrong themselves”
[al-Tawbah 9:70]

To sum up: the belief that Allaah is the Creator Who has decreed all things and has distinguished those who are blessed from those who are doomed, does not mean that Allaah forces His slaves to obey or disobey. Rather He has given them the ability to choose and free will, which is what they act upon, and for which they will be brought to account. Your Lord does not wrong His slaves.
See also the answer to question no. 96989.

And Allaah knows best.

Christian Missionary Propganda About Asmirandah Zantman's 'Conversion' (Indonesian Actress)

Recently I saw an article about the Indonesian actress' (Asmirandah Zantman's) conversion to Christianity on social media. It was being used as Christian missionary propaganda.

The article reporting on her 'conversion' to Christianity is dated the 3rd of November 2015 yet Wikipaedia suggests she married and converted to Protstantism (a denomination of Christianity) in 2013 so it's an old conversion yet it's given the veneer of being more recent.

Asmirandah is pictured wearing a hijab to reflect her faith prior to her 'conversion' to Christianity. Of course the Christian missionaries want to make out that Asmirandah was devout and converted to Christianity for a faithful reason.

However, in Indonesia mixed-faith couples; in order to obtain a marriage certificate must be of the same faith - thus one partner converts. Some choose to convert and live with their new religion like the actress Asmirandah seemingly has done while others only involve themselves in a 'conversion' in order to get a marriage certificate but then continue with their original religion. It appears her boyfriend did not want to convert to Islam so she converted Christianity - she appears to have chosen her boyfriend over her religion.
Christian missionaries, who are  attempting to use Asmirandah's 'conversion'  for Christian missionary purposes are either ignorant of her situation and her past or they are being deliberately disingenuous  in using her as a model 'convert'.

As for her being devout and a wearer of the hijab, she began her career without a hijab. She wore the hijab for a brief period. She confirmed a relationship with her boyfriend Jonas Rivanno (actor) in 2012 and got married in 2013 (see Wikipaedia).

So, it seems, to try and make out she was some devout Muslim lady who began to read the Bible and decided to convert because she thought Christianity was a true faith is misleading.

Oh and to the person who wrote she looks 'free' now (i.e. without the hijab), loosening one's modesty and wearing less clothing does not make one free. If that's your logic, then what of strippers..

In any case, how do you know Asmirandah is not a Muslim by heart or will not come back to Islam later on in her life or if she leaves her Christian husband?

My advice to Christians is stop using her for your Christian missionary propaganda. It's not clever. It's not sincere. And Christianity is the wrong path.

"UK Government Allowed British Muslims to Rape English Girls for Votes" - Anne Marie Waters Propganda Exposed

This was the vile propaganda a lady called Anne-Marie Waters was presenting at Speakers' Corner in London. It's indicative of the hateful propaganda Muslims in Europe are subjected to.

In this video we look at Anne Marie Waters' lies with the lens of consistency and correction.

Firstly, let's put an end to this malicious lie that Sharia allows rape. Here's what two prominent Muslim scholars have said about rape:

This is an abhorrent crime that is forbidden in all religions and in the minds of all wise people and those who possess sound human nature. All earthly systems and laws regard this action as abhorrent and impose the strictest penalties on it. 

Islam has a clear stance which states that this repugnant action is haram (forbidden) and imposes a deterrent punishment on the one who commits it [Sheikh Saleh al Munajjid]

Rape is a horrible crime; a horrible sin before God. You must honor the wombs that carried you [Imam Suhaib Webb]

Anne-Marie Waters' Vile Anti-Muslim propaganda exposed

If the video does not play, please see here

Anne Marie Waters read reports of criminal Muslims in Britain who raped English girls (all communities have criminals in them) and she decided to  disingenuously link this with Sharia in order to further her anti-Muslim  agenda. As we can clearly see from the unambiguous quotes above from authorities on Islam, Sharia does not allow rape.

However, I wonder if Anne-Marie Waters would be consistent when it comes to labelling whole communities and religions as rapists based on a few criminals within the said community. In the video I highlight reported claims of forced sex within the US army, would Anne-Marie Waters say Christian and American law allows this? I also used a headline about our UK armed forces, an organisation which is plagued by male rape - would Anne Marie Waters claim the UK government allows Christian/Atheist soldiers to rape other males for votes?

Quilliam Foundation's Hypocrisy in Hiring Adam Deen

While people just pass off Adam Deen's employment with the Quilliam Foundation as another former extremist nutjob to get a few shillings from the ex-Islamist industry I see a little more to it than that. You do see a few of these 'ex-Islamist' characters doing the rounds in American churches as supposed Christian converts all the while raking in the cash through church speaking tours and book deals. Muslims have their own ex-Islamist industry in the West - the Qulliam Foundation features heavily on that horizon. However, I see the contradictions and inconsistencies here in hiring Adam Deen.

Just have a look at Adam Deen's recent work. He's a 'Non Violent' extremist according to some at the government and a 'homophobe' according to large sections of the media. More relevantly,  Adam Deen's views are in opposition to Quilliam's public statements yet hypocritically - I can't be bothered to use fluffier terms -  Adam Deen is hired as the Quilliam Foundation's head of  'outreach' (yep they call it 'outreach,' perhaps a term borrowed from the ex-Islamists operating as figureheads for Christian missionary activity across the pond in America).

Adam Deen, Homosexuals and Quilliam Foundations' Inconsistency

If Anjem Choudary taught the things Adam Deen teaches about homosexuals the media would call Anjem a homophobe yet Adam Deen gets a job at Quilliam while doing precisely that. Hypocrisy, here's a chunk of text Quilliam had on their website in support of homosexuals:

Quilliam believes that homosexuals should be treated equally in all respects and in all countries. Consequently, we will continue to campaign for civil liberties for all human beings, and don’t think we need to dabble in theology to do this. We at Quilliam address theology only to dismantle the ideology of Islamism itself. Hence, we will speak out openly against anyone who calls for, or believes, that homosexuals should be punished by law in any way, in any country.  [Source]

The last sentence is key as Adam Deen through his organisation (the Deen Institute)  and more embarrassingly for the Quilliam Foundation through his comments on the Quilliam Foundation website supports the capital punishment of gays!

On the website he claimed to be a Hanafi - the Hanafi position calls for the punishment of any man who is caught in homosexual activity. To top this all off, this is confirmed by Adam Deen's own instructor at the Deen Institute. If you don't believe the Quilliam Foundation could have made such an oversight, see the video below, at the timeframe 2.00, featuring a clip of the Deen Institute's Aabek Shukurov going through the maximum punishment of homosexuals.

I'm not too sure about Quilliam's view on the punishment of adulterers but Adam Deen's Deen Institute's chief instructor teaches such at the timeframe 1.35 onwards in he video below.

The Quilliam Foundation, if they were true to their words concerning homosexuals would have spoken out against Adam Deen NOT allowed him to cash-in on the ex-Islamist industry with the likes of Maajid Nawaz!

On top of this, Adam Deen would be called a Non Violent extremist by folk in the media due to his views which contradict 'Western values' as the video suggests.

Perhaps this is not hypocrisy from the Quilliam Foundation and their financial backers but rather indicative of a U-turn by Quilliam and its band of 'ex-extremists'.

PS I have no problem with people like Adam Deen and any person with a religion (of which I am one) having freedom of conscience to believe whatever they want about adultery, homosexual practices and inter-religious marriage.  I am certainly NOT calling for Adam Deen and those at his Deen Institute organisation to drop their beliefs - far, far from it. Rather, I'd like to see less hypocrisy from the Quilliam Foundation and those in the ex-Islamist industry as well as the Islamophobia industry. Call a spade a spade. Be confident to say what you are actually about regardless of whether it means you will struggle to pay your mortgage or not.

I will finish off with a quote from a contemporary Muslim scholar and a man who I admire greatly:

'I have to say, I've ever only felt the need to shower after meeting someone once in my life... And it was quilliam people.' [from Dr Jonathan AC Brown's FB]

Update: A comment I left on Paul William's blog discussing Adam's appointment:

Very disappointed in Adam.

What's there to stop Adam from trying to form his own organisation rather than jumping in bed with the folk at QF?

At QF he will obviously have to tow the party (donor) lines. They will have their own protocols and agendas their employees will operate from. I don't really hold much hope for Adam changing this corrupt organisation from the inside.

It would have been better for Adam to have got a band of Muslims together and formed an organisation which upheld mainstream Muslim beliefs and interests. Perhaps working in conjunction with one of the big mosques in the UK (East London or Regents Park Mosque). That's something Muslims need much more than a Muslim swelling the ranks of QF. Muslims here are crying out for an organisation which can be backed without any issues and which voices its social and religious interests in the media

If his job is to infiltrate the organisation, all the best to him - set up the James Bond theme tune - grab a water pistol, squeeze into a tux, call me Deen, Adam Deen! If he's just going to be a bit of an errand boy over there what's the point, use your energy more wisely. Having said that, I doubt Adam will last in that organisation for long, from my sketchy knowledge of his history (folks correct me if I'm wrong here - don't go OTT though) he has left that Al Muhajiroon group, HT, MDI and perhaps some other groups in the past. Adam is  not afraid of jumping ship so I guess he will jump ship if he thinks the QF are not changing to his liking or if he's not happy.

I think Adam's shower will get a lot of use when he gets to meet all his new colleagues:
