As Toronto continues to reel after Faisal Hussain went on a shooting rampage, injuring 15 people and murdering two, the “mental illness” terror excuse is starting to wear thin. A policeman in Toronto said of Faisal Hussain: “I have never seen anybody operate any kind of weapon as well as he did.” Another law enforcement source divulged to CBS News:

Faisal Hussain visited Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS) websites and may have expressed support for the terrorist group. They were looking into whether Hussain may have lived at one time in Afghanistan and possibly Pakistan

Public safety appears to be a second priority in Canada behind appearing not to be “Islamophobic.” Meanwhile, another troubling report has emerged from the American Center for Democracy: “ISIS-like” Islamic teachings are “freely and widely shared in Toronto” by “activists at the Islamic booth at Toronto’s Dundas Square.”

 

’ISIS-like’ Islamic teachings freely and widely shared in Toronto,” by Rachel Ehrenfeld, American Center for Democracy, July 25, 2018:

The following are excerpts from the book which was distributed for free on July 13, 2018 at Dundas Square. The excerpts include Quranic verses followed by a modern commentary in the footnotes.

*Surah (chapter) Al-Baqarah [The Cow – 2]

Verse 62 (p. 9)

Indeed, those who believed and those who were Jews or Christians or Sabeans [before Prophet Muhammad] – those [among them] who believed in Allah and the Last Day and did righteousness – will have their reward with their Lord, and no fear will there be concerning them, nor will they grieve.29

Footnote 29

After the coming of Prophet Muhammad (PBUH) no religion other than Islam is acceptable

to Allah, as stated in 3:85 [And whoever desires other than Islam as religion – never will it be accepted from him, and he, in the Hereafter, will be among the losers.].

Verse 79 [p. 11]

So woe 32 to those who write the “scripture” with their own hands, then say, “This is from Allah,” in order to exchange it for a small price. Woe to them for what their hands have written and woe to them for what they earn.

Footnote 32

i.e., death and destruction.

Verse 131 [p. 18]

When his Lord said to him, “Submit,” he said, “I have submitted [in Islam]45 to the Lord of the worlds.”

Footnote 45

The meaning of the word “Islam” is “submission to the will of Allah.” This is the way of life ordained by Allah and taught by all of the prophets from Adam to Muhammad (PBUH). A Muslim is one who submits himself to Allah.

Verse 191 [p. 27]

And kill them wherever you overtake them and expel them from wherever they have expelled you, and fitnah 69 is worse than killing. And do not fight them at al-Masjid al-Haram until they fight you there. But if they fight you, then kill them. Such is the recompense of the disbelievers.

Footnote 69

Among the meanings of fitnah are disbelief and its imposition on others, discord, dissension, civil strife, persecution, oppression, injustice, seduction, trial and torment.

*Surah (chapter) Al Imran [The House of Imran – 3]

Verse 28 [p. 48]

Let not believers take disbelievers as allies [i.e., supporters or protectors] rather than believers. And whoever [of you] does that has nothing [i.e., no association] with Allah, except when taking precaution against them in prudence.122 And Allah warns you of Himself, and to Allah is the [final] destination.

Footnote 122

When fearing harm from an enemy, the believer may pretend as long as his heart and intention are not affected.

Verse 75 [p. 53]

And among the People of the Scripture is he who, if you entrust him with a great amount [of wealth], he will return it to you. And among them is he who, if you entrust him with a [single] silver coin, he will not return it to you unless you are constantly standing over him [demanding it]. That is because they say, “There is no blame upon us concerning the unlearned.”133 And they speak untruth about Allah while they know [it].

Footnote 133

The Jews do not consider it a sin to cheat or lie to a gentile or a pagan.

Verse 112 [p. 58]

They have been put under humiliation [by Allah] wherever they are overtaken, except for a rope [i.e., covenant] from Allah and a rope [i.e., treaty] from the people [i.e., the Muslims].144 And they have drawn upon themselves anger from Allah and have been put under destitution. That is because they disbelieved in [i.e., rejected] the verses of Allah and killed the prophets without right. That is because they disobeyed and [habitually] transgressed.

Footnote 144

Once they have surrendered, the People of the Scripture retain their rights and honor (in spite of their refusal of Islam) through payment of the jizyah tax in place of zakah and military service due from Muslims. They are then under the protection of the Islamic state…….

Indeed, the penalty 262 for those who wage war 263 against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides or that they be exiled from the land. That is for them a disgrace in this world; and for them in the Hereafter is a great punishment,

Footnote 262

Legal retribution.

Footnote 263

i.e., commit acts of violence and terrorism against individuals or treason and aggression against the Islamic state.

Verse 60 [p. 104-105]

Say, “Shall I inform you of [what is] worse than that271 as penalty from Allah? [It is that of] those whom Allah has cursed and with whom He became angry and made of them apes and pigs and slaves of Taghut.272 Those are worse in position and further astray from the sound way.”

Footnote 271

Referring to the punishment the People of the Scripture (in their censure of the Muslims) claimed was deserved by them.

Footnote 272

See footnote to 2:256 [False objects of worship, such as idols, heavenly bodies, spirits, human

beings, etc.]

*Surah (chapter) Al- Anfal [Spoils of War – 8]

Verse 57 [p. 166]

So if you, [O Muhammad], gain dominance over them in war, disperse by [means of] them those behind them that perhaps they will be reminded.454

Footnote 454

i.e., kill them and make an example of them to discourage those who follow them.

*Surah (chapter) Al-Tawbah

*Surah at-Tawbah [Repentance – 9]

Verse 29 [p. 173]

Fight those who do not believe in Allah or in the Last Day and who do not consider unlawful what Allah and His Messenger have made unlawful and who do not adopt the religion of truth [i.e., Islam] from those who were given the Scripture – [fight] until they give the jizyah466 willingly while they are humbled.

Footnote 466

A tax required of non-Muslims exempting them from military service and entitling them to the protection of the Islamic state. Concurrently, Zakah is not taken from them, being an obligation only upon Muslims.

*Surah (chapter) Hud [Hud – 11]

Verse 78 [p. 209]

And his people came hastening to him, and before [this] they had been doing evil deeds.569 He said, “O my people, these are my daughters;570 they are purer for you. So fear Allah and do not disgrace me concerning my guests. Is there not among you a man of reason?”

Footnote 569

Referring to their practice of sodomy and homosexual rape of males.

Footnote 570

i.e., the women of his community who were available for marriage.

*Surah (chapter) An-Nahl [The Bee – 16]

Verse 106 [p. 206]

Whoever disbelieves in [i.e., denies] Allah after his belief…717 except for one who is forced [to renounce his religion] while his heart is secure in faith. But those who [willingly] open their breasts to disbelief, upon them is wrath from Allah, and for them is a great punishment;

Footnote 717

Based upon the conclusion of this verse, the omitted phrase concerning the apostate is understood to be “…has earned the wrath of Allah…”

*Surah (chapter) An-Nur [Light – 24]

Verse 2 [p. 336]

The [unmarried] woman or [unmarried] man found guilty of sexual intercourse 973 – lash each one of them with a hundred lashes,974 and do not be taken by pity for them in the religion [i.e., law] of Allah,975 if you should believe in Allah and the Last Day. And let a group of the believers witness their punishment.

Footnote 973

Either by voluntary confession of the offender or the testimony of four male witnesses to having actually seen the act take place. Otherwise, there can be no conviction.

Footnote 974

The ruling in this verse is applicable to unmarried fornicators. Execution by stoning is confirmed in the sunnah for convicted adulterers.

Footnote 975

i.e., Do not let sympathy for a guilty person move you to alter anything ordained by Allah, for in His law is protection of society as a whole.

*Surah (chapter) Ar-Rum [Byzantium – 30]

Verse 30 [p. 395-396]

So direct your face [i.e., self] toward the religion, inclining to truth. [Adhere to] the fitrah1146 of Allah upon which He has created [all] people. No change should there be in the creation of Allah.1147 That is the correct religion, but most of the people do not know.

Footnote 1146

The natural inborn inclination of man to worship his Creator prior to the corruption of his nature by external influences. Thus, Islamic monotheism is described as the religion of fitrah – that of the inherent nature of mankind.

Footnote 1147

i.e., let people remain true to their fitrah within the religion of Islam……..
