In Ramadan 2016, an Imam at Masjid Toronto mosque recited a supplication to Allah to inflict total destruction on the enemies of Islam.
The following are excerpts from a sermon recited by Ayman Elkasrawy:
[O Allah], give us victory over the disbeliever people… O Allah, give victory to Islam and raise the standing of Muslims. O Allah, give victory to Islam and raise the standing of Muslims. [O Allah], as for those whowish ill for Islam and Muslims, restrain them by their neck and destroy them as you destroyed [the peoples of ]ʿĀd and Thamud [ancient peoples that perished by Allah because they didn’t heed the warnings of the prophets].
Masjid Toronto mosque has recently deleted its official YouTube channel following CIJnews report on supplications at the mosque that asked Allah to “slay” the Jews/ disbelievers “one by one”, to purify al-Aqsa mosque from the “filth of the Jews”, to support the “mujahideen” (those who engage in jihad) everywhere and to give victory to Muslims over the “disbelievers”, “polytheists” (Christians) and “atheists.”
On February 20, 2017 Masjid Toronto mosque has issued a statement apologizing only for the “inappropriate supplication that was offensive to those of Jewish faith.” The mosque did not condemn the supplications against the “disbelievers”, “polytheists” (Christians) and “atheists” and the supplications in support of the mujahideen. It was also reported that Elkasrawy was suspended.
Ayman Elkasrawy, Imam at Masjid Toronto mosque recited during Ramadan 2016 the following supplications:
O Allah! We ask you… [to give us] victory over the enemies. O Allah! Raise the standing of Islam and the Muslims. O Allah! Give victory (help) to your oppressed slaves all over the world, east to west. O Allah! Give victory (help) to your slaves who believe in the oneness of Allah, O the Lord of the Worlds! O Allah! Destroy the criminals. O Allah! Destroy anyone who inflicts injustice on your slaves, O the Lord of the Worlds! O Allah! Count their number; slay them one by one and spare not one of them. O Allah! Do not defer [it] from them. O Allah! Seize them with the seizure of One Mighty, Omnipotent [referring to a Quranic verse that deals with the punishment Allah inflicted on Pharaoh and his people].
[O Allah!] Give us victory over the disbelieving people… O Allah! Give victory to Islam and raise the standing the Muslims. And humiliate the polytheism and polytheists. O Allah! Give victory (help) to your slaves who believe in the oneness of Allah, O the Lord of the Worlds!O Allah! Give them victory over the criminal people. O Allah! Destroy anyone who killed Muslims. O Allah! Destroy anyone who displaced the sons of the Muslims. O Allah! Count their number; slay them one by one and spare not one of them. O Allah! Purify Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews! O Allah! Purify Al-Aqsa Mosque from the filth of the Jews!
Shaykh Abdool Hamid, Imam at Masjid Toronto mosque, recites the following supplication:
O Allah! Raise the standing of Islam and the Muslims and humiliate the polytheism, the polytheists, the infidels and the atheists, and Give victory (help) to your slaves who believe in the oneness of Allah. O Allah! Give victory to our oppressed and deprived Muslim brothers and the mujahideen (those who engage in jihad) everywhere.O Allah! Pour on them patience and steadfast their feet. And give them victory over the disbelieving people and give them victory over the evildoers and give them victory over the criminals.
Mostafa Hanout, Imam at Masjid Toronto mosque, recited in Ramadan 2016 the following supplication:
O Allah give victory to the oppressed Muslims everywhere. O Allah give victory to the oppressed Muslims everywhere. O Allah help them in Palestine, help them in Syria, help them in Burma. Help them in any place in which they are treated unjustly, O Lord of the Worlds… O Allah don’t give the disbelievers over the believers a way [to overcome them].
Edmonton Imam: “Destroy them completely, annihilate them all”
Sheikh Shaban Sherif Mady (شعبان شريف ماضي), was a scholar at al-Azhar theological school in Egypt and served at the Ministry of Endowment and Ministry of Education of the Egyptian government. Today, he is the Imam of a Muslim congregation in Edmonton, Alberta which holds its Friday prayers at Glengarry Hall in Edmonton.
In a Friday sermon (February 2016), Imam Shaban Sherif Mady mentioned Mohammad’s prophecy about the future Islamic conquer of Europe and defeating Christianity, Islam’s prime enemy, after taking over Turkey and Palestine.
The Prophet Muhammad told us that Constantinople would be conquered. This was the capital city of the Byzantine Empire. I am talking about prophecies from the sunna. Where is Constantinople, the capital city of the Byzantine Empire? Today, it is in Turkey. Turkey, Montenegro, Kosovo, all the way to Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia… All these countries were ruled by the rightly guided Caliphate, the last Caliphate of the Muslims. [It ruled] about half of Europe, in the East, and then the other half, in the West, the countries of Al-Andalus: Spain, Portugal, and part of France, all the way to the Ural Mountains. All this was an Islamic Caliphate. Constantinople will be conquered. It is the Prophet Muhammad who said so. And what was Constantinople? Just like the Vatican today, it was the capital of all the Christians in the world. It was conquered and became Turkey. The Hagia Sophia became a great mosque, where Allah is worshipped.The prophecies of the Prophet Muhammad came true. But some prophecies have not come true yet. Look forward to it, because the Prophet Muhammad said that Rome would be conquered! It will be conquered. Constantinople was conquered. Rome is the Vatican, the very heart of the Christian state. When and how? You and I, who suffer of psychological defeatism, cannot fathom that. But people of faith have will, power, and understanding, and they know that the Prophet’s hadith is true, for he does not speak on a whim.”
Alberta Islamic Welfare Association headed by Shaban Sherif Mady hosted on Family Day (February 5, 2016) Syrian refugees and their families for a social gathering with members of the local Muslim community in Edmonton and the Imam Shaban Sherif Mady.
In his speech to the Syria refugees, Shaban Sherif Mady greeted them, emphasized the merits of the people of Greater Syria in the eyes of Allah for defeating the Crusaders and the Tatars and ended with a supplication to Allah. The following is an excerpt from the supplication (originally in Arabic):
O Allah! Strengthen the mujahideen [jihad fighters in the path of Allah] everywhere, make their hearts firm and strong, let them hit their targets, give them victory over their enemies. O Allah! Destroy the oppressors. O Allah! Destroy your enemies, the enemies of religion (Islam). O Allah! Whoever wishes good for Islam and the Muslims bestow all goodness upon him. O Allah! Whoever wishes ill for us and wishes ill for Islam and the Muslims, make his plot (tied) around his neck and make him preoccupied with himself, and make his plan cause his own destruction.
In his Friday sermons in Edmonton during the years 2013-14, Shaban Sherif Mady saidthe following:
O the courageous Palestinian people! Al-Quds (Jerusalem) will become the capital of the Islamic State, not of Palestine… Had it not been betrayal, all the territory of Europe was almost conquered from Andalus (Spain). This is the promise of the Prophet Mohammad. The victory will come… Then the Rightly-Guided Caliphate (Islamic State) will be established and it will follow the path of the Prophet (Mohammad). We will welcome it.
Why (the Muslim Brotherhood movement was designated as) a terrorist organization? Because it calls for the return of the Caliphate (Islamic State). If so, I’m an operative of the Muslim Brotherhood, I’m a terrorist… (O Allah) As for those who wish ill for Islam and Muslims, make their animosity annihilate themselves, make them kill themselves, destroy them completely, annihilate them all, like you did to the peoples of A’d and Thamoud [ancient peoples that perished by Allah because they didn’t heed the warnings of the prophets]… O Allah, support all mujahideen in any place around the globe… O Allah, support any mujaheed (jihadist) who raises the flag of Islam.”
