Islamist Watch, by David M. Swindle • Feb 11, 2017
We have recently published two compilations of sermons by the Islamist cleric Siraj Wahhaj, one of the most popular preachers at some of American Islam’s biggest conferences.
Now, we have put together a compilation of his sermons on adultery, theft and hatred of non-Muslims. He is frank about his views: stone to death adulterers; chop off the hands of thieves; lashes for people who drink; do not be intimate with “those outside your race”; and non-muslims are “foul and corrupting.”
The sermons illustrate, once again, the extremism of the Islamist clerics preaching to thousands all across America.
Do you understand what they’re doing, brothers and sisters? Do you understand what these devils who control the media are doing? Enticing you, exciting you? Exciting your children, your boys and your girls? So, by the time they go to junior high school, everything is all showing, and they want to get involved because everywhere you look in this society they encourage you to do zina [fornication or adultery]. Why? Because they’re being controlled by Shaytan [Satan]. This society, America, wallahi azeem. America is controlled by Shaytan. American government is controlled by Shaytan. American way of life is controlled by Shaytan. It is. Oh yes, it is. Definitely. No doubt about it.
The word in Qu’ran, zina, means either fornication or adultery. If you commit zina and you’re single, the punishment in Islam is 100 lashes. If you commit zina and you’re married, the punishment is death by stoning—capital punishment. What you read in Qu’ran is the punishment for fornication, but the punishment for married and committing zina is death by stoning. You know how angry Allah is by the degree of his punishment for breaking a law. Allah is angry at you when you steal. He sees you. Punishment, chop off the hand. He’s angry. When you drink, Brother, punishment? Lashes. You take drugs? Punishment? Lashes.
So, Allah is angry. Punishment for adultery, zina, brother? Serious. Death by stoning.
Woe to the Muslims who pick kafirs [non-Muslims] for friends. Woe, woe, woe to the Muslims who take kafirs as friends. Kafir will take you away from the remembrance of Allah.
Take not into your intimacy those outside of your race. They will not fail to corrupt you. Don’t you know our children are surrounded by kafirs. I’m telling you, making the hearts of our children corrupt, dirty, foul. It’s clear, the principles are clear. Birds of a feather, they say, flock together. And so, when our Muslims hang out with the non-Muslim, you become just like them. You talk just like them. You do what they do, you dress the way they dress, you act the way they act, you want to be just like them, because their hearts are corrupt, and now they’re corrupting your heart.
The thief, the one who steals, man or woman, male or female, chop off their hands. If they steal, chop off their hands. This is a commandment of Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala.
And you know what, believe me, you chop off enough hands, all the people will get the example. And the people say, well, I’d better not do that, if I don’t feel like getting my hands chopped off. This is an example from Allah, subhanahu wa ta’ala. He is – Al Aziz, Al Ḥakim – powerful and he is wise.
