Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr preached: “O Muslim, O servant of Allah, O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.” That is why the arrest warrant has been issued.
But this is a quotation that is attributed to Muhammad:
“Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger said, ‘The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. “O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”’” (Bukhari 4.52.177)
“Narrated `Abdullah bin `Umar: I heard Allah’s Messenger saying, ‘The Jews will fight with you, and you will be given victory over them so that a stone will say, “O Muslim! There is a Jew behind me; kill him!”’” (Bukhari 4.56.791)
“Abdullah b. ‘Umar reported that Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) said: ‘The Jews will fight against you and you will gain victory over them until the stone would say: Muslim, here is a Jew behind me; kill him.’” (Muslim 6984)
“Abu Huraira reported Allah’s Messenger (may peace be upon him) as saying: The last hour would not come unless the Muslims will fight against the Jews and the Muslims would kill them until the Jews would hide themselves behind a stone or a tree and a stone or a tree would say: Muslim, or the servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me; come and kill him; but the tree Gharqad would not say, for it is the tree of the Jews.” (Muslim 6985)
It’s also in Tirmidhi, yet another hadith collection, one of the six collections (along with Bukhari and Muslim and three others) that Muslims consider most reliable:
“Ibn ‘Umar narrated that the Messenger of Allah said: ‘You shall fight the Jews. You will gain such control over them, that a rock will say: “O Muslim! This Jew is behind me so kill him!”’” (Tirmidhi 2236)
Are the Canadian police going to stop imams from quoting Muhammad? Now that the “anti-Islamophobia” motion M-103 has been passed, it is unlikely that they will do anything at all: only non-Muslim foes of jihad terror can commit “hate speech.”
Nonetheless, the problem remains. Imams in Canada (and elsewhere) can call for murder (Qur’an 2:191, 4:89, 9:5), kidnapping (Qur’an 47:4) and rape (Qur’an 4:3, 4:24, 23:1-6, 33:50, 70:30), all by quoting the Qur’an and Muhammad. So is it incitement to violence or the free exercise of religion?
So what are Canadian authorities going to do when imams keep on quoting Muhammad?
“Montreal police issue arrest warrant for imam who called for Jews to be killed in sermon,” CBC News, July 17, 2017:
Jordanian cleric Sheikh Muhammad bin Musa Al Nasr, a controversial imam seen here while giving a sermon at a Saint-Michel mosque, is wanted on charges of wilful promotion of hatred.
Montreal police have issued an arrest warrant for an imam who allegedly made hateful comments against Jews.
Sheikh Muhammad bin Musa Al-Nasr is wanted on charges of wilful promotion of hatred, which carries a prison term of up to two years.
Montreal police have refused to comment until the suspect appears in court, but Quebec’s Director of Criminal and Penal Prosecutions confirmed a justice of the peace issued the arrest warrant July 12.
A cleric from Jordan, he was invited to Dar Al-Arqam Mosque in the city’s Saint-Michel neighbourhood to give a sermon last December. The video was posted to the mosque’s YouTube channel three days later.
In it, Muhammad bin Musa Al-Nasr recites the following verse in Arabic: “O Muslim, O servant of Allah, there is a Jew behind me, come and kill him.”…
