U.S. imam: Muslims can take the property of Christians and Jews

Yasir Qadhi

Yasir Qadhi (aka Abu Ammaar Yasir Kazi) is an American imam and college professor who is described by a 2011 New York Times Magazine essay as “one of the most influential conservative clerics in American Islam.”

Born in Houston, Texas, to Pakistani parents, Qadhi spent his formative years in Saudi Arabia, having graduated from high school in Jeddah, after which he returned to the United States to pursue a B. Sc. in chemical engineering from the University of Houston, followed by a doctoral degree in theology at Yale University. Qadhi is presently a faculty member in the Religious Studies Department of Rhodes College, in Memphis, Tennessee.

Qadhi gives regular sermons and lectures, and also appears on a number of Islamic satellite channels in the U.S., U.K., Egypt, and India.

In his sermon/lecture in the YouTube audio below, Qadhi begins by calling Christians “shirk” for being “polythesists” who believe in the Triune God (three persons in one God), instead of Islam’s “monotheist” god Allah.

Then Qadhi really steps up his verbal abuse. He says, since “there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah wuzza wuzza,” Christians are “by necessity and by definition … the most evil of all evils.” Like all “unbelievers” and “polytheists,” Christians are “filthy.” They are “najusa” (feces, urine) — “a filthy impure dirty substance.”

Qadhi declares that the prophet Mohammad — and by extension all Muslims — “has been commanded to do jihad.”

What is jihad?

Jihad “is a means to establish monotheism on the land.” The prophet had said, “I have been commanded to fight the people until they” convert to Islam. But “if they don’t [convert to Islam,] their life and property are halal [free for the taking] for the Muslims.”

This hate-spewing man is not only an imam (the word means a teacher of Islam) but a college professor in Tennessee! If a Christian preacher or college professor had said this about another religious group — Jews, or Buddhists, or Muslims — it would be the leading news on all the mainstream media.

UPDATE (Nov. 10):

Here’s what you can do about Yasir Qadhi:

1. Contact the President of Rhodes College, William Troutt, and demand to know why Qadhi, who spews hate-speech and threatens violence against the life and property of Christians and Jews, is on the faculty. Here’s Troutt’s contact info:

  • Address: 2000 N. Parkway, Memphis, TN 38112-1690
  • Ph: (901) 843-3730
  • Email: trouttw@rhodes.edu

2. Contact your Congressman/woman and Senators and demand to know why this kind of violent hate speech is tolerated.

3. Write a letter to your local newspaper and, even better, to big national news media and demand to know why they’re not reporting on Qadhi’s violent hate speech.

UPDATE (Nov. 11, 2013):

In a July 3, 2013 essay titled “Clarification and Notice,” Yasir Qadhi claims to be a victim of malicious fraud. Referring to the above audio clip, he writes:

“This audio clip is a shoddy cut-and-paste job from a lengthy theological series (around 15 hours of audio) I gave many years ago, discussing the reality of the Islamic concept of shirk (associating partners with Allāh). The series had absolutely nothing to do with politics or jihad. Rather, some theological statements from that lecture have been taped together and made to look political. The audio recording as it stands is a complete distortion. Someone literally took sentences from different parts of that series and constructed a very menacing sounding paragraph in my voice. As such, that paragraph in the audio clip is a complete fabrication.[ …] I am a Muslim theologian and teach (and preach) the theology of Islam, but I have never called for violence against any group or religion.”

If Qadhi is telling the truth in his “Clarification and Notice” essay, then he is a most curious Muslim because the taking of property, including wives and children, from non-submissive unbelievers or infidels is in the Qu’ran and the Hadith. (The latter refers to the teachings of the “prophet” Mohammad.) The following is from an article titled “What Does the Religion of Peace Teach About Stealing“:

Qur’an (48:20)Allah promised you many acquisitions which you will take, then He hastened on this one for you and held back the hands of men from you, and that it may be a sign for the believers and that He may guide you on a right path.”  Allah promises Muslims that they will profit materially in their war against unbelievers.  It isn’t stealing when it’s taken from an unbeliever.

Qur’an (33:27)And He caused you to inherit their land and their houses and their wealth, and land ye have not trodden. Allah is ever Able to do all things.”  Referring again to the property of unbelievers, which is given to those Muslims who defeat them.

Ibn Ishaq (764) – As for taking from unbelievers, perhaps the most illuminating example among many comes from the aftermath of the battle against the Khaybar as recorded by Muhammad’s earliest biographer.  The Khaybar were a peaceful community of Jewish farmers who did not even know they were at war until Muhammad led his men against their town one morning, taking them by surprise and handily defeating them.

Not only did Muhammad take much of the town’s possessions and land, but he actually had the tribe’s treasurer, a man named Kinana, tortured until he gave up the location of hidden treasure.  Muhammad then beheaded the man and “married” his traumatized widow, Safiyya (who passed through the hands of one of his lieutenant’s first due to the luck of the draw).

Bukhari (44:668) –  “We were in the company of the Prophet at Dhul-Hulaifa. The people felt hungry and captured some camels and sheep (as booty)…”  Muhammad said that Allah would always provide sustenance for those who believe in him.  Stealing from non-Muslims was a legitimate means of fulfilling Allah’s promise.

Ahmad 4869 (also found in the original Hadith of Bukhari and Sahih al Jaami’ As Sagheer 2828) –  It is mentioned from Ibn ‘Umar from the Prophet, may Allah bless him and grant him peace, “I have been raised between the hands of the Hour with the sword, until Allah the Exalted is worshipped alone with no associates. He has provided sustenance from beneath the shadow of spears and has decreed humiliation and belittlement for those who oppose my order.”  Muhammad’s livelihood is found in the property of those who disobey him – to be seized by force if necessary.  ‘Humiliation” refer to the jizya that non-Muslims are supposed to pay Muslims by the mere fact of their unbelief.

Lastly, it should be noted that a Muslim cannot pick-and-choose what to believe or not in the Quran. The Quran promises the most severe of punishments for those who believe in one part of the Quran, but not the other (2:85).  There is no such thing as moderate Islam.  “Cafeteria” Muslims are not only disregarding their own religion, but are subject to punishment from true believers for it, since they are hypocrites by definition (see 66:9).

If Yasir Qadhi denies saying that the life and property of non-Muslims, including Christians, are for the taking by Muslims, then he is at best a “cafeteria” Muslim who’s a hypocrite in the eyes of “true” Muslims and, at worst, he was lying.

But then, Muslims are allowed to lie to infidels. It’s called taqiyya.

  12. Islam is ruled by the devil and the devil hates Jesus Christ therefore followers of Islam are bound to hate Christians and Jews who are followers of the true God!


  13. It’s always enlightening to hear such wisdom; especially when coming from a bone-headed, thin-lipped Nigeralian with a diaper on his head.


    • Jesus did not think it robbery to be equal with God. That is the reason the people wanted to stone Him. Also confronting the Pharisees on the Sabbath He said that He was Lord of the Sabbath. This makes him more than the “logos” it makes Him Lord. And the Holy Spirit is referred to many times as a person and not an angel. And the Godhead is mentioned in the New Testament. Just sayin.


  14. Very interesting and inciteful post!


  15. Pot, kettle.


  16. Ilike this artical very much


  17. I suppose he cannot hope to steal anyone’s property in the free world unless wants to be thrown in the slammer!


  18. Be nice if someone put the date, time and place of this sermon. And the transcript or a link to the transcript. someone’s probably written it down by this time.

    Someone commented at this You Tube video that he said this in 2001, before 9/11. Yasir Qadhi says he’s had an attitude adjustment since then. I’m inclined to give him the benefit of the doubt until I find out when he said this and find out more about him.

    I was a stone, cold racist once upon a time and I know that people do change.

    PS I like your comment feature. Beats the hell out of Facebook where you can be censored on other pages if you’re blocked on Facebook. And the fascists at Yahoo who block conservative comments and won’t let you post links.

  19. You know what? I missed the “update” after the article. But he may be right. Listen to the video and it actually SOUNDS cut up.

    Almost as bad as Muslims are those who feel they have to embellish anything when it comes to this horrible religion which this dumb-ass construction worker has been studying for almost four years.

    I’m going to dismiss this as a hoax until I see otherwise.

  21. Stupid. He is explaining the Koran verses and prophet’s words.

  24. Look to the east

    Quran followers,Talmud followers, Pope followers, Elephant followers, Politician followers, Party followers, socialists, communists, atheists, and the apathetic…when you see Yeshua Hamashiach coming in the glory of Father God Almighty, with innumerable legions of angels with Him, all the lies people have believed will be over – forever. If you are not yet looking to Jesus, now is the time, today is the day.
    He alone is the perfect lamb of God Savior and there is no other. He paid for our wrongs in His blood. He is the glory of Israel, and light to the Gentiles.


  25. I don’t believe in anything of a God. In my eye’s the closest human being resembling any kind of a so called God, would be Bruce Springsteen.
    If those idiotic rantings by Qadhi can be substantiated with undoubted evidence, one of two thing’s should happen to him.

    1- Arrested for making speeches of hatred and have his passport confiscated for deportation back to his country of origin.

    2- Arrested and placed into detention for mental analysis, and if deemed necessary, sectioned under the mental health act, for the criminaly insane.


  26. Great, but we don’t live in lallah land.


  27. Islime is a disease similar to cancer, which must be eradicated or it will consume the world. Anyone who reads the koran (may pig feces be upon it) and evaluates the words there, at least those that are intelligible, must admit that islime is a lie created by a loser, moohammed, who was mad at the world for being thrown away by his parents. That anger fueled his psychosis which lead to him creating the lie of islime so that he could take revenge on the world.

    It is nothing more than a satanic inspired cult, though it is a cult with immense power over ignorant people largely based on fear, that fear being either one converts to islime or they are murdered with any property, including wives and children who islime considers property, to be taken by the murdering muslime animals.

    In the end, either islime is eradicated or it will conquer the world, murdering or enslaving all non muslimes. It is an easy choice for me to make as I will never accept slavery under ANY power on earth.


  28. Is he still an Iman/Professor at Rhodes College in Tennessee, teaching lies to all. If they are Christian or Muslim he is lying to them. In his http://muslimmatters.org/2013/07/03/clarification-and-notice/; the Iman/Professor is lying. By saying he’s not preaching or teaching that it ok for Muslims to kill and steal from all infidels who refuse to convert. That is a lie against Islam and Allah and goes against the Holy Qu’ran. Which is a sin and punishable by death as false teachings. That also makes it a lie to other religions because he is say that Islam is now tolerate if all religions. If that was the case why are all the Muslim groups “extremist or not”, always making claims when acts of intolerance prelabeled and followed up with Praise Allah!
    I feel that what ever you believe in believe it. Don’t go back on anything you say or do unless you are truly repentive and have honestly changed. If you don’t feel you were wrong then you will bury Hate for others in your heart and soul which will surface in the future as racism and that will lead to an intolerant attitude of others. That’s what happens all the time now. We expect others to be tolerant of our beliefs while not being tolarent of theirs.
