ICNA Canada’s online syllabus: pregnant adulteress to be stoned after giving birth

Jonathan D. HaleviRebel Blogger

ICNA (Islamic Circle of North America) Canada is an Islamic nationalwide organization striving “to build an Exemplary Canadian Muslim Community” by “total submission to Him [Allah] and through the propagation of true and universal message of Islam.”

Located at 391 Burnhamthorpe Rd., East, Oakville, Ontario, ICNA Canada emphasizes that “the propagation of true and universal message of Islam is only possible in Canada when whole Canadian Muslim Community transformed into a Dawah community by practicing and propagating the true Islamic Way of Life. With the vision of building an exemplary Canadian Muslim community it is very important to spread the word of Islam…”

Zunera Ishaq, the woman that stood at the centre of the “niqab debate” in the Canadian election campaign, works/ed for the Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA).

On its official website ICNA Canada shares with its members, followers and supporters the book “Riyad us Saliheen” (“The Gardens of the Righteous” رياض الصالحين) compiled by Imam Zakaruya Yahya Bin Sharaf An-Nawawi, a Sunni Shafi’ite jurist and hadith scholar who lived in 13th century.

The Gardens of the Righteous (Arabic: Riyadh as-Salihin), is a compilation of verses from the Qur’an and hadith by Al-Nawawi. It contains a total of 1905 hadith divided across 372 chapters, many of which are introduced by verses of the Quran.

The book “Riyad us Saliheen” (“The Gardens of the Righteous”) which appears on ICNA Canada site adds modern commentary to the verses from the Qur’an and hadith.

The following are excerpts from the book which deal with the stoning of a pregnant adulteress:

[Hadith]: 22. Imran bin Al-Husain Al-Hhuza`i (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A woman from the tribe Juhainah came to Messenger of Allah (PBUH) while she was pregnant from (Zina) adultery and said to him: “O Messenger of Allah! I have committed an offense liable to Hadd (prescribed punishment), so exact the execution of the sentence.” Messenger of Allah (PBUH) called her guardian and said to him, “Treat her kindly. Bring her to me after the delivery of the child.” That man complied with the orders. At last the Prophet (PBUH) commanded to carry out the sentence. Her clothes were secured around her and she was stoned to death. The Prophet (PBUH) led her funeral prayers. `Umar submitted: “O Messenger of Allah! She committed Zina and you have performed funeral prayer for her?” He replied, “Verily, she made repentance which would suffice for seventy of the people of Al- Madinah if it is divided among them. Can there be any higher degree of repentance than that she sacrificed her life voluntarily to win the Pleasure of Allah, the Exalted?”.


Commentary: This Hadith highlights the following five points:

l. It confirms the validity of the punishment of Rajm [stoning] for the adulterer, that is to say that he should be stoned to death.

2. The merit of sincere pardon.

3. The description of fear of Allah as well as of accountability on the Day of Resurrection by the Prophet’s Companions, and their preference for punishment of sins in this world rather than in the Hereafter.

4. It is permissible to perform the funeral prayer of one who has been guilty of major sins, provided he has not been taking them as lawful because in that case there is danger of disbelief..

5. A pregnant woman cannot be punished with Rajm until she gives birth to the child and the period specified for suckling the baby is completed.”


[Hadith]: 913. `Imran bin Husain (May Allah be pleased with them) reported: A woman belonging to the Juhainah tribe came to the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) after having conceived from Zina. She submitted: “O Messenger of Allah! I am liable to Hadd (punishment ordained by Allah), so execute it.” The Messenger of Allah (PBUH) called her guardian and said, “Treat her well and bring her to me after delivery.” He acted accordingly. Then the Messenger of Allah (PBUH) commanded to tie her clothes firmly around her and then stoned her to death. He (PBUH) then offered funeral prayer for her. [Muslim].

Commentary: This Hadith has relevance to the theme of the chapter as we see it. Moreover, it reveals that if a woman becomes pregnant after committing adultery, she will not be subjected to punishment immediately. Instead, the penalty [stoning] will take place after childbirth. This will certainly contribute to the remission of her sins and will also be a factor in offering the funeral prayer for her.

The act of stoning is also a “purification for the believer”

Sheikh Faisal Hamid Abdur-Razak (الشيخ فيصل حميد عبد الرزاق), a well known Imam in Brampton, Ontario, who also serves as President of the Islamic Forum of Canada and Vice-President of the Islamic Council of Imams of Canada, said in a sermon few years ago the following:

“Even in Islamic Sharia [Law] the act of stoning is also done to reject certain evil actions, evil deeds. If someone commits certain crimes in Islam, and he is found guilty by an Islamic court, one of the punishments is stoning to death, signifying our rejection of evil actions as well.”

“But there is something else; there is something else that the stoning does to the believer. For Iblis [satan], for the Shaytan [satan], is rejecting him [refers to one of the rituals during the annual Islamic Hajj pilgrimage to the holy city of Mecca, in which Muslim pilgrims fling pebbles at three walls signifying the stoning of the devil] and rejecting his attempt to influence us.”

“But for the believer there is an important benefit. Someone in the time of the Prophet, peace be upon him, committed an immoral act, which requires stoning, came to the Prophet, peace be upon him, and confessed the Prophet, peace be upon him, and the Prophet kept turning away from him, Glorious is Allah, as he didn’t want to hear it.”

“But the companion [صحابي] he knew he had done something wrong, he kept going in front of the Prophet, peace be upon him, [and said]: ‘O Messenger of Allah [يا رسول الله] I did this, I must be punished. The Prophet, peace be upon him, kept turning away, moving away from him, as he didn’t want to hear this and the companion [صحابي] ] kept persisting, going and walking in front of the Prophet [saying]: ‘O Messenger of Allah [يا رسول الله] I did this, I must be punished.”

“And finally the Prophet ordered that he will be stoned to death. And this was done, and the Prophet, peace be upon him, ordered that he will be prepared for [an Islamic] funeral [جنازة] and the Prophet himself prayed [in] his funeral [جنازة]. He [Mohammad] told his companions: ‘he is in heaven [جنة], he is purified, he is purified’. So, this act of stoning now [meaning as is learnt from this story] is also purification for the believer.”

Showing kindness to one facing death sentence”

The following is a excerpt of Sheikh Faisal Hamid Abdur-Razak’s book: The Book of Death:


“5.1 Imran bin Husain (May Allah be pleased with him) reported: A woman belonging to the Juhaina tribe came to Allah’s Messenger peace be upon him (PBUH) and she had become pregnant as a result of fornication. She submitted: O Messenger of Allah! PBUH, I have done something for which punishment must be imposed upon me, so impose that. Allah’s Messenger PBUH called her guardian and said: Treat her well and bring her to me after delivery. He acted accordingly. Then Allah’s Messenger PBUH commanded to tie her clothes firmly around her and then stone her to death. He then offered her funeral prayer. (MUSLIM)”

Anyone who believes anything to do with religion is a retard. Especially Islam. They make the full on Christians look like pussy willows. Islam is the fucking worst death cult going. Fuck them and all who believe in that shit hole religion. Christians, i told you to fuck off at my door ages ago and you did so. Thank you. You are now forgiven for trying to convert me to your perversion. Islam, you are a fucking bunch of retarded monkeys trying to use modern ways to enforce ancient laws. Fuck you to death and may a missile terminate your useless fucking lives. You are not worth a maggot on this planet. Fuck Islam and those who want to impose it on us all.

Sean, regarding your argument of separating church and state, maybe pay attention to my post here: the one major flaw, and it’s a biggie, is the sharia laws regarding people who leave islam. It’s punishable by death, in any version of islam you wish to look at. The young ladies who died at the hands of their father and (aunt?) in Ontario a few years ago were trying to leave islam, look what happened. By your logic, answer me this: were those girls muslim, or Canadian? If they were muslim and not Canadian, why did they have citizenship and why did they live here? If they were Canadian first and muslim second, tell me why they had to die? Extrapolate that a bit further: how many Jews are in Iran? How many Jehovah’s Witnesses, for that matter? You can’t have it both ways. Their holy books demand that everyone follows islamic rule, or dies, and that every muslim must do whatever it takes to make that happen. Not everyone in Iran, not everyone in Saudi Arabia, not even everyone in Great Britain, but everyone, everywhere. Sharia law is all-encompassing, don’t fool yourself into thinking it only applies to matters of religion.

All i have to say is it takes two to have a baby and in a rape culture common. Christians are not perfect but next to this were saints. And this Islam thinks it will win something when death and slavery is all they have and will ever see. If god wants you dead it happens he does not need you to do it and if he does he is not god.

Bravo they are deluded and think it will not affect them, they are in for a really rude awakening.

Nathan FGM is against the law in the UK , it still happens and without charges.
Happens in Canada too – even lefty Huff Post admits to it.

Quote – “What shocked us in talking to Drs. Shaw and Davis was discovering FGM is a serious issue in Canada, too.” End Quote


You bring them in and we pay and pay and pay – but some would have you believe it is not our problem.

Sean Penson its the laissez faire attitude that your type is truly mystifying. In one sentence you have dismissed about 900 years of struggle for our society to raise above oppression. And you don’t give a shit about the sacrifices made.

So if a woman screws another dude she gets rocks thrown at her till she dies, but a man can take as many wives as he wants? You can’t stone a pregnant woman but you can force a child to grow up with out a mother? The devil is some sort of supernatural force but some how throwing ordinary old rocks at him makes him go away? How low does your IQ have to be to believe in this shit?

The only way to stop this Islamic dogma, is to stop Trudeau and then deport every Muslim out of Canada, If they were born here, that’s OK, It dose not matter how many generations the family of a Muslim has lived in a foreign land, they are still citizens of their forefathers.

Justin Trudeau should take note. The UK is changing the rules for Muslim Migrants. A new Immigrant who has not found a job within six months of arrival, will be deported. A new Immigrant cannot draw any social benefits until he has resided in the UK for four years.

That’s against the law in Canada. So … what’s the story?

Shall we also report on Christian groups which promote Biblical law as something that should be the law of the law? The Bible orders similar treatment, and perhaps even more draconian in not even waiting for delivery of the baby to engage in the stoning.

Honestly, this is outrageously wrong from the modern day perspective, but it was also an unambiguous improvement over existing Jewish or Christian scriptural law.

I have cleaned up after a couple of these – if we had arrived sooner we could have prevented them

It is coming to Canada

We already have honour killings, FGM, sale of little girls to old me and more……

Seems the islamic pm supports this.

When will mainstream media report on this?

If normal decent Christians “proselytized” like we are being by these Muslim barbarians – they would be hauled through the corrupt judicial system now presiding over the west civilization!
This needs stopping before we reach the extent of the Jihad waging in the east. The rhetoric of the west being tolerant to this barbaric way has gone far enough! I will not be tolerant to the preaching of that asshole Muhammad or his allah.
It is time we purge ourselves of the scourge of politicians and imams preaching this tolerance & multiculturalism or should it be multi-cultism!

Darcy Hoefling – Islam will lose in the end! We haven’t even begun to fight back yet. It will be the people that will rise up, not our governments. Our governments are conspiring with the enemy now, and in the end good will prevail.

Regardless of belief, there is doctrine of this nature in ALL major religions. The problem is that islam is not just a belief. It is a way of life. It reaches into every aspect of a muslim’s life by way of muhammed and allah. People need to wake up to the modern day jihad, of the mouth, the pen and the sword. Fundamental islamists know that there is no need for “war” when they can incrementally destroy the fruits and foundations of democracy through the use of democracy and political correctness. And I hate to say it, we (as in society and government) are falling for this crap. At the current understandings of islam, North America will fall to sharia. Europe is already there………
