On February 5, 2016, the Alberta Islamic Welfare Association hosted a Family Day event for Syrian refugees and their families, along with members of the local Muslim community in Edmonton and the Imam Shaban Sherif Mady.
In his speech to the Syrian 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 of 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.”
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.
As previously reported at TheRebel.media, the same Shaban Sherif Mady dedicated his Friday sermon on December 18, 2015 to Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, whom he sees as the greatest ally of the Muslims.
