Toronto Imam: Stephen Harper is an enemy of Islam, Muslims should hire only Muslims

Jonathan D. HaleviRebel Blogger

Shaykh Said Rageah (الشيخ سعيد راجح) was born in Somalia and in the late 80sn moved to North America. Rageah has a Bachelor’s in Islamic studies and a Masters in Shari’ah and he has had several posts over the years, including: founder of Masjid Huda in Montreal and Masjid Aya in Maryland, advisor for Muslim Youth magazine, and member in the Aqsa Association.

He is also the founder of both Muslim Magazine and Al Aqsa Association, and served as the Chaplain at both the University of Calgary and the Southern Alberta Institute of Technology (SAIT). He served as an Imam at the Abu Hurairah Mosque in Toronto, the Chairman for the Journey of Faith Conference and as an instructor for the AlMaghrib Institute.

In a sermon delivered at Abu Hurairah Centre in Toronto (the video was uploaded to YouTube on February 8, 2009), Imam Rageah called on Canadian Muslims to unite and translate their demography into a political and economic power that is necessary to make the government allow Muslims to implement the Islamic Law (Sharia) in their communities and to change the foreign policy.

Rageah spoke in favour of following the example of the Sikh neighbourhood in Edmonton, Alberta, by bringing the Muslim community to live together in one area in which the authorities will not be able to make any decision without the approval of the Muslims.

He urges Muslims to hire only Muslim workers, to buy products or services only from Muslim-owned businesses and to avoid advertising with media outlets owned by kafir, meaning unbeliever or infidel. In this way, he maintained, Canadian Muslims can strengthen themselves and live according to Islam.

The following is a transcript of segments from Rageah’s sermon:

“With four, five [hundred] thousand Muslims you can create the most powerful lobby in Canada… with that number of Muslims you can create one of the strongest Muslim business in Toronto…

“If you just put our resources, if we put our resources together, if we can work together as an Ummah [Muslim nation] we can change a lot…

“As Muslims, we are scattered all over the city. You have people living in Brampton, you have people living in Mississauga, you have people living in Whitby, you have people living in Richmond Hill. Imagine if we all get together in one area.

In the City of Edmonton, the Sikh, Sikh, they live in one neighbourhood and nothing can be changed or done without their approval. We here we may as well benefit from the system that they have here.

“What can you do with unity? A lot. You can change a lot. You can change the foreign policy of this country. You can change how the Muslims think. You can even when need help, when you need help you call Muslim for your need you will help the Muslim community…

“Brothers in the masjid [Mosque] right now, they are coming up with the magazine or newspaper called Ummah Times. What Ummah Times is that? Ummah Times is advertising all your businesses all the Muslim businesses [are] Ummah.

“All you need to do – I will never advertise with a kafir [unbeliever, infidel], there you go.

“I hear some advertisements giving to 680 News $5,000. Before your Muslim brothers $50 and $80 or $100 we think twice before we do it.

“Unless we work together, the day we need a truck driver we know where to find truck drivers.

The day that I need a cab I should have a number of a Muslim cab it’s ok, pick me up.

When I wan to see a doctor, only Muslim doctor.

When I want to hire someone only Muslim worker.

Then we can strengthen ourselves. This is the way and this is the only way we can exist in the society, living according to Islam.

“When the Sharia [Islamic Law], when the government of Toronto, Ontario gave us a break and said: deal your internal affairs based on your Sharia [Islamic Law] we did not go and say: Those few people are Ismailis and Ahmadis, they are not even Muslims. Why would they speak on behalf of Muslims. But, we say no, we keep quiet and see and watch what happens, and then the result was that they said… we will never allow you to rule yourselves, your internal affairs based on the Shariah…

“My brothers in faith [اخوتي في الله], anything that happens in your Muslim community, in the City of Toronto, anything that can be done, five hundred thousand Muslims that is a great number, large number, you can do a lot, work together. Let’s be an Ummah [nation]

Take your children to Islamic schools.

Take your vehicle to Muslim owned business.

If you buy a vehicle make sure there is a Muslim business or car dealer that sells cars.

If you want to do anything just ask if that individual is a Muslim or not. If he is not, then look for a Muslim, because I’m sure you’ll find a Muslim. I’m sure you’ll find a Muslim in that field…

“O Allah, Raise the standing of Islam and the Muslims [اللهم اعز الاسلام والمسلمين], and humiliate the infidels and the polytheists.” [اذل الكفرة والمشركين]


Rageah visiting Sweden: refugees should spread Islam in hosting country

In his recent visit to Sweden, Rageah met with Muslim youths apparently sons and daughters of refugees from the Middle East who resettled with their families in a small Swedish village.

Rageah explained to the Muslim youths the obligation upon them to follow the teachings of Islam and also the importance of playing a leading role in introducing Islam to the local society in order to spread Islam in their new community.

The following are excerpts of Rageah’s speech (posted on YouTube on December 8, 2015):

“Why do you think Allah brought you here? Why do you think Allah brought your parents and they brought you here?

“Do you think because there was a civil war back home and they had nowhere else to go, and now all of the sudden they came to Sweden to this small village that I cannot even pronounce its name? Do you think they came here accidentally?

“No. It was designed by Almighty Allah. It was designed that you perhaps can be born and raised here, so you can carry the message of Islam to your own community, to the Swedish community, because maybe your father when he is speaking Swedish he has an accent, maybe your mother when she is speaking she has an accent. Maybe they don’t understand the culture of the people.

Perhaps Allah brought you here so you can adapt, understand, analyze, read and learn the culture of the people and then in return you come back and give them the light of Islam

“Unfortunately a lot of young ladies and a lot of young boys, or young men, they think they were brought here so they can have fun, they can listen to music, they can shovel the snow that their father never have seen before, they can make a snow man in front of their houses, they can slide down the hill. This is not the reason.

The reason that Allah brought you here is so you can can carry the message of Islam to the people. Why? Because each one of us, Almighty Allah [said] call to the way of your Lord (ادعوا الى سبيل ربك ). So your responsibility is to call people to Allah.”

Rageah: Stephen Harper is an “enemy of Islam”

Rageah, an Imam at the Abu Hurairah Mosque in Toronto and an instructor for the AlMaghrib Institute, sees Prime Minister Harper as an enemy of Islam. The following is an excerpt (25:20-26:59) of his speech at Assalam Mosque in Ottawa in 2012 (the video was uploaded to YouTube on September 12, 2012):

If one of us was invited by the Prime Minister of this country [Stephen Harper] and he says: ‘I’ll give you a special invitation, exclusive invitation, come to my house, have dinner with me, chat with me, sit with me, talk to me, I’ll talk to you.’ I guarantee you, everyone of you will come out of that meeting raising his head with pride, so proud of himself, so pleased, you know, twitting every second: O I’m sitting with the Prime Minister [Stephen Harper], you know, you know, putting on Facebook: This is my picture with the Prime Minister [Stephen Harper], you know, and you’ll brag on that day and night. Every single moment when someone says: Peace be upon you, (السلام عليكم), O do you know I was just chatting with the Prime Minister [Stephen Harper]. When Someone says: ‘How are the children?’ ‘His house is excellent.’ Your life will be nothing but him, and he [Stephen Harper] is the enemy of Islam. He [Stephen Harper] is an enemy of Islam. I guarantee you, we go to him right now, and he is the man who said, you know, the threat of this country is Islamism. All of us would say: ‘Mister Prime Minister, can we take a picture with you?’ We are so proud of that, because it is the human nature, but Allah is telling you: ‘Stay with me every night.’ Seclusion (خلوة) with Allah we don’t care. We don’t care. The voluntary prayer during the night (قيام الليل) is a conversation (نجوة) between you and Allah, no one else.”

Rageah did not elaborate in his speech what is the Islamic ruling regarding an “enemy of Islam.” In previous speech (February 2012) at the University of Waterloo as part of the Islamic Awareness Week organized by the local Muslim Students Association (MSA) and partially funded by the university, Rageah implicitly justified the death penalty for apostates and those who insult the prophets.

Imam Ahmed Qandeel, member of the supreme council of Quebec imams, explained in the weekly Friday (May 12, 2013) sermon at Alrawdah Mosque in Montreal, the Islamic ruling regarding Muslims who became enemies of Islam. The following is an excerpt of his sermon (originally in Arabic):

The second case deals with a person who fights against Allah and His messenger and joined a vile group. His verdict will not be a regular execution. His verdict will be identical to the punishment for banditry. ‘Indeed, the penalty for those who wage war against Allah and His Messenger and strive upon earth [to cause] corruption is none but that they be killed or crucified or that their hands and feet be cut off from opposite sides.’ [Quran 5:33]. This is the difference between them. The first will be asked to repent and the second will be killed immediately without repentance or asking him to repent…”

If Harper is an enemy for lowing 500,00 muslims into the country, then what does that make PM Sonnywaze for cutting the numbers back?

This jerk has a Saudi hand up his butt working his mouth for him.

I think, we the people need to go after these imams for preaching hatred and inciting murder, since the politicians and police can’t seem to do their jobs, do to cowardice.

Headlines from Eurabia – and more coming – despite the national laws not allowing this to be made public by the media it is coming out all over the place.

And people wonder why I am a jaded and pissed off veteran.

I lived in Syria – I know what we are up against.

Oil up your firearms and hide them – there will come a day you will be happy you did.

I hope Stephen Harper is an enemy of Islam. I’m an enemy of Islam…… because I sincerely believe Islam is wrong. That doesn’t mean I’m an enemy of the Muslim people, at least not unless they deliberately set out to be MY enemy. As a Christian, I believe God loves everyone and Jesus died for everyone…. including Muslims. And if they’re good enough for Jesus to die for, they’re good enough for me. But I constantly hope and pray that they see the truth and leave the Satanic cult of Islam. However, if they choose not to, and attack me or any other innocents, be it physically, verbally or through any quasi-legal avenues, I will fight back. So I am definitely an enemy of Islam

Deborah Graupner commented 24 mins ago, “I’ve seen this guy standing outside of Timmy’s, across the street from one their terrorist-in-training centers. He’s very tall and skinny and has this arrogant look on his face. I guess because he’s so tall he feels superior, as he looks down on us infidels.”

Not so, Deborah, He looks down on us because he’s Muslim and believes he has received the perfect word from Allah (via the Angel Gabriel to Mohammed), and because we Infidels haven’t. It’s all about who has received the perfect word from God and who hasn’t. That’s a reason why moderate Muslims are afraid to speak out. Who can argue with God’s perfect word?

At the start of the Comments I suggested that the existence of this issue (comments and ideas presented by Imam Rageah) were “Supported and encouraged by our Federal and Provincial Governments.” From the Comments that followed it would seem that Q. E. D. or quod erat demonstrandum as the scientists say. No consequence or response to this issue is a de facto permission and encouragement to proceed.

A street runs both ways . He advocates that Muslims hire only Muslims . I think that’s a great idea . I think employers ( the kiffar) should hire only non-Muslims which is not a bad idea . My son’s electrical contracting company hired a black fellow who was ( still is ) a Muslim. He was so useless they fired after 2 weeks . He yelled that they were racist and were firing him because he was black. The boss said " No , we hired you because you are black and needed a job. We’re firing you because you’re f*cking useless.". He filed a Human Rights complaint but it was thrown out .

DEBORAH GRAUPNER, “I for one don’t trust our governments on any level. They have all been overcome by the evil of Islam, and are nothing but yellow-bellied cowards for not standing against Islam”. While you touched on it with another post with reference to “our Marxist governments”, this has nothing to do with cowardice or ignorance by the left, but by design.
In this video, “The Leftist Islamic Alliance”, Jamie Glazov and Robert Spencer (Jihad Watch) discussed why the leftists are actively enabling and collaborating with Islamic terrorist groups:
Glazov was born into a family of Russian dissidents, and knows first-hand the importance of fighting against tyranny and oppression. The answer was provided early in their conversation. They, the leftists and the Islamists, both share an authoritarian totalitarian ideology and want to destroy their host western civilization. They hate capitalism, free enterprise, individuals, freedom and liberty. The leftists are enabling our enemy in order to cripple our western civilization, to bring about their classless socialist utopia on this earth. The jihadists want their sharia utopia. Both utopias have to be built on the ashes of the system that they want to destroy, a common objective they share. The enemy of my enemy is my friend, the old adage goes.

Daryl Herman commented, and this isn’t “citing Hatred” towards a people or group??? http://pamelageller.com/

Well, Daryl, if people weren’t doing hateful things, nobody would feel hatred, would they?
Are you suggesting that true facts cannot be revealed on Pamela Geller’s website but only on the MSM websites, where for example, beheadings and other atrocities by ISIL are shown? Where Muslim women are shown being stoned? Where Muslim bloggers are shown being lashed? It’s OK for them to so it but when Pamela Geller does it, you consider it citing hatred?

Everybody knows that old definition of insanity, ‘Someone doing the same thing, over and over again and expecting it to work’. From this I can only come to the conclusion, that people who vote Liberal are all Bat Sht Crazy. How many times have they voted the Liberals into power and expected them to improve our situation and then found that the Liberals did exactly the opposite?

This is why we have people like this idiot in Canada. This ‘Low Life specimen of humanity’ (I am being polite) is in Canada for one reason and that is to destroy it and us. When are the Liberal voters of Canada going to wake up?

Rageah is not just a Hate Preacher, he is also a Preacher of Jihad. Those who follow the dogma of Islam will have no problem taking his advice but he should be Jailed as a Traitor to Western Civilization, this of course will never happen, it would be considered Islamophobic and racist.

Now we have our latest Liberal mistake (over and over again) in power, an idiot who is importing 50,000 of his Muslim brothers in 2016 and probably 100,000 in 2017 and will keep on until Canada is completely overrun with these parasites and the majority of real Canadians no longer exist.

There is one alternative! Think about it.
commented 2016-01-08 14:37:53 -0500
Not sure why Rageah says that Harper is an enemy of Islam since according to Ezra, he brought about 500,000 Muslims into Canada. But what he preaches is exactly how it should go if you want your religion to take over. The idea is for Muslims to create a political majority, so they can begin to change our laws to suit themselves. He advises to support Muslims businesses only. Anjem Choudary, a Muslim political activist in the UK has taken it one step further by calling on Muslims there to go on welfare, in order to weaken the state. Apparently, he pulls in the equivalent of $38,000.00 a year in welfare payments for his family. He has been caught on tape saying, “We are populating Europe and being paid on welfare to do it.” So there are all sorts of ways to try to take over.

Andrea Horvath sent a letter out recently, stating that she has joined the Canadian Arab Federation along with some other groups and is asking for support for an Ontario Anti Racism Secretariat. Perhaps it will come to a place where, like in several European countries, we will not be allowed to say what we are on here today because it will be illegal and construed as racism.

Elton Braun – the problem is that those in our legal system have the same mental defects due to their ideology and their own greed, as our current crop of Marxist politicians, and they have been doing pretty much what they want to do, by overriding the laws created by our elected officials, and more specifically, any law created and passed by the conservative government. I say that we the public outnumber our government by literally millions, and should we decide to congregate, they will be scared poopless! Until we Canadians stand as group against these traitors, things will continue to get worse.

We can scream and rant about deporting and banning and laying charges all we want but we all know that for reasons like Peter Toth has stated, no one will listen and there certainly are no politicians with the courage to stand up to these traitors. Maybe what we could do is start a serious organized effort to actually have shariah law declared illegal in Canada. The problem though is every time one government in power makes a new law, the next one comes in and annuls it with a stoke of a pen. Contrary to Trudeaus’ bs implying we have too many referendums, maybe it’s time to start having some.

P G- Braid in the Calgary Herald wrote the reentry articles for Deborah Drever. His articles were quite pathetic and he never told both sides of the story, in order to make her salvageable in the publics eyes. Unfortunately it didn’t work for those of us who know the truth. I’ve lost all respect for him now for writing those misleading articles. The NDP have been working overtime to have her back into the fold. I hope she chokes on all that money, because she doesn’t deserve a dime of it. She will be tossed in the next election, a long with her lying misfit party.

“It is amazing how Canadians will group together for common good and decency to protect ourselves, our families and our neighbours from evil. Trudeau, his Liberal dolts and Islam are the dividers, not WE the true Canadians.”

I agree Sue, real Canadians are not dividers, but our Marxist governments have to divide to conquer. I will never buy the evil they are selling. And if God hands me over to them to be murdered for speaking his truth, then I will endure, and pray that the God of Israel takes revenge on them for what they are doing, and I know that he will. Let’s just keep the faith and await our Lord’s return. For I am certain that it won’t be long now before he returns to judge the living and the dead.
