Australian Salafi scholar Wissam "Abu Ousayd" Haddad said in a Friday, April 14, 2023 sermon in Sydney, Australia that the Muslims are sitting idly by while Muslims in Kashmir are being killed by the "worshippers of cows and monkeys" and while Muslims in Palestine "cry out to be saved from the descendants of pigs and monkeys [i.e. the Jews]." He also said that one of the reasons that the Muslims were defeated by the Mongols was because Muslim scholars at the time had "spent so much time in their books" that they abandoned Jihad. The sermon, which was titled "The Month of Victory", was uploaded to the Al-Madina Dawah Centre YouTube channel.
Wissam "Abu Ousayd" Haddad: "Oh nation of Muhammad, come alive, Kashmir is bleeding. Muslims are being killed at the hands of the worshippers of cows and monkeys, and the Muslims remain silent. Hindus today openly threaten Muslims. They openly swear to invade our lands of Mecca and Medina, inciting one another to do this, and we sit idle, even afraid to speak up against them.
"Our beloved Jerusalem cries out year after year, as the Israeli forces, year after year, invade Al-Aqsa, especially in Ramadan, and they oppress the Muslims in this month, yet the Muslims remain idle. The Muslims of Palestine cry out to be saved from the descendants of pigs and monkeys — but no one responds.
"The issue of Palestine will never end with humanitarian aid alone.
"Ibn Umar narrates from the Messenger Muhammad that he said: 'When you partake in usury, in interest, and hold to the tails of cattle, become satisfied with cultivation, and you abandon jihad, Allah will send upon you humiliation, and will not remove it until you turn back to your religion.'
"As I said, my dear brothers, the Companions were known to be worshippers at night and warriors by day. So let us follow their way, as their way is the best of ways.
"My dear brothers, know that one of the reasons the Mongols were able to defeat the Muslims, even though at that time... we learned and have been told that this was the Golden Age of Islam, when the Muslims at that time were able to excel scientifically at so many things. So much so that we celebrate the glass or the camera today, saying that it came from them. One of the things that led to their destruction is that they spent so much time in their books, and they left the fighting on the path of Allah."
