In a Friday, January 28, 2022 sermon at Muslim Youth Victoria, Canadian Imam Younus Kathrada said that non-Muslims fight against Islam and are afraid of it because they know that "Islam is superior." He said that non-Muslims know that if Muslims adhere to Islam, this would mean their "demise" and the rise to dominance of Islam. He added that the opponents of Islam believe in the Islamic texts predicting that Islam will rule the world even more than Muslims do, and that this is the reason that they label Islam as backwards and oppressive. For more about Sheikh Younus Kathrada, see MEMRI TV Clips Nos. 9256, 9050, 8878, 8409, 8289, 8003, 7896, 7534, 7098, 6950, and 6906.

Younus Kathrada: "And Islam is superior over all other religions, although those who associate others with Allah, detest that. They don't want Islam to prevail over all religion.


"You know when I look at these verses... When I read them and when I ponder these hadith of the Prophet, it becomes so clear to me why the non-Muslims are actively fighting against Islam. Why they are afraid of Islam. It is as though they believe in these texts more than we do. They know for a fact, they know for a fact that Islam is superior. And they are afraid that you and I will now begin to adhere to Islam. That makes them scared. Because if we now start applying the laws of Allah in our lives — well, it means their demise. It means they will be defeated. The day we go back to the Quran, and the authentic Sunnah of the Prophet, that is the day Muslims will dominate. This is what they are afraid of. They are afraid of Islam.


"In this other Hadith, the Prophet tells us that the religion that is Islam will reach everywhere the night and day reach. In other words, there isn't a place on the face of this Earth, except that Islam will reach it.


"The opponents of Islam, they know these texts are true. It is as though they believe in them more than we ourselves believe in them. And this is why they tirelessly oppose Islam. Anything to do with the laws of Islam: 'Oh, this is backwards, this is not suited for this time and age, this is oppression,' and so on and so forth. We hear it, day in and day out."
