In a sermon disseminated via social media, Jamaican Sheikh Abdullah Al-Faisal, who spent four years in a U.K. prison for murder and inciting hatred before being deported, called to hang former Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi, saying that doing so would convey the message that "the way forward is not the ballot, the way forward is the bullet." Criticizing peaceful interpretations of Quranic verses that claim that Jihad means to do da'wa, Al-Faisal, whose original name was Trevor William Forrest, further said: "When shari'a comes to a country, you have to kill all the homosexuals." His February 26 sermon was uploaded to a YouTube channel belonging to Umm Thalaatha.
Abdullah Al-Faisal: How can you get a kick in the teeth with democracy in Algeria in 1998, and then you got a kick in the teeth with democracy again in Egypt in 2013? If they hang Morsi, it is good for the Islamic nation. Do you know why? Because he was a fitna for the Muslims. When he came to power with democracy, many Muslims said: "Look, the way forward is democracy. many Muslims said: "Look, the way forward is democracy. These are modern times - the 21st century.
We don't need to wage Jihad anymore. The way forward is not the bullet.
The way forward is the ballot. Just drop a paper in the box and win,
and then you can bring in your Islam and your shari'a. You don't need to wage Jihad. That's outdated." That was their narrative
and their rhetoric.
So Morsi was a fitna for Muslims who were ignorant -the ignoramus, unsuspecting Muslims who don't know anything about Islam.
So when they hang Morsi - if they hang Morsi - they send a strong message to the nation of Muhammad that the way forward is not the ballot,
the way forward is the bullet. That is the only method that the Prophet taught us.
This is the conduct adopted by the Tablighi Jamaat. They believe that
you should only do da'wa. I have been with them on many "40 days," and they reinterpret all the verses of Jihad. When Allah said: "Fight Jihad in the path of Allah with your wealth and your persons," They said that the word "Jihad" means to struggle, so what Allah meant is that you should do da'wa. So go to India and Pakistan for four months and give da'wa - that is what Allah meant. Allah does not mean the physical fight in the battlefield. So the Tablighi Jamaat lie on Allah, and they reinterpret all the verses of Jihad to mean da'wa, and this is called
lying on Allah. If you lie on the Prophet, it makes you an infidel, and if you lie on Allah deliberately, it makes you an infidel as well.
I have to speak the truth: When shari'a comes to a country, you have to kill all the homosexuals. I cannot change Islam to please and appease the infidels.
