Egyptian Researcher, Sentenced for Criticizing Islamic Jurisprudents: I’m Criticizing Their Ideology

On November 25, 2021, BBC Arabic (U.K.) aired an interview with Egyptian lawyer, researcher, and writer Ahmed Abdou Maher, who was recently sentenced to five years in Egyptian prison for criticizing Islam in his book, How the Imams’ Jurisprudence Is Leading the Nation Astray. Maher told the interviewer that his book doesn’t have one word of extremism, blasphemy, or incitement against Islam, and that it only criticizes Islam’s jurisprudents for their “blood-soaked ideology.” He criticized Islamic scholars that follow Maliki, Bukhai, Safi’i, Hanafi, and other schools of Islamic thought, saying that they espouse the killing of apostates, homosexuals, adulterers, people who don’t pray, people who curse the Prophet Muhammad, and prisoners of war. He also said that they espouse punishments such as the chopping of people’s limbs and beheading people.

Abdou Maher elaborated that the jurisprudents who adhere to these schools of thought consider anything that is outside of their “box” to be heresy, and he said that they have the ears of people in Egypt’s judicial system and are trying to turn Egypt into a religious state. He said that these schools of thought do not have a monopoly on what Islam is, and that Egypt’s president should declare that he is innocent. Abdou Maher also bemoaned the fact that there are many terrorist organizations and that Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Libya, and Afghanistan have all been destroyed.

Michigan Islamic Scholar: Aafia Siddiqui – an Icon of Muslim Women Held Unjustly in Prison [Video]

On September 18, 2021, a video was uploaded to a YouTube channel called "Shaikh Jibril" in which Michigan Islamic scholar Sheikh Ahmad Musa Jibril praised Aafia Siddiqui, a Pakistani neuroscientist who is serving an 86-year prison sentence at Federal Medical Center, Carswell in Fort Worth, Texas for attempted murder of U.S. military personnel and who is known for her post-9/11 affiliation with Al-Qaeda and Islamists. Sheikh Jibril said that in the past, capturing women was considered a declaration of war, and that Muslim leaders would “eradicate towns off the face of the earth” when such a thing happened. He said that Muslims should never abandon their brothers or sisters in a time of need, and that Siddiqui is an “icon for the plight of Muslim women held unjustly in prisons all over the globe.” In addition, Sheikh Jibril said that the Islamic justice system is just and moral, while in the American justice system, a jury comprised of "crackheads" and "meth addicts" convicts people. Furthermore, Sheikh Jibril said that U.S. authorities remove Muslim children from their homes in order to turn them into polytheists. The Shaikh Jibril YouTube channel is purportedly managed by Sheikh Jibril's students.
