Taqiyya Alert: Manchester Bombing Imam Deception


The American mainstream media is currently complicit in promoting one of the bigger taqiyya scams I’ve seen in recent years. Perhaps you have heard of the 130 Imams who came together and ‘refused’ to give a traditional Islamic funeral prayer (known as Salat al-Janazah) for the suicide bomber at the Ariana Grande concert in Manchester, England. If you aren’t presently aware, the Muslim Council of Britain released an official statement that 130 Imams formed a united front and would not give prayers at the funeral of bomber Salman Ramadan Abedi because he is a “murderer.” Imam Qari Asim, the leader of Makkah Mosque in Leeds, said he would not give Abedi funeral prayers because the attacker “committed suicide”, which is forbidden in Islamic doctrine.

However, there is a serious problem with this reporting, and it is a problem the mainstream media was ethically bound to uncover by fact checking instead of spending their days drooling with Islamophillia. The problem with these statements is that Islamic law mandates funeral prayers for criminals, but prohibits them for martyrs. If these imams viewed the Abedi as a murderer, they would still be obligated under Islamic doctrine to give him funeral rites. Ladies and gentleman, we have uncovered lie #1. Further, Islamic law does forbid funeral prayers for Muslims who commit suicide; however, what the West refers to as ‘suicide bombers’ is not defined as suicide in the Quran or Hadiths — it’s actually defined as a form of honor known as martyrdom. Get your sharia bingo board out because here we have lie #2. None of the reasons the Imams stated for not giving funeral prayers for the attacker are based in truth. Rather, they are a cunning and calculated attempt to brainwash the West into believing that Islam is our friend. We have once again been #shariascammed.

Taquiyya is the Islamic doctrine of lying and deception. The Quran (16:106 and 3:28) allows Muslims to lie to non-believers in order to protect their reputation and the reputation of Islam as a whole. Muslims are especially expected to do this in foreign lands in order to make non-believers think the Islamic invaders are actually peaceful neighbors. That is, until there are enough Muslims to overtake the native population. This form of immigration jihad is referred to as hijrah, which we see happening across Europe. While hijrah is in it’s early stages, individual Muslims are encouraged to “to wage [violent] jihad whenever able.” (Bukhari, Sahih, vol. 1, p. 26; vol. 4, p. 41, 44-5.) In the case of the Manchester terrorist attack, Abedi followed the teachings of his Prophet Muhammed and acted in accordance with the Quran and Hadiths when he blew up non-believer women and children at a concert. He is viewed by Islamic doctrine as a martyr and therefore should not receive a funeral prayer because Muslims believe, in short, that the martyred is not dead; rather he is living with Allah (Q3:157-8, 169-171; 44:56.) But in order to protect the lie that Islam is the religion of peace (it’s not — Islam literally translated means submission. Muslims believe that once everyone submits to to Islam, there will be peace. The hitch is that they are allowed to murder anyone who doesn’t submit. Sounds serene, doesn’t it?) we see the now infamous 130 Imams deceiving the public into believing that they are ‘refusing’ to do a funeral prayer because they disagree with the attackers actions. 

Muslims believe that a traditional funeral prayer is an Islamic obligation that can only be refused by the Imam in rare exceptions. The reasoning behind refusing the funeral prayer in these rare exceptions is to bring mass awareness not to the sinner, but the sin itself. Funeral prayers are only refused when the person has separated themselves from the Muslim religion prior to death.  Alcoholic consumption, adultery, homosexuality, and murder do not separate one from their religion, but committing suicide or a denunciation of Islam are both viewed as the two acts of separation that do not deserve a traditional funeral prayer from an Imam.

According to the Muslim Public Affairs Council, for the death of a Muslim to be classified as suicide, the death must be a “central component and intention of the act and not just an almost certain consequence.” For example, Muslims reference a soldier falling on his sword in order to escape battle to describe suicide. Here, he did not kill himself for the cause of the greater good of Islam, therefore it is classified as a suicide. Contrast this with martyrdom, which is classified as “self-sacrifice in the service of others in emergency and reckless bravery in battle (jihad).” Manchester is simply another example of Muslims using immigration jihad to lay the groundwork for violent jihad when the time is ripe. According to Islamic doctrine, Abedi is a brave soldier who died a martyr while waging violent jihad and his funeral proceedings should follow suit. That is the real reason there will be no Imam reciting a traditional funeral prayer.

Don’t bother listening to those on television who tell you that Mohammed forbids the killing of ‘innocent’, therefore the Manchester attacker is not a real Muslim when he blew up those women and kids. This is one of the more common forms of taquiyya heard in the West. To start, Muslims do not view non-believers as innocent. Non-believers are only protected in certain circumstances if they are dhimmis (Jews and Christians) whose innocence is conditional to their acceptance of Muslim rule. Therefore, suicide attacks upon non-Muslims outside majority Muslim countries is permissible under Islamic doctrine and viewed as a form of martyrdom, not murder or suicide. One last takeaway — Muslims at the concert are viewed as ‘idolaters’ for being at the concert. Consequently they are non-innocent in the eyes of Islam. Please don’t fall for the taquiyya deception that innocent Muslims died at the concert, which should prove that the attacker was not acting in accordance with Islamic doctrine.

Feel duped? You should. This is yet another attempt by the mainstream media to promote Islamophillia in the West. Naturally, their coverage of this matter begs the question whether they are engaging in ignorance or active concealment and deceit. At the very least, this is gross negligence by the journalists who are given press privileges in exchange for adhering to journalistic ethics, which include, at the very basics, to fact check. If you are upset you were lied to, make sure to do your part and spread the word.
