The ICB is mainly upset because these kuffar try to get Muslims to vote and otherwise participate in British society. But it gets worse: like John Esposito, they label Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi as a moderate, despite his support for suicide bombings against civilians. From the ICB site, with thanks to nevermindlv:
When Allaah (swt) speaks about munaafiqeen (hypocrites) or murtaddeen (apostates — those who used to be Muslim then became kaafir), he often describes them in a state where they themselves believe they are Muslims, while in actual fact they are kuffaar (disbelievers in Islaam). Allaah (swt) says in the Qur”aan:
يُخَادِعُونَ اللَّهَ وَالَّذِينَ آمَنُوا وَمَا يَخْدَعُونَ إِلا أَنْفُسَهُمْ وَمَا يَشْعُرُونَ
“They (think to) deceive Allaah and those who believe, while they only deceive themselves, and perceive (it) not!” (EMQ Al-Baqarah, 2: 9)
The apostates and hypocrites seek to deceive Allaah and the believers (sincere Muslims); while in actual fact they are deceiving none but themselves. The hypocrites and apostates wish for other Muslims to follow their satanic path to hell-fire and wish that people become kaafir like them.
وَدُّوا لَوْ تَكْفُرُونَ كَمَا كَفَرُوا فَتَكُونُونَ سَوَاءً فَلا تَتَّخِذُوا مِنْهُمْ أَوْلِيَاءَ حَتَّى يُهَاجِرُوا فِي سَبِيلِ اللَّهِ فَإِنْ تَوَلَّوْا فَخُذُوهُمْ وَاقْتُلُوهُمْ حَيْثُ وَجَدْتُمُوهُمْ وَلا تَتَّخِذُوا مِنْهُمْ وَلِيًّا وَلا نَصِيرًا
“They wish that you reject Faith, as they have rejected (Faith), and thus that you all become equal (like one another). So take not Auliyaa’ (protectors or friends) from them, till they emigrate in the Way of Allaah. But if they turn back (from Islaam), take (hold) of them and kill them wherever you find them, and take neither Auliyaa’ nor helpers from them.” (EMQ An-Nisaa”, 4: 89)
So who are these kuffaar that claim to be Muslims? Who are these people Allaah (swt) informs us of, who want us to reject eemaan and Islaam in order to become equal, humiliated and degraded like them? Who are these people whom Allaah (swt) has ordered us not to support, help, befriend, love and protect? The answer is very clear from the verse above — those who commit kufr and shirk and order others to do so. It is those who claim to be Muslims yet they tell us to become kaafir by voting for man-made law and the kuffaar, become MP”s, join the police force and the army of Taaghout (non-Muslims) and claim that Jews, Christians and Muslims are all the same and are a single brotherhood”¦a”oudhu billaah!
These apostates are cursed by almighty Allaah (swt), are destined for eternal torture in the hereafter and are the cause of fitnah and corruption among the Muslims. The apostates that Allaah describes in the above verses are people like Yousuf Al-Qaradaawi, Hamzah Yousuf, Inaayat Bunglawala, Lord Khanzeer Ahmad and all the rulers of Muslim lands. These people are all subservient to the kuffaar and hence have left the fold of Islaam after being guided to the deen of Islaam. In the time of the Prophet (saw) people like these were fought against and killed by the Sahaabah (companions of the Prophet). However, in our sad time of humiliation and weakness, these kuffaar are praised and shown as role models for Muslims to follow. They are even given titles such as “˜Imaam” or “˜the world’s most renowned scholar of Islaam”!!
These people are kaafir for their allegiance with the non-Muslims, praising them and claiming that they are equal to Muslims. They have on numerous occasions come on TV and public platforms calling Muslims to become part of the army, police and intelligence of the kuffaar — the enemies of Allaah.
It is haraam (prohibited) and could lead to apostasy to attend their talks, lectures, debates or discussions. …
We must stand by the true scholars of Islaam who are either behind bars or labelled as extremists or terrorists and work collective in a jamaa”ah (collective body) to rid the earth from our kaafir apostate rulers (and those who support them) and their oppressive regimes and implement the sharee”ah, as a matter of obligation and Tawheed.
