This is not really a surprise, given that even Ibrahim Hooper has admitted that some Muslims in the U.S. practice polygamy. Sharia Alert: “Polygamy in Sharon, MA!” from Miss Kelly (thanks to Sr. Soph):
Miss Kelly was forwarded this letter, which was sent to the Islamic Center of New England (ICNE) Board of Directors last week. I have of course removed all the names to protect peoples’ privacy:
Assallamu Alaykum Wa Rahmato Allahi Wa Barakatoh;
“My name is (Jane Doe). I am a Muslim American Arab member of the community of New England, and I have contributed to the community in my ways in Sharon as well as R.I.”
“I believe its the duty of the Islamic center to watch out for their
community members and correct any misconduct by the best available methods provided by the Imam of that center,I also strongly believe that as a Islamic Legitamate organization we as muslims have to bind by the rules and regulations of the states of america.”
“With that said I, (Jane Doe), report my complaint of the misconduct not only by my husband (John Doe) but also by Brother (Abdul Doe) reprensentative of Islamic center of Sharon,where through the authority given to brother (Abdul Doe) by the center of Sharon ,my husband (John Doe) was able to marry illegally and secretly and without my knowledge three american muslim women, and because of that my self and my children have suffered and still suffering tremendously,and because of the failure of the Islamic center as well the Imams to prevent such misconduct, I had no choice but to file for divorce, and demand through the court for my rights as well as my childrens,and for me to insure that, I will expose this misconduct to the court and media if I have to, I also hope through this letter that you will make sure that this victimizations doesn’t happen to any other sisters.”
I don’t know why I’m even surprised by this, as most Muslim religious “leaders” calmly assert that it is the right of a Muslim man to marry up to four wives. Apparently, American laws against polygamy don’t bother some religious leaders in the least little bit.
Read it all. Miss Kelly has some pointed questions for the Administration of the Islamic Center of New England.
