Isa Graham must be an “extremist,” right? No: “O you who have believed, indeed the polytheists are unclean…” (Qur’an 9:28)
“Non-believers are on the nose: Preacher who converted to Islam says Muslims have cleaner bathrooms, are more polite and smell better than those who don’t worship Allah,” by Stephen Johnson, Daily Mail Australia, August 16, 2017 (thanks to The Religion of Peace):
A preacher who converted to Islam has suggested Muslims smell better than non-believers.
Sunni sheikh Isa Graham used the analogy of a man accidentally walking into a hotel conference room to describe the superior cleanliness of Muslims.
‘When he walks into our area, he should know there must be Muslims here,’ he said, gesturing with his right hand covering his nose.
‘Because the bathroom’s the cleanest, the way that people are speaking to me is the most polite. And the smell is the best.’
However, the preacher with the hardline Ahlus Sunnah Wal Jamaah Association also criticised moderate Muslims for failing to properly embrace Sharia law, an Islamic legal system which imposes punishment for adultery, among other things.
‘Instead of being proud of the Sharia, we start to become defensive and we do not look at the Sharia in its correct light,’ he said.
The Sunni sheikh said Muslims had a duty to spread their religion to everyone.
‘First in the way we present ourselves and we behave as Muslims, then we start to articulate it to the people,’ he said.
His sermon was delivered at the ASWJ’s annual conference at the Hume Islamic Youth Centre in Melbourne….
