47 Modern Jurist & Sharia Scholar Opinions on Islamic Supremacism & Jihad


Note their eminent qualifications. If you are scanning quickly, bold numbers are most noteworthy.

2) Muhammad Rashid Rida (1865-1935) - From what is now Lebanon, wanted to rejuvenate the Ottoman caliphate. Rida preceded the 3 Key Ideologues covered later, and other important Salafists in declaring adherence to sharia law essential for Muslims:

  1. “those Muslim [rulers] who introduce novel laws today and forsake the Shari'a enjoined upon them by God ... They thus abolish supposed distasteful penalties such as cutting off the hands of thieves or stoning adulterers and prostitutes. They replace them with man-made laws and penalties. He who does that has undeniably become an infidel.”

He made no statements opposing Islamic supremacism, but he is called a Reformer™ for denying the way things are like so many today. In 1912 the scholar W. R. W. Gardner du-bunked him and other Reformers™, and you could say the same thing today:

  1. “... what is the teaching of Mohammedanism as to wars of aggression. Is a war for the extension of Islamic rule also jihad? In considering this point, not much light is to be got from the writings of the more recent Moslem authors...[Rida] we have quoted. They simply deny that it is a principle of Islam that jihad may include wars of aggression. By denying this, however, they do not prove anything; and, in order to get light on this part of the question before us, we must look at the Koran itself through those explanations of it which up to the present time pass as authoritative... These reformers of Islam may be right. The intention of Mohammed, in what he said of jihad, may have been misunderstood and misrepresented. But into this question we do not desire to go. For what we are considering is, what Mohammedanism is and has been... Until the newer conceptions, as to what the Koran teaches as to the duty of the believer towards non-believers, have spread further.. it is the older and orthodox standpoint on this question which must be regarded by non-Moslems as representing Mohammedan teaching... We may sympathize strongly with the newer ideas; we may even believe that they are such as would be approved by the founder of Islam were he to return... but we repeat, it is the older and narrower orthodox conception of Mohammed's teaching alone... with regard to jihad on this question of aggressive war. Andrew Bostom, The Legacy of Jihad: Islamic Holy War and the Fate of Non-Muslims (pp. 297-298).

3) Muhammad ‘Inayat Allah Khan (1888- 1963) - Born in Punjab, founded the Khaksar Movement, a Muslim separatist group. “One of the founding fathers of Pakistan.” Islamic scholar, M.A. in Mathematics Punjab University, attended Cambridge on a government scholarship, by 1912 received degrees there in oriental languages, mathematics, engineering, and the sciences. Adopted the pen name “al-Mashriqi” - “the Sage of the East”. Mashriqi’s book Tazkirah (a commentary of the Quran) was nominated for the 1925 Nobel Prize in Literature. 

Khan also translated Mein Kampf into Urdu, and met Hitler in 1926 at the National Library. From Mashriqi’s report on his interaction with Hitler as described in a letter to the renowned scholar of Indian Islam, J.M.S. Baljon:

  1. I was astounded when he [Hitler] told me that he knew about my Tazkirah. The news flabbergasted me. . . I found him very congenial and piercing. He discussed Islamic Jihad with me in details. In 1930 I sent him my Isharat concerning the Khaksar movement with a picture of a spade-bearer Khaksar at the end of that book. In 1933 he started his Spade Movement.

On May 31, 1935 Mashriqi wrote this summary of his 1926 meeting with Hitler:

  1. “If I had known that this was the very man who was to become Germany’s savior I would have fallen around Hitler’s neck, but on the occasion I was engaged in small talk and tried to find out what he understood about Germany’s weakness at the time... We shook hands and Hitler said, pointing to a book that was lying on the table: “I had a chance to read your al-Tazkirah.” Little did I understand at that time, what should have been clear to me when he said these words!

  1. The astonishing similarities—or shall we say the unintentional similarity between two great minds—between Hitler’s great book and the teachings of my Tazkirah and Isharat embolden me, because the fifteen years of “struggle” of the author of “My Struggle” [Mein Kampf] have now actually led his nation back to success. But only after leading his nation to the intended goal, has he disclosed his movement’s rules and obligations to the world; only after fifteen years has he made the means of success widely known. It is possible that he has arrived at those means and doctrines by trial and error, but it should be absolutely clear that Mashriqi [referring to himself in the third person] has identified those means and doctrines in al-Tazkirah a full nine years and in the Isharat a full three years before the success of the Nazi movement, simply by following the shining guidance of the Holy Koran.”

On IS&J, from his Qaul-i-Faysel:

  1. “…we {Muslims] have again to dominate the whole world. We have to become its conqueror and its rulers.”

His widely circulated pamphlet Islam Askari Zindagi declared:

  1. “The Koran has proclaimed in unequivocal words to the world that the Prophet was sent with the true religion and definite instruction that he should make all other religions subservient to this religion …”

Mashriqi emphasized repeatedly in his pamphlets and published articles that the verity of Islam could be gauged by the rate of the earliest Muslim conquests in the glorious first decades after Muhammad’s death - Mashriqi’s estimate is “36,000 castles in 9 years, or 12 per day”. He said “Nearly three-quarters” of the Koran concerns conquest, jihad (holy war), and related themes... “To leave the martial way of life is tantamount to leaving Islam.” Bostom: Hitler and Jihad

4) Hajj Amin al-Husseini (~1896 - 1974) - Studied Islamic law briefly at Al-Azhar University in Cairo and at the Dar al-Da'wa wa-l-Irshad under Rashid Rida, who remained his mentor till Rida’s death in 1935.2 3 Perhaps more a politician than a sharia scholar, he is on this page because of his authority and longtime influence as Grand Mufti of Jerusalem beginning in 1921. In 1922 he became President of the Supreme Muslim Council where he had the power to appoint personally loyal preachers in all of Palestine’s mosques, making him indisputably the most powerful Muslim leader in the country.2 Exiled, eventually to Germany from 1937 - 1945 where he was Hitler’s close associate. After the war he was wanted for crimes against humanity, but returned as a war hero to the Middle East, and remained Grand Mufti at least 10 years after WWII. He is remembered as the godfather of Palestinian terrorism nationalism - Professor Edward Said praised him as “the voice of the Palestinian people.” The History Channel made a film about him. Here are more influential Nazis who were welcomed in the Middle East after the war.

5) Sheikh Muhammad Mahawif - was Grand Mufti of Egypt, in 1948 issued a fatwa declaring jihad in Palestine obligatory for all Muslims.  Said the Jews intended “to take over ... all the lands of Islam..” (Andrew Bostom)

6) Sheikh Hasan Ma’moun - Grand Mufti of Egypt in 1956 issued a fatwa, signed by the leading members of the Fatwa Committee of Al Azhar, and the major representatives of all four Sunni schools of jurisprudence. He explains why Muslims cannot conclude peace with the Jews, and “jihad is an absolute necessity.” (Andrew Bostom Jihad and Islamic Antisemitism)

7) Sheikh Taqi-ud-deen Al-Nabahani (1909 - 1977) - Palestinian judge on Jerusalem's Islamic appellate court and in Lebanon, a Muslim Brotherhood member and reportedly "an associate and contemporary" of the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Husseini. He founded the political party Hizb ut-Tahrir in 1952 as an alternative to the MB, and remained its leader until he died in 1977.  Its stated goal is jihad “in clearly defined stages” against existing political regimes, and their replacement with a caliphate.

8) Sheikh Abd-el Qadim Zalloum (? - 2003) - Palestinian cleric and former professor at Al-Azhar U., replaced Al-Nabahani as leader of Hizb ut-Tahrir 1977 - 2003. Hizb reportedly now has secret cells in 40 countries, outlawed in Russia, Germany, Netherlands, Saudi Arabia and many others, but not in the USA where they hold an annual conference, and it’s still a legal political party in UK. Former Hizb-ut-Tahrir member Ed Husain, in his 2007 book The Islamist, says: The difference between Hizb ut-Tahrir and jihadists, is tactics, not goals. 

9) Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini (1902 - 1989) - Shi’ite jurist, father of the 1979 Iranian Islamic Revolution, Time Man of the Year, Carter’s man of God, a marja al-taqlid “regarded as one of the highest clergy in Shiʿism; his words and deeds serve as a guide...” Wrote over 200 books. Since his death, no single ayatollah has emerged as a sole, authoritative marja al-taqlid.

Puritanical Supremacist

  1. Islam Is Not a Religion of Pacifists (1942)

  1. "Islam makes it incumbent on all adult males ... to prepare themselves for the conquest of countries so that the writ of Islam is obeyed in every country in the world.... those who study Islamic Holy War will understand why Islam wants to conquer the whole world.... For they shall live under [God's law]... What is the good of us (the mullahs) asking for the hand of a thief to be severed or an adulteress to be stoned to death when all we can do is recommend such punishments, having no power to implement them?

  1. Those who know nothing of Islam pretend that Islam counsels against war. Those [who say this] are witless. Islam says: Kill all the unbelievers just as they would kill you all! ... Islam says: Kill them [non-Muslims], put them to the sword and scatter [their armies]. Does this mean sitting back until [non-Muslims] overcome us? Islam says: Kill in the service of Allah those who may want to kill you! Does this mean that we should surrender [to the enemy]? Islam says: Whatever good there it exists thanks to the sword and in the shadow of the sword! People cannot be made obedient except with the sword! The sword is the key to paradise, which can be opened only for holy warriors!

  2. There are hundreds of other [Koranic] psalms and hadith urging Muslims to value war and to fight. Does all that mean that Islam is a religion that prevents men from waging war? I spit upon those foolish souls who make such a claim.”

  1. (Islam Is Not a Religion of Pacifists (1942), English translation in Barry Rubin and Judith Colp Rubin, Anti-American Terrorism and the Middle East (Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2002), p. 29.) (Andrew Bostom Legacy of Jihad)

According to Amir Taheri in The Spirit of Allah: Khomeini and the Islamic Revolution (pp. 90-91), Iran’s Ayatollah Khomeini himself married a ten-year-old girl when he was twenty-eight. Khomeini called marriage to a prepubescent girl “a divine blessing,” and advised the faithful to give their own daughters away accordingly: “Do your best to ensure that your daughters do not see their first blood in your house.” When he took power in Iran, he lowered the legal marriageable age of girls to nine, in accord with Muhammad’s example.

  1. We want to release our youths from the opium pipe and place machine guns in their hands...

  1. You intellectuals do not want us to go back 1,400 years. You are afraid lest we bring up our youth in the same way as 1,400 years ago.

2/14/89 - issued a fatwa offering 3 million dollars to kill Salman Rushdie, author of a novel The Satanic Verses:

  1. "...the author of the Satanic Verses book, which is against Islam the Prophet and the Koran, and all those involved in its publication who are aware of its content are sentenced to death. I ask all Muslims to execute them wherever they find them." (fatwa)

Head of the Koranic Commentary Department U. of Medina, Saudi Arabia 1980 - 1984. He was #5 in a 2009 John Esposito co-authored book naming the world's 500 most influential Muslims, where: 

  1. "A group of researchers investigated who are the most visibly influential Muslims out there," said Professor John Esposito, who co-authored the book. "The issue is not how orthodox they are. The criterion is how influential these people are in their particular area."

  1. 1) Saudi King Abdullah

  2. 2) Iran's Grand Ayatollah Ali Khamenei -

  3. 3) Jordans King Abdullah II

  4. 4) Turkish Premier Erdogan

  5. 5) Grand Imam of Al-Azhar University, Sheik Tantawi  (died 2010).

  6. 6) Sheik Yusuf Qaradawi

  7. 7)Egyptian Grand Mufti Ali Gom'a 

BBC said Tantawi “is acknowledged as the highest spiritual authority for nearly a billion Sunni Muslims”. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton’s press statement about him after he died in 2010,

  1. an important voice for dialogue among religions”.

#5 Most Influential in the World “important voice for Dialogue™

Tantawi with the clueless Bush 2 advisor Karen Hughes in 2005, 2 years after he ruled in favor

of suicide bombing against all Americans in Iraq, and all Israeli men, women, and children

1966 - Tantawi’s wrote his 700 page Ph.D. thesis, Jews in the Koran and the Traditions (Banu Israil fi al-Quran wa-al-Sunnah), published around 1970.  In it he said:

  1. “Qur’an describes the Jews with their own particular degenerate characteristics, i.e. killing the prophets of Allah [K-2:61, 3:112], ...refusal to distance themselves from the evil they do, and other ugly characteristics caused by their deep-rooted lasciviousness…only a minority of the Jews keep their word….All Jews are not the same. The good ones become Muslims, the bad ones do not.” (K-3:113-114) Legacy of Islamic Antisemitism

He devotes a chapter to the various ways Allah punished the Jews, among them changing their form. In explaining Koran 5:60, ... the Jews, whom "Allah cursed ... and He turned some of them into apes and pigs." ‘Apes’ based on 2:65, 5:60, and 7:166 (Muhammad Sayyid Tantawi, "The Sons of Israel in the Koran and Muslim tradition," Cairo: Dar Al-Shurouq, Second Edition (2000), pp. 695-697.) MEMRI

1996 - 30 years later was appointed Grand Imam at Al-Azhar U., then met in Cairo with the Chief Rabbi of Israel. Here is Tantawi's response to the Muslim criticism against him afterwards:

  1. Question: "Why did the former Sheik of Al-Azhar refuse to hold such a meeting, but you agreed?"

  1. Tantawi: "... My stance stems from Allah’s book, more than one-third of which deals with the Jews.  You should know that you are interviewing a person who wrote a dissertation dealing with them, all their false claims and their punishment by Allah. I still believe in everything written in that dissertation.” [his Ph.D. thesis on the Jews] (MEMRI)

4/2002 - In a weekly sermon he called the Jews "the enemies of Allah, descendants of apes and pigs." (MEMRI)

11) Sheikh Yusuf Al-Qaradawi (1926- ) Egyptian, Ph.D. Islamic Jurisprudence Al-Azhar. Extremely influential Sunni jurist, sharia scholar based in Qatar, memorized the Koran by age ten. Qaradawi was #6 in the book co authored by Esposito in 2009 featuring the world's 500 most influential Muslims. 

President of many influential orgs, founder and president of the International Association of Muslim Scholars which issues many fatwas. Chairman of the popular website IslamOnline, authored more than 100 books on Islam and hosts a weekly television program with a viewing audience of  40 - 60 million called "Shariah and Life" on Al Jazeera. Chairman of the board of trustees at Michigan-based Islamic American University, a subsidiary of the Muslim American Society, which was claimed by the Muslim Brotherhood as theirs in 1987.

In a paper Professor John Esposito wrote arguing why he thinks sharia is compatible with liberal rule of law and Human Rights™, he said,

  1. "A cross section of Muslim thinkers, religious leaders and mainstream Islamic movements from Egypt to Indonesia, Europe to America, engage in this kind of reformist interpretation of Islam and its relationship to democracy, pluralism and human rights. They include such religious scholars (‘ulama') as Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi...". 

Carnegie scholar Noah Feldman was an architect of Iraq’s constitution, and cites Qaradawi as an example of an "Islamist-democrat." In 2005 former London Mayor Ken Livingston rolled out the red carpet for Qaradawi, said he is “the most positive progressive force for change” and “very similar to the position of Pope John XXIII.” 1 Former Ground Zero mosque Moderate™ Imam Rauf, said Qaradawi is a “very very well known Islamic jurist, highly regarded all over the Muslim world.”

He said he worked with and was influenced by Hasan al-Banna, founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, where he is a longtime spiritual advisor, and in 1976 and 2004 turned down offers to be the Brotherhood’s highest-ranking General Leader. He explained he wants to avoid tying himself to "any movement which might constrain my actions, even if this is the Muslim Brotherhood under whose umbrella I grew and which I so defended." He is president of a Saudi-based org representing Islamic fundraising groups worldwide, a “Specially Designated Global Terrorist” by the US government since 1999, and banned from entering the US.

12) Sheik Ali Gom’a - Current (2012) Grand Mufti of Egypt, Sunni jurist, Ph.D. Department of Sharia, Al-Azhar University. Gom’a was #7 in the book co-authored by John Esposito featuring the world's 500 most influential Muslims, and he is widely hailed as a Moderate™.

#7 Most Influential in the World

“Champion of Moderate™” Supremacism

“Advocate for Muslim Women”

Authored over 50 books.  “One of the foremost Islamic scholars in the world. He is responsible for the leading institute for Islamic legal research (Daral Ifta al Masriyyah), and the legal arm of the Egyptian Ministry of Justice, which is responsible for passing official religious rulings [some 5,000 fatwas per week]. Before Grand Mufti, he was Professor of Jurisprudence at Al Azhar University. Member of the International Islamic Fiqh Academy, the highest institute of Islamic law in the Organization of the Islamic Cooperation (OIC)”.

Dinesh D’Souza says he is a leading example of a Moderate™, Jay Tolson of US News said

  1. "western politicians and commentators have asked the same questions repeatedly: Where are the voices of Moderate™ Islam?" Yet the West - including, more specifically, the U.S. government - has done little to locate or assist such Moderates™”. 

New Yorker’s Lawrence Wright:

  1. “a highly promoted champion of Moderate™ Islam... He is the kind of cleric the West longs for... an Advocate™ for Muslim women.“ 

But here is what he has said:

On the Jews:

  1. “the true and hideous face of the blood-suckers who were described...” in Der Talmudjude (1871, by the antisemitic professor August Rohling.) MEMRI Al-Ahram article

From CBC TV posted on internet 12/23/14 he declares the authenticity of the hadith (Sahih Muslim 6985) predicting  a genocide of Jews:

  1. Some people question the reliability of this hadith, but it is 100% authentic and will come true. Look how the Jews are planting Gharqad trees all over the West Bank. They know that it will protect them when they hide behind it. They believe these sacred texts, while some Muslims doubt them. But most of the Muslims believe in these texts and will continue to do so.”


  1. “Muslims must kill non-believers wherever they are unless they convert to Islam.” (daily Al Ahram (April 7, 2008) (Source: Dr. Sami Alrabaa is a professor of Sociology and Arab/Muslim culture specialist who taught at Kuwait University, King Saud University, and Michigan State U.)

Report on Gom’a: “A fatwa issued by Egypt’s top religious authority, which forbids the display of statues has art-lovers fearing it could be used by Islamic extremists as an excuse to destroy Egypt’s historical heritage.  The country’s top Islamic jurist, issued the religious edict, basing the decision on texts in the hadith (sayings of the prophet): ”Sculptors would be tormented most on Judgment Day,” saying the text left no doubt that sculpting was “sinful” and using statues for decorating homes forbidden.” Intellectuals and artists argue that the decree represents a setback for art -- a mainstay of the multi-billion-dollar tourist industry.” Unfortunately, in 2012, soon after Brotherhood president Morsi was elected Calls to Destroy Egypt's Great Pyramids Began by some influential clerics.

More Sharia Scholars

22) Bassam Tibi (1944 - ) - German-Syrian born Sunni, 2 Ph.D.’s U. of Frankfurt & U. of Hamburg, political philosopher and Islam expert, 18 visiting professorships on 4 continents, wrote 27 books in German, 8 in English. Expert on Jihadism and Political Islam:

  1. “As we have seen, Islam understands itself as a mission of peace for all humanity, although this call (da'wa) can sometimes be pursued by war. In this sense, the da'wa is an invitation to jihad, which means fundamentally "to exert one's self" and can involve either military or nonmilitary effort. Jihad can become a war (qital) against those who oppose Islam, either by failing to submit to it peacefully or by creating obstacles to its spread.” (Bassam Tibi, "War and Peace in Islam," in the Ethics of War and Peace: Religious and Secular Perspectives, ed. Terry Nardin (Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1996), pp. 128-45)

He warns the West:

"The dialogue is not proceeding well because of the two-facedness of most Muslim interlocutors on the one hand and the gullibility of well-meaning Western idealists on the other." 

  1. Tibi said, "First, both sides should acknowledge candidly that although they might use identical terms these mean different things to each of them. The word 'peace,' for example, implies to a Muslim the extension of the Dar al-Islam – or 'House of Islam' – to the entire world... This is completely different from the Enlightenment concept of eternal peace that dominates Western thought, a concept developed by Immanuel Kant... Similarly, when Muslims and the Western heirs of the Enlightenment speak of tolerance they have different things in mind. In Islamic terminology, this term implies abiding non-Islamic monotheists, such as Christians, Jews and Zoroastrians, as second-class believers..." According to Tibi, the quest of converting the entire world to Islam is an immutable fixture of the Muslim worldview. Only if this task is accomplished, if the world has become a "Dar al-Islam," will it also be a "Dar a-Salam," or a house of peace.” Tibi appealed to his co-religionists to "revise their understanding of peace and tolerance by accepting pluralism." Islamic Scholar Warns US of ‘Two Faced’ Muslims

Muslims frequently claim that “Islam means peace.” The word Islam comes from the same three-letter Arabic root as the word “salaam,” peace. Islam, however, means submission, not peace. Peace in Islam equals submission to the will of Allah. The absence of sharia is the absence of peace. (Wolfgang Bruno)

Professor Khaduri

Jurist & Sharia Scholar

23) Majid Khaduri (1909-2007) - Iraqi jurist, Ph.D International law University of Chicago in 1938, member of the Iraqi delegation to the founding of the United Nations in 1945. Career spanned more than 65 years, joined SAIS faculty in 1949, then created the first graduate program in the U.S on the modern Middle East. He was the program's director until his retirement in 1980 and University Distinguished Research Professor until his death at 98 years old. Internationally recognized as one of the world's leading authorities on Islamic law and jurisprudence, modern Arab and Iraqi history, and politics. Author of over 35 books in English and Arabic. Fouad Ajami said "Professor Khadduri was one of the pioneers of Middle Eastern studies in the United States. He had a real mastery of Islamic law, and he remained one of its leading authorities." He taught at the universities of Indiana, Chicago, Columbia, Harvard, Virginia and Georgetown. Received numerous research fellowships, grants and honors, including a Philosophical Society grant; a Ford Foundation fellowship; a Fulbright grant; three Rockefeller Foundation grants; honorary LHDs from Johns Hopkins and the State University of New York; the Order of Merit, first class, from the government of Egypt; and the Order of the Rafidain, from the government of Iraq. Founded the Shaybani Society of International Law, and was a founder of the Middle East Institute, and the University of Libya, where he became dean in 1957. 

  1. “jihad had for its intent the waging of war on unbelievers for their disbelief and not merely when they entered conflict with Islam... Jurists who came afterward, up unto the very decline of Muslim power, merely introduced refinements and elaborations of these basic principals. No essential difference among the leading jurist is to be found on this fundamental duty [of jihad], whether in orthodox or heterodox doctrine." (Majid Khadduri, “Translator’s Introduction,” in The Islamic Law of Nations: Shaybani’s Siyar, Majid Khadduri, translator, Baltimore: The Johns Hopkins Press, 1966, p.58 and 16 )

25) Hatem al-Haj - Egyptian, leading American Muslim jurist, MD, PhD, fellow at the American Academy of Pediatrics, and the author of this revealing 2008 Assembly of Muslim Jurists of America paper, which says the duty of Muslims is not to respect the laws of the country where they live, but rather do everything in their power to make the laws of Allah supreme. He wrote a 41-page Arabic-language paper entitled Circumcision of Girls: Jurisprudence and Medicine, where he argues that it is 'an honor' for women by referring to the words of classical jurists and Muhammad, who reportedly counseled people how to do it so it would be "more beautiful to behold and better for husband." The World Health Organization says Female Genital Mutilation causes a range of health problems including "severe bleeding and problems urinating, and later cysts, infections, infertility as well as complications in childbirth."

26) Sheikh Abdullah Yusuf Azzam (1941-1989) - Palestinian, Ph.D. Al-Azhar University in The Principles of Islamic Jurisprudence, Shariah degree Damascus University, influenced by Sayyid Qutb and knew his family while in Egypt, lectured for years at Saudi Arabia’s King Abdul Aziz University in Jeddah until 1979. OBL was enrolled there from 76-81 where they probably first met; Azzam eventually became his mentor.  He was “an influential figure in the Muslim Brotherhood”, and “the guiding light of both Hamas and al-Qaeda.“ Ibn Warraq says Azzam’s most important contribution to the jihadist ideology was his fatwa, almost a short monograph, Defense of the Muslim Lands [1979], which was given an official stamp of approval by Sheikh Abdul Aziz Bin Bazz, who would become the Grand Mufti of Saudi Arabia in the 1990s.  He says it is one of “4 core texts of jihadists” today. In Peshawar, together with “his dear friend, Usama bin Ladin”, Azzam founded the Mujahideen Services Bureau to assist the Afghan Jihad by establishing and managing projects that supported the cause [mosques & charities]. Due to his efforts, the Bureau received and trained volunteers pouring into Pakistan from all over the World and allocated them to the front lines. Slate mag wrote, “Azzam trotted the globe during the 1980s to promote the Afghan jihad against the Soviets. By the time of his death in 1989, he had recruited between 16,000 and 20,000 mujaheddin from 20 countries to Afghanistan, visited 50 American cities to advance his cause, and dispatched acolytes to spread the gospel in 26 US states, not to mention across the Middle East and Europe.” The Afghan bureau became a very large network with many financial ties, and would later become al-Qaeda. He was killed in Peshawar, Pakistan in 1989 by a massive explosion while he and his sons were on their way to Friday prayers. Azzam's followers consider him a martyr and as “the main pillar of the Jihad movement in the modern times.”

Sheik Abdullah Azzam, Ph.D.

Theological inspiration to al-Qaeda

While in Saudi Arabia in the late 70’s:

  1. "Jihad and the rifle alone. NO negotiations, NO conferences and NO dialogue” Who Was Abdullah Azzam?

Warraq says the main arguments of his  book are few, since more than fifty percent of it is taken up by quotations from the Koran, from scholars like Ibn Taymiyya, from the Hadith, from Koranic commentators like Ibn Kathir, and from the four main Sunni schools of Law.

He describes:

  1. Offensive Jihad: (where the enemy is attacked in his own territory). Where the Kuffar are not gathering to fight the Muslims. The fighting becomes obligatory on the community but not necessarily on the individual.

  1. Defensive Jihad: This is expelling the Kuffar from our land, and compulsory for all individuals. Defense of Muslim Lands, chapter 1

In his book Join the Caravan, he quotes and comments on Koranic verses 2:251, 3:97, 4:75-76, 4:84, 4:95-99, 8:39, 9:32-33, 9:39, 9:41, 9:87-88, 9:91-92, 12:111, 22:40, 24:15, 33:18-19, 50:37, 57:25, and then quotes hadith and sharia scholars.  Here’s that booklet, you can scan how many core text quotes, they are color highlighted.

He quotes Qutb on the timeless nature of jihad:

  1. “If Jihad had been a transitory phenomenon in the life of the Muslim Ummah, all of these sections of the Quranic text would not be flooded with this type of verse! Likewise so much of the Sunna of the Messenger of Allah would not be occupied with such matters.”

Osama bin Laden in 1991,

  1. “Sheikh Abdullah Azzam was not an individual, but an entire nation by himself. Muslim women have proven themselves incapable of giving birth to a man like him after he was killed.” (Who Was Abdullah Azzam?) More Abdullah Azzam

27) Sheikh Omar Abdel-Rahman (1938 - ) - AKA "The Blind Sheikh", Egyptian, al-Azhar degree in Koranic studies, sharia scholar, was leader of Egyptian terrorist organization, Gama’at Islamiya. Although acquitted by an Egyptian court for complicity in the 1981 slaying of Egyptian president Anwar Sadat, he has bragged about issuing the fatwa that approved the killing. Found guilty of plotting to assassinate Egyptian President Mubarak in 1993. Spiritual leader to bin Laden. Currently serving life in the U.S. because he was convicted (along with nine co-defendants) in 1995 of planning to wage a "war of urban terrorism" against the United States; this war, which Rahman never successfully launched, was intended to feature a day of deadly terror in and around New York City: five bombs blowing up respectively, in the United Nations Building, the Lincoln and Holland Tunnels, the George Washington Bridge and the main Federal office building in Manhattan. According to prosecutors, the 1993 bombing of the World Trade Center (WTC), which killed six people, was part of the conspiracy.

“Scholar and Jihadi”

Theologically Qualified Supremacist

In June 2012 there was a White House visit to Deputy National Security Adviser Denis McDonough by an Egyptian Legislature delegation that included Hani Nour Eldin of Gama’at Islamiya requesting release of their leader, the Blind Sheik Omar Abdul Rahman. When asked how Eldin got to be there, the State Dept.  refused to say. In September 2012 the Egyptian paper El Fagr reported that Jihadi groups in Egypt, including Islamic Jihad and Gama’at Islamiya threatened to burn down the U.S. embassy in Cairo unless all the Islamic jihadis currently imprisoned and in detention centers in the U.S. including Guantanamo Bay were released: "The group, which consists of many members from al-Qaeda, called for the quick release of the jihadi  sheikh, Omar Abdul Rahman, whom they described as a scholar and jihadi who sacrificed his life for the Egyptian Umma, who was ignored by the Mubarak regime...” Days later on 9/11/12 the American ambassador to Libya was killed in a sophisticated attack on the US embassy there, and deadly attacks on US embassies began worldwide, allegedly over a youtube clip that disrespects Muhammad, and used as a pretext to enforce Islamic blasphemy laws internationally.   Blind Sheik on IS&J

29) Sita Ram Goel (1921 - 2003) - Hindu, author, M.A. in History, Delhi University, was a Gandhian activist. His writings are practically boycotted in the media. Even though he is not a sharia scholar, he is on this page because that is mostly what his The Calcutta Qur'an Petition (1986) is - quotes of Koranic commentaries by famous sharia scholars, in an attempt to ban the Koran in India. An estimated 80 million Hindus were killed in the jihad against India. (Koenard Elst, Negationism in India,) (B. Warner)

30) Sheikh Ahmed Kuftaro (1912-2004) - Grand Mufti of Syria, after the 2003 invasion of Iraq, yes to suicide attacks against Americans there. 

  1. Koran 9:28 is taken seriously by many theologians: O you who believe! the idolaters are nothing but unclean, so they shall not approach the Sacred Mosque after this year”. Infidels who handled the Koran at Gitmo had to wear gloves? It’s because they are considered filthy.

State sponsored Islamic supremacism over highways approaching Mecca, Saudi Arabia, where the Sacred Mosque is:


  1. 31)Grand Ayatollah Sistani (1930 -) - Shiite jurist and marja, the “highest authority for 17-20 million Iraqi Shi’a, also as a moral and religious authority to Usuli Twelver Shi’a worldwide”. Widely regarded in the West as a Moderate™. In fact 3 times Pulitzer Prize winner and Middle East Expert™ Thomas Friedman wants to give a Nobel prize to him even though he is an Islamic supremacist.

Sistani: Compares kafir filth to feces and semen

Thomas Friedman: Would nominates him for Nobel Prize

From Sistani’s website, elaborating on Koran 9:28.

  1. 10 Najis Things [Filthy Things]

  2. 1) urine

  3. 2) feces

  4. 3) semen

  5. 4) dead body (if not slaughtered properly)

  6. 5) blood

  7. 6) dog

  8. 7) pig

  9. 8) kafir (non-Muslim)

  10. 9) alcoholic liquor

  11. 10) the sweat of an animal who persistently eats najasat.

Imagine Billy Graham substituting ‘Muslims’ for ‘kafir’, and posted it on his website every day for years, and then a best selling Muslim author from Iraq who is considered an Expert on American culture wants to nominate him for a Nobel Prize because he preaches that Evangelicals shouldn’t kill Catholics. 

9) (Again) Grand Ayatollah Ruhollah Khomeini names 11 impure things:

  1. "There are eleven things which are impure: urine, excrement, sperm, bones, blood, dogs, pigs, non-Moslem men and women, wine, beer, and the sweat of the excrement-eating camel." (#83 (from Resaleh p.48)

  2. [...]

  3. "The meaning of the term 'terror' used by the media is Jihad for the sake of Allah... Moreover, some of the clerics. see it as the sixth pillar of Islam. Jihad ... is the pinnacle of terror, as far as the enemies of Allah are concerned. The Mujaheed who goes out to attain a martyr's death or victory and returns with booty is a terrorist as far as the enemies of Allah are concerned. Accordingly, the believer must not use this word. Jihad, oh believers, is an integral part of our religion. The word 'terror' is used to damage this mighty and blessed foundation." (Al-Manshawi Mosque, Mecca, October 6, 2001)    More Al-Ghazawi

35) Saudi Sheik Muhammad al-Munajjid (1962 - ) - well-known Islamic scholar, lecturer, author, Wahhabi cleric.  The fatwa taken from his very popular Islam Q&A website explains IS&J in detail, quoting many core texts in Why Do Muslims Wage Jihad?

  1. "It is impossible ever to make peace with the Jews ... we must not [sign] a treaty with them...  The Jews are defiled creatures and satanic scum. The Jews are the cause of the misery of the human race, together with the infidels and the other polytheists. " (Al Minbar sermon)

  1. "This is the greatest benefit of the situation: educating the children to Jihad and to hatred of the Jews, the Christians, and the infidels. This is what is needed now…" (Al Minbar sermon)     Al-Munajjid on IS&J

  1. "the scum of the human race, the rats of the world, the violators of pacts and agreements, the murderers of the prophets, and the offspring of apes and pigs." (MEMRI Al-Haraam Mosque, Mecca)     More al-Sudayyis

37) Saudi Sheikh ‘Abdullah bin Muhammad bin Humaid - Ex-Chief Justice of Saudi Arabia, current Imam of the Grand Mosque in Mecca, wrote a long article detailing Jihad in the Qur'an and Sunnah:

  1. So when you meet those who disbelieve smite at their necks till when... (K-47:4) Thus [you are ordered by Allah to continue in carrying out Jihad against the disbelievers till they embrace Islam or at least come under your protection] (K-47:5,6).     bin Humaid on IS&J

38) Shaykh Nasir bin Hamd al-Fahd - Saudi cleric, in 2003 issued a fatwa allowing OBL the use of WMD against Americans in “A Treatise on the Legal Status of Using Weapons of Mass Destruction Against Infidels”:

39) Saudi Sheikh Ba'd bin Abdallah al-Ajameh al-Ghamidi said this about apes and pigs.

40) Raymond Ibrahim linked to a Youtube video that had a snippet of formal prayers at Mecca, Saudi Arabia, Islam's holiest city at its holiest site, the Ka'ba, where Muslims circumambulated around the Ka'ba, and the following was blasted on a megaphone, chanted to by Islam's devotees:

  1. “O Allah vanquish the unjust Christians and the criminal Jews, the unjust traitors; strike them with your wrath; make their lives hostage to misery; drape them with endless despair, unrelenting pain and unremitting ailment; fill their lives with sorrow and pain and end their lives in humiliation and oppression; inflict your tortures and punishments upon the unjust Christians and criminal Jews...” Muslim Prayers of Hate: Raymond Ibrahim

The Saudis boasted of having spent $74 billion “educating” the West that Islam is a Peaceful Tolerant Religion™. They gave to Harvard and U of Alabama $20 million each, Cornell $11 million, Rutgers, Columbia, and UC Berkeley $5 million each, Texas A&M $1.5 million, Princeton $1 million, and USC $1 million back in 1969. Georgetown U got around $27 million, and is located in Washington D.C. where most government agencies send their staffers to learn about Islam.

  2. "But the rock and tree will say: 'Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, a Jew hides behind me, come and kill him.' Sahih Muslim B41 N6981 - 86, and Sahih Bukhari B52 N176, 177

  3. "We believe in this Hadith. We are convinced also that this Hadith heralds the spread of Islam and its rule over all the land…"

  4. "Oh beloved, look to the East of the earth, find Japan and the ocean; look to the West of the earth, find [some] country and the ocean. Be assured that these will be owned by the Muslim nation, as the Hadith says… 'from the ocean to the ocean'…" MEMRI

  1. Some people question the reliability of this hadith, but it is 100% authentic and will come true. Look how the Jews are planting Gharqad trees all over the West Bank. They know that it will protect them when they hide behind it. They believe these sacred texts, while some Muslims doubt them. But most of the Muslims believe in these texts and will continue to do so.” (Sahih Muslim 6985)

46) Sheik Taj Din Al-Hilali - Sunni, Imam of the Lakemba Mosque, former Grand Mufti of Australia & New Zealand, I’m not sure of his education but he is on this page because he was the highest religious authority there for almost 20 years. He said the following after Muslims were sentenced to prison for gang raping an Australian woman:

  1. “If you take out uncovered meat and place it outside on the street, or in the garden or in the park, or in the backyard without a cover, and the cats come and eat it . . . whose fault is it, the cats' or the uncovered meat's? The uncovered meat is the problem. If she was in her room, in her home, in her hijab, no problem would have occurred.” (The Australian 2006)   Al-Hilali on IS

Raymond Ibrahim explains why the “religious defamation” laws being called for internationally in 2012 would ban Islam itself and its core texts if they were applied with the same standard to all religions. But if the standard is how violent a reaction it provokes from the offended people, then only ‘defaming’ Islam will be banned.

With all his references they amount to a mountain of evidence especially in the absence of any book full of contrary opinions from anyone with any authorities. Here are reading lists with books full of more evidence from Muslim and non-Muslim accounts of institutionalized IS&J for over 1300 years. Bostom saysin 1958, Lebanese Law Professor Antoine Fattal, perhaps the greatest scholar of the legal condition of non-Muslims living under the Shari'a, lamented:

  1. “No social relationship, no fellowship is possible between Muslims and dhimmis...Even today, the study of the jihad is part of the curriculum of all the Islamic institutes. In the universities of Al-Azhar, Nagaf, and Zaitoune, students are still taught that the holy war is a binding prescriptive decree, pronounced against the Infidels, which will only be revoked with the end of the world..."

  1. Spencer:

  1. “People who have no difficulty grasping that not everyone who identifies himself as a Christian loves his enemy or turns the other cheek, or even cares to, ... seem to have trouble conceptualizing the possibility that huge numbers of Muslims... have no interest in forwarding the Islamic supremacist program, and may in all sincerity not even be aware of it. That doesn't mitigate the existence of that program one whit, or alter the fact that jihadists are recruiting among cultural Muslims by calling them back to what they present, often successfully, as the "pure" and "true" practice of Islam.The Grey Lady examines that strange specimen, Geert Wilders Robert Spencer
