Stoning Is Good For You!

A “Canadian” sheikh named Faisal Hamid Abdur-Razak is making waves in Ontario with his recent statements about the stoning of adulterers. Not only does the sheikh prescribe the application of the Shariah punishment for adultery — stoning, that is — he also believes that being stoned is good for the victim’s soul.

In the best of all possible Islamic worlds, all believers stand united in the joy of their faith. The stone-throwers and the bleeding sinner alike are ecstatic in their perfect awareness of Allah’s omnipresent mercy.

That’s some sheikh, that Sheikh Faisal Hamid Abdur-Razak.

As Vlad points out, the illustrious cleric is a distinguished community leader, and consorts regularly with high-minded people of all religious faiths:

Shaykh Faisal served on the Government of Canada Interfaith Committee, the Province of Ontario Multifaith Council, and the City of Brampton Multifaith Committee.

He is also the President of the Islamic Forum of Canada, Vice-President of the Islamic Council of Imams of Canada, and a member of the al-Shura Muslim Consultative Council.

Yes, Sheikh Abdur-Razak is one of those most elusive of creatures, a “moderate Muslim”. Can this really be what a moderate Muslim believes?

I’m shocked — shocked, I tell you!

Brampton Muslim cleric preaches adulterers, gays can benefit from being stoned to death

By Simon Kent

Death to sinners.

That is the religious message brought to you by YouTube. Homosexuals and adulterers, you’d better start running because it’s directed at you.

Don’t believe me? Well, plenty of people watched Wednesday as Sheikh Faisal Hamid Abdur-Razak put his death by stoning show on the digital high road courtesy of the Internet.

A YouTube video featuring an insightful look at the ideas of the Brampton preacher who stated that “sinners,” as defined by his own interpretation of Islamic law, can benefit from a jolly good stoning was running all day until it was belatedly taken down.
The sheikh explained that a Muslim who is sentenced to death by stoning under Sharia law actually benefits from this gruesome punishment as his or her soul is being purified even as the stones rain down on their sinful head.

It would possibly be funny if it were in a Monty Python movie. Almost, but not quite. There is no joke to be had in a medieval form of punishment like stoning. Nor should it be condoned.

Alas, it might be more widely spread than most Canadians would believe…

  1. If it is so good and purifying, may I suggest this alleged ‘holy man’ be the first to be stoned.

  2. Thank you for the quotation marks around the word “Canadian”. Muslims will never be Canadian, not if they leech off Canadians for a thousand years.

  3. Why are we even having this conversation in the 21st century? Or 20th, or 19th for that matter? I have no doubt if most moozlums were white this nonsense would have been put down like a rabid dog long ago.

  4. Why do western societies even let people like this into their countries. Let enough in and soon you’ll have Sharia Law rammed down your throats.

  5. Is it any surprise that a Quranic scholar in the UK has spoken out anonymously to say that the translations of the Quran that are available in English are toned down so that they do not offend western ears too much.

    Peter, above, needs to remember that Jesus said that He would not remove the least item from the Law, but His pronouncement “Let him who is without sin cast the first stone” was clearly meant to deal with a set up because if the woman had been caught in the act of adultery, then the man with whom she was committing the adultery with would also have been caught, unless it was a set up to let him escape. Notice too that at the end of the conversation, Jesus does not say that what she had been doing does not matter, but “Go and sin no more!”

  7. While I do not agree with what was said what is really revealed is how ignorant some are. Blaming all Muslims for what one said is absolutely ridiculous and it doesn’t make any one better to state that Muslims as a whole are unwelcome. If cruelty is what you are fighting against, them maybe think before you condemn as you are advocating you own cruelty and masking it as outrage. It just shows how racist some are. Think before you speak as the validity of your speech falters with each racist overtone. Also, there are many who were born Muslim and live in Canada, and are thus still Canadian, no leeching involved. Buddy, [epithet redacted].

  8. The Toronto Sun Apologized to Shaykh Faisal on Nov 16, 2013 for the article written by Simon Kent. the Toronto Sun recognized that Shaykh Faisal NEVER said in his sermon that homosexuals or adulterers should be stoned. Read the full apology at

    Shaykh Faisal believes the apology is inadequate and intends to pursue a claim for damages.

    This article should be taken down because it is defamatory and misleading.
