A prominent Australian preacher has told his Muslim followers paedophiles and murderers who never miss a prayer are better, in the eyes of Allah, than good citizens who only miss one.
The teachings by Mohamed Hoblos fell onto the radar this month of the Middle East Media Research Institute (MEMRI), which aims to bridge the gap between Western culture and the Middle East.
‘Any person who misses one Salah (prayer) for no reason – you are worse than a murderer, you are worse than a rapist, you are worse than a terrorist, you are worse than a paedophile in the eyes of Allah.’
Mr Hoblos tells his followers to understand his teaching as ‘fact’ and something which should be ‘understood very clearly’. [more]
OK, but like, would Allah still be all ripshit if the only reason you missed prayer is because you got a bad bowl of goat chakna and came down with a really gnarly case of the runs??? Inquiring minds want to know!
