Statement of the Center for The Study of Political Islam International regarding Orlando nightclub shooting on June 12th, 2016
As a result of jihad, over 50 people were killed in Florida during the Sunday’s tragic event. Although such incidents happen more and more in Western countries, political elites and the media express surprise at the attack.
When we closely examine Islamic doctrine, we find that the attack should not come as a surprise. Islamic doctrine and Sharia law, which is based on it, adopt a negative attitude to homosexuality and also encourage its followers to spread and apply Islamic rules in society.
[Koran 7:80-84] And remember when We sent Lot and he said to them: “Do you realize you practise an indecency of which no other people in the world were guilty of before you? You approach men lustfully in place of women. You are a people who exceed all bounds.” Their only answer was: “Banish them from your town. They are a people who pretend to be pure.” Then We delivered Lot and his household save his wife who stayed behind, and We let loose a shower [of stones] upon them. Observe, then, the end of the evil-doers.
[Abu Dawud 033,4448] “If a man who is not married is seized committing sodomy, he will be stoned to death.”
[Koran 26:165] “Of all the creatures in the world, will you approach males, and leave those whom Allah has created for you to be your mates? Nay, you are a people transgressing!”
[Bukhari 4,52,142] Mohammed: “To battle Kafirs in jihad for even one day is greater than the entire earth and everything on it. A spot in Paradise smaller than your riding crop is greater than the entire earth and everything on it. A day or a night’s travel in jihad is greater than the entire world and everything on it.”
