A Toronto mosque is telling Muslims not to say "Happy Thanksgiving" or invite friends into their homes for turkey dinner on the holiday weekend.
What better way to make the infidels love you.
"How can we bring ourselves to congratulate or wish people well for their disobedience to Allah? Thus expressions such as: Happy Thanksgiving, Happy Birthday, Happy New Year, etc, are completely out," it says.
In 2003, the Khalid mosque, which mainly serves the Toronto Somali-Canadian community, apologized for a newsletter that compared wishing someone a Merry Christmas to congratulating a murderer.
Makes perfect sense!
Also banned, it says, are: watching sports or soap operas, walking dogs, family photos, wedding bands, Western hats, mingling and shaking hands with the opposite sex.
They're quite comprehensively Islamic. Not watching TV shows. It's the way of the infidel plus it's a waste of time -- time that could be better spent praying or raising money for your brothers in need (the Jihadists). Not walking dogs. Dogs are filthy creatures. Muhammad loathed them and ordered that they be killed. No family photos. Photography is haram since Muhammad was against the drawing of animated forms. No wedding bands or hats. Again, it's the way of the infidel and a pious Muslim just doesn't imitate the vile kafir. No mingling with the opposite sex. Plain gender apartheid. See Saudi Arabia and Iran.
"Allah and his messenger have warned us against following or imitating non-Muslims in things which are characteristic of their religion or beliefs. This is more emphasized in the case of their eids [festivals] or occasions, which always hold some religious or ideological non-Islamic meanings, and on which the kuffaar indulge in many evil practices."
Yup. It's not good enough that Muslims don't celebrate Christmas or partake in Thanksgiving. These activities must be EVIL!
It's amazing how casually these assholes call the most regular, harmless things evil but when you ask them to condemn Hamas or Hezbollah, they tie themselves in knots.
