Islam’s Outrageous Obscenities

Raymond Ibrahim is a Shillman Fellow at the David Horowitz Freedom Center, a Judith Friedman Rosen Writing Fellow at the Middle East Forum and a CBN News contributor. He is the author of Crucified Again: Exposing Islam’s New War on Christians (2013) and The Al Qaeda Reader (2007). 


Islamic TV personality, Abu Islam—the man who made international headlines when he insulted Christianity and tore a Bible on camera to screams of “Allahu Akbar!” and later incited Muslims to rape female protesters—unwittingly insulted Islam’s prophet Muhammad in a way that would have caused much of the Islamic world to riot and call for his death (if he was a non-Muslim).

This occurred during one of Abu Islam’s recent TV shows, which revolved around attacking Egyptian commentator and comedian Bassem Youssef, whose popular jabs frequently target Islamists, including President Morsi.  In retaliation, Abu Islam spent a large segment of his show insulting Youssef.  Yet, unlike the latter’s well-received jokes which are primarily based on wit and innuendo, the cleric relied on hurling ugly obscenities).  Among other things, Abu Islam swore to Allah that according to Sharia law, because Youssef is a “pretty boy,” he is required to wear a niqab, or face veil, to cover himself up like a woman.

Abu Islam hurled even worse insults on the comedian, which he tried to justify by referring to the teachings of Islam. He told Muslim viewers who would condemn his use of vile language, “Shame on you Muslims; learn your religion well.  The Koran itself curses them, curses the likes of Bassem Youssef, those before him and after him.”

He went on to give examples, quoting verses Koran verses that refer to infidels as “dogs,” “donkeys,” and “cattle.” “Are these curses or not?” asked the cleric. “Well, it’s your lord who curses, who insults…. Cursing and insulting is from Allah almighty, praise and glory to him.”

Next Abu Islam moved to the Sunna—along with the Koran, the second pillar of Sunni Islam, the words, deeds, and recommendations of Islam’s prophet, Muhammad, and his companions as documented in hadiths.  Said Abu Islam:

Now hear the words that the prophet counsels me to use against people like you [Bassem Youssef].  He tells me to tell you “Bite your father’s penis, and do not whitewash.” In other words, I’m supposed to tell you to go bite your father’s male member, but I’m supposed to use the real word [“penis”] without whitewashing.  The prophet orders me to mention your father’s male member, but without whitewashing [instead of saying “male member” he should say “penis”].  You see how well-mannered I am—I cannot even bring myself to use the words the prophet commanded me to use on you.  I just can’t do it!

As for Muhammad’s closest companions, he quoted Abu Bakr, Islam’s first “righteous caliph,” telling someone, “Go suck on al-Lat’s clitoris!”  Al-Lat was a pre-Islamic goddess of Mecca, whose image was subsequently destroyed on Muhammad’s orders.

When Abu Sufyan finally converted to Islam and asked Muhammad what he should do about the large idol statue of al-Uzza, another pre-Islamic female goddess of Arabia, Islam’s second “righteous caliph,” Omar al-Khittab, responded, “Go take a sh*t on it!”

Abu Islam is not the only popular Muslim cleric to justify his foul mouth by referring to Islam and its founders.  Here, for example, is popular Sheikh al-Huwaini—who likens the face of women to their vulvas—also quoting and explaining the “Bite your father’s penis” hadith in graphic detail.

Likewise, Al Azhar graduate and professor of Islamic interpretation Sheikh Abdullah Badr is also on record trying to justify his use of foul language by referring to the same hadiths (he got in trouble when he publicly referred to a popular Egyptian actress as a “whore.”)  Ironically, he is also the same sheikh who publicly swore to Allah to cut the tongue out of the mouth of anyone who insults Islam and its Sharia.

As a more moderate cleric pointed out in a TV show dealing with Sheikh Badr’s claims that the prophet and his companions were cursers and insulters, “If one of Islam’s opponents made such assertions, the whole world would have stood up in objection to such words.”

Indeed, while non-Muslim YouTube videos portraying Muhammad as warlord prompt riots, deaths, and groveling from Western politicians, Muslim portrayals of the prophet and his companions as vulgar and foul-mouthed pass in silence.

Which leads to the greatest irony of all—a sort of “strike back” from the God of the Bible: the same Abu Islam who tore and desecrated the Bible, unwittingly went on to tear into and desecrate the image of his beloved prophet Muhammad.  Recall that, after he quoted Muhammad’s words “Bite your father’s penis, and do not whitewash,” Abu Islam insisted that he could not bring himself to say “penis,” but did whitewash, constantly using the word “male private member.”  As he put it: “You see how well-mannered I am—I cannot even bring myself to use the words the prophet commanded me to use on you.  I just can’t do it!”

The meaning of this is clear: the foul-mouthed, rape-advocating, Bible-tearing Muslim cleric, Abu Islam, actually sees himself as more moral and “well-mannered” than his prophet.

Is this not a greater insult to Muhammad than a movie made by non-Muslims who may be expected to be irreverent?

    That whole article for the last sentence? Thanks a lot.

      Bottom line: Islam is incompatible with western values, regardless of this or that outburst/obscenity. The fact of the matter is that it is inextricably tied to blood, and its adherents worship a "hero" who was a pedophile, and worse.
      So, what else is there to say, other than Islam must be reformed, otherwise its barbarism will continue unabated – http://adinakutnicki.com/2013/02/06/islam-barbari

        Very true, they don't respect life either….When people hate they destroy rationality and peace!

    "Among other things, Abu Islam swore to Allah that according to Sharia law, because Youssef is a “pretty boy,” he is required to wear a niqab, or face veil, to cover himself up like a woman."

    These guys get aroused by anything without a beard. I'm not even sure if the beard stops them, but it takes away one of their accusations I suppose. So why are goats raped so often? I guess as long as the beard is not visible…it's all OK with Islam.

    Dear Jihadis,

    We will never respect you. There is no reason to expect respect from anyone who has the facts about you.

    "Now hear the words that the prophet counsels me to use against people like you [Bassem Youssef].

    So your manners are better than those of your supposed prophet even according to you?

      So in other words your a muslim supporter and sympathizer?

  • geneww1938

    It is natural to expect vulgar speech and actions from any group that has their faith and lives based on a book written by Satan. If you do not believe Satan wrote their book, you best do some research.
    Eternity is to long to be wrong.

      You're right about the origins of the Koran, Jesus told the disciples to shake the dust off their feet and move on if people didn't want to hear what they had to say. He didn't instruct that those not accepting his message should be killed or subjugated. Also, compare the eternal rewards offered in the Koran to what Satan offered Jesus when he was in the wilderness ("all this will be yours if you only bow down and worship me…"). The suras that promise an afterlife of hedonistic luxury are exactly designed to appeal to man's basest instincts; the ones commanding that the infidels be killed or subjugated are designed to appeal to bloodlust. "Allah is the greatest of deceivers…" What does that imply? The Bible states unequivocally that Satan is a liar; the Koran proudly speaks of Allah's deceit and trickery.

    Thank you Raymond for titling this piece "Islam's outrageous obscenities" and not "Islamism's outrageous obscenities."

    Muhammad would roll over in his grave if he knew what they are doing,they are down right stupid and should sleep with pigs and have sex with them….

    RE: "Islam’s Outrageous Obscenities"

    Israel first became a nation in 1312 B.C. two thousand years before the rise of Islam!

    GOD GAVE the Land of Israel to the Jewish People.

    ~And G-d does nothing by accident!

    • defcon 4

      Israel and the Jewish people are perhaps the only example in recent history of a native people regaining their land from islamofascists.

  • watsa46

    For the US left, the enemy is everything to the right. Islam and Muslims are a non-entity. Therefore no need to worry.

    "In other words, I’m supposed to tell you to go bite your father’s male member".

    Call me crazy, but i can't help thinking that there is some similarities between these nutjobs and the likes of Bill Maher.

    .
    The 'modern' sexual depravity of Islam is nothing new. This is a quote from the 8th century:

    Quote:
    This nation are very lascivious* and in need of sexual gratification. Every law
    instituted for them, be it by Muhummad or by any other god-fearing person, is
    despised and dismissed if it is not instituted according to their sexual pleasure.
    But a law that fulfills their desires, even if it is instituted by a nobody among
    them, they accept; and they say to each other: “this has been instituted by the
    prophet and messenger of god”. Chronicle of Zuqnin.
