This is an older article that aired in 2017, but the problem needs to be brought up again since there’s reports of an ISIS fighter running loose in Toronto.
The article was first published on the now diminish website CIJ News.
Masjid Toronto mosque in downtown Toronto is affiliated with the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC).
The mosque operates in two locations in downtown Toronto: Masjid Toronto at Dundas (168 Dundas St. West) and Masjid Toronto at Adelaide (84 Adelaide St. East).
Dr. Wael Shihab was appointed in April 2014 to a full-time resident Imam of the mosque Masjid Toronto.
Shihab has a PhD in Islamic Studies from Al-Azhar University and he was the head of the Fatwa (Islamic opinion) Unit of IslamOnline.net (English website) and the Shari’ah (Islamic Law) consultant of the Shari’ah department of Onislam.net.
He is also a member of the International Union for Muslim Scholars (IUMS) headed by Sheikh Yusuf Qaradawi, who played a major role in launching both aforementioned websites.
The following are some of Shihab’s views as presented in articles and Islamic rulings posted on Onislam.net:
The solution to the global violence, extremism and oppression is Islam.
Qaradawi’s book “Jurisprudence of Jihad” should serves as a guidance to Muslims.
Thieves’ hands should be chopped off no matter their social status.
Person who underwent gender reassignment surgery should return to his original gender.
Muslims should avoid gays as homosexuality is evil and succumbing to the temptations of the Satan.
Wife should not reject her husband’s call for having sex. And so on…
