April Lecture Schedule – Sheik Dr. Nashaat Ahmed – Facebook Tadabbur

According to Al Jazeera Center for Studies, Shaykh Nash’at Ahmad is affiliated with the Egyptian Salafi movement which was subjected to security restrictions and even arrest and trial in various cases related to fatwas, or Islamic edicts, urging the support of Mujahideen (Muslims who engage in jihad) in Palestine and justifying the 9/11 attacks.

The following are excerpts from Shaykh Nash’at Ahmad‘s sermons in Egypt (originally in Arabic):

April 1, 2018 – “[O Allah] give us victory over the disbelieving people. Destroy [take revenge of] anyone who attacked and assaulted us. O Lord of the Worlds, destroy [take revenge of] the aggressors, the Jews, the Americans, the Russians, the Iranians… O Allah, purify the land of the Muslims from their filth and squalor…”

August 16, 2017 – “[O Allah], destroy [take revenge against] the Jews, the Americans, the Russians… destroy [take revenge against] the Shiites and the unjust rulers who attacked us.”

January 6, 2016: “O Allah, destroy the Jews and whom they ally with… count their number; slay them one by one and spare not one of them.”

January 2, 2016: “[O Allah] give victory to our brother in Greater Syria, Iraq, Egypt, Libya, Burma, Mali, Yemen and other Muslim countries… O Allah, take revenge of the enemies of Your religion. O Allah, destroy the Jews and all others who support them in countries around the world… O Allah, destroy the Russians, Hindus, Shiites Communists, destroy all those who attacked the Muslims. O Lord, count their number; slay them one by one and spare not one of them. O Allah, purify the Muslims lands from their filth and squalor, O Allah liberate the imprisoned Al-Aqsa [mosque].”

October 5, 2016: “[O Allah] Destroy the Russians and purify the Muslim lands from their filth. O Lord, destroy all aggressors, including the Shiites, Bashr [Assad], Alawites and others. O Allah, destroy the the aggressors who are the Jews and those who support them… O Allah, they corrupted your land and You do not like the corruption… O Allah, purify the Muslim land from their filth and squalor. O Allah, purify imprisoned al-Aqsa [mosque] from their hands [of the Jews] . O Allah, restore the Caliphate [Islamic State] for the Muslims.”

April 6, 2016: “O Allah don’t give the infidel or the oppressor a way to overcome us… Destroy the Jews, the Christians, the Americans, the Europeans, the Shiites, the Communists, the Russians, the Hindus, the traitors, the oppressors and the criminals.”

October 26, 2016: “O Allah, return the Muslims countries to the Muslims and purify [the Muslim lands] from the filth of the infidels and the polytheists [also identified by Muslim scholars as Christians].”

Ibrahim Hindy describes Egyptian Shaykh Nash’at Ahmad’s sermons as “anti-Semitic”

On April 3, 2018, Ibrahim Hindy, the imam of Dar Al-Tawheed Islamic Centre in Mississauga, Ontario, was interviewed by Newstalk 1010’s Jim Richards.

The following is an excerpt from the interview:

Jim Richards: Has your mosque ever been involved in one of the situations where perhaps a speaker, an Imam from another country was turned out to be a bit of an embarrassment for you guys?

Ibrahim Hindy: It did happen once. There was a request. Somebody came in to say, there’s a speaker, he’s from another country and he’s got these impressive credentials and can he come speak and, like I said, I’m one employee and I don’t have time to, like, check all his lectures, and actually that day my daughter was really sick and I took her to SickKids Hospital, she were there for a few weeks, and I didn’t even, I wasn’t even there. I didn’t meet this guy. Apparently, you know, he came, he gave a speech and, you know, he didn’t say anything really wrong in it, but then I found out later and I was embarrassed later that in other countries yet said things that really were anti-Semitic, not only anti-Semitic, a couple other things he said that were kind of hateful towards other countries and I had no idea, right, so I mean I felt embarrassed. I reach out to the Jewish community right after that cause I felt, I felt really bad about that, and you know it’s challenging, but we have to do better.


On December 13, 2016, Ibrahim Hindy posted (and later deleted the post) on his Facebook account the following:

“Join me tonight at Dar Al-Tawheed Islamic Centre after Isha prayers at 7PM. Shaykh Nash’at Ahmad, a well-known scholar from Egypt, will be speaking. I don’t know what the topic will be, as his arrival was made known to us last minute, but I’m sure that he will touch upon the recent tragedies in Aleppo.”
