Texas: Immigrant Imam Preaches to Muslims About Murdering Jews

More mass murder and Nazi Jew hatred from the “religion of peace”.

In his Friday, December 8, 2017 sermon titled “Our Duties Towards Al-Quds [Jerusalem]” at the Tajweed Institute’s Houston, Texas branch, the institute’s imam and founder, Sheikh Raed Saleh Al-Rousan, speaking in a combination of Arabic and English, referenced the widely quoted Hadith stating that on Judgment Day, the Muslims will fight the Jews and kill them, saying:

“My brothers, the Prophet Muhammad brought the good tidings, when he said: ‘Judgment day will not come until the Muslims fight the Jews. The Muslims will kill the Jews, and the Jews will hide behind the stones and the trees, [which] will say: Oh Muslim, oh servant of Allah, there is a Jew hiding behind me, come and kill him… This is the promise of Allah.” He added: “The hour [i.e. Judgment Day) will not start until Muslims fight the Jews there, in Palestine.”

The video of the sermon was posted by the Tajweed Institute on its Facebook and YouTube accounts.[1]

According to its Facebook page and its website,[2] the Tajweed Institute, which Sheikh Al-Rousan established in Florida in 2013, with its Houston branch opening in mid-2017,[3] is “a  non-profit, 501(c)(3), institute that strives to teach and spread the authentic knowledge of the Glorious Quran. Our goal is to spread the skills of Tajweed [correct recitation of the Koran]to all Muslims, young and old, so they can carry on this knowledge to future generations.​“[4]

Sheikh Al-Rousan, who according to the Facebook page was born in Jordan, has a Bachelors degree in Islamic Hadith from the Islamic University of Al-Madina, Saudi Arabia,[5] and, after arriving in the U.S. in 2007, earned a Masters in Islamic Studies from the Graduate Theological Foundation in Indiana. He has served as imam in mosques in Jordan and the U.S., including at Masjid Al-Qassam in Tampa, FL and Ebad AlRahman in Saint Petersburg, FL. Several YouTube videos, in both Arabic and English, show him teaching Quran recitation at various venues.[6] He has also led a Hifdh (Quran memorization) program for grades 4-9 at the American Youth Academy in Tampa.[7]

The Tajweed Institute Facebook page shows that Sheikh Al-Rousan teaches courses on Quran recitation and leads other events, for example, a February 5, 2016 fundraising event for the Austin Peace Academy,[8] an event at the Islamic Society of Arlington, Texas,[9] a November 11, 2016 Night of Quran Recitation at the Masjid As-Salam in Houston,[10] an April 155, 2016 event titled “The Successful Marriage” at the North Austin Muslim Community Center,[11] and a pre-Ramadan course at the River Oaks Islamic Center in Houston.
