Canada’s top Imam: “Islam has actually become a kind of solution for humanity”

Dr. Iqbal Al-Nadvi (Mohammad Iqbal Masood Al-Nadvi) is the Chairperson of Canadian Council of Imams and also serves as the Amir (President) of Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) Canada.

His previous positions include the following: Director of Al-Falah Islamic School in Oakville, Ontario from 2004 to 2011, Imam of Muslim Association of Calgary Islamic Center from 1998-2004 and as a member of the University of Calgary chaplaincy team.

Iqbal al-Nadvi was the keynote speaker at ICNA Canada annual convention “Carry the Light – “Canadian Muslim – Opportunities and Challenges” which took place on August 23-24, 2014.

In his speech “Making Islam a Choice: How Canadian Muslims Can Contribute?”, Iqbal al-Nadvi emphasized the important mission upon Canadian Muslims to carry out the Dawah, meaning reaching out to the disbelievers to make them accept Islam or become friends of Muslims. He added that Islam has become the solution for Canada and humanity.

The following are excerpts from his speech:

We know that we Muslims came here from different reasons… When we are here, it is our opportunity to say: O Allah, we are here to make Dawah [introducing Islam to disbelievers] or your Deen [religion of Islam] here, to be here and to introduce Islam to others…

The Quran says: كنتم خير امة اخرجت للناس You are the best people who are brought by Allah, Glorified and Extalted be He. Your are taken out from your position for humanity…

Our duty is not only to be a good person as an individual. It is also a good duty to train ourselves in

organizational structure, and to be, for example, a part of Ummah [Muslim nation] and any organization in which we are working, we are supposed to serve the Ummah [Muslim nation], to bring the Ummah [Muslim nation] back [to its glorious era].

In that sense our contribution will be here if make any kind of good side of serving the Deen [religion of Islam] or you can say remove any kind of bad thing…

It [following the teachings of Islam by the believers] will help to make, for example, Islam as a solution for humanity.

And when we are saying solution, it not means [sic] that we‘re asking everyone to be Muslim. It is not the issue. It is in the hands of Allah Glorified and Exalted be He.

But, in my understanding, the Dawah of Islam [introducing Islam to disbelievers] is actually containing also, if they are enlightened people, we remove their misunderstanding, and we are asking them, for example, to be a friend of Islam, a friend of Muslims.

If this, for example, making them, for example, Muslims, it is good, of course we wish to do it, but if not at least we can make them a partner of good things, we can carry the different kind of messages which is serving Islam, serving humanity and for examples shared by others.

If they are not ally [حليف] at least we say to them don’t be an enemy of Islam, maybe neutral…

Islam is actually become a kind of solution for humanity and it is only, we, I’m saying for example, we

if Allah Glorified and Exalted be He, uses us, it is best service we can do to make Islam a real

solution for humanity. If He do[es] this thing, I can say you that it will be not only for us and

this country [Canada] but for all humanity as well.”

On October 23, 2015, a few days after the landslide victory of the Liberal Party in the federal elections, Imam Iqbal Nadvi delivered the Friday sermon at Masjid Toronto Mosque (168 Dundas St. West, Toronto), which is affiliated with the Muslim Association of Canada (MAC).

Nadvi hailed the Muslim youths for mobilizing the Muslim community to vote in the elections and to help Muslim candidates to win their seats in Parliament.

He called on Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau to help the Muslim community realize its main objective of making the Islamic values “the best of human values” by promoting within the Canadian society the idea that Islam is not a threat but an ally, and by accommodating Islamic values.

Thus, he added, Trudeau, like his father, will leave after him a legacy, and “Allah will really use us [Canadian Muslims] here [is Canada] as a carrier of Islam, as a messenger of Islam.”

The following are excerpts from Imam Iqbal sermon (17:23-19:17):

“This election proved that the Muslims when they were targeted, they are not supposed to be targeted because they are contributing, and Praise be to Allah, they are back with the number of ten members in Parliament and also, for example, Praise be to Allah, a lot of groups especially the youths they, Praise be to Allah, they mobilized the [Muslim] community to vote and to participate, right? and to bring, what is important? The important, how we aid our Islamic values to make it the best of human values? How people realized it?

“I was suggesting someone that the previous Prime Minister the father [Pierre] Trudeau, he had a legacy, right?

This son [Justin Trudeau] has an opportunity to make a new legacy. How he can do it? If he just promoted in Western mind that Islam is not a threat. Islam is a nation, an ally. Islam is a very peaceful religion, and we Muslims we want to live as a part of this country. So, the fear factor supposed to be removed

If he brings where the Western system supposed to be, for example accommodating Islamic values, I can saw [sic] he will leave with a legacy even after he is not be a Prime Minister.

“So, this is a really great change and Muslims can help it and contribute to it, and we need, for example, to do this thing by making our efforts in Islamic terms good and also in the country level also good together. If he do [sic] this thing Allah will really use us here as a carrier of Islam, as a messenger of Islam.”

In an interview to the online show “The Muslim View” (the video was published on YouTube on November 16, 2015), Iqbal Nadvi revealed how the Canadian Council of Imams succeeded in having a meaningful impact in the last federal elections and helped Justin Trudeau to become the Prime Minister. The following is an excerpt from the interview (04:33-05:43):

Jorge E. Herrera:

“And the second reason that you had mentioned was with regards to community involvement. How has the community been involved with the greater Canadian community, within the Muslim community? If that makes sense.”

Iqbal Nadvi:

I’ll give you near example what happened in election. We mobilized our community with two things. First thing, they have to vote. Right? Because most of the time the survey said that Muslims are not participating in voting and some reason behind it Islamic.

They said: Religiously we are not suppose to vote. So we, for example, corrected their understanding and we pushed them to vote. This the first thing. And this time, see the results, the percentage very high this time.

“And second thing is that, we do not endorse any candidate, but we see that who is good for community and who is, for example, serving community and also Canadian greater values. So we support them.

And this time actually that the change that happened, I can say that it was one of the contributions came from Muslim community in a very strong and powerful way.”

  1. Islam is the problem, not the solution. Satanism is no alternative: Allah is Satan under an alias. “Islam 101 For Clergy & Congregants” and “Islam 101 For Politicians” were created to serve as a short course in the truth about Islam. Read’em and weep for civilization.

  2. what to rape little girls, would sooner become a satanist as even he looks like an angel to this bunch

  3. The Canadian Council of IMAMs is a FRONT for the Terrorist Organization “THE MUSLIM BROTHERHOOD”. Please refer to Attached article for more details.

  4. How about shove your Islam up your ass it will never fit into Canada you goat fuckers

  5. No, Islam has become a huge embarasment to humanity.

  6. Eliminate all that isn’t like him, the Hitler effect

  7. It’s coming…and the liberals are encouraging it…. ;).Sunny (Sunni) Ways…remember…


  9. ISLAM – A “SOLUTION”: What he means is – a) The MORE People (Men / Women and Children) we KILL. . . Lesser becomes the Population of the World. . .b) Then “WE” can have 10 Wives. . . EACH – between 10 and 15 Years – . . .and 50 Children (as $EX Slaves – from the Infidels – who are SO FATTENED and WEAKENED – they will TALK BUTT NEVER RESIST). . .and Our Agent Du Jour – Mullah TruDuh – will PAVE the WAY for Us. . . Backed by our Mullah Al Ghabra (The SAUDI Agent) and Sheikha Khalida (Hamas’ Representative) – BOTH in Mississauga / Ontario – PROTECTED by Mullah TruDuh’s FAIRY Godmother and their Agent – Bonnie Crombie. . .- – – . . . Yes! CA-NA-DUH. . . Is Back!!!

  10. Reach out to “make them accept”. Really. Not exactly a friendly approach is it.

  11. One of the best solution for it comes in many different sizes…22….38…(crap…been so long …don’t know the shell sizes)…but get the idea.

  12. What Quran is he following. Sharia law subjects women to brutality, there is no room for this abusive ideology on Canadian soil. If any of you Canadians support this Islam I want you to look at your mother, your sisters, your daughters and you tell them that you have their best interest at heart. Write Trudeau and tell him to go into the library and study Islam from it’s inception. Remember also the 6 year old girls that are being married to these 65 year old men. Think.

  13. Please deport this hate preacher !

  14. Please please don’t insult people ‘s intelligence!

  15. Biggest joke in the world! Lol! Look at those countries where Islam is dominant, Sudan, Afghan,Sadi Arabia,Lebanon, Syria,…..! If you want Canada to become one of them, you could follow them!

  16. They worship the devil and Satan does indeed want to take over the world.

  17. I wonder if the PM cabinet is supporting his cause.funding him.

  18. It is a solution. It will push us towards extinction

  19. In a way they’re right. Once Islam rules the world, there will be no humanity… so Islam; great solution 😉

  20. Fuck this asshole, he can go back to Saudi Arabia.

  21. I think that Islam is The Problem, or at least one of them.

  22. What time does his deportation flight leave?

  23. Solution as in final solution? If one believes in the bible (I don’t) you could imagine a scenario where nuclear Armageddon arises because of Islam, or to be more precise, the ridiculous people that practice it in places like Iran, Syria, Gaza and the West Bank. Solution for humanity my ass.

  24. It’s no solution for Canada. .it’s pure slavery if Sharia Law is installed in courts ..we have judges already .we don’t need Inman dictating to Canadians

  25. Then, why he doesn’t go back to the Middle East, or any other area of the world where Muslims are a majority and fix problems there?
