Islamic cleric tells young British Muslims it is ‘ACCEPTABLE’ to keep sex slaves

A MUSLIM cleric from a Cardiff mosque where three British jihadis are believed to have been radicalised has told young worshippers it is “permissible” to keep sex slaves.

Ali Hammuda is an Imam at the Al-Manar mosque in the Welsh city, and has been at this post since Nasser Muthana and Reyyad Khan, then 20, and teenager Aseel Muthana left for Syria in 2014.
Now the preacher has been secretly filmed telling a group of young Muslims it is acceptable to keep sex slaves and that the “end of days” is near.
The mosque is where three British jihadis were radicalised before heading to Syria
At a halaqa, or religious study circle, he told a group of young worshippers his interpretation of a Hadith, or a saying of the Prophet Mohammed.
He said: “One of the interpretations as to what this means is that towards the end of time there will be many wars like what we are seeing today, and because of these wars women will be taken as captives, as slaves, yeah, women will be taken as slaves.
“And then, er, her master has relations with her because this is permissible in Islam, it’s permissible to have relations with a woman who is your slave or your wife.”
The halaqa was reportedly advertised with a poster mimicking the British wartime slogan, saying: “Keep Calm and Come to Halaqa.”
It added: “Brothers only, ideal age 13-18. Followed by indoor football.”
Hammuda, who was born in Palestine but brought up in Britain does not point out to his group that slavery is both forbidden in Islam and illegal in the UK.

The recording was made just weeks after reports of Islamic State atrocities againstminority Yazidi women in northern Iraq in October 2014.
Moderate Muslim clerics moved to blast Hammuda, who has a reputation in Wales as an extremist.
Imam Shahid Raza told the Mail: “That Hadith is interpreted as justifying sexual slavery only by Daesh types.
“You have to realise that slavery is both banned in Islam and also banned by the law of the land.”
And Mohammed Sarul Islam said: “Hammuda is a controversial person not just in Cardiff, but in Wales.
“Everyone has cut off their ties to him. He is a radical.”
Hammuda last night condemned the actions and ideology of ISIS and said his words had been “taken out of context”.
He said: “I have lectured on this a number of times, including dedicating a number of Friday sermons to the condemnation of this evil phenomena.
“The undercover recording and quotations referred to seem to have been deliberately taken out of context to portray a religious perspective that I do not ascribe to.”
