In a Friday sermon delivered in El Bagour, Egypt, Dr. Abu Bakr Al-Qadi called to wage Jihad against the infidels in their own lands. Stressing that he was not talking only about defensive Jihad, he said: “I am talking about seeking out the infidels on their own turf,” and, if they refuse to convert to Islam, imposing the jizya poll tax on them or fighting them “until the word of Allah reigns supreme.” “Islam alone should rule the world,” said Al-Qadi. The sermon, delivered in the Ubad Al-Rahman Mosque in El Bagour, was posted on December 17, 2017 on a YouTube channel dedicated to the mosque’s sermons.
