Khadar Bin Muhammad, the Imam of Masjid Bilal Ibn Rabah in Syracuse, NY, said in a video that was uploaded to a YouTube channel called “The 5:2 Initiative” on March 15, 2020 that when Allah decides to punish the infidels on their land, he may destroy anybody who is on that land.
He said that this should serve as a reminder to Muslims in the U.S. that they are living in a land of infidels and that Allah may punish them by such means as COVID-19 for “just chilling” while they are surrounded by evil sins like fornication, homosexuality, and alcohol consumption. Imam Bin Muhammad also sharply criticized women who are lackadaisical and lazy when it comes to covering their ears, necks, wrists, and ankles, and he stood up to demonstrate that a dress that exposes a woman’s ankles is too short.
He explained that these are all parts of a woman’s awra – private parts that women cannot show to men – and that showing these body parts is disgusting and impermissible. He added: “They are playing games [with Allah] like Jews.”
