A dangerous “Islamic scholar,” Cleric Daniel Haqiqatjou, and his wife, Umm Khalid, are radicalizing Muslims in America. The couple founded the sharia-adherent Alasna Institute, which offers an online homeschooling program for children and educational programs for Muslim adults. This Islamic supremacist couple is indoctrinating Muslims in America and teaching them how to live according to sharia.
Islamic law (Sharia) is antithetical to the U.S. constitution. Sharia is opposed to “religious freedom, freedom of conscience, and the free exchange of ideas.” Furthermore, it is “violent, openly bigoted toward non-Muslims, discriminatory, and unflinchingly sexist. Large sections deal with the practice of slavery.” Once Muslims implement Islamic Law, it becomes “mandatory for Muslims to fight those Jews and Christians who will not convert or accept inferior status.”
Haqiqatjou, also known online as the Muslim Skeptic, was born in Houston, Texas, attended Harvard, and is now considered an expert in Islam. While at Harvard University, he majored in Physics and minored in Philosophy. Haqiqatjou also completed a Master’s degree in Philosophy at Tufts University and studied traditional Islamic sciences part-time.
The mainstream Muslim scholar is infamous for spewing hate towards America, gays, Jews, and non-Muslims. He proudly defends Islamic terrorist regimes, murderous radicals, Islamic slavery & sex slavery, and killing apostates. Furthermore, he promotes Islamicly justified beatings of wives and family members, sharia coverings on women, and the Islamic belief that women can not be leaders.
Haqiqatjou’s wife, Umm Khalid, grew up in Egypt and attended private school until she graduated the third grade. Her family then immigrated to America, where she attended public school in New Jersey. Umm often discusses the horrors of attending public schools in a “Non-Muslim country” with “non-Muslims.” However, she went on to attend college in Boston at Harvard University. Like her supremacist husband, Umm has radical views that are threatening to non-Muslims.
RAIR Foundation USA has highlighted Daniel Haqiqatjou and Umm Khalid’s troubling statements in the following report. We encourage readers to please report any additional information related to this couple to firstname.lastname@example.org. We will update this article as more information comes to light.
Defends Islamic Slavery & Sex Slavery
Haqiqatjou defends Islamic slavery and sex slavery. A large part of Islamic law is dedicated to the practice. Slavery is deeply embedded in Islamic law and tradition. According to the Religion of Peace,
Muslims are encouraged to live in the way of Muhammad, who was a slave owner and trader. He captured slaves in battle; he had sex with his slaves; and he instructed his men to do the same. The Quran actually devotes more verses to making sure that Muslim men know they can keep women as sex slaves (4) than it does to telling them to pray five times a day (zero).
Since Muhammad was a slave owner and the Quran permits slavery, Muslims in the West, like Haqiqatjou, will justify slavery under Islam since it is a part of the Quran.
Preaches Sharia Punishments
Twitter banned Haqiqatjou for saying someone should be flogged for insulting another poster’s mother.
His views and teaching are in accordance with an Islamic doctrine. He believes that sharia should be the supreme law of the land and throughout the world. Furthermore, sharia is divine and thus superior to any human-made law, including the U.S. Constitution.
Apostates Should Be Killed
…I can concede and agree with secularists that the ideal form of governance is one that maximizes freedom, happiness, etc., as the atheists contend here. But by that definition combined with the Islamic position on what happiness, harm, etc., entail, that ideal form of governance is one that is determined by God’s law, which is the Sharia. In other words, if you anchor happiness and harm in reality, which we know through revelation not the blind musings of random atheistic philosophers, the secular ideal can be used to champion the application of Sharia… How does this relate to capital punishment for apostasy (which is the unanimous position of the scholars of Islam)? Well, insofar as the state is committed to maximizing happiness and minimizing harm, then Islamic governance should institute severe punishments to deter acts of apostasy given that apostasy threatens the happiness in this life and the next of other members of society. In this way, apostasy is not a neutral act. It is deeply, catastrophically harmful. And so, *of course* it should be deterred in severe terms by the state authority (NB: not vigilantism). This is the wisdom of the Law Maker and His Messengerﷺ and the recognition of that wisdom by 1400 years of scholarship across the Islamic schools of thought. It is really quite a simple argument. And you can see that the apostates didn’t have a response.
Those who turn their back on Islam are to be executed. The words and deeds of Muhammad confirm this. Therefore, the only freedom of belief in Islam is the freedom to become Muslim.
Daniel Haqiqatjou’s wife, Umm Khalid, an Egyptian immigrant, implores Muslim women to share their husbands. She pleads to Muslim women that it is their Islamic duty to have a polygamous marriage.
Islam permits a man to have more than one wife. Thus, a Muslim man can marry as many as four women at a time and have sexual relations with an unspecified number of slaves as well. The Islamic prophet Muhammad had eleven wives at one time.
Wife beating is a right says under Islam states Haqiqatjou.
Islam says power should be distributed across kinship groups and this means that the patriarch has authority to physically discipline members of his family including his wives if they violate important norms and values.
Now let’s ask women if you violate the law shouldn’t you face consequences and if you have to face consequences who would you rather meet out those consequences the cold iron fist of the bureaucratic technocratic state or the person who loves you the most in the whole world.
Islam allows a man to hit his wife. According to her testimony in the Hadith, Muhammad physically struck his favorite wife for leaving the house without his permission. However, no one knows how he treated his less-favored wives.
Celebrates Taliban Takeover and Implementation of Islamic Law (Sharia)
Haqiqatjou was one of the many mainstream Muslims who celebrated the Taliban’s takeover of Afghanistan. On his Facebook, Haqiqatjou posted the following statement’s praising the Taliban’s implementation of sharia which angers the “Kuffar”. The word Kuffar, or kafir, is a derogatory Arabic term used to describe an “infidel” or non-believer.
“May Allah bless and give continuous victory to those who establish the Sharia of Allah on this earth, despite the fact that the kuffar and the hypocrites hate it. You make the Ummah proud!”
Hate of America and Non-Muslims
After a U.S. drone strike following the terrorist attack on the Kabul airport killed civilians by mistake, Haqiqatjou prayed that “Allah protect the Afghan Muslims from the evil that Western’ kuffar’ continue to inflict upon them.”
Haqiqatjou’s hate for non-Muslims is not surprising. As reported by the Religion of Peace,
Islam is a supremacist ideology in which the role of non-believers is subordinate to the position of Muslims. Those who resist Islamic rule are to be fought until they are either killed or fully humiliated and forced to acknowledge their inferior status by converting to Islam or by paying a poll-tax and otherwise accepting the subjugation of their own religion.
Hatred of Jews and Israel
In March 2020, Haqiqatjou was scheduled to speak at an event sponsored by the Muslim Students Association (MSA) at York University in Toronto, Canada. However, the event, which was part of Islam Awareness Week, was called off after several Jewish organizations protested the antisemitic scholar. As a result, Haqiqatjou’s previous hateful comments were called into question.
In an article and Facebook post written by Haqiqatjou in 2019, he slammed Minnesota Democrat congresswoman Ilhan Omar’s (staged) apology over “antisemitic” remarks she made. He condemned the Muslim congresswoman for showing remorse to her “Zionist masters.” He went on to claim that “Zionists control every level of U.S. government.” Furthermore, he expressed his anger that as a Muslim, Omar would support transvestites and Jews,
As an American Muslim, it warms the cockles of my heart knowing that Ilhan represents me.
One week, she is dancing and partying with cross dressers and demanding that trannies be allowed to compete against women in power lifting competitions. The next week, she is begging Zionists for mercy in a humiliating display of self-flagellation. Girl power!
According to Canadian Jewish News,
In a June 9, 2017 item on the Muslim Skeptic website, titled Israeli Logic, Haqiqatjou compares Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, to Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler, using an image of a massive Nazi rally to illustrate his point.
A Jan. 10, 2019 story titled, Pornography as Israel’s Weapon of Choice, claimed that in 2002 Israel occupied Ramallah television stations and broadcast pornographic images. Calling Israel a “Zionist terror state,” Haqiqatjou wrote, “the promotion of base desires” is a “weapon that the agents of Shaytan (Satan) are using in full force today.”
In a Feb. 12, 2019 article in Muslim Skeptic, titled Naughty Ilhan Learns a Valuable Lesson From Her Zionist Handlers, Haqiqatjou not only claims that American Senator Ilhan Omar has “Zionist masters,” but that, “Zionists control every level of U.S. government.”
A Feb. 18, 2019 article in the same web page titled, University Prof. Claims Israel Is Testing Weapons on Palestinian Children, quotes an article in which a law professor cites Palestinian children for the claim that Israel tests new weapons on them.
The story includes a photo of Netanyahu juxtaposed next to one of Hitler, along with the claim that, “It doesn’t take a genius to see the parallel between what Israel is doing to Palestinians and what history books describe the Nazis doing in conducting cruel, inhumane, genocidal experiments on their captives.”
Celebrates Brunei For Reinstating Islamic Law on Stoning Gays
On March 30, 2019, Haqiqatjou posted a link on his Facebook to an article titled: “Salute the Sultan! Brunei Reinstates Hudud [prescribed Islamic punishments] for Sexual Deviance”, accompanied with the following statement “When will other Muslim countries follow suit?”
Haqiqatjou’s statement and article were written about Brunei’s decision to impose sharia. Under Islamic law, Brunei began punishing sodomy, adultery, and rape with the death penalty, including stoning and theft with amputation.
Haqiqatjou celebrates gays being punished in the article, stating, “just the news to cheer you up. The Muslim country of Brunei is implementing hudud to crack down on sodomites and fornicators!”
He then quotes a Reuters story saying Brunei implements “Islamic laws that would allow death by stoning for adultery and homosexuality.” He praised the implementation of sharia, stating,
The Sharia [Islamic Law] protects all of our rights, individually and communally. When rectum-sex enthusiasts are allowed to promote their gender-bending degeneracy openly, that deeply harms all of us. That brings down the moral character of society. That destroys the sanctity of marriage. That teaches the world that sexual desire — no matter how base, how deviant, how contrary to God’s will — is acceptable to pursue and, in fact, must be pursued.
Haqiqatjou encouraged Muslims to show their support for Brunei’s decision by vacationing there. He mocked Western politicians and celebrities who disagree with Muslim countries imposing sharia, stating,
..how silly that these Western politicians and celebrities can’t stand it that a Muslim country implements the Sharia. They are frothing with anger. Isn’t it great?
Haqiqatjou previously stated that American Muslim leaders desecrate the image of Islam by supporting LGBTQ in any way.
Jokes About Throwing Gays Off Buildings
On Twitter, before Haqiqatjou’s account was suspended, he joked about killing homosexuals, something that happens in Muslim countries. He posted,
“Oh man, I missed the International Day Against Homophobia. The best way to celebrate such a beautiful, momentous, important day is the Muslim way: Recreational Base Jumping!”
Then he went further posting,
“Nothing shows solidarity for LGBT like extreme sports!”
When confronted by people on Twitter, he doubled down posting,
“Wow, some people are associating my love for recreational base jumping with something entirely different JUST BECAUSE I AM MUSLIM. That is ISLAMOPHOBIA. What century is this, bigots?”
Islam goes beyond merely disapproving of homosexuality. Sharia teaches that homosexuality is a vile form of fornication, punishable by death. Muslims have punished homosexuals by beating, flogging, hanging, stoning, torturing, shooting, and throwing them off buildings.
Former Muslim Abdullah Sameer posted a video on his YouTube channel addressing Haqiqatjou’s homophobic tweets about killing gay,
It is unequivocal that Daniel Haqiqatjou and his wife, Umm Khalid’s actions and words demonstrate that they are working to install sharia and radicalize Muslims in America. However, despite the many examples of Haqiqatjou’s dangerous views, the left continues to promote him, and the U.S. authorities allow him to operate freely.
After Muslims murdered twelve people in Paris, France, at the offices of Charlie Hebdo for violating Islam’s blasphemy laws, and four more for being Jewish, CNN published an article named, “Muslims cannot get a break.” They proudly cited radical Haqiqatjou, who mocked the belief that Muslims had anything to do with the Islamic terrorist attack. Meanwhile, if CNN had done basic research, they would have understood Haqiqatjou’s allegiance and sympathies were aligned with those who carried out the Muslim terrorist attacks, not the victims. Even Haqiqatjou’s left-wing alma mater, Harvard, still proudly displays his works.
Why is the United States government allowing Haqiqatjou’s Alasna Institute, a quranic homeschooling program for 3 to 10-year-olds, to be accredited in different states? Is law enforcement investigating what is being taught at the Institute? Are they monitoring the families and adults signing up for the couple’s controversial courses and certifications? Or are they ignoring this troubling couple and their Sharia teachings out of fears an investigation would lead to accusations of “Islamophobia?”
