Grand Imam of Al-Azhar Thinks Atheists Are Seeking to Undermine Islam

The Grand Imam of Egypt is upset that Atheists have been using simple logic and comprehensible explanations to convert the youth away from Islam.

The AhlulBayt News Agency reports:


he Grand Imam of Egypt’s renowned Sunni institute of learning, al-Azhar University, explained that atheists developed their opinions in the 18th century with some degree of politeness and respect toward those who believe in God but contemporary atheists, particularly after the events of September 11, have declared war against all religions, especially Islam.

He added that one of the major causes of the spread of irreligiosity and atheism in the Islamic world is that some Muslim youth do not have the support for firm thinking and belief and cannot assess what they hear, especially since those who spread atheism spread their ideas with simple and comprehensible explanations for the youth.

“Experts in psychology and large financial institutions support these ideas and the danger of these institutions is that their ideas can be considered as the weapons of the West,” he stressed.


In conclusion, the Grand Imam urged the Muslim community to take action to end the phenomenon of atheism and said that the only way to end atheism is to disseminate correct religious knowledge in schools and universities and to have mandated theological and philosophical courses.

Please Note: Before you jump on the "ermahgerd Islam" wagon - let's remember that the other side of the Abrahamic coin has their crazies too.

Hey there.

It's annoying to me that there are these so-called Christians that make those of us that love the good book look foolish.

But on the point of what this Imam said, does any atheist disagree with his assumption that atheists would rather be soon rid of Islam?

I'm interested to see the answers.

It's kinda funny...

The vast majority of atheists I come in contact with just happen to be of a certain political persuasion that actually coddles Muslims as a protected class of people.

Atheists undermining Islam? Hell, they're helping to spread it.

This character is like a cardinal for the RC'S, of course he wants more followers for Islam. Somebody's got to keep the organized religion multi-level marketing program, their pyramid scam, going.

Islam is just the other side of the same coin, just different name.

This Grand Imam of Egypt is weak in his faith. If GOD is on his side, no Atheist group, or other religion, is a threat to Islam. Shame on him for being fearful like this! tsk tsk tsk...

Basically you're saying that you're anti-Muslim and a Christian.

Because they don't like your religion either, you think they are defending Islam.

Nothing new.

Strategic, long-term social engineering?

Sometimes I think that's what they're up to. More often, though, I think we give them far too much credit. It's more likely they simply hop on whatever social justice bandwagon is trending on Twitter. Sure, those generating and controlling the dialogue know what's up, but Joe Atheist on the interwebs?

Just going through the machinations prescribed for him by social media and poop culture.

um well yes, many of us are actively working on criticizing the plethora of bad idea's contained within Islam, and other religions of course, but Islam gets special attention at this juncture in time.

You're not listening to the right atheists.

Please provide an example of me helping to spread Islam, thank you.

You, fortunately, do not fall under the "vast majority" moniker.

You have your own brain, and use it.



I knew one (so far) of you guys would be in here to point out "not all atheists" deserve the criticism.

And you would be correct. Not all. Only the vast majority.

Hey. You agree with me. Go back and give me a star brother. That's the ATS symbol for "agree". Let's me know somebody of your persuasion believes I'm on to something.

fair enough, though I would argue it is not their atheist beliefs that compel them to become Islamic apologists, it is their naive progressive and new age liberal beliefs that obscure their moral clarity.

I don't think it's the "vast majority" as you claim.

I think it's that they often react to your "Christian > Muslim" argument as one that they also don't agree with, so you claim that they are defending Islam.

It's very irritating when Christians do this. It's like when you rat-out your sibling for breaking the T.V. because you're getting in trouble for not doing the dishes.

At what point did I say anything about Christianity?

Christianity isn't even relevant in this discussion.
