Muslims in the West Are to Serve as Islam’s ‘Eyes,’ Says Fatwa

Muslims in the West Are to Serve as Islam’s ‘Eyes,’ Says Fatwa BY RAYMOND IBRAHIM for PJ Media

Not only are Muslims living in the West supposed to hate their “infidel” host nations and neighbors; they are supposed to spy on them by serving as Islam’s “eye” on the West.

As discussed here, numerous online fatwas—that is, decrees written by authoritative Muslim scholars (ulema), appearing on respected Islamic websites—insist that Islamic law (shari‘a) requires Muslims living in the West to maintain “enmity and hatred” for their new homeland and its inhabitants.

Published by the well-regarded Muslim website,, and titled in translation (all translations in this article are my own), “What Is the Ruling for Living in the Lands of Infidels,” it, too, states that, along with “preserving and upholding his Islam,” the “first condition” for any Muslim who lives among non-Muslims is that he/she has “enmity and hatred for the infidels, staying far from their loyalty and love—for loyalty and love for them contradicts the faith.”

Next, the fatwa states the first reason any Muslim should ever willingly move to the West:  to wage jihad—which belongs in the “lands of the infidels”—but in this case, by way of da‘wa, or proselytizing. In the words of the fatwa:

He resides to call [da‘wa] and entice [non-Muslims] to Islam, for this is a form of jihad, which is a communal obligation for those capable of it….  [Moreover] da‘wa to Islam is one of the obligations of the religion.
