The world powers have unanimously condemned in strongest terms the enslavement and trading of African migrants in Libya. The United Nations, African Union and renowned celebrities have all damned Libyan Arabs for kidnapping, maltreating and selling Black Africans in open markets. But one organisation whose voice would have carried heavy weight was the Arab League. The world waited for the League to condemn what is considered the “most degrading treatment of a fellow human being” but to avail. The Arabic League’s failure to bash racist Libyan slave traders in the 21st century has worried the Imam of Detroit Islamic Center.

Imam Ceesay picking bones with the Arab League over Libya enslavement and trading!

“Shame on the Arab League for being silent on an issue that shakes all those who stand for truth, justice and respect for human rights!” Imam Ceesay told a congregation of Friday prayers. Imam Ceesay warned Libyan slave traders to borrow a cue from Satan [Iblis] whose arrogance had gone above board. “Iblis lost everything after refusing to bow down to Adam. He proudly refused to obey Allah’s command because he (a creation of fire) was better than a being that was created from black mud. Such an act invites Allah’s anger and wrath. Allah creates people of different colours, ethnicities or creed as signs of his power. He said the best among you are the pious ones. Allah honours those who possess knowledge and piety. In the eyes of Allah, skin colour means nothing,” Imam Ceesay said, warning Libyan Arabs slave traders to fear Allah and repent.

“Allah sees and knows your abominable act of enslaving, degrading and selling your fellow human being on the basis of their colour. A human being is an honourable creation of Allah who swears in the Quran that He honours human being. As a matter of fact, a human being must not be turned into a commodity. Why would these Libyan Arabs parade and sell human beings knowing that their act is condemned by Islam? Should these people call themselves Muslims?” Imam Ceesay asked.

    Not only on Libya but as it has just came in now today, the arabs have colluded with US to declare Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. So arabs have not failed us only but themselves entirely!

    • Imam young African should demonstrate in their capitals at libyan embassies around the world and we should boycott Libyan products, boo them in African sport venues.

  2. We should just be doing our own right way of doing things and not count on an Arab League. The Arab league are that Libyan kind of nasty trade’s board of executives. Some of the Arab royals up to date, have black people in their palaces as slaves. To most of them, it’s a serious infringement of their royal traditions that a palace is without black people serving as slaves. Perhaps a lot of contempt has been concealed for Bilal pbuh back in those times despite been so closed to the Prophet himself s.a.w.
    Islam is one thing and ‘Arab’ is another thing but Arabs don’t see it that way. They perceive that once one is Arab, one is Mulslim. To them teachings and deeds don’t count because God sees no problem with them, thinking being the selected and cherished ones of God. All those self proclaimed God’s guerillas of our times are not Islamic but racist warmongers. That is why they contract non Arabs and over-the-night-come-devout-Muslim Arabs as mercenaries in their racist warmongerings. If you listen to the average Arabs’ sincere view of Islam today, you’ll ask yourself, “but which Allah are they talking about?” To most of them, every black person who claims to be Muslim should pass the test of “placing a half tonner bolder on the chest”.
