Ali Hammuda is an Imam at the Al-Manar mosque in the Welsh city, and
has been at this post since Nasser Muthana and Reyyad Khan, then 20,
and teenager Aseel Muthana left for Syria in 2014.
Now the preacher has been secretly filmed telling a group of young
Muslims it is acceptable to keep sex slaves and that the “end of days”
At a halaqa, or religious study circle, he told a group of young
worshippers his interpretation of a Hadith, or a saying of the Prophet
He said: “One of the interpretations as to what this means is that
towards the end of time there will be many wars like what we are seeing
today, and because of these wars women will be taken as captives, as
slaves, yeah, women will be taken as slaves.
“And then, er, her master has relations with her because this is
permissible in Islam, it’s permissible to have relations with a woman
who is your slave or your wife.”
The halaqa was reportedly advertised with a poster mimicking the British wartime slogan, saying: “Keep Calm and Come to Halaqa.”
It added: “Brothers only, ideal age 13-18. Followed by indoor football.”
Hammuda, who was born in Palestine but brought up in Britain does not
point out to his group that slavery is both forbidden in Islam and
illegal in the UK.
The recording was made just weeks after reports of Islamic State
atrocities against minority Yazidi women in northern Iraq in October
Moderate Muslim clerics moved to blast Hammuda, who has a reputation in Wales as an extremist.
Imam Shahid Raza told the Mail: “That Hadith is interpreted as justifying sexual slavery only by Daesh types.
“You have to realise that slavery is both banned in Islam and also banned by the law of the land.”
And Mohammed Sarul Islam said: “Hammuda is a controversial person not just in Cardiff, but in Wales.
“Everyone has cut off their ties to him. He is a radical.”
Hammuda last night condemned the actions and ideology of ISIS and said his words had been “taken out of context”.
He said: “I have lectured on this a number of times, including
dedicating a number of Friday sermons to the condemnation of this evil
“The undercover recording and quotations referred to seem to have been
deliberately taken out of context to portray a religious perspective
that I do not ascribe to.”
