The mainstream media is pushing the story that over 100 UK imams have refused to say prayers for the London terrorists. What they don’t (and won’t) say is that the Koran FORBIDS IMAMS FROM SAYING PRAYERS FOR JIHADIS.
Their refusal has NOTHING to do with condemning the actions of the terrorists, but that doesn’t stop the Muslim Council of Britain from pushing it out for the gullible mainstream media.

Jihad Watch reports:
The Muslim Council of Britain has gained worldwide headlines — and praise — for the announcement. Secretary of State Tillerson said Monday in New Zealand: “I was actually encouraged when I heard on the news this morning that a number of imams in London have condemned these attackers and said they will not perform prayer services over their funerals, which means they’re condemning their souls. And that is what has to be done, and only the Muslim faith can handle this.”
. . . . This all sounds great, but there’s just one catch: Muhammad is depicted in hadiths as forbidding funeral prayers for martyrs, and Islamic law forbids such prayers as well:
“Narrated Jabir bin `Abdullah: Allah’s Messenger used to shroud two martyrs of Uhud in one sheet and then say, “Which of them knew Qur’an more?” When one of the two was pointed out, he would put him first in the grave. Then he said, “I will be a witness for them on the Day of Resurrection.” He ordered them to be buried with their blood (on their bodies). Neither was the funeral prayer offered for them, nor were they washed. Jabir added, “When my father was martyred, I started weeping and uncovering his face. The companions of the Prophet stopped me from doing so but the Prophet did not stop me. Then the Prophet said, ‘(O Jabir.) don’t weep over him, for the angels kept on covering him with their wings till his body was carried away (for burial).’” (Bukhari 5.59.406).
The media spreading fake news? Color me unsurprised.
