The Council On American Islamic Relations (CAIR) Orlando Regional Coordinator, Ahmad Abrar Saleem [pictured above], was nabbed by Lake County, FL law enforcement in a child-sex sting operation on 5/20/2015. Mr. Saleem’s intended victim was a 12 year old girl.
Two charges were filed by the Lake County Sheriff’s Office against Mr. Saleem. 1. “use of computer to seduce/solicit/entice a child to commit sex act.” 2. “Travel to seduce, solicit, lure a child to commit sex act.” Bail was set at $100,000 for both offenses.
Ahmad Saleem’s bail was paid two days after his arrest so he is walking the streets until his arraignment on 6/15/2015 at 8:30 AM.
The Aisha Defense
I believe Ahmad Saleem should be locked up and off the streets for the next hundred years but here in America even this child molester is entitled to his day in court.
As a devout follower of Islam, Ahmad Saleem would be well within his rights to initiate the Aisha Defense.
The foundation of the Aisha Defense is centered on the example provided by Allah’s messenger Mohammad. Islamic doctrine and theology teaches that Mohammad is a model for all mankind.
IqraSense.com a respected Islamic site states that Qur’an verse 33:21, “clearly tells mankind that Prophet Muhammad (s) was sent as a model for mankind to follow and the success in this life and the hereafter depends on following him.”
Therefore, Amad Saleem, has an obligation to follow the example of Mohammad to gain success in this life and the hereafter. A clever lawyer could make the case that Mr. Saleem was not following his own will but was victim of the undue influence of Mohammad himself.
The weight of the ‘Aisha Defense’ rests on the Hadith’s of Sahih Bukhari. Hadith’s are the collections of the reports, teachings, deeds and sayings of the Islamic prophet Mohammad. Sahih is an Arabic word that means authentic. The Sahih classification proceeds a Hadith of the highest level of authenticity and is second in importance only to the Qur’an.
The following Sahih Al-Bukhari Hadith tells of Mohammad marrying a young girl named Aisha at 6 years of age and consummating the marriage at 9 years of age. Mohammad was reported to be either 53 or 54 years of age when Aisha was 9 years old.
A Sahih Bukhari Hadith Narrated by ‘Aisha says, “that the Prophet married her (Aisha) when she was six years old and he consummated his marriage when she was nine years old, and then she remained with him for nine years (i.e., till his death). (Sahih Al-Bukhari, Volume 7, Book 62, Number 64; see also Numbers 65 and 88).”
Take a moment and let the gravity of this Hadith sink into your mind. The practice of Muslim men taking child brides, following the example of Mohammad, is well documented and continues at an alarming rate today.
In a May 16, 2014 Washington Post article titled, “Muslim clerics resist Pakistan’s efforts to end child marriage’ Naila Inayat goes into great detail of why child marriage is a current problem that needs to be condemned.
According to Ahmad Saleem’s bio, that has been scrubbed from CAIR Florida’s website, it says he is the son of Pakistani immigrants. On Mr. Saleem’s arrest report it states he is still residing at his parents opulent Orlando home.
According to this Washington Post article and the Sahih Bukhari Hadith one could conclude Ahamad Saleem may have been influenced by the culture of his parents native Pakistan and/or Allah’s messenger Mohammad.
It is highly unlikely Ahmad Saleem and his defense lawyers will use the Aisha Defense. By using the Aisha Defense, Ahmad Saleem will have to put Mohammad the Prophet of Islam on trial as well.
In this case, it would be tantamount to Ahmad Saleem slandering Mohammad to establish a moral equivalence for his sexually deviant behavior. Under Islamic law anyone who slanders Mohammad can be charged with a capital offense.
Ahmad Saleem’s boss at CAIR, Hassan Shibly tweeted shortly after Saleem’s arrest, “Nothing is more painful than hearing those who were entrusted with protector our children betraying that trust. 0 tolerance 4 such wicked ppl.” I agree with Hassan Shibly that Ahmad Saleem is ‘wicked’ for betraying the trust of children. By association Mohammad is also “wicked” for betraying the trust of Aisha when he consummated his marriage with her at 9 years of age. Does Hassan Shibly believe the messenger of Allah, Mohammad, is “wicked” for betraying the trust of the child Aisha at age 9?
