By the decision of the Riyaset of the Islamic Community in Bosnia and Herzegovina, on June 19 the Ṣalāt al-Janāzah, the Islamic funeral prayer took place in Bosnia as well as in Raska, a region in southern Serbia inhabited by Bosnian Muslim majority who call it “Sandzak”.
The Janazah was served in absentia for the decades-long Muslim Brotherhood leader and former Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi, who died two days ago in the courtroom in Cairo.
In Serbia, in the area controlled by Muslims, in the Novi Pazar mosque “Shahid Abdulaziz” Janāzah and tribute to Muhammed Morsi was also held on June 19 and the service was led by Mufti of ‘Sandzak’ (Muslim attempt to rename the Rashka region in Ottoman manner), Senad ef Halitovic.
In the Sarajevo area, Ṣalāt al-Janāzah was served in three locations, in the Carem mosque in Bascarsija, the Istiklal mosque in Otoci and the Central Mosque in Ilidza, the Mufti of Zenica.
“During the Janazah in Sarajevo, I beg the Lord to be merciful to all the Muslims, especially Morsi, who is an example of a devout, honest and professional being and is a great pity for the Ummah (world islamic comunity) to lose him. He suffered for seven years, we can freely say that he is a martyr, because he is killed in the righteousness of God, he is a martyr. I ask the Lord to receive him as a martyr and forgive his sins,” – is what was heard during the Jenaazah in Sarajevo by local imam Kenan efendija Musić.
Musić stressed something interesting – that the janazah was served in honour of the first legitimate democratically elected man, president of a great Islamic state with the great potential of Ummah (unity of all the Muslims).
Support to fanaticism as a part of the identity:
Why are the Bosnian Muslims so devoted to late Morsi? Even though some could be surprised, this is absolutely natural and in the spirit of Bosnian Muslim ideology and their leader, Alija Izetbegovic. However, Izetbegovic, former SS Handschar member, espoused a violent Muslim fundamentalist ideology in his work, Islamic declaration, where is said:
“There’s no peace or coexistence between the Islamic faith and non-Islamic social and political institutions. There is a great reluctance in the West to recognize that the fighting in Bosnia is a resurgence of the conflict between Islam and Christianity which shaped five centuries of Balkan history. Muslim nations will never accept anything that is explicitly against Islam because Islam here is not merely a faith and the law, Islam has become love and compassion. He who rises against Islam will reap nothing but hate”.
“… A nation and an individual, who has accepted Islam is incapable of living and dying for another ideal after that fact. It is unthinkable for a Muslim to sacrifice himself for any tzar or ruler, no matter what his name may be, or for the glory of any nation, party or some such, because acting on the strongest Muslim instinct he recognizes in this a certain type of godlessness and idolatry. A Muslim can die only with the name of Allah on his lips and for the glory of Islam, or he may run away from the battlefield. …“
The first ritually beheaded Christians were Serbs in Bosnia.
However, A few years ago, Alija’s corrupted son, serbophobe and Islamist Bakir Izetbegovic provoked an international scandal. As if it was not enough that he was meeting with Islamist, (i.e. Muslim Brotherhood representatives), he greeted them with Rabia, the Muslim brotherhood symbol.
The Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs lodged a protest note to the BiH Embassy in Cairo due to the scandalous gesture which came at the moment when many attacks on Coptic churches and communities occurred.
Izetbegovic had shown the four – finger symbol in support of the Muslim Brotherhood which fights against general Sisi who deposed Egyptian President and Muslim Brotherhood leader Mohammed Morsi.
Mohammed Cengic, Bosnian Muslim Charge d’Affaires of the Embassy in Cairo, didn’t want to reveal details of the meeting in the Egyptian Ministry of Foreign Affairs then.
The next day, spokesman of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Egypt Badr Abdulati warned that Izetbegovic “should not interfere into internal affairs of the (Egyptian) state”.
