Sheikh Ma’moun Al-Rahma, the Sunni Imam of the Umayyad Mosque in Syria’s Damascus, told the interesting story of his abduction by the ISIS terrorists on television.
According to a report by Al-Alam News Network, as covered by Mizan, in part of his speech, the Sunni Imam of the Umayyad Mosque Sheikh Ma’moun said that ISIS elements had cut his ear and forced him to eat it.
Here is the video of his remarks:
Here is IFP’s translation of what he says in this video clip:
“He [an ISIS commander] ordered him [another ISIS element] to cut his [the Imam’s] ear, because he doesn’t listen to us. And they cut my ear. He cut it and asked me to eat it. Take it and eat. I told him, ‘this is not mine. My body is for God, and Allah is the one who has created it. If you are a Muslim, I should remind you that mutilation is prohibited by Islam.’ He once again said, ‘eat it’. He tried to open my jaw, but he couldn’t do it, even though my jaw was hurting. HeHHHe wanted to force me into eating it. Imagine your ear is cut and someone is trying to force you to eat it. Is there any human being that cuts his or her own body organ and eat it? It’s really strange.”
