Praying For Victory Over All Others

Canadian reformist Muslim Tarek Fatah wrote the following in the Toronto Sun, on Jan. 13, 2015:

“One of the reasons I avoid attending Friday congregations at mosques is a specific ritual supplication uttered by Imams at many mosques in Canada and around the world, just prior to our formal Friday community prayer, the Juma’a.

“In the supplication, the cleric prays to Allah for, among other things, to grant 'Muslims victory over the "Qawm al-Kafiroon,"' the Arabic phrase that lumps all non-Muslims — Jews, Hindus, Christians, Atheists, Buddhists and Sikhs — into one derogatory category, the 'Kuffar,' or non-Muslims.”
