He also justified Muhammad’s marriage to a nine-year-old girl and violent jihad against unbelievers. How many Muslim clerics are still in the United States who believe the same way Zoubir Bouchikhi does? There are likely to be many, since what he says here is standard, mainstream Islam, abundantly supported by the Qur’an and Sunnah. But one cannot ask such questions; even asking them renders one “Islamophobic.”
“Sheikh Zoubir Bouchikhi, Former Houston Imam Deported in 2011 for Immigration-Related Charges: Disbelievers Are the Worst of Allah’s Creations –Worse than Animals; We Should Completely Ignore Muslims Who Are Not Properly Observant,”, March 20, 2020:

Malaysia-based Algerian Islamic scholar Sheikh Zoubir Bouchikhi, who had been the imam of the Islamic Society of Greater Houston until he was deported from the United States in 2011 for immigration-related charges, taught a women’s class at Riyad Al-Jannah, the mosque in Malaysia where he is currently the imam. The video was uploaded to Riyad Al-Jannah’s YouTube channel on March 20, 2020.
During the class, Sheikh Bouchikhi said that Muslims should not try to hide aspects of the Prophet Muhammad’s life, like the fact that he was a warrior and that he married Aisha when she was 9 or 14 years old. He said that people only see this as immoral because of their “sick minds”and that only Allah decides what is moral. In addition, Sheikh Bouchikhi said that disbelievers are the worst of Allah’s creations, that they are worse than animals, and that Muslims should treat them accordingly and feel sorry for them.
He also explained that Muslims should ignore and not even visit or associate themselves with other Muslims who are not sufficiently observant, including family members like a sick uncle who doesn’t pray or a niece who parades around wearing a miniskirt. To further elaborate his point, Sheikh Bouchikhi referred to a verse in the Quran in which Allah commanded the wives of certain men who did not go to Jihad with the Prophet Muhammad to not speak to their husbands. Sheikh Bouchikhi added: “Their own children didn’t speak to them.”Sheikh Zoubir Bouchikhi, an Algerian native, had moved with his family to the United States in 2003.
Sheikh Zoubir Bouchikhi: “You have to fear Allah and speak the truth no matter what, especially about the Prophet Muhammad. You [shouldn’t] feel like: ‘I’d rather hide this side of his life…’He got married to a very young girl. This is not hidden because it’s not wrong. It is just in our sick minds.
