PERSONAL ACCOUNT of a DESTORYED MARRIAGE
Dawud Adib is seriously sick and perverted old man (61 years old as this is written) and should be no where near a stage where he can continue to do harm.
My personal dealing with that man is that during the time that I respected him, I had him to come do marriage counseling for me and my wife of the time. To make a long story short, he advised us to divorce. Unbeknownst to me, within hours of HIM advising us to divorce, Dawud calls my wife and tells her that since we are getting divorced, he would like to marry her. So they begin a phone relationship during the iddah period and he subsequently marries her (to my shock) as soon as her iddah was up only to leave her hanging and divorce her a few weeks later. I only learned of what happened with the phone relationship once my (now) ex-wife told me (after she realized that he had gotten what he had wanted and left) what happened between them.
Wallahi, Wallahi, wallahi that man is a pimp of the worse kind and uses his fame, position and speaking ability to troll for women to have sex with. After my personal experience with that man, I found out that he had been married dozens of times and liked to marry women for a few days to “taste” her then divorce her. It is well known that once while on a speaking tour in Indonesia, he married a young virgin girl for the time he was there,
deflowered her, and then pronounced talaaq on her on his way out of the country.
I ask those ever fewer people that defend this “elder” (a pitiful attempt to re-brand him) to show what he has built vs what he has destroyed…look at the communities that he had broken up…the marriages that he has broken up…the friendships that he has broken up. In contrast, where is the masjid that was established by Dawud Adib? Where is the Islamic School that was established by Dawud Adib? What Islamic organization was established by Dawud Adib? The man has been around for decades, and can’t claim to have done established anything but CAN claim to have gone around speaking and using his charms to swoon many women with his “Baritone voice”. Just ask yourselves, why has Dawud Adib spent decades jumping from imam job to imam job and moving from city to city like a snake oil salesman? There is the most damning proof if ever any more is needed!
Those who have been around for a while KNOW about this “elder’s” role in destroying salafi organizations such as the Quran and Sunnah Society with his vicious whispering campaigns. Then, even as recently as the summer of 2011, he was playing BOTH sides in the recent nasty split at TROID. Hedging his bet (as always) by befriending both sides and then tossing the loser overboard when the stuff hits the fan. He has always thrown stones, then hidden his hands and points to someone else. Need I mention the fitnah he created at Germantown Philly over Eidul Adha in 2010?
And that’s just it. Dawud Adib has created fitnah wherever he has gone. He has built NOTHING. If there is a long standing friendship, that man will not sit until that friendship is broken up. FACT: he was run out of Saudi Arabia for tale carrying while trying to break up a group of American brothers living in Riyadh that had been friends for years.
There are many across the country that are aware of Dawud Adib’s evil but say nothing either because they do not want to embarrass the salafi community as a whole or because they have dirt of their own that they don’t want exposed. Now they are going around town collecting money for this man because he is supposedly broke and in need of money to survive. Had he not stabbed so many dozens of people in the back over the years, perhaps someone would be willing to help him.
The example set by imams such as Dawud Adib, Abul Hasan Malik, Abu Usamah and others who have engaged in sexual misconduct and/or not taken care of dozens of children between them is that they SET THE EXAMPLE for the people on the ground. If you want to know why the salafis in Philly are so messed up? Look at who the leaders have been. They set the tone.
Finally, what does it say about the salafi community that with all of the above, the community continues to recycle these evil people? And then the people wonder why there is no progress???
