The Dar al-Hijrah Islamic Center in Falls Church, Va. will host an imam Monday who is accused of supporting the Muslim Brotherhood and terrorist groups.
In 2015, Egypt's Minister of Religious Endowments banned Sheikh Mohammad Jebril after Jebril gave a Ramadan prayer asking Allah to "punish those who have shed our blood and orphaned our children." He also prayed that manipulative members of the media and corrupt politicians would be punished. Jebril led Ramadan prayers in Cairo's oldest mosque, the 7th century Amr Bin al-Aas Mosque, since 1988.
Religious Endowments Minister Mohammed Mukhtar Jumaa also barred Jebril from leaving Egypt at the time and asked Egypt's television stations to keep him off the air.
