O Muslim! Cast your vote! Its a trust!
Wednesday, 06 May 2015

We are British Muslims. Great Britain is our home and that of our coming generations. Our bond with Great Britain is exactly the same as that of any non-Muslim citizen. Here we enjoy the freedom to worship, and there are no obstacles before us in performing our prayers and building our mosques. The opportunity to benefit from the provisions and facilities offered to us by the government of this country, such an opportunity can never be imagined in the countries from where the first generation came from. For example, if our home is burgled at 2 am during the night, or our home catches fire, or we become seriously unwell, then merely by dialling 999, in a matter of minutes, the police, fire brigade, ambulance and doctor will be present at our doorstep. Important to note that they never question what religion we follow, rather they come to our assistance considering us to be fellow British citizens.

Today this government is seeking our opinion and our recommendation by means of the general election and the casting of votes, so that those who talk of our rights can reach Parliament through our votes. Hence this vote, to us, is a trust in order to safeguard our country and our coming generations....

The despicable attack at a school in Peshawar, Pakistan, leaving at least 132 children dead along with 9 of their staff members is a tragedy that has sent shockwaves of horror and grief across the world. With extremism, terror, death and destruction continuously visible on our television screens, it would seem as if the situation of the human condition could not get any worse.

Statement on the murder of Alan Henning Our National Hero
Saturday, 04 October 2014

Jamia Al-Karam, its students, scholars and graduate Imams, as well as the wider British Muslim community, stand united in condemnation of the brutal and cowardice murder of our national hero, Alan Henning, at the hands of ISIL. All thoughts are with his family and friends at this difficult time.

The evil of ISIL knows no bounds with its unimaginable brutality, violence and terror, being committed under the disguise of a deliberate misinterpretation of the religion that belongs to 1.6 billion people around the world. The murder of Alan Henning is the latest proof of the merciless nature of their humanity. For the timing to coincide with the pilgrimage of Hajj and the Muslim festival of Eid al-Adha, their utter disregard for the religion they falsely claim is manifestly clear....
