Shaykh Muhammad Ibn Ismail delivering a Friday sermon at the Water Lily, London this afternoon had some strong words to share for his fellow Muslims.
Referring to the challenges of Islamophobia and cultural changes in Western societies he said ‘Doing nothing is not an option’ and urged Muslims to be ‘activists’.
If the Muslims did not become activists, he warned that the ‘narrative will be created for us’.
The full sermon can be viewed above.
