DOES THE WEST HAVE A PROBLEM WITH SALAFISM OR ISLAM?

Sheikh Haitham al Haddad explains in his own brilliant way that when the western thinkers, politicians and media say they have a problem with Salafism, we need to ask them to define what they mean because they have a problem with Islam and following the Quran and Sunnah.

The Sheikh who I’ve been listening to a great deal lately and had the chance to meet at the Sabeel midlands retreat recently has also by the will of Allaah changed my own views, that as Muslims we are not guests here in the UK, Europe or the west, and have as much right to articulate our own view on how things should be as anyone else.

That it is only through such rigorous debate and discussion we can create the space we need to promote and practice our deen openly without embarrassment or fear.
