  • Jazak’Allah, this ia a very informative and hopeful lecture.

    How can we get access to the list of action points that Imam Yahya mentions towards the end of the lecture so that we can do ‘our little bit’ to help?

  • Very informative lecture.I have checked the resources mentioned in
    the video and found it credible.

    However,I would like to highlight the plight of the Christians
    In the Middle East ,in particular ,the community in Mosul ,Iraq.
    They were given the option by ISIS to either convert to
    Islam,pay tax,flee or die.The last of the Christians there
    have fled.

    Strangely,there was no global outcry on this matter.
    Why the silence?Why are Muslims silent on this issue?

    In my personal opinion ,”apartheid” or “genocide” is not perpetrated
    by Zionists alone.Any human being or group with a distorted sense of
    superiority and hating diversity,be it racial or religious will undertake
    this crime against humanity.

    • What you mentioned in Iraq is completely different matter.

      There is no compulsion in Islam.

      In Iraq what is happening is what has created by war done by USA. They had killed Millions of Citizen in Iraq, destroyed completely every thing and the people has become devoid of every basic necessities( if you see in western countries if their is unemployment they used to attack other nationalities ) They iraq citizen feel they are in this situation because of christian so they are mistakenly doing all this because they are deprived of everything. They are being attacked.

      “There shall be no compulsion in [acceptance of] the religion. The right course has become clear from the wrong. So whoever disbelieves in Taghut and believes in Allah has grasped the most trustworthy handhold with no break in it. And Allah is Hearing and Knowing”

    • Do you ever wonder why the so-call the Islamic Caliphate that supposedly is the care taker of Muslims seem to be ubiquitously quiet about the iniquitous murder in Gaza ?! They seem more keen on slaughtering Muslims and driving an ancient people from their homes; and that silly idea of forceful conversions is just as insane.

      Open your mind Sharon; what is really the point of ISIS, where does it really come from and why is doing what it is doing ?
