    How the West was won, really

    Since stepping back on the dangerous dirt-roads of the entertainment world in 2006, with a gracefully extended beard and balancing a flickering candle of peace on the headstock of my once abandoned guitar, I have certainly not had an easy time explaining my apparent cultural relocation and choice of religion. These days, as the black

    ‘Alliance of Virtue (or Get Your Bags Together)’

    As we screech round the corner of another New Year, the past disappears further away into obscurity and I am soberly having to grapple with the fact that many youngsters’ ears have never even heard the Beatles song, Yesterday. It’s an ominous sign of age creeping up and tapping you on the shoulder like a

    Peace Notes

    In the name of God, the Giver of Peace Belief, Love and Peace for All Wouldn’t it be nice if we could all live together on earth in Peace? Imagine, there’d be nobody stealing; nobody hurting or killing; no one shouting or swearing or calling names, people would love and look after each other. Wouldn’t

    The song Midday (Avoid City After Dark) carries with it an important message, especially for young men and women living in the dark urban maze. Having gone through what most kids experience in that developmental age in the sub-gutters of Soho and the seedier side of the West End of London – and still remembering some

    The Muslim Citizen in a Global Village

    Why?  Why are Muslims presently being afflicted with trials, tribulations and disunity and how should the Muslim see him or herself in the Modern Global Village? Muslims vs The West?

    Celebrating the Prophet (peace be upon him)

    The Gift of Islam’s Peace & Light – Celebrating the Last of God’s Messengers In a fragile World where people are persistently rattled by the provocative chants of anti-Islam politicians and figureheads, claiming to promote in universal values, yet stoking the fire of fear and hatred against people of faith and love for the Prophet,

    Ten Promises To Peace

    What has happened to the Muslim Community since the Prophet Muhammad’s passing (peace be upon him) is anything but the message of unity, love and peace he delivered. Not entirely their fault because those who prosper by dividing mankind into collective groups, those who draw lines between people and families and then make deals with

    This Boat Called Near and Far

    Say: It is only inspired in me that your God is One God. Will you then surrender (unto Him)! But if they turn their backs, then say: I have warned you all equally, though I know not whether near or far is that which you are promised. (The Qur’an, 21:108-109) Unaware and Unprepared Many go
