My Interview with Imam Abu Usama over Gambian politics
I had a serious intense interview with Sheik Imam Abu Usama At-Thahabi yesterday at his Mosque, the prestigious Green Lane Masjid Birmingham. God-Willing, I will publish the finished material in the coming days.
The gap between secular politics and Islamic understanding of it is an important area which is not often address. The Imam was kind enough to allocate enough time in answering the questions pose to him.
He give straight forward wise answers. May Allah reward him.
The association of some members of supreme Islamic council to the secular Gambian dictator Yahya Jammeh is a worry. I put questions to him on those issues.
