5Pillars launches Speakers’ Corner

5Pillars proudly presents ‘Speakers’ Corner’, an exclusive section on our website specifically for scholars, imams, students of knowledge, activists, academics and leaders of different Muslim organisations.

Speakers’ Corner will entail a weekly article from a prominent Muslim figure discussing current affairs, or an area the author specialises in.

Readers will also be able to book speakers/scholars for local events and khutbahs via 5Pillars.

The main objective of Speakers’ Corner is to convey the opinions of mainstream representatives of British Muslims on everyday issues relating to the Ummah.

5Pillars being the biggest Muslim news site in the UK in terms of online traffic, felt we would be the best media outlet to facilitate a neutral, non-sectarian, non-partisan platform for mainstream community leaders share their views.

As you’re here…

5Pillars have one humble request from you…

Thousands of Muslims around the world visit our website for news every day. Due to the unfortunate reality of covering Muslim-related news in a heightened Islamophobic environment, our advertising and fundraising revenues have decreased significantly.

5Pillars is editorially and financially independent, with no sectarian or political allegiance to any particular group or movement. Our journalism has been exclusively grassroots focussed and our sole purpose is to defend Islam and Muslims in the media.

This makes us unique in comparison to other online Muslim media outlets who are neither independently regulated by a reputable body nor are they managed by qualified journalists.

Our journalism takes time, money and effort to deliver. But we do it because we believe we have a duty to Allah (swt).

You may not agree or like everything we publish. However, which other Muslim news site that is run by experienced journalists will take on the responsibility of being a shield for Islam and Muslims in the media?

If you follow 5Pillars, and you understand its importance in today’s climate, then please support us for as little as £5 a month, it only takes a minute to make a donation. Jazakallah khayran.

Our beloved Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said:“The best deeds are those done regularly, even if they are small.” [Ibn Mājah]
