Blood Brothers #4: Jihad, Rulers and Rebellion

In this epic episode of the Blood Brothers podcast, Dilly and Aki Hussain catch up with Shaykh Mohammed Osman (Abu Safiyyah), CEO of S.A.L.A.M Initiative.

Shaykh Osman for the first time shares in great detail his journey to fight with the Taliban against coalition forces, and his subsequent time in prison upon returning to the UK.

Topics of discussion also include the Islamic legitimacy of today’s rulers, and the historical and contemporary contexts of rebelling against regimes in the Muslim world to bring about Islamic change.





Support 5Pillars:

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]
