In this episode of the Blood Brothers podcast, Dilly Hussain catches up with the legendary Ustad Abdurraheem Green.
The veteran da’ee reflects on his personal evolution from playing a leading role in the fiery and arguably divisive “Salafi” dawah of the 1990s to a more inclusive and tolerant approach to dawah.
Ustad Green also explains how the message of all the Prophets (peace be upon them all) included both the glad tidings of Paradise and the warnings of Hellfire, stressing the importance of dawah organisations not to neglect or disproportionately focus on either.
Topics of discussion also include the challenges Muslim parents face when balancing love and discipline with children, and whether white converts to Islam are privileged and ignorant of institutional racism.

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.
