Shaykh Yusuf Estes Visit

It is with great pleasure that the Centre announces the attendance of Shaykh Yusuf Estes (USA) at the West London Islamic Centre & Jamia Masjid on Friday 31st October, when he will be delivering the Jummah Khutba Insha’Allah.

Loved by young Muslims and the young-at-heart brothers and sisters, who call him the "Funny Shaykh", children and adults all delight to hear Yusuf Estes talk about coming to Islam while trying to revert a dear friend and Muslim from Egypt to be a Christian. An amazing story, it can make you laugh and cry at the same time.

Raised a strong Christian and educated in Texas, he became very successful in the music industry and was a music minister and preacher of the Holy Bible. A U.S. federal chaplain and delegate to the United Nations Peace Summit for Religious Leaders, he now runs many websites dedicated to correct presentation of Islam.

His lectures in universities are for all faiths and even honourable rabbis, ministers, preachers and priests compliment his way of presenting a fresh and enlightening picture of Islam.

He works to share the peaceful and principled message of Islam to Muslim youth, new Muslims and non-Muslims in simple English terms, making it enjoyable and even humorous at times while referring to the Qur’an and authentic, Prophetic teachings and narrations.

Shaykh Yusuf will Insha'Allah be visiting the Masjid again in the near future, he will will also be delivering a 2 day Dawah Training seminar at Al-Muntada Islami in Parsons Green on the 1st and 2nd of November. Please visit for further details.

The Prophet (pbuh) said, 'Allah the Almighty has said: "Whosoever shows enmity to a friend of Mine, I shall be at war with him. My servant does not draw near to Me with anything more loved by Me than the religious duties I have imposed upon him, and My servant continues to draw near to Me with supererogatory works so that I shall love him. When I love him I am his hearing with which he hears, his seeing with which he sees, his hand with which he strikes, and his foot with which he walks. Were he to ask [something] of Me, I would surely give it to him and were he to ask Me for refuge, I would surely grant him it.' [Related in Bukhari]
