Are Muslims fulfilling our directions from the Book of Allah to be people of justice by aligning ourselves with ‘woke culture’ or the LGBTQ movement? In this brief, Jumu’a Khutbah, Imam Dawud Walid talks about social justice and oppression and how we are to address these issues according to Islamic teachings.

“This Book I recently started reading is a fantastic book. It’s by, I think, one of the brilliant living Americans-Khalid Yahya Blankinship”
