Okay From African Word Wokay - Hamza Yusuf

'Okay' is a word which originates from Africa according to the scholar, Sheikh Hamza Yusuf.

When the slaves came over from West Africa they used the word 'wokay' as a positive response to the slave masters' orders. This word was changed to okay and now it's recognised all over the world. Little did we know of the African origin of the word!

Invitation to Islam

Jesus taught people to do the Will of God (according to Mark 3:35) in order to become his brothers, mothers or sisters. A Muslim means one who submits to the Will of God. Do you want to become a brother/sister of Jesus? If yes, become a Muslim.

Once a preserve of Christian charities, Muslim-run food banks are now catering for diverse communities in need. Food banks in the UK are overwhelmingly operated by church-affiliated groups, including the 421 outlets run by Christian charity, the Trussell Trust. Yet Sufra, meaning “come to the table” in Arabic, is one of a growing number of Muslim organisations also attempting to tackle food poverty.
