From the cradle of revelation and birthplace of Prophet Muhammad, I call on leaders and scholars of the Islamic nation ~Ummah to carry out their duty towards Allah, and to stand in the face of those trying to hijack Islam and present it to the world as a religion of extremism, hatred, and terrorism, and to speak the word of truth, and not fear anyone.
Our nation ~Ummah today is passing through a critical, historic stage, and history will be witness against those who have been the tool exploited by the enemies to disperse and tear the nation and tarnish the pure image of Islam.

Lesson: Esteemed Ulema are for women’s rights.
You – my brothers and sisters – have rights that we strive to achieve all matters that are for your pride, your dignity and your interests.
Lesson: Respect others.
You and Iraq are in my heart, but that man is not.
