Its an interesting short excerpt from Shaykh Hamza Yusuf from a lecture in 2016.
Its only 3 mimutes and worth watching.
I heard a short part of a lecture from SHaykh Hamza Yusuf recently while passing while he was talking about oppression and how a Muslim should react.
The first one was thankfulness - Thank Allah (swt) that the oppression is not worse.
We sometimes get all caught up in slight problems and prejudice that Muslims face here in the UK, but when compared with what others have faced - Muslims and non Muslims, we should be immensely grateful.
there are many people who are suffering from oppression that we in the UK that have it cushy probably could never bear.
China is an especially egregorious one that most people are not aware of. Recent reports have suggested that up to a Muslim Uighur Muslims have been interned in re-education camps topull them away from their faith.
They are taught to replace calls to the greatness of God with greatness of state and their president. They are prevented from praying and from washing hands and feet as that is seen as a sign of practicing Islam. They are also forced to eat pork.
The chinese state here is deliberately targeting the faith of the Muslim community and there is very little outcry in the Muslim community.
