He says: "Islam is not just a religion for me, it's a way of life. At all time I try to remember my God. Throughout the day, Islam allows me to stop and take time to reflect and make peace with myself.

"When I pray with a gathering, we stand shoulder to shoulder whether we are rich or poor because in the view of God, not one person is higher than another. Our faith is only for Allah, and not a show we put on for others to say how godly we are."
