The Sheikh quoted verses from the Quran including:
"And We have not sent you, [Muhammad], except as a mercy to the worlds." Quran Verse (21:107) and "Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good advice.." Quran Verse (16:125)
In his speech Sheikh Sudais explained how 'blood' in Islam is protected, which means killing anybody Muslim or Non-Muslim is one of the biggest sins in the sight of Islam.
He asked Muslims to leave judgement regarding people's faith for Allah (God) & their actions for this life in the hands of the law and authorities.
Sheikh Sudais urged Muslim Communities in UK & everywhere to follow regulations and law of the societies in which they live. He asked everybody to be a messenger of peace anywhere they go or wherever they are.
He also said that one should lead by example, good behaviour and commitment to being righteous in your dealings is the best way to show the real image of Islam through the Quran and the Sayings of the Prophet (pbuh) and the best way to defending your faith against those who misunderstand or those who try to deface Islam. It is also the best way to bring up your children on the right Islamic path.
