During a sermon in Boston, MA, Imam Abdullah Faaruuq said that the people native to America will never think of America as great until "you Europeans act right or go home. He said: "Go back to where you came from… [America] is not the land of the free and the home of the brave. It is the land of the coward and the home of the slave." He added that the future of America lies in Islam even if they "lied about all men being created equal," and said that Americans are outnumbered and afraid that their women will love Muslims or people of color. He also asked: "What's wrong with you, you sick Americans?" Faaruuq concluded by advising America to become Muslim and to "open the doors of this nation." Faaruuq, an American-born convert to Islam, lives in Boston, MA and is the Imam of the Mosque for the Praising of Allah. The sermon was uploaded to the mosque’s YouTube channel on February 24, 2017.
