Running for Uxbridge, a suburb of northwest London, a young 25-year-old Muslim migrant will be challenging Boris Johnson in upcoming December 12 elections, Vice reported.


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.
