A western Sydney sheikh placed in the crosshairs of Islamic State has defiantly vowed to continue his work and says he is “unconcerned” by threats on his life.

Sheikh Shady Alsuleiman, who works with young people to steer them away from crime, was one of three n Muslim leaders named in an Islamic State propaganda video released on Sunday night.

The terrorist group called on its followers to kill the trio and other Muslim leaders worldwide because they had discouraged violence in the name of Islam and encouraged people to follow the laws of the land.

The Grand Mufti, Dr Ibrahim Abu Mohamed, and the NSW Police Force chaplain Sheikh Ahmed Abdo were criticised in the video for working with government and police.

Sheikh Shady responded on Tuesday, saying he was not surprised that Islamic State labelled him “an apostate” and called on followers to “murder me”.

“[It] confirms in no uncertain terms, that the beliefs, teachings, and ideology of this group, ISIS, are not in harmony with the religion of Islam,” he said.

“Many n imams, including myself, have publicly denounced and preached against the hateful and murderous teachings of ISIS – stating publicly on countless occasions that the ISIS way is not the Islamic way.

“I am heartened to hear that ISIS themselves agree – confirming that mainstream Islam, which the vast majority of the world’s Muslims adhere to, is not what they preach and the recent video is a big proof of that.”

He said he was undeterred in his mission to teach and practice “true Islamic teachings” and the principles of humanitarianism, including sharia’s teaching to respect and abide by the laws of the land you live in.

“As for the threats on my life – I am unconcerned,” he said.

“I have complete faith and trust in almighty Allah (God), who will choose a suitable time, place, and method of my departure from this world. This is a matter for Allah (God), over which, no one else has authority.”
