So, we're going to Brexit are we? At 4:40am on Friday, June 24, when David Dimbleby declared that the Leaves had carried the day in the EU referendum it certainly felt like we were as good as out. But one very eventful month later the form of our future relationship with the European Union feels a lot less certain.
When we saw the data, frankly we struggled to believe what it was telling us. Totting up the totals up to Wednesday night, Vote Leave had 620.9k followers across Twitter, Instagram and Facebook, compared to Remain's 595.8k.
On Thursday 23 June, Britain will make a once in a life-time decision: should we remain within the European Union, or come out of it. As British Muslims we must play our role in this historic vote to decide the future direction of our country and Europe.
Vote Leave suggestions that life would be better if Britain votes to leave the EU is unfounded nonsense, and a hardline Tory-led Brexit could never live up to the presumptive promises they are currently making.
We as a country are perfectly capable of advocating women's rights without help from anyone else, especially overpaid Eurocrats. We must lobby the MPs in power, stand up for what we believe in and always vote. Voting to leave the European Union is the safest choice for women.
In just over two weeks time, the UK public will vote in a referendum deciding their membership of the European Union with much at stake, not least around the area of climate change.
As a young British European, the European Union facilitated my own aspirations to study abroad and do more than my parents and sister could ever dream of for me. The value I have derived from spending 12 months in another country and knowing I was one of the first in my family to attempt doing so was an important part of my life, and it has been priceless for myself and other working-class students.
When I recently told a colleague that I want the UK to leave the EU, she expressed considerable dismay that someone of my background - mixed-race, working class, comprehensive education - was lining up with far-right racists. Such a misguided view of the people who support Brexit does a disservice to the millions of Britons up and down the UK, who are now in a majority that understands why it is morally, politically and economically essential for Britain to leave the EU.
Whether you're campaigning to leave or remain, surely we can all agree that asking the poorest in society to shoulder the greatest burden is a raw deal? But by refusing to address the very real consequences of EU membership, the maths of immigration, and the required investment in public services, a raw deal is exactly what's on offer.
I never thought I'd see so many people so willing to surrender the only power we have to protect ourselves from tyranny.
