I can see it now... When Mohammad al-Jafir, a disgruntled college drop-out in Sparkbrook logged on to al-Awlaki and Khan's extremist Muslim website, he had an ephiphany. "It was one of those religious, bolt-out-of-the-blue religious experiences you hear about", he told our reporter doday. "Suddenly, I understood my purpose in life. I understood what Allah wanted me to do." That day, al-Jafir became a convert. He had a calling. From now on, he would singlemindedly focus his entire existence on that one shining goal: to become a baker. "To make something so delicious from just a bit of flour, water, eggs and sugar... to create a delicate masterpiece that lights up people's faces and makes their day just that little bit better... to be able to affect people's lives at such a fundamental level... that is the most powerful rush you can imagine. You feel like the hand of God. Since he enrolled in the NVQ-2 for pastry chefs, al-Jafir has been converting the masses in his own unique attempt. He spreads leaflets with cake recipes for beginners. He hands out baklava at the local mosque, and preaches the delight of good food and the noble act of feeding the hungry. He randomly leaves boxes of cupcakes on buses and park benches. He goes to Muslim schools and teaches baking. His feeling is that such purposeful and pleasurable creative activities may give students a new insight into Islam. "Ours is a culture of sweets and pastry, good coffee and tea going back millennia", he says. My belief is that Allah wants us to sample and enjoy the foods He has created for us." Man's purpose is to make food, not war. Eat, pray, love. That's my motto". His young customers at the mosque seem to agree. "In the past we used to fight with the local White Brits. But when you have had some of those delicious cakes, and you are all mellowed out by the sugar and carbohydrates, well, you discover that those Brits have some really rather good cake recipes. And the Hindus, they really understand their sweets. So now we exchange recipes, teach each other how to make baklava, battenberg cake, profiteroles, Arab honey cake... Life's too short to argue. There's too much baking and eating to do."
