A video of a Friday sermon before hundreds in Egypt capture this promise from a leading cleric: It’s only a matter of time before the flag of Islam flies above the White House.

The video, reported by The Arab World, quoted the cleric as saying this: “I swear to Allah almighty Sharia will be implemented, I tell you, not only in Egypt. Sharia will be implemented in and govern the entire world.”

The unnamed cleric went on: “This is the word of Allah and his messenger [Muhammad]. … I swear by Allah almighty, I swear, I swear the Islamic flag will be raised above the White House.”

The cleric said to be patient and for followers of Islam to keep working toward that goal, The Arab World reported.

“I swear by Allah almighty — I swear by Allah almighty this will happen,” the cleric said in the video.
