In the UK we need an expression of Islam that takes into account the ‘urf’ (customs) of the British people, our culture and ways of doing things.

Customs are shaped by a variety of factors that has no basis on the post. Customs are still respected regardless as long as they don’t contradict something in Islam.
bla bla. What is actually meant by “expression of Islam that takes into account the ‘urf’ (customs) of the British people,” I know I get no answer.

Yes – but I sense this must (it will inevitably) go via a filtration process (existentially for everyone, right now; and yet intellectually on a deeper level, over time, via the scholars) – to discern what parts of ‘urf is halal (lawful), mustahab (recommended), mubah (neutral), makruh (disapproved) and haram (unlawful).
Halal: being civil to Muslims and non Muslims in the UK; obeying UK laws etc.
Mustahab: giving charity to the poor and needy, frequently.
Mubah: visiting Portsmouth.
Haram: drinking alcohol.
