REFLECTION

”O people, your Lord is one and your father Adam is one. There is no virtue of an Arab over a foreigner nor a foreigner over an Arab, and neither white skin over black skin nor black skin over white skin, except by righteousness. Have I not delivered the message?” (Musnad Ahmad, Sahih) ~ From the Prophet’s Last Sermon

    Racism shouldn’t be tolerated at any cost. It is something very unfair for the victims and must be looked into. This is indeed a great initiative.

    Oh fab idea. Sadly have experienced racism a few times…but more since I started wearing hijab. Was told to go back home…but was born and raised in the UK and actually spoke better English then the person who told be to go back home!

      Such a sad reality. Its interesting how people get the assumption that hijab = being foreign or NOT being able to speak English. That’s the peak of ignorance. We have the choice to respond back with dignity and good manners ~ showing that Islam is peace and only peace.

    Yes in the last sermon our beloved Prophet (PBUH) declared, that an Arab has no superiority over a non-arab and vice-versa, and a white has not superiority over the black and vice-versa. If the teachings of the great Prophet (PBUH) are to be followed, the world would have been a better place.

    1. Amina Edota January 15, 2017

      I love that part of the sermon. Its a much needed reminder in our society today. The world would have been a much better place with the proper understanding of those words. May we be able to adopt it in our own personal lives.

    Great new feature! I’m not surprised that a lot of hate crime go unreported probably because it’s hard to distinguish or prove. For example how can you know for sure someone acted a certain way because of your skin colour, religion etc if they didn’t say anything racist.

    1. Amina Edota January 15, 2017

      You are so right, sometimes its more than just words. And the behaviour can be equally disruptive – it can cause emotional hurt.

    What does Racism mean to you?
    Treating others unfairly based on their skin colour/ethnicity/nationality.

    In what ways can you check racism in your home, school/work or community as a Muslim?
    Discussing the issue – raising awareness that it still does happen today and also supporting anyone who might the victim of racial abuse.

    1. Amina Edota January 15, 2017

      We do need to raise our voices in awareness and support victims indeed. Sometimes they wallow in their pain all alone.

  6. Nazima January 10, 2017

    This is a great initiative! We definitely need the Muslim narrative to be heard and social media is a great place to do it.

  7. MINA January 10, 2017

    Great initiative. Much is being spoke about this on social media these days, especially after the RIS event. We need to talk more about the racism within our community itself, how we can unite and support each other as one Ummah rather than isolating or looking down upon certain people.

    1. Amina Edota January 15, 2017

      Unity and support is a key point indeed. Why isolate others when we can only be stronger together?
