There is not al-Islam as we know it today separate from Black people, which is also why I am very uncomfortable with the language of “Black Islam”… we must resist using lazy tropes in looking at Black people within early Islamic history as well as what it means to be a “Black Muslim” today.
Now more than ever, we need your support…
The Muslim Vibe is a non-profit media platform aiming to inspire, inform and empower Muslims like you. Our goal is to provide a space for young Muslims to learn about their faith as well as news stories affecting them, so we can reclaim the Muslim narrative from the mainstream.
Your support will help us achieve this goal, and enable us to produce more original content. Your support can help us in the fight against Islamophobia, by building a powerful platform for young Muslims who can share their ideas, experiences and opinions for a better future.
Please consider supporting The Muslim Vibe, from as little as £1 – it will only take a minute. Thank you and Jazakallah.
