US Muslims Working for Justice with a New President

0 9

Many Americans may see the election of Joseph Biden (D) as a shift, not only in the country’s leadership but also in the overall tone of the nation, which was saturated with intolerance, bigotry and violence against minorities under the current administration.

FEED THE POOR

Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

Prior to his election, Trump voiced biased rhetoric against Muslims. He has said, “Islam hates US,” and instituted policy like the Muslim Ban after his election.

He also created policies separating immigrant families and promoted violence against police violence protesters.
