I know it's been a while but I'm happy to release my latest spoken word video, please share and enjoy!
So sick of this superficial concept of "shame" and "honour" that exists in some Muslim communities. A girl is raped and she is afraid to tell her family because that would bring shame on their name, are you kidding me??? I've even heard cases where a muslim woman is in the water drowning and the family doesn't want a non-mahram male lifeguard to save her or give her CPR because of the way that...

Black Muslims Matter / Anti-Black Racism Webinar

Hosted by Boonaa Mohammed Featuring Dr. Abdullah Hakim Quick, Dr. Donna Auston and Imam Shadeed Muhammad

It's been a very emotionally draining week, dealing with the backlash from Muslims who feel that anti-black racism is not a topic worth discussing or that the events at #RIS2016 should have just been swept under the rug. I've had to block many people from my page who insisted on using offensive slurs against me because I've decided to speak up and approach this topic unapologetically.

To be...

For those of you still questioning the reality of Anti-Black racism amongst Muslim communities, here is an example of a whole campaign that was launched in order to stop our own Arab and South Asian Brothers and Sisters from casually referring to Black Muslims as "Abeed" (slaves). When you don't even see us a dignified human beings and instead refer to us as personal property, there has to be...

Check out this interview I did with Shaykh Abdullah Hakim Quick for my #HangoutShow called "Being Black and Muslim" which ties in a lot of the points we will be discussing on Sunday during our "Black Muslim Matters" online webinar
Following the recent controversies at #RIS2016 and the anti-black sentiments shared by Hamza Yusuf alongside the dismissal Black Muslims received from many of his followers, I decided to offer the muslim community some closure on this issue and thus I will be hosting a Facebook live event next Sunday featuring a panel of some fantastic speakers who will discuss the realities of race and...

I'm glad Sh. Hamza Yusuf clarified his statements at #RIS2016 and it takes a big man to own up to mistakes. I don’t believe he had malicious intent and hates black people or is a racist at heart. He has more knowledge in regards to Islam than I or most people will probably ever have, but the moment someone starts speaking about social injustice and racism from the perspective of a white man,...

Very sad to hear about the murder of two Somali sisters in Ottawa who were very active in the community. Their brother has been charged with both murders and it seems like he may have suffered from some type of mental health issue.

I think a real conversation around mental health especially within the East African community needs to occur because I am familiar with too many cases where...

Some of you may have heard of a sister in New York who went missing and afterwards claimed she was attacked on the subway and almost had her hijab ripped from her head. Unfortunately she has since recanted her story and has said that she made the whole thing up. She is now being charged for filling the fake report, and she may actually have to serve some jail time.

This kind of lie...

Great post by investigative reporter @Azmat Khan

It took the rise of Donald Trump for many Americans to first learn about NSEERS (a post-9/11 registration program for non-immigrant males from mostly Muslim-majority countries.) But for years, many of us have been writing about this program and many others like it that disproportionately target Muslims.

Trump's rhetoric may surprise you,...
