#IAmMuslimAndI Social Media Campaign
The #IAmMuslimAndI Social Media Campaign aims to promote #Muslims as everyday people doing everyday things to show that Muslims are regular human beings and not a group to be feared or hated.
#Islam teaches #peace #tolerance and #love. Anyone who goes against these fundamentals cannot be classed as following the teachings of Islam.
Within recent years, #Islamophobia has increased in spades. It is sad that the actions of a minority group who CLAIM to be Muslims are taken as a representation of Muslims as a whole. The violent actions of some are definitely #NotInMyName and cannot ever represent what Islam teaches.
God says that if a human being kills or harms another human being, it is as though he has killed or harmed all of humanity. This is the depth of the rejection of violence in Islam.
The #IAmMuslimAndI Social Media Campaign was started by Radeyah H. Ali in an attempt to educate #Islamophobes on the true meaning of Islam by showing them that Muslims are normal people who want the same things as they do – peace, love, prosperity, a good life etc.
To support this campaign, Muslims are asked to post on social media using the hashtag #IAmMuslimAndI and state at least one thing that they do that is considered “normal” / something that they love / something that they know to be true about Islam / something that describes them.
Non-Muslims who support this campaign can also use the hashtag #IAmNotMuslimBut and state something positive about Muslims and Islam that they believe and know to be true.
May God bless everyone who supports this campaign for their efforts in attempting to make the world a better place.
