We stands in solidarity


Live Lecture 2  PM Sunday June 14th 2020 (Click here for video)

The Bilal Mosque Association stands in solidarity with the local and nationwide black communities. We mourn the deaths of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and countless other victims that have lost their lives at the hands of police brutality and white supremacy, and send sincere condolences and dua’a to the families of Mr. Floyd, Ms. Taylor, Mr. Arbery, and others who have been victimized. We recognize that these senseless acts of violence are a result of a fundamentally and historically flawed law enforcement institution. We encourage members of our community to peacefully protest racial injustices, and show up in large numbers to support the black community.

 

We recognize that there is significant work to be done in the Islamic community, and the Bilal Mosque community specifically, to combat anti-blackness. The Bilal Mosque family is comprised largely of black-identifying folks; the losses of George Floyd, Breonna Taylor, Ahmaud Arbery, and many others, hurt our community deeply, and we recognize that many of our own community members have been victims of violence or profiling at the hands of law enforcement. There is much work to be done to help support them and make their voices heard.

 

To that end, the Bilal Mosque vows to make a more concerted effort in learning from black voices, “unlearning” our current narrow understanding of the state and federal political systems, and including black perspective in our educational programming and community engagement. These efforts will take many forms, including but not limited to classes/workshops and open, consistent, and safe dialogue with local law enforcement, ensuring that black and other minority voices are represented. 

 

Next week, Bilal Mosque will host Imam Najib from MCCP to facilitate a livestreamed conversation on race in Islam, and a discussion on steps that the community can take to further amplify black voices and erase learned prejudices. Please stay tuned for more details. 

 

As Muslims, it is our duty to embody the change we wish to see in the world; we should all be honest and candid about our relationship with race with those around us, principally ourselves, and strive to have meaningful conversations with friends, families, activists, and educators. Please continue to donate, support, and be outraged at our systems; it is our duty to commit to the pursuit of justice for all. This is only the beginning, inshAllah.
