By Shareef Muhammad

“Invite to the way of your Lord with wisdom and good instruction, and argue with them in a way that is best.” — 16:125

Islam is not an ideological vacuum; and as Muslims, our practice of faith cannot be separated from political, cultural and historical realities. Before Prophet Muhammad (saws) sent a companion to give da’wah (invite people to Islam) to a people, he would give instructions to the person of the nature of that society. Why? Because our Prophet (saws) understood, as we must understand, that social mores coupled with historical and cultural context was necessary to give da’wah that is relevant and effective. 

Al Hajj Malik Shabazz                         (Malcolm X)

As Black Muslims in America, we have needs that are endemic to our collective experiences. Centuries of enslavement, nearly another century of Jim Crow laws, and pervasive racially exclusionary practices have affected more than just the psyche of Black people in America — this history colors our culture and our politics. Many may wince at the term “Black Muslim” and point out that one’s skin color is not a factor in the eyes of Allah (Subhanahu wa ta’ala) and not something that will determine the fate of our souls. They are correct. It is also true that ignoring race and ethnicity in favor of a “color-blind” approach to Islam is an ideal far removed from reality; and one that only seems to apply to Black Muslims.
