No words would be more comforting right now other than His:
لا حول ولاقوة إلا بالله
lā ḥawla wa lā quwwata illā billāh
“There is no might nor power except in Allah.”
O you who have believed, seek help through patience and prayer. Indeed, Allah is with the patient. (2:153)
Although we fall through the stereotypical cracks, BLACK MUSLIM (hijabi) WOMEN are going to get the most backlash from not only a racist America, but the racist West as a whole. Brexit and Trump’s presidency has revealed the true colours of the white supremacist West.
We are visual representations of everything Trump and his supporters hate. They don’t need to see our immigrant status or hear an accent or ask about our sexuality to hate us. I’m not saying that for oppression Olympics, but WE ARE MOVING TARGETS.
We are going to be the most vulnerable and affected, please don’t brush us over.
When people think of BLACK they think of MEN.
When people think of MUSLIM they think of ARAB.
When people think of WOMEN they think of WHITE.
Be extra supportive and protective of visibly Black Muslim Women. We’re VERY scared.
