London; Muslim woman punched in racist attack in Barking and Dagenham


abna

A woman wearing a hijab veil in Greatfields Park in Barking was repeatedly punched in the head by two white women who branded her a “Muslim terrorist”.

It was one of two racially-motivated incidents reported last week to anti-Muslim attack support service Tell Mama, which is run by the charity Faith Matters.

Although the woman didn’t speak English, her young child understood what the attackers were calling his mother, and alerted the police and the charity – telling them she had been left traumatised by the ordeal.

Fighting misconceptions associated with Muslim headscarf, Muslim students at California State University arranged a Hijab handout to their colleagues to educate them about criticism and negative image drawn by media over the past decade.
“The goal was to teach what Islam really is because there’s so much negativity going around about Muslim people who are portrayed so negatively in the media,” Amina Hasan, organizer for the Muslim Student Association (MSA), told Daily 49ER, the university’s news website, on Sunday, December 2.

Explaining Islam to Non-Muslims

Explaining Islam to Non-Muslims

How can we justify our belief system to them? Like the Hijab and the beard etcetera?

First of all, we don’t really have a good understanding of it ourselves. So we are dealing with it and what happens, any time you have a problem yourself, you are very defensive and self-conscious and defensive about it. For instance the beard. Do men in Islam grow beards? Are they suppose to? So I get a question, he comes to me and say, “sheik, do Muslims have to grow the beard?” I tell them, “No. Not the women,”. They don’t have to grown the beard. Can a woman grow a beard? No. That’s silly, isn’t it? So we say, Okay; Do Muslim men have to grow the beard? No. As a matter of fact they can’t. If a woman can’t grow her beard a man can’t grow his either, can he? Can you? Go ahead, let’s watch. Now you got the idea, didn’t you? Allah is the one who grows your beard, yes or no? Yes. And it’s Allah who told you to follow Mohammad (Peace and blessings be upon him). And Mohammad (Peace and blessings be upon him) told you don’t cut it off. Now there is the subject, isn’t it. It’s not growing it, it’s cutting it off. You don’t grow it. He (Peace and blessings be upon him) said leave the beard. He didn’t say grow it, he said leave it. Because if you leave it alone and it doesn’t grow, you’re not in trouble with Allah, are you? No. But if you cut it, then you disobey the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him). These people who shave everything off and leave one little tiny street down the side, like the stripes on a racing car, that’s a racing beard, or a little hanging down at the bottom, like a billy goat. You’ve seen this? You think it’s cool? I don’t know. I hope Allah doesn’t throw us in the fire for stuff like this, but it is not right to disobey the Prophet (Peace and blessings be upon him).
