Books with Black Muslims
Racism has no place in Islam! No place in any religion! No place in any country! No place in the world!
No place in our homes!
And yet, unfortunately, many times, our kids are raised in a bubble of only knowing their own culture or color and not experiencing anything out of it.
And that can create racism. Internally. Un-knowingly.
It is never too early to teach your kids to be anti-racist.
And we Muslim book bloggers and authors have put together lists of our favorite Black-led Islamic books, to help bring awareness to them and promote them!
Follow the hashtag #muslimbloggersagainstracism for all the lists. And make your own posts using this hashtag!!
We hope that in reading these books to our children, and talking about how racism is wrong, we are helping them learn to be anti-racist!

⭐️The truth is that we have a long way to go as an Ummah and we need to address these issues, even if it is uncomfortable. Islam is perfect, but we are not, and its time to talk about it, change our homes and our communities, and make sure our kids grow up in a much better world! A world without racism.
