The cases of Ahmaud Arbery and George Floyd are stark reminders of the painful ongoing reality of our Black brothers and sisters in our country. As a Muslim community we pray to Allah to give relief to the systemic oppression that they continue to suffer and we pray that He facilitate means that are pleasing to Him for all of our community to support them against this oppression. The truth as revealed in the Qur’an is that we were created into nations and tribes that we should know one another. Accordingly, in these especially stressful times we should reach out to our Black brothers and sisters to try to understand their pain and our collective responsibility as an Ummah to help alleviate it by Allah’s permission. May we all be granted a state of Salaam (Peace) and Aman (Security) in our lives regardless of the “tribes” Allah created us as part of.
