ECIC Letter of Solidarity


Dear Community Members,

We as a community have been watching the unfolding events throughout the U.S. in recent days with shock and sadness.  The protests across numerous U.S. cities, including Atlanta, and in many cities around the world show the extent of the pain, frustration, and anger with the unfortunate status quo of inequality, racism, and injustice. These events were triggered by the alarming death of George Floyd, but remembering Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor, Steven Taylor, and Yassin Mohamed, we know that this issue is much deeper than just one incident.

Did you know that getting shot by the police is now a leading cause of death for Black men and boys in the U.S.? 

For many years, we have witnessed and mourned the murders of these innocent Black lives violently taken by police brutality and white supremacism. The names above add to the long list of Black lives taken over the years with little or no accountability due to institutional racism and systematic oppression. 

The management of East Cobb Islamic Center recognizes anti-Black racism as a serious threat and condemns all forms of anti-Black violence. We take this opportunity to express our love and solidarity with our Black and African-American sisters and brothers, both within and outside our community. 

As a community, it is not enough for us to simply verbally condemn anti-Black racism. We must take action as well - starting with honestly acknowledging that racism and bigotry exist within our community as well, going against the teachings of Islam and basic human rights. In a study by the Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative on Intra-Muslim Ethnic Relations, 59% of participants reported experiences of ethnic or racial discrimination from other Muslims. 

“Oh, you who believe! Be persistently standing firm in justice!” [Quran 4:135] Let us fulfill our duty as Muslims and compassionate human beings by standing together in solidarity with our Black and African-American sisters and brothers by fulfilling these actions: 
 

  • Educate ourselves and our families about the injustices within many of our systems - many policies related to education, voting rights, economics, incarceration, and more are in place to oppress Black communities (see list of resources here).
  • Recognize and reject any racist notions we see and hear, especially those that are anti-Black - whether it is within or outside of our homes.
  • Watch documentaries such as UnMosqued with family and engage in discussions on how to actively make the community welcoming to everyone.
  • Vote for candidates who will fight on behalf of the community to change discriminatory policies, fight for prison reform, and abolish police brutality.
  • Hold our employers accountable for speaking out against racial injustice, if they haven’t already (see this template to get started).
East Cobb Islamic Center will not tolerate any discrimination or hatred towards any racial or ethnic group. Please reach out to us with ideas you have on proactively engaging our community in fighting systematic racism and engaging in conversations about racial injustice.

With best wishes and duas for peace,
JazakumAllahu Khairan
