A leading American Muslim group has invited Elon Musk for a dialogue to learn about Islam after he tweeted a “bigoted and nonsensical” graphic that used Islamic star and crescent as an example of being “brainwashed.” 


Feeding the poor and needy is an act that draws us closer to Allah. We earn His forgiveness, mercies and blessings through this act of charity.

“Anyone who looks after and works for a widow and a poor person is like a warrior fighting for Allah?s cause, or like a person who fasts during the day and prays all night. (Bukhari)

The tweet by the Tesla CEO and the Chief Executive Officer of Twitter showed Islamic star and crescent alongside other irreligious symbols, including the communist hammer and sickle.

Finding the tweet offending to Muslims, the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) invited Musk to a meeting with American Muslims to bring people closer.

“American Muslims can take a joke, but this was a very dumb joke. Associating a common symbol of Islam – the star and crescent – with both brainwashing and irreligious ideologies like Communism is just as bigoted and nonsensical as using a Star of David to target the Jewish community,” CAIR National Deputy Director Edward Ahmed Mitchell said in a statement

“We invite Elon Musk to meet with American Muslims and learn about the truth of Islam. This will not only help him respect and better serve his diverse customers, but also perhaps bring him closer to the peace that money and fame can never buy.”

Disappointed Muslims

The tweet has also disappointed many Muslims who found it disrespectful to Islam.
