    Black Muslims often face unique social issues at intersections of faith and race.

    At the time of COVID-19 pandemic, the Black Muslim COVID Coalition (BMCC) leaders explained some ramifications effecting people identifying with approximately one-third of the American Muslim population.

    “Taking the shahada does not make Black Muslims immune to all the things that harm Black people in America,” Margari Aziza told AboutIslam.

    “We are just as  vulnerable to the disease and the devastating economic impact of the pandemic as the least conscientious among us.”

    Aziza expressed ways Muslims can help to uplift the work of the Black Muslim COVID Coalition:

    • Be sure to visit the website blackmuslimcoalition.com and sign up on the mailing list and help us connect with Black Muslim leaders across the country.
    • Help us reach our goal of 50 organizational members share our organizational. Encourage your organization to join as a member or supporters: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/BMCCorg
    • Donate and support Black Muslim efforts, especially to Black Muslim coalition.

    BMCC coalition member Oumy Thioune told AboutIslam that all Muslims can help by:

    • Using the recommended precautions and applying them to their religious practices. This means praying in small groups, buying only what is enough for themselves and their families. Maintaining good hygiene like washing hands and keeping hands away from the mouth, and staying away from others if any symptoms of COVID-19 become present.
    • Use this time to practice Zakat, or charity giving, if able to. This pandemic will affect people around the country, in and outside of our communities. If one can, try to use this time to give back.
    • Join organizations such as BMCC. The Black Muslim community, and the Muslim community in general, is so diverse, and organizations such as BMCC can only reach communities that we have access to. By joining organizations that are aiming to help marginalized communities during this pandemic, [people] bring necessary resources that help [their] communities manage and cope during these trying times.
