American Muslims have made history in this year’s elections, with a record number of people contesting and a record number winning seats for first time.


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)

As results start to trickle in, a Huff Post report said that 5 Democrat’s candidates have made history by becoming the first Muslim state legislative lawmakers in Wisconsin, Florida and Delaware.

The five winners are:

  • Mauree Turner: First Muslim lawmaker elected to the House of Representatives, Oklahoma
  • Iman Jodeh: First Muslim lawmaker in the history of Colorado.
  • Madinah Wilson-Anton: Member of the House of Representatives, Delaware and the first Muslim elected to the legislature
  • Samba Baldeh: First Muslim member, and Black man, to represent the House of Representatives, Wisconsin
  • Christopher Benjamin: Member of the House of Representatives, Florida, and the first elected to any state office in the Sunshine State.
