All of the beautiful things that were said about Black Muslimah Activists

And now that you have seen just a small outpouring of twitter love for this article, take a few moments and read it for yourself.

Even from the earliest teachings of Islam, women have taken the reigns. Khadijah, Fatima, Maryam and Asiyah, wife of Pharaoh, were all great leaders and teachers and are known as the four great women of the Quran. There is a significant legacy of African-American non-Muslim women, from Harriet Tubman to Michelle Obama as well that have been magnificent leaders and teachers. So ask yourself, why, in the 21st Century, can’t we mesh the two or even three trifectas? What makes being so inclusive invisible?

After you read it, please keep the twitter love going...and tweet it...:)
