Getting involved in black lives matter movements

Home / Q&A / Getting involved in black lives matter movements


I want to know is it permissible for Muslims to be involved in these “black lives matter” movements to any extent or any other movements that deal with racial divisions, where the emphasis is not Islam rather the “empowerment” of the race. According to some they are ” speaking out” about injustices that racial group faces. However, while speaking out they simultaneously become heavily engaged with the kuffar in these movements. Is it permissible and is it “speaking out” when this speaking out is clearly creating a division between races in the brotherhood for example (African American Muslims, black Muslims).

Zaynab El-Kateb:

These movements are not from Islam, the only way to fight racism is to teach Islam religion.
