“Political Activism for Muslims is no longer an option; it is an obligation.”
We, Muslims, must get out of our cocoons and embrace the fact that we are Americans and as such have a grave civic responsibility to shape our government to deal with the internals of our country and more importantly our role as the leader of the world.
Let us accept the fact that currently, we as a group are a political liability. Changing this will require a grassroot efforts to “Get Out and Vote” campaign. Call me a dreamer, I believe that the day is not too far when major broadcast and cable media will recognize us Muslims as a statistical body. How we voted and were indeed the tipping factor in any of the elections will be the medium of the political pundits discussions. It is only then, that we will have voices to shape our domestic and foreign policies.
Inshaa Allah, Americans will be going to poll on November 6 and we need to be showing up in droves to make our voices heard. We need to make sure that we know the precinct we are voting in and what to expect. It would be best to get a sample ballot before, and understand the manifesto of each candidate before voting.
Anyone who turns 18 on or before November 6 is eligible to vote
