islamophobia and its effects on society needs to be taken seriously

hello everyone today I wanted to share my college paper on islamophobia I did in my sophomore year i tried to keep as much of my original written in tacked while editing some parts to polish it up so as to speak enjoy please enjoy and support this blog

Islamophobia and its Effects on Society needs to be Taken Seriously

     We are told Islamophobia does not exist, even though the effects of this kind of discrimination is felt in mass by Muslims and non-Muslims. Due to the biased images of Muslims in media and in the minds of religious and racist bigots.

The term Islamophobia is defined as an irrational fear of Muslims or discriminatory actions towards Islam or Muslims.

     A couple of my own personal encounters of Islamophobia is that I have been passed up on jobs since I have worn my Hijab, even though I have 8 years of work experience since I was a teenager and have been told that I have a good history and that I work hard. I have been being called a terrorist for what I choose to wear and the religion I follow.

Islamophobia has serious effects on hate crimes, health issues, communities, and stereotyping.

     The study’s ‘statistics and social and medical reports of Islamophobia are quite worrisome, especially as targets of this kind of discrimination. According to anti-Muslim hate crimes, FBI statistics show a real problem for Muslims in the US. Hate crimes against Muslims have jumped in the years after 2001 going from previously 28 to 481 anti-Muslim incidents that happened that year alone. Hate crimes against American Muslims have become the second-highest reported after anti-semitic hate crimes. (https://www.pri.org/stories/)

Hate crimes resulting from Islamophobia are defined by Careviewservices. comas threats, bullying, verbal abuse, cyberbullying, and physical assault.

     Studies have found a variety of health and physical problems that are linked to Islamophobia.

According to Samari, Goleen’s article Islamophobia and Public Health in the United States

“A 2015 review by Paradies et al.26 found that everyday experiences of discrimination are also associated with a wide variety of physical and mental health outcomes, such as coronary artery calcification, high levels of C-reactive protein, high blood pressure, giving birth to low-birth-weight infants, cognitive impairment, poor sleep, visceral fat, depression, psychological distress, anxiety” (4)

     Anxiety can be felt when a person may be made to feel belittled or stigmatized for their religion. A person can simply feel anxiety when asked a simple question about Islam. A person can feel sudden anxiety and fear on whether or not they will be attacked verbally or physically just for their religion.

     Depression is linked to Islamophobia as it stems from the feeling of alienation and the feeling of being labeled different. It can mentally drain you and make you feel there is no point in socializing or making friends. This could possibly lead to self-negative thoughts that create a feeling of self-inadequacy.

     According to Jeff Levin, L Ellen Adler, “Religious discrimination targeting Muslims is significantly associated with poor physical and mental health outcomes, including greater psychological distress; more depressive symptoms; higher levels of fear, anxiety, and posttraumatic stress disorder; more self-harm; lower self-esteem.” (1-2)

Low self-esteem can be felt when one feels constantly overwhelmed with a lack of confidence in everyday life. When others challenge your right to exist on the basis of one’s religion or being bullied or worn down emotionally from constant Islamophobic rhetoric.

     The effect of post-traumatic stress is linked to Islamophobia according to various studies and can be a serious side effect. Post-traumatic stress can happen after enduring situations of physical or verbal assault for one’s religion, accompanied by a feeling of being ashamed. The shock and fear create a feeling of anxiety for Muslims in America. Those in the targeted community are constantly worrying if others see them as a threat or if they will be verbally attacked for their faith or socially shut out by a majority in this country.

     Social withdrawal is also one of the problems that are linked with Islamophobia according to Rebecca A. Clay’s article   “the behavioral, social and psychological change and stress that people experience when they encounter a different culture,” explains Anisa N. Goforth, Ph.D., at the University of Montana. She found that first- and second-generation Muslim Arab Americans ages 11 to 18 who experienced acculturative stress were more likely to be withdrawn, sad, and depressed.  (3)

The side effect of Social withdrawal due to Islamophobia from studies, is valid and factual. It leaves a person going through it thinking that there is no point in being social with others. There is the suspicion of being attacked for one’s religion, and which gets in the way of one’s own quality of life living in fear of others. How they view you is not healthy.

     There are not just health implications from Islamophobia, there is also stereotyping that goes along with it that stems from Islamophobic fears and racism.

Stereotypes play a large role in the Islamophobic targeting and the perception of Muslims and Islam as a whole.  The effect of Islamophobic stereotypes like health problems is a real present threat.

     Rebecca A. Clay says it perfectly, her analyses of Islamophobia are good and proves the point that Islamophobia is a real problem, among the many other elements of Islamophobia.

According to Rebecca A. Clay’s article “Muslim men get stereotyped as terrorists, violent and criminal,” says Nadal. For Muslim women, the most common stereotype is that they lack control over their own lives” (3)

     The constant stereotyping of Muslims in everyday life in America only serves to hinder the ability to communicate due to false stereotypes from media coverages and movies. That is reinforcing our ideas of what Muslim women are and are not and most of the time it lacks humanity and is racist.

It could occur in any normal everyday situations for looking to much like the “enemy” Muslims in this country have been stereotyped. To stereotype means to dehumanize the targeted group that others see as the enemy. This keeps all of us in a perpetual state of misunderstanding and miscommunication.

     Another negative side of Islamophobia that is not touched on enough, is the stigmatization of an entire community of people, whether they are Muslims or not.

Media coverage and other media outlets reinforce the Islamophobic stereotype of the oppressed Muslim woman and the message that Islam is a bigoted sexist religion.

     Research has shown that the representation of Muslim women in western media is negatively racist and stereotypical after 9/11. (Poynting and Noble (2004) “found that women had experienced racism, abuse, or violence since 11 September 2001 more than men” (5)

     According to Iman Awan Irene Zempi article (The affinity between online and offline anti-Muslim hate crime: Dynamics and impacts)

Muslims are assigned in western media the role of the “enemy” so much that American Muslims do not have their own separate identity, only the face of terror that is assigned to them by the media and bigots at large.

 In this case “the enemy Muslim” makes the black and white world of the dangerous Muslim terrorist whom you need to defend yourself against. It grants others the permission to be aggressive towards Muslims just based on appearance alone.

     With everything that is reported, the much darker side of this form of hate is still not truly discussed enough. The ever-present threat of physical violence or murder that could be committed against Muslims and non-Muslims alike for being perceived as Muslim due to Islamophobia. 

     The tragic case of Khalil Jabara proves this occurrence of non-Muslims being mistaken for being Muslim and killed in 2016. Khalil Jabara was murdered on his front doorstep by a man called

Stanley Vernon Majors for being perceived as a Muslim by the shooter, when he was in fact a Lebanese Christian man. According to Michael E miller’s “Man’s ‘unusual fixation’ with Lebanese neighbors led to the killing, Tulsa police say.”  (1)

     The case of Khalid Jabara is not an isolated one. There was also the case of Balbir Singh Sodhi a Sikh American man who was shot in a gas station by Frank Silva Roque. Balbir was racially profiled and mistaken for an Arab Muslim.  Roque, like Majors, had a history of hating Muslim minorities and immigrants.

     Islamophobia is not fake. It is real and has deadly societal effects, which need to be addressed for the hate it is.

     Islamophobia only tends to deepen the divide between Muslims and non-Muslims. It needs to be challenged and confronted immediately, unfortunately tackling and fighting back against situations like these is not the easiest thing to do. Stereotypes reinforce the American Islamic community being the “other” in the eyes of America. This creates the needless and harmful Us versus Them mentality. This is not healthy for the victim that this is used against nor the aggressor that feels that they need to defend themselves constantly against the perceived enemy. This only creates situations of violence, verbal attacks, and creates more cases like Khalid Jabara and Balbir Singh Sodhi.

     American Muslims and other minorities should not have to live with fear and feel like an outsider in their own country just because of their race/religion, which most American Muslims often do. The problem of Islamophobia needs to be discussed openly and freely without the negative input of those who do not believe.

     Hopefully, one of these days, more in-depth analysis and studies of this horrific effect and cases will be put at the forefront of the public’s mind. More action and awareness can be done about this kind of discrimination.

     I have hope of change. People are already changing minds and progressing the conversation of Islamophobia and why it is deadly.

we need to address The misunderstanding and the misuse of the Arabic Islamic phrase’s and ideology

As a Muslim woman, I almost routinely hear the word jihad casually and politically thrown about then afterward Muslims are expected to explain why it’s used and who is using it.

Jihad is often misused by Islamophobe’s and non-Arabic speakers alike, the word jihad is known in Arabic as effort or striving, as in the effort jihad to be a better person or jihad struggle to be a better Muslim and these important contexts are all but forgotten in the name of hate

The Holy Quran describes three types of jihads and none of them have anything to do with what non-Muslims equate with…. terrorism.

The different often ignored types of include, include a jihad against yourself, a jihad against Satan, which also are called greater jihads,I had jihad against an open enemy, or rival or a physical struggle or ‘holy war’ in defense of isam,alsoe also known as lesser jiha.

The problem with translating a text if you are not a native- born speaker of it, you run the risk of Mistranslation, such is what happened with jihad. Commonly misunderstood, stripped of its meanings and contexts.

Another example I want to give, besides jihad, is also with the infamous Islamophobic 72 virgin’s argument to hate Islam. It is a misguided belief held by some that when reaching Jannah, it is said you would be rewarded with 72 virgins. This is also believed to be false due to a Mistranslation of the word  virgin.There are also other interpretations  as said in the hadith Jami` at-Tirmidhi 1663 Narrated by Al-Miqdam bin Ma’diykarib:the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: “There are six things with Allah for the martyr. He is forgiven with the first flow of blood (he suffers), he is shown his place in Paradise, he is protected from punishment in the grave, secured from the greatest terror, the crown of dignity is placed upon his head – and its gems are better than the world and what is in it – he is married to seventy-two wives along Al-Huril-‘Ayn of Paradise, and he may intercede for seventy of his close relatives.”

[Abu ‘Eisa said:] This Hadith is Hasan Sahih.

Al hur al ayn is also known as mermaid. Even then It doesn’t say “who die on jihad get it,” it says the shahiid, or martyr, as Narrated by Abu Huraira: Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Five are regarded as martyrs: They are those who die because of plague, abdominal disease, drowning or a falling building, etc., and the martyrs in Allah’s Cause.”

Sa’id bin Zaid bin ‘Amr bin Nufail (May Allah be pleased with him) reported, one of the ten Companions who were given the glad tidings of entering Jannah reported.

I heard the Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) saying: “He who dies while defending his property is a martyr; he who dies in defense of his own life is a martyr; and he who dies on the defense of his faith is a martyr, he who dies in defense of his family is a martyr.”

These are also considered to be shahiids, or martyrs, even they did not die in violence nor battle.

So to those who use the Islamophobic argument or misuse jihad purposefully fully knowing the damage, it does to Muslims like me why are we expected to explain this rather than you educating yourself and not doing microaggressions towards us Muslims?

“I am tired of talking about Islamic terrorism in America here’s why”.

Use the code muslimwoman for 20% percent off at https://www.etsy.com/shop/IslamicProductsStore

In the social climate of America, White supremacists and Nazis groups are an often-ignored threat in the United States, even though they tend to pose a bigger than international “Islamic” terrorism. With the likelihood of International terrorism happening in the U.S is unlikely, according to experts on this subject, the U.S. does not take homegrown White supremacist terrorists, Nazi groups, and far-right extremists seriously as if this, not a social and political threat. America still focus on unlikely occurring terrorist threats. Even when January 6th happened and the rioters there that day, most of whom WERE homegrown terrorists, were ready to take the lives of the Capital police. journalists, and American politicians. The January 6th rioters were and are still given a slap s on the wrist and a wag of the finger. They were called tourists, who became a little too rowdy, not a “real” threat or saviors of the country, who should be honored not a “real “threat like black and brown people.  

It seems right-wing Christian straight white cis people are allowed to do domestic terrorism and get away with it.  While minorities in the U.S do not seem to have this privilege, they are still silenced. They are constantly under siege by police brutality, racism, classism islamophobia, and xenophobia. Uplifting the mentality that poor, racial, and religious minorities here and abroad should be heavily punished with deadly force and violence for simply existing.

I was once a semi-secret Muslim

Hello everyone I am back from my break. This is my experience I wanted to write about, I have been working on bringing this to you enjoy.

I was once regretfully a semi-secret Muslim, I was afraid of social consequences and how my friends would react to it. I began to become envious of my coworkers friends and family, who could openly talk about their religion with happiness and without fear. I remember in the break room filled with crafts, I wanted to make a card saying Salam I am Muslim but I threw it away out of fear of how they would react. While I did wear my hijab out, I did not wear it to work nor formal important events. I was what others would call a half hijab not by complete choice though, it was out of familial pressure and self-doubt and fear that stopped me. I one day found an episode of Muslim & American on YouTube, a story that I was drawn to. The story of Aisha Rawji, an advertising professional in Manhattan, who took a stand against Islamophobia. This episode resonated so much with me. I felt that I was not alone with Aisha Rawji story out there, only after finding so many stories of ignored fears of Muslim people. I could not take it anymore and told my friends and coworkers that I was Muslim, they had thankfully accepted me I began to wear my my beloved crown fulltime but even though I am much happier, I was still having fears of social and economic reproductions and still feared some harassment for my choice. It took me a long time to tell others that I was Muslim. I felt that I was not alone with Aisha Rawji story out there. My family and close friends are still scared for me when I wear hijab and modest Muslim clothing, but I don’t blame them. They do not want me to be a target because of all of the stress and trauma, this tends to bring. I still do feel a bit like an outsider, but it makes me more determined to fight for our Muslim brother and sisters that are in hiding. We must give them our support during their jihad, struggle. If you are a secret Muslim reading this, you are not alone.

I have come to view the turban hijab style in a different light and here is why

This will be a short blog post about my feelings regarding the fashion box, that I and many others are placed in.

As a Muslim woman, I have tried to wear all manner of head covering not just the traditional hijab such as a khimar, a turban style hijab, a dupatta, a chador,  and as of late I have been considering trying out the Niqābi style of the cover. “Hmm what is that, I think I hear the faint sounds of Islamophobic heads exploding right now”.

Recently, however, I have come to view the turban style hijab in a different way after being pressured to wear it to present myself as the “cool modern hijabi girl” as somehow this style seems to be viewed by some to be more acceptable, more palatable than a hijab niqab or burka.

Initially what had started this thought was the story of Halima Aden, other Muslim models, and my own Islamophobic experiences. In a few of my jobs  I was expected to wear the turban that would sometimes make me a bit late as I had to use multiple pins and a hair ties and make sure I had all of my hair covered.

I was pressured a lot to wear it and to appear modern and cool and to wear what the new modern Muslim woman would wear, and that is sadly why have come to view the turban style as more socially acceptable and palatable than the Islamically traditional modest hijab.

My suggestions of just wearing a two-piece al Amira hijab for convince and more comfortable work attire that would not require pins nor hair ties was ignored all for the sake of looking “semi-normal and modern.” It may not be intentionally that way, it is how it comes off.

There were times where people would just call what I was wearing a niqab or a burka. When I was wearing a hijab and it is that box which has led me to just give up wanting to be the cool, stylish, modern Hijabi. No matter what we wear turban, niqab, burka, chador, we are all still Muslim woman who choose to cover our hair , we will still be viewed through Islamophobic, racist, xenophobic, and classist narrowed lenses. While I do still love turban styles that allow me to experiment with fashion, wear my quirky earrings and chokers. My own experiences and that of others has changed my mind a bit on them.
