Spread the Love: Practical Ways to Embrace our Midlands Muslim Community

students for palestine immigration

Time and time again South Carolinians have demonstrated love and unity when it is needed most. In that spirit, we reached out to members of our local Muslim community to ask for suggestions of ways that others may connect and show support.

 

If you are interested in supporting organizations doing great work for the Muslim community, the following organizations provide useful information and a variety of ways to get involved:

If you are interested in being more actively involved:

  • The Muslim Student Association at USC hosts a number of events. Keep an eye out for their Discover Islam Week. Follow them on Facebook.
  • If you want to learn more about discrimination of many forms, particularly Islamophobia, the Unitarian Universalist Church is hosting a free two hour workshop open to the public this Sunday from 2pm-4pm. More on that here.
  • If you want to learn more about the Muslim culture, there are a number of books and resources that share the principles of Islam across different cultures.

 

The leaders emphasized how appreciated the outpouring of support is. They shared that the rallies show unity and solidarity with their fellow Americans. Other ways to show love include greeting members outside the mosque as they arrive for Friday service (usually around 1-1:30) or leaving notes of love at the door of the mosque.
