Muslimmatters.org began in 2007 as a collaboration between various Bloggers and Shuyukh in order to bring attention to issues faced by Muslims, especially in the West. We have focused on issues of Religion, Society, Ethics, Sex Education, Politics, Civil Rights, Family, as well as the random issues that pop up from now and then, all with some ranting and humor mixed in.
We challenge ourselves and our readers to engage in discourses that touch our lives as citizens of the West, while maintaining our individual Islamic identities: Ultimately to cooperate, but not to compromise.

The Missing Muslims
Over 20% of Americans are reported to be living with some sort of disability, but nowhere near 20% of masjids, schools, or social circles reflect their inclusion. Disability may not be a part of every Muslim’s life, but it is part of every Muslim’s test in how we respond to the needs of others. This session is dedicated to answering how we can do right by our differently abled brethren. Venue: Room 321-323 Time: 03/31/2018 11:45 AM - 1:15 PM Zeba Khan AbdulMalik Clare Munir Vohra Moderated by: Hena Zuberi

Bilal : #PowerofOne Blog Carnival
MuslimMatters and Muslim Anti-Racism Collaborative (MuslimARC) are partnering this Black History Month to explore the Legacy of Bilal [ranhu] with the #PowerfOne blog carnival from February 1st- 9th. Muslimmatters, a web magazine, started out as a blog and to commemorate 10 years of existence, we have decided to revisit our roots. During the first week of Febuary, MuslimMatters will publish a post with links to each of the participants' entries, giving readers easy access to a variety of posts on this topic. We will then publish the best of the carnival on Muslimmatters. We encourage writers to send in post and articles on critiques and reviews of the movie, depictions of Bilal [ranhu] in film and other media, historical Bilal [ranhu], etc. We encourage people to go deep and then go deeper. Each participating blogger should send MM the link to their specific carnival post entry. Writers can submit previously published content that they own the rights to and support by sharing content using the hashtags #Bilal #PowerOfOne or #PowerOfOneness. Please advertise the carnival on your blog. If you do not have your own blog but would like to send in a guest submission, please use this link and clearly mark the entry BILAL.
