Assalamu ‘Alaikum! Peace by upon you!
When we switch on our TVs or scroll through social media, I’m sure you agree that Muslims are portrayed negatively. We are potential terrorists. We are violent. We are oppressed. We are backward. It’s as if 1.6 billion of us are all the same.
Let’s take back our narrative. We don’t need them to tell our stories; we can tell our own.
ExtraordinaryMuslims.com is the first mainstream media network to collect uplifting stories from our community. You have a story to tell, and it deserves to be heard.You’ve come further than you think. Everyone is fighting such hard battles every day. Allow someone to look at you and say, “Because of you, I won’t give up.”
Share your story here.
*All posts are moderated and vetted so that the content is appropriate. We seek your kind understanding that not all stories will end up on Extraordinary Muslims.
** The long-term goal is to publish the stories in a book.
