Every time you look at the news, you can’t help but be hit by at least one Islamophobic story. Well, at least that is the way I felt for a long time.
This is from Muhammad Wajid Akhter’s article “4 Ways that London 2012 Made Muslims Feel Welcome” at Muslim Matters. I want to hear people when they feel that their community has been wrongly spoken of. And I want to celebrate with them when they feel respected by others.
These are the 4 ways he felt welcomed.
4. Visibly Muslim Volunteers
3. Olympic village canteen open all night for fasting athletes
2. Allowing dawah [inviting others to Islam] ]in/ around the Olympic park
1. Celebrating Muslim Olympians
