Podium’s upcoming edition will be centred around exploring the racism and prejudice within the Muslim community. From colonial mindsets to stereotypes, there is no topic we are shying away from. A healthy conversation is long overdue and the time has come to amplify the voices and experiences of the victims amongst us. In order for us to see change, we must put ourselves at the forefront of the fight for justice and arm ourselves with knowledge rather than ignorance.

As Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ) said, “Help your brother, whether he is an oppressor or he is an oppressed one. People asked, “O Allah’s Messenger (ﷺ)! It is all right to help him if he is oppressed, but how should we help him if he is an oppressor?” The Prophet (ﷺ) said, “By preventing him from oppressing others.”

We want to hear all your experiences, encounters and affairs with these issues, in any form you see fit; whether it be an artwork, a rant, a comic, a poem, an essay.
🌟 Let your inspiration and knowledge be the guide 🌟
Submissions open until 20th of August!
