Praying at The Inner Circle mosque in Cape Town. It’s a small masjid but the community has a compassionate heart, lead by Imam Muhsin Hendricks and others who are working towards creating Islamic spaces for queer and other Muslims who have been marginalized from their communities. What makes this space sacred is that it aims to be as open as the mercy of Allah is wide. There is no side entrance for anyone.

Some lesbian South African beats for your day…

"Heart"

Toya Delazy

Heart, you gonna be strong and bold
I can feel it from the tip of my toe
Jump up and rise high
Like a free bird taking
to the sky!

Cause you gonna have a lovely day
may the good things come your way
I wish you all the best,
the best for this life,
the best for the next

I wanna be a part
of that beauty
of making you happy!

Heart Rock!
Live loud turn it up
Let it shine
what you got

An inspirational imam and human being…

A Muslim lesbian of South Asian heritage writes about her experiences of Islamophobia and racism from LGBTQ communities.

“It was at a national conference where a gay person said to me “I thought you might have an issue with me as a gay person, you know many Muslims usually do”. Without losing my temper, I looked at myself. Did my brown skin and colorful hijab scream homophobe!!?”

A great article written in response to the bad journalism recently done by the Independent. In my opinion, Saudi Arabia certainly deserves criticism for things like the recent urban development around the Kaabah in Mecca. The believability of the Independent article is proof of how bitter many of us Muslims are towards the Saudi gov.; however, we must not allow that bitterness to prevent us from placing criticism and choice words where they speak to truth rather than falsehood.
