The Crimean Turks mosque has a space that can fit around 100 person on the upper level of the mosque, they hosts an Iftar during Ramadan which is the Arabic word for “having breakfast” as the first meal Muslims can eat after sunsets throughout the holy month. They rent out this space along the year, it could be booked for weddings, graduation parties or any other personal occasion. This generates an unique juxtaposition between the disco ball and the Arabic calligraphy on the back wall that has “There is no god but Allah, prophet Mohammed is messenger sent by Allah” which is the major fundamental belief all Muslims shares.

Photo and text by @rminor84 // My PePere (that's French for grandfather ) was incredibly smart. He was a steel factory worker, a sailor in the US Navy, a Christmas tree farmer, and an amazing gardener. He was knowledgeable about so many things and often caught me off guard when we’d sit and speak. . When I first shared my decision to convert to Islam with him, I could tell he was uncomfortable. The next thing he said to me was "Muhammad was smart to marry Khadija. She had a lot of money back then." I still to this day have no idea how he knew about Khadija RA. I was too shocked to ask. Not many people who follow a religion other than Islam would a ) know the name of Prophet Muhammad's wife and b ) know that she was indeed wealthy, as a result of being a smart and successful businesswoman. And here was my grandfather, a lifelong Catholic in his late 80s casually mentioning their names. . I honestly don't remember how the rest of our conversation went. Out of my three living grandparents to watch and experience my conversion, it was most uncomfortable for my PePere but with time he saw I was still me. The only real change in our relationship was the occasional "Oh, here's my Arab granddaughter" comment to which I would reply, "Nope. I'm still American, PePere". . It’s Friday. One of the best days to send our blessings upon the Prophet, salAllahu alayhi wasalam. “Among the best of your days is Friday; so supplicate Allah more often for me in it, for your supplications will be displayed to me.” // • • • -Check out our friends @everydaybayarea @everydayhornofafrica @everydayrefugees @everydaymumbai @everydayaustralia @everydayafrica @everydayeverywhere @everydaymotorcity @everydayblackamerica @everydaybronx @everydayamsterdam @everyday dr @everydaykandahar @everydayafg @everydaymigration @everydaybolivia @everydayruralamerica @everydaybrasil @everydaygolshahr @everydaylafrontera @everyday oaxaca @everydaybahrain @everydayguatemala @everydayincarceration @everydaypakistan @everyday california and the rest of the Everyday communities!

Photo and text by @ranaabdelhamid_ // spent the morning wearing my @amnestyusa executive board hat and met with Senator Feinstein’s office to lobby for human rights policy. focused on three main issues that you can push on too. The first demand is no increase in the funding going to border control, remembering the inhuman treatment facing asylum seekers and migrants. just weeks ago, mothers and children were tear gassed using our tax dollars. more funding means more human rights violations. the second ask was for Senator Feinstein to support a bill to stop funding to Saudi lead violence in Yemen. In the past couple of months, five major humanitarian organizations have stated that if the violence does not stop, 14 million Yemenis will be at risk of starvation. Already thousands of Yemeni citizens have been indiscriminately killed because of the violence. And last, we demanded a US backed UN investigation to the murder of Jamal Kashoggi, a journalist and US resident. dismissing his murder will set a dangerous precedent and continue to be a threat against freedom of speech and human rights. It’s sooo important our representatives hear from us, especially this month. Please call and ask for support on these things too!

Photo and text by guest contributor journalist @noreensnasir , following the terrorist attack on Muslims in Christchurch, NZ last Friday. // I watched part of the shooter's video last night. A colleague covering the news in real time had posted it to a work Slack channel, with a warning that it was extremely graphic. I'm no stranger to graphic videos, I thought. I opened it while laying in bed and took in the beginning of a horrific scene before I numbly closed out, set my phone down, rolled over and fell asleep. In the morning, the managers warned us against watching the clip - saying it wasn’t necessary for us to do our jobs and that watching videos of traumatic events can sometimes mirror the feelings of having actually lived through them. Too late, I guess. I showed up to work in a daze, feeling nauseous and avoiding eye contact. I’ve gotten pretty good at averting my gaze on days like today. When the call came to gather American Muslim reaction to the massacre, I volunteered and made my way to MCC. I was planning to go to Friday prayers, anyway. I stood on the side of the men’s section of the prayer hall, feeling a little awkward with my tripod and camera as the khateeb bellowed that we may be scared, but we cannot stop coming to the mosque. Men continued to stream in, praying their sunnahs in rounds as the khateeb continued his sermon. I would have rather pressed my forehead to the red carpet in prayer. Instead, I watched through a lens as my brothers raised their hands in supplication for the 49 victims gunned down as they had gathered to do exactly the same halfway around the world, just hours earlier. Ameen, I whispered under my breath, then panned out wide. I’m not really sure what to make of today. I sobbed quietly as I walked home, but stopped abruptly when I sensed someone approaching. I don’t know who I’m trying to convince that I’m okay. I think about the terror of white supremacy a lot. On days like today, it feels suffocating. //

Photo and words by @tanji la // I did it for the man who dropped out of college because he had to support his retired parents and ten siblings. I did it for the woman who got married at age 19 and was not taught to aim higher. I did it for the man I didn’t see much growing up because he was gone for work before I woke up and came home after I had already fallen asleep. I did it for the woman who scrambled through the pages of a Bangla-English dictionary to help me with my hw. I did it first or the man who encouraged me to go out of state because it will teach me to become independent. I did it for the woman who defended my ambitions against aunties who believed that women shouldn’t aim too high. I did it for the man and woman who never doubted me and gave me everything I ever needed to succeed. I did it for for Abbu & Ammu. // • • • -Check out our friends @everydaybayarea @everydayhornofafrica @everydayrefugees @everydaymumbai @everydayaustralia @everydayafrica @everydayeverywhere @everydaymotorcity @everydayblackamerica @everydaybronx @everydayamsterdam @everyday dr @everydaykandahar @everydayafg @everydaymigration @everydaybolivia @everydayruralamerica @everydaybrasil @everydaynepal @everyday korea @everydaygolshahr @everydaycambodia @everydayjordan_ @everydaylafrontera @everyday oaxaca @everydaybahrain @everydayethiopia @everydayguatemala @everydayincarceration @everydaypakistan @everydayecuador @everydayegypt @everydaymiddleeast and the rest of the Everyday communities!
