Some corners of the internet are attacking @RepEBJ for inviting her constituent, the beloved TX Imam @omarsuleiman504 to give a prayer to Congress yesterday. You might not know who he is, so I'll tell you.
He's known in the Muslim community for being a founder of @MUHSENORG which helps and trains mosques to serve Muslims with special needs and of @yaqeeninstitute which publishes papers on issues facing US Muslims.
Muslims also know him as an ally to Muslim women, bc Sh. omar was one of the first US Muslim religious leaders to take a private and public stand against another TX preacher accused of sexually predatory behavior two years ago.
Sh. Omar came to the national consciousness after the 2016 election bc of his strong stance supporting migrants - especially children - detained at the border nbcnews.com/storyline/immi…
Sh. Omar not only supports, but tries to protect those who are being attacked by the current administrations, like the #dreamers dallasnews.com/news/immigrati…
Sh. Omar's moral leadership kept separated families and protesters in Dallas strong during the first phase of the implementation of Trump's Muslim travel ban dallasnews.com/life/faith/201…
Sh. Omar Suleiman 'prays with his feet,' joining #BlackLivesMatter protests, including in 2016 Dallas in which a sniper attacked police. His moral leadership was recognized by the city & he continues to preach against racism dmagazine.com/frontburner/20…
His prominent opposition to Trump's #MuslimBan hasn't stopped Sh. Omar's compassion for TSA workers - during the #TrumpShutdown, he coordinated efforts to feed them and donate gift cards & non-perishables wfaa.com/article/news/l…
Sh. Omar has long been a stong #interfaith ally () and publicly supports Jewish communities under attack, thanks to a rise in anti-Semitic attacks post-Trump election wfaa.com/article/news/m…
Sh. Omar's moral and ethical leadership was why he was invited to speak last year at the President Carter Center on religion and human rights cartercenter.org/news/upcoming_…
Sh. Omar is loved and respected by the Muslim community he serves bc of his commitment to building an inclusive society; challenging racism, ableism, misogyny & speaking out for justice in the US and abroad. Learn about him before believing internet haters dmagazine.com/publications/d…
