Muslim Fraternity at University of Texas, Dallas rally together to protest domestic violence.

It was an honor for Alif Laam Meem, the only active Muslim fraternity in the United States, to represent the Muslim community at Mayor Rawlings Rally Against Domestic Violence in Downtown Dallas. We at Alif Laam Meem say that the issue of domestic violence is one that cannot be ignored. It has repercussions that not only affect the victim, but the family as a whole. And broken families lead to broken communities, and broken communities lead to a broken society.

We as Muslims must stand up and take a stronger stance against domestic violence. We must also realize that violence is not just physical, it can be verbal, psychological or even Financial. I applaud Mayor Rawlings for creating awareness to a very important societal issue and Insha’Allah men, both Muslims and non-Muslims, will continue to unite and help solve this problem.  

For me personally, the event opened my eyes to the prevalence of this heinous act. Research has indicated that 1 in 3 women over the course of their lifetime will be subjected to a form of domestic abuse. This is completely unacceptable and as long as domestic violence remains a problem, Alif Laam Meem and myself will be out there fighting for a woman’s right to live peacefully in her own home. You can call a guy who abuses women many things, but you cannot call him a man.
