#MyJihad Social Media Campaign

Project Sakinah is proud to be partnering during the month of March with MyJihad in order to have people participate in a campaign against domestic violence, child abuse, and for healthy marriages and effective parenting.

It's easy to take part.

  1. Simply print out one of the posters below and then take a selfie of yourself or a group of friends with it (We highly recommend printing out a few and taking them to the masjid).
  2. Tweet the picture using the hashtags #MyJihad and #ProjectSakinah. If you're shy or have an old-school camera, just tweet us a picture of your sign or use no picture at all, just use the hashtags.
  3. "Like" the MyJihad and ProjectSakinah Facebook pages and post your picture there (or add a comment about your Jihad if you don't want to share a picture).

It's amazingly effective, but simple, so please join us and declare your jihad to reclaim our Prophet's example for peaceful families.

About MyJihad:
MyJihad is a public education campaign that seeks to share the proper meaning of Jihad as believed and practiced by the majority of Muslims. Jihad means "struggling in the way of God". The way of God, being goodness, justice, passion, compassion, etc. It is putting up the good fight against whatever odds or barriers you face in your life. It is a central tenet of the Islamic creed that has unfortunately been widely misrepresented due to a) first and foremost, the actions of Muslim extremists, b) attempts at public indoctrination by Islamophobes who claim that the extremists are right and the rest of us are wrong, and c) a selective media that understandably focuses on the sensational. This campaign is about reclaiming our faith and its concepts from extremists, both Muslim and anti-Muslim. It's about our voice, our lives, our reality. MyJihad includes displaying public ads on buses and trains, the use of #MyJihad hashtag on twitter, outreach on Facebook and Youtube, as well as speaking events and other initiatives. This is more than an ad campaign or a social media buzz. This is a movement of self-expression. Join us.

Let's spread #ProjectSakinah and #MyJihad everywhere inshaAllah!
