Should Muslims Use The “n� Word?

Should Muslims Use The “N†Word?

 

By Imam Zaid Shakir

 

I was recently involved in a forum entitled, “Should Muslims Use the ‘N’ word.†The event could have more appropriately been entitled, “Should Anyone Use the ‘N’ Word.†However, the reason for the gathering was the frequency young Muslims, of all ethnic and racial backgrounds, are employing the term. One of the individuals whose suggestion inspired the forum mentioned that he was shocked—upon returning to the university after an absence of several years—by how frequently he was hearing other Muslims on campus saying, “My nigga’,†“What’s up nigga’,†“Where you niggas going,†and similar expressions.

 

During the forum I mentioned I was of the opinion that as Muslims we should refrain from the use of the word. During the course of that event I did not get a chance to present all of the reasons for my position. I will delineate them here, God-willing. Hopefully, these words will be of benefit. If not, perhaps they will stimulate some beneficial comments.

Someone who recites the Quran should never recite any unsuitable words with the same tongue.

And one should say good or keep silent since silence is virtue. :no:
