“Muslim Man” – the Deen Squad combats stereotypes and bigotry

Jae Deen and Karter Zaher have a tough task ahead of them.  The two Canadian college friends have created a rap group, the Deen Squad, with the hopes of bringing an Islamic twist to their hip-hop music.

So far, they’ve had some success, plenty of media coverage and some nice magazine articles to their credit. And the group’s mixtapes are doing quite well.

And although they have built a solid following with their music, they know they’re in a world where the prevailing stereotype of a follower of Islam isn’t pleasant.

For the Deen Squad, they want their music to show that not all Muslims are terrorists, that Islam is not a religion of war.

And their intriguing way of expressing this –

Is with a music video.

Take a look.

For what the Deen Squad are attempting, this is a very courageous and powerful message. And it’s a new way to celebrate one of the three religious branches of Abraham/Ibrahim.

The Deen Squad’s other songs can be found on their <a href="https://soundcloud.com/deen-squad"SoundCloud page, and those tracks, like “Muslim Man,” all contain positive songs of faith and belief.

Definitely worth a listen or three.
