Why Muslims Should Vote For Barack Obama

Why Muslims Should Vote for Barack Obama

  1. His message of equality echoes Prophet Muhammad (S)’s message of equality.

Senator Barack Obama: “There is not a black America, and white America, and Latino America, and Asian America, there’s the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA” – 2004 Democratic Convention Speech

Prophet Muhammad: “All mankind is from Adam and Eve, an Arab has no superiority over a non-Arab nor a non-Arab has any superiority over an Arab; also a white has no superiority over a black nor a black has any superiority over white except by piety and good action…”

2. The one and only Muslim member of Congress, Congressman Keith Ellison, supports him.

Muslim Congressman Keith Ellison endorsed the 2008 presidential campaign of Sen. Obama saying “”He speaks with a unifying spirit.” He said he supports “Obama’s message of an open and fair economy, a balanced prosperity and clear opposition to the war in Iraq.”

3. He understands the needs of immigrants.

Obama believes we must fix the dysfunctional immigration bureaucracy and increase the number of legal immigrants to keep families together and meet the demand for jobs that employers cannot fill. – (www.barackobama.com/issues/immigration/)

4. He is dedicated to women’s rights.

Barack Obama has emphasized the need to ensure that every working woman receives equal pay for equal work. As a father of two daughters, Sen. Obama congratulated Senator Hillary Clinton on a groundbreaking campaign, despite their political differences.

5. Muslims should appreciate his courageous stance on Iraq.

From the very beginning, Senator Obama opposed the war in Iraq. He is committed to ending the American occupation of Iraq. He wants to bring the troops home immediately.

Everyone needs to make up their own mind about whom they should vote for and even whether they should vote at all. I believe that voting for Senator Barack Obama represents a rare opportunity to make a positive difference in America.
