MPAC & ISNA : Biden 'Is Someone We Can Relate To' - 'We Pray That Allah Guide Them'

Muslims Ecstatic Over Prospect Of Pro Islamist Biden/Harris Administration
November 11, 2020

MPAC Statement:

MPAC congratulates President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris on their historic win! After an absolutely chaotic past four years, the majority of voters chose honesty and decency, and a multicultural, multi-ethnic coalition elected the first African-American, Indian-American, female Vice President, who is also the child of immigrants, in our nation's history. With African-American and immigrant communities comprising the majority of American Muslims, it is a significant milestone to have someone we can relate to in such a high position. With all of the work MPAC does toward inclusion at every level of government, media, and civil society, this is a huge step forward and cause for celebration.

We are hopeful about the prospects of engagement with the Biden-Harris administration. Joe Biden's pledge to repeal the Muslim Ban on Day One of his term may reflect an administration committed to working with us and not against us. We look forward to working in collaboration with other Muslim civic organizations to ensure that the rights of American Muslims are restored and upheld. Over the course of the next four years we are all committed to ending systemic racism, pushing for police reform, honoring our nation's commitment to religious freedom, and comprehensively reforming our nation's immigration policy. We still have a lot of work to do and MPAC is committed to that work, but this historic election gives us much to be hopeful for.


Islamic Society of North America

November 10, 2020

The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA), a 57-year-old national organization, congratulates President Elect Joe Biden and Vice President Elect Kamala Harris. We pray that may Allah (SWT) almighty God, help, guide, and strengthen them to serve our country and be a beacon of hope for the world.

We pray for our nation to come together and unite all its citizens, wherein justice and opportunity exist for all. May our newly elected leaders act with resolve and compassion for the sick, the weak, the marginalized, and for everyone in the society.

ISNA also congratulates around 60 Muslim brothers and sisters, who were elected to office at the national, state, and local levels in these elections.

ISNA has always promoted political and voter engagement. In its meeting in 1986, ISNA board adopted a resolution for educating and encouraging the community on political engagement and for exercising their right to vote.

We pray to Almighty God to bring our country together for the common good.


ISNA is a national organization serving the Muslim community for the last 57 years. Our vision is to be an exemplary and unifying Islamic organization in North America that contributes to the betterment of the Muslim community and society at large.
