Muslim Americans’ ‘Seismic Change’

By Elizabeth Dias

When Sylvia Chan-Malik reflects on the aftermath of Sept. 11, she has two
starkly different personal memories from the trauma.

She recalls the strangers yelling epithets at her and her young daughters
on their way to Eid prayers. But she also thinks of her daughters, now
teenagers, seeing Hasan Minhaj, the Muslim comedian, at a sold-out theater
and reading novels about Muslim girls like themselves.

“It has caused incredible violence and pain and trauma, but it has also
created incredible possibility and hope and new forms of community,” Dr.
Chan-Malik, associate professor of American studies at Rutgers University,
said of Sept. 11. “It absolutely changed everything.”

For 20 years the tragedy of that day has transformed American Muslim life,
in deep and conflicting ways. The terrorist attacks unleashed a deluge of
anti-Muslim hate and misinformation that persists today. In 2016, Americans
elected a president with an anti-Muslim platform, and a surge in violence

against American Muslims led a rise in hate crimes against all groups.

Yet the struggle birthed a generation determined to define their place in
American life on their own terms, in ways that were unfathomable 20 years
ago. Last year Ramy Youssef won a Golden Globe Award for his portrayal of a
young New Jersey man

struggling with his identity. Americans elected Muslims to Congress for the
first time, starting with Keith Ellison and André Carson, African American
converts, and then Rashida Tlaib, the daughter of Palestinian immigrants,
and Ilhan Omar, a refugee from Somalia who successfully challenged the
181-year rule banning headwear in the House chamber.

Islam has been part of the American story since enslaved African Muslims
first arrived, but the past 20 years have forced a coming of age with
sweeping public awareness, said Zeenat Rahman, executive director of the
Institute of Politics at the University of Chicago.

“I’m not sure we’d have gotten here as quickly had it not been for the
relentless microscope,” she said. “This is not just about one community.
This is about what this one community teaches us about who we are as
Americans.”

country’s most diverse, about doubled

of Muslim adults in America are immigrants or children of immigrants.

Twenty years ago, African American Muslims were among the most visible and
had an established public voice, especially through the civil rights
movement. The fallout from the Sept. 11 attacks opened their relationship
with immigrant communities who shared their religion as they helped them
navigate the tumultuous landscape, said Plemon El-Amin, imam emeritus of
the Atlanta Masjid of Al-Islam, a predominantly African American mosque
that started in the 1970s.

With the resulting wars in Afghanistan and Iraq and the registries and
surveillance of people from Muslim countries, “the greatest hurt of all of
this has been on the Muslim world,” he said.

To Be Young, American And Muslim After 9/11

This is an excerpt from a story in The New York Times Opinion

section.

What does it mean to be Muslim and American? Before Sept. 11, 2001, for
children growing up in Muslim homes, it was just another part of our
identities. I was a girl scout, Pakistani, my favorite color was green, and
I happened to go to the mosque every Eid with my family. But after Sept.
11, it was the only thing anyone saw. The first time I was stopped by
airport security, I was 11 years old.

My experience is far from unique. Millennial Muslims came of age in the
shadow of an event that has forever cast our identity into question. Being
judged by our faith alone was a gantlet we all had to face. And it wasn’t
one that grew easier with time, as some in our communities hoped it would.
As the war on terror metastasized, Islam became synonymous with terrorism
for much of America.

And the questioning of our faith didn’t fade, even as the anger and
confusion of Sept. 11 did. Hate crimes against Muslim Americans

but a persistent hum in the years before and since.

Twenty years after Sept. 11, millennial Muslims in America — my generation
— can finally take stock of the past two decades. For the children who were
just beginning to piece together their personalities as the fall of 2001
rolled around, our experiences of the days immediately following Sept. 11 —
the playground taunts, the piercing fear, the hushed conversations at home
— are nearly uniform. But the way it has shaped our adult lives is not. For
some, it set us directly on our life paths, whether as activists or
politicians or members of the armed forces. For others, the ripple effects
were subtler, felt decades after the fact. But after I spoke to dozens of
millennial Muslims in America, one thing became clear: while everyone
reacted differently, there was always a reaction.
