We created this mask as a tongue in cheek message to highlight the double standards that we see Muslim women subjected to, especially those who choose to wear the niqab. We have been vilified, politicised and ostracised for covering ourselves and our faces, yet the face mask currently worn to protect us from the virus seems perfectly acceptable.
As Muslim women, we are tired of the labels, assumptions and critiques placed on us. We hope that this mask generates healthy discussion where the voice and opinions of Muslims are centred and amplified.
Our reusable masks are ethically made in Australia and 15% of the profits will go to relief efforts in Yemen through Islamic Relief. We deliver worldwide!
We want to create a movement around this so if you wear the mask or use the filter, snap a photo and tag @emaan.official on Instagram so we can share it on our platform!
