Ummah : The Effects of Community Responsibility on Muslim Political Behavior in the United States

February 25, 2021 - 6:00 pm to 7:30 pm
Dr. Nura Sediqe

Drawing on an originally fielded survey of 1,000 Muslims in the United States, Dr. Nura Sediqe assess what influence the racial climate has on Muslims commitment to community (ummah). Sediqe develop a theory for 'ummah consciousness' to understand how commitment to the ummah may influence political behavior. Sediqe finds that Muslims who hold a higher sense of ummah consciousness are more likely to participate in communal-specific types of political participation. The findings highlight how Muslims hold on to a sense of community in response to being racialized.
