[Watch] Muslim Rap Duo Breaks The Internet With ‘I Am A Muslim Man’ Video
Days before the Nov. 13 terrorist attacks in Paris, two young Muslim rappers who go by the name Deen Squad released the song “Muslim Man.” The music video features the duo riding on SwegWays while rapping and holding signs that read “No, I’m not a terrorist.”
Deen Squad members Jae Deen and Karter Zaher asked their combined 1.2 million Facebook followers to post pictures with signs that read: “I’m Muslim, and I’m not a terrorist.” Since then, the related hashtag #MuslimsAreNotTerrorist has gone viral, and their music video has more than 39 million impressions and 7.8 million views on Facebook.

Now the Ottowa, Canada-based duo say their music is more important than ever before.
“Our music has become a voice with what has happened [in Paris.] It’s a voice against all these stereotypes that rise. It gives Muslim youth hope. We’re saying, ‘No, you’re not violent or terrorists, that’s not the case, that’s not who you are. You’re Muslim, you’re peaceful,’” Deen told
Some Muslims don’t agree with their use of music, citing religious laws prohibiting music for entertainment. But the duo says that their music is “morally upright” and has brought young people closer to their faith.
This is one of their hit numbers –
