The Problem: Tech Not Helping Us Express Who We Really Are

As-salaamu alaykum. Have you ever wanted an emoji to express a part of your life as a Muslim - making dua, salah, hajj, halal foods, etc…but couldn’t find it?

Let’s face it: emojis weren’t created with Muslim pop culture in mind.

The Bigger Picture: This is part of a broader cultural experience and time when we are being challenged to reclaim the Muslim narrative and showcase our true selves.

How can we express ourselves and each do our part to reclaim the Muslim narrative?

The Solution: Islamoji

The Islamoji app is the brainchild of Sakeena Rashid, Founder of Deeni Girl Media (DGM). Disheartened with the constant negative portrayals of Muslims in media, Sakeena started DGM as a way to allow Muslims to amplify their voices and share their authentic stories.  

With the success of our app, we will fund a niche publishing company that will turn more Muslim writers into authors and allow our diverse narratives to be told to a global audience.

- We've spoken with a masjid who has Syrian refugees in the community with needs that include basic necessities and new clothing. We are working with them now to send the requested items.

With your help, we will create a publishing house that tells diverse Muslim stories and educates our communities on important topics. 

We'll assemble an array of experts to bring these books, guides and personal narratives to life. ***Examples of future titles include:

  • Single Muslims: A Guide to Finding Your Ideal Spouse 
  • Marriage Matters: Building a Foundation of Love & Faith
  • Raising Happy Muslim Children
  • Autism and the Muslim Family
  • Children's books, cookbooks, biographies and more...

Sadaqah Jareya: By supporting our Islamoji app you are contributing to what can be considered unending charity. Part of our mission is to give back, and as we grow so will our charitable contributions. A percentage of all profits go to charity.

Reclaiming our Narrative: Perception is often reality. In our current climate the perception of Muslims in the media has been largely negative and political. We aim to give Muslims a platform to tell their own stories, and change that perception. To showcase the reality of our diverse stories and contributions. 

Writer Workshops/Trainings: We intend to create an online training portal for Muslim writers seeking to sharpen their skills and publish their work. 

This graph illustrates how we plan to spend the money we raise. We've contributed $5,000 of our own funds to bring this project to life. Now we need your help to make it the rest of the way.

Campaign Closed: Thank you for your donation!

Good morning, 

I wanted to send out a short note to thank you for supporting our Islamoji Launch Good campaign. I am so grateful to you for helping me on this journey, thank you!  Our campaign closed this past Friday, and while we did not meet our goal, we received a tremendous amount of support from the community. 

What next? Even tough we fell short of our funding goal, we were still able to complete the app. We will be launching soon and will email everyone who purchased their download details, so be on the lookout for that. 

Now that our campaign has closed, we will begin processing t-shirt and hoodie orders. You should expect to receive your shirt within the next 30-45 days. If you have not received you order by June 20th, please contact support at You can also direct any other questions regarding the app to that email address as well. 

Once again, thank you for your contribution :)

Thank you! from Islamoji :)


I wanted to take a moment to thank you for your support! We have been getting some exciting press lately and people seem to be responding very well to our app. However, in order to make our app a reality we need to raise funds. We are still far from our goal and are asking for your support again. 

Ways you can help:

1. Share our Launch Good campaign to your social media networks.

2. Purchase one of our Muslim-ish t-shirts or hoodies

3. Ask your friends and family to buy their app now so that we can release it as scheduled in a few weeks. 

P.S. And be sure to check out our feature in Muslim Girl.
