In these apocalyptic islamophobic times, laughing in the face of the resistance can sometimes be the best medicine. How about a new set of appropriately satirical, darkly flirty #MuslimVDay Cards to heal that darkness in your heart? This sixth set of #MuslimVDay cards are perfect for this Valentines Day 2018 to be mailed as postcards to lovers and crushes, Muslim or non-Muslim alike.

Over the years, #MuslimVDay cards have been covered by CNN, NPR, NBC News, Buzzfeed, The Aerogram, Angry Asian Man, The Sporkful, Brown Girl Magazine, Colorlines and #MuslimVDay card workshops have been hosted at the Smithsonian APA Lit Fest and Shangri-La Center for Islamic Arts and Culture.

The 2018 set of cards include:
"So Fly List"
"Wanna Roleplay TSA?"
"There's No Resisting My Love For You"
"I'd Never Muslim Ban You From My Heart"
"Call Your Representative, Then... Call Me"
"Cupid Dropped an Airstrike on My Heart"

The sixth set in the series, these six cards are printed on 4.25" x 6" postcard size cardstock to ensure proper mailing. Each card is vibrantly full colored, and is numbered, signed & dated.

Started in 2011 as a personal counterculture art project by Taz Ahmed, the six #MuslimVDay card images created yearly have taken the internet like drones dropping bombs. Muslims love. Muslims laugh. Muslim have snark. If these cards make you laugh, but uncomfortably, they have done their job.

And this is what Colorlines magazine had to say: http://colorlines.com/archives/2013/02/ive_got_a_ji-hard_on_for_you_and_other_delightfully_uncomfortable_muslim_valentines.html

"MuslimVDayCard is Ahmed’s lighthearted answer to Islamophobia, and the confining stereotypes that trail her as a Muslim woman. “I was thinking about Islamophobia and language around Muslims and love,” she said.

“I was tired of Muslims being put into a box — and tired of being in the box of a non-sexual Muslim woman,” Ahmed said. “So this was my way of reappropriating Islamophobia.” The series is political humor at its best. Cheeky, sharp, with clever puns and lightness of spirit that’s grounded by the reality of Muslim life in this post-9/11 era. Ahmed has found that Muslims love the series and laugh openly at it, whereas many non-Muslims “feel bad about laughing about the jokes.”"

This particular series (#6) is from the 2018 series with a limited print of 250 cards per image. You will get a full series of six cards with each purchase.
