The Small, Growing World of Muslim MRAs

Abu Muawiyah, a 30-something man living in the U.K. wants to help other millennial Muslim men find a wife. His problem? That “feminism has singlehandedly made men feel weak and helpless and shirk away from their responsibilities to become husbands and fathers.” His solution? To give frequent “marriage workshops” on Facebook to address modern dating issues he believes mosques are ill-equipped to handle. “Most imams know nothing about relationships,” he complains, and have mainly “given advice for outdated arranged marriages.” Evidently, the spirit of the MRA is no longer the exclusive purview of Reddit.
