The power of the Taking Heart Iftar comes from the connections that people forge that night. In a time where Islamophobia is continuously on the rise, Taking Heart Iftar works to fight back by putting a face to the Muslim community. The goal is to change the connotation people have of Islam. Instead of thinking about terrorism in faraway countries, people will think of the night they had a conversation about shared prophets or hilarious work stories with their Muslim neighbors. Most attacks against Muslims arise from uneducated notions of Islam and Muslims. In other words, Taking Heart works to humanize the Muslim Community.
