“Driving is haram for women!” Muslims react to funny tweets

Islam is one of the largest major religions in the world, with close to 2 billion followers.

However, despite its popularity, there remain so many common misconceptions about Muslims and the religious teachings of Islam.

In this Musconceptions series, a diverse range of young Muslims from different backgrounds come together to read funny tweets and help to dispel myths and misogyny.

The internet is full of strange questions, stereotypes and comments about Muslims. Here are some you might have come across before.

The cast reacting to these, at times, often wide-of-the-mark and downright hilarious tweets, are the first Muslim hijab-wearing model Mariah Idrissi, BBC Asian Network presenter Mistah Islah, Raiyyān – also known as TikTok and Instagram sensation Scott Lum, poet Rakaya  Fetuga, presenter and content creator Deana Hassanein, and actor Rui Shang.
