Deen Squad is a hip-hop dua made up of Jae Deen and Karter Zaher who combine their love and passion for hip-hop with their love for Islam. By connecting to Muslim youth, Deen Squad hopes to inspire, connect, and spread appreciation for Islam. One of the duo, Jae Deen, converted to Islam at the young age of 15 because of the concept of tawheed – the oneness of God. Part of his journey has included putting in more than 300 hours over six-months of self-study of Arabic and the Quran. He was eventually able to write out the entire Quran in Arabic as well as translate every single word into English. Jae Deen wishes the Muslim community would put more emphasis in reading and understanding the Holy Quran so that there would be no racism or misogyny. “The Quran truly does provide solutions to every single problem the world faces today.”
