The WearWhite movement is a social media initiative inviting Muslims to return to our natural disposition (fitrah) and the Sunnah (way) of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
The movement's genesis was from our observations of the growing normalization of LGBT in Singapore. However, we recognize the conduct and it's support among Muslims is due to the lack of understanding and connection with Islam and our fitrah. We thus came together initially with the expressed purpose of reminding Muslims not to participate in the LGBT event on 28th June.
The movement encourages a return to the values as guided by Islam. These values include prioritizing the family and marriage, responsibility and justice and fair dealings.
The initial campaign emphasizes a return to natural relationships as found in Islam. Given the clarity in Islam on the nature and conduct of family relationships, marriage between a man and a woman forms the basis of the family.
We hope to continue promoting family focused campaigns throughout the year. These campaigns will hopefully strengthen the family unit and result in healthy relationships. We also call for a return to fitrah through reconnecting the Muslims especially the youth, back to Islam and clarifying key concepts such as freedom and rights in Islam.
WearWhite supporters have indicated that some of the other family oriented campaigns they would like to promote in the near future include developing respect and recognizing responsibilities among family members as guided by the Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
It is our hope that this campaign helps bring Muslims back to our fitrah and reconnect us with the Sunnah of the Prophet.
Let us return to family. Let us return to fitrah.
WearWhite is an informal grassroots movement that has come together to help Muslims return to their natural disposition.
As a social media initiative, it has no membership or institutionalised committee. WearWhite supporters discuss initiatives, gain advice and suggestions and develop family oriented plans. These initiatives are centred around developing family relationships as guided by the Sunnah of Prophet Muhammad (Peace Be Upon Him).
Individuals provide support based on their expertise and capabilities.
Given the holistic nature of Islam and it's beautiful exhortation to goodness, we do not limit the invitation to or against any specific group. Our invitation is for the return to fitrah in its entirety and for all humanity.
WearWhite is launching our initiative with a call for Muslims to attend the first Terawih prayer on 28th June 2014 in white.

Cleanse our soul with the taubah prayer. Do it with honesty and regrets to Allah swt.
On the first of Ramadan, during the tarawih prayer wear any white garment and share your jamaah's photo with the hash tag #wearwhite.
