I am a Muslim and my religion urges me to think, think and then think. That’s why many versus in the Quran and many sayings by the prophet, Peace be upon him, are open for interpretation and many issues are left for people to figure out on their own.
I am a Muslim and I am aware that sometime Quranic verses are misinterpreted, and fake sayings are attributed to the Prophet, hence the many misunderstandings of Islam. I’m also aware that many Muslims do not represent Islam because they do not practice Islam the way it should be practiced.
I’m a Muslim and it bothers me when I go to a non-Muslim country and people look at me not as a human being with a certain attire choice but like a Hijab walking around with something fishy inside it. On the other hand, it restores my faith in humanity when people look at me with respect and even smile as if to say: “You’re different, and it’s cool, and I want to know more about what makes you different”
I am a Muslim and I don’t look down on people, and I don’t think that I’m better than others.
I’m a Muslim and when I say I do what I do for God that means that I do it for the advancement of the human race, to make the world a better place or to be a better person in the eye of God.
I’m a Muslim and when I say I believe in Allah that’s not a name like Zeus or Ra’, It’s an Arabic word that means the one and only God. The God worshipped by Moses, Jesus and all the prophets, peace be upon them.
I’m a Muslim and I am a human being who makes mistakes, who has her ups and downs, and I have the right to be treated as such or discriminated against because of the action of a minority that do not represent me or represent Islam.
