"The Wall of Hate"

The once Chained are now the Ones to Chain.
A cancerous snake is quickly eating away at a nation of people. Genocide has been going on for over 50 years...and the world just watches. We have to be their voices, if anything will ever change.
"He who passively accepts evil is as much involved in it as he who helps to perpetrate it. He who accepts evil without protesting against it is really cooperating with it."
--Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.
Please take a few minutes out of your day and become a little more enlightened about the world that is so entangled within our own. Click on the link to "The Wall of Hate". Try to live 8 minutes in the shoes of these oppressed people and maybe things will become easier to understand: http://youtube.com/watch?v=PeCHBEOBVrw.

    Keep writing! It is one of the ways of fighting injustice and inshallah you will be rewarded for it. I fully share your frustration with what is happening to the muslims across the world. The injustices that are being done, not only from without, but perhaps even worse from within, are tearing at the already weak rope. How can any Muslim be apathetic to what is going on? It seems that we should be ashamed of ourselves because we do not practice what we preach. Other groups are acting more like muslims than us. Praying and fasting are only some of the duties of muslims, but not enough importance is being given to helping each other and ending the suffering of the opressed. Thanks again. Salaam.

  2. Please may I ask you a question?

    For my Russian oral exam I have chosen to speak on the topic: 'I believe that people should be free to wear religeous symbols'.
    I have been thinking of counter arguments so that I can practice rebuffing them and I have got one which I am not sure how to put down. It would be great if you could help me with this, for my own understanding as much as for the exam!
    I understand that hijab is not, as it is often seen by some people in the West, a symbol of oppression but rather a wonderful freedom. Muslim women who chose to wear the hijab often find it liberating, and one of the reasons for this is that they find it allows them to be treated as a person, rather than an object of beauty or lust. However, my question is, why should women have to wear a hijab in order to be respected by men?

    Thank you for your time and help!

  3. I am a college student who is looking into the training of Muslims so they can defend their faith. Are there certain classes? Certain Surah’s in the Qur’an? I would like to figure this out. The reason why I am asking this is I am looking at how other religions defend their faith, specifically Christianity. I am seeing what Christianity can learn from the Islamic faith and the dedication that goes on. If you could please send me a brief response that would be much appreciated! Thanks so much,

  4. I am an American teenage girl and I was wondering if there is a way I can just talk to a muslim teenage girl. I want to know their feelings about what is going on around them in America and what people are saying about them. Is there any way you can get teenage girls to answer some of the questions that I have and other girls, which are dying to ask? Is it possible that you get another section of you website just for teen girls?

A Message of Hope from your Muslim Neighbor

"Verily, with Hardship comes Ease." (Quran 94:6) As I listen to the news everyday, I realize more and more the true colors of our Nation. I'm not talking about the ugly colors we see on the news, I'm talking about the beautiful colors we are as a people.  America is full of diversity and beauty.  We are better than all of the riff-raff in Washington right now. The more horrible things pop up in front of the us, the more good people are taking a stance to say that this is not going to be our new norm.  Trump's America is not Our America.  I am sure that there will be ease at the end of this insanity.  I don't think that things will ever be the same as pre-Trump, but I am sure that it will be better.  Trump has destroyed a lot of things in his path, but he has unintentionally done one thing, he has united us as a people.  Through his attacks on all things diverse, we as an American people, have stood up to say that this is what makes America beautifu

Bye Don!

It has been a harrowing 1360 days, 13 hours and 20 minutes since Donald J. Trump became the "President" of the United States.  It has been difficult for anyone that believes in good and promotes it. It has been hard for a lot of us.  It is time to make a change and vote!  Two hundred and forty-four years cannot go down the drain in 4 years of one person's supposed reign of our country.  It is the responsibility of each and every one of us to VOTE HIM OUT and into PRISON. Two hundred and fourteen thousand  Americans are gone today due to his negligence with the Covid-19 virus that he keeps making light of.  There are still families being torn apart on our southern border, but that story is old, right? He shocks us every.single.day. with new horrific things he's said, done or tweeted.  We are just a cast in his reality TV show.  Times up Donald, we're not playing this game anymore. 

Twenty Five Years Later

This weekend marks my 25 th year of wearing hijab.   This year has brought on a lot of challenges in terms of holding tight to what we believe in.   There have been too many stories to mention or to force my mind to conjure up.   I am here to celebrate my loving affection to my hijab. My daughter is 12. She started to wear her hijab when she was 11. She asked to start when she was 6 or 7, but I wanted her to start because she really understood the meaning of wearing this crown of Islam.   I did not want her to start out of imitation of me or anyone else.    As times move toward extremely scary, I would be lying if I said I was not scared for her.   Thankfully, we can have more than one emotion course through us at any given time.   I have a lot of hope and when I can talk to myself enough, belief that we will definitely be ok.   I can’t live my life in fear of being who I was born to be.   I can’t live my life thinking that my family and I will be accepted any more or any le
