A little – but necessary – rant

Salaam!

I think most of my readers here are Muslim so you will probably understand what I’m about to rant about.

How many times have Muslims tried to prove that they are good people and stand with other communities in their time of crisis? How many times do Muslims have to say it for the world to believe it? The answer is – the world isn’t going to. It doesn’t matter what we do. Because although oh we can’t judge a person, they can judge us simply for being Muslim.

I cringe a little inside when something happens and Muslims are not a part of it yet we see our lot trying so hard to convince the affected that we are ‘with’ them.

I’m not saying we’re not – I’m glad Muslims feel for everyone else. But what makes me cringe is that even in 2017, we have to prove ourselves to the world. What kind of a liberal world is this? You’re accepted for denouncing God but shunned for believing in one? How is that equality? You’re allowed to have freedom of belief and thought – but only if it resonates with people who aren’t religious.

I’m not very religious either, but I should have the option without worrying that the world will throw me into a dark place.

Why is it that Muslims educate themselves about other cultures of the world to help them out, but one thing happens in the Muslim world and the world tells us we’re a religion of hate? Our countries are backward and barbarian, am I right?

People don’t really want to understand Islam, I get it. But if you’re not going to read up on it then don’t go about commenting on it.

Like I tell everyone – GET YOUR FACTS STRAIGHT.

Ah that’s me done. Have a great day and a blessed Ramadan!

Salaam.
