I’m A Muslim, And I Love You
Karim Boubker

Salam br. Karim,

Thank you for writing amazing article. I share the same feeling as you. Islam has taught me to be very respectful to others and be conscious of our actions. After reading your thoughts, I am thankful. I am reminded about the differences we have in this world. After all, we were informed that this world is a test for us to prove how we treat other humans with kindness, respect, and encouragement. We believe those things will be asked in hereafter (life after death).

The main roadblock I see is media and globalization are generalizing the problems. All the negative/fear headlines get to the top because of money from click baits, view counts, and ads. We can counter this by being responsible of educating/reminding our neighbors, friends, colleagues, and yes, even our Muslim communities on the truth about being a real Muslim versus what media has labeled us.

We Muslims are not any powerful, stronger, cooler, or different than other people. I laugh at this because others fear at us despite the fact we still need eat, drink (water), work for income, visit bathroom, breathe, exercise, take care of family, etc… I am a human being and so are you. For us to get along, we want to learn about each other’s culture/belief and understand each other’s shoes. Learning is key. Knowledge is very powerful to change ourselves for the better.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
