Islamophobia in the U.S.




ter·ror·ism
ˈterəˌrizəm/ter·ror·ism
noun
the use of violence and intimidation in the pursuit of political aims.


Why did I start with the definition of terrorism? The answer lies in the issue at hand. The issue is Islamophobia. Do you know what it is? Do you understand how prevalent it has become? As of today, the hate crimes against Muslims continues to rise. Yet, we don’t see this in the media. What we see in the media is scary men in mask, removing heads. We see bloody images of foreign men, in our google image search.



We’ve been told to fear these people. We’ve been told that they are different. We’ve been told they want us all dead or to convert. We’ve all been fed lies. 

So the question becomes, do you want to know the truth?




The truth is always complicated. And, I’m sure we can all admit that, depending on who’s telling it, can be biased. So let’s start with facts. Let’s talk about what cannot be disputed.






The west continually enters the Middle Eastern countries at will, for ambiguous political reasons. The west bombs and sends troops into these countries at will and no one blinks an eye. They set up base camps and take control and the people stand behind them. No one questions why we are going into these countries constantly. Why are we constantly creating trained groups that we in turn label terrorist? Why doesn’t this stop the people in their tracks and make them wonder what is the real agenda?
Enter the media. If you keep feeding the people the same propaganda, before long they will readily take it, without question. Just keep posting videos of scary men in masks, and strange religious practices, and misquoted statements. Continue to flush the internet with out of context religious texts. This is the way the media works. There is an agenda. Why? To keep you afraid.

If you are afraid of Muslims, you will never wonder why your government is attacking them constantly. If you are afraid of Muslims, you will never question where your tax dollars are going to in these military practices. You will not care about the people losing not only their homes, their land, and their livelihood, but their lives, as well. Because these are scary terrorist. They want us all dead.






But what does it mean to be terrorist? Think about it. The moment a person steps up and uses whatever means he has at his/her exposal to fight back, he/she is labeled a terrorist. What about the ones they are fighting? If someone kicked in your front door and murdered half your family, would you take it? If your children were afraid of going outside because they fear the sky, how would you feel? Still like drones?

 If your daughter was getting married and her whole wedding party was murdered in a drone attack, but the ones responsible apologized, would you forgive them? Or if this was your daily life, would you fight back? Would you consider the ones doing these things terrorists? And, yet, it’s the victims being called terrorist.

Do I believe there are Muslims who are terrorist? Yes. Do I believe they make up a large percent? No. I no more believe that Isis represents Islam than I believe Wesboro Baptist represents Christianity.
So why make the people afraid? Because of money. In every agenda linked to the government, the basis is money and power. In every war, there has been a patsy. Someone to justify all the horrible things that will be done. 
In WW2, we saw the Japanese in America being treated like criminals and slaves. We saw them locked in cages and prisons, while the majority of people didn’t blink an eye. They lost everything, including their dignity, but no one cared. Why? Because of fear. And fear has a long history of being used in the west.
With a history built on slavery and genocide, you’d think the people would learn. People were told to fear Native Americans. They were told to fear African-Americans, Irish settlers, and anyone too different.
It’s kind of ironic that the land of the free is really nothing more than the land of the afraid.
I recently wrote a blog titled religion of peace. It demonstrated how Christianity is not always so Christian. It shown the light on how not all Buddhist behave so serenely. Basically, it showed us that in every religion, there are some bad extreme people.

I could show many links and images that point out the horrible things being done by people of other religions. I could show you screenshots of the things people have said to me online for no other reason than I am Muslim, but instead, I’d like to share the things you don’t see. The good things. We don’t see enough of the positive side.
In these images, you will see Muslims helping others. You will see them shoveling snow and cleaning the streets. You will them helping the elderly and the homeless. I hope to show everyone what it really means to be Muslim

VIDEO: Wendell Phillips's extraordinary quest


Wendell Phillips is often described as America's Lawrence of Arabia.
In 1949 he put together the largest archaeological expedition to Yemen, hoping to find the ancient cities of Timna and Marib - legendary home of the Queen of Sheba.
What Phillips discovered and his trail blazing adventures are the subject of a new exhibition, Unearthing Arabia, at the Freer and Sackler Galleries in Washington.
The BBC's Jane O'Brien went to see how a dashing young explorer made history on one of the last frontiers of archaeology.

A powerful call Azan #islam #muslim #islamophobia

A powerful call Azan







Anyone who's ever visited a predominitely Muslim country has probably heard the call to prayer. Most recently, in the news, there was a couple who sued over the call to prayer. They didn't want the Azan to interrupt their vacation, regardless that they were guests in a foreign country. Wether you love it or hate it, your opinion is molded by the influences of your life. But, what if you could hear it for the first time without bias? Without prejudice? Without any knowledge of what it meant?



What if you were an innocent 3 year old American child? The world still holding all it's mystery and goodness, you're still able to feel hope and faith without fear. What must it be like to hear the Azan in that state? Surely it must be wonderous. 
Luckily we have the chance to see that happen. In a video, popular on youtube, you can see her face. Stunned she looks around, trying to understand what she's hearing and where it's coming from, as she asked her father to explain. Her face hold so much emotion and fascination. She isn't offended. She isn't indifferent. She is enthralled by what she hears. At one moment she stops with a look on her tiny little face that is indescribable. Searching, both inside and out, for what it is she's hearing and feeling. It's pure. 
To watch it now, I can feel the amazement. And maybe, this little 3 year old girl can teach us all something. To forget the things we've been conditioned to think. To stop and listen. To feel.

Religion of Peace



So, many times I’ve told people that Islam is a religion of peace. Truly, it is. Yet, every time I say it there is someone there to scoff or make a face. What religion condones beheading, I’ve been asked numerous times. What religion condones criminal acts against anyone of a different faith, another one I’ve heard? The list goes on and on.
What if we take a minute to look at human nature first? What if the things done in the name of religion, have nothing to do with religion? What if a religion is peaceful, but not necessarily passive? There are so many factors, but no one wants to address anything but what the media is force-feeding them daily about Islam and Muslims. What if we reverse that mirror?
But wait! Aren’t Muslims the only ones who are doing these horrendous things? That’s what the news says. That’s what social media says.  Let’s see:



That last link may confuse some of you. Isn’t Isis a Muslim group? Hmmm, do the people in the pictures pasted below represent Christianity just because they claim it?





Is this Christianity? ….

Hajj explained: your simple guide to Islam’s annual pilgrimage



Millions of Muslims this week flock to Islam’s holiest city of Makkah to perform the annual hajj pilgrimage.
Being the fifth pillar of Islam, hajj or the act of making a pilgrimage is a mandatory religious duty for Muslims.
Adult Muslims are required to perform hajj at least once in lifetime if they have the physical and financial ability.
In it, pilgrims follow the footsteps of Prophet Ibrahim and his family, said Ridwan al-Sayed, professor of Islamic studies at the Lebanese University in Beirut.
“Prophet Ibrahim preached the oneness of allha  , a message that was later revived and renewed by the last of all Prophets, Muhammad (peace be upon him),” 
“Ibrahim, along with his son Ismail built the Kaaba in the holy city of Makkah. And accordingly, this pillar reflects the notion of complete submission to Allah and the Abrahamic faith.”
For many pilgrims, hajj is perceived to be a journey of the body and the soul at the same time.
The first day of hajj is 8 Zil Hijjah, the last month of the Islamic calendar. The holy journey requires the pilgrim to perform ten rituals before and during hajj.
Here are the basic steps you may want to know about hajj:
State of Ihram: This is considered the first step for any pilgrim wishing to perform hajj. To enter the state of Ihram, a pilgrim has to recite an intention to perform hajj called the Talabiya. This is when a pilgrim prepares one’s soul, mind and body for journey to the Almighty God. Entering the stage begins from the Miqat, or a place that is outside the pilgrimage area.
Men and women going on hajj adhere to a specific dress code which is aimed at showing modesty and shedding all signs of wealth. Men don unstitched white garments, while women wear normal stitched clothes and a headscarf. Women are forbidden however from wearing the burqa or niqab.
In fact, the word Ihram originates from the Arabic term Tahreem, which means prohibited. Because the state is believed to have a special essence of spiritual purity, there are certain acts that are not allowed for pilgrims. Among them are using perfumes, cutting hair or nails, and slaughtering animals.
Makkah: The Saudi Arabian city is considered Islam’s holiest site, as it holds al-Masjid al-Haram or the Grand Mosque that surrounds the Kaaba, a cuboid shaped building which Muslims believe has been put up together by Prophet Ibrahim and his son Ismail almost 4, 000 years ago.
