My family and I, we don’t have to be subjected to the reactive anti Muslim hatred boiling up.
I could easily take off my scarf and blend right in. My husband could easily shave his beard and go unnoticed.
But we don’t. And, by God’s Mercy, we never will.
We stand tall and walk with confidence. The way you would if you knew you had the earth’s largest diamond, or the next world changing invention, or a bank account with a few billion dollars.
Because, the Islam we’ve been given is better than every last bit of good the world has to offer all together.
It’s why we are here… And this struggle?
People before us went through worse.
When you see us I want you to wonder… Wonder and ask yourself what is so good about Islam that we stand up tall with confidence and a smile, even when the whole world seems to be against us.
