The True Face of Terrorism
In the Name of Allah, the Most Gracious, the Most Merciful.
My heart hurts today. Islamophobia is something that I strive to combat on a daily basis with writings such as this via social media, my YouTube channel, and in my book. Why? Because I know true Islam. The version that is utilized by the broad strokes of the media and groups such as ISIS are unfamiliar to me. I know the Islam that I feel when I am alone in prayer as well as when I am aligned in ranks in prayer with my Muslim Brothers from various parts of the world. Most of which are people that I have never seen before, but still feel as though I know them, simply because they are my Muslim Brothers and Sisters. I would do anything for them. I love them. It is such a wonderful feeling to stand beside people of all nationalities as we all bow before our Creator despite our races, economic status, or positions in this world. We are all humbled when we stand before Allah, our Creator. We will stand before him in a similar fashion on the day of judgment.
