    These past two days at school...

    Yesterday during class there were a few kids talking about the whole Danish cartoon issue. I heard one of them saying that the Muslims were "making such a big deal over a damn cartoon". I went over and told him that it wasn't just a political cartoon; it was a RELIGIOUS cartoon that depicted a completely incorrect message and was very offensive. He went on saying that Muslims are all really just a bunch of terrorists and they try hiding it. I told him that he shouldn't be ignorant of the belief of a faith just by basing it off of the stories that he gets from the media. He got even more angry and started saying some really mean stuff about my family, Prophet Muhammad(sws), and Islam altogether. I almost cried, kasme.

    I finally figured I'd just ignore it. There's no use trying to enlighten the narrow-minded. The strange thing is, we used to get along just fine. I mean we weren't like "good friends" or anything, but we talked every now and then...

    Today at school, he came up and apologized. He said some of the other guys talked some sense into him and told him that he was being a real jerk the day before. He said he didn't really mean all that he said. I forgave him.

    We're pals now.

      I was pretty serious up to above this line and had thought of a serious reply but when I read it, couldn't resist it

          EMM - Yea. Especially after 9/11. I know lots of people that suffered much worse than just being cursed at.

            UF - Haha I was actually *this* close to cursing him right back out.

            Shikra - I couldn't resist either. I should've screamed that right in his face.

                  Kasme, I would've slapped him, but then he'd be like "See?! All of these Muslims are violent..blah blah blah!"



                  Anyways, he didn't really mean it to begin with. He's my pal. =]

                    another thing that came to my mind is that why should we give justifications that islam is not a terrorist- religion.

                      because we've had a few major incidents in which people are using Islam to justify their actions.

                          I'm talking about Islam's reputation as a whole...and how the media has been protraying it.

                          That's why we need to give justification that Islam does not support terrorism.

                          ...It's a good thing that the truth is always easier to prove

                              We can't even depict him gloriously, or with pomp and show. How can we tolerate him being depicted as a terrorist and a bomb?

                              Phatima you're a bright young girl. Im glad you were so patient in your dealing. We must show them that we're not a violent race of terrorist.

                              May Allah reward you greatly, and guide us all. Ameen.
