    When I say. . .

    When I say. . .I am a Muslim,
    I'm not shouting "down with Christians and Jews."
    I am whispering "I seek peace,"
    and Islam is the path that I choose.

    When I say. . . I am a Muslim,
    I speak of this with pride.
    And confess that sometimes I stumble,
    and need Allah to be my guide.

    When I say. . .I am a Muslim,
    I know this makes me strong.
    And in those times when I am weak,
    I pray to Allah for strength to carry on.

    When I say. . . I am a Muslim,
    I'm not boasting of success.
    I'm acknowledging that Allah has rescued me,
    and I cannot ever repay the debt.

    When I say. . .I am a Muslim,
    I'm not claiming to be perfect.
    My flaws are indeed visible,
    but Allah forgives because his followers are worth it.

    When I say. . .I am a Muslim,
    it does not mean I will never feel pain.
    I still have my share of heartaches,
    which is why I invoke Allah's name.

    When I say. . .I am a Muslim,
    I do not wish to judge.
    I have no such authority
    My duty is to submit to Allah's all-encompassing love.
