    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.


    "I put my trust in Allah, my Lord and your Lord! There is not a moving creature, but He has a grasp of its forelock. Verily, my Lord is on the straight path. (The truth)"

    "...Indeed my prayer, my sacrifice, my living and my dying are for Allaah, the Lord of the worlds" (6:162)
