There is a stereotype that Muslims get easily offended. Yes we are offended. We are offended by the slander of our Prophet peace be upon him. We are offended by a culture that revolves around materialism and the objectification of women. We are offended that Muslims are considered misogynists by people who vote for conservative Christians who take rights away from women.

We are offended by a culture in which morality is so low, that governments can occupy sovereign territory, start wars based on lies, drop bombs on the heads of children, and imprison the innocent and still be reelected the next year. Yes, we offended, the question is, why isn’t everyone else?

          I pray that the brothers and sisters who passed away in Nigeria are in a better place. I can’t believe this is still happening, but don’t worry Allah Subantala will handle these unjust organizations.  Extremists think they are doing us a favor…do us a favor and stop attacking and killing our loved ones.  Islam never condones violence and never will.  When you look at the Muslim countries it’s about standing up together against oppression and hurting others.  Think about the day of Judgement when you stand in front of the Almighty and answer his questions.  Let’s pray for those who were affected in this attack and other hate crime’s.  Peace and blessings to all my brothers and sisters.  Love you all for the sake of Allah. 

Anonymous asked: How did you feel converting from Christianity to Islam? Did you feel like you were, in some way, betraying Jesus? God bless.

allah-is-love:

Asalaamu Alaikum,

Thanks for the great question. When I first started to look into Islam, something that I struggled with was feeling like I was abandoning/betraying Isa (Jesus) a.s. Now that I know more about Isa a.s. and the Islamic view of him, I feel like I have a closer “relationship” with him as a prophet, and have a better, more grounded, understanding of him as a person than I did when I was Christian.

Although Muslims do not believe that Isa a.s. is God, or the son of God, we do believe that he is a great prophet. We believe in the immaculate conception and we believe, as Christians do, that he ascended into heaven, has not yet died, and will come again on the Day of Judgement.

While I respect the fact that many Christians do connect with their religion, some things in Christianity about Jesus, a.s., never quite made sense to me and kept me from feeling fully devoted. The concept of God having a son always seemed a little too much like Greek mythology. The idea that this son is also a part of God didn’t quite add up, since Isa, a.s., prostrated in prayer to God just like humans - which he probably wouldn’t do if he himself was God. The idea that he had to die to save all humans from original sin didn’t add up for several reasons: for this to be necessary, something more powerful than God would have to be forcing his hand - and nothing is more powerful than God. Also, God does not ask for human sacrifice, and no human is ever accountable for another’s sins.

When I fully realized that, in my heart, I didn’t believe that Jesus was synonymous with God, I felt that if I prayed to him, I would be worshiping a human being and not God, which would not only be committing a grave sin, but disrespecting Isa a.s. himself, who spread the message of God’s oneness just like the prophets before him and the prophet Muhammad p.b.u.h. after him.

To me, it was a relief to no longer be asked to believe these things about Isa a.s., but instead to see him as a prophet of God and one of the greatest humans to ever walk this earth.

inlovewithgreen94 asked: This girl in my class wants to wear a hijab because she thinks they're pretty. I find that disrespectful because I'm Muslim and she knows that but she says she doesn't mean to be disrespectful.

No this shit is extremely offensive. As a kid I would have my hijab snatched OFF my head and thrown on the ground. I was teased mercilessly by many of the children I went to school with because they didn’t understand or hadn’t even heard of Islam and the meaning behind covering my head. A boy would torment me and I came home to tell my sister, who ended up fighting him. The bullying from the other children got so bad that my father told us (my two sisters and I) that we could stop wearing them.

When I read this post all I can think about is the hardship I faced all because of my hijab. And some girl thinks it’s pretty and that’s why she wants to wear one. No. She should not ever in life wear one.

They are pretty….

I have this issue all the time.

Personally I wish I could embrace other cultures through dress, but Tumblr has taught me that is Cultural Appropriation so I will not do it.

Its sucks tho

Hijabs are not “cultural” they are religious, hijabs are not “pretty” wearing the hijab is an act of worship. There are Muslim women from all races and cultures who wear the hijab. Honestly I find it flat out disrespectful when people talk about the hijab as if it’s a cute little accessory. It’s not something to try on for a day. It is especially disrespectful given the large amount of prejudice and discrimination women who wear the hijab face.

Also by wearing it people will asociate her with Islam…Everything she will do will feed people s opinion about Islam so yeah…it s a big problem
