What does it mean to be Muslim? Are Muslims considered terrorists? Is there a specific skin color or perhaps is arabic considered to be an ethinic group?
People define Islam as only a religion. They are people who beleive in Allah and who are strongly stricted with their females. They are terrorists, well atleast thats what media has emphasized.
After September 11th 2001, America was hit hard, the terrifying and horrible things that happened will never be forgotten,but was it the only country who was affected other than it being pyshical?Shouldn’t we also think about the trouble that was caused for all Muslim people. It killed thousands of people but it also caused every Muslim to lose there confidents and pride. Who wants to be known as a Muslim. How hard can it be to be a muslim female wearing the HIjab and be called terrorist. Or to be told to go back to your country, you dont belong here. To have a name sound arabic or Osama means you had some part of September 11th. It means that you were happy and proud of what Osama Bin Laden has done.The truth is no matter how much Muslims were against September 11th it really doesnt matter. No matter how much they have tried to show their sympathy to all the people that got hurt, it still doesnt matter because your name sounds arabic, you speak the language, and you follow the religion of Islam. Do people really know the meaning of terrorist?
Is there a specific skin color to be Muslim? We all imagine them as tan, or dark skin, dark eyes and hair, big nose, and not very attractive. That is what we think though!
Reality is, anyone can be Muslim, you can be any color, race and from any country. Its not about the appearence, its more of what you believe. It is a religion but it is also a complete way of life.
It is peace, mercy and forgiveness. When you walk into a hospital or clinic and they ask for your ethnicity, what do you say? Arabic is not considered a Ethnic group, so it only means that you are other. Ive always wondered why it was so important that we most ask for race and ethnicity. What difference does it make, aren’t people supposed to be equal, didnt the Declaration of Independence declare that all men are created equal. So why keep up with the questions, and what difference does it make?
History is what to thank. It taught us the down falls of what every nation has caused to others. It reminded us what African Americans were used as and let people think it was once okay. I believe that what history and even media shows is partially untrue, because every person wants to look better in anothers eye. Its what we are told and see that makes people think of other nations, race, and ethnicity of what they are and how they should be treated. People shouldnt judge because we are all created equal no matter your color.
I have learned today that you may look a certain way and seem like your from a specific culture but really aren’t. No one can predict that you are Muslim because of your skin color or what you wear, its almost impossible to assume that someone is what they seem. Appearence is only whats from the outside.
