...on both sides.

Sometimes, when I'm outside, I really become paranoid :D I imagine, what people think about me and my hijab while they are staring et me (even if they don't do).
Then I stop and I think of all the other possible reasons, that make people look at me. And I realize that as Muslims we are often too sensitive and we are at risk to make the same mistakes, that we face: We generalize.

You know, I have many non-muslim friends and I very rarely faced any racist-based acts of hatred. And the few cases were merely ridiculous, alhamdulillah (thank God).

So we need tolerance on both sides.
As Muslims we need to leave behind the role of a victim and be more confident - and I mean self-confidence as well as some more trust in our fellow men. We can't cooperate while being suspicious towards each other.

Please note:
"Infidels" isn't meant seriously, it's not the word I would choose myself, that's why I put it in quotes. Rather I wanted to show, that the girl on the right side thinks, that the muslim girl will call her "infidel". So her own interpretation makes her be offended.

Brother Nayzak reminded me, that Allah said in the holy Qur'an: "O you who have believed, avoid much [negative] assumption. Indeed, some assumption is sin..."
[from Translation of 49:12]

It's really a shame how if we give attention to religion, it can be misconstrued as contempt. In honesty, I'm pretty interested in the Islamic faith! I myself am Christian, but learning about the beliefs and practices is interesting to me. Even so, it's never ok to condemn someone for their beliefs and faith!

Sad but true. 

If I look at a Muslim woman it's usually because I think her hijab is cool. There's one woman who came into the store I work at a few times wearing a pink hijab with a baseball cap over it. IDK why, but I just love how that looked.

"You filth"
"Filthy creature"
"Don't touch that, It'll be as foul as you are"
"Nadjes-ol-Ain" (Filth in nature)
"Dog"
"Traitor"
"We should have wiped you people out ages ago"
"Hey can I ask you something? Why do you worship false gods?"
"Such a shame your faith is mentioned in the Qur'an, Or we would have killed you dogs off"
"How dare you even talk to us?"
The above sentences are just some of the insults I, As a religious minority, encountered from Muslims in several countries, Including but not limited to: Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Iran. I have never insulted Islam, Not even in the privacy of my room, So why must I be treated this way? And how do such people expect me to feel amity towards oppressed Muslims in other countries?

They sound like the worst of the Muslim society and if they believe in their religion they will be answered for that on "judgement day"

I am very sorry to hear that.. I cannot tell how sad it makes me to read that you have encountered this hate. I have many friends from all kinds of faith and beliefs and it's my task and yours to keep strong and to refuse the hate these people are spreading. From human to human I am telling you: Thank you for not responding to them in the same manner. This is a sign of honor and strength - please stay like this.

There are two points I forgot to mention:
1. The areas I visited were not necessarily the most cultured, Mostly smaller towns with small (And highly conservative) populations (Archaeological digs can take you anywhere, Even in the middle of the desert).
2. The people I met were not necessarily the best of the Muslim society.
Thus, It's safe to assume such encounters, While still painful, Were in no way representative of the true Islam. They were mostly Muslims in name only, Who had never even read the Quran.

If I remember correctly (I have read the Quran, Multiple times), The term "Jihad" has been mentioned around 40-50 times (Needless to say "Jihad" meaning "Defense against those who have invaded your lands", And also that it cannot be issued by any random individual), While the terms "Peace", "Serenity" and similar words are mentioned over 300 times. This should give a good idea of the religion Islam is supposed to be.

And then the muslim girl will behead the infidel in the name of Allah, Prophet Muhammed(Peace Be With Him) and the Islam itself

And she, alongside all the muslims, will exterminate the retarded europeans that let them enter in their countries and change everything out there at the level of have applied Sharia out there because of the stupid european non-foreign agression politics and they will take the shot and exterminate the rest of the non-muslims of the world, ban science, technology or any kind of development or reform under death penalty, obey Islam and everything it represents with no objection, in a society where it's form of government is absolute dictatorship, where we never can ever question or ask "why" do we have to do this?(philosophy ban, democracy ban and ban everything that contradicts something that makes part of the Islam), a worldwide society of bigots, puppets, hatred people that mix politics and religion that will be materially miserable forever, but as long as there's Islam in our lives, we can never question anything it says and be happy with it!! ^_^

I'm sorry but this is your dream, isn't it? you see us, the non-muslims, as inferior subhumans for not following Islam and that we shall be erased for it, you muslims are taking adventage of european kindness and respect to disrespect them, call the females ones of whores for not been wearing the hijab, impose your religion upon them, recruit new terrorists to fight in the Allah as jihadists, dominate them and impose Sharia, a group of laws that should be imposed only in muslims, not in us, disrepecting cultural differences, spiting in the dish we are giving to you in our house that we are kindly hosting you, and when one or another man gets angry with your disrespect, you whine as a victim and for revenge of it, you slaughter non-muslim people or protest in the streets with posters written: "slay those who insult Islam", "fuck democracy, we want Islam", "i want Sharia being imposed as law worldwidely", "Islam will dominate the world" and etc

If i'm wrong, please tell me in details why i'm wrong, i beg you, i want to hear your version to avoid manipulation and a narrow-minded way of think

Did you read my comment under the picture? Especially the ony about the term "infidel"?

I am sorry that you feel threatened by my religion. And I am sorry that you don't seem to understand that the purpose of works is to unite people, Muslims and non-Muslims. I don't want to erase anyone and I want to impose my religion upon anyone.

I hate slaughter, terrorists and narrow-mindedness as as much as you do. And I love science (I am holding a Master in Psychology), democraty and technology as much as you do.

I think most of what you think and said is based on things you heard about the so called "muslim" world, and indeed, there are problems, but I really want you to question where they come from. Read about corruption, poverty, politics and post-colonialism. And read about Andalusia, about the muslim heritage. Nothing is black and white. People have always done good and bad things, whether they were Muslims, Christians, Buddhist, Marxist, Socialist or whatever. It is tough but necessary to realize that people abuse any ideology to gain more power etc. The world is much more complex than it seems..

Have a nice day.

So is there any solutions for that or do you just sit and watch and wait for an upcoming catastrophe?
Please, I'm really confused today about muslims matters and the situation going right now and I wish you could provide me more advices on it.
Anyway, Have a great day and peace for you.

I thought the easiest way to find out was to smile nice at them.
If they were thinking something mean they get confused most of the time or the thought vanishes and they smile back.

At least it eases my mind XD

I don't get it. One of the beauties of life is that we're all different. I like learning the trivial stuff about people. e.g, their ethnicity/nationality, beliefs, favorite food, etc.. why? Because if you ask the same things to another person, you get (most of the time) a whole new set of answers. Why hold it against them?
