9/11… The Day I Became Muslim

September 12, 2007

Found this through UmAdam’s blog.  It is the first entry in a new category:  “Featured Posts from Other Blogs”

Here it is 6 years later and as it was then it is still now. 9/11 is a day of reflection for me for several reasons. On 9/11 I found out that:

1: I really was a Marine

2: I was willing to die for my country

3: Islam is infact not only a religion of peace, but the truth

Most people have no problem with 1 and 2 when I ordinarily re-tell this story, but number 3 is always met with hostility.

    Though I don’t cover all the time, I’ve cried bitter tears for the victims of 9/11 and can’t stand the fact that so many people may see me as “hijab wearing terrorist,” whenever I do cover up. That may seem superficial, but I agree Islam is a peaceful religion of truth and the image of muslims has so been distorted.
