Assalamualaikum Dear Mac,

Please let me inform u that a Muslim is a person who has a Islam label on it and did not always follow Islam by heart. The one you want to know about are the "Muttaqin", the muslim who follows Islam by heart (has Taqwa). Of course you will always find some guy who breaks the rule in a community, you just have to know how to differentiate them.Please do not be misjuge by just labels.

Please forgive my brothers or sisters who may offend you in any way. Islam is supposed to be "Rahmatan Lil Alamiin" (Kindness to the Universe), you just have to meet the right muslim to know this.... Thank you for your kind understanding..

Waalaikumsalam,
Fajri Al Kautsar
