What Islam is to me

Reader comment on item: [Pakistani Christians and] A War Against What?
in response to reader comment: What is Islam to me?

Submitted by Yaya (United States), Mar 3, 2006 at 20:33

I grew up being taught everything that is right and wrong through the religion of Islam. You wanted them to ask a woman who is African and grew up through the religion of Islam, then they should ask me because thats exactly me. I grew up in a country that is 90% muslims and you want to know something interesting our country is one of the most peaceful countries in Africa. I am proud of my identity as a muslim but I am ashamed of all those people that use the message of Islam in a manipulative way that you know they oppressed their own people. Islam is truly a beautiful religion, you have to follow the Quran not the word of mouth to see the true beauty of this religion.
