dont ever tell me that my religion is the reason that terrorists killed innocents 6 years ago today. there are many reasons, not all of which i claim to fully understand, but Islam was not one of those reasons. maybe the people doing it thought they were doing it for that reasons, but they werent, they were doing it because they were angry and foolish, and thought that they had justification.

i dont want excuses. i dont want crap about how the Quran teaches us to hurt non Muslims, it doesnt. i dont want to hear that any of this crap is my fault, and i dont want to hear that i ahve to apologize for it. it wasnt me. i didnt do it. my fellow Muslims who truly follow the quran did not do this. dont tell me that Islam is a problem for the west, its not. we dont want you all to follow shariah. sharia is for Muslim countries.

America is not a muslim country, it is a melting pot of many ethnicities. we dont want to blow you up, this isnt 24. i know that there are radicals who would like to harm america out there, but they are not as numerous nor as powerful as you have been told. the muslim ummah needs to stop them, to get on its feet and show the whole world that Islam is not a religion for arabs, or for pakistanis, or for Americans, but for all, black or white, rich or poor, strong or weak. Islam is not a racist entity.

Those who have taken Islam as their banner need to stop. Terrorists need to stop using my religion in their name, and in the name of billions of other people who do not agree with them. who condemn them. who mourn the loss of life in New York, in Pennsylvania, and in Maryland, of people who could be with their families, but for the malice of angry killers, who thought that they were in the right. I ask Allah (God) (swt) to help everyone around the world, rich, poor, black, white, or brown, Muslim or non Muslim, who is in need of help, and to plant the want for knowledge and learnedness in the hearts of everyone.

Ameen and Ramadan Mubarak.
