If you knew even the slightest thing about islam, you would know that it is everything but evil. if everyone followed islam (without being an extremist), then the world would be a really good place. those damned terrorists are ruining our name. there's only one problem with islam, either you are a terrorist or you dont take the religion seriously.

but me, im in the middle. i don't think people should die if they're not muslim. i don't think that youre going to hell if youre christian or jewish. if the world was that way, then allah would be a really cruel god, sending millions of people to hell. but he's not.

i'm a muslim and i believe that if you did more good things in life than bad then you are going to heaven. yes, i wear a hijab (head covering), but my parents didn't force me. my mom doesn't even wear one. i think in the middle east that people are too extreme. they should give people a choice, whether or not to cover them self, its their loss if they don't.

i don't blame america for the bad in the world. i don't blame the christians, cause we're like this too. i blame the bad people in this world. the people that drink, the people that don't cover themself. the people that steal. the people that go out and cheat on thier wife or husband, whatever religion, whatever race. there are good muslims on this earth, there are good christians, there are good jews. i believe that all the good people are going to heaven.

and the quran, its a very smart book. u should read it. you should follow it. if you believe in a different religion, then you should just keep in mind the parts of the book that arent against your religon.

jus leave out the parts where they tell you about doing islamic things that arent in your religon. i'm in high school now. and no one is really racist in our school. there are some but not many. and this reason is because they know about the true meaning of islam, cause i tell them.
