Islam Simplified | A Guide to Better Understanding Islam

So you’ve heard these terms so many times, whether on CNN, the latest bill being passed or on the train station- Mozlems this, Muslims that, Islam this, Radical Islamists that. 

Some Muslims don’t drink, others own the bar down the street, some muslim women wear a hijab, some are covered from face, to head to toe, others are tanning in a bikini at the beach. So what’s the deal with these Muslims you might wonder? Who are they and what do they believe? 

This will be the first post of a series of “Islam 101″ blogposts to better explain what Islam is to those who think all we do is set off bombs and yell “Allah Akbar” *eye roll*

In this post specifically I’ll be covering some main ideas that will (hopefully) make the foreign map of Muslim beliefs be more navigable. 

The One Thing–  There are 1.7 billion Muslims in the world and counting. Across the board, from east to west the one absolute thing that all Muslims have in common is their belief in the oneness of God. Continue reading

Absolutely Hateful Letter Targeted at Muslims | When will Islamophobia stop?

I’m simply appalled at the fact that someone has so much hate in their heart towards people they don’t even know. Furthermore, what pisses me off about this situation, is the fact that the media didn’t cover it with the same magnitude it rushes to cover anything that’s related to a “muslim” doing something bad.

In case you’re wondering what I’m blabbing about, read this letter that was sent to muslims in the U.K:

Punish a Muslim Day Letter

“Punish A Muslim Day” letters are being sent to families in East London. The letter details a point system for each action & reward. For example pulling a Muslim woman’s hijab is 25 points, throwing acid is 50 points and burning or bombing a mosque is a whole 1,000 points.

What bothers me even more, is the fact that nobody’s been able to track where this bloody letter came from? Is it really that hard to track where the letter was sent and where it was received? Is it really that hard, or is it just because the matter “isn’t that big of a deal?”

I’m so tired of these idiots going back and forth between themselves, whether ISIS, or KKK or islamophobes or Nazis or whatever else have you; these mentally disturbed bigots going around freely causing all kinds of chaos for no particular reason. I’d really like to collect the bunch of them and dump them into the amazon and hope they learn that the only way to survive is if they stopped trying to kill everybody that didn’t look and act like them.

This letter bothers me so much. I don’t understand people like that, I really don’t. Is hating Muslims a hobby now? Why don’t you throw acid at each others face to practice a little before you throw it on Muslims? Really, you don’t wanna come unprepared to your cult’s annual event. I swear, this is absolutely embarrassing to the human race, street animals behave better than this. This is absolutely shameful.

I know that some people wrote the letter below in response to the hateful one. And I definitely want to say, I appreciate it, and I know that not everybody is hateful etc.
