i have never had someone very close to me die, but whenever someone I knew from somewhere dies, especially my age, it gets stuck in my head. it’s happened every time i’ve heard someone i knew of or personally has died for the past three or so years. i play it over and over again in my head and i think about it and i don’t stop. i remember the date. i look at pictures of them. ...
I know it might sound silly
But if I ever find a faith in any god, it will probably be the God of the Qur’an. It was just so beautiful, all of it. I don’t believe in it, but god. It can take your breathe away, seeing Muslims worship and interact with their faith.
so i went to the Muslim Student Association's...
and omg i am so happy. they were sooooo nice to me. I don’t think I have ever met a friendlier group of girls in my life. how sweet they were, and they were from all over. Algeria, Egypt, Palestine, Tennessee, Michigan, New Jersey, even Morocco! :D Some hijabis, some not, some guys. And everyone was so nice. I got to hear Arabic spoke in real life for the first time. (OMG it is such a...

I have to do this stupid assignment
For ~first year studies~ (even though I’ve been taking college courses for two years. OMG stuipidest stuff ever), where I pick the three leaders I admire the most. And I chose: Franklin Delano Roosevelt (I KNOW that he made the executive order for Japanese internment and that WAS NOT COOL, but other than that, he was a kick ass president. for real.)

mohandasgandhi: Something that has always bothered me is the West’s identification of “Allah” or “God.” Allah is simply the Arabic word for God, correct? Yet, when so many in the West and Western media talk of Islam, they always use the name Allah instead of God, which does something very significant: it makes Islam seem foreign. Ever notice the translations we use when we’re reviewing,...

there are issues, but there is beauty.
the democratic primary was, less than a hundred years ago, a party which supported segregation and had white-only primaries, but now a black man is our Democratic president. i am the descendant of slave owners (not something I am proud of, just to make clear), and i am in love with a black boy and my family adores him. there are still a lot of issues in the US, but sometimes i like to look at...
