sana and isak’s conversations about religion are so important because not only is the show trying to help break the stigma surrounding islam but also surrounding young people who openly have religious beliefs and who mention those religious beliefs.
i can’t remember seeing a young character who obviously has religious beliefs but who isn’t depicted as some sort of sheep who doesn’t have a mind of their own. shows and movies always fall into that trap. if you’re religious, you’re meant to be looked at through condescending eyes, you’re that kid who can’t think for themselves, you’re the one who’s meant to be the subject of ridicule. your religion is that silly thing. you’re not as cool. you can’t possibly be cool. your beliefs are meant to be seen as something that belongs in an other era and if you have them, it means you’re somehow not up to date with the world, it means that you haven’t opened your eyes yet.
and that’s how it is in real life too. i remember being a young teen and all my friends being non-religious and just wanting to pretend that i was also non-religious, because that would be the easiest thing to do, because then i wouldn’t have to explain, i wouldn’t have to try to proove that i was still a smart girl “despite” my beliefs, and that way other people wouldn’t look at me funny and think i was an idiot.
so to have a character like sana who is so unashamed of her beliefs, but who, at the same time, is portrayed as a brilliant, wise girl, as a girl who isn’t afraid to stand up for what’s right, kick some ass to defend her friends, who is the complete opposite of a sheep, who doesn’t shy away when isak confronts her about her beliefs is just so incredibly important and refreshing
