come on julie, pull through and deliver the goods. my door is open. i’m all ears, have been since 16th december 2016.
tell me about even and islam.
his past with it. his current, present stance on it. would he like to revisit it and go back to it now, with sana/the balloon squad? what are his thoughts about islam right now? where does he place himself alongside it? is he at peace? does he feel shame and like his last attempts to connect with islam are invalid? does he want someone to talk to about it with in the form of long deep discussions? does he have questions? is he still curious? what does he remember? the drawings and the sketches? “not all muslims are terrorists”? learning the qur'aan in arabic? what are his thoughts on converting? would he ever? would he never? what did islam mean to him then? what does islam mean to him now? if he was to hear the qur'aan be recited in front of him, or see someone pray salah in front of him, or mention Allah or ramadhan or the Prophet Muhammad (SAW) or mention about a masjid … what would his reaction be? a smile showing a feeling of familiarity, or eyes wide in an overwhelming feeling of appreciation?
there’s so … many … questions i have.
and i’m ready. pen and paper in my hand ready to note it all down and analyse the hell out of it. i /need/ answers.
