  • The man, armed with with a metal baseball bat, then got out of the car. The girls all ran back to the All Dulles Area Muslim Society mosque in Sterling where they were making their nightly Ramadan prayers.

lmao muslim women only wear hijab because koran says that women body is dirty and you can only show your body to your father or man. koran control women. i'm happy that i'm human who independently and made independently decisions. not follow some misogyny book writen by man god who thinks men are better than women. religons are shit. believe in yourself not in some god man.

first of all, thank you for hiding behind the anonymous icon and judging me for a small piece of cloth i put on my head, it just proves how ignorant you are <3 

now let me tell you a few things about the quran (yes, quran not Koran),  all too often, people read the quran selectively, taking phrases out of context,  use it for whatever point they want to make and i think you’re one of those people. unlike what you believe, islam is not a religion where women sit and take orders, actually I do not know of another religious tradition in which women were so central, so present, so active in its formative history, from the first years of islam women scholars taught judges and imams, issued fatwas, and traveled to distant cities. Some made lecture tours across the Middle East. the real question here is “Are Men and Women Equal Before Allah?” and any person with a brain, who read the quran knows that the answere to this question is YES  just one example is the verse 4:43 from sourat a’nissa’ ( the women), it starts by saying men and women are created “from one soul.” So the Koran starts from the assumption of absolute equality in creation.

“what do you think about all violent thing in writen in koran? murder, rape, violence, about men controlling everything women do? “ wow what kind of quran did you read??? bc the quran i read wasn’t like this, it was quite the opposit actually, the principle reason of fighting in Islam is self-defensive  “To those against whom war is made, permission is given (to fight), because they are wronged; and verily, God is most powerful for their aid…If God did not defend one set of people by means of another, then monasteries, churches, synagogues, and mosques, in which the name of God is commemorated in abundant measure, would surely have been destroyed…” (22:39-40)

Further, Muslims are commanded not to be aggressive: “Fight in the cause of God those who fight you, but do not transgress limits; for God loveth not transgressors” (2:190) In addition, when the enemy inclines toward peace, Muslims are commanded to cease hostilities: “But if the enemy incline towards peace, do thou (also) incline towards peace” (8:61). The guiding principle of Islam with respect to non-Muslims is one of tolerance and mutual respect, plain and simple: “God does not forbid you from dealing kindly and justly with those who do not fight you for (your) Faith nor drive you out of your homes: for God loveth those who are just.” (60:8)
now let’s talk about hijab. Muslim society prizes female modesty.  Hijab frees women from being thought of as sexual objects of desire or from being valued for their looks, or body shape rather then their minds and intellect.  No longer slaves to consumerism, hijab liberates women from the need to conform to unrealistic stereotypes and images dictated by the media.  Women wearing hijab have expressed that dressing modestly and covering their hair, minimises sexual harassment in the workplace. The aura of privacy created by hijab is indicative of the great value Islam places upon women. Hijab can be a symbol of piety and it can be a sign of great inner strength and fortitude.  A woman wearing hijab becomes a very visible sign of Islam that’s why,  in the last 30 years hijab has emerged as a sign of Islamic consciousness.  Many women see wearing the hijab as indicative of their desire to be part of an Islamic revival, especially in countries where the practice of Islam is discouraged or even forbidden.

whew that was long, sorry if i made many mistakes english isn’t my first language (not even 2nd), thank you.

I’m gay and I know there was a time when serious respectable adults - doctors, presidents, prime ministers, queens, kings, scientists, parents, police officers, therapists - were in total agreement with utter certainty that to allow people like me to live openly and freely would mean the molesting of children, the destruction of families, the crumbling of armies, the annihilation of manhood, womanhood and all that is decent. Society itself would perish if we got equal rights.

Well, we’ve pretty much got equal rights and.. check it out. Nothing bad happened. Nothing. Turned out society could accept us and our differences and absolutely everything would be absolutely fine for everyone, if not better. All that drama, all that hell you put us and yourselves through? It was for nothing. What a waste of energy and lives and tears and humanity all those years were ay?

That’s why it is so funny for me that the exact same sorta people that made such a stink about us queers are now doing it about Muslims. With utter conviction they are utterly convinced that society will topple if we accept Muslims living among us (like they haven’t already been for yonks).

And if you honestly think people didn’t believe with all their heart that us gays were as big a society-destroying force as Muslims are being touted as now, read more queer history.

its kind of disappointing to see the contrast between the no. of posts about sana in comparison to those of isak and even

after yesterdays clip, my dashboard was full of isak and even gifs and posts and when I say full I mean I barely saw anything about sana, despite this being sana’s season

today, the whole clip is based on sana and her feelings of loneliness and I see barely any posts or gifs of sana which is honestly so sad, there’s barely any recognition and attention towards sana which is really disappointing

You know what I’m such a fucking fan of? In the first scene we see Sana have the call to prayer play on her phone and the woman sitting across from her looks at her in disgust. She is clearly uncomfortable with Sana and her religion even though Sana had done literally nothing to make her feel uncomfortable. This scene is juxtaposed with Sana walking in on even and Isak making out and being all cute and coupley. Sana, who society perceives as intolerant and hateful because of her religion doesn’t bat an eye at their affection. I absolutely LOVE what this says about how society views muslims vs. how they actually are, not just a gross stereotype. The white, westernized women is way more intolerant than the religious Muslim girl. I fucking see u Julie. So brilliant.

Controversial aspect of his heritage? Ali being a muslim is controversial, how? The word you’re looking for is inconvenient. The media doesn’t want to promote anything positive about Islam, not when it went through all the trouble to portray Islam as a synonym to terrorism. Acts of terrorism are just that.. terrorism. Islam clearly, absolutely prohibits such acts. When a white guy shoots dozens of kids in a school, the news says ‘an armed guy.’ Period. But if it’s a muslim, the media goes above and beyond to emphasize on their religion. Why?

  • someone: i want penetrator chris as the next main
  • me, an intellectual: well, we have even, who has a mental illness and it would be great to have this shown and explored in greater detail since it seems like he’s not dealing with it very well. or sana, who is a muslim girl in a society that has a lot of prejudices against islam in general, and especially in the refugee crisis right now and she has to deal with islamophobia on a daily basis. or we have vilde, but let’s be real, i want her for season 6 so that we can have her explore her sexuality and during russefeiring

“Christianity cheated us out of the fruits of ancient culture, and later it cheated us a second time out of the fruits of Islamic culture. The wonderful world of Moorish Spain is fundamentally more closely related to us and speaks more clearly to us and our senses and tastes than Rome or Greece.”

—F. Nietzsche, The Anti-Christ, §60 (edited excerpt).

Sana's season could not have a better timing

Sana’s season is gonna bring up the importance of islamophobia and how that in today’s society muslims are blamed when terror attacks happen and how we judge people too quickly and so this could not have a better timing.

Yesterday a terror attack happened in my country, Sweden, and as we know other recent attacks in other countries has happened and I just feel like this season is gonna have such an important role cause so many people watch it from all over the world and you never know who might open their eyes after this season. BRING IT SANA 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻
