Muslims: don’t be ashamed of your religion. 1) it is the only religion (submission to God’s will) that is acceptable to God, 2) it is a mercy for humanity, 3) it is the religion of the best of mankind (Noah, Abraham, Moses, Jesus, Muhammad, peace be upon them all, and others).
So don’t feel ashamed of your hijab. don’t feel ashamed of praying in public. Don’t feel ashamed of saying “la illaha illa Allah, Muhammadan rasool Allah” (“there is no deity worthy of worship except Allah, and Muhammad is the messenger of Allah”)> it is this very shame of our Islam that keeps us from living it, and therefore, changing the world (through it).
o Allah, let us be ambassadors of Your religion, here on earth, and let us feel proud of what we believe. (for it is surely only the best of beliefs). ameeen.
