I all the time hear and read bad things about Muslim people and it slowly starts pissing me off. People who bark the loudest have never even met a Muslim in their life!
I’ve met a lot of them online and in real life and beside few exceptions (which happen in every nationality) I love them truly!
Everyone keeps saying about bad things so I decided to state some good things I like about them.
1. They respect women
Despite all stereotypes, most of Muslim I’ve met are very respectful and gentle. They don’t treat women as things just as diamonds.
2. They cherish family values
I envy them their relationship with family. They are close even with their grandmother’s brother’s wife’s cousin’s son. They celebrate important holidays with a bunch of people. We, as Western community, are lucky if we know our closest family connections.
3. They believe in the same things
They believe in the same God, the same values and they are humans just like us. The only difference is religion, which isn’t that much different from Christianity.
4. They are great friends
Most of my friends are Muslim. They are sweet and kind people, they care about others and they are really helpful.
These are my personal opinions based on many years of getting to know a lot of Muslim people. I judged them by their personality and behaviour not religion or country they were born in.
Of course I’ve also met assholes and idiots, but they happen everywhere not only in Arab countries. Bad people are everywhere.
People who talk bad about Muslims should look around their own neighbourhoud. How many women are killed by their husbands or boyfriends in Muslim countries and how many in America or Europe? How many people are killed in massive homicide by sociopath in America and how many in Middle East?
Before people judge other religions or nation they should look at their own first. I can’t believe some people are so prejudiced to humans who they don’t even know and all information about them they got in TV.
I hope it will finally soon, because everyday I want to scream to those idiots to finally shut up. They know nothing and they talk bullshits. I love Muslim people and I doubt I’ll ever stop.
