Fuck you Nidal.
You are an abomination to Islam. You hijacked a beautiful faith in the name of your petty hate. It's not the fault of the army that you couldn't find a wife. It's not the fault of the army that you chose to live next to some dumb ass redneck who thought it would be funny to vandalize your car. You live in Texas. News flash ar-tard, the south isn't exactly known for its contemporary values of pluralism and tolerance.
I went to my old mosque last night. I prayed next to an old man who had fled the violence of his African homeland Eretrea. His body could not stop shaking from the onset of his Parkinson's. Yet somehow this man found the strength to kneel before God repeatedly in humility. He prostrated over and over again until he could no longer stand. Outside the mosque, little kids were cheerfully playing soccer and seeing who could twirl the most times without falling over. Mothers were gossiping about the latest attempt of Mahmoud to find a wife. Mahmoud, a young muslim in his early 20's, stood nervously in the parking lot waiting to see if Aisha's father would allow him to come over for family dinner.
You fucked over this old man. You fucked over the kids. You fucked over Mahmoud. You fucked over every muslim american. Americans who just want to practice their faith in peace. Americans who want to contribute to this great country and make it a better place than it already is. Americans who want the islamic values of compassion, mercy, and forgiveness extended to all.
Islam does not preach violence. Islam does not preach hate. Islam does not preach anger.
A man once asked the founder of your faith for practical advice he could apply to his life. Prophet Muhammad said: Do not be angry. The man repeated the question several times and The Prophet repeatedly replied, "Do not be angry."
Why didn't you heed the words of your Prophet? Since birth, you were instilled with Muhammad's own words of compassion towards humanity.
"Do you love your creator? Love your fellow-beings first."
"That person is not a perfect Muslim who eats his fill and leaves his neighbors hungry"
"Feed the hungry and visit a sick person, and free the captive, if he be unjustly confined. Assist any person oppressed whether muslim or non-muslim"
"Shall I not inform you of a better act than fasting alms, and prayers? Making peace between one another: enmity and malice tear up heavenly rewards by the roots."
"When the bier of anyone passes by whether Jew, Christian, or Muslim, rise to your feet."
"Kindness is a mark of faith: and whoever does not have kindness does not have faith."
"The ink of the scholar is more holy than the blood of the martyr."
And so on.
However, you decided to listen to your hate rather than your faith. You decided to embrace evil rather than righteousness. I am glad you lived Nidal. You now have time to realize how stupendously unislamic your actions were. You now have time to actually pick up a Quran and read it before they rightly give you the needle.- Samir
