Do you have any idea what you’ve done to that child?
I know you were a child yourself…but you didn’t stop at that…you continued your malice attacks but in a different form…do you have any idea about the harm you have caused him?
You have changed a human being forever!
Your cruel remarks…your bigoty…your teasing, bullying and discrimination deformed him and many others like him.
Did you really feel superior because you have the religion of the majority? does being born to a family from a certain religion make you better than every other human being different from yourself?
Who taught you that?
Which malignant call taught you that by being condescending, abusive and mean you get to be better?
Who taught you that by being a monster you benefit your religion? that by refusing any other way you are raising your assets?
And If someone did…How could you believe them?
have you ever felt any kind of regret that you’ve cornered the few different kids u had in class?
Was the jokes really that good?
Did you really and wholeheartedly laugh?
Or was it just a sick sadistic feeling you had enjoying hurting others…have you ever experienced being out numbered…ganged…hit…mocked at…just because your parents were of a different religion than the masses?
I guess you haven’t…well, I’ll tell you what would have happened…
You would have trembled like a leaf in a storm if some kid would pin you to the wall and keep insulting your religion….you would have been reluctant to tell freely about your beliefs, as you’ll feel the punch in the stomach before even getting touched…
The looks would have burned your forehead….
You would have always worn a huge watch to cover the little blue cross tattooed to your wrist/would have uncovered your hair/ shaved your beard/ stopped praying in the Masjid/forgotten about the church/neglected the temple/hidden the songs/turned off the Quran…
you would have been obliged to use religious accustomed sentences that were NOT from your religion just to win the approval of the masses…
you would have never felt free to act as you wished…you would have chosen who to LOVE, as they must be like you or else…. and by far that must be the cruelest act against one’s heart…to pick…LOVE.
you would have changed lanes, switched streets and felt like shrinking every time BIG RELIGIOUSLY DRESSED men walked your way or gave you the gaze.
You would have been someone shaky…hesitant…worrying…paranoied at times…
maybe hostile…sometimes violant…ouyt of fear…opression and prejudice.
Dear Racist…Dear Religionist…Dear Sexist…Dear unfair cruel arrogant condescending human being…I want to surprise you,
Allah created a universe in which he created millions of wonders and above them all was humanity…to know him…to love him…to obey him…NO ONE can identify the way…we are left to choose and we are expected to take full responsiblity…Allah is the creator, the fair judge.
Look up to the open skies…look afar to the endless waters…he wanted the world this way…open…free…and to him we shall return and each shall handle his deeds…no one else…
Not you…and Never me!
