A muslim is my daughter, my lawyer, my roommate, my favourite prof, my bus driver, my best friend. They laugh and cry, they write and play, they apologise and say thank you, they fall and grow and pray and do almost everything just like us. Sometimes they have good days and sometimes they have bad days, some love us and some hate us. They speak every language, and every dialect. They are mixed with every race and may be part of your genome. They are fat and make fun of thin people or are thin and make fun of fat people, or tall or short or masculine or feminine. They have pets, but believe dogs should be outside. They eat samoosas and duck a l'orange. They are humans and souls just like us and the only difference is they believe in something that may be strange to us, but heck we are strange to others too, so blessed are the strangers!
Doug Stanley: I dont believe in anything.
Muhammad Abdul Ali: A Muslim is one who accepts God as the truth, a truth delivered by His Prophets.
Paul Bishop: I believe in Jesus as my Savior.
Muhammad Abdul Ali: Jesus peace be upon him. Mind passing the potatoes?
Paul Bishop: Sorry, I meant Jesus as God the son of God, not a prophet. We differ on that.
Muhammad Abdul Ali: We sure do! But this steak is delicious! You should try some!
Doug Stanley: Agreed. Deliciousness.
