Send love to your Muslim family.
Stand guard against hate.
Speak up regarding the pain and trauma of others.
& even if you do not, remember that this home of mine will still remain open to you, with the hope that I might soften your heart.
Inna lillaah wa inna illayhi raji3oon.
Today, I am grateful for:
1. Being Muslim.
2. The kindness and love which is Islam, and which would counsel me to soften, rather than to hate.
3. Every single one of you who sent a message of solidarity. Mosques are the easy and obvious target; ours is not the only family under threat – ally yourselves with our Sikh, Hindu, and brown brothers and sisters. Ally yourselves with anyone ‘not White enough’ to warrant the hate of the White Supremacist.
