Muslims Are...

Today we are writing for closure,
In order to remind Facebook Ninjas that Osama Bin Laden,
And ISIS have not come any closer to representing ISLAM,
During this time a self-proclaimed patriot has begun researching,
In hopes of signing a multi-million dollar book deal,
So, I typed into google,
‘Why are Muslims so…”
Modest, compassionate, and clean,
Charitable, stereotyped, and religious,
My computer screen propagated false leads,
Why are Muslims so…
It is because of the individuals defending ignorance,
Behind a computer screen,
Political entities banning a woman’s right to cover,
(cough, cough, France)
A short lesson must be conducted,
Often left out from the plethora of verses,
By Your Not My Daddy Baghdaddi,
And Your Not Boys anymore Al Shabaab,
“You cannot guide those you would like to but God guides those He wills.
He has best knowledge of the guided.” (28:56)
While misrepresentation appears to be coincidental,
How about the White woman who crosses the street,
When she spots a bearded man walking her direction,
He had just come from the mosque after crying in prostration,
Yet Uncle Sam’s children believe he was drawing up 9/17 plans,
My request to those who cause harm would be to do more research,
Don’t you find it strange that no matter how many women you trip,
Or scarfs you rip from the heads of mothers,
Billy Clubs and Pitchforks are not raised,
We have been commanded to treat Jews and Christians as brothers,
People of the book,
With justice, love, and compassion,
“God does not forbid you from being good to those who have not fought you in the religion or driven you from your homes, or from being just towards them. God loves those who are just.” (Surat al-Mumtahana, Verse 8)
Not every Jew is a Zionist,
Nor is every Muslim a Terrorist,
Instead of big noses and penny pushers,
We must examine the similarities,
A Jewish girl and A Muslim girl,
May watch the same movies,
Been asked the same questions,
Where did you meet him? Is he (insert faith)?
We have been called to compete,
Not in disgusting behavior but in good deeds,
“We have appointed a law and a practice for every one of you.
Had God willed, He would have made you a single community,
But He wanted to test you regarding what has come to you.
So compete with each other in doing good.
Every one of you will return to God,
He will inform you regarding the things about which you differed.”
(Surat al-Ma’ida, 48)
This poem has been written for KKK members and racists,
Poor White folks who were tricked into holding hands with Rich White folks,
This poem has been written for the next Jihadi John,
Your dull blade cannot compete with love,
Ibn Abbas reported: The Prophet, peace and blessings be upon him, said,
“He is not a believer whose stomach is filled while the neighbor to his side goes hungry.”
