It is the fact that there are 1.6 billion Muslim followers.As we all know 1.6 billion people believe in the god Allah as I do. If you ask me who I believe and who am I? My answer might be different in different places. It is different because of the simple line “ I am a Muslim man”. The question that who am I still play around me. Some might call me a terrorist, some might recognize me as a religious genocide, and some might view me as a hater because I am a Muslim man. It is most interesting to say that those people don’t know me because I am a Muslim man.

 

Muslim? What? I know it is bad for you to talk with me and know that I am a Muslim man. It is even worse that when you ask me something I reply the answer you need and correctly answer. When you ask me: do you know Yahweh, I reply that I am a Jew; do you know Jesus, I reply that I am a Christian; do you know Guru Gobind Singh, I reply that I am a Sikh. You even ask me do you know Buddha, Vishnu and so on, I reply that I am Buddhist, Hindu and so on... I reply simply because I am a Muslim man. Then you even ask me do you know Allah, I smile and reply I am a Muslim man. You get a heart attack that you are talking to a crazy Muslim man. But on the other hand, I didn’t get a heart attack that talking to you Hindus, Buddhists, Sikhs, Christians, and Jews and so on... I didn’t get a heart attack because I know who you are and I the Muslim man. I know what a religion is, not like as you known.

 

Religions? Crazy? You feel awkward to talking with me because I reply that I am for anything you ask about different religions. This might make you think I am telling you I am…….. Sikhs…..and so on to kill you. Killing you, that is not true because I am a Muslim man. Your thought is right that some of the radical Muslim people like “ISIS” kill your people and other because simply they aren’t Muslim who true followers are. Those killers don’t have the same view as I do because I am a Muslim man. You even ask me why I go to Church, Temple, and Stupa and so on… I reply I am a Muslim man with a beautiful smile.

 

Religious places? Human? It is a stupid answer that why I go to different religious places. Isn’t it, no not for me because I am a unique person who doesn’t discriminate any religions? At this point you might think I am telling a lie to kill you. That is not true because I am a Muslim man. I know the place that you go to pray that isn’t for people like me but then also I go. The places are also different, ways of praying are different too, but then also I pray same as you do. It is the craziest thing to say that a Muslim man praying in your place. Place where you pray isn’t matched to other people like me. I feel proud to say that I am praying at Church, Temple and so on.. I feel proud simply because I am Muslim man. You get angry at me because I am Muslim man who didn’t tell you I am, unless you ask about Allah. I simply ignore about my believe and say I am Christian……… Hindu…. And so on. You ask me why, why, why am I praying to all gods which is not what my religion view is. At that time I answered that I am a Muslim man.

 

Pray? Why? I know that prays isn’t different, but the ways of praying is different in various religions. This is what makes me to pray in your places. Makes me to pray because I am a Muslim man. I feel proud of where ever I pray because I see Allah in every place. You ask me why you pray to Jesus, Yahweh, Vishnu and so on.. I smile big and reply I am Muslim man. You get confused and ask me again same question. This time I reply that I see Allah in every god. You like what? What? What is going on? OMG….

 

God? Oh! God! It is funny to say that I see Allah in every god. Do you know why? I guess you don’t know, it is because God isn’t like a different group of people. The word “god” is only one. You may see uncomfortable when I say your god is mine and mine is you're simply because god is one. This is not what I am telling you. God is one, but a path to reach toward God is different paths. Different paths are what we all called “Religions”. When there is only one god but paths are different, I follow the different paths. Following different paths let me to pray in your holy place because I see the god waving hand towards me. I pray because I am a Muslim man. I even touch your holy book when I visit the place where you pray, not only that I read your holy book.

 

Holy book? Touch & pray? Isn’t it awkward to you when I am telling you that I the Muslim man touch your holy book and reading it? When I am reading your holy book, you even ask me who I am. I reply, I am Christian…….. Hindus….. and so on because I am a Muslim man. The book what I am reading (Quran) is different the holy book you are reading. But then also I read whole different holy book that is different than Quran. I know you didn’t read other holy book expect your holy book. I read because I am a Muslim man. I read due to the facts all holy book have same ideas: do not kill, love younger, respect elders and so on… I go to your holy place, read your holy book, even pray to your god because I am a Muslim man. I do it not because I am going to kill you and destroy your community. I did because I feel the pride of my religion Islam. Keep in mind, I am not terrorist because I the Muslim man. I am a Muslim man who hate crime as you do that is only one common with you and me. I am a Muslim man will change the world without violence. I will change the world because I am a Muslim man who knows you and your religions. The only difference with you is that you don’t know me and my religion. I am a change of world because I am a Muslim man. I will change because if I don’t do it who will do it? You who doesn’t know anything besides your religion. I will change because I see Allah in everything and everywhere. I see Allah everywhere….. Everywhere…..
