2016's Bad News by featherpencil

The Presidential Election has just been officialized and announced today. Albeit not being in America, my heart goes out to everyone who is there. I may not be a muslim anymore, but my heart goes out to the muslim brothers and sisters there. It is with such fear and tragedy that so many people have revealed their true colours. As with Brexit, I think it will be a no-brainer that hate crimes will rise, and I plead to you, everyone, to be safe, if you are now in such a situation. Please do whatever you can to be safe. Your life matters more than anything else. I have seen many misleading advices from (unfortunately) popular muslim social media scholars, and I want to tell you now that whatever it is, remember that Allah is more forgiving than he is angry. Remember that whatever you do to stay alive is WAY more important than your pride and symbol as a muslim. Remember that the prophet led a secret religion for three years. Remember that S. Sumayya r.a's son lied of not being a muslim to protect himself, and that the Prophet pbuh said that he did the right thing. Remember that if you have to hide your identity as a muslim to protect yourself, and your family, it is far more important than being prideful. I don't know how many of the people who read this are muslims, and I especially don't know how many of you live in America, but I just hope that everyone stay safe. The results have just shown the ugly side of what the people there can be, and I can't express just how scared I am of the rise in hate crimes there. Please, stay safe. xxx
