Mashallah this was a great article. This article refers to me. There are only 3 other Muslims in my school. My brother, and 2 sisters. I really want more Muslims in my community but there is a few. I can sense that there will be more Muslims inshallah. Salaam

Comment:i am an 8th grade student and the only one who wearz a hijab in my grade level...i hardly kno any muslim kids around my neighborhood or skool...it is a lil embarrassing when everyone asks me questions...i do feel seperate from everyone else at times n that makes me feel bad until i realize that im crazy for thinking that...im not like everyone else bcuz im muslim and wear the hijab but bcuz of who i am inside...wearing my hijab has really lead me to self-discovery and mayb even self-actualization... it has done nothing but make me a stronger person and muslim...i kno that my hijab does not define me...it just adds to my character....ur article was great...it gives me hope that i will fit in someday without having to change who i am...

Comment:wow! that totally reminded me of myself. Last year i was the only one who wore a scarf, it was difficult at times, answering all the questions people had. I am in middle school now and there are a few other people who wear it to and it makes life more relaxing and easier. Most of the other girls who wear dont even wear it right all their hair shows. That is just a disgrace to our muslim race. anyways i loved that you posted that. c yaaaa!!! Salaamz

I would like to say that I enjoyed your article very much. It's great to see Muslims being united despite their differences whether it be ethnic or anything else. Going to an Islamic School, I feel as if I belong, really truly belong. It's a great environment because I can interact with my classmates and with my teachers. But however, even in an all-Islamic Schools, there are still many, many Muslims who are unwilling to interact with their Muslim friends and tend to like hanging out with the kuffar. To them, it is pathetic or 'being too Islamic' to implement the principles and morals that Islam provides us with in our lives. They do not want to appear to Islamic for fear of being neglected by the kuffar. How do I know this? Well it is because I have been around these type of people for my third year running. But besides that, I would like to say Masha'Allah for actually realizing our main weakness and actually having the guts to say it out loud. I give you my salaam and best wishes for your life here and in the akhira.
