There is nothing more American for American Muslims to do at this time than to simply continue remaining as Muslims.
This country was founded by those who escaped religious persecution and insisted on practicing their deen in the manner in which they deemed important.
They did not compromise, apologize or feel they had to change their beliefs and actions in order to thrive.
In Good Company
This country’s history is also filled with many religious groups who faithfully maintained their religious practices and beliefs.
Compromising is Un-American
It is not only unbecoming for American Muslims to compromise their Islam, but it is the most un-American thing they can do right now.”
