As-salāmu ʿalaykum brothers & sisters Recently, I've seen a few posts wherein people have mentioned that there is a difference between Islam & "Islamic/Arabic culture". Namely, that there are practices and customs that people at the masjid or in the wider ummah might insist that I take up as a recent revert- but that have nothing to do with Islam or anything that the Prophet (صلى الله عليه وآله وسلم) encouraged. I understand the idea, because Christianity (especially evangelicalism) has this phenomenon as well, but I can and already know those. As I am a "baby Muslim"/new revert, I
Salam Alaikom! Marhaba! Hej på er! Hi all! I've encountered some nationality problems! I'm fine with being mixed but what I'm not fine with is how people react because of it.

Those guys are frickn ninjas!!!!! And they are so smart and cool.(not saying everyone else isnt cool, but Asian cool is a different kind of cool)
This is an interesting video i came across from Baba Ali: "One thing i always find funny is how people take so much pride in things such as race and color. But what did we do to be proud of it? You can "oh I was born in this country!!!!" , but why do think you deserve credit for that... others say "I was born into this family"... but what did you do to be proud of those achievements of your culture or ethnicity?
