How humiliating would it be to know that your flight is canceled because people think you’re a terrorist. They’re proof? You waved at your friend, and you flushed the toilet twice. Subhana Allah. Would this happen to anyone other than a Muslim in this day and age? Would they ground the plane if an African American person did the same thing? What about a Buddhist? A Hindu perhaps? A European American?
Should you be interrogated by the FBI for being Muslim? There are literally mass shooters running around, but interrogating a regular Muslim is obviously more important. Hundreds of thousands of people die every year from alcohol, drugs, cigarettes, processed foods, but of course none of that is important. What’s important is talking to this Muslim for using the bathroom on a plane. Subhana Allah.
I remember when I was interrogated before my flight as well. One of the questions they asked me was if I went to the Mesjid while I was living in the middle east. I felt like asking him, “are you serious?? I’m Muslim aren’t I? Is that even worth asking?” It’s like asking a taxi driver, if he drives cars. Or asking a dentist if he sees a lot of teeth. All that government money is spent paying “professional” interrogators on the art of asking silly questions. Unfortunately you better answer their questions real carefully or else you might find yourself on a one way ticket to Guantanamo Bay. May Allah help the brothers who are still there till this day, without any trial, without any evidence of a crime they’ve committed. Where is the justice?
I hope you all have a better day than the two brothers who were involved in this mess, and the thousands of brothers and sisters that must be going through this yearly.
Help me to make more Islamic material for our ummah. Check out my books for Muslim children! Jazaka Allahu khayran!
