“I feel incredibly blessed to have met so many non-Muslims here on campus who are so understanding and willing to learn. My good friend and former coworker here at UA, Andrew, is a Christian and he always used to text me everyday asking me questions about Islam. He learned the Arabic alphabet and some useful Arabic phrases too. I gave him an English Quran, and he's read a good bit of it so far. He greets me Assalaamu Alaikum (Peace be upon you) every time. It just makes me feel hopeful; I know there are many more inquisitive people like him just waiting for a chance to meet an average Muslim like myself and have those kind of dialogues or get those kind of resources rather than believe everything the media tells them.”
