Thoughts from my Religion Class

My thoughts during class aren’t that different than other students present in the class, because despite all our differences we are all still average students attending Rutgers University who to an extent, think of the same things. But what goes on in my mind and the minds of some other Muslims during our religion class are thoughts such as…:

1) Where did he get his information from…?

3) Only knows only the ‘American version’ or meaning of jihad, aka, the “holy war,” when it’s much more than that.

4) Emphasizes the punishments of Hell and casually laughs at it, making a few students laugh with him, without realizing that is is not a joke bruh…

9) When the professor jokes about a ‘current day’ Muslim doctor believing in the punishment of the grave and how ‘Medieval’ and ‘backwards’ it is and you think…

(Quick side note: none of these are to be taken to heart or are meant to offend in any way. The point was to have some light humor. It’s the job of us Muslims to clear the misconceptions that are present in the everyday world. By having sweet behavior and simple etiquette, we can maybe win the hearts of our fellow non-Muslim peers and professors. So remember to smile and be really friendly because dawah is given everyday, no matter if we are in the classroom, office, or a restaurant!)
