Muslim
The word I chose to write my argumentative essay is “Muslim.” It means a person who follows the religion of Islam. Islam began in Mecca and Media at the start of seventh century. According to history of Islam-Wikipedia, The Prophet Muhammad introduced Islam in 610 A.D. after receiving what he maintained to be “divine revelations.” Muhammad imposed the Quran, which is the holy book of Islam. However, Muslim is used differently in different communities. People in the United States, especially most of the white people are thinking that Muslim people are terrorists. Nevertheless, Muslim people are not the people who kill others. They are just a people who follow their religion’s

As a young experienced man who was living in East Africa surrounded by Muslim people, I don’t think Muslim people are extremist. They were very kind people because I have seen them helping others, who are sick and giving food to the poor people, who didn’t have enough money to buy food. Thus, from what I’ve seen in the past four years in Ethiopia, most Muslim people are not what many white people, who are living in the United States of America think. According to CNN News, Barack Obama says, “ISIS is not Islamic, no religion condones the killing of innocents.” This even shows that our former president doesn’t believe that Muslim people are terrorists. Likewise, what Barack Obama mentioned in his speech to convey his argument is what most of us could have agreed 100% because I believe that there is no religion who accepts the killing of innocent people. In addition, according to ABC News, Abdullah of Saudi Arabia used pathos to convey his argument when he said, “Muslims are not bloodthirsty people. Islam is a religion of peace that forbids the killing of the innocent. Islam also accepts the Prophets, whether those prophets are Mohammed, God's peace and blessing be upon Him, or Moses or the other prophets of the Books.” This shows that most Muslim people are just following their religion’s regulations, which refuses to allow killing people. When Donald Trump said Muslims are terrorists …show more content…
According to the media, Donald Trump also called for “Travel Ban” for Muslims because he believes that ISIS is considered Muslim, so those terrorist groups which are called ISIS will come to the United States of America if we allowed Muslims to infiltrate to the United States of America. However, ISIS is not Islamic. ISIS has nothing to do with Muslim because ISIS is a group who’s killed many innocent people. Furthermore, since there is no religion who disregards the killing of many innocent people, then Muslim people are not terrorists. In addition, I believe that Muslim people are not terrorists because I have many Muslim friends who are very unlike what the media or about half of the white people are talking about. To sum up, I will use one of Muhammad Ali’s quote which is, “Terrorists are not following Islam. Killing people and blowing up people and dropping bombs in places and all this is not the way to spread the word of Islam. So, people realize now that all Muslims are not terrorist.” All in all, most Muslim people are not killing innocent people. Thus, if they are not terrorists, then they shouldn’t be considered ISIS because we all know that ISIS is a coordinated group who killed many innocent

    Again, no one should ever be denied protection or be viewed under a false stereotype. The government says they banned the chosen seven Muslim countries to protect Americans and the U.S., but the ban wouldn't and doesn't benefit the country completely. In conclusion, everyone should work together and stand up for the several groups of people who are discriminated against, plus save their…

    Many Muslims in the country are not responsible for the violence or attacks happening in the country. There is a saying that goes “Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslims.” This is, by far, a true statement. Ahmed Abu Ali is a very educated man. He got caught for terrorist actions or for future terrorist actions. He was conspiring on assassinating George W. Bush.…

    Although we consider ourselves to be a cultural melting pot, and our constitutional rights give all citizens the comfort of religious freedom; this is largely a theoretical idea rather than the truth. One particularly concerning example is the religion of Islam and the Muslim community face, years of marginalization and stigmatization have contributed to a significant amount of Muslim Americans feeling uncomfortable in their home country. That being said, the typical American’s idea of freedom of religion only extends as far as their comfort level and is primarily based on stereotypical perceptions of the average ‘Muslim’ person, media and other mainstream sources only further misguide our perceptions of what the religion of Islam is actually…

    Too often I hear those who argue against Islam plea "Not all Muslims are terrorists but all terrorists are Muslims. The stupidity, inaccuracy, foolishness and idiocy of this seems rather surprising to me. Organisations like the 'KKK ' are never referred to as terrorists, you never see Irish People 's Liberation being referred to as terrorists, you never see Anders Behring Breivik being associated with terrorism or Army of God or Adam Lanza. It is rather saddening while researching this topic an article caught my attention. Adam Lanza was involved in an article of the Dailymail and headline was 'Adam Lanza hated his mother he shot dead because he thought 'she loved the students at Sandy Hook more than him '.…

    We can’t be a nation known to be the land of the free if we don’t obey the amendments that were made by our founding fathers. Muslims weren’t the ones who started a war against the nation, it’s radical organizations that oppose the United States were the ones who started war against them and decided to call themselves Muslims. We should stand as a whole nation and look for the real enemies of this country and do not befriend the Islamic nation.

    The face of terror is not the true face of Islam; however, Islam represents peace and does not condone aggressive warfare. The Qur 'an, Islam 's sacred scripture, declares, "Whoever kills an innocent human being, it shall be as if he has killed all mankind, and whosoever saves the life of one, it shall be as if he had saved the life of all mankind." The verse from the Qur 'an stresses that killing an innocent human being is not acceptable and this indicates that Qur 'an does not approve with terrorism, which often involves sacrificing numerous innocent people 's lives. Indeed, Muslim authorities advocate that certain terrorists deceive Islam as the reason of their terror attacks and these spurious statements are distortion of their religion and deeply offensive to them. It is not only Muslims who claim that Islam is the religion that encourages peace; for…

    When Colin Powell was asked about the response to “Obama is a Muslim”, he replied with: “The correct answer is: He is not a Muslim, he’s a Christian, He’s always been a Christian. But the really right answer is ‘what if he is? Is there something wrong with being a Muslim in this country?’ Answer is, no that’s not America. Is there something wrong with some seven-year-old American Muslim kid believing that he or she could be president? Yet I have heard senior members of my own party drop the suggestion: ‘He’s a Muslim and he might be associated with terrorists.’ This is not the way we should be doing it in America.” Colin Powell, in this issue, would be the protagonist of the whole situation.…

    In his novel, Steyn says, “Of course not all Muslims support terrorists, though enough of them share their basic objectives: the wish to live under Islamic law in Europe and North America” (cite). These claims made by Steyn, though initially are based on facts as he cites statistics, are substantially harmful claims as he insinuates that he is referring to all Muslims as a whole, not a small, extremist…

    Some feel as the government is becoming anti-Christian yet they do not speak for people who are anti-Semitic and anti-Muslims. Growing up, I was taught America was not built on religion but as I have taken this course, I’ve come to realize secondary education history books undermine the effects religion truly had in shaping the government thus creating the myth that America is truly free from religious political involvement simply because the separation of church and state in the Constitution. Why does religion matter so much in politics? Because it was built on it. “Most American Founders recognized as a force with the potential to both enhance and undermine political stability” (Wald 70).…

    American Muslims are stereotypically assumed to be a monolithic group by many Americans, and are expected to act and behave in the same way despite big differences in their ethnic backgrounds. This assumption is justified by their perception that there is only one kind of Islam and what fundamental Muslims believe in is universal Islam because they consider the Quran as a rule book to live by without any questions or arguments. In reality, however, this is not always true, as there are divergent views of Islam which often make it difficult for people who have faith in Islam but have some unanswered questions to accept the idea of universal Islam outright. The confusion faced by such Muslims is explicitly portrayed in the book, The Journey to…
