When you look at Muslim scholar Dalia Mogahed, what do you see: A woman of faith? A scholar, a mom, a sister? Or an oppressed, brainwashed, potential terrorist? In this personal, powerful talk, Mogahed asks us, in this polarizing time, to fight negative perceptions of her faith in the media -- and to choose empathy over prejudice.

proud to be a muslim. truth of portraying muslims as a sign of terrorism, media just knows that because majority don't think like that. 'cause media is just putting that feelings in to people's mind. I watched the video and i felt the people were sitting and there and just listening with peace 'cause they want peace but media and some hypocratic people don't wanna that and Indian Media is actually leading the team ahead of american media.
I'm just wanna say stop all this ugly blames and shameless working 'cause you are just loosing your honor and respect and now people knows that.
I guess I should speak on what is it like growing up among Muslims? ??
Normal Muslims ofcourse are not terrorist but are very bold and way too fighters, don't even abide by the rules most of the times at least not all but most of them 80%. From where I come. I think we as a human being we should abide by the law of the country we r in..
Religion is opium for the mass. It's human invenction to control people. And people belive it because they want reach their 'havens' but come one, yiu're arguing which religion is better and you're ignoring the fact that any religion is good. Thank you goodbye.
Mashallah Sister/ it is a late comment but as a dutch muslim hijabi girl i understand it, people assum that i can't speak good dutch but i do, and also they think that im a scary person to talk to.. but i've met a lot of good people who aren't muslim but still are happy because im a muslim./ (sorry for my bad english)
11 Eylül abd'nin Müslümanların terörist olduğunu algısı oluşturmak için; Afganistan,Irak ve diğer Müslüman ülkelere saldırmak için; ortadoğu'ya şekil vermek ve israil'in sınırlarını genişletmek için; dünyada Müslümanlara karşı nefret uyandırmak için... vesaire...kendi tezgahladığı oyundan başkası değildir.abd tıpkı diğer terör örgütleri gibi bu terör örgütlerini kurup,büyütüp ,besleyip sonra kullanarak en sonunda çöpe atıyor.Orta Doğudaki birçok terör örgütü istikrarsızlaştırma politikası adına kullanılan maşalardan başka bir şey değildir hepsinin menşei abd ve israil'dir...
I was a Muslim. But now I dont have any religion. Whatever Islam is not for me. I respect them and this woman. But I think heijap is injustice. There is no gender equality in Islam. Why the woman have to do this?? What about mans??
Its the thing I'm tryanna tell to other ppl bout Muslims. U r perfect❤️ firstly these terrorists just looking like a Muslim and u guess they're Muslim but there's thing u missed, we also don't like them just like u here. That's the point the media always shows u as savaged that's completely wrong. Also it doesn't mean that u see the guy who's bad Muslim and then all the Muslims are bad and terrorist. Pls don't do this anymore u r hurting us by saying things we didn't do. Cause we're not saying Christians are terrorist... With love to all of you...
As an atheist, I think the same when I see a Muslim and a Christian. But I have one argument for this woman. It is a lot easier being a Muslim in America, than in the Middle East. So why do we need to complain.
how is to be a mudslime in america? easy.
In the morning you steal some planes with your foes
Later on you crash em' on some buildings killing many innocent people
then your remaining friends send some anthrax at the busiest airports.
Isn't it fun to be muslim?
I'm agnostic but very interested of different religions and cultures. (My dream is to study worlds religions and maybe become a religion teacher) I can respect all the religions and islam is one of them too. I hate and get so irritated when people are saying negative stuff and things about muslims and their religion because most of the time they are wrong and they are making assumptions and they are generalizing islam. Of course, there are "bad muslims". But there are also bad christians, hindus etc. However, they are minority.
My one friend is a muslim and some of my relatives have said terrible things about her, i can't believe how unaware and oblivious some people can be. We all are humans and we should respect each others and not label people because of their religions and believes. I really hope more people will understand this and be more tolerant in the future. Thanks.
In a Muslim country you'd be forced to stay at home, uneducated and not be a spokeswoman for Islam. And you have the gall to complain about America? Save it. Better yet, move to any Muslim country of your choice.
I lived in Turkey so I've met and still know many Muslims. In Iran refusing to wear the hijab is also a symbol of liberty- ask Anni Cyrus from Iran. Turkey is different and the hijab is a choice. The question I do have and I hope you'd be honest with me- do you believe sharia law should be the highest law? Dr. Zudhi Jassar from The American Islamic forum for Democracy is a Muslim I respect.
I’m not religious nor do I think I ever will be, but I love the ideals of putting brains and personality before beauty and what the hijab represents. This was a wonderful talk and I with her all the happiness the world can give her
For a long time I had this childish imagination: the heaven is divided by gods. Those who believe in Jesus go to his realm; those who follow Buddha’s teachings go to his kingdom; those who attack others’ religions are not accepted by any of the gods.
Killsocialmedia I don’t think the point of religions is to be true. It is to teach people values like love, respect, and gratitude (that you probably don’t have judging by the comment). Nobody has personally seen any characters from the Bible, so in a way Christianity is as untruthful as any cults that you might define. If some beliefs are untruthful and teach people the wrong way to live, they shouldn’t be considered religion to begin with.
The Qur'an has mentioned the word "Kill" in more than 100 sentence
So at least one of them could be understood wrongly
That's why ISIS are being terrorists
Currently they're not just killing to make Islam looks a terrorism religion, but they're Killing cuz they believe that they are doing the right thing and God will reward them.
I've talked with many people work with ISIS
They all have the same believe that God will reward you if you kill who don't believe in Islam
I want you to know that I'm open-minded and I'll accept all your options and points of view
Teşekkürler bu konuşma için . Ben de umarım bir gün sizin gibi Müslümanlığı yanlış bilen insanlara doğrusunu gosterebilirim. Lütfen hiç kimse bir dini insanlar uzerinden yargilamasin çünkü her insan dinini doğru yasamayabilir . İnşallah bu ayrimci düşünce kırılabilir çünkü nasıl onlar müslüman bir ülkeye gelmekten cekiniyorlarsa biz de cekiniyoruz oraya gitmekten, buna birilerinin dur demesi lazım emeğiniz için teşekkürler 💖
Oh and what about the violence in the passages of the Quran that muslims conveniently ignore? Such as the cutting off of fingertips + ruthlessness against nonbelievers, the utter perversion in having multiple wives and 72 virgins in heaven but preaching modesty (absolute hypocrisy) while their prophet is a pedophile who lusts amongst women including adultery, as shown with Zayed's wife? A prophet who has a total of 11 wives.... Muslims don't even know their religion. They are born into it, taught some generic quotes in their mosque, and live their lives calling themselves muslims. This religion especially is a cancer.
If only muslims cared as much about the violence towards non-muslims and women in the Middle East, or the culture that Islam leads to such as female genital mutilation and forcing of the hijab, as much as they care about their reputations on their 'peaceful religion.' Sorry but I don't feel sorry for them at all. I've heard of MANY cases of Muslim men marrying western women with the promise of freedom and their ability to practice christianity and then they force hijab them. They come to western countries and want to change the laws such as allowing the niqab but if we go to their countries, we are to abide by their oppressive culture. Even Europe is feeling the burn of Islam as they try to take over the culture, see London + France. They act like they are naked without their hijab. Why should this foolishness be tolerated?
i got so angry watching this i can not believe how much people abuse Muslim i m Muslim to and i am proud to be one and every person who abuses Muslim should be ashamed because they are human like everyone else they are human like Christians , Hindu so they can not take advantage of them. Muslim is the 2nd biggest religion 23% of Muslim live on Earth and most of them live in America. Get rid of them u will lose half of your own population but they will not care.They think if u get rid of Muslims there will be no terrorism but that is not true u can not get rid of terrorism by removing a religion it wont be the end of terrorism.but sister may Allah bless you .
"Muslims are inventors". Name one thing that Muslims have created for the betterment of mankind.......................(crickets) I can name thousands of things they've destroyed and countless innocent humans that they slaughter on a daily basis.
She is just a very rare exception. Most women in Islam have no rights and are treated as breeding machines. Why don't Muslim men wear hijab? Is it only for women? What will happen to a Muslim girl if she stops wearing hijab? - she will be beaten by Sharia police, her family will give up on her and expel her. There is no choice - you will be beaten or at the very least you will lose your family.
Islam is only good for men. The religion oppresses women.
Sophie K first of all, I never claimed that most woman are opressed in Islam. So the whole argument seems irrelevant. Plus I think it's about the choice, if a woman wants to live in an Islamic way, let her and even if a Muslim woman don't want to be part of the Islamic culture, let her too.
My point was modesty doesn't just exist in clothing. It's in behavior too. Modesty is good, but it's not a necessity for life. Mostly these Islam and it's culture mainly targets women on "Modesty" and discriminates the western culture for their sexualization of women (which is ironic). Women are covering their body (with the same mindset of it being sexual tools to attract men) to not attract men. It's the same mindset with different morals.
No one should be opressed, everyone should be allowed to be whatever they want, with knowing the fact that they shouldn't harm anyone in their actions. In Islam, this idea simply never exist, cuz theres the law and all must follow it, if you deny it , you're sinning. A primitive way of life, followed by everyone back then, even by the progressive western society. Now things have changed. That's why a Muslim can freely practice their religion and their culture in western society, and the non-muslims can't do the same in Islamic society.
The hate will be still there for the Muslims by some, but the government aren't go on hating the Muslims like islamic government condemning the western lifestyle and any other lifestyle that contradicts the Islamic faith.
No,say both of us, men and woman doesn't matter.
"Say to the believing men that they should lower their gaze and guard their modesty: that will make for greater purity for them: And Allah is well acquainted with all that they do."
Because Islam say to believing that protect to own.
+Sophie K Sharia police exist in Iran, Sudan and other countries. Probably in your country, there is no such a thing as Sharia police.
Also, by the Sharia or Islamic laws, the witness of two women considered to be equal to the testimony of one man. It doesn't seem fair at all
great speech , you're really a good symbole of a real muslim . Islam has nothing to do with terrorism , a real muslim will never ever hurt other people no matter what they believe in . Thanks Dalia , I am really proud of being a muslim whenever I see a Muslim who really is a Muslim whenever they are .I am a muslim and I am extremely proud of being a muslim , I wish that all muslims who are in foreign countries act like you by showing to the people real Islam .Thanks again .
Shariah Law isn't above any Countries Laws!!! Muslims have shown over n over again not to integrate and follow the cultures and laws of the places they migrate to. Have you even been inside a mosque and heard things they teach???
To kill any people who are non-believers and you call it a religion of peace???
Thank goodness we're not like the U.K. And we're not that dumb to destroy ourselves.
Freedom is number 1 over everything and ill die for it. MOST Americans will gladly die for it too.
If your unhappy with western culture, don't come here and disrespect our way of life. Get out and don't come back
Islam is the most divisive and dangerous religion. It's so bad. Islam has ruined my life. :(( I am GİRL and I AM SLAVE According to Islam :(( 6 months ago I became an atheist. And i am a very happy woman :)) <3
If an attack is going to come it will be from the muslims. This woman is counting on your gullibility. We do not have it as bad as the French, Germans and British do but that may change. The Israeli counter terrorist forces say "shoot the women first." A modern version of "destroy the monsters eggs."
