  • They believe that dogs are unclean and should not be kept as companion animals and are especially wary of black dogs, they believe they are like bad luck or a bad omen if one crosses their path.

    The Muslims in my neighborhood always cross to the other side of the street and ask my to put the dog on my other side (so I'm between then and the dog) at first I just thought they were scared of him and thought he was mean because he's a Doberman, I'd try to tell them he's not mean, and they would say it's not that. So I looked it up.

  • We have a dog and my husband is Muslim! We do not eat pork. They are kind, caring, respectable individuals who are very calm, patient and loving.

  • That it it ISLAM, not "Muslim"

    That they aren't all terrorists

    That the vast majority of them do not believe in killing for their religion, and in fact that is AGAINST most forms of Islam except the extreme, extreme ones

    That "jihaad" is not "holy war" on other religions or countries, but a war within oneself to be pure (this term is widely, widely misinterpreted)

    That it is the most wide-spread religion in the world, and not some off-beat, cultish phenomena
