What Would You Do? February 28, 2008

Filed under: Islam,News,Random — musaafir @ 12:42 pm

“If you see something and you think it’s wrong, do you step in or do you step away? What people say and what they do isn’t always the same…”

An interesting series explores what people really do when confronted with different situations.

One WebCast shows a Muslim woman being discriminated against and some customers leave the store refusing business. Others give thumbs up to the rude, offensive person behind the counter and agree that if they owned a business, they’d do the same thing. I think we’d all like to think we’d do the right thing and “stand on the side of the oppressed” but would we silently watch or actually step in?

    I wasalmost in tears when I saw that. I was so angry and deply hurt when I saw how he spoke to her, but even more the man who gave the thumbs up and ten told the reporter that he wasn’t Muslim either. May Allah keep us safe and sane.
    Subhanallah
