1. That’s extremely interesting. I often find that one of the impediments to developing this sense of identity is the exclusivity and isolationism, meaning muslims should only participate in “muslim society” and should only interact with other muslim. This as opposed to doing good in society at large. I feel like if we want to assert that Islam really is a religion of peace and equality and justice, then muslims should strive for peace and equality and justice not only for muslims but for all communities.

    1. Completely agree. Need to get out of our bubbles, which sometimes develop…especially in immigrant communities. Thanks for the comment!
