{September 25, 2007}   Happy Smiling Muslims – Day 1

I am really sick and tired of seeing pictures of angry Muslims in the media. While I do agree that there are many Muslims out there who seriously need to take the chill pill or take anger management classes to say the least, it is also true that there are a lot of good Muslims out there who are genuinely happy and who love to laugh, smile and find happiness in helping others. So for at least for the duration of Ramadan I will be posting pictures of Muslim who are smiling or at least look cool. So here is a picture for day 1.
