Mine muslimske superhelter: Usama Canon

(…) when people get to a place where they feel so spiritual and religious, that somehow their religious experience makes them immune from having to deal with the poor little reality that you are dealing with on the ground:

I’m sorry you want to commit suicide, I’m sorry you’re kicked out of your house, I’m sorry your parents disowned you. But I’m just making alot of dhikr right now. So I’ll make dua* for you while I’m making dhikr**.

That’s a reality. Spiritual bypassing. Look, to be honest, alot of times you talk about cultural sensitivity. But what you’re really asking is why don’t American muslims have space where they can be safe as American muslims?

Usama Canon 

*dua: en form for bønn, supplication på engelsk.

**dhikr: ihugkommelse, religiøs individuell eller kollektiv messing.
