But, if we fail to wake up now, we will never wake up.

Our time is now.

As a part of the next generation of millennial Muslims, I vow to continue to be an asset to my faith, my country, and the world. So, as I continue my true existence and purpose-driven life as a proud Muslim citizen of our global community, regardless of whether or not I am welcome in your home, you are welcome in mine.

My home is America.
