It is funny when you discover that things you believe to be true are not true at all. I have been walking this path nearly twenty years. To me, my Islam is self-evident. But it is not so. Rarely do others link my behaviour, my utterances or my associations to my beliefs. Even when I have been spotted praying in a mosque, people must jump to all manner of preposterous conclusions to explain away my presence. It is funny: I thought my faith was self-evident, but it turns out it is not so. No, I’m still just that odd eccentric I always was, traversing two worlds, but never really a part of either.
