A Land Called Paradise

I was going along and minding my business when yet another friend sent me an inspiring youtube video that I LOVED! This little clip combines clever ways of presenting the beauties of Islamic culture and contextualizing it for an American audience. In addition to providing exposure to an often misunderstood culture within the United States, this film rehumanizes a religious group that is often inaccurately portrayed by the media and politics.

I think my favorite clip is "Broccoli is my personal jihad," or maybe it's "My son thinks I named him after a Quranic word---I named him after my first crush!"
