Giving Thanks!

Thanksgiving is one holiday that everyone, no matter their faith, can fully appreciate. To express appreciation to God and man is something Islam teaches and I think it's great Thanksgiving affords me this opportunity every year.

As a member of the Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, I am thankful that I am a citizen of this great country where I can practice my faith without any restriction. Sadly, many so-called Islamic governments in the Middle East, South Asia and Southeast Asia would not grant me this protection.

So this Thanksgiving, I am thankful to all those who have afforded me the rights the First Amendment grants America's citizens.

I am truly thankful and proud that I am an American Muslim - a proud Muslimerican.
