‘Phobia‘ is defined as “… an excessive and irrational fear of a specific object, activity or situation” There are so many phobia in America, from the mundane phobia of Olive pits, Fruit seeds, to the feral of foreigners, and natives but clearly the most severe case of phobia in America is Islamophobia and the irrational fear of Islamic Sharia.
‘Sharia‘ is an Arabic word meaning a straight path to follow. According to Dr. Asifa Quraishi-LandesSharia is a general legal framework, “… not a book of status or judicial precedent imposed by a government, and it’s not a set of regulations adjudicated in court.” So many Americans are fearful of Islamic Sharia, which is just a set of general rules that aren’t even imposed by anyone here, though there are anti Sharia laws in ten states in America.
Muslims Celebrated the Super Eid at US Bank Football Stadium (Video)
On a beautiful, chilly August morning, thousands of Muslims here in Minnesota headed to, of all places, the US Bank football stadium. There they gathered in the tens of thousands to celebrate what was coined as “Super” Eid. The Eid al Adha (feast of sacrifice) commemorates the story of Abraham and his son Ishmael (let us not get picky on which son), who was to be sacrificed until God replaced him with a sheep. On this celebratory day, thousands of Muslims descended from everywhere by cars, buses, light rail, even on foot, dressed in their colorful cloths unapologetically celebrating their traditions and costumes.
