The Son of a Terrorist

Thanks to the team of Virgin Unite, I had the pleasure to meet Zak Ebrahim last night. He is the son of a terrorist. And, he is a gentle, soft spoken beautiful soul. His story moved me and gives me so much hope for this world. Empathy can change the world! We need more of it!

  1. Quran (8:12) – “I will cast terror into the hearts of those who disbelieve. Therefore strike off their heads and strike off every fingertip of them”

    Quran (4:89) – “They wish that you should disbelieve as they disbelieve, and then you would be equal; therefore take not to yourselves friends of them, until they emigrate in the way of God; then, if they turn their backs, take them, and slay them wherever you find them; take not to yourselves any one of them as friend or helper.”

    Bukhari (52:260) – “…The Prophet said, ‘If somebody (a Muslim) discards his religion, kill him.’ ”

    Bukhari (84:57) – [In the words of] “Allah’s Apostle, ‘Whoever changed his Islamic religion, then kill him.'”

    Violence isn’t inherent in this religion? Don’t be fooled by this propaganda. His voice is the minority.

  2. Thank you for posting this powerful video. Empathy is indeed the only thing that can heal this world.

    “his voice is the minority” … I hope you don’t seriously think that, and I’m really sorry for you if you do. You should talk more with people from other cultures, religions etc

  4. Steve Park, first of all, educate yourself more and widen your perspective on the Quran verses. You might find yourself surprised how many verses that propose peace and tolerance there are.

    Maybe approved Huffington Post is also fooled like you think others are?
