I?m deeply sympathetic with what you?re going through. Even though I?m not married, I still only see myself with a South Asian husband (I grew up and around the culture). You?re right, it?s not fair. So many of our sisters are close minded when it comes to inner racial?well, anything! But I?ve found in my experiences that if I say true to the person I am inside, others around me will have no choice but to accept me for who I am. I mean, I own more saris than most of my desi friends, plus I know how to wrap one?which is something none of them can do! I watch Bollywood, and I?m not afraid to say so. Keep strong, your strength will only cause those around you to respond with curiosity and then in turn with open mindedness. I wish all the best for you my sister! Please message me if you wanna just talk about shared experiences.

I wonder why any other Muslims are not replying or say something at least even though more than 30 people viewed your comment. I bet you guys know a lot of these things happen.!

AsSalamu Aleykom SIster I'm really sorry you have to go through these sad MOments. May Allah give you strength and grant you prosperity this life and hereafter. Sister I don't know how widespread mosque segregation is in America, but in here (Canada) I haven't experience yet that much. Sister, Islam teaches us Muslims are brothers and sisters of one another. We have to love each other for the Sake of Allah S.W.A. disliking someone based on Nationality and ethnicity is not acceptable in Islam. Islam is not the religion for the Arabs, nor for the Pakistanis. Islam is the religion for humanity regardless your social class, gender, ethnicity. "Why are so many Muslims so racist, hostile, and close-minded? Why am I not worthy to return salaam; can anyone not American answer" Some Muslims mix Islam with culture that contradicts the true message of Islam. most people who claim to be Muslims but think racist is acceptable are not real muslims...but fake. Most muslims in North America bring their cultures with them even though it has no bases....Unfortunately their close-minded let to thinking that their culture is superior than others. "Why am I not worthy to return salaam; can anyone not American answer" Sister you are worthy more than just return of Salaams. You need to find practicing Muslims not pretenders who will accept you as sister of Islam who deserves respect, love, and above all welcoming you unconditionally. "Why do other Muslims look at me as if I'm less of a person because I married someone whose skin color is different" in Islam it doesn't matter who you marry as long as he is a muslim brother. When we die, Allah will not ask us our status, our skin color, or our wealth but our deeds. so ignore sister these Muslims who look you down because you married someone who doesn't have the same skin color as you. These muslims don't know their own religion, they are pretenders, hypocratic. "Can anyone explain to me why people are this way when we are all supposed to be brothers and sisters"? Sister few people practice Islam, the rest are just Muslim by name, ethnicity or whatever. But you need to be strong and hold tie the rope of Allah S.W.A. I have experience the same thing but it was not about ethnicity, but rather it was them speaking their own language other than English. I don't want to single out particular ethnicity though. May Allah grant them wisdom and guidence
