Isra Mohammed, 15, a Muslim student in Newcastle, England delivered one of the most powerful speeches we’ve heard in a long time.
In the above video, she reveals a few of stereotypes that come along with the world’s understanding of Islam. “So what is Islam, and what do we actually believe in?” she asked of the 2,000-plus students she spoke to during an assembly.
Her answer was quite clear, “It’s a beautiful religion like many others. It’s a religion of peace and mercy.”
She then goes on to explain what ISIS has done harm Muslim men, women, and children.
We hope you gain as much inspiration and understanding as we did from this video.
