    Since several news networks emphasize that the mosques at the Christchurch shootings were #PeacefulMosques, as if most aren't:

    Hey muslims, tell me something painfully mundane and common at your mosque, whether you visit it five times a day or one time a year.

    Non-muslims, RT.

    At my #PeacefulMosques, we used to have this 5-ish year old kid that would always run in front of everyone during prayer, and when he grew old enough to realize that was improper he stopped doing that and I actually kinda missed him messing up my prayer.

  2. I'm a non believer but that did not matter to my local mosque when my house caught fire. They didn't care about anything but helping us. This is heartbreaking.

  3. Also, my 2 year old nephew singing "I like big butts" during jummah prayer cause he's obsessed with the movie Sing.

  4. A CAT!!! Pretty sure every mosque has a few inhabitant cats, strolling around, lazily lie itself during Friday prayer 🐱

    Ps: the written words are in Indonesian, it says, “Sleeping is prohibited inside the mosque”

  5. At evening lectures, the kids at my #PeacefulMosque quietly play rock-paper-scissors with each other from across the rows while the Imans and speakers give their lecture

  6. I did the exact same thing as a kid, in between being used as messaging system between dad and his friends so they could coordinate leaving after prayer without having to use their phone in the mosque

  7. Exactly! People are people! It doesn’t matter race, beliefs, origin, or anything. In the end, everyone is the same. Choosing to label a certain kind of person as inherently dangerous is the reason the world is such a terrible place for so many people.

  9. The world suffered the loss of good, kind, loving humans in NZ today. People who are repeatedly accused of bad, despite the good they are always doing. Inexplicable and heartbreaking.

  10. I don't visit mosques unless I'm visiting family in the middle east, I'm simply too scared to go for so many reasons.

  11. This. This whole thread reminds me of all the church ladies and church cats and church pigeons I’ve known, and the fact that our communities are so similar, but that one has been so thoroughly vilified, just breaks my heart and makes me even more committed to peace and justice.

  12. We need to do everything we can as humans, to show them our love and correct the dangerous misconceptions so many seem to have.
