What Do You Want The World To Know About Arab Culture? - Hind Al HassounWritten by Muslims of Ottawa
Muslim Link is continuing its series Muslims of Ottawa. At the Arabian Canadian Bazaar, we asked Arab Muslims from Ottawa the question: What Do You Want The World to Know about Arab Culture?. Here is a volunteer with the Palestinian Students' Association of Carleton University, Hind Al Hassoun's response.
What I want people to know about the Arab culture that it’s not ISIS. The Arab culture is not angry men on TV or angry men oppressing their women. The Arab culture is one of the most beautiful cultures in the world! The Arab culture is all about generosity and hospitality. It is about caring and loving your family and friends. The Arab culture is about having huge dinner parties every week because you feel like it. Last thing I want to say for all the non-Arabs, is please visit an Arab country or read about one, you’ll know it is better than what the media portrays.
