The Sept. 11 terrorist attacks had a lasting impact on most Americans, but perhaps more so for Muslims and Arab Americans who suddenly found themselves the objects of suspicion and, in some cases, outright hatred.
Tarek Nahlawi, an area businessman who is on the board of directors of the Michigan Islamic Academy, said he felt there was suspicion of the Muslim community immediately following the attacks. People looked at Muslims differently and questioned aspects of their personal lives, religion and culture, he said.
Some people were immediately prejudiced against all Muslims, Nahlawi said, but the majority of people with whom he interacted on a personal level were friendly and supportive.

They would be better served finding out what "allah" is, and the effects of serving it in this life, and in the next. They are being led in a rebellion against the Biblical God which will cost them their lives, and their souls, unless they change their minds about Jesus Christ, the Son of God.
2 Thessalonians 2 (in part)
The Lawless One
1 Now we ask you, brothers, regarding the coming of our Lord Jesus, the Messiah, and our gathering together to him, 2 not to be so quickly upset or alarmed when someone claims that we said, either by some spirit, conversation, or letter that the Day of the Lord has already come. 3 Do not let anyone deceive you in any way, for it shall not come unless the rebellion takes place first and the man of sin, who is destined for destruction, is revealed. 4 He opposes and exalts himself above every so-called god and object of worship. As a result, he seats himself in the sanctuary of God and himself declares that he is God.
5 Don't you remember that I repeatedly told you about these things when I was still with you? 6 You know what it is that is now holding him back, so that he will be revealed when his time comes. 7 For the secret of this lawlessness is already at work, but only until the person now holding it back gets out of the way. 8 Then the lawless one will be revealed, whom the Lord will destroy with the breath of his mouth, rendering him powerless by the manifestation of his coming.
9 The coming of the lawless one[h] will be accompanied by the power of Satan. He will use every kind of power, including miraculous signs, lying wonders, 10 and every type of evil to deceive those who are dying, those who refused to love the truth that would save them. 11 For this reason, God will send them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie. 12 Then all who have not believed the truth but have taken pleasure in unrighteousness will be condemned.
