A MUSLIM CHILD DEFENDS THE FAITH

I am 9 years old, and I am a Muslim. I am writing this essay to tell you
about Muslims. Muslims are not bad people. They do not do bad things. They do not blow up buildings. They respect people. They respect the world. Muslims aren't mean to people. They are friendly and honest.
Muslims live all over the world. Not all Muslims are the same.
We worship one God, Allah. Allah has 99 names, like the Most Gracious and the Most Merciful. Muslims pray five times a day. We fast in Ramadan from dawn until dusk. Our holy book is the Koran. We should try to go to the Kaba in Mecca at least once in our lifetime if we can.
Muslims are clean; they are not dirty. Muslims are kind to animals. They do not hurt animals.
We believe in Prophet Mohammed and many other prophets like Adam, Abraham, Noah and Jesus. Shaytan is the Arabic word for the devil. He makes people do bad things. He is bad.
