How to Handle Inappropriate Questions About Islam Like a Boss (And Keep Your Sense of Humor)

As Muslim women in western countries, we’ve all been there. You’re minding your own business, wearing your hijab, or fasting during Ramadan, and suddenly someone feels entitled to ask you invasive questions about your faith. While it’s easy to get annoyed or upset, it’s important to remember that these situations can also be opportunities to educate and enlighten others. And if you can do it with a touch of humor, even better!

Here are some examples of how to respond to inappropriate questions about Islam like a boss:

  1. "Oh, I'm sorry, I didn't realize you were applying for a job as my religious advisor. Can I see your resume?"

  2. "Actually, I have a really great book recommendation for you if you're interested in learning more about Islam. It's called the Quran."

  3. "I'm sorry, I didn't realize you were asking me to speak on behalf of all Muslims. Let me just call up my 1.8 billion friends and ask them their thoughts."

  4. "Oh, I don't mind answering qu

estions about my faith. But first, can you tell me how to solve world hunger?"

  1. "I'll answer your question if you answer mine first: do you know the difference between cultural traditions and religious beliefs?"

  2. "I can see you have a lot of questions, but I'm running late for my appointment with the Imam. Maybe we can chat again sometime!"

Remember, it’s important to approach these situations with grace and patience. But don’t be afraid to inject a little humor to keep the conversation light-hearted and enjoyable for everyone involved.
