  • Focusing on my Islamic faith helps make military service possible

    I thank God (Allah in Arabic) every single day that I was born into the Islamic faith. Islam is so pure, and without it I would not be the person I am today. My parents taught me to how to practice our faith from an early age. When I was five, I learned to pray all five Islamic daily prayers (the Fajr, Dhuhr, Asr, Maghrib and Isha’a). I was also taught to never eat pork, never drink alcohol and live a moral lifestyle.
