We plan to have a picnic today, so off we went to a park. It was a lovely park.

While the two of us were walking at the park, three kids ran towards us:

Kids: "Hey, did you remember us, we were the one who   threw water at you, yesterday" 
Us:"But we are not from here, we just arrived from S_____. It can't be us". 
Kids: "But we swear it was you, one of you, i remembered this (while showing one of our scarf)" 
Us: "It can't be, we just arrived here. You must have mistaken us with some of our friends who stayed here" 
Kids: "But i remembered your face. Blimey, you do look alike, are you family?"

and the conversation went on and on, it was very interesting to hear what they were saying despite the fact that they are just 16, 14 and 10 year old kids (they do look young - kids)  until one part that struck me  :

Kid (one of them) : "My teacher used to tell me about her religion, it was a horrible religion where she will get punished when she died if she do bad stuff. She used to tell us how horrible the religion was" 
Me: "Well, in my opinion, it makes sense. Why do we have policeman here? 
Kid: "If not, thief will break into the shops and everything" 
Me:  "Well, same goes with the punishment, if you do bad stuff, you will need to be  punished, don't you think it makes sense?" 
Kid: "Yes, but will you get punished immediately?" 
Me: "You will be given time to repent" 
Kids: "What is your GOD's name?. Is it Allah?" 
Us: "Yes" 
Kid: "It is the same GOD as my teacher's"

They ended up joining us for our picnic, and today's incident made me think, we Muslims are the one who gives misconceptions to people out there about Islam. We are the one who portrayed the wrong portrayal of Islam to the non-believers of Allah. People said Muslims are the advertisement of Islam and I also once heard that the worst advertisement on earth are the Muslims because we have the most precious product in the world - ISLAM and yet, we portrayed IT so badly that people doesn't even want to know about it if they meet a Muslim first and not be exposed to the beauty of ISLAM.. Something to ponder upon by all Muslims.
