What would you ask an American Muslim?

As the Islamic holy month of Ramadan started, the nation mourned the loss of Muhammad Ali, a convert who had become the most well-known Muslim in America. Just two days after Ali was buried, the nation was confronted by the horrific tragedy in Orlando, where a shooter — apparently inspired by ISIS — killed 49 and wounded 53.

Along with fasting and worship, Muslims on Long Island and around the country will also deal with questions about their place in American society, as well as negative rhetoric mixed with statements of support.

This is an opportunity to break down barriers: What question would you ask a Muslim Long Islander? And if you’re Muslim, what do you wish your neighbors knew about you or your faith?
