"The darkest places in hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis."
One concern. No matter what good a Muslim does, will never be enough for many.
If my post offends you, I deeply Apple-O-Jize.
Remember Christopher Hitchens? For years he argued that the mainstream Islamic religion really does believe and preach that they are the final religion and final solution and that a caliphate will come and take over the world. Billions of Muslims believe this to be true and why so many think they can kill with impunity. So when Islamic leaders like say...the Saudis condemn certain beliefs in the Koran in the same breath they condemn terrorism then....that would be worth noting.
Imo, the Saudi's are the elephant in the room that no one seems to want to address. They've been supporting and turning a blind eye to terrorism for decades. Most of the 9/11 hijackers were from Saudi Arabia. The Saudi's showed up in Paris at the unity rally to fight terrorism and a couple days later they brutally flog and imprison a young blogger for criticizing them. The Saudi's are hypocrites and at the heart of the terrorism problem, imo.

hell ,I'm a white dude... idiots still throw slavery on our face to this very day, despite none of us owning slaves or even condoning the practice.
everyone finds themselves in this particular boat from time to time.
