1. Q: What is the book called that they base their lives on? A: the Qur'an. This book is like the Bible is for Christians.

2. Q: Is Islam inherently violent? A: the first part of the Qur'an talks more about kindness and the second part is more about fighting. But the second part does not override the first part like some people think it does. Killing innocent people and killing your self is prohibited in Islam. 

3. Q: Are women oppressed and discriminated against in Islam? Most women wear the coverings on the heads and maybe even over their face, but women think they are doing this by their own will. Some women have gotten killed by their fathers for not dating people in the Islamic religion or being to "American". It says in the Qur'an that men and worm are equal and have equal duties. 

4. Q: Why are some Muslims very silent? A: some muslims who are not radical muslims think that radical ones are not in their right mind for killing people when they are saying Arabic prayers too. The moderate muslims feel like they need to be very nice and apologize for the other radical muslims even though the moderate muslims haven't done anything wrong.

5. Q: how can two religions who are very different come together? A: When there was a horrible tragedy of a Muslim girl, Muslims and Christians came together to search for her. They were not defining each other by their religion, but instead seeing each other as their own brothers and sisters.
