For the first time in my life I did not feel like a minority in United States. Saturday October 4th, Islamic Circle of North America (ICNA) hosted its first annual Muslim family day at Six Flags. It was nationwide event hosted at Six Flags Theme Park in Dallas, New Jersey, Boston, Atlanta, Chicago, and Washington D.C.

I was surprised at how many people showed up! About 10,000 Muslims came to the Six Flags I went to the one in Los Angeles. The whole atmosphere was filled with joy. Old men, old women, parents, kids, even toddlers showed up. There were bunch of Hijabi sisters, some even wore Niqab, which is always nice to see.
The volunteer gave out fliers and free Quran to non-Muslims at the entrance. I thought that was very good for Dawah considering they were able to see the presence of the Muslims and even see us offering Salah.

I’m wondering if anyone else went to Six Flags? If so, share your thoughts .
