Editor’s note: this article was written in response to Asra Nomani and Hala Arafa’s piece: As Muslim women, we actually ask you not to wear the ‘hijab’ in the name of interfaith solidarity.

Dear Asra and Hala,

I need to share some things with you about my experience as a Modern Muslim woman, but before I do let me state this: America is as Muslim as apple pie. That’s right I said it.

So let me school you and our fellow Americans on why I’ve stated the above. Bear with me.
