Too often, Islam is portrayed as something like a religious country club - exclusive, like it’s a religion only for the “perfect” people. It’s not. Islam is for broken people. To mend hearts and heal souls.

Games with English: insert the word “only” anywhere into the above sentence and consider how the placement changes meaning.

Let me see if this works in Dutch.
Zij zei dat ze van hem hield.
Alleen zij zei dat ze van hem hield.
Zij alleen zei dat ze van hem hield.
Zij zei alleen dat ze van hem hield.
Zij zei dat alleen ze van hem hield - incorrect sentence.
Zij zei dat ze alleen van hem hield.
Zij zei dat ze van alleen hem hield.
Zij zei dat ze van hem allen hield.

Let me see if it works in norwegian.
Hun fortalte han at hun elsket han.
Bare hun fortalte han at hun elsket han.Hun bare fortalte han at hun elsket han.Hun fortalte bare han at hun elsket han.Hun fortalte han bare at hun elsket han.Hun fortalte han at bare hun elsket han.Hun fortalte han at hun bare elsket han.Hun fortalte han at hun elsket bare han.Hun fortalte han at hun elsket han bare.
The last one is the only one that does not work.

True story; this officer (John Pike) got a settlement of $38,000 because he said he got depressed after pepper spraying these kids. Oh, the depression wasn’t for feeling remorseful for pepper spraying a bunch of college kids peacefully protesting. He got depressed because he said since the media kept playing the video of him pepper spraying peaceful kids without cause, he got threats and didn’t feel safe. He didn’t feel safe. I’m not making that up. This motherfucker collected nearly 40 grand on worker’s comp after assaulting a bunch of college kids.
