    OMG!! You so hit on the "Are you a true Chicago native thing." As someone who is born and raised on the south side of Chicago (off of 76 & Eggleston), we do pride ourselves on being that true Chicagoan. Yes, we will question you about where you grow up at. And yes there is a snubness to say that "actually I am from Evanston or Naperville or Havery, to name a few suburbs. Plus if you are a true Chicagoan you will need to know your neighbors for fun, food, and parties.

    Another rule: don't talk to the chicagoans.
    If you see someone from here, we have somewhere to be. If they're wearing headphones, don't start a conversation. Hell, I wear headphones without anything on them just so I can avoid conversation.

    The Complete Religion

    A-The Islamic Creed and Beliefs
    Islam is the path to pleasing God and for salvation in the next life, for Islam is the clear
    and final message that God conveyed to humanity.
    1-Islam is to believe in One Lord: Allah the Most High, the Living, the Most Great, the most Merciful. Allah has no equals and nothing is like Him. Allah was not birthed and did not birth, and the entire world is under His power and dominion.
    2-Islam is to believe in the existence of Angels, peace be with them.
    3-Islam is to believe in all the Messengers and Prophets like Abraham, Moses, and Jesus, peace be with them.
    4-Islam is to believe in all the divinely-inspired books that these Messengers and Prophets received. The Qur’an is Islam’s eternal miracle which God promised to preserve. As a result of that, all Muslims, young and old, read the same Qur’anic text worldwide, without the slightest variation even in a single letter.
    5-Islam is to believe in the Last Day, when people will be brought back to life.
    6-Islam is also to believe that all the good and bad that come is part of what Allah has destined.

    B-Islamic Practice
    Islam calls for the best in actions and deeds, reflecting the fulfillment of complete servitude and obedience to God and the refinement of human nature.
    1-You accept Islam by saying the testimony: I bear witness that there is no one worthy of worship except Allah and I bear witness that Muhammad is His slave and messenger.
    2-You perform five daily prayers, with the necessary physical cleanliness and ablution.
    3-You pay the annual Zakah, which is a small charity given to the poor and needy.
    4-You fast the days of the month of Ramadan every year.
    5-And if you are able to, you travel on pilgrimage to Makkah once in your life time.

    C-Principles that Islam Establishes
    1-Islam and the Liberation of the Mind
    True belief in God is consistent with reason, while also inconsistent with polytheistic beliefs and the worshipping of idols, statues, the stars, and the devils and all that is connected to them such as witchcraft, fortune-telling, and other harmful acts. And though the Qur’an is a book of guidance, it also contains miraculous insights and information about the universe, astronomy, embryology, mountains, and various other creations. Islam opened the doors wide for scientific advancement and the Arabs moved soon after accepting Islam to create the biggest and leading civilization in the world. They only retreated from such advanced positions when they let go of much of their religion.
    2-Islam and Human Advancement
    Islam commands the preservation of the five human essentials: religion, life, the mind, honor, and wealth. With these protected, the Muslim can live a peaceful life, working for this life and the one to come after death, and the Muslim community lives like a solid block, connected and supportive of its members. This can only happen when these five essentials are protected from harm. Islam also promoted advancements in several aspects of human life. There is no difference between people of different races and colors except though piety. Islam even called for the good treatment of non-Muslims whoever they may be, for there is reward in the good that we do to any living being. Islam also calls on us to be merciful with the weak and kind to women, children, and the elderly. As for women, Islam gave them their complete rights, including the ownership of property and inheritance, and prohibited their ill-treatment. Women also keep their surnames after marriage in Islam. Islam also encouraged the freedom of slaves and combatted illegitimate slavery.
    3-Islam is a Living Religion:
    Islam is a living religion that promotes optimism and action and shuns pessimism and lethargy. Islam also establishes balance in human life and fulfills human desires while restraining their excesses. So while Islam forbids unrestrained sexual permissiveness it recommends marriage and family life. And when Islam forbids usury it opens the doors wide for charity and easy loans as well as commerce and trade. Islam also recommends athleticism like back horse riding and swimming.

    3:39 that's a pretty good 7/11. The billy goay tavern is pretty good too. More of a historical place tho. There's a pretty nice homeless guy who sits there as well
    Edit: The drivers in Chinatown are madmen

    I live in the part of town you're not supposed to go to. Yes as a tourist you have no business being in those areas. Chicago is also very segregated. So if you're not a minority and the police see you in those areas, you will be pulled over because they'll think you're there to buy drugs. Those areas however are not warzones as the news portrays them
