Amos also learned how to read the Bible. Amos Fortune was blessed to have the Copelands as his slave owner. When Amos received his freedom at the age of sixty, he knew not only how to survive in the colonies, but he had also been taught the importance of living a godly life. Amos Fortune appreciated and found encouragement in the scriptures. One of the Copeland children, whose name was Roxanna, read the Bible to Amos when he was a teenager.
The mother grants God praise for allowing her son to make it in business and warns her son not to crave for more than what he needs (Doc. 6B) However, many Christians also looked down upon merchants. A reading from the Christian Bible, Gospel of Matthew circa 70-80 CE, summarizes the view of most Christians toward commerce. In a parable, Jesus Christ compares the ease of passing a camel through the eye of a needle to the entrance of a rich man into Heaven, (Doc. 1).
Islamic visual arts are ornamental, vibrant, and, in religious art, nonrepresentational and often associated with the arabesque style. Early Islam forbade the painting of human beings, including the Prophet, as Muslims believe this tempts followers of the Prophet to idolatry. A prohibition against depicting representational images in religious art, as well as the naturally decorative nature of Arabic script, led to the use of calligraphic decorations, which usually involved repeating geometrical patterns that expressed ideals of order and nature. These methods were used on both religious and secular art and architectures such as scripts, carpets, ceramics, decorations, jewelry and more textiles.

“I am not what you call a civilized man! I have done with society entirely, for reasons, which I alone have a right to appreciate.

There was no kite, no key, no bolt, no knuckle, no charge. He let people believe that he had been places he never went, done things he never did, and seen things that never happened.

Franklin understood the power of asking the right questions - whether in politics or science.
He also explains why people should not judge a book by its cover. Although he is an Arab American, Hamud is a very modernized Muslim, does not speak Arabic and possess many mainstream American qualities. I wholeheartedly agree with Hamud’s claims. We live in a world with many different races, nationalities and skin colors.

Buckley identifies apathy as a part of American culture, and does not point out specific to any certain socioeconomic class, gender, race, or religion. Americans of all types are apathetic toward large issues such as global human rights or other political issues, and even towards the minor ones such as annoying inconveniences such as a hot bus, so Buckley writes to any
