If you’re a Muslim currently living in America, you’d probably approach an anonymous letter left on your front door with some trepidation as reported by Metro. Especially after Donald Trump was sworn in as the new President of the United States.
But this family, from Cincinnati, were pleasantly surprised to receive a positive note full of warmth and love outside their home.
The letter, which was not signed, read:
“Today begins a new stage for our country.
No matter what happens, please know there are still a lot of people who will fight for your right to practice your religion, to continue to live your lives without discrimination.
You are welcome in our neighbourhood and if you need anything – please knock on our door.”
Hend Amry, the niece of the home owner, shared a picture of the card that her uncle received on Twitter straight after Trump’s inauguration. The tweet went viral.
The tweet received some wonderful responses from several non-Muslim Americans and non-Americans.

Under it she wrote:
‘This is the America that took us in as political refugees, the America that gave us a new home, & the America that keeps my hope alive today.’
