It was a small gesture but a Muslim doctor in Idaho said it brought back “a faith in humanity.”
After a 91-year-old patient heard about a politician wanting to ban Muslims from coming to the United States, she showed her doctor how caring America can be — she stood up for her friend.
She crocheted some stuffed animals for Dr. Fahim Rahim, letting him know a lot of Americans are like her: “(We) can feel your pain and what you’re going through.”

The kidney patient, unnamed by Dr. Rahim, had been listening to her physician being interviewed on a local radio show in Pocatello, when he was asked about the proposed Muslim ban by presidential candidate Donald Trump.
Dr. Rahim says his patient didn’t know who Trump was, but she didn’t like his idea.
On her next visit to the Idaho Kidney Center, the lady brought along a bag full of stuffed animals she’d crocheted.
As for the presidential candidate, Dr. Rahim sympathizes with people who don’t understand Islam or American Muslims.
“I honestly don’t blame him. These kinds of ideas come when you don’t know,” Rahim told KIFI News.
The doctor has publicly offered to let Trump spend a day with him on his rounds so the presidential hopeful can get to know “a real American Muslim.”
