I live together with my wife Zenab in a flat.

I am a gymnastics teacher, and also teach other single subjects. 

I belong to the Muslims, the teachers, the handball players, the reflected ones, the romantic ones, the kind ones, the idealistic ones, but I do not belong to the uninhibited, the reckless, the pragmatic, the ones who eats pig and the fast-talkers.

I like to live in Oslo because it feels safe here. The city has a lot to offer with shops, cinemas, theatres and the possibility of jobs. I don’t know if I will live here in 10 years, I could also be happy outside Oslo - as long as it is not to far away from the city. 

I both agree and don’t agree with the saying that "the strongest in the world is the one the most alone". One is strong when one risks standing against something, but it is a good idea to follow the decision of the majority. Take 22nd of July: He is someone who goes against the majority. The best would be if we could all agree, but that is not going to happen. On the other hand, minority is also important. If we all agree we don’t know where we would end.

I turned from being a secular christian to becoming a Muslim when I was 26, but the search for a belief or meaning started earlier. My best friend died when we were in high-school. Such an experience either sends you towards religion and a belief in life after death, or it makes you convinced that there is no meaning at all.

For the performances I am taking the car, together with my wife.
