"..And whoever saves one, it is as if he had saved mankind entirely.."(Quran 5:32)
And without realizing the MCU manifested the most heroic act a Muslim could do, saving Tony Starks life that one day on May 2, 2008, Ho Yinsen indirectly ends up saving the whole universe in 2023.
Yinsen led by example of Islam in terms of seeing the best in people. He knew Starks military involvement in foreign soil was the whole reason that he was in a terrorist camp, also likely why he lost his whole family yet he still spoke to Tony with respect.
He spoke to the side of Tony that wanted good for humanity. He patiently educated him on the what/where his weapons have been going and used for. He looks over Tony's mistakes.
"Hold to forgiveness; command what is right; But turn away from the ignorant"(Quran7:199)
What mattered to Yinsen is at that moment Tony was being wronged and he needed help. 'What is right' is to stand for the victim. Yinsen helped. I don't know if he trusted Tony with his life but he valued another human life and made sure to do his part in saving Tony from harm.
Finally 'turning away from the ignorant'. He learns that Tony wasn't directly involved in the decision making. So he chose to ignore whatever the terrorists had to say and whatever he knew of Stark weapons. He makes his own judgement on Tony based on their interactions.
And finally, watching the scene where Yinsen is shooting into the cave. His goal is to stall the bad guys so he starts shooting the henchmen away but he never shoots at them, he doesn't risk killing them even though the guys are literally out there ready to kill him on sight
Instead Yinsen shoots towards the walls of the cave making grunts and noises to shoo away people like wow dude even at gun point he values human life so much because

"Whoever kills a innocent... it would be as if he killed all mankind..." (Quran 5:32)
My fav part, Yinsen might not have gotten to know the Tony we know BUT he believed in him, and it resonated with Tony. This strange man probably saw more in him than his ever dad did so he took it upon himself to change. He committed to using his power and privilege responsibly
So not only is this an amazing portrayal of a Muslim that isn't simply wearing a tasbeeh or reading the Quran but rather a real Muslim who was an embodiment of the Quran. A person whose actions inspired and changed THE TONY STARK and thereby impacted the Universe.
So there you have it folks, no IronMan without a Muslim. So be cognizant of your actions this Ramadan and after. You never know who you inspire :)
