This paper examines the mutualism between Muslims and the American land through a long journey since the very early of American history. In the trend of Islamophobia aftermath 9/11, the bond is analyzed with a new perspective through discourses in the novel Bulan Terbelah di Langit Amerika (2016), written by two Indonesian Muslims authors, Hanum Salsabiela Rais and Rangga Almahendra. It describes the relationship between American values and Islamic teachings in a mutualistic association. The moral lesson of the novel has been clear to show the readers that Islam still contributes significantly to the world and has been in a mutual relationship with American country along history.
