...for a while, as announced previously
I'm feeling lazy today, so I'll let someone else do all the work. Thanks to "thess" for putting me on to this site
. It's another (Canadian?) Muslim with a sense of humor, perhaps more gentle than mine, but great fun all the same. I've enjoyed it so much, I put its link in the section at the right.
There's some technical jargon in there, to do with our worship rituals, but don't let that worry you, you should get the general drift. As we've been talking about Harry Potter, you might enjoy the minutes of the Hogwarts Muslim Students Association
, of whom there are four!
Here's an excerpt:Farooq wiped the sweat off his glasses. He knew managing the MSA Executive at Hogwarts was going to be tough but he was confident. He knew Islam could spread all over this school someday. He stood up and started his meeting. “Assalamu Alaikum. Look I know we haven’t made much progress these last few months but I think we should be optimistic! We’re the LARGEST religious club at Hogwarts and-” “Obviously” interrupted Abdul Wahab as his lips curled, “we’re the ONLY religious club in this school.” “Yeah but-” “Hey how many Muslims are there at campus?” questioned the oblivious Raza. “Uhhh four… the people in this room makes up the entire Muslim population at Hogwarts” explained Farooq. “What a charming group of individuals.” sneered Abdul Wahab sarcastically. “How many Jews are there at Hogwarts?” asked Raza, his nose showing signs of scrunching.Sophia opened her mouth to say something but instead started to tuck some loose hair under her hijab. “Two… but they’re pretty high up. I think they’re prefects and-” “ISRAEL SCUM!” shouted Abdul Wahab. “Hey, I think Neville Longbottom is interested in Islam. Salaaam Neville teehee.” giggled Sophia as she buzzed in her with her two cents. “Who the crap is Neville?” Raza asked. “Some magic-using, plant-loving kafir” scoffed Abdul Wahab, as his lips curled even more.
See you soon!
