quarter-finals.jpgsemi-finals.jpgI missed all the games, because i was at the ICNA convention. England and Portugal & Germany and Argentina were exciting games from what I heard and read online. Italy had an easy win over Ukraine. We all knew that.

Sadly, Brasil lost to France. Stupid Zidane. Muslims love him, becuase he is Muslim. If he was a good person he would boycott France, since they banned hijab. If his mother wanted to wear hijab, she wouldn’t be able too. Zidane even said he isn’t a practicing Muslim. Whatever.

2010…Brasil will be back

    2. Faiza July 4th, 2006 at 5:52 pm

      NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO! Germany lost!!! Those last two goals were… Why did they have to be so perfect???? Now I just hope they will win bronze if not gold…

      I hope Portugal will kick some ass.. But I doubt it. I just don’t want France to win :(

      That’s what you said, bro, but there is a PRACTICING Muslim on the team: Franck Ribery…Therefore, I got to go with France for tomorrow!

    4. erm July 4th, 2006 at 7:10 pm

      Zidane is wicked at football, plus france played btter than brazil throughout the whole match. Brazil will be back as winners esp once zidane retires(again)…

    5. Munzareen July 4th, 2006 at 8:27 pm

      hey! watch where you tread.. don’t call people stupid..

      and ahem need i remind you that y’all can see the awrah of men! (the thighs!)

    6. Zaki July 4th, 2006 at 9:03 pm

      Its bad time I say something about awrah in soccer. I guess you should not watch most of other sports like tennis or swimming because they show more part of the body than soccer.lol. Plus, they show more awrah in any other tv shows. Munzareen, I am really amazed that none of those crosses your mind, but only soccer games. I didn’t mean to sound serious, but I am really amused with your comment(s).

    7. Mujahideen Ryder July 4th, 2006 at 9:03 pm

      ITALY!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    8. Zaki July 4th, 2006 at 9:06 pm

      iightt. Awesome game bro. You missed it.

    9. MilkShaykh July 4th, 2006 at 9:12 pm

      I totally agree with Zaki…it’s pretty sad if you become attracted to the players because their thighs show (paraphrasing something a wise guy said awhile ago, right MR?). If it is such a problem, then don’t watch the Workd Cup, don’t impose your concern on others.

    10. Reggae Powered DC2 July 4th, 2006 at 10:57 pm

      (Girly Voice) omg, I saw his knees, oh there is some nice thighs. omg I wanna marry him

    11. Reggae Powered DC2 July 4th, 2006 at 10:58 pm

      I put “Girly Voice” in brackets on either side of my last comment. But they didnt show, now it looks like I wanna marry “him” because I saw his knees and thighs …

    12. Radeyah July 4th, 2006 at 11:00 pm

      First trinidad, then ghana, ecaudor, brazil and now germany….so by default i am now cheering for france since there isn’t any team left that i like. I can officially proclaim…Go Zidane and Ribery!!!!

      HEEHEE! (Girly voice): Everywhere I go, all I see are thighs, thighs, and more thighs…I can’t take it anymore!

    15. Munzareen July 5th, 2006 at 12:06 am

      I don’t know why you guys got serious.
      If you don’t wanna listen to me then don’t.

      There’s awrah everywhere and it’s better to keep our gazes down. And fyi- I don’t watch soccer, or tennis, or swimming. I don’t give fancy to such things because it’s not spiritually beneficial to me. I never imposed anything on anyone. I made a comment about awrah. Someone told me to read up on Zidane because he is a Muslim on the French team, I opened the page and promptly shut it. It’s sinful to see another man’s thighs if you are a man or a woman.So that whole thing about girls wanting to marry a man because of seeing his thighs, please drop it. You know it has no significance because MEN can’t see the awrah of other men. And yes, it’s sinful for girls to see other girl’s thighs too. So if it were girl’s soccer and girls were watching it, I’d say the same thing. But I can’t force you to do anything. So leave it, if my advice doesn’t benefit you, then that’s that.

      And if you think I’m harsh, then really I’m sorry. Forgive me for offending you but I’m not wrong in when I’m saying there is awrah present.

      Oh and TV? Yea, I know about the awrah and barely watch TV anyhow. So don’t attack what I do when you don’t know what I do :)

      I know how you all are very passionate about your sports, so I won’t take much offense cause what you do techinically doesn’t effect me in the aakhirah, so I’ll worry about ME not seeing the awrah thank you very much.

      lol. Sorry for the essay. MR decided to tell me I had “haters” on his blog when I didn’t really think anyone was “hating” on me. Unnecessary drama. :) Sorry! I wouldn’t have come back to this post had it not been for him.

    16. mujahideenryder July 5th, 2006 at 12:13 am

      Munzareen is right. Awrah is in soccer. Even if we do not have any feelings due to it, it is still awrah and we should try to stare at the ball or the players’ heads or the grass.

      Alhamdulillah the only time where the awrah is clear is when the shorts is fully above the knees. The knees is actually not part of awrah. Everything above the knees and below the belly button is awrah (for the men).

    17. Munzareen July 5th, 2006 at 12:18 am

      Post-Script:
      Since I have recently been informed that you cannot see a man’s thighs at all points, I can understand. But that does not mean that it is permissible to see a man’s thighs. I will stick to that point. If you don’t see the men’s thighs, great for you. :)

    18. Munzareen July 5th, 2006 at 12:25 am

      Addendum:

      lol. really sorry about my overly long post. but.. if i’ve said anything wrong it’s from myself and i implore your forgiveness (even in tone, type, anything).

    19. ... July 5th, 2006 at 12:36 am

      awrah is awrah…oh, and those {girly voice} comments are pretty immature.

      Are you mocking Allah’s commands? It sounds that way.

    21. MilkShaykh July 5th, 2006 at 8:38 am

      I am going to apologize and retract my statement…it was in the heat of the moment, I was speculating that the next thing said would be FIFA World Cup is Haram and should not be watched…

      Munzareen, I am very sorry if I have hurt you in anyway, this would be the last thing I would do…

      I am truly sorry, and when it comes to matter of religion, nothing is funny and should be taken seriously.

      May Allah and everyone here please forgive me what I have said.

      Assalamu Alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh.

    22. Munzareen July 5th, 2006 at 1:37 pm

      Asalaamu Alaikum wa Rahmatullah,
      It’s okay MilkShaykh :) Sorry if I seemed condescending, I didn’t mean to be. I should be more mindful of my tongue. Interesting though.. I got an email today from Sunnipath. I’m taking a class called the Journey to Allah and there are forums up. ANyhow people ask pertinent questions. Just read:

      1st person’s post:
      Assalam `Alaykum,

      Can I still get close to Allah and everything Habib Ali is offering if I watch World Cup Soccer? I find it as a fun thing to do.

      I know this is a silly question, but in a way it’s not. I don’t like TV personally except for the Islamic channels (al-Resalah, IQRA) but sometimes I like to watch sports because I feel that life is not just work and religion, but we also need *some* entertainment.

      Wassalam.

      2nd person’s post:

      Assalaamu ‘alaikum wa Rahmatullahi wa Barakatuh,

      Most of us brothers around the globe have some inclination towards the round ball. Here in Australia the main game played is football or as it’s known ‘Aussie rules”.

      In soccer, the one issue that should strike us all is that the players usually do not cover their ‘awrah’ parts of their bodies. For instance in soccer most players’ shorts do not even reach the knee area – since the ‘awrah of a man is from the navel to the knee.

      So the excellent question of whether or not we can get closer to Allah subhaanahu wa ta’ala, by looking at the ‘awrah of other men – even if this is far removed as an intention by us – is a question which perhaps Sheikh Faraz should answer? I guess playing it is more beneficial than watching it (healthier, more interactive and also one of team building).

      May Allah subhaanahu wa ta’ala help me and you and all of us inshaAllah.

      Fi Amanillah

      Abu Khadijah

      I actually laughed because the post had perfect timing. SubhanAllah. That always happens to me. Anyhow, I’m not sitting here saying soccer is haram, just wanted to let you know there are others that had similar concerns and inshAllah when a scholar clarifies this I’ll let you guys know :) :)

      Mas’Salaama,
      Munzareen

    23. Radeyah July 5th, 2006 at 5:26 pm

      Zidane came through again…..France should win the world cup!

    24. Mohsin July 5th, 2006 at 5:29 pm

      just as i predicted….France vs Italy….France all the way!!!

    25. Sheraz July 6th, 2006 at 2:01 pm

      Are you feel well ? Just to clarify you that the law voted in France is not exactly on the hijjab but on all the ostentatious religious signs, including Kippa, Indian turban Sikh, hijjab, cross…..
      This ban is valid only in schools and secondary schools/high school. At the university each student can wear kippa, hijjab, turban Sikh, cross….

      Then stop believing that France prevents the Moslems from practising their religion, it is not true and you are you the Americans in the error. Specially you MR, when you say that :

      “Sadly, Brasil lost to France. Stupid Zidane. Muslims love him, becuase he is Muslim. If he was a good person he would boycott France, since they banned hijab. If his mother wanted to wear hijab, she wouldn’t be able too. Zidane even said he isn’t a practicing Muslim. Whatever.

      2010…Brasil will be back”

      Zinedine Zidane elected better player by big sports specialists. He obtained several times the golden balloon. He has a magnificent technical game and pleasant to look. And if in France, he is appreciated it is because it is the good player of football before, married with a woman that he met at the age of 17 (contrary to the other players who often change girls frienddis and show itself with top top models).
      It is a generous man who give to numerous charities for the children, the fight against the disease. It is the man who doesn’t show his private life, he doesn’t make the headlines of magazines. And when he makes the headlines of magazines it is for only the football.

      That’s why he is loved, all payed tribute to Zidane notably Real Madrid. Frankly, your comment makes pity, YOU, Americans, you like making sacred shortcuts when it is about France. You know nothing about France and even fewer about Zinedine Zidane.

      He was really a good person, he doesn’t need to boycott France to prove it, his generosity proves it. And if his mother wanted to wear hijab, she would be able to wear it.

      If you came in France, sisters wearing the hijjab you would see it a lot, idiot.

    26. Shab... July 6th, 2006 at 3:15 pm

      SUBHAN’ALLAH! hijab is not a religious sign, its an obligation which starts at puberty(around the age of 11-12) so what are girls supposed to do?? postpone wearing hijab till they enter colleges?

      you got some major issues if u think France is a nice country for Muslims and minorities in general.

      you know so much about zidane, what about the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)? or the companions of the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him)?

      And every single French Muslim I have talked to, they have all complained about the French Governmnet. It is the most secular government. There is no freedom in France, like you have in England or Canada or Mexico or Brasil or China. 14-16 year sisters can’t put on the hijab in school and your okay with this?

      SubhanAllah bro. I have read many Muslim organizations in Europe who are against the French ban. I have heard that even some sisters shave of her hair. SubhanAllah brother. Please fear Allah!

    28. Sheraz July 6th, 2006 at 5:17 pm

      In the first place, I’m not a brother but a sister and I live in France. Secondly, my father is an educated man, he studied more than 35 years the Koran and he well educated us so don’t worry you about me and on my religious knowledge.

      You said : “And every single French Muslim I have talked to, they have all complained about the French Governmnet. It is the most secular government.

      I have to complain as well about the French government, naturally than my young sisters cannot wear the hijjab is a problem. But if you asked the question in France, each of us will say to you that to find the work is a bigger problem. In France, there are more social problems than religious. You think constantly of the hijjab while in France the debate is closed.

    29. MilkShaykh July 6th, 2006 at 6:23 pm

      MR, I was just reading something on a forum where someone said that when Zidane played for Juventus (an Italian club) he read the Quran and performed Salah before every game…that seems like a practicing Muslim to me…but I am not sure, I have no prove…he probably still does, Allahu A’lam

      Finding work is not a Muslim problem, but a problem for the unemployed. I’m not talking about that. But if you are talking about then France has A LOT of problems. France is a very racist country. Minorities are treated very poorly there.

      “Finding work is not a Muslim problem, but a problem for the unemployed. I’m not talking about that. But if you are talking about then France has A LOT of problems. France is a very racist country. Minorities are treated very poorly there.”

      Are you stupid, my lil’ boy? Do you understand what I say to you? I didn’t say that to find the work was a religious or muslim problem but that this problem was more important for us moslems, than the religious ban at the school. Since 7/8 month the debate is closed and between us, Moslems, we speak no more about this ban.
      Frankly, are you serious when you say that there is no freedom in France, for nothing in the world I would come/establish me in USA. Many French Muslims will say to you the same thing. Ethnic minorities are treated well in USA? I’m not sure that the Native americans, afro-Americans, the Hispanic, and many Muslims share your opinion.

      Just to remind you that the riots which take place late in the year on 2005. These riots had social and not religious demands, many of the rioters were French from ethnic minorities and Moslems, idiot. But apparently you have difficulties to understand what I say to you lil’ bro.

    32. Radeyah July 7th, 2006 at 6:31 am

      I agree with Sheraz, the U.S in obviously not the best when it comes to treating minorites. With that, I think I have judged the French too harshly.

    33. Shab... July 7th, 2006 at 10:28 am

      just to clarify that when u cant practice ur deen THEN HIJRA BECOMES OBLIGATORY(not optional)..and not being able to wear hijab comes under that.

      america may suck with racism and religious tolerance, but its better then france.

      ok now u want beef callin me lil boy and all. damn. why don’t u make hijra and leave france then. as a muslim in america, we have way more freedom then in many muslim countries.

      are u some kind of modernist? hahaha, cuz it seems like that.

      the only reason why we american muslims make a big deal of the french ban, is because all the french muslims and the muslim world made a big deal about it. i dont see any articles and ‘ulema talking about the other probelms muslims face in france. i guess the french muslims should let it be known that they dont care about the hijab man anymore, which is pretty weird.
