Although I am a Muslim Sunni American and he is a Muslim Shia Iranian, I have to say that this letter was very good and respectful towards the people of America. This is what he said comparing America and Iran:
Both our nations are God-fearing, truth-loving and justice-seeking, and both seek dignity, respect and perfection.
Both greatly value and readily embrace the promotion of human ideals such as compassion, empathy, respect for the rights of human beings, securing justice and equity, and defending the innocent and the weak against oppressors and bullies.
We are all inclined towards the good, and towards extending a helping hand to one another, particularly to those in need.
We all deplore injustice, the trampling of peoples’ rights and the intimidation and humiliation of human beings.
He ends the letter with the words of Allah:
“But those who repent, have faith and do good may receive Salvation. Your Lord, alone, creates and chooses as He will, and others have no part in His choice; Glorified is God and Exalted above any partners they ascribe to Him.” (28:67-68)
Hell hath no fury like an engineering graduate scorned. Thatâ€™s what happened last night when Aman Ahmedâ€™s marriage proposal was declined after a long and rigorous engagement process.
â€œI donâ€™t get it,â€ said Ahmed (24), â€œIâ€™m so religious. Iâ€™m so frigginâ€™ good looking. I secured a wicked engineering job. Her parents love me. I had it in the BAG man.â€ Ahmed was one of the most sought out after brothers in the MSA and it is well known that many sisters actually joined Centennial MSA just to work with him.
Ahmed stated that the pictures were put on there by accident and it was during his ‘bad days’. â€œHey we all did stupid stuff in university. I just happen to upload all my sinful behaviour and leave all the pictures tagged for the world to see. I don’t think people have the right to judge me though… I’m still a good guy mashAllah.â€
Other bizarre pictures of Ahmed featured him tackling a cheerleader, licking a non-Zabiha hot dog and an interesting close-up of him shaving his legs and eyebrows to join a fraternity. â€œYeah, I got a lot of negative feedback about that but my legs are silky smooth now mashAllahâ€
Aman is also known for harassing people to join various petition groups. â€œI usually spam people about things like Palestine being delisted as a location in Facebook and how there is some sort of Zionist conspiracy with Facebook. I probably annoy the hell out of people but I know I’m the greatest social activist in the world thanks to Facebookâ€
The final nail on the coffin for Khalil however, was when she noticed that Aman created a new controversial Facebook group called â€œI met my future in-laws and they suckâ€ and invited all his friends to join it. Aman declined to comment as to why he created such an open and public group on Facebook, especially since he invited other members of the Khalil family into the group.
Soon after all this, Wafia Khalil closed down her “I want to marry Aman Ahmed” group.
This is dedicated to the brothers and sisters who posted comments regarding the Mawlid in Jeddah.
First of all, DUH! I know what the wasabis (the new term MR will use to refer to “those people”) think about mawlid. I also know what the deobandis think. The deobandis don’t really attack and condemn there brothers and sisters that do it, they just say they don’t do it and they believe it is wrong. On the other hand (as you can see the comments in the previous post), the wasabis go on an all out attack with the bida’ machine guns: bidabidabidabidabidabidabidabidabida.
I love the wasabis for the sake of Allah. In fact they do an amazing job in dawah, mashaAllah bringing people to Islam! Allah hu akbar! I also I’m very good friends with wasabis. (Shout out to all my wasabi brothers, love you guys man!) But some wasabi’s need to relax and realize that many people stick to what they believe in firmly.
In conclusion, wasabis from AlMaghrib Institute are good examples. Some of you wasabis should talk to the AlMaghrib wasabis. They are good brothers and sisters and they understand and realize that Muslims are different across the world and not everyone is either blue or yellow. Muslims come in all different colors and shades and wasabis need to realize that hatin on everyone won’t do you any good.
So to my wasabi brothers and sisters, start smiling! 😀

BBC news’s documentary entitled Boyz Allowed – The New Voices of Islam discusses the nasheed group Native Deen & the Muslim boy band, 786 Boys, trip to the UK for there concert. I never liked 786 boys from the beginning when I saw them at ISNA back in 2000 (or 2001? I can’t remember.). Native Deen rules! Hands down! I love Native Deen, even the old school MYNA Raps mix tapes they came out with. The video shows how 786 Boys weren’t allowed to perform and they were kicked out of the concert. I agree with the organizers. They would bring more fitna then good to the concert. I’ve seen the reaction of the sisters to them. That’s one reason why I never put there songs on the MR Radio, because I don’t agree with them at all. This is just my personal opinion.
