Aman Ali – Hijabs and Palestine

Comedian Aman Ali has released a hilarious music video entitled Hijabs and Palestine. It’s a parody of the “typical nasheed”. He’s going to be at ISNA performing some comedy for all those ISNA 2007-goers (I’m not going).

Here are the lyrics:

Nightclubs are Hell

A non-Muslim, yup a non-Muslim, talks about how clubs are wack. Send this to all your clubbin’ Muslim friends (yes I know you know some because I know some).

Here are my favorite parts of the article:

Clubs are despicable. Cramped, overpriced furnaces with sticky walls and the latest idiot theme tunes thumping through the humid air so loud you can’t hold a conversation, just bellow inanities at megaphone-level. And since the smoking ban, the masking aroma of cigarette smoke has been replaced by the overbearing stench of crotch sweat and hair wax.

Clubs are such insufferable dungeons of misery, the inmates have to take mood-altering substances to make their ordeal seem halfway tolerable. This leads them to believe they “enjoy” clubbing. They don’t. No one does. They just enjoy drugs.

Alhamdulillah for Islam and alhamdulillah I never went to a club! Here is the full article:

Nightclubs are hell. What’s cool or fun about a thumping, sweaty dungeon full of posing idiots?

Busta Rhymes is Muslim!

And not a 5 percenter. Proof: Busta praises God instead of himself. Five percenters believe man is god.

May Allah guide him and forgive him. Ameen!


T-Pain is Muslim? Update: T-Pain says he’s Muslim!

T-PainI don’t know if this is a good thing or a bad thing for Muslims in America, but the R&B singer T-Pain is supposedly a Muslim. His real name Faheem Najm. His parents are also Muslims according to Imam Wikipedia. Also confirmed by one of my good friends who’s a hip hop head and a good Muslim brother, Afnanymous.

T-Pain is on the Konvict music label who happens to be run by our dear brother Akon, who’s also Muslim. May Allah (swt) guide these brothers and forgive them. Ameen.

Well all I can say is, he should do a remix, “I’m in love with a nikabiiii” & “Ima buy you a tasbihhh” ahaha

UPDATE:

T-Pain, like rappers Busta Rhymes and Lupe Fiasco, is also a Muslim. What is it like being a Muslim in America?

“It’s like being any other person,” he says. “I’m still a person, a human being, no matter what religion I am.”

But has the war on terror changed perceptions about Muslim faith?

“People don’t even know,” T-Pain says. “Me, Busta Rhymes, Lupe Fiasco – they don’t even know we are Muslim. People think a Muslim has to have a turban or a big beard. It’s stupid.”

Lupe Fiasco recites Surah al-Fatiha at a Hip-Hop Concert

Lupe Fiasco recited Surah al-Fatiha for his deceased father (may Allah grant him jannah) at a Hip-Hop Concert in Atlanta, Georgia:

I love how the crowd was shouting “Allah hu Akbar”. Anyways, may Allah (swt) accept his good deeds and guide him on the straight path. Ameen. This is positive dawah, but I don’t know if it’s permissible dawah, and Allah knows best.


Minarets – A threat to Switzerland

Apparently, Switzerland is scared of tall cylinder domed-top buildings. This is the funniest yet saddest thing I have ever read. The government of Switzerland is full of a bunch of paranoid freaks who are scared of minarets.

They claim the minaret is not necessary for worship, but is rather a symbol of Islamic law, and as such incompatible with Switzerland’s legal system.

What a load of rubbish! This is like saying pizza represents Italian extremism. It’s not necessary for eating, but rather a symbol of the Italian mafia and fascism of Benito Mussolini and such it is incompatible with the freedom and democracy of America. Okay, maybe it was a bad example, but you get the point.

“We don’t have anything against Muslims,” said Oskar Freysinger, member of parliament for the Swiss People’s Party.

“But we don’t want minarets. The minaret is a symbol of a political and aggressive Islam, it’s a symbol of Islamic law. The minute you have minarets in Europe it means Islam will have taken over.”

LOL, and that’s all I have to say.

I’m still a big hip hop head (astagfirAllah) so I found this pretty good song by the rapper Jin from New York. It’s a tribute song to to the Virginia Tech Tragedy. You might be wondering why I am posting so much about this incident. Well it has greatly affected me in numerous ways. That’s all I can say.
