The Uncanny World of Muslim Memes
Rahat Ahmed

“These two worlds might be at odds with each other, but they can just

make it work.”

Seems clear to me:

Ibn Umar Hadith: The Messenger of Allah (peace be upon him) stated:

Those who make siwar (pictures, images, statues) will be punished on the

Day of Resurrection and it will be said to them: Breathe soul into what

you have created.”

Abu Hurayrah Hadith: “Tell someone to cut off the head of the statue by

your door, so it will look like a tree; tell someone to tear up the

curtain and make it into floor-cushions that will be stepped on…””

Sahih Hadith: “What is lawful is evident and what is unlawful is evident,

and in between them are doubtful matters which many people do not know.

Thus, whoever guards against doubtful matters keeps their religion and

honor blameless, and whoever indulges in doubtful matters, indulges, in

fact, in unlawful matters, just as a shepherd who pastures their animals

round a preserve will soon pasture them in it.”

A man immersed in Western Culture to the point of making funny pictures is not faithful to Islam according to the Hadiths. Are they words from a god or are they not? If not, is it a religion or a hobby?

Once one generation abandons the most difficult rules, the next generation will abandon the next most difficult rules until the Koran is as much a fairy tale.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
