Being Muslim and Politically Incorrect
Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,
In some of my videos, I will make fun of the cultural things we do that take us away from our Deen with the hopes that people will become shy of doing such actions in the future. If I could only get a dollar for each time a wave of Hijabs go up and eyes go down when the someone starts off the wedding ceremony with the recitation of the Holy Qu'ran. You would think the believe that Allah (swt) is only watching us whenever the Qu'ran is being recited.
One wedding I went to, the girl didn't have her hijab nearby so she put a napkin on her head. I'm thinking to myself, you must be kidding? Am I the only person noticing this? Maybe this type of thing happens so much that we have become immune to it or maybe nobody has the courage to bring it up because they don't want to be blacklisted from the Muslim wedding list. I've been one of those people and then one day, I didn't care anymore about being politically correct and that's why I brought up this and the many other issues in my videos. It's funny because the wedding that starts off with a recitation of powerful Surah reminding us of our Deen, ends with people dancing like there is no tomorrow on the dance floor. Anyways, my point isn't about the weddings but rather the overall numbness that we have adopted with it comes to certain Islamic issues.
I think its important to bring up issues but you have to do it in a specific way. My strategy is to bring up certain issues in lighthearted way with the hopes that it will capture the attention of the people InshAllah.
