Baba Ali on Billboards? Yeah on a bunch of them in memphis!

Bismillah ar-Rahmaan ar-Raheem,

I really hope people don't think that I'm on a wanted list or something. Usually when you see "Have you seen these men" on something, you really don't want your pic to be attached to it but in this case, I think its kinda cool :) The organization who is putting this weekend’s event together decided to go all out and put my face and the other two comedians (Asif Ali & Aman Ali) on a bunch of billboards in the city. I really hope we don't get hassled by Memphis police and airport personnel.

During the 1960s, the city was at the center of civil rights issues. I'll be performing with the other two Muslim Funnymentalists this Saturday inshAllah and I just hope that the crowd doesn't confuse Funnymentalist with Fundamentalist. I'm interested in finding out the demographics of the audience for this event. Either way, I think its going to make an interesting blog post.

Wow, that's pretty cool bro - you know you've made it big when your is on a billboard, am I right? ;-) Um, bro I think you forgot to insert the world "put" in front of "face" in that first line there bro so it reads "go all out and PUT my face . . ." Anyways, you probably wrote this in a rush . . yes will make for an interesting post insha'allah! Peace out!

laught at muslims sound like mock muslims... which is not very funny for muslims, but very funny for kuffar

The idea of the billboard was not mine. Actually, I didn't even know until recently that there was even a billboard. Personally, I would choose something different than "Laugh at Muslims" as the URL but that wasn't my call. I wasn't involved regarding the marketing, advertising, or any ideas related to the billboard.

I'm guessing their strategy was to start controversy with the hopes of getting non-Muslims to the event. We'll see if it backfires on them or not. Allah Alim

Hey, I actually I have some questions I saw a videa of yours on youtube. I am a Christian and am embarrassed as to what some 'ignorant' people are saying about Muslims, Jews, and Christians. I Understand that our beliefs are different but we also share alot of history...I would like your permission to maybe help with some misunderstandings...not in an attempt to 'convert' anyone, but perhaps to help enlighten people about these religions...
