POEM: Funny Things About Muslims - Is it Really?


Funny how a $100 "looks" so big when taken to mosque, but so small when taken to the mall.

Funny how long it takes to pray "TARAWEEH" for an
hour, but how quickly a team plays 90 minutes of soccer.

Funny how long a couple of hours spent at the mosque
seem, but how short they are when watching a movie.

Funny how people can't think of a "DUA" to say when
they pray, but don't have difficulty thinking of things to talk about to a friend.

Funny how people get thrilled when a football game goes into extra time, but complain when a "KHUTBAH" is longer than the regular time.

Funny how hard it is to read a "verse" in the Holy Quran, but how easy it is to read 100 pages of a bestselling novel.

Funny how people want to get a front seat at any game or concert, but scramble to sit in the back of a mosque.

Funny how hard it is for people to learn the simple shariah, well enough to tell others, but how simple it is for the same people to understand and repeat gossip.

Funny how people believe what the newspaper says, but question what is written in the Quran.

Funny how everyone wants to go to heaven provided they do not have to believe, think, say or do anything.

Funny how you can send a thousand 'jokes' through e-mail and they spread like wildfire, but when you start sending messages regarding Allah, people think twice about sharing.

mashaAllah very well said.May Allah help us all to be better muslims. Ameen.

Many of these are true, but I mean I don't know why these things are surprising or should be looked down at in such a pessimistic manner. This is the struggle of the Dunya; pushing away all the things that don't matter. What are some practical solutions for each of these "funny" struggles?
