If a guy ends up eating a haram sausage by mistake does that mean the end of the world is nigh?

Much like the overuse of the word ‘kasam’ and ‘walahi’ - are we are fast becoming a culture that likes to band about phrases for the sake of it?

One of the most infuriating things one can face is meeting the people who claim that qayamat (day of judgement) is coming every single time they are shocked about something.

Look, you can’t use the term if you don’t agree with someone and you certainly can’t use it if someone does something which you deem is non-religious. It just does not work.

It soon loses its appeal and people just think you are coming out with nonsense because you want to sound really religious and in the know.

A whole generation is growing up barking out orders and repeating phrases which they have no knowledge of. They are simply following the actions of those before them without contemplating the seriousness of their words.

It simply demeans the importance of the message would you not say?

It isn’t the day of judgement if the ganday (onions) price goes up. It is not the day of judgement if people rush into a Matalan to grab a trolley. It isn’t the day of judgement if someone mixes loonay (salty) chawal (rice) with Meetay (sweet) chawal. And finally, it isn’t the day of judgement if a woman speaks back at you.

This **** is getting out of hand people.

I think we need to make a stand right here and right now and reclaim these phrases from those who over the **** out of them. If we don’t, we won’t know what is and what isn’t the truth.

Might as well call every third person an Islamophobe and someone else a Kufr whilst we are at it.

The problem is, we have people who should never ever…and when I say never, I mean NEVER…have been given access to WhatsApp or any form of social media. Normal folk should be permitted to sign on and everyone else must register.

It is like giving a moulvi a bag of meat samosas and then telling him not to eat it. Brother is going to eat it.

End of story.

Disclaimer: In no way is the writer in any way trying to insinuate moulvi’s love samosay. She is merely stating that some brothers like their samosay more than others.
