Shout out to Allah!

Allah is in the house!. Funny new blog, who says you can't have fun with Islam? (via Aziz).

Shit dog, check this out, yo:

One billion strong, all year long,
Prayers to Allah even in Hong Kong
Can never be wrong if we read the Qur'an
Cause it's never been changed since day one.
Others may brag, say that we lag,
But they donít know all the power we had
The power we had, the power we have
So Muslimoon donít you ever be sad
Take many looks, go read their books,
You'll see all the facts that your friends overlook,
So always be proud, you can say it out loud
I am proud to be down with the Muslim crowd!

I'm so blessed to be with them...
I'm so blessed to be with them...

They look at me strangely
Like I emit some type of energy
That draws Kafirs - disbelievers towards me.
Thinking to themselves what makes him different from me.
Is it the hair, the clothes or maybe the food he eats,
What could it be, that make thug cats, stand at attention,
His demeanor's peaceful but on his face it's clearly written that,
This aint the sorta brother caught up in this and that
Running streets carrying heat yo he aint into that.
This brother must live by some type of criteria,
To make it to the average cat quite superior
So maybe one of these days I get near enough
Play like Nancy Drew on this mystery and clear it up.
So listen up if you think this is strange,
Cause these the type of thoughts that use to run through a new Shahada's brains
and I bear witness to the one with 99 names, InshAllah I will always remain.

I'm so blessed to be with them...
I'm so blessed to be with them...

Donít know about you, I know about me,
I'm proud because I'm rolling Islamically
Everywhere I see, even on TV,
People talking trash about the way I be.
But what they all hate, is if we get great
Cause we're the only ones with our heads on straight
Donít ever frown, or your head looking down,
If you read the Qur'an you're the best in the town.
Y'all have doubt say- we have no clout
But-within-a-few years see how we've come about.
Were back on the scene, The number-one deen,
I'm proud to be down with the Muslimeen!

there's an extremely strange development in the muslim world ... Shiites are displaying photos of imam ali like as if he was jesus christ... considering that idolatory is banned in islam... and images of the top guys are banned... this seems to be some kind of cataclysmic shift in attitude... http://www.nytimes.com/reuters/international/international-iraq.html

not that cataclysmic, don't confuse wahabbis with everyone else. turkish and persian versions of islam have always been more photogenic.
