30 days as a Muslim



  1. i saw this the other day,
    and i think its interesting .. but again it got some bad messages about islam ...

  2. I think this is great!
    I don't think it has any bad messages. It talks to the west in the way people think. They want someone like them who actually "tried it" and came back to tell the story. That's the base of Do-it-yourself channel or Travel Channel or Extreme whatever show, or trading spouses. This is the kind of media items that Americans would listen to.

    For one, it shows you how painful it was for even a white American dressed as a Muslim to get people to sign a petition! Do you know that even pee-smelling homeless people would get more people to sign petitions than what this guy saw

    I think there is a positive message in there...

    Thanks Jad for sharing, I'll pass this along to couple of newly converted brothers at work.

  3. I think it almost a year and a half old.But one thing dadan,why do we always look for bad things about islam? Did you ask youself this question?This guy did a good job but he chose the wrong family to stay with, by the way they are shia from detroit.. I can assure you that we are the ones "hurting" islam not them, each action has a reaction, can a muslim do a program on being a christian for 30 days?

  4. Qwaidar,

    Do you know that even pee-smelling homeless people would get more people to sign petitions

    Yes, obviously. Everybody knows all Muslim petitions amount to "So, sign here if you think it's cool we kill the Jews" - no matter what is written on the actual petition, that is the message it contains between the lines.

    And I'm only being half sarcastic. If Muslims want to change that perception, maybe they should start pushing issues that aren't so damned hostile.

    can a muslim do a program on being a christian for 30 days?

    Why not? There are plenty of Christians in Lebanon, Egypt and Jordan that could serve as host families. Go for it.

  5. Craig,
    I was being half sarcastic;), I just wanted to send a message that "we" as muslims always look for what we don't like-hidden messages to hurt islam- while we forget that we are the ones that "hurt" islam by not moving to condemn the acts of islam hijackers!!

    And I think the hate thing goes both ways so you can't just blame muslims, Once you act like the people you hate then you are no more "Free and just country"..

  6. Cool!
    But Gosh he is so ignorant ..after all this didn't you hear his interview at the radio station??

  7. I didn't like the part in the end where he decided right away to have a drink..

    but the episode as a whole was mediocre.. also it would have been better if he lived in an Arabic family.. but I think he was scared so they put him a neutral Pakistani home.

  8. Reminds me of myself back there. Living in a place where you're constantly watched, and having to always explain yourself was one hell of a strain. And this is from somebody who doesn't even believe in Islam. But I remember those weird looks at my mother who wears the Hijab. That wasn't nice at all.

    The thing is Americans trust their media so much, that they absorb whatever is thrown at them. I disagree with you Craig, American Muslims, out of all people, do not support chopping up Jews. Coming from somebody who was one of them, they just want to be left alone. The way that you would want to be left alone.

اهم التطورات العلمية في العام ٢٠١٩

Dear Microsoft : It's over. Our relationship just hasn't been working for a while, and now, this is it. I'm leaving you for another Operating system. I know this isn't a good time--you're down with yet another virus. I do hope you feel better soon--really, I do--but I, too, have to move on with my life. Fact is, in the entire time I've known you, you seem to always have a virus or an occasional worm. You should really see a doctor. That said, I just can't continue with this relationship any longer. I know you say you'll fix things, that next time it'll go better--but that's what you said the last time--and the time before that. Each time I believed you. Well, not any longer. You cheater! The truth is there's nothing more you can say to make things better. I know about your secret marriage to patent. You say you two are not seeing each other anymore, but I just don't believe it. You say you can live without patent, and I've heard that

Saddam's novel to be published next week

AMMAN, Jordan: Saddam Hussein's family will publish next week a novel written by the ousted Iraqi leader before the US-led war on Iraq, his daughter said on Friday. "Ekhroj minha ya mal'un" whose title could be translated into "Get out, damned one" tells the story of a man called Ezekiel who plots to overthrow a town's sheik, but is defeated in his quest by the sheik's daughter and an Arab warrior. The story is apparently a metaphor for a Zionist-Christian plot against Arabs and Muslims. Ezekiel is meant to symbolize the Jews. Raghad Saddam Hussein said her father finished the novel on March 18, 2003 -- a day before the US-led war on Iraq began -- and had expressed a wish to publish the book under his name. The three other novels he wrote were simply signed "Its author." "It was my father's will to publish this book," Raghad said in a telephone interview.
