Someone I met today

I got a call this morning from my colleague. She was busy with something else and wanted me to consult someone on some sort of investment he had in mind. I told the security man to let him in. In walks this short guy, with long hair to his back, fuzzy beard, a big-ass red head wear (ghutra) with no black top to keep it in place (uqal,) since it was invented after the prophet walked the earth, and short, dirty clothes (thoub.)

He took a seat, and after the prolonged hellos and how-are-you's, he went on to explain that he was interested in getting people's money and investing it. "Well, how?" I asked. He explained with very primal terms what he intended. I walked out and brought him back some standard conditions and consultation papers about Investment Banks since they were the only vehicle that can legally act as he explained. He looks at them and says"why is everything around here in english? I went to the Imam university.. I never learned English."

I go back to explaining different investment types, and he interrupts "You keep on saying end of the year, end of the year... Which one do you mean? Arabic or english?" Gregorian calender you caveman!! I explained that we use the satanic calendar, so he was like " what are we now, 7-7 ?" I was like "more like 9-aug." Very well. He finished explaining his bogus investment plans and asked "are you busy? I see you always looking at the door?" Honestly, I was nervous. I cant hold a straight face anymore. It's like avoiding mentioning a white elephant sitting in the living room.
He finished his session, and said "Can I ask you a personal question?" I thought he was going to ask about my Saudi Surname or something of that sort. I said Fine. He was like, its personal, wont you feel offended? I was wondering what he was up to. He was like "Are you sunni?" I was Shocked! I managed to squeak a yes.. He was like "yeah.. you look like one. Are there any rafitha around here?" Rafitha is a racist slang term used by wahhabis to label Shi'ites. It means rejects- rejecting true islam.
I was still shocked... I tried to say something... all I could manage was... We dont have this sort of stuff around here.... We are all one in front of God.

He said "No we're not!".... Gave me his back, and left.

Ouch! I personally feel so bad for you. We should take you out to cheer you up!!

Joker.. don't let this demoralise you.. they aren't all the same.

Let me tell you a funny story which happened to me - BEFORE I GOT MARRIED.

I had this ape following me from one place to the other, asking me out on a DATE, with his beard, flip flops, dirty thobe and lice... and I kept avoiding him all the time .. hehehehehe

Like I would be caught dead dating a bearded man with THREE wives and a dozen or two children!

And then I really had to draw a line. It stopped being funny and I was starting to get freaked out so I told him: Look... I am Shia!!! Boo ... Go away! hehehehe

And he said: Good! I can marry you and convert you to Islam. hehehehe

Joker. You bring back funny memories!

Just in case you didnt figure out on your own, that person was saudi.

Today a co-worker that has an office at the corridor said that the above-mentioned gentleman passed by her office and asked god for forgiveness since she came into view.

Do you read what the teachers of the Iman school keep spewing out?

They have their own newsletters, and they said that writers like May Zyada, Naguib Mahfouz, etc, shouldn't be taught in schools since they're Westernized pieces of shit, basically.

I went to the Al Bayan school, which is a few feet away from the Iman school, and while waiting for the bus to come pick up, those irritating assclowns would walk up to me and go:

"Wear your hijab."

"Go away."

"Your school is really bad, it seperates you from your religion."

"I don't care."

"Listen to me. You are at an age now where it's either now or never, if you don't wear your hijab sooner rather than later, then God will count this as an unforgivable sin."

"I'm not interested in your tunnel-view of Islam. Go away."

"Fine. May God throw you in hell."

Everything is black and white for these suckers. When we were waiting for our bus, a bunch of girls walked out of the Iman school. 3 minutes later, they realized that there were guys in our group, and the girls were screaming while running back inside. What the hell is their problem? They're covered from head to toe, and men still aren't allowed to see them? Even if they wear turbans, they'd run back.

"Oh my god! He could tell that I'm about 5 feet high! He could see the shape of my head!"

What do they teach these kids in that lame excuse for a school?

I live in a Shia village. I think we must be the only Sunni family in the area.

I never have any problems except for when I go to the mosque. Women stand outside and ask whether I'm a Sunni or a Shiite, and then pull me aside and start a discussion about how the Koran is not our final authority and what not. "Hassan and Hussain are just important as Mohammed (saw)," etc.

Now, I never go to the mosque, and neither do any of my Sunni friends in Sanad. It's not the "West" that seperates us from Islam the way these shit-stirrers claim, it's their ignorant mentality.

I personally can't wait until some beardo walks up to me with some "enlightened advice". And I know it WILL happen, what with the way things are going in Bahrain (Virtue squads etc..).

Yes, I look forward to the day. I can tell you what I say will not be easy on the ear!

"so you stopped going to the mosque because people initiated discussions with you?!"

Nope. I stopped going to a PARTICULAR mosque in my area because people wouldn't let you pray in peace.

Slight difference.

And it isn't a normal discussion. They're basically yapping about why my version of Islam is skewed.

A good swift kick in the "mommy daddy button" would put this ape in his place and it might help insure he stops breeding. At least for a day or two....
