A Muslim Joke!

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

A man was walking across a bridge one day and he saw another man standing on the edge, about to jump off and commit suicide. He immediately ran over and said “Stop! Don’t do it!”

“Why shouldn’t I?” the other said.

The man said, “Well, there’s so much to live for!”

“Like what?”

“Well … are you religious or atheist?”


“Me too!
Are you Muslim, Christian or Jewish?”


“Me too!
Sunni or Shiite?”


“Me too!
Hanafi, Hanbali, Shafi or Maliki?”


“Wow! Me too! Do you follow Sheikh Fulaan al Fullani or Sheikh Kaza Kazah?”

“Sheikh Fulaan al Fullani.”

To which the first man said, “What?!! Die, heretic scum!” and pushed him off.

Ya Haqq!

    Salaams Irving bhai,

    I’ve heard this one before. A funny story, to be sure, but I think we’ve all met people who have some of this attitude in them. May Allah guide us all.

    How right you are Abdur Bhai (Brother). It is a sad sign of religion, this “holier than thou” attitude that separates us instead of bringing us closer together as brothers and sisters. May Allah show us all the right course and guide us to the true heart of all religion… love, mercy, compassion, charity and joy in remembrance of His name.

    Ya Haqq!

    i was just thinking about this the other day. We have so much in common yet we look for one thing that we differ on, and then we nitpick and nitpick, until we’re satisfied we have something worthy to debate in our lives.

    hope all is well with you,

    the other day my CanLit professor asked me if i was Sunni or Shia (this after a discussion on Chrisitian (esp Puritan) vs Muslim concepts of original/sin) in front of the rest of the class. i should have said, “it doesn’t matter.”
    instead, i paused, surprised and then said, “until i was 15 i never really thought about it, but i guess i’m Sunni.”
    i should have said, “it doesn’t matter.”

    Yeah, I can’t decide whether to laugh or cry! It’s sad when ppl are so sectarian, but they make themselves funny somehow too.

  8. rama says:

    Ha ha ha! Many thanks for giving me a hearty laugh! Yes, as the last man said, one does’nt know whether to laugh or cry!
