There is no fun in Islam…

There is no mercy either:

Saudi comedy provokes anger with episode in which woman marries four husbands

Call it interfaith cooperation of sorts, as steaming Saudi Sunnis prove the Shi’ite Ayatollah Khomeini’s assertion that:

Allah did not create man so that he could have fun. The aim of creation was for mankind to be put to the test through hardship and prayer. An Islamic regime must be serious in every field. There are no jokes in Islam. There is no humor in Islam. There is no fun in Islam. There can be no fun and joy in whatever is serious.”

Christians cannot be portrayed in a positive way:

A popular Saudi holiday sitcom has drawn the ire of conservative clerics over an episode portraying Arab Christians in a positive light after the kingdom sought to sell itself as a leader of dialogue between faiths.

And that’s drawn fire as well, with Reuters reporting:

“A Muslim is allowed to praise only the one true religion — Islam,” said Eissa al-Ghaith, a judge at the Justice Ministry, in remarks carried by al-Madina newspaper on Sunday.

Independent Islamic scholar Abdulwahab al-Salhi said the “indecent lot of ‘Tash Ma Tash’ … used drama to destroy Muslims’ stable religious principles by portraying Christians as believers and not apostates.”

Happy interfaithing!

  1. No jokes in Islam? How about:

    How many Muslims does it take to change a light bulb?
    One to hold it.
    One to read instructions from the Koran as to how.
    One to tell you the bulb is only intended for peaceful use.
    One to sue you for claiming a Muslim didn’t invent it first.

  2. That’s a good joke, Preposteroso.

    How about;

    How can you tell that a Muzlim man is horny?

    He’s out shopping for goats.
