An outlet for the many voices in my head on being muslim, running and my love affair with jellybabies


i wrote this clerihew in jest. it doesnt have a title yet. comments and death threats welcome

Esteemed ulema
Commercialising fatwa
Isn’t it fantastic?
To be king of the bombastic!

Mirror mirror on the wall
Who’s the most pious of them all?
How can you go wrong?
When your beard is two fistfuls long!

    Comments and death threats, eh? I've received both and the latter is generally rather unpleasant. Written in jest but in response to anything in particular?

  2. Slms Ify. I cant imagine it being pleasant receiving death threats:(i thought I'd write the poem exactly for the sort of people that get threatened when muslim women raise their voices and demand simple things like…eh, a voice in the ummah, decent prayer space, 'permission' to attend Eid Salaah…that sort of thing. keep up the fight!
