Islam and Ketchup [Quote – 721]

Quote-Unquote: Dr. Pasha on Islam,
Muslims and the World

www.IslamicSolutions.Com


For some people, Islam is like ketchup. Life goes on with or without Islam.

Fries decidedly taste better with ketchup. But fries go on ketchup or no ketchup.

And, luckily, how many brands there are — of ketchup. When you run from one, you can always find refuge in any of the others. For, after all, they all call themselves “ketchup.”

So also Islam.

Every Islamic outfit not only calls itself “Islam,” everybody even has a label that reads:

“The Only Real and Original Islam Ketchup. Directly From the First Tomatoes Ever Made!”
