Muslims came to America. No, change it to: Allah brought Muslims to America.
And to other parts of the West.
To breathe the life-giving air of freedom and opportunity as they had never done before for generations in their own natural habitat of hereditary monarchy, feudalism, dictatorship, tribalism and rampant corruption.
Visit the Aayat Karimah:
Wa Kuntum Amwaatan Fa-Ahyaakum!
I think it is an Aayat of the Qur'an. Will someone please check and make sure.
Paraphrase of the Aayah:
"You were basically lifeless and he brought you back to life."
"You were dead, he gave you life."
Dazzled by this new life, Muslims in Europe and America did all kinds of things -- except, some would say, be faithful to Islam and carry out their God-given mandate of taking the Qur'an to every home and heart that needs it -- and which one does not?
So, the more enterprising among Immigrant and First Generation Muslims, especially those with a penchant for a bit of hustling, launched all kinds of projects they called Halal: Halal this, Halal that, and Halal Everything Else!
Halal stuff of every kind rained on God's earth like Manna, including things like Halal Booking -- whatever that means.
But one thing I have not seen. Unless, of course, I missed it somehow.
That is why I am calling on the new generation of Islamic Hustlers in the West to wake up to the possibilities of Halal Entertainment.
Europe and America are all about Entertainment, are they not? So, how can you let this cash cow slip through your fingers like this?
And, remember, you can always get a Jewish Kosher Authority to certify your entertainment product "Halal" for a fee.
I am amazed how nobody ever thought of this before!
