  1. Aslam

    Yes ! That was quick. With all episodes at once too ! Thank you.

  2. Priya

    Fred Tupper is a fool. Are people really so gullable? or is he doing it on purpose?

  3. Mostafa

    I think brushing while facing Kabba isn’t too far-fetched. We do the Wudu facing Kabba and before doing that we can brush while facing Kabba as well.

  4. Steve

    It’s not all your little rules that get us upset. It is when you expect us to accommodate all your little rules, that’s what really gets us pissed.

    For example, I don’t care if you face Mecca while brushing your teeth, but if the government changes the sinks in all public wash rooms and other government buildings to face Mecca in order to accommodate Muslims, then that gets us upset (can you imagine the cost of that).

    How and where, when and if you eat gooseberries, that’s your business. But if you said that for example gooseberries can’t be served on the school menu because its offensive to Muslims, then we are going to get pissed.

    So, yeah, I guess we need to see this as a comedy and give it some leeway because of that but those rules (even if they were true which I know they aren’t) wouldn’t really upset us.

    What was the concern about fruit? That Muslims were hoarding all the fresh fruit? Perhaps if we felt the actions of Muslims were harming us by preventing us from having fruit, that would get us upset, but then for us to be upset about that either the price of the fruit would have had to risen or people would have had to find out that there were a lack of fresh fruit to buy at the stores.

  5. Steve

    Priya people are even more gullible.

    Use the word “change” enough time and they will make you into a god!

    You gave me fortune
    You gave me fame
    You me power in your gods name
    I’m every person you need to be
    I’m the cult of personality
    Look into my eyes, what do you see?
    Cult of personality
    I know your anger, I know your dreams
    I’ve been everything you want to be
    I’m the cult of personality

  6. Fred Tupper is what the liberals think a radio talk show host is like. That is because they don’t listen to such shows.

    In reality they don’t spend such time talking about such trival matters as how and if Muslims eat gooseberries. They spend their time exposing government waste and corruptions and things like that.

    There are some very good programs that I recommend.

    And they can be heard over the Internet.

    @Mostafa

    I dont know where you got the rule of facing mecca while doing wudu its a false fact.

    also its not true you dont face mecca while brushing your teeth just to let you know.

    Thanks for this episode.

  8. I think brushing while facing Kabba isn’t too far-fetched. We do the Wudu facing Kabba and before doing that we can brush while facing Kabba as well.

    Whoa, since when did we perform wudu facing Mecca?

  9. Here’s Steve, both posts in reference to Fred:

    Priya people are even more gullible.

    Fred Tupper is what the liberals think a radio talk show host is like. That is because they don’t listen to such shows.

    In just two comments, he’s managed to contradict himself AND stereotype liberals.

    “I can see Alaska from my house!”

  10. Russia*

    though I wouldn’t be surprised…

  11. Steve

    The first post wasn’t in reference to Fred. Yeah, I know she was referencing Fred but I took her statement and turned it around to make a comment referencing something else.

    And about what you are referencing the truth is that Palin isn’t running for President. She is running for vice-President. But still she has more experience than the guy the other side has put up as President – a man who has been in the Senate only two years and most of that time he has spent running for office. And again he is running for President, not Vice President.

    And yeah, being from Alaska would give one a perspective that other Americans would lack.

    By the way when you just look at values, Palin’s would be much, much closer to yours than “the Ones”. Even if he is really a Muslim he sure hasn’t in his public record supported the values that strong Christians and strong Muslims actually do share. In that sense Palin is more of a Muslim than “the One” will ever be. I know she is a Christian but the point is that strong Christians and strong Muslims want lots of the same things when it comes to issues of values and the culture war. Or do Muslims believe in Gay Marriage now? I don’t think so.

    But Obama’s Black so got to support the Black right?

  12. You should listen to these people more.

    http://radiotime.com/channel/c_57917/Conservative.aspx

    They never make unsubstantiated statements.

    Some of these people make statements that may seem extreme but then they go back and fill in the details. Michael Savage is one of these people. He has said some things very critical of Muslims but then if you listen long enough he will also say how most Muslims are very good people.

  13. But Obama’s Black so got to support the Black right?

    Thanks for making a completely obscene judgment without even knowing who I am, Steve.

    I don’t CARE that Obama’s black. I don’t CARE that Palin’s Christian. And I don’t care which one of them are Muslim.

    For the love of GOD!

    And everyone knows Michael Savage is gay. It was obvious after his novel…

    Don’t try to post that he isn’t because I don’t care about whether or not he is or isn’t. It’s completely beside the point.

  14. I don’t even know why Steve’s accusing me for being for Obama because he’s black. I’M not even black why would I care…

  15. Palin’s views aren’t close to mine AT ALL. I don’t believe that creationism should be taught in public schools (it’s not a SCIENCE), I don’t want my state to get rid of the rights of gays to marry (Islamic law is for MUSLIMS to follow–the USA isn’t all Muslim and if gay people are getting married [a PERSONAL matter] here it’s none of my business to tell them they can’t), and if abortion was made illegal… well hangers are cheap.

  16. And about what you are referencing the truth is that Palin isn’t running for President. She is running for vice-President.

    She can easily BECOME president. Plus, she doesn’t even know what a vice president does.

    But fine.

    “I would never delay the World Series for an infomercial.”

    I can already see where his priorities lie.

  17. Baseball is important in America. It is a strong part of our cultural heritage.

    I wonder why Obama doesn’t understand that.

  18. “Palin’s views aren’t close to mine AT ALL. I don’t believe that creationism should be taught in public schools (it’s not a SCIENCE), I don’t want my state to get rid of the rights of gays to marry (Islamic law is for MUSLIMS to follow–the USA isn’t all Muslim and if gay people are getting married [a PERSONAL matter] here it’s none of my business to tell them they can’t), and if abortion was made illegal… well hangers are cheap.”

    In all honestly, you don’t sound like much of a Muslim to me. Surely your Iman doesn’t hold such views (though he is probably going to vote for “the One” despite that).

    By the way, gays do I have the right to marry, though I don’t know why they would want to since Marriage is an Union between one adult male human and one adult female human.

  19. Gays do have the right to marry though I doubt they would want to since marriage is the Union between one adult male human and one adult female human.

    What they don’t have the right to do is have civil sanctification over a relationship that is an abomination.

    Even there though they can have their own none binding ceremony and also file private legal documentation giving each “partner” power of attorney over the other.

  20. “I don’t even know why Steve’s accusing me for being for Obama because he’s black. I’M not even black why would I care…”

    You shouldn’t care but many non-whites see having a black as president as sticking it to the whites who they hate so much.

    And for the liberal whites this is another way for them to make amends for slavery even though looking through Obama’s family tree his family were never victims of slavery. In fact they benefited from it. On Obama’s white mother’s side of his family tree they owned slaves, and on Obama’s Kenyan father’s side it is quite likely that they were the ones who caught the people to be shipped over as slaves. They were quite likely slave traders.

  21. Michael Savage never wrote a novel. Does this come from the same source that said that Sarah Palin tried to get Harry Potter banned from the local library two years before the first book was even written?

  22. Are you kidding me?! Not only did Michael Savage write a book–he wrote SEVENTEEN of them, under his previous name Michael A. Weiner.

  23. Steve

    And they were all non-fiction. No novels among them. All those books were on on natural health and nutrition. He obtained a Ph.D. in 1978 from the University of California, Berkeley, in nutritional ethnomedicine.

    And he is married with two children, a daughter and a son; his son, Russell, is the founder of the company that produces the Rockstar energy drink.

  24. Of course they were non fiction. Why would I use a fictional book to point out his homosexuality?

    He wrote one that was semi-autobiographical, and it included how he struggled and won the fight against his desires for men.

  25. In all honestly, you don’t sound like much of a Muslim to me.

    I totally missed earlier that he said this because I don’t even bother read half his things anymore.

    You would know wouldn’t you, Steve?

    I don’t really care what I sound like to you. If you’re too thick to see that making abortions illegal would cause teens to kill themselves trying stump the baby out, or how heartless it is tossing a woman in the midst of her own emotional outrage because she’s just lost her child behind bars, you go ahead and live happily in your pretty made up reality about how perfect the world would be if Palin had her way. I’m not a fan of abortion but at least I live in the real world.

    Abortions don’t require doctors; a woman can abort her child herself and if she’s desperate enough to do so she WILL–making them illegal would only make things worse.

    As for creationism being taught in schools as a science… I’m not even going to get started on it.

    Homosexuals can marry whoever they want–it doesn’t affect my (nonexistent) marriage. I found it ridiculous when people say it’s a threat to traditional marriage–what’s traditional marriage anyway? Isn’t that when your parents traded you for a sheep and two goats?

  26. And they were all non-fiction. No novels among them.

    FYI novels don’t have to be fiction. The Story of My Life is autobiographical and considered a novel.

  27. I wouldn’t live the lifestyles of abortionists and homosexuals but that gives me no right to oppress them. They’re making personal decisions.

  28. You shouldn’t care but many non-whites see having a black as president as sticking it to the whites who they hate so much.

    Are you white, Steve? Cause I don’t think it’s the white part they dislike…

  29. Susan

    Baseball is important in America. It is a strong part of our cultural heritage.
    I wonder why Obama doesn’t understand that.

    I wonder why as well. It sounds like you’re implying that he’s un-American. I’m not particularly fond of baseball either. Does that make me un-American?

    Now, why is he un-American, Steve? Because his family didn’t come from the Mayflower? Are you aware of what you’re implying with that one simple statement?

  30. Susan

    In all honestly, you don’t sound like much of a Muslim to me. Surely your Iman doesn’t hold such views (though he is probably going to vote for “the One” despite that).

    Excuuuuse me? I’m not the one being referred to, and I’m offended. Who are you to say whether or not someone “sounds” like a Muslim? How do you know who her Imam is going to vote for, or even what his beliefs are? Don’t lump all Muslims into one group with categorical characteristics.

  31. Susan

    Gays do have the right to marry though I doubt they would want to since marriage is the Union between one adult male human and one adult female human.

    Why do YOU want to marry? Why don’t all heterosexual couples get civil unions instead? The idea behind marriage brings something more substantial to the relationship. I also find it interesting that you added “human” to your description. Are you maybe implying that if we allow gay marriage, it will snowball into allowing human – animal relations? Since obviously animals are citizens with legal standing and are capable of knowingly signing their own marriage licenses. And don’t tell me that gay marriage will demean the concept of marriage. Have you seen the celebrity tabloids? The divorce rates? Marriage has been demenead enough with or without gay marriage. If two gay people love each other enough to risk coming out to an unwelcoming society and marrying each other, who’s to say they won’t last longer than a heterosexual couple?

  32. “Are you maybe implying that if we allow gay marriage, it will snowball into allowing human – animal relations? ”

    Who knows what’s next.

    That is why I tried to be specific as possible. In past generations, what marriage is was self-evident. But I guess not any more. So lets be specific here.

    A marriage is between TWO people. Not three, not four, but two.

    And one of these two should be an adult male. And when I say male I mean human being and indeed not a goat or a dog or whatever.

    And the other of the two people should be an adult female. And again, I mean an human being and not a goat, dog, horse or whatever.

    Sorry to be so specific but you know why there was never a marriage clause to our constitution? It is because of course, marriage is between an male and a female. That’s the definition of the word.

    But now you have to be very, very specific when defining your terms, right.

    And like I said, gays can marry. A gay male can marry a female anytime he likes but I would think that would go against his gayness.

    But no, he can’t marry another male just like he can’t marry a goat. Because that is not the definition of the term marriage.

  33. “Are you aware of what you’re implying with that one simple statement?”

    Absolutely, but it isn’t only his lack of appreciation for the importance of baseball, but how he doesn’t put his hand on his heart when the national anthem was sung, how he embraced a pastor who said God Damn America.

    He is very anti-American. We are electing an anti-American to one of the most important positions in America, and from what we can tell he might not even be an American citizen.

  34. “He wrote one that was semi-autobiographical, and it included how he struggled and won the fight against his desires for men.”

    Sorry, but all his books were about natural health. But even if you were correct, even you said he won. So good for him.

    But it sounds more like Leftist propaganda than the truth. But even if it was the truth it just proves that one doesn’t have to be gay but instead can fight their way out if it.

  35. “A marriage is between TWO people. Not three, not four, but two.”

    Do the Mormons hate you “because you’re white” too Steve?

    But even if it was the truth it just proves that one doesn’t have to be gay but instead can fight their way out if it.

    The guy changed his last name from Weiner to Savage. *cough*

  36. Samina

    All this from a 22 minute episode of Little Mosque on the Prairie. Did we watch the same episode?

    Nahida, he loves winding you up and you fall in to the same trap each time.

    All that matters is that you know what you believe and it doesn’t matter what opinion anyone else has of you.

    No matter what you say it will be twisted and used against you so don’t bother reacting. Just enjoy the show for what it is and wait for the next episode.

    🙂

  37. Mormons do not practice polygamy anymore. At least the mainstream ones don’t. You do have some way extreme Mormons who do, but polygamy is against current laws.

    But indeed Mormonism is a cult.

    Steve – stop acting like a hick. It’s a sitcom.
    Should the rest of the world think that life in NY is like it was on F.R.I.E.N.D.S. or Sex and the City?

    For those of us who watch TV for the heckov’it and still have a sense of humor: here’s a question:

    Is wanting a rival romantic interest for Amaar so Rayyan can wake up really that cliche? I just feel so sorry for Amaar – he’s so….boring when Rayyan’s not around.

    And here’s a question not to sound like a total sap;

    What’s wrong if an Imam practices as a lawyer simultaneously? I don’t think many people see court in a small town like Mercy. Especially if he’s not earning his livelihood as an Imam – might as well earn on what you know….
    I don’t recall anything against Imam’s not being able to work for a living – if it doesn’t interfere with their spiritual work.

    Bite me.

  40. Thanks Samina. I think there should be a new character introduced for Amaar if he can’t be with Rayyan. He’s so lonely. =(

  41. Actually I see the one I gave you was in a foreign language.

    Here is all you need to know about Mormons.

    Steve is the reason why I stay out of my home country (the United States). Not because he doesn’t like Obama. Not because he ignorantly accuses Nahida of voting for Obama based on his “muslimness” or because he’s black. But because of shit like this:

    “Baseball is important in America. It is a strong part of our cultural heritage.”

    Really man? Seriously? Because if so, fuck our cultural heritage. I’d rather watch cricket. And cricket SUCKS.

  43. Steve

    First, Obama won because people of color wanted “one of theirs” in the White House.

    He had just gotten in the US Senate when he started running for President. Before then he was merely a state legislator from Illinois.

    Talk about lack of experience.

    Second, you don’t have to like baseball to be an American but you can’t deny the importance of baseball to millions of Americans. I am not saying that you have to partake of this piece of American life but you should understand that it important to the cultural heritage of America.

    If you want to stay out of America, fine. There are millions of people the world over who would risk their lives to come over here.

  44. דניאל

    Steve, I’m aware of the many people in the third-world who couldn’t get into Europe or Canada and have to settle for Yankeestan. That is totally cool for them. I will however be marrying my way into the citizenship of a real country.

    You know what’s something real countries tend to have? “Cultural heritage” that goes beyond a sport. Or if it IS a sport, at least one with a little more dignity than TEH STICKBALLZ

  45. steve and nahida get a room!!!!
