    Like we didn’t see this coming.

  2. Mohamed

    Oh its pretty obvious it was coming but I wonder what its exactly about?

  3. Tim

    “How will Amaar react?”

    He is still pretty broken up about the death of the woman he met in Toronto.

    I don’t know how he will react to this.

  4. asiila

    what woman in toronto died???

  5. Mohamed

    What woman?

  6. Tim

    The woman who Amaar told to study abroad even if that was against the wishes of her parents.

  7. Mohamed and asiila, she didn’t die. Tim is mentally unstable. Excuse his loose grasp of reality.

    I think Rayyan and JJ will work it out.

  9. They most likely will, since the second to last episode is titled “Meet the Jaffers.” The last episode is “Can I Get a Witness?” which I suspect has to do with the wedding.

  10. Salaam, they need to get ammar a grl, so he can get married…it would be interesting and a change to see how rayyan will react…

    Another important to thing to note is that Islam recomends that the imam’s of the community get married as quickly as possible…so Ammar should get married…wat do u guys think

  11. Its a nice show… Will upload it 2nite when i come back home 🙂

  12. Bluffmaster

    Haha if anything Rayyan and I can work it out 😉

  13. asiila

    i agree with you usman, the imam of a masjid SHOULD be married. from my understanding, it’s one of the normal pre-requisites…fulfilling ‘half the deyn’ and all…and maybe needing some more experience when and if called upon to counsel married couples, etal. not to mention, it will help keep him ‘focused’ overall…

    I have a question about Amaar and the portrayal of Imams.

    Now I realize that this is a comedy and all and one has to take it into account.

    But is this an accurate portrayal of the role of Imams in Muslim society. I mean him going around giving advice all the time.

    Also, they seem to treat Amaar as “normal” instead of treating him specially as an Imam. Is that just part of the show, people treating him as “one of the guys” instead of a religious figure?

  15. Steve

    I guess we have just figured out where the breakup is going to happen. J.J. just isn’t decisive enough. He is too willing to please Rayyan. Sure one wants to please their wife (or in this case future wife) but not to the degree that you stop knowing what you want.

    So I guess this fight isn’t really about “Dubai” but still J.J.’s dad runs a mult-billion dollar company. J.J. and Rayyan just can’t stay in Mercy with all the responsibilities J.J. has. Indeed I am surprised that the demands of his father’s company hasn’t taken J.J. away from Mercy before this.

    Also, it was interesting how Amaar admitted that he has given bad advice lately. I guess that knowledge will always be with him but he seems to have dealt with it to some degree.

    “The last episode is “Can I Get a Witness?” which I suspect has to do with the wedding.”

    The only reason one would need a witness is if Rayyan and someone eloped (Rayyan and Ammar?) because when one has an official wedding, there are many many people there who serve as witnesses.

    Like when one goes to Vegas and decided to get married on a whim there is no one but the guy and the women there and the minster. Law requires someone else there to serve as witness and they usually have someone at the chapel to serve that function.

    Isn’t eloping against Muslim teaching?

  17. Steve

    Is it true that it is easy to get a divorce in Islam?

    All a woman has to do is spin around three times or something like that?

    So perhaps Rayyan Marries J.J. divorces him after she realizes that she can’t live his millionaire lifestyle and then elopes with Amaar.

  18. Show has been Uploaded 🙂

  19. “The only reason one would need a witness is if Rayyan and someone eloped (Rayyan and Ammar?) because when one has an official wedding, there are many many people there who serve as witnesses.”

    Steve–

    I don’t know what religion you’re talking about, but in Islam an “official wedding” doesn’t require the presence of “many many people.” My cousin was married months before the actual wedding reception to insure that she and her fiancee can have the time to plan a nice wedding reception without giving themselves the time–and therefore more of an opportunity–to commit sin. In that case, you would need a witness.

    Now, I know that this isn’t the case with Rayyan and J.J.–they seem to be planning the wedding and the reception at once, because Rayyan’s parents are around to chaperon (my cousin’s weren’t) but I’m just clearing this up unless you have some weird blurred up view, which wouldn’t surprise me.

    I don’t know why you think eloping is against Muslim teaching. Unless you’re going to Vegas, given a certain circumstance it would be perfectly permissible.

  20. Steve

    How about my question regarding the role of Imams?

  21. “But is this an accurate portrayal of the role of Imams in Muslim society. I mean him going around giving advice all the time.”

    I can actually ask my imam for advice whenever I want, yes.

  22. Steve

    Do you see him as a “normal” person like they treat Amaar on the show, or someone special. I mean on this show they treat Amaar as “just one of the guys”.

  23. My imam is older than me (obviously) he’s 28 and I don’t think I see him as “one of the guys” but that’s clearly because of the age different. I wouldn’t know who he is to his friends, but if they’re friends then obviously he’s one of the guys.

  24. Jeff

    Yeah, it is probably not a good thing but often we Christians see our pastors, Priests, etc as somewhat “more holly” than most of the rest of us.

    Catholics in particular have been really bad over the years over the years regarding this.

    A Priest that you can just go have a beer with (or in the case of an Imam I guess root beer) just seems kind of wrong. I know it isn’t and they aren’t supposed to be above us but I am just telling you how we feel about them.

    They did a real good “Northern Exposure” on this once and I really could relate to it. It was just the impression we got growing up. We put Priests up on pedestals.

    Of course in recent years with all the scandals many of us have now gone the other way and view them with suspicion.

  25. Jeff

    My imam is older than me (obviously) he’s 28 and I don’t think I see him as “one of the guys” but that’s clearly because of the age different.

    Yeah, but there must be other men around you who are around 28. How do you feel about your Imam compared to others his age? Do you see him as kind of standing apart from others?

  26. LOL root beer!

    Yeah, there are. I guess if I think about it, if there’s anyone with whom I can compare the relationship between me and my imam it’s like a student and a teacher.

    So it’s different, but not to the point where he’s… “more holy.”

  27. Steve

    Thanks Jeff,

    That was indeed what I was getting at.

    I grew up Catholic too and while it’s certainly not scripture, I always saw the Priest as “more holy” as well.

    The way they portray Amaar as a “normal” person I do find curious. The other Muslims does see him as more “enlightened” than most of them.

    The way Fred treated McGee at the church would be seen by us as practically blasphemy. You don’t threaten a man of the cloth, especially at “God’s House” without expecting some kind of divine retribution to befall you.

  28. Kurt

    Who conducts a Muslim wedding?

    I have been assuming it’s the Imam because I have been given the impression that Imam=Priest.

    But is that indeed correct?
