maybe she tucked her arms into her jilbaab...

looking at this cartoon made me remember Lego Men.. we should have Muslim Lego Figures... they could be without faces! Rememeber how lego men had hats.. well we can have hijaabs, kufis, turbans, those red sufi caps (just playing!) the bodies had clothes drawn on them, so we can have thobes, jalabeeya, jilbaab, Funky Kameze Shalwars (hot pink with purple pokedots).. but then we'd need a dupatta to match. Not sure how that would work. And we can have suits for "Modern Muslim Lego Men"

man, I grew up on Lego. There definitely should be Muslim lego figures. And they also need to make special muslim lego pieces...like the tops of minarets and pretty mihrabs and stuff so that we can make masjids for the Muslim lego people to pray in.

I was assuming the feet were under their Th'oubs. Anyway, I love the Imam's beard, a total of 9 pixels long. This Imam needs to be taught the rule of one fist length. Anyway, excellent work Altaf, you are very tallented Mashallah. (O and Hassan did well too)

The imam does not seem to have a fist. Hence, thus, therefore, there is no way to evaluate his beard in light of the fist-length narration of Umer (RA). Also, we must keep in mind that he might be Shafi'i. Please make 70 excuses for the imam.

It was narrated that Umm Humayd the wife of Abu Humayd al-Saa’idi came to the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allaah be upon him) and said, “O Messenger of Allaah, I like to pray with you.” He said, “I know that you like to pray with me, but your prayer in your room is better for you than your prayer in your courtyard and your prayer in your courtyard is better for you than your praying in your house, and your prayer in your house is better for you than your prayer in the mosque of your people, and your prayer in the mosque of your people is better for you than your prayer in my mosque.” So she issued orders that a prayer-place be prepared for her in the furthest and darkest part of her house, and she used to pray there until she met Allaah (i.e., died).”


Had you told a woman that the home is better, she'll argue to death that she's still allowed to pray in the masjid. Had you told a man that prayer at the masjid is required, except with a valid excuse (i.e. he's gonna die, work, class - not studying), he'll argue to death that he's still allowed to pray outside of the masjid.

The comic, my prediction for the future in light of what I just mentioned, demonstrates - though women don't have to pray at home and men might not have to pray in the masjid - how the mindset of today's muslim has changed because values have changed.

Gillette -- i've noticed you like to generalize people.. i know women and men who would not argue to death about it.
