Allah Be Praised!

An elderly Muslim lady was well-known for her faith and for her confidence in talking about it. She would stand in front of her house and say "Allah be praised" to all those who passed by.

Next door to her lived an atheist who would get so angry at her proclamations he would shout, "There ain't no Lord!!"

Hard times came upon the elderly lady, and she prayed for Allah to send her some assistance. She would pray out loud in her night prayer "Oh Allah! I need food!! I am having a hard time, please Lord, PLEASE LORD, SEND ME SOME GROCERIES!!"
One night the atheist happened to hear her as she was praying, and decided to play a prank on her. The next morning the lady went out on her porch and found a large bag of groceries. She raised her hands and shouted, "Allah be praised!."

The neighbor jumped from behind a bush and said, "Aha! I told you there was no Lord. I bought those groceries, God didn't."

The old lady laughed and clapped her hands and said, "ALLAH BE PRAISED. He not only sent me groceries, but he made the devil pay for them!"

    I think you folks should not make jokes using “ALLAH” if you want to keep your heads. It isn’t as funny as you think. Non-muslims need to show some respect for other people’s religions and stay away from cultures you don’t understand.

      This not a joke about Allah. It is more a joke about the devil.

        Then stay away from sensitive words like Allah, muslim and Islam. Keep out!

          Oh so Allah and Islam are out but Catholic and Jewish are OK. I get it.

            No, Allah is not out. You don’t seem to be aware that you are offensive to muslims because of your cultural ignorance. For example, you don’t cover your bodies and show cleavage. That way of dressing is abhorrent to muslims. Even your reference to Allah is disrespectful because you are not a muslim. You think they are culturally backward and prudish and they see you as evil.

              You speak for me do you? You know what I believe or how I feel? Well now I guess I’ve been put in my place.

            I speak not to you personally but to the generality of liberal white Americans. It is possible to form close personal relationship or friendship with muslims but only on a one-to-one basis if the parties are not fanatics. Such ties are private, and bonding is at the human level where interpersonal affection trumps culture, ideology and even religion. The Charlie Hebdo folks paid the price for stepping irreverently on Holy Ground. You believe that your heart is big enough to embrace even the Devil. Don’t force others to embrace you.

              I force no one to embrace me.

            Good. Then don’t protest Trump’s Executive Action. Let’s screen folks coming into the country and ensure only those who truly love us get in.
