I've been texting the following back to my friends all day.


"Do not vote. The vote will not make a difference and neither will they stop attacking Islam. I wouldn't be suprized if 5 live started the circulation of that text"


So my suggestion, ignore the vote

Besides, it was the morning show if I understand correctly.


The poll would have finished at midday.


The only one's benefiting after that would be the phone companies.

Salaam,


anyone actually listen to radio 5? the text that was going round wasn't even correct!! they were asking something along the lines...'should women be allowed to wear Niqab?' well it was something that required the answer YES!! and everyones texting saying no, the presenters realised something had gone wrong somwhere, they even had to announce after for people to stop texting and wasting their money!


But something funny they said was...'the poll started at 9am and finished at 4/5pm, it was only after this time we recieved soooo many texts saying NO that it's blocking up our phone line! why not just text on time?'

^ Exactly!!!... i think we as muslims need to get a sense of things before anyone else, if we were not as naive as we are... the media would have no need to initialise these txt-polls.

what wouId be the ideal response wouId be if more sisters start wearing it. Same goes for those who criticise any aspect of deen. criticise the beard = brothers should retaliate by growing fuII fist beards, criticise our Prophet SAW = brothers/sisters should retaliate by increasing in our Love for nabee SAW by bringing in more and more of the sunnats of prophet SAW (his character, personality, humility, forbearance, honesty, dress sense, kindness, forgiveness etc etc) into our Iives. Criticise the treatment of musIim women = brothers shouId retaIiate by increasing the Iove and respect they have for their womenfoIk by foIIowing the exampIe of nabee SAW in how he treated and honoured the women in his charge. The more we increase in our foIIowing of deen (spirituaIy and physicaIIy) the more better AIIah's fasIahs wouId come down in our favour we do the opposite the wrong fesIahs wiII come down against us.

But as i expect some morons wouId be marching down TrafaIgar sq this weekend with boards saying "KiII those who insuIt da deen" What wouId be nice if these twisted individuaIs just sat in the Sq and read out the beautifuI seerah of Prophet SAW and the Sahabah RAD to any passers by as some good brothers do at Hide Park's Speakers Corner.

Assalamu Alaykum.


The post that was reported has been edited a little. I understand why it was reported and I understand why the brother who said what he said was said.


The post has been reactivated.


Wassalam

Yasin, that was not the question asked and the poll lasted only 3 hours in the morning till 9am. Five Live were having a snide laugh at our expense because Muslims were blindly texting the Drive programme at 4pm that day in the afternoon answering the wrong question. I wish some people would buck up their ideas and be constructive rather than all follow like sheep.
