But now you need to post the video of your act. Not a matter of pride, just to earth the moment. It wasn't the best comedy act ever but thats also why you'll remember how good it was.

@fatima:
Thanks fatima. I think that’s when comedy works- when you can relate to your audience- see, I can almost quit my day job soon:)

@Saaleha:

Mockery of the Religion is Disbelief
Shaykh Saalih al-Fawzaan
Source: Things that Nullify One's Islam

Whoever mocks anything from
the Religion of the Messenger or Allah's
reward or punishment has disbelieved. [2]


"And if you were to ask them, they would say: 'Surely we were only jesting and playing.' Say: 'Was it Allah, His Verses, or His Messenger you were mocking? Make no mistake, verily you have disbelieved after your belief.' "


make laugh not war with your creator!

if you had gone to see the comedy show you would then know that no mockery of Islam, Allah or the Prophet(SAW) took place..
rather a play on the various cultural stereotypes found in the muslim community globally
-get your facts straight
-and smile for goodness sake
btw bilal you have to you tube it!
i think you can decrease file size in windows movie maker
peace

Bilal said...

@anonymous:
Dont be STUPID!
If you had any sense, you wouldn't hide behind anonymity!
And why don't you go do some research on lies and slander?! That would do you much good!

@haseena:
ignore the stupid- but pray thanks for idiots like him. The world will be dull without farts like this to lighten it up!
Movie maker? I dont have movie maker! One day, one day i will get it up..

Zahera said...

@bilal : do u deny your lords words? the book of truth dosent lie!

"And if you were to ask them, they would say: 'Surely we were only jesting and playing.' Say: 'Was it Allah, His Verses, or His Messenger you were mocking? Make no mistake, verily you have disbelieved after your belief.' "

ps: why do you allow anon comments? if you have a problem with it then disable it! but dont allow anon comments and then slander the anonymous soul! hmmph!! surely you, knew that when u activated it!? nevermind i will give you the benfit of the doubt and im sure you will realise that when you slander and anonymous commenter then you are in fact mocking yourself, because you yourself activated it! :))))))
