AZ ZAQQUM wrote a book called The Humor of Islam...You'll Die Laughing. We liked her approach so much we asked her to write an article for us about it so we could post it. Let's all use the book to help educate people about Islam. Share it with people. Read it and use her funny comments to help make your sharing more entertaining. Here is Zaqqum's article:
MY NAME is Ms. Az Zaqqum (not really) and I wanted to make a difference in my own way. No, it probably wasn’t the most politically correct way, but it was time that someone did it, so…
I decided to write the first book (in over 1400 years of Islamic history) on the humor of Islam.
"The Humor of Islam...You'll Die Laughing". The title is a sarcastic twist on an Islamic Sharia law that forbids laughing too much. Which made me laugh too much.
Daniel Pipes said it was "Daring, fun and funny." Others worried they might catch Fatwa-itis...(be on someone’s Fatwa list).
George Carlin said there were 7 words that can’t be used on TV. Have the 8th and 9th words become Islamic and humor?
I used actual ancient Islamic texts. I didn’t make them funny, they’ve always been funny. And they still make news.
The French want to ban the burka, many Muslims say the burka is Islamic. The ancient texts say the burka was invented because Muhammad’s companions were watching his wives pee. You can see how that Hadith worked out. Someone should tell them that the companions are dead and we now have indoor toilets.
There’s a Hadith that describes how Muhammad died. An angry Jewish woman served him a poisoned, talking lamb chop. The moral of that Hadith? Don’t piss off a Jewish women! And yes, the lamb chop did warn him.
The 5 prayers? That’s not from the Quran, it’s Hadith. A man told the prophet; I kissed a girl and I liked it. He was told to pray 5 times.
Islam means Submission to Allah, not Muhammad. There are literally millions of Hadith. Islamists say we don’t understand. I say we are being abused…by bad Hadith. Maybe their mantra should be changed to: Muhammad is the prophet — and Allah is his homie.
We should know the difference between the Quran and Hadith. If it’s not in the Quran, it's not from Allah. One should not listen to men in dresses unless they wear cute shoes and pretty lipstick. And...
If Muslims don’t like living with Kafurs because we oppress them, they must go live in an Islamic country, or go to hell (4:97). That is in the Quran!
My goal is to inform and entertain the Western World with the humor of Islam and make interviews with the ACLU and Islamists much more entertaining.
You can find a humor book on every religion, except Islam. I challenge anyone to read this book and not find the humor of Islam, and it all starts with a Hadith. I end the book with current news stories. It ends where it all began, with a Hadith.
As for some of the pictures, my mother was the photographer, our two dogs and I were the models. I hope you enjoy it. I had to self publish (censorship and Fatwa-itis suck). Yes, I did make up the word; FATWA-ITIS...fear of fatwas.
I donate a portion of each book sold to the Wounded Warriors.
There’s never been anything like this book in the entire history of Islam. Please take a look at my website: www.thehumorofislam.com.
