“Let him change it with his hand…”


In the collection of Imam Muslim, Abu Sa`id Al-Khudri narrated: I heard the Messenger of Allah say:

“Whosoever of you sees an evil action, let him change it with his hand; and if he is not able to do so, then with his tongue; and if he is not able to do so, then with his heart; and that is the weakest of faith.”


I was hanging out with a bunch of guys earlier this week when one of them mentioned something about one of the guys having leather masks and whips in his trunk. Don’t worry, this is a clean story. Anyway, so I was like, dude, you better have a good explanation for that. So he said that about a year ago, at one of the local Chicago universities (not going to say which one), there was a problem with the hijabi sisters getting together after classes in the parking lot and going out for “extra-curricular” activities. Things had gotten to be pretty bad, with activities such as drinking, etc., added to the smorgasbord of problems.


My friend and one of his boys realized that something had to be done. I guess they figured talking to them and advising them wasn’t enough… no, they needed something far more effective. So they went to a nearby costume store and purchased some leather masks and whips. Their plan of action was quite simply, really: make sure the hijabis didn’t congregate in the parking lot to decide on what fun-filled activity to engage in. To do this, they donned themselves in the masks, armed themselves with the whips, and hid in the bushes, waiting for the hijabis to walk into the parking lot after classes. As soon as they walked out, my friend and his boy, all decked in black with masks on, would run out and chase them whips while screaming like madmen. The hijabis would get freaked out and scatter to their cars and rush home to avoid these masked marauders.


Wow, talk about taking that hadith to a whole new level =). I don’t think any scholar included “leather masks and whips” in a commentary for this hadith, but still, this was pretty effective. And while some of you might be shaking your heads in disdain, know this: at least they were successful in preventing them from engaging in these “activities”.


Besides, it’s hilarious.


Finally, I had taken this picture while driving to school for my last final and had forgotten to post it until now:



If it’s too hard to make out, it’s a picture of a really dirty truck… usually, people will write in “I need a car wash” or something like that in the dirt. But someone instead seems to have changed the dirt on the back of the truck, using their hand, to spell out the word “Allah”. I took that to be a good Sign, seeing as I saw this truck right before my last final… Inshallah the grades will reflect that.


Lastly, I want to say that my boy, Altamash Iftikhar (im sorry for spelling your name wrong son), is the truest brother around. Even if he didn’t come to the 12 pm jumu’ah like he said he would.


Edit: I dedicate these 3 Boondocks comic strips to Alti as well:
