This is probably one of the better Islamic typographic videos on the web. The poem is very beautiful and will hit the heart for many. The topic will attract all Muslims from all backgrounds. The visual graphic imagery of the video was not that bad, but sometimes it went pretty fast before I could really look at it, but then again listening is the main thing when it comes to these videos. Overall it was a great experience, mashaAllah!
Quiznos is better anyway.
CAIR Action Alert #683:
Action: Ask SUBWAY to Apologize to La. Muslim Barred from Restaurant
Restaurant employee asks customer ‘Are you Muslim?’ then locked the door
(WASHINGTON, D.C., 11/29/12) — CAIR is calling on all people of conscience to contact the SUBWAY restaurant chain to request that a formal apology be given to a Louisiana Muslim allegedly locked out of a sandwich shop in that state because of his faith. [SUBWAY, based in Milford, Conn., has more than 38,000 locations in 100 countries.]
A retired 63-year-old U.S. citizen of South Asian heritage who lives in New Orleans reported to CAIR that on November 21, 2012, he and his wife stopped at the SUBWAY restaurant in Shreveport, La. Before ordering, they went to the restrooms in the facility. The husband exited the restroom first and went outside the restaurant to wait for his wife in anticipation of re-entering to order their food.
While his wife was still inside the restaurant, the victim attempted to re-enter, but was blocked at the door by a female SUBWAY employee who allegedly asked him “Are you Muslim?” When the victim replied that he is indeed Muslim, the SUBWAY employee reportedly responded, “We can’t serve you.” The employee then went inside the restaurant and locked the door behind her. Fearing for his wife’s safety and distraught at the violation of his civil rights, the man called 911.
When the Shreveport Police Department arrived, an officer went inside the SUBWAY restaurant and later came out to tell the victim that the manager was “scared” of him and that he “better leave.”[NOTE: The victim is 5'6" and weighs approximately 155 pounds. He wears an Islamic cap, called a "kufi," and a beard for religious reasons. His wife, a teacher, wears an Islamic headscarf, or "hijab."]
In a letter to SUBWAY President and CEO Fred DeLuca, CAIR National Legal Counsel Nadhira Al-Khalili wrote in part:
“Louisiana Revised Statutes 51:2247 states that it is a ‘discriminatory practice for a person to deny an individual the full and equal enjoyment of the goods, services, facilities, privileges, advantages, and accommodations of a place of public accommodation, resort, or amusement, as defined in this Chapter, on the grounds of race, creed, color, religion, sex, age, disability, as defined in R.S. 51:2232(11), or national origin.’ According to the law, a place of public accommodation ‘means any place, store, or other establishment, either licensed or unlicensed, which supplies goods or services to the general public.’”
Al-Khalili’s letter cited Title II of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which prohibits discrimination on account of religion in places of public accommodation and service. She also referred to the company’s diversity policy that claims SUBWAY “does not tolerate discrimination of any kind on the basis of race, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, creed, religion, color or national origin.”
CAIR requested that SUBWAY (1) investigate this troubling incident, (2) offer a formal written apology to the victim and his wife, (3) institute policy changes that will ensure that this type of incident does not occur in the future, (4) offer compensation to the victim and his wife for the humiliation and emotional distress caused by the SUBWAY employee and the police, and (5) participate in a corporate religious sensitivity program for franchise managers.
A copy of the letter was sent to Chief Willie L. Shaw, Jr. of the Shreveport Police Department and to the U.S. Department of Justice, Civil Rights Division.
Contact SUBWAY to request that they (1) investigate this troubling incident, (2) offer a formal written apology to the victim and his wife, (3) institute policy changes that will ensure that this type of incident does not occur in the future, (4) offer compensation to the victim and his wife for the humiliation and emotional distress caused by the SUBWAY employee and the police, and (5) participate in a corporate religious sensitivity program for franchise managers.

The 2012 Presidential elections are over. President Barack Hussein Obama has been re-elected for a 2nd term. Congratulations to him and his administration. I pray to God that he rules justly and tries to fix the failed policies both foreign and domestically. Thanks to God, Mitt Romney was defeated. The Republican party still won the House of Representatives but lost the Senate. It appears to be an extension of the past 2 years, but it’s better than a Romney presidency for sure.
*When I say marriage problem in this post I mean the problem of finding someone to marry.
Contrary to what many believe including myself (before this post), there is no Muslim marriage problem in America, Canada and the Western world. It’s a marriage problem. What do I mean? I mean it’s not exclusive to Muslims. The entire definition and status of marriage has dramatically changed. The economic and social factors surrounding marriage has also changed. Marriage was in many ways an economic vehicle to help communities grow and allow them to prosper. Now marriage is more or less a religious institution to maintain moral values. More
This is a very interesting video.
As a Muslim I also believe Jesus (peace be upon him) will return. He will rule from Jerusalem, but not sure about Missouri.
Dear U.S. State Department, President Barack Obama and Secretary Hillary Clinton:
The U.S. has bought $70,000 worth of air time on seven Pakistani television channels to air an ad showing President Barack Obama and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton denouncing the anti-Islamic video that has sparked violent protests in the Middle East and North Africa. (source)
