Update 1: Apparently Creek Stone Farms supplies Shake Shack with their beef. This farm’s beef is halal. Shake Shake doesn’t know this that’s why they don’t advertise it nor acknowledge it.

Sorry but it’s not halal. I kept hearing about this restaurant and there were rumors that they were halal. I decided to simply ask them, and they responded with a clear and definite answer.

Hi Ibn,

Unfortunately we don’t serve halal or kosher meat in the US. I’m sorry about that, and hope you can visit us to enjoy a sweet treat of frozen custard.

Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi Twitter Hacked? (UPDATE: Tweet Removed)

Shaykh Muhammad Al-Yaqoubi Twitter Hacked? (UPDATE: Tweet Removed)

UPDATE: It appears the tweet has been removed alhamdulillah. Perhaps that Twitter account is not the official one of Shaykh Muhammad.

_____________________

I don’t know how I can explain such a tweet from Shaykh Muhammad except that someone hacked his account or someone is doing a really good job of impersonating him on Twitter.  I hope this is not his official account and I pray that he never said this.

I have recently learned that a friend, Mohamed Soltan, of some of my friends was attacked and arrested in Egypt for protesting against the Egyptian military coup. I have pasted their words with their permission. Mohamed Soltan has been an activist in Egypt calling for Democracy. You can see him on Twitter here and he was on ABC News doing an interview here.

From my friend Raef:

Mohamed Soltan, shot earlier by Egyptian security forces is now arrested by the bastards. They broke into the apartment and took him – as of now, no one knows where he is.

From my friend Ahmad Abuhamda:

A Must Read – Sharif Aly: My Perspective on Egypt

A Must Read – Sharif Aly: My Perspective on Egypt

I have dear family and friends in Egypt who are surprised by my position on what is happening. Some random people on Twitter even cursed at me and called me horrible names for sharing news articles and voicing opinions that I believe are based on solid, trustworthy sources and eyewitness testimony. Keep in mind there are journalists from all across the world in the middle of the violence, capturing the actions as they happen and sharing them with the world.
