Ramadan Cream is Haram

Monday, 31 August 2009

In the name of God, Compassionate, Merciful بسم الله الرحمن الرحيمِ | Peace be with you السلام عليكم

I've been joking randomly about the popular Ramadan Kareem greeting by changing it to Ramadan Cream. I think it's ironic. And my humour is lost on most of the souls I meet.

Turns out the Kareem part was haram all along! The Muslim Detroit Examiner published this:

"Ramadan is not the one that gives such that it can be called generous (Kareem), rather it is only ALLAH the Exalted that put virtue in it and made it a virtuous month and made the time period for performing (the fasting) a pillar from Islam."

Anywho, my Cream is satirical; I didn't wish to cause offense for anything but the D.E just sounded like a dig at me so I wanted to post it for the rest of us...

Read sister Sakinah's full post here, whom by the way I utterly adore and exploit over on Muslimness.

Ramadan Cream - er, Mubarakings! No, Mubarak, Ramadan Mubarak!
