Yeu,_' ust go to love the Brits.
lit devout Muslim" entered a black cab in Lenten. He curtly
asked the cabbie to turn off the radio because, as
decreed by his religious teaching, he must not listen
music because, in the time of the prophet, there was
music, especially Western music which is the music of the
infidel.
The cab driver politely switched off the radio, stopped the
cab and opened the door. The Arab Muslim asked him,
What are you doing?" The cabbie answered, "In the time
of the prophet, there were no taxis, SC) and wait
for a camel!"

it pisses me off cause there's muslims like this everywhere. Your willingly coming to this country knowing of their customs, then you complain how it's not like home. If you don't like it, go somewhere else it's as simple as that. Why do they come to other countries and try to change everything. It's assholes like them that tell me I can't say merry christmas in CANADA. I couldn't put up certain decorations last year cause my fucking neighbor called it offensive and got the town hall involved. These liberal douchebags are ruining everything

"Excuse me sir, can you turn off the radio so as to be respectful to my religious background?"
"Fuck off and get a camel."

And you pricks say religious people are intolerant

Or, "Hey, can you change what you're doing and enjoying just to cater to my religion? It's not like I got in YOUR cab at all, right? Maybe you're really liking that song, oh, is that your favorite part coming up? Sucks for you, 'ey? Cause my religion dictates I can't listen to shit that didn't exist when my Lord came down, but even though you have a perfect rebuttal to my argument, you can't say that because THAT is intolerant of my religion, how DARE YOU."

I hate people..

side note: what, does he think music was invented in the 1800's or some shit?
Music predates Abrahamic religions.

No music, lol Islam was created in the 7th century A.D, by that time you had a lot of cultures with a lot of musical styles. The cab driver was right, what a douche

Eh, 50-50 on this one.
The jab at western music takes away points for the muslim.

But he seemed polite otherwise, so I don't really agree with the cab just saying Piss-off to the guy either.

This is assuming that we're actually reading the whole story.

Not every Muslim is like that though one time when I was playing Mario Strikers over at my Muslim friend's house, we had to play the game at mute because he couldn't even listen to Nintendo game music let alone mainstream music.

So... hooray for religious intolerance? Is that the message here? ffs funnyjunk.

the guy insulted him by saying western music is the music of the infidel. if he had simply asked for him to turn off the radio there would be no problem
User avatar #103 - FightClub (10/08/2013) [-]
the guy that created this joke is misinformed on the reasoning behind this restriction in muslim religion.

the reason why they aren't permitted to listen to music during ramadan (the occasion he's referring to) is because it is considered distracting from praying and performing good deeds. muslims that submit themselves to restrictions as ridiculous as these are the utmost-devout of them all, so i doubt many comply with it.

so it isn't the religion's fault for this false description, it's just the ignorant author of the content.

i also don't blame the cab rider for reacting in such a manner as the muslim's arrogant and disparaging remarks warranted the retaliation. if he hadn't derided western music specifically, then the cab driver would've been at fault instead.

"in the time of the prophet there was no music"

that's got to be BS, music has existed since people learned to whistle.

Or, you could just ask him to turn the radio off without explaining bullshit that no one cares about.

You see, but now all people are gonna think muslims actually do this, and I'm pretty sure they don't, because I work with a number of muslims, and I know one who is very fond of singing "A Thousand Miles" by Vanessa Carlton. Pretty damn western dude.
User avatar #57 to #55 - KayRed (10/08/2013) [-]
Really, the only thing that he does because of his religion is not cook bacon in with our soups, which I think is completely reasonable.

So, is this rude because the good Arab paid or would have paid for the ride and politely asked, or is this normal because he came up with some camelshit reason that wasn't relevant at all?
