AMERICA’S NEXT TOP MUFTI welcomes some of the youngest, hippest members of the Islamic world during the very first season of the new hit show for modern Islamists. Hopefuls from across the country are given the chance to prove they have what it takes to be judge and jury when the competition kicks off.
The latest reality TV sensation in Malaysia may strike Western viewers as an unlikely candidate to join the ranks of Ryan Seacrest and Heidi Klum: Hasan Mahmood, who wears a turban during each episode of his recently launched television series, “Young Imam,” is the former grand mufti of Malaysia’s national mosque.
At first glance, “Young Imam” looks fairly similar to its Western counterparts (it is often described as a relative of “American Idol”): each week, Mahmood winnows down a pool of young Malaysians competing for a glitzy prize package. But the similarities stop there. Instead of vying for premium record deals or glossy magazine spreads, the eager contestants on this show are competing for a shot at becoming the country’s next leading religious leader. The winner will walk away with a scholarship to al-Madinah University in Saudi Arabia, a job at a Kuala Lumpur mosque, and a fully-paid Haj pilgrimage to Mecca. They are judged on everything from their musical chops (when reciting the Koran) to their academic credentials (when interpreting the Koran).
In other news from the islamic world, apparently the softer side of islam is taking hold. Some German jihadis decided Pakistan was just too tuuuuuff and they want to head home to mommy!
See mypetjawa for the full story, lol!
So, your a German national and all your friends down at the mosque tell you how wonderful it must be to be a mujahideen. On top of that mom and dad regale you with their stories of the good life growing up in Pakistan. So what’s an aspiring shahid to do but make the caravan to the lands of martyrdom.
Only you get there and you realize that all that stuff on the internet about how the mujahideen are busy kicking kafir ass is just so much bullshit.
Never fear, the Germans, always willing to forgive and forget, want to help you with an “opt out” program. I’m guessing they’ll supply the World of Warhammer, Hasselhoff, and shiza films to help you re-acclimate yourself to German culture.
