The world’s first Wahhabist music video

posted at 9:26 am on August 13, 2007 by Allahpundit

The plot, such as it is, is exactly what you’d expect it to be: five times a day, sucka, or you’ll lose your girl and just maybe end up semi-conscious on the asphalt after Allah takes revenge. The combo of establishment mores and an anti-establishment medium reminds me of the Simpsons’ take on Canadian graffiti: “Obey the rules.”

The scene where our hero is caught macking on a Riyadh hottie appears to take place in a mall. Er, is that legal?

Update: Bill Ardolino e-mails: “That video isn’t wahhabist. It looks like a reaction specifically tailored to the army of rich arab trust fund babies that drink, smoke and drag race souped up automobiles from stop light to stop light while acting like part of Paris Hilton’s entourage.”

Update: Here’s something else that’s running on Saudi TV right now. Click the image to watch.

So, it is pretty much like the Muslim version of “My Name Is Earl”?

Didn’t realize that Islam was for the castration of men. Move over Michael Jackson

Is non-religious music even legal in Saudi Arabia?

Number 2 on August 13, 2007 at 9:38 AM

A shame the ultra-strict Muslim clerics who tried to have television banned from Saudi Arabia failed.

Over-ruled by the blaspheming heretics who now run the place.

A pity they didn’t ban contact with any infidel technology.

From soccer balls to malls.

Sounds like a cat dying.

Only terrorists use Macbooks.

Count on the Saudis to put a sheet on a monkey and call it a cleric.

Oh dude. Why the fightin’ words?

Over 70 rules for urination and defecation?

nailinmyeye on August 13, 2007 at 9:58 AM

So today’s lesson is, use an Apple and ride a motorcycle and you’ll start wearing colored underwear, urinating in your pants and your nasty wife will leave you.

This guy’s problems really started when his wife hung up on him and he didn’t go home and stone her with his biker pals. He forgot “The Law”.

Hening on August 13, 2007 at 10:01 AM

I like the fact he wears a shirt with “PROGRESSIVE” emblazoned across the front of it… that’s right, stray from the path and live your life all f00ked up, and you’re “Progressive”. I like it.

Othger than that, the video sucks. But that’s to be expected. Everything Islamic does.

SilverStar830 on August 13, 2007 at 10:02 AM

I laughed at the part where his ‘wife’ throws down her ring, yea, like she’d,
1) be out by herself.
2) have the ability to decide anything involving her husband.

My boss is an IPerson. The battles may end, but the war goes on.

MadisonConservative on August 13, 2007 at 10:05 AM

“Progressive”?

Can he get me a good price on insurance?

Or does that thwart the will of Allah?

profitsbeard on August 13, 2007 at 10:22 AM

That video isn’t wahhabist. It looks like a conservative religious reaction/appeal very specifically tailored to the army of rich arab trust fund babies that drink, smoke and drag race suped-up automobiles from stop light to stop light while wearing euro-shades and acting like part of Paris Hilton’s entourage. They are the “eurotrash” or “chavs” of the Arab world; it’s really common in the rich, peaceful countries.

One filipino worker – part of the servant class – in Kuwait told me “this generation of kids is gonna be messed up, man.”

BillINDC on August 13, 2007 at 10:32 AM

And I wouldn’t even call it too “conservative,” given the style it’s shot in, and given how “conservative” can be expressed in the Arab world.

But it’s definitely a sort of “be respectful and halal, young man,” message.

It’s interesting to watch these culture and generational conflicts involving and expressed through Western influences. I wonder if we’ll see a take-off on Twisted Sister’s “We’re Not Gonna Take It,” in response.

BillINDC on August 13, 2007 at 10:38 AM

Religion of Progressive

moonsbreath on August 13, 2007 at 11:03 AM

…we have counted about 70 rules about how to urinate and deficate…

Talk about anal retentive! Me thinks their whities are too tighties.

dm60462 on August 13, 2007 at 12:43 PM

Ah, yes, because if I don’t pray 5 times a day, Allah will crash my computer…

Miss_Anthrope on August 13, 2007 at 1:02 PM

Oh Brother! Listening to that, cleric(?)
He’s obviously on a homo erotic scat fill dreamland anti aids circumcised hanging out in the mens room looking for colored underwear rant. Hasn’t he ever seen a Michael Jordan Hanes underwear commercial? You can have any color underwear you want, as long as it’s white?!? Jesse Jackson’s rainbow coalition would have fun with that bozo, let alone some of the more ghey groups that frequent his daytime dreams or on his iPod. I wonder if he knows we use white toilet paper, as appose to using his middle left hand finger. Or a buday and not just a garden hose connected next to the toilet. But wahabi do I know?

Kini on August 13, 2007 at 1:02 PM

Funny, I don’t seem to have any problem regarding ‘filth in my shorts’…

I must be a highly-functioning beast.

Miss_Anthrope on August 13, 2007 at 1:03 PM

I’d like to see a wahabist music video about a suicide bomber partying with hoes in heaven.

Sir-Mix-Alot can produce.

Zach on August 13, 2007 at 1:16 PM

According to the second clip, there is no happiness in the world without Islam…funny, but I am pretty happy living in a prosperous America, where I am free to choose my own religion without fear of death. Also, I am pretty happy that I am not being oppressed and beaten by my husband/other men in society. Funny how much freedom there is in the world without Islam, and how much imprisonment there is under it.

Trtle2001 on August 13, 2007 at 3:46 PM

Funny how that seems to be Hillary’s campaign message also.

Kini on August 13, 2007 at 4:33 PM

Last happiest day on Earth.

The day before Mohammad was whelped.

Next happiest day on Earth.

The day the last person stops believing his paranoid jive.

profitsbeard on August 13, 2007 at 7:30 PM

Hmmmm… interesting. This is from a guy who comes from that part of the world that does not use toilet paper and he is commenting about how the West goes to the bathroom? As for covering our private parts, with the exceptions of perverted “flashers” perhaps it is because we are not ashamed of our bodies.

As for the color of our underwear, or for what we wear and do not wear, I wonder how he would regard me since I am a naturist (nudist).

The False Dervish on August 13, 2007 at 8:36 PM

He could have elaborated on some of the 70 rules. Such as

Sahih Muslim. Version 1.03 – Translated by Abdul Hamid Siddiqui
Book 2: The Book of Purification (Kitab Al-Taharah) >> Chapter 12: HOW TO CLEANSE ONESELF AFTER RELIEVING ONESELF

Book 2, Number 0505:
Salman said that (one among) the polytheists remarked: I see that your friend even teaches you about the excrement. He replied; Yes, he has in fact forbidden us that anyone amongst us should cleanse himself with his right hand, or face the Qibla. He has forbidden the use of dung or bone for it, and he has also instructed us not to use less than three pebbles (for this purpose).

Or try this

Fiqh-ul Sunnah. Version 1.05 – By Sayyid Saabiq
Volume 1 >> Fiqh 1.11 a: The urine and stools of animals that are permissible to eat

Fiqh 1.11 a: The urine and stools of animals that are permissible to eat
Both of these are considered impure. Ibn Mas’ud related that the Messenger of Allah, upon whom be peace, went to answer the call of nature. He asked ‘Abdullah ibn Mas’ud to bring three stones. ‘Abdullah said, “I could not find three stones, so I found two stones and animal dung and brought them to him. He took the two stones and threw away the dung saying, ‘It is impure.”‘
The hadith is related by al-Bukhari, Ibn Majah, and Ibn Khuzaimah. In one narration it states, “It is impure. It is the stool of a donkey.” A little amount of it is pardoned though, as it is very difficult to completely protect one’s self from it. Al-Waleed ibn Muslim says, “I said to al-Auza’i, ‘What about the urine of animals whose meat is not eaten, like the mule, donkey and horse?’ He said that they used to come into contact with these during their battles, and that they did not wash it off their bodies or clothes. As for the urine and stools of animals whose meat is permissible, Malik, Ahmad and a group of the Shaifiyyah says that it is pure. Commenting on the subject, Ibn Taimiyyah says, “None of the companions held that it is impure. In fact, the statement that it is impure is of recent origin and not from the early generations of the companions.”
Said Anas, “A group of people from the tribes of Ukul or ‘Uraina came to Madinah and became ill in their stomach. The Prophet ordered them to get a milking she-camel and drink a mixture of its milk and urine.” This hadith is related by Ahmad, al-Bukhari and Muslim and points to a camel’s urine as being pure. Therefore, by analogy, other permissible animals’ urine may also be considered pure. Says Ibn al-Munzhir, “Those who claim that that was permissible only for those people are incorrect. Specification is only confirmed by some specific proof.” He also says, “The scholars permit, without any objection, the sale of sheep’s stools and the use of camel’s urine in their medicine, both in the past and in the present, again without any objection. This shows that they are considered pure.” Says ash-Shaukani, “Apparently, the urine and stools of every living animal permissible to eat is pure.” There is nothing to prove otherwise.
