WHO DO YOU WORSHIP?
(The Revival, Official newsletter of muslim youth league (UK) - - - - July/August 1998)
Whether it’s Ronaldo or Shearer, Tupac Shakur or Peter André, Leonardo de Caprio or Louise… these are all the false gods that rule the world today. The identity, values, purpose of life and the role models of Muslims today are dictated by these divine heroes and almighty celebrities. From the dress code to the hair-do and from the language to the attitude of life, these are all copied from their beloved idols.
Why is it that today you see every Tom, Dick and Harry with an ear stud, gold chain and rings, a dodgy hair cut with a mean vandike…..and don’t forget the long leather jacket and the extremely baggy jeans? Now what is all this about? Everyone wants to look ‘bad,’ you have to look ‘hard’…..why? It’s all part of the gangsta image. Icons such as Ice-T, Ice Cube (or is Tea-bag!) and the late Tupac Shakur have shot to fame due to their gangsta rap lyrics which are famous for their half a million ‘F’ words.
Today every respectable youth speaks in the same way and roams the streets in flashy cars playing extra-loud gangsta rap music imitating these so-called models.
Today, smoking weed and roaming the streets in gangs causing chaos is made to look ‘cool’. Muslims today want to be gangstas so they want to do what ever they want because they’re boss. Halaal and Haraam is defined by them, so nothing is prohibited and unlawful unless they decide it to be. This is a lethal and dangerous way of life which will lead to devastating consequences….just ask Tupac!
