2006050419071744805_1.jpgGoal: Sometimes all that is needed is for us Muslims is to take the chill pill. Yes I do like to make fun of things especially at people that I am pissed of at.

Policy: As with all halal comedy, Umm LOLCats will make fun of some Muslims (the one’s who are violent and try to pass their action as Islam) but there are things like the religion of Islam itself that will always be off limit. πŸ˜‰

    Could you tell us more about Syed Hossein Nasr on greenprophet.com?
    We’d love to hear your POV.

    i did not realize that the sole purpose of ur blog is to ridicule muslims…. isn’t it strange why religion plays such an important role in our life

  5. 6 Umm LOL Cats December 26, 2007 at 7:21 pm

    Ankur, ridicule is a strong word but in retrospect. I apologize if I gave that impression. I should have been more careful in choosing my words. My aim is to poke fun at Muslims who give a bad name to Islam by their violent behavior.

    //poke fun at Muslims who give a bad name to Islam by their violent behavior.//

    Yes unfortunately there are extremists in all religions. Muslims just get the most air time on TV.

    // ohh come on its ur blog, your space… don’t allow urself to be judged //by others
    Actually I don’t want to give the wrong impression about the blog to other. πŸ™‚

    NaNO3, Well not really. That’s my avatar. That’s my girl CY.

    Nice blog, sister. Keep it up!

  11. 12 BM January 3, 2008 at 11:18 am

    ‘Sheikh that thing’ category cracked me up, have an image of a stern faced Mullah doing the Harlem shake.

  12. 13 Amina Ae Sook January 3, 2008 at 3:08 pm

    Xalimah, Thanks!

    BM: That’s a good idea, perhaps I should try to sign up somone to do that. lol

  13. 14 kimiam January 5, 2008 at 4:01 am

    What? Muslims are human? :P~ Nice, refreshing blog and a monumental task you’ve set for yourself.

  14. 15 Amina Ae Sook January 5, 2008 at 5:23 pm

    Surprising ain’t it. :p

    Monumental task, o great!

    Assalamu’alaykum,

    Thanks for the comment on my blog. Best of luck with yours, insha-Allah; may Allah give you success in your endeavours.

  16. 17 delhi4cats January 10, 2008 at 11:54 am

    I love your perspective and goals! When too many people hear the word “Muslim” or “Islam” the unfortunate reaction is fear and trepidation BECAUSE it is unknown and the press have many times exasberated that perception. Therefore making it approachable and understandable via humor is applauded!

    Keep it up!

  17. 18 Amina Ae Sook January 27, 2008 at 9:24 am

    Hey guys and gals, sorry for the late replies.

    hi Faraz wa salamz, Ameen to your duas.

    American Bedu, Thanks for the compliments. Muzlums, I mean Muslims, are usually presented as a monolith so that’s doubly irritating. I hope people do find Umm lol cats more approachable. Ameen to that!

  18. 19 Lofter January 27, 2008 at 4:45 pm

    As a Christian, I appreciate and share your POV of common tolerance for those of different faiths… after all, there is no limit as to whom we can each learn from. I feel we share a very similar sense of humor, and look forward to reading what you have to share!
    Thanks for the comment on my blog, as well. Hope to hear more from you there, too! πŸ˜€

  19. 20 Amina Ae Sook January 28, 2008 at 9:25 pm

    Welcome to the blog Lofter. Yes there is a lot that we can learn and we should try to go beyond the common caricatures that people have of each other. Hope you stick around and see you again here.

    The Hello Kitty stuff is funny. I don’t know how Yosemite Sam translates for you–but the insistence on the beard as a sign of purity and Yosemite Sam’s gruffness and dislike for anything outside of himself…well, it all fits well with the image of people in any society who are unable to show empathy. Ms. Sook, are you familiar with the phrase, “Never criticize a man until you’ve walked a mile in his moccasins?” It’s a saying from the Native Americans that we could use to solve lots of the world’s problems.

  21. 22 stinger February 3, 2008 at 4:10 pm

    Nice blog. πŸ™‚ I like your concept. Arrogant mullahs have destroyed Islam…

  22. 23 Amina Ae Sook February 5, 2008 at 4:51 pm

    rationalpsychic, I am glad that you liked it. You point about Yosemite Sam – exactly my thoughts. I have not heard the Native American phrase before but it does make a lot of sense but sometimes there are shoes that one cannot really walk into. πŸ™‚

    stinger, yes they have done their best (worst?) to do so but there are still a lot and I do mean a lot of good Muslims out there. They just need more air time.

  23. 24 simplymuslim February 11, 2008 at 5:49 pm

    Assalamu Alaikum,
    You were the first to comment on my blog. Thanks a LOT!!!

  24. 25 stinger February 17, 2008 at 7:37 pm

    Is it you in the picture? I didn’t notice it before. πŸ˜› If its you, well I had pictured you in a totally different way… (The girl in the picture doesn’t look Korean enough πŸ˜› )

  25. 26 Amina Ae Sook February 20, 2008 at 5:10 am

    waalaikumsalam simplymuslim, You are welcome. πŸ™‚

    stinger, I don’t go public but that’s my girl Chae Yeon who would be a good surrogate for me. Pictured me differently? What? CY not Korean enough? Ok that’s it I am doing that post on Korea 101

  26. 27 stinger February 20, 2008 at 7:41 pm

    I can differentiate Korean people from Chinese people based on the difference in their Mandarin accent. Though I don’t speak or understand Mandarin, (except for “vo aye ni” πŸ˜€ ) Koreans just seem to speak it differently. And yeah, Koreans can speak English a lot better!

    I had pictured you differently because I thought you took hijab/scarf.

  27. 28 stinger February 20, 2008 at 7:43 pm

    And yeah, add “ni pialian” to the phrases of Chinese that I understand (and have uttered) πŸ˜›

  28. 29 dontbesadblog February 21, 2008 at 2:39 pm

    Peace be upon you,

    The cartoons are coming along well–they certainly have the potential to reach a wide audience. Good of you to pass by at Dont be sad. Just visiting to get the word out– have you managed to visityour neighbour’s yet? Please do, to help create our community.

    Kind regards,

    Dont be sad

  29. 30 Amina Ae Sook February 24, 2008 at 10:39 pm

    stinger, The quite Far Eastern hijabi convert. This is the typical stereotype of Far Eastern Muslim women. Since you are not the first person to assume that I am a hijabi so I will let you off this time.

    Peace be upon you also Don’t be sad. Thanks for stopping by again. Yes insha’Allah I will tour the neighborhood soon.

  30. 31 stinger February 25, 2008 at 9:16 am

    Hijab in essence has nothing to do with any stereotype. I would be disturbed if would say that you don’t take hijab because it makes you stereotypical.

    People, in order to come out of one stereotype, create another for themselves. How does that make anything better?

    God is not going to judge anyone by the “stereotype”. He’s gonna judge how fair is one to himself. “zalamtu nafsi” is the keyword here. If you think you are justifying the voice of truth inside you, thats all you need, stereotypical or not.

    “ni pialian” can be siad to hijabis too. πŸ˜› πŸ˜€

  31. 32 Amina Ae Sook February 25, 2008 at 3:13 pm

    No, no no. That’s not what I meant. My comment was neither pro nor against hijab but rather about the fact that people think about a certain image when they think about Far Eastern Muslim women. Just like any other region of the world there are hijabis and there are non-hijabis. Got it?

  32. 33 stinger February 25, 2008 at 6:53 pm

    You are the first Korean Muslim woman I’ve known. Indonesians/Malaysians are a totally different kind of people than Koreans. I didn’t have a stereotype in mind.

    I assumed you were a hijabi based on the thoughts you present on your blog.

    The header I was gonna make for you had a lolcat in hijab. :/ Now I’ll have to think of something else. :/

  33. 34 Amina Ae Sook February 26, 2008 at 4:38 am

    O ok, that makes sense. Well you can still retain the Hijab for the header, after all I do wear a hijab for prayers. πŸ™‚

  34. 35 stinger February 27, 2008 at 8:53 pm

    Yeah yeah 😐 How about I make a lol cat in a strapless dress instead? 😐 and put some Quranic verse in the background? 😐

  35. 36 Amina Ae Sook February 28, 2008 at 3:03 am

    That would be — weird. 😐 Like I said this aint me but this is the closet person that I could find. Live with it! As Popeye would say I yam what I yam. Take a chill pill dude. πŸ™‚
