We all had the pleasure of meeting some of them, whether through social media or in real life Wink


Ten Species of Angry Muslim Men
You are sitting comfortably in an assembly of Muslim men. Women are, as usual, segregated and safely secluded in a different room – as far as possible. Conversation is flowing with endless cups of chai as you begin to listen carefully to this fairly representative sample of Muslim masculinities. What are you going to hear? The discussion would inevitably focus on Islam with, as in any human gathering, a host of different views and positions. But there will be a certain variety, Little Big Men Little Overblown, who will be jostling each other to claim that they are the only true representative of God on earth. So here is a list of the type of Muslim men you may encounter in a typical gathering anywhere on the planet.

Don't like that article at all. It should be offensive to all Muslims. Everyone is struggling to practice their Deen, why make fun of that in such a deragatory way.

Agreed, that everyone is struggling to practice their deen.... but there's a clear difference between recognizing that also in others and therefore being merciful and compassionate towards them, rather than going around condemning everyone in a harsh and rigid manner—believing that their Islam is the only way...

Quote
The Qur’an says to the Prophet Muhammad, God’s peace and blessings be upon him, “It is a mercy from your Lord that you are so gentle toward them. If you had been harsh and hard-hearted, people would have fled from your presence” (3:159). It is indeed the harshness and obstinacy of some overly zealous Muslims today, combined with the absence of mercy in their hearts, which is driving people out of Islam and deterring others from considering or even respecting it. They are conducting themselves based upon some misguided adherence to their understanding of Islam. They are uncertain in themselves, and so they feel threatened by anyone who might differ with them; through fanaticism, they attempt to protect themselves from doubt but result in only obscuring their view. Fanatics are blinded by the light of God as opposed to guided by it. The Prophet, God’s peace and blessings be upon him, warned of these people when he said, “Perish they who go to extremes.” We should try our utmost not to be one of them. —Shaykh Hamza Yusuf

But it didn't come off as funny at all to me. It repeated the same thing over and over. 'Maniac Muslim' did a much better job of being funny, this was just mean.

Oh well, I don’t see how this is mean to every kind of Muslim that exists… You guys need to lighten up… there are some truth to this article; it all depends on how you view it.

Yeah, there's a line between funny and offensive that is very fine, subjective and movable. But this one totally crossed it imho.

I think that is a classification of weirdo muslims. 

most muslims aren't weirdos like that.  but we always remember the weirdos.   that's that problem.

i didn't fit into any of those categories.
