bidat-2

Yes I’m a ”bidat” person and so are you

I’m a bidat person because I think destroying the belongings and houses of our Messenger and of his companions were wrong
I’m a bidat person because I believe that no building should be higher around the Kaaba
I’m a bidat person because I fast and try to pray extra on days like Mawlid, Berat, Ashura, Miraj, and the night of Rajab. No They’re not eid festival in my books
I’m a bidat person because I look up for the proper etiquette for everything in my daily life. Do you? Start with beard etiquette in Islam and hats only Muslim men should wear.
I’m a bidat person because I believe in democracy and no patriarchy
I’m a bidat person because I think burqas and niqabs tend to be elements of fitna
I’m a bidat person because I enjoy 5 before 5
I’m a bidat person because I minimize my interaction with the opposite sex. If you’re not mahram to me you can bet you won’t drive me anywhere around town
I’m a bidat person because I stay silent when words fail me. If they don’t, I wittily tell you my thoughts without shoving them down your throat like bitter medicine
I’m a bidat person because I talk and write about sex education so openly
I’m a bidat person because I don’t rush to start or end the month of Ramadhan
I’m a bidat person because I celebrate my birthday and care less about other hallmark events
I’m a bidat person because I’m not a hypocrite in my own daily life choices
I’m a bidat person because you say so
I’m a bidat person because I think a bloody spy led you astray
I’m a bidat person because I don’t know all the facets of Islam. Seems like you ”do”
I’m a bidat person because I ignore the haram police
I’m a bidat person just because I follow a respected madhab and not a revived sect
I’m a bidat person because I don’t listen to ‘Adams’ who think they can dictate me

I’m a bidat person because only Allah knows best

Open Mic, meet floor. I’m out!
