Where the Islam-esque Wave Broke II

Posted: July 30, 2011 in Uncategorized

Took me an hour almost to get to Tahrir from Nile City Towers on Maspero Corniche.. Travel Buses with names like ‘El Reda Tours’ were double-parked starting from 15th of May bridge ramp headed to Zamalek. Then a sea of Salafis big-eyed and each experiencing the city in their own way- as all the license plates were Gharbiyya, Qalyubiyya governorates & the likes : )

Salafis Heading Back to Hometowns

Towards the end there is a guy carrying a sign ‘Al Shaab Yureed Tahkim EL Kitab’ which translates to .. [The People want the Rule of The Book]…

First back & forth between Islamiyya [Islam-esque] & Madaniyya [Civilian] Rule

First back & forth between Islamiyya [Islam-esque] & Madaniyya [Civilian] Rule I witness on entering circle..

It seemd that Tahrir once again belonged to the people that have put in the time & effort and love…

Until you watch the Salafi on stage in a later video trying to place the poison in the honey with his first words of.. Egypt was always Islamiyya & shall always remain so… Between us are the ballot boxes! In any case the Shari3a does not conflict with the civilian rule, he compromises…

Salafi on Stage

Salafi on Stage demonstrates the ‘one democratic vote one time’ logic.. which is the myth of how to effect Islamic rule…

Salafi on stage trying to place the poison in the honey with his first words of.. Egypt was always Islamiyya & shall always remain so… Between us are the ballot boxes!

In any case the Shari3a does not conflict with the civilian rule, he compromises…

Well maybe not, but definitely your interpretation of it will..

Stop playing on people’s emotions and using slogans that you are the first to discard..

Who do you think you are to compare yourslef to Omar Ibn El Khattab.. These beautiful Salaf were walking spiritual manifestations of The Qoraan

Last ‘Islamiyya’ VS ‘Madaniyya’ Showdown of the Night…

Few guyz were later to depart than the rest of the Islam-esque crowd.. the crowd joyfully simply drowned their voices with the sea of voices shouting ‘Madaniyya’ in their wake… : )

Last ‘Islamiyya’ VS ‘Madaniyya’ Showdown of the Night… II

Few guyz were later to depart than the rest of the Islam-esque crowd.. the crowd joyfully simply drowned their voices with the sea of voices shouting ‘Madaniyya’ in their wake… : )

[ Madaniyya Flag ] Last ‘Islamiyya’ VS ‘Madaniyya’ Showdown of the Night… III

Group of guyz holding enormous Egypt flag [not Saudi] put the argument to rest..

Few guyz were later to depart than the rest of the Islam-esque crowd.. the crowd joyfully simply drowned their voices with the sea of voices shouting ‘Madaniyya’ in their wake… : )

Dostorna El Modastar men el Shari3a el Islamiyya Kamilan !

Dostorna el modastar [our ‘written constitution’], heathen, hukm el sa7ir [punishment for a ‘magician’], el khamr [for drinking alcohol], Iqamet el 7add lil zinaa [for Fornication Under no Consent from the King- or Emir] , Watch as this Salafi ‘sheikh’ makes a kafir out of me & friend who were discussing points on various topics…

Personal rights.. music, art & personal liberties…

Word & theology juggling at its best : )

Main Question: Who do they delegate ‘ruling’ and judging to?! Who’s views do they uphold & follow?! as opposed to this catch-me-if-you-can between different riwayat & conceding on some points with less popular riwayat to moderate sheikhs, so as not to appear opressive & excluding of the ‘other’

 

Ahu Da lli Sar- Sayyed Darwidh song

Best thing I’ve heard in alooong time coming from Anani’s stage.. Ahu Da lli Sar- Sayyed Darwidh song

 

Break for kebda sandwiches with the guys and ran into a few remaining signs left by the Islam-esque that were more in-clusive…

Qatil .. Safah

 

 

Just want a chance to do you right baby...

 

Then chanced upon a lovely couple in Talaat Harb who came especially to join sit-in tonight ! Bless them : )

Sign by Couple Sitting-in

 

Back to the Midan…

Ramy Essam & ‘yasqut yasqut hokm el askar’ then Speaker cheerz on crowd

Ramy Essam’s new version of El Shaab Yureed Isqaat Al Nizam.. which replaces ‘yasqut yasqut Hosni Mubarak’ with ‘yasqut yasqut hokm el askar’
