    I’m not sure what you’re trying to say (or why) Amad, but in any case, I am sure of one thing: he deserved it!

    I think a lot of husbands can empathize with lion “king”.

    I think iMuslim’s comment proved Amad’s point :)

    You guys have it all wrong. The captions are as follows.

    Lioness
    : Can you hear anything?

    Lion: Hold on, I’m trying to make out what they’re saying! Something about a transfer to San Diego???

    Lioness
    : Those blasted humans! Next time they come bring us food I’m gonna have them for lunch!

    WHAT DO YOU MEAN SECOND WIFE?????????????

    May 29, 2008 at 12:15 PM

    HAHAHA. Listen, sister, Islam allows limited polygyny, okay?

  13. Amad

    May 29, 2008 at 12:16 PM

    well she does all the hunting

    Yes, she does all the hunting and all the hAunting as well.

    What is interesting is that so many Muslim men would relate to this post, not dissimilar to most other cultures. So much for the oppressed-wife stereotype when even Hassan, the punjabi sher, relates to it! In fact, I would venture to guess that the majority of desi husbands are essentially hen-pecked, even if they act like lions outside :) At least, that’s what my wife wants me to believe :)

    Lioness: How does my breath smell?

    May 29, 2008 at 2:51 PM

    Lioness: I want to go to an AlMaghrib course, i want to go, YOU PROMISED MISTER! Grrrrrrr

    Lion: I know honey, but i..i..i..ummm….c..c..can..t…can i have my keys please.

    Lioness: *twinckle in the eye* you need your keys eh? hahahaha

    Lion: uh oh

    SubhanAllah that made me laugh

    A woman can control her husband by her treatment towards him….he trully becomes the slave of the house….lol….well sometimes!

    that was a size L hide, not your “regular” M? now, now, let me look carefully, it does look loose on you… why didn’t you buy the right size girl?

    Hey, anyone who can relate emotionally to the above image may want to consider reading:

    Men are from Mars, Women are From Venus
    and

    Mars and Venus Together Forever: Relationship Skills for Lasting Love

    The latter is awesome sisters:) Please read it. I kid you not, the $15.00 will change the way you deal with men.

    Brother may wish to browse through it if they feel like they just don’t get women and their “feelings”; if they don’t, it’s no big deal.

    But the men forget that in every other culture the woman walks out for the smallest thing that she cant adjust to. Its only us that really give in and give in and keep giving in!! So there are days when we deserve to be like the lioness in the pic!!

    You forgot to add this:

    “*Please note that the opinions expressed in this post, like all op-ed pieces on MM, represent the viewpoint of the author, and are not necessarily endorsed by all MM writers*”

    This is such a widely-read site, yet I find some of your articles are too biased.

    im reading something completely different from the pic… too me it looks like the lion is wasted, maybe tried to sneak in late at night after a “haram night out” only to catch the mrs. awake and waiting…

    lioness…”WHOSE WHISKERS ARE THOSE ON YOUR MANE!!!!”

    Astagh! silly kafirs…

    A salaamu aleikum

    I’m new to this sight and perhaps I don’t fit in, but I’m Muslim
    so
    my opinion matters :-)

    All jokes aside
    this is not the way Allah wants us to treat each other

    considering the status of most marriages and people’s fears about entering marriage (thus leaving themselves at risk of committing sin)

    I wish we wouldn’t spend so much time joking about this

    If today’s women are whiners, complainers, lashing out at their husbands…

    It seems both men AND women are at fault.

    Sisters ought to do their best to show their husbands respect
    Brothers ought to do their best to maintain the respect of their wives.

    Give us reason to admire you, to be pleased with you, to be proud of you.

    perhaps the ingredients for happily ever after.

    Lioness: “I’ve brought you dinner for the last five years, put up with all your bad habits, and taught your cubs every useful thing they know — and you walk in here saying Practimate looks like a good idea?!?!?!?!?” If you like Shaykh Yaser so much, maybe you should go live in his den!
