Caption This: Ramadan Hookahs

Published

Though it might be hard to match the success of the last caption contest (the unofficial winner chosen by me was the ‘second wife’ caption), we thought we would give it another shot. Check out the picture below, and let us know how you’d caption it.

The following image comes via Google Maps StreetView.

    brozers, its ramadan, enjoy it now. Each sinful puff of hookah will be forgiven by each rakah of taraweeh. For 8-rakah taraweeh, it’s 8 puffs, for 20-rakah, it’s 20 puffs. More proof that 20 is truth.

    Introducing the new iftar menu! For a limited time only, you’ll enjoy hookahs like dates, samosas, rasmalai, pakore, and much, much more…

    Bismillah..

    I know it’s just meant to be a caption and so on, but is it really correct to start making light of something that is more than likely something haram, and hated by Allah jalla wa’ala. Allah knows best

    I hope I haven’t offended anyone, jzk

    Not making light of it br. Abu Abdurrahman. Highlighting the foolishness and “wrongness” of people who join blessed Ramadan with wretched smoking. Sometimes parodies get the message across more than lectures.

    And the “serious” article is linked in the post, hopefully, encouraging people to read the serious side along with this light post.

    jazakallahkhair for ur concerns though.

    Sorry for that… and jazakumAllahu khairan Amad bhai. I should have taken proper notice. I didn’t see the article at first. Hookah seems to really be catching on here in the UK, especially at uni’s. Inshallah it’ll be a good reminder for everyone.

    Wassalamu ‘alaykum wa rahmatullah

    ok, there are two abu abdurrahman’s on MM. I spell mine with no caps and the other spells with capital A’s.

    One puff, and you’re sure to see the moon!

    I think this one is the best so far:

    Happy Ramadan, Shaytan is in Jail but the Hookahs are on sale!

    lol

    Apparently the tobacco’s not the only thing going up in smoke.

    On the bright side, at least it says ‘Happy Ramadan Hookahs’ and not ‘Happy Ramadan Hookers’.
