Islamic Arts Feature: Cartoons, by Abu Ilyas

Published

Welcome to the another edition of MuslimMatters.org’s regular Islamic Art feature. If you want to see your work on MM, then either email us your images to art[@]muslimmatters[.]org or submit them to our Flickr group.

The following are a selection of comic strips produced by brother Abu Ilyas, for his humour-filled blog, Dots Under Consonants. I hope they bring a little laughter into your day. The first one definitely spoke to me!

Dr Mehzabeen b. Ibrahim joined MuslimMatters as a blogger in late 2007 under the handle 'iMuslim', whilst still a struggling grad student. Since then, she has attained a PhD in Molecular Biology and a subsequent Masters in Bioinformatics, and now works as a specialist in this field for a well-known British, medical charity, masha'Allah. Somewhere in between she found the time to get married, alhamdulillah. She likes to dabble in photo and videography, a sample of which can be found on her personal blog: iMuslim.tv.

    Haha! I loved the first one- it reminded me of the time when I was interviewed by my college newspaper, assuming I was new to the place, “the place” being the country where I was born and raised and educated- and was told at the end of the interview that my English was “actually pretty good!” :s

      I remember someone praised me on my beard for “holding strong to my country’s background” and proceeded to tell me my accent wasn’t even noticeable. It’s funny how the brain works, I was born and raised in Toronto!

        What I really hate is when Muslims see your beard and think your holding on to culture, not Islam.

          We’re a self-hating bunch, apparently. If a sister wears niqab she must be self-righteous, if a brother has a beard, he must be uneducated and sporting facial hair just because everyone else in his country does too. We really ought to cut ourselves some slack, SubhanAllah!

    Baraka Allahu feekum, for the positive comments everyone.

    And just in passing I’m a school teacher and so unfortunately the classroom scenario is not nostalgia for me but an everyday scene, albeit from the other side of the desk now. :-)
