:D

 

there are no masjids in Uruguay. But we go on Fridays to the Egyptian Embassy, that has an Islamic Centre of Culture and has a sheik, his job has to do with certifing food I guess, but he is our sheik too :D

 

The amount of muslims that go n Friday must be 20 men and 4 women. But there must be more muslims, some go only on Eid or if theres a party :P

 

There are some irani muslims but they dont come on fridays, at least not often. Although they were invited to a breakfast in Ramadan and their ambassador invited us to his house too for another one :P

 

Being muslim here its a bit hard, because theres no muslim community. I reverted this year and foudn out that they have never gathered for some dinner, or to hang out. So I asked htem if they wanted to play a football match altogether, they said yes (even the sheik (w00t) ) but the next Friday only one said he could go..

 

There are no muslim shops to buy halal meat. And its hard to tell the women that I cant kiss them. Even a muslim sister kissed me once to say bye :D

 

wa alaikum salam

The rate of prejudice views held by westerners is increasing and the fear of the growth of Islam is rapidly multiplying....For the sake of my brothers and sisters in Uruquay i hope things are made easier and that Allah (swt) protects you and your families.

lol...what is the world coming too ey?

 

Does living in Uruquay make you feel uneasy because Muslims are the minority?

 

p.s-i ask alot of questions, if you mind do say so brother and i apoligize in advance if my words have wronged you.

wa alaykum salaam sister,

 

There are different types of minorities....muslims are a minority in UK, but if in Uruguay we had the same percentage of muslims you have there it would be awesome...

 

When the only salat in jamaat is the friday one, cant speak to a sheikh and 99% of what you learn is from the inernet...
