Please Oh Please

Please oh please tell me something I don't know! I initially received the 411 I am including below from the Mecca One Radio listserv. However, I was subsequently reminded by: Saira Lari, Angie Ellaboudy, Jameelah Shukri, Suwila Habib, Sophia Majeed and Marya Bangee that it is true - there is little if any hope - there is officially a "Muslim guy shortage."

Tune in this Thursday, March 8th, if you're as curious as I am to find out what the scholars have to say about the matter.



On a related note: my brother has countered all of this by saying there is a parallel shortage of good Muslim sisters.

Angie said...

LOL!! it's their radio show huda... it gets downloaded onto their website (kinda like the one amir and marya did for msa west) but i think you have to be in norcal to actually hear it live...

this is going to be entertaining..

there is a muslim girl shortage, why is there no middle ground sort of sister out there? Instead there are superstar activists and then there are "its my way or the highway" gals who are so independent that marriage just isnt an option. So I think Muslims guys are in the same boat!

Suwila said...

okay...clarification. there isn't a Muslim guy shortage, per se. they are out there. but there is a shortage in active, religious-minded bros who want to make a difference in the community.

Dr. Shukri said...

No I am pretty sure on the bro shortage, how many countless intellectual, profound, active, spiritual, and aesthetically gorgeous sistas are there out there A LOT and yet how many intellectual, profound, active, spiritual, and decent looking bros are there out there who can respect a dignified sister step to her and want to start a future.....wait was that none yeah i thought so...
