Halal Joke

by Br Ali Baastein

There were two white Christian men, Adam and Jack, whose plane crashed into a desert. Luckily they survived unharmed. As they traveled through the hot desert looking for food and water, they gave up and sat down, thinking of what to do. As the dust in the air settled, they suddenly could view a mosque ahead. They became very hopeful. But then Adam said 'Muslims are there. They might help us if we say we are muslim.' Then Jack said 'No way, I won't say I'm Muslim, I'm gonna be honest'.

So Adam and Jack went to the Mosque ahead and were greeted by the Imam (sheikh), who asked what their names were. Adam thought of a Muslim name and said, 'My name is Muhammad'. And Jack said 'My name is Jack'. The Imam said 'Hello Jack.' And told these other men to take Jack and give him food and drink.

Then he turned to Adam and said, 'Salaam Muhammad. Ramadan Mubarak!'
