haha right now i am laughing
i just had a little ummm encounter
Just came from the home of a friend.
My friend shares an apartment with another youth, and at different times,when i go there,i will see other youths,either friends of my friend or friends of the youth he shares the house with.
There is one young man,a muslim youth, whom i have seen a few times there,but i dont know him , as he is a friend of the youth that my friend shares the house with.
Anyway, as i said i have seen him there a few times, and i guess he started to feel comfortable with i, so, one day, he comes in the house,i was there already, and he says loudly "Jah Rastafari"
you know,on some hype up,jump up thing.
But i didnt take it in any bad way, i just said, yes,you know!
Then he did it a second time on a different occasion.
I didnt say anything then, i just looked at him. I was still looking to see where his heart was at, and i let it pass
Today,i was sitting at the table, and he came in.
Immediately, i hear, "Jah Rastafari"
I was at the table,building a spliff. I pushed everything away and stood up.
I said, come here, and sat him down where i was sitting. He was still smiling
You are muslim right? he says yes
So now i start acting just like he does,when he says my Fathers Name.
How would you like it if everytime i saw you i started shouting
Allah Allah Allah hu Akbar?
Smile disapeared from his face.
I asked him, do we understand eachother? He says yes. I say alright, now move from my chair
After that the whole time,he was there,he had a look of anger on his face, but he couldnt say anything because there was another Muslim in the house, and he kept telling the youth, you know you were wrong,you know you were wrong.
Finally, i didnt want to leave any animosity so i asked him,
did you feel disrespected when i said that? he said yes.
I said good, so know you know how i felt
I told him if he ever wished to know more of Rastafari than what he saw,on stage shows,and videos, to come and ask i, with respect. Whatever your religion,if you love God,then we can reason all day.
Rastafari is Unconqourable
Blessed are they that call upon HIM Name
