My brother drove me to Dubai yesterday to meet Aaida. As we crossed the first interchange into the city, I noticed the banner on it:
It sent a shiver down my spine. I was hesitant about posting such an arrogant statement on my blog. This punch line reeks of all the arrogance there ever could be. Why can't they add a Mashallah or Alhamdulillah or something? A lot of things about the development in Dubai baffle me. Every now and then you have to turn around and go, "are they Muslims?".
It's a Muslim country. The rulers and everyone here know the teachings of Islam. They know the Islamic history. Makkah is not too far away.
