Farmington Hills, MI – The Best Buy uniform worn by the Khateeb, (title for the person giving a sermon) at Friday prayers did not go unnoticed by worshippers at the Farmington Hills Islamic Center. Congregants made a probable assumption that he was headed back to work right after this.
During his sermon, 26 year old Musa Ibrahim likened extended protection plans, and bonus point perks to supplemental acts of obedience.
“Brothers and Sisters, sure it’s not obligatory to fast outside of Ramadan,” lectured Ibrahim, as he spoke about the Prophetic tradition of fasting on Thursdays throughout the year. “But we could all use the extra reward points to get into heaven, and redeem those non-expiring certificates for when we expire.”
He went on to compare the levels of heaven, and used the analogy of general audio inventory versus what’s available in the higher-end Magnolia section of the store.
“He really pushed hard on that extended protection plan comparison,” commented regular mosque attendee, as he sat down in the lobby to put his shoes back on. “Up until that sermon, I doubted my faith. But now everything has gotten much more clear, vivid with unbelievable black levels, higher refresh rates and improved motion blur processing.”
“And remember brothers and sisters, if you’re ever feeling alone and in need of help, you can always reach out to me,” said Ibrahim in closing. “It doesn’t have to be me, it can be anyone from the community, as none of us work on commission.”
