More irrational hatred of mobile phones

I have in the past spoken at length about my irrational dislike of those pesky mobile thingies. Well, let the irrationality continue unabated!

Some quotes:

  • Very few things in life force you to put your phone down and concentrate. And when you do concentrate on the non phone thing, you rarely do so with as much brain power as you would with your phone. – Anon
  • People used to say ‘Bismillah’ before they started to eat. Now they say ‘Instagram’. – Anon

Some images that prove my point rather well:

Phone 1

Phone 2

A brilliant article by Umm AbdelRahman Murphy entitled ‘Cell Phones vs. Qur’an‘:

I wonder what would happen if we were to treat the Qur’an the same way that we treat our cell phones.

What if..

…we carried it around in our purses or pockets?
…we made sure to go back to get it if we forgot it?
…we flipped through it several times a day?
…we used it to receive messages from the text?
…we treated it like we couldn’t live without it?
…we gave it to our kids as gifts?
…we used it as we traveled?
…we used it in cases of emergencies?

Hopefully this short reminder makes us stop and think, “Where is my Qur’an?” Remember to use your time in Ramadan for Qur’an, insha’Allah (God willing)!
