MIN D@R MeEN INTI?!?!



ok title literal translation : FROM WhoSE HOUSE ARE U!! real meaning " WHAT IS UR FAMILY NAME?" yes arabic when translated to english is a disaster! hhe ok... so PICTURE THIS...

U meet a group of people for the first time... the first thing they ask u.. " MIN DAR MEEN INTI?" so ur like.. " bla bla" suddenly from the expression on thier FACE U KNOW they are searching the FAMILY NAME DATA BASE in thier mind.. trying to recall if they KNOW anyone from ur family... and ofcourse if ur an ARAB YES THEY ALWAYS know... someone that is sittt abu 2im ukht khalet jiditak!! or ur greatgranmothers nieghbors SON IN LAW... lol

so u either get the DELIGHTED lOOK of APPROVAL.. or the FAKE SMILE followed by a sudden excuse to end the COnversation... then they whisper somethin To the ANOTHER lady next to them :P lol

soo after a long silence and deep concentration is as if a LIGHT BULB appears on the top of their head... then starts the million questions on " bt3aarfi 7aanafi ibn Mirvat?" or " mo3taz ibni was with u in university" yes anti i memorize all the names of all the students in the university(sarcasm)

Or even better when im im amman i say i came from dubai they start giving me names of all the ppl they know in dubai... as if dubai is a mini-playground and as soon as u go u all know each other... wait u know sometimes i actually DO end up knowing some of the names lol it is small world...

Sometimes the older generation that most probably grew up with my parents or grandparents start giving me names of ppl thier age... hmmmm sorry i dont even know UR NAME 3amo so pls stop asking me if i know the anti who fed me falafel when i was 2!! i dont even remember wha i ate yesterday!! chances are i WONT REMEMBER lol

US ARAbs we talk alot... and we ALL know each other somehow.. Especially if ur Palestinian or JOrDANIAN !!

BUt what i hate the most is how they have the need to LABEL U!! like as soon as they know ur family name they rememeber someone who is or is not related to u with the same family name... so according to that persons impression on them or reputation then u are either
" GOOD" or "BAD".... like if one person or 2 in one family is a CHEAPO the whole family is "BUKHALA" if one person is a "7arami" (thief) the whole family is "7arameyeh"...
I HATE THAT...

i hate being judged for my own actions let alone SOMEONE ELSES!! its like why should anyone be judged by his name? family?nationality? or any other stereotype... ive seen brothers that are total opposites.. ive seen GOOD parents with the worst children! IVE seen BAd parents with GOOD kids!!

Why wont ppl stop judging others?? i dont care iza ibn 3am ukht abu sitee used to be a SERIAL killeR!!

Prophet Noahs Son was not a believer.. Prophet Ibraheem's DAD was not a believer... and those were PROPHETS!! imagine THEM being judged by thier Fathers or sons?!????

So ppl next time you want to judge anyone... just DONT!!


On a Rather Islamic Note this is Reminder : Ayyub (Allah be pleased with him) relates that the Messenger of Allah (blessings and peace be upon him, his family, and companions) said, “Whoever fasts Ramadan and follows it with six days from Shawwal it is as if they fasted the entire year.” [Muslim, Abu Dawud, Tirmidhi, and Ibn Majah; Ahmad transmitted it from Jabir, Muntaqa]

ONLY 15 days left for Shawwal to be over :) so yalla shido il himmeh :)

You are so right on with "its like why should anyone be judged by his name? family?nationality? or any other stereotype"

I think its because people just don't want to go through the process of thinking for themselves. So, its easier to pass judgment based on old news and stereotypes, and move onto the next person. This definitely crosses cultures, and certainly is not limited to Arab cultures!

Great post, really! Love the reference to the Prophets (AS).

Happy love said...

ya3ne ARAB what else do u expect :)

good afternoon dudes. I'm actually into shoes and I was digging for that particular brand. The prices for the velcros were about 190 pounds on every site. But definitively I base this locate selling them for half price. I in reality like these [url=http://www.shoesempire.com]prada sneakers[/url]. I will absolutely order those. what do you think?
