EMPLOYER UNCOMFORTABLE WITH MUSLIM MAID PRAYING IN HEAD-TO-TOE GARB

I just got a new Indonesian Muslim maid, she previously worked in Saudi. I just realized that she had been praying every night (bumped into it last night), don’t know if she prays at other times too. I have no major issue with her praying, but when she prays she is in the full head-to-toe gear, with only eyes visible. I don’t want my girl or mother to get a fright if they see her praying in that gear. Do you think it will be unreasonable for me to ask her not to wear that gear if she insists on praying?

INDIAN MUSLIM: MY CHINESE CLASSMATE QUESTIONED MY LOYALTY TO THE COUNTRY BECAUSE OF MY RELIGION

I am Singaporean Indian Muslim, but because my mother tongue is Malay, most Chinese friends would assume I'm Malay. I was asked by a classmate of mine (Chinese) whether I would defend Singapore if we were at War with Malaysia. She was genuinely asking and wanted me to answer. I was taken aback because my loyalty towards my nation was being questioned for the first time in my life. I would not call it deliberate racism on her part but because of the notion she has or was brought up with, it led her to question my loyalty.

Ever since then, every Friday she does the same for me.

MUSLIM: SHOULD I DIVORCE MY CHINESE WIFE BECAUSE SHE PREVENTS OUR KIDS FROM VISITNG MY PARENTS

I am in an inter-racial marriage. I'm a Muslim while my wife is a Chinese free-thinker. We've known each other for more than half a lifetime and married for 12 years. Since we got married, she has never stepped foot into my parents' home and she has disallowed me to bring our 2 kids (10 and 2) to see my parents. Even know she knows that she is being unreasonable, my wife once said that she doesn't like my family to the extent that she doesn't want to be associated with them. She admits that maybe she is afraid that our kids will become Muslim.

IS THE RECENT SPATE OF CAT KILLINGS IN YISHUN RACIALLY MOTIVATED?

The recent spate of cat killings isn't simple. It is racially motivated. Cats are the favorite pet/animals of Muslim/Malays. So this recent spate of cat killings may very well be a message being sent to the community of races who love these felines that they tend to let their cats roam around and shit everywhere.

STRUGGLES OF A MUSLIMAH: RELIGION IS MORE IMPORTANT THAN HAPPINESS IN A RELATIONSHIP

My first three boyfriends were Chinese (Taoist, Buddhist and atheist), my current is one of those westernized Muslim man. My mom was very relieved when I started dating the Muslim, and honestly, I'm just doing it because he's rich, good-looking and shares the same born religion - please don't judge me, it's really that hard to find a Malay-Muslim man in Singapore who can make money. I don't really love him, he's so much older and all we ever do is sleep with each other. But my mom's happy he's Muslim, my dad's happy he's rich, and I don't have to be broken up with again because of my religion, so why not?

FILIPINO FOREIGN TALENT CLAIMS CHRISTIANS CANNOT EAT HALAL FOOD?

On a forum, I see a post about a filipino foreign talent comment on the Singapore Carls Junior facebook page. He ask a really funny question on whether the burger was halal and nxt said that as Christian he cannot eat halal food. I wonder how true is this teaching? Are christians forbidden to eat food that was prayed or blessed by other religions? With more foreigners coming into singapore, I hope more sensibility will be put to this area. Hoping this is not true or it be hard for friends to eat together in future.

COUNCIL OF EX-MUSLIMS: CALVIN CHENG’S COMMENTS ARE WRONG

Here at CEMSG, Council of Ex-Muslims of Singapore, we're living proof that children do not adhere to the religion their parents adhere to. If something as strong as filial obligation to religion can be cast aside by the children of religious parents, what makes you think extremist ideology is impossible?
