On Saturday and Sunday, Mufti Ismail Menk spoke at the Muslim Fair put on by ROU, Trinidad at the Manny Ramjohn (or Rum-John to hear Menk say it) Stadium. The topic was ‘transformation’.
In his usual inimitable style (and quite suited for ADD inclined persons), he addressed the chain of social interactions which we execute almost daily. Sample: your want an iphone 7 because so and so has it, but you don’t realise that china had dual sim phones before Korea, and that in an effort to be romantic but not lie, this husband responded to his wife’s question about how much did he love her, the husband paused and said “I am a phone and you, you are my sim’, leaving wife very pleased; later husband relays story to friends saying that what wife didnt realise was that he had a 4 sim phone. Do you see it – envy, oneupmanship, romance, spousal relations, knowledge.
