    that's true

    it is the way those countries are portrayed, similar to countries like Bangladesh where there are certain parts of it that are better off than others

    Even then, one should challenge what is being shown

    The usual white man saving the poor coloured people and teaching them what is right and wrong.

    We all know there is irony in that because they're the ones that ruined those rich countries in the past, now they complain about immigrants

          I don't think the sensitivity is really necessary. It's not like we're white and you're black. Muslims poke fun at other Muslims jokingly at times. It might not be "right", but it's extremely common between Bengalis and "Pakis", Iranians and Afghans, Saudis and Sudanese, etc.

          I would understand if we were white Americans/Europeans and you were a black Bantu Africa, but that isn't the case.

          Just my opinion though.

            ^ I disagree. It doesn't matter if he is white/black/asian..or something else..If he had laughed at them having to "retrieve water from wells", then that's just distasteful and arrogant..

              Well he obviously didn't mean it like that. But anyways, Khayr InshaAllah.

              I hope to visit Somalia one day. The Muslims I've came across from there have always amazed me, my favourite Qari is Somali, and they are one of the oldest Muslim nations.

But can you blame me? That's the perception we have of Africa here. You have to do your own independent research to truly understand what's going on.

                            It seems to be the perception of a couple of people, but remember so many people have come to Somaliland of diff cultures so its not really anyone's fault if someone is ignorant of what others have known for years.

                            And Africa is not one country its loads of diff countries. I think people wish to stay ignorant then.
                            Abu Malik at-Ash'ari reported:

                            The Messenger of Allah (ﷺ) said: Cleanliness is half of faith

                            and al-Hamdu Lillah (all praise and gratitude is for Allah alone) fills the scale, and Subhan Allah (Glory be to Allah)

                            and al-Hamdu Lillah fill up what is between the heavens and the earth, and prayer is a light,

                            and charity is proof (of one's faith)

                            and endurance is a brightness and the Holy Qur'an is a proof on your behalf or against you.

                            All men go out early in the morning and sell themselves, thereby setting themselves free or destroying themselves.

                              They don't teach us about Somalia in school nor do we hear anything positive about Africa in the mainstream media. We know of places like Egypt and Morocco because they're generally popular and Muslims look into these places for studying Arabic.

                              And it's not really about staying ignorant either. It's kind of like useless knowledge if it isn't relevant to your life. Who cares if Somalia runs off wells or has a developed infrastructure? I might care on some level because I'm a Muslim, but why would a Kaafir care? Won't make any difference in his life.

                              It's your job to spread awareness if you think it means something to you.

                              Wa Allahu A'lam

                                LailaTheMuslim Why don't you open a thread and teach us about the non-Arab African Muslim countries? I'm sure Muslims would take interest in learning about them if the sources were convenient.
