Today, my "friends" pulled an elaborate prank on me. First, they changed my ringtone to a recording of someone saying "Allahu Akbar" on repeat. Then, they called me as we had a moment of silence in honor of the 9/11 victims. FML

Maybe it's just me, but I assumed this moment of silence took place at his school, probably at the beginning or end of the day, since it sounds to me like this kid and his "friends" are high school age, and most schools do a moment of silence sometime during the day on 9/11. So I doubt he could have predicted when this would be, and that his phone would go off during it with that dumb ass ring tone.

God, it has been 14 years already... maybe OPs "friends" are about this old, and therefore do not share the same comotion of those who could see and get shocked by the events. We need peace and respect. Among all people, muslims included - be surge to tell your "friends"

15, I agree with your comment but please be a bit more sensitive with your wording. "Allahu Akbar" literally just translates to "God is the greatest" and is an essential part of Muslim prayer, while his friends were incredibly disrespectful to set it as his ringtone I wouldn't go so far as to call it "dumb ass."

81 i doubt 15 ment that the saying Allah Akbar is a dumb ass phrase. He was clearly talking about the ring tone its self. I'd say slow down and think about what was said, but it seems getting offened over some minor thing is a very popular past time these days.

Yep, exactly. Allah Akbar literally means "God is great"

Don't get why people make a mockery out of a whole religion due to a few stray twats.

This was downright disrespectful, Especially considering the timing. Op, you need better friends

That's the thing though, it's not clever. All it did was insult and disrespect the thousands of people that died in the Twin towers, as well as all of the first responders since.
