18 Everyday Problems Only Muslims Will Understand

But is it halal?

1. You’ve prayed for something really unnecessary at one point in your life – and then immediately felt guilty afterwards.

2. You spend your bank holidays in bed, watching various series on Netflix.

3. Especially since everyone is busy hanging out with their families.

4. Which also means you probably don’t get presents during Christmas and Easter.

5. Oh, and when you’re on holiday, you mess up your sleeping pattern, which leaves you asking serious questions.

6. Speaking of praying, don’t pretend that you’ve never lost attention for a second and forgotten where you are.

7. You *love* the idea of brunch but the best things on the menu are never halal, which severely limits your options.

Breakfast menus would be so much more appealing if 99% of the menu didn't consist of bacon and/or pork. #MuslimProblems

8. Here’s another thing: You often get asked really stupid questions.

9. Really stupid questions.

12. You know someone with an unfortunate name.

13. Whenever a popular franchise comes to your town, the first thing you do is check its front door in case it’s halal. Just in case.

16. If you weren’t Muslim, you’d have zero idea what gelatine was. But as it turns out, it’s in all the sweets you want to eat but can’t.

#MuslimProblems *eating sweets* 'I swear they have gelatine!' Me:

17. One more thing: You can sometimes fall behind on new songs, or an entire pop culture phenomenon. What the hell is normcore, anyway?

Shots just came on this youtube playlist and I thought it was about gun violence. #MuslimProblems

18. And finally, you’re almost certainly familiar with people mispronouncing your name.
