My Tram Experience: My Reaction

By now im pretty much certain everyone who is involved with using any of the modern means of communication, from emails to Facebook to social media accounts. Must have seen the infamous “My tram experience” clip on YouTube. I came across it when someone posted a link on Facebook. I’m sure this video wont last a complete day as you tube will eventually take it down due to the gross use of racist slurs and words used in the clip.

Anyway, this post is really my thoughts and reactions this clip. To be honest what the woman said envelopes what many of the working class, low IQ intellect, white people are thinking. She said out loud, what others are thinking. The issue of racism existed since time began and unfortunately will continue till the end of time. What surprised me the most was the woman’s lack or should i say the complete ignorance of manners and responsibility which she showed. She had her son (i suppose, if she has not kidnapped him) on her lap. Now as a mother (I think she is) the only thing usually mothers want for their children is the best things in life. Teaching their kids good behaviour; how to act with others, how to live a well-mannered, good, morally upright, social life. They go to great lengths to teach them these issues and stop the their children at the first available instance if they hear any bad swear words or attitudes coming from their children. From parent to parent it varies, in terms of the punishment they give out for using or behaving in such a manner. Some ground their children from going out, where as others stop giving their kids pocket-money. Just so the children learn not to have a foul-mouthed attitude and learn to respect their elders and others.
The sad state of affairs is, nowadays the mothers/guardians are swearing, being foul-mouthed and being like children to be frank. If this is the state of the parents then who will teach the children manners and morals? and be a role model for them to follow? This clip just shows the moral decline in which we live in today. The loss of family life has left the whole social framework go into to disarray. Everything collapses if the mother is hell-bent on being ignorant on basic morals and manners every child should be brought up knowing. If swearing and the like is no longer seen as a destructive and alarming crime(s) then these type of people should not complain when their own children grow up doing the same evil acts and in turn do it to them; Showing no respect to them as parents, swearing, even physically harming them. The woman typifies the lack of responsible role models these low intellect, working class, white people have and as a consequence are suffering for it tremendously. This is why we see the like of the london riots happening and no one feeling or even thinking its wrong to steal or to harm a person, unnesseraily.
Islamically, the prophet (Saw) said as one gets more and more closer to the day of judgement, the social framework of thinking will disintegrate. (paraphrased) basically, you will begin to see more and more behaviour like this (on the clip) where acts and attitudes which would have been held with complete disgust in previous generations will in later generations who come, be seen as normal in the name of freedom of speech. Each generation which comes after the previous generation will be worser than its predecessor nearing the end days. (paraphrased), is also another hadith which i remember. subhanAllah many of the muslim families are now reaching these lowest or the low levels of life aswell unfortunately! where, no sence of responsibility, respect and morals is being shown.

Islam is in the spotlight now more than ever before and this has caused people to question the faith itself and none more so than the new-age modernists muslims, largely from the convert western countries who are hell-bent on reforming Islam and its traditional values. This blog is a small space in the vastness of the internet where the fight to preserve, uphold and dignify the traditional inherent human values, are proactively argued against the onslaught of modernist propaganda and hate. Covering topics from current affairs to life-enriching inspirations, though to the traditional teachings of the pious and the awliyah of the past and the present.
