There is an Islamic hotline.
I kid you not. It’s 1.877.ISLAM09. Call it…. I’ll wait.
See. I told you so.
Here’s how I found out. A family member is considering converting to Islam and we were chatting. The family member is telling me about the five pillars and what conversion entails and then suddenly drops “the guy on the hotline said…”
Errrrr, stop — guy on the hotline?????
No matter how the conversation attempted to progress, I could not get past the idea of a hotline for a religion.
When you type in “Jewish Hotline” into Google, here’s what comes up:
— Red Hot Jewish Sex Line
— Jewish Help Hotline Jewish Frum Staff
Feeling proud of my tribe right about now.
Back to the Islam hotline. I wonder who answers? An Imam? A regular Muslim individual? Are there women who answer or only men? The person from this particular call was male.
What about my end of the line? What would I ask?
What would you ask?
