Normally when a person passes, a period of respect and mourning follows. However, this is not the case for Muslims when a kafir (infidel) dies. Islam forbids its followers from wishing an infidel to rest in peace. 25-year-old Yemeni-born singer-songwriter Balqees Ahmed Fathi, a devout Muslimah who now lives in the UAE, couldn’t leave the dead to a peaceful rest.
When actor/comedian and noted supporter of Israel Robin Williams committed suicide, Fathi took to Twitter to voice her completely respectful, moderate, and logical thoughts. “I woke up this morning to a ginormous display of emotion for the news of Hollywood actor Robin Williams’ death of depression. Frankly, I did not sympathize with him, and thanked god for the blessing of Islam.” You didn’t sympathize? So you’re telling me you’ve never gone through a long period of feeling significantly under the weather? Even if that were the case, why would you say such a cold thing about a legend’s untimely demise?
It all comes back to Fathi’s religion, which is the next thing she referenced. She thanked Allah for the “blessing” of Islam (a woman calling Islam a blessing, LOL), implying that Islam would cause a person to take different actions than Williams. Funny story: Muslims around the world commit suicide all the time, albeit in far more fiery ways than Williams.
Fathi wasn’t done making an ass of herself. She also Tweeted, “I found this video of him… he mocks the Qur’an in front of millions for the sake of his Zionist views. I know I am right. I dedicate this to his fans.” That video is one of many reasons Williams’ amazing legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of generations to come. Fathi, on the other hand, will rightly fade into obscurity.
