Muslim Points

Dunkin DrinksI was in Dunkin today and oversaw a Muslim woman’s smart phone text. She wrote to her friend,” S/O to these drinks because they get me 50 rewards points!” I’d guess S/O means shout out? Anyway, I can’t wrap my head around how this person’s beliefs align with Dunkin reward points.

Here is the Muslim law – Wearing of the hijab was enforced by the Taliban regime in Afghanistan. The Taliban’s Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan required women to cover not only their head but their face as well, because “the face of a woman is a source of corruption” for men not related to them.

The Koran hasn’t been updated to include these sins. It feels fake.
