Stories of My Friends Hearing Their Friends Talk About My Channel
“Jana, the funniest thing today
I was sitting with Yemeni friends who live in Yemen.
Bare in mind, the internet here is basically 512kps and takes 9 hours for a youtube video to load.
And they were like “Theres this really cool british/arab girl on youtube who says the coolest stuff”
Im like, really? Whom could this possibly be?..
And they start singing “Im a friendly arab and you’re watching me vloggging”
I just died right there.
You know you’ve made it when people in Yemen start watching.”
Hi,I found your videos today and have been watching them for hours. :) You talk a lot about your religion and how it affects your identity and i was just wondering if you have ever read the Qur'an and/or any intelligent criticism of religion (e.g. Christopher Hitchens)? I am an atheist but definitely not a hater and was wondering how well educated (for lack of a better term) you are about your faith?
Hello, thank you for your questions. First and foremost, I don’t ever want you to feel that you have to tip-toe around me when asking me questions about my faith, I am perfectly comfortable with that.
Secondly, I have read the whole quran quite a few times in arabic. I have also read some of it translated in english. Furthermore, when I feel that there’s something I’m not sure about I always make a point to research it both in the Quran and in Hadith, and I also attempt to measure the credibility of the hadith I find. Lastly, I make a point to question everything I am unsure of, and will speak to my friends and family about those points of uncertainty, discussions can last for hours, and I usually find them extremely helpful.
I’d also like to add that although I have never exactly sat down and read something by Christopher Hitchens, I am very familiar with similar point of views of these thinkers.
