    Greetings Once again! Assalamualaikum, Hi, Its is I..The Cool-Dude

    So Ive heard about Lupes success on Mt.Kilomanjaro..Congradulations but I just wanted to clear some things out on Lupe Fiasco's new hot track Im Beaming which has got me kind of concerenced because of the following..

    In his track he states that 'I try to follow this, What Muhammed Do..'

    What do you try to follow? and Who are you referring to as Muhammed? I hope its not the Prophet Muhammed (Peace.Be.Upon.Him)

    For those who dont know Prophet Muhammed (Peace.Be.Upon.Him) was a great and noble person to mankind.

Greetings Once again! Assalamualaikum, Hi, Its is I..The Cool-Dude

So Ive heard about Lupes success on Mt.Kilomanjaro..Congradulations but I just wanted to clear some things out on Lupe Fiasco's new hot track Im Beaming which has got me kind of concerenced because of the following..

In his track he states that 'I try to follow this, What Muhammed Do..'

What do you try to follow? and Who are you referring to as Muhammed? I hope its not the Prophet Muhammed (Peace.Be.Upon.Him)

For those who dont know Prophet Muhammed (Peace.Be.Upon.Him) was a great and noble person to mankind. He was our beloved prophet and was the last Messenger of Allah. Its because of him Islam has rised and the Message of Allah (God) has spread all over the four corners of the world. He had taken sacrafice for us people to spread the Greatness of Allah, to show us the path, to guide humanity which would lead us to success, in other words he had showed us the 'Deen' (word of Allah -God-) by spreading not only the 'Glorious Quran' but a 'statement' which is called the 'Kalimah'..LAA-E-LAAHA ILLALLAH..translating in 'Theres is no God, but Allah' There is none worthy of worship.

SO...'I try to follow this, What Muhammed Do..

What im trying to figure out is in what way is Lupe interpretating this, as it can be heard IN MANY DIFFERENT WAYS..which some are.

I try to follow this: You trying to follow the Deen? What Muhammed do: What Muhammed (Peace.Be.Upon.Him) did was spread the word of Allah.

What do you mean when saying 'I try to follow this'? and 'What Muhammed do'?

I dont know man...i dont know if anybody else caught this but this certainly got my attention...i just dont know how he is reffering it...there many different ways it can be understood..alllls i know is...

You try to follow this, but i will not follow you...only footsteps of prophets, Peace be Upon Them Too....lolll

P.S. Ustughfirrullah..if i have said anything to wrong please forgive me ( To Lupe ).. Im not great as person and im not trying to go against lupe or trying to sabatoge him or something...Im not trying to Prove a point...im trying to point and prove..lol noo i just trying to figure out what hes trying to say...and 'LAA-E-LAAHA ILLALLAH MUHAMMED-DUR-RASULULLAH'-There is no God, But Allah. Prophet Muhammed (Pace.Be.Upon.Him) was his last messenger.

Soo loong people...Cool-Dude signing out...Assalamualaikum...Bye

Its honestly a shame that this dude is criticizing lupe on this... Lupe Fiasco says "I try to follow this, what Muhammad do". He means that although its difficult to always be a perfect Muslim (hence he said I try). He will struggle to try to follow the example of Muhammad (Peace be upon him) For all you non-muslims, the life of prophet Muhammad is the example for Muslims, whenever they have an issue to answer in life. He was our example just as for every group of humans God has sent theirs. The Jew with Moses, The Christians with Jesus. So I ditto what lupe said "I try to follow this.. what Muhammad do"

@ExposingTheWicked I've been following this site for awhile now, and I always see you acting SO negatively. Like if you dislike Lupe and all he is doing then you don't have to be on this site... Or is your purpose to expose the wicked like your name says to just say he is illuminati beware that is illuminati beware Why don't you spread the deen instead of putting fear in other brothers and sisters hearts. I see you quoting things from the Q'uran from time to time .. but that is just to back your illuminati points up. Also I sense you look down at a lot of people on this site, remember we are all equal and that it self is a sin, on top of this you stay judging Lupe for any wrong he does... ok he is a Muslim he can't be perfect he will sin like me and you .. Also Music is haram anyway so you listening to Lowkey is still sinning ... So stop judging him leave that to Allah. I know I said it already, but spread the deen instead of posting videos of illuminati .. as if people read the Q'uran they will know already to be aware of many of these things. I am not a perfect muslim, I am not the wisest I am just looking about a brother I am concerned about. One that judges other and does not look at his own sins ... (The imam is not perfect he may no more then me but he also sins) I am not doing this in anger but Ishallah you will realise your wrongs and change If I have said anything that offended you I'm sorry, and If I have said anything incorrect forgive me. P.S I am still a Lupe fan ... may Allah give us the strength to give us music as a whole till then #Lasers :)

''it's not haram to be young'' SMH

ok, lmao @element of chai OK? where the hack is this reaction coming from seriously? 'aradi its not haram to have a lot of heart and to be young. ' 'to have a lot of heart ' WHAT? 'to be young' are you one of em perpeutal childhooders? just a reminder Wasalu = born 1981 wich makes him 29... soon 30 Years OLD.... 30 yo is NOT young. unless you live in a fantasy world 'it's not haram to be young' what does this even indicate? is being 'young' being diffrent? :S 'many people today act naive and in haste so its whatever. the norm at least not all ' what? islamic rules are universal and timelss (i.e they are there to be followed regardless in what era your live)

honestly i think lupe is just stating he wants to be a good muslim and nothing else. aradi its not haram to have a lot of heart and to be young. All hes saying is he has a lot of, i think the word is energy? and still wise compared to many people today. not cocky. many people today act naive and in haste so its whatever. the norm at least not all

Salam Alaykum. It's the lines following it that worry me if anything. "It's such an old soul, inside a sonic you So I'm ferrari'd up, and I'm conscious too I don't prophecise, I promise you." I sense a lot of pride and some ignorance. (Not attacking Lupe, but the truth is the truth).

He didn't say anything wrong. He's referring to the Sunna way of living according to Muslims. The Sunna refers to following the things that the prophet did although they may not be mandatory in the Koran. That's why some people pray extra with each of the 5 prayers, because The Prophet used to. He's not saying he's trying to bring about a religious change like a prophet can.

TheTruth's picture

What are you talking about? Lupe's saying hes trying to follow the ways of Muhammad, just like Christians follow the ways of Jesus. That line is pretty simple i cant see how u can take that in any other way.
