Turn around by tuffix
Turn around

Um.. how about turning around?


This is not just about demonstrations but any kind of "explicit denunciation" (which I have a problem with anyway considering global issues..).

Reacting responsibly

My last work on this topic, for the time being. This is about me in my role as an artist.

Done very late at night so I'm not sure about it.

Dear Deviants,

where shall I start....

Those of you who are following me on facebook (Soufeina Tuffix Ha) will know that there is so much going on, lately. Besides working at a local company while preparing my master's thesis, this all happened the last months (art-related of course):

After my latest journal entry there were more interviews: "Hannoversche Allgemeine Zeitung", "Hamburger Abendblatt", "Neue Osnabrücker Zeitung" , "Spiegel Online", Turkish Newspaper "Zaman", two times in the "taz", "Islamische Zeitung" and "ZeitCampus".

I gave lectures at an event in Darmstadt, a school in Saarlouis and a church in Osnabrück.

Me and my work were shortly presented in the "Women in the World Summit" (typical guests of that NY event: Hillary Clinton, Angelina Jolie, Meryl Streep..waaah). Moreover I had my works exhibited in Berlin at the "Islamwoche". 

Next week my works will bei displayed in the Institute for Intercultural Islamic studies at the University of Osnabrück, where I will be giving a lecture, too.

It feels as if it's all too much fuss for just some comics and cartoons but again: Alhamdulillah, I thank God for all these chances I get lately!

And thank you again for your support, deviantart was a great stepping stone!

This religion gives you so much peace? A religion that teaches eternal burning (4:56), where people get nothing to drink except for the pus that emitts from their fire wounds (69:35-37) and thorns to eat (88:6). Yeah, how beautiful. A religion that insults homosexual love as an abomination (7:80). How tolerant.
But you NEVER address these issues. You only show your religion from the candy side! But it has a very very different side as well!! Your religion is just as bad as Christianity!

For Muslims the afterworld is a place that has totally different dimensions than this world we live in, it has different colors, odours etc. that's why it can't be properly described with the limited senses we have right now. And that's why these descriptions are clearly meaphoric and like any other kind of punishment (even the ones in our constitutions) serve as a deterrend. Yes, punishment is always harsh, that's the point of penalty. The ways it is described in the Quran is as figurative as the description of the paradise where there's honey and milk floating everywhere. But as I told you in the other comment: If you don't believe in a afterworld where you have to give account to the things done in this life - then why do you care about these things? It isn't a punishment for this world and no human being is allowed to punish someone in this way, so you don't have to fear anything. Let people believe in what they believe. When you don't believe in Santa Claus then you dont have to be offended by kids who believe you won't get candy because of mistakes you did in the past year ;)

And yes, this relgion gives me peace. I don't get why people feel peace when they go jogging neither, but the point is: I don't have to get it. Each to their own :)

You ask why I don't address these punishments? Why should I? Doesn't media do enough negative promotion? Long time ago I kind of promoted my religion with my artworks, yes (you called them candy coated pictures), because I felt that media showed my religion only from a very bad side. I wanted to show people why it meant so much to me. Then I got older and I realized that I wanted to talk about issues that affect the society I live in. I decided to contribute to a peaceful dialogue and coexistence with my art. And that's why I won't feel offended or upset by your comments how ever much you may try.

"these descriptions are clearly meaphoric"

Thats what Khorchide says and look how much Muslims hate him for that.

I do not believe in it, but how can I live in peaceful coexistence with people that do believe these things about me? You are not even allowed to pray for deceased non Muslims, because their soul is too dirty to make dua for them. This is a standard doctrine in Islam. I find it hurtful and it makes me angry.

Anyway, I do not want to write here anymore. Good bye.

u'll never know coz u've never been a Muslim before .. U see Islam as THEY want u to see it .. Islam is simply a PERFECT religion that makes u UNDERSTAND life .. jus because there r bad Muslims or ppl pretending to be Muslims, it doesnt mean that ISLAM is such as bad as they r .. please don't compare Islam to other Religions, we respect all religions and all ppl .. before judging Islam, read about it .. and speakin of homosexuals, they r ppl with mental problems which need to be fixed .. a man was born to be for a woman .. it's the nature .. u see a boy go kiss a lil girl, not a boy like him ! i feel sorry for homos, bcoz thy'v been thru raping by sick ppl .. but it should have been fixed not bcom their own nature .. i hope u respect my opnion, i don mean to insult any1 :)

I also think that "I found you , and now I can sleep." is a nice comment.   Tuffix, I enjoy so many of your drawings and thoughts.  

All good blessings on your way.
