True but Mira is supposed to be ~~~super devout~~~ that's why she's wearing niqab. Devout ones will be very strict about their dietary restrictions, hence living in Japan would be a nightmare, food wise. That's why I think she's spouting nonsense about Japan being better to practice her religion vs. Saudi is really really stupid. Her excuses don't make sense. I think she's not keen of idea that they'll close stores and whatnot during prayer times in Saudi, trapping the customers within.
Japan is literally one of the least easy place to practice Islam for one simple reason: the food. We're not supposed to eat pork or any consumable product made from pigs. While practicing-but-not-devout like me won't eat obvious pork product like ham katsu, the more devout ones will scrutinize the ingredients list of a snack to determine if it's halal or not (spoiler alert: most of them are not halal friendly) Alcohol is also an issue, considering soy sauce is a fermented product and do contain some % of alcohol in it. Eating out is a nightmare. Some travel agencies in my country have designated halal tour to accommodate those needs (only go to halal restaurants etc, which is very very very limited in Japan) Don't forget the halal slaughter thing. It's going to be borderline impossible to find halal beef or chicken products in the supermarket even if she cooks her own meals. Most of my Muslims friends who lives in Japan only consume vegetable and seafood due to those issues and barely eat out. They won't even touch Kit Kat bars because it might contain pork derivatives product.
In Arabic they have some signs on top of the script to indicate how it sounds. Be it 'a' 'i' or 'u'. They have some rules about if you can ignore the sound indicator if it's by the end of the word etc. Allahu Akbar is written and pronounced as Allahu Akbar. It's basic knowledge if you want to read the Quran properly. Also considering Allahu Akbar is Takbir and us Muslims say it whenever we start every sequence of our daily prayers, that's a dumb mistake to do. We have to do our prayers in Arabic, after all. Considering Mira is such a "devout Muslim" surely she prays at least 5 times a day and read the Quran so she should know about this. Nah, I'm pretty sure she never prays nor read the Quran because she's a phony and only getting her misguided information about Islam from the internet instead of properly studying about it. I bet I can point to the Arabic words that says "Muhammad" and she won't be able to read it.
If her husbando really is a Saudi national, then her only concern should be just the airline tickets, no? I assume her husbando's family has a house there so lodgings should not be an issue. Food and everything else are pretty darn cheap unlike Dubai. People from my country just need to pay around USD 1000 for a 10 days trip. That's for round trip tickets, visa, vaccination, transportation from site to site, 3 stars local hotels, meals 3 times a day, and a guide. I mean, if she can afford Louis Vuitton perfume, surely she can afford USD 1000 for a vacation, no? Wait, I forgot the Vuitton perfume is fake.
Yeah just last week the KSA declared new guidelines allowing women to rent hotel rooms without a male guardian's presence, and foreign men and women to share a room without proof of marriage. Plus female tourist no longer required to wear abayas, just need to cover your shoulders and knees in public. But honestly, unless you're going there for religious pilgrimage I don't see why she wants to visit KSA. I was there for 10 days going from Medina to Mecca and Jeddah. And it was bearable because I went during low season and stayed in luxury hotels. Literally nothing to see. (I guess you could go to Taif during their rose season and maybe Riyadh is more lively but otherwise....meh)
I helped a local actor to get his verification badge on Instagram. He has around 40k followers. I requested through the option available on the Instagram app and he just need to upload his ID (he used his passport in this case). That's it. Nothing else. And a few days later, suddenly he got his verification badge without any warning nor confirmation. Just how delusional Whylow can be?
Us Muslims believe that to be able to go to Hajj you have to be called upon by God Himself. My friend who lives in KSA for years still unable to perform Hajj because there's always something preventing him to do that it actually frustrates him. I would like to think my God refused to have Mira's phony ass anywhere near His house, like some sort of divine intervention.
Nah, I think she just doesn't have the money for it. The cheapest rate for Hajj in my country is USD2500. That's for a 40 days stays. Communal lodgings (as in you'll share a bare minimum dormitory with multiple people in 1 room), food, and transports from site to site. But that price is with my government footing some of the bills for the pilgrims. And like I said, each country has a very limited quota for Hajj visa. In my country you could apply for Hajj visa now and probably gets to go to Hajj 10-15 years later due to the quota. The KSA government gives extra quota but you have to pay at least USD9500 and up to USD26000/person (this way you can apply and then go in the same year instead of waiting for a decade) I'm assuming the Canadian government doesn't foot some of the bills like my government so Mira has to pay the full price. That's gonna cost her at least CAD10000 for the economical package.
I haven't lurked on this thread for so long and she seems getting weirder everyday. Anyway, just want to point out her lies about the Hajj thing although is old news. So, I'm not sure if women foreigners can't enter KSA without mahram because I was there for umrah trip and that does require a mahram. Basically for Hajj visa it requires the same thing BUT your Hajj travel agent will provide you with fake mahram a.k.a someone of the opposite sex within your Hajj group. I went with my brothers so that was not an issue but one of my brothers got assigned as the fake mahram for a girl in our umrah group for visa purpose only. So her ranting about not being able to go to Hajj because of mahram thing was a lie. Each country has very limited Hajj quota every year so Mira has to apply for her Hajj visa according to her passport, which is from Canada. Also it's almost impossible to go to Hajj without the help of travel agent simply due to lodgings and transport considering you won't be staying in one place. (unless she's planning to sleep on the street and walk through the dessert then IDK, even the prophet used camels/horses, the distance is no joke) Hotels are fully booked far in advance before Hajj season even starts. Not to the mention the mandatory vaccination you'll need before you can even apply for the visa. Oh, someone mentioned if perfume is haram but it's not. You can find a lot of perfume stores just a few steps from Masjidil Haram (the mosque where Kaaba is located). They even offered if you want your attar (a very concentrated version of perfume) to be diluted with alcohol or not. 😂😂😂😂
