Did you ever watch a soap on television, wondering how everything would have worked out if the characters were a little bit different. Like what if Homer Simpson were a sports freak or the Fresh Prince were white? We always wondered what would happen if Ross, Monica, Chandler, Phoebe, Joey and Rachel were Mohamed, Fatima, Rachid, Loubna, Bilal and Zahra. May we present to you: 23 things that would happen if all Friends characters were Muslims.
1. Monica and Chandler would have gotten married a lot sooner.
2. They would have met at the local mosque instead of a bar.
3. Joey would share his food.
4. Staring at Ugly Naked Guy? HARAM!
5. Phoebe would be a great nasheed singer.
6. Three divorces for Ross? How about three wives?
7. There’s no such thing as “on a break”.
8. Rachel would be a hijabi fashion vlogger.
9. Monica would be the most strict Muslim EVER.
10. Joey would be the type of Muslim that eats in secret during Ramadan.
11. Gunther would be the same guy: the one that stares at you every day, hoping you’ll marry him.
12. Monica would be living with Ross and he would be with her on every ‘date’ as her mahram.
13. Ross and Monica would be the Haram Police, judging everything and everyone.
14. Ross would have forgiven the person at work who ate his sandwich.
15. Phoebe would still live on the streets, because she’d be giving all her money as zakaat to the poor.
16. No more “How you doing?”, Joey would be flirting with “Ma sha Allah, sister”.
17. Chandler wouldn’t want a moustache like Richard, he’d want a beard.
18. Trips to London and Barbados? Not after season 7 (2001).
19. They would celebrate Eid at Monica’s place.
20. Ross and Monica’s parents wouldn’t be called Jack and Judy, but hajj and hajja Geller.
21. They wouldn’t have killed Mr. Heckles, neighbours mean everything to Muslims.
22. Phoebe would be into some sick black magic stuff
23. But no matter what, we bet they’d still be Friends!
And that’s exactly why we love them!
