An expression of extreme anger appeared on the face of Lebanese singer Haifa Wahbi when she was suddenly faced with an embarrassing and personal question by one of the journalists upon her arrival at Cairo Airport. A journalist had asked her if she fasts during the holy month of Ramadan.
Haifa became angry and demanded the photographers at the airport to stop taking filming and then faced the journalist with the signs of anger all over her face and told him that she is a Muslim woman and has since she was a child always fasted during the holy month, pharmacy as well as during other times during the year.
She added that during the month of Ramadan she follows all the teaching of Islam and is becomes very connected with God. The journalist on his turn apologized to the singer for his inappropriate question and began asking her general questions.
Haifa held two concerts in Cairo and will hold a third on the first day of the Muslim holiday Eid El Fitr, and after which she will return to Lebanon to spend the rest of the holidays with her family. [source]
Is it just me or was the question in fact quite inappropriate? And this is regardless of who she is and what she does for a living.
Naseem I’d skip your question, and ask whether her answer was ‘Ironic’ instead. Ramadan Bubbles.
It is an appropriate and silly question. Man these tabloid people..
LOOL! Indeed it is very inappropriate …WIt’s no one’s business…
but as for me, I seriously have a hard time comprehending how one can:
fast yet drink
fast yet not pray
fast and pray yet engage in pre-marital sex
fast and pray yet engage in constant, and I mean constant, gossip
Roba I believe you meant inappropriate!
Arabs have a tendency of asking stupid personal questions. This journalist is no different. Nice picture btw 🙂
What does it matter to anyone if she fasts or not? such a stupid question, I can’t blame her for getting mad.
People will just never get it. I think it’s her own personal life, and she’s free to do whatever she wants.
She needs not to say that she fasts, so Iman, I wouldn’t be judging people by their appearance.
I think we’re a society that loves labeling and loves to point fingers, yet we tend to forget what we do, and we might even do the same, only thing is that we don;t have the guts to display it to the public.
yeah i guess he shouldnt ask her, its a stupid Question i believe.
and btw nice pic 😛
It is a very inappropriate question … people are so nosy and this one is just rude 🙂
Kol 3am w inta b kheir Naseem .. Happy Eid
wa inti be5eir khalidah, thanks 🙂
I think it was a rude and tasteless question because fasting is a personal matter. However, Haifa is in the public eye, and just like they ask her about everything from her haircut to her marriages, she should not be surprised that they asked her about fasting.
How much longer until a journalist asks her if she is a virgin? LOL
I’d hit it!
IÃ¢??d hit it!
I wonder if she is cool with mutah.
I won’t be surprised if she wears a veil or even a Niqab at some point if the Egyptian Hijab Mafia gets to her.
Artists are usually emotional people.
I just can’t believe she’s getting famous and all this attention, and all she got is her body! Her voice sucks big time.
Whatever happened to Intellects of the Arab speaking countries?Like in other countries you have Haifa indeed, but on the other hand you got scholars,artists,writers,and so on.
Happy Eid people
