John & Mary - Wedding Invitation

This is a wedding invitation we received recently. I am still awestruck by its stupidity. The names and details have been changed to protect the dumb, but the rest of it is word for word.

John: Mary, lets fulfill the Sunnat of our Rasoolalah (SAW) and get married.

Mary: Alhamdo- Lilah - Allah has bestowed his blessing upon us. When will this auspicious day be?

John: On Friday, 9th January 2009 at the Piet Retief Hall.

Mary: What time will the Nikah take place?

John: After Asr, 17h45 at the Piet Retief Mosque.

Mary: What time will I meet my guests at the hall?

John: At 17h00.

Mary: What about supper?

John: Supper will be served at 18h30.

Mary: Jazakallah, may Allah bless us on this precious day.

John: Insha Allah Ameen.

Till next time in Waseem world.
