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.

Seher - I didnt remember myself, Nooj was the one who reminded me.
Nooj: i found it
u go to layout on blogger dashboard
then to edit on the blog posts thingy
then there will be options.
Hope that helps, and you can thank Nooj.

Zahera - will wonders never cease? you know whats mxit now :D I went for wedding, it was last saturday, the food was ok, the soji and haleem esp. The rest of wedding was kinda boring.

UJ - And isnt that the whole point of an invitation?
