Seattle, WA (1:30 P.M. PST)–Following a packed jum’ah prayer, several congregants informed the local media that 58 year-old Hasan Sha’ban, a recently divorced middle-manager at a local accounting firm, was seen ceaselessly swiping right during the entirety of the khutbah.
“I didn’t see him swipe left a single time,” said congregant and self-trained piety scholar Ayman R. Hamza. While it is unclear what he was doing, many have theories. “Maybe he was clearing out his email?” said Mahmoud Luqman, an engineer at Google, “our new Inbox app uses a right-swipe to clear out an email.”
Others, like, Fadi “Fad” Haban, President of Washington State’s SAE chapter had other thoughts: “Dude is crazy. That’s why there will never be a nonstop right-swiper in our frat. You gotta swipe left at least once an hour.”
