An Arab Muslim enters a taxi in New York City. Once he is seated he asks the cab driver to turn off the radio because he must not hear music, as decreed by his religion. He explains that in the time of the prophet there was no music, especially Western music (which is music of the infidels). And there certainly was no radio. The cab driver politely switches off the radio, stops the cab and opens the back door. The Muslim asks him: "What are you doing, man?" The cabby answers: "In the time of the prophet there were no taxis. So get out and wait for a camel."
