ashek Ittaqullah; a Turkish/Arabic phrase that doesn’t mean;
“I shake-itwith-tequila!!!, like a drunken prostitute, it means……
Ashek!‘be bright’ (be smart, not a dumb, light, 'air-head', bangpire, bar fliar)
Ittaqullah!‘fear God’, embrace the spirit of love and be faithful (not the spirit of slamming back shots of tequila, while leading a reckless sex life
The husband tries to explain to the wife the real meaning of Ashek-Ittaqullah.......
Husband: " Sweetheart Im sorry but youve been a flight attendant now for almost 10 years, you're gone flying around the world most of the time, so i think its about time you quit and come home to your husband and 3 kids, we miss you and need you
Wife; How dare you request such a thing from me!!? You were the one who left me 5 times every week, and before you left the house every morning you would tell me you were going to 'shake it-with tequila, drinking with girls all day.... ive just been doing the same thing you have but just around the world, with men!
Husband: Baby!! First of all, I was going to the office, to work, you know provide for the family as we do? And, when I said, "Ashek Ittaqulah" it was to remind you to, be smart, fear God, love your husband and kids, and be faithful!! You are a Muslim you know.
Wife; Oops, my bad, I guess, but your timing is not so good bb, ive just been hired by the new airline, Girludah-Air and was already personally promoted to the Mile-High, 'Tight Afflendant' club, by Captain Spitt himself, in his, super cool, Bad Spitt cock-Pitt, which means I get to wear a sexier, tighter fitting, uniform and visit more exotic countries etc, and i cant just quit like that, Id have to first break up with all my "Foreign friends, with benefits" if you know what i mean, (they've earned a lot of miles with me), I couldnt do that to them, you know im a nice girl!!
Husband; I think its time for a divorce
Wife; What did I do this time honey!!?? You know i cant cook!!? ....
the collocation Turkish Arabic, 'ashek'(light) and ittaqullah(fear God)
