Khaled Ahmed Hmoud Al-Amro, Dr Mohd Nazri Latiff Azmi, Ali Mahmoud Ali Alshwayyat

The main purpose of this study is to examine comedy and irony in Wajahat Ali's play The Domestic Crusaders. This play is classified as a literary piece of art. In his comical play, Ali sought to combine significant concerns with comedy. It tells the story of a Pakistani family who immigrated to the United States of America, where the family faced severe discrimination from the Americans, specifically after the September 11 attacks in New York. The family composes from grandfather, parents and children. Parents and grandparents were representing the old generation and still stick to old values and traditions, while the children are Americans and live like Americans. However, they still valued Islamic beliefs. The entire picture consists of monologs and family dialogs that discuss bigotry against Muslims in a quite smartly and funnily way. Wajahat Ali succeeded in his way of presenting his funny play in which he contend Islam and asked the American people to accept others in an satisfactory way that made them laugh.
