  1. ^ Karl, you think that an admonishment against the niqab is ' a great crime against Muslim women ' when there are millions of Muslim women struggling with inheritance, divorce, custody, violence, discrimination, and dispossession issues? A true sign of the moral and ethical bankruptcy of this wretched ummah, discussing a silly garment that wouldn't have seen the light of day had the white man not dug up some oil in an otherwise barren land. Hope your tableeq mentors are instructing you in something more worthwhile.

  3. My question was why critical thinking , questioning , remaining skeptic and/or doubting are the enemy of Theism? Critical thinking doesn't belong anywhere near how religious education is conducted. People are Muslims because they are born into a Muslim family and are told by their parents and teachers that opting out means hell. That means burning for an eternity. With fires that are made of other people and stones. If there is a self-respecting portion of the brain that has any sort of rational questioning into the teaching at the time, it would pack up its little bag and go home. A real good test of thesim's ability to win the hearts and minds of people (like a political party ) is to take hell and eternal damnation out of the equation. That ain't going to happen. An alternative is to wait until people are grown-ups and then teach them a number of religions and let them choose. The hell and melting flesh business will have a more comical effect on many at this age if they've never heard it before. Like the above proposition, that ain't going to happen either. In the meantime, my friend Johnny B will keep scratching his head at why people just don't question Islam (or Christianity, Judaism, Buddism) and us believers will continue to whisper acuudubillah under our breaths (feeling hell-fire bellowing and singeing arm hairs), remembering childhood stories of eternal torture rituals (ribs cracking, eyeballs squeezed out of big nomad heads, and drinking hell mates' urine) Johnny B, unless you can make that stuff go away, you're messing with our indoctrination We're just trying to deal and here you are sticking your tongue at us and gloating for not hearing the Manchurian whispers.
  4. ^ Feeling persecuted, snookums? Somebody call the waaaaaaambulance!
  5. First order of business, she needs to return those 2 children to the woman from whom they were snatched. The birth mother should have her children back. Now for payback, this is what happens when you shack up with a low-down, dirty b@stard. What is she doing going to a sheikh and shoving religion into this matrimonial mess? If she really wanted a divorce, she would simply make his life hell and drop off the first couple of kids at the new hag's place. He would divorce her before her child-kidnap-condoning behind sat back on the sofa. Sharia can't fix this mess but a metal-covered Quran can be used to beat both of them on the head till they bleed. Edit: Oh shidh, C&H, I didn't realize she was a relative May the forces be with her. About the imams, that's what some of them do, peddle rotten goods to unsuspecting people.

Nothing makes a vacation more memorable than a pool full of men and nashids at night. lol. Today's large developers and investors are absolute fools to ignore the muslim/halal demographic in marketing goods and services. I think I would pass on a chance to get beauty treatments and swim with a bunch of catty, gossipy women and their brats. And no eye candy too, pfffttt :rolleyes:
  7. ^ Che, agreed. The discussion seems to be based somewhat, at least initially, on the conduct of Al Shabaab youngsters with an elderly sheikh. No doubt more political than religious.
  8. Isn't religion brought down to the layperson and isn't he or she the one to be condemned to hellfire for not doing this or that? Then offering interpretations is the least that they can do. And appealing to authority is a logical fallacy Naxar, don't forget the magoos.
  9. ^ That's what winter does to people. Four months of darkness and here we are, ripping each other's cyber throats This sounds like an interesting documentary though I've been disappointed lately with BBC programming.
  10. ^ Speaking of movies, have you seen the Book of Eli? I'm looking for an excuse to see it. **a wave and a smooch right back at Johnny B** Khayr, being part of a 'polygamous family' has all the appeal of travelling with Jim Jones to Guyana and asking for a cold cup of juice. Rephrase your tired appeal and maybe you will have better luck.
  11. Those are pretty interesting!
  12. El Generale, what's there not to get? One man plus 2 or 3 or 4 women. Marvin Gaye in the background. Let's Get It On...... Now if you throw another dude in the mix, then you have a haraam situation. Comprende?
  13. ^ Zafir! long time no read Khayr, so you want a woman to go from shame and depression to an orgy? That's a religious man for you right there.
  14. Sherban, look what your student ID did to my screen :mad: And nobody is born in 1988 :rolleyes: Just kidding. I don't even know why they kept this inconsequential woman for all these months. They could have hijacked at least 5 ships or kidnapped 10 people. Somebody needs to brush up on their Six Sigma methodologies.
  15. Che, the Hindus are on to something with this resurrection business. Makes death less daunting, horrific. Didn't know that about jellyfish, lucky buggers :mad:
