    As a muslim who's felt confusion about this, it's nice to see this as a conversation in the making. I don't know if I agree with it but I do know that only Allah judges. It's not my place or any islamic institution's place to force a specific muslim to behave in their personal vision. Countless people came to the prophet (SAAW) discussing their sins and the companions have been described as feeling discomfort, but the Prophet (SAAW) never encouraged hate or ridicule of even the worst of people. I can't argue that problematic contextual interpretation has been a thorn in Islam's side, but just because something is interpreted in a certain way that you disagree with, it doesn't make it wrong. Maybe the Quran definitively was meant to read that Homosexuality is a sin. No one alive today is the absolute authority so all we can do is try to be respectful to the people who take a different path to ours because no one should be directing your trek except you.

    Talk as much as you want, use big words and vainly deliver them albeit dramatically. Remember, you do speak for yourself and only yourself (or next of kin)! You can slow talk, get some slow claps...but what you're talking about is BS. Justify, misinterpret, mislead, your choice! But, you DO NOT have a clue of what you're talking about! Thanks but no thanks! Bye.

    It's decidedly chilling the way these mohammedans squeeze their religious quotes into the conversation as if they have any meaning to anyone outside of their religion. I always make a point of replying with "whatever" when they play that trick on me.

  38. Rags Toriches

    Rags Toriches28 hari yang lalu

    It's a rotten ideology. It doesn't belong outside the desert where it came from and should go back there. It demands respect where it hasn't earned any and threatens everyone that sees it for what it is. Let's hope it rots away as more and more people walk away from it. It has nothing of any value to offer the west.

  39. Dreadedina Jk

    I am a Muslim. They're not pushing anyone aside, you're just bothered by them for some reason. Look for the reason within yourself. They certainly have relevance in here. In any case, they are people like everyone else. The fact that they are a Muslim if they are a practicing Muslim is an easy way to describe the type of a person they are.

  40. Rags Toriches

    Rags Toriches28 hari yang lalu

    More than ten years ago you and I probably heard or used the word muslim once every five years if that. Suddenly, they are taking up all the oxygen in the room and pushing everyone else to the side. I have zero interest in them but somehow they have forced their way into every conversation as if they have any relevance. islam is a deceitful religion followed by deceitful people. It should be judged by how it treats people that have zero interest in it and people who decided they don't won't to belong to it any more. It is unequivocal about the punishments they should receive. I would ban it on that basis alone.

  41. Dreadedina Jk

    Dreadedina Jk28 hari yang lalu

    They are relevant to the topic and indeed have great meaning to those many many Muslims in the conversation. They also have a meaning - if a lacking one - to many other people who have bothered to read about the topic before they talk about it.

    @Da Blink because this life is a test you are here for making your God happy and honestly i believe and have experienced what ever Islam says usually ended up true..but coming back to you saying why God did this the answer is simple this World wasnt a bed of roses it was designed to test your faith obviously your faith wasnt going to be tested if there weren't any "problems" may it be "natural". Some cant reproduce thats also a natural problem but God (Allah) said that i will test your faith with Money, Children and With Honour so this so called "natural problem" is also test from Allah now how you respond to it is your choice your results will be according to the choice you make :)

    First of all, I mean no offense by what I'm about to say. In my western Civ class we recently spoke about ancient religions, the most interesting of them being Zoroastrianism. The book we have states that Zoroastrianism would come to influence both Christianity and Islam at least in some regards. When the speaker states that Islam isn't a monolith, I was curious because Zoroastrianism was also practiced in a similar individual level. To my brothers and sisters who practice Islam, I'm merely curious about what you all think and what other similarities y'all may have noticed? Again this isn't a challenge or denunciation of the Islamic faith at all, nothing more than just the curious thoughts of a History major who likes to hear the well educated opinions of others.

    Woah, that's an interesting thought! ^^ I always thought that only three Ibrahimic religions that are Islam, Christianity, and Judaism have the same route. 🤔

  69. Niko Pawlowic

    Niko PawlowicBulan Yang lalu

    @Mohammed Al Anati that notion you say about Judaism and Christianity being corrupt, is inaccurate, because there is historical evidence to the contrary and we have in our possesion 5500 original greek manuscripts of the new testatment, ancient hebrew scrolls, personal accounts, archaelogical finds AND historical and scientific evidence that refutes EVERY SINGLE claim that has been proposed by Muslim scholars! I'm sorry Mohammed Al Anati, but me as a Catholic who has rediscovered his faith will not sit Idly by as the name of Yehovah, of which our Almighty and True Father is INCREDIBLY jealous of, be bastardized, confused for, or equated to the name of a god who was worshipped as a moon god by pagans in the city of mecca by a false prophet!

  70. Mohammed Al Anati

    Mohammed Al AnatiBulan Yang lalu

    Niko Pawlowic Islam was not influenced by other religions. Islam influenced both Christianity and Judaism. Islam was the first religion when Allah send Adam and Eve to Earth. After many generations it was mostly forgotten. Prophets were sent to all ancient civilizations. The second last prophet was Prophet Issa (peace be upon him), also known in English as Jesus. He preached Islam and many aspects of early Christianity were similar to Islam. Over time, the Bible and his teachings were corrupted and changed.
