  3. Al Shabab Attack On University

    This does seem a little 'off topic' Regarding so called 'Muslim' activities. I don't see that oil or any thing related to it has anything to do with mass murder of University students - civilians and innocents! Also btw http://aje.io/fu8c
  4. Child And Women's Right ?

    The problem is, I think, that Russia supports Assad and no one want to mess with Russia. Wahid
  5. The Islamic State

  6. The Islamic State

  7. The Islamic State

    Yes, but it's easy to turn killing into statistics isn't it? I fear hearing of the murder of innocent Christians who for centuries have lived peacefully alongside their Muslim brothers and sisters, in Syria and elsewhere. Until ISIL decide they are to be used as blackmail items and are to be treated as innocent pawns and are butchered in order to further their aims.
  8. The Islamic State

  9. The Islamic State

    I wonder if there is a connection between these two events? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-middle-east-31601451 Latest Headlines I fear the worst. Wahid
  10. Seen Any Muslim Tv Series And Dramas?

    Hello all. There was (is?) a programme called 'Citizen Khan' on in the UK on the mainstream channels but I've never seen it myself. Wahid

    So I'll try again: Now it's working! "I think that, ideally, one would hope for a 'meeting of minds'. Mutual understanding is the best method of communication by far , given the right spirit. But one of the issues, I think, relating to Muslims and non-Muslims is that a gulf of misunderstanding exists due to a lack of mutual culteral education.This is possibly the most important issue facing the world during these difficult times I beleve. For example, many Muslims probably have very little comprehension of what is generally called: 'The Enlightment' of the latter part of the 20th century in Europe and beginning hundreds of years earlier, and so on. Such philosophical and ideological ideas being discussed in a depth not seen since the days of Ancient Greece etc. Voltaire, Keirkegarde, John Locke J.P. Sarte etc etc. The converse - rather unfortunately, in my view, is the lack of general discussion of post Muhammadan Arab and Persian thought etc, which is not allowed on this Forum, as I understand it. Such thought systems that Ibn-el-Arabi and Rumi produced (known as Sufis and Devishes and so on) for example. All worthy of study in my opinion and certainly not un-aligned with mainstream Islamic thought. But there we are." Sincerely, Wahid

    Normally if you right click on your mouse you will see a list of options. One of them is called 'copy'. If you highlight the text you want to copy you will be able to save it on the 'clipboard' Then if you wish to transfer it somewhere you then right click on your mouse once more and you should see an option which says 'paste'. This should then enable you to transfer (paste) whatever it was that you originally 'copied' onto the clipboard. Except this doesn't seem to work on this forum! Let's see: Allah Now it's done it, so forget what I said!! Salaam, Wahid
  13. I wonder if this report regarding the woman throwing camel intestines at the Prophet is actual fact!? But the story raises some interesting questions in my mind anyway, some of which could be seen as insulting to the prophet. For instance: did this woman have some kind of a personal grudge against Muhammad, I wonder? And if so why didn't he speak to her to try and resolve it? And why didn't he simply travel via another route to avoid pasing her house? Or did he just travel that way once? Anyway, I have to say it does sound somewhat humorous, which to some people would be to turn the Prophet into the butt of a joke. Or is it actually meant to be funny, thus illustrating that some Muslims can be light hearted, even when speaking of the Prophet? The story would also, of course, show that Muhammad was a very tolerant human being, but perhaps unrealistically so, however. Also, another quote: "The pen is mightier than the sword". But I don't remember who said it. Salaam, Wahid
  14. I'm sorry but I think I've lost the thread of this post! Is someone suggesting that if only Muslims had 'more freedom of speech' then these atrocities wouldn't have happened!!? I would have liked to see more of a focus on the extremists and their 'Raison d'etre'. My question regarding the use of the words 'Allahu Akbar' and 'Bismillah er Rahman er Rahim' have been ignored. If no-one knows then fine. I don't know, that's why I'm asking. Regards, Wahid
  15. {sniff} Are You A Zionist?

    What does it mean to 'support the israeli terror state'? To recognise israel's right to exist as a country? Or to support it's militaristic activities? Or both. Or either? Salaam, Wahid

  18. Yes, I see. I think this hinges around the 'sacredness' of the prophet however. Insulting Islam is one thing but to directly insult the Prophet is quite another. Many Muslims say he means more to them than their family. How do they reach this conclusion? I don't know - I think it's a personal thing. There is a saying: "sticks and stones can break my bones, but words can never hurt me" What do you think of that? Wahid
  19. Perhaps I did miss the point. Could it have been hypocrisy? I just thought that any such minor observation would be to trivialise the whole matter of mass murder. And would it be true to say that the two main attributes of Islam would be Mercy and Compassion? I have heard the words: 'Bismillah ir rahman ir rahim' used before killing a chicken! But these 'terrorists', or Islamists' - call them what you like, according to all the reports I've read always quote them as saying: 'Allah hu Akbar' - 'God is great (or greatest) before killing their victims. Could it be implied, therfore, that power is more important than either Mercy or Compassion? Or have I got this wrong somehow? Thanks, Wahid
  20. Just to point out that there is a rather large diferrence between banning a protest demo, sacking somone for anti-semitic comments and murdering people in cold blood for drawings that they made .. WH
  21. Why Should Muslims Remain Silent About This?

    I was thinking mainly about Muslims on this forum. I was wondering what they thought But it seems to have become a 'Ghost Forum' of late. I can't say I know much about Islam in Indonesia, but I wouldn't mind betting that the president is getting worried that ISIS may well try and create an 'uprising' there. After all the dream of many Muslims has been the re-instatement of a Caliphate, for many, many years. I tend to think myself though, that it's a matter of BAMN now. (That's: 'By Any Means Necessary'). Why? I don't know .. Wahidian

  23. Caliphate Comments?

    So you disagree with the Forums rules? And then find it funny? You say: "First off- I DID NOT QUOTE ANYONE OR ANYTHING" - Exactly, that is the problem! You say: " Would you prefer it if I said Reuters ,API , Al Jazeera , CNN , etc ?" and this is the nearest you have come to naming any agencies which might mention your topics of interest.. I am referring to the rules here, which you don't appear to have any comprehension or respect for. This has nothing to do with my , or anyone else's views on specific subjects. I suggest that you please don't try and squirm any more. This has nothing whatsoever to do with my views on ISIS or any other groups. God help us ... wahid
