  1. Sins Of Men In Comparison To Women

    This is not Islamic behavior you're talking about, it's how people in the middle east act culturally. What people in a given culture do is usually quite different from what the local religion says.
  2. Uncle Sam And Freedom Of Speech

    Freedom of speech only goes so far. You're free to speak until you infringe on other people's rights. When you go around spewing hate for the country you live in, you're gonna get in trouble.
  3. An Israeli Woman Exposes Western Culture

    Ok. Let me rephrase what you've said in a different context. simply making a point. "In my understanding, no one hates/dislikes muslims. I know that some people post information against what Muslims have been guilty of, which no one of another faith can deny. The terrorists (Al Quaeda) use their influence to manipulate the rest of the world through their supporters in the various governments of the middle east. But that does not in any way mean that they (the people who make the post) dislike Muslims, per se." In other words, if someone went and talked about how they hated Muslims, are you going to take the time to see if they really meant "Terrorists"? Frankly I think any person saying that would be banned, no questions asked.
  4. Islam in CANADA!!!

    I live near Vancouver, and can say that a 4 bedroom house outside of the Greater Vancouver Regional district, say in abbotsford is going for about $350,000. Inside the GVRD it depends on the municaplity. The west end, $500,000 easily. North Vancouver is similar. And whatever you do don't move to Surrey.
  5. Purpose Of Life

    I believe life has 3 purposes: 1.) To be Happy 2.) To recognize God's Latest Messenger 3.) To follow the Messenger's ordinances.
  6. An Israeli Woman Exposes Western Culture

    I think that is an example of being blind to what is happening in your forum. There are some members on this forum who very clearly dislike jews... And "dislike" being a softer word for what they really feel.
  7. Islam Does Not Support Suicide Attacks

    Out of curiousity, where in the Quran or Hadiths does the Prophet Mohammad, pbuh, say that 4 witnesses are required to punish the guilty party?
  8. What I think Supreme Athiest is also at least partially looking for, are Quotes from the Quran or the Hadith's the the Prophet Mohammad, PBUH, forbids such behavior. Saying "Islam is against this" is quite meaningless without at the very least some kind of scriptual back up.
  9. As a non muslim but still a religious person, this makes sense. No disagreements either. What is wrong with reading the bible? The old testament is surely the word of God, and the Words of Jesus in the Gospel and Revelation are surely the word of God. What Paul said in the Acts, Corinthians etc is debatable. How can muslims honestly expect to convert christians when you have scholars telling you not to read the bible for the enjoyment of reading the Word of God?? I did a search on "religion" and "nonbelievers" from a data base program I have that contains 4 different translations of the Quran. Nothing that immediately popped up. The only thing that grabbed my eye was this verse: "The same religion has He established for you as that which He enjoined on Noah-the which We have sent by inspiration to thee-and that which We enjoined on Abraham, Moses, and Jesus: Namely, that ye should remain steadfast in Religion, and make no divisions therein: to those who worship other things than Allah, hard is the (way) to which thou callest them. Allah chooses to Himself those whom He pleases, and guides to Himself those who turn (to Him)." (The Qur'an (Yusuf Ali tr), Surah 42)
  10. Best Ways To Not Insult A Muslim?

    I think the original subject was intended to be more than just talking about the differences between how women dress. I think there is too much immodesty in western dress. It certainly isn't virtuous. However, aside from that, women are NOT responseable for how men feel. How men feel is directly related to their own thoughts. And if they feel lust, it's because they've LET themselves have lustful thoughts and frankly, their dang fault. That aside, in my own experience with Muslims... I know that touching their Quran without washing your hands first is definately a no go. What else? Don't bother trying to shake a muslim woman's hand. Yeah, it's rude, but they'll be rude and refuse anyways.
  11. An Ancient Deception And Hatred

    Great... Another zionist conspiracy theory.....
  12. Life Insurance

    No, it's not. The insurance companies make a net profit in the end, but there are thousands of accidents every year. Most forms of insurance are a way of protecting yourself. Gamblers do not take bets to protect themselves. Gamblers take bets to make money. People buy insurance to protect themselves in the case of a disaster. How hard is it to make that distinction? And jsut as an aside, why are you basing your own opinion on a Fatwa rather than the Quran?
  13. Life Insurance

    No, car insurance still isn't gambling. Lets say I'm driving along and fiddling with something I've got in my passenger seat. Lets say I'm not paying attention and I hit the side of someone else's car. Lets say it's a man driving, and he is a construction worker and make's $50,000 per year, and has 20 years left on the job. Lets say I cripple him, and he will be in a wheel chair for the rest of his life. He is now unemployable in the field he's worked all of his life. In a court of law, I would be ordered to pay this man $1 million dollars, minimum. I would have to pay all of his medical fees and money to make up for the fact that I've ruined his career. There'd also be emotional damage etc etc. If I don't have the money, my insurance company will pay out, and I will spend the rest of my life paying the insurance company BACK, and with interest. This is plus whatever money my insurance company pays me for the destruction of my car and my own medical bills. In fact, I'm not sure I'd get anything. I have $2 million of car insurance for a very good reason.
  14. Life Insurance

    I don't know any direct quotes, but I can tell you quite straight that life insurance is an investment and a form of protection, not gambling. Nowadays, at any time you can cash in all of the money you've put into your life insurance policy. You can, if you wish, choose how the money you put into your life insurance fund is invested. It is also an excellent tax shelter as the government doesn't recognize it as an investment. (at least not in Canada) Basically, the reason it's bought is for protection. Lets say in the next 10 years I get married and have 4 children. Lets say my wife stays at home for the children and I work for maybe $80,000 per year. The children are 8,6,4 and 2. Then for the sake of argument, I die exactly 10 years from now. Then lets say, I have a $300,000 mortagage to pay off on my home. Also, lets say all of my children will go to university. At a cost of... $50,000 per degree. That's $200,000. So, for my wife to maintain her current lifestyle (being a homemaker) and taking care of the children by herself, she may have to hire a nanny. Lets say the Nanny's salary is $30,000 and she stays for 10 years. That's $300,000. Then, my wife needs $60,000 per year otherwise to pay all of the bills. And she'll need this money for 15 years. So now we have: $300,000 for the house $300,000 over 10 years for the Nanny $900,000 in living expenses over 15 years $200,000 to put my children through college. total: $1.7 million dollars. I would buy life insurance as an investment if I didn't die since at any time I can take money out of my policy and if I do die, there will be financial resources available for my wife and children so they are not destitute and impovershed. This view represents a fundamental misunderstanding of insurance. Gambling is quite distinct. When you are gambling, you are taking your money and making a wager in order to earn more money purely for material greed. This is not why people in the west buy insurance. The fundamental premise of insurance is quite different. The premise is that: I will pay X amount of dollars, and in the event something happens, I will be protected.
  15. Steroids

    While I'm not Muslim, here is a link to an excellent write up on the nature of steroids. It's written by a hardcore bodybuilder from California (the capital of bodybuilding in America) and is very well researched.
