RE: free quran/koran
I'm extremely sorry I dropped by and shared a few houghts with you people. Extremely sorry because I thought We can have a civilised conversation in which I can help make a few clarifications about Islam or encourage you to read about it from a non hostile point of view. Obviously, I was wrong. All I was thinking is I had a jewel that I wanted to share its brilliance with you . You decided to tell me it's a cheap piece of broken glass and accuse me of willing to stab you (and your children) with it even before giving it a look. This breaks my heart. But what really shocked me is the bad things you said about me personally. I was extremely offended by GermanStar's and tcp_ML500's comments and conclusions and I'm wondering is this the way you always behave with people you differ with?! Is this how the freedom of speech is carried out?! Is thisthe best your Byzantine discussion attitude comes up with?! In my society, we call this bad manners and in psychology it indicates a serious case of inferior complex. Does this offend you? I'm practicing my share of free speech. Next time please behave when you talk to/about a lady.
I would like to make a clarification. As English is a foreign language to me, sometimes I make mistakes choosing words. That particularly happened with the word 'beat'. Husbands are not allowed to beat their wives in Islam. Consequently, I DO mind being beaten by my husand. Beating is severe. What is allowed is rather a pat on the the back of the hand or something (Slapping on the face is not allowed under any circumstances in Isalm nor beating/hurting
any human: wife, family members, servants nor even slaves). Just to convey the message 'you're doing wrong and it's time to stop'. This pat should
happen only after two stages of talking then stopping intimacy have failed respectively to convey the messsage. Understood? So don't think that domestic violence is allowed in Islam. It's one of the reasons alcohol is not allowed. Instead of throwing stones at our family life, check yours first. Mind you, your families are as fragile as glass and oh no I see so many battered women in there.
I don't want to forget a word of appreciation for AMSOIL300CDT who shared his knowlege on the Koran in brief and correct sentence "from the little i know of Islam, i know that the Koran speaks drasticly AGAINST violence..... and speaks of harsh penalties for those who dis-obey....." Your words give me hope that people who look for information from reliable source still exist. Thank you.
On Yvonne Ridley, the British journalist, please check this out:
"ISLAM is by far the most misunderstood religion in the world today thanks to centuries of medieval-style propaganda successfully peddled by bigots and Christian zealots"
"At least with Islam I need no mediator or conduit to rely upon, I can have a direct line with God anytime I want."
"While I feel under no pressure by Muslims to convert/revert there has been real pressure to walk away from Islam from some friends and journalists who like to think theyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢re cynical, hard-bitten, hard-drinking, observers of the world."
"The QurÃ¢â‚¬â„¢an makes it crystal clear that all Muslims, men and women are entirely equal in worth, spirituality and responsibility. Allah ordained equality and fairness for women in education and opportunity, at least that is my understanding."
Obviously, this lady decided to turn off the telly for a while to do some reading.
