Opting out of Islam Sub-forum

I always find the expression " people like you " so arbitrary. Anyone can say it, it means nothing, just a generalisation.

Good luck with your Islamic sub forum Mushtaq, " some people like me " find Islam an intimidating religion, full of people ready to criticise others, but are unable to see the lack of moderation in their own position.

Is there a way i can block my access to this sub forum, so that i can ensure i do not stumble into it unintentionally.

Islam does interest me as do many religions, but i am fearful of contravening your strictures on this thread.

The rest of the forum is magic and i enjoy it so much, i would despair of making a post in a section unwittingly that might jeopardise my membership.

Thanks in advance, Steve.

Steve,
Maybe if you read some of the answers you may not find it so intimidating, surely there is no harm in trying to get a better understanding of the religion of the people around you here predominantly.
I am sure if you did stumble in you could always stumble out.

Re: Opting out of Islam Sub-forum

Why are people being so difficult a the moment - is it because they are suffering from too much sun and heat??
We didn't have all these problems when Mushtaq opened up new forums for different sitesi's, why now??
My present husband is Muslim, but living with him is no different from when I lived with my Christian husband.
As for the question of why women are not allowed into mosques (camii's) or why they have to be in a separate area - apparently it is so that the men are not looking at their b****ms!!!!!!!!!!!!

This opt-out facility is there to not view the Islam sub-forum so as not to contaminate their minds and keep temptation away so they don't feel compelled to reply to threads in the Islam and Quran sub-forums.

Anyone who would like to opt-out please let me know and I will remove your access to that area.

Re: Opting out of Islam Sub-forum

Harem,

My husband is also a 'muslim' and although he's my first husband I'm sure I could make the comparison that he's just like 'any other christian husband'. But that's not the point.
The point is WHAT is Islam and what does the book say about how you should live your life?

It's fine if some 'muslims' don't want to live by the rules set out in the book, but it doesn't make the original book of rules fair or great; ask any woman in Saudi or Iran. If you were living in those muslim countries do you think you'd even be a member of a forum on the internet? I don't think so. What makes your or your husbands version of Islam more right than the 'strict' or extreme versions of Islam?

Are the people that follow Islam on this forum saying that Iran's interpretations and Saudi's intepretations of the Koran and Sharia law are incorrect when judging women in Islam?

What makes Turkish Islam right and Irans Islam wrong? It can't be that difficult to know what the translations of the Koran mean? It can't lead to such different lifestyles surely?

So which way of 'muslim' living is right? Just because you choose to live 'moderately' does not mean the other version of living is wrong, and that's why so many people feel strong opposition of Islam; it is degrading for women, they are seen as inferior to men, and this is something I have a problem with.

I have to learn about Islam for the benefit of my daughters, who I hope will never choose to become Muslim when they're old enough to decide, but if they do I will make sure they learn directly from the book and hadiths, and not from some moerate Turks interpretation of it; that to me is cheating!

For now I am opting out of further debate, but I will almost certainly still want to read about Islam.

I'm sorry it's caused so much friction, I oppologise to those Muslim members who have felt attacked or criticised, I hope we can all move on an let it go now,

Charlotte

Re: Opting out of Islam Sub-forum

Why fear when God lives within. There is no escape, God is everywhere . Regardless of any religion you choose or have. One God, one life, and a last breath when it dies out whispers oh God.

Re: Opting out of Islam Sub-forum

Mushtaq as i said in another post, i am interested in all religions, i do not consider religious study as contamination, i am surprised at your making such a subjective and impolite comment.

All religions are there to be studied, discussed, questioned and adhered to or not.

I just do not want to make a comment on your Islamic sub forum and get myself banned.

Steve.
